IN THE NEWS
From Russia with love     by Linda Hottum White

Early in February I had the opportunity to be a part of a small delegation form Winston-
Salem North Carolina to visit Russia. The purpose of the trip was an international
collegiate exchange conference. Yes it was COLD! The Russians were wonderful hosts
and welcomed us with open arms. The details (some best left unwritten) are too
numerous to communicate.
