  • Cooking is a joyous expression of labor and love

    By Ashley Brooks, Cooking columnist

    “When I grow up, my maid will do my cooking!” Yes, that’s what I would proudly and regularly exclaim to my mother when she would ask me to come into the kitchen and cook with her.

    Of course that was just the ranting of an immature teenager with grandiose ideas but very green to reality. Needless to say, I’m almost 35 years old and do not have a maid.

  • A truth about which Jews and Christians can agree

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith columnist

    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I’d never eaten any before.

    “Gefilte” sounds tastier than “ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached.”

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.

  • Mt. Eden man survives wreck on Glensboro Road

    A Mt. Eden man sustained what appeared to be minor injuries when the pickup truck he was driving went off Glensboro Road, rolled at least once and ended up blocking both lanes of traffic.

    Dewight Shular, 73, of Murphy Lane was apparently headed west when his pickup swerved into the ditch line, skimmed several trees and went back into the road.

    The wreck occurred near 3415 Mt. Eden Road.

    Shular, who appeared to have a small trickle of blood coming down his left cheek, was otherwise OK after being trapped in the pickup for about 45 minutes.

  • Lessons from Little League

    There can’t be too many days better than Opening Day.

    And when you add the words Little League to that title it’s even better.

    As I snapped pictures and chatted with a few of the people attending Saturday’s ceremony, I could not help but think back to the day when my own Little League coach came to me and said, “Get a catcher’s mitt. We want to try you back there.”
