To the Editor,

National Stuttering Awareness Week begins May 7, 2018. Did you know more than three million Americans stutter? That’s more than the populations of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, and Washington, DC…combined.

One percent of your readers stutter, and up to five percent of children stutter for a time during their early developmental years.

In the spirit of spreading awareness, the most important thing you can do for someone who stutters – or for anyone you are speaking with – is listen. Listen to what they have to say rather than how they say it.

For more information, visit our website: StutteringHelp.org.

To the Editor:

My husband and I were gathering pop tabs donated to us to take to Akron Childrens Hospital recently. When dumping them into boxes, he found a watch and a ring. We don’t know which containers they were in, so we don’t know who they belong to. We would like to find the owners, so we are hope the person who donated the tabs sees this letter and contacts us.

If you are the owner, please call us at 330-739-5501, describe the jewelry and will get the watch and ring to you.

To those who donate tabs to us, please make sure you are giving us pop can tabs and nothing else.
