“It was a miracle,
an absolute miracle.”
Independence, Ohio — Are you long in the tooth or do you have
sensitive teeth? You may have receding gums. In fact, 50 percent of
people have some form of gum recession. A painful surgery was the
only answer, until now. Out of necessity, one dentist is trying to ease
the pain for his patients and millions of others.
Dr. Thomas Bilski,
NE Ohio’s leader in
PST procedure
No surgery, no sutures, all smiles, that’s what Dr. Thomas Bilski wanted for his patients.
“I just didn’t see why dentistry has to have a procedure that hurts so much,” said
Thomas Bilski, DDS; general dentist in Independence, Ohio. So, Dr. Bilski searched for
an alternative and found a new technique called, the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST).
Conventional gum grafting is painful. Dentists cut and remove tissue from the roof
of the mouth, and then graft it onto the receded gum. Now, Dr. Bilski provides the new
PST procedure that is an almost painless option.
“There’s some recession of the gums that many children and adults suffer with this
unattractive and very sensitive problem.
Maria had the procedure.
“There’s some sensitivity and I do not like the way my gums look,” Maria told Dr.
Dr. Bilski doesn’t cut, but uses a needle to make a small hole above the diseased area.
“We loosen up the gum and drape it down to where it’s supposed to be. Then we
reinforce it with some collagen,” Dr. Bilski explained. There are no grafts, no sutures,
and no incisions needed with the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. It simply involves the
adjustment of the existing tissue.
The pinhole procedure uses a needle, can correct 10 to 14 teeth at once, takes about
20 minutes for up to three teeth, and recovery is less than a day. Traditional surgery
requires two incisions, only corrects one to two teeth at a time, takes almost two hours,
and there’s a three-week recovery. Joyce was one of the first to have it done.
“It was a miracle, an absolute miracle,” Joyce explains and is happy to tell everyone
about her pretty new smile.
It is expected to be a permanent procedure and should not need to be repeated.
As for risks, in the past Dr. Bilski says he has not seen any higher risk with the pinhole
technique than with traditional methods. The cost is comparable to traditional methods and can range from 500 dollars to 1,800 dollars. Right now, Dr. Bilski is the only
dentist doing this procedure, in northeastern and northwestern regions of Ohio and is
one of 500 dentists in the world to have been trained and certified by the inventor of
this technique, Dr. John Chao of Alhambra, CA.
The benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ are many:
• Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
• Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
• No need for uncomfortable sutures
• No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
• No need to take donor tissue from the patient’s palate
• Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results
This is an exciting new way to handle a very common problem. Call our
office at 216-524-4410 and schedule a complimentary consultation with
Dr. Bilski.

State files motion to dismiss MADION case
by Jon Huff
The state is challenging a class-action
lawsuit filed by Mothers Against Drilling
In Our Neighborhoods (MADION)� Ohio
Attorney General Mike DeWine submitted
a motion of dismissal for the group’s case
against Gov� John Kasich and the State
of Ohio� According to the Jan� 8 motion,
DeWine states that MADION, along with
plaintiffs Tish O’Dell, Gerard Volk and Barbara Vonbenken, “failed to allege sufficient
facts to demonstrate that they have standing
to assert any claims�”
Bass Energy and Ohio Valley Energy Systems are also listed as defendants in the case�
“The attorney general of the state, Mike
DeWine, filed a motion to dismiss the case,”
said O’Dell, a co-founder of MADION�
“Again, they are trying to claim we don’t
have any legal standing� They want to block
us from even getting into the courtroom�
And this is the state government that we’re
supposed to go to when we need something
changed� Reading the motion says so much
about what is wrong with the system�”
At the center of the suit, filed Dec� 4 in
Cuyahoga County common pleas court, is
the Broadview Heights Community Bill of
Rights� Voted into city charter during the
Nov� 6, 2012, election, the bill of rights
prohibits new oil drilling in Broadview
Heights among other items�
On June 10, 2014, Bass and Ohio Valley
sued the city over the bill of rights, claiming it denied their right to drill as stated in
Ohio House Bill 278� Judge Michael Astrab
of Cuyahoga County common pleas court
denied the request of MADION, alongside
the city, to intervene as a party defendant�
The case between Bass and Broadview
Heights remains to be settled�
“We want to be on the offensive instead
of the defensive,” O’Dell said� “The state
continues to issue permits that do not take
our law seriously� We were not allowed to intervene [in the Bass case against Broadview
Heights]� They keep trying to keep us out,
but we will keep trying to present our case so
our side can be heard� How can the residents
of the community directly affected not have
In his report, DeWine refers to the suit as
an attempt by MADION to be included in
a case against Bass and Ohio Valley�
“This case must be seen for what it is: an
end run around a denied intervention motion,” DeWine said in the motion�
“No one knows what will happen if a case
The BroadView Journal, March 2015
goes to the courts,” O’Dell said� “It seems
they are fighting tooth and nail to keep this
from getting into the courtroom… The
way [the state] says it, it’s like the people
are interfering with state affairs that don’t
concern them� That kills me� He is talking
about overturning a law that the people of
Broadview Heights passed by 67 percent�
[Oil companies] claim that they have the
right to drill� The drillers get to make that
case but the people aren’t allowed to bring
their case�”
While waiting for the court’s decision
and responses from Bass and Ohio Valley,
O’Dell and MADION are looking at their
next moves if the case is dismissed� O’Dell
believes a continued optimism is needed
despite whatever challenges may come�
“We’re following the court process because
we want to give the court the opportunity to
recognize that we have community rights,
because the court process is supposed to
produce justice,” O’Dell said� “We’re filing
a response to the attorney general’s motion
to dismiss; but, we also recognize that everything is stacked against us� So, like the
other movements in history, the women’s
rights or civil rights movements, we are not
putting all our faith in the courts to make
justice happen� We’re fighting for our community rights� The community decided we
don’t want drilling in our future� If the law
dismisses us, it is unjust law�” ∞

