Super Food Services, Inc. filed a lawsuit the day after Christmas against the Amherst IGA for breach of a five-year supply contract. According to the lawsuit filed in the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas, Super Food Services alleges that it entered into a contract with the Amherst IGA on Jan. 29, 1998, which stated, among other things, that the IGA would purchase no less than SO percent of the products it would sell from Super Food Services for a period of five years. The lawsuit also alleges that the Amherst IGA is in default of a security agreement between the two companies. The security agreement states that if the retailer, IGA, goes into default of the service contract. Super Food Services can claim rights to all of the IGA's furniture, fixtures, equipment, and merchandise, among other things, and then Amherst police downtown marking keep track of how patrolman Harold White spends some time the tires of parked cars.

Parking tickets in downtown Amherst are $25. " that wcre to h*»PI»"*. *c Am herst IGA would be effectively out of business. According to Robert Lane, president of the Amherst IGA, he had not yet received a subpeona on the matter last Thursday, the day after the suit was filed. He said that he had decided to drop Super Food Services as a supplier along with some other stores he did not name. "The company (Super Food) never even tried to ask me why I left before I left," Lane said. The issue that poses the greatest threat to the IGA, however, is whether or not the store breached the contract with the Minnesota supplier. 'We contend there is no five-year agreement," Lane said. If that is true, then the IGA would have been free to stop buying products from Super Food. The lawsuit alleges that the IGA ceased buying the contractually-required amount of product as of Sept. 19, 2001. Attached to the lawsuit are copies of the retail sales and service agreement as well as the security agreement, both of which are signed by both a vice president at Super Food Services and Lane.

Karl Yost of the Lorain County Sheriffs Department However, Yost said, there are still many things wrong with what occurred on Dec. 7 at a juvenile's home in So--\i Amherst, when the 15-year- old female was videotaped having sex with the unidentified male with about 10 to 11 other people watching. "If it wasn't for the videotape, we wouldn't be having this conversation," Yost said in an interview. He said that the sexual activity taking place in the video was consentual, thereby making it less likely for the matter lo be investigated as a rape. The taping of the sex act, Yost said, is another matter. "It's illegal because she's a minor," Yost said. "It's a production of pornographic material in a sense." Now, he added, he is busy questioning all of those present at the time of the taping in the hope of finding out CONTINUED on page 2 School project grows into fun The holiday season, for many, is largely spent emptying checking accounts and going into debt to buy countless gifts for loved ones. While most area high school students are spending their money, one Firelands High School student decided to use the Christmas season to make some money. Eric McKinney, 16, is a junior at Firelands and a member of the Future Farmers of America (FFA). Every year, FFA members choose one large scale project and this year, McKinney chose to sell Christinas trees. "Selling Christmas trees is fun," McKinney said. He sold the trees at the Tuffy Auto Service Center in Amherst where his father, George, is an employee. According to Eric McKinney, the sale of Ihe trees went very well. "We started out with 105 trees and we have one left," he said. McKinney sold the trees but did not grow them, he said. Instead, he went with his father to Canton where they picked the trees up. paying for them with his own money. He then got to keep all of the money made from the sale of the trees. He said he got the idea lo sell Christmas trees from his dad. who also sold Ihe trees Eric McKinney at Tuffy's two years ago to make some extra money. McKinney said that the experience was such a positive one that he plans to sell the trees again next year. McKinney said that he is now looking forward to the annual FFA Awards Banquet this April He said that he hopes his project has put him in the running to receive an award. "You can win a proficiency award for the best project with plants or animals," he said. He said that his favorite aspects of the project were both the act of going to get the trees and talking with customers. Some customers, he added, had positive reactions to his project They think it's pretty food that it's something for a school project," McKinney said. ( t
