Oodles of Noodles

When it comes to chicken and noodles, the women of Brandon United Methodist Church take no shortcuts. That’s probably why hundreds will flock to the church on September 28 when the church hosts their annual Fall Supper and Bazaar. It’s a tradition that dates back decades, and despite living in a world with modern conveniences, chicken and noodles the Brandon way means the noodles don’t come from packages sitting on a grocery store shelf or in a frozen food case. Each noodle is formed, pressed, cut and dried by hand. It’s a process that begins weeks before the actual supper, one that involves a dozen or so women of the church. Young and old alike, the process has been handed down through the years, from generation to generation. Perhaps the secret to their success lies in the approach they take, viewing the task of making noodles not as a chore, but rather an opportunity for fellowship.

Each year, the Brandon Methodist Church Fall Supper serves around 300 people. For those who cannot dine at the church, carryouts are gladly welcomed. The menu will include
homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and gravy, squash, green beans, a salad bar and (if there’s any room left) a dessert. The production of a meal this size requires some 200 pounds of chicken and over 100 pounds of potatoes. Don’t expect to find any instant mashed potatoes at this supper! And there will also be noodles. Did we happen to mention oodles of them?
For those scoring at home (and those not wanting to logon to foodnetwork.com for a recipe), each batch of noodles begin with 18 eggs. After a little water, oil and salt and pepper are added, it’s time for the flour. When the consistency is just right, the noodle “dough” is allowed to rest before it makes two passes through a hand-cranked pasta press to attain the right thickness. One final pass through the press ensures the noodles are cut to a standard width. From there, they are carefully transported and placed, noodle by noodle, onto drying racks. Only those noodles that retain their shape and thickness when dry will be cooked for the supper.
The ladies of Brandon United Methodist Church will tell you the labor involved in making the noodles by hand is worth the work. It simply tastes better that way, they note. Judging by the response from the neighboring communities that descend upon the small church each fall for the ultimate in comfort food, they’re absolutely right.

Fall Supper: $8.00 for Adults, $4.00 children ages 5-12, 4 and under Free
4:30-7:30 PM at the Brandon United Methodist Church on Saturday, September 28, 2013

Bazaar will feature locally made crafts, baked goods and produce.

Practical Money Matters – September 18, 2013

Traffic Tickets Can Ruin More Than Your Day
By Jason Alderman
We all know that sinking feeling when you get pulled over for a traffic violation. If you’re lucky, you might just get a “fix-it” ticket for a broken tail light. But what if it was a more serious offense, like speeding or reckless driving? Depending on your driving record, you could get slapped with a sizeable penalty or even a jail sentence, and your insurance rates will almost certainly go up.
Let’s say you absentmindedly ran through a stop sign or made an illegal left-hand turn. You’ll probably know right away how much the ticket will cost, but it could take months before your insurance company receives notice of the infraction and adjusts your premium.
If the suspense is killing you, Insurance.com has a handy tool called the “Uh-Oh! Calculator” that estimates the average rate increases for the 14 most common traffic violations. And, if you enter your age, ZIP code, residence type, marital status, length of time with your insurance carrier and current premium, the calculator will generate a more customized estimate based on your personal data.
Some of the average premium increases are pretty shocking:

Reckless driving: 22 percent

DUI first offense: 19 percent

Driving without a license/permit: 18 percent

Careless driving: 16 percent

Speeding 30 mph over the limit: 15 percent

Failure to stop: 15 percent

Improper turn: 14 percent

Improper passing: 14 percent

Following too close/tailgating: 13 percent

Speeding 15 to 29 mph over limit: 12 percent

Speeding 1 to 14 mph over limit: 11 percent

Failure to yield: 9 percent

If you plug in your personal data, the calculator will tell you how many points will be added to your driving record per infraction, as well as information on the state’s rules for when driving privileges can be suspended or revoked.
Another company, DMV.org, features a “Ticket Fines and Penalties” tool that provides an even more detailed state-by-state analysis of what various infractions can cost, procedures for paying – or challenging – your ticket, how points are calculated, how long it takes to clear infractions from your record, links to local traffic schools and much more.
So, assuming you’re not going to challenge the ticket in court, the damage has been done and your insurance rates will likely climb – what can you do to lower your premium? Here are a few tips:
Investigate whether attending traffic school will erase the ticket from your record.
When your policy is up for renewal, get rate quotes from at least three carriers. Talk to an insurance agent or use an online comparison site – just be aware that not every carrier participates in these sites and make sure you’re comparing apples to apples, since companies often package coverage differently.
Another reason to comparison shop: Insurance companies calculate risk differently, so particular traffic infractions might trigger varying increases, depending on the carrier.
Increasing your deductibles from $250 to $1,000 might lower your premium by 15 to 30 percent.
Ask about discounts for things like low annual mileage, being over a certain age, good grades, vehicle safety features or buying your homeowners or renters insurance from the same company.
The best way to avoid traffic violation-related rate increases is to not break the law in the first place. But if that horse has already left the barn, arm yourself with information about coverage costs and how you might be able to lower your rates.
