A beautiful day in the neighborhood: Mister Rogers comes home
By Chris Ulicne
Assistant Editor

If youíre ever looking for a reminder of all that is good in the world, make your way down to James H. Rogers Memorial Park in Latrobe.

Mister Rogers will be there waiting for you, with that same timeless smile you remember from your childhood.

The Latrobe community welcomed the late Fred Rogers home again Saturday morning as a new bronze statue of the beloved childrenís television personality was unveiled in the park, a place named in honor of Fredís father.

Letters to Santa deadline Dec. 15
Hey kids, does Santa know if youíve been naughty or nice?

Well, donít take a chance that he will have the wrong information about you this Christmas season. Write a letter to Santa and submit it to the Bulletin!

Donít wait until it is too late! The deadline for letters to be at the Bulletin office is Thursday, Dec. 15.

The Bulletin will publish the letters before Christmas, just in case they donít make it to the North Pole before Santa leaves to deliver presents to boys and girls everywhere.

The Bulletin will be publishing a Letters to Santa section on Wednesday, Dec. 21, that will include all the letters written to the Bulletin on the official Bulletin Letters to Santa form that is published in the Bulletin each day.

You can mail the letters to Santa Letters, Latrobe Bulletin, P.O. Box 111, Latrobe, PA 15650, or drop them off in the front door slot at 1211 Ligonier Street.

All letters must be signed and include your phone number. The name of the letter-writer will be printed but not the phone number.

But as the databaseís founder works on plans to expand its reach, Nicklaus said its adoption by local police is lagging.
