CHICAGO — Anticipating

heavy traffic on the government's health care website, the Obama a d m inistration

extended Monday's deadline for signing up for insurance by a day, giving Americans in 36 states more time to select a plan. It was the latest in a series

of pushed-back deadlines and delays that have marked the

rollout of the health care law. But federal officials urged buyers not to procrastinate.

"You should not wait until tomorrow. If you are aiming to get coverage Jan. I, you should try to sign up today," said Julie

SnOWden interVieW —National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden said his "mission's already accomplished" after leaking NSA secrets that havecaused a reassessment of U.S. surveillance policies. Snowdentold The Washington Post in an interview published online Mondaynight that he was satisfied because journalists have beenable to tell the story of the government's collection of bulk Internet and phonerecords, an activity that has grown dramatically in the decadesince the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. "For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission's already accomplished," he said. "I already won."

Obama enrolls in exchange insymbolic step

RuSSian punk dand priSOnerS — Thelast two imprisoned

In a symbolic step, President BarackObamahas quietly signed up for health coverage through the newinsurance exchanges, showing solidarity with Americans still struggling to figure out what Obama's signature health care lawmeansfor them. As commander in chief, the president receives his health care through the military, so his newcoverage will go unused. Rather, the move fulfills a commitment to personally participate that Obama made in2010, when hesigned into law the Affordable Care Act requiring millions of uninsured Americans to buy insurance or face apenalty. The White Housesaid Obama's decision to enroll demonstrated his support for the exchanges,thecornerstone of asweeping health overhaul whoserollout has beenmarred by cascading delays and widespreadtechnical problems. But Obama'senrollment experience offered little resemblance tothat of most Americanswho have shopped for plans through theglitch-prone website. Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii, did not personally enroll himself in a plan, anddidn't go through the website. Instead, staffers enrolled the president in person through theWashington, D.C. exchange, theW hiteHousesaid. White House officials noted that for security reasons, the president's personal information is not readily available in government databases that the exchangesuse toverify identities and check eligibility for tax subsidies.

members of the Russian punkband Pussy Riot walked free Monday, criticizing the amnesty measure that released them as a publicity stunt, with one calling for a boycott of the Winter Olympics to protest Russia's human rights record.

a lower temperature than regular salt brine, be enough to justify the additional hauling and storing requirements? If at first it sounded like a joke, the reality of tapping the wellspring of dairy byproduct has become a serious budget-slimming c o nversation. The state produced 2.7 billion pounds of cheese in 2012, the

most of any in the nation. With

it comes a surplus of brine that is shipped to local waste treatment plants. (Cheese brine is permitted on roads if limited

And Polk County, also near the Minnesota border, estimates that it saved $40,000 in rock salt expenses in 2009, the

year it started using cheese brine on its highways. "If you put dry salt on a roadway, you typically lose 30 percent tobounce and traffic," said Emil Norby, who works for Polk County and was the first in Wisconsin to come up with

the salt stick. The county has expanded its use of the material every year since, spreading more than 40,000 gallons on its highways last year. Chehalis, in Washington state, also uses an anti-icing mixture that includes cheese brine. Looking for rock salt alter-

FDA listens onproposed food safeg regulations ver since the federal Food and Drug A d m inistration came outwith proposed new rules to ensure food safety in this country,onion growers in Eastern Oregon have been crying the blues. Now, perhaps, they'll be able to dr Y those tears and move on. The FDA has decided to rewrite rules governing the irrigation of fruits and vegetables. Onion growers have said that the original proposal likely would be so costly to comply with it would put many of them out of business. Eastern Oregon and n eighboring Washington is the largest onion-growing area in the United States, with some 20,000 acres planted to bulb onions. The region accounts for about 25 percent of all bulb onions grown in the United States. The FDA, acting to fulfill requirements of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act, announced its new rules this spring. Water cleanliness rules proposed for bulb onion growers and others would have required weekly testing and treatment of irrigation water, a process the farmers say would be prohibitively expensive. They note that bulb onions,

which are cured in the sun after picking and peeled before eating, never have been the source of food illness. Too, farm groups say, the proposed rules would have required farmers to meet recreational standards for water cleanliness. Water quality rules aren't the only ones that will be reworked. Rules governing compost and raw manure use, of particular importance to organic farmers, also will be changed, as will rules that govern mixed-use facilities that do such things as combine farming and food processing. Americans are right to expect the FDA to live up to its charge to keep the nation's food supply safe. It could come close to doing that, no doubt, with rules so draconian that they drive food costs up dramatically or put whole segments of the agriculture community out of business. But even draconian rules could not guarantee 100 percent food safety 100 percent of the time. Rather, the agency must balance the competing need for food safety with th e a dded burden new regulations might create. It appears to be trying to do that by agreeing to reconsider irrigation and other rules.

