Show on new immigrants opens at labor museum

T

he United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley announced the beginning of the Pacesetter segment of the annual campaign at a tailgate style luncheon in late July at the United Way office. The Pacesetter Campaign is an early effort designed to “set the pace” for the annual campaign which kicked-off on Sept. 9 with the community-wide Day of Caring. Nearly 40 local businesses, schools, and non-profit organizations are set to conduct early workplace campaigns for the Pacesetter effort. Representatives from these Pacesetter organizations attended the kick-off event for lunch and to receive their campaign materials. The chairwoman for the 2011 Campaign is Dr. Cynthia Anderson, Youngstown State University president. The campaign goal is $2,600,000, a $100,000 increase over last year’s goal. The United Way has adopted the “Teaming Up for a Better Tomorrow” theme for the 2011 Campaign. The Pacesetter organizations for the 2011 Campaign are: AIM NationaLease, Altronic, LLC, American Red Cross, Associated Neighborhood Centers, AT&T Mobility, Belmont Pines Hospital, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, Catholic Charities Regional Agency, Compass Family and Community Services, Emmanuel Community Care Center, Fox Youngstown, Gem-Young Insurance and Financial Services, Inc., Help Hotline Crisis Center, Inc., Hill, Barth & King LLC, Home Savings and Loan Company, Interfaith Home Ministries, HandsOn Volunteer Network of the Valley (HOVN), Huntington Bank, Macy’s Distribution Center, Macy’s Southern Park Mall, Mahoning County Career and Technical Center, Mahoning County District Board of Health, Park Vista of Youngstown, Potential Development Program, Sam’s Club – Boardman, Second Harvest Foodbank, Springfield Local School District, Struthers City Schools, Target – Boardman, Trumbull Industries,

St. Joseph the Provider School moves to Brier Hill Bishop George V. Murry, S.J. has announced that St. Joseph the Provider Catholic Elementary School will moves its school site from its present location in Campbell to the school building located at St. Anthony Parish at 1125 Turin Ave. in

Youngstown. The name of the school will remain St. Joseph the Provider. This move will occur with the opening of the school for the 2011-2012 school year. The major reason for this site change is that a large percentage of the St. Joseph the Provider students reside in city of Youngstown. Moving the school to Youngstown will enhance the school’s ability to better serve the students and their families, making transportation and participation in school events more accessible. Rev. Michael Swierz, former pastor of St. Joseph the Provider Parish, has been named the president of the school and will be responsible for continuing to develop the school in terms of marketing, development, finances, and physical plant. Cheryl Jablonski will continue as the school’s principal and the majority of the teachers will follow the school to its new site. Dr. Nicholas Wolsonovich, Acting Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese, endorsed the move, stating that the school should now be in a more strategic location to better serve the students and families.

Downtown architectural tour set for Wednesday, Oct. 19

T

he Metro Monthly continues its monthly architectural walking tour of downtown Youngstown this month. It occurs at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19. The tour begins at the Civil War monument, located on Central Square. The tour will last approximately one hour. Mark C. Peyko, publisher and editor of The Metro Monthly, will lead the free tour, which will cover the history and development of the central business district. In addition, the tour will focus on historic landmarks in the area and recent developments along West Federal Street.

The tour will focus special attention on recent development in the downtown area. Peyko has a master’s degree in historic preservation planning from Eastern Michigan University. His degree focused on architectural history, preservation planning and American settlement. The architectural tour will be presented in memory of local musician and political activist Robert D. Fitzer, who died in 2007 after an extended illness.

