by Ashley Dobson Contributing writer It’s no secret the German landscape is covered in castles, but did you know, many of those unique castles are available to rent and stay in for a weekend trip or a weeklong vacation. Airbnb, a website where people can find, list and rent all types of lodging, features more than 50 castles for rent all over Germany. Rentals start at around €50 per night for a single room. Whether you are looking for a room in a Victorian-style castle, to rent out an entire castle at the edge of the Franconian Alps or to spend a weekend sharing a castle with a noble family, there’s an option for you. While it is hard to narrow them down, here are my top five based on unique experience offerings and interesting histories. When I picture a true fairytale castle in my mind, it always has a moat. If you feel the same way, Schloss Unsleben, located on the edge of the Bavarian mountain region Rhoen, is for you. At this low-key castle, you can rent a room inside the castle or have the entire Falkennest tower, the castle cottage, or the garden house to yourself. The castle itself is inhabited by the count and countess. According to reviews on Airbnb, they make for lovely hosts and can teach you a bit about what it means to be nobility in Germany.

owned and has been turned into a guesthouse. The current owners live in the castle itself, while the former gatehouse, tower house and Schweizer House are all available for rent. The castle is located in a beautiful area to explore and is also situated perfectly for day trips to Munich and Nuremberg.

Located on the Romantic Road in Bavaria, Schloss Moehren’s history dates back to the 12th century. The castle was originally built as a hunting lodge. For the majority of the castle’s life it belonged to the Pappenheim family, a prominent German noble family. The symbol of the Pappenheims can still be found on some of the property’s windows and the gate. Now Schloss Moehren is privately

The castle lies at the heart of the tiny village of Groebitz. While it doesn’t look like the castles you picture in fairytales or Disney movies, this castle has a unique history. The most identifiable trait is the circular tower from 1512. The rest of the existing property was built in 1721. Since it was built, 13 noble families have lived within its walls. After World War II, the castle was nationalized, and it was used for a multitude of different purposes. It has held refugees and has served as a town hall,

This castle is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. You can even sign up for a private candlelight dinner when you rent your room.

Schloss Heinrichshorst is a Victorian dream in the forest near Magdeburg. It was built in 1899 by famed architect Jacques Gros. It was intended as a summer residence and hunting mansion for a man named Heinrich, who lost the property after putting it up as collateral during a card game. From 1949 to 1990, Schloss Heinrichshorst was used as a holiday camp for young children. After this time, the castle fell into a state of disrepair. The current owners, Dirk and Viona Ielegems, moved to the castle from Belgium “to bring back the glory of former times.”

As the most luxurious option of them all, this medieval castle near Bayreuth will truly let you know what it is like to be king. There are five terraces in this 900-year-old castle. Renting it out gets you the entrance hall, kitchen, knights’ hall, a guest room and bathroom, the master bedroom and bathroom, Hall of Mirrors and the ladies’ parlor. You can also add on the cost of a private chef for your stay if you wish. The castle is one of the oldest in the region. It changed hands many times throughout the centuries before being saved by King Ludwig, according to the Airbnb posting. The current owner bought the castle and renovated the inside in 2013.

Explore Germany’s National Parks Germany has a great deal of fascinating cities to explore, but you are missing out on some of the country’s most aweinspiring sights if you don’t venture out into the wild. There are 16 national parks in Germany, each one with its own distinctive identity and each one uniquely beautiful. Whether hiking trails, discovering a new lake or following the path of a historical figure, Germany’s national parks offer a fun place to spend your summer weekends. All 16 parks are worth checking out during your time in Germany, but here’s our list of the five you should make a priority during summer 2016. Eifel National Park Eifel National Park is the perfect choice for history buffs. The park encompasses a former World War II training ground. Some parts of the park are still not open to the public because of the Glasmine 43 mines that still exist near the dam of the Urft Reservoir. Even if you are feeling super adventurous, the areas of the park that were sown with glass

mines are fenced off and entering them is strictly forbidden. About 150 miles of paths are open to visitors of Eifel National Park. On these paths, you can see the park’s native animal and plant species. It is home to more 7,100 of them. The park also offers frequent, free guided tours with a trained ranger. Information about these tours, as well as other events, are available at the Eifel National Park Forestry Office. Eifel National Park makes for a perfect day trip. It is about a 2 1/2-hour drive from Kaiserslautern. Black Forest National Park The towns in the Black Forest area may be best known for cuckoo clocks and cake, but Black Forest National Park is full of its own treasures. The park stretches between BadenBaden and Freudenstadt and provides views over the Rhine Valley and France. There are three suggested hiking paths inside the park: the Lynx path, the wilderness path and the Lotharpfad. The Lynx path allows you to see the forest from the perspective of the mighty cat. The

Berchtesgaden National Park

wilderness path shows off the power of nature, and the Lotharpfad takes you through the path of the 1999 storm “Lothar.” This national park is also home to gorgeous waterfalls. You can take either a day trip or spend a weekend camping inside the park in a permitted area. The Black Forest National Park is about two hours and 45 minutes by car from Kaiserslautern. Kellerwald-Edersee National Park Kellerwald-Edersee National Park is for true nature lovers. It is a Luzulo-beech forest. While there is small-animal life in this park, the trees are the highlight. There is even a walkway built up at the

top of the trees, called the Baumkronenweg am Edersee, that allows you to experience the park from all angles. Kellerwald-Edersee National Park is about a three-hour drive from Kaiserslautern.

home to two of Germany’s five glaciers. It is the perfect choice for hikers or photographers looking to capture some of the best views in the country. Berchtesgaden National Park is about a six-hour drive from Kaiserslautern.

Berchtesgaden National Park Berchtesgaden National Park is the only alpine national park in Germany, and the views are unbelievably stunning. It is located in the southeast of Bavaria on the border with Austria and is dotted with gorgeous lakes and towering mountains. In the center of the park is the famous Lake Koenigssee, which features St. Bartholomew’s Church, a Roman Catholic pilgrimage church, at its shore. Many visitors to the park are completing the pilgrimage of St. Bartholomew. Berchtesgaden is also

Jasmund National Park Jasmund National Park is a nature reserve near the Baltic Sea. It is famous for containing the largest chalk cliffs in Germany, known as the “Koenigsstuhl,” meaning “king’s chair” in German. It is the smallest national park in Germany but one of the most unique. It is home to many rare plants and animals. Bird watchers come from all over to try to spot some of the rare birds nesting in the area. Jasmund is a nine-hour drive from Kaiserslautern, but the views and the experience are worth it.

