Mantua Village News

Burton’s Fall Events, a Smashing Success Denise Bly | Contributing Reporter

Burton - This past weekend was so beautiful. If you were not outside, you missed a good one. On Saturday I discovered that Burton was the place to be -- Century Village Museum celebrated their 64th Apple Butter Festival and Burton Chamber of Commerce held their Annual Ox-Tober Fest Arts and Craft Event. Century Village Museum, just south of the circle had most of their buildings opened for tours and had several kettles of apple butter cooking. There were craft vendors, food trucks -- plenty of food -- the train was running, the fires under the open kettles of apple butter were hot, hot, hot! The process of making apple butter is not an easy one. Five bushels of apples are peeled, cored and sliced. Then 10 gallons of cider is reduced to a gallon of concentrated cider. Then an additional three gallons of regular cider and a little cinnamon and -- Voila -- apple butter. Well, not yet anyway, the apples and cider are poured into a copper kettle and cooked for 4-5 hours while being constantly stirred. When it is cooked down and the apple butter doesn’t flow easily from a ladle, it is then removed from the heat. They add more cinnamon and can it up. Now it’s apple butter. One kettle produces 120 jars of deliciousness. All this is done in open, wood-fired, copper kettles. Volunteers manned the kettles, taking turns stirring to help break up apples and to keep the “butter” from sticking and burning. They also taught their guests all about the process they use. After learning about the process, one just had to have a slice of Amish bread with apple butter on it. Yum! Apple butter was available for purchase as well. Visitors could wander the grounds, take a turn at stirring the apple butter kettles, watch some of the artisans at the museum and tour their historical buildings. Their blacksmith was busy making all kinds of décor items, many of them using horseshoes. A volunteer showed children how to plane wood and also showed some branding techniques by marking a piece of wood. There were yard games from the early years, pony rides, food and crafts galore. One of the most intriguing things was a pile of straw, and the children knew exactly what to do with that! If that wasn’t enough to keep busy, just across the street to the center of the circle by the log cabin was Burton Chamber’s Ox-Tober Fest Arts and Craft Event. The Ox-Tober Fest is a combination of an ox roast and an Oktoberfest. Ox roast sandwiches with polka music, beer and brats. What more can one ask for, right? How about more vendors? The east side of the circle was lined with arts and craft vendors hawking their wares. Folks strolled along the sidewalk checking out the goods, or were sitting around listening to a variety of German-style music, and eating some awesome roast

beef, or maybe a brat or two, then washing it down with a pint of brew. It was a gorgeous day to be outside and many visitors were just lingering, catching up with folks they had run into or just enjoying one of the last few nice days of the year. Both events were held Saturday and Sunday and were incredibly successful, partly due to the unseasonably warm weather and the popularity of the long-running Apple Butter Festival.

Mantua - At the last village council meeting, Renee Henry presented council with an award from the Ohio History Connection. The village received the award in recognition of Mantua being a certified local government, and a partner in the Federal Preservation Program, and in honor of the 50th anniversary of the National Preservation Act. The organization, formerly known as the Ohio Historical Society, is a statewide history organization that carries out history services for Ohio and its citizens focused on preserving and sharing the state’s history. Participation in this organization gives the village an opportunity to solicit grants to support a wide range of historical preservation activities. In Mayor Clark’s absence, Councilman Giles Seith accepted the award on behalf of the village. In other news, council approved two ordinances (201724 & 25) amending both water and sewer rates to approve a rate increase effective in the October 1st billing cycle. The rate increase will be used to pay the expenses of conducting and managing the water works and the sanitary sewer system, neither of which have had a significant increase in some time. Due to increased maintenance costs, both the water and sewer billing has been operating at a deficit. After some discussion, Village Solicitor Michele Stuck advised council that they may choose to adjust or repeal this legislation at any time, or if another entity, (ie: The county) chooses to purchase the system. Resident David Sluka was present at the meeting. He voiced his concerns over the dramatic increase, and asked that residents be made aware of how the additional funds that will be collected as a result of this new ordinance will be spent. In similar news, Fiscal Officer Jenny August reported receiving an invoice for $9,000 for repairs to the status system alarm at the water plant, and noted that an additional $15,000 - $20,000 would be required for well drilling in the near future. In other news, council scheduled a grants workshop with Village Engineer CT Consulting for Wednesday, October 11th. The next regularly scheduled council meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 21st at 7 pm; residents are encouraged to attend.

