Nothing more American than apple pie

Japanese college students spending five weeks at ONU

By Monty Siekerman
Japanese students learn there is nothing as American as apple pie.

Here, Mana Hashimoto of Mie, Japan, learns how to make apple pie with crumb topping. Has she ever made a pie in her home country? No, one sees pies only in hotels or specialty bakery shops there.

Mana is one of 28 Japanese students studying at Ohio Northern for five weeks this summer as part of a program to acclimate international students to American college life.

hey were having a great time peeling apples and rolling out crust, soon to be a tasty treat rarely found in Japan.

Update on the at-large rooster

Note: Last week we asked if anyone was good with roosters. CLICK HERE for that story.

Update on Rooster - Still Available, running circles around our cops (specifically the Chief).

Good News - the owner of the Rooster has been identified. Seems the little guy got away when he discovered news of a Chicken Swap and wanted no part of it.

The owner is attempting to capture him now - Good Luck.
