Disappointed that Obama won
To the Editor: I’m very sad and disappointed Obama the “pied piper” did it again. He led all the sheep to slaughter. Do they know what we’re in for the next four years? I expect we will lose the Supreme Court when the justices retire. There goes the Second Amendment. The Middle East is a powder keg, we have morons in Washington, and Israel is as good as gone. Our good neighbor policy isn’t working. Russia is extra...

Guest Opinion: Composting is a good solution
Kodiak is changing the way it disposes of the nutrient rich organic materials that the city wastewater treatment facility produces. Known as biosolids, Kodiak produces about 60 cubic yards (five dump truck loads) on a weekly basis and has been disposing of them in the Borough landfill for more than 20 years. That is coming to an end in the middle of December as the landfill undergoes major modifications, leaving t...

Kodiak fortunate to have Threshold Services
To the Editor: I recently returned from a vacation during which I was reminded how much a part of daily life recycling is for most of the country. Flight attendants on the planes I was on separated in-flight trash into plastics, paper and cans for recycling. Aboard ship were containers for recyclables. From shopping centers to residential neighborhoods, recycling is a way of life. It is a normal part of responsibl...

Assembly should be involved Middle Bay composting project
To the Editor: On Thursday, Nov. 8 I listened to the city council meeting. Under citizens' comments, three people spoke against Pete Olsen's composting project that he wants to have in Middle Bay. The complaints and objections were well-founded. When Mr. Olsen spoke, he gave them no answers or responses. I learned that there is no written plan for the public to view. Right there, that puts up a red flag! There are...

Offended by Mr. Fox letter
To the Editor: After reading the latest “gloom and doom” letter written by Mr. Fox and published in the Daily Mirror on Thursday, Nov. 8, I am offended by his lack of trust, faith and belief in his fellow Americans and the democratic system. Americans have fought wars with other countries, lived through slavery, endured and suffered through economic depression and recessions, and triumphed over a multitude of civi...

Republican views are on their way out
To the Editor: It’s funny people would think I’m mean-spirited for speaking the truth. My whole life in this town I have put up with mean-spirited remarks from the other side. I’ve been told I’m going to hell for not believing the way you do. The N word is commonplace in this town, and everyone has been waiting for Obama to be shot by people like you, just like Kennedy was. This time, my very rights as a woman wer...

Paper supports diverse viewpoints
To the Editor: I read with interest and some disbelief Mr. Craig Olson’s letter expressing what is basically his unhappiness with the First Amendment. He was angry with this newspaper for publishing Heather Peterson’s view of the GOP’s campaign strategies. There hasn’t been a peep from Mr. Olson (unless I missed it) when Art Zimmer and his broad-minded letters are published. Nor Ron Fox, and his advocacy of string...

Guest Opinion: Bike path worth the money
After two work sessions this the city has balked at entering an agreement with Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities to design and construct the first phase of a multi-use path from downtown to Bell’s Flats. The project would connect Pier 2 to Deadman's curve, with subsequent phases extending to Bell's Flats. Such a path would make travel safer for pedestrians and cyclists, reduce our dependence ...

American people just destroyed our country
To the Editor: The worst thing that could happen, Obama was reelected. The American people just destroyed our country, our freedom, the Supreme Court, gun control and registration and confiscation, treaties with the United Nations and atomic weapons. We are doomed to tyranny and a dictatorship in this country, and when the money is all gone, there will be riots, burning cars, civil disobedience, redistribution of ...

Letters not supposed to be mean spirited
To the Editor: I was under the impression letters to the editor were not supposed to be mean spirited, vile and nasty, yet the Mirror has allowed that with the ongoing Heather Peterson rants. No matter what side of the aisle you are on, they are embarrassing. I say shame on the paper for printing them, and lady, seek counseling. Craig Olson
