Dear Sun Spots: Clover Manor will be celebrating Hawaiian Week from June 4 through June 8. We are looking for anyone that would like to share their trip or dance or music with our elders. Please call Jim at Clover 784-3573, ext. 134, if you can help us out. Looking forward to hearing from column readers out there. – Clover Activities, Auburn.

Dear Sun Spots: I am overrun with clothing catalogs. Before I take them to the dump, are there any groups who can use them for crafts, or other purposes? If so, please call 926-5315. Thank you! – No Name, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: We have a computer we would like to donate to anyone who can use it. It would be good for parts. It does not have a monitor. It’s a Packard Bell. It’s free. Please contact 782-1722; we will be happy to answer any questions. If we don’t hear anything in a week, we’ll throw it out, so please hurry and call and help us with our cleanup. – No Name, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: I was wondering if you could help me?

I bought a water cooler at BJs for my home. It has both hot and cold temperatures on it. I see they no longer carry them but here’s my problem – I can’t find the water bottle or the filter that goes with this anywhere! It’s made by Brita and is a floor model. The filter inside says Elky on it. It was an expensive cooler, and hope Sun Spots or column readers might be able to assist me here. Thank you. – No Name, No Town.

In addition to responses from readers, try checking out their Web site at or contacting the company through their headquarters at Brita LP, 1221 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612.

Dear Sun Spots: I am hoping the person attending the Woman’s Literary Union Mother-Daughter, Doll Tea on April 28, will read this and call to claim the items she left behind.

Thanks for all that you do for the Sun Journal readership. – C.W., Lewiston.
