Holiday displays sought for listing in paper Carroll County is all aglow for the upcoming Christmas and holiday season. It is well worth one’s time to take a drive around the county and view the various holiday displays. The Free Press Standard is seeking a listing of the local and area holiday displays for publication in upcoming issues. Residents are encouraged to send information to The FPS listing the location and full address, a brief description of the display, along with nights and times the displays will be lighted. The suggested locations thus far are: • First Christian Church in Malvern, every night starting at 5:30 p.m., turn the radio to 88.3 and enjoy the show. • Private display near Pattersonville on Arbor Road, west (left from Carrollton) of state Route 9 just after the railroad tracks. The house is located near the end of the road on the left. Be cautious of Amish buggies in that area. Information can either be emailed to, faxed to 330-6273195 or dropped off at The FPS business office at 43 E. Main St., Carrollton.

Christmas on the Square set

A Christmas on the Square program will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, in Carrollton’s Public Square Park. Theme of the evening is “God with Us”, according to Rev. Kimberly Arbaugh, associate pastor of Carrollton First United Methodist Church and The Bridge.

Proposed Atwood Joint Ambulance District holds informational meeting By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

Sherrodsville EMS coordinator Kevin Vandegrift met with those interested in the forming of an Atwood Ambulance District at the Dellroy Elementary school Monday night. About 10 people attended. Vandegrift introduced Attorney and Firefighter Chip Comstock who presented the legal steps needed to form such a district in the area. Sherrodsville EMS used to provide coverage to a large area around Sher-

rodsville. Response time was normally five to ten minutes. But that service has not been available for over two years. The seven entities that are being asked to join in the ambulance district are Sherrodsville, Leesville, Roswell, Dellroy, Monroe Township, Orange Township, and Warren Township. Each group would elect one member to serve on the ambulance district board to represent them. The board would be responsible for placing a levy on the ballot that would fund the district to provide ambulance service to the area. Currently, two private ambulance

companies try to provide service for the Sherrodsville area but average wait times for a squad to arrive is more than 45 minutes, according to Vandergrift. “Medically, this misses the golden hour when treatment for heart attacks, strokes, or serious injury or illness is the most important,” said Comstock. Items discussed were where the district equipment would be located, the number of squads needed, the number of personnel to respond to each call, insurance, and billing. Sherrodsville has a virtually new EMS squad with only 18,000 miles on it. The village has offered to lease the squad and equipment and also the

squad building at Sherrodsville to the new district if it is formed. This would save the district thousands of dollars of startup costs, according to Vandegrift. Jeff Caldwell, a long time police office and firefighter, had many questions for Comstock regarding the formation of the district. Caldwell questioned what the cost would be to a homeowner on taxes if a levy was passed. Vandegrift said that was not clear because it depends on if the cost is divided between seven entities or if more areas are added into the district. The more included would reduce the cost. Vandegrift gave as an example the Quad Ambulance district that serves

Waynesburg, Sandy Township, Rose Township, and Magnolia. Their budget per year is $850,000. They offer 24/7, 365 day service. Vandegrift said it is estimated it would take 6.5 to 7 mills from a levy to provide funding for the Atwood Ambulance District. Six mills would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $210 per year, $17.50 per month, or 57 cents per day, according to Vandegrift. The next meeting to provide information about the possible formation of the district will be held Thursday, Dec. 13 at Conotton Valley High School from 7-9 p.m.

Commissioners learn people are hunting on landfill property By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent Game Warden Scott Cartwright met with Carroll County Commissioners to discuss hunting issues at the former county landfill. Commissioners agreed several years ago that absolutely no hunting by anyone is permitted on the property. This was upon the advice of county insurance and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Cartwright checked out the property Nov. 26 and found two adults and one juvenile hunting on the property. Neither man had a hunting license or a deer permit but had just shot a deer.

The man with the buck said he was the owner of the property but Cartwright discovered that he was from Florida and didn’t own any land in Carroll County and didn’t live here either. Citations were issued and the deer was confiscated by Cartwright. Cartwright said he was surprised to find several hunting blinds, tree stands, numerous game cameras, and a boat. There is even a camper and a van Cartwright thought was on county property as well as several well-used ATV trails. Commissioner Bob Wirkner was quite surprised by the photos he had been shown of some of the tree stands. Wirkner said it wasn’t what he would qualify as a simple tree stand. He felt

they were meant to be permanent structures as were some of the hunting blinds. Cartwright suggested commissioners might want to consider a “Good Neighbor Program” for the property. With that program, permits would be given from commissioners to hunt on the property. It would give commissioners control as to how many hunters are on the property and they could insure that only county residents are on the property. A youth hunt program and even a program for Wounded Warriors was also proposed.


