New York school district puts 2-pack limit on condiments for students 

A school district in New York has decided to limit students to dispensing two 9-gram packs of condiments per meal, Newsday reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Eastport-South Manor Assistant Superintendent Timothy Laube sent a letter to parents Tuesday that explained that the condiment crackdown was a move toward healthier eating habits for children and stricter adherence to federal and state nutrition guidelines, the newspaper reported.

Children will still be allowed to bring extra condiment packets to school. Laube wrote.

Last year, the school adopted packets after moving away from pump dispensers, Newsday reported.

"I haven't seen any kids complaining about ketchup, and I talk to the cashier staff and the kids don't seem to have an issue with it," Laube told the newspaper.

School board member Jeff Goldhammer said the new guidelines “are not a big deal” to his three school-age children, Newsday reported..

"I can understand it seems like a silly issue, but kids are only supposed to have a certain amount of calories,” Goldhammer told the newspaper.

‘Real Housewives’ star coming to Centerville

A “Real Housewives” star with a “rags to riches” story is heading to Centerville.

>> RELATED: Bravo’s newest ‘Housewife’ is a Butler County native

Emily Simpson, a 1994 graduate of Middletown’s Madison High School, is scheduled to make a special appearance at Turbo Zone Fitness, 7917 S Suburban Drive, Centerville, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, Erica Monbeck, the gym’s owner, said. 

Simpson, the newest member of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County,” will be in town to visit family members. 

Monbeck does not plan to be at the event. 

Just diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, she expects to be recovering from a mastectomy during Simpson’s appearance.

The Centerville resident encourages women to get the mammograms as recommended, saying her cancer may have been spotted earlier if she had done so.

“I think it could have been prevented,” she said. “I just want to bring awareness. 

Monbeck said the meet and greet with Simpson will be free, but she plans to make the event a fundraiser for a local breast cancer organization. 

Details are still being arranged. 

Sara Moffitt, a 1997 Madison grad and Simpson’s sister, is one of Monbeck’s clients at the “boutique gym” that offers personal training and a list of  circuit style classes that includes tabata, circuits, booty camp and straight strength. 

Moffitt, the surrogate for Simpson’s children, helped arrange the meet and greet. 

Calling Simpson “cool people,” Monbeck said she is a fan of her show and her close-knit family.

Christina Lawrence and her fiance were walking Jack Daniels, a chocolate lab-golden retriever, when the dog yelped, the television station reported.

"Walking around daily, you see caps (to needles) lying in the road and stuff like that, needles themselves" Kodi Lillie told WISN. "You go up and down 13th (Street) and you see them all over the place."

"It hurts. He's my baby," Lawrence told the television station. "So, I'm just wanting to warn everybody, parents especially."

Veterinarians told WISN that if a dog steps on a sharp object like a needle, make sure the animal gets medical attention. Pet owners also should monitor swelling and watch for infection, the television station reported.

Kourtney Kardashian is reminiscing on her trip to Bali!

On Thursday, Kardashian, 39, shared a sweet Instagram photo from her Indonesian vacation, which showed her and ex Scott Disick posing alongside their two sons Mason and Reign Disick.

In the photo, the mother of three can be seen throwing up the hang loose hand sign while wearing a turquoise bra top paired with green trousers. Meanwhile, Scott, 35, opted for a surf pose as Mason, 8, and Reign, 3, mimicked him.

Scott previously shared photos from their family trip on Instagram.

MInnesota great-grandma marries boyfriend she rebuffed in 1954

It took more than six decades, but a Minnesota great-grandmother finally wed her teenage sweetheart.

>> Read more trending news 

Janet Skillingstad, 82, married Gene Ertel, 81, on Oct. 26 -- 64 years after she broke off their engagement, KARE reported.

“Not too many people get a second chance,” Ertel told the television station.

In 1954, Skillingstad returned the engagement ring Ertel gave her, telling him she wanted to concentrate on nursing school.

