Chester Fiscal Officer Defends Record, Considers Resigning By Diane Ryder During an extra contentious Chester Township Trustees meeting Thursday night, in front of a standing room only crowd, Fiscal Officer Mike Stark defended his record against charges of mismanagement from former Fiscal Officer Karen Austin. He then abruptly left the meeting, announcing he would only attend future meetings quarterly, as required under Ohio law. Stark requested his private email address be published so he could receive comments from the public and said he was considering resignation over what he termed a “despicable” character assassination by Austin. At the last meeting, which Stark did not attend, Austin accused Stark of mismanagement, including failure to reconcile bank statements and


entering a figure twice in the township’s appropriations budget. “When I was not here, there was quite a bit of talk about the township finances,” Stark said Thursday, adding he had prepared a presentation answering Austin’s accusations.

He said he had been the target of character assassinations by Austin and others, and when he had been compared to former Fiscal Officer Michael Spellman, in prison for stealing millions in township funds, he had to defend himself. “It’s character assassination and I won’t stand for it,” Stark said. “I need to speak my piece.” Austin denied comparing him specifically to Spellman, but had questioned whether “history was repeating itself” in statements she made during the Aug. 22 meeting. Stark said officials with Local Government Services, an arm of the Ohio Auditor’s Office, had recently gone over the bank reconciliations during his 18 month tenure and had discovered only two errors totaling $1,776.07.

In addition, he refuted Austin’s claim he had misreported fire department finances. “The township finances are in good shape,” Stark assured trustees. “There was never any missing money, as they would lead you to believe.”

“It’s character assassination and I won't stand for it.” – Mike Stark He added, “I did have some problems with reconciliation, but it’s not like balancing your checkbook.” Stark accused Austin of leaving office without giving him any guidance or help in the transition, and showed photos of a trashed workplace with scattered files he said Austin left behind.

He also countered Austin had left office without completing 34 sets of meeting minutes, had hired a consultant for $7,500 to transcribe verbatim minutes, neglected to file titles for four township vehicles, owes $38,000 in back taxes on one property she owns and $1,400 on another, neglects maintaining her property and was part owner of the former Honky Tonk Saloon. At one point, Trustee Michael Joyce tried to get Stark to stop, saying he was giving his opinion. “He is an elected official,” Trustee Judy Caputo said. Stark added, “I have a lot more and all of it is factual. I’m the one who is being scrutinized.” Stark accused Austin of “sour grapes” for losing her

Falling Into Autumn With UH Geauga Donates CPR Machine First Chester Jamboree By Diane Ryder By Josh Echt The rows of apples in the orchard are straight, the red fruit glistening beneath pleasant blue skies. The buildings of Eddy Fruit Farm in Chester Township buzz with activity. A cash register rings, a clerk checks happy customers out and autumn is underway. It’s business as usual, but the establishment will soon sponsor an event that will benefit both Northeast Ohio as well as a country a few thousand miles

from the Caves Road farm, Haiti. The farm will host the Fall Jamboree 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 28, a day of festivities and music followed by an evening of entertainment, said event publicist Donna Robinson. Events include clowns, music, games, face-painting and other activities. Families can pick their own apples for purchase and buy pumpkins and fall produce at Eddy Fruit Farm’s market. Lunch will also be available

The Chester Township Fire Department is the latest department in the county to receive a Lucas cardio pulmonary resuscitation machine from University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center. Fire Chief John Wargelin officially accepted the gift from hospital president M. Steven Jones at the trustees Aug. 22 meeting. “This piece of equipment can do CPR on somebody and has brought a lot of people back to life,” Wargelin said. “It does what used to be done manually and can do what humans can’t do because it does it perfectly every time.” The chief said the machine can function in tight spaces and in stressful rescue situations, and never gets tired or makes mistakes. “The benefit is huge to our community,” Wargelin said. Jones asked the audience to raise their hand if they know how to perform CPR. A few hands went up. “Everyone should be trained in CPR,” Jones said. “It’s what saves lives. We hold a survivors’ dinner every year to celebrate people who have survived cardiac arrest. This year about 30 attended. Every person that lived had had great CPR.”


Chester Township Fire Chief John Wargelin accepts the donation of a Lucas CPR machine from M. Steven Jones, president of University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center. The hospital is donating a machine to each fire department in the county.

