Movie Review - “The Purge: Anarchy”

“The Purge” turned out to be quite the sleeper hit last year. The otherwise basic home invasion horror movie was masked by its cool setting: a future where once a year for twelve hours, all crime is legal. This typically translates to rich people taking to the streets to murder the poor and homeless. A splatter-fest was promised and a splatter-fest was delivered. I saw the film opening day and I have rarely seen my favorite theater so crowded. It was seriously on par with “T...

Apron Free Cooking ~ Apple Salad

Apples are usually used in fall recipes: apple pie, applesauce, and the like. Or they’re considered diet food, more flavor and crunch than calories. I agree that apples are all of those things. But since we eat them all the time, I’m trying new ways to serve them so we don’t get bored.Boring menus will be the death of appetites. I truly believe that. Think about it…remember when Monday meant meatloaf for supper, Tuesday was tacos, Wednesday was spaghetti and...

The Wine Guys: Walla Walla Valley

Walla Walla Valley AVA has a fascinating geological history. A subset of the Columbia Valley AVA of Washington State, this area was inundated by a series of catastrophic floods — the Missoula Floods — at the end of the last ice age 12,000 to 15,000 years ago. The Walla Walla Valley was scoured and then received a massive amount of gravel and fine silt that when dried and blown by the wind resulted in loess — a very fine mineral-rich soil that covers most of the valley today ...

Movie review: “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”

2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” ended with a virus enveloping the world and dooming humanity, leaving apes to inherit the earth. It also ended with audiences thrilled about the reboot of the sci-fi franchise from the 60s. Here was a project that was likely to fail; a resurrection of a silly-sounding premise with a lot of money and special effects thrown at it that we were supposed to take seriously. Tim Burton had tried to do the same thing back in 2001 and it was on...

Suspected child abuse must be reported

In Ohio, state law imposes a duty on all school officers and employees – including administrators and employees of daycare centers – to report actual or suspected child abuse or neglect. That’s why a preschool teacher at the William Patrick Day Head Start Center in Cleveland notified her supervisor when she spotted the left eye of a three-old boy in her care. The incident eventually gave rise to a case that came before us – the Ohio Supreme Court.

Slim RandlesLike a doctor removing something important, Herb Collins gently peeled the wrapper back from the root ball and tenderly placed the baby tree in the hole. Then he stood and walked around it to see which way he should align it. Actually, looks pretty good just the way it is.So he took his bucket of mixed sand and compost and began sprinkling it down onto the roots and then packing it in gently with his fist.Every few minutes he’d stop and read ...
