BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Group moves forward to address heroin issue By Amanda Joering

ajoering@nky.com

Though it’s still in the beginning stages, the Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact and Response Workgroup is making progress in its efforts to address the area’s heroin epidemic.

The group, part of the NKY Vision 2015, began when Dr. Jeremy Engel, a family doctor with St. Elizabeth Physicians in Bellevue, started seeing a dramatic increase in heroin use among his patients and relatives of his patients. Engel, who said he has always

Newport AAA Car Care opens, hosts food drive By Amanda Joering

ajoering@nky.com

NEWPORT — AAA and Bob Sumerel Tire and Service have opened the doors of their first Newport location and are already working to give something back to the community. From now through the end of the store’s grand opening events, Saturday, Dec. 15, the store is collecting donations of canned goods and non-perishable food items for the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission (NKCAC), a local nonprofit group that provides assistance to low-income people. Cheryl Parker, public affairs manager for AAA, said since the new store is opening around the holidays, they thought this would be the perfect time to get the company involved in helping the community. After making some calls, Parker said they found that the NKCAC is out of food in its pantry. “We thought, what a great way for our company to give back to the community,” Parker said. “We are thrilled to be able to involve our customers in this effort to give back.” Katie Ashcraft, the manager of the NKCAC neighborhood center in Newport, said since the pantry is small and

runs solely on food donations, they often run out of food in the winter months. Ashcraft said most of their food comes from the postal carrier food drive in May, which brings in a lot of food, but not enough to last until this time of year. But, the lack of food doesn’t mean a lack of need, and many people who come to the NKCAC for help in other ways, like the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), often ask for help with food as well, Ashcraft said. Through the partnership with AAA, which Parker said she hopes to continue in the future, Ashcraft said more Campbell County residents will receive food from their pantry this holiday season.

been an activist for public health in the area and been interested in high impact issues that affect the community, said he quickly realized something had to be done. “Heroin just seemed to be everywhere,” Engel said. “I realized that this is a problem that Northern Kentucky didn’t have

the resources to address.” This led to the idea for the workgroup, a committee made of up of health care professionals, law enforcement, and treatment program representatives, working together to research and address heroin-related issues. Engel presented his idea to the

Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce at a health committee meeting, and began recruiting for the group. “My goal was to find the people who were already moving on this issue and get them all togethSee HEROIN, Page A2

Jeweler moves to Cold Spring First move in 53 years of business By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

COLD SPRING — Marshall Granger Jr. says he’s telling people in jest he only plans to move his family namesake jewelry store every 53 years. Marshall Granger Jewelers moved from Fort Thomas and reopened in Cold Spring, at 3955 Alexandria Pike, Oct. 2. Granger said he renovated a former doctor’s office and doubled his showroom space to 2,000 square feet. Space for the staff of jewelers and a diamond-setter was also increased by the move, he said. Granger said he has looked for more than three years for space in Fort Thomas where his father, Marshall Granger Sr., founded the business 53 years ago. “This is just the closest we could get and still pick up more than double the space that we had,” he said. In addition to selling new and used jewelry, each jeweler on staff is required to take the Gemological Institute Accredited Jewelry Professional Course, Granger said. “We do manufacture, and we actually do work for over 100 other jewelry stores,” he said. “We

IS THERE A CATCH? The qualifying vehicle must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012. It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is placed in service. So if you choose to use it for both personal and business use, the cost eligible for deduction would be the percentage used for business. WHAT’S THE URGENCY? For 2013, all indications are that the Section 179 deduction limitation will be reduced to only $25,000 and any bonus depreciation deduction will be eliminated. So the December 31, 2012, deadline is approaching quickly.

merce initially called him about joining the workgroup, he was excited to hear that a group like this was in the works. “The heroin epidemic in this area is so bad, this (group) is much needed,” said Daly, who is one of the committee members representing the Northern Kentucky Police Chiefs Association. “We all see the issues the heroin epidemic is causing in our communities.” Fort Thomas Lieutenant Rich Whitford, who is also participating in the group, said he sees the affect of heroin every day in his investigations. “It’s really hard to wrap your head around it when you think of all the ways this epidemic is affecting this area,” Whitford said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” Whitford is part of the subcommittee, led partly by Daly, that is looking at the impact heroin is having on the area and assessing the cost of this problem center. “We have a lot of work to do over the next few months,” Daly said. “This is a huge project to take on, but I think it’s going to make such a big difference.” Engel said he hopes to have a plan in place in January.

