Again, the booze tax

In front of a sparse crowd and after rejecting a broad-based sales tax that actually would have helped property taxpayers, the Anchorage Assembly put on the April 7 ballot a 5 percent retail alcohol tax – the same tax voters rejected just nine months.

On again, off again

Good grief, you need a program just to keep up with whether the Recall Dunleavy campaign’s signature-gathering is on hold or can continue.

During his opening statement, the California Democrat accused Trump of attempting to use […]
