Good nutrition still
possible for today’s busy lifestyle
"The news is full of
conflicting ideas about what is good for us to eat.
But despite the confusion, what we eat and don’t eat really does make a
difference to our health,” says Robin Rinker, director of nutrition services
at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital. “Good
nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated.
It doesn’t mean you have to plan an elaborate meal, though it does take
some thought and preparation. You can
‘grab and go’ and still eat nutritious foods.”

Landmark Joins Old Route 66 Collection
2, 2000] Although a
Middletown landmark is gone, folks who miss it will soon be able to see it
restored to all its former glory. The small, white gas station with the big canopy that sat on
the corner at 105 Fifth St. in Middletown for more than 60 years will be only a
short drive away. In a few months
it will become a featured attraction in a collection of automobile service
station memorabilia in Springfield.