omen of the World: A Photographic Journey of New Americans in the Mahoning Valley,” featuring photographs of immigrant women who now live in the Mahoning Valley, opened last month at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor on Wood Street. The show, co-sponsored by Youngstown State University’s Center for Working Class Studies; the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Gerontology; and by the Center of Industry and Labor, will be on display for a month. The center is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The exhibit is part of a larger project to profile “new” immigrants who live in the Youngstown area. Other parts of the project include a radio documentary, informational pamphlet and census data collection. The exhibit, featuring photos from awardwinning photographer and filmmaker Maria Bleahu, provides a glimpse into the lives of immigrant women from across the globe – China, Ethiopia, France, India, Indonesia, Lebanon, Liberia, Malaysia, Mexico, Palestine, Peru, Russia, Syria, Ukraine and Vietnam – who currently live in the Mahoning Valley. Photos will be mounted alongside a short biography of each subject. Bleahu, a native of Romania, earned a bachelor of arts degree in anthropology and a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography, both from YSU, and is currently head of the video department at Stark State College in Canton. She received a filmmaking certificate from the New York Film Academy. One of her films, “The Fastest Gun in the West,” placed 14th at the Cannes Film Festival and won five award nominations at the Soho Film Festival in London. The “Women of the World” exhibit also includes a video presentation with excerpts from interviews with the women. Launa Buetell of MainStreem Music Inc. designed and created the video presentation, while Rosemary D’Apolito, YSU associate professor of Sociology, Anthropology and Gerontology, conducted the interviews. D’Apolito is also responsible for organizing various aspects of the project. Along with the exhibit, YSU and the Center of Industry and Labor are co-sponsoring a radio documentary featuring interviews from 20 immigrant women. The documentary will air on WYSU 88.5 FM. In addition, a 25-page pamphlet with the history, demographics and biographies of the women will be produced. The exhibit is made possible, in part, by the Ohio Humanities Council. For more information on the exhibit, contact the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor at 330-743-5934.

MAHONING VALLEY

Remembering the Renner

BY TOM WELSH SPECIAL TO THE METRO MONTHLY

Editor’s note: The following article was originally published in 1994. It appears in “Remembering Youngstown: Tales from the Mahoning Valley,” now in its third printing. This is the last installment of an occasional series culled from the book.

T

th

he 75 anniversary of Prohibition passed quietly in 1994 – with nearly as little fanfare as the moment Youngstown’s city breweries closed their doors in compliance with the 18th Amendment. The Renner Co. operated the most famous of these local breweries, but the city had five at one time or another. Cleveland boasted more than a dozen. In fact, before passage of the ill-fated Volstead Act in 1919, there were roughly 1,500 breweries across the United States. Upon Prohibition’s repeal in 1933, Youngstown’s Renner Co. was one of 750 that reopened for business. Five decades later, fewer than 50 American breweries were functioning. By the early 1980s, the site of the Renner Brewery had sat vacant for nearly 20 years. Pike Street, which once connected Oak Hill Avenue and Market Street on Youngstown’s South Side, is closed today. Covered with debris, it bears scant resemblance to 19th-century photographs of the cobblestone thoroughfare were draft horses hauled wagons of beer. The homes that ran the length of the roadway were torn down during the Urban Renewal era, and only the ruins of the Renner Co.’s old keg house suggest the site of a thriving business. In such a setting, it’s difficult to envision this account of the plant’s post-Prohibition reopening, published in the Youngstown Telegram on June 28, 1933: “Twenty-four bottles teetered down a conveyor at the Renner Brewing Co., banged into a steel crate and Youngstown’s first legal beer

Brewery

in 13 years was ready for a thirsty public … Full production will be reached at the plant late today when 70 workmen in two shifts of eight hours each turn out 4,000 cases and 300 barrels every 16 hours.” Nearly three more decades would pass before the Renner Co., crippled by national competition and demands for expensive new technology, closed its doors

RENNER WAS THE MOST FAMOUS OF THE LOCAL BREWERIES, BUT THE CITY HAD FIVE AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. permanently. Gilbert “Gib” James Jr., of James and Sons Insurance Agency, described the decline of the brewing company founded by his maternal grandfa-

ther as “part of a larger trend.” The postWorld War II domination of national conglomerates that squeezed out the Renner Co. would eventually undercut the area’s locally owned retail stores and steel manufacturing plants, as well. James, a trustee at the Mahoning Valley Historical Society, frequently assembles artifacts to create historically authentic interiors. His most visible project is the Western Reserve Village at the Canfield Fairgrounds. James’ collection of memorabilia from the Renner brewery, however, combines his love of family and history. Among the mementos he has collected are bottles, trademarks, documents, photographs and the weathered lid of a nineteenth century beer keg. More importantly, he carries memories of a way of life that has all but vanished – one that James feels should be remembered. The story of Youngstown’s Renner brewery actually begins in the village of Dannstadt, near Swartzburg in southern Bavaria, where George Jacob Renner Sr. was born in 1835. Immigrating to the United States in 1849 – supposedly to avoid service in the Kaiser’s army – he settled in Cincinnati with his parents. In 1853, after attending brewing school in nearby Covington, Ky., Renner married another German immigrant, Sarah Oppelheim. The second of the couple’s 12 children, George J. Renner Jr., was born 1856. It was George J. Renner Jr. who purchased Youngstown’s City Brewery in SEE RENNER, PAGE 10

