Area residents reach out to Newtown families

Childhood friends Leslie Skinner and Katie Moran reunited in Sandusky recently to provide some comfort for a Connecticut community in pain.

Skinner, a 2003 Huron High graduate, and Moran, a 2002 St Mary's graduate, sacrificed some rare free time during the holidays to volunteer for a project at Sandusky's First Presbyterian Church, at Jackson and West Washington streets.

They participated in a comfort pillow project that frequently attracts volunteers in the church. After seeing the struggles of Newtown, Conn., residents in recent weeks, church members decided those mourning the brutal deaths at Sandy Hook Elementary School needed an abundance of relief.

Tell 'em to contact MTV and the Jersey Shore People. Just down the road.

Ridiculous comment - karma is coming your way

Says you.

"Snooki, Mike and Pauly are each paid $150,000 per episode, and every season has roughly 12 episodes, which gives them each an estimated grand total of $1.8 million dollars per season."

Great response...... Compounding your ability to make ridiculous comments

Quit riding my butt 1969. What comfort is a pillow going to do for a son or daughter that is gone and buried? Get a grip. And go learn what Karma actually means.

When our daughter passed away, someone made us a memory quilt and it means so much to us.

The kind folks in this article are doing something special and your comments only serve to diminish that

Then, I apologize to you for that. I am sorry for your loss. I know what loss is like as well as you do. I just think it's a false way to make someone feel good. Yeah, someone cares for a few minutes and you never hear from them again.
