To The Herald-Whig:


I was fortunate to have had the real honor of being on the Honor Flight of May 17. We had a great send off, a pleasant flight and a great reception at Washington, D.C., airport. A very full day of visiting the World War II Memorial and the other war memorials. I was impressed by the Iwo Jima memorial; I did not see the flag go up, but I was there. Our flight home was great and the reception we received on arrival was really great and the escort to Quincy was awesome.


I wish to thank the people who sponsor these flights and the many people and organizations who donate their money to make these flights possible.

In Case You Missed It

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
