L to R: Harold Omer, Ray Danner and Lee Cummings. Danner was the owner of Shoney’s, which at the time owned the Famous Recipe franchise.
The founding of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken.
Lee Cummings, the nephew of Colonel Harland Sanders, spent his childhood in the kitchen of his Henryville, Indiana home. Lee hit the road with his Uncle Harland in 1952, selling their own special blend of spices along with their famous pressure cookers, which later became part of KFC’s “secret Recipe”. In three years, Lee and the Colonel opened over 800 KFC stores. In 1962, the Colonel sold KFC to John Y. Brown.
After the sale of KFC, Lee Cummings started developing his recipe later to be known as “Famous Recipe.” In 1966, Lee along with Harold Omer started “Harold’s Take-Home” in Lima, Ohio where Lee first introduced Famous Recipe Chicken.
By 1967, Lee and Bob Burick in Springfield, Ohio opened the fifth franchise store. Later that year, stores followed in Dayton and Cincinnati as well as in Michigan.
In 1972, Famous Recipe had 100 stores and by 1979 the number had doubled to 200. In 1981, Lee Cummings sold the chain to Shoney’s Restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee and in 1995, it was sold to RTM Restaurant Group in Atlanta, Georgia.
Locally, there are two major franchisees in the Miami Valley that keep the tradition of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken in the community.
Harold Omer was also a manager of aerospace engineering at Lima’s Westinghouse plant. Sometimes he would leave the office and go straight to his second job of frying chicken.
Harold K. Omer died in 1999. He is located in Section 100 of the Woodland Mausoleum.

Frederick H. Euchenhofer was born in Switzerland about 1812 and came to American when twenty years old. For a few years he lived in one of the eastern states and then moved to Miamisburg in 1836. Frederick opened a bakery and confectionery store there, running a successful business until 1848, when he came to Dayton. He purchased the old Columbus House and ran it as a hotel until 1863.
In 1861, Frederick opened the Third Street Lager Beer Brewery on 1513 East Third Street. The brewery was made of brick, two stories high and had a cellar. In addition, there were three individual cellars, separate from the main building that were capable of storing 1,200 barrels. The brewery was bought by Miller and Ritzler in 1867, but Euchenhofer rebought the brewery five years later.
Frederick later changed the name of the brewery to Third Street Brewery about 1887. In 1888, over 3,500 barrels were being produced each year, most of them being consumed in the home. The annual trade for that year was in excess of $25,000.
Frederick was a charter member of, and a director in, the Teutonia Insurance Company of Dayton, which was one of the most successful financial institutions in the city. Fraternally, Frederick was an Odd Fellow and a member of the Harugari. The German Order of Harugari, sometimes called the Ancient Order of Harugari or by its German name, Der Deutsche Orden der Harugari, was a mutual benefit and cultural association of German Americans founded in New York City in 1847 that was at one time the largest German secret society in the United States. The objectives were mutual protection in a time of high German immigration and anti-German sentiment in the U.S., and preservation of German language and culture. The order forbade discussion of religion, politics, or social issues. The name Harugari comes from the old German word Haruc. It may be roughly translated as “The Teutonic spirit (or priest) of the oak tree.”
Frederick was a Lutheran and in politics a Republican. He was married twice. His only child from the first marriage, Albert, died in February, 1892. His second marriage was to Caroline Disher. They were married in Dayton and had ten children.
Frederick H. Euchenhofer died on February 3, 1891. Caroline died on November 22, 1938. They are located in Section 103 Lot 1619.
Otto Frederick Euchenhofer was born about 1857 in Dayton, Ohio. He belonged to the St. Luke’s German Lutheran Church. He was the father of four children.
Otto Euchenhofer took over the Third Street Brewery on 1513 East Third Street in 1892 and changed the name to Third Street Ale Brewery. Unfortunately, records show that the brewery slipped in business under Otto’s management. By 1895, the brewery’s yield was only 1,000 barrels, down from 4,000 in 1890. He sold the business to Henry B. Pruden and Peter J. Altherr in 1896.
Otto Frederick Euchenhofer died on May 20, 1912. He is located in Section 103 Lot 1619.
Local Fricker’s restaurants are betting you want to see some UFC action this Saturday. They have loaded up on pay per view buys and are showing the closed circuit fight for free at area eateries.
The reason? This Satuday October 6th’s at 10pm Eastern time fight between the well-known Conor McGregor and the favored Khabib Nurmagomedov, is being billed as the biggest UFC fight in history, so far.
