Haley Smith, a 2003 Soldotna High School graduate and daughter of Scout and Lucki Smith, has returned to Washington State University after her visit home for the holidays. At WSU, Haley holds a position on the novice rowing crew team. She started her rowing sport with the Kenai Cruisers, now the Alaska Midnight Sun Rowing Crew.

The Spenard Builders Supply reader board for the week must be thinking about our New Year's resolutions. It says: "Be like a postage stamp; stick to one thing until you get there."

Here is a heads-up: Get ready and start that training if you are not already into the daily skiing mode. You have a few weeks to get ready. Peninsula women of all ages and abilities have an opportunity to ski together during the Tsalteshi She Can Ski Race, planned for Feb. 6 at 12:30 (classic) and 1:30 p.m. (skate). Registration will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 5 at Kaladi Brothers in Soldotna or at 9 a.m. race day.

The Kenai Peninsula Reading Council will host the third annual Peninsula Reading Carnival at noon Jan. 29 at Soldotna Middle School. There will be booths, including free bingo for books, crafts, food, book fair and the dinosaur jump. Storyteller Carol Ford will perform on the main stage at 12:30 p.m. For more information, call Virginia at 283-9374.

This time around, the Dine and Discuss topic is "Wilderness Medicine: Winter Safety." The event will happen Jan. 27. The presenters are Drs. Bob Ledda and Chris Mickelson, emergency room physicians. To make reservations or for more information, call 714-4500 or e-mail

Rosier Reed, from the Soldotna Toastmaster Club, will presents information about this international organization at the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce luncheon at noon today at the Riverside House.
