EPL Updates Policies to Require Youth Chaperones After School

Euclid Public Library strives to foster a welcoming environment while encouraging patrons to use the facility and its resources for learning and enrichment.  To preserve that opportunity, the library expects patrons to be respectful of each other and behave in a manner that does not disrupt other patrons or staff. In the past several years, we have taken a number of significant steps designed to improve the learning environment – and indeed the safety – at our library.  We have hired additional staff and police to supervise the building, increased after school programming, improved our safety and security technology, and more.  

Unfortunately, since the beginning of 2017, the library has experienced a sharp increase in disruptive behavior during after-school hours that has prevented the library from serving as a safe space for all library users.  There have been multiple harmful incidents involving youth, including fights, vandalism, assaults on police officers, and inappropriate computer usage.  This kind of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

As a result, the Euclid Public Library Board of Trustees has approved several amendments to our Library Code of Conduct and Unattended Children policies. Effective March 1st:

Spine Friendly Gardening Tips

Gardening can be a fun hobby, healthy activity, and helps get you out of the house after a long winter! There are a few things to keep in mind while getting out into the garden to help avoid back pain. After being held in the house all winter your back will thank you if you stretch, especially in the direction of any activity you will be doing that day. Before you get started, make sure your tools are sharpened. As you get started with the real work, use shorter strokes with your tools and take a few extra breaks until you get back into the swing of things. It’s a good idea to switch positions or take a break every 20-30 minutes. If you are going to be down near the ground for a long time, sit on a stool! Extreme bending for 2 hours isn’t great for even a “good” spine. Keep a good posture as often as possible, and remember that bending and twisting at the same time is a bad for your spine. When lifting, keep heavier objects close to your body, and tighten up your abs to take pressure off of your spine. Use a wheelbarrow or get some help if you are unsure or think there is a risk of injury. If you get persistent low back or neck pain after tilling the garden, then it is a good idea to get the spine checked out! Call our office for an appointment at 216-938-7889 or check us out on our website infieldchiropracticclinic.com. We are located in downtown Euclid, feel free to stop by and check us out!

Rose-Mary Enhances Care for Children

Rose-Mary is transforming the way it provides for children with developmental disabilities in Cuyahoga County. The agency recently transferred all of its residents who resided at the main facility into seven new innovative community homes, and it is expanding trauma responsive care training to all employees. 

The seven new community homes, which were opened during the second half of 2016 at locations throughout Cuyahoga County, each house four to six children or young adults. Previously, all of Rose-Mary’s young residents lived in the Rose-Mary Center in Euclid. The change from a single, large facility to multiple smaller homes will help better integrate the children with their communities. Further, Rose-Mary staff members at each location will be able to develop programs specific to their homes. This will help them build stronger relationships with the children and their families. 

“We are continuing the ministry that is Rose-Mary, and moving it forward,” said Gina Kerman, Executive Director at Rose-Mary. “We believe that all people should have a place to call home, whether or not they have a disability. We work with the children and adults to form connections that are only possible by shopping, working, and playing in the communities where they live, just like we do.”

Bobís Corner

He had just lost the love of his life, and he came to the Center because he didn’t want to be alone. His feelings and emotions were raw. They went from relief that the suffering was over, to anger and a horrible feeling of emptiness. Twenty-six years together is a long time.

During that time, they had shared everything in life. Good times, and bad. Happy and sad. It has been said that everyone needs a witness to their life and his had died, just this morning.

We talked about the belief that birth and death are opposites, but there is no opposite to life. We talked about life going on, but in a different form that we cannot see. We spoke about the gift that life together had been, and how it is better that the suffering is now over.

Revocable Living Trusts

Wills alone  do not provide tax benefits, whereas Revocable Living Trusts do!

Revocable Living Trusts include specific provisions to be implemented when a spouse becomes legally incapacitated, incompetent, or dies, and how estate assets can be managed by a surviving spouse or other Successor Trustee, including important provisions for spouses, children and other loved ones. 

A Revocable Living Trust is a contract between one or more individuals, also called maker(s), Trustor(s) or Grantor(s), and the Trustee.  The Trustor provides detailed instructions concerning the retention and disposition of all trust assets.  These instructions specify how the assets are to be held and distributed during the maker’s lifetime, and during disability or incapacity, as well as upon death.  The term "Revocable" means that the Trustor, or maker, has the legal reservation, right, and ability, to amend or revoke the trust as he or she directs.  The maker(s) may also be the Trustee(s).
