9 Date book serves as vacation-time capsule

EDITORIAL PUBLISHER / EDITOR Mark C. Peyko

Years ago my Aunt Irma brought out a dusty artifact – the multi-decade date book that she kept from 1957 up until a few years before she died. It listed significant events – birthdays, weddings, funerals and graduations. But the date book and her collection of maps also served as a time capsule for family vacations. – By Mark C. Peyko

11 Ryan joins crowded Democratic field The songs blasting from the loudspeakers as the crowd gathered for Rep. Tim Ryan’s April 6 presidential kickoff rally seemed to set the tone for the day. Billy Joel’s “Allentown” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” echoed up and down West Federal Street as about 500 people gathered in front of the stage in downtown Youngstown. Ryan opened by speaking about his own family’s experience with Black Monday and the closing of Delphi Packard, mixing working-class themes with a call to bridge partisan divides. – By Sean T. Posey

Library staffer to serve patrons in social services, mental-health areas

T

he Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County has hired Shari Buchmann as its new Community Support Specialist, a part-time position that will enable the Library to better serve patrons with needs in social service and mental health areas. The new position is part of a $27,600 grant the Library received from the Gerald M. Kline Family Foundation of San Ramon, Calif., for a pilot program in this field. The Gerald M. Kline Family Foundation, based in Emeryville, Calif., has provided over $10 million to philanthropic causes since its inception. It is particularly interested in public library initiatives that provide innovative services to the communities they serve. “We are grateful to the Gerald M. Kline Foundation for providing a grant which enables the library to offer to our patrons a very different kind of assistance. This project aims to provide a way to connect people needing social services with resources that can help,” said Aimee Fifarek, Public Library executive director. She noted that some patrons who frequent the Library may be struggling with issues beyond library service expertise, such as homelessness, addictions, depression and more. “With this new position, we will not only have the expertise needed to help our patrons, but we will also be able to train our staff to better serve patrons with social and emotional needs,” said Fifarek. Buchmann, a licensed social worker, has been in the field of social work for 21 years. She received a bachelor of arts degree from Youngstown State University in 1998. She most recently has been employed by the Area Agency on Aging for the last 13 years, and has past work experience in the foster care system and nursing homes. She started her job at the Public Library on May 13. She is also self-employed with Power of Potential Training and Advocacy Center. The Center provides continuing education units to social workers, counselors and marriage/family therapists. The Center also provides advocacy services for the special needs population, particularly parents and special needs children. Staff will provide Buchmann with referrals from patrons who seek assistance. “My See LIBRARY, Page 7

YSU breaks ground for Cafaro Family Field

T

he Youngstown State University community and the Cafaro family gathered on Monday, May 20 to officially break ground for the new Cafaro Family Field on the north side of campus. The new athletic field will be located immediately north of the Madison Avenue Expressway on the east side Elm Street and across from Cafaro House residence hall at YSU. The $2.5-million field for student intramural and club sports is funded in part through a $1.5 million gift from the Cafaro family. The gift is part of the $100 million “We See Tomorrow” fundraising campaign, the largest in the university’s history. The athletic field will be used for a variety of student recreational activities, including soccer, lacrosse and ultimate Frisbee and is expected to be open in time for the start of the fall semester in August. The new facility is intended to help serve the university’s growing enrollment, especially students living on campus.

The $2.5-million field for student intramural and club sports is funded in part through a $1.5 million gift from the Cafaro family. Overall enrollment was up this year for the third time in the last four years and all residence halls and apartments were again at capacity with nearly 2,300 students. “With so many more students on campus, we want to make sure that we provide an environment that meets the needs of our students, including recreation,” said Joy Pokabla Byers, YSU director of Campus Recreation. The Cafaro Foundation is a charitable entity established in memory of William M. Cafaro and his wife, Alyce, by their children, Anthony M. Cafaro, John J. Cafaro and Flora M. Cafaro. For more than a half century, William, Alyce and brother John A. Cafaro supported churches, schools, hospitals and other charitable causes. The Cafaro Company is one of the nation’s largest

privately held real estate development firms, having developed more than 30 million square feet of property in 14 states. The Cafaros’ support for YSU dates to the 1960s. William M. Cafaro was a key advocate for Youngstown University becoming a state public university in 1968. He also was one of the founders and one of the first board members of the YSU Foundation. William’s son, Anthony Sr., is a 1968 graduate and currently a member of the board of the YSU Foundation. Anthony’s wife, Phyllis, served on the campaign cabinet for the YSU Centennial Capital Campaign. Anthony and Phyllis’ sons, Anthony Jr. and William, a 1992 YSU graduate, now lead the company. John J. Cafaro and his wife, Jan, have also been ardent supporters of the university; their daughter, Capri Cafaro, currently serves on the YSU Board of Trustees.

