City crews go above and beyond to make Christmas special

December 3, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, commuters in downtown West Point drove down Main Street and Commerce Street to the pleasant surprise of Christmas lights and decorations.
Crews for the West Point Water and Light and the entire city electric department worked tireless hours and in a quick manner to get the decorations up for city residents.
A few days later, the crews were taking children of the community up in the city’s bucket trucks to allow them to place ornaments on the community’s Christmas tree at Sally Kate Winters Park.

Summerall: Musing on St. Nick

December 1, 2012

When I was small I was terrified of Santa Claus. I refused to go anywhere near him at the stores, even though he usually tried to entice children to sit on his lap with a candy cane.
I’m grown now and the more I think about it, the shadier this Santa character gets. First of all, little kids are told to never talk to strangers. There is no mention of unless he has a long white beard and a red suit. We were also told to never take candy from strangers. This Santa guy always has has candy and seems to defy all the rules in order to get little kids to sit on his lap. Hmmmmm.

The Elegant B: Center of attention

December 1, 2012

A beautiful table setting is not complete without a centerpiece. It’s like the topping of a cake. For the Christmas season everyone wants something glitzy and different. One of my most popular items I sale during the Christmas season are Cone Trees. Many people use them as centerpieces on their table. The cone trees can be easily accented with vases filled with ornaments or either two small floral arrangements.
