HEALTH & FITNESS Sleep deprivation has risks, say experts Many people don’t realize that lack of sufficient sleep can trigger mild to potentially life-threatening consequences, from weight gain to a heart attack. Anecdotal evidence supports the notion that when you’re tired and run-down, you’re more likely to get sick. A 2009 study in Archives of Internal Medicine offers some proof.

Local theaters join forces for roundtable, Web site

S

even of the Mahoning Valley’s community theaters launched a roundtable and new online resource, The Mahoning Valley Theater Buzz (http://www.mvtheaterbuzz. com), in late March. The idea for the roundtable started in January when representatives from area community theaters met to discuss how they could benefit one another through coordinated scheduling, marketing, and other efforts to raise awareness of theater in the region. The roundtable’s founding members are Boardman Community Theatre, Oakland Center for the Arts, Salem Community Theatre, Stage Left Players of Lisbon, Victorian Players, The Youngstown Playhouse, and Youngstown State’s University Theater. “The first thing I did when I returned to the area in May was ask, ‘How are all these groups helping each other?’ I was surprised to find that there was no real structure with which to do that,” said roundtable organizer Michael Dempsey. “Once we sat down together, it was instantly apparent that there was real enthusiasm for working together.” Dempsey, a professional TV, film and theater writer and director, said that even at this early stage, better communication has yielded results with coordinated season schedules. Roundtable member Cheryl Games, another Valley native who recently returned to the area, pitched her idea for creating a Web site that would coordinate the resources and activities of area theaters. “I’d had success doing theater marketing and running this kind of online presence for The Falcon Theatre in Burbank, Calif., owned by Garry Marshall. So I knew that by coordinating the marketing efforts of all of the smaller theaters, we could make a big impact in gaining awareness and building our audience.” Games, who teaches marketing at YSU and is a local actress and playwright, designed the site and functions as “Head Buzzer.” “Already word of mouth in the theater community has made this site a success. It’s quickly becoming the area’s one-stop source for theater listings, news, audition notices, reviews, calls for talent and staff, theater contact info, free ticket giveaways, theater classifieds, blogs and articles. ... It’s already quite diverse,” she said. Besides the Web site, Games has created a bi-monthly e-newsletter to help theater patrons and the public keep up with area theater activities. The newsletter is free to anyone who wants to sign up, which they can do by visiting http://www.mvtheaterbuzz.com. Dempsey says the roundtable itself will remain a very loose affiliation. “We’re not interested in creating an arts council or another YACTA here. But the dialogue will be ongoing.” Nevertheless, member theaters have

already started floating ideas for future joint projects. “There’s been talk about producing a documentary about local theater history, doing a local theater ‘hop,’ joint fund raising and advertising, and a variety of other projects,” said Brooke Slanina, chairwoman of the Oakland Center for the Arts. “The roundtable, ‘the Buzz’ – they’re a labor of love,” said Games. “Michael and I hope that more area theaters will become involved with our efforts when they see how much they have to gain from it.” Games said their initial goal is to have 3,000 subscribers by August. “All indications are that we will do that easily,” she said with a smile. “Already theaterophiles from Akron, Cleveland and Pittsburgh are taking notice.” “Yep,” added Dempsey. “They say, ‘I had no idea there was so much interesting theater in the Valley!’” He and Games exchanged a look. “If we have anything to say about it, no one will ever think that again!” Those interested in more information about the Mahoning Valley Theater Buzz and local area theaters can visit http://www. mvtheaterbuzz.com, find the organization on Facebook at facebook.com/mvtheaterbuzz, e-mail Games at buzz@mvtheaterbuzz. com or Dempsey at michael@mvtheaterbuzz.com.

St. Joseph Parish was founded in 1864 and the school opened in 1962. The staff includes Principal Beth Frank, seven teachers and several part-time aides. Garvey encouraged parishioners to seek other area Catholic schools for their children and promises that the parish will make every effort to support them. To that end, there will be a Parent Information Night on Thursday, April 15. Garvey thanked the parents, professional staff members, and parishioners for their support of the school since it opened in 1962. Siffrin, vicar general of the Diocese of Youngstown, recognized the efforts of the parish community. “It is evident that the St. Joseph Parish community has made extraordinary efforts to support and maintain the school despite declining enrollment,” he said. Siffrin expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the many priests, religious, lay men and women who staffed the school over the years, and the families who entrusted their children to St. Joseph School. Dr. Michael Skube, superintendent of Catholic Schools, added that the Diocese of Youngstown continues to be committed to providing Catholic education to those who desire it and will make every effort to provide a smooth transition for the students from St. Joseph to other Catholic schools. For more information, contact Skube at 330-744-8451.

