KGH Chief Executive Officer/Chief Mission Officer Patrick J. Branco was also selected as the new Chair of ASHNHA at the conference. "I am honored to be the new ASHNHA Chair and look forward to hosting next year's conference in Ketchikan," Branco said. "I am also delighted and proud of the acknowledgement from Mountain-Pacific. This award is another reassurance to people that they can come to KGH confident they will be given the best possible care."

The award is based on a review of performance data submitted to the QIO Clinical Warehouse which stores hospital-reported data for both quality measurements and public reporting for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Based on this review, Ketchikan General Hospital had the highest scores in the state. - More...

Alaska: Federal Wilderness Proposals in ANWR Blasted - Alaska Governor Parnell (R) and Alaska's United States Senators Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski reaffirmed their opposition to any plan or wilderness review process that further encumbers the potential for oil and gas development on the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

Governor Parnell's comments come in response to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's announcement that the agency will conduct wilderness reviews for three Wilderness Study Areas for potential inclusion within the National Wilderness Preservation System.

"It is incredible that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to increase wilderness designation and lock up 11 billion barrels of oil," Governor Parnell said. "Through a detailed letter from Attorney General Dan Sullivan, and through other correspondence, my administration has repeatedly questioned the legality of this maneuver by the federal government, and yet we have not even received a response concerning the legally suspect course that Fish and Wildlife is choosing to follow.

"Oil and gas development in the Section 1002 coastal plain would provide secure on-shore domestic supply of energy for the nation, create tens of thousands of jobs throughout the country, and ensure the continued operation of the trans Alaska Pipeline System for years to come. Alaska will not allow the federal government to lock up more land without a fight."

The governor noted that oil from ANWR could help meet U.S. demand for 25 years or more and that development is compatible with the protection of wildlife and their habitat.

"We think we have strong legal options to prevent these unwarranted federal actions," Governor Parnell said.

United States Senator Mark Begich (D-AK) today in a news release opposed the efforts to ban ANWR development by Democratic Senators. Begich says the Arctic Oil and Gas Development should be part of national energy plan.

Begich said permanently prohibiting oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is irresponsible, U.S. Sen. Mark Begich today took on three Democratic senators for their efforts to expand wilderness in ANWR.

In a letter to all 59 Democratic members of the U.S. Senate, Begich said the 16 billion barrels of oil believed beneath the Arctic Refuge should be part of a national energy plan which is focused on increasing domestic oil and gas production. - More...

Alaska: State Efforts Lead to Timber and Mining Jobs - Alaska Governor Sean Parnell welcomed the official opening of the Kensington gold mine 45 miles northwest of Juneau, saying the administration's aggressive strategy in initiating or intervening in lawsuits is having the desired effect of protecting resource development jobs in Alaska.

The governor also hailed a ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy M. Burgess upholding the Forest Service's decision on the Slake and Diesel timber sales on Prince of Wales Island. That ruling, sought by the Department of Law, likely prevents the Viking Lumber Co. from being forced out of business.

"The opening of the Kensington mine, with the creation of hundreds of well-compensated jobs, and the favorable timber ruling demonstrate why the State of Alaska should not hesitate to intervene in cases that threaten to cripple our ability to develop our resources responsibly," Governor Parnell said. - More...

Alaska: UA Regents keep original 2012 tuition increase; 2013 rates to be decided later; Study on social and economic impacts of UA's 13 community campuses released - The University of Alaska Board of Regents decided last week to maintain the original amount for 2011-2012 tuition, without an additional increase, and delayed action on the 2012-2013 rate until November.

The originally approved rate for 2011-2012 was a 5 percent increase for 100-200 level courses and a 10 percent increase for 300-400 level courses. Graduate tuition would not increase. That original board action was taken in September 2009 and will remain in effect.

Per UA policy last April, former UA President Mark Hamilton, with the support of the three chancellors, put forward a proposal to increase the 100-200 course rate by an additional 5 percent, resulting in a 10 percent increase for all levels except graduate. While board policy allows the board to revise previously approved rates, many board members were reluctant to do so.

"We made a deal last year. I think that's a deal we need to honor," said Regent Erik Drygas of Fairbanks.

