By M.ke Ferr&n
Sheffield Lake Mayor John Piskura may very well epitQmiz» the old adagu of "thinking oulsjdf cjf the box"
According to Sheffield Village Mayor Darleue
Ondercui. Piskuia could have overshot that box by far too
much for her liking.
OIIT a week ago. the mayor came up with a proposal
to,merge his city with Sheffield Village.' The propesitfrn
was thw result of brainstoniungfordifferent ideas to twlp

watched itsfifthattempt at passing a 9-99-miU levy ail in
the March Primary.
lust prior to the election It was discovered that the district ".vas in an even large financial hole that equated to a
toots than S4 million deficit by the end of next year without a levy passage.
Though the plan is far from finalized. Piskura has
already contacted Ondercin to discuss tha possibility of
Combining both cities.
According to Piskura who noted that ailfiguresand
data could be "subjective.' an estimated SI million could
be saved and given to the schools with the merger
Piskura wanted to be clear in bis intention of a merger.
Dot art annexation, but noted that he and council have "at
kast" an obligation to explore different funding sources
for the schools.
Sheffield-Sheffield Lake School Treasurer David

Piskura said the schools would either leave both cities
In a "huge debt"* in the future or cause the property taxes
to bo outrageously high in a residential effort to make up
Uie difference in the short term,
"Either way you look at it. the community will have to
pay andresident*and businesses will suffer," Piskura said
in a written proposal.
Piskura said he realizes the state fundmg system is a
large part of the problem, but acknowledged that corrections in the current funding system will not change in
time to help the Sheffield-Sheffield !**» situation.
The Sheffield Lake mayor U in the process of looking
at the budgets from both cities, as wella as athe school district's, to get a clearer picture of the ftn n" * situation.
According to Piskura, the Ohio Revised Code (ORC)
states that a merger Would be legal provided that the residents would veto U into effect

.10 percent of the electors (registered voters) would have to

Once on agreement wai reached between thu commissioners, the board of elections could place the item on the
ballot for a public vote.
Piskura said that prior to anything happening, the residents in each community would have to approve of the
merger or to pursue the idea itself.
If residents organize? and circulate a petition. Fiskura
would th«n push on in his research of the roergts.

The meeting got loud and frustrating to shurt order
as residents asked tjuebtiuns and accused board members of dishonesty. Board members and Treasurer
David Chambers attempted to answer questions, but
many simply could not tre satisfactorily answered.
The biggest questions, "what will the state da," and
"when will the Mate do whatever it will do." proved
totally unanswerable.
Athletic Boosters Club Treasurer Suo Baker asked
what the boosters should do now, in light of possible
state cuts and a fee increase for participation in sports
that goes from a minimal fee this year to S350 per student per sport next year, with a family cap of S650.
"Do we stop fund-raising or what? There's so
much uncertainty, what do wo do?" Baker asked.
"Everything you guys do is goinR to help the kids."
board president Bill Emery said- "But right now we
can't tell you what's going to happen because we
don't know."
Many asked questions about who was responsible
for the PRESS' Feb. 25 story that revealed that the district's debt is far deeper than previously thought. But
they generally agreed with board member Barbara
Miller that they'd have been even angrier if the red
ink story had come out after the election instead of
before.'

Warnke denigrates
To the Editor
I have long been offended by the
almost c o m p u t e lack of finesse by the
editor of your paper but now this
inane writing has spread to your staff
writer DM. Warnke. In his last two
columns,, be has managed to denigrate
the religioui practices of many of us
by making supposedly humorous
remark* about things that many of us
hold sacred. In the last l " " e he not
only demonstrated a complete lack or
undemanding of the true purpose or
Lent and t h e penitential practices
adapted by s o many sensible people.
but ha had to boast of what can only
be constnitd as a drinking problem. I
am euro that those who have suffered
with or from the agony of alcohol
addiction will hardly find humor in
someone whose great regard for
Sunday la as a free day to indulge.

young and inclined to be arrogant, but

Respect season of Lent
To the Editor:
i was terribly offended by the
March 10 "Off the Beat" column entitled "Lenten induced sobriety is
Absolved, by Absolut!"
In my opinion, this self-Rratifyin3
j-lory was nothing mure than a tasteless waste of space. Perhaps a lesson
in self-discipline, written by & holy
martyr of The Early Church, would
have been more appropriate...not to
.mention edifyingIn the interim, please be mere sensitive to your readers...particularly
throughout this most solemn season of
Creat Lent. It is not to be mocked.

