Jump Rope for Heart week comes to Avon Lake AVON LAKE By Joe Ostrica

The noise of bouncing feet and ropes whistling through the air will be heard clearly at Avon Lake’s Redwood Elementary School when it hosts its annual Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH) week. On Thursday all third and fourth grade classes will be in the gym for their jumping party during morning sessions, with all kindergarten classes participating in theirs near the end of the school day. The first- and second-graders will jump rope in Friday sessions. Promoting health and fitness with a physical activity like jump roping, JRFH is also a fundraiser –- benefiting the American Heart Association – that Redwood physical education instructor Renee Stuart helped bring to the school 17 years ago. “I was very interested in JRFH, but our school district didn’t allow outside fundraising,” Stuart said. “My desire to jump on board and host this worthwhile fundraiser prompted me to be creative. I asked my principal if we could have PTA sponsor our Jump Rope for Heart event. He was supportive and so was our PTA, and in February of 1995 we hosted our first event.” Each year JRFH has steadily grown, starting out as an after-school fundraiser for second- through fourth-graders that included 75 participants and became a school event for first through fourth-graders that involved 350 jumpers. “Our students excitedly look forward to our jumping parties, which are scheduled in early March each year,” Stu-

art said. “Although all students are encouraged to fundraise, students who choose not to are still able to participate in the event. Individual jumping skills are introduced early in the year, so students feel comfortable and confident when jumping during the event.” Stuart said each year students excitedly await the decoration of the main hallway showcase. Thank-you gifts, photos, posters with heart-healthy facts and acknowledgements of the previous year’s top fundraisers are included in the showcase. “We have had pump-up assemblies that first included demonstration teams from other schools, and for a few years included our own Ropin’ Raccoons, as we were an American Heart Association JRFH demonstration team,” REDWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL’S physical education instructor Stuart said. “We have had wrap-up assemblies, Renee Stuart (left) and fourth-grader Halle Butler-Romweber show the which included recognition of top fundraisers, school’s display case that promotes the Jump Rope for Heart program. staff jumpers and fourth-graders showing off Photo courtesy of Renee Stuart their best stuff. “I have to say that Redwood School is passionate about JRFH. The passion began as I has raised close to $100,000. Stuart said the goal is to break found a way for us to host an event when we were told we the $100,000 barrier this year. couldn’t. Over the years, all buildings in our district, with “Our families are extremely caring and giving,” she said. the exception of our high school, have jumped on board to “Each year, families step up to support this wonderful host either JRFH or Hoops for Heart events. This includes cause. Three years ago we had a family, a first-grader, Jack, four elementary schools, one intermediate school and one and kindergartner, Anna, spearhead a fundraising effort. junior high school.” In the 17 years Redwood has hosted the event, the school


Shoremen end playoff run in overtime loss

Avon’s Corrao competes at state wrestling tournament



By Joe Ostrica

The postseason was a short one for the Avon Lake boys basketball squad. The fourth-seeded Shoremen, who had a first round bye, faced sixthseeded Lorain in the Division I sectional finals at Midview High School Saturday. Despite Avon Lake’s eightpoint lead after three quarters, the Titans rallied to force the game into overtime and eventually defeated the Shoremen 66-59. With Avon Lake winning the battle on the boards – the Shoremen outrebounded the Titans 52-36 – and with Lorain struggling from the free throw line (shooting an abysmal 13for-31 from the charity stripe) it appeared the Shoremen were going to pull out a win and move on to play in the district semifinals. Even after Avon Lake fell behind 1711 after the opening quarter, the Shoremen limited the Titans to just nine points in the second quarter while adding 18 of their own to the scoreboard, taking a 29-26 lead at halftime.

