Many thanks for help, support of Camp Prov day camp

As the president of the Providence General Children’s Association, I have the honor of representing more than 300 guild members and hundreds of other volunteers who work year-round to raise money to support the health care needs of children in our community. One of the things we are extremely proud of is our involvement in Camp Prov, a day camp for children with special needs and their siblings.

As the last camp supply is packed away for the year, and the Camp Prov banner is lowered at Forest Park, I want to express my gratitude to our volunteers and donors for helping make the camp a spectacular success. Thanks to the support of a generous community, amazing staff and incredible volunteers, nearly 400 children experienced Camp Prov this year.

I wish I could bottle the laughter and share the sunny summer smiles of the children in attendance to share with each of you. I hope my heartfelt thank you will suffice.

Mary Lou Finley, president

Work should begin now to begin replacing what four dams on the Snake River provide.

Joe Kennedy, a former assistant football coach at Bremerton High School in Bremerton, Wash., poses for a photo March 9, 2022, at the school's football field. After losing his coaching job for refusing to stop kneeling in prayer with players and spectators on the field immediately after football games, Kennedy will take his arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, April 25, 2022, saying the Bremerton School District violated his First Amendment rights by refusing to let him continue praying at midfield after games.

Editorial: Court majority weakens church, state separation

The Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision does more to hurt religious liberty than protect a coach’s prayer.
