All stories

March 10, 1999
A “for sale” sign went up in front of my house on Monday, and suddenly I am faced with something more nerve-wrecking than buying a house — selling one. Buying the house we live in now was probably one of the worst experiences of my life. We were young, just out of college and far from home. When we found the perfect “starter house,” Realtors were anxious to sell and bankers were happy for the mortgage business — but they all seemed to forget about us in the process.

T ALWAYS SAFE EVEN WHEN THEY LOOK DONE
March 10, 1999
When cooking meat, is “done” the same as “safe?” Food safety experts agree that foods are properly cooked when they are heated for a long enough time and at a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria that cause food-borne illness. But the real question is “how can you tell if food has been heated thoroughly?” There are some foods, such as poultry, that will give visual signs of doneness, but other foods, such as ground beef, will not.

DEAR EDITOR:
March 10, 1999
This letter is in response to the False Security letter which appeared in the paper on March 5, 1999. What is even more amazing than learning self defense in six weeks is that someone could write such a letter in response to an ad about something he has absolutely no knowledge of in the first place. The Quick Defense Black Belt Course of which he spoke of, is a special six week class designed to teach self defense techniques to people who otherwise would not enroll in a martial arts school. The techniques taught in the QD Course are simple enough for anyone to learn, yet very effective. At the end of the course, the QD graduate is awarded a Black Belt plaque to display (not wear) on their wall as a symbol of their accomplishment. The QD Course is not a traditional marital arts class, and the QD black belt is not intended to replace the traditional black belt. The QD Course should be thought of as one would think of a Trade School vs. a University. The QD Course is a Trade School for martial arts, and a martial arts school is a University. As Black Belt instructors who have been training for 41 years combined, we, and all other black belts, know that it doesn’t take 3-4 years to learn self-defense skills only. We have plenty of QD graduates that will tell you that they now have the confidence and the ability to defend themselves if they need to.

Over the past few years there has been a great deal of talk about the proper relationship between what is legal and what is right from the moral perspective. Many people have come to understand that law and morality do not always coincide. There are times when what is legal may be considered immoral by an individual or group. There are other times when what is considered moral by an individual or group is, in fact, illegal. Laws are rules issued by governmental entities. They are generally created by some established process and made public. And, government usually exacts some penalty for their violation. Morality, on the other hand, has its source not in governmental process but in individual and group beliefs. It is often based upon religion or social consensus. Laws may be moral, if they reflect an agreed-upon moral principle, but they need not be so to be valid laws. The best way to understand the distinction is through examples.

FOOD MAGAZINE TRIED TO SERVE TOO MANY
March 10, 1999
The March-April issue of Eating Well magazine arrived a couple of weeks ago in a cover wrap announcing the magazine’s demise. The remainder of my subscription will be filled with some other magazine. Although it wasn’t my favorite of the food magazines, I suppose I’m sorry to see it go. Eating Well provided a different perspective on food — but it obviously didn’t do it with a formula that appealed to enough readers. In fact, had Eating Well not set its annual subscription rate at $9.95 in a bid to attract and keep readers, I probably would have given it up, too.
