- KC Coultrup has a line on a 50’ slip at Gangway 31 next to the LYBC.
He is looking for someone with a boat to either sublet or to go into a short-term partnership with. The slip is available now, but he needs to act on it shortly if he is to keep control of the slip. His long-term goal is to keep the slip and sublet it for 2 to 3 years until he can find a boat he would like to purchase. If interested contact KC 562 884-5480 firstname.lastname@example.org

Good Cheer Report:
- Call to Action
As you may know Mike Brown has been in the hospital for 4 months. He has faced many challenges and has come back from the brink a couple to times. He now is out of respiratory ICU and continues an amazing comeback. He now is breathing on his own, eating solid food and is learning to walk once again. However, his body only beginning to now make red blood cells slowly. He has had transfusions to help with his recovery but will need some more transfusions to get his red blood cell count to where he can carry enough oxygen to aid in his rehabilitation.
Currently blood banks across the United States have exceptionally low inventories. If possible and you can donate thru your local blood bank or Red Cross, you can do an in-kind donation in Mike Browns name. You will have to state that is what you would like to do and reference Mike Brown at Kindred Hospital in Westminster Ca.