Rare 1837 Book of Mormon Donated at John Johnson Farm Estelle R. Brown | Contributing Reporter

Hiram Twp. - One pocket-sized old book is a treasury of historical and spiritual journeys over the course of 180 years. Thanks to an intersection of opportunity, availability, generosity and serendipity, a rare copy of the second edition of The Book of Mormon published in 1837 was donated by Claridon Township resident Candace L e a r n . Fol low i ng months of research and authentication, it was officially presented to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) during a ceremony at the Mormon meetinghouse adjacent to the Historic John Johnson Home on Pioneer Trail in Hiram Township. There are many strands to this story, but LDS Brother Damon Bahr and his wife Kim hold many of them together. The Bahrs, who are math educators and LDS faithful from Salt Lake City, took a six-month sabbatical from their regular lives in order to serve on the mission field as John Johnson Home directors. In that capacity, they provided tours of the historic home to Mormon pilgrims and to local history buffs. They also became involved in the Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary, the James A. Garfield Historical Society and library book club “to build positive relations between the LDS Church and the surrounding communities.” The Bahrs even presented an educational program at the library for the public to learn more about the role the John Johnson Home played in the life of the Mormon prophet Jospeh Smith and the development of his new religion, when he stayed there from 1831 to1832. One person attending their presentation was Candace (Carver) Learn, a sixth-generation descendant of Isaac Dudley, whose name was inscribed on a card in a little old book she had found among her deceased mother’s possessions four years before. Candace hadn’t known what to do with the chunky book. She couldn’t read it; the print was too small. She nearly threw it away, but wound up keeping it on her bookshelf for the time being. It wasn’t until Candace heard the Bahrs’ presentation that she realized what she she should do. She drove to the John Johnson Home just days later, in June 2016, and gave her old Book of Mormon to the Bahrs. The missionary couple recognized this was an original February 1837 edition of The Book of Mormon, printed in Kirtland, Ohio — “of significant value to rare book collectors.” As Damon Bahr recalled, Candace “responded she was not concerned about the monetary value of her gift because she felt strongly the book should be given to the missionaries.

Open Thursday 6-8

ElderDamon Bahr, Sister Kim Bahr and Bishop Mark Staker with the 1837 Book of Mormon.

Her only suggestion was that the book might be displayed in the Johnson Home, keeping it in the Hiram area as a reflection of its rich history.” Research by LDS historians, including Bishop Mark Staker and Paula Shepherd, determined that Candace’s great-great-great-grandfather Isaac had been baptized in the Kirtland LDS church in 1835. (Smith had been tarred, feathered and run out of Hiram Township in 1832. From here he moved on to Kirtland, where he established a temple and stayed until 1838, when his life was again threatened.) Isaac then followed Smith out to Missouri, but that was short-lived. Isaac and the 1,000 Mormon adherents at the growing Latter Day church were purged from the state later in 1838 by the governor’s Extermination Order. The church moved on to Nauvoo, Illinois, but Isaac Dudley returned to his farm and family in Ohio. His small Book of Mormon — bound within narrow leather covers in order to fit into a missionary’s coat pocket — stayed well-preserved as it was passed down through the family, generation by generation. Today, The Book of Mormon has been translated into 110 languages. Despite its troubled beginnings, the Mormon church currently has nearly 16 million adherents worldwide and 6 million in the U.S. alone. The Mormon Church is ranked by the National Council of Churches as the fourth largest Christian denomination in the United States. Isaac Dudley’s rare 1837 edition of The Book of Mormon will be permanently displayed in the Johnson Inn secure artifacts exhibit at the Historic Kirtland Visitors Center, where thousands of people will have the opportunity to view it. In her gratitude for Candace’s donation, Paula Shepherd said, “Your gift is greatly appreciated. The word managed to get preserved in this book and through your gift, it will continue to bear witness.”

