OK, so this is probably the firefighter groupie coming out in me, but I would like encourage all of Roosevelt County residents to go support our Portales firefighters on Dec. 2 as they play a basketball game against the Clovis Fire Department to raise funds for Rooney and Moon's Secret Santa program.
I want all of you to become hard-core basketball fans for one day and go scream your heads off at Portales High in encouragement and be annoyingly zealous and supportive.
And firefighters, start your daily jogging and push-ups. Let's take these suckers down! So the zealousness begins. Just trying to get the fan spirit started.
Also don't forget the lighting of the mayor's Christmas tree will be Dec. 1 at city hall in the evening, so go check out some awesome homemade Christmas decorations made by the children of the Portales Recreation Center.
And one final thing, Portales, don't forget to enjoy your long weekend. I know I'm going to.
