Name: Salsa Age: 4 years old Color: Black Breed: Chihuahua ID: A13125647 Salsa is a sweet, lap-loving boy. He is very loving and wants to be somebody's constant companion. He already knows sit, and will be easy to train with yummy treats and love. Salsa is a little timid so he would be best suited in a home that does not have children younger than 6. If you are interested in a dog that will love you forever, Salsa is your boy. Salsa and many other animals are available for adoption at The Humane Society of Washington County, 13011 Maugansville Road, Hagerstown.

The salsa class is Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and will feature canning methods and recipes for salsa as well as other tomato/vegetable combinations.

The smell of the lime and cilantro is the first thing you notice in Lois DeLisi's Pico de Gallo. DeLisi, 63, of Hagerstown, placed a bowl of it on the table, beside the tortilla chips and mouth-cooling cubes of cheddar (for the hot peppers in the Pico de Gallo). The fragrant, salsa-like dish earned her short-haired calico, Fancy, banishment to an out-of-reach room upstairs after Fancy twice leapt onto the tabletop and nudged her nose over the bowl. Suffice it to say DeLisi's Pico de Gallo is hard to resist.

Tomatoes, one of the most popular summer vegetables, come in several colors (red, yellow, orange and green) and shapes (round, plum and cherry). They are low in calories and high in vitamins A and C, and antioxidants. Nothing tastes quite as good as tomatoes fresh from the garden. Choose brightly colored tomatoes with smooth skins. The most flavorful tomatoes are vine-ripened. Fragrance is a better indicator of a good tomato than color. Smell the stem end, which should remind you of the aroma of a fresh tomato plant.

A slim tip sent me north, across the Mason-Dixon Line, in search of 'really good salsa' at Arturo's Pizzeria and Mexican Cuisine in Quincy, Pa., just north of Waynesboro, Pa. There were enough combinations here to at least find a story. I found Arturo's on the windy first day of spring. Two of us were welcomed and given a cup of hot coffee and a seat in the sunshine. I looked out the huge window at fields leading to forests at the foot of South Mountain. Clouds raced across the sky as I studied the menu and sipped my coffee.

Judging tomatoes was a perfect way for tomato lover Catherine Burke to spend Wednesday afternoon. Burke of Mt. Airy, Md., was one of many tomato-tasters who sampled 24 different types of tomatoes at a Tomato Tasting event at the Penn State Cooperative Extension center off Franklin Farm Lane in Chambersburg. The annual event is put on by the Master Gardeners of Franklin County. Each table was lined with tomatoes as tasters armed with clipboards rated them on a scale of 1 to 5 based on flavor and appearance.

Editor's note: This is part of an occasional series of stories on children eating vegetables and fruit. The series explores ways to work around picky eaters' resistance to trying vegetables and fruits. This is Leitersburg Peach Festival weekend. This year, there will be more than 100 vendors, a display of antique tractors, Civil War re-enactors and activities for children. But this event is an old-fashioned food festival with most of the emphasis on peaches and foods made with peaches and not a lot of extraneous activity.

This fresh, flavorful recipe is easy to make - if you are quick with a knife. I suggest using a very sharp knife, not trying to use a food processor or chopper because you run the risk of creating watermelon soup. Simply take a large slice out of a watermelon, about 1 to 1/2 inches thick, and cut the melon away from the rind and into small dice. The idea is to create a 3:1 ratio of watermelon to onion and pepper. If you have fresh corn, use one fresh, cooked ear, and cut the corn away from the cob. If you don't have or can't find fig balsamic vinegar, use a quality-aged balsamic.

The avocado season has come and gone, but in honor of one of my all-time favorite foods I put together a blend of summer fresh ingredients to remind us of summer. I love the fresh bright flavors of heirloom tomatoes but if you can't find them, substituting beefsteak or plum will work just as well. The real key to this recipe is freshness, and flavor. Nothing listed is artificial or processed in any way. It's great for you and goes well as a side salad on top of leaf lettuce or as a dip with fresh chips or torn pita bread.

With the beat of Latino music and the sizzle of carne asada and tortillas on the grills in the background, hundreds of people mingled and learned more about area businesses and nonprofits as the sixth annual Hagerstown Hispanic Festival kicked off early Sunday afternoon. Live music, dance groups, and a soccer - or futbol - tournament also were planned for the festival, held at the north end of Hagerstown's Fairgrounds Park. The goal of the festival is to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, inviting the community at-large, and to raise money for scholarships, said Sila Alegret-Bartel, vice president of the Hispanic Association of Hagerstown.
