The cafeteria and dining area for both high school and middle school students still has equipment (as shown) to be installed. The photo was taken from the second floor of the new school.

Construction on the new Carrollton schools is on schedule with an official dedication date set for Aug. 3. That is the latest update given by Carrollton school officials regarding the $42 million plus complex for grades 6-12 being constructed on boardowned property on state Route 332, south of Carrollton. The complex for middle school and high school students in grades 6-12 will officially open in August when classes resume for the 2019-20 school year. According to Ed Robinson, director of programs for the Carrollton Exempted Village School District, the owner occupancy (school district) is set for mid-June for the new Carrollton High School-Middle School and for mid-July for the new Field House being constructed on the site of the former barn. A dedication for the new state of the art facility, along with building tours, will be held Saturday, Aug. 3, at 10 a.m. with guided tours from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school’s new site on state Route 332, just south of town. A moving date for teachers and school

employees is tentatively set for the last week of June, Robinson said. The total cost of the complex being constructed on ground purchased in 1989 by the Board of Education is $42,752,000. Of that amount, Carroll County Energy, located on SR 9, just north of Carrollton, is providing $1.3 million for 30 years – totaling $39 million through an Enterprize Zone Agreement. The remaining 41% of the total is provided by the Ohio Facility Construction Commission, which amounts to approximately $16,071.036. Building Overview The new 1,033 student Carrollton High School – Middle School is Phase I of a two-phase PK-12 project designed by Lesko Architecture and built by Shook-Touchstone Construction. The Carrollton Exempted Village School District has partnered with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) to share the total cost of the project and has added LFI’s (locally funded initiatives) for a new Performing Arts Center and Field House. The building plan is organized around a central core that includes a

Firefighters from six fire departments, along with the Carroll County Emergency Management Agency and Carroll County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a tanker truck accident Thursday evening, which kept state Route 332 closed until Monday. The driver, David William Ross of Pennsylvania died in the crash.

Tanker driver dies in crash State Route 332 re-opens to traffic By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent State Route 332 re-opened to traffic Tuesday, March 12, after being closed throughout the weekend near the site of a tanker truck accident. Drivers are asked to please use extra caution in the area. Ohio Department of Transportation officials were examining the roadway to determine what repairs need to be made and to replace the guardrail damaged in the crash. Carroll County Sheriff Dale Williams said the call came in to 911 dispatch at 5:50 p.m. Thursday, March 7, that a tanker truck had crashed, rolled and was on fire on state Route 332, south of Carrollton. The truck was owned by Farmers Propane and had just received a full load at the Scio gas plant. It is estimated the truck held 10,000 gallons of propane. The driver of the truck, David William Ross, was 48 years old and lived in Meadville, Pennsylvania with his wife and children ages 12 and 18. Ross did not survive the crash. Ross’ wife told authorities she had received a text message from her husband at 5:36 p.m. while his truck was being loaded at Scio. Williams said Farmers Propane had tracked the rig until Penny Road where they lost contact with Ross. “This appears to have been an accident. A terrible accident. I have spoken with Mrs. Ross and we will do everything we can to find the answers regarding this crash. Anytime a life is lost, it is one life too many,” stated Wil-

A 45-year-old Harrison Township man is being held in the Carroll County jail on a $100,000 cash or surety bond set Monday on charges of public indecency. Following an investigation regarding a man who was allegedly exposing himself to small children, Carroll County deputies arrested Gary Dean Lee Jr. of 2011 Jasmine Road NW, Carrollton. He was taken into custody at his residence without further incident and taken to the Carroll County jail. Carroll County Sheriff Dale Williams said that information was provided to resource officers and Carrollton school officials. Williams directed a plainclothed deputy to ride the school bus Friday, March 8. Deputies followed the school bus in an unmarked vehicle. Deputies reported Lee was observed by officers pulling down his pajama pants and exposing himself to a young child. He was immediately arrested by officers and taken to jail for processing. Lee later admitted to officers that he had committed the act and had done so on other occasions as well. An arraignment hearing was held Monday afternoon in Carroll County Municipal Court before Judge Gary R. Willen. Willen presented Lee with three counts of public indecency, all second-degree misdemeanors. All three charges include up to 90 days in jail and a maximum $750 in fines. Lee told Willen he does odd jobs for a living.

GARY DEAN LEE, JR. Lee was given a $100,000 cash surety bond without the 10% option since the alleged crime involved a sevenyear-old girl. Lee entered a not guilty plea to the charges, involving incidents on March 5, 6 and 8. Willen ordered that Lee, if released on bond, have no contact with any child under the age of 18 and will be placed with a GPS monitor, at the defendant’s cost. He must also remain at least 1,000 yards away from any child under the age of 18. Lee will have his pretrial hearing Wednesday, March 20 at 10 a.m. His trial is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 9 a.m. Lee remains in the Carroll County jail.

The investigation is on-going and not complete according to Williams, but at this time it appears the truck went off the right side of the road on the crest of a small hill and the truck jackknifed as it slid down the hill off the side of the road and into a small lake. As the truck jackknifed and slid down the side of the hill into the lake, it damaged 275 feet of guardrail and three utility poles.

The staff of the Carroll County Auditor’s office received their oaths of office last week from Carroll County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Repella.