Play hardball with Bay
To the Editor:
After reading Bay Village Mayor
Sutherland's comments about not
being able to fund their portion of the
park for yet another year. 1 would like
to point out the only reason Bay
Village purchased this property in the
first place to alleviate flooding problems in western Bay Village by building a retention basin 00 this property.
They have achieved their original
goal at the cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars to Avon Lake residents. Now we are going to purchase a
piece of property that only benefits
out of town resident!? NICK deal for
theuwtupid on the part of our ciH
administrators, past and present.
It is lime to play hardball.
Discontinue allowing Bay Village
storm water runoff into the completed
basin until the funding is allocated
and this protect moves forward. I am
sure our law department can get creative with thai.

Thank you for helping
Letter to the Editor;
I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to
all the wonderful individual* that
have donated ihtir time and euerjry to
help others.
1 was the director of a small social

accomplishments our agency offered
to our clients.
Due to the fact that certain Individ*
uals and certain volunteers felt I handled, an alleged sexual harassment
Incident inappropriately, myself and
Individuals connected with the incident have suffered. 1 have lost my job
because11 had to take appropriate measures warranted by my position. I
tried the best 1 could to rectify the situation, and begged for help, to no
avail. When the situation finally was
dealt with. I was blamed for others'
actions, which I could not control. I
have been accused, tormented * and
degraded, and now have lost the only
}ol> I have ever loved in my life, which
was ID help those in need. In leaving.
I uskitd for a small severance package
autl iva-i denied. I was told I had
hcnltli coverage far one month, and
found out after using the coverage, it
was terminated.
The reason for this letter Is to thank
all ot the individuals, churches, businesses and organizations that have

HL- noted that Legacy Pointu falls
within a R-l development category
whidi allows for building with a 10-foot

could technically file as an R-l(a) development, which pennits building within
three feet of neighboring property.
Avon Late Mayor Rob Berner objected to remarks the city was giving Kopf
any spuci.il treatment.
'"I resent the accusation thai we've
done tha.." he said, adding since being
in office Kopf has received the same

Benit'f also added that if Legacy
('uiale were to go bitk and restart the
process, they could receive R-l building
permits, and as allowed by code, still
build within 1U feet, but the landscaping buffer would not be required.
Phillips will need to collect 2,000
signatures from registered voters before
the issue can go to ballot in the
November election. A source at ths
Lorain County Board of Elections said
that Phillips "had not yet pulled petitions for the referendum, as of PRESS

Furthermore, a wireless computer may have a range

is being produced from the wireless system.
It is entirely possible thai an outside user could gain

Hackers could also install unwanted data on the system anil place spyware into the computer that would give

by 54 votes. Based on current appropriations and revenues, the five-year forecast shows a need for a passage of 16.63 mills sometime this year in order to stay
solvent until 2007."
According to ODE Public Affairs Director J.C Benlan,
the ODE is working with the district based on the 5-year
forecast and has not yet determined whether the district

the local school hoard in putting together a comprehensive recovery plan."
"We wUlmakeadrtPnnirwtioncnca we get a revised

same fi"«n"»l situation. The district will receive notification once we make our determination. Often districts are
placed on fiscal caution and then removed from caution
soon after. The caution label was designed by us to allow
the district the opportunity to avoid the state auditor from
declaring fiscal watch."
Fiscal watch la declared when the school district meets
financial conditions that threaten its solvency. Within 60
days of declaration, the district must develop and submit
afln«>wt»lplan to eliminate the financial crisis, and the
ODE must evaluate the planforapproval within 120 days.
Fiscal watch provides the district officials and school

