MILLSAP MATTERS: MYA honors youth hoopsters


Many people have been wondering how Raine Newby, the Millsap student who was critically burned more than two years ago, is getting along. The answer is he is doing well and getting better all the time. He has had 22 surgeries so far with great progress being made. This young man has not let the accident get in the way of participating in life. He has been featured hunting deer on an episode of TNT Outdoor Explosion, attended World Burn Conferences in other states and was elected president of his sophomore class. He is riding horses and involved in giving back at Parkland Burn Center. He is positive, amazing and strives every day to get better. His family asks for continued prayer for Raine. What a miracle his journey has been and continues to be. Keep going, Raine.

Millsap Veterinary Clinic is the gold sponsor for the Second Annual C.A.R.E. 5k/10k and 1 Mile Fun Run which will take place at Gordon ISD (112 Rusk Street, Gordon). C.A.R.E. stands for Community Animal Rescue Effort and the organization encompasses Gordon, Lake Palo Pinto, Mingus, Thurber and Strawn.

The group does multifaceted work for animals that need help. All ages, plus furry family members, are welcome to the event which will take place April 12 beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Besides the run, there will be a quilt raffle, live music and a farmers’ market.

For info email Millsap Veterinary Clinic is to be applauded for their ongoing help to this organization. C.A.R.E. members say they could not continue the effort with them. Well wishes on the fundraiser and thanks to C.A.R.E. for meeting a big need.

Thanks for reading!
