Great Harvest Bread Company Recognizes TCTC Instructor

To help celebrate Catholic Schools week, St. Patrick school in Hubbard let it's students know how much they are appreciated. The entire school was treated to a Phantoms hockey game at the Covelli Center. When the students returned to school in the afternoon, another surprise was waiting for them, they were treated to a movie afternoon. To help them enjoy their movies, they were surprised with popcorn and ice cream! All of the students agreed, We love St. Patrick School!

Shortly after graduation from Hubbard High School, Victor George offered Marcia Denamen free tution to attend hair styling school. George was a well-known hairdresser and friend of Denamen’s family. Little did she realize that her acceptance would become the first step in a distinguished career? Recently, the Great Harvest Bread Company presented Denamen with a $35 gift certificate for professional excellence. Denamen has been married for 37 years to her husband Richard who is an educator in Mahoning County. They have two sons and three grandchildren. In recalling her experiences, Denamen said that at the time, private schools trained their students while allowing them to service their customers. ―We worked at our trade while making money for the school. We also prepared for the State Board examination. It took 10 months of eight hour days to complete all of the requirements for certification.‖ Denamen worked at three different salons before she was hired to teach Cosmetology at the Mahoning County Career & Technical Center. She remained there for seven years before joining the faculty of the TCTC in 1992. Having worked as both a teacher and stylist, Denamen offers a unique perspective on the similarities and differences. ―In a salon, you worry about the customer, in a school, you are concerned with the students. At the TCTC, our kids initially spend more time with the pencil than with the brush and the comb. Most of them are fast learners because they made the decision to enroll in the program.‖

Although working in a salon is more financially lucrative, Denamen believes that nothing can replace the satisfaction of helping students to reach their potential. ―My definition of a great day is when the kids are so excited about their work that they ask friends and teachers to see it. When this occurs, their education has great relevance.‖ One of Denamen’s biggest frustrations is to observe students falling behind because of frequent absence. ―There is so much to learn and styling is a competitive industry. You can’t improve your skills unless you practice them under the supervision of the instructor. We always tell the students, ―In our business, if you don’t work that day, you don’t get paid.‖ In the fall of 2008, the TCTC completed an extensive renovation of the Cosmetology Department. Four state of the art labs were constructed that contain new equipment and the latest in technology. Denamen appreciates the educational advantages for students. ―As an instructor, I am able to present a lesson on the Elmo, have access to a smart board and keep my students totally engaged. Since all four labs are adjacent, the instructors share ideas and are close by for consultation. The facility is amazing.‖ Most teachers grow professionally during the course of their careers. Denamen admits to being task orientated because it is necessary to provide constructive criticism, but she has grown more patient and understanding. She stated, ―Sometimes, a kind word and

a pat on the back are the affirmation that a kid needs to persevere when things are difficult. I have also found that allowing them the input into decisions sparks interest and involvement. They need the opportunity to express themselves creatively.‖ In responding to a question about the qualities necessary to make a living as a hair stylist, Denamen cited manual dexterity with the brush and comb, but pointed to other qualities that are less obvious to the observer. She stated, ―Work ethic, perseverance and interpersonal skills are just as important. This is a people business and you must relate positively to the client.‖ The customer service segment of the program allows students the opportunities to work with people instead of manikins. ―Having a customer sitting in the chair in front of you is as real as it gets. It quickly reinforces the lessons that we have taught them.‖ Cosmetology is a two year program at the TCTC. Denamen has chosen to be the junior instructor because she likes the challenge of teaching a skill from the beginning. During the late spring of their senior year, they travel to Columbus for their state boards. This is a rigorous exam consisting of theoretical and practical components. Students must pass to receive their license to practice in Ohio. Denamen noted, ―The success of TCTC students on the state boards is phenomenal. Each our goal is to have 100% passage rate. We come

If you've had a child play sports, or if you've attended events, like bonfires, little league baseball opening day, all kinds of events, in the last 25 years, you can bet Bill "Santa'" Deislinger, has taken pictures of your kids and you. Santa comes one day a year. Bill takes pictures every event, the school has all week, and on weekends. He does this, not for money, but out of the kindness of his heart. He can be seen at a midget football game, then go to Akron to take pictures of the cross country team. He will take pictures by the hundreds of thousands. He will have action photos, team pictures, families greeting the football team back, after a big win. Bill will be at a young kids wrestling match in the afternoon. Then go to a girls basketball team game at night. I can tell you this, "Bill has spent big money over the years, out of his pocket" . He is one heck of a guy to do that, for the community of Girard. Like I said "He is Santa with a camera" THANK YOU BILL.

An Anglican priest in England told his congregation that shoplifting is acceptable when a person is in desperate need and all other legal sources of help have been exhausted. Is this appropriate and reasonable advice? What is the right thing to do in such a situation? Do extreme or emergency conditions ever justify temporarily setting aside our ethical principles and moral law? These and other related questions will be the basis for a dinner and discussion on Sunday, February 21at the First Presbyterian Church of Girard, 890 Churchill Road, Girard, Ohio. The supper begins at 5:00 and the discussion begins at 6:00. The public is cordially invited to both the dinner and discussion.

very close. I credit my colleagues who teach the seniors for their efforts.‖ In addition to passage rate on the state boards, another important benchmark is the number of graduates who are using their skills in the career field. Denamen says the numbers are impressive. ―Some of our kids are choosing to attend college and are working part time to support the cost of their tuition. We have many graduates employed in the area and they speak highly of the training they received at the TCTC.‖ Alison Walton, a 2009 graduate from Hubbard, was ecstatic to share her feelings about her teacher. ―Mrs. Denamen is an amazing teacher.