Bishop Brossart plans approved By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Alexandria city officials have approved site development plans for a new $7 million addition at Bishop Brossart High School. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-0 in favor of accepting the Catholic high school’s plans during a Tuesday, Dec. 4, meeting. Principal Richard Stewart said the school anticipates breaking ground on the planned addition in the spring after awarding construction bids – probably in January. Donations in a capital campaign have already exceeded the initial $7 million target, and solicitation for more funds is ongoing, Stewart said. “The more we can bring in, the more we can do, that’s sort of been our mantra with this,” he said. Each of the two floors of the new addition will measure about 17,800 square feet for a total of more than 35,000 square feet, Stewart said. Construction is expected to be complete within a year once work begins, he said. A July 19 article in The Alexandria Recorder contained a detailed account of school representatives explanation of elements within the edition. The addition will create a new front entrance to the school with an atrium and grand staircase, trophy showcase area and a spirit shop nearby. A new college counseling center will be

A new chapel will be built for class masses, and a library/media center, fine arts studio, classroom and more than 400-seat theater will all be part of the new space. Since July, a music room has also been added into the plans, Stewart said. The site plan for Bishop Brossart was approved 5-0, with planning and zoning member Susi Thomas leaving the meeting temporarily citing a potential conflict, in order to avoid vot-

School book drive helps homeless By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County Day Treatment teacher Theresa Snyder sits down with some of the books already collected Friday, Dec. 7, for the Books for the Heart drive she and students are continuing through Jan. 31 for homeless families served by the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northern Kentucky. CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

ALEXANDRIA — The Campbell County Day Treatment Center at Campbell County Schools is collecting books for the homeless community in Northern Kentucky until Jan. 31. The center provides in district education alternatives for students, and is located at 51 Orchard Lane, Alexandria. Donations will go to the library at the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northern Kentucky, said teacher Theresa Snyder, organizer of the school’s Books from the Heart donation drive. The school is collecting new or gently used books for children and adults

Donations for the Books from the Heart drive will be accepted at the Campbell County Day Treatment Center, 51 Orchard Lane, Alexandria, through Jan. 31. For information email theresa.snyder@campbell.kyschools.us.

since the Interfaith Hospitality Network serves homeless families, Snyder said. If they like a book, the people served by the network are often able to take a book they like with them to keep, she said. Snyder said she works with students in grades 7-12, usually on a one-to-one basis.

Students from the Day Treatment Center routinely travel to the network’s offices to help out the youngest children with literacy by reading to them or making crafts, she said. It’s an ongoing service project for the students, Snyder said. Snyder said she decided to give to the network because she has a friend who interned, and she knew they needed books. For the students trips to the network are also a lesson in difficult situations other people are dealing with, she said. Many students saw how families became homeless because of issues including losing a job or losing a husband to deportation and having to try to continue to raise a family, Snyder said.

SCHOOL NOTES Teachers become nationally certified

Campbell County Schools has two new nationally certified teachers. Lacy Owen of Crossroads Elementary School in Cold Spring, and Sarah Pershing of Grant’s Lick Elementary School have both received National Board Certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, according to a news release from Campbell County Schools. For information about the national board and the national standards Owen and Pershing had to meet visit the website http://www.nbpts.org/.

The grant will be used to buy about 700 new books for the center’s library for students to use there, according to a news release from Campbell County Schools. The school district administers education programs at the detention center in Newport.

