Helping hands needed

Daily Staff Report
Rachel Glandorf just got a little help with college. Glandorf, who graduated this year from Vail Christian High School and is now living with her parents in Peoria, Ariz., just earned a $1,000 grant from the Comcast Foundation. The grant is part of the Leaders and Achievers program sponsored by the cable TV firm. Grants reward high school seniors for exemplary community service, leadership skills, positive attitude and academic achievement. The $1,000 grant will serve Glandorf well this fall, when she heads to Baylor University in Texas. Good going, Rachel!

The Horners’ home in the Green Acres mobile home park near Eagle burned to crisp late last month. The couple lost everything, and they had no insurance.A donation account for the Horners has been set up at Alpine Bank in Eagle, and some jars are sprouting up at downvalley businesses.
