Jim Tatum's March 21 column was entertaining as well as informative. It certainly brought to light the need for qualified home repair professionals. This planet needs carpenters, electricians and plumbers. Scores of your readers are helpless without them. Many of us, like you, feel good when we repair or build something with our own hands. All of us are happy when we save money.

I have received complaints from constituents regarding The State newspaper's delivery of The Extra, which is a circular periodically distributed via door-to-door delivery to the citizens of Kershaw County. The Extra is delivered by couriers who typically throw the circular, contained in a plastic bag, on the driveways of Kershaw County homes and on public rights of way in front of homes. Many times the circulars are not picked up. I am concerned about these complaints and what many citizens consider litter.
