5 ideas for your Super Bowl menu

The Super Bowl is less than a week away. Here are some suggestions from the Recordnet archives to jumpstart your game day menu:

1. How to throw a Super Bowl party that feeds 10 people for about $50. We know it costs more than $50 to make all of these recipes today but we think they’re still pretty inexpensive. (Note: The twice-baked potatoes and the bacon-stuffed cherry tomatoes are awesome!)

2. Fire up Super Bowl Sunday with Buffalo wings. In 2009, former Record staffer and New York state native Ian Hill showed us how easy it is to make authentic Buffalo wings at home.

3. Spicy chili pairs perfectly with red wine for Super Bowl delight. Last year, Chef Michael Midgley shared his recipe for Texas Spicy Chili which he suggested pairing with the 2011 Sorelle Russo Red. Whether you serve it with wine or not, chili is a perfect meal for the Super Bowl.


OK, so these last two aren’t specifically Super Bowl recipes but we still think they’d fit in with your spread.

4. Fruit bouquets offer a fresh twist on the traditional gift basket. Silence that voice in the back of your head complaining about all the calories you’re about to consume with a decorative and delicious selection of fresh fruit.

5. Fair contest encourages cooks to get creative with America’s first fast food. Deep in the Recordnet archives is a story about the Best SPAM Recipe contest at the 1999 San Joaquin County Fair. What could be more unique for your Super Bowl party than a dish made with America’s favorite canned meat? Check out the recipes here.



Tasty topiaries: Think all trees are just for decorating and admiring? Think again and have a bite. Take a styrofoam cone, add some brownie bites, creme puffs or miniature doughnut holes then add a foam football, or a few maple bars pinned together with toothpicks to resemble a football, on top and you have a replica Lombardi trophy.

Quarantines called on citrus around Lodi, Manteca

The Record

Having found two Asian Citrus Psyllids, the California Department of Food and Agriculture on Monday called quarantines around Lodi and Manteca, banning the movement of citrus leaves or clippings.

The psyllid is known to transmit “huanglongbing,” a devastating disease of citrus trees transmitted to healthy trees from infected ones by the insect. The quarantine was ordered beginning Monday.

The quarantine around Lodi encompasses 95 square miles, including all of the city and surrounding rural area from Eight Mile Road to the south to Jahant Road to the north, from just west of Lockeford to the east to just east of Interstate 5 in the west. The map can be found online at http://pi.cdfa.ca.gov/pqm/manual/pdf/maps/3435ACPSanJoaquinLodi.pdf.

The quarantine around Manteca encompasses 105 square miles, and includes all of Manteca, parts of Lathrop, Ripon and French Camp, and a wide swath of rural land surrounding it. The map can be found online athttp://pi.cdfa.ca.gov/pqm/manual/pdf/maps/3435ACPSanJoaquinManteca.pdf.

Morning crime report for Oct. 28, 2014

Recordnet and its sister sites are down because of a network issue at a hosting site. We’re working to restore our websites as quickly as possible but until then, here are some of the stories from this morning’s crime report:

Man stabbed in head with screwdriver during fight

STOCKTON — A man told police he got into a fight about 8 p.m. in Gleason Park with a male “who was giving him a mean look,” according to a report.

Then, six or seven more assailants jumped in and attacked him and he ended up getting stabbed in the head with a screwdriver, police reported.

The victim walked home and was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries. Police described the victim as “uncooperative” and reported he provided very little information regarding the assault.

Man carjacked as he waited for family members who were shopping

STOCKTON — A carjacking occurred in downtown Stockton early Monday evening, Stockton police reported.

A man was sitting in his parked car, a black 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix (license 4MHT075) around 6 p.m. in the first block of North American Street waiting for family members who were shopping when two men approached on either side of the car, according to a report.

The carjacker on the driver’s side pointed a semiautomatic handgun at the victim’s head and demanded money while his accomplice got into the front passenger seat. When the victim told the carjackers he had no money, they told him to get out, according to police.

Once the victim was outside, one carjacker drove off in the Pontiac while the second carjacker drove away in a red Nissan Altima. The carjacker with the gun was white, in his late 30s, 5 feet 9 and 190 pounds, last seen wearing blue jeans and an old brown plaid shirt. His accomplice was a 5-foot-4, 160-pound man, police reported.

Home near charter school struck by gunfire

STOCKTON — While in the bedroom of her home in the 700 block of East Park Street, across the street from Pittman Charter School, a woman heard seven to eight gunshots around 9:50 p.m. Monday and discovered her house had been struck several times, police reported.
A witness reported to police an older white Buick was seen leaving the area, according to a report. There was no further information.

Recordnet launches new commenting system

Yesterday, Recordnet.com  launched a new commenting platform. Our goal is to enhance the experience by giving readers new ways to interact with each other, share opinions and engage with the news.

Comments submitted through the old system will continue to appear under past articles (with the temporary exception of comments posted within the past two-to-three weeks).

New commenting accounts can be created using an existing Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn account. Users who don’t have one of those accounts can go those social networks right now to create a profile that can be connected to a commenting account. Look for the “Sign up” link on the new comment boards under articles.

When first logging in under your preferred social network, our new commenting platform provider – Viafoura – will ask you to confirm that you want to link your social network account to its platform.

Once readers are signed up and logged in, here are a few of the new features they will find:

  • Readers have the option to “like” other comments they see. The commenting system uses “likes” to determine the most popular comments and commenters. Readers will have the opportunity to filter and sort comment boards so the most-liked posts appear at the top, leaving the least-liked comments at the bottom.
  • Writers have the ability to reply to a specific comment in a thread, helping readers keep better track of all the conversations happening within the same topic.
  • With just two clicks, readers can share comments they write or read to their preferred social network or email.
  • Readers can follow the action on a specific comment board by signing up for email notifications. Email will be sent when other writers add posts to the article that interests them.
  • Readers who see a comment that is objectionable can click the “Flag” link, which will alert a moderator who will review the comment and remove it if necessary.

Hitchhiking to an inauguration

As part of our coverage of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Record reporter Joe Goldeen and I went to the University of the Pacific to interview professor emeritus Robert Benedetti.

His memories of that awful day and its effect on the nation and his generation can be seen here.

Benedetti also attended Kennedy’s inauguration Jan. 20, 1961. He first heard about Kennedy while on a trip to Hawaii the summer after graduating from high school in 1960. Having decided to attend Amherst College in Massachusetts — Kennedy’s home state — Benedetti figured he’d better study up on the Massachusetts senator then running for president against Richard Nixon.

Kennedy went on to win the presidency in November 1960. Benedetti decided he wanted to see the inauguration. Here’s his story:

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston has video of Kennedy taking the oath — he was sworn in by Chief Justice Earl Warren, a former governor of California — and delivering his inaugural address. You can watch the whole thing here.
