Fresh From the Farm- Katie Malich

Fresh From the Farm- Katie Malich

Some holiday traditions are fixed in stone. At my college friend's holiday table I will always find Grandma Eddie's German-inspired green beans, simmered with bits of bacon and onions. Another friend's Central American heritage is reflected in the poultry stuffing made of minced potatoes, ground meat, onions, carrots and spices. In many Southland homes you'll find pots of slowly simmering [...]

An item on the agenda in regard to clarifying the amount of time that public speakers would be allotted to address the council brought a lot of comments. The need for public comment, the right to free speech, all came very close to home. Is there anything else as important? Isn’t time all we really have? There is something [...]
