I would like to thank the CPH/Soldotna Borough Assembly for the 3 minutes allotted to me to speak of my support for the Kahtnu Ventures project. Although it fell on deaf ears! As I listened to the radio on the way to the assembly meeting Mayor Navarre said that he expected a lot of public comment bu...

Is snow removal necessary ? After the last snow dump, just out of curiousity, I drove around my neighborhood to see how many of my neighbors make the time to do snow removal at their property. Much to my surprise, I found it was about half and half -- half make the time for snow removal half do not ...

The Parnell administration is deliberate and consistent in its betrayal of the public trust.  Across state government in nearly every department, cronyism and special interest have taken the place of science-based management and working for the good of the public. Parnell himself hammers a cons...

Citizens of the Kenai Peninsula Borough recently made it clear that they did not want our Central Peninsula Hospital to be sold or join in a joint venture.

Dear Alaskans, Alaska is fortunate to have one of the highest rates of volunteerism in the nation. In fact, 34 percent of our residents volunteer a total of 28 million hours annually.

I know several people on the Peninsula who fully understand what "inflation" really is. If you were born in the 1920s or 30s, you were born in "zero" inflation. Nobody had any money; even the rich had very little. Through the 40s I worked mostly for $1.00 per hour, and after getting out of the Navy ...

Mayor Mike Navarre standing against the Kahtnu surgery center is outrageous. The mayor is supposed to represent the wishes of the people, even though not all the people have been allowed to all speak their minds in this matter. It has long been the feeling among locals that if you get sick go to the...

A commonly held misconception is that members of the CPGH, Inc. Board of Directors derive a fiscal benefit from their service to the hospital. Another is that being a "self-appointed" board means that new board members are pre-selected from a group of friends, cronies or business partners. Both are ...
