Looking Back

The first photo above shows the old Taylor-Johnson Building in downtown Wooster, which was demolished in 1987. Eileen's Dress Shop resided in this same area (possibly in the same building). Their dress shop's formal opening was in 1945 (shown above) with five fitting rooms, an alteration room in the rear and a stock room to accommodate the incoming merchandise. The dress shop was owned by Mrs. E. L. Buehler and her daughter Eileen, after whom the store was named. (Mrs. Buehler and Eileen are the third and second from the right in the picture).

Today the Clark Building still stands, erected in 1875. This building had one of the first elevators in town, which was still in use as late as 1976. The Clark Building was also once a dress shop called Mollie Miller during the 1950s and into the 1970s. Presently Broken Rocks Cafe & Bakery and the Briggs Financial Building occupy the area on Liberty Street.

Local News August 16, 1945 – “Fill 'er up” is going to be a familiar phrase around filling stations from now on since gasoline was removed rom the list of rationed commodities yesterday just before noon. Motorists can fill up their tanks and head for the open road with no thought of squandering their supply of stamps for a little pleasure driving. In spite of the fact that gas was unrationed yesterday, the majority of the stations in Wooster kept their doors closed in observance of victory day. Most managers are expecting an increase as the stations opened and anticipated a lot of sales this weekend to accommodate “Sunday drivers.” To some people, the good word about gasoline was almost too good to be true. At Long's on Cleveland Road, a soldier stopped his car yesterday and bought some oil. “Anything else?” Ed asked after putting the oil in the car. “Well, I need gas but don't have any stamps,” the serviceman answered. So Ed “magnanimously” offered to sell him gas without stamps. The soldier undoubtedly drove off with the thought that there are a few more kind-hearted people left in the world than he had known.

of the first World War. The steel framework of The People's Savings and Loan Company building on public square was in the process of construction that war-time year. The scaffolding enclosed an elevator that was used to haul material to the upper floors during the building period and a “dummy” figure was suspended in the air, as Wooster hanged the kaiser in effigy “high and dry” although the day was not as dry as the present August weather here. Sundry citizens enlivened the occasion by firing numerous shotgun blasts at the suspended dummy. September 19, 1945 – Failure of Wooster to erect a new school building over a period of many years is annually making the present elementary schools more crowded. One example is the Beall Avenue School, where pupils are cared for with no desks. A table has been placed in the corner of the room and six youngsters use it during the daily school sessions. At the South Walnut Street School an extra row of chairs has been placed in the aisle at one side of the room to accommodate additional pupils. The kindergarten at South Walnut Street is jammed in just about as close as the chairs can be placed. The number of pupils is said to be too many for the best instruction results, according to standard school practices.

he hot Dog Days of Summer are upon us. If you’re tired of spending air conditioned evenings at the theatre watching this year’s crop of blockbuster movies, spend an inexpensive evening at home with one of my favorite “summer” movies. Here are ten suggestions for you to consider. “In the Good Old Summertime” (1949) is a tale of squabbling music-shop clerks who don't know they're romantic pen pals - shares a celebrated movie lineage that includes James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan in “The Shop Around the Corner” and Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in “You've Got Mail”. In between those two, Judy Garland and Van Johnson had mail plus Gold Old tunes evoking an era of straw boaters and silvery moons. Sparked by Garland's comedic zest and musical appeal, this confection is one of the sweetest, most unpretentious entertainments of 1949 (Clive Hirschhorn, The Hollywood Musical). It's also a nostalgic farewell and a sunny hello. Buster Keaton appears in his final film for the studio he first joined in 1928. And Liza Minnelli, all of 18 months young, makes her debut in the finale.

