50 50 C C Tea Time for Mothers Day
By Christine A. Holilday Herald Writer SyLVaNIa- It was tea time for ladies of all ages at the special Mother’s Day tea at Sweet Shalom Tea Room on Erie Street in Sylvania. Fiveyear-old Shelby Brandes was enjoying the special luncheon with her mom Tonya, aunt Larissa Ziesmer and cousin Lacie Lymond. In another room, 95-year-old Juanita Hoppe was sipping a variety of teas with her daughter Monica Harsnett, who was visiting from Indianapolis. The theme for the weekend’s Mother’s Day celebration was Tea and Comfort: A Pampering Par-Tea, and everything on the menu was meant to provide quiet contentment. Those who attended one of two sittings on Friday and Saturday were seated at their special places, marked by personalized name cards. a variety of teas, from Black Teas (Darjeeling, apricot and Selah—a tea with orange and sweet ginger), Oolong Tea (Pomegranate), Green Teas (Citron Green and Cherry Blossom) and an Herbal Infusion (appropriately called Mother’s Bouquet) were available during the course of the “afternoon Bill of Fare.” Fresh flowers on the serving trays and lovely china dishes and cups set the tone. There was no rushing during this meal, just plenty of time for good conversation and relaxation, including the services of a masseuse, who visited each table to give mini-shoulder massages. It just isn’t tea without scones, and guests weren’t disappointed. Cream scones were first on the menu, followed by a chicken and dumpling soup, and then a selection of tea sandwiches, including bread and butter sandwiches, cucumber, pimento cheese, and a bit of macaroni and cheese. Fudge brownies with chocolate ganache and old fashioned lemon bars weren’t the dessert— that was pineapple upside down cake—but they were equally delicious. Tonya Brandes was celebrating Mother’s Day with her 5-year-old daughter Shelby and both agreed it was fun to stop on a busy Saturday and relax for a few hours. Shelby wasn’t sure she would like the tea, but she was looking forward to the dainty foods that would be served.

SyLVaNIaat approximately 5:20 p.m. on May 7, officers from the Sylvania Police Division responded to a call of a man with a weapon acting irrational in a hallway to the Sylvania Gardens apartment complex, 6632 Maplewood Drive. Upon contact with the suspect in the doorway to his apartment, the suspect fled inside with a handgun and barricaded himself.

Sylvania area project “Potting Pretty” unveils on May 16
SyLVaNIa- In 2009, Sylvania took Northwest Ohio by storm with its Bench Project “Sittin Pretty in Sylvania.” With the success of the bench project and the need to keep art and artists visible, the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce, City of Sylvania, Sylvania Township and the Sylvania Community Arts Commission is unveiling “Potting Pretty in Sylvania.” The Chamber will place 67 decorated wood and ceramic indoor/outdoor pots in downtown Sylvania beginning on May 16 and they will remain there until May 23. Several area artisans, designers and craftsmen designed such notable pots as “Can you See the Light,” “Growth Spurt,” “Sonic,” “We Are on a Roll,” “Silly Circles” and “Midnight in the Garden.” The pots will be available for viewing from May 16 and a gala unveiling announcing the best of show judging is scheduled on Thursday, May 19. additionally, local landscapers are designing floral creations for some of the pots and many of the growers will be on hand on May 19 from 4-8 p.m. with flowers for sale during the event. Several Sylvania schools, their art teachers and students were involved in the project. Sylvania Northview and Southview, Timberstone Junior High School and Central, Highland, Hillview, Sylvan and Whiteford Elementary Schools participated, as did St. Ursula academy. People will be able to vote for their favorite pot art until May 30 and the people’s choice award will be announced in early June. The artistic merit awards, juried by several local artists, will be given at a gala unveiling and an auction of any unsold pots will be done on May 19. awards of $300, $200 and $100 will be given to first, second and third place in both the people’s choice and artistic merit categories. Many of the pots will go on to permanent homes at local businesses and residences after May

Chemical agents were introduced to the suspect’s apartment but were also unsuccessful. During attempted entry to the apartment, the suspect fired upon officers again and officers returned fire. The suspect was discovered deceased inside the apartment. The suspect’s name is being withheld until notification of next of kin. BCI was requested to invistigate the incident and will be the lead agency.

Mrs. Harnsett appreciated the slow pace of the luncheon. “I like the idea of eating slowly and enjoying conversation. Most of us, especially mothers, don’t have that luxury very often, so it was nice to sit and share some time with my mom.” as it turns out, the two original owners of Sweet Shalom were mothers who were busy raising children but who found quiet time when they enjoyed tea together. Through the years, Sara Velasquez and Chris Kruse became tea enthusiasts and they opened their own tea room, in a house that had originally been a small farm house. They use the three main floor rooms for tea parlors, hall, and powder room, and the large porch and gazebo are the perfect place for It was Shelby Brandes’ first grown-up tea party, and enjoying tea outdoors. she was careful with the beautiful teacup. a small gift shop offers books about the history of tea and the correct way to make tea, and a variety of tea-related items. The women have brought in their husbands (Baldemar Velasquez and Roger Kruse) and Chris’ son Ethan as partners into the business. Ethan’s wife Krissy and Sara’s daughter Elizabeth Julian are the chefs, Chris’ daughter Heather helps every week, and Grandma Kruse is the bookkeeper. It clearly is a family business. Sweet Shalom is located at 8216 Erie Street in Sylvania. Reservations are required for the Friday and Saturday teas and can be made by calling 419 297-9919.

