I’m a property owner on the lower Kenai River and have seen the decline in the amount of King salmon over the past 20 years. I have done bank restoration per the Kenai River Center requirements to help give salmon fry a safe haven from the predators when they are at the fry stage. I hope to enjoy ...

We recently attended our grand daughter’s band/choir concert at Soldotna Elementary. The kids did a great job in their performance. The problem is with the parents. There was a group of little girls that were allowed to run around during the performance, playing, running back and forth between the...

I moved to Alaska in May 1981 and I went fishing on the Kenai/Russian River several times that first summer. Fishing for reds has always been a great way to share the outdoors with friends.
