Establishments should have a choice in smoking rules

With some age and workplace restrictions, using tobacco products in this country is legal. And, with the proper permits, selling tobacco products is legal.

Presidential authority needs checks and balances

People who are happy with this country's status quo could probably care less whether Congress ever agrees on anything. Others who are not are frustrated with the lack of forward progress our legislative branch has provided over the past few years.

Add political parties to Do Not Call registry

Would anyone object if the Do Not Call list were amended to include sales pitches from political parties and political election surveys? The amount of phone calls from these entities this year has been overwhelming.

What are we fighting for?

As a Vietnam vet who served at Da Nang AB, RVN, in 67-68, I have an opinion the leaders of our government might want to listen to. That opinion is based by the following facts. The lives of over 50 thousand young Americans were lost in the Vietnam War. Why? What did our country gain from those sacrifices? In my opinion, nothing! North Vietnam, the enemy then, took over the entire country.

Remember the bottom line in military charge

I find it interesting the movement of an Air Force fighter squadron from Fairbanks to Anchorage is causing so much controversy. Naturally, Fairbanks doesn't want to lose the infusion of federal paychecks into their economy.

Shutting down VA services unconscionable

On October 8th, I received a message from The American Legion National Headquarters regarding VA public services closed because of the continuing government shutdown. Military men and women expect they may be sent to foreign lands to fight for our national interests. And, they realize they may be injured or killed while performing these patriotic duties. However, it is unconscionable that our government would choose to put them in harms way in our own country.

What happened to religious freedom?

I received an email from the National Headquarters of The American Legion today, the day after Christmas. It states that the Dallas VA Medical Center denied school children the distribution of handmade Christmas cards to veteran patients because the cards referenced the holiday by name - Christmas. The email further states that the VA Hospital in Augusta Georgia turned away school kids that came to sing Christmas carols as they have done the past couple of years. When the kids walked in, the VA gave them a list of songs that were permissible to sing, presumably non-secular.

Appropriation for hoops travel won't help Alaska's cause

I wonder how much sympathy our congressmen and congresswoman are going to get when requesting appropriations for Alaska in the future. Once Congress finds out our legislature and governor appropriated $2 million for individuals living in remote areas of the state to fly in to Anchorage to attend basketball games, I don't think it will be much. And, how can anyone associated with that decision justify it? Apparently, all the other needs of the state have been met. Amazing, utterly amazing!

Alaska energy price solution requires creative thinking

A couple of years ago I requested to be on the distribution list for Representative Les Gara's newsletter. I did this because a friend forwarded one to me and I found his opinions enlightening.

Could state build a large-diameter gas pipeline?

I wonder if anyone has really considered all aspects of the state building their own large diameter pipeline from the North Slope to tidewater?
