charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Think the latest attraction at Charles Town Races & Slots is impressive? Stay tuned. Track owners say they plan to build a large buffet at a cost of about $7 million and probably will build another parking garage at a cost of about $25 million. The track, which has nearly 4,500 slot machines, now has a 2,500-space parking garage. The ideal situation is to have a parking space for every slot machine, so track owners are looking to create more parking.

The problem with buffets, as we all know, is that some of the food will be fresh and hot and some will not. Good buffets overcome this built-in flaw by offering lots of choices at a good price and by trying to keep pace with the dining crowd by refilling the buffet bar. That's what the operators of Pacific Ocean on Dual Highway have done. There's a lot of variety here at a really good price and a wait staff that is rarely absent from the floor. You pay as soon as you walk in the door.

First-time homebuyers and foreign investors with cash are swooping in to buy older homes in the few pockets of the country were real estate is starting to show signs of life. This in no way means that we are out of the woods. But we are seeing first-time homebuyers being enticed by tax breaks and low interest rates. Not always, but often, houses in depressed areas are exceptionally affordable. There has recently been a lot of good publicity for artists attempting to turn one shabby Detroit neighborhood into a haven for struggling young people.

With a nibble here and nibble there, it's easy to add a few extra pounds during the "eating season," the time between Nov. 1 and the end of the Super Bowl. During the eating season, normal activities, such as eating, sleeping and exercise often are set aside in favor of holiday activities and events. While spending time with family and friends is enjoyable, most holiday activities include seasonal foods that often are high in calories, sugar and fat. An invitation to a party or special event should not be considered an invitation to overeat.

Here are some tips to be merry and survive holiday eating without adding extra pounds:  Breakfast first . Eating breakfast will ensure you are less likely to overeat throughout the day. Keep refined carbs-bagels and muffins-to a minimum. If you eat those, cut them in half because they boost your sugar and fat consumption.   Plan ahead. When you know you'll be eating away from home, eat a simple salad, bowl of soup or apple ahead of time to curb your appetite. To manage holiday events without overindulging, eat regular meals and perhaps a snack before a late afternoon or evening event.

Who says you can't make an old prognosticator new picks? Although I'm in my fourth decade of doing this job - I'd still be five in dog years - I still take time to try to stay up on the latest trends in football coaching, tailgate indulging and game picking. There's no better way to do that than going to seminars. I found the perfect one because it incorporated all three aspects of my livelihood at one site. Yes, there was one just like that ... it was called the Punt, Gas and Pick Clinic.
