When Maria Woolard volunteered with World Changers for the first time, she knew how to paint a little, but that’s it. Now in her third year, she knelt down outside Janice Patrick’s Kenai home Thursday holding a board in place while a friend pounded a nail in.

Fourth of July on the march
Ever wanted to enter a parade but lacked the hand-eye coordination baton twirling requires? Is the concept "left-right-left" foreign to you but you want to march anyway? Then stop by KDLL's truck on Wednesday with a lawn chair and your sense of humor and join the ranks.
