Old Town facelift continues

HOMER TRIBUNE/Randi Somers - A colorful compass rose is now painted on the pavement at Main Street and Bunnell, the first step in a new landscaping project.

HOMER TRIBUNE/Randi Somers - A colorful compass rose is now painted on the pavement at Main Street and Bunnell, the first step in a new landscaping project.

The Old Town renewal team finished painting the compass rose at the intersection of Bunnell and Main streets on Monday, and started painting the sun mural at the intersection in front of Two Sisters Bakery. 
“Before winter, we are hopeful for more mural painting in Old Town and look forward to designing and planting Old Town People’s garden, with a meandering path along Bunnell Avenue that features edible landscaping (fruit trees and bushes), signage and seating,” coordinator Brianna Allen said.
“After our successful painting days, I am hopeful to get a strong volunteer turn-out. The paint is extremely toxic, making the project adult appropriate.”

Have a constitutional conversation
Sharon Cissna, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress, will lead a community discussion on the Constitution and your rights.
“How does the Constitution of our State and the U.S. Government affect the public’s rights here in Alaska? What power do the people have when their will and the will of the multi-national corporations, for instance, are at odds?”
Cissna’s conversation runs 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, and the public is invited. It will take place at the Kachemak Bay Campus of the Kenai Peninsula College, 533 E. Pioneer Road. The event is hosted by the District 30 Democrats in Homer. Cissna won the primary election for the Democratic Party and will be on the ballot Nov. 6.
