Hiram College invites public to take a walk on the wild side at its James H. Barrrow Field Station’s 50th Anniversary Fall Color Trek

The Scarecrows Return To Burton Village Denise Bly | Contributing Reporter

Burton - This year marks the 9th year for the Grand Return of the Scarecrows (GRS) in Burton. Every year, around mid September, the downtown area and surrounding region will have some “peculiar looking fellows” lining the sidewalks and streets. These fellows, or as the Burton Chamber of Commerce (BCC) calls them, “new friends” have wandered in from the local corn fields to celebrate the harvest season, which has become known as the Grand Return of the Scarecrows (GRS). In 2007 the Chamber of Commerce held a Scarecrow Ball with proceeds from the event being split between the BCC, Berkshire High School and Burton Century Village. The event was a huge success, but sadly due to an economic downturn the following year, the ball did not return. However, the friendly fellows from the corn field did, hence the start of the GRS. Originally, each business would make a scarecrow that

adhered to a theme, today the merchants are encouraged to make a scarecrow that depicts something about their business. Once completed, the scarecrows are placed in front of their establishment. Most of the scarecrows are located in the heart of the village, with a few businesses to the east of the village participating as well. The scarecrows in the village are a great way to celebrate fall and for people to see what Burton has to offer. They are now an anticipated event that brings people out from all over to see them and to explore the village. The scarecrows are not scary. They are friendly, fun, fellows made out of various materials that will make you smile. Therefore, bring the kids along and have fun exploring Burton Village, while taking advantage of this great free, family event. Don’t forget the camera - these scarecrows love to have their pictures taken! This is an autumn must-see event.

Hiram – Take a walk on the wild side and celebrate the Hiram College James H. Barrow Field Station’s 50th anniversary at a Fall Color Trek. Festivities take place Saturday, Oct. 14, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the 550-acre field station, 11305 Wheeler Road, Garrettsville. Transportation to and from the field station and available throughout the event begins at 9:45 a.m., with pickup and drop-off in front of Hinsdale Hall, 11753 Garfield Road. “Corny” the snake, a baby snapping turtle, and other animals, plus nature-artifact touch tables and related displays open the event at the field station’s Frohring Research Laboratory. Just outside, a monarch waystation, pollinator penthouse, and phenology garden await curiosity-seekers. While singer, songwriter, and naturalist Sam Sapp serenades with “Songs and Tails from the Woods” (11 a.m.-noon), the field station will buzz with activities that offer behind-the-scenes peeks at its research and study functions. Snake surveying (under wooden boards), bird watching (to spot such species as northern cardinals, gray catbirds, black-capped chickadees, American robins, and perhaps some fall migrants from behind a “blind”), and electrofishing stations will be dotted throughout the woodlands. As event-goers hike along the Ruth E. Kennedy Memorial Nature Trail, they will have an opportunity to watch apple pressing and sample cider, learn about grassland restoration and wetland water-quality testing, see a maintained forest plot alongside one affected by invasive plants, and learn about the Interurban Service railroad line, which ran through the field station in the early 1900s. Sites for attendees to build a fairy house, compose a nature journal, get a lesson in nature photography, toast marshmallows, and even paint a rock round out the event. The Fall Color Trek is free and open to the public. “Many of the buildings and areas were established in the first years of James H. Barrow Field Station’s existence and many of these still exist today,” says field station director Jim Metzinger. “What makes this place similar is that we continue to give the students a true experiential learning experience on a daily basis. We continue to take students out in the field to learn about their natural surroundings.” Metzinger adds that today’s field station, however, offers practical learning opportunities to students in all academic disciplines. “We don’t just cater to the biology and environmental studies students. We attract and engage the management student, the computer science student, the art and music student as well as all members of the surrounding community,” he says.

Leapin’ Lizards!

Aurora - Vibrant, brash and innately cheerful, ANNIE, the effervescent Broadway hit opens ACT’s 58th season on Oct. 27 for a record-setting 13 performance run. The show will be performed at 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 18, Dec. 1 and 2, plus at 3 pm Sundays Nov. 5, 12, and 19 at Aurora Community Theatre, 115 E. Pioneer Trail. Set in the hard-luck days of 1930s New York City, the Tony award-winning musical is based on the popular Harold Gray comic strip “Little Orphan Annie.” Featuring music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and book by Thomas Meehan, ANNIE tells the story of the carrot-haired cutie whose pluck and positivity drive her never-give-up hope that she will find the parents who left her on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage. Annie’s adventure-filled pursuit takes her from the wretched children’s home run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan to tough city streets, where she rescues a lovable mutt named Sandy; to a lavish, uptown mansion, where Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks takes her under his wing, and even to the White House, where the president

Paula Kline Messner, last seen at ACT in GOOD PEOPLE, plays Miss Agatha Hannigan, while Geneviéve Adelman plays Grace Farrell. Michael Guffey takes on the role of Daniel “Rooster” Hannigan, with Laura Swinsburg as Lily St. Regis.

