    Pumpkins have their moment every October. We all know the virtues of eating pumpkin: abundant anti-cancer beta-carotene, vitamin A, low calories, some iron, and a good dose of potassium for blood pressure regulation. This month you can find pumpkin in everything from waffles to pasta, coffee drinks and ice cream. If that’s not enough, here comes National Pumpkin Pie Day, which falls on Wednesday, October 12 this year. Pumpkin pies are easy to purchase in stores, but usually contain some questionable ingredients for shelf life stability. Why dilute the healthy benefits of pumpkin? I recommend you make your own. And if you, like me, have never been a big fan of pumpkin pie (it’s a texture thing) you can still create a pumpkin dessert that will be a worthy contribution to the festivities. I’ve rounded up a few to try.

    Our Department of Transportation (HIDOT) was recently in the news because it won a $4 million federal grant to come up with a “reimagining” of the taxes we currently pay to support our highways and bridges. (Although we still had to come up with $1.5 million in matching funds.) What does this mean for all of us?
