County service building has structural issues By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

Building Maintenance Supervisor Ed Eick updated commissioners about the condition of the service building located at the Route 9 communications tower owned by the county. Eick said that structure issues have been discovered with the walls and the floor. It was reported there is a 1/8 inch to 3/4 inch gap with the walls. The floor has developed a crack that runs throughout the building. The largest crack is in the middle of the room but many cracks extend from the center. Crack sealers have not worked and Eick discovered that ground hogs digging under the building is the cause for damage. “Moisture is into the building and will be a major issue. The next concern is the floor of the building,” said Eick. He advised that commissioners get quotes to build a new structure stating the current building is beyond repair, in his opinion. There is a 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch gap in the corners. All the corners are broke and there is a one inch wide crack in the floor, according to Eick. Commissioners agreed to seek quotes with estimates of repair costs and the cost to build a new building. Spencer Bendle returned to commissioners regarding the vacating of a township road that was never developed. The area under debate runs behind a group of homes on Breezewood Drive. The engineer’s office has been to the site and placed stakes to mark the road right of ways for

the county. The road was never developed and never planned to be developed, according to Bendle. The new owner of one of the homes in the development had been using the area as a road, driving on it and tearing up the turf and yard areas of his neighbor. His deed states that it is a township road, according to Bendle. Bendle did turn in a petition to commissioners from all the homeowners in the neighborhood except for the new resident. Commissioners advised the next step would be for Bendle to pay to have the road surveyed. If the road is vacated by the county, the land contained in that area would legally become the property of the homeowner. “It hasn’t been used in 75 years (since the neighborhood was developed),” said Bendle. In other business commissioners: - ADVISED the courthouse will be closed Monday, Nov. 12 in observance of Veteran’s Day. - SIGNED the grant application for the Victims Assistance Program for a total of $67,500. The grant is through Sept. 30. - WILL accept bids up to 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 3 for Project 3 for the installation of three septic systems through the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund. - SIGNED the lease agreement for four new vehicles for the sheriff’s department with Huntington Bank. - RECEIVED the dog pound report with eight impounded, three adopted out, five redeemed, none destroyed, one citation issued for no license and no citations issued for running at large.

County voter turnout Carrollton man killed by train-pedestrian accident exceeds 56 percent A Carrollton man died after being struck by a train shortly after his shift ended Thursday night, Nov. 1. According to a statement by the Salem Police Department Friday, Nov. 2, Carroll County resident Frank Leasure had just ended his shift at American Standard on South Ellsworth Avenue in Salem just before midnight. He and other workers at the plant use a parking lot that is across the train tracks from the company. According to the police report, it is a common practice for employees to cross these tracks to and from their vehicles. Leasure had reportedly stopped and waited for a westbound Norfolk Southern train to pass. It appeared Leasure had allegedly went inside the gate which was down, with red lights flashing on the signal at New Garden Avenue. When the westbound train had passed, Leasure allegedly

stepped out and into the path of an eastbound Norfolk Southern train that he did not see or hear, according to the Salem Police Department’s report. Leasure was struck by the second train. Salem First Responders were first to the scene with KLG Ambulance arriving shortly after. Leasure died at the scene. Salem Police are still investigating the incident and Norfolk Southern has an investigator at the scene, as well. An autopsy was to be conducted by the Columbiana County coroner. The Carrollton Police Department assisted with the notification of the family. The Salem Police Department advised all drivers to stop at railroad crossings that have red lights flashing, and if the railroad crossing arms are down, do not go across or through them. Please wait until the arms are raised, the lights are off, and traveling across the railroad tracks is safe, officials asked.

