    NEW YORK - Priests, nuns and canon lawyers who advocate for molestation victims urged Pope Francis this week to use the new Vatican tribunal he formed on negligent bishops to investigate the archbishop of Newark, New Jersey, who has long been accused of sheltering abusive priests.

    As part of its series of themed exhibitions, Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will feature Florida’s butterflies and bees during the month of August.

  • Editor’s note: Kevin Williams, editor of The Amish Cook, contributes this special column. Gloria Yoder will return next week.
    I wanted to step in this week to give Gloria a “summer break” and, more importantly, to thank readers for welcoming Gloria into your homes and lives over the past year.
    Gloria has been sharing with us now for a full year. How did 12 months slip by so speedily? I look forward to more educational and entertaining dispatches from Flat Rock, Illinois, in the future.

  • Show of hands, please! How many gentle readers know the difference between Champagne and
    Prosecco?
    Most likely answer: Both are bubbly wines — Champagne comes from France, while Prosecco is Italian.
    Correct to a point, but the major difference is the process whereby they achieve a fizzle. The French people refer to a certain wine product with bubbles as Champagne (capital “C”), which originates in a designated area about 90 miles due east of Paris — surprise — named Champagne.

  • Today’s main story on Flair for Food about how to grow, buy and prepare okra made me hungry for other typically Southern dishes that are always in my recipe repertoire.

    For flavor, there is really nothing much better than Southern-style food and old time Southerners know how to spread out a feast for family and company.

  • It seems there is no in-between opinion about okra. You either love it or you hate it.

    Those who do love it are quick to extol its versatility and goodness, while the haters complain that the vegetable is slimy and unfit for human consumption.

  • Q: I have been having an ache in my last tooth on the upper left side for a few weeks. I have been to the dentist twice since this has started. He told me that I have an infection in my gums and prescribed a Z pack. He also told me that I have periodontal disease. I just turned 40 and have not taken great care of my teeth. I plan on starting on a plan to take my dental health seriously, but this has discouraged me.