The board also decided to delay action on rates for the 2012-2013 year, opting instead to have the administration review, among other recommendations, a 7 percent increase. The issue will now come before the board at the Nov. 9, 2010 meeting. - More...

letterAFFIRMATIVE LIBRARY VOTE By Pete Ellis - Be sure to vote YES on the bond proposition. A new library will present new horizons and a modern and up-to-date facility. The present library in the Centenial needs also to move in order to afford more space for the museum and its tourist attraction features. - More...
Thursday AM - September 30, 2010

letterRE: Unanswered Questions By Art Bailly - I agree with Ken Holmes 100%. Let's do some quick math. 40 hrs a week for 50 weeks = 2000 hours a year divided by $170,000 year salary = $85 an hour not including all the other benefits = Outrageous. You have got to be kidding me with all of the city's and borough's budget problems and increasing taxes we give someone a raise of this magnitude when other city employee's wages are frozen. Things that make you go Hmmm. Just one of many examples of items that should be brought to a vote by city residents before approved. - More...
Thursday AM - September 30, 2010

letterWriting-in Murkowski By Bill and Linda Auger - We attended the Meet and Greet for Joe Miller on Monday evening at the TFCC.  While Joe Miller's goal of getting federal lands into state hands sounds great, how does he plan on making that happen?  At the height of their power in Washington, D.C. with a Republican President in office, Senator Ted Stevens as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and attaining the rank of president pro tempore (third in rank in succession to the president), Senator Frank Murkowski and Representative Don Young both serving as Chairman of important Senate and House committees, could not make that happen. - More...
Thursday AM - September 30m 2010

letterJoe Miller By Sheila Gwizda - I realize that politics can be a nasty business and running for office, unfortunately, can get ugly. Sometimes when one candidate attacks another, it s not only necessary to defend a position or character, but sometimes to counter it with his or her own assault. But, I d like to share one interesting observation with you. - More...

letterThank You By James Schenk - Thank you to everyone who posts positive information here, especially you Chaz, I am very proud to count you as a friend and asset to this community. I wish to encourage you to run for any office that may appeal to you so you can bring common sense and economic expertise to our local political offices that seem to lack these essential qualities, with a few exceptions such as our Fantastic Borough Mayor who was also raised here and understands this community and adds to its character every day. - More...
Thursday AM - September 30, 2010

letterLanguage of common sense By Ken Lewis - Dr. Sarah Elaine Eaton & Donald A Moskowitz debate the need for multi languages and I can't help but laugh. Here is a quick true story, and funny as heck. My mom retired the President of a business, I will leave nameless. Decades prior to that she owned a medical admin service in California before it was bankrupt, taking dictation and all that silly stuff. She was the go-to administrator of a man who owned the first floor of South Bay Hospital in Southern Cal. That meant emergency room, Radiology and multi other sections. - More...

letterIS KETCHIKAN A GHOST CITY? By Joey Garcia - Year end and year out, the Salmon Capital of the World, the Gateway City, resembles a city where the residents are deprived of the summer fun, except for the repair of the drainage systems and the refurbishing of paint along crosswalks and parking areas. - More...
Thursday AM - September 30, 2010

letter Enough already By Sue Ellen Smith - When will there be enough comments made about Ketchikan General Hospital? Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and usually those that do have one make it known to all that will listen. I think way too much is being said. But after some thought and looking at the comments made I figured I should put my two cents in. - More...

letterPlease vote 'Yes' on City of Ketchikan Proposition 2 on October 5th. By Chief Jim Hill - Your 'Yes' vote - on October 5th - on "Prop 2" authorizes construction of a new downtown fire station. Prop 2 is on the ballot for very simple, yet critically important reasons. Essentially, the 'old' fire station ---built in 1943--- is too small, worn out, used up, and simply cannot meet the mission which the Ketchikan Fire Department (KFD) is required to perform. - More...
Tuesday AM - September 28, 2010

letterVote No on KGB Prop 3: EMS and Fire By Ed Fry - Having had the privilege to serve as a Firefighter and Paramedic for over 20 years and the honor to teach administrators how to plan resource allocation and needs assessment, I do not support Proposition 3 and will vote no. - More...
Tuesday AM - September 28, 2010

letterUnanswered Questions By Ken Holmes - People of Ketchikan I have a few unanswered questions. Is our City/KPU manager really worth more than 65% of the governors of the country who run their whole state? His wage is now over $170,000 a year. Check out the pay scale for the governors online. In my opinion, I don't think so. - More...
Tuesday AM - September 28, 2010

letterLibrary Bond Proposition By Heather Muench - Ketchikan's current library is cramped and doesn't meet ADA compliance. Despite this, it is heavily used by young and old, by rich and poor, including those without other literary resources. Monthly circulation is over 16,000. Many Ketchikan children developed a love of reading and learning from visits to the library. The community supports our library and its wonderful staff. - More...

