Those Were The Days
Roller Coasters
Remember back in our youth when we
couldn’t wait for the annual trip to the “big”
amusement parks. In our area this would usu-
ally mean mostly going north to Cedar Point
or south to King’s Island. Regardless of where
we went the highlight of the trip was always to
ride the fastest, biggest, most terrifying roller
coaster. As the amusement park season opens
lets take a look back at how this thrilling fun
ride began.
The earliest history of roller coaster is at-
tributed to the Russian mountains in the 17th
century. Slides of ice re-enforced with wooden
supports were built down the mountainsides
and enjoyed by the upper class.
There is some dispute as to when and who
actually put this concept on wheels. Some say
the Russians were the frst in 1784 and fea-
tured carriages that undulated over hills within
grooved tracks. Other historians say it was the
French who added wheels to the slides
The frst American roller coaster was not
built at an amusement park or city, but in the
mountains of Pennsylvania. The Mauch Chunk
Switchback Railway, which was more like a
runaway train than a modern coaster, is consid-
ered the forefather of today’s roller coaster.
Previously, 2,322 feet of this railway track
had been used to bring coal directly down the
mountainside. The old track stood idle for a
few months, but in 1873 the railroad re-opened
for business carrying passengers instead of
coal. It was a success and carried over 35,000
passengers per-year.
Le Marcus Thompson’s version of the Switch-
back Railway at Brooklyn’s Coney Island
opened in Spring 1884. This was America’s
frst “Roller Coaster”. It was an instant success
and made the inventor hundreds of dollars per
day, charging riders only 5 cents a ride.



He fashioned his over undulating hills and the
cars slowly (6 mph) rolled down a track six
hundred feet long and ffty feet high.
Roller coasters have come a long way since
those early days. The amusement-park indus-
try has experienced a coaster boom of sorts in
the past 15 years or so. New catapult launching
techniques, hanging-train designs and other
technological developments have opened up a
world of options for designers. In recent years,
designers have introduced coasters that have
you lying fat against the train car so you feel
as if you are fying, and coasters that shoot you
down long stretches of spiraled track. “Fourth
dimension” coasters spin or rotate your seat as
the ride twists, turns and free-falls.
Kingda Ka, at Six Flags, New Jersey is cur-
rently the tallest and fastest steel roller coaster
in the United States, reaching 456 feet and
accelerating up to 128 miles per hour in 3.5
seconds.
We can only imagine what designers will be
able to dream up to thrill us in the next decade.
So whether you prefer to stick to the standard
wooden roller coasters or prefer to be fipped,
swirled and shot off into space...enjoy your
summer thrill ride!

Would you like to visit far away places
but are prohibited by the costs? There is a
way to make those far away destinations
more affordable: home exchanges. With a
home exchange, two homeowners living in
different places agree to swap homes for a
specifc length of time at no charge. There
are some risks to participating in home ex-
changes, but if you are careful, you will re-
ceive free accommodations, with access to a
kitchen, laundry facilities, a backyard and in
some cases, a car. Home exchanges can give
you a much more authentic vacation experi-
ence, too.
One of the easiest ways to facilitate a
home exchange is through an online home
exchange service. This service allows you
to list your home and view listings for a
yearly membership fee. After you sign up,
you have access to listings with photos and
detailed information about other properties
and can post the same information about
your home. You can also browse until you
fnd a suitable partner.
Home exchange services do not arrange
the exchanges for you-they just provide
you the listings. It is entirely up to you to
choose whom you partner with. There are
some steps you can take to reduce the risk
in exchanging homes with a total stranger.
These include:
• Start your search for an exchange part-
ner at least six months in advance. That way,
you will have enough time to fnd the right
one. Get personal references, if at all pos-
sible.
• Check with your insurance agent to see
if your homeowners insurance will cover
exchange visitors. Check with your auto
insurance provider, if you plan on making
your car part of the package.
• After you have found someone, ex-
change detailed information about your-
selves, your home and your expectations.
Exchange lists of what household items and
amenities will be used.
• Discuss any ground rules in advance
and provide emergency contact informa-
tion.
• Make sure you have a printed agree-
ment listing the terms of the exchange and
make sure both parties read and sign it.
There are three popular home exchange
Web sites that provide simple agreements
and exchange guidelines and tips. These
are:
• HomeLink. It has 14,000 members in
over 50 countries and has been in business
for over 50 years. The 12-month online
membership fee is $75. A printed directory
of member listings is available for an extra
$45. Only paid members can contact other
members. Check out www.homelink.org for
complete information.
• Intervac. It has 11,000 listings in 52
countries and has been in business for 50
years. The 12-month membership is $65.
Only paid members can contact other mem-
bers. Check out www.intervac.com for com-
plete information.
• HomeExchange.com. It has 6,000 mem-
bers in 91 destinations. The yearly member-
ship is $50. The site offers a feature the oth-
ers don’t. You don’t have to be a member to
access home listings or to contact members.
In addition to homes, the site also features
yachts, RVs and rentals designated for se-
niors. Check out www.homeexchange.com
for complete information.
Be sure to read all of the information be-
fore you set up an exchange. And remem-
ber, participating in a home exchange is
not without risk. After all, you are dealing
with complete strangers. By participating in
a home exchange, however, you will save
money and get a more authentic vacation
experience.

