Cash Balance Positive, Expenses Down at West G By Josh Echt West Geauga Schools ended fiscal year 20 13 with lowerthan-anticipated expenses, school board members Ben Kotowski and Sally Gillmore said. At Monday’s school board meeting, Treasurer Michele Tullai told board members the school’s expenses were lower than expected and the district is maintaining a positive cash balance, Kotowski said. “We are still in the black and this continues our ability to push back the need for a levy a few years,” he said. “The more carryover we have, the better. That way, when anticipated expenses kick in, we’ll have help when those expenses come up. “That’s how life is,” Kotowski said. “But both Michele and (Superintendent) Geoff (Palmer) have done a good job.” Tullai said Tuesday the FY 2013 ending balance was about $170,000 better than expected.
Expenses in every category in the FY 2013 spreadsheet were less than they were in FY 2012. Some of the causes for the lower expenses included the planned reductions of staff, which took place over the past three years. “This translates into less salaries and benefits,” Tullai said, adding lower enrollment each year in the district is also a factor. Kotowski said teachers have gone two years without any kind of raises. The board member said some expenses might go up next year at the end of fiscal year 2014, however. “As expenses rise, we won’t go back to voters right away for a few years. Hanging onto that (positive cash balance) is not easy,” he added. Kotowski said many interests vie for a chunk of the budget pie, such as foreign language programs, teacher raises, technology and even AstroTurf football fields. “I’d like to see more foreign
Excavation For Munson Town Hall Addition on Schedule By Ann Wishart Most of the excavation for the addition to the Munson Town Hall is completed and the foundation is underway — on time and within budget, said architect Hank Penttila last Tuesday. “Despite the monsoon season … Enzoco Homes have moved along,” he told trustees. The only major problem was unearthed when the asphalt next to the town hall was excavated. “They uncovered an area of the parking lot that had been laid over deep top soil,” Penttila said.
“It’s quite a feat to be this far along and still on budget.” – Enzo Perfetto It was possible the area had been landscaped at one time, then paved over, leaving about a foot of soil underneath, he said. General Contractor Enzo Perfetto of Enzoco Homes said the excavation phase usually includes the biggest unknown
language classes and have foreign language pushed downward into lower grade levels,” Kotowski said. “Others feel we should put that money into technology, for instance. What’s amazing is we’ve been able to hang onto that positive cash balance.” Gillmore said the positive news was a result of belt-tightening and personnel cuts made
two years ago. The results show up not via smaller salaries, but via fewer salaries. “If five people work for you and three are gone, you notice in the salary column it’s gone down because there are two people you aren’t paying anymore,” Gillmore said. “By the same token benefits and other things follow along with that.” With fewer teachers, fewer
classrooms and supplies are needed. “It should be anticipated as you cut and tighten your belt that you’re going to see those changes,” she added. “I was expecting them. I’m pleased they happened.” In other news, board members recognized longtime educators Bill Prueter, John Wilson and Linda Weiner with clocks as retirement gifts. Prueter and Wilson respectively taught Latin and math for 30 and 31 years. Weiner served as the middle school’s librarian for over 30 years, Gillmore said. Gillmore, an adjunct professor at the Kent State School of Library & Information Science for 23 years, said she even had Weiner as a student years ago. Due to recent budget cuts, Weiner had evolved into the district’s only librarian by the time of her retirement, often serving at various schools in the district in addition to the middle school, Gillmore added.
Chester Trustees Table Issues Due to Lack of Full Board By Diane Ryder
factors on any project. Munson’s Phase I, the excavation, has only faced the topsoil issue, so far, he said. “It’s quite a feat to be this far along and still on budget,” Perfetto said, adding the Phase I budget was $106,000. When the retention pond at the corner of Sherman and Auburn roads was dug, the water table was higher than expected, but the contractor was willing to work with the township to solve the problem. “That’s the benefit of local contractors,” Perfetto said. Rather than digging deeper, the contractor made the pond wider and shallower, he said.

