Use of bait a setback for king salmon recovery

This is no time for bait on the Kenai River. Just when things are starting to turn around for king salmon Fish and Game allows bait. Greg Brush is clearly correct in his article on assessing the situation on the Kenai. I see this as a real setback for revitalizing the king salmon run on the Kenai River.
Joy riders leave drivers in the dust

I' m so concerned about the joyriders in the dust (four-wheelers, dirt bikes and side-by-sides) riding at full speed along major highways.
Ruffner deserves support for fish board

I am writing to strongly urge the legislature to confirm Robert Ruffner for the Board of Fish. As director of the Kenai Watershed Forum he has put fish first. He is a logical intelligent thinker with a common sense approach.
Action on fish board candidate disheartening

It is so disheartening to see the well qualified candidate for board of fish, Robert Ruffner, turned down by the legislature. I hope that voters and citizens will realize that partisan politics have no place in Alaska's future.
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.

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
'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
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
