Long overdue praises to Johnny Hildo for the April "Men are Men: The vicious cycle of violence against women" article. I applaud your voice against the epidemic of violence toward women.

A sculpture garden walk, and a down and dirty run By Alison Wood-Osmun

Perrysburg pick-me-up

Go Perrysburg!, the grassroots effort behind Perrysburg’s recently approved public transportation levy, has started the temporary organization Neighbors Helping Neighbors to provide car services until official public transit begins around July 1. The service is simple: those in need call the coordinator, who will match them with a driver. For $1, riders can go anywhere in the city of Perrysburg or be taken to a connection point where they can reach Toledo, on weekdays from 6am-9pm. 419-279-4009. —AW

Remembering Vietnam

The Toledo Museum of Art’s Georgia & David K. Welles Sculpture Garden is a place where sculpture and nature meld perfectly; where you can stroll along a pathway and have your own interpretive and tangible experience. The garden is home to 24 amazing man-made art pieces which harmonize beautifully with the flowing lines of the garden’s lush trees, shrubs and perennials. The greenery, a highly enjoyable component on its own, serves to enhance each sculpture by adding texture and soft color as sunlight dances across each piece’s surface. Toledo Museum of Art, 2445 Monroe St. 419-255-8000. www.


Park in the main lot and then pop into the museum to pick up a sculpture garden brochure. Walk the garden in the reverse order of the map to get the best views. Head toward Blubber (#22) around the corner from the UT Center for the Visual Arts (look for the Zen Garden behind the glass). I don’t want to disclose any more about the sculptures and spoil your own adventure, but I love the sense of arrival right before you head down the path to see #21 and a hint of what lies beyond. To truly enjoy your own individualized stroll, approach each piece slowly — take in your surroundings, the incredible

Starting Thursday, June 6, Toledoans can pay their respects to Vietnam Veterans by visiting the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) The Cost of Freedom Traveling Wall. The mobile wall is a slightly smaller replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., displaying all the names of the military members who were killed or missing in action in the Vietnam War. The memorial will be open to the public at International Park through Sunday, June 9 at 4 pm. (Also on Sunday, June 9, at 2 pm, American antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan will visit the memorial as part of a weekend Toledo tour; for more info on Sheehan, visit Free. 26 Main Street. 419-350-9640. —AW

branching and the rough bark of t h e oaks, hornbeams and maples, the flower fragrances and the artistry of how the pieces are set within the landscape.

Tasteful respite

When you’ve finished your tour, head to the TMA Cafe to taste the fabulous food crafted by Executive Chef Drew Ruiz and his skilled team. To recapture the garden feel, dine in the cafe's large glass windowed area or get your meal to go and lunch outside on the picnic tables you passed along the way. Drew’s favorite part of the museum is also the Sculpture Garden. “It expands my perception of what art can be, how it can beautifully blend in — how the garden brings each piece to life,” he says.

Down and dirty

It’s time to schedule in some high-octane, dirty fun at the upcoming Mud Factor 5K Run on Saturday, June 22 at the Ida West Track and Trail course in Petersburg, Michigan (a short drive from Toledo). This action packed obstacle course is a way to challenge yourself and have an over-the-top, fantastic time. But keep your mouth closed — there will be lots of mud! Can’t make it? Visit the website and live vicariously through the race video. Go to for registration fees, forms, and maps. Deadline is Tuesday, June 18.

A royal visit

Perhaps no butterfly’s wings are more well-known than the pristine orange ones that belong to the monarch. Less well known is just how incredible the little insect's life cycle is — monarch butterflies fly “the equivalent of a marathon race every day” as they migrate from the northeastern U.S. to Mexico every year. That epic journey is being threatened by habitat loss and climate change, so The Oak Openings Region Chapter of Wild Ones has launched a Wild for Monarchs preservation and advocacy campaign. They’re hosting events through summer and fall to raise awareness, including an educational station on Saturday, June 15 during the Toledo Botanical Gardens’ Wild about Wildlife event, from 10 am-noon.

Gabriel’s trumpet

Sounding the alarm in City Politics By Johnny Hildo Latest City Politics news flash. Theresa Gabriel has made the plunge! This might not seem like that big of a deal. But as they say in France, au contraire, mon frère! The addition of Gabriel to the field for Toledo City Council at Large helps provide a glimpse into the craziness that is Frogtown Follies at their very swampiest. Never mind the oddity of the way Gabriel pronounces her first name. No plain ol’ “Tuh ree suh” for this long time FOCer (Friend of Carty). Instead, she pronounces her name “Thuh ree suh.” Sorta like The Reesa but not quite. But that’s all so much whistlin’ in the wind.

