Good morning.

A thought to get you through the rest of the year: "A friend indeed ... We discover in each other and ourselves worlds, galaxies, a universe." — Anna Rivers Siddons

The Cook Inlet Lions announced that Fred Korpinen is the winner of the 2005 Nikiski Grouch Competition. Fred is the candidate of American Legion Post No. 20. Does that mean congratulations are in order? It is an honor, right?

As you pass by the Friendship Mission's shelter home on the Kenai Spur Highway, one sees lots of helping hands are getting the building suitable for its purpose on the Kenai Peninsula. The World Changers will volunteer until Friday. Skipper (Graydon) and Mary Ann Cowhill are thankful for all who are giving of their time.

If you would like to take part, call them at (907) 953-0694.

Here's a Nikiski Senior Citizens Center housing update: The environmental review took longer than expected (paperwork) and it was suggested by Jim McConnell to the board to postpone actual construction until the spring of 2006.

For more information, call Leigh Sanger, director of the center, at 776-7654.

Celebrating a birthday Wednesday are Suzanne Jackson and Judy Leichliter; Thursday: Heidi Hall, Megan Hansen, Gabriel Strickland and Durainey Rawls; Friday: Arlene Gilliland; Saturday: Cheryl Hamann; Sunday: Nick Castro and Pearlina Speed; and Monday: Connor Hamman.

An anniversary celebration happening today is between Jim and Patty Herrick. On Thursday, Robert and Mary Carew will mark their special day.

Enjoy the summer!