letterSupport for Library Funding Vote By Heidi Ekstrand - Ketchikan voters voiced overwhelming support for a new library in the August special election by voting nearly 2-1 to allow the building to be built anywhere within the city limits. That vote cleared the way to purchase the recommended property on Copper Ridge at the top of the Third Avenue bypass. - More...

letterRE: Language Diversity= Divisiveness By Donald A. Moskowitz - In response to a recent response to my letter by Dr. Sarah Elaine Eaton I wish to clarify for her the thrust of my letter. When I refer to a potential problem of immigrants having diverse language skills I am referring to those immigrants who do not learn English and who persist in only communicating in their native languages, whether it be Spanish, French, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, German or any other non-English language. These people not only impair their ability to assimilate but they could also hinder our overall communication system in this country. I stand by my argument that if a large segment of our population cannot communicate in English, our country will be weaker for it. - More...

This was an industrial facility supplying metals and associated chemicals; will there be additional funding required to rehabilitate the soil and modify the structures to accommodate the... what?

letterJoe Miller By Paul Jarvi - How does a vote for Joe Miller help the citizens of Ketchikan Alaska? All I know about Mr. Miller is that he is a "Constitutional Conservative" whatever that is and that Sarah Palin endorsed him. Sarah is not a friend to Southeast Alaska. - More...
Friday AM - September 24, 2010

letterWriting-in Lisa Murkowski By Frances C. Natkong - I'm sorry for those of you who will vote for Joe Miller, you and I will have to live with your vote. He's trying to get rid of social security, unemployment, and federal funding for Alaska. He DOES NOT have my vote. - More...

letterVoters Should Be Closely Scrutinizing Senator Murkowski's Motives By Myla Poelstra - The recent shakeup in Alaska's political arena from the surprising results of our primary election are bringing some interesting pictures into focus and disturbing questions to mind. Senator Murkowski's obviously unexpected loss, and subsequent decision to pursue a write in campaign after promising to respect the will of the people of Alaska by showing her support for the Republican nominee, has caused many to question her judgment and integrity. - More...

I would not consider going "outside" if I can have the service performed here in my hometown. - More...
Friday AM - September 24, 2010

letter Fire Stations By Stephanie Sherva - It's been a long time coming, but the city is finally getting a new Downtown Fire Station. Too bad it doesn't fit the locale. Downtown has spent tons of tax dollars making itself look "old" and now they want a red and gray, modern, all angled building in the center of Downtown. Didn't any one consider the surrounding area and all the time and money spent to impress the Tourist with the "old fishing and logging town" feel? Where was the Historical Commission when all this was in the planning stages? They have no problem getting the rest of Downtown into the historical mode. As long as the inside of the building meets all the requirements of the Fire Department, why can't the outside have an "old Ketchikan" look and feel? - More...

letter Open Letter to Ketchikan Police: School Zones By Amber Anderson - I wanted to express my appreciation for your presence in the Schoenbar school zone this morning (09/20/21). It was nice to see a lot of cars tapping their breaks and stopping for kids in the crosswalks. I've lived on this bend for 3 years and have been frustrated with the lack of concern for children walking to school and bus stops. My children and I have often been nearly hit by people in a rush and/or on their cell phones. This is not something I thought I had to worry about when we bought our home here. I was naive in thinking it would be a safe walk since we live in a school zone. - More...

letterSupport Joe Miller By Liz Williams - I am unable to understand why it is wrong for Joe Miller to take out of state funds but okay for Sen. Lisa Murkowski to do so.  There is nothing illegal about the funding in either case.  While some of the funding for both Murkowski and Mr. Miller came from out of state, 100% of the votes came from Alaskans.  The majority of the voters in the Republican primary picked Joe Miller to represent them in the General election.  Republicans have a closed primary so that their members, not the members of the opposition, elect the representative who they believe will most closely represent their views in Congress.  - More...
