Security is Still a Top Concern as Schools Resume By Angela Gartner While students were busy preparing for the first day of school this week, so were Geauga County school officials. However, instead of buying the usual school supplies, the districts were ensuring students would feel safe when entering school grounds and inside classrooms. Since the February school shooting at Chardon High School, which left three students dead and three injured, many districts have been stepping up their school security measures. "We are under pressure to restore the learning environment at the high school, which has been torn apart since Feb. 27," Chardon Schools Superintendent Joe Bergant said. "Our mission is to restore learning and we are doing a lot of work." He said it was a smooth
transition for new students who were easing into this new school year last Monday. "Everyone seemed upbeat and wants to get back in the routine of education," he said. The district has made counseling available for students who may still be feeling the effects of the traumatic event or have triggered emotions as they return to school, Bergant added. There have been changes to the school security with additional cameras that can record activity placed in Park and Maple elementary schools. Bergant said next summer, more cameras would be added to the remaining elementary schools in the district. Some community members may remember old-fashion locks on the high school's classroom doors. Bergant said with the new locks installed this summer, the teachers will have the ability to
lock the door from inside the classroom. Administrative staff, teachers and other classified school employees also participated in the online safety-training program, which is obligated by law. The company developed the training to help administrators and teachers to respond to an

West G, Kenston Superintendents Claypool Attacks Ruffled Feathers in Chicken Contest Septic System Grants By Glen Miller West Geauga and Kenston schools superintendents didn't “chicken out” Thursday at The Great Geauga County Fair. Both went head to head during the annual chicken flying contest where new West Geauga Superintendent Geoff Palmer was trumped by Kenston Superintendent Robert Lee.
Despite cheers from West Geauga students seated in a nearby small grandstand, Bomber, the Kenston bird, out flew Mascara, the West G chicken, which did an in-flight Uturn, landing in an area behind where it was pushed out of a mailbox by Palmer. Bomber — gently pushed with a plunger by Lee — flew straight and true, making it 11
feet, 7 inches, before landing where dozens of young, anxious chicken catchers lined up in the corral of the small grandstand and grabbed him. A loud, victorious roar arose from Kenston students seated in the grandstand for the contest, which started between West Geauga and Kenston four years ago.

By Glen Miller Geauga County Commissioner Walter “Skip” Claypool feels federal grants to local governments and individuals add to the growing $1.1 trillion national debt, most of which he contends is money borrowed from China. Thursday, Claypool made known his opposition to federal grants that he and fellow commissioners Mary Samide and Tracy Jemison approved when said he would no longer vote to approve Environmental Protection Agency grants available to help people who cannot afford to replace failing septic systems. The Aug. 30 commissioners meeting was held in the Junior Fair Pavilion at The Great Geauga County Fair in Burton.

Claypool, who displays a federal deficit clock at each commissioners meeting, expressed his displeasure the grants after he voted to approve a $22,380 Ohio EPA grant to replace a residential septic system in Russell Township. He explained he approved the payment of the grant money to Excavation Works, Inc. only because the county had previously approved the septic system’s installation. However, Claypool said he would no longer vote to approve such grants. “What right is it, if somebody takes on the responsibility to buy a home, to expect the taxpayers to pick up the burden if somebody has an issue or problem?” he

Flying Chicken from page 1 Lee’s prize was a trophy — a yellow chicken. Groups of students from both schools were given a timeout from educational “Geauga Leans” tours of the fairground’s agricultural barns and facilities. Sponsored by Geauga County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Tim Grendell, “Geauga Leans” was started several years ago when Grendell was a state senator to teach children with little knowledge of their nearby rural neighbors more about agriculture and its importance to American life. Grendell and his wife, 11th District Court of Appeals Judge Diane Grendell, sponsored this year’s annual Great Geauga County Fair Chicken Flying Contest, which was hosted by (WOIO) Channel 19 noon

