What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Second-graders share their instruction for cooking at turkey.

The centerpiece of any traditional Thanksgiving meal is, of course, the turkey. Again this year, Crittenden County Elementary School second-graders share their instructions for cooking the bird. Some more non-traditional preparation methods for the customary entree suggested by the 8- and 9-year-olds include stuffing it with mashed potatoes, decorating it with slogans supporting local sports teams or serving it with a side of a variety of cookies.
