Dorothy Williams waves goodbye to Pomaikai Senior Center seniors a few days before she head to Hollywood. Williams, 90, made national headlines earlier this month when she performed a comedic striptease on “America’s Got Talent.” Williams will next appear on the show at 7 p.m. tonight on NBC — not Aug. 2 as previously scheduled — during a live voting episode. She is asking Hilo residents to tune in and vote to help her advance. “I feel I’m a role model for senior citizens so they can keep doing things no matter how old they get or what befalls them in life,” she told the Tribune-Herald.

Summer squash reproduces so energetically that calling it prolific is understating the case. Still, why not take advantage of its bounty? Here I slice the squash into long ribbons and employ it as “pasta.” Use a mandoline (be sure to use the guard that comes with it), although a Y-shaped peeler will also work.
