New home in an old space

Since 1974, the Zepf Center has provided desperately needed mental-health services to both youth and adults in Lucas County. Now, they’re expanding their reach and doing their part to revitalize a neighborhood as they move to take over South Toledo’s Hawley Building (on Hawley Street near Nebraska). Formerly known as the Educational Building, the 1898 structure has been used as a school, offices and residences, but has fallen into disrepair in recent decades. The Zepf Center’s new facility will revitalize the historic structure and will include 15 therapy offices for the Center’s youth clients, as well as group rooms for after-school programs and an observation room. Community members can be a part of the process through their sponsorship dollars. Donors can purchase a brick, a bench or sponsor an entire room. Contact the Zepf Center if you’re interested in making a difference for mental health. 6605 W. Central. 419-841-7701. —MD

Clean green

Clean out your home and office, and dispose of waste in a responsible way as The Andersons and Affinity Information Management offer electronics recycling and document destruction in a special event at The Andersons Toledo store on Saturday, October 6. If you want to safely dispose of unwanted items from phones to DVD players to computer equipment, or clear away unwanted paper without risking sensitive information, you can drop them off between 9am and 3pm and get them out of your life. Some 70 percent of heavy metals found in landfills come from electronic equipment, so it’s a great way to clean house and do your part to protect the earth. It’s free, but a $5 donation is suggested to help cover costs. (Most electronics are accepted, but don’t bring TVs, appliances, paint or batteries.) 4701 Talmadge Rd. 419-473-3232. —MD

Earth-friendly trade

Green thumbs can enjoy the sight of thousands of plants (and their respective gardeners) all in one place at the free Fall Plant Exchange on Saturday, October 6. The event is a chance to trade flowers and other bounty from the garden, as well as tools. Label your goods and bring them to the Exchange and receive tickets for each item you bring, which are used to “shop” the selection.

It’s “survival” of the fittest, but it’s all in good fun

Great game of terrain Our intrepid writer gets her paint on By Alison Wood-Osmun

The battle scene is littered with the splatters from two warring teams — the paintball battle scene, that is. Two teams trying to capture each other’s flag amid the rat-a-tat-tat of firing and dodging the supple, marble-size balls that splatter you with paint and eliminate you from the game is the draw at Portage, Ohio’s Bull Creek Paintball. The short drive (it’s about 30 minutes from Toledo) to the highly-ranked paintball spot is an easy way to ramp up your typical autumn excursion. Paintball is a strategic and invigorating game of tag. Unlike the usual arena style paintball, this is the only regional course in a natural setting and it garners “a roller coaster like rush” according to player Caleb Zaho. Forts, towers, bridges, and bunkers are tucked into thirty acres of a natural wooded area, providing unique challenges. In addition, the mature trees and uneven terrain create pockets of shadow and light for camouflage and vantage points.   Of the seven courses and games, to

It is in every way absolutely exhilarating.” Bull Creek Paintball is open Wednesday through Saturday by appointment and Sunday 11am-5pm. $35.00 admission (mention this article and Dukett says he’ll give you $5 off) includes gun, face mask, paintballs, and training/instruction for newbies. Minimum age to participate is 10 years old, and players under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Bring a picnic or purchase from the concession stand.  Schedule a party or team-building workshop.

Sun spots

The rise and possible fall of Mayor Mike Bell By Johnny Hildo “Leaping to escape the tower, Icarus felt a rush of exhilaration as the wings his father Daedalus had crafted bore him upward on the wind. Alas, in a fit of hubris Icarus decided to continue upward to approach the glowing sun. The heat melted the wax holding the wings’ feathers in place, and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.” —from the Greek myth of Icarus, 1st century BC Call it winner’s syndrome. You’ll recognize it from the world of sports, where a long string of victories builds overconfidence until the undefeated team is humbled, often at the hands of a seemingly lesser opponent. Wags tell us that sometimes a loss is needed to bring a measure of humility to those once thought invincible. A similar malady afflicts the world of city politics. Think Tom Noe, once king of the local GOP world when that party held all statewide elected offices and both legislative houses. The winning streak seemed like it would never end. Until it did, with Noe indicted and eventually convicted of misusing funds and all state offices but one reverting to Democratic control in 2006. Enter our own rock star, Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell. Earlier this year we started a series looking at contenders to topple the incumbent in next year’s municipal elections. Then we terminated the series with a column noting how popular Mayor Bell was and opining that no one with political sense would dare take on Goliath.

