Summertime means lots of outdoor time and on occasion we get stung by one of our resident wasps. Never a fun time it is best to learn about Stinging Insects from the free Cooperative Extension publication with the same title.
What's happening at the Kenai Senior Center for the month of September 2014 (all activities are held at the Kenai Senior Center unless otherwise stated):
■ Open weekdays through September 18 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
As of September 1, the weekend Mass Schedule will change for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 222 West Redoubt Avenue, Soldotna. On Saturday, Reconciliation will be available from 4:15-4:45 p.m.; and Vigil Mass at 5 p.m.
One day in July became increasingly challenging. First, the water pump in the well was producing only a trickle. Then the fuse on the nearby transformer pole blew, cutting off power to our house.
No water, no power.
■ The Kenai and Soldotna Chambers of Commerce will host a joint luncheon at noon on Sept. 3 at the Kenai Visitors Center. A forum with candidates for Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor is planned. RSVP to 262-9814 or 283-1991.
