Another goal breaking United Way campaign

Once again the United Way Campaign for the Kenai Peninsula shattered its goal thermometer set at a hefty $600,000 for 2006 by Campaign Chair Sue Carter. ?I was just looking for one dollar more than Tom Boedeker?s successful campaign last year and it was exciting to exceed that and come in with a total of over $820,000 raised from our community. It shows how much the people of the Peninsula really care about their neighbors, the giving of the entire Kenai Peninsula is truly amazing, we may be small in number, but we are huge through the heart,? Carter told the Dispatch. Carter also attributed the record breaking campaign to the successful work accomplished in the community by the United Way member agencies, ?These dollars all stay and are utilized here on the Peninsula and are vital to the 26 locally based non-profit member agencies and the variety of services they provide year round.?

Through the looking lens

For the last 17 years Stacy Johnson has been the lady behind the camera that has made those special moments in our lives look as good as we feel about them. A professional photographer with a talent for unique posses and warm lighting Johnson?s images say more than the traditional year book or class photo. Known as the Picture Lady, Stacy is now working her magic from her home in Soldotna, ?The little kids would come up to me in the store and say ?Hey you?re the Picture Lady? and it was easier to just say yes to them and it just kind of stuck as the kids grew up, so now I enjoy it and am having fun being creative from my home which I now call Picture Lady Photography,? Johnson told the Dispatch. Johnson said she decided to start her home studio because she didn?t want to give up her passion for taking pictures but wanted the freedom of having her own business and being able to spend more time at home with her husband and family.
