Treadwell is the best choice
To the Editor, On Tuesday I am voting for Mead Treadwell and you should as well. Of the three candidates in the Republican primary I believe Mead Treadwell is far and away the most qualified, knowledgeable and able candidate. I have known Mead for nearly 30 years and have been impressed with his wide range of knowledge and experience in Alaskan matters. Mead has worked extensively in private industry and understan...

Austerman wrong on Stutes facts
To the Editor, At Tuesday night’s candidate’s forum Carol Austerman misrepresented the facts when she accused Louise Stutes of having sued the Borough shortly after being elected to the Assembly, which action Ms. Austerman then went on to equate with a lack of fiscal responsibility on Ms. Stutes’ part, supposedly because the lawsuit cost the Borough a good deal in legal fees and costs.

Repeal the resource giveaway
To the Editor, Regarding Prop 1, vote yes to repeal the resource giveaway! Big oil has spent millions of dollars trying to hoodwink the citizens by their propaganda.

Stutes best choice for District 32
To the Editor, Louise Stutes is the top choice for District 32 to represent us in Juneau. I am here in Kodiak for 50 years and have seen and listened to all candidates all these years and have observed them and found the only one that is honest and knowledgeable is Louise Stutes. She listens to the people and studies everything before she votes on issues. She is a wise voter on all issues. She is the only mature p...

Vote ‘yes’ on Tuesday
To the Editor, This upcoming Tuesday, Aug. 19, is a very important election day for Alaska voters. On this date Alaskans will vote on whether to reject, or not, the diverting of over $1 billion annually of oil royalties from the State of Alaska treasury to BigOil shareholders.

Intravenous needles turn up around Kodiak
Carelessly discarded needles from intravenous use are turning up around Kodiak, and they pose a significant risk to people who come across them. “Of course, we don’t know who’s used that so we don’t know what kind of communicable diseases might be associated with the possibility of other’s people’s bodily fluids, blood being on those needles,” said Kodiak Police Chief Ronda Wallace. “So people run risks of being p...
