  4. An Outdoor View: Tourist trapRead the original story

    Thursday Jul 2 | Peninsula Clarion

    Wikipedia defines "tourist trap" as "an establishment, or group of establishments, that has been created or re-purposed with the aim of attracting tourists and their money." If this doesn't define the Kenai River and surrounding area in summertime, what does? While I applaud business owners who do things that benefit local residents, I don't think much of those who huckster our finite resources to gullible tourists with little or no regard to social or environmental costs.

  7. Ostrander's senior debut adds to buzz about Saturday's Mount MarathonRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jul 2 | Peninsula Clarion

    For the first time in years, Kenai's Allie Ostrander is not the clear favorite to win a Mount Marathon race. The last time that Ostrander crossed the Mount Marathon finish line not in first place was 2008, when at the tender age of 11 she finished an astounding second competing against runners as old as 17. And as "On the Rise: Allie Ostrander" documents, Ostrander probably wins that race if her parents didn't make her take the safest, and slowest, route down the cliffs at the base of the mountain.

  13. Deja vu in king salmon fisheryRead the original story

    Thursday Jul 2 | Peninsula Clarion

    Similar to last year, the managers of our sport fisheries have totally flipped on their position, thrown caution to the wind, bowed to politics and disregarded conservation of our genetically unique wild chinook for future generations. As of July 1, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game will suddenly open the lower Kenai River to single hook, no bait king salmon fishing - with retention allowed! So, let me get this straight: for the past two months, just like last year, this community has shouldered the burden of a completely closed sport fishery.
