Kicking off Christmas

“FDR asks for a Declaration of War”
“The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, stunned virtually everyone in the United States military.
Protecting consumers and small businesses
As Christmas approaches, parents and grandparents want to know that products on store shelves are safe. News stories of lead paint decorating children’s toys and defective merchandise understandably concern consumers. Dangerously tainted drywall, which has affected many Mississippi families, also reminds us of the damage caused by poorly-made products.
Letter To The Editor
Thanks for blood:
We would like to say a special thank you for giving blood for Trinity Woods.
There is no way to express our thanks to you for trying to save someone’s life that we love.
This shows that there are still people who care.
Benny Woods and family
Thanks for support:
The True Vine Church family would like to give a special thank you to all the merchants who made donations to our Thanksgiving program in which food was provided for people in the community. It would not have been such a success without your support.
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
