VALLEY UPDATE

Preservation of 5,522 acres in 2012 included farm, Trumbull MetroParks

W

orking with park systems, communities, farmers and other landowners, the nonprofit Western Reserve Land Conservancy permanently preserved another 5,522 acres in 2012, helped create a record number of county land banks and expanded its footprint with two mergers. It was the second-largest preserved acreage total in the Land Conservancy’s seven-year history, just two acres short of the record figure posted in 2011. The Land Conservancy, which permanently protects natural lands, working farmlands, urban lands and coastal lands in northern Ohio, has now preserved a total of 474 properties and 34,441 acres in the region. “This was perhaps our biggest year ever when we take into account everything we were able to accomplish as an organization – the preservation of more than 5,500 acres of land, the amazing work Jim Rokakis and our Thriving Communities Institute has done in Ohio’s urban areas, mergers with two more outstanding land trusts in Lake and Columbiana counties and the opening of our new economically and environmentally responsible home,” said Rich Cochran, the Land Conservancy’s president and chief executive officer. DEVELOPMENTS IN 2012 ◆ The Land Conservancy helped Lake Metroparks preserve an approximately two-mile stretch of Lake Erie beaches and bluffs in Lake County for expansion of Lake Erie Bluffs Park in Perry Township. The park system’s acquisition of a 350-acre tract from the Land Conservancy will create one of the longest sections of publicly accessible shoreline in Ohio, where 85 percent of all Lake Erie coastal property is privately owned. The acquisition links the existing 140-acre park to a third parcel the park system expects to acquire. Cochran said Lake Erie Bluffs is a “nationally significant” preserve that will attract visitors and benefit the local economy. ◆ In Erie County, the Land Conservancy, in cooperation with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, helped preserve two Kelleys Island parcels containing globally imperiled Great Lakes Alvar Ecosystem and a rare mature red cedar forest. The Land Conservancy worked with the Kelleys Island Park District Recreation Board to help the village acquire the 59-acre HuntleyBeatty Preserve and the 18.5-acre Quinn Preserve. About one-third of Kelleys Island is now permanently protected from development. ◆ In Trumbull County, the Land Conservancy played a key role in a project that increased the total acreage in the Trumbull County MetroParks system by 40 percent. The Land Conservancy secured funding for the purchase of a 458-acre parcel in northern Trumbull County and arranged for its transfer to the park system. The property, which is in Bloomfield Township and adjacent to the state’s Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area, contains more than three linear miles of tributaries to the State Scenic Grand River and includes a portion of the Western Reserve Greenway. ◆ In Hudson, the Western Reserve Land Conservancy partnered with Metro Parks, Serving Summit County and the city of Hudson to permanently preserve 293 acres.

The Western Reserve Land Conservancy preserved 5,522 acres in 2012, including Huntley Quarry on Kellys Island in Erie County. County Youth Development Center property, will become a county park. ◆ In Portage County, the Land Conservancy partnered with the city of Streetsboro to protect a 116-acre parcel, one containing environmentally sensitive wetlands. The property, which was owned by Verna M. Beck, is in a flood-prone area off state Route 303. The city intends to turn it into a passive park with hiking trails. ◆ In Trumbull County, the Land Conservancy worked with the Miller family on conservation easements that will preserve 2,702 acres of very productive farmland on 14 separate blocks of property. Scott Hill, the Land Conservancy’s eastern field director, said the Millers are “widely respected members of the farming community not only in Ohio but across the country.” The recording of the Miller easements means that if you drive east on state Route 87 from state Route 11 you will pass massive blocks of farmland on both sides of the road that are permanently protected – and will be for generations to come. It was the second-largest conservation project ever completed by the Land Conservancy, topped only by a 3,100-acre preservation agreement in 2011. ◆ The Land Conservancy also helped permanently protect the remaining 50 acres of a Stark County farm that has been in the family since the 1850s. The family donated a conservation easement on the heavily wooded property, which is along state Route 21 near Canal Fulton. ◆ In the western part of its service area, the Land Conservancy worked with landowner Maple Lawn Farm to preserve 200 acres south central Huron County. The property was permanently preserved through the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Clean Ohio Agricultural Easement Purchase Program. Maple Lawn Farm, owned by the Seidel family, is a multi-generational family farm that produces various grain row crops, hogs and beef cattle. The protected property, which is in the Vermilion River watershed, includes approximately 150 acres of active agricultural land and related infrastructure and 25 acres of woodland. The Seidel family is active in the Huron County community. In 2012, the farm hosted a visit by U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs. ◆ The Land Conservancy’s Thriving Communities Institute, headed by Jim Rokakis, increased the number of county land banks in Ohio to 15 and working with Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and local officials to secure more than $120 million in funding for the demolition of vacant and aban-

