A Lubbock couple got an early Christmas gift Tuesday, when their new home was blessed Tuesday afternoon. It was part of Habitat for Humanity's home dedication. Stanley and Karen Watts are a visually impaired couple who have been living in a one bedroom apartment. Now they have a new home, thanks to Habitat for Humanity and its volunteers. The home comes complete with new paint, carpet and central heat and air conditioning.

The Lubbock Salvation Army is already getting in to the Christmas spirit. This week families can sign up for assistance for the holiday season. There are a few requirements each person must meet in order to qualify. You must bring an ID, birth certificates for all your children age 12 and under, and receipts proving your basic monthly income and expenses. Applications will be taken at the Salvation Army from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekday afternoons until November 1st. For more information call (806) 765-6355.

One of Lubbock County's oldest homes was dedicated Tuesday as a piece of history. The Isham and Texana Tubbs house is at 602 Fulton Avenue in Northwest Lubbock. The Tubbs family moved to Lubbock County around 1890 and built their home in 1908. Isham Tubbs modeled the home after a sketch his wife, Texana, had admired in a magazine. Now it will be forever preserved as a historical land marker in Lubbock County.
