Garrettsville Skate Park Relocated for Upgrade The Garrettsville Skate Park is no passing fancy. The skateboard course was established 12 years ago on the site of the tennis courts at Village Park across from the library, giving young skate boarders a safe place off the streets to practice their moves. Over the years, the equipment became worn out from use and weathering, so the village recently locked up the skate park for safety’s sake. Just when it seemed the park had run its course, interest in renovating the equipment has been revived, but in a new location. In order to accommodate Garfield High School’s new tennis program, the skate park has been moved to the Park Avenue park across from the YMCA, and the former tennis courts at Village Park will be restored. According to Garrettsville Mayor Rick Patrick, “The skateboard park will be a better fit on Park Avenue, where it’s up front and visible from the street. It was too secluded at the South Street location. Neighbors should give it a chance and hopefully it will work out.” Patrick admits there have been a few concerns raised already, with some Park Street residents worried about the amount of noise, littering, loitering and smoking that may accompany the skate park. The mayor encourages neighbors to assume the best, but call the police if there’s a problem. “If you bought a house next to the park, you need to expect some noise,” he said. Existing equipment was moved to the Park Street location earlier this month, but a timeline on installing new equipment depends on funding. In May, Village Council member Becky Harrington reported that the total park improvements project would cost $42,946, with the village portion being approximately $10,440. The Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary has offered to contribute $7,000 toward the project, which should, in effect, reduce the village’s total contribution. The project includes restoring the four tennis courts and the basketball court across from the library, and establishing the skate park on Park Avenue (costs for new equipment not included). According to meeting minutes, village council also approved a resolution requesting additional funding through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources NatureWorks Grant Program. This program provides up to 75% reimbursement assistance for local

government subdivisions (townships, villages, cities, counties, park districts, joint recreation districts, and conservancy districts) for the acquisition, development, and rehabilitation of recreational areas. Grant approvals will be made in September. Danny Lassiter, who helped establish the original skate park in 2005, is also a driving force behind the upgraded skate park plan. He has established a GoFundMe page to generate $10,000 for rebuilding and upgrading the Garrettsville Skate Park. According to the GoFundMe page, “The original park lasted over 12 years with no maintenance and is in need of repair and upgrade. We took a poll at James A. Garfield grades 7 thru 12, over 180 kids participated with over 60% saying they used or would use the park. The park will be relocated from original site and moved to tennis court in front of YMCA. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.” Harrington says that Lassiter, along with Greg Gotthardt, is donating all of the labor necessary to relocate and rebuild the skate park. They spent a lot of time growing up at the park and value its positive impact on their lives. Anyone interested in volunteering or donating toward this project, call Danny Lassiter at (330) 671-4482. Harrington is an enthusiastic booster of the skate park, saying, ““There’s nothing bad about it. It’s all good! At this point, we’re doing everything we can with what we’ve got. It may not be beautiful yet, but it will be usable at Park Avenue this summer.”

Treasurer Unveils Email Billing, New Payment Options
R avenna – Portage County taxpayers now have more and lower-cost options for paying their property tax bills, thanks to an agreement reached recently between the office of County Treasurer Brad Cromes and Point & Pay, LLC. The company, which offers payment processing services to 26 county treasurers and over 150 other entities in Ohio, began processing payments for Portage County earlier this month. Portage is the first county in Ohio to utilize Point & Pay’s full suite of services. “This really expands our capacity to accept different forms of payment, in ways that are cheaper and simpler for our taxpayers,” said Cromes. “It even offers us the ability to send our taxpayers email bills and text notices if they want, which improves the customer experience and will lower our costs.” Point & Pay President Kevin Connell added, “As the nation’s leading provider of electronic payments processing services for government agencies, Point & Pay is already working throughout Ohio to make it easier for citizens to pay taxes and fees. We are grateful to Treasurer Cromes for the opportunity to bring our next-generation products and high-quality service to Portage County taxpayers.” In addition to email billing and text messaging, taxpayers can use the Treasurer’s new online payment tool to make one-time payments, or to set up an account that will allow them to “claim” parcels, view their tax bills, and track their payment histories. Taxpayers making payments in-person at the Treasurer’s Office will also now have the option of
using credit and debit cards – the first time such services have been available at the office since the late 1990s. “If you can use it to buy milk at Giant Eagle, you should be able to use it to pay your taxes,” Treasurer Cromes added. “We think these upgrades are a big step in that direction.” Cromes shared that the Treasurer’s Office is in on-going discussions with Point & Pay to further improve payment options in the future, with “chip” payments, ApplePay, and other upgrades likely to come in the months ahead. The fees Point & Pay charges taxpayers for use of their services are lower than under prior agreements, as well. Payments made by e-check will cost $1.50 each, while VISA debit card transactions will cost $3.95. All other credit/debit card transactions will carry a fee of 2.5% of the total transaction cost, with a minimum cost of $2.00. Under the Treasurer’s prior vendor, most credit card transactions triggered a fee equaling 3% of the total transaction cost, without the option of e-check or debit card payment. For a full listing of payment options, including instructions for signing up for the new services, taxpayers should visit the Treasurer’s website at http://www.co.portage.oh.us/ treasurer/Payments.htm, or call the office at 330-297-3586. The second installment of property tax bills for the year will be mailed later this week, with payment due by close of business on July 17, 2017.

