    School project ends with healthy meal

    Education is a continual process and learning takes place all the time. One of the lessons Editor Don Whitten didn’t expect to be learning from the seventh-grader in his household, however, was healthy cooking and eating. A school project produced a meal of corn, sweet potatoes and, yes, buffalo that was both healthy and tasted good. (May 17, 2010, Page 4A)
