Homer plans winter carnival events

Activities and events are being solicited for the official Homer Winter Carnival events calendar. This year's carnival theme is freedom. The chamber of commerce encourages organizations and businesses to sign up to be a part of the festivities. To be listed on the events calendar, fax (907) 235-8766 or call Amanda Hargett at (907) 235-7740 with a brief description of the event, date, time and contact information. The deadline to be in the calendar is Feb. 3.

The Winter Carnival Parade, sponsored by AT&T Alascom, will be at noon Feb. 15. It will start at Homer High School and proceed down Pioneer Avenue. Four cash prizes will be awarded, including: $500 for best nonprofit, not including political or religious groups; $200 for the open category; $100 for first place in the judges' choice category; and $50 for second place in the judges' choice category. Parade entry forms are available at the chamber, and there is no deadline to register for the parade.

2003 Clean Boating Tide Books available

Cook Inlet Keepers' Clean Boating Tide Books are available for 2003. The tide books, which include the regular tide table information, also include 16 pages of clean boating information, such as ways to reduce or eliminate boat pollution from sewage, fuel, antifreeze and batteries.

The practical tips for recreational and commercial boaters can help reduce water quality impacts from everyday boating activities.

Tide books are available at Cook Inlet Keepers' office at 3734 Ben Walters Land and at the Petro Marine fuel dock in the Homer harbor or from any of the sponsors. For more information, call Cook Inlet Keepers at (907) 235-4068.
