Following Monday’s meeting, Kostoff said the city would “vigorously defend its position.” In a procedural matter, Council gave second reading to an ordinance to submit a charter amendment initiated by a grassroots group called Citizens 4 Norton. The amendment, to appear on the Aug. 6 ballot, essentially prohibits the city from assessing any property owner or resident any cost relating to proposed sewer improvements. The amendment would also cap residential water and sewer bills at $35 monthly, allowing for a 2 percent yearly increase if approved by a majority vote of Council.

In the living room was what Davis described as a huge bowl filled to the top with cigar ashes and a ladle to stir the ashes. Davis described Petrie as very calm and matter-of-fact. The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide and determined the woman sustained stab wounds to the chest and head, as well as blunt force trauma to the head. Detectives continue their investigation. Petrie was due to appear by video from the county jail for arraignment before Barberton Municipal Court Judge David Fish, April 10 at 1 p.m., after the Herald’s deadline.

Vaughn said NDS has arranged an $800,000 lease with Sony for the digital projectors and related equipment and is spending another $300,000 for remodeling and cleaning.

• When you and I were young, Maggie I look forward to the Barberton Herald each week. I grew up in Portage Lakes and graduated in 1954 from Coventry High. I remember when my sister and brother would walk from Greenbay Drive to the Lake or Park Theatre. That was when it was safe to allow your children to walk the roads with no fear!

Don't fence me in I would be nice if Council would do something to improve the looks around town by painting the dirty looking old wood fences everywhere. Perhaps some help could be furnished by volunteers. That would be appreciated by everyone.

• Ages and ages ago I remember the Five and Dime on Second Street and the Lyric Theatre, but I don't remember the old Past Time Theatre. Does anyone remember the old Downtowner Restaurant? Anyway, the winter of 1956 my future husband, myself and two of our dear friends happened to be there when a bad snow storm hit. We decided to go out in the middle of Second Street and have a snow ball fight. Those were the good old days. I have a lot of memories growing up in Barberton. I always look forward to receiving my Barberton Herald. Hodge, keep up the good work, I really enjoy reading your column!

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen I have a complaint about the new trash company. They don't get out of the trucks and they didn't dump my barrel. They just picked the bags out. They left six to eight inches of trash in my barrel. We need to go back to Waste Management.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition I'm calling about the beautiful Lake Anna. It's constantly full of goose poop. Somebody's got to do something. I'm tired of people making fun of Barberton all the time. I'm tired of having to stick up for Barberton. I tell people to go down the lake, it's beautiful. What city has a lake in the middle of the town? But now they go down there and what do they have to do? Dodge poop!

I'll trade my horse and saddle Now we get a water-sewer increase after a supposed trash decrease. So where are we are ahead? After an increase in real estate, income taxes, car insurance and home insurance, am I supporting the school tax levy? Absolutely not!

The last mile home The streets are absolutely atrocious. Patch upon patch and a hole in the middle. The new administration surely hasn't improved the street situation. We are paying more and getting less.

Back home I think it's a shame that some will not be voting for the school levy. I don't find it fair to say that kids don't need foreign language in the elementary school and they need to get back to basic math, reading and science. I don't believe that the administrators should have to live in the city because our fire and police, nor city workers, have to live in the city. You cannot penalize administrators for that. By the way, there are more than one administrator who lives in the school district. (Views Line continues, Page 10)

That’s my home All too often we look at and dwell on the negative while overlooking the great things surrounding us, including the benefits of living in Barberton. Barberton offers countless benefits when compared to surrounding cities. For example, Barberton boasts a revitalized downtown and is working to remove abandoned homes, while offering a variety of housing options. The Magic City also has a beautiful YMCA with affordable rates, a full-service Parks and Recreation Department that maintains the neighborhood parks and offers a variety of youth activities, a summer concert series, a family-friendly library, a hospital, city utilities, low tax rate, many great restaurants and shops, an Active Adult Center and last but certainly not least, excellent schools. Views Line rebuttal: At no time has the Barberton School District treasurer been given a $100,000 bonus. In April 2012, the board voted to reorganize administrative rolesandresponsibilities.Specifically,theboardreorganizedthe treasurer’srolesandresponsibilities. Thisisauniquemodeland supported by the governor under the pretexts of consolidation to lower taxpayer burdens. The newly created CFO/COO position focuses on all areas of operation and infrastructure. In Ohio, the superintendent’s role is the assignment/ placement of all employees with the exception of business office staff and the treasurer.  The newly-created position of CFO/COO along with new responsibilities added to the superintendent role consolidated four administration positions into two. Eliminated were the position of business manager and assistant superintendent. The newly created positions were vetted to create a new pay scale for both top administrative positions. Both contracts were negotiated and awarded at an amount less than other like districts. This information was covered in the Herald. In total these decisions have saved the school district $188,956. This information was covered in the Herald. All board meetings are open to the public. Joe Stefan, President, Barberton Board of Education