County auditor renews oath

Carroll County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Repella gave the oath of office to Carroll County Auditor Lynn Fairclough to begin her second term of office March 7. Her term begins March 11, 2019. Fairclough ran unopposed in the November 2018 election. Fairclough again thanked the voters for their support and promised to continue to be very diligent in all aspects of her office. There have been many changes in the Auditor’s Office and duties since she followed Leroy VanHorne as county auditor. VanHorne retired in February of 2014 and county commissioners approved Fairclough to be acting auditor for the last few days of his term before her own term started. The CAUV taxes, the gas and oil taxes and other areas of the office continue to change and grow. “I have the best staff and they work very hard with me to take care of the county finances,” said Fairclough.

Following a lengthy discussion, council agreed to give the first reading of an ordinance that will let the village, if they so choose, to grant service credit from other villages or subdivi-

sions for accrued vacation time. “With this in place, we can hire good experienced workers. It gives us the opportunity, but is not mandatory,” said Wells.

The offices are in need of new and additional shelving, electrical updates and security measures need to be added. “I have what we need to build the shelves, they are metal, and will be moveable too.

announced: - $25 million for multi-system youth will prevent parents from having to relinquish custody of children with developmental disabilities or severe mental illness so that they can get the treatment they need; - $8.5 million to support struggling grandparents and other kin care providers who unexpectedly find themselves caring for children, and to invest in recruiting much-needed foster parents; - $5.5 million to expand the Bridges program for youth who emancipate from our system without achieving permanency; - $4.5 million to expand evidence-based programs like Ohio START, which Carroll County has been implementing the past few months, and 30 Days to Family to prevent children from coming into foster care; - $2.6 million to help our caseworkers be more efficient and productive in the field. “The Governor is saving a system in crisis and making wise investments,” Offenberger said. “These programs will alleviate the pressure on our county agency budget, which has struggled to pay rising costs. But more importantly, he is saving children and families by improving their chance for a better future,” she added. Carroll County is a longstanding member of Public Children Services Association of Ohio, which is working with county agencies across the state and other stakeholders to support the Governor’s proposals. “The Governor’s leadership, with the support of his Administration, will afford Ohio’s vulnerable children and families the quality services that will strengthen our state across the board. As an association, we stand ready to work with our local legislators on the Governor’s proposals,” Offenberger said.

Pastor’s Pen

When I was growing up my father worked as a bakery driver on the east side of Cleveland. Many of you reading this article will not know what I’m talking about since that job no longer exists. Convenience stores weren’t around back then, so bread, rolls, cakes and similar items were delivered to your door. Dad worked long hours, so I usually only saw him on the weekend. Because our family didn’t have much money, family activities often consisted of a ride in the car, with my mom preparing a picnic supper. When Sunday afternoon came around, we would hop in the car. Dad normally had a destination in mind, but he didn’t like to use roadmaps. As a result, we drove on many back roads that the average tourist would have avoided. But dad insisted he was never lost. He would say, “If we end up where we wanted to go, we weren’t lost. We were just taking a scenic route.” I use roadmaps, but I still love the back roads. Nevertheless, I have been lost many times – not on the highway but trying to find my way in life. There have been many times when I was not sure about what to do next. Family concerns, health problems, an uncertain future, and many other worries made me wonder if I was going in the right direction. One solution when we face such worries is to keep going and hope things turn out okay. But that is a risky road to travel. Thankfully we have a map that will show us the way and we need to use it. The words of Jesus are our roadmap. His words point us in the right direction in life. There was a time the disciples of Jesus were uncertain of where they were headed. Jesus explained, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” When we follow Jesus and allow Him to be the Way, we will never be lost. And the journey on such a spiritual highway will be filled with love, joy, hope and peace. Pastor Jim Painting

This St. Paddy’s Day, don’t rely on the ‘Luck o’ the Irish’ For decades, Americans across the country have come together to celebrate their Irish heritage (Irish or not) over a pint of green beer and community festivities. Sadly, all this merry-making can lead to dangerous driving conditions as party-goers head home. In 2017 alone, 59 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Paddy’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18). The act of drinking and driving can rip people from their friends and loved ones forever. For this reason, Safe Communities Carroll County is working to spread the message about the dangers of drunk driving. Even one drink can be one too many. If you’re heading out for the Irish festivities, plan ahead and remember: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving Tragically, March 17 has become a dangerous holiday on our nation’s roads. According to the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, during the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day holiday period, more than one-third (37%) of all motor vehicle crash fatalities involved drunk drivers. The early hours of March 18, 2017, were the most dangerous. Between midnight and 5:59 a.m., three-fourths (75%) of all crash fatalities involved drunk drivers. During the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period in Carroll County there were two crashes, none resulted in a fatality and none were alcohol related crashes! “St. Patrick’s Day should be a fun holiday for our community members, but we expect everyone to take responsibility for their actions,” said Natasha Yonley, Safe Communities coordinator. “Whether you’re driving yourself or your friends, make sure you stay sober or plan for a sober ride home. Remember: It’s not just about you. There are other people on the roads who want to get where they are going safely. Don’t let alcohol cause you to be a risk to yourself and others on the road. Drinking and driving is an act of selfishness. Before you put your keys in the ignition, remind yourself: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. If you feel a buzz, you are in no shape to drive.” Drunk driving isn’t the only risk on the road: Drug-impaired driving is also an increasing problem on our nation’s roads. If drivers are impaired by any substance—alcohol or drugs— they should not get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Driving