Flu Shots for Seniors Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about the flu shots made for seniors? I got sick last winter after getting a standard flu shot, and am wandering if the flu vaccine for older adults would provide me better protection this year. Almost 70 Dear Almost, There are actually two different flu shots – the Fluzone High Dose and FLUAD – that are designed specifically for people age 65 and older (you only need to get one of them). These FDA approved vaccines are designed to offer extra protection beyond what a standard flu shot provides, which is important for older adults who have weaker immune defenses and have a great risk of developing dangerous flu complications. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the flu puts more than 200,000 people in the hospital each year and kills, on average, about 24,000 – 80 percent of whom are seniors. You also need to be aware that these senior-specific flu shots cannot guarantee that you won’t get the flu this season, but they will lower your risk. And if you do happen to get sick, you probably won’t get as sick as you would without it. Here’s more information on the

two vaccines: Fluzone High-Dose: Approved for U.S. use in 2009, the Fluzone High-Dose (see Fluzone.com) is a highpotency vaccine that contains four times the amount of antigen as a regular flu shot does, which creates a stronger immune response for better protection. This vaccine, according to a 2013 clinical trial, was 24 percent more effective than the regular-dose shot at preventing flu in seniors. FLUAD: Available in the U.S. since last year, the FLUAD vaccine (FLUAD.com) contains an added ingredient called adjuvant MF59 that also helps create a stronger immune response. In a 2012 Canadian observational study, FLUAD was 63 percent more effective than a regular flu shot. The CDC, however, does not recommend one vaccination over the other, and to date, there have been no studies comparing the two vaccines. You should also know that both the Fluzone HighDose and FLUAD can cause more of the mild side effects that can occur with a standard-dose flu shot, like pain or tenderness where you got the shot, muscle aches, headache or fatigue. And neither vaccine is recommended for seniors who are allergic to chicken eggs, or those who have had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine in the past. Both vaccines are also covered 100 percent by Medicare Part B, as long as your doctor, health clinic or

pharmacy agrees not to charge you more than Medicare pays. Pneumonia Vaccines Two other important vaccinations the CDC recommends to seniors, especially this time of year, are the pneumococcal vaccines for pneumonia. Around 1 million Americans are hospitalized with pneumonia each year, and about 50,000 people die from it. The CDC is now recommending that all seniors, 65 or older, get two vaccinations –Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23. Both vaccines, which are administered just once at different times, work in different ways to provide maximum protection. If you haven’t yet received any pneumococcal vaccine you should get the Prevnar 13 first, followed by Pneumovax 23 six to 12 months later. But if you’ve already been vaccinated with Pneumovax 23, wait at least one year before getting the Prevnar 13. Medicare Part B covers both shots, if they are taken at least one year apart. To locate a vaccination site that offers any of these shots, visit Vaccines.gov and type in your ZIP code. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of The Savvy Senior book.

Windham Township Trustee News D B |C R enise ly

ontributing eporter

Windham Twp - Windham Township Trustees met for their October meeting on October 5, 2017 with all board members present. The board members are, Chairman of the Board Brian Miller, trustees, Danny Burns and Rich Gano and the fiscal officer is Jayme Neikirk. The meeting was called to order by the chairman. The pledge of Allegiance was said, along with a moment of silence for our country’s problems and for a quick resolution to the strike at HWI. The minutes and expenditures were both approved unanimously. Guest Bill Isler Sr. was in attendance and had some historical sandstones that he would be placing around the new flag pole. The stones are believed to be the steps of the old school house that sat at Mahoning Corners, just north of the village. The stone with a chiseled date of 1844 was the cornerstone of the large barn on the Union Cooperative Farm just north of Mahoning Corners, most recently part of the Steve and Helen Farkas Farm. Isler will place the stones and mount a plaque on them that tells their history, or believed history, since they were unable to find documentation of the stones. The stones were given to the township by Steve and Helen Farkas and John and Paulette (Farkas) Roe.

