Council supports church move
Verona Press editor 
The Verona Common Council doesn’t often get to see a packed house deliver a loud, extended applause.But Monday night alders got to see a lot of that, as more than 70 people clapped vigorously after nearly every positive statement about the planned move of Sugar Riv-er United Methodist Church into an old bowling alley. They applauded loudly nine separate times for three congregation members’ pleas in support of the move and six alders’ declarations of support. They added another for council president Elizabeth Doyle’s joke about them being there to see her debut chairing a council meeting. And they whooped and hollered several more times out in the parking lot – just loudly enough to dis-rupt the next discussion and invite another joke.“We should invite them every week,” Ald. Mac McGilvray (Dist. 1) quipped.Almost as funny was that the council wasn’t even allowed to vote on the issue – it was simply an initial review for a permit to move into the downtown district. But like anyone else, they could count the votes and see the next step in their 10-year-old church’s rapid growth – expanding into the building formerly known as Wildcat Lanes – would not be denied.Key to the jubilant reac-tion was the support of McGilvray and Ald. Evan Touchett (D-4), both of whom voted in favor of an ordinance two years ago that gave the city the ability to block churches and other “indoor institutional” uses from moving downtown. Those two and Alds. Jack Linder (D-2) and Luke Diaz (D-3) all said they had felt some skepticism but were won over by various aspects of the church’s presentation.Diaz liked how the church’s building committee took the time to figure out how much the city would be losing in taxes (between $6,000 and $8,500 annu-ally). That “reasonable”

‘This city has lacked a place for youth to kind of hang out. Because of the size of this place, it has great potential for this kind of mission.’

Hometown Days
Medallion Hunt adds new ‘wrinkle’
Unified Newspaper Group 
As the Verona Area Chamber of Commerce gears up to run its first Hometown Days fes-tival next month, it decided generating some pre-festival excitement would be a good idea.Past board president Steve Rudolph of Comfort Keepers offered up the idea of a “Medallion Hunt” dur-ing the week leading up to
Praising the positive
Behavior program spreading throughout district
Unified Newspaper Group 
When a student has trouble reading, it’s a school’s job to fix the problem. The same goes for math and every other academic subject.And, according to a new initiative spreading through Verona elemen-tary schools and across the country, behavior should be treated the same.“Just like kids learn math, reading, they learn about behavioral expec-tations, too,” said Country View Elementary School counselor Eliza-beth Kraemer. “So we want to have a universal curriculum that everyone’s learning the same expectations and then the understanding is that just like with reading and math, some kids need more repetition, behavioral.”The Positive Behavioral Interven-tions and Supports initiative, which is being fully or partially embraced at every elementary school in the Vero-na Area School District, came from research in the 1980s on how to better intervene with children with behav-ioral disorders. It eventually expanded after the term was included in the reauthoriza-tion of the Americans with Disabili-ties Act in 1997.The program includes multiple tiers, with the first expected to reach around 80 percent of students. Once a school is deemed successful at that level, it can receive Tier 2 training to target the remaining students who may not have responded to the PBIS
‘The discipline is meant to reshape their thinking and help them understand how they could’ve fixed it.’

Morning mishap
Police take a statement from a bus driver Monday morning after he was involved in an accident with a 15-year-old boy on a bicycle. Verona police Lt. Dave Dresser told the Verona Press in an email the student was late for school and crossed against the light while the bus was making a turn. The boy was taken by ambulance to a hospital as a precaution but was uninjured, Dresser wrote. He was also ver-bally warned for his fault in the collision.