Financial Focus
When Evaluating Investments, Look at Value - Not Just Price Most investors pay a great deal of attention to the price of their investments — yesterday‟s price, today‟s price, tomorrow‟s price, next year‟s price and so on. And that‟s understandable, because we always want the prices of our investments to rise. Yet, if you focus too much on prices, you could end up making some costly mistakes. Why? Because price-driven behavior is emotional behavior — and as an investor, you‟re much better off making decisions with your head, not your heart. Suppose, for example, that you‟ve seen a steep decline in the price of one of your investments. After a while, you may feel that you just can‟t take it anymore and you decide to “cut your losses” by selling the investment. Conversely, you may have an investment that has gone up and up — and to grab even bigger gains, you buy more shares. Both these decisions could backfire on you. When you sold the investment whose price had fallen, you might find yourself on the investment “sidelines” if that same investment starts to turn around. And when you throw more money at an investment whose price has skyrocketed, you‟re betting against history — because no investment goes up forever. Furthermore, in both cases, your emotions will have led you to violate one of the guidelines of investing: buy low and sell high. But apart from the tactical errors you may make when you overconcentrate on price movements, you‟re also ignoring another key characteristic of investments — their value. Traditionally, an investment‟s “value” has been largely defined as whether or not it‟s considered “expensive” or “cheap.” That‟s why many investors take a close look at a stock‟s price-to-earnings ratio (P/E). Generally speaking, a high P/E means a stock is more expensive, relative to its earnings, than a stock with a low P/E. Investors may be willing to pay more for the high P/E stocks because they feel these companies will be worth more in the future. But P/E doesn‟t tell the whole story of investment value. Any individual investment may have value to you because it can help you diversify your holdings. And while diversification, by itself, can‟t guarantee a profit or protect against a loss, it can help you reduce the effects of volatility on your portfolio. For instance, if your portfolio is heavy with stocks, the presence of some bonds — even those whose market price has fallen because interest rates have risen — can help reduce the impact of a downturn that primarily affects stocks. Clearly, the value of any investment has several dimensions — any or all of which may be valuable to you as your pursue your goals. So, as you build, maintain and adjust your portfolio over time, keep an eye on the changing prices of your investments — but don‟t overlook their true value.

The common wisdom" when you leave a job or retire, is to roll over the money into an IRA. There are good reasons for this. It's easier to keep track of your retirement accounts if they are stashed in one place, perhaps with an investment advisor available. There are usually more investment options available than in an employer's plan too. If you need to take money out in retirement, it's much easier with an IRA. But, in certain circumstances, it may be advisable to stay with a former employer's 401(k). If you've turned 55 but not yet 59 1/2, it's a lot easier to tap a 401(k) without penalty than to get at your IRA cash. If you continue to work after age 70 1/2, you can postpone taking distributions from a 401(k)-but not from. an IRA. If the plan is large and well run, investment expenses may be lower than in an IRA. And if your plan includes a large amount of company stock there may be tax consequences in rolling it over. Talk over your retirement-fund options with the expert tax advisors at:

It sure is cool to see one of my dads favorite athletes coaching. Robin Durkin Girard’s JV coach was always on the top of my dads interview list after a game, because she played the game one way "ALL OUT". She was on some great teams while playing at Girard. Robins freshmen team went 23-3. She said Lisa Pozeka was the best player she played with. Coach Saxon did really a great job with this group of girls. Robin coached 10 years ago, with the junior high. And has come back, to help out with coach Saxon, being the new JV coach. But she has a unique opportunity, to coach her daughter Linsay. Her husband Bill was a great all around athlete, who I’m sure, Is giving her some support. Robin is proud, and happy, to be back on the hardwood at GHS. She said "It's different these days, the sports just overlap each other. The kids aren't as dedicated as they could be. They are involved in a lot". She likes this group of girls. Robin would like the girls to lift in the summer, to get stronger and quicker. She is one of those people, you don't get away from. Great Job Robin. The boys basketball team is playing hard night in and night out. They just don't have the size

Hubbard Township Board of Trustees: Meeting of February 8, 2010
Delay in Tax Holiday: The Trumbull County Auditor has informed the Hubbard Township Fiscal Officer that there is going to be a delay in the Tax Holiday for Lighting Districts that the Trustees passed in early January 2010. The delay will set the holiday, or noncollection, to the second half tax duplicate due in 2011. The Auditor informed the Township that granting such tax holidays can be accomplished in whole year periods only so the tax break will come a little later than originally planned. Housing Demolitions: The Township is proceeding with the Federal Housing demolition grant with the addition of another two units. 6505 Rachellen and 2211 Wick Campbell Rd are now on the demolition list for round two of the program. The Township is also proceeding with local agreements on upgrading other properties on the demo list. However, until such time the agreements are completed, the ―unfit‖ structures may still be torn down. Eastgate Appointment: Hubbard Township Trustee Fred Hanley was elected to the Eastgate Regional Council of Governments, Finance Executive Committee and the General Policy Board. Hanley has been both Chairman and Vice Chairman and has served the Citizens Advisory Council since 1978. Township Receives Aggregation Grant: The Trumbull County Commissioners have informed the Township Trustees that they will share a First Energy Aggregation Grant with Hubbard Township. Hubbard Township’s share of the Aggregation Grant will be in excess of $87,000 and is from the savings township residents received by signing with First Energy for their electric power. Over 3,000 township households signed on with First Energy through the County Aggregation Plan and have saved thousands of dollars on their power use. The new plan through the Trumbull County Commissioner’s Electric Aggregation Plan will save an additional 6% this year by using First Energy. The Trumbull County Commissioners Natural Gas Aggregation Plan is also providing savings for those citizens that have signed on to the county plan. Hubbard Township is being urged to use the grant for green technology projects. Township Property Maintenance Committee: Zoning Administrator John Pieton has informed the Trustees that the Property Maintenance Committee has held its first meeting and is proceeding with organizational tasks. The committee will serve as a precursor to the official formulation of a property maintenance policy to be incorporated into the Hubbard Township Zoning Resolution for residential properties. If you wish to participate or attend committee meetings, please contact Mr. Pieton at 330-5342161 daily until noon for additional details. Additional Stimulus Funds through Eastgate: The Township has been informed by Eastgate Regional Council of Governments that 9.3 million dollars is being made available for competitive community projects under the President’s Stimulus Program for 2010. The Township has taken advantage of the past grant program with two awards in 2009. The Township is now formulating a submission for this most recent round of applications in 2010/2011, and will be for road and right of way improvements. Special Meeting: The Hubbard Township Trustees will meet for a work session on March 3, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at the Township Administration Building, 2600 Elmwood Drive. This special meeting/workshop will be to establish appropriations for all township departments for fiscal year 2010 based upon projections from the County Auditor. Trustees Zoning Hearing: The Hubbard Township Trustees will meet in Special Session on March 10, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at the Township Administration Building, 2600 Elmwood Drive, for the purpose of a Public Hearing on Zoning Case #09002. This case contains administrative and language changes to the Hubbard Township Zoning Resolution and does not involve any property zone classification changes. Additional Grant Funding Requests: With the latest efforts at stimulating the economy, the Township is preparing applications for grant and match funding from several governmental sources to address several township projects. Currently, the Township is processing applications for an additional tornado/disaster warning siren for the Harding Park-eastern township region. Funding is also being sought for a records storage facility, a salt storage dome for the Township Road Department and a police vehicle storage building. Grant awards are predicated on points awarded for projects, and with funding cuts by the State, competition will be tough. New Police Vehicle: Chief Todd Coonce has reported that the Township Police Department has received an additional Ford 4x4 Explorer. The 2010 Ford, built in Louisville, Kentucky, will make the third 4X4 vehicle for the department and will serve the officers well, especially during major snow events such as the one that we are experiencing now.

