The Passing Seasons The thawing earth, the smell of rain, A hint of green, a bird’s refrain Tiny buds, and early blooms, These tell us that it’s Spring that looms. The beaming sun, the rustling leaves, A riot of flowers, grass waves in the breeze, Birds feeding their young, the air filled with...

According to the Begich campaign, among Dan Sullivan’s greatest sins is that he isn’t from Alaska. Since when do you have to be born in Alaska to hold a public office?  How long did Hillary Clinton live in New York before her  election to the U.S. Senate for that state? But I digress. ...

As I follow the media coverage of the proposed U.S. intervention in the Middle East, I can’t help but remember back to the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

I haven’t smoked marijuana in a long time. When someone passes me a pipe, I decline and say, I’ve already smoked my share. Even so, I support the legalization of pot.I do enjoy a craft beer, a glass of wine, an occasional brandy, or my summertime gin and tonic. It’s a good thing, most will agr...

I don’t believe many people realize that the city is proposing to allow helicopter facilities in the commercial lands along Kachemak Drive, in the Marine Industrial land out on the Spit, and in the Bridge Creek Watershed Protection District.
