PENINSULA VILLAGE COUNCIL

Peninsula Village Council April 2008

THANK YOU! To Chana & Lee Spencer on Main Street who have been helping us at the Village Hall. Speaking of helping out, the planters at the village hall will need to be filled again soon! Nancy, Bob Hunker and I will be working on them in May, getting ready for the summer months. If you have any left over annuals, we’d be happy to display them.

Village Council has ordered two new police cruisers, which are expected to arrive in early May. Officer Nicodemous will be back on patrol this year – look for him as the weather warms up.

There was much discussion about the Zoning Ordinance at this month’s meeting. I urge residents to become informed and attend Planning Commission and Council meetings. There will be a Public Hearing on the Zoning Ordinance on June 9 at 6:30; one item will be the lot size change from 4 to 2 acres. The other matter will be changes to Section 2.03 of the 2005 Zoning Ordinance.

The Player’s Barn is also under much discussion, with Bob Hunker and Jodi Padrutt looking into funding for bringing water and services to the property.

The Boston Township Trustees have been invited to attend a joint meeting on May 12th at 7:00 pm.

Meetings:
Regular Planning Commission – May 6, 2008 - 7:00 pm
Regular Council Meeting – May 12, 2008 - 7:00 pm (tentative joint meeting with Boston Township Trustees first)
Board of Zoning Appeals – May 8, 2008 - 7:00 pm
Public Hearing on Zoning Ordinance Change –June 9, 2008 – 6:30 pm

Village Hall hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm daily except holidays and weekends.
330-657-2151 – Mayor and administration
330-657-2714 – Clerk Treasurer and Zoning Inspector
330-657-2089 – Service Department
330-657-2995 – Police Department

CORRECTION

Last month in the Peninsula Mix article there was a paragraph about black gum trees. It has been brought to our attention that Patty Tesmer said sweet gum trees are the most beautiful and hold their leaves long after others have fallen. Ralph Reinhart, Sr. gave one of these trees to Patty's husband, Chic. YCN regrets the error.

VALLEY FIRE BOARD

Because of increased costs for utilities, gas, etc. the District will begin “soft billing” in June. In the past we have not billed insurance companies or Medicare for our residents. Soft billing bills insurance companies and Medicare, but has no direct cost to the resident. The majority of municipalities currently soft bill and these fees are built in to most insurance coverages including Medicare. Even if your insurance does not cover these charges there will be no cost to our residents.

The District has been awarded a $3,000 EMS grant from the State of Ohio. We applied for a $350,000 FEMA equipment grant, a $33,000 FEMA heart monitor grant, and a $9,000 wildland firefighting grant from the National Park Service. Thank you to Chief Reidel for submitting these proposals.

As usual we will be at the Boston Township Hall for the Memorial Day festivities. Stop in for coffee and doughnuts and check out the new rescue vehicle.

With the recent fire at Brandywine Golf Course our thanks to the neighboring communities of Boston Heights, Hudson, and Cuyahoga Falls for their mutual aid. Thanks to the communities of Copley, Bath, Norton, and Richfield, all members of the automatic tanker response team, for their quick response. Special thanks to Carol Haramis for providing coffee and to an anonymous donor who provided pizza for the firefighters. Most importantly, thank you to our firefighters. Between the fire and cleanup they all put in over an eight hour day.

Our thanks to Appalachian Outfitters on Kendall Park for the donation of a rescue sked. We appreciate your generosity.

Best wishes to Holly Owing who has been a member of Valley Fire since 2003. Holly will be leaving on April 26th and has accepted a position on the Fairfax County department in Virginia.

AROUND THE COMMUNITY

Make sure to stop in the Peninsula Library and see the wonderful artistic display of the very talented Sara Padrutt. Sara, a graphic designer by day, creates beautiful jewelry and T-shirts with different Peninsula logos by night. Sara’s jewelry and apparel may be found at www.etsy.com. Sara’s talents go way back. Her mother, Jodi, says she has been sweeping up beads since Sara was six years old. Check out her line of apparel. To my knowledge it is the only one that just promotes Peninsula with no commercial advertisement.

