Reader supports initiative process
In response to the "Voice of the Times" on Jan. 15, I cannot see how getting the people's voice out of our goverment would be a good thing. Perhaps Hitler or some other socialist/totalitarian type of ruler would go along with this type of opinion. But here in America the goverment is supposed to work for the people. If anything, we need more people voicing their opinions, more people voting, more people watching our goverment at all levels and more people getting involved to keep our politicians in line.

SoHi cagers grateful

Sailor grateful for support
My name is Robert Small. I am a member of the United States Navy. I would like to thank every one for your support. Without the hope and support of friends and family, it would make it hard to be gone for so long. It is a privilege no, it is an honor to defend our home and our nation. Once again, I thank you for your support and so do the members of all of the branches of are armed forces.

Conductor appreciates community involvement
I just want to express my profound thank you to the entire community of the Kenai Peninsula, the singers of the Homer High School Concert Choir and the Kenai Peninsula Community Chorus, and the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra, its Board of Directors, and the many volunteers who all worked so tirelessly to make our community production of the "Messiah" such a success. A special thank you needs to go out to four people who I did not get listed in the program, but who were particularly important in the success of the production. They are: Laura Norton, production manager; Maria Allison and JulieAnn Smith, accompanists; and Jean Brockel, assistant conductor. It was a most memorable weekend for me and would not have been so without the tremendous effort put forth by so many.

Restless bears, hungry moose
Snow blankets the ground, but that doesn't necessarily mean Yogi's asleep. Reports of a bear nosing around Kalifornsky Beach Road Wednesday should warn Kenai Peninsula residents that even though most bruins snooze their way through the winter, it's not unheard of to find one wide awake and hungry.

Foster parenting poses many tough questions
Does your home have a working carbon monoxide detector? If children are allowed to play in the basement, is there a direct escape to the outside?

Kenai discusses dipnet parking fees

Dangerous mail trail holds significant past
The unsung heroes of the early years must surely have been the mail carriers who braved the elements to maintain that thin thread of contact with the outside world.

Fresh snow keeps groomers busy
There's lots of white covering the ground finally, but fluffy snow consistency combined with warm air temperatures are making challenging conditions for groomers attempting to establish a good trail base.
