ARE YOU PLANNING TO ADD A FIRST TIME ELECTRICAL OR TELEPHONE HOOKUP TO A NEW STRUCTURE?
As a consequence of the City of Delta Junction agreeing to develop an E911 Program for the 895 prefix it recently assumed responsibility for providing physical addresses for structures in the greater Deltana Region from Alaska Communication Systems (ACS). This physical street address is not to be confused with postal addresses. This is a necessary requirement for acquiring many associated property services including telephone and electricity. Official physical street addresses make it easier for emergency (fire, ambulance) responders to arrive at the site. The City has found this task to be time consuming and laborious. As a consequence, the City Council has implemented a $75.00 fee to apply for an address. This fee is applicable ONLY for the application of the address to property, which has heretofore not possessed a street address.
This fee will become effective and applicable on all applications made on or after November 15, 2004.
If you plan to apply for either a first time telephone or electrical hookup to a new building, the City encourages any landowners or developers to make application as soon as possible to avoid this fee.
If there are any questions in regard to this new fee please call either Dennis Dooley or Letha Burcham at 895-4656.

Memorial Service for Chaddie Kelly
“Her children rise up and call her blessed.” Proverbs 31:28. Chaddie Ruth Byers Kelly was born in an old stone house on the Canadian prairies of Saskatchewan, January 20, 1922, to Ernest and Lucy Byers. A survivor from birth, Chaddie weighed only two and a half pounds and was kept alive in a shoe box by her grandmother who wrapped warm towels around her until Chaddie was strong enough to survive on her own. She spent the early years of her life in Canada, riding her pony to and from school. At the age of thirteen, Chaddie arrived on a ship in Valdez with her family and traveled the Valdez trail to Fairbanks. She was introduced to her future husband, Samuel A. Kelly, at a Fairbanks dance and married in 1940. Chaddie and Sam were both true Alaska pioneers, living and working throughout Alaska. They had three children, Susan Chaddie, Yvonne Arline, and Samuel Angus III, who were born in Nome, Kodiak and Fairbanks, respectively.
In 1953, Chaddie and her family moved to Delta Junction. Sam began work at Fort Greely and they started a secondhand store which evolved into Kelly’s Hardware and Lumber. In 1961, the store burned to the ground, but was replaced by Kelly’s Motel which continues to operate today as Kelly’s Alaska Country Inn. Eventually, Sam became Delta Junction’s first mayor, while Chaddie enjoyed being a working wife, mother and businesswoman. Chaddie was a founding member of the Delta Businessmen’s Association which later became the Delta Chamber of Commerce. Sam retired from Fort Greely, but grew ill in the late 1960’s. Chaddie remained devoted to Sam until his death in 1981. Chaddie continued to operate the motel until a severe stroke in 1997 when her children joined her in the business. She enjoyed hosting the Delta Women’s Aglow meetings, home church groups, and many gatherings of friends and family in her living room.
Chaddie was an extraordinary woman, known for her elegance, grace, hospitality, charm, and generosity. Chaddie’s family and friends will miss her wit and wisdom; she was known for her ability to keep a secret and her incredible sense of humor. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were the joy of her life and they continue to honor her legacy as they serve the Lord Jesus and build their homes on His words.
Chaddie went home to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on October 13, 2004. She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, husband, and son. Chaddie is survived by her daughters Susie Sandy and Yvonne Echo-Hawk, ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. As in a line from one of her favorite movies Second Hand Lions, “She had a good long run and she went out with her boots on. Chaddie didn’t just live, she really lived!”
A memorial service will be held at Delta Christian Center, Sunday, October 17, 2004 at 4 p.m. Call 907-895-4667 for information. Donations may be made to the Ryan Kelly College Fund at Wells Fargo Delta Junction Branch.

New Classified Ads
We have set up a new classified ads page on the Delta News Web with easier access to different kinds of items being advertised. There are enough advertisements and enough premium ads that we saw the need for a better page structure.
The premium advertisements are now added into classifications. They are obvious with their bold face, color, and in some cases, images. Premium ads are also linked from the Delta News Web home page.
Other changes are coming! We're excited, and we think you will be pleased to see them. For one, we are working with a programmer to bring in new forum software. It is quite a bit more sophisticated than the old. There are other changes in the works, too -- but more on that as we get closer to implementing them.
