DEAR SUN SPOTS: I am looking for someone who offers sleigh rides, preferably a sleigh that has runners like the photo from the L/A Arts Gallery on the Jan. 4 back page.

I know how resourceful Sun Spots is in getting the information for the questions that are sent in, so I am confident she will be able to answer this one as well. Thank you. — No Name via e-mail

ANSWER: Sun Spots is not the resourceful one — her readers are. They usually manage to come through with an answer. Let’s hope they can help you.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I hope your readers can come to my rescue once again. Around Christmas I lost a keychain given to me by my mom before she passed away. It means a lot to me. It is a pewter angel and a yellow smiley face. I could have dropped it at Marden’s, Kmart or the Salvation Army store.

If anyone out there found it, could you please call me? It has no value to the finder, but it does to me. Thank you. — Pauline, Lewiston, 782-8314

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Thank you for the wonderful column. I read it every day. Could you tell me why the Sun Journal has stopped posting the world weather and now just has the national weather? Thanks again. — Pauline, [email protected]

ANSWER: Sun Spots put your question to Executive Editor Rex Rhoades, who responded, “In an effort to reduce expenses, we have adopted a lower level of service from The Associated Press. Unfortunately, the world temperatures are not included in the new service.”

DEAR SUN SPOTS: You are appreciated. You bring peace to the hearts of your subscribers. This letter is for the lady who requested kerchiefs in the Dec. 21 column. I have several of them. She can call me at 753-0314. — No Name, Lewiston

DEAR SUN SPOTS: If the person who inquired about a 2010 nickel is still interested, I have one. — No Name, Bethel, 824-2635

DEAR SUN SPOTS: This is in response to the letter printed on Jan. 11 from Helena Cote in Springvale, Ark. The people who stopped to assist her were Norm and Rose from Tommy’s Feral Feline Friends in Greene. I spoke with them this morning and confirmed it was them.

I, too, like Sun Spots immediately thought of them but wanted to make sure before I wrote a response. It does not surprise me at all that they would take the time to help someone in need. Their generosity is shown not only to people but also in the love and care they give to the feral cats that they rescue.

I am sure that they would never expect anyone to repay them for helping someone in need, but I know that a donation to aid them in their efforts to feed, house and provide medical care for the feral cats would be much appreciated. They can be reached either by phone at 650-8374 or by mail at P.O. Box 274, Greene, ME 04236. — Sherry, Mechanic Falls

DEAR SUN SPOTS: First I would like to thank you for your wonderful and helpful column. I look forward to it daily.

The lovely people who helped Helen out during her time of need are Rose and Norman of Tommy’s Feral Feline Friends. They are reluctant to come forward themselves, but I do know that they certainly could use and would greatly appreciate any help in their efforts to feed and care for all these precious animals.

They are out every day of the year feeding and caring for them, which is why Rose was pulling her sled with food. — Kat Dumais, [email protected]
