Longtime resident Richard Gash was chosen as this year’s recipient of Bay Village’s top honor in recognition of his tireless work with the city’s youth.

Gash, skipper of Sea Scout Ship 41, launched the program with Scott Engel in spring 2000. Over the past two decades, the Scouting program has provided on-the-water learning adventures to hundreds of area students.

“Since day one I have been impressed with Richard’s dedication to Sea Scouts and the principles of Scouting,” said Dawn Hamil, whose three children participate in the program. “He constantly finds challenges that allow time for thoughtfulness and there are plenty of active challenges to test one’s spirit and athletics. He takes care of and nurtures mind, body and soul which is an amazing gift to these young adults.”

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center celebrates 75th anniversary

Elberta Fleming, founder of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center.

The curiosity of a child inspired Elberta Fleming to create a nature center for children. While working at the front desk of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, a young boy approached her to ask about the butterfly in his hand. This serendipitous moment sparked an awe-inspiring conversation for the child and demonstrated to Elberta the power of discovery through hands-on learning.

In 1945, Elberta founded a “Junior Museum” in her home in Bay Village with a display of animals in her backyard, nature specimens throughout her home and a compelling vision to teach nature and science to people in the community. As a mother, artist and environmental advocate, her vision fueled the early formation of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center from modest beginnings.

Now and then in Dover

"Scene from High Level Bridge near N. Dover O." on Leiter postcard published about 1910. This building may be either the Oviatt or Cahoon sawmills.

Many collectibles cherished by previous generations have little market value today. One exception are postcards, especially Real Picture Post Cards (RPPCs) which command high prices. One reason for their popularity is that they provide a glimpse into daily life during a time when few people owned their own cameras.

As we all welcome the 2020 New Year, the City Council of Bay Village has been busy, already holding three meetings during the 2020 year. In addition, those Council members elected in November 2019 were sworn into office by Rocky River Municipal Court Judge Brian Hagan on Jan. 1 at the Dwyer Center.

Those re-elected to new Council terms included David Tadych (Ward 1 and Council Vice President), Lydia DeGeorge (Ward 2), Sara Byrnes Maier (Ward 3), Peter Winzig (Ward 4), and Dwight Clark (City Council President). We extend a warm welcome to new Councilman-at-Large Thomas Kelly, who formally begins his four-year term. Councilwoman-at-Large Nancy Stainbrook rounds out the group; she was the only Council member not up for re-election in 2019. City Council works to operate efficiently and transparently, and much of this credit goes to our valued and long-standing Clerk of City Council, Joan Kemper.

Scanning the airwaves

As Clevelanders, we are used to “whiteouts” during winter snowstorms. Whiteout imagery outside the windshield reminds me of what showed up on our TV screen when fiddling with rabbit-ears to get a good reception in the good old days.

When the “analog” broadcast ended in mid-2009 with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandate requiring all TV stations broadcast exclusively in a “digital” format, blocky (geeky term: pixelated) imagery on the TV screen equated to poor reception. Many were already on cable or satellite TV service so never saw change.

Winners and losers in the grocery game

The retail chains Aldi and Trader Joe’s have always been competitors in the city of Westlake, but many aren’t familiar with these stores’ origins.

In 1946 Germany, brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht founded the grocery store Aldi. In a war-torn country, the idea of a low cost grocery store chain took off and they were soon able to expand. Within four years, their small chain had expanded to 13 stores and the business continued to grow.

As Germany’s economy continued to evolve, tensions began to rise between the two brothers. The final blow occurred in 1960, when the two brothers disputed on whether to sell cigarettes. Both brothers had different ideas on what kind of business – or what kind of problems – that the cigarette-smoking consumer would bring.

This month, BAYarts has an exhibition that hits close to home. In "Finding My Home, Finding Myself," photographer Emma Wolpert displays images taken on a return visit to Huazhou, China. It was there that she was abandoned at a bus stop and taken to an orphanage.

The orphanage Wolpert was taken to is called Huazhou Social Welfare Institution, founded back in 1930. Prior to 1995, children had to live there until age 18 when they got a job, or else they stayed at the orphanage. But in November 1995 the orphanage allowed some of the children to be adopted. That April, Wolpert was adopted (at 8 months old) and then raised in Bay Village.

The Green New Deal: Any way to pay for it?

In my last column, I wrote about the Green New Deal after I attended a speaker hosted by Westshore FaCT. I attended the next speaker in the series on Jan. 7 about how to pay for it. The speaker was Raul Carrillo, a research fellow at the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity and is a graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Law School.

As I had not yet researched funding for the Green New Deal, I went into the session with a completely open mind other than knowing the Green New Deal is a radical plan that requires billions of dollars. What I learned during the speech was completely new information to me.

Before you read on, I want to remind you that I am not an economist, and I never pretend to be one! I also want you to know that my hope is that this column will inspire you to research this issue on your own. I do not want to influence anyone’s opinion about this issue; I would like to simply introduce you to this idea as it is worth your time to understand it better.

Learning and giving at Bay Village Garden Club

Judy Minium, co-president of the Bay Village Garden Club, displays her handiwork at the club's recent Christmas Greening workshop.

Members of Bay Village Garden Club join together to increase their knowledge of gardening and to give of their time and efforts to share the beauty of nature with the community.

This year, we’ll be visiting Monet’s Gardens of Giverny through a slide presentation by a local art historian. We’ll learn how to grow the modern perennial cutting garden with an OSU agriculture and natural resources educator. Then we'll find out about the plants that changed the world from a past vice president of horticulture at Cleveland Botanical Gardens. We’ll tour the historical English gardens through the insights of a third-generation nursery owner and we’ll take a field trip to Kingwood Gardens. Plus enjoy a workshop in container gardening. Finally, we’ll discover the new plants for 2020.

'Heroes' continues Clague's 91st season

expedition in Clague Playhouse's "Heroes." Photo by Terry Schordock

It is August 1959, France, in a home for retired military men, where World War I vets Henri (played by Bob Goddard), Philippe (Ron Newell) and Gustave (Robert Hawkes) pass their days gossiping, reminiscing and exasperating one another with harebrained schemes to escape.

The play is a softly heroic treatment of three war heroes for whom death is a familiar presence. They decide to take on one final adventure – granted, an impossible and faintly ridiculous adventure – before the outside world completely forgets them.

The two extremes of apartment cat life

Luna walks the rails in her apartment. Various perching locations can help mitigate boredom in apartment-dwelling cats.

Life for an apartment cat can be quite boring or melodramatic. A nice quiet apartment on the top floor can make for a very bored cat, while a cat on a middle floor will experience all sorts of intrusions on their day. It may be the dog next door incessantly barking, the kids running up or down the hallway, or even the movers of another apartment may trigger an episode of anxiety in your apartment cat.

These situations often have overlapping ways to resolve themselves. The first thing you need to recognize is if your cat is indeed bored or stressed out.