Thtjre art* ways to stop, or al least defer war driving.
However, as a result of the plug-and-phiy capabilities of
wireless systems, assuring security is often as simple as
changing the default settings during installation of a
wireless network. There is an encryption standard used
by wireless networks. However, it could be undermined
by common mistakes, including the failure to activate it
entirely or engage the eccryptiun key set to the default
value.
Recently, programs have appeared on the Internet
d at breaking encryption keys.
Tl«? terra "war driving" is derived from an old hacking technique known as war dialing. In the early
1980s, hackers would dial countless phone numbers
until they successfully reached a dial-up network giving them similar access to private networks.
Jonathan Cdchal. president of Xenon Technologies,
a computer and Internet company in Avon, said that he
hopes all wireless users are taking the proper security
precautions while setting up the new technology.
"Wireless networks are beginning to gain popularity with residences in the local area." Cachat said.
"They are easy to set up and convenient for people
who want to share their high speed Internet connection.
"However, many consumers are unaware of their
newly installed network's vulnerabilities. Most people
purchase the equipment from a local computer store
and hook it up. They are amazed with the fact they had
set it up and it works and they stop there failing to set
up any security options."
Ca.cb.al said that he recently learned of the hacking
capability when be purchased a Personal Data
Assistant'(PDA) with built in wireless capabilities.
"While I was testing the range of my home wireless
network. 1 stumbled upon something very interesting."
he said. "In my front yard tin Avon) 1 could not only
connect to my network, but my neighbor's network
also: Within a few minutes I cculd have had full access
to my neighbor's Internet connection, all the files on
their computer and had the ability to print from their
printer."
If that wasn't enough. Cachat said that he drove
•lruund his neighborhood with his PDA in "search"
mode (searching far a wireless signal) and within minutes could ha\e gained access to dozens of other networks.
"Ninety-five percent of them were unsecured," he
said. "1 could have had the ability to connect to ail of
ihera."

the current fiscal year between 2 percent and 8 'ptircent ol
tha school district's general fund revenue for the preceding
fiscal year, the district has not passed a levy to eliminate
the deficit in the succeeding year, and the AOS determines
there b no reasonable cause for the deficit or that declaring
fiscal watch is necessary to prevent further fiscal decline.
"I think the staterecognizeswe are infinancialcrisis,"
Chambers said. "They are putting an enormous amount of
state funds in the Mentor schools situation. The ultima!e
challenge is that the state is going to come in and basically look at any changes that they can make to put the district back in the black. The largest change is the passage of
a levy.
"We are not going over the basics in terms of education.
We are providing an excellent all-around education. If we
want to continue to do that, the state's number one recommendation would bo to pass a levy."
- Regarding the levy. Chambers also noted ttut it is critical that the district communicates to residents the need*
of the school.
T h e fobs the teachers are doing in the schools without
the necessary funding is amazing,'* he said. "The concert

Consider growth-and-income funds for long-term goals
To work toward achieving your longterm goats, such as a comfortable retirement, you'll QEed to Invest in growth
stocks. Yet, you may be leery ofthe investment risk posed by these vehicles-after all.
the stocks with the greatest potential far
growth also cany the greatest potential lor
price volatility. So. what can >ou do? For
one thing, you can consider adding some
income to your growth.
Specifically, you may want to invest in
tacome-oriented stocks-those that pay dividends to shareholders. The prices of
income-producing slocks will certainly
fluctuate, but generally not as much as the
price* of growth stocks.
One of the best ways to mix incomeoriented stocks in with your growth stocks
is through growth-and-incorae mutual
funds. As the nanie suggests, the primary
objective of these funds is to grow your

principal, with a secondary goal of providing income. Typiraliy, these funds pay dividends on a quarterly or semiannual basis.
When you invest in growth-anduicome funds, you receive some key benefits:
• DiwrsiGcation-As is the case with a!l
mutual funds, growth-and-income funds
are made up of dozens, or even hundreds,
uf individual securities, Crowth-andincume funds may contain a diversified
array of high-qualily domestic and foreign
stacks, corporate bonds and government
securities. By spreading your investment
dollars over these different vehicles, you
can help protect yourself against market
downturns dial may afluct one asset class
particularly haid.
• Professionalraanageroent-Whenyou
invest in a grcmth-and-income fund, you
automatically get die services of an experiencedteamof investment professionals. A
portfolio manager makes the day-to-day
"buy" and "st-u" decisions, relying on a
variety of resources to madniize the performance of the fund. Am! financial analysts evaluate the suit&bilily of all stocks
and other investments that go into the
fund.
• Liquidity-You can sell your shares at
tlie current net ti&set value on any business •
day.
[However, this value may be more or
less than your original purchase price.)
Reinvesting incums
Many people who invest in growth*
and-jpeome funds dont actually need the
money for their cash How. Instead, they
reinvest the dividends back into the fund.
Should vou follow this dividend reinvestment plan? It depends on your individual needs. Reinvesting dividends is
certainly a grrat way to build up more
shares in th« funds you own. However, at
different stages in your life, particularly in
retirement, you may warn or nt;**! to take
the dividends to supplement your income.
In any case, dividends are now more
attractive than ever The maximum tax rate
on dividends is now 15 percent, following
the passage of tax law change* in 20O3.
Previously, dividends were taxed al your
individual income tax rala.