The animosity between Chester Township Trustees Mike Joyce and Ken Radtke appeared to escalate last Thursday when Radtke moved to table two items of new business, including a road levy renewal, and accused Joyce of what he called “inconsistencies” in pushing through some resolutions in his absence but wanting to shut down other discussions until Trustee Judy Caputo could be there. Caputo was on vacation and did not attend the meeting. “On June 26 I wasn’t here, and I sent you an email asking you not to approve the minutes of the May 30, June 6 and June 13 meetings until I could be there, but you and Trustee Caputo approved them anyway,” Radtke said. “You extended a previous courtesy to Trustee Caputo, and thought it curious that you did not do so to me; this is inconsistent. The minutes should be approved when the full board is present.” Joyce said the minutes had been approved in Radtke’s absence because he and Caputo did not want to delay them and cause a backup of unapproved minutes, a problem that trustees
have had in the past. Radtke also asked to delay votes on a $153,000 construction contract for the Marilyn Drive project and a resolution to declare a need for a 1.5-mill road levy renewal, two of the three items of new business on the meeting’s agenda. Radtke said the Marilyn Drive project still needed all easements to be in order before approving the contract. Joyce said that one homeowner had not yet signed his easement agreement. When Joyce mentioned the remaining two items on the
agenda — the 1.5 mill road levy renewal and a .8 mill fire renewal levy -- Radtke said, “I want to put a hold on that one as well.” Radtke said that he did not believe there had been enough discussion on the road renewal during the previous week’s budget hearing. “I’d like to hold back on that; there's still plenty of time before the Board of Elections (filing deadline),” he added. Joyce told him the township has three weeks before the August 6 deadline. “We can go into it now if

Town Hall from page 1 â€œWeâ€™re in real good shape. The weather really hasnâ€™t been in our favor,â€? Perfetto said. â€œIn my world, weâ€™re ahead of schedule.â€? The top soil has to come off along with the branches and pieces of wood still in place. Penttila said if the wood is buried under asphalt, it will eventually rot, leaving voids and causing potholes as the surface collapses into them. Perfetto said the material will be removed and replaced
Table Issues from page 1 youâ€™d care to,â€? Radtke told him, but Joyce said he did not want to do anything without the full board present. Radtke said that during previous budget discussions it appeared that the road department would need more money, and he would like to see a public discussion about it before making any formal decisions. He said he had prepared a spreadsheet pointing out his concerns about the road department funding over the next five years, and offered copies to anyone in the audience. â€œThese are renewals, and I think they would be adequate,â€? Joyce responded. â€œYou didnâ€™t answer my question. There will be no second?â€? Radtke said he would not second the motion, using the same argument as Joyce that there should be a full board.
with stone, at a cost of $7,000, or crushed asphalt for about $4,000. Township Road Superintendent Jim Teichman has enough crushed asphalt for the purpose, he said. If the crushed asphalt is layered and properly compacted, Penttila said he is confident the excavator will be satisfied. Teichman said he is going along with the idea because he will get the top soil to help finish the back of the cemetery. He said his crew will load and deliver the top soil to the cemetery if the contractor will level it out with a bulldozer.
The change order for $4,150 for removing the soil and replacing with crushed asphalt was approved. With the foundation in place and the block walls in place, the project is progressing, although Tuesday rain was holding up the work, he said. â€œOther than the parking lot issue, weâ€™re in real good shape,â€? Perfetto said. At the beginning of the meeting, Trustee Andy Bushman called for a moment of silence for township park board member Bob Marn who drowned July 5 at Hilton Head, S.C., during a rip tide.
â€œSo we table both of them?â€? Joyce asked, referring to the two levy renewal issues on the agenda. Radtke told him to go ahead with a fire department issue, which both voted for. During the public comment portion of the meeting, former Trustee Ron Cotman questioned whether the road department budget for 2014 would be adequate, and cited what he said would be a half million dollar shortfall. â€œI request that Trustee Radtke be allowed to present what he has prepared for the meeting,â€? Cotman said. â€œItâ€™s appropriate for him to make his comments on the record.â€? Joyce told him it was only possible for Radtke to do so when the full board was present. Radtke said he would make his presentation after the meeting for anyone who cared to stay and listen. Resident Kurt Feigle said to Joyce, â€œLast week you voted on
something without the full board. You wonâ€™t do anything unless Judy is here.â€? â€œThatâ€™s not true,â€? Joyce shot back. Resident Dal Lanese said she disagreed with Joyce. After several other public questions and comments, the 45-minute meeting adjourned. Six residents stayed to hear Radtkeâ€™s report, which he projected on a screen. The trustee said he believed that the road department would be out of money by 2016 if it did no road resurfacing in 2014 and 2015. He said he was not counting any State of Ohio Issue 2 funding in his figures, but was counting the levy renewal. Radtke said he would like to discuss the issue further with the other two trustees once there is a full board, and that his figures are preliminary. â€œItâ€™s a topic of discussion Iâ€™d like to have; itâ€™s unsustainable over five years for the general fund to support the road department,â€? Radtke said.

