    Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate

    it by giving the light of love to those who need it most,

    states Ruth Carter Stapleton. Community High Schools

    Key Club definitely represents the bright light of love

    around Christmas time. Through Operation Christmas

    Child, a nonprofit organization bringing Christmas gifts to

    children in poverty, Key Club is trying to make a

    difference in the local and global community. By sending

    out shoe boxes packed with toys and goodies, children all

    around the world will be able to experience the loving

    spirit of Christmas. This season, Key Club has packed

    over nine boxes full of gifts!

    You never know what kind of impact you can make

    on a child, explains Key Club Sponsor, Mandy Beech.

    Something as small as a teddy bear or a toy car can have

    a life changing impact on someone. I think its amazing

    that people take time and resources out of their busy lives

    to help children in need!" If you would like to help out, go

  • How would you feel if you were in Walmart looking around for your new Halloween decorations, but you couldnt find them because you kept running into Christmas trees, bows, wrapping paper, and all of those other classic Christmas decorating supplies? It seems that Christmas decorations are being put out earlier and earlier, showing that stores are forgetting that there are other holidays before Christmas, including Thanksgiving and Halloween. We even catch ourselves humming a Christmas carol in the middle of the year. This June, Hobby Lobby already had their Christmas decorations up, completely skipping the Fourth of July, which, in my opinion, is just preposterous. If it werent for our country being a country, we couldnt even celebrate Christmas. Now, dont get me wrong. I love Christmas! I love celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, drinking hot cocoa by the fireplace, and eating big meals with my family. It just seems that some people push Christmas to get here sooner because they want their presents faster and become ungrateful. People can get very aggressive on Black Friday just because of gifts. I mean, really people? Are we turning into a society that forgets what Christmas is really about? Personally, I believe that Christmas decorating should come after Thanksgiving. My family always decorates our house on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and it is still up long enough to feel that we are in the Christmas Spirit. Some studies even show that people get tired of all of their Christmas decorations before Christmas because they decorate so early. All in all, Christmas decorations should not come out of the attic until after Thanksgiving.

  • A lot of things in life start out as a hobby or simply just an interest. Sometimes our simple interests turn into things that we become very passionate about. For some, it could be a sport that the person grew up playing, a vehicle that they put a lot of time and money in, or a skill such as acting and performing or painting and drawing. Whatever it may be, we all dream of being as successful as possible in our interest. For Carter Eaves, he achieved one of those goals that a person shoots for. Carter went to the FFA Nationals for a type of dairy showing; however, in order for Carter to get there, he had to first show at the state level. At the state level, Carter received a first place award that certainly qualified him for Nationals! Nationals was held in Indianapolis, Indiana at several different venues such as Lucas Oil Stadium, Indiana State Fairgrounds, and Indiana Farmers Coliseum. Carter was provided cows from Indiana farmers to show, which was an honor in itself. When it was all said and done, Carter placed first in his division and sixth overall, which includes qualifying contenders from all across the country! Congratulations Carter on a wonderful accomplishment, and best of luck on many more to come!

    Community High School FCA/FCS recently completed their annual Canned Food Drive. Over a two week span, enough food was raised to significantly help eight families in need. Its always a blessing to get to share with people in the Community! states FCA/FCS Sponsor Kathy Gregory. The main thing with the Canned Food Drive is that we want people to know that we are thinking about and genuinely care about them. Students donated a multitude of items ranging from peanut butter to mashed potatoes to spaghetti sauce. The food drive counted for class competition points, as well, with Juniors coming in first, Freshmen coming in second, Sophomores in third, and Seniors in fourth. The Canned Food Drive is always a special event at Community High School. Helping others by spreading Gods love is the foundation of FCA/FCS, and the selfless giving demonstrated during the food drive is a good reflection of FCA/FCSs motives. This event always represents the loving heart of others that truly makes this place a COMMUNITY.

  • Chess Pie is a Southern delicacy with a simple recipe but has kick! The recipe includes a simple filling of eggs, sugar, butter and a small amount of flour. Now for the kick, you can add flavors such as, vanilla, lemon, and chocolate. If you ever thought about getting creative, though, there have been times people have made blueberry, coconut, snickerdoodle, strawberry, orange, and red velvet versions of Chess Pie.

    Though the origin of the name, Chess Pie, is unknown, there is a lot of folklore surrounding the name. The most probable explanation, however, is that since the Engli
