A Christmas wish comes true

Cystic fibrosis patient Christy Jarrett smiles as Wayne Klein, left, Harrah’s Casino support systems specialist, and William Bobb, technical systems supervisor, install a game on her new computer Tuesday. Harrah’s gave Jarrett the computer after a news story last week told of efforts by friends and family to raise enough money through donations to buy the homebound woman a computer so she would have increased access to the outside world. The money donated for her Christmas wish by owners and customers of Check Cashers and More, where her mother works, will be given to Jarrett. (The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