John and Polly Puchalsky were very pleased to have their grandson John Daniel home for the holidays. J.D. is finishing his first tour of duty with the Army and recently returned from a fifteen months in Iraq. Currently stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington he will begin his second tour of duty this summer.

While watching Fox8 news in the morning a few weeks ago, I recognized a familiar voice. Rich Fisher was featured on the Hot List promotion in the hamburger category. Last fall Fox8 ran a similar promotion for the best in many categories in the Cleveland area. They are now promoting Akron and you have a chance to vote for Fisher’s hamburgers. It takes some maneuvering through their system, but it is wonderful to have our local restaurant in the competition. Speaking of Fisher’s, Woody Johnston has had a featured soup on the daily menu. This is highly recommended.

Betty Puchalsky is currently living at the Gardens at Western Reserve. Betty recently fell and broke her wrist. We all wish her a speedy recovery.

Dear Editors:

March 23, 2008, Easter Sunday, my daughter and her husband were coming over to my home for Easter lunch, on the way she decided to stop at Cedar Grove Cemetery and see her mother’s grave. When she got there at 11:30 AM, she was surprised to find the gates locked. She got out of her car and checked the lock and it was locked. She checked the lock because I told her what happened to me on Mothers’ Day 2007 when I went to the cemetery to see my wife’s grave and found the gate closed and the chains in place. I saw D. Schneider and he told me the locks were not locked and the police department was to open the gates. The Rules of the cemetery say Open Dawn to Dusk. I would like to see the Cemetery Board do their job or resign.

PENINSULA MIX

Our own Helen Conger, now a resident of Gardens of the Western Reserve, (on State Road near where Chart Road ends) is a devoted Cav’s fan. Her special favorite is the bushy haired South American, Anderson Varejo.

So when a friend of hers saw a vendor selling lifesize dolls of Varejo, she bought one and presented it to Helen. It now stands guard in Helen’s quarters, where visitors can drop by to see Helen's hero. He is also known as Andy, or "the wild thing."

Here is some thing to help both heating and cooling costs, especially in older houses, these are the inside storm window kits available from Dewey Hansen's firm, Hudson Extrusions.

These are vinyl frames and panes that fit over inside window frames, preferably with magnetic strips that hold them snugly in place. I have tried them and think they are great.

Get out the clothesline!

Think GREEN…spring is here…get out the clothesline!

Every were we turn these days we are hearing about “living green”, “your carbon footprint”, “conservation and sustainability”, and for good reason. We should all, as a personal mission, and as a community, think about how we can contribute to the movement of “going green”. One simple method is to embrace the wind and sunshine of summer days ahead, and abandon the clothes dryer. I can’t wait for the first even half-sunny day (and yes, sometimes there is still snow on the ground), to get my laundry out doors. For me, it just feels good, but here are a few other reasons for using Mother Nature:
  • Save money! ($65.00 saving/year if 1/2 loads air dried)
  • Clothes dryers are wasteful consumers of energy (up to 6% of total electricity) and powerful emitters of carbon dioxide (up to a ton of CO2 per household every year)
  • Clothes and sheets smell better.
  • Clothes last longer. (Where do you think lint comes from?)
  • Sunlight bleaches and disinfects
  • Clothes dryer fires account for about 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries annually.
  • Fabric Softeners and dryer sheets are full of chemicals that most of us are unaware of. Some of the chemicals found in fabric softeners and dryer sheets
    Benzyl acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer
    Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant
    Limonene: Known carcinogen
    A-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems
  • Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list
    Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders
    Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic
    Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders
    Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled
    http://www.immuneweb.org/articles/fabricsoftener.html
  • Add 1/4 cup of baking soda to wash cycle to soften fabric
  • Add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to rinse cycle to soften fabric and eliminate cling

www.laundrylist.org

So. . . get outside this summer, put up your closeline, enjoy the sun and the breeze, and celebrate your contribution to “green”.

