Chester Twp. Resident Wins Awards at Daylily Show By Josh Echt A walk through Ethel Wilcox’s Chester Township daylily garden reveals interesting names of her favorite multi-colored flowers. Stop Your Sobbing. John Coltrane. Wedding Band. Rocket City, presumably named for the flowers’ bright orange hues. But the name of her recent fame is that of three awards Wilcox won at a local daylily show at the Cleveland Botanical Garden July 21. The Northeast Ohio Daylily Society holds the annual show. At that show, Wilcox won the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) Section Rosette for the Most Outstanding Registered Small Daylily Flower award. That flower, “Dragons Eye,” is located in an Oriental-themed section of her garden on Parker Drive. It received both a blue and a purple ribbon. She also won the society’s Sweepstakes Rosette, awarded to the exhibitor winning the most blue ribbons at the show. Finally, she won the People’s Choice Award. Visitors to the


Chester Township resident Ethel Wilcox recently won three awards at the annual Daylily Show at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens.

show were asked to vote, via ballot, on the daylily they cherished the most. Wilcox’s “Something Else” won her that award. “The judges for this show were from out of the area,” she said, adding they were all AHS members. “These daylilies are judged based on color, form, texture, substance and other categories,” Wilcox said.

Wilcox and her husband, Bob, moved to Chester Township in 1964, from out of state. At the time, their property was all wooded before they built a house. She taught business and Spanish in various local school districts, including then-Northview Elementary – now Robert C. Lindsey Elementary – in the township.

In her free time, she and her husband worked to create and cultivate their daylily gardens. Most recently, the pair would exhibit daylilies at the Kingwood Center in Mansfield during the Ohio Daylily Society Shows. The Kingwood Center, founded in 1952, is a cultural and educational center with an emphasis on ornamental horticulture and gardening. It opened as a public

garden in 1953, according to the center’s website. Today, her garden currently is an official AHS Display Garden. Each daylily is marked with both its registered name and its hybridizer. Hybridizers are those who breed daylilies, according to the encyclopedia website.

Russell Trustees Ask WRLC to Russell Twp. Officials Allow Equine Patrol of Preserve Give Funding Outlook By Ann Wishart

By Ann Wishart

Unable to find a better solution, Russell Township Trustees voted last Monday to propose — via letter to the Western Reserve Land Conservancy — an equine courtesy patrol to spot trespassers in the township’s Upper Chagrin Preserve. The 151-acre woodland was given to the township by Lucia Nash in 1999, said Township Trustee Jim Dickinson. A previous board of trustees placed the parcel in a conservation easement with severe restrictions as to how the property can be used, he said at a July 3 meeting. However, there have been reports of people trespassing on the acreage, including setting up deer stands for hunting, driving ATVs along trails and through waterways and cutting firewood, Dickinson said last Monday. Not only does the township not have enough police officers to patrol the preserve, they don’t have easy access to the trails for that purpose, he said.

About 35 Russell Township residents were very quiet last Wednesday when Fiscal Officer Chuck Walder explained the township’s problems and what officials propose to solve them. “Significant outside factors have changed Russell Township’s funding,” he said. “Without your support, our solutions will not work.” Unless there are changes in the township’s organization and the passage of three levies in November, the township could be in the red by 2015, the fiscal officer explained “We will consume the bulk of our carryover balance in the general and police funds by December 2014. By January 2015, there would not be enough carryover cash for the first quarter of 2015 expenses,” Walder said. He displayed a number of charts and figures showing the general fund will be depleted by the end of 2014 due mainly to the state’s elimination of the estate tax and Gov. John Kasich’s



At the July 3 meeting, four members of the Ohio Horsemen’s Council Geauga chapter proposed the idea of an equine patrol to serve as “eyes and ears” on the preserve. Members would combine old-fashioned horse riding with cell phone cameras to spot and take pictures of any trespassers in the preserve, they said. Last Monday, Dickinson said he had drafted a letter to John Leech, chairman of the WRLC board of trustees, and he asked trustees Justin Madden and Jim Mueller to approve sending it. “It’s a good idea to have someone in there,” Mueller said,


“We need to police the area. This is the best solution I can see.” – Justin Madden emphasizing the patrol is not to interfere with any illegal activities in the preserve. “They are not to be telling people what to do,” he said, adding they’re just getting pictures and leaving, then giving

budget, which decimates the intergovernmental funds. They have shrunk from more than $100,000 in 2008 to about $15,000 in 2013, according to Walder’s chart, which showed revenue from these funds has averaged $622,000 per year. This year, the figure is just over $21,000. “We call this the Mueller chart,” Walder said, crediting the township trustee. “Jim made copies and said, ‘This is what you need to think about.’” Overall, the township will be receiving about $583,000 less in 2014 than they did in 2008. “The general fund would run a deficit of $583,000 per year,” Walder said. “That converts to 2.31 mills in today’s market.” Trustees took a holistic look at the township’s finances, not excluding the 3 mills of “inside” millage the township receives that the state levies without the vote of the people. The income from those 3 mills goes to the township to

