Today's Features

  • Winter is officially under way, that is, as of Dec. 21. When the threat of snow is forecast everyone starts thinking about having soup on hand for family dinners through the long cold months.

    While writing my cookbook, the publisher let me know that it was too long, especially the cake chapter — imagine that. As I shortened the cake chapter, I also had to cut the soup chapter completely, but today I have some recipes from Taste of Home and Family Circle magazines and some I found on the Internet that sound tasty.

  • Being born and raised on a dairy farm had a great influence on Upton resident Chris Hines, who pursued his passions of working and fishing as he got older, overcoming obstacles along the way.

    Hines is a professional fisherman, a city councilman and a business owner.

    “From a young age, I knew what hard work was,” said Hines, 38. “That was something instilled in me at a young age.”

  • New Year’s has passed and those who made New Year’s resolutions probably already have given up on them. Most people who make New Year’s resolutions do it because they feel social pressure. They don’t set goals because they are fully committed to the hard work of goal setting.

    If you are serious about reaching an important goal and are willing to do the hard work to reach that goal, you will want to use a different process. You do not want to use a simple New Year’s resolution to set and meet a goal.

  • At just 17, Bob Bailey lived through the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Now at 88, it’s a day he has never forgotten.

    He was only 16 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. His father vouched for his age so he could enlist before he was old enough.

    Bailey was stationed at Hickam Field, adjacent to Pearl Harbor Naval Base. A wire fence was all that divided the two. He used to go across the fence to Pearl Harbor to buy commodities because they were cheaper.
