Veterans Day has come and gone but our appreciation and respect for those men and women who have and who are serving our country should be recognized each and every day. The freedoms we have in this country do not come free.

Our good friend and neighbor, Joel Housley, played for his first time at Reyes Mexican restaurant in Choctaw. I’m sorry I missed his performance but I hear all went well and they are looking forward to hearing from him again. If you get a chance, check it out, support a neighbor and support a local restaurant.

It’s the season to travel to visit family and friends. Please drive safely for the holidays, designate a driver if need be, and enjoy your holidays.
