Craft fair a sweet success
Soldotna Community Schools’ recent Valentine’s Craft Fair was a heartwarming success! This annual event, co-sponsored by the Soldotna High School National Honor Society, hosted many creative children and their parents. Children visited several craft tables, with an opportunity to “make and take” Valentine themed items. The NHS students helped the children to create a variety of crafts, ranging from heart face pencil toppers to heart shaped treat pockets.

Ski event slid smoothly

Evolution suffers from lack of proof
Recently there have been discussions about evolution versus creationism. Evolution theorists believe that our highly unique universe of matter, energy, space and time was created out of nothing by pure chance. Creationists believe the Bible that says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.” Your choice depends on your faith.

Jesus set the proper example
As a follower of Jesus, I would like to apologize for the letter (Jan 29) that said, “It’s time to stomp out atheists in America.” Interestingly, when Jesus was on earth He had the opportunity to get rid of the “unbelievers” and purify Israel. Most Israelites expected the long-awaited Messiah to come and overthrow the occupying Roman government. Jesus lost many followers because He refused to do so, stating, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

Peninsula Clarion - Schools

Personal struggles help author feel empathy for others
Four days before my first birthday I was in South Peninsula Hospital having surgery for an infection in my neck. From the time I was born I’d been on one antibiotic after another and doctors said I had a weak autoimmune system. After being tested for numerous ailments during the years, I was diagnosed with asthma at age 11 and took a daily Singulair pill and used an inhaler, which didn’t help much. I got my tonsils and adenoids taken out at 13 after having strep throat nine times in one year, but that seemed to have minimum effect.
