Looking for a way to live out the bright promise of the Christmas season? Has Rita Cooksey got ideas for you! She's the office manager at Poplar Bluff's United Gospel Rescue Mission, and the "season of giving" is among the very busiest in her year. Not surprisingly, the mission is in search of volunteers to make its 39th annual Christmas celebration a success! Indeed it's a busy time for most everyone, but surely not so much that a body can't squeeze in a few hours to help keep a blessed Poplar Bluff tradition thriving!

Nathan Keck's shufflin' blues style is turning heads. As one critic stated, "Twenty-two year old Keck has a likable - even humble demeanor matched with an on-stage alter ego that could put a young Jim Morrison to shame."
