    The Marion County High School boys golf team battled some of the state's best teams this week and came out with only a few scratches.

  • Weird news lovers rejoice!

    One of my favorite things to do, if I'm not too busy at work, is to take a break and surf the Internet news sites, including online newspapers, for weird or interesting news stories. Many daily papers have a "weird news" or "offbeat" category that includes many of these types of stories.

    Well, last week, I found myself with a few minutes to spare and I decided to surf for little news nuggets of weirdness and man, I hit the jackpot!

  • Make salsa from fresh produce

    I just came in with a basket of vegetables from the garden.

    I have some good ripe tomatoes and some beautiful green peppers, so I'm definitely making fresh salsa.

    I got a decent mess of beans, the purple ones that turn green when you cook them.

    And, of course, I also have a few more zucchini.

    The Fresh Salsa I make is super easy and delicious, great on tortilla chips, or accompanying grilled meat, tacos, etc. I also like it used as a dressing on lettuce for a great salad.
