From the City Manager On Sunday January 8, 2012 the city of Huron successfully imploded the former Conagra building; this spring the remaining buildings will be removed in support of waterfront redevelopment. Having had the distinct pleasure of working on this project for several years, this day was a culmination of much hard work by countless individuals -- without which it never would have happened. Past and present Councils, municipal staff, state and federal administrators, consultants, contractors, family members and citizens supported this effort and made it a reality. The community was filled with excitement leading up to the actual event and then it happened. I will never forget the rolling cadence of detonating charges, the rising dust cloud or the thousands of faces in the crowds lining the streets. And this was a community success not confined to one town or another, it was regional. Officials from local government throughout Erie County were on hand to observe the implosion, as were state officials and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur. The Huron Police and Fire Departments were supported by dozens of other agencies throughout the area. Observing police cars and personnel from Sandusky and Vermilion in Huron made sense. The project also fulfilled a very special wish for a young cancer survivor, Max Hinton. The city will now return to its day to day and the face of Conagra will gradually transition into its new life. We may not see an event like this for sometime but it will happen again. Next time it may be in Perkins or Sandusky but the entire region will be the beneficiary. I hope this project will serve as a reminder of what we can do for our region working together. I know this community can do it again. You did it. I am grateful to many more people than could be mentioned in this letter, thank you. Andy White Huron City Manager

January Garden Considerations Mary Strayer, Master Gardener The heavy snow has not arrived, and its 2nd week in January! Now is the time to look at the bird feeders, if they are dirty looking, wash out and disinfect, dry and refill the feeders. When you clean them use 1 part bleach to 9 parts water. If possible get high quality birdseed that does not have the fillers, like Milo mixed with it. The birds won’t eat it, and it makes a mess of your yard. Black-oil sunflower seed is a popular food for many of our local birds. We have had some whopper wind storms in our area these last few weeks, so take a moment to look around, and remove any broken branches in shrubs and trees. There is no need to hurry, take your time, keep warm, but if you start now, it will be much easier in the spring. Pick one or two shrubs to work on, do some pruning, then step

back, take another look, and you can tell how much or how little you still have to do. Then go inside, warm up, have a hot liquid, and decide if you want to do more. Now take a fresh renewing look at your landscape. Do you have bushes that happen to grab your jacket or pant legs when you go near them? Now is the time to remove them. Are there shrubs crowding your entrance ways? Prune them back, or take them out and you won’t have to deal with it in the spring, when you have so many other chores to do. Many of us plant things in our yards, and they look great for a few years, then they get past their prime. Now is the time to change things, so you are ready to go, come spring. With all the recent warmth, we have enjoyed long walks in the garden. Even if you have a postage stamp yard, take a close look. Yesterday the periwinkle vine was blooming, and the spring bulbs are growing quickly. My tulips are up 3”, and that’s still ok, as long as they stop growing now, the bulb will wait to send up the buds. Buds are swelling on the fruit trees, and the same goes for them. It’s time to hope for a freeze, one that stays on until at least March! Consider joining a group of gardening friends for a chat over coffee. All of us gardeners are tired of the horrible winter weather, so why not share thoughts of your 2011

Huron City Schools Launches Apps In a fast paced world loaded with technology, Huron City School students, parents and the community now have an another option when it comes to retrieving important information on the go. TJ Houston, Technology Director for Huron City Schools, designed and launched the app last month to make school resources more readily available with just a few clicks of a button. Contact information, newsfeeds, student’s grades, the school calendar, lunch menus, lunch account balances is some of the information now available on the app. There are over 30 videos on the school “You Tube” button. Having this type of technology invites the community into our classrooms to see inside our walls, explains Houston. The current design took approximately 2 ½ to 3 weeks to complete. Houston developed the app with a fellow developer friend, Ryan Worcester. The free Apple software they used was familiar to Houston from a previous project he had worked on when employed by Best Buy. The app stores all of the information it is assigned and is currently programmed to update along with the website. Houston explained the app actually gets updates faster than the website. Worcester is a Web Marketing Assistant for Visual Products in Wellington, Ohio. His knowledge of IOS programming helped Houston in the launching of the app. The possibilities of what can be added to the app to benefit the students and all of the users are really amazing, explained Worcester. The current app is for IOS devises such as i-Pod, i-Pad, and i-Phones. Houston is actively working on servicing the entire technology community through the development of the Android version of the app. Houston announced he is hopeful to have push notifications for the ISO devices updated by the end of the month. This will allow users to be informed instantly of school closings due to weather issues. The app was launched on December 14, 2011. At this point 152 people have downloaded it, including users in Spain, China and Brazil. The app is available for free through the Apple i-store and can also be accessed through the Huron City Schools website. Houston would like the app to be as user-friendly as possible and is open to suggestions. Please feel free to email him at this school email address:

Lenyo Wins Geography Bee

“Steve the Solver” demonstrates his problem solving strategies in answering questions from the second grade math students.