Carty the undead

The fact that Gabriel was Carty’s right hand, go-to girl for years is more to the point. The Finkly influence refuses to die, even as Carty hisself has stayed out of the political running. He nevertheless acts as the Frogtown elder statesman, pontificating on everything from the performance of Mayor Bellbottoms (C Fink is not impressed) to the renewed Council candidacy of former Mayor Smilin’ Jack Ford (Carty is a big fan, which is odd considering Carty ran against Ford when he was the incumbent Mayor in 2005 and beat him). Gabriel isn’t the only FOCer to extend the Finkly shadow across the political landscape. Two of the three pitchmen for changing the structure of Lucas County guvmint to a charter system were FOCers in good standing, including former Finkly Chief of Staff Herr Robert Reinbolt. Suffice it to say the eerie Finkly presence won’t dissipate anytime soon. Then there’s the fact that Gabriel was long rumored to be the Republican candidate for Toledo mayor. That field is overcrowded already with the incumbent, Independent Mayor Bellbottoms, and two high profile Ds, current City Councilman Joe McNamara and County Auditor Anita Stepping Stone Lopez. Then there’s twotime mayoral candidate Independent D. Michael Collins, and Independent president of a city AFSCME union, Alan Cox. Plus the Libertarian candidate, whose name you are free to forget, and newly minted R but longtime wing nut, Opal Covey. That’s three Independents, two Ds, an L, and a crank case. Not a credible R in the lot. The fact that Gabriel has foregone trying to fill that role says volumes. It might say that she realizes she has no chance in a blue moon to win, with three high profile candidates and surrounding cast of thousands. It might also say that she doesn’t want to share the R label with


June 05 • June 18

Covey, a self-avowed prophetess whose former prophecies about the inevitability of her election have been slightly inaccurate. It probably says that Gabriel doesn’t want to be the torch bearer for the insanity of the Jon Stainbrook-led LC GOP, a role that Covey is much better equipped to handle, being a complete goofball and all.

Spirit of seventy six

So Gabriel has instead announced her candidacy for Council. And the lifelong Republican has further declared herself to be an Independent. And the 76-year old Gabriel’s stated purpose is to bring the voice of the elderly to Council. And the former owner of a Monroe Street bar has further said that Council needs the voice of a small business owner. First, let’s consider her decision to run as an Independent. Her mentor C Fink famously ran as an R and an I before finally figuring out that, ideology be damned, if you want to win you’re best served to just call yourself a D and be done wit’ it. Gabriel is now taking the same path. Not sure she has the remaining longevity to make that final transition. As for the age thing, we’re no experts, but we’re not sure “I’m old!” is an effective campaign strategy. In part because the size of your target demographic will only decrease through the years. Gabriel has not taken the time to explain what issues of interest to her age group are so unique that they are not also of interest to others. Or why the rest of us who aren’t pushing eight decades should care to vote for her. She also must not have taken the time to check the backgrounds of current council members. Several have run their own businesses, either as realtors, lawyers, or landscapers. She doesn’t bring anything that unique to the table. Including the fact that her campaign rhetoric is empty, poorly researched, and generally unconvincing. To sum up: Gabriel is illustrative of the pure silliness of city politics. Without which this humble column couldn’t exist. Welcome to the race, FOCer T!

Get to know the caring professionals at the forefront of Toledo’s healthcare

Dr. Christopher Perry Rhinoplasty Specialist ENT/Facial Plastic Surgery

They’re the people you look to wh en you want to keep your health in check. Have you ever thought about th em beyond the white coat? We interv iewed the area’s top doctors and healt hcare professionals to find out their personal inspirations, philosophies and patient stories. Read on to get an inside look at what makes them tick.

5800 Park Center Court, Suite C 419-574-9100 /

What inspired you to become a doctor?

My mother contracted polio when she was a child. She was left with facial paralysis on one side of her face. She had reconstructive facial plastic surgery at the Mayo Clinic, which was just fascinating to me — she was my inspiration. She always told me that I was going to be a doctor. It became my dream — I never wanted to be a fireman, or a policeman or an astronaut. I wanted to be a facial plastic surgeon to help people like my mother. What area of medicine really fascinates you? I think where my education and my training and my passion for medicine dovetail is with surgery on the nose. I thrive on a challenge, and so while I love all aspects of facial plastic surgery, I found that rhinoplasty is the most challenging, the most elusive in order to achieve the best, reproducible results. There is certainly an art and a science to rhinoplasty.

What approach do you take to medicine? Simply the golden rule: Treat others like I would like to be treated. That’s my philosophy in life, that’s my philosophy as a doctor.

What’s one thing your patients would be surprised to know about you? I played third base in college and semi-pro baseball. The hot corner. I was scouted by the Minnesota Twins but turned them down because I wanted to be a doctor.  

What inspired you to become a doctor? I grew up in Garnett, South Carolina, which has a population of about 300. I wouldn’t be a doctor without my parents’ guidance. Even though neither one of them did anything medically related, they were still wonderfully bright people who were nurturing and great role models. It’s a tough profession to pursue, but the beautiful thing is I didn’t know how grueling the path would be. What approach do you take to medicine? The thing that I always tell

patients is “I want to do right by you.” For me that means listening to my patient’s complaints, doing a thorough exam, arriving at and explaining their diagnosis, and reviewing their treatment options. The hard part is maintaining the fidelity of that process when you’re treating a wide variety of people. Communication is really important to me.

