Breckenridge Library is open to patrons.
The Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce sponsored the annual Spring Fling event again this year from 3 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 26, to encourage Stephens County residents to shop at home instead of going out of town. Shopping local is not just a slogan, but rather an important part of every community's local economy. Surveys indicate every dollar invested locally gets circulated within the community at least seven times before leaving. Local businesses support non-profits, childrens' clubs and activities, civic groups, churches, schools and more.
The United Fund of Stephens County celebrated as the employees at First National Bank once again hit 100% in contributions for the sixth straight year. FNB employees contributed a total of $2,412 in the 2020-21 United Fund Campaign.
Breckenridge Library is open to patrons. Library announces Ongoing Book Sale Monday - Thursday - Library is open from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., (closed for lunch) open 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.
With the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuess being the latest on the chopping block of what is being called “cancel culture,” it is once again worth taking a look at things historically. First, was Dr. Seuess racist? Yes. I have not even investigated the supposedly racist books, but I know he is a product of his time. In fact, if we have to ask of any historical personality, author, singer, actor, or politician before a certain time, if they were racist or sexist, then the answer is yes. Every time, yes. I am not saying they wore a white sheet and burned crosses, but by the standards of our time, every historical figure said or did something that was acceptable at their time but not in ours.
