Looking Back


From the August 8, 1952 Wooster Daily Record, “A view of Wooster motel, as its attractiveness becomes apparent to east-bound travelers on Route 30.”


These buildings that were a motel back in 1952 are now Lincolnway East Rentals, still sitting all in a row with more trees and greenery around them today.

Local News July 3, 1952 – Final details are being formulated for Wooster's annual fireworks display at Severance stadium Friday evening, which will be free to the public. This type of Fourth of July celebration was inaugurated some 20 years ago in Wooster, designed to provide an outstanding display, early in the evening for the benefit of children. Fireworks displays at summer resorts in the area, as everywhere else, are usually held off until late at night to hold the crowd. Wooster's display, as in earlier years will get under way as soon as darkness envelopes the stadium. July 5, 1952 – Aided and abetted by a superb performance of the weatherman, Orrville's Fourth of July celebration Friday, attended by a total of about 7,000 persons turned out to be a highly successful event. Climax of the day's program was the big display of fireworks last night, while immediately preceding it the town's crack team the Orr Parks, added to the day's thrills by winning the championship game of the softball tournament, defeating Marshallville 5 to 3 in the 11 inning game. Nearly 4,000 persons were on hand for the final ball game and fireworks. The event was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.

July 28, 1952 – Monkey-faced owls are not common in this area, but there is a family of them at the Wayne County Children's Home. One is living high in the barn on the farm. Rolland Ross, the farmer there, discovered the birds, noting their unusual type. Daily Record Photographer Eleanor Franks climbed high on baled straw to get near the owls as they were hiding. August 11, 1952 – Quick action by a passerby and neighbors is credited with saving a barn and most of its contents owned by Ralph Swartzwalder from destruction by fire on State Rt. 3 in Big Prairie. Lightning traveling along electric wires during a storm Saturday started a small blaze and killed a cow in the barn. An unidentified motorist saw the fire and called Shreve Fire dept. The motorist and neighbors had extinguished the blaze when firemen arrived. Swartzwalder and his wife and children, Lois and Blanche, were on a vacation trip to Pennsylvania. Carl Lake is a neighbor to the farm located at the foot of Rose Hill.

Americana in the Movies Article by RANDY WILSON NOW & THEN CONTRIBUTOR


lthough the 4th of July has passed by the time you are reading this, here’s a look at movie favorites to celebrate that most American of holidays, Independence Day. First are classic films in black and white that are so patriotic you can almost see the red, white and blue color and secondly are patriotic films that were made in color. Hopefully there will be one or two new films to add to your list of favorites. Red, White and Blue in Black and White “Yankee Doodle Dandy” (1942) - A musical portrait of composer/singer/dancer George M. Cohan. From his early days as a child star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows. Cohan personally chose James Cagney to play him in the film. The famous tap dance down the staircase at the end was not in the script but completely ad-libbed by Cagney. (Think you could do it?…I know I couldn’t!) Cagney broke a rib while filming another dance scene but kept going until the scene was finished. This was also the first film to depict a living U.S. president.

“Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” - Jean Arthur, James Stewart and Claude Rains star in Frank Capra's awardwinning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small town senator who heads to Washington and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him. When Capra decided to film the novel The Gentleman from Montana, he ran into an obstacle. Director Rouben Mamoulian owned the rights to the story. Unwilling to sell, Mamoulian eventually traded the material to Columbia on the condition that he be allowed to direct another film. It was suggested that Gary Copper, the star of “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town”, take the lead. Capra selected Jimmy Stewart instead and the film solidified Stewart's movie career, garnering him his first Academy Award nomination. Receiving a total of eleven 1939 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), and winning one (Best Motion Picture Story), “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” is considered one of Capra's, Stewart's and Columbia's finest films. It also marked the end of an era. It was Capra's final film for the studio. “Let Freedom Ring” (1939) - Combines Nelson Eddy's fine baritone voice with its message of religious and ethnic tolerance, “Let Freedom Ring” distinguishes itself as a most unusual western. While boasting its share of bad guys and two-fisted action, this ambitious film delivers a powerful and heartfelt message. The setting is the west circa 1868. The villain is the land grabbing railroad, personified by

