  • Just a Pinch

    By Janet Tharpe

     “No self-respecting Southerner uses instant grits!”

    Ahem, I beg to differ. This line from the film “My Cousin Vinny” may have made the legal case for the lead character, but it doesn’t hold water in my way of thinking. 

    I also take goodnatured issue with the notion that Northerners aren’t able to “get” this A.M delicacy. 

  •  There I was, sitting at my desk, writing a story on deadline and sipping from a tall cup of iced coffee, when I heard a comment that turned my head. 

    “Chris, I just have to tell you that I can’t stand iced coffee,” said my coworker, and occasional chef, Greg Summers. “Hot coffee is where it’s at. I’ll never figure out the appeal of that cold stuff. I just don’t get it. Coffee is ’sposed to be hot enough to take hair off a hog’s back.”

  • Wendy Winn knew from the time she was a little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up – a performer. 

    A 2012 graduate from Andrew Jackson High School, Winn was part of the art-focused curriculum and had shown a gift t for music all through her school years. 

    Now a sophomore at Belmont College in Nashville, Tenn., Winn is studying commercial voice with an emphasis in music business and vocal performance in order to continue to pursue her dream of a career in singing. 

  • Rita Vogel, the new director for the three Lancaster County libraries, envisions the library system becoming even more of a valuable resource for information and connections, assisting in the advancement of the people of Lancaster County.

    “I want people to see the library as a place where they can find reason for hope,” Vogel said. “I would like to train people to see what good information we have for them to use at their fingertips.”

  • Do you remember the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctors away?” 

    Well, studies in science laboratories across the world have proven this very well-known slogan could very well be true. 

    One apple contains a very large number of phytochemicals known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and asthma. 

    Also, adding an apple into your diet could also help lower your risk for diabetes.
