1 B U L L E T I N of the San Bernardino County Bar Association Vol. 41, No. 12 Our 138th Year October 2013 From the President s Desk By Kevin B. Bevins Seeking divine and inspired wisdom for a clever contribution, I reviewed many President s Desk articles from October Bar Bulletins of years past. The common thread is just how quickly twelve months pass! As my term as President of the wonderful San Bernardino County Bar Association comes to an end, I reflect on some of the memorable events, challenges and successes of the 2012/2013 Bar Board and my time as President. I attended my first California State Bar Association Convention in Monterey last October. If you have never attended, I urge you to go, at least once. The one resounding message from the Bar Leader s Conference for incoming bar leaders and executive officers was to enjoy the year, and to have fun, and that, I did. As busy as the year was, it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience to serve as President of the oldest bar association in the State of California. At the Installation dinner last October, Grover Porter was awarded the George W. Porter Criminal Trial Attorney Award. I was fortunate to work with Mr. Porter on a bar committee this year and saw firsthand why he is such a beloved member of our legal community. Paul Shimoff and Bruce Varner were elegant in their acceptance of the John B. Surr Award, earned by each of them for a career exemplifying the highest standards of our profession. It was fun to hear Jack Brown, President of Stater Brothers Markets pay tribute to his friend and trusted counsel, Mr. Varner. A surprise visit by California Attorney General Kamala Harris, and then candidate, now Assemblymember Cheryl Brown just before the Installation Banquet got our event off to a great start. One of the themes of From the President s Desk articles of this past year was the funding crisis with the state courts. We are fortunate to have the best group of Judges and Commissioners in the state, and it was a privilege and pleasure to work with Presiding Judge Marsha Slough, Chief Executive Officer Stephen Nash, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, particularly Robert Lovingood, and James Ramos, and many others to stress the critical need and unique (Continued on page 2) INLAND EMPIRE EVENTS October Thursday - Sunday 10/10-13/13: California State Bar Meeting San Jose See page 4 for SBCBA Event in San Jose!

We are fortunate that a revised funding plan has been implemented, but there is much more work to be done to improve the availability of, and access to justice in the San Bernardino County Courts. I was honored and felt very privileged to speak to new attorneys and their families at our two Bridging the Gap Programs. It was delightful to see the eager new admittees take the oaths of office, and see them banter with Presiding Justice Manuel Ramirez and Justice Jeffrey King. Department 1 at the Riverside Court was filled with families and friends, bursting with pride, a touching reminder of just how privileged we all are to be able to make a living working at some aspect of the legal profession. When I had the opportunity to address the new lawyers, I stressed the importance of civility as a practitioner, and the importance of being involved in bar or community related activities. We, as a Bar Association, were proud to honor Judge Larry Allen with the Kaufman/Campbell Award in May, with a banquet in his honor at the Hilton. I have been fortunate to appear before Judge Allen many times in my career. I am particularly pleased that Judge Allen was honored during my term, and that many Judicial Officers were on hand to pay tribute to a man who personifies civility and dignity. There were many wonderful events that I was able to attend as a representative of the San Bernardino County Bar Association, including: the Riverside County Bar Installation Dinners; the Annual Joint Meeting of the Riverside and San Bernardino County Bar Associations in December, where we were treated to the insight and passion of Pat Kelly, President of the California Bar Association; and the Western San Bernardino County Bar Association event honoring Justice Jeffrey King. Judge Ben Kayashima and Judge Michael Welch were each honored on the occasions of their retirement from the bench, and memories of those evenings will be among the many pleasant memories I will share about this past year. We saw a new local bar association formed this year, with the Asian Pacific Lawyers of the Inland Empire off to a running start. APALIE is a prime example of the importance of being involved, and working with others toward a common goal. The San Bernardino County Bar Association staff, under the leadership of Executive Director Claire Furness, Marilyn Gianunzio, Tina Harris, Christine Warner and Cameron Morissette, has been a delight to work with. My sincere appreciation and thanks go to each of them for their help and support, not only this year, but for as long as I have served on the Bar Board. Our John B. Surr Award honoree this year, William Bill Shapiro and his lovely wife Sue hosted a September fundraiser for the Legal Aid Society of San Bernardino at their beautiful home. A large gathering enjoyed the Shapiro s home, delightful food and refreshments, and helped raise much needed funds for Legal Aid. I hope that you will share the evening with us on October 3 when Bill is honored with this well-deserved award. He has been a long-time supporter of the SBCBA, a Past President, and