Marathon FL -- Area retiree Mike Koskinen, 68, had a few items in his basket. In his half hour in the store, he directed tourists from Michigan, Ontario and Missouri, plus a group of college boys who did not have time to talk, to the drugstore, RV repair, ice cream shop and hair cutters. All had converged on the K Mart to solve their problems this Monday morning.
Now he is headed home to tell their stories to Madge, if she is in the mood. Sometimes she has to take her pills first, which he already got from the CVS pharmacy next door.