Ravenna – Joseph Diorio, Health Commissioner of the Portage County Combined General Health District announced the 2018 Portage County Safe Communities grant has been awarded to the health district. Safe Communities is designed for comprehensive traffic safety injury prevention at the local level. The goal is to reduce preventable crashes through increased public awareness of seat belt usage, distracted driving, and impaired driving. Safe Communities is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The grant concept is data-driven, and funding is based on a three-year average of fatal crashes. Portage County’s fatal crash average was 13.33 and was eligible to apply for a maximum amount of $42,000. Portage County Safe Communities Coalition provides input to promote awareness and plans activities to accomplish the grant goals. The coalition






is currently comprised of volunteers, state and county agencies, local businesses, safety advocates, and first responders. During the grant year, October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018, the coalition is required to conduct a minimum of twelve events, plus the “Click it or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign kickoffs. Coalition meetings are open to the public and conducted the first Monday of every month. Meetings are held at 705 Oakwood Street, Ravenna and start at 9:30 a.m. The grant also requires the Fatal Crash Data Review Board to meet quarterly to review all fatal crash reports to identify crash trends and recommend countermeasures. The board has representation from: Portage County Prosecutor, Engineer, and Coroner’s Offices, Ohio Department of Transportation, UH Portage Medical Center, Gateway Towing, law enforcement, and public health. For more information regarding activities or meetings, contact Lynette Blasiman, Safe Communities Project Director, Portage County Health District, at 330-296-9919 Ext. 118.

The ladies of the Twentieth Century Club of Garrettsville met on October 5 at the home of member Jane Bell. The roll call response was members’ understanding of the meaning of the October experience and ranged from the beauty of fall colors through National Dessert Month, Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, birthdays & family events. Business conducted included donation to the Friends of Melana and the NGCC Snack Pack program at James A. Garfield Elementary School as well as a discussion of the timetable for rotating past years’ minutes into the keeping of the club historian and, thence, to the James A. Garfield Historical Society. The program which followed was presented by Jane Hill and, in a most interesting and entertaining fashion, launched the year’s theme of “Back to Our Roots” with an illumination of what life was like at the beginning of the twentieth century when the club was first organized. This included vignettes of what was going on in Garrettsville, as recorded in the local newspaper—advertising, personal visits, etc., funeral car, as well as statistics on life expectancies, popular names, popular music, movement from farms to cities( There were only 45 states in 1901), home entertainment. Influential women, such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Sarah Bernhardt brought about changes in women’s suffrage and the wearing of corsets (Thank Heaven!). Styles , the many uses of hat pins and the introduction of deodorant were mentioned; so was the influence of the motor car. The engaging speaker also brought artifacts/”realia”— a period newspaper, period hats, archived club programs beginning with 1919. There were good times and bad times but will be no turning back. The club motto is “Step by Step Onward.” And so it goes.

“Where do stinkbugs lay their eggs?” Now that fall’s here, stinkbugs are starting to appear inside again. A patron called asking about their lifecycle and reproduction, hoping to catch them before they hatched. Brown marmorated stinkbugs only arrived in the U.S. in the late 1990s, but they’re a widespread pest now. We found a lot of information online, such as the Washington Post livechat with University of Maryland entomologist Michael Raupp, and pest control websites like and Stinkbugs like to come inside to stay warm through the winter, but they don’t eat or reproduce until they go back outside in the springtime again. Once the weather gets warm and the days get longer (usually in April or May), you’ll see them appear again as they make their way outside to feed for a few weeks and then mate. A female will be ready to lay eggs as early as five days after mating, according to, and she can lay from 100 to 400 in her lifetime. (We found different figures – it probably depends on the climate of the state where she’s found. A stinkbug in warmer climes will be outside eating and reproducing longer.) The stinkbugs will only lay their eggs on the underside of leaves. The eggs are barrel-shaped and about a millimeter in diameter. The female lays twenty to thirty at a time and they take four to seven days to hatch. It takes a little over a month for the baby bugs (or nymphs) to grow into full adults – they go through five stages (or instars) before they’re fully grown, each lasting about a week. When they first hatch, they don’t look much like the adult bug. First instar stinkbug nymphs are rounder, resembling ticks, and black and orange in color. If you come across these eggs or nymphs underneath a leaf, you can scrape them off and drown them in soapy water. (This also works on the adult bugs and keeps them from releasing their smell.) Scientists in New York and Oregon, where the bugs cause a lot of agricultural damage, are experimenting with biological control in the form of samurai wasps. These tiny parasitic wasps lay their eggs inside stinkbug eggs, killing them before they can hatch. If nothing else, you can take comfort in knowing that stinkbugs only live for about six to eight months, and the bugs bothering you this fall won’t be back next year – but their children might.

