Lugene Hudson on Fitness: I hope my 5K experience inspires you to hit the road
Ah, Tony Bennett, there’s a time to listen to you. But it’s not when I need motivation to run up a hill. Where was the upbeat Adam Levine and Maroon 5 on my MP3 player to help me along? I suppose it really didn’t matter.
Culinary Conversation: Make magazines fat, not you
Wow. Besides meals, even magazines are super sizing it these days. Some of you may have heard that the September issue of Vogue weighed about four or five pounds and was more than 750 pages. If I had one more copy, I could have used them for lifting weights instead of my usual dumbbells.
Culinary Conversation: Julia Child, from top secret to top chef
She was one of several famous people I would have loved to have dinner with. The conversation would have been lively for sure — because the woman had a larger-than-life personality.
Julia Child would have been 100 this year.
Culinary Conversation: Chocolate or white, both are a delight
Sometimes the names of recipes are misleading. Or confusing. I never understood why a certain dessert was called Texas Sheet cake. After pondering for a little while, I came to the conclusion that maybe the name comes from the fact that the state is enormous and the cake is larger than the standard one-layer variety.

Lawrence County is fortunate to have lots of small communities, each with its own special attributes. Many of those areas not only boast wonderful cooks but have the cookbooks to back those bragging rights.
Wampum is one such place.
Culinary Conversation: Like life, treats can be smooth, rocky
The phrase I heard the most while working on a story about summer safety was, “Be alert to your surroundings.” I really should have paid more attention. Seriously, when you’re outdoors, there are so many unforeseen things that can happen.
Culinary Conversation: Can't decide on a recipe? Try them all!
It was difficult selecting just a few for this week’s Culinary Conversation. So I chose from each section except the sweet stuff and will save those for another time.
Culinary Conversation: It’s time to get your orange on
Life is about routines. Get up, shower, have coffee, get dressed and go to work. Most of us probably eat the same type of breakfast every day. Some skip it all together.
Culinary Conversation: Still baking? Two new cookies to try
The envelope, return address and letterhead all reflected the spirit of the season. On paper adorned with Christmas trees, Helen Martin of New Castle penned a lovely note sending along holiday cheer and included some cookie recipes she has tried and loved.