CIC confirms water and sewer development to SR 9 , 171 By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent Carroll County Community Improvement Corp. met in commissioner’s boardroom recently and was pleased that enough funds have been raised to move forward with the water and sewer project from the village to the junction of State Route’s 9 and 171. The project is estimated at $1.9 million. The CIC announced that The Ohio Department of Transportation will contribute $1 million, the CIC is contributing $200,000 plus the $300,000 they received from the sale of 20 acres at the SR 9 and SR 171 intersection, the Board of Developmental Disability will contribute $100,000, and Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District will contribute $300,000. The funds from MWCD are the

more inside

amount commissioners turned back to MWCD when they sold the Atwood Lake Lodge and property two years ago. Any funds remaining in that account were required to be returned to MWCD. But MWCD made good on their promise to return the funds to the county if it was to be used for a good project. Attorney Sean Smith said the preliminary survey of the property at SR 9 and SR 171 and has been sent to the map office. There is about 1200 feet of road frontage. “The survey costs, the environmental study, the title searches were all done by ODOT,” said Smith. The contract will close in December or January. The 20 acres is part of a 200 acre parcel. But Smith said he expected to close by Christmas. Engineering costs to cover change orders is estimated to be $87,625 which will be paid by the county. All monies are to be collected by the end of the year, according to Smith.

All new businesses built along the corridor will have tap on fees. The project will begin at Centreville Village. Current businesses such as Golden Age Retreat, the dog pound, County Transit, and Carroll Hills will be grandfathered into the system. During the vote to give final approval for the project, five members abstained. They were the three commissioners and Carrollton Mayor Bill Stoneman and Carrollton Village Administrator Mark Wells. Eight votes approved the project. In other business the CIC: - NAMED Christopher Modranski to a seat on the CIC in place of Tait Carter. - ALSO named Modranski as secretary pro tem. - STATED the land sale for Carroll Columbiana Harrison Environmental Group is a dead issue. - AUTHORIZED President Denny Roudebush to negotiate a new lease for farm lands for the Jenkins farm.

Ellie Bake holds a letter she received from President Donald Trump this summer, thanking her for her support.

Carrollton woman receives letter from President Trump After her grandson’s employment with DLH/Bowles ended because of his job’s move to Mexico earlier this year, Ellie Bake of Carrollton wrote to President Donald J. Trump regarding the matter. She received a letter from the U.S. Department of Labor with recommendations for job assistance. Bake wrote another letter in support of Trump, decorating it with flags and stars front and back. “I spent $23 to send it overnight. It took a week for him to get it,” she noted. “I think the FBI thought it was suspicious and checked it out. I would never hurt my dear president.” In June, she received a letter from Trump on White House stationary. It read: “Thank you for your kind letter and generous words of encouragement.

Our nation’s economy is experiencing tremendous growth. Our country is roaring back more quickly than anyone could have predicted. From coast to coast, there is a renewed spirit of optimism, and the American Dream has never been more attainable. “Thank you again for your steadfast support.

Sherrodsville Lions host Lunch with Santa Saturday, Dec. 1, marked the fourth annual Lunch with Santa at the Sherrodsville Lions’ Club. The Lions offer invitations to Conotton Valley, Tuscarawas Valley and Dellroy Elementary schools to attend the event. With some generous donations from local businesses, the club members provided a soup and sandwich lunch for families. Wendy’s in Carrollton, The Western Grill, Dave’s Diner and McDonald’s in Uhrichsville all made lunch item donations. Cost of the lunch is a donation, which benefits the club’s scholarship fund. For the past 3 years, the Lions have partnered with the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots initiative. Santa offers a couple of early presents to each child who pays him a visit. The Sherrodsville Lions’ Club is the only Lions’ Club in Carroll County. Each Tuesday evening, they sponsor a bingo game. As required by state law, the Lions must donate a percentage of those bingo profits to non-profit organizations and agencies. To date this year, they have made contributions to the following: $180 to HARCATUS Retired and Senior Volunteer Program; $250 to Sherrodsville Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.; $500 to Hands Across Sherrodsville Food Pantry; $500 to Sherrodsville Salvation Army; $100 to HARCATUS Family Support in Carrollton for their blanket drive; and $250 to Conotton Valley Share-A-Christmas. The Lions are always looking for new Lions who might be interested in helping them keep the mission of community service alive and well in Sherrodsville and Carroll County! Judge Gary L. Willen

Fire departments’ consolidation discussed By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

