Snowstorm Inspires Kindness From Amherst Neighbors

The big snowstorm that hit us this week might have caused a bit of havoc on the roadways, but it also inspired plenty of kindness from Amherst residents and city workers.

Amherst Ohio SnowAs the snow fell today, the Amherst Facebook Group filled up with thank-you messages and offers from members to help snowed-in neighbors.  In fact, there were more positive, thankful, helpful posts in the group today then we’ve seen in its four-year history.

Below are just a few of the many wonderful posts that members left in the group today.  It really illustrates what a great, friendly community he have here in Amherst, and how our neighbors look out for each other.  Please share this post with your friends to show them how proud you are of Amherst!

I didn’t get a good look at the guy through the snow on his window, but I gotta share this…

I was just out shoveling my driveway and had got to the end where the plows leave all the deep heavy snow. I’m knee deep in this stuff, chipping away at it , when all of the sudden this guy in a flat bed pick up truck pulls up.

He drops his plow and in three sweeps the snow is gone. He never even rolls his window down to get a thank you, just drives off.

Friggin love my town!

–Mark Valenti

Kudos to the city plow driver that angled his plow away from my drive while I was cleaning it. This was between 5:30 and 6:00 tonight on Crosse Rd. Thank You, it was a lot less snow for me to clear.

–Chuck Greulich

this is to Alex Georges-THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY (AND MOMS) HEART FOR PLOWING OUR DRIVEWAY!! IT MEANT THE WORLD TO US!! don’t know if Alex will see this, so if anyone knows him, tell him Jim’s sister says THANK YOU

–Laura Holmes

Anyone who lives in my neighborhood valley drive green forest chestnut lane area I’m going to IGA if you need something please let me know so I can get for you

–Chia M Weinstein

I grew up in Amherst and live in Rocky River now. I was speaking to my landlord this morning who told me that he was recently in Amherst for a wake and got lost. He told me that the people of Amherst were very friendly, helpful, and were even willing to go out of their way to help him find the highway and the church. He said that the people in Amherst were nicer than those in my area! Keep doing what you’re doing Amherst.

–Eleanor Geer

I just wanted to Publicly thank Joe Miller! He is one of the best neighbors ever. I think he has been outside for the past two three hours with his snow blower just going house to house blowing everyone’s driveway in the neighborhood. I know he has done it a couple times already, never stops to ask for a thank you or anything recognition, he just does it. My dad is pretty active for his age, but it makes me feel a lot better for when I am away at college knowing my dad will be taken care of when it snows out because of the people in my neighborhood, especially Joe! So thanks Joe, you are a really great guy, and if you ever need anything do not hesitate to ask.

–Bryan Policz

I am going to be playing on the four wheeler again to day if someone needs their driveway done near valley drive

–Michael Lawcock

It’s so nice to see people pulling together to shovel, snowblow, plow and offer to get groceries. (Hoping more snow days are on the way) Stay warm and safe.

–Gina Welch

A big THANK YOU to the city plow driver who purposely shifted the blade on his plow as NOT to fill our driveway apron with snow! My hubby was out shoveling our driveway and noticed him changing the angle on the blade and s l o w l y plowing by. Thank you!

–Kelly Bradesku

Good call Amherst schools on being proactive and not reactive by closes the schools with plenty of notice…. not so nice out there today… Kudos Mr. Sayers…

Your 2013 Amherst School Board Candidates

amherst ohio school board election

Five candidates are running for three open seats on the Amherst Exempted Village School District this year.  The top three vote-getters in this race will be elected to the school board.

We asked each school board candidate to submit a photo and information to share with Amherst voters on this website.  The candidates below are listed in alphabetical order, by last name.

Election day is Tuesday, November 5.

