Lenape gathering draws committed crowd
BY WJ KEACH
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
WAYNE TOWNSHIP – The
Ashtabula County Antique Engine
Club grounds were the site of a Lenape Nation meeting. Billed as the
12th Annual Powwow Honoring
Our Ancestors, the United Eastern
Nation Lenape Nation gathered
from various states on June 17,
18 and 19.
The Powwow opened with a
solemn ceremonial dance and
drumming honoring Lenape veterans and ancestors. United States
Armed forces veterans were invited to join Lenape veterans to
enter the Sacred Circle.
A small fire burned as the procession of about forty people slowly
made their way around the circle.
Guests removed their hats and
watched in respectful silence as
the veterans were honored in the
fifteen minute ceremony. Guests
were asked not to take photographs until the ceremony ended.

Orwell Village Council passes ordinance hiking zoning related fees
BY DORIS COOK
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
ORWELL - An increase in zoning related fees was approved by
Orwell Village Council at its June
21 meeting earlier this week. The
ordinance read for the third time
after a public hearing was passed
as an emergency taking effective
immediately.
The fee hikes and also a section
of the zoning regulations relating
to off-street parking areas were
amended by the legislation, officials said. The proposed changes
had been recommended by the
village’s Planning & Zoning Commission several months ago, but

so council moved to approve
the legislation. The zoning fee
increases affect applications for
new residential, multi-family and
commercial/industrial buildings,
plus fee hikes for a number of
other applications for installing
swim pools, construction parking
lots, requests for variance and
conditional use permits. A list of
the new zoning fees is available at

WILLIAMSFIELD TOWNSHIP - The Williamsfield Township Road Department garage
is getting a needed facelift this
week. Earlier this year during a
heavy wind and rainstorm sliding
doors and siding of the garage on
Route 322 was heavily damaged.
Temporary repairs were made,
but township officials filed an
insurance claim to get the needed
major repairs done, said Trustee
Gary Babb.
“We hired local contractor,
Ray Shetler Roofing Co. and I’m
donating my labor and some of
my company equipment to get it
all fixed up,” said Babb earlier
this week.

Meet Your Autumn Lynn is new hairstylist at New Convenant Styling Salon
Neighbor
Christy Paul is the owner
of New Covenant Styling
Salon at 100 Public
Square in Andover. The
shop celebrated its 30th
anniversary in January this
year.
BY JOY COBB
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
ANDOVER - Christ y
Paul has owned New Convenant Styling Salon at
100 Public Square NE in
Andover for three decades.
Not a fan of social media,
it was therefore good time
for Paul when salon-owner
Autumn Lynn of Pittsburgh heard of a job opening at New Convenant
through Lynn’s brotherin-law, one of Paul’s local
customers. The opening
hadn’t been advertised.
“I heard about the
job word-of-mouth,” said
Lynn
“I don’t do Google or
Facebook or any of that,”
said Paul, although the
salon can be found with a
Google search.
“The shop celebrated
our 30th anniversary in
January of this year. Julie
Day was here with me the
whole time, for 30 years.
She was a stylist here and
my best friend,” said Paul.
Day left New Convenant on April 1 this year.
“She’s very missed, but
she’s living the dream,”
Paul said of Day.
About the same time
that Day retired, Lynn
was growing weary of the
long hours involved in
co-owning a Wella-based
Pittsburgh salon.
“I had 12 employees
and owned the salon for
four years,” said Lynn.
But work followed Lynn
home most evenings.
“I would get calls at
home most nights,” she
added.
Lynn also missed her
sister, Tracy who grew
up in Pittsburgh, but has
lived in the Andover area
for 15 years. Lynn and her
husband fell in love with
the area during visits to
her sister.
“It was perfect timing
when my brother-in-law
told me about New Convenant,” said Lynn. “I sold
my part of the salon to
my co-owner. We had a
tough time finding a petfriendly place to live in
the Andover area though,”
said Lynn, who owns a
beagle-mix dog and cats.
Lynn said that the
lack of pet-friendly housing was surprising for a
“country” area.
Lynn’s husband, a chef
found a job at Grindhouse
Gourmet Burgers, located
in Ashtabula Harbor.
“We’re foodies,” said
Lynn. “We enjoy discovering new places to eat.”
Lynn and husband
loaded up a 26 ft. moving truck, drove their
pets and belongings from
Pittsburgh, and started
their new jobs the next
day.
“We wanted a simple
live. I mostly love being
here with my sister,” said
Lynn.
A salon customer, who
didn’t wish to be named
but offered praise of Lynn,
said,”She’s an ‘old soul’.
She’s a city girl with a
country soul.”
Trained at Toni and
Guy Hairdressing Academy in Erie, Pa. before
owning her Pittsburgh
salon, Lynn puts a customer at ease by discussing haircut preferences
before picking up her
scissors. She’s a natural
with tossing the conversational ball back & forth,
making an appointment
go quickly.
“I didn’t enjoy some of
the typical ‘chit-chat’ I
heard in my salon,” Lynn
said. “Some of the girls
would go on and on about
their Coach bags, while
still living at home with
their parents and had no
bills of their own.”
Lynn smiles throughout the job, laughing
easily at more down-toearth topics. She listens
as much as she speaks to
her customers, and she’s
already fond of her new
boss, Paul.

