North Jackson plant plans $14 million expansion

M

ahoning County Commissioners at press time in late June were expected to approve a tax abatement that will pave the way for a $14 million expansion by Extrudex Aluminum, 12051 Mahoning Ave., North Jackson, that will create 25 jobs in three years.

Work on the 80,000-square-foot expansion is expected to begin in July and be completed by May 2012. This is Extrudex’s second expansion in North Jackson. The company, which employs about 110 workers, is currently expanding its office area. Extrudex, based in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada, provides high-quality custom aluminum extrusions for many industries including industrial and residential architecture, transportation, consumer, electrical and marine. The Jackson Township Community Reinvestment Area Housing Council reviewed the company’s application in mid-June for a property tax abatement and approved a 60-percent abatement for a period of 10 years. According to Thomas J. Presby, Jackson Township CRA Housing Officer for Mahoning County, the requested size and term of the abatement falls in line with the county’s formula for scoring tax abatements based on the new level of investment and jobs created. The tax abatement covers the new expansion area only.

Diocese closing Catholic school in Newton Falls

S

aints Mary and Joseph School in Newton Falls will close at the end of the 2010-11 school year. Declining enrollment in the school for the past several years and the increasing debt of the parish to support the operations of the school were major factors in this decision. Parents were informed of the decision this week. Ten years ago, the enrollment for the 2000-2001 school year was 207 students. During the 2010-11 school year enrollment was 59 students. Fewer than 50 students enrolled for next year. The debt of the parish is currently in excess of $250,000. Saint Mary and Joseph School, located at the corner of Maple Drive and Milton Boulevard, was established in 1951 and staffed by the Sisters of Holy Family of Nazareth. The current building was built in 1966 and named Catholic Elementary School.

Local store tastings, special events take heat off summer

W

hile local wine events traditionally drop off for the summer beginning in June, our Wine and Dine Ohio tasting group and Five Points Wine and Bar provided several wine events for local aficionados to enjoy, along with the regular store tastings. On May 25, Wine and Dine Ohio held a dinner taste at Rachel’s Restaurant in Austintown. Rachel’s owner Les Horvath and his staff prepared a fantastic menu of food entrees to pair with our classic list of French wines. Our first wine was the Monmousseau Brut Etoile (non-vintage) sparkler from the Loire region of France. Light golden in color and made from mostly Chenin Blanc, it offers frothy upfront flavors of apple and pear with finishing notes of fig and crushed almond. The seafood linguine with lobster, shrimp and scallops was a handsdown favorite for the crisp Brut Etoile. The next wine poured was the 2009 Domaine Begude Sauvignon Blanc from the Limoux region of France, in the Pyrenees foothills. Family owned, the Domaine produces a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, with laser-like citrus flavors and a taut finish. Rachel’s pairing of haddock Florentine drizzled in a lemon wine sauce proved to be very satisfying with this wine. Burgundy, France was our next region to visit. The 2008 Pierre Andre Bourgogne Blanc ($15.99) was exquisite with the Louisiana blackened chicken set atop cappellini (angel hair) pasta. Textbook citrus and peach flavors followed by a long, clean finish make you think you are sampling a much more expensive white Burgundy – it reminds me of a Premier Cru White Burgundy that starts at $40 a bottle, so this is a real bargain. Our first red wine originates in the town of Chinon, on France’s Loire River. The 100 percent Cabernet Franc 2008 “Justin” Monmosseau Chinon offers subtle red currant flavors tinged with hints of autumn leaves and tobacco. This cool-climate Cabernet Franc was delicious with the honey-glazed bourbon salmon. Bordeaux, France was the home of our next wine choice. The 2007 Lamothe Vincent Intense ($14.99) is a classic Bordeaux blend with dark red fruit flavors and a long finish highlighted with round sweet tannins. With aging potential of up to 10 years, this tasty red is a great introduction to one of the world’s most expensive wine regions. Those who ordered the strip steak smothered in Portobellos and gorgonzola cheese raved about this classic pairing. My Wine and Dine Ohio partner Jim Howe and I would like to thank Les Horvath and his fine staff for a great evening of food and wine. We are looking forward to holding another event at Rachel’s later this year. On June 16, Wine and Dine Ohio returned to Alberini’s Restaurant in Niles. For a change of pace, we featured the wines from a single winery, California’s Ortman Family Vineyards. Owner Chuck Ortman (“Mr. Chardonnay” in California wine circles) has a long, rich history of making some of California’s finest wines. We jumped at the chance to pair with him and present his wines to our appreciative group. We started off with the 2007 Edna Valley Chardonnay ($24.99). This cool-climate Chardonnay delivers crisp apple

