Thanks for gifts to women facing cancer
On behalf of the Women's Cancer Support Group, we would like to thank the women of Soldotna Bible Chapel for their amazing generosity. The "shower" you gave us at your women's luncheon on April 30 supplied us with many wonderful items for our gift bags.

Bike friendly is good business
This message to all the Soldotna and Kenai businesses. I live in town and love riding my bike in the summer (when we have one). With the price of gas going up everyday, I will be riding even more this year. I love riding around town to do my errands (I have a basket on the front) like to the grocery store, post office, fabric store, etc. However, most business have no place to lock up a bike. Some, however, have bike racks, like Beemun's, Safeway, Freddies and the library. But I would love it if more merchants would get on the band wagon. It doesn't have to be a large area, just someplace out front that's bolted down and thin enough for a cable lock to go around. I know I'll be more apt to visit your place of business if I know my bike is safe. Thanks!

Gov. Sean Parnell's proposal for new taxes on the oil industry is not good legislation. Neither he nor his administration did a good job of selling this to the public.
