Sitka Nature: Heavy Clouds and Showers

Last night I woke up a couple of different times to the sound of heavy rain showers. I think they were mostly short-lived, but they were quite loud. I spent most of the day inside getting some work…

By Cameron Mackintosh: Assembly holds public testimony for proposed resolutions against SB91
House minority leader Rep. Charisse Millett (R-Anchorage) was one of three state legislators to attend Saturday’s public hearing. She was also one of the lawmakers who voted against SB91 last year.

“We put the cart before the horse with SB91,” Millett told Channel 2. “We should have front-end loaded rehabilitation and mental illness safety nets. We should have had those in place before we did anything about decriminalizing any crimes or lessening penalties for criminals because if you don’t have the safety net, how are you going to expect change?”

The Assembly is scheduled to vote on the two resolutions at its regular Tuesday meeting.


By Patrick Moussignac: Anchorage Assembly hears out more SB 91 concerns
Downtown Anchorage resident Cesar Martison used his time at the podium to decry SB 91’s effects on the community.

“We have got to protect victims,” Martison said. “We have got to protect public safety and Senate Bill 91 has created an environment where crime is thriving, and it is putting people’s lives and people’s property in jeopardy.”

SB 91 might see a few changes in the upcoming weeks, as the Legislature convenes to discuss the bill in its fourth special session this year. State representatives Charisse Millett and Geran Tarr also attended Saturday’s work session to hear the testimony.

The new Assembly resolutions will be introduced at the next Assembly meeting scheduled for Tuesday. The public will get another chance to speak on them on Oct. 24.

Sitka Nature: Fall Weather

It wasn’t full on fall storm, but at various points during the day, the rain fell hard and it was quite blustery. Temperatures are still holding in the 50s, but I suspect that will end soon. …