Excellent schools are essential in any community and our school is again rated excellent by the state of Ohio. This rating is a result of the collaborative effort and support from parents, students, community members and school staff. The school district and community should be extremely proud of this rating and seek to maintain it. However, the school district’s excellent rating may be jeopardized without continued support. Cuts to programs and students moving out of the district could not only sink the quality of education, but depreciate the value of living in the Magic City. Neighboring communities pay higher property taxes and often without many of the benefits Barberton residents receive. The city has a lot to offer. If we want to continue to attract young families and businesses to stay thriving, we need strong schools. As the election day approaches, focus on the positive and keep the magic alive by voting yes on Issue 3! Heather Weeks

I hang my head and cry Now they have gone and done it! This new modern look. They are putting bathrooms in with the master bedroom. Can you believe it? It’s OK if you’re sick, I guess. No walls or doors? Now isn’t that romantic, a commode by your bed. Just what I’ve always wanted, what’s next? The tub in the kitchen for everyone, once a week? I think they have gone too far this time. Jeanne Tomlinson

Volunteer brings joyful attitude Kaitlyn Wolfe is a student at Kent State University who, throughout the school year, volunteers as a receptionist with Community Pregnancy Center. Kaitlyn’s love for children drives her to invest countless hours in families and their little ones, whether at CPC or elsewhere. “Empathy is critical,” Kaitlyn says, “You have to place yourself in the struggling mother or father’s position and feel for them.”

I see them everywhere - on the Internet, in TV ads, magazines, even in the newspapers. Promises that there is now a pill which will guarantee that the user will drop 10 pounds in 10 days. The stuff of miracles. I think the ads proliferate this time of year because the weather is beginning to warm up and we know that sooner or later we’re going to have to don those dreaded revealing summer togs. Bathing suit season is looming. Time to drop those winter pounds and get slim. All those lovely comfort foods that we scarfed down when the weather was cold have left their mark. In my case they went directly from the mouth to the hips. There is forgiveness in roomy sweatshirts and

jeans. There is no forgiveness in shorts and tee shirts. You’ll see folks everywhere ignoring the principle that tight fitting clothes should be worn only by the young and fit. Or maybe they were young and fit when they bought them and the situation has changed (read the previous paragraph). Unfortunately I have to get up, get dressed, and face myself in the mirror. I had to put away all that nice comfortable cold weather clothing and get out the summer stuff. Somehow between early last fall and this spring, it all shrunk. Or maybe some evil Genie has spirited away my own clothes and left those of someone else. But there are those miraculous ads. I’d like to believe (See HERSELF, Page 10)

cooperation of the administration and the teachers involved,” Dr. Foster said. “This term, we have nine Akron U.

And we have 13 Social Studies education majors working in Rob Walker’s class,” Foster said. Dr. Br a d Ma g u t h , assistant professor of Social Studies Education at Akron, is excited about the benefits for both university and high school students. “We’ve created a learning community that pushes and challenges its members to be prepared and to participate in classroom discussions,” he said. “As we push the students, they push us to be better teachers and create meaningful learning opportunities.” B a r b e r t o n Superintendent Patti Cleary said the program is a classic “win-win,” since University of Akron students receive academic credit for their work and high school students benefit at no cost to the district. “Our students learn the ‘real world’ life of a high school classroom,” Dr. Foster said. “In working with experienced and dedicated high school

In Rob Walker’s U.S. History classes, students are divided into small groups in which discussions are led by the college students, allowing for in-depth exchanges which otherwise may not be available.

Foster and Maguth praised the efforts of teachers Walker, LaCroix and Weeks. “They are committed to using UA students and faculty to provide a more individualized and enhanced learning environment for their students and, in the process, they’re helping to shape future generations of social studies and English teachers,” Maguth said.

Don't ' tell ll me your troubles I am a former Barberton High School graduate. I live in Columbus and read the Herald weekly. I was just reading about people and them not understanding where the money comes from to support the school. It doesn't just come from local income and property tax. It also comes from federal money, in-state money, which even here in my city of Columbus, our monies are cut as well. People need to educate themselves on where public education funding comes from.