Resident is appalled by
bird bowling
To the Editor:
In regards to issue February 2015 and
article “BBHHS bowling with the bird
benefits the needy,” I am compelled to
give an opinion� I find it appalling to use
an animal carcass that was meant to be
food as a bowling ball� That animal had
a life once and was a beautiful bird that is
the symbol of Thanksgiving� Hopefully, it
took its beating and became food again�

the Golden Glove in the North Woods
League in 2008� He is also the son of singer/ songwriter/musician Todd Rundgren
and the stepbrother of actress Liv Tyler�
Other than that, he is just an ordinary
29 year old, catching baseballs and teaching baseball fundamentals to young players and that is just the way he likes it�
“Although I have a framed album of his
on the wall at Diamond Elite, I am not
sure the kids even know who my dad is,”
he laughed�
“Growing up I never really cared that
my dad was a rock star, I pretty much
concentrated on playing baseball,” said
Rundgren� “I followed my older brother
Rex’s lead� He was also a shortstop and
was drafted by the Florida Marlins and
played in the minors for the Colorado
Rockies and L�A� Dodgers,” he said�
When his brother, Rex, began his baseball career, their musician father had to
switch gears�
“My dad never knew anything about
baseball and really studied up on it and
followed my brother’s career,” said Rundgren� “When I started to play, he also kept
track of my career�”
As to how his father’s career influenced
Randy, Rex and their younger brother ReBop, Rundgren said, “I remember we used
to go to some of his shows, but that was
before we moved to Hawaii when I was
11� None of us can sing, but I do think
we all have an ear for music� My brother
ReBop is perhaps the most interested in
music and is doing voice-over work on the
West Coast� Rex is now working with my
dad as a stagehand and is also studying in
Although his brothers are enjoying
the warm weather and abundant sunshine on the West Coast, Rundgren is
happy in Northeast Ohio� No stranger to
changes in season, he was born in New
York, moved to California and eventually settled in Hawaii with his family�
Rundgren left Hawaii to attend Sacramento City College in California where
he competed in a final four tournament
in� After college he continued to work
in the college’s baseball camps before
coming to Ohio�
“My aunt lives in Parma and knew Diamond Elite Sports was just getting started
The BroadView Journal, March 2015
emphasizing things like good form on the
field and good positioning for catching
fly balls� You might say we are remolding
the players so they can play their best,”
he added�
Rundgren said he is also working with
the Walsh Jesuit High School boys baseball team and is enjoying every minute
of it�
“They are a great powerhouse and have
a good coaching staff, which I am happy
to be contributing to,” he said�
As he adjusts to life in Ohio, Rundgren
admitted he is a fan of his new hometown
baseball team�
“I am a long-time fan of the San Francisco Giants, but I have begun to root for
the Indians,” he said� “Omar Vizquel is
one of my all-time favorite players, topped
only by Derek Jeter�” ∞

It’s winter again in northeast Ohio–
snow, wind chills below zero, snowplows,
salt and some snow days� So far, this has
been a gentler winter than last year, but
we’ve all seen snow in April, so it’s not
over yet� On days when it snows, our road
crews are out around the clock, plowing
and salting roads� When you see them,
please keep a safe distance, both for your
safety and theirs� It’s a tough job� Also, on
days you see the plows out, please move
vehicles off the street� Parking bans are in
effect on those snowy/icy days, but it is
not possible to notify everyone that a ban
has occurred� Unfortunately, sometimes
the weight of the snow being plowed by
the drivers causes damage to mailboxes�
If this should occur, please call City Hall
at 440-526-4357 and request a temporary
mailbox� In the spring, we will install a
new U�S� regulation mailbox�

important aspects of the operation of

responsibility continues to be one of the
main priorities of this administration,
even though it is not often covered by the
media� Broadview Heights has been very
prudent in the way it allocates funds and
we are also very cautious when it comes to
spending the taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars� Because of the sound fiscal policy my
administration has been following for the
past seven years that I have been mayor,
the city has never had a higher general
fund balance at the year’s end than we
have seen for the past few years� Because
of the hard work and fiscal integrity of the
fine people who work for the city, whether
hired or elected, Broadview Heights
continues to be a financially strong and
vibrant city–a place that we are all proud
to call our home town�

ODOT study suggests slower speeds on SR 82
by Jon Huff
Jan. 26 council work session
The Ohio Department of Transportation
(ODOT) recommends some changes to
speed limits along state Route 82 between
Broadview Heights and Brecksville� City
Engineer Eugene Esser asked Broadview
Heights City Council to consider ODOT’s
speed zone study�
ODOT sponsored the study, requested
by the cities of Broadview Heights and
Brecksville, in preparation for the Route
82/Interstate 77 improvement project� The
study examined speed zones between Treeworth Boulevard in Broadview Heights and
Highland Drive in Brecksville� As a result
of the study, ODOT suggests reducing the
road speed limit from 45 mph to 35 mph
between Treeworth and I-77� Also suggested
is a reduction of speed from 50 mph to 45
mph between I-77 and Old Royalton Road
and a quarter-mile 35 mph “transition zone”
before reaching the 25 mph stretch through
the center of Brecksville�
Ray Mack, director of public services,
requested council approve the purchase of
a new pump for the Boston Road Pump
Station� The new pump would be a 75 HP
submersible pump to replace a 150 HP
pump rebuilt in early 2014� The new pump
costs $19,980�
“We had some problems with pumps last
year; at that time I took a 150 pump out of
service,” Mack said� “I would like to buy a
second pump and take the other 150 pump
out of service� It is over-designed for our
pump station and less efficient than today’s
equipment� We will keep the old pumps as
The service department is also looking to
buy a new backhoe� The backhoe is priced
at $88,941 from Ohio CAT�
“The backhoe we use now is 21 years old,”
Mack said� “We intend to keep it in service�
With the new backhoe, we will be able to
work on two dig jobs in different parts of
town at once� Currently we have to do one
job at a time�”
Fire Chief Jeffrey Hajek requested to sell
the department’s 2004 Road Rescue ambulance� If approved, the ambulance will be
sold to Highland Hills for a cost of $23,000�
The Broadview Heights planning commission gave final approval to plans for the
Club Motor Estates development� The “car
The BroadView Journal, March 2015
condominium” complex will be done in two
phases� The first phase will modify the existing Al Koran Shriners building on Edgerton
Road with a second phase to construct two
additional buildings on the property�
In other council news, local lawmakers
tabled a resolution to rezone three parcels
of land on Akins Road during its Jan� 20
regular meeting� The parcels would be
rezoned to allow construction of a nursing
home near the intersection of Akins and
Broadview roads� Council members voiced
apprehension over spending public money
on the special election while residents shared
concern about introducing a commercial
zone on a residential street� ∞

