Everything he uses to care for his own animals can be purchased at Rio Lima. “I’ve been messing with cows and horses all my life,” he said. Lima was raised in Brazil on his family’s range before coming to the states when he was 23. He first lived in Miami, but visited friends in Ohio and decided to move here in 2002. “I love this place,” he said. Lima has passed tests in order to become an expert in the brands of feed he carries, and he expects his employees to be know their stuff as well. “That’s my No. 1 pet peeve — that they have the knowledge,” he said. “All my employees are very well trained. I send them all over the country to training and expos. We have the knowledge to help you.” The staff at the new Troy location trained for the job at the New Carlisle store, where they sell 70 to 80 tons of feed each month. If you stump the staff with a question, they go to Lima. If he can’t help you, he gets in touch with the suppliers to figure it out. “I’ll give you the knowledge to help you make the right choice for your animals,” he said. Customer service and honesty are two other values high on Lima’s priority list. “I will not sell you anything I don’t think you need,” he said. Rio Lima Tack and Feed in Troy is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Silver Spoon celebrates first anniversary BY LINDY JURACK iN75 Editor TROY — The Silver Spoon Frozen Treat Factory owner Chad Mason says the warm winter and spring helped bring customers in the door during the new business’ first year, but anyone who has been in to dish up their own frozen treat would probably say the unique yogurt flavors and bevy of toppings are what draws them in. The Silver Spoon, 1446 W. Main St., is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month, offering coupons in the paper and to its loyal customers via email. Mason, who left his job in the education field to pursue a dream of having a family business, said they’ve made it to the milestone many small businesses never reach. “We survived what everyone said would be the roughest time,” Mason said. “There’s still the fear of the unknown, but we feel pretty good.” Mason expected the winter to be a slow time for a frozen food shop, and it was, but he feels blessed the season’s temperatures weren’t extreme. “We were very fortunate. A lot of things went our way. We had the warmest winter and the warmest spring in 100 years,” he said. To entice customers during the colder months, Mason added coffee, tea and hot chocolate to its menu. When he poured some java for himself one day and found it too hot, he added a bit of vanilla yogurt to cool it down, and a new idea was born. The employees started experimenting with different fla-

vor combinations, and then started encouraging customers to do the same. Pumpkin yogurt in coffee was popular in the fall, and others enjoyed mint yogurt in coffee and tea. The toppings bar has caramel and whipped cream that also can be added to coffee. Now that we are having a record hot summer, you can still get that coffee flavor, minus the hot drink, with coffee and cappuccino frozen yogurt flavors. Hot drinks are available all year round. Since its opening, The Silver Spoon also has added customer punch cards. One visit will earn you one punch, and nine punches will get you a free 10-ounce yogurt with four toppings. As a bonus, if it’s below 40 degrees outside when you come in for frozen yogurt, you get two punches. If you brave 20degree weather, you’ll get three punches. Mason said people really like using the punch cards. It also has had a unique affect on the owners, allowing them to see how much the community has rallied behind their new venture. In the winter, Mason had several customers who earned a free yogurt tell him they would wait until summer to use it because they knew winter was a rough time for them. “That really touched us,” Mason said. “It makes you so appreciative for the
community.” If you haven’t yet been to The Silver Spoon, it works like this: First you take a cup and fill it with frozen yogurt. There are always 10 different flavors on the wall and every two dispensers have another handle that squeezes out a twisted combination of the two flavors. For example, you can get peanut butter or chocolate, or peanut butter and chocolate twisted together, one of the most popular flavors. Next, you head to the toppings bar, which has everything from fruit to candy to cereal laid out on turntables that make it easy for children to reach. If you’d like, you can top it off with caramel, chocolate sauce, sprinkles and whipped cream. Your prices is calculated by how much your creation weights. Mason started with 200 flavors to choose from, and in a year, has only gone through about 70 to 80, meaning the shop will have most likely have new flavors for its whole second year, too. Blue raspberry recently made its way into the dispensers, and German chocolate cake and Georgia peach are heading there soon. A new flavor is swapped out with another every week to 10 days. Customers won’t see the same exact toppings on every visit either. Mason said since opening they’ve added Nerds candy and

