Brookside’s Camp signs to play football at Wooster SHEFFIELD VILLAGE / SHEFFIELD LAKE By John Edwards
Brookside High School senior Tom Camp, a first team All-Lorain County offensive lineman who also garnered second team All-Patriot Athletic Conference and All-Northeast District honors as a linebacker, signed his letter of intent on May 10 to play football for The College of Wooster next year. Camp, a National Honor Society member who also won PAC scholar-athlete awards and was the Cardinals’ co-captain, said he’d chosen to become a Fighting Scot after narrowing his choices to Wooster, Oberlin and Baldwin Wallace. “Wooster, Oberlin and BW are all good schools, but I was most comfortable when I visited Wooster,” Camp said. “I really like the coaches there and I think I’ll fit in well. I can play all the offensive line positions, but it looks now like I’m going to play guard. I’m still undecided as to what my major will be, but I think it will either be social science or pre-med.” Tom’s parents, Jeff and Jill Camp, and his grandparents attended the signing ceremony in the Brookside library, along with Brookside athletics director Dick Kerschbaum, head coach Tom Lesiecki and dozens of his teammates. Tom’s choice to play his college football at Wooster was bittersweet for his father, an Oberlin alumnus and former Yeoman football player. But Jeff showed support for Tom’s decision by attending the signing wearing a Wooster T-shirt and cap. “Tom was an outstanding performer for our football team,” Kerschbaum said. “He dramatically improved himself over the last two seasons. Tom is an exceptional student in the classroom and, coupled with his drive as an athlete, that will make him a major asset to The College of Wooster next fall.”

Cardinals find bright spots at Vermilion Invitational SHEFFIELD/SHEFFIELD LAKE By Dan Gilles
The Brookside Cardinals boys and girls did decently at the annual Vermilion Track and Field Invitational, which was held last Friday despite rainstorms both in the afternoon and late evening that delayed action for an hour and a half. Senior Jessica Sarvas was Brookside’s lone individual winner in either gender. Sarvas claimed the shot put title with a throw of 32-11, leading her Cardinals to a fourthplace finish in the 15-team event with 55 points. The Brookside boys finished 11th out of 15 teams with just seven points, scoring the fewest number of points among teams that actually had athletes finish in the top eight in their events. The thunderstorm to start the day caused a reshuffling of events. Of the field events, only the shot put and high jump were held, and what was supposed to be preliminaries were scrapped and all heats were held as the finals. “We had a pretty decent day,” Brookside girls coach Claire DeChant said. “We’re missing one of our seniors, so we had to change some things up on the team. We did well with our 4x100 and 4x200 (relays). Tyller (Holley) did well in the 100 and 200 and Shyanne (Pierce) placed in the top four in the 400. “Jessica won the shot and Ally (Behrendt) had a great day as well, despite not being able to compete in all the (field) events.” Sarvas was surprised that the event even took place. “It was two feet under my personal record, but it was really wet and freezing when we went back out there,” Sarvas said. “I didn’t really get to warm up that much. Before we even left the school, I thought for sure they were going to cancel it. So the fact that we were able to compete, and with the weather eventually clearing up, was an added bonus. “I expected us to do a little bit better, but since it’s rainy and cold and everyone’s still a little tight and freezing, I can
be happy with (fourth). Hopefully, we can finish higher next week.” Behrendt finished sixth in the shot put with a toss of 305. Holley, a sophomore, finished third in the 100 dash behind winner and event MVP AuBree LaForce of Vermilion and North Ridgeville’s Morgan Dwulat with a time of 13.17 seconds. She also placed fifth in the high jump with a leap of 4-3 and fifth in the 200 dash with a time of 28.18 seconds. The team of freshman Nicole Harvel, sophomore Olivia Eyring, sophomore Pierce and sophomore Cheyenne Danchisen finished second in the 400 relay behind Vermilion with a time of 52.77 seconds. Pierce finished fourth in the 400 dash with a time of 1:05.83. “This was the first time Cheyenne anchored the 4x1, so I was very pleased with that performance,” DeChant said. The team of freshman Isabel Johnson, junior Emilee Gil, junior Katy Ackerman and senior Gabby Woods finished fourth in the 3200 relay with a time of 12:00.8. Also, the team of freshman Katlyn Brooks, Eyring, Ackerman and Pierce finished fourth in the 1600 relay with a time of 4:50.73, capping a solid day from the Cardinal relay teams. “We’re looking for good things next week (at the Patriot Athletic Conference championships),” DeChant said. “We’re looking to get some more good times and put a lot of points on the board and set some school records. It will be awesome. “We’ve had a phenomenal season. The girls have really stepped up and really wanted to improve, both individually and as a team. It’s nice to kind of sit back as a coach and watch it fall into place for them. It’s very rewarding.” On the boys side, the Cardinals top scorer and finisher was sophomore Creighton Jansen, who finished third in the 3200 run with a time of 10:39.52. Jansen also ran the opening leg of the 3200 relay, which finished in eighth place with a time of 9:29.63. Also making up that team were sophomore James Woods, freshman Justin Raynak and senior Nick Brenneman.
“Creighton Jansen’s doing well in the distance for us,” Brookside boys track coach Tony Brown said. “He and Justin Raynak and Nick Brenneman and James Woods have given us a lot of hope for the future. It’s nice to see those underclass kids getting their moxie together.” Until the 3200 run, that eighth-place relay team was the only point the Cardinals had scored. However, boys track coach Tony Brown continues to see positives from his team’s performances this year. “This season is actually an uncanny season, I’d say,” he said. “We didn’t have a lot of high expectations. Quite a few kids that ran for us in the past decided to make football their one sport, which is fine because I love football. But the kids that did come out were shockers. “Brian Tran, our long jumper, came out and had never ran track at Brookside, and he’s jumping 19-11. Jeremiah Edwards, who was only jumping 14-0 when he came out, is now jumping 17-8. Brandon Kmitt did well in the high jump and he led us to a first-place finish in the high jump relay at Fairview last month. “The season has had its ups and downs, peaks and valleys, if you will. You wish those kids that didn’t come out went out, but if they did, they wouldn’t allow those young kids to shine.” Brown also singled out freshmen Josh Adkins and Max Wilson in the pole vault, a new event for the Cardinals this year with Ray Ratino serving as the coach. The pole vault was one of the field events scrapped because of the rain delay at the Vermilion Invite. “I coached at Admiral King, where we had nothing but fast kids and athletes,” Brown said, “but I’ve had the most fun coaching track this year coaching these kids than I’ve had in a number of years. Those (King) kids wanted to do well, but these kids that don’t have that kind of ability but have the gumption to go further, have gone further. “As a coach, that’s what you coach for. You coach for the kid that wants to get better and wants to be taught, and when you see that kid improve and get better, it shows that everything you’ve taught them has come to fruition. That’s what it’s all about, ultimately.”

