VALLEY UPDATE

TechBelt gets $130,000 for regional development

T

he TechBelt Initiative, comprised of technology stakeholders in northeastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and northern West Virginia, recently recieved $100,000 from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, $25,000 from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, and $5,000 from the Raymond John Wean Foundation. The support will enable TechBelt to organize collaborative economic development and identify new investment opportunities. TechBelt members represent economic-development organizations, foundations, researchers, and chambers of commerce in the tri-state area. Since its formation in 2008, TechBelt has expanded from life sciences to include energy and advanced manufacturing. TechBelt has been working to create new industry and university partnerships, responding to competitive grant opportunities and connecting cross-state resources to attract new investment. The goal of TechBelt is to establish the region as a global center for public and private investment, research, and manufacturing. The Initiative has brought more than $74 million in funding and research to the area. Of particular note is the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII), which brought $30 million in federal investment, as well as $39 million in additional matching dollars to the Youngstown-Warren area. NAMII provides a method for TechBelt to reinvigorate manufacturing in the region. “In 2013 we plan to use this foundation funding to leverage the momentum being generated by NAMII, “ said Eric Planey, vice president, International Business Attraction for the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber,

and co-chairman of the TechBelt Initiative. ‘”We have identified advanced manufacturing as a sector that will have a lasting, positive economic development impact on the region.” The energy sector is another focus of TechBelt. In addition, 2013 will focus on combining the respective strengths of southwestern Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio in biomaterials and medical devices.

Family, friends and colleagues recall Michael T. Hartzell BY MARK C. PEYKO METRO MONTHLY EDITOR

M

ary Kay Hartzell remembers her son, Michael, as quiet boy whose smile could light up a room. “When he smiled, when he laughed, he made everybody laugh,” she recalled. Ryan Philibin, a friend from childhood, remembers him as fun to be around. “My parents knew his parents before we were even born. I pretty much knew him since we could walk and talk. He lived on the street behind us,” he said. “We did a lot together. When we were younger, we even waited together at the bus stop. I remember we would sit together for the bus and play air hockey at seven in the morning, but we were still laughing. He was just a fun, happy, easygoing guy.” “Basically, he was kind of quiet,” said Michael’s father, Howard. “He played a little bit of football in eighth grade. He played basketball in the youth league at the Y. And he attempted a little bit of golf, but not overly involved in [that] too much.” Howard and Mary Kay Hartzell said they were surprised when their son announced his decision to go into law enforcement. “He never really talked to us about his plans,” Howard Hartzell said. He said Michael attended Youngstown State University for a time, but ultimately chose to enter the police academy in Niles. It was 10 years ago this month that Youngstown Police Officer Michael T. Hartzell was killed while running the license plate of a suspicious vehicle in downtown Youngstown. Family, friends and colleagues recently spoke with the Metro Monthly about Michael’s life, legacy and the memorial scholarship that bears his name. “I can remember it clear as day,” said Philibin. “I was still single at the time. I was teaching and I can remember my mom calling early in the morning.” Philibin said he was in “complete disbelief ” when he learned his childhood friend had been killed. “The fact that it was just so sudden and out of the blue made it that much more difficult to deal with, and knowing that he was in his mid-twenties and had his whole life ahead of him made it very difficult,” he said. “I tell you, I woke up that morning when it was going on and I was shocked,” said David Olsavsky. “I think it had to do with the reality of when was the last time something like that happened?” Olsavsky worked in Youngstown Municipal Court as a probation officer and bailiff at the time. He said he frequently ran into the young police officer while Hartzell was tending to police business in the courts. The pastor of St. Patrick’s Church, the Rev. Ed Noga, who serves as a chaplain