Carrollton Village Fire Department Chief Shane Thomas and Carroll County Volunteer Fire Department, Station 12, Chief Jack Swinehart met with county commissioners to discuss the details regarding their upcoming consolidation into one department. Last month the Chiefs met with Carrollton Council and presented the decision to consolidate. Thomas said it just made fiscal sense to join the two departments. Thomas will remain as chief of the new department and Swinehart will be a captain. Swinehart told commissioners that they will terminate their use of the county fire department building by June 1, 2019. “We hope to have the legal part of all this out of the way in a couple months,” said Swinehart. Currently the county HAZMAT vehicle is stored at the village department, and Commissioner Bob Wirkner questioned when it needed removed from the village building. The chiefs assured him there was no rush, that the consolidation of equipment will take some time to accomplish. The chiefs plan to sort out all the equipment both departments currently have and keep the best and most updated equipment for the newly combined department that will increase by 16 firefighters. Swinehart said there are many old items and pieces of equipment that are no longer needed. He said those would all be sorted out at the county building where there is room in the meeting room. Items not needed by the new combined department will probably be sold at auction. “We need a little time to sort it all out. Our stuff is limited as to how we can get rid of it. There are a lot of small items. An auction will probably be best,” said Swinehart. Commissioner Jeff Ohler said there would be a great deal of public interest in the auctioned items. “This station will be closed with honors. We will have a retirement ceremony. We will invite past members. And the station will be given a final tone out by the sheriff’s department,” stated Wirkner. Wirkner said they want to show their respect for Swinehart and the many years he has served as Chief as well as a firefighter. Wirkner continued that

they also want to honor Roy Swinehart, who gave more than his blood, sweat, and tears. A plaque will be made and presented with the names of the fire department members from the county department. County funds cannot be used by law for the purchase of a plaque but Thomas said his department will take care of the costs. Each member of the county fire department will be presented with a framed certificate honoring their services. The expense of those items will be shared by Commissioners Ohler and Wirkner. The combined department will not only add 16 firefighters to the roster but will give the department three engines, two UTVs and five sets of jaws of life.

Dellroy Council hires new solicitor By JACQUIE HUMPHREY

FPS Correspondent At the December meeting of the Dellroy Village Council, Mayor Doug Ruby inquired of council as to their intentions for replacing Solicitor Jason Jackson. Jackson had notified council earlier in the year of his intentions to resign at the end of 2018, and recommended A. Jenna Hokes as his replacement. Clerk Candice Ruby read to Council a contract she had received from Hokes, who had addressed Council earlier in the year. Hokes will work for the same salary as Jackson, $3,600 annually. Clerk Ruby asked Council about paying Hokes as an independent contractor, which was suggested to her in a recent audit, as opposed to being paid on the Village’s payroll. Council discussed the matter and voted unanimously to hire Hokes at the rate of $3,600 per year, as an independent contractor. Mayor Ruby, and all of Council, thanked Jackson for his service to the Village. Hokes will begin her duties in January, 2019. In other discussion, Emmerson Huffman, the Village’s Volunteer Fire Department Chief, was present to discuss with Council the certified letter that the Village had received from

the State, advising that the Fire Department was delinquent in filing required forms with the State. Huffman told Council that he did not feel that the Fire Department was in violation of their contract with the Village, and that the Fire Department is working to bring their reporting current with the State. Resident Dave Jones was present at the meeting to request that council consider putting a 4-way stop in place of the current traffic light. Jones said that he has watched traffic approaching the Village on SR 542 from the Lake and believes that when this traffic encounters a green light, they do not slow down to the Village’s posted speed limit. Mayor Ruby advised that the Village pays for the electric of the traffic light, but that he is unsure if a traffic light versus a 4-way stop is mandated by ODOT or up to the Village’s discretion. Ruby said that he would research the situation. In other business, Mayor Ruby inquired of council if they intend to purchase a new tractor or have the old one repaired. Ruby reported that he had a quote from Ed Long of Carrollton to repair the current tractor for approximately $1,500, where a new one would cost around $20,000. Council unanimously decided to opt for the repair. Other Action: - Approved purchase orders in

Lest We Forget

The Carroll County Auditor’s Office will be closed Friday, Dec. 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

During World War I, the British and the French were grateful for the presence of the American troops, but they used them only to fill in for wounded or dead Allied soldiers. General Pershing, the commander of the fighting forces in Europe, violently opposed this area. He wanted the Americans to fight together, under American officers. He had no intention of letting them be used as fillers. Pershing got his way in June 1918. The Germans had taken over a small, kidney-shaped area called Belleau Wood in northern France. Belleau Wood had to be regained by the Allies, and the French troops were exhausted. Ferdinand Foch, the French commander, gave the go-ahead to Pershing to order American troops to take back Belleau Wood. Belleau Wood was an important location because it was a good observation post with a highway nearby linking Paris with the front lines. Whoever controlled Belleau Wood also controlled the highway. The troops Pershing sent to Belleau Wood were marines, or leathernecks, as they called themselves. The French troops urged the marines to retreat. The French kept motioning with their hands to go back, but the American troops were not interested in retreating. “Retreat hell,” one of them is quoted as saying. “We just got here.” The Germans who controlled Belleau Wood were well hidden. There were ravines, boulders, and tens of thousands of trees. Although the wood was only one square mile, there seemed to be millions of places where German machine gunners were waiting. One June 6, the marines began their assault. They were

