I wonder if anyone has really considered all aspects of the state building their own large diameter pipeline from the North Slope to tidewater?   Costs of the project would probably run in the billions and the question of where the funds would be appropriated from, can they be recovered over a ...

When Alaska's economy collapsed in 1986, there wasn't a single spec home built in Anchorage for six years. Apartments and condos didn't resume in quantity for 12. That's typical of how long it takes for economies to turn around. When Bush took office, thanks to eight years of Clinton's policies, the...

Last week my wife and I were out dipnetting and had trouble with the fuel filter. A Kenai River guide and his wife took time out to tow us to the dock. I just wanted to say thanks for the help....

The Kenai Peninsula, like all of Alaska, is facing some tough choices in this election cycle. I would not presume to advise you on how to vote, but I can say you have sent the legislature an extraordinary man in Tom Wagoner. I did not know him before he showed up in Juneau. Tom first got my attentio...

This week, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game closed commercial fishing for east-side set netters on the Kenai Peninsula due to a low king salmon return.

All is quiet on the beaches of Cohoe this July. An eerie silence has taken over what normally is tuned out by the bustling of clanking boat trailers, unmuffled beach trucks and outboards hitting the water. It is a sad and desperate time for the set netters of the Eastside. Set-net fishing has been a...

The so called attempt to save the Kenai River king salmon on the backs of the eastside setnetters is the biggest boondoggle I've ever witnessed in my lifetime by the so called experts employed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. I was born here in Alaska in 1949, have spent almost all of my 6...

2012 is a sad year for the Kenai Peninsula, both for the residents and the tourists, ie, few king salmon in the streams and rumors of mushy halibut in Cook Inlet will dramatically impact its economy. And all the second guessers are having a field day -- how could this catastrophe happen? Regarding o...

I have had the amazingly unique opportunity to grow up in Ninilchik and started commercial set-netting at the age of 14 on the east side of Cook Inlet. I continue to return each summer from South Carolina to work for an operation close to my home town. I also take part in the sport fishing on the Ke...
