Ashtabula Star Beacon (Newspaper) - December 13, 2012, Ashtabula, Ohio
Thursday december 13,2012 area Star Beacon a As Estrich from Page a4 lie places. Its not Worth the backlash not Worth All the angry letters about taking the Christ out of Christmas i believe in doing just the opposite. But i can to help but speak out about the ugliness of the debate in the City where i live. Almost every Day i pick up a newspaper or turn on the radio and hear another attack on the godless atheists who Are supposedly propagating hate by asking that Public Parks not endorse any religion. Just to be Clear it Isnit just christians launching the attacks. The one that caught my Eye recently in a los Angeles paper was written by a rabbi who used it As an Opportunity to defend the country a religious roots against the god forsaken atheists. The first amendment includes two key clauses. One protects the right of every american to the a a free exercise of his or her religion. The other prohibits a government a a establishment of religion. Together they reflect a philosophy that has served us Well Over the past two centuries that the Best Protection for religion and religious people is to give the individual both the Power and Freedom to practice As they choose and to give the government neither. The idea that not having a religious display in a Public Park threatens religion is to me ludicrous. Christianity is Strong enough in Santa Monica to survive the threat of a handful of atheists. There Are Many Many private places a shopping malls a Block away churchyards front Yards and the rest a a where the birth of Jesus is celebrated. As i write this jews Are celebrating hanukkah. The Way i Learned my jewish history hanukkah is actually a pretty minor Holiday and would be treated that Way if it fell in any month other than december. But in an Effort to see that their children done to feel left out Many jews treat hanukkah with More attention than the a a big holidays that fall in months like september and october. That a their Choice a another aspect of religious Freedom a although i have to Point out that there really is no such thing As a hanukkah Bush. But i done to need to see a menorah in a Public Park to remember that in a jewish. And its hard for me to see the hardship suffered by those who have to look elsewhere for a creche a or simply put one up in their own front Yard. Estrich is a columnist with creators Syndicate. Conneaut City manager wants to rework wages for Volunteer firefighters by Mark Todd staff writer Todd Sta Beacon. Com Conneaut unhappy with the response to emergency Calls City manager Tim Eggleston wants a new pay Structure for the City son Call firefighters. Eggleston at City Council Public safety committee meeting said he is seeking to give personnel at fire station 3 a stipend instead of hourly wages. Some of the 20 station members Are earning Money by showing up for training or doing maintenance work around the station instead of answering medical and fire Calls he said. Eggleston proposes a Flat rate for members tied to certain requirements which could include Call response. A a we re still having prob Parker from Page a4 than a propensity for adopting homeless disabled animals. The simple truth is that it is harder to succeed in life if you Are burdened with unnecessary obstacles from the get go. These would include no father or no Mother in the Home not enough Money a or books or aspirational conversation and a Community culture that As Graglia previously mentioned does not value academic Success. Graglia a head is on the Block As various offended parties demand that he be punished for his observations. But imagine for a moment if Obama had said the same things. What if Obama had said you know african american kids Are As smart As anybody else but As a group they Are disadvantaged because about 70 percent Are born out of Wedlock they Are disadvantaged by neighbors oils and a Community culture that Are often bereft of healthy male role models. If the president uttered these words they would be embraced As irrefutable truths. Who knows How he might alter individual destinies through the simple act of articulating these crucial matters of the human experience. It is laudable to Model behaviour through ones actions. It can be miraculous to put those actions into words that people can take into their own Homes and incorporate into their own hearts. Words As Obama knows deeply Are powerful. And the president has taken Steps to keep promises related to fatherhood. He created a task Force us k a pledge and upgraded a fatherhood website.

Council was leery of the stipend plan believing it could actually discourage those members who regularly answer Calls. On average the City budgets around $50,000 a year for on Call firefighter payroll Eggleston said. Under the stipend plan half of that Money would be earmarked for repairs and maintenance at fire station 3, the manager said. Council members feared the stipend could backfire squelching the morale of the stations dedicated firefighters. The two at Large members John Roach and Neil Larusch suggested the City consider a step system that pegs payment to the number of Calls answered. Officials have said station 3 response began to dip after the City restructured the fire department nearly four years ago. An ambulance was moved to fire station 1, Home to the City a full time firefighters a move that allowed the City to tap into revenues once collected by station 3. The action was resented by Many station 3 members. Earlier this year the administration began a series of monthly meetings to discuss the fire service and also assigned assistant fire chief Steve Sanford to Deal with on Call firefighter concerns.
