"J" IS FOR JAIL!


“Sesame Street” is offering a new program that helps kids deal with incarcerated parents. “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration” is aimed at kids, ages 3 to 8.

Tips include:

“Before you visit your incarcerated loved one, let your child know some of the things she can expect to happen. For instance, ‘We won’t be able to sit in the same room with Mommy, but we can see her through a window and read a story together.’ ’’

“Phone calls are a great way to reach out. Help your child to think of something she’d like to tell her incarcerated parent, and give her a photo of her parent to hold during the call.”

“When explaining where an incarcerated parent is, you can say, ‘Daddy is in a place called prison (or jail) for a while. Grownups sometimes go to prison when they break a rule called a law.’ ’’

AMERICA'S WACKIEST FAIR FOODS



Arizona: mealworm-covered caramel apples. Along with deep-fried crickets, the Arizona Exposition & State Fair's Chef du' Jour booth sold caramel apples dipped in mealworms

Florida: cheeseburger with fried ice cream. One Florida State fairgoer rationalized the appeal of a cheeseburger topped with deep-fried ice cream by describing the salty-sweet hybrid as a "milk-shake burger."

Indiana: hot beef sundae. When state fairgoers tired of the iconic rib eye steak sandwich, Indiana's Beef Cattle Association invented the Hot Beef Sundae, layered with mashed potatoes, marinated beef, gravy, cheese, corn "sprinkles" and a cherry tomato.

Texas: fried beer. Even alcohol can be fried when it's pocketed in pretzel dough. The food innovation won the 2010 Big Tex Choice Awards at the Texas State Fair.

Montana: fried butter balls. While the Montana State Fair is famous for its Big Sky ProRodeo Roundup, Paula Deen wannabes and other fried-food enthusiasts head for the deep-fried butter balls.

Kansas: pickle pop. The Kansas State Fair's answer to a freezer pop — filled with briny pickle juice — is a chilling, supersour pairing for the region's famous barbecue.

California: python kebabs. After realizing that visitors to the California Exposition & State Fair wanted more adventurous foods, vendor George Sandefur changed his offerings from chicken to foods that "taste like chicken." Grilled python kebabs seasoned with Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, Old Bay and lemon-pepper are a new favorite.
