Powell: Family business is growing in Monclova

Never think for one ear of sweet corn or a basket of tomatoes that the construction of a roundabout on Weckerly Road is keeping customers from Stevens Gardens. The Stevens family says with pride that their loyal customers are finding ways to skirt the construction and business is brisk. The gardens are currently known for Ohio seasonal produce, and are just as popular for vegetables, pumpkins, a corn maze, and all the other things that spell autumn in the Heartland. Stevens is one of those family-owned roadside businesses where the public is invited to soak up the season while selecting the vegetables that somehow taste better than those grown anywhere else. I came home with sweet corn, green peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, and peaches. Joe Stevens turned the business over to two of his four daughters and their husbands in 2004, but he is still very much present on the farm. Now he has time to pursue his hobby of trapping the wild animals that are prevalent and hungry for the farm crops. And in the case of coyotes, hungry for cats, Joe says.

Purging the pain: Adherents tout the benefits of trauma informed yoga

The cacophony of Monroe Street is dimmed upon crossing the threshold of glass separating the outside world from the internal safety of a room where Karen Hover, a Trauma informed Yoga instructor, holds a class for those with a history of addiction. The silence itself is sobering in a room where students sit with mats on the floor, and the lights taper off as students are invited to turn inward. “You just shut off everything around you,” said Ashley Amaya, 33, of West Toledo, who started going to Yoga classes led by Ms Hover about six months ago as part of a rehabilitation program. Once a week students like Ms. Amaya are welcomed to sit with themselves, with their bodies and to literally catch their breathe.

Harbor Town Tavern is not your average sports bar

What do you think when you think of a sports bar? Rowdy football fans? Clinking bar glasses? Greasy chicken chunks? That’s not Harbor Town Tavern. And that’s how it stands out from the crowd of sports bars in the area. This venue opened earlier this year in a former Jed’s in the Harbor Town Place development in Perrysburg. Surrounded by businesses and residences, the location feels a bit more secluded than I would have expected.