Wendell August partners with NFL

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns—two gridiron greats, and ultimate rivals, can now unite as the first two teams to be launched by giftware manufacturer, Wendell August Forge. Wendell August Forge is partnering with the NFL (celebrating its 100th season) to create a series of one-of-a-kind, American-made, hand-forged metal products, and they’re starting with their closest neighbors, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. “We’ve been forging metal for nearly 100 years, and this is the most significant opportunity for our company to date,â€? says Wendell August Forge President Christian Werner.

Wendell August Forge is launching a collection of personalized Steelers and Browns keepsake gifts, including keychains, bag tags and coasters in aluminum and bronze. Additional home dĂŠcor, entertaining accessories and ornaments will launch throughout the summer and fall. “There’s a fan in every household throughout the country,â€? said Werner. “As these fans choose to support our NFL collection, they will be helping to preserve and create new jobs in America.â€?

Date book pulls together threads of family vacations BY MARK C. PEYKO METRO MONTHLY EDITOR

Y

ears ago my Aunt Irma brought out a dusty artifact – the multi-decade date book that she kept from 1957 up until a few years before she died. Although the date book was stamped “1957,” my aunt’s ingenuity and thrift allowed her to use the book for over 30 years. She simply noted the date of the event and penciled in the year. The book listed significant events – birthdays, weddings, funerals and graduations. To my surprise, she also listed my family’s vacations to Wildwood, N.J. from the mid1960s to the early 1990s. My aunt’s date book and pre-computer “database” were located in a spare bedroom that she had converted to a home office. Among its contents were road maps, vacation literature and hand-written routings to the Jersey Shore. Her directions documented routing changes for the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the growth of my immediate family. Routings considered side trips along the way – visits to see my mom’s bachelor uncles in Maryland and Bicentennial-era stops in Philadelphia. There were routes that led to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry and others that included the Walt Whitman Bridge in Philadelphia. In later years, after my parents built their house next door to my aunt, the route scheduling became a pre-vacation ritual. In the era of GPS and Google Maps, this ritual seems unnecessary, but this was the early 1970s. In retrospect, the ritual probably was less out of necessity and more about my aunt being vicariously involved in the planning of the trips. My aunt’s collection of maps and routings (and alternate routings) serve as vacation time capsules. They reflected the changes in travel from northeastern Ohio to Wildwood. They documented the realignment of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in 1968. They included routing to our uncles’ farm in Maryland, and from the farm to the shore. Also included were reverse routings from Wildwood to Philadelphia to Ohio. Among the boxes were maps for the 1964 New York World’s Fair and random literature for Atlantic City casinos. Aunt Irma and Uncle Sam occasionally joined us in Wildwood, so there were brochures and letters from the Beach Waves, my aunt’s favorite motel on the shore.

Above: a Beach Waves postcard. At right: Chris and Mark Peyko in Wildwood, 1965.

Wildwood gets a lot of Midwest vacation traffic, but the distance influences travel planning and trip frequency. Friends in New Jersey and Philadelphia have the luxury of day trips, but travelers from western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan typically make Wildwood an annual visit. The extra travel time allows for side trips along the way. Around the time of the U.S. Bicentennial, my family toured the Philadelphia Mint and Independence Hall. Because our annual side visit to the farm lasted from my childhood to early adolescence, I still have a distorted understanding of the time it takes to get to the shore. Our family trips to Wildwood – as documented by my aunt’s date book – appear below. Some years include general memo-

ries, more than specific incidents, because I was so young. For clarity and interest, I’ve grouped the date book into specific eras. My aunt's date book serves as a parallel record of our Wildwood travels. Her travelogue also recorded the growth of my immediate family. Like most childhood memories, these trips provide snapshots of specific incidents, even if the exact year is not recalled. Although it’s nearly impossible to provide detailed information on individual trips, some broader themes emerge. My aunt’s original notes are in italics. My notations appear in brackets. 1964: June 13 (in Wildwood) [mom, dad, older brother and me].

