Would you like to send a Christmas gift to a child living in another part of the world? The First Baptist Church in Tecumseh is serving as a Collection Relay Center of the Christmas Shoe Box gift distribution for children around the world through Operation Christmas Child discipleship program. This gift distribution program is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, an organization established by Franklin Graham and headquartered in Boone, NC.

On October 11th, a group of people gathered at the First Baptist Church in Tecumseh to hear Ukranian Operation Christmas Child Shoebox recipient Vladimir Prokhnevskiy tell of his childhood. When he was a young boy he was given a shoebox. The items he was impressed with most were dental floss, a yo-yo, and the note and picture of the family who packed the box.

Committee Established to Decorate Johnson County Courthouse & Yard

A committee has been established to decorate the interior windows of the Johnson County Courthouse with lighted candles following a discussion with the Johnson County Commissioners last Tuesday, November 12 about decorating the exterior of the Johnson County Courthouse with Christmas lights like it was done in the past.

Chairman of the Commissioners Scotty Gottula explained to Committee members Elaine Morrissey and Sherry Stephens that even though Christmas lights once adorned the exterior the Courthouse in the late 1980s to early 1990s, Christmas lights could no longer be installed because of the severity of damage that could result from drilling into the mortar and brick which is already very soft and brittle. If anyone knows of another way of installing new Christmas lights to the Courthouse without damaging the integrity of the mortar and brick, the committee would be willing to listen to new and practical ideas.

JCC Thunderbirds to Play Eight-man Football for the Next Two Years

The Board of Education at Johnson County Central Schools voted to go with 8-man football for the next two year cycle. Gabe Meints, head football coach for the Thunderbird football squad addressed the board at the November 13 meeting.

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to first of all thank the board for allowing us to continue 11-man two years ago, as we had a number of players at that November meeting who asked that you allow us to continue,” said Meints. “And here we are two years later, and this year’s team has made history by becoming the team with the most wins during a season in JCC history, finishing 5-4. So thank you for believing in us. Regarding 8-man discussions, the coaches sat down with Mr Bacon (activities director at JCC) several weeks ago to discuss our options.”

Option 1, to stay 11-man, was not feasible because, with losing 12 seniors and a few others, they would not be able to compete.
