Run, Walk Or Come Cheer on Lighthouse Racers This Saturday This Saturday, May 1, is the 12th annual Huron Chamber of Commerce Lighthouse 10-miler and 5K races and the Kalahari Kids’ Fun Run. There is still time to get out and soak up some sunshine on a bright (hopefully) Spring day and work at becoming a bit more fit. Those who don’t feel up to running on Saturday are invited to come out along the course and cheer on the runners.

Registrations will be accepted from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. on race day in the locker room at Huron Memorial Stadium. The 1K Kid’s Fun Run will be held on the high school grounds with participants receiving a commemorative T-shirt, refreshments and a chance to win valuable door prizes from Kalahari Waterpark Resorts. A Company Cup Challenge is planned in conjunction the NOMS Tiger 5K and the Fire-

lands Area Runners Club 5K Scholarship Race later this year. Teams of four that compete in all three races will be eligible for a top combined award. A registration form can be found on the Chamber Web site, www.huron.net. In the past decade, the Huron Chamber has contributed scholarships to more than two dozen Huron High School graduates with funds raised through these races.

By Lisa yako of HistoricaL researcH Partners A series of tragic events led Andrew F. Linker to Huron in the late 1800s. Andrew Phoenix Linker was born on a farm on Galloway Road in Perkins Township on May 22, 1870, to John C. and Margaret Linker. Andrew’s mother, Margaret, died in 1878, and his father, John, died in 1888 after being run over by a train. Since adulthood, in the legal context, was not reached until age 21, Andrew came under the guardianship of family friend, Gustavus Graham. Soon, Andrew came to live with the Graham family and helped maintain their farm at 3419 Cleveland Road in Huron Township (currently owned by the Barnes family). Further, Andrew became the sole heir of Gustavus Graham after the Graham’s only daughter, Cora, committed suicide in December of 1888. n 1902, Andrew married Emma Josephine Frye. Emma, the daughter of Jacob and Emma Frye, was born in April of 1878, was raised in Huron, and graduated from Huron High School in 1894. She attended college in Berea, Ohio, where she obtained a teaching certificate.

Emma taught in a one-room school house in Huron prior to and after her marriage. After Andrew and Emma’s wedding, the newlyweds lived with the Graham family. Andrew and Emma were blessed with three children, Lurella Belle born in 1904, Ivan Graham born in 1905, and Donna Rose born in 1921. The Linkers were quite active in the community and served on many committees. Their involvement included the Erie County Grange, the juvenile Grange, the Women’s Council of National Defense, the County Health League, the Erie County Fair, the Knights of Pythias, the Rye Beach Food Club, the Farm Bureau, and the Sandusky Library Trustees. Tragedy visited the Linker family when Ivan Linker died in July of 1919, at the age of 13. Ivan had been swimming with some friends at Rye Beach. The waves were large and the strong undertow caught Ivan and pulled him out of reach of his friends. His body was not recovered until the following morning. Andrew’s primary occupation was farming; yet, as the hard times of the Great Depression overtook the country, the Linkers, like most American families, could not survive on farming alone. Around 1930, the Linkers opened their home to tourists as the Ridgewell Inn. In addition, two chicken coops that sat north of the house were converted to cabins and then

The dinner will also include Berardi’s famous fries and cold slaw which Al donates. You will see them at J&J’s Drive Thru each afternoon where they will be cleaning fish. So if you see a lot of fishing rigs parked a J&J’s stop in and see the results of their school. You might also thank them for visiting our area.

Later, the Ridgewell Inn also offered tennis courts and a miniature golf course for the guests. The Linker’s continued to welcome tourists into their home until Andrew’s death in 1942. After Andrew’s death, Emma remained in her home for the next eight years. She was having difficulty maintaining the property and her daughters encouraged her to sell. Being fiercely protective of her home, Emma would not sell the property to just anyone. She especially would not sell her home to someone that intended to turn the house into a liquor establishment because she was strongly opposed to the use of alcohol. In 1950, Harold Barnes was looking for land along the lakeshore upon which to grow roses. Emma agreed to sell the property to Harold since his intentions were agricultural. After selling the property to Harold, Emma moved to Sandusky. She remained in Sandusky until the time of her death in 1959. Emma was buried with Andrew and Ivan in the Oakland Cemetery in Sandusky.

