  8. Alaska lawmakers note: Obama-obsessed Congress is no role modelRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jan 12 | Anchorage Daily News

    Maybe I've missed this, but in the weeping and gnashing of teeth that is the Republican response to anything Obama does, where and when did they reveal their plan for health care in America? They keep attempting to repeal Obamacare, but I missed the announcement of their plan to replace it. Or do they just expect people with pre-existing conditions to go back to no coverage? That's one way to sock it to that kid born with diabetes.

  9. 'Must-have' LNG project will just stretch Alaska tighter over a barrelRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jan 11 | Anchorage Daily News

    In his first inaugural address, Ronald Reagan famously stated that "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem" -- hence the subsequent conservative mantra that unfettered capitalist free enterprise is the solution to our problems, and the only proper course for government is to get out of the way of private business. Strangely, our present conservative state government is now prepared to jettison conservative dogma in favor of transforming Alaska's government into the private sector via the "mother of all" projects: the Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas Project.

    Monday Jan 11 | Anchorage Daily News

    It's hard to be grumpy when your job requires you to wade through wild and remote rivers, but in the heart of my spring semester University of Alaska Southeast class on steelhead fly fishing I was more than a little frustrated by the fish of 10,000 casts. To be more specific, I was frustrated that it was taking me the requisite 10,000 casts while my students were nailing big steelhead on fewer than 100 chuck-and-ducks.

    Jan 10, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

  15. Juneau Access Road: Responsible development or economic and environmental disaster?Read the original story w/Photo

    Mar 19, 2014 | Anchorage Daily News

    OPINION: I can't help but wonder if the plan to build a road connecting Juneau to the rest of the continent is more about using public money to help develop private mining claims than it is for better, cheaper and safer access to the state's capital. In the next month, Alaska's Legislature will decide the future of the wilderness north of Juneau and the use of state and federal money for years to come.
