Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
RICHMOND, Va. — With terrain varying from the mountains to the coast, Virginia offers an array of fall colors for leaf-peepers. But before or after your drive along one of the state's many scenic byways, consider a fix of Southern city living with a visit to the state capital, Richmond. Located along Interstate 95, it's an easy stopping-off point. And whether you like the outdoors, art or history, there's plenty to do here — and you don't have to spend a dime.

HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut is a small state that can be crossed in a matter of hours, depending on traffic, offering relatively easy access for travelers looking to visit various corners of the state. One compact area packed with attractions is the southeastern region, which includes Long Island Sound and a popular shoreline state park, Yale University's hometown of New Haven, sites related to New England's maritime and military industry, and the University of Connecticut in the eastern part of the state. Here are five free things to do and see there.
As African-American males in Arizona, we are stunned, though not altogether surprised, at the bold assumptions, presumptions, and downright racist stereotypes Linda Turley-Hansen offers in “Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing” (East Valley Tribune, Sept. 1; also available at evtnow.com/5ua).
Plan now for an autumn full of fun in the East Valley.

FARGO, N.D. — It's a good time to be a North Dakotan. An oil boom in the west has fueled an economic surge, the locals' frugal nature helped to prevent any housing bubble, and the threat of global warming looks like an attractive option for the chilly climate. So why not visit the state's largest city, Fargo? With just over 100,000 people, this city on the eastern edge of the state offers local culture with a good dose of pride and quirkiness. You'll need a car to get around, but let's face it: If you're in Fargo, you probably drove here.
A miniature youth movement got underway this summer in the human resources department at two East Valley high schools, and it has nothing to do with the ages of incoming freshmen.
I applaud the headline over Tom Patterson’s guest commentary, “U.S. involvement in Syrian conflict a lose-lose proposition” (June 30, 2013), that protests yet another blundering intervention in the Middle East but who in their right mind does support this aggression? Then I remembered U.S. Sen. John McCain’s May 2013 trip to that war-torn land to meet with rebels and his promise of American support for their cause. Also Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, has been begging for U.S. military action for the past year. And please, do not forget the French, who seem eager for the U.S. taxpayer to fund another war.
Kokopelli, the dancing-Indian flute player with wild-flowing hair, carries a bag on his back rumored to contain seeds and magical tokens. Nah, he just likes to shop.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Navajo Code Talkers are legendary. Then there was Cpl. Ira Hamilton Hayes, the Pima Indian who became a symbol of courage and patriotism when he and his fellow Marines raised the flag over Iwo Jima in 1945.
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Mount Rushmore National Memorial may be the most famous landmark in the Black Hills of South Dakota, but it's not the only one.

One-pot chicken that is a blast of savory goodness
This one-pot chicken dinner by Kentucky chef Edward Lee blends a staple of Southern cooking — fried chicken — with two deliciously savory Asian ingredients, salty miso and a half pound of shiitake mushrooms. Together they produce a chicken that is tender and wildly flavorful with a thick sauce that is good enough to eat by the spoonful.
Though the recipe calls for bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, we also tested it with boneless, skinless thighs and found it just as delicious.
Start to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (30 minutes active)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
2 cups chopped yellow onions
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/3 cup bourbon
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark miso
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, thinly sliced
Cooked rice, to serve
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt, cayenne and garlic powder. Add the chicken and toss well to coat evenly.
In a medium Dutch oven over medium, heat the oil until it shimmers. Add the chicken pieces skin side down and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a paper-towel-lined plate. Set aside.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of oil from the pot. Reduce the heat to medium-low ad add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the bourbon and cook until all the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the chicken stock, orange juice, soy sauce and miso and bring to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pot, cover and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and tender, about 30 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and simmer, uncovered, until the mushrooms are tender and the sauce is thickened to the consistency of a gravy, about 10 to 15 minutes longer. Serve with rice.
