  Mark Fulks Chosen To Fill Unexpired Term  
  Of Nik Amstutz On Boardman School Board:   July 24, 2014 Edition  
Mark Fulks
     From a field of seven candidates, the Boardman Board of Education met last week to appoint former school board member Mark Fulks, 658 Saddlebrook Dr., to replace its former president, Nik Amstutz, 50, who died June 20, of heart-related issues.
      Fulks served four terms on the school board and was ousted from his seat last year when Vickie Davis gained a seat on the board.
      School Board Vice President, Kim Poma, who assumed the presidency after Amstutz’s passing, said, “Every candidate was very impressive. Boardman is so lucky to have people of this caliber who would like to be involved in service to our school district.

  Reach Quarterfinals In Regional Play:   July 24, 2014 Edition  
     Boardman Community Baseball 13-year-old all-star team has posted a 3-1 mark in regional tourney play in Kalamazoo, Mich. in its bid to qualify for the World Series in Livermore, Calif.
      The local team, managed by Brian Fonderlin, opened regional play last Saturday, absorbing a 9-4 loss at the hands of Iowa, the victim of a three-hitter tossed by Tommy Shiltz. Devon Whitaker and Travis Harvey notched Boardman’s lone hits in the game. Boardman opened with Alex Cardona on the mound and held a 1-0 lead after three innings.
      Boardman came back in its second game, pinning a 12-0 loss on Missouri, as Dylan Gurski and Jake Fonderlin combined to two-hit the losers.
      Fonderlin aided his own cause with a triple and three runs scored, while Harvey slammed a three-bagger and scored a pair of runs. Mike O’Horo had a double.

     “E-mails travel over the internet where unauthorized individuals may gain access...Therefore, it may still be best for parents to utilize another method of communication when informing a teacher of particularly sensitive material or
      requesting a teacher to do the same.”

      The acceptable use policy “encourages teachers, students, staff and other school community members to use social networking media,” including DRUND, Trwitter and Facebook, “as a way to connect with others, share educational resources, create and curate educational content, and enhance the classroom experience.”