Her daylilies are grown in island beds that contain other lawn trees and perennials. “That way, when the daylilies aren’t blooming, other plants fill the garden in. That’s why daylilies are known as daylilies. They only last a day,� Wilcox said. The yard has also logged several Lovin’ Care Yard Awards from the Perennial Garden Club of Chesterland. Some awards are featured on plaques mounted next to her front door, while others are inside the house. She said she’s still a member of the AHS, the Northeast Ohio Daylily Society and the Ohio Daylily Society today. “I just enjoy this as a hobby,� she added.

the information to the police for enforcement purposes. Besides using the cell phones to take pictures or video and record verbal details, phones can also be used to pinpoint the activity through the global positioning system. “We need to police the area. This is the best solution I can see,� said Madden, who had voiced concerns about safety and liability at the earlier meeting. Having ridden horses for a few years, he said he knows horses can be unreliable and may not react well if faced with an ATV roaring at them from the brush. However, he said last Monday, if the OHC patrol signs waivers relieving the township of liability, he will be satisfied. Dickinson, who rides with the Chagrin Valley Hunt, said there is a state law that any adult riding a horse is responsible for his or her own welfare, which relieves property owners of liability.

Funding from page 1 operate their business, Walder said. Historically, the township has allotted 2.1 mills of the inside millage to the road department, which also receives revenue from levies, the chart shows. The police department has been subsidized by the general fund, as have maintenance, zoning and the cemeteries, while the fire department depends on voted levy revenue and monies that come in from their emergency medical services. In case of a catastrophe, the general fund with the estate tax boost, served as the bank, Walder said. “The carryovers are just plummeting,â€? he said, adding the township needs $1 million or more to stay out of the red and moving the problem from department to department is not an option. “Each department must move towards fiscal self-sufficiency. The general fund bank has closed,â€? he said. Walder and trustees are undertaking six initiatives to change the townships’ fiscal landscape: • Merge the maintenance and road departments; • Pursue intelligent regionalization opportunities; • Consider selling or repurposing township-owned properties; • Enact procedural checks and opportunities; • Move toward departments standing on their own, fiscally, and; • Reduce operational costs such as gas, electric, phones, cleaning, etc. With that in mind, they have cut 12 phone lines, eliminated cleaning services and reduced trash pickup. Elected officials voluntarily reduced their pay by 10 percent and will pay for their own meals at the Geauga

Township Association quarterly meetings. They have suspended employee pay raises except those under contract and increased the amount employees pay for health insurance from 10 percent to 15 percent. Officials are also looking at longevity pay whereby employees get automatic raises at given periods in their employment. The road department has been receiving 2.1 mills of the 3 inside mills, so the officials are reallocating that $277,310 to the general fund and placing a replacement road and bridge levy of 1.1 mills on the November ballot, Walder said. “This road and bridge levy is not additional revenue for the road department, it is merely replacing funds (that are going) to the general fund,� he told the audience. Trustees have also agreed to place a 0.25-mill cemetery levy on the ballot, which, if passed, will cover most of the cemetery operating expenses, Walder said. The five-year levy will generate about $60,000 per year and the cemeteries take about $88,000 per year. “It takes a big chunk out of that $88,000. We anticipate making up the balance with increased fees and cost reductions,� Walder said. A 1975 police levy will be replaced with a 1.5-mill continuing levy to provide Russell police with enough revenue to be selfsustaining, he said. The eight-officer police department is dependent on the general fund for about $160,000, Walder said, adding if passed, the levy would make it possible to replace the full-time and parttime officers who have taken jobs elsewhere.

Residents who own property abutting the preserve would be informed of the patrol’s activation and asked to contact a rider if they see illegal activity, OHC members said. The only dissenting voice last Monday belonged to trustees’ secretary Melissa Palmer. She objected to allowing horses on the trails, but not walkers. “Anybody else is (guilty of) criminal trespass,� she said. Madden asked why there are trails through the preserve if hikers don’t have access to them. Since the acreage is in the conservancy, the only pedestrians allowed in the preserve may be there for educational purpoes only, Dickinson said. The township’s role is clear. “We’re there to protect the natural order,� he said. Mueller asked if the trustees could resolve to allow pedestrians in the preserve and Dickinson said it would be up to the WRLC. “I’d like to look into the language of the easement,� Madden said. The fire department does not require funds from the general fund, but with the advent of the Affordable Healthcare for America Act, that could change, he said. However, the fire department is not part of the reorganization plan, yet, Walder said. The road and bridge continuing 1.1-mill levy would cost a homeowner $37.90 annually per $100,000 property valuation. The five-year, 0.25-mill cemetery levy would cost the same homeowner $8.61 per year and the 1.5-mill continuing replacement levy for the police department would cost a homeowner about $38.48 per year, Walder said.

