Hearing postponed The trustees Tuesday also agreed to postpone a hearing to decide a request from a Woodville Road business owner to rezone two parcels from R-2 residential to B-2 business. The trustees had been scheduled to consider the request after the township zoning commission last month voted to not recommend a zoning certificate be issued to Jim Mlynek, who is seeking the rezoning. He’s been using the parcels to temporarily store piles of leaves that are used to make compost at his nursery business on the other side of Woodville Road. Continued on page 2

1,000 acres of wetland habitat

Howard Marsh opening for birding fest By Scott Carpenter Director of Public Relations Metroparks Toledo A new park near the Lake Erie shore will expand fishing, birding and paddling opportunities in a region of Ohio where outdoor enthusiasts celebrate spring holidays with walleye, warblers and watercraft. The park is expected to open just in time for the 2018 Biggest Week in American Birding festival May 13-18, hosted by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory. The festival will draw tens of thousands of visitors from across the globe to the shores of Lake Erie. The biggest beneficiary of all, however, may be the lake itself. Howard Marsh Metropark, opening in late April, will also put Metroparks Toledo, the regional park district developing the nearly 1,000-acre project, a step closer to fulfilling its promise of a park within five miles of every home in the county. “It is the largest project we’ve ever undertaken, one of our most important projects from an ecological standpoint, and extremely timely for our region given the

...being able to restore 1,000 acres so close to the shore is a rare opportunity.

With the contract with Mercy LifeStar for 24-hour emergency medical service set to expire at the end of March, Lake Township Fire Chief Bruce Moritz said Tuesday he’s confident the township will be able to assume responsibility for the service. The township trustees Tuesday approved the purchase of a Toughbook Tablet for use in the Medic 50 ambulance by paramedics that will be linked to the computer assisted dispatch system used by Wood County. The tablet cost $4,051. The trustees also approved the purchase of EMS uniforms for $2,117. Chief Moritz plans to staff the township EMS department with part-time paramedics and emergency medical technicians except for a full-time coordinator. Under the agreement with the township, LifeStar provides two paramedics per shift to respond to emergency medical calls while the township provides housing for on-duty personnel and use of the emergency vehicle. To date, the trustees have agreed to the hiring of about 18 EMTs and paramedics from outside the fire department. Chief Moritz said many current members of the fire department will also be available to staff the EMS unit.

recent troubles we’ve experienced with Lake Erie,” Metroparks Toledo Executive Director Dave Zenk said. Half of the wetlands in the Great Lakes basin are gone. In western Lake Erie, where just 10 percent of the original 300,000 acres of wetland remain, every acre counts. Howard Marsh is the largest new wetland restoration project underway on the Great Lakes. The property, known historically as Howard Farms, is the last remaining large tract of land in the Western Lake Erie marsh

region. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife has been interested in the property for more than 20 years, but was not able to come to terms with the owner. When Metroparks successfully negotiated an agreement in 2008, the Division of Wildlife contributed half of the $6 million purchase price. Metroparks and the Division of Wildlife entered into a management agreement for fishing, hunting, trapping and wildlife recreation and conservation at the marsh. The other half of the purchase price was paid for with a $1.76 million grant from the Clean Ohio Fund Greenspace Conservation Program and $1.24 million from Metroparks. Converting Howard Farms into Howard Marsh required additional partnerships and funding. Metroparks contracted with Ducks Unlimited, the international wetlands conservation organization, to design the wetland habitat infrastructure, and with SmithGroupJRR, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to design the public amenities infrastructure.

EMS Continued from front page The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has authorized Mlynek to use the site for the leaves. Mark Hummer, township administrator, said members of the zoning commission met in executive session during their hearing on the zoning request, which is not allowed by the Ohio Revised Code, and will have to hear Mlynek’s request again. The zoning commission is scheduled to meet April 18. “We’re going to do it the right way,” Richard Welling, a trustee, said in response to a question from Joe Zemenski, a resident of Bailey Road, who asked why the trustees’ hearing had been postponed. Zemenski and other Bailey residents have opposed the rezoning request, saying they have concerns about drainage problems and other issues at the site when leaves are piled there.

Park forums

The Wood County Park District invites Wood County citizens to attend Community & Parks Open Forums to learn about new opportunities for nature and cultural education, and outdoor recreation. The District has added many new features and amenities at the 20 nature preserves it manages, and will continue to add more in the future. The public is encouraged to visit these open forums to learn about what is new and upcoming, as well as to share opinions which can will help shape the future of the parks. Meeting dates and locations include: • Thursday, March 15, 7-9 p.m., W.W. Knight Nature Preserve: Hankison Great Room, 29530 White Rd., Perrysburg. • Saturday, March 24; 1-3 p.m., Wood County District Public Library meeting room, 251 N. Main St., Bowling Green. • Thursday, March 29; 6-8 p.m., Way Public Library, 101 E. Indiana Ave., Perrysburg. • April 14, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Pemberville Public Library, 375 E. Front Street, Pemberville. • Thursday, April 19, 5-7 p.m., Walbridge Library, 108 N Main St., Walbridge. Light refreshments will be provided. For more info, visit www.wcparks. org.

Howard Marsh opening for birding fest Continued from front page The Division of Wildlife committed a total of $4 million to help fund the wetland restoration, with Metroparks providing a 25 percent match. The Division’s contribution was reimbursed with dollars from the federal Pittman-Robertson Act, an excise tax on hunting and fishing equipment used to fund habitat restoration. Ducks Unlimited obtained a $2.8 million grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to assist with construction. A contractor, Mark Haynes Construction of Norwalk, Ohio, began work in June 2016 and finished last fall after moving enough dirt – approximately 700,000 cubic yards – to fill the first 24 floors of the Empire State Building. Nearly 30,000 tons of stone was hauled in, and before the proj-

ect is done, 12,000 trees and shrubs will be planted. By opening day, the property will be mostly flooded with lake water from a channel, thanks to new pumps capable of moving 1.2 million gallons per hour. The main pump, said Schetter, could fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool in 33 minutes. “It’s been an amazing transformation,” said Denis Franklin, a supervisor in the Metroparks natural resources department who has overseen the project from the start. “It’s hard to imagine just 18 months ago this was a farm field.” With more than six miles of hiking trails and another six miles of permanent, deep-water channel for fishing and kayaking through nearly 600 acres of marsh, the park will provide new recreational outlets while creating habitat for migrating birds and spawning fish. Placing a park near the lakeshore has

been a priority for Metroparks Toledo for years. Providing additional parkland is a strategic initiative begun in 2002 when nearly two-thirds of Lucas County electors voted in favor of a property tax levy to acquire additional parkland for the future. “Since that time, we have added 4,500 acres, from the globally significant Oak Openings Region on the west side of the county, to this property near our eastern border,” said Scott J. Savage, president of the Board of Park Commissioners, governing body of Metroparks Toledo. “Without this property, we could not make good on another promise: to have a Metropark within five miles of every resident of Lucas County. “With so little of the original Lake Erie wetlands remaining,” Savage continued, “being able to restore 1,000 acres so close to the shore is a rare opportunity.”

