    Does anyone remember Glaris Hardware store on Belmont Ave. across from the Avalon Beergarten? I think Mr. Glaris was Greek…his sisters worked there with him, my father used to get our cars licensed plates there…Mr. Glaris always had OHIO #00000 hanging on the wall.

    I read the commentary by Dr. Gus Mavrigian, and found it very interesting. Dr. Mavrigian must be the professor of mathematics that I had at Youngstown (now State) University years ago. One of the very best teachers I ever had.

    And I find the Greek community/culture to be a great and enlightened people.