“The Long Hot Summer” (1958) Ben Quick (Paul Newman) arrives in Frenchman's Bend, MS after being kicked out of another town for allegedly burning a barn for revenge. Will Varner (Orson Welles) owns just about everything in Frenchman's Bend and he hires Ben to work in his store.Will thinks his own son, Jody (Anthony Franciosa), who manages the store, lacks ambition and despairs of him getting his wife, Eula (Lee Remick), pregnant. Will thinks his daughter, Clara (Joanne Woodward), a schoolteacher, will never get married. He decides that Ben Quick might make a good husband for Clara to bring some new blood into the family. Newman and Woodward actually do marry in real life after shooting wraps up! Jennifer O'Neill, Gary Grimes star and Michel Legrand's Oscar-winning score filters through the poignant story of a 15-year-old boy, on the brink of his first sexual encounter, who falls in love at first sight with a lovely young war bride whose husband has just been dispatched to the front lines in “The Summer of ’42” (1971). A beginners' wilderness journey turns into a death-defying experience in the suspenseful actionadventure “White Water Summer” (1987) starring Kevin Bacon (TV's "The Following") and Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings). The Film features outstanding cinematography from John Alcott (The Shining) and


town where the only entertainment in the day is the roller rink and at night the local drive-in. Hosting a cross-section of the town's population, the drive-in comes to life at night - parents show up with their kids in tow, teenage paramours arrive with their dates, and the local gangs fuel their rivalry - under the gigantic screen and at the snack bar. The film playing is a '70s staple: The disaster movie. Tension builds on the screen and also among the patrons. Director Rod Amateau, producer/director of legendary television series "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show" and "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," is no stranger to comedy, and this off-beat, little-known film (with a lesser-known cast) is a hilarious flashback to the seventies. Move the television outside to the patio and enjoy these summertime movies under the stars on a warm summer night.

a driving musical score with Bruce Hornsby and the Range, Journey and the Cult. A cherry Corvette Stingray. A gorgeous girl. A summer in glittery Las Vegas. What more does a guy need for the wildest, weirdest, funniest, freakiest time of his life? In “Corvette Summer” (1978), Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and Annie Potts (Designing Women) make comedic and romantic sparks fly in a revved-up tale of car-brained Kenny (Hamill) trailing a Corvette that's mysteriously boosted after his high school shop class restores it to perfection. The trail leads to Fun Capital USA and a ditzy diversion (Potts) whose dream is to become - a hooker! This damsel in distress needs a white knight on a candyapple metal-flake superior-mags mercury tubes steed, right Kenny? Both are in for a summer they'll never forget. “Summer Holiday” (1948) is the glorious Technicolor version of Eugene O'Neill's beloved coming-of-age play Ah Wilderness! The splendid cast is headed by Mickey Rooney (who played the youngest brother in 1935's Ah Wilderness! Set in Danville, Connecticut at the turn of the century, young Richard Miller (Rooney) lives in a middle-class neighborhood with his family. He is in love with the girl next-door, Muriel (Gloria DeHaven), but her father (Walter Huston) isn't too happy with their puppylove, since Richard always shares his revolutionary ideas with her. “A Summer Place” (1959) is the story of a business man, Ken Jorgenson who takes his wife, Helen and his daughter Molly to an island off the coast of Maine. Little does he suspect that he will rekindle the teenage love affair he once had with the now married Sylvia. Now it seems that events are going to repeat themselves when her son and his daughter meet and fall in love, directed by Delmer Daves, starring Troy Donahue, Sandra Dee, and Dorothy McGuire. Katharine Hepburn stars as a lonely, middle-aged American spinster who dreams of romance and falls in love with a married man (Rossano Brazzi) during her first European excursion, a summer in Venice, Italy in “Summertime” (1955). “Dirty Dancing” (1987) is a classic story for all ages with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. In the summer of 1963, innocent 17-year-old Baby (Grey) vacations with her parents at a Catskill's resort. One evening, she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music. There she meets Johnny (Swayze), the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and love. “Drive-In” (1976) is a slice-of-life comedy that both documents and satirizes small town life in a rural Texas

Cruising

Tips for Travelers

C

ruises are a popular vacation option that appeal to travelers for a number of reasons. When on a cruise, vacationers typically get to see numerous cities in various countries while spending their nights aboard luxurious ships that cater to their every need. Those who have never been on a cruise may not know what to look for as they consider taking the cruise plunge. The following are a few pointers for travelers who need some help finding the right cruise to take them out to the high seas. • Find a ship that suits your style. You don’t need to know anything about sailing or boats to find a cruise that suits your style. But it is important that would-be cruisers know that not all ships are the same. Some cruise ships cater to families, so singles or young married couples without children may want to avoid such ships. Before booking a cruise, do your homework to ensure you find a ship that will appeal to you and cater to your needs. • Ask for recommendations. Another way to find a ship that’s right for you is to ask family and friends for recommendations. Chances are strong you know people who have sailed before, and they can be invaluable resources. Ask about their experience and if there was anything they wish they did differently. They may recommend a certain cruise line or time of year to travel, and such recommendations should be taken into consideration before you make your final decision. • Research your lodging options. Lodging prices vary greatly, and it will no doubt prove tempting to choose

