CHS Homecoming King & Queen Red Cross recruiting MHS Homecoming King & Queen
local disaster volunteers

The American Red Cross of North Central Ohio needs local
volunteers who are trained to respond to disasters in their com-
munity. To help recruit new Disaster Action Team volunteers,
the Red Cross will be holding a public information presentation
on Tuesday, November 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the Lorain County
Red Cross office, located at 2929 W. River Rd., in Elyria.
The Red Cross responds to more than 60,000 disasters ev-
ery year, said Executive Director Todd James. The majority of
those disasters are local home fires.
“People see major disasters like hurricanes and wildfires
in the news and they know the Red Cross is there providing
shelter, food and comfort,” James said. “But it’s here at home
where we handle most of our disaster responses, helping fami-
lies who have lost their homes to fire or a local flood or storm.”
James said the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their vol-
unteer teams, like it has almost every other organization. “We
have a lot of volunteers who had to step back from helping and
haven’t been able to return. It’s vital that we have trained vol-
unteers ready to answer a call for help at all times.”
James said he knows that there is a commitment of time and
effort to being a Disaster Action Team volunteer, but the return
is well worth it. “Our volunteers will tell you that the hugs
they get and the feeling that comes with helping a family after
a fire or other disaster is worth more than gold, knowing that on
someone’s darkest day they are the light of hope.”
At the information session, attendees will learn the require-
ments to be a Disaster Action Team volunteer and will have the
opportunity to speak with current volunteers to ask questions

KHS Boys Varsity Cross Country Team Black River Stamp Club
Show returns

The Black River Stamp Club will mark the 75th anniversary
of the debut of the Cleveland Browns when its annual show and
bourse returns November 20. The theme recalls the Browns’
entry into the All-America Football Conference, which began
play in 1946. Four years later the team entered the National
Football League. The show runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at St. Jude
School, 590 Poplar St., in Elyria.
The club is arranging to have football memorabilia related to
the Cleveland team on display during the show courtesy of the
Elyria Chapter of the Browns Backers fan club and other fans.
In addition, a commemorative cover with a special cachet de-
picting a ferocious-looking “dawg,” emblematic of the “Dawg
Pound” that has cheered on the team for 40 years, and a pictori-
al postmark marking professional football’s return to Cleveland
in 1946. The cover will sell for $2. Covers can be ordered by
sending a check to the Black River Stamp Club, 3245 Nagel
Rd., Avon, OH 44011-2059.
As in previous years, the club will accept donations of
stamps, covers and supplies for the Stamps for the Wounded
program. The program introduces stamp collecting to veterans
in VA hospitals nationwide.
Other show features include a bourse with stamp dealers of-
fering a wide variety of philatelic material; free stamps for chil-
dren and information for adults to introduce them to philately;
a silent auction of stamps and covers; and a U.S. Postal Service
booth offering new stamp issues.
The show is free and open to the public. Plenty of free park-
ing is available and food will be available onsite. For more in-
formation, email the club at [email protected].
L-R: Stephen Faltay (sr.), Michael Spatafore (jr.), John Wargo (jr.), Michael Gale (so.), Evander Fedor (so.), Carter Taylor (jr.) Learn more about the club at

