Senior Citizens Fight Back to Keep Center Open By Diane Ryder More than 10 0 residents, most of them senior citizens, filled the Building 8 meeting room at 470 Center St. last Thursday during the first Geauga County Commissioners’ evening meeting in many years. The standing-room-only crowd listened intently as commissioners discussed their Jan. 30 decision to sign a one-year rental contract for the the West Geauga Senior Center at Orchard Hills in Chester Township. During the Jan. 30 meeting, the new director of the Geauga County Department on Aging, Jessica Boalt, recommended commissioners renew the contract for one year, which she said would give her time to research all the rental contracts and decide the best course of action for the department. The DOA operates senior centers in Thompson, Middlefield, Munson, Chester and Chagrin Falls Park in Bainbridge Township. All except the Munson facility are rented.
The West Geauga site contract expired Jan. 31. Many of the comments made by commissioners and audience members during that meeting led some residents to believe commissioners were considering consolidation of some of the sites. “This has been a heavily discussed topic,” Commissioner Ralph Spidalieri said Thursday. “We had a situation approximately a month ago when our (DOA’s) new director discussed the renewal of the contract for the West Geauga Senior Center at Orchard Hills.” Spidalieri said Boalt had brought up concerns about the center, including a 10-percent increase in the rent and utility costs. He said he had received many emails from residents questioning the location of the center at the northwest corner of the county and decided to propose that commissioners look into other options for a more centralized location. “Before I was a commissioner, I never realized the importance our (centers are to our seniors),”

he said. “I didn’t get a full snapshot until we started interviewing for the new director.” Spidalieri said he realizes the county’s senior population is growing and will continue to need such facilities. “Our goal is not to take away service; it’s about quality,” he told the audience. Chester resident Mary Ann Mazelski told Spidalieri she
uses the West Geauga center and was upset about a recent Chesterland News article that said commissioners were considering consolidating the sites because only 20 people were using the West Geauga facility. “Twenty people a day is totally inaccurate,” she told commissioners. “It upset me no end to see the misstatements in the paper. We don’t need fewer facilities; we
need more facilities.” Many in the crowd applauded. Spidalieri said some of the comments stated in the article had come from the audience during the Jan. 30 meeting, not from him. Commissioner Mary Samide said she agreed with the resident, that the county needs an additional center in the

Russell Renews Commitment to Watershed, GSWCD By Gwen Cooper Cost-conscious Russell Trustees voted to pay $3,311 in dues to Chagrin River Watershed Partners and $2,000 to Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District at their March 5 meeting. Representatives from both groups updated trustees on their work. “There’s no problem here, but we received your billing notice and wanted to hear an update,” Trustee Justin Madden said. Trustee Jim Mueller said, “Someone has to pay for the Phase II Storm Water work
(GSWCD does) on our behalf.” He was referring to a report the township must file with the EPA to be compliant with storm water runoff and stream pollution. Carmella Shales of GSWCD explained every $1 her organization collects from local governments is matched by the state on a scale of 70-97 percent, depending on the state budget. “Local support gets rewarded,” she said. “The higher the local funding, the more state dollars are returned to help the local community.” Shales said GSWCD’s mission is to conserve, protect and enhance the watershed.

group was established in 1944 and provides technical assistance and education programs on dealing with soil erosion, sediment and storm water runoff. The EPA’s Phase II requirements over the past few years includes inspecting outfalls of water from properties into ditches. Shales said her group was called 319 times last year by Russell residents. “That’s nearly one a day with our two employees responding just to Russell,” she said. “The fees billed to Russell don’t cover the full amount it would cost for that service.” She said Russell has 26 recognized storm water basins and her group is responsible for inspecting them each year to make sure they are still there and working. “Sometimes a new resident moves in, doesn’t know why the basin is there and fills it in with top soil,” she said. Residents also call GSWCD about ponds on their properties with questions that range from algae control to drainage and erosion. Amy Brennan, director of CRWP said her group complements, rather than overlaps GSWCD. “Ninety-nine percent of
Russell Township trustees Jim Mueller, Justin Madden and Gary Gabram listen to the update before approving the township's annual dues payments to the GSWCD and CRWP.
Russell is located within the Chagrin River watershed area,” she said. Founded in 1994, the organization has 37 members including several county governments, area townships, villages and cities, along with the Geauga Park District, all of which fall into the watershed area. Brennan said Russell is one of 16 of its original members. “We help residents with zoning codes, especially riparian setbacks, which can be hard to locate,” she said. Her group also helps to identify and obtain grant money for property owners to repair stream damage. One of those is
funded through the sale of the state’s lighthouse vehicle license plates. “Fifty percent of property owners along Griswold Creek called us after a significant storm event,” she said. “Obviously, there’s a problem there spanning from Chester through Hunting Valley with Russell in the middle of it. Unfortunately there isn’t much grant money available.” Brennan said the Griswold Creek streambed has been moving over the past 10 years. “After one storm, a man called us saying he lost 15 feet

