Howie's Healthy Eating is on the A2 road at the turnoff to YS Falls, west of Treasure Beach on Jamaica's Southwest coast. Truckers and tourists alike make sure to stop in at this institution for all manner of Jamaican food cooked in large pots over pimento wood fires -- 24 hours a day. Offerings include five soups, a few stews, fried chicken and fish, jerk chicken, and various porridges -- like peanut porridge, a regional treat that Sam, Howie's long-time head chef, made better than anyone else. We ate here on our way to the Falls, and a few hours later had another meal here on our way home.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
