Looking Back Driving Towards Wedded Bliss - In 1940, the car edged out the girls' home as the most popular place to pop the question. Three of the most popular cars from the 1940s were the 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible Club Coupe, the 1946 ½ Ton Chevrolet Pick-Up and the 1948 Hudson Commodore.

From the February 3, 1940 issue of The Wooster Daily Record.

Local News January 2, 1940 – On Saturday afternoon while the Beck family, 647 North Buckeye Street, was at Akron, a burglar entered their home and got away with loot valued at $248. It included a diamond ring, a wrist watch, some old money and one or two other articles. Although there was plenty of snow about the premises, no tracks were visible when an investigation was made. Billy McFarland In Narrow Escape! Millersburg – Bill McFarland, ten year old son of Mrs. Margaret McFarland is recovering at his home from injuries sustained Saturday when sled riding. He was cut about the head and badly bruised from passing under the automobile of Paul Glasgo of South Monroe Sreet. He was coasting from the city park onto the Monroe Street incline and failed to see the approaching car, nor did the driver see him. He passed under the car on his sled and was dragged about 20 feet. Dr. A.J. Earney is attending physician.

January 4, 1940 – Hen Goes Outdoors To Hatch Chickens in Mt. Hope – William Rothacher has a hen that hid her nest in the orchard and laid 15 eggs. Then she came to the house with her family of 15 chicks all in fine condition. Bill wants to know who can beat that with a walking incubator this time of year in such cold weather. February 3, 1940 – A study of 1,181 proposals of marriage conducted by the Institute of Family Relations reveals that when boy pops the big question to girl, its one chance in four they are seated in his car. Twenty-three percent of marriage proposals take place in the girls' home, which formerly held a big lead over all other proposal sites. Twenty percent of the proposals are made in public places such as the street, parks, on a campus or at a restaurant, the survey shows. Thirteen percent of the “will you be mine?” queries occur on vacation trips while traveling. Only six out of every 100 proposals are made via telegram.

Treat Yourself Reduce Your Stress

hen was the last time you treated yourself to something special? The daily grind sometimes is exhausting. In fact, a poll from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health found that 49 percent of Americans reported having a major stressful event or experience in the past year, and 26 percent of people said they had a "great deal" of stress. In small amounts, stress can push a person to act and grow. But constant stress can become debilitating and has been linked to a compromised immune system and other unhealthy side effects. This is why a number of people resolve to reduce stress. In addition to taking on fewer responsibilities, engaging in some activities to promote a relaxed mind and body can help alleviate stress and tension. Though the term "pampering" may not appeal to everyone, a day of pampering might be just what you need to relieve stress and unwind. · Get a full-body massage. Licensed massage therapists have the training and knowledge to work the kinks out of

your muscles and ease aches and pains. Massage therapy works tension out of the body and can help release feelgood endorphins. A massage can improve circulation and help reduce blood pressure. It's difficult to walk out of a spa without feeling relaxed. · Schedule a manicure and pedicure appointment. If you do not have time for a full massage, having your hands and feet pampered can be a good substitute. Manicures and pedicures are not just for ladies, either. Men can indulge and opt for no nail polish. Many salons offer different types of manicures and pedicures, depending on personal preference. Spa treatments may include warm paraffin wax or hot stones to further ease pain and enhance the pleasure of the experience. · Another great way to reduce stress is to sing. Singing can both be a tranquilizer and a way to elevate the spirits. Studies reveal that endorphins associated with feelings of pleasure may be released when singing. Oxytocin, which can reduce feelings of depression and loneliness, also may be released while singing. Thanks to its psychological and physical benefits, singing may help prolong one's life. Singing exercises the lungs and

heart, releases endorphins and is usually done in a social setting. In some studies, singers were found to have lower levels of cortisol, indicating lower stress. · Take a retreat. Schedule a trip to a resort or even a small hotel that is away from the hustle and bustle of where you live. Such a respite can provide a welcome change. New scenery and a chance to escape the daily grind can effectively relieve stress. Consider lowtech accommodations and turn your phone or tablet off for a few days. · Try relaxing aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils to elicit mental and physical responses. Lavender is a relaxing scent that can be used during a massage or in baths to induce a sense of calm. Experiment with other scents and oils to achieve the desired result. · Stop in at the bookstore and browse. Pick up an old favorite off your own shelf at home to revisit, or buy a new book you've been dying to start, and cuddle up in your favorite corner to unwind. · Sometimes there is nothing more relaxing than taking a good, long soak in the tub. This can tie into using aromatherapy. Light some candles and bring yourself into a quiet, relaxing space to help quiet your mind as you go over the events of the day (or week) in a calming atmosphere. · Have a spa night party at home instead of going out to the salon – have it right there in your own living room. Whether it's homemade facials or just a nice relaxing peppermint soak for your feet, this will give you time be calm and reconnect with friends. · Plan a night where you can go out for drinks and conversation or huddle around the television with your friends and watch your favorite comedy. Laughter is often a great medicine for stress, as is the company of other people who can provide some comic relief. Take the time to treat yourself. Even if you just take five or ten minutes out of each day to do something that you find interesting, you can begin to fight the negative effects of stress. It will refill your energy tank and this renewed energy will carry forward into whatever you do.

