Abbott’s Mill Operates Again to Help Create Delaware Ale

For the first time in almost 50 years, the mill at Abbott’s Mill Nature Center has ground a consumable product – barley -- that is one of the key ingredients in Delaware Native Ale, a limited-time ale released by Dogfish Head Brewery on Oct. 31. “We offer ‘Running of the Mill’ demonstration days each month so that visitors can better understand what the mill was like in its heyday, in the 18th century,” says center manager Jason Beale. “But this was the first time in almost half a century that our mill roared back to life to produce grain that would be used in a food or beverage.” On a mid-September day, a team of millers that included Elliott Workman, Stephen Childers and Paul Layton ground barley at the mill, which is operated by the Delaware Nature Society and owned by the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs. Four hundred pounds of malted barley was run through the roller mill, which removed the bran and exposed the germ within. “I’ve seen the mill equipment run many times during our Running of the Mill program, but it was amazing to see the equipment actually grinding grain,” notes Beale. Other local partners on Delaware Native Ale include the University of Delaware, whose scientists isolated the wild yeast used in the ale; and Fifer Orchards, which provided peach and pear juices as well as the setting to collect the yeast. Dogfish Head has supported Abbott’s Mill Nature Center in a variety of ways. Most recently, the brewery donated empty 55-gallon barrels to the center. These barrels will be used in a “Make and Take Rain Barrel” program. “We appreciate Dogfish Head’s generosity to Abbott’s Mill Nature Center and their commitment to sustainability and community,” says Beale.

Let's Talk About Bullying

Bullying is the topic for New Castle County Libraries’ annual “Let’s Talk About” program this month. Each year, the “Let’s Talk About” series focuses on a timely and challenging issue with the goal of creating a community-wide exchange of resources, ideas and solutions. “Bullying is a serious issue that we must all work together to eradicate from our schools, workplaces, the Internet – wherever it takes place,” said County Executive Paul Clark. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of these important presentations and to do what they can to promote bully-free environments.” • “Bullying: From the Schoolyard to the Boardroom” is the first of two major presentations. Judith Vessey, a professor in the Boston College School of Nursing, will be the guest speaker Nov. 7 at 7 pm at the Brandywine Hundred Library, 1300 Foulk Road, Wilmington. Her research focuses on the effect of chronic bullying on the psychological and physical health of children and adolescents. Her more recent research includes bullying and violence in the workplace. • “An Anti-Bullying Forum: Bullying in the Digital Age” will be held November 16 at 7pm at the Woodlawn Library, 2020 W. Ninth Street, Wilmington. Panel members include Patricia Dailey Lewis, deputy attorney general in the Delaware Department of Justice and director of its Family Division; Kelly Green, a counselor at Elbert Palmer Elementary School; Christine F. Schaub, Legal Administrative Assistant Vocational Instructor at Howard High School of Technology; Tiffany Smith, a student at Howard High School of Technology; and Senior Corporal Amy Kevis of the New Castle County Police Community Policing division. • Students from the Legal Assisting Career Area at Howard High School of Technology will present the interactive program “Bullying: Stand Up! Don’t Just Stand By!” The program offers skills development through role-playing for children, teens and parents.

When the Golden Bowl Is Broken

Caring for Loved Ones Who Can No Longer Care for Themselves Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel sang a song in the ’60s called “Old Friends.” The old friends “sat on their park bench like bookends. … How terribly strange to be seventy.” Maybe seventy-, eighty-, and ninety-somethings in 1968 New York City had time to sit on park benches like bookends. Today, they consult with corporations, volunteer all over the world, teach, care for grandchildren, skydive, direct choirs, hike the Grand Canyon, hold down jobs, vote, and they wear really cool Nikes. Then, one day, they really do stop. Their strength fails. Their memory fails. They can’t keep up with the ordinary. They need you to help. You don’t know where to start. This seminar lets you know that you are not alone. It gives you practical hope and help, when you are caring for loved ones who can no longer care for themselves (and may not know it). The seminar takes place on Saturday, November 12, 9:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Please visit www.bvbcnet.org to download a registration form. -Pastor Bo Matthews

