Some may remember the infamous Seattle billboard: “Will the last person leaving Seattle turn out the lights?” The billboard appeared in April 1971 after Boeing shed 60,000 jobs at its Puget Sound plants.

One of the key ways to stimulate innovative life sciences research is the Life Sciences Discovery Fund.
Former U.S. Senator Bill Frist, M.D. recently penned an opinion letter on Forbes.com in which he stated, “Alzheimer’s disease has been notoriously challenging, but researchers are committed to tackling the problem with the right funding.”
I realize I'm getting older and that I've spent the last 14 years raising children — specifically, boys. I don't expect to fully understand the Kardashians, One Direction, or earrings that make large, open holes in people's ears.

We were likely influenced to make safe driving decisions due to recent tragic events in our community and by the dramatic scenes our classmates witnessed in our recent Mock Crash Assembly.
