Rep. Spohnholz’s Newsletter: Things to Celebrate

February is Black History Month, a time when we celebrate the rich history of African Americans in our nation and in our state. I would like to highlight a strong Alaskan African American who was so far ahead of her time in her accomplishments, former State Senator Bettye Davis. I first met SenatorDavis when I was five years old; she worked with my mother at the Division of Family and Youth Services serving foster children.

NEWS: Rep. Gara Wants Fairness for Kenai River Dipnetters

Juneau – For the past three years, Alaskans who rely on dipnetting sockeye salmon from the Kenai River have been blocked from fishing after July 31st, which denies them a fair chance at catching their limit of fish. The sockeye salmon runs have been arriving later in the season, which results in a substantial part of the Kenai River run entering the river after the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has closed the dipnet fishery. At the same time, commercial fishermen have been allowed to take advantage of continued strong returns well into August.
