Specialty beer, wine store opening Friday Bottle No. 121 brings cosmopolitan atmosphere to Troy’s public square BY LINDY WAGNER iN75 Editor TROY — A unique store offering craft beers and fine wines is opening Friday on the public square in downtown Troy. Bottle No. 121 is located at 121 Public Square N.E., Suite 10, sandwiched between Ruby’s and the shoe repair shop. A grand opening event will be announced at a later date. Store hours are Monday to Thursday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Brian Heggs and Mallorie Brinkman, both of Piqua, have turned their hobby into a business, and they have big plans for the store. “We enjoy trying different beers and wines, but we hated having to go to Cincinnati or Columbus,” Heggs said. Bottle No. 121 will bring the cosmopolitan feel of the big city to Troy, offering unique beer and wine, gourmet foods and acces-

We hope people will come in and find their new favorite wine or beer.” — Brian Heggs sories in an atmosphere where lingering and asking questions is encouraged. The carryout store also plans to apply for a license to hold tastings. Craft beers from Samuel Adams, Left Hand, New Holland, Bell’s, Rogue, Fat Head and Great Lakes are just some of the breweries that will be represented on the shelves at Bottle No. 121. Heggs and Brinkman also plan to have a section of made-inOhio microbrews, as well as organic and gluten-free beers. “We’re going to offer beer that’s not available in Troy right now.

graphic of craft beer connoisseurs — same thing with wine,” Heggs said. “We’ll have a varied selection, not a huge selection, but we’ll always be evolving and changing.” The evolving nature of the store is represented in Bottle No. 121’s logo, which features a circle behind “No.” that is always changing colors. Heggs, who spent 27 years in marketing and advertising, designed the logo himself. He is now finishing up a business degree at Edison State Community College. “What we hope to achieve is a selection that’s always changing,” he said. “We hope people will come in and find their new favorite wine or beer.” The upstairs wine section of the store will be stocked with bottles from domestic and international vineyards. Wines from Oregon, California, France, Spain, Italy and Argentina will be available, among others. Heggs guarantees every bottle will come from an actual vineyard, which isn’t always the case when buying from big box stores. “It’s not only going to be good stuff, but it’s not going to be terribly expensive,” Heggs said. Most bottles will range from $10 to $30, with more

Mallorie Brinkman and Brian Heggs are opening a new craft beer and fine wine store on the public square in Troy on Friday. Bottle No. 121 carries several unique bottles of beer and wine as well as accessories, such as wine totes and the Corkcicle, seen here. expensive bottles also available, he said. Because the owners plan on stocking the shelves with beers and wines people haven’t seen before, they encourage customers to ask questions and learn as much as they can. Heggs and Brinkman are furthering their education to be able to help their clients. “We would like our customers to never feel intimidated to ask questions. We want people to learn,” Brinkman said. The owners modeled the store after places they like to frequent in Columbus in order to give local shoppers a unique experience. Beer and wine magazines and books are available for browsing, and seating is of-
fered upstairs in the wine section. The wines are displayed with descriptions and food pairings. Customers are encouraged to take their time in the store. “We want to be serviceoriented and get to know our customers. We want a friendly atmosphere,” Brinkman said. Heggs and Brinkman welcome questions about drink and food pairings, too. For no extra charge, they’ll help you pick out the perfect wine or beer to go with the food on your party menu. Gourmet foods also will be for sale at Bottle No. 121. “With the vendor we’re looking at, you just can’t go anywhere and get it,”
Heggs said. “It’ll be prepackaged foods ready to take home and enjoy.” The store also carries accessories such as stemware, bottle openers, decanters and cheese cutting boards. The Corkcicle, which keeps red and white wine perfectly chilled, is sold in the store. Wine totes also are available, including unique styles that are long, round purses made with stylish material that each fit one bottle of wine. Brinkman will put her experience in floral design and retail to good use creating gift baskets for Bottle No. 121. She’ll offer romantic baskets with wine and chocolate-covered • See Bottle on page 3

Plans also are in the works to offer customer loyalties where people can earn points on what they buy, and also to develop a beer and wine of the month club. “We have a lot of plans and we’re always coming up with things to do,” Heggs said. One of the things Heggs and Brinkman are planning on for sure is being active in town. “Troy is the ideal location. It fit our demographic really well. No one is really offering this
type of thing in this atmosphere,” Heggs said. “We plan to be active within the community. We also want to support the Troy police with the DARE program. We always advocate responsible consumption.” Heggs said the city personnel he’s worked with in getting the store off the ground have been great and really excited. Bottle No. 121 already has more than 300 likes on Facebook, and it’s climbing every day, showing how excited local folks are about the store.

