Former Clerk Accuses Chester Officials of Financial Bungling By Diane Ryder Near the end of a four and a half hour Chester Township Trustees meeting Thursday, in front of a standing-room-only crowd, former Fiscal Officer Karen Austin accused township officials of mishandling the township’s finances over the past year since she left office. Austin read her remarks from a letter she said she planned to distribute to the news media and other public officials. The discussion quickly degenerated into a lengthy shouting match between Austin and Trustee Judy Caputo, who became visibly shaken when Austin asked why trustees had recently brought in Local Government Services, a branch of the Ohio Auditor of State’s Office, to examine the township’s books during the past year. “Who’s exactly watching over our finances?” Austin asked

trustees. “Are we going back and repeating history?” Austin was apparently comparing the current financial situation to the Michael Spellman scandal of almost 10 years ago, when the township’s previous fiscal officer was convicted of stealing more than $4 million in township funds. Spellman is currently in prison for his crimes, but some in the community remain wary of township officials’ financial dealings as a result. Austin accused trustees of denying her requests to see the findings of the local government audit, which trustees said is not yet completed. She said that she believed trustees had violated the Ohio Sunshine Law by not notifying the public 24 hours before special meetings.

Russell Service Depts. Merge Metzenbaum Renovation Starting Next Month By Ann Wishart Merging the maintenance and road departments to save money and reorganize the general fund took up part of the Russell Township Trustees special meeting last Tuesday. In an effort to deal with state funding cuts and elimination of the inheritance tax that would lead to a general fund deficit of $583,0 0 0 in 20 15, township officials have been making numerous changes. The combination of the maintenance department with the road department was at the top of the list developed over the last few months.

Maintenance Superintendent Jack Gallagher, who has been using the old fire station for equipment and materials storage, has announced his resignation as of Nov. 15, leading officials to set the merger date for Nov. 16. At that point, Gallagher’s assistant, Vince Gambino, will begin reporting to Road Superintendent Gene Layne, a move that will place his pay and benefits within the road department budget, Fiscal Officer Chuck Walder said last Thursday. Trustees agreed not to change the name of the merged

By Ann Wishart The pastoral campus of the Bessie Benner Metzenbaum Center is about to undergo some structural changes that should be good for the residents as well as the staff. When the four buildings that house the center’s developmentally disabled residents are remodeled in the next year or so, the number of individuals living on campus will decrease to 25, said Michelle Hawthorne, intermediate care facility manager. When the four buildings were first constructed, there were about 40 residents on the campus, she said.

“Each (unit) was designed to be a home with a house manager who cared for eight people,” Hawthorne said. It was a kind of foster arrangement with higher-functioning folks who were mobile and able to be involved in more activities, such as playing baseball, she said. Those now remaining at the center spend part of their days either at the school nearby where they can enjoy the pool or art and music, or at the sheltered workshop. Still, at the end of the day, crowded conditions prevail and cause friction.

West Geauga BOE Approves Fundraising For HS Field Turf By Gwen Cooper After a brief huddle, the West Geauga Field Turf Committee has passed the ball to seek donations for installing artificial turf at Howell Field at the high school. Following an introduction by school board member Michael Kilroy and a discussion between the committee and the board, the West Geauga Schools Board of Education voted Monday night to allow the group to solicit funds for the estimated $650,0 0 0 project designed to

accommodate football, soccer and lacrosse games. The school board members stipulated, however, the money be deposited into a school account and the turf committee provide a monthly status report. The group’s spokesman, Chester Township resident Tim Ritt, said the committee plans to begin selling commemorative bricks through the football team’s Gridiron Club to raise funds at the opening home football game against Chardon.

Intemediate Care Facility Manager Michelle Hawthorne, right, explains the downsizing program at Bessie Benner Metzenbaum Center in Chester Township to a family of a center resident last April. The center’s residential housing will be renovated beginning in September.

In the 1980’s, there were usually two people in a bedroom and the homes had community bathrooms, said Don Rice, superintendent of the county’s board of developmental disabilities.

