The hardship of the Cleveland Indians fan is so familiar that the phrase “there’s always next year” becomes easier and easier to say every year. Nearly anyone who knows sports can likely name the numerous things that have happened to the Indians in the last two decades alone. After making several playoff appearances in the 1990s – and each year never winning a World Series title – supernatural levels of sports pain set in. The ups and downs that go throughout the long, six-month season have its tradition and excitement, but it all starts on a day I like to consider my personal Christmas.

MAHONING VALLEY/UPDATE

Penn National approves pact with Ohio Horsemen

P

enn National Gaming, Inc. (Nasdaq: PENN) announced that it has signed an agreement with the Ohio Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (OHBPA) that covers all aspects of thoroughbred racing at Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, currently under construction in Austintown. The signing formalizes an agreement first outlined by Penn National and the OHBPA at the February meeting of the Ohio State Racing Commission – an agreement the Commission characterized in a press release as “positive progress.” “We are hopeful that with a signed contract now in hand, the Commission will act at its next scheduled meeting this month to issue a racing permit and approve the 2014 racing dates we have applied for at Mahoning Valley,” said Christopher McErlean, vice president of Racing for Penn National. Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014. Penn National has requested 21 live racing dates for the 2014 season at the onemile track beginning Nov. 24. In addition to the race track, the facility includes an enclosed grandstand seating more than 1,000 and a video lottery terminal facility that will include approximately 850 VLTs at opening, plus restaurants, bars and other patron amenities. The agreement covers issues including the number of stalls to be constructed (988 in 13 barns), revenue sharing on proceeds from VLT revenues to boost race purses, approvals for simulcast of races originating at the track, a coordinated year round racing schedule with ThistleDown Racino and dormitory spaces for grooms working for horse riders at the track. Penn National is spending $125 million in Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, exclusive of an additional $125 million in license and relocation fees required by the state of Ohio. Approximately 1,000 construction jobs will be created during the life of the construction process, and an additional 1,000 direct and indirect jobs are anticipated to be created once the facility opens.

The Arms Family Museum will reopen Friday, April 4, for regular hours.

March 31, 2014. Bevack will remain on the Board of Directors of both United Community and Home Savings, and the Board has retained Bevack as an adviser for two years. Bevack, who joined Home Savings in June 2000, was appointed president and chief executive officer of United Community on January 1, 2011. Additionally, Bevack has served as president and CEO of Home Savings since March 2009.

Pat achieved all that the Board asked of him, and we are grateful to his leadership, dedication and tremendous effort, and we appreciate his willingness to stay on the Board and serve as an advisor to our team.” Small joins UCFC and Home Savings as its president and CEO, bringing more than 28 years of industry experience and a successful record of developing businesses, growing revenue and improving organizational performance.

ara B. Chase, a Boston area preservation consultant, will be starting work in the Arms Family Museum dining room on Monday, March 31. The museum’s dining room sustained heavy damage after a water pipe burst inside a second floor wall in January. Chase will be analyzing the fabric, paint and plaster in the dining room as the first step toward repairing the damage and restoring the room to its original appearance. Additional research and analysis will lead to the production of a detailed report on the various colors on the walls and ceiling, and a treatment plan for the eventual restoration work. Work on the dining room will be ongoing for several months.

Christmas in April T

he hardship of the Cleveland Indians fan is so familiar that the phrase ÒthereÕs always next yearÓ becomes easier and easier to say every year. Nearly anyone who knows sports can likely name the numerous things that have happened to the Indians in the last two decades alone. After making several playoff appearances in the 1990s – and each year Other never winning a Voices World Series title – supernatural levCaitlyn els of sports pain set Brown in. The wild thing about all of this suffering is that the city of Cleveland and its fans are still obsessed with a team that has been through it all. The ups and downs that go throughout the long, sixmonth season have its tradition and excitement, but it all starts on a day I like to consider my personal Christmas. It’s a day like no other – thrilling and filled with anticipation. It’s one day where there are no worries or doubts – a day to celebrate a new slate with a wide range of long- awaited goals to be put to rest. After the last painful game of the previous season, my family and I count the days until the Cleveland Indians’ Opening Day, a day I like to call Christmas. After the long waited off-season of wishing and day dreaming about how good or hideously horrible the Indians are going to be this coming season, there is nothing like Opening Day to determine the capability of the team. When a new player comes to bat or does something exciting to make you think the team will do good this year, it’s like opening presents on Christmas. Opening Day indicates the end of a long, boring winter and relights hopes for an Indians World Series. Out of all 162 game days, there is no other anticipated game like Opening Day. Merry Christmas, Tribe fans. Spring and baseball are here. It is now time to enjoy America’s greatest pastime. To many, baseball is just a game. But to the real diehard fan, it’s much more. Some might think it’s crazy to leave work or take off school just to sit at a three hour baseball game and consume

