Sherrod Brown to discuss healthcare on Sept. 3 at YSU

U

.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown will talk about the healthcare crisis in the United States to kick off the 2009–10 Center for Working–Class Studies Lecture Series at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 3 in the Chestnut Room of Kilcawley Center on the Youngstown State University campus. Brown’s lecture is titled “The Healthcare Crisis and Working-Class Communities.” “This lecture, which is being held at the start of the Labor Day weekend, will focus on a very timely, much–debated topic that is vitally important to all Americans, particularly the working class,” said John Russo, co–director of the YSU Center for Working–Class Studies and coordinator of the Labor Studies program at YSU. The lecture is free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the M–24 lot on Fifth Avenue, next to McDonald’s. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Since joining the U.S. Senate in January 2007, Brown has held more than 140 community roundtables, visiting each of Ohio’s 88 counties at least once, to talk with local leaders, workers, business owners and healthcare professionals. Prior to winning election to the U.S. Senate, Brown served 14 years as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Ohio’s 13th district in Cleveland and eight years as Ohio Secretary of State.

Animal Welfare League launches drive for shelter

A

project designed to dramatically improve the quality of care for abused and abandoned animals, while providing new educational opportunities for local students, will soon be coming to the region. The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County has unveiled plans for an all new Animal Welfare Care and Education Center in Champion Township. The Covelli family and Cafaro Foundation have partnered with matching donations of $250,000 each to launch the project. Caryn Covelli expressed hope “that the initial gifts from Mrs. (Phyllis) Cafaro and I will encourage other organizations and individuals to contribute to the fund-raising effort.” “This is the type of community resource that is sorely needed,” added Phyllis Cafaro. “It will improve the care of helpless pets that have been abandoned or neglected by their owners. Even more importantly, it will provide new opportunities for young people striving for careers as veterinarians, zoologists or veterinary technicians.” Trumbull County is donating eight acres of land near the Kent State Trumbull Campus as the site for the new facility. The planned structure will be approxi-

mately 25,000 square feet and more than double the housing capacity of the shelter the Animal Welfare League operates on Brunstetter Road in Lordstown. “We believe this will be the first of its kind,” said Barbara Busko, Animal Welfare League president. “It will create a public/ private partnership between the county, Trumbull Career and Technical Center (TCTC) and the Animal Welfare League.” The arrangement will allow the existing county dog pound to close and the dog warden to work from the new facility. According to the League, the existing dog pound has long been regarded as too small to properly care for all stray animals within Trumbull County. The new Animal Welfare Care and Education Center will include state-of-the art features for providing veterinary care. It will be a “green” building, incorporating technologies that will enable it to be LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Moreover, it will be able to accommodate classes of students in the

Animal Management Technology Program at TCTC, allowing them to have hands-on training at the new shelter. The overall cost of construction is estimated at $6.6 million. The Animal Welfare League is offering donors the chance to purchase “naming rights” for all or part of the new facility. “With sufficient private donations, we stand a good chance of accessing public grant money to help fund the project,” Covelli said. She is co-chair of the project along with Cindy D’Amico and veterinarian Dr. Rufus Sparks. The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that has been serving the local community for nearly 40 years. Tax deductible contributions may be made by contacting the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County at 330-394-3512. The League’s fund-raising consultant, The Bentz Group, will process donations sent to its office: 303 Washington St., N.W., Warren, Ohio 44483. The phone number is 330-306-5743.

olunteers from Trumbull County are needed to help with the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program. This free program provides rides to cancer patients who lack transportation to and from their medical treatment. “For years we have depended on volunteers to assist us with all of our fund-raising events and with our programs,” said Barb Barsch, the volunteer coordinator of the program. “But we need dependable drivers to help us according to their own schedule. There are a number of reasons why patients need this service. Unfortunately, if we don’t have volunteer drivers the service remains at a standstill.” Patients use the Road to Recovery program because they are unable to drive to treatment or because they do not have friends or family to transport them. Volunteer drivers go to the patient’s home and take them to their treatment site. Once the treatment is over, the volunteer driver takes the patient back home. “There are some instances when patients need treatment for several weeks, or on certain days for a specific number of weeks,” Barsch added. “Even patients who have friends and family often turn to us because there are times when they are unable to get a ride.” There is no cost to the patient for this service. Volunteer drivers offer their vehicle and donate their time to drive them. SEE VAALLEY UPDATE, PAGE 8

VALLEY UPDATE, FROM PAGE 7

The blows of hammers and the humming of mills once echoed throughout the Mahoning Valley. Steel reigned supreme, and immigrants from every corner of Europe came to forge new lives and an enduring community. When the sounds of industry were silenced, Youngstown remained a strong and vibrant community. Editor Mark C. Peyko and the writers of the Metro Monthly create a portrait of their city through a beautifully rendered collection of vignettes. With stories of inventors, movie moguls, local cuisine and sports heroes, Peyko and company not only chronicle the history of Youngstown, but also capture the essence of their home.

