Two weeks ago, we published a letter from Highland Park Mayor Bill Seay, who was soliciting donations to the town’s Employee Christmas Fund. Morning News reporter Matthew Haag decided to look into how many donations were coming in. According to his report, the fund had $9,000 as of yesterday. There was twice as much money last year; as recently as 2007, the fund topped $31,000.
