Outdoors
There I was driving down the road with my brother Jim who is visiting here from Minnesota. I’m short of time on this particular day because of a whole list of things I still need to do around the house and garage but still want to show Jim around Alaska too. I decided to load up some ice fishing gear and go check the ice on Watson Lake.

Donation will keep families trucking along
On behalf of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s Students in Transition/Homeless Program, I would like to publicly thank Tesoro Alaska Company for their generous donation of fuel cards. This is the second year that you have shown such generosity. With the use of these gas cards, over 50 families (105-plus students) will be able to access necessary services that will ease their homeless situations.

Football dreams fall short of goal line

It may seem strange for anyone to ask for a tax increase, but that’s exactly what a number of commercial fishermen around Alaska are doing, and Cook Inlet commercial fishermen may be next.

Senior year like learning to ride a bike, once you get the hang of it
Finally, I am a senior! My excitement and focal point for the year is graduation. I know there will be a lot happening in the interim, but it really isn’t that far away. I am counting down the months, the weeks, and days to the time I will walk up on the stage, receive my diploma, turn my tassel, throw my hat up into the air and say goodbye to the school where I have spent the majority of my waking moments.