Yep, Hizzoner was soaring to new heights, getting within sight of god-like political pinnacles. The trouble is, he mistook god-like reputation for actually being a god. And like the fate of Icarus, we now see the possibility of the wings coming apart, precipitating a disastrous fall into the sea. Don’t get us wrong, Mikey P. has had a long string of gaffes and SNAFUs to his discredit, from alleged mishandling of federal funds at the Department of ‘Hoods to backing last year’s unpopular anti-labor initiative of Guvnah Kasich, SB 5. We’ve chronicled them in previous columns. It just seemed that those problems didn’t resonate with John K. Voter. His recent fit of hubris leaves a trail more likely to bring about his demise, however. Here are the latest. ^ Pushing for raises for his top executives after pleading poverty to extract concessions from thousands of lowest wage city workers. This is the sort of thing John and his fellow T-Town voters get, and it sticks in their craw. The average Toledo voter is in the same boat as the average City worker. Heck, thou-

sands of Toledo voters ARE City workers. These are folks who haven’t had a raise in years, have seen cuts to their bennies, and are therefore losing ground to the cost of living. Yet Hizzoner wants to reward those at the top of the pay scale, some of whom don’t even live in Toledo? Shocking. ^ Purchasing a luxury SUV for driving around potential investors. Believe me, John would love to do the same, toodle around T-burg with corner strobe lights a-flashin’. Problem is, John is barely making ends meet, feels lucky to have his unsteady income at all, and is hoping the patches on his ’98 jalopy hold long enough to get him to work next week. In the meantime, Hizzoner gets to insulate himself and his double-public-pensionplus-current-six-figure-public-income behind tinted glass for his trips with the uberrich while the hoi polloi like John can only watch from their crumbling sidewalks. ^ Driving around investors from one particular country. We aren’t necessarily xenophobic and understand that investment is needed for a T-Town revitalization. Folks with cash who want to lavish it thisaway are welcome no matter

their nation of origin. But frankly we’re tired of looking at that dirt patch along the river with the million dollar road leading no where still untouched over a year from the, quote, groundbreaking, unquote, for the Marina District. You know the foreign origin of the best recent investment in Toledo? Michigan. As in Lansing, from whence come the investors in the beautiful new Standart Lofts. Yet Hizzoner insists on continuing to court folks from the Pacific Rim. The countrycrush Mikey P. seems to have on China, given the lack of results, frustrates John and his ilk. Take heed of the ancient wisdom, Mayor Bell. What you need is a healthy dose of humility. Get out from behind the tinted windows of your rise to prominence and really get to know John and his neighbors, who continue to struggle even as the recession slowly lifts its crushing weight from the Swamp. Or like Icarus, your fall may be even swifter than your flight.

The Compassionate Guru

The Flexibility Queen “When you’re in the yoga room, you’re there just for yourself — it’s the one time in your life you can dedicate to just you. Yoga is for every body, no matter if you’re flexible or not. The most important thing when you leave the yoga room is that you feel wonderful and have mind body awareness. After 17 years of practice, I’ve learned that if I can bring inner peace, harmony and balance, I’ve done my job as a yoga teacher.”

JENN Mccullough Integration Yoga

After enduring years as an "obese" child, Zapata discovered the gym, newfound self-esteem and a new body. "You have an overall confidence when you feel as if you look good," Zapata says. His own struggle to get in shape gives him an appreciation for his clients' blood, sweat and tears. "It brings a sense of humility to my training."

Transformation Tip

"Some people like to slowly progress to the diet, cardio and weight training. If you want to see rapid changes, you have to do all of them with intensity. People that start off slow and try to casually work their way into it usually give up after just a few weeks because they don't see the results they want right away. Results don't come easy."

You had to be on your game everyday — in Vegas they don't settle for anything less than your personal best." These days Paulette's all about pushing her students to create the dance body of their dreams through her sassy approach, teaching pole and aerial fitness classes.

Transformation Tip

"Consistency is key. Pole and aerial fitness are wonderful because they combine strength training and cardio, and if you stick with it you'll see results. I've seen bodies transform over months — they are workouts in disguise, and they sculpt your body. Most people come to get fit, but the surprising thing is that they're feeling sexier because they're feeling more confident."

Kimberly Chapman TONIC

2221 River Rd., Maumee 419-794-4044

The Long and Lean Machine Kimberly Chapman’s body speaks more about her expertise than even she can — the mother of three still looks like a ballerina in her prime. The former dancer's long and lean physique is evidence of her dedication to Pilates and BeyondBarre (her third child was born in May, believe it or not). "In just three months of BeyondBarre and Pilates, I'm in my skinny jeans again and I feel great," Chapman says. We asked her for her top three fitness tips (and trust us, we made sure to take notes!).

