The City of Vermilion Did Not Meet Treatment Requirements
In violation of Ohio Administrative Code Rules 3745-81-72 through 3745-81-75, The City of Vermilion failed to meet the treatment technique for turbidity by exceeding 1 NTU on January 10, 2015. In addition, the City of Vermilion failed to provide conventional filtration treatment in violation of Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3745-81-73. Conventional filtration treatment means a series of processes including coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation and filtration resulting in a substantial removal of particles. The City of Vermilion failed to provide coagulation.
We routinely monitor our water for turbidity (cloudiness). This tells us whether we are effectively filtering the water supply. Water samples taken January 10, 2015 showed turbidity levels of 2.1 turbidity units. This is above the standard of one turbidity unit. Because of these high levels of turbidity, there is an increased chance that the water may contain disease-causing organisms. We are required to consult with the director of Ohio EPA within twenty-four hours after learning of this violation. We did not contact Ohio EPA within 24 hours.
What should I do?
You do not need to boil the water or take other actions. The violations with health concerns occurred on January 10, 2015. We do not know of any contamination, and none of our testing has shown disease-causing organisms in the drinking water. However, if you have specific health concerns, contact your doctor.
Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can interfere with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth. Turbidity may indicate the presence of disease causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly people may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.
The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.
What is being done?
We are investigating and taking the necessary steps to correct the problem as soon as possible. For more information, please contact Bob Kurtz at 440-204-2402 or 440-204-2424 or mail to City of Vermilion, 5511 Liberty Avenue,Vermilion, OH 44089.
General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1(800) 426-4791.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
VLS Offering Crisis Response Training for Parents and Students
This year the Vermilion School District has been focusing on updating the district-wide plan for response to a violent intruder event, should one happen in our schools. We have been working with Common Sense Defense and the Vermilion Police Department throughout this process. Training on the new procedures will be phased in at each of our schools over the next two years. Our focus this academic year is on training high school teachers and students on the response plan.
We know that some parents may be concerned about the training and drills that the high school students will receive. To help you better understand the program, an information night for parents of high school students will be held on Tuesday, January 27 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the VHS Auditorium. The information night will allow parents to participate in the training their students will receive as well as allow time for questions to be answered.
On Monday, February 9, VHS students will participate in training on violent intruder and lockdown procedures. The training will provide an opportunity for students to practice what they learn. The training will be conducted by Common Sense Defense and the practice will be coordinated with Common Sense Defense and the Vermilion Police Department.
Teachers participated in a practical and realistic training drill in the fall and are now prepared to educate students on the plan. Our violent intruder procedures empower students, staff, visitors and administrators to make decisions that will allow them to increase their chance of survival in the event a violent intruder threatens to cause harm. Those in harm’s way will be shown several strategies to help them make decisions that are best for them given the circumstances. The options available include lockdown strategies, evacuation alternatives, and countering techniques.
Lockdown Strategies: Locking down a classroom involves sheltering in place. Teachers and students can use strategies such as locking doors and windows, barricading doors and windows, pulling shades/blinds, and reducing their visibility. These strategies make occupants of the classroom harder targets and create a space that becomes difficult to enter.
Evacuation Alternatives: Evacuating means leaving the school or the area where the intruder is located. The goal is to put as much time and distance as possible between students and the intruder. Teachers and students will be trained on the evacuation location in the event of a violent intruder situation.
Countering Techniques: Countering involves fighting back as a last resort. In cases when the ability to lockdown or evacuate are not options or when an intruder breaches a secured area, countering can increase the chance of survival. Teachers and students can throw objects as distraction devices, move around and create chaos and confusion, or use physical means to stop the intruder. The goal is to be a difficult, dynamic target.

Open Mic Night to be Benefit for Kenny Clark
Open Mic Night is a new event for Vermilion, making its debut on Friday evening, taking place at the Vermilion campus of the Open Door Church. The Church is located in the old Vermilion Schools administration building at 1230 Beechview Drive in Vermilion.
It is the brain-storming result of Pastor Bob Gardner and local Vermilionite Sid Jordan. Sid had been wanting to “carry-over” the musical atmosphere of Third Thursdays, which takes place during the months of May through September each summer season downtown. He shared his thoughts with Pastor Gardner, and the idea of “Open Mic Night” was born. The Church of the Open Door has a wonderfully decorated large indoor café that is the perfect atmosphere for such an event.
The Open Mic Night of Friday, January 30th (7:00 – 10:00 pm) will be a benefit for local country singer Kenny Clark. Kenny suffers from pseudomyxoma peritoneii, a rare cancer of the abdominal cavity. On December 18th, Kenny had his third surgery and is now at homing recuperating. However, his recuperation has been complicated by a staph infection and pneumonia. Kenny’s wife, Racheal, has taken a leave of absence from her job in order to care for Kenny which creates a short-fall in the family’s income. Currently, the antibiotics that Kenny must take while at home, are very, very expensive and are not covered by Medicare. All funds raised on Friday night will go to the Clark family.