Many homes need some fix-up and
repairs to prepare them for buyers, but
when should that be done? Should the listing of a property be delayed until the
house is in "model-home" condition?
;••. For !he answer, consider the scenario of
a department store during renovation* that
puts up "Excuse Our Dust" signs. Which
would Impress you mnsf 1) shopping at a
store that promises to look better in the
future 2) shopping at oos in the midst of
actually improving their looks, or 3) waiting,U> thop until the store reopens, brightly illuminated
with spacious aisles and
decorated to1 gel your attention?
1 believe matt slioppcn would rather
wait and do their shopping, after tbu renovation is complete. Howsver, that being
said, most department 5tores know that
you, the buyer, probably will not wait and
will "merely go tn another store to make
.your purchase; When that happens, the
store has lost a sals and maybe a customer.
I .The same is true of selling your home.
Most buyers want to purchase a home
matching their mental picture of their
dream home-now. Real estate agents want

Ken Kodger
to show homes that will please their buy
ers-now. Given the number of competing
hocus available, most buyers will Uj able
tn shop and purchase a home that is in
exceptional condition.
Once you decide to sell your home, gi't
sound aiivicu from your real estate agent
about needed repairs. Prepare a written
list, and complete every' item before the
"For Sale" sign goes up. If you do no* have
your property in "model home" condition,
you will probably not find a bu>w.
Remember that the biggest competitor for
an existing home salo is the builder's new
homo.
On the other hand, if >ou take the time,
once you decide to sell, ta do the fix-up
and cosmetic improvements, you may be
Uke the department store and lose your
buyer to another home. Therefore, tha best
advice I can give is to suggest you keep
your home in "model-honie™ condition at
all times., One thing I have learned is thil
it is easier and more cost-effective to ktft-p
all aspects of a home in like-new condition
as you live in the home, than to try to make
up for years of neglect jus) before you selL
It is called "preventative maintenance*

Following a process of prevetitative

market, it will also give you the opportunity to live continuotisiy in .* "raodVi

you will be selling and maintain your
property accordingly.
;
Keeping your home in "model homo"
condition is not easy but will always pay.
Then whim U» time comes to sell, and that

in their respective age groups hi the Ultra
Diviston.
"Tbere werea lot of national teams and
a lot of top athletes from around the country.'* Centifo saii "This was myfirstcompetition as a black belt and, personally, one
of my biggest accomplishments."
The accomplishments were huge for
both athletes, who credit their success to
the ckills and lessons taught by their competition coaches and teachers. Master Toe
Kim and John Kim.
"When competing, Taekwondo is a
one-tin-ane contest," Willsmer said.
"However with the support of Master Joe
Kim and his brother Mr. John Kim. together with the legions of knowledgeable parents and dedicated students that attend
every competition, when one is a part of
Kim's competition team, the ring is never a

Gentile agrees.
"Anytime you compete, (here's a lot
that goes through your mind." he said.
"Having Master Kim and Mr. Kini. as
coaches, as far as preparation went, f was
fine. Tliat's huge. As with anything hi life,
if you're prepared and you have people
supporting you, it takes away a lot of anxiety. Preparation is what gives you confidence.*'
Gentile has been practicing the sport
for over litres years. This was his first competition in which he competed as a black
belt. He got involved with the sport alter
his son Joseph, now age 17. began practicing it at age 7.
"I thought it was important for him to
get involved for tworeasons,"Gentile said.
"The first was to learn discipline. The second was to learn respect Taekwondo
requires a very strong work ethic The way
they train here is hard. But that self disci*
pUne and respect you learn here applies to
everyday life outside of this school."
Gentile trains 5-6 days e week. In addition to competition, he is a cardio kickboxing teacher and has earned a green belt
in Hapkido.
YVUlsnief hud practiced Taekwondo for
over seven years.
"I practice the sport becauso it helps
keep ma Bt." Willsmer said. "It continually reinforces life skills (courtesy, respect,
self discipline, etc), and provides an
opportunity to compete and it is simply
good fan."
Willsmer Ls an assistant instructor at
the school and is a qualified United States
Taekwondo Union referee.
The two plan to represent the school in