MICHAEL T. HARTZELL with the Youngstown Police Department, was on call the morning Hartzell died. “I was on duty that day, so I spent the better part of that morning and quite a bit of the afternoon just at the family’s house,” he said. “The house was just loaded. I met all kinds of people. The house was just loaded with people all day long.” “It was a highly emotional day for the whole community because an officer had been killed,” Noga said. “Everybody who worked that day was on extra adrenalin, on heightened pitch looking for [the suspect].” Earlier, police had been investigating a shooting outside the Casaloma Gardens where Donell J. Rowe, 25, was injured during an argument. Hartzell was the first officer to arrive at the bar following the shooting, according to reports. Hartzell and the shooting suspect, Mar-

tin L. Koliser Jr., 30, later crossed paths in downtown Youngstown in the early morning hours of April 29. At 2:19 a.m., Hartzell saw a suspicious vehicle, a gray Lincoln Continental, stopped at a red light in front of his cruiser near the intersection of West Federal and Chestnut streets. While Hartzell was running the plate, Koliser exited his vehicle and shot the Youngstown police officer. Koliser fled the state, but was later apprehended in Florida following a multiagency manhunt that spanned 1,100 miles. Koliser was brought back to Ohio where he was tried and found guilty in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court of killing Hartzell and trying to kill Rowe. In 2005, while on death row, he committed suicide. Mary Kay Hartzell quietly recounted the night she lost her eldest son. “We were in

bed. We were sleeping and the phone rang. And it was the hospital. And they said that we needed to come to the hospital. And all I kept saying is, ‘Is Mike alright? Is Mike alright?’ And they kept saying, ‘You need to come to the hospital.’ ” Searching for answers, Mary Kay pressed the caller. “I said, ‘Is Steph with him?’ ... I kept saying, ‘Is Steph with him?’ And the nurse said, ‘Who is Steph?’ “She’s his fiancee. Did you call Stephanie?’ And she said, ‘No, your name is on the list of names to call first. And I said, ‘O.K.’ And they said, ‘This is St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and you need to get here as soon as possible.’ “ “So, I woke Howie and called Steph right away and went down there. And still, I had no clue, I just thought he got hurt.” Mary Kay said when she, her husband and Stephanie arrived at the hospital, “there were policemen everywhere.” “One of the police officers, a captain, was Capt. Robert Kane. He was a family friend. I’ve known him since, well, I went to grade school with him. We went all through St. Pat’s together. He was just a couple years older than me. He was walking up toward me. He said, ‘Mary Kay, I’m sorry. I’m just so sorry.’ And I said – we called him Bebop – I said, Beeb, ‘Is he O.K.? Is he O.K.?’ He couldn’t tell me. Finally, the light came on when I saw all the police officers and they were all crying.” “They took us in a room and we were all by ourselves. And then Chief Bush was there. And they told us that he was dead on arrival. And they wouldn’t let us see him because he was too bad. And they didn’t want us to remember him with the gunshot wounds. So then we just started calling family. Our son, Kevin, was at Ohio State at the time in college. We had to call him, because I didn’t want him to hear about it on the news, on the radio.” Michael T. Hartzell – Badge #1085 – was 26 years old and a three-year veteran of the city’s police force. “I’ll never forget it, never,” said Mary Kay Hartzell. “I can’t believe that it’s going to be ten years.” Michael Hartzell’s decision to become a police officer surprised his family because it appeared to come out of nowhere. His mother, in particular, was apprehensive. Her father, a Youngstown police officer, had died while on duty. “My dad had a stroke and left my mom with four girls at the age of 48. She raised four girls all by herself. And it’s a hard life.” “I did not want him to do it,” Mary Kay recalled in a quiet voice. “And I always said, ‘I would never marry a policeman and I did not want my children to be policemen.’ And he made a liar out of me,” SEE HARTZELL, PAGE 9

