Les Gara: Worked on civil prosecution on Exxon Valdez oil spill

My wife Kelly and I have had great opportunity in our 33 years in Fairbanks (1988-1989) and Anchorage. I've been fortunate to find good work, including as an Assistant Attorney General on Alaska's civil prosecution of Exxon after the disastrous Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Kelly has made her way as a loved hospital physical therapist. We've found good opportunities in this state. Those opportunities are disappearing.

Lisa Murkowski: Pay a fee if one's actions place other users in harm's way

Q. Should individuals pay fees to use public lands for recreation?

KNOWLES: Public lands should be accessible to all but it is appropriate to levy reasonable user fees to pay for upkeep, improvements and maintenance for certain high-use areas.

MURKOWSKI: Individuals should not have to pay a fee to enjoy public lands as long as their actions do not place other users in harm's way. Public lands are there for the public good and public enjoyment - not just for those who can afford to enjoy them.
