On Tuesday, Jan. 5 at the Huron City School’s Board Office, Kevin Asher attended his first meeting as a Huron City School Board member. Asher ran uncontested for the position this past November, replacing Joy New School Board Hillman. “I ran for a Member Kevin Asher simple reason – to give back to a school system and a community that has given me and my family so much. Now that the family business has been sold and my children have grown, I have the time, and feel the obligation to help what is a solid and well-run school,” said Asher. Asher said his goal is to build on the foundation that the current Board has laid – a foundation that has helped Huron achieve the “Excellence with Distinction” recognition. “The school system has outstanding teachers and administrators, a supportive community, and leadership that has transformed this school system from State control to ‘Excellent with Distinction,’ ” Asher said. The new board member would like to see the school system expand its community partnerships with the Huron Eagles, ICI Glidden and Kalahari. He would also like to see the system upgrade its course offerings, its facilities, and its relationship with the community as a whole, while working with the school’s staff. “The current staff is the reason the school system is outstanding. Hiring the best and the brightest will only add to the high standards that already exist,” Asher said. “Secondly, and

as important, keeping the school system’s financial house in order is a must. This is especially important in times when funding for schools like Huron get cut by the Federal and State government. Making sound financial decisions and getting help from partners in the community will help keep us in the sound financial condition we currently enjoy. Thirdly, keeping the community apprised of what issues the school is facing, what our future plans for the school may be, and how we plan to get where we have our sights set will help keep the community as the most important partner we have. Knowing where we want to go and how to get there and keeping the community in that loop fosters cooperation that is invaluable.” Asher has been involved throughout the community in many ways. Over the past 15 years, he has coached basketball for Huron and is currently the eighth-grade girls’ coach. Other areas throughout the community Asher has been involved include the Jaycees, the K of C, the Huron Schools Community Board, and the Saunders-Foss Memorial Golf Scramble. Asher’s wife, Anne, teaches middle school science at St. Peter’s in Huron. He has two children: Monica, the new Athletic Director at Huron High School; and Nick, a mechanical engineer. Asher has worked for Marinas International at Lakefront Marina in Port Clinton after 25 years with The Asher Bros. Company in Sandusky. Prior to earning his Juris Doctor degree from Syracuse University College of Law in 1981, Asher had graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University majoring in economics and political science in 1978. Asher is a 1974 Huron High School graduate. As Asher is beginning his term with the board of education, Joy Hillman is stepping off. Hillman had served on the board for the past four years and had made a personal/family decision

not to re-run. “So many good things have happened over the past four years,” said Hillman, former school board president. “One of the most memorable in my tenure for the board is achieving the “Excellent with Distinction” status.” It has been a great four years. We have had a very cohesive board that has accomplished a lot. The Superintendent, the Treasurer ... all have contributed, the system has benefited greatly.” Hillman’s School Board career began when she was the Deputy Treasurer several years back for the 8.9 mil levy that removed the District from fiscal emergency. Her duties of drumming up support throughout the community, opening lines of communication and the challenge of gaining back the mistrust that had occurred lit a fire from within and encouraged her to run. Right out of the gate the board was faced with one of their greatest challenges – learning how to recover from fiscal emergency. They needed to work together with the community, the staff and each other to overcome some major relationship issues that had developed over time. “This board was instrumental in improving relationships,” Hillman said. Hillman takes particular pride in her personal hand in ‘weighted grades’ for high school students. A ‘weighted grade’ is when an Honors or an AP class is worth more points toward a GPA than a basic class. This weight potentially could raise the GPA to a higher number, depending on the outcome of the class and the number of Honors or AP classes taken. Colleges and Universities look closely at both weighted and non-weighted grade point averages. Hillman wishes the schools continued growth and improvement. “They are well run right now and I think Kevin will do a good job continuing on with this board,” Hillman said.

