In between casts, time to think about the future

It's July on the Kenai Peninsula, and while we're preoccupied with all things fishing, there's a couple of important dates looming. The first of those dates is July 29 -- that's the deadline to register to vote in the Aug. 28 primary election. This year's primary will look a little different.

It's time to think big again

During a recent visit with the Peninsula Clarion's editorial board, Don Young, Alaska's lone representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, left us with this thought: The public needs to be more aware of where our state is going. What's more, we need a shared vision of our destination.
