I love sitting by the fire with a warm cup of coffee, listening to Bing Crosby sing as I watch the lights on our Christmas tree twinkle.
Having a birthday in December is tough, and the closer the date to Christmas the harder it is.
STARKVILLE – I remember so well the unbearable anticipation of Christmas Eve with my sisters Sharon and Sheila in the little teacher’s home across from the Beulah-Hubbard school in rural Newton County a half-century ago.
Among the best times at Christmas is watching the youngest in the family open their presents and seeing the excitement on their faces.
The Christmas decor at the Bruce red-light, intersection of Hwy 9 and 32 looks great. It’s new this year– lighted deer and a sleigh and really adds a lot to the corners.
STARKVILLE – Of course, it has name that fits our self-absorbed society – it’s called “distracted walking.” Consider it a second cousin to “distracted driving.”
It’s still two weeks from Christmas, but I may have already opened my most exciting gift.
Latest Grisham book starts slow, but picks up; Ellie Kathryn doesn’t believe in throwing candy in parade

STARKVILLE – Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant joined a 17-state coalition this week in a lawsuit over President Barack Obama’s unilateral executive actions on immigration. The suit seeks to bar President Obama’s action.
Nationally, Obama’s executive actions would spare about 4.1 million parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who have lived in the U.S. for at least five years from deportation and extend to them the right to work. Several hundred thousand young people would receive similar protections.
