Bosque County 4-H in food challenge

Imagine putting a team of three – five youth on the set of TV show Chopped, and you have a pretty good idea of what went on at the 4-H food challenge contest. On Nov. 23, Bosque County 4-H hosted the County Food Challenge Contest. Each team of 4-H youth was given a set of ingredients and 40 minutes to create a dish and prepare a presentation for the panel of judges. During their presentation, the kids have to explain how they made their dish, the nutritional value of the ingredients, and the function of the nutrients. This contest is a great combination of cooking, nutrition knowledge, and presentation skills.

Never Forgotten

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

Sandwiched between World War II and the Vietnam War, the Korean War is often overlooked in discussions of the 20th century’s massive global conflicts and as such is dubbed the “Forgotten War.” But on Nov. 22, soldiers of the Forgotten War were not forgotten. Bosque County Korean War Veterans were honored with a luncheon at the Meridian Civic Center, hosted by the Bosque River Valley chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. “This is the first time we, as Korean veterans have been recognized,” Clifton’s Trent Knudson said.
