Posted by | November 11, 2018 9:30 am

The Manning Times has a new employee. He’s not a typical employee, as he will not receive a traditional paycheck, even though his hours will be as long, if not longer than anyone else. He will be the first one at work in the mornings and the last one there at night. He will even be there on weekends.

His day will consist of supervisory work, moving from co-worker to co-worker to involve himself in their day-to-day tasks. He will listen to complaints and will offer meditative assistance for those needing to de-stress.

Selflessly, he will offer companionship and offer … Read the rest

To build a thankful heart

Posted by | November 9, 2018 4:00 pm

November has pushed aside the youthful playfulness of Halloween, bringing a more introspective aspect to our fall and winter holiday triad. As we move toward Thanksgiving, we become more family-focused, reaching out to long-held connections and traditions.

Thanksgiving arose out of harsh conditions and a pact between the Wampanoag people and the English to assist and protect one another. That first harvest feast in fall eventually blended with a celebration of thanks for rains after a drought, and Thanksgiving was born.

Yes, the story is far more detailed and rich, but the sentiment of coming together to celebrate the things … Read the rest

The city of Manning got a shot in the arm Thursday after Rural Infrastructure notified officials of a $500,000 grant award that will allow for the replacement of existing and aged sewer lines.
