The strength to grow
It’s a mild Friday afternoon and Bailey Balzer is playing video games.
She clutches the controller and looks at her competition — two boys thinking they’ll have an easy opponent in the 10-year-old girl.
Ambient chatter surrounds the three youths as they set up the Nintendo Wii console at Icons 907, a youth recreation center owned in part by Bailey’s parents in Kenai’s Old Town.
“It’s on,” Bailey says with confidence.
