VA-funded program helps veterans secure housing

Gilbert Leon had lost his job, he was about to lose his house and his life started to crumble. The Vietnam War-era veteran considered suicide a viable option. “I didn’t know what I was going to do or where I was going to go,” Leon, 69, said. “My wife asked: Why are you letting this happen? You’re supposed to take care of me.”

Goodwill’s IT boss named achiever of year

When Chad Christman was 4 months old, he went for a drive with his parents. The year was 1980, and Christman was sitting in his mom’s lap in the front seat of the car. His brothers were in the back. At an intersection just off East Sprague Avenue, the vehicle was hit so forcefully by another vehicle that Christman went airborne, flying out of the car. Police said the accident was so violent and the cars so mangled, it looked like it had happened on the freeway. “At the time there were no seat belt laws or car seat laws, so it wasn’t unusual that I sat in my mom’s lap,” said Christman. The rest of the family escaped with bumps and bruises – but Christman was badly injured.
