LAUREL — To the four organizations that teamed up to host a Wednesday night program about the costs of underage drinking. As Kenosha County Deputy District Attorney Mike Graveley noted, “There is a huge correlation between the early use of alcohol and huge addictive problems in their future.” This is something good to keep in mind in a community that is battling with addiction on multiple fronts, from alcohol to opiates. The program was organized by the Hope Council, the Concerned Citizens Coalition, Lord of Life Lutheran Church and Kenosha Public Library.
Their fans know John and Korey Cooper of Kenosha as two members of the high energy Christian rock band Skillet — make that Christian hard rock band.
But beyond their show biz personas, the Coopers, married 19 years, share the same kinds of concerns other parents do for their children. For them, that includes making sure Alexandria, 13, and Xavier, 11, who have toured with the band since infancy, get a good education.