HARTZELL, FROM PAGE 8 said Mary Kay, laughing at the memory. “Everyone said, ‘It’s in his blood’ and I said, ‘I guess it is.’ ” Despite her reservations, Mary Kay didn’t challenge her son’s decision. “I knew that’s what he wanted.” Howard said they later learned that when Michael was a sophomore, he wrote a paper where his stated goals were to “be a policeman and own a farm or some property with a dog.” “Although he didn’t get the property or a farm – one day, out of the blue, he said: ‘I’m going to the police academy,’ ” Howard recalled. “That was kind of a shock, but the idea was, go do what you feel you’re going to be happy doing.” Howard said that prior to becoming a police officer, his son served as a volunteer firefighter with the Cardinal Joint Fire District and was “totally involved in giving to the community.” He said Michael’s passion for fire fighting sometimes resulted in Austintown police cautioning his son to observe the speed limit, even though he was responding to a call. “He wanted to be the first one there and on that truck,” Howard said. When Michael was working as a volunteer firefighter and paramedic in Canfield, Mary Kay said her son was haunted by a crime that traumatized him. “Michael was involved in the case in Canfield where a mother drowned her two young children in a bathtub. Michael was one of the firefighters, paramedics, that went into that house. And he was just devastated. I’m not sure if Michael was on the police force yet. I think he was still at the police academy. And that was his first, I think that was his first scene.” “They brought counselors in, they brought grief people in. And Mike went because he was devastated. He kept saying to me, ‘Mom, how could a mother kill her babies? How could a mother?’ And I said, ‘Mike, she was sick. She was sick.’ I said, ‘mentally, something snapped.’ I said, ‘I don’t know what the answers are.’ “I think that was the first time he saw children die. He had to get them out of the bathtub and take them in the ambulance.” Despite experiencing that tragedy, Hartzell continued to pursue a career as a police officer. “Yes, he did. Yes, he did,” his mother quietly recalled. “And I said, Michael, why don’t you just – and I don’t mean just stay as a fireman?” And he said, ‘Mom, I want to be a police officer.’ “He said, ‘I’m going to do both.’ And I went, ‘alright – as long as you’re happy in doing [that] with your life. That’s all that counts.” “His mom’s side of the family has a history here (at St. Pat’s), said Rev. Noga. “I would see them, periodically, not really knowing their son was in the Police Department, although she may have told me. I would see them here and they still come. They’re still here for various events.” Noga, who’s volunteered as a chaplain for 20 years, has counseled the victims of crime as well as police officers needing release from the incredible stresses of the job.

Recipients of the Michael T. Hartzell Scholarship were honored at a luncheon last fall in YSU’s Kilcawley Center. From the left: Marc Ruse, Derek McLaughlin, YSU President Cynthia E. Anderson, Howard and Mary Kay Hartzell, Olivia Bolender and Daniel Farinelli. Other scholarship recipients not pictured include Faith Wilson, Julia Kirchner, Tanner Ewing, Tim Roddy, Donna Rendziniak, Taylor Monroe, Sierra Spotleson, Ryan Shimko, Kimberly Bennett, and Carly Magnuson.

The day Michael Hartzell died, both worlds flooded together. “The police officers were just as overwhelmed emotionally as the family. Especially those he worked with,” Noga said. “They needed counseling, they needed help,” Mary Kay Hartzell said. “It was their brother who died. Not a blood relative, but they are brothers.” “I wasn’t a cop, but I was a corrections officer and probation officer. It’s a brotherhood. It’s a job that everyone thinks they understand . . . but we’re kind of a lonely force,” Olsavsky said. “Back then, we had pagers and I had a flashing light on my pager,” Noga said. “I went to the phone, I think Detective Kane was on the phone. He said, ‘We have an officer down and he died and it was Mike Hartzell’ and [have gave] the family’s address.” “I was kind of caught in this triangle,” Noga said. “I was doing this as a chaplain. I was on call that had to do with a family that had a history here – not in my history – a history here with St. Pat’s. When I see them [today] at church, usually they’re here at midnight Mass. I mean it is something, cause I’m sure she thinks every day about that whole thing. I’m sure he does, too, the dad ... so that kind of added to all this. I just spent time at the house. There’s nothing you can say, there’s nothing you can really say at all.” Since that tragic night, some good has come out of an unbearable event. Last fall the memorial scholarship that bears Michael’s name, awarded its 66th scholarship and the scholarship fund surpassed $250,000. The annual golf tournament that’s the primary funding mechanism for the scholarship allows family, friends, colleagues and well-wishers to remember Hartzell and ensure his legacy. A midsummer motorcycle run and next month’s “Michael T. Hartzell Rugby Classic” also contribute to the celebration of Michael’s life. The golf tournament is the chief funding vehicle for the memorial scholarship, and the monies raised are the modest, but steady, contributions of everyday people. Al-

