Denmark Piggly Wiggly Employees remember the kids

Mallory D. Biering, Staff Reporter

"Christmas is the season to give. As operator and cooperator, we decided that it would bring us a better feeling to give to a child who may not have as much as we do," said Pamela D. Biering, Co- Operator of Denmark Piggly Wiggly, when explaining the employee toy give away their employees helped to sponsored. Operator Bubba Coker asked all employees to bring gifts to their Christmas Party, and those who came did bring gifts.

Coker said the gifts included toy guns, dolls, tea sets, cars, learning toys, and so much more. The team at, "the Denmark Pig, really pulled together, and I'm glad to know we have such caring employees. It is a great feeling knowing I get to work with people who will take the time and spend a little extra on a total stranger," said Coker.

Biering asked the Denmark Police Department to help distribute to needy families in the Denmark area, and Officer Ransom from the Denmark Police Department arrived to help Denmark Piggly Wiggly employees Biering and Grocery Manager Chris Johnson load the toys in the police car. Ransom and his fellow officers were able to distribute the toys before Christmas day to the children all over Denmark.

Coker and Biering wanted to not only thank their employees for their Christmas spirit this past season, but also, "the community of Denmark and surrounding areas for their support and continued patronage. From our Pig Family to yours, Happy New Year."

Four Red Raider Senior football players play in CSRA Senior Bowl

Jerry E. Halmon, Sports Editor

Four Bamberg-Ehrhardt Red Raider senior standout football players concluded their high school football careers by playing in the second annual CSRA 2013 Senior Bowl on Saturday, December 22, at Augusta Christian School in Augusta Georgia. B-E senior standouts Larry Cann Jr., Demetrius Odom, Devondree Williams and Maurice Duggans concluded their high school careers as part of the winning National Team in a game that featured some of the top senior football talent in the Central Savannah River Area ( CSRA).

B-E head football coach Kevin "Butch" Crosby served as defensive line coach for the winning National Team and B-E defensive coordinator Corey Crosby served as linebackers coach for the National Team. Each of the B-E players made a notable contribution in their own way in their teams win.

Devondree Williams had a key interception at the 32.4 second mark of the second quarter that stopped an American Team drive and allowed the National team to go into the break down by only one point at 13-12. Demetrius Odom had a solid performance at running back and Maurice Duggans had a solid performance in coverage at defensive back.

B-Es Larry Cann Jr. turned in a Clowney like performance at defensive end recording multiple quarterback pressures, caused two fumbles and had two tackles for losses (unofficially.) "It was an awesome trip and opportunity to play one more game," Cann said after the game. Cann said that the best part of the week for him was "meeting new people and learning their life styles" and learning what schools they came from. "Its been a really awesome trip," Cann said. Asked about his performance on defense that some in attendance thought should have earned him consideration for defensive player of the game, Cann just took it in stride: "I played to the best of my ability," he commented adding "hopefully there will be a next game for me in college. I am going to do my best the next time."