RENNER, FROM PAGE 9

1885, reportedly following a trampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice that the building was up for sale. Located on Pike Street, the brewery had been established by Matthew Sieger in 1861. Efforts to expand and update the Pike Street brewery were temporarily set back by an 1890 explosion and fire that killed the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineer and traumatized Rennerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-year-old son, Emil. A 1982 article in Western Reserve Magazine by Gene DeCapua detailed the late Emil â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spitzâ&#x20AC;? Rennerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account of the incident. Renner recalled that he and his mother had just returned from a performance of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uncle Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabinâ&#x20AC;? at Youngstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old Opera House when she asked him to fetch a pitcher of beer from the nearby brewery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get through the cellar, you had to go through the boiler house. There was a terrific explosion, and it blew Mr. Richeterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head off, right at his shoulders. It knocked me against the ice machine and the lights went out, but I managed to get out.â&#x20AC;? Renner added that the force of the explosion blew the boilerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hood across the Mahoning River. Faced with over $80,000 in damage, George J. Renner Jr. was granted a $35,000 loan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without security â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the president of First National Bank. An additional loan, from a Pittsburgh-based malt salesman, provided the brew master with the resources to upgrade the plant and improve distribution. At this time, Renner introduced amber bottles as a supplement to traditional wooden beer kegs. Around this time, George J. Renner Sr. was also independently operating a brewery in northeastern Ohio. Two years before the explosion in his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plant, Renner Sr. had purchased and upgraded a primitive plant in Akron. James recalled his great-grandfather as a tough-minded immigrant who spoke broken English but â&#x20AC;&#x153;ran the show.â&#x20AC;? According to James, the elder Renner bequeathed four hospitals and two churches to the Akron community upon his death. His son was also civic-minded. For instance in the late 1880s, the Youngstown brewer financed the building of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roman Catholic Church, which stood on the corner of Rayen and Wick avenues on Youngstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Side. James suggested that George J. Renner Jr. was a traditional German patriarch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a serious man, who read avidly, consumed a large afternoon meal of sour meats and dumplings, worked long hours at this brewery and relaxed by playing golf at Mahoning Country Club. But if Renner focused on simple pleasures, successful entrepreneurs of the era â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before the advent of Income Tax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were expected to live in style. The younger Renner was no exception. On Dec. 16, 1905, the Youngstown Vindicator announced the brewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to build on the North Side â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the finest residences in this city.â&#x20AC;? Projected to cost $40,000, the SEE RENNER, FROM PAGE 11

METRO MONTHLY | OCTOBER 2011 RENNER, FROM PAGE 10

EFFORTS TO EXPAND AND UPDATE THE PIKE STREET BREWERY WERE TEMPORARILY SET BACK BY AN 1890 EXPLOSION AND FIRE THAT KILLED THE PLANTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ENGINEER AND TRAUMATIZED RENNERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S 7-YEAR-OLD SON, EMIL. Georgian revival mansion was designed to include 14 main rooms and numerous bathrooms and pantries. It stands on Park Avenue near Stambaugh Auditorium. Ursuline Sister Rosemary Diebel recalled visiting her Uncle â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spitz,â&#x20AC;? aunt and cousins at the mansion. She described the magnificent marble staircase, which stretched from the main vestibule to the second floor, and a banquet room featuring golden fixtures and furniture. James remembers well-attended parties where, true to the times, men socialized in one room and women in another. The same year that George Renner finalized plans for the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new residence, his son, Emil â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spitzâ&#x20AC;? Renner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a former baseball and football star at The Rayen School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; joined the company as a salesman. In 1913, as the business expanded, George Renner officially changed the name of the plant from the City Brewery to the Renner Brewing Co. Five years later, the name was shortened to the Renner Co. Following the Volstead Act of 1919, the Renner Co. made a brief and unsuccessful attempt to market a half-percent malt beverage called â&#x20AC;&#x153;R-E-N-O.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately, the process used to boil the alcohol out of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;near beerâ&#x20AC;? left it with a burnt taste, and the brewery quickly suspended operations. When the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition passed in the spring of 1933, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spitzâ&#x20AC;? Renner was firmly at the helm of the brewing company. Anticipating a $200,000 expenditure to upgrade the plant, Renner hired a then-fledgling contracting company headed by Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. for the remodeling project. In that same year, Renner introduced technology for canning his product â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making transportation easier. Given the option of a flat-topped and cone-shaped can, smaller brewers like the Renner Co. selected the latter, because it enabled them to use their old bottling equipment with only slight adjustments. The advent of the tractor-trailer also helped the Renner Co.

