Pinwheels for Prevention

DANBURY SCHOOLS

Staff edges students in 1-point win Basketball game brings in money for programs

Three hundred and twenty pinwheels stuck in the courthouse lawn represent each report of child abuse and neglect in Ottawa County in 2009.

Program reminds residents child abuse happens everywhere Three hundred and twenty sparkling blue and silver pinwheels were stuck in the Ottawa County Courthouse lawn last week — one for every report of child abuse or neglect in the county in 2009. The project, called Pinwheels for Prevention, is an annual effort to keep residents informed. “The whole purpose of the campaign is to make communities aware that child abuse

happens close to home,” said Stephanie Kowal, director of the Ottawa County Department of Job and Family Services. Calls in 2009 were up from 2008 (290 calls) and more than double 2007 (140 calls). Kowal points out that more calls doesn’t necessarily mean more abuse, just more reports which she says could mean the awareness campaign is working.

“If you see something, report it. Everyone of those means someone called and reported something,” she said. Pinwheels were also placed outside the DJFS and North Point Education Center in conjunction by the Child Assault Prevention Program through Port Clinton City Schools. The Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office provides the sign and the pinwheels.

By ROBERTA REDFERN The annual Danbury School staff/student basketball battle last weekend came down to an exciting 3-point skirimish, followed by a foul-shooting frenzy. When the dust cleared and the clock ran out, the teachers had eked it out by a point — keeping their title for at least another year. The final score of the game, in its second year, was 74-73. Last year’s inaugural event ended with the teachers pulling it off in a slightly easier fashion, 71-59. “It was a lot of fun,” said 17-year-old senior Steven Feyedelem after the Friday night game. “This year was more fun. Last year we got blown out.” The annual event is organized by the school district’s Parent-Teacher-Community Organization, which also formed last year. The 2009 event raised about $2,500 and PTCO members are hopeful this year will bring in the same or more. Funds raised go to academic, athletic and art programs at all grade levels; for example, some of last year’s money went to a computer program for the elementary students, two author visits for the middle school and several academic scholarships. “Basically our big thing is enriching our curriculum through assemblies (etc.) and academic scholarships are always a focus,” said last year’s PTCO president Cheryl Halsey. The teachers started the game out strong, going up 8-0 within the first 2 minutes; at the end of the first quarter, it appeared to be easy sailing for the teachers, who were up 22-14. The students rallied shortly before halftime with a flurry of 3-pointers to cut the lead a bit — most of them coming from Feyedelem. At the half, the teachers were only up by 5 points, 38-33.

The observance fundamentally went unobserved, but this past Sunday, April 11, was the 68th anniversary of the fall of Bataan in the early days of World War II. We have spoken often about Joe Hrupcho, the last surviving member of Company C, 192nd Tank Battalion — a group of Ottawa County boys who went through untold horror and brutality at the hands of the Japanese Imperial Army. Only about half of the Company came home when the war was over, and many of them were n

From the entire Nagoya family, we would like to thank all of you who came Sunday for our Pancake Breakfast benefiting Ida Mercurio, as well as those who couldn’t make it but sent your warm wishes and donations. Ida was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2009 and has undergone extensive chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. She is an extremely strong individual with enough heart and optimism to fill an ocean, but the significant amount of expenses she is encountering has caused unnecessary stress and hardship on Ida and her entire family. Because of the enormous amount of generosity from our vendors who donated food, from the staff who donated their time and talent and from our extraordinary community, we were able to present Ida with a check in the amount of $16,292! We cannot thank you enough and Ida wanted us to extend her gratitude as well. “I have been a part of this community for over 40 years and I have so many wonderful people in my life. I don’t know how to thank all of you. I am overwhelmed with the amount of love and support I have received and continue to receive every single day.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she said. Mel and Barb Ayers,
Nagoya

