This request is in the bag

Years ago, GG of Holiday noticed that some of her elderly neighbors who were either handicapped or homebound had their newspapers delivered to their doors. They each had bags made for the newspaper, which was hung on their door. GG would like to continue this tradition, and she hopes someone out there remembers these bags, and knows where she can get them or has a pattern to make them. If you do, please call GG at (727) 455-0387.

Don and Maria Wyher of New Port Richey are trying to create more room in their closets. They wonder if someone out there would be interested in receiving the swimming and basketball trophies their grandson has accumulated over the years. He is now 23, and is not interested in keeping the trophies, so they are just collecting dust and taking up space. Don and Maria can deliver them anywhere in the bay area. They can be reached at (727) 372-7589.
