Table Talk: Zucchini infamy

A weekly blog about food, farmers and everything in between.

Summer squash gets a bad rap. Winter squash are better off — pumpkins, butternut and acorn squash all have their places on fall and winter dinner menus. Zucchini and yellow squash, on the other hand, are a harder sell. Some people hate it, but few have strong feelings in the other direction. I can’t recall ever hearing anyone profess an undying affection for the zucchini.

Table Talk: Strawberry season

A weekly blog about food, farmers and everything in between.

Growing up, my classes always finished at the very end of June. We spent most of that last month in the muggy heat of packed classrooms, eagerly awaiting the freedom of summer vacation. Everywhere else, students were approaching the halfway point of theirs.

I always struggled to fill my first weeks of vacation with as many summer activities as I could fit. Watermelon figured prominently into my plans, as did swimming, canoeing and fireworks-watching. But the best part of these weeks was always the strawberries.

Snapshots: Joseph Steventon

By CHELSEY PLETTS
The beach was dark. Naval guns had cleared enemy resistance the night before. The shoreline stood deserted — except for Joseph Steventon and his team.

After a rough 35-hour journey from Milne Bay to a beachhead in Hollandia, Dutch New Guinea, Steventon and his men were dropped in enemy territory unescorted. Steventon was Executive and Technical Officer with the 989th Signal Service Company responsible for establishing communication lines between American forces.

He was only 25 years old.
