Summer 2021–Restoration and Renewal

Summer 2021–Restoration and Renewal

June 9, 2021

In this episode we feature two stories of historic restorations. They standout among restoration stories because of the extraordinary circumstance involved and the many community members who worked together for years to make it all happen. 

First you will hear about perfectly restored carousel in Pottstown PA. A labor of love that has lasted nearly 15 years has resulted in a world class attraction and a lot of community pride. After reading about the Pottstown carousel in Preservation magazine, writer Stephanie Kalina-Metzger realized something special about this particular restoration project.

Stephanie did a lot of research and spoke at length with Alain McBain, one of the many volunteers involved with the carousel. She describes for us how they recreated the carousel from the ground up.

We also share with you the incredible story of the East Broad Top Railroad in Huntingdon County. Writer Darrin Youker, tells us about this railroad restoration project happening in our region. Thanks to one family and a lot of volunteers, over 30 miles of history has been preserved.

Jonathan Smith, the director of sales and marketing of this very special excursion train, grew up in Colorado, and from the age of 11 has volunteered and worked on the tourist train that went right past his house. Once he learned about the East Broad Top Railroad in Central Pennsylvania, his dream was to be part of the full restoration project.  He tells us, “The East Broad Top is sort of a  mythical thing in the railroad industry, untouched representation of industrial America. 

As the world opens up after the long Pandemic lock down, I will share with you highlights of  special events happening this summer in the Susquehanna Valley. And with people heading back to restaurants, we feature one that not only offers fine food but their own craft beer.

Spring 2021—Renewal and Rejuvenation

Spring 2021—Renewal and Rejuvenation

March 20, 2021

After a particularly cold, snowy, and difficult winter, it is time for renewal and rejuvenation. The Spring 2021 issue of Susquehanna Life Magazine provides multiple stories and features that will motivate you to get outdoors into the woods and the garden. This episode expands on some of the stories in our magazine. You will also from an experienced educator sharing insider tips for educating children outdoors. A master gardener will tell you everything you need to know to grow your own herbs for teas and herbal infusions.

The Lewisburg Pod School

After seeing their children struggle with remote learning at the start of the Coronavirus Global Pandemic, five families decided to pool their resources and started modern day one-room school house. They call it The Lewisburg Pod School.

The students range in ages from 6 to 14 years old. With the help of a very creative teacher, they created a safe learning community during this very long Coronavirus pandemic. Every Wednesday the students and the teacher head into the woods for a full day of learning and play. Through fall, winter, and now in the spring, you will find them exploring the forest. In this episode we hear from Jenn Boyunegmez, the teacher,  Elizabeth Durden, a parent and Gabriel, a six-year old student in the Pod School.

Planting an Herb Garden and Infusing Your Own Infusions and Teas

rica Jo Shaffer has a storehouse of knowledge to share with those with experience and little to know experience planting and tending a garden. In a recent conversation about her Garden Shed article, Erica answers my many questions about growing herbs and using them to make homemade herbal infusions and tea.  Host, Peterson Toscano, peppers Erica with questions about seeds versus seedlings, pots versus growing in the ground, and what to do with friends who claim they simply do not have a green thumb. Erica also reveals the wonders of dandelions and stinging nettles.

Behind the Scenes Look at Susquehanna Life Magazine’s Design

When perusing a magazine listening to a podcast, we can become immersed in a world, but most of us are usually unaware of all the techniques and design elements that make it work. In this episode we pull back the curtain for you and introduce you to one of the people who make the magic happen at Susquehanna Life Magazine—Simone Tieber. Growing up in East Germany, Simone turned to art to comfort her during a turbulent childhood. Later in university the only way she could continue her art career though was to be an active member in the Communist party. She refused and forged her own path.

Now as a graphic designer splitting her time between the USA and Germany, she has been responsible for designing the magazine that accompanies the Grammy Awards and the American Country Music Awards along with many travel, food, and university publications. Still working on each issue of Susquehanna Life Magazine is some of Simone’s favorite design work.

Host Peterson Toscano chats with Susquehanna Life publisher, Erica Shames about the Spring 2021 issue. Peterson also shares highlights including strategies for coping with the Coronavirus Pandemic, comfort foods, and more.

Winter 2020 — The Riches of Kindness

Winter 2020 — The Riches of Kindness

November 18, 2020
  • “The Riches of Kindness”

    Doris Lessing in her novel, The Golden Notebook, writes,

    “Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who'd be kind to me. That's what people really want, if they're telling the truth.”

    Kindness. It doesn’t have the pizazz that comes from fame and fortune. There is something gentle and unassuming about it. Still in small and large ways it is often life changing.