THE ART GALLERY 4099 ERIE STREET in Historic Downtown
July 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce will again host about 10,0 0 0 visitors for the 22nd annual downtown Willoughby ArtsFest. Held rain or shine. Police protection, traffic control and medical aid available, if needed. “The ArtsFest is a great event where we have people that are able to come out and see the various artists and specialty food vendors that are going to be there; but also the restaurants and merchants that are there in downtown Willoughby every day,” said Byron Crane, ArtsFest Committee chair and chamber board member. “It’s a great showcase. It’s a great opportunity for people to see a wide
range of art and also local merchants.” There will be approximately 150 artists participating, some locally and nationally recognized artists. Various mediums including sculpture, metals, jewelry, painting, fiber, photography, wood, glass, ceramics and graphic arts presented. The show is juried, which ensures quality artwork. Artists must submit photos of actual artwork, the artistic process used to create pieces and how their booth will be set up. The art pieces are judged by a committee which selects Best of Show, second place and third place prizes. There will be a Silent Auction Tent in Point Park where ArtsFest visitors can bid on items donated by the artist and some local businesses. Some of the auction proceeds will benefit the chamber’s Education and Development Program which helps member businesses send employees to continuing education or training classes. Call 440-942-1632 for more information.

Longtime Chester Township resident Doris Marie Goncher passed away July 9, 20 13 at age 85. “ D o d i e,” as she was fondly known by family and friends, was born at City Hospital in Lancaster, Ohio, on May 3, 1928, daughter of Carol Jacob Hartman and Bertha Wilamina Rinker. She graduated from The Ohio State University, where she majored in physical education and art; her instructors included the renowned modern artist Roy Lichtenstein. Ohio State was also where Dodie met the love of her life, James Goncher. Dodie and Jim married on Aug. 19, 1950 in Lancaster. Before starting a family, Dodie worked as an art teacher, as she and Jim began plans to build their own home, designed by Jim, a skilled architect. Other than hiring a crew to pour the foundation, Dodie and Jim did all the work together to build their family home on Hillcrest Road in Chester Township, an extensive project that took two years to complete. In this hand-built home, they raised their four sons. Along with caring for her family, Dodie also periodically worked as a substitute teacher in the public school system throughout the region, and she also taught swimming. Throughout her life, Dodie loved the creative arts, including
painting and working with textiles; an accomplished weaver, she would often spin and dye her own yarn for numerous colorful art pieces. In addition, she greatly enjoyed visiting flower gardens and museums, including the Cleveland Art Museum and she was also active in many local arts and textile groups throughout the years. Dodie delighted in opera, dance and classical music, playing both the piano and the violin. Gardening was another of her many passions, along with children’s literature and gourmet cooking, thanks, in part, to one of her favorite public television shows, Julia Child’s “The French Chef.” Known and appreciated for her warm smile and great sense of humor, Dodie lived a life filled with art, color, nature and love for her family and friends. Dodie also loved to travel. For many years, she and Jim enjoyed annual spring trips to Europe as well as numerous trips with their four sons to national parks and art museums throughout the country. Wherever they went, Dodie and Jim did things together; when dining out, they would often agree on one entrée, which they would then share — and delight in the sharing. In 2010, Dodie and Jim celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at one of their favorite spots, Geauga County’s Punderson State Park Lodge, at a joyful party surrounded by many loved ones; their favorite song was “When Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” and, indeed, on that
night — or any night — they were happiest when they could sit together holding hands, smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes. In her final months, Dodie continued to enjoy being at home, quietly listening to classical music, with husband Jim always close by. One of her long-standing wishes was to remain in the home that she and Jim built together more than half a century ago. For making it possible to honor Dodie’s wishes, her sons now thank the loving, dedicated home care givers, including Denise Silbaugh Keri Martin, Paris Price, Betty Detweiler, Rachel Jackson and Elsie Mohr for their steadfast support, many kindnesses and constant good care. Doris M. Goncher is survived by James, her husband of nearly 63 years, her sons, Gary, of Beaverton, Oregon; Brian, of Palo Alto, California; Dale, of Brooklyn Heights, New York; and Kurt, of Alpine, Utah; as well as her sister Myra Sarafin, of Mansfield and her brother Robert Hartman, of Pittsburg, California; four grandchildren: Ellen, Hannah, Natalie and William Goncher. Memorial services are pending. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation be given to St. Mark Lutheran Church, 1190 0 Chillicothe Road, Chesterland, Ohio 44026, Attn. Doris Goncher Memorial Library Fund.
