VOLUME 4 NUMBER 7 JOYOFMEDINACOUNTY.COM

Finding Ourselves by Amy Barnes When all else fails to bring people together and remind them that deep down they love each other, the chance for unity and connectedness can be found in the warmth of a wellused kitchen. A fresh baked loaf of bread, warm chocolate chip cookies, a hearty stew, a perfectly seasoned roast can each provide a chance for all differences to be set aside in unified enjoyment of what is good. Sometimes we have to go all the way down to the very basics to rebuild. The hunger for good food and companionship run universal among all peoples. If we learned nothing else from the shutdowns caused by trying to control the spread of COVID-19, we learned just how much it means to us to share our lives, our food and our hugs with each other. Good food is a connector, a commonality that can be built on and used to heal wounds. It is not possible to remain angry when there is good, tasty food to enjoy and there is plenty of it for the sharing. The masks and social distancing that were part of the battle against the spread of COVID19 also became the separators that pushed us each farther away from the people and things that are comforting and remind us that we are loved. It is past time for all to come to the table, eat, laugh, and love, and when we do that, we will begin to build trust once again. After all, there has to be some level of trust to consume food prepared by another. We have had too many dark days, too much yelling about the extremists on both sides. There is a happy middle, and it needs to be found, cherished and fed until it roars louder than the hatred, disrespect and destruction. For me, I am working on replacing spices that I ran out of and missed so dearly and replacing what is old and somewhat stale. But I also am ordering for my children, now grown, with kitchens of their own. Independent thinkers, each one. I love ordering gift boxes of spices and seasoning blends to give to them to help them build their own orchestra of tempting flavors that will bring love and unity into their kitchens. A warm kitchen, with delicious food and a welcoming hug, can provide not only the delight and nutrition of delicious foods to grateful palates but also hope for a hungry heart to feed on that we will once again be the better people we know we can be.

A progression of skill: From the simple miniature Christmas stocking Karen Hochradel first learned to make to the trunks she now creates.

story and photos by Amy Barnes

I

t all started with a tiny Christmas stocking, with even tinier treasures peeping from its top. Well, it actually started before that with a love of dollhouse miniatures. This love led to a need for money to fund Karen Hochradel’s purchases for her collections and that led to the Christmas stocking. Selling the Christmas stocking and other miniatures she created gave her the funds to support her hobby. She discovered the nonprofit CIMTA, a cottage industry started by Carol Wenk in Cleveland in 1979, that sold locally made handcrafts and it was one of the places her work was sold. “When I joined the miniature club, I needed money to buy miniatures, I started making them to support my habit,” she said. Hochradel had so much fun making the stocking, she found that she started looking at everything around her as potential parts and pieces for an endless list of miniatures she would create.

A toothpick was no longer a simple toothpick, it could become a post, an edging for a shelf, and more. A doily was no longer something to display a dish on, it became something to be cut apart and the pieces used for all sorts of miniature furniture accents. Having started her hobby in 1974, Hochradel has an extensive collection of dolls, antique dollhouses, and assorted parts and pieces in the process of becoming new collectibles for others. A visitor to the well-kept Hochradel home would never guess how surrounded they are by Karen Hochradel’s miniature supplies. She has gotten as creative at tucking away, out of sight, her extensive collection of supplies as she is at creating the miniatures she sells. She opens what looks like a large decorative box in the living room and shows a stash of bits and pieces for creating miniature reproductions. “My upstairs, my basement, everything is just loaded,” Hochradel said. Hochradel is always looking for materials to use in her miniature creations.

