Huron City Schools Food Service Director Recognized at Conference Huron City Schools is pleased to announce Mrs. Sue Whitaker has been recognized as “Food Service Director of the Year” for the state of Ohio. Mrs. Whitaker traveled to Opryland in Nashville, TN to the School Nutrition Association Conference on July 10 through the 14th to receive her award along with representatives from the other forty-nine states across the country. A Food Service Director is nominated for this award by their staff based on meeting several criteria. Criteria needed to receive the award includes: school involvement, association involvement, community involvement, program development and enhancement and staff development. “It is nice to know I was nominated by my staff and supported by the administration,” stated Mrs. Whitaker. “We have a great team!” “Overall this was a great experience. It was a pleasure to represent Huron City Schools and the State of Ohio at a luncheon of 8,000 people in Nashville. I sat next to the award recipient from Alaska and walked the runway with a cowboy!” Mrs. Whitaker is in her 12th year as the Food Service Director at Huron City Schools and

her 28th year in the District. She has 15 staff members she refers to as her “team” who eagerly waits to serve their customers. Mrs. Whitaker’s biggest challenge is to incorporate the healthier demands and the increased portion sizes of the current lunch program standards while keeping the customers happy and eating. “The school lunch program essentially needs to be a self-supporting business,” explains Mrs. Whitaker. “To accommodate 1,200 regular customers under the current guidelines can be an interesting planning experience.” Recent positive changes to the program Huron City Schools, Food Service Director, have included the 5 week cycle menu for Sue Whitaker and Nancy Rice, National all of the schools.

Around Town FROM THE BENCH State Identification Cards

By Judge Bill Steuk, Huron Municipal Court The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) has recently issued a statement again encouraging parents and guardians to obtain State Identification (ID) cards for their young children, an ID which includes a digital photograph. The State ID cards can be used as a tool to help locate children reported abducted or missing. The BMV states that the photographs and information can be quickly accessed by law enforcement if a child is reported missing or abducted. When a State ID is issued,

photos become part of the statewide Operator’s License/ Identification database and can be readily accessed by law enforcement officials through the Ohio Attorney General’s secure website, the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway. The ID card can get accurate information into the hands of law enforcement, media and the public in a quick, efficient manner. If necessary, within minutes, the digital photo can be sent to Sheriff ’s Departments, Ohio State Highway Patrol cruisers, the Ohio Missing Children’s Clearing House, Ohio Amber Plan, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and to police departments and media outlets across the country. The State ID cards cost Eight Dollars and fifty cents ($8.50) and are good up to four (4) years. Parents of young children may want to renew the ID cards periodically to include a more up-to-date photo of the child. There is no minimum age for obtaining an Ohio ID card. These ID cards can be obtained at any local Deputy Registrar’s office for the BMV. Anyone desiring an application for a child must present at the Registrar’s office a primary

and secondary document to prove: 1. Name and date of birth 2. Social security number (if ever assigned). Note, at least one primary and one secondary document must be provided by the applicant. Examples of the two (2) documents necessary to obtain a State ID card for a child would be a certified birth certificate for the child and a social security card. If you would like further information, please visit the BMV’s website located at or call our local BMV office. 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.

The City of Huron Parks & Recreation Department is pleased to announce both Lake Front Park and Fabens Park have new drinking fountains available for their patrons. Chris Basting, Parks Maintenance Manager and his staff installed the two pedestal mounted drinking fountains in the parks earlier this summer. Financial assistance from the Wightman/ Wieber Charitable Foundation made this project possible. Funding was sought and obtained to help cover the costs associated with replacing the drinking fountains. The drinking fountains that were replaced dated back to when the parks were first developed. Fabens Park and Lake Front are both heavily patronized parks. Amenities in Fabens Park include: 9 baseball/softball fields, 5 tennis courts, 2 batting cages, a nature trail, a playground area, 3 shelters, picnic tables, grills, two drinking fountains, a concession stand and rest rooms. Fabens Park is the home to the community baseball program, school tennis teams and many walkers, joggers, and avid playground goers. Lake Front Park is used in a different capacity. Amenities include: a playground, gazebo, picnic tables, grills, a drinking fountain, and rest rooms. Lake Front Park is usually filled with picnickers, beach-goers, families playing on the playground and children and pets running in the green space. Lake Front Park is situ-

ated very close to the base of the mile long Lighthouse Pier. Many park-goers take in the walk out the pier as an added activity while visiting the park. The drinking fountains selected for both of these sites are pet friendly fountains. Many visitors to Lake Front and Fabens Park often bring their pets to take in the social recreation. These parks offer “MuttMitts” encouraging the presence of pets on their premises. “We are very appreciative of the Wightman/Wieber Foundation who deemed our project worthy of funding. They have helped us in the past and we greatly appreciate their support. Without them we would not have accomplished this project,” stated Basting. The “Goals of the Huron Parks & Recreation Department” is to provide a safe, clean environment and to continually improve the quality of the facilities for people of all ages and abilities.