1965: June 5 (in Wildwood) [mom, dad, older brother, baby brother! and me]. 1966: June 9-16 (in Wildwood) [mom, dad, older brother, younger brother and me]. 1967: Aug. 15 (P.M. to Wildwood) [We left late and my dad drove all night. The crew included my mom, dad, older brother, younger brother, a new baby sister! and me.]. 1968: July 28 (to Wildwood) [same as 1967: the nuclear six]. The vacations between 1964 and 1966 include my family’s formative years. Like many shore-bound families, our vacations straddled multiple eras. In the early years, my parents transported bulky strollers and even a portable playpen. As our numbers increased, vehicles grew correspondingly larger. We evolved from a compact Volkswagen Beetle to a palatial Microbus that struggled up the hills of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Along with strollers, my mom also packed a train case – a portable pharmacy complete with motion-sickness pills, Solarcaine and a St. Christopher medal. During this era, the trunk also reflected the chronology of the trip. Besides luggage, my dad packed boxes (and coffee cans) filled with the cookies that my mother had baked for her bachelor uncles. The cookies were out of the way, but within easy reach. My dad worked like Mission Control. The cookies were like parts of a rocket that were shed during a space mission. Since my dad was a teacher, summers were open. Consequently, we were all over the map with vacations. I remember June vacations in the early years, but we also visited the shore in July, August and September. Personally, I preferred the shore in peak season – not too early, not too late, but right in the middle. We stayed at our great aunt’s cottage far from the hotel district, so our vacation rituals were different than most in the resort. Because my dad is a creature of habit, we developed routines that continued for decades. During childhood, we started the long-standing tradition of parking on E. Aster Road (across from the Pan Am, an upscale mid-century modern hotel with a spinning globe sign) during daytime trips to the beach. Our nighttime boardwalk visits were more challenging. It took years to perfect strategic parking for the boardwalk. Finding the sweet spot took time and experimentation. We couldn’t be too high or too low on the boardwalk. We needed to be near age-appropriate attractions. And our needs changed as our See VACATION, Page 10

VACATION, From Page 9 family evolved. The boardwalk ramp for the child-centric Casino Arcade was an important early entry point. The age-appropriate rides were all lights and movement. Even the gentle slope of the entrance was designed to accommodate little legs. Although we almost never went on the Casino Arcade rides, I remember this now-lost portal with great affection. Would we head north or south? My parents usually deliberated for a moment at the edge of the boardwalk. For the kids, it didn’t matter. We were bursting with excitement. 1973: June 12 (to Wildwood) [same as 1967: the nuclear six]. 1974: July 16 (to Maryland, later to Wildwood) [same as 1967: the nuclear six]. 1975: July 10 to Maryland, later to Wildwood. [same as 1967: the nuclear six]. This era reflected our growing independence as children. We could now all ride the same rides, despite an eight-year gap from youngest to oldest. The iconic Wipe Out – a giant Fiberglas sliding board – was a watershed ride. Initially, the three boys raced down the slick blue-and-white lanes. When our sister – the youngest – finally joined us, there was unarticulated joy on my mom and dad’s faces. It was also the heyday of AM radio, which paralleled the growing independence of the children. As the songs of summer blasted from boardwalk shops, automobiles and transistor radios, music became a way to bookmark our trips to Wildwood. 1978: July 31 (to Wildwood) [Sketchy details here. The kids are older and start driving separately. Some miss vacations altogether. My older brother, a recent high-school graduate, didn’t travel with us in 1978.]. 1983: Aug. 31 (to Wildwood). The late 1970s and early 80s were a transitional time. The kids often drove to the shore separately. Work, college and adult responsibilities led to missed vacations, but someone always returned to Ohio with tightly wrapped hoagies and fudge from the boardwalk. 1986: June 29 [to Wildwood for 2 weeks]. 1990: Ella and Biff [mom and dad] to Wildwood on Sept. 17. 1991: Sept. 2-9 Wildwood [The last trip with my nuclear family. My mom died later that year.]. Besides my older brother’s wedding that fall, it was the last time all of us traveled anywhere as a family. [2007: Labor Day weekend. I visited Wildwood for the first time since my mom died. Although many of the classic motels were gone, the water was warm and the weather was beautiful. A few years later, all four siblings managed to meet on the boardwalk for one night. I became the uncle who bought ice cream for everyone – just like our uncles had done before me.

Ryan joins crowded field, talks of bridging the divide BY SEAN T. POSEY

The sounds of ‘Allentown’ and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days’ echoed up and down West Federal Street as about 500 people gathered in front of the stage in downtown Youngstown.