B-C-S Schools

Main Library to close

Levy forum set for public on March 22 By Larry Limpf News Editor The second public meeting in the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District to discuss levies on the May ballot is scheduled for March 22 at 5:30 p.m. at the Oak Harbor High School auditorium. Superintendent Guy Parmigian and Cajon Keeton, district treasurer, will host the meetings. B-C-S voters will decide two operating levies on the ballot: a 1 percent income tax on earned income and a 3.89-mill property tax. Both issues would be in effect for five years if passed. Parmigian said the income tax is collected through employer withholding and is based on wages, and self-employment earnings, including partnerships. Unearned income sources such as interest, dividends, capital gains, pensions, lottery winnings, rental income and in-

SKYWARN class set The annual SKYWARN Severe Weather Spotter’s Class for Wood County will be held Tuesday, March 20 at 6 p.m. on the campus of Bowling Green State University, Olscamp Hall, Room #111. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. Attendees should use Parking Lot N on Ridge Street off of Mercer Road. The class, presented by the National Weather Service Cleveland office, will give participants an overview of how severe weather develops and what to look for when severe weather occurs. Participants will have the opportunity to become official weather spotters for the National Weather Service. The class is recommended for all first responders; however, it is also open to the general public whether they want to be an official weather spotter or would just like to know more about severe weather. Admission is free. There is no age restriction. For more info, contact the Wood County EMA office at 419-354-9269 or email

come earned by estates are exempt from the tax. Estimates by the Ohio Department of Taxation project the income tax would generate about $1.98 million annually, Parmigian said. The property tax would generate about $1.4 million annually, he said, and cost the owner of property with a valuation of $100,000 about $136 a year. The school district is facing what the school board and administration are calling an “unprecedented” loss of $6 million a year from fiscal years 2017 to 2022. The district is taking a major hit, Parmigian said, from the recent property devaluation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station – an annual loss of about $4.6 million. Compounding that loss is the drop of about $300,000 a year from the state phasing out payments to reimburse districts for lowering public utility tangible personal property taxes. The phase-out started in 2015 and continues through 2030, he said, adding

B-C-S voters last approved a new levy in 2000. Parmigian said several residents he’s talked to are open to supporting a school income tax. He estimated about 40 residents attended the first meeting on Feb. 26 “Outside of the meeting, a lot of the farmers I have talked to like the idea of paying an income tax versus a property tax,” he said. While school officials contend with the loss of property taxes from the DavisBesse plant, Ottawa County officials are trying to fend off its possible closure. FirstEnergy is conducting a review of its operations and is considering getting out of electrical generation to focus on transmission, a spokesman said. The review is expected to be complete by this summer. The company also operates the Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Perry, Ohio and the Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station in Pennsylvania.

Toledo-Lucas County Main Library welcomes more than a half million people through its doors each year and has established itself as the community anchor of a downtown Toledo enjoying not only revitalization, but a renaissance. As an institution that evolves and changes to fit the needs of the community, Main Library will launch an ambitious renovation in September that will transform key areas including the first floor, the Children’s Library and the Promenade (entry off the parking garage). Key focuses of the project include: • Updating and increasing technology resources for customers; • Expanding multi-function and meeting room spaces; • Relocating café, gallery and gift shop for a better customer experience; • Creating innovative spaces that drive cultural, educational and economic development In order to accomplish the renovation in the quickest, most cost-effective, and safest manner possible, the Main Library will close to the public for the duration of the project. Plans call for the library to close to the public for renovations directly after Labor Day for 10-12 months. There will not be any public programming or services offered to customers at Main Library. TLCPL will continue to serve the downtown community at six central city locations and 19 countywide locations. Passport services will be available at Sylvania and a central city branch location to be determined. Main Library public service staff will relocate to different branches and placements. There will not be any layoffs associated with this renovation Non-public service staff will remain in the Main Library. For more details, visit

Capital bill includes funding By Larry Limpf News Editor

The state capital appropriations bill that passed last week in the Ohio House of Representatives will include funding for programs designed to help clean Lake Erie, State Senator Randy Gardner and Representative Steve Arndt said. House Bill 529 passed Wednesday in the House by a vote of 92-3 and now goes before the Senate Finance Committee. In addition to funding for historic preservation, tourism job development, lowering infant mortality and opiate addiction, school district renovations and other projects, two other provisions in the bill will benefit efforts to improve water quality, the legislators said. The Clean Ohio Fund was allocated $100 million and the Healthy Lake Erie Initiative is to receive $10 million. Sen. Gardner first sponsored the initiative four years ago to reduce the disposal of dredged materials in Lake Erie. According to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, harbors along Ohio’s north shore must be dredged to keep the shipping channels open and about 1.5 million tons of material are dredged annually. Historically, much of the dredged material was dumped in the open waters of Lake Erie but a bill signed last year by Gov. John Kasich requires the state to set rules for re-using dredged sediment other than dumping it in waters of the lake’s western basin. The dumping ban will go into effect by July 1, 2020. Sen. Gardner said he expects the Toledo harbor to receive some of the $10 million. “The initiative is mainly designed for federal navigational harbors. There are seven of them and Toledo is one of them so I believe Toledo will be in line for some additional support. The City of Huron (Erie County) also has some dredging issues and they would be in line for it as well,” he said. “The federal harbors are a priority because we need support from

Randy Gardner

the Army Corps of Engineers to do these projects. They are primarily in charge of dredging issues so we are collaborating with the corps.” Sen. Gardner said he still supports putting a state bond issue before voters to fund projects to improve water quality. He floated the idea several years ago but found little support from Gov. Kasich. “It would be for $1 billion over a 10year period for an Ohio Clean Water Bond Issue,” he said. “We’re still working with several groups and have gotten support but haven’t actually put it on the ballot yet. The governor isn’t convinced a bond issue is the way to go. I am. There is plenty of work to do; not only for Lake Erie quality but helping communities with water treatment plants, wastewater support and to help agriculture be part of the solution.” Rep. Arndt said the $100 million in appropriations for the Clean Ohio Program, includes $75 million for the Public Works Commission’s Green Space Conservation Program and $12.5 million each for the Department of Natural Resources’ Clean Ohio Trails Program and the Department of Agriculture’s Easement Purchase Program. Gardner said he expects the bill to get a floor vote in the senate this week.

Hayes Meet-and-greet set Meet the duo who put together the special exhibit “Bhutanese-Nepali Neighbors: Photographs by Tariq Tarey” during a special event at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums in Fremont. The special exhibit showcases 30 photographs of members of the Bhutanese-Nepali community, one of the largest current-day refugee groups in Ohio. Each photograph was taken by award-winning photographer Tariq Tarey and is accompanied by a narrative written by Doug Rutledge, which details each individual’s history. The photographs emphasize the historic sequence of the BhutaneseNepali refugee experience; from living and working in Bhutan, to being forced to leave, the experience of living in refugee camps in Nepal, to resettlement in Columbus, finding jobs, buying homes and finally becoming American citizens. During the event, Tarey and Rutledge will give a 15-minute presentation about their work in the museum auditorium. Then they will go into the special exhibit and be available to answer visitors’ questions. Bhutanese-Nepali refreshments, including a bread, called naan, and sweets, will be served. Admission for members is free. Admission for non-member adults is $5 - a discount of $2.50 - and includes access to tour the entire museum. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling Jacque Baker at 419-332-2081, ext. 238. The reservation deadline is 5 p.m. March 15.