Around Town City Updates Peddler’s License Law

FROM THE BENCH

Don’t Dye Rabbits and Baby Poultry By Judge Bill Steuk, Huron Municipal court When you deal with statutes on a regular basis, you sometimes come across statutes that are quite unusual. Since we are in the Easter season, I came across one statute that was quite fitting. Under Ohio Revised Code Section 925.62, it is illegal for any person, firm or corporation to dye or otherwise color any rabbit or baby poultry, including but not limited to chicks and ducklings. This law also makes it ille-

gal to sell, offer for sale, expose for sale, or raffle or give away any rabbit or baby poultry that has been dyed or otherwise colored. This law was established in 1971 and has not been amended since. So although someone might find it cute, you cannot dye a rabbit or baby poultry for Easter. A violation of this section is a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. Articles appearing in this column are intended to provide broad, general information about the law. Before applying this information to a specific legal problem, readers are urged to seek advice from an attorney.

After three readings, Huron City Council approved Ordinance No. 2010-09 which amends Chapter 711 -Peddlers of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Huron. Language within this ordinance has been revised to comply with current laws relating to freedom of speech. Who is considered a peddler? A Peddler is any person going door to door attempting to sell a product or service. Exceptions to this definition are: 1) An individual who delivers goods or wares sold by an establishment having a permanent place of business. 2) An individual who sells daily household consumption items such as baked goods, fruits and vegetables, dairy products.

3)An individual who is exercising his/ her right of free speech in the areas of organized/unorganized religion, political advocacy, appeals for charitable contributions or other forms of protected speech. Does a Peddler need a license issued by the City of Huron? Yes, Peddlers are required by Ordinance to complete an application at the City Manager’s office in order to be issued a Peddler’s License. Peddlers must follow the rules and regulations of the ordinance and must carry the Peddler’s License and produce it if requested by any resident or official. For more information, visit the city Web site and view Ordinance No. 2010-9 in its entirety or contact the clerk of council with questions at 419-433-5000, Ext 102.

andy WHite, city Manager At its regularly scheduled meeting of April 27, 2010 the City Council considered a number of important legislative items which included several amendments to the Codified Ordinances and Annual Budget, regionalism, capital infrastructure improvements. Codified Ordinance Updates The introduction of new personnel and perspective in the Law Department has provided an opportunity to review longstanding policy incorporated in local law. The Codified Ordinances establish the legal parameters for the regulation of activities in the city ranging from applying to conduct a garage sale at your home (741.04) to placing material on public property (970.08) to restricting the focus and aim of headlights (337.17). Periodically the laws are reviewed to reflect

any needed changes. A complete copy of the ordinances is available at http:// www.cityofhuron.org/citycouncil.htm. Three ordinances amending the code were considered on a first reading by the Council on Tuesday evening; in order to become permanent law the legislation will be read at two additional meetings. Chapter 159, which regulates the city’s purchasing function, was recommended for amendment. Specifically, the threshold limitation requiring a full bid process for purchasing equipment, currently limited at $15,000, would be raised to $25,000 to allow for an improved flow of business at city hall. The city would still seek quotes prior to procurement, and any final acquisition would be subject to legislative approval by the Council. This ordinance has not been amended since 1999 and the recommended threshold of $25,000 is the standard for similar activity at the state level. Ordinance No. 2010 – 17 recommends an increase of the fee to utilize the shelter rentals in the city’s parks system by $5. Currently the fee is $25.00 per day for residents and $35.00 per day for non-residents; if approved the fees would change to $30.00 and $40.00 respectively. In addition to the increase, a tiered use is recommended that would establish morning, afternoon and all day uses. The morning and afternoon rate is $30.00 and $40.00 for residents and non-resident and these amounts would be doubled for an all day event. The proposed amendment will provide increased flexibility for the rental of shelters. Historically, shelters have been available to rent for events on a daily basis, which restricts the additional use during periods when the shelter is not needed by the renter. The proposal will

