  1. With so many seniors and low-income people in the landers area I find it astonishing that once again our community has no meal or food pantry that offers assistance to those who would benefit most from being able to eat a nice thanksgiving meal. Have our churches and people really become that self absorbed that they will again let nine people off the top of my head go without food and compassion AGAIN this holiday. Yet we steady ask for donations, y?