(Family Features) - With store-
bought tomatoes nearly devoid of
favor, growing your own is the
best way to truly savor the taste
of this vegetable that captures the
essence of summer. But with thou-
sands of varieties available -- from
cherished heirloom types to the
hottest new hybrids -- how do you
narrow your choices?
Ripening time.
If you’re buying seeds to start
your own plants, read catalog de-
scriptions carefully to discover
“days to maturity.” This indicates
approximately how soon you
can expect ripe fruit once you’ve
transplanted seedlings to the gar-
den. Plants sold at garden centers
are often labeled “early,” “midsea-
son,” or “late” to indicate when the
variety should start ripening.
Determinate vs. Indeterminate
Determinate plants stop growing
once the fower buds emerge. Be-
cause of their more restrained size,
many determinate varieties need
no staking or caging, but provid-
ing support can improve the qual-
ity of the fruit. All the fruit ripens
within a relatively short period of
time -- usually about a week to 10
days. This can be a boon if you’re
canning, but for the gardener who
prefers to have a fewer number of
tomatoes over a longer period of
time, indeterminate varieties are a
better choice. The vines continue
to grow and set fruit throughout
the season and won’t quit until the
weather turns too hot or too cold to
sustain fruiting and growth.
How you will use the fruit
When selecting a tomato vari-
ety, keep in mind what you plan
to do with the fruits. There are
varieties suited for just about ev-
ery purpose -- eating fresh, mak-
ing tomato paste, canning, drying
-- even for grooming into a county
fair prizewinner.
Seeds or transplants.
The easiest way to get your to-
mato patch started is to purchase
young plants, also called trans-
plants or starts. You can pick up
plants at garden centers or order
them through catalogs or the In-
ternet.
That said, starting your own
seed gives you an almost endless
list of varieties to choose from, al-
lowing you to get just the type that
will suit your growing conditions
and tastes. Starting seeds gives
you a chance to exercise your
green thumb earlier in the season,
and nurturing plants from seed to
harvest is a rewarding experience.
Plant seeds six to eight weeks
before the last frost date for your
region, and place them under fuo-
rescent lights. Contact a nearby
Extension Service offce or your
local weather service to fnd out
your last spring frost date.
Disease resistance.
By planting tomato varieties
with built-in resistance to diseas-
es, you can have a bit more control
over your garden’s success.
For instance, many tomato va-
rieties are resistant to soil-borne
diseases such as Verticillium and
Fusarium wilts and nematodes.
Most seed catalogs indicate resis-
tance to these diseases by putting
F (Fusarium), V (Verticillium),
N (nematodes) after the variety
name. You’ll also see varieties
with resistance to viruses such
as tomato mosaic virus (T), and
to Alternaria (A), the fungus that
causes early blight.
Talk to a nearby Extension Ser-
vice offce or to other home gar-
deners to fnd out if any tomato
diseases are common in your area.

mation visit http://www.garden.

