Letter to the Editor

While it’s true that Christmas comes but once a year, it was proven this past week that the spirit of Christmas goes beyond December 25.
For example, my 88-year old friend, Bill, who lives in Bethlehem about 18 miles from Athens, drove down to spend a few days at my cabin. The drive down was enjoyable and all was fine until he realized that he had left his meds at his home.
Early the following morning, he was almost convinced that he would have to make the time-consuming 350-mile round-trip back to his home in Bethlehem to get his meds. And then I conjured a better plan, if it would work.
I remembered in 2016 having visited the Twin City Drug Company when the retiring druggist was introducing the new druggist and his wife, Kent and Malory Kicklighter , to the community. Since the drug store was located only a few miles from my farm cabin, we were ready to give it a try.
Arriving a few minutes prior to the Saturday 9 a.m. opening time on Dec. 30, we weathered the cold until the owner appeared along with his staff to get the ball rolling.
Immediately upon explaining our challenge, Pharmacist Kicklighter made pertinent phone calls and was able to provide my friend Bill with a three-day supply of his required meds.
What does this tell me? It tells me very simply I will transfer my medication requirements to my home-town pharmacy, the Kicklighter’s Twin City Drug Company.
