TOP STORIES:

HEART MOUNTAIN COURSE

BILLINGS, Mont. _ Heart Mountain looms above the Cody, Wyoming-area landscape, visible from miles around. Its namesake World War II-era Japanese internment camp is less apparent. That’s part of why Montana State University-Billings is offering a course dedicated to the Heart Mountain site, an internment camp that held more than 14,000 Japanese-Americans just outside Cody during the war.

THE MEANING OF MEAT

LINCOLN, Neb. _ More than four months after Missouri became the first U.S. state to regulate the term “meat” on product labels, Nebraska’s powerful farm groups are pushing for similar protection from veggie burgers, tofu dogs and other items that look and taste like real meat. Nebraska lawmakers will consider a bill this year to prevent companies that package and sell food from advertising plant-based, insect-based and lab-grown products as meat. Similar measures are pending in Tennessee, Virginia and Wyoming. By Grant Schulte. SENT: 660 words. AP Photos.