Opening Day indicates the end of a long, boring winter and relights hopes for an Indians World Series. $4 beverages and overpriced hot dogs. With all that said, there is more to it. Just because it’s a baseball game, doesn’t mean there aren’t any traditions, I mean, come on, it is Christmas! ”There’s a red moon rising On the Cuyahoga River rolling into Cleveland to the lake.” One can find these famous lyrics at the beginning of the movie “Major League,” a classic baseball movie about the Cleveland Indians working their way to the top. To any Indians fan, this sentimental song can make emotions run wild. I have never gone to a home opener and not watched “Major League” the morning of the game, a tradition none the less. Besides my mother, I grew up in a family of all boys. For most of my life, I was always one of the boys. Most girls I knew growing up liked to go shopping with their mothers and sisters, but I went on a different path. I always liked baseball. Even at a young age, when I didn’t know much about the game, I just loved the atmosphere and, of course, the hot dogs at the ballpark. Baseball, it’s something that’s always there. Every spring it starts back up, and even though baseball ends, I know it’s always going to come back. It is my comfort zone and a commitment that’s worth a lot. I haven’t missed a home opener since I was in the fifth grade and, hopefully, I never will. Every year, each home opener becomes bigger and better. Every year, the great pastime becomes more relevant and meaningful. As I get older, I notice all the other fans who share the same level of interest as me. They all get out of their winter slump – ready for a new season of Indians baseball to begin. With a new season, anything is possible. It’s a time when Tribe fans get to say, “We’re in first place,” which doesn’t happen very often. That’s our Christmas present.

ferent copays and deductibles to meet your needs. Q: Can I buy health insurance coverage anytime I want? A: No. Health insurance is offered to anyone who applies, but only during open enrollment periods. The initial Marketplace open enrollment period began on Oct. 1, 2013, and continued to March 31, 2014. During this time period, anyone who applies will be offered coverage. After March 31, 2014, the open enrollment period for 2014 ended, and insurance companies will only enroll people under special circumstances, such as when a person loses his or her employer coverage. Check with the Marketplace or a health insurance company to see if you qualify for a special enrollment opportunity. The next open enrollment period (for coverage to become

Q: When someone installs an oil and gas well on my property, is there any waste? If so, what kind? A: Yes. Drilling well borings for oil and gas production creates a variety of wastes and byproducts including drill cuttings, drilling mud, pipe scale and brine. Drill cuttings are generally pulverized rock returned to the surface during the drilling of the well boring. Drilling mud is typically a semi-solid dirt/ fluid mixture designed to keep the boring open during drilling. Pipe scale is a buildup caused by drilling that sticks to boring surfaces and drilling equipment. Brine is basically salty water produced from the rock layers and combined with some drilling fluids. Brine is generated during the well-drilling or fracking process, and during the cleaning and development process used to prepare for oil and gas production. These various types of waste or byproducts may contain oil-based substances and low-level, naturally occurring radioactive materials. Each waste or byproduct generated is handled according to its nature and type. Q: What regulatory controls address oil and gas well wastes in Ohio? A: In July 2013, House Bill 59 amended several sections of Ohio law to provide greater assurance that oil and gas well waste is being managed safely. These amendments give the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) greater oversight and coordination over oil and gas well management, and revise Ohio’s solid waste statute for “Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material,” as explained below. As of 2014, a person is prohibited from storing, recycling, treating, processing or disposing of brine or other wastes associated with the exploration, development, well stimulation, production operations or plugging of oil and gas resources unless the Chief of the ODNR, Division of Oil & Gas Resources Management, gives that person an order or permit. Laws in the Ohio Revised Code (Chapter 1509) govern disposal of brine waste. Non-brine waste material that is removed from the drilling site must be disposed of according to Ohio solid waste law. Q: What does the law say about how oil and gas well wastes must be handled? A: Generally, drill cuttings may be managed on the drill site. Drill cuttings and scale that come into contact with refined oil-based substances or other contaminants are generally disposed offsite; the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency regulates these substances as solid waste. Drilling muds typically are recycled, since they can be useful for subsequent borings. The ODNR Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management regulates brine transport and disposal. The Division also permits and oversees underground injection wells for disposal of waste fluids including brine. Drillers may also need an Ohio EPA air permit for installations or activities that emit air pollutants. Q: Can oil and gas well development cause radioactive materials to move within the environment? A: Yes. Soils and muds produced during oil and gas well development may emit radionuclides. Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) consists of undisturbed materials that exist in the environment and emit low levels of naturallyoccurring radiation. An example of NORM is the radon gas collecting in home basements. NORM is exempted from regulation.

