Excuse me, are you listening? 13-16


Dear Readers,
It always warms my heart when I get feedback from our readers.  Imagine what it is like in my neck of the woods.  I know that the newspaper moves quickly, however, I do not know each person who reads it.  It is odd in that kind of way.  When someone calls, emails or writes me a letter I am always intrigued.  When someone is waiting at the newspaper box for the delivery or in a waiting room reading the newspaper, I always start smiling.  It makes me feel connected, as I am now alone typing tucked away in a quiet corner of my office.
