Local Matters



I have always loved Thanksgiving. The glorious food filled with my favorites – the Taggart’s duck, my sister Katie’s creamed corn, my grandmother’s ambrosia, dressing and gravy plus my fave pies ever, pumpkin and pecan.

The Way I See It

As another Thanksgiving is upon us all, do we truly count our blessings on all that has happened the past 365 days? Granted, there may be some days that we questioned what was going on, but surely there are days that made us feel thankful, right?