Recent New Orleans trip finds progress, lots of work still remaining BY WILLIAM S. PEYKO SPECIAL TO THE METRO MONTHLY

◆ Editor’s note: This first-hand account continues the saga of a small group of Mahoning Valley volunteers who have regularly traveled to New Orleans to aid in the rebuilding effort.

W

e left St. Columba bound for New Orleans at 7:15 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23. The “we” consisted of five people: John Pitzulo, our leader; his wife, Veronica; Joe Fraser, our driver; Joe Baker; and me, Bill Peyko. Joe and I functioned as the two go-fers in the group. About two hours into our journey, we stopped at a McDonald’s for a take-out breakfast. We continued on our way until we stopped at a rest stop near Columbus. When we got on the road again, Veronica came up with a game for Joe Baker and me to play. At each turn, one of us would name a candy bar. I didn’t last long. The next items we had to name were cereals, I lasted about two turns. I came up with naming cars – makes and models – and this contest lasted for a couple of hours; all the passengers joined in this game. I heard names of cars that were out of existence as well as some that I had never heard of. We took a rest stop and had dinner at a Cracker Barrel in Kentucky, and finally arrived in Nashville at 5 p.m. Our group checked in at the La Quinta Motel and got some much-needed rest. We left the motel at 7 a.m. on Sunday and it was drizzling. The rain increased as we drove south. Joe Frazier wanted to know if anyone objected to eating at Subway. I was happy to do so, as my daughter purchase a Subway Cash Card for me. When we stopped in Meridian, Miss., they had a big sign stating they did not honor Subway Cash Cards. I know many businesses don’t accept Travelers Checks due to counterfeits, but Subway Cards?! As we approached New Orleans, we crossed the new Ponchartrain Bridge, which has taken about four years to build. We arrived at our destination at 3:45 p.m. on Sunday. The Bigelows – friends we made from an earlier trip – invited us to their home for dinner. We stopped and then went to St. Dominic’s for 5:30 p.m. Mass. The church’s bell tower was exactly like St. Columba’s. There were only a handful of people at Mass. The priest remarked that most of the people were away watching the Saints play for the Super Bowl. After Mass, we went back to Bob’s and watched the game on T.V. It was a close game to the very end. We ate dinner and left after the game was over. As we drove back to St. Jude’s, our home away from home, we encountered hordes of people on the street yelling and having a good time. “Who dat” was repeated over and over again; the people were noisy, but wellbehaved.

We went to bed and tried to sleep, but the crowd continued to honk horns and yell “who dat?” At 3 a.m., we heard a train whistle but it was a car alarm that sounded like a train whistle – and so that’s how our first day in New Orleans ended. Monday, Jan. 25 – We went to Willow Street to redo a kitchen, arriving at 8 a.m. We started to remove the cupboards and saved them in case they were to be reused. A stove and a very large fridge were removed by the owner’s son. Some of the walls were removed, along with the flooring and linoleum. John, Veronica and I worked on removing objects, while the two Joes were getting lumber and plywood. They came back at about 1 p.m. and we used some of the lumber to make the floor more sturdy. We installed floor joists as well. We removed a heavy outer door and installed about three-quarters of the floor joists. We headed for home and a luncheon date with Sister Beth who is in charge of St. Jude’s. That night, we ate at a very posh restaurant called Houston. Tuesday, Jan. 26 – We went to Willow Street at about 7:30 a.m. and did a lot of nail-pulling. John Pitzulo and I replaced rafters. The group put down a new floor and set up the pipes for the sink. We removed and replaced a lot of termite-infested wood. Miss Lettie, the homeowner, made us Po’ Boy sandwiches – which was something like a sub but much better and with more variety. She fed us all week. We hauled drywall and the five of us installed it on the ceiling. By day’s end, two-thirds of the ceiling was covered. We would return tomorrow to complete the ceiling and the walls. Our friend Miss Lydia invited us to dinner that night. We had met and worked on her home several years ago and have remained friends. She made an appetizing meal: really tasty greens, potato salad and roast pork, with a cinnamon cake for dessert. We talked for three or four hours. Miss Lydia is interesting, can converse with anybody, and has a good sense of humor and an infectious laugh. She remarked about her visits to Ohio and especially her trip to Mill Creek Park. Wednesday, Jan. 27 – We ate breakfast at St. Jude’s, which consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage and French toast. The cook’s name was Biff (i.e.: me). We went to Willow Street and met Sister Regina who was involved on this project. She has been here daily and marveled at our progress. I accompanied Joe Frazier to get supplies at Lowe’s.

