What do food writers like me do when they aren't actually eating? Try to drop the weight we gain as a side effect of our work. In the past, I had always confined these efforts to fat farms in Cheapside, N.J., but I'd always been dying to go to Canyon Ranch, the upscale spa in Tucson, Ariz. Thanks to the nest egg I'd saved because I never buy overpriced T-shirts with anyone else's initials on them and enough frequent flyer miles to get me cross-country for free, I spent a week at Canyon Ranch, even though spending a few hundred bucks a day to eat next to nothing struck even an extravagant wastrel like me as slightly insane.

Paul Ferguson stood on a spongy mound of leaves and gestured at three stone foundations cloaked in moss and concealed by a tangle of winter-dried weeds. The foundations on Bath Road near Route 13 are believed by many historians to be the remains of the Bath Springs health spa built by Dr. John Abraham DeNormandie in 1760, said Ferguson, who gives tours of Bristol Borough and describes himself as an amateur historian. The springs were known to the settlers as early as 1700 and were used before that by the Leni-Lenape Indians, who considered them to possess important medicinal powers.

The U.S. government wants Emanuel Gambino, a reputed associate of the New York-based Gambino crime family, to pay $50,655 in taxes from as far back as 1981, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Camden yesterday. The lawsuit names both Gambino, of the first block of Buxley Court in Sicklerville, and his wife, Sharon N. Gambino, of the 5300 block of Frosthoffer Avenue in Pennsauken. Phone numbers for both Gambinos were unlisted, and they could not be reached. Together, the Gambinos owe the IRS $17,237 with interest and penalties, the lawsuit says.

This is the day I'm to be initiated into the rites of spa-ing, and I'm a little apprehensive as I doff my clothes and don the spa's long, fluffy robe and slippers. Modesty is protected most of the time, but, I'm told, I can wear a bathing suit if I want. Almost nobody does. I had asked Richel D'Ambra, owner of the spa section at Pierre & Carlo, to come up with a half-day plan for about $150, what the average person might be expected to spend on a tryout package. What we ended up with breaks the budget a little: $160, plus tips.

MILWAUKEE - A Wisconsin man terrorized his wife for years, threatening to throw acid on her face, dousing her car with tomato juice, and slashing her vehicle's, tires before finally going to the spa where she worked, opening fire, and killing her and two others. The shooting spree stunned the middle- to upper-class Milwaukee suburb where it occurred Sunday, but court records show the conflict between Radcliffe Haughton and his wife had been escalating for years. The 45-year-old former car salesman ultimately shot seven women at the Brookfield spa before turning the gun on himself, taking his own life.

George Washington and Steve McQueen have Historic Yellow Springs in common. Washington selected it as the site for his military hospital during the Revolutionary War. McQueen's early movie, the '50s fright-night feature, The Blob, was filmed on the village streets. To say that the picturesque 145-acre village, known to its friends as HYS, has had a diverse history is an understatement. Today, the village, with 15 preserved buildings and fields and springs, is a historic site run by a nonprofit organization to preserve open space and interpret the area's history.

Gaping holes dotted the wood-shingled roof, chunks fell from the stucco walls, and a giant sycamore root threatened to heave up an entire wall. For decades, the Jenny Lind Springhouse at Historic Yellow Springs was merely a ghost of past graciousness, overgrown with tangled weeds. Now, with its recently completed restoration, it is one more step in the ambitious agenda intended to bring Historic Yellow Springs to its former grandeur as a Victorian health spa. The Sycamore Sulphur Springhouse, built in 1840, was renamed for Swedish soprano Jenny Lind when she reportedly bathed in its waters at a spa rest during her 1850-52 American tour.

Jeffry Sproehnle was patient. He had learned in 18 years of police work that criminals almost always stumble. And when The Pervert tripped up, the Middletown Township police detective planned to be right there. The Pervert. That's what his victims at LivingWell Lady spa in Langhorne in Bucks County called the man who had cursed them from pay telephones, left crude and grammatically incorrect notes on their cars, splattered their windshields with semen and scratched "slut" on their vehicle doors.