Take Advantage Iva Walker | Columnist

Take advantage of the many programs offered— FREE!—at your local branch of the Portage County District Library. There are all kinds of them, something for nearly everybody . Cooks and bakers, craftspersons and sporting types, book discussion aficionados, artist of all sorts, teens, seniors, little ones…keep an eye out for what will be offered at your particular branch and all of them in the county—Aurora, Garrettsville, Streetsboro, Windham, affiliated Reed in Ravenna and Kent Free—for an activity that appeals to you, sign up and go; most are free or low-cost. They’re all interesting in one way or another. For example, recently at the Garrettsville branch Haruhide Osugi (not an Irish guy, right?), Japanese Outreach Co-ordinator from KSU, presented a beginner’s project on Japanese calligraphy which was presented to a packed house of brave souls willing to wield a brush in pursuit of a broadened cultural horizon. He briefly told of the development of Japanese script— Sho-do (from Sho—writing, and Dou—path), from its arrival from China, accompanying Buddhism in the 7th century, through the creation of three separate forms (Hiragana—sound-based, Katakana—for foreign words, and Kanji—ideographic, symbol-for-idea) and instruction in modern Japanese schools. It is used in many art forms as well as everyday writing. He brought with him explanation of the writing tools sufficient for all of the would-be artists. These included the fude—brush, the mizu-sashi—charcoal, suzuri—ink stone, shitajaki—underlay, hanshi— paper and bunchin—weight (to hold the paper down), accompanying demonstrations and explanations of how

Union at HarbisonWalker International on Strike Denise Bly | Contributing Reporter

Windham - A press release received by the Weekly Villager from HarbisonWalker International (HWI) states that “The United Steelworkers International Union 8565-03 has rejected the most recent contract offer and commenced an economic strike at the Windham facility effective at midnight on September 30, 2017.” According to the press release, the collective bargaining agreement expired on September 15, 2017. HWI stated that “It has been and will continue to operate under the terms and conditions of the expired collective bargaining agreement while continuing to bargain in good faith towards a new contract. The company’s objective is to keep workers employed and customers’ needs met.” The press release goes on to explain that they are disappointed that since the contract negotiations began the union has voted down two comprehensive proposals that included wage increases and a highly market-competitive benefits package. The offer is intended to continue to providing secure and attractive jobs for more than 90 folks in the Windham community and surrounding area, while allowing the company to remain competitive in the global market. HWI is committed to reaching a new contract with the union. Although they are committed, to do that they must meet customer’s needs as well. The plant is continuing to operate under a contingency plan in full compliance of the labor laws to fulfill current orders. Union members on the picket lines say they have made

concessions for the last 13 years. First it was 10 years to help HWI when they were in bankruptcy and the three years after coming out of bankruptcy to allow HWI to get stabilized. Strike Captain Wayne Brown said the union offered a proposal last week and it was rejected by the company. According to Brown and Matt McManus, the company wants them to keep making concessions but they claim HWI is continuing to give salary employees bonuses. The workers just want what is fair. They believe the package that was offered, which would freeze pensions, raise the match on their 401K and increase wages, but also increases their cost for insurance while increasing deductibles and out of pocket expenses isn’t fair. McManus said, “The freezing of pension is costing him a lot of money for his retirement.” Employed at HWI for 17 years McManus believes the company should unfreeze the pensions and live up to the promise they gave their prospective employees when they were hired. He said the pension plan was one of the reasons he left a good job and came to HWI. Both gentlemen also stated that the jobs they hold at HWI require skill. An average Joe off the street just can’t come in and start working. They claim it takes time to train them properly so they can develop the skills needed to run the kilns and other machines in the facility. The strikers are afraid if they accept the concessions, they are setting a precedent that could affect future employees and the current younger ones from having decent employment with a competitive benefit package. They claim the company

just keeps taking away more and more and soon they will have just another job, not the great job it had been. Like HWI Management, the union would like to see the strike end quickly, as they all want to get back to work. The strikers just want to continue to have a great job with a benefit package that won’t jeopardize the future of quality employment in the area. Many of HWI employees live in Windham and the surrounding area and are active in the community. The strike not only affects their families, it also affects the local economy. Currently there are not any offers on the table and there are not any new contract talks scheduled. So for now they are at an impasse. * Calls to the HWI to comment further on the press release or to refute the strikers’ claims were unreturned by press time.

Mantua - Last week, the entire first grade at Crestwood Primary School (CPS) had the opportunity to take a field trip to the local explore the Cuyahoga River watershed at Buchert Park in Mantua. Although the day was warm and sunny, the river temperature hovered at roughly 65 degrees when 19 members of the American Experience Academy class donned waders and entered the river. They carried nets to collect specimens to share with the first graders, who waited on the banks with tweezers and magnifying glasses in hand, ready for discovery. Several times a year, in the fall and again in the springtime, CHS Science teacher Andy Brown travels with his students to the nearby park to study water quality, identify various fish and insects, and investigate this unique, nearby resource in order to bring their science course to life. “We did our measurements ‘for real’ last week,� he explained. His students will use their experiences this week with the first graders to reinforce what they’ve learned, and to share the wonder of nature with the younger kids. Last year, Mr. Brown’s class worked with CPS first grade teacher Monica Cavanaugh’s class on a pilot program with the same goal. Mrs. Cavanaugh’s daughter, Morgan, was one of Mr. Browns Academy students that year, which helped prompt the excursion. She noted that Morgan, who graduated last year, is currently studying biology at college, thanks, in part to her experience in the Academy class. “I just love the Academy program, “ Mrs. Cavanaugh gushed. “I’ll do anything to help it grow.� And her first graders benefited from the older students’ time and attention, an experience the other first grade teachers wanted to share with their kids, as well. And so, this year the field trip was expanded to include all five CPS first grade classes, with bussing paid for by Principal Cindy Ducca’s Account. “This free field trip is the best thing they’ll do in science exploration all year,� Mrs. Picone acknowledged. Once they exited the busses at the park, the high schoolers took charge. The first graders were divided into groups, with each group investigating a particular

