Sensational Signs of Summer

Bees aren't always sweet
Regarding the issue with beekeeping in Woodland subdivision in Kenai, as a homeowner in that subdivision, I am concerned about the safety issues created by the bees. Earler this summer, my dog was stung when she stepped on one of the bees in my back yard. I had no idea that anyone in the neighborhood was keeping hives (because it is against city code to keep livestock within the city limits), so I didn't think to register a complaint with animal control. The vet bill was $55.

Time to get Sterling Highway fixed
I've been thinking about possible ways that would be effective in getting something done to improve the deplorable condition of the Sterling Highway throughout the Cooper Landing area. It's not only an embarrassment to those of us who reside on the Peninsula, it is also a deadly stretch of road and those departments who are supposed to be in charge of upgrades and maintenance should be ashamed to take any ownership in its condition.

Pilots snap Oilers' 7-game win streak
The Anchorage Glacier Pilots snapped the Peninsula Oilers' seven-game winning streak with a 3-2 win in extra innings in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday at Mulcahy Stadium. It was the Pilots first win over the Oilers this season. The second game was still in progress when the Clarion went to press. With the loss, the Oilers fell to 28-13 in the Alaska Baseball League.

Rain cancels Oilers, Twins games

Kenai Golf Report: Griffins, Sizemores team up to win Tesoro United Way Tournament at Kenai
I hardly know what to think as our summer continues to speed by and the rain shows no sign of letting up. I am grateful for the time that the wet, cool weather affords me to get inside chores done, but there are still outside chores waiting to say nothing of more rounds of golf at the Kenai Golf Course waiting to be played.
