Chester Trustees Trade Barbs Over Property By Diane Ryder During an often heated meeting last Thursday, Chester Township Trustees hurled accusations at each other about their plans for two township-owned properties: the Henry House at 8680 Mayfield Road; and an 80acre parcel the township owns at 11255 Chillicothe Road, at the northern edge of the township. The two properties have been the center of controversy for the last several months, with some residents questioning trustees at meetings why the 80-acre property, owned by the township for the last four years, remains closed to the public. In addition, residents have asked trustees about their plans for the Henry House, which trustees purchased in 2009 for $110,000, for potential use as a meeting place for the Chester Township Park Board and second floor storage for township records. Last Thursday night, Trustee Ken Radtke said he was shocked to learn a park board member has inspected the Henry House “six or seven times” and had planned to make a presentation on the subject that evening. “Did somebody ask a park board member to do that?” asked Radtke. Trustee Judy Caputo said park board member Lance Yandell had wanted to study the building and report his findings to trustees. Radtke objected, saying he

Angry with the lack of response to questions and concerns about open enrollment students expressed by community members at the Sept. 23 West Geauga school board meeting, several parents have called for a community town hall meeting with the school board. Parent Anita Zurcher sent an email Oct. 2 to school board President Bill Beers with a list of questions the group wants the board to answer at the proposed meeting. The questions concern class sizes, costs and academics pertaining to open enrollment students. Beers responded he could not call a town hall meeting without the consent of the other board members.

“I cannot decide for the board that there will be a town hall meeting and neither can any other board member,” he said. “We will make sure your question is on the list. A couple of the administrators necessary to address the questions have been out of the office the end of last week and this week.” Zurcher said she intends to hold his feet to the fire. “They’re good at stalling,” she said. “Their lack of transparency has left the community in the dark about what the board is doing.” Added Zurcher, “In a town hall meeting they would have to answer our questions.” At the Sept. 23 meeting, about 10 concerned parents and community members were

Renovations Planned For Deacon’s Car Dealership By Josh Echt Growing up, words like “Hemi”, “Roadrunner” and “Cuda” helped expand a young Jim Deacon’s vocabulary. To that young Jim Deacon, now the owner of the Deacon’s dealership in Mayfield Village, those words evoke memories of Mopars past: Darts. Challengers. Chargers. GTXs. Superbirds. Coronets. “I had a ’68 Plymouth Roadrunner growing up,” he said. “I still wish I had it. My cousin had a Plymouth GTX.” And, with new renovations planned for the dealership, words and phrases like “customer service”, “loyalty” and “sales” are important to Jim Deacon and his team, he said. Jim Deacon described the history behind his dealership and the proposed upgrades as part of the renovation to the Chesterland News last week. Deacons, Inc., sells Chrysler and Dodge vehicles, as well as Jeep and Ram light trucks.

Mo Par To Ya: A Review And Preview The building, located at the corner of Wilson Mills and S.O.M. Center roads, has been a dealership since 1926. In September 1963, Jim’s father, Dick, purchased the building. Dick’s brother, Bob, worked there as well. Bob Deacon’s son, Tom, operated a separate business, Deacon’s Collision Center, LLC, next door. “The building started off as a Chevy store,” Jim Deacon said. “I have pictures of receipts from 1932. On the receipt, the area is indicated as South Euclid, and there are five digits on the telephone line.” At first, the store sold Chrysler and DeSoto products, then expanded to Plymouth and later Jeep, he said. Most recently, it acquired the Dodge and Ram franchises a few weeks ago. The dealership renovation,

Parents from page 1 given five minutes each to make comments and ask questions. However, their questions and concerns were not addressed. Beers said the purpose of that meeting was to conduct the business of the board and not to address members of the public. Rather than quell concerns, this had the effect of creating a rift between the school and some of its former supporters, Zurcher said. She explained she was active in previous levy campaigns, on the After-Prom committee and other pro-school groups. Zurcher’s youngest child graduated from the school in June, but she said she is concerned about the impact decisions being made at the school will have on her property values. “A few years ago, when we were trying to pass a levy and knocking on doors, there was this group of ‘no’ voters in Chesterland,” she said. “If they (school board) think it was hard to pass a levy then, wait until now; it’s like it’s this secret — like the whole community doesn’t know who’s coming into the school system now.” Zurcher said West Geauga has gone from approximately 110 open-enrollment students

