October 19, 2017 9:00 am

When an emergency strikes, sometimes quick thinking is all it takes to save a life. In order to jump into action, however, you need to know what to do. The AHA Heartsaver CPR/First Aid class on Saturday, October 21st equips people with zero medical training to provide support that could save a life.

Designed by the American Heart Association (AHA), this class certifies participants 16 years and older in life-saving CPR and first aid techniques. Pupils will learn how to appropriately administer CPR to infants, children, and adults. CPR is an effective way to keep the lungs and heart working until emergency medical personnel can take over. Class attendees will also learn what to do if someone chokes, how to use an AED, and what to do for simple cuts and scrapes. The class costs $35 and includes a certification of participation after successful completion. It will be held at the Texas Health Rockwall Medical Office Building from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Fireside Chicken and Tacos: This Mix of American and Mexican Fare Will Tantalize Your Taste Buds

October 13, 2017 11:00 am

No meal at Fireside Chicken and Tacos is complete without a trip to the salsa bar. It's stocked with authentic salsas crafted according to co-owner Oscar Espinosa's own recipes, from the mild salsa roja to the extra-fiery habanero salsa. After you order a plate of street tacos, step right up to the salsa bar and embellish them as you like.

The salsa will only serve to accentuate the existing flavors in tacos stuffed with steak, grilled onion, cilantro, and avocado or chicken in red al pastor sauce with pickled red onions, pineapple, and cilantro. Breaded fish, spicy shrimp, and buffalo chicken are a few of the other proteins that star in Fireside's tacos. But you may want to skip the tacos and go for the rotisserie chicken or wings instead. The eatery is just as popular for its poultry as it is for the Mexican street food.

October 5, 2017 11:01 am

Smoke Smith BBQ, All Sauced Up, and The Sausage King are just a few of the Rockwall-area eateries that will be grilling and smoking meats at this year's Rib, Rub, Run, and Roll. On Saturday, October 7th, you and the rest of Rockwall's barbecue lovers can taste what they've been cooking in downtown Rockwall.

But before you feast, prepare your body by burning some calories. The 10K, 5K, and 1-mile fun run start at 8:30 a.m., taking participants all around Rockwall. After the run, come back to the starting line and enjoy live music, a car show, and, of course, fresh barbecue. Official judges will make most of the calls regarding the best brisket, most tender spare ribs, and perfectly smoked chicken, but the public is invited to cast their vote for the best wings. Buy a package of five tasting tickets and exchange each for a carefully crafted wing in the designated cooking tent, then cast your vote.
