Class of '83 seeking kidney for NLS classmate


NEW LONDON -- Ever since they were little girls, Staci Gjerde and Naomi Powers-Baker have looked out for each other.

They've been "family friends forever," said Powers-Baker.

The 1983 graduates of New London-Spicer High School were also part of a small, tight-knit class that has continued to be close through the years.

Now 46 years old, Gjerde needs her friends and her classmates more than ever.
