Commissioners Seek to Oust Chardon Woman Dies Mental Health Board Members In Accident in Chester By Gwen Cooper
The Geauga County Board of Commissioners is seeking advice from county Prosecutor Jim Flaiz in removing the members of the Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services. Commissioners are also looking at possibly giving the responsibilities of that board to the Geauga County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Commissioners Ralph Spidalieri and Blake Rear voted at Thursday’s meeting to ask for the prosecutor’s legal opinion and procedural advice on ousting the board in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code 340.02. Rear and Spidalieri also voted to request the prosecutor’s opinion on having the GCBDD assume the role and responsibilities of the GCBMHRS until a new mental health board could be appointed. Commissioner Mary Samide did not attend the meeting. Spidalieri brought the motions to the table in the wake of decisions by the mental health board to grant pay raises to staff, including Director Jim Adams, which Spidalieri said would have increased Adams’
Laurie Parr, 68, of Chardon, was pronounced dead at the scene following a two-vehicle accident in Chester Township just before noon last Monday, said Chester Township Police Chief Mark Purchase. Parr was going eastbound in the 9400 block of Wilson Mills Road when her 2009 Kia collided with a 20 05 Honda Pilot driven by Carolyn Shankleton, 71, of Munson Township, he said. Shankleton was transported
to Hillcrest Hospital in Mayfield Heights by Chester Township Fire and Rescue with non-critical injuries, Purchase said. Both vehicles sustained significant front end damage, the chief added. Wilson Mills Road was closed between Sandgate Drive and Sperry Road until 3:45 p.m. Evidence is being processed by the Valley Enforcement Group Accident Investigation Unit, Purchase said. No charges had been filed as of Wednesday.

salary to about $250,0 0 0, including his retire/rehire status. Spidalieri said the mental health board members showed “arrogance” at their Wednesday board meeting and “should have resigned.” “The last thing we want is to hurt members of the county that need these services because of the board’s inability to responsibly manage their funds with these outrageous salary increases,” Spidalieri said. “At their meeting last night, the
board displayed disbelief that anything was wrong.” Spidalieri introduced a third motion and asked that it be tabled until all three commissioners were present to vote on it. That motion was to request the prosecutor’s office review taking action to rescind all appropriations toward the mental health board funded through the county’s general fund.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown addresses a capacity crowd at the Geauga Democratic Pary headquarters during an April 24 visit with constituents.
Sen. Sherrod Brown visits With Geauga Democrats By Gwen Cooper
The Chesterland Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year dinner honoring John Karlovec (center) was held last Thursday. Pictured are (l to r) CCOC staff Wendy Insana and Kate Kisicki; CCOC trustees Derek Nevar, John South and Maureen Mooney; BPOY John Karlovec, owner of the Chesterland News, Geauga County Maple Leaf and Kirtland Chronicle; and CCOC trustees Frank Makoski, Gayle Tuttle, Terri Arko, Frank Arko and Michelle Graneto.
“It’s not always easy being a Democrat in Geauga County,” U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown told supporters gathered April 24 at the party’s Newbury headquarters on Kinsman Road. “I give you a lot of credit,” he said. “It’s a lot easier to be a Democrat in Cleveland.” Brown greeted some familiar faces including Russell Trustee Jim Mueller and former West Geauga Schools Board of Education members Kathy Leavenworth and Sally Gillmore. “Your sheriff needs a bigger dog,” Brown quipped when Sheriff Dan McClelland arrived and his miniature police dog, Midge, gave Brown a sniff test. “That’s one scary dog, sheriff,” he said. Brown said The Affordable Healthcare Act has resulted in
200,000 insured Ohioans who did not previously have access to health insurance. He further said that 900,000 Ohio seniors now have preventative care without a co-pay and they can save $900 per year in prescription medicines. “At no time in my lifetime has there been such an assault on a piece of legislation, like Obamacare,” Brown said. “When it was introduced, people complained about the Social Security Act. In 1965 with the passage of the Medicare Act, hospitals were told to integrate. In five years, this healthcare legislation will not be an issue.” He said the John Burch Society was similar to the Tea Party of today. “The far right doesn’t believe in government,” Brown

