Main Street Amherst

Come Help Us Grow! In an effort to preserve Amherst’s heritage, the city was pleased to receive the designation of Main Street Amherst in 2002. Main Street Amherst is a 501c3 non-profit

organization whose mission is to promote and maintain an economically vital historic downtown and business district that is attractive and accessible to people of all ages. The city received the designation from Heritage Ohio, Inc. a statewide, not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and assisting people and organizations to protect and preserve the heritage. The Main Street program has earned national recognition as a practical strategy appropriately scaled to a community’s local resources and conditions. And because it is a locally driven program, all initiative stems from local issues and concerns. Main Street Amherst volunteers are striving to bring special events to the downtown and surrounding area to increase public awareness of what goods and services are available to the general public. Our motto has become “Come Help Us Grow”. Come to Amherst and experience the quaint small-town feeling of a community that cares about its economic growth. Make Amherst your next destination!

The Main Street Amherst Endowment Fund was established in 2015 to provide a medium through which people may provide permanent, financial gifts that will assist in supporting the future of the organization. The principal of these gifts is held in perpetuity and the investment income made available as needed. The earnings from these gifts may be used for operating expenses, to maintain the facilities, and to fund scholarships. Please visit our website at www.mainstreetamherst.org.

Philosophy, foreign language and social studies courses help to expand students’ world view. College-level courses in calculus, physics, and chemistry hone problemsolving and research skills. As a result, we find accomplished Amherst alumni in a wide variety of fields, some entering the military or public service, others finding their way in business, healthcare and higher education. We reinforce the importance of good character, sportsmanship, and service through both academic and extracurricular programs. Our Comet P.R.I.D.E. programs at Powers and Harris cheer students who treat others with kindness and respect. Our staff incorporate service-learning in class and building-wide, guiding students as they raise money, collect items, and volunteer their time for a number of local and global causes. Our athletic coaches encourage students to band together in good sportsmanship and character whether their final scoreboards show a win or a loss. We offer students opportunities at all ages to work with new technology and get the hands-on learning that will make their lessons stick. Our youngest learners are learning how to type while they learn their ABC’s. Nord Middle School students have learned to code tiny robots and compete successfully against their peers.

has supported countless important projects over the years to expand opportunities for Amherst students. Most notably, the Foundation gave $200,000 last year to help the district renovate Steele High School’s media center into the Creative Learning Center that shares its name. According to Superintendent Sayers, the CLC has been used more in the last seven months than the original space had been used in the last ten years! Older classes often use the space to collaborate on group and multi-media projects. Younger classes use the CLC to access concepts beyond their classrooms. Our Kindergarteners recently used the presentation space to video chat with a park ranger from Yosemite National Park. The Foundation has also awarded tens of thousands in scholarships to graduating seniors over the years. If you would like to donate to support the Amherst Schools Education Foundation’s outstanding work, please visit the Community Foundation of Lorain County at www.peoplewhocare.org/funds and type "Amherst" in the Keyword section of the donation tool bar.

nyone who’s bought a home knows the complexity of the mortgage process – stacks of papers to sign, long lists of fees and the seemingly endless waiting period for approval. But John Korinko and his partners at American Eagle Mortgage are out to change all that for local home buyers. Unlike many banks or mortgage brokers, American Eagle approves its own loans locally – from more than 200 different programs including FHA, VA, USDA and Fannie Mae – which eliminates the middle man. “This creates faster turnaround times and reduced rates for our customers,” says Korinko. “This combined with our consistent, high quality service guarantees that our customers leave satisfied.” That customer satisfaction is evidenced by American Eagle’s top lender ranking with the Ohio Housing Finance Agency. “We plan on maintaining this recognition by continuing to keep customer satisfaction our top priority,” Korinko says.

