  • Kitchen Adventures: A healthy pizza that actually tastes good too

    After last week’s bacon-wrapped treat that was yummy but totally unhealthy, this adventure is more on the healthy side.

    Often, when a recipe says it is “fit and tasty,” I find it’s neither. Usually, when something is labeled as “fit,” you have to give up some of the taste, and if it’s labeled “tasty,” it really isn’t all that fit.

    But, if the recipe is correct on the calorie count, this one is both.

    What makes this pizza great is fresh ingredients and using other ingredients in moderation.

    Maj. Gen. Jefforey Smith did not sugarcoat his message Tuesday to an engaged crowd at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center, saying the deactivation of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team will reduce the post’s troop strength to pre-9/11 levels, making up less than 1 percent of the Army’s staffing for the first time in years.

  • Birth center in E'town denied by state

    A legion of supporters of a proposed Visitation Birth & Family Wellness Center expressed outrage Tuesday at the state’s decision to deny a certificate of need for the facility, which would have provided a birthing alternative to low-risk mothers in a home-like setting on Ring Road.

    Mothers said they are being relegated to a home birth or hospital birthing experience because the state refuses to recognize the desire for such facilities.
