Kids return wallet
ARLINGTON – A man down on his luck saw it change when two preteens returned a wallet he had lost with $500 in it.
David Gray, 12, and Case Baker, 11, found the wallet in a gas station parking lot.
It was just one more bad thing for Scott Ames, who is going through a divorce and whose house is up for sale.
The money wasn’t the only important thing in his wallet. There was a photo of his late mother in there, along with his driver’s license, and insurance and credit cards. To reward the kids, Ames gave them $100.
MG at nationals
MARYSVILLE – Nine Marysville Getchell students competed in the recent Future Business Leaders of America 2019 National Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
It was the third-straight year MG students had qualified. To put that in perspective, only 1 percent of FBLA participants make it to nationals.
The nine included: Ashlyn White, who competed in computer games and simulation programming; Taryn Neal, introduction to parliamentary procedures; Amanda Warren, business communications; Sterling Dawson, help desk; and the team of Gabe Coe, Joseph Gabriel Ecolango, Katelyn Millar, RaeAnn Davis and Evan Fetro competed in parliamentary procedures.