Teresa Gilles

teresa gillesMy name is Teresa L. Gilles and I am asking for you to re-elect me to the Amherst Exempted Village School District Board of Education on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

I have been on the board for approximately 4 years and would like to continue providing positive input and direction in these difficult economic times. I have a vested interest in the district as a parent and taxpayer. My father, siblings, my three sons and I grew up in Amherst and graduated from Marion L. Steele High School. My professional career, as Main Street Amherst’s Executive Director, provides me invaluable experience in matters of business management and working with the public. These skills can be directly applied to the operation of our school system.

My only agenda is to provide our students with the best possible programs and educational opportunities that will prepare them for their next level of education or vocation and the fast changing world. I am a candidate who is willing to dedicate whatever time necessary to perform my responsibilities at the highest possible level – including a commitment to increasing my knowledge and skills so that I can become a more effective leader and foster a superior level of governance for our school district. Please remember your vote counts and to cast your ballot on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

Robert Kamnikar

bob kamnikarAs a lifelong Amherst resident, I envision a number of contributions that I can make to the school board. These range from hiring teachers, coaches, class selections and organization for capital improvement projects in our school district. I also have a passion for the arts and look forward to contributing to the choir, band and theater programs. Once on board I would like to review policies to see what can be changed to fit the times. In other words, don’t just keep doing what we’ve always done.

Both my wife Sherri and I graduated from Amherst in the early 80’s and then we both attended BGSU.

In high school I played baseball and football. In 1982 I was a part of the first Comet baseball team to ever reach the regional and district games.

At BGSU I studied Construction Management, graduating in 1989.

I’ve worked for over 20 years as a project manager. My assignments have provided me with experience in managing construction for capital projects ranging from Cleveland’s Great Lakes Science Center to church expansions and renovations. This experience provides the school district with an asset familiar with navigating through the complexities of managing the design and construction of improvement projects. I can also help with negotiations of contract renewals.

In 2011 my son Sam and I started our own business, Action Kam, taking photos of various Amherst events. Later that year I was awarded the Crystal Apple Award by Mr. Strohm for my service to the district.

We have three children; Sam, Noah and Jonah who are active participants in extracurriculars like diving, track, Steele News Live (SNL) and theater.

I like hearing what’s on the minds of the kids because isn’t this what it’s ultimately all about…the kids? If we are preaching that the kids are our future, why not let them be part of our future decisions?

My mission is simple, to help the kids!

Valerie Neidert

valerie neidertMy husband Duane and I are the proud parents of two wonderful children and live in the Amherst School District. Since our kids started school, I have been actively involved in volunteering in the schools and the PTO (serving as President, Vice President and Treasurer). I have also worked in all aspects of every campaign and volunteered as the treasurer for the district’s levy campaigns.

In 2006, I was appointed to the school board and then ran for election in 2007. Since then I have worked hard to continue improving education while being fiscally responsible to taxpayers. The current board has accomplished many things including retaining an “excellent” rating by the state of Ohio for the past 11 years. We have also made significant budget reductions to make up for state cuts, namely $3 million to help balance the district’s budget. After streamlining the district, we rallied the community to help secure additional local funding to prevent further cuts.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in business and am the Office Manager for a law firm. I apply that knowledge, along with my passion for education, in my role as school board member. My favorite part of being on the board is participating in the graduation ceremony. It’s so rewarding to see the kids reaching their ultimate goal after years of hard work. It reminds me of why I serve on the board. I’m proud to represent the Amherst Exempted Village Schools and the community and will continue to work hard to protect education and taxpayer dollars. I ask for your vote, so I can continue working for you and the kids of our district.

Joni Poli

joni poliI am a 1984 graduate of Amherst Marion L. Steele and went on to get a bachelor degree in business from Tiffin University. I currently serve the public by working in a Lorain County government office, and have for over 20 years.

I have always felt strongly about giving back and being a part of the school district that I attended. While my son, a 2010 Amherst alumni is about to graduate from college, I volunteered much of my time when he was in school. From fundraisers for soccer to helping run Comet Corner for three years and two years of Prom to Dawn, I enjoy helping where I can. Giving back to the community is important. For the past 7 years I have been volunteering as the Marketing Chair for Main Street Amherst.

