ll my favorite things. This edition of Tri-State Living is about things I like. This issue just makes me feel comfortable. Read about Laney Johnson’s handmade wooden signs that have clever quotes and humorous phrases like, “You, Me & Tacos.” Laney states that she likes things that “put a smile on your face.” My favorite is “Be Nice or Leave.” I love the kindness and inclusion approach to business.

online retailer. Being an online business allows her time to build and make the signs. It also allows her to have one of my favorite things – dogs - work with her in her shop. How cool is that? Cicada Books & Coffee is a new, hip book store in Huntington, West Virginia. It is in the area known as Old Central City and is owned by Dawn and Katie Norman, a mother and daughter. If you want a cool, laid back place, this is it. It has everything that I personally love. Coffee check. Books - check. Used and antique furniture - check. Scones check. Cicada also has plants and a very mellow feel to the entire place. To be sure, it sells coffee and books, but the décor of the place made me feel very comfortable in a “my first college apartment” way. I wish I had a little more time to cover the other great stories in this issue, but I will let you turn the page and check them out as they only give me so much space and I have too many favorites.

Self and the world around Artist uses self portraits to examine multiple themes Story Heath Harrison | Photography Lacy Golden Davis
acy Golden Davis says photography allows her to tell her story the way she wants it to be told. The Waverly, Ohio, artist began as a drawing major, but switched to photography when earning her bachelor’s degree from Shawnee State University in 2010. Throughout October, her work was featured in the first Women of Appalachia Project, at the Monongalia Arts Center in Morgantown, West Virginia. The show is set to travel to Ohio University Southern’s Dingus Technology Center Art Gallery in Ironton, Ohio, where it will be on display from Nov. 14 – Dec. 15, followed by a display at the Multicultural Center Art Gallery in the Baker University Center at the school’s 10 | Tri-StateLiving
main campus in Athens, Ohio, from Jan. 14 - April 26, 2019. She also recently had a solo show at OU Chillicothe in the Stevenson Center Art Gallery and at the Pike Arts Guild in Waverly, Ohio, in May. Davis has built a large body of work, mostly using self portraiture to convey her ideas. For instance, one series, “In Bloom,” features herself and all of the pieces include parts of a flower. The work is a tribute to her grandmother, whom she said was a major influence on her outlook. “She was a nature worshipper and taught me a lot,” Davis said, noting that they spent a lot of time outdoors and that she instilled in her an appreciation for that environment. Another project featured old family photos and personal

items of her grandmother and other objects of her family. “I call them my treasures,” she of the items she photographs, such as old toys, a rug, a bedspread and plates, alongside old photos featuring someone with the item. She said the connection to family is something many relate to. “A lot of people have similar stories,” she said. Davis, who also works as a commercial photographer, photographing newborns with her studio, Bella Baby, said another thing she likes about the field is the ability to produce multiple copies of work. “You spend all this time on a drawing or painting,” she said. “Then, if you sell it, you can’t get it back.” She figures prominently in most of her work, which she says also includes themes of women’s health, beauty, life and death. “Even the ones that don’t have me are self portraits in some abstract way,” she said. Of the self portraits, she said she prefers it because of the personal narrative of her pieces. “It feels authentic,” she said. “Using a model would feel like a removal of self and I don’t like that disconnect. It’s symbolic for me and it would be hard to use someone in the same way.” To view galleries of Lacy Golden Davis’ work and to read a biography and artist’s statement, visit her website at www.lacygoldendavis.com. a Tri-StateLiving | 15

