In spring, before new growth begins, prune vigorously, removing thin, weak canes and reducing height to 12 inches or less.Modern roses bloom best on vigorous new growth stimulated by pruning, rather than old, woody canes allowed to remain.

Bar, Le Diplomat. Available in Maryland at Balducci's in Bethesda; on the list at Addie's in Potomac. Available in Virginia at Balducci's (Alexandria, McLean); on the list at Hummingbird in Alexandria.
Left Foot Charley Blaufrankisch 2017
Blaufrankisch, also known as Lemberger or Blue Franc (a proprietary name), is best known for the lush red wines of Burgenland, in Austria. It has long made cameo appearances in New York and Washington states. This beauty from Michigan is silky and lithe, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with just a hint of caraway spice (my identifier for the grape, this note can be overpowering if the grapes were underripe). If I can find more, it will be on my Thanksgiving table. ABV: 13 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue). Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's. Available in Maryland at 5 O'Clock Wine... Oct 12, 2018

MGM Springfield donates $25000 to Square One, chef teaches kids about wheat grass, edible flowers
MGM General Manager Alex Dixon, Marikate Murren, vice president of human resources and Jose Delgado, director of government affairs, participated in the lesson and awarded Square One with a $25,000 donation.
"Square One's programs and initiatives are key to this city's future. From child care to job placement and teaching (children) about healthy eating, Square One offers viable tools to the city so they can find success for their families," Dixon said. "It is our hope that this ($25,000 donation) will help support the important work that they are doing to make Springfield a great place to raise kids."
Joan Kagan, president and CEO of Square One and Kristine Allard, vice president of development gave the MGM executives a tour of the center.
Of the 500 children Square One serves every day, 100 percent are living at or below the poverty line. Many are living in homeless shelters; struggle with food insecurity; have a parent who is in addiction recovery or post-incarcerated; have suffered from abuse and neglect; and/or are in custody of an appointed legal guardian or foster parent.
"The care and education we provide for many of our children leaves us at a deficit of $6,000 per child each year," she said. " That is why we rely so heavily on donations and programs like adopt a classroom, to provide children with the safe, engaging, educational environment they deserve."
Kagan said she is grateful to MGM for their support of community organizations.
"We share a common vision of a bright and healthy future for Springfield ... Sep 10, 2018
Limits on hours and graveside memorials at San Jacinto cemetery has upset some families
District board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 14 – about half spoke out on the issue.
Many got emotional about why they don’t like the changes.
Alex Olivas, whose sister Elizabeth Olivas is buried at the cemetery, said the lack of flowers and other items makes the cemetery look lonely.
“It doesn’t look lively,” he said. “We did lose our loved ones, but we want to keep them alive.”
Veronica Ontiveros said she has a number of family members buried at the cemetery. The changes are difficult because everybody grieves differently, she said.
“You will not stop us from our religious rites,” Ontiveros said, objecting to not being able to pray all night, especially on Dia de los Muertos. Others said they wanted to be able to visit a site to pray in the middle of the night.
“You cannot deny us that,” Ontiveros said.
Other speakers said they paid for their plot and should be able to do as they please.
Because the flower policy was not on the agenda, the cemetery board did not address the comments, except for a statement read by Vice Chairman Ben Cheeseman that explained the policy.
The policy now allows for artificial and fresh flowers to be placed in two cemetery-installed flower vases on the grave and one 8-inch or smaller potted unbreakable container on the marker.
Families may place statues, toys or other items at a gravesite as long as they are in an approved container. Items will no longer be removed weekly for mowing, as had been the policy, Griese said.
“They get to keep it as long as they want, as long as they are in one of the three receptacles,” Griese said.
The cemetery is not gated, but visitors will not be allowed after 10 p.m. for safety reasons. Griese said there have been issues at night.
Speakers mentioned seeing homeless people sleeping and even bathing in the ce...
