The charitable, humanitarian organization, The Duke City Darlins has been going and growing strong in our community over the past several years coming to the aid of local individuals and groups, raising money and lending immeasurable support to people, issues and causes in need.

The beloved Darlins have suffered a tragic and senseless loss. Along with the friends and family of Kirsten Darlin Landeau and her nephew, Dillon Cearfoss, the group now mourn their passing.

The Darlins have set up a fund at Bank of the West for Kirsten Darlin and Dillon Cearfoss. If you would like to donate to help with funeral costs and family expenses please contact Bank of the West for the Kirsten and Dillon account, number 028363705. Money raised goes directly to the family.

And finally Your Sindicator’s own personal Documentary/Commentary:

In war torn Europe when Germany was bombing the UK on October 9th, 1940, Peace, Love and Rock & Roll had yet to be imagined – one of the greatest artists and activists of our time, JOHN LENNON was born.

Happy Birthday John Lennon who would’ve been 70 years old tomorrow if not for an act of violence…just goes to show we still have a long way to go to champion his #1 cause – PEACE!