WHAT'S AT STAKE A winning record, for OregonState, which started the year with six wins in sevengames but lost five straight to end the regular season. A win for Boise State would boost a team in transition, with coach Chris Petersen taking a job at theUniversity of Washington earlier this month.

Americans responded in October, propelling new-home sales more than 25 percent.

Xbox One,PlayStation 4 are tough gifts to comeby By Nick Wingfield New Yorh Times News Service

It might take a miracle from

the North Pole for video game fans to get their wish this season.

New game consoles from Sony and Microsoft are sold out in many stores, with Sony's

less expensive PlayStation 4 provingto be especially difficult for shoppers to find. The

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One had stronger sales during their first two weeks on the market

— more than 2 million each — than any previous game

console, according to DFC Intelligence, a game research firm in San Diego. The console business appears to be turning into a

two-horse race, with Sony and Microsoft jockeying for the lead and Nintendo eventually falling to a distant third. Nintendo's Wii U has had meager sales since it was in-

troduced last year, putting the company on its heels. Barring an unexpected turnaround,

Nintendo's position in the console market appears as if it will become increasingly marginal.

• Easy, elegantrecipes,including Alpenglow's famedcoffeecake By AlisonHighberger eFor The Bulletin

f you have company visiting over the holidays or folks staying with you for a ski weekend this winter, you may want to impress them with a homemade breakfastorbrunch. Funny how cold cereal just doesn't seem right when company's around. Something special in the morning says "welcome," and encourages people to linger at the table and chat, and isn't that what having houseguests is all about? Eat, talk, drink,

hang out, repeat. Since we don't want you to stress out

about cooking, we found some easy and impressive food ideas for you to try. You have enough to do to get ready: clean the house, find the nice towels, make beds and hide the clutter.

on her mother's tradition

by making this deliciously decadent eggnog to take to a friend's house for Christmas everyyear. She said itis"our guiltypleasure." Eggnog is one of the signature drinks of the holiday season, and with so much

commercially available, it's easy to forget how simple it is to make a fresh and fla-

vorfulbatch athome.

Requests Mary Ellen Shedon from Osceola, Ind., is seeking the recipefora dessertthatwas

Serve shrimp either hot or at room temperature, with the aioli for dipping.

As she recalls, this dessert was served in a trifle dish and had lasagna noodles, whipped cream, fruit and cake. She is not sure if this was something that the chef

made onlyforthe employees or if it also was served in the hotel restaurant.

Rinse squid. Cut bodies into /~-inch rings and halve tentacles. Transfer them to several paper towels to dry completely. Place a large skillet over high heat. Let pan get very hot, heating it for a good 5 minutes. Move half the squid from the papertowels to abowl, so they don't stick when you slide theminto the pan. Add1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Season squid with salt, slide them into the pan, and cook without moving for 1 minute. Flip squid and cook 30 seconds more. Repeatwith remaining squid and oil. Don't overcrowd the pan; if your skillet doesn't fit the squid comfortably, cook them in smaller batches. In a medium bowl, combine cooked squid with lime juice andzest, fish sauce, shallot, jalapeno and cilantro. Let stand at room temperature for1 hour (or refrigerate for up to 6hours, then bring to room temperature before serving). Taste andadjust seasoning if necessary. Serve mounded onto cucumber rounds or scooped into shot glasses (and served with a fork); sprinkle with peanuts.

Beat egg yolk in mixer until lemon colored, and then add sugar, beating constantly. Gradually (very gradually or you will curdle the egg yolks) while still beating, add the rum and brandy in a very slow stream. Set aside in refrigerator. An hour before serving beat the cream until stiff. Fold in yolk mixture thoroughly. Beat egg whites stiff. Fold into yolk-cream mixture, gently but thoroughly.

Unlucky Louie had gone to buy a Christmas tree and had found a perfect specimen — that wouldn't fit in his minivan. "We had to cut the top off to get the tree in," Louie told me. "You did what?" "It's OK," L o uie shrugged. "I always wanted a convertible minivan anyway." Louie is apt to do things the hard way — except as declan:r. At six diamonds, he took the ace of spades, cashedthe A-K of clubs for a spade discard, drew trumps and led the king of hearts. West won and led the queen of spades. Louie ruffed and ran his tnunps, but West clung to his hearts and won the 13th trick with the tcn.

Louie makes the slam with harder work. After he wins the first trick, he cashes five trumps. West can keep seven cards and must save the queen of spades. A heart discard is fatal, and if instead he keeps his hearts and throws two clubs, dummy's long clubs will be good. L ouie and I a n d al l m y c l u b members wish for my readers a holiday season of peace and joy.