Elementary School must have all required documentation for placement in a class for the 2010-2011 School Year. Children need not be present for the Registration. A Kindergarten Screening Evaluation and Visitation of Kindergarten Classrooms will be scheduled during registration. That sounds like a lot but it is necessary paperwork that schools have to have now for all children not only those that are entering but also for those currently in attendance. The Prospect Principal, Mrs. Debra Gratz, the staff, administrators, and teachers want to encourage new students and are happy to answer any questions parents or guardians may have. Call the school for more information at 330545-3854 and they will be happy to help in any way. Don't wait until the end of summer if you are considering entering your child in school. It is important that you do so now so that they can be entered on time and have a positive beginning of their school years. Kindergarten visitation is held now so that they may visit a kindergarten class with current students to see what they are doing in their classrooms and to meet the kindergarten teachers. Prospect Elementary School has won many awards for their care, encouragement, and concern for the success of their students and for creating a positive atmosphere for learning. Call or stop in for information about beginning school for your child in Kindergarten at Prospect Elementary School. The PTO at Prospect Elementary School had to cancel their February Meeting due to weather conditions. There will be a meeting on the first Tuesday in March at the school cafeteria. Call the school office for the exact time. Officers for the new school year will soon be selected for both Prospect Elementary School and Girard Intermediate School. If you are a parent or grandparent, consider being an officer or committee person. They need your help. The fundraiser going on right now is Daffin's Easter Candy. There is a brochure in the school office for viewing or contact any Elementary School child for orders. They will be here in time for Easter and it will help the PTO fund activities for all the children to enjoy. A Spring Party and the End of the Year Festivities will be planned as well as other events from now until the end of the year which enhance the educational experience for the student and activities which include the entire family which are held in the cafeteria in the Spring.

Tickets will be sold at the door. Adults will be $5.00, Students and Senior Citizens will be $4.00. Don't miss this delightful show filled with mystery, enchantment, and adventure for all ages. Girard High School has been ranked as one of the best High Schools in the USA. This was a three step process. The first two steps ensured that the schools winning this designation serve all their students well, using state proficiency standards as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare student~ for college-level work. GHS received the bronze medal this year. Girard staff, students, and administrators hope to win the gold medal next year. They feel that Girard students deserve a gold medal effort every day not only for their class work but for their service to school and community as well as their dedication to the many activities they participate in throughout the school year. Hats off to all for the achievement of this National Recognition. Wendy Shone who was in a recent car accident in this bad weather on Belmont A venue is doing better and is back at school. She is in her last semester at Youngstown State University working towards her degree in nursing. She is still feeling the effects of the car accident which totaled her car with a head on collision. Good luck to Wendy as she finishes her degree and we are all glad you are feeling better. Be careful out there. Wendy is the daughter of Beverly Young a retired Girard Teacher. Tom Archer retired last May from Girard Junior High after over thirty five years in the- Girard City School System as a Science Teacher, Physical Education and Health Teacher, a Middle School Principal, and Track and Field Coach to mention just a few of his many tasks over those years. His wife Jean has been battling cancer these past few months. All three of their children, Josh, Emily, and Sarah, graduated from Girard High School and were not only great students but great people like their parents. Cards and notes of encouragement would surely be appreciated. Pete Gabriel and wife Julie were out with friends for Valentine's Day after church to enjoy a dinner together. Pete is a retired history teacher and coach from Girard High School. Pete was a past president of the Girard Education Association and became an expert on the health insurance for the teacher's association helping many understand the process and paperwork involved. Pete had on a bright red shirt for the day and also a "special tie" for the day as he was always noted for in his classroom. The tie had a picture of King Kong on it with the movie background. The first Christmas after Pete retired, all the teachers in Girard High School found a tie that had belonged to Pete in their mailboxes as a special "Christmas Remembrance" with a note attached for the holidays. Each teacher wore their tie for the day and a picture that ended up in the yearbook. It was a great Christmas gift for all of us with great fun attached to it as we all fondly remembered the friendship we all shared with Pete and his leadership of the teacher's association. His mother-in-law is 94 years old and is still at Autumn Hill's Care Center. Pete would stop in and see my mother and me when he was able to take a few moments. His words were always encouraging during such a tough time. Valentine's Day is over and March will soon be here with better weather I hope. My mother Jane loved Spring and it can't get here soon enough. Stay warm by the fire. Better days are ahead.

In memory of Jane A. Harris By SueEllen Harris-Davis
Frisky squirrels in the yard seem undaunted By winter's chilling blast, A treasured bit from a hidden cache, Seems to be all they ask.