Two teams to be inducted into sports hall of fame AVON L AKE By Joe Ostrica

Study up on college savings vehicles Another school year is drawing to a close, so if you have young children, they’re one year closer to the day when they head off to college. And both you and your children need to prepare for that day. Your kids can do so by developing good study habits. As for you, it’s never too soon to start preparing for the high costs of higher education. Just how costly is college? According to the College Board’s figures for the 2012-13 academic year, the average cost for one year at an in-state four-year public school is $22,261; for a private school, the comparable expense is $43,289. And if college costs continue rising faster than the general inflation rate, these figures will increase substantially in the years ahead. Of course, it’s entirely possible that your kids will receive some scholarships or grants, which can significantly lower your out-of-pocket price tag. Nonetheless, it’s probably a good idea not to count on your offspring getting a “full ride” to school, which means that you may want to start exploring college-savings vehicles. Fortunately, you have some attractive options, one of which is a 529 plan. When you contribute to a 529 plan, your earnings accumulate tax free, provided they are used for qualified higher education expenses. (Keep in mind, though, that
FINANCIAL FOCUS Reported By
BOB BROOKS, AAMS 529 plan distributions not used for qualified expenses may be subject to federal and state income tax and a 10 percent IRS penalty.) Furthermore, your 529 plan contributions may be deductible from your state taxes. However, 529 plans vary, so be sure to check with your tax advisor regarding deductibility. A 529 plan offers other benefits, too. For one thing, the lifetime contribution limits for 529 plans are quite generous; while these limits vary by state, some plans allow contributions well in excess of $200,000. Plus, a 529 plan is flexible: if your child, grandchild or other beneficiary decides against college or vocational school, you can transfer the unused funds to another family member, tax and penalty free. While a 529 plan may be a good choice for building
resources for college, it’s certainly not the only choice. For example, a Coverdell Education Savings Account, like a 529 plan, can generate tax-free earnings if the money is used for higher education expenses. However, you can typically only put in a maximum of $2,000 per year to a Coverdell account. Another college-savings possibility is a custodial account, known as an UGMA or UTMA, which offers some tax benefits, no contribution limits, and may have an impact on financial aid. You might also consider investing in a zero-coupon bond that matures just when your child is ready for college. Unlike other bonds, you won’t receive regular interest payments with a zero-coupon bond, but you purchase it at a deep discount, so you might find the affordability factor to be worth considering. (Be aware, though, that even though you don’t actually receive the interest payments annually, you’ll still be liable for the taxes on them, so before purchasing a zero coupon bond, consult with your tax advisor). Whichever college-savings vehicles you choose, try to put them to work as early as you can. Before you know it, today’s first-graders will be tomorrow’s college freshmen. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by Bob Brooks, your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.
Fannie and Freddie to limit loans to ‘qualified mortgages” On May 6 mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced they will begin next year to purchase only loans that meet new “qualified mortgage” requirements. In January, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau finalized new rules that would require lenders to verify borrowers’ ability to repay their loans. It capped loan terms and fees and the bureau said that “qualified” mortgages are borrowers whose debt does not exceed 43 percent of their income. The requirements are to go into effect January 2014. The FHFA, which regulates Fannie and Freddie, said in a statement, “Adoption of these new limitations by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is in keeping with the FHFA’s goal of gradually contracting their market footprint and protecting borrowers and taxpayers.” The two mortgage giants, which do not issue loans, provide financing to banks and other lenders by purchasing mortgages that are often repackaged as securities that are sold to investors. Fannie and Freddie back about half of all home loans. Following the 2007-2009 financial crisis, the DoddFrank law created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which have issued rules that would force lenders to make sure borrowers could pay back loans to avoid the steep losses that banks experienced before.