“I didn't want to tie him down for three years,” Skillingstad told KARE. “I thought I was doing the right thing at the time.”

The couple moved on, marrying other people and raising families. Both of them lost spouses -- Ertel became a widower twice -- but the teenage boy never forgot his girl.

“I never stopped thinking about her,” Ertel told the television station.

When Ertel was diagnosed with prostate cancer in December, he decided to find Skillingstad. He hired a private investigator, who produced a telephone number, KARE reported.

“When I called her, I said, ‘Don't hang up, this is not a prank call,’” Ertel told the television station.

The couple talked for 90 minutes. That blossomed into a visit from Ertel, and then a date.

Two months after the ice-breaking phone call, Ertel gave Skillingstad a ring. This time, she kept it, KARE reported.

Skillingstad’s daughter, Ruth Beniek, said her mother would not reject Ertel this time.

“‘(She said) ‘I couldn't turn him down a second time, that would be devastating,’” Beniek told the television station.

Michelle Obama Reveals Things She Could Not Say as First Lady: 'Clooney Is My Freebie'

Michelle Obama is no longer in the White House, and according to Jimmy Kimmel, that means she’s entitled to saying (or reading) whatever she wants!

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, the former first lady, 54, played a game with the late-night host where she read off statements that she wasn’t allowed to say while in office.

Prior to starting the game and handing her the cards, Kimmel, 51, acknowledged how Obama “had to be very careful” about what she said as First Lady. “As far as I’m concerned, you can really cut loose and say anything now!” the host joked.

As the game was underway, Obama kept the crowd laughing as she read aloud the hilarious statements.

Some of them went against her White House initiatives and signature phrases (“I’ve never eaten a vegetable” and “I stole the phrase ‘When they go low, we go high’ from the back of a Snapple cap”) while others were simply funny on their own. “The whole 8 years we were in the White House, we used Laura Bush’s Netflix password,” Obama said.

Even though most of the statements were false and did not actually apply to Obama’s life, there were two that she admitted to having some truth behind.

The first was accidentally mixing up daughters Sasha, 20, and Malia, 17, which the former first lady confessed, “They agree. They get so mad every time I mess their names up.”

As for the second, Obama read aloud, “[George] Clooney is my freebie,” and once Kimmel agreed with her, she then clarified, “He’s all of our freebies!”

Michelle Obama's new memoir

Since her memoir Becoming hit bookstores Tuesday, Obama has been busy making stops around the country for her speaking tour — which kicked off on Tuesday night in Chicago alongside her close friend Oprah Winfrey — and promoting her new book-inspired merchandise line.

In addition to her Kimmel appearance, Obama spoke at L.A.’s The Forum, where Tina Lawson, Shonda Rhimes and moderator Tracee Ellis Ross were in attendance.

The mother of two is scheduled to stop and speak in Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Detroit, Denver, San Jose, and Dallas, where she will have candid conversations with some of her “dearest friends,” including Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey on Tuesday night

In Becoming, Obama opens up like never before about her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, her romance with her husband, former President Barack Obama, 57, and their life before and after the White House.

“My husband is making his own adjustments to life after the White House, catching his own breath,” she writes. “And here I am, in this new place, with a lot I want to say.”

And speak she does. From marital rough patches and fertility struggles, to her feelings about her husband’s successor, President Donald Trump, Obama says her new memoir is “candid and honest and open.”

She first revealed the cover of her memoir back in May with an Instagram post, where she explained that the writing process had been “meaningful and illuminating” for her.

“I’m thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING,” Mrs. Obama wrote. “The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be.”

