Hayner Center hosts two free concerts Hal Walker performs Saturday, the Three Sopranos sing Tuesday audiences of all ages. With a soaring baritone voice, he sings soul-searching songs that celebrate community, diversity and the creative process. He improvises and composes on unique musical instruments that many people have probably never seen before. Among them, the khaen, a long bamboofashioned wind instrument from Northeast Thailand and grandmother of the harmonica, and the banakulas, two gourd shakers tied together with a string that children in West Africa walk down the street playing, one in each hand.

Walker grew up in Kent, blowing a harmonica along the banks of the Cuyahoga River. He traveled around the United States playing his music and even tried his hand in the big-time scene of New York City. But life on the road eventually led him back home to Ohio. And his love of the Buckeye state is sincere. His album “Home in Ohio” bears witness to that fact. “I write songs about connection,” he said. “I think that’s the interesting thing about my music. It engages people across cultures and across ages. I feel we live in this world that tends toward isolation. We stay in our cars and in our closed worlds, and I believe the solution for me is connecting with people.” On Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center presents a chamber concert performance with the Three Sopranos, Diana Cataldi, Ginger Minneman and Kimberly Warrick. Diana Cataldi received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in vocal performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and in 2010, completed her Doctorate of Musical Arts in

BY LINDY JURACK iN75 Editor SIDNEY — The Vein Treatment and Medical Cosmetic Center at Fairington Cardiovascular and Wellness Center, 1103 Fairington Drive, is offering the public the opportunity to try or continue Botox treatments at a discounted price this winter. A Valentine Botox Party is scheduled for Feb. 1. On that day between 4 and 6 p.m., the staff at the Vein Treatment Center will offer units of Botox for $10 each to walk-in clients. The standard price is $13 for each unit. Adults 18 and older are invited. Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, according to literature provided by the center. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces muscle activity that causes those lines to form between the brows. The skin becomes creased from years of squinting and concentrating, and as time passes, the skin becomes less elastic, and the frown lines between the brows remain, even when the

“The procedure only takes a few minutes. It’s very quick, very easy and it has a huge impact.”

muscles aren’t contracting. Botox can give real, noticeable results to those who have moderate to severe frown lines. Jennifer Brandehoff, nuclear medicine technician at the Vein Treatment Center, said the procedure is quick and easy, and full results are seen within approximately five days. Another benefit? It’s painless, Brandehoff said. “Any time you tell people they’re getting injected in their face, they think it’s going to hurt, but it doesn’t,” she said, speaking from experience. Most of the staff at the clinic has been using Botox for a while, so they can talk to clients about their own personal experience with the medicine. The procedure is quick. Patients can come to the Botox party Feb. 1 and speak with Dr. Randall Orem about what they’d like to change. He then injects as many units and the client wants, typically 12-42 Brandehoff said. And you walk right out the door with no recovery time, or even bruising or swelling. The first time Brandehoff had Botox, she went immediately to her son’s football practice and asked if anyone could tell she’d had something done. Botox doesn’t leave be-

hind redness or scars. “The procedure only takes a few minutes. It’s very quick, very easy and it has a huge impact,” she said. Brandehoff said many patients come to the Vein Treatment Center because others have told them they look unhappy, but it’s just because the deep wrinkles make them look upset or angry. Botox can help eliminate that, without making your face stiff or non-emotive. “People can’t tell you’ve had anything done. They just think you look more awake or that you’ve been using a better moisturizer,” she said. “And you feel better about yourself.” The results of Botox are not permanent, but typically last three to four months. Repeat visits are encouraged to keep the look you want. The Vein Treatment and Medical Cosmetic Center has been offering Botox for five to six years, and the treatment has been popular with residents of Sidney and surrounding areas. Brandehoff said they see a lot of repeat customers, both men and women. For more information about Botox or the Feb. 1 event, call the center at (937) 497-1200 or visit

Polamalu wax figure to visit Buffalo Wild Wings TROY — Troy is headed to Troy. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu that is — or rather, his “legendaryous” wax figure. The Madame Tussauds likeness of Troy is making a road trip from New York City to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, and along the way, the waxy statue with famous curly locks is making a stop at Buffalo Wild Wings in Troy this Sunday. Polamalu is the spokesperson for Head & Shoulders, and in October, the hair care company went to great lengths to immortalize the football player’s legendary hair by revealing a generously coiffed wax likeness created by the artists of

The figure has been traveling since the beginning of January, and all throughout its journey, fans are getting the opportunity to view the figure up close when his tricked out RV stops in cities along the way. “Legendaryous Troy” will be at Buffalo Wild Wings, 2313 W.

press release about the creation of the wax figure, “Legendaryous Troy” sports almost double the amount of hair than any other wax figure ever created. Polamalu, who has been growing his hair for nearly a decade to honor his Samoan roots, is marking his third year as a spokesperson for Head & Shoulders. “It truly is a great

honor that Head & Shoulders and Madame Tussauds are immortalizing my hair with this wax figure,” Polamalu said in the release. “First there was the million-dollar insurance policy for my hair – and now this amazing wax figure. I am not sure what Head & Shoulders could do next — but my hair is certainly reaching legendary status.”

