Drilling-rich watershed district looking to reduce assessment paid by 500,000 Ohio landowners
Property owners from Akron to the Ohio River could see a reduction in the annual assessment paid to the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District starting next year.The reason: The district is flush with cash from Utica Shale leases and royalties paid on natural gas and liquids produced from wells on district-owned land.Reducing the assessment — about $12 a year for most landowners — will be recommended Friday when the district’s five-member governing board meets at 9 a.m. in New Philadelphia.“We believe it is not only prudent, but a responsibility of the conservancy district to return some of the benefits the oil and gas leases have generated for the MWCD to the property owners in the form of a reduction in their annual assessments,” said John M. Hoopingarner, the district’s executive director/secretary.Last year, the board directed staff to review the annual assessment paid by the owners of nearly 500,000 parcels in the 18 counties that drain into the Tuscarawas and Muskingum rivers. Next year is the earliest the fee could be reduced.The assessment was first levied in 2009 amid protests from some vocal landowners. It covers landowners in Summit, Stark, Wayne and 15 other counties. The district collects about $11 million a year from the assessment to ensure the safety of 14 dams and reservoirs in eastern Ohio. The district’s board must review and approve the assessment annually.Any action to reduce the assessment would not eliminate projects underway or planned with assessment funds because the agency would use revenue from oil and gas leases to supplement current collection levels, the agency said.The proposed reduction drew support from four state legislators whom the district briefed: state Sen. Troy Balderson, R-Zaneville; state Sen. Lou Gentile, D-Steubenville; state Rep. Al Landis, R-Dover; and state Rep. David Hall, R-Millersburg.To date, the district has earned $77.8 million in signing bonuses for drilling leases and about $3 million in royalty revenue.The district is also considering a new lease for drilling with Colorado-based Antero Resources on 6,700 acres at Piedmont Lake in Belmont, Harrison and Guernsey counties.Earlier, the district agreed to leases for property it owns at three other lake areas: Clendening Lake in Harrison County in 2011, Leesville Lake in Carroll County in 2012 and Seneca Lake in Guernsey and Noble counties in 2013.Those funds have been used to pay down district debt, improve public access and plan a $160 million upgrade to recreational facilities.The watershed district owns 54,000 acres of land.Bob Downing can be reached at 330-996-3745 or

Akron metro population grows slightly
The Akron metropolitan area grew slightly last year, the first time the population increased in the region in three years.It wasn’t by much, but the area — which encompasses Summit and Portage counties — gained 729 people, according to new figures released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.The Akron-area population now stands at 705,686, up 0.1 percent from the previous year.The area lost people in 2011 and 2012.While 289 out of 381 metro areas nationwide grew between 2012 and 2013, most in Ohio lost population.The Youngstown-Warren-Boardman area finished last in the country for metros, shedding nearly 3,000 people in one year. It now has 555,506 people.Columbus fared the best in the state, adding 22,129 people to its 1.9 million total. The Canton-Massillon area grew by 28 people to 403,707, while the Cleveland-Elyria area declined by 14 people and remains at 2 million.Cincinnati, which gained 8,097 people, is the largest metro area in the state with 2.1 million residents spread over Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.Meanwhile, Dayton, Lima, Mansfield, Springfield, Toledo and Weirton-Steubenville all had declines.The census reported that the fastest-growing areas are in or near the Great Plains, thanks to the oil and gas industries. Those include Odessa, Texas; Midland, Texas; Fargo, N.D.; Bismark, N.D.; Casper, Wyo.; and Austin-Round Rock, Texas.“... Mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction industries were the most rapidly growing part of our nation’s economy over the last several years,” Census Bureau Director John Thompson said in a prepared statement.“A major reason was the energy boom on the Plains, which attracted job seekers from around the country.”Rick Armon can be reached at 330-996-3569 or

Sheriff George T. Maier can appear on Stark County ballot, Ohio secretary of state says
