  • Resident thanks carriers for braving bad weather

    Editor: I just want to publicly thank our mail carriers for their efforts to deliver the mail in such treacherous conditions last month.  I could not get out for three days and yet our carrier, Lori, somehow managed to deliver our mail.

I remember he was angry one time because our high school administrators were going to cancel a trip for students to compete in the regional Science Fair.