Trustees from page 1 Radtke then brought up the 80-acre parcel and proposed trying to find a way to get out of the township’s agreement with the Western Reserve Land Conservancy to set aside 57 acres in a permanent conservation easement. Radtke proposed breaking the agreement, selling that portion of the acreage or selling the wetlands mitigation rights, and using the money to buy a more suitable piece of park property. He said he had evidence on June 15, 2011, the former zoning inspector had asked to meet with each trustee individually on the matter. That could be construed as a “round robin” meeting that could have violated the Ohio Sunshine Laws, he added, which could be grounds for making the agreement null and void. “You draft a letter to the prosecutor and submit it to the board, and we’ll look into it, but I think everything was done legally at the time,” Joyce told him. Radtke moved to request the Geauga County Prosecutor’s Office look into the township’s options, which drew Caputo’s

to around 225. “The other problem is now these class sizes are huge. You now have 29 to 30 kids in some classrooms,” she said. “Here’s the thing, if they keep letting these kids in, now they have to staff up. They say they are getting more money from the state, but what are you gaining?” Another parent, Anthony Kosley, said he is worried about the long-term effect of open enrollment on local property taxes and property values. “The district receives $5,700 per student, however, our school board cannot tell us how much it costs to educate that student,” he said. “They state that from 2010 the average cost is $11,000. Where then is the other $5,300 coming from?” Kosley added, “We live in the district and the taxes we pay on our property go to our schools. When the district comes to the residents and asks for more money, the open enrollment parents are not part of this equation.” With open enrollment, any child in the state can come to our schools, he said, citing the example of Richmond Heights, which sends 51 students to West Geauga. Parents from that district have banded together and rented school transportation vans to transport their kids back and forth, the parent added.

Kosley is concerned about declining property values. “Strong schools mean strong property values,” he Beers said. “Why should people move here? All you need to do to attend our schools is find a way here. These open enrollment kids take spots on sports teams, chorus, band, plays and so on.” Zurcher said the school administration is painting the group of parents as racists. She said it was mentioned in a teacher’s memo and at a meeting held in the school. “This is simply not true,” she said. “I have bi-racial members in my family and I have raised my children to be colorblind.” The parent group would like to see the school district limit open enrollment students to contiguous communities. “The school board continually mentions wanting to strive to be like higher performing schools such as Kenston, Chagrin Falls and Orange, even Solon,” she said. “None of them has open enrollment like West G has instituted.” She said the other area school districts point to West Geauga as a “bad” example of open enrollment.

wrath. She accused him of coming up with a motion without consulting the other trustees — a charge Radtke has made against the other two trustees numerous times. “You make an allegation about a round robin, but there is no indication that anyone ever met,” Caputo told him. Radtke’s motion died without a second. Caputo said officials in the prosecutor’s office have told the township they believe all the questions and issues being brought up recently are related to the upcoming election, where Caputo and Joyce will face four challengers. “It’s sad they feel that way,” she said. Radtke denied he had alleged the Sunshine Law had been violated with a round-robin session. Caputo said she stands behind the conservation easement and told Radtke, “If you honestly feel something has been done wrong, then take the steps to bring it to the appropriate parties.” “You brought up a motion and now I’d like to bring one of my own up,” Joyce said, as he moved to open the 80 acres to

the public, with restrictions against use of motorized vehicles and with signs warning people to use at their own risk.

“For me to find out after the fact, from a park board member, is unacceptable.”

– Ken Radtke Radtke objected, accusing the other trustees of “electioneering politics.” “And you wonder why the prosecutor’s office came out with the letter that they did,” Caputo told him. The motion passed by a 2-1 vote, with Radtke voting no. He said, for the record, he was not opposed to opening the park, but was against what he called a haphazard resolution. “It’s a property right now and not legally a park,” Radtke said. “We’re not opening it as a park; we’re opening it as public land, to allow the people of Chester, who bought and paid for it, to use it,” Joyce said.