Sheep, cattle ranch finds Olympic glory in South Korea Not too long ago I was with some friends at a local eatery watching the television intently. The featured sport was curling. I do not claim to know much about the sport of curling, but here’s the gist. Players slide 44-pound, polished stones with flat bottoms on ice toward a target area (sort of like winter shuffle board). Each team has eight stones and they try to get the stones positioned closest to the center. The stone is pushed down the ice by a curler and then sweepers vigorously sweep the ice with brooms to influence the path of the stone with hopes of bonking their opponents stones out of scoring position, while putting their own closest to the center. The place I was eating was very small and pretty much everyone present ended up watching curling very intently. I must say it was the most thought I’d ever given to curling, but that may change soon as it is time once again for the Winter Olympics and curling is, of course, among the many events. While curling may not be at the top of my viewing priority list for the 2018 Winter Olympics, I certainly watched some because I really enjoy all things Olympic (even, on occasion, the figure skating, but they show “waaaay” too much of that in my opinion). I love the snowboarding, ski jumping, speed skating and downhill skiing. I even took note of the uniforms this year being worn by the U.S. athletes in the opening and closing ceremonies because

Enforce current laws To the editor: We don’t need new gun action, we need to enforce current laws. We should have better security at schools similar to courts and airports. Gun- free zones are a magnet for attackers. The government and its policies were big failures in this last school shooting in Parkland, Florida. This has nothing to do with the NRA or the 2nd Amendment. If these anti-gun fanatics get their way, what other parts of the constitution will be destroyed next? Rufus Wallace Millbury

they will be showcasing a unique partnership for U.S. agriculture. The Team USA uniforms were made with homegrown materials including wool direct from Imperial Stock Ranch, a 145-year-old family-owned sheep and cattle ranch in Oregon’s high desert. The ranch provided wool used for making the hats, sweaters, and other pieces in the opening and closing ceremony uniforms. As the price of wool declined in recent decades, Imperial Stock Ranch began to seek out ways to add value to its products. “Imperial Stock Ranch has been raising sheep, cattle, grains and hay since 1871. In 1999, we shifted from selling commodity wool and began a value-added business taking the raw wool to product and selling the wool products — one of which was yarn. That effort grew into multiple markets,” said Jeanne Carver, with Imperial Stock Ranch. “About 13 years later, we received a call from Ralph Lauren when they were conducting research for a Made in America program. That call led to a relationship between Ralph Lauren and Imperial Stock Ranch, and ultimately, Imperial Stock Ranch provided the wool yarns for the Opening Ceremony sweater for Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.” That relationship continued leading up to the 2018 Winter Olympics that started Feb. 9 in PyeongChang, South Korea. “The Imperial Stock Ranch American Merino yarn program is used in the Opening Ceremony sweater and hat, and the Closing Ceremony sweater, hat and mittens for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter

Games in PyeongChang,” Carver said. “We are humble yet proud to make a small contribution to the Team USA Collection.” The high quality end products they sell start with a focus on quality production on the ranch. “We have a long history of sheep and wool production. This is our 147th

year. It begins with genetics, and our selection characteristics. Our sheep live on native grass lands in a rotational grazing management program, which is a very clean life and requires little to no inputs,” Carver said. “We ensure clean facilities prior to shearing, and then skirt and class the wool at shearing. We do not use paint on the wool and are very preventive with regard to any contamination. Having direct relationships with customers is a strong motivation for all our ranch crew to take extra care in guarding the quality and care of the wool clip.” The wool for the Olympic uniforms was spun into yarn by National Spinning Co., Inc., an employee-owned manufacturer and distributor based in North Carolina. From there the process continues with the help of numerous other U.S. businesses partnering with Ralph Lauren to produce the Olympic apparel designed to keep the athletes warm in the frigid temperatures at the event. Though they would love to, the Carvers did not make the trip to South Korea to see the wool from their ranch on display. They were quite busy at home during the Olympics. “We have just begun lambing, and that keeps everyone on task for the month of February,” Carver said. “This is an important time of year in our operation.” Like the food so often taken for granted in this country, it is easy for the amazing process required for clothing (and the agricultural production of the raw materials used to make it) to be under appreciated. It is great to see a unique partnership between agriculture and the fashion industry showcased on an international stage that only comes around every four years. That makes everything about the Winter Olympics a little more exciting, even curling.

Dyslexia Education Training Center offers their help Dyslexia. If you have heard the term, you may believe it is only an issue with reading. You may believe it is only an issue where people with it see words where the letters are backwards. For those with dyslexia, it is and can be so much more. Dyslexia is a general term for disorders that involve difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols. Dyslexia does not affect general intelligence. People with dyslexia have issues not only reading, but with math, comprehension and many have low self-esteem because of it. If your child or a child you know has dyslexia, he or she may be able to get help from the Dyslexia Education Training Center located at Starr Elementary School in Oregon. According to Pamela Croson M. Ed. CALP, the center’s director, they have been tutoring students since last fall. “The Oregon City Schools have graciously rented us space at Starr since September,” Croson said. “We are providing one-on-one tutoring to 11 students using a research-based multi-sensory language education system. Eight of our stu-

dents attend Oregon Schools; the others are from other northwest Ohio districts.” The center is a continuation of the former Children’s Dyslexia Center of Northwest Ohio, which was a Masonic Charity. When local Masons were no longer able to financially support local centers the national organization closed them. “Ours was one of several closed in Ohio between 2014 and 2016,” Croson ex-

plained. “Our board of directors felt strongly that this was an endeavor that needed to continue and formed a new non-profit.” The Dyslexia Education Training Center, a 501(c)(3) organization, uses the Orton-Gillingham Teacher Training program to help students. The program is a language-based, multi sensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible program. “We teach students how to break words apart into syllables, decode and spell them,” Croson said. “With the program, we have seen an increase in independent reading and in their writing.” The cost for the tutoring is $50 per week for two, 55-minute one-on-one sessions. According to Croson, there are other programs for dyslexics locally, but they may be cost-prohibitive for some. “The actual cost is $120 a student, per week, at some other places,” Croson said. “We promised Oregon Schools that we will only charge those in the district $25 per week for the tutoring. The extra tutoring really does help and we are glad we can provide the program in a more affordable way.” Croson said they currently have four students on a waiting list. The center typically begins seeing more interest in the spring because more children are identified

with dyslexia during state testing. “Many students are not diagnosed until about this time, especially with the Third Grade Reading Guarantee,” she said. “The earlier a child is identified, the earlier we can intervene and help them.” Croson said there are some things to be on the lookout for if you suspect a child may have reading issues. “Some of the things to look for prior to a child going to school include mispronouncing multi-syllable words,” She said. “Many kids have a problem saying spaghetti. That is common. If the issue continues when they are 4 or 5, that could be a problem. Children not being able to recognize rhyming may also be an issue. In school, look for comprehension issues in what was read. The earlier the child is diagnosed, the earlier we can get them help.” Croson said they will be scheduling classes for those who would want to be tutors. Tutors are required to attend 10, 4.5hour sessions, and then complete another 100 supervised tutoring hours at the center. Trainees do not need to have a teaching degree, but are required to have a bachelor’s degree. For more info on the center, or to get information on tutoring or becoming a tutor, call 419-252-0748 or

