As the dust begins to settle on the proposals of Governor Kasich’s budget containing reforms on education funding, it is now possible to begin to analyze the potential impact it may have on the future of Huron City Schools. The budget proposals are shifting more of the burden for funding schools from state money to the local tax payers. There are two main areas within Kasich’s budget that will directly reduce the amount of money Huron City Schools will receive. The main loss of revenue to the Huron School’s budget is the state’s decision to accelerate the phase out of personal tangible property tax reimbursement, explained Superintendent Fred Fox. By definition, tangible personal property tax was a business tax. A tax on equipment and inventory of local businesses, for example, the Akzo Nobel (Glidden), the grain that used to be at the mill, the cars and trucks at Artino Ford, the manufacturing equipment at IAC (Lear). Tangible personal property tax was a local tax, approved by the local voters, collected locally and used almost exclusively for local programs. Many lawmakers and business officials felt

this was a “bad tax”; it limited job growth as it was a burden on businesses. In 2001 the Taft administration made the decision to do away with the tax and replace it with the Commercial Activity Tax (CAT). The CAT tax was to be used to reimburse school districts and municipalities for lost revenue. This reimbursement was originally scheduled to begin to phase out in 2012 and would take eight years to complete. In 2009, an additional two years were added before the phase out was to begin. Kasich’s budget accelerates the phase out to begin in 2012, removing the two year extension and makes the phase out complete in only four years instead of the eight originally budgeted. The shortfall for Huron Schools will result in $1.5 million in lost revenue over a four year period. Overall, the state has converted a local tax to a state tax with the burden to replace the shortfall squarely on the tax payer. The second area within Kasich’s budget that will directly reduce the amount of money Huron Schools will receive is what is referred to as: “foundation”, a direct state support. The Huron Schools will lose $500,000 in “foundation” payments next fall, explained Fox. Half

of these funds from a direct cut and the other half by the loss of stimulus funds which were used to “prop up” the previous budget, he continued. The new allocations were not decided on a per-pupil formula, but rather a “Robin Hood” method of allocation. District wealth was established and monies from the wealthier districts were transferred to poorer districts, he explained. Budget reductions of this size will have a huge impact on the Huron Schools budget as they move forward into the 2011-2012 school year. The district will be making reductions beginning this school year. Several positions will not be renewed and retiring positions will not be replaced. “The district is fortunate to have a surplus of money to be able to operate without making huge cuts in programming and without going directly to voters. But, these cuts in state funding will make it inevitable that the board will have to consider returning to the ballot sooner than planned,” stated Fox. “The Board of Education is always looking to be effective and efficient and present the best education possible to student, yet be fair to the tax payers.”

Around Town Huron Youth Connection

BEHIND THE BADGE National Boat Safety Week By Chief John T. Majoy The week of May 2127 marks the National Boat Safety Week. The Huron Police Department is proud to emphasize this week as a means of promoting safety on the Huron River and Lake Erie. We are reminding boaters to practice safe and responsible boating and to wear your life jackets. On average over 700 people die each year in boating related accidents. Of those, 80% are not wearing lift jackets. Practicing simple safety steps can help save your life and the lives of those boating with you. As a reminder, individuals born on or after January 1, 1982 who operate a boat

powered by greater than 10 horsepower must successfully pass a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators approve boating education course or proficiency exam. This also includes the operation of a personal watercraft. The Huron Police Department’s Harbor Patrol boat will be out patrolling and will be placing emphasis on boating safety. Officers will be available to perform free safety inspections for any and all boaters. Upon successful completion of the inspection, boaters will receive the 2011 Ohio Department of Natural Resources safety sticker to display on their boat. Residents or visitors seeking a free safety inspection of their boat can contact the Huron Police Department at (419) 4334114 or visit our web site at www.cityofhuron.org.

PUBLIC NOTICE The city of Huron, Ohio Service Department announces that traffic flow on Cleveland Road from Waterworks Drive to Rye Beach may be restricted at times for the next 30 days for valve repairs. The valve project is slated to begin 5-16-2011. Any questions concerning this project can be made to the Service Department at 419-433-5000 extension #280.

The Huron Youth Connection is hosting an after-school Open House on Tuesday, May 24th from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. in meeting room A, on the lower level of the Huron Public Library. We’ll have games, bingo, tournaments, lots of finger foods, with fun for all. The entire Huron community is invited. Please join us!

This sale is a popular event, featuring many varieties of annual and perennial plants,fresh from members’ gardens.  New this year is the gazebo, transformed into a Bake Shop,which will have tempting home

baked items. The Specialty Shoppe is not forgotten. Proceeds from the sales are used to beautify our city. During the summer there are many planters sporting colorful flowers. Each month there is a display at the Huron Library created by one or two of the HGC members.  A Christmas tree decorated with  handmade ornaments, is on display in the Huron Library.  Please enjoy our efforts.

