Ninilchik Community News

Posted: Monday, July 02, 2007

Happy birthday to Frank Miller on July 5; Marilyn Morris on July 6; Anna Sutton and Carol Jones on July 7; and Muriel Mead on July 8.

If you are hungry for some pizza Friday evenings, you may be able to satisfy your cravings and support the Ninilchik School Lady Wolverines basketball team at the same time by ordering a pizza to go. The 16-inch pizzas are made to order with Cindy Schnabl’s famous homemade crust. Orders can be picked up from 4 to 9 p.m. Call 398-9095 to place your order.

I noticed there has been a lot of activity at the Kenai Peninsula State Fairgrounds lately. The 4-H Junior Market Livestock members had two work days last week painting the poultry barn, working on the sheep and goat barn and cleaning up the grounds.

The Ninilchik Traditional Council will have its community potlatch July 14 at 1 p.m. A dedication to David Cooper Sr. will be conducted. It will be held at the educational fishery net number one on Ninilchik beach, north of Ninilchik River. The community is encouraged to bring a dish to share and fish the educational fishery net. This is a drug- and alcohol-free event. For more information, call 567-3313.

You might have seen the lost dog poster at the Ninilchik Post Office offering a reward for a Jack Russell terrier named Baby. The dog’s owner, Jenny Morris, said her dog bailed out of their vehicle when they were checking out the fire on Falls Creek Road. She was happy to report Baby was found and turned in by a couple from Clam Gulch.

“They wouldn’t even take a reward,” Jenny said.

Buz and Lou Buzunis have their daughter, Shauna, and son-in-law, Jarome Jacob, with their 22 month-old daughter, London, visiting from California. The Buzunis’ granddaughter, Mckenzie Salinas, also came along for the visit.

Happy Valley has had some special guests lately, as a mother otter has been seen nursing her baby on the beach on several occasions. Also, a gray whale was seen feeding along the shoreline at the Plumb Bluff subdivision last week.

Shirley Schollenberg of Happy Valley organized the second annual Trail Ride Extraordinaire on June 23 to benefit the Kachemak Heritage Land Trust. Fifty-four riders from the Mat-Su Valley, Anchorage, and all over the peninsula took a trail ride to the head of Kachemak Bay and had lunch near an old trapper’s cabin.

The trail took the riders by the secluded Russian settlement of Kachemak Selo, then across Swift and Fox creeks within view of the glaciers beyond the flats. The trail continued along Fox River to an abandoned Russian settlement of Dolena. Rider Aurora Lambert, of North Fork Road, said it was neat to meet a variety of horse people from other parts of the state and enjoy the spectacular scenery as they explored new trails together.
