Profiles Robin Reese

LCCS Executive Director looks back at career By Jeff McGinnis I have always wanted to... make my parents proud. What do you admire in people? I admire people that see the glass half-full. What is your pet peeve? Probably just the opposite -- when people can only see the negative about people or a situation. What is something most people don’t know about you? I am a Barbra Streisand fanatic. What are the words you live by? I tell my staff this all the time -- nice goes a long way, and just be good people. What advice would you give to the younger you? Have fun. More fun. Who is someone that you’d like to meet? Of course, Barbra Streisand, I would like to meet her. I would have liked to have met McCain, I would have liked to have met Barbara Bush, and definitely Obama. What inspires you now? That I have the ability to pass on some of the lessons that I’ve learned to people, especially in the social work field. I’ve learned a lot in my 34 years, and I’m in a position now to pass that on.

For over three decades, Robin Reese has worked with Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) in a tireless effort to protect area kids from abusive and neglectful situations. But according to Reese, if you ask the people closest to her, she’s had a passion for assisting people in the community even longer. “If you talk to my mother, who is still alive, she would tell you I’ve been doing this work my entire life. And so, I’ve always been a social worker,” Reese said. “I’ve always had a drive to help people. That’s just what my whole family is about -- I have a sister who is a social worker, also. So that’s kind of what we’re about.” Now serving as the Executive director of LCCS, Reese oversees a staff of over 300 in their efforts to provide protection to children. Nowadays, Reese said that she doesn’t get to work hands-on with the children in her care as much as she used to -being executive director requires a much broader scope and more administrative focus than she’s dealt with in the past. “Honestly, to make the work do-able for people on the front lines, because social workers are truly first responders,” she said. “I really try to look at the strength of families, because most families can really guide you on how to help them, if you take the time to really look at it from where their strengths are.” With challenges such as the opiate epidemic facing area families, Reese said that it is more important than ever for people in the Toledo community to help each other, if we are to protect our youngest and most vulnerable citizens. “Currently, we have almost a thousand kids in care, which is really not sustainable,” Reese said. “So what I say to people is, reach out and help people that are in trouble. We have to become a community of helpers at this point.”

What is the most important part of your morning routine?

My daughter’s smile makes me smile the most.

What should I do differently to maintain my oral health as I age?

As you age it is very important that you keep your dental appointments even in absence of dental insurance. Our office has different options for those who do not have insurance so to make dental care easier available.

What dental mistake do your clients often make?

Frequently people aren’t in pain so they opt to wait on treatment until they do have pain, infection or a tooth breaks. Most people do not realize that this can cause an increase in their dental expense as well as possibly the loss of a tooth.

Why do I have tooth sensitivity? What can I do about it?

Tooth sensitivity can be related to decay but can be due to gingival (gum) recession as well. This happens for one or two reasons or in combination. Brushing too hard and or clenching and grinding your teeth. A bite appliance can be used to help prevent further recession and bone loss.

Of Loss and Hope

A memoir about losing a husband By Jeff McGinnis Patty Slupecki’s voice amplifies when she talks about her late husband Mark, a guy who had a ton of friends. At his funeral, she remembers the line to pay respects seemed like there were a thousand people— a testament to all the lives that he had touched. “He was just one of those guys that everybody liked. A jokester, he liked to play practical jokes and push people’s buttons. Especially mine,” Patty said with a laugh. “Early on in his career, he was very career-focused. But after we had kids, he sort of re-evaluated his priorities. He turned things around, making his kids his priority, making sure that he was always at all of their events, and supporting them in everything they did.” In September, 2002 Mark, an avid runner and triathlete, went for a training ride. “He was training for the Sylvania Triathlon, which he participated in every year. And he went out on his bicycle for a ride, and was struck by a pickup truck.” For Patty and her two children— a daughter, who was 10-years-old at the time, and a son, who was only four— losing Mark completely changed everything. The trajectory of their lives were irrevocably altered. And for Patty, much of what she felt was an aimlessness, like she had no one who understood what she was going through. She felt she had no one to ask for advice and help.

“I was completely lost. I didn’t know what to do. I had my family and friends and their support, and I was very blessed that they were so wonderful. But I didn’t know any other widows,” Patty said.