What do the new blood pressure guidelines mean? New blood pressure guidelines implemented by the American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) put nearly half of the U.S. adult population in the range for high blood pressure. The AHA/ACC recommends patients at 130/80 mm HG—rather than the previous 140/90—be treated with lifestyle changes and perhaps medication to detect, prevent, manage and treat high blood pressure and potential risks that come with it. “The American Heart Association as well as the American College of Cardiology thought the guidelines should be updated

because high blood pressure has significant risk factors for heart disease, cardiovascular (problems) as well as stroke,” said Zakaria Sheikhaden, DO, a cardiologist at ProMedica Physicians Cardiology in Monroe, Michigan. “Studies have shown that if you’re more aggressive with blood pressure, they do better than when you’re more liberal with the number.” Sheikhaden said the guidelines may be a moving number in the coming years, as patients are monitored to see how they fare with the new regulations in place. He also stressed that a one-time reading that may place a person in the high blood pressure range does not mean they should reach for the panic button. The numbers may be higher in a doctor’s office than in the home

due to any stress the subject may have due to visiting a physician or hospital. For this reason, it is important to get readings in two settings. Quitting smoking, reducing stress and decreasing sodium intake are three lifestyle modifications you can make to reduce high blood pressure. When it comes to treatment of high blood pressure, lifestyle modification, such as quitting smoking, reducing stress and decreasing sodium intake, are typically recommended first. However, another potential result of the new guidelines is that more patients would be on medication, said Sheikhaden. “Those medications can have side effects, and they would need to be moni-

tored closely,” he said, noting the potential benefits of patients being more proactive of their health would likely outweigh the drawbacks. “The biggest thing is they need to get to their family doctor,” he said. “Their physician can talk about their risk of heart disease, stroke or diabetes. At that time, we can tailor a plan for them. If they’re low risk, we could always try diet and weight loss. If they’re at high risk, then at that time we’re discussing the combination of medication as well as lifestyle modifications.” For patients under the age of 45, the AHA and ACC predict high blood pressure will triple for men and double for women.

People looking to save money on cosmetic treatment may end up getting more than they bargained for if they receive care from someone who is not qualified to provide it. “You wouldn’t want to get surgery from someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing, and the same applies to cosmetic treatments,” says board-certified dermatologist Anne Chapas, MD, FAAD, the founder and medical director of a private practice in New York. “As with any medical procedure, the results of these treatments will depend on the skill of the person who performs them.” According to Dr. Chapas, dermatologists are seeing more and more patients come to their offices experiencing complications from cosmetic procedures performed by unqualified providers. Some of the most common complications include bruising, changes in skin pigmentation, burns, infection, scars, swelling, and “frozen” facial expressions, she says, and severe cases may involve the breakdown of the skin or even disfigurement. A board-certified dermatologist can treat these complications, Dr. Chapas says, so patients who experience any issues after a cosmetic treatment should see a dermatologist as soon as possible. To avoid experiencing these complications in the first place, she says, patients should seek cosmetic treatment from a qualified doctor like a board-certified dermatologist. “To perform effective cosmetic procedures, you need to understand the biology of the skin,” Dr. Chapas says. “Boardcertified dermatologists spend many years of education and training developing expertise in this area, and we build on that knowledge base throughout our years in practice.” Because unqualified providers may use misleading advertising and language

to claim that they offer dermatologic care, finding someone who is truly qualified to perform cosmetic procedures can be a confusing process, Dr. Chapas says. To ensure that they’re receiving care from a board-certified dermatologist, the public can look for “FAAD” after the doctor’s name; this indicates the doctor is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and all AAD fellows are board-certified. Patients also can ensure that they’re seeing a board-certified dermatologist by asking to see the doctor’s credentials and looking for certification from the American Board of Dermatology or the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology. Dr. Chapas also recommends asking doctors the following questions before a cosmetic procedure: • Who is going to perform the procedure? How many of these procedures has the physician performed? The procedure should be one that the doctor performs regularly. • What results can be expected? How long is the recuperation period? Are before-and-after photos available? • What are the risks? What type of anesthesia will the physician use? Do the benefits of the cosmetic procedure outweigh the risks? Will the doctor be available if the patient experiences complications? • Where is the procedure being performed? The procedure should be performed in a medical center or doctor’s office, not a nonmedical spa, shopping mall or private party. “Board-certified dermatologists provide effective cosmetic treatments every day, so you’ll be in the best of hands when you receive a cosmetic procedure in a dermatologist’s office,” Dr. Chapas says. “And if you do experience any complications, a board-certified dermatologist has the expertise to help.”

Helping children with handling disappointment From the American Counseling Association Disappointment comes to everyone. As adults we, hopefully, have learned that when people or activities may sometimes let us down, we can keep such things in perspective and find ways to overcome our dashed hopes. But for children, disappointment can come in numerous forms. Even a seemingly minor hurt can often seem like such a complete disaster that the child truly has a difficult time accepting and dealing with it. And, in many cases, such as when a beloved pet dies or a close friend moves away, the hurt can be very real and deep and won’t disappear easily. While responding to childhood disappointments can seem difficult, there are solid reasons to do it in a good way. We can make our child feel less sad, avoid more serious emotional issues, and, when we respond well, we help open communication that can strengthen the child - parent relationship. How do you begin to respond to a child’s disappointment? Listening is step one. Don’t minimize or discount the story your child has to tell, even if it seems trivial to you. It’s very real to your child, and a response such as, “That’s no big deal,” or, “You’ll forget about it by tomorrow,” only serves to convince your child that you don’t really understand or even care. You also don’t want to hurry in with a pleasant experience or reward to make the hurt go away. This can establish flawed


Counseling Corner patterns that carry over into adulthood and can present very real future problems. Instead, talk “with” your child, rather than “to” him or her. Don’t begin an interrogation when something seems wrong but instead tell him or her in a gentle way that you’ve noticed they’re unhappy and encourage them to tell you what has happened. Don’t be judgmental about what is being reported but instead offer sympathy and understanding. Let your child know you empathize because you’ve suffered your own disappointments. Don’t try to top your child’s story, but instead listen and sympathize. Just being able to share can do much to minimize the hurt. In some cases, being a good listener may not be enough. If you notice a persistent change in behavior over time, and if your child is refusing to talk about what’s wrong, it may be appropriate to seek help from a trained professional counselor. Your child’s school counselor is always a good place to start. “Counseling Corner” is provided by the American Counseling Association.

ing, the former Huntington Bank headquarters, is in great shape with only cosmetic updates necessary.” Serving the community for more than 40 years, Zepf Center was initially established to serve the needs of residents of Lucas County returning to the community after psychiatric hospitalization. Since that time, the organization has grown to serve more than 10,000 people annually by providing a broad range of services including mental health and addiction treatment, integrated care, vocational services, supportive living and recovery housing services, and wellness and prevention services to individuals all across the Northwest Ohio region through the efforts of nearly 700 staff members.

Health Department awarded tobacco cessation grant The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department (TLCHD) has been awarded the Community Cessation Initiative (CCI) grant from the Ohio Department of Health. The focus of the grant is to decrease tobacco use county-wide and increase access and knowledge of cessation services available. The overall objective is to create a referral network for tobacco cessation services in Lucas County, while helping potential patients reach the appropriate services. Through this referral network, TLCHD will be able to provide appropriate follow-up and relapse management after treatment is complete, ensuring the best possible attempt to quit smoking. As part of this initiative, TLCHD is working to identify and bridge the gaps regarding current cessation services offered in Lucas County. The three disparate populations identified include pregnant women, African Americans, and Latinos residing in low socioeconomic communities. The Health Department is seeking as many community partners as possible who would be interested in contributing their services and/or referrals to the CCI Lucas County network. These community partnerships may include provider partnerships, referral partnerships, or both. For more information, contact the CCI Lucas County Tobacco Line at 419-2134558.

