$1500 Donation to the Every 15-Minutes Program

State funding for the Death every 15-minutes program,  the live demonstration of the consequences of teen drinking and driving, shown Thursday and today (Friday) was cut drastically due to the state budget deficit and subsequent cuts. CHP Officer Marc Morrison says Nevada Union high school had to commit to a great deal of fundraising to keep the program going. Even with such efforts, the school had fallen sadly short of its goal to cover the costs.

That message got to the ear of President and founder of the Nevada county Law Enforcement and Fire Protection council Bill Drown who headed over to the school to present them with a check for $15 hundred dollars.
