As Ivar always said, "Keep clam."

Smells fishy: Some Mukilteo city officials may be in hot chowder for gathering at Ivar's restaurant after a City Council meeting, possibly violating the state Open Meetings Act. A city councilwoman's tweet to those following her on Twitter touched off the clamor about the post-meeting fish fry.

To avoid further problems, the council will schedule all its meetings at the seafood institution. The public comment period will be changed to "All You Can Speak," roll call votes will be answered with, "Aye, Cap'n," and the mayor will trade his gavel for a pair of crab crackers.

And don't forget Mom; give her a card and include a list of phone numbers for the plumber, carpenter, electrician and auto mechanic.

Sweet! Good news, waffle fans: A bumper crop of maple sap means syrup prices should hold steady this year.

Just another subtle hint brought to you by the National Organization of Dads Who Enjoy Pancakes on Sunday Mornings.
