Firefighter Awarded For Heroism by State Huron Captain Kurt Schafer was commended recently by Interim State Fire Marshal Donald C. Cooper for his bravery in saving the life of a train-car crash victim on Jan. 19. Cooper awarded Schafer during a ceremony at the Huron Fire Department on March 18. “Captain Schafer’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are keeping with the highest traditions of the fire service,” Cooper said. “His valiant actions bring credit to himself, his family, his department, and Ohio’s fire service.” According to the nomination, on Jan. 19, Schafer, who was off-duty that night, overheard the 10 p.m. dispatch on his fire radio about a train vs. car crash west of the River Road railroad crossing in Huron. Being only Captain Kurt Schafer was commended one-quarter of a mile from the accident scene, by Interim State Fire Marshal Donald C. Schafer immediately responded and was first at Cooper for his bravery.

the scene. He was able to report to crews that the road was blocked by the train and an overturned vehicle was on fire. The impact from the train, traveling at a speed of 50 mph when it hit the tracks, caused the vehicle to flip, roll over and immediately catch on fire. Without regard to his own personal safety, Schafer cross under the train, ran to the vehicle and found a victim trying to crawl out of a window. Grabbing the victim, he pulled him through a narrow hole in the window, and as he moved the victim to a safe distance, the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames. The Award for Heroism was unveiled in 2001, and is given based on a nomination by a member of the fire service, state legislature, or local government.

Huron Schools Approve Open Enrollment Policy By JENNIFER KILLBURy Beginning with the 2010-2011 academic year, students from others districts will be able to enroll in Huron City Schools through the open enrollment policy. The school board voted on March 16 to try open enrollment next year. This attempt is to recover the money the district is currently losing to area students enrolled in others district’s open enrollment programs. More than 50 students living within the Huron City School District are enrolled in other public schools that offer open enrollment. These students leaving the district are creating a deficit of close to $300,000 a year. The breakdown, per student, of these dollars equates to about $2,400 of state tax dollars and $3,400 of local property tax dollars, totaling $5,800 of school funding leaving the Huron community with each student. Huron City School Treasurer Mike Weis estimates this year’s loss of school funding due to lack of open enrollment to be about $292,332, which would require an additional 0.75 mills in local taxes to be made up. The Huron City School Board has carefully developed and reviewed an inter-district open enrollment policy that will allow Huron City Schools to accept transfer students along with their school funding (state and local tax mon-

Open Enrollment Policy The Huron City Schools Board of Education believes students should, under certain circumstances, benefit from an inter-district open enrollment policy. Based on guidelines established by the school administration and in conjunction with recommendation from officials of the Ohio Department of Education, the following requirements and guidelines for the transfer of students into our district are listed below. 1. The applicant must follow procedures for admission to the Huron City Schools. 2. The district capacity limits by grade level, school building and program in admitting an interdistrict transfer students are as follows: • Kindergarten class sizes 21 and below, • Grades 1-4 class sizes of 23 and below, • Grades 5-12 class sizes 24 and below, i. Special Education and gifted

ey) into the district to help offset this deficit. Weis, who has open enrollment expertise, said the policy is one of the most complete and comprehensive policies he has ever seen. It was drafted by the school administration with recommendations from Ohio Department of Education officials. The requirements and guidelines for transfer students are very specific. The policy limits class sizes and specifies that the district will not add programs or personnel to accommodate students accepted through open enrollment. Children of employees, children of families in the process of moving into Huron and students who have attended Huron City Schools, but recently have moved away will have priority in entering the district. “Educational integrity will remain our focus,” stated Superintendent Fred Fox. Adding a few students to each grade level would make up for the about 50 students who have transferred to other districts, he said. “By filling those seats alone the $292,332 of school funding would be replaced without going to the taxpayers.” “Open enrollment is a financial issue,” said Weis. “We cannot continue to lose money without going back to the taxpayer.” It is better to live and attend school within your own community; however, when it is not possible, this

classes will be limited to students below what state standards allow. These class size limits may change from year to year. 3. Students being admitted to the school district who are currently not enrolled in the Huron City Schools will be considered for admission in the following order: • Students who are the children of employees; • Students of families who are buying or building a new home in the school district, more than 90 days after the beginning of the school year; • Students whose legal residence is outside the Huron City School boundaries based on the following order: - First, students who have been a part of this program in previous years; - Second, brothers and sisters of students who have been part of this program in previous years; - Third, new applicants. 4. All applications for inter-district transfer must be submitted to