Road to Recovery is people helping people to overcome cancer. The volunteers provide an important service. Even the best medical treatment is useless if patients can’t get to and from treatment. “The service is available to any person receiving cancer treatment who lives in Trumbull County. We get several calls each week, but because we need additional volunteer drivers to help out we are not able to help with all requests,” said Barsch. “Even if someone has only a couple hours a week to volunteer, it will help.” The Cancer Society will provide a free and simple training program to those who are interested in assisting cancer patients with rides. Volunteer drivers must have a working vehicle that can accommodate the patient, a current driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. A personal background check will be conducted. Those interested in helping may call Deborah Moore at the American Cancer Society toll free at 1-888-227-6446, ext. 2104. LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Family finds value in Girard Free Library DEAR EDITOR: Summertime this year has been the best of the best, thus far. My two children and I walk from Paul’s Trailer Park to the Girard Free Library for the summer activities. My son Joseph is six years old and walks right beside me. Imagine a 6-year old keeping up with you. Well, my son loves every moment of it. Every day my son asks “Mom, come on, let’s go to the library.” Why, you might ask? Several reasons. First of all, there are couple of his favorite restaurants, like Jib-Jab, the hot dog place, and the Dairy Queen along the way. Of course, the wonderful crisp taste of cool ice cream on a hot day in summertime is accelerating his walk. Then comes my two-year-old daughter Hadassah, who is so anxious and zealous for a summertime stroller walk to the library. While strolling, I observe her watching and learning as my son instructs her. It is fun to watch and see the fun that is in a child. The faith that they have will strengthen a parent, as it does me. Summertime is a happy time for all the children, and especially for us parents. My children and I love to go the Girard Free Library. I believe once you love a good place like Girard Free Library, it grows on you. My children love the wonderful staff at Girard Free Library, especially Maria, who works in the children’s section. Our walk to Girard Free Library will always be the best summer walk ever. – Esther Bondi, Girard, Ohio

onstruction projects in and around Youngstown State University are expanding the physical reach of the campus and altering the skyline of the downtown and near North Side. In late summer, students returning to classes saw scaffolding, steel framing and earth-moving equipment on sites north and south of the campus core. Although YSU’s new $34.3 million Williamson College of Business Administration building on West Rayen Avenue is the centerpiece of the university’s Centennial Master Plan, multi-million dollar restorations at St. Columba Cathedral and the YWCA bookend the project and are the most extensive in each facility’s history. “One of the underlying land-development concepts is to reach out and connect the campus to the rest of the community,” said Hunter Morrison, director of campus planning and community partnerships at YSU. “That was particularly true in the case of the business school – moving into what was known as the transition zone between downtown and the campus in collaboration with the Diocese of Youngstown and the YWCA.” The new Williamson College of Business Administration replaces an aging structure on Lincoln Avenue. The 106,000-square-foot facility doubles the size of the current building and adds features not found in the 1960s-era structure. New classroom space will facilitate interactive learning and the building will house a student-run business incubator and labs for computers, financial services, sales and communications. Williamson is expected to open in June 2010 and is the largest single capital expenditure in Youngstown State University’s history. Last month the YWCA of Youngstown kicked off the renovation/restoration of its historic 1911 building on Rayen Avenue. The $8.6 million project calls for adapting the YWCA to present-day needs, while maintaining the building’s historic ambience. A key component of the project calls for creating 30 one bedroom and efficiency apartments for residents. The renovation will transform current dormitory-style housing into modern, self-contained apartment units with private bathrooms and kitchen facilities. All would be handicap accessible. “It took a while to find all the resources to put together,” said Constance Shaffer, executive director of the YWCA. “One of the key players was Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, and they helped us navigate the system to secure low-income tax credits and helped put together the project with funding sources.” The YWCA project seeks to create job development and “economic empowerment” programming on the first floor.

Clockwise from top: steel framing for the new Williamson College of Business Administration, the Stuart Building north of campus on Elm Street, at the bell tower of St. Columba Cathedral on Wood Street in downtown Youngstown.

