Word of Mouth gives readers a forum to express opinions on a variety of issues by telephone. Calls must be limited to one minute. We reserve the right to edit calls for clarity, length and libel. Callers must leave their name and a number at which they can be contacted (usually between 8 a.m. and noon). Only comments accompanied by a name will be published and only after the caller's identity is verified. Callers' names will appear in print. Call 586-4636 and press 8255 to leave a message.
Owners of the two little shih-tzus, Natasha and Sebastian, I need information on the cart you had for Natasha. A little weebopp was paralyzed by a drunk driver on the bike path. Please call 789-2748.