What makes me a strong candidate is I will bring new ideas and a fresh face to the board. I sometimes think outside the box and strive to come up with alternative problem solving ideas. I work well with a team or if given a project, can jump start on my own.

Amherst Schools has always been rated one of the best in the county, this year receiving an overall grade of “A”on the school district report card. I am excited to work with the board to continue finding resources to improve our report card grades.

I have a desire to continue, and expand, a strong relationship and open dialog between the school board and the community. Using my real estate tax experience I hope to help anyone with questions they may have in that aspect. In addition, I would like to help find alternative funding for extra curricular activities because as we all know being involved can be quite expensive.

I have a passion to work with the board members and our treasurer to find funds to educate parents and students on anti bullying. No one should ever have to miss a day of school or be afraid to ride the bus due to these circumstances.

As a 2013 graduate of Leadership Lorain County it seems like the perfect time to give what I have to offer to the community through the Amherst school board and it would be an honor to represent each of you.

Old, Forgotten Chamber Unearthed by Workers in Amherst (Photos)

I’d like to tell you about a fascinating discovery that waited beneath our feet in Amherst for nearly a century before being recently uncovered by city workers.

While construction was underway recently on a storm sewer project in the area behind Amherst City Hall and west of the Old Spring, workers broke through into what appears to be an old, forgotten cellar.  The cavernous chamber is constructed with native sandstone bricks, has a wide, arching ceiling, and is partially filled with sediment that accumulated over nearly a hundred years of being buried beneath the earth.

Here are some photographs of the discovery (courtesy of Mark Costilow).  Click on the thumbnails below for larger images:

1 2 3 4 8

Construction crews have stopped work in the area, and the entrance was sealed again in order to protect the discovery.  Local historians and city officials are excited to enter the cellar soon to research any cultural treasures that might be waiting there . . . and to see if it is connected to more hidden rooms or extends further into the ground.

Our city’s rich cultural history is one of the reasons I love being an Amherst resident.  Because of groups like the Amherst Historical Society, there are numerous resources available that let us learn about this area’s amazing history over the last two centuries.  And thanks to information given to me by Matt Nahorn and other members of the AHS, we have a pretty good idea of what this hidden chamber might be.

William Braun was an Amherst resident back in the 1800′s, and he lived in the blue house that is now Five Corners Bed and Breakfast.  At the time, the adjacent Old Spring was an important source of water for the town, and people came from all around to visit it.  William Braun took advantage of the readily available water source at the Old Spring and built a brewery nearby.

William Braun’s brewery was closed in 1894, and the brewery building was torn down.  The old sandstone brewery cellars, however, remained underground.  According to newspaper records from last century, the brewery cellars were sealed during the years of the Great Depression.

Here’s a fascinating snippet from a 1954 newspaper article about the brewery:

“Mr. Braun disbanded his brewery [in 1894]. In order to protect the children who played down by the spring, the big stone building there was torn down for safety reasons. However, the old cellars although covered are still there. One wonders what people will say years from now if they ever uncover these cellars and try to determine what they were used for.

This newspaper article turned out to be quite prophetic, since our discovery of the brewery cellar in 2013 (if that’s indeed what it is) has taken everyone by surprise.


1954 newspaper article by June Alexander (courtesy Amherst Historical Society)

Safety Service Director Mark Costilow was able to enter the chamber after it was uncovered, and he told me that old bottles, cans and other artifacts could be seen strewn on the floor and partially buried in the dirt there.  One can only imagine what kind of forgotten treasures might be waiting in the cellar — and any adjacent, undiscovered rooms — for excavators to discover.

I don’t know when the city plans to re-open the cellar or allow historians to explore the find.  I had nothing to do with its discovery, and I have nothing to do with the decisions that need to be made about preserving it and opening it to researchers.  But if you’re as fascinated by Amherst history as I am, I hope you’ll share this post with your friends and let them know about this amazing discovery that allows us to be even prouder of our shared cultural history.

