I-O closure for the Holiday

35_mitten_tree_5947I-O MITTEN TREE   — This year, due to the generosity of many folks, the Mitten Tree pulled in 123 pairs of mittens and gloves, 14 scarves and 19 hats. This will all help in keeping hands warm for youngsters who otherwise wouldn’t have a pair of gloves.  I-O Photo by Buck Traxler




The Independent-Observer will be closed at noon on Dec. 24 and, of, course, all day on Dec. 25 so our staff can be with family and friends.

The newspaper will also be open until noon on Dec. 31 and closed all day on Jan. 1.

Everyone at the I-O wishes all our friends and neighbors the very best during this Christmas season and may you all be safe and prosper in the New Year.

If, for some reason, you need to get a hold of someone from the newspaper, dial up 271-3864.
