Jefferson County man shot after marijuana deal goes bad

Deputies are searching for two suspects after one of them shot a man following a dispute over marijuana late Tuesday night in south Jefferson County, authorities say. “This was a marijuana deal gone bad. I don’t know if they were haggling over price and it went south,” said Mark Techmeyer, spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

A Tale of Two Holiday Breads: Panettone and Stollen

Ruth Tobias Most of us associate fruitcake with those glow-in-the-dark bricks that double as the butt of Yuletide jokes. But think again. Like it or not, fruitcake actually belongs to a proud European family of sweet treats ranging from Spain’s flourless, fig-based "pan de higo" to the date-filled sticky toffee pudding of England. Two of fruitcake's closest relatives are especially beloved this time of year: Italian panettone and German stollen.
