In a July 22 letter to the editor in the Alaska Dispatch News, Marv Greene was right in his assessment of the dangers of dipnetting from a boat on the Kenai River. More and more Alaskans are dipnetting every year. My friends and I have been dipnetting the Kenai River since the inception of that pers...

Two thumbs up and a sincere compliment for the two outstanding articles on dip netting by Megan Pacer on your front page, July 20.

I am deeply grateful to Governor Bill Walker. Thank God that a compassionate, levelheaded adult intervened and expanded Medicaid, and shame on the leadership of the Majority Caucus for not allowing Medicaid expansion to come up for a vote by our lawmakers.

Recently, I spent a week with our EMTs, ER, ICU, Central Peninsula Hospital and Providence Hospital in Anchorage.
