Kenai library expansion another step closer to reality
Thank you, Friends of the Kenai Community Library. Because of your efforts, the library expansion has taken another huge step to becoming a reality.

'Exploder' had a long, useful life
I enjoyed the recent Verbatim article by Carol Clonan (Clarion, Dec. 7). She is truly a talented young lady. Readers should note that the "Exploder" is/was a workhorse of a vehicle. Her father (me) abused the car for many, many years before it came into Carol's possession -- driving it into ditches, towing another vehicle up the Alcan Highway, exceeding load capacities, and other things her father would never admit to.

Too much noise: Soldotna cracks down on modified mufflers

Photo feature: A wee bit of fun
Obadiah Moore gets an autograph he won't lose from WeeMan during a stop on a Monster Energy drink promotional tour at The Place Bar in Nikiski on Thursday night.

"I love it here," WeeMan said of his Alaska stops, which will include appearances in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

Carolyn Rose Crane
Alaskan native and Sterling resident Carolyn Rose Crane died Thursday, Dec. 3, 2009, at Mile 76.1 Seward Highway from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She was 26.

Stop the pain, once and for all

Drug testing -- for humans -- comes to Iditarod
As the Iditarod prepares for its 38th running, it does so on the verge of several large changes, one of which involves testing mushers for drugs and alcohol this March.

The hills are alive!: Riders enjoy good start to season
The hills are alive with the sounds of revving engines, as snowmachiners prepare for another riding season in the Caribou Hills, due east of Ninilchik.

In praise of the sound
I spent a lot of time on Cook Inlet this past summer, but I never did get out on Prince William Sound.
