Recently, two experiences have caused me to reflect on the Vietnam War.  In May, my husband and I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.  Monday, May 28, chairs in the area in front of the wall sat empty awaiting the arrival of dignitaries for the Memorial Day service where President Obama gave his address. In addition to honoring Vietnam veterans in his speech, he set aside May 28 - Nov. 11 of this year to honor those who gave their lives to fight in this war, one of the most controversial wars of the 20th century.

Ever since she was a young girl, Samantha Lawrence knew she would be involved in the sciences. In fifth grade, her science teacher decided to have the class participate in a science fair. Having helped her parents build their home in Morgan, she had always wondered why nails turned orange in exposed stud walls, so she decided to investigate that phenomenon for her science fair project.  Through that project she discovered corrosion and has been fascinated by the processes and mitigation of corrosion from then on.  Samantha continued to nurture these interests and eventually graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. She is currently a candidate for a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Washington State University.

Dr. Vern Kilbourn is a long time resident of Morgan and Morgan’s first Chiropractor. He was the first Chiropractor to ever be issued a business liscence in Morgan County. He is a 2nd generation chiropractor in his family, following in the footsteps of his grandfather Ozias (nicknamed “Banz”) to the community. His grandfather who was a graduate of Palmer Chiropractic School in Davenport Iowa, had finished his graduate degree, but was not allowed to practice because he didn’t have a high school diploma, and the state required a high school diploma to practice, yet he already received his doctorate degree. His grandfather was not allowed to be “grandfathered” into the practice, and not allowed to charge for his services, even after he had obtained a doctorate degree. His grandfather practiced for free in the community and offered many hours of unpaid service to help others.
