Temporary relocation of the solid waste containers at the Anchor Point Transfer Site will occur on Tuesday, July 23. The solid waste containers will be located a quarter-mile down School Street until September 9. This temporary placement is to facilitate construction upgrades to the present site on the Old Sterling Highway. Call the Kenai Peninsula Borough Solid Waste Department at 262-9667 with questions.

Phase One of the extension of the Safe Water project in Anchor Point has been completed by Foster Construction. All the pipes have been placed and the fire hydrants placed throughout the business area. Phase Two has begun with the clearing of the ground for the water purification building and holding tanks on Esther Avenue. Barring any major setbacks, water from this facility should be flowing by early winter.

Anchor Point homesteader Vi Chapman is recovering from a fractured hip. Vi is at home but confined most of the time to a wheelchair in her apartment at Homer's assisted living facility. A visit by old friends or a card would help brighten Vi's day. Vi enjoys sharing her experiences of homesteading in Anchor Point and talking about her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. Elizabeth April also resides in Homer senior housing and misses her old friends from Anchor Point.

The next time you are in Homer remember these two ladies who gave so much to the Anchor Point community throughout the years.

Have a safe, pleasant week and good fishing!