“There was no one that I knew at the time that was like me.” Finding hope

That feeling inspired Patty over the past 16 years to reach out to other women who had experienced this kind of heartbreak, to let them know they are not alone. She now offers help as a public speaker and life coach, and recently completed a memoir on her experiences, Suddenly Widowed. (See sidebar on this page.) “The book is my story of how I went from my life just being completely upended to finding a new normal. It is about learning how to rebuild my life, and how I went from being a victim to becoming someone who can triumph and be a mentor and a leader for other women experiencing this kind of loss.”

Slupecki recently held a book release and signing event at Wildwood Metropark, with all proceeds benefiting the Toledo Ride of Silence, an annual event which commemorates and raises awareness of bicycling fatalities. Her biggest hope in sharing her story, though, is that other women never have to feel as she did in the days following Mark’s passing. “The most important takeaway I want people to have is hope. I want people to understand that there is always, always hope,” she said. “For widows who have lost a close loved one I also want them to know they’re not alone. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Whatever it is they’re doing, it is okay.”

Patty Slupecki was 37 when she lost her husband in a bicycling accident. Patty Slupecki’s Suddenly Widowed: A Memoir of Survival is her first book, though it’s not her first attempt at writing. She had written, but never finished, numerous other books throughout her life. “My childhood dream was to be a writer. I’ve started probably a dozen or so books since college, none of which I finished. With this story, I’ve tried writing multiple times over the years, but just couldn’t get past the first chapter.” Then, this year, she set her determination to share her story. Starting in January, she took two months off, traveled to the beach and just wrote. “I just put everything on hold and decided that was what I needed to do. And so I did it. I finished writing and it went through the editing process.”

Social media benefits may favor older generations By Erin Marsh

People’s opinions are generally polarizedover social media. Some tout the benefits while others argue that the negatives outweigh the positives. KEEPING IT PERSONAL

Margaret Penn, Yogaja Yoga and Yogaja Shop owner and mother to three

young adults, employs social media daily for her businesses, but avoids it for personal use. She laughs that she has a Facebook page only because that’s how they organized and planned her high school reunion. In Penn’s opinion, social media feeds the ego. The Ottawa Hills resident said, “I don’t need the whole world to know everything about me. I don’t understand why people want total strangers knowing and seeing everything they do. I don’t get it.” She continues, “It’s not about keeping secrets; I just don’t need to know what people are eating for dinner or what vacations they’re taking, and I don’t think they need to know those things about me!” Sylvania resident Nadine Nowak, retired RN, mother, and grandmother, said: “I do not use or participate in social media; I’m not comfortable with the responsibility of liking and disliking content. Everyone has the right to have an opinion, [but] it is so be critical when using a keyboard. I prefer to build a personal relationship rather than have a screen persona.”


Jane Korte, retired administrator, mother, and grandmother SOCIAL (of grandchildren ages 2-18), holds a different view. She uses social media CONNECTIONS: to “stay in touch with family, friends, and the world.” Keep in Touch with Korte of Sylvania explains, “Quite frankly, I jumped on Instagram and Friends/ Family Snapchat because my kids and grandchildren are on there, and it gives me a way to keep in touch and see what they’re doing. Because they are Prior to Facebook, the primary all tech savvy, they have taught me how to use these social media sites, way to keep in contact with outand I love the connection I have with them.” of-town family and friends was over Korte recently returned to Twitter as well, and she says, “I love the the phone. Actual conversations cannew [Twitter] format, and because I don’t watch nightly news anynot be replaced, but social media promore, Twitter is a way for me to keep in touch on a broader level.” vides the opportunity to connect daily She concludes, “It’s all about being and staying connected to with a plethora of friends and family. people, places, and things!” With social media, specifically FaceDonna Seed, social work manager, yoga teacher, book and Instagram, you can view phomother and grandmother (of grandchildren ages 6-13), lies tos, hear about seemingly inconsequential somewhere in the middle on the social media debate. She uses events that might be forgotten by the time Facebook regularly but not any other platforms. With Faceyou connect via phone, connect daily or even book, Seed says, “I like that there is a sense of community--a multiple times a day, and keep up with nuconnection and sharing of our life experiences. I also like merous people all at once. that I can read news articles, watch a video from family Joining the social media platform that your and friends, and have certain Facebook groups that are loved one uses the most can connect you in a way dedicated to learning.” that infrequent visits and the occasional phone As for the other platforms, such as Ins call cannot. tagram, Seed reflects, “I am NOT a picture tak Sue Briddell, co-owner of Harmony in er. I feel those platforms are over-dedicated to Life, retired high school business teacher, the self, and I struggle to find how this is and mom to four adult children (ages 25-33), says that productive.” social media allows her to keep up with friends, family, She then adds, laughing, “I think this is and former students--many of whom are not local. She just one of those generational issues uses Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and while she that I have not been able to ‘cross does not personally post very often, she “enjoys keeping over’ with technologically!” up with friends and family...and reading updates from my news feeds.”


