MIKE ZIARKO Don't place signs on public property Ziarko Sidetracked "It's just one of those things that happen. We are lucky they found it because if he had continued to play football, it could have caused serious damage, possibly paralysis" was how Michael Ziarko, Sr., described tlie results of a CAT scan done last week on his son, Mike Ziarko. The younger Ziarko, who came back to play football for the Vikings after suffering a serious knee injury last fall, had been expectid. to play for the Indiana University Hoosiers this year after receiving a full four year scholarship to the university. Although the knee injury had healed, Ziarko continued to suffer frcm a stiff, sore neck with some tingling and numbness in his fingers. The Indiana University team doctors gave him a wide range of tests, including an MRI or magnetic resonance imagery test. This is where his problem first showed up. "It is a growth," said his father, "but it is a benign growth known as 'hemangioma'. This is a cluster of blocd vessels ' attached to and wrapped around the 7th vertebrae. The team doctors have said it has probably been there for 5 or 6 years. "Approximately 10 percent of the population has something like this but it is not serious for most of them unless they play football." Football is something the younger Ziarko will not be doing. Instead, to keep his four year scholarship, he will be working with the Indiana University strength program. "He still has to work to keep his scholarship," said his dad. "The coaches at Indiana have been great. They have told him that he will be able to work into some coaching as an undergraduate in the next couple of years. "He had fine medical care while in the Hoover program. It is just that at the college level, with his stiff neck, they went into it a little more deeply. We obviously are- very glad they did. "Michael's a good kid. He'll do just fine. He is just going to go in a different direction than what he had planned." A. Michael Sumser, Director of Administration for the City of North Canton, issued a reminder that all snipe signs, such as garage sale signs, special event signs and political signs, should be placed an private property (with the permission of the owner) and not on City right-of- way or City property. Such signs also should not be affixed to trees, utility poles or light poles. Section 553.01 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of North Canton and Section 723.01 of the Ohio Revised Code, clearly make placing of such signs in these areas illegal. If signs are found in the right-of-way, they will be removed by the police department and other municipal departments and taken to 7300 Freedom Ave. NW, where they may be picked up. You are also reminded that political signs are not permitted more than 45 days prior to the election. Your cooperation in this matter will be appreciated.

Little Art Gallery exhibit county native Roundtable offers many opportunities Local businesses interested in joint- venture or trade opportunities with the Soviet Union can learn more about these possibilities at a Business Roundtable to be held at Stark Technical College on Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon. A delegation of 14 Soviet municipal officials will met with local business development and other economic opportunities. The meeting is also intended to help Soviet officials learn more about the capitalist system through discussions on developing small businesses, motivating their citizens, establishing trade and creating jobs. The Business Round- table, sponsored by Stark International Marketing, the Stark Development Board and the eight Stark County Chambers of Commerce including Canton, Massillon, Alliance, North Canton, Miherva, Canal Fulton, Jackson-Belden and Lake Township (Hartville), is just one facet of a five-day visit to the Canton area by the Soviet mayors. As part of the five- day visit, the Soviet officials will also tour major companies to learn about manufacturing techniques and methods for dealing with environmental concerns. They will also meet with local government officials to gain more insight about city management. The five- day tour is part of a two-week visit in which they will spend time in Washington, D.C. and New York City. "I believe the program could provide us with a challenging opportunity to have an impact not only on democratization efforts in tlie Soviet Union, but also to explore tlie possibility of doing business there," stated Congressman Ralph Regula, coordinator of the Ohio visit, in a letter to the Board. The overall program, entitled Mayors, is being sponsored by the IMC Corporation, a Soviet-American joint venture, and coordinated by former Canton resident and Soviet emigre Ed Dubrovsky. This visit is a first step in what is hoped to be a continuing series of meetings between Russia and the U.S. on these topics. Another seminar for mayors in Russia has already been scheduled for Sept. 16 to be held in Moscow. If you company has done business in the Soviet Union, directly, or indirectly, and would be willing to participate in providing information on your activities to the seminar participants, call the Stark Development Board.

Opening the season at The Little Art Gallery of North Canton Library is an exhibit of paintings by Stark County native Gene Barber. In the cases is a display of tole painting by members of the Tole Painters of the Western Reserve, an affiliate of the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painters, Inc. A reception from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 9, marks the opening of the new exhibit. The public is invited to meet the artists. Refreshments are provided by the Friends of The Little Art Gallery. Gene Barber, basically a self-taught artist, possesses an innate ability that has demanded expression frcm the early years. Having worked construction for 23 years, many months away frcm home, he spent evenings painting in hotel rooms where he experimented and developed the use of many media. "Working in acrylics, inks and watercolor, I try to maintain a sense of balance, depth and composition that will trigger the inner feelings and thoughts of tlie viewer," states Barber. "These expressions are in a free flowing abstract form. If I accomplish this, I consider my works both fulfilling and successful." His works have reached a definite level of professionalism and are represented at three local Canton galleries as well as Paragon Gallery in Montrose and Campbell Gallery in Salem. To most decorative artists "tole" is the generic term for any decorated metalware. Its origin is in the French "tole", the word for plain, undecorated sheet metal. "Tole Peinte du lac" refers to French painted tin ware. This art form is part of our American cultural heritage seen in tlie colorful tinware of early America and here correctly referred to as japanned ware as Japan paints and varnishes were used. Today's decorative painters use most any surface for their art. Wood, fabrics, canvas, slate as well as metal are embellished with colorful floral designs, scenes, animals and figures. The members of the Western Reserve Chapter exhibiting here offer an attractive selection of hand painted articles tliat illustrate an old art form as used today. The exhibit continues through Oct. 9 and may be seen during regular library hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday though Thursday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday; closed Sunday. local news in brief Child registry program ierl Hartville residents are invited to bring their children to the Child Registry program during Hartville Harvest Days on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m., at TCBY, 864 West Maple St., Hartville.