When we got back to Willow, I helped put up lath, and nailed the ceiling lath; that’s hard on the neck. Joe Baker installed wiring. John and Veronica put joint compound wherever it was needed. We planned to install the outer door, but I noticed that it was damaged. The two Joes and I went to exchange and replace the door. Sister Regina sprang for the Po’ Boys. Earlier in the morning, I told Joe Frazier what a great driver he was. He drove that van like a kiddie car. Anyway, this afternoon, when he was taking us back to St. Jude’s, he made a tight turn (one of 50) and his wheel got caught in a storm sewer. The tire blew, making it a perfect end to the day. Wait! There’s more: The meal we were expecting at St. Jude’s was not available, so we went to a bar/ restaurant named Déja Vu, where hamburgers were the main course. Later, Rev. Tony from Our Lady of Guadalupe took us to an Italian Ice Cream Parlor named Rocardo’s. The ice cream was much like Handel’s, but the parlor had an old-fashioned, homey atmosphere. Rev. Tony told some amusing stories. In one story, people had dogs dressed in various costumes and he was asked to bless 400 dogs that wished to be elsewhere. Thursday, Jan. 28 – We left at 7 a.m. bound for Willow Street. We prepared the floor for the linoleum and the cabinets. We patched all the nail holes so joint compound could be applied. John did this as well, and hung the door. Joe Baker and I helped him. The outer door was installed, too. We swept the floor continuously to make sure the linoleum would not be screwed up. Veronica and Joe Baker scraped the plywood floor several times. John and I brought in the linoleum in a single sheet. He cut off one portion so it would fit properly. He and Veronica put tape on the floor and the linoleum was laid half the floor at a time. It was covered with paper sheets and taped. This was in preparation for spraying compound and to paint the room without messing up the floor. The door and window were covered, too. John decided that the room was dry enough to spray and sand the ceiling and walls where the joint compound was used. Meanwhile, I removed the stainless steel sink from the counter. It will be used on the new counter. We got all the equipment together to spray the room. John had difficulty getting the sprayer operational. Finally, he got it up and running. He started to spray a mixture of texture and I kept feeding the mister. I was covered with texture on my hands and clothes.

Joe Frazier was shining a flashlight so John could see where he was spraying, or if he missed anything. When the spraying was completed, Joe Frazier and I cleaned all the equipment – which seemed to take longer than the actual spraying. For the evening, we went to the nuns’ home. They are the ones who are providing the funds for the home we are working on. The nuns included Sister Regina, Sister Ginger and Sister Mary Ann. They prepared a New Orleans dinner – jambalaya and rice and key lime pie. All of it was good! I am sure Sister Regina was the leader on this. After dinner, we sat around and talked about our experiences in New Orleans. John was presented with a photo album of all our work on the house. He talked a little bit more as we admired the photos and then we headed home. Sister Regina had remarked to Sister Mary Ann that we are always busy on the job – and we never sit down. So when Sister Mary Ann visited us on the job, what are we doing? We were sitting down! Friday, Jan. 29 – Up at 5:30 a.m. No food or coffee today, so we went to McDonald’s for breakfast on Nancy Tompkins, a Valley volunteer who couldn’t make the trip. When we arrived at the work site, we immediately began applying primer to the ceiling and walls. Veronica and I did the painting, and I painted quite a bit of the ceiling and walls. John was putting in the cabinets with Joe Baker’s assistance. Joe Frazier went to get supplies. After the primer had dried, Veronica painted the entire room a tan color which covered nicely. In the meantime, I painted the trim outside. But the sun would be out and then it would rain. I had to repaint at least four times. Finally, I put the trim in the trailer and hoped John wouldn’t be unhappy with it. He wasn’t. I went with Joe Frazier to get a counter top. We were gone a long time. John had most of the cabinets done, and Veronica had put the shelves in. Lettie’s son and a friend moved a big fridge to the kitchen. They damaged the new linoleum. It would have been much worse had John not stopped them. Rain caused some problems, but we continued working. We left early, because we were to eat at Bigelow house and we did. Jenny and Bob Bigelow make a good kitchen team. We had Shrimp Monaco, which was excellent and spicy, a salad and pecan pie. The pie was to die for and came with ice cream. The Bigelows also gave us some pie and jambalaya to take home. We left early because we are going to finish on Saturday. John’s talking about working on Monday – no way! Saturday, Jan. 30 – Hit the deck at 5:30 a.m. Stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast, then on the job at 7:30 a.m. It is really cold, and the wind made it colder. John put up the trim and I punched in the nails. I puttied the nail holes afterward for a while. Joe Frazier worked on the sink for a couple of hours. The sink was completed at about 1 p.m. We did some odds and ends, and loaded up the tools and headed over to Lisa’s (another person whose house we worked on). We visited with her daughters, Brittany and Kelly, checked out their rooms and John did some minor repairs. We ate gumbo. It was peppery hot and had shrimp, ham hocks and chicken in it. We went back for seconds and thirds! Lisa began to talk and said if another hurricane were to happen, she would walk away from it all. She scoffed at people leaving with possessions. She said she came into this world with nothing, and that’s how she’ll leave this world. What good are appliances, if there isn’t any electricity to use them? She said how she went through Katrina.

