Thoughts on Colton Harris-Moore’s story | Letter

  • May 2, 2016 at 12:00AM updated at 4:15PM

Colton needs $300,000 to cryogenically preserve his mother. The perfect Mother's Day gift – a frozen mother. What Colton evidently hasn't considered is that the mainstream medical magnates would want to find a cure. The National Cancer Institute alone has spent over 90 billion in the last 40 years in the war on cancer. Cancer fighting is big business. A cure would mean one less thing to declare war on. Heaven forbid. And as far as I know, no one is funding a "Peace On Cancer" campaign.

Thank you to the Orcas Lions | Letter

I would like to give a roar of THANKS to our Orcas Lions Club! Just recently, and for the second year in a row, they have sponsored hearing and vision screenings for ALL of our eligible students. What an incredible service! Seeing and hearing correctly makes learning so much easier. Screening our students is a major effort, and having the Lions bringing their van and volunteers right to our front door has been such a valuable help to us. With their help, we were able to screen almost 200 children in one day! We love our Orcas Lions!
