LAUREL: To Agnes Wilcox, who decided for her 80th birthday that friends should donate to the Shalom Center rather than give her any gifts. Friends stepped up, and her family presented the Shalom Center with $800 in cash and another $400 to $500 of food and nonperishable food donations. “When you reach my age, you don’t need anything,” she said. “It was fun, and it turned out more than I expected.”

DART: We regularly write about scams to alert readers, and that was the case again when Sen. Bob Wirch, D-Somers, alerted us to a phone scam known as “spoofing.” The difference here was how personal the scam was — it showed that the “spoofed” call came from his own phone number. “This is just crazy,” Wirch said. “and it’s why I have co-sponsored legislation to make spoofing illegal.”

LAUREL: To Na’Kia Hughes, a freshman at Hampton (Va.) University, who was named the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha’s Youth of the Year at last weekend’s Young at Heart Gala. The club has been a part of Hughes’ life since she was 12. “In fifth grade, I knew I wanted to be so much, but I didn’t have the tools,” said the Harborside Academy graduate whose goal is to become an orthopedic surgeon. “I’m going to miss my club.”