Some days this week it was only the squirrels that dared to venture out into the yard clinging to tree branches which were already filled with heavy amounts of snow. They actually helped to shake off some of winter's white "gift" as some would call it when the landscape is newly blanketed with the wonder of a gently falling snow, continuously falling snow, never-ending snow. The beauty of the yard gives way it seems after the first good blast of winter to what most call "cabin fever." Shutting in those who would rather be cozy by the fireside than to venture out in deep snow beyond their highest boot tops is Mother Nature's way of demanding that some take a rest for a while to take in the beauty of the seasons. As long as the white wonderland can be viewed from indoors, some can appreciate the season's picturesque change in our yards. The squirrels have helped in knocking off the snow from the pine trees in our yard. Now if we can only train them to do something about the long ice cycles attached to the house their job might be complete. Snow has been the topic of most news broadcasts and the inconvenience of closing and canceling many activities including schools often is a frustration to many. The Weather Channel took time this week to show home videos of people having fun in the snow especially children and their families as many who have grown up in the South have never seen snow before. We often take the change in the seasons here in Ohio for granted and are oft reminded that not everybody has to deal with slippery roads and rescheduled events around the country. My cousins David and Pam Patterson moved to the Carolinas to have warmer winters with their grandchildren and son David and his wife relocated their to find a job. They are probably some of the only people on their streets to know how to drive in the snow there. The news commentators said that every state in the union except Hawaii had snow this week which was a very unique circumstance. In many places in our town of Girard it is still difficult to get around. As soon as the snow is cleared in streets and driveways, it seems to snow just enough to cover things again and add to the already large piles of snow and ice. Under the firmly packed snow is often a layer of ice that has long been forgotten when the first snow came down. It's still there. Many of us unfortunately have found it when walking to businesses or even to work. I'd like to think that this weather will change soon but I am reminded that my daughter Heidi was born on April 13th and when we took her home on the 18th, it was in a blizzard and had to bundle her up in blankets because of the cold snowy weather. Spring will return and those "snow birds" who made their way early to Florida or other parts South are sorry now they didn't take along a few of their winter clothes from home. Their only consolation is that it probably melts faster and they, being from the frozen North, at least know how to drive in the white stuff. Enjoy a warm fire, a hot cup of cocoa, and watch the Winter Olympics. They have warm temperatures and rain. Competition is the catalyst that propels the nation into success in schools, sports, and business ventures as well. Though we often don't like to admit it, we all must deal with the "Competitive Spirit of America" whether positive or negative in its influence. We see it everyday in classrooms, work places, and even in social situations with organizations all vying for funding on different levels in grants, from individuals, and other sources to perpetuate the existence of what someone feels is a worthwhile organization or cause. If you don't watch the Winter Olympics and are not particularly a sports fan, you should at least take time to listen to the stories behind some of the athletes competing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The struggles both physically, emotionally, and mentally that some have had to endure and yet continue their quest for success at their sport is truly amazing. Most seem to have had adversity which had to be overcome and many have had to face overwhelming tragedy in their lives with unexpected illness, injury, or death of a beloved family member. Yet these young people have overcome these trials and gone above and beyond what anyone could expect of them to succeed. Many of these young athletes are truly and inspiration to us all in what they strive to achieve and what they have struggled to overcome. Take time in these next two weeks to view some of the events in the Winter Olympics and pay special attention to the stories of determination, the unwillingness to accept defeat at any level. Some of these young athletes exemplify the ability of the human spirit to rise above any adversity that life deals to them. Enjoy these moments of triumph in these young Olympians remembering that they represent us in so many important ways. The Girard Boys Basketball Team is soon to go into Tournament. The season's final Home game on the regular season calendar is on Tuesday, February 16th, weather permitting. The Girard High School Gymnasium is the site of the game and parking lots should be cleared in time for the JV Game which begins at 6 p.m. The Varsity Boys Game will begin at approximately 7 p.m. The game will be against Champion. The final game of the season will be Away at LaBrae on Friday, February 19th. The Girard Girls Basketball Final Regular Season Game is scheduled Away at Struthers on Wednesday, February 17th. The game will begin at 6 p.m. with the JV Girls Game and the Varsity will begin at approximately 7 p.m. there. Good luck to all the basketball teams at all grade levels as they begin Tournament play. There will be an Early Dismissal of classes from kindergarten through the 12th grade on Wednesday, February 17th, for a teacher's in service meeting scheduled throughout the Girard City School District. Usually these meetings are mandated by the State of Ohio and required certain instruction for teachers. Interim Reports are due on February 19th but may have to be changed because of the weather conditions and the necessary days off. Road conditions that are safe for students are the key factor in closing schools throughout the area. Valentine's Day card exchange and parties in the Elementary Classrooms at Prospect will have to be rescheduled for this week sometime since the Valentine Day Parties were to be held last Wednesday when school was called off because of weather conditions. Parents and students will be notified by the school as to when they will be held. Valentine's Day is often a well remembered time for family and friends. It has been expanded for more than remembering "Sweethearts" only which is still a great reason for observing the day. Expressing love to friends and family members has also become a part of the Valentine's Day Traditions. Flower shops, Candy shops, and Gift shops were busy in town even on Sunday this year since February 14th fell on Sunday, stores remained open for those last minute shoppers who wanted to find something special for a loved one. Restaurants also had "deals" on "meals" to entice couples to eat out at a nice place for the day and enjoy a time together away from the kitchen and household chores. The

