Cobain tribute spawns “Jada Project” to feed Aberdeen students

As Aberdeen and Hoquiam cities both prepare to celebrate their Nirvana heritage, the compassion of a 9 year old helped to bring a shunned tribute back into the light. Sculptor Randi Hubbard tells us after 19 years in her muffler shop, a statue of Kurt Cobain will soon be loaned to the Aberdeen Museum of History “Well my granddaughter was sitting there and she says ‘grandma we can sell t-shirts because I have a project in mind’.” Jada helped Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson talk Hubbard into loaning the 600-pound statue to the museum as part of their Kurt Cobain display. Hubbard said they also they plan to sell t-shirts and photos, with the proceeds to be split between the museum, and the Jada Project. Jada tells KBKW “I thought of this idea because I’ve seen kids like on the TV that have been starving and kids that don’t get to eat need to get sack lunches on Saturday and Sunday.” The Jada Project will work with Aberdeen schools to send sack lunches home with kids that might not eat lunch on the weekends otherwise.

76 Washington consumers receive checks for misleading vehicle service contracts, thousands more may be eligible

SEATTLE — Attorney General Bob Ferguson joined three other state attorneys general today in announcing that approximately 19,000 consumers nationwide will share more than $9.3 million to compensate them for their problems with U.S. Fidelis, a now-defunct dealer of vehicle service contracts. Checks are going in the mail today for those who filed a claim.

A vehicle service contract provides protection against unexpected or costly vehicle repairs. 

“Consumers received a bad deal from U.S Fidelis,” said Ferguson. “My office will go after businesses that mislead consumers and don’t play by the rules.”

U.S. Fidelis deceptively marketed and sold vehicle service contracts for itself and other businesses. It also operated under the name of National Auto Warranty Services and Dealer Services. U.S. Fidelis filed bankruptcy in March 2010.
