Native plants tend to grow better than introduced species because they have evolved here, in our area/ zone, under local growing conditions. Native plants tend to have less disease problems once established in your gardens. Most of our natives require less watering as well because – when you think about it – they were growing in the wild, depending upon nature to water them, so they are much less demanding on us.

As you can see, the list is long and there are hundreds of other species to consider. The latest plant that I have read about and should consider planting is the sumac, and it should be placed around the edges of our properties to enjoy the colorful red/orange leaves in the fall, and to feed the birds as well. The trend toward native plants is growing, and worth considering. Happy Gardening!

also go to the library and check out books that will teach you the native species. We have trees, shrubs, wildflowers and grasses from which to choose. Many of these native plants are very colorful, and will brighten any garden. It has always been a dream of mine to establish what I would call a roadside garden. This is the right time of year to take a drive and notice all the colorful plants blooming alongside the roads around us. Reds, oranges, blues, whites, yellows and purples, as well as tall plants and short plants, vines and grasses, make up the selections you will find alongside the roadways. The garden would indeed be beautiful, and I think it would astound many visitors

Entertainment Backyard Grilling: Sliding into Summer with Savory Sliders (ARA) - The backyard barbecue grilling season is in full swing and hamburgers continue to reign supreme as one of America’s favorite grilled foods. Whether you cook with gas or charcoal, nothing beats the flavor of a juicy burger right off the grill. And, whether you’re into bold flavors or basic toppings, nothing tops off a burger better than a great glass of wine. While many backyard cooks have mastered the art of grilling a full-size burger, most shy away from the smaller version known as the “slider.� Wildly popular in restaurants throughout the country, these bite-sized burgers are a snap to prepare on the grill and pair perfectly with a great tasting glass of red wine. And, by dishing out sliders, you use less meat (which helps you save) and keep your family happy. The origin of the slider is attributed to real estate and insurance agent Edgar Waldo “Billy� Ingram who teamed up with cook Walter Anderson to open the first White Castle hamburger stand in Wichita, Kan., in 1921. The restaurant served up patties of ground meat cooked on a griddle, plenty of diced onions, a pickle slice and served on a soft yeast bun. In those days, serving a burger with wine was unheard of but fortunately, those days are behind us. “The right wine works like a spice, help-

ing to enhance the flavors of your grilled food,� says Georgetta Dane, winemaker for the popular and well acclaimed Big House wines. Big House (so named because it is made near Soledad Prison in Monterey County, California) is a quirky but delicious blend of 21 Italian and French varietals such as Sangiovese, Syrah and Grenache. “It’s ripe and fruity with good structure,� says Sam Gugino, contributing editor to Wine Spectator magazine, chef, restaurateur and cookbook author. “It’s a favorite summer sipper for me and it pairs very well with burgers, steaks and lamb chops.� “Paprika is one of my favorite spices. I use just a pinch along with a tablespoon of Big House Red to really make the flavors come together,� notes Georgetta. “I serve these along with the 2008 Big House Red in the 3-liter Octavin Home Wine Bar cask. The wine pairs very well with the sliders and allows my guests to easily serve themselves. The new package guarantees freshness for at least six weeks once opened.� For summer entertaining, Georgetta’s Sliders are easy to prepare, full of flavor and a real crowd pleaser. Pair them with red wine and you have the ultimate worry-free barbecue. For more information on Big House and

Octavin Home Wine Bar wines, go to www.

Georgetta’s Sliders Serves four Ingredients: 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 pinch paprika 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck 1 tablespoon Big House Red wine 12 3-inch dinner rolls 2 yellow onions 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 bunch watercress 1 bunch radicchio Caramelized onions (saute sliced onions in olive oil slowly to caramelize)

Directions: In a medium bowl, combine onion powder, paprika, garlic, pepper, salt, wine and beef. Shape into 12 small 3-inch round, 1/2-inch thick mini-patties. Grill until browned, three to four minutes per side. Heat or grill dinner rolls tops until slightly toasted; put the bottom bun on top of the grilling onions to absorb the flavorful steam. On bottom of each roll, place the Savory Sliders pair well with Big grilled patty first, followed by the grilled House Red wine for an enjoyable onions, watercress and radicchio. Cap with the dinner roll top. meal.

Guys and girls in grades 5-9 from local schools – as well as out of state – spent part of their summer learning about science, technology, engineering and math at a series of summer camps hosted by EHOVE Career Center. The week-long, half-day camps were filled with hands-on projects and fun activities. There was something for everyone with choices from robotics or forensics, to green energy or rocketry, to computers or culinary. The guest speakers and field trips to such places as NASA and Back to the Wild were all a hit. All camps ended in a final day of sharing accomplishments with parents and a pizza party.

The dinner was held in conjunction with the association’s annual meeting at the Hilton Columbus, Easton. Fisher-Titus Medical Center nominated Schafer for this year’s Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year Award, presented by the OHA. Every Ohio hospital was invited to nominate one person for the Health Care Worker of the Year award, created in 1996 to honor a hospital em- SCHAFER ployee who demonstrates leadership, reflects the values and ideals of Ohio’s health care facilities, goes above and beyond the call of duty, gives back to the community and has overcome odds to succeed. “Jill’s passion to help those most at need continually takes her beyond her official ‘duties’ resulting in a variety of programs that have helped many people and organizations,” said Peg Baird, executive vice president of Fisher-Titus. “Through her tenure at FTMC, Jill has demonstrated her capabilities in many areas. … She is well-respected by her peers, management, medical staff, board of directors, and community members.” When Schafer – a registered nurse who also has a bachelor of science in nursing – was just a child, she was always the one trying to help family members who were sick or ailing. Little did she realize then that her instinct to help people would lead to a nursing career that would include providing compassionate care to patients in their homes, nursing homes, and hospitals, as well as educating individuals and groups on health issues and developing health and social initiatives for community members. Schafer moved from providing hands-on care in nursing homes, on the nursing floor, and in patients’ homes from 1987-1997, to a leadership position as a nurse educator and supervisor while working in home health. When a Steering Committee formed in 1999 to develop the health ministry program at Fisher-Titus, Schafer was ultimately named to lead the new program. Her method was to help interested churches understand their own needs and to match those needs with volunteers and with resources available through Fisher-Titus. Currently 43 churches are providing a variety of health and wellness programs for their congregations. Over the years, Schafer has helped teams organize screenings, secure AEDs, and develop initiatives like the Medical Information Notebooks, an innovative program that has helped 1,100 people organize their health information. Schafer’s role expanded to community relations coordinator in 2007. In that role, she developed and implemented programs focused on the health and social needs of underserved and at-risk residents in Huron County. Schafer has been an employee at Fisher-Titus since 1988. In addition to the variety of positions Schafer has held over the years, she also leads FTMC’s wellness task force; has provided diabetes outreach programs for Huron County’s Hispanic community; and actively serves on many committees in the community including the Huron County Workforce Response Team and Huron County Interagency Coalition.