Crestwood Middle School Recognizes Local Heroes Stacy Turner | Contributing Reporter
Mantua - Nearly every year since 2010, Kim Marfy and fellow staff at the Crestwood Middle School have encouraged eighth-graders to log volunteer efforts for a charity of their choice. At the end of the school year, participating students have the opportunity to win $100 on behalf of their charity. The number of kids who participate each year ranges from five to 15, according to Ms. Marfy. This year, CMS boasted 11 impressive students, making the selection panel’s job a difficult one. “In January, our students were challenged to complete 12 hours of community service,” Ms. Marfy explained. “This challenge was made in an effort to meet a social studies standard that shows the connection between civic/political engagement and reaching personal goals. It was entirely optional and there were no requirements as to where a student had to complete their service.” She noted that volunteer options within the school were made available to students for whom transportation was a concern. In addition to completing the minimum hours of service, students were required to submit documentation about where they worked, and why they chose the particular organization. In 2010 when the program began, Amber Harris and Rebecca Pochedly were honored as Heroes, and their charities, 4H Doggie Brigade and the Animal Protective League, were awarded $100 each. In 2011, Morgan Saffles earned that honor, resulting in a $100 donation to her charity, the Parrot Sanctuary. The following year, Morgan Faldowski won, with Hattie Larlham as the ultimate winner that year. In 2013, foster children received tote bags to help transport their belongings, courtesy of Sydney Kulla. The winner the following year, Kayla Grubbs, passed along $100 to her charity, the Portage County Dog Warden. The CMS Hero program wasn’t held in 2015, but returned in 2016, where Maddelyn Rennecker earned donations for the Garrettsville Food Cupboard and the 4H. This year, 11 eighth graders each completed a minimum of 12 service hours and an application describing their reasons for volunteering and the charity of their choice. In no particular order, those students and their charities are highlighted. First, Payton McMahon earned a total of 13 service hours helping out with a variety of causes, including the Hiram Rummage sale, the Pit and Skit, and the FCCLA Princess Ball, a father/daughter dance that hosted 325 fathers and daughters. He shared that his motivation for
Dear James A. Garfield Class of 2017, The family of Melana Matson and the Friends of Melana Foundation thank you for your kind and generous donation in memory of Melana. In the time of your lives when you are looking to your future, you have taken the time to remember Melana, when your last memories of her were as a fourth grader. Your selfless giving and rememberance of her brings us GREAT support and strength to continue our goal of finding a cure for childrens’ brain cancer. As graduates, we congratulate you and applaud you for all your accomplishments. Melana’s hope and light shines on through each of you. Wherever life takes you, her spirit is just a thought away to be your friend. May God bless you and guide you to fulfill your dreams, Norm and Joyce Fashing, Melana’s grandparents
volunteering as wanting to be a role model for others. Next, is Gina Irwin, who spent her service time at the Akron Canton Regional FoodBank where she re-boxed and labeled food. Ally Sabol, another candidate, focused on improving her local community by volunteering at St Joseph’s Church as an Altar Server, and Christmas caroling. In addition, she tutored and counted box tops at school, and helped out in her neighborhood by provided babysitting and gardening services. In her application, Ally shared how easy it was to brighten someone’s day, by just taking a few minutes out of her own day. Beka Butterfield loved the experience of working at the Fieldstone Farms Therapeutic Riding Centers, where she tacked up horses, led classroom and riding lessons, walked beside beginning riders, helped with general horse care at the stables. Beka found great rewards in the welcoming, forgiving environment the riding center provides to its clients, and plans to continue volunteering there. As a Young Marine, Mike Coleman realized that some Portage County children wouldn’t have a great Christmas and that bothered him. He got involved with the Toys for Tots program to help insure that deserving kids would