DR. SEUSS TURNS 111 ON MARCH 2 

Here, there, or anywhere — celebrate Theodor Seuss Giesel’s birthday with foods from some of his most beloved children’s books. 

Whether it’s green eggs and ham for breakfast or roast beast for a special birthday dinner, literary classics come to life for kids of all ages. 

Find recipes for all three dishes on Flavor 574.

PANDA EXPRESS COMING TO ELKHART 

Come late fall, the days of driving to Warsaw or Mishawaka for a Panda Express fix will be over. 

The chain announced it will move into Elkhart’s Shoppes on Six — southwest of C.R. 6 and Cassopolis Street on the north side of Elkhart — and expects to open in November. 

This will be the 17th location in Indiana, among the more than 1,700 locations throughout United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada, Mexico and Korea.

The cafe will also serve biscuits, pastries, toast, oatmeal and more and has plans to eventually branch out to the lunchtime crowd.
