Scum alert!

A loyal reader sent the following:

We think we are immune to the disgraceful actions that we have observed from the looters in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Not so.

Tuesday evening at Battle Mountain High School the volleyball team began a fund raising drive to collect money for the victims of Katrina. The girls had a donation jar at the entrance to the game and had collected some significant cabbage only to have some low life scum snatch the jar while the gate receipts from the game were being deposited.

If anyone has any knowledge of who did this please leave an anonymous tip at 390-4657….and may bad karma follow this individual until they return the funds for the victims of Katrina.

Rebuilding starts at home

While many of us are trying to help victims of Hurricane Katrina, a couple in Eagle lost everything they had earlier this year. They’re trying to rebuild their lives, too.

Dan and Dawn Horner lived in a mobile home in Eagle. Earlier this summer, the home caught fire because of an electrical short. The place was a total loss.

The Horners bought a new home and can move it into the park they’re living in, but they still need some help with furniture, new carpet, and everything from bed sheets to pots and pans.

To help by contributing stuff, or helping with work on their new mobile home, please call 970-945-7451.

Helping hands needed

Dawn and Dan Horner are in a bad way.

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.