Plans call for a variety of economic development ventures, including a start-up space for women’s and minority-owned businesses and partnerships with local government and job-training organizations. Other improvements include new community meeting spaces, computer labs, a fitness area, and a cyber café in the first-floor lobby. The former pool building is scheduled for demolition and a new enclosed garden is planned in its place. The total cost of the YWCA project is $8,682,498. The YWCA plans to use a combination of grant monies, low-income housing tax credits and federal historic tax credits to complete the project, but is undertaking a capital campaign to raise the remaining $3,047,926. To contribute to the project, contact Shaffer or Leah Brooks, development di-

rector, at 330-746-6361. West of the future Williamson College of Business Administration, the Diocese of Youngstown is undertaking a $2 million restoration of St. Columba Cathedral. The work is part of the Diocese’s “Today’s Sacrifice, Tomorrow’s Church Capital Campaign.” The drive, which ended in January 2006, earmarked $22.5 million for a variety of uses, including school and ministry endowments, seminarian support, and restoration of the cathedral. LZ Construction is construction manager for the project. According to the Louis A. Zarlenga & Associates and LZ Construction Web site, the first phase of the project is set to be completed in November 2009. North of campus and across from the Cafaro House residence hall on Elm Street, U.S. Campus Suites LLC recently

demolished the former Electrochemicals Inc. complex, which in recent years had housed a coney island restaurant, car wash, coffee shop and thrift store. U.S. Campus Suites President Dominic Marchionda plans to build a 115 bed student apartment building in the block bounded by Elm, Bryson, Madison Avenue and the West Bound Service Road of the Madison Avenue Expressway. Last spring, the YSU Board of Trustees agreed to lease the parcel for 40 years to U.S. Campus Suites for $110,000. At the end of the lease, the university will gain control of the building. The proposed development, called the Flats at Wick, is the first phase of a planned four apartment building complex on the site. Rent is expected to be $685 per month for a one-room apartment and $510 per person for a four-bed apartment. Farther north on Elm Street, Common Wealth, Inc., a non-profit organization, purchased 901 Elm on July 17. According to the Mahoning County Auditor’s Web site, the organization purchased the 5,698-square-foot building from the U.S. Government at auction for an undisclosed price. The two-story brick building formerly housed the Penguin Pub and Amy’s Campus 2000. Constructed in 1929, the Stuart Building contains six one-bedroom apartments and first floor commercial space. Common Wealth is asking between $550 and $700 for a one-bedroom apartment and is marketing to students, hospital employees or anyone else wishing to live on the North Side. The apartments feature hardwood floors, new kitchens and baths and off-street parking. Two other projects, still in the preliminary stages, include a new CVS drug store on Fifth Avenue and an indoor athletic training facility on Elm Street north of the YSU Physical Plant. The proposed Watson and Tressel Training Site, was announced in 2007, following a $1 million donation by the Watson and Tressel families. Like Williamson, the $10 million project is part of YSU’s $43 million Centennial Capital Campaign. According to the YSU athletics department Web site (http://www.ysusports.com), the $7.5 million first phase of the complex is expected to be complete for the fall 2010 semester. The enclosed, climate-protected practice facility will be used for YSU football and athletic training as well as area high school teams and youth organizations. The facility will include athletic fields for football, baseball, softball, soccer and track. A video, hosted on YouTube, shows a short, computergenerated video on the proposed facility.

Study: Intervention can reduce depression after stroke

CDC answers questions on ‘novel H1N1 flu‘ virus

FROM THE NATONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL

A

What is novel H1N1 (swine flu)? Novel H1N1 (referred to as “swine flu” early on) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of novel H1N1 flu was under way. Why is novel H1N1 virus sometimes called “swine flu”? This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs (swine) in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and bird (avian) genes and human genes. Scientists call this a “quadruple reassortant” virus. Are there human infections with novel H1N1 virus in the U.S.? Yes. Human infections with the new H1N1 virus are ongoing in the United States. Most people who have become ill with this new virus have recovered without requiring medical treatment. The Centers for Disease Control routinely works with states to collect, compile and analyze information about influenza, and has done the same for the new H1N1 virus since the beginning of the outbreak. Is novel H1N1 virus contagious? CDC has determined that novel H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human. How does novel H1N1 virus spread? Spread of novel H1N1 virus is thought to occur in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people? The symptoms of novel H1N1 flu virus in people include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting. Severe illnesses and death has occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus. How severe is illness associated with novel H1N1 flu virus? Illness with the new H1N1 virus has ranged from mild to severe. While most people who have been sick have recovered without needing medical treatment, hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have occurred. In seasonal flu, certain people are at “high risk” of serious complications. This includes people 65 years and older, children younger than five years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions. About 70 percent of people who have been hospitalized with this novel H1N1 virus have had one or more medical conditions previously recognized as placing people at “high risk” of serious seasonal flu-related complications. This includes pregnancy, diabetes, heart disease, asthma and kidney disease. One thing that appears to be different from seasonal influenza is that adults older than 64 years do not yet appear to be at increased risk of novel H1N1-related complications thus far. CDC laboratory studies have shown that no children and very few adults younger than 60 years old have existing antibody to novel H1N1 flu virus; however, about one-third of adults older than 60 may have antibodies against this virus. It is unknown how much, if any, protection may be afforded against novel H1N1 flu by any existing antibody. How does novel H1N1 flu compare to seasonal flu in terms of its severity and infection rates? With seasonal flu, we know that seasons vary in terms of timing, duration and severity. Seasonal