led by Sgt. Dan Daily, who urged them on by asking them, “Come on, you sons of bitches – do you want to live forever?” Not waiting for an answer, he waved his rifle overhead and the men followed him into combat. The fighting in Belleau Wood went on for 20 days, 24 hours a day of hell. Marines who lived through the experience said that they survived on “pure nerve.” There was a lack of water and no hot food. The marines survived on cold uncooked bacon and on potatoes they dug out of gardens nearby. None of the men were able to change out of his wet, cold uniforms during the long battle. The Americans had refused Marshal Foch’s suggestion that they dig trenches to give themselves defense. They did not want to dig in. They wanted to attack. Gaining a yard at a time, crawling over the backs of fallen comrades in front of them, the marines gradually took over the woods. On June 26, U.S. generals at headquarters received the following message: “Belleau Wood now U.S. Marine Corps entirely.” The price of victory was high. One thousand and eighty-seven marines, more than half the men fighting, were killed or severely wounded. The Americans proved to the French and British, and especially to the Germans, that they were in Europe to fight. The Americans gave hope to the French and British. Their courage, energy and sheer numbers were appreciated by the war-weary Allies. As one French officer remarked, “You Americans are our hope, our strength, our life.” We must never forget those who fought for our freedom and for the freedom of freedom-loving people throughout the world. Please keep them in your prayers. Charles Pearson is the chaplain for the Malvern Legion Post 375 and Carrollton VFW Post 3301.

Hi kids! Only 12 more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I am! And... if you are not, that’s alright, just get BUSY! As I write you this column, the snow is falling outside my window. Sometimes the wind drives the snow on my windowpane and never leaves a trace. As my deck and the ground which surrounds it is covered in a blanket of white, it reminds me of my childhood winters. I have been blessed with many things in my life, but now that I am older, one of the things I treasure most is the chance to give to someone else. When I saw this book displayed at our library I knew it was a book to share with you now. Years ago Marlo Thomas played in a long running television hit series “That Girl.” We used to watch it every week! It was fun. Her father, actor Danny Thomas, founded the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 1962. St. Jude is free to everyone. No family ever has to pay for the treatment they receive at St. Jude if they cannot afford it. The costs of their care, their medications, and even their travel and housing are fully covered.  Many places in our community supports St.

Unique stocking stuffer is on sale now for $5 If you are looking for a unique and affordable Christmas stocking stuffer, consider the one being offered for only $5 by St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Malvern and St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Minerva. Their colorful stocking stuffer packages include a movie ticket to the Roxy Theater in Minerva for Saturday, January 26, 2019, a complimentary box of popcorn and a soft drink. Also, the first 250 stocking stuffers purchased will include a coupon for a free hamburger and French fries at McDonalds in Minerva. Purchasers will have a choice of two movies. The popular, animated Disney movie, “Frozen�, will play at 11 a.m. Frozen tells the story of a kingdom trapped in perpetual winter. It features fearless, comedic and mystical characters who bravely push onward in a race to save their kingdom from winter’s cold grip. At 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., there will be showings of the PG rated comedy/drama, “Secondhand Lions,� starring Robert Duvall, Michael Cain, Kyra Sedqwick and Haley Joel Osmet. 

It is the story of Walter, a shy boy whose greedy mother leaves him for the summer with his eccentric grand-uncles. It is rumored the uncles have a great fortune and she wants Walter to find it. Walter isn’t happy about being left with two old men, while the uncles aren’t pleased to be stuck minding a boy. When Walter hears gossip about his uncles’ wild and wooly pasts, he begins asking questions, and while the old guys don’t enjoy having the boy poking into their pasts, as they start telling tales of their youthful adventures, they find themselves itching for some new adventures. Film critic Roger Ebert wrote: “This is about the uncles every boy should have, and the summer every boy should spend.� The churches are also offering a $20 patron ticket to the event. It will include a ticket to the movie, popcorn, a soft drink and a Grand Dessert Buffet at St. Gabriel’s meeting rooms from 4–6 p.m. The names of patrons will be listed on the screen prior to each movie.

