I have worked as the City of Hagerstown's market coordinator for more than two years. I learned a number of things from my vendors, including how to be a better cook, thanks in part to the products they offer. In my free time, I spend time with my family, reading anything on Ireland and history and watching old movies. I gathered fruit for this salad from vendors at the Market Faire and the historic City Farmers' Market. I bought fruit from Bingaman's Greenhouse, Litton's Berries & Produce, Hickory Haven Farm and The Farmer's Daughter; yogurt from Dave Elliott of Blue Mountain Farm; and cream cheese pound cake from R&B Baked Goods & More.

Nothing beats a cool, refreshing salad on a hot summer night. This heart-healthy recipe takes less than 15 minutes to toss together and provides a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken; you also could substitute sliced pork tenderloin, grilled shrimp or shredded rotisserie chicken. I made it with cantaloupe and swapped chopped candied pecans for the walnuts. 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream 3 tablespoons fruit-flavored vinegar (I used raspberry balsamic) 4 teaspoons sugar 1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds 1/4 teaspoon salt Freshly ground pepper to taste 8 cups mixed salad greens 2 cups sliced cooked chicken breast 2 cups chopped melon, such as honeydew or cantaloupe 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese Whisk sour cream, vinegar, sugar, poppy seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth.

It's no wonder that Americans rely on fast food more at lunch than at any other time of day. Hectic schedules and work pressures have made the lunch hour a thing of the past for many people. We rush through the drive-in - and then try to combine dashboard dining with long to-do lists. Lunch is a tasty time to harness the power of nutrition. What foods make a power lunch? A cup of bean soup and a crisp green salad or roast beef on whole wheat with a fruit salad are both power choices.

HANCOCK - Twelve years ago, Hancock Lions Club member Larry Gerber was sitting at home at Thanksgiving watching the news from the Washington, D.C., area. "Everyone was serving the socially disadvantaged," Gerber said. "I wondered why we can't do that in Hancock. " Gerber brought the idea of serving Christmas dinner to Hancock's disadvantaged to his fellow Lions, and they all were in favor. Looking around for a place, Gerber approached Webster B. Harrison American Legion Post 26 to see if the Lions could use their building for the dinner.

You've probably seen headlines like these: Fruits and vegetables lower cholesterol levels and risk of heart disease. Strawberries and watermelon help prevent prostate problems. There's no doubt that eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is good for you. The problem is that most Americans just aren't getting enough fruit for optimal health and well-being. Summer is the perfect season to get into the fruit habit. Many fresh fruits are less expensive and easily available in grocery stores and farmers markets.

Sometimes I just plain get tired of all the political rhetoric and news that saturates my life. Sure, I know it's most important that we get some working and knowledgeable leaders in office but I'm not sure where exactly we might find them. As a matter of self entertainment, I came across a list of Paraprosdokians which sort of makes you think about a few things. Kind of humorous too in a way. A Paraprosdokian. I'm glad I didn't have that word in a spelling bee. It's meaning? Well, according to most sources a Paraprosdokian “is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader to reinterpret the first part.” There, now that's easy enough to understand, so you're really apt to get confused for sure.
