…Help for this great Alaskan

Do you know this man? His name is John Sturgeon and he did something in 2007 that the National Park
Service said he couldn’t do. Hunt for a moose to feed his family on the Nation River with his hovercraft. The problem is the NPS does not have jurisdiction there according to the State of Alaska and ANILCA. All state waters are under the jurisdiction of the Sate, not the Feds. Johns legal bills have totaled almost 800,000 just to date.This is the biggest case of Federal Overreach in Alaska in 35 years. And John really needs your help.We are having the GREAT ALASKAN GARAGE SALE Saturday, Aug 27th at Compeau’s on Boat Street, with all kinds of outdoor items being donated. Hunting equipment, boats, electronics, snowmachines, ATV’s, guns, cars, trucks, generators, canoes, and more.

You can help two ways:

  1. Consider donating an outdoor item that you no longer use much (suggested $300 min) and get a tax deductible donation for the market value of it. (Can be picked up or brought to Compeau’s in Fairbanks)
  2. Come by Compeau’s (4122 Boat St) on Saturday (Aug 27th ) from 11am to 4pm and score a great deal on something you might be able to use outdoors.

What Stop the Overreach is about

Webster’s dictionary defines OVERREACH as: to try to do something that is beyond your ability to do.

When it comes to Alaska, there might as well be a photo of Barak Obama and Sally Jewell included within that section of the dictionary. Alaska is under attack by a runaway federal overreach train and Obama and his hard core environmental supporters are at the controls.

In late January, President Barack Obama said that he planned to ask Congress to declare much of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as wilderness, including its 1.5-million-acre coastal plain, an area on Alaska’s North Slope suspected to contain vast reserves of oil and gas.

Since 1980, when the Arctic refuge was expanded from 9 million acres to 19 million acres by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, there’s been a stalemate over the coastal plain. The 1980 law left the plain in limbo, with congressional action required to open it to development or seal it permanently. [Read More]

Donate to the Sturgeon Legal Fight

AOC is asking for your help in paying John Sturgeon's legal fees as he elevates his access case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Sturgeon, an Alaskan citizen, has achieved a feat that the state of Alaska and Alaska’s Congressional Delegation has been unable to correct for the last 20 years. Mr. Sturgeon was unwilling to be forced off state owned waters by National Park Service (NPS) Rangers just because of a 1996 federal rulemaking by the Department of the Interior. Mr. Sturgeon has been battling "up the chain" of federal courts since 2011 trying to stop NPS from forcing him off state managed waters. That has cost him a lot of attorney fees.
