Recipes: French Bread Pizzas

September 23, 2014


With football season in full swing, having an easy, but delicious recipe in your arsenal is always a good idea. You never know when you will be feeding a crowd that pops over to watch the game and besides, when it’s game day, the last thing you want to do is spend time in the kitchen when you could be watching your favorite team.

One of my most favorite go-to menu items are French Bread Pizzas. These little slices of joy are the perfect game day meal. They are simple, fast, easy to make, and everyone gets exactly what they want without having to compromise.

Religion: A Tale of Two Pictures

September 23, 2014


I want to apologize for being absent from the Leader for the last two months but I have been busy with the move of our church to Midway Park and the birth of our fourth grand-child. Seeing that precious little girl only minutes after her birth reminds me of the preciousness and sanctity of life. We are now blessed with three grandsons and one granddaughter.

Lou Grantt


Author brings personal challenges to life in ‘Chrysalis’

Senior Reporter

Writer Lou Grantt knows of which she speaks.

Her latest book, “Chrysalis, A Short Story,” tells of a young woman in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy. Through her journey, she experiences sometimes risky ways to relieve her boredom.

But “Chrysalis,” which is currently offered on Amazon for $1.49, is more than a writer’s fanciful prose. Many of the stories are true-to-life experiences lived by Grantt.
