It was very

heartening to read your Christmas issue of the Stow Sentry as it was replete with happy words and pictures presenting the Christmas season. It had the word "Christmas" in it a number of times. The word Christmas means "Christ's Mass."

Inasmuch as you weren't afraid to use the word "Christmas," it brought us much closer to God.

Another bonus is the mention of Jesus by Mr. Bill Hammerstrom, the Hudson Hub-Times editor. And we all know that being "editor" requires lots of smarts. Thanks for this wonderful Christmas issue.
