Too bad

Now that President Barack Obama has taken his traveling dog and pony show back to Washington, D.C., we are left wonder why he did not see more of Alaska, although we suspect that did not fit in with his agenda. Going to Kotzebue and Kivalina and Seward and the Exit Glacier was a nifty start, […]

Obama’s sweet tooth

We note with more than a little interest President Barack Obama’s stop at a downtown Anchorage eatery, where he ordered a boatload of pastries to go – $18.25 in cinnamon rolls and muffins – before jumping on a helicopter to Seward to again offer his phony global warming spiel. “I’m about to go hike on […]

One for the states

A U.S. District Court judge in North Dakota handed the Obama administration a temporary defeat in its quest to gain jurisdiction over some smaller waterways by imposing stringent rules that would have cost millions and delayed projects unnecessarily.
