Duncan students set on inclement weather time
For several years, the Duncan School District has based its calendar on an hourly schedule instead of a set number of days. This means the school district has to have 1,080 hours of instructional time, as opposed to make sure students are in class 175 days each school year.
“We go more than 1,080 hours,” Labyer said. “As long as we have 1,080 hours, the schools don’t have to make those days up.”

A Christmas ride to remember
It’s just one of many behind-the-scenes stories that makes The Toy Shop, started by Church Women United in 1944, a special place where magical things happen and selfless, giving deeds create bright, toothpaste smiles each holiday season.
Marlar, Bill Cope, Glen Peterson, Tom Stone, Ron Coon and Joe Norton have become modern day elves, logging hours in The Toy Shop’s busy bicycle room on Ninth Street, assembling two-wheel masterpieces of all sizes and colors for good little boys and girls and adding a dash of love with each one.
Whatever you call him, Santa is loved by all
Boys and girls of all ages, here is some festive poetic verse I know we all have stored in our memory banks. So, feel free to recite along:
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
gave the luster of mid-day to objects below.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.
With a little old driver so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Generous Pho Pho...
Generous Pho Pho?