The last roundup I have a complaint about the trash company. They took my personal trash can this morning and threw it in the truck. The people next door didn't get their garbage bags picked up either.

One day while riding the bus, I heard the bus driver call dispatch that an older women tripped and fell at the stop and was in need of medical help. How many more with be hurt before the city and Metro get this fixed?

It makes no difference now Your article was incorrect about the ALICE drills. Barberton was not the first/only to have this. Norton Schools did the ALICE drill in September 2012.

Back in the doghouse again What is up with Norton that they would consider spending that much for a football stadium? They do not have a clue how the average family has to watch every dollar. Property taxes are already way too high. Roads are crumbling, services are lacking, schools are charging extra, everyone it seems, except teachers, makes too much money while the rest of us just try to survive.

currently hanging on my ski machine. I might thus lose weight. Certainly my wallet would lose weight - those pills are never cheap. Or I could eliminate spending the money on the magic pill, do all of the other things, and very likely lose the same amount of weight. Or I could just buy clothing in a larger size. That would mean heading to the mall to look over all the newly displayed spring outfits. Maybe a stop for a cinnamon roll and coffee. And my favorite store is having a sale! What the heck, last year’s stuff is outdated anyhow.

Reminders for riding mower safety Riding lawn mowers are tailor-made for people who have large expanses of property to maintain. Though such mowers initially may have been created for commercial landscapers, eventually private citizens realized the benefits. Despite their convenience and availability, riding mowers are not a piece of machinery that should be taken lightly. Various statistics show mowers as a major cause of injury each year. A Johns Hopkins University study found more than 80,000 Americans are injured and 95 annual deaths can be attributed to mower accidents. To ensure safety heed these tips. * Look for a mower where the blade turns off if the machine tips or if the driver leaves the seat. * Wear goggles and earbuds when operating the mower to avoid eye and ear injury.

* Remove sticks, toys, rocks, and other items from the lawn before mowing. * Operate the mower up and down a slope instead of sideways to maintain stability. * Never fuel a hot engine. * Do not let children ride the mower alone or in tandem with an adult.

Council endorses school levy Rich Muller Herald Staff Writer City Council approved a resolution to endorse the Barberton Schools’ five-year 8.45 mill emergency operating levy by a 7-1 vote. Council member Terry Avant, 5th Ward, said the resolution is not to strongarm people into voting for the levy but it is mainly to show Council recognizes the importance of a strong educational program. John Lysenko, 2nd Ward, said, “I want to make it clear

that when I vote ‘yes’ I’m certainly not condoning the fact that the state has passed these hard decisions down to local schools, and a lot of other issues.” “I think there are children that will certainly suffer from these cuts,” he also said. Lysenko invited school administrators who do not live in Barberton to move to the city and that he believes they will have a more vested interest in the success of the schools if they do. The lone vote against the endorsement was cast by

Gary Endres, 1st Ward, who said, “the failure is at the state level” and most residents cannot afford the levy. “The reality is that when we invest in our youth, they will do better going forward,” Council President Fred Maurer said. “Their wealth will increase and poverty will go down directly proportional to that wealth they are able to make for themselves.” Maurer stated property taxes are applied to the taxable value of a house and property, not the assessed value.