illions of families throughout much of the world now live in condominiums, and, as Americans pull out of recession, we likely will see this unique form of real property ownership continue to grow. The legal “device” known as a “condominium” provides a multitude of real property ownership opportunities. Q: What, exactly, is a condominium? A: You cannot recognize a condominium or a condominium unit by sight, touch, smell or even use. For example, a “condominium” might appear to be a duplex, a single family home development, an attached row, ranch, or town home, an apartment building or complex, an industrial park, a commercial office building or even an entire community. Condominiums may include residential housing, shopping centers, churches, schools, stables and even jails. You can’t fully tell what a condominium is by its Latin meaning (“joint dominion”) but aspects of that definition are key to condominium ownership and living. Technically, a condominium is any developed real property that has been “subjected to” a state’s statutes (written laws) allowing condominium development. Q: How do the condominium statutes work? A: Condominium statutes vary from state to state. In Ohio, they allow a developer who meets certain requirements and takes certain legal steps to lawfully divide a piece of (usually already developed) real property into parcels of space that can be separately owned. Each parcel of space has all of the essential legal attributes of any other separate parcel of real property. This means that each can be separately owned, conveyed, taxed, mortgaged, liened, bequeathed and inherited. For people who want to own their own property, have their own mortgage(s), (hopefully) enjoy the benefit of increasing property values and other attributes of real property ownership, condominium units ex-

Condominiums may include residential housing, shopping centers, churches, schools, stables and even jails.

A: The “space as real property” concept is not part of our real property law heritage, which was derived from English property law. In fact, without the condominium statutes, the space constituting a tenth floor apartment, for example, could not be treated as a separate piece of real property. Ohio’s “enabling” condominium statutes, however, allow such space to become real property. Q: What happens to the part of the property that is not included in the “space?“ A: When a piece of real property becomes a condominium by using a state’s condominium statutes, the property is divided generally into “units” and “common elements.” In most condominiums a unit is simply a cubicle of space that may include various items, such as floors, ceilings, windows and doors, which a state statute or a drafter of condominium “governing documents” may provide. All other parts of a “typical” condominium property that are not defined as a part of a unit (including, in Ohio, the underlying land) are common elements. These common elements are not considered separate parcels of real property. Rather, an “undivided” portion or percentage of the common elements is allocated to (and

owned by) each unit as “an appurtenance” —a part of the legal title—to that unit. So, if you buy a condominium unit, you also will own an “undivided” portion of the condominium’s common elements. For instance, your portion of the condominium’s common elements might be one-tenth in a 10-unit condominium, even though your portion cannot be physically identified, and will always remain unidentified and unidentifiable! Q: So, if I say I’m buying a condominium, I’m really only buying a share in a condominium. Is that right? A: Yes. Although most people, including many of those in the real estate industry, talk and write about buying and selling “condominiums,” they really mean they are buying and selling units in a condominium.

Health Insurance Marketplace helps Ohioans shop for coverage FROM THE OHIO BAR ASSOCIATION

Question: What is the Health Insurance Marketplace? Answer: The Marketplace is an informational resource you can visit online to shop for, compare and purchase health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The Marketplace will inform you if you qualify for low income tax credits to lower the cost of insurance. It will also let you know if you qualify for Medicaid coverage and will help you with Medicaid enrollment. In Ohio, the federal government operates the Marketplace. You can contact the Marketplace by visiting www.healthcare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596. Q: Who can shop for coverage in the Marketplace? A: The Marketplace offers coverage to individuals and families. Small employers with fewer than 50 full time workers can also buy Marketplace cover-

age for their workers, but large employers with more than 50 full time workers cannot buy coverage on the Marketplace at this time. Q: What kind of health insurance does the Marketplace sell? A: The Marketplace sells health insurance offered by private insurance companies. Marketplace insurance is comprehensive and covers medical services including hospitalization, physician services, maternity, mental health, substance abuse, prescription drugs, lab tests, preventive services, medical devices, rehabilitation, pediatric dental and vision, and other services required by law. Q: Will the coverage sold through the Marketplace pay for all my health care? A: In most cases, the health insurance sold by the Marketplace has copays and deductibles requiring you to pay for a part of the cost of health care when you receive it. You can choose from plans with dif-