a shining example of civility and dedication to legal excellence. Richard Dick Simon, a stalwart of the Legal Aid Society will also be recognized for his dedication and many years of excellence with the Kearney-Nydam-Shouse Award. Both of these gentlemen personify being involved and the importance of tirelessly contributing their time, energy and expertise. The Lawyer Referral Service has done well this year. Our MCLE programs, symposiums and workshops continue to offer vital continuing legal education programs. Under the direction of Tina Harris, an updated SBCBA website was introduced. If you have not accessed the new website, please do. Tina did a great job! The incoming board, lead by John Zitny will do well. I am looking forward to working with John and the entire board. This has been a fun and rewarding year for me. I hope to stay involved, and I sincerely encourage every practicing lawyer to get involved and offer their skills and insight. Attorneys At Law

5 October 2013 Conference of California Bar Associations: Uniquely Positioned - Aptly Led By Jack B. Osborn President-Elect San Bernardino County Bar Association 2013 CCBA Chair Donnasue Smith Ortiz One San Bernardino attorney has changed the landscape of legislation in Sacramento. Since October, 2012, as Chair of the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA), Donnasue Smith Ortiz has been instrumental in persuading legislators to author 43 separate bills to change laws affecting the practice of law throughout California. In 2013 alone, the Governor has signed eight bills into law that originated with the CCBA, and seven more bills are on the Governor s desk for review. No other organization in California can claim the kind of success with legislation that the CCBA routinely enjoys. Among the new laws are AB 381 which extends current protections against misappropriation of property by attorney-in-fact to elders, dependent adults, and victims of the attorney-in-fact s bad faith undue influence; AB 824 which amends Code of Civil Procedure 1856 to specify that trust agreements are subject to the parol evidence rule; and, AB 1183 which specifies in statute that the clock does not begin to run on the deadline for filing motions to compel further response to discovery requests until verified responses to the requests are received. In conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the State Bar in San Jose this month, Smith Ortiz will preside over several hundred attorneys who will meet to debate this year s proposed resolutions. Approximately 100 resolutions have been put forth for debate by attorneys representing bar associations through the state. These resolutions have already been vetted at meetings of local attorneys that participate in their county s resolutions committee. In San Bernardino County, the CCBA resolutions committee is chaired by Deputy District Attorney James Secord who has met with a committee of local attorneys over a six week period to review each proposed resolution and make a recommendation to the state-wide CCBA. And, six of the current resolutions have been authored by San Bernardino County attorneys. Anyone who knows Donnasue Smith Ortiz is not surprised at her success at leading the most influential legislative organization in the state. As a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law, and as a busy sole practitioner in Rancho Cucamonga, Smith Ortiz, has already held leadership roles in our county. She has served as President of the San Bernardino County Bar Association as well as the Western San Bernardino Bar Association. As a member of the statewide Bench-Bar coalition, Smith Ortiz worked tirelessly this year to successfully press both the legislature and the Judicial Council to change the formula for court funding. Beginning in fiscal year , the outdated and inequitable methodology of funding will be replaced with funding based upon individual workload by the courts. Funding for San Bernardino Courts will go from $61.3 million in fiscal year 2013 to $74.4 million by fiscal year When asked about her accomplishments as chair of the CCBA, Smith Ortiz is characteristically modest: The CCBA is an amazing organization in its own right, and much of the credit really should go to Larry Doyle, our lobbyist in Sacramento. My job has been relatively easy - I simply coordinate the efforts of our volunteer attorneys in pushing the agenda of the Conference in Sacramento. Smith Ortiz notes that the process of shepherding bills into law is inherently political, and the CCBA is uniquely positioned. Given any subject for debate, we always have several attorneys in the organization that are experts, and the legislators heavily rely on our members to provide expert testimony at committee meetings, and to assist legislative staffers get the word out about the legislation. And, it doesn t hurt that our resolutions are always well written. Donnasue Smith Ortiz s term as chair of the Conference of California Bar Associations ends this year. The incoming chair is Helene Wasserman, a prominent labor law attorney and shareholder with Littler Mendelson in Los Angeles. Undoubtedly, Wasserman s job as Smith Ortiz s successor will not be easy. The combination of hard work, quiet but assertive leadership, and modesty, has given Donnasue Smith Ortiz the ability to persuade stubborn legislators of both parties, as well as the Governor, to say yes to many important changes in the law that will have a lasting impact on the lives of all Californians.

