Hall family appreciates the thoughtfulness

Carol Hall has expressed heartfelt thanks to everyone who showed the Hall family compassion and gave so much understanding in their recent loss of Hial Hall III. Special thanks go to the hospice girls, the local emergency squads, to neighbors for trays of food, and to all who sent cards and prayed for the family, she said. Everything was very much appreciated.

Useful coupons should be resumed

A reader this week called in the gripe that the Post-Star Sunday newspapers which once carried much-needed coupons for all careful shoppers, are not very helpful anymore - unless you can eat make up, eye shadow, pet foods, razors, shampoo, hair coloring, skin-care lotion, and various cleaners, etc. We used to get coupons for meats, vegetables, canned goods and even ice cream. The person calling in the gripe noted while folks with computers at home can download extra coupons, those who do not have access to computers are missing out. We want the newspaper coupons back!
