Adventures of a wildlife photographer "Hidden Alaska"-Part 8

July 24, 2012

When I last wrote I was out to sea, at the end of Resurrection Bay, south of Seward, Alaska. We had a wildlife filled, beautiful scenic boat ride from Fox Island southward towards the Kenai Fjords. Seeing Killer Whales, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and a vast variety of birdlife was, to this photographer, incredible. It was becoming quite clear to me that this was really the photographic adventure of a lifetime. Not only was I seeing a vast amount of wildlife and scenery, but we were definitely off the beaten path, so to speak.

County endorses application for ‘shelter’ grant

July 24, 2012

SMETHPORT – A high rate of poverty and substantial unemployment have led to an ongoing “homeless” problem in McKean County.
To address this dilemma, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) in Bradford is seeking a grant of $68,374 from the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
Using funding from the United Way and other sources, the YWCA will match the grant “dollar-for-dollar,” according to Amy Pierce. She is the executive director of the YWCA, which operates the only “homeless shelter” in McKean County.

Herzog, however, claims that all forest properties under the “Clean and Green (C&G)” program should be valued at only $94 per acre.

More teams sought for Kane Relay For Life

July 23, 2012

The Kane area always has been a major supporter of the annual Relay For Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.
This year, however, interest in the major fundraiser appears to have waned.
Only four teams so far have registered to participate in the Relay For Life to be held Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Kane High School track.
"Kane was once very, very big among our Relays," Katie Dupree said Monday. "But this year we only have four teams. That's very low for Kane. Some of our former teams didn't have new people to take over."

Family Dollar opens in Kane

July 23, 2012

A line of people gathered on Saturday July 21 at the doors of the Family Dollar Store for their 8 a.m. official grand opening ceremony of the 519 North Fraley Street location.  The Kane Family Dollar store gave away two youth bicycles to one lucky boy and girl and $5 gift cards to the first 50 patrons.  Patrons were also invited to enjoy refreshments and sales throughout the day.  Acting Manager Cindy Oyler is unsure of exactly how many patrons the Family Dollar of Kane saw over their grand opening weekend but she and her staff were “very busy serving a lot of people.”
