WWII friends reunited — Page 2 Barretts mark 35th anniversary — Page Amherst News-Time Wednesday, October 22, 1997 Amherst, Ohio Hamilton Street to be rezoned as residential for renovations by GLEN MILLER News-Times reporter People living on Hamilton Street on the city's west side may soon I find themselves in a residentially zoned neighborhood for first time in more than a decade. The street has been zoned industrial for at least 20 years even though it has homes built on it with the exception of two lots abutting Milan Avenue. By early November, city council intends to hold a third reading on an ordinance that will rezone the street residential. The first reading was unanimously approved Oct 13. The current zoning has proven to be a hassle for people who want to build an addition or make major renovations. In order to comply wilh building regulations, mayor John Higgins said they have had to seek a variance to build in the industrial zone. "We just thought this was ridiculous, time consuming and expensive given the fact it (Hamilton Street) is nearly all houses anyway," he added. "This should have been done years ago because it really is not practical.*' There has been little concern about the zoning until recently because most of Hamilton used lo be nothing more than vacant lots. That has been changed within the last five or six years by the city's building boom, he added. Higgins said the decision to re- zone the street was prompted by an inquiry to the planning commission from a man who thought it odd to seek a variance to build a new home there. "It's illogical. Besides, we don't feel there's enough land left on it that's suitable to build an industry on anyway," he explained. The only questions about the re- zoning came from Tcrese Meyer, who recently purchased a home at 138 Hamilton St. because the area was zoned industrial.

Tribe fever: it's fit for man, beast and cookies Louie lives a life of luxury in his Forde Avenue home by APRIL MILLER News-Tirrcfs reporter Tribe fever — it's everywhere. From loddlcrs dressed in Chief Wahoo clothing lo chest- painted men at Jacobs Field, one thing is certain: the Indians are in the World Scries and everyone's a fan, even Louie the dog. At two years old and 95 pounds, Louie, an American bulldog, may look intimidating lo some. But when Louie's owner, Sharon Cosianiino, 722 Forde Ave., places a pair of Indians sunglasses on his nose, Louie becomes a laid-back, easy-going canine, who has a personality all his own and is fast becoming a Cleveland celebrity. "It's important to say Louie is not Lassie or Benji, but he is a character," Cosianiino said. "He thinks he's a human." Cosianiino has owned Louie for a year. She said he had always been used for breeding and had been kept in a cage. The first thing she did was get him out of lhe cage and give him some freedom. That freedom included traveling everywhere with his owner. While driving in lhe car one sunny day, Cosianiino decided lo put a pair of sunglasses on Louie to protect his eyes. Louie was unphascd and left lhe sunglasses on. Cosianiino said people driving by would look and smile as they saw a dog wearing glasses. A friend of Costantino's gave her a pair of Tribe sunglasses after seeing Louie was actually wearing shades. Il may have been the Indians sunglasses or Louie's personality which attracted attention in August when Cosianiino look Louie to the Cleveland Comedy Club lo try and sec Drew Carey.

Bakery cooks up some hot 3 stuff for Indians fanatics Baker Tim Kiedrowski pulls another pan of Tribe cookies from the oven. Win or lose, the Cleveland Indians' re-entry into the World Series is making a lot of sweet looths happy and keeping Tim Kiedrowski a busy man. Since early last week, the ovens at Kiedrowski's Simply Delicious Bakery on Cooper Fooler Park Road have been turning oul dozens upon dozens of Indians cookies. The cookies have Kiedrowski's own version of Chief Wahoo, the same design he has used since he started baking the special yummies in 1994. He can't use the Indians logo. Instead, his looks a lot like the Chief Wahoo that was worn by players during the 1948 World Series. At least 30,000 cookies have been baked within the last two years, including 21,000 when the Tribe weni to the World Series in 1995. t Even through they cost $1 a piece, he said ihe cookies are selling like hot cakes and are be ing shipped by local fans to relocated Indians followers as far away as California and Texas. Some even have been sent to Flordia — Tampa Bay but not Miami, and can be found in the Indians' executive offices at Jacobs Field. That's not surprising, though. "We have a little bit of an 'in' because we do the baking at the (corporate) suites at Jacobs Field and the Terrace Club," Kiedrowski explained. "It definitely helps." The Amherst bakery also got another feather in its cap'when it baked a special cake for the All-. Slar game played in July at the stadium. It got favorable reaction from Tribe owner Dick Jacobs. This year's run on the bakery's cookies began within minutes after the Tribe knocked off the Baltimore Orioles and is continuing. CONTINUED on page 3 \
