Winter begs for stew. Try a simple and speedy veggie tagine

February 18, 2015

Associated Press

A brimming pot of hearty stew is a gift in so many ways during the gray, bone-chilling days of winter. Simmering merrily away on the stove, it warms the kitchen (especially if you fire up the oven and bake a pan of cornbread to serve with it). Its aroma lifts the spirits, encouraging anyone who walks through the front door that they are finally home.

And given that it's made in a huge pot, it's an antidote to loneliness. It begs to be shared with your neighbors!

February 16, 2015

BOISE (AP) — An Idaho lawmaker upset with federal judges who have overturned same-sex marriage bans across the nation is proposing that Congress impeach judges who fail to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
Republican Rep. Paul Shepherd of Riggins introduced the non-binding resolution Monday to the Idaho House State Affairs Committee.
The committee voted to introduce the resolution, with four Democrats opposed.