though the tournament has consistent corporate sponsorship, the scholarship has no large benefactors. “We just basically solicit a corporate sponsor for $500,” said Howard Hartzell. He said the tournament has had as few as four corporate sponsors, but in recent years, eight and 10 corporate sponsors have been the norm. “To be able to sustain that number of corporate sponsors is truly amazing. We don’t really ask the corporate sponsors why. I don’t think we really need to,” Howard said. The idea for the memorial tournament was proposed to the Hartzell family about a month after Michael’s funeral. “They approached me or they approached Mary Kay and I a little hesitantly, knowing the situation and they asked, ‘Is it too soon to approach you about this?’ And I said, ‘of course not,’ ”Howard said. Howard Hartzell said the idea for the scholarship reached back even farther, pretty close to the day Michael died. “I guess the next day, there had been a group of fellas that had been playing golf at Countryside. Chip Olenick was the owner of it.” He said then Youngstown Police Chief Bob Bush, Dan Rivers of WKBN, Olenick, and another unnamed police officer said, ‘We should do something.’ And one of them said, ‘We should do a golf outing to raise funds for a scholarship.’ It wasn’t long after that, someone called, I think it was Chief Bush. He asked if I would like to get involved. Being a golfer, and, once he told me what it was all about, I said, sure, I’d love to participate and be part of the golf outing.” Mary Kay said she didn’t attend any of the early organizational meetings for the golf tournament, although she later played in it. “I never went to the meetings. That was Howie’s baby. That’s how Howie handled it. And that was a good thing for him. He needed that. I’ve always played in the golf outings, but I’ve just been going to the meetings and helping out the past couple of years.” “I was at the first (tournament) and that one was still pretty raw, recalled Olsavsky.

“The first one, it was still pretty tender, but I think it [the healing] even started then. Absolutely, even to this day. Communally, everyone remembers a good person, a good memory.” “At the outing, you get to talk to people that knew him when he was little, that worked with him – all kinds of different people. It’s really good to talk and remember him,” added Philibin. He said it didn’t surprise him that the scholarship has been able to raise so much money. “The people who are organizing it – between Mike’s dad and friends and family – they do a really nice job with everything. I guess it really doesn’t surprise me that they were able to raise so much money for it.” “They put a lot of energy into it, but I know his dad, especially. He walks around with a smile on his face the whole time – just like Michael would have – very happy that there’s that many people are still out there willing to come and support him even though it’s been that long.” This year’s golf outing occurs Sunday, July 28 at Knoll Run Golf Course in Lowellville. Visit http://mhartzell-charity-golf. org/ for more information. Catherine Cala, Director of Development at YSU, said The Michael T. Hartzell Golf Outing raises between $20,000 to $28,000 per year for the scholarship. Since being established in 2004, the scholarship has awarded over $60,000 to more than 66 students. “With the way college prices are going sky high, it gets more and more difficult for your everyday kid to be able to go to school. ... I think it’s a great way to honor Michael, plus help out some younger kids in the process to help them to get where they want to be,” said Philibin. Mary Kay added, “It’s heartwarming. It’s great to see these young people – I call them kids – that we can give them money to help toward the big expense of a college education. And they are just so thankful. And a lot of them, I know their fathers or their mothers. Two of the students, their father was a police officer in Canfield. I worked with him and he died in a parachute accident. Bob Magnuson. And two of his children got Mike’s scholarship. It just bought back memories of seeing Bob and working with their father. And they were just so appreciative. And so you get to meet so many people and Mike’s name does live on. And we don’t, I, personally, don’t want Michael to be forgotten. I know in our hearts and in our lives he won’t, but I don’t want the community to forget.” About the scholarship – The Michael T. Hartzell Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to six YSU full time students who have attained a minimum grade point average of 2.5. The awards give special consideration to graduates of Austintown Fitch High School; students majoring in criminal justice; students who are children of police officers currently serving the city of Youngstown; students who are children of officers currently serving the police or sheriff’s departments in the tri-county area (Mahoning, Columbiana, or Trumbull counties); and YSU students who are enrolled in the YSU Police Academy Program.