MAHONING VALLEY to triple its distribution. These same advances, however, ultimately made it easier for national breweries to compete with local breweries in their home markets. Still, in 1953, Robert Renner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who assumed presidency of the company in 1949 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could announce at that yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual board meeting that Renner beer had outsold all other beers in the Youngstown area for the first time in the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. But by then the Renner Co. was often losing as much as $50,000 a year, James noted, and the family brewery in Akron ceased production in 1957. Furthermore, technological advances in the industry enabled national breweries to eliminate the bitter edge in their product â&#x20AC;&#x201C; resulting in what was termed â&#x20AC;&#x153;tastelessâ&#x20AC;? beer. Hearty Renner brands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old German,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yellow Brand,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Golden Amberâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grossvaterâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were beginning to seem old-fashioned. As late as 1961, the Renner Co. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; amid much publicity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; introduced flat-topped cans. But in the late spring of 1962, demolition for Youngstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new arterial highway system seriously damaged the Pike Street breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cavernous garages. (The company filed suit against the Ohio Department of Transportation on June 30, 1962, and eventually accepted an out-ofcourt settlement of $82,000.) Some interpret the setback as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;last strawâ&#x20AC;? in what was becoming an uphill battle for survival. In any event, in November of 1962, the Renner Co. ceased operations. The Youngstown Vindicator reported that the plant closed â&#x20AC;&#x153;because of the depressed financial state of the immediate distribution territory and because of the insurmountable competition of the large national breweries that have come here with their products at local prices.â&#x20AC;? That same year, the Renner Co. signed a contractual agreement with the Fort Wayne-based Old Crown Brewing Co., permitting them to market their products under Renner trade names until 1976. In 1963, the Pike Street brewery was purchased by the Andrews Avenue Realty Co., which announced plans to remodel the structure for use as a light industrial warehouse. When the plan was abandoned, a portion of the brewery was razed. Fifteen years later, the remainder of the vacant plant was virtually destroyed by a fire of unknown origin. Today itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to mesh old postcard images of the turreted, German-style brewery with the ruin that sits inauspiciously below the former Southside Medical Center. Ironically, years after the Renner brewery closed its doors, an increasing number of Americans are turning to darker, full bodied beers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either imports or those produced by microbreweries; and some of the very elements that fell out of fashion with 1960s consumers, such as the Renner Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elegant labels and bottling, are now considered upscale and desirable.

METRO MONTHLY | OCTOBER 2011

Cultural districts encompass university, downtown, near West Side BY EMMALEE C. TORISK SPEMETRO MONTHLY STAFF WRITER

Y

oungstown was once known primarily for steel: for its robust industry and for its decimating decline. In recent decades, though, the city has forged a new identity, an identity based on a mixture of old and new, of business and culture. Through this process, specific areas of the city have emerged as cohesive centers, or districts, of artistic expression and culture: among these are downtown Youngstown, Mahoning Avenue (or the Mahoning Commons) and Wick Avenue. While some of these cultural districts are well-established, others are more recent and still finding their niche and audience. Join Metro Monthly as we explore these areas and see what they have to offer.

UNIVERSITY DISTRICT

Traditional culture, new forms of expression

B

y the late 19th century, Wick Avenue could be described as Youngstown’s “Millionaire’s Row.” Once the city began to stretch beyond its downtown, Youngstown’s most established families moved north of the business district and began building lavish mansions on Wick Avenue — named for one of the city’s most important early families — and adjacent streets. Over the years, other cultural structures sprung up along the street, including churches, museums and several YSU buildings. Today, Wick Avenue is a mix of old and new, of private and public institutions. Notable facilities include the following: ◆ Arms Family Museum of Local History, 648 Wick Ave.; 330-743-2589.