now allow individuals to rent a facility only for those hours needed, while allowing for additional activities to be held at the same shelter during different times of the day. Finally, Chapter 721 of the Code which regulates Taxicab operations in the city has been recommended for amendment, specifically to increase the fee associated properly licensing the operation. The current fee, established in 1962, is $15.00 for the initial taxicab and $10.00 for each additional. If approved, after three readings, these amounts would change to $50.00 for the first cab and $20.00 for each additional cab. Additionally, operators within the City need only to produce a State issued certification as opposed to the previous policy which required the City to issue a separate license. Budget Update In total Council approved the increase of $24,600.00 for unanticipated receipts including $12,100 for an estate tax allocation, over $6,000 for the sale of equipment and $5,000 for the receipt of a grant award for the Parks and Recreation Department from the Sandusky Erie County Community Foundation (SECCF). On the expense side of the ledger, the council approved an expense of $5,000, utilizing the SECCF grant award which will accommodate the installation of concrete curbing at Lakefront Park and the installation of child-friendly groundcover surrounding the play equipment. The Council also set a date for a Public Hearing to discuss the annual Tax Budget on June 8, 2010 at 6:30 pm at City Hall. The document will be available at the Clerk’s Office and the municipal website on or before June 1, 2010. Regionalism Resolution No. 2010 – 29 was authorized by Council to enter into an agreement

with the Erie County Commissioners for the provision of Human Resources. Since 2004 the city has been without a full time department head in this position and limited in its ability to accommodate a full time replacement because of budgetary constraints. In place of full time personnel, department head positions have assumed a number of additional responsibilities to accommodate the void. The cost for this agreement is $5,000 and will continue the professional relationship between the two parties established last year. Essentially, the city receives the benefit of a sophisticated human resource program without the overhead associated with inhouse personnel. The Council also authorized an analysis of its water distribution system with an emphasis on its overall ability to take on greater volumes of water. In 2009, the city conducted a leak detection survey and discovered a large leak flowing into a stream and accounting for a large volume of lost water. After the necessary maintenance was completed the filtration plant is now in a position to sell more water. In an effort to stabilize or reduce local water rates the Council is exploring the city’s ability to accommodate a large bulk water customer to guarantee an amount of the available surplus. The cost to push more water through the existing system is relatively fixed. Therefore, an agreement with a new company or local agency to purchase more water could bring in excess revenues that would be used to hold costs down, provide for needed capital or reduce current rates. The analysis will be an important tool for the city’s future planning in this regard and also provide useful perspective in ongoing regional water discussions. Ultimately, the city will be best served through the implementation of a policy that has positive regional impacts. Capital Improvement – Street Resurfacing The Council is in the midst of planning for the 2010 street resurfacing program. Eight streets have been selected for improvement this season, including: Williams, Shirley, Mill, Huron, Tyler, Paris, Stedman and Riverside Drive. Several alternatives for each section will ultimately be considered in the bid for the possible inclusion of new curbs, sidewalks and additional cosmetic features. The portion of Riverside Drive from Main Street to Laguna is in need of a comprehensive improvement. What is proposed in 2010 is a short term repair that will improve the current surface for a three to five year period. This will allow for necessary planning needed to for the implementation of new infrastructure including curbs and sidewalks on this entire street in the future. Two proposals have been received for this work and are being reviewed now. It is anticipated the project will be awarded at the next Council meeting.

Parent Academy to be Held at Woodlands Huron City Schools has received a grant from the Ohio Department of Education to offer a “Parent Academy.” This program is set for Wednesday, May 12, at Woodlands Intermediate School from 5:30 to 8 p.m. There will be planned programs and activities for both parents and students. During this program, attendees will learn about the school lunch program and how it can be part of a healthy diet. Physical activity, the use of MyPyramid and portion size will also be discussed. Several local vendors will have displays set up showcasing their offerings and how they can help with

better nutrition and physical activity for the whole family. A light dinner will be provided along with a take home “healthy” snack. There will also be games and door prizes at this family event. For more information or those with questions can call Food Service Director, Sue Whitaker at 419-433-1234, Ext. 5007; or School Nurse Janis Wallace at 419-433-1234, Ext. 5511 with questions. More information and an RSVP tear~off form Will also be sent home with students in the near future.

