76th Anniversary Of Pearl Harbor Attack Marked At Charlestown Navy Yard

It would be three more years before he would be old enough to enlist in the Navy, but he remembers Dec. 7, 1941, and he remembers the paper ran twice that day once news of the attack broke.

On Thursday, Dr. Garstick stood with members of the Benjamin Firestone Post 290 in Columbiana at the Columbiana Cemetery to honor the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Alongside them stood Legion member Jerry Mong, wearing his late father-in-law Elwood Ziegler’s army uniform in honor of his service during World War II.

Zielger served as 1st lieutenant of the 39th field artillery unit and was stationed in California during the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Bill Snyder, pastor of Beaver Creek Ministries in Rogers, recalled the attack killed more than 2,000 and wounded more than 1,000 people.

Snyder led the prayer during the brief ceremony that included a few minutes of silence that lasted until exactly 12:55 p.m., which is the time the attack began.

“Let us not mar the memory of those who died that day by our indifference and forgetfulness. Rather, help us to always remember Pearl Harbor and help us to keep America alert,” he said.

He went on to say, “We also give thanks for those who survived the attack on our country and who went on with their lives in a way that portrayed honor to a watching world. They continued with life even as deep within them, they carried haunting memories of what they witnessed, heard and felt.”

Legion member Ed Holisky, who served in the Navy, and Sons of the American Legion member Dan Bekar visited the Pearl Harbor site two years ago.

“Seeing it just puts chills up your back. It’s unbelievable,” Holisky said of the memorial and of seeing fuel continue to leak from the USS Arizona, which reportedly just prior to the attack had taken on over a million gallons of fuel in preparation for a scheduled trip.

The Legion ceremony on Thursday also included a gun salute and the playing of Taps. The guns and ammunition used by the Legion are all World War II vintage, Post Sgt. Ken Allcorn said.

By DEANNE JOHNSON Staff Writer SALINEVILLE — The search for the next superintendent at Southern Local has begun. After conducting some action items during a special board meeting on Wednesday, board members went into executive session with the applications of 13 people interested in the position. Board members were not going to take any action on Wednesday, but are expected to determine who will be interviewed among the applicants. The board is replacing John Wilson, who resigned before the end of the school year, reportedly for health reasons. Prior to the executive session, the board approved changes to both the elementary school and the junior/senior high student handbooks. The additions include adding AP courses for American history and English 12 at the high school. It also spells out the policy implemented part way through last school year regarding students not being allowed to carry bookbags and backpacks between classes during the school day, with the possible exception of gym clothes to gym class. The requirement to be considered for National Honor Society increased from a 3.0 grade point average to a 3.3 GPA. Finally, the policies were adjusted regarding how medications can be distributed. At the elementary school, the handbook was adjusted to include information regarding the Students with Disability Act and the education of homeless students. Additionally, it changed the discipline levels to include the possibility of in school and after school suspension on the first offense depending on the severity the offense. Finally, it set how the achievement levels will be marked on report cards at a kindergarten through second grade levels. Prior to the vote, board member Jay Cole noted he would also like to have some discussions in the near future about cell phone usage at school. The board also approved student and staff internet policies. In other matters: — The board assigned Regina Utt to the first grade elementary aide position. — The board approved physical therapy agreements for Kelly Crosby and Amy Purcell for fiscal year 2019. — The board approved the service agreement with OMERESA for fiscal year 2019. — The board approved an agreement with the Jefferson County Educational Service Center to provide special education services for the upcoming year. — The board approved an elementary reward field trip to Kennywood Amusement Park on June 26, with the trip departing at 8:30 a.m. and returning at 8:30 p.m. — The board approved a list of sports supplemental coaching contracts: Brian Spahlinger, junior high wrestling; Bill Watson, high school wrestling assistant; Taylar Jordan, assistant varsity volleyball; Caitlyn Davis, freshman volleyball; Hannah Brothers, eighth grade volleyball; Crystal Miller, varsity girls assistant basketball; Kyler Woodward, junior varsity girls basketball; Dennis Bowers, eighth grade girls basketball; Stephen Grimm, varsity assistant boys basketball; Kyle Exline, JV boys basketball; Jaret Dowling, freshman boys basketball; and Fernando Dechellis, eighth grad boys basketball coach. Board member Kip Dowling abstained from the vote on the coaching contracts. Prior to the vote, Treasurer Greg Sabbato noted Spahlinger and Watson each donated their full $3,000 supplemental contracts last year, which was half of the $12,000 needed for the mats for the wrestling room. Fundraisers in the program covered the remainder needed. djohnson@mojonews.com
