  • On the Kenai Peninsula, several Native villages with small populations boast vibrant schools that focus on connecting students with modern opportunities and traditional knowledge. KDLL’s Riley Board visited two fly-in only schools for this fourth part in our series about the diversity of public schooling on Kenai Peninsula. And, Trout Unlimited offers an opportunity to catch some fly-fishing skills and release extraneous outdoor equipment.
  • The Southern Kenai Peninsula is home to several villages of Russian Old Believers, a group that split from the Russian Orthodox Church in 1654 and came to the United States in the 1960s. In the public schools in the villages, Old Believer culture and bilingual education run throughout the school day. For the third part in our series about the peninsula’s schools, KDLL’s Riley Board visited three Old Believer communities. Plus, the Kenai Peninsula Borough set the funding level for the school district next year, with some wiggle room.
  • Three of the Kenai Peninsula’s smallest schools are connected to the road system but serve small towns where they become a community hub. As KDLL’s Riley Board learned when she visited the schools, small populations mean individualized education, multigrade extracurriculars and an entirely distinct social environment. Plus, there are 17 offshore oil platforms in the waters of Cook Inlet and six sit idle. Casey Grove, with Alaska Public Media, sits down with investigative journalist Nat Herz to find out why they're still standing.
  • A morning fire caused significant damage to a home in Funny River, another candidate throws their hat in the ring for the House District 6 seat and the Soldotna City Council considers tightening the city's disposable plastic bag ban.
  • The Soldotna City Council will consider trashing a loophole in its disposable plastic bag ban.
  • No injuries were reported in the Friday-morning blaze.
  • A Clam Gulch man was convicted of 60 felony counts related to sexual abuse of minors. A community’s landscapes are translated into soundscapes in a new art installation, and jet skis are back in the hot seat in Kachemak Bay.
  • Popular visitor attractions in Kenai are on hold until revisions and renovations can be made.
  • Upgrades are coming for Old Town Kenai historic resources, Seward residents will see higher electric bills this winter and a former Alaska State Trooper was sentenced to four years in prison for attempted child sex abuse involving a Soldotna teen.
  • A new property tax exemption in Kenai could save business owners up to $435