Considering a Cruise the least expensive lodging option, especially if you plan to spend most of your time on deck or patrolling the ports of call. But travelers who are accustomed to fivestar hotels may find cabins with no windows don’t suit their style, and that can make for a less enjoyable trip. Before booking your trip, explore your lodging options and choose a cabin you know you will be comfortable in. • Find ports of call you want to visit. A big part of the excitement of going on a cruise is the opportunity to visit different ports and experience various cultures in a single trip. Ships will usually dock for a day at a time and allow passengers to visit different cities throughout the trip. Make a list of cities you want to visit and then choose a cruise that takes you to as many of those cities as possible. • Ask a professional for help. Even if you receive recommendations from like-minded friends and relatives, you still may find it difficult to choose the right cruise for you. If that’s the case, you can work with a travel agent who specializes in cruise ships. Travel agents can be invaluable resources who can help you find a cruise and cruise line that suits your needs. Agents can also help you understand any visa or passport requirements, and they may even be able to arrange for special perks you might not be privy to if you simply book your trip online. Cruises make for wonderful vacations that allow travelers to explore many different cultures while enjoying breathtaking scenery. First-time cruisers can take several steps to ensure they choose the right cruise and make the most of their first time at sea.

Convertibles Maintain Popularity

F

or many people, warm weather road trips are most enjoyable when taking to the road in a convertible. Fans of convertibles find few things can compare to the wind blowing in their hair and the sun shining on their faces on a beautiful day. The concept of a convertible is nothing new. In fact, convertibles can be traced to some of the earliest vehicles, which were built without tops and based on the design of horse and carriages. The first closed vehicle was manufactured in 1910, and the first retractable hardtop vehicle system was unveiled in 1922. Peugeot claims to be the first manufacturer of power-operated retractable hardtops, which appeared in 1934. Many other auto manufacturers soon followed suit. Plus, cloth tops were introduced in addition to the hard top varieties. People are attracted to convertibles for many reasons. Appearance and the feeling of connection to the outdoors are two of the most popular reasons for driving convertibles. However, the same attributes that draw some people to convertibles may deter others. Many assumptions and criticisms about convertible cars are exaggerated and could incorrectly paint these vehicles in a negative light. Functionality is one common knock on convertibles. Convertibles certainly are at their best during warm

Now & Then • 8

weather, but that doesn’t mean they cannot be driven in different seasons. Many modern convertibles feature cabins that are well insulated. With the top up, a person can feel just as comfortable as in other vehicles. Safety is another concern with regard to convertibles, but modern technology has done much to make convertibles safer. While there is the rare possibility in a rollover incident that convertibles could land on the open top, maintaining the speed limit and driving defensively can reduce the risk of accident. Many modern convertibles are modeled on coupes or hatchbacks that would ordinarily have a static roof. To compensate for the roof removal, reinforcements to the pillars and the chassis, as well as rollover bars or other safety features in handling and stability to drastically reduce rolling risk, are included. Convertibles can be enjoyed regardless of where drivers live. According to Forbes magazine, although 23 percent of convertibles are owned by those in California or Florida, the top five markets in the United States also include colder cities like New York and Chicago. Convertibles have been featured in movies and helped to shape the history of automobiles. And contrary to popular belief, convertibles are not exclusive to drivers in warm climates.

