A Rifle soldier told his grandmother he’d like to share the special taste of Colorado elk jerky with his friends in Iraq. Another local soldier loves tube socks. These two, along with 14 other local soldiers currently in Iraq will have their wishes and more for Christmas this year as packages will soon be sent to them from home.

If readers want to help in any way (maybe a hunter or two who’d want to share some elk jerky with a special soldier), please contact Betty Scranton at 945-6855.

RSVP volunteers can help seniors and their families navigate the Medicare D system to select a prescription drug plan to meet their needs. Call 384-8744, leave your name, phone number, and town of residence. A volunteer will contact you.

Every senior who either has or should have Medicare D Prescription Coverage should have their current plan assessed, because costs and drug coverages have changed on all plans. This will allow you to make a wise choice that will best meet your needs.