10 tips for the best school year yet by Megan Finley Contributing writer School is out, and the days are long and warm. Summer vacation is what kids day dream about all year round. It is like a two-month Christmas day! But before we know it, it will once again be time to start waking up early, packing lunches and hitting the books. Here are some tips to ensure your child has the best possible start for a successful school year.


Commit to healthy habits By ensuring children have healthy diets, plenty of sleep, a nutritional breakfast and daily exercise, parents make a strong step in the right direction for a successful school year. Children have the best chance of doing well at school when their bodies and minds are cared for properly.


Routine, routine, routine Most people thrive on structure and routine. Kids are no different. By establishing and committing to a routine, children know what is expected of them, stay organized and are better prepared for the school day. Some days may differ a bit from others in terms of activities and obligations, but keeping to the same overall structure helps both children and parents.


Create an organizational space This space should be designated for shoes, coats, lunch boxes, projects, notes, homework, backpacks and anything else that is going to and from school. This area is the staging zone for every school day. Whatever is needed for school should be neatly organized in this space, all ready to go. This eliminates any last-minute morning panics.


Create a work area Have an area where homework and other school work is completed. This can be a bedroom desk or the dining room table. Make it part of the routine to sit at this place after school each day to review homework, notes and anything else that may need attention.


Limit television, video games and computer time By limiting these activities, students will be less distracted during the school week and more apt to complete homework, attend after-school activities, read or get outside to play. If electronics are an option, try to keep them educational.

Encourage reading Try to have your child read 20 minutes every day. If your child cannot read or has had a particularly hard day, then read to them yourself. Make reading a part of the daily routine.


Communicate Ask your child if they like their classmates, teacher or school. Talk about the good and the bad. Share your previous experiences and explore ways to solve any problems that may present themselves. Share in your child’s excitements as well as their disappointments.


Get involved Show your child you have an interest in their success. Communicate on a regular basis with teachers and discuss any concerns that may arise. Volunteer for special class activities or to help out in the classroom.


Keep your home a place of peace All of us, especially kids, need a place of peace to retreat to after a day of work. Children are not only facing academic pressures but also all kinds of social pressures. Children need a place to hang their hat and feel safe and comfortable, a place where they can be their true self. Children need a place where they can receive total acceptance, support and safety and know they are loved. Respond appropriately to problems that arise and try not to overreact. Problems are meant for solving.


Expect success The best way to ensure a successful school year is to expect success. Get enthusiastic and stay motivated together. Set goals and work to achieve them. Make expectations clear, and your student will rise to the occasion.

Easy summer recipes by Katie F. Boltuch Contributing writer One of the last things anyone wants to do in the summer is cook big, heavy and complicated meals. It’s hot, it’s humid, and what you really want is to relax. If you’re tired of the usual barbecue fare and need some lighter menu ideas, look no further.

SALAD Grilled Watermelon Salad

Photo by Marina Nabatova/Shutterstock.com

APPETIZER Pineapple-Ginger-Habanero Salsa This refreshing salsa is a nice variation of the traditional version, with a little extra kick! Start to finish: 10 minutes Servings: 8 • 2 pineapples • 4 teaspoons ginger, grated • 4 green onions, thinly sliced • Juice of 2 limes • 2 small red onions, finely diced • 1/2 to 1 habanero chili, minced (depending on what kind of heat you want) • Splash canola oil • Kosher salt • Black pepper, freshly ground • Corn tortilla or plantain chips, for serving Slice the pineapples and grill or roast until just tender. Dice the cooked pineapple. Toss the pineapple, ginger, green onions, lime juice, red onions, chili and oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with tortilla or plantain chips. (Recipe from www.FoodNetwork.com)

Grilled Watermelon? In a salad? It’s different, but it is worth it. Guaranteed to be one of the most refreshing salads you’ll have this summer. Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 4 • 1/2 seedless watermelon • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar • Extra-virgin olive oil • Kosher salt • 2 cups baby arugula, washed and dried • 1 cup goat cheese, crumbled • Black pepper, finely cracked Stand the watermelon half cut side down on a cutting board and slice away the rind, leaving a solid block of melon. Turn the block on its side and cut it into 8 squares, roughly 3 by 3 inches and 1-inch thick. Pour the vinegar into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced to a thick syrup consistency. Set aside. Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle just enough olive oil over watermelon slices to thinly coat and place on hot grill pan. Grill each side for about 2 minutes until grill marks appear. Transfer to a plate and season with salt. To assemble the individual servings of salad, put about 1/4 cup of baby arugula on a small plate, followed by a grilled slice of watermelon in the center and top with a tablespoon of crumbled cheese and another 1/4 cup arugula. Add another watermelon slice and another tablespoon of cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Finish each salad with a very light drizzle of olive oil and balsamic syrup. Dust with black pepper and serve immediately. (Recipe from www.FoodNetwork.com)

Quinoa, pronounced keen-wah, is a high-protein seed that has a fluffy, slightly crunchy texture. You can make this salad a day ahead of time, just be sure to add the avocado at the last minute to avoid discoloring. Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided in half • 1/2 cup yellow onion from 1 small onion, chopped • 1 cup pre-washed quinoa • 1 2/3 cups vegetable broth, low sodium • 1 teaspoon salt, divided in half • 1 cup tomatoes from 2 medium tomatoes, chopped • 1 1/4 cup fresh cut corn from 2 cobs, cooked • 2 scallions, white and green parts, finely sliced • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped • 2 tablespoons lime juice from 1 large lime • 1 avocado, cut into bite-sized chunks Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add quinoa to onions and continue cooking, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes. Add vegetable broth and stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt. Turn heat up to high and bring to a boil. Cover pan tightly with lid, turn heat down to low and simmer for 17 to 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is cooked. Transfer cooked quinoa to mixing bowl and chill in refrigerator. When quinoa is cool, add remaining tablespoon of olive oil, tomatoes, corn, scallions, jalapeno, cilantro, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Right before serving, scatter avocado chunks over top. (Recipe from www.SeriousEats.com)

