SHERIFF OFFICE RECEIVED MRAP VEHICLE
  Sheriff Nick Weems announced this week that after nearly a year since he wrote the federal LESO grant proposal, his office has received equipment that numerous agencies are longing to   get their hands on.
  The Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, valued at $850,000, is designed to protect military soldiers from IEDs.

COMING TO LINDEN: 'A FESTIVAL OF NINE LESSONS & CAROLS'
AMY SHAFER
Perry County Cultural Arts Commission

  Every year, for more than a century, England's most famous choir gives what is called “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.”
  “What is that?” you may ask. A treasured tradition, the title doesn't give much away and is entirely inadequate to convey the richness and beauty of it all, so let me explain.
  The name came from a Christmas program that first took place in 1880 in Cornwall, England.
  In a temporary wooden structure serving as “church” while the Truro cathedral was being built, the Bishop of Truro put together a musical service for Christmas Eve.
