Charanjit and Maria Singh have sold the Marathon station and will be moving to Mr. Singh's native India. Maria writes: "Thank you for a most wonderful six years at Pleasant Lake. The love and kindness we were shown is priceless. Our new home in Punjab, India is just like the community of Pleasant Lake. We will miss everyone. Thanks a million for all the love and patronage. We will see everyone on our yearly visits back here to enjoy our grandchildren. God bless all and thanks for everything." They are building a home in Harnampura in the region of Punjab in far Northern India. It is not exactly isolated as the city of Ludhiana with a population of 1.6 million is only eight miles away. By the way, the temperature today in Harnampura was 112. That is about normal for this time of year.