She visits flea markets and keeps a sharp eye for anything she can use. She finds antique newspapers and shrinks them down to use for such things as replicas in dollhouse wall pockets or to line the inside of tiny trunks. It is challenging for her as items move more and more online since she does not use a computer or the internet. She said she does not even know how to run the vacuum cleaner in her house. Her husband, Paul Hochradel, handles that. “I couldn’t clean a house, but I could build one,”

Karen Hochradel said. When she was a little girl, she says she was very much a daddy’s girl. Wherever her father went, she was there, too. She was the only child member of the North Royalton Hunting Club because she insisted on accompanying her father to it. Her father was a mason and she learned about construction from him. Paul Hochradel was a child in Germany during World War II. He grew up to be a cabinetmaker. With the encouragement of relatives, he moved to the

Karen Hochradel focuses on Victorian pieces and has made all kinds of miniatures over the decades, including wall pockets, pickle jars, shaving mirrors, hat boxes, band boxes, miniature embroidery pieces, sewing baskets with notions, and old photos.

United States, and ended up lodging with the Leine family and their daughter, Karen. At first, Karen did not like Paul. He knew no English and liked to watch “American Bandstand” to try to learn the language. She loved to watch soap operas

and was not a “Bandstand” fan. Because Paul watched TV so much, Karen’s mother started calling Paul “Charlie,” after an old TV commercial where the request, “Bring up the new blue Cheer, Charlie,” was said. So how did Karen go from not liking Charlie to marrying him? “I don’t know, maybe because my mother trained him so well?” she responds, laughing. She said her mother had Charlie doing all kinds of household chores during his time with them. Charlie and Karen would talk through the heat grate that connected their bedrooms; he was on the floor below hers. He took English and civics classes to become a citizen. When he realized he would be drafted into the Army, he decided to sign up on the idea that he would get more of a choice as to where he would be sent. He thought, when he signed the papers, that he would be seeing new countries. Instead, he was sent right back to Germany.

other items at a relative’s home that he was able to use. The couple married in 1961 and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on July 29. Karen Hochradel’s parents were born in Germany, but Hochradel was born in the U.S. She had set a goal as a child to go to Europe one day, “come hell or high water.” Her dream finally did come true in the 1960s and she and Charlie spent four months traveling, leaving their young daughter in the care of Karen’s mother. Hochradel grew up in North Royalton, and she was 10 when the family home got indoor plumbing. Until then, they used a cistern as a water source. Cisterns were designed to collect rain from roof runoff to provide a source of water. The family had to time bathing with the rain to avoid running the cistern dry. Over the years, Karen, Charlie and their two daughters lived a variety of places. Their first home was in Strongsville. Then they bought a lot in Sharon Copley, and she designed the house they built there. Karen Hochradel said that when they moved, they sold the house to local news personality Robin Swoboda. The couple spent some years living in Medina in one of the Victorians on South Court. They quickly learned it took 22 gallons of paint to paint the entire

A Victorian graveyard scene that Karen Hochradel created, complete with a headstone

house. After the first time painting, they changed their strategy to painting one side of the house each year. They eventually sold the house and moved, returning to Medina and a new home in 2012. Hochradel had a career as a nurse that included time at Deaconess Hospital of Cleveland, Medina Hospital and a doctor’s office. At 80 years old, Hochradel does not spend much time standing. “I just do better with anything sitting, I don’t like to move,” Hochradel said. She says she is the oldest living member of the Cleveland Miniaturia Society, Inc. She joined the club in 1972, a year after it was formed. The COVID-19 shutdown meant that she would duck out to get supplies as needed but spent most of her time working on producing miniature trunks. She made 50 of them in preparation for when shows continued, Page 8

would being again. “Repetition is better for me,” she said, explaining that most of her work is focused on the trunks and fashion doll hats. She drew her own patterns for making the trunks and has wooden pattern blocks to shape each trunk. Charlie is 86 and, while he used to help her with the

construction of miniatures extensively in years past, he is no longer able. One of Karen Hochradel’s cherished possessions is a tiny reproduction of a J & P Coats floss cabinet. Charlie made it for her, even hand-winding each of the tiny floss bobbins to fill the cabinet’s drawers. Karen Hochradel and her work were featured in news articles in the mid to late 1970s, when dollhouses and miniatures were enjoying a huge surge in popularity. But now, it seems people have forgotten about the wonderful miniature world, she says. Even CIMTA was dissolved on February 26, 2019, after 40 years of existence. There is a message left behind on their website directing members to an alternative group at https://imomalv.com/ which has an annual show in Las Vegas, the next one is scheduled for 2022.

