Thank you for visiting DONNLISTON.CO!


I’m an independent journalist who has lived in Alaska since 1962, and Eagle River since 2010. I was a reporter for the Anchorage Daily News during pipeline construction, and a certified teacher who taught Adult Basic Education.

I’ve been a member of three State Education Commissions, and was selected as a 2013 BP Teacher of Excellence for my work with Nine Star teaching adult basic education classes in a basement classroom at the Mountain View Boys and Girls Club, and the Mat-Su Job Center.

There was a time when Anchorage was a two-newspaper town; we had three television stations delivering supplemental news in black and white, with color highlights. As a kid carrying the lightweight Anchorage Daily News along the length of 5th Avenue from Alaska Sales & Service to Airport Heights Road, I had it easier than the Anchorage Times carriers with all that paper’s advertising bulk.

Today, I’m a retiree, focused on giving back to Alaska through independent journalism. My objective is to advocate for the interests of the Alaskan people. I’m Alaska’s advocate writer and I thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read my stories!

I believe Alaska is a beautiful and vast state with great potential and I want to share our story, Alaska’s story, with the world! To follow my journey, simply subscribe! If you can afford to, during these interesting times, please support my journalism through a financial contribution.

Will you join me as I write about Alaska?