RED HORSE support

To support our men and women of the 200th RED HORSE Squadron at Camp Perry, who are currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, several area family members and friends of the deployed Airmen hung yellow ribbons throughout the downtown Port Clinton area. Mary Snyder, owner of Mary’s Blossom Shoppe in Port Clinton and a long-time supporter of the Squadron donated all the ribbon and made the bows to make this happen. Mary has been a tremendous supporter to both the member and their families during the past two and the current deployment of the Squadron since 2001. Next time you’re driving through Port Clinton, please look at the bows and keep the 200th RED HORSE in your thoughts and prayers for a successful mission and a safe return. Mark and Susie Charlton

Last week, let’s say from Easter until Sunday, April 11, was the week when spring really came to our part of the world. Most trees are showing some “green,” forsythia bushes are in full riotous yellow bloom and grass is a healthy, glorious green (and requires mowing in lots of places). There were folks outside cleaning up their flowerbeds and vegetable gardens over the weekend. Shrubs and seeds are in the stores and shoppers are doing some serious buying. Several people have told me that ants have made an appearance in their house. I’ve seen an abundance of flies already (so the battle of the bugs is “on” for the season!) Another indicator that warm weather is on the way: signs for yard and garage sales. I’ve seen some. I saw one in Green Springs last Saturday and decided to stop and see if there were any bargains. I followed several “arrow” signs but never found the sale. nnn

Otterbein North Shore is gearing up for its 10th annual Classic Car Show. This takes place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 8.

Now that the spring clean-up season is getting under way there are some great events scheduled for recycling stuff that you don’t want or no longer need. So how about it? Do you have an old appliance to get rid of? If so, take it to the Ottawa County Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 24. The objects accepted will be those made of steal — including grills, mowers, etc. No televisions, computers or plastic appliances such as fans or vacuum cleaners will be accepted. Refrigerators with food inside will also not be accepted. But units containing Freon will be accepted at no charge. Then on May 1, household hazardous waste material will be collected at the fairgrounds. This includes household batteries, fluorescent bulbs, automotive fluids, household cleaners and pesticides, paints, wood stains, aerosol cans etc. And … if you take in an old mercury thermometer you will receive a free digital thermometer in exchange for it. Computers are accepted for recycling at all times at the Goodwill Stores at Port Clinton, Fremont, Bellevue and Tiffin. And televisions will be accepted at the fairgrounds on May 22. There will be a nominal charge to recycle TVs. nnn

The 15ht Annual Chili Cook-Off (this is also the 13th annual Ohio State Chili Cook-Off ) will be held at Mon Ami this year. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 24-25. This

is a sanctioned cook-off with the winning cooks qualifying to compete at the world level with a chance to go on and win $25,000. More than 40 cooks from around the nation and Canada are expected to compete. The proceeds from the cook-off at Mon Ami will go to the Ottawa County Unit of the Salvation Army for its “Tools for Schools” program. Last year the proceeds for the Salvation Army were $1,700. Visit the event for raffles, drawings, entertainment and giveaways. nnn

And, speaking of Salvation Army, the local Executive Director Maureen Saponari was the featured speaker at the Sarah Ladies group at Trinity United Methodist Church on Monday night. She explained many of the local programs. The Red Kettle Program in Ottawa County (ringing the bells at Christmas) was very successful in 2009. There is also a camp for children, toys for kids at Christmas, coats for people who need them, financial help on a one-time basis for families who run out of money and cannot pay their utility bills, and “Tools for School” which provides a book bag and school supplies for children who need them when school starts in the fall. There is also much more. Maureen says that monetary contributions are always welcome and that the most needed items for distribution are items that cannot be purchased with food stamps. Soap products (bar soap, dish detergent, laundry detergent, etc.) and paper products such as toilet tissue, paper towels, facial tissues are high on the list of needs. If you can contribute, just buy a few things and take them to the Sutton Center near the Port Clinton City Building at the east end of town and leave them for the Salvation Army. nnn

