Support office makes big difference for family
Fourteen months ago my husband was diagnosed with with Alzheimer’s type dementia. About a month after that I was made aware of the fact that we have a National Family Caregiver Support Office, staffed by a director and an outreach specialist, right here in Soldotna.

Caregiver support program works
I am writing this letter in regards to the National Family Caregiver Support Program and hoping it will help others as it did my mother and myself.

Individuals an asset to our community
I would like to take this time to thank two very important people here in Soldotna — Patsy Stringer and Connie Stephens with the National Family Caregivers Association. These ladies have been so helpful to me in dealing with the health issues of a family member.

Reader: Jans off the mark
Nick, Nick, Nick. Has moving to the city made you forget that Alaskans rely heavily on healthy game populations to meet their consumptive needs? (“Author joins fight against wolf hunt,” Clarion, Nov. 11.)

Input sought for plan
While many identify the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge’s Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area as an area that abounds with opportunities to see wildlife, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is attempting to make it even better.

Push for funds won’t be easy
Equitable funding for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District was the hot topic of discussion Monday when the school board met with members of the peninsula’s legislative delegation.

Gobbling up tradition
Wallace Hyde came to Alaska more than 20 years ago from Bozeman, Mont. He played guitar in a few bands and worked the trade that now pays his bills: custom carvings from antlers, horns and fossilized ivory. The artist lived and worked in Anchorage, Wasilla and several other small towns before settling in Kenai in 1998.

Williams’ dilemma: Filling revenue cup
Editor’s note: This is the last of a three-part series in which the Clarion will present Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor John Williams’ initial assessment of the state of the borough as he begins to put his administration together.

Beetles thrash forests in west; head east
The spruce bark beetle outbreak of the last decade is slowly shifting to the back burner of environmental issues on the Kenai as deep grass covers the stump fields and homeowners enjoy their “emerging views,” as real estate agents like to say.
