KENAI — There was a time when planes would land on Soldotna’s streets, the only grocery store in Kenai was Archer’s and neighbors were separated by quarter and half miles. Bill Field was in the middle of it all.
He homesteaded on the Kenai Peninsula in 1952, and he has lived in Nikiski full-time since 1967.
He is a veteran, entrepreneur and commercial fisherman. Monday marked his 90th birthday, and he would have been fishing if the setnet fishery had not closed early.
