Quilt workshop planned

A Quilt Workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. until noon and from 1-3 p.m., on Saturday, Dec. 16.

The workshop will be held at the Reeves County Extension Office.

Bring that quilt you haven't finished, your own lunch and a friend (if they have the time to spare).

Tips help survive holiday stress

Although the holidays are known for bringing people together in the spirit of joy, cheer and goodwill, they are also recognized as the most hectic time of the year. People are rushing to get somewhere and then are stuck in long lines to buy presents, food for the holiday meal or just to get to their final destination. It's no wonder that frustration and tension are becoming synonyms for year-end celebrations.

It happens to the best of us. Nonetheless, it is important to practice safety when you're behind the wheel. Stressed drivers with sore feet and spent pockets can lead to a holiday tragedy, when not concentrating on the task at hand. Progressive Insurance provides these tips to all commuters out on the roadways this season.

Going to grandma's house:

It's best to leave early, allowing more time to reach your destination.

Make sure everyone has had something to eat and drink before a long drive. Hungry or thirsty passengers can elevate stress levels when you're stuck in traffic.

Do not speed, it causes stress for you and other drivers, more so when roads are congested.

Mall traffic:

Wear your walking shoes. Wherever you go, you will probably have a long hike from your parking spot.

Expect crowds. You can try to dodge some of this by shopping during non-peak hours, such as weekdays.

Don't weigh yourself down with packages. Make trips to the car to store your purchases safely in your trunk.

Parties should be approached responsibly:

Appoint a designated driver and keep an eye on him or her.

Inquire about office policies providing car or cab service for employees attending a company affair. Taking a cab can be the best investment you can make for yourself and others.

Attend gatherings that offer a safe ride home.

Never drink and drive.