Clunky Boxes by Tyler Hatfield

New hires, promotions and certifications earned Billie Jo Farr, licensed massage therapist (LMT), has recently joined the staff of Knot Yourself, located inside of GotMilt Health and Fitness at 238 S. Elmwood Avenue, Medina. Farr is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage and is licensed with the Ohio State Medical Board.

Last month’s column (https://bit.ly/3iFe8Ns) focused on how an internet service package affects Wi-Fi performance and the functioning of the hardware. This month’s column focuses on the modems and routers. Modems and routers bring the internet into homes and to devices. But what, exactly, do these clunky boxes do? While sitting on a kitchen counter, office desk or maybe even a bedside table, modems and routers work nonstop to convert data from what a provider sends to something your device can understand. First, a modem does the big part of the work. The modem connects directly to a cable line or something similar and reads tons of data every second. While doing this, it catches parts that it knows you want and sends them through to a router. Routers handle the distribution of the data by sending it through ethernet cables or Wi-Fi to computers, phones and printers. It does this by giving every device a unique address just like your home has. Routers know where to distribute data because that data has a device's address on it, like a mailed package has a physical address for it to be delivered to. Neither routers nor modems will work without the other. The modem is what brings the internet into a home, but it cannot deliver that data to individual devices. A router can send data to devices, but without data to send it is useless. But if both are important, why do they need to be separate? They do not! While not as common anymore, modem and router combo devices do exist. Typically, but not always, these devices sacrifice a little bit of Wi-Fi strength or modem speed to remain compact. For smaller homes or people with few devices, these combo units can be great economical space savers.

BUSINESS: THE NETWORKER

Getting the Engagement Right

Bringing good people good companies

by Bob Arnold Networking is not just meeting people. It involves engagement, also. Engaging with people makes networking productive, however, not always in ways you might be thinking. ‘Productive’ is a purposeful word I use frequently to get across this point: You must see results from networking, or you are going to be discouraged. I have seen it so much, I call it a law. I was on a virtual call with a group in Los Angeles. One participant asked for advice on how to network at a conference after-party he had been invited to with some of the top copywriters in the world. The gathering was to be at Stefan Georgi’s home. Georgi is a copywriting coach and mentor. What do you think the top answer was? Before I answer that, you have a decision to make when you are in this situation. Is this about me or about the person I am talking with? How would you answer that? Do not let it go to default mode, or you might be giving the wrong answer. It must be about the person you are talking with. This takes presence of mind! The top and first answer the group came up with was to listen. Yes, to simply listen. They are right, of course, because the more you listen, the more you learn, and the more the person you are talking with will want to spend time with you. I added one little tweak to the advice: Listen and ask good questions on the topic of conversation. Why is that an important piece? The conversation does not become about you, it becomes about them. Believe me, they want to talk about themselves. Courting their interests will win their favor and you will be invited to events you never imagined you would be at. The other thing to know is that the person who listens and respectfully asks questions is the one most likely to win their business. I hope this helps you in your next conversation. Become known for your attentive listening and good, topical questions. Be productive!

Where You Stick It

D

by Amy Barnes Ahhh, summer, when the advertising signs go into full bloom on tree lawns. Before a business owner rushes to sign a contract for floppy signs to be scattered like so much confetti, it is important to have it clearly stated exactly where signs will be placed. Medina, Brunswick and Wadsworth all ban signs on tree lawns, also known as the devil strip or that-strip-of-grass-andpossibly-trees-between-streets-and-sidewalks. If not careful when hiring a company to install signs, it is easy for a business to get into trouble. Floppy signs on tree lawns, blowing back and forth in the wind, are distracting to drivers; are usually difficult to read while driving (another source of driver distraction); and look rather awful when trash collects around them. Placing signs in yards without permission is another big mistake. Keep in mind that a sign in a yard shows an endorsement by the homeowner and can serve as a great referral if permission were granted for the sign’s placement. Otherwise, the business owner may be dealing with an angry homeowner who could have been a future customer.

