Town Crier

The Kachemak Bay Birders will meet on Monday, April 2 at 4:30 p.m. at the Islands and Ocean Visitor Center in the auditorium. Following the meeting, Aaron Lang will present “Shorebird Identification.” Shorebirds are on their way and it’s always fun to learn a little more how to tell them apart. Aaron has excellent photos showing what we should look for and contrasts with confusable species. This is an excellent way to learn more and enjoy the beauty of these amazing birds. All meetings are free and everyone is invited to attend. All events are cosponsored by the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. If you have questions, contact Lani Raymond, 399-9477.

Shein visits Homer on campaign tour

Pitching himself as “standing for honest progressive values,” Democratic Party candidate Dimitri Shein visited Homer on Monday as part of his campaign to defeat Congressman Don Young. Shein faces fellow Anchorage candidates Gregory Jones and Alyse Galvin to win the Democratic Party nomination, although Galvin is running as undeclared or independent. Under Democratic Party rules allowing independents to run for the party nomination, Galvin could win the nomination.

Bagley proposes SPH service area change

An ordinance proposed by Kenai Borough Assembly Member and Vice-President Dale Bagley would dramatically change the South Peninsula Hospital Service Area by moving the current boundary south of Ninilchik. The new east-west boundary would run roughly along Oil Well Road. The ordinance comes up for introduction at the April 3 meeting in Soldotna and a public hearing at the May 1 meeting.

Best Bets

As we Alaskans know, living here brings many benefits: an Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend, no state sales or income taxes, and not being pulverized by chunks of Chinese spacecraft plunging to earth. Holy Fireball XL-5! Sometime this weekend, the experimental space station Tiangong-1 will come flaming down, perhaps on April 1.