smooth-talking tycoon Jim Knox (Edward Arnold). Knox finally meets his match, however, when he comes up against leathery rancher Tom Logan (Lionel Barrymore) and Logan's Harvard graduate son, Steve (Eddy). Cast in his first "solo" role - with no singing stars opposite him - Eddy excels as the prodigal son who returns home to save the day. Directed by Jack Conway and scripted by Ben Hecht (The Front Page), “Let Freedom Ring” features an array of clever plot twists and rousing songs woven smoothly into the story. “The Howards of Virginia” (1940) - With its straightforward retelling of events leading up to the American Revolution, “The Howards of Virginia” is a standard slice of patriotism from Hollywood's golden age. Adapted by noted screenwriter Sidney Buchman from Elizabeth Page's 1939 bestseller Tree of Liberty, this colonial melodrama is notorious for saddling Cary Grant with one of his most ill-fitting roles, and it's true that Grant's 20th-century style clashes with his portrayal of buckskinned rebel Matt Howard. Still, his performance is far from being "really bad", and Martha Scott brings tenacious dignity to her role as Howard's pragmatic wife, who defies her aristocratic family to join her new husband in the wilderness of Ohio. The stirrings of rebellion clash with some thankfully outmoded Hollywood clichés (such as Howard's initial rejection of his mildly disabled son), but overall this remains a respectable and altogether engaging historical adventure, encompassing the early career of Thomas Jefferson and noteworthy for its meticulous attention to period detail. “The Devil’s Disciple” (1959) - The third of seven films screen legends Burt Lancaster (Run Silent, Run Deep) and Kirk Douglas (Cast a Giant Shadow) have appeared together in is a satirical take on the American Revolution by George Bernard Shaw (My Fair Lady), boasting a cutting performance from acting great Laurence Olivier (Rebecca). When Dick Dudgeon (Douglas) learns his father was executed by the British for treason at the onset of the Revolutionary War, he steals the body for a proper burial, ignoring the pleas of his friend, Minister Anthony Anderson (Lancaster) who's a peace-loving person who ends up becoming a belligerent firebrand of a rebel trying to save Dudgeon's life. Adapted for the screen by John Dighton (Roman Holiday) and Richard Kibbee (Vera Cruz) and featuring strong direction by James Bond veteran Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger). “Rosalie” (1937) - Nelson Eddy's rich baritone, Eleanor Powell's astonishing footwork and songs by Cole Porter

- what more could a musical fan wish for? Wrapped in a deliciously preposterous story concerning a Balkan princess, a West Point football hero, a daring solo flight across the Atlantic, court intrigue and star-crossed romance, Rosalie lured huge film audiences with its knockout blend of top cast (including future The Wizard of Oz co-stars Ray Bolger and Frank Morgan) and magnificent music. Eddy sings two evergreen Porter songs: the haunting In the Still of the Night and the title tune, reprised to feature Powell at her most dazzling in a number that defines spectacle: a 60-acre, 27-camera, 2000-people paragon of screen-filling wow. “George Washington Slept Here” (1941) - Manhattanites Bill and Connie Fuller are trying to make a go of life in their dilapidated, recently purchased country home. The place has a lot of history. George Washington slept there. Or was it Benedict Arnold? Before Tom Hanks and Shelley Long fell into the Money Pit, even before Cary Grant and Myrna Loy unrolled a blueprint for hilarity in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, Jack Benny and Ann Sheridan turned a fixer-upper home into a comedy funhouse in “George Washington Slept Here”, based on the play by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. Percy Kilbride, the screen's future Pa Kettle, here reprises his stage role of the drawling, unflappable handyman Mr. Kimber. “The Best Years of Our Lives” (1946) - At the end of World War II, Fred Derry (Dana Andrews), Al Stevenson (Fredric March) and Homer Parrish (Harold Russell) return home to Boone City. Fred was a decorated captain in the Army Air Forces in Europe, Al a sergeant in the Army who saw action in the Pacific, and Homer a sailor who served on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific. Homer's ship was sunk, killing many of his fellow sailors; his arms were burned off below the elbow and he now uses metal hook prostheses. The three men share first a plane trip then a cab ride and become friends. Fred eventually finds work when he convinces a foreman who is also a veteran that he can learn new skills just as he learned to be a bombardier. He also finds love in the form of Peggy Stephenson. The movie ends with the Stephenson family, Homer and Wilma, and Fred and Peggy all facing challenging but nonetheless bright futures. “The Red Badge of Courage” (1951) - One war played out in front of the cameras, another raged behind them. Entangled in studio controversy during production and severely re-edited before release, the Red Badge of Courage intrigues with what it might have been. Yet half a century later, this National Board of Review 10 Best Films of 1951

selection still remains one of the movies' most memorable portraits of men at war. John Huston adapts and directs this tale of fear and bravery from Stephen Crane's novella, patterned by cinematographer Harold Rosson after Civil War photos of Matthew Brady. Audie Murphy, America's most decorated World War II hero, plays the untested youth first running from and later facing his fears, and G.I. cartoonist Bill Mauldin is his wise, easygoing pal. Pin a badge of honor on this overlooked classic.