October 2018

Why Bother with Social Media? If opinions are so split on the use of social media, why bother? While some of these platforms are certainly geared toward millennials, the benefits for those of older ages are still clear.

STAY RELEVANT: Know What Your Kids/Grandkids are doing and How Social Media Impacts Business

COMMUNITY: Connect to Your Community and Local Events Social media is one of the best ways to connect with your larger community. Whether that means staying informed about local Toledo events and news or connecting with others who share similar interests, social media can be a reliable aide. West Toledoan Donna Seed explains that she is a member of various Facebook groups that are dedicated to exploring, learning, and studying. She views Facebook as “a platform for sharing ideas, discussing issues, and connecting from around the world.” While many think of Instagram as a feed of “selfies,” it can be used as a platform for diving deeper into your personal interests. There are feeds dedicated to running, cooking, yoga, makeup, interior design, art and much more. The most troublesome part of Instagram is taking the time to follow worthwhile individuals/companies who share your interests. Once you have a solid foundation, you will be supplied with informative and interesting posts pertaining to your hobbies, as well as updates from friends and family.

Whether or not we like it, social media is here to stay. It is a vital part of the lives of many people under 40, and social media can be an excellent way to learn about and bond with children and grandchildren.

ons and her s lan: Jane C n e rt re o d il K The randch ), James; g Connor (7 Kyle and ce ra (11), G ), 8 (1 Alexis n (2) and Nola Quinn (4)

While social media is relatively tame for adults, kids can post cruel things to and about one another. Being present on social media can help you keep an eye on the ones you love. Whether you worry about the photos your teenage grandson may post or what your young grandchild is viewing on Instagram, it’s helpful to be in the know. Sue Briddell (Harmony in Life) and Margaret Penn (Yogaja Shop and Yogaja Yoga) agree that social media is essential to running a business. Briddell says, “As a business owner, social media is an effective way to get out our information about classes, services, yoga classes, and concerts.” Penn concurs: “Social media is part of having a business. I think it’s a great way to reach many people in a very expeditious time frame. When it’s used as a communication tool and to update people, social media can be very beneficial.”

While anyone affected by a death may feel a need to share the news on social media, common etiquette is to let the closest loved ones post first. Because social media has the power to reach vast networks, it can also be a helpful tool for a family to use to notify family and friends with service and memorial preparations. When posting, sharing or adding comments of sensitive information-such as death-make sure you understand who will be able to see it. Be careful with details. With all the social media privacy settings, one may think no one can see a post when they actually can. In 2015, Facebook introduced a feature that lets people choose a legacy contact--a family member or friend who can manage their account when they pass away.

