  • Volunteers provide 500 with a Christmas meal

    Daniel Cox admitted he was feeling a bit Scrooge-ish when his father first woke him from a winter slumber early Monday morning. Shuffling canned goods into Christmas baskets for hours didn’t sound quite as inviting as the sugarplum dreams he was leaving behind.

    But by mid-morning, the nineteen-year-old admitted, “I’m glad my dad woke me up. We have so much and there are people out there that don’t.”

  • FROM THE WORD: God wants us to share this season’s gift with others

    This is the way most celebrate Christmas – we start shopping on the day after Thanksgiving and continue to do so for many days after. Then after three or four weeks, we start wondering who we have left off our shopping list. Or we start worrying if someone will like the present we got for them. When Christmas Eve or Christmas Day rolls around, we begin the massive exchange of gifts and partake in bountiful meals. Most of us eat way too much and gain at least 10 pounds, feeling miserable. During these big meals, we briefly forget about the presents under the tree.

  • Charter members will be named to suit

Attorney Carol Pettit was instructed to subpoena members of the commission in time for another hearing mid-February.

  • LETTER: Recycle Christmas trees

    This year, when at last the party’s over, remnants of the christmas tree can be taken to the park for chipping. This will give us the opportunity to create mulch from the discarded trees. Waste not, want not, the adage goes.

    Happy New Year!