Dr. OLIVER JENKINS ear, nose and throat

Toledo Clinic ENT Sinus Center of Excellence 5800 Park Center Ct., Suite C 419-724-8368

What potential medical advancements excite you? It may not be in my professional career, but when we will get to the point of doing

gene therapies, it’ll be a whole new ball game. It’ll be a paradigm shift.

What’s one thing your patients would be surprised to know about you? I used to practice in Beverly Hills, California— I did my share of taking care of Hollywood types.


June 05 • June 18


Dr. Mark Neumann Doctor of osteopathic medicine 1715 W. Dean Rd., Suite B (across from Bedford High School) 734-847-4700 / 419-474-4700

What inspired you to become a doctor? The desire to help people. What’s your healthcare philosophy? Your health is a marathon — which, when you look

at the big picture, that’s really where it’s at if you want to have quality of life. The foundations of health never change: diet, exercise, and stress reduction. It’s a lot easier to stay well than to get well.

What medical advancement are you excited about? We now have a laser that treats musculoskeletal conditions — shoulder pain, back pain. It’s a pain-free alternative to drugs and surgery that we’re getting excellent responses to. What do you look for in a doctor?

When I look at a physician, I feel much more comfortable, especially if I’m looking at them for long-term health, if they look like they are concerned with their long-term health. If you’re looking at long-term health, then you want someone who lives and demonstrates that.

What something that would surprise your patients?

I’m a motor head. I love older American muscle cars. I don’t think my patients could imagine me out there burning rubber, but that’s something that I like.

What inspired you to enter the field? I was inspired to

become a dentist to help create beautiful smiles and also help people get out of pain to achieve a healthier smile. I love to concentrate my efforts on cosmetic dentistry — straightening teeth with Invisalign (invisible braces) or placing porcelain veneers to create a brighter and straighter smile.

What patient interactions really impacted you? The

most important thank you I always cherish is when a patient is in intense pain and we are able to get them out of pain either through root canals or extractions. The biggest satisfaction we get is when they smile and feel relieved of pain. The other big satisfaction is seeing the change cosmetic dental procedures have on people who hide their teeth because they are embarrassed of their smile. When they are done and are able to smile comfortably, it’s a big deal to us and makes us very happy in return.

What is the goal in your practice? We are a very car-

ing, compassion, and gentle dental team who aspire to make everyone feel like they are number one and continue to be proud of their smile. We cater to cowards and try to treat everyone with great care!

really enjoy the placement and restoration of implants, whether it be one tooth or an implant-supported, complete denture. I get the most hugs from denture wearers who get the implant done and are confident to go to a restaurant with no worries that their dentures will come out.

What do you look for in a doctor? Someone who is compassion-

ate, smart, experienced, and has a sense of humor.

What’s one thing you wish your patients would do? I want them

all to be committed to their own oral health.

What would surprise people about you? I don’t think many of

my patients would be surprised, but I enjoy escaping to the great outdoors — hunting, fishing and skiing are my passions, as well as spending time with my family.

What inspired you to become an orthodontist? I wanted to be

an orthodontist from the time I had braces, at about age 13. I became a pediatric dentist and did that for nine years before going back to school for two more years to finally become an orthodontist.

What part of the profession interests you most? Orthodontics

What’s your claim to fame?

I enjoy working and learning more about the elderly population. That’s where our industry has to go — it’s a huge population we have to learn to work with effectively.

is a great area because most people are happy about what we are doing to them. Not always thrilled with the mild soreness, but the smile that they have when we’re finished is a fantastic reward to the patient, family and us.

What patients impacted you most? The most memorable patients I have are those with cleft palates that may need treatment over a period of four to 12 years. We become family.

What inspired you to become an orthodontist?

What advancement in the field has really excited you? Through

Medicare people can basically go to the gym and workout for free. What’s of interest to me recently is a FLEX program where we can start working with seniors in a group exercise setting at their churches and senior centers. Exercise is a cure-all. Medication masks the problem, but we can actually fix it.

Dr. Jennifer Ludwig

Honestly, I first considorthodontist ered orthodontics in junior Drs. Simon, Haerian and Ludwig Orthodontics high.

As I explored career choices more, orthodontics still fit, but it was no longer about a cool car. I enjoy working with so many different personalities in collegues, coworkers, and patients. It makes the world so interesting. Dentistry offers a lifelong learning environment, flexibility in my schedule and how I use my degrees. There is traditional practice, teaching, humanitarian missions, military, administrative — many opportunities.

What do you look for in a doctor? Someone who listens and understands that all the skill in the world is useless if the practitioner and patient do not have the same goals of treatment. What colleagues do you admire? My partners — they always want to improve care, and they’re honest, hardworking, and giving.

