Letters to the Editor


And what a prom it was...
The Editor:
We would like to thank Blaine Marina for the use of their truck to carry all our props and decorations to and from the ferry terminal for our junior/senior prom held June 2. To all the parents who gave of their time so willingly, thank you!
A very special thank you to Cindy McDonald, the coordinator behind the efforts and ideas of the kids and parents. Cindy, we appreciate all that you do!

Fruits of friendship
The Editor:
I am the grandmother and sole caretaker of Blaine high school student Paul J. Flores.
As you are aware, Paul is completely dependent for all his needs. He is however, very social and enjoys the interaction of his peers. He is always very excited to go to school each morning, and although it is hard for him to be confined to a wheelchair for the entire day, he never complains when he returns home, but does need a nap.
Some students have taken it upon themselves to interact with Paul and be his friends. I appreciate this effort very much, not only for what they give to Paul, but also for the help it gives to me.
I am sure that Paul’s excitement is multiplied because of these students. Paul and I are at home with only each other much of the time and knowing that he has had this special attention during the week makes it much easier on me. I don’t feel the pressure as much to make sure that the weekend is as busy for Paul.
Haily Braumberger, Andrew Martin, Nick Leininger and Michael Braun have continued to spend time with Paul this year and I commend them greatly. They have opted to spend their free time with Paul, giving him their time and attention. They are very special people and I hope that they are acknowledged for their kind hearts. Please convey my special thanks to these young people and let them know how much they are also helping me.
Nancy J. Cook
