Dear NLDline Friends:  You will find a new format to this page.  In the past, each new piece of information was immediately added as I received the information. Hopefully, the new headings will help you get around this information more easily.  Remember, Newest NLD News  is merely  the page where new information is posted; often,  there are features with more information on the same topic(s) on the left hand side of the home page of NLDline.   As always, email NLDline with pertinent information you find.  JL