MAHONING VALLEY

METRO MONTHLY | APRIL 2010 NEW ORLEANS, FROM PAGE 8 She would not abandon her children; they would stay together. During the hurricane, she said she was wearing a Navy sweater. The rescuers put them in the front of the line – thinking she was a Navy wife or widow. She never told them otherwise. I didn’t hear the rest of the story because I fell asleep. We left shortly after and went to St. Jude’s only to learn that there was going to be a youth dance from 6 to 11 p.m. We went to the French Quarter, but the place was so packed that we couldn’t find any parking. So we went back to St. Jude’s and packed for our return home. Sunday, Jan. 31 – I got up at 5:30 a.m. and went to the men’s restroom. It was trashed by the party-goers. When the group got up, we had another McDonald’s breakfast and came back to Our Lady of Guadalupe and waited for the arrival of Archbishop Gregory Aymond. He arrived at 9:30 a.m. The church service was a really swinging af-

fair with the choir and congregation singing and clapping their hands with each hymn. The archbishop was very likable and referred to the Super Bowl during the service. He said to pray for the saints in heaven, and for the Saints on earth (to win the Super Bowl). During the service, Rev. Tony said he wanted to thank the Youngstown group for the work we have been doing. He asked us to stand, which we did. We received a long ovation and I was embarrassed because I felt I was blushing.

It was mind-boggling. bishop stayed with the parishioners and when we left for Nashville, he was still with them. While in Nashville, we stayed at the La Quinta, because the city was shut down due to a snow and ice storm. In the morning, we left for Ohio. We arrived in Youngstown at 6:30 p.m. on Monday night and went our separate ways.

Prior to that, some of us reflected on the trip. The New Orleans Saints have galvanized the city. Various people said it shows the city is coming back. We commented on how much improvement has taken place since Katrina struck and yet there are many vacant homes and buildings. It’s depressing to go down a street to see a few livable homes and several boarded up. It discourages people to maintain their homes when the blight is next door to them. In addition, the homeless and indigent seem much more depressed than here in the Mahoning Valley, which has suffered economic instability since the steel mills closed.

◆ Mental illness – A

less than six hours per night compared with normal sleepers who slept six or more hours nightly. ◆ Heart disease – A number of studies have linked short-term sleep deprivation with several well-known risk factors for heart disease, including higher cholesterol levels, higher triglyceride levels, and higher blood pressure. One such report, published in a 2009 issue of Sleep, included more than 98,000 Japanese men and women ages 40 to 79 who were followed for just over 14 years. Compared with women who snoozed for seven hours, women who got no more than four hours of shut-eye were twice as likely to die from heart disease, the researchers found. One common cause of poor sleep, sleep apnea – a life-threatening condition in which breathing stops or becomes shallower hundreds of times each night – also raises heart disease risk. In the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort study, people with severe sleep apnea were three times more likely to die of heart disease during 18 years of follow-up than those without apnea. When researchers excluded those who used a breathing machine (a common apnea treatment), the risk jumped to more than five times higher. Apnea spells can trigger

