The Haines Alaska News

The Haines Alaska News is a grassroots newspaper project sponsored by the Alaska Alliance for Commerce.  We are dedicated to keeping the public informed about news that affects quality of life in Haines, especially as it relates to keeping a sound economy while supporting good stewardship of our natural resources.

We aim to be the timely source of news and information of use to Haines residents, and the go-to source for folks who want to know more about local issues such as energy, local economy, and local business.
