If you had trouble contacting a state office Thursday, it´s because courthouses and state offices were closed for Lincoln´s birthday.
Of course, today is Friday the 13th, a commonly unlucky day. But not to worry.
Tomorrow is Valentine´s Day 2004, and this Monday is also a holiday.
In observance of President´s Day, on Monday, look for banks, government offices, and schools to be closed. In addition, don´t expect mail delivery or garbage pickup.