What’s one thing you wish all your patients would do? Really listen at the initial visits — a little preventative knowledge goes a long way. And TAKE YOUR TIME when brushing.

Cont. from pg 13

Dr. Muhammad Hameed, M.D. medical oncology University of Toledo Medical Center Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center, 2920 Transverse Dr. 419-383-3747 /

What inspired you to become a doctor?

Health is valued above other things by most people. When people get sick it disrupts their normal way of life and doctors have a great opportunity to have a positive impact on their life. This very rewarding and my main inspiration for becoming a physician.

What medical advancement is coming around the corner that you think will impact healthcare significantly in the future? I am excit-

ed about the increasing role of molecular testings in cancer patients and its role in determining if patients would benefit from specific treatments. It can help with personalized health care, enabling treatments tailored to each person’s needs.

What’s one thing you wish all your patients would do? I like to encourage patients to ask

questions, so that they have a clear idea about their disease, prognosis and treatment.

Dr. Frank Barone, M.D. plastic surgeon Evolv Medical Aesthetics 2000 Regency Ct., # 204 419-720-2008 /

What medical advancement excites you?

What excites me in medical skincare is the new technologies and topical products that can dramatically reduce the signs of aging, and at the same time lower skin cancer risk. And the other area is breast cancer reduction — they’re identifying breast cancer risk in younger women and those who find it appropriate are having preventative mastectomies. We can reconstruct the breast and lower the impact of the mastectomy.

What patient interaction impacted you?

Dr. Jon Frankel dentist

5012 Talmadge Rd., Toledo / 419-474-9611 4359 Keystone Dr., Maumee / 419-893-0221

I would say the mothers of the babies in Operation Smile [a charity that sends surgeons pro bono to correct facial deformities] who, without even knowing you, hand over their baby to you to do a cleft operation, and trust you enough to take care of their child. I think that is very striking. And many of the young mothers who’ve had breast cancer or metastatic cancer and know they’re not going to be cured; when you see that it’s very heartbreaking. I always remember the character, and the strength and composure that they show, despite those struggles. That’s really something that impresses me.

What’s one thing your patients would be surprised to know about you? I have a son

who’s trying to be a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. “My father’s a plastic surgeon” is perfect, fertile ground for a lot of jokes!

What inspired you to become a dentist?

chiropractor Harmony Chiropractic 3829 Woodley Rd., Suite 1 419-517-5055 /  

How do you approach healthcare? Our goal at Harmony Chiropractic Center, Inc. is to help return people to health, to create balance in their bodies and brains. We want to create harmony in their lives by eliminating pain and allow them to return to doing the things they enjoy. What patient interaction has impacted you the most? The experiences that affect me

the most are when patients tell me about things that they are now able to do that they couldn’t do before. One 12-year-old boy who had postconcussion symptoms for over two years was thrilled after he was able to go to a roller rink with the flashing lights and loud music and not have hypersensitivity or a headache. It had been years — his eyes would hurt from the lights in the classroom and his school work was suffering, but with treatment, he steadily improved. That case is special to me because it combines two of my specialties, sports medicine and functional neurology.

It was almost inherited! My father, Dr. Sheldon Frankel, had a dental practice here in Toledo, my uncle is a dentist, three of my cousins are dentists, and my sister and aunt were dental hygienists. Taking care of people through the dental field seemed natural.

What do you love most about your job?

I love enhancing smiles. The technical side of things interests me, like placing implants. But the medical side interests me too — stopping the disease process. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.

What do you look for in a doctor?

What do you look for in a doctor? What kind of physician would you send your family to? I look for a doctor that treats the

I want someone who’ll take his time, has the knowledge and intelligence, and is concerned about comprehensive care.

whole person. I also look for a physician that is willing to work in cooperation with other healthcare professionals. A physician should put the care of a patient above ego, and know that the answer to the problem is not always medication or what body part you can cut out. Cont. on pg 17

fan of rap music.

Dr. Jeffrey Schmakel optometrist,

Director of Vision Improvement and Sensory Learning Programs, Schmakel Eye Care 3454 Oak Alley Court, Suite 209 419-578-0057 /

What’s your approach to healthcare?

Always “see” the whole person, not just a pair of eyeballs!

What medical advancement are you excited about? The research that is being done in regards to

autism, sensory integration issues and visual stress relief and their potential for prevention and treatment.

What colleagues do you admire?

It is a tie between Dr. Ken Gibson, O.D and Mary Bolles. Ken because he developed the The Vision Improvement Program that took traditional vision therapy and cranked it up, allowing it to be completed in a shorter time frame with maximum results. Mary because she was a warrior and a “voice” for her child that had autism. She created The Sensory Learning Program that has helped thousands of children and adults with sensory integration issues.