while impaired is illegal, period. The bottom line is this: If You Feel Different, You Drive Different. It’s that simple. Drinking and driving should never be combined. It’s essential to plan a sober ride in advance if the holiday celebration will include alcohol. The alternative could change your life, not to mention the lives of your passengers, of pedestrians, or of other drivers and passengers nearby. This holiday season, Safe Communities Carroll County urges drivers to designate a sober driver before heading out for the evening. If you plan on drinking, plan on not driving. Safe Communities Carroll County has partnered with three local restaurants to provide a designated driver incentive this year on Saint Patrick’s Day. Check out Knickers Bar and Grill for Designated Driver incentives. Also, check out the Safe Communities Facebook (www.facebook.com/ ccsafecommunities) for additional locations as they become available. Thank you to these local businesses for helping to acknowledge the importance of designating a driver. First and foremost: Plan ahead. If you plan to drink, plan for a sober driver to take you home. Is it your turn to be the designated driver? Take that role seriously—your friends are relying on you. Party with a Plan Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride service to get home safely. If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact Local Law Enforcement. Have a friend who is about to drive after drinking? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely. If you are buzzed, do not drive. Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. As of March 12, Carroll County has had one traffic-related fatality and Ohio has had 147 traffic-related fatalities. In 2018, at this same time Carroll County had two traffic related fatalities. Safe Communities Carroll County is led by the Carroll County General Health District.

Lest We Forget By CAPT. CHARLES PEARSON

U.S. Marine Corps, ret. Albert Braun was born Sept. 5, 1889, on a farm where the city of Los Angeles now sits. He grew to be a tall, muscular young man and 26 years later, he was ordained as a Franciscan friar. As Father Braun, his first assignment was a missionary among Mescalero Apaches in southern New Mexico, where he grew to love and respect the native culture. He diligently built the Mescalero church, St. Joseph’s Apache Mission, from stone and mortar he quarried by hand in the Sacramento Mountains. It is now on the National Registry of Historic Places. When the United States entered World War I, Father Braun served as an Army chaplain in France and caught shrapnel in his right jaw during the battle of the Argonne Forest. He bandaged it himself and continued, unarmed delivering last rites and helping the wounded through a bloody night that would ultimately earn him a Purple Heart. After World War I, he joined the Army Reserves and continued his missionary work in California and New Mexico. In 1940, a year after the Mescalero church was completed, Father Braun was called to active duty by the Army and assigned to the island of Corregidor in Manila Bay, Philippines. He was taken

prisoner by the Japanese in 1942 and survived the Bataan Death March. His ability to smuggle in bananas and vaccine for all the prisoners earned him the nickname “Al Capone” by his fellow prisoners. He suffered through torture, beatings and disease. He led the POWs in prayer and kept their spirits up while his weight fell from 195 to 115 pounds. He was liberated in 1945 and received the Legion of Merit and the Silver Star before retiring as a lieutenant colonel in 1949. After World War II, Father Braun taught school in a poor part of Phoenix, largely populated by Mexican-Americans. He also became a life member of the American Legion and served as department chaplain. In his later years, he received the Arizona Medal of Honor and was named to the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame. Most of our veterans continue to contribute in a very positive way to our communities throughout the United States, and elsewhere, after they are discharged or retire from the service. There are many untold interesting stories to be told. I encourage you all to ask those family members and friends about their service to their country. They themselves along with their stories should not be forgotten. Also, those on the battle field right now should not be forgotten. Please keep them in your prayers.

Letter to the Editor As I was motoring  down Route 43  to Carrollton to visit some folks in the Carroll Health Center (I like to refer to it as “The Cottage” because it looks like a cottage on the outside) jamming big time to Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On;” eating my donut; enjoying the ride when all of a sudden I saw a big billboard on the side of the road that said, “KEEP YOUR DOG INSIDE.” At first, I thought how cool it is that we are reminded to keep our pets inside in bad weather. But, once I scarfed down my donut and cleared my brain from the sugar, I said to myself, “Self. Why in the world do we need to put a reminder on a billboard to keep our dog inside due to 6-below degrees or tornado’s approaching or 100-degree summer days? I mean, I don’t  see billboards messaging “KEEP YOUR CHILDREN INSIDE.” Although, I do have a short story about that. I mean about keeping the kids outside. My mom and dad lived right next door to us here at the Lake. They came  here in 1967 and we moved here in 1970. Jimmy was 3, Jason was 1 and the girls came later. Eventually, the boys were in kindergarten/grade school. I LOVED that yellow bus. Loved it! Loved whoever invented that yellow bus. Get up in the morning; feed them; dressed them; bundled them up; gave them their lunch bag and hoped and prayed the big yellow  bus would be on time. Anyway, one January we had a very heavy snow storm. School was cancelled for almost 2 weeks. I knew it was cold outside, but having those boys inside day-in and day-out was nutso. So I bundled them up; put the snow boots on and out they went. I sat down in my wingbacked chair and gave a sigh of relief. I just didn’t realize how long they were out there when I got a call from my Mom. “Terry Rae! Do you know your children have been outside in the cold weather for an hour! Go get your boys and take them inside!” I gave some thought on what she told me to do, but I was in my  chair eating  a donut. “No, mom. They are not coming in! I have two more donuts to eat!” She  said, “Terry!  I am going to send your father outside and tell him to take your boys in your house!” The next thing I heard was my Dad  bringing  the boys in my house. As I looked at Jimmy’s and Jason’s rosy cold cheeks, my Dad said he was not going to leave them with me yet, but rather he was going to take them to their house for a little bit; let them warm up and then he will bring them back. I told him I appreciated that. Then away they went. A couple hours later, my Dad called to tell me the boys are coming home. My Dad was a peach. Calm, cool and collected. BUT HE had instructions for ME: “TERRY RAE. KEEP YOUR CHILDREN INSIDE!!”                                                                              (Love that billboard) Terry Vahila Malvern

Sherry’s Book Corner Hi kids! Have you ever been down and out and thought no one really cared? Think again! Somebody does care and loves you. I found this story very eye opening! You know, the kind that grabs at your heart and never lets go. Sometimes we need to read these types of stories to keep our mind in check with ourselves and the world. Just like our main character, Castle. Due to the way he is raised, he has a hard time doing what’s right, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t try. I think you will like another main character like I do. His name is Mr. Charles. He owns a small neighborhood market. Almost every day Castle would buy a package of sunflower seeds from Mr. Charles. Soon they became friends. Mr. Charles sensed that Castle had talent. Soon, he made up a special motto just for him. “You can’t be great if you’re late!” Now what do you suppose that means? You’ll just have to read the story to find out!