ough, strong and determined men and women, many of them spurned on by a deep desire for peace, prone to hope and dream as they gazed out onto a new land, full of promise – these were the people who came to Wayne and Holmes Counties during the Swiss Protestant Reformation. Making the journey to America for religious freedom, the Amish and Mennonites trace their beginnings in our country to these same Swiss settlers, who first came to Sugarcreek, located in Tuscarawas County, Ohio in the year 1808. Each September visitors from around the world come to the “Little Switzerland of Ohio” to enjoy Amish Country and celebrate this beloved heritage at the Ohio Swiss Festival on the fourth weekend after Labor Day, this year on September 29th and 30th. These Swiss descendants brought traditions into a new world as they settled and started communities in both Pennsylvania and Ohio. Their heritage has played a huge role in the lives of families in our area today. One of the most fascinating events at the festival is the Steinstossen or Stone Throwing in which contestants will hold stones over their head, seeing who can hurl the boulder for the greatest distance. Men throw 138 pound stones while women throw 75 pound stones. The Steinstossen in Sugarcreek is the longest running contest of it's kind in the U.S. One of the longest distances the stone has traveled (thus far) was recorded at just over fifteen feet.

During the first days of the festival there was a Schwingen competition (Swiss wrestling) and while that has since been discontinued, contests such as the stone toss, a yodeling competition, and the Swiss costume competition allow guests to join in on the fun, cheer each other on and become more than just spectators. There is also live polka music and alphorn players, helping to create an authentic atmosphere for the event. More than a musical instrument, the alphorn was a tool developed by alpine shepherds to call in herds from pasture for milking time, or motivate cows as they climbed steep mountains. The sound of the horn has served as a call to evening prayer as well as a

The festival kicks off on the 27th of September, with events leading into the weekend and the first full day on Friday, the 29th.

All the details for visitors can be found online at OhioSwissFestival. com. The influence of the Swiss is still evident on every corner. The way they celebrated together has continued to draw in visitors for the past 65 years, an achievement that those brave, first settlers would no doubt be proud to see. Perhaps they would tell us to enjoy life – for it is short and precious. Take in the sights and sounds, have some delicious cheese, do a little dancing and give a cheer, for on that last weekend in September everyone is part of the Swiss family in Sugarcreek, all are welcome – Wilkomme!

Can Back Pain Be Resolved

Without Drugs? Article by PAUL M MCGHEE PT, OCS, CERT. MDT WOOSTER ORTHOPAEDIC & SPORTS MEDICINE CENTER

L

ow back pain is one of the most common reasons for all physician visits in the U.S. Most Americans have experienced low back pain at some point in their lives. Approximately one quarter of adults reported having low back pain lasting at least one day in the past three months. Pain is categorized as acute (lasting less than four weeks), and chronic (lasting more than 12 weeks). The latest advice on back pain from the American College of Physicians states patients with acute low back pain will generally improve over time regardless of treatment. When treatment is necessary, non-drug approaches including exercise are preferred for all but the most substantial forms of back pain. When patients with low back pain persist after non-drug approaches have been tried, the new guidelines make a recommendation to consider non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs. Opiates are only an option for patients who have failed conservative treatments. This

should only be considered when the benefits outweigh the risks and this needs to be determined by you and your physician. This represents a shift from the American College of Physicians previous position which called for the use of medication as part of the first line of treatment. The new guidelines based on most recent research recommend physicians avoid prescribing costly and potentially harmful treatments especially narcotics. Physical therapy has been shown to be an excellent, low risk treatment option. Patients do not need to see a physician to initiate a physical therapy program, however, the State of Ohio law does require that a physical therapist communicate with the patient's physician after the initial evaluation has been performed. Individuals with back pain should select therapies that have the fewest harms and the lowest cost. One such intervention is a physical therapy program, directed by providers with appropriate training. Not all back pain is the same, so your treatment


should be tailored for your specific symptoms and condition. Once your condition has been diagnosed, your physical therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to help address your pain. A physical therapy program may include local heat, cold, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and traction. In addition, manual therapies of stretching, massage, joint mobilization/manipulation and exercises that are specifically prescribed for the patient's presenting problem are extremely effective. One physical therapy approach is mechanical diagnosis and therapy by the McKenzie approach. It is important to note that patients who respond favorably to the McKenzie M.D.T. physical therapy can learn to successfully treat themselves and minimize the number of visits to the clinic. By learning how to self-treat the current problem, patients gain hands on knowledge on how to minimize the risk of recurrence and how to manage symptoms

that do occur. Achievable goals are to reduce pain, increase movement, maintain pain reduction, restore full function and prevent reoccurrence. If you have interest in seeking this type of care, Wooster Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine has appropriate trained physical therapists on staff to address your specific issue and would like the opportunity to assist you in resolving your problem.

