Merry C H R I S T M A S Eve, Eve !
It’s getting tight if you have yet to finish your Christmas Shopping
Maryland ceded 100 square miles of land to the Federal Government this day in 1788. That parcel became The District of Columbia
Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh cut off part of his earlobe this day in 1888. Eccentric artist indeed !
The “Immaculate Reception” happened this day in 1972. Pittsburgh Steeler Franco Harris caught a deflected pass and scored the winning touchdown in a playoff game over the Oakland Raiders. It’s still one of the most memorable moments in NFL history
In the News: Local firefighters save a home from grass fire…Wilkes man dies in overnight fire…Taylorsville Police asking for help in larceny investigation…Taylorsville man arrested in Catawba County on assault charge…Burke County couple charged with beating a man with hammer
Sunny but not quite as warm today
Coach K suspends the Mad Tripper…Pack and Deacs get hoop wins…Eagles beat Giants and hand Cowboys #1 seed…Cam says Luke should not play…Tribe signs a slugger
Happy Birthday: Paul Hornung, Susan Lucci, Greg Biffle, Hanley Ramirez
Kudos for the Alexander County Sheriffs Department for helping citizens by splitting firewood and giving it to those in need. Citizen Paul Warren contributed the fallen trees. That’s the Christmas Spirit !
I railed Thursday morning that Duke basketball player Grayson Allen had to be suspended. That’s exactly what happened. I don’t think Allen is a bad person but tripping people is not cool
I think everybody looks good in a Santa Hat
On the subject of Santa, you can track his journey Saturday night at www.noradsanta.org
This weekend is going to interesting. NFL moves to Saturday so it’s going to seem like Sunday but Sunday is Christmas. Regardless, Merry Christmas to All !!!
