Nano proclaims granddaughter Kennedy’s Flair
Peggy Cooke

Happy Spring Break and Happy St. Patrick’s Day, combined. Hope you enjoy both.


The main job of being a grandmother is to brag on your grandchildren— look it up if you don’t believe me—so that’s just what I’m about to do.

Granddaughter Kennedy is the featured artist in the Spring edition of Flair magazine.

Flair is a beautiful quarterly magazine, promoting, pr imar ily the Brazos Valley area, including Bryan/ College Sta- tion and Huntsville and outlying areas, sometimes venturing into Milam County and other smaller places.

It tells a little about each place, often telling of the activities of interest held in those places and sometimes feature stories about people in the area.

It features a different artist and theme in each edition and displays their art throughout the pages.

The publisher, Sherry McCartney, and editor, Er in Casey, attended our annual Tejas Book and Art Fair last year where Kennedy had a booth and displayed her work. They asked about featuring it in a future issue and this is it.

Grandmother likes it and I think you will too if you can find a copy. We do have some here at The Reporter, there are some at the Chamber of Commerce offices at the Rock House and they are free on a first-come, first-serve basis.

There are even some at the Lucy Hill Patterson Memorial Library to look through.

Kennedy is living her dream of attending the Savannah College of Art and Design, in Savannah, Georgia, natch.

She’s majoring in illustration and concept art with a desire to work in both traditional and digital media in film and video games. Her longtime goal is to own and direct her own art studio.

We’re very proud of her and, knowing her determination and talent, she will certainly do some of the above, maybe all of it.


I don’t have any recipes using green beer for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day but have had requests for this recipe which would be very tasty if served with green beer and chips or it makes a very tasty spread on a New Orleanstype Poor Boy sandwich and it’s good on other things too.

I can’t tell you who gave me the recipe (in 1996) because Grace Curtis says she didn’t, but it’s in her handwriting and her daughter Sally’s name is also on it. Enjoy.
