It's hard to believe that Christmas is behind us, and a new year is right before us. We hope all of you enjoyed your holiday, and are looking forward with optimism to 2017.
One thing we hope continues into the new year is the spirit of giving. Our front page is full of stories of generosity, and opportunities to give. From the free presentation of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to elementary children, to the law enforcement and dispatcher Christmas programs, the spirit of giving has been evident this holiday season. Furthermore, though a local family lost their home due to fire, their family, friends, and neighbors have not been hesitant in organizing ways for the community to help out.
Though the world around us is sometimes bleak, there are always glimpses of hope in the way our community is so giving.
We look forward to this continuing in the new year.
