Corporate sponsors such as Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, BASF and 3M Corporation are making it possible for local families to enjoy fireworks, free summer camps and summer concerts in the coming weeks. Mayor Holly Brinda said more than $ 100,000 has been donated by hundreds of individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations. “ Given the city’s very tight budget, we are finding creative ways to work with our community partners to pool our human and programming resources, and raise philanthropic dollars to offer healthy summer programming alternatives,” Brinda said. “ I am so very proud to live in a city where our citizens, businesses, organizations and foundations pull together for the greater good to create opportunities for all of us to share.” Brinda has termed these givers community reinvestment sponsors. Jon Wysochanski The Chronicle- Telegram AVON LAKE — City officials say it’s well- known those renting the Lake House at Veterans Memorial Park would sometimes spike punch with alcohol or stock the refrigerator with beer and wine. The problem? Consuming alcohol at city- owned facilities is against the law. But an ordinance before Council will allow alcohol consumption as long as extra fees are paid and renters hire an off- duty police officer to keep an eye on things. The ordinance, which has support of City Council members and the Parks and Recreation Department, also will legalize alcohol consumption at the Peter Miller House and Folger Home. Curbing sneaking alcohol AVON LAKE Council mulls fees to permit drinking at the Lake House Killer buried with his victim Brad Dicken The Chronicle- Telegram ELYRIA — Mary Dallas was the victim of a brutal beating in 1993 that claimed her life, not an adored wife who would have wanted her killer’s remains buried with her for eternity at Brookdale Cemetery, her daughter said. But to Crystal Denn’s horror, she discovered last month that’s exactly what happened. Denn is now working to have the cremated remains of Marvin Dallas, her mother’s husband and killer, moved from the spot where they were buried earlier this year over Mary Dallas’ grave. “ Why does it make sense to bury a killer with his victim?” said Denn, Mary Dallas’ daughter from a previous marriage. She said she noticed a small patch of overturned earth, now covered with grass, at her mother’s grave a few months ago but didn’t think much of it until she was at the cemetery to visit another grave in May and saw a similar mound of earth that she knew held cremains. Suspicious, Denn checked with the cemetery’s office and learned the cremated remains of Marvin Dallas, who died Jan. 1 at age 60, were now resting with her mother. Elyria Safety Service Director Mary Siwierka said the city, which owns the cemetery, had nothing to do with deciding where to place Marvin Dallas’ cremains. That decision was made by his family, she said, and carried out by Busch Funeral Home in Elyria. “ As a matter of course, husbands and wives, if that’s their wishes, are buried together,” Siwierka said.

See SUMMER, A2 See ALCOHOL, A2 See BURIED, A2 NSA surveillance curtailed Mary Dallas Lisa Mascaro Tribune Washington Bureau WASHINGTON — Congress gave final approval Tuesday to the most sweeping rollback of government surveillance powers in the post- Sept. 11- era, clearing the way for a new program that bans collecting and storing Americans’ telephone dialing records. The Senate’s 67- 32 vote reflected growing concerns about privacy, but also increasing unease among lawmakers that Sunday’s abrupt expiration of the surveillance program, caused by congressional deadlock, posed a national security risk. The new system allows intelligence agencies to access the same kind of call records, but only by requesting the information from telephone companies with a court order. the National Security Agency from INSIDE FBI responsible for mysterious planes surveilling U. S. cities, A3 BUSINESSMAN DIES AT 93 Ted Jacobs was fixture in retail, activism Evan Goodenow The Chronicle- Telegram LORAIN — Ted Jacobs, the longtime clothing store owner known for his perpetual positivity and civic commitment, has died. The 93- year- old Jacobs died Sunday at Main Street Care Center, an Avon Lake nursing home, according to Sheila Evenchik, a friend of Jacobs and his family. Evenchik said Jacobs had been at the home since February 2014 after breaking a hip. Born in Chicago, Jacobs grew up in Lorain, according to the website promoting his 2013 self- published book, “ It’s Up to You! Change Your Attitude, ChangeYour Life.” After graduating from The Ohio State University in 1943, he served as an Army first lieutenant in Europe in World War II. Jacobs opened his first store on West Fourth Street in Lorain in 1950 and later opened stores in the Midway Mall in Elyria and Great Northern Mall in North Olmsted.