Eyes at work

No link between hormonal birth control and depression

Prevent Blindness has declared March as Workplace Eye Wellness Month to provide employers and employees with free information on the best ways to keep vision healthy on the job. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each day, about 2,000 U.S. workers sustain a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment. Common causes for eye injuries in the workplace are: • Flying objects (bits of metal, glass) • Tools • Particles • Chemicals • Harmful radiation • Any combination of these or other hazards The proper eye protection depends on the hazards in the workplace. For those working in areas with particles, flying objects, or dust, employees must at least wear safety glasses with side protection (side shields). With chemicals, appropriate goggles should always be worn. If working near hazardous radiation (welding, lasers, or fiber optics), special-purpose safety glasses, goggles, face shields, or helmets designed for that task should be worn. Additional recommendations may be found at the Prevent Blindness website at: The Vision Council reports that more than 87 percent of individuals ages 18-39, more than 82 percent of individuals ages 40-59, and 76 percent of individuals ages 60 and up use digital devices for more than two hours per day. To find out more about workplace eye health topics, please contact Prevent Blindness, Ohio Affiliate at (800) 301-2020 or visit www.pbohio. org.

Women face several options when it comes to birth control, so potential side effects often factor into their decision. Depression is a common concern for many women, but a new study by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is putting patients at ease. It found there’s no evidence to support a link between hormonal birth control and depression. “Depression is a concern for a lot of women when they’re starting hormonal contraception, particularly when they’re using specific types that have progesterone,” said Dr. Brett Worly, lead author of the study and OB/GYN at Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. “Based on our findings, this side effect shouldn’t be a concern for most women, and they should feel comfortable knowing they’re making a safe choice.” Worly and his team reviewed thousands of studies on the mental health effects of contraceptives. They included data tied to various contraception methods, including injections, implants and pills. Similarly, researchers reviewed studies examining the effects of hormonal birth control on postpartum women, adolescents and women with a history of depression, all with the same conclusion: there is insufficient evidence to prove a link between birth control and depression. “Adolescents and pregnant moms will sometimes have a higher risk of depression, not necessarily because of the medicine they’re taking, but because they have that risk to start with,” said Worly. “For those patients, it’s important that they have a good relationship with their healthcare provider so they can get the appropriate screening done – regardless of the medications they’re on.” Worly said patient concerns are valid, and he wants women to continue having open and honest discussions with their doctor about which options work for them. “We live in a media-savvy age where if one or a few people have severe side effects, all of a sudden, that gets amplified to every single person,” he said. “The biggest

Many women worry about the potential side effects of hormonal birth control, including depression. (Submitted photo) misconception is that birth control leads to depression. For most patients that’s just not the case.” Most women have tried at least one method of contraception in their lives, with nearly 37 million women in the United States currently using birth control. Sixtyseven percent of current users have opted for a non-permanent hormonal method such as an oral pill, but among those, 30

percent have discontinued their use due to dissatisfaction with potential side effects. Many women worry about the potential side effects of hormonal contraceptives, including depression. However, researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center conducted a comprehensive review of current research and found there is not sufficient evidence to link birth control and depression.

Ottawa County

Grant supports Light House The opioid crisis has been very much in the news lately. An important beacon of hope in Ottawa County is Light House Sober Living (LHSL), a safe and secure home of hope, healing and life for persons in recovery. “Light House works hard with residents as well as individuals in our community to create an alternative peer group where residents can spend time together, share in recovery efforts, and have safe and healthy fun,” said LHSL Executive Director, Kenn Bower, Jr. The Ottawa County Community Foundation awarded a grant to Light House Sober Living to provide activities such as concerts, bowling nights, races, sporting events and SOBER parties to support the residents as they rebuild their lives. “We feel it is important for people to know there is a fun, rewarding life available after they

decide to enter into recovery and no longer use (drugs/alcohol),” said Bower. A portion of the grant money was used for entry fees so the men could participate in the Back the Blue 5K race which supported the local fraternal order of police. To learn about LHSL, call Bower at 419-967-5676. The Ottawa County Community Foundation is a public charitable organization created in 1999 by the citizens of the community to improve the quality of life for those who live and work in the Ottawa County area. Grants to local non-profit organizations like Light House Sober Living is one example of how the Foundation supports the community and continues its mission – “Doing Good. Forever.” To learn more about the foundation or how to start a named fund or scholarship, visit

A humble and traditional culinary creation A number of things are readily associated with Irish culture, especially in proximity to St. Patrick’s Day. A particular shade of green, referred to as “Kelly green,” corned beef, potatoes, parades – even enjoying a pint at the pub. One of the cherished traditions of St. Patrick’s Day, and even everyday Irish cuisine, is whipping up a family recipe for Irish soda bread. True Irish soda bread continues today to be an international favorite. While it is enjoyed across Ireland, it’s also widely enjoyed wherever Irish immigrants have established roots and elsewhere. Most of the ingredients necessary to prepare Irish soda bread can already be found in many homes. Irish soda bread gets its name not from a sweetened carbonated drink, but by the leavening agent that is used in place of yeast. Baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) is a common component of quick bread cooking. When the baking soda is

Various incarnations of soda bread are enjoyed around the world, including Ireland.

mixed with the flour and a soured milk (butter milk, for example), its chemical qualities produce carbon dioxide gas bubbles that help give soda bread it’s risen, airy texture. In some recipes, live yogurt, or even stout, are used as the liquid to activate the baking soda. While the Irish adapted the science behind baking soda and have come to be associated with soda bread’s origins, the earliest reference to soda ash being used in baking bread is actually credited to the American Indians. Baking soda was not brought to nor discovered in Ireland until the middle of the 19th century. However, it is the Irish who have made soda bread much their own. It tends to be an easy and inexpensive bread to make to feed many and is very versatile. Soda bread in some shape or form is enjoyed by cultures all around the world. From Scotland to Poland to Serbia to Australia, these countries have their own versions of soda bread and their own cooking methods.

Brother-sister duo take top two All-Press cage honors A brother-sister duo have laid claim to the Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Girls Basketball Team’s top two awards, but it should not surprise anyone. Eastwood coach Nick Schmeltz and his younger sister Jamie Schmeltz are Coach of the Year and Player of the Year, and the voting by 10 area coaches and 10 media members was not even close for either. On top of that, for the first time in five years, an Oak Harbor player was not named Player of the Year. For three years, Andrea Cecil, now a 6-foot-1 sophomore playing for NCAA Division I Bowling Green State University, took the award. Last year, Cecil’s protégé, 6-1 sophomore post Logan Harris took the honor after leading her team to the Division II district finals and a 21-4 season. However, Schmeltz won 75 percent of the votes this year to unseat Harris and prevent her from repeating Cecil’s dominance. Schmeltz, a 5-10 sophomore guard, averaged 21.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 3.7 steals to lead Eastwood to a 19-6 season, a sectional title and the program’s first league title in 11 years. Seven teammates averaged at least one assist per game, a reflection on her. One of them, 5-6 junior guard Hannah Limes, is also first team All-Press after averaging 7.9 points, four rebounds, 1.8 assists and 2.8 steals. “Jamie’s play helped elevate those around her as she was able to successfully help senior Kelley Turk, senior Morgan Rost, junior Hannah Owens, and sophomore Hannah Limes have career years,” her brother and coach, Nick, said. “Jamie was a key piece in our team’s success this year,” Nick continued. “She was not only a phenomenal scorer, but she also led our team in assists, steals, and deflections. Along those lines, Jamie was our point guard — so not only was she able to score, but she would also get us into our offense and get the ball where it needed to go. She had a positive assist/turnover ratio.” Jamie set a single-game school record scoring 43 points, and she finished with 531 points on the season, which is second most all-time behind the program’s all-time leading scorer Teri Poggemeyer. She had set a standard even though she was dealing with health issues, which often showed, like in a three-overtime NBC win over Otsego that secured the Northern Buckeye Conference co-championship with Elmwood. “A couple weeks into the regular season Jamie was having trouble breathing and catching her breath,” Nick said. “This caused her to have to come out frequently in games for quick breaks. “In mid-December she was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma. The inhaler helped a little bit, but she was still not feeling completely right. In January, after multiple tests, she was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. It is a condition in which blood lacks adequate healthy blood cells. Its side effects are extreme weakness and fatigue. She played the whole year with this and never complained once, nor ever missed any practice time.” Nick says Jamie will take a couple weeks of basketball off as she transitions into track. Her AAU team will start playing at the end of March and conclude in June and July with a few national tournaments