2011 Taste of Independence

“A Taste of Independence- Progressive Dinner” is a neat concept in dining, designed to introduce Delawareans to the array of highly acclaimed international restaurants of Independence Mall. “Usually a progressive dinner is one big meal that is planned to include different houses within a neighborhood,” says Celebrity Kitchens’ owner Angela Martinez. However, on Monday, November 14, 2011 at 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM, two groups of 24 diners will make their way around the dining establishments in the Independence Mall, Wilmington, Delaware, for the, “Taste of Independence – Progressive Dinner.” “What makes this night particularly fun for guests is the diversity of food found in this small Delaware shopping center. Once guests park their cars, they won’t have to leave the mall to enjoy a food and wine tasting trip which takes them to all corners of the globe,” said Martinez. Independence Mall is comprised of an array of international restaurants, dining establishments, and unique retail stores. The Mall was built to resemble Philadelphia’s historic Independence Hall; the centerpiece of the mall is The Melting Pot Restaurant, in whose entrance hallway is a replica of the Liberty Bell. The “Taste of Independence – Progressive Dinner” is an opportunity for the restaurants and retailers in the Mall to showcase what each offers. Participating eateries will make some of their special international creations for the dining enjoyment of the guests. Pre-registered guests will follow a planned itinerary, starting with a wine tasting in the boutique wine store, Ryans Wines and Spirits. To toast the start of the evening, guests will enjoy hors d’oeurves prepared by Chef/owner Steve Henretty of Henretty’s Crab Cakes. Henretty will serve up their famous crab cakes and jumbo shrimp cocktail. Progressive diners will then head to Takumi Japanese Restaurant and Rasa Sayang Malaysian Restaurant for delicious appetizers. Guests will then be off to Nirvana Fine Indian Cuisine, voted “Best Indian Restaurant” by readers of Delaware Today, for a special trio of appetizers, representing Nirvana’s best; Veggie, Chicken or Beef Tikka Kabobs. Diners will be escorted to their next destination, Celebrity Kitchens. In Celebrity Kitchens’ intimate cooking studio, the progressive diners will feast on theior second main course, Progressive dining guests will watch and some will be asked to participate in the creation of the filet mignon medallions in cognac sauce over creamy mashed potatoes. They will be entertained by the culinary talents and crowd pleasing antics of a guest chef . Wine will be provided by Ryan’s Wines to compliment the flavor of the entree. As an added bonus, guests will take home a copy of the recipes so that they can recreate the entrée again and again. After feasting at Celebrity Kitchens, progressive diners will head to their final destination, The Melting Pot, named Best of Delaware’s “Most Romantic Restaurant”. General Manager Brad Oberholzer is most certain that diners will experience the perfect finale with decadent chocolate fondue creations. Dippers inculde fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispies Treats, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies to go along with the chocolate fondue. In each of the dining locations, guests will learn about the food and wine they are consuming. They will experience an abundance of flavors which they will savor for a long time after their final stop. The cost of the progressive dining experience is $75 per person, including all five courses and wine with each course. Advance reservations for the “Taste of Independence – Progressive Dinner” are required. For information and reservations, please call Celebrity Kitchens at (302) 427-COOK (2665). All reservations are non-refundable. The progressive dinner is expected to last approximately 2 ½ hours. On Monday, November 14, 2011, two seating times are available: 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

Federal Grant to Help Delaware's Small Business Exports

Delaware successfully applied for funding through the US Small Business Administration’s State Trade and Export Promotion Grant (STEP) Pilot Grant Initiative to increase the number of small businesses in the First State that export their products and to increase the value of exports for those small businesses that are already exporting. STEP – a $90 million three-year funding initiative – aligns with President Obama’s National Export Initiative which calls for doubling U.S. exports in five years and, in so doing, supporting two million jobs.

Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows to Debut Six New AKC Breeds in Competition

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows including The National Dog Show presented by Purina® will introduce six new breeds at their annual fall cluster of Shows November 19th and 20th at the Greater Philadelphia EXPO Center in Oaks, PA. The six will be among over 160 American Kennel Club (AKC) sanctioned breeds on hand as almost 2,000 dogs compete for the prestigious title of “Best in Breed,” “Best of Group” and Best In Show.” The new breeds making their competition debut include the following: • Entlebucher Mountain Dog - These highly-energetic herding dogs are easy to train and possess an excellent work ethic. A native of Switzerland, the Entle is medium-sized, strongly muscled and generally tricolor, but can be black with tan markings. • Norwegian Lundehund is nicknamed the “Puffin Dog”, because it was originally used to hunt puffin- a kind of penguin. This loyal and playful dog makes an ideal, easy-to-live-with companion. It is a member of the Non-Sporting Group. • Xoloitzcuintli (pronounced show-low-eats-queen-tlee) is one of the world’s oldest breeds and is said to be the first canine of the Americas. Central American and Mexican lore is that the Xolo is able to ward off evil spirits and intruders. The breed comes in three sizes- toy, miniature, and standard - and makes an excellent companion. The Xolo is a member of theNon-Sporting Group. • American English Coonhound is a descendant of the English Foxhound. Bred to adapt to rougher terrain, this member of the Hound Group was typically used for fox and raccoon hunting. Renowned for his speed and endurance, the breed requires regular exercise and activity to stay in peak shape. These Coonhounds are pleasant and sociable with both humans and dogs. • Cesky Terrier is one of the Czech Republic’s national breeds. A less excitable breed of terrier, the Cesky was developed to be worked in packs and has traditionally been used in small game hunting. Sporting a silky charcoal coat, the Cesky requires moderate grooming. These active terriers require constant exercise and socialization. • Finnish Lapphund is native to the Arctic Circle and was originally used for reindeer herding. The Lappie has a sweet, expressive face which is constantly likened to that of a teddy bear. Its double coat makes it intolerant of heat. This friendly, sociable breed makes an excellent companion. The Lapphund is a member of the Herding Group. The Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows run November 19 & 20 and include the taping for the broadcast of The National Dog Show presented by Purina® on NBC Thanksgiving Day to over 18 million viewers. Plan to bring the children! Get up close to the breeds and speak with their handlers. See Diving Dogs and Go Dog performances each day plus the MetroKids® Family Fun Zone showcases fun festivities that will make the weekend one to remember. Watch the Shows in person at the Greater Philadelphia EXPO Center at Oaks, located just off the Oaks exit of Route 22, 20 miles from Center City Philadelphia and just five miles from King of Prussia and Valley Forge. There’s plenty of free parking. Tickets can be purchased online at nationaldogshow.com. Save some cash and experience all of the fur-raising fun twice with the two-day adult pass, which shaves $8 off regular two- day admissions. A one-day child ticket costs only $7, half of a one-day adult ticket. Plus, children 3 and under are admitted free. This year, add 2,000 new best friends to your circle at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dogs Shows! Visit nationaldogshow.com for more details.

Launch of New Delaware Business Promotes First State Pride

Are you a proud Delawarean? Whether you were born here, recently relocated or have chosen to attend one of our great First State colleges or Universities, a new online business launching this weekend offers you a variety of ways to publicly display your pride over living in the 302. Delaware302.com is an online store filled with products that incorporate the State’s area code as a way to promote First State pride. These products include 302 T-shirts for men and 302 Girl T-shirts for ladies, 302 oval stickers and magnets to display your pride vehicles, and special wristbands. The business, launching just in time for the holiday season, is the brainchild of Sussex County residents Phil Wojcik and Andrea Summers. After seeing his friend’s 302 tattoo which was set against the state’s background, Wojcik realized that there was a market for people, like his friend, who wanted to “represent” the First State. However, both Wojcik and Summers believe that you don’t have to be born here to show your Delaware pride. “While I was born in Wilmington, and attended high school at Salesianum, my education and career took me from this great state for many years. I was extremely happy for the opportunity to return home. Andrea moved here 17 years ago from Maryland, and together we have fallen in love with our life here and wanted a way to share that in a way that anyone and everyone we come in contact with can see,” said Wojcik. “Delaware302.com is offering us the vehicle for not only us but for hundreds of thousands of other First State residents to do that.” Wojcik said while they’re starting with a small selection of items, they have plans to roll out new designs and new items every 1 – 2 months. Wojcik used his computer programming background to design the website and online store, and Summers her public information background to market the site primarily via social media platforms Facebook and Twitter. “We’re going to share unique and interesting fun facts about Delaware on these sites and want people to start sharing with us why they love Delaware,” said Summers. “We truly want to start a conversation with individuals about why this is such an amazing State in which to live.” In an effort to promote the Facebook page and website, Summers said they’ve also launched a contest to win a Delaware302 prize pack. People can enter by sharing why they are Delaware proud and love living in the 302, and the contest will allow voting American Idol style for the best answer. Delaware302’s owners also believe in philanthropy but more specifically giving to the local community. A portion of sales each month will be donated to the charity of their choice. The duo’s top picks are the Delaware Food Bank at which Wojcik has volunteered and the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, which supported Summer’s step sister during her battle with the disease. Delaware302 products make great gifts for the holidays. Visit Delaware302’s online store at www.Delaware302.com , friend us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DE302 or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/Delaware_302 .