study of about 1,000 adults ages 21 to 30 found that, compared with normal sleepers, those who reported a history of insomnia during an interview were four times as likely to develop major depression by the time of a second interview three years later. And two studies in young people – one involving 300 pairs of young twins, and another including about 1,000 teenagers – found that sleep problems developed before a diagnosis of major depression and (to a lesser extent) anxiety. Sleep problems in the teenagers preceded depression 69 percent of the time and anxiety disorders 27 percent of the time. ◆ Mortality – In the Japanese heart disease study described above, short sleepers of both genders had a 1.3-fold increase in mortality compared with those who got sufficient sleep. Severe sleep apnea raises the risk of dying early by 46 percent, according to a 2009 study of 6,400 men and women whom researchers followed for an average of eight years. Although only about 8 percent of the men in the study had severe apnea, those who did and who were between 40 and 70 years of age were twice as likely to die from any cause as healthy men in the same age group. Clearly, getting enough sleep is just as important as other vital elements of good health, such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and practicing good dental hygiene. In short, sleep is not a luxury but a basic component of a healthy lifestyle.

Ankle and Foot Center seeks diabetics for wound-healing study

A

nkle and Foot Care Centers is inviting local diabetic patients to participate in a study of a palm-sized device that disperses oxygen to heal wounds. The local podiatrists and Ogenix Corp., makers of the oxygen device, plan to recruit up to 30 individuals to wear the devices under their clothing to test the new treatment. “We make it a point to get involved in research related to diabetic wounds,” said Dr. Lawrence A. DiDomenico, managing partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers. “This device is already approved by the Food & Drug Administration, but there is

still much to be learned about how effective it is and how we can make it more effective.” The device, called Epiflo, consists of a small, silent oxygen concentrator and a long, sterile tube. It draws oxygen from the air, concentrates it to near 100 percent and then pumps it slowly over a wound that is covered tightly by a dressing. Patients can wear the Epiflo device beneath their clothing, near the wound, for 24 hours a day without affecting their own activities or the device. “The oxygen encourages a moist environment and jump-starts the body’s natural healing processes,” DiDomenico said.

Tips for achieving your ideal weight

How sleep loss affects your health – from weight gain to heart-attack risk any people don’t realize that lack of sufficient sleep can trigger mild to potentially life-threatening consequences, from weight gain to a heart attack. Viral infections – Anecdotal evidence supports the notion that when you’re tired and rundown, you’re more likely to get sick. A 2009 study in Archives of Internal Medicine offers some proof. Researchers tracked the sleep habits of 153 men and women for two weeks, then quarantined them for five days and exposed them to cold viruses. People who slept an average of less than seven hours per night were three times as likely to get sick as those who averaged at least eight hours. ◆ Weight gain – Not getting enough sleep makes you more likely to gain weight, according to a 2008 review article in the journal Obesity that analyzed findings from 36 different studies of sleep duration and body weight. The link appears to be especially strong among children. Lack of sufficient sleep tends to disrupt hormones that control hunger and appetite, and the resulting daytime fatigue often discourages you from exercising. Excess weight, in turn, increases the risk of a number of health problems—including some of those listed in the following paragraphs. ◆ Diabetes – A 2009 report in Diabetes Care found a sharp increase in the risk of type 2 diabetes in people with persistent insomnia. People who had insomnia for a year or longer and who slept less than five hours per night had a threefold higher risk of type 2 diabetes compared with those who had no sleep complaints and who slept six or more hours nightly. As with overweight and obesity (which are also closely linked to type 2 diabetes), the underlying cause is thought to involve a disruption of the body’s normal hormonal regulation resulting from insufficient sleep. ◆ High blood pressure – Researchers involved in the diabetes study also evaluated risk of high blood pressure among the same group of people, which included more than 1,700 randomly chosen men and women from rural Pennsylvania. As described in a 2009 article in the journal Sleep, the researchers found the risk of high blood pressure was three-and-a-half times greater among insomniacs who routinely slept