Hiram Township Trustee News

Stacy Turner | Contributing Reporter Hiram Twp - In this month’s Fire Report, the response time was noted as roughly 6 minutes. In response to questions regarding the breakdown of Fire and EMS funds between the Hiram Township and the village, which jointly fund these services, Fire Chief Bill Byers was present at the last trustee meeting. He explained to trustees his understanding that his fire budget is paid through the capital fund by the village. Trustees wanted assurances that in the instance that fire funds were not used in a given year, those funds would be rolled over for the next budget year. Chief Byers noted that he would be meeting with both Township Fiscal Officer Diane Rodhe and Village’s Chief Financial Officer Susan Skrovan together in order that all parties can clarify the situation. In similar news, the chief discussed the issues behind the problems with 911 service that were discussed at last month’s meeting where emergency calls were not routed properly. While the issue is being followed up with both Portage and Geauga Counties and the EMA, Chief Byers reiterated that residents should keep the department’s emergency number (330) 569-7505 at hand, either by their landline or programmed into their cell phones. He is looking into doing a mass-mailing to residents to share this information, as well. Moving forward, Chief Byers again thanked the trustees for their part in building the helipad, which is centrally located at the Township’s property on State Route 82. The helipad was created through cooperation among the township, the village, Whiting Trucking, and Ronyak Paving. According to Chief Byers, that teamwork recently came to fruition, as the helipad served as the landing site to transport a critically injured patient quickly to surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, saving her from a 40+ minute drive to the trauma center. “It humbles me that we had so much cooperation to make the vision of a local helipad a reality,” Byers shared. “The cooperation has been wonderful, and may help save many lives.” In other news, Chief Byers noted that the non-working emergency siren was serviced and found to have been damaged by a lightening strike. He also reported that the new squad was out at the graphics shop and would be in service by the end of October. Next, the trustees discussed the township’s contract with the Village Police Department. Each expressed

hearing positive feedback from township residents, who appreciated the increased visibility and coverage by village patrols. As a result, the township voted to continue with this increased coverage, which was budgeted through the summer months, but will now be continued through January 2018. In other financial news, Ms. Rodhe provided an update on the audit currently being conducted. She explained the auditor’s recommendations thus far, including that the township create a form so employees can request days off in advance for supervisor approval; they also offered direction on writing purchase orders in lieu of issuing ‘then and now’ documentation. She concluded, “So far, the audit is going well.” Lastly, Ms. Rodhe mentioned the need to streamline the township’s new hire procedures. Trustees asked that she identify a checklist of the steps she follows from the time of application to the employee’s first paycheck. In his Road Report, Tom Matota shared that the cold storage building at the State Route 82 property has been completed. Matota also asked that the trustees replace the Service Department land line with a new number, (330) 569-8908, noting that this cell phone number is the best way for trustees and residents to contact his team. The next regularly scheduled township trustee meeting will be held on November 7th at 7 pm.

In Roads, ditching has been completed along Colton Road. Gotham Road (east and west) has been chipped and sealed along with Wadsworth Road. Salt for the winter has been ordered. Some repair work at the end of Bryant Road was discussed. They are looking into putting in a culvert and catch basin to improve drainage. They also are looking at ways to improve the berm there as well In cemetery news, Gano reported that the lot pins have been raised and painted orange so they can be seen in the winter. The leaves are being removed as they fall and they will need nine footers poured for headstones. A resident questioned the placement of a sand stone that is being used for a headstone at the cemetery. The person was unhappy about it and thought it set a precedent as to what could be placed on graves in the future. They trustees took the comments under advisement. New cemetery rules and regulations came up again, and after some discussion, the trustees have tabled the vote until next month. In zoning, two permits were issued. One for a shed and one for an assigned land split. The monies for both have been turned in. Demolition of a trailer on Silica Sand is about complete. Debris clean-up is all that’s left. A bid for demolition of 9088 Horn Road went out; Zoning Inspector Joe Pinti is supposed to be notified by NDS before the demolition begins. Letters were sent to residents about violation of zoning. Pictures and a file have been started for each one. Trustees received a nuisance complaint about loud dirt bikes and ATV’s near the Stanley and Gotham Road intersection. The residents claim the bikes and ATV’s have no mufflers on them. The bikes and ATV’s are being ridden on their own private property, so trustees are unsure if anything can be done, but will seek a legal opinion on the matter. Fire district report: Gano said a new radio communication system was ordered and should be in soon. In old business, a discussion was held on whether to have culvert placed in the new cemetery so they can accesses the back section to maintain it. After some discussion, Danny Burns will look into purchasing the culverts. Currently they have been accessing it thru a neighbor’s property with permission. Community message board similar to the one at J.A. Garfield School has been ordered and will be in soon. Scotchman Electric will do the installation. In new business, Gano reported that the plow truck needs the oil pan replaced. After some discussion, the truck will be taken to John Sedensky in Nelson for repair. The trustees passed a resolution that requests that the Portage County Budget Commission distribute local government funding for Portage County cities, townships, and villages for a period of ten years 2019-2028. Basically they are looking for a more evenly division of the government local funding monies. The townships want a bigger piece of the pie, so to speak. They are looking to have the monies divided up by capita basis, having a minimum guaranteed amount go to each entity. Currently the distribution of funds is lopsided and many townships, villages and cities are seeking revision too. The next Trustees meeting will be November 2, 2017 at 7pm at the town hall. 8052 State St., Suite 1 Garrettsville, OH 44231 330-527-8191