minister of the Girard First United Methodist Church, Rev. Betsy Schenk, in her children's sermon made sure that all listeners left with a Valentine Card from her and a red candy heart sucker. Of course the "kids" in the Adult Choir all got one from her too. My dad Edgar made Valentine's Day fun. He never forgot to bring something special home for an his "girls" as he would call us. Usually my mother Jane got something extra special from him such as a large fancy decorated box of candy, or Channel NO.5 perfume, or a piece of jewelry like a heart she could wear when they would go out to special dinners in town. Mrs. 0', my grandmother Grace as he would call her, would get a fancy handkerchief or scarf, red of course, and I would get a special box of chocolates all decorated with fancy ribbons. My dad would usually get a red tie from us or a new shirt and my grandmother would fix his favorite dinner and a special pie for dessert. We made every special day throughout the year one to celebrate as a family. We always had surprises we would share and planned each time with something fun to remember. Those days were always ones to look forward to just by being able to celebrate them together. There were a number of specialty stores in downtown Girard to shop. Charles Shops had men's and women's clothing and always had a variety of gifts that were one of a kind items. They even gift wrapped them while you waited and helped you pick something out that fit they occasion. They new all their customers personally and would be able to pick the correct sizes too. Beautiful ladies scarves came in special boxes as well as being gift-wrapped for the day. Jewelry items on the women's side and fancy handkerchiefs in boxes too with red ribbon tied around them were a great gift of those times. My grandmother Grace never left the house to go to church, Circle, or Unit without one of those handkerchiefs tucked under her watchband in a color to match her outfit. Candy at Rodney Ann's was a stop especially for Valentine's Day and the fancy boxes with an assortment of chocolate delicacies was something you wouldn't want to miss. There were a number of other places in the downtown area of Girard that provided special greeting cards, small stuffed animals, dolls, and various other gift items that anyone in the family would enjoy. Shoe stores were another stop that shoppers enjoyed with two such places on the downtown streets. If they didn't have your size, they would make an effort to order them in quickly and pick up would be in just a few days. Ben Franklin's Five and Ten Cent Store was on Liberty Street in the downtown Girard area and the store was filled with many items you couldn't find anywhere else. The Girard Hardware was equal to none other in the area in its service and variety of hard- to-find parts and equipment for any type of job at home or in a business. The downtown of Girard is growing with small new businesses. Several gift shops such as Daffin's Candies, Karen's Joy, Vintage, and More, Peggy 11agill-Celedonia's Gift Shop, and several others that are trying to make Girard a place for their business have opened on Liberty Street and State Street. Someone recently reminded me that in front of what is now the Chase Bank there used to be a system of pipes that would melt the snow from the sidewalk and we reminisced about watching the steam rise as the water evaporated. Shops were busy even on Sunday this year downtown thanks to shoppers choosing to spend their time locally looking for gifts. Their patronage is appreciated by local businesses who are trying to stay open and be a part of Girard. Good food is also part of the atmosphere located in downtown Girard and a stroll down Liberty Street in the business area will give a variety of food places to visit from morning 'til night. Up and down State Street is a another variety of food establishments serving all types of simple to complete meal dining from breakfast hours until late at night. These places employ Girard people and as a community we need to do as much as possible to promote these eating places among friends and family so they stay open. Many are owned and operated by local Girard residents who like to stay in Girard both to live and work here. Service and menus are excellent in all of these places also. Christina Costello has been made a manager of the Dunkin Donuts on Salt Springs Road. She is a graduate of Girard High School and also a graduate of Youngstown State University. Many employees there are from Girard. Her brother Joe Costello is also a graduate of GHS and a college graduate with ajob location in the Carolina's. It is nice to see hometown people being promoted to positions within their workplaces. Congratulations. Christina was an outstanding student at Girard and was a Beta Club President as well as being involved in many other organizations at GHS. Her leadership skills, knowledge, and her ability to work with others positively will help her succeed in all that she chooses to do. Christina's mom Linda Costello is part of the staff of Prospect Elementary School. Happy Birthday to Girard Intermediate School Teacher Kelly (Arp) Hontula who celebrated on February 10th. Her husband John Hontula is employed at Mineral Ridge, Weathersfield Township Schools, as a school nurse. Best Wishes as you celebrate. Congratulations to Travis and Andrea Birch on the birth of Hailey Elizabeth Birch, their new daughter. She is also the granddaughter of Melanie and Gus Birch. Hailey was born on February 6th. On February 22nd, the Red Cross will hold the Girard Blood Drive at the Girard First United Methodist Church in Fellowship Hall from 1 to 6 p.m. Donors may enter from the Main Street Entrance across from the Girard City Building. The church is located on Market Street in Girard one block west of State Street across from the Girard Post Office. Donors are really needed as blood supplies are always row this time of year.

Hubbard resident to receive Patrol’s Certificate of Recognition of heroic actions
A Hubbard man was honored today for his heroic actions following a one vehicle crash on January 8, 2010, on Salt-Springs Road, in WeathersfieldTownship in TrumbullCounty. James M. Noyes was presented with a Certificate of Recognition today by Lt. Joseph Dragovich, Commander of the Patrol’s Warren Post, for his selfless actions to assist a crash victim. On January 8, Mr. Noyes witnessed a vehicle hit the guardrail and travel down a steep snow-covered embankment where it overturned into a creek. Without hesitation or regard for his own personal safety, Mr. Noyes descended the embankment and entered the frigid water. The driver of the partially submerged vehicle was unable to exit his vehicle on his own, so Mr. Noyes pulled the driver out and helped him to safety. Mr. Noyes then provided aid and comfort, including his own coat and shirt to help the victim stay warm, until emergency personnel arrived on the scene.

Sharon Regional’s Breast Care Center earns Breast Imaging Center of Excellence Award
The American College of Radiology (ACR) has awarded Sharon Regional Health System’s Breast Care Center designation as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation. The Center of Excellence recognition is only awarded to facilities that have earned accreditation in all of the ACR’s breast imaging accreditation modules, including mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound breast biopsy). The Breast Center is located within Sharon Regional’s Diagnostic and Imaging Center at 2435 Garden Way in Hermitage. Betty Shindel, M.D., a board certified radiologist and fellowship trained breast imaging specialist, stated the Center of Excellence recognition is further evidence of the quality of services provided at the Breast Care Center. ―Here at Sharon Regional, in addition to the services recently accredited, we’re offering women many options that aren’t available at other centers, including the Shenango Valley’s only digital mammography for superior imaging results, breast MRI and MRI guided breast biopsies, and much more, all in the same location,‖ Dr. Shindel said. ―We’re confident that our Breast Care Center offers our patients an unparalleled level of breast services and follow-up care,‖ Dr. Shindel concluded. Sharon Regional’s Breast Care Center also offers mammography with the option for same day results, biopsies, and Saturday mammography appointments. Direct consults are available for medical and radiation oncology, onsite breast surgeons, genetic evaluation and counseling, reconstructive surgery, and rehabilitation services. An additional highlight of the Center is a dedicated breast care nurse navigator, certified in both breast imaging and cancer care, who provides women with personalized education and support throughout the biopsy, surgical intervention, and treatment process. In addition to the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence certification, the Breast Care Center continues to maintain accreditation through the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA).

Students receiving a 2 or excellent rating included; the Liberty Percussion Trio consisting of Suraj Lakshimarasimhan, Phil Tomko, and Dominic Leone. Phil Tomko performing a class B snare drum solo, Breana Comer performing a class B marimba solo, and Paul Nicol on a class B Euphonium Solo. Students reviving a 1 or superior rating included; Brett Baker performing a class A trumpet solo, Dominic Leone on a class A snare drum solo, Alyssa Schor performing a class B clarinet solo and a class A violin solo.