Commissioners consider clock tower repairs By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent County Commissioners are considering their options as to what course to take to make badly needed repairs to the courthouse bell tower. Lauren Burge and Alice Sloan of Perspectus Historical Architecture of Akron shared with commissioners and Building Maintenance Supervisor Ed Eick the results of their findings after inspection of the clock bell tower at the courthouse. Commissioner Bob Wirkner said commissioners have been making repairs as funds were available in recent years but they seemed to be only applying band aids and not addressing the basic issues of repairs needed. The inspection of the tower was done not only by physically climbing the tower and inspecting visually, but the architects also used a drone to provide video footage of the numerous problems found with the structure. Commissioners have struggled for several years to find ways to keep the rain and run off from draining into the tower causing more damage. The actual size of the tower is very misleading to most residents. The tower sits on the roof and is five stories high. But the way the outer edges of the roof are constructed, only the top three stories are clearly visible. The structure is 64 feet tall. The bottom story is below the visible roof line from the street. The third and fourth floor stories are where the bell is located (covered by large louvered windows), and the top story is the clock and dome. Photos, drone footage, and a PowerPoint presentation showed commissioners that there are gutters with standing water, deteriorated windows, most areas with peeling paint, holes at the clock base, broken downspouts, a line of crushed masonry at the bottom of the top level, rotting timbers, masonry repairs, and much more. The good news is that the team was able to identify the source of water getting in and under the louvered windows that has caused a great deal of damage. And it is fixable. The estimated cost of all repairs is between $932,489 and $1,072,362. “The problem with that is we

have sticker shock. We don’t have a million dollars,” said Commissioner Bob Wirkner. “The biggest part of the cost is getting up there to the highest point. I think you should tackle as much as you can at one time due to the high cost of the equipment needed to get up there,” said Burge. The largest share of the budget is for the crane for workers to reach the top. The lower levels can be repaired using scaffolding. The cost would be about $250,000 to rent the equipment needed to reach the top levels. “This was much more than anticipated,” said Eick. “The bid climate is terrible right now. Contractors are really busy and costs are coming in high right now,” advised Burge. Burge said it would be best if the county did the work that was at the top of the tower all at the same time in order to save money and not have to rent all the big equipment a second time. Wirkner questioned if the project could be divided into phases to make it more affordable for the county budget. “We need options at this point. The courthouse is the hub of all activity. We have to preserve it. But until the auditor certifies our budget for next year, we don’t know what we will have available,” said Wirkner. Wirkner said the average citizen doesn’t realize how tall that tower is. He would also like to do what is needed all at once but if the money is not available that isn’t an option. “It’s a lot. But we do need to preserve it,” said commissioner Lewis Mickley. The courthouse was built in 1885 and replaced a small brick courthouse that was built in 1835 and sat in front of the current courthouse location. When the courthouse was built in 1885 some residents objected to the size and the cost, which was $109,900 and they called it the “Palace of Justice”. The tower’s dome has four clock faces and on top of the dome was a statue of a woman called the Goddess of Liberty. The statue was removed and replaced with a tall spire by the WPA in 1935. The spire was removed in 1949 and replaced with a county-village police radio tower. Following further discussion, Wirkner asked Burge to provide them with a list that prioritizes the repairs that are needed.

Malvern Park to receive major upgrades to the track By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent Brown Local Schools Superintendent Scott Bowling confirmed plans with Malvern council to make major upgrades to the track in the park in the spring. Bowling says the plan is to have the track rubberized beginning in March. They will construct a fence around the track and many trees will also be taken down that are around the track. He said he had a quote of $3,200 to take down the trees and to chip the limbs and stumps. “The school district is paying for it. If we’re spending $40,000 for the fence, we are going to make sure it is protected and no tree limbs are going to fall on it,” said Bowling. Bowling agreed to submit a written plan with the specific details about the project to council at the next meeting.

Grand jury to meet Friday A total of 20 cases are scheduled to be presented to the Carroll County grand jury which convenes at 8:30 a.m. this Friday, according to Carroll County Prosecuting Attorney Steven D. Barnett.