Big Box of Books event promotes reading By Amanda Joering ajoering@nky.com

DAYTON — When it comes to promoting literacy, Lincoln Elementary School officials say they’ll do anything they can to get children reading. From a variety of reading programs in the classrooms to literacy information for parents, the school is working to promote literacy and improve students reading scores, said Rosann Sharon, president of the school board. “Anything we can do to get kids reading and get parents involved is a good thing,” Sharon said. To keep in line with their goal, the school hosted a My Big Box of Books event Wednesday, Dec. 5. The event, sponsored by ReadAlong.org and the Northern Kentucky Education Council, included dinner, three sessions for parents about how to promote literacy and a box of books for each child valued at $40-$50 each. Superintendent Jay Brewer said Polly Page, executive director of the education council, approached the school about having the event after she was contact by a representative from ReadAloud.org. Brewer said the school jumped at the chance to be part of this event. “The kids get books and the parents get training, that’s a great combination,”

Dave Davies and Grayson Davies, 4, enjoy dinner at the Big Box of Books event. AMANDA JOERING/COMMUNITY RECORDER Brewer said. Assistant principal Heather Dragan said the event, geared to children ages 0-6 and their caregivers, was promoted not only at the school, but in preschools and day care centers in the city, bringing in 73 families, 228 people total, for the event. Dragan said she was thrilled with the turnout and how they were able to get the younger kids and their families involved. “Early literacy is so important, we are really trying to get parents reading to

their kids at an early age,” Dragan said. “Children who have at least 1,000 hours or more of lap-time, where they are read to, are much more likely to have the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten.” Candace Kendle, president of ReadAloud.org, a nonprofit organization that promotes reading aloud in families nationwide, said the group is working on a national campaign to get every child read to at least 15 minutes every day. “We are trying to engage parents in reading strategies and teach them the importance of reading every day,” Kendle said. What many don’t realize, Kendle said, is that the brain starts developing at birth and is very active until the age of 4, making the early years vital to learning and literacy. Kendle said statistics show that more than half of the nation’s children are not read to on a regular basis, often because parents don’t know the importance of early literacy. In those cases, students often struggle in school. “This isn’t just about the teachers,” Kendle said. “If the kids aren’t ready with a strong foundation when they start school, the teachers can’t build upon it.” For more information about the My Big Box of Books program, visit www.readaloud.org.

Swimmers make splash in Campbell County By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Swimming season is under way in Campbell County. Here is a look at local teams:

Campbell County

The Camels have a deep team returning for sixth-year head coach Amy Dorsey. She said several boys are threatening school records, and the girls team is young with several promising newcomers. Returning starters include Matthew Dreyer, Matthew Neiser, Kyle VanDruten, Adam Leopold, John Leopold, Kyle Houston, Logan Steele and Brandon Cartwright on the boys team. Girls returners include Ally Baker, Kristen Spahr, Nicole Robertson, Amberlee Stemmer and Allison West. The preseason roster has 67 athletes, including 19 divers.

Bishop Brossart

Senior Jacob Mader returns as the charter member of the Brossart swimming program. As the school’s first varsity swimmer last year, he finished third in the region in the 200 individual medley and fifth in the 100 breaststroke. He qualified for state in the IM and finished 15th. His father and head coach Richard Mader said his goal is to finish in the top eight at state and earn a medal.

A strong work ethic and bench have helped the Bishop Brossart girls basketball team to a 4-1 early-season record, good enough for a first-place tie with Scott in the 37th District. The girls picked up wins over Lloyd, Calvary Christian, Silver Grove and Ryle, with the only loss to Highlands. As Brossart heads into a conference game with Scott Dec. 15, head coach Josh Feldmann took a few minutes to talk about the season so far with the Recorder. Question: Has this season started as expected in your opinion, or exceeded your expectations? Answer: “This season has started as I expected. I knew we would play hard and feel as though we are deeper than last season. With this being our third season together the upperclassmen have a familiarity with the system and terminology, which helps. Playing Ryle and Highlands on back-to-back nights early in the system helped to simulate a regional tournament set up which only helps.” Q: After a few games, what are the biggest adjustments or improvements your team needs to make? A: “We need to become a more consistent team on the offensive end, which I am sure most teams struggle with early on. Defense usually translates faster than offense.”