Last year, seven counties – Lorain, Lake, Portage, Muskingum, Butler, Stark and Summit – established land banks, joining the ranks of those already in place in Lucas, Erie, Cuyahoga, Trumbull, Mahoning, Hamilton, Montgomery and Franklin counties. ◆ In November, more than 200 people attended the second Ohio Land Bank Conference, which was co-hosted by Thriving Communities and the Cuyahoga County Land Bank. ◆ In 2012, Thriving Communities also started working with nationally known researchers, Case Western Reserve University’s Center on Urban Poverty and the Cuyahoga County Land Bank on a study that is expected to statistically prove the link between demolition and a reduction in subsequent foreclosures. ◆ In Summit County, efforts by the Land Conservancy to expand an urban greenway in Akron received a major boost from the state. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources approved grants totaling $26,880 for the purchase of a 2.5-acre property along Adam’s Run, which is in southeast Akron. The award will cover the cost of purchasing the property. The Land Conservancy worked with Lockheed Martin Corp. to help create Haley’s Run, a greenway that connects to Adam’s Run just south of the Goodyear test track. The Land Conservancy is working with local partners to extend the greenway to the Little Cuyahoga River and then to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. ◆ Two local organizations that have been preserving land in northern Ohio for more than two decades have merged with the Land Conservancy. The Waite Hill Land Conservancy, which owns 297 acres in that Lake County village, and the Little Beaver Creek Land Foundation, which holds or co-holds easements on 186 acres in Columbiana County, have joined forces with the Land Conservancy. The mergers became effective Jan. 1. The merger with LBCLF expands the Western Reserve Land Conservancy’s service footprint to 15 counties and adds a new field office in Lisbon.

oungstown State University has been awarded $573,300 from the Ohio Board of Regents to help create a program designed to increase the number and enhance the quality of technology and business professionals in Northeast Ohio. The funding is contingent upon approval by the State of Ohio Controlling Board. In all, the Board of Regents awarded $11 million in Ohio Means Internships and Co-ops grants to 22 universities and colleges across the state as part of Gov. John Kasich’s workforce development strategies to align Ohio’s higher education curriculum with skills that are in demand by Ohio businesses. The universities and colleges will partner with nearly 1,500 employers to provide paid and credited internships and co-ops to their students. The grant to YSU, along with matching funds from business partners and additional funding from YSU, will establish the Program for Internships and Co-Ops in Advanced Manufacturing and Related Industries, or PICAM. PICAM will fund 45 full-time and 62 half-time internships for students in the YSU College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and the YSU Williamson College of Business Administration, as well as students at Eastern Gateway Community College. Student interns will work in advanced manufacturing and related industries throughout the region. Participating employers include AST2, Bruce & Merrilees, Butech Bliss, Dawn Inc., Diebold, First Energy, Gasser, IES Systems Inc., M7 Technologies, Mercury Plastics Inc., MRL—Materials Research Laboratories Inc., Mahoning Valley Manufacturing Coalition, National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education, Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber, the John Zidian Co., Treemen Industries and the Youngstown Business Incubator. “The experience that students gain through internships and co-ops enhances their long-term career opportunities, and it makes them better students,” said Martin Abraham, YSU STEM dean. Abraham said the companies participating in internships and co-ops benefit by including young, innovative minds in their operations, and they have the opportunity to evaluate potential future permanent hires in a no-risk situation. “Enhancing the preparation of our STEM and business students through professional-level, career-related work SEE VALLEY UPDATE, PAGE 7

experience increases the student’s competitive position in the job market and provides companies with entry-level professionals who in the short term can make an immediate contribution and in the long-term strengthen the competitive position of the company,” said Betty Jo Licata, dean of the YSU Williamson College of Business Administration. In addition to the internships, the new program calls for YSU’s STEM and Business colleges to jointly design and implement new courses in professional practice preparation and to host new, semiannual co-op and internship recruiting events on campus. The program also calls for restructuring curricula in accounting, business, finance, industrial systems engineering, management, marketing, mechanical engineering and other disciplines to provide for more professional practice opportunities.

