    And with more than $46,000 donated again this year, the SCCF is continuing a nearly twenty-five-year run of making a difference in the county.

    And we were ecstatic to see the foundation make some changes that mirrored some suggestions we made last year.

    In the Nov. 27, 2013 edition of The Sentinel-News, we wrote:
