Pet photos wanted

The Peninsula Clarion is looking for pet photos from Kenai Peninsula residents to run on its Sunday Pets page. Pet photos either can be color or black and white and should be no smaller than 3-by-5 inches. They may include people. Limit one photo per household.

They can be dropped off at the Kenai office on Trading Bay or mailed to the Clarion at P.O. Box 3009, Kenai, 99611. A brief explanation of the photo, the pet's and owner's names, owner's address and phone number must be included. E-mailed photos will not be accepted. Only photos with an address written on the back will be returned. For more information, call Jenny Neyman at 283-7551.

Snow removal reminder

Enstar Natural Gas Company reminds customers to avoid piling snow and ice on gas meters when clearing sidewalks and driveways. Heavy buildups of snow and ice on meters and pipes can cause stress that may lead to gas leaks. Additionally, built-up snow and ice can hinder quick access to a shut-off valve in an emergency.

Customers also are asked to clear icicles and other large amounts of ice from their roofs and around gas meters as a safety precaution. Falling ice, like heavy ice buildups on meters and pipes, can cause stress that may lead to leaks. For more information, call Jane Lee at (907) 334-7792.

Merrill Sikorski, organizer of Caring for the Kenai, and 2004 contest winner Marit Hartvigson will discuss the program at the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce at noon today at the Riverside House. For more information, call Shanon Hamrick at 262-9814.