Autumn Lynn at New
Convenant Styling Salon
can be made by calling

Red Barn Gallery & Studio Art4Everyone open weekends with classes & art demonstrations
BY DORIS COOK
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
CONNEAUT LAKE, PA.For the 4th season western
Pennsylvania and regional
artists are at the Red Barn
Studio & Gallery demonstrating or holding classes
for the public on Saturday
and Sunday from 12 noon
to 4 p.m. The barn store
is located at 12810 Foust
Rd., east of Route 18 on the
Conneaut Lake Bark Park.
“Look for the road signs,”
says Arts4Everyone director and noted wood carver,
George Nowack of Espyville,
Pa.
Back again this Sunday
carving wood bowls and
vessels is A4E artist Dean
Oyen of Jamestown, Pa.
Nowack this past Sunday
was carving his next project, a replica of the carousel
Dentzel Mueller Lion at
Conneaut Lake Area Historical Museum. He is at the
museum on Third St. every
third Sunday this summer
from 2 to 5 p.m. doing his
carving. The Mueller Lion,
an original was among the
early Conneaut Lake Park
Carousel characters made
especially for the amusement park ride.
“When the park owners
sold out many of those hand

quilt will be hung at the RRA Clubhouse for the community’s July 4 weekend 50th

Shores residents to design their own block and are all varied.
carousel replicas. This one
should be done in six months
or more as I don’t work on it
steadily,” Nowack said last
Sunday at the museum stop.
Some 20 different regional
artists from jewelry makers
to painters and weavers like
Judy Hanninen of Waterloo
Mohair of Utica, Pa. have
kiosk niches to sell and work
on their artware at the Red
Barn Gallery. Nowack and his
group of area artists welcome
visitors to stop in for the best
offerings in local and regional
art. You can sign up to take
creative classes or there are
“make and take” classes on
the weekend with the artists.
“When people come in the
barn and I’m carving I let
them take a chisel and they
can also chip away on the
Mueller Lion replica I am currently working on. I put their
name on a card who helped
on the carving. The original
carousel amusement ride at
Conneaut Lake Park were
all done by Dentzel. Today at
the park’s carousel ride those
animals and characters were
done by Carousel Works Co.
in Mansfield, Ohio. To do this
lion I went on the platform at
the park ride last fall and took
photos of the original lion’s
footprints, which you can still
see in the wood. It gave me
then an idea of its size. The
original lead horse and other
characters were there at the
park until the early 1920’s,”
explained Nowack.
He said that the Arts4Everyone group also puts out an
on-line newsletter weekly. It
contains updated information
on all Pa. and Ohio art shows,
community events around the
Penn-Ohio Lakelands and
other tri-state areas.
At the Red Barn Studio
artists involved offer classes
including watercolor painting, pencil stippling, Navajo
rug weaving and fabric art,
nature photography, Zentangle, fly-tying for fishing, jewelry workshop, wood carving,
slate painting plus more. For
information on the classes
call Nowack at 814-795-6888

