We support the President
Please understand that progressive minded people know what just happened to you. You did an historic thing with health care, and the people who stood to lose the most threw everything their money could buy at you. We know what the radical Republicans did, and even with all their despicable acts they failed to get Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Or to even get "one" super majority in Congress.

Cooper Landing trails get a hand
We would like to thank the Soltona Tsalteshi Ski Club, particularly Bill Holt, for the many many things that have been done to help our Cooper Landing Skiers get our first groomed ski trail. Without the time, effort, advice and loaned gear, we would not be enjoying skiing the Russian River Campground. A big thank you and we invite anyone who likes to ski to come and try skiing in Cooper Landing!

A big fundraiser 'Thank You'
A heartfelt thank you to our generous community. On behalf of the committee for the William Jackson Fundraiser, we thank you. We are moved by your generosity and love for a wonderful Peninsula patron such as William Jackson. Thank you to the local business who donated items for auction and resources. We are blessed to have such wonderful business owners in our community. Also thank you to each and everyone of you who attended and donated to the William Jackson fundraiser. The family has been greatly blessed by your overwhelming generosity and compassion. The fundraiser was a tremendous blessing to the family and an amazing witness of our empathy, kindness and concern. So thank you to each and every one who participated.

Around Campus: Spring registration at Kenai Peninsula College trends upward
The first statistics generated from general public registration for the upcoming spring semester reflect a nationwide trend that sees students shopping for college la carte. Compared to the record setting spring semester KPC saw last year, enrollment is up overall just under 25 percent. However, compared to last year, KPC is seeing a 25 percent decrease in full-time students (taking 12 or more credits) and a similar decrease in those students taking nine to eleven credits. On the flip side of that, enrollment for students taking six to eight credits is up almost 20 percent and those taking five or less credits are up 55 percent.