Council talks pay raise
for mayor, council
April 18
June 13
by Jon Huff
Feb. 9 council work session
After five years of salary freezes,
Broadview Heights City Council discussed the future of pay rates for the positions of mayor and council members�
“Every four years we decide on salaries
for the mayor and city council,” said
Council President Robert Boldt� “What
we have to decide is whether we want
to separate the mayor from the council,
and then what compensation council
will receive�”
According to Boldt, after speaking
with council members outside of the
work session, the general consensus was
to put the mayor on a higher pay scale
than council members, but less than the
police and fire chiefs� To do so, council
created tentative plans for a pay increase
over the next four years� If approved,
The BroadView Journal, March 2015
the mayor’s pay would be increased by
5 percent for 2015-2016, and 4 percent
each year for the following three years�
During the previous pay discussions in
2010, council set the mayor’s pay rate
at $94,227 each year from 2011-2012
through 2014-2015�
“After a five-year freeze [for the mayor’s
pay rate], it’s probably time for an increase,” Boldt said� “I think we need
to make an adjustment where he is the
highest paid [member of council]� Ultimately, he is responsible for everything
that passes through council�”
Councilman Glenn Goodwin questioned making the mayor the highest
paid position�
“In most of the cities around us – Independence, Seven Hills, North Royalton – the mayor isn’t the highest paid
position in the city,” Goodwin said� “In
North Royalton, the mayor has a city a
little over one and a half times our size�”
“But do they have the same amount of
responsibility?” Councilwoman Jennifer
Mahnic asked�
Councilman James Giomini spoke of
the pay rate in a business sense�
“We can’t look at this as the seven
people sitting here,” Giomini said� “We
need to look at the future, as a business
case� I believe a full-time mayor is the
CEO of the city and he should be paid
as such for compensation�”
Council unofficially decided to separate the mayor’s pay rate from that
of council� Under the potential plan,
council will also get a pay increase at a
rate of 3 percent each year for the next
four years� Council plans to finalize the
proposal and vote on it at the Feb� 16
regular council meeting�
City engineer Eugene Esser also asked
council to vote on an agreement with
the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to resurface Route 82
from Ken Mar Industrial Parkway to
the city’s eastern border� The project is
part of ODOT’s Route 82/Interstate 77
interchange improvement�
The cost is estimated at $1�5 million�
Esser said this is the last piece of legislation needed for the project to move
ahead� If approved, Esser said ODOT
could put the project out to bid by the
end of the month with construction
beginning later this year�
Building Official Michael Skvasik presented council with a plan for the Wiltshire development by Petros Homes as
passed by the city planning commission�
The commission approved a revised lot
split, removing a planned cul-de-sac on
St� Andrews Lane and reducing the lot
plan for St� Andrews and Fairway lanes
by two lots�
Goodwin asked about the number of
approved units for the plans� The plans
originally called for 240 units before revision and the addition of Fairway Lane�
“There were more lots approved on
St� Andrews and fewer lots on Fairway,”
Skvasik said� “Now there are more lots on
Fairway� They changed the configuration
of lots and eliminated the cul-de-sac on
St� Andrews to allow for a stormwater
basin� [The change] is just where the lots
are located�”
Police Chief Michael Vizer asked council to approve the purchase of four 2015
Dodge Charger patrol cars� The cars are
priced at $26,172 each for a total cost
of $104,688�
“It’s again time for the department to
rotate four vehicles out,” Chief Vizer
said� “We would like to rotate our four

permission to replace them with 2015s�”
Vizer also asked council to accept an
Alco-Sensor FST portable breath tester�
The piece of equipment, valued at $540,
was given to the department by University Hospitals as a prize for participating
in a 2014 motorcycle safety program�
No action was taken� Council was set
to vote on the proposals at the Feb� 16
regular council meeting� ∞
Today’s Topic:
Leg Pain
Do you feel burning,
cramping numbness or
aching in your leg(s)? Do
cramps in your calves
keep you awake at night?
In many cases, leg pain is
caused by subluxations in Specialist
the spine. Subluxations are Dr. Ryan Haely
misalignments of the bones
in the body, and referred pain can occur in the
legs (or other extremities like wrists, hands and
feet). In many cases, lower back subluxations
are the cause of leg pain, such as with sciatica
problems. The displaced or subluxated bones
put pressure on nerves, causing muscle spasms
or pain. To get rid of the pain naturally, we
must remove the pressure on the nerves, not
cover-up symptoms with drugs. Chiropractic
adjustments can realign the bones of the spine
to ease leg pain safely and effectively without
the use of surgery or drugs. Call me today at
440-838-5755 if you want to have legs that are
free of pain!