Abby Stadtmiller of Bishop Brossart prepares to put up a shot as Highlands’ Ava Abner defends. MATTHEW BECK/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS Q: Has health/injuries played a factor at all yet? A: “Knock on wood, not yet. We’ve had the customary bumps and bruises but it is a long season so we have to have a philosophy of ‘next man in,’ so our younger players are ready to contribute if called upon.” Q: Who on your team has surprised you the most so far? A: “I don’t want to single out just one player because I feel all of our players work hard, but this year we have had new contributions from juniors Cori Ziegler and Morgan Vest. Those two along with Madison Eisenman give us potent players off the bench and valuable depth.” Q: What is the focus in practices heading into the first of the year? A: “As I mentioned earlier trying to get better on the offen-

sive end of the floor and spoonfeeding new concepts. We want to be able to adapt to different situations because teams will challenge us with new schemes throughout the season.” Q: Do you think early-season wins make a big difference as far as momentum goes, or are they still just learning experiences at this point? A: “Definitely a combination, you can’t allow a loss particularly early in the season hang with you. But you want your kids to know as much as possible how much you appreciate their efforts especially after a big win. These games are exhibitions as we march toward the ‘All A’ (January) and districts/regionals. Hopefully we can put ourselves in a position to peak at the right times. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.”

Red Devil Midgets are Super Bowl champions Community Recorder

The Red Devils Midgets avenged their only loss of the season and beat the Bengal Tigers from Covington 20-6 on Nov. 3 at Scott High School to call themselves Super Bowl champions. The team finished the year 12-1 and outscored their opponents 340 to 88 during the year. The Super Bowl began with a big momentum shift with the opening kickoff as Preston Agee recovered an onside kick. From there the Red Devil offense put together a four-minute drive capped by quarterback Cameron Hergott’s touchdown and successful 2-point conversion. The stout Red Devil defense then forced a turnover, a fumble recovery by LB Brad Russell. Running back Elijah Howard quickly turned it into another Red Devil touchdown and the lead grew to 16. After another defen-

sive stop, which included a great play by linebacker Luke Landrum, the Red Devils marched down the field again. Set up by an explosive run by Howard, Jimmy Ramsey punched in the end zone with a powerful touchdown run and the lead ballooned to 20-0 at the half. The defense did surrender a late touchdown on a great run by a Bengal Tiger running back but no more. The offense did enough to run out the clock and secure the win. This marks Coach Rob Howard and his staff’s (Steve ‘Drago’ Shelton, Greg Greene, Brian Agee and Denny Lehmkuhl) first Super Bowl victory and three overall championship in four years. The team had dominant offensive and defensive line play all season led by Derek Minning, Brad Russell, Turner Shelton, Jack Greene, Crosley Gray, Crew Berkley, Preston

Agee, Justin McVey, Landon Davis, Max Morgan, Kaden Morency, Nicholas Osburg and Quentin Meyer. The defensive secondary, line backers and wide receivers also a great season by bringing in three interceptions and catching 10 passes for 300 yards and five touchdowns. The skills positions were anchored by Ramsey, Tommy Kempf, Braden Baioni, Luke Landrum, Crew Berkley, Hergott, Brad Russell, Howard and Crosley Gray. The offensive leaders included Howard, who finished the season with 1,875 yards and 31 TDs with a 17.4 average yard per carry. Hergott also finished the season with more than 1,000 rushing as well as more than 200 yards passing and a combined 18 touchdowns. Overall, 16 boys had a rushing attempt and 11 players scored for the Red Devils Midgets.

ninth in the individual medley at regionals and freshman Ben Wolber had two top-15 solo finishes in regionals as well. “For this year’s team, I hope that both our girls’ and boys’ team will improve their places at the regional and state levels. This would entail more of our swimmers and divers scoring in the Top 12 at the regional Meet,” Johnson said.

We have a boys team now that is almost as large as our girls team, which will help with our team finishes at regionals and state this year. This year’s team also has more year-round swimmers than in the past.” The girls team is led by Carly Hill, a sophomore and two-time defending regional champion in diving. She finished sixth in the state last year. Freshman Shelby Whitt same in four events in the state meet last year, helping the Bluebirds break school records in the 200 free and 400 free relays.

