What do you think is the greatest threat to our democracy? Socialism, tyranny, guns, every politician, any political party you don’t like? None of these. The greatest threat is voter apathy.  How could you be satisfied with the results of an election if only 23 percent of voters turned out to...

I believe Mark Begich is the best candidate for U.S. Senate in this coming election. Born in Alaska, he understands Alaska’s people, geography, minerals and wildlife.  I look at his congressional record and this is what I see: He is a champion for public education and he believes that cuts to...

 Just a few more days and we can start to get this nation back on the course to greatness. Greatness that was once based on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The basic notion that anybody or, what I really mean is, Anybody, can, with their own effort and determination, achieve  w...

We are confused out east. Aargh. Sarah, we need help. Will the real Dan Sullivan please stand up? It’s another Lindauer riding the coattails of money.