nurse-led behavioral intervention can reduce the incidence of depression in stroke survivors, according to the results of a study published in the recent issue of the journal Stroke. The intervention, called Living Well with Stroke (LWWS), provided individualized counseling sessions aimed at increasing pleasant social interactions and physical activity as a way to elevate mood, and was designed to be used alone or in conjunction with antidepressant medications. This study was funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research, a component of the National Institutes of Health. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain becomes blocked or interrupted, leading to brain damage in the affected area. Stroke survivors can experience a range of aftereffects, including impaired mobility or paralysis, pain, speech and language problems, and altered cognition. As many as one-third of stroke survivors also develop post-stroke depression, which may include intense feelings of loss, anger, sadness, and/or hopelessness. Compared to stroke survivors without depression, those with post-stroke depression tend to have a poorer response to rehabilitation, a longer delay in returning to work, more social withdrawal, and increased use of health care services. They are also at higher risk for subsequent strokes, cardiac events, and death. While antidepressant medications have shown varying degrees of short-term efficacy for post-stroke depression patients, few studies have examined non-pharmacologic interventions or long-term outcomes. In a clinical trial involving over 100 stroke survivors who exhibited symptoms of post-stroke depression, Dr. Mitchell’s research team compared LWWS against usual post-stroke care. The study participants ranged in age from 25 to 88 years, and 59 percent were male. In addition, over 70 percent had experienced at least one episode of depression prior to their stroke, and 60 percent were taking an antidepressant medication at entry into the study. All participants received standard post-stroke information and continued to see their primary care provider for ongoing medical care. Those assigned to the LWWS program received nine counseling sessions over two months with a specially trained stroke rehabilitation nurse. In these sessions, the nurse taught the participants problem-solving skills and helped them develop realistic treatment goals. In addition, several sessions were devoted to improving mood by helping the partici-

Depression during the recovery period can interfere with their ability to fully engage in their treatment regimen or return to family and work,” noted Dr. Patricia A. Grady, the NINR director. Depression scores in the LWWS group were significantly lower after treatment and at a one year follow-up compared to the control group. In addition, more participants in the LWWS group achieved remission with scores no longer meeting the criteria for depression - compared to the control group both immediately after treatment (47 percent vs. 19 percent), and at a oneyear follow-up (48 percent vs. 27 percent).

At two years, depression scores continued to decrease and remission rates continued to increase for both groups, although the gap narrowed so that the differences were no longer statistically significant. For both the intervention and control groups, patients in remission at one year had significantly higher scores in perceived ability, recovery, and social participation than those who were not. “The success of LWWS shows the importance of including behavioral strategies in the care of stroke survivors. We believe our study is the first to report a clinically significant reduction in depression in these patients over a long term,” said Mitchell. “We also showed that achieving remission from depression by any means is an important treatment goal that could promote recovery and sociability.” “This study has the potential to add another tool for health care professionals to use in helping individuals cope following a stroke,” added Grady. “Also of note, the LWWS program included instruction to help family members and other informal caregivers identify resources and support services as a way to reduce their caregiving burden, an important aspect of comprehensive post-stroke care.” NINR supports basic and clinical research that develops the knowledge to build the scientific foundation for clinical practice, prevent disease and disability, manage and eliminate symptoms caused by illness, and enhance end-of-life and palliative care.

