Healing Stories - remembering Seth Eaton, thinking of Misty May

By Linda Waggener,

Negative results from illegal drug use in this region continues to be in the headlines and stays top of mind. The personal stories of folks like Misty May who walked through addiction and is on the healing side now give hope for all.

Then the stories of losses like young Seth Eaton two years ago, whose mother shared every parent's worst nightmare, and others whose families have shared their losses, give resolve to keep going to meetings and keep sharing information that may be helpful to others in trouble.

The story of how one father saved his son is a reminder of what families have to do to win the battle.

Memories of a great ride: 1964 Grand Turismo Studebaker Hawk

Robert Cumming writes:
Oh those wonderful Studebakers - always ahead of their time in styling and innovation. From designers like Brooks Stevens and Raymond Loewy in the fifties and sixties came the legendary Studebaker Golden and Silver Hawks and futuristic fiberglass Avanti. My first car at 16 in 1971 was a beautiful black 1964 Gran Turismo Hawk with a factory R2 option supercharged 289 V8, dual exhaust, bucket seats, automatic console shifter on the floor, machine turned dash with full instrumentation. What a ride... --Robert Cumming