Fourth of July festivities and wreaks havoc on swimmers, until a local sheriff (Roy Scheider) teams up with a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and an old seafarer (Robert Shaw) to hunt the monster down. OK it’s not really a patriotic film but it does take place over the Fourth of July! ”The Patriot” (2000) - A farmer reluctantly joins his rebellious son to fight to free America from the grips of the British when the Revolutionary War strikes close to home in this action-packed epic. Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger star. “Thousands Cheer” (1943) - A serviceman falls in love with the colonel's daughter while trying to put on a show for the troops. Gene Kelly, Mary Astor, Kathryn Grayson and an all-star cast in a four-star musical. “The Scarlet Coat” (1956) - It takes a spy to catch a spy in this rousing Revolutionary War adventure directed by John Sturges and starring Cornel Wilde, Michael Wilding, Anne Francis and George Sanders. When top-secret military information is recovered from the body of a spy American counter-intelligence officer Major John Bolton (Wilde) realizes there's a highly placed turncoat in the ranks. Posing as a deserter Bolton plays a dangerous game as he pretends to work for the British while attempting to ferret out the traitor's name. Shot by Academy Award winning cinematographer Paul C. Vogel (Battleground 1949) on locations in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown New York the Scarlet Coat is M-G-M at its swashbuckling best an action-packed tale of duty, betrayal and honor. “John Paul Jones” (1959) - The fierce battle has taken a grim toll. Lashed to a British man-of-war the fledging Continental Navy's Bonhomme Richard is sinking. English demand surrender. "I have not yet begun to fight!" The colonial commander replies. For the first time in naval warfare - he sends brave Marines into the rigging to hurl grenades into the rival ship's hold... and the battle turns. John Paul Jones (from the producer of El Cid and King of Kings) is the epic story of that historic encounter and of the man who inspired the growth of a mighty navy. Robert Stack (The Untouchables) plays the title role leading Bette Davis (as Catherine the Great) Charles Coburn (as Benjamin Franklin) Macdonald Carey (as Patrick Henry) and more in a star-packed, star-spangled salute. These patriotic movies are great any time of the year and many are quite educational. Take a look at them and see which ones will be added to your favorites list.

Digest the Potential Benefits of


s “probiotic” a marketing buzzword designed to boost sales, or is there really something to the trend of adding probiotics to food or encouraging consumers to take probiotic supplements? It might be hard to envision bacteria and yeast — which are often painted in a negative light and associated with various illnesses — being beneficial to health. However, it’s important to note that the body is full of bacteria, and some of it can be helpful, particularly to the digestive system. While probiotics, or those helpful bacteria and yeasts, occur naturally in the body, they also can be found in a growing number of foods and supplements. Yogurt, with its “live and active cultures,” is one source of probiotics. An panel of experts convened in October 2013 by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics found that a growing body of evidence supports the notion that probiotics can promote a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria, which has been linked to a wide range of health benefits. Since the mid1990s, when probiotics first appeared on many people’s radars, clinical studies have suggested that probiotic therapy can help treat several gastrointestinal issues, delay the development of allergies in children and treat and prevent vaginal and urinary infections in women.

Now & Then • 8

Probiotics The Harvard Medical School notes that two large reviews suggest that probiotics reduce antibioticassociated diarrhea by 60 percent when compared with a placebo. Antibiotics can kill harmful and beneficial bacteria in the gut. Probiotics help restore the balance. This may prove helpful to those with various gastrointestinal diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. There’s also interest in how gastrointestinal health may be linked to mental health. According to data published in the Journal of Neurogastroenterology & Motility in an article titled, “Effect of Probiotics on Central Nervous System Functions in Animals and Humans: A Systematic Review,” a review of 15 human studies found supplementing with bifidobacterium and lactobacillus strains for one to two months can improve anxiety, depression, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and memory. Research is still being conducted on probiotics’ influence on heart health, vaginal health, inflammation, immune system function, weight loss, and even some skin disorders like eczema. Probiotics are generally considered safe, but their use should be discussed with a doctor prior to taking them.

