This year marks the 30th anniversary for The Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies based in Homer.  I want to thank the thousands of people across Alaska and the globe that have supported Coastal Studies over the past 3 decades.  2012 is shaping up to be a fantastic year of celebration with m...

I think I have heard enough of the insults flung at the hospital implying that it somehow is a money hungry savage, stealing our money or "gouging this community." It is not. I have had the unfortunate (unfortunate only in that sickness can never be classified as a good thing) privilege and honor of...

I am writing in response to your article, "Good at heart: Presenters talk heart health, disease prevention at seminar" (Clarion, Feb. 19) which refers to the impact preventative medicine can have in our lives.  Sleater and Rogers stories demonstrate the control we can have over our lives, despi...

On Feb. 15 while at KPC, I was most impressed by the "Health Fair" going on through our college. Score of individuals were assisting students and the public as part of this event. This is another example of the "student-centered" vision by the KPC Staff and Faculty. Residents should be most thankful...

I am a 30-plus year resident of the Kenai Peninsula. I have received excellent care and service from my local licensed physician and CPH whenever needed. This medical partnership ended when CPH denied me the ability to get routine procedures that only a hospital and their own staff can perform. Any ...

Big kudos to Dr. Matthew Dammeyer, who is CPGH's new Chief Operating Officer. I could not imagine a better person for that position. I do not know a more upstanding, professional, compassionate person. Not only will the hospital benefit from him, but this community will be a better place because of ...

Many of the residents of the Kenai Peninsula are unaware of the harmful effects Reed Canary Grass has on our salmon population. This invasive species grows in small salmon streams, like Beaver Creek. It thrives in waterlogged soil or any area that receives at least 24 inches of rainfall per year. Wh...

I still speak English, the national language of this country as far as I am concerned. I am still guaranteed my rights as stated in our Constitution. I am proud of my 25 years of military service defending those rights. And, I and every American should be proud of the millions of others who have don...

In the letters to the Editor, a Kasilof  lady wrote almost word for word, the rules of my mother's playbook. Now this was way back in the 1930s and 40s and I believe in  the three different country schools I attended the rules were always the same.  None of my brothers or sisters or m...