GAS WASTE, FROM PAGE 10 However, when NORM radionuclides are modified, either naturally or through various technologies, they may become concentrated. When this happens, they turn into Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (TENORM). The Ohio Department of Health, Bureau of Radiation Protection, has primary regulatory authority over TENORM. Besides oil and gas wastes, examples of TENORM wastes include wastes derived from the metal mining/processing industry, and sludge from water treatment plants – and from geothermal energy production. TENORM is also found in phosphate fertilizers. Q: What does Ohio law say about handling TENORM wastes? A: Ohio has some of the most stringent TENORM rules in the country. TENORM wastes cannot be disposed of at the drill pad. Oil and gas drilling solids that are also TENORM must be tested for radium concentrations before leaving the drill pad. TENORM wastes with concentrations of less than 5 pico-curies per gram above a “natural background” (about 79.4 millirem) may be disposed of at licensed solid waste landfills. Wastes with elevated concentrations of TENORM must be sent to a low-level radioactive waste disposal facility. If brine contains TENORM, brine disposal laws govern disposal. In Ohio, this almost always means that the brine is injected into a deep well for disposal. This “Law You Can Use” column was provided by the Ohio State Bar Association.

HEALTH INSURANCE, FROM PAGE 10 effective in 2015) begins on Oct. 15, 2014, and extends until Dec. 7, 2014. Q: What if I already have coverage? A: If you have employer coverage, you can stay on your employer’s health plan. If you have individual coverage, you can shop for new health insurance in the Marketplace or keep your current policy. If you have individual coverage, your coverage may change to meet new federal requirements at the time of your annual renewal in 2014, and you can shop for other coverage at that time. Q: Does having employer coverage affect my ability to get low-income subsidies through the Marketplace? A: Yes. If your employer offers you coverage that meets certain federal standards, you will not be eligible for low income subsidies through the Marketplace. Generally, if the coverage your employer provides is at least as good as coverage sold on the Marketplace, and your employer makes a minimum contribution toward the cost of coverage, you will not be able to get a low income subsidy on the Marketplace. If you do have employer coverage available to you, you should compare the costs and benefits of your employer’s health plan to the costs and benefits of the health insurance offered on the Marketplace. Check with your employer to find out the details of your employer’s health plan, and to see if your employer’s plan meets the federal minimum requirements. Q: Where can I get more information about Marketplace coverage? A: To get more information, or to shop for coverage, contact the Marketplace by visiting www. healthcare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596.

Landmark study Comprehensive report outlines Hispanic/Latino health, habits FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH

A

comprehensive health and lifestyle analysis of people from a range of Hispanic/Latino origins shows that this segment of the U.S. population is diverse, not only in ancestry, culture, and economic status, but also in the prevalence of several diseases, risk factors, and lifestyle habits. These health data are derived from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos, a landmark study that enrolled about 16,415 Hispanic/Latino adults living in San Diego, Chicago, Miami, and the Bronx, who self-identified with Central American, Cuban, Dominican, Mexican, Puerto Rican, or South American origins. These new findings have been compiled and published as the “Hispanic Community Health Study Data Book: A Report to the Communities.” “Although Hispanics represent 1 out of every 6 people in the U.S., our knowledge about Hispanic health has been limited,” said Larissa Avilés-Santa, M.D., M.P.H, a medical officer in the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, and project officer of the HCHS/SOL. “These detailed findings provide a foundation to address questions about the health of the U.S. Hispanic/ Latino population and a critical understanding of risk factors that could lead to improved health in all communities. “The information contained in the HCHS/SOL data book will enable individuals, communities, scientists, and health policy makers to tailor health intervention strategies to improve the health of all Hispanics,” she added. The numerous findings described by the HCHS/ SOL researchers confirmed some existing knowledge while also uncovering some new health trends. Among the items highlighting Hispanic diversity: ◆ The percentage of people who reported having asthma ranged from 7.4 (among those of Mexican ancestry) to 35.8 (among those of Puerto Rican ancestry). ◆ The percentage of individuals with hypertension ranged from 20.3 (South American) to 32.2 (Cuban). ◆ The percentage of people eating five or more servings of fruits/vegetables daily ranged from 19.2 (Puerto Rican origin) to 55.0 (Cuban origin). Also, men reported consuming more fruit and vegetables than women. ◆ Women reported a much lower consumption of sodium than men among all Hispanic groups represented in the study. The new data also found some areas of more general importance for Hispanic health. ◆ About 1 in 3 individuals had pre-diabetes, also fairly evenly distributed among Hispanic groups. ◆ Only about half of individuals with diabetes among all Hispanic groups had it under control. During the first phase of HCHS/SOL, study participants underwent an extensive clinical evaluation to identify the prevalence of diseases and risk or protective factors, as well as lifestyle and sociocultural and economic factors. While cardiovascular and lung health were key components of the evaluation, HCHS/SOL also performed a dental exam, hearing tests, and a glucose toler-

