First Consumer Connection Expo Deemed a Success By Diane Ryder Officials from Geauga County’s five chambers of commerce and business leaders called Wednesday’s Consumer Connection a huge success. For the first time this year, the chambers’ members opened the doors of their annual afterhours networking expo to the public as a way to make residents aware of local goods and services available to them as well as encourage them to patronize Geauga County businesses. Thursday’s event, from 47:30 p.m. at the Burton branch of Kent State University, attracted an estimated 40 0 people who squeezed up and down aisles of booths offering free samples of foods, displays of products, free items and advice about services available to them. The displays spilled into the library and TV lounge, while workshops were held in a classroom on topics such as gardening, home technology and dog training.

An adjacent gallery held a Chinese auction of products donated by the businesses, including fireplace equipment, an electronic toothbrush, a Kindle and gift certificates. Businesses from throughout the county and beyond were represented, including Geothermal Professionals of Bainbridge Township, We’ll Remember Creative Gift Service of Russell Township and Chesterland Family Dental Care. Expo chairman Brian Brockway of the Burton Chamber of Commerce said he was very pleased with the turnout. “It’s been pretty crowded the whole time,” Brockway said. “I’m very happy with it, since it is the first year we’ve gone in this direction. The vendors are happy because they’ve seen a lot of activity and interest.” “It’s an excellent crowd,” said Geauga County Commissioner Tracy Jemison, who was attending the event with county Administrator David Lair. “Everybody seems happy,

people are asking a lot of questions of the business owners and there certainly are a lot of vendors,” Jemison said. “It’s definitely drawing a big crowd,” said Colleen Lockhart, who was manning the Geauga Safety Council’s booth. “I’m here to promote the

safety council to the businesses in Geauga County,” she said. Lockhart’s nonprofit organization, co-sponsored by the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation and the Middlefield Chamber of Commerce, offers education on safety and health topics. Next to Lockhart’s booth,

Chardon resident Marilyn Fisher grimaced as she sampled a meatball at the Chow Down booth. “It’s good, but hot,” Fisher said as she nibbled on the sample.

West Geauga Draws Input From Munson Trustees: Public on Next Superintendent Proceed With Plan C By Cassandra Shofar

By Ann Wishart

West Geauga Schools Board of Education pulled in roughly 15 to 20 residents Monday night for its special community input meeting to help steer the ship on its superintendent search. Board President Bill Beers requested all audience members submit index cards listing characteristics they desire in the next superintendent, said Treasurer Michele Tullai. “Geauga County Educational Service Center Superintendent Matt Galemmo was also there,” Tullai said. “He’s helping (the board). He’s also a resident of the West Geauga district. He’s going to help go through the applications when they come in.” The current superintendent, Tom Diringer, announced his resignation April 9 after serving two years of his three-year contract, which pays $110,000 annually. He replaced longtime Superintendent Tony Podojil in 2010. Since then, the school board has decided to take the reins — with the help of Galemmo — on the search, rather than go through the Ohio School Boards Association as they did last time.

With only two Munson Township trustees fully on board with Plan A — which had estimated costs higher than expected — for the town hall redesign, Architect Henry “Hank” Penttila literally went back to the drawing board.

Tullai

Part of this new approach includes outreach to the community to glean as much input as possible, Beers said. “We’ve heard from the community survey done in January, people want to hear more from the board and more input, so we felt it was important to have this kind of meeting to give the community that kind of opportunity,” he said. “I thought (the meeting) went OK. We didn’t know what kind of turn out we would get. We appreciate the community expressing their desires and concerns as we begin our superintendent search. ” The public can also provide input via the school website up

until the deadline for superintendent applications, which is May 25, Beers said. “We are trying to get input in multiple ways in addition to the community meeting,” he said. “And we’ve gotten people responding (on the site) even before the community meeting.” Beers said board members also attended the Chesterland Rotary Senior Dinner Wednesday night and gave those in attendance an opportunity to provide feedback as well. “We got a lot of the same type of thing from them as well,” he said, referring to

“The less we impose changes on this building, the better off we’ll be.” – Architect Hank Penttila Last Tuesday, Penttila received unanimous approval from trustees to proceed with Plan C following an explanation of how and why his most recent drawing has the new space added onto the southwest side of the existing town hall shell. On April 24, Penttila presented trustees with a model and an estimated price tag of $1,328,910. Their reaction led him to review the costs and logistics of Plan A, in which he planned to remove walls to enlarge the existing community room and create a welcoming lobby.

Besides concerns from trustees, Penttila said Tuesday he’d had further conversation with his structural engineer. “That conversation … caused me to revisit the project entirely,” he said. “The walls of this building are not structurally capable of supporting the structural loads required for expansion.” The best approach is to leave the shell of the town hall intact and work within it to renovate the spaces, he said. “The less we impose changes on this building, the better off we’ll be,” he said. “Structurally, it is adequate for what it does.” He presented a drawing of Plan C, which has the current town hall and community room reconfigured as office space and an enlargement of the current meeting room. In Plan C, the lobby would be built onto the west side of the south wall of the main building and connect to the community room on the lobby’s southwest corner. Financially, Penttila said the plan will be better. Although he didn’t have dollars attached to the new construction, he said the high-

Consumer from page 1 The Chow Down booth was very busy as representatives gave out bacon wrapped dates as well as the meatballs. The food booths appeared to be the most popular as people sampled brownies from Kaufman’s Catering, mini sandwiches from Rise and Dine and chocolate covered pretzels from White House Chocolates. “I like this show very much,” Fisher said. “It’s a good opportunity to go around and see what’s offered here. It gives us a good idea of where we can find things and get ideas about things we’d like to do.” Further down the aisle, Geauga Tourism Council Director Lynda Nemeth gave out Geauga County trivia quizzes. “I love to do these local shows and watch the interesting people,” Nemeth said. “We give out this quiz because it’s fun to see how well people know Geauga County. They think they do, but this shows them maybe they don’t know as much as they think they know.”   Tom Sulzer, owner of Sulco

recurring themes being brought up. At the community meeting, Beers shared the characteristics people sent in and put them up on a screen to discuss. “Community involvement was a big one,” Tullai said. “And integrity, leadership, a business sense, transparency ... to know the culture of the community.” The board also discussed how the previous superintendent search was handled and the process the board will use to

IT’S NOT GOING AWAY!

