“THE CLERKS IN LEONARDS ARE SO NICE!”
I stood in line at Leonards Loyalton February 10th behind a young man who was purchasing a bouquet of roses. Clerk Cindy praised his purchase and inquired who the flowers were for. “My girlfriend,” he boasted. Cindy talked about what a lucky girl she was and made small talk, engaging the young man. Cindy rang up the purchase, handed over the receipt, wished him well and the boy left.
I moved to the check out just as the boy ran back into the store, holding one rose and presenting it to Cindy, who was extremely pleased and stated she’d take it home. She then added she hoped the girlfriend wouldn’t notice one rose short.

A NEW YEAR AND NEW POSTAL
RATES. Local newspaper postal rates rose an average of 7.6% and outside county rates by 4%.
USPS has provided no explanation for increasing Within County Prices at a higher rate than Outside County mail, according to National Newspaper Association (NNA).
This follows a 7% increase in July 2022.
NNA incoming chair John Galer said, “Price increases of this magnitude will hurt newspapers as well as the Postal Service. This is not the time to drive business away if the Postmaster General’s goal is to fill his mail trucks and his mailbags.”
Postal Advocate states the January increase is, “The third time in 17 months with some of the largest increases in history and at significantly higher rates than inflation. We can expect these rate spikes to continue as the USPS® has stated that two increases per year will be their new norm.”

“We can’t go wrong with good information. This is why you need the publication you are reading. Your local paper and online news sources are crucial to a community’s health and overall well-being. Local newspapers, blogs and online sources tell what is happening in your local town and county. Support this news source with your subscription and advertising needs. County newspapers that have been around for years continue to close. Every week I receive notification of a newspaper printing its final edition and that’s not good news.”
