The Seward Phoenix LOG

Good Luck Dan! – Seward teacher and dog musher extraordinaire Dan Seavey is off and running behind his dogs this Saturday when he takes part in the second commemorative run of the Iditarod Race. Dan and his team came in third in the running last year of this race by dog team from Knik to Nome, a grueling 1,100-mile course.

Housekeeping Items Occupy Agenda at Council Meeting – At the Monday night Council meeting Council/Assemblyman Bernard Hulm reported that the plans for the new Seward High School with swimming pool and request for schematic plans for a new Seward High School with swimming pool and gymnasium would be presented at one of the next two Assembly meetings. City Manager Jim Filip reported that a preliminary budget had been drafted and would be ready for a work session on March 4. He said a copying machine had been purchased for use by the public. Councilmember Vincent commented under council discussion on the need for stricter enforcement of parking regulations on Fourth Avenue, with specific attention to those around hydrants.

Assembly Increases Per Diem & Travel – An ordinance passed at last week’s Assembly meeting raised assemblymen’s salaries from $150 to $200 per month, while a second ordinance passed increased per diem and travel reimbursement, “in line with inflationary increases.”

Liberty Theatre – Now showing: “On Any Sunday.” Sunday matinee: “Blood on the Arrow.” Coming attractions: “Live and Let Die” and “The Salzburg Connection.”

Talent Shapes Up for Talent Show – Postmaster Bob Mott will be the master of ceremonies for the Library Talent Show to be held March 16. The program will include a combo group with Jim Pullar and John Walsh; a skit with Warren Huss directing; the singing troubadour, Doug Capra; a vocal solo by Beverly Noel. Renee Skinner and Dot Bardarson have their heads together. When they get together anything might happen. Dane Amos is getting into shape for a new and different drum solo; Linné Bardarson has a special number and the Bluebirds will perform.

Servicemaster – Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning.

Dancer to Appear – Dancer Frances Alenikoff will appear in Seward March 6. Her appearance is under the auspices of the Seward Concert Association. Her performance is titled multi-media and total-theater – media mix. She combines dance with films, slides, tape collages, poetry, naturalistic movement and mime.

Seward Native Association – Meeting, Friday, March 8 at 7 p.m.

Bill to Divide F&G Considered – Sen. Bob Palmer writes from Juneau that House Bill 499 is receiving some attention. The bill would split the present Board of Fish and Game into two boards.

Star Tesoro – Mile 1 Seward Highway. The welcome mat is out!

Cooper Landing News Notes – The CL Advisory School Committee meeting was Feb. 20 with teachers Gary and Susan present. Jean, Joyce and me (the committee), and guests Carol Norvell, Therese Norris and Maurie and Nellie Amundson. Keith Specking is a good man to have in the House of Representatives in Juneau. When we’ve needed his help we’ve gotten it – and fast. The recently finished pedestrian walkway on the Kenai River Bridge in which Keith was instrumental, is an example. As we were about to call the school committee meeting to order, the school phone rang and it was Keith calling from Juneau.

Alaska Shop Fountain – Morning is good. Continental Breakfast: Juice, Sweet Roll, Coffee or Tea, $1.

Boro briefs – It is finally official. A summons and complaint were files on the Kenai Peninsula Borough, its mayor and the South Kenai Peninsula Hospital Service Area. We had read about it the Saturday night before in the Anchorage paper; we had heard over the radio that it was done a week ago; we had received a letter a few weeks ago that it was coming, but it was Tuesday, the 19th before it was an actuality. The suit is from Kachemak City and other citizens. It is asking that the service area be declared illegal and to stop all expenditures of funds therein and to stop the operation of the service area.

Classified Ads – Sno Jet 338 and trailer, only slightly used. For rent, new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, Bayside. Flight instruction, Cessna 150. For sale or trade, barrel stove and seal skins. 1972 Mustang, automatic, power steering and power brakes, 15,000 miles, excellent condition.
