My name is Joe Marinich, and I am 31 years old and I have 3 daughters, and have been married for about 8 years. Two of my daughters will be attending Carlisle this fall. I have currently served on the Board of Education for about 2 years and I am looking to keep my seat after the November elections. I have been the Youth Pastor at the Vineyard Community Church in Franklin for about 8 years.
I am concerned for and care about students of all ages. I take a lot of pride in the city of Carlisle and simply want to make it a place my children and students take pride in graduating. I am passionate about making this an excellent rated school district, and I am currently fighting for better safety and communication within our schools.
Thanks for taking a little time to learn a little about me…
Let me start out by saying that perception is what matters in these sort of elections. What I also realize is that community members and observers typically remember the last few decisions that we as a board make. I think its good sometimes to try and remember our victories, as well as defeats… Here are some victories.
1. We as a board have cut almost $1 million dollars a year.
2. We did this by pretty much not cutting things that would hurt us academically.
3. We have brought trust and communication back to negotiations that take place between administrators, teachers, and board members.
4. We have taken this district from one on financial watch to one that will not finish this year in negative spending.
5. We were a few indicators away from being an excellent rated school district, and not only will we achieve this soon but we get better every year.
These are just 5 reasons to keep this board intact, and there are many more. Although we may not always agree on things we always come to a reasonable decision and we all vote our convictions. I am asking not just for your vote this year, but for your vote for my friends. We have not had much time together to really shape this district and I hope you give us this opportunity.
For more information check my website at www.joe4schoolboard.com, or follow me on twitter at www.twitter.com/joe4schoolboard. There is also a link to my twitter from the homepage of my site if you aren’t good at that sort of thing.
…My name is Joe and I am running for school board. VOTE 4 JOE!
Thanks for your time.

Great job Derin and good luck against Monroe next week!!
The Indians are perfect after 5 games into the season this year!! The Indians trounced the Northridge Polar Bears 42-28 on Friday!!
Jordan "Juke Ya" Jacobs rushed for two touchdowns for the Indians!!
The Indians had a massive balanced attack against the Polar Bears. On Special Teams, Kelly LeForce "Be With You" recovered a block punt in the end zone for a score. On the ground, Nick "The Real Deal" McGill added another touchdown on his resume and Alex "The Show" Leach rushed for a TD, as well.
The passing game that so many people says is non existent was pretty on, as well. Jake "Gibby" Gibson hit Nick Reynolds on a 35 yard touchdown pass in the game! How can people really doubt that the Indians don't have a passing game when they have a returning QB that broke the passing record last year. Amazes me I tell ya!
The defense was stable too. Only allowing the Polar Bears 14 points till the fourth quarter.
The Indians take their 5-0 record to 4-1 Monroe Hornets next week. The talk has already begun. The focus is now the Hornets!
More details to come by morning!!
Bryan Green is challenging Mary Ann Thompson for the Ward 1 City Council seat this November 3rd election. Take some time to read over the his bio.
I was born and raised right here in Carlisle. I have lived here almost my entire life. My family owned and operated a local small business from 1989 til 1998 when we moved the store to Middletown. I graduated from CHS in 1987 and joined the Ohio Army National Guard where I served with distinction on several volunteer humanitarian missions including Honduras and Jamaica.
I attended Wright State University and began working on my bachelor's degree in psychology. In 1992, during the first Gulf War, I wanted to serve in the war effort more directly so I disenrolled from College and joined the Active duty Army. I had to complete refresher training and by the time it was complete, the war was, in effect, over. I got married just as I joined Active duty and I served the remainder of my enlistment at Fort Bragg, North Carolina where I served with distinction as a senior mechanic in a Field Artillery Unit. I was quickly promoted to Sergeant and was named XVIII Airborne Corps Soldier of the Year.
I returned in 1995 and I re-enrolled at Wright State University and in 1998 I graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology with concentration on Early Childhood Development. I entered Law School in the fall of 1998 at The Ohio State University. In 2001, I took and passed the Ohio Bar Examination. I practiced for a brief period at a firm in Middletown. I now co-operate the family business with my brother and practice law on a selective basis.
I am an avid supporter of tort-reform and increased accountability within the professions, especially law, medicine, pharmaceutical, and government. I believe, as our founding fathers did, that un-checked power inevitably leads to corruption and abuse and that it is the duty of every citizen to work to prevent it.
I am the proud father of two wonderful sons...Jack (10) and Drew (8). They are both active in the city's little league sports. I have been blessed with many wonderful opportunities to coach wrestling and---my passion---Little League Baseball. I think that family is the most important and valuable asset on Earth. In every conceivable manner, family is the link to our past and the bridge to our future. I am looking very forward to having the opportunity to serve the families of the city that I love.
On Tuesday, September 22, 2009, the City of Carlisle officially appointed Krista R.Wyatt as its interim Fire Chief. Chief Wyatt began her official duties on Wednesday, September 23. The Fire Chief position became vacant upon the resignation of longtime Chief Greg Wallace on July 28, 2009. Chief Wyatt will serve as interim Fire Chief while City Council fully explores options for provision of fire service to City residents.
Several years ago City Council appointed an ad hoc committee whose purpose was to investigate options and make recommendations to Council with regards to the City’s fire service. This committee thought it would be beneficial to have a citizen survey with regards to fire service. In September, 2008, City Council directed that a survey be developed to gain input regarding various city services with several questions directly related to provision of fire service.
Subsequently, the City partnered with the Master of Public Administration Program at the University of Dayton to create a citizen survey and evaluate the results. The University provided this service at no cost to the City. Sixty-five percent (65%) of those responding preferred that the city continue maintaining its own volunteer fire department. Fifty-nine percent (59%) supported investigating the possibility of forming a joint fire district with neighboring communities. There was no significant support for creating a paid fulltime department or contracting with another governmental entity for provision of fire service. At their meeting of August 4, the Ad Hoc Committee reviewed the survey results and recommended to City Council that the City pursue a joint fire district. City Council accepted the Committee’s recommendation to pursue discussions with various neighboring communities on the formation of a joint fire district while maintaining its present volunteer force in the interim.
Chief Wyatt will serve as interim Fire Chief while the recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee are explored. Chief Wyatt has over 20 years of experience as a firefighter/paramedic, 16 of which have been in a supervisory capacity. She is the first career Captain with the City of Lebanon Fire Department and has served in that position for over 10 years. She also served as a Lieutenant and Captain in the Lebanon Volunteer Fire Department. She brings significant experience to the City of Carlisle in the operation of a volunteer fire department. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Miami University, an Associate Degree in Fire and EMS Administration from Sinclair Community College and is a graduate of the Ohio Fire Executive Program. She is a Level 2 Fire Fighter, Paramedic, Fire Safety Inspector, Fire Fighter Instructor and EMT Instructor.
The City of Carlisle is fortunate to have someone with her experience and expertise serve on an interim basis to enable City Council and staff adequate opportunity to fully explore the options available to provide the best fire service to our residents and community.

