Colleagues: The recent full exemption of the Tongass from the roadless rule is a positive event in these trying times. Towns and villages in Southeast existed long before the Tongass was designated as a national forest. The ability of our people to build futures for their families is a fundamental priority, which can be balanced with environmental concerns; the roadless exemption provides for this balance. The people of Southeast Alaska are benefitting from this action by a thoughtful administration. Sincerely yours, Don Habeger Executive Director First Things First Alaska [...]

The Nazis, Soviets, Venezuelans, Sandanistas, Cubans, and Pol Pot leaders all referred to their governments as "socialist". Alaska's democrats in 2016 voted to elect a socialist president. We believe a growing segment of America's younger generation is unaware of how socialist propaganda and unrealistic promises lead to inevitable misery and eventual collapse of socialist societies. The death of the United States as we have known it is within the grasp of her enemies, both without and within. Only a herculean effort, equal to the commitment, sacrifice, and endurance [...]

A Plea For Federal Lawsuit Protection Among others, restaurants will never be the same —if they fully recover at all. Distancing is impossible for chefs and others. Wiping down everything thoroughly and consistently after every guest is impossible. Masks are uniformly worn by employees? Forget it. Consistent enforcement of bureaucratic rules for every bar and Restaurant will make customer service wait staff into Gestapo agents. There may only be one fighting chance -- right now -- for Congress/POTUS to enact medical lawsuit restrictions and ironclad protection to businesses and [...]

I used to feel lucky that I survived the support industry layoffs that happened from 2015-2018, when more than 6,000 Alaskans lost their jobs. I don’t feel so lucky anymore. Because of what’s happening with [...]
From the Allliance: "Open for Business? AKDOT takes $49m in CARES relief funds –threatens struggling AK companies with 10.5% interest penalty." The Situation: The Department of Transportation & Public Facilities took money intended to be used for “relief” and responded by threatening a 10.5% interest penalty on late payments from struggling Alaska businesses –on top of already onerous lease increases. 18 months prior to the current public health emergency, Alaska companies asked the administration and DOT&PF to review the steep, and in our review some cases unlawful, rental increases implemented by the Walker administration [...]
