National EMS Week honors responders

First started by then-President Gerald Ford in 1974, National Emergency Medical Services Week is dedicated to all of the emergency medical service providers across the nation. Emergency Medical Services is a comprehensive system encompassing a wide range of services beginning with the interested public that calls 911 when they see someone in need.
Once the call is placed to 911, trained emergency medical dispatchers coordinate the response of those resources necessary to take care of the call and provide medically based care instructions to those citizens on the scene to render aid.

Thanks ‘sew’ much for another outstanding quilt show

The Kachemak Bay Quilters held their 32nd annual quilt show last weekend at the Elks Lodge. While attendance was not as high as years when the show coincides with the Shorebird Festival, there was a steady stream of visitors and a constant chorus of “oohs” and “ahhs” as viewers walked the show to identify their favorites and vote in the different categories.
n the Large Bed Quilt category, two extraordinary paper-pieced king-size quilts pieced by Cinda Martin won first and third place ribbons. Both quilts were made using quilt designer Judy Niemeyer patterns in colors picked by Cinda, and both the “Lumina Star” and “Raindrops” quilts were long-arm quilted by Karrie Youngblood.
There was a tie for second place in the Large Bed Quilt category. Enid Keyes’ dramatic black and gold “That Night In Venice” embroidered and pieced quilt shared second place with Bonnie Dupree’s colorful “Starburst” pieced quilt.

Congress bipartisan to promote new technologies

Sometimes there’s actually encouraging news coming out of Washington.
In an effort to update America’s energy policy, and tackle some looming problems for the nation’s manufacturers, the Senate has passed new, bipartisan legislation. The bill addresses such diverse issues as cutting-edge energy technologies and America’s increasing dependence on minerals and metals sourced from overseas.
So how did all of this good news come about?

It’s time to support marijuana establishments in our community

The Kenai Peninsula Borough currently has a review process in place for the licensing of marijuana establishments. It has named the assembly as the local regulatory authority.
When a marijuana licensee provides a completed packet to the state, it will be sent to the borough government for review, first by the planning department and then by the assembly.
