Editor's note: This is part of an occasional series on children eating vegetables. The series explores ways to highlight a vegetable's flavor and appearance as a way to work around the resistance some picky eaters have to trying unfamiliar vegetables. I am OK with radishes. Really, I am. They have a peppery bite, a bright color and a pleasant crunch. But I've never really taken them seriously on their own. They always seemed like a side show - a garnish - to a salad or some other important dish.

What is now known as the City of Hagerstown was founded in 1762. Founder Jonathan Hager, a German immigrant, named it Elizabeth-Town, for his wife. Hager is said to have laid out about 520 lots, each nearly a half-acre. His 200-acre homestead is now City Park. Hager died on November 6, 1775, during an accident while helping to construct Zion Reformed Church on land he had donated. In 1776, the area became the county seat of Washington County. The name changed to Hager's-Town after it was incorporated on Jan. 26, 1814, according to the Maryland General Assembly's library.

Eating ice cream to beat the summer heat is one of America's favorite pastimes.   Homemade ice cream can be a special treat, but it can also become a threat because of salmonellosis. While commercially manufactured ice cream is typically made with pasteurized eggs or egg products, recipes for homemade ice cream often use raw eggs in the base mixture. If your favorite ice cream recipe uses uncooked eggs, it is time to replace or revise it. Those raw eggs may contain salmonella bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.

Poinsettias were introduced into the United States almost 200 years ago by Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. They were given the common name poinsettia in his honor.   Over time, poinsettias have become the best-selling flowering potted plants in the U.S.  They are tidy attractive plants with clusters of several colored leaves, or bracts. Bracts are typically red, pink or cream and are often mistaken as part of the flower. However, actual poinsettia flowers are small and yellowish green; they are located within the bract clusters.

Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Alan Aubrey Marriner, who died Aug. 31 at the age of 89. His obituary was published in the Sept. 2 edition of The Herald-Mail. Alan Aubrey Marriner would have been the first to describe himself as a thinker. Right up to the end of his life, he was learning new languages and reading everything he could get his hands on. But the life Alan lived bore out that he also was very much a doer -- both in his community and where his family was concerned.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Seven-year-old Trejan Kidrick said he saw a gun in his father's hand moments before his father was shot in the head last summer by Edward C. Grimes. On the witness stand Wednesday in Grimes' murder trial, Trejan confirmed he told investigators that he also saw his father, Ronald Lee Kidrick, draw his gun first. "You think I would lie to you all?" Trejan said. The youngster apparently was one of only two people who witnessed the early morning shooting on July 30, 2005, in the parking lot of the Relax Inn at 1022 Winchester Ave. in Martinsburg.