SCHOOLS

The Barberton Herald has invited readers to submit school-related questions to be answered by Barberton school officials. More questions and answers are below. If you have a question, please email it to carl@barbertonherald.com or drop off at the Herald office. Q – The May 7 levy, if passed, would raise $3 million per year. How will the school district spend this money? A – The $3 million raised would replace only a portion of the revenue lost in the last five years. It would enable the district to keep the present staff and restore busing to the 2011-2012 level. Q – I’ve heard the schools could save money by reducing the pay school board members receive. How much do school board members earn for serving on the board? A – The board members earn a lump sum $85 per meeting before taxes, which comes to about $2,000 per year per board member. This amount is only paid for official meetings, and board members do not get paid for committee meetings or other events they attend. Many districts pay their board members over $125 per meeting. Q – Would you provide the annual total dollar income and expense figures for the past five years? What are the dollar amounts of the major income sources and major expense items for this time period? This would help voters better understand the causes of the deficit. A – Barberton Schools has a budget of about $37 million, down from $40 million five years ago. Our largest expense is personnel, which makes up about 75 percent of our budget. To see exact income and expense numbers, please come to the Community Meeting Thursday, April 18 at 6 p.m. at the YMCA Active Adult Center. Treasurer Ryan Pendleton will review the five-year forecast for all attendees and will answer questions. You can also view the five-year forecast online. Q – The budget deficit could be reduced significantly by enrolling and retaining students who live in Barberton instead of them open-enrolling elsewhere. How much does Barberton lose due to open enrollment and what have you been doing to improve the open enrollment numbers? A – Currently, open enrollment out to other districts costs Barberton Schools $2.6 million. Open enrollment in brings in $1.5 million from students to Barberton from other districts, which is up from $838,000 in 2010. The resident enrollment has increased in the last two years, which means that fewer Barberton students are enrolling elsewhere. The district believes this is due to the new buildings and the state’s “Excellent” rating. Q – Busing was eliminated within a two-mile radius. How did you decide on a two-mile limit? Have you made any provisions for the grade school student who must walk 1.9 miles in freezing temperatures or a downpour? A – The two-mile busing limit is the state minimum. Districts are required to bus all K-8 students who live two miles or more from school. The district understands that lack of busing is a hardship for many families; so, if the levy passes, we plan to restore the previous policy of busing all K-8 students who live one mile or more from schools.

Osborne leads Magics past Dragons Randy Broadwater Herald Sports Writer The Barberton Magics are off to a 3-2 start on the baseball diamond after a doubleheader sweep of visiting East April 6.

In the seventh inning Osborne put a stop to a four run East rally to earn his first save of the season. Zack Foster (1-0) got the start on the mound for Barberton and picked up the win. Casey Scalf also had a good game at the plate with a single, a double and an RBI. Game two was no contest as the Magics pounded out 11 hits in a 24-5 five-inning mercy-rule win. Barberton led 19-5 by the end of the third after an eight-run outburst in

the frame. Nate Jones (1-0) picked up the win for the Magics.

After battling to a scoreless tie for eight innings, the Rockets put three runs on the board in the eighth off of a 2 RBI single by Rick Delambo and an RBI single by Alex Bison. It looked like Barberton would rally in the bottom of the inning when Solomon Carter led off with a walk, but he was erased from the base paths when Manny Rodriguez hit into a fielders choice. Rodriguez would come home to score though when walks to (See MAGICS, Page 15)

Lady Magics win in rout against Falcons Brian Powell Herald Staff Writer The lady Magics softball team scored runs in four consecutive innings to put away the visiting Firestone Falcons 10-2 April 7. Barberton trailed 2-0 after the Falcons scored twice in the second inning, but took the lead for good after scoring four runs in the third. Barberton improved to 2-1 on the season and the Falcons dropped their first game after winning their opener. Magics starter Macy Kaisk settled down after the second inning and shut down the Falcons to gain her first win of the season. Kaisk also got the Magics offense started with a home run to left field to cut the Falcons lead to 2-1. Courtney James made the Falcons pay in the third inning as she ripped single with the bases loaded to tie the score, Rylee Lappin followed with a RBI single to score the Magics fifth run. Kaisk would strike out two of the next three Falcon batters in the fourth inning, as the Lady Magics sent nine batters to the plate in the bottom of the frame to increase their lead to 9-2.

would setup another RBI single for Kaisk. James would drive home a run as she laced a RBI double to center field for the Magics’ ninth run. “We got off to a slow start but managed to put some nice innings together,” Magics coach Amy Cardenas said. “We need to work on a few things and learn that we need to learn to play from

the first pitch” The Magics final run would come after Morgan Kadilak would walk to start the inning, Rorrer would then double on a 2-1 pitch to score Kadilak to make the score 10-2. Firestone would go down in order in their final chance as Kaisk struck out the side. Barberton would put together 10 runs on 12 hits, and only committed

one error. Firestone only managed five hits off of Kaisk while scoring two runs and committing one error. Kadilak and Kaisk would each score three runs and Kaisk would add three RBIs. Barberton will host Ravenna Thursday, April 11, and then Streetsboro will visit the Magics April 12.