USCG Auxiliary and City of Huron Marine Patrol join forces to Host “Ready, Set, Inflate!” Boating safety educators and the general boating public gather on Saturday, May 21 to set a World Record Boating safety educators and members of the boating public invite you to participate in “Ready, Set, Inflate!” Inflatable Life Jacket World Record Day on Saturday, May 21, 2011. Throughout North America and abroad, participants will inflate their life jackets to try and beat last year’s world record of 1,154 participants. Grab your inflatable life jacket and join us on Saturday, May 21st, 2011 at the new Huron Public Access Boat Ramp on Cleveland Road in Huron. Registration begins

at 9:00 AM. Inflation will be at 9:30 AM. There are goodie bags for the first 25 registered participants, and a variety of replacement CO cartridges are available at no cost. You don’t have an inflatable life jacket? Stop by and learn about many styles that are available and watch the “Great Inflate”. Both the USCG Auxiliary and Huron Marine Patrol will offer Free Vessel Safety Checks on site that morning. This World Record Day will help to usher in National Safe Boating Week which runs from May 21 – 27, 2011. The goal of National Safe Boating Week is to educate and

inform the boating public about boating safety, specifically life jackets. The push of always wearing your life jacket when heading out on the water has been the main focus of the campaign for the past few years. To ensure that this event is a success, the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) and Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) have been working with local sponsors and partners in the area. Cabela’s® is once again serving as the national sponsor in the U.S. and boating safety educators and organizations are asked to hold local inflation events in their area. “What better way to inspect and test your

Christ Church to Hold Recital to Showcase Restored Organ By Lisa Yako Christ Episcopal Church, Huron’s oldest church built in 1838, would like to invite the public to their “rebirthing” weekend. The weekend’s events include a meet and greet time at the Huron Yacht Club on Friday, May 20 at 5 PM and a worship service celebration on Sunday, May 22 at 10 AM. The most anticipated event of the weekend will take place on Saturday, May 21 at 2 PM at Christ Church. At that time, there will be a recital to showcase the church’s restored organ. The recital will feature organist, G. James Petersen, Jr., the Christ Church choir, and several soloists. The organ at Christ Church has quite a story to tell. It was constructed by the E. and G. G. Hook & Hastings Co. of Boston, Massachusetts, in 1872 and then was purchased by the Second Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, for $2,500. Apparently in need of a new organ, Second Presbyterian put their organ up for sale in 1911. Christ Church of Huron was in need of a new organ at that time and sent their minister, Edwin W. Todd, to inquire about the organ. The purchase was finalized in 1912 for the cost of $200 which included “crating, draying, setting-up, and tuning” of the organ. Interestingly, the organ was shipped via barge across Lake Erie to Huron. The barge was captained by Charles E. Montague, Junior Wardman of Christ Church.

Safety Town 2011... What is Safety Town? This is one of the most important educational programs for young children who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall. This 2-week (Monday-Thursday, Monday-Thursday) program is a planned curriculum program incorporating classroom activities to familiarize children with the school setting. Safety Town allows children entering Kindergarten to learn safe ways to approach school and everyday situations. The children are taught the basics of fire, water, traffic, and playground safety, as well as poison control, bus behavior and seatbelt importance. Huron Parks and Recreation is fortunate to have help from The Huron Fire & Police Departments, Erie Metroparks, Erie County Environmental Services, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Sandusky Power Squadron/Coastie, and Huron City Schools, who help make this program so successful. In addition, we have outstanding Teachers and Safety Town Teen Counselors who create a wonderful, fun and creative environment for our participants. Last but cer-

tainly not least, Huron Parks and Recreation has been fortunate to have the support of many local businesses that help with sponsorship and/or donations toward our daily snacks/supplies.

Firespike/Odontonema A wonderful place to visit in Florida is the Edison Ford Winter Estates in Ft. Myers, Fla. Not only do you have the opportunity to tour the estates, which are side by side, but you also may tour the gardens. It was while on this tour, I discovered Firespike. This is a lovely large, 3’ tall-2’ wide plant, but it has lovely plumes of a medium tone of lavender. The plant’s foliage is herbaceous, and the leaves smooth textured. It blooms there in late winter to early spring, but when brought north, it will bloom all summer. Firespike is considered a tropical plant, which does well in sun to partial shade. The plant attracts bees, butterflies and birds, and only needs normal watering, with a warning not to over water. Propagation can be done by seed, or by new wood cuttings. This plant is brought to you attention because it can be pruned back and kept over winter here in Ohio. Please be encouraged to try new plants, it is both fun and educational. I purchased my plant in February, and it is still blooming in my home at the time of this writing. More information about Firespike can be found online at www.Davesgarden.com. You may also purchase your own Firespike online as well. Happy Gardening.