Wes Smith, of Chardon, asks questions at the Geothermal booth.

Chimneys of Chester Township, said this was his first local show. “I didn’t know what to expect, but the crowds are good I’m getting good and responses,” Sulzer said as he placed a donation on the Chinese Auction table. To 9-year-old Wes Smith, the expo gave him a chance to help promote his mother’s business, First Light Home Care in Chardon. “I get to pass stuff out,” Wes said. “It’s fun to meet people and help my mom.” Wes also made the rounds of the booths, asking questions

about geothermal heating and picking up a few freebies. Later, he took home one of five door prizes — baskets of products worth at least $10 0 that were donated by each chamber of sponsoring commerce. “This is great,” Wes said, grinning proudly as he struggled to carry the huge basket. Brockway said the vendors were pleased with the event and the enthusiasm that residents showed toward what they had to offer. “We’re definitely going to do this again next year,” he said.

investigate the current candidates, which will be slightly more flexible. “It’s different. When OSBA did the search, they gave the board specific questions to ask, so the board asked the same questions to each candidate in the first round,” Tullai explained. “Whereas this time, the board will not necessarily stick specifically to those questions, like if one questions leads to something else they think is important, they can interject that question. The technique used will be a little different.” The board also asked residents how they felt about the superintendent living in the school district. “I kind of got the feeling that people didn’t feel it was necessary that they live in the West Geauga (district), but in

order to be able to participate in events, you’d want to be close,” Tullai said. Beers said community involvement came through really loudly. “I would say that one stood out,” he said. “I’m in the process of tabulating and characterizing (the cards) to see which things really stand out. We read them aloud to everybody ... you keep hearing recurring themes.” Beers is receiving all the applications, Tullai said, adding those will go to the Geauga County Education Service Center. “(Galemmo) will go through them. He will know what the board is looking for as far as priorities,” she said. “They'll be divided out by that and then the board will choose who they want to interview in the first round.”

Plan C from page 1 ceilinged community room will be less expensive to construct than in Plan A, where walls had to be demolished first. Besides saving money, Plan C has very good logistics of operation, Penttila said. The community section of the facility can be kept entirely separate from offices and a series of doors connects the meeting room to the lobby, where new restrooms are planned. A caucus or small meeting room is still part of the plan. Because there will be less demolition in the office area, the staff will be able to continue working without the necessity of moving to another location such as a trailer, Penttila said. Also, the footprint of the proposed addition isn’t that different from Plan A, so the site plan can stay the same, he added. “My structural engineer said ‘Our headaches are over,’” Penttila said. Improvements to the current building to improve energy efficiency could include walls framed on the inside of the concrete block allowing space for wiring and insulation. Windows will be replaced, Penttila said, adding highefficiency lighting will be installed. Visitors will still enter the building from the south, as in Plan A. From the lobby, they will be directed to the community room on the left, offices and meeting room straight ahead or to new restrooms to the right, according to the plan blueprint. The community room section includes the kitchen and a large storage space for chairs and tables. The standing seam steel roof will have a 6/12 pitch, so it will match the rest of the structure, Penttila said, adding the ceiling in the community room will be two feet higher than in the current structure. The new construction will actually save the township money and add about 20 0 square feet compared to Plan A,

bringing the total to 8,810 square feet, he said, “This is still much, much less expensive,” Penttila said. “I’m very happy with it. I’m anxious to move ahead with it.” Specifically, the architect said he is more optimistic about the budget, the construction schedule and the quality of building for the amount of money the trustees want to spend. The current community room will be redesigned into office space, a part of the project that can be done with

minimal disturbance to the staff, Penttila said, adding it not require them to relocate during construction. Not having to demolish walls and modify the structure will create a significant savings, he said. Trustees were in favor of the general plan and discussed a variety of possible alterations. The architect urged them to take time to review the drawings and discuss changes. “It’s all on paper — anything can change. And it has,” Penttila said.

Dear Editor, Congratulations to Chris Setigerwald, her staff and the volunteers in CASA for KIDS of Geauga County for being recognized as "heroes" by the American Red Cross. Geauuga County's CASA volunteers provide valuable guardian ad litem services, protecting the best interest of children involved in abuse, neglect and dependency cases adjudicated by the Geauga County Juvenile Court. I see the benefit of the CASA GAL progran in my court on a firsthand basis. Every year,

CASA volunteers quietly contribute countless hours for the protection of children in vulnerable situations. Since these guardian services are

provided at no cost to the county for the guardian's times, Geauga County taxpayers save more than $300,000 per year. Even more importantly, the positive contributions that CASA guardians make for the welfare of the children they protect in Geauga County are priceless. The recognition of the Geauga County CASA for KIDS program and its selfless volunteer guardians by the American Red Cross is well deserved. Sincerely, Judge Timothy J. Grendell
