New Reporter with the Right Stuff

Dear Bay Weekly:

I wanted to say what a great job Gail Howerton did reporting the dedication of the Sportsmanship sculpture at the Rec Department on Harry Truman Drive [“Parks and Rec Keeps Up with the Cows”: Vol. IX, No. 30: July 26-Aug. 1]. She is a real asset to your paper. I am one of the sculptors and met her at the ceremony. She is delightful to speak with as well as a very accurate reporter.

Sincerely,

– Barbara Cantor, Edgewater


Share Your Refund with Charity

Dear Bay Weekly:

The State of Maryland, the District of Columbia and other jurisdictions are launching variations on “tax-free spending” week to “celebrate” the tax rebate checks most of us will receive. No doubt, mine will go to purchase school supplies. However, an article in the Washington Post struck a chord with me: If each of us donated 10 percent of that refund to our favorite charities, we’d have a huge effect across the country.

So, before you rush out to the stores, please consider donating even five percent of your refund to Americans for Better Care of the Dying. Such a donation will add your name to our list of “Innovators” and will go far to promote our mission to ensure that all Americans receive excellent health care when they are seriously ill with a fatal illness. We also advocate on the Hill on issues that affect family caregivers. Find our book Handbook for Mortals excerpted at www.abcd-caring.org.

You can even make donations in honor of loved ones, living ones, or soon-to-come ones. Please send donations to the attention of Roshon Gibson.

- Janice Lynch, Director of Communications: Americans for Better Care of the Dying, 4125 Albemarle St., NW, Washington, DC 20016
