The Seward Phoenix Log - News of the Eastern Kenai Peninsula since 1966

Rocking the Boat


The following is from the editorial page of the April 11, 1991 Seward Phoenix LOG.

DOWNTOWN MERCHANTS formed an organization they hope will get the renovations that downtown needs underway. By sticking together and making decisions as a group, the business owners can influence the shape of development and enhancement projects. The collective efforts will certainly help improve the economic climate downtown, hence boosting over-the-counter sales and the establishment of new businesses. There has been much talk about the northern migration of businesses, but talk is not going to help the merchants who want to ensure downtown is a vital part of the community. The Seward Downtown Merchant’s Association is an organization that will surely improve matters.

CITY MANAGER Darryl Schaefermeyer had to do some heavy-duty arm twisting to get the State House Committee that is examining the Exxon Valdez oil-spill settlement to try and stop by in Seward. If everything goes as planned, the committee will meet at the Seward Community Library April 12 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The $1.1 million to be paid by Exxon has been criticized as being too small, and there are aspects of the settlement that will limit future litigation. Seward’s views often go unheard, and Friday night would be a good time to make concerns known.

GOOD JOB SEAHAWKS... Seward is sending six wrestlers to the state tournament in Fairbanks this weekend, which means the club could manage a good team score in the competition. The high school was packed for the 10-team contest – and thanks to the volunteers who helped with the numerous jobs associated with running a tourney – everything went smoothly. Way to go Seahawks, and good luck in the weekend’s competition.