BEN PASIUK WINS STATE WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIP FOR CARROLLTON By JORDAN MILLER

Sports Editor

COLUMBUS - For three years, Ben Pasiuk has been so close. Three state runner-up finishes, but all of his work finally paid off. Saturday, March 9 at the Jerome Schottenstein Center, Pasiuk capped off his historic career for Carrollton with a Division II 160-lb. State Championship with a 6-2 decision over Norwalk’s Ethan Hernandez. After the first period, the match was scoreless. Pasiuk started the second period with an escape followed by Hernandez being hit with his second stall-call, giving Pasiuk a 2-0 lead. Pasiuk extended his lead to 6-1 with a pair of takedowns in the second period to seal the state championship. “It feels amazing,” Pasiuk said after winning the championship. “It’s a tremendous feeling. I don’t know anything better than this feeling. I couldn’t have done it without God...knowing that He’s there to push me through anything, with Him, anything is possible.” As soon as the clock struck zero, Pasiuk stood to his feet, acknowledged all the Warrior fans, including his grandpas, John and Jim, and

mother, Chris. After his hand was raised as champion, he then ran into his father’s arms, sharing a long embrace, as he watched his hard work and dedication to the sport finally pay off. “Honestly, this has been one of the best programs I think in Ohio, the support we have and the coaches we have, they’re always there pushing us. St. Paris Graham is always on top, but they recruit. We have all people who were born in Carrollton and raised there. It’s been great having all these people around me.” Pasiuk ends his season 44-1 and career with an outstanding 203-13 record. “I was pretty confident in him,” Coach Ken Pasiuk said following the championship match. “I’m just so excited for him. He worked hard and you can see what happened.” “Having my dad there, knowing he wants the best for me no matter what...having him there I’ve felt so comfortable,” Pasiuk said about his head coach father. This is Carrollton’s second state champion since 2017, Aidan Pasiuk. As for a dynasty? Coach Pasiuk remained humble and thanked the coaches who preceeded him. “It’s easy to coach here when you have a town like we have. The people who come to our matches and support our kids,” he said. “I

didn’t build that, that’s a lot of people. It takes a lot more than just one person to do that.” Carrollton senior Brandon Daniels won his opening match of the tournament with a 2:21 pin over Bay Village Bay’s Mason Cover but was knocked out of the championship conversation on the second day when Cole Hivnor of Mentor Lake Catholic defeated him in the championship quarterfinal by 12-7 decision. Daniels had one goal on his mind after the loss, finish third. He did just that, in style. He rebounded with a 17-10 win over Indian Valley’s Jake Armstrong in the consolation match to advance to the consolation semifinal. Down 6-5 to Indian Hill’s John Mark Williams with under :10 left in the match, it went to overtime when Williams was called for his second stall of the match, tying it at 6-6. Daniels knew he had a chance to win the match in overtime, and he wasted no time. Thirty seconds into overtime, Daniels shot on Williams and grabbed his leg and got in position to take him down to the mat, to win it 8-6. He stood up and beat his chest, yelling “let’s go!” He couldn’t have shown any more emotion after advancing to the third-place match. It was nothing but a revenge match for Daniels. He was set to face Hivnor again.

After the first one-minute period, the match remained 0-0. Daniels took control in the second period, throwing Hivnor to his back and pinning him one-minute into the second period, placing third and ending his career with a record of 171-48. When asked about the high he felt after winning his last high school match, Daniels said: “I’m definetly going to remember that one.” “It’s rough,” Daniels said about wrestling his last match. “I’m going to miss it. A lot. I want to thank my parents for all the support, my coaches, Benny for grinding every day in the wrestling room.” “Having Brandon [Daniels] as a partner all year - we pushed each other and told each other we were going to be state champs,” Ben Pasiuk said. “He lost his one match but he still came back and got third. That shows his character and how determined he is. We’ve been working and busting our butts for this oppurtunity.” As a team, the Warriors finished 10th as a team at state with 44 points. Three others Carrollton wrestlers qualified for the state tournament: Domanick Speelman, David Woolever and Alex Carrothers. Photos by Jordan Miller

Carrollton hires state championship winning coach to lead football program By JORDAN MILLER

Sports Editor

Jim Tsilimos

It didn’t take long for the Carrollton Exempted Village School District to fill their vacant football coaching position. On January 25th, Carrollton’s Head football coach announced his resignation. March 12th, the Carrollton school board approved the hiring of former, long-time Lisbon coach Jim

Tsilimos. “Coach Tsilimos brings a similar type of experience as Phil (Mauro),” Carrollton Superintendent Dr. Dave Quattrochi said. “We are very fortunate to have someone with his expertise come in and coach our fine young men.” Tsilimos spent 25 years with the Lisbon Blue Devils in two stints, being the school’s all-time wins leader with 146. He hung up his whistle in

Malvern junior Tyler Banta (left) wrestles Oak Harbor’s Cameron Dickman during last week’s championship state preliminary match.

