Euclid Represents at DAZZLE

DAZZLE AWARD performers/participants on the Connor Palace stage, including 5 of Euclid's own from the 2016 production of West Side Story.

Euclid High School was one of nineteen area high schools to participate in the 1st annual DAZZLE AWARDS on Saturday, May 21st in the illustrious Connor Palace at Cleveland's own Playhouse Square.  This inaugural gala event celebrated the art of musical theatre and also recognized the countless hours spent to produce these ""Broadway-caliber" high school musical productions from the past few months. Over 180 students from the participating high school musical productions took the Connor stage, blowing away the thousands in attendance with their awesomely wicked talents.  Among these students were Euclid's very own, representing this year's 2016 Big Show Production of West Side Story were: Ashley Johnson (EHS Class of 2016, "Maria"-nominated for The John and Patricia Chapman Best Actress Award), Corbin Gray (EHS Class of 2018, "Action"-nominated for The John and Patricia Chapman Best Supporting Actor Award), and from EHS Class of 2017:  Lauren Banasik ("Anita"), Abbie Dickerson ("Consuela"), and Kourtney Price ("Teresita").  Euclid's West Side Story production also earned itself a nomination in the category for BEST CHOREOGRAPHY EXECUTION.  Prior to the DAZZLE Award event, these 180 participants engaged in a week-long tech rehearsal which, in itself, was an educational experience second to none, having the opportunity to work with Tony Award-nominated director/choreographer Dan Knechtges to stage the DAZZLE Awards for an entire week will certainly be a wonderful memory to last a lifetime!

Rehab Center versus Home Care

“There’s no place like home.”  While Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz was certainly right about this sentiment, there are definitely places that can provide a good substitute while getting you back on your feet, and back in your own front door.  Today’s seniors are forced to make a decision following an illness or a recent surgery.  They must decide whether they have the support and resources necessary to recover at home, or whether they need to enter a rehabilitation center temporarily to receive the necessary care.  Home care, while very appealing, can be more expensive, more restrictive, and more slowly paced then receiving care in a rehab center with skilled nursing care.  Rehab centers provide on-site, high level, round-the-clock nursing care, in addition to on-site physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, as often as necessary.  Rehabilitation centers can provide safety and privacy, while providing professional, compassionate care, exercise, appropriate nutrition, controlled medication, and social stimulation.  This enables residents to achieve their highest quality of life potential quickly, and safely, so that they can return home and resume their previous lifestyle.  Investigating local rehab centers BEFORE you need one enables you to make an informed, low pressure decision.  Call and research local facilities, such as Mount St. Joseph Rehab Center in Euclid, and ask for a tour and an introduction to the rehab staff to give yourself the best possible information before you need to make a decision about future care.

Hose Master Develops Manufacturing Apprentice Program to Train Machinists and Welders

Can you guess what Hose Master makes? Yup. Hose! But not of the garden variety. Hose Master manufactures ¼-inch to 20-inch-in-diameter metal hoses with expansion joints to transport liquids and gasses for industrial applications where rubber hose won’t work because the environment is too hot (think, steel mill), too cold, or where there is a concern that something could permeate the hose (think, chemical plants and refineries), such as in the transport of chlorine. As consumers, we have encountered their hoses in three places: the metal hose that connected the receiver to the box in a pay-phone booth in the good old days, the hose on a handheld showerhead and the hose that we can’t see beneath the dispenser at a gas station, which pumps the gas up from the underground tank.

Euclid Resident to Launch Cleveland’s First Online Platform for Nonprofits

Pam Turos and the Cleveland Leadership Center's Accelerate 2016 finalists accept their award checks. The Good Cause Blog was sponsored in partnership with Citizens Bank, Westfield Insurance and Oswald Companies.

After fifteen years as a social worker in the healthcare and non-profit industries, Pam Turos noticed that many small, hard-working non-profits continuously struggled to build an online presence for their organization.  In May of 2015 Pam began volunteering to help some local organizations with their web site content, social media and storytelling, which quickly developed into a full time business. But she soon realized it wasn’t enough to help one organization at time, and she imagined a place where all of the great causes in Cleveland could work together, sharing space online and building a much larger audience than any of them could create alone.

Historical Marker To Celebrate Supreme Court Win 90 Years Ago

On Thursday, June 9, in remembrance of the village of Euclid's landmark 1926 victory against Ambler Realty Company in the supreme court of the United States, a special celebration will be held from 4 PM to 6 PM at 20001 Euclid Ave. during which an Ohio historical marker will be dedicated.

The case, in which Aambler Realty sued the village in protest of its zoning laws, established the legal basis for zoning legislation throughout the United States. "That decision still stands today," notes the Euclid historical societie's recent newsletter, "and it is taught in every real estate law class in the country."

The dedication of the historical marker will be followed by a complimentary reception with light refreshments. (To attend, register online at www.OhioPlanning.org/EuclidVAmblerdedication.) For more information contact the city of Euclid Department of planning and development at 216-289-2830

Bob's Corner

In life there will always be people who are better-looking, stronger, smarter and richer than you.   There will be people who have more things, people who are luckier and people who are more creative.  Truthfully, that doesn’t matter much because there is only one you, and that makes you infinitely valuable.

In all of human history there has never been, and there never will be, another you.  You are wholly unique.  One of a kind.  No one will ever have the exact same experiences.  No one else will know your particular thoughts and struggles.  And, no one else will have your many joys and successes. 

But, there are two things in life that can keep us from experiencing happiness; living in the past and comparing ourselves with others.  Both of these are a waste of your precious time.

Euclid’s first brewery finds success Downtown

The City of Euclid is thrilled to welcome another new, small business - the much anticipated Euclid Brewing Company located in a storefront at 21950 Lake Shore Boulevard next door to Lake Shore Coffee House.

The brewery, which opened in May 2016 with local couple Doug and Kim Fry at the helm, enjoys an excellent tagline: “Because every great city should have its own brewery.”
Indeed, it’s popular opinion that this is the city’s first craft brewery.

Earlier this year, Doug left his job as a principal scientist with Ricerca to launch this business. His experimentation with brewing began in 2005 when he was gifted a Mr. Beer homebrew starter kit. Doug’s background in chemistry, affinity for Euclid and desire to keep busy post-retirement culminates in this brewery, which for the time being uses a two-barrel system.

While there is not a kitchen, there is no shortage of nearby food options which you are welcome to bring in. Pull up a stool to a reclaimed laboratory table top or the bar, overlooking the brewing equipment. With a rotating of seasonal craft beers planned, this spot is sure to be a destination for both Euclid residents and those further afield.

Euclid Brewing Company launched with limited hours to start. Enjoy Doug’s favorite, the Pale Ale, Thursdays from 4-7pm, Fridays from 4-8pm and Saturdays between 2 and 7pm. Check for updates on days, times and what is newly on tap at www.facebook.com/EuclidBrewingCompany.

We were encouraged to support one another, not only on this walk, but on our walk of life." The school and parish particularly want to thank all the great volunteers who made the event possible, and to the friends and family who are on this walk with us.
