Stories about alcoholism

 
Seven-year-old David Howlett of Indian Township Passamaquoddy Reservation looks up to introduce himself to Levi Horn, who signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears NFL football team before the lockout idled the players. Horn, who is 24, 6 feet 7 inches tall and 315 pounds, is of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe and hails from Spokane, Washington. He was at Indian Township to inspire the Passamaquoddy children, part of a new strategy by Chief Joseph Socabasin to counteract alcohol and drug use and the tribe's 60 percent unemployment rate. "I'm a football player too," Howlett told Horn.