TIP 1 Train with someone who inspires you.

You want someone who practices what they preach and is a walking example of what you strive to be. When you're crammed in a packed room without individual attention, it's easy to get injured or miss out on the maximum benefit of the move if it's not done correctly. Take classes from someone whose body looks like you want yours to be, then you know that they know what they're talking about.

TIP 2 Nothing shocks the core

like a good old plank exercise. When done in the correct discipline, plank can be one of the most effective ways to tighten up the middle section, especially for women that have had babies.

TIP 3 Draw power from your core, even

to sculpt a graceful-looking body.

your abdomen by pulling the abs in and up and rolling the shoulders back, the body naturally falls into proper alignment. I tell my clients to practice their Pilates breathing and posture when they are doing everyday activities, like driving the car or cooking. This way they are always strengthening their bodies and getting the most of those cleansing deep breaths.

That's what BeyondBarre is all about. Releve is the first position, a classic dance move — in layman's terms it means "to rise" or "raised heels." Shoulders are down, abs are in, feet are turned out — it's a very basic fundamental that sculpts the legs and improves posture and balance. There isn't a BeyondBarre class that doesn't incorporate it somehow. Plus it's fun for everyone to find their inner ballerina, even if they have no experience.

Transformation Tip

“My clients ask me the secret to a perfect blow out all the time, and they’re always surprised at my answer: Always blow dry the hair from root to end until it’s completely, 100 percent dry. It sounds like it wouldn’t make much difference, but the truth is when you leave it a little damp, the moisture in your hair will make it frizz and ruin the smooth look you were aiming for in the first place. The best way to do it is to clip it in sections and go piece by piece, aiming the blow dryer nozzle down so you get that shiny, sleek look. It take a little extra time but it’s so worth it!”

owner/stylist Kream Clothier

2150 N. Reynolds Rd. 419-537-8798

Transformation Tip

"Right now, for this season and its trends, a blazer is a girl's best friend. There are so many colors and styles — like looser boyfriend cuts and traditional tuxedo cuts — that it's really that staple piece in any woman's wardrobe that you can just play with. Your blazer can replace that traditional shawl or that wrap you wear with your cocktail dress, or it can go with jeans and heels. It's always a great office piece, too. If someone wants to transform their look, it's a great affordable piece to do it with. It's the new little black dress."

Steve Schoch

Sales Manager Leo Marks Jewelers 3435 Secor Rd. 419-531-1223

Transformation Tip

“When buying fine jewelry, I recommend thinking of how you will like it in three years. Fine jewelry should fit your personality and your style, not the style of the moment. From my experience, I’ve learned that when a client buys something that’s trendy but doesn’t fit their personality, they won’t wear it. For men’s watches, Swissmade is a great start. Most of the high quality watches are Swiss made, and Switzerland is known for producing the best watches. And when it comes to diamonds, learn the Four Cs: cut, clarity, carat and color.”

Always use a heat-protecting product when using flat irons or any hot styling tool. These salon products will keep the integrity of your hair in shape and also better maintain your color.

“Stay out of the sun! As a melanoma survivor I wanted to be able to offer men and women an alternative to UV tanning. Spray tanning is a very forgiving product — make sure if you exfoliate before application it’s at least three to four hours before your sunless tanning application. This allows for the natural oils in the skin to come back to the surface, giving a more even and darker UV-free tan.”

Transformation Tip

"Women put their hair through a lot — damage from heat styling, chemicals from hair color, even breakage from hairbrushes. It can lead to very dull-looking hair, so I recommend washing hair every other day (rather than every day). For one thing, it's easier because you're styling your hair fewer times during the week. It's also much healthier because you're reducing the amount of times you expose your hair to heat damage. If you're extra dedicated, you can use a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment once a week just to maintain that healthy, shiny look."

Transformation Tip

“I think when you see someone, and see how their hair looks, it provides some insight into their life. If it’s put together and styled, rather than disheveled, it makes a lasting good impression. When it comes to getting a good haircut, I always tell clients to bring photos. Pictures help explain what you want. You want to find a stylist that listens to you and does what you want, not what they want. Look for someone who asks a lot of questions and gets to know you and understand what you’re looking for. Ask for a style with flexibility and versatility, and make sure it works with your lifestyle.”

“When you want to reinvent yourself one of the first places to start is your hair. When it’s thick and beautiful, it really improves your self-esteem — and it can give somebody a whole new attitude. You don’t have to live with thinning hair because there are so many advancements now in that area of the beauty industry. Solutions for Hair uses thin skin membranes with human hair injected into them that are then grafted to the scalp. You can style it, swim with it, cut it — it becomes a part of you.”