Township Trustee Meeting

Joseph Spangler. This young man is a spider expert. He will astound you with his knowledge and how much he wants to share it with you.

A typical set up for the showing of spiders.

Ernie Amabile, Turner and Amani Hrabowy discuss spiders.

Gentleman addressing the Trustees about the upcoming Campfire Street Rodders weekend show.
The regular meeting of the township Trustees was held on Feb. 8. It was busy with much on the agenda. The trustees rescinded the raises they had given to the administrators. They passed the usual money back and forth. They will be seeking proposals for IT Service and for fuel. A new resolution was passed making it more difficult to harvest timber in the Township. Timber has been an ongoing problem for residents. The township does not have much authority to deal with it but it continues to try. Motion for first reading for a 2 mil, 5 year levy to be placed on the ballot for Capital Improvements. Park reservations are being taken now. Better get in early. The Easter Bunny is scheduled to visit the township on Mar. 27 at the Admin. Bldg. Mark your calendars now. This is a great event for the kids. There will be a Senior Watch Meeting on Mar. 31. More details will follow. A gentleman from the Campfire Street Rodders, a local car club asked for and was given permission to use Churchill Park over the Memorial Day weekend-Friday-Saturday and Sunday. Sounds like a great family event. A letter was read from Gretchen Reed thanking all involved for the wonderful outpouring of charity regarding the Blott Needy Kids Project. Once again Liberty responded for its own. $267 was received for the cans collected to be used for Liberty In Bloom.

Ashlyn Parks enjoys the Fest also.

Death Notices
Below are Death Notices that are published free of charge. Full Obituaries are printed for a fee. Consult your funeral director for details.

Ronald F. Bennett, 85
Brookfield. Date of death, Sunday February 14, 2010. Arrangements are entrusted to the Kelley-Robb Funeral Home.

Weekly Bible Verse “[Love one another] This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.”- 1 John 3:11



With fear and love
―And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require from you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the Lord’s commandments and His statutes which I am commanding you today for your good‖ (Deut. 10:12-13)? Fear and love is an odd combination, yet God places these two motivating forces side by side in this passage. How can these coexist? One should cancel out the other, right? Jesus says His disciples will mourn (Matt. 5:4), but that does not cancel out the joy Paul says Christians should have (Phil. 3:1)? Does God’s love negate the reality of hell? Does God’s kindness ignore His severity (Rom. 11:22)? No. In each case these ideas must be understood as the writer intends, and to whom he intends. Those who mourn for their sins will also rejoice because of the salvation found in Christ. God is sever to those who fell and turned away from following Him, but God is kind to those who continue in the faith. When John writes, ―There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love‖ (1 John 4:18), he is not retracting the Deuteromic idea of serving God with both fear and love. John’s idea of fear is different than Moses’. John deals with fear that is related to punishment. An example of this fear is seen in Adam and Eve. Adam says to God, ―I heard the sound of Thee in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself‖ (Gen. 3:10). Adam was now ashamed of his nakedness, and afraid because of his guilt. Christians need not be ashamed. Their sins are forgiven. God encourages them to ―draw near with confidence to the throne of grace‖ (Heb. 4:16). Serving God with fear and love is not contradictory, but complimentary. Let me sugest three ideas that are born from an attitude of fear and love. Obedience is the first. Throughout the book of Deuteronomy fear is coupled with obedience (Deut. 5:29; 6:2; 6:24; 8:6; 10:12; 13:4; 17:19; 28:58; 31:12). Notice the way Moses expresses this in our text, ―fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways‖ (Deut. 10:12). What way of the Lord was Israel not obligated to walk in? When God stayed Abraham’s hand from killing Isaac God said, ―Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me‖ (Gen. 22:12). Here again fear is connected to obedience. Love however, is also so connected. Jesus said, If you love Me, you will keep My commandments‖ (John 14:15). ―He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me‖ (John 14:21).

LAW CAPSULES RESPA RULE CHANGES The Department of Housing and Urban Development changes to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) went into full effect on January 1, 2010. The rule change has far reaching implications for consumer mortgage lending. The new Good Faith Estimate (GFE) form that the lender must provide to the borrower is intended by HUD to encourage and make it easier for the borrower to shop for loans. HUD believes the new rule will restore consumer confidence at this critical time in the housing finance markets. For your full service legal needs, call

Philippians 4:4—Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Choose a positive attitude first thing in the morning! There are only two kinds of attitudes: good ones and bad ones. Profound, eh? So is a marvelous poem my mother taught me when I was a child. I’ve never forgotten it. It goes like this: Two men looked out prison bars: One saw mud, the other stars. Two men in exactly the same circumstances made opposite choices that determined their capacity to be happy. Which choice would you have made? Why not choose a positive attitude first thing in the morning, before these things even have a chance to go wrong? King David said, ―This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it‖ (Psalm 118:24). That choice, when you get up in the morning, will set the mood for your whole day. Our attitudes don’t have to be determined by our circumstances. I once stood by the bedside of a beautiful and courageous seventeen-year-old girl who was dying of cancer. I can stand by the deathbed of an adult who has lived a full, rich life and accept that all good things must end. But when I stand beside a dying child, I have to fight tears. Rosie read my thoughts perfectly. Clutching her white Bible in her frail hands, she looked me straight in the eye and said, ―Pastor, I know I’m dying. But isn’t this a beautiful day? Every day is a gift from God.‖ I felt ashamed of the petty circumstances I so often let control my attitude toward life. This teenage champion of courage didn’t let the worst of circumstances control her attitude.

