Just one meeting removed from the ICMA’s presentation of the significant findings of its comprehensive analysis of Public Safety operations in the city, the Council took immediate action Tuesday evening to implement an early retirement agreement for a senior member of the Fire Division. The agreement, established through a collaborative effort of the City Manager, Finance Director, Acting Fire Chief and law department, is projected to save the Fire Division’s budget $75,000 over the next two and a half years through the elimination of a fourth, unnecessary Captain’s salary. The Fire Division is organized into three full time shifts, each with a Captain. The anomaly of a fourth Captain’s salary was created in a 1997 disciplinary appeals process. The establishment of structural balance in both Public Safety Divisions was a key recommendation of the ICMA’s report. Tuesday’s retirement agreement is in addition to the city’s recent layoff of a Fire Lieutenant, for an inability to operate as an EMT, and the appointment of an Acting Chief from existing personnel in favor of the hiring of a new administrative employee. These actions are the first steps in accommodating key recommendations of the report and staff is devising new efficiencies to maintain, and improve, service delivery. The early retirement agreement was endorsed by the city’s Finance Committee, the I.A.F.F. Local 4168 and authorized by the Council in a 5 -1 vote. Despite the endorsements, recommendations of the ICMA and the near unanimous support of Council, Councilmember Julie Dively cast a dissenting vote and read a statement questioning good leadership, demanding efficiency, effectiveness and safety. Mayor Marilyn Shearer referenced Huron’s proactive approach to managing in difficult times as noted during the ICMA presentation. Consultant Tom Wieczorek described his experience in Huron as refreshing and noted in a majority of the communities he presents public safety concepts there is already a dire need to make changes immediately. He described Huron’s opportunity as a proactive approach to seamless improvement. In addition to a proactive public safety vision the city has recently established a progressive wellness health insurance program, greatly improved its financial condition and retained its bond rating, provided for a number of new capital improvements in excess of $1 million for 2009, become the first community in the state of Ohio to establish a biodegradable food scrap program, received several million dollars in grant awards including the ODNR public boat launch and established an economic development effort responsible for the sale of a majority of the corporate park acreage and introduction of approximately 100 new jobs and $4 million in new payroll in a challenging environment. While there is significant progressive development the Council and administration are united in their cautious approach to the unknown economic challenges ahead. The management of a municipal corporation is a work in progress, initial steps have been taken in 2009 and more are certain to follow.

HURON HOMETOWN NEWS | Thursday, March 12 , 2009

Around Town Thank You! In these troubled economic times, good news is always welcome. In these low economic times, the local Huron Salvation Army Service Unit conducted the yearly Red Kettle Campaign (bell ringing) in the months of November and December. We are happy to report, due to your generosity, we met our goal of $10,000. In 2008, we raised the same amount and ran out of funds near the end of our budget year—so be assured that your donations will not go to waste. This money will be used for the next 12 months to help the needy of the 44839 zip code with utility shutoffs, prescription drug help, a summer camp for a number of children, a one night hotel room for transients and gift cards at Christmas time for the elderly and area children. The $10,000 and other state and national grants will allow us to do much good for those in need. We are very grateful for all the giving the took place this year. We want to say a special thanks to Cornell Foods, our main bell ringing site, and Discount Drug Mart, our back-up site. The following community groups and organizations all rang the bell for the Salvation Army: Huron Police, Huron Lions Club, Huron Rotary Club, Christ Church Puppet Ministry, Huron Chamber of Commerce, Knights of Columbus, HHS Nation Honor Society, HHS Student Council, Huron Boy Scouts, Huron Girl Scouts, Zion Lutheran Church, Huron United Methodist, Lighthouse Assembly of God Church and Mark’s Masonic Lodge. The local Salvation Army has an office in Lighthouse Church, which is located at 820 Cleveland Road East in Huron. We work by scheduled appointments on each Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The phone number is 419-433-0500. Thanks to your generosity, we will again be helping those in need of the Huron area.

Gustovich, who has an office in Port Clinton, was recently honored by the Orthodontic Department of Case Western Reserve University with the “Educator of the Year” award. Dr. Gustovich has been a parttime faculty member for the Department of Orthodontics in the School of Dentistry for over twenty years. This award is voted on by the orthodontic graduate students, as well as the forty-two faculty members of the Orthodontic Department. Dr. Gustovich recently attended the Eighth Annual Damon Forum of Orthodontics in Phoenix, Arizona in January. Twelve hundred orthodontists attended this intense four-day seminar. Both basic and advanced Damon orthodontic techniques were presented. The Damon System is an innovative com-

The end result is clinically proven performance that includes faster treatment time, fewer appointments, improved patient comfort, exceptional results and wider arch development with fewer extractions. Dr. Gustovich is certified in the Damon System and teaches this orthodontic technique at Case Western Reserve University. He also has been selected by Dr. Damon and Ormco Corporation as one of ten Damon system instructors in the United States to teach this technique to other orthodontists.