For the month of August, JADE Gallery welcomes local paper artist Kerry Remp, who will be teaching a three-class series on origami. From 1-4 p.m. Aug. 3, the gallery will be opening for a solo exhibition featuring Kerry’s origami artwork. Remp’s origami classes will take place on the three consecutive Saturdays following his solo exhibition (Aug. 10, 17 and 24). Remp began his journey exploring origami back in 2007, when he picked up a book from the library to keep himself entertained during down time on a business trip. In a matter of six years, his journey took him from a beginner’s curiosity to a skilled fine art. “When it dawned on me that I could actually build things with paper, I was hooked,” he says. Over the years, this idea has led Remp to create a multitude of innovative origami pieces embodying a level of creativity

at Leroy Elementary School to assist the educators with a unique learning experience for the fifth grade students. Driven by his “constant pursuit of new ways to create things and make the world a better place,” Remp’s origami artwork is truly inspirational. Students of all ages and skill levels are sure to benefit from learning this age-old art by such a passionate and skilled individual. Remp said the benefits of origami are many. “It’s therapeutic since it promotes a feeling of well-being and accomplishment, provides a positive social interaction and can be used as a team-building tool for groups,” he said. “Recent studies have shown that it is a wonderful activity for all ages since it develops handeye coordination and enhances brain usage and development.” Remp added, “On a personal level, it has helped me reduce the effects of stress in my life. It’s a flexible and convenient opportunity for learning.” Email Kerry,, for more details.

far beyond that of the typical flower or crane. One example is Remp’s unique origami patchwork quilt, which students will learn to create themselves. “Every time I teach, I hope to not only pass on my knowledge of how to make something, but also to share the joy and spirit of adventure that creating an original work of art can produce,” he said. “This upcoming series will be focused on one of my origami quilt designs — the Patchwork Quilt.” He added, “Resembling quilts from both long ago as well as modern day, these pieces often bring wonderful memories with them for both the person creating them as well as those who may view the completed projects. If I can instill this sense of joy and satisfaction in the participants, the session will have been a success.” Within the past few months, Remp has participated as a RAW Artist at the EXPRESSIONS show in Lakewood, taught classes through the Lake Metropark system, at Breckenridge Senior Living Center and

The difference between a good paint job and one that is so-so is all in the amount of preparation. The work put into it before painting makes all the difference. For instance, if planning to stain the deck and it is not washed and cleaned first, odds are it will not look good and not last. Any dirt on the surface can cause the coating to not adhere. Peeling paint is never welcome. If a deck cleaner is used first and the deck is allowed to dry, better results will be achieved. Many decks have multiple coatings on them. Throughout the years, these can build up. In this case, it would be wise to use a stripper to remove all the finish and start fresh. Turney’s offers many products to get the job done right. The same advice holds true when it comes to painting outside.

Washing the house down before painting promotes better adhesion. Be sure that the surface is thoroughly dry; else the moisture will cause the paint to peel. Painting over wood that is damp traps the water underneath the coating and it needs to go somewhere. Usually, the paint gives way because of it. Painting over dirt and moisture are two of the most common paint failures outdoors. If prepped right, the house and deck will look good for a long time. Stop in to Turney’s paint department, 12670 West Geauga Plaza or call 440729-2130.

Arizona Tea or Lemonade Nine-year-old Wayne Randall Jr., of Chester Township, had the opportunity to throw the first pitch at the Lake County Captains Game last week as part of The Metzenbaum Center Special Olympics. After throwing the pitch, Wayne was given the ball by the Captains catcher.

Chester Township: Aug. 7, 7 p.m., Zoning Commission; Aug. 8, 7 p.m., Board of Trustees. All meetings are held at the Township Hall, 12701 Chillicothe Road, unless otherwise noted.

On July 20, The Metzenbaum Center Special Olympics attended the Lake County Captains baseball game. It is the 12th year the Geauga County Board of Developmental Disabilities has organized this event. Over 130 individuals and families attended. Jen Gerber was selected to sing the National Anthem before the game. Long after Jen was done singing and back in her seat, she kept receiving compliments. People all evening long were congratulating her and com-

menting on what a great job she did. Jen went to open auditions in February at Great Lakes Mall. She was picked to sing and the Captains chose the Special Olympics game for her to perform at. The Metzenbaum Center was also given the honor of throwing out the first pitch. Nine-year-old Wayne Randall, Jr, representing the Special Olympics, threw the pitch. Wayne’s father died suddenly earlier this year, so this was something positive for him to focus on. He got to keep the ball and a Captains player handed it to him personally.

As a member of the Chester Township Fire Department from 1980-2006, I often witnessed the devotion and courage of the fire and medical personnel when they received a call for help. These firefighters and paramedics work part time for this community and often must go to a different full-time or part-time job the next day or may have just come home from one of those jobs to work here. Some voluntarily leave their homes to respond and assist when needed. At 2 a.m., it’s no different. A few weeks ago, I awoke to a horrendous popping and cracking sound and discovered a neighbor’s house engulfed in flames.

Luckily, the house had been abandoned for more than a year, but none the less, had to be searched by firefighters. I waited by the street for the first engine to arrive, which only took a few minutes. Once again, I witnessed that devotion and courage as they entered the building, searched and brought the fire under control under the command of Chief Wargelin, who also responded to the early morning fire. I would like to thank all of the firefighters, but especially lieutenants Nagy and Osborne, firefighters Mathews and Kerr, and EMT Sanders for once again displaying their dedication and efforts for our community.
