Going for Gobi The long history of Chinese cooking in America has evolved toward the sweet and syrupy. By contrast, in India, where the fusion is known as "Indo-Chinese," the flavors that emerged over the last century from the Chinese community in eastern India have veered toward high-voltage spice and sour. Take my new favorite vegetarian dish, which is becoming more common in Philadelphia-area Indian restaurants: Gobi Manchurian. The cauliflower florets are crisped in a seasoned corn batter, then sauced in a mahogany slick that could be mistaken for General Tso's - until you take a bite.

The pictures look like Montgomery County's take on Reno 911: emergency operators clutching booze and sex toys while mugging for cameras at their computer terminals in the Eagleville dispatch center. Pictures of the racy Dec. 23 work party, reminiscent of the television police spoof, yesterday found their way from a MySpace posting into the hands of the Montgomery County commissioners, who fired a supervisor and denounced the judgment of all involved. "This behavior was unbelievably stupid," Commissioners Chairman James R. Matthews said, "and doing it in front of a camera multiplies the stupidity.

At the request of prison officials, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office is investigating whether a contract extension was properly awarded in December and whether any prison employees benefited from it.

At a shout, a dozen tiny bare feet fly upward toward black belt Lou Giamo in a martial-arts studio in Eagleville. "Right foot first. No, that's your left foot," Giamo tells 3- to 5-year-olds there to learn tae kwon do. "We have some left-and-right issues here," he privately concedes. But this summer, Giamo, 45, a master and instructor of tae kwon do - the art of fighting with foot and fist - swaps the local stage for the international. With three other trainers, he will fly to Mali to help that West African nation field a tae kwon do team sharp enough to qualify for the 2008 Olympics.

Students Against Violating the Earth, an organization run by Souderton Area High School 10th, 11th and 12th graders, will hold an open house Saturday, featuring an electric car and a house redesigned for environmental conservation. The car, a 1991 Volkswagon Jetta, has been modified so that it no longer requires fossil fuels to operate. The house gleans heat from the use of passive-solar technology - such as heat-storing tiles and masonry and south-facing windows - and uses recycled materials.

The Montgomery County commissioners dedicated last night a new 250-bed wing at the county prison, the long-promised answer to overcrowding at the Eagleville facility. The addition will increase the prison's capacity to about 1,400, with room for still more growth. "The expansion of a prison is not a happy event," said Commissioner James W. Maza after touring the facility. He said county money was needed for education and children's programs but "public safety is the first order of government.
