Kodiak keeps rural status

Full story: KTVA Anchorage
Kodiak maintained its rural status, but other areas of Alaska weren't so lucky. The Federal Subsistence Board at a meeting yesterday in Anchorage reassessed the status of several areas. Full Story

I would like to challenge the Federal Subsistence Board members to adopt a life style
like the people in the rural areas do. An income of less than a thousand (1,000.00) dollars
and not do subsistence living. With this very reduced income let's see them pay for fuel
at the high prices we have to pay, pay high rent, pay for groceries that are high priced,
and then have to pay for a plane ride to a medical facility that is not in their community.
Let them have to pay for medication that is expensive and try to save for an emergency or
out how to buy presents for a family members birthday or clothe their family on clothes
that you buy through a catalog or buy locally at a high price.