YSU appoints search committee for president The Youngstown State University Board of Trustees last month hired a consultant firm and appointed a committee to assist in the search for a new president. President Cynthia E. Anderson announced in December that she will retire July 1 after three years in office. At a meeting in mid-January, the board voted to hire AGB Search Inc. in Washington, D.C. to help direct the national search for Anderson’s replacement. Trustees also appointed a 17-member YSU Presidential Search Advisory Committee to spearhead the search for a new chief executive. Members of the committee are: YSU trustees Scott Schulick, John Jakubek, Sudershan Garg (chairman), Harry Meshel, Carole Weimer, Leonard Schiavone, Delores Crawford, David Deibel and James Greene; Student Trustees Joshua Prest and Melissa Wasser; former Trustees Eugenia Atkinson and Donald Cagigas; Bege Bowers, retired associate YSU provost; Chet Cooper, professor of Biological Sciences and president of the YSU Academic Senate; YSU graduate and former vice president of National City Bank Carl Nunziato; and Suzanne Fleming, former coordinator of the Northeast Ohio Regional Leadership Task Force, YSU Center for Human Services Development. “There is no more important decision that we will make as trustees than the selection of a university president,” Garg said. “We are confident that our search will elicit much interest from highly qualified candidates across the country, and we look forward to a search that will be comprehensive, transparent and inclusive.” AGB Search and the Search Advisory Committee will create a timetable and a process that will permit the selection of the next president no later that the Board of Trustees’ meeting on June 12, 2013. The committee, no later than May 15, will present to the Board of Trustees, without ranking, no more than five and no less than three candidates determined to be the best qualified. The board will determine which of the candidates to be invited to campus for interviews.

The Mahoning Youngtown Community Action Partnership (MYCAP) is offering free basic tax service to eligible low and moderate income individuals, families and senior citizens. The annual VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program offers free tax preparation assistance to those who need to file local, state and federal taxes, but who can’t afford to pay to have their taxes prepared. Currently MYCAP is seeking volunteers to learn basic tax information for the 2012 tax year and then use this information and the learned skills to process basic tax returns. On-line training is also available at the IRS. gov website through Link and Learn Taxes. “Volunteers do not have to have prior tax preparation knowledge, or accounting skills to help. But, everyone must take either the three training classes in January in a classroom setting at YSU, or through the designated IRS website,” said Francine Jeffries, VITA Administrator for MYCAP. “We provide both options so people may choose the one that best suits them.” Those who complete the training will then be able to assist eligible Mahoning County residents with their taxes on select dates and times in February and March at the MYCAP

County Land Bank launches new website The Mahoning County Land Bank has launched a new website that will provide information, tools and resources for anyone interested in restoring vacant, tax-delinquent land to productive status. Executive Director Debora Flora said the site will provide all the information needed to locate and acquire distressed properties in the county. Land acquisition policies and procedures, as well as application forms, are available at www.MahoningLandBank.com. The site contains links to sites for related organizations such as the Center for Community Progress and the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation.

WWW.METROMONTHLY.NET 7

A valuable resource, said Flora, is the link to the Mahoning County Auditor’s Office where parcel numbers, lot numbers and other pertinent information can be obtained by using the “Property Search” function. After decades of job and population losses, and the foreclosure crisis of recent years, Mahoning County has thousands of forgotten, neglected, debt-laden parcels that decrease neighboring property values and increase maintenance costs for cities, townships and villages. Land banks can acquire these distressed properties and clear the titles that make it more attractive for new owners or users to invest in them. The County Land Bank absorbed the activities of Lien Forward Ohio Regional Council of Governments, which facilitated the transfer of more than 900 vacant properties in Mahoning County to new owners from 2006 to 2012. Mahoning County Land Reutilization Corp., otherwise known as Mahoning County Land Bank, is a nonprofit community improvement corporation whose mission it is to acquire vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent properties and make them productive again. Buyers obtain clear title to the land, not the debts and liens that may have accumulated under the previous owners. Through its Side Lot Program, Mahoning County Land Bank offers empty lots to adjoining property owners.

OPINION Is it time to redevelop or demolish the former Wick Six dealerships?

oungstown’s wealthiest residents once lived on the gently sloping hills leading up from Wick Avenue and the downtown. By 1900, many had settled around Wick Park. They were the city’s first car owners, resulting in the development of the Wick Six dealership cluster on Wick Avenue.