6 6 San Bernardino County Bar Association October 2013 From the Desk of the President of the HON. JOSEPH B. CAMPBELL AMERICAN INN OF COURT by Kevin B. Bevins The first meeting of the term of the Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court will be held on Wednesday, October 9, Please join us at our new meeting location, The Castaway Restaurant, located at 670 Kendall Drive, San Bernardino. A buffet style dinner will be served at approximately 5:30 p.m., with Introductions and Program Presentation beginning at 6:00 p.m. We enjoyed many wonderful years at the Arrowhead Country Club. Our organization has grown and after careful consideration, the Board of Directors determined that the time has come for a move to a larger facility. The Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court is a local chapter of the American Inns of Court. An American Inn of Court is an association of judges, lawyers and law students. The Mission of the American Inns of Court is to promote legal excellence, civility, professionalism and ethics. The American Inns of Court Foundation was formally organized in 1985 under the guidance of United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger. The Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court is the oldest Inn in the Inland Empire, having been chartered in The Inn is named after distinguished former Presiding Justice Joseph B. Campbell, of the Fourth District Court of Appeal, Division Two. It is with great pride that we announce that the Honorable Joseph B. Campbell American Inn of Court has been awarded the highest level of recognition for achievement, with the bestowing of an Achieving Excellence Award, Platinum Level, from the American Inns of Court for 2012/2013. Under the leadership of Immediate Past President, the Hon. Diane I. Anderson, our Inn persevered, and earned the award by meeting the criteria established by the National Inn. We will be joined by Caryn Worcester, the Director of Chapter Relations for the Western Region, at a meeting this fall. Caryn will present the award to our Inn. The American Inns of Court adopted the traditional English model of legal apprenticeship, whereby the membership is divided into pupilage teams, and each pupillage team conducts one program for the Inn each year. MCLE credit is available at each program. The program theme for the Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court this year is WHAT CAN THE LAW LEARN FROM BASEBALL? At his Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Chief Justice John Roberts stated that his judicial philosophy was that of an umpire, to call the balls and strikes, not to define the strike zone or pick the winners, but to call the game by the rules. Baseball is indeed an apt metaphor for the practice of law. At the time the French philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville, was touring the United States and expounding about the virtues of our legal system, baseball was being invented in Cooperstown, New York. It was de Tocqueville s view that the U.S. was unique in that its citizens had the love of law imbedded into the culture of the land. The national pastime may be baseball, but national passion continues to be the rule of law. Yogi Berra, the famous New York Yankee catcher and folksy wit philosopher, has a history of interesting head-turning comments that can be a springboard to discussions regarding the law. The program topic for the October 9 meeting is IS THE ROLE OF THE COURT TO SIMPLY CALL BALLS AND STRIKES? Members are encouraged to wear baseball-related attire to kick off the theme for this year. Wear the jersey, jacket, and/or hat of your favorite team to our October 9 meeting! A panel of judicial officers and attorneys will discuss Chief Justice John Roberts essential premise that the job of the judge is simply to call the balls and strikes. How does the unique perspective that each bench officer brings to the Court affect his/her decisions or advocacy? Each judge and attorney brings his/her gender, race, ethnicity, religion, and cultural background to court each day. Can these perspectives appropriately color the outcome in court? This will count for the diversity in the law MCLE credits. Panel: Hon. John Pacheco, Presiding Justice Manuel A. Ramirez, Hon. Janet Frangie The program topic for the November 13, 2013 meeting will be WHEN YOU COME TO A FORK IN THE ROAD, TAKE IT! Yogi Berra believed that each person must ultimately make tough choices and seek any and all opportunities. Yogi decided to stay with the New York Yankees despite tremendous pressure. A panel of local attorneys will discuss the virtues of legal specialization through the California State Bar. Is legal specialization necessary? What benefit does it bring to a practice or to advocacy in Court? Panel: Hon. Judge Raymond Haight and Attorney Bryan Hartnell. The December 11, 2013 meeting is our annual field trip. This year, the Inn will be treated to a tour of the California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Two, in Riverside. Everyone is encouraged to attend, and after the tour, we will meet for appetizers and beverages at a downtown Riverside eatery. As we turn the calendar to 2014, the January 8, 2014 meeting topic is WE HAVE DEEP DEPTH. The importance of developing and maintaining a good legal staff will be discussed with a panel that will include a judicial officer discussing the importance of court staff, attorneys who operate their own practices, as well as a local court clerk or staff member. The February, 2014 meeting is the annual Joint Inns of Court Dinner Meeting where we break bread with members of the Honorable Leo A. Deegan Inn of Court from Riverside and the Honorable Slaughter/Roemer Inn of Court from Indian Wells and the Southwest Inn, from the Temecula area. This year the Joint Dinner Meeting is being hosted by the Honorable Leo A. Deegan Inn of Court. A date, time, and location for this fun and entertaining event will be announced later this year.