But the place to start to transform your life is diet, exercise and stress reduction. Those are always going to be the foundations of good health. It just goes back to the fact that if you're unhappy with something about your body, be it the looks, the condition, the fitness, anytime you improve on that you're going to feel better."

Dr. Nick Dumas chiropractor

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

The HELPING HAND No pain, definite gain — it’s Dr. Nick Dumas’s policy since he became a chiropractor in 2006. The official chiropractor of 2009’S Racing For Recovery and three-time winner of TCP’s Best of Toledo ‘Best Chiropractor’ award has made a name for himself taking a holistic approach to healthcare. His preventative approach is a refreshing counter to the “fix it later” health culture we’re all prone to. “I was always fascinated with the capabilities of chiropractic care and what can be accomplished with it,” Dr. Dumas says. “I just want to help people live their lives to the fullest.” We asked him to share his top four tips for transforming your well being.



There is no Olympic athlete, no pro athlete, and usually no active person in any lifestyle that doesn’t have a chiropractor. You can make yourself less susceptible to dysfunction and enhance your training by seeing a chiropractor regularly, especially if you are someone who enjoys being athletic. My hope is that everyone would challenge their body physically in some respect, and rather than work through injuries and making them worse, visit a chiropractor who can help speed up recovery and enhance your performance.


Maintenance is a big thing. You maintain everything else in your life — whether it be cleaning your floor, brushing your teeth, changing your oil, taking care of your finances — so why should you neglect maintaining your body? It’s one of the biggest mistakes you can make, and it can cost you long term. If you’re not moving enough, you’re not eating well, and you’re not sleeping well, then you’re not living well. You’ll find yourself on the path to being a sick person. One of the best gifts you can give yourself is investing in visits to a nutritionist, a fitness trainer, a family doctor, and a chiropractor. They’re your first line of defense, and they’re as far as you’ll want to go in the healthcare system.


People sometimes find chiropractic care confusing. Instead of flooding them with numbers and information, I tell them to look for themselves. Sitting down and doing a little research online can help you so that when you come into the practice, you find yourself being less apprehensive and understanding what we do a little better.


Back pain is the number one leading cause of visits to the doctor. Just like you don’t wait until you have a cavity to see a dentist, you shouldn’t wait until you have lower back pain to see a chiropractor. We are a part of healthcare at the very early stages, which is in the maintenance of health and function of the spine, arms, legs. A lot of times people wait to visit us, which can cost them. While you can treat pain with pharmaceuticals, a chiropractor is one of the healthcare professionals who can help you maintain functionality with a lower risk of potential side effects.

Chronic problems respond wonderfully to Graston Technique. If you’ve had troubles with your muscles or joints for a while, it’s a method worth looking into — we use a unique tool to treat the scar tissue and improve your range of motion.

You saw them at the Olympics — stripes of bright blue and pink Kinesio tape adorning the ripped abs of athletes. Though he wasn’t at the games, Dr. Bryan Royer was already familiar with the look — he was trained by Team USA’s Olympic medical director Dr. Bill Moreau, in these new, hightech performance enhancers. “I always wanted to learn the techniques,” Dr. Royer says. “The more tools in your tool bag, the more ways you have to help.” Dr. Royer is the only Graston Technique expert and board-certified chiropractic neurologist in the area, as well as one of the few certified in Kinesio Taping.

Tip 3


Real health means taking care of your body by moving properly and eating real food. Exercise is very important, but you have to do the exercises correctly. Real food means it doesn’t come out of a package, can or drivethru window. Eat right and exercise, and you should keep the doctor away!

Tip 1


Chiropractic physicians can treat every joint in the body conservatively — without drugs or surgery. Most people think we’re just back doctors, but we do a great job at treating neck pain and headaches. Actually, some days I see more people for shoulder and foot pain than I do for lower back pain.

A lot of people turn to whitening as the first tool in improving their smile, which is great — we do inexpensive whitening trays in the office that are really effective. But whitening toothpaste whitens your teeth the way Soft Scrub cleans your sink — it's abrasive. We tell our patients to use a soft toothbrush and sensitivity toothpaste, because it's the least damaging to your teeth and gums."

We provide and recommend Invisalign to many people in the community. It is commonly known as invisible or clear braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible. You simply wear them over your teeth. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. What could be easier? Most importantly, by straightening your teeth, you reduce plaque build-up which is bacteria! And it improves your smile and give you tremendous confidence.

