As Thanksgiving stares us in the eyes like a big turkey on the chopping block, we will have many good things cooking in our kitchens and on the streets in all of our communities.

Cooking Contest

Again, I would like to thank all of the participants of the first-ever Tasty Temptations Cooking Contest held at Preston Foods on the eve of Tuesday, November 9 at 6:00 p.m.. We had so many participants this year, that it definitely exceeded our expectations. I would like to personally apologize to all of our contestants who waited upwards of two hours for the process to conclude. All things considered, we know exactly what needs to happen next year to expedite the judging process and accommodate such a large crowd. That said, considering this was the first year of the contest, we were very impressed with the overwhelming response. We knew we had great cooks in this area, and we appreciate all of them interactively sharing their recipes to make everyone's holidays fun and eventful. We certainly hope you'll enjoy the 32-page 2010 Tasty Temptations cookbook inserted in today's Fillmore County Journal.

Non-profit organizations

As we look back on the recent mid-term election, some of us may look forward to what changes in office will bring to our economy.

Truth be told, I think our collective politicians at all levels have less control of our situation than we sometimes give them credit for. They are in charge of shaping the economic and social structure of our government's policies and planning, and their party-aligned polarization seems to keep them from making any significant change that would ever be deemed common sense. After all, common sense isn't that common.

So, what can we control?

I constantly have to reel myself back in from observing the big picture and think about my own personal influence on my immediate surroundings.

From my experience, I would suggest all of us consider donating to a cause like the Salvation Army, the United Way, the Fillmore County Food Shelf, Relay for Life or a local service organization like the Lion's Club. There are so many local non-profit organizations that serve so many needs in our community.

And, the reason that I believe it is important to support these organizations is because they can undoubtedly make our dollars go further than any politician. Selflessly, .....

Both the Democrats and the Republicans are set to gut Social Security(SS) for the young of the nation. I say for the young because they know seniors love Social Security and would vote them out of office so their changes won't affect seniors collect .....
