Guest Opinion: Gov. takes heat for PFD cut
Legislators, please join fellow Alaskans on the rope As governor, I enjoy shaking a lot of hands. But one handshake in particular stuck with me. At the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport last winter, as passengers streamed off the flight from Fairbanks, one man turned around and walked toward me. “I want to shake your hand,” he said. “When there’s a fire, most people run from it.

The United Kingdom’s recent exit from the European Union, dubbed “Brexit,” has turned seafood trading on its head. For 43 years the UK has been a major part of the 28-country EU, and what the pullout means for longstanding business arrangements is anyone’s guess.
