In last week’s article, I made an error reporting the time of the singing and supper for Justin O’Bryan’s benefit. The chili supper was at 4 p.m. and the singing at 6:30 p.m. I’d like to apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused. There was a nice turnout and the family would like to thank everyone for their generosity. Please mail any donations to help pay medical and travel expenses to Richard and Teresa O’Bryan, P.O. Box 59, Dycusburg, KY 42037. According to family members, Justin has had glaucoma since he was about three months old.