Jones said hospital officials decided to donate a Lucas machine to all the fire departments in the county. “Local EMS services allow us to save lives, which has helped rate Geauga County as the healthiest in the state,” Jones said. Wargelin said his department is grateful for the donation of the $15,000 machine, but he also urged people to take a CPR course. “It takes us five or six minutes to get to your home and

every minute counts,” the chief said. “The sooner CPR is administered, the better the chance of survival.” Trustee Judy Caputo added, “Thank all of you at Geauga Hospital on behalf of our residents and fire department. This will enhance the safety and wellbeing in Chester Township.” Wargelin said the machine will be kept in the department’s lead rescue squad and he will recommend purchasing a second machine when money becomes available.

Fiscal Officer from page 1 election to him and said she was going after him because of personal hatred and because she wants the job back. Austin denied the accusations. Stark defeated Austin in the November 2011 general election with nearly 56 percent of the vote. As the accusations flew, one woman told Austin she should hold her comments until the public comment portion of the meeting.

“They’ve made the meetings a carnival and I think the majority of the people are sick of this.” – Mike Stark A resident who identified himself only as Steve interrupted the meeting by saying, “This is unbelievable. I just moved to Chesterland. This is a joke. I can’t believe I live in Chesterland. This is a waste of my time and I’m really disappointed.” He added, “We’re listening to a feud here. Mr. Joyce, please do your job here; you need to get this under control.” After verbally warning the resident to be quiet, Joyce called Chester police to ask for him to be removed from the meeting. “Sorry for the interruption, I’m gonna leave now,” the man said as he walked out. The officer arrived soon after the resident left. Stark asked the news media to publish his personal email address: He reiterated he wanted residents to contact him directly

with their comments. Stark said a group of residents has created chaos with their negativity and cited a periodic flyer, The Chester Observer, with causing much of the problem. “Are these people heroes or zeroes?” he asked. “The Observer has authorless articles with no bylines. Are they part of the problem or part of the solution? I need to know what people think.” Stark said he believed many of the people causing the negativity are friends and supporters of Trustee Ken Radtke. The trustee emphatically denied that. “They’ve made the meetings a carnival and I think the majority of the people are sick of this,” said Stark. He told trustees he would submit his resignation if he believes a majority of Chester residents support what he characterized as the negative forces. “I’ve sat silent for 18 months and I’m not going to anymore,” Stark said. “The inmates are running the asylum. This is absolute lunacy.” Stark said, under Ohio law, township fiscal officers are only required to attend trustees meetings quarterly. “From now on, I’m coming to one meeting a quarter. This is absurd,” he said. “I hope I’ve made a difference to the people and not for those who make the noise. I’m gonna go.” Stark got up to leave when Austin said, “That’s really childish.” “You’ve got to hammer her down,” Caputo told Joyce. Stark left the meeting at 8:17 p.m. and Caputo took the minutes after trustees appointed her fiscal officer pro tem. “It’s a shame what happened here tonight,” former Trustee Pat Mula told trustees during the public comment portion, near the end of the meeting. “I don’t blame the fiscal officer.” Austin told trustees Stark had attacked her character and reiterated her accusations against him.

“The character attack has nothing to do with how he’s doing his job as fiscal officer,” Austin said.

“This is unbelievable. I just moved to Chesterland. This is a joke. I can't believe I live in Chesterland.” – Steve She added when she left office on March 22, 20 12, someone had changed the password on her UAN computer, shutting her out. “That changed my ability to do my job,” Austin said. “On March 28, they locked me out of the building and I wasn’t allowed to carry out my term, which ended March 31, 2012.” She also accused Stark of working as fiscal officer for two weeks before he was bonded and of discussing a state audit before it was released, both illegal under Ohio law.

“We should all look within ourselves and relax.” – John Ziegler “I’m disappointed that this (discussion) went on while Mr. Stark couldn’t be here,” Mula told trustees. Austin then accused Mula of having a personal relationship with Stark and Caputo. “I know it’s an old phrase, but can’t we all get along? This is not healthy for the township or for you,” said resident John Ziegler. “We should all look within ourselves and relax.”

