A new place with a new name By Katherine Ryder • Editor

I

n any stage of life I feel like the duration is marked, defined as the progress or accomplishment a person makes with it. Almost as if it can only be deemed worthwhile and productive if they have left a piece of themselves behind, if there is continued growth long after the stage has passed. Over the past two years, since graduating college and embarking on my first official job, I’ve been monitoring how things have changed and how different my life would be if I had chosen a different path – a variant of my final choices. Fresh out of college, anxious and excited, I started at Spectrum Publications in Wooster with an air of uncertainty. I was afraid that I couldn’t succeed in what everyone was telling me was now “the real world.” I had faith, don’t get me wrong, that everything was going to work out how it was supposed to. I knew that there would be ups and downs, that I’d make mistakes and be unavoidably human. But when I walked through the doors on my first day, the nerves overtook and I couldn’t at that time realize that I was falling into the exact place I was meant to be. Now at the peak of my comfort and content a new adventure is knocking. It always seems that (as the turn of phrase goes) “when it rains, it pours” has been the motto for my life – in blessings and in disappointments. This is no different. When my fiancé, Brendan, proposed last July and we decided on a June 30 wedding date, we thought we were covering all of our bases and ensuring that we would be providing a smooth transition into married life. He was set to graduate from his master’s program in May and job hunt afterward, while I worked around other commitments that come with the summer season. What we didn’t expect was for him to land a job before the wedding – thus the rain started. With a great opportunity on the horizon and wedding preparations piling, the past few weeks have been in a word...insane. I’ve been told (repeatedly) that the most stressful moments in a person’s life are: getting married, starting a job and moving. One, check. Two, check. Three...check. I always knew that relocating was an almost certain possibility with his field. I even expected it to happen shortly into our marriage. But when Quincy University called to offer him the job on June 5 it hit. People often talk about their relationships with their coworkers and their bosses. Many of them even go as far to acknowledge a closeness, a family unit that they find. It comes as no shock to me when that’s the case. These are, afterall, the people that we spend the majority of our time with, outside of our parents and spouses. There are so many things that I count as blessings in my life, so many ways in which I’m fortunate. This job has been a blessing. I’ve been able to meet many wonderful and interesting people, learn about another culture, hear stories from generations passed, build relationships and expand my resumé all the while doing something that I love. As I begin to transition yet again from the familiar to the unknown I want to thank all of the people that have offered support, encouragement, laughter, challenges and so many memories. And of course, thank you to the many dedicated readers of Spectrum Publications’ products. Without them, nothing I have done would have been possible. In this moment. In this stage. My time has been marked. Whether I have accomplished anything or progressed myself is not for me to say. In time I’ll know if my moment was worthwhile to anyone else, but to me...I have grown in ways I wouldn’t have otherwise. Now it’s bittersweet – the adventure with the leaving. I have left a piece of myself with you all, whether you keep it or not is up to you.

Canton Classic Car Museum offering so much more than great cars By Katherine Ryder • Editor

C

har Lautzenheiser, director of Canton Classic Car Museum, began working in her ideal location more than 26 years ago; however, that wasn’t the first time she stepped inside the doors. The Canton Classic Car Museum was established by the late Marshall Belden, Sr. in 1978. The museum currently exhibits forty-five rare and unusual classic and special interest automobiles. The gorgeous vehicles are complemented by the thousands of pieces of historical memorabilia displayed throughout the museum. The Canton Classic Car Museum has something for everyone: automobilia, vintage toys, steam engines, movie posters, historic photography, oriental rugs, Meyer’s Lake Park and Canton historical displays. The list goes on and on. As an only child, Lautzenheiser’s father was a car guy and she often describes her childhood as the best of both worlds, 6

“I learned about cars from my dad and cooking from my mom.” Cars in general have never not been a part of her life, Lautzenheiser explained. Even when Lautzenheiser took notice to how it affected her relationship with other women, finding that it wasn’t normal to have a fascination for such machinery; still, Lautzenheiser can’t help it. She just loves cars.


