COOK OF THE WEEK - VALENTINE'S DAY RECIPES

Valentine’s Day is celebrated by many around the world. I decided with a blizzard going on outside, today might be a good day to research the internet instead of actually visiting someone. Therefore, what you read today mostly can be found in bits and pieces from somewhere out there in cyberspace. It’s a common belief that Valentine’s Day was created by an advertising agency on Madison Avenue in order to sell flowers, chocolate and jewelry. Ad men and women must have run with the ball (or heart), but Valentine’s Day, like Halloween, actually stems from an ancient pagan tradition. But I don’t even want to think about Valentine’s Day as a pagan holiday today as I write this article so I will keep hearts and flowers and the sounds of good food before our eyes and hearts instead. Valentine’s Day is a fun day for children, as well as adults. Way back when I was in school I remember we all brought a shoebox or some similar type box and we decorated it ourselves in school.

GC-B Middle School will go to West Bend-Mallard

Gilmore City-Bradgate students in grades 7-8 next year will be attending school at West Bend-Mallard after action last week (Dec. 18) in GC-B’s monthly meeting. The board voted to add the two grades to its present whole grade sharing agreement with WB-M. The two schools are currently in the second year of a three-year agreement in which GC-B sends its students in grades 9-12 to West Bend. “In a nutshell, academically we have no concerns. We’re very happy with the education the students are receiving,” GC-B Superintendent Ron Bollmeyer said. “Our main concern is that the low numbers generates concerns for our students socially.” “For example, recently we had a girl who said she didn’t want to go out for basketball because she would be the only girl from Gilmore City out for basketball,” Bollmeyer said. “We had a lengthy discussion about all of those things at our meeting last month,” Bollmeyer said.