Brown from page 1 explained. â€œIn two years, the debate will be, why does the far right want to take away our healthcare benefits and bring back limitations for pre-existing conditions?â€? Brown relayed a story about a Cincinnati woman meeting him at the capital for coffee. â€œShe is a conservative and wants to talk to me about homeschooling,â€? he said. Then, she surprised him by thanking him for voting for The Affordable Healthcare Act. â€œShe pointed out her 15-year-old son, a diabetic, to me,â€? Brown said. â€œShe said before Obamacare, her family was turned down for insurance 34 times because of her sonâ€™s condition.â€? In addition to healthcare, Brown said he is hearing concerns about the need for job creation and the need to revitalize roads and infrastructure from his constituents. â€œWe once led the world in infrastructure, now weâ€™ve fallen behind,â€? he said. â€œOne way to pay for road improvements on a national level is to close some of the tax loopholes on corporations. Instead of giving large corporations a tax credit for moving their factories
Commissioners from page 1 In the motion, he asked that these general fund monies â€œbe directed to another agency that would oversee the use of the funds in a fiscally responsible manner so that services that those funds support are not affected in any way.â€? He further stipulated these funds would be re-allocated to the mental

Adult Day Service Aide Margaret Duncan assists three senior citizens at Friday’s luncheon.
Luncheon a Maple-Flavored Walk Down Memory Lane By Josh Echt
The Geauga County Maple Festival is all about Tradition, with a capital T. Maple products. Rides. French fries. Bathtub races. And, of course, The Loretta Mae Holmes Maple Celebration luncheon, held at the Chardon Methodist Church Friday. The luncheon honored Holmes, a long-time festival volunteer, and featured food and entertainment from Carol Starre-Kmiecik, a one-woman character show based in Lakewood. Starre-Kmiecik performed as Dorothy Fuldheim, a journalist for the Cleveland Press and WEWS-TV in Cleveland, for 45 minutes to a crowd of enthusiastic seniors. “The seniors are among my best audiences,” Starr-Kmiecik said. “I love performing for them.”
Two Events Into One For several decades, Holmes, 95, helped coordinate the festival’s Old Timer’s Luncheon. The tradition both offered a meal and entertainment to area seniors and also recognized couples married more than 50 years and those seniors 90 years or older, said event organizer Karen Stone. A few years ago, the event designation changed from Old Timer’s Luncheon to its current name, honoring Holmes, who retired from the event planning committee. Stone, also a Geauga County Department on Aging administrative assistant, said the department took over event planning after Holmes retired. It also received serving help from Chardon High School students in National Honor Society/Interact Club. In the past, the luncheon took place on Friday and the Department on Aging offered a Senior Day on Saturday. Two years ago, both the luncheon and senior

www.geaugamapleleaf.com day were combined into a one-day Friday event, Stone said. “I just love putting it together,” she said of the event, adding Chardon resident David Lelko was also instrumental to its success. “It’s just a lot of fun. “It’s fun congratulating the 90-yearplus seniors, along with couples married over 50 years,” Stone added. “It amazes me the amount of over-90-year-olds we have attending.” Betty Mohney, of Chardon, said Holmes “has donated so much to the community” and said she was proud to know her. Mohney also said she knew Holmes through volunteer work with the Order of the Eastern Star, a fraternal organization related to Freemasonry. Adult Day Service Aide Margaret Duncan said many seniors received transportation from their homes to the event via Geauga Transit buses. Duncan — who said her family has known Holmes for at least 25 years — said the seniors received pastries and coffee in the morning and a ham dinner later that day. The place settings included tablecloths and formal silverware. “This is a new experience for them,” Duncan said. “They are made to feel special.” County Commissioner Mary Samide said the county’s seniors deserve recognition. “We should always recognize them and know their contributions are priceless,” the commissioner said. “We should make sure our seniors are taken care of. They built this county.”

By Ann Wishart With the election primaries approaching, Geauga County residents are used to seeing large campaign post cards mixed in with their mail. But a post card some residents could find very useful was mailed out April 15. This one will provide a free prescription discount card through a partnership between Geauga County and ProAct, county Administrator Dave Lair said. The card offers discounts for all prescription medications as well as pet medications that can be filled at regular retail pharmacies, Lair said. â€œParticipants can expect to save an average of 10 to 20 percent off the full cash price of name brand medications and 20 to 70 percent off the full cash price for generic prescriptions,â€? he said. The cards are free to residents, but canâ€™t be used in conjunction with any other type of insurance, to reduce copays or with other discount programs, Lair said. â€œWe hear about people who canâ€™t afford the medications they need, people who will go without necessary prescriptions because itâ€™s a choice between the medication or putting food on the table,â€? he said. County Commissioner Mary Samide said purchasing necessary medication should never have to be a choice.
â€œBy partnering with ProAct, we are able to address this issue and provide financial relief at the pharmacy counter for many residents,â€? she said. The free cards are anonymous, can be used by an entire family and a personâ€™s age and income donâ€™t matter, said Terrance Oâ€™Neill, ProAct program manager, during the commissioners April 15 meeting. All pharmacies in Geauga County have agreed to participate in the program, he said, adding the cards, paid for by ProAct, are pre-activated. â€œThere are no fees for participating and the discounts are provided directly at the pharmacy,â€? said Kathleen Hostutler, county benefit specialist. Commissioner Blake Rear said the discount card program is a win-win for Geauga County residents. â€œWe encourage every resident to put the discount cards in their wallet or purse to ensure they never have to pay the full cash price for their prescription medications,â€? he said. If a resident is worried he or she may have thrown the post card away or never got one, Lair said another may be printed by going to www.OHRxDiscount Card.com. For more information and a list of participating pharmacies, call ProAct at 877-776-2285 or visit the online website www.OHRxDiscountCard.com.