Schools Progress Made at the Woodlands Children’s Gardens This past Saturday, 16 Huron residents took time out of their busy schedules to help pull weeds and plant marigolds at the Woodlands Children’s Gardens. The volunteers included both students and adults. The student volunteers were: Jacob Clark, Madissen Crow, Keegan Green, Maria DiVita, Stevie Holbrook, Elizabeth Mast, Molly Lehrer, Jordan Prosser, Hannah Blackwell, and Gretchen

Blackwell. The adult volunteers were: Tim Wallick, Sandy Schuh, Debbie Phinney, Daniel Slife, and Lisa Yako. Everyone in attendance jumped right in and started working, and all enjoyed a delightful time in the garden. Thank you to all of these volunteers. Though the many volunteers on Saturday did make much progress at the Woodlands Gardens, there is still work to be done. If you have never

seen the gardens, you would be impressed at the size! Additional work is needed to pull weeds and do some spring planting. The maintenance of this garden is done solely by volunteers. Please contact Lisa Yako at 419433-6233 or lyako@bex.net if you would like to schedule some time at the gardens. Remember, many hands make light work!

Students of Mr. Dale Casper’s 6th grade gifted Language Arts class launch rockets after studying the memoir, October Sky by Homer Hickam.

Sixth Grade Gifted Language Arts Class Soars to New Heights The sixth grade gifted language arts class at Woodlands Intermediate School had taken learning to new heights last week. After reading and studying the book, October Sky by Homer Hickam, the students built rockets and launched them on Tuesday, May 10th. Mr. Dale Casper, the Gift Intervention Specialist of the class has taught this lesson the past five years. Every year Casper had envisioned a lesson enrichment consisting of a rocket launch. This year it was made possible through grant money he was able to secure from New Horizons through North Point Educational Service Center. The rockets are reusable with the exception of needing a new engine with each new launch. The Huron students were able to parallel their experience of “success does not come without failure” to that of Hickam’s nostalgic memoir.

Each successful launch the angle was measured and the height was then calculated and recorded. The launch was the last of the projects associated with the memoir. A complete book study had been done prior to the launch. Additional assignments included: scientific report on building and launching the rockets, compare & contrast summary of the book, October Sky, and the movie, Rocket Boys, content quizzes, discussion groups, and over 300 new vocabulary words. The story details the rocket launching adventures of Homer Hickam and his friends during their teenage years in Coalwood, West Virginia, in the 1950s. Student, Augie Beckman stated the most important thing he learned from the book was, “never give up and always try your hardest.” Classmate, Maria DeVita learned, “if someone says you can’t…you actually

can.” The book is very encouraging to be who you want to be and do what you want to do, explained student, Will Steuk. He thought it was a very good book and would definitely recommend it to a friend. Classmate, Aubrey Baumler liked the use of science, math, trigonometry and scientific method mixed together throughout the story. The sixth grade gifted language arts students have spent the last two years with Mr. Casper as their teacher. They wanted the opportunity to thank him for his leadership and all the other enrichment opportunities he has provided them throughout their education. As the school year begins to wind down, symbolically October Sky and the rocket launch is an appropriate lesson for the sixth grade students to blast off on as they head over to McCormick Junior High next year. Mission accomplished!

Huron Hometown News | Thursday, May 19, 2011

Sports Lady Tiger’s On A Roll After a rough start for the Lady Tiger’s varsity softball team, the young women are peaking at right time. Last week, Coach Everman’s team stunned all winning the local sectional title by first defeating Western Reserve and now, Margaretta 4-2. Both teams had much superior records compared to Huron’s 10-16 overall record. All of this while playing a brutally packed schedule due to Mother Nature’s inclement weather. Huron has gone 5-1 over the last week and a half, culminating with a convincing run ruled victory over the Oak Harbor Rockets, 15-4. The Tigers feasted on the oppositions pitching, collecting 21 hit in all. Shortstop senior Lauren Volz went 4 for 4 (all doubles), scoring three times and knocking in four RBI’s. Freshman Amanda Vacca also went 4 for 4 and scored a team high five times. Kate Weber, Morgan Asberry, and Renee St. Clair all had three hits a piece to pace the Tiger onslaught. Pitcher Karissa Shepherd was very steady on the

mound picking up another win. But the biggest of win of the year thus far was the 4-2 sectional title game against the Polar Bears in Castalia. Just the night before, the Tigers had taking down Margaretta the night before in Huron in SBC play. On this day, the Polar Bears opened the scoring with two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. After being shut out of a great scoring opportunity the inning before, the Tigers made up for it the very next inning by bringing in all four of their runs to take the lead permanently. Junior Kelsey Koehler singled in Volz. Then, St. Clair tied the game at two a piece on a wild pitch. An error allowed Koehler to score third run, while Shepherd knocked in pinch runner Megan McNulty for the final run of the game. Pitcher Olivia Warren got the big win for the Tigers and she was nicely aided by another no error performance by the Huron defense.

Reader Advisory: the National Trade Association we belong to has purchased the following classifieds. Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