Tim and Terri Kiedrowski’s four sons -- Matt, Mark, Michael and Timmee -- sometimes slept on flour sacks while their mom and dad worked in the mid to late 1980’s. There was a playpen in the back of the downtown Amherst store to entertain the boys until they were old enough to work. Throughout the years, the bakery has served the Cleveland area from professional sports teams to the RNC (with Presidential Picture Cookies). In 2011, Kiedrowski’s Bakery was named “The Best Bakery in America” by Baking Buyer Magazine, The Baking Channel and Dawn Foods. Kiedrowski’s won by a landslide, earning over 50% of the votes across 10,000 Bakeries. Votes came from not only the USA, but also Canada, Germany, Iraq and Afghanistan. Owners Terri & Tim Kiedrowski

Health & Wellness

UH Amherst Health Center UH Amherst Health Center has been a landmark in the heart of the City of Amherst for more than 100 years. As the health care tide changed over the decades, so has this legacy institution. It was purchased in 1994 by Elyria Memorial Hospital and continued serving the area as a 60- bed hospital housing inpatients, performing surgeries and treating emergency patients. Then, in 2014 when EMH Regional Medical Center became UH Elyria Medical Center, UH Amherst Health Center continued caring for the community with a

full-service 24/7 emergency room, imaging services and a walk-in lab. On Saturday, August 12, 2017, the second annual UH Health & Safety Fair will be held on the grounds of UH Amherst Health Center. The event will offer free health screenings, fire and police vehicles on display, food, and fun for the kids with an inflatable slide and a face painter. The hours are 9 a.m. to noon and there is no cost to attend. Join us at 254 Cleveland Street for a fun, family-friendly event.

Should your Dog get the Bordetella Vaccine? Absolutely! It is a common misconception that only dogs going to a boarding or grooming facility need this vaccine. The bordetella vaccine helps prevent against Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease (CIRD). This is an extremely contagious airborne respiratory disease in dogs. CIRD can become serious and even lead to pneumonia if left untreated. Any dog can contract this disease even in its own back yard, however the most susceptible places are those where dogs congregate, such as boarding kennels, (hence the term kennel cough). Keep in mind that no vaccine is 100%, however if your dog was to receive the Bordetella vaccine and still contract the disease, his or her symptoms would be less severe than an unvaccinated dog. Stop in and see Dr. Mark or Dr. Kristin at Amherst Animal Hospital or call them at 440-282-5220 for all of your veterinary needs!

Howard Hanna Helps you Stage for Success

A

Howard Hanna knows that staging your home is a key component in the selling process because it gives sellers the opportunity to highlight features of their home. While staging services can range in cost, they help increase home value by adding to the selling price. According to a poll by AOL Money and Finance, 87 percent of buyers indicated that presentation makes a world of difference in most sales.

dd a bit of bling: let your home shine with a touch of gold or silver. A few eye-catching items add an interesting visual element to any room.

Make a difference in the sale of your home with these staging tips from Howard Hanna:

lean, clean, clean! A clean home is much more appealing to buyers. Dust light fixtures, vacuum carpets, polish hardwood

e-clutter/de-personalize: buyers need to be able to see themselves in your home. Hide or remove personal items and then when you’re ready to move they’ll already be packed away!

Staged homes sell faster, per Barb Schwarz, the president of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP). Homes staged by IAHSP are on the market for an average of 29 days or less, compared to 145 days for unstaged homes. Your Howard Hanna agent can help advise you on whether to invest in a stager, or do it yourself. When listing your home with Howard Hanna, consider making the extra investment in home staging!

Lorain Lighthouse Shines Bright at 100 The Lorain West Breakwater Lighthouse

celebrated her 100th Birthday on June 30, 2017 and she’s never shone brighter! The lighthouse, lovingly referred to by locals as the Jewel of the Port®, has been a welcoming beacon in the Lorain Harbor for nearly a century, capturing the hearts of Northcoast residents and visitors alike. Her history is as dazzling as the light herself: construction on Lorain’s jewel began in 1917, and she was staffed by National Lighthouse Keepers until the US Coast Guard took over in 1939. When the lighthouse was scheduled for demolition in 1965, a campaign to save the lighthouse began. Eventually, the lighthouse became the property of the Lorain Lighthouse Foundation, whose dedicated volunteers continue to maintain her today. This year, on June 30th, the lighthouse was named as a Lorain County Landmark. Upcoming centennial festivities include informative guided tours, captivating Sunset Wine Dinner Tours, and an Independence Day Picnic at the lighthouse complete with fireworks display! More information on these and other lighthouse events may be found at www.lorainlighthouse.com.