So your 1040 is filed and you are now anxiously waiting for your refund. What do you plan on doing with it? Go on that long-awaited cruise, get a new set of golf clubs or buy that wide-screen TV you’ve had your eye on? There are so many ways you could spend your refund, but there may be better alternatives to consider. According to the Internal Revenue Service, over 75 percent of American taxpayers received a federal tax refund, with the average around $2,500. It’s what you do with your refund now that may create a better financial future for you and your family later on. Instead of spending your refund this year, consider funding an Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA), setting up a college savings fund for a child, or paying down credit card debt. These options will help to improve your financial situation. First on your list of priorities should be paying down any highinterest credit card debts you have incurred. By paying only the minimum each month, you may be paying just the interest (or less) on the debt and little or nothing towards the principal. Paying down the debt can free up additional money for other important financial needs. If debt is not a problem, your tax refund could provide you an excellent opportunity to fund an existing IRA or establish a new one. For the 2007 tax year, you can contribute up to $4,000 to an IRA. If you are 50 years or older by December 31, 2007,

you can add an additional $1000 to the account. Making a tax-deductible contribution to a Traditional IRA is an option if you are not participating in an employer-sponsored retirement plan or, if you are participating, your Adjusted Gross Income falls within eligibility guidelines. A Roth IRA may be a more appropriate choice, depending on your eligibility. Contributions to a Roth IRA are not tax deductible. However, qualified distributions are received free from federal income tax. Your refund could also be used to fund a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) or 529 Plan for your child. Contributions are not deductible, but withdrawals to pay qualified educational expenses are free from federal income tax. One thing to remember after you’ve decided the fate of this year’s refund: the check you received is not a windfall but the return of an interest-free loan you provided the government Regardless of the pleasure you may get from receiving a large check each tax year, adjusting the amount withheld by Uncle Sam to reduce the amount of future refunds may be an appropriate course. You may not get a refund in April, but there may be more in each paycheck to contribute to a Coverdell ESA, 529 plan, IRA or to pay down debt throughout the year. Take some time to consider your options before making the down payment on that cabin cruiser. The earlier you start saving for your future, the more you may have during your retirement. If you have questions about these options and others, you owe it to yourself to contact a financial services professional that you know and trust. Your financial future may depend on it.

Health & Wellness What’s Your Score? New Screening Adds It Up! Heart attacks often come with no warning. But CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring, a high-tech screening now being offered by the FTMC Snyder/White Heart & Vascular Center, may provide some advance notice of problems. In December, Fisher-Titus Medical Center and FTMC’s Chief of Radiology Dr. Matthew Gutowicz initiated the new screenings by providing Norwalk firefighters and police officers and Huron County law enforcement officers complimentary screenings. This non-invasive screening uses FTMC’s 64-slice CT scanner to locate and measure calcified plaque in coronary arteries – the vessels that take blood to the heart muscle. “Plaque can, over time, narrow the arteries or even close off blood flow to the heart muscle. By detecting it in the earliest, most treatable stage, patients and their physicians can take steps to reduce heart disease risk,” Dr. Gutowicz said.

Because the Calcium Scoring Screening is not useful for persons at low or high risk for heart disease, patients are pre-assessed using the American Heart Association Heart Attack Risk Assessor. If the assessment indicates an intermediate risk, the patient can be scheduled for the screening. The Calcium Scoring is performed on FTMC’s 64-slice CT. Because the scanner is so fast, it captures multiple images synchronized with the heart beat cycle, resulting in clear pictures of the heart and its vessels with minimal exposure to radiation. The actual scan takes only a few minutes. After the procedure the patient is able to leave and resume normal activities. Board Certified Radiologists Dr. Gutowicz and Dr. William Ferber read and interpret the scans. A registered nurse of the Snyder/White Heart & Vascular Center follows up with each patient to review the results. With this information, the patient’s physician can recommend appropriate treatment, including diet

FIrelands Names New Director, Medical Education and Family Practice Residency Firelands Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that Eric E.

