Q &A

What Is An Antibody Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT)?

These tests use blood samples from a finger prick. RDT’s are like pregnancy tests, in that the test shows colored lines to indicate a positive or negative result. In the context of COVID-19, these tests most frequently test for patient (IgG and IgM) antibodies. (This is NOT a test for COVID-19)

How Long Does The Antibody Test Take?

15 Minutes. After taking your medical history, we will prick your finger for blood. After a short wait, we will go over the results with you.

When Can You Get The Antibody Test?

Trillium Creek Dermatology is NOW scheduling patients for the antibody rapid test. Cost of test at time of appointment is $60 cash/check/credit card. Insurance not accepted. (This is NOT a test for COVID-19)

Why Get The Antibody Test?

To know if you have had COVID-19 and have built up antibodies toward it. This can make going back to work less stressful for people who have built up antibodies to COVID-19. It is possible you have had the virus and recovered. NOTE: This is NOT a test to see if you have COVID-19. It tests whether or not your body has developed antibodies currently or in the past.

A PASTIME MECCA THE FOUNDRY ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A FUN NIGHT OUT

12

Medina County Lifestyle | June 2020


THE FOUNDRY ENTERTAINMENT COMPLEX – HOUSING FOUNDRY SOCIAL, HIGH VOLTAGE INDOOR KARTING AND MAD BREWING COMPANY – IS MEDINA COUNTY’S PREMIER PLACE TO LET LOOSE AND HAVE SOME FUN. There is no shortage of things to experience at this entertainment hub. With over 150,000 square feet – 80,000 that has yet to be developed – the Foundry is a pastime mecca for adults. THE HISTORY OF THE FOUNDRY The Foundry Entertainment Complex is located in a true, historic foundry that manufactured metal castings throughout the 20th century. In fact, it’s been standing for more than 125 years; since 1912 to be exact. Before it transitioned into the Foundry Entertainment Complex, it was a manufacturing plant for air conditioner castings.  HIGH VOLTAGE INDOOR KARTING High Voltage was the Foundry Entertainment Complex’s first installment, opening just over five years ago. Because it is an indoor facility, it  offers high-speed go-karting no matter the weather! That’s right, this indoor racetrack  can even be experienced during those harsh Ohio winters. And when the weather is good, they also have the state’s largest outdoor track add on that lets racers go from inside to outside and then back in.  It is also the longest straightaway on the track. In all, it takes up about 40,000 square feet of the Foundry Entertainment Complex and can be enjoyed by adults and younger ones alike, as both adult and junior karting are offered. THE FOUNDRY SOCIAL The Foundry Social, a 30,000-square-foot arcade, specializes in exceeding expectations. From skee ball and billiards to duckpin bowling, a video game wall dubbed “The Arena,” ping pong, bocce and  favorite old school arcade games such as Pac-Man and Mortal Kombat, they quite literally have it all. Since opening in November 2019, it’s quickly turned into a local attraction and a coveted weekend hangout spot. Aside from its plethora of nostalgic games, it has a full-service bar, party and event  space rooms and dining menu featuring dishes that are more than your average pub fare.

HOT SPOT (CONTINUED) From a build-your-own burger option to smoked meatballs smothered  in out-of-thisworld  barbecue sauce, the Foundry Social’s bar menu offers traditional American cuisine with a twist. Similarly, their cocktail list offers recognizable booze-filled beverages with unique flavor combinations. Such drinks include their Black Tea Mule, featuring black tea-infused

bourbon,

and ginger juice, fresh lime juice, ginger beer and a lime wheel garnish, as well as their  Bartender’s Spritz, a rendition of  the traditional Aperol Spritz. And if you’re looking for a real treat, their beer cocktails are a musttry; I  recommend the Chocolate Drizzled Raspberries – it’s a great dessert treat!  MAD BREWING MAD Brewing is the newest addition to the Foundry Entertainment Complex. Unlike its siblings, High Voltage and Foundry Social, MAD Brewing is the perfect place to escape the crowds and drink a fresh brewski.  “MAD is a little slice of heaven,” says Foundry Entertainment Complex co-owner, Pigs Do Fly Appetizer

Gene Whaley. “It’s a great place for adults to socialize but it’s also very low key and quiet compared to High Voltage and Foundry Social. We’ve got ample outdoor patio

Smoked Meatball Suckers Appetizer

space for people to enjoy during the warmer months and even an outdoor firepit.” Gene also explained that one of the reasons MAD is special is that it is a no-frills space that emphasizes all things beer. Although this means MAD doesn’t offer wine and cocktails, they spice up their tap list via their guest brewmaster program. He says, “We have a monthly guest brewmaster program that allows a smaller, independent brewer to showcase four of their beers on our taps. Whichever beer sells the best will end up staying on our taps for an additional three months. It means that we always have something new for people to try, but it also helps support the many independent brewmasters out there.”  BREATHING LIFE INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD  Since

the

Foundry

Entertainment

Complex opened its doors, the surrounding neighborhood has experienced a sort of revitalization. In fact, this is one thing that Gene says he is most proud of. 14

Medina County Lifestyle | June 2020


“Since we’ve moved in, we’ve noticed the neighborhood has experienced a lot of rejuvenation,” he explains. “New roads and sidewalks have been constructed and we’ve seen that a lot of the surrounding homes have been flipped and renovated.” Gene also emphasizes that the Foundry Entertainment Complex makes an effort to respect the neighborhood by closing at a reasonable hour and ultimately reducing the amount of late-night noises and boisterousness. Combined, the businesses that make up the Foundry Entertainment Complex offer a quintessential night-out experience for adults.