While a business might not place the sign itself, the problem is the company installing the signs leaves no evidence of its name, there is only the business mentioned on the sign to take the backlash. Lack of attention to detail in sign placement sends the message that a business is careless or sloppy in its work and does not care about its customers. The perception is that a business does not care about community and cares only about self-promotion. Signs placed on tree lawns also smack of desperation, a quick, middle-of-the-night last-ditch effort to get sales. If you decide to use these signs to promote your company, drive around after they are installed and ensure they are where they should be. It may be time consuming, but it is much better than having an advertising effort that goes horribly awry and becomes an expensive mistake in dollars, as well as reputation.

HEALTH: OF MIND AND BODY Finding Satiety by Kelly Bailey Everywhere you turn, there is information about healthy eating and weight loss. With more than half of Americans falling into the overweight category, it is no wonder we are interested in these topics. The information overwhelm is real! Here is a pared down version of some of the best nutrition advice available. Do not drink calories. Sugary drinks and alcohol are nonnutritive and simply do not trip the brain’s satiety center. In fact, they might make you even more hungry! Drink plain water most of the time. Chew, chew, chew. Chewing activates digestive enzymes and trips the brain’s satiety center. The more chewing, the better the digestive capacity and the faster you will feel full. Chew on fiber-rich veggies. It takes less than one minute to chug 100 calories of soda. It would take nearly an hour to chew 100 calories of carrots. Which do you think will be harder to over consume? Similarly, veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, and broccoli are filling and full of cell-building nutrition. Eat real food, not food claims. Brands make a lot of money on health claims. My daughter’s sugary cereal claims it has “whole grain goodness” and “10 vitamins and minerals.” Use common sense and eat real food. What is “real”? Anything that requires little or no processing by humans: fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and seafood. Track what you eat for a few days. Many of us do things (including eating) on autopilot. Tracking will bring an acute awareness of everything consumed, including all of the things we tend to forget, like that handful of candy you grab every time you walk past a co-worker’s desk or the crusts you ate while making your child’s peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich. Allow for indulgence but get right back on track. Very few people can be perfect all the time. Ditch the all-or-nothing thinking. Have that pizza on Friday night, but get right back to healthy eating the next day!

Nice Rack by Robert Soroky Finally, there are roof racks. If a vehicle has factory-installed roof rails, it will need cross rails, foot packs, and the actual bike rack rails to complete the system. Roof racks can be cumbersome to get bikes onto, especially for shorter people, and are typically purchased when a hitch cannot be mounted on a vehicle and a trunk style is not wanted. Before buying any type of rack, be sure to check manufacturers’ fit guides to confirm which model works best with your vehicle.

R Sometimes, bike rides can be simple adventures starting from the driveway. Other times, it is about tossing the bike on the car and heading to faraway destinations. If you have an SUV, it is easy enough to load a bike, but it takes up a lot of space and is not always practical. The better solution is to get a car rack to transport bikes. Trunk racks are the most popular and least expensive type. These lightweight racks attach to the car trunk with straps or cables, have extending arms that can hang up to three bikes, and may have built-in locks Although affordable, trunk racks can be cumbersome to install, with some preventing use of the trunk and rear windshield wipers while attached. Also, if the bike has a stepthrough frame, a separate bike beam is required, which attaches between the seat and handlebar, allowing the bike to hang on the rack arms. Another popular style is hitch racks, which slide directly into 1 1/4 -inch or 2-inch hitch mounts located under a vehicle’s rear bumper. Hitch racks tend to be heavier and more expensive, but are easier to install, do not touch the car directly, have locking options, and fold down to allow trunk access. Hitch racks come in either the extending arm style (holding up to five bikes), or the lower-position platform style where bikes rest on top of the rack and are held in place by adjustable arms. Some platform racks are even designed to handle 29-inch wheel sizes, as well as the weight of ebikes.