KEN KODGER Part of those guidelines will affect retirees as they look to obtain a home loan. They may find that solid retirement accounts and a sterling credit rating are not enough as lenders are increasingly looking for a consistent monthly income in line with the new debt-to-income standards. When looking at dividends, most lenders want to see a regular annual amount on the tax return paid out over at least the past couple of years. In terms of part-time employment, borrowers need to prove they are actually working at the moment of application. In some cases, a two-year work history is required. Social Security income is always counted, of course. Borrowers, though, need to be informed that current Fannie Mae guidelines permit lenders to increase that income by 25 percent if the beneficiary is not paying taxes on it. A handful of portfolio lenders are still issuing loans without verifying income. However, their interest rates are

higher, as are their down payment requirements, in the range of 30 to 40 percent. There is continuing good housing news. As the economy and employment gradually are on the mend and home prices rise, more home owners are keeping up with their mortgage payments. Delinquencies on home loans dropped in March to 0.84 percent of the nation’s 50.2 million mortgages – the first month since 2007 that delinquencies were below the 1 percent mark as reported by Lender Processing Services Inc. First-time defaults peaked in January 2009 at 2.89 percent. Home loans at least 30 days delinquent or in foreclosure dropped to 5 million in March. In January 2010, delinquent loans for at least 30 days peaked at 7.7 million, LPS reports. Mortgage default rates are highest among underwater borrowers, those who owe more on their home than it is currently valued. Four percent of borrowers have defaulted on their loans that owe at least 50 percent or more on their home, compared with 0.6 percent of home owners with equity, according to LPS. More homeowners are seeing equity once again in their homes, as prices rise. The number of mortgages with negative equity dropped to 18 percent of homes with a mortgage in January, down from 41 percent one year earlier.

Summer movie season brings superstars to the forefront THAT IS JOHNNY Depp as Tonto under that makeup in “The Lone Ranger.” Photo courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures
By Joe Ostrica
With May being the month of sequels (“Iron Man 3,” “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” “The Hangover Part III” and “Fast & Furious 6”) and June being the month of big movie stars (Will Smith, Vince Vaughn,
Summer 2013 Movie Preview (Part 3) James Franco, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock), there’s still plenty of room for both in July and August. Below are some of the bigger titles you can expect to see at your local cinema later this summer. Note: Release dates are subject to change. “The Lone Ranger” – Johnny Depp reteams with his “Pirates of the Caribbean” producer (Jerry Bruckheimer) and director (Gore Verbinski) in this reboot of the Western classic masked hero and his Indian partner Tonto. But Depp is not playing the titular character, rather going for a surreal disguise (and likely humorous interpretation) as Tonto, who Depp claims is nobody’s sidekick. Armie Hammer, who is a virtual unknown to co-headline a franchise film like this, will play the Lone Ranger. (July 3) “Pacific Rim” – While this film looks like it has blockbuster potential all over it, with giant robots (operated by humans who control them from the inside) battling giant

monsters to save Earth, it’s the director attached who has me excited to check this one out. Visual virtuoso Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) is at the helm of this flick, which is his first in more than five years since he left “At the Mountains of Madness” and “The Hobbit” when studios delayed those productions. It will be fun to see del Toro’s return to the big screen with a big-budgeted summer spectacle. (July 12) “The Wolverine” – After getting his own spin-off movie with “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” the Hugh Jackman vehicle was a big disappointment to fans of the warrior character who has enormous claws for
weapons. With James Mangold (“3:10 to Yuma” and “Walk the Line”) directing this sequel, and with Wolverine fighting the Yakuza and ninjas in Japan, this one looks like it’s going to be much better than the previous installment. (July 26) “2 Guns” – Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington pair up in what could be an action comedy hit for the two leading men. Washington’s DEA agent pairs up with Wahlberg’s Naval Intelligence officer to pull off a heist in which they will steal $43 million that belongs to a drug cartel. Expect the unlikely buddy cop routine here, but with two strong leads going head to head, it could be a lot of fun. Expect lots of explosions and gunplay, too. (Aug. 2) “Elysium” – Forget the confusing title (and good luck on how to pronounce it), all you need to know is it’s the second film from director Neill Blomkamp (“District 9”) and stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, the star of Blomkamp’s career-launching debut. It’s a sci-fi epic that takes place in the future, and you can expect plenty of thrills, visual effects and some thought-provoking subject matter along the way. (Aug. 9)
