Memorial tree planted for trooper killed in line of duty
Amherst Girl Scout Troop 50410 held a small ceremony at the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Elyria post Monday that reflected on this duality through the planting of a magnolia tree in honor of Trooper Kenneth Velez.
Velez died on Interstate 90 in September after police said he was hit by a car driven by Joshua Gaspar of Columbia Station. Gaspar has been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide.

The four girls present for the planting ceremony spoke about how planting the tree was a part of earning their tree badge and how they had selected it from the Holden Arboretum.
But the small ceremony was meaningful in a deeper sense for the small troop of eight girls, because a niece of Velez, Brooke Bratovich, was once part of their troop.
The girls, who remain friends with Brooke, were saddened to learn she had lost an uncle. They decided that as part of earning their tree badge they wanted to honor Velez with a symbol of life which will grow over time.
“It feels good to do this,” said Morgan Bosworth, 12.

100 Favorite Dishes: Hibiscus-Flower Tacos at Comal
Comal opened last month in the TAXI development in RiNo, with the dual missions of serving home-style Mexican cooking while giving Globeville and Elyria-Swansea residents career-oriented job training. The restaurant calls itself a heritage-food incubator, which means that menus shift regularly but always include recipes handed down from generation to generation. The lunch roster is kept short, with only a few selections each day, but you can always expect something tasty and from the heart.
Those selections include meatless offerings like these hibiscus-flower tacos, which come with refried beans and rice; add a cup of soup and the whole meal rings in at $10. Hibiscus flowers, called jamaica in Spanish, come in the form of dried petals typically used to make ruby-red agua fresca — which Comal also sells. But slow-cooked with chiles, onions and garlic, the flowers achieve a meaty texture and add a tangy flavor to the mix, which comes swaddled in housemade corn tortillas. The tacos are advertised as vegan, but if you eat dairy, a little crema and queso fresco make an excellent topper. Fresh salsa, a squeeze of lime and a few sprigs of cilantro add lively herbal notes and acidity.
Comal is open for lunch fr... (Westword)Feb 3, 2016
Gary Corcoran, Phoenix disability advocate, dies
He relearned to drive and to play pool sitting down and earned an associate degree in accounting at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. Battling the winters in Ohio grew to be too much for him, and he moved to Tempe in 1979. He went on to work for the Arizona Department of Revenue as a tax auditor in 1986, and traveled to the headquarters of companies across the country to review their books.
The extensive travel his job required propelled Corcoran into advocacy, his sister said.
"It wasn't like it is now," his sister said. "People who aren't in that situation don't see the barriers, but Gary did. I remember one time he was traveling and the airline wanted him to check his wheelchair, like you would with luggage, and wanted him to wait in his seat on the plane until they got the luggage out, which, you know, takes a long time.
"There were impractical rules, and he saw the need for change," Corcoran said.
Those experiences led him to volunteer with airlines and assisting in training their personnel on how to do safe transfers for wheelchair users, his sister said.
"It was that experience that lit the spark for Gary," said Barbara Melendez, a friend and mentor to Corcoran. "He wasn't just respected in the advocacy community, he was loved."
Involved with city of Phoenix
Corcoran worked with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to improve accessibility and later chaired the Phoenix Mayor's Commission on Disability Issues in 2002. He was also a member of the Phoenix Transit 2000 Steering Committee, Light Rail Accessibility Committee, City of Phoenix Citizen Transit Commission and City of Phoenix Design Advisory Board.
"He was so positive," Melendez said. "He had a great attitude, and in his meetings with other advocates and city workers, he always listened and tried to make something work. He had an ability to get things done and to find a way to make things work for people with disabilities and also for others."
Another friend and colleague who worked on multiple public committees with him, Judith Tunell, said the light rail would not be as user-friendly for people with disabilities had it not been for Corcoran. Tunell said Corcoran pushed for as much accessibility as possible on buses and the light rail, calling for wider ramps to accommodate all wheelchair sizes and types.
"It's so easy to get on and off the light rail for people with disabilities," Tunell said. "Gary played a role in that. He served on more public-quality committees than anyone I know," adding later that, "What I love to say about him is that he was the kind of man that cared about people he didn't know, and that's incredible."

Food stamp fraud case tossed
ELYRIA — A county judge has thrown out the case against the owner of Cakes, Candy and Flowers, who had been accused of food stamp fraud.
The theft charge against Kitty Meszes and her Elyria store was dismissed by Lorain County Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi after the prosecution rested its case against her during her trial Wednesday. Miraldi ruled that, even looking at the case in a way that favored prosecutors, there wasn’t enough evidence of criminal conduct to allow the trial to continue.
Elyria police and agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit raided Cakes, Candy and Flowers in April 2013 as part of an investigation into Shopway food mart, located nearby on Lake Avenue, and its owner, Thaer Mustafa, who still faces drug trafficking and other charges in the case.
Assistant County Prosecutor Peter Gauthier argued during the trial that Mustafa would send customers who wanted to use their food stamp cards, also known as EBT cards, to get cash, drugs or other nonfood it... (Chronicle-Telegram)Jan 8, 2016
