Ahead of new rules requiring chain restaurants to post calorie counts for their menu items, some of the restaurants are voluntarily introducing lower calorie selections. The new items tend to be salads rather than the main attractions such as burgers and pizza, but they contain an average of 60 fewer calories or a reduction of 12 percent, researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found. The researchers looked at new menu items in 2012 and 2013, ahead of new rules to offer the public nutritional information required by the Affordable Care Act. And they said the results, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, could be the beginning of a trend in calorie reduction at fast food restaurants that aids the obesity epidemic.

The U.S. Postal Service's "Harvest for the Hungry 2000" project, in which letter carriers pick up nonperishable food donations left at mailboxes for the Maryland Food Bank, will end tomorrow. Originally, the drive was to end March 18. "The extra week will allow us to collect twice as much food and help twice as many people," said Jim Nemec, Baltimore postmaster. "It's easy to donate. Just take your food items and leave them by your mailbox." As of yesterday, an estimated quarter-million pounds of food had been collected, about 200,000 pounds short of what is necessary to feed one meal to every impoverished family in the state, according to food bank officials.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Meadowbrook Elementary fifth-grader Mercedes Strawther nibbled on the salty, rectangular block of white cheese and decided she didn't like it because it was "gushy and nasty." Thumbs down, she marked on her evaluation sheet. Hugo Roman, 10, liked the charbroiled-flavor burger he tried because it "tastes like Burger King." With their taste buds on loan to the U.S. Agriculture Department, students judged - on color, smell and taste - a dozen other food items last week.

ORGANIZERS OF THE Linthicum Community Fair on Sept. 30 are planning something extra to boost contributions of items for those in need: a major food drive beforehand. Businesses have agreed to help by serving as drop-off locations for nonperishable food items. In past years, the public was asked to bring food items to the fair to help fill a pickup truck for the North County Emergency Outreach Network pantry. But the goal of collecting 2,000 food items was never met. At best, the total was about 400, not nearly enough to fill the truck.

It's night 23, back at camp after Tribal Council, and things are a little awkward. Troyzan has figured out that he doesn't have an alliance, and that it's way too late to do anything about it. While Troy and the women bicker, we see Leif sitting there silently. I hope that Troy causes such a fuss that the women forget about Leif and that he lasts a few more episodes. I think he's got a good chance of winning some immunity challenges, because he never gives up. About this time every season I try to pick out those that I like who might actually have a chance of winning.