Frank Lloyd Wright is commonly rec-
ognized as the American’s greatest archi-
tect. He is known world wide for his el-
egant buildings and designs. Among these
is the Louis Penfeld house 15 miles east of
Cleveland in Willoughby Hills, Ohio. The
Penfeld House is one of only a handful of
Wright homes open to overnight guests.
Whether you would like a getaway week-
end or a shared vacation with friends, the en-
tire house, complete with Wright-designed
furniture is yours to enjoy in privacy.
Wright spent more than 70 years creat-
ing designs that revolutionized the art and
architecture of the twentieth century. Many
innovations in today’s buildings are prod-
ucts of his imagination. In all he designed
1141 works - including houses, offces,
churches, schools, libraries, bridges, muse-
ums and many other building types. Of that
total, 532 resulted in completed works, 409
of which still stand.
Unlike other architects, however., he
continued to design private homes while
at the pinnacle of his career. These houses,
which he termed “Usoninas” represent the
culmination of this residential work. Barely
100 were built.
All of the homes were built of readily
available materials and left as unadorned as
possible. Each design was site-specifc to
take advantage of the view and terrain. The
typical foor plan includes small entry ways,
narrow passages, large central freplaces
and foor to ceiling windows. Each home
was tailored to each individual client, which
is why the Penfeld house is unique among
Wright designs.
When Louis Penfeld, a high school art
teacher, and his wife, Pauline, wanted to
build a new house in the early 1950s, he went
straight to the top. At frst glance, it might
have seemed like a pipe dream to commis-
sion world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd
Wright to design the home. But the Pen-
felds read all they could about the architect
they admired, and found that Wright was
designing affordable and elegant houses for
the average American.
Armed with this knowledge, the Pen-
felds corresponded with Wright, ftting
their profle into the architect’s Usonian
vision with one additional card to play
— Penfeld’s height. Standing at 6-feet,
8-inches tall, Penfeld knew he might pique
the interest of the diminutive architect who
was famous for building low-to-the-ground
housing. Wright took the challenge.
If Wright and Penfeld differed in size,
there also was a disparity in their philoso-
phies about budgets. In this case it was the
reverse: Wright thought big, always going
over budget, while Penfeld was conserva-
tive. He stopped building when the house
reached its original budget of $25,000. The
house was fnished, but the furnishings and
some of the extra cabinetry originally de-
signed by Wright were never made.
This is where Paul Penfeld comes in.
One of two Penfeld children who grew up in
the house, Paul has since inherited the entire
property, which has been in the family since
1876. He worked for years to restore a cot-
Living the “WRIGHT” Way
Wright designed furniture as well as
homes. His designs are evident through-
out the Penfeld home.

tage and farmhouse on the property, while
maintaining the tree farm here. He left res-
toration of the Wright home for last.
Over a period of four years, Paul worked
on renovation of the home at a cost of more
than $100,000. Penfeld fnished the inside
of the house with the original design as his
guide, right down to the furnishings. He
now makes the home available to share
with the public as a rental home.
Wright’s creative mind was not con-
fned to architecture. He also designed
furniture, fabrics, art glass, lamps, dinner-
ware, silver, linens and graphic arts. In ad-
dition, he was a prolifc writer, an educator
and a philosopher. Many of his furniture
designs can be seen at the
Penfeld home.
Many experts have said
that Wright freed Americans
from the Victorian “boxes”
of the 19th century and
helped create the open plan
with rooms that fowed and
opened out to each other.
By changing architec-
ture and changing the way
America lived, Wright may
have had an even more pro-
found effect. As Wright said,
“Whether people are fully
conscious of this or not, they
actually derive countenance
and sustenance from the ‘at-
mosphere’ of the things they
live in or with. They are rooted in them
just as a plant is in the soil in which it is
planted.”

My wife Jane, sufered a stroke on October 15th, 2009. She was admited
to the hospital where she sufered two more strokes leaving her paralyzed on
the left side with difculty swallowing and speaking. We chose Golden Living
Center-Lima for her therapy needs.
Prior to admiting, Jane was concerned that she would never leave the nurs-
ing home. The therapy team evaluated Jane and told her they saw no reason
why she would not be able to go home. With the care and dedication of the
Golden Living Center staf, Jane began to see steady results.
During Jane’s stay, I was admited to the hospital for a quadruple bypass.
Impressed with Jane’s care, I too, went to Golden Living Center for the cardiac
rehab knowing they would help me make a speedy return home so that I could be
prepared to take care of my Jane.
Jane’s return home would not have been possible without the therapy team
at Golden Living Center. The therapy team gave Jane the confdence she needed
to work hard for her return home. We were given the option of having therapy at
the hospital or at Golden Living Center.
We are very happy we chose the Golden Living Center-Lima and it is a choice
that we will not regret.

