I support Bill Johnson for State House in District 9. George Rauscher is our current Representative in the House. I believe George is a good man. He’s a hard working family man and has done some great things for his community of Sutton.    

I often ride my bike in to town from Big Dipper Road. I try to ride to the right of the fog line as much as possible, going west in to town has become increasingly difficult to ride to the right of the line. From the bridge on Nistler Road to the ice rink, four wheelers have broken the pavem…

Hearts were warmed by the aroma of soup (20 varieties total) and bread, along with the company of good friends - Thanks to all of you who attend this annual event, we are always astounded by the generosity of this community in supporting this Alaska treasure – the Sullivan Roadhouse Museum, …

Every spring, we have an lnteragency Dispatch Workshop that involves DNR Division of Forestry, the BLM (Alaska Fire Service), and the U.S. Forest Service. During this workshop, we have a silent auction for a very wide variety of handmade, Alaskan made, and donated items from which 100 percen…

There has been discussion concerning Representative Rauscher’s support for the legislative bill SB-45 that passed the house and senate and was signed by the governor. You may hear some of his primary opponents attack Rauscher's support of this bill and how they perceive it as government intr…

Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2018 Deltana Fair Music Festival another success. The professional sound guys (A Nuther Sound Idea) were super great to work with – thanks Tom Torvie, Michael Faubion, John Will, Meg Anderson, and Paul Bourassa! These folks put in some long hours making…

There are no words to accurately express the loss of Courtney Yates; the loss of a sister, a daughter, a mother, a fiancé, a friend, a classmate, a neighbor, and a coworker. But it is a truly beautiful thing to be a part of a family and community that expands the confines of a geographic location. 

This beloved community, the people we call family and friends, co-workers and neighbors, have reached out to us so tenderly and with such depth of love that words cannot express our gratitude. But from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you! You loved Devin and you have blessed us during thi…

Jim Colver is just posing as a Republican. All the real evidence shows he remains a Democrat. He even said so to the past Republican finance chair, Mr. Fred Agree. Here is what Colver said, and I paraphrase, “I am a Democrat, but in order to win, I have to run as a Republican”. My, My.

There was recently a letter sent to the Delta Wind which attempted to portray the District 9 Republican party endorsement vote of George Rauscher as some kind of effort by the current district chair (Carol Carmen) and Rep. Rauscher to steal the upcoming primary election. This is far from the truth.

Secret votes by representative leaders should raise questions from constituents. It looks to me like House District 9 Republican Committee Chair Carol Carmen is trying to pick the Republican candidate for House District 9 without letting the voters have our say. It also looks to me like she …

Last Saturday some friends were coming from Fairbanks and needed instructions to getting to my place. Before, I would tell to come down the Jack Warren Road three miles on the left side of the road look for three Fairbanks Daily News Miner paper boxes. Turn on that driveway – that is history…

I want to thank my supporters and everyone who helped on my recent run for the legislature. Connecting with Alaskans throughout the vast District 9 was the high point of the campaign.

I’d like to thank all the volunteers and participants that helped make the Pedal, Plod, Paddle 60+ triathlon a success this year.

The Delta Junction Lions Club would like to thank the community for coming to the Lions Club annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 1. Without sponsorship and participation, these events wouldn’t be as successful as they are, so thank you Delta!

To everyone in the Delta community who supported us following the death of our father, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the support, comfort, and offers of kindness. Thank you for the lasting memory of a wonderful community coming together in a seamless show of support a…

I am so sad. My son has autism. He went to homecoming dance last year alone. He came home devastated. All the girls he asked to dance said no. He wants to go to the prom, but girls his age all say no. A work friend said she would go.  

Since you only allow people who have the failing Facebook to post comments, I thought it prudent for me to share my disgust with and about you for the sloppy journalism and left-wing agenda pushing article about the missile base.

We want to say, “thank you,” to the folks who enabled our 50th Anniversary celebration. It was a golden day we will remember for the next 50 years! The Woodshedders gave us (and everyone there) the gift of beautiful music and the opportunity to dance again. We love you and want everyone to k…

There are two items that cannot be found in Alaska. First item: rutabagas or Canadian turnips. They do have very small ones, which are no good. Rutabagas need to be four to six inches in diameter. In Whitehorse Y.T. Canada, they have large ones, and the sign says “Product of the U.S.A.” We d…