FLU, FROM PAGE 12 influenza can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Each year, in the United States, on average 36,000 people die from flu-related complications and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related causes. Of those hospitalized, 20,000 are children younger than 5 years old. Over 90 percent of deaths and about 60 percent of hospitalization occur in people older than 65. When the novel H1N1 outbreak was first detected in mid-April 2009, CDC began working with states to collect, compile and analyze information regarding the novel H1N1 flu outbreak, including the numbers of confirmed and probable cases and the ages of these people. The information analyzed by CDC supports the conclusion that novel H1N1 flu has caused greater disease burden in people younger than 25 years of age than older people. At this time, there are few cases and few deaths reported in people older than 64 years old, which is unusual when compared with seasonal flu. However, pregnancy and other previously recognized high risk medical conditions from seasonal influenza appear to be associated with increased risk of complications from this novel H1N1. These underlying conditions include asthma, diabetes, suppressed immune systems, heart disease, kidney disease, neurocognitive and neuromuscular disorders and pregnancy. How long can an infected person spread this virus to others? People infected with seasonal and novel H1N1 flu shed virus and may be able to infect others from 1 day before getting sick to 5 to 7 days after. This can be longer in some people, especially children and people with weakened immune systems and in people infected with the new H1N1 virus.

Prevention & Treatment What can I do to protect myself from getting sick? There is no vaccine available right now to protect against novel H1N1 virus. However, a novel H1N1 vaccine is currently in production and may be ready for the public in the fall. As always, a vaccine will be available to protect against seasonal influenza. There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza. Take these everyday steps to protect your health: ◆ Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. ◆ Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-bsaed hand cleaners are also effective. ◆ Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way. ◆ Try to avoid close contact with sick people. ◆ If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.) Keep away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick. Other important actions that you can take are: ◆ Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures. ◆ Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over-thecounter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs, tissues and other related items might could be useful and help avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious. What should I do if I get sick? If you live in areas where people have been identified with novel H1N1 flu and become ill with influenza-like symptoms, including fever, body aches, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, nausea, or vomiting or diarrhea, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people. CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine. Stay away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick. Staying at home means that you should not leave your home except to seek medical care. This means avoiding normal activities, including work, school, travel, shopping, social events, and public gatherings. If you have severe illness or you are at high risk for flu complications, contact your health care provider or seek medical care. Your health care provider will determine whether flu testing or treatment is needed.

Avalon Golf and Country Club at Squaw Creek hosts inaugural taste

T

he dog days of August provided many new and fine opportunities for area wine drinkers. Avalon Golf and Country Club at Squaw Creek hosted their inaugural wine tasting, “Tasting on the Terrace,” featuring an array of dazzling California white wines. Wine steward Brian Fry selected five distinctive white wines and paired them to a limited menu of herbed chicken, grilled salmon, and seared scallops. Fry’s first offering was the Loredona Riesling ($9.99) from California’s Monterey County. This zesty cool-climate Riesling was just delicious for our warm Saturday afternoon tasting. Light in body, this Riesling compares very favorably to a fine German Mosel Riesling. Our next selection was the Loredona 2007 Pinot Grigio ($9.99) from sourced grape locations throughout California. Like its Riesling stablemate mentioned above, this wine features light and delicate fruit flavors, and a long lemon- and hay-tinged finish. Both of these wines would be fine for Labor Day and upcoming fall celebrations. The Incognito 2006 Viognier ($18) from Lodi was our next sampling. Lush and bold fruit flavors make this large-format style of Viognier a nice choice for the herbed chicken. Thanksgiving turkey or tasty roast goose would be a fine choice for this bold Viognier. The Sonoma Vineyards 2006 Unoaked Chardonnay ($9.99) was our next selection. Medium-bodied with upfront fruit flavors, this Chardonnay was just plain delicious. Uncomplicated fresh citrus fruit flavors and a crisp, clean finish made this a delightful complement for our delicious entrees. The Abundance Vineyards 2007 Bountiful Blanc white table wine ($15) was our next selection. This Lodi white wine had a pronounced aroma of flowery Muscat and a sweet citrusy finish that was very appealing. It was particularly tasty with the seared scallops. Fry’s final wine choice was the Carpe Diem 2006 Chardonnay ($22.99) from Fire Peat Vineyard in Edna Valley, Calif. This cool climate appellation produces a number of outstanding Chardonnays, and Carpe Diem is one of the best. Fabulous citrus-tinged fruit flavors and a classic finish of toasty vanilla made this a textbook Chardonnay experience. Congratulations to Brian Fry and the Squaw Creek staff for creating a wonderful wine experience for the 80+ people in attendance.

