Town Talk

Body
Well, Christmas break is over so it’s time to get back to work. I woke up this morning thinking about projects I would like to complete between now and May. My main goals for Town Talk during this time frame are a Bugle Boy Statue in Ed Smalley Centennial Park, a Route 66 miniature golf course on Main Street, the pocket park on Main Street completed, our downtown outlined in lights and a shade awning in Foster Park. I don’t think those goals are too lofty, do you? With everyone working together we can make these things happen.

Great conjunction

Body
Thanks to Kindra remembering, we stepped out to the porch Tuesday evening to see the Jupiter and Saturn form the Great Conjunction, aka the Christmas Star. Kindra and I had read reports, which we both knew to be true and factually correct because they were on Facebook, that this same conjunction of two big planets created the Star of Bethlehem that led the wise men to Jesus.
