Natural Gas service safety: I have thought of this many times before, but recently with two potentially life-threatening events happening on the Peninsula in a very short period of time, I wonder why a shut-off valve a safe distance from the structure being served is not required? This valve should ...

"To me this is a very clear cut case. We can either sit, wait, and hope, or we can be proactive and try to do something for our moose population." So said Ted Spraker of the Alaska Board of Game at the board meeting in Anchorage where they voted to start aerial killing of wolves in order to maybe in...

I sincerely regret not voting for Fred! Borough Mayor Navarre stated in the Peninsula Clarion last week against the proposed Kahtnu Ventures for a surgical center in Kenai. For one thing, our local borough government should not take a position for or against this venture, it is a conflict of interes...

I am a staunch supporter of HB 244, which was introduced in the Alaska House by Rep. Scott Kawasaki.

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!

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.
