It’s seldom I write an editorial but these little treats have me in a whirlwind. Some people says it’s the swirl on the top that has me hooked, other’s say it’s the vivid colors that fascinate me. My long time Georgia friends call me “the Cupcake Princess” therefore on Thursday, December 15, 2011 everyone may address me as “Your Royal Highness,” because it’s National Cupcake Day.

With Dalhart gearing up for Christmas, our high school mascot received an early Christmas present. A new mascot costume has been purchased in the name of school spirit. The furry faced, friendly wolf came equipped with a fan to cool the wearer, more vents to allow air to circulate and a friendlier face. “We’re in hope the new face won’t be as scary for young children,” stated Brandy Carranza, cheerleader sponsor.

The thought of a cute new puppy in your Christmas morning pictures sounds great, but - oh no! The days that follow can be a disaster, even if you’re not the victim of fraud!
One of the latest scams is with puppies. Have you ever read a classified ad that states, “Cute puppy, vet checked, lots of love, great with kids and other pets, all shots are up to date.”  The ad will only list an email address for a contact. This is a ‘buyer beware.’

Mary, the Father’s choice

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

In a small, insignificant village called Nazareth there lived a young woman named Mary.  She went about the daily chores in her parent’s home, met Joseph, who was to become her husband and began to prepare for her marriage.
The God of the universe looked down on fallen man. He knew He must redeem them. He did not go to a thriving metropolis. He did not go to a palace.  He sent an angel to the small, insignificant village, Nazareth with an important message for Mary who was “highly favored by Him.”
Her “song of praise” recorded in Luke Chapter 1, indicates her lowly estate in life.

Black Friday 2011 saw its share of bargain-fueled insanity, as shoppers lined up earlier than ever to take advantage of midnight openings and to get discounts at stores that even opened on Thanksgiving Day. For some stores, Thanksgiving is apparently the New Black Friday. Wal-Mart launched its holiday kickoff at 10:00 p.m., joining Toys ‘R Us and other chains that barely let the turkey get cold before opening their doors.
