Good morning Tyler County.
Today is Dec. 7 -- a date which will live in infamy. From what this editor remembers from history class, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, but the war didn't work out too well for them.
On a more upbeat note, Santa Claus will be visiting Phillips Drug store between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday on Wells Street in downtown Sistersville. Honestly, this event is or should be one of the highlights of the season, maybe make it a family tradition. There will be craft projects for children, time with Santa, free pictures with Santa and gift bags.
