    My first week of healthy eating and exercising was a success.

    I worked out and had a smoothie for breakfast every day last week. I even tried a new recipe for something I have never made before, granola bars.

    I would have never guessed these things were so easy to make and now that I see how quick and yummy they are I am excited to switch them up a bit by adding different nuts and dried fruits to the recipe.

  • The following is from Wyatt Shely’s ‘Our Heritage’ column that appeared in Jan. 6, 1966 issue of The Anderson News.

    Even before the Village of Tyrone was incorporated (1879) the people of that community manifested a keen interest in education.

    Though the inhabitants of the valley, now Tyrone, were very few prior to 1850, one of our first schools was on the road leading to Subletts (Shryock’s) ferry.

    One of the Internet blogs I follow, “The Stretch Marks Blog,” is written by a woman in Texas, Melissa Lee.

    She’s beyond hilarious, loves big hair, “The Bachelor,” her crazy family, chocolate and Jesus.

    She writes mostly about superficial stuff, but not really. There’s a depth to her faith that shines through even her weekly “The Bachelor” recaps.

    2016 is here, and for most of us the new year comes with lots of plans and goals … and unfortunately, a few extra pounds.

    This year, instead of backing away from the table and ending up hungry (and not a very happy person to be around), I’ve decided to simply fill the table with healthier foods. I am not going to make the same mistake as last year by beginning a rigorous exercise routine with a hungry belly.
