Winter storms and the cold, snow and ice are here, making it more challenging for letter carriers to deliver your mail.

Make sure your mailbox itself is visible and free of snow and ice and make sure it is safely accessible for your letter carrier. Clear your mailbox area of snow, sleet, slush, ice and debris.

Little girl OK after fall from balcony

The simple, wide-eyed joy of children on Christmas morning is, perhaps, a parent’s greatest holiday blessing. Excited squeals roust mom and dad their slumber. Groggily, they rise and shake off the night’s weariness - then watch as bright packages are excitedly torn asunder, revealing the long anticipated treasures concealed within. It is one of the most cherished rituals of this festive season.
In a hospital room in Denver this Christmas, one Montana family gathered to give prayerful thanks for a gift far more precious than anything that could have been hidden in a box or stowed beneath a tree – the life and continued improving health of their little girl.
Dec. 18, 20-month-old Lahren Fowler tumbled from a second floor balcony at the Yogo Inn and suffered a traumatic brain injury. The accident happened in a split second – a moment’s distraction while her family hurried to board the Polar Express Christmas train. In the first hours of the crisis, Lahren’s parents, Kelli and Shawn Fowler, feared their daughter’s life could be lost. Lahren had a fractured skull and had to be resuscitated, then raced by ambulance to the Central Montana Medical Center and flown by chartered jet for treatment at the Denver Children’s Hospital.
