The saying goes that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are wineries, for that matter. That’s why though Scatter Creek Winery just passed its eighth birthday, its history stretches back many years before that, when husband and wife team Terril and Andrea Keary began cultivating the vines, recipes, and skills needed to create their unique wine blends.
Their hard work has paid off—their wines have racked up 10 medals and awards from local news outlets and festivals, most falling upon the glasses of Valley de Bon Blanco for the gewurztraminer’s dry flavor and elderberry notes. During tasting sessions, guests can sample the award winners and others, such as the spicy yet fruity Creekside Rossa pinot noir and the Glaciers End ice wine.
In the gift shop, guests can pick up bottles emblazoned with artwork from local artist Leslie Kilbourne or pick up supplies to brew their own beer or wine at home, ensuring that they no longer have to wait until their juice boxes ferment.
When Rob Panowicz looks into a diamond, he sees more than its sparkle. He sees subtleties of cut and color that are virtually invisible to the layman's eye. It makes sense that his knowledge runs so deep?after all, he's been working within Panowicz Jewelers, a family-owned jewelry shop on Market Street, since he was a child.
"Dad opened the store shortly after my first birthday, and we kind of grew up with the store," he said. "My job in the first grade was to come down Saturday morning to wash the floor, sweep the sidewalk, and wash the window inside and out."
Today, Rob has stepped into the role his father once held, welcoming visitors into the boutique and handpicking the most radiant diamonds he can find for his shop. Customers can also find diamonds, engagement rings and world renowned jewelry collections by designers such as Alberto Petochi, the sixth-generation Roman jeweler behind the 1884 Collection. Panowicz and his team take custom orders, too, crafting one-of-a-kind designs for clients who wish to stand out even at parties held inside gold mines.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller.

Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU.
