A surprise from the past

However, this was no ordinary piece of mail. It was a piece of V-Mail from one-time Colville resident, Edgar Jarrett, former owner of the town's Napa Auto Parts store, to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Jarrett of Colville.The correspondence is dated Sept. 26, 1944 and sent from France.

Carefree Hair Salon and its owner, Jill Woodward, is one of those stories.
