Garden of Giving getting underway

The Garden of Giving is gearing up for another growing season. The garden was opened recently, and volunteers planted more than 7,000 bulbs of onions and gathered and washed almost 100 eggs that could be provided to neighbors in need while also providing education in nutrition and gardening. All hands on deck will be needed on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20, for the prepping and big planting. If you know of any groups or students interested in volunteering or needing community service hours please have them call 570-460-9508. The

Garden of Giving is always in need of volunteers, especially those with tech skills to help in the office, in the garden, on the board and committees, as well as donations of skills, supplies and funding to purchase what is needed for the garden and chickens. For more information, call 570-402-1282 or email or write to Garden of Giving, 2556 Rising Hill Drive, Saylorsburg, Pa 18353 or visit Can’t make it this time?

More than 50 volunteers and 65 donors helped raise funds during the annual auxiliary auction hosted by the Auxiliary of Lehigh Valley Hospital-Pocono.

Historical Presentation

The Monroe County Historical Association will host a free presentation open to the public. Local historian Rick Smith will discuss, “The Sinking of the Lusitania” as part of the Third Thursday Lecture Series. The program will be Thursday, May 17, at 7 p.m. at the Stroud Mansion, 900 Main St., Stroudsburg. On May 7, 1915, a German submarine torpedoed and sank the RMS Lusitania, a British ocean liner traveling from New York to England. More than 1,100 crew members and passengers perished, including 120 Americans. The sinking of the Lusitania played a

significant role in turning public opinion against Germany and the incident helped provoke U.S. involvement in World War I. As part of this lecture presentation, the current exhibition titled, “Over There … America joins the fight: 100th Anniversary of WWI” will be open for viewing. This display features uniforms, military artifacts, artwork, and photographs from the Monroe County Historical Association’s museum collection. The Third Thursday Lecture Series is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. Light refreshments will be served. The presentation will be held on the second floor of the Stroud Mansion, which is not handicapaccessible. For additional information or to make a reservation, please contact the Monroe County Historical Association office at (570) 421-7703 or email at

MAY 16, 2018


One of the 17 appellations in the richly diverse Sonoma County, Russian River Valley stands out as one of the best-known. It is also one of the most verdant and lush. The region produces lots of chardonnay. Russian River Valley, or RRV as it is referred to in retailer or wine-wonk shorthand, is also fairly new, having been developed in the 1970s. Like most of the better winegrowing regions in California, RRV’s claim to quality is coolness, in its case from the intrusion of cool Pacific air through the Petaluma Gap and into the river valley, contributing to wine quality. That cool breeze lends

itself to cool-thriving wines, such as chardonnay and pinot noir. But you can find almost anything from RRV, including some outstanding zinfandel. I recently tried three RRV chardonnays, which were all okay. Some producers think they are better off using the super-appellation on bottles, thinking writing “Sonoma” will get them more attention than “Russian River Valley.” In some cases, for the typical wine buyer, they are probably right. Pat Paulsen Vineyards 2016 Sonoma County Chardonnay is sourced from several Russian River Valley vineyards. The wine is good enough, a smooth chardonnay with apple and a hint of caramel. Shrug. $14. ★★★ 1/2 Jordan nicely avoids over-oaking and other cellar trickery, dabbling in it rather than leaning on it. The result is a chardonnay for chardonnay haters. Jordan 2016 Russian River Valley Chardonnay shows character of apple and honey and a light structure and crisp finish. Designed as a supporting player to the right food, this wine is very common on restaurant wine lists and is a special order through Pennsylvania stores at $31. ★★★★ On the other extreme, massmarket Close du Bois has a formula for chardonnay lovers — oak and butter. While not as extreme as some, Clos du Bois 2015 Sonoma Reserve Russian River Valley Chardonnay has apple and citrus smells. The flavors are lemony with a hint of caramel and spice on the finish. $16. ★★★ 1/2 Chardonnay, which dominated the wine scene for decades, also can make a great gift. GRADE: Exceptional ★★★★★, Above average ★★★★, Good ★★★, Below average ★★, Poor ★.