L etters to the Editor

CHESTERLAND NEWS

Obamacare What a disgusting misnomer for the legislation know as “the Affordable Health Care Act.” Since its inception, our health care costs and deductibles have skyrocketed because once again, Washington refused to address the price gouging and collusion between the insurers and hospitals. I don’t know any average family that can pay towards a $56,000 every year without insurers paying a dime. The health care system is and has been broken for years, but because corporate supporters and kickbacks are so lucrative, why would Washington bother to fix it? Now we not only continue to pay for those that can’t afford health care, but we are “commanded” to subsidize the Cayman accounts of those wealthy health insurance CEO’s or face a fine for those same individuals. Karl Marx has to be dancing on his grave. I do insurance audits for a living, so when I see a $10,000 hospital bill in which Anthem can write off $8,000, leaving the real cost of the service to the patient of $2,000, I really get depressed. If that isn’t true, look at the pay and bonuses of the hospital CEO’s. Obamacare will destroy this country's economy and make the banking fraud look like child's play. Evelyn Green Chester Township

Stop Open Enrollment I urge the community to attend school board meeting. Our district has open enrollment; this means that any child in the state can come to our schools. Students must find transportation to and from school. The district receives $5,700 per student, however, our school board can not tell us how much it costs to educate that student. They state that from 2010, the average cost is $11,000. Where is the other $5,300 coming from? Why should a child from South Euclid/Lyndhurst, in which there are 56 students from that district attending WG, come here? Richmond Heights sends 51 students here. Parents from there have banded together and rented school transportation vans to transport their kids back and forth. In an email, Mr. Kotowski, a member of the school board, said these parents do what WG parents do. They care about their kids, attend school functions and are involved just like those that reside here. Mr. Kotowski, that maybe true, however, you have forgotten one very important fact: we live in the district and the taxes we pay on our property go to our schools. When the district comes to the residents and asks for more money, the open enrollment parents are not part of this equation. Their taxes and pockets will not suffer. Mr. Palmer and the board members like to say the open enrollment kids out-perform our kids. Why is that you are comparing 258 kids to 2031 kids? Open enrollment will hurt all

of those with kids in school and everyone that resides here. Our property values will decline. Strong schools mean strong property values. Why should people move here? All you need to do to attend our schools is find a way here. These open enrollment kids take spots on sports teams, chorus, band, plays and so on. Let's stand together and stop open enrollment now. One way is vote to Sally Gillmore and Bill Beers off the board. Anthony Kosley Chester Township

Protect Constructive Dissent Was Tom Paine ‘disruptive’ when he wrote and published “Common Sense”? You bet he was. I believe the newspaper has a responsibility to speak up here. The ad placed by Mike Kilroy in the Chesterland News was an expression of his free speech rights. What message does it send to students that it is OK for the school superintendent and board to censor the press when, in their opinion, the message expressed in the ‘free’ press is “disruptive”? Constructive dissent is protected by the Constitution and is a necessary part of a functioning democracy. Censorship leads to dictatorship (where the books are burned!). I’m not judging Mike Kilroy’s opinion as right or wrong ... just that he has the right to express it and be heard ... and not just by those the school board and the school superintendent deem appropriate. Superintendent Palmer’s actions to suppress opinions he considered to be disruptive are short-sighted, counter-productive and far more disruptive than any caused by the Chesterland News issue of Sept. 11. He turned a molehill into a mountain. It is very likely that Superintendent Palmer’s actions increased the so-called “disruptive effects” of this incident. Will you also be suppressed in expressing your opinion? Grant C. Grinnell Chester Township

When Lies are Told Redux When reading the letter from Ken Radtke in the Chesterland News on Oct. 2, I found it necessary to respond to it. He alludes to a vote cast by Judy Caputo in 2008, regarding the rezoning of property for commercial use. He fails to mention the location of the property, which is south of Route 322 on the eastside of Route 306. This is the location of the new Guido’s Restaurant and the Generations Reception and Meeting Center; this represents a significant investment and real estate tax increase. This endeavor by the Albino family was supported by large crowds at the various Township meetings. The vote cast was 2-1 with a Radtke supporter voting against it. Where would this project be without Judy Caputo’s support? Ask Mr. Radtke, who cast the negative vote?

