  • Michael Combs and The Cockman Family Enjoy Long History with Singing on the Mountain


    June 19, 2019. It has always been considered a “rite of passage” when speakers and musicians are invited to participate at Singing On The Mountain, one of the south east’s premiere summer events.

  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: Celebrating National Dairy Month


    June 19, 2019. By looking in most refrigerators these days, one would think that every month is “dairy month,” but according to the National Dairy Council, we are in the midst of National Dairy Month. The month of June became a time to promote drinking milk in 1937 and for many years was known simply as National Milk Month. That all changed a few years ago when the NDC stepped in to promote the cause and expanded the focus, giving June the new name of “Dairy Month.” From calcium to potassium, dairy products — including milk — contain at least nine essential nutrients, which may help to better manage weight, reduce the risk for high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain cancers. Whether it’s protein to help build and repair the muscle tissue of active bodies or Vitamin A to help maintain healthy skin, dairy products serve as a natural nutrient powerhouse. Those are just a few of the reasons to celebrate dairy, not just in June, but all year long. / Read more…
