  • 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.

  • Time to embrace my pale roots

    Sophomore year - Marion County High School's Valentine's Day dance - that's when it started. "It" being my obsession with being tan.

    I remember asking my mom if I could go to the tanning bed so that I could be tan in the little black number I bought for the dance. She hesitantly said yes, but tried to get one of her friends, Mary Lou Marrett, to talk me out of it. Mary Lou warned me of how bad it was for my skin, how it caused premature wrinkles and how it was highly addictive for some people.

  • Q & A with former athlete Alan George

    Alan George is a 2001 graduate of Marion County High School. He is currently the assistant sports information director at the University of Notre Dame.   What sports did you play while you were at MCHS? What positions?

    I caught passes from Scott Higdon and sacked quarterbacks with David Knopp as a four-year member of the football team. It was also my pleasure to watch Marlis Scott school opponents on the hardwood night after night from the best seat in the house - right next to Danny Marks and Josh McKay.