Obama added, “Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own. #BECOMING”

Legacies recap: A trip to Mystic Falls High takes gross turn

The episode opens with Alaric and Sheriff Matt Donovan (jokes!) holding the boarding school’s version of an assembly to discuss Dana and Sasha’s disappearances. And the sight of Matt Donovan lecturing students immediately made me imagine him turning into some kind J.J. Bittenbinder-like speaker, which would be the most amazing and ridiculous thing in the world and The CW needs to create a web series where frazzled Sheriff Matt lectures human students about supernatural danger immediately. But, I digress…

During the meeting, Alaric announces that he’s going to send some volunteers undercover in Mystic Falls High to gather intel that may help them find the missing girls. Feeling empowered by defeating the gargoyle last week, Lizzie dramatically stands up and offers herself as tribute because she’s a hero and capable of setting aside her hatred for Dana long enough to help her. Lizzie is a full-on drama queen and I love it. Hope, MG, and Kaleb, whom MG suspects of killing Dana since he’s been feeding on humans, also volunteer. Landon also tags along because he went there and because he wants to prove his worth so they’ll let him stay at the boarding school.

What’s great about the episode’s trip to Mystic Falls High is that the show doesn’t go out of its way to tug on longtime fans’ heartstrings. It didn’t drop in on Alaric’s old classroom or give us any library set scenes that were supposed to remind of us that one detention episode. No, instead we get a tight story that’s focused on the task at hand: the kids ignoring Alaric’s orders to stay together and splitting up to figure out what happened to Dana.

Landon tags along with Hope, who is still giving him the cold shoulder and eventually abandons him when some cheerleaders invite her to have lunch with them. Of course, MG teams up with Lizzie, which ends up not being the best idea because he’s so distracted by how well she pulls off polyester that his attempts at compelling answers out of a student during gym class fail. It’s right then that Alaric calls Lizzie and tells him that they found Dana’s corpse in the woods and it looks like she was killed by a vampire.

Meanwhile back at school, Raf and Josie are busy hanging out at lunch. Unfortunately, their cute conversation is rudely interrupted by the school’s alpha werewolf, who wants Raf to submit to the pack. Pack mentality is all new to Raf, so when Josie exits stage right to get away from the “storm of toxic masculinity,” he follows her. Alas, the conflict doesn’t end there, and the wolves corner Raf later in the episode and give him an option: Submit by revealing how he triggered his curse, or get beaten up and then submit. Thankfully, Josie helps Raf choose option C and uses magic to stop the wolves from hurting Raf. The fight leaves Raf bursting with anger and he runs off.

Next: Spider-Man is shook

After getting off the phone with Alaric, MG comes clean to Lizzie about his suspicions that Kaleb killed Dana; Hope and Landon reached the same conclusion when they saw cheerleaders walking around the school with scarves on their necks, which is a sign that someone has been feeding on them. The kids confront Kaleb, who denies killing Dana and Sasha. And that’s when Dana comes stumbling out of the woods.

Of course, everyone immediately thinks that she’s transitioning into being a vampire, and there’s some fun back and forth about what they should do with her. But, Anna starts coughing up her liquified insides right as they make a decision and dies, leaving only her skin, which is the biggest clue that they actually aren’t dealing with a vampire and perhaps the grossest thing these shows have ever done. While I’m grossed out, I’m also pleased to see the show getting into some body horror.

With his name cleared, Kaleb suggests that maybe Landon the Walking Question Mark is responsible for what happened to Dana. Hope is still pissed and doesn’t even step up defend him, which is pretty harsh.

Meanwhile, Josie finds Raf having an anger tantrum in that abandoned home where they throw parties. Using her experience with Lizzie’s tantrums, she helps him calm down in a pretty tender moment. Then, Raf notices a massive spider web on the second floor, and when they head up to investigate, they discover Sasha encased in webs and end up getting stuck there themselves. At the same time, the Mystic Falls contingent figures out what kind of monster they’re dealing with thanks to MG’s nerd porn comic book and Landon punching the skin off of his bully Connor’s face, revealing gross mouth fangs in the process: An arachnid, a monstrous and mythological spider that takes the form of its prey (read: humans), as he’s reading his comic.

