Dairy Queen owners plan to re-open restaurant by April
Editor's note: This is part of a series looking back on some of the people and events making news in 2011.
Before a June fire totaled the restaurant, Soldotna's Dairy Queen was decorated with many trophies, model airplanes and other memorabilia.
Peter Ischi, co-owner, collected the decorations over the years. The trophies were an accumulation of his softball career as a sponsor, player and coach. They're irreplaceable once lost, he said.