MAIN COURSE Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwiches Even if you’re a skeptic of vegetable sandwiches, you’ll love the meatiness of the portobello and the tang from the feta. For a vegan-friendly option, replace feta with cashew cheese and regular mayonnaise with vegenaise. Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 • 1/4 cup mayonnaise • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice • 2 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise • 2 portobello mushrooms, sliced 1/4inch thick • 1 eggplant, sliced 1/4-inch thick • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt • 3/4 of a 1-pound ciabatta loaf, split horizontally • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup) • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced • 2 cups baby arugula Heat a grill to high, about 450 F to 550 F. Mix mayonnaise, garlic and lemon juice together. Set aside. Brush zucchini, mushrooms and eggplant with oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill, turning once, until softened and grill marks appear, about 3 minutes. Grill bread cut side down just until grill marks start to appear, 2 minutes. Cut each loaf half into 4 pieces. Spread bottoms with mayo and smear tops with cheese. Make sandwiches with vegetables, tomatoes and arugula. (Recipe from June 2012 issue of Sunset)

Swimming and sun available in and around the KMC

Photo by Heather Lucia Snow/Shutterstock.com

by Thomas Warner Contributing writer The weather will be hot for an undetermined amount of time, so here are a handful of ways to beat the heat while spending quality time with family and friends:


This medium-sized lake close to Vogelweh has always been one of the most appreciated places in the KMC. It is host to numerous events throughout the calendar year, regardless of the temperature or weather, and holds a special place in the hearts of many Germans raised in this area. Summers at Gelterswog include rowing and paddling on the warm waters, swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking, biking and other forms of relaxation. Food and drinks are available at the small cafe by the lake, and the modern and comfortable Seehotel is available to book rooms for people who wish to avoid the numerous campsites on the property.


This beach area in Waldfischbach-Burgalben is augmented by a large campground that is frequented yearly by many travelers, and it is only a half hour from the KMC. Tents are already up, and the sunbathers arrive early in the day to enjoy the elongated daylight hours in Germany. The sandy beach lining the lake will be filled for weeks at the time, and children can drift away from parents to enjoy the safe playground areas that are structured near the water. A trip around the lake in a paddleboat is an excellent way for family members to spend time together, and there are a multitude of options for hiking, swimming and eating. It’s also a great place to bring bicycles and do some off-road pedaling.


Bostalsee is the largest lake in the German state of Saarland and is an hour or so from the KMC. It is accessible from the Nohfelden exit and easy to navigate due to heavy signage and other road markings.

The lake has multiple campgrounds around it that alternately feature swimming, boarding, canoeing and simple chances for catching a suntan on its clean shores. As part of the Saar Hunsrueck nature preserve, Bostalee is near Sankt Wendel and features a good portion of protected areas. Nonetheless, plenty of hiking and biking can be accomplished as people seek to let go of the day-to-day stress of work and family drama to relax. One of the unique aspects of this lake is the chance to scuba dive. People bring their own equipment and can go to a small pocket of the water that features a sunken boat plus lots of the freshwater fish and plants indigenous to this part of the country. Beer gardens, cafes, restaurants and shopping opportunities dot the lake’s shores.


Lake Constance, or “Bodensee” in German, is a large, long and slender lake that takes less than four hours to get to from the KMC. It is popular with Germans as well as international travelers, and to immerse yourself in the atmosphere that surrounds this popular recreation site is worth the long dive. Lake Constance is situated between Germany, Austria and Switzerland. One of the world’s smallest nations, Liechtenstein, is close enough to warrant a side trip. It is higher up in the Alps but less than 100 kilometers from the lake. Swimming, canoeing, windsurfing and paddle boating are all available at beach sites around the lake. Several public swimming pools and hotel pools add to the possibilities for families who have kids that insist on swimming. The towns around Lake Constance, including Birnau, Fredrichshafen, Romanshorn, Konstanz and Meersburg, have websites explaining various attractions, and there are many restaurants, lodging areas, and cafes in its vicinity. The area traces its history back to pre-Roman times and has many architectural spectacles from more modern times, such as baroque churches, refurbished palaces and brilliantly landscaped grounds. Chances to taste and buy wine along with lots of tourist shops make moving from town to town a pleasure around Lake Constance.

Relax this summer with a book you won’t be able to put down by Ashley Dobson Contributing writer Still searching for that perfect page turner to dive into this summer? Whether you are planning on being a beach bum, sitting poolside or relaxing on a staycation, we have a range of options to help make your next vacation even better. So before you finalize your packing list, take a look at our top-five summer reads for this year.

“The Bette Davis Club” by Jane Lotter — Lake Union Publishing You’ll fall in love instantly with the hilarious Margo, the heavy-drinking, old-Hollywoodobsessed, 50-year-old narrator of “The Bette Davis Club.” The past few decades have been rough for Margo, so when her half-sister offers her fifty grand to chase down a family heirloom and her runaway bride of a niece, she jumps at the chance. In what has to be the most unique road trip of all time, she rides with the bride’s jilted fiance in a borrowed 1955 red MG and makes more than a few discoveries about her family and herself. Couple this brilliant story with the book’s own unique tale to publication — the author selfpublished it to fulfill a lifelong dream but died before seeing a publishing house buy the rights to it — and you are in for one amazing ride.

“The Perfect Son” by Barbara Claypole White — Lake Union Publishing Ella Fitzwilliam and her husband, Felix, have perfectly split their family duties. Ella is in charge of the home and their teenage son, Harry, who struggles with Tourette’s Syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and anxiety. Felix brings home the bacon. But when Ella is hospitalized after a life-threatening heart attack, the family dynamics must shift. Told from the perspectives of all three family members, “The Perfect Son” is a heart-warming story about acceptance and love. It elegantly negotiates tough issues as it paints a picture of a not-so-perfect family. You’ll fall deeper and deeper in love with these flawed characters with each passing page.