Get out of the house for a fun, musical evening while helping a local family in need. Some food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Scholastic Games Radio Quiz Series Enters 25th Season
The radio quiz program featuring academic teams from Lorain County high schools will begin its twenty-fifth year on the radio with the program to be heard Monday evening, January 26th.
The Scholastic Games of Lorain County, which first aired in the fall of 1990, showcases the knowledge of area students each week from the end of January through May, concluding each school year with playoffs and a county championship. With current official sponsorship of the Educational Service Center of Lorain County, veteran announcer Jim Mehrling continues to produce and host the show, as he has from the outset with the support of area foundations and radio station WEOL (AM 930).
Over the years, virtually all of the high schools in Lorain county have taken part in the competitions, with sixteen schools, public and private, on the schedule for 2015. Mehrling reports that outstanding students have come from all parts of the region, noting that twelve different schools have been championship winners. All schools that draw students from Lorain County are eligible to participate, including Vermilion and Olmsted Falls, both of which have districts that cross county lines. Elyria and Olmsted Falls have won the most championships.
Vermilion High is one of the participants in the program (and won the county championship in 2007 and 2008).
The program’s initial sponsor was the Nordson Corporation Foundation, which Mehrling credits with being the spark that really got the project started. The schools and community quickly came aboard, and support followed from the Community Foundation of Lorain County, the Nord Family Foundation, the Stocker Foundation and others. WEOL, where Mehrling had previously been Chief Announcer, generously provided air time, considering the broadcast to complement the station’s broadcasts of high school sports and other community events. The Elyria Public Library System has sponsored the program on the station the past several years.
The program features five rounds of competition, focusing on questions of general knowledge, history, science, literature and other academic disciplines. Also noteworthy is the plan by which each participating school will receive a $1000 credit to be given to a deserving student from an area college or university, an increase from previous years. Additional credits are awarded to schools as they win and compete in playoffs. Contributing institutions include Ashland University, Baldwin-Wallace, Case Western Reserve, Heidelberg, John Carroll, Lorain County Community, Notre Dame College of Ohio, Oberlin, Ohio Wesleyan, Tiffin University, and Ursuline. At least $25,000 will be designated for such awards this year, an all-time record.
As in the past several years, this year’s programs will air on Monday evenings from 6:05 to 7 p.m. having been previously recorded on various Sunday afternoons at facilities provided by the Elyria Public Library and the Elyria Ramada Inn. Here is the schedule of broadcasts for this year:
Midview vs. Oberlin-will air 1/26 (1st 3 shows pre-record 1/25, Ramada)
Keystone vs. Avon – will air 2/2
Elyria Catholic vs. Brookside – will air 2/9
Avon Lake vs. Amherst - 2/16 (2nd 3 shows pre-record 2/1, Ramada)
Lake Ridge Academy vs. Vermilion –2/23
Clearview vs. Firelands – 3/2
Olmsted Falls vs. Elyria – 3/9 (pre-records at Elyria Lib. Main Branch 2/22)
North Ridgeville vs. Lorain –3/16 (Elyria Lib. Main Branch 2/22)
Subsequent programs feature returning teams for playoffs.
Last spring Olmsted Falls entered the record book by winning its fourth consecutive championship, though Elyria still holds the record for most championships won (5). Other championship winners have been Amherst Steele, Lake Ridge Academy, Admiral King, Oberlin, North Ridgeville, Avon Lake, Midview, Keystone, Vermilion and Avon.
Community Foundation of Lorain County support has come from a number of local families and organizations that are committed to educational excellence. This year, supporters include the Del Lumber Fund, the Maria and Ruben Escuro Family Fund, the Dr. Howard A. and Pearl L. Keiser Living Memorial Fund, the Bill Starbuck Fund, the Stocker Foundation Fund, and the Florencia and Lily Yuzon Fund. Following broadcast, weol.com and standoutscholars.com offer the programs as “podcasts.”
The producer, Jim Mehrling, has been a northeast Ohio broadcaster since the 1970s when he was Chief Announcer at WEOL. After that he spent 13 years at Cleveland’s WERE-AM and has been Production Manager at Cleveland’s WCLV-FM for over 20 years.. He is also a member of the Broadcasters Hall of Fame of Akron and Cleveland. Again this year, most programs are being followed by a talk feature, “Dialogues in Education,” highlighting education success stories and hosted by award-winning journalist Bob Tayek.
Here are a few "green tips"
about your health.
Homeopathic vs. Manufactured Pharmaceuticals
Consider using homeopathic medicines instead of over-the-counter or prescription pharmaceuticals to treat medical conditions. The process of manufacturing synthetic drugs emits more than 177 million pounds of untreated pollutants into air, water, and soil resources each year. If just 5 percent of the population could find a homeopathic remedy for half their medication needs, fewer pollutants (4.4 million pounds worth) would make it into the water system.