The museum is open TuesdaySunday from 1-5 p.m. Admission for adults is $4, $3 for seniors (60+) and college students and $2 for visitors under 18.

DOWNTOWN DISTRICT

New creative venues, resurgent vitality

H

istorically, the downtown area — with its blocks of banks, government buildings, theaters, stores, restaurants and hotels — functioned as the center of community and life in Youngstown. However, following the collapse of the steel industry, and in the decades afterward, only traces and remnants of the downtown’s former life remained. In recent years, though, downtown Youngstown has experienced signs of renewal, thanks to emerging entertainment venues and other businesses popping up and occupying oncevacant storefronts and structures. More established, time-honored destinations have also benefited from this new flood of traffic to downtown, which is located just south of the YSU campus. In addition, a number of restaurants and bars have opened in recent years after the adoption of an entertainment-district designation. Besides some of the eateries profiled below, other full-service restaurants downtown include the Beat, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cafe Cimmento, Coyacan, Inner Circle Pizza, Jimmy John’s, Jorgine’s Delicatessen, the Lemon Grove, the MVR, and University Pizzeria. ◆ Cedars Lounge, 23 N.

PERSONAL FINANCE

After foreclosure, what homeowners should know BY ALAN J. ULLMAN

What you should know about powers of attorney

FROM THE OHIO BAR ASSOCIATION

I just found out that the mortgage company is foreclosing on my house! What do I do? Once you receive a copy of a foreclosure lawsuit, you have only 28 days (including weekends) in which to formally respond to the court. If you do not respond, a "default judgment" can be filed against you, meaning that the court assumes that you do not dispute the bank's allegations and will enter a monetary judgment against you, plus an order to have your house sold to satisfy the debt. Anytime a lawsuit is filed against you, you should consider talking to an attorney to discuss your options and responses. How long does the foreclosure process take and what are the steps involved? A foreclosure from filing to sale confirmation takes at least four to six months and can take longer, depending on a number of factors, including your county's legal rules about foreclosure. There are a few steps, which we will call the early, middle and late stages. What happens in the early stage? Before the case is ever filed, the lender sends a foreclosure referral package to an attorney. The attorney will review records at the courthouse in a process called a "title examination" to identify all persons who have an interest in your property, which will include individuals, their spouses for "dower" rights, partnerships, and corporate or governmental entities. Any person who has some type of ownership interest or lien against the property will be named a defendant in the suit. In addition to parties with an interest in the property, the complaint usually names any borrower or co-signer on the loan. By having all interested parties involved in the case, the court can make decisions that are binding upon everyone concerned. After the complaint is filed, the attorney will instruct the court to send you a copy of the lawsuit, usually by

What is a power of attorney? A power of attorney is a document whereby an individual, known as the “principal,” appoints another individual, known as the “attorney-infact,” to make financial and business decisions for the principal. This should not be confused with a “durable health care power of attorney” that appoints another individual to make health care treatment decisions for a principal if the principal is unable to make his or her own decisions.

certified mail and/or through delivery by a sheriff's deputy. You are entitled to know about the lawsuit and you must be served with a copy of it before your lender can proceed to sell your property. Once you receive a copy, you have only 28 calendar days (including weekends) to respond formally to the court. If you do not do so, the court can enter a default judgment against you. Anytime you receive a lawsuit filed against you, including a foreclosure case, you should consider discussing your rights, options, and responses with an attorney. What happens during the middle stage? After all the parties to the case have been served with a copy of the lawsuit, your lender will make a request to the court to order the sale of the property to pay the debt. This is usually through a motion for a judgment entry. In cases where you also signed a promissory note evidencing your promise to repay the money that was lent to you, the lender will ask for a money judgment to be awarded against you. Usually, the court orders that a money judgment be awarded and that the property be sold to raise money to pay the debt.

What happens during the late stages of foreclosure? After the court orders the property to be sold, the sheriff will appraise your property, schedule a sale, and advertise the sale to the public. The sheriff's auction is a public auction, and any adult can bid and purchase real estate

The property must sell for at least two-thirds of the appraised value of your property. The sheriff reports the results of the sale to the court. Then the lender asks the court to validate the sale, to order a new deed to be drawn to the purchase, and to distribute the sale proceeds. This process is known as the "confirmation" of the sale.

