Is this deal any better than the last one?
During "King Murkowski's Reign," I publicly criticized him severely in the media for his proposed pseudo-contract with the oil/gas producers for a natural gas pipeline from the North Slope to the Lower 48. Since it really wasn't a contract but promised fiscal certainty and other give-aways to the oil/gas producers for 40 years, and allowed them to start building the natural gas pipeline when they felt like it, it just didn't seem appropriate for Alaska. Our Legislature agreed.

Reader feels privileged to volunteer time
Having had a father that served in World War II, also a Purple Heart recipient, and three brothers who served in the military as well, I found it a privilege and an honor to volunteer my time as a Kenai Elks member for the Wounded Warrior soldiers. I thank those who donated their goods and services and to those who cheered the float as it passed by in the Fourth of July parade.

Kenai Golf Report: Holiday weekend is over, let's play some golf
The Kenai Cup action continued on July 2 with the Kahuna's team of Gordon Griffin and Cliff Baker winning their match by a forfeit of the Atigun, Inc. team of Jack Focose and Gene Diamond. The Back Page team (Daryl Palmer and Tom Parker, substitute) carded a sound victory over the G-Men (Jerry Norris/Gary Katsion). The Grey Beards team of Pat Bowen/Greg Anderson narrowly defeated the Eldon and Ryan Harvey team, better known as H&H. Two Duffers (Jack Evans/Bruce Galloway) vanquished the Space Cadets team of Kirk Hyman/Jeff Johns and the The Eagles (Noel Widmayer/Tom Allison) had a bye. The season standings are now the Two Duffers (Jack Evans/Bruce Galloway) in first place, followed by the Back Page team (Greg Harrington/Daryl Palmer) in second and the Space Cadets (Kirk Hyman/Jeff Johns) in third. With only a two-point spread between the first and third place teams, anything can, and probably will, happen, so be sure to stay tuned for the next round.
