  • Just some food for thought

    We were eating pizza — thin crust perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.
    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.
    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • Marching Thorobreds in postseason play

    The Harrison County Marching Thorobreds competed in the first round of the band “postseason” with their baseball-themed show on Saturday, Oct. 22.

    “We were really pleased with our overall performance,” said band director John Merz. “Our closer was electrifying. I’ve never heard the students play that number as well as they did at regionals.”  

  • Her cooking started as a necessity and soon became her passion

    When the back door opens one can’t help but take notice to the old-style kitchen of a Harrison County couple who still recall how it was to live a more simple life.
    On the stove sits an old pickle jar filled with cooking grease, which more than likely contains the remains of fried bacon or sausage.
    In fact, all along the counter tops are jars of preserves and canned goods with year dates on the top, reminding the couple of the hard, intense work that goes into preserving garden delights.
