It’s summer camp time!
By Doran Dal Pra ddalpra@hippopress.com

Although it might be hard to envision sunny days of waterskiing and dusty ball fields while the snow is piled deep and the wind cuts to your core, it is indeed time to start thinking about summer camp. Many local organizations have begun their registration processes, and others will be starting theirs soon. While some camps only offer summer programs, others also have school vacation programs to keep the kids entertained during February and April break. It’s a good idea to apply as early as you can, as many camp’s rosters fill up quickly. Most camps offer online registration, which also provides more detailed information about their programs and rates. Start thinking summer!

By Linda A. Thompson-Odum food@hippopress.com

Just because the New England Patriots didn’t make the big game doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the Super Bowl battle between the underdog Arizona Cardinals and the powerhouse Pittsburgh Steelers. And what better way to get into the spirit of the day than to enjoy foods from those two regions?
