Nichole Kast knows her son has had a rough day when he heads for his punching bag.La Grande middle schooler Kyler White has one in his room, Kast says. “You can hear him,” she says. “He’ll work out his aggression that way.”

Kast said Kyler’s problems extend past aggression, though. Last month, the 13-year-old seventh-grader was hit in the back by a 15-year-old student in what Kast considers an ongoing problem of bullying at LMS.

John Lamoreau, a noted collector of Titanic memorabilia, has a weighty new problem. It is a dilemma he is ecstatic to have.

Lamoreau’s long wait for a coveted artifact ended Sunday, when a crate containing a large bronze plaque honoring Dr. William Francis Norman O’Loughlin, one of the heroes of the Titanic, which sank in the Atlantic on April 15, 1912, arrived on his doorstep. The plaque is one Lamoreau and other Titanic collectors have been searching years for.
