Hucks: Facebook SOS Rouses CdA

Coeur d’Alene Councilman Mike Kennedy appreciates Mark Zuckerberg’s online brainchild more than ever. On Wednesday, Mike issued this Facebook SOS: “Anybody have a lightly used pair of crutches for use by, say, an 11-year-old ballerina and soccer player with a newly torn ligament in her foot? I don’t think I’ll make the ‘crutch store’ before they close.” Seems Mike’s daughter, Maggie, landed a jump wrong during ballet practice. Responded Carrie Cook, a Coeur d’Alene resident who attended a Texas university like Mike: “I have some used recently by a 10-year old. … I can set them on my front porch for you to swing by and grab them.” By the time the thread had played out with 24 comments, many of us Facebook friends of Mike had warm fuzzies for the good-neighborliness found online in Lake City/DFO, Huckleberries Online. More here.
