Carlee Lehman's ultimate goal is to one day open a restaurant. For her to reach that goal, she knew she needed to learn everything to do with cooking and also about business.

Valentine's Day is a fun day to show people in your life how much you love them. We've come up with four simple ideas to show your college student some extra love.
The Pawpaw is one of the most unique fruits in American history. Indigenous to Eastern, Southern, and Midwestern United States, and cultivated in the Athens County, Ohio, area, it’s hard to believe that pawpaws have been around for generations and were once a critically important source of food for both Native Americans and early European settlers. George Washington is known to have cultivated pawpaws. It’s also been recorded that Lewis and Clark’s famous expedition of the West relied on pawpaws for sustenance when other sources of food failed.
If you’re interested in trying one of the craft beers brewed by Hocking College Fermentation Science students, you can join them from 4-6 p.m. every Thursday and Friday for Star Brick Brewing's Growler Nights at the Lodge. Customers will be able to purchase a 34-ounce glass growler for $6 and fill it up with their favorite Hocking College brew for $8. If you already have a growler, you can bring it in and have it filled up for about 24 cents an ounce.
“Beer is what really caused civilization to occur,” Eric Hedin, specialist for the Fermentation Science program for Hocking College, said. “The people came together to gather the barley to make beers. Civilization and community were formed around alcohol.”
By the age of eight, Maureen “Moe” Michels knew exactly what she wanted to do when she grew up... own her own restaurant.
A native of Painesville, Ohio, Michels passion for cooking was inspired by her mother who was a Home Economics teacher and the fact that she came from a very large family. Her family was so big that a typical Thanksgiving Day dinner at her home required place settings for up to 60 guests.
With Christmas only weeks away, it's time to start your holiday shopping if you haven't already. Many Americans plan their shopping around two major retail events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Black Friday, which is held on the Friday after Thanksgiving, is when retailers will have major in-store discounts. On the other hand, Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving and is when retailers have major discounts online.