Lakewood St. Edward senior 113-pounder Sal Corrao had high hopes heading into the 76th annual Division I state wrestling tournament at Ohio State’s Value City Arena. Making his state tournament debut this past weekend, Corrao wasn’t projected to qualify for the tournament by’s Josh Lowe. However, he placed third at the Cleveland State District and thought he could place. “I stuck to what my coaches taught me and it’s paid off,” said Corrao following his firstround victory Thursday. “My 16 losses (prior to the state) came to kids ranked in the top three in their state or ranked nationally. I believe I am better than my record indicates.” While his Eagles held off a tough challenge from Massillon Perry (second, 105 points) and Brecksville (third, 99.5) to repeat as the Division I state champions, winning their 28th state title in school history with 117 points, Corrao only was able to contribute one win to that total before he was eliminated on Friday. Corrao began his tournament with a 12-4 major decision over Massillon Jackson’s Justyn Bostic, advancing to the quarterfinal round. Friday morning, Corrao took

However, Ziegler hit a takedown during the oneminute overtime period and earned the 7-5 victory. Ziegler (36-10) wound up placing sixth in the 113-pound weight class. On Friday evening, needing one victory to earn his coveted spot on the podium, Westerville North senior Santino DiSabato proved to be too much for Corrao. DiSabato set the tone early and knocked off Corrao, 7-2, eliminating him from the tournament. Following the loss, an emotional Corrao left the arena without going down to the media room. He was not available for comment the rest of the weekend. Corrao – whose sister Julia finished fourth in the floor exercises at the state gymnastics championships at neighboring St. John Arena last weekend, helping Magnificat finish ninth in the team race – ended his season at 25-18. Corrao continued a string of Avon and Avon Lake-related wrestlers to qualify for the state tournament, going back the last five years. However, he snaps the streak of placement wrestlers at two years following Avon High School’s Zane Zeman taking second in 2011 and third in 2012.

JUMP ROPE, from page B1 Anna had open-heart surgery as a baby and Jack was jumping in honor of Anna. Their family alone raised over $3,000, but their story inspired the rest of Redwood to collect over $12,000. “Our $15,000 grand total was the third highest amount collected in Ohio that year, and Redwood’s highest total ever. We were in the midst of recession, and I was astonished that we were able to collect that much money.” That same year, Stuart said, there was another first-grader, Halle, who wanted to contribute money, but her parents were unable to give. “I remember the morning she brought in her baggie full of change,” Stuart said. “The baggie had $1.73. She wanted so badly to help and found change around her house. We have many families that contribute those smaller amounts that

help us tremendously towards our goal. In second grade, Halle talked her dad into volunteering during her second grade jumping party. He was a great help and enjoyed watching the students work hard, try their best and jump for exercise.” Last year a contest was introduced to persuade students to send more e-mails as part of Redwood’s fundraising efforts. Stuart told the students at an assembly the Redwood staff would jump the total number of e-mails sent. “A total of 583 e-mails were sent,” Stuart said. “Our friend Halle talked her mom into sending 125 of them. I can’t wait to see how Halle contributes to this year’s JRFH event. Halle and her family are one example of the passion that our school community has for JRFH and how it impacts their lives. “We have had many families, staff and students contribute in so many ways to our annual JRFH events. They volunteer their time, talents and support year after year.

THE HOLY TRINITY Division 2 eighth-grade boys had a strong 14-7 season, capturing first place at the Holy Trinity Candy Cane Tournament and finishing a runner-up at the St. Edward LCA Shootout. The team includes (L-R) Coach Frank Sulen, Bennett Sulen, Joey Brady, Joey Pompeani, Mason Hammerschmidt, Herm Wearsch, Joey Malinak, Ethan Hammerschmidt, Michael Boehm, Parker Ripich, John Laws and coach Bob Malinak.

The staff at our school will help with whatever I ask. The PTA board has a position dedicated to JRFH. This person helps recruit and contact volunteers and attends each event.” This year’s incentive to get more students involved is the toilet paper wrap. Classes that have the highest percentage of students secure donations will get a chance to wrap staff members in toilet paper at a spirit assembly. Classes can either choose to wrap their own teacher or a combination of special’s teachers. The top 10 fundraisers also get to wrap Principal Ebert. “I am very proud to be a member of the Redwood Elementary School staff and event coordinator for JRFH,” Stuart said. “Each JRFH banner that is proudly hung in

our school gymnasium reminds us of the benefits of living a healthy, active lifestyle. We are proud to be involved. “I want to thank the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) Joint Projects Committee for the opportunity to apply for this grant. Also thank you to AAHPERD and the American Heart Association for the opportunity to reach out to others as well as learn about the importance of living healthy, active lives.” To find out more about the JRFH program, visit For anyone interested in donating to the cause, contact Redwood Elementary School at 440-933-5145.