The S&P 500 consists of 500 stocks chosen for market size, liquidity and industry group representation.

If the ROR falls to 5% from 6%, the PV amount rises by 13% to $2.21 million. If the ROR rises to 7% from 6%, the PV amount falls by 11% to $1.75 million. These calculations do not account for the payment of federal income taxes which would be due as a result of withdrawals from any pre-tax retirement account (source: BTN Research). 3.

On Monday November 6 and Tuesday November 7 Coleman Professional Services and the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Portage County will offer a Mental Health First Aid training in Ravenna. This groundbreaking 8-hour training course gives people the tools to identify when someone might be struggling with a mental health or substance use problem and to connect them with appropriate support and resources when necessary. Many people experience mental health conditions, but may be reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance use problems can be difficult to detect. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know when and how to step in. As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get them until it is too late. Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a five-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support. In just ten years, Mental Health First Aid has become a full-blown movement in the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more than 600,000 people are certified Mental Health First Aiders, and that number is growing every day. The cost is $25 and includes the workbook, training materials, and a continental breakfast each day. The training will be held from 8am-noon on November 6 and 7 at Coleman Professional Services, 3922 Lovers Lane, Ravenna. To register call 330.673.1756 ext 201 or visit www.mental-health-recovery.org

On November 7th, 2017, the Community EMS District (Garrettsville Village, Freedom Township, and Nelson Township) is asking for the continued support of the residents of the District. The District is proposing a levy of 3.5 mills to IMMEDIATELY REPLACE the current 2.7 mill levy that has been maintained since 1999. Upon the passing of this new levy, the 2.7 mill levy would be immediately terminated, and the increase in millage would only be 0.8 (not 3.5 additional mills). What is the EMS District?: The Community EMS District is a 3 representative board (one delegate from the village and each township). This board oversees and maintains the provision of emergency medical services to the EMS District. This includes 24/7 full-time around the clock staffing of paramedics, advanced EMTs, and EMTs. Outside of the occasional instance of multiple concurrent calls for service, Advanced Life Support is always available on every ambulance. The EMS Station is located on Forest Street in Garrettsville, and has three ambulances and one support vehicle in service. The District employs three full-time paramedics, and numerous part-timers (roughly 25) of all certifications. The District received 969 calls for service in 2016. The District only provides response for emergency calls (tax dollars are not being allocated for routine trips, interfacility transfers, or for-profit activities). Why: Why would the Community EMS District be in need of an additional 0.8 mills when District residents are used to receiving outstanding service, response times, and the department has safe and modern equipment and technology? Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we recently purchase a new ambulance? These are great questions-please take the time to hear the details. The increase in millage is simply to accommodate three capital improvement issues that will all directly benefit the taxpayers. It should be noted that the 2.7 mill levy was passed in 1999 and has remained a static value accounting for 62% of all income. The last levy replacement was in 2005. The last increase in the actual cost for service was 2010 (after reviewing local costs, the bill for service and per mile for transport was updated). It should be noted that the EMS District uses â&#x20AC;&#x153;soft billingâ&#x20AC;? for residents with insurance. Insurance is billed, and whatever is paid is accepted. The resident receives NO balance bill for any under-payment by insurance and the additional cost is written off. Uninsured patients receive a very meager flat rate fee, one time bill that the State of Ohio may assist the District in recouping. The District is a non-profit entity. What are the three needed capital improvement issues? ITEM 1: Two ambulances (2004 and 2006) that are the oldest in the fleet will need to be either replaced, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;remountedâ&#x20AC;?. A remount is using the old â&#x20AC;&#x153;patient boxâ&#x20AC;? off the back and placing it onto a new chassis. The E-450 chassis that remounting would use are in the process of being discontinued (forcing the District to act sooner than later)-and remounting these two squads would save $100,000 dollars by avoiding replacing the vehicles outright. Spending a bit more up front would actually save this amount of money, as well as put the three ambulances on a more regular replacement schedule once again. It is the desire of the District to make this happen; should the ballot show that taxpayers agree, this is a beneficial and financially sound plan. ITEM 2: Three LifePak 12 heart monitors have reached the end of their service life. They were purchased as stateof-the-art in 1999, and have served us extremely well. However, just like our cell phones, advances in software, features, and abilities have made them obsolete to the point where service contracts are no longer offered. The District desires to replace these monitors with three LifePak 15 heart monitors. (LifePak monitors our ambulances carry are capable of monitoring heart rhythm, all vital signs, exhaled carbon dioxide (confirming airway tube placement as correct), acquiring 12-lead EKGs, transmitting these EKGs to any facility we transport to, defibrillating, cardioverting, acting as a temporary pacemaker, and recording medication times.) What is the benefit of upgrading to LifePak 15s? The upgrade would obviously put up-to-date monitors in the ambulances that are able to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;service contractsâ&#x20AC;?. They would possess all the new state-of-the-art technology. This includes things such as increased screen visibility in daylight, more sensitive EKG measurements and data, increased memory and upgradability, and would be

