    Where did your freedom come from?

    Some will say it is a gift from God, like the rights he gives you as natural, free citizens.

    His 10 Commandments and Lord's Prayer have pointed you in the proper direction.

    Apparently, it has taken many conflicts and wars to maintain our freedom.

    On Dec. 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor, America lost 4,522 dead, wounded and missing. American had time to retool for war then, but not now. It is a nuclear age.

  • Live versus live-cut for Christmas

    Live or live-cut...that is the question for this year's holiday tradition of decorating an evergreen indoors for Christmas. You may think that you are being a better environmental steward by purchasing a live tree; not necessarily.

    Live-cut Christmas trees are a 100 percent renewable resource that is reusable, recyclable and biodegradable. They are an American product, farms employ approximately 100,000 people each year; and one acre of planted Christmas trees provides the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people.

    Bre Elder led the Lady Knights with 22 points. Makayla Epps added 14 and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers chipped in 11. Dee Johnson led the defense with 12 steals.

  • Freeze some cookie dough for the holidays

    During the holiday season, I like to have cookie dough already mixed up and in the frig, ready to pop in the oven at a moment's notice when friends stop by.

    Who doesn't like warm homemade cookies? My grandson Owen.

    Right now I have sugar cookie dough in the refrigerator, because it's so versatile and can be dressed up with colored sprinkles, chocolate icing, etc. Peanut butter cookies are also great for this.

    When five coon hound-shepherd mix puppies arrived at the Marion County Animal Shelter in August, Vickie Hazelip knew she had to do something.