Around Town FTMC’s Kids’ Autism Program Teams with Norwalk Theater to Offer Movie Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s Autism Spectrum Kids program has teamed up with Premiere Theater 8 in Norwalk to bring families and children with autism and other disabilities a unique private showing of the movie “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.� The movie will be adapted to be a “sensory friendly� film, and will be shown at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 16 at Premiere Theater 8, 50 Theater Drive, Norwalk. Children on the autism spectrum and with other disabilities can be oversensitive to light and sound, making it difficult for them to enjoy a typical movie showing. “During sensory friendly films the sound is turned down, the lights remain on, and there are no previews or trailers,� said Dani Davie, occupational and sensory integration certified therapist at FTMC. “These modifications create a sensory friendly environment that will decrease the likelihood that the child will become overstimulated.� In regular movie showings, children are expected to remain

seated and stay still and quiet for up to two hours, a task that can be very difficult for children on the autism spectrum. “At our sensory friendly film, children will be able to talk, sing, dance, walk around, move and take a break as needed,� said Lindsey Soisson, speech-language pathologist and FTMC’s special programs coordinator. Children will be able to bring in their own gluten-free, caseinfree, or other special snacks if on restricted diets, but the concession stand will also be open. “We realize that children with autism and other disabilities have unique challenges in regards to social and community activities, and often may not get to join their families and friends at the theater,� Soisson said. “This type of adapted showing gives these children the opportunity to enjoy a movie with their families in a safe and accepting environment.� Children on the autism spectrum often have difficulty transitioning to new places and activities. To help prepare the chil-

dren for the movie experience For more information on a “Going to the Movie� social story has been created.

Introduced to the community in 2001, ASK is a program of Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s Pediatric Therapy Department.

He has a keen ear for musical styles and a deep respect for cultural tradition. Boyarsky, pianist, is a movement specialist, singer and ethnomusicologist who believes that every person is musical.

BY JUDGE BILL STEUK, HURON MUNICIPAL COURT With bad weather conditions ahead this winter, motor vehicle accidents will occur in our area. Many of these accidents will be a result of an operator of a motor vehicle crashing into the back of a vehicle traveling in the same direction ( the rear-end collision). Many times when a police officer investigates this kind of accident, he issues a citation to the driver of the vehicle who rear-ended the other for failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead or ACDA. The applicable statute under the Ohio Revised Code is 4511.21(A). It reads as follows: No person shall operate a motor vehicle, trackless trolley, or streetcar at speed greater or less than is reasonable or proper, having due regard to the traffic, surface, and width of the street or highway and any other conditions, and no person shall drive any motor vehicle, trackless trolley or streetcar in and upon any street or highway at a greater speed than will permit the person to bring it to a stop within the assured clear distance ahead. In the case of a rear-end collision, if a driver approaches another vehicle from the rear, the driver must be able to bring the car to a stop to avoid a collision. If a collision does occur, the driver can be charged with ACDA and could be responsible to the other driver for bodily injuries or property damage. It is important

to note that an ACDA violation does not necessarily involve whether or not the driver was driving above or below the speed limit. Also, poor weather conditions are not generally a defense to this violation. The statute requires that a driver maintain a distance ahead to stop the vehicle regardless of the conditions or speed of the vehicle. The purpose of the statute is to require all drivers to take conditions into account to avoid accidents and certainly avoid serious injuries. There are some defenses to an ACDA violation. They include when the vehicle ahead suddenly changes lanes into the rear driver’s lane and when the vehicle ahead was not discernable. An attorney should be consulted to determine if these defenses are warranted to challenge an ACDA violation. Even if a defense is applicable, a driver could still be liable for an accident for other reasons. To help prevent accidents occurring on our roadways, please take into account adverse weather conditions, poor lighting, uneven road surfaces and contours and all other conditions. Avoid ACDA violations, injuries and damages. Drive safely.

Strongest Man to Speak at NOMS Northern Ohio Medical Specialists is hosting the threetime World’s Strongest Man titleholder and Star Trac spokesman, Bill “Kaz” Kazmaier at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at its new fitness center, Northern Ohio Medical Fitness Center, Sandusky. The event is open to the public. Kazmaier has competed in six World’s Strongest Man contests. He became the first man to win the WSM title three times in a row. Although no longer competing, he is still active in the sport and has appeared on ESPN for the past 10 years as a commentator for WSM broadcasts. Kaz is a passionate and active supporter of health and fitness initiatives; travels to fitness facilities nationwide on behalf of Star Trac; educating both children and adults about active

lifestyles; and motivating people to overcome challenges in order to achieve their full potential in life and fitness. He will be giving motivational speeches during his appearance, demonstrating his extraordinary strength abilities, signing autographs, and will also be available for photo ops. Star Trac has become a global leader in the commercial fitness industry by extending its position as the fastestgrowing company in the commercial fitness industry.

