GHBA Remodelers Council: Make home presentable for sale
If your roof is bad or your air conditioning system isn't working properly, potential buyers may assume the rest of the house needs work as well. Pay attention to what other houses for sale in your area are offering. First impressions matter. The smell of new carpet and new paint can have a positive psychological effect on your prospective buyer. Repair any weathered or damaged wood, point-up mortar joints if brick and remove all obsolete cables, screws, hooks, etc. If your yard is boring or barren, consider a simple patio deck, add a few inexpensive plants or update existing landscaping. Return function to spaces that you may have changed such as a bedroom becoming a crafts room - turn it back into a bedroom.

United Way of Greater Cleveland CEO says fund-raising efforts and other changes are coming
United Way of Greater Cleveland President and CEO August Napoli on Friday, Feb. 17, 2017, spoke at the City Club of Cleveland. He told the audience that under his leadership the agency will change its fundraising, enhance its presence in the community and more. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- United Way of Greater Cleveland needs to change how it raises money, enhance its presence in the community, and bring together groups to focus on solutions to major social issues such as infant mortality and lead exposure, the head of the agency said. President and CEO August Napoli, speaking to a group of business and civic leaders at the City Club of Cleveland on Friday, said the way in which United Way "conducts philanthropy" hasn't changed much since the early days of the organization. Given the needs, he said, change is needed now. "Today, roughly a century after our founders created an innovative new model of collaborative philanthropy, we are ready to pioneer a new, 21st century philanthropy -- one that begins to get at the root causes of poverty in addition to responding to their effects," Napoli said. He has lead United Way since June, 2016, replacing Bill Kitson who resigned. Napoli has been deputy director and chief advancement officer at the Cleveland Museum of Art and has worked in Cleveland institutions for most of the past 40 years, including at Cleveland State University, the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Foundation and the Cleveland Clinic. He said the agency's fund-raising efforts need updating. "For 103 years, the United Way has been known for the workplace campaign. For 103 years, bosses have encouraged, and even strongly encouraged their employees to participate in the annual campaign," Napoli said. But Cleveland's corporate landscape has changed, he said. "There just aren't that many 1,000-plus employee companies here anymore." He said the agency needs to expand beyond the workplace campaign and recognize that people who donate are much more savvy than in the past. "Donor choice, donor designation, donor empowerment is not on the horizon," he said. "It is here and a reality that seems to have eluded us to date." In the past few years, the United Way has streamlined its mission and partnered with businesses and social service agencies to put a laser sharp focus on improving education, income and health in the community. The agency has a representative in 25 Cleveland Metropolitan School District Schools to "wade through the complexities of being poor" and get kids and families the help they need, said the United Way website. Its 2-1-1 Help Center, with information and referral specialists, provides free and confidential 24-hour access to people who need food, shelter and heat, along with non-emergency assistance such as tax preparation. Napoli said the service connects upwards of 300,000 a year. "As wonderful an organization as United Way is, I didn't come here to do business as usual, or simply continue what's been done before," Napoli said. "My goal is to take the best of what's been done before and meld it with a clear sense of what needs to be done."

How technology could change Ohio, according to Gov. John Kasich
Transportation, health care and job training were among the topics Gov. John Kasich discussed Monday to discuss technology and the 2018-19 state budget. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Gov. John Kasich wants Ohio to move forward in technology and shake being part of the "Rust Belt," he said Monday at Case Western Reserve University. An event at Case's think(box), a collaboration and resource center for entrepreneurship and technology, was designed to show how the governor's budget proposal would help Ohio use innovation in everything from rush-hour traffic to health services. That includes lower speed limits at high-traffic times and centralizing non-emergency medical transport. "Who wants to live with rust?" Kasich said. "I want us to be viewed as being in the 'Knowledge Belt,' which is frankly where we are increasingly living."  Various officials, including the directors of the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Department for Developmental Disabilities, talked about some of the initiatives. Take a look at what Kasich said about his ideas. To read more details on the budget, which has been introduced to the statehouse, click here.  Transportation Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jerry Wray said among proposals in the budget is the idea of allowing ODOT to raise or lower speed limits and part-time use of road shoulders as driving lanes. This would be based on different conditions -- think rush hour or a bad snowstorm.  If approved, variable speed limits would be first tested in Columbus.  Wray also talked about the "smart highway" effort, which would include adding technology to I-90 to make it a testing ground for automated transportation. Read more about that here.  In mass transit, the system must change to meet peoples' needs, Kasich said. When looking at buses, you almost always see empty spots.  "We need to think about ways to use data analytics, the patterns people follow, to make sure we get them to where they want to get to, not where it's not very relevant anymore," he said. Jobs Kasich led off his remarks by moving operations into Ohio, including Nestle, Amazon Cloud computing and IBM data analytics.  The state still values manufacturing, but the job training needs even in that field are changing, he said. This means making sure that people get the help they need to move into these careers. "We've not been aggressive enough in being able to retrain people; it's going to be completely essential here," Kasich said. He did not identify a proposal in the budget that would address this problem. Health care Greg Moody, director of the Office of Health Transformation, said the state wants to centralize non-emergency medical transportation for those on Medicaid.  Right now, programs are county-administered, which can lead to confusion and occasionally having to switch transportation, Moody said. The state would first standardize companies qualified to provide transportation, then name a state broker who would connect patients with providers, he said.  Ohio is seeking to expand access to technology that helps people with disabilities, said Department of Developmental Disabilities Director John Martin. As an example, he talked about remote sensors that would allow people with disabilities to live independently while giving loved ones alerts of variations in routines or medical problems. The proposed budget would add $122 million over two years toward efforts to serve people with developmental disabilities.  Education Education systems have to adapt to new demands and new jobs that come along with technological advances, Kasich said.  "I'm so proud of what we've done in Cleveland, but our education is 100 years old," he said. "Many times in America today, education gets in the way of learning." This includes adding innovation in public education that gives students real-world skills and job training in the field, he said. He also said that if universities don't adjust to better serve students and make sure they're trained for jobs they love and can find, they'll end up being beaten out by alternative education.  One problem is rising college costs, he said. A proposal in the budget would freeze tuition at public two and four-year colleges for two more years. Take a look at other education measures in the budget here.