Story Dawn Nolan | Photography J. Bird Cremeans
ith sayings that range from thoughtful — “Less house, more home” — to sweet and silly — “You, Me & Tacos” — Laney Johnson’s handmade wooden signs resonate with customers of varying tastes. “I love using inspiring and humorous phrases … things that will put a smile on your face,” she said. “I’m always looking for something new to use, and inspiration can come from anywhere. Even when I’m not looking, I’ll see a quote or word that will give me an idea that, in turn, leads to another idea, and before long, I’ve made it into a sign.” Although she admits she “just stumbled into” making signs, Johnson, an Ashland, Kentucky native, has always had a knack for design. “I had a liquidation furniture store 18 | Tri-StateLiving
and really enjoyed creating and building, and before I knew it, I had gotten into handmade signs,” she said. “That love has been passed to me from my father, who is the most amazing carpenter. The desire to create is such a huge part of me. In addition to my sign shop, I spend a lot of time working on our [Laney and her husband, Scott’s] home. We are slowly working our way through remodeling the whole house ourselves.” Johnson launched her business, Pine & Birch in 2015. At present, she sells her signs through Etsy and Painted Fox Home, an “online retailer specializing in fabulous farmhouse décor.” “I’ve really enjoyed the online side of retail. The Etsy shop was my first experience with selling online, and I’ve definitely learned a lot since I started it and continue to learn more daily,” Johnson said. “The internet has really changed and continues to change business. It really
connects you to like-minded people, no matter where they live. It sounds like it would be the opposite, like you would have a more personal experience in a brick and mortar shop, but you really do build connections. I also love the fact that running an online shop allows you to offer your products to everyone. It opens up a world outside of your town. I’ve gotten to do custom pieces for customers on the opposite side of the country.” Social media has played a large role in helping Johnson establish relationships and build a loyal following. “Through Instagram, I get to see beautiful photos of my signs in their new homes and really get to know and have genuine friendships with customers as well as other small shop owners,” Johnson said. “There’s an amazing home décor and small business community on Instagram through which I have been really lucky to meet so many amazing people.” Tri-StateLiving | 21
Johnson has her own workshop she uses to fulfill orders and make new Pine & Birch products to sell. “I’ve been extremely lucky to have access to a building that belongs to my dad, and I’ve accumulated enough tools over the years to be able to do everything I need to in this one space,” she said. “Now, I’m in the process of organizing and restructuring my shop a bit to make things run as smooth as possible. I recently added a CNC plasma table to be able to start cutting metal signs, and I’m really excited to get to add to the shop in that way.” One of Johnson’s most popular signs and her personal favorite says, “You can totally sit with us.” “For me, it symbolizes kindness and inclusion. Everyone is welcome,” Johnson said. “I was scrolling Pinterest one day when that phrase popped up and it hit me that it would make a fun sign and would work perfectly in a dining or living room. We have one hanging by our dining table at home.”
Even though her style has changed some over time, Johnson said she often finds herself coming back to the same general look. “I’m not sure if it fits into any category. I love minimal, simple styles,” she said. “My entire home has white walls, which I find calming, and then I like to add warmth with wood and a little color in the décor. I love older pieces that have stories. You can also be sure you’ll see a plant in just about every corner. You’ll find a little bit of farmhouse mixed with a little bohemian. With so many beautiful things in this world I can never pick one style, and I think that’s what makes things fun … a beautiful mixture.” For the time being, Johnson runs Pine & Birch on her own, with help and a lot of support from Scott; her friend Kyra and three Australian Shepherds [who you can see on social media]. “I’m still in that place of business where I don’t have a
staff, but I’m a little too busy for one person to keep up, so organization is everything,” Johnson said. “I’m hoping to add a full-time helper sometime in the next year.” She plans to continue to add to her inventory regularly as well. “I just launched a fun new product — the ‘Woodgram’ — that has been really popular so far. I love letter boards, and this is a different take on that concept. It’s wooden shelves mounted to the wall with a set of letters and numbers that you can use to spell out quotes with. I love it because It’s changeable. I’ve just started to ship those out and love seeing the photos that come in with fun phrases on them.” Shop Pine & Birch online at etsy.com/shop/ pineandbirchky or paintedfoxhome.com.

