Tickets still unclaimed in Creston Chamber giveaway

The following winning tickets remain unclaimed in the 2013 Creston Chamber Holiday Giveaway drawing: $500 - 959886 (white), $100 - 060745 (white) and 401126 (red).

Winning ticketholders have until 4:30 p.m. Jan. 3 to claim their prizes at the Chamber office. A redrawing will occur Jan. 3 for those prizes unclaimed.

Snow today on Christmas Eve

Creston received about 5 inches of snowfall Sunday assuring a white Christmas. More snow is expected this afternoon and evening with totals predicted at 1 to 3 inches.

WHO13 is reporting temperatures will bounce back Christmas Day as a warm front sweeps across the state with temperatures the rest of the week predicted in the lower 30s and high 20s.

Eight-year driver's license?

Starting Jan. 1, Crestonians will be able to get a driver’s license that won’t expire for eight years instead of five. New legislation is allowing for the change.

However, Stacey Graham — driver’s license deputy in Union County — said not all drivers will receive the eight-year license immediately.

“Starting in January, the DOT will be randomly assigning 5-, 6-, 7- or 8-year driver’s license to equally spread out renewal volumes,” Graham said.

Graham said yearly fees for licensing will not change. It will be $4 per year for a noncommercial license, $8 annually for a commercial’s driver’s license and $2 annually for a motorcycle endorsement.

The 8-year licenses will be issued to those less than 72 years old, because at age 72 licenses shift to two-year renewal periods.