SUGARDALE BONE IN HAM /LB

the superintendent between May 1 and June 30. If capacities have not been met, this deadline may be extended by the superintendent. Applications will be acted on by Aug. 1 and parents will be notified in writing. If accepted, parent’s/legal guardians must provide written acceptance of the transfer to the Superintendent by Aug. 10. 5. One application must be completed annually for each student who is requesting an inter-district open enrollment transfer. Even if space is available, no applications will be approved after the first full week in October. 6. In compliance with ORC3313.98, the Huron City School Board of Education will enroll students without differentiation on the basis of academic, athletic, artistic, extracurricular activity or proficiency in English. No person shall on the basis of race, color, creed national origin, sex or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination un-

type of situation can arise and the district needs to react, he explained. Weis said the elementary grade levels may see the most interest in transfers into the district. Parent demographics indicate the elementary years are when friendships and relationships are developing and transfers might be easier. Fox does not expect an overwhelming demand because parents will be required to get their students to and from school. The policy reads that transfers are to provide their own transportation. With the new policy in place, for many of the same reasons students living in Huron have transferred to other districts that have similar policies, (i.e. to attend a district where a parent works, living on a border of a district where parents want their children to attend the same district as the neighborhood children; moving during the school year while keeping the students in their familiar surroundings; and several students open enrolled in other districts for their tuition-free kindergarten programs.) Huron will be able to pick up a few new students under the policy. According to Fox, the 50 students who transferred out make up only 3 percent of the total enrollment, a very low and varied percentage.

der any educational program. 7. No student will be displaced once he/she is accepted, however, assignment maybe changed in the event of unanticipated population growth before Aug. 15. 8. Enrollment in a special program (i.e. gifted, special education, other) may be limited according to space and availability. The school district may reject an applicant if the services specified on an I.E.P. are not available in the district schools. 9. The Huron City Schools is not required to institute any education program, including special education programs, to serve transfer students. 10. All approved applications for open enrollment are good for one school year only and may be discontinued at the discretion of the administration in subsequent years of Board action to discontinue the program. 11.

Around Town Chamber Looks to Sell Historic Float If you’re looking for the ultimate lawn ornament, a logo for your water-related business, or a ready-to-drive float depicting the freighters that ply the Great Lakes, the Huron Chamber of Commerce has a deal for you. Huron celebrated its Bicentennial with a year-long celebration during 2009. The centerpiece of all the activities was a 41foot long, 12-foot wide parade float that resembles a lake freighter that happened to drift ashore. Lining the sides of the realistic “land vessel” are the actual rivets found on

the iron giants that work the waters of the Great Lakes. When Bicentennial plans first got under way in the summer of 2008, transplanted Huronites Dick and Evie Durkin showed up at a meeting toting a scrapbook full of pictures of floats that Dick Durkin had designed and created while working for a company in Lincoln, Neb. Despite the fact the Bicentennial Committee had no money at that time, Durkin bought a used school bus that was in great shape mechanically.

Lake freighters, which still carry iron ore and coal up and down the Great Lakes, were a large part of Huron’s history. A stickler for authenticity, Durkin built an 8-foot high model of the actual lighthouse built at the mouth of the Huron River in 1847. Perched in the middle of the float is a three-tier, rotating birthday cake, which could be removed. The float was the hit of Bicentennial activities, appearing in numerous parades and highlighting a holiday festival of lights display. Built on a 1997 International school

bus chassis, it can easily be driven down the road from the “captain’s bridge” at the front of the float, and can be transported long distances via a flat-bed truck. The chamber is looking for anyone who knows of a lakefront community that is planning any kind of town festival or would like to buy a unique piece of history for its town park. For more information, contact the chamber at 419-433-5700 or chamber@ huron.net.