Mother-daughter team has love of antique volumes
Finding the right
Story Dawn Nolan | Photography Rachael Layne
andwiched between two antique stores along Huntington’s 14th Street West, in the area known as Old Central City, stands a bright blue building. It is one of the newest additions to the “Antique Capital of West Virginia.” The exterior signage reads, “Cicada Books” and a chalkboard easel stands by the entrance, welcoming visitors looking for a place with good books and beverages. The shop, Cicada Books & Coffee, opened in July under the ownership of mother-daughter team Dawn and Katie Norman. “We had a lot of early attention and success, which has been very gratifying,”
Tri-StateLiving | 27
Katie said. “We had people — students, professors and staff — from Marshall here almost immediately. They’ve been our biggest demographic. We also have several regulars, which is great, and the reception, especially from other businesses owners on the street, has been amazing. We’re glad to be here, and they’re glad we’re here. We all have a common goal to bring more business to the area.” Katie is a Marshall University student studying English and biology, and Dawn has owned AMS Direct, a direct mail and marketing company, for more than two decades. Though Katie has worked for her mom before, this new venture has been a different experience. “Getting to work with — alongside — her and have this be a thing that was new and something that we did together was really fun,” she said. According to Katie, the idea of opening a bookstore was something that Dawn and her former husband/Katie’s father
had entertained for a long time. “My parents wanted to start a bookstore when they moved to Huntington from California about 25 years ago,” she said. “It just didn’t happen, though. They collected books for a long time, but they never found the right space for it.” That is until Dawn moved to Old Central City a couple of years ago. “I could see that this area was on the verge of a real revitalization,” Dawn said. So, when she noticed a for sale sign on a building, which formerly housed John’s Antiques and Restorations, she saw potential. “We were both like, ‘Hey, we could afford to buy and do something with that space.’ And this was the natural thing,” Katie said. “A bookstore kept seeming like a good idea, and once we started really looking at the numbers, we saw that we could do it and have it be a viable business.” Tri-StateLiving | 29 25
In the Biz | shopping
The two took things slow — Katie is in school and Dawn was/is still running AMS Direct — not to mention that there was a lot of work to be done. “We spent the first year and a half or so doing substantial repairs,” Katie said. Now, Cicada, with its painted exterior, purple epoxy floors, vintage furniture and earthy aesthetic really stands out among the other shops in the area. “We have plants, we have interesting rocks. I’m a biology major, and I really I find that angle interesting,” Katie said. “It also just it suits the whole vibe we were going for. We wanted it to feel like our own space, and we wanted to buy used furniture and try to find individual, interesting pieces without worrying so much about how they would match. We thought it would fit in well down here — being in the antiques district — and wouldn’t feel too alien, even though it’s a different kind of business than what’s around.”
When it came to choosing a name, Katie said that she and Dawn had a number of ideas, including Orange Books, Tortoiseshell Books and Sleepy Owl Books, but Cicada just seemed to work. “We had a long list, and then we narrowed it down to a shorter list, and then we made everyone we know give their opinion, and then we went back-and-forth some more, and finally, after like a solid year, that’s what we settled on. I like the imagery of cicadas … the sense of … a rebirth and dormancy and fresh starts,” Katie said. “I also distinctly recall a time when my mom cooked and made chocolate covered cicadas. It is kind of a family memory.” Upon entering Cicada, guests will can stop at the coffee bar, which offers a selection of espresso and tea drinks as well as an assortment of pastries sourced from other local businesses including Camden Corner, River and Rail Bakery and a baker at The Wild Ramp. Tri-StateLiving | 31

