  • Walking for the little victims

    One in every 4,000 infants has an arterial ischemic stroke around the time of birth.

    Those who survive feel the effects all their lives. Depending on where the stroke occurs in the brain, the aftermath can vary. The survivors need strenuous therapy, often battle seizures, and struggle to develop on track with other children.

    But despite the struggles, they're survivors, and a handful of young survivors were front and center Saturday, leading the way at the Pediatric Stroke Awareness walk at Clear Creek Park.

  • A big horse racing Band-Aid

    Go to ChurchillDowns.com, and you will get a chance to win a box for Derby 136.

    Of course, first you have to let officials know if you would like to see night racing as a permanent fixture.

    Before I tell you my thoughts, I’ll let you know that I attended Downs After Dark last week, luckily after all the bugs out were removed.