“Steve the Solver” Visits Math Students at Shawnee Second grade math students at Shawnee Elementary School learned a new approach to problem solving strategies through the use of construction tools and the “Tool of the Week Club”. Mrs. Amanda Arthur, Gifted Interventionist, designed the problem solving program based on the well known cartoon, “Bob the Builder”. “Steve the Solver” was designed to be Bob’s twin brother and his role was to assist with problem solving techniques in the animated construction world. The students applied what they learned from Steve to solve problems in the real world. The 13 week program introduced a new “tool” or problem solving strategy a week. Mrs. Arthur taught the math students of Mrs. Beth Kluding and Mrs. Angie Vogus hands-on creative ways to problem solve in math. For example, draw a picture to figure out the problem or act the problem out. Each week students received a new “tool” for their toolbox and practiced

Eighteen students from Woodlands Intermediate School accepted the “Geographic” challenge on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. Nick Lenyo, sixth grade, took first place in the National Geographic competition. Stephen Demos, fifth grade, came in second place. Superintendant Fred Fox was present to read the geographic questions that covered topics pertaining to cities, continents, physical geography and cultural geography. The National Geographic Bee competitors from Woodlands Intermediate School included: fourth graders, Madison Belden, Lilly Franks, Luke Hanley, Michael Stout, Brain Wiseman and Danny Wiseman. Fifth grade students included: Stephen Demos, Vincent Gerold, Jay Lesnett, Tanner Mize, Rowan Roshong, and Alec Wostmann. The sixth grade participants were: Mackenzie Mullins, Grant Nelson, George Pettegrew, Brooke Ritzler and Brendan Roth. The next step for Lenyo is to complete the written 70-question exam to qualify him to compete for a place in the State-Level Geography Bee held on March 30, 2012. Winners from each State-Level Bee attend the National Geographic Bee held May 22-24, 2012 in Washington D.C. A combination of oral and written questions was asked throughout the competition and a record number of rounds took place before the battle for first came to a close. Typically the Bee only lasts about an hour or so, this was unusually long, explained Mr. Dale Casper, Gifted Intervention Specialist and Geography Bee organizer for Woodlands. School districts across the United States have “geographically” challenged their students grades four through eight in the National Geographic Bee. This particular challenge, sponsored by the National Geographic Society, is designed to generate student Superintendent Fred Fox and Nick Lenyo, interest in the subject of geography, encourage geography in- 6th grade, pose for a photo following the struction and study, and increase public awareness about geog- Woodlands Intermediate School Geograraphy.

using the new strategy to solve problems. The students were able to cut out, color and add their new tools to their toolbox as a reminder of the strategy learned, explained Mrs. Arthur. Mrs. Arthur created the character “Steve the Solver” to help teach the project. “Steve the Solver” made an appearance in the Shawnee classrooms just prior to the Holiday break. “Steve the Solver” explained to the students he figures out the measurements and Bob does all of the building. “Steve the Solver” was played by Enzo Capizzi of Sandusky. Capizzi is a homeschooled student who very confidently and with quick wit and humor was able to hammer out all of the questions the students threw his way by demonstrating his problem solving techniques. “Steve the Solver” had a special surprise in his toolbox for the students. Prior to his departure he awarded them with a certificate for completing the program and passed out a treat.

The young Huron Tigers girls varsity team went up against two of the area’s best pressing defenses this past week. The first was against the Edison Chargers. Huron played well in the first half and took a 2120 lead. But the experienced Chargers came roaring back to pick up the win, 38-56. Guard Amanda Vacca led the balanced Tiger attack with 8 points. Later in the week, the Clyde Flyers full court pressure gave the youngsters fits as the undefeated visitors showed why they are one of the best teams for their size in Ohio. Freshman Hannah Cantril led Huron with 10 points in the tough 77-21 loss.

Wing Colin McCready (30) had 12 points on the night including the three pointer that forced the game into OT.
