Help down the stretch
The local Salvation Army has just over a week to go to complete its annual Christmas fundraising drive. Chairman Ed Paulson said collections are running slightly ahead of last year's pace when a big late surge led to $38,000 being raised. This year's collection is roughly $26,500.
"This is our last major effort to reach our goal," Paulson said. "I'd like to ask the folks here to give as much as they can."