What Mr. Radtke fails to mention is that Mrs. Caputo casts votes, which caused discontinuance of commercial use on an equal amount of commercially zoned land within the township. Mr. Radtke included his telephone number in his letter and invited calls from citizens of Chester Township. Please accept his invitation and call him. Do not forget to ask him, why on a consistent basis he abstains from voting on various township matters. Yes, this election is about Mr. Radtke and the future of Chester Township and the need for the current majority to remain in office. It is too bad Mr. Radtke is not up for re-election. J.A. Frank Chester Township

Re-Elect Beers, Gillmore As a new Board of Education member and the Chair of West Geauga's Finance Committee, it quickly became apparent that West Geauga parents and taxpayers demand an exceptional school system at a the lowest possible cost. Board president Bill Beers and member Sally Gillmore understand this. Beers, a PhD, researcher, and manager at General Electric, and Gilllmore, retired from career teaching at Kent State University and the Mayfield Schools, have demonstrated that they know how to find that balance. Under their leadership the board has put into action a five year plan to raise West Geauga Schools' admirable top 7% of Ohio school districts ranking to top 5%. They've voted to add more Advanced Placement classes, align curriculum between grades and schools, and add technology support for teachers. Consistently, West Geauga's state test scores have been rising. This progress is only possible because of aggressive cost-cutting over the last few years, include reducing staff, sharing services, and our award-winning energy conservation program. Now, with $9 million in the bank, Beers and Gillmore have put West Geauga in position to not ask for new money from the public for several years. West G's strong reputation attracts students, most of them high-performing, from other school districts, bringing in over $1.2 million in state money that helps keep our taxes lower. This program is so successful that the board has authorized it unanimously each year for the past seven years. Bill Beers and Sally Gillmore have demonstrated strong, responsible leadership not with rhetoric, but by providing our students, parents, and taxpayers with an outstanding district that is in the best financial shape of any school system in Geauga County. Bill Beers and Sally Gillmore have earned your vote for reelection to the West Geauga School Board.

meet West Geauga Schools board member Michael “The Flash” Kilroy. Kilroy, who has taken out full-page newspaper ads criticizing fellow board members, recently made local headlines accusing the school superintendent of censorship of his ads — and then voted for a board resolution against pursuing his own charges. In one ad, savaging board member Sally Gillmore, he states, “I found an internet company ... who would do wifi for the district and gave a 25 percent discount if WG would be a demo site ... Sally Gillmore voted no.” Of course, Gilmore wasn’t anti wifi; she thought the deal was misrepresented. It turns out there are still problems with the installation over a year later, and the district has withheld final payment. To date, not one person has been sent to visit WG’s “demo site.” Mr. Kilroy’s recent ad claims, “If you want to know

more about open enrollment and what is going on ... you need to elect a new school board.” That presumably includes Mr. Kilroy. In his six years on the board, he’s always voted for open enrollment. He goes on, “.an old business manager was arrested by the FBI ... it’s true.” Yes, arrested in the Cuyahoga County scandal that had nothing to do with West Geauga Schools ... it’s true! Mr. Kilroy clearly has his own agenda and his methods are a disservice to West Geauga. How many voters have the inside scoop to “fact check” his rants? Before you vote this fall, look for objective information, such as questioners from the League of Women Voters. Or you can meet the candidates. We’re a small town, they’re accessible.

Notes of Gratitude From WG Senior Center On behalf of the seniors at the West Geauga Senior Center, I wanted to thank Josh Echt for the article he wrote about the senior center and share with you the benefits of this article. This morning, we had a local gentleman show up with a sizeable donation of glass and other pieces of equipment to our glass shop. He said he read the article in the Chesterland News and thought it was time to give back. Although he wasn’t sure where we were located, he found us so I wanted to let the readers know that the West Geauga Senior Center is located at the Patterson Fruit Farm, 11414 Caves Road, Chester Township and the phone number is 440-729-2782. We extend our appreciation to Josh and the paper for printing that article, and to let your readers know these kinds of donations allow us to keep classes affordable and our shop going.

Deacons from page 1 slated for completion next June, will include an additional 6,700 square feet in service bay space and increasing the bay total to 22. Two new quick-lube bays and a drive-through car wash are in the works. The Carey Construction Group, Inc., of Wellington, will construct the building, designed by Davison Smith Certo Architects, Inc., of Rocky River. “The showroom, completely new, will consist of an L-shaped addition around the current service department,” he said. “Also, the entrance to the store will face the intersection of both S.O.M. Center and Wilson Mills.” An upstairs mezzanine will feature training rooms, a meeting room and office spaces. “It’s a pretty big renovation,” he added. General Sales Manager Jesse Remby said he was proud to welcome the Dodge and Ram franchises to the facility and added he looked forward to the new renovation.