Garrettsville - Hiram Rotary Report Iva Walker | Columnist

The Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary Club welcomed Kim and Damon Bahr of Utah, formerly with the Historic John Johnson Home and the G-H Rotary, who have returned for the occasion of an unveiling and dedication of a second edition, 1837 copy of The Book of Mormon, a founding document of the LDS church. The book was found during their sojourn in Hiram through the good offices of Candace Learn, who, having attended a presentation about the church, brought the volume to the Bahrs, so that it could be in its rightful home. After the ceremony on Tuesday in Hiram, the book will go on permanent display in Kirtland where there are secure, suitable facilities. Preparations for the upcoming Reverse Raffle, the G-H Rotary’s major fundraising activity for the year, are underway. Sponsors—Mallory-DeHaven Carlson, Davey Tree, Sky Lanes, S&K, Ellerhorst-Russell, Middlefield Bank, Kim Kohli, IGA, McCumbers-Brady Realty— so far, are signing up; more are welcome. Tickets are available now. See any Rotarian. Bring your friends. Tom Collins will be in charge of the Rotary booth at the Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase on Thursday. Information and invitations to prospective new members will be distributed. Jim Irwin announced that the semi-annual roadside clean-up will be held on St. Rte. 82 between Garrettsville and Hiram during the morning of October 21. InterAct members and, possibly, Boy Scouts will be in the labor force. At the end of the clean-up, the group will retire to McDonald’s for a well-deserved lunch, courtesy of Mike Payne. Delores McCumbers will be travelling to El Salvador for a Soil & Water Conference, observing Rotary wells and water projects and focusing on sustainable/ solar operations which can continue with local support. Kathleen Kisabeth, principal of James A. Garfield High School, reported that the system is up and running, with a well-attended Homecoming, Senior Nights for football, soccer, golf and volleyball coming up, adjustments settling in for the new approach to grading, and Volley for the Cure on Wednesday.

portion of the river. The younger students used magnifying glasses and tweezers to extract interesting items from nets cast by the high schoolers. The older kids also grabbed submerged rocks, bringing them to shore for first-grade scientists to investigate, as well. Notable critters they discovered were stored in plastic ice cube trays filled with river water to be studied in greater detail under microscopes set up in the park’s covered shelter. Eventually, they were released back to the river. “We come here every several times each year,� shared Mr. Brown. Initially, the class worked with the ODNR to learn the proper techniques and basic creature identification. “Now, we can do it on our own,� explained Mr. Brown. “And spending the time to teach the younger kids helps reinforce what my students have learned.� First grade teacher Sarah Picone shared, “Last week, when we talked about this field trip, many kids cringed and told me they didn’t like bugs.� As we spoke, several of those same students clamored to show her the cool bugs they found. “I think they all like bugs now, “ Mrs. Picone beamed. “This is such a cool hands-on experience!� Some notable critters found that morning included a crayfish, suckerfish, water bug, and cadis fly larvae. “They’re learning more about bugs today than I could have taught in my classroom,� Mrs. Picone added. But the program spurred students’ natural curiosity, as they studied flying insects with magnifying glasses and picked up fallen aspen leaves for a closer look under the microscope.

No School Means Corn Maze on Friday!

Stacy Turner | Contributing Reporter Mantua - If you’re looking for a fun way to spend this Friday’s NEOEA Day with your kids, why not celebrate the season by spending the afternoon at the Derthick’s Corn Maze? Corn maze admission includes the 60s-themed maze, which features likenesses of the Beatles, a VW bus, and other groovy 60s-era icons, gives you and your family acres of fun. April shared, “This was our first time visiting the farm and corn maze, and we had a blast! My son is 4 and there were endless things for him to do. He loved the Corn Cannon.” Enter the large maze and follow clues on the treasure hunt, or enjoy the smaller maze with younger kids and solve Farmer Joe’s clue game. Karen added, “It’s a great place for family fun and lots of things for little ones -- plus the maze is just so much fun.” You’ll find farm animals, including pigs, goats, and horses, as well as loads of fun in the round bale play area. Katie shared, “This is the best fall farm I’ve been to! I’ve gone 3 years in a row and tell everyone about it. So many activities for the kids and fun for adults too! I will forever bring my family and friends here.” Amanda remarked, “We had so much fun today. All the staff was so nice. The older man giving pony rides was awesome. The kids also enjoyed the corn boxes, hay bales and sand mound. My 10-year-old loved the zip line too. The one thing my 3-year-old wanted to go on was the cow ride but we didn’t have enough time,” she added. “All in all, we made some great memories today!” Nora remarked, “The folks who run it continue to add new things to do and have worked hard to make it a place where people of all ages can have a safe, fun, yet educational, family time.” Since school is out this Friday for NEOEA Day, why not sneak in some education? That day, Derthick’s will open at 1 pm, with the last ticket sold at 9:30 pm. Natalie agreed, adding, “Amazing -- we will definitely be returning next year! So much to do, great prices and just a nice place to make family memories.”

