DEAR SUN SPOTS: I’m looking for a retired electrician to install a light switch in an existing junction box. It’s too small for my fingers.

Your column and a cup of coffee is my first go-to every morning! — No name, Lewiston

ANSWER: I hope an electrician (retired or not) will come to your aid and give you a hand with this project. Have you thought of contacting electrical contractors in the area? I know it can be difficult to find help with a small job like this one, but perhaps someone could swing by if they have another customer near you and not charge you too much.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Regarding the March 7 Sun Spots, another organization accepting donations is The Store Next Door in the lower level of Longley School at 145 Birch St. in Lewiston. It serves homeless youth and their families.

There is a need for clothing for all ages, hygiene products, household goods, school supplies, bedding and food. In keeping with their philosophy of “zero waste,” they pass items on to other local agencies if they do not use them.

Items may be dropped off at the marked covered entryway accessed from the lower level parking lot. — No name, no town

DEAR SUN SPOTS: In reply to the reader inquiring about Parade magazine, I miss it too.I found if you go to the Sunday E-paper, you get the full size Parade.
