Kodiak Daily Mirror - Daily newspaper of Kodiak, Alaska
  
 
Paper supports diverse viewpoints
To the Editor: I read with interest and some disbelief Mr. Craig Olson’s letter expressing what is basically his unhappiness with the First Amendment. He was angry with this newspaper for publishing Heather Peterson’s view of the GOP’s campaign strategies. There hasn’t been a peep from Mr. Olson (unless I missed it) when Art Zimmer and his broad-minded letters are published. Nor Ron Fox, and his advocacy of string...

Guest Opinion: Bike path worth the money
After two work sessions this the city has balked at entering an agreement with Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities to design and construct the first phase of a multi-use path from downtown to Bell’s Flats. The project would connect Pier 2 to Deadman's curve, with subsequent phases extending to Bell's Flats. Such a path would make travel safer for pedestrians and cyclists, reduce our dependence ...

American people just destroyed our country
To the Editor: The worst thing that could happen, Obama was reelected. The American people just destroyed our country, our freedom, the Supreme Court, gun control and registration and confiscation, treaties with the United Nations and atomic weapons. We are doomed to tyranny and a dictatorship in this country, and when the money is all gone, there will be riots, burning cars, civil disobedience, redistribution of ...

Letters not supposed to be mean spirited
To the Editor: I was under the impression letters to the editor were not supposed to be mean spirited, vile and nasty, yet the Mirror has allowed that with the ongoing Heather Peterson rants. No matter what side of the aisle you are on, they are embarrassing. I say shame on the paper for printing them, and lady, seek counseling. Craig Olson

Republicans sent out hateful messages to rile up voters
To the Editor: Romney lied that the reason doctors aren’t taking Medicaid is because the money has been rerouted to Obamacare. On one hand, Romney championed Obamacare in his home state. On the other hand, he campaigns that he will repeal it. Ignorance breeds hate. That is the No. 1 reason Republicans always cut education, then send out hateful messages to rile up the voting base. I’ve heard comments like, “I’m no...

People don't understand the gun situation
To the Editor: The assault rifle in books is like the M15, a fully auto rifle when the lever is used. The assault rifle is semi auto like rifles and shotguns used for hunting. You pull the trigger each time to fire. Sportsman like the accuracy of it and the looks for hunting, target shooting and rifle sports. Obama says 'It's got to be taken off the streets." If he wants that rifle, go visit Mexico and get a thous...

The facts about the oil and gas policy
As the business trade association for the oil and gas industry in Alaska, the Alaska Oil and Gas Association (AOGA) provides factual information about the state’s largest private sector industry. Alaskans have been bombarded by 30-second sound bites and bumper stickers over the last several months, but oil and gas policy is rarely explained accurately in short political statements, so I’d like to highlight a few f...

Kodiak needs to catch Mat-Su Valley in recycling
To the Editor: We dump 33 tons of garbage per day in Kodiak. If we can't reduce the amount of trash we generate, then we need to change our mindset about recycling. Reducing the amount of trash we generate is best, and reusing items is a great idea, but out of what is left after that large part is recyclable. Somehow, in Kodiak, we just don't measure up the recent numbers that compared our recycling to the recycli...
