As the election campaign heats up, we have seen a reincarnation of the group Backbone, which has interjected itself not only in the oil-tax debate but the elections. Oil prices have subsided – and this has serious implications for the state, especially the state budget. The Alcohol Beverage Control Board has switched locations. Formerly under law enforcement, it is now under commerce. Former Republican Senate nominee Joe Miller has become an on-line publisher. A study shows Fairbanks is paying double the national average for its utility bills. There’s a salmon shortage in the Bush, especially on the major rivers. Do we know why?