he story of Get Away Tours began on a morning when Marilyn Lint looked down at the paper and decided she was ready to get out there and start meeting people again, only problem was she wasn't sure how or where to start. It was 1992 and her first husband, Ernest “Doc” Lint had passed away from a heart attack. “It was completely unexpected and I felt like the world had stopped,” recalled Marilyn. “I wondered, how do you get out and meet new people as a widow?” Marilyn was running her first business Wooster Embroidery at the time, when she saw a mention in the paper of a Widows, Widowers and Friends group that was meeting in Akron. Marilyn called up the number and spoke to the woman in charge, saying she would come to their dinner if the woman would meet her at the door. Marilyn loved being around people and was curious to see what the group was like, but she was hesitant at first. At the meeting, she was pleasantly surprised to see two

other people from Wooster. Realizing it would be a good idea to start a local group, Marilyn became president of Widows, Widowers & Friends in Wooster and began surveying the members, finding out what they would like to do. Travel was a popular interest for the group and Marilyn worked with one of her Wooster Embroidery customers, Lakefront Lines tour bus company, to start taking everyone on trips to popular places. Marilyn took to the process like a fish to water and decided to form Get Away Tours in 2000, with the goal of specializing in senior travel and getting to meet new people. Their first official trip was to Chicago with stops at historic sites where they heard stories of American gangsters like Al Capone and enjoyed a stay at the famous downtown hotel, the Palmer House Hilton. Having met her second husband Calvin “Cal” Ginther through the Widows, Widowers & Friends group, Marilyn was now a widow no more. Cal's love of travel and dancing had brought the two of them together, and they continued

to journey through life with Get Away Tours. Cal's favorite trips were to Alaska and Glacier National Park. When Cal passed away in 2014, Marilyn was glad to have so many precious memories together and grateful for the friendships and experiences that all their travels had brought. On a recent trip to South Dakota and Mount Rushmore the guests spent most of the time laughing and giggling together. It's moments like this when Marilyn sees the benefit of using Get Away Tours, because everyone on the trip is enjoying each others company and experiencing travel together at just the right pace. You can see the full list of upcoming group tours in this issue of Now & Then on the front, inside cover page with destinations including bus and dinner trips to Phil Dirt & The Dozers, Motown The Musical and Texas Tenors. There will also be trips to Canada & New England, the Grand Canyon, South Africa and the Panama Canal.

here's a new chef at TJ's Restaurants in Wooster and the top priorities on his list this summer are keeping the menu fresh and local and bringing a fresh fish option to diners every week. Chef Derek Kelsey also hopes to indulge in his love for Italian faire by having a couple specialty dishes on Thursdays each week. His love for Italian cuisine began during his training at the Chef Derek Kelsey is cooking up fresh, local ingredients at Pennsylvania Institute TJ's Restaurants this summer. of Culinary Arts and

under the tutelage of Chef Toot. Chef Kelsey's own upbringing was more in mid-western meat and potatoes, coming from nearby PA. In his spare time he enjoys fishing and cooking with his 14-yearold son, who has already expressed an interest in the culinary arts. “I'm all about making everything from scratch, using fresh flavors and seasonal items,” said Chef Kelsey. “I started doing a lot of cooking with my uncle when I was 11 or 12 and that's when I realized it was what I wanted to do.”

TJ's Restaurants are proud to use produce from local growers at Mt. Hope and Maurer Farms. Lately the restaurant has seen an uptick in business from the oil and gas industry in the area, and this summer there will be a new lunch menu geared towards “Grab-N-Go” items for local workers. These hot, fresh meals will be able to go from order to plate in just 2 minutes, with plenty of combo specials for a great bargain. Scallops are a favorite dinner entree at TJ's and when the subtle, mouth watering saltiness

combines with the refreshing, aromatic citrus it's the perfect meal for a warm, summer evening. The dish transports the diner miles away to the seashore, paired with risotto blended with fresh ingredients it is served along with a summer salad featuring local produce and toast points. There will also be “Cookouts” at TJ's Restaurants every Wednesday night and live music every Tuesday and Saturday during the summer months (Memorial Day to Labor Day). The atmosphere is completely different in the various dining areas of the restaurant, which is an innovative concept that has served the area well. It allows customers to stay flexible and determine the setting and mood they are ready for when they arrive. You can feel confident meeting up with friends for dinner, knowing that whatever the consensus is, you will be able to please the majority dining indoors, outdoors or in a more quiet, intimate setting if need be. Catering is available for company events, weddings, basically whatever your event and no matter the size, TJ's Restaurants is happy to accommodate your needs. Their outdoor patio and deck features seating in the sunshine, with plenty of shade to keep guests comfortable as they dine al fresco and enjoy the scenery and vibrant city surroundings. The banquet room at TJ's has just been given a fresh look for your next gathering. From fine dining for large groups to a quick, casual stop for a burger at lunch, the dining experience you are looking for is there. While

TJ's Summer Salad and toast points is a refreshing start to the meal.

