Bishop Elizabeth Eaton returns to shepherd flock in Northeast Ohio
KENT: The presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America returned to her roots Tuesday to strengthen and rejuvenate pastors in the Northeastern Ohio Synod.“We have to remember that people listen to what we say,” Bishop Elizabeth Eaton said. “The message is simple and uncomplicated: God loves us completely. There’s no way to dress that up. It just is ... . All we have is Jesus.“We are the ones who hopefully can communicate that,” Eaton, of Chicago, told a group of 150 pastors, deaconesses and associates in ministry during the local synod’s chrism service at Trinity Lutheran Church in Kent.The annual Holy Tuesday service is a time for renewal through worship, particularly for pastors and others in ministry. It included communion, a renewal of ministry vows and promises, and blessing of the oils used for baptisms and the anointing of the sick.“This is a very powerful, moving liturgy that gives pastors a chance to assemble and be fed as they prepare to lead their congregations on the busy journey to the cross and Resurrection of Christ,” said Bishop Marcus Miller, interim bishop of the Northeastern Ohio Synod. “It’s an added blessing to have Bishop Eaton return because she’s beloved here. Our pastors love her, and they miss her.”Eaton led the local Cuyahoga Falls-based synod for six years as its first female bishop before being elected last year as the first woman to lead the denomination.The Chicago-based Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is the nation’s largest Lutheran group with 65 synods and about 4 million members. The Northeastern Ohio Synod is made up of more than 200 congregations and includes Summit, Stark, Portage, Wayne and Medina among its 20 counties.The Rev. Elizabeth “Betty” Hazelton, senior pastor at Trinity, said her congregation was honored to host the presiding bishop. The church has hosted the annual Holy Tuesday service for 18 years.“Bishop Eaton is such an articulate spokesperson for the church and such a warm and loving person on a personal level,” Hazelton said. “Her messages are always inspirational, and today was no exception. Holy Week is such a busy week for pastors, and this service is always a chance for us to be renewed spiritually, and Bishop Eaton was an excellent choice to accomplish that mission.”Eaton, a Cleveland native, was ordained in 1981 and began her ministry as pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in the Columbus suburb of Worthington. She also served one year as interim pastor at Good Hope Lutheran Church in Youngstown and as pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church in Ashtabula.She received her undergraduate degree in music education from the College of Wooster and her master of divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass.“I just wanted to share with them that if we allow ourselves to feel the love of Christ and rest in that feeling, we can help other people feel it. It’s all about the love of Christ,” Eaton said. “It was very special to be able to come home and encourage the people in what I still call ‘my synod.’ I have such deep ties here. Ohio will always be my home. I’m still working to call Northeastern Ohio ‘my former synod’ because they’re all my synods now.”Colette Jenkins can be reached at 330-996-3731 or cjenkins@thebeaconjournal.com.

Kent State shredded documents to hide information about presidential search, committee members say
KENT: Kent State officials were so intent on keeping their search for a new president secret that they destroyed search committee notes and documents.Search committee member Tom Janson, a music professor, said KSU shredded his notes and documents after he interviewed prospects.“The notes are gone,” said anthropology professor Owen Lovejoy, another search committee member. “Everything’s been taken care of. We shredded anything with personal data.”When asked for comment about the reports of the shredding, KSU spokesman Eric Mansfield did not respond directly to the question.He reiterated what he has in the past — that KSU has done nothing wrong.“Kent State University neither has violated any public records laws nor has the university violated or failed to conform to any internal policy,” he said in an email. “We have turned over all records that are relevant.”Meanwhile, the University of Akron and Youngstown State University have conducted open searches for new presidents, making it possible to know, for example, that former Ohio State University football coach and UA vice president Jim Tressel is a candidate at both institutions.Secrecy ensuredDetails slowly emerging underscore the extent to which the public, tax-supported Kent State went to ensure that it could conduct its search in private, away from the public eye, to keep names of candidates secret and to prevent disclosing how much it spent on individual candidates.Not only did KSU require search committee members to sign confidentiality agreements, the university signed a contract addendum giving its private search firm, Storbeck Pimentel and Associates of Media, Pa., the power to decide what records are released to the public.As a result, when the Beacon Journal and other media asked for public records showing how the $250,000 in taxpayer and student tuition money was spent, the university deferred to Storbeck Pimentel, which declined to deliver documentation that normally would be available. For example, KSU provided the Beacon Journal with detailed receipts from Storbeck Pimentel employees for such things as airport food, but for the presidential candidates, the company submitted invoices for chauffeurs, hotels, airfare and meals with only generic descriptions, such as “candidate travel expenses.”There was no description of what they may have purchased to eat while traveling, whether they made stopovers or billed for items that may not be permitted under state law — at least, according to what was provided to the Beacon Journal.Non-specific answersWhen asked how KSU vice president Charlene Reed, who coordinated the search for the university, confirmed that invoices were appropriate, Mansfield said “the approval process was appropriate for each expense.” He did not offer an explanation as to how that was done with such oblique invoices.Ohio law requires documents regarding employee searches to be made public on request.

KSU shredded documents to hide information about presidential search, committee members say
KENT: Kent State officials were so intent on keeping their search for a new president secret that they destroyed search committee notes and documents.Search committee member Tom Janson, a music professor, said KSU shredded his notes and documents after he interviewed prospects.“The notes are gone,” said anthropology professor Owen Lovejoy, another search committee member. “Everything’s been taken care of. We shredded anything with personal data.”When asked for comment about the reports of the shredding, KSU spokesman Eric Mansfield did not respond directly to the question.He reiterated what he has in the past — that KSU has done nothing wrong.“Kent State University neither has violated any public records laws nor has the university violated or failed to conform to any internal policy,” he said in an email. “We have turned over all records that are relevant.”Meanwhile, the University of Akron and Youngstown State University have conducted open searches for new presidents, making it possible to know, for example, that former Ohio State University football coach and UA vice president Jim Tressel is a candidate at both institutions.Secrecy ensuredDetails slowly emerging underscore the extent to which the public, tax-supported Kent State went to ensure that it could conduct its search in private, away from the public eye, to keep names of candidates secret and to prevent disclosing how much it spent on individual candidates.Not only did KSU require search committee members to sign confidentiality agreements, the university signed a contract addendum giving its private search firm, Storbeck Pimentel and Associates of Media, Pa., the power to decide what records are released to the public.As a result, when the Beacon Journal and other media asked for public records showing how the $250,000 in taxpayer and student tuition money was spent, the university deferred to Storbeck Pimentel, which declined to deliver documentation that normally would be available. For example, KSU provided the Beacon Journal with detailed receipts from Storbeck Pimentel employees for such things as airport food, but for the presidential candidates, the company submitted invoices for chauffeurs, hotels, airfare and meals with only generic descriptions, such as “candidate travel expenses.”There was no description of what they may have purchased to eat while traveling, whether they made stopovers or billed for items that may not be permitted under state law — at least, according to what was provided to the Beacon Journal.Non-specific answersWhen asked how KSU vice president Charlene Reed, who coordinated the search for the university, confirmed that invoices were appropriate, Mansfield said “the approval process was appropriate for each expense.” He did not offer an explanation as to how that was done with such oblique invoices.Ohio law requires documents regarding employee searches to be made public on request.