We are pleased to report that we were able to reach this goal at our Charity Ball on January 26th. We would like to thank an anonymous donor and the Cleveland Cavaliers for helping us surpass our goal and raise $9,200.00 to match the Community Foundation of Lorain Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge.

Winter IAQ Alert:


Getting Comfy Cozy in Bad Indoor Air ortheast Ohio, 3/6/13 – In winter, folks in Avon are spending more time indoors staying warm. But that comfy cozy feeling could be coming at a cost, according to Brian Stack of Stack Heating & Cooling. “Think of all of the things happening inside your home,” Brian said. “You’ve got a fire going; the heat is on, a pot of chili on the stove. You brought the dogs in because it’s too cold outside. Maybe you’re spending time on some hobbies – using glue gun or painting. Not only that, if your family has had colds or the flu, you’ve got germs. Everything that is taking place has the potential to compromise the quality of your indoor air.” With the energy-efficient building practices common today, homes are designed to be airtight. In wintertime, homes may be even more tightly sealed to keep out drafts. That means pollutants entering a home through ordinary activities often stay in the home, only to be breathed in by the family. The EPA points to a variety of sources for indoor air pollution, including:

Avon lake Kiwanis Club proudly sponsors the following Avon lake school organizations:

• Combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wool and tobacco products • Building materials and furnishings, including cabinetry or furniture made of pressed wood • Products for household cleaning, personal care or hobbies • Central heating and cooling systems • Outdoor sources such as radon and pesticides • Animal dander from pets, which can aggravate allergies and asthma “Carbon monoxide poisoning can be a very serious concern in wintertime,” Brian added. This odorless, colorless and toxic gas can be produced by faulty gas furnaces and water heaters, among other combustion sources. “You do not want this gas in your home undetected.” For peace of mind on any of these pollutants, Brian recommends that homeowners have a professional look at the air they’re breathing.

POLICE BLOTTERS daughter acting suspiciously, ducking behind the car and loading up a cartful of items before driving off. Loss prevention officials at the store were contacted; after reviewing the tapes they determined the two had indeed stolen a lot of merchandise. The vehicle was stopped along I-90 and an arrest was made in the matter.

AVON By D M Warnke

Double dipping Officers on routine patrol made a stop just past Healthway Drive along Detroit Feb. 27. It turned out the plates on the vehicle were expired, so the owner was cited in the matter.


Waaay lost

Repossession officials called in Feb. 27 to report they were taking a vehicle from an Avon Belden Road address. The matter ended up being handled without incident.

A cell call came in about a vehicle traveling along Detroit Road just outside the police station at 5 mph at 4:59 a.m. last week. The driver turned around in the police station lot, and then headed the other direction just as slowly. Officers stopped the car and found an elderly woman who was looking for her hairdresserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because she had an 8 a.m. appointment. She was advised to get back home to Rocky River at normal speeds and come back a little closer to her appointment time.

That takes onions, my friend Officials at a Detroit Road business called in to report an attempted scam when a caller requested funds for a Lorain Police Department fundraiser. A quick check revealed the fraud, and the callerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information was forwarded to police in Lorain for follow-up and possible charges.

Nabbed Fairview Park police called in to report having a man wanted on warrant in custody last week. The subject was picked up and processed without incident.

Overkill A Lorain woman called in to report her ex-husband, who was in a nursing home, had been scammed into giving his debit card to a woman who had gone on a spending spree. One of the stores the woman shopped at was in Avon, but the event occurred in Sheffield Lake and had already been reported there, so an extra report was not necessary.

Sleepy time

Saving the day The rescue squad was dispatched when a 60-year-old man fell into possible full arrest. He was stabilized at the scene and transported to emergency care.

Where is my stuff? A Lear Road resident came to the station to report a theft. The subject was advised on courses of action in the matter and a report filed for insurance purposes.