Are potential employers harvesting too much information from social media? How are employers using social media in the hiring process? Social media provides a free, easy-to-use hiring tool that gives employers access to information that might otherwise be unknown. Hiring managers can learn about applicants’ extra-curricular activities, what they think of their current employers, political views and more. With millions of active users on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, an employer is likely to find potential job candidates on one or more of these forums. How many companies use social media as a hiring tool? In June 2009, CareerBuilder conducted a survey of 2,600 hiring managers and found that 45 percent

TRENDS IN THE

WORKPLACE of them screened job seekers using social networking sites. Information that may have impacted these recruiters’ hiring decisions included good or poor communication skills, provocative and inappropriate photos or comments, confirmed or false qualifications, photos of alcohol or drug abuse, and the level of creativity or professionalism displayed. In fact, 35 percent of the surveyed employers found information that caused them not to hire a candidate. On the other hand, 18 percent said they discovered information that encouraged them to

hire an applicant. What content from social media sites can employers NOT consider when making a hiring decision? Using social networking sites to screen applicants may unintentionally expose hiring managers to protected class factors and other personal information. Federal and state laws dictate that an applicant’s age, race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability and veteran status cannot be considered when a company is screening job applicants. The recently enacted Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) protects a candidate’s genetics and family medical history as well. Additionally, the National Labor

Relations Act (NLRA) prohibits employers from conducting surveillance of protected concerted activities and making hiring decisions based on whether an applicant is union-leaning. Finally, an employer’s unauthorized access of stored electronic postings may also violate the federal Stored Communications Act or common law privacy rights.

McKenzie, Esq., a shareholder with the Akron labor and employment law firm Kastner Westman & Wilkins, LLC, which represents management exclusively.

What types of powers does the attorney-in-fact have? It depends upon the specific language of the power of attorney document. The power of attorney can be “limited,” giving the attorney-in-fact only very limited powers (such as the power to transfer the principal’s assets to a trust established by the principal), or it can be “general,” giving the attorney-in-fact all of the powers that the principal would have if personally present. When do the powers of the attorney-in-fact begin? Again, that depends upon the specific language of the power of attorney document. The document can be prepared so that the powers begin as soon as the document is signed, or it can be prepared so that the powers “spring” into effect in the future when a particular event occurs (for example, when the principal is no longer competent—perhaps due to a physical or mental illness). Defining exactly when a “springing” power of attorney is to become effective oftentimes can be very difficult. When do the powers of the attorney-in-fact end? The powers of the attorney-in-fact end whenever the principal revokes (cancels) the power of attorney. If the power of attorney document contains certain language, the powers of the attorney-in-fact will continue if the principal should become incompetent, but according to the law, the powers will end when the principal dies. What are some of the common uses of a power of attorney? As parents get older, they sometimes need help paying their bills and handling other banking matters. A parent can designate his or her child as attorney-in-fact rather than adding the child as an owner of a bank account. In addition, someone who plans to take an extended trip outside the country or who is recuperating from a long illness may wish to name a friend or relative as attorney-infact to pay bills or address property concerns.

As humans age, their tumor-fighting cells sometimes become less effective.

Bocce youth fund-raiser set for Oct. 24 at MVR

Investigative breakthrough Human immune cells may prove effective in treating tumors, study suggests FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

I

nvestigators have identified a new class of human immune cells that behave like stem cells. These cells, a subtype of T lymphocytes, which comprise a small fraction of white blood cells, may prove more effective than any previously reported type of T cell for treating tumors. The study, by scientists at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institute of Health, describes how these stem cell-like T cells can trigger a prolonged immune attack against tumor cells by continuously generating killer T cells and regenerating themselves. The findings were published online Sept. 18, 2011, in Nature Medicine. “It was known that such a T cell subset should theoretically exist in humans, and many groups have been hunting for these cells. Fortunately we were able to identify them. They are rare and elusive, comprising only 1 to 2 percent of T cells in most donor blood,” said lead investigator Nicholas P. Restifo, M.D., Center for Cancer Research, NCI. Many therapies currently used to treat patients with metastatic cancers only persist for short periods of time after administration. The type of living cell therapy described in this study could be capable of continually refreshing itself and able to integrate with a patients’ immune system for long periods of time and perhaps even permanently, continuing the fight against tumor cells, according to Restifo. All cells within an organism experience aging, and lymphocytes are no exception, explain the scientists. As T cells