When people come in, they can try new things,” he said. “You can be as creative as you want.” Getting creative is highly encouraged at The Silver Spoon. Customers are welcome to post their unique combinations on The Silver Spoon’s Facebook page and name their creation. If it sounds good, and what combo doesn’t, the staff posts a sign in the store right next to the cups displaying your name and recipe. Mason said kids especially love that and often come in to have their picture taken by the sign. “We wanted to be more than a place to go get something to eat. We wanted to be a destination,” Mason said. Some of the best recipes from customers have been for treats that taste like apple dumplings and ba-
nana splits. The upside to frozen yogurt is it can taste like pie, ice cream and other desserts, but it comes with way less calories. All the yogurt at The Silver Spoon is fat free, as well as gluten free. It has some flavors sweetened with stevia for people who watch their sugar, and it offers sorbets, which are dairy free for the lactose intolerant. “We have a lot of families who come in with one kid on a dairy-free diet and another on gluten-free, and this is a one-stop shop for them,” Mason said. “I’ve had a lot of families say this is the only place they can have dessert together.” Warm weather, being a fun place to go, offering a delicious product and catering to those with dietary needs, has all led to The Silver Spoon’s success in its first year, but Mason gives credit where credit is due, and some of the suc-
cess he says is thanks to social media. “Facebook has been huge for us. We have 1,500 fans on Facebook in one year,” he said. “We had 60 in the first two days, and when you get 60 people talking about your business, it’s amazing how fast it becomes 600.” And for good reason. If you’re not a fan of Silver Spoon on Facebook, you’re missing out. Mason’s wife, Carrie, who does most of the Facebook posting, chooses two fans at random each day to win a free yogurt. Employees at nearby businesses can post on the page saying their coworkers are hungry, and they might be chosen for a spontaneous yogurt delivery. Facebook fans also get to see what is in the freezer at the shop each day. When Mason changes out flavors, whatever is left in the dispensers gets put into a cup and stowed in the freezer. Customers can take the cups home for just 75 cents. New flavors are posted on Facebook along with fans’ combinations. Having fans online means a lot to the owners, but seeing people come in loyally means even more. “We go into the community and see people who are our customers working as cashiers or waiting tables. Then when they come in and give you their hardearned money, you’re extremely grateful because you realize where it came from,” Mason said. Stop in at The Silver Spoon Frozen Treat Factory to say “happy birthday” and have fun concocting your frozen treat. For more information, call the shop at (937) 552-9002.

Harris Jeweler to give away jewelry if temps climb TROY — This month, Harris Jeweler in Troy is hoping to give away a half a million dollars in free jewelry. If the temperature hits 95 degrees Sept. 1, the first $500,000 worth of jewelry the store sells between Aug. 6 and Aug. 25 will be refunded 100 percent. The temperature will be gauged based on the re-
porting from the Dayton International Airport weather station. So what’s the catch? There is none. If the temperature hits, the store will pay out. “We were tired of the heat wave this summer and thought we would have some fun with it,” said Bonnie Harris Frey,
owner of Harris Jeweler. “Anyone who purchases any in-store or special order jewelry or store gift certificate that is bought and paid for during that time frame will get their purchase free if the weather station shows a temperature of 95 degrees or above on Sept. 1.” Even cooler yet, the
temperature the store chose as the tipping point is nowhere near a record breaking temperature. “Last year, we registered temperatures on Labor Day weekend of 98 degrees,” Frey said. “If we are going to run a promotion we want to make sure the big payout is a good possibility.”
And with the way summer has been this year, the odds are stronger than ever. The store plans to have many people shop early for Christmas because of the possibility of getting their Christmas gifts for free. The promotion also is perfect for those people ready to buy engagement rings. They al-
ready know they will be purchasing one, why not go somewhere with great value and service where you also have the possibility to get your engagement ring for free? So what do you have to do? Come into Harris Jeweler and buy your jewelry between now and Aug. 25. Then pray for heat!
Mobility scooters will be available for rent at the Miami County Fair by the hog arena. Handicapped parking is available on the north side of the fairgrounds as well. DeWitt got into the scooter rental business at public venues like fairs three years ago after a medical problem prevented extended mobility. Since then, he has rented scooters at fairs in Champaign, Clark, Madison and Hardin counties, in addition to Miami County last year.
“What started the whole idea and gave me the innovation to do it was a serious medical issue I had,” DeWitt told a Piqua Daily Call reporter last year. “I had problems with my legs, and I couldn’t really walk 100 feet without being in severe pain and needing to stop.” He said after someone loaned him a scooter, he immediately began thinking of ways to assist other people who had mobility issues, but still wanted to attend
Francis Furniture hosts floor model sale Francis Furniture is having its floor model clearance sale this weekend at the Sidney and Troy stores. Both locations are running 50 percent off of the suggested retail price on any of its floor models. The sale starts this Friday and concludes Monday. Troy store manager Adam Romer said this is the first year Francis is running this sale in August.
“We’ve only ran it once before, last December, and had great success. We use these times to clear out the floor samples to make room for new merchandise,” he said. In the fall and spring, Francis employees head to North Carolina to purchase new products and keep up with the current trends in the industry. This sale is in preparation for that buying trip. Both the Troy and Sid-

Jeremy Renner and Edward Norton star in “The Bourne Legacy.”
When long-term congressman Cam Brady commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naive Marty Huggins, director of the local tourism center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice, but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As election day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there’s room to dig a whole lot deeper.
