An annual tradition to “Travel Back to Bethlehem” in honor of the first Christmas, the birth of Jesus, was portrayed at the Beulah United Methodist Church south of Sumner. The event was well-attended as a convoy of vehicles traveled the country road where Biblical scenes were depicted in support of the manger and stable scene at the church. Refreshments were also served. (Photo by Barbara E. Allender)

  
 
Lawrenceville addresses citizens' wishes
  The City of Lawrenceville has answered the pleas of its citizens by successfully addressing concerning issues.
   One such issue which was brought to the Council’s attention at the November meeting was the lack of parking for paying spot holders. This, City Police Chief White explained was improving due to city workers painting the lines and numbers on the parking areas, as well as increased police patrol to enforce the matter. Mayor Don Wagner also explained that as soon as construction would decrease, he was confident that the parking congestion would be better resolved at that time.
