In the newsletter today: The Three Things column announces a decision by the city of Philomath to publish its public notices with Philomath News, a rundown of holiday-related events coming up here in town and a reference to our city in a recent Ron Wyden statement before the Senate Finance Committee. Have a great weekend.

Thanks for reading!