Connor/arachnid returns to his hideout. Thinking on her feet, Josie kisses Raf because dram and, more importantly, she needs to siphon power from something or someone magical in order to perform magic and she couldn’t reach Raf’s hands. The ploy works and she gains enough power to set the Arachnid on fire. But all that does is burn off Connor’s body to reveal a gigantic spider. Thankfully, the Mystic Falls team manages to track the arachnid down. Josie gets free, and she, Lizzie, and Hope join hands and cast a spell that explodes the spider into a bunch of disgusting pieces. Yay, for teamwork!

This was a particularly important win for Lizzie, who was determined to be a hero because she wanted to be like Hope, whom her father loves so much, and ignoring her father’s orders to stay away from the arachnid actually ended up saving lives. Of course, Alaric points out that “Hope is not the goal” and the only reason he trusts her is because she’s been through things that he never wants to experience. But, Josie, feeling empowered herself, stands up to her father and demands that he start teaching them how to defend themselves because the threats won’t stop coming.

However, there are a few more interesting developments as the episode ends. First, Landon reads Hope for treating him like crap all day when all he wanted to do was fit in. Then, Alaric and Matt confront Kaleb about feeding on humans, and Alaric decides to handle matters internally, much to Matt’s annoyance (yes, there is some tension building between the two men!), and simply vervains Kaleb and tosses him into a cell. With that handled, Alaric calls Dorian and tells him it’s safe to come with the knife because it’s clear nothing is after him — except there is. A slimy monster breaks into Dorian’s secret cabin in the woods right before the show cuts to black.

Small Town Gossip:

  • Right before Kaleb gets locked up, he confronts MG about siding with the witches against him and drops a few truth bombs: First, MG is basically the Saltzman’s puppets. Second, they feed them animal blood there without even telling them.
  • In the end, Raf reveals to the pack how he killed his girlfriend, which earns him a place in the group. I was disappointed by this because I was hoping for him to start a rebellion.
  • “I’m wearing polyester.” “And you’re totally pulling it off.”
  • “So do you want to play good cop or bad good? I don’t think emo cop is a thing,” Hope, to Landon, as they investigate.
  • Your regular recapper Sam Highfill picked the perfect week to ask me to recap the show because this episode opened with something tailored made for me: MG having a nightmare about Grodd from The Flash. Yes, Grodd made a brief yet memorable appearance in the episode.

How to Get Away with Murder finale recap: Why do you look like someone died?

Here we go, it’s time for the winter finale of How to Get Away with Murder in an episode that will see both the long-awaited Coliver wedding and a bloody, bruising conclusion. Season 5 has been the show’s strongest season since its very first — a speeding train of revelations and an examination of the corrupt prison system all chugging towards tonight’s explosive finale.

We open back where we began with a figure bleeding in the snow. The dripping blood quickly shifts to Gabriel cutting himself while shaving — Laurel, Bonnie, and Frank look on from their surveillance camera. Laurel wants to tell Michaela the truth about him, but Bonnie says that could put everyone in danger. Frank needs to find out what Gabriel wants and everyone else needs to stay in the dark to keep them safe. Including the audience, apparently.

Oliver and Connor are feeling the love the night before their wedding. Oliver’s mom gives a heartfelt speech about how Oliver gives his whole heart to those he loves and how Connor does that in return. Connor’s dad, who came through and paid for the wedding, is there too – but he can’t make a speech without taking a dig at Connor’s bruised face. A moment only made worse when Connor’s mom pointedly pushes her ex-husband aside to say, “Here’s hoping you have a much happier marriage than we did.” See what you have to look forward to still single children of divorced parents?

Laurel returns late and gives Michaela crap for taking Gabriel as her plus-one. Meanwhile, we see the seeds of Asher’s parking lot rendezvous with Connor’s mom planted as he brings her champagne, and she bemoans the end of her hopes that Connor would retire with her to Boca. Oliver continues to avoid Connor’s dad, and Jefferson wants them all to talk it out — but Connor insists his dad not make Oliver’s special day all about him.