I can readily recommend the Wente line of wines for anyone looking for top quality with an eye on their purse strings. Moving along to the local wine store tasting scene, I traveled to Vintage Estate Wine and Beer for their regular “third Saturday” tasting. My first pick was the 2008 Clayhouse Vineyard Adobe White

course, grilled calamari antipasti was paired to Wente’s 2008 Morning Fog Chardonnay. Crisp citrus and melon flavors were just the answer for the tender calamari. Local heirloom tomatoes dressed in a Riesling beurre blanc was paired to Wente’s 2007 Riverbank Riesling for the second course. Ripe peach and pear fruit flavors with a crisp clean finish were a nice match for the tasty homegrown tomatoes. Next, grilled Thai short ribs were served with a sampling of Wente’s 2006 Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon. This outstanding entrée needed a red that would complement it, and the Southern Hills Cab did just that. Well crafted dark fruit flavors with a supple, lean finish made this a food and wine combination direct from heaven.

wine guy By john Webster The fourth course of pork loin with goat cheese, spinach and shiitake mushrooms was paired to the 2006 Reliz Creek Pinot Noir. This cool-climate Pinot from Monterey County was just fine with the Grille’s pork loin. I reviewed this Pinot last month, and I am just as impressed now as I was then. This is a supple, easy-drinking Pinot Noir that should be on everyone’s shopping list for the upcoming holiday season. The dessert course consisted of a cashew

($16.99), an intriguing blend of Viognier (22 percent), Sauvignon Blanc (18 percent), Grenache Blanc (17 percent) Rousanne (16 percent), Chardonnay (6 percent), Chenin Blanc (5 percent) and Princess (16 percent). Princess is currently in the process of being judged as a standalone grape variety in California, though it is not yet recognized. This blend produces an unctuous, flower-tinged wine with a creamy textured finish that lasts forever. This would be a perfect aperitif wine for the beginning of a large dinner party, or just by itself after a hard day at the office. The 2006 Clayhouse Vineyard Adobe Red ($15.99) is a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Malbec. This bold blend of mostly central coast fruit just oozes ripe cherry and dark plum fruit flavors, followed by a supple and clean finish with just a hint of oak. My next stop was Wine Styles of Howland for their weekly wine and food sampling. Two really great wines stood out at this gathering. The Delas 2007 Cote du Rhone ($14.99), made from a blend of Syrah and Grenache, was just plain delicious. The Cuvee Saint Esprit expresses supple red and berry fruit flaSEE THE WINE GUY, PAGE 18

Proprietor Jacob Harver at the Lemon Grove in late August

Grove is in the heart (of the city) BY NATALIE LARICCIA SPECIAL TO THE METRO MONTHLY

J

acob Harver believes that downtown Youngstown is evolving into cultural haven that is in need of a creative space that encourages community collaboration and congregation. That’s one of the reasons why this 27-year-old Youngstown native was inspired to launch the Lemon Grove Cafe, an eclectic new restaurant and lounge at 122 W. Federal St. Opened Aug. 6, patrons visiting the creative cafe may think they’ve just stepped into a big city coffee house. An array of colorful artwork adorns the walks and festive hanging light bulbs dangle from the ceiling. The outside is painted in a welcoming yellow shade. One of Harver’s main goals is to provide customers with a comfortable place to gather that is an alternative to the traditional bar scene. The cafe will feature a full bar and an extensive wine list, but patrons can also enjoy coffee, juices and a sandwich, he said. Harver began his vision for the cafe when he first leased the building in June 1996. Renovating the more than 100-yearold building was a huge undertaking. The building once housed a dress shop and shoe store and remained vacant and neglected for years. The entire interior had to be gutted and completely refinished before Harver could begin working on the details and design. “I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know what to expect. I’m just happy now this has come together. It’s exceeded expectations,” Harver said. Harver wanted the interior to have a unique and rustic atmosphere, while retaining its original character. For example, the materials used to create the cafe’s wood flooring were salvaged from an old barn that was built in 1844 in Brookfield. With a kitchen that is open until 4 a.m., Harver said he hopes the cafe will fill a downtown void serving the late-night crowd. Lemon Grove manager and head chef Courtney Waskin creates the menu, which features panini sandwiches and homemade

