For years, it has been a point of pride within Roseburg’s business community to raise $100,000 through the annual duck race to fight child abuse in the community. This year was no different, except of course this year IS different if you’re talking money.
At the same time, based on what I’m hearing around here, this isn’t an either/or situation.
