Christmastime, football bring excitement for all

Granddaughter Susan gave me a quote that I would like to share. I think it was sent to her on Facebook, Here goes:
“If you want to feel rich, consider all the gifts you now have which money cannot buy.”
I love it, and find it especially appropriate at this time of year. I’d already thought of the hymn chorus which says, “Count your blessings. Name them one by one — and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.”

Vehicles need special attention

Locals chime in on winterizing tips
121811 winter2 C_0.jpg

During this time of year, vehicles owned by residents are in need of special attention in order to survive the winter months.
Jodie Wood, owner of Wood Marine, said there are several key factors to keep in mind when winterizing a boat.
“For ski boats you want to make sure you treat the gas for ethanol. If it is not treated it can have damaging effects,” he said. “Residents need to make sure they drain the water from the engine, too, so that the water doesn’t freeze and crack the motor. Also, the engine of a ski boat needs to be fogged.”

Local children in need of sponsors

Emerson Centre, Junior Auxiliary help brighten holidays

Several local children are in need of some Christmas cheer this holiday season. Both the Emerson Centre and the Junior Auxiliary are still seeking individuals to sponsor children for the holidays.
Rick Emerson, founder of the Emerson Centre, said their Christmas Bears program is held each year for the holidays. The program allows each child the Emerson Centre serves to write a Christmas wish on a bear. Then community members pick up a bear and help to meet that need.
“My wife, she’s one of the main cogs,” Emerson said. “The people over in the (Louisiana Tech University) Comptroller’s Office and people at the (Tech) bookstore are big helps.”