The construction of a dog park was brought up again by the park committee chairman Matt Moreno. It was reported insurance has been contacted and council learned there would be no extra charge for having a dog park. Street superintendent Steve Felton asked if water was going to be made available for a potential dog park, because that would limit where the park could be located. The issue was brought up before, but questions about who will clean up the dog park, how will different sized dogs and varying breeds using the park at the same time be handled, and other issues were not addressed. It was also questioned if dogs are not allowed in the actual park, how will they have access to the dog park which is proposed to be located within the park. In other business, council: - WILL be picking up leaves that are left on curb strips

through the end of November. No trash, brush or limbs will be picked up. Leaves that are raked into the street will not be picked up. - HEARD that medical insurance will increase $30 a month for 2019 which is a 5 percent increase. The cost will be split between the village and the employees. - APPROVED on the third reading an ordinance to regulate trees and shrubbery within the public streets and sidewalks of the village. It details what is permitted to be planted in the curb strips and how trees must be maintained. - LEARNED 70 tons of salt has been delivered. - DISCUSSED keeping a seasonal employee through the winter at reduced hours. - HEARD that the new climbing wall has been installed at the park. Two other new pieces of play equipment will be installed soon.

Guest Column - Student Led Conferences By Todd Herman Superintendent,

Conotton Valley Schools

Students at Conotton Valley Schools participated in Student Led Conferences on Nov. 1. This approach will be replacing the traditional Parent-Teacher Conferences that we are all used to. This model will focus on the student’s perspective of learning. Each student has a Leadership Binder which will include goals, examples of work, a personalized education plan and assessments that help to illustrate where the student is currently and where they hope to be in the spring. The following are a list of reasons for using Student Led Conferences: 1. Growth is emphasized. 2. Important communication skills are developed. 3. Student Led Conferences empower students to take more ownership in the learning process. 4. Students learn how to self-assess and self-reflect. 5. We can learn from listening to the students’ point of view. The Conotton Valley Union Local School District is in their third year as a “Leader in Me” District. Student Led Conferences are a natural progression to the students becoming better leaders and taking control of their learning. We are very excited for this opportunity for our students to showcase their talents this year.

Sherry’s Book Corner Hi kids! I am going to share a cool book about Thanksgiving with you! What makes this book one of a kind is the author used the alphabet to share such an event. For example, P is for Pilgrims. I think you’ll have fun reading it. And it is most colorful due to the illustrations. When you think about it, many people worked together to create a fine Thanksgiving Day. One woman thought it was important for a national Thanksgiving Day. Her name was Sarah Josepha Hale. She was a magazine editor. Every fall she filled her magazine with Thanksgiving recipes, stories, and songs. After many years in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared a day of Thanksgiving for the whole country. It was set on the last Thursday of November. And, just so you know, in 1941, Congress declared Thanksgiving a federal holiday. That is why you do not have school on that day! Also, on that day all government offices are closed. Until next time, have a fun and exciting Thanksgiving Day!                                                        Your friend,

                                                               Sherry                                            Sherry Kline Bolitho

COLUMBUS – Effective Oct. 29, House Bill 95 becomes law and enacts a significant distracted driving deterrent and an effective tool for law enforcement to enforce dangerous driving.   House Bill 95 establishes Ohio’s unique approach of combating distracted driving by enhancing existing moving violations.   For example, law enforcement officers no longer will need to prove a driver is texting, but only that  a moving violation has occurred and the driver was distracted at the time. The law requires an enhanced financial penalty in addition to existing fines or alternatively the completion of  a distracted driver  course,  for  drivers who  commit a specific traffic  violation  while distracted. For example, a driver operating a vehicle outside marked lanes who is also engaging in a distracted behavior, will face an enhanced fine of up to $100 in addition to a fine for the lane violation.   Other violations such as red light, stop sign,

Carrollton High School Honor Rolls Students in grades 9-12 named to the Carrollton High School Honor Roll for the first nine weeks grading period of the 2018-19 school year have been reported by school officials as follows: Distinguished Honor Roll 4.0 GPA Alex Adkins, 9th Grade

Students experience history on trip The seventh- and eighth-grade students of Bell-Herron Middle School had a great experience on their trip to Gettysburg, Pa. Students paid their respects at the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa. The memorial was built in the spot where the plane crashed on 9/11. The students also toured the battlefields at Gettysburg to learn about the important bat-

tles of the Civil War. These included Pickett’s Charge and students stood on the spot where President Abraham Lincoln delivered the historic Gettysburg Address. Above are some of the students on the trip. They also traveled to Annapolis, Md., and had a tour of the Naval Academy. The trip ended with some fun for students at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Md.

