Dear Sun Spots, I used to listen to Bud Sawyer on WLOB every weekday morning. He suddenly went off the air awhile ago, and I’ve wondered what happened to him. He is such a great personality and played such good music on his show. Thank you for your informative column. – J. Shaw, Andover.

Readers can tune into Bud Sawyer weekdays from 5:30 to 9 a.m. on New Talk WLOB on 1310 AM and 96.3 FM Mon-Fri from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. He also invites listeners to call the station at 1-877-393-8255 or (207) 775-1310 with their comments.

As noted in the April 24 column, you may want to contact the Auburn Wal-Mart which carries Dr. Scholl shoes. You may phone them at (207) 784-2911.

Dear Sun Spots: You have such an excellent column. I read it every day and love it. I find it very helpful and informative. Now it is my turn to ask for help.

We are fixing up our old farmhouse and need to find two, wooden-framed windows for our shed. I believe they were once called “Oreo” or “Oriel” windows. They are nine panes over six and measure 29½ long by 24½ inches wide. What we really need are the top windows with the nine panes. If anyone out there has any lying around that are no longer needed, we would certainly love to hear from you. Please call us at (207) 645-2906. Any or all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for a wonderful column. – Joseph M., Wilton.

Dear Sun Spots: My family is planning a reunion this summer. We would like to reach as many relatives as possible. We are looking for the relatives of Alfred and Anna Wood, and of Guy and Esther Jamison Sr. If you are related to them in any way, I would like to hear from you with any information. Or if you would like to attend, please send all inquiries or information you may have to Rod Jamison at 19 North Main St., Peru, ME 04290, (207) 562-8799.

Dear Sun Spots: Would any readers know where I can find soap-on-a-rope anywhere? I can be reached at (207) 345-3659. – Roger C., Mechanic Falls.

Dear Sun Spots: Would the gentleman who bought a rug cleaner at the lawn sale on Auburn Road (1202) in Peru on Saturday, June 28, please contact me. We have the missing part to his machine. Call and leave a message at (207) 562-7575. – Ginny Bragdon, Peru.

Dear Sun Spots: Would any of your readers have Marlboro miles they no longer need? I need about 100 of the five miles if I can get them. I would be more than willing to refund the postage on these. Thank you. – Richard in Brunswick.