Crafting

Crafts for the Not-SoCrafty Hobbyist

C

reativity lends a lot to everyday life. School parties are made that much better by intricate dessert designs. Handmade blankets tend to be more inspiring and cherished than mass-produced alternatives. Because of that, many people find hobbies that inspire their creativity to be incredibly rewarding. While crafting is a hobby that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skillsets, some people are more craft-inclined than others. That doesn’t mean those with little arts and crafts experience cannot make items they can be proud of. The following are a handful of projects for inexperienced crafters who may feel as though they have two left thumbs.

Dress-up premade items Sandra Lee made a career of teaching people how to blend some prepackaged food items with other ingredients to create semi-homemade menus. Anyone can use the same mentality to put together craft projects without having to start from scratch. Search the hobby stores or department stores for items that can be paired together. For example, why not glue a 4-by-6-inch picture frame to the top of candlestick holder for an ornate and interesting design element at home? Mason jars can be embellished with just about anything — from ribbon to fabric to glitter — giving them a decorative touch. Simply giving an item a new coat of paint or adding some decorative tacks or hooks can easily change its look and give it a crafty feel.

Grow comfortable with a computer printer Homespun graphic arts can be mastered by just about anyone with access to some clip art, fonts and basic design software. You may also be able to find free apps or shareware online providing ready-made templates. Print out cute labels or tags that match party themes and put them on favor bags or prizes. Print cute slogans on cardstock and staple them to a small, filled plastic baggie to serve as classroom gifts or Valentines. Make a collage of different images and print them out to frame. Or snap a picture of a particular pattern or design element that fits with a room’s theme and then frame that image for matching artwork.

Make soaps or candles Thanks to the bevy of kits available at craft stores, it’s easier than ever to make your own soaps or candles at home. All it usually takes is melting down the medium, adding the desired scents and colors and then allowing them to set in a mold or container. The result may seem like you worked for hours when really it was a relatively easy task. These handmade products can make great hostess gifts or nice touches when guests stay over at your home.

Crafting doesn’t have to be difficult. Projects exist for people of varying skill levels.

Personalize clothing You do not have to be an artist to create t-shirts, aprons or other items that have that personalized touch. If you do not want to hassle with the mess of fabric paints or pens, use ironon stencils or letters. Another idea is to create your own stencil (fire up that printer again), cut out your design or letters and then use a bleach pen sold in the laundry or cleaning aisle to color in the design.

then remove the eggs from the water and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Preheat a sauté pan. Cut the chorizo into very small dice and sauté until crispy. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce, cumin, salt, pepper, jalapeño, and jalapeño juice. When the eggs have cooled, carefully crack the shells and peel under cold running water. Slice the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks, being careful to leave the whites intact. Combine the avocado and egg yolks in a small bowl, and mash together with a fork until smooth. Add the avocado mixture to the mayonnaise mixture and blend thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into each half of egg white. Dust with the paprika, sprinkle with the cilantro and chorizo, and serve.

Did You Know? T

raffic can be bad for your health and also bad for your car. According to a University of Surrey study published in Science Daily, pollution levels inside of cars were found to be 40 percent higher while sitting in traffic jams or at red lights compared to levels in freeflowing traffic. The World Health Organization considers interior car pollution one of the top 10 health risks faced by humans. Health implications are not the only hazard posed by traffic jams. Stop-and-go traffic also takes its toll on vehicles. When idling, engine ventilation systems

are at their weakest, warns Road and Travel. As a result, acidic combustion products and incompletely burned fuel in the engine can start to form engine deposits. Over time, such deposits may clog fuel injectors and interfere with the flow of fuel to the combustion chamber. Traffic can age vehicle engines and their braking systems. Using brake fluid and oils for extreme driving conditions may help prevent some damage. Avoiding rush hour is another way to improve personal health and safeguard the condition of the vehicle.
