It will be the first price change for First-Class Mail stamps (Forever stamps) in more than two and a half years. However, customers can continue to mail letters at today's prices by purchasing their Forever stamps before Jan. 22. "That's why Forever stamps were created, to help consumers ease the transition during price changes," said Park River Post- master Sharlene McGregor. The new single-piece First- Class Mail pricing, effective Jan. 22, 2012, include: Letters (1 oz.)- 1 cent in- crease to 45 cents Letters additional ounces-un- changed at 20 cents ]P,zuHk ]R-JNx00e]5 ]Iaun00ua%v Late- (Very late-) breaking news By David Larson for The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- The Wallstrom department store was having a huge post- Christmas inventory reduction sale. As part of the sale they offered coupons good for free merchandise. Wallstrom placed 50 coupons in 1000 en- velopes, and threw them off the roof at 4:00 Saturday, Jan- uary 5. Frigid citizens waited on the sidewalk to get the coupons, even though the morning temperature had reached -37 degrees. From December 27 through January 11, the warmest low tempera- ture was -15. On the eleventh the temperature hit -40. Tailor Ebbsen purchased the two-storey brick building of Jeweler Thornberg [the next building north of the Lyric].

Callie Hurtt returned to North Dakota on Dec. 24 after having spent the previous 35 days in Ghana helping to de- liver babies at a hospital in Mamfe and teaching kinder- garteners in Saforo. "I've always been interested in mission trips," Hurtt said. "The amount of appreciation you get from doing mission trips is like none other." Her first mission trip was to Nicaragua, which she said was too short at only 10 days and not as involved in the culture as she would have liked. So when she graduated from the University of North Dakota last May with a degree in biol- ogy, she knew that what she wanted to do before continuing on to medical school was a full on cultural experience. She re- searched a few companies and finally found one that fit her plans.
