Lori Brothers: It’s time to get hooked on fish oil supplements — for reel


NEW CASTLE — Oatmeal Energy Bites

One of our Jameson volunteers, Karen Kerber, shared this recipe with me. She said she loves it in the morning or later as a snack.


  • 1 cup dry oat meal
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Spray an 8 x 8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the mixture evenly in pan, cover with cling wrap, and putinto the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill. Cut into even sections (either 12 or 16 squares). You can keep them in the fridge in the pan, covered, or store them in an airtight container in the fridgefor up to one week. Super easy. Super quick.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
