Community service: Letter carrier drive reaps 18,000 pounds of donations Lawrence letter carriers picked up more than 18,000 pounds of donated goods Saturday during the National Association of Letter Carriers’ 10th annual food drive. David Martinez, president of the local branch, said the drive was the letter carriers’ way of giving back to the community. In Lawrence, the food will be distributed through the United Way to different nonprofit agencies. Martinez said about 65 letter carriers in the Lawrence area participated in the food drive. He said it gave them a “warm feeling” in a time when the postal service was in the news for anthrax letters and pipe bombs in mail boxes. “The public still hasn’t forgotten us and still cares,” Martinez said. “It makes you proud of Lawrence and of the community for the outpouring of generosity they have for a worthwhile cause.” _______________________________________ Politics: Baldwin businessman seeks state representative seat A Baldwin businessman on Tuesday will announce his candidacy for the 10th State House District seat currently held by Rep. Ralph Tanner, R-Baldwin. Tom Holland, president of Holland Technologies Inc., an information technology professional services firm, will formally register Tuesday morning at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Holland, a Democrat, plans to focus his campaign on public school financing. “Our state government has neglected the financial needs of our public schools for a decade, and now we have massive teacher layoffs and program reductions,” he said. “I intend to provide the necessary leadership to get public school financing back on track.” Holland has both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration and is a certified Project Management Professional. _______________________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.27 at several stations in Lawrence.