on tap. Nick says his team is already working on a plan for next year — a plan that includes defending their NBC championship and perhaps advancing a little further into the tournament. “As for our team, we will begin spring basketball workouts in mid-April. A lot of our basketball players participate in a spring sport, so for a lot of them they will be focused on their track or softball seasons,” Nick said. “The month of June is a heavy basketball month for us as we use many of our available coaching days in that span. We will participate in a couple shootouts and attend Findlay’s Team Camp. We also will be taking part in one of the toughest oneday shootouts in the state of Ohio which is the OGBR Crystal Ball event. Twenty-four

of the top teams across the state of Ohio will be participating,” Nick continues. “With much of our team coming back and the addition of a talented eighth grade class coming in, our expectations as a program will be high. We have always had a conference title as a goal, and that will stay the same. Hopefully we can advance back to the district tournament and make it to the district finals. If our girls continue to put in the time and effort in the off-season our program should continue to grow and evolve.” Jamie was joined on the All-Press first team by Harris (19.6 pts., 8.8 reb., 1.7 asst.), who received just under 25 percent of the POY vote. Jamie Schmeltz and Harris took every POY vote except one, which went to Clay 5-11 senior forward Elizabeth Vincent (11 pts., 7 reb., 2.7 blocks). Two Lake players, 5-8 junior guard Mya Staczek and 6’0 junior forward Lexi Robinson round out the first team. Robinson missed part of the season because of an injury, which kept the Flyers from getting on track like they did last year, but she averaged 12.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.1 steals. Staczek averaged 13.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and three steals. Nick Schmeltz took just under half of the COY votes, second place went to Oak Harbor coach Tom Kontak and third to Lake coach Joe Nowak. Also receiving one vote each were Kyle Clair (Woodmore), Mike DeStazio (Genoa) and Toby Ledesma (Rossford).

Mahala’leel ‘Little’ Anderson plays much bigger role By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Mahala’leel Anderson is a starting forward on the fifth-ranked Division III boys basketball team in Ohio. You may know him as Little, but he doesn’t play that way for coach Jamie Kachmarik’s Cardinal Stritch Cardinals. Anderson said his mother, Lori, started call him Little “as soon as I was born.” “Everyone calls me Little,” Anderson said, “even my teachers.” Some Toledo Area Athletic Conference rivals probably wish they’d never met him. “He’s extremely athletic and he plays hard,” Kachmarik said of the 6-foot-3 junior. “He’s probably one of the best slashers in the area. He’s improved his outside shooting, but he’s so quick with his first step and he’s so long, people have a hard time keeping him out of the paint. He’s had two games of over 20 points, so he can give you big (scoring) games on any given night.” Anderson was averaging 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds a game through 23 games. Joey Holifield led the team in scoring at 16.5 points per game, followed by Jordan Burton at 14.4. Anderson, a second-team All-TAAC and honorable mention AllDistrict 7 performer as a sophomore and junior, was also tied with Burton for the team lead in steals with 43. Anderson scored nine points and added seven rebounds on Thursday in the Cardinals’ thrilling 59-53 win over ninthranked Genoa in a D-III district semifinal at Central Catholic. Stritch (23-1) advanced to Saturday’s title game against 11th-ranked Archbold. The Cardinals won the first boys basketball league championship in school history this season, going 14-0 in the TAAC. Kachmarik said he likes to give his players free reign on the court, and other intangibles come into play when it comes to Stritch’s success. “It’s like we’re all one family,” Anderson said. “We all stick together, on and off the court. We’re all tight, like a brotherhood. I feel like I’ve had a good

Little Anderson (14). (Press photo by Doug Karns/ season. I’ve been helpful to my team with rebounding and scoring, but that’s not just my (entire) game. I try to focus on rebounding and defending. I put work into it. I take it just as serious as offense, but I still have work to do.” Kachmarik said that while he does ask Anderson to look to score, the Cardinals

have several options on offense. He said he wants his players to “get out and go.” “I have kids now that have a knowledge and IQ of basketball, and they can make plays,” Kachmarik said. “I’m a better coach sometimes when I step out of their way.” Stritch’s arsenal was on full dis-

play on March 2 at Bowsher, when the Cardinals handed TAAC rival Gibsonburg a 66-23 loss in the sectional title game. It was Stritch’s first game in seven days, and Anderson contributed 16 points, eight rebounds and three steals in the win over the Golden Bears. “Our guys were ready to play,” Kachmarik said. “They shocked me a little bit how they came out so eager to play. We didn’t play for a while. My mentality is, I always talk about the postseason. I have that college mentality, that the most important month is March.” Anderson said he and his teammates were anxious to play after having a week off, and they also wanted to make a statement. “We got hungry again and we were focused,” he said. “We knew that would be our third time playing (Gibsonburg), and it’s hard to beat a team three times in a year. The way we go in practices, that translates to the game, to always play hard. We push each other to go harder and rise to the competition. “Our goal is just to continue to get better and play harder and defend better. I think we can go really far this year. That’s going to take leadership on and off the court and playing together, not playing individual ball.” Anderson said he plans to continue playing basketball in college while studying architecture. Anderson, who has a 3.4 GPA, recently became a member of the National Honor Society. “That means a lot to me,” he said. “I looked at it like an accomplishment. I wanted to strive for that my junior year and I ended up getting it. It made my mom proud, too, and that was a good thing.” Kachmarik said the fact that Stritch’s teachers nominated Anderson for the NHS “tells you what the faculty thinks of him.” “He’s a tremendous kid,” Kachmarik said. “There’s not a nicer kid around. He’s very active in school and all the teachers like him. He works a lot. He and Jordan do a mentoring program with the kindergarten class. He’s a super kid and he has a bright future, especially with where his academics are. The sky’s the limit with him.”

