Hot Shots Happy to Help

- Shane Horton, right, leader of the Haines Hot Shots student shooting club, talks about the group at Thursday's presentation of grants by the Chilkat Valley Community Foundation at the library. The club received $1,000 in operational support from the local foundation. Horton, flanked by shooters Joseph Rossman and Dawson and Caleb Holm, explained that club members offer service work in appreciation for community support they receive. At Thursday's event, foundation officials distributed checks totaling $18,000 to 14 nonprofits.
