I’m posting this from the Word Press app on my iPhone, mostly just because I wanted to see if I could and what it would look like.
This shot’s from a few weeks ago, it’s hanging around on my iPhone though because I sent it into the paper from my new 6D via the Canon iPhone app.
If you haven’t had the chance to play around with the wifi capabilities of the 6D, it pretty darn cool.
After we ran this photo and a story about this fellow’s new restaurant in St. George and wrote about his tale of beating Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America the Food Network called and said “never heard of ‘em.”
Numerous Google searches only confirmed that other media outlets, including the SL Trib when they wrote about him opening the restaurant at Eagle Point Ski Resort when they opened a couple years ago, had also written about him beating Bobby Flay. But no show record, he’s not on the list of contestants on Wikipedia (although that is Wikipedia), and he’s not listed anywhere on the Food Network site.
So we ran a correction.
What I wonder is, will he still hang the plaque up in his restaurant?
FOR THE RECORD
An article on the front of Sunday’s Southern Utah Life section about Chef Craig Haslebacher identified him as a winner of the Food Network program “Iron Chef America,” during which, he said, he beat celebrity Chef Bobby Flay.
Food Network has disputed Haslebacher’s claim, saying the company has no record of Haslebacher ever appearing on the show. Haselbacher was also pictured with a plaque featuring the show’s signature crossed knives, which he said the network sent him.
Irika Slavin, vice president of communications and public relations for Food Network, said via email that her company does not make or give plaques.
Other media outlets in Utah and Washington state have previously identified Haslebacher as an “Iron Chef America” competitor in various stories. However, this appears to be the first time Haslebacher’s claims have come to the attention of Food Network.
When contacted Monday about the Food Network response, Haslebacher stood behind his claims, saying he knows what happened and that he was at Food Network.
Would you spend over 24 hours camped in a parking lot waiting in line to get free chicken? These folks are.
And on a side note, does anybody know the official rules to four square? I swear I remember overhand hits being illegal when I was a kid but my boys tell me they’re allowed on the playground at their school and there were all kinds of overhand shots being hit in this game.
I gotta say, underhand only makes the game far more challenging.
Sadly, our website template can’t facilitate gifs. The closest alternative we can do is a sort of swipe thing that overlays the two images and interchanges them as you move your cursor over the image.
So far it’s been a bit buggy, you may need to refresh the pages every now and again to make the swipes work.
It’s up on our site now, love to hear what you all think.
The Jazz Bear came to encourage the kids at Coral Cliffs Elementary School to say no to bear rugs and drugs, eat right and exercise. One little kid heckled him about halfway through the assembly and the bear carted him out of the gym.
The kid came back in and after the bear picked up his teacher I took this frame. Lucky for the kid, he didn’t actually grab the bears tail, I think he might have gotten mauled.
