Today's Features

  • On a small tobacco farm in Eastview, Rita Wooden’s father put her on a tractor when she was 12 years old. Today, at 55, farming is in her blood.

    “There’s never a time when I feel closer to God than when I’m out in the field on a tractor,” she said. Wooden’s favorite tractor is one she calls “the beast.”

    She once told her sister-in-law she would never marry a farmer.

    “Boy, have I had to eat those words,” Wooden said.

  • Food in the fall often means baking something with apples.

    An apple pie with a big scoop of ice cream is a standard dessert in the fall. But there are variations on the apple pie that are just as delicious and remain as easy as the original. One of my favorite things to eat in fall is caramel apples. When I found a recipe that basically was a caramel apple in the form of pie, I just had to try it.
