By Susan Gibney Special to The Herald Sylvania residents Caitlin and mallorie Sutter have always been rivals. The sisters used to spar over whose turn it was to do the dishes, let the dog out or cut the grass. but now the Southview High School graduates are fighting on a whole new turf – the college soccer field. Caitlin, captain of the Baldwin-Wallace College soccer team, and mallorie, a freshman at muskingum University, faced each other in an ohio Athletic Conference Match at the George Finnie Stadium in Berea, OH, recently. And while they’re competing on the soccer field, their father Sgt. First Class Timothy J. Sutter, U.S. Army, stationed in Kandahar, Afghanistan, is serving on the battlefield. “It was just surreal - I was playing against my sister in college soccer and my biggest fan is over in Afghanistan in the war,” said the eldest sister. “He would have loved to be there. We are going to send him a DVD of it.” Mallorie chimed in. “It was very emotional to say the least. It was really cool to be out there on the field with my sister. In some ways I was distracted because I kept watching her and in other ways I just wanted to beat her!” To add to the emotion, it was

Caitlin and Mallorie Sutter, Southview graduates, have a sisterly rivalry on the soccer field.
Caitlin’s last regular season soccer game and Seniors and Parents Day. The Sports Management and Public relations Double Major was escorted on the field by her mother Teresa Sutter along with Mallorie. As a senior and captain, Caitlin was a standout all four years for bW and mallorie hopes to have similar successes as a Fighting Muskie. “I sure hope I can be as good as my sister,” Mallorie said, just after her goal attempt was called back by the referee for being offsides. It would have been the Muskies only goal. The final score was 5-0. Caitlin said she caught herself watching that play as a spectator. “I was like ‘oh my gosh – she’s scoring a goal.’ Then even before the ref called it I had a feeling it was offsides. Then I was like I better pay attention here – I gotta defend my team.” And to add to the distraction, the girls were being cheered on at the game by a host of family and friends from Toledo and Sylvania. “I was pleasantly surprised that so many close to us made the two-hour trip to watch the once-in-a-lifetime occurrence,” said their mother Teresa Sutter. The only fan missing was their Dad. Tim will be in active duty for a year but will be able to watch the recorded game from his laptop. “I know he will be proud when he watches the DVD,” Caitlin said. “I wish he could have been there but he was in spirit.”

Uh-Oh, Here Comes Christmas is a series of dramatic vignettes based on Fulgham’s short stories that take a funny, warm-hearted and poignant look at the struggle to find the holiday spirit. The show has become a family-friendly tradition in the Toledo area, alongside A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker. The Drama Society performances will be held in the Ebeid Student Center located on the lower level of McAlear Hall. General admission is $5 per person. For more information, contact Keith Ramsdell, Drama Society Advisor, at 419517-8881. Author Robert Fulghum has published seven bestselling books with more than 16 million copies of his various works in print and published in 27 languages in 103 countries. Fulghum has also performed in two television adaptations of his work for PBS and was nominated for a Grammy for a spoken word production of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in USPS-610-360 Kindergarten.

Emily Siebeneck was the “morale” for Mark Donkersloot who was the “puller” of pit #13.
Two Sylvania residents, Cody Brant and Emily Siebeneck, participated in the Pull, one of the nation’s oldest college traditions, on Saturday, Sept. 25. The Pull, first held in 1898, is an annual fall highlight at Hope. It started as a tug-of-war between the freshman and sophomore classes for the freshman to earn their place on campus. Over the years, it has evolved into a grueling three-hour match during which freshman and sophomore teams, entrenched in shallow pits on opposite sides of the Black River, attempt to gain the most rope through their strength and stamina. Each team had 18 students on the rope as “pullers,” and another 18 acting as guides and morale boosters, or “morales.” The Pull brings hundreds of alumni, parents and students to cheer on the “odd” or “even-” year team. The odd-year class of 2013 won this year’s Pull. The winning team went into the Black river and chanted victory songs while the losing team looked on in respect of a well fought competition. Cody Brant, a freshman, was a puller for the class of 2014 team. He is the son of Rodney and Teresa Brant and is a graduate of Northview High School. Emily Siebeneck, a sophomore, was a moraler for the class of 2013 team. She is the daughter of Tony and Therese Siebeneck and is a graduate of Central Catholic High School.

Goodwill selected as facilitator for state employment project
This past summer, Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio was selected by the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission (RSC) to facilitate one of six employment demonstration projects in the state. Funded by a grant from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), the Micro Enterprise & Customized Employment Demonstration Project (MCED) is designed to help create individualized employment opportunities for people with significant disabilities. The project runs from August, 2010 until September, 2011 and will focus on 25 individuals, the goal being to have them in either customized employment or their own micro enterprise. The MCED requires the establishment of a Community Action Team for each project participant. The team will consist of vocational rehabilitation and workforce development professionals as well as individuals who are familiar with the participants they are assisting. The goal of the team is to help the person gain employment. Each project participant is referred by the Ohio RSC to Goodwill which then acts as the lead organization for the individual’s movement through the program. The first step taken by Goodwill and the Community Action Team is to lead the individual through the “discovery” process to determine what they see themselves doing for employment. This is based on the individual’s interests and abilities. Upon completion of the discovery process, the individual is linked with employers in the community to explore the possibility of customized employment. If the participant wants to be self-employed, they are referred to Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) to learn the steps of running a business. Goodwill and the SBDC work jointly in teaching the individuals such skills as accounting, budgeting, developing a business and marketing plan. During this entire process the individual’s Community Action Team serves as their support and sounding board. Again, the goal of everyone involved is to help the individual be either selfemployed or attain customized employment in the community. The MCED project will serve

as a “living” demonstration of the customized employment and micro enterprise approach in Ohio. There are currently 15 individuals enrolled and taking part in the program. Kathy LeRoux, Goodwill’s community employment services manager, is the MCED project manager and oversees its day-to-day operations. “This is a wonderful, ground breaking demonstration,” says LeRoux. “All of us at Goodwill are grateful to be a part of it and feel the project will pave the way for new and exciting avenues for people with barriers to employment.” For more information on Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio, please visit our web site:

A town crier (or bellman) is one who makes public announcements, and dresses elaborately by tradition dating to the 18th century. They carry a hand bell to attract attention, and used to be the means for bringing the news to the people. When technology replaced the need for a town crier, the position was doomed to remain only in folklore. But the tradition was reborn, and town criers continue to ring their hand bells and shout “Oyez Oyez Oyez” all over Europe. (It’s pronounced oh-yay, by the way, and means “hear ye” to get people’s attention.) There are only about a dozen in the United States, however, and Sylvania is fortunate to have our very own. Michael Lieber was appointed to the position created by a City Council ordinance in 1995, and he’s been crying ever since! As town crier, he cuts ribbons, opens festivals, leads parades, delivers proclamations and kicks off conventions. He helps the community greet visiting dignitaries, opens sports seasons, and acts as ambassador for Sylvania. He also regularly appears at naturalization ceremonies in Federal Court, a special honor. His elaborate costume is authentic garb, chosen by the Sylvania Area Historical Society, representing what would have been worn by a gentleman in the 1830s, which is when Sylvania was founded. He writes his own cries, which usually

includes ceremonial elements of the time period he represents. He belongs to town crier guilds and associations, and has participated in crying competitions, which he finds quite fun. As Michael begins his 16th year as Sylvania’s town crier, he fondly recalls the times his position has brought him “fame and fortune.” He appeared in a short interview on Good Morning America, from when the show was in our area. But even more fun, was when he was flown out to Los Angeles to appear on the television show “To Tell The Truth.” Provided with a rental car, he and a few family members had a full day sightseeing, and the next day, he attended the show taping. It was quite interesting, he says. It was in December, 2000, and two other men appeared with him, trying to fool the celebrity panel. Michael and the others all claimed to be a town crier, and they all wore official garb. He wore his own costume, another was attired in his extra outfit, and the third wore something the producers got from the wardrobe department. The other contestants were not supposed to be professional actors, but they did such a good job portraying him, Michael had his doubts. The celebrity panel Michael had to face included Richard Kind, Brooke Burns, Meshach Taylor and Paula Poundstone, with host John O’Hurley. The contestants were asked questions, like how many time had they cried, what was their most recent cry (our town crier said, the Santa Claus parade in Woodstock, Ontario), and miscellaneous details. He was advised that the less info provided in answering, the better. The object of the game is to fool the celebrity panel and win. And our esteemed town crier indeed won. The three men split the $5000 prize, and he has never forgotten the excitement. So was this professional crier nervous in front of the cameras, celebrities, and audience? You bet!

Military Brief
David T. Shipko graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as “Operation Warrior Forge,” at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Wash. The 32 days of training provide the best possible professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet’s officer potential as a leader by exercising the cadet’s intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and physical stamina. The cadet command assesses each cadet’s performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course. Cadets in their junior and senior year of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon successful completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, National Guard, or Reserve. The cadet is a student at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He is the son of David T. and Mary K. Shipko of Westcliffe Court, Sylvania, OH. Shipko graduated in 2007 from St. John’s Jesuit High School, Toledo, Ohio.

St. Ursula Academy claimed its second state title, winning the Division I championship 15-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-18 over third-ranked Dublin Coffman Saturday at Wright State University’s Ervin. J. Nutter Center. St. Ursula (28-1) also won it all in 2004, while Coffman (27-2) takes home the runnerup trophy for the second consecutive year. Coffman had a fast start, winning the first set by 10 points behind 20 kills and only two attack errors. But St. Ursula took control soon thereafter and won the pivotal third set, which included 13 ties or lead changes. Four St. Ursula players had 10 or more kills, including junior Erin Williams with 15, senior Maggie Burnham with 12, sophomore Maddie Burnham with 10 and junior Cassidy Croci with 10. Senior Veronica Zimmerman collected 37 assists and six aces.

Carrie Borchers, Sylvania Northview High School graduate, is included in the Grand Rapids Business Journal’s 2010 “40 Under Forty Business Leaders” list. Honorees are nominated on the basis of leadership, professional achievement, awards, and community service. Borchers, who is the Sales Account Manager at IT Resource in Coopersville was recognized earlier this year as one of the Grand Rapids Business Journal’s 50 Most Influential Women in West Michigan, and as a Lakeshore Athena Award nominee. “I feel very honored to be recognized among this dynamic group of business leaders,” Borchers said. “Every day I strive to continue to learn best practices in business and add to my list of accomplishments; it is an honor to be recognized for my success in business as well as my efforts in the community.” In addition to being a key member of the IT Resource sales team, Borchers holds three Cisco certifications, and spends a generous amount of time volunteering on the Board of Directors for the Coopersville Chamber of Commerce, the Coopersville Rotary Club, and the Holland Home of Grand Rapids.