Dear Citizens of Carlisle,
For the last 20 years it has been my honor to serve as your City Council Representative for Ward 1, with the last 6 years as your Deputy Mayor. I can only express my gratitude and the rewards I have felt in being able to be a part of and make a difference in helping guide the City of Carlisle to new heights. During my tenure as your City Council Ward 1 representative, I have also served in many other capacities to grow this great city.
- Planning Commission – (22 years)
- Park Board – (15 years)
- City Finance Committee – (15 years)
- Chairman of the Personnel board – (5 years)
- Organizing the Annual Santa Breakfasts - (10 years)
- Organizing Christmas Tree Lightings – (15 years)
- Hot Dog Roast to Benefit the Park Board – (4 years)
- Golf Tournaments to Benefit the Park Board – (14 years)
- Executive Board of the Rail Road Days Committee (15 years)
- Lead Organizer of the Rail Road Day Parade – (15 years)
- Warren County Municipal League, as Past President and Current Secretary/Treasurer (12 years)
Part of my role as your City Council Representative and Deputy Mayor is to make sure this great city prospers among the numerous cities located in Warren County and the State of Ohio. I was appointed 3 years ago as one of 3 Ohio representatives to serve on the National Human Development Steering Committee. This year I was also appointed to serve as Carlisle’s representative on the National Small Cities Council. Serving on these National Committees brings us additional knowledge and helps Carlisle solve similar problems while bringing recognition to our city on a National level.
All incumbents, including myself, have managed to keep our city in a positive financial position relative to the economic challenges facing many communities today. I think the decisions and actions made have always shown that heartfelt commitment to this community. We hope everyone feels that it is in the best interest of the community to keep experienced Council Members, so that we can continue down the path to what we all want - a great place to call home.
I am extremely proud of our community and want to continue to be a part of its growth.
I am asking for your support at the upcoming November 3rd election. I am ready to continue doing what I can to serve this great community for another 4 years.
You can contact me via my e-mail, email@example.com or by phone, 746-1260. Visit my website, www.votemaryannthompson.comfor my biography, my community activities. And my comments on the issues.

Image by Gustty via FlickrOur Carlisle Indians took their undefeated 3-0 record into their first SWBL Buckeye matchup last night versus the defending champs Waynesville Spartans. As previously reported, Carlisle dominated on defense and took the win from the Spartans 41-33. This score was not anywhere near the tale of the game. Carlisle led the game 41-17 until the last five minutes of the game and the Stingy Waynesville Spartans would just not go down that easy. Waynesville deserves a lot of credit in a valiant effort to close out the game. But Carlisle managed to slow down that effort and escape with a great win!!
The game started out with the Indians defense pretty much controlling the pace. Carlisle took advantage of 2 picks of Waynesville QB Cory Young and forced a fumble. In the first half, Nick McGill kept his unbelievable season rolling with two touchdowns and Jake Gibson added one. At the end of the half, Carlisle was up 20-10.
As the game went on Carlisle showed it's running dominance with Nick McGill rushing for 109 yards and despite fumbling three times and coughing it up to the Spartans twice "The Real Deal" McGill with determination still prevailed with a fine game.
The defense until the final five minutes was stingy as usual not letting Waynesville get in a groove. Deron Dawes was in the backfield twice sacking the Waynesville Quarterback for losses. Along, with the interceptions and fumble recovery Carlisle's Defense looks as good as it has ever been in history past.
Place kicker Kris Garrett also had another outstanding game converting on 5 of 6 extra points.
Waynesville moves to 2-2 on the season and Carlisle moves to an outstanding 4-0. The Indians do not get much of a break they have to go on the road next week to a very athletic Northridge squad and then on the road against Monroe. Two very tough SWBL Buckeye challenges and then the Indians, you have to think, are also looking somewhat ahead to an October 16th showdown with neighbor Valley View in Germantown!!
More stats to come on Monday of the Waynesville game!!
