As everyone knows our king salmon runs on the Kenai have been getting worse for years and most of the businesses and fishermen have suffered because of it.  No one knows for sure why this has happened but a lot of fingers have been pointed at the catcher/processors. Perhaps if they have more in...

Both personally and as the local representative of Trout Unlimited Alaska I would like to commend the Clarion for its recent editorial on Pebble Mine and the release of the EPA’s watershed assessment of Bristol Bay.

Last legislative session, our governor proposed an annual $2,000,000,000 tax break (for 10 years, with no strings attached!) for the companies that extract our oil and gas resources from the ground.

I don’t get the rationale behind HEA’s Minimum Energy Charge. They penalize HEA members $9.95 per month if we use less than 150 killowat hours each month.

Don’t be a chump. Vote yes on ballot measure 2 on August 28.  In territorial days carpetbaggers from outside ripped off our resources and took the profits south. Alaskans had little say in who got the fish, trees, oil and minerals or how they were managed. The Feds decided. The Feds and their...

Congratulations to the post 20 American Legion Twins Baseball Team on their winning the Alaska State Tournament. It was quite a feat to win seven straight games after losing the first game in a shutout. The peninsula should be very proud of the performance of this special group of young men. I belie...
