Mike Sturdivant gives his local picks

Mike Sturdivant quickly learned that he doesn’t do quarantine well. The 2001 McKinley High School graduate is used to be being busy. For six years, he was the regional manager for Hattie Larlham and served as the nonprofit’s representative on the executive boards of several community organizations, including Compassion Delivered Inc., Gigi’s Playhouse, Love the Children’s Ministry and P.A.L. Mission.

5 local wish list items

The holidays are upon us, and that means family get-togethers, parties, shopping and of course, gifting. I always feel weird answering the age-old question, “What do you want for Christmas?” When I was a kid, I would create multiple lists so that I wouldn’t get two of the same gift. Smart thinking!
