Reader's Exchange: Free 'Sew Beautiful,' 'Sew News,' 'Nutrition Action,' 'National Rifleman' magazines available

This week, as often happens in Reader's Exchange, three readers all had magazines that they would like to part with. It's fascinating to see the different interests readers have, and are willing to share with others.

Margaret Fuselier has several years worth of Sew Beautiful and Sew News, as well as many other miscellaneous sewing and crafting magazines. She also has some patterns for children's clothes. She would love to pass them on to anyone who will enjoy them as much as she has. Please call her at (727) 518-8685.

Jean Powell of St. Petersburg has some old Nutrition Action magazines that go back to the mid '90s. If anyone is interested, please call Jean at (727) 528-6429.

Ed Doster has a complete set of American Rifleman magazines, ranging from 1958 to 2008, in official hardbound Rifleman binders, to give away to any sportsman. They must be picked up, and Ed can be reached at (727) 577-8040.

Vickie, who lives in the New Port Richey area, has a lid and an insert for a Princess House teapot, for anyone who has the teapot but not those items. Vickie says she has broken two teapots now and is giving up. If you need these, please call (727) 645-5410.

Janet Connell is looking for the power cord for a Cuisinart Electric Tea Kettle/Pot, Model AEK-1L. Janet says the model has been discontinued and can no longer be purchased through Cuisinart. If you can help, Janet can be reached by phone at (813) 645-3299, or via e-mail at janetmconnell@ hotmail.com.

This one might be a tough order to fill. Paula is looking for the lower half of a patio umbrella pole. She's looking for the kind that is a standard fit for the hole in a glass-top picnic table. She has a perfectly good upper portion, including the umbrella, but she can't find the lower piece. She has looked in stores and online, to no avail. If you can help Paula, please call (727) 399-0660.

Attention wine drinkers! Jon Mills of Oldsmar is looking for wine corks to use in crafts. He is looking for either true cork or the newer plastic "corks." Jon can be reached via e-mail at millskoko@verizon.net, or by phone at (727) 781-4853.

Here's an offer someone won't be able to refuse: an HP monitor and Epson 740 color printer, both in working condition, with manuals. The reader got a package deal with the purchase of a new computer and no longer needs these items. If you are interested, please call (727) 347-5640.

• • •

Nancy Eslick of Brooksville has something that is a very hot item in REX land — used greeting cards — to part with. She has collected cards for a long time, and feels it is finally time to let them go. She can be reached at (352) 597-5076.

• • •

Perhaps Lucie Somers will take advantage of Ms. Eslick's used greeting cards, but if not, she's always looking for them for various projects. If you have any cards to donate to Lucie, please mail them to 1415 Main St., No. 219, Dunedin, FL 34698.

Send requests to Reader Exchange, Floridian, St. Petersburg Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731, or e-mail features@sptimes.com. Please put "REX" in the subject line. Requests will be accepted only by mail or e-mail. This is an exchange column, so we will not run items that are for sale. Readers must agree to publication of phone numbers, including area code. Due to the volume of REX requests, it might take several weeks before your item appears in the paper.

  1. After fraught debate, Trump to disclose new Afghanistan plan

    War

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will unveil his updated Afghanistan policy Monday night in a rare, prime-time address to a nation that broadly shares his pessimism about American involvement in the 16-year conflict.

  5. Money is the issue as Hillsborough strains to fix school air conditioners

    K12

    TAMPA — With more than 200 repair requests tumbling in every day, school officials in Hillsborough County are broadening their circle of air conditioning mechanics as they struggle to control a debilitating cycle of breakdowns and sweltering classrooms.

    Hillsborough school officials want to expand the number of contractors who work on broken school air conditioning systems. But it all gets rolled into a workload that has increased by 40 percent since 2011. "With no increase in budget, no increase in equipment and no increase in manpower, and as the equipment gets older and needs more maintenance, this is going to continue to grow," said Robert Weggman, general manager of maintenance."
