Kasilof

Dusty greetings from Kasilof.

Thanks to the crews working to remove the accumulation of road sand off the highways and byways. Many of us just shrug off the irritation and poor visibility of roiling plumes of particulates in the air but for other, it is a health risk. Even the back roads are dusty. With that in mind, motorists encountering pedestrians should consider the wake they make when passing and courteously reduce their speed.

Folks shopping in Kasilof might have noticed some changes inside and out at the Kasilof mercantile. The exterior of the 40-plus year old building has undergone a face lift and now sports a new, more easterly entrance.

Kasilof resident and proprietress, Mary Lambe, opened Kasilof's first cyber cafe. Inside, two public Internet access terminals await surfers and satellite television entertains Deb Hayes' diners. The videos are now tucked in back but up front is a newly elevated counter, all the better to see the mercantile crew, Jayneene Baldwin, Annette Campbell, Tony Rea and Nancy Russell.

The Kasilof public library wishes to thank the anonymous donor of many books and equine periodicals. The availability of the magazines made at least one Kasilof girl very happy. Open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:30 to 6 p.m. the library has free public Internet access, inter-library loans and thousands of books and other materials for loan. For library information, call me weekdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at 252-1120.

Best wishes to these Kasilof residents celebrating the day they were born: Jeremiah Hudson, Jim Culhane, Nancy Russell and Bob Lambe.

Happy anniversary wishes to John and Marge Torgerson.

Until next week, think sunny skies.