Mollé Signs with Mercyhurst Makayla Mollé, senior at West Geauga High School, signed her National Letter of Intent to play volleyball at Mercyhurst University last week. Makayla was highly recruited as a 6-1 setter and has been described by her coach as a true leader on and off the court. She chose Mercyhurst University for its strong academics along with its impressive volleyball program, coached by Ryan and Jenell Patton. Mercyhurst University participates in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, which is a very competitive conference. “Makayla is so thankful for everyone that helped her get to where she is today,” her parents wrote in an email. “She plans to major in the medical field and looks forward to the next four years ahead of her.”

On April 21, Bill Galiardi and Heidi Clark attended an in-salon private educational event with one of L’oreal’s top color designers, Christine Longston. This all-day training allowed them to access the most comprehensive Balayage education in the industry. It featured two new forms of highlighting, including Balayage Hombre and also a technique called Criss-Cross. The intensive hands-on class focused on the use of a free-hand sweeping method to create natural looking, “sunkissed” looks with a diffused root for the
“just back from vacation” style. “We took this training also to learn the use of the ammonia-free bleach to accompany our Inoa ammonia-free coloring system, which we were the first in Geauga County to use, beginning four years ago,” Galiardi said. “This reaffirms the belief that the ammonia-free bleach and color are the wave of the future, as they are less damaging to the hair. These products help control the underlying pigment in order to give the best color results. This is the way our industry is headed, and we at Galiardi’s want to be leaders in the field, not followers.” Call 440-729-1304 for more details.

Chester Government Update On April 10, the Chester Township Trustees held a special meeting to approve financial items (fuel, parts, natural gas, initial 2014 operation funding for Chester Township Park Board) and approval for Chester Township CleanUp Day expenditures. On April 17, the boardâ€™s regular meeting began with a presentation by the Ohio Insurance Services Agency regarding the opportunity to participate in the Ohio Public Entity Healthcare Cooperative. The cooperative includes more than 250 townships, villages and cities. As a cooperative, members are exempt from the 2.4 percent Market Share Tax associated with the Affordable Care Act, and future cost increases are tiered, based on risk performance. The health insurance carrier and program would be the same one as currently in effect. Because a decision on renewal was due by May 1, the trustees voted to renew our current health care. The yearover-year cost increase from 2013 was about 3 percent. Our health insurance policy is on a month-to-month renewal. If after additional research it appears the OPEC-HC is favorable, the township has until October to make a change by board motion to apply. The board passed a motion regarding the supply of various aggregates based on review of bids received and recommendation by the road superintendent. The township also joined the Community University Education Purchasing Association for a $200 annual fee. CUE will enable us to purchase salt and evaluate competitive pricing for various items including custodial and office supplies, office furniture and vehicles. Ken Radtke and Bud Kinney were appointed as representatives for the Valley Enforcement Regional Council of

Governments (The trustees are evaluating the benefits of VERCOG membership and bylaws require notification by July 1 on continuation for next year). The board also approved the second budgeted operation expense of $21,348 for the park board for miscellaneous expenses including repainting the gazebo, mulch for the playground area and preparation of the baseball field. Fiscal Officer Craig Richter explained his research on moving $400,000 currently in the EMS checking account into the townshipâ€™s sweep account to accrue interest and proposed changing our document destruction pickup schedule to quarterly rather than monthly, saving about $320 per year. The board continued discussion on revising the vacation policy as we work to update the townshipâ€™s policy manual. Members of our road department recently attended training provided through the Geauga County Engineerâ€™s Office on municipal storm water housekeeping, excavation, Ohio Utilities Protection Service safety, and traffic zone safety with the Ohio Department of Transportationâ€™s Local Technical Assistance Program. Free wood chips and mulch are available for Chester residents only. First, stop by the Chester Township Road Department and sign a waiver form for permitted access. You will need to load and haul materials yourself. The township site is open Monday through Friday during business hours. Contact Chester Township Road Department (Rob Pealer, 440-729-9110) for questions. The next regular board meeting is May 1. The ddepartment heads have been asked to attend.