7 October 2013 The oldest continuously active bar association in California 7 Our March 12, 2014 meeting topic is IT AIN T OVER TILL IT S OVER. Yogi Berra firmly believed in the comeback. Don t give up; there is always tomorrow s game. There will be a panel discussion consisting of local attorneys (or a guest speaker) about coming back as an attorney after rehabilitation from a State Bar disciplinary action, or recovery from substance abuse. This meeting will satisfy the California MCLE credit regarding substance abuse. Our April 9, 2014 meeting will be held at the La Verne Law School in Ontario. This promises to be a special evening for both the students at La Verne and our Inn. The topic for the evening will be NO ONE GOES THERE ANY MORE; IT S TOO CROWDED. Yogi Berra believed in the importance of service and attention to detail. The small things count. There will be a panel discussion about the seduction of private attorneys to take on too many cases, or the temptation to over-book the day. How do you know when your practice is out of control? How do you balance work/life and provide proper services to clients? We meet again on May 14, 2014, with the topic for the evening USUALLY WHEN YOU GET ONE OF THESE, YOU ARE DEAD OR GONE. Yogi Berra believed in recognizing excellence while people are alive. This will be an evening recognizing excellence within the Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court, along with a panel discussion celebrating -- and gently roasting -- members who have achieved excellence in practice or on the bench, and who best exemplify the mission of the Inn. The June meeting is the annual End of Year Banquet. Historically, the Presiding Judge of the San Bernardino County Superior Court and the Presiding Justice of the Fourth District Court of Appeal, Division Two, are guest speakers for the evening, with each of them presenting their respective State of the Courts. The date, time, and location of the meeting will be announced later this year. In addition to these scheduled events, the Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court is implementing an outreach pupillage team this year. The outreach pupillage team will be comprised of volunteer members who donate an hour of time to pro bono service and then report briefly to the membership about their experience. Participation in the outreach pupillage team will be considered the same as though a member participated in a program presentation. For membership information in the Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court, please contact our Membership Chair Kathleen J. Patterson at I look forward to seeing returning members at the meeting in October, and I hope to see some new faces as well.

11 October 2013 The ipad Lawyer - Adding Barcodes to Documents by Scott J. Grossberg, Esq. For those of you who ve already moved to or are in the midst of transferring to a paperless office environment, the time will come when you might need to add barcodes to your documents. By adding barcodes, you permit your digital document items to ultimately be read or input by a scanner. The information can then be placed into a digital format for later access, retrieval, and use. Unfortunately, there is no reliable all-in-one ipad app of which I m aware that currently allows you to create a document and easily append a barcode. I m sure someone will develop such an app as there is a need for that type of digital creation tool. In the meantime, here is the ipad integrated workflow process that I think works best for you. The is one of those methods that actually reads more complicated than it actually is to apply. STEP ONE: Create the document that you want to ultimately use with a barcode. You can produce the document in your favorite ipad word processing program (for example, UX Write (http: //www.uxproductivity.com/word-proce ssor-for-ipad-and-iphone), QuickOffice Pro HD (http://www.quickoffice.com/ quickoffice_pro_hd_ipad), Pages (http: //www.apple.com/apps/iwork/pages), or DocsToGo (http://www.dataviz.com/ products/documentstogo/iphone)). Alternatively, you can use a PDF creation program like iannotate ( h t t p : / / w w w. b r a n c h f i r e. c o m / iannotate), Save2PDF (http: //mobile.eurosmartz.com/products/ save2pdf.html) or GoodReader (http: //www.goodiware.com/goodreader.html) to create the document. My personal preference is to use UX Write or QuickOffice Pro HD as they provide you with an initial and more flexible word processing environment. They then easily permit you to save your document in PDF format from within the apps themselves. STEP TWO: Convert your document into PDF format and save it. Here s a workflow model to help show you one of the options you have: Create your document in UX Write. Then, save that document as a PDF (you do this