MAHONING VALLEY

Struthers Board of Education to determine ‘next step’ for WKTL Kay Sefcik and Elizabeth Cibulas, two of WKTL’s ethnic programming hosts, attended the Nov. 27 board meeting and said they’re just hoping for the best possible outcome.

BY EMMALEE C. TORISK METRO MONTHLY STAFF WRITERS

A

t the Nov. 27 meeting of the Struthers Board of Education, discussions continued regarding the fate of WKTL 90.7 FM by way of two presentations from interested parties. Tommy Bruno — general manager of WAPS 91.3 FM, or The Summit — spoke first, acknowledging both WKTL’s ethnic programming hosts, many of whom were in attendance, and The Summit’s hundreds of “intensely loyal” area listeners. Approximately three years ago, WKTL began to simulcast programming from The Summit, which is owned by the Akron Public Schools system. Bruno referred to this relationship as “a wonderful cooperation” and one that “makes the . . . community a better place to live.” “We’re deeply committed to this region,” Bruno said. “We feel we enhance the region.” During his presentation, Bruno proposed entering into a public service agreement with the board. WAPS would assume all responsibility for WKTL, and all costs would be reimbursed through a monthly lease, the cost and length of which is still undetermined. WKTL’s volunteer-driven ethnic programming, which now occupies Saturdays, would remain intact, he said. WAPS would also finance the relocation of WKTL’s tower, studios and transmitter to another site in Mahoning County; give the Struthers City School District $30,000 worth of on-air marketing annually; and set aside $15,000 each year to “give to the students,” perhaps by coordinating internships or work experiences with nonprofit organizations. Bruno said WAPS is “very open to negotiating” the specifics of the agreement in any way that the board sees fit. He also mentioned that WAPS recently renewed WKTL’s license for another eight years and now pays all costs to operate the station, including putting “tens of thousands of dollars of equipment in the transmitter room” and compensating a “monthly engineer.” “[There are] a lot of benefits to keeping The Summit here,” Bruno said, addressing the board. “I think we’ve been a good steward. When we came in, [WKTL] was barely on the air. . . .We hope we’re a part of your future. . . . We hope that you’ll stick with us.” A second proposal, titled “WKTL: Community Radio for the Mahoning Valley,” followed Bruno’s presentation. Frank Sole, a 1970 alumnus of Struthers High School, began the presentation by reflecting on WKTL’s “interesting history,” of which he was a part from his sophomore through senior years. Sole,

now an assistant professor in Youngstown State University’s Williamson College of Business Administration, explained that WKTL has “impacted thousands of students” since Sept. 13, 1965 — the noncommercial radio station’s first day on air. “There’s a legacy here,” Sole said. “This is a gem that we need to maintain.” In addition, WAPS’ acquisition of WKTL would allow The Summit to “cover all of northeast Ohio,” he said. Plus, WKTL’s signal, now at 13,500 watts, could “double or triple in size” if the station broadcasts at full capacity, as permitted by its Class B1 license. WAPS has a Class A license and now broadcasts at 2,000 watts, Sole said. “If I was Tommy Bruno, I’d be salivating over this station,” Sole said. “That’s why Tommy Bruno would like to move the tower. . . . He gets three times the footprint once he moves the tower.” Max Grubb, a media consultant with more than 30 years of experience in the electronic media industry, continued, urging the board to “consider restructuring [WKTL] as a community radio station.” WKTL could become a professionally managed, volunteer-based self-sustaining operation with local control and local oversight — and no competition, he said. Sole called WKTL “the last chance the Mahoning Valley has to do something local,” citing the influx of “media owned by somebody else.” If WAPS does acquire WKTL, the best-case scenario would be 50 percent Mahoning Valley content and 50 percent Akron content, he said; in contrast, a local radio station could feature programming that is customizable to the community’s needs and reflective of the area’s diversity.

“We’re looking at it as a problem. Usually, when there’s a problem, there’s a heck of an opportunity,” Sole said. “We really need to carry that legacy forward.. . . . You could end up with WKTL being The Summit of Mahoning County.” Financing for the station could be achieved through membership drives, underwriting, grants and events, Grubb said, and a seven-member advisory board — consisting of a Struthers Board of Education member, four members selected by the Struthers Board of Education and two members selected by WKTL listener membership — would be established. Reinvented as a community radio station, WKTL could be sustainable within a year to 18 months, Grubb said. He said that getting the station to that point “shouldn’t cost the board anything.” Even if it does, it’s because past boards haven’t made the investment, Sole said. “We invest dollars in football teams, in bands,” he said. “Now, we’re talking about it impacting an entire community.” During their respective proposals, both parties agreed that selling the station, as was discussed during the July 17 board meeting, would be unwise at this time. “Stations, newspapers, the business we’re in, they’re not worth what they used to be,” Bruno said. He added that WKTL, as a public asset, would have to go to auction and to the highest bidder, which would likely be an out-of-town religious organization. Sole emphasized that “the worst thing [the board] could do is sell the station” in the current market. “You’d be doing well if you got tens of thousands of dollars for your piece of pa-

