Defensive driving course scheduled

A state-approved defensive driving course will be held at 9 a.m. July 30 at Kenai Peninsula College. The course fee is $50, plus $1 tax, payable by check or cash on the day of the class. This course can give participants two points off their DMV record or reduce-eliminate traffic citation fines. Check with the court for details if you recently received a citation. Insurance discounts may be available, check with your insurance agent. To register, call 283-5837.

Volleyball camp planned

The Kenai Central High School volleyball program will host the All-American Volleyball Camp on July 31 and Aug. 1. The camp is open to girls of any school in seventh through 10th grades for a cost of $99. The coaches of the camp were considered to be All-American players in their college careers. Some currently play professional volleyball in Europe. To preregister or for more information, contact Vanessa at 776-5851.

Village teens need host families

Two families are needed to host high school students from Port Graham. The Alutiiq village at the southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula has a school for kindergarten through grade 10, but high school juniors and seniors spend the school year staying in the central peninsula.

This year, two girls who plan to attend Soldotna High School, a junior and a senior, need host families. The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District pays a stipend to host families, and the students' own families are available in case of emergency.

Anyone interested should call Sharon Radtke at 262-7534.
