How can you say no to a cute lil’ baby?

You can’t.

Wolf Nation has a chance to help some of its own by joining a meal train for Joe and Reghan (Campbell) Rojas as they celebrate a happy ending to a dangerous situation.

The Coupeville grads, who both hail from families with deep local roots, have added a third son to the clan, but his arrival came with unexpected difficulty.

Reghan experienced a uterine rupture during labor, and the complications caused by that kept their newest child in the intensive care unit for a week.

To the delight of all, lil’ Bear Manuel Rojas got stronger with each day and is now home with his parents and two older brothers.

Bear, who checked in at 21 inches and a healthy nine pounds, eight ounces, gets his middle name from grandpa Manny Rojas, who played multiple sports for CHS back in the day.

Coupeville High School Class of 2021 moms have created a meal train to help the family affected by a fatal car accident earlier this week.

Joey Glendenning, 44, mother of Wolf softball player Lacy McCraw-Shirron, passed away Wednesday from injuries sustained in a head-on collision on Highway 20 near Winterhawk Lane.

The meal train is being spearheaded by Michelle Cernick.

“It’s time for the community to come together and do what we do best, which is help each other out when we need it the most,” she said. “Right now Lacy could use some love and support from her senior class.

“Please do what you can to help her family. They don’t have any allergies and will eat anything that you bring them. They are not picky, just grateful for anything right now.”

Coupeville High School coaches have banded together to support the family of Wolf head football coach Marcus Carr, and we can all help.

Carr’s wife, Deborah, was in a bad car accident coming home from work Mar. 23, and has had to have extensive surgeries.

While she is recovering from her injuries, others are stepping up to provide meals for the family of six.

CHS cheer coach BreAnna Boon, using the Meal Train web site, has set up an easy way for people to sign up to provide meals, or purchase gift cards which can be used for food.

Since they joined Wolf Nation a year ago, the Carr family has had a huge impact on the CHS football program and local student/athletes.

Time for a little payback.

The Cernick family has contributed greatly to keep youth soccer going strong in Coupeville, with parents Reese and Michelle working as both coaches and league administrators.

The family also owns and operates Whidbey Pest Control, while children Chris, Autumn and Aurora are all current students at Coupeville High School.

A recent health scare landed Reese in the hospital for a week-plus, as doctors dealt with a potential bleed in his brain.

While he’s back home, and droppin’ hot memes on Facebook on a regular basis, he’s still very much in recovery mode and has not been able to return to work.

As the Cernick family works its way back, one way we can all help is by getting on the meal train started by family friend Lori Taylor.

Whether you’re up to contributing food, or can help out with gift cards to grocery stores such as Red Apple Prairie Center or Safeway, everything helps.
