Laura woman dies in crash BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer The secret to great grilling If you want to master the art of grilling, you need to accept the idea that more heat isn’t necessarily better heat. In other words, just because your grill is able to crank out 60,000 BTUs doesn’t mean you should let it.That’s because the key to great grilling actually isn’t intense heat, but something far more nuanced called indirect heat. In fact, when I’m grilling, I use indirect heat at least 80 percent of the time. See Page A7.

In its third time running, Troy Main Street organizers sought to kick entertainment up a notch, while also focusing on expanding food selections. In response to informal feedback, many restaurants will offer special togo items, as some people said they prefer strolling through the free event rather than spending time inside eating. Bakehouse Bread & Cookie Company, for example, will sell grilled vegetable, margarita or Mediterranean flat breads by the slice. “We’re trying to have the restaurants provide food in a quick, convenient way. People like to walk around the event,” said Troy Main Street Executive Director Karin Manovich. Still, she said there’s no doubting the popularity of dining indoors or on the patios. “People really like eating out in downtown Troy,” Manovich said. “The patios are great, and people love • See ALIVE on Page A2 Recipes sought for cooking contest BY PATRICIA ANN SPEELMAN Ohio Community Media TROY mitted to any one of the three newspapers, but they may not be submitted to Recipes have been arriving by email and U.S. more than one newspaper.