“It’s going to be a brandnew facility and it will have everything needed in a dealership,” Remby said. “We’re building and it’s going to be great.” Remby, who is in charge of the family-run business’s sales department, said the business’s heritage was amazing. “It’s about heritage, work ethic, the relationship to the community and the opportunity to open a new franchise,” Remby said. Deacon said the dealership has been “working on this a long time” in terms of getting a renovation done. “Dodge has some neat-performing cars and trucks, and we have the opportunity to sell them there with the new franchise,” Deacon said. “The Mopar family of vehicles is one of the most iconic brand names out there.” Deacon's has been located at 835 S.O.M. Center Road in Mayfield Village for 50 years. It serves Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties, areas that include Mayfield and Cleveland’s eastern suburbs.

My Objectives: • Focus on making our children’s education the primary objective and not petty politics • Compromise and promote great ideas that will strengthen the district • Promote the kind of open door policy that will allow fresh ideas help make West Geauga Schools great • Asking the questions to understand what concerns the community has with the future and problem solving to address those concerns by acting fiscally responsible and making the hard choices I believe in our community, our kids, and our schools. My involvement in the West Geauga School Board is to promote all three. I understand the importance a strong school district has on real estate values and I also know how crucial it is to have a school district that has the needs of its students as the main goal. I bring the experience of sitting as a councilman for four years, a manager of a real estate office as well as the director of relocation, and having my business degree from Bowling Green, being a family man and parent, I know firsthand how important schools are to the community, being the father of a United States Recon Marine, I also understand and feel for the well-being of all our children. I promise I will do my best for our schools and our children when I am elected! #& ,

Wow! What an absolutely great football game! Best I’ve seen in years! But honestly, was the play clock stuck in slow motion at the end or what? % &3 .% &3 .% &3 Sure did feel like it! This is why our sons play the game! This is why they bust their angus preseason – midseason and offseason! They do it for an opportunity to be champions, but fully understanding the “No Guarantee” clause scribed on the back of their playbooks. Aurora came into Howell Field for the last time under current field conditions. They came in shining their 2012 Regional Championship trophy. They came in boasting a seven and one record over the Wolverines in their last eight meetings, not to mention a 5 – 0 record so far this year. Only the 9 – 2 Wolverines from “09” could say they left the Greenman green with envy. Sixty yards stood between a long awaited West Geauga Wolverine moment; their absolute “Thrill of Victory” or their undeniable “Agony of Defeat?” What was it going to be? Could West Geauga do the one thing they struggled at times to do; stop Aurora QB George Bollas and his state ranked Aurora Greenman? With a minute twenty eight left in the game; the football life of the West Geauga Wolverines just got very real! Funny thing happened on the way to the game though; apparently Aurora’s 6’4” - 215lbs QB, George Bollas was benched for what appeared to be the better part of the first half. Rumor around town was Bollas missed the bus, not sure if that’s true or not, but either way Bollas found himself pacing the sideline watching his team dig a hole he would struggle to pull them out of.

On 4th & 13 Connor and Kijauskas connected again for a first down at the Greenman 8; Krouse punched it in a play later and West Geauga is up by 15 again, 21 – 6 Charlie set the offense up with West G. tremendous field position then the offense respectfully answered punch- George Bollas was finally inserted ing it in again from nine yards out. into the action and not a minute too Krouse, 21 of 32 for 312 yards and 3 soon for the Greenman as he led his touchdowns, connected again with offense back to score trimming the Joe Kijauskas, 8 catches for 188 Wolverine lead back down to 8; 21 – yards and three scores; 14 – 0 13 Wolverines. But Carm “A-Nooch” Engolia left the Greenman players, Wolverines in the first quarter. coaches, and faithful pondering exactly what was going on in the land of Chester? Carmen bolted thru the line of scrimmage and was off; 50 yards down to the Greenman 7. Krouse punched it in again from the 7; now its 28 – 13 at the half!

Through the first five weeks of the season Abdul Levy and Connor Krouse, with the helpful hands of the boys upfront, have established the West Geauga Wolverines as a run first run fast offense! The offensive line has imposed its will over enemy forces with painful consistency! They can, they did, and they will run the ball! But all of a sudden the ground and pound of the Blue & White turned into a spread em’ out and let her fly aerial assault; all this is in pursuit of that elusive CVC crown. “Very surprising,” Aurora Coach Bob Mihalik said. “We had two films on them and they were a heavy run team, and we were geared up to stop the run obviously.” Well played Coach Cirino!