Grease 2 large cookie sheets. Bring water with butter or margarine, sugar and salt to a full rolling boil in a large saucepan. Add flour all at once. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a thick, smooth ball that leaves a side of pan clean. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until paste is shiny and smooth. (Paste will separate as you add each egg, but it will smooth out with continued beating.) Spoon dough with a rounded teaspoonful 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets to make 30 puffs. (Measure carefully so that puffs will be the same size). Bake in preheated very hot oven 450º for 5 minutes; then lower heat to 350º and bake 20 minutes longer, until pastries are puffed, crisp and golden. Remove gently from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks. When ready to fill, split puffs, fill with coffee ice cream; press tops back in place. Stack, pyramid fashion, in a shallow serving bowl; drizzle with warm fudge sauce. Note: To hold for serving later, place filled puffs in a single layer on cookie sheets; cover, store in freezer. Let soften at room temperature before serving. Yield: 10 servings. For fudge sauce: 4 squares unsweetened chocolate 3 tablespoons butter or margarine 2/3 cup boiling water 1-2/3 cups sugar 8 tablespoons light corn syrup 1 tablespoon rum To make fudge sauce: Melt chocolate with butter in a medium-size heavy saucepan over very low heat; stir in boiling water; blend well. Add sugar and corn syrup; mixing thoroughly. Bring mixture to boiling, stirring constantly. Lower heat; simmer until mixture thickens slightly; 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes. Stir in rum; blend well. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.

which we found useful when transporting several adults with no problem. When it came to sharper corners, you’ll enjoy improved performance thanks to the upgraded strut front with gas shocks and stabilizer bar and rear torsion beam setup. The EX comes with quality Continental all-season 15-inch tires on alloy wheels and four wheel disc brakes, while the LX and S have rear drums and wheel covers. Overall, there’s a new feeling of handling confidence surprisingly similar to competing vehicles we’ve reviewed in the past like Mini Cooper and Fiat Abarth. (OK, not exactly, but still very good.) Power for all Kia models comes via a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that generates 130 horsepower and 119 lb. ft. of torque. It’s not a powerhouse by any means, but with Rio’s lighter weight, it feels fairly peppy at lower RPMs and can handle most all situations on the road. The EPA estimates are solid at 28 city and 37 highway, which is several MPG better than the 2017 model. The LX with the six speed manual is nearly identical, with one better in the city at 29 and identical 37 highway estimates. The final tally for our test Kia Rio came in at $19,595 retail thanks to a $125 cargo mat kit and $895 delivery. Check with you Kia dealer for any buyer incentives. Important numbers include a wheelbase of 101.6 inches, 2,714 lb. curb weight, 17.4 to 32.8 cu. ft of cargo space, 33.5 ft. turn circle, 5.5-inch ground clearance and an 11.9-gallon fuel tank. Consumers can feel confident that each and every Rio has most of the modern safety features, from hill start assist to all the traction controls and air bags. However, if you want to step up in both safety and amenities, drive the S or EX first. Likes: All new design, solid handling, hatchback cargo room, fair price. Dislikes: Lack of available options on LX, could use more power. (Greg Zyla is a syndicated auto columnist.)

2018 Kia Rio Hatchback Entry Price: $14,200 Price as Tested: $19,595 It’s always way more fun to review a car that is all-new, and with the delivery of this week’s test drive, the 2018 Kia Rio, the current streak stays intact. Specifically, many times in the past we receive the so-called “new year” models that don’t really change much from the prior year. The reasoning is sound, however, as manufacturers usually keep a new generation model for a duration of five years or more. Available as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback, our tester came in sharp-looking hatchback EX trim, the top-line Rio available. An entry LX trim starts at a very economical $14,200 and comes with a manual transmission, five-inch color display, AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM, USB jack, power door locks and a host of modern safety features. However, the entry-level model does not come with enhanced safety features, and still has crank windows. When you move up to the S model at $16,400, all of the powers are standard, and the safety features, like rear-view camera, are also standard. The engine and suspension are exactly the same as the mid-level S and top-line EX, both of which come with a six-speed automatic transmission, which is optional on the LX. The mid-level S trim adds some nicer interior features while the top-line EX comes standard with some extra nice amenities, including a UVO system and automatic emergency braking system, the latter something you don’t usually find on competing subcompact models. During our weeklong test, more than 300 miles were logged in all types of weather; including a five-inch snowstorm where we found the frontdrive Kia delivered outstanding traction. Out on the dry highway, the Rio rode comfortably and there’s also more rear legroom than last year
