Judge sets $10 million bonds for Barberton homicide suspects
BARBERTON: Two suspects in a New Year’s Eve triple homicide appeared Saturday morning in Barberton Municipal Court, where a visiting judge set bond for each man at $10 million.Following the court hearing, retired Barberton Municipal Judge Michael McNulty ordered police to escort Michael Deon Hendon, 22, and his brother, Eric Donta Hendon, 30, both of Akron, to the Summit County Jail.They face arraignments at 1 p.m. Wednesday to face three charges each of aggravated murder in the shooting deaths of John Kohler of Barberton and his 18-year-old stepdaughter, Ashley Carpenter, and his son, David Kohler Carpenter, 14.The teenagers died New Year’s Eve from what autopsies determined to be gunshot wounds to the head. Police have called the incident a home invasion/burglary with the suspects seeking drugs and money. Kohler’s girlfriend, Ronda Blankenship, 38, was also wounded and is recovering at an area hospital.Evidence and the investigation of the crime scene led police to arrest the Hendon brothers on Friday, the same day Kohler died in a hospital from gunshot wounds.Following a review by a Summit County grand jury, the Hendon brothers could face additional charges including potential death penalty specifications.Doug Livingston can be reached at 330-996-3792 or

College help available in Barberton
BARBERTON: When Jason Miller dropped out of Wright State at 18, he thought that waiting tables was going to be his future.That led to selling cars and even working for one day as a temp in a factory before he reversed course and enrolled at the University of Akron. Now he wants to help other adults make the same about face.Miller, 39, is heading the Barberton office of College Now Greater Cleveland, the oldest nonprofit advising service of its kind nationwide.The organization provides counseling services to about 25,000 students and adult learners yearly in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties and at Highland High School in Medina County. It has signed a contract to do the same next year at Akron Public Schools.This, though, is College Now’s first office outside of Cleveland. At a media conference announcing the new partnership on Wednesday, Barberton officials clearly were thrilled that the Magic City was picked for the expansion.This is a “potential game changer,” said Jim Stonkus, executive director of the Barberton Community Foundation, which provided $70,000 to open an office at the Barberton Public Library.Saying “yes” to College Now’s request to come to Barberton was an “extremely easy decision,” said Scot Stevenson, president of the library’s board of trustees.College Now aims to improve the low rate of higher education among adults in Barberton.According to the U.S. Census, just 11 percent of Barberton residents over 25 have bachelor’s degrees, compared to 29 percent of adults in Summit County.Without college or advanced training, many Barberton residents cannot take advantage of the many job openings that are available. Lee Friedman, chief executive office of College Now, said that 70,000 people are unemployed in Northeast Ohio, yet 40,000 jobs are available every day.Many of the positions require training or credentials that the job seekers don’t have, though.Miller will aim to put a dent in that by providing advice on careers, financial aid, postsecondary options. GED programs, scholarships, trade schools and more, officials said Wednesday. He will try to help adults resolve issues that may be keeping them out of higher education, such as debt.“We understand from our experience how their barriers to college completion differ from those of students going to college straight from high school,” Friedman said in a news release.As for Miller, a layoff from his car sales job fueled his re-entry to college in 2008. He got an associate degree in paralegal studies and a bachelor’s degree in public relations at UA.He said he applied for one job — the one he got at College Now.He will be available by appointment from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. The library phone number is 330-745-1194.Carol Biliczky can be reached at or 330-996-3729.

