Reader asks questions on horsepower issue
Does anyone really think that the alleged Kenai River hydrocarbon pollution problem is caused by anything other then too many motors running in the river? Has anyone in the decision-making process seen the glut of boats that hog the river and force transiting boats too close to the bank where their wakes hit the banks at full force and cause them to crumble?

Reader: Wake up America
It seems to me that the American people need to wake up to the fact that the Muslims are trying to dominate our way of life. If we let Muslims decide our politics, we as a society will be in trouble.

Reader voices strong opinion on atheists
It’s time to stomp out atheists in America. The majority of Americans would love to see atheists kicked out of America. If you don’t believe in God, then get out of this country.

Writer: Where’s the consumer’s side?
Regarding your article on Friday regarding the IPHC decision to limit charter clients to one fish for a small part of the charter season season: I am not surprised that once again the U.S. consumer was left out of the story. You quote Ms. Bondioli as saying, “The demand for halibut will be there.” It’s a shame to limit access to a public resource.

Same-sex benefits should go further
Much clamoring has been going on for the benefits ordered by the court for same-sex couples. If you want the cookie, you have to have some crumbs with it. If you want the perks you have got to face the same legal hassles as the rest of us.

Children come first
Has anyone else had it with budget cuts affecting our children? Year after year I sit back and watch it happen.

Reader: Let’s just keep fishing
Let us fish the Kenai River until all the fish are gone.

One fish not worth the trip
I live in Kansas City but come up to Alaska each summer. In addition to keeping an RV in Anchorage, I purchased a lot in the Kasilof area on Crooked Creek.

Watershed Forum seeks pollution solution
In terms of reducing hydrocarbon pollution in the Kenai River, the more that can be done locally, the better, according to the executive director of the Kenai Watershed Forum.

Flood threat not yet gone
Residents of low-lying areas along the lower Kenai River were spared flood worries Monday morning, until an ice jam formed above the outlet of Slikok Creek in the afternoon.

Ice jam stuck at Soldotna bridge
A massive ice jam plugging the Kenai River broke loose from Swiftwater Park and made it as far as the Sterling Highway bridge in Soldotna on Sunday, giving curious onlookers a sense of how powerful and destructive the ice has been.

Proposed Pebble gives mining industry a black eye
I have the highest regard for former Speaker of the House Gail Phillips and understand her desire to stand up for Pebble Mine, as she is personally deeply rooted in Alaska’s rich mining history.
