If you are going to put news for me in one of my Donnelly “mailboxes” please do so by noon Mon, although I usually check them late Tue a.m. ;on occasion I do check them Mon aft or evening if I am in Donnelly for a meeting or something else. If you are going to send it via other means (e-mail, phone calls, Facebook private message etc.), or put it in the McCollar jewelry “mailbox”, please do so by Tue evening, as that is when I usually do the most work on my column, however I can accept news until my deadline to submit the column which is 3 p.m. Thursday. I try my best to keep up with things like births ,deaths, weddings, other celebrations etc. ,but I do miss some on occasion so fell free to fill me in I miss something, while I have lived here all my life I do not know everybody ,esp. some of the younger kids.
