COMMUNITY JOURNAL

YSU students awarded first NEXUS grants

A

new grant program in Youngstown State University’s College of Creative Arts and Communication to encourage students across all of the college’s disciplines to engage in innovative research and creative projects has presented its first awards. “This is a very important grant program for the college, and it allows us to capitalize on the fact that disciplines in the creative and communication arts are housed in one building,” said Bryan DePoy, CCAC dean.

“Students and faculty have reacted very positively, and we’re hopeful that it can possibly serve as a model for the creation of similar activities in the colleges across campus.” The grant program, called NEXUS, was created this fall to foster collaboration among students in the four disciplines in CCAC – music, art, theater/dance and communication. Students can receive awards of up to $750 each. Proposals must include students representing at least two departments in the college. Eight student proposals were submitted, a faculty committee recommended four and DePoy announced the four winners earlier this month at a ceremony in Bliss Gallery attended by about 50 students and faculty. “It’s really about nurturing the creative entrepreneurialism in our college,” DePoy said. “Prospective employers will certainly appreciate the fact that our students value collaboration and problem-solve in a variety of spectra.” The winning proposals:

◆ “Mad Hatters Tea Party,” by Lisa Perry (Art) and Logan Mueller-Jonas (Music), $750, is an exhibit featuring an Alice in Wonderland theme and music. ◆ “Explore the Arts Program,” by Molly Lukehart (Theater), Katie Jerome (Musical Theater), Justin Brown (Musical Theater), Sarah Duffy Hentosh (Communication) and Hallie Tolley (Art), $750, brings 18 Youngstown city seventh-graders to Bliss Hall two Saturdays a month to learn about theater, art and communications. ◆ “Tribunal Documentary,” by Catena Cane (Communication) and Amber Palmer (Theater), $750, is a short film about Tribunal, a play written by YSU graduate Mark Milo Kessler that made its premiere at YSU earlier this fall. ◆ “Chopin’s Mazurkas” by Kathleen Gal-

BBB advises consumers to carefully plan shopping

W

ith Black Friday and Cyber Monday here, the Better Business Bureau advises consumers to plan carefully plan before shopping this holiday season. Before filling up stockings, develop a budget and stick to it. Use ClearPoint’s holiday planning calculator http://www. bbb.org/holidays to see how much you should be spending on gifts this year. The calculator even allows you to list each gift you plan to purchase and account for food, travel, and other expenses.

For Black Friday Shoppers: Compare deals. There are many Black

Friday websites claiming to capture the best deals around. Comparative price shopping online, before you buy set out for the mall, can help make your Black Friday shopping more efficient. Maximize advance alerts. Do you have favorite retailers? Sign up for their email alerts and take advantage of special social network opportunities. Many stores work to reward your loyalty and you may get a jump on special offers. Know Store Return Policies. Knowing the store policies on returns can help you

decide where to buy. Retailers may include restocking fees, shorter return deadlines and other terms and conditions. Also, be sure you understand the return policy on seasonal and sale items. Ask for gift receipts. Gift receipts generally include a description of the item purchased, but do not disclose the price paid. Without proof-of-purchase, the recipient may be turned down for returning or exchanging the item or risk receiving an exchange at a lower price. Online shopping tips for Cyber Monday: Protect your personal information. Take time to read the site’s privacy policy and understand what personal information is being requested and how it will be used. If there isn’t one posted, it should be taken as a red flag that personal information may be sold to others without permission. Shop safely online. Online deals dominate on Cyber Monday. Whether you’re shopping on this day or any other day, be sure your computer has the most recent updates for spam filters, anti-virus and anti-spyware software. Only shop on trusted websites, look for the BBB seal as well as the Ad Choices logo for sites that give you more control over whether advertisers can use your information for targeted advertising. Confirm that your online purchase is secure. Shoppers should always look in

Monthly column on wine: Page 11

the address box for the “s” in https:// and in the lower-right corner for the “lock” symbol before paying. If there are any doubts about a site, right-click anywhere on the page and select “Properties.” This should let you see the actual URL (website address) and the dialog box will reveal whether the site is not encrypted. Pay with a credit card. Using a credit card is suggested because the shopper can dispute the charges if he/she doesn’t receive the item. Shoppers also have dispute rights if there are unauthorized charges on their credit card, and some card issuers have “zero liability” policies under which the card holder pays nothing if someone steals the credit card number and uses it. Check terms and conditions with your cardholder. Keep documentation of your order. After completing the online order process, there may be a final confirmation page or the shopper might receive confirmation by e-mail. BBB recommends saving a copy of the Web page and any e-mails for future reference and as a record of the purchase. Know your rights. Whether shopping retail or online, know your rights. According to the FTC, orders made by mail, phone, fax, or online should be shipped by the date promised or, if no delivery time was stated, within 30 days. If the goods cannot be shipped on time, the shopper must be notified of the right to cancel and receive a refund. Consumers also have the right to reject merchandise if it’s defective or misrepresented. Otherwise, it’s the company’s policies that determine if the shopper can cancel the purchase and receive a refund or credit, so be sure you understand return policies before you buy. Whether shopping in person or online, check with BBB for our rating on the business. Go to youngstown.bbb.org or call 330-744-3111.