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner Piqua merchants begin to prepare for the romantic holiday BY LINDY JURACK iN75 Editor PIQUA — It seems like we just counted down the last seconds of 2011, but January is almost over and it’s time to start thinking seeing red and pink. Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, but that doesn’t make it any less romantic. A few Piqua retailers can make sure your sweetheart is happy with whatever gift you choose, whether it’s flowers, jewelry or collectibles.

Allisten Manor’s Flower Box Allisten Manor’s Flower Box, 1622 Washington Ave., has flowers, candy and stuffed animals available for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Florist Don Smith said he will offer traditional rose arrangements and also feature a more contemporary design with the same amount of roses. Allisten Manor prides itself in three styles of arrangements, Smith said, traditional, contemporary and modern. “A lot of people think contemporary and modern is the same thing but it’s really not,” he said. “Contemporary is more high

He also creates baskets for anyone, men included, that can be tailored to the recipients favorite candy or items. Customers can even bring in their own items to be included in a basket, such as

a bottle of wine or favorite sports team merchandise. And the price of the baskets is set by what the client wants in it. “It can be anything from an office mug with candy bars in it to a $50 to $100 basket,” he said. Smith recommends ordering a basket in advance so he has time to include the special items you request. The shop will be open Feb. 13 and 14 normal hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., but or-

dering in advance is always recommended. Smith orders a certain number of flowers for the big day, and if you wait to long, he might be sold out. “If you order in advance, you get what you want. It makes a big difference,” he said, noting Valentine’s Day ties Mother’s Day for the single busiest day of the year.

This saves the customer money, eases up Smith’s schedule for Tuesday and also lets the recipient enjoy their gift the whole week long. Allisten’s offers another service that’s unique for Valentine’s Day. “A lot of people enjoy taking their significant other to dinner,” he said. “Wouldn’t it be nice to have an arrangement at the restaurant? Then they can take it home, and it makes it more special.” Customers can ask Smith to make a delivery to a restaurant, and he’ll make sure it gets on the table for the customer’s reservation.

Although Valentine’s Day is touted for the romantic relationships in our lives, it doesn’t have to be limited to them. “I think sometimes people forget one important person — mom,” Smith said. “Send mom a bud vase with a single rose or group of three, or get the kids together and send her a rose for each kid she has. It’s nice to remember mom on Valentine’s Day.” In his career, Smith has seen the impact flowers have on people. “The interesting thing about flowers is any time you deliver flowers, • See Valentine on page 8

Valentine whether it’s in bereavement, celebration or just because, the people who receive them really respond. It says, ‘I care,’” he said. He remembers delivering a small arrangement to a woman in a nursing home from her daughter. “She had a big smile on her face and was so pleased her daughter thought to send her flowers,” he said. Smith is a firm believer in buying local, even if you want to send flowers to someone across the country. He can find a florist in another state for you and work with them to get the best look for the best price.

Barclay’s Barclay’s Men-Women Clothiers, 314 N. Main St., is another good place to snatch up something your sweetheart will love.

Harrison said Brighton makes small accessories in a light metallic pink that would be good for Feb. 14, such as a compact mirror in heart shape that says “love.” “Typically for us, we sell a lot of the accessory items to go along with the flowers and chocolates people buy,” Harrison said. While most of the Valentine’s Day customers are men shopping for women, Barclay’s also sees women shopping for their husbands and boyfriends. The store has a lot of sportswear, wallets and watches for men. Cologne and ties also are popular, Harrison said. Barclay’s gets busy the day before Valentine’s Day, and the shop will be open Feb. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Feb. 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Harrison encourages customers to pick up the rest of the valentines in Piqua. “It’s one-stop shopping in downtown Piqua,” she said.

For Valentine’s Day, New 2 U is offering 20 percent off everything in the store, and 50 percent off clothes. The shop is open through Valentine’s Day, including Feb. 13 and 14, so last-minute valentine shoppers can stop in.

That also means customers shouldn’t hesitate to make a purchase. “If you see it, you better get it because things don’t last very long,” Freeman said. “We have lots of one-of-a-kind things.”

A proud, born-and-bred Jersey girl, Stephanie Plum’s got plenty of attitude, even if she’s been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie convinces her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company as a recovery agent. True, she doesn’t even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn’t stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny’s biggest bail-jumper — former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli, who seduced and dumped her back in high school. As Stephanie learns the ins and outs of becoming a recovery agent from Ranger, a hunky colleague who is the best in the business, she also realizes the case against Morelli isn’t airtight. Add to the mix her meddling family, a potentially homicidal boxer, witnesses who keep dying and the problem of all those flying sparks when she finds Morelli himself and suddenly Stephanie’s new job isn’t nearly as easy as she thought.