projected to serve the District for the same length of service as the old LikePak 12s (18 years). A major advance in technology, the new monitors would all have â&#x20AC;&#x153;biphasicâ&#x20AC;? defibrillation as opposed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;monophasicâ&#x20AC;? defibrillation. This means that the defibrillator no longer just applies one large shock from point A to point Bâ&#x20AC;Ś..it actually pushes AND â&#x20AC;&#x153;pullsâ&#x20AC;? between A and B. How does this benefit the patient? A decreased dose of electricity is often able to be used, producing less cell damage to the heart muscle. It also has a higher â&#x20AC;&#x153;chanceâ&#x20AC;? of doing what we want it to do on the first shock. Less energy, fewer shocks, less cardiac strain, better defibrillation on the first shock (emsworld.com/node/175719). A public YouTube video that promos the Lifepak 15 may be seen here (please excuse the manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic music): https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=YhuMgL2wJ5U These cardiac monitors cost $35,000 each. The District has submitted FEMA grant applications for financial assistance to replace these monitors for the last five years. They have all been denied. ITEM 3: Unit 2926, the SUV that acts as a staff response vehicle, is simply in need of replacement. This vehicle is a 2004 Ford Explorer that has served us very well, but will need replacement in the future. Financially relevant information: *LifeForce medical billing specialists handle all insurance billing. They received roughly 46% of the billed monies; this is at or above the industry standard. *FEMA grants are submitted annually to request assistance with needed projects. *Much vehicle maintenance is completed in-house. *Grant secured from Ohio Bureau of Workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comp to upgrade to power-lift cots, decreasing injury risk to patients and staff. This grant awarded $40,000, and is only available every ten years. *Community EMS District was found eligible to receive a â&#x20AC;&#x153;LUCAS 3â&#x20AC;? CPR device from University Hospital, worth $15,000. (The passing of this levy would also allow the District to trade-in the two currently owned first-generation â&#x20AC;&#x153;LUCASâ&#x20AC;? devices and bring them up to date with the current technology. These now can operate on self-contained battery packs instead of large bottles of compressed air.) *Firehouse Subs awarded the EMS District a grant for $24,000, allowing us to now obtain a Polaris Ranger (outfitted for medical care and patient extrication) to provide care and rescue off the beaten path, such as in wooded areas. It will also act as a first response vehicle at activities such as Garrettsville Summerfest. *See item 1 detailing the proposed double-squad remount, which would actually save $100,000 in funds. *A trend in increasing annual call volumes places higher costs on fuel, payroll, equipment, etc. 2004- 645 runs 2005- 616 runs 2006- 703 runs 2007- 798 runs 2008- 847 runs 2009- 777 runs 2010- 794 runs 2011- 832 runs 2012- 890 runs 2013- 853 runs 2014- 881 runs 2015- 1,004 runs (2015 Nearly doubled from a decade prior!) 2016- 969 runs What would this cost?: The Portage County Auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office has determined that the 3.5 mill Community EMS levy would cost a home owner of a $100,000 home just $122.50 per year. In Summary: The Community EMS District is asking for a 3.5 mill levy (that must legally be called additional) to immediately replace the current levy of 2.7 mills. This is only 0.8 mill in â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;additionalâ&#x20AC;? monies. 62% of the Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income comes from the current levy alone, and the remaining portions have either been maximized (billing collection while maintaining soft billing) or are unable to be modified (donations and grants). The proposed increase would cover all the recommended improvements to capital equipment, referencing items that have proven to last us 15-20 years. This levy is an investment in the future of EMS services in the District; where time and time again the ballot has shown that our generous taxpayers recognize that not all EMS systems are created equal. It has been demonstrated that exemplary service best comes from great people with great training using great equipment -- the residents of the District expect no less. This levy will secure the capital improvements outlined, that we feel are needed to continue offering state-of-the art pre-hospital care. We ask that on November 7th, you reaffirm your commitment to US being committed to caring for YOU. Invest in Your EMS, please vote YES on Issue 36 for the Community EMS District on November 7th.