Horses Helping Children column and photo by Kent Von Der Vellen

Judy Fox pets one of her JAF’S Therapy in Motion horses.

JAF’s Therapy in Motion combines founder Judy A. Fox’s love of horses and children with therapy to help children deal with disabilities and other problems. Juday and her husband, Mike Fox, had owned horses for most of their adult lives, but the idea of starting a horse therapy program came to Judy when she helped with her mother-inlaw’s horse therapy sessions after she had a stroke and aneurysm in 1998. In 1999, JAF’s Therapy in Motion was founded. JAF’s uses various techniques to help children cope with physical, emotional and behavioral challenges; serious illness; or trauma. The children learn to care for and ride horses, which helps them develop strength and learn how to use their muscles. It goes beyond physical therapy because the children build confidence by being responsible and committed to the care of the horses. One young client, who has cerebral palsy, said she loves riding the horses. Horseback riding makes her use her leg muscles to help hold her in place and her core muscles to keep her balance. Depending on each child’s needs, hippotherapy can be used to focus on specific areas. For example, if the horse moves faster, it helps open the hips up, allowing for more flexibility. Having children throw objects while riding forces them to use core muscles to keep their balance.

Four of JAF’s five horses are from the American Bashkir Curly Horse family and are hypoallergenic. The therapists mentioned the horses sense if the children are not using their muscles correctly or are having difficulty and will stop moving to allow for needed adjustments. The staff at JAF’s are Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship certified and many have additional certifications. One of the therapists who works with her clients at JAF’s is Theresa Piatt, who has 22 years of experience in hippotherapy. JAF’s has 30 volunteers but is always need of more. Cheryle Costa has volunteered at JAF’s the longest at 12 years. She originally came to be with the horses but fell in love with helping the children and stayed. Though JAF’s has held fundraisers in the past, it depends mostly on donations. For more information or to volunteer, go to https://bit.ly/3kLvQl3 or https://bit.ly/2Tuc2HH. Kent Von Der Vellen is a 20-year Medina resident. He has been a volunteer for various youth sports teams, is a member of the Medina Lions Club, and, with his wife, Kim, founded the Jakob F. Von Der Vellen Memorial Foundation. Contact Von Der Vellen by e-mailing Gems@BlakeHousePublishing.com or by calling 330-421-0863.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT: ROLL ’EM!

Finding Acceptance by Hunter Barnard

photo provided by Disney

For my review this month, I chose to do it on the movie “Luca.” “Luca” is a movie about a kid that is kind of a fish and kind of a human. When he is in the water, he is a sea monster, and on land, he is human. He is a very nice sea monster, and he has a family and a whole community in the ocean but being a human is really fun to him, too. Luca meets another sea monster that lives on land, and he finds out it is very fun to live up there. The only catch is when he gets wet, he turns back into a sea monster, and the people that live in the town near Luca do not like the sea monsters. They do not know that they are actually nice, so they are trying to hurt them. But even though Luca knows it is dangerous and he is not allowed up there, he still goes up and makes friends anyway. My favorite part of the movie was when Luca and his friend were learning how to ride a bike. They ended up going down a very big hill, and they could not control their bike very well. It was super funny because I do not think I would have been able to control my bike very well either, and I definitely would have fallen, too. The movie was not exactly funny, but it was still a very good movie. I really liked the story and it made me laugh at some parts, but it was not as funny as some other movies I have watched. Luca was really cool, and I hope I can swim as well as he does one day. I think anyone that likes fairy tales would really like this movie because it was really cool! Hunter Barnard is an energetic 8-year-old who is a former Brunswick resident who now attends Berea City Schools and likes to share his opinion. He is assisted in writing his column by his mother, Jessica Rapenchuk.