A Journey Toward Understanding

BUYING - BUYING - BUYING

Dr. Norb Wethington, pastoral associate for St. Joseph Church in Fremont, will speak at a free seminar at The Vineyard on Catawba at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 20. In October 2007, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Toledo and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Northwest Ohio jointly organized “A Journey

Paying Cash for your old Gold Scrap Chains / Bracelets / Rings

Toward Understanding.” This event has been described as a religious pilgrimage which combined the wisdom of both Lutheran and Roman Catholic traditions by experiencing sites important to both religious communities. Some 58 people attended, including the Bishops of both groups. Participants, as well as

the general public, are invited to this inspiring afternoon of pictures, artifacts and expert commentary. The seminar will be in The Vineyard on Catawba Community Center, 3820 E. Vineyard Village Drive. Reservations are recommended by calling the office at 419-797-3100.

Magistrate Lou Wargo, who regularly presides over the weekly court sessions commended the two, highlighting the fact that they really made good progress toward turning their lives around for not only their individual betterment but also their family and our community as well. “These two graduates in particular have not only bettered themselves but have served as a role model and active mentor for those participants following them in the program.” The program has been, with the assistance of the Ottawa County Pros-

ecutor’s Office and other community agencies, supervising a rehabilitation program for chemically dependent individuals as well as individuals with serious mental health problems charged with misdemeanor offenses since July 2009. Funding for the establishment and operation of the Intervention Court was initially being supplemented by a Department of Justice Grant, but has, since that date, received the full support of the Ottawa County Commissioners.

Though the island views remain, BeachAid-East Harbor has formed to fight for restoration. “This artificial shoreline used to be my beach,” said Dick Taylor, who grew up vacationing in the area. He, with locals and other vacationers, formed Beachaid-East Harbor — a nonprofit group with the single goal of seeing the beach restored naturally. As the area’s popularity increased, the state worked to accommodate the visitors by building parking lots and roads throughout the park. According to Taylor’s group, in order to protect the new investments, 8,600 feet of the beach area was fronted by a concrete seawall by 1970. And though sand was piled up around it, a major storm in the fall of 1972 — when the water rose and waves pounded the shore — destroyed the beach. The parking lots were protected but all the sand eroded, leaving the concrete seawall exposed. “We told people years ago when they started doing this that is was a bad thing to do but who are we,” said Bob Brown, owner of Channel Grove, in a video put out by Beachaid. “We’ve been here a long time and we want to see this thing solved and maybe make it better for the whole area,” he said. But Beachaid is not the only group working for restoration. Studies have been conducted on how to bring back the beach and state and park officials are working to do more. According to Ina Brolis, ODNR’s region manager for East Harbor and the Lake Erie Islands, one such report was completed just last fall. Toledo engineering group Proudfoot and Associates was hired with grant money to review the erosion. One suggested solution was to leave the seawall and add additional rock islands — a form of breakwater — like the ones at the current swimming beach. Taylor raises issues with that plan including blocking the view of the islands and adding more of the artificial to what should be a natural area. “I want to see a natural three-mile barrier beach back there at that facility,” Taylor says.

Seventh- and eighth-grade history teacher Drew Wicks dons a bright green wig to liven up the action last Friday night at Danbury Schools. Wicks promised to shave his head if anyone made a half-court shot during the game. His real hair was spared.

is lobbying for is just that, a natural solution. They propose removing a section of the seawall to see what happens. Taylor contends the return of some sand to the area each fall is proof the beach could naturally restore itself. The sand though is washed away by wave action against the seawall each year when the water rises again. “What we don’t want to see is two or three years invested in more studies with none of that money going to pilot programs,” Taylor said. But according to Brolis and others at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, more studies are needed before anything can be done. “We don’t want to make any future mistakes because we don’t have the science behind us,” Brolis said. “We as the land owners believe it is necessary before we move on with a project.” John Watkins, chief of the ODNR Office of Coastal Management in Sandusky, agrees. “The initial study didn’t get into specifics as to which one of the options would be the best. They took a preliminary stab at providing a range of options that could be considered further,” he said of Proudfoot’s study. Watkins — whose office provides grants and technical expertise — said more funding is being sought through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. As that became available last fall, the parks and recreation department applied for more than $1