The Norton softball team dropped to 0-3 with a 5-1 loss at Field April 8. The reason for the early season skid is obvious to Norton Coach Dick Castilow.. “We can’t hit the ball,” is how Castilow summed up the team’s problems after a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Falcons in the first PTC-Metro contest of the season. “We’ve had seven hits in three games. Defensively we’re fine and our pitchers have done a good job of keeping us in the games. We just have to start hitting the ball and scoring runs, and one usually isn’t going to do it,” Castilow said. One hit was all Norton managed against Field pitcher Keri Trautman, and that came in the top of the sixth inning; a double to center field by Shawna Way who had come in

off the bench in the fifth. After advancing to third on a passed ball, Way would score the Panthers’ lone run, coming home on the throw to second on a Sarah Brady steal. Brooke Robinson and Kailey Myers were the only other Panthers to reach base, both on walks. Alexis Littlejohn took the loss in the pitching circle for Norton. Littlejohn gave up six hits while striking out three and walking two. The Panthers were well within striking distance until the fourth inning where three base hits resulted in a pair of Falcon runs. Field’s Lee Griffin pretty much put the game away in the fifth when she belted a pitch over the fence in centerfield for a two-run home run. Norton will host Canton McKinley Thursday, April 11 and travel to Firestone for a doubleheader against the Falcons Saturday, April 13 at 1:30 p.m.

Panthers starting pitcher Jackson Buda kept the Ravens (1-1) hitless for five innings and recorded nine strikeouts to earn his first win of the season.

As I was walking around Lake Anna I noticed a sign by the steps on the west side of the gazebo, it reads, “Stay off the steps.� Do they want you to walk on the grass? I don’t get it, the next time at the lake, check it out. I watched the first couple of episodes of Bates Motel on television I didn’t know it was being filmed on the West Side.

Flowering crabapples, the perfect tree for all season interest by Tom Dayton of Dayton Nursery Flowering crabapples have been planted in landscape and tree lawns for years but have a less than desirable reputation as they are known as a messy tree. It used to be that flowering crabapples were plagued by leaf drop from a disease called apple scabwithmessyapplesdropping in fall.Today though things have changed! The crabapple varieties of today are not like their messy ancestors. The trees radiate with the profuse flowers of spring in shades of rose, pink and white that cover the entire tree but then after blooming, these new varieties do not shed leaves in the summer because they are highly resistant to apple scab. The rich green or green-red foliage of summer gives way to bright red, maroon or yellow

fruits in late summer that sometimes hang on the trees in clusters. The fruit adheres to the tree all winter so that it does not drop in fall creating a disaster on the lawn or sidewalk with masses of small apples to deal with for clean up. The all-winter hanging fruits are quite decorative as they contrast well against a snow covered landscape. The brightly colored fruits are also an important food source for birds with robins especially frequenting the tree in late February through March. In mid to late April, the tree’s apples are dried and shriveled causing little or no mess in the yard or on the patio when they fall. Another reason to grow these wonderful flowering trees is that they come in all shapes and sizes from varieties that grow 20 feet x 20 feet to small patio trees that only grow to about 8 feet.

Then there is the easy to grow part. Flowering crabapples are easy to grow in ordinary well-drained soil and are not bothered by severe winter weather or spring frost as are some other flowering trees. In fact, the Cherry Blossom festival should have a name change to the flowering crabapple festival as most of the cherries that died around Lake Anna in the brutal winters of the 1970swerereplacedwiththeever reliable flowering crabapples! Some newer varieties to consider are Purple Prince, Royal Raindrops, Showtime, Coralburst and Lollipop (and yes, it is shaped like a lollipop!) Prolific blooms in spring, handsome clean foliage of summer, colorful non-messy fruits and the easiness of growing make flowering Crabapples the perfect flowering tree for all seasons.

Surround yourself in color!

Big John from Holland Grill will give a live demonstration of America’s Greatest Grill Friday, May 24 at West End Hardware. He will be there all afternoon. Make plans to stop by.

Barberton native releases country album After two years of writing, editing, and rewriting, Barberton native Mark Leach is ready to release his full length album, “With Love From Tennessee.” When asked about his record, Leach said, “I’ve been sitting on a lot of these songs for a while so I’m definitely ready for people to hear them.” The album covers the span of country music party songs, heartfelt story-telling, and true events. Leach recorded the album in Nashville, with Chad Jeffers, a slide guitarist who has worked with Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban among others. “It’s hard to pick my favorite

song off the record. A lot of them have personal meaning to me, and I have a certain amount invested in each track. I feel extremely blessed with the opportunities I’ve been given over the years, the support I’ve received from everyone, and the positive feedback in the songs I’ve released” Leach says. “I think everyone will have a song they can relate to on this record, and I hope to see everyone I know at the release.” The album release parties are April 12 at the Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown and April 13 at Above B’s Country in downtown Barberton.
