A feast for the eyes and the taste buds, this entrée features sliced heirloom tomatoes topped with fresh basil leaves, mozzarella cheese, avocado and capers; a balsamic vinaigrette drizzled over the dish adds a little kick. $9. Burgundy Grill & Wine Bar, 830 Kline St.

TRUE OR FALSE?
Every minute counts for stroke patients and the most effective treatments are only available if the stroke is recognized and diagnosed within the first three hours of the first symptoms.

True. If you think someone may be having a stroke, act F.A.S.T. and do this simple test: FACE: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? ARMS: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he/she repeat the sentence correctly? TIME: If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important. Call 911 or get to the hospital fast. Brain cells are dying.