Watch Me Grow Program Focuses on Good Health Students in kindergarten through the fourth grade in the Huron School System participated in the “Watch Me Grow” program in their physical education classes last week. Twice a year the students are challenged with an age-appropriate checklist to determine how they are progressing. The first sets of records were taken in mid-September shortly after the school year began. The second sets of records were recorded last week. At the end of the school year a letter and detailed report will be sent home to parents informing them of their student’s progress. Important information such as height, weight and blood pressure changes along with vision and hearing assessments are all noted, as well as the progress of the physical activities on the individual grade level checklists. “The data is entered into a system to generate BMI reports. These reports come from the Center for Disease Control,” said Dana Skavnak, physical education teacher. “The “Watch Me Grow” Program is a modified version of the “Presidential Physical Fitness Test”,” Skavnak said. The school system added a few important key elements, such as: height, weight, blood pressure, vision and hearing to round out the program. Physical activities kindergarteners were asked to complete included catching and throwing a bean bag, kicking a stationary ball, hopping on the right foot, then the left, galloping, skipping, changing direction while running, summersault, and hopscotch. First grade students were observed dribbling a ball, jumping rope, galloping, skipping,

changing direction while running, summersault, hopscotch, sit and reach and the balance disk. Second-, third- and fourth-grade students were observed doing sit-ups, pushups, standing long jump, jump rope, galloping, skipping, sit and reach, and shuttle run. New this spring, nursing students from Lorain Community College’s School of Nursing assisted with the program. “It is a great opportunity for the Nursing Students to see healthy active kids, as well as, the nursing students have been of great help to the program,” stated Skavnak. The program was made possible by the parent volunteers who contributed their time to help assess every student. “Our parent volunteers are extremely helpful,” Skavnak said. “Without their help the program would not be possible.”

Lady Tigers Reach .500 after Slow Start Corso sets Huron record with 22 Ks v. SMCC The Varsity softball team came into this week struggling with a 3-6 record. Following some wonderful weather that allowed Huron to warm their bats for some timely hitting, the Tigers are now rolling with a 7-7 record. Coach Everman and the team continued to get excellent pitching from Corso and Warren as they have all year, including a recordsetting strike out effort against an SBC rival. The Tigers opened the week against the Panthers. Hayley Corso fired a three-hitter over 12 innings in the pitchers’ dual. But the big news was that she struck out 22 visitors that set a new school record. The previous record was 20, set in 2000 by Becca Johnston against Sandusky. In the bottom of the 12th, Corso led off with a single and advanced to third via a base hit by Kate Webber. Then Kelsey Koehler, who went for 2-4, knocked in Corso for her second run on the night to give Huron the 2-1 victory. The following night, Huron took on the Rockets of Oak Harbor. Corso again pitched well to improve her record to 5-2. Olivia Warren crushed the ball out of the park to tie the game at two apiece in the second inning. The game winning run was scored in the fourth inning by Koehler who was knocked in by Renee St. Clair for the 3-2 victory. On Friday against Margaretta in Castalia, the Tigers finally found their bats. The hit parade was led by the multiple hitting Caroline Estel, Melissa Moberg, St. Clair, and Corso; Huron trounced the Polar Bears 13-3. Shortstop Lauren Volz knocked in three RBIs while Abbey Cook scored three times in the winning effort. On Saturday, Warren got her chance to take the mound in the doubleheader played in Vermilion against the Sailors. She pitched both ends and went 1-1 with 16 Ks on the afternoon. “Olivia pitched a good game (game one 4-3 loss) and should have got the win, but defense let her down,” said

Coach Everman. “When Olivia takes the ball, we need to do a better job getting her run support and play better defense behind her.” In the second game, a 5-1 Tiger win, Warren finally got the run support she deserved. Led by Kelsey Koehler, who had a great week at the plate, Huron ground out 10 hits and three walks. Corso scored twice while Kate Webber knocked in two runs. Volz, Moberg and Jessie Allen also had RBIs.

Hayley Corso concentrates on her pitching. She currently has a 6-2 record with more than 100 strikeouts to her credit. Photo by Wendye everman.