City wants to make downtown area the center of it all
Petros development underway
by Nancy Hudec
In 1994, Meijers proposed building a
230,000-square-foot store and separate
gas station on the southwest quadrant of
Route 82 and Broadview Road. Touted as
an economic boon by creating 700 new
jobs and $315,000 in real personal property taxes, the project created a lightening
rod of opinions. Cries of, “there goes the
neighborhood, here comes the traffic,”
were heard throughout the Heights.
Meetings were held, letters were written
and on October 10, 1994, city council
voted against the project.
Two decades later there are no signs of a
Meijers, Target, Walmart or any other big
box retail store on the site. Del Corpo’s
Home and Garden Center is gone from
the corner, the Dairy Queen west of it is
rubble and a new Dunkin Donuts is the
only sign of new life, for now.
Change is coming. Although not on the
same superstore scale, nor mired in the
same controversies, things are a changing.
“This summer the city would like to
build a park on the 1.3-acre plot of land
we own on the southwest corner,” said
Economic Development Director Dave
“We would like it to feature something
unique to Broadview Heights, maybe a
fountain or a clock tower,” he added.
When asked about the 20 to 25 acres of
land further south and west of the park
site, Schroedel said, “There are multiple
land owners involved and while there
has been talk of development, there are
no immediate plans. When the economy
tanked, large developers were not even
considering building in northeast Ohio.
As things have improved, interest has renewed, but while retail developers claim
they like the income levels in Broadview
Heights, they want more density.”
Schroedel said the downtown area
(Route 82 and Broadview Road) has
zoning that allows for higher density. He
said the new Petros’ homes project on the
east side of Broadview Road, off of Town
Center Drive addresses that issue.
According to Sam Petros, “The nineacre property behind existing homes on
Broadview Road and accessible off of
Town Center Drive can accommodate
23 homes. We have one model nearing
completion. Home prices will start right
around $300,000, a good price for being
in the Brecksville-Broadview Heights
school system,” said Petros.
As the Petros’ homes go up on the
southeast side of Broadview Road, a
Broadview Heights Walk-in Urgent Care
will rise from the old Dairy Queen store
rubble. Construction on the 4,000-square
foot center is expected to begin when the
weather breaks.
Schroedel said the one-story building
would be staffed by doctors, making it “a
step above a walk-in clinic at the major
drugstore chains.”
Wi t h t h e c h a n g i n g d ow n t ow n
Broadview Heights landscape, city officials are, according to Schroedel, dedicated to the same ideals that were true
decades ago.
“We want to increase walkability and
connect the area with our city campus,”
he said. ∞

District leaders talk classroom technology, strategic vision, busing
by Tess Wolfe
Jan. 26 work session and regular meeting
Board President Mark Jantzen turned
the floor over to Superintendent Scot
Prebles to introduce strategic vision proposals for the 2015-2016 academic year. If
approved by the board in coming months,
the proposed changes would result in
$312,000 in expenses and $242,000 in
reductions, leaving a total cost to the
district of $70,000.
Among the elements Prebles covered
were proposed changes in media and
technology for students. He suggested
that software for internal, longitudinal
tracking of students’ academic progress
was merited. Prebles also proposed that,
starting with the 2015-2016 academic
year, each sixth-grade student be assigned
his or her own laptop device, encouraging
student accountability and responsibility,
which would also result in the eventual
integration of assigned laptops from sixth
through twelfth grades. Paired with reducing computer lab use in the schools, this
would not result in increased cost to the
district. It could potentially involve an
increase in specialists and a decrease in
assistants at the media center.
“Technology integration is extremely
important,” Prebles said. “This is a move
toward more personalization, more
responsibility for [students’] own equipment and learning.”
Board members responded with questions regarding the use of the media
center, staffing and coordination of the
equipment and computer labs. Several
board members emphasized that further
discussion would be required prior to any
action on the matter.
Prebles agreed that these proposals
were for further board consideration, but
added, “We believe this is the future…
What we want to do is make it consistent
across the entire school district.”
At the regular meeting, board members
voted unanimously to no longer provide
district school bus transportation to
Brecksville and Broadview Heights students attending St. Ignatius High School.
That would save the district $33,000
annually. According to the Jan. 14 letter Prebles sent to St. Ignatius Principal
Dan Bradesca, six factors identified by
the Ohio Revised Code were considered,
including transportation costs, mileage
and ridership. Morning ridership to the
Cleveland private school averaged four
to eight students, while the afternoon
return trip averaged one to three students.
The BBHCSD will reimburse parents of
St. Ignatius students for transportation
beginning with the next academic year.
Among the staff recommendations approved unanimously by the board was
the retirement of Carla Calevich. The
director of curriculum and instruction
for the school district will retire on June
30, after 36 years of service. The position
will be posted during the second week of
February, she said.

Calevich looks back
on 36 years
by Michele Collins
Carla Calevich got her first job in the
Brecksville School District as a fourthgrade teacher in 1979. She was hired the
Friday before school started and when
asked if she could get her classroom ready
over the weekend, she didn’t hesitate to
say yes. Thirty-six years later, Calevich has
that same sort of ready-to-go attitude as
she enters a new phase in her life, that of
Effective June 30, Calevich will no
longer go to work in the same district
she has worked in for her entire career.
But she plans to stay active in education
and to continue to help others in her
“It has been an honor and a privilege
to have been at Brecksville-Broadview
Heights for my career. Many people
come to the district and don’t leave and
that is a tribute to what kind of a district
it is and what kind of people work here,”
said Calevich.
“I guess what I will miss most, though,
are the staff and the students. They are the
ones that make it hard to leave.”
Calevich said she is already planning to
stay involved during her retirement.
“I hope to volunteer in the BrecksvilleBroadview Heights community and
with my church. There are many ways to
provide service to our community and I
look forward to doing that,” she said. In
addition, Calevich said she will continue
to stay involved in education, perhaps
through consulting work.
Calevich has a lot of experience to
draw from. In addition to teaching
fourth-grade at Chippewa Elementary,
she taught high school Spanish and
reading at Brecksville Broadview Heights

or put up bulletin boards� I just knew
that I wanted to be a teacher and that
has never changed,” she said�
And even after 36 years, Calevich, the
teacher, the principal and the administrator, will continue her quest for lifelong
learning as she moves into this new phase
in her life� ∞