Down the stretch, Bears showed what they could do By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Ultimately, Gibsonburg’s boys basketball season did not end well, but the Golden Bears played well down the stretch during the regular season. Coach Brent Liskai’s young squad went 6-4 over its final 10 games, then posted a mild upset win over Lake, 69-60, in the first round of the Division III sectional tournament. The Bears finished 9-15 and 5-9 in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference. Gibsonburg is joining the Sandusky River League next season. “We were picked to finish fifth (in the TAAC) and we finished fifth,” Liskai said. “I have tremendous respect for all the (TAAC) coaches. I feel its the best small-school league around, basketball-wise. Year in and year out, it’s rock solid and it’s been a good conference for us.” League champion Cardinal Stritch, the state’s fifth-ranked D-III team, ended the Bears’ season with a 69-23 victory on March 2. “We played pretty well as we grew up,” Liskai said. “We were a fairly young team playing a bunch of young guys. As we grew up and got a little more consistent, our team improved. These are all really good students, and they’re nice kids. You couldn’t ask for more than that. Everybody on the varsity roster is a 3.7 (GPA) or above. We stuck together and competed each night. I have nothing bad to say about this group.” The Bears’ starting lineup consisted of two seniors, one junior, one sophomore and a freshman. Junior wing Addison Weaver led Gibsonburg in scoring, averaging 17.7 points a game, and earned first-team allconference and all-district honors. Weaver scored 30-plus points four times this season. “He’s a really explosive leaper and a tough match-up,” Liskai said. “He’s a lefty and there were nights when he got it going. He scored 30 against Toledo Christian, he scored 38 a couple times and 35 another night. He grew a lot over the season and we look forward to a lot more growth for his senior season. I look for him to develop even more.” Senior wing Josh Ernsthausen averaged 14.9 points and earned second-team All-TAAC honors. “Josh had to handle the ball a lot for us, which he hasn’t had to do over the years,” Liskai said. “We didn’t have true point guard, so we ran it by committee. Josh did a good job. He had a couple of explosive games, with 32 points against Lake and 31 against Fremont St. Joe. He scored over 700 points in his career and he did a lot of good things this year.” Nate Kissel, a senior post, earned honorable mention all-conference honors after

averaging four points and a team-best 7.7 rebounds a game. “Nate did a lot of the dirty work inside,” Liskai said. “He had a high game of 21 rebounds against Maumee Valley, and he takes up space.” Gibsonburg’s other starters were sophomore forward Jake Foster and freshman guard Mitch Tille. Foster averaged 5.9 points per game and scored 16 against Elmwood and 15 against Stritch. “He had some ups and downs,” Liskai said, “but we think he’ll be able to score in the future. And, he’s a real nice athlete. Mitch did some real good things. Offensively, he has a big upside. He averaged 4.2 points a game, and as he continues to mature, he’s going to be a nice player down the road.” Sophomore guards Theo Hernandez and Austin Biddle were the first two players off the bench and were asked to harass opponents defensively. Senior post Joe Adkins and freshman Mason Tille also saw time on the court. “We have some talent coming,” Liskai said. “I had to move some kids up (to varsity) because our junior and senior classes weren’t real deep. We had three seniors and four juniors, but only one junior on the varsity. That was a bad mix in our league this year.”

Nagle named ECHL goaltender of the month For the second time this season, Toledo Walleye goaltender Pat Nagle has been selected as the Warrior Hockey ECHL Goalie of the Month. He also took home the honor for the month of November. Nagle appeared in eight games for the Walleye in the month of February going a perfect 8-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage. The Bloomfield, Michigan native also posted a perfect game with a shutout 1-0 of the Wichita Thunder on February 11. That night was his second shutout of the season in a 28 save effort. He allowed two goals or less in six of his eight appearances for the month and has set a new Toledo Walleye record with nine consecutive victories dating back to January 27 vs. Brampton. The 30-year-old currently leads all ECHL goaltenders with 27 wins (27-4-2 record) while he ranks seventh with a 2.29 GAA to go along with a .921 save percentage (sixth in the league). Nagle just picked up his 150th ECHL win with a 4-3 win in Indy and in his ECHL career he has appeared in 258 games with a record of 15063-27, 12 shutouts, 2.57 GAA and .913 SVP. Prior to turning professional he spent four years at Ferris State with a 45-42-11 record with a 2.32 GAA and .916 SVP.

Smith helped jump start Rocket’s program By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer As Tate Smith goes, so go the Oak Harbor Rockets. The senior post has been an integral part of the rebuilding process for Oak Harbor, which has gone from four to eight to 19 wins in each of the last three seasons. The 6-foot-5 center’s scoring, rebounding and work on the defensive end have been instrumental in getting the Rockets to this point, one that has seen them win their first sectional title in nearly 20 years while lifting itself near the top of the Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division. Oak Harbor’s impressive season came to an end in the Division III district semifinals with a 56-49 loss to Carey, but it wasn’t without its list of accomplishments. Smith was one of a bevy of players who stood out at different times. The Rockets start Jac Alexander, Clay Schulte and Alex Gezo in the backcourt with Smith and Aric McAtee, a jack-of-all-trades, in the frontcourt. A bench features Jake Lewis, Clark Rutledge, Hunter Wilkins, Connor Hoy and Hunter Lacer – all have provided valuable production throughout the season. The unit provided balanced scoring as Alexander (13.3 pts.), Smith (12.6), Gezo (10.4) and Schulte (8.8) all finished in the top 20 in scoring in the Bay Division. McAtee was second in the division in rebounding, averaging 7.3, and Smith averaged 6.1. “To get to 19 wins and a sectional championship is an accomplishment. We had a lot of kids receive accolades. It’s something to build on,” said Oak Harbor coach Eric Sweet. “This group of seniors won four games as sophomores and finished with 19 wins as seniors.” Oak Harbor’s 19 victories are the most since the 1983 club advanced to the state championship game. “It’s been such a joy. We’ve bonded together as a team, the starting five have done really well together, and the (role players) have bonded well with us,” said Smith. “I love playing with these guys. You can al-

Oak Harbor seniors Tate Smith (35) and senior Aric McAtee (23) cause disruption in Genoa's offense. (Press photo by Russ Lytle/ Facebook. com/ RussLytle/RHP) ways count on one of the guys for something.” Coach Sweet has high praise for Smith. “As a sophomore, he averaged eight points and five rebounds. Last year, he averaged 13 points and six rebounds,” said Sweet. “He was a pleasant surprise as a sophomore. He came in and was very impressive. He earned his minutes. He’s played very physical and been big for us. He’s going to be hard to replace. He’s been a cornerstone for us for three years.” Smith, who excelled as the kicker for the Rocket’s football team this year, signed his letter of intent to continue his football career at Bluffton University. “I’m excited to go there and playing. I love playing the sport and kicking the football,” he said. “I started as a junior and I learned on my own and now I’ll be playing in college.” Save for Oak Harbor’s losses, which came to teams with a combined record of 70-26 (.729), the Rockets answered the call

when faced with a challenge, as evidenced by wins over the likes of Genoa, Edison, Margaretta and Old Fort. The Rockets started the season 4-2 before reeling off seven straight victories and then going 7-2 to finish off the regular season. “I think it’s a tremendous feat to get where they are. It’s been a great team effort. They play well together. It’s been a fun year,” said Sweet. The team’s play attracted larger crowds, which created an intense, tournament-like atmosphere at many of the games. “It’s nice to see everybody coming out to support us,” said Smith. “It’s nice having people come out to the games.” Sweet is pleased that his players have gotten the chance to perform in front of packed gymnasiums. “They put in the time and effort in. I think people are impressed with what they’re watching,” he said. “It’s fun to watch these guys.”