SPORTS Four inducted into Malvern Athletic Hall of Fame Thursday, December 13, 2018 P. 7


Sports Editor

MALVERN – Four Malvern High School graduates were inducted into the Malvern Athletic Hall of Fame at Friday’s (Dec. 6) basketball game against Claymont. Members of the 2018 Athletic Hall of Fame Class include Shawn Ball, Vince Larson, Doug Schmidt and Mike Larson. Doug Schmidt Doug is a 1970 graduate of Malvern. He lettered three times in both football and track and field, and was selected to the IVC first team in football in 1969. He went on to coach three sports at Malvern – football for three years, girls basketball for four years, and track and field for 16 years. Under his direction, the girls track and field team won five IVC Championships, three District Championships, was IVC runner-ups four times, and was the regional runner-up in 1983. The boys track and

field team were IVC runner-ups twice. Doug spent 26 years as a teacher and administrator at Malvern, retiring as the high-school principal in 2009. He and his wife Kathi have two children Dustin and Katie. Vince Larson Vince graduated from Malvern in 2009. He earned four varsity letters in

baseball, two in basketball, and two in football. In football, Vince was selected to the All-Ohio first team, East District first team, and IVC first team in 2008. He graduated with seven school records. His senior year yielded 225 points, 22 touchdown receptions, 1,363 receiving yards and 76 extra points.

In baseball, Vince was selected to the All-Ohio second team, IVC first team and East District first team in 2009. He graduated with four school records. He went on to play four years of football at Geneva College. Vince resides in Valencia, Pennsylvania with his wife Jamie. He works as a civil engineer at Crown


The Lions only trailed by nine points with under six minutes left in the game, but Dover pulled away down the stretch. Along with his 14 points, Williams pulled down five boards and blocked three shots for the Lions. “Brice Williams really battled for us tonight,” Green said. Minerva’s second leading scorer, Phil Boord, only played 12 minutes due to early foul trouble. Boord scored four points. In Minerva’s second game of the season, against Alliance, Boord made up for the lack of points in game one as he scored 29 points. He went 13-for-16 from the foul line, swiped the ball from Aviators three times and blocked a pair of shots. “He is as efficient a player as we have had since I've been here and I'm happy for him and all the work he has put in to his game,” Coach Green said. “He attacked their press all night long. He shot the three well, and made 81%

from the foul line.” Minerva lost the game 73-64 despite Boord’s scoring fest and another 23 points from Williams. “We did a good job against their pressure (only nine turnovers), but missed too many shots at the rim and gave up too many second chance points (16) on the other end,” Green said. “We need to find a way to rebound better as a team if we want to win games in our league.” Green reassured us that despite the Warriors two losses to open the season, they will put it past them and move forward. “We have tough kids who will continue to work and learn and these adversities early in our season will help prepare us for the rest of our schedule.” Minerva is 0-2 on the season will host the West Branch Warriors Friday, Dec. 14. JV action tips off at 5:30 followed by the varsity.

Minerva falls to Dover, Alliance back-to-back By JORDAN MILLER

Minerva senior, Reece Catlett (10) holds the ball away from a Dover defender in a game against the Tornadoes last Tuesday.

MINERVA – For the first time in four seasons, the Minerva Lions opened their season without a key player on the quarter, and it showed in their first two games. Connor Wright, last season’s conference player of the year, graduated in the spring. With the loss of Wright, it’s put other Lions in a position to step up to the plate. Minerva senior Brice Williams led the Lions with a 14-piece against the Dover Tornadoes, but the Lions still fell 5030 to open their season. “This was a tough match-up for us against one of the premier defenses in our area,” Minerva coach Shawn Green said. “Dover is a D-1 school who has had 27 straight winning seasons and they do it with physicality and defense. We battled and really hung around, but couldn’t find enough offense to stay in it for all four quarters.”

Malvern takes the cake in Carroll County clash By CHRIS MODRANSKI

Sports Writer

The Malvern Hornets came out victorious in "The Battle of Carroll County" as they defeated the Carrollton Warriors last Tuesday at Malvern High School, 67-57. The game was Malvern’s first win of the season, and Carrollton’s second straight loss. Malvern started the game with a 6-1 run but Carrollton quickly answered back with a 15-3 run of their own, thanks to some turnovers, strong rebounding and a few foul shots. The momentum had shifted in their favor. Malvern’s Kenneth Martin (14) scored a layup off a fast break drawing a foul, swing the momentum again. The Hornets got a quick defensive rebound on the ensuing play and Trent

Severs (3) hit a 3-pointer in transition from the right wing on a dime from Martin, tying the game at 16 points with 1:29 left in the first quarter. With under one minute left in the opening quarter, Carrollton's Drue Moore answered back with a threepointer of his own, extending Carrollton’s lead to 22-18 with 44 seconds left. Malvern's Davair Williams scored a quick bucket in the paint. Carrollton missed their ensuing basket allowing Martin to drive into the paint but Carrollton’s Adam Chaney sacrificed his body drawing a charge. Malvern drew a personal foul with 4.1 seconds left but Carrollton's Moore stole the inbound pass and sunk a three-pointer from the top of the key as 1st quarter time expired giving Carrollton a 25-20 lead in the opening frame.