What’s something patients would be surprised to know about you? My brother, Jim Schmakel, is

FACES Skin Health Experts 6595 Secor Rd., Lambertville 734-568-6100 / Facebook page: Faces

How do you approach medical care? More than anything, we want

people to have an enjoyable, happy, fun experience. We like to laugh, tell stories. I think people want to be entertained. Orthodontics is a happy time in a person’s life because I’m creating smiles that will last a person’s life.

What approach do you take to medicine?

I take a holistic approach — I am particularly interested in wellness and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. As a plastic surgeon, I have access to many plastic surgery options from liposuction to tummy tucks. But I lost all of my baby weight (I have two sons) with diet and exercise alone. I continuously counsel my cosmetic patients that if they have 50 pounds to lose, they should spend their money on a personal trainer and/or a nutritionist, not on plastic surgery! I practice what I preach.

What do you look for in a doctor? My philosophy is people don’t

care how much you know, they only want to know how much you care. I think technology is good, but it still doesn’t replace interpersonal relationships. People need to have explanations. They want to know that someone listens to them and what their concerns are.”

What do you wish all your patients would do? If I could have one

wish, I would do away with sugar in food. Sugar is a toxic substance to the body, whether for oral or general health. Especially liquid sugar, like soda.

Dr. Nick Dumas,

chiropractor Rapid Relief Chiropractic Center 4210 Sylvania Ave., Suite 102 419-474-6500 /

What inspired you? My dream was to help people and to try to keep people

healthy. I came from a healthy household — my parents were always exercising, so it was something I was interested in, health and healthcare.

What are some common mistakes you see patients make? If I could have a dollar for every time a labor or union construction worker comes in and says “If only I’d seen you sooner” — they’ve worked hard for their million dollar pension, but now can’t pick their grandchild up at the beach or enjoy life. They were uneducated on proper health. Early detection with yearly x-rays and check-ups is so important to prevent that.

What innovative treatments are you really enthusiastic about? Manipulation Under Anesthesia is for people who are suffering from chronic pain and can’t handle the normal rigorous treatments such as physical therapy or chiropractic care while being awake. It’s not only for chronic pain but people who want to enhance their daily performance. I have people come in from all over the country to be treated with it. Therapies like that are groundbreaking and we’re proud to be some of the only people performing them.

tion for women who have mastectomies for breast cancer. While I don’t treat the breast cancer directly, I have had so many women tell me that while I may not have treated their breast cancer, but I “saved their life,”  their “whole life,” by reconstructing their breasts after mastectomy.

What potential medical advancements do you think will impact healthcare significantly in the future? I am wor-

ried about the automation and technologydriven efforts that are attempting to separate the physician’s eyes and hands from their patients. While CT scans and applications may be able to detect diseases with efficiency, I still believe that if you see your role as a physician in a wholistic way, then these technologies will separate us from our patients and compromise the important healing that comes from the direct patient-physician relationship.

What’s one thing your patients would be surprised to know about you? I’m an

amateur bodybuilder.

that for your pet, whether it be a dog, cat, parrot, ferret, or even a reptile, the importance of annual wellness exams can’t be overestimated. One year in a dog or cat’s life is the equivalent of four or five years for you — if you only go see the dentist or MD once every four or five years, you’re going to have health issues.

surprise any clients, but my hobby is also my profession. To me, being voted Best Vet by the Toledo City Paper is the absolute highlight of my year. It sort of validates what I’m all about — I want to be the very best. So what they might not know is the level of commitment that I bring. My wife would say I need to figure out how to tone that down a bit. [Laughs]

How do you interact with patients? Dentistry is kind of unique from things like medicine. People come in here with a toothache and it can be pretty excruciating. They’re in severe pain and we’re able to fix it, usually that day, and they feel 100 percent better. It can change everything about them, so it’s very gratifying.

What do you look for in a doctor?

The same kind of things that I try to do. I look for compassion, sympathy and an understanding of what the person’s going through and care about their overall wellbeing. Compassion is the biggest thing.

Big C’s Smoked Barbeque brings comfort food to downtown Toledo By Emily Gibb

Inside an average-looking downtown office building, Big C’s Smoked Barbeque is serving up Southern-style flavor. When patrons walk through the door of Big C’s Smoked Barbeque, they are greeted by owner Charles Collins’ smiling face in the open kitchen. Collins is living his dream. The eighth of 10 children, he thrived in a family who loves cooking and loves fun, he says. These days, he still sticks to the basics he learned from his mother while growing up in Mississippi. Collins began grilling in his teens but discovered “real barbeque” while in the Army during the ‘80s. He saw a man in Georgia using real wood to smoke the meat, which fueled the passion that led him to open up his own barbeque catering service 10 years ago. “When you say grill, grill is just what it is ... You’ve got that hot, intense heat. You can Google barbeque and I bet somewhere in there, it says ‘cooked low and slow.’ That’s barbeque to me,” Collins said. Before opening the restaurant on Michigan Avenue three years ago, Collins got his start on the street corner with his signature log cabin trailer. It’s a mobile, fully-equipped kitchen on wheels complete


with a smoker.





