  • Clerks honored for donor awareness

  • Not everyone’s going to enjoy a special recipe

    We just spent a week of vacation with our son, daughter-in-law and four grandchildren — ages 1, 2, 4 and 10 — in Florida.

    In that group we have some very picky eaters, including the adults. As much as I love them all, I do get a little disturbed because they all eat a lot of snack foods. The general menu for the 2- and 4- year-olds is chicken fingers and French fries, no vegetables. Their mother is trying to get them to eat better, but their habit of eating snack foods that it makes it very difficult for her.
