    By CINDY CULBERTSON, News Correspondent, Phone, 843-5547 — The weather has been a bit unusual, but at least is has not been snowing.

    It is hard to decide on whether we want the heat or the cold. We as humans tend to complain no matter what the temperature.

    Continue to remember Kelcie Davis, Harold Sturgeon, all our military and those in need of other things. God knows all.