weather forecaster Jason Handman. Handman paused the chicken flying contest long enough to do a live weather broadcast, which drew sighs of relief from a few fair officials. Handman predicted the rainy remnants of former Hurricane Isaac would hold off until Monday rather than come charging in Saturday as originally predicted. Eight roosters and 26 hens were pushed out of their mailbox perch by Fair Board President Bob Rogish. Surprisingly, a greater number of chickens made the same U-turn like Palmer’s chicken did, landing behind the elevated stand from which they were launched. One drew a few moos from cows in a nearby barn when it flew to safety on the barn roof. “I would fly the opposite direction if I was going to be
chased by all the kids lined up out there,” said a man who stopped to watch the contest. “The poor thing probably looked down from up there in the mailbox and said, ‘No way’ baby.” The overall winner of the chicken flying contest was Fool, a rooster owned by Chardon High School freshman Rachael Banks. Fool and Toffee, a chicken owned by Lana Strimbu, also a Chardon High School freshman, were the finalists in the contest. Toffie flew 29 feet, 3 inches during first flight — the longest of the contest — while Fool flew 21 feet, 9 inches during his initial flight. However, Toffee then joined the ranks of the U-turn chickens, while Fool flew 11 feet, 7 inches, winning Banks the $75 first prize. Strimbu walked away with $25 for Toffee’s efforts.

School Security from page 1 active shooter in the school building. Kenston Schools Superintendent Robert Lee said the high school assistant principal, along with a representative from the Bainbridge Police Department went to an ALICE training program and brought back some things that will be integrated into the schools' security response plans. "It was found that running and hiding, and a passive response to an active shooter increases the number of injured or (fatalities)," Lee said. "ALICE brought out some other additional security items for the schools to minimize the impact of a shooting." Kenston school officials have also been working on preventative measures to address student issues such as bullying with the Peaceful
Environment At Kenston (PEAK) program, he said. Lee added the district's relationship with law enforcement has changed over the years as there's more coordination between the two entities. In fact, more schools are working with their local law agencies to keep schools safe through preventative programs. West Geauga Schools Superintendent Geoffery Palmer said cameras have been added this month in Westwood Elementary School through Russell Township Police Department. James Russo, operations manager at West Geauga Schools, said the police department is picking up the cost, which is estimated at $17,000. "All the buildings are up to the same level," Palmer said. "That building, we had some concerns, so they added cameras to our secure entryway system."

