'Fair, with some bright spots'
Salmon fishing on the Kenai Peninsula has been slow to fair this week, but there are a few bright spots for those with patience and perseverance.

Misadventure a part of every good adventure
As we ready ourselves for another fishing season we often reflect on past adventures to get our juices flowing.

Climbers should carry locators
The $10,000 deposit required to climb Mount McKinley is an insult to taxpayers. Each year the search and rescue budget gets busted by one long or intensive search. So the public picks up the rest of the cost one way or another.

Wrong time to change format for government
As a naturalized citizen of this great country and a very proud resident of Soldotna, I feel the urge to write this letter to the editor regarding the issue of replacing an elected borough mayor with a strong manager type of municipal government.

Kenai Elks lodge gets a makeover
Driving around Kenai it is quite common to see a moose, while seeing a bear is a little more rare, but motorists driving down Barnacle Way have been taking in an even more unusual spectacle: an 8-foot tall, 700-pound bull elk.

Budget passes: Assembly amends mayor's proposal
Despite Borough Mayor Dave Carey's budget proposals to reduce funding for all non-departmental agencies, the Assembly voted Tuesday to fund those groups to nearly the full amounts requested.

Ready to respond: Most calls involve medical treatment
Central Emergency Services is just a fire department, right?

Redoubt stays at orange
As of Wednesday evening, Mount Redoubt remains at aviation color code orange and on "watch" status, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

Everybody knows your name
I was sitting on the deck at the pro shop on a sunny afternoon with a friend realizing that the golf course is not just a place where people go to play golf, but it is a part of the community. One of our up-and-coming girl junior golfers, Ava Gabler, showed up with her friend to hit balls and practice. I had not seen Ava since this past spring and it gave me an opportunity to visit and find out what she was going to be doing over the summer months, besides golfing, of course.