A comprehensive health and lifestyle analysis of people from a range of Hispanic/Latino origins shows that this segment of the U.S. population is diverse, not only in ancestry, culture, and economic status, but also in the prevalence of several diseases, risk factors, and lifestyle habits. ance test. Most of the information presented in this Data Book was collected through interviews. Analyses of clinical measurements performed during the baseline examination are under way and will be published in the future. Since the baseline examination, which took place from 2008 to 2011, study participants have answered an annual interview. This is being done to explore the relationship between baseline health profiles and changes in health, particularly cardiovascular health. A new examination period is expected to start in October 2014 to reassess certain health measurements and understand the relationship between the identified risk factors during the first visit and future disease in Hispanic populations. The HCHS/SOL project was led by NHLBI, with additional funding from six other Institutes.

iabetes mellitus – characterized by elevated blood glucose – has become a growing health problem in this country. Diabetes leads to serious health complications and is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Complications, due to damage to nerves and blood vessels, include: kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease, atherosclerosis, and hypertension. Studies have shown that adults with diabetes have heart disease and stroke death rates two to four times higher than nondiabetics. The American Dia- Vicki betes Association (ADA) es- Haywood timates that the health-care cost for the treatment of dia- Doe betes and related complications run about $174 billion annually. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 24 million Americans suffer from the disease. Between 90 and 95 percent are type 2 diabetes. Type 2 is characterized by the cells becoming resistant to insulin and is associated with lifestyle habits and genetics. Type2 diabetics tend to be sedentary, overweight or obese, and have excessive body fat in the abdominal area. Other risk factors include family history, age (45 years or older), high blood pressure, pre-diabetic, abnormal cholesterol (lipid) levels, and being an ethnic minority. African-Americans and Hispanics are twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The CDC reports that approximately 4.9 million African-Americans have this disease. The highest rate of type 2 diabetes is seen in adults 60 years or older. However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) states that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing alarmingly among children. This trend seems to be related to increased childhood obesity. The first step in controlling diabetes-associated health complications is knowing if you have the disease. Diagnosis is essential. Unfortunately, 5.5 million people are unaware that they are diabetic. An important step in managing diabetes is for individuals to take full responsibility in “knowing their numbers.” It’s important to know/ keep blood glucose levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels within the normal target range. The National Diabetes Education Program recommends the target range for reducing heart disease and stroke for most diabetics to be: ◆ A1C (blood glucose): less than 7 percent (checked at least twice a year); ◆ Blood pressure: less than 130/80 mmHg (checked every doctor’s visit); ◆ Cholesterol (LDL): less than 100 mg/dl (checked once a year). Successful target-level management can be achieved by eating healthy and staying active. (Research has shown that exercise is an effective way in preventing and treating type 2 diabetes.) Type 2 diabetics who participate in regular exercise experienced lower fasting blood glucose concentrations, improved insulin sensitivity, weight loss, improved lipid levels, reduction in blood pressure, and lower risk for cardiovascular disease. Type 2 diabetics should participate in an exercise program that includes both aerobic and resistance training, unless they have significant limitations or complications. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends: Aerobic training ◆ Burn at least 1,000 calories/week; accumulate at least 150 minutes/week. When possible, add additional minutes/week. This helps overweight and

