          A move by many in Scotland to declare independence from the United Kingdom fell short in a vote, but it’s indicative of how regional differences within smaller areas can overflow into politics.

                  Ketchup, cheese key additions for many

                  How did your parents get you to eat things you weren’t sure you liked? Did they, or perhaps you, use ketchup or melted cheese to make things taste better. Editor Don Whitten takes a humorous look at the practice that continues today. (September 15, 2014, Page 4)