INVESTIGATORS HAVE IDENTIFIED A NEW CLASS OF HUMAN IMMUNE CELLS THAT BEHAVE LIKE STEM CELLS, WHICH MAY PROVE EFFECTIVE FOR TREATING TUMORS. age, their ability to replicate themselves and respond to the challenge of a tumor or a pathogen becomes diminished. However, not all T cells age at the same rate. Chronic exposure to an antigen, a substance that triggers an immune response, can accelerate T cell aging. Yet even very old people, such as those age 100 years or older, have some T cells that are young. It was always believed that such a T cell subset must exist because humans who live for a very long time need to somehow replenish their defenses against cancer and infectious diseases. The problem is that the thymus – the organ responsible for generating new T-cells – essentially shuts down during adolescence. The researcher’s strategy was to study T cells that had many of the characteristics of very young immune cells (termed fully undifferentiated or naive). By looking at these very young T cells, the scientists were able to isolate ones that showed the first changes in gene expression that occur when lymphocytes make a memory response – that is, when they remember antigens they have seen previously and can quickly react to them. These stem cell-like memory cells had physical characteristics of very young immune cells. Stem cells have the potential to differentiate and become many different types of cells, which makes them extremely valuable.

“Because we identified the genetic characteristics of the stem cell-like T cells, we may be able to manipulate certain genes to regenerate younger T cells from older ones, and this has possible importance for regenerative medicine,” said first author, Luca Gattinoni, M.D., also with the Center for Cancer Research. This study built upon previous findings in mice, which showed that T cells acquire stem cell-like behavior when they are stimulated in the presence of drugs designed to mimic an important signaling pathway called Wnt, which the scientists used to generate and characterize candidate stem-cell-like T cells in humans. The scientists then studied blood samples from over 100 healthy human donors and cancer patients to confirm that these T cells naturally occur in human beings. They further discovered, in a humanized mouse model (a mouse that carries functioning human genes) that the stem cell-like T cells had rapid growth capacity and triggered more effective anti-tumor responses than any previously described T lymphocytes. NCI leads the National Cancer Program and the NIH effort to dramatically reduce the burden of cancer and improve the lives of cancer patients and their families, through research into prevention and cancer biology, the development of new interventions, and the training and mentoring of new researchers.

WINE GUY, FROM PAGE 18 mate Syrah just oozes plum and blueberry flavors. Slow-roasted pork loin would be a fine entrée with this tasty Syrah. Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road had a number of unusual offerings at their recent Second Saturday tastings. The Man Vintners 2010 Chenin Blanc (Steen) from South Africa is a fine alternative to everyday Chardonnays. Delicate honey and green apple flavors followed by a crisp, clean finish make this a fine choice with lighter-style food fare. If you’re still looking for something different, try the 2008 Ortman Sangiovese ($18.99) from Paso Robles, Calif. This is one of the nicest Sangioveses I’ve sampled coming from an area outside of Tuscany. Pasta and red meat sauce would be a fine partner for this tasty red. Vintage Estate Wine and Beer’s Third Saturday tasting started off with a Gerard Betrand Sauvignon Blanc from France ($10.99). Exotic citrus and melon flavors followed by a long mineral-tinged finish should go well with grilled chicken or buttery poached haddock. Another fine importer featured at this tasting was Jorge Ordonez from Spain. His 2009 Borsao Berola ($15.99) from the Campo de Borja region is simply grand. A blend of mostly Grenache with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon added for complexity, it exudes dark fruit flavors and finishes long and creamy. Try it with grilled meats or stews. Charlie’s Fine Wines in Howland featured the wines of Vintners Select distributors at his weekly Saturday tasting. At $14.99 a bottle, the 2010 Altivo Torrontes from Mendoza, Argentina is an exotic change of pace. Stainless tank fermented to preserve freshness, it offers citrus flavors followed by a floral finish that just lingers on. This would be a great choice for fruit salads. The Monterey County 2009 Vinum Pinot Noir is a real bargain at $14.99. Full, rich cherry and strawberry flavors followed by a long, textured finish will make you think you’re drinking a Pinot Noir at twice the price. Upcoming events include Wine and Dine Ohio’s events at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 at Salvatore’s Italian Grill in Howland, and at 6:30 Thursday, November 10 at Rachel’s Westchester restaurant in Austintown. To make a reservation or get on our email list for Wine and Dine Ohio event information, call 330-651-8676, or email jmwineguy@ gmail.com to provide your contact information. The Upstairs Restaurant will hold their renowned annual holiday tasting on Thursday, Nov. 17 – call the restaurant for more details. The Springfield Grille in Boardman and Five Points Wine and Bar will hold their monthly wine tastes – call those locations for more details. Other regular tastings include Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, every Saturday; Wine Styles, every other week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; and Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road, second Saturday tasting.