Fill only those prescriptions you're sure you will use, and never flush unused or expired prescriptions down the toilet or drain. Pharmaceuticals in waste water have been found to damage plants, fish, and animals. Because so much medicine is wasted, if the average patient over age 65 who fills twenty-four prescripitions annually purchased only those drugs that would be fully consumed, he or she could save $70 per year at the pharmacy. From all patients, the amount of medication saved could fill a giant 45 foot tall medicine bottle each year.
You can save money and packaging waste if you buy a multivitamin rather than separate bottles of individual vitamins. The average American vitamin user spends over $100 each year on vitamins and supplements. If one-quarter of vitamin consumers reduced their purchases by just one bottle per year, the estimated total savings would be $592 million and 103 stacks of plastic bottles, each tall enough to reach the top of the ozone layer.
5 Big Overlooked Tax Deductions
Tax season is upon us and you might be asking what can you still do that can potentially reduce your overall tax liability. Here are 5 BIG overlooked tax deductions that people often don’t ask about or overlook come tax time.
1. Charitable Mileage
Most taxpayers are very good at keeping receipts of their cash donations that they make to the organizations they donate to during the course of the year. One of the deductions few taxpayers pay attention to is the charitable mileage deduction. For 2014, you can deduct .14 cents per mile driven for rendering gratuitous services for charitable organizations. Don’t forget fees and tolls as well. Consider the amount of time that you give gratuitously during the course of the year for your religious organizations, charitable causes you support, or possibly coaching one of your kid’s teams.
2. Non-Cash Charitable Contributions
Most taxpayers literally get a blank receipt from the Salvation Army, Goodwill, or some other charitable organization and then tell their accountants that they donated a bag or two for $50. What a huge mistake!! The reason you have the blank receipt is to itemize everything you give away line by line to maximize the legitimate deduction. You can review the Salvation Army’s list of low and high value per item here, but you need to really examine the true fair market value of each item. Make sure you have good documentation and receipts to back up your claims.
3. Form 2106 (Unreimbursed Employee Expenses)
If you look at the number at the bottom of page one of your personal tax return you will see an amount called your adjusted gross income. This is an important number because it sets the bar on other potential deductions you can take. Since employers today are reimbursing less and less employee expenses, you should keep very close track of your unreimbursed employee expenses. You must make sure the expenses are for ordinary and necessary items that help you carry on your normal trade. You can see an entire list of possible deductions in Publication 529. This could be a big one come year end.
4. Job Changing Expenses
Did you spend money this year for a job search in your current occupation? If so, you may be able to deduct employment and outplacement agency fees, costs to mail and prepare resumes, and even travel expenses. There are specific rules about this if on the IRS website, and these expenses may be deductible on your itemized deductions section on Schedule A of your tax return. Definitely consult your tax preparer on this one.
5. Home Office Deduction
It has been discussed often that taking this deduction would surely raise a red flag with the IRS, so don’t do it. Actually, if your home office is a) your regular place of business and b) the space in your home is used regularly and exclusively for your business, you could be entitled to a deduction. The IRS recently introduced a simplified home office deduction option for $5 a square foot to a maximum of 300 square feet to make this process much simpler.

Here's a recent quote from Jane, a member of our Silver Sneakers class: "My orthopedic surgeon could not be happier with my progress after a knee replacement. He credits my rapid recovery to the Silver Sneakers program at the Vermilion Y. My success, before and after the surgery, was a major result of Silver Sneakers class and (the instructor) Mary's guidance there. Thank you, Mary!" Speaking of classes, we just started Yoga Silver! It's a combination of chair and standing postures and stretching, and we've gotten great feedback so far. This class runs once a week, and is in addition to our other great class offerings for Active Older Adults. Call the branch for more info!

Snow Day Information
There are many other ways that we communicate with parents and the community about school closings:
*Local television and radio stations
*Visit our website at www.vermilionschools.org
*“Like” our Facebook page
*"Follow" us on Twitter. For the earliest notification, follow the Superintendent's Twitter account: pic.twitter.com/yfki4BAAmJ

Emergency Closing Procedures
This year our official first snowfall of the season came much sooner than expected this year, but our crews were prepared and worked hard to make sure driveways, parking lots and sidewalks were safe for students and visitors. We frequently get questions about how the decision is made to close our schools during a weather event or other emergency. In general, parents should know that closing school is a serious matter. As you might expect, each situation is different, and usually involves a team of trained individuals who work together to determine the best course of action on that specific day. School will not always be closed due to low temperatures, or a light snowfall. During weather events we look at weather forecasts, travel the streets to evaluate road conditions and communicate with City officials and the police department in an effort to determine whether school should remain open. Our goal is always to make the decision as early as possible so that staff and students can be notified before they begin traveling.
