Thank you, City of Kenai, for finally installing filters on the city water system that provides water to residents. It may not seem like such a big deal to some, but after 30+ years, I have clear ice cubes and drinking and cooking water, a bath tub of clear water (instead of looking like an army wit...

We Alaskans are so fortunate and should feel grateful that our fearless U.S. Rep. Don Young adeptly secured $30 million annual funding for our Alaska Railroad for capital projects and to preserve passenger service. I was utterly insulted and felt snubbed to read that some Outsiders and naysayers cal...

On Saturday, July 28, at the Ted Stevens Day and Soldotna Progress Days, I had the pleasure of giving 250 fishing rods and reels to Soldotna and Kenai area boys and girls. This is the tenth year for the “Hooked on Fishing Program.” This program is sponsored by Kenai River Sportfishing Associatio...

 There is absolutely no valid reason to ban bait and hooks for silver, humpback and sockeye salmon fishing in the lower Kenai River between Aug. 2 and 14 this year. In the last thirty years I have “accidentally hooked and released” about 10 kings while fishing other salmon during this time ...

These days it is rare to have a volunteer willingly accept a difficult job. Mike and Jimmy Painter volunteered to put a new metal roof on the Ninilchik Community Library’s 50-year-old auxiliary building which now houses the Peddler Gift shop. We are very grateful for their excellent and timely wor...

Shhh ... Don’t tell anybody, but guess which local youth sport/activity offers an opportunity to learn a great lifetime family sport, participate competitively and also provide the ability to build an individual scholarship fund along the way? If you guessed youth bowling then you are correct.&nbs...

A few years ago, I had the chance to meet Paul Seaton and discuss some issues I was concerned about, for which he expressed strong support. Since then, I have been disappointed with his record.  He tends to get very low ratings from business advocacy groups. He gets high ratings from education ...

As sport anglers wind down with another abundant sockeye run and move towards pesky pinks and super silvers, let’s not forget our wild king salmon. For goodness sake, be a good sport and stay off the beds, allowing our big fish to spawn without harassment. Educate next year’s anglers on taking o...

I am not a Kenai River guide, nor am I a commercial fisherman. Just someone who enjoys fishing. Shame on ADF&G for the decision they made about shutting down fishing for the setnetters. This is devastating for these families, which at least 86 percent of the setnetters live and work here year-ro...

The Soldotna Public Library and the Friends of the Joyce K. Carver Memorial Library would like to thank the businesses and volunteers who helped with our annual Progress Days used book sale and support of the library’s summer reading program. Thank you to Steve Stenga and the Peninsula Center Mall...