Comedian/ventriloquist to perform in Greenville GREENVILLE — Comedian and ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger will bring her trunk full of characters to the Bistro Off Broadway in Greenville Feb. 7, continuing Darke County Center for the Arts’ Coffeehouse Series season. DCCA’s Coffeehouse presentations take place in intimate venues where audiences can enjoy food and drink as well as a show. The performance begins at 7 p.m. Trefzger, who has been performing for more than 30 years, first gained national attention on “Star Search.” “Currently recognized as one of the best ventriloquists in the world, Lynn is also riotously funny,” said DCCA Artistic Direc-
tor Keith Rawlins. “She has appeared on TV numerous times, entertained on various cruise lines and performed on stages around the country to wild acclaim. Her show will be a lot of fun for the whole family.” According to Rawlins, Lynn’s many characters include a lazy camel named Camelot; Emily, a feisty girl whose life revolves around shopping, dieting, dating and clothes; cranky old man Judd Wapner; and chief sidekick Simon. The ventriloquist also brings members of the audience on stage who become human dummies • See Comedian on page 11

neuropathy usually watches it grow worse over time. If you are someone who lives with the misery and agony of peripheral neuropathy, there is good news that is bringing help and hope to many people. A new neuropathy approach focuses around a unit known as a Sensory Integrator, also known as painless soft laser, where the light of nearly 300 pulsed, infrared, light-emitting diodes penetrates the skin to assist in new capillary formation, leading to new nerve growth through re-oxygenation of the nerve tissue. This new therapy has been found to nearly double the rate of human nerve cell regeneration. Additionally, it serves to release a natural compound found in the blood
vessels known as nitric oxide, which helps bring about pain relief. Combined with various levels of synchronized tissue vibration, polarity therapy, nerve decompression techniques, tissue massage and gentle joint mobilization, many people are experiencing remarkable results. Just as nice, there are no drugs, injections or surgery involved. The treatments are relaxing, soothing and enjoyable for almost everyone. In association with Neuropathy Treatment Centers of America, ChiroCenter is pleased to bring this wonderful new treatment approach to the people of our area.

Somewhere in Time offers unique items PIQUA — Somewhere In Time is an appropriate name for a new store located in a downtown building with such a rich and varied history. Downtown Piqua’s newest retail store specializing in vintage décor is located at 509 N. Main St., the building that most recently housed the Piqua Historical Museum,
before being moved in with the Piqua Public Library at the Fort Piqua Plaza. Somewhere In Time is run by partners Angie Koons, Mia Amburn and Tisha Wolfe-Schwenzer, and features 15 different vendors, each with their own type of merchandise. Items in the store include jams and jellies and fresh
bread from Our Daily Bread, to candles, embroidery items, antiques and jewelry. The store has a number of shabby chic items, but also has re-made vintage items and furniture. Koons, who has run similar types of stores in the past, is thrilled with the selection of items available
in the store. “We have a number of items that can be customized or special ordered according to the customer’s needs including jewelry, furniture and signs,” Koons said. The display fixtures in • See Somewhere on page 7

Somewhere • CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 the store are certainly unique with old library bookshelves being re-purposed to show off antique and vintage items. Somewhere In Time has been open in the former museum space for about three weeks, and Koons said most people have found out about the store through word of mouth or by simply driving by and seeing the building lit up at night. The building had been vacant for several years so bringing the building back to life needed to be done in phases. Phase one has been completed. “We are using the main two rooms on the first floor for our retail loca-
tion, and we have had a very nice response to the business,” Koons said. The next phase, to be completed in the first couple of months of 2013, will be to repaint and clean up the second floor of the building. The space will then be filled with additional vendors, and the store also will have a designated classroom area that will host various classes including jewelry making, canning, painting, paper crafting and how to make natural body and face scrubs. Koons hopes to have the classes under way in February. Those interested in finding out more about the classes are encouraged to like Somewhere In Time Décor on Facebook.
When the second floor opens, noted area photographer Alisha Lange will open a photography studio on the second floor space. The third phase of the building rehab calls for a cafe to open in the rear of the building. The Bombdiggity Cafe will feature a light menu of locally grown items with customers having the option of eating inside or sitting in the courtyard in the rear of the building. If everything goes according to plan, the cafe will open in early summer. Somewhere In Time is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The store’s phone number is (937) 214-5087.

