"She made the best iced tea I've ever had, complete with mint she picked from her own garden," he said as he gathered with family to share memories of warm moments spent with Pearl Eva Ernst, who passed away July 4 at the age of 91. Greg Ernst, Pearl's son, said he recalls how his mother always told people she didn't work even though she spent many hours in the Ernst Country Market, which she and her late husband, Orville Milton Ernst, started in 1945 in nearby Charlton.

Sipping an iced or chilled drink can help abate the heat of hot summer and early fall days, but those cool liquid calories can add up faster than you might imagine. While it's important to stay hydrated, beverages brimming with extra calories add up to extra pounds. For those calorie-laden drinks, compensate to avoid piling on the pounds with these strategies:  Drink plain water more often. It's calorie-free, healthful and readily available. Many flavored waters are loaded with sugar, and if you're not sharing that 12-ounce bottle, it is two servings instead of one with twice the calories.

Editor's note: This column is in response to a story that ran on the Food page on July 15 about different ways to brew tea. Using the natural rays of the sun to make tea seems like a healthful and energy conscious way to make a zero-calorie beverage. However, using such a method to make tea is highly discouraged. Sun tea is the perfect medium for the growth of harmful bacteria that can make you very ill. Alcaligenes viscolactis, a ropy bacteria commonly found in soil and water, frequently turns up in sun tea giving the drink a thick or syrupy appearance.
