The proposal to build a surgery center in Kenai has brought to mind several thoughts. First, am I the only one that thinks it's a little strange that the self-appointed CPGH, Inc. board would have one of its members (now former) to vote in the Aug. 2011 meeting and then have his name attached to a C...

On behalf of library patrons and staff, I'd like to thank the Soldotna Kaladi Brothers Coffee shops and their staffs, who donated $1,120.92 to the Friends of the Library.

As a former CEO of Central Peninsula Hospital (2002-2006), I would like comment on the proposed for-profit ambulatory surgery center (ASC) in Kenai. I strongly believe in competition and, generally, competition is good for the health care industry and the patients served. However, I think it is crit...

I had the pleasure of attending a meeting sponsored by the Alaska Stand Alone Gas Pipeline group. Not many people attended but  was very informative. One question in my mind is why has it taken 30-plus years to get natural gas to Fairbanks and south where it is so vital. Of the hundred of thous...

Yes, I think free enterprise is usually a good thing. However, the new surgical facility will be a ‘for-profit’ facility. The hospital is a ‘non-profit’ facility. I have observed here that profits are reinvested into the hospital to add services, improve services, supply services. In a hospi...

What has happened to free enterprise? Kahtnu Ventures wants to build an 8,300 square foot Ambulatory Surgery Center here in Kenai. CPGH is opposing this stating it stands to loose $20 million a year if this center is allowed to be built. Sorry about your luck. I'm pretty sure AIH or Spenard Lumber d...

I am surprised to see that the list of associates provided with the No Pebble logo consist of for profit companies that are solely interested in maintaining their profit margin, limited to their out of the state customers coming here to gather the fish and then depart.    Sport fishin...