The picnic on July 20

covered pavilion at the
Ashtabula County Antique
Engine Club grounds, located on US Route 322 in
Wayne Township and east
of Route 11.
“In honor of this election
year 2016 we have two
former First Ladies, Mary
Todd Lincoln and Lucretia
Garfield stopping for lunch
with us. They will share a
conversation of many topics over a cup of tea. These
two women from different
generations will discuss
their individual lives in
the Executive Mansion
of Washington, D.C. and
what happened in those
years,” said Bechtel.
The two women will
be portrayed by area reenactors, Marian King
of Ashtabula as Mary
Todd Lincoln and Debbie
Weinkamer of Lake County as Lucretia Garfield. A
catered lunch is planned
with the menu including
Patriotic cupcakes, chicken salad croissants, fresh
veggies with dip, fresh
fruit, beverages including coffee, tea and water.
Persons attending can also
bring their own beverage if
they prefer.
“The luncheon tickets are $10 per person
and includes our special
program. Registration by
group is preferred if possible,” said Bechtel.
The reservation deadline is June 30. Reservations can be by mail with

for six tickets, door prize
drawings and more.
“We are hoping for a
large turnout of the Red
Hat Ladies not only from
our country, but from western Pennsylvania, Geauga
and Lake counties and the
Warren-Niles area. We are
delighted to have Marian
King and Debbie Weinkamer coming to present the
program. The two former
First Ladies will share not

into independent widows
of their era. You will learn

the history books,” said
Bechtel.

Conneaut Lake Area Historical Society hosting 2nd annual Car Cruise-In at museum
BY DORIS COOK
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
CONNEAUT LAKE, PA.The 4th annual Summer
Car Cruise-In is coming up
Saturday, July 9 at the Conneaut Lake Area Historical
Society’s museum, located
on Third St. in the village.
All models of historic and
vintage cars and trucks plus
collector type vehicles are
welcome for the events, said
Cruise-In chairman Charles
Groger.
“Registration for the car
owners begins at 9 a.m. with
a fee of $5. The Cruise-In is
open to the public and we
hope to bring in more owners of restored vehicles. Last
year we had nearly 50 cars
and trucks. There is plenty
of parking area next to our
museum building,” he said.
The Trinity United Methodist Church next door from
the museum has offered use
of its parking lot as well.
Groger said there is room
for at least 150 cars and this
is one of the larger events
planned for the summer
this year.
The Car Cruise-In hours
are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Society members will be serv-
ing grilled hot dogs to buy
along with cold beverages.
There will also be a Bake
Sale stand open as well.
“At 12 noon we will bring
out from the museum the
historic Liberty the Second
boat and run the motor for
a short few minutes. The
engine is a Liberty airplane
engine and only three of
these exist today. I use my
truck to tow out the boat,”
Groger explained.
The boat is a speedboat
model that was to compete
in a Conneaut Lake race in
1922. It capsized and sank
in the lake bottom. The boat
was finally recovered 63
years later, restored and is
an integral exhibit for the
museum.
Visitors will be able to
tour the museum during the
afternoon where several new
collections are displayed.
One depicts an early Pa. Native American Indian small
village, said Groger.
“Third Street is closed off
for the event on Saturday.
Collector car owners from
Ohio and Pennsylvania are
among the people, who bring
their vehicles. We always
welcome car clubs as well,”
he said. “And we hope the
weather will be great to
bring out not only the vehicle
owners, but lots of visitors to
enjoy the day and museum
tours.”
Meadville’s radio station
Cool 101 will set up a tent
to do a live broadcast at the
cruise-in. They’ll be interviewing and playing music
to add to the festivities.
The Conneaut Lake Area
Historical Society Museum
is open for visitor tours every weekend on Saturdays
and Sundays from 2 to 5
p.m. for tours. It will close
in the fall, said Groger, vice
president of the society.
Volunteers and members
help guide the tours. The so-
ciety has a number of books
on the Conneaut Lake area
of Pa., the Conneaut Lake
Park history, plus other
publications, tee shirts and
other souvenir type items
for sale inside.
During the winter
months the society volunteers work on changing
many of the displays inside for their spring month
opening. Donations are also
excepted for the museum
relating to early CL area
history.
For information on the
Summer Car Cruise-In
event please contact Charles
Groger at 814-382-8722.

