Wakey wakey

Wakey wakey

Who's not a morning person: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that teenagers' school days begin no earlier than 8:30 a.m., because forcing them to get up at the crack of dawn causes poor health, bad grades and car crashes.

And that's just for the teens. For their parents, side effects of early school starts can include chronic nagging syndrome, uneaten breakfast disorder, and uncontrollable repetition of the words “Get up. I'm not going to tell you again.”

That wine's real fine, you betcha: A wine grape grower in the Horse Heaven Hills near Richland is growing a type of red wine grape developed in Minnesota to withstand harsh northern winters.

And since the grapes hail from Minnesota, wine made from them pairs well with cabbage rolls, deep fried cheese curds and Tater Tot hotdish.

Vape away: The American Heart Association has given cautious backing to electronic cigarettes as a last resort to help smokers quit.

A nicotine product hasn't gotten this kind of medical endorsement since the More Doctors Smoke Camels ad campaign of the 1950s.
