A Good Mix
Well readers, the holiday news lag between Christmas and New Year’s Eve is an annual thing.
I usually spin a memory about the New Year’s Fire Whistle going off at midnight, the old timey spray can snow used to decorate the downtown store windows and the silver tinsel type trees with blue ornaments and spinning gel lights. The big Christmas “Bubs” Bulbs are most certainly back in style again. I’ve seen them on trees through the residents home windows and around the exterior of the house. I am so glad to see the good old things mix with the digital age blinking decorations.
The Town Crew, Jimmy Brock, and Mayor Billy Hollingsworth certainly added a nice new sight with white/clear lights and garland on the gazebo in Heritage park. Thank You all for making life in The Whitty really pretty!
Dear readers in closing, I say Happy New Year and until next edition, feel free to send your news bits and photos to: email@example.com
