Nikiski assembly candidate John Quick has been ordered to cease and desist working with a local political action group. 

 

 


        Sport anglers got the full length of the Upper Kenai River to cast a fly in this week. The Upper Kenai from Jim’s Landing to Skilak Lake has reopened for boating on Tuesday. Additionally, Skilak Loop Road and both the Upper and Lower Skilak Lake boat launches have reopened.

The only area remaining closed on the Kenai River is the channel on the south side of the river at approximately RM 70, to support firefighting activity.

Rainbow trout fishing on the Middle Kenai River is good to excellent.

    The board of directors of the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council is meeting in Kenai Thurs. and Fri. Though the City of Kenai doesn’t have a seat on the council, the Kenai Peninsula Borough is represented and so every few years the city of Kenai hosts a meeting.

Vote for Quick

 

The Alaska Public Offices Commission continued its hearing on a complaint it received about Nikiski assembly candidate John Quick Thursday. A political action group has been posting ads on his behalf on social media and his associations with that group have landed him in murky ethical waters yet again.

 

 


       It won't be formally addressed until its next regular meeting, but last night the Kenai City Council heard from a couple cannabis store owners about proposed restrictions to hours of operation.

Ron Isaacs of The Gardens on the Spur Highway in Kenai was against any limiting of store hours beyond what the state requires. He pointed out that only the hours of marijuana stores in surrounding jurisdictions were considered when coming up with the proposed restrictions.