Chester Township Government Update The Feb. 20 regular board of trustees meeting began with the approval of minutes from the three prior regular and special meetings followed by the 2014 budget discussion for the Chester Township Park Board. Commissioners Joe Weiss and Lance Yandell reviewed the 20 12 and 20 13 projects that were completed and pro-
440-487-5733 For ALL Your Home Remodeling Needs Inquire About LAWN MAINTENANCE Specials FREE ESTIMATES -- Senior Discounts Available
vided the board with a proposed budget for 2014 that included electrical repairs and upgrades, contracted landscaping and grounds maintenance. Proposed projects for 2014 also include painting the gazebo, re-roofing the horseshoe pavilion and installing lamppost lighting along the brick walkway to the gazebo. The requested budget for 20 14 is $115,000 ($100K from Chester’s general fund and $15K from other sources). Between 20 12 and 20 13, approximately $318,000 has been spent on park improvements. The park board commented they have been addressing park repairs and maintenance that have been neglected over the past 12 years. To assist with general fund budget planning, the park board has been asked to look at longer range (three-five year) planned expenditures. Chesterfest, which was a wellattended community event coordinated by the Chesterland Chamber of Commerce in 2013, is scheduled for August this year. In other business, routine purchase orders were opened for hydraulic equipment/parts and fuel. Because of the extra snowfall, road department overtime and fuel expenditures have increased and the road superintendent is conducting an analysis on those costs. The cemetery expansion work by the contractor has been completed and final payments will be made. A bid spec has Al Salomone Chesterland OH
been prepared and submitted to local greenhouses for township flower baskets. Discussion continued regarding 2014 membership in the Chagrin River Watershed and a decision will need to be made before the final budget is due at the county on April 1. The fiscal officer reported fiscal year 2013 has been completed and the reports have been sent to the state. Craig Richter met with a payroll processor to evaluate the viability of this service to Chester Township, however at this point, it appears cost prohibitive. The evaluation of other companies will continue. The board began a discussion about the possibility of a township-issued credit card for small expenditures. Often, small checks, in the amounts of less than $15, are issued by the township and the credit card could be a way to reduce that internal work and processing costs. There were concerns about controls, documentation, tax exemption credits and responsibility. The discussion will continue. The next trustees meeting was 8 a.m. March 7. This meeting was rescheduled to Friday morning because several elected officials will be attending the auditor of state conference in Columbus on March 5-6. A major point of focus in the March 7 meeting was the 2014 general fund budget.

When Style Meets Comfort, Clients Walk Away Beautiful Bare Beauty Boutique Builds on Foundation from Former Skin Unique Business in Chester Township By Josh Echt Kelly Dolecek sat on a couch, taking in her business’s new surroundings on a sunny morning in Chester Township. The new, black couch, a sumptuous velvet piece. Clear, freshly painted walls in soft grey. A rack of hair care and skin care products, shiny bottles in a myriad of colors. Just a comfortable environment for her salon, Bare Beauty Boutique, 8399 Mayfield Road, which opened three weeks ago. “My main goal is to make my customers feel happy, special and beautiful after they walk out of my doors,” said Dolecek, a lifelong Chester Township resident and 2000 West Geauga graduate. An industry veteran of 13 years, Dolecek started her business after she wanted to branch off and start her own salon. Prior to that, she had worked at other beauty salons. Dolecek specializes in body waxing, skincare and makeup. Prior to Bare Beauty Boutique, Dolecek started Skin Unique, located in the Charter One Plaza a half-mile away. She ran Skin Unique for twoand-a-half years before moving into her new location. Bare Beauty Boutique offers more than skin care, however, she added. “Our main goal is for customers to walk in and feel comfortable,” Dolecek said, adding her salon features the couch, a coffee maker, water cooler and an array of magazines in the waiting area. Two other women, Jody Gray and Allison Hazen, are part of her business. Gray serves as the massage practitioner, while Hazen — Dolecek’s cousin — serves as the hairdresser. Hazen special-

