On behalf of the KDLL Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, members and listeners, I would like to thank Rebecca Lambourn and all of the wonderful musicians who donated their time and talent at the Open Mic Musical Extravaganza on Nov. 15 at Veronica's Cafe.

Bridge lights a bright idea
I think the lights on the new bridge are wonderful! After nearly 50 years in this wonderful state, I've come to value the things that bring color and light to our almost five months of darkness each year.

I am writing to urge everyone to sign the Alaska Clean Water Initiative. This initiative would promote responsible mining and protect Alaska's clean water and wild salmon by not allowing the dumping of any toxins into surface or groundwater used as salmon habitat or drinking water.

Public comment keeps vets memorial, cemetery talks alive
The fact that a city cemetery and a veterans memorial in Soldotna Creek Park were not on the city council's agenda Wednesday night did not deter foes and friends from voicing their opinions on the controversial topics.

Despite the contention between guided and non-guided anglers, the Kenai-Soldotna Fish and Game Advisory Committee breezed through guiding proposals at Wednesday's meeting relatively quickly. The committee voted to support four proposals but opposed the rest, most of which sought to restrict guides on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers.

Peat deposits record postglacial climate history of the Kenai
Old-timers who came to the Kenai after World War II have seen glaciers like Portage, Tustumena and Grewingk steadily pulling back into the mountains. These glaciers are small relicts of the ice sheets that extended out across the Kenai lowland and filled Kachemak Bay, and locally merged with even larger glaciers that came across Cook Inlet from the Alaska Range. The action climaxed 23,000 years ago at the height of the last glaciation.