2 unique ways to cook a

Thanksgiving turkey

Thanksgiving is a beloved holiday. Families may have
their own unique Thanksgiving traditions, but one staple of
this kickoff to the holiday season is bound to make its way to
Thanksgiving dinner tables no matter how unusual families’
holiday celebrations may be: turkey.
Much effort goes into picking and preparing a Thanksgiv-
ing turkey. Depending on the size of the bird, turkeys can
take many hours to cook. Thanksgiving celebrants are no
doubt familiar with oven-roasted turkey, which is the most
traditional way to cook turkey. But this year hosts who want
to expand their horizons and think beyond the oven can con-
sider two popular alternative methods to cooking a Thanks-
giving turkey.
1. Deep frying
Deep frying is a popular way to prepare foods at outdoor
events. For example, stroll through the parking lot on game
day and you’re liable to find football fans deep frying their
favorite foods at their tailgate parties. Turkey can be deep
fried and this method makes for an ideal option for hosts who
want to enjoy the great outdoors while welcoming friends and
loved ones to their homes. Deep frying imparts a juicy flavor
that can be hard to replicate when roasting a turkey. Deep
frying is a much faster way to cook a turkey than cooking it
in the oven. However, deep frying also can be more dan-
gerous, so it’s imperative that cooks remain attentive when
setting up the fryer and while the turkey is frying.
Where to deep fry the turkey also bears consideration.
The turkey experts at Butterball® recommend deep frying
the turkey outside on a flat surface that’s far away from struc-
tures, including your home, garage, deck, etc.
The time required to deep fry a turkey will depend on the
size of the bird, but experts note that it typically takes about
3 to 3.5 minutes per pound. Electric fryers may take signifi-
cantly less time and they typically require less oil, so this is
another option to consider. Many experts note that it’s best
to deep fry turkeys that are 15 lbs. or less, as the turkey will
need to be completely submerged in oil when frying. In ad-
dition, turkeys larger than 15 lbs. may cook unevenly, which
can affect flavor.
2. Smoking
Smoking has grown in popularity in recent years as grills
that make this method possible have become more afford-
able. Smoking is a “low and slow” method of cooking, so this
option is ideal for people who intend to be home all day on
Thanksgiving and want to infuse their birds with a smoky
flavor. However, even busy hosts can still consider smoking,
as electric smokers now allow cooks to remotely control the
temperatures in their grills. That’s important, as smoking re-
quires cooks to periodically check the temperature on their
grills to ensure it has not dropped too low or risen too high.
Smoking a turkey typically requires maintaining a tem-
perature between 225 and 250 F. Cooking times for smoked

JVS partnership means big opportunities for students

Tom Stannard (second on left) stands with LCJVS Industrial Equipment Mechanics juniors and Mason Bremke (right) with the Case IH Magnum 300 tractor.
Lorain County JVS students in the Industrial Equipment Mechanics program have an exceptional opportunity to be trained on a hi-tech piece of agriculture equipment, thanks to the partnership
and generosity of the Wellington Implement Company. Tom Stannard, president and general manager of Wellington Implement, delivered a Case IH Magnum 310 tractor to the Lorain County JVS
Industrial Equipment Mechanic students. “Obviously the school can’t afford to go out and buy brand new equipment every year, so with the partnership with Case IH, they allow us to place equip-
ment like this in programs like this one so the students can get familiar with some of the newer equipment,” said Stannard.
Along with the donation itself, Wellington Implement sends employees to Lorain County JVS a few times throughout the school year to work one-on-one with the students and help familiarize
them with the piece of equipment. According to Stannard, there are several things for students to learn about on this tractor. “There are a lot of different systems on it; electrical, hydraulic, emissions,
the technology part, and so we hope the students spend time with each part so when they do go out on that job interview, they are able to really talk the talk.”
“This partnership is important to my business also because we hope some of these students will come work for us one day, and the more exposure they have to the newer technology, the better
it is for us all.”
Mason Bremke, Lorain County JVS Industrial Equipment Mechanics Instructor and 2011 graduate of the same program, looks forward to this donation each year. “It is so important that our
students learn on the equipment that is currently out there in the real world, and this piece of equipment shows them the exact types of things that are coming into the shops to be worked on.”
Morgan Eid, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior, shared what he thought about the donation. “I’m honestly not too familiar with tractors, so this is new to me and I’m really excited to work
on it.”
“The tractor is valued at over $400,000 and represents the very cutting edge of farm equipment technology, complete with GPS autosteer, a new display and new cab from what has been seen
here in the past. There are no gears in the transmission, and it can go .1 MPH up to 30 and really, it’s just pretty cool,” Stannard said with a smile.
Bremke is thankful for this long-lasting partnership with this local company. “Every year Wellington Implement is so gracious to make this donation so that the students have the opportunity to
learn and work on the equipment for a little while and we are incredibly thankful.”