Youngstown C.C. taste on April 20 to benefit Special Olympics

M

arch came roaring in with a number of fine beer and wine tastings, and April is looking to be just as exciting. Before we get started, I want to give everyone a quick heads-up on three events coming in April. On Saturday, April 20, the Youngstown Country Club is hosting a wine taste for the local Special Olympics program. For information, contact Jan Grasso at 330744-8411, ext. 125. On Saturday, April 27, the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center is hosting a fundraising wine taste at their beautiful center. Contact the Center at 330-301-0019 or 330-385-6250 for more details. At 4 p.m. Sunday, April 28, Michael Alberini’s Restaurant is having their April Funk Diamond wine taste. Fifty wines along with gourmet tapas from Chef Steve Zurkey’s kitchen will be available, and a live funk band will start at 5:30 p.m. For tickets, call 330-965-2524. This month, I attended a special dinner tasting at the Springfield Grille featuring Colorado beers. Our first entrée was the Big Sky Aspen Pie, a tasty flatbread pizza sprinkled with crispy pork belly, summer squash, fontina cheese, and ale-charred tomatoes. This dish was paired to a glass of Yeti Great Divide Imperial Stout. Deep brown in color with rich caramel and toffee flavors, it paired nicely with the Aspen pie. Our next offering was Rocky Mountain Spring Rolls filled with roasted poblano peppers, avocado, and grilled corn. Light and crispy, they were paired to a glass of Great Divide Denver Pale Ale. Light in style with bright golden colors, this crisp brew was just right with the crunchy rolls. Our next dish was a heaping bowl of Bison Mac’n’Ale. Hazed and Infuzed Amber Ale is folded into macaroni smothered in a blend of five cheeses and topped with the Grille’s homemade bison chili. Bolder Beers Hazed and Infuzed Amber Ale was a perfect choice for this hearty dish. Cold conditioned with crisp hoppy flavors, it worked very well with the bison mac and ale. Colorado lamb chops with carmelized chipolinni onions was presented for our main course with a glass of Flashback India Brown Ale. This India-style brown ale has distinctive hops and citrus flavors that are very refreshing. It proved to be delicious with the rich and tasty lamb. Our dessert course was a huge Grand Junction Molten Lava Brownie served piping hot with warm fudge and homemade banana ice cream. Our beer was a Bavarian-style wheat beer from Boulder Beer Company. The Sweaty Betty Wheat was light golden in color with banana and clove aromas. It was very refreshing with the molten lava brownie. I think the Springfield Grille did an out-

The

Wine Guy By John Webster standing job with this tasting, and I look forward to their next beer tasting. On March 7, I attended the eighth annual wine and beer taste benefit for the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown HIV/ AIDS Ministry. This event is sponsored by the Youngstown Area Grocers Association and the Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce. This event has grown im-

mensely since it started eight years ago. Kirk Gray from Mr. D’s prepared a lovely selection of food for everyone. Trays of antipasto with imported meats and cheeses, penne alla vodka, chicken marsala, crab

cakes and sliced turkey and pork roast were just a few of the many dishes offered to go with several tables of wine and beer selections. My first wine sampling was a glass of 2011 Castle Rock Chardonnay from the Columbia Valley of Washington. At $9.99 a bottle, this refreshing Chardonnay is hard to beat. Crisp clean citrus fruit flavors paired nicely with the fabulous crab cakes. A red that really stood out was the 2011 Chalone Pinot Noir from Monterey County. Bright berry and herb-infused flavors gave way to a crisp full finish that was delicious with the chicken marsala. For a change of pace, I grabbed a glass of 312 Urban Wheat Ale. Light and hoppy with a spicy finish, it was delicious with the pasta salad. I want to thank the sponsors of this event for a chance to try some interesting beer and wines with outstanding food. If

