Naomi Harter Moore, 101

MooreNaomi Harter Moore, a life resident in this area, will celebrate her 101st birthday on March 25, 2013.  She was born in Cairo, Ohio in 1912 to John and Mary Harter.

Naomi went to school for the first eight years in a one-room schoolhouse. She played on a softball team made up of boys and girls and walked to schools in the area to compete with other teams. Naomi relates that the girls’ “uniforms” were the dresses they wore to school. In 1927, when Hartville High School was built, Naomi walked four miles to attend there until she was sixteen when she had to stop her formal education to go to work with her father, a local wallpaper hanger. When she married George Moore in 1932, the couple lived in Uniontown, Ohio on a small truck farm where they raised their two sons. In 1955, George and Naomi, working together, built a home in Uniontown doing most of the labor. In fact, Naomi helped shingle the roof, laid the bricks on the garage and installed the flooring in the kitchen.

The couple traveled extensively throughout the United States in campers they built and furnished themselves. After George died in 1983, Naomi continued to reside in her home until she was 98 years old. She did her own housework, laundry, cooking, and sewing until she moved to St. Luke Lutheran Community due to health issues.  Now, Naomi moves at a slower pace physically but still enjoys doing word puzzles, reading newspapers, novels, and her devotionals. She also likes playing board games and dining out. Her visits with friends and family are pleasurable to all because of her remarkable memory and knowledge of current events as well as reminiscing about her childhood and family genealogy.

Naomi’s two sons, Dean and Glenn, are deceased, as is Dean’s wife, Marlene. Her daughter-in-law, Janice Moore Dwenger, and husband Tom Dwenger are her present caregivers.  She also has six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

She is the oldest member at St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church in North Canton, Ohio where she was baptized 100 years ago.  She has many friends at this church, old and young alike, who lovingly support her with welcomed cards and visits.

In February 2012, she went to Hartville Elementary School and helped the students including her two great-granddaughters celebrate the 100th Day of School. She told them stories of what it was like when she attended school some eighty-five years prior when the same building was then Hartville High School. In October 2012, Naomi enjoyed going to her Hartville High School Reunion when they honored the Class of 1930.

Naomi’s formula for her longevity is hard work, her faith in God and the love of life and other people. She celebrated her 101st birthday with a party attended by her many friends including some staff members from the St. Luke Lutheran Community, former neighbors, her St. Jacob’s Family, and her immediate and extended family. Birthday wishes can be sent to Naomi Moore at St. Luke Lutheran Community, 220  Applegrove St. NE, North Canton, OH 44720.

Lake Township trustees meeting of Oct. 10

By Mary Anne Kannam The Youngstown Vindicator
Lake TYownshipKEY ACTION  Agreed to send letters to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and the Ohio and U.S. EPAs to express their concerns about plans for an oil well on property near the Industrial Excess Landfill.

DISCUSSION  Trustees approved sending the letters after a crowd of about three dozen people attended the trustees meeting. Eight speakers spent about an hour expressing their concerns about the possibility of the well affecting water supplies and transmitting toxic substances from the landfill. Applause followed the remarks of the speakers multiple times. Some of the speakers said trustee Ellis Erb has a financial conflict of interest in the issue and should recuse himself from decisions involving the drilling of wells. Erb said he has not received any money from wells. He said after the meeting he is in negotiations for a possible lease. Those attending urged the trustees to vote to ban drilling on township-owned property. Trustee President John Arnold said the idea will be reviewed.


• Listened to three residents express their concerns about unused cars sitting on a property on Tippecanoe Avenue. Trustees said the township zoning administrator is examining the issue.

• Established a debit/credit card payment program for residents to pay bills exceeding $30, with a 3 percent processing fee.

Five People Accused for Role in Ohio Bank Fraud Scheme

by Alex Ferreras on March 23, 2011

( – Last Friday it was reported that John Townsend, of Akron Ohio, Samer Sammor, of Uniontown Ohio, LaMont McBride, of Cleveland, Ohio, Alicia Caldwell, of Inkster, Michigan and Wade Tyus, of Cleveland, Ohio were all charged with 10 counts, which included the plan to scheme, the actual bank fraud and forged securities.According to the indictment, it’s alleged that from February 2005 until March 2006 the defendants had all been conspiring together and with others to commit bank fraud with stolen checks. The checks were reported to be stolen from the mail room at the Eaton Center in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.

The charges go on to accuse the defendants of defrauding several Cleveland area bank branches out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by depositing stolen or counterfeit checks into fraudulent business accounts and withdrawing or transferring the funds from the years 2003-2006. These banks include National City Bank, Huntington Bank, Charter One Bank, and U.S. Bank.

If convicted for these crimes, the defendants will face a good sentencing, just like all the other fraudsters that get caught daily. Indictments are simply charges and do not come with sentencing, but with evidence that points directly at them it’s likely that they will be caught, and apprehended properly for what they’ve done. In recent cases posted by the FBI, defendants generally have pleaded guilty in under 2 weeks of the start of the case.