“The Unexpected Everything” by Morgan Matson — Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers While not everything about this young adult novel is unexpected, I was surprised at just how quickly I got sucked into the world of Andie Walker and her friends. When Andie’s politician father finds himself at the center of a scandal, her entire world changes. But she comes to find out that not having her entire life go to plan might have been what she needed all along. The characters in “The Unexpected Everything” are lovable and engaging. Plus, this easy read has dogs, a first love and a political scandal. What more could you need?

“The Restaurant Critic’s Wife” by Elizabeth LaBan — Lake Union Publishing Lila Soto once had it all — a successful career, doting husband and great kids. But now, she has been uprooted to a new city for her husband’s dream job as a restaurant critic, a role he might be taking just a little bit too seriously. Her husband’s quest for anonymity leads to a lot of hilarious stories and a lot of soul searching for Lila. “The Restaurant Critic’s Wife” will delight you at every turn. The many facets of Lila’s life offer something relatable for everyone and make you feel like you are taking her journey along with her. Like a delicious four-course meal, this is one book you simply must devour this summer. “The Woman Who Upped and Left” by Fiona Gibson — Avon Between being a mother and working two dead-end jobs, Audrey Pepper never gets to put herself first. But after her 18-year-old son asks for a list of gifts for himself on her birthday instead of getting her a gift or acknowledging her day, she has absolutely had enough. Audrey knows it is time for a change. Though the change isn’t exactly what the title would suggest, “The Woman Who Upped and Left” will have you smiling from beginning to end, and you’ll definitely catch yourself laughing out loud more than a time or two.

Grilled Veal Cutlets & Cherry Crepes

Grilled Veal Cutlets

Cherry Crepes

Allow cutlets to sit in marinade for 24 hours. Heat the grill to medium heat. Place aluminum foil on grill, poking a few holes in foil. Spread a small amount of olive oil on foil to prevent cutlets from sticking. Put cutlets on for 3 minutes. You can spread more marinade on before turning if you desire. Turn meat to the other side for 3 minutes. Marinade again and turn meat again. Reduce to minimum heat. Turn a final time for 3 more minutes. Serve with a summer salad for a light meal!

Pour sugar over cherries and let sit for 1 hour. In a small pot heat cherries and cherry juice, less ¼ cup of cherry juice (the remaining juice will be put in the actual crepe batter). Remove some of the liquid while it is still cold and add the starch to it. As the mixture simmers, pour the starch liquid back into the pot. Stir constantly to prevent lumping of starch. Let it simmer for 6-8 minutes. Set it aside as you prepare the crepe batter. Mix flour, milk, sugar, cherry juice and cinnamon, making a thin batter. Add eggs, whisking them into the batter gently. In a small pan, heat margarine. Pour batter in so it is 1/8 inch high in pan on medium heat. Turn after 1.5-2 minutes, and cook other side of crepe. Remove after another 1.5 minutes. Place in a 50 degree Celsius oven to keep warm. Cook remaining crepes. Add ¼ of the cherry sauce to each crepe. Fold in thirds. Add Vanilla Ice Cream and your desired whipped cream for a lovely cherry dessert!

Ingredients for 4 people 4 normal size veal cutlets Aluminum foil Marinade: 4 tablespoons sour cream 4 tablespoons milk 1 teaspoon chopped parsley 1 teaspoon chopped basil 1 teaspoon chives 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground white pepper 1/2 teaspoon sugar Mix all ingredients.

For 4 people 2 cups cherries, pitted 2 ¼ cups cherry juice 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon potato starch 1 ½ cup flour 1 -1 ¼ cup milk ½ teaspoon sugar ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 2 large eggs 2 tablespoons margarine 4 scoops of vanilla Ice cream Whipped cream to taste

Mom... I’m Bored! Fun at-home activities to keep your kids busy “Summer - that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swim strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.” — Darell Hammond Summer is here, which means the kids are out of school for over two months. Every day cannot include an organized activity or costly outing. Here are three home activities that will keep the kids busy on those quiet summer days at home.

Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

• Disposable cups • Water • Tempera paint, any colors • Plaster of Paris, dry powder • Silicon molds For each color, you will need a separate cup. Fill each cup with 3/4 cup water. Add 1/4 cup of paint. Add 1 cup Plaster of Paris. Mix well. Pour the mixture into molds, and clean the edges with a paper towel.

Allow the mixture to dry for 24 hours. Carefully remove the mostly dried mixture from the molds. They will still be soft, so be gentle. Let them finish drying outside the molds for an additional 24 hours. Send the kids outside to make art with their new chalk. (Craft from www.WonderfulDIY. com)

Homemade Bubbles

• 6 cups water • Large container • 1 cup dish soap • 1 tablespoon glycerin or 1/4 cup of corn syrup • Bubble wand or straw Measure water into large container. Pour dish soap into the water, and slowly stir until the soap is mixed in. Try not to let foam or bubbles form while you stir. Add glycerin or corn syrup to the mixture. Stir the solution until it is mixed together. You can use the solution right away, but to make even better bubbles, put the lid on the container and let your super bubble solution sit for 24 hours. If using Ultra brand dish soap,

double the amount of glycerin or corn syrup. Dip the bubble wand or straw into the mixture, slowly it pull out, wait a few seconds, then blow. Your own homemade bubbles! (Craft from www. HomeTrainingTools.com)

Homemade Garden Wind Chime

• Small terracotta pot • Acrylic paint, any colors • Assorted beads • Waterproof string • 2 washers Paint your pot and let it dry. String your beads on however many strands of waterproof string you desire. Use long strands of varying lengths to add dimension to the wind chime. Make sure there is a knot at the bottom and top of each string. Leave some extra cord at the top. Once the pot is dry, tie your bead strings securely to your first washer, leaving a few inches free at the top. Poke the strings through the top of the garden pot and tie them securely around the second washer. Tie all the strings into a knot at the ends to form a loop to hang the wind chimes. (Craft from www.