    Erica Shames, founder and publisher of Susquehanna Life Magazine speaks with her podcast co-host, Peterson Toscano, about the contents of the Winter 2020 issue of the magazine. In preparing the issue, kindness emerged as a strong theme. It is so strong that Erica plans on weaving the theme of kindness into the magazine and podcast throughout 2021. 

    So in a time when there is a lot of strife in the world, how do we promote more kindness?

    To find out Susquehanna Life Out Loud co-host, Peterson Toscano, chats with Joanne Troutman, the President and CEO of the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way. She tells us about wildly successful Kindness Campaign that United Way helped organized earlier this year. She also reveals bigger plans for the 2021 Kindness Campaign. Follow them on Facebook.

    Dr. Mel Zimmerman from the Lycoming College Clean Water Institute, updates us about the Susquehanna River and the many creeks and streams in the region. Dr. Zimmerman is featured in Darrin Youker’s article in the 2020 issue of Susquehanna Life Magazine. Dr. Zimmerman also shares ways you can show some kindness to the Susquehanna River and area water ways. You can follow the Clean Water Institute on their Facebook Page

    In anticipation of her 50th birthday Karen Hendricks decided to try something completely different. An avid runner, she signed up to run 50 races for 50 different causes. Susan Ryder writes about Karen’s year-long celebration in the Winter 2020 issue of Susquehanna Life Magazine. Peterson Toscano chats with Karen to find out more about her adventure, what she learned, where she ran, and how the Covid-19 Global Pandemic interrupted but did not deter her plans.

    Karen blogs about each of the 50 races and each charity they races benefited. She is also the host of The Burg podcast.

Fall 2020 — The Past Shall Guide Us

Fall 2020 — The Past Shall Guide Us

September 3, 2020

Autumn is a reflective time for many people. The various fragrances of the season including the aroma of pumpkin spice treats or the earthy smell of a leaf pile, immediately stir up memories. In speaking to residents about what they remember of the fall of 1972, Andrew Stuhl, an associate professor of environmental studies and sciences at Bucknell University, learned about the powerful smell of flood mud. This was the pungent odor throughout the Susquehanna Valley after Hurricane Agnes brought historic rainfalls and a massive flood which upended lives and reshaped towns and waterways.

“It reminds me of the connection between smell and memory, and how quickly a memory can come back to you if you smell something in the present day,” Andrew tells podcast co-host, Peterson Toscano. "I like to think about that as a metaphor for the importance of history and the importance of moments like Hurricane Agnes. They’re always with us, and sometimes they don’t come to our immediate senses, but they can be triggered, and they can be brought up really quickly. I like to believe in the power of memory and history, to mine those experiences, to reflect on them, and recognize and regard them, so we that can walk today in the difficult moments, and get through them.”

Andrew talks about his community-based research, the Agnes Flood Project. You will learn why this one storm is still so important, not just for the region, but for the entire country. Lessons drawn from 1972 and the resiliency modeled by local residents during and after the storm will help us in coping and caring for each other during the Coronavirus Pandemic and with the growing risks of climate change.

If you or someone you know have Hurricane Agnes stories to share for the Agnes Flood project, contact Andrew Stuhl and the team. They are also looking for pictures from the hurricane and its aftermath. Email agnesrevisited@gmail.com

Elizabeth Wislar lived in Williamsport for five years. She recently moved, but finds herself thinking a lot about the city and its inhabitants—the current ones and those who lived here long ago. These include once wealthy lumber barons and the indigenous people before them who once lived along the river. Elizabeth is mixed blood—Lenape and Choctaw, and she is a registered member of the Cherokee Nation. She hopes the curiosity she has about Native history in the region will be contagious.

Looking over the Susquehanna River at Williamsport, she wondered about the original inhabitants and the history too often hidden from view. She says, “I just couldn’t help but feel an absolute absence and erasure every time I walked on the River Walk. I would really like more people to understand what happened there—to the land, to the trees, to the people. An enormous amount of trauma happened in that area.”

Elizabeth shares what she has discovered about the Susquehannock and the Lenape who inhabited the region. She speaks about the violence the European settlers and the leaders of the newly formed United States perpetuated against the people and the land. She unearths for us stories of the lumber barons who made and then lost fortunes in the city. She also invites current residents to join in on the conversation about this history. Elizabeth believes it will be a healing process, one filled with essential lessons needed to keep us from repeating history.

Also in this episode, Erica Shames, founder and publisher of Susquehanna Life Magazine, shares a delicious socially distanced lunch with co-host Peterson Toscano. They meet up in the new outdoor patio at Elizabeth’s An American Bistro. Eavesdrop on their conversation to discover what all the buzz is about.

Plus Peterson shares new features in the magazine and the perfect treat to bake this fall.