Leading by fourteen West Geauga sputtered a minute; punt it away fellas, only tackle the kid with the ball next time! Aurora’s Kirk Janoch returned Welcome back folks to what turned the Wolverine punt for a touchdown out to be a perfect night for football narrowing the Wolverine lead to 8; 14 under the big and beautiful skies of – 6 Wolverines. Geauga County. As the Wolverine’s readied themselves for the challenge As the momentum shifted from our at hand the faithful in the parking lot side to their side it was the offenses took to their tailgates burning some turn to try and take it back. Momenburgers and charring some chops. tum in sports is the equivalent to Our lady of Chesterland, her rowdy water being wet; it’s the absolute residents, and her West Geauga competition needs to exist! Third and Wolverines were finally ready to kick long then third and short were the king of the hill to the curb and converted with calm as Connor take over atop the CVC Mountain! connected with Carmen Engolia with ease. As the Wolverines continued Before the Greenman could tie their their march down the field, resistance shoes the Wolverines went up by to that march was completely seven. Connor Krouse, who out played his counterpart in Green, connected with Joe Kijauskas from 35 yards away; 7 - 0 Wolverines. Without Bollas to start the game the Greenman moved the ball around a little but struggled to score against

Wolverines were looking at herculean 4th & 7 inside Aurora territory. Go for it? Punt it? What to do, what to do? Then without hesitation they went for it. Connor dropped back and eased the ball over to Joe Kijauskas for a gain of about ten and another first down for the Wolverines. It’s first and ten from the twenty four, but the ball could have been spotted on the one inch line; these guys were not going to be denied! Then, before anyone could figure out what happened, the Wolverines took the lead on a Krouse to Kijauskas twenty four yard - over the shoulder - in stride - as he blew by the corner who had zero chance of even slowing him down! Touchdown Wolverines! Touchdown Wolverines and it’s mayhem at Howell’s midfield! Wolverines take a 35 – 28 lead; holy cow they did it! But it’s not over yet……… One minute and twenty eight seconds remained and your Wolverines are winning! But George Bollas and his group of Greenmen were not going to go away quietly, there’s a reason they’re ranked in this great state of Ohio. Seconds seemed like minutes as the Greenmen drove deep inside West Geauga territory. With every play the faithful took a peek at the clock; tick – tick – tick – tick – tick – tick…. Michael Cline buried Bollas in the backfield and now it’s twenty one seconds left. Aurora managed three more plays in a matter of sixteen seconds but could not cross the finish line. Heavy pressure and the ball just fluttered out of Bollas’s hand one last time. The Greenmen could only watch as the Wolverines celebrated, as the team they are, all over midfield! " " $! !

% Connor Krouse and his offense were presented with their third final drive/walk off shot to win it, and so far the offense is batting a respectable .500.

CHESTERLAND NEWS

news American Design and Fabrication Take a look around and great things are happening across America, as a new generation of designers and craftsmen are influencing the way we eat, look and dress. Grocery aisles in stores are filled with artisan and in-store branded options, microbreweries are as popular as ever and magazines are fond of telling us about the latest, up and coming designer. “When we took over our family business, we decided to make an increasing percentage of our inventory for several reasons.” said Mark Saric of Prestige Jewels, Inc. in Chester Township. Small, family run business owners have faced numerous challenges in the past few decades: traditional catalogue shopping turned into t.v. shopping, then big box stores made an impact in the marketplace, and now social media, the internet and having the latest app are a must have for some. So how can one stand out in the crowd? “The internet is a great tool – a starting point, a source of information for sure, but, it’s not generally the place to go if you are looking for quality construction or something original,” added Saric. The limits to internet shopping are understandable enough. On the one hand, the one-size-fits-all, mass merchandising approach has found yet another outlet, which is why some do not go to the malls anymore, for example, because they can just go to the online version of a favorite store. The internet is also no longer free. Consumers are limited by search engine queries that in turn are driven by things like website optimization; and when social media sites like Facebook go public, the information they distribute, and what one has access to, becomes subject to things like paid advertising. “One thing that is great about us is that we make things, “ said Mark Saric, “and many of our customers do not want what everyone else has and we offer folks lots of options, whether recycling or modifying an existing piece or making a one-of-akind from scratch.” When it comes to jewelry, American designers and their counterparts in other countries

