Front Porch: Marathon runner to help raise funds for victims

Drive to help victims
Arlington's Haller Middle School Assistant Principal Faye Britt had finished the Boston Marathon on Monday when the bombs exploded. Now she is raising money to help the victims of the attack.
Britt plans to donate to The One Fund Boston, giving $1 for each of her students who runs and wears the marathon's blue and gold colors on Monday during a lunchtime fundraiser, part of the national effort called Run for Boston. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino announced the formation of The One Fund Boston to help the people most affected by the tragic events on April 15.
Britt said she planned to make a contribution to the fund and then thought it would be an opportunity for students to show their support as well.

Author speaks: Meet children's book author Samantha Vamos at 10 a.m. Monday at the Mukilteo Library, 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd., to celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day). The program is free. For more information, call 425-493-8202.

Nimitz update: The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, with its air wing and strike group, is headed to its Western Pacific deployment.
"This fine warship and its outstanding crew will have the opportunity to sail to the Western Pacific and operate in support of our nation's ongoing efforts to ensure maritime security," said Capt. Jeff S. Ruth, Nimitz's commanding officer, in a statement from the Navy.
Another Everett-based ship, the guided-missile destroyer USS Momsen is scheduled to leave Naval Station Everett on Monday, also heading to the Western Pacific.
While deployed, Momsen is scheduled to participate in a series of exercises conducted with the naval and armed forces of participating southeastern Asian countries.