small fire rose gently in the
breathless air. One small
boy of about seven years

dancer. Fittingly, he seemed
to be compelled by his ancestors, as his controlled precise

Mother Doe explained the
origins of her name:
“Our Tribal Mother had a
dream in which she saw me
as a mother doe because I’ve
spent so much time working
with lost animals.”

night and uncertain future: “I don’t know why they
did it. It’s not like I crapped

“But on the night of Sept.
29, 2003, my human drove
me to the South County Shelter in San Diego, removed
my tag, tied me to a light
pole in the parking lot, and
left me there in the middle of
the night.
“When the shelter staff
came to work the next morning, they untied me and
took me in, but my troubles
weren’t over yet. Because
money for pet shelters is
limited, California shelters
keep pets without tags for
only three days.
“The morning of Oct. 3, my
time was up. A little before

opened the door to my cage
and reached in, a sad look on

Lago Winery owners adding on and opening Mortals Key micro-brewery bar
BY DORIS COOK
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
JAMESTOWN,PA.-This weekend Lago Winery owners, Doug and
Connie Shannon are opening their
Mortals Key micro-brewery bar.
The bar in on the ground level in a
separate wood frame building with
lots of art deor touches inside and
out. Doug Shannon said that some
wineries are adding beer made on
the same premises as wineries.
“Some customers we have coming to the winery had asked if we
might some day put in a brewery.
I did a lot of research and looked
for the right equipment we could
get to start making beer here. It’s
been three years in the making to
get everything assembled including the ingredients to make beer.
It takes the best malted barley,
yeast, hops and water for example.
We made our first batches of beer
in late May,” said Shannon.
His two beer masters and partners in the brewery operation are
Sean McIntryre and Bruce Woyt.
Shannon said Sean in particiular
has 20 years experience in making
special beers. Getting the equipment assembled in the building
plus designing the bar ansd food
service areas in the building were
another challenge.
Getting the state licenses and
the building up took time, as well.
Shannon loves art and and being
creative.
He looked to find old pieces
and parts of items to “repurpose”
for Mortals Key Bar. For example
the front part of the food service
area is part of an old double decker
English bus found at a scrap yard.
It’s now part of the decor front of
the kitchen section.
“We have made something
unique for here I feel and hope
people will like what we’ve done
to stop in. The ingredients for our
beer comes from all over the world.
Here at our farm we have five acres
of barley growing. If we can get
our barley and yeast grown here
we will come full circle because we
also have a farmer working with us
to grow organic vegetables,” said
Shannon,.
During his research, Shannon
said he toured 17 days last year
in Germany to check out the beer
breweries there. The brewery bar
will be open the same days and
hours as the winery: Wednesdays
through Thursday 12 noon to 8 or
9 p.m..,Friday 12 to 9 p.m., Saturday 12 to 8 p.m., and Sunday 12 to

