A local charter school is moving into its new location just in time for the beginning of the school year.

When fall rolls around and it's back to school and work, wouldn't you love to start your day with something tastier and more substantial than that all-too-typical bowl of cold cereal? It's just so boring day after day. And that's apart from the fact that most cereals will fail to tide you over until lunchtime.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — To many, Tennessee means whiskey. But inside the state, the question is: What does Tennessee whiskey mean?
The sweet, slightly acidic flavor of fresh strawberries begs for a rich, crunchy accompaniment. And for that, we turned to pistachios.
Beef may claim to be what's for dinner in America, but in the Middle East that honor often goes to lamb. It's prepared in innumerable ways, but my favorite is when the lamb is ground, spiced and grilled, then topped with some kind of yogurt sauce and finally tucked into a pita. And that's how we're rolling here.
If you haven't yet tried halloumi — often also called Greek grilling cheese — let this recipe for a romaine salad be your excuse.

Mother’s Day has been an official U.S. holiday since 1914. It was originally started here in the U.S. by Anna Jarvis in 1908. Mother’s Day celebrations honoring mothers can be traced back to festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, by ancient Greeks and Romans. Early roots include the Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.”
I’m sure there’s an audience out there for Neighbors, the new Seth Rogen comedy about irresponsible parents battling an even more irresponsible college fraternity that moves in next door to them; but the amount of drug and alcohol abuse, profanity, sex and crudity in this neighborhood would have Mr. Rogers rolling in his grave.
GLASGOW, Scotland — The image of Scotland's largest city as a hard and dirty industrial center is long gone. Instead, this former European Capital of Culture is now widely regarded as one of Britain's most lively and stylish urban destinations. It boasts the best shopping experience in the U.K. outside of London and is home to a variety of annual festivals celebrating everything from rock music and comedy to literature and the arts.

They’re available for snacking on site or to take home. Get a full description of the dishes at the festival’s website, and like it on Facebook to get two free admission passes.
Fresh mint so rarely gets its due in America. We gladly pair it with chocolate and fruit, but it almost never makes appearances in savory dishes. But the rest of the world knows better, adding it with abandon to all manner of savory dairy, vegetable and meat dishes. That's because a little bit of its naturally sweet, herby flavor can go a long way to playing up the savory elements of a dish.
Asparagus has been a delicious symbol of spring since at least as far back as the Greeks, who called it asparagos — literally, "to spring up." But however it is spelled, it makes me happy.
Arizona State University’s English department is about to get medieval.
Learning didn’t always come easy for 23-year-old Scottsdale native Daniel Mazzon, as teachers said his ability to listen and comprehend the material was below average. But instead of going through the motions, Mazzon opted to venture on his own and apply the skills he had to a different project.
