Abner Applegate

For the last forty-five years, Abner Applegate has reported on the village's downtown happenings for the shire's only newspaper, The Cloverdale Times.

Abner monitors the community's pulse from his favorite bench outside the village's Piggly Wiggly.  The bench sits next to the coin operated rocket ride and opposite the atomic gumball machine.  
"There isn't much that gets by old Abner," the store's manager was heard saying just the other day.

Abner appreciates news tips and leads.  He asks that they be written and deposited in the open satchel he keeps next to him on the bench. Please be mindful and don't wake him - if at all possible.