Haley Corso, pitching ace for the Huron Tigers Varsity Softball team, set a school record last week for the most strikeouts (22) in a game. She improved her season record to 4-2 (1.18 ERA) with the 12 inning, 2-1 win over St. Mary’s Central Catholic. Haley also leads the team in hitting with a .463 average. Q: First, tell me when you began to play softball and who taught you how to pitch? A: I began playing softball when I was 7 years old in the Huron Baseball/Softball Program Gremlin league. My stepdad got me started. I started pitching when I was 9 years old at a pitching clinic held over the winter in Huron. Since the age of 10, I mostly worked with John Johnston, who is our varsity pitching coach, but I have also worked with Dave Leffew, who is the pitching coach for Ashland University. Q: Which do you prefer, pitching or playing outfield? Why? A: I definitely love pitching. I feel more in control of the game when I pitch. But it is always nice to play the outfield. It is more relaxed for me. And I love to bat, also! Q: What other activities do you participate in outside of school? A: I play softball year-round, so there isn’t much time for other activities. When I’m not playing ball, I do have a job as a certified lifeguard at the Great Wolf Lodge. I will be working there over the summer full-time. When I’m not playing softball or working, I love spending time with my friends and hanging out. Q: What are your plans after graduation? A: I plan on attending Baldwin-Wallace College, double majoring in athletic training and exercise science. I will also be playing softball in college. Q: What do you think will be your favorite memory of Huron? A: Just living in Huron has created great memories. I love this town and my school. It would be hard to forget little Huron! Q: Tell me something that you want to try/see/go to that

you haven’t done yet and why? A: I would really love to go to Italy. I am Italian, and would love to explore some of my heritage. Hopefully I will be able to study abroad there. That would be a dream come true.

Fast Track Rehab is different than other rehab programs; Parkvue’s certified rehabilitation registered nurses and therapy team provide a holistic approach, which promotes a patient’s comfort and pain relief while offering the comforts of home during his/her recovery. Fast Track Rehab is structured to create daily progress, build confidence, and ensure the patient makes the most of time in therapy.

“It is so nice to visit with everyone and know that everyone is doing well after leaving Parkvue.,” said Sharon Dircks, Director of Nursing. An added bonus for the fast track rehab patients are the friendships developed during their stay. It is not uncommon for a person that returned home to call Parkvue to chat with staff and other residents and Bob Stephenson and Tracy Clark, Facility Liaison.

Gardening with Mary Growing Parsley in Your Garden Mary Strayer, Master Gardener At some speaking engagements recently, I have been asked several questions about parsley and how to grow it in the home garden. First, parsley is a biennial, cooler temperature lover that makes a great edible edition to both patio pots, as well as planted in the garden.

Serving Our Community Since 1902

In our USDA Zone 5, parsley at times survives outside over winter. This last winter was particularly mild, with heavy snow

cover for long periods of time. When the snow melted about a month ago now, the parsley was alive and well underneath. I don’t get too excited about that, as usually it grows beautifully for a month or so, and then goes to seed, and the flavor becomes very bitter and unusable in cooking. The answer, then, is to watch around the area where the parsley was planted last year and look for new tiny sprouts. Those little sprouts will grow to wonderful plant over the course of the summer. This past year, however, I had planted two parsley plants in a tall display pot for the patio. This pot was filled with red flowering Iron Cross Oxalis, Ipomoea ‘Sunrise Serenade’ (morning glory). The parsley was used for the taller filler, and the combo was wonderful. That pot was kept inside in a totally unheated room, un-watered, but in light for the entire summer. As soon as the warming trend started, the parsley was up and growing. As of the writing of this text, the plants were 6 inches tall already. Parsley comes in two different varieties, flat-leaved and curly-leaved. Under normal growing conditions, parsley grows to a foot tall. Last summer, in the garden the parsley grew to 3 feet tall, and in the pot, 18 inches tall. Nutritionally, parsley has a very high vitamin A and C plus mineral content. It is also knows to be very effective at removing toxins from the body, as well as fighting bad breath. Today, we use parsley to flavor salads and put on baked potatoes, and it is used extensively in many of the herbal blends sold for huge prices in our local grocery stores. Plant parsley in full sun, the soil well drained yet moist, with high organic matter content. This means don’t let it stand in water for long periods of time, and use compost in the hole or row when you plant parsley. Parsley has a long tap root, which means once established, don’t keep trying to transplant it to various locations in the garden. Once is has reached 6 inches tall, you can begin harvesting for table use. Snip off around the sides of the plant, leaving the top to continue growing. If we have a really hot summer with many days over 85 degrees, mulch heavily to keep the roots a bit cooler, and you should be able to enjoy until heavy frost. Happy gardening.