soups. A wide selection of specialty coffees and juices are also available. The cafe will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m., Mondays through Fridays, and from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m., Saturdays and Sundays. Harver said the menu will focus on fresh ingredients and locally-grown produce. The specialty coffee and hot teas are organic and are from companies that utilize ethical free-trade business practices. In addition, customers will be able to purchase artwork displayed on the walls and the furniture on display. Over the next few months, Harver plans to expand the cafe’s inventory of furniture for sale. The furniture will be created by Keith Povec of Youngstown, a Lemon Grove staff member and furniture maker. The cafe will feature a wide array of entertainment – everything from open-mic nights, poetry readings, lectures, live music and political debates. Harver plans to make Tuesday evenings “theme nights,” which would involve all performing acts to incorporate the selected theme of the evening. “It’s an artist’s haven. Whether it’s our fine arts gallery or our spot on the stage. It’s an artistic spot in Youngstown that’s symbiotic of the community. It’s a haven for the community to relax and to discuss our rich artistic culture,” Harver said. More importantly, Harver said he hopes the Lemon Grove will help further promote the positive energy that is slowly evolving downtown. He has already formed an alliance with other downtown businesses, and he believes that this partnership can only help encourage more downtown business. Harver said Youngstown is great community that has a strong appreciation of the arts. He cited some of Youngstown’s points of interest, including Mill Creek Park, the Butler Institute of Art, the Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University and the Oakland Center for the Arts as just a few of the city’s many cultural jewels. “I would never do this anywhere else but downtown Youngstown . . . I really believe that if we really start coming together as a community, that we can be a model for other communities in how to rebuild urban developments,” he said.

vors with a long, peppery finish that would be outstanding with a fresh sliced slab of prime rib. Vintage 2007 was a benchmark in the Rhone region of France, and I would advise you to shop this one early as supply will not meet demand. The Castle Rock 2008 Pinot Noir ($14.99) from Mendocino County fruit offers gobs of supple strawberry fruit flavors that lead to a smooth clean finish that just lasts forever. Herbed grilled chicken would be a great choice for this value-priced Pinot Noir. My last stop of the month took me to Five Points Wine and Bar for their monthly tasting, this time featuring the wines of Laurello Vineyards. Owner and winemaker Larry Laurello was present to pour and explain his unique selection of wines for this get-together. His 2007 Pinot Grigio ($12.99) from the Grand River Valley was a real standout. Crisp and tart fruit flavors are balanced with a honeyed, strawlike aroma that just lasts forever. Laurello’s Gold Medal Award-winning 2007 Cabernet Franc was my next pick. Bold cherry and blackberry fruit flavors followed by a textured, spice-tinged finish made me thing I was sampling a great Cabernet Franc from the Loire region of France. Cabernet Franc from our North Shore is getting more attention from savvy wine drinkers who appreciate a well-crafted red wine at a fair price. Laurello’s 2007 Cab Franc is a great example of this region’s emerging reputation for producing fine red wine. If you’re looking for a fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon from this region, the Laurello Grand River Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 will fill the bill. 2007 was a banner

year for this region’s red wines and this hearty Cab is a fine example. Dark red fruit flavors and a long, spicy oak-tinged finish make this a wine you will find hard to resist. Also at this tasting was a small amount of Laurello’s 2007 Josephine white blend of Viognier (50 percent) and Chardonnay (50 percent). I sampled this wine last November and predicted a grand future for it. Alas, it is in short supply. Its recent Double Gold Medal Award won in California will make it even more scarce. If you can snag a bottle of this wine, you will be astounded by its quality and fineness. Upcoming wine events include Wine Styles, alternating Thursdays and Fridays; Vintage Estate third Saturday tasting; Leo’s Ristorante, Sept. 10 “The Secrets of Steinway” tasting to benefit the Warren Philharmonic Orchestra; Five Points Wine and Bar tastings (call them or visit their Web site for more information); Springfield Grille Make-a-Wish benefit tasting Sept. 12; and Upstairs Restaurant, Nov. 19 Holiday Wine Preview.

STAMBAUGH AUDITORIUM from 5 to 8 p.m.

Exploring the Valley with ‘Homeplate’ ◆ Editor’s note: Casey shares some of her favorite “go-to” recipes with readers on page 25.