And Fricker’s Restaurants are banking you want to eat some wings, while seeing someone get a chicken wing submission move. UFC brass says they expect close to 3 million pay per view buys, a new record.
AT STAKE : Undefeated champ Khabob Nurmagomedov’s UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Hatred between the two fighters boiled over this spring, when Khalib’s camp confronted McGregor’s sparring partner, sparking a tirade by McGregor where he hurled objects at Khalil’s Tour bus. It causing smashed windows and injuries on the bus. The result was charges being brought up against McGregor, who settled on community service and anger management classes. Even the fan bases don’t like each other.
This difference in styles will make for a fascinating fight
Fast forward to last month’s press conferences. The press conferences and the hype for this fight have gone like a typical McGregor bout. Conor has done most of the talking, ripping his opponents appearance and quirks, while threatening to dismantle him in a violent way. Meanwhile the more polite Nurmagomedov, a Russian who has been a trained fighter from an early age has been mostly quiet. Although he hasn’t responded much to the personal attacks,, Khabib Nurmagomedov is known as one of the most ruthless, aggressive MMA fighters on planet.
Below is the tale of the tape on this clash. Should be a pretty frickin’ good fight ….
TALE OF THE TAPE:
Since they were toddlers they had an interest in playing tennis, one of their dad’s passions. Their father Greg Milano plans on coaching Beavercreek High Schools Boys Tennis Team this year, as well as working as an assistant coach for Wright State Women’s tennis. He was a tennis star in his own right, and was a 7 time Greene County Mens Singles Tennis Champion and gained a 4 year scholarship for tennis at Wright State in 1979.
Today, his daughters, Wittenberg Senior Carli Milano and Wright State Sophomore Jillian Milano, look to wreak havoc on their college tennis opponents. The sisters are Beavercreek, Ohio natives and both Carroll High School graduates. They are also honor students who have thrived at the college level, allowing them not only athletic but academic scholarships awards as well. Tennis season has just started and you can find the Wittenberg Women’s Tennis Schedule HERE and the Wright State Women’s Tennis Schedule HERE.
The girls have tremendous family support, not only from their parents Fran and Greg (Wright State Alums), but grandparents Jerry and Joann who attend many matches as they approach their 90’s.
WHO ARE THESE TENNIS SISTERS?
Carli, the Wittenberg Tiger, is the school’s #1 Singles player, facing the best from each and every Division III college they play. She has traveled as far away as Orlando, Florida for college tournament matches, and has pulled some stunning upsets. Carli has definitely left her mark on the college tennis scene. She was the conference player of the week Feb 19, 2018. Carli was the one Wittenberg Tennis player who was highlighted on the All-North Coast Athletic Conference team this spring, earning honorable mention at the first singles position. This is the second time Carli has earned an All-NCAC selection, claiming honorable mention honors in 2017.
Carli’s goals are to improve her win-loss record in her final year. Known for her never say die attitude, her play is a lesson in perseverance, which allows her to outlast many foes. The Wittenberg Women’s Tennis season is underway and the next match is Oct 6 vs Oberlin College. After graduation, Carli is planning to pursue a school psychologist position.
Jillian, The Wright State Raider, had been playing tennis at the #5 singles position at the Division I level in her freshman year. She came onto the team being ranked 137th in the nation in singles and 4th in the state of Ohio. Jillian now travels across the region playing colleges in the Horizon League and beyond. Her next test is Sept 28th when Wright State takes on Big 10 team Purdue.
Jillian, looks to move up in the ranks to the #3 or #4 position. Last year she had a successful freshman season posting a 24-16 overall singles record, going 7-2 against Horizon League opponents. She also had a 16-12 doubles record. Although she has dealt with a couple of injuries, she has not slowed down or lost any of her aggressive play. Known for her speed and smashing ground strokes, she was able to surprise and beat many opponents who were ranked well above her, and nationally known. Jillian’s sophomore year promises more success.
Sister’s Teams Scheduled to Clash:
As fate would have it , Wittenberg is scheduled to face a favored Wright State womens tennis team on April 14th, 2019. Although it is unlikely that the Milano sisters will play each other in singles, they may face each other in a set of doubles. For mom, Fran Milano, this will be a weekend she will dread. The nerves associated with her daughters playing each other is not something she enjoys. The match will take place in Springboro at the South Regency Tennis Center, which is Wright State’s home court.
Whether they win or lose that inter-family match, Carli and Jillian will definitely boost the local college tennis scene this year.
