Benefit Held For 13 Year-Old Lexington Girl

A special benefit was held Friday night to raise money for a 13-year old Lexington girl who suffers from a rare spinal condition.
Amber Rayburn has transverse myelitis. The condition left her paralyzed from the waste down in August. Amber has been undergoing therapy at Cardinal Hill, but she still needs special treatment out of state; which will require more money than the family's insurance can provide.
If you want to help, donations can be made at any Lexington Central Bank location for the Amber Rayburn fund.

    To Joanne: Were your parents or grandparents anchor babies? If not, how you got to California? And about learning Spanish. It is not a bad idea, and please, would you please learn English as well? Just take a look of what you wrote: "their's very little jobs out their to apply for" the right sentence would be: There are, not their's and at the end, you whould write: out there. That is why many people don't find jobs. They do not speak any language, not Spanish, not even English. That is really sad. And they still dare to critizice undocumented people who want to work and learn. Shame on you. Stop complaining, begin learning and working.

    Yes, I know they get free care at hospitals. My daughter works at a hospital here. And the pregnant Illegals call up around midnight and say their bleeding and the hospital sends out a free ambulance to pick them up. It's all free tests and hospital care and the baby is documented into our system. An anchor baby. Go check out the waiting rooms at any hospital. And our hospitals are closing down due to lack of funds. And the newspapers say our own people are too lazy to work...well, their's very little jobs out their to apply for. Businesses are failing..home forclosers...constuction trade taken over by the illegals. Our banks and local newspaper is taken over by the Mexicans. They get one foothold into a job...and then all their relatives get on. Our court house is paying thousands of dollars for Spanish interputures. You can't get a teaching job around here unless you speak Spanish. The new teachers come in at a higher pay scale then the old ones because they know Spanish.

    We have whole cities filled with illegals here in Southern Calif.. And we keep getting more and more illegals here. Santa Paula, Fillmore, Oxnard, Ventura are just full of them and 100's of them stand on street cornors in Oxnard, Ca. waiting for someone to pick them up for odd jobs. They just stand there all day long in groups and no one does anything about it. They say that their aren't any it. And the police don't want to mess with the problem because if they do...they might lose their jobs, have to go to court or be sued. These protesters agg the police one...darning them to TOUCH them....and say...see...I have witnesses!!!!They have their RIGHTS!!!!It's completely gotten out of hand and no one is doing anything. They say that their taking their land back. Well in the 14 hundreds it was the Spanish that struck their flags into this land....not the Mexican's. The Mexican's were run off by the Spanish grant owners. Vistit Santa Paula and see the Mex flags.