have a happy holiday. He also wanted to make sure the Mantua Police and Fire Departments were proud of their vehicles; he spent hours on a regular basis keeping the ambulances, fire trucks and police cars clean -- something helpful, but not on most people’s radar. As a gifted student, Lydia Faldowski enjoys helping others who struggle academically. She used her gifts to help out in the CMS Writing Center and during her time with Mrs. Reece’s class at the Primary School. She enjoyed helping kindergarteners learn the alphabet and sight words and helping middle schoolers with writing assignments. And those students earned better grades, in part because Lydia was there to assist. Similarly, as a child of two teachers, Lillian Engelhart was drawn to spend her 15 volunteer hours with the afterschool-tutoring program at the Intermediate School. In addition, she also completed 12 hours coaching in the CMS Writing Center and spent many hours serving community meals at her church. Community service drew in Bryce Pruszynski, who submitted 17.5 service hours, much of it with the Kids Weekend Meals Program, which provides Friday backpacks containing breakfast, lunch and snack items for the weekend for needy students at the Primary and Intermediate Schools. In addition, he worked a clothing drive at his church, and raked leaves for some elderly residents, as well. And since helping the community build a new school was a personal goal, Bryce worked with the Citizens for Crestwood Committee to promote the issue. According to CMS teacher Kim Marfy, there was very tough competition to be named the #1 CMS Hero of the year. So much so, that the panel determined the task to name just one hero impossible. “So, for the first time since 2012, we chose two winners,” Ms. Marfy beamed, “Raeanne Quiggle and Nolan Wysong.” The first winner, Raeann Quiggle, completed service hours in three areas: at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, The Aurora Memorial Library, and with her Girl Scout Troop. She explained that she loves the idea that she just made someone’s life easier and she just might have changed the trajectory of someone’s day. At her church she served at the community meals and the Christmas Boutique. At the library she worked with the Summer Reading Program. A donation in Raeann’s name was made to St. Joe’s Church. The next winner, Nolan Wysong, has completed e Th
all his service hours at the Akron Canton Regional Foodbank. His motivation is simple -- he believes that food is a basic human need that all people should have access to. Nolan is especially mindful of the hungry children who benefit, and considers his service as a way to nourish not only their bodies, but also their minds. Initially, he was reluctant to log his hours and call attention to himself, but later reconsidered. Nolan explained in his application, “since 400 people can be fed with the $100 prize money that accompanies the CMS Hero of the Year designation, a little attention is worth it”. In addition to having two community-minded candidates named as winners, Ms. Marfy shared that an unprecedented third candidate was recognized, as well. Zoe Simmons (pictured below) logged an impressive 38 ser vice hou rs within the Crestwood C om mu n it y. She divided her time a mong t he CMS Writing Center, the talent show as the mixing engineer, the track team, and the high school soccer team. She also worked countless hours an in effort to pass the recent bond issue so that a new school could be built. Zoe completed her application by sharing, “I would like to request that in the event that I do win, the prize be donated to the CMS Student Sunshine fund, as I find the very principles of the fund embody what I believe in--helping others in the community have a lesser load to carry, and be able to feel welcomed in a community of kindness.” When the CMS Heroes panel read Zoe’s application, they were touched by her maturity and foresight. When they shared her story, a group of anonymous donors collected a $100 donation in her name, for the CMS Student Sunshine Fund, which provides material and financial support for CMS students in need or crisis as determined by the school counselor. Ms. Marfy acknowledged, “Thank you to the PTO and to Mrs. Schmidt who dipped into her Principal’s Fund to support our CMS Heroes. And thank you to the anonymous donors for the Sunshine Fund Donation.” She continued, “Most of all, thank you to these amazing students who rose to the challenge -- You make us so very proud.”