The Mating Game
A really interesting event is coming up, and I want to tell you about it. On May 18 Randy Brown, the curator of Wood County Historical Center & Museum, will be presenting the program “Dating Through The Decades”. The presentation will be at 7 p.m. at Sylvania Heritage Center, 5717 N. Main Street, hosted by the Sylvania Area Historical Society. Now this is not about carbon dating old relics. This will be an enjoyable look at dating rituals and icons over the years. Most of us have a totally modern view of how to meet prospective mates and can’t even imagine the formality of calling cards (that doesn’t mean phone cards!). We can’t even wrap our heads around the idea of chaperons and parental supervision of the Victorian-era. Even if we can identify with the increased freedom of women of the Depression, we women of today wouldn’t dream of throwing on our flapper dresses, using the secret signal of three knocks on the speak-easy door, and trying to meet men in the clandestine, smoky environment of the forbidden watering hole. Oh wait, maybe some of that still works…. We probably remember the 1950s sock-hops and a handful of poodle skirts might still reside in a few Sylvania closets or attics. The drive-ins with their mayhem of socializing at the snack bars are perhaps part of our personal history but we can’t deny how social rituals have certainly changed over the years. Those early days are a world away from modern-day speed dating and online dating sites. I remember as a teenager attending a youth group dance that had a futuristic twist. We each filled out little questionnaires when we arrived, of personal

Lourdes, Valentine Theatre announce new partnership
SYLVANIASince its inception in 1984, Lourdes’ Theater Vision program has provided curriculum-based theater arts education to more than half a million students throughout the region. Each season, a wide selection of performances is presented for school groups and the public by professional touring companies that specialize in children’s theater. To date, Theater Vision has been exclusively housed in Lourdes’ 850-seat Franciscan Center Theatre. Beginning this October, Season 27 of Theater Vision will be presented through a new partnership between Lourdes and the Valentine Theatre in Toledo. Audience members will be able to see Theater Vision productions and experience Theater Vision Days at the Valentine Theatre as well as in the Franciscan Theatre. “We are very excited to partner with the Valentine Theatre, which enjoys a great reputation for presenting outstanding theater programming in our area,” Jule Horn, Theater Vision director, said. “By providing two venues for our events, we will be able to make professional theater for young people more accessible to school groups and the general public.” The partnership allows Theater Vision to present approximately 40% of its Season 27 productions at the Valentine, with the remaining 60% in the Franciscan Center Theatre. More importantly, some Theater Vision productions being presented at the Valentine will offer special Saturday matinees for the general public. Theater Vision’s Season 27 line-up includes the following shows: October 25 – ImaginOcean – Franciscan Center Theatre November 2 & 3– We the People – Franciscan Center Theatre November 7 – The Yellow Brick Road – Franciscan Center Theatre January 13-- Skippyjon Jones – Franciscan Center Theatre January 14 (Sat. matinee) Skippyjon Jones – Valentine Theatre January 25 & 26 – Treasured Eric Carle – Franciscan Center Theatre February 17 & 18 (Sat. matinee) – Fancy Nancy – Valentine Theatre February 23 – Magic School Bus – Franciscan Center Theatre March 5 – I Have a Dream: The Life and Times of Martin Luther King, Jr. – Franciscan Center Theatre March 28 – The Taming of the Shrew – Valentine Theatre April 18 – Mufaro’s Beautiful

characteristics and desirable traits in a potential partner. Things like sense of humor, patience, intelligence, good looks, etc. The answers were recorded on little cards that were fed into something called a computer. Halfway through the evening, each of us was presented with our ‘match’ and the potential of romance beckoned. We girls excitedly opened up our envelopes, nervously giggling as we looked around for the dream guy we now were supposed to dance with. The name of my match was unfamiliar to me, and upon meeting him, I realized he had no desired characteristics. I suppose mine were not on his list either. I don’t remember what happened after that, but now, looking back, I have a feeling the whole thing was a hoax, a gimmick, just something to make the evening a bit different. Come to think of it, back then, if there even was such a thing as a computer, it would have taken up the whole building we were in. How could that dating service company have transported it to the event? Then again, maybe I had witnessed an early precursor to modern online dating services. Perhaps, as a gangly, awkward teenaged girl, I had been given a glimpse into the future. And the future is now! So come learn more about dating through the decades and have a giggle or two! The meeting is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. For more info or questions visit or call 419-318-9632.