Start the new year with a healthy approach to eating After indulging during the holidays, many people start the new year with intentions to eat well. “Treating yourself during the holidays and depriving yourself in January is not healthy,” says Anne M. Wolf, R.D, M.S, obesity specialist and instructor of research at the University of Virginia. “A better approach is to consider what you’re eating and its effect on your well-being, no matter what time of year it is. To start the year off right, Wolf recommends eating wellbalanced meals instead of obsessively counting calories. She suggests stocking up on fresh vegetables and fruits,

lean proteins, healthy breakfast foods and better-for-you snacks. But practicing portion control and choosing healthy foods over high-fat ones isn’t easy for everyone. For those who need some extra help, Wolf recommends FDA-approved alli to her patients. With the alli plan, you can lose weight gradually by learning the right way to use food. “Because of the way it works, alli makes you more conscious of the fat in the foods you eat, which ultimately helps you lose weight,” says Wolf. “It should be used as part of a comprehensive plan that teaches you to make healthy decisions.”

Mood-boosting foods: Tips to jump-start your body and your brain If you’re determined to eat right to lose weight or improve your health, the foods you choose could also make you happier. We’ve all heard the old adage, “you are what you eat,” and the importance of eating for physical health. But did you know that at the same time you could also be eating to improve your mental sharpness, energy and inner peace? Make breakfast a natural high – Restock your fuel stores in the morning with healthy foods, and your body, mind and energy will repay you throughout the day. Embrace the “good” fats – The more DHA omega-3 you eat, the more it is incorporated into brain cells, the more flexible your brain cell membranes become, the better you

think, the more you remember and the happier you are. Look for products bearing life’sDHA (www.lifesdha.com) on the label, such as Mission Life Balance Flour Tortillas, Silk Soymilk Plus DHA, or Walmart Spring Valley Fish-Free Algal-900 DHA supplements. Choose quality carbs – While all carbs will boost your mood, quality carbs in whole grains and colorful starchy veggies like sweet potatoes will give you sustained energy and a mood high without the extra calories. Eat right at night – Keep the evening meal light and lowfat and eat no less than three hours before bedtime, and you’re more likely to sleep like a baby all night.

Milestones OBITUARY Dorothy Louise McDonald April 24, 1918-Jan. 7, 2010

Dorothy Louise McDonald, 91, of Huron entered into the presence of her Savior, Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010, in Erie County Care Facility. Born April 24, 1918, in Detroit, Mich., she was a 1936 graduate of Northwestern High School. She attended both St. Paul Bible College in St. Paul, Minn., and Nyack Missionary College in Nyack, N.Y. She married Charles Owen McDonald in 1943. They resided in the Detroit and Troy, Mich., areas until the late 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, at which time they moved to Sandusky. Dorothy was a member of Sandusky Christian and Missionary Alliance Church where she was an active member teaching Sunday School, playing the piano and singing in the choir. Dorothy is survived by her four children, daughters, Denise Louise, (David Michael) Rowe of St. Paul and Lois Jean Patillo of Buchanan, Mich.; sons, James Owen (Carol) McDonald of Vermilion and Charles Timothy (Carolyn) McDonald of Vancouver, Wash.; 13 grandchildren; 6 greatgrandchildren; sister, Naomi Zellmer of Louisiana; and brother, David Jueckstock of Georgia. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles, in 1993; parents, Mable (Wells) and Gustav Jueckstock; two

brothers in child birth and brothers Jack and Harry Jueckstock; and sisters, Geraldine Ivory of California and Carol Brocklehurst of Michigan. Dorothy lived a full and rich life. She was never rich in earthly possessions, but she possessed an infectious zest for life and an unshakable faith that touched all who came in contact with her. A celebration of her life was held Saturday in Sandusky Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, 1135 Warren St., Sandusky. Burial will be in Meadow Green Memorial Park, Huron. Arrangements entrusted to Groff Funeral Homes, Sandusky. Condolences may be shared with Dorothyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family by visiting grofffuneralhomes.com.