Town Trotters Summer Plan
Submitted by Ryleigh Gough The Town Trotters 4-H Clubâ€™s summer begins with weekly riding meetings. 4-H clubs throughout Portage County go to the Randolph Fairgrounds and prepare themselves and their horses for the Friday night shows, fair and other upcoming shows.

The Wheels On The Bus...
Iva Walker | Columnist The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go…. Wait! We’re not moving. So that was one part of the saga. Wait until you hear the rest of it. Our intrepid band of Quiz Masters (James A. Garfield’s Academic Challenge team) was off to national competition in Chicago, catching a charter in Streetsboro to join other teams from northeast Ohio and trek west for a first-ever contest of this kind— the big time! The trip to Chicago was estimated to take about seven hours (We were going to be over by O’Hare Airport) and we started off in fine fettle, loaded with luggage—I’m an over-packer but the guys showed up with minimal encumbrances, hopefully, clean underwear—high hopes and tons of snacks; the pioneers would have been in awe of our preparations for the westward journey. It WAS hot but the buses were air conditioned (sometimes over-achieving in this regard) and roomy, so temperatures were not an issue until we took our rest stops. We were cruising along on the Turnpike, with some groups actually studying, some reading or focused on their electronic devices , some just chatting about this and that. I was watching out the window; I love traveling in those buses because I can pay attention to the scenery and not the road, I can be up above things and get a better view. I always was aware that Ohio scenery flattened heading westward, beginning with the crossing of the Cuyahoga River and heading over across the Lake Plain toward Toledo. Once across that, and into Indiana, things get a little more rolling. I had not been aware that there was so much irrigation of field crops in Indiana; we could see the big pieces of apparatus spraying out water as they moved across the fields. I still have not figured out how they manage to irrigate rectangular/square fields with machinery that seemed to be tethered in one spot—where the water was—and moving about that pivot point…which would seem to demand a circular pattern of water delivery. Didn’t look circular to me. How do they do that? Plenty of wildlife was out for viewing as we rolled along; I spotted a heron, two cranes, several deer, two woodchucks out browsing, and quite a few ducks. The Wild Kingdom! And that doesn’t even count the therapy dog—a real little one—that was on the bus in a ventilated backpack. She made good use of the facilities every time that we stopped anywhere. So, we’re rest-stopping and at one spot in Ohio, I hit the gift shop to purchase an over-priced (Aren’t things there always over-priced?) Ohio State fuzzy-fleece throw to keep frost from forming on my shoulders as I leaned against the window; it served the purpose but Woody Hayes would never have countenanced such frippery. As the miles went by, our stops were only to be in Ohio; the director of operations was of the opinion that Indiana couldn’t hold a candle to

1. STOCKS AND GOP PRESIDENTS - The 1st year of the 4-year term in office for a Republican president has resulted in a down year for the S&P 500 stock index 7 out of 10 times since 1929. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican President from 1953-60, had only 2 down stock years during his 8 years in office, both occurring in the 1st year of each of his 4-year terms. The S&P 500 consists of 500 stocks chosen for market size, liquidity and industry group representation. It is a market value weighted index with each stock’s weight in the index proportionate to its market value (source: BTN Research). 2. TOO RISKY? - Just 54% of 18,336 adults surveyed in April 2017 own stocks (direct ownership or indirectly owned through a pooled investment) in their personal accounts or pre-tax retirement accounts (source: Gallup). 3. IMPACT? - Last week’s Fed rate hike was its 4th in its current rate hike cycle. In the 18 months since its 1st rate hike on 12/16/15 (i.e., 12/16/15 to last Friday 6/16/17), the S&P 500 has gained +21.2% (total return) and the yield on the 10-year Treasury note has fallen from 2.30% to 2.15% (source: BTN Research).
