 With goal of going all-local for a month, there are smaller hills you can climb along way 

Angela Glore’s food column is printed monthly.

If you’ve had the chance to wander into Jefferson State Books recently, you may have noticed that Jeff stocks a good selection of food-related reading. He’s got the big names — Michael Pollan, Mark Bittman, Marion Nestle — but also some newer entries into the field. For a month or two starting shortly after Thanksgiving, Jeff was pushing one particular book into my hands every time I walked through the door, so eventually I read it.


House Calls: Eye exam not just for vision

You have probably heard the saying that “your eyes are the windows to your soul,” but have you ever stopped to think about how much your eyes can tell about your physical health?

I went to the eye doctor when I needed a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses and didn’t realize that while he was having me look through lenses and shining lights at me he was actually learning about much more than just how well I could see.


Church Notebook: Tragedies may seem unfair, but perhaps God is saying something

Somehow, it hardly seems fair.

We’ve been having some warm, beautiful days while other parts of the country are having one disaster after another.

I caught part of an announcement for a film the other day, the title asking “Where Was God” when all this was going on. And reference was made to a school that was taken out by a tornado a year or so ago, as people were coming to deal with their anger at God for letting it happen.

Our local 4-H’ers graced the red carpet on April 5 during the “Red Carpet Under a Starry Night” 4-H Fashion Revue, illuminating the young models who showed off their clothing entries at the Addie Meedom House to an audience of family members and residents.

This year’s show featured everything from reversible aprons to satin and lace dresses. The participants in each division constructed and/or purchased a garment and then modeled it. Our primary members also participated by making their own styling duct tape vests.