Williams Showing Real Leadership by Courting Gun Manufacturers in Lorain County

Commissioner Tom Williams Lorain County

Commissioner Tom Williams

I’ve never been afraid to publicly praise Lorain County elected officials for doing a good job, regardless of their political party (here’s a shout-out I gave to a local Democrat for her fiscal responsibility).  Today I’d like to focus on an innovative, outside-the-box proposal from Commissioner Tom Williams for creating more good-paying jobs in Lorain County.

In several states across the country, firearms manufacturers are considering relocating their businesses because of pending gun restriction bills.  These are profitable companies that pay good wages to thousands of workers.  These legal businesses — and the thousands of jobs they bring with them — are going to relocate somewhere.  Commissioner Williams is posing a great question: why not Lorain County?

Williams has drafted letters to firearms manufacturers — such as Beretta, Remington Arms and Magpul Industries — asking them to consider relocating to Lorain County.  He is showcasing Lorain County’s big workforce and its strong manufacturing and labor base in a bid to convince these companies that this is a great place to open shop.

The Bristol gun manufacturing plant in Bristol, Conn. is just one of many firearms makers looking for a new state to move their business.

The Bristol gun manufacturing plant in Bristol, Conn. is just one of many firearms makers looking for a new state to move their business.

“Our state and our region are blessed to have major advantages in tax structure, logistics and workforce,” Williams wrote in the letters.

I’m impressed by the initiative and leadership that Commissioner Williams is taking as he actively courts these companies.  Remember: having a firearm manufacturer in Lorain County wouldn’t mean that more guns would be sold here.  What it would mean is hundreds of new good-paying manufacturing jobs for our residents, more tax revenue for local government, and growth for Lorain County’s economy.

Before Williams sends these letters out to firearms manufacturers in states where gun laws are getting stricter, he is going ask other local elected officials — both Democrats and Republicans — to join him in signing them.  I hope that other local officials — including the other two Lorain County commissioners — will look beyond politics and join Commissioner Williams in encouraging these profitable businesses to bring their thousands of jobs to our county.

If you get the chance, I hope you’ll take a moment to contact Commissioner Tom Williams and thank him for thinking outside of the box and fighting to bring good jobs to Lorain County.

Top 10 Most Popular Amherst, Ohio Facebook Places

amherst ohioFacebook is being used more and more as a platform to share places we’ve visited.  In the City of Amherst, Ohio, people have “checked in” at local places on Facebook thousands of times, and Amherst businesses are quickly learning what a great marketing tool Facebook can be for increasing brand awareness and visitors.  If you have a popular Facebook place page, with lots of “likes” and check-ins, then odds are you are well-known in the community.

Here’s a list of the top 10 most popular Facebook places in Amherst, Ohio as of February, 2013.  Some of the places on this list might surprise you.  These businesses and organizations deserve kudos for doing a great job at using social media for publicity and profit.

Note: I ordered the places on this list based on the number of “likes,” not on the number of “check-ins,” which I think is a better measurement of their popularity.  For instance, the turnpike plaza actually has the most check-ins of any place in Amherst, but that’s because so many thousands of people drive by it every day on the turnpike.

Hello! I was wondering if anyone could pass along some information about any companies or anyone local that could help my husband and I with a project dealing with stump removal and brush clearing? We recently removed a large tree from our front yard and I was just curious if anyone knows of a good company/person to help with the remainder of the job? My husband can probably start the process on his own, I was just curious to see anyone else's experiences. Thanks so much. :)

Anyone have any dealings with termite companies? We had a bunch of trees removed and in some of the rotted stuff are some creepy and suspect looking bugs. I want somebody to come to out and see what they are and make sure that they aren't in my house if they are termites, but I don't want to get taken advantage of since I don't know anything about bugs. Any help appreciated.
