Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: We have coverage from this morning’s Veterans Day assembly at the middle school with a story and gallery. Also, a 72-year-old woman driving from Riddle to the coast got off course early Thursday and ended up stranded in a drainage ditch in the Mary’s River Estates vicinity. Plus, good news for PHRED and Rep. David Gomberg makes an announcement.
Thanks for reading!
