Carmen Alexander pours water into the Slush Puppie machine during the grand opening of Hornbeck Grocery on Saturday. The icy drinks were free to kids on Saturday, reminding many of days gone by when a visit to Culotta's, as the store was known then, for a Slush Puppie was just the thing to cure the thirst on a hot summer day. Hornbeck Grocery, owned and operated by Alexander and her husband Scooter, carries groceries, feed, plumbing supplies and offers a cafe' menu of fish, chicken and burgers.
