Dear Sun Spots: Could you please tell me what has happened to the Fox radio station that had Laura Ingrahm at 9, Shawn Hannity at 3 and Mike Gallagher at 12. Mike hasn’t been on for some time.

He was replaced by Neal Boortz (don’t care for him). Where are these people and why aren’t they on anymore? My days of radio have been replaced with TV. Thank you! – Laura, Lewiston.


Answer: According to the Newstalk WLOB 96.3/1310 Web site, they are moving off the 96.3 FM spot to make way for WJAB Sports Radio. In the midst of the changes, the WLOB FOX Morning News will continue daily with Ray and Ted 6 to 9 a.m. on FOX 23 TV. You can still hear all of the shows on Newstalk WLOB 1310 AM.

Dear Sun Spots: A few weeks ago in Auburn I saw a Jeep with a bumper sticker with words something like “the closer you come, the slower I drive.”

Unfortunately I didn’t see it until the Jeep was driving away or I would have asked where they purchased it. I have had enough of drivers tailgating, a cause of a great many accidents.

I hope someone can tell me where I can purchase such a bumper sticker. – Marion, Naples.


Answer: You can order bumper stickers that say “the closer you get, the slower I’ll drive” on a variety of Web sites. Check out http://bumperstickers.cafepress.com; they sell this particular sticker, or you can even come up with a saying and create your own.

To order the bumper sticker by phone, call 1-877-809-1659, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Hopefully, the driver of the Jeep is reading and will let us know where they purchased theirs.

Dear Sun Spots: I am interested in finding out if there is a value to World War II stamp ration books. I have three books that were issued to my mother, brother and myself, with stamps in some of them. Thank you, great column. – Louise, Rumford.

Answer:
In addition to responses from readers, we found that the books have more personal value than anything else.

They are common and the demand for the stamps and ration books are not very high. On eBay, a collector can buy a ration book for between $1.49 and $10.

Dear Sun Spots: We enjoy your column very much and we see everyday that people are helping people. We decided that Sun Spots was the place for us to go to find a Good Samaritan.

We the members of the Beacon House in Rumford are in need of some help with our pool table and equipment.

Our table needs to be fixed up and quite possibly a new felt put on. We are a small nonprofit social club our funds are limited so we really could use the help of a Good Samaritan.

We can be contacted at 41 Bridge St., Rumford, ME or by calling 207-369-0868. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. – Beacon House, Rumford.
