    FAIRBANKS — Former Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Jim Whitaker has been picked by Gov.-elect Bill Walker as his chief of staff, according to a news release sent out by Walker’s campaign Wednesday night. The former mayor’s selection is one of the first official positions to be announced as the independent candidate begins the transition to the governor’s office after Republican Gov. Sean Parnell conceded defeat during the weekend.

    I don't do vanities, but I guess I do now. My wife and I were talking last night, I was complaining and she said no nation that has embraced homosexuality has stood long. This got me to thinking and meditating on His word. Over the years, we all must admit, socialism of all stripes has taken hold of our Country. Things are getting worse. Why? We have taken God out of our daily lives. This homosexual in the military is simply one of the last strikes against God and He is removing His favor from us. All the natural disasters,...

    Lead story on NBC this evening: Poor Poor Rutgers Womens Basketball team. It was sickening to see these women whining about how their chance to shine was taken away by mean old Imus. Culture of a victim in a nutshell. Pathetic. Race Pimp the revrun Al got a little more face time as well. I know Imus is a first class lefty turd, I am not defending him at all, I think his butt should be fired. Now before I get a bunch of crap for watching NBC, I do not have cable or satellite. I just caught the story...

    This is something I received and think it worth passing on. Sent: Saturday, January 22, 2005 6:18 AM Subject: Report from USS Abraham Lincoln on station off Banda Aceh By Ed Stanton It has been three weeks since my ship, the USS Abraham Lincoln, arrived off the Sumatran coast to aid the hundreds of thousands of victims of the Dec. 26 tsunami that ravaged their coastline. I'd like to say that this has been a rewarding experience for us, but it has not: Instead, it has been a frustrating and needlessly dangerous exercise made even more difficult by the Indonesian...
  • Would you want your teenage daughter to read this?

    It would be unfair to say the editors of teenage girls' magazines have a one-track mind; after all, they also like J Lo, shift dresses from Top Shop, and perfect nails. But they do seem particularly keen on sex. "Your guide to after-school snogs," screams the cover of this month's Sugar. "Sex survey results: the shocking truth you couldn't tell your parents," yells J-17. "You and guys and sex," shrieks Cosmo Girl!. Yesterday, one parent, a father of three teenage children, hit back. And he is not just any parent. Bob Geldof, the rock star and charity hero, compared the...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) -- The AFL-CIO has again postponed a meeting to consider endorsing a presidential candidate, a blow to Democratic hopeful Dick Gephardt who is counting on strong union support to boost his sagging campaign.</p> <p>AFL-CIO President John Sweeney had said he would hold a mid-October meeting to consider Gephardt, but only if there were sufficient support from about two-thirds of the federation's 13 million members. The former House minority leader, with the strongest support among labor groups, was seen as the most likely candidate for a rare endorsement in the primary race.</p>

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nation's schools are telling an unbalanced story of their own country, offering students plenty about America's failings but not enough about its values and freedoms, says a report drawing support across the ideological spectrum.</p> <p>Without a change of approach, schools will continue to turn out large numbers of students who are disengaged in society and unappreciative of democracy, the report contends.</p>