million to study the area. If approved, the proposal includes enough money to take that initial report, look at the various options proposed and possibly do a pilot study. While Taylor argues the pilot program should first focus on a natural “soft” restoration, Watkins and Brolis said the study raised some issues with only removing the wall. “To what extent would everything behind the wall get washed out,” Brolis asked. Regardless of the approach, all sides agree something could be done to improve the shoreline. Tourists dollars go a long way supporting the area and Taylor says that’s all the more reason to put the focus on it now. “I think it should be elevated to a higher priority level,” Taylor said. “Especially with the economy the way it is now. A restored beach could bring a lot of money to the area,” he said. Taylor is taking these messages to legislators and officials around the state and is hoping others will join in the fight. Beachaid is hosting a public meeting at 7 p.m. May 11 at Ida Rupp Library to talk about the issue. “This meeing is the first opportunity for the public to sit down and listen to what we think happened there … Allow them a chance to say what’s important to them,” Taylor said. “I think it’s a good dialog that’s going on now,” Watkins said. “There are many different ideas and options and but we’ve all got the same idea here.”

Volunteers cleanup Civil War Cemetery Volunteers gathered at the Civil War Cemetery on Johnson Island for the sixth annual Civil War Preservation Trust’s park clean up day Saturday, April 10. The Civil War Preservation Trust, which is based in the Washington, D.C., area, designates approximately 100 sites, in 24 different states, to focus their efforts during one specific day. The day started with the volunteer group listening to Dr. David Bush, of Heidelberg College, go over the history of the island and of some of the more famous prisoners, such as Gen. James Archer and Gen. Issac Trimble. Bush then spoke on the nonprofit organization the Friends and Descendants of Johnson’s Island Civil War Prison, and how the group has raised almost enough money to pay off the loan on the 17.1-acre property that was the site

of the prison during the Civil War. The volunteers, consisting of toddlers on up, helped to clear away fallen trees, saplings and place markers for the boundaries of the former walls and buildings that made the prison. The annual clean up day helps Bush and Heidelberg College to do archaeological excavations on the land. During their research, which started in the late 1980s, they have found more than 10,000 items, including buttons, pottery and handmade jewelry. Those items recovered from the site are cataloged and housed at Heidelberg College. Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass was among those who volunteered, and during the lunch break, presented a proclamation declaring April 10 “Park Day” in all of Ottawa County.

Look for ways to cut investment taxes Like millions of your fellow citizens, you may be filing your taxes this week. If you think that things might have turned out differently had you paid less in investment-related taxes, you might want to take steps soon to help ensure a different outcome in 2011. Here are some “tax-smart” strategies to consider: • Invest in municipal bonds. If you’re in one of the upper income brackets, you might benefit from owning municipal bonds. The interest payments from “munis” are typically exempt from federal income taxes, and may also be exempt from state and local taxes, depending on where you live. (However, the interest from some types of munis may be subject to the alternative minimum tax, or AMT.) • “Max out” on your Roth IRA. If you qualify for a Roth IRA, try to fully fund it every year. Your earnings grow tax-free, provided you’ve had your account at least five years and you don’t take withdrawals until you’re at least 59-1/2. And now, it’s easier to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Under previous rules, you could only convert if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) was $100,000 or less. But starting this year, you can convert funds to a Roth IRA even if your MAGI is over $100,000. And if you convert in 2010, you can report the taxable income from the conversion over a two-year period, in 2011 and 2012. • Distribute assets between taxable and retirement accounts. You’ll want to look at all your investments as a whole to determine if they’re working together to help you achieve your goals. But in considering ways to control investment taxes, you may also find it useful to look at two separate categories: your tax tax-deferred retirement accounts, such as your tradi-