TJ's is closed on Sundays and Mondays, you can stop in at 359 W. Liberty Street in Wooster Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturdays from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. Call 330-264-6263 for more information or find them online and on social media at www.tjsrestaurants. com

While many people may not eat hot dogs during much of the year, come summertime when the grills are fired up, hot dogs take center stage. Those who really want their hot dogs to pack a flavorful punch can try this fun recipe.

Hot Dogs Stuffed with the Works

Serves 6



2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 cup refrigerated sauerkraut, drained, rinsed and coarsely chopped 4 large hot dogs, such as knockwurst 1â „2ounce cheddar cheese, cut into 4 small sticks 4 slices bacon Oil for coating grill screen 4 long hot dog buns or small sub rolls, split

1. Heat the grill as directed. 2. Mix the mustard, ketchup and sauerkraut in a small bowl. 3. Slit the hot dogs lengthwise, forming a deep pocket end to end in each one. Fill the pockets halfway with the sauerkraut mixture. Put a stick of cheese in the center of each and top with the remaining sauerkraut mixture. Wrap a bacon slice around each hot dog to hold it together, and secure the ends of each bacon strip with wooden toothpicks. 4. Put the grill screen on the grill and coat it with oil. Wait a minute or two, until the surface is hot. Grill the hot dogs until the bacon is cooked through and the hot dogs are browned on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. 5. To toast the buns, put them cut-sides down directly over the fire for the last minute of cooking. Serve the hot dogs on the buns.

The Grill Gas: Direct heat, medium high (425 F to 450 F); Clean, oiled grate Charcoal: Direct heat, light ash; 12-by-12-inch charcoal bed (about 3 dozen coals); Clean, oiled grate on lowest setting Wood: Direct heat, light ash; 12-by-12-inch bed, 3 to 4 inches deep; Clean, oiled grate set 2 inches above the fire.

Sandwiches may not be the first thing to come to mind when the dessert tray is rolled out, but this delicious recipe is more than a childhood saying.

Ingredients: 1⁄2 cup whole hazelnuts, ideally blanched (skinned) 2 tablespoons butter 2 pears, skin on, cut into 1⁄8-inch-thick slices, then cored 1 store-bought pound cake 6 tablespoons Nutella or other chocolate-hazelnut spread


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 2. Put hazelnuts on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until they begin to brown. If hazelnuts are still in their skins, bake until skins begin to darken, or for blanched nuts, until they turn golden. Remove from oven and let cool. If hazelnuts are still in their skins, place nuts in the center of a clean dish towel, fold the towel around the nuts, and rub vigorously between both hands for 15 seconds to release the skins. Discard skins and reserve the nuts. 3. In a sauté pan over medium heat (err on the low side of medium), melt butter and sauté pear slices for approximately 5 minutes per side, or until they begin to brown. Reserve. 4. Cut 6 slices of pound cake, 1⁄4-inch thick. Toast the pound cake in a toaster oven, or on a baking sheet in a 300 F oven. (It will fall apart in an upright toaster.) 5. Smear 3 cake slices with Nutella or chocolatehazelnut spread. Cover entire Nutella/spread

Did You Know?

umerous studies have found that vacationing produces a host of health benefits. The ongoing Framingham Heart Study, which began in 1948 and is currently studying its third generation of participants, found that men who did not take a vacation for several years were 30 percent more likely to have heart attacks than men who took time off. In addition, the FHS found women who take a vacation only once every six years or less were nearly eight times as likely to develop coronary heart disease or have a heart

Serving the

attack as women who vacation at least twice per year. Vacations also have been linked to lower stress levels, as a study from the American Psychological Association concluded that vacations reduce stress by removing people from activities and environments that are the sources of their stress. Vacations can even benefit employers, as an internal study from the professional services firm Ernst & Young found that employees' year-end performance ratings improved by 8 percent for each additional 10 hours of vacation time they took.
