  • Glauber's targets sporting market

That actually should reflect the number of guns in stock day-to-day at the store. It was an error made during editing, and we apologize for any inconvenience the error may have caused.)

  • Thanks to community volunteers

    To the editor,

    Thank you to everyone in the community who gave time, energy and resources to help clean up the aftermath of last Sunday’s wind storm.

    From the time the storm began in the early afternoon until well into the night and the following morning, county residents were there, clearing trees and debris from roadways and participating in impromptu traffic control while the removal took place. Throughout the day, it was common to see the residents of our county exiting vehicles to saw a path through fallen limbs, making travel safer for everyone.