RESTAURANTS & DINING

HOMEPLATE HOMESTYLE It’s holiday cookie time at “Homeplate!” Page 14-15

Wine Guy travels to Cleveland for Italian portfolio wines November is traditionally the beginning of the holiday season, and that means wine buying is ramped up for parties and family get-togethers. I’ve found a number of great wines at affordable prices for you. On Nov. 5, I traveled to LockKeepers Restaurant in Valley View, Ohio for Cutting Edge Selections’ Italian portfolio show. Cutting Edge distributors has one of the finest selections of Italian wines to be The found in Ohio, and Wine this tasting showed all Guy their strengths. (The John Webster wines listed here can found or ordered at nearly any wine shop in your neighborhood.) I started off with a sample of Elio Perrone 2012 Sourgal Moscato d’Asti ($19.99).

Perrone produces one of the finest examples of Moscato d’Asti available. Crisp, clean citrus and stone fruit flavors move along to a floral, mineraltinged finish that is just plain outstanding for a wine in this price range. My next white wine was a glass of 2011 Abbazia di Novacella Gewurztraminer

from the south Tyrol region of northern Italy. Lush, opulent stone fruit flavors and a textbook spicy finish make it hard to stop at just one glass. If you’re looking for a wine gift for someone who is tired of cookie-cutter formula Chardonnays, pick up a bottle of Sergio Mottura’s Latour a Citivella Grechetto IGT

($29.99). Tight, stony citrus flavors and a long complex finish tinged with herbs will have you wishing you bought more. This unique Italian white will be a wonderful addition to your wine collection. A red that really stood out was the 2010 Masseria Setteporte Etna Rosso DOC

($22.99) from Sicily. Smooth, dark fruit flavors and a long complex finish make this stylish red a joy to taste. Rib roast or grilled chicken would be a fine match. Thanks to Cutting Edge Selections and LockKeepers Restaurant for a wonderful wine and food event. On Nov. 9, I attended the annual Angels for Animals benefit wine taste at their facility in Canfield. This is always a fun

nicely with the citrus-marinated halibut. A fall frisee (shredded) salad was served for our second course. Rodney Strong’s 2011 Chalk Hill Chardonnay was poured to go along with this light, tasty salad. Tangy apple and citrus flavors from this wine worked nicely with the butternut squash chips and blue cheese sprinkled on the curly endive salad. Our first red wine was Rodney Strong’s 2011 Russian River Pinot Noir. Cote ELECTRONIC IMAGE BY JOHN WEBSTER FOR METRO MONTHLY.

event at which to see old friends and readers support a great cause. Sixteen wines from around the world and several craft beers from Akron’s Thirsty Dog Brewery were being served to accompany the delicious food from the Angels’ kitchen. I started the evening with a glass of Thirsty Dog Raspberry Ale and a plate of zucchini fries. Crisp yet smooth flavors and a hint of raspberry on the finish made this a great combination with the fries. A red wine that really stood out was the 2012 Campo Viejo Garnacha (Grenache) from Spain. Smooth raspberry and cherry flavors with a spicy floral note on the finish made this $12 bargain a great partner for the scrumptious sausagestuffed mini peppers. If you’re looking for a tasty dessert wine for the holidays, try the Winery of Versailles (pronounced Schokoladenkirschwein shoke-o-laden-kersh-wine), meaning “chocolate cherry wine.” This grape wine with cherries and chocolate added was simply wonderful with the Brix and Philadelphia Chocolates on the dessert table. Thanks to Diane Less and her band of “angels” for a great evening of food and wine. On Nov. 19, I attended the Springfield Grille’s monthly dinner taste. This month, they featured wines from California’s Rodney Strong Wine Estate. I’ve always admired this producer’s wines, and was happy to learn that their District Manager Liz Hammer would be there to lead our group through each wine selection.

de Beaune in style 2011 Russian with lively crushed River Pinot Noir berry flavors, it was fabulous with the Grille’s walnutencrusted chicken drizzled with pomegranate sauce. This affordable Pinot ($23) should be on everyone’s holiday buying list. Braised oxtail with Vidalia onions over roasted garlic risotto was served for our main course. Rodney Strong’s Rich 2012 Charlotte’s and Bold 2011 Cab- Home Sauvignon ernet Sauvignon Blanc

RICHARD ‘CHOOKIE’ ALBERINI JR.

This family-owned winery is on a roll, with being named American Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast magazine, and having their 2010 Rockaway Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley score 94 points in Wine Spectator magazine. Our first course of halibut with bok choy and pear slaw was paired to Rodney Strong’s 2012 “Charlotte’s Home” Sauvignon Blanc

from Sonoma County. While inexpensive ($12), this is Sauvignon Blanc at its best. Crisp citrus and pear flavors worked very

from the Alexander Valley was chosen to go with this hearty dish. Lush plum and red fruit flavors give way to a long finish tinged with spicy vanilla. This nearperfect union of food and wine was a crowd favorite. Our final wine 2012 Campo Viejo of the evening was Garnacha the 2010 Symmetry Red Meritage from Alexander Valley, Calif.

