The river of bad news and poor policy-making by public officials rarely slows down, but now and then comes a story that helps renew the spirit.
Compassionate strangers from across the country have banded together and donated more than $17,000 to support a handicapped Cary boy who had his cash stolen Thursday when he was raising money for a wheelchair basketball event.
A flood of donations from $5 to $500 have poured in since Friday to help 12-year-old Nolan Turner bring the experience of playing wheelchair basketball to Briarcliff Elementary School. More than 450 people have donated nearly $18,000, far beyond Nolan’s original goal of $1000.