One Step at a Time for West G Golfers By Jamie Ward The Wolverines varsity golf program sets small goals each season, a requirement in the Chagrin Valley Conference's Chagrin Division, one of the toughest golf conferences in the area, with Aurora, Chagrin Falls, Kenston and Orange perennial powers. “We just want to improve in the CVC and move up a bit,” said Jay Kletecka, the team's coach in his fourth season. West Geauga has moved to Fowler's Mill Golf Course in Munson Township, a course that Kletecka feels will improve the Wolerines program. “We’re getting a better summer program,” he said. “So we're getting kids who are more prepared now. Fowler's has been great to us. One of the pros there is a former West G student.” At the top of the team, there are three consistent scorers, Kletecka said, in Matt Forrai, T.J. Onderdonk and Milan Tropf. Kletecka said the team needs one of the other three — Jeff Gaetjens, Nick Paternitti and Cody Setlock — to play more consistently for the team to win more matches. West Geauga traveled to Pleasant Hill Golf Course in Aquilla Village to participate with CVC Valley teams Berkshire and Cardinal in a non-league match last week. The Wolverines had 179 total strokes from the top four finishers: Forrai (shot a 41), Onderdonk (45), Gaetjens (46) and Tropf (47). Berkshire (156)
Septic Grants from page 1 asked. “If I have a painting problem, is the next step to expect the government to pick up the debt of painting my house?” Rather than accepting government grants, people who are mandated to replace septic systems should have the cost applied as an assessment to their property taxes, he added. Holding up a photo of his 10 children, Claypool said, “There are other ways of approaching those problems rather than burdening my grandkids — your grandkids — with the costs.” County Administrator David Lair quickly noted Claypool was holding the photo upside down. “This type of grant is not our tax dollars coming back to us,” the recently appointed commissioner said. “This is purely a corrupt system that is being used to indebt the future of our kids and our grandkids.” Responded Samide, “Not everything is so cut and dry.” She explained the grants are made available to help lowincome people who cannot afford to replace their septic systems. Many people who need their septic systems replaced are long-time county residents who are living on fixed incomes and are faced with the high cost of
and Cardinal (176) both shot better. Forrai, despite having the fifth best score on the day, was not happy with his performance. “I came into the last hole two over and ended up not doing so well on that last hole,” Forrai, a sophomore, said. He said the course was in better condition than he had ever seen it. “It’s not too different from last year,” Forrai said. “I played varsity last year. It's high school golf. You can’t take it too seriously or else it's not fun.” Junior Jeff Gaetjens also wished he could have played better. “I had two doubles, which I really could have done without. But all in all I played OK,” he said. Gaetjens added he has shot well in practice but has “exploded,” as he said, in matches. “I don't really know what it is, but something about finally doing, like, the real thing, playing real in matches has just gotten into my head,” Gaetjens said. “I've never really done well in a match before. I'm a little disappointed but it's early on, but I'm hoping to do better later.” Gaetjens, who has not golfed varsity until this season, thinks it's a mental thing. “That or I'm really used to my home course and not many other courses,” he said. Milan Tropf said he had poor tee shots. “I just really could not figure out my drives today. That's what really killed my game,” Tropf said.
On playing the difficult CVC Chagrin course, Tropf said the team just tries to relax. “If we have a horrible round, and I think they both agreed,” he said gesturing to his teammates. “If we have a horrible round, we just shake it off. I mean, some of us do really well one day, and then some of us the other day just flat out don't do well at all. We just have to relax, and that's what we do. We just go out there and have fun.” Kletecka said Forrai, who just missed districts last season as a freshman, has a chance to go far in the postseason this year and possibly qualify for the state tournament before graduation. The Wolverines golf Sept. 4 at Fowler's Mill against Chagrin Falls. The Chagrin Valley Conference’s Chagrin tournament is set for Sept. 20 at Legend Lake in Chardon.
installing new septic units, Samide said. “If you find yourself in this position, what do you do?” she asked. “You may have your house paid for, but you may not have the extra cash to fix your septic and they (EPA) are breathing down your neck to do it.” Neither can the county health district and the state EPA ignore homeowners with bad septic systems “because this is a health issue,” Samide said. “So we’re stuck with cleaning up our septic (systems),” Samide said. Claypool said he would continue to bring the debt clock to commissioners meeting until his temporary term expires in November. The Geauga County Republican Party’s Central Committee appointed Claypool as a temporary commissioner in early July to fill the seat of retired Commissioner Bill Young until a new commissioner is elected. Samide, who was defeated by fellow Republican Ralph Spidalieri, was selected by the central committee as the GOP’s ballot candidate. She is running against Democrat Jim Dvorak. In other action: • Fair Board President Bob Rogish was presented certificates from the Ohio auditor’s,
treasurer’s and secretary of state’s offices commemorating the 190year-old Geauga County Fair as the oldest county fair in the state. The certificates also noted the sound fiscal management of the fair. • The commissioners approved a resolution honoring the 4-H Hare Raisers Rabbit Club for its continued success in leading 4-H fundraising for the Geauga Hunger Task Force. This year, the 4-H Hare Raisers raised $3,076.90 for the GHTF, the most it has collected in eight years, said Rev. Ed Peterson, task force president. The money purchased nearly 1,90 0 food items, enough to provide about 12,000 meals, Commissioner Tracy Jemison said. • The commissioners approved a resolution honoring the late Reno “Jay” Reda Jr., former Ohio Department of Natural Resources wildlife officer for Geauga County, for his work in creating the fair’s natural resources area, also known as “Reno World.” Reda died of cancer earlier this year. • The commissioners honored the work retiring Geauga County Engineer Robert Phillips has done over the last 30 years.