obese individuals to achieve weight loss. ◆ Frequency: three to seven days/week. ◆ Intensity: 50 to 80 percent Heart Rate Reserve (HRR). Moderate intensity is recommended, activities at higher intensity (less than 60 percent HRR) depends on the individual’s fitness level and tolerance. ◆ Time: Start with at least 10 minute sessions accumulating at 30 to 60 minutes each day. ◆ Type: Rhythmic, using large muscle groups. Mode of exercise should fit the individual’s abilities and needs. Walking is common. For those with orthopedic and peripheral nerve damage, there’s swimming, water aerobics, stationary bikes, non-weight bearing equipment and low-impact activities. Resistance training ◆ Resistance training maintains and increases muscle mass, which helps with glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. It also increases resting metabolic rate, which helps with overall weight loss and control. ◆ Frequency: two to three non-consecutive days. ◆ Intensity: two to three sets of eight to 12 repetitions. Lifts should be low to moderate intensity. ◆ Time: Focus on major muscle groups. Eight-10 complex (multi-joint) exercises using the upper and lower body. ◆ Type: Based on individual needs and tolerance. Use weight machines, body weight, resistance bands, and free weights. Avoid increases in blood pressure; avoid sustained gripping; avoid Valsalva maneuver; holding breath. Allow five to 10 minutes of warm-up and five to 10 minutes of cool down to prevent injuries. Any successful exercise program should progress slowly, have realistic, manageable goals, and a supportive network for encouragement. Before undertaking any exercise programs, individuals should consult their physician or health-care provider. Follow necessary precautions to make sure exercise is safe and fun. Monitor blood glucose levels to help avoid hypoglycemic events (drop in blood glucose levels). (Tests should be taken before and 15 minutes after exercise.) Drink water before, during and after exercise. Wear proper fitting shoes and clothing. Eating a healthy well-balanced diet and making healthy food choices is essential for managing and controlling type 2 diabetes and successful weight loss. The USDA Food Guide and the American Dietetic Association recommends: ◆ Eat a balanced diet complete with nutrientdense whole foods and beverages; eat more fiberrich whole grains, fruits and vegetables, fat-free dairy products, and lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish); reduce sodium intake; reduce fats (no more than 30 percent of the diet; with less than 10 percent coming from saturated fats; stay away from processed foods, processed sugars and sugary beverages; drink plenty of water at least 6-8 glasses a day; stay away from high-calorie low-nutrient foods; decrease portion size and number of portions consumed. Consult with a registered dietitian to learn how to count carbohydrates, understand the glycemic index and design appropriate meals. Living with diabetes can be challenging. However, this disease can be controlled through rigorous self-management, combined with healthy eating, regular exercise and proper medications to maintain optimal target levels. Communicating with your physician, dietitian, exercise specialist, and other health care professionals and keeping connected with a supportive community is essential.

HOMEPLATE HOMESTYLE Classic recipes to whet your appetite for season 4! Page 16

Local wineries pour at St. Michael’s charity event M arch came roaring in with a host of fine wine events, with great selections I found for everyone’s taste and budget. This year, I attended the 8th annual St. Michael’s Family Life Center benefit wine tasting. Over 200 people attended, with four wine distributors and three local wineries presenting their offerings. The Embassy banquet center (Michael and Karen Naffah) provided a scrumpThe tious array of foods. Wine I started off by Guy loading my plate John Webster with Caesar salad and an assortment of imported cheeses. My first wine pick was a glass of 2011 Martin Codax Albarino White from the Rias Baixas region of Spain. Refreshing citrus fruit flavors and a crisp clean finish worked nicely with the summery Caesar salad. Another fine white being poured was Barrel Run Crossing’s 129 Locomotion. An interesting blend of Seyval Blanc and Traminette, it produces oodles of off-dry citrus and pear fruit flavors that were a perfect match for sharp cheese. Local vintner Dan Mastropietro was on hand pouring some of his wines and offered me a glass of his delicious Chardonnay. Buttery apricot fruit flavors and a long clean finish had me asking for another sample. After filling my dinner dish with assorted pastas and visiting the carving table, I headed to Tri-County’s wine station and asked for something new in red wine. If you haven’t tried the Montevina 2007 Barbera from Amador County, you’re missing out on a real treat. I thought I was sampling a fine Piedmont Barbera from northern Italy, at a fraction of the cost. Defined red fruit flavors and a lush berrytinged finish were just the answer for the pastas I had selected. This wine would be great for outdoor summer grilling. For dessert, I took a selection of Brix chocolate and secured a glass of Raymond 2011 R Collection Lot No. 3 Red Blend. The lush red fruit and berry fla-

vors of Lot. No. 3 were perfect with the superb Brix chocolate.

