    Traditionally made with veal in combination with prosciutto and fresh sage leaves, Saltimbocca is a dish that you just want to keep eating because it tastes so good.

  •  By John Nelson

  •  It is a rare and wonderful opportunity to read and review a book written by a college classmate and friend. Rarer yet is the chance to travel deeply into the life and spirit of a woman who has endured, survived, and been transformed by the experiences of two assaults on humanity: the Nazi and Soviet invasions and conquests of the Baltic countries.

  • A fun show expo to benefit rescued horses will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 22, at Honalee Stables, 367 Danford Road in Bolivia.

    Highlights include English, western and trail classes as well as games and “payback barrels.”

    Horses from the United States Equine Rescue League, Southeast Coast Region, will also be available for viewing and on-site adoptions.

    General admission is $1.

    All classes are $6 each and $50 for unlimited gaming.

  • Fried fish is already a buzzword in the seafood capital.

    During Lent, it takes on renewed meaning at Calabash VFW Post 7288.

    On Friday, March 7, the Post will once again fire up its annual Friday-night Lenten fish fries.

    Dinners consisting of fried and breaded fresh haddock with all the trimmings will be served 5 to 7 p.m. Fridays through Good Friday, April 18.

    Dinners this year are $10 per plate. An extra cup of clam chowder is $1.

    Former post commander Jack Goin jokes the secret for cooking Lenten fish is all in the wrist.

  • Get ready to run for the flytraps.

    The second annual Half Hell Haul gets under way at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 22, at the Boiling Spring Lakes Community Center Nature Trail.

    Benefits from the race will be used to protect Venus flytraps.

    Racing through the region’s piney woods is “a fun way to highlight flytraps,” race organizer Angie Carl said.

    Carnivorous Venus flytraps only grow in the wild in southeast North Carolina and in a sliver of northeast South Carolina, Carl said.

  •  The characteristic blue-green veining of bleu cheese (blue cheese), made from cow, sheep or goat’s milk, is easily identifiable.

    Like a cold, iced martini, people either love it or hate it!

  •  How often I have heard someone tell me to lighten up, cool my jets, chill out, or words to that effect! It seems that deep thinking is far less popular an activity than deep sea diving. Do religion, if you want, but don’t be a fanatic about it. Comments or commentaries, reactions or responses to religion’s status quo repel those who would follow a God whose demands are modest ... whose commands are not unsettling. Any tendency to profound pondering is annoying, if not anathema!