eight loss is hard work, yet anyone can overcome their weight challenges with the proper mental attitude. It requires the right combination of motivation, self-restraint, and support, along with a good healthy eating plan and exercise. Weight loss is 80 percent mental. If you can overcome the mental blocks that are keeping you from your ideal weight, then you will be able to persevere through the physical challenges of diet and exercise to achieve your goal. This article is meant to demystify weight loss and identifying the main factors involved with healthy long-term weight loss and how to finally achieve your ideal weight. What is your ideal weight? I should first point out that when I say ideal weight, I’m referring to the optimal weight range for your health, which is not necessarily the number you have in your head as ideal. Unfortunately, there are no easily accessible tools to calculate your optimal weight range, but instead there are calculations to determine whether you are at a healthy weight. There are three main methods for identifying what is a healthy weight for an individual. They are BMI (body-mass index), WHR (waistto-hip ratio), and body-fat percentage. BMI is a ratio of weight to height to determine if an individual falls within the normal weight range for their height. This calculation does not take into account your body frame or other factors needed to determine your ideal weight. The second method for determining if you are at a healthy weight is the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR). The WHR is important, because medical research has shown that excess fat in the abdomen is associated with a higher risk for high-blood pressure, diabetes, early onset of heart disease, and certain types of cancers. Body-fat percentage is the third method for determining a healthy weight and it is what I rely on in my practice. The main methods of estimating your body-fat percentage are through the use of a skinfold caliper or through bioelectrical impedance analysis, which is the method used in scales that measure body fat. I use a patient’s weight, body-fat percentage, height, and age to come up with a very accurate healthy weight range. What is a healthy diet? In general, healthy eating consists of eating a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, lean meats, dairy, and unrefined grains. It is important to avoid all of the white foods, like sugar, white flour products, and potatoes. I find it very helpful to follow a diet based on their blood type, which helps to eliminate most food allergies/sensitivities that would cause problems with your metabolism. The second part of a healthy diet for losing weight is cutting calories. If you are having trouble losing weight, often it is because you don’t realize how many calories you are actually eating. There are many free online diet diary Web sites that will help you track exactly how many calories you are eating. If you are counting calories, it is important to understand your basal metabolic rate (BMR). This is the amount of calories that your body needs to consume on a daily basis to keep you at the same weight. In orSEE WEIGHT LOSS, PAGE 11

WWW.METROMONTHLY.NET 11

WEIGHT LOSS, FROM PAGE 10 der to lose weight, you must reduce your calories below your BMR. It takes eliminating or burning 3,500 calories to account for one pound of weight lost. This means that you need to reduce your calories by 500 per day to lose one pound per week. I find that calorie tracking Web sites are helpful for many reasons, including helping you to find out where you are consuming extra calories that limit weight loss. Online diet diaries help to keep you accountable to the computer, which doesn’t lie, judge you, or let you off easy when you don’t do what you are supposed to do. The last reason I find calorie tracking Web sites helpful is that you can use them to find a better balance of meals and snacks throughout the day to help you feel the most full and satisfied while limiting your calories. What about exercise? Exercise should be thought of as another way to reduce your net daily calories. In order to achieve your daily calorie goal, you should use a combination of reducing calories and exercise. If you would like to lose 1 pound per week, you could choose to reduce your calorie intake by 250 calories per day, along with increasing your exercise by 250 calories per day. Patients always ask me what the best exercise is to help them lose weight and my answer is always the same. You need to focus on the types of exercise that you enjoy the most. This is the best way for most people to stay consistent with an exercise routine. How do I get motivated? As I said in the beginning of this article, 80 percent of weight loss is mental and motivation is key. The problem is finding the proper motivation that can keep you on track. This motivation can be different for everyone. Some people find motivation to lose weight from wanting to overcome health problems associated with their weight, like diabetes, heart disease or infertility and some find motivation from seeing family members suffering from these health problems. Others find motivation because their clothes do not fit or they want to look better at the beach or for a significant other. The point is, you need to do some deep soul searching and figure out what is the best motivation for you to lose weight. Another part of motivation is having people to support you in your weight-loss goals. Having a friend or family member who is also working on weight loss can be a wonderful form of support as long as each can hold one other accountable. Another form of support and accountability is to work with a doctor where you have to regularly come into the office and get weighed. Some people do well with a weight loss support organization, like TOPS (Take Off Weight Sensibly) or participating in weight-loss challenges. Putting the Pieces Together. In order to be successful in attaining and keeping your ideal weight, it is important to create a plan and stick to it. This requires setting attainable goals in regular intervals, like losing 1 pound per week or 5 pounds per month until you achieve your ideal weight. The rest of your weight loss plan consists of putting together the different components of weight loss that I explained above, including determining your ideal weight, finding your BMR, using an online diet diary as part of a healthy diet, exercise, and finding the proper motivation, support and self restraint needed to help you achieve your goals.