In recent years, the economy issues has placed a decline in traveling. Lautzenheiser has noticed that local tourism is increasing along with larger groups by motor coach. “Because of all of the economy issues, people are vacationing in their own backyards,” Lautzenheiser said. “It’s been a blessing to us in the long run, because our local community is noticing

us when they didn’t as much before.” Above all, she wants people to understand that Canton Classic Car Museum is so much more than great cars. “There have been times when wives have come with their husbands and waited in the car because they thought all we have is cars,” Lautzenheiser said. “I’ve gone out and brought them in to AMISH HEARTLAND

My favorite aspect of the business is seeing the surprise of people. You watch them and see them recognize something that brings back a piece of their childhood.

prove that we are so much more than that. We have history. We have nostalgia. We have antiques, and I think they need to experience that.” When a visitor steps into Canton Classic Car Museum, they have stepped into a collision of different eras. Lautzenheiser said that there is something for everyone, and it’s true. “My favorite aspect of the business is seeing the surprise of people,” she said. “You watch them and see them recognize something that brings back a piece of their childhood.” One of her goals for the future is to make the museum more of a handson visit, where guests can interact and experience the history in a new aspect. “It’s all in what you make it,” Lautzenheiser said. “I have kids that come in here and tell me museums are boring. I tell them that they’re boring.” One of the most important fragments of our personalities has been lost over time – Lautzenheiser describes that as our imaginations. In an age where everything is handed to us at our convenience, the next generation isn’t challenged to imagine a different time, a different place other than their own. “There are stories to be told here,” Lautzenheiser said. “How incredible is that?” Canton Classic Car Museum is located at 612 Market Ave. South in Canton. Standard business hours are SundaySaturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission 8

rates: Adults/$7.50 (18 and up); Seniors (60 and up)/$6; Youth (5-17)/$5; Children (4 and under)/$3. Discount group rates are available. Closed New Years, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The extensive gift shop also has something for everyone including model cars, T-shirts, jackets, puzzles, ties, jewelry and more. The gift shop is open during museum hours.

2012 Berlin Amish Country Half Marathon & 5K Race By Katherine Ryder • Editor

O

n Saturday, Nov. 24 at 9 a.m. competitors will take off in the first annual Berlin Amish Country Half Marathon and 5k Race. The most unique factor about this event is the setting. The 5k and half marathon are both run on township and country roads of Ohio’s Amish Country. Mark Fowler, marketing director for Zinck’s Inn in Berlin, has expressed his enthusiasm for the uniqueness of this race. “We have such a catch for this event,” Fowler said. “We don’t have to build a festival to have a race, we already have what we need. There are so many options to choose from...people can go anywhere to race, they don’t always have this option.” Runners, their family, their friends, other visitors and local community members will be welcomed into Berlin starting Friday, Nov. 23. At that time Zinck’s Inn will host an expo for the runners to come and pick up their numbers and their packet of information. Packets will include material from sponsors and everything they’ll need to know for the event. All registration for the race is done online. Along with the opportunity, the runners and their family are also given a Thanksgiving meal at one of the three local restaurants in downtown Berlin: Cindy’s Diner, Farmstead Restaurant and Boyd & Wurthmann Restaurant. They can decide to eat Friday or Saturday. Fowler, along with many others who are organizing this 12

event, is striving to provide traditional Amish specialties; another unique quality to this event. Fowler said that a large percentage of the downtown and local community have participated in making the Berlin Amish Country Half Marathon and 5k Race a success. The race will begin at Perry Reese and finish on the Hiland High School track, with an elevation gain in the last four miles. Along the half marathon course, runners will pass 30 Amish businesses. Fowler is anticipating 250 runners; however wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that. “The half marathon in Canton for Hartville has reached 4,000 runners over three years,” Fowler said. “That makes me a little nervous because we definitely couldn’t handle that many at this time.” Friday, Nov. 23 is the last day participants can register. For prices and more information visit www. runinamishcountry.com. The event began to manifest itself after Alan Zinck, owner of Zinck’s Inn, starting mentioning the idea. According to Fowler, Mr. Zinck is a runner himself, participating in marathons. Primarily he was looking for a way to extend the tourism season, but also knew that there wasn’t a race during this time of year available in the area. “I think the one thing Holmes County has been able to prove is that when we do an event we do it right,” Fowler said. “Our area will benefit from this. “Marathon” continued on page 42