Making your dollar
travel farther
The recession has given many
of us grounds to tighten up our
spending habits. Non-necessities
have been limited, and luxuries—
such as travel abroad—have been
taken off the table. But perhaps
now that some time has passed
since the new economic realities
have set in, you might be look-
ing for affordable means to take
in the sights and sounds of a for-
eign culture. If this is the case,
a well-planned itinerary and a
few rules-of-thumb can help you
maximize your money overseas.
Find where the dollar
holds up better
Not all currencies perform
alike against the dollar. Despite
recent gains, the greenback con-
tinues to lag behind the pound
and the euro. However, exchange
rates are favorable in other parts
of the world. Mexico, Argentina,
Hungary and South Africa are
just a few places where the value
of the dollar remains strong. Do
your research and fnd a location
that matches your travel priorities
and your budget. Keep in mind
that costs for comparable goods
and services could be higher or
lower depending on the country.
Look for cheaper
housing options
If your son or daughter is the
one who will be spending time
abroad, a “homestay”—or resid-
ing with a local family—may be
a good housing option. Along
with a room, this arrangement
can provide meals and other
amenities. As they travel around,
students will fnd youth hostels
provide cost-effective accommo-
dations (and usually cooking fa-
cilities) for a reasonable nightly
fee.
Bed and Breakfasts, Elderho-
stels, and local hotels may also
prove less expensive than the
rates at large-chain hotels. With
the plethora of online review
sites now available, you can re-
search these spots in advance to
ensure they’re to your taste.
Eating “smart”
The cost of restaurant meals
can quickly add up when you
travel overseas. Look for alterna-
tive options. Local grocery stores
and open-air markets can provide
a source of less expensive food to
eat on the go, and they’re a great
introduction into the culture and
cuisine of an area.
When you visit restaurants, try
to fnd establishments that cater
to the local population. Their
prices tend to be lower than
tourist-oriented restaurants. A
bottle of house wine to go with
a meal can often be a better deal
than individual drinks. And in
many places, it’s cheaper if you
order a beer, cocktail or even a
cappuccino while standing at the
bar rather than sitting at a table.
Keep in mind that as customs
dictate, tipping may or may not
be necessary.
Getting around
For the time you spend in large
cities, it will probably be more
cost-effective to use public trans-
portation (and walk a lot) rather
than renting a car, which can in-
cur parking costs. If you travel
by rail, study your options to fnd
the best deals for your itinerary.
For air travel, use web resourc-
es or inquire with a good travel
agent to fnd the best bargains.
Other cost-saving measures
•Students or others planning
an extended stay should explore
whether purchasing a local cell
phone or buying a phone card
offers cheaper connections back
home.
•Cash from ATMs usually
offers the best exchange rate.
Check with your bank or credit
card company to fnd out what
fees apply to your transactions.
•Look for passes to events and
museums to get the best deals.
Many destinations offer pack-
age deals that make it more cost-
effective to tour favorite attrac-
tions.

