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.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Come October, one more thing will separate Waynesboro and Honolulu - an Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar. Construction is scheduled to begin next week on the restaurant in the Rouzerville Commons shopping center, and the target opening is in October, a company spokeswoman said in an e-mail Thursday. Sixteen countries and every state except Hawaii are home to at least one of the more than 1,800 Applebee's restaurants, Vikki Watson said. "The staff for a typical restaurant consists of one general manager, one kitchen manager, two or three assistant managers and approximately 60 hourly associates," Watson said.

HAGERSTOWN -- This weekend's Bonanza Extravaganza at Hagerstown Speedway will feature four live bands, tip jars, games and a 16-lane all-you-can-eat buffet, but organizers say those aren't the reason the $100 tickets are selling so fast. "I think the biggest draw is the prize list," event chairman Rick Conrad said. "Every time someone looks at this prize list, they look at me and say, 'How can you guys do this?'" In a series of lottery-style drawings, the International Association of Firefighters Local 1605 Foundation will give away more than $800,000 in prizes, including a $100,000 grand prize, seven new Chevrolet cars and trucks, and eight new Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Conrad said.