Stark County Sheriff George T. Maier will be able to stand for election May 6 on the Democratic primary ballot.Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Friday broke a Feb. 21 tie vote by the Stark County Board of Elections over a challenge to Maier’s candidacy.At issue was whether the sheriff had either the recent supervisory experience or college-level education required in state law for the county’s chief law enforcement officer.“While I am not confident that Mr. Maier meets the legal qualifications in the Ohio Revised Code, I am also unable to clearly conclude he does not,” Husted wrote in a letter sent to the elections board. “Given the law and the facts in this case, I choose to err on the side of ballot access.”At the county level, Republican elections board members Curt Braden and William Cline had sided with Massillon resident Cynthia Balas-Bratton, who had protested Maier’s candidacy. Democratic members Deametrious St. John and Samuel Ferruccio Jr. rejected the complaint and favored Maier’s inclusion in the election.Maier’s qualifications had been twice challenged before the Ohio Supreme Court. He was removed from office after the first lawsuit determined he did not meet the requirement for recent service in uniform. Maier then worked as a Harrison County sheriff’s deputy for a month. Democrats reappointed him. The state high court dismissed the second lawsuit.The varied views about his qualifications form the backdrop for the decision from Husted, a Republican.“After a thorough review of this matter, the one thing that does not appear to be in controversy is that the law needs more clarity,” he wrote. “The law is in need of rewriting in a manner that is unambiguous.“Only in so doing will prospective candidates and those who administer the law be able to clearly make determinations on qualifications and eligibility. I strongly urge the General Assembly to work with law enforcement officials at the federal, state and local levels to modernize the law and make it easier to administer.”Maier has spent most of his career as a uniformed police officer, having started in Hartville in 1981. He was State Trooper of the Year in 1991 during his career with the State Highway Patrol, where his duties included commanding the Steubenville post.Before his appointment as sheriff, however, his experience was in the civilian jobs of Massillon safety-service director and assistant director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The fact that he was not in the ranks of uniformed officers was a point of contention for his opponents.Maier initially was appointed as a replacement for Michael A. McDonald, who was unable to take office following his November 2012 election because of a terminal illness.The successful candidate in the general election will have the right to serve the remainder of the unexpired term, which ends in January 2016.Also seeking election is Republican Lawrence Dordea, an Alliance councilman who works as Hartville police chief.Summit County sheriff’s Lt. Douglas Smith, a Lake Township resident, filed his intention to be a Democratic write-in candidate when Maier’s presence on the ballot was challenged. He said Friday that he will withdraw.Attorney Craig Conley, who represented Balas-Bratton in her protest before the elections board, said Friday he will ask the Ohio Supreme Court to remove Maier from the ballot.Challenging the ruling of the secretary of state is “an uphill battle,” Conley said.But the task may be easier because of Husted’s written decision, he said, which was unlike other tie-breakers that are resolved with a firm statement of law.“That’s the only one I’ve seen that is so wishy-washy,” Conley said.

Speaker Bill Batchelder begins final year of long career
MEDINA: Bill Batchelder’s first stint in the Ohio House ended before he achieved his dream.Facing term limits, he left the legislature and became a judge in his home county.Now nearing the end of his second legislative tour, Batchelder has realized his goal — serving as speaker of the House — and has ushered his party to a supermajority and through a state budget crisis.Now, Batchelder, 72, who has served more than half his life in the legislature, enters his final year at the Statehouse, with term limits bringing his 46-year public-service career to a close.“It’s something,” Batchelder, R-Medina, said of facing the waning months of his legislative service. “It’s huge.”Batchelder’s final year in public service will include many tributes from his colleagues, with the first being Gov. John Kasich’s decision to hold his State of the State address Monday in the lawmaker’s hometown of Medina.Kasich said in a recent interview with the Beacon Journal that honoring Batchelder played into his choice of locale, along with the governor’s desire to visit and highlight different cities around the state.“Well, it definitely is something we thought would be nice,” Kasich said. “It wasn’t the only reason; it was one of the reasons.”Kasich called Batchelder interesting and highly intelligent.