North Carolinian Faces PLS"
Pat Croom reads this column in the New Bern (NC) Sun Journal. Not long ago, like so many others, she responded to my request asking readers to send in their personal stories about disability. Due to her disability, Pat was unable to speak for a telephone interview. So with her permission, I have included here an edited version of her email. She wrote: ―I just read your column on disabilities and wanted to thank you for allowing us to share how we live with a disability. I was diagnosed with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) in June 2000. This is a rare neurological disorder. My husband and I love to dance. Around 1995, I found myself sitting more than dancing because of cramps in my lower legs. Little did I know this was an early PLS symptom. In 1998, I began falling due to poor balance and had to use a cane. I started going from doctor to doctor to find out what was wrong. When I received my diagnosis, my sister insisted we move from New Bern to Garner to be near her and her children. She built us an (accessible) home next door to her. After 38 years in New Bern, we moved in 2001. Now I use a wheelchair. I still have some use of my hands. My voice is gone and I use a [special device] to communicate. I've never asked God why and I'm not bitter. The hardest thing is dealing with how other people treat me. I've lost friends that were once like family. I try to remain positive and thank God every day for my family and church. My devoted husband of almost 50 years makes it possible for me to remain home. PLS has changed my appearance. My facial expressions have become exaggerated and I've gained weight. But life is good. I'm part of an online support group, PLS Friends. PLS is often confused with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). PLS usually progresses slower than ALS. Mine has progressed fairly fast and affects my legs, arms, speech, and swallowing. I sometimes think I have ALS, but that really doesn't matter. I refuse to go through test after test (and some are painful) to find out. I'd rather enjoy life than dwell on my disability. So I take one day at a time and do what I can. Thanks for letting me share my story.‖ Contact danieljvance.com [All American Foods and Palmer Bus Service made this column possible.]

Where the Rubber meets the Road
Today, my mind is full of questions and greatly troubles because I can not come up with any logical answers. An elderly lady is murdered in broad daylight in a church parking lot by a self-confessed 18 year old. She was a victim of a thoughtless, hideous crime. One minute she is in a house of worship and the next, she is a statistic. Her life snuffed out in a senseless shooting. Have we, unknowingly, made crime too appealing? There was time when everyone knew that “Crime does not pay”. This isn’t true today. Crime does pay and in many ways. Trials and sentencing stretch out over weeks and months. We all know the criminal is determined as innocent until proven guilty. But in the waiting days and/or months they are housed and fed; probably living better than before incarceration. Case in point: the trial of the criminal who spent 18 years living housed, fed and given medical care when needed; at the expense of the tax payer. His victim suffered a horrifying death but he is living in comfortably in a warm jail. Somewhere along the way, justice has been misconstrued. Read the papers, follow the stories, they are in the newspapers everyday. In some countries, if you steal-your hand is cut off. I know this sounds very uncivilized but how civilized is a judicial system that protects the through “loop holes” etc. to the extent we do today. Has political correctness just gone to far? You know, I’m just a common ordinary fella who likes western movies. I always notice when a killer is caught, justice is swift. He goes to jail followed with days of trial. If found guilty, he is sentenced to face the gallows, yes justice is swift. If criminals faced a more swift justice today, perhaps our citizens could walk safer streets and parking lots would be safe for us. Think about it!

Over 300 Openings for Ohio Job Seekers Age 55 and Older New grant enables expansion of training program
While many programs are cutting back on services, Senior Employment Centers throughout Ohio have added 362 openings for older workers to participate in a training program thanks to recent grants awarded by the US Department of Labor and the Ohio Department of Aging. The openings come at a good time, when many older adults are seeking ways to gain the training necessary to secure a job in today’s changing marketplace. The Senior Employment Center, a division of Mature Services, Inc., operates the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), which provides paid part-time work experience and paid training to assist mature workers (age 55 and older) to re-enter the job market. Individuals receive minimum wage while training and must meet federal eligibility guidelines. People currently collecting unemployment can also qualify for the program. As SCSEP participants gain new skills and find permanent jobs in the private sector, new opportunities are created for others to participate and benefit from the program. According to Paul Magnus, Vice-President of Workforce Development, ―This is the perfect program for mature workers, because it provides them with an income while they are training for a new career. Not only that but, since their training assignments are with local non-profits and government agencies, they are making it possible for those programs to expand services to the community at a time when the need is greatest.‖ The Senior Employment Center currently has ten offices serving forty-one counties, and plans are in place to open four more offices by Spring. Program participants receive minimum wage during their training assignments, and ―As participants transition from the community service to the private sector, their wages may increase significantly,‖ said Justyn Jaymes, Project Director of the Akron office, ―and they continue to be contributing members of their community.‖ Older workers are trained for a variety of positions in fields such as accounting, administrative assistant, hospitality, data entry, driver, file clerk, customer service, home health aide, janitorial and maintenance services, receptionist, and many more. To qualify for the program, a person must be at least 55 years old, have limited income, live in Summit county, and be interested to learn new skills and become self sufficient. For more information, call 330-762-8666 ext. 176 or toll free 1-800-554-5335 or visit our website at www.matureservices.org and click on the Senior Employment Center tab. Mature Services, Inc. is an equal opportunity employer and service provider.

Laura on Life
When we lived in the North, snow was a very common occurrence in the winter. We participated in many of the winter sports. I owned a pair of ice skates and skis. We had toboggans, sleds and snow shovels just sitting in the garage waiting to be used… and they were… often. Since we have moved to a more temperate climate, snow is rarer. So rare, in fact, that when it happens, we are dismally unprepared for it. We do have a box of mittens and gloves that we have collected over the years, but it’s a minor miracle to find a matching pair. We also have some sno-tubes that we bought when we took a trip to the mountains a couple winters ago. A snow shovel is something we only think of after we’re snowed-in. When the snow melts, we know we won’t need one for another year or two. So, no, we don’t have a snow shovel. This was our snow-readiness status when the snow fell last weekend. We heard the forecast, but we had had forecasts for snow three times this winter and it had never happened. We made sure our grill had propane in case we lost power and needed to cook something. We made sure there was wood for the fireplace. My husband actually looks forward to power outages. It’s like a camping trip for him. We even became part of the hoard of shoppers that go through the motions of buying the usual stock-ups: milk, bread, water, and canned goods. Then we waited to see if the weatherman was right this time. Well, this time he was right. We still had no shovel, but the kids took the sno-tubes out to play and promptly put holes in all three of them. Then they came up with some very creative alternatives for getting from point A (top of the hill) to point B (bottom of the hill) on an icy surface. My daughter tried using the deflated sno-tubes, but realized very quickly that throwing herself onto an inflated sno-tube was very different than throwing herself onto a deflated sno-tube. Plus, it didn’t go far either. The eight-year old thought the top of his Lego box would do the trick, but the hand-me-down boots he was wearing were still too big and didn’t fit in the lid at the same time his tushie was occupying it. The thirteen-year old decided his skim board for the beach would work just as well on snow. It slid just fine. Unfortunately, it was just as slippery on the top as it was on the bottom. His rubber rain boots didn’t have a lick of traction on the waxed wood. He tried putting masking tape on the top for traction, but when the masking tape peeled up and wrapped around his boots, he merely succeeded in planting his face in the snow-covered pavement. My daughter had the brilliant idea of using a large piece of cardboard. It tore down the hill like a bat out of hell, until it hit a rough spot. Then it stopped dead while my daughter continued on down the hill on her rather fast-moving behind. They tried an old plastic For Sale sign that was in the garage with pretty much the same results. They even stuffed a pillow into a large plastic trash bag and rode it down the hill. I had to put a stop to that, though, because I only have so many pillows and I saw what they did to the sno-tubes. All in all, I considered our snow day a triumph because, 1. We didn’t lose power and 2. My kids played outside nearly all day and they also used some of their untapped creative juices to find a way to utilize the rare snowfall for fun. Who says snow days have to be unproductive?