The Oscars

Can I Go to the Oscars Without Making a Movie? Article by RANDY WILSON NOW & THEN CONTRIBUTOR

E

ach January, the entertainment community and film fans around the world turn their attention to the Academy Awards. Interest and anticipation builds to a fevered pitch leading up to the Oscar telecast in February, when hundreds of millions of movie lovers tune in to watch the glamorous ceremony and learn who will receive the highest honors in filmmaking. Have you ever wondered how you could attend the Oscars without making a movie? Whether you are a filmmaker or not there is just something exciting about the Academy Awards. This is the pinnacle of

Now & Then • 8

what Hollywood stands for and who among us can say they have never imagined what it would be like to be there? Can the average person actually attend the Oscars?

ABSOLUTELY YOU CAN! If attending the Academy Awards is on your bucket list and you just don't have an award winning film lying around or a friendly neighborhood A-lister in your contact list then the best way to be a part of the excitement is to be an extra to fill seats in the theatre or to fill the sidelines along the red carpet. Here is how you make that happen:


The Academy Awards is a show that takes place on a stage at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood. It is also a show that is taking place for the television cameras for the audience at home. This means that everyone in the audience at that theatre is also a performer and that the seats in the theatre need to stay filled even when the celebrities need to go to the bathroom or take a break. The show producers accomplish this by hiring seat fillers. And by "hiring" I mean "finding volunteers" because you won't be getting any money. The same goes for the fans alongside the red carpet. Becoming an extra is not difficult, but it does take a little work. First you will need to register with a website that does the casting. Seat fillers are usually cast through seatfiller. com or audiencesunlimited.com. Fans along the red carpet can be cast through 1iota.com. Registering is free and you can create a profile with demographic information so the event producers can figure out what kind of crowd they are putting together. When you apply to be an extra for the Academy Awards, you aren't automatically in the running just because you registered with the website- you have to put your hat in the ring to be considered for the Academy Awards. If you are applying to be a fan along the red carpet this involves writing a short essay, submitting photos of yourself, and submitting to a criminal background check. They are looking for attractive people who are low maintenance and high enthusiasm. Attractive means well dressed and not distracting- you're not going to "pull focus" away from the celebrities. Low maintenance means you'll stand quietly for long periods of time, go where you are told, and not complain or disrupt the production (that includes not trying to chat with the celebrities). High enthusiasm means that even after standing quietly and being herded around like cattle you can still smile, clap, and cheer when the cameras roll. Hit the submit button and wait. If you are being considered they will send you the paperwork for the criminal background check that you will need to fill

out and send back. You'll also need to provide a face shot to go on your credentials if they accept you. Then wait some more. If they select you then you should receive an email saying that your information has been sent to the security people to be turned into the aforementioned credentials. This is the time to let them know if you are NOT able to attend for some reason. Filling a seat is not as easy as "filling a seat". If you're not fortunate enough to do that, you can always try getting a ticket to one of the many after parties but that usually requires knowing someone... that and about $3,000! With a lot of work it is possible to attend the Academy Awards without ever making a movie. Although it's too late for this year's show, keep this in mind for next season. For all of us who won't be attending either the ceremony or a party, we can still imagine that the carpet down the center asile of the theatre is red as we watch larger than life celebrities on the big screen in this year's nominees. Who will win the Best Actress... Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, Isabelle Huppert, Ruth Negga or Natalie Portman? Who will win Best Actor... Casey Affleck, Andrew Garfield, Ryan Gosling, Viggo Mortensen or Denzel Washington? What will win the Best Picture of the Year..."Arrival", "Fences", "Hacksaw Ridge", "Hell or High Water", "Hidden Figures", "La La Land", "Lion", "Manchester By the Sea" or "Moonlight"? The winners will be announced on Sunday, February 26th.

