Read It in the Morning Paper

Today’s morning paper introduced readers to some interesting folks:

Randall Edwards, a former U.S. Navy sailor who nearly perished in a Japanese POW camp during WWII and is now celebrating his 100th birthday.

Lisa Marini, a teacher moving from McKeel Academy to Lakeland High School whose teaching about the WWII Holocaust was honored and strengthened through a scholarship to an international symposium at Columbia University.

Apollo Allison, 10, who learned how hard firefighters work at a camp that doubles as a recruitment tool for the Lakeland Fire Department.