In memory of
No matter what the sport, Dick Sneller was a team player. His love of athletics was only overshadowed by his enjoyment in working with young athletes. Throughout his productive life, Dick continually strived to provide recreational opportunities locally for our communityâ€™s youth and to develop our childrenâ€™s talents so they could reach their fullest potential. For 25 years Dick positively influenced many students as a physical education teacher at West Geauga. While in the district he coached varsity wrestling, freshman girlsâ€™ basketball, eight grade football, and girlsâ€™ varsity softball. He also was an assistant athletic director for four years during the 1970s. One of his most notable achievements at West Geauga was starting a wrestling program. With a lot of interest but little money, he recruited athletes, gathered some supplies and formed a team. Dick coached the schoolâ€™s varsity team from 1961-65 and was its freshman coach for seven years after that. As a student athlete at Shaw High School in East Cleveland, he excelled in baseball. During his junior year Dick was the catcher on the state championship team in 1944. He continued his involvement with the sport through coaching and umpiring and through his association with the West Geauga Baseball Federation. Many of his summers were spent at Parkside coaching various teams, umpiring for several leagues and performing maintenance on the field. Dick also helped establish a community youth football program in Chester and Munson townships that later became a project of the Chesterland Lions Club. Dick received a bachelorâ€™s degree in education from Ohio University and served as a corporal in the Marines. Shortly after he married, Dick moved to Chesterland in 1949. He and his wife opened a sporting goods store in Mayfield Heights, and later opened a similar one in Chesterland. Dick was diagnosed with cancer shortly after retiring in 1985, and he spent his last years at his home in Russell with his wife, Joan, and son, Jeffrey. Dick Snellerâ€™s lifetime commitment to offer and enhance recreational opportunites for youth will be remembered for years to come.

news Affordable Home Improvement Project Most people have decided to “stay put” in homes and are trying to conserve savings. A great way to change the look of an old tired room is to paint it. For just a small amount of money, change the way a home looks by adding color and life to an area of the house that needs a change. Paint makes rooms like warmer or cooler, smaller or larger.
Turney’s Hardware offers paint solutions for every budget. Benjamin Moore’s Ben and Ace’s newest brand, Clark & Kensington, are reasonable priced. Both brands have paint/ primer combinations to help
save a step and are available in many different, vibrant colors to make a room stand out. For a few dollars more, the new Regal Select paint line offers a wide array of finishes and smoother application. Turney’s also carries Wooster brushes and rollers, made in Ohio. These tools will ad the professional touch to any paint project, Stop in and visit the paint department at Turney’s Hardware, 12670 West Geauga Plaza, Chester Township.
“I like the surprises in nature — the Bald Eagle, deer, all kinds of creatures. I was touching up a painting and a little bird jumped into the frame. I had to paint it in.”

news The Quilted Thimble When local quilt shop Remembrances closed in 2006, quilters in Chester Township discovered they had to travel miles to find fabric and patterns. Luckily, Chester will again be able to supply quilters with the latest quilting supplies.
The Quilted Thimble, owned by Russell Township resident Marty Anastasio, has moved into West Geauga Plaza. Choosing a location for the store was easy, she said. “Chesterland and Chesterland’s small businesses offered a great support system and I
loved the small town feel,” the owner said. Former employee of Remembrances, Anastasio knew exactly what she wanted — The Quilted Thimble to offer to quilting enthusiasts. They can come into the store and purchase everything they need to complete a quilt. Anastasio has found in her 35 years of quilting, she had to visit different shops to get the necessary materials to complete one quilt. Recognizing that there has been a movement of younger people joining quilt groups, The Quilted Thimble is also offering
