Daylight saving time is a waste of time By Rocco Castellano Right off the bat, I have to tell you I hate daylight saving time. I really wish one of the idiot government officials we have doing nothing would put together a bill banning it. We have daylight in the summer until almost 10 p.m., […]

A new frontier By Marsha Bonhart It’s a loss to gain. That is a convoluted statement that I will explain. One of the world’s most renowned medical facilities and research centers is in northeast Ohio. It has the reputation of creating groundbreaking achievements that have saved and improved lives by pushing the envelope in medical […]

And not a drop you drink By Marsha Bonhart I was in third grade when I started snooping in my older sister’s high school literature books. I had all I needed with Dick and Jane, Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, the girl with the crazy braids and freckles (what’s her face—ah, yeah, Pippy Longstocking). Then there was […]

My personal orthorexia By Rocco Castellano Last week, I reminisced about the past year of writing my column for Dayton City Paper. In that issue I quoted a reader that was not quite a fan. In the reader’s quote they used the phrase my “personal orthorexia.” Now for all of you who don’t have a […]

Happy anniversary to me… By Rocco Castellano I begged and pleaded for the publisher of Dayton City Paper to put me on the cover for my one-year anniversary but I guess I’m just not good-looking enough … damn that David Beckham. So … it’s been a year this week that I’ve had the pleasure and […]

Of epidemic proportions By Marsha Bonhart  For the life of me, I don’t know how the month got this far and I didn’t address it. Especially since it is so personal in so many ways. November is American Diabetes Month. This is when even more attention is drawn to a disease that in this country […]

The slower seasons By Marsha Bonhart I have a friend whom I adore. I don’t always understand her, but she’s my friend, regardless. Isn’t that how real friendship works? I accept her quirks with a shoulder shrug, but there is one subject upon which I draw the line and which I just cannot discuss with […]

Who the hell is Tony Zale anyway? By Rocco Castellano Photo: Boxer Tony Zale knocks Rocky Graziano to the ground Normally I discuss the idiocy of our society’s ignorance of dieting and fitness related matters. Today I’m venturing off into slightly uncharted territory. Well, not really, but it seemed like a good lead in. I’m […]

If we really got back to nature By Rocco Castellano One of my favorite things to do is “blow” shit up. I don’t mean throw a grenade under a car, put an M-80 in a trash can “blow shit up.” I mean blow up lies, urban legends or misconceptions that have plagued us for years. […]

Are we ‘meating’ cancer? By Marsha Bonhart It arrives through my front door mail slot faithfully each week. Like an obedient pet, I often take it for granted, not paying it much attention at first because its delivery is so loyal. Usually, I only glance and get back to it in a day or so. […]

A tough cell By Marsha Bonhart “You have lung cancer.” It’s one of the most dreaded phrases in a diagnosis. Five years ago, Kathleen Fennig of Beavercreek got that message. “A non-smoking relative was diagnosed with lung cancer and because I had been a smoker, I wanted to be screened,” she said. That was one […]

The truth about your ‘natural’ diet By Rocco Castellano When people hear the term GMO I’m not sure they understand what an actual GMO is. For years, a certain segment of the population has been on a terror streak to stop what they call “Frankenfood.” For the most part, I’m with them when it comes […]

Holy CrossFit, Batman By Rocco Castellano This is the first time I am coming out against CrossFit. Many of the business clients I coach are CrossFit studio owners and many fans of mine are CrossFit participants. Normally, I believe that any kind of movement is good for you, but, recently, I have seen too much […]

 The gland that rules By Marsha Bonhart It’s shaped like a butterfly, but if it’s out of order, it can sting like a bee. The right and left lobes create its wings, and the other element of that grouping is cone-shaped. All three of those parts rest against and around the trachea and larynx. At […]

One flu over the cuckoo’s nest By Marsha Bonhart Being hit by a truck is not the way I want to leave this world, but my sister insists because I am never sick, something traumatic will happen to me. Not a pleasant thought, but I understand what she is saying. I caught a cold last […]

Are you skinny fat? By Rocco Castellano I see them and hear from these kinds of people all the time. I know it seems like an oxymoron or just plain moronic but there really are skinny-fat people out there. Years back, I started writing a book called, “Fat People are Stupid… Then They Die.” It […]
