  • Got to be Real: Recalling the magic of Christmas

    By Shonna Sheckles

    It is finally here. My most favorite time of the year, Christmas. I love the Christmas season more than my birthday and that is saying a lot. As a child, I would start bugging my parents just as soon as all my Christmas gifts were opened about what I wanted the next year. I know now that sounded a bit spoiled to say the least.

    Christmas at our house was a big deal. My mother would cook for what seemed like days in preparation for that day. You know, cook up a lot of food, just in case someone dropped by during the holidays.

  • From the Cheap Seats: Giving to those in need is a great personal gift

    The tag dangled midway up the church Christmas tree, away from many of the others tags that remained.
    As my wife and I looked at the ages on the tags of the First Christian Church version of an Angel Tree, we looked for a young child, but we came back to the one with the number 14 on it — the age of this Angel Tree child. This young man is the same age as our son.
    We have made our purchases for the youngster — clothes and cologne — and I often have wondered over the last few weeks if this would be all he would receive for Christmas.

    Hardin County Road Supervisor Ronnie Goodman said the county has about 2,000 tons of salt and 1,000 gallons of brine on hand as it readies for winter.