High School� She was then a principal
at Chippewa Elementary and in 2003,
took the position she currently holds as
Director of Curriculum and Instruction
for the district�
A graduate of Villa Angela High
School, Calevich obtained her undergraduate degree in education from John
Carroll University� She received a master’s degree from John Carroll University
and her principal certification from the
University of Akron� She obtained her
doctorate in curriculum and instruction
from Kent State University�
Being in education for 36 years, gave
her a unique perspective� She said she has
seen an entire shift in the way students
learn over her three decades in education�
When she started teaching, she said education centered on students listening to
facts the teacher would review� Today, she
said education is a collaborative system
where technology goes hand-in-hand
with instruction and where students are
encouraged to find the answers themselves in real time�
She added that one of the positives
of today’s education system is that it
encourages lifelong learning–something
Calevich herself has embraced during her
time at BBH school district�
“Being a teacher was my dream since I
was a small child� I had an aunt that was
a teacher and she became a mentor for
me� As young as second or third grade,
I would help my teachers grade papers

would attend one of the three primary
schools – Albion Elementary, Royal View
Elementary, and Valley Vista – based on
where they live�
Gurka presented the idea to board members at the work session on February 5� The
board will discuss the option with more
detailed data and vote on the proposal in
March, he said�
The discussion started when enrollment
data for the 2015-2016 school year showed
the district will be able to reduce elementary staffing through attrition and other
methods, which opens up classrooms to
accommodate the preschool and kindergarten students� A modular unit might be
needed at Royal View Elementary�
Gurka said there are educational and
financial benefits to the closure� For one
thing, kindergarten students will no longer
need to transition out of one building to
another at such an early age�
Students will be in one building for five
years with the added benefit of being in a
school environment surrounded by older
peers and participating in all school assemblies and educational programs, he said�
Preschool and kindergarten students will
also get access to technology and computer
labs and special classes such as art, music
and physical education, at the three school
On the financial side, the district will save
the $103,000 a year it spends to rent the
ECC facility owned by Broadview Heights,
reduce the cost of transporting students
to the ECC and eliminate a number of
positions, such as the building principal�
“We are hoping we are able through attrition, to put everybody in a position in
the district so nobody loses a job, although
it might not be the same position,” Gurka
A press release issued by the district said
Gurka has had a discussion with Broadview
Heights Mayor Sam Alai and Alai supports
the move due to the positive educational
benefits to the children�
“I believe the timing is right,” Gurka said
in the release� “The benefits to moving out
of the ECC, which when started in 2003
was only supposed to be a temporary
situation, and into the elementary buildings next year are numerous and the right
decision�” ∞

Mark Wood from the Trans-Siberian
The Electrify Your Strings (EYS) program, created by Wood, has Wood and
Bibbens facilitating workshops with the
middle school and high school orchestra
students� On Saturday, March 7, at 6
p�m�, the middle school orchestra will perform in concert, with Wood and Bibbens�
The high school students will perform
with Wood and Bibbens at 8 p�m� The
concerts give the students an opportunity
to showcase their newly acquired talents
from the EYS program�
O’Neal wanted to bring something different to the students, because, she said,
“Music is, and should be, an extension
of ourselves that not only expresses who
we are but can also express the current
world we live in� EYS gives our students
an opportunity to share 21st century ideas
in music education and they will have a
blast being a part of it�”
A supporter of public education, Wood
created the EYS program because, he said,
“We saw an important opportunity as
professional musicians to give back, that’s
our initial instinct�”
The program has many goals; one is to
introduce technology and incorporate a
wide variety of styles� Wood said he does
not want to replace classical music but
augment it� His style, he said, compliments the curriculum that teachers have
been using for 400 years�
Another goal is to elevate music proThe BroadView Journal, March 2015
grams so they are equal with academic
and athletic programs� “Music stimulates
brain activity and the grades of a child in
school,” he said� We try to send messages
out to the communities, parents, and
administrators that music programs are
critically important� Less than ten percent
of public schools have string programs
and it’s shrinking�”
A New York native, Wood’s mother
graduated from Oberlin Conservatory�
He said, “She had four boys in four years
and was determined to have a string
quartet�” The brothers performed in a
quartet� Afterward, Wood said, he would
go home and listen to Led Zeppelin and
the Beatles� He said he did not initially
understand that the music he loved could
be fused with his classical training�
Wood was given a full viola scholarship
to Juilliard at age 15� Instead of pursuing
classical music in a traditional way he
sought to try new things� He switched
to the violin and in addition to being a
founding member of the Trans-Siberian
Orchestra, Wood said, “I invented the
first electric violin� The violin, viola, and
cello world had not changed in 400 years
until I came along� I am still the only
person in the world still pursing this� We
are celebrating 25 years and all the famous
electric violinists play our instruments�”
The EYS program also introduces new
concepts of expression and connecting
with the kids of today who are completely
connected to their technology� “Computers, iPhones and iPads, have changed our
society in the world dramatically,” Wood
said� “If we don’t incorporate new styles
and new types of learning we will struggle
with relevancy in our school programs�”
The workshops promote empowerment
and support� “Since music is an elective,
recruitment and retention is important
to keep kids connected to musical instruments,” he stated� He said his belief is
that the mind, body and soul are critically
important to creative expression and his students learn that message through the music�
At each concert a four-string Electric
Stingray Violin, created by Mark Wood,
will be raffled off� Raffle tickets are
$3 each or four for $10� All proceeds
from the concert and raffle benefit the
middle school and high school orchestras� Concert tickets, $15 each or $25
for both shows, can be purchased at
bit�ly/BBHEYStickets�com or for willcall tickets, email O’Neal at [email protected]

The Danbury hits the Heights for seniors
by Nancy Hudec
Cuyahoga Falls has two Danburys.
Wooster, Westerville, North Canton,
and Columbus each have one Danbury
and Alliance is getting one. Not to be
left out, Broadview Heights will also get
one this fall.
Danburys are senior living facilities for
those needing assistance, independent living and/or memory care. The Broadview
Heights Danbury is being built on the
west corner of Broadview and Akins
Roads. The two-story, 101-unit building
by Lemmon and Lemmon of Canton,
should be completed in October.
“How long it takes after completion
before we are state licensed, is not clear,”
said William Lemmon. “It is generally
a one-to three-month process, but my
understanding is that the state is attempting to shorten that and make it a ten-day
If the procedure is shortened, it is likely,
said Lemmon, that the facility will accept
residents before year’s end.
Lemmon, who founded the Danburys
with partner Robert J. DeHoff, said, “I
began in the building business 50 years
ago and went into senior housing sixteen
years ago.”
In those 16 years, Lemmon has built
six Danburys that he said are, “without
entrance, endowment or up front community fees.”
There is a $1,000 deposit for application
that is, he said, “significantly different
than many other senior living facilities.”
As to what kind of living seniors can
expect at the Danbury of Broadview
Heights, Lemmon was quick to say, “the
best of everything.”
The best being a movie theater, spa,
beauty salon, fireplace lounge, fitness
area, private dining facility, craft room
and bright modern living suites.
With 101 suites, the Broadview Heights
facility is neither the smallest nor the
largest of the Danburys. “We have 43unit facilities and 135-unit facilities,”
Lemmon said.

