A calm, mostly quiet night in the city.

A calm, mostly quiet night in the city.

Tuesday night saw some of Cochran go quiet as people gathered with families and friends to celebrate Christmas. Some spent time in worship as part of their Christmas Eve with several churches holding candlelight or candlelight communion services. Others caught up on last-minute shopping at Dollar General as it was the lone store open after 6 pm.
