*UPDATED*

    As expected, election night came and went with the vast majority of races -- including House District 31 -- left in limbo, as the Alaska Division of Elections will wait a week before counting absentee ballots. 

   

    The only results reported from election night will be from in-person early voting and from ballots cast in precincts on election day.

  Monday evening the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District announced that 13 Southern Peninsula Schools were moving to 100 percent remote learning today (October 20). The reason: rising COVID-19 case counts in the area have pushed the South Peninsula up to the high risk “red” category in the district’s ratings matrix.

Homer Electric Association crews responded to a power outage affecting 613 members across Kachemak Bay on Monday. 

The outage started at 7:17 p.m., and at approximately 8:26 p.m., HEA Operations was able to isolate the outage to a section of power line between Six Mile and MacDonald Spit. The power was restored to all but 44 members by placing them on remote generation. 

The first Juneteenth celebration to be held in Homer will take place at WKFL Park today.
Juneteenth honors the day news reached Texas that the Civil War was officially over and that those enslaved in America were free by law. That was 155 years ago and more than two year after the passing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

    Tuesday, Gov. Mike Dunleavy issued a statewide health mandate due to the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases, both in Alaska and nationally.

    In an attempt to stem the transmission of new cases, the governor has mandated that all bars, breweries, restaurants, food and beverage kiosks or trucks, and other establishments serving food or beverages be closed to public dine-in service.

Members of The Kachemak Bay Scottish Club were the guests on Slack Tide this morning and they brought the best in Scottish musicians with them.
