Hills Flat Lumber personnel

for helping Jerry

I want to take this opportunity to thank Rick, Dan and all of the other great guys at Hills Flat Lumber. I routinely transport a gentleman who has a disability to Hills Flat for materials for his projects. Jerry’s purchases are rarely large and often somewhat time consuming. I am always impressed and appreciate the respect, kindness and patience that is extended to him by all of the staff we have encountered.

On behalf of Jerry, thanks and best wishes for continued success and a blessed holiday season and new year.

‘Citizen angels’ who guided

drivers down Lake Vera Road

I extend my thanks and gratitude to the self-organized citizen traffic controllers who guided me and many others down Lake Vera Road during Thursday night’s snowstorm. I am grateful that you were there to help and you did a great job! And to the people who yelled and cursed at them and others trying to drive slowly and safely, you need to get down on your knees and thank the good Lord above and our “citizen angels” that you are alive, you didn’t kill anyone, and that your pristine new SUVs don’t need expensive body work.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