Yeesh The daughter of an Armour Road resident called in to report receiving a suspicious call from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;FBIâ&#x20AC;? last week, then at 8 p.m. a man knocked on the door looking for landscaping work. She requested extra patrols in the area.

Missed meetings A Cranberry Court woman came to the station to report that the father of her child did not appear on time for his visitation exchange. The woman waited for 30 minutes before filing the report. A short while later, a S. Point Drive woman came to the station for advice in dealing with her childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father. All parties were advised in civil matters.

To the side A report came in about a disabled van in the westbound lanes of Walker Road near Lear. It turned out the driver had run out of fuel and help was on the way.


Bad timing

Fire department officials were sent to a Lynne Drive address when a fire alarm went off. The matter was put under control in a brief

Be aware of risks of not investing You’ve no doubt heard about the risks associated with investing. This investment carries this type of risk, while that investment carries another one. And it is certainly true that all investments do involve some form of risk. But what about not investing? Isn’t there some risk associated with that, too? In fact, by staying on the investment sidelines, or at least by avoiding long-term, growth-oriented investments, you may incur several risks. Here are some to consider: You might not keep up with inflation. If you put all your money under the proverbial “mattress,” or, more realistically, you keep it all in “cash” instruments and very short-term investments, you might think you are “playing it safe.” After all, you might reason, your principal is protected, so even if you don’t really make any money, you’re not losing it, either. But that’s not strictly true, because if your money is in investment vehicles that don’t even keep up with inflation, you can lose ground. In fact, even at a relatively mild three percent annual inflation rate, your purchasing power will decline by about half in just 25 years. You might outlive your money. For a 65-year-old couple, there’s a 50 percent chance that one spouse


BOB BROOKS, AAMS will live past age 90, according to the Society of Actuaries. This statistic suggests that you may need your investments to help provide enough income to sustain you for two, or even three, decades in retirement. You might not be able to maintain your financial independence. Even if you don’t totally run out of money, you could end up scrimping by – or, even worse, you could become somewhat dependent on your grown children for financial assistance. For most people, this prospect is unacceptable. Consequently, you’ll want to make appropriate financial decisions to help maintain your financial independence. You might not be able to retire on your terms. You would probably like to decide when you retire and

how you’ll retire – that is, what sort of lifestyle you’ll pursue during retirement. But both these choices may be taken out of your hands if you haven’t invested enough to retire on your own terms. You might not be able to leave the type of legacy you desire. Like most people, you would probably like to be able to leave something behind to your family and to those charitable organizations you support. You can help create this type of legacy through the appropriate legal vehicles — i.e., a will, a living trust and so on, but you’ll still need to fund these mechanisms somehow. And that means you’ll need to draw on all your financial assets, including your investments. Work with your financial advisor to determine the mixture of growth and income investments you need during your working years and as you move toward retirement to help you meet your retirement goals. However you do it, get into the habit of investing, and never lose it — because the risks of not investing are just too great.

Trulia predicts the best housing markets for 2013 In the past 12 months, home prices have skyrocketed in some major U.S. cities. In Phoenix, according to real estate information site Trulia, asking home prices increased by 26.9 precent between November 2011 and November 2012. Of course, that is after home prices in the area plummeted by more than 50 percent peak-totrough between 2006 and 2009. A new report released by Trulia points out that just because home values are rising rapidly in certain area does not mean these markets are healthy. Trulia is predicting the best housing markets for 2013 in the country is based on what Trulia identifies as the three fundamental characteristics of a healthy housing market: strong job growth; low vacancy rates; and low foreclosure inventory. Trulia economist Jed Kolko explained that while housing markets have improved in the last year many of the increases are rebounds following big declines in home values. As a result, markets with the biggest price increases are some of the boom and bust markets including Phoenix, Las Vegas, Miami and Detroit. Housing prices in these places increased significantly, year over year. Employment growth is an important measure for housing demand. “When people have jobs, they are able to spend more on renting or buying, and they are more