ith kids back in school and outdoor activities waning, September was a fine month for wine tastings. Springfield Grille’s monthly dinner taste featured locally grown organic produce, with wines from Superior Beverage. A 2007 Oak Knoll Winery Riesling from Oregon was chosen to go with an heirloom tomato and peach salad for course no. 1. Spicy honey and apple flavors were an interesting match for this tasty salad. Seared bay scallops drenched in a local corn beurre blanc (emulsified butter) sauce was paired to a 2010 Bodega Winery Chardonnay from Mendoza, Argentina. Medium bodied with crisp citrusy flavors, it was a fine pairing for the rich scallops. Our first red wine was a 2009 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Meritage. Springfield’s famous lamb slider (small sandwich) on Asiago ciabatta was just the answer for Mondavi’s juicy Bordeaux blend (41 percent Merlot, 35 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 11 percent Petit Verdot, 10 percent Malbec and 3 percent Cabernet Franc). Grilled skirt steak surrounded with organic roasted carrots and summer squash was offered with a sampling of 2004 Pietro Family Cellars’ Cabernet Sauvignon for our main course. Intense Cabernet fruit flavors and a full-bodied finish held up nicely to this dish. The dessert course was zabaglione (an Italian custard-like dish) with local crimson watermelon, plums and berries. This sweet fruit-laden dessert was a fine partner with the 2008 Ghost Pine Zinfandel from California. Jammy fruit flavors and a long supple finish made this a fine ending to the evening. The Valley’s next major wine event was Wine and Dine Ohio’s five-for-$15 wine taste at Austintown’s The Upstairs restaurant. Five great wines were paired to Chef Tim King’s fabulous food creations for a wonderful evening. Our first wine was the 2010 Dandelion Riesling from Eden Valley, Australia. Crisp mineral-laden citrus flavors were a fine match for the paccheri (hollow tube) pasta with shrimp smothered in a scallion cream sauce. If you’re a fan of Trocken (dry) style German Rieslings, give this tasty Eden Valley Riesling a try. Chef King’s signature Chicken Upstairs (boneless chicken breast topped with Maryland crabmeat and Swiss cheese) was paired to a 2009 Nannicola Chardonnay from California. Textbook citrus and apple flavors followed by a supple vanilla-tinged finish worked hand in hand with the chicken dish.

YNDC announces plans for farm on South Side

T

he Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation at press time was set to announce its plans to develop an urban farm and training facility at 820 Canfield Road in Youngstown. The farm’s name, Iron Roots Urban Farm, and a logo are to be unveiled at the site, located in the Idora neighborhood. The farm will serve as a citywide training facility for individuals participating in YNDC’s Market Gardener Training program, Green Jobs Training program, community garden education, and other agricultural, horticultural, and landscaping activities. The YNDC purchased the 2.5-acre property last June and began site preparation for the multi phase farm project. The first phase will include vegetable and fruit production fields, a small orchard, a greenhouse, vegetable chiller, and a solar photovoltaic system. Future phases are to include renovation of a vacant residential structure, which will serve as a community and education center. YNDC is developing a business plan to guide the facility’s development and ensure long term financial sustainability. “This facility will serve as a valuable resource for city residents to learn the skills necessary to ignite urban agriculture and vacant land reuse projects across the city,” said Presley L. Gillespie, YNDC executive director.“ For information on the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp., visit http://www.yndc.org/.

Peyko and the writers of the Metro Monthly create a portrait of their city through a beautifully rendered collection of vignettes. With stories of inventors, movie moguls, local cuisine and sports heroes, Peyko and company not only chronicle the history of Youngstown but also capture the essense of their home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remembering Youngstown - Tales from the Mahoning Valleyâ&#x20AC;? is now in its third printing, and makes a perfect gift for any occasion! Available at amazon.com, and fine booksellers everywhere.
