JIM YOUNG'S Small Engine Repair "V - Your Local Echo Chainsaw Dealer Halfway, Ore. 742-5131 The Marke t Baske t BY KEN PERINCHIEF When have been separated from people I really care for, I miss them, and when we are 742-7744 re-united I tell them so. This element doesn't change just because I am in the retail business. I am aware, however, that when I tell friends, 'Tve missed you" at Jimtown Market there surfaces an awkwardness on the part of the person I have address- ed, almost like guilt feel- ings. And yet, there need be none. I realize I am not always in the store, or that the length of time absent may be for any numbers of reasons. But I still miss you. So when I tell you so, it is a sincere compliment, not flattery. Isn t it nice to be miss- ed? I III II III IIII I III Now Serving Baker County Air Rotary...
