Yogi again!!! Readers get another front page of stale news

Baking a sweet potato until the natural sugar oozes out. Unless you want to gain wait or clog your arteries, ignore Record freelancer Nina Rizzo's advice in the Better Living section today that the only way to enjoy sweet potatoes is to add butter, heavy cream and sugar to them.


Editor Martin Gottlieb of The Record is filling the front page today with more warmed-up old news: 

Yogi Berra, Afghanistan, the faked Planned Parenthood video and Pope Francis.

Local news

The local-news section today is filled with non-profit news, as it is every Monday (Local).

On L-1, there are stories about a food drive, special games and hundreds of motorcyclists -- some of whom delight in violating local anti-noise ordinances -- on a run to raise money for charity.

Inside, three of the five municipal news stories are from Little Falls, Pompton Lakes and Lincoln Park (L-2 and L-3), and there's not a single word about Hackensack, Teaneck or Englewood.

Food news

Nina Rizzo, a food writer for the Asbury Park Press, ignores all of the Record readers who are diabetic or watching their weight and cholesterol with sweet-potato recipes filled with butter, heavy cream and sugar (BL-1 and BL-2).

Missing is a recipe for mashed sweet potatoes with heart-healthy extra-virgin olive oil and seasonings, including curry powder, cinnamon, red-pepper flakes and garlic powder. 

In a sidebar comparing sweet potatoes and yams, she doesn't explain the latter are starchier and have more calories.