per,” he said. “You’ll spend more on your electric bills for the city schools than you’ll get for your piece of paper.” Still, a decision about WKTL could still be a few months off, said Struthers Superintendent Robert Rostan. He emphasized that no timeline exists, but that the board does “need to make a decision sometime in the near future.” “I would suggest that the sale of the station right now is not the number one choice,” Rostan said. “Certainly, that’s probably third now, but the board is probably going to want to get some more information from the groups, and we’ll take it from there.” Rostan said he’s “pretty confident” that this communication will occur prior to the next board meeting. Although he’s not sure that board members will be able to announce a direction, they will likely know “what the next step is,” he said. Overall, both presentations demonstrated “a lot of passion for radio and a lot of concern for our region and our Valley,” Rostan said. “These are folks who have strong backgrounds in radio and frankly understand better than do we the asset that we have,” he said. “They needed to convince our board that it’s an asset, that it is something that we’re holding onto, even while we’ve transitioned from teaching radio classes to hopefully using it in some other way.” Kay Sefcik and Elizabeth Cibulas, two of WKTL’s ethnic programming hosts, attended the Nov. 27 board meeting and said they’re just hoping for the best possible outcome. “They both had excellent points, but, naturally, our personal interest is the ethnic programming on Saturdays,” Sefcik said. “Where do we have the better assurances or guarantees or whatever? . . . That’s what we’re concerned about, but a lot of that still has to be developed.” Cibulas agreed, stating that the station’s future is still very much “up in the air.” “There’s a lot of questions that need to be answered,” she said. “To me, it’s still a grayish area here.” However, as long as Sefcik and Cibulas have a station to broadcast through, they’ll continue to host their respective programs. “I have enough CDs to keep going for another 10 years. I’m serious. She does, too,” Sefcik said, laughing. “A decision’s going to have to be made.”

Angels for Animals taste benefits operations

T

he holidays mark the busiest time for wine tasting events. I’ve found many great affordable and enjoyable wines that I’d like to share with you. Earlier this fall, I attended the launch of Salvatore’s Italian Grill’s new wine list. Five wines were chosen from their new list and paired to an exciting menu from their kitchen. An antipasto and appetizer buffet and mixed green salad (or lentil soup) was paired to a 2010 Sterling Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc from California for the opening course. Bright citrus and melon flavors with a hint of grass on the finish made the Sterling a fine choice for the wide selection of imported meats and cheeses from the buffet table. Jumbo gulf shrimp with fresh lemon risotto and a glass of Salvatore’s own Sonoma County Chardonnay was the next offering. The lemon-tinged risotto was a fantastic partner for the crisp Sonoma Chardonnay. Clean citrus fruit flavors follow through to a finish tinged with a touch of oak, making this inexpensive Chardonnay a fine choice for many offerings from Salvatore’s extensive menu. Pappardelle norcino (roasted pork, wild mushroom with pappardelle pasta in sherry cream sauce) was paired to Salvatore’s house Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County for the dinner’s third course. Textbook Cabernet fruit flavors and a smooth clean finish worked nicely with the rich creamy pasta dish. The fourth wine of the evening was a 2010 “14 Hands” Merlot from Washington State. Salvatore’s delicious Neapolitan chicken with plum tomatoes worked handily with the cool-climate berry and spice-tinged Merlot. Salvatore’s finishing dessert course was a mixed berry torte with yellow custard. A glass of Italy’s Sangue di Guida DOC Frizzante was simply delicious with the berryladen torte. Light medium red in color with off-dry crushed berry and plum flavors, the Sangue di Guida was a perfect finale to a great dinner at Salvatore’s. Another enjoyable event saw Wine and Dine Ohio collaborate with Up a Creek Tavern in Howland for a tasting featuring Buckeye Beverage distributors’ line of wines. Our first wine was a 2011 St. Urbanshof “Urban” Riesling from the Mosel region of Germany. Crisp apple sweet fruit flavors made this delicious Mosel Riesling a perfect choice for Up a Creek’s Greek Pecan Chip Basket appetizer drizzled in balsamic vinegar and crumbled blue cheese. A 2011 Kenneth Volk “Jaybird” Chardonnay was our second white wine of the evening. With no oak aging, only pure Chardonnay stone fruit flavors show through on this delicious stainless-steel fermented Chardonnay. The diners who ordered the “Big Catch” haddock dinner found this combo quite enjoyable. Portugal is the home of our next wine selection, which is currently being offered at

