In honor of college students’ return, try macaroni and cheese change-ups

In honor of Cowley College classes starting next week, I’m going to present two ways of dressing up average macaroni and cheese. After all, eating like a poor college student doesn’t have to look like eating like a poor college student. Don’t get me wrong — I love mac and cheese. But adding additional ingredients can make eating it less boring. These two easy solutions were used in my home when my brother and I were growing up. To start either recipe, cook two boxes of macaroni according to the directions on the back of the box. Then add these ingredients to enjoy new flavor creations! Monster Macaroni and Cheese 1 can tuna 1 can drained sweet peas Mix ingredients and heat thoroughly. If you have access to an oven, this heats well in a casserole dish on subsequent days for leftovers. Adding shredded cheese also is an option, but keep in mind the oil content of the cheese — the sharper the cheddar, the more likely that it will be greasy when melted. Poor Man’s Goulash 1 pound cooked hamburder 1 jar red pasta sauce 1 can sliced mushrooms Mix ingredients and heat thoroughly. This recipe also tastes great with Parmesan cheese and red pepper seasoning.

Ark City native, former MLB player Darren Daulton passes away at 55

Arkansas City native Darren Daulton died Aug. 6 at the age of 55. Daulton, a former Major League Baseball player, arguably was one of Ark City’s greatest athletes. He was drafted by the Philadephia Phillies in 1980 and played until 1997, ending his career with the Miami Marlins. The Phillies’ success in the 1993 season often is credited to Daulton, who played catcher and was a team leader. His cause of death has been reported as brain cancer, which he had battled since 2013. He had two tumors removed during brain surgery on July 1, 2013, but nine days later, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer that also took the lives of former teammate Tug McGraw and former coach John Vukovich, according to The Los Angeles Times. Daulton’s fans across the nation have been posting about his death since it was announced. “Darren Daulton was a wonderful gift from God to his family and to his hometown, bringing us all great pride and enjoyment as we watched him grow from a youngster into a fine young man and a world-class athlete,” said local resident Donnie Huffman. “Sincere condolences to his family.” Daulton is survived by his parents, Dave and Carol Daulton, of Arkansas City; brother, Dave Daulton Jr., also of Arkansas City; wife, Amanda Daulton, of Clearwater, Florida; and four children, Zachary, Summer, Savannah...
