National Voter Registration Day

Tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 25 is designated as National Voter Registration Day in the United States.

This opportunity will be presented to our community as well. The League of Women Voters will have a presence at IGA Foodland from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. tomorrow. This is another opportunity for you to register to vote or to change your address of record for voting.

A visit to the web site http://www.VOTE411.org is yet another opportunity for you to register or change an address before the election. At the Vote411 web site you can also learn the latest on your polling place. We welcome you to join us tomorrow or to visit the VOTE411 web site.

You can also visit the Alaska Government web site at http://www.alaska.gov to learn more about registering to vote or changing your address of record to vote in Alaska. When you enter the web site, type in Division of Elections in the Search box and you are there! This site provides valuable information about the many places where you can go to register to vote, what is needed to register, as well as the polling locations.

Our freedom and right to vote cannot be dismissed lightly. If we do not do our very best to decide for ourselves and to encourage others to decide for themselves with our vote, we shall come to understand that someone else has done this for us. We simply must not discard this right.

Letter: Wrong place for the whale

In my opinion, our city fathers exercised bad judgment in locating the whale sculpture where they did. It is hidden from view. Read more

Letter: The case for a public Bank of Alaska

Last October, the good folks in the Kenai Borough approved creation of two new pieces of paper called a bond for infrastructure projects. Read more

Letter: A state income tax is fair and equitable

The courage and integrity of our legislators will be tested. Last year they failed to step up to the plate. Our courageous governor had the fortitude to do so. The time has come for Alaskans and those who work here to pay for the services received. Read more
