Our Mission

At Alaska Watchman we definitely have certain beliefs and concerns, which guide what we find newsworthy and how we go about reporting. In particular, we believe that America’s historic Judeo-Christian heritage is a treasure to be preserved and handed down to future generations. We hold that the natural law and long-standing universal forms of morality should guide our private and public lives.

From this flows our belief that people have a right to practice their faith. This means freedom to worship but also freedom to put faith into action when raising and educating children, serving the poor, running businesses and engaging the pressing issues of our time. Faith is not merely a private affair. To restrict it as such violates a fundamental right to live in accord with our deepest convictions.

In reality, however, writers, editors and publishers are just people, which means they have special concerns, interests, passions and blinders. They all come with a history and set of beliefs that guide and shape...

About UsOpinionWelcome to the Alaska Watchman

This project is born of many prayers, careful reflection and late-night discussions. It’s now time to begin in earnest. As most of you know, we live in a world of rapid political and cultural unrest. Alaska is no exception. Even the most fundamental beliefs and core convictions that have guided our society are unraveling. Navigating these times requires a clear vision of the good for which we strive and an understanding of the challenges ahead....

CultureFreedomOpinionIt’s time to reclaim some of our pre-Y2K life

Joel Davidson 12 months ago
I came across a blank postcard the other day, turned it over a few times, and resolved to do something for the first time in many years. It’s no big deal. I used to send these to friends and relatives regularly. It seems like just yesterday. Then again, much of my pre-Y2K life has given way to the realities of the modern world. I used to write two-page letters (in cursive) to my brothers and...