Is it time to refinance your home mortgage?

Looking to lower your monthly payments? Are you looking to consolidate debt? In today’s recovering economy, these questions are top of mind for many borrowers. Millions of Americans are “underwater” or faced with the challenge of owing more on their mortgages than their homes may be worth and are struggling to make monthly payments. With extended government programs and currently low mortgage rates, refinancing may be a simple and beneficial option to help you and your family save money and stay in your home.

In the simplest terms, refinancing your home mortgage allows you to apply for a new term and interest rate to Bob Lewis help you pay COMMUNITY off an existing RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST loan. By taking advantage of a lower interest rate, you may be able to reduce your monthly payments and lower your overall mortgage costs. This can be especially helpful

A solution to the bridge ‘crisis’ Why are local business leaders spending $2 million to hire a public relations firm to “persuade” Northern Kentuckians to raise taxes on themselves? Do they think we’re that stupid? Unfortunately, they know we’re that stupid. Our business leaders Tom Wurtz are going COMMUNITY about this RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST Brent Spence Bridge “crisis” all wrong. The solution is easier than anyone thinks. I recommend the Midwest create a Brent Spence Lottery (B.S.L.). The recent Powerball insanity is the inspiration behind this brilliant concept. The B.S.L. should be almost impossible to win. Impossible odds don’t seem to deter gullible people. I recommend the B.S.L. use a combination of numbers, letters and animals to make the odds as unobtainable as Northern Kentuckians getting cancer from drinking our water. Now that is as close to impossible as you can get. Each week there will be no winners and that will make the following week’s tax refund scam even larger, causing more people to throw money into the government coffers. Soon the B.S.L. will be in the $500 million range. Once that happens, the bridge will be funded in no time. The good news is only gullible people who play the B.S. Lottery will waste their money. I’m a little bit surprised that our talented local business leaders didn’t think of it first. There’s no need for tolls, therefore the federal government can continue to waste almost $4 trillion per year. For deep-thinkers, that amount equals the cost of

building 1,600 Brent Spence Bridges per year. For those who can’t handle big numbers, that amount equals $11 billion per day or four Brent Spence Bridges per day. Everyone wins. Incompetent and corrupt federal and state politicians can continue to waste money and do whatever it is they do all day. We will not need public-private partnerships where politicians and businesses climb into bed together and procreate something on taxpayers that resembles Rosemary’s baby. Our business leaders will save $2 million dollars so they will not have to pass that loss on to consumers like us. The gullible idiots that play the lottery can feel good about themselves and dream about being wealthy by doing nothing more than standing in line. I know it sounds crazy enough to work. Now that I think about the Brent Spence Lottery, it’s a ridiculous idea. Do you remember back in 1989 when the Kentucky Lottery began and helped transform our children into rocket scientists? I don’t either! Instead of our children becoming rockets, they became rocks. The Kentucky Lottery is just a tax-taking scam that has convinced useful idiots to voluntarily give tax-takers more money to waste. Here’s a better idea. I recommend legislation called You Neglected It, You Pay For It Legislative Act of 2013. This bill will confiscate federal pensions from all members of Congress since 1970. All their pension funds will be transferred to the Brent Spence Project. Only after the bridge is rebuilt and paid off, will pensions be restored to these tax-takers. I like this idea better than tolls. Tom Wurtz is president of Tom Wurtz Consulting and a resident of Fort Mitchell.

A publication of

for underwater borrowers struggling to make current loan payments due to a change in a financial situation or when faced with other significant expenses. Money saved through refinancing also may increase your individual cash flow and help you pay off or consolidate other debt, including credit cards. Refinancing also may allow you to shorten the length of your mortgage term. If you have additional funds available, you may be able to adjust your loan to a shorter term with a lower interest rate, which can ultimately help you pay off your mortgage loan faster.