Summer 2020–Making Waves

Summer 2020–Making Waves

June 3, 2020

Erica Shames, founder and publisher of Susquehanna Life Magazine, initially had doubts about releasing the Summer 2020 issue. She recognized the disruption the Coronavirus lockdown caused for advertisers and for businesses that sold the magazine. Then she began to hear from readers and subscribers who expressed how important the magazine has been for them. In this episode of Susquehanna Life Out Loud podcast Erica explains to her co-host Peterson Toscano, "We have a role to play here," and that is to uplift and to provide a positive way to look at the region and at life. We also give readers information to make their lives more enjoyable.

In the Summer 2020 edition of the magazine, Jennifer Pencek writes about a group of women who are breaking ground by getting into the water. In our show, Jennifer chats with Peterson Toscano about the growing fly fishing phenomenon drawing women in the region to the sport. The is in large part due to the work of the Women, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.  

The committee is the result of partnerships with the state Fish and Boat Commission, Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited, and local organizations with the shared goal to connect diverse populations to fly fishing and waterway conservation efforts. They offer a special training program: Intro to Fly Fishing for Women.  As a result of working on this story, Jennifer sees a wonderful connection between people who enjoy outdoor activities and their efforts to conserve the wild spaces they love. 

Fly fishing enthusiast, Jamie SanFillipo, trains guides people in the sport through her own business, The American Fly Fishing Company. She explains the many benefits and joys of fly fishing, as she outlines the basics a beginner will need to get started. She answers questions about the cost of the sport, safety when fishing alone, and even where you can borrow free equipment. Both Jennifer Pencek and Jamie SanFilippo outline factors that have kept women and girls from taking up outdoor sports like fishing. They also tell us what we can do to foster gender diversity and equity in the great outdoors. 

Kendra Aucker, President and CEO of Evangelical Community Hospital in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania chats with Peterson Toscano about the Covid-19 pandemic and what we can do to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and fellow community members. She stresses the importance of wearing masks as part of the overall plan. Like everyone else, her life has been turned upside down by the lockdown, and she shares some of her own strategies for when she hasn’t been able to go out and see family and friends. She also tells us about her favorite Corona comfort foods. 

Food lovers will learn about two opportunities to sample authentic dishes. You will hear about Kavkaz Restaurant, a truck stop off I-80 in Logantown, PA close to Jersey Shore. They specialize in preparing food from the Caucasus region including Georgian, Armenian, and Russian cuisine. What do they offer?  Homemade Khachapuri bread, which you can get with melted cheese and an egg in the center. They have stews and soup, including the most hearty borscht you may ever encounter. Meatballs with homemade mash potatoes is a favorite with the many people who left positive reviews on Yelp. They also serve Greek salad and various potato and vegetable dishes.

In Sunbury, PA, writer Glen Retief, associate professor of creative writing at Susquehanna University, celebrates a local delicacy and tells us all about the annual Sunbury Sandwich Stroll organized by Sunbury Revitalization Inc. In addition to explaining how the sandwich stroll works, and how it has been received, Glen also reveals the peculiar incident that led up to the popular event.

Almost four years ago our host, Peterson Toscano, a resident out on an early morning walk, saw that someone plastered Sunbury's Market Street with racist and anti-immigrate posters. The posters warned that Sunbury residents were being replaced by outsiders. Peterson spent the next few days walking around town wondering what Sunbury residents value and that we can boost and share with others. Turns out the sandwich, in one form or another, is king in Sunbury with nearly 20 shops within walking distance. Peterson's reflections led to the wildly successful sandwich stroll. The third annual Sandwich Stroll is scheduled for June 27. Check the Sunbury Revitalization Facebook page for the latest information.    

From the Toscano family recipe files Peterson shares Mom's Homemade Raw Tomato Sauce. Hear about an absolutely delicious dish that is incredibly easy to make.

Susquehanna Life Out Loud Premieres

February 26, 2020

Host Peterson Toscano chats with Erica Shames about the Spring 2020 issue of Susquehanna Life Magazine

Reaching back into the archives, Peterson interviews author Glen Retief about his Spring 2013 article, 48 Hours in the Susquehanna Valley.

Imagine you have a friend visiting you in the Susquehanna Valley for the very first time. You only have two days to entertain this friend and show off the region. During those precious 48 hours what would you do with your visitor? Where would you go? What do we have in the Valley that might seem commonplace to us but may just be downright extraordinary to a first time visitor?

Writer Glen Retief, a professor at Susquehanna University, found himself in this situation. He hosted a childhood friend from his home country of South Africa. His friend, wild life painter, James Stroud, had never visited Pennsylvania before; Glen knew they were starting with a blank slate.

Learn about the hidden spots Glen has discovered which he shows off to James. Hear how James marvels over something he witnessed in the Pennsylvania woods that was completely exotic to him. Glen's love for the Susquehanna Valley will give you a new appreciation for the region.
