Laura Stewart is home and improving every day. Get better fast and enjoy the holiday season.

Papa Dixon visited with Dustin recently and hit a deer on his way home. He is fine, but his truck did not fare as well.

Kudos to the road crew in Thorndike. The Ward boys are doing an awesome job. You guys are really appreciated. I hear very complimentary comments when I am out and about. Thank you.

Congratulations to Thorndike Fire Department member Ben Lopes on completing the National Registry EMT basic training. Good job, Ben.

A very happy belated birthday to my daughter, Lori Grant Nason.

Comedian Steven Wright is quoted as saying, "When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane."

Stay warm and enjoy all the Christmas music.