HAVE A “MISSION” THIS SUMMER M

26

ission furniture was a name first coined by Joseph McHugh, a New York furniture manufacturer and retailer, to describe his line of straight line rustic style furniture that he began producing in 1895. The mission style furniture design was based on a chair that had been designed for the Swedenborgian Church of New Jerusalem in San Francisco. The word “mission” references the Spanish missions throughout colonial California. The style became increasingly popular following the PanAmerican Exposition in Buffalo in 1901. Mission furniture caught on as a generic term for the style of furniture and also the European term “arts and crafts” was used. Mission style is a design that emphasizes simple horizontal and vertical lines and flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood (usually oak). This style was also part of the Arts and Crafts movement which was inspired by the writings of John Ruskin and

the romanticism that surrounded craftsmen that took pride in his own personal handiwork. The Arts and Crafts movement occurred both with the British and in the Americas, and it is great to know that furniture that dated back into such important eras of history are still popular today. The irony of the mission style furniture icon of the Arts and Crafts movement has been reversed of its original meaning in that it is now mass produced and merchandised, and thus loosing some of its uniqueness that people originally sought. Nevertheless, it is still a beautiful piece of furniture designed as such to add nice lines and art to a person’s home. By recognizing the mission style, homeowner’s recognize the style that has lasted through the times. Mission arts and crafts has blended well from the 19th century all the way to the current 21st century in terms of interior design and décor. Characterized by clean, straight lines, geometric shapes, natural elements and handcrafted pieces, common materials associated with this decorating style include wrought iron, stained glass and hardwood.

Pine Cone Gift Shop

’’

celebrating one year anniversary By Katherine Ryder • Editor

P

ine Cone Gift Shop is not your everyday, run of the mill, boutique. Nestled along Kidron Road, just outside of Orrville, this shop offers a vast collection of floral décor, accessories and items for the home. Annette Hodkinson, owner, admits that she is a garden and floral lover, which is evident when customers walk into the shop. The mixture of potpourri, doilies, candles, wreaths, potted ornaments and lawn décor encompasses the visitor as they peruse through. Hodkinson opened the doors about a year ago because she believed people were looking for more permanent items for their homes. “Times have changed,” Hodkinson said. “I have always loved retail and customer service and I thought I could provide something that customers would really enjoy.” One of Hodkinson’s goals is to have people walk in and have an enjoyable time, even if they don’t buy. Part of the ordering process includes bringing items in that customers will appreciate, all the while maintaining the atmosphere Hodkinson is working toward for the store. “When I’m ordering I think about what the current trends are and what I like,” Hodkinson said. “I’m just a small shop so I have the freedom to carry more of what I think other people will enjoy rather than stocking with some other items.” Hodkinson admits that her favorite 32

aspect of the business is attending gift shows, visiting other gift shops and buying products. Those times allow her to broaden her own creativity and accumulate different ideas for what she can offer her customers. Having only been settled one year, Hodkinson still finds it difficult to get the word out for Pine Cone Gift Shop, believing that the first year to the first year and a half are always the hardest. However, she maintains sales and discounts continuously as an initiative to keep traffic coming to the store. “I have a lot of return customers,” Hodkinson said. “The initial goal is to get the word out, because I believe word of mouth is the best advertising. I have the support of the community, but it takes a long time to build a name up for “Pine” continued on page 42

your business.” As part of her long-term goals, Hodkinson would like to get a website up and running, both to participate in online orders and as another tool to increase the familiarity with her business.

Individuals may bring in vases, swatches or just their ideas and she can create what they are looking for. Pine Cone Gift Shop is located at 2877 Kidron Rd. in Orrville. The business 42

I also think this will help us reach a new demographic. We have been looking for a way to bring the younger generations to Holmes County; this will give them a chance to see what mom and dad have been talking about...that we are a destination.” Three of the water stations are located at Amish schools, yet another quality that makes this half marathon event unique. Fowler also emphasizes not just the beauty, but the way of life that runners will witness along their journey. “I know how Amish families love an event,” Fowler said. “I definitely see this as one they will want to gather and experience.” Two important items that Fowler wanted to address was the deadline for sponsorship, Nov. 1, and volunteer opportunities. Fowler urges sponsors to have their information turned in by Nov. 1 so the team of helpers can have the packets organized and ready to hand out on the day of the event. Also, Fowler expressed that anyone who would be interested in volunteering with the preparation and coordination for that day may contact him at (330) 466-2705. Proceeds for the 2012 Berlin Amish Country Half Marathon and 5k will go to East Holmes Fire Department and Berlin Main Street Merchants.
