Meeker Locals

Happy Turkey Day, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Hey, we need all that heavy-duty shopping to work off today’s food intake, right?
A lot of us are still using the Internet the “old-fashioned” way: to look up recipes. This week’s top 20 Google search trends included green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and recipes for cranberry sauce, stuffing and turkey. Thank goodness for the Internet, without it we might be subject to great-aunt Sophie’s rendition of those beloved family recipes.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our local troops stationed in Afghanistan and their families back home during the holidays. Brice Glasscock (husband of Dondi Glasscock) is scheduled to return in December and Ben Gerloff (son of Rod and Suzanne Gerloff) has been transferred to Germany for the time being. Other Meeker residents serving in Afghanistan: Matthew Bohrer, son of Jackie Bohrer; Bobbie Jean Morua, daughter of Otto and Peggy Schmidt; and Tyler Hall, son of Randy and Debbie Hall. Thanks, Peggy Schmidt, for sharing these names and reminding us to think of our troops this holiday season.
