McSwain Theatre’s Hee Haw special to usher in the new year with community Dec. 31
Ring in the new year like a resident of “Kornfield Kounty” during the annual Jae L. and Crossover “Hee Haw Variety Show,” a local year-end tradition filled with musical performances and comedic skits. Entertainment begins at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31, at the historic McSwain Theatre, 130 W. Main St.
Like the original television variety show, which spanned 25 seasons from 1969-1993, country music and rural living will be on full display, right down to the pigtails and overalls.
Performers from Oklahoma and Texas will add their personal flair to country favorites during the show. Talent includes Patty Bailey, Jim Miller, Trey Hobbs, Tishia Agee, Donna Marie and the group Red River from Ada; Bailey Rae from Durant; Pat Payne from Ringling; and Sarah Lee from Bonham, Texas.
Performer Jae L. Stilwell said this New Year’s Eve event is good fun for everyone, from youngsters to elders.
“There are good memories linked to this show,” Stilwell said. “It’s a family fun night for anyone who would like to come ring in the new year.”

Follow Your Instinct! Give Blood this Holiday Season

Share the priceless gift of blood donation with Oklahomans in need this holiday season.
Oklahoma Blood Institute encourages healthy adults to “follow their instinct,” and set aside about an hour from their busy schedules to donate blood. The holidays are typically a challenging time for the life-saving blood supply; and one donation can save the lives of up to three area patients.*
Oklahoma Blood Institute will hold a blood drive with Davis Fire Dept. on Thursday, December 26, from 2:00 PM to 6:15 PM at 112 N 3rd st at Davis. Each blood donor will receive a free, limited edition, long-sleeved holiday-themed t-shirt.
“The simple, yet selfless, act of donating blood this holiday season will give patients in local hospitals a chance to spend precious time with their families,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “The cost- just an hour of your time- is certainly less than other gifts most of us will give this season. But there’s nothing that has a greater impact.
Blood recipients have the opportunity to send a message of appreciation to their individual blood donor, anonymously, through Oklahoma Blood Institute’s Thank the Donor™ program.
Every two seconds, someone needs blood, and the supply must be constantly renewed. If donors opt not to take the t-shirt, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary donation to Global Blood Fund for blood center assistance in developing countries.
As the nation’s 6th largest non-profit blood collector, Oklahoma Blood Institute’s donors provide every drop of blood needed for patients in more than 160 hospitals statewide.
It takes nearly 1,200 donors a day to meet those needs. Appointments to give blood are not required but can be made by calling Oklahoma Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or visiting obi.org.
*16-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds and provide signed parental permission; 17-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds; 18+ year olds must weigh at least 110 pounds.

Kudos to the Guthrie Police Department and their work in apprehending the Elf that we all hate to love and love to hate. 😉

Tis the season for merry mayhem.

In tragic news, Eddie Elf was arrested on a charge of Elf Mischief late last night. Police were called after Eddie was found at a local nursing home tuning all the radios to “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.” At the time of his arrest, police say that he appeared to have consumed eggnog WAY beyond the legal limit.

Further investigation revealed that he had been busy all
night. Police suspect him of the following:

Randomly replacing bottles of water with snowman urine

Shorting out a single random bulb in strings of
Christmas lights across the city

Numerous charges of stalking and spying

Snorting snowflakes

Stealing tinsel to support his sparkly underwear side-
business

Bail was set at 300 candy canes and he was ordered to be placed on the Naughty List for not less than 1 year. A very fuzzy green “man” and his antlered dog posted Eddie’s bond within hours.

Police urge you to contact them if you have additional information about Eddie’s nefarious activities.

We love to serve and strive for it to show every day.