The Bugs

Summer is a great time for the outdoors, grilling, picnics and relaxing. But just because we want to have fun doesn’t mean we can’t stay safe. Here are some tips to help make your summer the best, and healthiest, one yet.

Photo by Phovoir / Shutterstock.com

The Sun

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy, but sunburn on my shoulders makes me cry. We tend to wear less clothing in the warmer months, which leaves our skin exposed. Kids and adults are at a greater risk for sunburns during the summer months. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 58 percent of adults practice proper sun safety procedures. Put aside your excuses and put on the sunscreen, preferably one with a sun protection factor of at least 15 and both ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B protection. Put it on at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun and apply generously. Be sure to take these additional precautions: ● Seek shade, especially during the midday hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest and do the most damage. ● Cover up with clothing to protect exposed skin. A long-sleeved shirt and long pants with a tight weave are best. ● Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade the face, head, ears and neck.

July 8, 2016

● Grab shades that wrap around and block as close to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays as possible. ● Reapply sunscreen throughout the day.

The Heat

Heat-related illnesses claim the lives of hundreds of people each year. These tips will help you prepare for working or playing outside during the hot summer months. ● Stay inside during the hottest hours of the day, which are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ● Drink plenty of water or other nonalcoholic beverages. According to a heat exhaustion study done by Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Service, when temperatures climb above 90 degrees, it’s important to drink at least a gallon of liquid per day. ● Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that is light in color. ● Move your exercise routine to early in the morning or late in the evening. ● Never ever leave a person or a pet in the car in hot conditions while you run to do a quick errand. People and animals can succumb to heat exposure and death very quickly in a hot car, as cars can become overheated quickly.

No discussion of safety topics for summer would be complete without talking about bugs. Stinging insects are busy making the rounds of the flowers, and there are many varieties of bugs, like ticks and mosquitoes, waiting for their next innocent victim. To help make yourself and your child a less-attractive meal, avoid scented perfumes and soaps in the summer as well as pools of stagnant water, open food and gardens heavy with blooms. Also, consider using a bug repellent that contains diethyltoluamide, more commonly known as DEET. Follow these tips for applying bug repellant to make sure you are fully covered.

The Water

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, drowning is the leading cause of death for children under the age of 4 years old. Additionally, 390 children die each year on average from water-related accidents. Whether you’re at the pool, beach, lake or water park this summer, keep these safety tips in mind. ● Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth. ● Even if there is a lifeguard on duty, keep an eye on your children. It only takes a few moments for a drowning to occur. ● Never swim alone or in unsupervised locations. Teach children to always swim with a buddy. ● Don’t use swimming aids, such as water wings, for children in the place of life jackets or preservers. ● Shower before swimming and wash your hands after using the restroom or changing diapers. ● Take children on bathroom breaks often.

● Never use bug repellents under clothing, only on exposed skin or clothes. ● Keep repellent away from your nose, mouth and eyes, and be careful with it around your ears. ● Start with a thin film of repellent. If this doesn’t keep the bugs away, use more. ● Most repellents should be washed off your skin and clothing every day. ● Don’t allow children to handle bug repellent, and don’t apply it to their hands. ● Repellents with oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on kids under 3 years old.

by Megan Finley Contributing writer I have been talking to quite a few friends over the past few weeks that will soon have guests rolling in this summer for a visit. I, too, have my in-laws coming to stay with us. Yes, having houseguests can mean more work, but hosting guests does not need to be stressful. Here are 10 ways you can help your visitors feel more comfortable in your home. Prepare the sleeping arrangements. Make sure to prepare your guests’ sleeping arrangements well ahead of their arrival. If you have a small home, do not feel obliged to give up your own bed. However, ensure your guests have a clean, comfortable place to sleep, such as a sofa, airbed or mattress on the floor. Ensure you tell them of the sleeping arrangements ahead of time so there are no surprises. Fresh sheets or a new pillow are always a nice touch. Ensure a place for their belongings. If your home is small and your guests will not have their own room, ensure they are given a place to unpack and keep their suitcases or bags during their stay. Clearing a dresser drawer, closet space with hangers or a shelf in the bathroom is especially helpful. Provide extra toiletries. Although many guests bring their own toiletries,

oftentimes traveling with bulky shampoo bottles or contact solution are not an option. Providing travel size toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, soap and unopened toothbrushes are an exceptional gesture.

es that require recharging. Make sure your guests can charge their devices and have access to your internet.

Offer reading material. Most guests appreciate a reading a book or perusing a magazine in their downtime. Some might even be interested in learning more about the local area. Pick up brochures from local attractions you enjoy or magazines your guests might be interested in. Go ahead and put them on their bedside table or in an area where they can enjoy at their leisure.

Do not forget food and drinks. Stock your kitchen with a selection of beverages. One great tip is to make simple recipes in advance to save you time in the kitchen that can be spent visiting with your guests. Stocking up on simple breakfast foods such as bagels, pastries, cold cereal and milk are always appreciated. Make sure you offer your guests something to eat or drink, and remind them they are welcome to something any time they are hungry or thirsty.

Pick your guests up. Sometimes life happens. However, if at all possible, picking your guests up from the airport or train station is really a great gesture of hospitality. When travelers are exhausted from an overseas flight or have heavy bags to carry, having a little help and a familiar face there waiting can make all the difference in the world.

Make plans. If you have obligations while your guests are in town, make sure they know ahead of time about your plans. Discuss possible activities you and your guest can do together during their visit to ensure their stay is as enjoyable as possible.

Provide towels and linens. Consider how many towels you would appreciate, and provide your guest with a plentiful pile. Ensure the towels are freshly washed and in good shape. No one wants to dry off after a shower with a ratty towel. Consider technology. Most people have a phone, tablet or other devic-

Be yourself. Many of us feel like we are in an inspection or on an audition when we have guests. Is the house clean enough? Are there any glasses in the sink? It is always nice to have a clean house when guests arrive, but do not forget to be yourself. Most guests know this is where you live and do not expect your place to be perfect. Do not forget to relax and enjoy the time together.