The Scene: In Pursuit of Fun purse swap for Magical Theatre Company
The 80 people who attended Tuesday’s Magical Theatre Company’s Purse Swap: In Pursuit of Fun at Zwisler Hall in Akron not only got a new or gently used purse but a few surprises, too. Guests enjoyed food, wine and a mystery purse raffle as part of the evening. “When I started this four years ago there was no one doing this. It’s unique and it’s a fundraiser that feels like a party,” said co-producer/director Holly Barkdoll. “I really like the fact that there is a theater in Barberton that helps our youth,” added Sue Cianciola. Rose Bakita was swapping a gently used pink purse. “I just want a new one,” she said. Firestone High School student Sarah Hineline and Hoban High School student Klaire Morgenstern helped set up the purses on display. Tracy Deitrick and Erin Winslow returned to the event for a second year.Deb Lemire attended with her daughter, Rachel Kunz. Kunz won a purse picture frame for guessing some of the things fictional character Nancy Drew might have in her purse. Becky Migdal and her friend Beth Heckman each bought 26 raffle tickets. “I’d like to win the Coach purse, but I would be happy to win anything since I never win,” Heckman said. “I liked my purple purse but I never used it so I donated it here,” said Marilyn Swartz. “Mine was brand new but I wanted another one,” said her daughter, Katie Swartz.“I’m a purse person, so it was difficult to go through and find the one I liked the least,” said Mary Lynn Lopez of her donation. Michele Ellis gave her Tignanello purse away. Kay Stonkus moved two weeks ago to Barberton, where Magical Theatre Company is based, and she said, “I am a big supporter of the theater and I’ve taken my kids and grandkids there over the years.”

Shift in student head count confuses finances
The Akron school board on Monday talked perplexing finances, in anticipation of the five-year forecast and awarded construction contracts to patch a leaky Kenmore High School roof and complete the combined $62 million Firestone/Litchfield Community Learning Center.The board approved $13,000 to Weatherproofing Technologies Inc. of Beachwood to repair a leaking gymnasium at Kenmore, one of about 10 schools untouched by a citywide school construction project.Contracts for the combined Firestone/Litchfield project include: $37,818,800 to Dunlop & Johnston Inc. of Valley City for general trades; $10,276,235 to Speelman Electric of Tallmadge; $6,896,000 to the K Company of Akron for heating and cooling; $3,630,800 to Synergy LLC of Akron for plumbing; $2,524,876 to M. Campbell Contracting LLC of Stow for site work; and $709,990 to S.A. Comunale Co. of Barberton for fire protection.After dispensing with general funds, the board heard from Treasurer Jack Pierson, who presented shifting possibilities for how the district’s financial outlook could shape up by the end of May when he submits the biannual five-year forecast, an educated assumption of the district’s financial health.Two factors mystify projections this year. The first is how educators count students. The state next year will require Ohio public schools to count how many students should be at school, or enrollment, instead of how many students show up, or attendance. No longer will schools make a single, critical head count in October, known as count week, but instead submit periodic updates to the state throughout the year.The change will force educators to more “actively” and aggressively update enrollment figures, Pierson said. This includes tracking down truant students, something the school has worked with authorities and court systems to do in the past.“We’re looking to start that up again, hopefully in the fall,” Superintendent David James said of using truancy officers. Pierson added that the state should start notifying schools when families, who do not communicate with schools, enroll students elsewhere.The second factor undermining a solid forecast is how many additional students will leave the city, enroll in charter schools or take public voucher money, deducted from Akron schools, to attend private schools.When Pierson made his first five-year forecast in October, he projected 5,875 students leaving. That figure came in at 6,467 this month. That means 400 additional students unexpectedly left the city and an additional 500 who still live in Akron now attend school elsewhere.Based on updated enrollment projections, additional state funding — assuming the state does not arbitrarily increase funding through 2018 — is now expected to shrink from $29 million to $11 million.Pierson said the numbers are not final. There’s still a state budget to be ironed out next summer, and he’s conservatively estimating that the state will increase, and not keep flat, Akron’s state funding by 1 percent each year, as opposed to more optimistic estimates of up to 3 percent increases used by other school treasurers.Doug Livingston can be reached at 330-996-3792 or

Metro RTA proposes route changes for fall; meetings scheduled to inform public
Metro RTA’s proposed fall route changes include shortening its most popular route along West Market Street, eliminating a stopover on Flight Memorial Parkway in Copley Township and extending service to Norton Plaza.Metro will provide details about the proposals and answer the public’s questions at a series of public meetings beginning at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Robert K.