FTMC Receives Trauma Center Status Fisher-Titus Medical Center was granted provisional status as a Level 3 Trauma Center by the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Public Safety on Monday, March 2. Currently, Fisher-Titus Medical Center is the only area hospital to have this designation. The provisional designation comes after a consultative site visit by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Trauma Subcommittee in January and the submission of a follow-up report to the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Department of Public Safety. A trauma center is a hospital which has the immediate availability of specialized surgeons, physician specialists, anesthesiologists, nurses, resuscitation and life support equipment, and operating rooms on a 24-hour-basis to care for severely injured patients. “The commitment of our general surgeons and anesthesiologists to be on-call 24/7, 365 days a year along with our highly skilled team of emergency physicians and emergency department staff was critical to earning this designation,” said Patrick J. Martin, president of Fisher-Titus Medical Center . “The team is backed by our top-notch ancillary support staff and the latest medical technology to provide residents in our community and service area with the highest quality emergency care possible.” “Trauma Centers are designated as Level 1 through Level 3,” said Dr. Eric Schmidt, a general surgeon, who chairs FTMC’s Trauma Committee and is medical director of FTMC’s Trauma Program. “The differences in levels are based on the depth of the resources available to treat the trauma victim. “Specifically, Level 3 trauma centers can provide prompt assessment, resuscitation,

emergency surgery, and stabilization and also arrange for possible transfer to a facility that can provide definitive trauma care,” Schmidt explained. The Ohio Trauma law establishes guidelines to identify trauma patients and selects appropriate transport destinations. The law establishes transfer guidelines between trauma centers and non-trauma hospitals effectively making Ohio an inclusive system wherein any trauma center verified by the American College of Surgeons can be a trauma transport destination. This assures patients are receiving the highest quality emergency care by experienced medical personnel. All centers form part of a system and work together to allow for care of mass casualties and times when one center is at risk of having its resources overwhelmed by patient load or through loss of physician manpower. “The effort to become a Level 3 Trauma Center took a tremendous commitment of resources by our board and medical staff,” said Martin. “This provisional status allows us to continue to provide services to patients who have historically been treated here. Without this designation, some patients would have needed to be transferred to trauma centers in Mansfield, Cleveland or Toledo .” Currently the closest trauma centers are in Sylvania to the north, Mansfield to the south, Westlake to the east, and Defiance to the west. FTMC is working to attain full verification by the American College of Surgeons in 2009. The American College of Surgeons does not designate trauma centers; instead, it sets the standards for verification and performs site visits. The designation as a Trauma Center , based upon ACS verification, is a function of the state of Ohio .

So the duffle bags and suitcases will be going to a great cause.

Have Your Pie and Eat it Too Saturday is Pi day, 3/14 and on March 13, the high school will celebrate Pi day (3.14).By definition, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi is always the same number, no matter which circle you use to compute it and it is a non-terminating and a non-repeating number. Pi is a very old number. We know that the Egyptians and the Babylonians knew about the existence of the constant ratio of Pi, although they didn’t know its value nearly as well as we do today. In honor of Pi day the high school math department hides the symbol for Pi

around the school (180 Pi symbols approximately). If a student finds a Pi symbol they are to report to a math teacher and trade it for a ticket. The students can also earn more tickets if they can recite Pi to twelve digits or more, or wear a Pi T-shirt, or make a poster for Pi, or recite the formula for the circumference & area of a circle or the volume of a cylinder. The tickets will be put in a canister for a drawing at the end of the day. Three pies, chocolate, banana cream, and an apple pie, from Berardi’s will be awarded to the three drawn ticket holders.

Sports The Tiger’s Basketball Season Concludes Huron loses Heartbreaker to Port Clinton, 50-54 BY CHRIS MISCHLER

Often times, coaches say it is difficult to play the same team three times in one season. The players really get to know one another’s tendencies well. Between Huron and Port Clinton, all three match-ups have been heated, hard fought games. Unfortunately, the Tigers have ended up on the losing end all three times. On this night, it occurred during the first round of sectional play at Norwalk High School. Huron come out of the gate trying to mix up their defenses a bit, while Port Clinton tried to press the Tigers early on. During the first half, the Redskin’s offense seemed to be settling for outside shots and was ice cold. The few Junior Brandon Poorman looks to take times that they were patient enough to the Redskin defender to the hole. PHOTO BY CHRIS MISHLER work it inside, Huron had trouble stopping them. Neither team could really get much going offensively in the first quarter. With :47 seconds left, Tiger senior Collin Scheid hit a field goal to give his team an 8-6 lead. The first half of the second period remained a defensive struggle with the two teams knotted in a 14-14 tie at the 3:45 mark. Thirty seconds later, a player for Port Clinton received a technical foul for what looked like an elbow thrown at Collin Scheid. This had the effect of getting the crowd from both teams into the game. The Tigers then proceeded on a 7 – 2 run led by three pointers from Scheid and junior Zach Grieves. PC rallied to tie the game at 21 a piece with 1:13 left in the first half. Huron came of a time out determined to run the clock down for one last shot. They succeeded when Eric Volz hit

