This article is about my family. Gregory is my son. I want to be clear, in my story to the reporter, Karah-Leigh, I called Asperger's ONE of several on the spectrum of Autism Spectrum Disorders. I also said that it's sometimes referred to High-Functioning Autism. Those two sentences seem to have gotten a bit mixed up in the final version. And yes, I do know that as of next year that it will no longer be referred to as Asperger's. For the purposes of this article, though, I didn't think it was important to get into the changes in terminology. To our family, it doesn't matter what the experts want to change it to, as long as our son is happy and has the support he needs. The point of the article, which I think most realize, is to let everyone know what a difference Keira has made in our lives and in the life of our son Gregory. A few misspellings, while a bit irritating, are not a big deal to me.
Thanks for the positive comments! And thanks for telling our story Karah-Leigh!posted @ Friday, November 23, 2012 - 09:55

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
