Wickedly Delicious Candy Apples

Love at First Bite

A pro-life slate
I'd like to point out to all Pro-Life voters the following Pro-Life candidates:

Regarding Walker and Berkowitz
This letter was sent to Bill Walker in response to his announcement today that he has been approached by Ethan Berkowitz to make Walker the point man in finally giving us an All Alaskan Pipeline.

Doing the math on Murkowski contributions
After hearing the Murkowski camp complaining about Joe Miller receiving money from outside Tea Party supporters, I decided to look into where Lisa gets her money. I found several that list all the incumbents and downloaded the individual contributions from her top twenty sources. If you give more than $250, you are required to divulge your employer, and all contributions from that employer are counted toward that employer's total.

CIRI shareholder funds shouldn't go to campaigns
It has been reported that several regional corporations contributed as much as $140,000 each for a total of $805,000 to Alaskans Standing Together, a new policital action committee supporting the election of Murkowski.

Another vote for McAdams
This election season we will ignore the flood of TV and radio adds funded by outside pressure groups trying to buy votes for candidates who support their interests. Instead, Scott McAdams has our vote for Alaska's next U.S. Senator. McAdams will focus on the practical needs of a young, resource-rich state that urgently needs renewable energy, infrastructure, and jobs in all Alaskan communities. He has shown that he genuinely cares about people as individuals. Scott McAdams has reality experience in government as mayor of an Alaskan city, and in hard work earning a living for his family.

Definition of 'job'
I was challenged about the job of the president being a "community organizer" and that definitely was what he worked at after getting his law degree and going to work. But in searching, nobody seems to come up with anything else. In my wife's 1931 Websters dictionary, it says, Job: A piece of work, an employment occupation, duty, task.

Cancelled CPR class is disappointing
Soldotna Community Schools offered a class on CPR and first aid on Oct. 16. I registered early because I was afraid the class would fill quickly.

HEA rate restructure approved
The Homer Electric Association Board of Directors approved a rate-restructuring proposal that would increase the residential rate 3.6 percent.

Vandalism targets Murkowski campaign
A recent string of vandalism targeted local signs supporting Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Needed virtue: Persily: state should be patient on big gas pipeline
The Lower 48 is awash in cheap natural gas, true enough. But Alaskans shouldn't get discouraged about prospects for a large-diameter gas pipeline, to the point that they write a check from the state treasury for a smaller pipeline from the North Slope to Southcentral Alaska.

Board weighs future of fund
The school board welcomed back three returning members at its Monday night meeting.

No delivery: USPS rejects Nikiski's effort to get one ZIP code
If you live in Nikiski, your address might say Kenai. Or maybe you have two addresses: one in Kenai, one in Nikiski. Confused?

District seeks budget committee members
The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District is forming a committee to review how the budget is put together. Suggestions for changes or improvements to the Fiscal Year 2012 budget will also be discussed.

'Energy Watch' drill this evening
The Municipality of Anchorage along with the Matanuska-Susitna and Kenai Peninsula Boroughs are coordinating with regional utilities to hold a voluntary energy consumption drill.

Dale and Camille Morris
Soldotna residents Dale E. and Camille Morris died Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010, near Albany, New Hampshire. They were 55 and 58 respectively.
