Camp Berkowitz

Nobody should be surprised that squatters and their tents have taken over a section of the Delaney Park Strip. After all, legislators and city officials pay scant attention to the law, why should what has been dubbed “Camp Berkowitz” be any different. The growing camp of protesters who oppose Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s defunding of homeless […]

If it seems too good to be true …

The way the talking heads and pundits are accusing Gov. Mike Dunleavy of telling a whopper or two or maybe three while campaigning for the state’s top executive post, it would be easy to believe he was the only Alaska politician who ever did such a thing. But he certainly is not – not by […]

Ensconced in a faux joint legislative session in the faraway state capital, she continues to refer to lawmakers who answered Gov.
