Mr. Charles and sons will continue as south county distributors of the Hammond Times, a capacity in which they have served for a number of years. The Charleses have made a host of friends here and will be missed.
The new owners, long time residents of this community, are extended best wishes for success.
Mr. Hein, manager of the Lowell license branch, is an established realtor here. His salesman is Dewey Childress. Mr. Charles, for the past seven years, has had the south county Hammond Times distributorship. His son, Gerald Charles, who was associated with him in distributing papers, will be a salesman for the Hein-Charles Company, and also will sell Chevrolets at the Cullen Chevrolet agency. John Leathers of Cedar Lake will complete the real estate sales staff.
Robert Henke, of 925 Kankakee Ave., will take over Jerry's Times route on January 26, and Mr. Charles will sever his relations with the Times as soon as another distributor is obtained.