Many homeowners may be eligible for the government’s enhanced Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which was designed in 2009 to help underwater borrowers refinance. During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Federal Housing Finance Agency announced significant modifications to this program, called HARP 2.0, which has been extended until December 2013. This program continues to change, and some borrowers who were not qualified under the former program may qualify under HARP 2.0. The HARP 2.0 program can

benefit borrowers, who are current on their mortgage payments and have not had a late payment in the past six months and no more than one late payment in the past 12 months. This program is designed for borrowers whose existing loan has been sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on or before May 31, 2009. To help you understand if refinancing is right for you, you should contact your current mortgage lender or another financial institution to review your available options. Bob Lewis is senior vice president and head of Fifth Third Mortgage Co.

Never too old for technology Our culture professes that the modern world of technology is completely independent from the archaic sphere in which our grandparents reside. I too shared this feeling until recently, when Alexa Schulte my allusions as COMMUNITY such were RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST quickly dismantled after conducting several interviews with the “elderly” of our society. The majority of people in older generations who have an aversion to technology do so because of their resistance to change. Barbara Connor, a retired housewife living in Florida with her husband William, has had a difficult time adjusting to the new technological age. She says, “I really dislike new things, doesn’t matter what they are. I resist change, but then when I have it, I think it’s the most wonderful thing in the world.” It wasn’t only that the opposed interviewees resisted change in general, but they also found the pace of change to be overwhelming. Helen Kreitzburg, a retired retail manager living in Pittsburgh, said, “For people like me, who are just beginning to use the device, it is really frustrating because I am still trying to get used to the old version when they come out with something new.” Shirley Dershowitz, from New York, has coined her era the “sandwich generation” because most of them let the technological wave pass by without becoming very involved with it. She says, “Little by little we will be forced to use the computer, whether we like it or not ... we’re really the sandwich generation. We are being forced to change because we have too many years left.” Although Mrs. Dershowitz

is not ecstatic about this change, she understands it is bound to happen and will approach the challenge head on. Instead of being “forced to change” as Mrs. Dershowitz stated, many grandparents have embraced this change, even welcomed it. For them, email, social networking and video chatting are used to communicate with family and friends. Email is by far the most popular Internet activity among older generations because it is the easiest and most convenient form of correspondence. Robert Paul, my 72-year-old grandfather who is also vice president of sales and marketing at Magna Group in Detroit, prefers email “because you don’t have to sit and wait around for an answer, which quite frankly, I don’t have time for.” Although the majority of the interviewees said they did not operate a social media account, those who did stated the foremost reason was to increase communication with their

grandchildren. May Johnson says, “I only get on a few times a year, and when I do, it is to talk with Summer and Sydney (her grandchildren). They don’t answer their phones anymore, so Facebook is the best way.” Skype and other forms of video chatting, although not exceedingly popular, are employed in the same way. Margaret Schrand will not go outside the house without a full application of makeup, so she adheres to these same rules when videochatting her children and grandchildren. “Oh yes, I do enjoy Skyping Kimberly and her children,” she says, “but of course only if my makeup is on.” Although each participant possessed a distinctive approach regarding his or her relationship with technology, prevalent throughout each phone call was the theme of courage. Our grandparents are diving into this strange and overwhelming realm of technology without an ounce of experience. Baptism by fire, you could say. I am humbled that I had the chance to hear these unconventional stories firsthand, but I also feel compelled to share it with willing ears. It is for that reason that I am writing in my room on a Saturday afternoon. This is not a story of the meek and feeble, this is a story of determination, of not giving up. Although this strange new world has been thrust upon them, the “old” people are adapting. Shirley Dershowitz couldn’t have put it better when she said, “As you know, I don’t like things to change, but of course the only thing in life you can guarantee is that there will be change. You might not always be ready for it, but you sure as hell better learn to embrace it.” Alexa Schulte is a junior at Notre Dame Academy. She is interning at the Community Recorder.

More holiday recipes: Ruth Lyons’ coffecake and peppermint bark Ruth Lyons’ coffeecake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients. Add oil and stir until crumbly. Reserve and set aside 3⁄4 cup for topping. Add vinegar to milk, then add to sugar mixture. Add egg and soda; mix well. Pour into a sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Sprinkle with topping. Bake 30 minutes.

