Louisville School Board Work Session

In the second of its kind, the Board addressed four issues and accepted comments from approximately 20 people in attendance at the 6 p.m., July 13 Middle School meeting. 
Superintendent Michele Shafffer told of the most recent directives from Governor DeWine for school to reopen and indicated that changes are occurring daily. Superintendents and a health department nurse at their July 9 teleconference meeting resolved to three options: all back in classrooms, all online, 50 percent in school with 50 percent on line.  Each school district will be rated based on their county's color coded condition. Sanitizing, cleaning, and a safe atmosphere are of utmost importance. Social distancing will in some settings utilize gyms, and auditorias for classrooms. The reset and restart committee meets each Tuesday and plan to have the final plans ready for release to parents on July 24. 
Leopards Helping Leopards is gearing up and continues to receive donations for the full belly program, which along with the Community Cupboard, saw a dip in usage during the shut down. The program provides food for those in need.
Levy Survey Results
A total of 533 responses resulted in an 85.4 percent approval of the 6.7 mill levy, 8.8 percent favoring the 6.2 mill option and just 6 percent in favor of the 5.7 mill option. There was no tracking of the source of the results. The survey went to all addresses in the 44641 zip code. The monthly cost of the three options on a $100,000 property would be $19.54, $18.08, $16.63 respectively.  
November Ballot Issue. The Board must act by the August 5 deadline to place. a levy on the November 3 ballot. The Board does not have a regular meeting until August 10, so they will have to schedule a special meeting in order to get on the ballot.

Statement from Governor Mike DeWine on the March 17, 2020 Election

(COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 16)—Governor DeWine announced tonight the following: 

“During this time when we face an unprecedented public health crisis, to conduct an election tomorrow would would force poll workers and voters to place themselves at a unacceptable health risk of contracting coronavirus. As such, Health Director Dr. Amy Acton will order the polls closed as a health emergency. While the polls will be closed tomorrow, Secretary of State Frank LaRose will seek a remedy through the courts to extend voting options so that every voter who wants to vote will be granted that opportunity.”

Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D., MPH issued an order regarding Closure of the Polling Locations in the State of Ohio on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Details of that order can be read here: https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/OHOOD/2020/03/17/file_attachments/1402754/Director%27s%20Order%20Closure%20of%20the%20Polling%20Locations.pdf.

OHSAA TOURNAMENTS to Continue with Limited Spectators
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has ordered most spectators to be kept away from indoor sporting events

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced Tuesday afternoon that all indoor sporting events in Ohio, including high school, collegiate and professional sports, shall continue without most spectators in attendance as Ohio seeks to contain the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.

“This will be a very difficult time for our schools and fans, but we cannot ignore the directive of the Governor,” OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass said. “We are pleased that our tournaments can continue and we will soon determine who can attend. However, we can already say that it will most likely be no more than the immediate family of the student-athletes participating in the event.”

Boys basketball regional tournament games scheduled for Tuesday night can proceed with fans. The OHSAA will announce Wednesday morning how the tournaments will proceed moving forward.

More information will be released as soon as possible, including the process for tickets already sold and what kind of media coverage will be permitted at the state tournaments.

The OHSAA girls basketball state tournament begins Thursday at St. John Arena, the wrestling state tournament begins Friday at the Schottenstein Center and the ice hockey state tournament begins Saturday morning at Nationwide Arena.

HOF dates step on other local events

Letter to the Editor

There is an elephant walking across Stark County literally smashing everything in its path. I refer to some recent information that the HOF Organization has chosen to have the Grand Parade on Saturday, August 8th, which also happens to be the day of the Alliance Carnation Parade. I cannot speak for those in charge of that event but I can speak for Louisville and our event(s). Traditionally our Queen and Court entered in and have been proud to be part of this Grand Parade as well as the Alliance Parade.  

Also recently reported is the fact that the HOF decided to put an event on Friday evening, September 18th and asked (or did they suggest) that local high school football games be moved to Thursday. This just happens to coincide with our Constitution Celebration which, by the way, has been held basically the same week since 1953.

Since its inception we have held our events, starting with the Louisville Community Choir Concert on Sunday, the Prayer Breakfast on Wednesday, a Queen and Court contestant intro on Tuesday, the Community Banquet of Wednesday, and the Queen Pageant on Thursday. The dates of this event are always circled around September 17th, the actual date of Louisville being designated Constitution Town by then President Dwight Eisenhower. Our Commemoration/Naturalization Program will, of course, take place on Thursday, September 17th.

I realize that the HOF Celebration is a plus, for not only Canton but Stark County, which has been proven by the number of people who visit our County during those famous events.  

However, I am wondering why the HOF does not consider their surrounding communities and their special celebrations when they are constantly changing the dates of theirs?