An example would be that if a trial court would fail to render a judgment in a particular case, an Appellate Court (superior court) could require that the trial court (inferior court) render such judgment. A procedendo action is one of the few actions where a case can be directly taken to a court of appeals or the supreme court. Generally, a court of appeals or a supreme court hears only appeals of cases that are already decided by an inferior court. Some exceptions to this general rule, however, are writs including procedendo. In addition to a procedendo action, cases which can be taken directly to an appellate or supreme court are habeas corpus actions, mandamus, prohibition and quo warranto.

Firelands Offering Free Parenting Class Firelands Regional Medical Center will be offering the next Happiest Baby on the Block parenting class from 10 a.m. to noon, Tuesday, March 30, Firelands’ South Campus, 1912 Hayes Ave., Sandusky. The Happiest Baby on the Block is based on the techniques of world-renowned pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp. Dr. Karp has been featured on Good Morning America, The Dr. Phil Show, ABC World News Tonight, CNN, and numerous national radio programs.

Filing Your Tax Return From Dee Hartley, Senior Tax Advisor at H & R Block Wow, we are fast approaching April 15, so this week I will try to give you a quick overview on the general topic of filing your tax returns and finding help. Remember a return can always be amended to correct it. If you missed filing at all or need to correct your 2006 return you only have until this April 15 to take care of that one. So if you are behind on your filing and expect a refund, 2006 is a good place to start catching up. You really need to file electronically if at all possible. IRS wants you to file electronically. 1. It’s fast. Your tax return will get processed more quickly with e-file. If there is an error on your return, it will typically be identified and can be corrected right away.  If you file electronically and choose to have your tax refund deposited directly into your bank account, you will have your money in as

few as 10 days. 2. It’s safe. When you file a tax return electronically, the IRS is fully committed to protecting your information on our tax processing systems. 3. With e-file, you get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the IRS received your tax return.  4. If you owe money to the IRS, e-file also allows you to file your tax return early and delay payment up until the due date. IRS.gov is a goldmine of information and forms. If you are not connected at home, go to the library and get help. March 25 is “ask a question at H & R Block day.” Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax is available at IRS.gov and contains a wealth of information for individual taxpayers. The online version of Publication 17 contains electronic links that make finding your answer simple.  Both the downloadable PDF and online 2009 Publication 17 have more than 6,000 hyperlinks.

You can get a hard copy of Publication 17 free. To get a copy, visit IRS.gov or call 800-TAX-FORM (800-8293676). If you want to get your refund as quickly as possible, tell the IRS to deposit your refund directly into your bank account. By choosing Direct Deposit, you can get your refund much sooner than if you chose to have a paper check mailed to you. 1. Security Thousands of paper checks are returned to the IRS by the U.S. Post Office every year as undeliverable mail. Direct Deposit eliminates the possibility you won’t receive your check and prevents your refund from being stolen. 2. Convenience The money goes directly into your bank account. You won’t have to make a special trip to the bank to deposit the money yourself. Are you expecting a tax refund from the IRS this year? If so, . Online Access to Refund Information Where’s My Refund? is an interactive

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY LAST TAX RETURN WAS DONE RIGHT? If you didn’t use H&R Block last year, bring in your return for a Second Look® Review. Last year, we found errors on 2 out of 3 tax returns prepared by someone else. ¶ We’ll check for missed deductions and credits, to help make sure you get the maximum refund you’re entitled to. We’ll also certify whether or not your original return is accurate.¨

When you call, you must provide your name, address, city and state, including zip code, Social Security number, phone number and have the following information: • Employer’s name, address, city and state, including zip code and phone number; • Dates of employment; • An estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and when you worked for that employer during 2009. The estimate should be based on year-todate information from your final pay stub or leave-andearnings statement, if possible. 3. File your return. You still must file your tax return or request an extension by April 15, even if you do not receive your Form W-2. If you have not received your Form W-2 by April 15, and have completed steps 1 and 2, you may use Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Attach Form 4852 to the return, estimating income and withholding taxes as accurately as possible.  There may be a delay in any refund due while the information is verified.

