  • The Best: Favorite dip recipes

    I don’t make dips very often, but when I do, it will always be one of my three favorite dips – Bulle Dip, Artichoke Dip or Knorr Spinach Dip.

    The recipe for Bulle Dip, aka Buffalo Chicken Dip, came from Tami Miller who works at Merle Norman in Elizabethtown. She got the recipe from her friend, Freddie Bulle of Glasgow, thus the name, Bulle Dip. This is a real favorite in the newsroom. Several of my coworkers have said it tastes like Buffalo Chicken in a dip form, so feel free to rename it Buffalo Chicken Dip.

  • Orchestra auditions challenge young musicians

    By Alexis Piscatello

    There are plenty of strings attached when you are a principal chair in an orchestra. Students are learning this in The Music and Arts Center for Cultural Learning’s Youth Orchestra this fall.

    For the first time, Sept. 26, the orchestra conducted auditions for the various orchestral chairs, with principal chair being the most advanced.
