For the last two decades the Kenai Peninsula community has chosen a Saturday in August to say thank you to the industries that provide the tax base that build our schools, pay our teachers and safety personnel, pave our roads and build our ports and harbors. The original idea of Jack Brown and the late Aaron Goforth, the totally free event, not even vendors can sell anything, draws a crowd of thousands annually to honor leaders among the industries that fuel the Peninsula's economic engine.
Please accept our sincere thanks to all the people attending the Oldtimer's party last Thursday. Thanks also to the newspapers for announcing our event and to Merrill Sikorski for his efforts, the staff at the Senior Center, kitchen cooks and helpers for all your extra work. I hope you all enjoyed the memories. Next summer, Aug. 20, 2015 will be the 20th anniversary. Please mark your calenders and hope to see you all there.
On July 16, my son, daughter in-law and myself were involved in a boating accident on the lower Kenai River. When the accident occurred there were several people that went above and beyond to come to our rescue and help when needed. We would like to thank the Kenai Police, the commercial fisherman, the Kenai Fire Department, and the others involved in this rescue. Thank you so much for all that you have done. Also, wear a life jacket as it saved our lives.
I believe Alaska needs a governor with the capability to make things happen, someone who will work tirelessly to boost our fiscal security. We need someone with the background and expertise to change our current path. I want a governor who will lead us toward innovative ideas, that will reverse the downward course this state is headed. I want a governor with integrity and decency, someone who understands the value that Alaska's first people bring to the table. I want a governor who brings honor to the office of The Governor of Alaska.