Restoration Thrift

Partners with O-Huddle Mentoring

Article & Photos by EMILY RUMES NOW & THEN WRITER

W

ith it's soft opening this past September and recent grand opening in January, Restoration Thrift store in Orrville is ready for donations and volunteers as they partner with O-Huddle Mentoring in Wooster and Orrville City Schools. O-Huddle is a mentoring program that brings together families and faith based organizations, businesses and others to mentor students, support our local schools and build strong communities. The mentoring is focused not just on academics, but on the student as a whole. The programs are started based on need and over the past year, O-Huddle Fulltime employee Cherlyn Schlabach goes has expanded from Wooster through the incoming donations.

into Orrville. Students can find help with things like homework, but they can also find help with the issues that are worrying or concerning them on a daily basis. Right now there are roughly 150 students being served by O-Huddle in the two school districts. Mentoring empowers the students by giving them the support and the time they need, and each student is seen as valuable, as someone to be invested in. Restoration Thrift Manager Adam Miller knows from a background in ministry support that non-profit organizations like O-Huddle cannot exist without financial sustainability. The positive impact on the lives of children and students in the


community is what drove the decision to open up Restoration Thrift, which is run by a board, a staff of employees and volunteers. “Allowing kids to connect one-onone with a mentor is so important,” said Miller. “The impact on their lives is crucial—it matters.” The primary goal or Restoration Thrift is to fund kids and youth ministries both locally and nationally. The store takes in items at their donation space located next to the store. The donation area is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and they will also do local pick-ups for larger donated items that are called in. Anyone who has questions about donating or would like to set up a pick-up can call 330-231-8577. The store is spacious and clean

and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Most weeks there will be a sale color for items that will be 50% off. The best place to stay up-todate on new items and weekly specials is the Restoration Thrift Facebook page. The overall aesthetic for the store is an industrial theme. Putting together the space was a group effort being driven by the board, who had the initial vision, plus lots of help and donated volunteer would depend on how much time they are able to be there, supplies along the way. Shoppers will find bargains on but it can be short term or long term. household items, clothing, books, Restoration Thrift is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Their goal is to be part of the local “huddle” and work together to support students and families in their faith. They look forward to seeing the mentoring program grow with support through sales from their store. For more information on how you can volunteer or to stop in and find some amazing deals, you can visit the store located at 351 Hostetler Road in Orrville (right next to the toys, home goods, furniture and Save-A-Lot). Regular hours are electronics. The store has a huge Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. selection of Henn Pottery in stock to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. right now and in addition to the sale to 5:00 p.m. Their website is still in items each week, they have a special the works, but you can find basic clearance rack and items with information at RestorationThrift. com or call 330-231-8577. discounts are always in rotation. “We wanted to have time to organize before we had our grand opening,” Miller said. “We are really enjoying being a part of the community.” Right now Restoration Thrift is looking for volunteers to help with sorting the products that come in.

Car Tips

Car Rental Tips Save Time & Money

M

any people resolve to enjoy life to the fullest, and that may involve indulging in new experiences and traveling to different locales. The United States Travel Association says nearly four out of five domestic trips taken are for leisure, and 1.7 billion person-trips, or travel taken by a person away from home overnight to places 50 miles away or more, were logged in 2015. Ground transportation remains one of the most popular means of getting around. People who choose not to use their own vehicles for travel often find that a rental vehicle suits their purposes and can be quite convenient. Consumers seeking a rental car can ensure their travel plans go smoothly with these tips. • Travel off-season. Not only might travelers save on

Now & Then • 16

airline tickets, hotel accommodations and more when traveling off-season, but they also can save on rental cars. For example, according to the Abrams Travel Data Index, consumers can expect to pay 56 percent less in March for a rental car than they would renting the same vehicle in July. • Know what you want. Before renting, decide which type of vehicle will best fit your needs. If you’re traveling with children, you may need a van or a large sedan, rather than a compact car. If travel includes certain hobbies, such as skiing or bicycle riding, look for a rental with a ski or bike rack — or one that can fit such accessories. Those concerned with the environment may want to rent an eco-friendly model. • Shop around. Major car rental agencies are located


all over the world. However, depending on where you travel, locally owned companies may offer comparable service and lower rates. Lower operating costs (think no franchise fees or big advertising budgets) mean these rentals typically cost 15 to 30 percent less than rentals from mainstream agencies. Research lesser-known rental companies beforehand to compare prices and read any reviews to see if these businesses are up to the standards of larger, better-known chains. • Avoid renting from an airport. It may be convenient to step off a plane and grab a rental right there. However, rental car agencies operating at airports may pass on airport surcharges to their customers. Try a car rental service away from the airport and take a shuttle or cab to get there. • Understand mileage caps. According to Angie’s List, some rental car companies offer unlimited miles for a rental period, while others may employ mileage caps. Read the fine print of the agreement, especially if you’ll be using the rental for long-distance driving.

Leave those House Hassles behind. Come home to West View! “We Are A Great Plan For Your Future.”

