Happy Fathers Day to all the dads who care for and comfort their kids-and all those who give support when others cannot. Many of us have dads of the heart,and they are truly as special. So give thanks with food and memories and whatever you choose as a prayer, for those who care and nurture.

You'll find the Georgetown Working League at the North End of the Park, selling tickets for their legendary quilt raffle, scheduled for August 10. They'll be here most weeks til then Check out the center panel they brought along ; their quilts are always beautiful and well crafted and go to support the people of Georgetown.

From Tracy at Pemaquid Lobster & Seafood "We are running a Father's Day special, offering Scallop Casseroles two for $20. That is a savings of $5 on two. It's a quick and easy meal idea. Many of our customers serve it over rice or pasta."

Eban uses this marinade on his husky, nicely marbled sirloin, to good effect.

Start with soy sauce and bourbon. Mix with a bit of apple cider vinegar, chopped garlic and ginger, salt and red pepper flakes. marinate 1-5 days. Grill and be happy.I
