Business keeps woman tuned in to Phillies, Yankees
I stopped to see an old friend, Ruth Fitzpatrick, last week who is very very ill. I asked if there was anything she would like and she replied in a weak voice that a TV in her room to see the World Series would be great. She is bed-ridden and can not be moved to the TV room.

How to form linzer tart cookies
Linzer tart cookies can be formed with a specialty Linzer cookie cutter and insert (pictured left), or shaped with a 2-inch crinkle-edge biscuit cutter. When using a biscuit cutter, cut an opening in the top cookie with a miniature cookie (or aspic) cutter. Look for Linzer cookie cutters and miniature cookie cutters in stores, or on-line sources that sell specialty bakeware.

HEA has enough issues with regulation
I am writing as a 38-year member of HEA, residential and commercial property landlord, and 28-year owner of Kelly Electric, Inc. on the Kenai. I would not be in favor of "self-regulation" for our "consumer owned utility" because HEA consistently considers its own balance sheet before its customers. I am speaking of policy issues, not to be confused with either the work in the office or the field of the HEA workers. It is not the policy of HEA to pay the customers' bills from my company or another contractor to make multiple trips (or a single trip) to identify a problem on HEA's side of the meter -- HEA doesn't charge to fix their problem, but the customer may incur costs from a private contractor to figure out that their problem is with HEA's equipment or faulty installation. It seems as the years go by, more and more conditions of faulty equipment or installation and the damages they cause are discounted by HEA as an "Act of God" -- which makes HEA not liable.

HEA says Energy Watch Conservation Drill effective
