GARY TROYER, Richland
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. An elder neighbor's old pickup truck was frustrating him. No matter how often he pumped up the tire, it kept going flat.
Unknown to him, the tire was taken to a local shop for a free flat fix. Was not to be; the bead was falling apart. When told the story, it was replaced with a serviceable used one at no charge. The reason for the season; thank you.