“He’s always looking out for me,” the governor said. “It may look like we are in disagreement at times, but he has great concern for me. As a result of that, I couldn’t help but have great affection for him.”The Beacon Journal recently talked to Batchelder about his to-do list for this year — it’s long — his thoughts on Kasich’s recognition — he’s clearly uncomfortable — and what the future hold for both him and his party. In an hourlong discussion at the Cool Beans Cafe on the Medina Square, Batchelder wore the dark-rimmed glasses that have become his trademark look, a tweed jacket and Ronald Reagan cuff links that he got in a trade for a set of Ohio House cuff links. (He likely has another set of those.)GoalsBatchelder outlined several priorities for the coming year, including:• Term limits: Obviously a subject that hits close to home, Batchelder is co-chairing a committee examining possible constitutional changes to put before voters next year, with term limits among the topics being discussed. He doesn’t think term limits can be repealed, but thinks the amount of time people can serve in the Ohio House or Senate could be increased, possibly from the current eight years to 12.As the chief recruiter for the GOP in the House, Batchelder said term limits make wooing new members difficult, especially when they already are serving in local offices with no time limitations or in the business sector.“When you tell a county commissioner to come to the Statehouse, he or she might look at you and say, ‘Are you nuts?’ ” Batchelder said. “It’s a situation I think we can remedy.”• Reapportionment: Batchelder has been around long enough to see the revamping of federal and state district lines several times, with both political parties doing the drawing. The constitutional commission is examining the issue. Batchelder, at the very least, would like to see more input and participation added to the redistricting process.“I’m not sure it’s solvable,” he said. “I’d like to see it this year.”• Health care: Batchelder and Kasich, who have been friends since the 1970s, had a rare parting of the ways last year on the issue of expanding Medicaid to low-income Ohioans. Kasich, knowing his party was divided, went through the state Controlling Board to allow $2.56 billion in federal money to be spent on the expansion of Medicaid as permitted under President Barack Obama’s federal health-care law. The Ohio Supreme Court upheld Kasich’s move.Now, the legislature is considering 18 bills related to Medicaid and the federal health-care law.“The governor accepted this. We did not,” Batchelder said. “I think the House would have been opposed, though they might not have been. The governor accepted this and this was essentially the start to reform Medicaid.”Not on agendaOne hot-button issue Batchelder says the House won’t be tackling is “right to work,” which would strip Ohio unions of the ability to compel membership or to collect money from members automatically.Twin pieces of legislation, one introduced by state Rep. Kristina Roegner, R-Hudson, received a lukewarm reception when they were unveiled in May.“The only way it will get on the ballot is if they circulate petitions to get it on the ballot,” Batchelder said of the groups pushing for the change. “The governor and I had all the fun we wanted with Senate Bill 5.”Senate Bill 5 was legislation the GOP-controlled legislature approved in March 2011 that limited collective bargaining by public employees. It was repealed at the polls that November after an aggressive Democrat- and union-backed campaign.Batchelder also is skeptical about the chances of GOP-backed legislation that would block implementation of Common Core, the nationally endorsed education standards that sets rigorous goals for Ohio and 45 other states. Critics say the standards, which some call “Commie Core,” amount to an invasion of privacy, an attack on states’ rights, a federal takeover, an unfunded mandate and a tool that could be used against teachers unions.“The bottom line is there might be only three people on the committee who are outright opposed,” the speaker said of the Education Committee. “Our caucus is divided.”State of the StateThe legislature also wasn’t in agreement on Kasich’s decision to again take his annual address on the road, with some Democrats arguing it should be held in the state capital, as had been the tradition.Kasich, who is seeking re-election this year, gave his first speech in Columbus, then delivered the two subsequent addresses in Steubenville and Lima. He will give his speech this year at 7 p.m. Monday in Medina High School’s Performing Arts Center.Batchelder says it is kind of Kasich to say he was part of the reason in choosing Medina, but the speaker also thinks Medina is simply a good choice of location. The city, after all, is where then-Vice President George Bush spoke in 1988, drawing a crowd of thousands to the square, and a county in which most officeholders are Republicans. Added to that, the city is between the Akron and Cleveland media markets.“I think it’s valuable,” Batchelder said. “People will come [to Medina] who wouldn’t dream of going to Columbus.”Local elected officials are thrilled to have Kasich coming to town.“This will be an opportunity for Medina County and Medina to shine,” said county Commissioner Stephen Hambley, who is among the candidates running for Batchelder’s seat.Hambley, who credits Batchelder for getting him started in politics by taking him to a Young Republicans conference when he was in high school, called the governor’s visit “the capstone” of Batchelder’s career.As for what Kasich will say during his speech, that remains a mystery, even to Batchelder.