<p>- We're Less Than Two Weeks Away From Valentine's Day, Which Means Local Florists And Candy Shops Are Ramping Up Business.

– We’re less than two weeks away from Valentine’s Day, which means local florists and candy shops are ramping up business. Gina Bullard found one chocolate company who’s Made in Vermont chocolates stand out. David and Angela Emerson believe chocolate is the answer, no matter the question. The couple own Amarah’s Chocolate Company in Williston. “We’ve been here 14 years,” David Emerson said. The Emerson’s use a blend of three different kinds of Swiss chocolate, leaving what they say is a pallet-penetrating effect. It’s soft, easy to bite through, and melts immediately in your mouth. Other chocolates often have more of a snap when you eat them and a pallet cleansing effect. The taste of Amarah’s chocolate lingers in your mouth. “We like to think it’s the Swiss chocolate that we use, the creativity we have for making new and different thing,” Emerson said. The Emerson’s know about doing things differently. “We had worked for others for a very long time and decided we wanted to be entrepreneurs and work for ourselves.” David worked in hotel and motel management so the couple thought about opening a B&B, but decided they didn’t want a 24-7 gig. After working at a chocolate company they settled on dipping the fruits of their labor in chocolate. There are no shortcuts in this shop. Everything is done by hand. Even foiling each and every chocolate — something they say no other local company does. Amarah’s chocolates are sold in their Williston store front and in chocolate shops across the East Coast. Every day they sell hundreds of chocolates. They have lots of repeat customers who come back for their favorites at Amarah’s, including their salted caramels. Customers also rave about brandy cordial cherries. Angela Emerson: There is a certain etiquette to eating a real cherry cordial you must eat it all at once. Reporter Gina Bullard:The whole thing? Angela Emerson: Yes, all at once, because it’s full of fluid — there’s no cream in it. Crafting Made in Vermont chocolates bursting with flavor.

“ka Mo’olelo Moana,” Or “the Ocean Story,” Is A Monthly Column Submitted By Maui Ocean Center Staff Members.

Cushion stars can be reddish or almost golden in color. When small, they often look like Christmas cookies. Sea stars may have spines, knobs, bristles or a smooth-feeling texture. Most can regenerate an arm if they lose one. Some species simply detach an arm to regenerate a new star from the arm itself or even split apart to make new stars. The Christmas tree worm (kio in Hawaiian) is another marine species that comes to mind at this time of year. Bearing little resemblance to an actual Christmas tree, the kio consists of a worm hiding in a rigid tube at the end of which protrude two spiral-shaped fans of tentacles used to capture food. The waving tentacles can be orange, yellow, blue or tan in color. When threatened, the worm withdraws its tentacles and seals the opening so nothing can get to it. This critter is often found living on lobe coral and is believed to protect the coral from predation by the voracious crown of thorns sea star. As we rush around shopping for gifts to celebrate the season, we might want to consider that one of the best gifts we could give our children would be to take care of our oceans so that these and other amazing ocean critters can survive to delight, inform and sustain future generations. Happy Holidays! * Pam Daoust is a contributing writer for Maui Ocean Center. “Ka Mo’olelo Moana,” or “the Ocean Story,” is a monthly column submitted by Maui Ocean Center staff members. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There Isnt Actually Any Chocolate In It, Said Geiss.

See Full Story Theres a new type of beer on tap at Dearborn Brewing on Michigan Avenue. The brewery, which has been open since Homecoming weekend this past August, has brought in guest brewer Doug Geiss to share his recipe for Death by Chocolate porter, a style of beer meant to highlight a burnt chocolate flavor that pairs perfectly with the holiday season. Geiss has been a homebrewer for a long time. A former Michigan State representative, he got started when he joined Ford Motor Companys Ford Employees Recreation Association (FERA), which had a homebrew club. He joined at the urging of a friend, and has since become president of the brew club. The club brings people together with common hobbies, said Geiss. Geiss got the original recipe in 1994 from a fellow Ford employee who had spent some time in England. He developed gout and willed his recipe to me, said Geiss. Dearborn Brewing owner John Rucinski has known Geiss on and off for about 15 years from the Ford Homebrew Club. He campaigned for the guest brewer spot, said Rucinski, referring to Geiss political past. We had posted on our Facebook page, asking what was needed at the brewery, and Doug chimed in with the porter. Together, along with Johns wife Sheila, co-owner of the brewery, they brewed the porter at the end of October, and it was tapped for the first time last Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. Rucinski was excited to get the porter to the people. Its been Dougs recipe for years, and the name is exciting. Its a perfect fit for the season and the holiday. The weather turns, and you get these bigger flavors. Those bigger flavors were the result of the malts being roasted. The malts are much like coffee in that the longer you roast them, the darker the chocolate taste will be. There isnt actually any chocolate in it, said Geiss. We used twice as many malts. The chocolate is mild, said brewery customer Denis Boismier of Gibraltar. Its not bitter, but its dark and got a little kick to it. But its not too heavy. Its carbonated, said Geiss, Which wont be heavy like the nitrogen beers. Besides the porter, the brewery has four other beers on tap now, including an amber ale, a sour, a pale ale and American wheat. They have space for six total taps, and they are hoping to get to about eight. Right now, we are working on our second batch of IPA, Says Rucinski.