that last shot for the Tigers with just one second left to lift his team to a 23 – 21 halftime lead. During the third quarter, Port Clinton began to find their outside shooting. Hence, they out scored Huron 15 – 10 to take 36 – 33 lead. While the scoring was slight early in the final period, Huron seemed to have built some momentum beginning with a last second Steve Bowers FG that closed the third quarter. At the 6:53 mark, Scheid made a hard drive under the Huron basket and found Grieves flashing to the hole for an exciting bucket. But as quickly as it came for the Tigers, Port Clinton hit two straight three pointers to grab a 42 – 35 lead. Many times during the season, this is where the Tigers might let the game get away. But, tonight, Scheid would rally Huron to just a 43-

42 deficit with 3:57 left in the game. For the remainder of the contest, the Redskins would go up by three or four then, first Volz and then Bowers would hit big three’s to keep the Tigers in the game. Part of Huron’s undoing snuck up on them in the middle of the fourth quarter when they hit the ten foul barrier while PC was no where near that. With 1:16 left, the Tiger’s last gasp came on a wonderful head fake move by Steve Bowers that completely fooled his man to bring Huron within one point for the final time, 50 – 51. Port Clinton would hit a few free throws the rest of the way to close out the game. The Tigers had three teammates with 10 or more points. Scheid led the way with 15 points while Grieves and Bowers had 11 and 10 points respectively.

Gardening Plan Now for Huron’s Bicentennial! MARY STRAYER, MASTER GARDENER

You are probably aware that Huron is celebrating it bicentennial this year, and that many activities are being planned. One thing that everyone can do to help is to plan to plant redwhite-and blue flowers in their yards and gardens this year. With the whole community cooperating, the entire city will be gorgeous. To make your focal point out of your patriotic floral statement, pick a particularly visible spot in the garden, such as the area around your mailbox, or in front/side of your home. It could be on the balcony, the deck that faces the street as well. Once you decide where you would like to put your colorful garden, use flower pots to mark the edges, and place an old sheet folded to the size of the plot in the area. Then take a walk around, and notice the angles that the public will be viewing your garden. Does it need to be moved to a better location? Is it going to be hidden by a shrub or wall/fence? Adjust the area to be planted

for optimum viewing, and then pick your design. Orderly bands of red/white/blue on each side of your front steps are easy to do, as are circles and big blocks on color. If you are planting in beds, make informal drifts or sweeps of the three colors to be effective. You could even mix 2 colors in the bed, and edge it with the third. Red white and blue flowers are easily found, and nearby greenhouses and nurseries will have an extra large stock of these colors for you this year. It’s a time of real celebration, and everyone is proud to be a part of it. You need to decide if you want all annuals which will die out this fall with the first frost, or do you want this bed, or at least part of the planting to return next year. If you want a return you will need to mix in perennials into the bed as well. Please also remember that we are dealing with 3 seasons of color, but at this point we only need to think seriously about the summer and fall beds. A few well chosen boxes of blue pansies, mixed with red and white sweet

Williams will hold until the summer season flowers should take over. For summer, try planting red penstemon, white candytufts, and blue coneflowers, or how about trying red Monarda, white snapdragons, and blue veronica. There are r/w/b petunias, salvia and Scabiosa which are annuals. Perennials are lupine, poppy, phlox and veronica. We are all accustomed to geraniums in red and white, then mix in blue cornflowers, larkspur and lobelia. The list of the plants goes on and on, and the nearby merchandisers are very willing to work closely with you on choices. Most of all, let’s all make the most of the coming bicentennial, make our community beautiful, and be proud to be a Huronite. Happy Gardening! Gardening questions: email Mary at rmstrayer@msn.com, and I will try to get back to you ASAP. Thanks.