“Improving the look of your smile makes you feel better. There’s every option you can think of — bonding to change the shape of your teeth and straighten them in some way. There are veneers and lumineers, which are specially designed in a dental arts lab and placed over teeth to completely makeover your appearance. And it only takes two weeks! I haven’t had a single patient who’s had veneers that hasn’t said ‘I wish I’d done this sooner.’ There are studies that show that changing your smile is as effective as therapeutic counseling for improving self-image and confidence. To me, it’s the first place to start if you want to improve how you feel about yourself.”

"For years varicose vein surgery has been the ugly duckling of surgeries. It used to require three to four days in the hospital — now it's a small procedure with barely any down time. And in terms of value, treating varicose veins is one of the safest procedures with proven positive results at a relatively low cost. Improving the cosmetic look of your legs is one of the easiest ways to instantly boost your appearance."

Transformation Tip

“The nose combines form and function to a greater extent than any other part of the human body. Normal nasal and sinus function is vitally important to your quality of life. So often the functional and cosmetic aspects of the nose are intimately related. My surgical philosophy is that I first work to improve or restore your nasal and sinus function from the inside out and then I strive to enhance your facial features by creating a balanced, natural-looking nose. My goal is that following surgery, no one will even know you have had nasal surgery. If your nose is affecting your self-confidence or your health, my advice is to seek out a surgeon who is experienced in treating both the functional and cosmetic aspects of the nose, because both go hand in hand.”

Transformation Tip

“With all the technology that’s available now, there’s no reason for an adult to settle for a smile they’re not confident about. One of the best ways to fix teeth, later in life, is with Incognito braces. They’re placed behind the teeth, so no one can see them, and they’re very effective — treatment time can be even shorter than traditional braces. Invisalign is another great option, but it has its limitations, whereas Incognito braces can be used to treat a wide variety of problems. It’s a new technology we’re very excited about, and we’re the only people in the area to offer it.”

Legal brews to go

Toledo is about to howl for craft beer. Steve Wherry made offering “growlers” a first priority when he became manager of The Beer & Wine Cave in July. After an Ohio House Bill passed allowing retail businesses to sell grab-and-go beers, Wherry began work to become one of the first in the area to do so. “This is something that should’ve happened a long time ago,” Wherry says. “I’m glad I could beat everyone else and do it first.” Now, taking home a full, 64-ounce “growler” of a well-crafted brew is possible for just $13, or $10 if you bring your own bottle. “Growlers” ensure the beer stays unpasteurized and lasts a week. Wherry says other six-packs sacrifice flavor to make a longerlasting product. The Beer & Wine Cave, 4400 Heatherdowns Blvd. (next to Meats & More). 419382-6221. –ML

‘The ‘The Master’ Master’ not not quite quite aa masterpiece masterpiece

Much-hyped Much-hypedfilm filmaamesmerizing, mesmerizing,but butfrustrating frustratingexperience experience by byJason JasonWebber Webber Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) is an alcoholic The Master ★★ Rated R, 137 min.

His name is Lancaster Dodd. He has a fondness for Kool cigarettes, homemade liquor, singing sea chanteys and the sound of his own voice. He describes himself as a writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist, a theoretical philosopher “but above all, I am a man. A hopelessly inquisitive man.” Dodd leads a small but devoted group of ever-smiling, affluent people in a school of thought called The Cause, which focuses on the importance of discovering past lives through an exercise called “formal processing,” which consists of interrogation and forms of hypnosis. And then there is Freddie Quell. Recently discharged after serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII, Quell has a penchant for making rotgut liquor out of ingredients ranging from Lysol to jet fuel, a weakness for women, and a seemingly inexhaustible inner rage that leads him into fight after fight and job after job. “The Master” tells the story about what happens when Lancaster met Freddie and the result is one of the more mystifying cinematic experiences of the year. It’s also one of the most maddening and frustrating because it could have been so much more. The story goes something like this:


seaman during WWII, obviously stricken with post-traumatic stress disorder. He goes through a series of jobs after being discharged, from department store photo studio photographer to field worker. But due to his inability to control his temper and a compulsion to act out, he gets fired from every job and often gets his ass kicked over his mouth. One night in a drunken haze, he stows away on a small yacht, which happens to be commandeered by Dodd and his disciples, including his devoted wife Peggy (Amy Adams). Dodd recognizes Quell’s need for inner peace (as well as his ability to brew good homemade hooch) while Quell becomes fascinated by Dodd’s charisma and the message of The Cause. So Quell joins the group and discovers that Dodd has several wealthy benefactors who seek enlightenment through his formal processing tactics and mystical speaking. But soon Dodd goes to jail for fraud, and even Dodd’s own son tells Quell “He’s making it up as he goes along.” But is he? Many have accused “The Master” of being a thinly veiled biography about Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, but this misses the entire point. “The Master” isn’t about Scientology any more than it’s about Christianity, Judaism, the Church of the Sub-Genius or any other school of

