Team Tesoro helps preserve history

As our season at the Soldotna Historical Society winds down -- our last day open was Saturday -- we would like to extend appreciation to Team Tesoro for their energetic group who helped preserve a part of Soldotna's history.

On Aug. 14, Team Tesoro and family members met at the Homestead Village on Centennial Road in Soldotna and busily applied preservative to four of our historic buildings. We could have not accomplished this project without their help and are grateful that they found the time and energy to assist us. Team Tesoro's community spirit is wonderful.

With deep appreciation,

Vigil honors animals 'born to die'

The SPCA of the Kenai Peninsula would like to thank the following companies and individuals for all their support and efforts for helping the first candlelight vigil in remembrance of the animals succeed.

Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude go to the following: Father Tero, Seekins Ford, Coca Cola, Bailey's Furniture, Ron's Rent-It Center, Safeway, Fred Meyer, Kenai Chrysler Center, West Coast Paper, United Rentals, The Music Box, Scout Lake Feed, Dr. Jerry Nybakken, Dr. Marguerite McIntosh, Mackey Lake Company, and Farrier Neil Meglitsch.

Without all of their wonderful help and efforts, the vigil would not have been a success. We are looking forward to next year's vigil here and also in Anchorage. We also still have "Links of Love" available to purchase at

$1 each in memory of all the animals that were "Born to Die" in the year 2000 alone. We will continue to sell them until each one is sold to make the chain complete. Please call 262-8800 to purchase one or more. Thank you again, and God bless you all.

Donation benefits CARTS training

The board of directors and community partners involved with Central Area Rural Transit System would like to acknowledge the generous contribution of Tom Hodel at Soldotna Professional Pharmacy.

CARTS recently purchased two wheelchair accessible mini-vans with the state-of-the-art Q-Straint wheelchair restraint system. CARTS drivers required training on the restraint system, and Mr. Hodel graciously lent us a wheelchair at no charge for the training and waived the deposit.

Please join CARTS in recognizing this important assistance to the CARTS program!
