Cocktail star in Stillwater

A Stillwater woman has been named a semifinalist in an online cocktail video contest (emphasis on video) put on by British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. Stephany Wieland, a non-bartender who runs Emmy-nominated YouTube channel "Making It With Stephany," on which she's seen making DIY household goods, is the lone American among five remaining contestants vying to be named a "new cocktail star." Voting runs through Oct. 8 at www.jamieoliver.com, with the winner announced a week later.