“That’s not an easy thing to do,” Batchelder said of the speech. “We have a divided base with Obamacare. ... I’m confident it will be colorful and informative.”Kasich declined to discuss specifics of the speech, saying he was still working on it. He said he had hoped it would be short, but, “Too much needs to be said. Maybe I will talk fast.”FutureBatchelder has earned the respect of Republicans and Democrats alike who say he will be missed.“He’s been a strong mentor for many of us,” said Medina Mayor Dennis Hanwell, who is a Republican, though his seat is nonpartisan. “He’s a good, ethical, hardworking Christian man who sets a positive example for the rest of us.”Hanwell said he has mixed emotions about Batchelder’s public service ending. He’s glad the speaker will have the opportunity to do things he hasn’t had the chance to do, but he said the speaker has done a great job representing the Medina area.State Rep. Vernon Sykes, D-Akron, who also is in his second tour in the Ohio House and has served with Batchelder when each party had control of the chamber, called the speaker a scholar and a gentleman.“I have always found him to be reasonable,” Sykes said.Sykes said Batchelder co-sponsored ethics legislation with him in the 1990s. He said, though, that Batchelder, who was once a member of an ultra-right group called the “Caveman Caucus,” is a loyal partisan and staunchly conservative.“On the battlefield, he is a worthy opponent,” said Sykes, who has served in the legislature for 23 years and, like Batchelder, is being forced out because of term limits.Asked his thoughts on who the next speaker will be, Batchelder said that will be for the Republican caucus to decide. Top contenders include Rep. Ron Amstutz, R-Wooster, who also is a legislative veteran.Batchelder thinks Kasich will win re-election handily, based on polls he has seen, and predicts the GOP will pick up two more seats in the House.As for his plans, Batchelder said he might go back to teaching, which he said he has enjoyed.When Batchelder was being encouraged to return to the legislature, he said he asked Alice, his wife who is a judge, if this would be OK. She responded, “Over my dead body.”“From a federal judge, that’s serious,” he said, laughing.Asked if he’d be running again if term limits weren’t in play, Batchelder said he might have posed the question to Alice.“She might have said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ” he said.Stephanie Warsmith can be reached at 330-996-3705 or Follow on Twitter: @swarsmith and on Facebook: Read the Beacon Journal’s political blog at

Only 50 of nearly 1,200 applicants for State of the State tickets to attend speech
Requests from the public to attend Gov. John Kasich’s State of the State address in Medina: 1,184.Number who got tickets: 50.Tickets were awarded through a random drawing, with online requests due by 6 p.m. Tuesday. Those who got tickets were notified by email Wednesday.Jim Lynch, a spokesman for Kasich, said the tickets awarded to the public are on par with the number given out during the governor’s two previous on-the-road talks in Steubenville and Lima. Kasich will deliver his latest annual address at 7 p.m. Monday at Medina High School’s Performing Arts Center, which has a seating capacity of 1,133.“It’s always nice to accommodate more people,” Lynch said. “Before we took the show on the road we didn’t have this capacity at the Statehouse.”Kasich will give his speech before a joint session of the Ohio House and Senate. Lynch said about 550 tickets will go to the General Assembly and about 50 to members of the media. He said others will go to Ohio Supreme Court members, local elected officials from Medina County, Courage Medal recipients and their guests, volunteers and members of Kasich’s Cabinet.Kasich will give his speech at a time when he has a 51 percent approval rating, which has remained steady over the past year, but also when he enjoys only a slim lead over Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, his Democratic challenger, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.Kasich is leading FitzGerald, largely an unknown challenger, 43 percent to 38 percent, according to the poll.FitzGerald’s campaign hailed the poll results as a victory and immediately sent out a fundraising email, hoping to capitalize.“Donate $15 right now and help us make this race a dead heat,” Chip Shannon, FitzGerald’s political director, wrote in the email. “We can’t do it without you.”The people who got tickets to Kasich’s speech, about 4 percent of the number who requested them, were pleased to be selected.“I was quite surprised,” said Barbara Rosier-Tryon of Warren, who is Republican. “It’s an exciting thing. I always saw it on television … I’m very excited.”Rosier-Tryon, who will be attending with her husband, Harold, said they plan to head to Medina, about an hour and 20 minutes away, early to have dinner before the speech.An owner of a property management company, Rosier-Tryon said she is hoping to hear Kasich talk about his plans to improve the business climate in Ohio.“What that means is jobs,” she said. “Jobs is what we sorely need.”Stephanie Warsmith can be reached at 330-996-3705 or Follow on Twitter: @swarsmith and on Facebook: Read the Beacon Journal’s political blog at
