Another vote for Murkowski
U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller, the man who will eliminate special interests and earmarks, wants to cut Social Security, Medicare and the Department of Education. He also wants to eliminate unemployment compensation for everyone, including the 55+ aged workers who have been laid off (so their companies won't have to pay them any retirement pay), and now cannot find jobs.

Miller deserves more respect
Love; hate; hypocrite; the lady from Soldotna who wrote concerning Joe Miller's Resume and his life story disappoints me. For some reason, someone thought by appointing him to West Point it was possible for him to be a good officer. I have known students from my state of Iowa who received this honor. It seems like he served time in the service and afterward started doing things to help take care of a growing family. There is not one mention of any crime he had committed.

Dual office not an issue
I am writing to express my displeasure with your Oct. 1 story, "Kenai voters could test new borough ordinance."

Miller now under scrutiny
Many of us Alaskans didn t pay much attention to Joe Miller or take the time to get to know him before the primary election. Well, Joe has got our attention now! However, Joe is taking every back door he can find to evade our questions about why his talk does not match his walk.

Which candidate's character should be questioned?
Joe Miller is questioning Lisa Murkowski's character because she changed her mind about running. Lisa has been a Republican her entire life; whereas Joe has changed his party affiliation at least four times.

Time for a four-lane road between Kenai and Soldotna
It is time to take the single lane road, called Kalifornsky Beach Road between the Sterling Highway and Bridge Access Road and make it a five lane road. Many are the travelers that are quite upset with having to put up with people that will not drive the speed limit, which is 45 and 55, people who are not confident in their driving, the big rigs that pull out when there is room and when loaded take quite some tome to get up to speed, and I could put in a few more reasons for the slow speeds. The left turn lane is used for passing, merging and at times left turns.

Verbatim: Teen's adventures soon to begin
When I was young, once a week I would run away to New York. I would pack my suitcase with my most prized possessions, consisting of my stuffed dog, Law, the novel "Anne of Green Gables," and a handful of coins. I would run out of my house calling out to my parents that I would probably never be back.
