Mauer: Eliminating starchy carbs

It's been more than half a century since the theory -- yes the theory -- was floated that saturated fats caused heart disease, and food manufacturers slowly started to remove fat. In the 1990s you watched as "Low Fat" and No Fat" started popping up on grocery store shelves like dandelions in a field.

Matthews: Lunch boxer rebellion

My poor mother.
Growing up, I tormented both parents.  Criminally lazy, I did my very few chores only after the threat of bodily harm. I took evil delight in pushing my brother’s buttons (most of which I’d installed). I’d try to see how many kids I could drive with in my 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger, Lancelot (the record stands at 11). My religion was “Question Authority.”

Lewis Bowling: NCCU's athletic tradition among richest in N.C.

A short list of the great athletes connected to NCCU will ultimately leave out many deserving name, but hopefully the following names will remind area college sports fans that NCCU stands proudly as a university in athletics along with academics.

Mango reaction may predict poison ivy and latex allergy

Q. Many years ago, while my dad was stationed in Hawaii, I climbed mango trees to pick mangoes for chutney. I had a terrible reaction: My eyes were swollen shut, my hands were so swollen that I couldn't close them, and I missed school for two weeks.

Greenberg: The beauty of trees and clay at two local galleries

Themes attached to group shows make it much easier for the visitor to be a part of the process, and trees are a perfect example. We know what a tree should look like, and we can weigh our ideas against those of the artist; there is also the chance to compare one artist’s vision with another’s. And then there are the unending numbers of ways to present a tree through the medium of art.

DPS Corner: All children, schools matter

Last week 3,100 eager students poured into our five year-round schools for the start of the school year. They were excited to meet new classmates, teachers and challenges, and their energy was catching. As I visited these schools on the first day, I felt just as excited. It was a new beginning for all of us.