Ohio in the matter of food offerings or comfort, and I think that she had a point. A number of the Indiana locations were undergoing renovation too, so no stops until Chicago. So the traffic is getting serious as we headed through Gary, Indiana and into the Chicago orbit. It was getting to be about rush hour (Mental adjustments needed, Central Time Zone, one hour later than the one we started off in), vehicles of every size and description, hell-bent on getting somewhere FAST. Not us. We’re slowing down, slowing down, slowing down. I’m thinking, “Wow, this is some traffic jam we’ve gotten ourselves into. We’re hardly moving at all. No, we’re not moving at all. Some rush hour, huh?” That’s when I looked out of the window and saw the bus driver walking toward the back of the bus—outside! He came back into the bus, then got out again, this time carrying one of those triangular plastic reflective warning signs which he, presumably placed at the rear of the bus so we would not be rear-ended by a semi. And there we sat…for two hours. Luckily, the air conditioning held up for the whole time and we did not get parboiled in our own juices (Which could have become pretty nasty) while waiting for the front bus to take its load of passengers to our destination, then return to pick up our contingent of Quiz Bowlers. Alas, transferring from one bus to another, we were forced to abandon our stash of snacks; we only partially recovered from this tragedy on the way back. In any case, we did finally get to the Candlewood Suites where we were expected and had only minimal delay getting into our assigned rooms. At one point there was some speculation as to who might have to sleep on a recliner or the floor, but that was settled with little bloodshed. We had missed the official orientation session on Friday evening but were reassured that it would follow the same general format as our qualifying competition, so that was not a big deal. What was a big deal was the heat. Whooeee! Everything that Ohio was getting that weekend, Chicago was getting first. And never doubt that the nickname “Windy City” is appropriate. Our residence hotel was a block or so from the Sheraton where the competition was scheduled, so we had to walk there for each match, then back to rest up or recharge with food—one way with the wind at our backs, one way walking into the wind. I get more wrinkles just thinking about it. No recounting of the trip can be complete without a mention of Amy and John Crawford, our undaunted and indefatigable parent chaperones and tour guides. They had driven on their own to Chicago—and got there before we did—and had been there before and were wickedly good at looking up things on various internet sites and were able to get out to round up provisions—gallons of milk, for instance—to keep teenagers from wasting away from lack of breakfast. John was also tall enough to be spotted above a crowd and homed in on like a landmark, a virtual Eiffel Tower (son Christian displays similar characteristics). Amy steered everybody and got us where we needed to be (More about that later) They were indispensable. Stay tuned for more on “Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin’ town”…what Paul Harvey called, “the rest of the story.”

Best Bicycles for Aging Baby Boomers Dear Savvy Senior, My husband and I are interested in getting a couple of bicycles for leisurely exercise and fun, and would like to get your recommendation. We’re both approaching 60 and are a little overweight, and it’s been a while since we rode. Easy Riders Dear Easy, If you’re interested in leisurely, recreational riding for fitness and fun, a great option is a “comfort bike,” which is very popular among baby boomers. Here’s what you should know about this option, along with some tips to help you shop and choose. Comfort Bikes - A comfort bike is a style of bicycle that’s easy on an aging body because it lets you ride in a more comfortable upright position. These bikes have high handlebars so you don’t have to hunch over, which eases lower-back strain and reduces pressure on the wrists and hands. They also come with wide tires for a smooth ride, offer fewer gears, and have soft, wide seats to eliminate saddle soreness. Most comfort bikes also come with shock-absorbing forks and seat posts for additional comfort. And some offer unique design features like an ultra low step-over bar that makes getting on and off easy for people with limited flexibility (like the Biria Easy Boarding at Biria.com), or the “flat-foot” design offered by many manufacturers where the pedals are moved forward, away from the seat. This allows you to get a full-leg extension when you pedal, but keeps the seat in a lower position so when you’re stopped, you can put your feet down flat on the ground while seated, which is a great safety feature for older riders. Most major manufacturers including Electra, Sun, Raleigh, GT, Giant, and Trek all make a line of comfort bikes that costs between $300 and $800 or more depending on its features. Shopping Tips - To find a quality comfort bike, your best option is to find a good bike shop in your area. Bikes from big box stores, like Walmart and Target, are mass-market bikes that may be less expensive, but the quality isn’t as good and they’re typically seven to eight pounds heaver. They also come in only one size, so you’re not likely to get a great fit. Before you buy any bike, be sure you take it for a test ride first to ensure that the seat and fit of the bike is comfortable, the brakes and shifters are easy to use, the gears can go low enough for climbing hills, and the frame and suspension adequately smooth the bumps. Recumbent Bikes - If the comfort bikes don’t meet your needs, another popular style among older riders is a recumbent bike. These are the low-to-the-ground, stretched-out frame bikes with La-Z-Boy style seats that allow you to recline with your legs positioned in front of you. Recumbent bikes are very comfy, easy on the back, arms and shoulders, and aerodynamic which make them ideal for long rides. The disadvantages, because they are low-to-the-ground, they can be harder to balance and maneuver, and are more difficult for other vehicles to see. If you worry about falling or want more stability when you ride consider a three-wheel recumbent trike. See SunSeeker.bike and TerraTrike.com for a nice variety, but be aware that recumbent bikes are more expensive, typically ranging between $1,000 and $2,500.