Jamie Lyn shared, “First time I had been there with my family, and the maze was amazing. Food, games, and was good old fashion family entertainment. I loved it and I will definitely be back next year!” For an additional charge, visit the pumpkin patch to select your own Great Pumpkin, or take a trip on the hillbilly zip line. Derthick’s corm maze is open now and every weekend in October. An adult must accompany children under the age of 14. Visit or check them out on Facebook to learn more.

Alex Dellas Named Terrier Women’s Basketball Coach

Hiram – The last time she stepped on William H. Hollinger court, it was as a member of the Hiram College women’s basketball team. Now, Alex Dellas ‘10 returns to lead the program as the Terrier’s new head coach. “I am very honored to return to the place that I love,” remarked Dellas of the opportunity. “I knew for my first head coach job, that I wanted to go to a place with a rich tradition and positive culture. “When I heard about the job being open, I was eager for the opportunity to come back to Hiram. The school has a culture that I strive to be involved with. Hiram is a place that I’ve called home in the past, and it’s great to be home once again.” After graduating from Hiram in 2010, Dellas earned her Master’s Degree from Kent State University and has spent the last five seasons in the coaching ranks. Most recently, Dellas served for two seasons as the assistant coach at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Dellas helped the Spartans to 13 victories in 201617 and oversaw the development of five All-University Athletic Association honorees. In addition she coached First-Team All-Conference and Third-Team All-Region forward Kara Hageman. Prior to her time with the Spartans, Dellas made her first coaching stop at Williams College, helping the Ephs to 67 wins in three seasons. During her time on the Williams’ staff, Dellas helped coach the team to three NCAA tournament appearances, including a berth in the Final Four, where the team posted a third-place finish, nationally. Getting the most out of her players, Dellas mentored two All-Americans while at Williams, while also coaching the NESCAC Player of the Year.


“One thing that Hiram fans should know about my program is that I am going to constantly bring energy,” remarked Dellas. “I want to create an environment where our athletes feel safe, but also know that they are going to be pushed mentally and physically. I am excited to help push them to grow and to give them the tools needed to reach their goals.” A second-generation Terrier, Dellas, whose father also attended Hiram, appeared in 101 career games. A four-year letterwinner, she appeared in at least 24 games in every season, totaling over 500 points throughout her career. “When I was an undergrad, I loved the community atmosphere at Hiram,” stated Dellas. “As a studentathlete, it was great to have my professors and fellow students in the stands cheering me on. There is a sense of pride and community here that makes me really excited to come back.” Dellas will look to continue the upward trajectory of the Terrier women’s basketball program that saw the team reach new highs in both total wins (17) and NCAC victories (nine) last season. Hiram returns a trio of starters to the floor from that team, including All-NCAC selection Kaylee Shockley, as well as seniors Kayla Yost and Allison Vannoy. “I believe that this program’s success is going to be determined by recruiting efforts and team chemistry,” stated Dellas. “We will build our team chemistry through both on, and off the court efforts, and build our current roster into well-rounded players. “Having talked with the team, I know there is a lot of energy and excitement for the upcoming season. This is an incredible opportunity and I am looking forward to challenging our players to reach the highest standards that our program can set.”

Haunts At Home Iva Walker | Columnist

With Halloween coming up and all, I think that I’ll have to admit that I think that the house seems to be haunted. Not just by the bats who make periodic appearances (Though not—can I hear some knocking on wood out there—just lately) thupp-thupping around inside the place, from living room to dining room to kitchen and back again. They swoop, the bats do and that’s scary enough, but what’s even worse is when they STOP swooping and disappear somewhere into the drapes or under the couch—that was a weird one--and will only come out when the lights are off again. No, it’s not necessarily the bats. I think that we have electronic “haints”. The computer is at the head of the class in this particular respect, of course. It decides for itself what it wishes to work with me on and what it feels that I have no business attempting to do—for my own good, of course. It will change the size of print that appears on the screen without my ever having made any such choice. It will print out pages with print so small that I can barely read it and, to add insult to injury, cut off the right-hand side and put something else there with nothing to do with the original page. Where does this stuff come from ? Why does it happen? I have no clue…nor am I likely to have one this side of the Pearly Gates. Then there’s the light in the bathroom. One of the bulbs burned out over the sink. So I replaced it with what was supposed to be the proper wattage and all. Fine. Flick on the switch and there is light…for a while. Then it dims, then it brightens, then this goes on and on. Never actually goes out, but is never long-term steady either. I took the bulb out and returned it to see if it was screwed in properly. No anomalies there, but it’s still doing the old switcheroo every so often. What’s up with that? Similarly, a bulb in one of the lamps on the buffet in the dining room, which should be of the same wattage as the one on the other side, is consistently noticeably dimmer for no good reason that I can discern. Looks sort of peculiar with one side bright and one not so much but I’m too cheap to replace it until one of them burns out (Is that what you call it when it’s one of those forever LED bulbs?) Then there’s the microwave. This is a new, overthe-range microwave (The other one died and had to be replaced by the crack team from Porter Construction). It has the usual buttons for operation—on, off, thaw, cook, clock, reheat, the usual—and I can manage to do what I need to do with them. However, there is also a light switch so that the cook top can be illuminated (This is not always a desirable view, if I have recently gotten a little messy) and one can tell if the eggs are “over easy” or –unintentionally—scrambled. O.K., so unless I am actually cooking, I leave that light off. Leaving it on encourages at least one cat to hop up to see that everything is as it should be and no cans of tuna are invitingly sitting open there. You can’t be too careful about these things; unattended tuna cans might attract bats, dontcha know. So I turn it off. I get up in the morning to do my daily walk; it’s dark when I leave the house. When I return, the light is on. Have I somehow, inadvertently, set a timer to do this? It would have to be REALLY inadvertent, since I don’t even know how to set the timer in the first place. Occasionally it will come on at about the same time in the p.m. but I didn’t set that either. Maybe the cats are cooking up something while I’m out. True to form, they’re not sharing. And there’s a radio in the front room that should be tuned to the same station as all of the other radios in the house but all it usually produces is a bumper crop of





