The Yough School Board approved two middle school soccer coaches at its regular meeting held March 13.

Brian Blasko will be the head coach of the Yough Intermediate Middle School boys soccer team. His salary as coach will be $2,604. He is also a teacher at the middle school.

Approved as assistant coach of the YIMS boys soccer team is Mike Veychek at a salary of $2,343. At the time of the vote, his approval was “pending clearances.”

The board also approved the extra remuneration of $175 each for wrestling coaches Jeremy Zufall and Mark Cornelius, boys basketball coaches Wayne Greiser and Matt Molinaro, and cheerleading coaches Erna Carpenter and Heather Boban for their extended seasons.

The following additions to the substitute teacher list were approved: Melinda Woods, nurse/nurses assistant; Edward Shuty, social studies; Robin Terhorst and Katie Bebar, art; Molly Beavers, elementary/special education; Kurt Olinger, health and physical education; Aubrey Holliday, secondary English; Christopher Kukic, earth and space science; and Ashley Levino, elementary.

A contract with Windstream was approved for telephone service. The contract qualifies for E-Rate funding which will reimburse the district about 40 percent of the contract cost, according to the district's business manager Mike Wrobleski.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