Smooth-talking spiritual guru Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman, right) recruits disgruntled WWII vet Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) to his ‘enlightenment’ group thought. It’s about mankind’s search for inner peace in a world gone completely mad and how any of us—even you—can be duped by charlatans. While the film takes place in 1950 (a tip of the hat to production designer Jack Fisk for perfectly recreating the look and style of airbrushed ‘50s America), “The Master” feels very timely and certainly makes you think about the people we put on pedestals as our leaders and mentors. The name Lancaster Dodd could just as easily be Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Steve Jobs or Bernie Madoff and the film’s message would still resonate—watch out who you admire and follow because how do you know they REALLY have your best interests in mind? At a fanny numbing 137 minutes, “The Master” is one of those films that’s easy to admire but difficult to enjoy. When it gets down to it, we’ve seen the same themes

explored in other films, such as Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street,” a film that was not only a snapshot of its time but also a thrill to watch. The theater audience audibly groaned when the end credits begin to run because there’s no real denoument. It just ends with none of its questions answered. The thing is, while “The Master” is unquestionably the weakest and most unsatisfying film Anderson has helmed, there are still almost enough flashes of brilliance to recommend the film. Almost. The good parts—the acting, the set design, Jonny Greenwood’s mesmerizing score, the sight of Joaquin Phoenix cuddling with a sand sculpture of a nude woman —are so good they’re brilliant. “The Master” doesn’t work as a whole, but Paul Thomas Anderson is definitely a master of film craft even if “The Master” is anything but. He may have missed this time, but he’ll swing again. And when he connects…watch out.

Back for thought

Tackling issues from World War II to how the Jim Crow Laws affected college football to modern-day civilian bombings in the Middle East, The Toledo Library’s thought-provoking fall film festival is back. Film Focus, starting on Monday, October 8 with Barbershop Punk — a documentary about how a barbershop baritone singer gets caught in the middle of a landmark Internet file-sharing case — and continuing throughout every subsequent Monday in the month.

Our hero, Sam, has a daughter who is going through her can’t-stand-my-parents phase, which only exacerbates the problem.

Edgy politics

Throughout his storied career, American playwright and auteur David Mamet has always delved into politics. If not blatantly, then with some sense of subtlety. Especially when it comes to the politics of relationships and one-upmanship. Whether it be sexual politics in one of his earliest plays, Sexual Perversity in Chicago (1974); politics of the scam in American Buffalo (1975); office politics in his Pulitzer Prize winning, Glengarry Glen Ross (1984); politics in, and out of, the classroom in Oleanna (1992); and more recently, the politics of the courtrom in Romance (2005), a certain political climate infiltrates nearly everything Mr. Mamet writes.   With his 2007 play, November, Mamet takes a poison pen to presidential politics and specifically, a presidential election. In November, Toledo Rep’s Edgy Rep Series takes a stab at political relevance a mere 3 weeks before Americans go to the polls. Fortunately, there is no better playwright to jackknife America’s obsession with parties, Democrat, Republican and Tea, than the man who said, “People may or may not say what they mean … but they always say something designed to get what they want.” Quest for re-election And what President Charles Smith wants to do is to remain president. Unfortunately, he’s hit the skids. His poll numbers are down, he’s running out of money for his campaign, and nuclear war is on the horizon. His staff has given up and his wife is planning for life after the White House. With all of this going on, President Smith has to find time to pardon two Thanksgiving turkeys from the slaughter. But Mr. Smith is not quite finished being Mr. President and a simple attempt at PR (the aforementioned turkeys play a major role in this) turns into an all out battle to win the hearts and minds of the

Bringing it home, handmade

If Roberta Pei’s name sounds familiar, it should. The Toledo native is a niece of legendary architect I.M. Pei, and with her brother Gee she currently co-runs Middle Kingdom Designs in Beijing, China, selling handcrafted art. The two are back in the states, currently, and they’re eager to display some of their wares at the 25th Annual Country Garden Club Holiday Trunk Show beginning Monday, October 10. We caught up with her for a chat.