Chardonnay. Joel Gotts Chardonnay is a multi-county blend (Sonoma, Napa and Monterey) that produces a crisp, citrusy Chablis-like white that was fabulous with the blackened catfish. My next white was the Franciscan Estate 2012 Chardonnay from Napa Valley. Textbook Napa Chardonnay fruit flavors and a sultry toasty finish were just the answer for the delicious smoked salmon (one of my favorites in the Valley). I found an interesting red blend from the Lazio region of Italy to try. The If You See Kay IGT is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, and Primitivo. Rich red fruit flavors lead to a unique herb- and berry-tinged finish. It was a great match with the grilled kielbasa. I finished my tasting with a plate of assorted desserts and a glass of Australia’s fine Penfolds Club Port. The biscotti and tawny port was a perfect match. I want to thank Vernon’s sommelier Dennis Huston for all his METRO MONTHLY ELECTRONIC IMAGE BY JOHN WEBSTER help and Vernon’s staff for a wonVernon's Café sommelier Dennis Huston at the restauderful evening. rant's annual Fat Tuesday celebration. On March 14, I attended the 9th annual Youngstown Local vintner Dan Mastropietro was

on hand pouring some of his wines and offered me a glass of his delicious Chardonnay. Buttery apricot fruit flavors and a long clean finish had me asking for another sample. I want to thank committee members Jim and Maxine Gordon, Mike and Karen Naffah, and master of ceremonies Gerry Ricciutti for making me feel at home at this great event. My next event took me to Vernon’s Café in Niles for their legendary Fat Tuesday celebration. Owner Vernon Cesta puts on one of the finest events in our valley, and this year’s fun fest was no exception. Jambalaya, blackened catfish, oysters, mussels and smoked salmon with tables of antipastos and desserts were just a sampling of what Vernon’s sets out for their guests. I got right to work by filling my plate with blackened catfish and smoked salmon, accompanied by a glass of Joel Gotts 2012 Unoaked

Area Grocers’ Association Wine and Beer Taste held at Stambaugh Auditorium in

Youngstown, to benefit the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown’s HIV-AIDS Ministry and the Prince of Peace Center. Nearly 500 attended this year’s affair. Numerous wine and beer distributors provided delicious samples of their products to go with the outstanding food prepared by chef Kirk Gray and his talented staff. My first wine pick of the evening was the Brancott Estates 2013 Flight Song Pinot Grigio from New Zealand. For those of us

watching our weight, the Flight Song Pinot Grigio offers a tasty citrusy-tinged glass of wine with only 80 percent of the normal calories. It was wonderful with my plate of selected fruits and cheeses. Another interesting white being poured was California’s Apothic 2012 White Blend. Roughly equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Riesling make this crisp blend a great choice for upcoming summer dining.

My first red wine sample was a glass of

Meridian Vineyards 2010 Pinot Noir from

California. It’s difficult to find a good Pinot Noir at under $20 a bottle, but Meridian Vineyards has produced a clean, fruitforward cherry- and berry-tinged Pinot for $7.99. It was perfect with the lemony salmon. My next pick was the 2006 Montevina Zinfandel from California’s Amador County. Dark red fruit flavors follow through to a textbook Amador County Zin finish of berries and spice. Keep this red in mind when you fire up the grill for ribs and chicken this summer. Two beers really stood out for upcoming picnic and patio dining. The Sea Dog Brewery of Portland, Maine offers a raspberry or apricottinged brew and both are delicious. A fruit salad topped with Brie cheese would be a tasty match for these fine beers. Thanks to the Grocers Association and Larry Donofrio for inviting me to this exciting wine and beer event – I can’t wait till next year. On Sunday, March 16, I attended a beer dinner taste at the Springfield Grille in Boardman featuring beers from the New Belgium Brewery

INGREDIENTS

4 medium potatoes ½ pound thick sliced smoked lean bacon, cut into squares 1 large onion finely chopped 6 large eggs 1 tablespoon milk 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper ¼ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons butter or oil Snipped fresh chives or chopped parsley for garnish

2 pie doughs, or store bought. (prebake) 4 large eggs, 4 large yolks 2 cups whole milk 2 cups 40 percent whole cream 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper ( you may use white pepper for a better look) 2 pinches grated nutmeg 4 ounces Gruyere cheese grated ( about 1 cup) 4 ounces Jarlsberg cheese grated ( about 1 cup)

PREPARATION PREPARATION Boil the potatoes for 30 minutes, until tender but not falling apart. Drain and cool completely, preferably overnight in the refrigerator. Put the bacon into a large skillet, cook over medium heat (stirring occasionally) until the bacon is browned on all sides but not crisp.

