Today's Features

  • Bruschetta. Thick slices of grilled bread, rubbed with garlic, drizzled with olive oil, topped with tomatoes and herbs.

    Bruschetta. Yum.

    While it’s mostly used as an appetizer or antipasto, it can be turned into a meal if you use larger portions of bread, kind of like an open faced sandwich. 

    This Italian dish is always best when fresh tomatoes are in season.

  • Today’s column features a Squash Casserole recipe given to me by a fellow Cecilia Homemaker, Shepherd’s Pie that was prepared for lunch at the March Cecilia Homemaker meeting and a recipe I found for Sweet Potato wedges.

  • When people need information about the history of White Mills, they usually go to one source, Henry Morrison.

    Morrison has lived in White Mills most of his life. He spends his post-retirement days delving in court house records and pouring over old newspaper articles in the library at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    Documenting the small, storied town almost is a full-time hobby.

  • The myth of Mac computers’ invulnerability against viruses was crushed this month with the report by the computer security firm Kapersky Labs that 600,000 Macs were infected by a nasty piece of malware going by the name Flashback/Flashfake.

    That announcement was followed quickly by another revealing an exploit of Microsoft Word on Macs.

    Another month over half gone, where does the time go? Seems as though a month no more than begins, until it is ending. Hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful weather in our area. We were sorry our grapes got frostbitten the other morning, but everything else seems to be doing alright.

    Hello friends and neighbors, I hope all is well with everyone.

    FAREWELL. The Stephensburg Volunteer Fire Department hosted a dinner in April for the Spencers as a way to say thank you for the years the family owned and operated Spencer’s Market here in Stephensburg.

    For as long as I can remember, there has been a grocery here. The first one I remember was operated by the Pirtles. The Spencers took over for the Terry family and eventually moved to the location on U.S. 62 where the building is now.
