Supreme caterer Cyd Koehn told the Daily Umbrella that cardboard is the biggest enemy of kitchen hygiene. "Never bring it inside. Roaches lay eggs there and even bigger vermin love it. Hy Vee corporate never allowed cardboard boxes inside the kitchen when I worked there and I learned never to either."

Crist family is new to Norwalk

By Lindsey Giardino

Kristin Crist’s family of four — including her husband, Mike, two daughters, McKenzie and Kaylie, and two dogs, Bella and Daisy — moved from Arkansas to Norwalk just this past June.
