Our spring feasts -- often centered around Passover and Easter -- typically call for a center-of-the-plate star like brisket or lamb.

Ryan Woodard and John Hill used the last rays of sunlight Tuesday to replace divots. Lots of divots. But this was no game of golf.

Nobody had to be asked twice to line up for the buffet at Trotter Convention Center March 11. Tables laden with food and a room filled with tantalizing aromas did the job. The first annual Lowndes County Wildlife Tasting Supper was a solid success.
Invented in Buffalo, N.Y., during the '60s, buffalo chicken wings have become a national favorite. Big surprise! If fat is where the flavor is, and if everyone's a sucker for flavor, buffalo chicken couldn't lose.
I drove to Starkville to interview Elizabeth Gwin, who is a vital 105 years old.
Shanna Head is a lively, youthful spirit with a contagious laugh who fills any room with fun. So when she got spring fever, I did, too! Through several seasons, Shanna has worn her hair long, and much to my surprise she confessed she never had highlights, ever.