arch came roaring in with plenty of fine wine events to tempt local wine aficionados. My first event took me to Antone’s Banquet Center in Boardman for the Canfield Junior Women’s League fundraiser wine and beer taste to benefit Kids Grieve Too, a nonprofit organization to aid grieving children and families. Ohio Wine Imports, Tri-County Distributors and our local Mastropietro Winery

provided a fine array of wines. My first wine sampling was the Mastropietro Chambourcin red. Fullbodied and slightly off dry, this wine should please a wide range of wine drinkers. I tried it with several different cheese selections and found it worked nicely with all of them. Owner and winemaker Dan Mastropietro informed me that he has bottled his first icewine (Vidal Blanc) and his first port-style wine (from Frontenac grapes) this year. I look forward to visiting his winery and sampling these new additions. A white wine that struck me at the tasting was the Bolla Pinot Grigio IGT from Veneto, Italy. Crisp and tangy citrus fruit flavors made this light-bodied white a perfect partner for the assorted fruits and cheeses available. A beer that really stood out was the Rust Belt Red (Irish red ale). Rust Belt is brewed in Youngstown, and is making a strong impact across the Mahoning Valley. It was simply delicious with the bruschetta and antipasto. This was the first time I attended this fundraiser, and I would like to thank the organizers Rhonda Rance, Danielle Strock, and Cari Gulas-Needs for a wonderful time. The next wine event I attended was the Fifth Season wine tasting held for the first time at their new catering facility on Route 46. Multiple selections of wine were available, accompanied by a variety of food entrees too numerous to list, from chicken pot pie and roasted whole duck to soft shell crab, Pacific Coast halibut and Kobe Waygu prime rib. This was truly a feast for food and wine lovers alike. My first sample was the 2008 Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio ($9.99) from Australia. Light bodied with crisp citrus fruit flavors, it was just the answer for the soft shell crab. The 2006 Zorzettig Ribolla Gialla from the Fruili region of northern Italy was my next pick. A touch of oak enhances the citrus fruit flavors of this unique Italian white wine. I found it irresistible with Chef Steve James’ frog legs

wine guy By John Webster and mixed seafood ceviche. Roasted whole duck was the next food pairing I tried, and I found the 2008 New Zealand The Crossing Pinot Noir to be a near-perfect match. The supple yet crisp berry fruit flavors melded perfectly with the rich-tasting duck. The bold-tasting Chateau Maris 2006 La Touge Syrah from the south of France was my next sampling. This undervalued Syrah was outstanding with both the humble shepherd’s pie and the exotic Kobe Waygu prime rib. Fullbodied with loads of plummy red fruit flavors, this wine was more than a match for the Kobe beef. My final pick satisfied my sweet tooth and was dessert in itself. The Fifth Season’s owners should be complimented for offering the Quinta do Portal 10-year Tawny Port from Portugal. This sweet nutty-flavored dessert wine was simply outstanding, and I found it to be a perfect ending to a wonderful tasting. On March 16, Springfield Grille held a beer dinner featuring various brews from around the world. The first course paired Pennsylvania’s Victory Hop Devil IPA (India pale ale) to crunchy shrimp tossed with carrots and beans. Pale amber in color with a pronounced hoppy nose, this brew nicely complemented the pineapple-

glazed shrimp. Oregon’s famous Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale was paired to thick-cut grouper sliders (miniature sandwiches) smothered in Russian dressing for course no. 2. The grouper was done to perfection and the smooth, clean tasting Dead Guy ale enhanced the mild flavor of the fish. Course no 3. was traditional Irish banger sausage drizzled in a strawberry Creole mustard. San Diego’s Stone Pale Ale with its crisp clean finish worked very nicely with this rich-tasting entrée. Brooklyn Lager from Utica, New York was poured with “black and tan” breaded pork medallions drizzled in Bass (ale) and Guinness (stout) reductions for course no. 4. This amber-colored lager was a real treat with the beer-based reduction sauces served with this entrée. The final dessert course of Irish chocolate porter (beer) cake topped with homemade Guinness whipped cream was paired to Heavy Seas Pegleg Imperial Stout. Dark brown and full-bodied, this Maryland brew was a grand match for this rich-tasting dessert offering. Moving along to the monthly store tastings, I first visited Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road in Warren for their second Saturday wine taste. If you’re looking for a great organic wine for the summer, try the 2008 Green Truck Sauvignon Blanc ($12.99) from Lake County. Crisp citrus fruit flavors followed by a taut finish make this a great choice for grilled seafood or chicken. SEE THE WINE GUY, PAGE 18

METRO MONTHLY ELECTRONIC IMAGE | JOHN WEBSTER

The Fifth Season’s Chef Steve James in the kitchen at their recent wine tasting. THE WINE GUY, FROM PAGE 13

