  • From punch to pudding, bananas are just great

    By Ashley Fields, Cooking columnist

    So, how do you like your bananas? Firm, with a tinge of green? Yellow, and no spots? Or soft and speckled?

    I prefer mine just barely ripe with no spots. If I’m baking banana bread though, I use bananas that are almost black. The riper, the more stout the flavor. Bananas, like most fruits, are very versatile and add a delicious, sweet flavor to any food or drink. This week’s column is all things banana. I’ve included three of my favorite banana recipes.

  • 50th Anniversary
  • Deficit or cushion?

    By Ben Carlson, Publisher

    Column as I see ’em …

    I’ve spent the past several weeks trying to decipher just exactly what is going on with the fiscal court’s budget that was formally approved Tuesday morning, and have concluded that the county doesn’t really have a $400,000 deficit.

    When one thinks of a budget deficit, what comes to mind is not having enough money to meet one’s obligations.
