Signs are up; let it snow

Looking for skiable snow? Check out the McNeil Canyon ski trails. Many thanks to Derek Stonorov and John Fitzpatrick for erecting the trailhead kiosk last fall. Marie Alexson painted the beautiful sign identifying the Kachemak Nordic Ski Club's role in establishing and maintaining those trails. Thanks to these folks for their volunteer work and support of our ski trail system.

The Baycrest Ski Trails have permanent signs at more of the major intersections. Over the past couple of years Wayne Watson has set the posts and Ty Gates has created the signs. This has been a huge job and kudos go to them for all of their work.

Now, let it snow.

Here's to more beautiful music

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Homer Youth String Orchestra Club for the scholarship award. I am greatly honored to receive this gift. I look forward to continuing my musical playing and composition as I move on from the club. The orchestra has meant so much to me; without a strings program in Homer schools, the Youth Orchestra presents the only opportunity for aspiring string musicians to play in an ensemble. I greatly appreciate this opportunity — thank you.
