Myers: A brutal killing becomes an act of grace

A couple of years ago, I read a story in this very newspaper about a man named Glen Mitchell. He lived in Jacksonville, Fla., and had a 13-year-old son named Jeff. One day Jeff was shot and killed by four boys while he was waiting for Glen to pick him up from school. One of the boys, Ellis Curry, later pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and spent 12 years in prison.

Thompson: Some prep keeps burgers from over-plumping

Here's a hamburger grilling tip that I bet you've never heard. Have you ever noticed that when grilling a hamburger it tends to plump in the middle? To avoid this, make an indentation in the center of the patty before you put it on the grill. The indentation should be around two inches in diameter and about half of the thickness of the burger.

Cook: A silly tale for fans of Middle Earth

You can pretty much guess from the title alone: "Muddle Earth," a trilogy of short novels following the adventures of a young boy magically transported to a whimsical world of elves and magical creatures, is largely a parody of the "Lord of the Rings" series by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Thompson: Make sure fruit won’t ripen all at once

When buying fruit at the store, buy some pieces that are already ripe and some that are not quite ripe. By doing this you minimize having to eat over-ripe fruits and reduce chances of the fruit going bad before you can eat it. By the way, people don't realize that you can break up a bunch of bananas when you're in the store.