Gardening with Mary The Garden in Winter MARY STRAYER, MASTER GARDENER Look outside your windows – with all this snow and all the new snow that is forecast – and notice the garden as it stands barren and white. Watch it carefully as the snow piles up. Is there someplace you would like to have an architectural element, a statue, a new shrub to give the garden even more shape and form? Look at

it carefully, especially out the windows where you sit the most, at any time of the day. Is there something great to see? Try to envision a red holly shrub, with its bright red berries still attached. Would you like to look at a swaying grass such as Miscanthus? Make yourself a note; put it into your day planner or your garden journal so you can remember these thoughts early next spring. Now, when the winds calm down and you begin again to get cabin fever, go outside and look at the trunks at the ground level, and see if there are any rodent tracks or tunnels there. If you find your tree trunk has had damage from rodents nibbling on it, then there still might be time to remove the snow from around the tree

trunk and cover the bottom of the trunk with a piece of plastic flexible pipe used for drains. Simply cut a length, and stretch it around the damaged area. Again, make a note to remove the pipe in mid-spring. If you haven’t already done so, take time now to go over the garden catalogs online, or ones that might have come in the mail. Every year, I try to add at least one new thing to my garden. Over the last three years, I have been cutting down on the size of the gardens and the work that has to be done there. But, still, I will add at least one new thing each year. Some will say it’s crazy, but I believe that as long as you can still actively garden, you need a little new each year to keep your mind happy and spirits high. Even if you can only have a few pots outside your condo door, change what is in them each year. Have fun with gardening – every minute you possibly can. Happy Gardening.

Sports Tiger Men Go 2-1 in SBC over the Week Coach Bobby James’ Varsity Boys team had a busy first week back from the holiday break. The Tigers opened the week at home with an exciting, last-second win over the Margaretta Polar Bears. That set up a showdown between the No. 1 (Port Clinton) and 2 (Huron) teams in the SBC. At Port Clinton, the Tigers ran into a very talented, physical team that gave Huron their second conference loss of the season. Undaunted, the Tigers came right back the following night and returned to their winning ways with a victory at Edison. There were two exciting contests that Monday night against the visiting Polar Bears. First, the JV contest went into overtime with Margaretta coming out on top, 45-44. Then, the Huron varsity started slowly by spotting the well-coached Bears a 10-4 lead early in the main event. Tiger wing, Derek Dowell, would hit the Derek Dowell makes a nice head home team’s first six points, fake against the Polar bears and but otherwise, Huron was then puts in the lay-up.

Huron Girls Still Winless in SBC Chargers Defeat Tigers, 48-32 in warm-ups and she did not play. Backup point guard, Gina Munafo, always a bundle of energy on the floor, has come in to do a respectable job filling in at point guard. Alexis Lemar has also been filling in for Estel. Still, the Tigers are very susceptible to the press and the Chargers gave them a full dose of it all game long. When the Tigers ran their offense, they got good looks but could not hit the shots. Huron was held scoreless for more than four minutes in the first quarter until Volz hit a three-point shot with an Edison defender in her face. A minute later, Munafo would find Volz for another two. Still, the Chargers would finish the opening period up 147. The closest Huron would get to a victory came at the opening of second quarter when feisty point guard, Alexis Lemar, would make two steals and two buckets to close the margin to 14-11. Edison would hit a free throw, and then at the 5:12 mark, Volz would hit her second of three 3-pointers to again get Huron within three points, 17-14. Unfortunately, the Chargers would hold the Tigers to two points the remainder of the half to open up a 25-16 lead. Edison continued to roll during the third period, outscoring the visitors 12-7, to widen the margin, 37-23. Early in the fourth, Huron’s last gasp came when Volz went on a little five-point run to make the score 39-28. The Chargers defense would rise up and only allow four more points the entire afternoon, while scoring nine more of their own for a final score of 48-32. Volz finished with 13 points and Devon Koenig led Huron with eight rebounds and added four points of her own. The Tigers have a 1-7 overall record.

It has been a rough two weeks for Coach Ty Ray and his Varsity Girls basketball team. He lost one of his best allaround players and best ball handler, point guard Caroline Estel, for much of the remainder of the season. Backup guard Justine Butler severely sprained her ankle at Monroeville and illness has also played a large factor. The loss of two guards certainly hurts when playing against the multitude of presses Huron sees in the SBC. Since the victory over Monroeville during Christmas break, Huron has lost games to Bellevue, Port Clinton, and most recently, the Edison Chargers. It is always tough to play a bigger school as are the Bellevue Redmen and this was no exception. The Tigers lost this game 56-40. Lauren Volz led Huron scorers with 17 points, including three 3-pointers. Steadily improving sophomore Sierra Ward had 10 points and seven rebounds. Alexis Lemar played a well-rounded game with six assists, five steals, and eight points. The low point of the Lady Tiger problems may have come at Port Clinton when Coach Ray could only dress seven players total. Huron was still able to make a competitive show of it but eventually fell, 39-34. Volz again led the way with 12 points, four rebounds and four steals, while senior Devon Grendow contributed with seven points, six rebounds and three steals. Next up was a game at Edison against the struggling Chargers. Like Huron, the home team went into the game looking for their first conference victory. For the Tigers, Butler would finally dress, but her ankle still looked shaky

