‘Passion in the Park’ re-enacts birth, trial, crucifixion, resurrection of Jesus
Many say it is a life-changing experience that brings the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus to life. It is certainly a community effort driven by a desire of many volunteer Christians who come together to express their passion for the passion of Jesus Christ.

Providence Food Pantry going strong after year at new location
The setup inside the building makes it feel like you’re walking into a “mom-and-pop” grocery store, with a check-in area, and aisles for patrons to walk through and eye all the food set up perfectly on tables.

TRIED ’N’ TRUE: Use this sauce on ribs, pork chops, hamburgers and more
A friend of mine from church invited us to her home to celebrate her son, Nick’s graduation.
She had made so much food I couldn’t believe it. Her husband can’t eat a lot of different food.
She made a barbecue chicken — but you can use this on ribs, pork chops, hamburgers, etc.

Shape of an Idea: Inspiration flows from 19th-century songwriter to modern-day sculpture in his honor
As a child, Teresa Clark played near a river. A century earlier, young Paul Dresser did the same.
Their memories inspired artwork. A song Dresser wrote in 1897 flows through a sculpture Clark is now creating.
GRAPE SENSE: Winemakers, grape growers anxious to educate public at state fair
Indiana winemakers are anxious to pour their wines at the Indiana State Fair, and Hoosier grape growers are ready to stand alongside Indiana’s other agricultural producers.
TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: You won’t believe these cookies are made with soda crackers
This is one of those recipes that when you taste them you want the recipe, but you don’t believe they are made with a certain ingredient.

Author visits birthplace of Calvin Coolidge
Editor’s Note: Today, in this seventh and final installment of Mike Lunsford’s “New England Journal,” the writer visits a small town in south central Vermont, birthplace of the nation’s 30th President, Calvin Coolidge. Be sure to look for Mike’s regular column in Monday’s edition of the Tribune-Star.
GRAPE SENSE: Unoaked Chard the perfect complement to a dish like Chicken Lyon
Everyone has heard the old wine/food pairing advice of red wine with red meat and white wine with fish or chicken.
For the most part, that’s not a bad guideline which will work more often than not. But as you really get into wine and start referring to yourself as a “foodie,” the simplistic advice just won’t work.
TRIED ’N’ TRUE: A recipe for a family who loves onions
In our family, we love onions. My sister, Pam, sent me this recipe.
When Gene and I were first married I made everything with onions (his mother didn’t flavor her meals). They were good old country meals — meat, potatoes, gravy and desserts.

Famous people filled the Riviera Country Club, a scenic golf resort in affluent Pacific Palisades, Calif.
A city block away, Sunset Boulevard runs toward the Pacific Ocean. The Santa Monica Mountains overlook it all. Inside the Riviera, during a 2009 fundraising dinner, Terre Haute attorney Tony Tanoos found himself surrounded by a who’s who of celebrities — actors such as Ray Romano, Mark Wahlberg, Don Cheadle and others, and golfing greats like Gary Player, Johnny Miller and Rocco Mediate. Soon, the crowd of notables heard the words of main speaker Lisa Paulsen, the president of the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
CHRIS DAVIES: Exercising with no ‘bells and whistles’
Recently at Fitness Solutions the joke has been “treadmills and cardio equipment are broken.” The truth is we don’t have any exercise machines that require electricity. This is for good reason.
MIKE LUNSFORD: The long goodbye to winter
I have no idea what the weather is to bring to us on the morning this story runs, but on the day I write most of it, the sun is shining, and we have just come off a weekend of pleasant warmth and cloudless skies.
GRAPE SENSE: News from the world’s wine regions can affect future prices
News from the world’s wine regions can affect even the average wine drinker. There is a lot going on, particularly in California, which can affect future wine prices.
TRIED ’N’ TRUE: The easiest ham loaf I’ve ever made
I have been asked for a good ham loaf recipe. This is really good. It comes from a friend of mine in Morton, Ill. Eileen Knapp makes this for her kids and grandkids — we all enjoyed it.

How they have accomplished this through the ages has been a fascination for local hairstylist Brenda Ellis for more than 50 years.

I know we all like homemade bread. These rolls are great.

YOUR GREEN VALLEY: We can help save the manatees, right here in the heartland
The year 2013 was the deadliest on record for manatees with about 829 reported deaths. This was a major jump from the 392 in 2012 and the record of 766 in 2010. While the cold weather played a role, one major attributing factor has been toxic red tide events caused by algal blooms.