Charles Collins, who learned the art of barbeque in Georgia, puts the finishing touches on one of his delacacies at Big C’s Smoked Barbeque in downtown Toledo When it comes to catering with his cabin, his wife is his “wingman,” he said. His son and daughter, now in their early 20s, help out occasionally as well. “You can hire me, but if she’s not coming, I’m not coming. I’m a family man. I like having my family around,” Collins said. Inside the cozy restaurant or alongside his smoker in a parking lot, Collins stays true to his family’s Southern roots. “When we first started offering pulled pork with the coleslaw on it, people looked at us like we were crazy, but that’s how we do it down South,” he said. After a little while, word of mouth worked in his favor and his customers promoted “get it with the coleslaw on it” to others. The rest is history, he says. Big C’s started catering graduation parties, weddings and other events after the mobile set up helped get their name out. Despite the success of his catering business, Collins said opening the

anticipated. “Out there, people can see and taste your product. The product sold itself. When I got here, I was counting on the same thing, but it didn’t happen like that. It took time,” he said. Beyond his signature pulled pork, ribs and beef brisket, the restaurant also serves breakfast all day, deli sandwiches and a myriad of sides, like tater tots and baked beans. These days Collins and his crew are too busy to get back to the corner much, but he says he’s enjoying where things are going. “I have good days and I have bad days, but I really like doing what I’m doing,” he said. Big C’s Smoked Barbeque, 316 N. Michigan Ave., (Across from the downtown library.) Open Tuesday through Friday 11am to 5pm. 419-243-1100.

Turning to the stage

JaJuan Turner has found his niche on and off Toledo’s stages By Allan Sanders It’s not too much of a stretch to talk to playwright JaJuan Turner and think that you might be talking to a young Tyler Perry. After all, Turner, at the age of 42, has made a cottage industry of slowly creating the same kind of buzz Perry was known for in his early years as a struggling writer for Atlanta stages in the early ’90s. And while Tyler Perry started writing as therapy in response to welldocumented familial problems, JaJuan Turner began his career as a reaction to the violence around him in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. In an effort to avoid the mean streets and the lifestyle that had claimed many of his peers, JaJuan, whose journey led him from Flint to Toledo, began to write short stories as a youngster in grade school. By his own accounts a “big reader,” he pushed to get his stories published, without much success.

Overcoming disappointment

The road to a burgeoning theatre career was not without similar obstacles. His first experience was being cast (or so he was told by the producers) in the lead role in a production of a play traveling what is known as “the urban theatre circuit.” The play was called Wake Up, and after all the rehearsals and the phone calls to relatives and friends that he was doing this big play which was paying him a decent wage, Turner discovered that he was only an understudy for the actor (Carl Payne, aka “Cockroach” on the old Cosby Show) who would be playing the part when he joined the cast a month before opening. Despite the disappointment, Turner discovered that he had an inherent love of theater. He formed a production company, New Life Productions, and wrote his first play, The Game of Life, in 1992. While not a monster success, the effort was encouraging enough for him to continue tweaking Life while beginning to write other plays. “The [writing/producing] experience was my first realization that I could do this,” he says. A 3-year sidetrack took him to Northern California with his girlfriend and their baby, where he discovered a true freedom, not just in his creativity, but in all facets of his life viewpoint. It was an eye-opening time in his life and Turner regrets leaving Oakland, where he was living, but family obligations called him back to Flint.

Shifting gears into Toledo

On New Year's Day in 1997 the hand of fate reached out to Turner yet again when he was traveling north on 75 from central Ohio after visiting a friend. As he was about to exit Ohio, going through Toledo on his way to  Michigan, his transmission gave out and he was stranded here while he got the money together to pay for repair work. But a funny thing


June 05 • June 18

happened while his car was in the shop — he decided he really liked Toledo, and so he moved to the Glass City. Since moving, he has self-produced several plays under his new company, Turnerman Productions, including The Game of Life at the Ohio Theatre and his upcoming premiere in August of Captivated at the Maumee Indoor Theatre, co-produced by Nikesha Russell (the first time he’s worked with a producing collaborator). Captivated is so early on in production that the project does not even have a web page, but TCP will report on the project as it comes closer to fruition. Beyond his passion and perseverance, what really separates him from other self-driven young theater impresarios is that he's nearly deaf. It's hard enough to create and sustain a theater with two ears with an art form that requires a sense of hearing, but to be able to write, produce and direct while only hearing muffled, distant voices is a feat of Beethoven-like focus.   To his credit, Turner makes no big deal about what others might see as a hindrance. So when a question is posed about his ability to keep up with the demands of a theater and actors with his limited ability to hear, he studies the question in the air above, and answers with the polish and confidence of a man who is not about to let go of his dreams just because his eardrums aren't cooperating. “If I didn't do this,” he says, “I wouldn't be JaJuan Turner.” Turner can be contacted at 419-490-4214.