“We chose to come to Broadview

the economic development director. We
will be creating 100 to 110 jobs,” he said.
Schroedel noted, “We were pleased to

fact that they build and manage their

for a 30-unit expansion off the back end

demand at an all-time high, we are experiencing multiple buyers bidding on
properties, resulting in top dollar for our home sellers.
If you have been thinking of right-sizing to a new home, now is the time to
capitalize on the increased market value and low interest rates.

Ohio CAT continues construction on company headquarters
by Jon Huff
The scene is fitting� Construction is
underway on a company that deals in
construction equipment� The headquarters of Ohio CAT is in the middle of a
$25 million expansion� When complete,
the structure will contain more than
140,000 square feet of housing offices
and company operations�
“It is well under construction,” David
Schroedel, Broadview Heights director
of economic development, said� “Phase
1 was completed last year� They are currently working on Phase 2, building on
the front of the structure, adding more
office space, area for meeting rooms,
lunch rooms, training rooms�”
According to Ohio CAT President Ken

Taylor, the construction was planned
in two stages� The first phase, completed late 2013, expanded space for
offices, technical training and support
operations� Now in progress is Phase 2,
to build meeting room space and conference space and prepare for company
operations being moved to Broadview
Heights� A familiar face in the city, the
expansion is something of a facelift�
“The facility opened in 1971,” Taylor
said� “We needed to update into a more
current building for a more comfortable
work environment� We also wanted more
physical space for collaborative work�
The building had a lot of space defined
as office space, but we didn’t have a lot
of meeting space� Our rental business
is located in Oakwood Village� We
will bring that to Broadview Heights,
which will bring additional people over�
We need to create office space for that
group� By bringing the rental business
to Broadview, we need to improve the
traffic patterns and flow� We also have
our agriculture business, Ohio Ag Equipment, and we are building headquarter
space for that division to operate out of
Broadview Heights�”
Expansion comes as business grows for
the company� Ohio CAT sells Caterpillar
equipment throughout Ohio, northern
Kentucky and southeastern Indiana�
“Our business has been driven by the
oil and gas markets in eastern Ohio along
with heavy highway road construction,”
Taylor said� “Strong numbers in a decent
market have driven sales�”
Job creation is expected with the
expansion� Taylor said Ohio CAT has
been hiring company-wide, with some
of those positions at the company
headquarters� Ohio CAT added 23 new
workers between June 2013 and January 2015, and the company estimates
another 30 positions will be created over
the next three years�
“We are building the space to accommodate more people,” Taylor said�
“Some we have already hired and are
right now working in cramped space�
Some we have yet to hire�”
With the new positions, Ohio CAT will
continue to be the largest employer in the
The BroadView Journal, March 2015
city� The expansion will bring benefits to
the city with added jobs and raised property value� The presence of the company
provides other benefits for Schroedel’s
development efforts�
“The construction will increase the
property tax, it will raise the value of the
property,” Schroedel said� “The company
will be adding employees� That number
has varied, but it will certainly be a significant increase� Ohio CAT is beneficial on
a couple different fronts� Ken Taylor has
helped me attract other companies to the
city� He sent letters to potential companies looking for a city≠≠ and I think those
letters helped companies make that decision� They are also very involved in the
city� They help us with our Home Days,
donating equipment and generators� They
are good corporate citizens�”
Completion of construction is planned
by summer 2016� The project, being
run by Marous Brothers Construction,
continues to move toward the finished
product� Not even a cold, snowy winter
is slowing it down�
“We are underway moving on the
building enclosure,” Chris Auvil, director of design for Marous Brothers, said�

Annual school fundraiser celebrates silver jubilee
by Kimberly Bonvissuto
Assumption Academy, part of Church
of the Assumption in Broadview Heights,
celebrated the silver jubilee, or 25th anniversary, of its annual Night at the Races
by moving the event off-site and including
More than 300 people gathered at Carrie Cerino’s Ristorante & Party Center
in North Royalton on Jan. 31, to be
entertained by 10 videotaped horse races.
The night also included raffle baskets,
football squares and sideboard, and nine
premium baskets in a silent auction of
student artwork.
Guests were invited to dance the night
away and were treated to appetizers, a
gourmet buffet dinner, an open bar and
pizza. Michael Angelo’s Bakery provided
a dessert display.
Principal Donna Sejba said a group of
progressive parents with a vision for the
school launched the event to create a
computer lab. She said it was the “advent
of technology” at the time, and the group
– then known as the education commission – took on the role of sponsor for
the fundraiser. The success of that event
fueled plans for an annual event.
“I’ve worked with many parents and different advisory boards over the years and
they are all diligent and committed to the
best interest of the school and students,”
Sejba said. “This is for the students.”
Over the years the proceeds from the
event mainly fund tuition assistance for
students in need, but funds also are used
for special projects, including technology and safety activities for students,
such as presentations on the dangers
of the Internet and social media. Sejba
said proceeds from this year’s event will

Dancers from Broadview Heights studio perform at Cavs game

A group of area dancers, ages 9 to 18,
took the stage at the Q in January to
perform at halftime of the Cleveland
Cavaliers’ game against the Sacramento
Kings� The 79 dancers – 78 girls and one
boy – participate in a non-competitive,
pre-professional program offered by
the Creative Movement Center in
Broadview Heights�
“We put together, with the help
of a professional DJ, a mix of songs
that we felt represented the story of
LeBron James and his journey back
home,” Hayley Schmidt, owner and
artistic director of the center, said�
They portrayed several of James’ recent
commercials and stories from his life
in custom-made jerseys, with a large
“23” on the back, as costumes� Also on
the jerseys was an image of Cleveland

Dogs, bunnies, birds offer pet therapy at Harborside
by Nancy Hudec
There is aromatherapy, dance therapy,
cognitive-behavioral therapy and mud
and salt therapy. But there is no therapy
quite like pet therapy and Broadview
Heights Harborside Healthcare residents
have the smiles to prove it.
“We’ve always been pet friendly, but
I think our pet therapy actually started
about 15 years ago when one of the nurses
brought in her dog,” said Harborside Activities Director JoAnn Lunsford.
Pet therapy at the Broadview Heights
facility involves everything from petting
the therapy dog, Molly, to brushing the
facility’s two Mini Rex bunnies or watching cockatiel bird brothers Knuckles and
Izzy flutter about in their cage.
According to,
Mini Rex bunnies are medium-size rabbits with short ears and plush coats. They
weigh three to four-and-a-half pounds,
come in a variety of colors, have friendly
personalities and enjoy petting. Harbor-

animals they get a
sensory experience and
their responses will melt
your heart.”

