Sam Sellie won't let prosthetic leg slow him down
This past April, Sam Sellie, 21, went in for a routine heart surgery to have a leaky aortic valve replaced. The next day, he went into cardiac arrest and ended up back on the operating table. He spent the next two weeks in a medically-induced coma with a machine supporting his heart and lungs.
When he woke up in a hospital bed, he was completely unaware of what his close friends and family already knew: his heart had been saved, but his left leg had been amputated below the knee.

District 622 approves max levy

Levy would remain flat if referendums fail this fall
