Five years ago on the 10th of December Jamie Warren got a new chance at life through a double lung transplant. Warren was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. At 28 she was told she only had 6 months to live and deemed an unfit candidate for the transplant until her lungs had just about taken their last breath. With her lungs functioning at only 11 percent her husband made the decision to put her on a ventilator while the doctors held an emergency meeting to decide her fate. Three days later, Warren was granted a miracle.
When students from Joe Ingersoll's AP government class at Aberdeen High School entered the city council chambers on Tuesday, Gov. Butch Otter immediately acknowledged them.
During a lull in taking questions from the audience at Aberdeen's Capital for a Day, he encouraged them to ask their own.
Eventually Carl, one of the students, asked about what tax liabilities and benefits he could receive if he started his own landscaping business.
