Mountain Messenger (we love Xmas) 11/8/17

There is nothing to say about the Mountain Messenger except it is the time of the year to start thinking about your Christmas or other Happy Holiday ad you want to put in the paper. The Mountain Messenger Christmas edition is almost as good as the April 1st edition cause you get to read heart felt messages to each other in the community even those who call Fish & Wildlife on their neighbors like to to put Merry Christmas ads in the Mountain Messenger. Remember you will be part of history in the making as Mt Mess will always be the oldest continuously published newspaper in the golden west as long as we support it with our subscriptions and ads.
