DRY HOLLOW Elementary School second grader Chase Wetherell reads to librarian Terrie Woodward, affectionately known as “Mrs. Woody,” on Monday, March 2. Asked why Mrs. Woody was dressed in a Cat in the Hat costume, Wetherell answered, “I know: Dr. Seuss’s birthday and wacky day.” She bought the costume online 20 years ago and has faithfully worn it every year on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which is celebrated as Read Across America Day. For all these years she’s also faithfully read to students her favorite Dr. Seuss book, “Horton Hatches the Egg.”

To the editor: My name is Faith Lindley and I am a sixth grade teacher in South Wasco.