To The Editor:

As you may know Paul Castro passed away in April 2007. Before his death Paul instructed his family to work with Bob Hunker and the Peninsula Valley Historic & Education Foundation to ensure the preservation of his property and to support the neighboring Bronson Church. Paul, who lived in the Village of Peninsula for much of his life, may have felt that his house and yard would otherwise be replaced by a gas station or McMansion.

When my wife Emily and I learned of this we contacted Bob to express our interest in restoring Paul’s house. Bob recognized the opportunity for us or other members of our extended family to someday move to Peninsula and be close to family and friends. He invited us to partner with the Foundation and each purchase a portion of Paul’s property.

Bob and I worked together to create a conservation easement, to be overseen by the Foundation that will ensure the restoration and preservation of Paul’s house and barn forever. With the help of a skilled contractor and many friends and family members, Emily and I are thrilled to take on this challenge. And we are happy to see the Foundation using the corner lots to support the beautiful Bronson Church. We appreciate the Foundation working with us and its efforts to preserve the Village of Peninsula.

Village Council out of control

At the latest Village of Peninsula council meeting, council voted to support a resolution to revert back to Peninsula’s 1991 zoning laws.

Our community has spent over $120,000 in pursuit of a Long Range Plan that was written with the help of the citizens of this community. If council had been paying attention to what the citizens had written, they would know where this community needs to be in the future.

I’m convinced that the Peninsula residents would be appalled at the primitive emotions and personal agendas that are driving our city council. As we’re all getting the kids ready for school on Monday night, our council is whittling away at our zoning laws. At council’s current pace, it won’t be long until they turn our paradise into an over populated development.

Peninsula’s zoning is comprehensive, yet vulnerable to attack by developers who aren’t concerned about your environment or view shed. Council also does not seem concerned that developers now have a free pass to maximize their profits at the expense of our privacy, natural resources, park-like setting and personal appeal. Our open door development strategy gives developers the green light to fast track their suburban designs and “top of the hill” visions into your back yard.

However, instead of preparing our community for the impact of development, council has the community focused on decreasing lot size requirements from four acres to two acres. Council has also refused to respond when asked to justify its persistent campaign to make building a development as easy as tearing down the trees.

In January, after more than a half year of debate, the mayor and a council member (one of which is on the planning commission), could not even identify the land in question. Now, only three months later, they are trying to abolish 17 years worth of zoning regulations. These are experts?

One council member is actually in court appealing our current zoning laws. If her business wins its battle against us, the changes may have a disturbing ripple effect for many Peninsula neighbors.

The same council member also told the chairperson of the Planning Commission that she personally “despises the planning commission” because of restrictions preventing her from building another home on her property. We should be very worried if these are the sentiments of the people voted to protect our community.

Less than 1% of Peninsula’s population has spoken in support of the reduced acreage changes. Yet, our council continues to distract this community and divert our attention away from important progressive issues that have long range effects on our way of life and property values.

Right now we have only two council people in support of the issues that protect the citizens of Peninsula. Ms. Holody and Mr. Hunker have sophisticated and cutting edge ideas that compliment the renaissance minds in our community. If one of them misses the next meeting, then council can vote without any resistance to their ego driven, self centered agendas.

It’s time to call your council person and attend community meetings in support of intelligent changes to our zoning laws. The next council meeting is Monday, May 12th. We need your help. It seems that the majority of Peninsula residents are not represented at council meetings. Please speak up.

On Monday June 9th there is a special public hearing to finalize the four to two acre changes. With any luck the majority of council may hear our cry for environmental conservation, view shed consideration, alternative energy and protection from overzealous developers. Let’s keep Peninsula from becoming “just another development”.

THE PENINSULA PYTHON

A story went around our little berg about a snake – you must have heard he was big and wild and moved real fast a second look just didn’t last. It was the Peninsula Python so I’ve heard. Right there in our own little berg. He came out of the trees and into the river if you say you’re not scared you’re really a fibber. Keep out of the dark and stay in the light as the posse suggests if you do what is right. So the python was caught – so you’ve heard by the posse formed in our own little berg.
