Don't let Buccaneer/Weems on your property for seismic testing unless they pay you and post bond for property destroyed. Make sure they are totally insured. In consultation with engineers, they advised me that the seismic testing could cause problems twenty years down the line.  The thumping ma...

As a member of The American Legion, I always like to see good PR articles about the Legion in the local newspapers. The one this morning about Santa visiting Kenai's Legion Post for the childrens' party was heartwarming, to a point. In the article it states that that behind Santa "... clanked the gl...

I am astounded at the inconsideration of drivers on the Peninsula. Lights on bright, following so close if I had to come to a sudden stop, there is no way the driver behind me would be able to avoid hitting me. We are not in a big city folks; we live in "rural" Alaska. What is the hurry? Moreover, w...

Well, let's talk about lights then. Just east of Kenai is about 2 miles of the most dangerous and dark areas of roadway around. This year has seen several bad accidents and a few moose killed. The biggest problem is the drivers not having control of their vehicles, driving too fast and way too close...

Two news stories Thursday should set off alarms about Alaska's fiscal future. One on National Public Radio reported that oil production in Iran is plummeting due to lack of investment. The second came Petroleum News Alaska that North Slope production slipped below 600,000 barrels per day during FY 2...

I would like to thank all that came out to the Robert Johnson Ski clinic this past weekend. Although the weather was less than ideal, we still had a great time. I would like to thank Beemun's Bike Loft for being out there providing free ski rentals and Kaladi Coffee Company for providing the best co...

Sometimes, having a recognizable name can be a mixed blessing. More than once,  when I have presented my credit card at a restaurant, I get a chuckle from a waitress or waiter, they notice my name and say something like: "Alright ... I got Willie Nelson's autograph." Other times, however, peopl...

There's an old saying that "A lie can go around the world before the truth can get its boots on."  Advances in information technology, while mostly positive, have made this adage even more true.  Lately, much has been made across many media platforms about some myths surrounding Congressio...
