KENT — The Kent Memorial Library became the battleground for the Cupcake Wars on Friday, March 15 (when the Region One schools were closed for teacher workshops). 

Eleven hopeful — and artistic — contestants brought undecorated cupcakes and were given a bounty of decoration material to create their dream cupcakes. 

Piping bags were filled with a rainbow of colored frosting choices. 

There were candies, sprinkles, marshmallows and more, all available to be used in any and all combination — and indeed they were.

So I will be very happy to put on waders and stand in a frigid river, waving a stick around to no apparent purpose. It beats the alternatives.

corya@millertonnews.com

Zumba, the newest exercise craze, might just be the most well-known unknown fitness program in the area.
For those unfamiliar, it’s a combination of Latin and international music with dance, a hard-core workout where the goal is to not realize you’re actually working out.
Started in the 1990s, Zumba has quietly grown into a massively popular class. The most interesting aspect of the program might be that just about everyone who knows what it is has enrolled in a class.
