OT: Front pages

Updated re CBC
As decades of front pages go, this one is the first with a story about a family member and we couldn't be more proud of the "community" in community newspapering.

It tells the fundraising story of a niece, Shannon, and her six-year-old daughter, Chelsea, as they count down the days to a June trip from Nova Scotia to California for Chelsea's multiple operations on a very rare brain disorder.

It is called arteriovenous malformation (AVM).  

The community is in the middle of a hectic fundraising drive and local media, including the Bridgewater Progress-Bulletin and  its online SouthShoreNow.ca are very supportive.

We have never doubted the power of the community press when it comes to fundraising events, but today's front page coverage for a niece and her daughter reaches a new plateau.

News of the community effort spread across the province with a Halifax CBC report Thursday.