Hope in Haiti organizations are co-sponsoring the event, Robinson said. Proceeds will benefit children in the Chesterland community through improvements to the playing fields and the monies will help feed children in Haiti. The association runs the adjacent Clay Eddy Fields, which contain playing fields for softball, soccer, youth T-ball and baseball. Building Homes and Hope in Haiti, founded in 2010, is a relief organization that provides humanitarian aid to victims of the 2010 earthquake. That earthquake killed more than 250,000 in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, Robinson said. “Our group has been hosting a Haiti fundraiser every year since the earthquake,” said Chester Township resident Jackie Rychel, who co-chaired the event with Eddy Fruit Farm owner Bart Alcorn. “We outgrew previous venues, so Bart offered the farm.” Rychel said the two organizations would combine efforts because Alcorn has experience running fundraisers that support the baseball and soccer fields as well as space and manpower to allow a large attendance. “Bart and I have been friends over the years through being involved with our individual family businesses,” she said. Rychel, who leads teams to Haiti quarterly, said proceeds from the benefit will go to organizations that have demonstrated the ability to use the funding responsibly.

Her church, St. Mark Lutheran Church in Chester Township, also operates a Haiti Mission Committee that makes decisions on where the funds will go. Robinson said others on the planning team have varied skill sets, including project management, marketing, fundraising and, “most importantly, a servant’s heart.” Rychel said the group hopes to provide a memorable experience and anticipated it will take place in 2014. “We hope to provide a funfilled family day and an enjoyable evening of entertainment for the community,” she said. “If we can raise money to provide services and relief for our neighbors across the street and around the world, then we will be twice-blessed.” Tickets for the adult dinner and entertainment are $40/person. Reservations are required. Visit or call 440-729-7842 for tickets or for more information.

Chester Twp. Cemetery Expansion Unearths Neighbors’ Concerns By Diane Ryder The Chester Township Cemetery expansion project has neighbors raising safety issues about fencing and retention ponds in the new section, which sits behind 10 properties on Whiting Drive, between Chillicothe Road and Reserve Lane. Residents met with Chagrin Valley Engineering representative Mike Henry, contractor for the project, at the Aug. 22 trustees meeting. Trustee Ken Radtke, who oversees the project, said fencing options include a 6-foothigh chain link fence coated in black vinyl, which he said blends into the scenery, or a 6foot wooden board-on-board fence, which he said would raise maintenance issues. Henry said the area would need up to 500 feet of fencing, but the fence would not be continuous. “I don’t think board-onboard (fencing) is a good idea because of the maintenance issues,” Trustee Judy Caputo said. She recommended a 4-foot chain link fence with plantings on the township side. “Neighbors don’t want to look at a six-foot chain link,” she added.

Henry said a six-foot fence was needed to prevent children from climbing over them and playing around the retention ponds. “We’d prefer a 4-foot fence if we get any say in it,” said Whiting Drive resident Wendy Lesko. Resident Jeff Rosenbaum said he would prefer arbor vitae bushes as a buffer between the rear of his property and the cemetery. “It would be green all year,” he pointed out. Lesko added, “We would vote for just arbor vitae because we’d prefer just green.” Trustee Mike Joyce said arbor vitae would give a visual block, but would not keep kids out. Lesko said one retention pond has been full of stagnant water since heavy rains in May and it is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, turtles and snakes. Henry said the pond should eventually drain. “This year’s been exceptionally wet,” Henry said. “It should get shallower, but there will be water in those ponds.” Former Trustee Pat Mula said there should not be standing water in retention ponds,

which are designed to hold storm water runoff, then drain. “The board has an obligation to have an engineer look at the retention basin and make sure it drains properly,” Mula said. “Water should not be sitting in there.” Henry said the pond was constructed to Environmental Protection Agency standards and his company will remove sediment in two or three years, once the surrounding top soil has been stabilized. “I think you have a bigger problem than fencing here,” Mula told trustees. Radtke said he would make copies of his notes from the meeting and distribute them to Whiting Drive residents. Joyce said he would look into the cost and feasibility of planting arbor vitae. No action was taken.

I would like to personally thank the Chester Township Park Board, Chesterland Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club, Kiwanis and all the other community businesses and organizations that pulled together to make ChesterFest 2013 a great event. The park board worked hard this year making some great improvements to Parkside Park and ChesterFest was a great opportunity to show off the results of those efforts. With beautiful weather, live music and great food from our local restaurants, turnout was fantastic and it was great to see so many folks enjoying themselves at the park. Thank you to all who supported and participated in ChesterFest. I am already looking forward to the next event. Ken Radtke Jr. Chester Township Trustee

The event was from noon to 5 p.m. It was estimated that in a five-hour event, over 3,000 people were in attendance. At this gathering, I witnessed one of the highlights since moving to Chester Township over 20 years ago and why I am a township trustee. My observations during the event were amazing … young families with their children, teenagers with their friends, middle-aged adults, and most importantly senior residents who also attended. The weather was perfect and so was the event. To see the children laughing as they ate snow cones that turned their lips blue … to see them learning about so many different things that the vendors offered and the township safety forces offered including the look of amazement on their faces when they entered the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office communications vehicle, was a pleasure. The teenagers who joked and smiled as they throw baseballs at the targets of the dunk tank and then over to ride the mechanical bull for a minute or two before being tossed off was good clean fun. The middle-aged adults were watching their children, talking to friends and enjoying time

