Sam Dotson chosen Grand Marshal
July 08, 2014 06:58 pm

Relay for Life Grand Marshal Sam Dotson holds his grandson Max Armstrong while his granddaughters Emmy Armstrong, left, and Dani Dotson play in the tree.

Retired Brookings police officer Sam Dotson has walked 270 miles around the Brookings-Harbor High School track in the 11 years he has been involved with Relay for Life.

Each year, he walked one mile for each year his wife, Rita, was a cancer survivor. In 2011, he got up to 34 miles in one night — but then later that year Dotson was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Now that he has been added to the list of survivors, and because of his contribution to Relay for Life, Dotson has been chosen the 2014 Relay for Life grand marshal.

A place where time slows down

Browsers on Trader’s Row are reflected in a mirror at one of the tents selling goods.

David Kahn doesn’t need matches to have a fire going in less than 10 seconds.

Kahn, also known as Doc, grasped the steel striker in his right hand and let fly with his left, raining sparks on char cloth and shredded hemp. When the cloth began to smolder, Kahn put the fiber to his lips and blew smoke.