T

he songs blasting from the loudspeakers as the crowd gathered for U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan’s April 6 presidential kickoff rally seemed to set the tone for the day. The sounds of Billy Joel’s “Allentown” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and “The Rising” echoed up and down West Federal Street as about 500 people gathered in front of the stage in downtown Youngstown. Ryan of Howland, D-13th, opened by speaking about his own family’s experience with Black Monday and the closing of Delphi Packard, mixing working-class themes with a call to bridge partisan divides. “If we are not united, we are not going to be able to fix these structural problems that we have in the United States,” Ryan said. “And I’m running for president first and foremost to try and bring this country back together again.” It was Ryan’s first event since he formally announced his candidacy April 4 on “The View.” “We stand here on April 6, 2019, a divided country. And we’ve been divided a long time, and that division has prevented us from being able to be the best we can possibly be,” he said. Ryan spoke out against what he called political efforts to divide Americans, and he hewed to a more moderate and conciliatory tone that is becoming a centerpiece of his national persona. “We have politicians and leaders in America today that want to divide us. They want to put us in one box or another. You can’t be for business and labor. You can’t be for border security and immigration reform. You can’t be for cities and rural America. You can’t be for the North and the South. You can’t be for men and for women. I’m tired of having to choose. I want us to come together as a country.” He also pledged to return a national focus to the Midwest. “The flyover states are my states. The flyover states are your states,” Ryan said, using rhetoric similar to that of another Democratic candidate for president, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. “And the flyover states are going to start governing in the United States of America again.” The candidate repeatedly referenced values and character-building experiences he absorbed from adults while growing up in

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan speaks during his April 6 kickoff rally in downtown Youngstown

Niles. “It was a community effort to raise a kid. And that’s what we need to get back to in the United States.” He pledged to bring those values to Washington if elected. “And just maybe, just maybe, the person who can help heal these wounds is a working class-kid from a working-class family from a working-class community who will go work his rear-end off for the American people.” Youngstown and Warren mayors Tito Brown and Doug Franklin spoke at the rally. “I know how much he cares for veterans, for working families, for the disabled, for those who don’t have healthcare,” Franklin said. “That’s Tim Ryan’s commitment to us.” Akron Mayor Daniel Horrigan also spoke and vowed to support Ryan. David Green, president of UAW Local 112,

attended the rally and voiced his support for Ryan. Green is co-chairman of the Drive It Home Ohio campaign. “We launched this Drive It Home campaign with Tim’s help,” he said. “About 48 percent of the working people in Trumbull County are eligible for government assistance. These are people who have jobs but can still get free cheese. Tim knows that, and we’ve talked about it. I know he has a plan to get workers’ wages up and get people back to work.” Renee Sylvester of Youngstown lined up early for the rally with her two children. “I’ve never been to a rally before,” she said as she laughed. “I’m mainly here because I wanted to know what he had to say about changing things for the better. We need something positive.” Rick Vernal of Beaver Township is already

supporting Ryan. “It’s exciting that someone local is running for president of the United States,” he said. “And I think Tim is somewhere in the middle where people on both sides could vote for him.” Vernal thinks that Ryan could win over voters who “voted against the system” in 2016. The day after the April 6 rally, Ryan appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” where he outlined his desire to “create an industrial policy in the United States.” Ryan said China is outpacing the U.S. in additive manufacturing, in the emerging electric car market, as well as in the production of solar panels. He called for public-private partnerships in order to drive investment to “distressed communities” in deindustrialized areas. “There’s been no plan to help those communities at all,” Ryan said. “That’s going to be a priority for me, and we’re going to get it done.” Ryan’s candidacy contains both promise and potential pitfalls, said David Cohen, a professor of political science at the University of Akron. “He’s been speaking about economic issues and issues that affect manufacturing pretty much his whole career, especially considering the district that he’s represented since 2003. And I think this has real resonance in 2020.” However, candidates Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden occupy a similar ideological space, Cohen explained, which could complicate Ryan’s quest for the nomination. In order to be included in the primary debates in June, he must obtain at least 1 percent support in at least three different polls or receive donations from 65,000 individual donors with at least 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 U.S. states. But finances might be a bigger challenge, according to Cohen. Ryan ranked outside of the top 15 candidates when fundraising numbers for the first quarter were released on April 15. “Raising enough money, at this point, to be able to ramp up a staff in places like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina is going to be one of his biggest challenges.”

Protect skin from sun, especially in summer FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL

N

early 5 million people are treated for skin cancer each year in the United States. Skin cancer can be serious, expensive, and sometimes even deadly. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be prevented. Ultraviolet (UV) rays—from the sun or from artificial sources like tanning beds—are known to cause skin cancer. Damage from exposure to UV rays builds up over time, so sun protection should start at an early age.