Cure the travel bug with a by Megan Finley Contributing writer Many of us find ourselves here in Europe with a laundry list of destinations we would like to visit before going back stateside. Determining which cities to hit first and when oftentimes proves to be a daunting task. Questions like where to stay, how to get there, and budgeting for meals and entertainment can leave a person wondering if planning a vacation is more exhausting than just staying at home. All too often, some of us find ourselves overwhelmed with the choices and end up doing nothing at all. Well now it’s time to consider cruising. Cruises offer a great value for your vacation money because, with a little proactive thinking, travelers can easily plan for almost everything needed for an incredible trip, including food, lodging, entertainment and transportation. Europe offers several cruise lines where kids even sail free or travel at cheaper rates when sharing a cabin with two adults. While discount cruise lines offer an option to purchase drink packages for soft drinks and alcohol-

ic beverages upfront for a much cheaper rater, more exclusive cruise lines often include such amenities in the upfront rate. Additionally, more often than not, travelers can expect flight expenses to be included in the bundled price. Cruises allow travelers to hit multiple port cities and leave their bags in one hotel room. No need to worry about where to have breakfast, how to carry your luggage or if your new hotel room will be as comfortable as the last. Cruising takes the guesswork out of travel. Booking your cruise vacation is made simple by combining transportation, accommodations, itinerary, cabin and meals all in one transaction. No in-between coordination is necessary. Travelers can even enlist the help of a travel agent to arrange the details for minimal fees. Once travelers decide to cruise, the most difficult task of planning is deciding where to go. Western Mediterranean itineraries typically include port stops in Spain, Monaco and Italy. Eastern Mediterranean cruises hit Italy, Croatia, Greece and sometimes Turkey or Israel. A Baltic cruise excursion visits Scandinavia,

Russia and the Norwegian Fjords. Travelers also have the choice of venturing to the British Isles including England, Scotland and London. Do not be afraid to venture away from the most popular ports, including Barcelona, Rome and Venice. Although these destinations do not disappoint, oftentimes travelers find great satisfaction venturing off the beaten trail. Destinations such as Villefranch-sur-Mer in the South of France; St. Petersburg, Russia; or Dubrovnik, Croatia, deserve some consideration. Cruise lines exist for every budget. According to the website Cruise Critic, the price of Eastern Mediterranean cruises are dropping. Many travelers are not making the long trip to the Eastern Mediterranean with the current world events, causing prices to drop dramatically, especially with approaching departure dates. Cruise lines including MSC and Costa Cruises offer a large variety of destinations at a discounted price. For more information, visit www. cruisecritic.com or contact RTT Travel at www.rtttravel.com or your local travel agent.

KMC graduates reflect on their experiences in Germany Story and photos by Thomas Warner Contributing writer

High school graduation day comes and goes annually, and it can be interesting to talk with students who’ve experienced an existence that relatively few American kids get — growing up in Europe. I spoke with a sampling of students who recently graduated from one of the local KMC Department of Defense Dependents Schools-Europe high schools. Some of their experiences in Germany were very smiliar, while others were very different. Below are some of their thoughts: Solenne Kriner Ramstein High School

homework and studies. “I was in the International Baccalaureate program at my middle school in Georgia, and I continued that when I came here,” said Sapp, whose parents both have German ancestry. “The IB program has been a way to earn college credits ahead of time.” Sapp is unique in that he has chosen to attend a university in Kaiserslautern, and he says he wants to make Europe his permanent home. Carrying a 3.6 grade point average as a senior, he plans to study biology and add an emphasis in psychology. Sapp attributes guidance from his Advanced Placement psychology teacher, Len Tarnowski, as being pivotal in his later high school years. “Before I took his class I had pretty much decided I wanted to be an orthodontist,” Sapp said. “I fell in love with psychology, and Mr. Tarnowski really explained or brought up ideas that made me think deeper. “Frau Debra Mol is another person I want to thank,” Sapp continued. “She helped me develop my German skills a lot and allowed me to take a huge step from where I was to where I am now.” Lane Miller Ramstein High School

Born at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to parents who value travel experiences, Kriner has been on trips to Spain, Kenya, France and several other countries, exposing herself to new places and cultures. “I really enjoyed being a part of (the) Model United Nations program and getting to meet with other student leaders in places like Prague and other locales to discuss and negotiate solutions for world problems,” Kriner said. In addition to Model United Nations, Kriner was a member of multiple linguistic honor societies at her school. She also was part of the Royals’ 3,200and 1,600-meter relay teams that won medals at the year-end European meet. Devante Sapp Ramstein High School

Sapp worked multiple part-time jobs during high school to earn extra cash, and he spent a lot of time at the base library helping other students with

“My dad was active-duty Air Force and my mom is Hungarian, so I am fluent in her language, and we go all the time to see family (in Hungary),” Brown said. “Budapest is a fun, big city, but I also like doing the small-town thing when we go to Hungary.” Brown was big into athletics and capped this senior year as a captain on the basketball and track teams at KHS. He will enroll at the University of Central Florida to study sports science, with an eventual graduate degree in physical therapy. “Playing sports year after year, I got interested in (physical therapy) because of all the injuries I had,” Brown said. “One therapist, Andre Griggs at LRMC, really piqued my interest with the way he was so passionate about his job.” Anna Roberts Kaiserslautern High School

Also offering praise to Debra Mol, Miller has extended her German speaking and writing skills since moving to Germany in the eighth grade. Miller spent time interning at a local German doctor’s office and gained invaluable conversational practice. She now has plans to spend a gap year working with a goodwill organization in Thailand. “Being in Europe provides cultural variety and teaches confidence skills with regard to travel,” Miller said. “I feel really confident with my ability to travel and take on any challenge.” She wants to concentrate on languages, a career in a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathrelated field and perhaps an international relations or diplomatic career. “I love history and politics,” Miller said, pointing out her participation in the same Model United Nations program that Kriner was part of. Robert Brown Kaiserslautern High School Brown learned to ride the train at an early age and loves the public transportation infrastructure that’s found throughout Germany and much of Europe. Born at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, he has spent his entire life immersing in the culture here.

