Christmas time is near

Waco news

WACO — Hi! It’s getting closer to that time – Christmas! Have you put your tree up yet?  Have you finished your shopping – notice how these questions just keep popping up when talking with someone?

If you noticed blue lights flashing on Flint Road in the wee hours last Sunday morning, the lights were not about a wreck or anything like that, but a wreck was possibly avoided.

The lights were telling potential drivers that a horse had accidentally wandered onto the road. Eventuallly, he was back behind the fencing and everything turned out okay.

Waco Elementary School’s 100th-year celebration committee is still waiting for the two commemorative bricks for the walking trail to be returned to school.

The large brick had  a Dr. Seuss “Left foot, right foot ...” engraving on it (Kindergarten Class of 2012); the smaller brick had Carl and Ann Webb family members engraved on it.

If you have any information on the location of the bricks, please let Mrs. Webb, librarian and committee member know (no questions asked and thanking you in advance for your help in their return).  

From the desk of Tim Jones, pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church, we have these notes to pass along:

Congratulations and happy anniversary wishes are extended to Harold and Donna Rice for attaining 60 years of wedded bliss!

Their children hosted a reception in their honor last Sunday at Arlington Country Club. (Sa-a-alute!)

Flatwoods Puppet Ministry will present a Christmas Story on Sunday, Dec. 23 at the 10:45 a.m. service. The puppet story was written by Walter Compton and the young people will be handling the puppets.

Fourteen school boxes were filled by volunteers of the church for the school children in Haiti recently. Thanks to all who helped in this endeavor.

Happy birthday wishes go out to Sara Stewart, Dec. 1; Jennifer Martin, Dec. 2; Mildred Maupin, Dec. 3; Ruthie Willis and Stacy Stamper, Dec. 9; and Justin Plummer, Dec 13.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Don Earl and Sue Rice, Dec. 6!

On a sad note, sincerest sympathies to the family of Odessa Burton who was laid to rest in Flatwoods Cemetery last Saturday.

All your friends and neighbors have you in their thoughts and prayers at this time. (I most certainly will miss “O’s” re-telling of “events” with her family and her contagious laughter. May you rest in peace, friend.)

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!

(Did I hear a forecast of possible “snowflakes” for next week?)

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
