Ballot Measure 1 – Oil Tax Referendum

Last year the Legislature narrowly passed Senate Bill 21, which offers tax cuts to encourage more drilling in the wake of declining oil production statewide. Today, Alaska voters have the opportunity to repeal the cuts laid out under SB 21. Those voting “yes” on Ballot Measure 1 are voting to repeal the cuts. Those voting “no” are electing to leave the tax reform as it stands under Senate Bill 21.

Current poll numbers are being pulled from the Alaska Division of Elections webpage.

Matanuska outdoor gems

Matanuska outdoor gems

You can’t always assume the places you love to recreate will still be accessible for the next generation, especially on the edges of urban Alaska where development happens rapidly. The Matanuska Valley contains some of our favorite places. We’ll discuss the work being done to conserve it by a private non-profit organization, and about fun spots like Bodenburg Butte, the Palmer Hay Flats, and the many other hiking, biking, hunting and fishing areas to enjoy.

On the first day of school, hear from Alaska’s top educational leaders, and ask your questions.

Peak Water

Peak Water

The severe conditions in Alaska prompt a lot of ingenuity, and that’s good because we have plenty of challenges – for instance food security and sanitation. But can Alaskan ingenuity deal with both at the same time? That’s the discussion we’ll have with waste-water gardener Mark Nelson, on the next Talk of Alaska.

Running and Your Health

Running and Your Health

Running has beneficial effects on lipoproteins levels, improves blood pressure and diabetes control and may even prevent type 2 diabetes. It clearly helps increase bone density, may decrease the risk of dementia and/or cognitive decline, reduces stress, anxiety, and depression, and helps prevent and treat obesity. It has some risks but doesn’t cost much. So why don’t more people run? Learn more about the effect running has on your health with Line One host Dr. Thad Woodard and guests.