My best clone of Williams-Sonoma peppermint bark You didn’t think I could let the holidays go by without sharing yet another version, did you? Some of you have had trouble in the past with the bark shattering/separating. That happens somewhat even with the purchased bark, but this recipe keeps that to a minimum, if at all. Out of all the recipes I’ve made for bark throughout the years, using different melting methods and chocolates, I’ve come back to my classic way of teaching students. By the way, check out the photo. Can you tell which is mine and which is Williams-Sonoma’s? I used Kroger real semi-sweet and white chocolate morsels. 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips, divided into 11⁄4 cup and 3⁄4 cup measures 11⁄2 teaspoons peppermint extract, divided into 1 teaspoon and 1⁄2 teaspoon measures 23⁄4 cups white chocolate chips, divided into 21⁄4 cup and 1⁄2 cup measures 1 ⁄4 cup crushed peppermint candy

Line a cookie sheet

with one piece of foil, about 10 inches by 12 inches. Or do the same in a 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Put 11⁄4 cups semi-sweet chocolate in heat proof bowl. Set over a saucepan that has 1 inch of steaming water, making sure bowl does not touch water. (This is a makeshift double boiler). Heat should be turned to low. Stir until chocolate is just about melted, then remove bowl from pan and stir 3⁄4cup more in rest of semisweet

I have a few versions of this recipe, but this is the one that’s supposed to be Ruth’s original. I’ve made this twice now, once Rita following Heikenfeld the recipe RITA’S KITCHEN below and once making it with 21⁄4 cups flour, 11⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, 1 ⁄2 cup oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla and no vinegar. (The vinegar is used to “sour” the milk, making it more like buttermilk). I made a thin icing to glaze it, as well. The difference between the two was slight. This is a straightforward, simple coffeecake. If you want a richer tasting one with a thicker cinnamon topping, I have my holiday overnight coffeecake on my blog.

chocolate, a bit at a time, until all is melted. If necessary, put the bowl back on the pan to help melt. If there’s any moisture on the bottom of the bowl, wipe it dry. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the extract and pour onto foil, spreading in even layer. Tap pan on counter to remove any air bubbles. Let sit at room temperature until just about set, anywhere from 15-20 minutes. When you press your finger into the chocolate a very slight indentation will remain. Put 21⁄4 cups white chocolate in clean bowl and repeat process for melting, stirring in remaining 1 ⁄2 cup chips after removing bowl from pan. Stir in

Choosing a live Christmas tree Question: If I go with a “live tree” versus a cut Christmas tree this year, what type of pine do you recommend? Answer: For planting in the landscape after the holidays, we generally recommend spruces over most pines or firs, although the Canaan Fir and DougMike lasfir (not a Klahr “true” fir) HORTICULTURE often perCONCERNS form well here. Norway Spruce is a fast grower, but Serbian Spruce and Oriental Spruce are a bit more showy. Some people like the Colorado Blue Spruce. The money usually spent on a disposable tree can be invested in a specimen that can add value to the landscape. However, care must be taken when bringing a temperate tree indoors for any length of time and then transplant-

balled-and-burlapped or potted plants. Expect to pay more for a living tree than a cut tree and realize that nurseries may be reluctant to guarantee your purchase since the tree will not be planted during the normal planting season. » Consider where the tree will be placed in the landscape. Most Christmas tree species will eventually reach a height of at least 40-60 feet, so appropriate

planning is essential. » Pick out the tree early so that a nicely shaped, vigorous plant can be chosen. But plan to keep the tree inside for no longer than seven to 10 days. In the interim, go ahead and dig a wide hole where the tree will be transplanted. Store the tree outside, keeping the roots moist. Having the hole dug ahead of time will avoid any problems of inclement weather after the holidays. » When it’s time to bring the tree indoors, the main concern is to protect the

plant from drying out. Avoid placing the tree near a fireplace, heater or warm air vent. Keeping the tree on the cool side is preferable. Place the tree in a large tub or cover the root ball in plastic to avoid spilling water on the floor. Allow water to evenly soak into the root ball by applying it as a slow stream, or simply allow ice cubes to melt into the soil ball. Don’t let the root ball sit in water. After Christmas, the tree should be planted immediately in the predug hole outside, keeping