Lighter summer-style wines were featured in this month’s tasting at Five Points Wine and Bar. ordered the fire-grilled ribeye raved about this fine pairing. Jim Howe and I would like to thank Chookie Alberini and Ortman Vineyards for a great evening of wine and food appreciation. If you haven’t been to a Five Points Wine and Bar tasting recently, you are really missing a great food and wine experience. The food offered at their events is simply fantastic. At last month’s tasting, I sampled creamed lobster on toast, spicy salmon cakes, pesto Italian chicken, shrimp-wrapped phyllo cups, with bountiful trays of sliced vegetables, imported cheeses, and tasty desserts. Lighter summer-style wines were featured in this month’s tasting. Four wine distributors brought 12 different wines from around the world to go with the delicious food Five Points prepared. My first sample was New Zealand’s

James Wildermuth of 55 Degrees wine distributors presents a bottle of Monmousseau featured at the Rachel’s wine taste. and citrus flavors tinged with butterscotch. The bone-in pork chop with apple demi-glaze was a match made in heaven for this fine Edna Valley Chardonnay. Our next wine was Ortman’s “02 Series” Chardonnay ($14.99) from California’s central coast. Smooth citrusy peach flavors and an ultra-crisp finish had many thinking they were sampling a much more expensive French Chablis. The pan-seared sea scallops were a natural choice for this refreshing wine selection. The first red was the 2006 Ortman Fiddlestix Vineyard Pinot Noir. Most Pinot Noir from this fine vineyard ends up in bottlings costing $45 and up. We were very happy to be able to get it for our group at just $24.99 a bottle (originally $44.99). Black cherry fruit flavors and a finish marked with traces of cola and spice made this a fine pairing for the glazed salmon and red potatoes. If you’re looking for great Pinot Noir at more than a fair price, you can order it through Alberini’s or enjoy a bottle while you’re there. The 2007 Ortman 02 Series Cuvee Eddy was our next selection. A tasty blend of Syrah (42 percent), Grenache (30 percent), Mourvedre (17 percent) and Petite Sirah (9 percent), this Silver Medal-winning wine will remind you of a classic Rhone red from France. Bright strawberry and cherry flavors are complemented by a satisfying finish tinged with pepper and spice. Alberini’s classic Eggplant Parmigiana was a real treat with this juicy red. Our last red was the 2005 Ortman Syrah ($17.99, reduced from $34.99) from the Paso Robles region of California. Bright dark fruit flavors and a long white pepper-scented finish make you think you are sampling a fine Cote Rotie from France’s Rhone region. Those who

flavors were followed by a crisp finish tinged with herbs and hay. The creamed lobster on toast was just the answer for this award-winning New Zealand white. If you’re looking for a value-priced Chardonnay for summer dining, give the 2009 Con-

cannon Vineyards Central Coast Chardonnay a try ($10.99). Crisp citrus flavors and a lightly oaked finish was just the answer for Five Points’ spicy salmon cakes. My first red pick was the Project Paso ($11.99) red blend from Paso Robles, California. This mostly Grenache and Zinfandel blend with a touch of Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Barbera, Lagrein, Tempranillo, and Sangiovese thrown in was my choice for the pesto Italian chicken. Supple red fruit flavors and a smooth lingering finish make this a great wine for summer fare hot off the grill. If you’re hankering for a reasonably priced California red that will go nicely with a variety of dishes, give the 2008 Stelzner Claret ($17.99) from Napa Valley a try. Medium to full-bodied with lush red fruit flavors, it finishes nicely with a touch of spicy oak. Coming from pricy Napa Valley fruit, this is a real treat of a wine. The first store tasting I attended in June was the Michael Charles Premier Wines Second Saturday taste. My first pick was the 2009 Finca el Raposo Bonardo ($10.99) from Mendoza, Argentina. The Bonardo grape originates in northern Italy, but has found a home in Argentina, just as the Zinfandel (Primitivo) grape from southern Italy has found a home in California. Fermented mostly in stainless steel, it projects bright red berry flavors and finishes smooth and velvety. My next pick comes from central Victoria, Australia. The Four Sisters Shiraz ($14.99) gives up lush black raspberry flavors followed by a long finish tinged with smoke and spice. Lollipop lamb chops would be a great choice for this tasty Aussie red. Wine Styles of Howland had two fine Shirazes that really stood out. At $10.99, the 2007 Ol’ Geezer from South Africa is a fantastic bar-