With the start of 2010 racing season some six weeks away, Mercer Raceway Park is excited to once again present an actionpacked slate of special race events to blend in with its ―Saturday Night Live‖ weekly program and family entertainment. Nine special race events with no less than six sanctioning bodies are part of the 59th anniversary season. The 2010 season opener will take place on Saturday, March 27. The popular Super Late Models will highlight the ―Chiller Thriller‖ in a UFo Race Championship event for the first time ever at The Park. A healthy $2,500 will be awaiting the winner of the ―Mach 41,‖ which will be the first major Late Model event in the Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and New York Region. Also competing will be the United E-Mod Series and open Stock Cars for a cool $1,000 to-win each plus the Mini Stocks! The event will carry an April 3 rain date. Summer will be in full force when the ground-pounding BigBlock Modifieds come to town in a BRP Tour event on Saturday, June 19 to take on Mercer’s highly-competitive 358 Small-Block Modifieds. These clashes have really turned into a ―me‖ vs. ―them‖ rivalry that’s been great for the fans. This ―Smackdown‖ event will also be headlined by the Sprint Cars for $1,500 to-win. We’ll celebrate Independence Day in fine fashion with the season’s richest race event on Saturday, July 3. The FASTRAK ―Summer Nationals‖ will be the Northeast’s most prestigious FASTRAK event ever with $6,000 on the line! A field of 40+ cars is expected for this National event. Sprint Car fans won’t want to miss this one either as the winged 410s will compete in twin features! Four weeks later we close out the month of July with an interesting event that’ll find open wheel fans licking their chops. The first of two DIRTcar Sprint Challenge Series events will lead the way on Saturday, July 31 for the $2,000 to-win ―Sprint Slug-Out,‖ which is part of this 10-event regional point series for the 410s. It’ll also be the highly-anticipated return of the ARDC Midgets at The Park for the first time in five seasons! ARDC has really grown in recent years and a strong field of wingless competitors is expected. The Modifieds will make this a true open wheel fans’ delight! The Big-Block Modifieds will be back again on Saturday, August 14 for the region’s longest-running memorial event- the Bill Emig Memorial. With no other Modified races in the region, a top notch field will pay tribute to the legacy of current track owner, Vicki Emig’s father. Both the Modifieds and Sprint Cars will be racing for $1,500 to-win each and the FASTRAK Late Models will join in on the excitement. The summer concludes on Saturday, August 28 with a new event as the Auto Racers for Kids Charities Sprint Series will make a stop at The Park featuring all of the top regional racers for $3,000 to-win. All proceeds will go to this great benefit, which has taken place at Lake Erie Speedway in the past. After taking the Labor Day Weekend off, the fall special event race slate gets in gear with the 21st Annual ―Western PA Sprint Championship‖ on Saturday, September 11. Not only will this be another $2,000 to-win DIRTcar Sprint Challenge Series event, but it’ll also include the top three classes of cars as the Big-Block Modifieds return for another $1,500 to-win feature and will be joined along with the FASTRAK Late Models in the final points event of the season. As hard as it’s to believe, the 2010 season will mark the 11th for the prestigious ―Little Guy Nationals‖. A small idea that was brainstormed on a cold, rainy evening in the winter of 1999 has blossomed into an annual tradition that attracts masses of racers from all over the Northeast. This year’s affair will take place on Friday and Saturday, September 24-25 featuring complete shows both days for the Modifieds, open Stock Cars, Strictly Stocks, and Mini Stocks, while the Micro Sprints battle on Friday night and the FASTRAK Late Model non-winners on Saturday. Those exciting changes that took place in last year’s ―Little Guy Nationals‖ format will be back once again! The curtain will be drawn on the 2010 season for the third annual ―Fall Brawl‖ on Saturday, October 2. Late Model fans will be in heaven as it’s a double dip of full-bodied excitement! FASTRAK will be battling it out for precious points in Night 1 of the Grand Nationals, while the Super Late Models race for $2,000 towin in the 40th anniversary since they first appeared at The Park in 1970 when L.J. Dennis won the first race. And like the opener, the United E-Mod Series will be on tap, but this time the ante’s been doubled with $2,000 on the line. ―I think we’ve put together an exciting schedule of special race events for both the racers and the fans,‖ acknowledged 12th year owner Emig. ―There’s truly something for everyone! All of our local and regional racers can not only compete with basically no modifications to their cars, but can win every single event. The best part is they are all affordable with the majority $15 for adults with none priced over $17 for adults, $38 for families, or $7 for kids 6-15, and of course kids five and under and parking are always free!‖ Though it’s not a special ―race‖ event, truck and tractor pulling fans pack The Park annually on Memorial Day Weekend for the All-American ―Spring Nationals‖ World Championship Pulling event presented by Fallsway Equipment Co. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 29 with a rain date of Sunday featuring the Big-Rig Semis, Smoker Series Tractors, Hot Diesel 4x4 Trucks, and Pro Street Gas 4x4 Trucks. Mercer Raceway Park will showcase the Luxaire Heating & Cooling Sprint Cars, Approved Toilet Rental Modifieds, 4 Your Car Connection FASTRAK Late Models, Stock Cars, and Mini Stocks on a regular basis beginning April 3 pending the completion of the ―Chiller Thriller‖. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. with warm-ups at 6:15 and racing at 7.