The three-time All-OAC defensive tackle and Huron native, Matt Grieves has had an outstanding career playing football for Heidelberg University. So much so that following the 2009 football season, he was named a Second Team All-American for Division III football. It may also surprise some people to know that the 6-foot -5-inch, 255-pound senior is also a current member of his college’s basketball squad. Then again, if you are from Huron, maybe it is not that big of a surprise. You see, Matt was an All-Ohio basketball player at Huron in 2006 besides being a standout football player. He was recruited by colleges as a basketball player as well as for football, but when he arrived at Heidelberg, he decided to focus solely on football. Grieves had been approached to play for the basketball team before, but had been too hurt following a football season spent in the trenches to give it a serious try. With a new basketball coach

New Year! New Lifestyle! Have You Considered A Senior Community?

on campus, Grieves was once again approached partway through his senior football season. This time Matt decided to give it a try. Three days after the football season ended, he was fighting for rebounds on the basketball floor. I asked Matt how long it took him to get in basketball shape. He laughed and said, “I don’t think I am quite there yet.” Despite being out of competitive hoops for four years, Matt is not just there as a practice body, but is a contributor coming off the bench. In the nine games he has played so far this season, Grieves has averaged 3.7 points per game as well as 2.4 rebounds. He has also shared or was the leading rebounder for The Berg in three of those contests. Heidelberg’s current record is a solid 8-4. Matt is majoring in criminal justice. Upon graduation, he hopes to attend the police academy. Grieves is the older brother of a current starter for Huron’s Varsity basketball squad, Zach, and is the son of Don and Beth Grieves.

Health & Wellness Firelands Now Providing H1N1 and Influenza Vaccines Firelands Regional Medical Center is now offering Seasonal Flu and the H1N1 vaccines to community members who are 18 years and older. Vaccines are available (while supplies last) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Firelands’ Corporate Health Center, 1031 Pierce St., Suite A, Sandusky. No appointment necessary. The H1N1 vaccine is free of charge and available to those 18 years or older. Registration is required to receive the H1N1 vaccine, and pre-registration is recommended through the Ohio Department of Health Web site (as noted below). You can register when you arrive at Firelands Corporate Health Center, but for quicker processing pre-registration is available through an online registration system set up by the Ohio Department of Health. The pre-registration form can be accessed at www.odh.ohio.gov and clicking on H1N1; or https://h1n1vaccine.odh.ohio.gov. Anyone receiving the shot should then bring the form with them. The seasonal flu vaccine will be offered to those 18 years or older. The cost for the seasonal flu vaccine is $20 (credit card or cash). Those who are allergic to eggs should not receive the vaccine. Pregnant women should consult their physician. There is no cost to those with Medicare Part B (who have their Medicare Card with them at the time of the shot), however, Medicaid or private insurance will not be accepted. The pneumococcal vaccine will be available for $40. CDC guidelines for pneumococcal vaccines are as follows: one injection before age 65 and one injection after age 65 with a minimum span of five years between doses. A person must have a physician’s order for any additional pneumococcal vaccines. There are other steps community members can do to protect themselves and their loved ones during flu season, such as washing their hands. Flu viruses can survive on surfaces for up to eight hours. Keeping surfaces washed down regularly with an antimicrobial cleaner will also help to lessen contact with flu viruses. Additional Good respiratory etiquette and hygiene habits include: • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and then throw the tissue away. • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or upper sleeve. • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze or use the restroom and before eating. If you are not near soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth as germs often spread this way. • Stay away from people who are sick. • If you get sick, stay home from work or school. For more information about seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov, the Ohio Department of Health at www.odh. ohio.gov or contact the local health department. Continue to visit www.firelands.com for information about the seasonal flu and the H1N1 flu.