From The Park Commission We, the Chester Township Park Board, encourage you to review our 2012 and 2013 developments and completed improvements at Parkside.

events National Day of Prayer May 1, noon The Chesterland Ministerial Association would like to invite neighbors and friends to come together and join the nation in prayer. Gather at the Chesterland Baptist Church, 12670 Chillicothe Road, Chester Township to lift hearts and voices up in prayer. The theme for the 20 14 National Day of Prayer is “One Voice, United in Prayer,” emphasizing the need for individuals to join together in corporate prayer, calling upon the unfailing character of God, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities and men — the God under whom this nation stands. Meet on the church lawn across from the town hall (weather permitting) to show concern for communities and the
nation, and to share in the glory of Christian fellowship as everyone prays together. The association asks each member of the community to encourage their churches to participate in this wonderful event. Call the Rev. Joe Woods, 440-7297101, for more information.

IS IT TIME FOR ASSISTED LIVING? 2 OPTIONS IF YOUR PARENTS DO NOT WANT TO GO QUESTION: My dad passed away last year and my mom
is not adjusting well. At the time, the doctor wanted her to be tested for dementia but she does not think that anything is wrong with her. She is mad at the doctor for saying that she may have dementia and does not want to ever go back to that doctor. She is beginning to wander in the afternoons. Last month, she locked herself out of the house although her keys were in her pocket. Is it time for assisted living? ANSWER: Sometimes, dehydration, electrolyte imbalances and the symptoms of depression look like the symptoms of dementia. Your first course of action should be is to have the doctor screen her for dehydration and depression. If she is dehydrated or depressed the correct treatment may diminish the dementia symptoms that you are seeing. With the loss of your father, it is possible that she has not grieved and needs counseling and treatment. 2 OPTIONS WHEN IT IS NOT TIME FOR ASSISTED LIVING First, let me say that assisted living is a great place for people who want to be a part of a larger community and who do not mind downsizing. Most assisted living suites are studios. If she does not want to go, here are 2 options for you. #1. Live-in care also known as ASSISTED LIVING AT HOME. Cost range from $9.95-$13.50/hr., see www.NghtingaleHomeSupport.com or 440-942-9933. Care is brought to her so she does not have to move. Sometimes, it could cost less than some assisted living facilities.
for the Young of Heart St. Anselm Young of Heart will meet at noon May 2 at the parish center. Bring brown bag lunch. Dessert and beverages provided. Entertainment by Sandra Zikursh (Mrs. Noah), who will give a humorous look at life on the ark. The group will head to the Canton Palace Theatre by bus on May 20 to see Vicki Lawrence and “Mama,” a
two-woman show. Remember Vicki from the Carol Burnett show? This funny show is a mixture of stand-up comedy, music and observations about real life. Cost is $78 for members or $81 for nonmembers and includes main floor seating at the theatre and lunch at the Cathedral Buffet. Call Jeri, 440-729-2239, for reservations or more information.

#2. Adult Day Health & In-Home Care: Combining adult day care and in home care will reduce her cost by almost half. The night time care can also be done by a privately paid caregiver some of whom will provide care for a small stipend or in exchange for living accommodation. A certified care manager will be able to help facilitate this option for you. The best places to locate certified care managers are www.NAPGCM.org, www.NCPC.com, www.NACCM.com. Lastly, take a few moments to review some of the 200 plus articles at www.careohio.org. The key to successful caregiving is being informed. For a step by step guide on how to manage this process by yourself, go to amazon and download the Caregiver’s Cliff Notes: 27 Things To Do When Your Parents are Losing Their Independence. You will discover the steps to take, phone numbers to call, how to talk to your parents so they would listen and what to do when money is tight and there is no time to wait.

Faith Renewed My faith was renewed on Good Friday by Patti Bauer. First thing on Friday morning, I went to the drive thru of Chase Bank in Chester Townsip and withdrew $40 0 (four $100 bills). Then, around 1 p.m., I was looking for my cash and I couldnâ€™t find it anywhere, so I retraced my steps and ended up at Chase. My husband ran into the bank to see if anyone turned in the cash ... I thought
that was a ridiculous thing to do. Who would turn in cash? Believe it or not, someone left their name and number with the teller and said they found money in the parking lot. Thank you Patti Bauer (she works in the office at Bremecâ€™s Garden Center) for your honesty, for restoring my faith in people and reminding me why I chose to raise my children in such a wonderful community.
