HOLLENBECK: Homemade jelly is great, but it’s not coming from my house

November 28, 2011

Pass the Smucker’s, please.
That’s a frequent comment at the House of Hollenbeck because homemade jelly doesn’t happen there.
We’re big fans of Smucker’s. We also have a close association with the folks at Bama and Welch’s.
This past summer, during one of my visits to the Farmers Market (which I do love) at the Saline County Courthouse square, someone suggested that I purchase some fresh fruit and concoct some homemade jelly.
He might just as well has suggested that I build a 30-story building. This would be just as likely.

Bryant sweeps Benton in boys, girls

November 23, 2011

Every high school basketball and football team has a rival. Every team has the school that they absolutely dislike because “hate” is too harsh. But, one thing most schools do not have is a rival that is less than 10 miles away. This can only be said about Benton and Bryant.
Year in and year out, both schools bring huge crowds during the basketball and football seasons. Known for the famous “Salt Bowl” at War Memorial Stadium to open the football season every year, both schools have been known to get pretty heated, both on the court and in the stands.
