  16. Proposal to close rural schools strikes at heart of Alaska, Native and non-Native alikeRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 3, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

Lynn Gattis, R-Wasilla, to close rural schools with 10 students, or even less than 25, is deeply hurtful to rural Alaska -- Native and non-Native -- the heart and soul of what Alaska has always been about. Given the great pain and population displacement such closures would cause, I believe that we in Alaska need to make very clear that we can and must do better than that in dealing with state budget issues.

    Dec 30, 2015 | Anchorage Daily News

    It's hard to believe that in just one year we traveled from MTV's Busch Light-fueled "Slednecks " to a wholesome, boring, several-hours-long Thanksgiving special of "Alaska Railroad."
