High school boundaries provide students’ choice
While some believe high school boundaries in the Kenai Peninsula School District are drawn in a manner that favors one school over another — at least in terms of athletics — the boundaries are based more along traditional lines.

Mixing it up
Golf can be a mixed-up game for sure. Sometimes that’s good and at other times, not so good. Personally, I think it’s my golf ball that’s mixed-up. Why else would it go right when I obviously hit it left or go over the green when it was supposed to go in the hole?
