Forest Acres Housing Solution
By H.B. Bardarson
For the past month, the Seward community has been in an active dialogue about the importance and need for affordable senior housing. After the City of Seward had suggested a 0.7-acre parcel from Pat Williams Park along the Ballaine Street Waterfront, local residents were in an uproar about the location of the proposed housing. For the past month, Planning and Zoning and City Council meetings have been packed with longtime Seward residents, where the majority spoke against the Pat Williams Park location. After hearing hours of public comments, receiving emails and letters, phone calls, and lengthy petitions, the City of Seward has proposed a new location for the Senior Housing Project in Forest Acres across from the Army Resort (or Army Rec Camp) at parcel 11A Diamond Boulevard in the Fort Raymond Subdivision.
Lessons Learned in the Guatemalan Highlands
By Bob Stark
Rainy season has arrived, and we are tucked inside, reflecting on our past month in Guatemala and the remarkable journey in entirety. Two months ago, we said goodbye to our small family of pups and chickens, wishing good luck to our housesitter, Diane, who flew in from Hawaii to manage the homestead. One month ago, we left our lazy hammock life in Puerto Escondido to volunteer building an earthbag dome in a small highland village along the banks of Lago de Atitlan. And three days from now, we will methodically fill every crevasse of space inside our overflowing backpacks to ride a chicken bus from Panajachel to Guatemala City for an airplane headed home. Well-rested, inspired and wizened, we will begin our summer adventure.
Join the fun!
