I was pleasantly surprised to read in the "Dear Abby" column of Aug. 7 a letter where a writer thanked the U.S. Postal Service for delivering many letters to him with only his name, city and state on the envelope. This is in stark contrast to the service being provided to many small communities in the Northwest.

When my husband and I returned to our home after he entertained at the Irrigon Watermelon Festival, we inadvertently packed two of the festival's microphones with our equipment. We were contacted in just a few days and told the microphones were needed for a "Music in the Parks" concert.
