Panhandle losing legislative power
Southeast could have one fewer resident in the Alaska Legislature next year. If it happens, it's something we should get used to. The next reworking of election districts will likely take away two lawmakers - one in the House and one in the Senate.

When more is better
The following editorial appeared in Saturdays Anchorage Daily News: Alaska Conservation Voters, a coalition of environmental groups, decided Friday to disclose more information about the sources for their political funding.

Letter: Up in smoke

Letter: Prop 4 would hurt public education
Proposition 4 is a bad idea for Juneau for several reasons, but it would be especially bad for education.

Prop 1 is environmentally sound
As a lifelong conservation activist I've fought hard to safeguard Alaska's wildlands and conserve critical fish and wildlife habitat. I'm proud that those efforts have directly resulted in the protection of tens of thousands of acres of quality lands, securing many valuable places for the public's use and enjoyment. When it comes to environmental issues, I know I've paid my dues, and then some.

Letter: Don't accept silence
I am voting NO on Proposition 1 on Nov. 7. If adopted, Prop 1 would amend the Alaska Constitution. It would prohibit residents from using the initiative process to vote on matters regarding wildlife.

Ballot Measure 1 limits the rights of Alaskans
It's ironic that so many residents up North seem willing to give away their voting rights if that's what it takes to prevent Outside money from influencing election campaigns in Alaska.

Biologists oppose politics of Ballot Measure 1
By now you've probably seen opinion pieces suggesting that wildlife biologists favor Proposition 1 to "protect Alaska's wildlife." They're telling you Proposition 1 would keep outside special interests from meddling with our wildlife and return management to the professionals. So why would people like us retired biologists with over 20 years each with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game urge you to vote no on Proposition 1?

Letter: Focus on youth