Schools Online Courses Soon to be Offered at HHS Huron High School will soon be offering a limited number of online courses to selected students. The school is working with Lincoln Interactive out of Pennsylvania to launch a pilot program to research the benefits of the courses. The pilot program is set to launch this summer for course recovery work for students who need to make up credits, said Principal John Ruf. The online program was recommended to the school system by the county during an administrative retreat. The school is exploring and weighing the benefits the program might have on the students. At this time, courses are being considered for students in need of course recovery, career exploration and to gauge student interests in different classes. There is no long-term commitment, no software needed and the courses can be limited through the online digital school. Currently, more than 200 schools across the country are utilizing online course for the same reasons previously mentioned. In the fall, seniors with a certain GPA enrolled in Ecology will have the opportunity

to take the online offerings of “Forensics” and “Mysteries of the Solar System.” These courses will be interactive during class time through 24 student laptops. Science teacher, Sam Hohler, will monitor the program as students will log on and work at their own pace. Other courses are being considered because of student interest. “Chinese” will be an online course offered to students through the pilot program also scheduled to be available this fall. By piloting this program we can manage our options within reason, said Ruf. “We are always willing to add quality educational programs for the students if they are worthwhile and cost effective.” Lincoln Interactive provides standardsbased online courses that use a variety of traditional and technology driven approaches to learning. Simulations, virtual reality environments, game-like scenarios for application of knowledge and problemsolving are all ways Lincoln Interactive encourages participation and conducts assessments.

Gardening with Mary Pansies and Johnny Jump-ups NOW! Mary Strayer, Master Gardener For years, I admired the beautiful pansy displays around town, and in the various flower selling establishments. Now for the past five or six years, I have had my own display at my home and it has been a sheer delight. I would recommend them for everyone to try at least once. In spring, you can plant pansies well before the last frost for early flowers. I plant them early in September while the days are still warm, and roots can form well before winter sets in and growth stops. This way you can enjoy your pansies into November, if not longer. In protected areas, I have had them blooming in December. Well-established plants survive even in USDA Zone 4.

First, when shopping for your pansies, the plants should be compact and a deep dark green in appearance. Small buds should be forming under the leaves, and there could be one or two 2 to 2 ½ inch blooming flowers, giving you many color choices. If the plants are all sprawled out in their container, avoid them. It they are faded, or otherwise not pretty in any way, avoid them, even if they are super cheap. Pansies are really undemanding annuals, and if you are fortunate they will come back the next season as well. They rarely experience pest or disease problems, and they thrive in average soil without special additions, such as extra fertilizer, etc. When you first plant them, I put slow release fertilizers on them. These are the types that very slowly release into the soil over a long period of time. Remember to remove spent flowers on a regular basis, and the pansies will con-

tinue to bloom for a much longer period The key to these little monkey-faced of time. Consider where you are planting flowers is to enjoy them. them. I love to have mine where I can see If you are fortunate enough to have them easily, such as by the front entrance, some that overwinter, you might want to consider covering them with screening rolled to become a cylinder. This way the little hungry bunnies will leave them alone. If you don’t like the idea of the screening, use a repellent spray. Johnny Jump-ups are a smaller version of a pansy, and they look similar, but are much smaller. They are 1- 1 ½ inch flowers, and they, too, come in assorted colors. These little ones like to spread, and mine usually spread into the grass, rather than into the flower beds. They have similar requirements as the pansies, and take little care. They bloom through to about the end of June, when finally the summer heat forces them and the pansies into submission. or by the mail box near the front door. Happy Gardening.

Outdoors Audubon Society Hosts Auction to Benefit Kids and Nature Sandusky – The Firelands Audubon Society is holding an online auction of nature photographs, with all proceeds earmarked for the Kid Nature Club. The local Audubon chapter has sponsored the Kids Nature Club for several years and according to coordinator Mary Warren “it is very popular with Erie County students who come together monthly to learn about nature and enjoy activities that leave no child inside.” Richard Hartley, a local photographer, has donated 19 nature photographs, some of which were recently exhibited at the Huron Public Library. The photographs are of vivid color, high quality and approximately 18 by 24 inches in size. Each picture is mounted on foam-core board and will be offered through the online auction Web site until May 3t.

