Can you feel it? We're only one week away from the holiday upon us. To make sure the rest of Thanksgiving goes without a hitch, we have four nifty gadgets I find to be most helpful for the most common cooking needs for a Thanksgiving meal. These tools are of course also helpful outside of Thanksgiving, so acquiring these won't feel like a waste of money.

This week I was called to jury duty. I’m geeky and I actually enjoy the process of government. For some reason I’ve felt busier than normal and did not really feel that excited about this opportunity. Dutifully, I showed up at the courthouse before 9 a.m. on Tuesday as required of me. Yes, jury duty is required. From my search on the internet, a person can be fined for being a no-show.

Halloween has been a time honored tradition since the founding of our community in the 1850’s. That tradition continues this coming Monday night when the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce hosts a “Trick or Trunk” downtown.

I was raised in the village of Rapids City, Illinois. A map dot that was maddeningly quiet for a teenager. A visit home in June confirmed little had changed except my age.