Renovation Vital to Purpose Walking through the larger of the four units, their age is apparent. Worn purple carpets and lime-green bath tiles go back decades. Although proper upkeep of the building is evident, the chopped-up floor-plan is inefficient for supervision of the individuals now in residence and difficult for people with mobilty issues, Hawthorne said. “Today, most are mobility limited,” she said, with many in wheelchairs. They are also essentially non-verbal, so having two in a bedroom is awkward, Rice said. The close quarters are fine for mobile, speaking individuals, not so good otherwise. “Having another adult in your bedroom is not normal for adults,” Rice said, adding it can lead to behavioral problems. So the remodeling includes six bedrooms per unit, most of which will be suites with shared bathrooms.

Chester Officials from page 1 Austin said current Fiscal Officer Mike Stark, her successor, is at the center of the financial difficulties. Stark did not attend Thursday’s meeting. Austin said Stark had mistakenly listed the same $640,000 in two places in the 2014 budget that trustees recently passed and sent to the county budget commission for approval. “When the fiscal officer submitted the budget, $640,000 was listed as the beginning balance and listed a second time as estimated revenue,” Austin accused. “Nobody saw it till the budget commission had to tell you about it. Checks and balances are supposed to be in place, but currently it doesn’t seem to be working in Chester Township.” She said on Aug. 8, Stark told trustees he was decreasing the certificate of estimated resources. Trustee Judy Caputo said she had questioned the discrepancy and believed the only way to resolve it had been to decrease the appropriation to make the budget balance. Caputo told Austin Ohio law only requires local governments alert the media at least 24 hours before a special meeting and that email notification to individual residents is merely a courtesy and not required under the Sunshine law. She denied any wrongdoing. Austin said in March, trustees approved $126,000 in appropriations to the road department, but had only $16,0 0 0 available. “Why did you guys wait till Aug. 13 to finally correct it? That’s a heck of a lot of time,” Austin said. Caputo, visibly upset, said she had been dealing with some personal family issues at that time and said she was “about to lose it” about Austin’s comments.

Caputo

“I know I’m supposed to be a trustee 24/7, but I had personal issues at that time,” Caputo said. “Did I slide? Yes.” Trustee Mike Joyce interjected and said, “That’s enough; we’re moving on.” Resident and former Trustee Ron Cotman added, “Maybe the fiscal officer needs more training.” “I see a big red flag when Local Government Services has to come in and reconcile 15 months’ worth of bank statements,” his wife, Cathy Cotman, told trustees. Joyce said he would decline comment on that, adding the LGS had not completed its findings. “We will meet with LGS next week,” Caputo told her. Austin said any discussions with LGS had to be done during an open public meeting. Caputo said Austin’s earlier public records request concerning the LGS contract had mistakenly been rejected on the basis that it was attorney-client privilege. “I found out yesterday that it is not a confidential contract,” Caputo told Austin. Austin said trustees are not up to date with the finances. “We went through this before,” she said adding her phone messages to Stark go unanswered. Caputo said because Stark’s position is elected, he is not answerable to trustees, nor are trustees answerable to him.

Austin

Joyce

She acknowledged when Austin was fiscal officer, the township’s books were gone over line-by-line with trustees every month. “You don’t do that anymore,” Austin told her. Joyce asked the board to move on with the meeting. Cathy Cotman accused trustees of over-reporting the budget to bring it up to $10.6 million so trustees’ salary, by state law calculated on the basis of the budget, would be the highest allowed by law. “If it’s under $10 million, your salaries would be five or six thousand less,” she told trustees. She asked Joyce what the law requires for special meeting notification. He told her the law requires the news media be notified at least 24 hours before a meeting and the township had complied with the rule. “I think we did that plainly enough,” Joyce said. Trustees adjourned the meeting at 11:35 p.m.

