I wrote the following to the senators on the Senate Finances Committee: “The Silencing Alaskans Act, House Bill 77, seems to be living up to its name.

Last week’s picture of the old Bishops Beach Skyview Theatre triggered an ancient memory for me wherein four or five of our family attended a showing there, probably in 1955, of the “Creature from the Black Lagoon.”  It was a long time ago, but I recall a bare Quonset building with perhap...