static. Moving the speakers or the radio itself avails us not, as the static just increases in volume and the station it’s tuned in to can just barely survive any alteration at all. Maybe the cats have some other NPR station they’d rather listen to. Beats me. So, I’m thinking that when the little tikes come to the door and pipe up, “Trick or Treat!”, maybe I should just say. “Trick!” and invite them in. Probably wouldn’t get many takers. It is cute when the littlest ones are coached from the sidelines by parents…”What do you say?”, encouraging the little ones to say “Trick or Treat.” At least one little guy cut to the chase, got right to the point and instead of the desired request, just screwed up his face and muttered, “CANDY.” I do think that it’s not quite kosher when the beggars on the porch are rather over-sized and haven’t bothered to even attempt a costume. That calls for the “C list” candy which is mostly single Smarties or root beer barrels. The general run of kids get a mixed bag selection of whatever was in the best sale. The neighbors and ones that I know or have the most imaginative costumes get the “A list” good stuff. Leftovers go into my Quiz Bowl stash to nosh on at competitions, although sometimes that disappears a little early—nothing ghostly about that. Boo!

National Teen Driving Safety Week is October 21-27 Southington – Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in teens, more than other types of injury, disease or violence. As National Teen Driving Safety Week is October 21-27, it’s the perfect time for teens and their parents to discuss the dangers new drivers face so they can make safe and responsible decisions. Surveys show that teens whose parents set firm rules for driving typically engage in less risky driving behaviors and are involved in fewer crashes. Young drivers who are 15 to 19-years-old were involved in 15 percent of all traffic crashes in Ohio from 2014 to 2016. An action on the part of the teen driver contributed to more than 72 percent of these crashes. These crashes resulted in 286 fatalities and 41,511 injuries. While crash causes may vary, following too closely/ assured clear distance contributed to a majority of the crashes caused by teens. Another 21 percent of crashes were brought about by failure to yield, running a red light or running a stop sign. “Poor decisions while driving can stay with teen drivers for the rest of their lives,” said Lt. Brian Holt, Warren Post Commander. “That is why responsibility, awareness and safety are so important for our youngest drivers.” Teen drivers are encouraged to plan ahead when traveling to eliminate rushing from one location to another. Also, safety belts save lives and teen drivers should encourage everyone in their vehicle to buckle up, every time. For a statistical map regarding teen drivers and a county-by-county breakdown of where Patrol citations have been issued to at fault teens, please visit http:// pdf

How to Search for Forgotten 401(k) Money Dear Savvy Senior, How do I find an old 401(k) that I think I contributed money to at a former employer? Approaching Retirement Dear Approaching, If you think you may have lost track of a 401(k) retirement account, you aren’t alone. As Americans jump from job to job, many leave scraps of their company sponsored 401(k) plans behind, believing they’ll deal with it later, but never do. To help you look for an old 401(k), here are some suggestions along with some free resources that can help you search. Contact Employer The first way to find a previous 401(k) account is to contact your old employer’s human resources department. Ask them to check their plan records to see if you ever participated in their 401(k) plan, and if so, how much it’s worth. You’ll need to provide them your Social Security number and the dates you worked for them. They should be able to either get you the forms necessary to roll over your retirement money to a different 401(k) or to an IRA, or to give you contact information for any outside financial institution overseeing the plan on your employer’s behalf. By following the appropriate instructions you get, you’ll be able to move your retirement money where you want. If you don’t have contact information for your old employer, check your old records to see if you kept an old 401(k) statement. Statements will typically have the information you need to get in contact with either your employer or a plan administrator. If you need help tracking down your former employer because it may have moved, changed owners or merged with another firm, free help is available from sources

