Roman-Inspired Garden Stones to Honor ‘Captain Latin’ By Gwen Cooper


Latin students Max Kucera and Victoria Grabinski mix concrete and scoop it into metal pans to form the round garden stones.

Following the advice “Carpe diem,” of noted Roman poet Horace, about 25 West Geauga Latin students did “seize the day” last Thursday. They worked feverously to create mosaic garden stones as gifts for their favorite teacher, Bill Prueter, who plans to retire this year after 30 years of service. With help from parents, the students mixed concrete, poured it into round metal pans and personalized them with mosaics, beads, shells and messages, making each one an original work of art. The students were divided into three shifts and worked around various sports practices and a previously scheduled band concert to complete their projects. They presented their original creations to Prueter Monday night at the conclusion

of the school’s annual student Latin awards program. The students who comprise West G’s Latin Club invited former students and Prueter’s wife to attend and join in on the fun.

“He makes it fun.” – Tyler Brininger on retiring Latin teacher Bill Prueter They also created a Facebook page where present and former students could add their comments and sing the praises of Prueter. Although, considered a “dead” language because it is no longer learned as a native tongue, Prueter apparently instilled a love of the language and the Roman culture among his students. From his toga-making work sessions held at his home to his hallway chariot races at school using ropes, sturdy flat-bottom

trays and eager students, Prueter encouraged creativity and made the language come to life. “We celebrated Roman holidays and held ceremonies,” second-year Latin student Lilly Makee said when asked about her favorite part of the classes. According to her, Prueter led them to explore the history, literature, custom and culture surrounding the language. “He makes it fun,” Tyler Brininger said. “You just enjoy the experience without knowing that you are learning anything. It’s not until later that you realize you actually learned a great deal in the process.” There are a number of advantages to studying Latin, according to Tyler’s mother, Tamara Brininger. “It really improves their vocabulary and helps with their scores on college entrance

Chesterland Rotary Wolverines Win Five Straight, Is ‘Hitting the Bricks’ Eclipse Last Year’s Win Total By Maureen Mooney In 1995, the Chesterland Rotary Club funded and constructed a brick walkway around the gazebo in the Chester Township Park. Families, businesses and organizations had the opportunity to display their name on these engraved bricks. Now, 18 years later, the Rotary Club is reconstructing the walkway to include more bricks as well as refurbish the existing ones.

“Over time, some of the bricks have deteriorated and the entire walkway has sunk,” said Rotary member Derek Taylor. “It’s also become a trip hazard”, added Taylor. Taylor and a committee consisting of eight members, including Ben Pintabona, resurrected the project last year, with everything getting started this past winter. Pintabona, who has a con-

By Jamie Ward Maybe the coach thought his team needed a change of scenery. But after just two home games in the first month of the season amid cancelations on a field that grew more weeds than grass, Phil Byron decided to start from scratch. “It wasn't a varsity field, it wasn't safe, it wasn't aesthetic,” Byron said. “We’ve been road warriors. When our field wasn’t playable, we just flipped games away.” Whatever the reasons, it is good times for Phil Byron and his West G baseball Wolverines, winners of five straight. The team’s ninth win, 4-1 over Crestwood, eclipsed last year's win total. The Wolverines took infield practice before the Crestwood game as the former infield lay back behind right field, a pile of dirt and sod. The now all-dirt infield is smooth, and hard. Ground balls bounced true and the team made just one error on an 80 degree day May 2. By all accounts the team is playing its best baseball of the season at the right time. “It’s good to get five in a

row,” said senior 2B Alex Grazia. “We’re playing pretty well as a team. We started off a little slow, but we’re definitely kicking it in before the playoffs.” Grazia helps anchor a team with senior strength up the middle. When West Geauga is at its best, Harrison Sigman (2-2, 2.74 ERA, 24 strikeouts in 23 innings) is on the mound; Cal

Slusarz (9 runs scored) is at short; Grazia plays second; and senior lead-off hitter Noah Bidar (.375 BA, 10 SB's) patrols center field. “That’s our speed and strength right there, and they’ve cut down on the mistakes,” Byron said. “It started off a little rough,” Slusarz said of his season. “But

