Kenai River conservation efforts long overdue

A tree fell in the woods and made a noise and Les Palmer did not hear it. He witnessed dead canaries floating down stream and said nothing. He could have been a voice on the Kenai-Soldotna advisory committee, spoke out against the Dan Coffey fish board when the king escapement was lowered from 14,000 to 9,000, or opposed an in-river derby, supported in-river limits, protected the river and the king salmon when there was still something to protect. Simply put if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Speaker's comments on board process appreciated

Hello Mr. Speaker, I appreciate your comments. A bad process is tantamount to bad government. It seemed odd that Mr. Cotten was interviewed after the list was reduced to one. This is not the first time the board of fish has gone rogue.

Support for Fisherman's Fund appreciated

Cook Inlet Fisherman's Fund held the annual dinner October 18. Attendance was a record 120. Bill and Donna Walker were in the neighborhood and joined us. Debby Cary did a great job on the food. I want to thank Laura at the fairgrounds, the McGahans for the art donations, Dave Martin for the salmon, those that donated door prizes, and lastly all the guests and raffle tickets buyers for their strong support. See you all again next October.

Fish board shenanigans point to need for new leadership

Well, we get more shenanigans from the board of fish. These political appointees have not deliberated in Soldotna since 1999. What is neutral about that? A rogue board with a re-allocation agenda for Cook Inlet is the best Governor Parnell can do. This is the second time he was spurned by his board. Can you say leadership? Bill Walker supports biological management for the maximum sustained yield and said that when he is elected governor the fish board will deliberate here on the Kenai Peninsula. I am supporting Bill Walker for governor, for change, for a future, for real.
