Anti-Obama vote aside, why vote for Mitt? To the editor: I would like my GOP friends to tell me why they are voting for Mitt Romney. And it's got to be more than the president's so-called failures. The only reason he's failed at anything is because the Congress blocks his every move. He's tried to pass five job bills, highway funding and various women's issues. People must believe this, because Congress is at its worst approval at 10 percent! The only job plan the GOP has is Paul Ryan's plan, which even the nonpartisan budget office has said it is a loser; it would hurt the poor, seniors and the middle class.

The pineapple was once a very lonely fruit sent over to the mainland from Hawaii. James Dole canned his heart out but realized that many homemakers and cooks had no idea what to do with this product. So he had to create some recipes for a fruit he already introduced to the marketplace. The addition of the mango into this recipe adds a nice touch of color and mellowness to the pineapple to really round out this soup. If you don't like the mango, try kiwi, strawberries, fresh peaches or simply up the amount of pineapple.

firstname.lastname@example.org WILLIAMSPORT - Two cheerleaders from Williamsport High School took their skills to Hawaii in February for the 2003 National Football League Pro Bowl. Junior Corey Hamby and senior Jessica Leiter, both of whom have been cheering for Williamsport High since they were freshmen, joined about 1,000 other young women in Honolulu for the Feb. 3 football game, they said. Jessica called the opportunity a "once in a lifetime experience. " Coaches and teammates nominated Corey and Jessica to cheer in the Pro Bowl after the girls performed well at a cheer-leading competition in Williamsburg, Va. The event's judges then gave the girls the go-ahead, they said.

o If you like reading Tim Rowland, you'll love watching him. See what else Tim has to say This is the break I've been looking for: You can sue for being "disappointed. " Sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. It began when a British couple booked a $100,000 journey around the world aboard the Queen Victoria luxury liner. No shipwreck or desert island was involved, but the couple was assigned a room where the floor flexed excessively, causing an "unbearable racket," according to the London Daily Mail.

Crena Anderson wasn't at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. But the 88-year-old Halfway resident will be linked to that day for the rest of her life. She said her first and second husbands were stationed at Army bases in Hawaii during the attack, although the two young soldiers didn't know each other at the time. “I'm proud of what they did - very proud,” Crena said at her home earlier this week. “They must have been scared to death.” Crena said she married her first husband, Marvin Spencer, shortly after they met while he was home on leave in 1944.