RE STAU RAN TS

The

Wine Guy By John Webster gain. Spicy rich red fruit flavors and a peppertinged finish make this a fine choice for burgers and brats off the grill. Padthaway, Australia is the home base for the 2009 Morse Code Shiraz ($12.99). Fruit driven with a typical Australian Shiraz finish of white pepper and crushed berries, this would be a nice partner for roasted chicken. At Vintage Estate Wine and Beer’s third Saturday wine taste, the first choice was the 2009 “The Other” white blend from Peirano Estate Vineyards ($12.99). Peirano Vineyards is a great source of fine value wines that are unique and very tasty. “The Other” is a cuvee of Chardonnay (65 percent), Sauvignon Blanc (25 percent), and Viognier (10 percent), producing lush flavors of ripe pear and tropical fruit. Jumbo shrimp drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with black pepper would be interesting with this juicy white. The 2010 Ricossa Casurzo DOC from Italy was my next choice. Soft and effervescent with only 5 percent alcohol, this is just the answer for chocolate desserts. Made from 100 percent Malvasia red grapes, it finishes long with crisp honey notes. Charlie’s Fine Wines of Howland had a series of tastings that proved to be very entertaining. A real standout was the 2008 Shannon Ranch Barbera ($24.99) from Lake County, California. Lush red fruit flavors and a long textbook finish make this a red that should be in everyone’s cellar. If you’re looking for an outstanding Barolo from the Piedmont region of Italy that won’t damage your checkbook, pick up a bottle of the 2004 Cancello de Barone Reserve Barolo DOC. At $39.99, this is a steal from its usual price of $70-80. This is classic Barolo at its best. Made in the old-fashioned style, it should age comfortably for 15 or more years. Scented with violets and road tar, it produces lush red fruit flavors that defy the imagination. Upcoming events include Wine and Dine Ohio’s two-day wine event in conjunction with Selah’s Restaurant in downtown Struthers, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 26 and Thursday, July 28. This will be a real departure from your regular wine tasting, thanks to the great plans that Selah’s has in store, and it will surely sell out early. To make a reservation or get on our email list for Wine and Dine Ohio event information, call 330-651-8676, or email jmwineguy@gmail.com to provide your contact information. The Springfield Grille in Boardman and Five Points Wine and Bar will hold their monthly wine tastes – call those locations for more details. Other regular tastings include 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 on Elm Road, second Saturday tasting. I look forward to seeing you at wine events around the Valley.

TWO OUT OF THREE. The three things that most customers want in their purchases are...

Quality, Service and Price Unfortunately, many of these same customers actually believe that they can receive all three from a single purchase. Nothing can be further from the truth. Every company can deliver ONE of the three, some can offer TWO, but no company can offer all THREE. If you balk at what you perceive to be a high price, remind yourself of this fact by asking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you rather the service or the quality be sacrificed so that the price is lower?

You will later be able to take the ribs directly from the refrigerator to the oven for roasting.)

â&#x20AC;˘ Add cabbage and the walnuts â&#x20AC;˘ Toss everything together until coated.

â&#x20AC;˘ Let the ribs sit in the fridge overnight.

OVEN PHASE HOW TO MAKE IT

â&#x20AC;˘ Add chopped onions and sliced apples (cut apple slices in half,)

â&#x20AC;˘ Place the wrapped ribs into an oven set to 275 degrees. Bake for 2 1/2 hours. â&#x20AC;˘ Reduce temperature to 225 degrees. Cook for another 2 to 3 hours for ribs that fall off the bone. For the barbecue glazing, you can use your favorite barbecue sauce. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also like to recommend an Asian-style glazing. Mix a Teriyaki bean sauce with equal parts barbecue sauce. This Asian-style barbecue is delicious and can be garnished with scallions and sesame seeds for a fine contrast.

Be sure to watch us on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homeplate Homestyleâ&#x20AC;? where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share our favorite recipes each week. See you next time in our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homeplate kitchen. Bye now! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mitch Lynch

â&#x20AC;˘ Cover and chill for 1-2 hours before serving to allow flavors to meld.

COLESLAW WITH APPLES RECIPE BY HELGA WENGLER Summer is the time for relaxed, informal meals. This coleslaw salad is easy to make and goes great with foods off the grill. You can grate the cabbage
