In addition to the current media postings, in this week’s print edition of The Licking News:

Rick Mansfield reflects on “There Are Gifts and There Are Gifts!” What he thought was a gift actually ate the gift. Larry Dablemont reminiscences about “New Year’s Eve 1963,” and how priorities change with the passing of time. Through the Rear-View Mirror tells of a gift that brought tears to one child’s eyes.

Evidence of our community’s caring hearts continues with those helped by Christmas in Our Hometown and those who will be helped with the Salvation Army Red Kettle drive. Cindy shares the joys of Christmas at the Licking Library, as well as new books for the winter season. We have information on new educational opportunities and home weatherization assistance.

See our Education page for honors lists, and see the West Plains man who is the world’s best in the Push-Pull, Super Heavyweight Masters power lifting competition, as well as the local winner of a super stocking.
