  • Fill those stockings with homemade goodies

    Food gifts are very popular at Christmas, but it can be difficult for the recipients to get it all eaten before it goes bad. One solution is to give food that can be frozen and eaten at a later time. Two options are cookie dough and pie in jars.

    Terri Cooper and her five children have developed a unique gift for their friends and relatives. Her family enjoys homemade pie, and has to make two to have enough for the whole family. Cooper sometimes makes a large pot of soup and freezes single servings to give to her family members.

    A wise editor once told me that most smaller communities suffer in the area of economic development because their leaders don’t want to become economically developed.
    Sure, to your face, they’ll tell you they want to bring in more business, industry and people to their town — they want to see their city grow. But, when given the chance to move forward and urge economic development, they sit quietly, listening for crickets, and failing to second a motion that could move their city forward.

  • Hoosiers bomb UK; Racers roll on

    Indiana fans rushed the court in Bloomington last week as if Christian Watford’s imitation of Jimmy Chitwood had knocked No. 1 Kentucky from March Madness. The Hoosiers had merely earned a Christmas gift.

    Ho, ho, ho for IU. To witness the jubilation reminded me, in college hoops, the home team should always win. Tom Crean, to his credit, launched into praise for Hoosier fans. Their energy made the celebration possible. In a 73-72 hoedown, they were the Cream and Crimson difference.
