The person who stole my pumpkin flag from my mailbox should return it.

What's up with the Driftwood art being used for political symbols?

SeaAlaska Heritage Foundation needs to catch up on the topic of Chilkat weaving. There are approximately 14 very active native Chilkat weavers up and down the coast from Anchorage to Vancouver and many more on the way.

I'd like to know if the University of Alaska Southeast is going to keep Bruce Wright on as a part-time professor.

I've been impressed with the Empires news coverage in the past few weeks. Its much more balanced and thorough than it has been it the past few years.

From 1975-91 marijuana was legal in Alaska, teenage drug use was down 75 percent, crime rates were cut in half. I implore you, do your own research. Only we can end the war on drugs. Vote yes on measure 5.

Tony Knowles says they have no test to tell if a driver is on marijuana. If we look at what the government has been telling us all these years it should be easy for a cop to spot you. I think theyve been feeding us a line about this product for years. Alcohol is far more devastating.

About the 10 mill property tax, I don't think this would be on the ballot if property tax issues were not voted on by everyone. Property tax increases should only be voted on by property owners. I resent the fact that other people can vote whether I pay property taxes. Vote yes on Proposition 4.
