          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.

                  Enjoying when life slows down just a bit

                  Have you noticed the shorter lines – at stores, restaurants, four-way stops, et cetera these last few days.
