Photo Gallery, Story: Kindergarten students offer their ideas on how to make Thanksgiving dinner.


NEW CASTLE — Nadine Mezan

April Ammons — First you take the wrapper off. Put it in the microwave, then in the oven, then cook for two hours. Take it out and eat it, then put the rest in the fridge.

Tori Atkins — You go to the farm and get a turkey and then you pluck him. Put him in a pan and cook him at 80 degrees for three hours. Take him out, put him on a tray, put him on table. Cut him up and eat him.

C.J. Conner — Put turkey in the oven. Put it in a bowl. Push it down. Cook it. Eat it. That was quick.

Conlan Davis — Grill the turkey, stuff it, squirt it with juices and that’s all.

Marlee  Guthrie — Clean turkey out real good inside and out. Add plenty of stuffing, rub butter all over outside of turkey. Add small amount of salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for several hours, basting constantly. Bake until done button pops out.

Maelee Hill — So you take a turkey, add a little butter, flour, sweet potatoes and stuff it with ham (I like ham on my turkey). Cook for 20 minutes.

Sami Jo Kramer — Pick its feathers, wash it, cook it, eat it.

Abi Kuth — Put Reese Cups on it and cook it.

Michael McCosby — First shoot it. Cut it. Warm it up. Eat it. And then get some dessert.

Matthew Shaffer — Getting a turkey is easy. You can go to the store and buy one or you can shoot one. Bring it home and put it in the dishwasher. Then put a cherry on top, oil and vinegar, peppers and carrots on it, then cook it for eight hours and 10 degrees.

Kaylee Shaner — Bake it at home on your stove for 12 minutes. Then take it off the stove and cut it and eat it.

Alyssa Sherman — Daddy shoots turkey, takes stuff out, then put in oven for 10 minutes.

Mack Shevitz — Go hunting with Daddy and have Mommy cook it. Then I get to eat it.

Emmy Tinstman — Poke a hole in it. Then you put it in the oven for five minutes. Then you let it sit out. Then you eat it.

Jayme Weisenstein — I don’t know, but if you ask Daddy, he’d say to deep fry it. Hopefully, he’ll do it at Uncle Brad’s. I don’t want him to burn down our house.

Mariska Zias — Love, stuffing and clean it out. Bake in in the oven.

Sam David — Roast it! Set up the table and eat the turkey! Oh, and tear off the skin.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