you haven’t attended one of these events, set some time aside next March, and I hope to see you there. At local store tastings, I found a number of unique wines for people looking for wine at a reasonable price. A white that I really liked was the Mason Cellars 2011 Three Pairs Pinot Gris from California. At under $12 a bottle, this is just the answer for upcoming barbecue dining. Bright pear and citrus flavors make this a great choice for chicken or fish hot off the grill. Another unique white wine was the 2011 Evolucio Dry Furmint Tokaj from Hungary. Round, slightly off-dry fruit flavors lead to a crisp clean finish that should be nice with summer-style salads. A red that really stood out was the 2010 Cameron Hughes Lot 292 Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. With full-bodied dark fruit flavors, this red just screams for prime rib or chops. I’d like to announce to my readers that a new wine bar has opened in the Mahoning Valley at the former Five Points Wine Bar location at 9065 Springfield Road in Poland. Vincent’s Vine Bar has been open less than a month. If you’re looking for a great wine experience, please give Vincent’s a try. I stopped in to check them out on a Saturday night and was greeted by managers Mitchell Capps and Randy Anzevino. They got me situated at the bar with a bowl of their signature wedding soup and a bottle of Wente Brothers 2011 Morning Fog Chardonnay. Vincent’s features a full menu with weekly specials along with live entertainment. I was pleased to see local musician Stan Miller come through the door prepared to give everyone an evening of great music. Stan plays at some of the area’s greatest night spots and will be a welcome addition at Vincent’s. As I was finishing my soup, Randy and Mitch brought out a basket of crusty bread from local bakery The Bread Chef, served with seasoned olive oil. It was a marvelous addition to the crisp, tasty Wente Brothers Chardonnay. I’m looking forward to visiting Vincent’s again, and I’ll have a more in-depth report in a future issue. Along with the upcoming events listed earlier, other regular tastings include Springfield Grille’s monthly wine dinner (call the restaurant for date); Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, every Saturday; Wine Styles, every other week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; and Michael Charles Premier Wines on Elm Road, second Saturday tasting. If your restaurant, shop or charity event is having an upcoming wine tasting, please email me a month in advance at jmwineguy@gmail.com.

The program under the baton of Dr. Hae-Jong Lee will be accompanied by a select chamber orchestra, brass quartet and organ (Kathryn Miller). It will also feature several vocal soloists. The Dana Chorale will open the program from the balcony with two very contrasting motets by Anton Bruckner. The opening piece, “Ecce sacerdos” (Behold a great priest) is a more dramatic one accompanied by three trombones and organ. The second motet, “Tota pulchra es” (Thou art all fair) is a much more meditative one. The University Chorus will take over the concert with two selections. “Children’s Letter to God” by G. M. Shearer will be the first. It presents five short consecutive songs, which are based on texts children may write to God. The Chorus will continue to perform a medley of “Phantom of the Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber. As the Dana Chorale takes the stage again, they will present two more songs. The first will be “Take it from Figure ‘O’. This song is a vocal arrangement of the overture to Mozart’s opera “Marriage of Figaro.” The added comical texts will provide plenty of smiles to the audience. The next selection by the Dana Chorale is “An Irish Airman” by Jonny Priano. Jonny Priano is a graduate conducting student of the Dana School of Music. He has published a few of his choral compositions with the Alfred Publishing Co. “An Irish Airman” is a new composition describing an emotional complexity of facing an imminent death. The Symphonic Choir—the combined chorus–will continue to sing the centerpiece of the concert, “Utrecht Te Deum” by G. F. Handel. ”Utrecht Te Deum” was written to celebrate the Peace of Utrecht in 1713. It was Handel’s first commission from the British royal family. It was also his first major sacred work to English texts. The Dana Chamber Orchestra will accompany this 10-movement work. Finally the concert will conclude with a majestic hymn arrangement, “When In Our Music God Is Glorified” accompanied by brass quartet, timpani, and organ. A free-will donation will be accepted. 8 p.m. Free.