Road Dept from page 1 department to “service department” but to leave it as the road department. The road department has been supported by the general fund in the past, but trustees are placing a 1.1-mill road and bridge levy on the November ballot. If it passes, the levy would provide the department with its own funds. Keeping its name as the road department avoids confusion, Walder said. Trustee Jim Dickinson said the old fire station could be cleaned out and trustees should consider what to do with it. Trustee Jim Mueller recommended a gradual shift. “I think Gene Layne needs a

“(The department) will morph as it goes along. Gene may find ways to streamline.” – Jim Mueller little bit of a free hand,” he said. Joining the departments and combining some of the responsibilities may take time to work out and Layne may want to organize the department a little differently, Mueller said. Trustee Justin Madden said the township may end up outsourcing some of the work done by the maintenance department in the past. “We want to let Gene do things as he sees fit,” Madden said, adding the trustees can provide guidance when needed. “(The department) will morph as it goes along. Gene may find ways to streamline (operations,)” Mueller said. Not replacing the maintenance supervisor will save the township about $100,000 per year, Walder said last Thursday.

General building maintenance will be the responsibility of the separate department heads and will come out of their budgets as well. Walder said the fire and police chief have been taking care of their own buildings for a while. Other levies on the ballot include a five-year, 0.25-mill cemetery levy and a 1.5-mill replacement continuous police levy. In other action, trustees accepted a date change for the retirement of Susan Baker, fiscal officer assistant, to allow at least 60 days between her retirement and her return as a part-time employee with the fire department. Walder said she will receive a retirement payout of about $12,0 0 0 and Gallagher will receive a $11,500 payout. Trustees also passed a resolution authorizing Walder to apply for a credit card with the bank that offers the best deal. Walder said the township will be reimbursed about $400 by making an early payment to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. The bureau recommends taking advantage of the 1 percent payback from the credit card, Walder said. The card is there specifically for the bureau payments, but there is also a 2 percent payback on office supplies, he said. Trustees also said the deteriorating, burned-out house on Hemlock Point Road owned by Annette Scott is now part of a bankruptcy filing.

Secretary Melissa Palmer said she asked the township’s legal counsel, Geauga County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Sheila Salem, if a township can go ahead with Russell trustees’ intent to have the deserted house demolished and was told probably not. Trustees recommended Palmer talk to a bankruptcy attorney to find out if a township qualifies as an entity that is exempt from bankruptcy protection and may tear down buildings that constitute a danger to the health and safety of the community.

donations, along with in-kind donations for excavating work. The group already has verbal commitments for about onethird of the funds through “wordof-mouth” discussions, he said. West Geauga is one of the last schools in the Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Divison that does not have a turf stadium, while Chagrin Falls, Kenston and Orange school districts have them. “It’s becoming a necessity,” Ritt said. The cost includes about $350,000 for the turf carpeting and $100,000 in sand, stone and other materials. The remaining $200,000 is an estimate for labor. The committee is considering a supplier named FieldTurf. The estimate is on the high side, Ritt said. If more funds are raised than are needed, the surplus could be used to resurface the track and add other components, such as a cork layer that would help keep the field cooler in hot weather.

If the group is successful, work could begin on the field in June 2014 and be completed in time for the 2014 fall sports season. Construction is estimated to take 30 days, Ritt said. Superintendent Geoff Palmer praised the group for being business-oriented. “They have an excellent plan in place and I am confident they will succeed,” he added. Another committee member, Joe Mazzurco, attended the Aug. 19 meeting. “I’m a West G graduate and a football coach,” he said. “I really want to see this happen for our students.” Ritt said he has three children in the West Geauga school district. “I have two daughters who are in gymnastics,” he said. “They’ll never use the field, but my son, who is in second grade, might. I just believe in the project and want to help.” Ritt also named Bill Patterson as another key committee member. Patterson was not at the meeting.

A large, wooden table fills a meeting room at Arabica Coffee House in Chester Township. A vertical neon “ICE CREAM” sign stands in a corner, next to a potted plant. Around the table, local business owners are planning the upcoming Chesterland Apple Festival, which will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 7 at West Geauga Plaza. And they’re hoping the festival will be as enjoyable as the Arabica roast brewing in a nearby machine. The business owners — West Geauga Plaza manager Tom Basista, Chesterland Floral’s Kathy Kavulis and Arabica’s Kathy Fadorsen — discussed final preparations for the festival at a Monday morning meeting.

