  • Munch away on some homemade granola

    One of the basic rules of life is "don't go to the grocery store when you're hungry."

    Everybody knows that. Right?

    I certainly know it and I try to follow that rule, but every once in awhile, I accidentally end up stopping at the store when I haven't had supper yet.

    When I do that, I find myself buying something I certainly don't need like Krispy Kreme doughnuts, candy or Krunch 'n Munch. Did you know it is possible to eat an entire box of that stuff in the time it takes to drive from Loretto Foodland to the caution light in St. Francis?

    She was diagnosed with Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) on Friday, Nov. 13. Friday the 13th is widely known as an unlucky day, but for Lexi's parents, Kevin and Christy Derringer, that day was a nightmare.
