Come enjoy holiday cheer at The News Center caroling With the help of some local vocal groups, 6News, the Journal-World and World Online will be tuning up for the holidays on Sunday on the steps of The News Center. Area residents are invited to join us on the south steps of our building at 645 N.H. for some caroling and hot cider from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Three singing groups will lead the carols. We’ll also be collecting nonperishable food and cash donations to benefit the Emergency Services Council. Those attending also will have the opportunity to sign cards and send holiday greetings to National Guard personnel who are away from home while providing security at Kansas City International Airport. After The News Center event, carolers can walk around the corner to Liberty Hall to enjoy a free holiday concert by the Lawrence City Band. We hope to see you there! _________________________________ County commission: County to look at extending sand dredging work permit Douglas County commissioners Monday will consider whether to extend a permit to Kaw Sand Co. to dredge sand along the Kansas River. Kaw Sand has asked that its five-year permit be extended without a time limit. Under this proposal, the permit could be reviewed if a violation occurred. Sheila Stogsdill, assistant director of planning for the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Office, said the staff would recommend a temporary permit extension but would like to study the issue further before deciding on a permit without a time limit. _________________________________ Religion: Church Nativity event brings Bible Christmas story to life A production made up of wild animals and a live cast of characters will bring to life the Nativity scene. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Dec. 22 at Clinton Parkway Assembly of God, 3200 Clinton Parkway, visitors will be able to view live animals and a cast of shepherds, wise men, Joseph, Mary and Jesus in a stable on the front lawn. There is no charge to view the Nativity scene. Hot chocolate will be served free to visitors as Christmas gifts from the church’s congregation.