The festival will feature music, a car-cruise in, inflatable play areas, an arts and crafts show and, of course, food. Bands such as Sweta Datta, a pop act just returning from Nashville, and classic rock vocalist Cora Pollard will kick off the show at noon. Bluegrass from Raccoon County, as well as classic rock from Red Letter and Baked Alaska will fill the afternoon. Jennifer Dessofy and the Renegades’ vocal ensemble will entertain between the rock music. Mr. Excavator of Kirtland will provide a flatbed truck that will double as a band stage, Basista said. A car cruise-in will run from 2:30-6 p.m. in the main parking lot behind the plaza’s east wing, while inflatables like a castle bounce house and fire engine slide will dot the main area of the plaza from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eddy’s Fruit Farm will provide an arts and crafts tent for children, while Mulberry Corners will host pumpkin-related activities.

Kavulis will coordinate a pie-baking contest, which will take place next to Chesterland Floral in the plaza. And, in tribute to the festival’s namesake, there will be food, especially apple-themed dishes. LaPuma Bakery will sell wares. Other vendors, such as Our Town Café, will sell traditional American classics like hot dogs, hamburgers and French fries. Also, Callam’s Restaurant will hold a pig roast, Basista said, adding “it sounds delicious.” “I’m even going to try my hand at making apple dumplings,” Fadorsen said. Eddy’s Fruit Farm will sell apples and other items.

Festival An Idea From Out West Fadorsen said she came up with the idea of an apple festival after visiting Elyria’s Apple Festival a few years ago.

Metz Center from page 1 The full kitchens in each building will be converted to warming kitchens with the food for all prepared in the larger building. The kitchen cabinets that block the supervisor’s view of the main room and the dining room will be converted to storage cabinets in other locations, leaving the entire living area open to supervision. “Someone standing here will be able to monitor everything going on,” said Rice, standing in the warming kitchen of the larger home.

Center Population Decreased That building, the first scheduled for renovation beginning as early as September, is empty. The population of campus residents has been gradually decreased as Metzenbaum follows the state’s mandate that many disabled adults be moved to community homes. These homes, spread around the county, usually have four residents each and 24/7 supervision. Most of those individuals are able to communicate verbally and have been pleased to move from the crowded quarters at the center, Rice said. Having their own bedrooms makes the transition fairly easy for the residents.

“More space means less behavior (problems). That’s a good thing.” - Michelle Hawthorne Overall, the 21 facilities managed by Maple Leaf Homes are home for about 80 residents, he said.

Live and silent auctions and surprise fun games available. Tickets for the adult dinner and entertainment are $40 per person. Visit www.eddyfruitfarm.com for tickets or for more information.

At least one of the refrigerators, currently located in the basement of the larger unit, is avocado green, Hawthorne said. The central home has more area because there were living quarters added on some years back. That part will be converted into the main kitchen and meals will be taken to the other three homes on campus, she said. Each home also has a front porch that will be enclosed to give the units more area to maneuver six wheelchairs for meals and daily living, Hawthorne said.

“More space means less behavior (problems),” she said. “That’s a good thing.” Since the Geauga County Commissioners approved Gottschalk Building Company as the contractor for the entire $1.5 million project last week, work could begin in early September and be done by the end of 2014, Rice said. As each home is completed, residents will be transferred out of the next home on the list to the refurbished one. The entire cost will be reimbursed through Medicaid over time by depreciation, Rice said.

“Those who are staying here chose to stay here.” - Don Rice The downsizing was announced on April 12 and families were informed the center would be moving some residents to community homes, Rice said. Those who moved did so voluntarily, he said, adding, “Those who are staying here chose to stay here.

