  • Rice recipe adds taste of mango, papaya to dish

    My husband loves rice.  Through the almost 40 years that we have been together, he has not missed telling his beloved rice story every time I make rice.

    When he was a boy in South Dakota, his parents would go to town (they lived on a farm) and leave Bob behind with his grandfather. The story goes like this: “I like rice, my Grandpa liked rice and when my parents went to town, he would fix himself some rice in a copper bottom pan, just like the one we have and never offer me any of it. He would eat it right out of the pan. I like rice.”

  • Henryville holds memories for former resident

    I have mentioned in many of my past columns, with very fond memories, of the years we lived in Henryville, Ind.

    Words cannot describe what my whole family feels about the devastation they have gone through, and yet they have picked themselves up and are going forward as best they can. Even though we moved many times when our children were growing up (due to job transfers), our children consider it their hometown.