This winery also makes a fine organic Zinfandel from Mendocino County ($12.99). Ripe berry fruit flavors and a toasty plumtinged finish make this another great pick for summer fare. Vintage Estate Wine and Beer in Boardman had two unique wines you might want to try. The Trapper Creek Dandelion Wine ($12.99) from Hamilton, Montana is a fun alternative for everyday Chardonnays. It features floral-tinged upfront fruit flavors and a grassy strawtinged finish that was quite captivating. The MadFish 2003 Shiraz ($11.99) from western Australia offers dark cherry and spice flavors followed by a peppery finish that should complement any barbecue entrée hot off the coals. Vintage Estate has undergone a transformation as of late. Owner Phill Reda has completely redesigned the interior of the shop. I found that the additional wine shelving and extra elbow room made for a more comfortable wine experience, and I’ll report on the new ambience in next month’s column. Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland was my next stop, and two red wines really stood out at this tasting. The Uvaggio 2005 Barbera ($18.99) from Lodi, Calif. is a fruit-forward bomb of a wine. This tasty red compares very nicely to Barberas from Italy, at a price point that is hard to beat. The 2008 Immortal Old Vine Zin ($11.99) from Peirano Vineyards is one of the nicest Zins I’ve sampled lately. Lush berry and plum flavors followed by a brambly finish make this textbook Zin a joy to drink. Load up on this attractively-priced red for upcoming summer cookouts. My final tasting was at Wine Styles of Howland. Tony Rego of Specialty Wine Company was on hand to pour samples from a fine array of Italian wines. His 2006 Tenuta Carretta Roero Cayega Arneis DOCG ($19.99) was exceptional. The Ar-

neis grape is indigenous to the Piedmont region of Italy, and we don’t see many wines made from it in the States. Straw-colored with persistent fruit flavors, it has a flowertinged finish that just goes on and on. Try this tasty white with linguine tossed in extra-virgin olive oil and cracked pepper.

My next pick was the 2007 Luigi Tacchino Du Riva Dolcetto DOC ($22.99), also from Piedmont. This light-bodied red was a joy to sample with gobs of silky berry fruit flavors and an almond-tinged finish that was outstanding. This Italian red is an excellent introductory wine for someone wanting to try a fine Piedmontese wine. Wine Styles is starting to feature selected cheeses from Cleveland’s West Side Market, and I think this is a fine idea, showing commitment to quality that is nice to experience. Early last month, I was invited to TriCounty Distributors for a tasting of Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose ($13.99). Slightly off-dry with citrus and peach fruit flavors, this is a great choice for making traditional mimosas (sparkling wine and orange juice). A variety of mimosas were available to taste, and I found the cranberry mimosa (Sparkling Rose and cranberry juice) particularly enjoyable and just right for budget-minded summertime enjoyment. Starting next month, local wine expert Brian Fry and I will be starting the Mahoning Valley Wine and Food Lovers’ Club. We will be meeting at restaurants across the Valley to sample wine and food for an affordable evening out. The cost will be $15 per person, and we will present wines that are both unique and value-oriented. Toward the end of April, we’ll be holding our first gathering at Station Square. While the date was not available at press time, just ask me about it when you see me at any of the wine events listed below, or call Station Square (330759-8802) for the date. Upcoming tastings include Wine Styles, alternating Thursday and Friday tastings; Charlie’s Premier Wines, alternating Saturdays tastings, Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; Michael Charles Premier Wines, second Saturday. On April 20, Springfield Grille will hold its monthly wine dinner. Another upcoming event is the April 24 Big Tap-In Festival of craft beers, a Hands On Volunteer Network fundraiser in conjunction with Vintage Estate to be held at the Shepherd Event Center on South Avenue – call HOVN at 330-782-5877 for more details. I look forward to tasting wine with you at one of these events. If you have a wine event you would like listed in this column, please send your information to thewineguy@metromonthly.net.

1 Sleeve Saltine™ Crackers • 2 Sticks Butter • 1 Cup Sugar 1 Package of Milk Chocolate Chips • 1/2 Cup Slivered Almonds Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a glass baking dish (11x7.5) with non-stick spray and layer the saltines in an even layer. Sprinkle half of the almonds over the crackers. Set aside. Over medium heat, melt the sugar and butter together until the mixture is bubbly and foamy, making sure not to burn. Pay close attention that the sugar is completely dissolved, stirring frequently. Pour the sugar mixture evenly over the crackers and almonds, making sure all are covered. Place into the oven for 12 minutes.
