The ongoing controversy of vegetarianism isn't going anywhere anytime soon. The pro-veggie side claims to have discovered the key to health and longevity.

Canned Turkey slideshow MARION, PA. -- It is almost 5 p.m. The six industrial pressure canners have been puffing steam for 12 solid hours. About half of the 48,000 pounds of chunked turkey thighs still sits in a huge cooler, waiting to be canned. As the call comes to put another batch of cans in the pressure cooker, smiles flicker across the faces of Josh Voth of Kansas and Viktor Schwendich of Germany. The men have spent the last two years touring North America, sealing meat in tin cans for the Mennonite Central Committee.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Commissioners Thursday placed no additional limits on a proposal to allow meat processing in the county and sent the proposal back to the county Planning Commission unchanged. The proposed zoning amendment that would allow meat processing in the county has been controversial, and Commission President James K. Ruland had suggested putting a limit on the number of animals that could be cut and packaged at a site. The limit could be put in place in addition to a Planning Commission requirement that 75 percent of the meat processed on a farm must be raised on the property.

The lab tested the hamburger and also reviewed information from the autopsy report, Haddy said.

To most people, meat is part of everyday life. The fact is, though, some people won't even think about putting a piece of meat into their mouths. Why would someone eradicate meat from his or her diet? Well, there are a multitude of reasons. Kyla Stigdon is 15 years old and is home schooled. The Carroll County resident enjoys acting and traveling. She decided to stop eating meat when she was 12. "I don't like the way meat tastes," she said. Kyla does not find it difficult to be a vegetarian, even in a meat-loving culture.

In most of the cases, a shopping cart was loaded with meat and taken from the store through the entrance door, said Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy William Parker. Two Jefferson County men were charged in relation to an incident last Wednesday, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.

Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer grilling season. Grilling, one of the easiest low-fat cooking methods, can be a centerpiece for summertime meals. When grilling, as with other food preparation methods, it is important to follow food-handling and safety guidelines.   Grills need annual cleaning after winter storage by scouring the grate with a grill brush. Spray the grill with oven cleaner and rinse thoroughly. Before each use, apply non-stick cooking spray to prevent food from sticking to the grill.

Ed Poling remembers little waffle-like cookies baking on the stove during Christmas time at his home in Windber, Pa. Poling, now senior pastor at Hagerstown Church of the Brethren, remembers those cookies, known as Pizzelles, as having a distinct taste due to anise that was added to them. Poling figures the treats probably have an Italian origin, which makes sense given the diverse background of Windber, a community outside of Johnstown, Pa. Windber was known for its coal mines and steel mills, and people from throughout Europe immigrated to the community for jobs, Poling said.

If the flags around Hagerstown aren't flying at half-staff, they should be. For America is facing an impending bacon shortage. I say Hagerstown, but really it would be a time of national morning in a country where bacon finds its way into everything from hamburgers to ice cream. My own view is that bacon is an indictment of our factory farming system, which is pumping out ever more product with ever less flavor. Used to be a hamburger didn't need bacon. Used to be a chicken breast tasted like something without having to wrap it in slabs of pork fat. Which we do. At which point the government steps in and tells us we are all fat, worthless and weak.