Roberts wound up the 2016 valedictorian of KHS among a senior class of about 160 students. She took Mandarin Chinese for two semesters and was enrolled in a multitude of Advanced Placement classes during her time at KHS. Roberts plans on studying law in college. “My AP Government class with Mr. Mark Fairchild is the reason I am choosing to go into law,” Roberts said. “He got us to think about not just one perspective.” She also appreciates the opportunities she has to travel and experience new cultures. “It’s its own thing, this little American enclave over here, and you get to do things so many others wouldn’t consider,” Roberts said. “When my mother booked a trip to Egypt, it was the coolest thing I’d ever done — standing in front of the Great Pyramids at age seven. We went to Japan last year, and it was completely different than anything I’ve ever experienced.” See GRADUATES, Page 20

Upcoming beer and wine festivals across Germany by Katie F. Boltuch Contributing writer

Merchat was quick to fall in love with the architecture and wide range of building styles she saw in Germany, France, Italy, England, the Netherlands, Austria and Spain. She plans to enroll at a small college in Vermont and major in psychology. She wants to focus her studies on learning how to help kids with special needs. Merchat’s parents will remain in Germany, and she, like many other new high school graduates, is faced with leaving her family for the first time. “It might be terrifying for the first part of it, but things will get better,” Merchat said. “I’m definitely ready for college.” Kofi Adutwum Baumholder High School

She plans to study psychology at one of Germany’s highest-acclaimed academic and research schools — Jacobs University in Bremen. Colon will be moving several hours away to a campus located high into eastern Germany, near the North Sea. “I am excited to leave because I have been here, like, forever,” Colon said. “Another part of me is sad to go.

Adutwum became a whiz at computers and information systems and now plans to take things much further in college. “I was a designer for our school website,” Adutwum said, crediting BHS information systems instructor Radley Ramirez for the inspiration to now major in information technologies and minor in computer science. Adutwum’s large family has routinely made treks to the homeland of Ghana, but with a mother who hails from Germany, he has become fluent in both German and English. Adutwum also embraces the Puerto Rican heritage within his family and has assimilated with several cultural customs.

Sparks was the BHS valedictorian, and says he got a lot out of the computer-aided design classes at Baumholder. He’s spent practically his entire life in Germany and feels at home here. “Whenever somebody asks me where home is, I’m inclined to say Missouri because that’s where I was born. But really, it’s been Baumholder and Germany for pretty much forever,” Sparks said. Sparks is eager to head to college and plans to study mechanical engineering at a large university in Texas. “In school I’ve taken several AP courses and gotten college credits,” Sparks said. “All of that has prepared me for the level of difficulty that I will be seeing in college. I am ready to get started.”

Learn about the German spa culture

Photo by Maridav / Shutterstock.com

by Megan Finley Contributing Writer Germany is the birthplace of homeopathy as well as more than 350 approved health resorts and spas. The word spa is an acronym for the latin phrase “sanus per aquam,” meaning “health by water.” The Germans adopted the spa culture from the Roman empire when bathing was used by soldiers returning from battle as a form of hydrotherapy. Europe’s royalty and leaders would meet at the popular German spa resort towns for a little rest and relaxation. In modern Germany, most citizens with the support of the German federal health care system can take advantage of one of the most allinclusive wellness spa cultures in Europe. Every three years, those

who enjoy the perks of the German medical system may be eligible to request a medical cure for ailments, including stress, headaches and exhaustion. If approved, the patient is sent to a health spa, usually for about three weeks, where they receive a customized exercise, relaxation and nutrition regimen. Most patients leave the spa feeling relaxed and refreshed. These spas are often referred to in German as “Heilbad,” meaning “healing bath,” or “Kurort,” meaning “cure place.” Towns with the word “Bad” before the town name, for example Bad Duerkheim, have met stringent air and water quality standards. These towns are known for providing some of the best medical staff and infrastructures for patients seeking medical treatment. Outside of the healing facilities,

anyone can enjoy the leisure spas. Thermal baths offer an opportunity to relax in a natural atmosphere, free of noise and overstimulation. Spa etiquette is quite particular, so if you decide to partake, you should pay careful attention to certain rules. Depending on the spa, swimsuits may be worn in pool areas. However, the saunas, steam baths and massage areas are towelonly. Showering before entering the pools, saunas or baths is always required. Footwear must be left outside the saunas, but feel free to wear shoes into the steam baths. When entering the sauna, shut the door quickly to keep the heat inside. Last but not least, always sit or lie on a towel. One important thing to keep in mind is the German’s relaxed attitude towards nudity. Therapists

will not worry so much about keeping clients covered. Most areas of the spa are coed and nude. Just stay relaxed and enjoy the experience. The southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg offers great resort experiences at a variety of locations. Baden-Baden and Bad Duerrheim are just two of the many towns in the sate offering a variety of spa choices. BadenWuerttemberg hugs the border of France, and visitors enjoy not only the spas but fantastic food as well. Whether you want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life or simply experience one of Germany’s most enjoyable cultural aspects, the spa experience may be just the right choice.

MAN ON THE STREET Based on your experience living in Germany, what is one piece of advice you would give newcomers moving to the KMC? Kurt Raducha Interviews and photos by Thomas Warner Contributing writer

Tech. Sgt. Kevin Bennett “This is a place with a highway system that lets you go as fast as you want in certain areas and there are no slowdown areas, where in other places you would have to pay tolls. Take advantage of that while you are here.”

Tech. Sgt. Elizabeth Montanez-Hearne “The (Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation) One Stop shop at Landstuhl is very laid back and a wonderful place to get answers on questions, sign up for activities for your kids or for adults, get VAT forms and many other things. People who arrive should check out that place as one of the first things they do.”

“Don’t be scared if you don’t speak the language. Get out, travel and experience the culture. It’s easier than you think. And don’t forget to bring Euros!”

Staff Sgt. Edis Rodriguez-Hernandez “Everybody says to take advantage of living in Europe, but remember that small towns and small places can be really exciting and interesting and not just the big cities.”

“People who come here and are in temporary lodging shouldn’t rush out and buy a certain phone or internet service. They should wait to make sure (you know) what companies have the best signal in the village or place where they choose a home.”

