It is a cold and snowy Sunday evening. I am finishing up my Spanish homework and getting ready to return to school following the long, relaxing holiday break. It is a virtual winter wonderland outside as a thick blanket of snow covers my front lawn and trees. Winter has finally arrived. It is time for children to enjoy sledding or to hibernate in their homes, reading or playing games. Tonight we had spicy chili and pasta for dinner, a perfect winter meal.
With respect to Amity happenings, on Saturday, Jan. 9 at 7 p.m., the Orange Youth Services will be holding a talent contest at the High Plains Community Center.