BCC to host sophomore visitation days Nov. 12-14 Nearly 1,000 sophomores from Tuscarawas County, Carroll County and Holmes County will be exploring careers and programs at Buckeye Career Center Nov. 12-14. The Sophomore Career Exploration Days allow high-school sophomores to tour Buckeye Career Center and see the 35 high school programs offered to them for their final two years of high school. According to BCC Marketing representative Heather Coletti, the visits expand on recent presentations conducted by the BCC Marketing team to all local high-school sophomores during the month of October. “This gives the students an idea of whether the career center has programs that fit into their future goals, or maybe just peak an interest for expanding their knowledge. We recommend for students to join us for the visitation day so they are able to see it in person after getting a glimpse of what it’s about,” said Coletti. She believes an in-person visit is the only way to truly showcase all that Buckeye has to offer prospective students. “Smelling the oil, working on an engine, designing a t-shirt, cutting hair, these are all things that sophomores will see and do while visiting. I feel after they can physically experience their career options, sophomores are more confident in the decision of whether the career center is the right step for their future,” said Coletti. The students will pick five programs to visit during their oneday trip and will participate in various activities with current

What is a veteran? Whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve, a veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including his or her life.” THAT IS HONOR!

Follow these Thanksgiving travel safety tips this year The week of Thanksgiving is a busy time of the year to travel that’s marked by a large number of people traveling to see loved ones. In 2017, AAA projected 50.9 million Americans would journey 50 miles or more from home on Thanksgiving. While many people look forward to seeing their loved ones, the sheer volume of cars on the road during Thanksgiving week makes it a dangerous time to travel. A 2013 study examining the previous five years of data on traffic crashes in Alberta, Canada, found that long weekends have 18 percent more deadly accidents than non-holiday weekends. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Thanksgiving is the most dangerous holiday for driving. The most recent data available from NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System indicates that there were 764 crashes involving a fatality during Thanksgiving 2012. In comparison, there were 654 crashes involving a fatality during Christmas that year. This Thanksgiving, drivers should make it a point to follow these tips to ensure they get to their destinations safely and soundly. • Check the forecast before you go. Weather can be unpredictable around Thanksgiving. Conditions may be sunny one day and then cold and icy the

next. Stay up-to-date on the latest weather forecasts and road conditions as you prepare for your trip, making sensible decisions about traveling if there is inclement weather. • Get your vehicle inspected. Have your vehicle inspected in the days before you hit the road. A mechanic’s diagnostic checkup and routine servicing, such as topping off fluids and changing windshield wipers, can make driving safer. • Keep your fuel tank more than half-full. FEMA suggests keeping the tank full when temperatures are extremely cold. This is because condensation can build up in near-empty gas tanks, potentially freezing fuel lines and leaving you stranded. • Opt for airline updates. Flights can be delayed or can-

celed when weather is poor. Many airlines will now text travelers who are subscribed to updates or frequent-flyer programs and apps. That’s a convenient and free bonus. • Plan for stops. Drowsy driving and distracted driving are extreme dangers across North America. Take breaks to avoid drowsiness, and only use a mobile device when safely pulled over at a rest stop. • Leave plenty of time. There are bound to be many travelers come Thanksgiving week. Build extra time into your trip so you don’t have to speed or rush to make it on time. Thanksgiving is a big travel holiday. Make it to family dinner safe and full of smiles by following various safety trips during your travels.

