    Agritourism takes off in Hawaii
    HANALEI, Hawaii — It's a warm Tuesday afternoon on Kauai and tourists are lining up — just a few at first, then a dozen or so. Finally more than 100 have gathered, waiting patiently. They're not here to swim with dolphins, snorkel in turquoise...
  • Convict Lake worth going on the lam for a getaway

    Convict Lake worth going on the lam for a getaway
    My brother, John, tried to sleep during the boring part of the three-hour trip from Los Angeles to Convict Lake in the Eastern Sierra. Fortunately, I was driving. Besides, I don't think there's a boring part, especially once you get on U.S. 395 in the...
  • Fairness for Eastern Shore chicken farmers

    Within the poultry industry, company dealings with the farmers they contract with have been one-sided for at least the past 20 years. It's been a long, hard battle for contract farmers to try to gain any fairness in that relationship; I can't count the...
  • When too many waterfowl make the water foul

    It's that time of year when the Canada geese are on the move. The early October nip in the air seemed to have rousted the big birds into the air and put them into their V-formations for another season. When it comes down to it, I rather like the visiting...

    You have to pay, but you actually can learn something by going on vacation
    I am not a good lounger. I don't like to waste a vacation doing something that passes itself off as an activity just because it's a verb, like "sunning." I prefer to strap on a backpack and disappear into the woods for a few days, covering enough miles...
  • Working vacations

    Don't like lounging? There are plenty of vacation destinations that invite you to pay for the privilege of working. Here are three opportunities to expend some elbow grease and come away with a sense of accomplishment. And muscle fatigue. Keep them...
  • End the ethanol charade

    End the ethanol charade
    Is it just me, or was there actually a time when ethanol was the great, green hope? Didn't Al Gore tell us it would fight global warming through cleaner motor vehicle emissions? Didn't George W. Bush promise this homegrown grain byproduct would reduce U....
  • In author Betty MacDonald's footsteps

    In author Betty MacDonald's footsteps
    The Betty MacDonald Farm is still everything its first owner described in her memoir "Onions in the Stew": a beautiful retreat with a breathtaking view of Puget Sound, lush fruit trees and bald eagles nesting just outside the windows. The farm in the...
  • Ribbs back in the driver's seat

    The latest chapter in the remarkable 35-year career of racecar driver Willy T. Ribbs began "in the middle of an Iowa cornfield." Ribbs, the first African-American to drive in the Indianapolis 500, didn't see any helmeted ghosts of Daytona's past or...
  • Ribbs back in the driver's seat at Baltimore Grand Prix

    The latest chapter in the remarkable 35-year career of racecar driver Willy T. Ribbs began "in the middle of an Iowa cornfield." Ribbs, the first African-American to drive in the Indianapolis 500, didn't see any helmeted ghosts of Daytona's past or...
