Eastland-Pearl City Wildcatz Beat Galena to Guarantee Playoffs Position

The EPC Wildcatz handled the Galena Pirates easily, winning 34 – 7 in a game dominated by EPC’s offensive line. The first half of the game was rather unremarkable, but when the Wildcatz came back for the second half of the game, the offense was “on fire,” much like the favorite song of the team says – “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” by the band Fallout Boy. Jayden Kempel rushed for an astounding 306 yards, and made 3 touchdowns. It was an evening of victories, as this was the EPC Homecoming game, which involves both...

EPC Wildcatz Set Out to Conquer Galena Pirates, Confirm Spot in Playoffs

Tonight, September 28, 2018, the #1 ranked EPC Wildcatz will play a very important Homecoming football game against the #7 ranked Galena Pirates.

EPC Wildcatz Defy the “Experts”, Again – Hosts Homecoming Game vs. Galena

Most EPC Wildcatz fans have heard by now that EPC is not as strong a team as other teams in the NUIC. In fact, the past two games EPC has been referred to as an “underdog” by many of the sports writers and sportscasters in the area. EPC is proving them all wrong, and this win against Le-Win has a lot of these same writers and television sportscasters scratching their heads. How are they doing this? Until last Friday, Le-Win had not lost a football game since 2016, when they played Forreston in the 2016 Playoffs. Last Friday, EPC...

Taking Steps to Prevent Falls – With Video from National Council on Aging

(Family Features) When you’re young, an injury from a fall may sideline you for a few days or weeks, but a full recovery is usually quick. As you get older, the consequences of falls can become more serious, setting up a sequence of events that can have longstanding implications on independence and health. It doesn’t have to be that way, however. Although falls typically become more common and can be more serious as you age, falls are not a natural part of getting older. In fact, most falls are preventable. Knowing the factors that put you at greater risk of falling and taking proper steps can help prevent falls.  Risk factors for falls in older people include overall health (chronic diseases and physical conditions), environment (hazards and situations at home) and behaviors, such as rushing around or standing on a chair to reach something.  These steps from the experts at the National Council on Aging can help prevent falls: Stay active: Exercise helps increase or maintain coordination and muscle tone that can keep you steady on your feet and your reactions sharp. Walking, gardening or taking an exercise class are just a few ways to keep your heart healthy and your muscles toned.  Manage underlying chronic conditions: The better your overall health, the lower your risk of falls. Chronic conditions like diabetes, depression, osteoarthritis, obesity and high blood pressure...

The Amish Cook – Gloria’s Applesauce Morning

By Gloria Yoder Homemade applesauce is something we were always fond of during my growing up years. Now as a mother, I enjoy putting it on the table for my family alongside any hot dish or giving little bites of this pure goodness to the baby boys.  This year, however, I wasn’t sure when I would find the time to can applesauce; what I had made a year ago was basically all used up. “It’s up to you.” I had told Daniel, “If you’d like to have more applesauce I’m fine if you pick up some apples at Hill Crest Orchard, while we’re in Ohio.” My mother’s cousin owns this large orchard right in the middle of “Amish country.”. They have the most high-quality apples and tastiest cider out there. It’s not just a common orchard, their most unique store is loaded with all kinds of antique decorations, they sell all sorts of fresh fruits, candies, canned goods, and the works. If you happen to be in the area, it would definitely be worth your time to stop in. Matter of fact it’s the same street  that my grandparents live and where my mother grew up. Daniel purchased four bushels of apples at the orchard, some for fresh eating and some for applesauce and cider. I knew there’s no way the apples will just turn into applesauce by themselves...
