OPINION: Randy Bates of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game isn't playing straight with Alaskans about either the process or the purpose of revising plans for state game refuges, sanctuaries and critical habitat.John Strasenburgh
OPINION: State Democrats and Bill Walker make a political match that kisses off principles -- and can't possibly last.Paul Jenkins
OPINION: Walker's letter, abortion reversal raise questions about his judgment.Michael Carey
OPINION: Choose respect? Parnell failed to do so for years with respect to the Alaska National Guard.Shannyn Moore
OPINION: The job of the state Division of Insurance is clear "to regulate the insurance industry to protect Alaskan consumers,” not to boost the Parnell and Sullivan campaigns with misleading documents long on advocacy and short on analysis.Dermot Cole
OPINION: In defending his veto of SB 108, Gov. Parnell is inexplicably blind to the assault on American civil liberties that Alaska's public court information system currently amounts to. Every Alaskan should take note of his view of their privacy and due process rights and his distrust of our justice system.Sen. Fred Dyson
OPINION: A feeble response from a member of the Bar Association board to recent criticism of the bar's procedures to handle grievance and discipline of attorneys should concern everyone.Jeffrey Todd Brown
OPINION: In my 44 years of Alaska residency, this state and its university system have become increasingly like too many large corporations -- with goals of greed, overpaid executives, and excessive profits and shareholder returns.Thetus Smith
OPINION: On the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, it's worth contemplating the fact that Alaska has more wilderness today than it did 100 years ago.Craig Medred
OPINION: Anyone who runs for lieutenant governor in Alaska promises to be a “new kind of lieutenant governor,” as in one who has something to do other than guard the state seal and see if the governor has a pulse. But if the new ticket opposing Gov. Parnell wins, Byron Mallott may, out of necessity, be the one who follows through.Dermot Cole
