TV Highlights Feb. 10-16 

SOAP BOX DERBY Speed (Comcast. Ch. 46) 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13 In this age of disposable toys, “concerned parent” groups and litigation gone haywire, there is something oh-so-quaint about the idea of kids nailing lawnmower wheels on a packing crate and pushing it down a hill. Okay, the cars that run in the All-American Soap Box Derby, run since 1934, are a little more complex than that — some designed in wind tunnels and built of space-age materials — but the principle is the same. Boys and girls aged 9-16 compete in gravity-powered racers, shooting for a berth at the world championships in Akron, Ohio, this August. Tune in, and root for your favorite. WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW 7 p.m. Monday, Feb 14 USA Network (Comcast Ch. 26) If you’re a cat person, just go ahead and turn the page right now. If you’re a dog person, however, then the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show might be right up your alley (snooty, purebred doggies aside). Now in its 129th year — the second-longest running annual sporting event in America (the Kentucky Derby has been held longer) — the Westminster Dog Show is the place to be for those looking to get their pooch on. This year’s show will feature 165 unique breeds, with more than 2,500 dogs in attendance, all shooting for the coveted Best of Show award. Still, it’s gonna take a lot of plastic baggies to clean all that up. ON THE SAME PAGE: JOHN T. EDGE AETN (Comcast Ch. 3, Broadcast Ch. 2) 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16 We really, really, really like food. We write about it, we stuff our gobs with it, and — if we’re not careful — we end up wearing it long after lunchtime is done. We must admit that we are rank amateurs, however, compared to John T. Edge. A frequent contributor to Gourmet magazine and the Oxford American (he guest-edited the OA’s upcoming special issue on Southern food), Edge is one of America’s true food-o-philes, having written four books on the subject, including “Fried Chicken: An American Story.” Here, AETN’s On the Same Page series talks to Edge about his books, with a panel on hand (including Arkansas Times editor Max Brantley) to keep his fat in the fire.