Financial Priorities Young Families Should Address

Nuts About Fall

Provided By Chris Perme | Columnist As you start a family, you start to think about certain financial matters. Before you became a mom or dad, you may not have thought about them much, but so much changes when you have kids. Parenting presents you with definite, sudden, financial needs to address. By focusing on those needs today, you may give yourself a head start on meeting some crucial family financial objectives tomorrow. The to-do list should include: Life & disability insurance coverage. If one or both of you cannot work and earn income, your household could struggle to meet education expenses, medical expenses, or even paying the bills. Disability insurance payments could provide some financial support in such an instance. Some employers provide it, but that coverage often proves insufficient. Every fifth American has a disability, and more than 25% of 20-year-old Americans will become disabled before reaching retirement age. One in eight working people will be disabled for five years or longer during their pre-retirement years. Could you imagine your household going that long on only a fraction of its current income?1,2 Generally, the earlier you buy life insurance coverage, the cheaper the premiums will be. The biggest savings await those consumers who buy coverage before age 30 and before they marry and have kids. After 30, high blood pressure and cholesterol problems may begin to show up on blood tests, and other health problems may surface. As an example, a single, child-free 25-year-old in good health purchasing a 30-year term policy with a $500,000 death benefit will pay a monthly premium of about $75. The premium jumps to around $115 for the typical 35-year-old married parent in good health.3 Estate planning. Is it too early in life to think about this? No. Life insurance, a will, a living trust – these are smart moves, especially if you have children with any kind of special needs or health concerns of your own that may shorten your longevity or lead to weaknesses in body or mind. Besides documents linked to insurance and wealth transfer, consider a durable power of attorney and a health care proxy. If you are considering designating a guardian for your children in the event of the unthinkable, whoever you appoint needs to be comfortable with the possibility of taking legal responsibility for your child. That person must also have the financial wherewithal to be a good guardian, and his or her family or spouse must also be amenable to it. College planning. What will a year at a public university cost in 2035? Vanguard, the investment company, conducted an analysis and projected an average tuition of $54,070. (The 2035 projection was $121,078 for a private college.) So, the message is clear: start saving now. Saving and investing for college through a 529 plan, a Coverdell ESA, or other accounts that offer the potential for tax-deferred growth may give you a better chance to meet those future costs.4 An emergency fund. Ideally, your household maintains a cash cushion equivalent to 3-6 months of salary. Build it a little at a time, set aside a bit of money per month, and you may be surprised at how large it grows during the coming years. Address these priorities now, and you may lower your chance of financial stress in the future. Chris Perme may be reached at 330-527-9301 or cperme@financialguide.com www.permefinancialgroup. com.