Carrollton took advantage of Malvern’s defensive adjustment in the second quarter. They were able to score three baskets in the opening two minutes of the quarter, including a jawdropping reverse layup by Moore. Carrollton's shooting went dry after that as they only scored 2 points in the last 3 1/2 minutes of the half as Malvern went on a 10-2 run bringing the Hornets within three. Carrollton led 33-30 at the half. When asked what adjustments Malvern made at the half that swung the game in Malvern’s favor Head Coach Dennis Tucci said, “In my opinion it started in the second quarter. We guarded a lot better. We had no answer for Chaney and we knew it was going to be a struggle because he’s a heck of a player.” “He got in foul trouble early in the

second quarter which was big for us because we couldn’t guard him,” Coach Tucci said. “We ended up face guarding him and went soft on everyone else in the third quarter which helped keep them to 7 points and that was the difference in the game.” Malvern took the lead with 4:14 left in the 3rd quarter and never gave it back. The Hornets led 50-40 entering fourth quarter, after scoring 20 points in the third compared to Carrollton's 7 points. Both teams tallied 17 points in the fourth giving Malvern a 10 point advantage for the game for a final score of 67-57. "I thought the boys really sold out effort-wise, taking two charges and out rebounding a team again that had a clear size advantage,” Carrollton Head Coach Mike Aukerman said. “The

effort is there, now we just need to steer it in the proper direction. We are growing as a team, and will improve daily." Chaney led all scorers with 25 points and six rebounds; Drue Moore scored 14 points, six boards and five assists. Connor King added seven points, seven rebounds and two steals. Malvern’s Derk Hutchinson led the way for the Hornet’s with 22 points and 4 rebounds. John Browning contributed 16 points and grabbed seven boards. Kenneth Martin finished one assist shy of a triple double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Malvern is now 2-1 on the season. Carrollton (0-2) will travel to Marlington High School on Friday as they open Eastern Buckeye Conference (EBC) play. Junior varsity begins at 5:30 PM with the varsity game to follow

Carrollton came out and outscored the Lady Tornados in the third quarter nine to seven but Dover answered back in the fourth quarter, scoring eight points compared to Carrollton’s four points. Carrollton senior, Chloe Glass, led the way for the Warriors with 13 points, going a perfect five-for-five from the foul line. Malina Moore contributed 10 points and Abby Laizure chipped in eight points. Dover’s Samantha Blair led all scorers with 22 points. Alana Belknap scored

three baskets and added a foul shot to give her nine points for the game. Both Megan Kiser and Hannah Neff contributed six points for Dover. The Junior Varsity teams played an abbreviated two-quarter game, which Dover won 15-9. On Saturday, the Lady Warriors opened up Eastern Buckeye Conference play when they hosted the Marlington Dukes. The Lady Dukes outscored the Warriors 14-7 in the first quarter, and again in the second quarter with a 19-9 run to take a 33-16

advantage into halftime. The Lady Dukes came out hot in the third quarter outscoring the Warriors 22-9, taking a 55-25 advantage into the fourth quarter. Carrollton gained some ground in the fourth quarter outscoring the Lady Dukes 18-9, but they came up short with the final score of 65-43 in favor of the Lady Dukes. Glass led the Warrior scorers with 15 points and went seven-for-eight from the free throw line. Laizure added eight points for Carrollton and Grace Leslie finished with seven points. As a team,

the Lady Warriors pulled down 23 rebounds. Marlington’s Alivia Lesley led all scorers with 23 points and was four-forfive from the free throw line. Allison Lacher knocked in nine field goals for 18 points while Leah Spring contributed 11 points. Carrollton (1-4) (0-1) will host the West Branch Warriors Saturday, Dec. 15. Junior varsity action starts at noon with the varsity game to follow.

Sports Editor

BERLIN CENTER – The Malvern Hornets wrestling team picked up a pair of wins at a trimatch at Western Reserve against the Blue Devils and Cardinal.

BCC adult, high-school students repair and donate 50 bikes Buckeye Career Center’s annual bicycle drive to benefit T-4-C’s Share-A-Christmas has received a boost for the 2018 campaign. Community members and students donated 30 used bikes that have been repaired by Agriculture & Diesel Technology and Commercial Truck Technology students, just in time for toy distribution. New this year was the contribution of 22 brand-new bicycles from the BCC Adult Education Basic and Advanced Emergency Medical Technician classes. EMT instructor Dana Miller, who also has a son in the high school Ag & Diesel program, explains that she challenged her Basic EMT students to contrib-

ute a couple bikes. “I have a class of 20 students and thought they could put their money together and then it snowballed,” said Miller. It wasn’t long before the Basic class asked the Advanced class to join the fun. “They either went and bought the bikes on their own or gave us money to make the purchases,” said Miller. Emergency responders typically have caring hearts, so Miller isn’t surprised by the generosity. “They’re in EMS so they are already givers,” she said. One student stood out the most to Miller as she gave up her daily sweet tea purchase for a month to contribute to the bike drive. “I know it’s just sweet tea but it is something,” said Miller. “A

lot of these students are single people, struggling and working hard taking this class. I know they don’t have the extra money but they still brought in bikes.” When asked which class won the bike drive, Miller’s assistant instructor Becky Amistadi simply replied, “The kids.” As the bike drive comes to a close, students are making final repairs to the donated used bikes, which now await distribution to those benefiting from this year’s Share-A-Christmas effort. In addition, BCC students will also repair any bikes that were donated during the annual WJER Radio Toy Drive. In total, Buckeye students have donated 5,177 non-perishable food items and 437 toys, as well.

