​Since we all know and love Becca Bryant, we are at a loss as what to say or what to do since she lost her home to a fire recently. I hear that a benefit is being planned in January at Mount View and the community will pull together and help her get back on solid ground. Everyone is just waiting for directions of what to do. We all want to help and we will all be there at any benefit to show our support to a wonderful person. I will post more information as I get it.

​Dustin's dad, Fred Curtis, was a Christmas week guest of his. They had not seen one another for over 17 years. They had a great time getting to know one another again. Dustin's sister, Shaina, also visited on Christmas Eve.

George Orwell is quoted as saying, "The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it."
