Jessie’s Jottings

Saints’ win over Giants was superb
Jessica Gafford.jpg

Before this column goes any further, “Who Dat?!”
OK, now that has been stated, how about the New Orleans Saints? People thought that they would possibly win the Monday night game, but to say that they won this one would be an understatement.
The 49–24 win over the New York Giants was a surprisingly large point margin, seeing as the Giants are not a bad team.

A Christmas drama about family relationships and holiday magic will unfold on the stage of the Dixie Center for the Arts on Thursday-Sunday.
“Kringle’s Window,” written by Mark Medoff and directed by Nancy Wallace, starts off with a little family conflict as two parents are separated, and the older daughter causes chaos.
“There are two daughters,” Wallace said. “The older daughter, who is around 13 (played by Neesha Siriwardane), and her friends decide they will tell the 8-year-old younger sister (played by Sarah Katherine McCallum) there is no Santa Claus. Then it is how the parents deal with helping the little girl feel OK about this. At the same time, there is a person (played by Wallace) who comes into their life and sort of does things behind the scenes that makes things happen. She is sort of magical.”
