Once again, the blood is on the ice. Two decades ago, images of the baby harp seal tugged at the world's heartstrings. Fat, fluffy and fresh-faced, their big black eyes seemed the epitome of innocence peering from pillows of dewy white fur. Then came news pictures of their skulls crushed by clubs and their pelts yanked from bloody, and very small, carcasses. Public outcry prompted the Canadian government to ban sales of the youngest pups and the U.S. and Europe to ban imported pelts.

Frenchman Patrick Mathey comes out of the kitchen of his restaurant, Chez Patrick. The mussels in a light wine sauce are superb. So too, he offers, is the loup-marin a la canneberge--seal in a brown sauce with cranberries. "I've eaten giraffe, crocodile, antelope. The seal is the best. Ah, oui," he declares. A few miles up the road, Le P'tite Baie offers a $20 fixed-price menu: vegetable soup, choice of scallops, cod in lobster sauce, chicken curry or seal bourguignonne, with dessert and coffee.

Lucas the hound lived an independent life in Canada for 3 1/2 years. He ate well enough and fared even better with the females. No more, though. On Thursday, the black-and-tan dog was reunited with his master, Earl Cash at the Greenville-Spartanburg airport, where he received a hero's welcome. Children wore signs welcoming the dog while television cameras and microphones were thrust in his snout. "You rascal you," said Cash, attaching a yellow ribbon to his long-lost hunting buddy's collar.
FOOD
November 4, 2009 | By Russ Parsons
Food is covered in all kinds of magazines these days, including lifestyle publications such as Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle and Sunset and personality-driven magazines like those run by first-name-only icons such as Paula, Sandra and Rachel. Then there is Martha, whose magazine is both. But there is a hard core of dedicated food magazines still devoted to food, each in its particular (not to say, necessarily, peculiar) way. Because food is not the prime motivator for either lifestyle or personality magazines (in the first case, it's just part of the mix; in the second, it's as much celebrity as pure content that drives the operation)

The black lacquer coffee table is polished to plate-glass perfection, and the black couches are linear and spotless. Ford is fresh off the plane from pheasant hunting in Canada. His host was Lawrence Stroll, the entrepreneur who bankrolls Michael Kors, among other brands.

The Interior Department on Wednesday designated the polar bear as threatened with extinction because of shrinking sea ice, making it the first creature added to the endangered species list primarily because of global warming. The designation under the Endangered Species Act requires the agency to identify critical habitat to be protected and to form a strategy to assist the bear population's recovery.

Beau Maggart used to make axles, but last week he was seated at a computer screen typing his resume into a databank. Laid off a month ago from Dana Corp.'s axle plant here, he had been making as much as $80,000 a year, thanks to copious overtime. After a failed job search, he came to this "transition center" set up by his union to help former employees find work.
