  • Lonnie offers vegetable casserole with chicken

    During the winter, it is often hard to come up with really good fresh vegetable meals. Tomatoes are never as good as the summer, however, I will buy the tomatoes on the stems because they do taste a lot better to me. I much prefer to use frozen vegetables because they also seem more like fresh vegetables, and frankly, the frozen vegetables do retain more of their nutrients. There are always good ways to cook the frozen vegetables and you don’t have to cook them to death, you can still have them al dente.

  • Rivers in region froze with bitter cold of 91 years ago

    The current winter season has dumped snowfall on the local area more frequently than has been seen in a number of years.

    Unusual snowy and icy conditions have also been experienced in numerous parts of the south during the past several weeks. But the weather is mild compared to the two months of bitter cold Ohio Valley residents experienced between Dec. 8, 1917, and Feb. 7, 1918. Locals walked, skated and even drove automobiles and heavy horse teams across the frozen Ohio River that winter.
