The Rising Sun High School student council has planned a homecoming and activities for January 4 at the Shiner and Jac-Cen-Del basketball game. This is the first homecoming initiated in Rising Sun High School. Each of the four high school classes will select a candidate for homecoming queen this week and the final selection will be announced during half-time activities that night. Invitations are extended to all graduates of RSHS and past Shiner players and cheerleaders.

Orville Phillips of Aberdeen announced this week the sale of his store and hauling operation in Aberdeen to Mr. and Mrs. Dave Kelly of Quercus Grove. Mr. Kelly plans to continue his work as a carpenter in Rising Sun while Mrs. Kelly will manage the store. The store, which will go under the name of Kelly’s General Store will continue operation as usual with Mrs. Annabelle Fisher remaining as clerk. Jerry Chase will also continue driving the huckster route. Louis Kelly will operate the hauling route of the business. Mr. Phillips will keep the fertilizer distributorship and will limit his occupation to farming. He also plans to devote much time to his state representative post.

Rising Sun is showing a festive spirit this year with their many colorful decorations on Main Street and throughout town. Attracting special interest is a huge star atop the water tower at the city utilities office on South Poplar Street. The star measures 20 feet in diameter and is hoisted some 120 feet in the air.

Births: to Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Fischvogt, a son Mitchell Ryan born Dec. 12; to Mr. and Mrs. Willis Henderson, a daughter born Dec. 14.

“Xmas” now generally considered poor usage as an abbreviation for Christmas, was often used as a holy symbol in the early Christian church. “X,” in Greek, is the first letter of Christ’s name.

A marriage license was issued by the clerk this week to Larry Bailey and Marylin Jean McHenry.
