  • These chilly night I find myself looking for soup recipes. I try new ones every year, but more often than not, I go back to the same old favorites. Here are two of them.

    The first one, Sausage-Bean Chowder, is a long-time favorite of my family. It smells absolutely wonderful when it's cooking and is really delicious. It tastes even better the second day. My dad used to like this soup so much he requested it for a Christmas present one year. I made and froze 4 quarts, and he carried it back to Illinois in a cooler, where he rationed it and made it last a long time.

  • Some say that the biggest shopping days of the year are the weekend after Thanksgiving. Here are some suggestions for less stressful times after this weekend.

    During the holiday season, people often throw caution to the wind and become impulsive buyers. After all, there are parties that require decorations, favors and specials foods. The desire to give gifts often extends to a long list of co-workers, friends and family.

  • Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers. In 2007, lung cancer will account for about 15 percent of all cancer diagnoses and 29 percent of all cancer deaths.

    It is the second most diagnosed cancer in men and women (after prostate and breast, respectively), but it is the No. 1 cause of death from cancer each year in both men and women.

    Because lung cancer can take years to develop, it is mostly found in older people. The average age of a person receiving a lung cancer diagnosis is 69 years.

  • Taylor Regional Hospital will offer the class "Kids Hurt Too - Helping Children Cope with Loss," on Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to noon.

    The class will take place in the TRH Learning & Resource Center at 125B Kingswood Drive and will be taught by Cynthia L. White.

    This workshop is for nurses, doctors, social workers, counselors, parents and other adults who are interested in gaining knowledge and skills in how children grieve and how to help them cope with loss.

  • The Holiday Helpline will be open again this year to coordinate local charitable giving during the Christmas season.

    Organizers of the helpline say the idea is to make sure that no one is overlooked, while at the same time preventing duplication.

    The Holiday Helpline will be open for calls from 1 to 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Dec. 7. All calls need to be made during that time.

    The telephone number to call is 469-1369.

    Organizers said they want to emphasize that the helpline is for families who would not otherwise have Christmas.