Stay sun-safe outdoors ■ Protect your family and yourself from skin cancer. Stay sun-safe outdoors and discourage indoor and outdoor tanning. ■ Seek shade, especially during midday hours. This includes 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., March through October. Umbrellas, trees, or other shelters can provide relief from the sun. ■ Be extra careful around surfaces that reflect the sun’s rays, like sand, water, and concrete. ■ Wear sun-protection gear like a hat with a wide brim and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes. ■ Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk of cataracts and other eye problems. Wrap-around sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays offer the best protection by blocking UV rays from the side. ■ Wear a long-sleeved shirt and pants or a long skirt for additional protection. If that’s not practical, try wearing a T-shirt or a beach cover-up. ■ Apply a thick layer of broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher at least 15 minutes before going outside, even on cloudy or overcast days. Reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours and after swimming, sweating, or toweling off.

Limit UV exposure: discourage tanning ■ UV rays are strongest from late morning through mid-afternoon; near the equator; during summer months; and at high altitudes. ■ Remember that sunburns and skin damage can occur even on cloudy or overcast days. ■ Indoor and outdoor tanning often begin in the teen years and continue into adulthood. Don’t wait to teach your children about the dangers of tanning. Children may be more receptive than teens, so start the conversation early.

Indoor tanning ■ Exposes users to intense levels of UV rays, a known cause of cancer. ■ Does not offer protection against future sunburns. A “base tan” is actually a sign of skin damage. ■ Indoor tanning accidents and burns send more than 3,000 people to the emergency room each year. ■ Many states restrict the use of indoor tanning by minors. There’s no such thing as a safe tan.

Until recently, the Aperol Spritz enjoyed little name recognition in the U.S. All of that changed in 2018 after the Campari Group began a massive marketing blitz to promote the Italian effervescent cocktail to the American public. Dubbed the drink of summer by The New York Times in 2018, DIFFORDS GUIDE it has helped change the nature of aperitif hour. Aperol (made from gentian, rhubarb, cinchona and other herbs and plants) is a popular bitter liqueur that emerged in Italy around 1919. The Aperol Spritz was first mass-marketed in the 1990s and is now a global phenomenon. 3 ounces prosecco or another sparkling wine 2 ounces aperol 1 ounce soda water Add ingredients to a balloon glass and stir with ice. Garnish with a slice of orange.

Blood and Sand

Named for the 1922 bullfighting film starring silent-film heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, the Blood and Sand is one of the rare drinks in the cocktail lexicon that effectively utilizes Scotch. The key to making LIQUOR.COM this a great drink is to use a Scotch that isn’t too smoky. Fresh-squeezed orange juice is also a must for this cocktail. ¾ ounce Scotch ¾ ounce cherry herring ¾ ounce sweet vermouth ¾ ounce orange juice Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Southside

Actual gin became a rare luxury during the days of Prohibition. Much of what was produced fell under the heading of “bathtub gin,” which usually consisted of grain alcohol mixed with juniper oil and glycerin. The poor taste of this concoction necessitated that it be mixed in a cocktail. The Southside is thought to have emerged with the gangster set on Chicago’s Southside during the Roaring Twenties. 1½ ounces gin ¾ ounce lemon juice ½ ounce simple syrup Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with mint sprigs. – Compiled by Sean T. Posey

RECIPE CONTRIBUTED BY STACEY ADGER

Brown sugar and cumin give the ribs a sweet and smoky flavor. Perfect right out of the oven, the ribs are ready to eat. But try putting the slabs on the grill for five or 10 minutes. This allows the dry-rub coating to caramelize. Recipe coats two rib slabs.

Divide the salad among four plates and top each with the reserved walnut and feta cheese before serving. Serves 4.

DRY-RUB MIXTURE 8 tablespoons tightly packed dark brown sugar 3 tablespoons kosher salt 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon regular or smoked paprika ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon ground black pepper ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper ½ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning® ½ teaspoon onion salt ½ teaspoon char seasoning ½ teaspoon cumin zest of one lime

PREPARATION Combine dry-rub ingredients in a mediumsize bowl and mix well. Remove the thin membrane on back of rib slabs. (The ribs will be more tender and cook better.) Place each slab on heavy-duty aluminum foil with foil’s dull side up. Work rub into both sides of each slab. Wrap slabs in foil. Refrigerate for at least one hour, but six to eight hours works best. Preheat oven to 250. Place foil-wrapped ribs on baking sheets and bake for 2½ hours. When done, slice ribs into one or two bones. If preparing more slabs, keep the spice ratio the same. Recipe coats two slabs.
