Historical integrity honored in Hills and Dales estate

The fine details and craftsmanship found in a vintage home often give it a unique character, a sense that there is no other quite like it. For Judy Cebulko, it was one such detail that sold her and her husband, Ed, on their Georgian Baronial estate at 2601 Fox Hill Dr. NW in Hills and Dales.

Emotional attachment strong to former T.K.Harris, Koontz home

For seven years, Ed and Judy Cebulko have owned what is still known by many as the T.K. Harris home in Hills and Dales. Stark County natives and Central Catholic graduates, the Cebulkos split their time between this home and a second residence in a suburb of Las Vegas. Ed is co-owner of Vegas Fastener Manufacturing and G2 Gaming in Las Vegas.

The menu at The Brownstone is wide-ranging, from elegant entrees to pub grub. The disparity is by design, says general manager Adam Crookston.

Vintage homes show details that are quintessential to an era, linked to the past. They are experienced in their existence, and harbor memories that can be re-created and relived with just a little — or sometimes a lot — of tender care.

Since my first arrival in Canton in 1958, I found volunteer work to do. When my children were young, it involved their activities — P.T.A., church Sunday school teacher, etc. Our family had to move with my husband’s company, so each city I found volunteer work in their schools and teaching Sunday school, museum work.

Art inspired winning cocktail

A love of art is the reason behind the creation of the winning drink in the annual About magazine Signature Drink Competition. Neil Carpathios of Massillon wanted to honor artist Paul Gauguin with his drink, a tropical French margarita aptly named The Gauguin.