How did you end up in China, after growing up here? I’ve been living in China since 1981; I went over there for Owens Corning. And my brother’s been there since ‘89. A few years ago, my uncle was designing a museum in Suzhou. In the museum he’d left space for a museum store, which was a new concept in China. He asked my brother and me to run it, since we were living in China at the time. Neither of us had any retail experience, but he said “well, if you like to shop, you should be able to run a store.” We ran the shop in the museum for three years, from 20062009, then for a number of reasons, mostly involving the Chinese bureaucracy, we ended up moving to Beijing. Some of my

friends here have seen some of my products, and they approached me about this show. We’re looking forward to it!

What kind of work do you have to show us, here, at the Trunk Show? This is a sampling of items from our store. Pieces we could fit in a suitcase. These are all handmade by craftsmen who have worked in the arts for many generations. For example, we have somebody who makes bronzeware in the antique tradition, very classical Chinese. We have pots that are carved out of a special stone from China. We have some jewelry from one artist who’s a friend of mine. She takes classical jade from way, way back in history and does beautiful work to make really nice necklaces. We have sandalwood fans that are hand-carved and really quite ornate. Because we [started as] a musuem store, we wanted to provide museum-goers with items that were almost museum-quality but without that high price. We’re into those oneof-a-kind crafts where maybe the art is dying but there are still artists around who can do these things.

Toledo native brings unique Chinese work to Perrysburg by Matt Desmond

What feels most different about being back in the States? I have to be careful Gee Pei pictured in the Beijing store, co-runs how I word it (laughter). Middle Kingdom Designs with sister Roberta. Both places are so different culturally. My first reaction is to say the fresh air here, because the pollution is so terrible in China. There are some very warm people in China, but I guess it’s much more...sane here. Doing business here is so much easier. In China you have to know the ropes; it’s very complicated. It’s not a language issue, it’s just that they do things very differently. They require lots of forms to fill out, nobody trusts you. You have to deal with all the red tape. Here it’s just so much easier; it’s very business-friendly. Perrysburg Garden Club presents the 2012 Holiday Trunk Show, October 8-10. Preview party with dinner, $40, Monday 5:30pm.

“When you go smaller, you can speak louder,” says multi-media artist Yusef Lateef on Between Love and Words, his new exhibition — which opens at Bozarts on October 5 — that ventures away from his usual larger pieces; instead featuring a series of smaller drawings, paintings and collages. “The title points to a void or space between two things that are very open to interpretation — love and words,” he says. “I believe the space between these two points are worth describing through imagery.” These he describes as more intimate — with bigger work you can come in at any angle, but with these you take it in all at once.

Breaking it down

For Pauly Shore, humanizing politicians is where the real comedy is at by Scott Recker

Pauly Shore hasn’t always been a guy you would imagine taking seriously. But, his new foray into political comedy seems like a level-headed — and almost serious — approach into the highly tapped satirical raid on Capital Hill. His thoughts: Beneath all the mudslinging and promise-anything shit talk are normal guys. Beer-chugging, girl-chasing normal guys. And it’s all the more funny. Before swinging into Toledo’s Funny Bone on Thursday, October 11, the Toledo City Paper caught up with Shore to talk about Herman Cain, drinking with Obama and why Mitt Romney comes across as a sleazy used car salesman. You recently went to Washington and interviewed Larry King, Herman Cain and Ralph Nadar. What did you take away from that? My direction of the special is, believe it or not, is to try to make these people come across as normal — or cool. I think all these politicians are human beings like everyone else. I kinda wanted to break that barrier that they put up — that act, you know. I had them explain to me — and the audience — what is going on and why we should care and break it down so a third grader could understand. A lot of people aren’t into politics and don’t care; they just want to drink beer and go get laid. So, I kinda want to make the special for those people.

What sparked you interest in politics — or interest in making fun of politics—this campaign season? It was mostly timing. The fact that I’m 44 now; I’m a little older. It kind of teed up nicely: My relationship with Showtime and everything. I started developing it a year ago. Why do you think people have ability to be so enraged by public policy and so humored by it almost simultaneously? [laughs] I don’t know. I guess it depends on whose talking about it. If it’s a co-


October 03 • October 16

median talking about it, mostly we make fun of it. If it’s people who talk shit about whoever it is they talk about, they probably don’t have a sense of humor about anything. It’s pretty interesting. I also think that most people realize that all politicians are full of shit and they’re just over the lies. They pretty much say whatever it is they have to say in order to get elected.

