  • With all due respect to Peter Zuyus, I find his letter  to the editor (Jan. 16) about a proposal to limit the senior property tax exemption to be, at the very least, mean-spirited. ...

  • Thank you, Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly members Kelly Wolf, Wayne Ogle, Dale Bagley, Charlie Pierce and Sue McClure for your vote against Ordinance 2013-36 that would have raised taxes on about 20 percent of KPB seniors.   Your votes were a significant step in protecting senior benefits and...