“We hired my good friend, Emily Kingery, to help us manage the coffee bar because that was the thing that Dawn and I had the least experience with, and she has been working as a barista and trainer for several years. She can answer all sorts of questions about coffee that most people can’t because she’s really into it. So, we knew she had the experience and the knowledge, and she just seemed like a natural choice to bring in on the project,” Katie said. “In addition to Emily, we have a small staff, but they’re a really great crew. I’ve been very happy with who we ended up with.” The back part of Cicada is a used bookstore, filled with material from all genres. “We have a large general fiction section, a good-sized children’s section and various non-fiction titles. We also have a small number of graphic novels and a shelf of consigned books from local authors.” Initially, Cicada’s inventory was bought in bulk from other suppliers, but Katie said, since the shop’s been open, it’s continuously been stocked with donations, for which, depending on certain criteria, like genre, title, condition, etc., people can receive store credit. “We get a lot of really interesting stuff in here, and it rotates pretty fast,” she said. “Yeah, we get new stuff pretty consistently.” Community is central to Cicada’s mission. In fact, it was designed, Dawn said, to be a “third place” [a term coined by urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg in his book, “The Great Good Place” to refer to “public places on neutral ground where people can gather and interact.”] 32 | Tri-StateLiving
“It’s not home, and it’s not work, but it’s a space where people can go to enjoy the company of other like-minded people,” she said. “I think that’s a good thing because there’s less and less of that, and that’s been our goal, to provide that type of place.” Currently, Cicada hosts an open mic night — where writers and readers can share their work or that of their favorite authors or poets — on the last Monday of the month from 7–9 p.m. and a game night on the third Friday of the month from 6–9 p.m. “For our first open mic night, we had about 40 people attend, which is a big crowd for a space our size,” Katie said. “Our game night has been like that, too. We’ve had pretty good attendance for the events we’ve had so far.”
A book club, (music) open mic, readings from local authors and a community discussion centered on the books “Hillbilly Elegy” and “What You Are Getting Wrong about Appalachia” are also in the works. “We want people to bring their ideas to us,” Katie said. “We want to be a space that people can use to do cool things and want to be play a role in helping to make cool things happen in Huntington.” Cicada Books and Coffee is located 604 14th Street West in Huntington. Hours of operation are Monday– Saturday 9 a.m.–9 p.m. and Sunday noon–6 p.m. For more information, call 681-378-3463.

3 MILLION POINTS OF LIGHT Louisvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mega Cavern offers two miles of Christmas lights, festive figures
Story Mark Shaffer | Photography Submitted
very year, people travel all over to enjoy Christmas lights that light up the December nights. But rarely does anyone ever get to underground to see miles of lights. But a hundred feet underground inside a former limestone mine; the Louisville Mega Cavern hosts “Lights Under Louisville.” “We’ve refrained from saying we are the only underground Christmas light show, just because we haven’t been able to verify we are,” said marketing manager Leslie Green. “But we haven’t found another, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one out there.” Mega Cavern was created by 42 years of mining limestone for roadways and bridges throughout the Midwest. The mine closed in the 1970s, leaving a 100-acre space, which is considered the largest building in Kentucky because of all the structural supports. It was purchased in 1989 to be used as a high-security business park. Starting on Nov. 17, visitors can go into the mine and take a 30-minute journey through the cave, which is decorated with three million Tri-StateLiving | 35

lights and more than 850 lit characters. Lights Under Louisville began in 2009 as part of the cavern’s move toward bein g used as an adventure park with the space is used for adventure entertainments like bike tours, zip lines and a tram ride. “The route for the lights is about two miles,” Green said. For years, people have been able to drive through cavern in the evenings but Green said this year, for the first time, people can ride one of the trams along the route. “During the day, people can take the Christmas Express, which is our open air tram ride through the light show,” she said, adding they couldn’t do that before due to zoning and safety issues. “But we relocated the light show route this year and now we can run it through there. It’s pretty cool.” Green said about 400-450,000 make the trek to see the

Lights Under Louisville. “We get people from all over the country,” she said. “We have people who fly in just for this. We get people from Chicago, Indianapolis, and Columbus who drive for hours to see this. It’s popular with a wide range of people.” There are different themes along the route, with crowd favorites like superheroes and Frozen but also more local flavor like the riverboat “Belle of Louisville” in lights. “There is really something for everybody,” Green said. “This is really a unique tour. It’s not something you see everyday, getting to go underground to see three million lights and defiantly not in the middle of the day. It has become a family tradition for so many families.” For more information on hours and tickets, go to louisvillemegacavern.com. a