Scavenger Hunt Gets Students Thinking About College More than 60 juniors from Sandusky High School and EHOVE Career Center will descend on the Bowling Green State University Firelands College campus on Thursday, Aug. 18 to participate in the Tech Prep Welcome Picnic and Scavenger Hunt. Sponsored by the BGSU Firelands College Access Program, the event is held to give area students the opportunity to learn about college in general, the BGSU Firelands campus, and the Tech Prep program. Tech Prep is a federally-funded program for high school juniors and seniors that blends advanced technology with rigorous academic courses. The program also seeks to provide a seamless transition between high school and college. Students in Tech Prep can earn up to an average of 15 college credits by the time they graduate from high school and approximately 85 percent of local Tech Prep high school graduates continue their education at the collegiate level.

“As these young men and women begin to finish their high school career, it is critical that we continually remind them of the importance of a college education and encourage them to seek post-secondary degrees,” said David Janik, manager of the College Access Program and Tech Prep at BGSU Firelands. Data from the US Census Bureau shows that the higher the educational degree an individual completes, the more earning potential he/she will have throughout a lifetime. Individuals who complete a bachelor’s degree will earn nearly $1 million more than a high school graduate throughout their life. On Aug. 18, the high school students will be joined by parents and families members as they tour the campus, meet the staff and current Tech Prep students, and learn about the opportunities which are available through the Tech Prep program - all in an entertaining scavenger hunt environment.

39th Annual Antiques, Collectibles Arts and Crafts in the Park The Friends of Harbour Town of Vermilion is presenting their last summer show of Antiques, Collectibles, Artists and handmade wares in Vermilion’s downtown Farmers Exchange Place Park, Rt. 6 and 60 this Saturday, August 6th, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This is a beautiful time of the year to browse among the wares in the historic park nestled on the banks of the Vermilion River in the center of Harbour Town 1837 Historic District. Wave to the sailors sailing in their boats. Rent a kayak for fun or drop anchor to come and see the show in the park. Stroll leisurely beneath shade trees, sit upon the benches within the streetscape and park. Do stroll to the beach and look over the ever changing Lake Erie and the historic nautical river. The Mystic Bell Paddle Wheel Boat just two blocks away will be presenting their narrated water cruises at 2 and 4 PM. If you have not taken time to experience a ride on the river please do so as it is a real relaxing and learning experience; worth your time in Vermilion. This is a special time for all visiting tourists to bring the family downtown and take time to say hello with the park vendors and shopkeepers; what a variety. Luther Marquart and Mark Pape will be within the park to teach the children and adults the art of knot tying and sharing the history of Ship Building (including Vermilion Schooners) of yesteryear. Mark Pape assures us he has enough knot line for the children and all to work their knots and take them home. Luther just celebrated his 95th birthday and has been with the event for 39 years. Take time to learn from him. We will be having at the show several new booth vendors, especially many antiques dealers, Ellen OHara, Carolyn Hill, Sandra Johnson, Marlene Gibson, Sally Blue, Meemaw’s Treasurers, Ellen and Rob Parker, Sally Catrone, Georgia Moore, Katherine Smith coming from all over Ohio. You will see Tom Kilbane, Dave Pavlak, the artists, and John Koscinsk the well known photographer, beach glass and a large variety of hand made designed jewelry, children’s bows and hair items, African clothing; look for that special collectors item or gift. Tom Roth, the honey man, will be there with all his products which are freshly packaged and Baba will be back with his African Shea Lotion Products that he

has made in his African Village. Baba stated that he had 60 e-mail orders for the products after being with the June Show here in Vermilion. There is so much to share and the excitement is high. The park will be filled and vendors had to be turned away. Bring a chair and sit in the park amongst the colorful show of flowers, to talk with your friends. Walk the streetscape and join in on conversations with the Shoppe owners, residents, and tourists alike. The downtown is the place to stroll with your homemade candy, a scoop of ice cream, a special piece of pie, or that delicious luncheon or dinner; all within three short blocks of the center of the Harbour Town 1837 Historic District of downtown Vermilion. Most of the stores and eateries are handicap accessible. The park and public restroom is also handicap accessible. Enjoy the Sights and Sounds of our beautiful historic nautical community; it is truly a “Touch of New England on Lake Erie”.