Banta knocked out of state tournament on day one

COLUMBUS - For the first time in nearly a decade, the Malvern Hornets had a wrestler qualify for the state tournament. Malvern junior Tyler Banta qualified to state but had a short

trip as he lost his first match to Cameron Dickman of Oak Harbor by a major decision of 17-8. Versailles’ Jacob Poling knocked Banta out of the

2017 but says he’s missed coaching. “After 60 days of retirement, I was kind of bored,” Tsilimos said. “I told my wife, I’m used to being around kids, not retired people.” During his time with the Blue Devils, Tsilimos led the team to a Division V State Championship and 14-0 season in 1995. His team appeared in the Regional Finals in 2003. He’s made eight playoff trips with his three most recent in

2015-2017. “His record speaks for itself,” Dr. Quattrochi said. “I think he will be a great role model and coach at Carrollton. We’re excited to have him.” Tsilimos plans on bringing his expertise to the Carrollton field for the 2019 season. “The number one thing is I’m back in coaching,” Tsilimos said. “I’m going to come to work every day and give 100 percent. That’s how I was raised and

that’s how I learned how to coach.” Tsilimos was named Columbiana County Coach of the Year six times, as recent as 2016. Tsilimos inherits a team which went 5-5 last season and 3-7 the season before under Mauro. “We’re definitely going to run the football and play great run defense,” Tsilimos said. He added that he does plan on keeping Mauro’s coaching staff.

Burress went 0-2 in the tournament. Mueller lost his first match, rebounded by winning his second match but was knocked out of the tournament in his second consolation match on Friday. Decker earned himself a spot on the podium with a 1-0 decision over Sandusky Perkins’ Max Oprzadek. Decker wrestled for 7th place and fell by an 8-0 major decision to Batavia’s Brandon Sauter.

CHS grad places fifth at NCAA nationals CLEVELAND 2017 Carrollton High School graduate Aidan Pasiuk wrestled his way to a fifth-place finish at the Division II NCAA National wrestling tournament last week. Pasiuk lost his opening match of the tournament 3-2 to and fought his way through to make it onto the podium. “"I felt that I wrestled tough, considering I had to work my way back after getting beaten my first match," Pasiuk said in an interview with Andrew Woodley, Wheeling Jesuit’s Sports Information Director.

"There is always room for improvement, and I'll get to show that next year. To be in a team race feels awesome. We walked in this tournament doubted and now are one of the best programs in the country! This just shows where you can be with hard work and discipline." Pasiuk defeated Brody Conner of UIndy 9-2 in the second round of prelims. He went on to pin Bailey Kelly of Maryville in 1:18 and Griffin Osing of Southwest Minn. St. 18-1.

Cardinals basketball team advances to regionals with win over Garaway By CHRIS MODRANSKI

Sports Writer

Dover – Sandy Valley has had a tough time getting past the Garaway Pirates over the years. The Cardinals have dropped 15 of their last 16 to the Pirates during the last 10 years. That record doesn’t matter anymore. Sandy Valley (19-6) took down Garaway 67-53 to take the Division III District Title this past Friday in front of a packed house at Dover High School to

fouling each play. Fortunately, for the Cardinals their foul shooting was on point converting 16 of 20 attempts securing the victory and sending the Cardinals to the Regional Finals. Sandy Valley’s Demetrius Evens led the way with 16 points. Brodie Kelley added 15 points while Dante Tucci chipped in 14 points. The Cardinals will travel to Athens to play at the Convocation Center Thursday at 6:15 PM against Wheelersburg Pirates.

advance to regionals. This is the third time in school history Sandy Valley has won the District Title and the first time since 1990. The Cardinals got out to an early lead and controlled the game from the tipoff. At one point Sandy Valley had a 20point lead over the Pirates. Despite the lead the Pirates didn’t go away. The rallied off of Braden Yoder’s game-high 25 points, which included seven threes. The Pirates came within five points halfway through the final frame before resorting to

Dover – The Malvern Hornets fell by a final score of 49-40 to the Strasburg Tigers boys’ basketball team Tuesday night during the Division IV District Semifinal matchup held at Dover High School. This is the third time the Hornets (18-8) have lost to the Tigers (19-7) this season. Malvern’s defense was stout early on and kept Strasburg off the scoreboard for the first 4:30 of the game. Malvern’s Kenneth Martin got the Hornets on the scoreboard early after receiving a backdoor cut from Derk Hutchinson which he converted into a layup. The Hornets struggled to score over the next couple of minutes until John

Browning converted a pull-up jumper in the paint. Strasburg’s Mitch Neidenthal ended their drought with a three-pointer which energized the Tiger faithful. The Tiger’s connected on two more straight shots before Browning connected from short range as the first quarter buzzer sounded. Strasburg led 8-6 headed into the second frame. Malvern opened the second quarter by sending the Tigers to the charity line on three of the first four possessions in the frame. The Tigers connected on six of their seven foul shots. Malvern would remain within striking distance at the end of the quarter only trailing by three points at halftime, 19-16. Strasburg came out of the intermission to face off against a feisty Hornet defense which

applied full-court pressure and set double-team traps all over the court. Strasburg’s starting five, all seniors, was able to rely on their experience to fight their way out of the defensive schemes and continued to pour the ball into the basket securing the victory and a trip to the District Title game. Malvern’s John Browning dumped in19 points (9 in the fourth quarter) while Michael Minor and Derk Hutchinson each added eight points. Strasburg’s brothers Mike and Mitch Neidenthal combined for 29 points. DJ Seward poured in 10 points and Jacob Farthing added eight points (six for six from the charity line). Strasburg’s season came to an end on Friday night as they lost to the Hiland Hawks 58-48.

