After 40-plus years living in the Central Kenai Peninsula area I finally spend approximately three days under the care and supervision of the staff of Central Peninsula Hospital. What an experience. One thing that struck me was the lack of that ol’ hospital smell, you know that antiseptic odor or ...

Did I just hear what I heard? I just finished listening to the Board of Fish meeting by live streaming on my computer.They voted 5 to 2 in favor of taking no action on the 6 petitions in front of them.

I wonder if anyone has really considered all aspects of the state building their own large diameter pipeline from the North Slope to tidewater?   Costs of the project would probably run in the billions and the question of where the funds would be appropriated from, can they be recovered over a ...

When Alaska's economy collapsed in 1986, there wasn't a single spec home built in Anchorage for six years. Apartments and condos didn't resume in quantity for 12.

Last week my wife and I were out dipnetting and had trouble with the fuel filter. A Kenai River guide and his wife took time out to tow us to the dock. I just wanted to say thanks for the help....

The Kenai Peninsula, like all of Alaska, is facing some tough choices in this election cycle. I would not presume to advise you on how to vote, but I can say you have sent the legislature an extraordinary man in Tom Wagoner. I did not know him before he showed up in Juneau.