Local Author Heralds Horses

For local author Rob Wahl, writing runs in the family—his brother, Jan, has written several children's books. Hall took that tradition forward when his novel, Ride the Giant Wolf, was published by BearManor Press last month. The book outlines the discovery of the first wild horse in America by a Native American, Flying Fox, who mistakes the beast of burden for a giant wolf, hence the title. Fox and his horse eventually bring peace to two warring Native American tribes. Wahl said his novel is a loving tribute to the great adventure stories that captivated him as a child; but the novel has literary aspirations as well. "When you can be constructive and thought provoking, it’s good," Wahl said about his mix of entertainment and high-concept writing. If the book sells well enough, Wahl said he may write a sequel about the first encounters between Native Americans and European explorers.—JS

A One Man Army

Martin Nagy takes on the world one artistic adventure at a time by Steven J. Athanas

Nagy meeting with Arusha Women’s Art Network in Tanzania. When Martin Nagy was two-years old his Mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and though he admits he never got to know her, it set him on a lifelong path, and he's never looked back. “My Dad worked a lot to pay medical bills, so I had to work.” His voice cracks while telling this story. He started with a lawn mowing business at the age of eight, and sold it when he was twelve. At Start High School he began to explore his artistic side, working with a decorator, doing art work and faux finishing. This experience also whet his appetite for traveling— which we'll get to in a bit. there is no way to tell Nagy's whole story here for two reasons: 1) There's too much to tell for this column, and 2) he's still at it – the story isn't near over.

Far beyond driven

Nagy completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from BGSU in 1971. He's never forgotten one career-changing experience, under professor Conrad Pritcher. “This guy—150 people in a lecture hall—walks in, writes his name, his office number and his telephone number on the board, and said ‘Y'know education's up to you,’” Nagy recalls. “‘You can create any project, do whatever you wanna do. Here's the date you need to turn it in, and I'll grade it on how well I think it'll succeed.’” Pritcher disappeared, according to Nagy, who says only five people finished the course. Nagy knew immediately what he wanted to do: create a community arts program. One thing led to another, and after graduation, Nagy approached Maumee Valley Country Day School, which at that point had no arts program. Two weeks after an initial meeting with MVCDS, the school asked when he could start. It's these kind of entrepreneurial adventures that have kept the 64-year old (“I listen to that Beatles' song 'bout once a week,” Nagy says) sharp and focused. Nagy still felt there was more he could do. In 1983 he founded Arts Council Lake Erie West, “with a mission to build creativity in the community, increase cultural participation, and engage people in the arts experience.” This mission took the physical form of the Common Space Center for Creativity at 1700 N. Reynolds Rd. (which has since expanded to include Common Space Too on Holland-Sylvania,

The space on Reynolds gives studio space for artists, musicians, yoga instructors and a plethora of other creative folk. “Common Space, besides being a community center for social and cultural education programs,” says Nagy “also houses programs for people with mental and physical disabilities, unwed mothers, senior citizens, and volunteer programs through the court systems, to name a few.” But what Common Space started as and is mostly known for is “an incubator” for artists—a professional space for driven,c reative folks like Nagy himself. “We've had the icons of the Toledo art scene,” Nagy says, including Pete Beckmann, Tom Martin, and Jean Holden. In fact, Toledo City Paper was founded at the Common Space. Nagy is also organizing the 28th Arts + Sciences Creativity Camp at Common Space “I now have what I call 'grandcampers'.” Those are children of alumni of Nagy's Summer camp. “Jennifer Hollander has been the theater director for the last 3 years. She was a student of mine,” he says proudly.

Restless and wild

The itch to do more struck again— in 2010 Nagy led a delegation and conducted teacher in-service art and music workshops in two Tanzanian cities, resulting in arts programs being kept alive in that country. He's been taking artists from the U.S. to various European and African countries ever since. In addition, he has co-directed and edited several books, including “The Legacy of Family Businesses” (which was translated into Arabic for use as a textbook) and “Art – In a Woman's World (Art Exchanges USA – Tanzania).” These adventures have also taken him to Lebanon, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates. Nagy doesn't seek out the ego gratification that some in his position might. He truly has the essence of someone who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty and help people all over the world, another one of Toledo's best kept secrets.

