It started with an ice chest under a pavilion at Bluegrass Park and just keeps getting cooler. Classmates of an 8-year-old burn victim raised a jar full of cash selling Popsicles at the park on Wednesday. After hearing about the fundraiser organized by the Sorensen Elementary students, Java on Sherman volunteered to donate additional Popsicles so students can continue the fundraiser during Friday's Fourth of July Parade. Students will be selling Popsicles at both of Java's locations in downtown Coeur d'Alene. "Please help," said Sorensen third-grader Luke Sharon. "We're selling Otter Pops to get money for the people that got hurt and got burned"/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
