    Recipe: Bell peppers are the stars in this version of braised chicken
    My mother was a green bell pepper enthusiast. I assume her generous use of the shamrock-green peppers was fueled by their high vitamin C content. When I unwrapped the green slices in my lunchbox, my friends would call Mom a “health nut,” an apt title derived from her never-ending study and discussion of nutrition.

    Unless pension reforms are instituted, taxpayers in many parts of the U.S. will soon be paying more for former government employees than the current public workforce. According to the League of California Cities, by 2024 California cities and towns will see more than half, possibly as much as 63% of public payroll, go toward retiree pension costs.