Harborside Activities Director
side’s Mini Rex bunnies are brown and
black and are mother and child.
The same website lists cockatiels as
clever birds that make good pets. They
are 10- to 14-inches long, have yellow
crests, bright orange cheeks and long tail
feathers. Often able to mimic words, the
Harborside birds are brothers and only
say “cheeseburger.”
“We find that residents that may not
interact with others will pet Molly, or
hold the bunnies and even laugh at the
birds,” said Lunsford. “When they touch
the animals they get a sensory experience
and their responses will melt your heart.
Even those with diminished cognitive
abilities, or those residents that can no
longer communicate, are touched by
touching the animals.”
Not only can residents touch the
animals, but in the case of the nowdeceased first bunny, Bun-Bun, they
enjoy watching the bunny ride around in
a wheelchair. Having the bunny ride in a
wheelchair puts them on the same level
as 75 percent of the patients, explained
“We are in the process of training the
two new bunnies to ride in the wheelchair and are having the residents name
them,” said Lunsford. “At this point,
Velvet is one favorite name, but the final
votes are not in,” she quipped.
Animals at Harborside are, she said, “rehomed,” meaning they came from shelters.
They live in the activities room in cages
and are never brought into dining areas
or a resident’s room while they are eating.
“There are state guidelines that prohibit
the animals from being around at meal
times, but there are no guidelines on
feeding the animals,” Lunsford laughed.
“In our cooking group, we make sure

saved from their own meals, ” she said�
Molly is the 2-year-old golden retriever
nurse Jean Harhay brings to work a few
times a month� Molly has, Lunsford
explained, completely adapted to the
wheelchairs and will sit quietly by resi-
dents’ chairs with her head in their lap�
“Some of our volunteers will bring
in their dogs, and we always welcome
family pets that want to visit one of our
residents,” said Lunsford�
“Pets can do amazing things that add
to a residents well-being,” she said� “We
had one woman, now deceased, that
was very stand-offish� She never interacted with others and rarely spoke� We
brought her down to the activities room
to see Bun-Bun and she fell in love with
it� She would come down and brush
the bunny and talk to it� Eventually she
began speaking to other residents and
socialized more� It was amazing to see
the change in her�”
Lunsford also saw a change in two
younger residents who do not participate
in any programs and rarely interact with
others� The two women will, however,
interact with the pets, coming out of
their rooms to visit the animals in the
activities center�
The animal kingdom at Harborside may
soon be getting a few finned residents�
“We are looking at getting an aquarium, but have nothing finalized yet,” said
Lunsford� ∞

workers who know how to repair water damage
in drywall and ceilings, remove wallpaper,
refinish aluminum and vinyl siding, and paint
vaulted ceilings, among other crucial tasks.
The business’ office is in Parma, but Toth is a

makes us better overall.”

Toth. “We’re going to be the ones who call you
back, show up on time and, most importantly, do
a clean, quality job.”

This Year stop worrying about your weight
and focus on losing your FAT!
by Eric Schaefer, MPT Manager,
Broadview Heights
Year round, day or night, awake or
sleeping, many people believe that if they
eat healthy, they will lose fat. And, almost
anyone you ask claims they eat healthy.
I’ve had clients come
into our studios that
w e i g h 10 0 p o u n d s
and you’d think they
were healthy because
they look skinny, but
50 pounds of that
scale weight was fat.
It’s the unwanted acc e s s p o u n d s of fat
that cause so many of
Eric Schaefer
our country’s current
health problems. Looking at the facts, the
only way to lose fat is to consume fewer
calories than your body burns daily. Yet,
more than two-thirds of the U.S. population is overweight or obese, so there is an
obvious discrepancy here.
The easy explanation for this is that
most people overestimate the healthfulness of their diet, which is usually true.
However, the more important distinction
is that “healthy” eating and fat-loss eating
are not the same things. If you are eating
healthy, you are not necessarily going to
be burning fat. There are several foods and
food groups that are healthy – meaning
they contain high amounts of vitamins and
minerals, as well as healthy fiber or good
fats – but will do very little to help burn fat.
Research over the past several years has
really revolutionized the way we look at
how we can effectively burn fat. Not only
has it been proven that traditional aerobic
exercise is one of the least effective forms
of exercise, it’s also one of the most time
consuming and could even be counterproductive. You’re really getting the least
amount of bang for your buck when you
spend extended amounts of time running
on a treadmill.
High-intensity interval training, on the
other hand, has consistently risen to the
top as the most effective and efficient form
of exercise. You’re actually getting MORE
benefits from high-intensity training than

you do from aerobic/cardio in a fraction of
the time – all because you’re utilizing your
body as it was designed to be used. You
can literally be done in about 20 minutes,
compared to spending an hour running on
the treadmill. And, for the record, strength
training is not just for men, women have

When you focus solely on diet you’re not
addressing the aging process of losing
muscle yearly, which lowers your metabolism. So, truly, if you’ve struggled finding
time for an effective exercise routine, this
could be the solution you’ve been looking
for. The key to make it work is intensity. The
intensity needs to be high enough that you
reach muscle fatigue.

