A downtown Oconomowoc business and its traditional menu of food and beer, will now offer a different aspect to its restaurant.

Crafty Cow announced the creation of two “ghost” kitchens known as Down South Sammies and Big Wings. According to Crafty Cow co-owner Devin Eichler, a ghost kitchen is a delivery-only food concept that’s sold exclusively online and through delivery apps.

“Customers will be able to enjoy these exclusive menu options through carryout and delivery, but they will not be available for dine-in,” Eichler said.

Eichler said the ghost kitchens are “just another way for us to expand our reach, especially right now during COVID.”

Eichler’s favorite new menu item is from the Down South Sammies menu: the Hot Chick, a Nashville hot fried chicken thigh, lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo.

“It’s pretty simple, but

Washington state garden offers useful inspiration for Sonoma County front yards

Posted on

For Sandra, a “hands-on” person, it was tough to stay out of the way as a contractor and workmen gutted and completely renovated the 1950s house she and her husband, Howard, had just bought in Walla Walla, Washington.

New to the area, Sandra was keen to get to know the neighborhood. So while the men upgraded her new home to a more modern aesthetic and condition, she turned to the front garden. Each day, from a rental house a few blocks away, Sandra would come over and labor in the garden in an effort to make progress on the house and to begin to meet her neighbors.

The garden was not a garden when she started. Her first efforts were directed at a steep bank along the sidewalk, a discouraging mass of rocks knit together by a dense mat of Bermuda grass. She progressed incrementally, each day removing a few

‘Freedom’: Pence Offers First Defense Of Rose Garden Superspreader Event

Posted on

Vice President Mike Pence offered up the first direct defense of the Rose Garden COVID-19 superspreader event to unveil Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, casting it as a matter of freedom of choice.

During Wednesday’s vice presidential debate, Pence cast the Rose Garden event, where dozens are thought to have been infected with the virus, as an epiphenomenon of the larger pandemic.

Pence said that the story of both that pandemic and the Rose Garden event is not one of incompetence, or dangerous negligence on the part of the government. Rather, it’s a divide between those who love freedom and liberal statists who want to impose yet another mandate on the tired millions, yearning to breathe free.

“President Trump and I trust the American people to make choices in the best interests of their health,” Pence said. “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris consistently talk about mandates and not just

Award-winning Chattanooga designer offers tips on creating your dream kitchen

Posted on

When Jackie Howard gets a call for one of her award-winning kitchen designs, her first thought is, “Please, not another white kitchen.”

The founder and owner of Scarlett’s Cabinetry, Howard has spent more than 30 years making clients’ dreams for their home come true. Her designs garnered her the title of “Best of the Best” in this year’s people’s choice awards by the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Howard has seen countless trends come and go — like white kitchens, which have endured since the 1920s, when white was about the only color on offer. The country had just come out of the Spanish flu pandemic and a gleaming white kitchen was associated with sterilization, a huge selling point at the time.

Today’s crisp white kitchens can speak of cleanliness or homeyness, elegance or minimalism. In a word, they remain timeless.

“White kitchens still sell homes,” Howard says.

Regina Egea, president of Garden State Initiative, offers five suggestions for reducing property taxes in NEw Jersey.

LONG BRANCH – Home and small business owners can get a tax break on improvements to their dwellings in a new tax plan the city adopted Wednesday. 

The plan, called “Fairer Long Branch,” was introduced in February and then had to be reviewed by the Planning Board. The City Council vote was pushed back further due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The timing of the plan, which comes at a moment when tax revenue may be lost due to COVID-19 social distancing measures, didn’t deter the city from passing it.

“We’ll go through with it. I think ultimately, it will encourage people to improve their properties,” Pallone said.  

The council voted 5-0 for the plan in a meeting that was live-streamed.
