By Anne Chovey Special to The Herald-Mail WILLIAMSPORT --Tony's Pizza Time Café on Salisbury Street in Williamsport has been around for a long time. It has always been a favorite of high school students and local residents in the mood for a good pizza.   Recently, however, Tony's has expanded and remodeled, taking over the Laundromat facilities next door, and become an honest-to-goodness sit-down restaurant. My dining companions, Pap Ricka, Penny Pasta and Mack Aroni joined me for a visit.

From a health standpoint, vegetables are a five-star food group: naturally nutrient-rich; better tasting than a vitamin pill; low in calories and fat; cholesterol-free; and packed with disease-fighting phytonutrients. A study in the November Journal of Nutrition emphasizes the double benefit of vegetable intake. Volunteers who ate vegetables consistently for two weeks had higher blood levels of vitamin C - and lower levels of some compounds that impair health. In this study, the vegetables were eaten as gazpacho, an antioxidant-rich soup of tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and garlic.

When we entered Laila's Kitchen on East Franklin Street in downtown Hagerstown, the first thing we saw on the far wall was a big round clock with Roman numerals to tell the time. But the curious thing was, when we entered Laila's Kitchen, it was as if time stopped. We were transported to the Afghan culture where hospitality is the rule and where sharing a meal is a timeless event. We could have stayed all day, sipping chai (tea) and talking about Afghan food with the owners, Laila and Sharif Basharyar.

Many people who try to eat healthier, find a hindrance early on in their efforts. They often tell me that they don't like vegetables. Eating vegetables is crucially important to overall health and weight loss. The nutrients found in vegetables are essential to proper body function and immune support. So to not eat them as a whole is counter productive at best. However, the reality is, unless you are truly hardcore, you won't eat veggies unless they taste good. So here are a few ways to help you eat your vegetables and actually enjoy them.

A curious aspect of American life is that we always seem to get two disasters for the price of one. There's the original disaster, then the follow-up disaster that involves the government's response to the original disaster. Maybe there's a thread of nobility here. It's the notion that a government "fix" can ensure that nothing bad will happen to us again ever. And to be sure, there are times that a fix is in order. Trying to advance the cause of socialism, Upton Sinclair instead inspired the government to clean up miserably unsanitary conditions in Chicago's meat-packing plants.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Maryland health officials said Friday they have confirmed the state's first three spinach-related E. coli illnesses in a nationwide outbreak, but aren't sure if a Washington County woman's death also was connected. The Maryland Department of Health & Mental Hygiene doesn't yet know if it can determine the source of the woman's E. coli. "Certain specimens that we need in order to conduct the DNA testing are not available on that resident," Dr. Michelle Gourdine, the state's deputy secretary of public health services, said Friday, according to The Associated Press.