And Around The World, In 20 Particularly Waterlogged Spots, Tiny Governments And Big Investors Alike Are Pulling Out The Stops And The Bucks In Hopes Of Avoiding Submersion .

Let them. Far away from everything, in the middle of the ocean, a row of sandbags fights against the future: Its a matter of survival on the tiny island nation of Kiribati, its gambit aimed at staving off the rising Pacific. Over on Tuvalu, another small island country, the government is considering filling in the lagoon in the center of an atoll to boost soil levels. And around the world, in 20 particularly waterlogged spots, tiny governments and big investors alike are pulling out the stops and the bucks in hopes of avoiding submersion . But isnt this all wasted effort? Crumbling seawalls, swept away sandbags and roads that bubble up with saltwater would suggest yes. Climate change shows no sign of reversing and the ocean shows no sign of subsiding. If were brutally honest, arent the efforts to save these islands in vain? Shouldnt we let them sink? Create a legal status for environmental refugees, and place responsibility for sheltering them on the rich, polluting states. You can get the impression that the best solution would be to start the flight process now rather than the fight process, concedes Dr. Scott Leckie, founder of Displacement Solutions, which focuses on those displaced by climate change in more than 20 countries. He doesnt quite buy it, but some do. Like James Russell, a University of Auckland ecologist who led a study on invasive species that, daringly, considersisland biology not just over the next 10 years but the next 100. When you use that timeline, Russell tells OZY, saving species on sinking islands could be a low-value proposition, and we might want to rejig the balance of where we invest. Its not as callous as it might sound. Were we to write off the small island states, the international community would have to come to terms, instead, with the millions of people who live there. We might at last create a legal status for environmental refugees, and apportion responsibility for sheltering them among the rich, polluting states that made their homes precarious in the first place. Indeed, in Panama, the Kuna (or Guna) people plan to join their mainland cousins in the near future. This summer, the Kiribati government purchased land in Fiji; though it has stated that the land is for agriculture only, many observers believe it is the future settlement once the island sinks. Of course, finding high ground may not be the perfect solution. Leckie says that after relocation, one can expect that the standard of living may dramatically decline unless the process is community-led. The likely scenario, in Fiji, for example, is not a vibrant, well-functioning, prosperous settlement, but an impoverished, unstable place that could even provide foundations for ethnic conflicts that arent present now. But if thats the fear, maybe thats just another reason to invest those international development dollars in settlements rather than sandbags.

12 (upi) — Six Stars From The Original Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory Reunited Thursday To Celebrate The Classic Film's 44th Anniversary.

David Heyman set for Producers Guild of America honor 12, 2015 at 2:37 PM Comments ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 12 (UPI) — Six stars from the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory reunited Thursday to celebrate the classic film’s 44th anniversary. Meeting with NBC in Orlando, Paris Themmen (Mike TeeVee), Rusty Goffe (an Oompa Loompa), Denise Nickerson (Violet Beauregarde), Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt), Michael Bollner (Augustus Gloope) and Peter Ostrum (Charlie Bucket) reminisced about their memorable experience on set of the film for the Today Show. “We think of ourselves as a family,” Themmen, who played the screen-obsessed Mike in the 1971 film adaption of the book by Richard George and Roald Dahl . “Maybe a bit of a dysfunctional family,” he added. Goffe, an original Oompa Loompa older than the once-child stars surrounding him, noted the reunion is “scary” because of the amount of time that passed. “When we made the movie,” he said, motioning to the others, “they were kids.” The truth about a longtime mystery about Willy Wonka’s wonderland was revealed during the reunion: the famous chocolate river in which Bollner’s character Agustus fell was not actually chocolate. “It was water,” he said. “It was disgusting,” Goffe added. The movie’s lead character Charlie, played by Ostrum, grew up to be a veterinarian instead of an actor. “Everybody could be so lucky to have an experience like this and go in a completely different direction,” he said during the interview. Although Gene Wilder , who played the infamous Willy Wonka, was absent from the reunion, another of his movies, Young Frankenstein, made the top 10 list of the Writer Guild of America’s Funniest Screenplays Wednesday. Among others were Dr. Strangelove by Stanley Kubrick and Monty Python and the Holy Grail by Graham Chapman. The top spot for funniest screenplay went to Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman’s Annie Hall.

That’s Number One.