Painesville's Latino community rallies around neighbor after brain surgery (photos)
Five months ago, Juan was diagnosed with xanthoastrocytoma, a type of brain cancer. He had complications from surgery and is now unable to talk or walk. The Latino community has rallied round the family, and is holding a fundraiser on Saturday evening, 5-8 p.m., at the K of C Hall, 987 Mentor Avenue, Painesville. PAINESVILLE, Ohio - Juan Horta sits in a comfy chair in the living room, his plaid flannel pajama pants pooling over his feet. He stares at the TV screen, but he doesn't seem to be watching the cartoons that are on for his nephews. The left side of his face looks sadder than the right. The side of his mouth droops into a frown, and his left eyelid is a bit lower. The purple adapter end of a feeding tube rests on his black T-shirt. A year ago, Horta, 32, a factory and nursery worker, began having headaches. They weren't much at first, but got progressively more severe. Horta's brother, Caesar, took Juan to a clinic, but Juan doesn't have insurance. Eventually, the pain was so bad they went to the emergency room. Juan was diagnosed with xanthoastrocytoma, an uncommon and aggressive brain tumor. Stage three. A surgeon at University Hospitals removed the tumor, and Juan was sent to a nursing home to recover. Caesar, and his mother, Maria Guillen, visited daily. They noticed what Caesar called "a ball" on the back of Juan's neck, and it was getting bigger by the day. On the fifth day, Juan was unresponsive. The "ball" was filled with cerebrospinal fluid, and Juan needed another surgery to insert a shunt. A spokesperson for University Hospitals confirmed the hospital spends millions annually on charity care for people who, like Juan, are uninsured. UH also created the Medical Access Clinic to care for patients who are uninsured. Caesar said it has been difficult to watch his brother go through this. Five months ago, Juan was strong and hard-working. "It took us by surprise that he needed this brain surgery," he says, sitting on the sofa next to his wife, Amelia, and across from Juan. "Then, to see how he was when he came out of surgery -- unable to speak or walk or eat. Because he has no insurance, he has had no radiation, no chemo." Juan's family came to the United States from San Pablo, Mexico, and his family is here legally, "working hard and paying taxes," says Veronica Dahlberg, founder and executive director of HOLA, a Latino outreach and advocacy organization headquartered in Painesville. Juan, however, is an undocumented immigrant. "It's complex, and there is so much hate and political rancor around this issue," she says. "Juan has the proper avenues open to him to get citizenship." As an undocumented immigrant, he is not qualified for public benefits, including Medicaid. Government programs require proof of legal immigration. Once that proof is supplied, it is still five years before immigrants can apply for assistance. "Our nursery and agriculture industry depends on workers like Juan," Dahlberg says, sitting on a loveseat in the Horta living room. "It's an $85 million industry in Lake County alone. It is only fair that the workers should be able to get medical treatment when they need it, but that's not always the case, as we see here,'' she said. According to undocumentedpatients.org, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) states that "any patient arriving at the Emergency Department of a hospital participating in the Medicaid Program must be given an initial screening, and, if found to be in need of emergency room treatment, or in active labor, must be treated until stable." The law does not require facilities to provide additional treatment, such as radiation or chemotherapy. Caesar walks over and grabs Juan by the shoulders. He leans him forward in the chair, drapes Juan's right arm over his shoulder, then grabs him under the arms and lifts him to his feet. Caesar tries to get Juan up and moving to keep his blood flowing and to keep him from losing more strength. They head slowly toward a large wooden crucifix, the focal point of the dark living room. Caesar uses his own legs to move Juan's. After three steps, they turn back around, and Caesar stops to hitch up the pajamas that Juan's wasted frame is refusing to hold up. Three more steps, and Caesar lowers Juan back into the chair. "I don't know, sometimes we have a lot of hope that maybe he could get better, and sometimes we see him and," Caesar pauses, and drops his voice. "sometimes we think maybe not." Maria comes over and takes Juan's strong hand in hers. She wipes some saliva from the corner of his mouth.  "Siento tanta tristeza." "I am so sad," she says, looking down into her son's dark brown eyes. Juan hears this and begins to cry. Maria comes in close, puts her face on his cheek and he begins to sob, his face a mask of grief. "Cry it out, miho, go ahead, get it out," she tells him as she holds him tightly. He wails like a child in his mother's arms. Caesar wipes Juan's tears, then leans in to hug them both. "Cry, scream, get it out," Caesar says. In no time, the whole family is weeping. "He is so frustrated," Caesar says, swiping at his own eyes. "He wants to tell his own story. He wants to walk and talk and eat and go back to work." Juan's co-workers are trying hard to help their friend. They are selling food at work to try to raise money to help meet his medical needs. They want Juan to be able to have nursing services and get physical therapy at home. They want to help pay for the Nutren 2.0, liquid nutrition that is inserted into Juan's feeding tube. A case of 24 one-meal cartons is $43.00 through Amazon, Caesar says. That lasts for four days. As word of Juan's illness spreads, more people in the close-knit Painesville community step forward. They have donated a hospital bed, a wheelchair and a walker. Others stop by to visit. The choir of St. Mary Catholic Church in Painesville came by to sing and pray. On Tuesday, nearly 100 people gathered at HOLA headquarters in Painesville. They came to talk about issues important to the community, and to finalize preparations for a fundraiser for Juan. Dahlberg steps to the front of the room. "Bienvenidos a todos," she says with a smile. "Welcome, everyone!" She tells the group, in Spanish and in English, that she just came from visiting Juan and his family. Everyone listens in silence, then Blanca Mata and Rosario Chavez step to the front to hammer out the details of the upcoming fiesta for Juan. Who will cook the tamales, posole, tostadas, quesadillas and taquitos. Who will bring Mexican chocolate or baked goods.  "We also need help for cleanup," Chavez says, her eyes scanning the room. "People will be coming in and out, and we will need people to clean up and handle the trash in between crowds. And we will need cleanup at the end of the night, too." A young woman offers to make streamers of flowers to hang from the ceiling to add a festive Valentine atmosphere, and a man walks in with an armload of themed baskets for the raffles. Cecilia Mendez stands and asks if it might be possible to start a "Go Fund Me" for Juan. "I think it is admirable that we are together, doing this at a time of so much stress and tension," she says. "If we keep doing good things, in time, we can hope to make a difference. We need to have some courage." A woman named Nancy, tucked into a corner of the room, agrees. "Do not get carried away thinking all Americans are racist," she says. "As we are seeing here tonight, that is not the case." The crowd, a mixture of colors, looks around the room at one other. A group of students from Hawken School blush and smile.Mata tells the group to contact her with any more donations for the raffles. "As a community, we want to come together to help them out," she says, hoping to drum up more help. "This time it's for Juan. We have done this for others many times before. And, who knows? Maybe next time..." Her voice trails off, but everyone understands the unspoken words. The fundraiser will be held Saturday, at the Painesville Knights of Columbus, 987 Mentor Avenue, from 5-10 pm. Admission is free. Tickets for food or raffle are one dollar, or six for five dollars. Dahlberg says that if you prefer to have a festive Valentine Saturday at home, food is available to go. Cash donations can be made through holatoday.org. They are not tax deductible.

Future of Nexus pipeline still uncertain following resignation of federal commissioner
The inaction by a federal agency to approve a request to certify the Nexus pipeline before last Friday is seen as a victory by an anti-pipeline group. Residents opposed to the proposed Nexus pipeline have planted signs on their lawns, such as this one in Medina County. (Gus Chan / Plain Dealer)Michael Sangiacomo, The Plain Dealer  MEDINA, Ohio -- Inaction by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in approving the proposed Nexus pipeline before one of the commissioners retired last week was good news to area residents who oppose the project. "This lack of action by the (FERC) commission can be viewed as confirmation on our position that there is no purpose or need for Nexus," said Paul Gierosky, co-founder of the Coalition to Reroute Nexus [CORN], a grassroots group of Medina, Lorain and Summit county landowners that oppose the 255-mile pipeline project. The pipeline would ship natural gas from eastern Ohio to Northern Michigan and Ontario, Canada. But Nexus spokesman Adam Parker said he's confident the project isn't dead. He said in an email that the company is committed to "placing the project in service in the fourth quarter of 2017. We are working with our contractors to ensure a safe and responsible construction plan is in place to achieve it." Nexus had hoped to start pipeline construction early this year and finish by November. Officials said they needed certification of the project in order to start and finish this year. The push to get certification began after news that FERC member Norman Bay was leaving the three-member commission and that a quorum was needed to approve the pipeline. Because no action was taken, certification will be delayed until a new commissioner is appointed and approved by congress, which could take months. CORN representatives said again Monday that every delay in approving the pipeline is a victory. "There is no need for Nexus in Ohio where they have one tiny customer (for the natural gas) representing 3 percent of the capacity of the project," Gierosky said. Last week, CORN asked FERC to deny a request by Nexus owners to fast-track approval of the project. CORN maintains the pipeline would cut through hundreds of private properties in Ohio and Michigan.
