The holidays are here, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah have past, and Christmas is fast approaching.
Events pile up: office Christmas parties, other Christmas parties, finishing up extra work to be ahead once it is time to take off, and of course shopping for presents.
You usually find Poinsettias at Churches around Christmas being sold as fundraisers.
The normally plain, leafy plant usually has no distinct qualities about it, but come December the leaves turn a colorful red or shades of white, pink or yellow.
Poinsettias have been popular among residents of Mexico for a long time, from the Aztecs of old to the current residents.
Central High School’s Sarah Bernhardt Theatre was standing room only Sunday afternoon, as the Central bands performed a Christmas concert.
The Freshman, Symphonic and Honor Bands performed a variety of Christmas music, as well as sold a chili supper at the cafeteria in order to raise funds for the program.
In addition, a Marine was present collecting donations for Toys for Tots.
Some Special Ops cops in stealth mode Wednesday busted a few burglars in the 1300 block of South Hill, having been alerted to some suspects suspiciously driving a Chevy Tahoe around the area.

‘Don’t leave your keys in your car,’ they say. ‘Someone will drive off in it.’ And while we’re sure that it happens somewhere, that place certainly isn’t San Angelo, and definitely not in our own front yards. Plus, it’ll only take a second to run inside and grab something. It’ll be fine.
A heavy fog has settled over the city, and with last week's ice still thawing, many are curious as to how the weather is supposed to continue. After speaking to the National Weather Service, Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Mild has issued an update.
Sunday crime trended back toward drugs, dishonesty and violence, as the number of calls for assault, theft, forgery and possession topped the lists of logs and bookings.

Flight 2511 – arriving at 12:10 p.m. and departing at 12:40 p.m.
The winter storm put Christmas at Old Fort Concho on a freeze. Friday marked the first time in 32 years that a whole day cancellation has occurred.
“Last year was the best year, this might be the worst,” said Chris Morgan, Commander of the Fort Concho Artillery group.
A long time ago, someone had the bright idea to put candles on a tree they brought inside to celebrate the winter solstice.
The Germans that invented what we know today as the modern Christmas tree decorated their trees with candles and gingerbread.
Not always the smartest thing, as many fires were started because of combinations of resin and flames.