by tapping the folder with the arrow on the top right of your screen and selecting the Create PDF option). STEP THREE: If you have saved your PDF document in a word processing app, then use the Open In... option to open the PDF in your preferred PDF creation app. Continuing my example: Open the newly created PDF in UX Write. Tap the folder with the arrow on the top right of your screen. A menu of various apps will now appear that can read the PDF you have created. Tap the PDF Expert icon and the PDF will open and appear in the app. STEP FOUR: Open your favorite ipad web browser. Naturally, this requires you to have an internet connection. Go to one of the websites that allows you to create online barcodes. Here are three for you to explore: Online Barcode Generator Barcode Generator Free Barcode Generator Using one of these sites, create the type of barcode that suits your particular needs. STEP FIVE: Save the barcode to your Camera Roll. Press and hold on the image you are given and save that barcode as an image onto your ipad. The image will be saved to your Camera Roll. STEP SIX: From within your PDF creation app and with your chosen document open, paste the barcode from your Camera Roll onto the document. So, continuing with our example: From within the PDF Expert app, tap the Stamp icon (which will now appear highlighted). Tap on your open document in the place you want your barcode to appear. This will bring up a menu that contains, among other things, a Custom option. Tap on the Custom menu heading. Tap on the + sign. Tap on Image Stamp. This will provide access to your Camera Roll. Tap on the barcode image from your Camera Roll and select the quality of the image you want to use. Your barcode will now appear on the document. You can move and resize it to suit your needs. STEP SEVEN: Save a copy of your barcode-adorned document. STEP EIGHT: When you are ready to use the barcoded document, tap the Send by button from the app you have chosen to use. MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU CHOOSE THE FLATTEN COPY OPTION BEFORE SENDING. By flattening your PDF, you help to prevent manipulation of the barcode, among other things. 11 Please note that not all word processing and PDF creation programs provide the same options. For the specific purpose of creating PDF documents with barcodes, I find that UX Write and PDF Expert are the most capable for my needs. The method I have just provided works well when you only have a few barcoded documents to generate. If you have a large quantity of barcodes and documents to create, I would use a desktop or laptop option. Oh, one last thing - you can use this process just as easily to create documents that have QR codes. The websites I have listed for you give you this option, as well. If you enjoyed this, I d be grateful if you share this with others. That s right, go ahead and help spread this information by ing it to a friend, or sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.

13 October OCTOBER 2013 Almanac By: Tony Sears All times Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), which is minus seven (7) hours from UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). Location: 34.1 N, W. All astronomical data courtesy of the United States Naval Observatory website: October Sky. The October New Moon occurs on Wednesday, October 4, at 5:35 p.m. Look for Jupiter high in the sky after Midnight. Venus is also quite prominent in the western sky at dusk. Bright as a diamond in the western sky for about an hour or so. You may even confuse Venus with an aircraft. Check out the waxing crescent Moon and Venus in the evenings of October 7 and 8. Note the difference from one evening to the next. If you have a clear western horizon and some binoculars, you may be able to spot Saturn and Mercury as well on October 8, to the right of Venus. The October Full Moon, known as the Full Hunter s Moon occurs on Friday October 18, 2013, at 4:39 p.m. This presents a chance to see the fully exposed lunar disk when it rises at 6: 07 p.m. Since clear skies are common in October, this should be a spectacular sight, especially at Dodger stadium... In days of yore, the crops were in at this time of year. Thus there was less cover for the game animals. As you may be aware, on a cloudless night a full Moon reflects plenty of light, which can be exploited for tactical advantage in favor of the hunter. Remember, there was a time when you couldn t go to Stater Bros. for a steak. Don t feel bad for the deer. Due to the fact that their natural predators, Mr. Wolf and Ms. Cougar, are gone from a vast majority of the North American deer habitat, there are plenty of Mule Deer and Whitetail deer. Deer are highly adaptable and will eat anything from grapevines to field corn. In Nebraska last year there were