ASK FLYING • In August 1958, the President signed the Federal Aviation Act, which transferred the Civil Aeronautics Authority’s functions to a new and independent Federal Aviation Agency. The FAA was charged with regulating air commerce to promote its development and safety and with promoting, encouraging, and developing civil aeronautics. How, when, and why did these congressionally-mandated functions change?

COUNTY FAIR BURGER • One of Indiana’s best kept secrets is one of the simplest—the pork burger. Frankly I’m not sure why subbing out beef patties for pork hasn’t caught more national attention, but one bite of this delicious, juicy burger will convince any burger purist. The Rihm family makes their patties in house, combining ground pork and their famous jowl bacon to produce a meaty, moist, and smoky base to this classic. I pressed both Joseph and Jerry Rihm as to why it’s earned the 'county fair' moniker, and both tell me that’s because you eat them at the county fair. I can’t argue with that! You can dress up this burger as you wish, and it’s most often served with either mustard or barbecue sauce—no mayo or ketchup, please.
