4-5-2022 A Voting Day Message From A Treasured Alaska Philosopher*

(Opinion Column: Letter to the editor) A Voting Day Letter To Critical Thinking Citizens by Glen Biegel Dear Anchoragians (Anchorageites?): Glen Biegel   It's voting day. It's voting day because you really can't vote in person. There are 3 locations to vote: City Hall (hah!), the Loussac library, and the Town Center in Eagle River. Didn't know that, or you plan to stand in a 3+ hour long line on 'voting day' to vote? Ergo, today IS voting day.   The Day of Reckoning *I need your [...]

9-30-2021 Taxes On Energy Producers and Consumers Grow From Inflationary Government Spending and Regulatory Policies

Open Letter To Alaska's U.S. Senators Is this what Alaska's U.S. Senators want for their state and country? If so, we believe they will be joining the Dems to support porky infrastructure and socialized reconciliation.  This is not like past times when pork was routinely incorporated into legislation, but not mortally injurious to the Nation's future.  This time could come to be known as, "The End Game".  And maybe that outcome will be determined by Alaska's two Senators. -dh (Note: We believe that wasteful spending and rising [...]

3-19-21 Lest We Forget: Alaska Once Had A Stable Investment Climate!

  Lest We Forget: On March 18, 1981 Alaska Created Two Decades Of Investment/Tax/Economic/Social Stability Commentary by Dave Harbour (Video: Governor Jay Hammond and Legislature Define 'Fair Share' Of Petroleum Revenue 3-18-81 from Dave Harbour archives on Vimeo.) TRANS ALASKA PIPELINE SYSTEM (TAPS)  Four decades ago yesterday, Alaska created what was to be two decades of "quasi"-fiscal stability.  We say, "quasi" because even in the wake of "reform", politicians would continuously be seeking "more revenue". But let us begin the story this way.  1980-81 was an era when [...]

9-26-2020 Tongass Freed From Restrictive Roadless Rule

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 [...]
