The Lexington Public Library and God’s Pantry Food Bank are working together to provide meals for children at the Northside branch library.

The program is called Grab and Go Supper Meals. The meals are handed out Monday through Saturday from 3:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon at the Northside library on Russell Cave Road.

“We are re-introducing young people to the Library and providing food when a lot of families are experiencing insecurity in their income in their ability to purchase food, but at the same time, it’s a nice way to provide some regularity for kids in the neighborhood,” said Heather Dieffenbach, executive director Lexington Public Library.

CLASSIC ROCK NEWS:

Dee Snider of Twisted Sister responded angrily to a viral video of anti-maskers playing his best-known song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” as they urged customers at a Florida Target store not to comply with mask regulations.

Snider retweeted their video and wrote, “No…these selfish a–holes do not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause.” He followed it with the hashtag “Cut the [crap].”

Twisted Sister guitarist and manager Jay Jay French will publish a book next year titled Twisted Business. He will also launch a podcast, The French Connection.

Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler will reissue his three solo albums – 1995’s Plastic Planet, 1997’s Black Science and 2005’s Ohmwork — on October 30th.

Whitesnake will release Love Songs, a collection of 15 previously released tracks, on November 6th in numerous configurations including red vinyl.

The Austin City Limits Music Festival will hold an online version October 9th through the 11th playing sets from the archives. Fans can request a specific performance by posting the artist, year and #ACLFest on Twitter or Instagram.

SPORTS REPORT OF SORTS:

Week No. 2 of the high school football season is underway and Friday night, one of the biggest games in town will be Lexington Christian and Lexington Catholic. The Eagles have won two of the last three meetings in the Holy War, including last year’s 43-42 thriller. Both teams understand the importance of this rivalry and they are eager to win bragging rights for top private school in Lexington.

Pro Football … This Sunday, there will be no fans at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, for the game between the Packers and the Detroit Lions. But, fans WILL be able to get tailgate food to take home to their parties with “Gameday to Go” packs, featuring brats, burgers or steaks — and all the fixins’.

… For the first time in 64 regular season games, the New England Patriots will be underdogs this Sunday night when they play the Seattle Seahawks. That was four straight seasons of dominance, with Tom Brady as quarterback. Now that Brady’s gone, we’ll see if the Patriots can continue their winning ways. I’LL WATCH THAT OVER THE EMMYS, ANYTIME!!!

EXTRA STUFF:

IF YOU’RE WORKING FROM HOME, WHY NOT WORK FROM ARUBA?

The Aruba Tourism Authority is inviting people who are working from home to work from Aruba. They’ve launched something called the “One Happy Work-ation” program, allowing visitors to stay for up to three months. And, as an added bonus, Aruba is offering hotel packages which include special rates, complimentary WiFi and even all-inclusive food and beverage options.

Why not take them up on the offer? If you do it right, your boss will never know.