Nation’s Leading Cruise Retailer Unveils Innovative Insurance Local CruiseOne Franchise Owner Joy Hillman Now Offering Unique “CruiseAssurance” Policy at No Additional Charge on Bookings March 1-May 2 Huron, Ohio – 02/27/2009 – Consumers nationwide might be concerned about losing their jobs, but Erie County residents no longer need to worry about a pink slip ruining their vacation plans. CruiseOne, the nation’s largest cruise retail agency, today announced the first-ever comprehensive job loss travel insurance policy covering travel on all cruise lines. The new “CruiseAssurance” initiative is an exclusive benefit to consumers booking through Joy Hillman & As-

sociates is even if they have to cancel their trip at the last minute because of an unexpected layoff. The best part? CruiseOne is picking up the tab for “CruiseAssurance” for consumers purchasing their basic travel insurance. Combined with lower-than-ever prices, cruising is now the most affordable and worry-free vacation option. “In today’s environment, it is crucial for businesses to step up to the plate showing we understand consumer challenges, and a handful of companies have recently done this with their versions of job loss protection,” said Dwain Wall, General Manager of CruiseOne’s corporate headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “Our ‘CruiseAssurance’ policy takes the concept of job loss insurance to a new level, easing the concerns of consumers

at no charge and on any cruise line of their choice.” Under the “CruiseAssurance” policy, area residents booking a cruise with Joy Hillman can cancel their trip up to the day of departure, or even during the vacation. The only requirements are that travelers purchase an entry-level travel insurance plan – administered by Travel Guard – and present their termination letter. One year of employment is required. “CruiseAssurance” applies to bookings made March 1 through May 2, 2009 and is offered in addition to an already comprehensive travel protection policy.* * Underwritten by the National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA., currently authorized to transact business in all states and the District of Columbia. NAIC No. 19445.

Looking Back Through the Pages of the Reporter What I Remember by Vera Mae McComb was taken from the June 27, 1984, Quesquicentennial edition of The Reporter. A long time resident of Huron, Vera was a Huron math teacher for seventeen years. She was a trail blazer in many areas and involved in numerous civic projects. She was the first woman elder of the First Presbyterian Church and served as the first woman mayor of Huron for eight years. The parade in 1940 sponsored by the Child Study Club, most of whom had babies born that year. Each baby carriage had a sign urging passage of the bond issue which was to build a new school. Later seeing a picture of that school (McCormick) at a school

board convention in Atlantic City-citing it as an excellent example of a modern, fireproof, well designed building. Seeing that building house grades 1-12 and nine years later seeing two classes in the gym and one in the locker room. Then the annex, then Shawnee and on and on. The grocery and meat market operated by my father and uncle. The Saturday nights when farms brought their butter and eggs to barter for staples. The smoke house behind the store where they smoked hams and sausage. This in the middle of Main Street. {Smith”s Grocery Store and Harts Meat Market were long time Main Street businesses.) Kiddie Land and Jungle Larry on the spot where Colonial Colony apartments now stand.

Riding the Lake Shore Electric into Cleveland to Public Square in 45 minutes. The lovely woods and wild flowers where Colonial Colony and Village Green are now located.

I am proud to have been a small part of it.

What Income is Taxable? FROM DEE HARTLEY, SENIOR TAX ADVISOR AT H & R BLOCK We often hear “I did some work for so and so but it was less than $600 so I don’t need to put it on my tax return.” This is so wrong. If you worked and got paid for it, it is taxable income to you. You need to talk to a tax professional. IRS does like to tax your income no matter where you got it. Here are some brief comments on income

from IRS. While most income you receive is generally considered taxable, there are some situations when certain types of income are partially taxed or not taxed at all. Some common examples of items that are not included in your income are: • Adoption Expense Reimbursements for qualifying expenses • Child support payments • Gifts, bequests and inheritances • Workers’ compensation benefits • Meals and Lodging for the convenience of your employer • Compensatory Damages awarded for physical injury or physical sickness • Welfare Benefits • Cash Rebates from a dealer or manufacturer • Economic Stimulus Payment received in 2008 Some income may be taxable under certain circumstance, but not taxable in other situations. Examples of items that may or may not be included in your income are: Life Insurance. If you surrender a life insurance policy for cash, you must include in income any proceeds that are more than the cost of the life insurance policy. Life insurance proceeds paid to you because of the death of the insured person are not taxable unless the policy was turned over to you for a price. Scholarship or Fellowship Grant. If you are a candidate for a degree, you can exclude amounts you receive as a qualified scholarship or fellowship. Amounts used for room and board do not qualify. All other items—including income such as wages, salaries and tips— must be included in your income,unless it is specifically excluded by law. Taxable income may be in a form other than cash. One example of this is bartering, which is an exchange of property or services. The fair market value of goods and services exchanged is fully taxable and must be included as income on Form 1040 of both parties. These examples are not all-inclusive. For more information, visit the IRS Web site at IRS.gov to view or download Publication 525, Taxable and Nontaxable Income from the Forms and Publications section or call 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).

publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
