According to consumerreports.org , "For years, the RAV4 has consistently been among the top-ranked small SUVs. Freshened for 2016, the cabin is quieter; the ride is smoother; it has a suite of advanced safety features; and offers a frugal hybrid version. The energetic 2.5-liter four-cylinder and smooth six-speed automatic returned 24 mpg overall in our tests of an AWD version. The hybrid version gets a terrific 31 mpg overall. Handling is responsive and very secure. Inside, the controls are clear and intuitive. While the XLE comes with the automatic climate control and sunroof, you must step up to the Limited trim to get adjustable lumbar support and the more-comfortable faux-leather seats. Access is very easy, and the rear seat is roomy. For the 2017 model year, forward-collision warning and emergency auto braking are standard."

It’s October and the aisles at the grocery store have been packed with Halloween candy since the end of August. Everywhere you look there’s variety packs, chocolate pumpkins and scary delicious treats. But candy isn’t the only thrilling goodies available this time of year; your local farmer’s markets also offer a bounty of healthy and yummy surprises.
Here are some of my favorite treats that are in season this time of year:
Apples are like nature’s candy. Just add cinnamon and a touch of sugar and you’ve got a dessert that’ll please even the pickiest of eaters. Apple crisp is a favorite at my house, but really you can’t go wrong adding a new apple recipe to your repertoire. Remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Nothing’s better than a perfectly roasted sweet potato. Whether you like to turn up the sweetness by adding a little brown sugar or go the spicy route by adding chili powder, you can’t go wrong with this slow-digesting, healthy carb. They’re even a great addition to enchiladas.
From kale to spinach to collard greens October is a great time to work more leafy greens into your diet because they thrive in slightly cooler temperatures. But these leafy vegetables can do more than just your average salad. They are also a great addition to soups, stews, smoothies, eggs and even pizza. Pump up the nutrition on any of these old stand-bys in no time just by adding a handful of these leafy vegetables.
Pumpkins aren’t just for carving anymore! Pumpkins are a great addition to sweets like muffins, pancakes and oatmeal, but they can also go savory in chili, hummus and lasagna. Don’t forget to toast the seeds!
Adding these fruits and veggies to your menu is a great way to get additional nutrients into your families meal plan to balance out all of the candy from Halloween. Check them out! I hope you enjoy!

Halloween Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip & Spooky Fruit Snacks
1 Large Container Greek Yogurt (unsweetened)
1/4 Cup of Nutella
1 Red Apple
Mini & Mallobits Marshmallows
Black Edible Marker
To make the Spider Web Greek Yogurt Dip you want to scoop out the yogurt into a bowl reserving about 1/2 cup. Mix the 1/4 of Nutella with the yogurt. Spoon the reserved yogurt in a baggie then snip off the corner. Squeeze on a web on the top. We made the spider using raisins, but you could also do this with dark grapes as well….
To make the BOOnanas you want to peel then cut in half. Use raisins for the eyes & mouth attaching with peanut butter…so so easy!
To make the Monster Eye Balls you want to cut the grapes in half. Cut the mini marshmallows in half as well. Press the black edible marker in the middle of the marshmallow then place them on top of the grapes (they will stick)…
To make the Orange Pumpkins you want to cut a couple of clementines in half then press a piece of a pretzel stick in the top….
See how such simple fun food creations can be so cute!
You can see more of her fun Halloween Recipes here.
To make them all you need is one jumbo size marshmallow for each Frankie, Green Grapes, a clear plastic cup (and lid or you can use press and seal paper instead) and a sharpie marker.
- Fill the cup half way up with grapes
- Cut marshmallow almost in half, open it up and stick it to the sides of the cup
- The Marshmallow will be nice and sticky.
- Add more grapes, lid up
- Use your sharpie to draw eyeballs and funny or scary faces on the outside of the cup
They’re a perfect Halloween party snack, so make some for your kids this Halloween, trust me they’ll love them
***If serving to young kids, yes you should cut the grapes first, use your instincts**
The Sebastian County Humane Society has been working toward transitioning into a No-Kill shelter. As of right now, the only animals they euthanize are ones that are ill beyond recovery, too violent to be around or have court orders by a judge. When making this decision to work toward becoming a No-Kill shelter, this meant they would be treating each dog that has heart worms too.
This treatment costs the humane society approximately $1,000 per dog. They currently have 28 dogs suffering from heart worms. This means they are looking at $28,000 to treat the dogs to help them recover and ultimately save their lives. Unfortunately these dogs are not able to be adopted out until they have been treated for their heart worm condition. The Sebastian County Humane Society receives no financial aid from the city, state or federal government or United Way. This fund raising is solely up to the people of our community.
We know how much the Sebastian County Humane Society means to our community and our customers. They are consistently one of our top voted charities for donation contributions.