Tips for staying safe with keyless system Auto manufacturers have long embraced technology that can streamline the automotive experience for drivers. For example, several years ago keyless entry and ignition systems were introduced, initially on high-end vehicles before they became standard on many other models. Keyless entry systems require a fob, which sends a signal to the receiver inside the vehicle. The fob transmits a low-frequency code to the car’s internal computer system, which engages the locks and will allow the driver to push a button on the dashboard or console to start the vehicles. The fob can be stashed away in a pocket or purse and still send the signal, which makes it convenient for drivers. Drivers with arthritis or hand injuries also may find keyless systems an asset. Because fobs work on wireless systems, hackers potentially can intercept the fob-to-car signal. That enables a thief to not only open the vehicle’s doors, but also to potentially drive away as well. Even though the fob/ car security pairing is unique and can create billions of codes, researchers at Radboud University in the Netherlands and the University of Birmingham found that, by intercepting the wireless signal just twice, they

Keyless entry and ignition systems might be convenient, but they require caution and common sense.

could narrow down the possible combinations from billions to just 200,000. After that, a computer can figure out the code in just half an hour and unlock the car. Potentially, a thief can gather car codes as drivers enter their vehicles during the day, then return later to steal a number of cars. Thieves who purchase signal amplifiers also pose a threat. These amplifiers magnify the reach of the fob signal so that a vehicle owner can be in his or her house with the fob, but the thief can walk up to the car and open it — even if the fob is far enough away that it should not

engage. One way to circumvent this is to buy a signal-blocking pouch that can hold the key fob. Also, an old-school steering wheel or gear shift lock is an effective way to provide another layer of protection. Drivers also should be aware of their surroundings as they approach their vehicles. Thieves may count on keyless entry systems to be able to hop into a vehicle once the owner gets within range and drive away. Vehicle technology thrives to make driving as convenient as possible, but some features also may make things more convenient for prospective thieves.

Tips on how to reduce vehicle maintenance costs Major repairs to a vehicle can be expensive. When unanticipated repairs are necessary, drivers’ budgets can be thrown out of whack, potentially causing a domino effect that compromises their ability to pay their bills on time. Whether your vehicle is brand new, a few years old or reaching milestones on its odometer with every mile driven, there are ways to care for the vehicle so you aren’t caught off guard by costly repairs down the road. • Read your owner’s manual. A vehicle owner’s manual is a great resource that can help drivers keep their cars and trucks running strong for years. Every vehicle, whether it’s purchased brand new from a dealership or preowned from a preowned dealer or private citizen, should come with an owner’s manual. Don’t worry if you purchased a preowned vehicle from a private citizen who lost the manual, as many manufacturers have manuals available for free on their websites. Print manuals may cost some money. Drivers may be able to find their manuals elsewhere online on a site such as Justgivemethedamnmanual.com, which has thousands of manuals from various automakers available. Once you have the manual in hand or on your computer, visit the maintenance section to familiarize yourself with the manufactur-

er’s recommended maintenance guidelines. Adhering to those guidelines is a great way to keep your car running strong for years on end, and it might just save you from the hassle of sudden expensive repairs. • Protect the engine. The engine is arguably the most expensive part of your vehicle to replace, so protecting it should be a priority. Routine oil changes and oil filter replacements is a great way to protect the engine. Manufacturer guidelines vary

in regard to oil change and oil filter replacement intervals, but such recommendations can be found in your manual. • Hone your DIY skills. Drivers also can save money on maintenance by doing some of their own minor vehicle repairs. YouTube is home to many DIY tutorials that can teach drivers how to change their own oil and replace the filters on their vehicles. Routine repairs are relatively easy, and many tutorials can walk you through them step-by-step. Depending on how much you drive, learning to do your own minor vehicle repairs may save you hundreds of dollars per year. • Perform routine inspections. Older vehicles may or may not alert drivers via noises or leaks that they’re in need of repair. Routine inspections of hoses, brakes and tires, which should always be properly inflated, can let drivers know if their vehicles are experiencing problems before those problems grow and become something costly. Vehicle maintenance costs tend to be most expensive when drivers ignore routine maintenance or miss signs that their cars and trucks might be struggling. By adhering to manufacturer maintenance guidelines and paying attention to their vehicles, drivers can reduce the cost of keeping their cars on the road.

Seniors can safely stay behind the wheel A greater sense of independence is often cited as the reason so many young people anxiously await the day they earn their drivers’ licenses. But the connection between driving and independence is not lost on seniors, either. Aging can take its toll on drivers, prompting such drivers’ families to feel as if their loved ones’ ability to safely operate motor vehicles has been compromised. However, many seniors can still safely operate motor vehicles, and those who do can take steps to ensure they’re as safe as possible behind the wheel. • Avoid driving on days when aches and pains are strong. Aches and pains are common side effects of aging, and seniors know that some days are better than others. Seniors’ ability to control their vehicles may be compromised on days when stiffness, aches or pains seem particularly strong, so it’s best to avoid driving during these times. Fatigue may set in on

