Con Agra Demolition Update ts n e v S E f o WORK e l u FIRE N d e Sch:15-2:30 RST SIRE EN

The Community is pleased to announce the long awaited demolition of the former ConAgra site has moved into its final stage. Commencing Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. the massive sevenstory Grain Warehouse and contiguous eleven-story Header House buildings will be brought down simultaneously by controlled implosion. The implosion will be accompanied by several other events to properly commemorate this historic moment in the Firelands. Burdue & Associates of Sandusky, OH has subcontracted for the implosion work with world renowned explosive expert Advanced Explosives Demolition (AED) of Tensed, ID. Two smaller buildings were successfully demolished mechanically this week in preparation for the main implosion in January. Similarly, all of the concrete silos will be mechanically demolished the week before and week after the implosion. Once on the ground the remaining materials will be crushed and the city will begin work with the private development market to redevelop the site in an effort to stimulate investment in its downtown core. Huron City Manager, Andy White, has been working towards this day for over two years. “I am excited with the prospect of finishing the project of cleaning the ConAgra site.” White said. “This is the beginning of a whole new phase in the development of the City of Huron.” Activities planned for the Sunday event include a fireworks display for the public and a VIP viewing area. There are other activities in the planning stages. Individuals interested in the VIP viewing area should contact the Huron Chamber of Commerce for tickets. Tickets are available for $50.00 and offer the closest perspective to the activity. The proceeds collected will be donated to two local charities, Huron Parks and Recreation Foundation and the Huron Food Pantry. The VIP area is being managed by two local agencies, the Huron Chamber of Commerce and Fish Huron Ohio. Access to the Huron River bridge will be prohibited to traffic, including pedestrian and mo-

Fisher-Titus and Premiere Theater to Offer a Sensory Friendly Trip to the Movies Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s Autism Spectrum Kids program (ASK) has teamed up with Premiere Theater in Norwalk to bring families and children with autism and other disabilities a unique private showing of the movie “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.” The movie will be adapted to be a “sensory friendly” film, and will be shown at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7 at Premiere Theater, 50 Theater Drive, Norwalk. Cost per ticket is $5.50. Children on the autism spectrum and with other disabilities can be oversensitive to light and sound, making it difficult for them to enjoy a typical movie showing. “During sensory friendly films the sound is turned down, the lights remain on, and there are no previews or trailers,” said Lindsey Soisson, speech-language pathologist and Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s special program

coordinator. “These modifications create a sensory friendly environment that will decrease the likelihood that the child will become overstimulated.” In regular movie showings, children are expected to remain seated and stay still and quiet for up to two hours, a task that can be very difficult for children on the autism spectrum. “At our sensory friendly film, children will be able to talk, sing, dance, walk around, move and take a break as needed,” said Soisson. Children will be able to bring in their own gluten-free, casein-free, or other special snacks if on restricted diets, but the concession stand will also be open. “We realize that children with autism and other disabilities have unique challenges in regards to social and community activities,

and often may not get to join their families and friends at the theater,” Soisson said. “This type of adapted showing gives these children the opportunity to enjoy a movie with their families in a safe and accepting environment.” For more information on the sensory friendly showing of “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” or any of Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s pediatric programs, contact Lindsey Soisson at 419-663-1975, Ext. 3040. Introduced to the community in 2001, ASK is a program of Fisher-Titus Medical Center’s Pediatric Therapy Department designed to help families and children living with autism spectrum disorder. The program offers educational seminars, referral resources, phone consultation, outreach programs, classes for children and families, and promotion of autism awareness.

ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY PROGRAM

If any group or organization is interested in volunteering to keep Ohio roads litter free and beautiful, the Ohio Department of Transportation has made it easy to start an Adopt-A-Highway program in your local area. The program works by having groups adopt a two mile stretch of an interchange along a

state route, a U.S. highway, or an interstate. Groups are asked to pick up trash a minimum of four times per year. The Ohio Department of Transportation will provide safety training, trash bags, disposable safety vests and two signs to be used at the beginning of each two mile section. The department asks that this be a volunteer program and those who participate should not be paid for their services. For those interested, the Ohio Department of Transportation has a website that provides further information on signing up for this program. Please visit the site at www.dot.state.oh.us. 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.

Parkvue Place Announces Big Winner Parkvue announced resident Genevieve Spaid as the winner of the Christmas Lottery Tree Fundraiser this week. Spaid’s tree – a pre-lit, four-foot, lime green holiday spectacle – was covered in scratch-off lottery tickets valued at more than $265. Tickets sold out more than a month ago and generated tons of excitement for residents and team members alike at Parkvue, an exceptional provider of homes and health care for older adults in Sandusky. Residents joined in the fun of selling the tickets and were eager to help raise money for such a good cause. Marian Koch, a current resident at Parkvue Place raised over $600 with help from friends. Parkvue, a nonprofit organization owned by United Church Homes, applied all of the proceeds to Parkvue’s Resident Life Enrichment Fund. All of the residents of

Parkvue benefit from the Life Enrichment Fund, receiving services and programs to enhance the quality of their lives.

Schools Woodlands 5th Grade Science Students “Touch” the Moon For most of us, studying space in school meant that we memorized the order of the planets outward from the sun. Not the case in Leah LaCrosse’s 5th grade Science class at Woodlands Intermediate School. We still have fun with 1st Visit Receive a “My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos!” (Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet.) But, the learning has developed into a more dynamic process.

What a great experience to chat face to face over the computer with an expert! The students were thrilled and had phenomenal questions ready. And, this is just the beginning! The second half of the unit will include work with robotic arms from NASA, building recycled robots, using our iPads to build electronic postcards from another planet, and working with the Sally Ride Science foundation and the GRAIL satellite (orbiting the moon) to take images of the moon that we chose. In our science classes, we will be working hard to become scientists of the future that have the necessary problem solving skills to make a difference!