Sherrodsville Wesleyan choir to present ‘O’ Little Town of Bethlehem’ The Sherrodsville Wesleyan Church Choir, under the direction of Pastor Tara Parson, will be presenting the Christmas Cantata “O Little Town of Bethlehem” this Sunday morning, Dec. 16, at 10:30 a.m. On a quiet, calm night in Bethlehem, heaven›s light broke through the darkness with the birth of Christ. Shepherds, and later wise men, joined a host of angels to rejoice in this divine arrival on earth.  Two thousand years later, Christians reflect on how this single event in a humble stable would change the rest of history. Join them as they take a journey back in time to this incredible story. The Sherrodsville Wesleyan Church is located at 73 N. Church St., Sherrodsville (on state Route 39).

John Gregg planning holiday activities for break

Submitted Photo

Frank D’Ambrosio will perform with the Tuscarawas Philharmonic’s Adult and Children Choruses on Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Kent State Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center.

Tusc Philharmonic, Frank D’Ambrosio to reprise hit holiday concert Dec. 15 The Tuscarawas Philharmonic welcomes back the legendary Franc D’Ambrosio for his musical memoir, “Christmas in New York.” On stage at the Kent State Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center, the reprise performance of last year’s holiday hit will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 15 and will feature the Philharmonic’s Adult and Children’s Choruses. Fresh from an appearance at Carnegie Hall, where D’Ambrosio performed with The Four Phantoms, he is best known for his portrayal of the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning musical, “The

Phantom of the Opera.” His resume also includes an Academy Award-nominated film, an Emmy Award-nominated television show, a four-time Tony-nominated Broadway show, two Grammy considerations and a National Theatre Award nomination. Since leaving Broadway, D’Ambrosio has toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe and South America with his critically acclaimed one-man shows, and in 2011 he debuted a new show, “Christmas in New York.” Philharmonic conductor Eric Benjamin collaborated with

D’Ambrosio to orchestrate the holiday show, and the work was first performed by the Philharmonic in 2017. “So successful was the premiere that we immediately decided to repeat it,” said Benjamin. “Our combined efforts will provide, I hope, the experience of hearing this beloved music with some of the wonder of hearing it as though for the first time.” Tickets are still available at or by calling the Performing Arts Center box office at 330-308-6400. Tickets range from $24-$36, with student and senior discounts available.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at SLHS

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Southern Local High School, where classes will be decking the halls with holiday décor. The school leadership committee, which includes about 11 SLHS students, is spearheading the project and each corridor has a corresponding theme. Hopes are to have the decorations ready so students - and staff - can start counting down to Christmas break. Leadership committee member Aubrianna Mellott said the idea was to do something fun

and festive to ring in the season. “We came up with the idea to try to show how we can work together as a school and make something the elementary kids can come and see, as well as something we can put on for the community.” The original plan was to decorate for Halloween, but organizers opted to get into the Christmas spirit. Teachers became involved and holiday themes were selected for areas of the building including “Candy Land,” “Gingerbread,” “The Grinch” and “Winter Won-

derland,” “Frozen,” and “Santa and His Elves.” Students signed up to decorate and have been spending time before and after school getting the hallways ready. Hopes are to showcase their designs to the public during the school basketball game on Dec. 15. Mellott noted that it was not a competition, but rather a show of cooperation. “We wanted to bring everyone together and make it uniform. Everyone can do something and be included.”

CHS to present ‘The Last Curtain Call’ The CHS Speech and Theatre department is proud to present “The Last Curtain Call, a Tribute to the Past” in place of the annual “Home for the Holidays Cabaret.” The reunion of students, alumni, and supporters is scheduled for Dec. 15, at Bell-Herron Audito-

rium. A reception will begin at 6 p.m. with light refreshments, photo displays, and items up for auction.  7 p.m. will begin performances from a selection of musicals, all performed by original cast members of that CHS production.  Admission is free to the

community. All donations will benefit the students of the CHS Speech and Theatre Department. Please contact the CHS Friends of Forensic and Dramatic Arts Booster Club or  Alzana Nuzzolillo at 330-627-8245 with any questions.