A Fa m i l y Tr a d i t i o n GLANCE INTO THE WORLD OF AMISH FURNITURE

ARTICLE WARREN WATKINS

ERVIN YODER STARTED HIS FURNITURE STORE, TWIN LOCUST FURNITURE, IN 2003 IN A SMALL SHOP AT HIS HOME IN HOLMES COUNTY WITH TWO LARGE LOCUST TREES IN THE FRONT YARD, WHICH BECAME THE SYMBOL AND NAMESAKE FOR HIS BUSINESS. Back then, Ervin was making dovetail drawers, cabinets, television stands and entertainment centers on a very small scale compared to the amount of business that he does today. In 2009, he moved the business to its current location, which is located at 11575 Salt Creek Road, in Fredericksburg – about 15 miles south of Wooster.

Medina County Lifestyle | June 2020


AMISH FAMILY AND TRADITIONS. Ervin has a large extended Amish family of cousins, uncles  and friends that help with all aspects of the business at his location and at theirs.  For instance, a cousin may have equipment that is better for making chairs than what he has at his shop. So to cut his lead time down, Ervin outsources that work to his family and pays them instead of using parts for chairs that are not authentic to the Amish tradition of furniture making. His father is a timber buyer and one of his brothers has a dry kiln that dries the lumber and then he sells it.  And yet another brother has a finish shop that finishes all the pieces used to make the furniture.  “With our furniture, we’ve basically got our hands on it from the tree to the finished product,” Ervin says At 14 years old, on the day after his last day of formalized school education (Amish go to school up until the eighth grade), Ervin immediately went to work for his uncle who needed help and was very busy at the time with his own furniture shop. Ervin worked with his uncle for nine years, learning the trade until he started making television stands and entertainment centers out of his own shop at home with his wife. Eventually, customers who would stop in to see or pick up the entertainment centers he was making started asking him if he could build different types of furniture for them.  From there Ervin opened a showroom and started making all kinds of different furniture.  WORD OF MOUTH CUSTOMERS THAT KEEP COMING BACK. Twin Locust keeps very busy with a large customer base of over 10,000. Customers love their bedroom and dining room sets, whiskey barrel tables, bars, chairs and other custom furniture.  “We do a lot of different types of styles of furniture. We’ll do rustic, modern, contemporary…anything really, it just depends on what the customer wants,” Ervin explains. Their sliding barn doors are a big seller for them as well. The doors create a rustic look and add character to any room by using reclaimed barn siding.   “We do a lot of barrel and double barrel tables, which are

“ W i t h o u r f u r n i t u r e , w e’ v e basically got our hands on it from the tree to the finished product.”

really popular as well right now,” he says. “For our whiskey barrel tables, we use authentic Jack Daniels barrels that my cousin is able to buy directly from Jack Daniels. We also use wine barrels for some of our tables as well.” Part of the appeal of the tables is that they are very durable. Ervin uses three coats of a catalyzed lacquer finish on the barrels, which protect them from hot surfaces up to a temperature of 188 degrees.

Another item that Twin Locust Furniture specializes in is media cabinets for television and sound components. Ervin explains: “One of our most popular television-related  items right now is the sliding barn door entertainment center." The unit has two big sliding barn doors that, when closed, are a stunning accent to their customer’s family room wall and when opened, expose the television and components that are mounted behind the doors. Since having a website to promote the business is not allowed in the Amish culture, Ervin welcomes and encourages customers to come into the showroom to see and feel the furniture for themselves.  Twin Locust offers in-home delivery and set-up as well. And while the majority of Ervin's customer base is right here in Northeast  Ohio and Central Ohio, the word-of-mouth recommendations have spread much farther than that. He tells me that he has delivered his 100 percent  authentic, Amish furniture everywhere in the country from California to Florida, as well as many other states.  However, Ervin emphasizes  that Medina is “by far” his largest customer base. Lucky for us that we are so close to one of the finest authentic Amish furniture craftsmen in the country. Take the time to head down to the Twin Locust Furniture showroom located at 11575 Salt Creek Road in Fredericksburg today or call 330.695.2240 for more information on their products and services.

They also seek to make biking easy and accessible. For instance, they offer pickup and delivery services. If you’re too busy to make it to one of their stores, they’ll pick up your bike, complete your desired services or repairs and return it back to you when it’s complete. If you’re in the market to buy a new bike or upgrade to an electric bike, Century Cycles has dozens of options and they’re committed to helping you get fitted for a bike that is not only comfortable, but something you enjoy riding!  “Electric or e-bikes have been really popular lately,” says Bob. “A lot of people don’t know this, but there are actually three different classes of e-bikes – 1, 2 and 3.” He continues: “They aren’t like motorcycles; they’re considered pedal-assist bikes. And class  1 and 2 e-bikes  provide pedal assistance up to 20 miles per hour. The electric component of the bike is really there to assist you in your ride.” In addition to their e-bike selection, Century Cycles sells mountain, commuter, adventure, road, BMX, fitness, comfort, hybrid, cruiser and kid’s bicycles. And when you purchase a bike from them, you automatically become a preferred customer. As a preferred customer, you’ll get a free Century Cycles t-shirt, a free 90-day safety check on your new bike and 15% off  all regularly-priced parts, clothing, and accessories purchased on the same day. Plus, supporting Century Cycles means you become a part of their amazing community.