• Ask about membership affiliation. Inquire about discounts for any major national organizations, frequent flier programs and credit card programs to which you may belong. If you’re employed by a company that frequently rents cars, they may have a negotiated rate for employees. • Investigate insurance coverage. You may be able to decline extra insurance coverage at the rental desk. Some personal automotive policies will cover collision damage and personal liability for temporary use of a rental car, according to MileCards.com, a travel rewards card comparison website. What is not covered by your insurance may be covered by secondary insurance offered by the credit card used at booking. Rental cars are a major component of travel. Consumers can save money and make trips even easier by understanding some of the basics of renting.

Snowman Story by EMILY RUMES NOW & THEN WRITER

Remembering Snowman

“The Cinderella Horse”

G

rowing up we lived in town and there was not much room in our backyard for a horse. The cost of feeding and taking care of one just wasn't something our family could afford, but I was able to live the life of a horsewoman in my imagination, through books. Most of my summer days were spent at the Dalton library reading The Black Stallion series by Walter Farley and books on the great Man o' War and the history of races like the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Whether fictionalized or not, these stories brought my mind to

Now & Then • 18

life and helped me to develop a deep love for horses and an appreciation for their complex intelligence and independent spirit. I was reminded of that love and appreciation when I recently heard about the story of Snowman, “the Cinderella Horse”, and his owner, Harry De Leyer. In the years before he came to the United States, Harry De Leyer grew up in Holland and learned how to ride horses from his father on their family farm. When World War II came, the De Leyer family worked as part of the local resistance, hiding and protecting people from the


the age of 26 on Harry's farm. When the difficult decision was made for Snowman to be humanely euthanized in 1974, due to kidney failure and other complications, the only person he would go to when it was time to come out of the barn, was Harry. Harry and Snowman shared an inspiring life together, and as it was coming to an end, Snowman wanted to be with his friend. With all the success and all the fame they shared, Harry knew that the most important thing was their relationship. Harry had saved Snowman and in return Snowman had saved him right back. To learn more about the story of Snowman, you can read the New York Times Best Seller, The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired A Nation, written by Elizabeth Letts. You can also see a documentary film called Harry & Snowman, directed by Ron Davis, which came out in 2015 and is available right now on Netflix. Harry De Leyer, now 88, is still working and training show jumpers today, passing on his knowledge and his love for the sport to future generations.

enemy by concealing them in secret underground areas beneath hay stacks and manure and compost piles on their farm. One day during the war, a group of Allied Airborne Army paratroopers landed in their village and one of the young men died. Harry De Leyer's wife saw to it that the American soldier was buried and that flowers were placed on his grave. She made contact with the soldier's family back in the states and although they had never met, the family decided to bring the De Leyers to the United States and have them work on their farm. Once they were in the states for a few years, Harry got a job working as a riding instructor for a the prestigious Knox School in Long Island New York. It was while he was at the school that he decided to go to a horse auction in Pennsylvania. Harry had been running late that day and by the time he got to the auction, many of the horses that hadn't sold were being loaded up to be taken away to the slaughter house. He paid $80 for a horse that caught his eye, one that was ready to be sent away, and took him home to the school. The horse was unique. He named him Snowman and the temperament and fierce loyalty that the horse displayed quickly made him a favorite, like part of the family. Snowman even jumped the fence at the neighbors farm when Harry had tried to sell him to a friend up the road.The horse kept returning home no matter how high they made the fence or what they tried to do to stop him. It seemed there wasn't a fence high enough to stop Snowman, and that gave Harry an idea. Slowly, over a period of about 6 months, Harry worked with Snowman and trained him as a jumper. They won their first competition on the local level and continued winning - jumping towards stardom together and eventually reaching the national stage at Madison Square Garden. Snowman went from being an Amish plow horse, destined for his demise, to being the Show Jumping Triple Crown Winner in 1958. He made the rounds with Harry appearing on television shows throughout the 1960s, including “To Tell The Truth” and “Who Do You Trust?” with Johnny Carson. The pride and joy that they both felt and the way in which rider and horse perfectly complemented one another made them something amazing to see. Harry even worked in new, exciting challenges for Snowman, being one of the few horses who could jump over another horse, and pushing him to try to set a new record for the highest jump. Snowman eventually went into retirement and lived until

his time of year brings to mind evenings spent warming by the fire, after a long day in the bitter cold. One way to enjoy these brisker temperatures is skiing, which can trace its origins to what is now Norway and Sweden. Cave paintings dating back to 5000 B.C. illustrate a skier with one pole in the Nordland region of Norway, while remnants of a primitive ski were found in Hoting, Sweden. The term "ski" was actually derived from the Norse word "skio," meaning "split piece of wood." It is generally believed skiing evolved from snowshoeing, and the ski poles were developed from the walking sticks snowshoers used for balance. Skiing was initially a method of efficient transportation over the snow. The first skis were likely similar to the cross-country skis used today. Skiing as a sport came much later, and it wasn't until the mid- to late-nineteenth century that downhill skiing developed.