Garden Stones from page 1 exams, such as SAT and ACTs,” she said. She said the language has practical applications for student who pursue medicine, law and science, all disciplines that use Latin terms and names. According to another parent, several of the students have older siblings who are former students of Prueter’s who credit their Latin studies as part of the reason they did well on college entrance exams and were accepted to schools such as Notre Dame and Northwestern. “He treats us all as if we are the smart kids,” Victoria Grabinski said. Brenden Judson explained, “There’s a lot of freedom in his class and he trusts us that we will study hard and learn from our experiences.” One mother, Linda Todaro, shook her head over the apparent spell Prueter has on his students. She said they vie to learn enough to go to Latin competitions in Columbus, a regime of study and nine tests held during a weekend, after a week of school.

Todaro said the students do well in the competition, often placing in the top three among schools and outscoring private school students who have had six years of Latin versus four years at West G. “That’s not something that would appeal to you or I, nor it is something that would appeal to most teens, but he somehow has them convinced it is fun,” Todaro said. “They study on the bus on the drive there, take a test as soon as they arrive, study until 1 a.m., sleep and take more tests the next day. And, they tell me this is fun?” Said Alex Concilla, “That’s why we call him ‘Captain Latin.’” Another parent marveled at the closeness of the students. “They include athletes, musicians, serious students and a wide cross-section of interests, yet they are very close,” she said. Who’s idea was it to pay tribute to him with garden stones? “All of us,”said sophomore Max Kucera. “Romans were known for their mosaics tiles and we’ve been to his house. He has a Roman garden there as well as on school grounds near

the entrance to the high school.” “With all the heartfelt work the students have done, we’re expecting there won’t be a dry eye in the house when they present their garden stones to him Monday night,” Tamara Brininger said.

Those four runs were all West Geauga would need to improve to 9-6 on the season before Sunday’s tournament draw at Jefferson and two games Monday and Tuesday against rival Chagrin Falls that were finished after deadline. “We're playing well right now and I’m really content with where we are at,” Byron said. “I’m not saying we don’t need to improve, because we all need to get better.

Carmen Engoglia hit a HR that turned heads away from the varsity field to the junior varsity field, which is behind the varsity field. Engoglia's blast landed beyond the left field fence, as the varsity dugout wondered who had hit it. “I knew it would be Carmen,” Bidar said after the game. The team plans on re-planting the sod this fall and working

to get a running water source to the field, an issue Byron blamed for its poor conditions. There are quirks, too, that need fixing.

Chester Officials: Obamacare May Reshape Local Fire Departments By Diane Ryder When the Affordable Health Care for America Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, takes full effect next year, its regulations about insuring part-time workers might have repercussions on local government, especially those with volunteer fire departments, Chester Township officials said April 18. If a seasonal or part-time employee works more than 120 days per year, or more than 30 hours per week, he or she will be considered full-time and must be offered health care insurance or the employer will be hit with a hefty $2,000 per total employee penalty, Chester Township Fiscal Officer Mike Stark said. The regulations could force local governments to cut back on the hours their employees can work, cut back on the number of days they can employ a seasonal worker or decide not to hire additional workers that would add up to more than 50 employees, the officials said. The discussion came as trustees voted to hire a part-time seasonal worker to perform grounds maintenance during the growing season, a practice that many local communities follow. Others hire outside landscaping companies.

“If it’s more than 120 days and we haven’t offered them benefits, we could be fined,” Stark told trustees, adding the rule applies to employers with more than 50 employees. “With our police department and fire department, we’re close to that threshold,” Trustee Ken Radtke said. “We need to be looking at this at a month-tomonth basis.” Because most area fire departments, and many local police departments, have parttime workers who also work for other communities, the issue could become complicated, trustees said. They also said they would be careful to keep all seasonal hires under the 120-day limit to make sure they will not be considered as full time under the new law. “Seasonal employment is counted in days and not hours,” Trustee Mike Joyce said. Radtke asked where he got that fact. Joyce said he has talked to officials in the City of Willoughby, who told him they have hired two attorneys to sort out the employment rules in the new law. “I don’t know where it’s going, but our firefighters are