so many deer that it was declared open season, does (not fictitiously named defendants) included. Due to over population pressure, there was a massive disease outbreak, which substantially culled the herd, up to 70% in some places. Deer also have a nasty habit of crossing the highway in the dark, resulting in numerous car wrecks, some fatal. Here is my deer hunting story. I bagged my buck on I-70 in Utah in December of 1983 with my dad s 1982 Porsche 911SC. We here haulin it back from a ski trip to Vail, Colorado. I had just shifted down into third, from 85 down to 70 mph, when ole Buck stepped out from behind a road sign. No time to swerve or brake. Broke a headlight and crinkled the fender. Fortunately, due to extreme cold and good timing, a Utah State Trooper was able to process Buck and make use of him. Dad and I witnessed an amazing display of Bowie knife skill. Hmmm...venison sausage. Garden Notes: In October you can still start a fall garden. Lettuce, Leeks, Bok Choy, Carrots, and Beets, to name a few. Go ahead and clear out those thrashed Tomato plants and put them in the green waste can. This is good time of year to re-load your containers. I use 2 inches of rock (gravel) in the bottom of each container, the 1/3 cactus mix and 2/3 potting soil. You can get the gravel in 50 lb. bags (used for making concrete) no need to buy washed gravel (save that for mulch around your trees). You can spread the used container soil in your beds. The gravel should stay in the bottom of the container. We have several containers dedicated to floriculture. I know this violates the rule handed down from my wife s Calabrian ancestors: If you can t eat it, don t bother growing it. Still, flowers play an important part in the garden. The best thing is that the bulbs you plant now will provide you with fragrant delight an put a smile on your face in the dead of winter. There are some fantastic choices for your container bulb/ flower project. Freesias, a native of South Africa, are simply stunning, with an intoxicating scent. Daffodils (aka Narcissus) are proven performers. Tulips and some of the bulbs seem to do better if chilled. Check out the bulb selection at your local nursery. In your newly reloaded container, plant the bulbs according to instructions, per the package. Place some redwood bark over the planted bulbs. When you start watering, the bulbs will start their cycle. It is also possible to plant the bulbs in late October and let the fall/winter rains take over. After the bulbs run their cycle, completely dried out, all you need to do is over seed with any of the following: Zinnia, Marigolds, Virginia Stock, Cosmos, California Poppies, or Snapdragons and water accordingly. If you are lucky the winter and spring rains will do their job. These flowers and bulbs will perpetuate and provide you with almost year round color. The bees also dig them. We have several containers in this program and it seems to be perpetuating itself quite nicely. Sadly, one of the founding fathers of Mt. Fuji Nursery, Katsumi (Kats) Shiba, recently passed away. Kats took a huge risk, bought land near Foothill & Benson and founded Mt. Fuji Nursery in Mt. Fuji is an old school, full service nursery located in Upland. To this day, Mt. Fuji has a fine selection, a tranquil vibe, and the best service in town. October Recipe. Pan Roasted Potatoes and Fall Squash with Beer Can Chicken. We have a weekly family Sunday dinner at our house. In addition to a simple green salad or green beans, one favorite is to roast new potatoes (the small ones, use whole) or cut-up (fork size) Yukon Gold potatoes and oven roast at 325F until tender, about 45 minutes or so. I wash the spuds, put in a ceramic roasting dish, and toss with olive oil, finely minced garlic or shallot (or both) and season with salt and pepper. You can also use sweet potatoes, yams, or cut up acorn squash or even a small pumpkin. Wash and cut into fork size pieces. Its better to cut the skin off the squash or pumpkin before roasting. It is totally worth a bit of knife work, as the aroma of the roasting potatoes and squash is divine. I am a huge fan of the so-called Beer can style of roasting chickens. I do at least 2 and often 3 chickens, because the left overs are fantastic. You can use an actual beer can; you should get the metal racks that hold the can. Pour out half the liquid, be it beer, seven-up, or cola. I use a red wine and seven-up mix, with fresh rosemary (soak it first) in the can opening. Season the chicken, place on the can or can rack, feet first, and roast over an indirect fire for about an hour. I also use mesquite or hickory or cherry wood chunks for making delicious smoke. Make sure you let your chickens rest for at least thirty (30) minutes before serving. You may thank me later. Buon Appetito! Tony Sears