KEN KODGER likely to buy,” Kolko said. The 10 metro areas projected to be the healthiest in 2013 have among the highest job growth in the U.S. All 10 are within the top 20 percent for job growth, primarily benefiting from vibrant technology and energy sectors. In Houston, projected to be one of best housing markets for 2013, employment grew by 3.6 percent between October 2011 and October 2012 – the largest job growth of any major metro region. Having low vacancy rates is also important to the long-term health of these markets. “High vacancy rates hold back price increases, they hold back construction, they hold back the recovery,” Kolko explained. A lower vacancy rate, while better for the health of the market, should not be too low, as extremely low vacancy constricts availability and drives up prices too much. All 10 of these markets have a vacancy rate below the average

of 3.4 percent among the 100 largest metropolitan areas. Finally, these places have low foreclosure inventory. Places with low foreclosure inventory had less severe declines during the recession. Of the 10 healthiest housing markets for 2013, few had severe declines, peak-totrough, in home value. Because of this, there are fewer homes on the market that had been foreclosed. In these cities, rising home prices can be more fairly said to be the result of a growing market rather than the result of depressed prices due to the market being flooded with foreclosed homes. To learn which are the 10 best go to: None of the top 10 is in Ohio. Ohio and our market area probably represent, as we discussed extensively in our 2-20-13 article, a very average area in the USA. Our recovery will not be remarkable but neither was our last six years. Just as a final note, we reported 2-13-13 that our market area “for sale” inventory at the beginning of this year was the lowest it has been since 1998. That has dramatically changed as the current market inventory is now 60 percent higher. So our market area is no longer in the category of having too few homes for sale!

Burton returns to his roots with clever ‘Frankenweenie’ By Joe Ostrica

Quirky fantasy maestro Tim Burton returns to his roots in more ways than one with his latest project, “Frankenweenie,” which was recently released on Blu-ray and DVD. Released last fall to disappointing box office receipts but great critical raves, “Frankenweenie”

was recently nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. Burton, who started out as an animator at Walt Disney early in his career, returned to the studio to expand his 1984 live action short film “Frankenweenie” into a stop motion animation feature. The story is still the same: a young boy brokenhearted over the death of his

VICTOR RESURRECTS HIS beloved pet, Sparky, in “Frankenweenie.” Photo courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures

beloved pet dog, Sparky, decides to play Dr. Frankenstein and attempt to resurrect his dog. His experiment is a success, but the neighbors and his family are freaked out by the zombie pooch. Burton and frequent screenwriter collaborator John August expanded Leonard Ripps’ original script by expanding the story of young Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan) and his passion for science and his dog, Sparky. The basic story of Sparky being killed after being hit by a car and being buried in a pet cemetery remains. But the story is expanded by including a rivalry between Victor and his classmates who are hellbent on winning the annual science fair. Burton also creates a big monster mashup that occurs at a town carnival that should please fans of the Universal horror classics as well as scifi and B-movies from the ‘50s. Fans of Burton’s earlier films and his style will get a kick out of the numerous references that pop up in “Frankenweenie.” Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara, who both worked with Burton on “Beetlejuice,” provide voices in the film. The town Victor and his family lives in looks identical to the one feature in Burton’s “Edward Scissorhands.” A science teacher who looks a lot like the iconic Vincent Price, an idol of Burton’s who also appeared in “Edward Scissorhands.” Martin Landau, who won an Oscar playing “Dracula” actor Bella Lugosi in Burton’s “Ed

“Frankenweenie” Runnning Time: 87 min. Rated: PG Grade: B+ Wood,” provides the voice of the science teacher. Burton’s love of old school horror films is featured cleverly throughout the film, including Victor’s next-door neighbor’s name Elsa Van Helsing, a reference to Van Helsing of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” and Elsa, the original “Bride Of Frankenstein.” A turtle buried in the pet cemetery is named Shelley, a nod to “Frankenstein” author Mary Shelley. This turtle is resurrected and eventually grows into a huge Godzilla-like creature. Fans of Burton’s work or old school horror films and creature features should be pleased with “Frankenweenie.” Shot in glorious black and white with clever animation, cute humor and told in a neat quirky style, it’s a film adults can enjoy and appreciate as much, if not more, than children.
