We in West Virginia pride ourselves on being neighborly. That's why my friend Carol and I decided to take a cake to Martha Stewart, a recent arrival to our state. Martha is serving a five-month sentence at the federal prison camp in Alderson for lying about a stock deal. I don't condone Martha's actions, but at least she is doing time while her male counterparts in financial skulduggery are still free. Charles Town is 231 miles from Alderson. Carol and I left early on a frigid Saturday because visitors are allowed at Alderson on the weekend.

By TERI JOHNSON Staff Writer You're out of baking powder, but you crave a chocolate cake. You dump in some extra flour instead, only to have your hopes knocked as flat as the mess you pull from the oven. Many people don't realize that baking is chemistry, says Cheryl Reitz, consumer foods specialist with Hershey Foods Corp. "If you make any substitutions, you can drastically change the results," Reitz says. Unlike cooking, baking is an exact science, says Michael Toth, culinary arts program instructor at Washington County Career Studies Center.

Laura Kefauver turns to grandma's one-pan chocolate cake recipe when she needs cake in a hurry. To make the pan cake, you dump all the ingredients in the cake pan and mix. Bake it for 30 to 40 minutes. Top with your favorite frosting - Kefauver likes butter cream - and serve. No fuss, no messy clean-up afterward. "It's an easy recipe for kids to make," said Kefauver, who teaches preschool at Hagerstown Children's School. "It teaches them basic math skills. " However, she doesn't recommend this for her preschoolers.

Schetrompf, who makes wedding and special event cakes for a living, said she would have charged $100 if she'd sold the birdhouse-themed cake privately, but because it was sold at the fair's cake auction Donielle Inskeep of Hancock got it for $30. "They got a deal," said Schetrompf, who works for Cindy's Sweets and Supplies Inc. in Williamsport.

In a recent class, I received several blank stares as I tried to explain how book titles can be underlined or italicized. There was a time when italic type was only available to publishers and calligraphers. Italic type looks like this. It tilts to the right. Typewriters did not have format or font functions to change type to bold or italic, so students were taught to underline titles and the names of long works. The title would be typed and the typewriter carriage would be moved back to the beginning of the first word so that an underline could be tapped out one character at a time.
