Negative campaigns hurt Alaska, nation

Once again today my mailbox was stuffed with attack ads and mudslinging. In just a week one of these candidates will be elected to office. He will be followed by the mistrust that has been developed during the campaign. Negative campaigning is not good for Alaska or the United States. This political division is not healthy for our country. We are one nation and we the people should work with elected officials who will do what is right for the country.
Navarre represents young and old

Please vote for Mike Navarre as he has a proven track record for young and old (like me). His staff, integrity and administrative ability are well proven. During the next years of growth we need a proven leader who can cope with challenges. He's a good man.
Conservation of king salmon should begin with the river

If the Fisheries Conservation Alliance was truly for conservation of king salmon it would have opposed all king fishing in the Kenai River from the beginning of this season! When and only when the escapement was sufficient would they be for some type of fishery for kings.
Clean sweep appreciated

Thanks to all our public officials and employees who made sure bike trails and highways were swept and clean of gravel for the upcoming summer season.
Keep kings in the Kenai

...power to effect what happens once the smolts leave the river, but we should do ALL we can to improve in-river survival of the kings from eggs to adults. We should enact his five main points. It's time to act. Bud Crawford, Kenai

...talented youth and community come together for a thoughtful examination of a complex issue. Don't miss it! Sammy and Bud Crawford, Kenai Seldovia music festival proves to be big success I would like to extend a great big thanks to the members of...
Kenai River habitat needs our help

...processes that seems to dominate our resource allocation decisions. The suppression of the "Boat Wake" study is one example that seems very politically motivated and could enlighten the public on the needs of the Kenai. Bud Crawford Kenai
'Unreasonable demands' should stop

...for all who inhabit this area. What is the value of clean water in your own backyard? Maybe the city of Soldotna should just give the "White House" to the KWF for all they do for the fish and wildlife of this area. Bud Crawford Kenai
Denali Kid Care deserves governor's support

I find it so interesting that Governor Parnell speaks in favor of helping children in Alaska, but isn't willing to fund them once they are born. The veto of funding for Denali Kid Care is not helping children who are in need of services now. Bud Crawford, Kenai
DOT project draws concern

...crazed dipnetters are heading down Kalifornsky Beach Road for access to the south beach of the Kenai River. If the highway department had waited two weeks they could have avoided inconveniencing many visitors and locals. Bud Crawford, Kenai