Grandparents start
underground movement
Grandparents are rocking tour-
ism, causing a seismic shift in
where kids go for fun.
Baby Boomers have had a dra-
matic impact on our culture at each
phase of their existence. Now they
are starting to retire giving them
time to spoil their grandkids further
fueling a trend underway – grand-
parents traveling with grandkids.
And where do they want to take
them? Their favorite places of
course.
“Here we call it an underground
movement,” chuckled Eric Evans,
owner of Ohio Caverns. “Many re-
member us as that nostalgic family
trip that sparked conversation in the
old station wagon on the way home.
Well, the people retiring were the
people in the back seat of that car
and now they want to return with
their grandkids.”
But these aren’t grandparents’
Ohio Caverns!
New attractions at the old cav-
erns are an authentic mining sluice,
huge pavilion, playground and
more spanning the 35-acre park.
In addition, caverns that had been
closed for more than 70 years were
opened back up for what is known
as the historic tour, featuring “The
Giant’s Coffn” and “The Palace of
Natural Art.”
“The above ground entertain-
ment now enhances our subter-
ranean adventures,” Said Evans.
“Many come to have family re-
unions, bring scout troops or host
other outings large and small.”
A thrill for many is the 80-foot
long and 13-foot high wooden min-
ing sluice.
Visitors pan for real gem stones
and minerals. There are about a
dozen types of ornamental stones
commonly found, including emer-
alds and (fools) gold. The sluice
consists of a wooden tower and
wooden fume. The water is piped
out of the tower, descending
through staggered planks of narrow
chutes. Along its course, wooden
plates slide into grooves at the sides
of the channel just like those used
to recover minerals in mining op-
erations.
“This is a very popular activity
for groups as miners, both young
and young-at-heart, learn how to pan
for these specimens, identify what
they fnd and take home a nice col-
lection,” said Eric Evans, manager
of Ohio Caverns. “Entertaining and
educational, panning for treasure is
fun for all ages and is a great way
to pass the time for family members
who are unable or unwilling to go
on the cavern tours.”
Even with the newer hits, old-
time favorites never cease to amaze
visitors.
Perhaps the most renown is the
Crystal King – the largest and most
perfectly formed pure white crys-
tal stalactite found in any cave. It
is nearly fve feet long after thou-
sands of years of growth. Other
unique stalactites are called helac-
tites. These resemble straws hang-
ing from the ceiling but somehow
defed gravity, bending and twisting
in weird directions. One of the more
intriguing formations is the “Old
Town Pump,” which looks just like
it sounds, right down to the drip-
ping water.
One of the many beauties of
these caverns is its wide-array of
color. In addition to black and white
– stalactites, stalagmites, columns
and other formations come in a va-
riety of color that include hues of
yellow, orange, red, blue and purple.
The climax of the guided tour is the
“Palace of The Gods” and its color-
ful display of translucent crystals.
Another rare claim is that Ohio
Caverns features the nation’s only
caverns where dual or double for-
mations are found. These unique
formations consist of red iron oxide
tipped off with milky white calcium
carbonate. It is a mystery as to why
the two minerals remain distinctly
separate, refusing to blend colors.
Rock collecting has surged in
popularity. A demand that Ohio
Caverns is pleased to meet. It has
gained a reputation as a premier
rock shop in the U.S. Whether one is
a seasoned geologist or an amateur
collector, Ohio Caverns has pieces
ranging from a dollar to $10,000 in
value.
Ohio Caverns has machines to
crack or saw stones like geodes and
smooth them to perfection. Stones
are offered in many shapes and
sizes, polished or raw. Some people
like buying the raw stone and pol-
ishing it at home. Others seek the
fnished mantle piece or high-dollar
Pakistan Onyx stemware.
“We pride ourselves on the
unique, hard-to-fnd gifts and of
course Ohio Caverns and State of
Ohio souvenirs, including antique
signs,” said Evans. “Teachers enjoy
the store because they discover, of-
ten after a feld trip to the caverns,
that there is great variety and sup-
port at the shop for classroom tools,
lessons, books, DVDs, mineral
samples and the “fossil digs.”
Always growing and never
ceasing to amaze, Ohio Caverns is
a natural wonder that continues to
mystify visitors 112 years after its
accidental discovery. It is a thrill-
ing spectacle that has been dubbed
one of the six best caves in the U.S.,
as well as America’s most colorful
caverns.
Daily tours are offered, spanning
one hour, covering one mile, reach-
ing a depth of 103 feet and tempera-
ture of 54 degrees. Many primitive
forms of sea life are fossilized into
the ceiling from the Devonian peri-
od and Paleozoic Era. There is also
a 1 ½ hour historic tour that can be
requested but requires a group of
10 or more people to register in ad-
vance. The regular tour costs $14/
adult and $8 per child 5-12 years-
old. The historic tour costs $19.50/
adult and $14 per child 5-12 years-
old. Value passes and special group
and school rates are available. Ohio
Caverns is located at 2210 East
State Route 245 in West Liberty.

The long, cold win-
ter of snow, ice and bitter
temperatures has ended
for everyone. Spring is
here.
With the change of sea-
sons, the thoughts of high
school students across
northwest and west central
Ohio turnes to the magi-
cal moment that ends the
school year...PROM.
For guys, the prom
means asking the “girl of
your dreams” for the date.
Renting the tux, buying
fowers and paying for
other prom necissities can
be very costly.
Likewise for the girls,
the prom is about purchas-
ing the dress, purse, shoes
and all the necessary ac-
cessories that makes them
“queen for the evening, at
least in the eyes of their
date.
The prom, like many
high school dances, can
end in “shattered dreams”
and “broken promises”...
memoires that can last a
lifetime.
Some os us cannot re-
fect on those memories
because the girl said “no”
when asked to attend the
prom. I am one of them.
I never went to the junior/
senior prom.
But for those that did
attend the prom, at least
they have memories that
can be shared with other.
The fun with classmates,
after dinner prom, and the
senior trip.