Senior Center from page 1 Bainbridge/Auburn/Russell area. She added when the county had to close the previous Chester center several years ago for environmental reasons, Orchard Hills appeared to be the best place to re-locate it because the county, paying for a $14.7 million jail, did not have the money to buy or build another center. “You’re right,” she told Mazelski. “You don’t want to be driving 20 minutes to a center. There is a senior levy you all pay for. I looked it up and Chester residents pay $340,000 a year in taxes for that. That’s a lot of money. For $60,000 (per year for the West Geauga center), I think we’re getting a good deal.” Samide said she had been bombarded with over 40 calls from seniors upset about the comments made at the Jan. 30 meeting. “I don’t think we should upset the apple cart,” she said. Commissioner Blake Rear added, “Jessica came into the situation late and she needs time to evaluate and come up to speed. Nobody’s going to do anything to move the center.” Boalt said the West Geauga Center is open five days per week from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and has an average daily attendance of 45 and a yearly total of 1,047. Some come for hot meals and others to socialize with friends or to take part in classes, exercise and other activities. She told commissioners she had been in office only three weeks before the rental contract was set to expire and, because the DOA will have a levy on the
ballot this year, she believed it was prudent to ask for a one-year contract to give her time to study all the related issues. Former Chester Township Trustee Pat Mula took issue with Spidalieri’s statement that he had been misquoted after the Jan. 30 meeting. “Mr. Spidalieri, you clearly said you’d like to combine and move the centers to Bainbridge or Russell; that’s why everyone is here tonight,” Mula said. “You need to apologize to us. The center has been a wonderful source for seniors, not just from Chester Township, but probably Russell and Munson. “Please don’t pretend you didn’t say it, because you did,” Mula told Spidalieri. Chester Township resident Norm Traffis said he was told about the Jan. 30 meeting and watched it on YouTube. “I was shocked, not just about you, sir, but the audience and the comments from the (commissioners’) table about (how) most days, four people show up to play cards and that’s it,” he said. Traffis presented commissioners with several photos taken recently at the center, showing many people having lunch and taking part in a variety of activities. “The commissioners can’t control what somebody in the audience says,” Spidalieri replied. “There’s only so much stuff we can police. Sometimes emotions come into play. We can only control what we can control.” Not everyone in the audience supported the West Geauga center, however. Chardon resident Ed Corsi questioned the need for the county to provide services to senior citizens. He told commissioners he is a senior citizen who exercises at home, socializes
with his grandchildren and doesn’t use the senior centers. He said when he was growing up, senior citizens played cards at each other’s houses and ate at home. “I can’t see my tax money going so small groups can play cards and exercise,” Corsi said. “I don’t know where all this money is going. I resent my tax money spent on small groups who represent a small fraction of this county.” Corsi added that, after the Patterson family sold Orchard Hills for $3.4 million, they could afford to donate the center to the county. His comments were met with jeers and shouting from the audience, many of whom stood up to express their disagreement. Spidalieri called several times for order. Corsi continued to protest spending taxes on seniors. When order was restored, Chester resident Eloise Cavalier told commissioners the last four years have “been terrible” for her. “My husband had a stroke and I was in a terrible accident,” she said. “After four months in rehab, my daughter signed me up at the senior center. I didn’t want to go at first, but the people there are lovely and we have good meals. We love each other. It’s not just that we play cards. We like to be together.” After the meeting adjourned, many seniors remained to talk to commissioners and DOA officials. “I thought it was a good meeting and showed that the people of Chester feel strongly about their senior center,” Samide said. “We don’t need to consolidate the centers. We need to add one in the Auburn/Bainbridge/South Russell area. I understand that.” 24 Hr. Hotline 1-800-550-4900 www.birthright.org
Certified Collision Repair
Did You Know? In Ohio (by law) you have the right to have your vehicle repaired at the shop of your choice.
A care manager is the perfect solution to this problem. Care managers are either nurses, social workers or professionals in gerontology who have training in the services, social support and management of people who are aged, blind or disabled.
1. To relieve the caregiving stress on hand 2. To locate, plan for, coordinate and deliver the best quality of care with the resources available. 3. To help the older adult find meaning and quality of life in their later years Set up an appointment with you, your children and a geriatric care manager. The care manager will go over all the options available and determine the best combination of care for your situation. The care manager will also have knowledge on available financing and alternative payment options so you and your children will have the opportunity to explore your long term care plan. Another possible solution is to retain an elder care law firm that has an estate planning division and a long term care management department. The advantage being that you will get legal and care management under one organization. Although costly, it would save you time. Paying for nursing home care can actually be more expensive than necessary. One solution that you can use today, is day time care in an adult day center and in home care at night. Combining adult day care and in-home care will significantly reduce your daily cost of care and it will provide several hours of respite for you. There is also a program called ASSISTED LIVING AT HOME and another program called STRENGTHS. Both programs provide affordable services for those who do not want the stress of family caregiving and who want to enjoy their career and personal life but see their aging parents thrive outside of the nursing home.