4. WE BORROW SHORT-TERM - 48% of the Treasury debt of the USA that matures during fiscal year 2017 (i.e., the 12 months ending 9/30/17) had an initial maturity of less than 3 years. Upon maturity, this debt will need to be paid off or rolled over into new debt (source: Treasury Department). 5. RETIREES ARE MILLIONAIRES? - The maximum retirement benefit paid by Social Security to an individual retiring in 2017 at the full retirement age of 66 is $2,687 per month. $3.224 million invested in a pre-tax account earning 1% annually on a tax-deferred basis would generate $32,244 per year or $2,687 per month of taxable income, i.e., income taxes are due upon withdrawal from the pre-tax account (source: Social Security). 6. LAND OF LINCOLN - Illinois is expected to start its fiscal year 2018 on 7/01/17 without a spending plan, the 3rd consecutive year its legislature has failed to agree on a budget. The state’s general obligation bonds are rated “triple-B minus” by S&P, the lowest “investment grade” rating, just 1 notch above “speculative” or “junk” status. Illinois is projected to suffer a $7 billion deficit in fiscal year 2018 (source: S&P).

Medical Clinic Slated To Open In Windham This Fall Windham - The Renaissance Family Center of Windham, Ohio Inc. in co-operation with Faithful Servants Care Center, Kent State University and UH Portage will be bringing medical care to the area for those residents who find themselves underinsured or uninsured. The clinic is slated to open in October of 2017 and will bring to fruition several years of planning and effort to bring care to the residents of this area. The Free Medical Clinic will offer care to residents in not only Windham, but the surrounding communities of Garrettsville, Nelson Township, Freedom Township, Mantua, Newton Falls and Braceville. The Renaissance Family Center’s mission is “to keep and enhance the quality of life for families of Windham and the neighboring communities through services, stewardship of resources and shared responsibility.” Faithful Servants Care Center currently has three locations in the Akron and Tallmadge area. Co-founders Drs. Sue and Mark Meyer found in practicing medicine that there’s a huge need for medical care for people who can’t afford insurance. They’re working hard every day, but don’t have the money to buy insurance and they basically get left out. Thier centers bring free access to health care to the uninsured — a population which continues to grow in our country. Working with UH Portage and Kent State University’s Nursing program, plans are coming together to make the clinic a reality.

For all of the folks who watched over the Mamma Duck who sat on her eggs at the Garrettsville Rite Aid, in the parking lot landscaping...you can come see the ducklings, all hatched and active, at the Rite Aid parking lot on Friday, June 23 from 11 a.m. to 7p.m. The little quackers will probably have their own pool and certainly will have their current landlord, Kathy De Young, there to answer questions between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. There will be opportunities for parents to take pix with kids.

