  • The giving of gifts is a holiday tradition, but this year Savannah Wright, the eight-year-old daughter of Debbie Dixon and Wesley Wright, created her own tradition.

    It started when Savannah decided to re-gift a Winnie the Pooh children’s table that was new in the box.

    “She looked into where she could give the table to someone who could use it,” Dixon said. “Of course, she found more than one child who needed help at Christmas time.”

  • Often times there are many warnings about the hazards that happen when the temperature turns cold.  But did you know that there are actually some benefits too?

    We tend to be more social. When the nights are longer and colder, people tend to reach out to friends and family more often.  In fact, one study found that people actually talked on the phone longer during bad weather. So if you are stuck inside, call up a friend or family member and chat away!