of the camp. “This is the
first year for Grand Valley
to host Camp Invention.
The kids learned a lot and
had a great time. We had
them doing whole body
movement for warm-ups,
building infrastructures
and designing water slides
for under the ocean. All of
the kids found things in
which they felt at home
and delved into with great
enthusiasm.”
Created by the National
Inventors Hall of Fame,
the program focuses on
STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) goals. The Camp
Invention web-site states,
“The program is focused
on creativity, innovation,
real-world problem solving
and the spirit of invention”.
That is exactly what
these youngsters who
ranged from entering first
grade to entering sixth
grade were doing the first
week of June at Grand
Valley Elementary School.
There were four modules that each student
participated in daily. The
“CrickoBot”, “Epic Park”,
“I Can Invent: Maker Studio” and “The lab: Where
Pigs Fly”.
In CrickoBot students
built a power circuit for a
solar powered cricket. Stu-
dents explored the unique
makeup and biology of
the cricket. Their crickets
were then involved in other experiments throughout
the week before students
took them home on Friday.
The building of Epic
Park sparked creativity.
Students constructed zip
lines, water flumes and
designed an eco-friendly
theme park to attract visitors. All of this was centered around a treehouse
designed using simple
machines.
“I Can Invent” was
the most popular module among the majority
of students. There they
disassembled appliances and old electronics to
make a prototype for a new
product. They especially
enjoyed the demolition
phase.
The Lab may have been
the messiest portion of the

week. Here students made
slime, studied properties
of light, made code for a

Students took home
their new pet robotic cricket, and its habitat, their
inventions, slime with
other creations accompanied by a new appreciation
for and understanding the
world of science and a ton
of smiles.

Jefferson councilman to appear again on BattleBots
New episode to air June 23
BY STEFANIE WESSELL
GAZETTE NEWSPAPERS
JEFFERSON - Jefferson
Village Councilman Lon
Damon will make another
appearance on the television show BattleBots on
ABC this Thursday, June
23, in a special two-hour
episode from 8-10 p.m.
Although he couldn’t
give much away, Damon
hinted about his appearance during a Jefferson
Village Council meeting
on Monday, June 20, telling council members they
should tune in.
On BattleBots, competitors design and operate
remote-controlled armed
and armored machines
designed to fight in an
arena combat elimination
tournament.
Damon appeared during the previous season
of the show, as he and a
colleague spent a week
working on the show, 10
to 14 hours a day.
He became involved
with the TV show, which
previously aired on Comedy Central for five seasons
from 2000-2002, before
airing on ABC last year,
through his position at
Lincoln Electric, where
he handles trade show,
TV, movie and celebrity
sponsorships that have to
do with welding.
“Lincoln Electric was
involved 10 years ago with
the show, which was before
I got a promotion into the
marketing department. We
got asked to be a partner to
weld [and] fabricate during filming of six episodes
in Vallejo, Calif.,” Damon
said during an interview
last year.
Damon’s main job on
the show was to repair robots in between the rounds
so they can compete at the
next battle.

Public forum slated Saturday on Improving the Health of Conneaut Lake
CONNEAUT LAKE, PA.The Conneaut Lake Aquatic
Management Association
(CLAMA) and Crawford
County Conservation District is hosting a discussion
forum on improving the
health and water quality
of Conneaut Lake this Saturday, June 25 at 10 a.m.
The meeting open to the
public, area residents from
not only Conneaut Lake, but
out of state property owners
around the lake area. It will
be held at the Conneaut
Lake Borough Town, 395
High St., Conneaut Lake, Pa.
The economic well-being
of the communities around
Conneaut Lake is tied directly to the health of the waters
of Conneaut Lake. Without
a clean lake the community
suffers. The municipalities
around the lake, as well
as the community have an
obligation to improve and
protect the water quality and
condition of the lake to ensure strong visitor numbers
and property values now and
into the future.
Dr. Fred Lubnow, a lake
scientist and engineer with
Princeton Hydro will be
presenting why planning for
a healthier lake is important
for retaining or improving
property values, retaining
and increasing tourism, as
well as improving the overall
condition of the lake.
The meeting will serve as
a “kick off meeting” for the
development of a planning

