Eh? has never been particularly fond of fish on fine fare, but maybe that’s just personal taste. One thing is for sure, Eh? has never had a tuna-topped pizza.
Esko’s own Eskomo Pizza Pies is now in its sixth year of offering the special topping on Fridays during lent. The base is made with an alfredo sauce, rather than classic tomato, and topped with albacore tuna and some other trade secret recipes.
For dine-in orders, Eskomo Pizza Pies has pledged to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the meal to Queen of Peace School.
The Superior Police Department is dispatching some officers to City’s 58th Street Diner, 5802 Tower Ave. in Superior, to have a cuppa and converse with residents.
All community members are invited to attend “Coffee with a Cop” at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The purpose of the event is to allow the community and police to meet in a neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and, of course, drink coffee.
Since the majority of contact residents have with police comes during emergency or emotional situations, those moments aren’t effective for building relationships with the community it serves, the department said in a statement. “Coffee with a Cop” breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.
The department is asking people to bring any questions or concerns they may have.

If the prom is in your future, or your past, now is the time to act.
The second annual Prom Shopping Spectacular is open and will run through Saturday at 2826 Piedmont Ave. in Piedmont Plaza Shopping Center.
The shopping event is for both past and future prom-goers, which offers the opportunity for prom dresses that already have been worn once to be sold to people who are looking for a new-to-you dress.
Tracy Lundeen of Lundeen Productions, who is the driving force behind the event, said nearly 400 dresses already have been catalogued.
That’s right, catalogued. Because Lundeen, who has a daughter, knows that girls don’t want to buy a dress that was seen at their prom the previous year. So Lundeen and his staff take down the history of the dresses as they come in.
Lundeen said that after all the business is done, and everyone has been paid, about 10 percent of the revenue made from the event goes toward various local charities: Life House, Boys and Girls Club and Northwood Children’s Services. Whatever dresses did not sell, the girls can either pick them back up or allow them to be donated.
Last year, Lundeen said, about 60 dresses were donated, which allowed many girls unable to afford their own dress, to make a splash at prom.

Lifesaving, knot tying, nature and swimming all sound like things Eh? would expect a Boy Scout to gain a merit badge in.
But now, the Boy Scouts of America have released one of its newest merit badges: Mining in Society.
The badge was released Feb. 26 at the annual meeting of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration Inc., which was instrumental in development of the badge, according to a statement by the Boy Scouts of America.
Some of the requirements — among the long list — include explaining the role of mining, charting different mining enterprises, discussing hazards of mining and taking a tour of an active mine.
