  • Lemonade War becoming tradition at Emma B. Ward

    In only its second year, Emma B. Ward Elementary’s Lemonade War is quickly becoming tradition.

    Fifth-grade students read the book “The Lemonade War” by Jacqueline Davies during summer break. In the book, a brother and sister make a wager on who’s stand can sell the most lemonade.

    After discussing the book and taking assessments, the fifth-graders, split into groups, were given the task of creating their own lemonade stands and advertising campaigns, all in an effort to raise the most money and be crowned the winning Lemonade War team.

  • Wrong on school board, right on vehicle taxes

    Column as I see ’em …

    When I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to admit it, and when it came to my prediction that the board of education wouldn’t grab all it could in additional revenue, boy was I wrong.

  • These basic car care tips will keep you safe, save you money

    Whether you’re a car buff or you view your car as just a way to get from point A to point B, it’s important to have a general understanding of your vehicle’s maintenance needs.

    Preventative maintenance is one of the most important ways that you can save money and keep your car running for many years to come. Most preventative maintenance will cost you nothing other than a little bit of your time.

    It’s not too late to give your college-bound son or daughter a review of preventative maintenance. Your car may need maintenance as well.
