Posted by | November 29, 2017 4:31 am

The holiday season is just around the corner, and with it comes tons of excitement and fun. The down side, however, is that the holidays also bring their share of stress. Rather than just putting up with all that tension, you can instead decide to face stress head on. Here are seven ways to do just that. 1. Eat well.

Letter: Driver stunned by lack of caring while stranded on US 301

Posted by | November 29, 2017 1:26 am

Monday morning, Nov. 27, I was a little surprised at the lack of concern for a fellow motorist. I stood beside my daughters’ car with a flat tire (on U.S. 301) and watched person after person drive by. Many people were just texting or on their phones! But I made eye contact with some people, and they didn’t think twice about a woman standing in the cold. I even recognized some people, but I won’t call you out. I watched trucks with more than one person in (them). There were people in service trucks, people that work at the nearby… Read the rest

Letter: Put ‘Christmas’ back in name of Parade

Posted by | November 28, 2017 8:59 am

So, something I wanted to get off my chest after Sunday. So, now, the city of Manning has decided to take over the Christmas parade, and with that, they decided it’s no longer a Christmas parade. Last I checked, we still live in a Bible-carrying, God-fearing area of the country. So they think its OK now to take Christ out of the parade and now call it a Parade of Lights. Stop please. Christ is the reason for the season, not the lights. So, go back to calling it a Christmas parade. J. EADDY Manning

Posted by | November 28, 2017 4:29 am

Every medication has side effects and no medication is 100% safe, but there are ways to manage the side effects of narcotic painkillers.