Strengthening the Quality of life in a Home like setting

Firelands Staff Members Certified in Nursing and Nurse Education Firelands Regional Medical Center announces that Michelle E. Bussard, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC, CNE, faculty, Firelands School of Nursing, has earned the designation of Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) after successfully completing a certification examination developed and administered by the National League for Nursing. The hospital also announces that Erika Furst, RN, CRRN, recently obtained the Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse certification, though the Registered Nurse Certification Board of the Association for Rehabilitation Nurses. Bussard has been a nurse for 14 years and employed at Firelands School of Nursing for five years.  She received a diploma in nursing from Fairview Hospital School of Nursing, a bachelor of science in nursing and a master of science in nursing from the University of Akron. The newly certified nurse educators reflect the spectrum of their BUSSARD academic colleagues in the United States*: 29.8 percent hold doctoral degrees; the remainder master’s degrees; 44.14 percent teach in baccalaureate or higher degree programs; 40.2 percent in associate degree programs; 9.4 percent in diploma programs; and 5.6 percent in practical nursing programs; 56.2 percent hold the rank of assistant professor or higher: 13.3 percent are full professors; 17.6 percent, associate professors; and 25.3 percent, assistant professors 32.5 percent have more than 15 years of full time employment experience as academic nurse educators. With 42.4 percent of nurse faculty projected to retire within the next decade and 69.8 percent within 15 years, replacing them is of grave concern, noted NLN president Dr. Elaine Tagliareni. “We must encourage

more nurse faculty to prepare for certification as nurse educators so that our nursing schools can be staffed by academicians of the highest caliber. Only in this way can excellence in nursing education be ensured for another generation.” In 2008, 663 nurse educators were awarded the CNE credential. Since the unveiling of the program in fall 2005 through September 30, 2009, 1,888 nurse educators representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have become CNEs. Erika Furst received an Associate FURST Degree in Nursing from Lorain Community College.  She has been employed at Firelands for four years and has more than 12 years of nursing experience.  She resides in Bellevue with her daughter. Adding to her nursing professionalism and expertise in the field of rehabilitative nursing, certification Serving Our Community Since 1902 validates Furst’s expertise in the field and dedication to promoting optimal wellness and assisting patients in meeting their maximal physical potential and independence through the management of complex medical issues.  *Demographic data reflects those who took the examination Sept. 28, 2005 through Sept. 30, 2009.

Mary Strayer, MaSter Gardener We all long to see hummingbirds come to our gardens and our feeders. Plan ahead for this event by planting hummingbird plants throughout your garden, or you can place your plants in clusters. By providing water, shelter and a large assortment of colorful flowering plants, you will be rewarded with the company of these little delightful gems. You will also help ensure their future by replacing food plants and habitat lost to human activities like agriculture and urbanization. Attracting hummingbirds to your garden with flowering plants is especially fun for children, as it offers a great way to learn. Everyone seems to love watching them dart to and fro from flower to flower in search of their next sip of nectar. Many non-gardeners use feeders to entice the hummers to their area; planting colorful flowers, shrubs and vines bring added beauty to the landscape and joy to those watching the wonderful show. Hummers prefer water sources that drip, or a very low-volume mist or spray. A small fountain with multiple tiers is a wonderful add-on near your patio or any seating area. It will draw in the hummers close range, and once they get used to you, they will begin visiting more and more often. Hummers like small diameter items to perch on. An arbor made of ½ to 3/4-inch

diameter metal tubing works well. This gives the hummers a resting spot, and we have noticed over the years that they sometimes sit for several minutes when undisturbed. Consider leaving small handfuls of clothes dryer lint around in the shrubs in early spring. Not only the hummers, but other birds will snatch it up and use it for nesting materials. When planning your hummingbird area in your garden, realize the time they come to your area. Here in USDA Zone 5 the hummers come in around May 15 generally. When winters are shorter or warmer, they could come earlier. Now look about the nurseries and other gardening supply centers for flowers that would be blooming at the time they arrive. Luckily here in Ohio, we plant perennials that are already near bloom. This helps to draw the hummers in quickly. It is very important to remember to never use pesticides on plants near where the hummers eat, or it could kill them. Plants that the hummers love are many – especially any flower with a cup shape petal. This will allow them to insert their beaks into the petal, and get the precious nectar. Some of these flowers are: Stachys, Agastache-licorice mint, columbines, Heuchera or coral bells, bee balms, trumpet vines, Penstemon, Buddleia and Weigela. So, now you have the list, look closely and you will find many more flowers that will fit this classification. Enjoy, and Happy Gardening.
