Dear Heloise: Several years ago, I bought my wife a new cast iron frying pan that is now starting to develop small rust spots on the cooking surface. I later learned that cast-iron pans are supposed to be "seasoned" to prevent this from happening. Can this pan be fixed, or should we just buy a new one? And what is the proper care of cast-iron cookware? -- Jim T., via email
For many college freshmen, the first day of college is the first time in their lives they choose when, where and what they eat. Suddenly, the high school routine of breakfast, lunch, occasional snacks and home-cooked meals changes into daily visits to the burger or chicken sandwich emporiums and midnight pizza runs. The daily workout routine of track, basketball, softball and cheerleading practice is replaced with daily walks to various dining halls and late-night meals while studying.
Cobia is a sleek and powerful fish that devours flesh and doesn't apologize for it. Open its belly and anything might pop out -- crab, squid, smaller fish, you name it. Recently, three Baltimore researchers -- Aaron Watson, Frederic Barrows and Allen Place -- set out to tame this wild and hungry fish sometimes called black salmon. They didn't want to simply domesticate it; hundreds of fish farmers have already done that. They sought to turn one of the ocean's greediest carnivores into a vegetarian.

"We maintain the peace through our strength; weakness only invites aggression." -- Ronald Reagan, March 23, 1983 President Reagan's speech to the nation 30 ago launched a major arms buildup to confront the expanding military power and political aspirations of the Soviet Union. It followed the disastrous presidency of Jimmy Carter, whose nonperformance during the Iran hostage crisis led to the perception in the Muslim world that America was weak and had lost its resolve to confront enemies.
