POTTSBORO — Most teens spend their time watching videos instead of making them – much less filming videos that win awards. One Pottsboro teen has done just that however, with a video about the Pottsboro Area Public Library no less.
Thanksgiving is a time for families, food and fun. For one Texoma family, it is also a time for giving and remembering. This week the 18th annual Bob Skaggs Memorial Food Drive is taking place on the parking lot of WalMart in Sherman.
A car overturned, but no one was seriously injured Monday in a three-vehicle wreck at the intersection of Loy Lake Road and Pecan Grove Drive in Sherman.
A major part of the draw of the Thanksgiving holiday is the act of gathering together with other people. Food figures prominently, to be sure, but the act of joining together is more than just the dessert in this feast of all feasts.
On a late fall day in 1621, the Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth Rock and the American Indians who helped them survive their first year gathered together. They celebrated and gave thanks for the bounty of the year’s harvest. That simple gathering evolved into what is now called Thanksgiving – a time to voice gratitude for the year’s blessings, big and small, to enjoy loved ones and to share with them the foods nature so richly provides.