Savings Financial Apps Can Save Time, Money Pick the Best Product for You By Linda Koss “Financial apps” describe a broad range of products that help you save and grow money. Among the most widely used apps are those that help you budget and track your money, including Mint, Spendee, and Nred Wallet. Credit Karma keeps track of your credit ratings and their movements. There are also investment apps that help you stay informed about investing news, or let you invest. Some investing apps include Personal Capital, which lets you keep track of your various investments’ performances and Robinhood, which offers free bare bones trading on stocks, options and crypto currencies. Other financial apps are right under your nose. Key Bank, Fifth Third, Directions Credit Union and other banks and credit unions have their own apps that allow you to keep track of your accounts and loans, transfer funds between accounts, and

schedule bill payments. Call your local financial institution and ask if they have an app, or check the App Store (for Apple devices) or Google Store (for android devices). Consider the strengths and weaknesses

Many are free, but make their money through advertising. They may show you ads, or send email notices for financial products from advertisers. Budgeting and billing apps like Mint and Spendee may ask permission to access your banking and other financial information to synchronize with them. But according to Ryan Rigaux, longtime user of Mint, you often need to check behind the app and perform your own input. “(Mint. com) will automatically tag and input credit card purchases, but not cash and checks.” And not always

correctly. “I bought lunch at Michael’s (a local eatery) and they put it down as a hobby purchase,” confusing it with the national hobby . Getting help and keeping secure

Melissa Jeter, the head of the Financial Literacy Committee at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, who has given several presentations on financial apps throughout Northwest Ohio. She has helped patrons download apps. “I work with the patron to see how comfortable they are with computers, and make sure they will know how to get into their app, and the website too, if it has one. Knowing how to navigate is very important. “Call ahead at a branch library to set an appointment if you want help”. The librarian may refer you to a colleague who is comfortable with apps. Jeter stresses that while a librar-

ian may get the app on your phone or tablet, librarians can’t provide financial advice. For this, you should consult a local bank, financial advisor or financial coach. Jeter has suggestions on how to keep your sensitive information secure. “Look for encryption (of information) on a site, also for two factor identification (in which the site asks for another proof of identification if you sign on from a different device.). Choose sites that prompt you to update your information regularly.” Also, “If you are away from home, use your data (through your carrier, like Sprint or Verizon) rather than public WiFi. Better yet, just go home to enter your information on your own secure WiFi.” Also, Jeter says, if you choose an app that also has a website, you will be able to access your records if your device is lost or stolen.

I work out nearly every day and eat pretty clean. Do I still need to be concerned about weight gain? So far I haven’t noticed any changes in my weight.

ANSWER: Your healthy lifestyle is certainly a good start to warding off midlife weight gain, which is often an issue as women move into menopause - even for those who eat well and exercise regularly. Over the next several years, you may find that to stay at your current weight, you’ll need to increase your activity level and ensure you stick to healthy eating habits. The final years leading up to menopause are called perimenopause. They are characterized by menstrual irregularities. During perimenopause, many women start experiencing a variety of symptoms that come with menopause, including weight gain, due in part, to hormone changes. Declining levels of the hormones estrogen (after menopause) and testosterone (with aging) contribute to a loss of muscle mass, which leads to fewer calories being burned at rest and with exercise. The hormonal changes also affect where fat is stored, leading to a tendency for fat accumulation around the midsection.

In addition to hormone changes, other symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, sleep problems and mood changes, can interfere with a woman’s ability to adhere to healthy lifestyle measures. That can contribute to weight gain. Genetic factors also may play a role. If your parents or other close relatives experienced weight around the abdomen as they got older, you’re likely to do the same.

Considering all these changes, maintaining the same level of exercise and calorie intake you have always had may no longer suffice for weight maintenance. You may need to check your eating habits and add additional exercise to your regular routine.

Exercise routine revised

All this may seem rather daunting as you look ahead. But keep in mind that these positive lifestyle changes can reap many health rewards as you get older. Maintaining a healthy weight lowers the risk for a variety of health concerns, including high blood pressure; heart disease; Type 2 diabetes; and certain kinds of cancer, such as breast, endometrial and colon cancer. In addition, avoiding excess weight as you age can make it easier to stay active over time. And, in the long run, that can help you look and feel better. If you have questions about menopause symptoms or changes you experience in perimenopause, talk with your health care provider. Treatment is available to ease symptoms and make this significant life transition easier to manage. - Ekta Kapoor, M.B.B.S., Women’s Health Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.

