    It seems this winter is without snow. The winter is coming to a close and still there has been little white stuff. I am ready for spring, as I have blooming daffodils in the yard.

  • Players wants to be at their best when it matters most. The regular season can be gratifying but to play at the highest level in a championship game is sublime.

    Eli Manning has superb physical gifts as an athlete. He had many advantages growing up since his father was an NFL quarterback. Manning was born to be a NFL quarterback.

  • wo of my favorite dessert recipes are Theresa Pickett’s Pumpkin Squares and a recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake I got out of a cookbook years ago.

    Theresa, photographer Jill Pickett’s mom, says she thinks it’s the frosting that makes the Pumpkin Squares so good. I think she’s right, and the Cool Whip in the frosting makes it really light and fluffy. Although I generally start thinking of pumpkin recipes in October and November, I find myself making these at any time of year.

  • Donna Stringer, 53, often can be found in the middle of a squad of cheerleaders. Since 2004, she has coached a Special Olympics cheerleading team.

    She became involved with the program when she worked in a special needs classroom in Hardin County Schools. The first group she worked with included five girls. The person who oversaw the program had to leave and Stringer helped take over the squad.

    Stringer finds her work with cheerleaders exciting. She looks forward to her work with the squad every year and wishes the season was year-round.

  • Before the Christmas decorations are down the Valentine’s Day hearts are out, and we rush from Jingle Bells to Open Hearts jewelry.

    I was thinking about how most of us race around trying to find that perfect card and gift when all of us have the perfect gift — our hearts. And we have that perfect gift all the time, not just in February.

    Is that not where love grows, in our hearts?

  • Standing on the makeshift greens, the third-grader putts the golf ball, attempting to shoot it over a hump, through an opening in a cutout of a bear and into a tray.

    Instead he misses the hole and knocks down the cutout.

    “I killed the bear,” the student shouts, as he walks away from the area and allows a classmate waiting in line to take his turn.