Iva Walker | Columnist

I heard a good definition the other day (Good, meaning that it more or less matches what I think). Some weather dude said that “Climate” is what you can expect; “weather” is what you get. I used to tell the kids that climate is the long-term, average, overview of your climatic situation. Weather is what you can see out of the window…or feel blowing in around the door sill… or hear howling down the chimney…or have to shovel out of the driveway. Looks like we’re about to fall back on “seasonal” weather for the upcoming week or so, although the Farmers—of Almanac fame--seem to be leaning toward rainy, stormy and cold, while the National Weather folk are talking pretty dry and cool-ish. I figure that whenever you are going to have an outdoor event, that’s when it will rain. Plan on it. The various vicissitudes of weather have combined to make this a pretty dull fall for the “leaf-peeper” people from here to New England, where they rely heavily on visitors coming to see and appreciate the brilliant foliage colors. This year it’s been warm and dry enough to sort of suppress most of that. Fifty Shades of Brown is not likely to be a big seller. Speaking of brown, the Old Farmer says that Little Brown Bats hibernate now (Can’t be too soon for me) and Timber Rattlesnakes move to winter dens. On the same page he writes that oak trees produce more nuts than all other trees put together; for instance, in a good year, an acre of red oaks can produce 500 pounds of acorns. Squirrels, rejoice! However, scientists think that oaks plan their abundant years so that the acorneating creatures (Of which there are many. Pioneer farmers used to send their pigs out into the woods to fatten up on the many acorns on the ground—probably giving rise to the saying, “Root, hog, or die”, meaning “Don’t expect any hand-outs. Your survival depends on what you can do on your own.”) would not eat up all of the future oak trees before they ever got a chance to take root. Roots, in one theory, are believed to be the means by which the trees communicate with each other by emitting chemical signals where they come into proximity. Who knows what else they might be saying underground? Other than severe anxiety when some dude approaches with an axe or chainsaw, I don’t imagine that they have a whole lot of convey, beyond information about woodpeckers or maybe truffles. Truffles are another subject entirely—it’s about harvest time for them right now, in case you were wondering or planning to go out searching. They’re associated with oak trees, mainly, although some other trees occasionally get into the picture, like the pecan trees in the Southern U.S. and sometimes hazelnut trees. Anyway, the truffle is all the rage now; truffle oil can even be spotted in the grocery store aisles (It’s frequently fake) and some cheeses have truffles listed as ingredients. Truffles have a history, having been mentioned by the neo-Sumerians somewhere around 2000 B.C.E. (

maybe on cuneiform clay tablets?), by Plutarch, who opined that they were the result of action between lightning, water and warmth, by the Roman poet and satirist Juvenal who connected them with thunder and rain (lightning…thunder…who knew?) and even Muhammed, who said that they were like manna (food for the Israelites in the desert) and that water from truffles would cure eye diseases. In any case, no matter what these esteemed ancients thought, science now classifies them as fruiting bodies of a subterranean ascomycete fungus (Anybody else remember what was considered the height of wit in the fifties or thereabouts, “Take it easy, Breezy. There’s a fungus among us.” Eh? I don’t even recall what it was supposed to be warning against. Spies?); the spores are spread by fungivores. Isn’t that a goofy name? Pigs apparently love them (Pigs are usually classified as omnivores, as are we.) and are often used to locate truffles around the roots of oak trees in the woods—or sometimes, recently, in truffle plantations— but they must be handled carefully or they will “pig out”, so to speak, and eat all of the little treasures that they dig up. Treasures, because they sell for somewhere round $3600 per pound. Actually, most truffle hunters use especially-trained dogs to find truffles—dogs don’t eat the finds. The French epicure/gourmand/ gastronome (He liked to eat good stuff) Brillat-Savarin called a truffle “the diamond of the kitchen”, and, like diamonds, they don’t get very large. The world recordholder, as certified by Guinness, weighed in at 2 pounds, 14 ounces, so most cooks and chefs are pretty sparing in their use of truffles. You can, however, get a burger with truffles instead of mushrooms for somewhere around $150…and up. Can’t compare to a Freddieburger, but what can? You can get truffles raw—usually shaved--in some dish, or as an ingredient in cheese, or as flavoring in oil to be used—sparingly-- in cooking or salads. They come in several varieties, mostly defined by color or point of origin, like Black, (Perigord) Summer, White, Whitish (really), Pecan, Oregon. There’s even a truffle vodka (Black Moth), though why one would want to be drinking mushroom-flavored alcoholic beverages is beyond me. And, like most expensive things, there are fake goods out there, rings of thieves, black market dealers, hints that “the mob” is controlling many of the outlets and dealings in truffles, worldwide. So, the next time you spot an oak tree, give a thought to what it may be saying about you to its buddies or little fungi friends. And watch out it doesn’t drop an acorn on your head as a distraction.
