    We would like to say “thank you” to everyone who participated in the Christmas in August Poker Run on Sunday, Aug. 18.

  • Mail carrier earns praise for concern

    Editor:

    On Saturday morning. I was busy and had not taken in my newspapers.

    The mail carrier, Jeanne Rider, noticed this and also that I had not taken in my mail for a couple of days. She took the time to check on my welfare.

But while Snowden recently received temporary asylum in Russia, ordinary Americans have little respite.
