When you're as hungry as a bear

Once there was a bear named Rufus who couldn't get his fill of pancakes during his visits to town. It's a story maintained at Hungry Bear, the homey breakfast joint in Woodland Park. The pancakes looked scrumptious, but I picked from the "bear necessities" on the very-reasonably-priced menu. A hearty buttermilk biscuit is the centerpiece of "the mounty," with ham, eggs and shredded cheese hiding beneath a pool of sausage gravy, with a side of crispy, seasoned hash browns. Other popular selections include whopping burritos, omelets and crepes. Unlike Rufus, you'll leave satisfied. Located at 111 E. Midland Ave., 80863.

Bye-bye overdue library fines

With their overdue book fines hovering, kids and teens have always and forever been losing all their library privileges. Pikes Peak Library District has changed it all around. They want kids and teens using their libraries! No more fines for those missed-the-return-date children and teen items but youngsters do have to bring everything back and in good shape. More than 21 days after due date, it's considered lost - cause it probably is - and there's a replacement bill. PPLD, (library.ppld.org) has libraries and branches all around the area.
