Shhh ... Don’t tell anybody, but guess which local youth sport/activity offers an opportunity to learn a great lifetime family sport, participate competitively and also provide the ability to build an individual scholarship fund along the way?

A few years ago, I had the chance to meet Paul Seaton and discuss some issues I was concerned about, for which he expressed strong support. Since then, I have been disappointed with his record.  He tends to get very low ratings from business advocacy groups. He gets high ratings from education ...

As sport anglers wind down with another abundant sockeye run and move towards pesky pinks and super silvers, let’s not forget our wild king salmon.

It is very depressing to keep hearing how much money our presidential candidates are spending for this next election. It seems there should be a fixed amount they can spend so it’s not up to who has the most money to be elected. It’s also very discouraging to hear all their back biting. Too bad ...
