Kellis Booth writes:
We're interested in the answer. We had hoped it was a mistake or misunderstanding but sure enough we had to load our girls in the car and go to McDonalds for the restroom. For the past three years at the market it's been very convenient to simply go across the street. --Kellis Booth

A wish for Coach Oliver's Spring Day of Service

I have a wish for Coach Chris Oliver's football team for their May 1, 2019 LWC Football Spring Service Day. Have you wished yet? Here's what's to be done:

- Subject line needs to say: "Service Day" - Brief description: Getting plastic debris out of the Town Branch.
- Project location: start at corner of Montgomery and Hurt Street and follow the stream as it parallels Hurt Street, then veers off across the Arnold acres and the Waggener acre, to stop at Lynn's Service Center acres, where the stream goes under Jamestown Street. The stream goes on but I haven't personally checked the condition from there.
- Materials needed: garbage bags (City and County will provide)
- Name and contact phone number of requester: Linda Waggener, lindawaggener@gmail.com
- Send by email to lindseywilsonfootball@gmail.com.

Coach Oliver says, "we are going to take requests via email for the next week, and then organize and communicate back regarding what we can fit into our schedule that day. It's possible that we won't be able to cover every project, but we'll see how it goes after the requests come in."

A message shared by Bro. John Chowning, Senior Pastor, Saloma Baptist Church

National Dog Bite Prevention Week April 14-20, 2019


A Letter to the Editor from Randal Murrell, Postmaster, Columbia KY, and Joey Topping, City Letter Carrier/NALC Union Steward, Columbia KY

Did anyone bite you at work today? On average, nearly 15 mail carriers per day will say, "Yes."

Postal Service officials report that in 2018, 5,714 letter carriers experienced dog bites or dog attacks. With deliveries every day, including Sundays and holidays, carriers continue to experience dog bites in urban, suburban and rural settings.

Dog attacks and bites are 100 percent preventable when dog owners remain vigilant and properly restrain their dogs.

To ensure mail carriers' safety, dog owners must securely lock their dog in another room until a delivery exchange is done. If outside, dogs must be leashed at a distance from the mailbox.