KINSMAN TOWNSHIP - There will be lots of excitement
and plenty of visitors on hand next month as the Harry Lees
American Legion Post 506 and Auxiliary bring the Kinsman
area in nortern Trumbull County the Kelly Miller Circus.
It’s an all new circus show for Tuesday, July 26 when the
Kelly Miller Circus troupe rolls into town.
Presale tickets are available from any American Legion
Post member or call Skip LaPlante . Advance presale tickets
are $12 for adults & persons 12 years and older, $6 for kids
ages under 12 years.
On day of the circus, tickets sold at the box office are

receives a greater percentage of presale tickets sold. The
advance sale tickets are also available at Kinsman area businesses or go online at www.KellyMillerCircus.com.

communities are invited to watch the animals being unloaded and fed by handlers on day of arrival. You can also

document that will serve as
a blueprint for local officials
and community members
to create a healthier lake.
The Crawford County Conservation District has been
awarded a PA. Department
of Environmental Protection
“Growing Greener” grant to
develop a Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) for the
Conneaut Lake watershed.
Once developed, reviewed
and subsequently approved
by PA DEP, this Plan will
increase the opportunity the
municipalities within the
Conneaut Lake watershed,
CLAMA, and Crawford
County agencies to obtain
State and Federal grants to
implement stormwater and
in-lake management measures to reduce non-point
source (NPS) pollutants,
such as total phosphorus
(TP) and total suspended
solids (TSS), that enter the
lake. Elevated TP concentrations stimulate nuisance
levels of algal blooms and
aquatic vegetation, while
elevated TSS results in
the in-filling of near-shore
areas. Thus, reducing the
amount of these pollutants
entering the lake will improve / protect its overall
water quality, according to
CCD watershed specialist,
Brian S. Pilarcik..
Currently Conneaut
Lake is listed as being impaired for excess nutrients
on the EPA’s Integrated
Waters List. The ultimate
goal of the WIP is to assist
the local communities with
removing the lake from that
list. Again, with property
values and tourism tied directly to the condition of
the lake it is critical that
the local communities work
together to improve the
health of the lake. Come
learn how you can be part
of that future. For more
information contact Brian
Pilarcik at 814-763-5269.

GARAGE
From page 1A
There is new metal
siding going up on three
sides which were damaged,
north, west and south sides
of the structure. Babb is
working alongside of Mr.
Shetler and his crew.
They took advantage of
the good summer weather
this week to tackle the job.
“We are putting up a
tan color siding and have
dark green trim. When that
straight wind hit at night it
actually took one hanging
door off. Our trustee board
had a new roof put on the
garage about three years
ago along with insulation.
We also replaced the ceiling
light so our road supervisor
could do work on projects
inside,” said Babb.
The garage building
was constructed in the
mid-1970’s, he said. The
insurance company claim
of $8,500 will pay for the
contracted work and materials for this nice new
facelift for the township
garage.
Babb said if the weather
holds out sunny and warm
all the work will wind up
by this Saturday.

He also submitted preapplications for grants to

Village Manager Varckette spoke briefly with the
council members regarding an Ohio EPA mandate that may soon require
the village to have a utility department employee
overseeing the wastewater
treatment plant at least

he explained adding that

Varckette also told council that the fire department
trucks are moving to a regular maintenance schedule
for any repairs needed. The
department recently received a $10,000 grant to be
used to purchase firefighter
gear and oxygen respirator
bottles needed.

Varckette said the bands

individual or area business who would like to be
a sponsor can still sign up
to help pay the costs. Next
year, Varckette wants to
form a concert committee
to handle the summer series of band entertainment
and add new ideas for the
project.
He also took time to
thank several families
including Phil Ruks and
council members who
helped out at the May 21
Clean Up Day collection.
Varckette said it was a good