like the Labor Department (, 866-4443272) and the Pension Rights Center and Pension Action Center ( These services can tap into public databases that list incorporations and bankruptcies and may be able to help you dig up a plan’s most recently filed Form 5500, the annual report that must be filed with the IRS, PBGC and the Labor Department. This form contains the plan’s contact information and the employer’s identification number, which can be used to locate any plan that inherited the assets in a merger, acquisition or sale. You can also find recently filed 5500s yourself at websites like Search Tools Finding a lost 401(k) account can be trickier if it’s worth less than $5,000, because your former employer can transfer the money to a default individual retirement account without consent. Your cash may go into an interest-bearing, federally insured bank account or to your state’s unclaimed property fund. To search for a lost plan, use the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits at This website matches former employers with past employees who have unclaimed retirement funds. This is a secure and free service, but you’ll need to provide your Social Security number to search. It can also be challenging to track down a lost 401(k) account if your former employer goes bankrupt and abandons the plan. In this case, use the U.S. Department of Labor’s Abandoned Plan Database at AskEBSA.dol. gov/abandonedplansearch. Starting in 2018, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation ( will start accepting transfers of missing participants’ accounts from terminating 401(k) plans. When the participants are found, it will pay them that money plus interest. The agency also plans to launch a registry of terminated 401(k) plans that sent money elsewhere, so missing participants can more easily find their accounts.

under the ACA, and you may have to pay a penalty. If you just have Medicare Part A coverage (hospital insurance), you are considered covered under the ACA.3 Should you get Medigap coverage if you have Part A & B? This third-party health insurance may save you money over time by picking up co-payments and deductibles not covered by Part A & B, but a Medicare Advantage plan provides more comprehensive coverage than Medigap does. Today’s Medigap policies don’t include prescription drug coverage, and they won’t pay for extended long-term care, dental or vision care, or hearing aids or glasses. If you want or need Medigap coverage, you can evaluate policies using Medicare’s Personal Plan Finder at What should you look for in a Part C plan? Scrutinize the out-of-pocket spending limit, the copays, and the co-insurance. Attractively low premiums might not tell you the whole story about the value of a Part C plan. Also, how inclusive is the plan network? Does it include hospitals you would choose and the physicians that now treat you? The Medicare Plan Finder can help you determine an appropriate Part D plan. After you enter your medications, it will go to work. Each Part D plan has its own formulary (list of approved drugs), categorized into higher and lower “tiers” by cost. Formularies do change; if a drug you take drops off of one, that Part D plan has to give you 60 days of notice (or alternately, written notice of the change when you get a refill with a 60-day supply of the medication).5 It is vital to check up on your Part D plan each fall, as your plan could change the way it pays for your specific drugs in the next year – for example, the drug you need could wind up in a more expensive tier. The co-insurance and co-payments could even be altered. Most plans send out notices of formulary changes with plenty of lead time, but sometimes they go unread. Medicare is slowly reducing the Part D “donut hole.” In 2017, Medicare recipients with Part D coverage are paying 40% of the cost of covered brand-name drugs and 51% of the cost of generics once they fall into the Part D coverage gap. Next year, that shrinks to 35% of the cost of brand-name medicines and 44% of the cost of generics. A gradual reduction will occur until 2020, when enrollees with Part D plans will pay no more than 25% of the cost of covered generic and brand-name drugs.6 Medicare plans mail Annual Notice of Change (ANOC) letters to their members. Use this notice to determine if your current plan is still right for you and your medical care needs. If you don’t receive such a letter in September, contact your plan.7 Chris Perme may be reached at 330-527-9301 or www.permefinancialgroup. com.

Medicare Enrollment Options for 2017-18 Key Medicare enrollment periods are approaching. This fall and winter, there are three periods in which Medicare beneficiaries can either enroll or disenroll in forms of coverage. >> Oct. 15-Dec. 7, 2017: Open enrollment period. This is when you can exit Original Medicare (Part A & B) for a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) and change your prescription drug coverage (Part D). You can also get out of a Part C plan and go back to Part A & B during this period; although, you will certainly want a Medicare Supplement (Medigap policy) in place before you make such a move. (In most cases, that means having to pass underwriting.)1 >> Dec. 8, 2017: Annual enrollment period begins for 5-star plans. All Part C and Part D plans are assigned ratings. Beginning December 8, 2017 and ending November 30, 2018, a window opens for you to enroll in a 5-star Part C or Part D plan. You can do this once per 365 days. How do you find the 5-star plans? Visit the Medicare Plan Finder: >> Jan. 1-Feb. 14, 2018: Medicare Advantage plan disenrollment period. If you join a Part C plan in late 2017 and decide you want to leave it, you can do so within this window of time and go back to Original Medicare (Part A & B) with a stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan (Part D). Again, having a Medigap policy before making such a switch is only prudent.1 Do you have to confirm Medicare enrollment at the Health Insurance Marketplace? No. If you have Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan through an HMO or PPO, you are covered under the Affordable Care Act. If you need to make changes to your Medicare coverage, you don’t need to go to the HIM to do so. (For the record, you can’t buy any Medicare plan through the HIM.)3 The ACA has enhanced Medicare benefits. It gives Medicare recipients in the “donut hole” avenues to brandname prescription drug discounts, and recipients may now take advantage of free preventive benefits, cancer screenings, and a yearly wellness visit.3 If you only have Medicare Part B coverage (medical insurance), then you lack minimum essential coverage