Fuzzy slippers. A golf ball cleaner. A hot dog cooker. Yet another tie. These are a just a few of the gifts that have been posted on a website devoted to “unwanted holiday gifts.” This season, make sure your holiday purchases don’t end up on such a website.

Here’s just some of what your gift recipients will receive with their DNS membership: • Special pricing for DNS programs and events. • Members-only days at the DNS Native Plant Sale. • Free admission to Farm Fun Days at Coverdale Farm. • Free admission to trails at Ashland and Abbott’s Mill Nature Centers. • Reciprocal admission to select zoos, such as the New York State Zoo and nature centers, including Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Pennsylvania. • Discounts at retail partners: Everything But the Kitchen Sink, Gateway Garden Center, Wild Birds Unlimited, Quest Fitness & Kayak, East Coast Garden Center and Wild About Birds.

If you buy a new Delaware Nature Society membership before Dec. 1, your gift recipient will receive 15 months of membership for the price of 12. DNS membership prices start at $30 for seniors and college students, $40 for individuals and $55 for families. Is your friend or relative already a DNS member?

About Multiple Sclerosis Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with the disease. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.1 million worldwide. About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society The Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS. To fulfill this mission, the Society funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides programs and services designed to help people living with MS and their families move forward with their lives. In 2010 alone, through its national office and 50-state network of chapters, the Society devoted $159 million to its programs and services that assisted more than one million people. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $37 million to support 325 new and ongoing research projects around the world. The Society is dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. Join the movement at nationalMSsociety.org.

Dana Herbert, who won the TLC reality show “Next Great Baker” in January, will be a special guest at the 48th Annual Wilmington Jaycees Christmas Parade this Saturday starting at 3 pm in downtown Wilmington. The Parade, which has traditionally been held on Black Friday, has moved to Saturday afternoon to tie into “Small Business Saturday” which encourages shoppers to buy local and to partner with events at The Grand including the debut of a new light extravaganza. The Parade will start at 3 pm this year and will kick off at 5th and Market Street. It will proceed up Market and stop briefly at the Grandstand which will be located at 10th Street, and then end at 11th and Market.

This annual event is designed to bring the community together and to promote economic development in downtown Wilmington. It serves as the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. “The Wilmington Jaycees are excited about bringing people downtown on Saturday for this year’s parade,” said Parade Director Mark A.

There will be military, police, and fire units along with community groups who dance, sing, cheer, and march. Three large helium balloons are returning to the parade. Popular TV and movie stars Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Elmo, Mickey Mouse, Shrek, Cat & the Hat, and Sulley from Monsters Inc. will be on hand as will floats and antique cars. Of course, the star of the show will continue to be Santa Claus. Children at the parade are encouraged to write a letter to Santa and have it collected by Santa’s helpers who walk the parade route. (Children should provide their address if they would like a reply.) The Wilmington Jaycees will work with Santa and his elves to make every effort to answer each letter. Dana Herbert is a 1998 graduate of the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management.