Associated Press View photo This image released by Hearst Publications shows “O, The Oprah Magazine,” December 2015 issue featuring Oprah’s favorite things. The list was revealed Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015 on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Before she gave up her talk show, Oprah revealed her picks on TV and in print. Now, the December issue of the magazine carries on the holiday tradition she established more than 20 years ago. (Hearst Publications via AP) NEW YORK (AP) — A Kardashian-worthy phone case rimmed with tiny lights, a keepsake book of “Letters to My Love” and a banana, peanut butter and chocolate cake called the Elvis are among Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2015. This year’s list, which guarantees companies a bump in sales, includes 87 items, from a doggie faux fur jacket from Park Avenue and little-kid animal boots made by Emu to an elegant box of cut flowers courtesy of High Camp and Oprah’s favorite drawstring, tapered sweatpants (she owns three pairs of these, called the Vince from Melange). While declaring the sugary Elvis namesake from Carousel Cakes “stupid good,” she also put the traditional holiday yule log on notice by including a deep-dish cherry pie made by a California bakery, Sweet Lady Jane. And lest we forget about Hanukkah, there’s a flat challah in the shape of a menorah, courtesy of Eli Zabar in New York. The List, as loyal Oprah watchers call it, was revealed Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” It was previewed for an intimate group of media and business partners the day before high atop Manhattan’s Hearst Tower, home of “O, The Oprah Magazine.” Before she gave up her talk show, Oprah revealed her picks on TV and in print. Now, the December issue of the magazine carries on the holiday tradition she established more than 20 years ago. What else made the cut this year? The multicultural line of Fashionista Barbies (of which Oprah declares: ‘I love chocolate Barbie!’) and roomy sweatshirts in soft pink, yellow and blue that pay homage to her favorite day of the week with the slogan, “I Love Sundays.” But for the queen and her right-hand elves, pal Gayle King and the magazine’s creative director, Adam Glassman, the holidays begin the summer before, when Glassman scouts prospects at gift shows and markets around the country. He and King vet as they cull and chat with Oprah via Skype to narrow the picks. “We try everything and gain weight doing that,” laughed Glassman at Wednesday’s preview. “We smell everything. We try everything on. And then we do a big summit in August, where we rent out a studio and we spend two days going through probably about 500 items.” This year, they’re trying something new, sourcing stocking stuffers and bigger gifts at a variety of price points on Amazon. “We really choose the products based on relevancy,” Glassman explained. “Will people like it? Will it bring joy and passion to their life? And it’s really about things that Oprah wants to give. That’s number one. But then, companies are really made by being on Oprah’s Favorite Things.” The latter, he said, has led to a little chat between Oprah’s camp and the vendors picked about supply and demand. “Once a company makes the list we have to explain to them about inventory. How much do they need? They need to make a lot. Some people get it and some people don’t fully understand it until maybe it’s a little too late,” Glassman said. “And there are times when people call me and go, ‘I wish I had 3,000 more, we sold out.'” With the convenience of Amazon, he added, “I suspect before Christmas we will sell out of a lot of stuff.” ___ AP reporter Alicia Rancilio contributed to this story.

She Then Fabricated The Needles In A Candy Bar Story To Her Parents, Who Rightfully Reported The Incident To Police, According To Hogan.

Police said that around midnight on Nov. 1, Kennett Square Borough Police Department received a report that sewing needles had been found in candy bars by children who had been trick-or-treating on Halloween the night before. One child triggered the report. Upon learning of the incident, the police informed the public of the potential risk and instructed the community to contact authorities with reports of any further incidents, police said. Shortly thereafter, another needle in Halloween candy was reported to police by a second child from Kennett Square. The Kennett Square Police Department, with assistance from the Chester County Detectives, investigateed the reports. The police interviewed family members multiple times, canvassed the neighborhoods where the kids had been trick-or-treating, re-interviewed the reporting children, processed evidence recovered in the investigation, and even dug through trash dumpsters to recover other candy that had been discarded by the reporting children. While reviewing the trash, police discovered a spool of thread among the discarded candy from the first reporting child, leading to questions about whether the child may have taken the needles from a home sewing kit. Both families were cooperative throughout the investigation and were helpful in uncovering the truth, Hogan stated. In the first incident, an 11-year old girl took several needles from her mothers sewing kit and hid them in Twix bars. She did this after seeing a photograph of needles in candy shown to her by an adult who was advising her to be safe while trick-or-treating. She then fabricated the needles in a candy bar story to her parents, who rightfully reported the incident to police, according to Hogan. The second incident involved a 12-year old boy hearing the reports about the first incident and then imitating what had been reported. The young boy inserted a needle inside of a Snickers bar and showed his older sister, who promptly reported it to the police, according to investigators. Hogan said both children fully recanted their initial reports. They both gave complete statements to the police, with the last statement being completed in the evening hours of Nov. 5, 2015. The DA said that based on the ages of the children involved, the cooperation of their families, and other mitigating factors, no formal charges will be filed against the children.
