Thanksgiving means turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and other great things to eat. All that good food deserves something good to drink. Unfortunately for wine connoisseurs, the decision on what to offer guests can be a complicated one. "I belong to a family that cooks. For 25 years I've been scratching my head trying to determine the best Thanksgiving wine," Bill Kotila, beverage consultant for Busch's Fresh Food Market said. "Thanksgiving is one of those meals that is more difficult to pick wines for because there's so many things going on — from the giblet gravy to cranberry sauce. "The ideal solution is an old French pinot noir. However, those bottles are rare, and if you do find one, you'll probably pay a couple hundred dollars." Kotila …

It was found that the people in this group who consumed around 820 mg of calcium per day had a 31 percent decreased risk of heart attack. …

Cornerstone Elementary student Claire Vander Haagen solicited donations at Busch's in Dexter on Saturday.
My seven-year old daughter Claire, "accidentally' caught the beginning of one of those terribly sad and depressing commercials about animal abuse that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals airs on television. I have never made it through one of the commercials myself and certainly never wanted my girls to see them. Once I realized the commercial was playing, I sprinted to the TV to turn it off, but it was too late, Claire was already crying hysterically about what she had seen. "Why do they do that to them?" she asked through tear-filled eyes. My response was the only thing it could be: honest. I told her some people think they can care for dogs but they can't, or that some people are just not nice. It was the cold …
