Last week I wrote about John Westbrook and Loretta Chisholm being joined together by Marrying Sam, alias Mr. Bill Miller. John and Loretta were the 229th couple he has married. Marrying Sam is known for marrying any time, any place.

Hope you can get down to the Carrabelle Boat Parade of Lights on the Carrabelle River this Saturday night. Things will start bobbing around dark-thirty, and there will be fireworks too!

Both servings start at 5 p.m. Hamburger and chips, $5 donation. Pizza by the slice, $1 each; whole pizza eat-in $8, and take-out $10. Call after 5 p.m. to place your take-out, at 697-9998.

You could win a $100 merchandize certificate good at Lanark Market! Members of Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82 are now selling the chances, or you can get yours at the Lanark Market. Tickets are $2 each, or six for $5. Good luck! Drawing will be on Super Bowl Sunday. The proceeds will go to support our veterans, and the charities of the Legion.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound. Got Jesus?
