Dear Sun Spots: I would like help from your readers for a research project I will be working on for the next few months.

I’m doing research for my next book “Simply Healing.” I would like to hear from anyone who has had experience of vibrations healing. Whether by Reiki, therapeutic touch, prayer, laying-on-the-hand, polarity, Juna, or any other method of energy work. All information is confidential. Healing can be of physical, emotional or spiritual in nature.

I can be reached at P.O. Box 363, Auburn, ME 04210-0363 or by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at (207) 786-2632. Thank you so much. – Sonja Christiansen, Auburn.

Dear Sun Spots: My name is Brittany Stott. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. I like to camp, swim, take hikes and I like to do arts and crafts. I also like animals a lot. I don’t like homework and I don’t like sports.

I live with my mom, dad, little brother, a cat and a dog. We live in Muskegon, Mich., very close to Lake Michigan. I go to Orchard View Middle School and am in the 8th grade. It’s a medium sized school and also has lots of students.

I am writing because we are learning about the different types of letters and how to write them. It’s also because we want to learn about the different states in our country. I hope that the really nice citizens will send me a postcard or a brochure about your state. Everyone in my class has a different state. We will keep track of the locations on a large map in our room.

Thank you in advance for putting my letter in the paper. I hope to learn many new things about the state of Maine. I hope to learn about the animals in the state of Maine. I hope that the citizens will send my class and I facts about the state. It would be cool to hear from schools that are in the state of Maine. Thank you. We can be reached at Orchard View Middle School, 35 South Sheridan, Muskegon, MI 49442. – Brittany Stott, Muskegon, MI.