I

have heard from many of you and am pleased that the reviews are positive for my television show “Homeplate with Casey Malone.” Our staff works hard to bring you behind-the-scenes insight into the food purveyors of the Mahoning Valley. I love the culture of food and wine. “Homeplate with Casey Malone” explores the ingredients, preparation, history and manufacturing of food in the Mahoning and Shenango valleys. I have learned so much about our area while taping segments for “Homeplate.” The Joy Ice Cream Cone Co. makes 1.5 billion cones a year! It’s family owned and located in Hermitage Pa. They make cones 24 hours a day, seven days a week in their high season. It’s a fascinating operation, and it’s right in our backyard. Another great story is Ghossain’s Bakery in Boardman. They are one of the few bakeries in the country that makes flat bread. Ghossain’s recently opened a retail store on Rt. 422 in Niles. These are just a few of the hundreds of people and businesses that have invested in our valley. “Homeplate” is proud to tell their story. The “Homeplate” crew has been busy attending ethnic festivals in our region. We ate our way through the Italian, Irish, Greek, Hungarian and Macedonian celebrations. Each group was so generous and welcoming, I felt like we were crashing a family reunion. “Homeplate” has just begun to scratch the surface of the diversity in our region. Our program would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and advertisers. Please support Vintage Estate Wine and Beer and Catullo Prime Meats, both located in Boardman. Phill Reda from Vintage Estate is now serving beer ice cream. It sounds crazy, but tastes amazing – and tell him Casey sent you. When you shop at Catullo’s please congratulate Danny on his recent marriage – best wishes to Danny and Kelly! Tune in to “Homeplate with Casey Malone” Saturday mornings at 7 a.m. on WYTV and Sunday mornings at 11:30 a.m. on myYTV. Refer to Metro Monthly’s dining guide and event calendar when you are heading out. An extensive list of local restaurants and events is featured. When you are out and about keep an eye out for “Homeplate,” you never know where we may show up next. You can always go to our Web site for recipes and to view past segments on www.metrohomeplate.net. Keep watching – there’s a lot more in store.

Some of the Valley’s finest dining establishments will donate their time and talent to present an array of appetizers, entrées, desserts and beverages to approximately 500 guests.

‘Homeplate’ tip: Whenever possible, shop for fresh ingredients. Casey at the Four Seasons Flea and Farmers’ Market with Dennis Barr, owner of the complex.

‘Go to’ recipes from Casey’s kitchen to you

E

very cook needs a few “go to” recipes that are tried and true. “Homeplate at Home” is a feature of “Homeplate with Casey Malone” where I get to share my favorite dishes and prepare them for you. Make them for your

friends and family, I’m sure they will enjoy them as much as I do. To watch “Homeplate at Home” segments or for more recipes please go to www.metrohomeplate.net. – Casey Malone

Casey’s Dry Rub Ribs 2 whole slabs pork baby back ribs Dry Rub: 8 tbsp. tightly packed light brown sugar 3 tbsp. kosher salt 1 tbsp. chili powder 1/2 tsp. paprika 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper 1/2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning 1/2 tsp. onion salt 1/2 tsp. char seasoning 1/2 tsp. cumin Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Place each slab of ribs on heavy duty aluminum foil, dull side up. Massage rub into both sides of slabs. Seal the the slabs into foil packets. Refrigerate the ribs for at least one hour (6-8 hours is preferred). Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place foil packets containing ribs on baking sheets and bake in oven for 2 1/2 hours. After baking, ribs can be served sliced into 1 to 2 bone portions. Ribs can also be placed on heated grill and finished for another 5 to 10 minutes, allowing seasonings to caramelize. *This recipe is enough for 2 whole slabs of ribs. If preparing more, keep the spice ratio the same. Dry rub is also delicious on boneless skinless chicken breasts and pork tenderloin.

Casey's Tuna Fennel Pasta Ingredients 2 5 oz. cans imported tuna packed in olive oil, drained 1 tsp. fennel seeds 1 tsp. crushed red pepper 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 6 cloves of garlic minced zest of 1 lemon 1 tsp. salt 1 lb. linguine 1 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes in juices 4 tblsp. chopped fresh flat leaf parsley (for garnish) Fill stockpot with water and bring to boil. Add 2 tablespoons of salt and add linguine. Cook until al dente. Stir occasionally. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, red pepper and fennel seed. Cook until garlic is just golden. Add tuna and 1 teaspoon of salt. Raise heat until tuna begins to sizzle, keep tuna in larger pieces. Add tomatoes and juices and warm through for 2 minutes until softened. Use potato masher to break up tomatoes. Stir in lemon zest. Drain linguine and reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water. Add linguine to skillet and stir to cover with the sauce. Cook over low heat for a minute or so. If pasta seems dry, add pasta water a little at a time. Place on serving platter and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

FLEA MARKET – TNR of Warren is hosting another flea market on Saturday, Sept. 5 in the Crest Lanes parking lot. TNR of Warren, Inc. is a Trumbull County-based, all volunteer 501(c) 3 organization. We trap, neuter and return feral cats to their managed colonies. Since last summer, we have altered 277 cats from Warren neighborhoods. We do not receive any local, state, or government funds. Our efforts are supported by donations and by fund raising such as this flea market.
