Letters to the Editor

...and Sprague for their votes. Perhaps the next time this issue is raised before the assembly, those voting otherwise (Fisher, Davis, Long, Martin, and Merkes) will have reconsidered their positions. Thanks for serving, John Nelson Soldotna
Clarion editorial off the mark

...believe that today's teens need to be taught in high school -- at public expense -- that having a baby involves responsibilities? That a baby needs care and attention? Do today's kids learn nothing at home? Unbelievable! John Nelson Soldotna
Reader: Enough already of consumers, all to the benefit of commercial sportfishing interests. And as for the "economic engine" of Kenai River sportfishing, enough already. Someone needs to put a governor (no pun intended) on that motor. John Nelson Soldotna
Time for bickering done, it?s time for toleration had enough bickering? Competing interests are inevitable, but how we handle and resolve our competing interests is up to us. We can fight and bicker or we can try to understand and tolerate each other as neighbors. John Nelson Soldotna
Hospital board selection process should be reconsidered

...retain local ownership and control and board's continued inability to present a rational let alone convincing case for their position, it is time to consider making Central Peninsula General Hospital Inc. elected positions. John Nelson, Soldotna
Reader: Clarion editorial off the mark someone else to do it for us. Our borough assembly should consider dissolving CPGH Inc. and installing a new board, elected by the public, to oversee both Central Peninsula Hospital and South Peninsula Hospital. John Nelson, Soldotna
Something doesn't add up

...benefit or some corporation's bottom line. Let your borough assembly members know that the sale of our hospital needs to be put to the owners of the hospital on a public ballot. What we're being told doesn't add up. John Nelson Soldotna
Questions remain with CPH decisions

...operates Heritage Place, from shutting Heritage Place down? From going out of the nursing home business in our area? What guarantee would we have that our seniors would enjoy an area nursing home? Questions remain . . . . John Nelson, Soldotna
Hiring a borough manager a bad idea

...of mayor is our only check and balance against the power of the borough assembly. "The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse," said James Madison. John Nelson Soldotna
Increased restrictions a bad idea

...vulnerable to rising energy prices and the overall health of the nation's economy. Does anyone believe gas prices are going down? Increased restriction of the gillnet industry in favor of the sportfishing industry is a bad idea. John Nelson Soldotna
