JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Julie Bednarski and John Kajdan scrawled down notes on a piece of junk mail about quotes for earthmovers, heat pumps and calculations.
That junk mail was a note mailed from a local bar and addressed to the former residents of the couples’ home on Birch Lane in the Mendenhall Valley, to inform them about birthday coupons. Bednarski and Kajdan are financially savvy, but unlikely to care about whether or not a bar knows their birthday.
