Gary Job Corps Representatives Patty Lankford, center director, and Randolph Goodman, business community liaison, present a donation of $1,000 to the city of Kyle for “Make a Wish” recipient Ash Crain’s “Ash Pavilion” roller hockey rink. Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-a-Wish vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. In the United States and its territories, on  average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. Pictured Kyle Mayor Travis Mitchell, City Manager Scott Sellers, Parks and Recreation Kerry Urbanowicz, Make a Wish Coordinator Jill Skinner and recipients Ash Crain, his mother Lisa Crain and Randolph Goodman of Gary Job Corps.

Black Friday Lowdown

It comes every year, with deep discounts, special shopping hours and crowds of consumers searching for presents for friends and loved ones — and maybe for themselves.