Who’s the easiest person in politics to make fun of? Herman Cain is pretty funny. I would imagine the sexual harassment scandals make him an easy target. He’s a guy...he’s very smart. He used to turn over businesses and stuff like that and he’s just a guy, like everyone else: He likes girls, he likes to have drinks. So, I think that’s pretty funny. If you could have a beer with one politician, who would it be? For sure Obama, just because he’s the president. It seems like it would be cool to just kick it with him. He seems, whether for a politician or not, pretty level headed and mellow. And he likes to party. It seems like he likes to have a drink or, ya know, smoke a joint. It seems like he’s trying to take over that old, ‘which candidate would you rather drink a beer with’ competition with his own home brew and speaking on craft beer. Yeah, and Mitt Romney just seems like he has a stick up his ass. It seems like he’s a bad car salesman. Every time he waves, I think, ‘Did this guy just try to sell me a car.

SUN, oct 14

By dipping into the catchy hooks of pop-punk and the ambient thoughtfulness of indie rock, these Minneapolis rockers have etched themselves into almost two decades of altyouth music. Whether you think it’s smart or static, Motion City have never veered far from the sound that made them, instead opting for little tweaks: maturing their lyrics a bit, playing around with a Moog and a handful of safe collaborations. But how can you argue? People love those attractively warm melodies and big, jaded, simplistic chorus lines. 127 N. Main St., Bowling Green. —SR

You may want to start each day with a prayer so you have the strength to get through it. Mercury is retrograde; Mars, Neptune and Mercury all change signs, and there is a full moon. — BY SUE LOVETT

ARIES (March 21-April 19) On the 3rd Venus

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Venus

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Venus begins a stay in your fifth house on the 3rd, setting the stage for a happy month. On the 5th action shifts to your seventh house of relationships and new projects. This keeps you busy. No rescue until the 15th when family comes to your aid.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) On the 5th Mercury and Saturn both enter your sign and you make plans for the remainder of the month. From the 7th through the 10th Pluto aligns with Venus so relationships are fabulous. On the 15th people from your past return.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Mercury, your rul-

taking some energy with it. The week of the 8th is terrific. You are on the road the 13th and 14th enjoying football and festivals. The new moon the 15th brings new friendships.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You want to make changes at home but seek advice from loved ones. On the 5th good luck, fun and games take precedence over business. This continues until the new moon shines on the 15th. You need to work AND stay home, which is difficult.

CAPRICORN (December 21-January 19)

LEO (July 23-August 22) Hey big spender! On the 3rd Venus (the good guy) brings money. Find places to put it the 6th and 7th. The moon shines on you the 9th, 10th and 11th. You are comfortable as the center of attention. The new moon on the 15th says to buy a new iPod.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Venus moves into your sign on the 3rd. This is great for your love life. Entertain at home on the 6th and enjoy leftovers on the 7th. Thanks to the moon you stay on schedule the 13th and 14th. The new moon the 15th lights up earning potential.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) On the 3rd and 4th Venus is in your seventh house, which is great for romance and new projects. Also Mercury and Saturn make you want to learn more and travel so you can become smarter and go farther. The new moon the 15th brings money.

From the 4th to the 10th your love life goes well. On the 5th Saturn joins Mercury and you begin an adventure in every area of your life. Saturn has not been in this sign since 1985. Climbing the career ladder is easier. Finances look better after the 3rd. On the 5th work on a schedule to help career issues. The week of the 8th you are productive. Social events are great the 13th and 14th. The new moon the 15th shines on higher education.

Backyard party

Tim Wright, CSX Railroad

The Old Orchard Block Party was an idyllic fall night celebrating the distinctive neighborhood on Saturday, September 29.


Wright, a TCP fan who stops by our office when he's hanging around downtown, is six feet seven inches of uninhibited pant-less fashion. The kiltwearing, beer-drinking Wright appealed to us because he was so comfortable and confident in his own skin.

Okay. We'll start with the obvious: explain the kilt.

I have Scottish heritage. They're extremely comfortable. And most of the world doesn't wear pants. My other side of the family is German and Polish. I don't want to wear lederhosen!

All my coworkers want to know what's under there. [Laughs] If it's some asshole guy asking, I say 'It's your girlfriend's lipstick.' Another one might be 'a fresh breeze.' It's usually guys that are asking more than women, which is a little creepy.

Does being so out of the ordinary ever make you uncomfortable?

Groovy, baby

Jefferson Starship rocked the Valentine Theatre (and inspired a 60s’ era dress code) at the Summer’s End Weekend celebration Saturday, September 15.

I'm noticed no matter what. I'm the tallest person everywhere I go. I don't do it as a statement. I just wear it when it's nice out.

Do the guys at your railroad job know about your evening attire? By ALIA ORRA

The guys I work with know, I don't hide it. I think they're amused more than anything.