Good Things Come in Twos

The art of Carol Imes-Luscombe and Constandena Mandros makes a perfect pairing, like peanut butter and jelly. So perfect, in fact, that the two artists are teaming up for their second exhibit together at Hudson Gallery. Imes-Luscombe's career as a printmaker has led her to master the monoprint—printed paintings that are only made a single time. All of her work is unique, but this batch of prints, according to the artist, focuses on beauty. You won't see this sort of work anywhere else this season. Constandena Mandros, meanwhile, puts her years of experience behind lush, full and colorful images—the kind of work that can take a viewer to another headspace. Together, their work makes for another must-see exhibit at Hudson Gallery. Free. Open house Friday, June 7. 6-8pm. Hudson Gallery. 5645 North Main St. Sylvania. 419-885-8381. This exhibit will run until Saturday, July 20.—JS

Creative Walkabout

On June 13 the Glass City's arts community is once again showing off the immense concentration of creativity that is thriving downtown during the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo's Thursday Art Walks. The second Thursday of the month will highlight the galleries, businesses and the artists that make up the "Arts Zone" area of Downtown Toledo— which is bordered by the Warehouse District and UpTown neighborhoods. The walkable routes and many sights & sounds transform the Arts Zone into an open gallery. This year the UpTown District Association is opening up Adams St. with more food vendors and artists along the street, as well as, circus performers, music and outdoor films. “Walkers” can also engage in different art projects like transforming a piece of “urban cast off” into a colorful 3D art form at Manos Community Garden with Lourdes University Art Students and Staff. And there will be pedicabs available for fun, scenic rides back and forth from the Warehouse District to UpTown. For more information on how to register as a food or arts & crafts vendor for upcoming Art Walks visit Thursdays, June 13-September 12, 6-9pm. Free. Downtown Toledo.—JG

Frankie’s Inner City / Thursday, June 6 With all the local funk, jazz and independent rock floating around, it’s easy to forget that Ohio has one of the most vital hardcore punk scenes in the United States. And in that scene, Cleveland breakdown-dealers Ringworm are royalty; they cut their first record in 1991. Their music is as energetic as it is acidic. How acidic, you may ask? Well, they call Ringworm’s singer the “Human Furnace” for good reason. Expect a set culled from their 2011 album, Scars, as well as their critically-acclaimed debut, The Promise. Support at this show will come from Chicago’s Encrust, who recently played town as direct support to TCP-featurted artist Author and Punisher. $10. 8pm. Frankies Inner City, 308 S.

Walk this way

The historic Woodlawn Cemetery is showing signs of new life with the Woodlawn Walkers program, a weekly event that’s part of a five-month series promoting exercise and recreation. The Woodlawn Walkers, now in their third consecutive year, takes place every Wednesday at 9 am through October 2. The hour-long walks cover a long loop around the cemetery and feature Woodlawn's director, Patty Toneff, as a nature guide who points out the various trees and foliage which make their home in the historic cemetery. Facts are also shared about the monuments and tombstones of the park during the walk, making the event about both exercise and education. For more details, call 419-472-2186 or email Free. 1502 W.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) The new

moon on the 8th brings lots of invitations from old friends. Your June calendar is packed. You won’t miss a graduation, wedding or festival. This is hard on your budget so economize when entertaining on Father’s Day.

LEO (July 23-August 22) On the 7th Neptune retrogrades in your eighth house so finances are confusing. Until the 12th you’re like a dog chasing its tail. Your sensibility returns the 13th. You are ready for another party on Father’s Day. VIRGO (August 23-September 22) You need to double-check everything concerning a partnership or new project. A party the 8th is expensive for you.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

A little stress comes your way from Mercury starting the 7th. Too many events are scheduled so you have choices to make. The week of the 10th is less hectic, but you need to pick up steam the 15th and 16th.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) On the 7th, Neptune, your ruling planet, retrogrades. This takes your energy with it. The week of the 10th passes quickly. A partner encourages you to take a leadership role on the 15th and 16th. Father’s Day is relaxing.

Carlos, "gallerina," Toledo

Museum of Art

The Sylvania Community Arts Commission celebrated the return of the Maple and Main Art Fair on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2.

Carlos, like J.Lo and Prince before him, prefers to go by only one name. That restriction didn't deter us from featuring the shorts-clad TMA employee in our Style Sense column — he rocks prints like nobody's business. We stopped the one-name style man to discuss his fashion inspirations.

How do you view getting dressed?

I like to think of individual pieces of clothing as pieces of art and I curate my wardrobe accordingly. But I'm not into fashion.

Why not? Deet’s BBQ’s Trevor, Bob and Lisa Deeter with Darryl Moneyham and Bobby Springer

Fashion is a lie. It's this unattainable thing that's actually about selling fragrances and suitcases. I'm more into style. Style is a tangible representation of your personality.

How did growing up in Toledo impact what you wear?

Scott Gage and Samantha Rousos

Maybe it's not even a Toledo thing, it's a Rossford thing. I was an odd animal there. I was the only brown kid, the only Jewish kid. Being out there gave me license to get away with wearing things like a linen caftan. People just assume that's my native costume. If you're going to stick out anyway, you might as well be as weird as you want.

What are your style inspirations?

The 2013 king and queen of the OWE Festival, Arts Commission Director Marc Folk and local attorney Sarah Skow

You down with OWE?

This summer my inspirations are photos of my dad from the ‘70s — he was a dapper man. He had a Perry Ellis thing going on. My other inspiration is the character Benny from City of God. I want my whole wardrobe to be nothing but floral shirts and the tiniest shorts — Brazilian favela style.
