Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions yet?

Now that we’re a few days into 2022, it’s time to put them into action!

Most people make the usual resolutions to eat a healthy diet, stop smoking, exercise more and save more.

Whatever yours are, try to stick with them. I’ve been  told that it only takes 90 days to make a change in your life!


McClain County Treasurer Teresa Jones reminds property owners in the county that 2021 tax statements were due before January 1.

With school having resumed after the Christmas break, drivers should be especially vigilant for pedestrians before and after school hours.

Drivers need to watch out for children walking and biking to and from school which includes those getting out of cars in school parking lots which can be particularly dangerous.

We  need to pay special attention to our greatest resource, our children!


Here’s a good recipe for the cooler weather we’ve been having.

White Chicken Chili

1 lb. chicken breast

1 white onion, diced

2 cans white northern beans

1 can whole Kernel Corn

1 10 oz. can Rotel

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. chili powder

½ tsp. cayenne pepper

32 oz. container of chicken broth

8 oz. block of cream cheese

1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream

In a bowl combine salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and stir.

Place chicken breasts into the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle seasonings over the chicken. Drain the beans and corn.

Top with onion, drained beans, drained corn and Rotel. Add the entire container of chicken broth to the slow cooker

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, until chicken is fork tender. Remove chicken and shred with forks. Return chicken to slow cooker. Add in cream cheese and half & half.

Cook another 15 minutes on high.
