The 26th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic will be held this Sunday afternoon from noon to 4pm at Blessing Hospital's main entrance. As the founder of this event 26 years ago, the staff at Blessing Riemann College of Nursing was kind enough to name one of two new gigantic Teddy Bears after me. He is known as the "Dorsey Bear" and the other is known as "Flo" after Florence Nightingale. This morning I got the chance to meet my namesake in our studios.

The Quincy Fire Department has placed wreaths with red lights on them at all of their firehouses around the city of Quincy. The idea is to have nothing but red lights on the wreath which would mean a fire free Christmas season for homes in the city. Any home fires that occur would cause the Fire Department to change one of the red bulbs to a white bulb. So the goal is to keep the wreaths red and not white.