this classic California red blend. Springfield Grille held their

last monthly dinner taste of the year with Gabrielle Leonhard of Gabrielle Collection Wines from Napa Valley, who led us through her stable of handcrafted wines. Cranberry chicken over apple chestnut bisque was paired to Gabrielle’s unique 2005 Vertex Red Cuvee Blend No. 615 from North

Coast fruit for our first entrée.

WINE GUY FROM PAGE 15 pairings don’t get much better than this combo. Our sweet ending course was a flaky baked apple crisp drizzled with red wine and cinnamon marinated golden raisins. A 2009 Gabrielle Pietro Family Vineyards Pinot Noir from Russian River was paired with this decadent dessert. It was a perfect conclusion to a wonderful dinner. One of my favorite destinations during the holiday season is the Angels for Animals Holiday Wine Taste at their Andrews Hall. Great food, delicious wine, and a large crowd in attendance always make for a wonderful evening. All the wines poured were available for sale along with a huge selection of gift sets, with a portion of the funds set aside for Angels for Animals’ daily operations. At $14 a bottle, the Brancott Pinot Noir from Marlborough, New Zealand is hard to beat. They consistently provide a nice bottle of Pinot Noir at a price that is very competitive. Ripe cherry and spice flavors lead to a smooth clean finish, pleasing to nearly every palate. Another favorite of mine is the Raymond “R” Collection Field Blend Red Wine for $14. Ripe berry and red currant flavors and a clean textured finish make this a consistently good wine and a fine choice for holiday get-togethers. I want to thank Diane Less and her great staff for a wonderful evening. Another fine fall wine event was the Splendor in the Glass scholarship fundraiser at Alberini’s Restaurant in Niles. With six wine distributors and two local wineries in attendance pouring their wines and Chookie Alberini’s experienced kitchen staff serving tables of delectable food, this is a must-attend annual affair. Beef Wellington, chicken roulades, ceviche shrimp and trays of antipasto and artisan pizzas just beg to be sampled with a glass of wine. My first pick was the 2009 Carmen Petite Sirah Gran Reserva from Maipo Alto, Chile. Lush, ripe plum and dark fruit flavors give way to a spicy pepper-tinged finish that complemented the fork-tender beef Wellington. For someone looking for a lighter style red give the 2009 Nannicola Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon a try. Food friendly, this red wine offers textbook Cabernet fruit flavors and a textured clean finish. It was delicious with Alberini’s signature lamb lollipops. Thanks to Alberini’s for an enjoyable evening benefiting a good cause. Wine and Dine Ohio is gearing up for our 2013 tasting season. To get on the email list for Wine and Dine Ohio event information, call 330-651-8676 and leave a message, or contact us through the Wine and Dine Ohio website (www.wineanddineohio.com).

Lecture: Music for Warrior Women, Bliss Recital Hall, YSU, Wick Avenue at Spring Street, Youngstown; 330-941-7448. The Dana School of Music will present “Music for Warrior Women” by noted musicologist Kendra Preston Leonard.The music for cinematic male heroes and superheroes, be they set in real history, an alternative reality close to our own, or are from an entirely different universe, all share a number of similar characteristics. Percussion and brass, starting either quietly and growing in volume or starting with a big bang; a short, repeated motif with lots of staccato, suggesting a march or other impressive entrance. But what kinds of music are used for women in leadership roles? How are their skills and powers and the situations in which they must use them aurally signified? Leonard will explore the music for two very different female leaders: Queen Elizabeth I, as depicted in two films directed by Shakur Kapur; and Zoe Washburne of Joss Whedon’s television show “Firefly.” She will discuss the ways in which scoring for female characters in the imaginary past and future requires the use of musical tropes and attributes familiar to modern audiences, yet still evoking different points in history. Leonard is a musicologist whose work focuses on women and music in 20th century America, France and Britain; music and screen history; and music and disability. She is the author of
