Dear Sheila, Just a note to let you know that I am starting my New Year's resolutions early. ItRead More keeps bugging me that The Patch as well as the Weekly Times-Observer keep referring to "The Town Plaza" as Town Plaza Park. The dictionary tells us that "Plaza" and "Park" both basically mean the same...."a gathering place". It is officially known by Town Records as "The Town Plaza". I look forward to your referring to this in the future. I hope this doesn't spoil your New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your staff. John Lochner

My son suffers from celiac disease. Cross-contamination ( people who prepare gluten-free productsRead More in the vicinity of foods with gluten or using the same implements (spoons, knives, pans, etc.) as the regular food can put him in the hospital with bleeding in the small intestinal tract. Those who think being gluten-free is healthier or help them lose weight are trivializing the real concern for that small minority who really need "gluten-free" food. I doubt Dunkin' Donuts' "gluten free" donuts are being prepped in a separate kitchen from the regular donuts - which would be required for them to be free from cross contamination. I am betting the person serving the donuts, uses the same tongs to pick up the donuts that aren't gluten-free ensuring cross-contamination. Therefore, they really aren't gluten free. This is why the FDA recently passed regulations to prevent advertising foods as gluten free when they are not prepared properly, to protect those who will get seriously ill from eating food which is not really gluten-free and to protect those who suffer from celiac from the faddists who demand a "gluten-free" salad (leave out the croutons) and then pour a salad dressing filled with gluten (wheat is used in most salad dressings as a thickening agent) on top of their "gluten-free" salad, feeling oh-so-holy. A better story would be exposing all the restaurants and food places (like Dunkin' Donuts) hoping to cash in on a food fad who fail to comply with the strict requirements that would allow them to really say their food is gluten-free. For example, many restaurants offer "gluten-free" pasta, but prep it in the same area as the regular food, so cross-contamination occurs - making the food - not so gluten-free, after all - and a health-risk for those who really do need to avoid gluten. Maybe a list of places who advertise "gluten-free" but aren't really safe for celiacs would be a better service?

I happened to go by when it was open, so went inside. There was a $3 charge, which there has neverRead More been before and isn't stated in any of the announcements. The exhibit is small, it is a small museum and it occupies only about 2/3 of the floor space. There were some artifacts, but mostly text and picture boards. I found it interesting. I changed my mind about Wood and Field, found them more likable. Many of their friends were featured. When I got home, I looked them up on the Internet. An interesting group of people.
