Happenings in Anchor Point

Attention, anyone on the southern Kenai Peninsula who installed in-floor radiant heat from 1991 through 1993, your home may be at risk. The hose used by the name of Entron #2, Heatway, is faulty. Severe damage from this product can cause flooding and subsequent damage to your property. Dwight and Diane Glanville of Anchor Point, whose 3,000-square-foot home sustained such damage, can supply more information, call Diane at 235-7653.

The group of attorney's handling cases dealing with the Heatway hose are Holland and Hart of Denver. Attorney Bill Maywhort is the firm's representative and can be reached at 303-290-1620.

Anchor Point extends its prayers and condolences to Blossom Nelson and her family on the loss of her husband, George. George was a vital person in the Anchor Point community for many years. He was active in the VFW, the community association, the Anchor Point Senior Citizens, and the Anchor Point Chamber of Commerce.

George truly exemplified the true American spirit with a love of God, country and family. He was so proud of his daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren. His love for his Blossom spanned over five decades, and the love between them never wavered. All of his friends in Anchor Point and all across the United States will miss George. Goodbye, dear friend, and we will all try to march to your cadence, Sarge.
