The year 1997 can be summarized in one word: Sandpoint. Several other schools and athletes shined, but none brighter than Sandpoint. From most recent to last winter, here's a look at the year's highlights:
1. With its stunning special effects wrapped around an epic love story, "Titanic" is one of the seasons biggest blockbusters. 2. "Boogie Nights" is a morality tale involving a group of characters working in the porn-film industry during the 1970s-'80s.
Amid all the fat-free frozen dinners and funny-flavored fruit drinks, once in a while we serve The Spokesman-Review's reader food panel some pretty decent stuff. And if you look at it over a long enough period - say, the past year - you could actually put together a fairly respectable menu. That's exactly what we've done, coming up with the food panel's "Greatest Hits of 1997" - the top-scoring snack, side dish, main dish, drink and dessert items sampled during the year.

Outback Steakhouse is the first restaurant in Spokane with an Australian attitude. The menu is full of "clever" descriptions like "Our steaks are fair dinkum ...

Munchies are called aussie-tizers and, of course, there's a section dedicated to meats "grilled on the barbie."
