Dick Morris: Mr. Bush, You're President of America, Not Iraq - The defining issue President Bush needs to press in this election is domestic security against terrorism. Only by expanding the terror issue and relocating it from Iraq to the United States can he hope to win the votes of the women who are backing Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.).

Thus far, Bush's message has been the need to attack terrorists where they live and hide - in the "axis of evil" nations that harbor or support them. But he had not correlated this offensive with the need for domestic security. He needs to point out that we have not had a major terror attack for the past three years because we have the terrorists back on their heels, fighting close to home, hiding out in caves, and unable to pull off a Sept. 11 type of strike. - Read more...

Fish or Cut Bait by Bob Ciminel: New Member of the Family - Last Friday, my son gave me a kitten for my birthday. We sent him to the store for bread and milk; he came back with a 6-week-old kitten. He found it at one of those "Free to Good Home" kiosks. I wonder if the kitten's owners would have wanted money if we were a "Bad Home". How does one define a "Good Home" kittenwise? Is it a home with no dogs, or with a backyard full of small birds? - Read more...

Ketchikan - Dear Crabby: REGULAR GUY and SORRY SISTER - I want to know something. My girlfriend (Tiffany) is fun and cute, but she makes a big deal out of everything. I don't know if she's really upset half the time, or just acting over-dramatic because she wants to be the star of the show. Everywhere we go Tiffany has to get all the attention. Do you have a way to tell if she is ever going to be normal, or what her problem is? My friends can't stand her and my family thinks she's weird. I'm not sure what's going on. - Read more...

June Allen Column

photosAlaska's Deepwater Highway; A part of Alaska history - When the first Alaska state ferry sailed northbound through the Inside Passage of Alaska on its maiden voyage in January of 1963, there was rejoicing along the entire route from Ketchikan to Haines at the head of Lynn Canal! At last! Cars and even trucks and vans could now travel to and from isolated island-bound towns all along the 450-mile length of Southeastern Alaska's Panhandle. At either end they could roll off the ferry's ramp onto terra firma, connected to road systems north or south! The roadless towns of the famed Inside Passage finally had a "highway" from Prince Rupert B.C. to Haines, Alaska - even if it happened to be paved with salt water and used marine charts instead of road maps. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
