Identity theft is real, get protected

in

Something happened to me recently that I would like to share with everyone concerning identity theft.
I received a letter from Vantage Healthcare that I had been dropped from their coverage of Medicare because I had moved to Longview, Wash. What a shock!
I have been living in Marion for more than 20 years — my clothes are still in the closet and my car is under the carport. As many of you know I was born and raised in the state of Washington in a town about the size of Marion, Skamokawa, about the same distance to Longview as Marion is from Monroe.

Ruston Elementary

Community lends hand to RES

A Ruston Elementary School teacher will be getting more tools to help her students learn math and science concepts thanks to those who donated to her DonorsChoose.org project, including The Horace Mann Companies whose $365 donation completed her project.
Getting to touch parts of the skeleton, see a model skull and work with magnets in their hands helps students experience science and math concepts beyond the textbook and helps them better retain the information learned.