Back at Annalise’s new digs, she and Nate are digging through paperwork to take down the governor for Nate Senior’s murder. Nate wants Bonnie to get the name of Miller’s contact who ordered his dad’s transfer. She wants him to ask himself, but he resigned from his job at the DA’s office. Annalise wants them to keep fighting, but not before Bonnie lets it drop that the case and his father’s death has driven Annalise to drink again.

Michaela also won’t let this case rest, interrupting Oliver and Connor’s pre-wedding day bliss to make Oliver hack the warden’s phone records. He obliges and she goes to Nate with them. The warden got a call from an unlisted number and then called his chief correctional officer. Nate is infuriated by her interference, but he takes the phone records to a private investigator in a parking garage and asks her to look into them.

Annalise is refusing to come to the wedding, so Connor shows up on her doorstep to insist she attend. She complains she’s no good at weddings, even her wedding to Sam was a rush job at the courthouse. She was the other woman and Sam had already had his white wedding. But Connor won’t take no for an answer because if it weren’t for Annalise insisting Connor seduce Oliver and get him to hack records for her, they never would’ve met and fallen in love.

Bonnie is getting dressed for the wedding and Frank is going to use the time to search Gabriel’s apartment again. Miller arrives to leave with Bonnie, and she’s surprised he didn’t tell her Nate quit. The two get into an argument and Miller says he feels like he’s in a love triangle with Annalise — nailed it, bro. He wants to marry Bonnie, but not if she always puts Annalise ahead of him. He insists Annalise takes advantage of her and her “issues.” Which was not, in any way, the right thing to say.

Back at the church, Connor and Oliver are getting ready to walk down the aisle. Connor is sweating and freaking out but Michaela reassures him, telling him this marriage will make him a better person. Michaela and Asher share a moment when he fixes her zipper and calls her out on kissing Gabriel, saying he feels like he’s never good enough.

But there’s no time to dig into that statement because the music is playing and everyone is walking down the aisle. We see the walk from Connor’s point-of-view as ominous music plays. He is struggling as he takes in all the happy faces greeting him, including Annalise! He makes it to the altar and tells Oliver it’s going to be fun. Bonnie runs in late without Miller and tells Annalise he got called into work.

Connor and Oliver exchange vows. And they are perhaps the purest, most good-hearted, beautiful thing this show has ever done. Oliver waxes about his life-long dreams of a white wedding. “My dream wasn’t the wedding or the tux or Brian Adams, my dream was you,” he tells Connor. And in turn, Connor replies with a speech about Oliver making him want normalcy. “I want to love you until the day I die,” he pledges. Which, on this show, might not actually be all that long. Annalise can’t take all the happiness and love and escapes to the bathroom to drink from a flask, while Connor and Oliver exchange rings.

At the reception, Annalise is visibly drunk in her responses to Connor’s parents (though Mr. Walsh totally deserves her attitude). Laurel wants Frank to take out Gabriel tonight so they can use the wedding as an alibi, which sends Bonnie spiraling. Annalise isn’t doing so hot either, sitting alone in the church drinking. Gabriel walks in on her and won’t let her pass. He calls her out on her drinking and makes her drop her purse, revealing her flask. He seems sincere when he tells her his mom waited too long to get help and he doesn’t want Annalise to end up like her. But he’s not being honest, right? At least not based on what Frank finds in his apartment — a wad of cash, a hidden key, and a case that the key belongs to which contains Gabriel’s birth certificate.

Annalise and Nate dance, which tips him off to her drinking. Can’t a lady just have a good time at a wedding?! Michaela wants to know if he found out who called the warden, which comes as news to Bonnie. Nate tells them to keep their mouths shut while he takes a call from his PI who has tracked the unlisted call to the warden to a payphone. She’s sent him an email with more information.

