    It's lining up to be a relatively quiet weekend before Thanksgiving, but there's still an opportunity to express thankfulness through helping others.


    Saturday is the last day of The United Way of North Central Mississippi's "United We Feed" project, which has been collecting food items to stock 24 local food pantries and programs. The food drive will help those in need not only during Thanksgiving, but in the days and weeks to come. The drive began in October. Donations of both perishable and non-perishable foods are welcome. Among the food items needed are: canned fruits and vegetables; canned meats, stews, soups and chili; coffee and tea; dried beans, breakfast foods and snacks (e.g., oatmeal, granola bars); Jelly (plastic jars only); juices; macaroni & cheese; packaged dinners and pasta. For information on the eight drop-off locations, visit: https://www.unitedwayncms.com/united-we-feed-1.


    The Hitching Lot Farmers Market in Columbus will be open for one day only on Saturday for its annual Holiday Market. In addition to seasonal produce, the market will feature the wares of area craftsmen and artists, so this is a good opportunity to pick up a unique Christmas gift for the people on your list. The market will be open from 8 a.m. until noon at the market site on Second Avenue North and Second Street.


    The Starkville Community Market at Fire Station Park will be open for its usual hours (8-11 a.m.) featuring seasonal produce, art and other items.


    As for college football, the battle of SEC Bulldogs comes after an unscheduled open date last week. Both Mississippi State's game against Auburn and Georgia's game with Missouri were canceled because of COVID-19 protocols that left MSU and Missouri without enough scholarship players to compete under SEC rules. MSU (2-4) is coming off an uninspiring seven-point win over winless Vanderbilt while Georgia (4-2) is still stinging from a surprising blowout loss to rival Florida two weeks ago. Experts don't expect much of a battle, though. Georgia is favored by a whopping 25 points.