I’m starting to play the type of baseball I know I can play, starting to hit the ball a little more, making fewer errors in the field, and I cleared my head, and I'm just having fun playing baseball and that’s the key.” Byron’s lineup against Crestwood looked like this: Bidar, CF; Mike Bielek, LF; Mike Koller, RF; JC Mazzurco, P; Sigman, DH; John Monaco, 1B; Andrew Centrackio, 3B; Grazia, 2B; Slusarz, SS. The Wolverines scored first in the first inning when Bidar reached on an error and scored on Bielek’s hit down the right field line. Bielek stole second, went to third on a ground ball and scored on a wild pitch. Mazzurco, a sophomore who now has 20 innings and an ERA under 2.00 as the team's third starter, pitched masterfully, mixing his fastball, change-up and curveball through the Crestwood order. Mazzurco, working with junior catcher Ross Clark, threw six innings, allowed one run on




part time,” he said. Stark added, “There’s so much to be determined yet. No one knows everything at this time.” He said he has heard employers say they will pay the fine instead of insure their parttime workers, but he said the new rules will fine an employer for all of his or her employees regardless of how many are insured. “It will be $2,0 0 0 for all employees, on everybody, not just on the people you don’t pay,” Stark said. Joyce added, “Suffice it to say, we’re all watching it and are confused by it.”

Football, Environmental Teams Partner to Primp West G for Prom By Ann Wishart What do water purifiers in Guatemala, flowerbeds at West Geauga Schools, May Day and a sophomore offensive tackle have in common? In a multiple choice quiz, one answer would be “mulch.” Another would be “school spirit.” The rest — fill in the blanks. Last Wednesday after school, about 25 members of the West Geauga Schools football team, coach Lou Cirino, members of the schools’ Environmental Discovery Project team and its advisor Irene McMullen gathered at the high school for some hands-on volunteer work.

He even had to show a few the right way to use a shovel, she said. “I think the boys thought it was fun,” she said. “When you’re done, you can see you’ve done something.” Sandwiches from Farmer in the Deli were an added bonus, but McMullen said the project itself was rewarding for the work crew.


struction background, came up with the original project in 1995, is still active on the board and project today. Once a brick is engraved, it’s filled with adhesive paint to make the lettering stand out and help preserve the engravement. The Rotary Club consists of volunteers from the community and will be doing the labor, start to finish. Deadline to order the bricks is June 15. The finished project will be done by mid August, in time for Chesterfest, the annual Chester Township community picnic. Proceeds from this project benefits the Chesterland Rotary Foundation, a nonprofit and tax deductible organization. “This is a great way to show community support and spirit and pride,” Taylor added. Bricks are available for purchase at (click on the brick) for $50 (individuals) or $75 (businesses). Order forms are also available on page 7 of this publication.

from page 5 Kelly Wright and Shawn Cooper joined up to form a core group and they started entering environmental challenges. Most recently, the EDP won an award from the Lexus Ecological Challenge for their project to provide water purifiers and cook stoves to a village in Guatemala, said Max Kucera, 16, offensive tackle for the West Geauga football team and a member of the EDP. They chose the project, organized their approach, paid for the stoves and purifiers and sent a Spanish-speaking expert to Guatemala to handle that end of it, Kucera said. EDP has applied to a number of challenges every year and has a little prize money saved up, he said. The seven annual flower gardens created around the West Geauga school campus by students require maintenance, but the school’s operating budget has been caught in the same fiscal wringer as other districts, McMullen said. Urged to do their community service by Cirino, 29, the football team has taken the maintenance on. The team does other chores in the school district and any donations go into the football program, Cirino said. The coach, who has been teaching government and contemporary issues at West Geauga for six years, said he goes along and works with the boys to set the pace and help them learn a good work ethic. “They love our school,” he said. “I had a coach who did that for me.” Some of the EDP prize money is used to purchase the mulch, which is sold by the West Geauga la cross team to raise funds for their activities — another lesson in leveraging resources for the good of the community, McMullen said. Not only do they sell the mulch, they will deliver it to the buyer’s home, she said. More information is available on the school website. “It’s so sweet. This is why I love to live in the country,” McMullen said. Getting the flowerbeds in order is something of an annual ritual carried out in a group effort before prom, so the school looks great, she said. Cirino, who graduated from West Geauga, really knows how to motivate kids and the results prove it, she added. “It’s such a thoughtful project and a way of building teamwork and pride in your school,” McMullen said. Andrew Todaro, 16 and a member of the EDP, said there were a lot of people at the May Day event and he praised the football team for really digging in. “We gave them food and they worked hard,” he said.