Finally, we have caught up to the real time of the flash-forwards we’ve witnessed all season. Frank is there, showing Annalise the birth certificate and getting slapped. She storms out into the snow. We’re back outside where Christopher is crying and Bonnie is suffocating the unknown victim — who turns out to be DA Miller, a.k.a. the love of Bonnie’s life. OH. MY. GOD.

We flashback to the rest of their conversation in her apartment. Miller continued to rail on Annalise, insisting she is not a good person. Bonnie can’t help but replay conversations with Annalise where her mentor insisted Miller was playing Bonnie. He wants to protect her from Annalise, but Bonnie is putting pieces together remembering he had a friend at the governor’s office. She says he attacked the one person who matters most to her (sigh, Bonnie, you maybe have to let Annalise go at some point) and she doesn’t want him to go to the wedding with her.

Back to the wedding, Miller disobeyed Bonnie’s wishes and after looking longingly at an engagement ring in his car, he gets out to confront her. He pledges his love, but she turns on him, insisting he had Nate’s dad killed — that’s what all the pieces point to. He denies it, but she tells him to never touch her again. He returns to his car but decides to go after Bonnie again and that’s his fatal error — because there in the parking lot is Nate with the evidence from the PI, a photograph showing that Miller is the one who made the payphone call to the warden that day.

Bonnie sees a trail of blood in the snow and just keeps whispering “Oh God, no” over and over. She finds Miller’s body and Nate calls out to her from the trees. He tells her Miller called the warden and shows her the photo. Nate is still hysterical, rambling about Miller murdering his dad. It’s too much for Bonnie to bear, but she does what she feels she has to and smothers Miller to death.

Everything else is a red herring. Christopher was in the snow because Bonnie got saddled with him when they played Mrs. Hampton’s song; Oliver was missing because he was on the phone with his dad — though the search for him did lead to Connor discovering his mother in flagrante delicto with Asher. Oliver has been found, and Connor goes in to discover Oliver preparing to make a grand gesture, singing John Legend’s “All of Me” to Connor in place of a first dance.

Conrad Ricamora is an exceedingly talented Broadway performer, and it’s so fantastic to see the show give him this stand-out moment to sing. He has a stellar voice and lends the song a vulnerability and depth that makes the last moments of the finale utterly heartbreaking. Connor looks on, his eyes full of love for his husband, the wedding guests all oblivious to the horrors happening around them.

The song and its message of undying love hauntingly plays over Bonnie sobbing through delivering her death blow to Miller. Nate then tries to cover the blood in the snow and stashes Miller’s body in the trunk of his car — and discovers the engagement ring that was in Miller’s pocket. Bonnie returns inside to find Asher starring wistfully at Michaela during the love song. Bonnie insists nothing is wrong. Laurel is concerned about Gabriel’s whereabouts.

Annalise has left the wedding early, having to use a hide-a-key to get into her apartment because she can’t find her own. She’s on the floor of her apartment, crying and drunk, when she hears the floor creak. She couldn’t find her key because Gabriel took it when she dropped her purse. He stands menacingly in her hallway, trying to play it off, but she tells him the jig is up — she knows who he is. And finally, his identity is revealed. Flashing back to the wedding, Frank tells her Gabriel is Sam’s son. We see the birth certificate and Sam Keating is listed as the father, while Vivian Maddox, Sam’s first wife as it turns out, is the mother. She stares at Gabriel and his enigmatic face shifts to an unsettling close-up on a smiling Sam.

And there we have it, Miller is dead and Gabriel is Sam’s child possibly out for revenge against the “other woman” who broke up his family. What do you think? Is Miller truly a bad guy? Or did Nate and Bonnie take down the wrong person? Will Nate tell Bonnie about the engagement ring? What does Gabriel actually want? And is he at all tied to the mysterious adoption that is the governor’s leverage against Annalise? Sound off in the comments or hit me up @themaureenlee.
