HAM Director Bill Worthen puts his ancestral Nicholas Peay recipe up against the punchbowl secrets of Cache Restaurant, Loblolly Creamery,  John Selig and Lea Elenzweig, Stone's Throw Brewing, Heritage Grille, One Eleven at the Capital Hotel and Rock City Eats.

Who will win the prize for best noggin'? It's up to you, and while you are there at the HAM, check out the new exhibit of larger-than-life

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