Daughters – Valentine Theatre April 20 & 21 (Sat. matinee) – Rainbow Fish – Valentine Theatre The Valentine Theatre is a 115-year-old 901-seat facility operated by the Toledo Cultural Arts Center, Inc.

More than 120 antique automobiles are already registered for this popular spring event offering a unique view of the automobiles of days gone by. The Sauder Village show requires every car to be older than 1942. Thus the cars at this show will be from a much earlier time period than most car shows, with some dating back to the early 1900s. Throughout the day guests will be able to look at the cars and visit with car owners. Many exhibitors plan to give demonstrations and will be available to answer questions about these unique vehicles. Throughout the afternoon, guests will have an opportunity to take a ride in an antique car and there will be a special drawing for one adult to win a chance to drive a car. In addition to the display of antique cars, guests will certainly want to plan time to experience the past in the Historic Village. Guests of all ages will enjoy visiting with costumed guides and working craftsmen in more than 40 historic homes, shops and community buildings. Visitors can learn about the daily lives of the Native Americans in the award-winning Natives and Newcomers area and visit places like the Witmer-Roth home, jail and Holdeman Church at Pioneer Settlement. Guests with young children are encouraged to stop by Little Pioneers Homestead to gather eggs and “milk” the fiberglass cow and everyone should plan to take a ride on the “Erie Express” or the horse and buggy.

excitement of endings and new beginnings all around you. So, you can’t help but have romantic feelings this week. Live in the moment and let that special someone know how much they mean to you. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even though your financial situation may seem stalled right now, know that unseen forces are at work for you. Just remember, whatever you believe you will manifest into your life. So, believe you are worthy of the abundance you deserve and it’s yours. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Lately, you have been feeling more restless than normal. You might start cleaning out closets and drawers to feel more settled and at home. You might even do a little housekeeping with some tired friendships that feel like they are holding you back. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This is a good week to go looking for love or rekindle your romance at home. Let go of the past emotions that interfere with moving forward in order to form closer bonds with those you love. There is not better time to take action than in this moment. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Sometimes your daily routine keeps you so busy that you often feel you are unable to connect with the rest of the world. When this happens, force yourself to take just a moment for you. Stop, breathe, and feel in order

to return some balance in your life. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ve been waiting to long time for some good things to finally come together for you. At first, you may not recognize this opportunity as a good thing. But take a closer look and you will find the hidden blessing that is there for you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Relationships are extra special to you right now. Some recent disappointments have helped you realize who is really important in life. So, don’t delay in letting your family, friends and partner know just how much you care. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Work may not be your favorite place right now, but this week it’s a great way to take a break from issues at home. Give things time to cool down and then have a talk with the kids or your partner. Things will improve with a more open form of communication.

Aries (March 21-Apr. 19) This week financial matters are on your mind. Just when you thought you had your finances under control some unexpected expense shows up. Take a deep breath and gain some balance on the situation. This mindset will allow the solution to come forward. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) You may be tested this week and staying focused will help you accomplish your goals. If you get caught up in emotional distractions, things will feel scattered and off track. Just remember that the storms of life build character and strength you will need in the future. Gemini (May 21-June 21) This week may feel more challenging than the past few weeks. You always have a lot of responsibilities on your plate but this week seems excessive. Take a moment to catch your breath and clear your mind. You know what’s important and what can wait. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Go with the flow this week and don’t let the bumps along the way take you off track. If you can manage your emotions, everyone around you will respond in positive ways.

St. John’s Jesuit Academy to add grade 6 in Fall
TOLEDORev. Joaquin Martinez, S.J., president of St. John’s Jesuit High School & Academy, announced the school will be adding a sixth grade beginning in the Fall 2011. St. John’s Jesuit is currently accepting applications for 45 incoming sixth grade students. The Academy was established in 2004 for seventh and eighth grade boys. There are currently 120 students enrolled for the 2010-11 school year. According to Dr. Bryon Borgelt, Academy Principal, this decision follows several years of planning. “We are excited about adding another grade to the SJJ Academy. We have experienced great success in educating boys in the Academy and preparing them for academic success in high school. We believe in the advantages of providing a same sex educational environment. At the Academy, our greatest strength is understanding how boys learn. We are fortunate to have the faculty and stateof- the-art educational tools to support every kind of learner. We also are a big proponent of hands-on learning and educational experiences that introduce new concepts and reinforce our curriculum. Most importantly, our students are always motivated and challenged to achieve their best. Middle school is a critical period of development for boys. The SJJ Academy, upholding the Jesuit tradition, is uniquely qualified to educate the whole person and that means developing young men intellectually, spiritually and physically,” he said. An Academy education prepares middle school students for a college preparatory high school. More than 95% of all Academy students go on to St. John’s Jesuit High School. The Academy offers outstanding academic programs with monthly field trips to locations such as the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati and Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. This past spring, the Academy opened a greenhouse on campus to learn about plant life, growing cycles, the green movement, and protecting the environment. Extracurricular activities include a Lego Robotics Team, Chess Club, Math Counts, Power of the Pen, Science Olympiad, Mock Trial, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Fishing Club, Book