Seree Petersen (Press file photo)

Smith, Petersen reach next level Oak Harbor seniors Tate Smith and Seree Petersen have signed to play collegiate sports next year. Smith signed his national letter of intent to continue his academic and football career at Bluffton University next fall. Smith is a two-year football letter winner for Oak Harbor, making his mark as a place kicker for the Rockets. In the fall, he made 23-of-25 extra point attempts and 6-of7 field goal attempts, including successfully booting a 42-yarder and a school record 44-yarder. He finished third on the team in scoring in 2017. Smith is a 3-year basketball letter winner at Oak Harbor as well. Petersen will continue her academic and soccer career at Ohio Christian University this fall. Behind Petersen, the Rockets claimed their 10th consecutive Sandusky Bay Conference title last fall, finishing 7-0-1 in the SBC’s Bay Division. The Rockets finished the season 11-6-1 as Petersen put up 18 points on seven goals and four assists.

The Gray Wolf infield will be a blend of new and old. In the middle infield, Schmeltz, a freshman, looks to lock down second base. Behlmer may also see time at both the hot corner and second base during her rookie season as well. Lourdes opened the season in Florida, facing Judson and Bellevue on March 4, the first of 12 straight games away from home prior to the March 18 opener at Pacesetter Park.

At the Division II state bowling meet, Eastwood got through the 16-team preliminaries, and then saw its season ended by St. Henry in a state quarterfinal. At the preliminaries, the Eagles, under 12th-year coach Jay Young, finished eighth with a team total of 3,156. That matched the Eagles up with No. 1 seed St. Henry, which scored 3,392. Teams one through eight were St. Henry, St. Paris Graham (3,358), Plain City Jonathan Alder (3,336), Cortland Lakeview (3,326), Mechanicsburg (3,282), Uhrichsville Claymont (3,264), Girard (3,228) and Eastwood. Teams nine to 16 were St. Marys (3,135), Youngstown Liberty (3,134), Carrollton (3,112), Urbana and Newark Licking Valley tied at 3,084, Parma Padua Fransiscan (3,068), Lynchburg-Clay (3,002) and Heath (2,809). In the quarterfinal, St. Henry took first two games 166-159 and 170-156, but Eastwood responded in the third game, winning 227-148 in the best of five series. However, St. Henry won the fourth game 171-147 to advance. St. Henry lost to eventual state champion Mechanicsburg in the state semifinals. “It’s always good to go back to state and then make finals. We actually didn’t bowl real well all day, but that happens,” Eastwood 12th-year coach Jay Young said. “It was a very successful season for the boys — undefeated conference champions, won three tournaments, second at sectionals, won district championship, and then made final cut at state. We got beat in the first round of match play, but I’m very proud of them and glad they had the opportunity to experience the state finals.” Jordan Cook and Alex Bookenberger are the Eagles’ two seniors and have been on the varsity for four years. Cook, who has bowled a 289 game, carried a 211 average heading into the sectional tournament. Bookenberger has bowled a 511 series for two games this season and had a team-best 219 average. Eastwood’s lone junior, Justin Gentry, had a 196 average. The rest of the team includes sophomores Jesse Lopez and Noah Jankowski and freshman Josh Dennis. Jankowski had a 196 average and Lopez and Dennis were averaging 177 and 178, respectively, heading into tournament play. In the individual bowling state cham-

Genoa sends 7, Clay sends 6 to state wrestling meet By Press Staff Writer It was another historic weekend for the Genoa wrestling team as they seized the program’s first district championship at Defiance High School. The Comets out distanced runner-up Delta 196½-126½ in the 53-team Division III field while representing half of the weight classes in the finals. Genoa placed a record nine wrestlers and advanced a program-best seven mat men to the state tournament, toppling the mark of five set in 2014, 2016 and 2017. Five district champions spearheaded the charge for the Comets. Oscar Sanchez, Julian Sanchez, Dustin Morgillo, Dylan D’Emilio and James Limongi captured gold while senior Xavier Beach and junior Noah Koch claimed runner-up honors to advance to Columbus. Genoa state qualifiers are Oscar Sanchez (38-4) at 113 pounds, Julian Sanchez (45-2) at 120, D’Emilio (48-0) at 132, Morgillo (46-5) at 138, Limongi (43-3) at 160, Beach (40-11) at 182 and Koch (468) at 285. However, there was some adversity for Genoa, which may have affected their chances of winning a state title. “It was a heartbreaking semifinal round for the maroon and grey as senior Seth Moore and sophomore Kevin Contos suffered season ending injuries in their ‘goto’ matches and were not able to continue, each being forced to injury default to sixth place finishes,” stated Coach Bob Bergman in an email. At the Division I district meet held at Perrysburg High School, Clay finished fourth out of 37 teams with wrestlers qualifying, and the Eagles sent six to the state meet. Clay scored 111 points to finish behind Lakewood St. Edward (284½), Brecksville (234½) and Elyria (161½). Nick Daly (32-13) placed second at 285 pounds, losing the district championship match to Amherst Steele wrestler Matt Lee (44-1) by a 9-4 decision. Every other state qualifier for Clay finished fourth at the district, including Kyle Maville (28-14) at 120, Mike Daly (34-140 at 126, Garret Anderson (37-10) at 145, Troy Murphy (30-16) at 160, and Jacob Meek (3313) at 182. Oak Harbor sent four wrestlers to the Division III state meet — freshman Tyler Davis (39-11) at 106, junior Cameron Dickman (38-17) at 120, junior Tad Jensen

Inspirational Message of the Week: Spiritual Maturity Just as we grow and develop physically and mentally, we should do so spiritually as well. Children grow and learn in relation to their parents in much the same way that we grow and learn in relation to God. We go from being completely dependent on our parents to being an integral part of our family, helping with chores and supporting each other, and in the process, we should also grow in love and appreciation for our parents and siblings. As children of God we will always remain dependent on God, but we should also mature to the point where we are “pulling our weight” in the spiritual realm. Spiritually mature persons will take the initiative to pray and do good works without having to be

Gibsonburg had three qualify — senior Hugo Villarreal (42-4) at 145, junior Brady Jaso (38-7) at 160 and junior Bradley Mendoza (45-1) at 170. Lake and Eastwood both had one wrestler qualifying — both at 113. For the Flyers, sophomore Antonio Lecki (25-7) made the trip to Columbus, and for the Eagles, freshman Brandon Hahn (46-5) made the cut. Lake coach Tom Jackson said Lecki worked hard to qualify for state. “Antonio has certainly earned his trip to Columbus,” Jackson said. “He has a lot of hours and years logged in wrestling through elementary and middle school. He’s wrestling really well right now, and has been very motivated through the ‘postseason.’ He’s a great student and a super kid. I think he has a great shot to place.” Eastwood coach Joe Wyant also liked Hahn’s chances of placing at state. “Brandon wrestled very well at district,” Wyant said. “His first two matches were very good and his third match was excellent in the semis versus Ray Adams from Edison, winning by a score of 14-3. Adams was a state placer last year at 106. We feel if Brandon wrestles like he did at districts, he could place at state. We are very proud of him and his work ethic.”

persuaded by others. They are also willing and able to accept hard truths about their own failings and will work diligently to improve. The spiritually mature strive to become more like God, and to judge others not by their outward appearances but by their inner attributes. They are painfully aware of their own tendency to judge others more harshly than they judge themselves and consequently will be merciful in their judgement of others. “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” —1 Peter 2:1-3 NIV
