In this weeks edition:

Finally done…
Well, I finally made it… the boats are all tucked away for the winter. This last hitch found Jamie, Jeanine and I at the storage area last Sunday afternoon. Jeanine packed up most of the stuff she didn’t want to leave for the winter. I packed up all my tools and other valuable objects that I may need this winter. You know you can never have too many zip ties in the garage. Jamie and I winterized the water system and he secured the “stuff” that lives on the top of my boat and a few other items in the heavy lifting category. We then moved on to his boat which was quite easy by comparison. At any rate… the best part is, it’s done!

Veterans Day…
Since you are reading this on whatever your regular schedule is, you probably know we worked on Veterans Day. I really don’t mind the work. I have complained frequently in this space about how difficult holidays are to deal with in our production schedule. And, now with two papers, it’s even worse. What I do mind is that I didn’t get to enjoy the Veterans’ Day activities. However, be sure that I honor our veterans on this special day. In fact, like Brent Boggs so often says… we should honor veterans every day not just once a year.

A new service…

You will note from the ad on the adjacent page that we have taken on a new venture. This will most certainly not be a profit center for our company but I truly hope it will be a service to our community. We were approached a few weeks ago by the fine people at Peter Pan Cleaners in Charleston. They were looking for a pickup and drop-off point in Braxton County. After a brief discussion we agreed to give it a try. It may be fitting since one of the first paying jobs I had after Jeanine and I got married was running a dry cleaning route for Bill Ramsey at the ole Gassaway Cleaners.
