Covered Bridges of Astabula County
Travels with Pat & Tom Mugridge

There are over 125 covered bridges in Ohio, second only to Pennsylvania in number (so let's build some more so we can take the lead!). We decided that we would spend a weekend visiting the 17 that adorn the countryside of Ashtabula, and the 1 in the City of Geneva.

Episode 1 - Where have all the soldiers gone?
by Joseph Meissner

This was my second trip to Turkey, a country and people I very much admire and appreciate. Of course, on my second trip I learn how much I have not learned about Istanbul and Ephesus and Mary's place and Ottoman history.

It is impossible to relate all that happened on this trip. So I have picked out seven specific episodes and hope these may be thought-provoking as well as encourage you to plan a trip to Turkey, the home of Fethullah Gulen and Hizmet.

The Salad Dilemma
by Maury Feren

...He emphasized the fact that salads were really not all that nutritious, nor did they really fill the needs of your body for green stuff. I'm speaking mostly about the leaf vegetables because that is what I will be concentrating on when I continue on this subject.

I am truly angry at myself because I have been doing the same thing using salad as a filler expecting it to fill all my green needs when in truth there is nothing there in terms of body and nutritional value.

There is another problem. Thousands of pounds of lettuce are grown and shipped from the most arid area in the country. Lettuce needs lots of water. So we wind up spending all that money transporting lettuce 3,000 miles under refrigeration. This burns up tremendous energy and getting little for our money. I always thought that salads where on the right track but lets take a close look at what we have done. ....

Oh Say Could He Sing
Rest in Peace Rocco Scotti

Rocco Scotti sang the National Anthem like nobody else.

He performed at Cleveland Indians games of course but Rocco was also the permanent anthem singer for the Football Hall of Fame Ceremonies in Canton, Ohio. He performed for many nationally televised sporting events and civic functions in the United States and Canada. He even sang the National Anthem for Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan.

Cleveland Seniors Special of the Week

ClevelandSeniors.Com Book of the Week


In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
