To life!

The annual Relay For Life, a fundraiser for cancer research, is being held tomorrow at Dietz Stadium here in Kingston. My wife, having lost her mother to cancer 14 months ago, is particpating, along with our son. And a team from the Freeman will be there to honor the memory of Hallie Arnold, a former Freeman reporter, Ulster County tourism director and all-around wonderful human being who died of cancer last summer at the far-too-young age of 40. Both of these women are deeply missed by the people who knew and loved them. Please keep them -- and all others who have battled this awful disease -- in your thoughts. And thanks, in advance, to all the people heading out to the stadium tomorrow (probably in the rain) in the effort to make a difference.