The Great Geauga County Fair Aug. 29 - Sept. 2 www.geaugafair.com Apple Festival from page 6 That festival, which began during a meeting between Elyria-area bankers and business owners in 1980, now attracts over 100,000 visitors annually during three days in late September, according to the Elyria Festival website. “I just thought it was interesting,” Fadorsen said, adding she presented the idea to a local restaurant owner. Over time, a planning team came together and concrete

preparations began in earnest sometime in the last year. “It’s nice to see most of the plaza’s owners are involved,” she said. The group will promote the apple festival on a local AM radio, polka-themed channel, Fadorsen added. The business owners said having local companies and supporters host an apple festival was a natural progression from other community-based festivals. Willoughby Hills hosts the Corn Festival in August, while Kirtland has the Strawberry

Festival in June and Huntsburg hosts a Pumpkin Festival in October. “We have St. Anselm’s Church Festival in May,” Basista said, adding that event has been “around for decades.” But he said Chester Township needed to create an event that would speak to the town’s agricultural heritage. “There are so many apple orchards around here,” he added.

‘We Have To Be Involved’ Kavulis said the township is working to create a sense of

community with events such as the apple festival and ChesterFest, a community picnic held this past Saturday at Parkside Park. The apple festival planning committee will have a booth at ChesterFest, she said. ChesterFest, formerly the Chesterland Community Picnic, held its inaugural event in 2011 at Orchard Hills Park, but moved to the center of town this year. “Community members, especially our youth, need to be proud of their town’s heritage,” Basista said. Fadorsen said the township’s small businesses are a vital cog in its existence, while Basista said money spent at small businesses in Chester goes back to the community.

“We couldn’t do something like this without the support of them,” Fadorsen said. “We have to be involved. We have to do something to get our names out there. This is one of those opportunities to do so.” She added, “The more people see us, the more they know us and the more they will know the community around them.”

“Community members, especially our youth, need to be proud of their town’s heritage.” - Tom Basista

Although I am nearly a lifelong Chester Township resident, I have lived in my residence on Sherman Road for only a few short years. State Route 306 and Sherman Road is a high traveled intersection and anyone driving on Sherman across 306, let alone walking, is taking their life in their own hands. From being tailgated, having horns blown, cars going around turning traffic, to inappropriate gestures and being yelled at, not the mention the accidents, it’s becoming dangerous for us to even pick up litter or cut gras s during high traffic times. The officers who patrol the 45 mph zone of Sherman Road between 306 and Sperry Road, and the 35 mph zone of 306 from the area of the Market House to just south of Wilson Mills Road, should know we appreciate their efforts in slowing down drivers in this area. It’s nice to know that 25 mph zones don’t always take precedence.

Special thanks and gratitude to Sgt. Barco, Office Foster, Shipley and DiCicco, who work second shift and get the homeward-bound rush hour traffic for patrolling these two areas, among others. I also thank the officers from the other shifts who I do not get to see regularly for patrolling the same. I have asked the Ohio State Highway Patrol to monitor the area for speed, excessive takeoff (squealing tires) and extremely loud vehicles with no exhaust, for which they responded positively. Together, all of the Chester Police Department officers have done their best to help the residents of this area feel a little safe. William A. Russell Chester Township

Elementary School Librarians In the Chesterland News July 17 article “Cash Balance Positive, Expenses Down at WG,” a board of education member stated that the West G district’s “only librarian” had retired.

I would like to correct any misconceptions this comment may have created. Let us assure our elementary school families that both Lindsey and Westwood schools have been, and continue to be, staffed by full-time clerklibrarians (who also travel to the middle and high school buildings to assist in the libraries there.) In addition to everyday clerical activities such as circulation and shelving, we perform librarian duties such as meeting with each K-5 class every week for 3045 minutes for book exchange and discussion. We also present literacy and research activities. We are responsible for our libraries’ collection development and budgeting, and we develop storytimes to support classroom curriculums. So please be aware that your elementary school libraries are well-staffed and we continue to encourage your children to read for enjoyment and enrichment; for as we often remind our students — “knowledge is power.” Thank you for allowing us to clarify this situation. Diane Gasdick, Westwood Elementary School Clerk Librarian Darlene Zusy, Lindsey Elementary School Clerk Librarian
