Soldotna

Posted: Tuesday, May 03, 2005

Hi.

The new bridge and road construction seem to take on a totally different look each day, especially when all the trees came down. Thursday afternoon about 4 traffic was backed up beyond the troopers on Kalifornsky Beach Road and then an accident had one lane of the Sterling Highway blocked off in front of Soldotna Hardware and Fishing (Trustworthy.)

Summer may not be here yet but it is imperative that we pay close attention when driving through the construction zone. Remember, the speed limit is enforced for the safety of all.

For those of you who may not have heard, Audrey Porter is very ill and hospitalized as this is written. Your thoughts or prayers for her speedy and complete recovery would be appreciated.

People interested in peace and justice are invited to bring their concerns and ideas to an organizational meeting at River City Books on May 10 at 7 p.m. Let's get together and make our world a better place. For more information, call Mary Jo at 262-5447.

Kenai Peninsula College will hold its graduation today at 7 p.m. at the Renee C. Henderson Auditorium at Kenai Central High School.

It must be spring — the banners are up along the highways and the swallows have returned.

I wanted to give you a little warning, since you may need to dig out or sew a costume, that Peninsula Take A Break's luncheon on May 11 will have a Fabulous Fifties Fashions theme. Hula hoops, bubble gum blowing and trivia contests are planned. Also, you may win a prize for the best '50s costume. Make reservations with Carolyn at 262-4214 or Linda at 262-4996 by Wednesday.

Kudos for the great roadside cleanup job done by members of Kenai Peninsula Outdoor Club. They clean a mile of Kalifornsky Beach Road to the south side of the Warren Ames bridge throughout the year.

More kudos to Kenai Peninsula College art students who I think did a great job painting and installing a community service art project mural on the road side of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank building.

Spenard Builders Supply quote is: "Clouds in our lives are sent many times to bring showers of blessings." Before too long we won't have to strain our eyes to read the marquee as the new road will be closer to the store.

This is a change you can't see from the road. Peninsula Steak House has been closed for the last three months for remodeling. It has reopened and had its grand opening Monday. It has a totally new decor inside and I think it is really beautiful.

A very special happy 30th wedding anniversary wish to Willy and Olga Spiroski, who are the owners of the Peninsula Steak House.