days when aches and pains require extra effort to perform relatively simple tasks, and drivers of all ages should avoid driving while tired. • Don’t skip medical checkups. Few seniors may look forward to their medical checkups, but visits to the doctor can reveal issues that can help seniors be safer on the road. Schedule routine vision exams so eyeglass prescriptions are always up-todate. In addition, seniors should discuss hearing screenings with their physicians so they can ensure they can always hear sirens and other motorists while on the road. Great strides have been made in regard to helping people with fading hearing hear better, and seniors would be wise to take advantage of such advancements, which include hearing aids that can be connected to smartphones. • Familiarize yourself with medication side effects. Whether they do so temporarily or permanently, many seniors take medications, and every medi-

cation comes with side effects. When filling a new prescription, carefully read the dosage and description label to ensure that it’s safe to drive while taking the medicine. Make note of how you feel when taking a new prescription, avoiding driving if the medication makes you feel fatigued or drowsy or affects your motor functions. If the side effects of a new prescription are making it difficult to safely operate a vehicle, discuss potential alternatives with your physician. • Avoid driving in certain conditions. Driving in inclement weather, during rush hour and at night makes many drivers uncomfortable, regardless of their age. But such conditions can be especially dangerous for aging drivers whose vision and reaction times might be fading. Seniors who avoid driving in harsh conditions and heavy traffic may be more comfortable behind the wheel, thereby reducing their risk of accident or injury. Seniors need not give up their

drivers’ licenses at the first signs of aging. But adjusting certain

behaviors and exercising extra caution can help these men

and women stay safe behind the wheel.

Check these fluids before your next road trip For many traveling enthusiasts, few things are more enticing than the open road. Road trips have long been popular, and that popularity appears to be on the rise. According to a report from MMGY Global, a travel and hospitality marketing firm, road trips represented 39 percent of vacations taken by United States travelers in 2016. Road trips also remain popular in Canada, where vast, rugged terrain makes for idyllic trips. Before embarking on road trips, motorists would be wise to inspect their vehicles to ensure their getaways are not derailed by car troubles. • Brake fluid: Squeaky brakes are not the only potential indicator of brake problems. Brake fluid, which should always be topped off before beginning a road trip, also might shed light on potentially serious problems. According to the National Motorists Association, brake fluid

looks honey-like and translucent when fresh. A puddle beneath a vehicle that is clear to brown and slick indicates a brake fluid leak, which can ultimately lead to a complete failure of the brakes. The NMA recommends brake fluid be changed at least once every three to four years. • Transmission fluid: When fresh, transmission fluid is red, darkening over time. However, transmission fluid should never appear brown or black, which indicates potential internal damage to the transmission. To determine if there are any issues with the transmission fluid, the NMA recommends drivers wipe a cool dipstick between their thumb and index finger. If even the slightest bit of grit is felt when wiping the dipstick, the transmission is likely in need of work. • Oil: Drivers should change their vehicles’ oil before embarking on road trips, especially if such trips will be lengthy.

Before embarking on road trips, motorists would be wise to inspect their vehicles to ensure their getaways are not derailed by car troubles.

The NMA notes that fresh oil is light to dark amber and translucent, and that is how oil typically looks immediately after

an oil change. Oil darkens over time, and that is natural (black oil indicates it’s time for an oil change). However, oil that ap-

pears cloudy or milky indicates that coolant is getting into the

Develop a vehicle maintenance schedule The oft-sudden expense of vehicle repairs can throw monthly budgets into disarray. Maintaining a routine service schedule is one way for drivers to keep repair costs down. The online automotive resources Edmunds.com says many car owners do not adequately prepare for scheduled maintenance, and may not give maintenance a thought until it’s too late. The first step drivers take upon purchasing a new or preowned vehicle should be to familiarize themselves with the vehicle’s owner’s manual, which is filled with valuable information and likely includes maintenance interval recommendations. Next, drivers should learn about their vehicle, which is particularly relevant when buying a preowned vehicle. Getting to know how the car or truck rides, as well as any sounds it may make, can provide drivers

with a solid foundation they can then use to keep their cars running strong. Routine service typically includes tire rotation, oil changes and topping off of fluids. So just how long between service appointments can a car go? Here are some generalized estimates. • Oil change: Oil chemistry and engine technology have improved so much that most cars can go well beyond the once-recommended 3,000 mile interval between oil changes. Now many vehicle manufacturers recommend between 5,000 and 10,000 miles between changes, advises Edmunds. Drivers should err on the side of caution if they do a lot of stop-and-go driving and short trips. Other drivers may want to invest in vehicles that have oil change maintenance minders built in. A light or countdown will come on the dashboard, indicating when the oil

has reached the end of its usefulness. • Tire rotation: Rotating tires helps prolong the life of the tires and alleviates uneven tread and wear. During the rotation, each tire is removed and relocated to a different position to ensure that all the tires will wear evenly. Michelin Tires states that tires should be rotated around every six months, or between 6,000 and 8,000 miles. • Vehicle fluids: Your best bet is to see what the manufacturer recommends in regard to fluids such as transmission fluid, differential oil, brake fluids, coolant, etc. Some transmissions need regular maintenance, while others can go 150,000 miles between changes, according to the vehicle information site The Drive. Coolant typically can last 100,000 miles. For these types of changes, it may be best to go to a mechanic or service center familiar with your

oil, perhaps due to gasket problems. Drivers who are not getting their vehicles’ oil changed before a road trip should at least check their oil before leaving to inspect the color of the oil and ensure the vehicle has enough oil. • Windshield washer fluid: The unknown of the open road is part of what makes it so appealing. While many road trippers plan their trips during the summer and fall when the weather tends to be both pleasant and predictable, there’s no guarantee inclement weather won’t rear its ugly head. Filling the windshield washer fluid reservoir before embarking on a trip ensures drivers’ visibility won’t be adversely affected by unforeseen issues that can soil windshields. Checking fluids before embarking on a road trip can help drivers avoid breakdowns and ensure a safe, fun trip.

er), the cool football player.

