Collection filled food bank shelves

We at Main Street Ministries Inc. would like to offer our sincere gratitude to the community for its participation and giving during Trick-or-Treat So Others Can Eat.

We had 70 youth plus sponsors from Hillsboro churches spread out across town to collect donations from the community on Halloween night.

Once all the food was accounted for, including donations from people living just outside of town, the youth had collected 1,925 pounds of food from the community. That exceeds the total from last year by nearly 400 pounds!

Our shelves at the food bank are now bursting at the seams, due in large part to this event. This boost comes at the perfect time, as the late fall and winter seasons bring in the highest demand for food that the food bank sees all year.

Without the support of this community, the food bank, and Main Street Ministries as a whole, would not survive.

Thank you for your involvement and support.

Leah Rose, food bank director

Dogs owner asks ?snitches? to back off

I live at 506 E. First St. I have nine dogs that I feed and water every day. I am starting a kennel business.

I do not like people snitching on me. I do not bother anybody but they bother me. Are you jealous or do you hate me?

Please back off. You are not paying for dog food and cat food; I am. I pay taxes here, but I forgot I live in Hillsboro with snitches.
