Merry ' by Geri Offutt December 13, Old Glory still waves proudly across our vast great land At Christmas time and throughout each day of the year She’s been through many wars but still takes her mighty stand There’s pain she constantly endures, as she sheds yet another tear. Her constant plea for mercy — when mass killings do take place For everywhere where on this earth on land or at sea Her children do come first —— no matter what their race That peace ful quiet wave is her most ultimate plea. She’s seen the endless lives be lost She watches her people and hears their mournfiil cry And all across her Land we begin to count the cost Old Glory bows half mast in prayer— then breathes a quiet sigh. She cries out to our nation —— her stars and stripes still wave To mend the pain a and sorrow across her precious land That only if our land 0 f the free and home of the brave Be constantly protected by God’s loving and helping hand. As we approach Christmas — we focus on our savior’s birth His constant love and hope — we pray will never cease So Merry Christmas, America, and to all here on earth, Remember Old Glory never sleeps she waves in silent peace. The Western Star and its advertisers take the opportunity in this issue of The Star to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas.

A total of 13 more Tim- berwolf points —— six for the boys (against Kiowa County) and seven for the girls (against Burlington) would have given each of the T—Wolf teams a perfect 6- and—O record at this point in the season. during the past week and the next, employees and officers of the city of Coldwater gathered last Sunday night at the Blonde Grill for good food, and a good time.