Health & Wellness FTMC Health Care Hero

September 18, 2011 1:00-4:00 Moose Lodge $3.00 Admission Vendors, Venues & More HURON HOMETOWN NEWS GREAT PRESS FOR A GREAT LAKE PLACE

Jan Phillips of Norwalk was recently among 76 health care heroes who were recognized during the OHA Recognition Dinner, in conjunction with the association’s Annual Meeting at the Hilton Columbus at Easton. Fisher-Titus Medical Center nominated Phillips for this year’s Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year Award, presented by the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA). Every Ohio hospital was invited to nominate one person for the Health Care Worker of the Year award, created in 1996 to honor a hospital employee who demonstrates leadership, reflects the values and ideals of Ohio’s health care facilities, goes above and beyond the call of duty, gives back to the community and has overcome odds to succeed. Jan Philips has been a licensed physical therapist for 33 years and a member of the Fisher-Titus Medical Center Physical Therapy team for 31 years. In the clinical setting, she has been instrumental in organizing and expanding Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s water therapy program. She has also touched the lives of more than 250 physical therapy students either as a clinical instructor or educational coordinator for the Medical Center’s student programs. Phillips is a certified Mulligan Practitioner and is a certified clinical instructor with the American Physical Therapy Association.   “Jan can be described as a very kind, caring woman,” said

Lorna Strayer, senior vice president of administration and business development at Fisher-Titus. “She is someone who wants to help in any way she can. Jan loves a challenge and tries to learn from every person she encounters whether it be a fellow co-worker, a patient or a student.” Phillips said she was drawn to physical therapy as a profession because she loves being able to help others. As a teenager, Phillips thought her only options for careers were school teacher, nurse or secretary. Then her high school track coach, who was also a radiologic technologist at Fisher-Titus Medical Center, introduced her to physical therapy. She volunteered at three different area facilities and decided physical therapy is what God wanted her to do. So, after high school she furthered her career at The Ohio State University and became a licensed physical therapist. Since then, she has embraced her profession wholeheartedly. “No day is the same. I still enjoy learning. I learn from my patients, my fellow co-workers and my students,” Phillips said. “In a sense, we are all teachers.” FTMC’s Physical Therapy Department has been working with 10 different college programs for more than 25 years to provide clinical experience for both physical therapy and physical therapy assistant students. Jan Phillips, who is a certified clinical instructor with the American Physical Therapy Association, has been at the heart of that program coordinating, instructing or facilitating more than 250 students. “Jan is not only a great educator, but she is also a wonderful facilitator of their overall Fisher-Titus experience, said Joyce Hill, Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s director of rehabilitation. “Jan is detail-oriented and intuitive, matching a student with a physical therapist so that the student achieves the goals he or she wants from a clinical experience. She also serves as a mentor for students going as far as housing students who did not have anywhere to stay while they were doing their clinical rotation.” Phillips said she is continually reading about different techniques to help her patients. In addition, she studies her patients and her co-workers describe her as the MacGyver of the Physical Therapy Department. Similar to the TV show character, Jan is able to solve complex problems with everyday materials. Her goal in “fixing” the problem is always less pain and more function for the patient. She has created homemade traction systems, exercise bands, towel rolls, etc. “She not only listens to her patients as they tell her about their pain, she also looks for the fine details and uses those clues to get to the ultimate goal…helping them feel better,” Hill said.

Time to Travel! Mary Strayer, Master Gardener, Author Summer is a great time to travel to nearby gardens, and thanks to the Forest City Rose Society, I had the opportunity this week to visit Fellows Riverside Gardens in Youngstown. The trip took about 2 1/2 hours, and the gardens are open from 9-5 Tuesday through Sunday. When arriving at the gardens you will notice a very large building, which is the entrance. It’s a very new building, recently built to give visitors access to the teaching rooms, sales room, library, and cafeteria. You may call ahead if you have a group to have a guide lead you through the gardens and explain the plantings. There’s 60 acres of gardens, including the White Garden, Perennial Garden, Modern Rose Garden, Herb and Fragrance gardens, Blue Garden, and many others make up the 21 different garden to view. Most striking was the easy access to view the gardens, and the pathways set up to handle handicap persons in wheelchairs. Of course, not all gardens are handicap accessible, but many are. There are many benches throughout the gardens for your enjoyment as well. If you are a gardener, or one who just looks to look at gardens this garden is a worthwhile destination. Consider taking children as well, as there are children’s attractions within the gardens. Consider visiting the many gardens of Ohio, as traveling in our state not only helps our economy, but lifts your own spirits to see the wonderful sites these gardens offer. Happy viewing, and happy gardening.
