Winter Weather – 9 am Notes

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Sydney and Mallory Fallon found enough snow to make a snowman!

At 10 pm, multiple weather sources forecast 1-3 inches of snow for Drew County, overnight.

However, even though snow was reported from all around the county, it seems only  a “dusting” took place; mostly between 8:30 and 10:00 o’clock.

Drew County Department of Human Services will be under the inclement weather policy, Wednesday.

10 Year Old Becomes Christmas Example During “Shop with a Cop”

Monday, December 24th, 2012

During Saturday morning’s “Shop with a Cop” sponsored by Walmart, Monticello Police officers took 23 children and teenagers shopping at Walmart, with $100 to spend on each one of them.

The officer that was with one 10 year old boy asked him,  “Where do you want to start.”  Most kids would answer toys or games, but this child’s reply was, “I want to buy my Mommy something for Christmas.”  He wanted to buy her jewelry, so they went to that department and picked out a ring for her.

Next the officer asked him, “What do you want to get now.”  His reply was, “I want to buy me something to wear for Christmas,” so off the clothes they went.