Sebastiano’s Italiano Italian classics with a spin By Cynthia Nowak Friendly for families and foodies

A relaxed evening and a set of four sharp appetites shared among friends — the perfect combination for dinner at Sebastiano’s Italiano, which glows in its polished setting like a local jewel. The Sicilian-inspired restaurant snuggled into a strip mall across from the Stranahan Theatre has been a Toledo staple for more than 15 years — first under Sebastiano and Helene Caniglia, then for the last five years with Jonathan and Sarah Sagaser, at the helm. The Sagasers had been regular diners at the Heatherdowns Blvd. restaurant, and local chef Jonathan “got a wistful look on his face” whenever he would consider owning the restaurant, said

Sarah. The couple got their chance when the Caniglias decided to retire. A family effort, like that of the original owners, Jon and Sarah are “raising our three little ones in the kitchen.” Italian experience

As well as being a family environment, the small kitchen produces wonders for diners. Our party chose classic Italian fare — spaghetti with 12-hour meat sauce is a deservedly popular dish, a hearty tomato base enhanced by herbal complexities, and a generous sampling of ground beef. For a meatless option, the linguine dish, Roasted Peppers with Mozz, topped with roasted red peppers, lemon, olive oil, capers, oregano and mozzarella is downright symphonic, as well as being a festival for the eyes. The citrus notes complement the creaminess created by the olive oil and cheese, and the flavors play together perfectly. The build-your-own pasta entree offers a choice of sauces, including Alfredo. The meatballs deserve special praise, both in seasoned tastiness and for their manageable size. It wouldn’t be a full Italian experience without at least one pizza. The house-made, hand-rolled dough is a favorite — reserve your’s early with your waitress, because it sometimes is unavailable from heavy ordering on

very busy nights. The spinach, mushroom and tomato topping — anchored by plenty of cheese — satisfied the vegetarian in our group. We must call out, the creamy basil salad dressing. House-made, it’s a spark of pesto-kissed summer sunshine that can brighten up even the darkest evening. Sweet finish and sounds

And save room for the desserts! The tiramisu — served in an oversize cup — is house-made, and is gaining legendary status. Jonathan makes the gelato as well, and the lemon-cream

cake drizzled with raspberry sauce is another delight. I spoke with a regular, enjoying a plate of mussels bathed in a smoky wine sauce. “This is just a nice place,” he said. “Groups, singles, families all get a good welcome and really good food.” A piano player entertained a full house from an understated corner stage, delighting one family group, prompting a grandma and grandchild to break into a gentle dance, eliciting smiles from around the room. It’s the kind of place where upscale food meshes with down-home friendliness.

Home ‘Fall’ for a new season Bring the outdoors in By Susan Gibney After a sultry summer, crisp autumn air provides homeowners with inspiration for transformations, inside and out. Florist and interior designer Wendy Gray, owner of Waterville’s 3rd Street Blooms, says you don’t have to spend a lot of money to infuse your home with fall. “Fall is the perfect time to repurpose things you already have around the house or in the garden,” Gray said. “I love using acorns, grape vines and dried flowers to bring the outdoors in.” Gray’s eclectic home in Waterville changes, not only for the seasons, but anytime she acquires something with texture, rich tones or dimension. Her favorite places to ‘shop’ are in her own basement, the curb outside neighbors’ houses and online marketplaces. “Honestly, why spend money when there are so many treasures for free?” Gray said. Her most recent find was a weathered shutter, which she used to create interest as the top of a side table. She outlines some fall decorating tips: n Use earth-inspired color themes like

gold, sepia tones and russet n Find decorating items that will go from mid-September through Thanksgiving – keep the palette autumn tones instead of full Halloween – “get more life out of your decorating” n Look for summer plants that are starting to dry out – they make perfect centerpieces and wreath additions n Set your table for fall – gather and bundle items for unique napkin holders; put petite pumpkins, gourds and acorns in cylinders or place autumn leaves and tall branches in large glass vases n Re-use galvanized buckets, wood boxes, dresser drawers, ladders and pallets as holders for fall foliage n Create a cozy conversation area with seasonal blankets and pillows, candles and mirrors n Add unexpected items to your front porch to greet guests – wagons, lanterns, chalkboard signs, benches, wicker baskets and wreaths add extra dimension and interest n Plan a cohesive color scheme to tie all your decorations together – it’s OK to forgo classic orange, reds and yellows for grays, light blues and whites