Leo’s expert kitchen and staff provided a delicious buffet dinner for everyone attending. A silent and a Chinese auction with a 50-50 raffle raised more than $86,000. This benefit was one of the best-run events that I have attended in my time as the Metro Monthly Wine Guy. I’d like to congratulate Leo’s Ristorante and the benefit’s organizers (see photo) for a great evening. At our local store tastings, I found a couple of nice wines that won’t rock your holiday budget. At Warren’s Michael Charles Premier Wines, they were also featuring Rodney Strong’s stable of wines. Strong’s 2009 Alexander Valley Merlot ($17.99 on sale) provides rich, mouth-filling plum and berry fruit flavors leading to a creamy berry-tinged finish. Try this well-priced Merlot with roast duck at the holidays with your family and friends. At Vintage Estate Wine and Beer in Boardman, they were pouring samples of the 2009 Heavyweight Zinfandel ($11) from Lodi, Calif. This nicely balanced blend of Zinfandel (89 percent) Barbera (7 percent), and Petite Sirah (4 percent) offers full-bodied red fruit and berry flavors leading to a long, spice-tinged finish. Upcoming wine events include Michael Charles Beer and Wine in Warren Holiday Taste Friday. Dec. 6, at the Youngstown Country Club. Dinner tastes at the Springfield Grille will resume in January. Regularly scheduled tastings include Upstairs Restaurant’s Wine Down, third Thursday tasting; Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, every Saturday; Wine Styles, every other week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; and Michael Charles Premier Wines (Elm Road), second Saturday tasting. If your restaurant, shop or charity event is having an upcoming wine tasting, please email me a month in advance at jmwineguy@gmail.com. The best of the holidays to you!

1

cup vegetable oil

1

cup granulated sugar

6

eggs at room temperature

1

teaspoon baking powder

3

cups flour

1

tablespoon vanilla extract

2

tablespoons anise oil

1 ½ ½ 1 1 1 4½ 4 ½

cup sugar cup shortening cup butter room temperature egg teaspoon vanilla cup milk cups all-purpose flour teaspoon baking powder teaspoon salt

½

cup butter

3

cups miniature marshmallows

½

teaspoon almond extract

½

teaspoon vanilla extract

1

teaspoon green food coloring

1

4

cups cornflakes Red Hots candies or glitter gel

1

cup butter at room temperature

¼

cup blanched, ground almonds cups all-purpose flour

1 ¼

teaspoon grated orange or lemon peel sugar teaspoon salt egg yolks

Mix eggs in a large bowl, then mix in oil. Once combined, add sugar and mix. Add vanilla extract and anise oil and mix. Gradually sift in baking powder and flour, and blend until batter is smooth, glossy and a spoon almost stands up in it. Make sure your batter isn’t too runny, as it will spill out of the iron. Working with a preheated pizzelle iron, drop one teaspoonful of the batter onto the center of each side, squeeze the iron closed and lock. Cook for one minute. Use a fork to remove the cookies from the iron, and cool flat on a paper towel lined baking sheet Repeat until all batter is used up. Let cool, stack and keep in an airtight container to retain crispness.

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cream sugar, butter and shortening. Add egg and vanilla; combine. Add remaining ingredients, alternating between flour mixture and milk. On a floured surface, divide dough into four even pieces, wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. For filling, finely chop nuts and combine with sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Add egg whites. On a floured surface, roll a piece of the dough into a 12-14” circle. Spread an even layer of nut mixture onto dough. Use a pizza knife to cut into 12-14 pieces. Starting at the wide end of each triangle, roll each piece toward the pointed end. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on racks. For icing, mix powdered sugar, vanilla, cinnamon (optional) and milk to desired consistency and frost the cooled cookies. Yields 4 dozen.

Melt butter in a large pan; add marshmallows. Stir mixture until all the marshmallows are melted. Add extracts and red or green food coloring, stir until you achieve the desired color. When the mixture is smooth, add cornflakes. Mix well, but be gentle so you do not crush the cornflakes. Form into 3’’ wreath shapes (or place into the holiday cookie cutters of your choice) on sheets of waxed paper. If using cookie cutter, spray them with non-stick spray and push them out of the design. Decorate with Red Hots cinnamon candies or glitter gel. Let the cookies cool. This is a fun family project. An adult should handle working the mixture on the stove, but children can help with the cookie shaping and decoration. Yields 12 no-bake cookies.

In a large bowl, cream butter until fluffy. Mix flour, sugar and salt. Alternately beat 1 egg yolk and 1/6 flour mixture into butter. Continue until all ingredients are well combined. Stir in orange peel and almonds and mix well. Roll or pat dough to fit a greased 15” by 10” by 1” jellyroll pan. Preheat oven to 325. Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes or till golden, but not browned. Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Cut into fourths and place on cooling rack. After cookies have cooled, cut into 2-inch squares. Yields about 3 dozen cookies.
