Dear Sun Spots: Back in their heyday, our local textile mills published newsletters for their employees. Museum L-A is looking for a specific issue of “The Pepperell Sheet” published for Pepperell Mill workers. The one we would like to see is from June 1941 - Vol. 5, No. 6. We do not have any copies of the Pepperell newsletter in our collection and would welcome donations. Please contact Susan at Museum L-A, 333-3881 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. – No Name, No Town.
Dear Sun Spots: I have written to you before with great success. Thank you and thanks for helping so many people.
I have two old Columbia 26-inch bicycles. If anyone is interested in restoring them they can have them.
Also, is there anyone around interested in old tools? I have some that were my father’s many years ago. I may be reached at 225-3545. – No Name, Turner.
Dear Sun Spots: How can a person opt out of public files that have incorrect information? I have contacted Intelius about this and they tell me they cannot erase any public files. I don’t want to be in their database and want to get my public files removed from all public records. – No Name, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: You have been so helpful to many. I’m hoping I too will have some luck with the column and readers.