Program designed for ages 18 and older. Registration required. with them and even their parents, three generations enjoying family time … it doesn’t get any better than that. My favorite memory of he day was observing and talking to our senior residents. The look of enjoyment on their faces while listening to the different musicians play different types of music while sitting on the park benches, enjoying each other as well as the event. In my conversations with them, I felt as if I was a part of their family or close friend, listening to their stories and jokes. This was a wonderful feeling I will not forget. This is what Chester Township is all about. Secondly, but most importantly, this day could not have happened without the Chesterland Chamber of Commerce, the businesses in Chester Township, the different community organizations, volunteers, township staff and many, many others… all of this taking place right in the middle of your township at Parkside Park. The park itself has undergone a revitalization that here again would not have been possible without the Park Board Commissioners, Lance Yandell, Joe Weiss and Todd Bidwell, along with all the people, businesses and community organizations that have stepped up to polish the gem we all enjoy.

Perennial Gardeners Win at Fair The Perennial Gardeners of Chesterland gathered garden flowers and competed at The Great Geauga County Fair with individual and team entries. In all, the club earned 51 ribbons: 21 first-place ribbons; 13 second-place ribbons; 10 thirdplace ribbons; and seven fourthplace ribbons. Longtime member Lorinda Plank was awarded the Reserve Best-of-Show for her interpretation of the “Julia Child” design. This year, the floral designs were all inspired by women of influence.

Blue ribbons were earned across the categories, including Potted Plants and Hanging Baskets, a first-time entry for the club this year. The club triumphed with a “Triple Crown” of blue ribbons for the extensive displays of Twenty Flower Varieties, Gladiolus and Dahlias. The latter two displays were completed by multi-year champion Cindy Wenger with the assistance of Diane Fabec. Individual blue ribbons were also won by Sue Zala and Lorinda Plank, for the Cut Flower Specimens; club President Susie Szabo, for her live “Martha Washington” wreath in the Design division; and Gunita Kennell, for her mixed succulent garden in the Potted Plant division.

Mary Ann Moczulski Receives Chapman Award Mary Ann Moczulski, of Chester Township, has been named the 2013 recipient of the prestigious Chapman Award. Each year, the Geauga County Library Foundation bestows this award on an individual who, through his or her actions, best promoted the interests of reading and books. Moczulski’s devotion to libraries began during her childhood in East Cleveland, where she spent countless hours in her local library and began a lifelong enthusiasm for literature and illustrations for children. She went on to teach in East Cleveland for 29 years, which set the framework for her retirement years. Her love of books and reading and her “pay-back” mindset led her to join the Geauga West Friends of the Library and help with book sales. She later became a member of the Geauga West Friends of the Library Board and has served as its president for many years. Under her leadership, the Friends’ 400-plus membership is at an all-time high, with nearly 100 active volunteers. Moczulski says she derives great personal joy in being associated with a group so supportive of her passion for education, reading, books and helping others.

Fall Book Sale The Friends are now accepting donations for the annual fall book sale which will take place Nov. 6-9. Bring gently used or new children’s and adult books, collectibles, comic books, CDs, DVDs, audio books on CD, puzzles and games for adults and children, sheet music, coffee table books and prints to the library during regular hours. No textbooks or encyclopedias. A receipt for donation is available. Proceeds raised support adult and children’s programming at the library.

Mary Ann Moczulski, recipient of the Geauga County Chapman Award.

Her friends and colleagues credit the success of their book sale fundraisers to Moczulski’s leadership and organizational skills. As chairperson of the Friends’ book sale committee, Moczulski devotes hours of her time reviewing, sorting and cleaning books donated for sale as well as identifying, researching and pricing any collectible books offered for sale. The money raised is used to assist in purchasing materials and programming for Geauga West Library. Moczulski’s service to her community is not limited to the library. She is also a member of the Geauga County Department on Aging (West Geauga Center), the Chesterland Historical Foundation, the Cel-ebration Lutheran Church and the Geauga County Retired Teachers Association. She has volunteered for the cancer society and Geauga Park District, and formerly served on the Geauga Humane Society board.