Stay safe this holiday season The holiday season is an exciting time of year, and it is easy to get swept up in the decorations, crowds and social engagements. Despite the joviality and revelry of the holiday season, there is also the potential to become a target of theft. Allstate Insurance says break-ins, package theft, online hacking, and pick-pocketing incidences increase around this time of year. As a result, it’s imperative that celebrants exercise caution come the holiday season. Stop the “porch pirates”

Shoppers are not the only ones eagerly awaiting the arrival of packages come the holiday season. Thieves are ready and waiting to snatch up items once they are delivered. Dubbed “porch pirates,” these criminals take packages off of porches when the delivery services leave them behind. According to a study by Blink, a video security company, residents of rural areas have a higher chance of being victimized by these crimes, which can occur anywhere. A 2016 survey from InsuranceQuotes. com found that roughly one in

10 adults has had a package stolen from his or her home before they were able to open it. To avoid such crimes, consider having packages sent to a business location where there are more people around to receive them or to a neighbor who is home all day. Other suggestions include requiring a signature through the shipping service upon deliver or requesting the package be dropped off in a concealed area. Be alert of your surroundings

While shopping in busy malls and other stores, keep track of the people close to you. Consider keeping credit cards and cash in an inside pocket rather than a back pocket or in a purse, which is more easily snatched. Exercise caution at ATM machines, guarding PIN codes and retrieving and storing withdrawn funds quickly. When checking out at the store, ensure that your card never leaves your hand. Many retailers now have chip-imbedded card readers that enable customers to complete transactions without handing over their cards.

Check receipts and statements

Because digital theft and identity theft spike this time of year, be sure to cross-reference purchases made against banking and credit card statements frequently. Alert banking institutions to any fraudulent purchases immediately so you will not be responsible. Then have new cards issued and prior accounts closed. Shop from secured sites, and only use secure WiFi connections. Keep gifts and purchases out of sight

Do not leave bags in the back seat of a car in plain sight of thieves. Hide purchases in the trunk or under a cargo cover in an SUV or truck. Also, do not advertise what you’ve bought or received to thieves by leaving the empty boxes outside. That big-screen TV box is a big giveaway that you now have expensive electronics in the house. Shoppers must be vigilant during the holiday season to avoid being victimized by thieves.

Tips for preparing for visiting elder guests for the holidays Homeowners may find themselves hosting senior guests several times throughout a typical year. These occasions can be wonderful opportunities for making memories, but homeowners may need to take certain precautions to ensure that guests are safe and comfortable. This may involve making some minor modifications around the home. Mobility and comfort needs for seniors may differ those necessary to accommodate other guests. Meeting the needs of senior guests may involve any of the following. • Make sure pathways leading to and from the home are level, cleared and easy to see. • If possible, add a ramp over stairs that lead to the front door. Ensure handrails are sturdy. • Remove clutter and excess furniture if a guest visiting will be using a walker or a manual/

E-mail your news to fps44615@

motorized wheelchair. • Remove accent rugs from a home, and be sure that any mats are secured with nonslip material. • Increase lighting in entryways, staircases and hallways, especially areas leading to kitchens or bathrooms. • If guests will be staying overnight, arrange sleeping accommodations on the first floor and/or in a room closest to the bathroom. • Well-placed grab bars in the bathroom can be an asset. See

if you can borrow a portable shower seat to make bathing or showering easier for overnight senior guests. • For long-term guests, consider replacing round doorknobs and other pulls with lever-action ones that are easy to grab. • Concessions may need to be made concerning interior temperature, noise levels and television viewing. Several easy modifications can be made to make senior guests feel comfortable when visiting others.

Sheriff gives out treats at Dellroy’s Halloween Trunk or Treat

Children enjoy treats in Dellroy

Kinzy Wiegand, age 6, talked the sheriff into a few extra treats. The sheriff had no objections to the princess at Dellroy’s Trunk or Treat held at Dellroy Community Church of Christ.

The Trunk or Treat night held on Halloween at the Dellroy Community Church of Christ had lots of interesting characters finding treats even from spooky treat givers.


Centreville Village staff for receiving your Ohio Department of Health Deficiency Free Survey for 2 years in a row!!

A unicorn was prowling the streets of Sherrodsville on Halloween looking for treats. Ricky Sibila, age 11, said his mom helped with the costume.
