It’s refreshing to find a politician who follows through on his campaign promises. It’s even more rare to find one who says what he means and means what he says.

Letter: Ownership and freedom

Gov. Jay Hammond created the big equalizer of the owner state: the Permanent Fund. For 35-plus years it worked as it should.

Letter: Budget thoughts

Letter: The dividend and its effects

Letter: A lower-cost traffic solution

Letter: Don’t cut essential services

Those who feel that government should provide them with roads and Alaska State Troopers without a penny of support from them is wrong.
