Need last minute gifts? Buy them locally.

The last-minute Christmas shopping rush is on. For some of us it's the rush to complete our shopping. For others, it's time to finally kick it into gear. Christmas, folks, is nearly here.

 

And what better way to set this frenzy in motion than by partaking in La Grande's Third Thursday Art Walk, which will have downtown brimming with excitement Thursday night. Combine that with the first Figgy Pudding Caroling Contest, and you'll have an event to remember.


Go Panthers

State football titles are hard to come by. Even getting to a championship game is a rarity for most teams. This year's Imbler Panthers contingent, though, has bested the odds. Saturday at 11 a.m. at Hillsboro Stadium, Imbler will meet perennial powerhouse Mohawk to decide the Oregon 1A football champion.

Bowing out

Anyone following local politics for the past few years has undoubtedly put together the obvious — Dennis Wilkinson and his sidekick John Lamoreau want to control the county. What they can't control, they do their best to harass and destroy.

Anyone who has experienced the scorched-earth tactics of these individuals can attest to the venom they put into play. Wilkinson, under a flimsy government watchdog banner, marches about declaring fraud, waste and conspiracy. Lamoreau marches about town declaring the county inept so that he can plan, with Mr. Wilkinson's continued assistance, another run at county commissioner.


Then all hell broke loose

My body is breaking. My car is breaking. My heart is breaking.

Yet I have so much to be thankful for. And this being the season of Thanksgiving, I am on the lookout for the good in people and even bureaucracies where if you call on the phone you at last, through keen detective work, reach a living, breathing, belching person.

I'm thankful in so many ways.