isa Coburn said one of the reasons her family moved into their two-story, southern colonialstyle home in Aid, Ohio, was because of the surrounding neighborhood. “We felt it was a good area,” she said. “It’s out in the country and the school system here is just great. It’s nothing like living in the city, where you don’t know your neighbors.” She said the community, in the Symmes Valley district, is close and connected. “Everyone helps each other,” she said. “We refer to it as ‘our Mayberry.’” She lives at the home with her husband, Kenny, who works in the food service industry, and their sons, Nate, 14, and K.C., 24. The home, which has two large pillars on its front façade, has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a family room and a living room. Upstairs, there is an open foyer, which she said her sons use. “They play video games and have their friends over,” she said. The property, on County Road 378, contains 11 acres, on which the family has done landscaping, built a fire pit, a pool and a patio. She said they also chose the neighborhood because of its location, with Tri-StateLiving | 41
Huntington, West Virginia, and Ashland, Kentucky, being less than a half hour away. Coburn said the family has had to do very little in the way of renovations since moving in 2005, other than minor molding work. The one exception is the kitchen, which they expanded, with mahogany cabinets reaching to the ceiling. “I had the cabinets made in Alabama,” she said. “We rented a U-Haul, drove them back and installed them.” She said the granite for the kitchen counter came from Bailes Granite and Marble, located in Charleston, West Virginia, which deals in imported stone slabs. The next project they plan is to redo the master bedroom and its attached bathroom. Tri-StateLiving | 43
Landscaping materials came from Hatcher’s Greenhouse and Coburn said the family likes to work on their outdoor area, which also includes an upper patio. “We used a lot of big boulders as steps,” she says of the outdoor work. Pumpkins were a theme in her decoration, when the home was photographed in the fall. While floral arrangements come from Petals and Silks in Scott Depot, West Virginia, and Hobby Lobby. “They all come from local greenhouses,” Coburn said. The rest of the home’s furnishings have a varied origin. “Most of our décor has come from estate sales and
antique stores,” Coburn said, stating she prefers to take her time to find the right item, rather than just go out and grab one from a “big box store.” “It’s all about the hunt and making memories of the find,” she said. “I’ll wait to find the right kind of bowl, if I need to.” Coburn said the family often hosts others, with her children bringing friends over to enjoy the residence and its outside. “It’s so peaceful here,” she said. “We wanted to create an atmosphere where it feels like we don’t even need to take a vacation.” a Tri-StateLiving | 45

the last word
Ohio has something for everyone
inding roads, beautiful landscapes, stunning vistas. From the foothills of the Appalachians to the Ohio River, that is the bucolic setting of southern Ohio. I have always enjoyed traveling and, regardless of where I am, I find myself making the inevitable comparisons, and I remember why I look forward to returning to the slower pace of a place I call home. As someone who hails from southern Ohio, as well as someone who works for the Ohio Department of Transportation, it is not at all ironic that I am reminded of the Francis Duggan poem “All Day On The Highway.” All day on the highway that leads to the big town, The cars and the trucks keep buzzing up and down. I long for the sunlit place of many trees, Where the songs of the birds are carrying in the breeze. With one of the largest highway systems in the nation, Ohio has the fourth largest interstate system and the second largest bridge system in the country. We see daily that our network of roads and bridges is filled with the cars and trucks as Duggan describes, ‘buzzing up and down’ the highways. This movement of people and goods depicts the growth and prosperity that is Ohio. But it is the romance of the countryside and the open road that leads so many of us far from the cities and the suburban sprawl to the peace and quiet of our small towns. The flute of the shrike thrush I fancy I hear, In the quiet of the morning melodious and clear. 66 | Tri-StateLiving

Prior to joining ODOT in 2000, Fuller worked as an English instructor, foreign language instructor and an editor. When not at work, she enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, antiquing and spending time with her husband and daughter.
Amongst the smell of pollution and the traffic noise, Of such a pleasant thing ‘tis nice to visualize. No, it isn’t the shrike thrush we hear. But it is the whippoor-will, the cardinal, the robin and the sparrow that wakes us in the morning and lull us to sleep at night. It is the fragrant smells of lilac, honeysuckle and fresh sweet corn that bring the gentle reminder we’re home. Where many trucks and cars are driven noise and carbon release, Five miles south of here there is clean air and peace. In the sun of mid-morning the shrike thrush does sing, Just thinking of such beauty joy to me does bring. Ohio is such a wonderful place to live and raise a family. With such a small, geographic size, we can travel to the larger cities and take advantage of all they have to offer. Yet in a short amount of time, we can return to a far less hectic environment that is not so far away to find everything we need. And regardless of where we travel or how long we’re gone, we can always return to the peace and beauty and comfort of a place called home.
