Letters to the Editor

Thank you to the whole Fall City Days crew

  • Jul 25, 2014 at 2:00PM

Fall City Day has come and gone, but the thank-you’s roll on. Weather was perfect for 800 runners who participated in the Fall City Days Fun Run. Our amazing crew of volunteers led by Perry and Sharon Wilkins, Kirk and Sophie Harris, and Kirk Dunckel organized and ran a great event. Even more fun comes in September when we give away all of our proceeds, minus costs, back to our community organizations. The Raging River Riders 50th anniversary was evident in the parade and fair theme. Thank you to Libby, Laurie E., Lisa, Nikki, Brandon, Bill A. and Dan and Terri D., as they did a great job on everyone’s favorite part of the day.

A family deals with autism | Letters

  • Jul 1, 2014 at 4:04PM

I woke up this morning with a very heavy heart. Life with our kind of autism is absolutely mentally, physically and spiritually exhausting. Life with our kind of autism isn’t featured in the media because it’s not uplifting or involving early detection (which are both so important). What is our kind of autism? It involves aggressive behaviors that often come out of nowhere. Something misfires in my son Trevor’s brain and he goes into a rage. He doesn’t want to. This rage involves attacks on others but also on himself and ends with hysterical crying. These are not premeditated. Autism as a whole generally robs the person of social skills and awareness.