Browse ‘N Buy expands and plans grand re-opening By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

Browse ’N Buy of Carrollton will be hosting a grand re-opening for their store located at 789 N. Lisbon St. Operations manager for Community Hospice Browse ‘N Buy stores in Carrollton, Dover and Uhrichsville, Holly Flickinger, said this is just a great time for their store. “The Hospice offices that were located in the building have been moved to Canton Road. We had three rooms at this location to set up our items for sale. It was always very full. We used the one back room for volunteers to sort and price items to be offered for sale,” said Flickinger. Flickinger said they went from 2,200 square feet to over 2,800 square feet. The Dover store is larger than Carrollton’s but the 37 members of the volunteer staff are kept very busy handling donations and selling merchandise, gently used and brand new items, to customers. Carol VanFossen, Carrollton Browse ‘N Buy store manager, said with the Hospice offices moving out, it just opened up

the rest of the building to showcase merchandise for sale. “For the first time, we can take large furniture like couches, tables, stoves, maybe even a refrigerator. We have a room for furniture, a library nook with books and VHS tapes, DVD’s and CD’s. We have a children’s room with clothing, toys, books and much more. We have a room for linens, tablecloths, bedding and pillows. We have a kitchen room. And the main room at the entrance has the men and women’s clothing and shoes,” said VanFossen. VanFossen said they’d sold their first clothes dryer at Carrollton and sold a table and chairs before it was even unloaded into the building. The funds from all the sales of any of the items stay in the community. The funds are used to help those in need. “It’s a feel good job. We take care of anyone in need. Fire victims, someone who’s been flooded out, anyone who needs help. We are here,” said VanFossen. VanFossen has been with hospice for ten years with four and a half years managing the Carrollton store. She said the community is giving more than ever and now with all this room she thought they would be even

busier. The Dover store opened about 20 years ago and last year a store was opened in Uhrichsville. “We can do so much more now. No one is ever turned away. When someone’s insurance and Medicare have been used up, then we can step in and help. We’ve also started a bereavement camp which is helping a lot of people,” said VanFossen. Van Fossen said the entire organization is successful only because of the volunteers. She said they have 37 at Carrollton. She said they come in early, they stay late and they work very hard to keep it all going. “It takes a lot of dedication and the volunteers are essential to the day to day operations of the store,” said Flickinger. It is recommended before anyone brings large pieces of furniture to donate to the store, they should call ahead to make sure the store has volunteers available at that time to help unload and move it into the showroom. Beds, dresses and other furniture are accepted but they are not permitted to sell any mattresses. They are usually just placed outside of the store and if anyone wants them, they can have them.

Enjoying the new furniture room at Hospice Browse ‘N Buy on Lisbon Street are store manager Carol VanFossen, Holly Flickinger, Operations Manager for all three Hospice stores in Dover, Uhrichsville, and Carrollton, and Carrollton Assistant Manager Connie Days.

Assistant store manager Connie Days said they will accept donations of seasonal items year round. They have storage areas where Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc. are stored until time for that season. The store is open Monday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Van-

Fossen said they will probably expand store hours to be open every day until 5 p.m. in the near future. The grand re-opening of the Carrollton store will be March 29 and 30. The entire store will be priced at half off of everything in the store, except for furniture. VanFossen said she thanks the community for their support.

The customers like the fact that the funds from purchases go directly for patient help, according to VanFossen. Flickinger said if you haven’t been to the store, you need to stop in. She said you’ll probably find Carol there to say hello and offer to show you around. Flickinger said Carol and the staff make you feel right at home.

Airport seeks grant to finish fence project By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

The Carroll County Airport Authority board approved a grant application for funding to complete the perimeter fence project. Consultant Lance Wanamaker told the board the application was not completed and would need to be reviewed, approved, and signed by the board. Since

the deadline for the grant submission was before the next scheduled meeting of the board in May, Wanamaker said they would have to have a special meeting to handle this task and suggested a special meeting be held March 25. Instead, the board chose to give blanket approval to Wanamaker to finish the application and submit it. Wanamaker said with the grant

application in place they can then prepare to ask for bids for the project. Board President John Cross announced that only one person, Dave Fitzgerald, has expressed interest in taking the job of airport manager. Cross said he would appoint a committee to prepare a list of duties and compensation for the position. “After he has seen that list, and still wants it, he can present his

resignation,” said Cross. Fitzgerald is a current and longtime member of the airport authority board. It was ruled by the county prosecutor and the Attorney General’s office that you cannot be a member of the airport board and also hold the managers position. Member Harry Stansbury questioned if the manager’s job had been advertised. Member Karen Tuttle said that it had been listed

on the airport’s website. Commissioner Lewis Mickley informed the board that he had looked into who were the members of the Airport Zoning Board and the Airport Zoning Board of Appeals. Mickley said a letter was to have been sent to board members but no one said they had received it. Mickley said he received an opinion from the county prosecutor that the three county

commissioners were to be on the Airport Zoning Board. Although that was established when the airport board was created, it had not been kept up over the years and the prosecutor said that any action at this point from commissioners would be challenged if brought to court. “We’re going to hire someone that will tell us how to get there. We need to get the FAA happy again,” said Mickley.
