Glorious Summer in Talkeetna, Alaska!
###Everything grows huge in the summer sun. If you don't believe me, check out our pup Gracie's photo
below. The one on the left was when she was tiny, in December 2008. Here's how she looked in May --  she's the
size of our golden lab, Jackson, and still growing.
Also below are shots of our new (old) laundromat, SUDS Laundry & Propane Service, here in Talkeetna.
Associate Publisher Gale Moses has taken over as general manager and has mastered the fine art of pumping
propane. All that and an MBA as well!
 Follow this link for a look at our (under construction) Web page.
We opened on June 7.

news, briefs and club and entertainment news. We thank our readers and advertisers for their tremendous

ABOVE: Gracie the mastiff
mix pup has joined the herd at
Talkeetna Landings B&B and
the Alaska Pioneer Press.
This was her on Bachelor's
Weekend, Dec. 5th 2008. She
is now rather huge
and growing.

Before and after renovation, a
laundromat has again opened
in Downtown Talkeetna.
There aren't many washers, but afternoons are the
slowest time at SUDS. Call
355-1904 for information or
to let us know if you're coming down with a propane
tank -- or just show up! We're right behind  Twister
Creek Restaurant on Main Street. The propane pump
is at the front.