Seal the deal
by Arlene J. Coloma, D.D.S., M.S.
What are dental sealants? Why does my child need them?
How long will they last? These are a few of the questions
that parents ask about dental sealants.
Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating applied to
the grooves of the chewing surfaces
on permanent molars to help protect them from decay. They act as a
physical barrier to help seal out germs
and bacteria. Dental sealants are
commonly placed on the permanent
molars. The first molars that erupt in
a child’s mouth are commonly referred
to as their six-year molars because
they erupt around the age of 6 years.
The second set of molars erupts in a
Arlene J. Coloma, child’s mouth around the age of 12
D.D.S., M.S.
and are commonly referred to as the
12-year molars. All of these permanent
teeth are meant to remain in your child’s mouth for the
remainder of his/her adult life.
The 6- and 12-year molars can sometimes be difficult
to clean due to their position in the mouth. These molars
tend to have many grooves and pits that can often be
difficult to keep free from food, germs and bacteria. The
majority of children’s cavities occur in these grooves and
pits. Sealants are meant to cover these deeper areas and
help make the surfaces smoother so bacteria have a more
difficult time penetrating these surfaces.
Sealants are considered to be a preventative measure to
help minimize the likelihood of cavities. Dental sealants are
much less invasive than fillings. They protect the tooth and
help to prevent needing dental treatment. They are placed
in an attempt to avoid decay, therefore leaving the tooth
in a much stronger position to fight off future unwanted
bacteria and germs.
Sealants can last for many years and should be checked
every six months at a routine dental check up. As long as
the sealants remain intact, the tooth surface is protected
from decay. Sealants hold up well under normal chewing
conditions and are most important during the first years
of the tooth’s existence in when the grooves and pits are
most prominent. With the incorporation of sealants into
your child’s preventative dental care, your child can be
well on their way to eliminating future tooth decay.

Prepare Your Child for
Future Careers This Summer
By Nanci Coleman,
CVCC Community Liaison
Many of the high-demand jobs of the future do not
even exist today. Many yet-to-be-discovered products
and services will be at the forefront of our economy
in years to come. So…how do parents and educators
prepare students for future careers, using technologies
that haven’t been invented, to solve problems we don’t
yet have?
One of the best things we can do to prepare students
for their future is to expose them to a variety of experiences that will develop their self awareness. The more
students know about themselves, the better prepared
they will be to connect with careers that match who they
are. Summer Career Camps provide students multiple
opportunities to engage in activities that will unleash
their innate skills and intensify their interests.
CVCC Summer Career Camps provide campers with
the opportunity to “try on” a career for a week. While
they acquire new skills, they also learn about themselves,
their interests, values, character traits and skills. This
enhanced self-awareness helps equip them to be able
to make critical college and career decisions in high
school and beyond.
Whether they are building a robot, filming a movie or
creating a website, campers employ science, technology, engineering and math concepts and learn critical
thinking and problem solving skills — all skills that will
be required in future careers. Campers in every camp
collaborate and work in teams, which develop their communication and interpersonal skills. As they participate
in new experiences, they find out what they enjoy and
find interesting.
CVCC will host Summer Career Camps in June for
students who will be entering grades 5 to 10. For a
complete list of camps offered or to register, visit www., or contact Nanci
Coleman at [email protected] or 440.838.8851.
Online registration with payment by credit card is available beginning February 9th.

Best Furnace Choice
by Tom Olecki
Furnaces built today basically come in
two different efficiencies: 80% or 95%.
Should you find
yourself in need of
a new furnace, an
important question to address is
how efficient a furnace should you
invest in?
Today, the premium and most
Tom Olecki, owner, efficient gas furBroadview Heating naces are around
95-97% efficient.
These furnaces will benefit you with reduced gas bills, longer heat exchanger
warranties and quieter operation. If
your old furnace was manufactured
approximately 20 years ago or more,
its efficiency might be 70% or less. You
could be saving 25% or more with this
new furnace.
The 95% furnaces are installed a little
differently than a typical standard efficiency furnace. For example, the exhaust
piping cannot go to your chimney. The
95% furnace is so efficient that we no longer need a high temperature vent system.
These furnaces are vented through the
sidewall of your home using PVC plastic
vent materials. A drain is usually required
near the furnace as well.
In contrast, a basic, standard efficiency
furnace manufactured today is 80 percent efficient. These furnaces will save
you around 10% over a typical furnace
that is over 20 years old, and 80% furnaces are usually vented or exhausted
to your chimney. A chimney liner may
be required to prevent condensation in
some instances. These furnaces install
for about $1,000 less than a comparably
featured 95% furnace.
So which should you choose? Since
we have found there is really no big difSponsored By

ference in reliability between furnaces,
I suggest you base your choice on the
A 95% furnace costs more to buy and
install than a standard furnace. Payback
for the extra money you invest will be
around 5-6 years. If you’re plans are to
sell your home in less than that amount
of time, you would be money ahead if
you chose a standard furnace. Standard
efficiency furnaces are a good solution
also for a rental property where your tenant is responsible for the gas bill.
Best value: If you plan to stay in your
home, there is no reason not to get the
most efficient furnace, if you can afford
the initial extra cost. Selecting high efficiency will benefit you in both comfort
and savings and will pay for itself over
and again during its life.

Attorneys as
by Laurie Malone, Attorney and Mediator
Yes, that’s right, attorneys can be peacemakers. That may
not be how you think of attorneys, but when an attorney
like me wants to help clients in a constructive manner, we
can bring peace to our clients’ lives,
while obtaining the results the clients
think are fair. This is particularly
important when people are dealing
with divorce.
When a peacemaker attorney
works with the family, he or she does
not attack or make things ugly. The
peacemaker attorney advocates
and protects their clients interests
in a productive manner.
Laurie Malone
M a ny p e a c e m a ke r at to r n eys
choose to become mediators or collaborative divorce attorneys. With these options, relationships are strengthened.
Parents are able to parent more effectively, and they have
stronger relationships with their children, as well as with
each other.
If you are contemplating divorce, think about how you
want your life to be five years from now. If you want to
be arguing with your ex, arguing your case in court will
enhance the possibilities of that happening. If you want
to be happy, financially secure, and at peace, consider
retaining a peacemaker attorney; and consider the options
of mediation or collaborative divorce.
As a peacemaker attorney, I am able to help my clients
achieve the best results possible, and that’s why they are
able to move on with the lives in a positive way. Contact
me, and I will help you figure out what’s best for you..
