It’s been said that it’s wiser to deal with an undesirable but familiar situation than to risk a change that might lead to an even worse situation. The Unity Ticket held great promise until Bill Walker’s foolhardy decision to drive all the way from Anchorage to Sarah Palin’s lakeside home in...

Your vote is important! Let’s give new people a chance to go to Juneau. These three are hard-working folks who will bring stability to our state government at a time when the incumbents have spent our fortune unwisely. Please vote for Shauna Thornton, House District 30, Rocky Knudsen, House Distri...

What does the phrase, “buying the election” mean? It seems kind of hyperbolic. I mean, we each have a mind, right? We each have a vote. Nobody can buy that. But I’m finally understanding it, I think. The other day I was singing to my eleven-month-old granddaughter one of our favorites, “Zip-...

Once again today my mailbox was stuffed with attack ads and mudslinging. In just a week one of these candidates will be elected to office. He will be followed by the mistrust that has been developed during the campaign. Negative campaigning is not good for Alaska or the United States. This political...

Would anyone object if the Do Not Call list were amended to include sales pitches from political parties and political election surveys? The amount of phone calls from these entities this year has been overwhelming....

Alaskans can all agree that privacy is our right. We don’t like people telling us how to live and we don’t like the government nosing into our private lives. So it’s very troubling that U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan does not value privacy like we do. Yes, he will tell you every chance he ...

The Kenai Peninsula Hockey Association recently hosted the Peninsula Power Play Hockey Tournament October 24-26. Nine teams from across the state participated. We would like to thank the following local businesses for their generous donations: Espresso Barn, Peterkin Distributors, McDonalds, Dairy Q...

Unqualified for both jobs, his actions ...