Are Millennial Women Saving Enough for Retirement? Provided By Chris Perme | Columnist Women 35 and younger are often hard-pressed to save money. Student loans may be outstanding; young children may need to be clothed, fed, and cared for; and rent or home loan payments may need to be made. With all of these very real concerns, are they saving for retirement? The bad news: 44% of millennial women are not saving for retirement at all. This discovery comes from a recent Wells Fargo survey of more than 1,000 men and women aged 22-35. As 54% of the millennial women surveyed were living paycheck to paycheck, this lack of saving is hardly surprising.1 The good news: 56% of millennial women are saving for retirement. Again, this is according to the Wells Fargo survey. (A 2016 Harris Poll determined roughly the same thing – it found that 54% of millennial women were contributing to a retirement savings account.)1,2 The question is, are these young women saving enough? In the Wells Fargo survey, the average perpaycheck retirement account contribution for millennial women was 5.7% of income, which was 22% lower than the average for millennial men. One influence may be
Notes from the vineyard Amanda Conkol | Columnist
Many Americans are already familiar with the health benefits of wine, especially red wine. One to two glasses of wine per day can benefit your heart, your weight and cholesterol levels. But did you know that simply being in the vineyards also improves your physical health? The fresh air, the calmness of the vines swaying in the breeze provide a unique spiritual experience which connects you in a deeper way. The combination of wine and being outdoors has led to a new trend at the wineries… yoga and wine. Yoga is an ancient tradition of healing that can be translated as union -- the joining of opposites. Dr. Marcus Lorenzo Penn, Founder and CEO of Self Care Reform Health & Wellness Consultancy in Oakland, California describes the release and focus that yoga can bring as “A positive flow of energy like you’d just run ten miles”. For Penn, yoga is a complete mind and body connectedness experience, and in many ways, for those who enjoy wine, the experience is also very much about a deeper connection with the aromas and tastes that wine provides. “Connecting with the earth, connecting with nature, seeing where the grapes are grown,” is an essential part of visiting a vineyard and yoga can help you focus mentally on allowing your body to experience that fully. Candlelight Winery has joined the Yoga and Wine craze by offering a weekly session taught by local instructor, Samantha Martin. This one hour session focuses on the tranquil environment, breathing techniques and enjoying time with friends. Samantha welcomes all ages and yoga levels to her sessions, so if you’ve never done yoga before (like me), don’t worry about it – Samantha will guide you through the journey! Each session is held outdoors so it is weather permitting but we invite you to bring a yoga mat or beach towel to lie on. Tickets to each yoga session are $15.99 and include a glass of wine or beer at the end. You can purchase tickets on our website at www.CandlelightWinery.com or call the winery at 330.527.4118. Check our website or Facebook page for the next yoga and wine night at the winery. Cheers and Namaste! Amanda is the Co-Owner of Candlelight Winery located at 11325 Center Road, Garrettsville. For more information on the winery, please visit www. candlelightwinery.com.
the wage gap between the sexes: on average, the survey found that millennial women earn just 74% of what their male peers do.1 In the survey, the median personal income for a millennial woman was $28,800. So, 5.7% of that is $1,641.60, which works out to a retirement account contribution of $136.80 a month. Not much, perhaps – but even if that $136.80 contribution never increased across 40 years with the account yielding just 6% annually, that woman would still be poised to end up with $254,057 at age 65. Her early start (and her potential to earn far greater income and contribute more to her account in future years) bodes well for her financial future, even if she leaves the workforce for a time before her retirement date.1,3 More good news: millennial women may retire in better shape than boomer women. That early start can make a major difference, and on the whole, millennials have begun to save and invest earlier in life compared to previous generations. A recent study commissioned by Naxis Global Asset Management learned that the average millennial starts directing money into a retirement account at age 23. Historically, that contrasts with age 29 for Gen Xers and age 33 for baby boomers. If the average baby boomer had begun saving for retirement at age 23, we might not be talking about a retirement crisis.4 In the aforementioned Harris Poll, the 54% of millennial women putting money into retirement accounts compared well with the 44% of all women doing so. The millennial women were also 14% more likely to voluntarily participate in a workplace retirement plan than male millennials were, and once enrolled in such plans, their savings rates were 7-16% greater than their male peers.2 In 2015, U.S. Trust found that 51% of high-earning millennial women were top or equal income earners in their households. That implies that these young women have a hand in financial decision-making and at least a fair degree of financial literacy – another good sign.4 Clearly, saving $136.80 per month will not fund a comfortable retirement – but that level of saving in their twenties may represent a great start, to be enhanced by greater retirement account inflows later in life and the amazing power of compound interest. So, while young women may not be saving for retirement in large amounts, many are saving at the right time. That may mean that millennial women will approach retirement in better financial shape than women of preceding generations.

This handsome Siamese mix boy was abandoned outdoors by his previous owners. He is about 6 years old and very affectionate once he knows you. He follows his foster parents around the house and sleeps at the bottom of their bed. He is good with dogs and seems fine with most cats. He is neutered, vaccinated, leukemia negative, but did test positive for FIV. If you’re familiar with FIV and are willing to adopt this loving boy, he should have a safe, stress-free, indoor home only. Sammy is a talker and fun and playful. He would probably be happiest as the only cat, receiving all your love and attention. To meet Sammy, please call Rebecca at 440 321 2485 Kathy Deptola Animal Rescue
