Play it safe: Vaccinate young athletes -- Meningitis targets teens - Lori Buher
A new school year can be a busy time for families. As busy as it is, it's a critical time for parents to make sure their children are up to date on all recommended adolescent vaccines. To help get the word out, my son, La Conner High School graduate Carl Buher, will appear on ABC's Good Morning America tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 2, to talk about his own ordeal with meningitis, a life-threatening  illness that can be prevented with a vaccine.
Good Morning America airs from 7 to 9 a.m. on Seattle TV station KOMO channel 4.

Chet Cayou: 1922-2010
Longtime Swinomish Senator and revered Elder, Tee-Sa-Luk, Chester Cayou, Sr., died Friday, August 27. At 88 years old, Chester was Swinomish's most senior male tribal member. People on both sides of the channel remember him for his sense of humor, his tireless work on behalf of his community, and his abundance of knowledge, especially pertaining to history and Salish culture.

Letters to parents don't tell whole story - Sandy Stokes
The La Conner School District recently sent letters to parents stating that because some grades have not made Adequate Yearly Progress, parents are welcome to send their kids elsewhere at district expense. So far, no parents have taken the district up on the offer. The letters look alarming, but as the federal "NO Child Left Behind Act of 2002" ages, some experts predict that virtually every school in the nation will eventually be deemed inadequate.
