  • Know the facts before starting gluten-free diet

    Recent publicity about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet has led to misconceptions about gluten and its role in weight loss.
    As a consequence, many individuals without gluten intolerance are following a gluten-free diet.

  • Garden provides natural help for ragweed sniffles

    We are such creatures of habit. We know what we like and this time of year: chili.
    Chili with meat or beans, or both. Chili with spaghetti or macaroni, or both. Chili with cheese or onions, or both. When it gets chilly outside, we make chili inside. Casseroles or Crock-Pot soups come next.

  • Chewing on news leftovers

    A little known fact about me — I am the queen of leftovers.
    Endless possibilities leave me paralyzed, gnawing on a block of cheddar cheese because I’m too overwhelmed by choice to cook a proper meal for myself.
    Give me an almost bare pantry, and I can whip up something pretty delicious.
    OK, that adjective should probably be “edible,” not delicious.
    Consider this week’s column an exercise in leftovers: the last week’s tidbits layered in an informational news sandwich.
    Great. Now I’m hungry.

  • Sexting

    His youngest sexting case involved an 11-year-old female Anderson County Middle School student, school resource officer Joe Saunier said.
    The 11-year-old’s friend talked to her mom about an inappropriate photo her friend had sent to another boy. The parent contacted Saunier, who arrived at the boys’ house to warn his parents about the incoming image.
    The boy had already messaged a photo back, Saunier said.  
    Saunier said he wished he knew what students were thinking when they sent these photos.
