A few weeks ago, my friend “K” came to visit me from western Pa. She came up on Thursday and thought she was meeting her cousin at the Clinton County courthouse at 8:30 a.m. Friday. They had a litigation at 9 a.m. I took her around the area and showed her where to park. At 9 a.m. Friday I got a call from her that no one was there. I said I would try to find help, and called the county clerk. She assured me there was nothing on the docket, and maybe the venue was Lycoming County court. I asked if she could locate my friend and help her (I may have played the 80-years-old card). There was no news, then I got a call from my friend that she was at the Lycoming County Court but the door was locked. I called a the clerk there. She said the court action was indeed there, but may be adjourned for lunch. I asked her fervently if she would find my friend, who was frustrated and confused, and help her. (I’m sure I played that age card again). She did find her and solved the situation! Kudoes to both these considerate ladies. THANK you so much! This is our taxes at work, people. — Barbara Barger
