Hi, neighbors.

As I watched the inauguration of President Bush, I was reminded anew of my responsibility toward him. Scripture exhorts "that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be madefor all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior" I Timothy 2:1,2.

Our lieutenant governor, Loren Leman, and his wife Caroline, had the privilege of attending the inauguration. "I am thankful for our President and grateful for the vision of freedom, service, accountability and commitment to timeless truth he shared today," he wrote in his weekly e-mail message.

He also said that this opportunity of a lifetime was well worth the four-hour wait in the cold—even cold for Alaskans!

A group of Ninilchik students are participating in the Close Up program which gives them an opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C., to personally see our government functioning.

They appreciate those who have participated in the fund-raising for their trip.

The community is invited to attend the Ninilchik School Science Fair on Wednesday from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Here is an opportunity to encourage our young scientists by attending. It's also an opportunity to learn something!

Interior Distance Education of Alaska students participated in the Scripps Anchorage Daily News Spelling Bee on Jan. 10.