have adapted to changes in the marketplace, got creative and in some cases revisited past favorites. “When precious metal prices started rising a few years ago, many people began to appreciate the option of buying a wedding band in tungsten or titanium; and traditional techniques of blackening silver or gold are back in, and rose gold, which you only would see in estate jewelry for awhile, has really, really, made a big comeback in watches, traditional fine jewelry and contemporary classics,” he added. The halo style engagement ring and micro-pave setting styles have made vintage looking jewelry appear new and inspired, and there are growing numbers of people who enjoy all things artisan. “We work with Dinosaur Bone and rare material like Moldavite, which is formed by meteriorite impact; and while we will always cater to a specific style, there is nothing quite like making something for someone and knowing that it has never been done before,” Saric explained. “What’s fabulous about fashion today is that there are no rules – people travel, shop, mix and match – a lady may wear a classic platinum diamond band most days, and be partial to an exotic statement necklace that was made of materials we designed and fabricated in-house.” That’s a good thing, too, especially for those who like to think global and shop local.

helps improve or restore physical functionality and your fitness level. The primary goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. The thought of having to undergo physical therapy can be an unnerving experience for anyone. When you walk through the clinic door for your first visit it is natural for your mind to be filled with questions like—What is physical therapy? Will therapy really help me get better? How long will it take to get better? If nothing else, you should take from this article that it is perfectly normal to have these feelings and questions regarding physical therapy. At your first physical therapy visit (which typically lasts an hour), your licensed physical therapist will review your diagnosis and medical history. A standard course of physical therapy treatment is 2-3 times per week for a period lasting 4-6 weeks. While having to attend physical therapy while experiencing pain can be a challenge, the team at Cardinal Physical Therapy in Chesterland is dedicated to making the experience as smooth as possible. “Therapy can be challenging—both mentally and physically, but my job is to find a way to inject a caring

and fun atmosphere into the healing process”, says Mandy Phillips, Cardinal’s lead full time Physical Therapist. In honor of National Physical Therapy Month Cardinal Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation is expanding their mission to make therapy fun for their patients and the surrounding community. Complete the search-aword puzzle on page 11 and bring it in to Cardinal Physical Therapy this month to enter to win one of several prizes. Cardinal Physical Therapy is centrally located in Chester Towship within the West Geauga Plaza, near Giant Eagle. Locally owned and committed to your community, the Cardinal Physical Therapy team has over 40 years of combined clinical experience.

Ask Angelo When deciding to list your home for sale, one of the most common mistakes sellers make is not hiring the right agent for the job. Ask yourself five questions to make sure you are hiring the right person for your home. The first question is what is your list price to sale price ratio? This is one of the most important questions this answer

is going to show you whether the agent you’re interviewing is negotiating hard or hardly for their client. My team’s list price to sale price ratio is 97.6%. The second question to ask is what is your average days on market? You may notice the agent may have a lot of listings, but is that agent selling those homes? My team’s average is 49 days which is a tad bit over a month. The third question to ask is the number of homes sold last year? Believe it or not, the average realtor in this area only sells four houses a year. You want to make sure you have someone well established with the experience to sell your home. My team sold 267 homes last year. The fourth question to ask is if your realtor is part time or full time? A lot of realtors only sell homes when they are off of work or do it as a weekend hobby. They may not have the drive and determination to sell your home quick and for the most dollar amount. The last question is what is your marketing plan? So many realtors believe they can sell a house by taking pictures with their cell phone, putting a sign in the yard and praying. Obviously, the realtor you choose needs to share with you the marketing plan so you’re included in the loop. Call Angelo Marrali, 440974-7846, or email angelomarrali@howardhanna.com for more information.

news West Geauga National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists Congratulations to WG senior Henry Watson, who has qualified as a Semifinalist in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. About 1.5 million students in some 22,000 high schools enter the National Merit Scholarship competition annually when they take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Of these entrants, some 16,000 semifinalists are designated on a state representational basis, in numbers proportional to each state’s percentage of the nation’s high school graduating seniors. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represent the top one percent of the state’s senior students. Congratulations to WG senior Paedyn Gomes, who is one of approximately 1,600 Black American high school students who have qualified as a Semifinalist in the 20 14 National Achievement Scholarship Program. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program participants in the states that constitute each designated region.

West Geauga School Board Election It’s not always bad news or negativity. To those who don’t understand my passion and think that it is always negative, I apologize. I mean that. I have tried to help where I could, as many of you are aware.