Chester Dumpster Issue Heats Up By Diane Ryder Chester Township Trustees appear so frustrated over placement of recycling dumpsters, they would like to get rid of them altogether. Last month, Trustee Ken Radtke suggested moving the bank of dumpsters from their current Parkside Drive location back to the old Chester School site at 12535 Chillicothe Road. Township officials and Park Board members have told trustees they need to be moved because they are too close to the park, are on a street frequently used by police and fire vehicles, and have become a safety issue. At the April 18 meeting, two residents had objected to the Chester School site because they said dumping of trash and garbage at that location had been a constant problem for neighbors. Radtke said the township would install security cameras if the dumpsters were moved. Trustees said a second option, placing them at the unused Fire Station 2, would not be acceptable because of traffic concerns. Last Thursday, Radtke said he had asked trustees to look into the Chester School site, but had received no feedback. He said he had received a rough estimate that it would cost about $18,000 to locate the dumpsters there, with a cost of $15,000 for concrete and $3,000 for fencing. “Any thoughts?” Radtke asked. Joyce said he has discussed the issue with Chester Township Park Board member Joe Weiss and Weiss told him he might have a solution to the problem. “He was kind of excited and seemed to be having something up his sleeve,” Joyce said, adding he would like to follow up with Weiss before making any decisions. Joyce said the dumpsters are more trouble than they’re worth and he might be in favor of doing away with them altogether. “There’s no good place to put the dumpsters,” Joyce said. “They’re nice to have, but it’s a case of ‘not in my backyard. I’m not sure we even need those dumpsters.” He said any money they make from the recycling is lost in the road crew’s time in cleaning it up. “This board hasn’t discussed this yet, but I’m rather disturbed how haphazardly we use that facility,” Joyce said. Trustee Judy Caputo said she is concerned about people using the center to dispose of

their household garbage instead of paying about $300 per year for curbside pickup. “It’s a sign of the times,” Caputo said. “It’s a touchy subject and I would ask the residents to be more thoughtful. The last thing we want to do is chase people down by their license numbers.” Caputo said she also would like to get rid of the dumpsters, because the township has to spend time and money cleaning up after people who use them to get rid of garbage, but the center does serve a purpose. “Did you know that the sheriff’s department has a fulltime deputy who spends his time running them down and prosecuting them?” Joyce asked. Parkview Drive resident Albino Fisco said he has lived on the corner of Parkview and Seminary Lane since 1967, close to the old Chester School, and he and his wife witnessed people dumping mattresses, couches, and trash at the recycling center when it was located there.

“You’d see garbage all over the place,” Fisco said. He told trustees he and his wife were worried that trustees might move the center back to the school site. “My wife is not happy at all,” he said. “People pull in Seminary Lane and use the dumpsters at Drug Mart; I have called the police on them,” Fisco said, adding he knows of people depositing garbage in dumpsters outside office buildings. He said many of those businesses have installed locks on their dumpsters to prevent the practice. “Another option would be pushing it closer to the police station,” Radtke said. He added that the township used to have curbside recycling. “Unfortunately, that program went away,” said Radtke. Fisco asked trustees when a decision would be made. Caputo said she would call him the next time the issue is on the agenda.

Changing the world never looked so good! West Geauga High School Interact Club is making a difference, not only in the community but around the world. The Interact Club performs community service and raises funds for various international projects. Recently the Interact Club has adopted the YUDA bands project. This project allows West Geauga High School students to sell handmade leather bracelets where the funds raised will help educate youth in Guatemala, Zambia and Kenya.

Once the 2 week sale is over the money will be given to a YUDA band project manager so the children helped are able to achieve the education they deserve.