Preheat oven to 375. Punch through the bottom of a pie shell with a fork a number of times to create air holes. Bake until the pie shell begins to bubble. Remove to cool. After 3 minutes, spread the cheese evenly in both shells. Whisk all remaining ingredients for the custard to blend. Pour this over the cheese and place into the oven (use a sheet pan as a drip catcher.) If your oven is true, you’ll want to place this pan in the middle of the oven and cook till golden brown (about 32-35 minutes). Inserting a knife on the side one inch into center it should come back clean, the center will giggle as a gelatin would. This will firm up as everything continues to cook and set!

WINE GUY, PAGE 15 in Fort Collins, Colorado. Once again the Springfield Grille outdid themselves with a menu that was outstanding. For starters, we were offered a glass of Ranger India Pale Ale. Amber in color with hints of pine and citrusy lemon, it was very quaffable. Our first course was pork belly sliders with smoked mango jalapeno relish and pickled radishes. A glass of New Belgium’s Snapshot Wheat Beer with refreshing aromas of citrus and hops went well with the seared barbecued pork belly sliders. Our next course featured pan-fried sea bass with Hawaiian sea salt chips paired with a glass of crisp yet smooth-tasting Fat Tire Amber Ale. This was a crowd favorite pairing. Irish bangers have always been a favorite of mine, and the Grille’s version is just plain delicious. Drizzled in Rampant Imperial IPA and served over roasted root vegetables, it was paired to a glass of New Belgium’s Rampant Imperial IPA. Copper colored and citrusy, the Rampant finishes with a hint of sweetness. It was a great choice for the Irish bangers. Our main course was Andouille sausagestuffed quail with whipped cauliflower served with a glass of Trippel Belgian Style Ale. Creamy textured with a hoppy spice-tinged finish, it was a seamless pairing. Our dessert course consisted of the Springfield’s Irish Car Bomb Float with homemade root beer drizzled with whiskey salted caramel. It was paired to a glass of 1554 Black Lager from New Belgium Brewery. Dark in color with a hint of chocolate, it finishes smooth and toasty. It was a fine ending to our tasting. I want to thank the Springfield Grille and its staff for a wonderful Sunday afternoon of fine food and beer. On our local store tasting front, I found a number of tasty wines. With Bordeaux prices spiraling, it’s difficult to find a good one for under $30. At $15.99, the is a real gem. Medium bodied with black cherry and currant flavors, it finishes long with hints of chocolate and spice. Earlier in this column, I mentioned Brancott Estates Flight Song Pinot Grigio from New Zealand. Their 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is outstanding also ($13.99). Light straw in color with textbook New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc fruit flavors, it finishes bright and clean with a hint of ripe lemon. Upcoming events include Friday, April 25, Michael Charles Premier Wines (Elm Road) wine dinner at Vernon’s Cafe; 6:30 p.m. Also on Friday, April 25, the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center is hosting a fundraising wine taste at their beautiful center.

All ages are welcome, however some scenes are graphic. Keep this in mind if you are considering bringing young children. After more than 20 years of producing “The Earth Trembled,” Top Hat Production’s president, Brian Palumbo, has announced that this will be the final season for the Passion play. Operating as a touring company for more than 10 years, Top Hat traveled throughout Ohio using a core group of Top Hat performers as main characters and members of churches visited in supporting roles. Some productions saw as many as 85 cast members on stage at a time at venues in Hubbard, Mineral Ridge, Campbell, Canfield and Youngstown. Remaining a non-profit, completely volunteer-driven Christian organization, Top Hat said that the ministry has survived solely on the grace of God and the blessings of private donors, and considers it quite an accomplishment that they have been able to staff years of productions without having anyone involved on a payroll.

These casualties exceeded those of all other U.S. wars and affected nearly every family in the North and South. What is not often understood or appreciated now are the rapid advancements made in American medicine that were stimulated by this conflict. This presentation by Dr. Peter D’Onofrio, president of the Society of Civil War Surgeons, explains those advances and their impact on the subsequent development of American medicine. D’Onofrio will be dressed in period military uniform and portray Robert Nelson Barr, who was the 4th Surgeon General for the State of Ohio during the Civil War. He will speak to the audience as if they are the County Soldiers’ Aid Society, and the time period will be one year after the end of the war. 2 p.m. Free.
