SoHum Awareness:Joyce Milbauer Benton: Love the Enterprise comment about the workers still filling the mail boxes. I know how those Ferndalers are if thier mail is late – the workers are more afraid of that than some white powder! 🙂

SoHum Awareness: I found that comment unsettling..in that if it had been a bio toxin, then all the mail would of been contaminated as well. Lets hope that ‘they’ already knew they were safe when they started loading up the mail boxes again. ~bobbi