The renowned folk ensemble Harmonia will present a free concert at Hiram College on Sunday, October 22 at 3:00 p.m. Location is Frohring Recital Hall, 11746 Dean Street, Hiram. Harmonia plays the traditional music of Eastern Europe, ranging from the Danube to the Carpathians. Its repertoire reflects the cultures of the region: Hungarian, Slovak, Ukrainian, Romanian, Croatian, and Gypsy. The ensemble’s performances on authentic folk instruments evoke the full range of human emotions, interspersing fiery, passionate virtuosity with soulful melancholy and nostalgic yearning. The ensemble uses instruments as varied as accordion, upright bass, violin, panflute, and cimbalom (the East-European 125 string hammered dulcimer). The musicans come from varied backgrounds, finding a common musical language in Harmonia. SingOut! Magazine called their performance “Brilliant. Lush. Dazzling.” National Public Radio declared the group “a musical gem.” The group is based in Cleveland but appears widely throughout the U.S. and beyond. The concert is co-sponsored by the Hiram College Music Department and the Hiram Community Trust. Further information: or 330569-5294.


THE VILLAGER | FRIDAY, October 13, 2017

While the weather has been unseasonably awesome around northeast Ohio, we know all good things must come to an end. The days of golfing, unfortunately, are coming to an end in our neck of the woods and we have started watching some of the pro-golf tournaments taking place in California. I can’t help but think about how cool it would be to golf alongside acres and acres of vines and finish the day at a local winery. With the help from www.fermentationwineblog. com, I think I need to plan a vacation to check out the amazing wine country golf courses. Mayacama Golf Club – sitting in the Mayacama Mountains to the east of Santa Rosa, California, Mayacama is a Jack Nicklaus design that winds its way through hills and small valleys and is a visually stunning challenge. With two wineries located across the street, Petrichor Winery and Peaceland Vineyards, there is plenty of wine to drink after the game. Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa, California sounds like my kind of golf course! Eighteen holes laid out through the middle of vineyards and with a unique six par 3s—six par 4s—six par 5s layout. Located next to Chardonnay Golf Club is Eagle Vines Golf Club which sports the best island green in the region. Fun to play with a lot of blind tee shots. After a great day golfing at either course, you can visit Jamieson Ranch Vineyards located next to the courses. Looking for a little more rustic nine-hole course? Aetna Springs Golf Course in Pope Valley was redesigned by Tom Doaks and is beautifully integrated into the surroundings. There is rarely any sound beyond birds and metal on ball. A quick drive to Pope Valley Winery after a day on the course will have you enjoying the surroundings to the fullest. Traveling to the bay? I heard the Links at Bodega Harbor in Bodega Bay, California has an amazing unique seaside layout. The course can be foggy, can be windy and can be hot but the views of the Pacific are worth it! Unfortunately, there are no wineries nearby but the local restaurants offer plenty of local wines for you to enjoy. So while we wind down a great golf season here, I have some incentive to clean up my game and head west for a golf trip!

1. NOT THE LONGEST BULL YET - The bull market for the S&P 500 will reach 103 months in length as of the close of trading today (10/09/17). That’s the 2nd longest bull market for the stock index since 1950, trailing only the 113 ½ monthlong bull that ended in March 2000. 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. HIGH AFTER HIGH - During its 103 month-long bull market, the S&P 500 has set 169 all-time record closing highs including its most recent on Thursday 10/05/17, its 6th in the last 7 trading days (source: BTN Research). 3. ROLLIN’ ON - The S&P 500 gained +4.5% (total return) during the 3Q 2017, its 8th consecutive “up” quarter. It also marked the 18th of the last 19 quarters that have produced a total return gain (source: BTN Research). 4. A DECADE AGO - It was 10 years ago today (Tuesday 10/09/07) that the S&P 500 peaked at a then all-time record closing high of 1565. The very next day, the index began a painful 17 month tumble that resulted in a 57% drop of the raw index, its worst bear market loss in the last 80 years. In the last 80 years (i.e., back to 1937), the S&P 500 has suffered through 4 bears, each with losses of at least 40% (source: BTN Research). 5. SAGE ADVICE - It was 9 years ago (10/16/08) that Warren Buffet wrote his “Buy America, I Am” op-ed article in the New York Times. Buffett encouraged investors to “be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.” Buffett’s letter was released less than 5 months before the stock market bottomed on 3/09/09, ending a 57% decline of the S&P 500 (source: New York Times). 6. THE WORLD’S BIGGEST - The US economy is $19.25 trillion in size as of 6/30/17. 10 years ago (2007), the economy was worth $14.48 trillion. 20 years ago (1997), it was worth $8.61 trillion. 30 years ago (1987), it was worth $4.87 trillion (source: Commerce Department).