Sgt. 1st Class Mark M. Murphy

Robert M. Helferich

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for most people who come here, and the best advice is to enjoy it to the fullest while you are living in Germany. There is so much to see and do, and you need to see as much as possible in the time you are here.”

“I’ve been here 40 years, and I’d tell anyone who came here and was considering living here permanently to weigh the options and look at all the benefits, or the benefits they might lose, by becoming a German citizen. It’s a lot to consider from both sides, and it requires a lot of thought.”

Kaiserslautern American

by Megan Finley Contributing writer On October 31, when many Americans are dressing up as ghosts and goblins and heading out for tricks and treats, Germans are commemorating when the German monk and theologian Martin Luther nailed his proposal to the doors of a church in 1517. October 31 is the German holiday Reformation Day, or “Reformationstag” in German. Martin Luther, also known as the father of Protestantism, was a religious reformer. Luther was unhappy with the amount of power the Catholic Church possessed in people’s lives. In the early 1500s, the Catholic Church issued documents called indulgences. These documents granted full or partial pardon of one’s sins. Although the indulgences were often issued after prayer or good deeds, they were also sold for money. In protest of certain religious beliefs and practices of this time, Luther nailed what is known as the “95 Theses” on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517. This act prompted the start of the reformation.

Page 29

In Germany, the reformation started in approximately 1517 and ended around 1648. During this time, Germany experienced an enormous amount of religious, as well as social, changes. The Catholic Church’s power between the people and God was questioned, and new Christian movements were sparked. As a result of Luther’s insolence against the Catholic Church, the pope excommunicated him. Luther escaped to Wartburg Castle in the state of Thuringia, Germany, where he posed as a monk and directed his efforts towards making a German translation of the Bible. Luther wanted to make the Bible more accessible to all people. The five German states of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony Anhalt and Thuringia celebrate this holiday. On this day, many Lutherans, as well as other reformed churches, attend a service marking the anniversary of Martin Luther’s proclamation. Other people use this day off work as an opportunity to spend time with loved ones.

by Megan Finley Contributing Writer he Rhine River offers a magical German experience with its breathtaking scenery, half-timbered houses, historic castles, dramatic hillsides and delicious wines. May to mid-October is the perfect time to explore the Rhine, as most places all but shut down during the winter months. Here are three stops along the Rhine River you will not want to miss out on. Just over an hour’s drive from Kaiserslautern, sightseers can explore Saint Goar, a Rhine River town first settled during Roman times. The town was named after Goar of Aquitaine, a young monk who came to live on the site around 530. Goar lived as a hermit in a cave on the Rhine, working as a missionary to the local people. Goar was famous for his great hospitality, particularly towards the boatmen on the Rhine. Over the years, many tales have been told about Goar of Aquitaine. After his death in 575, his resting place

Kaiserslautern American

became a pilgrimage site, and the town was named after him. While in Saint Goar, sightseers can visit Rheinfels Castle, which dates back to 1245. In its prime, Rheinfels Castle covered five times its current area. It is the largest castle overlooking the Rhine. One of the most famous points near the town is the site of the Lorelei rock. The myth tells a story of a beautiful woman named Lore Lay who betrayed her sweetheart. She was accused of bewitching men and causing their death. Rather than sentence her to death, the bishop committed Lore Lay to a nunnery. Three knights accompanied Lore Lay on her journey to the nunnery. When they came to the rock, Lore Lay asked the knight’s permission to climb it and view the Rhine one more time. In doing so, she thought she saw her love in the Rhine and fell to her death. According to the legend, the rock echoes the sound of her name. Many believe Lore Lay distracts shipmen with her beauty and her singing, causing them to crash onto the rocks. Just a little over an hour’s drive

from Kaiserslautern, Bacharach offers historic streets, half-timbered houses, historic churches, great wine and Stahleck Castle. Many cozy street-side cafes offer local wines as well as delicious regional specialties including Rhine goat and local game. After a yummy meal, families can enjoy a scenic hike along one of Bacharach’s many routes. No day excursion is complete in Germany without visiting a castle or two. Standing commandingly on a riverside crag is Stahleck Castle, a 12th-century fortification. During World War II, Stahleck became one of 27 “jugendburgen,” or “youth castles,” used for the indoctrination of teenagers and young adults. From 1940 to 1943, the castle served as a military hospital. In January 1943, the castle was used as an internment camp for German youth who exhibited disloyalty to the Nazi Party, some of which were taken from Stahleck to concentration camps. From June 1943 until the following summer of 1944, Stahleck was used as a work and military training camp for Germans between the ages of 14 and 18 years. One of the most photographed

July 8, 2016

historic half-timbered houses in the world is the Alte Haus in Bacharach. Built in 1368, the home is one of the best-preserved homes of its time in Germany. The house is located at Oberstrasse 61, 55422 Bacharach. An hour and a half north of Kaiserslautern on the Rhine River lies the charming village of Brauach. With more than 3,000 inhabitants, the town became especially famous for its location below the Marksburg, the only surviving castle on the Middle Rhine. Dating back to the 1200s, the Marksburg was used for protection rather than a residence for royalty. In the 19th century after the abolishment of the Holy Roman Empire by French emperor Napoleon, the castle was used as a prison and a home for disabled soldiers. Braubach is also the home of Saint Barbara Church, built directly on the city walls in the year 1276. The original tower and choir still stand today. With its half-timbered houses dating back to the 16th century and the majestic Marksburg castle, Braubach makes for the perfect day trip on the Rhine River.

At The Movies Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (R) When their sister Jeanie announces her Hawaiian wedding plans, the family insists Mike and Dave bring respectable dates. To help them find dates, the brothers place an online ad, and the ad goes viral. Starring Zac Efron and Adam DeVine. The Secret Life of Pets (PG)

Courtesy of Movieweb.com

For one bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That’s when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks. The buildings top dog Max, a quick-witted terrier rescue who’s convinced he sits at the center of his owner’s universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke, a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo find themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy, yet cunning, bunny named Snowball, who’s building an army of ex-pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity — all before dinner time. Starring Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart.