John Gregg Elementary School is celebrating Christmas with a variety of activities slated before the holiday break. The month began with a toy drive until Dec. 7 to benefit the Just Be Clause charity in Bergholz, which distributes gifts to needy local kids. New toys, books, wrapping paper and tape were collected in each classroom and given to the organization. Subsequent events included a Christmas Candygram Sale with items to be dispersed Dec. 19; a Santa’s Workshop held by the school PTO on Dec. 3-7 to give students some holiday shopping ideas; a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus on Dec. 6 to distribute candy canes and collect Christmas wishes from the kids; and an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest for staff and students Dec. 17. There is a $1 cost to participate in the contest and proceeds go to the Friendship Room in Steubenville. The school will hold its Christmas program Dec. 18. Music teacher Kathy Ramsey said this year’s theme is “Christmas on Broadway” and two performances will be held at 9:30 a.m. for grades PreK-6 and 1:30 p.m. for grades K-6. Parents of students with last names beginning from A-M are to attend the morning show while those with letters N-Z are to attend the afternoon performance. Another performance is slated for staff and students on Dec. 20. “We will be using a common reading strategy and compare and contrast for this event,” Ramsey said. “The entire school will be singing two songs per grade level with lots of extra entertainment between performances.” Kindergarten and first-graders will celebrate Christmas Around the World Dec. 14 with classrooms being transformed into such countries as Spain, Brazil, Ireland and Canada. First-grade teacher Amy Sinicropi said students will travel between rooms with special passports and learn songs and stories about the countries as well as watch videos and make crafts. Second and third-grade students will then take part in similar events Dec. 19 and learn about global yuletide traditions. Organizer Tiffani Roush, a second-grade teacher at the school, said students will get to learn the customs of Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico and even the North Pole. “This is a fun way to teach the kids about our world as we look at the culture and traditions of different countries,” she said. “They also love the opportunity to go into different classrooms

and get to know the teachers better.” Leading up to the big day, second-graders will also have a special Gingerbread Day and receive packets of mix to make at home with their families. “They choose a country for their gingerbread man to travel to, research that country and fill out the information on a passport. Then they decorate their gingerbread to show the customs of the country they chose. These will be displayed in the hallway,” Roush added. “We will set aside one day to make and decorate gingerbread cookies. The kitchen staff helps by baking the cookies and students also analyze the characters and compare the many different versions of the Gingerbread Man.” Meanwhile, students can also enjoy a holiday movie that day

while raising funds for a good cause. Fifth and sixth-grade teacher Tally Pasiuk said kids will pay $1 to attend the movie, $1 to wear pajamas and 50 cents for popcorn to help generate some money for the Pediatric Cortical Visual Impairment (PCVI) Society and Just Be Clause. “PCVI will help advocate for improvement in the quality of life of children with vision loss due to a brain disorder, disease or injury,” she explained. “Just Be Clause is a local organization that provides local children with gifts this holiday season.” Pasiuk said donations to PCVI may also be made online at The celebration winds down with Christmas parties Dec. 20 and school dismisses early for the holiday break. Classes will resume on Jan. 3.

Edison Junior, Senior High School to present Christmas concerts

Edison Jr./Sr. High School band and choir members will be making holiday music during Christmas concerts slated for mid-December. The Christmas choir concert is set for Dec. 14 with seventh and eighth grade singers taking the stage at 6 p.m. and grades 9-12 and the A Cappella Choir performing at 7:30 p.m. Vocal music director Dani Carroll said the choirs will perform a collection of holiday, secular and winter songs to ring in the yuletide season. Admission is free but donations will be accepted to benefit the music program. A potential snow date has been scheduled for Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., respectively, in case of inclement weather. The junior high band will host its concert Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. Band director Marc Sansone said admission is by donation only and proceeds benefit the band program.

Carrollton salons now offering mani-pedi services By GEORGETTE HUFF FPS Contributor

Few things seem more elegant than having a manicure. Not the haphazard filing followed by the hurried application of clear polish during commercial breaks of “NCIS” that my nails are lucky to get about once in a blue moon. No, I mean the real deal: a warm soak, careful shaping

and artful polishing. Experiencing that kind of attentive service is much easier with the addition of skilled nail technicians at Hair Gallery and New Creation, both in downtown Carrollton. When Shaina Elifritz decided to attend cosmetology school she only wanted to do hair and wasn’t at all interested in nails. That changed, she said, during the first month of training, when she did her first set

of acrylics and knew instantly that she “just loved it.” Shaina graduated from the Raphael School of Beauty Culture in Alliance in July 2018, and joined the staff of Hair Gallery upon receiving her cosmetology license in Sept. 2018. Hair Gallery is located at 60 N. Lisbon St., Carrollton. Manicure services include full sets of acrylics, including shellac, $40; acrylic fills, including
