Parent and Children Categories in Sidebar for Single post (1 post)

    How can I list the Parent and Children of a single post in a sidebar? I have two separate categories (each have sub cats). For example parent categories are called NEWS and BLOG.

    I followed the examples provided in the CODEX and here is my code:

    } elseif (is_single('')) {
            if (in_category('News')) {
    
            // we're looking at a single category view, so let's show _all_ the categories
    			echo "<div class='SR'><div class='Categ'><h2>News</h2>";
    			echo "<ul>";
    		        wp_list_categories('sort_column=name&optioncount=0&title_li=&hierarchical=0&child_of=&hide_empty=0&include=1');
    			echo "</ul></div></div>";
    		} elseif (in_category('blog')) {
    		// we're looking at the blog category only, so let's show that only
    			echo "<div class='SR'><div class='Categ'><h2>Blog</h2>";
    			echo "<ul>";
    				wp_list_categories('sort_column=name&optioncount=0&title_li=&heirarchical=0&child_of=&hide_empty=0&include=3');
    			echo "</ul></div></div>";
    		} else {
    		// catch all for other categories
    			echo "<p>My god, it's full of stars...</p>";
    		}

    How do I keep the sidebar showing the PARENT and all CHILDREN of that particular single post? I do have subcategories for NEWS and BLOG but they do not show, only the parent shows.

    Help?