Theatre of the Schuster Center. Torrid emotions often lie beneath a cool exterior. An extroverted persona may conceal calmer waters of spiritual depth. This program looks at this fascinating paradox. Lalo’s violin concerto, Symphonie Espagnole, brings all the fiery rhythms and melodic fantasy one would expect from the title. Yet, its real strength lies in its cool, French, offhand style. Internationally acclaimed prodigy Chad Hoopes takes the lead on violin. While Sibelius’ Second Symphony seems calmly pastorale at first, underneath you’ll discover a burning passion for his Finnish fatherland.

Her line drawings and watercolors have earned her a place in Who’s Who in American Art and similar volumes. Her work was selected to be part of the Ohio Watercolor Society’s Exhibition in 2012. She also has had work exhibited internationally. Dr. Charles Dietz, former director of the Zanesville Ohio Art Center, once described Phillis as a “romantic visual poet” and further stated that she uses “liquid color to distill the essence of subject and concept.” 116 W.

Family fun Preserving memories workshop PIQUA — The Piqua Public Library is offering a workshop called Pre-
serving Family Memories Saturday afternoon in the library’s Louis Program Room. Between family photos, newspaper clippings, digital files, family trees and scrapbooks, you’ve got a lot of information to hand down to the next generation. Public historian and genealogist Raymond Shook will present this class on preserving and organizing your keepsakes so they create a personal historic record that will benefit generations to come. As a public historian, Shook has worked in the fields of records management, archives, museums and genealogy for more than 20 years. Last year, he also started his own consulting firm, Family Memory Consulting. Participants don’t need to bring any of their items to this informational workshop, but organizers recommend bringing paper and a pen to note helpful tips, supplies and websites. Some of the information presented will include assessing your collection and your resources; prioritizing your efforts and the value of information and objects; organizing and identifying objects and marking them; the principle of reversibility; special projects and the websites to assist you; and the value of electronic images. 116 W.

Skunk populations have increased throughout Ohio as they are highly adaptable and take advantage of human provided food when available. They are more common in rural areas where they can scavenge for just about anything edible including insects, small mammals, fish, crustaceans, fruit, grass, leaves, buds, grains, nuts and carrion (dead stuff).

know, Mark and I are not big football fans, maybe just an Ohio State game or two. But this Super Bowl we will be watching! I, for one, think that there will be more played out that day than just football — brotherly love, for one. The Harbaugh brothers are only 15 months apart in age, and while they used to fight as younger men, horsing around, etc., they are very concerned about each other’s feelings during this time. “How is my brother doing?” Jim asked of a sports reporter as he was boarding a plane the other day. “We are not in contact, not even texting,” he said. While they both always called home for their dad’s advice (he got them both interested in coaching), the phones are silent right now. The brothers both agree that this is the time to put all their focus on the players and the game itself. Can you just imagine how the Harbaugh parents are feeling right now? So much pride, but at the end of the day, one will be victorious, and one will lose. That is the price you pay when you play the game, and in that family, I bet nobody is the loser ever. This Super Bowl game will surely go down in the history books, but better yet, it will be the day a lot of parents can teach sports pride, respect for one another and brotherly love. Good luck Jim and John Harbaugh! My two concerns will be

Oh yes, Super Bowl fever is building! This year’s game is most likely to be called the “Brother Bowl,” or that’s what I’m calling it anyway. Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens will be the first professional sports event coached by brothers. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh are keeping it very low key, according to their parents who spoke on a recent sports show. The only thing that is worrying the parents is where they will sit. Probably someplace in the middle, their dad said. While most of you
