Oregon to improve Navarre-Coy intersection By Kelly J. Kaczala News Editor Oregon council recently approved an agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for funding from the Federal Highway Administration for the engineering design, right of way acquisition and construction of the Navarre Avenue and Coy Road intersection improvements. The city will get a $1.7 million safety grant from the FHA through ODOT for implementing various safety improvements at the intersection. Public Service Director Paul Roman said earlier this month that the schedule for the project includes design in 2019, right of way acquisition in 2020 at the corners of the intersection, and construction in 2021. “We are close to hiring a design firm. We’ll get proposals in the next week or two,” said Roman. The scope of the project includes widening Coy, installing right turn lanes on Coy, median islands on Navarre Avenue and upgrading the traffic signal, according to Roman. “There would also be a median on

I just want to make sure that if we’re doing something, let’s do it so we can build it towards the future.

Supporters of the Lake Erie Bill of Rights ballot initiative that is now being contested in court have started a crowdfunding site to help defray legal costs. Donations may be made at The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund drafted the bill of rights for the lake at the request of Toledoans for Safe Water, which then gathered signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot. Soon after voters approved the initiative, a member of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court for Northern Ohio that challenges the constitutionality of LEBOR, arguing it violates federal constitutional rights, including equal protection, freedom of speech and is unenforceable for its vagueness. Last month, the court issued a preliminary injunction that prevents the city from enforcing LEBOR while the case proceeds. The CELDF is representing backers of the initiative in the lawsuit and Mark Drewes, a director of The Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association whose family farms in Custar, O., is the plaintiff in the suit. LEBOR grants legal rights to the Great Lake and its watershed as an amendment to Toledo’s charter. In its argument for an injunction filed in February, Drewes Family Partnership states LEBOR infringes on standard farming practices. “LEBOR unconstitutionally and unlawfully exposes farmers to massive liability for the use of any fertilizer or chemicals, even when such use comports with best practices, meets scientifically recommended levels, and would otherwise be lawful under state and federal regulation,” the partnership’s motion says. “If LEBOR forces Drewes Farms to halt fertilization, not only will the harvest fail, but also Drewes Farms will be in breach of its leases and production contracts.

Navarre 500 feet east and west of Coy with U-turns. It would be very similar of what we have done between I-280 and Isaac Streets Drive,” said Roman, referring to the Navarre Avenue Safety Improvements project, where various safety and aesthetic improvements along Navarre Avenue between I-280 and Isaac Streets Drive were made a couple of years ago to reduce crashes and improve safety. The city also received grant funding from the FHA though ODOT for that project as well. City Administrator Mike Beazley

said discussions to improve the safety of Navarre Avenue stretch back years. “We started with improvements from I-280 to Isaac Streets Drive a couple of years ago. Then our next goal was this intersection, which had the greatest need from a safety and improvement perspective. But our goal remains the same: To be able to then join the two with a phase three that would connect Isaac Streets Drive where [phase one] ended.” Councilman Terry Reeves asked Roman when the last time the intersection had been improved. “Navarre was widened in 1999 to 2001. Other than what we needed to do to accommodate that widening of Navarre at that intersection, that was it. To say when it was done before that, I’m not too sure – either the 60s or early 70s.” Big project Part of the project includes the replacement of a bridge over Amlosch Ditch. “This is a big project. There’s a lot of design work involved,” said Roman. “I just want to make sure that if we’re doing something, let’s do it so we can build it towards the future,” said Reeves. Continued on page 2

“Depending on the weather, planting season for wheat will likely begin in late March and for the rest of the crops in April - the farm will need to begin fertilizing at that time in order to have a successful harvest. Injunctive and declaratory relief is therefore needed quickly.” Attorneys for the CELDF have challenged the farm partnership’s legal standing in the case. “LEBOR does not say that all pollution is unlawful. Or that all runoff is unlawful. LEBOR says that the Lake Erie Ecosystem has the right ‘to exist, flourish and naturally evolve,’ the people have a right to a ‘clean and healthy Lake Erie and Ecosystem,’ and that what is unlawful is for a corporation to violate these rights,” their motion for dismissal says.

City of Oregon to improve Navarre-Coy intersection Roman said the total cost of the project is $2.3 million. Councilman Steve Hornyak asked Roman how far to the west will the proposed project go on Navarre. “It is very close to Huntington Bank Drive, somewhere in that area to the west. To the east, it will get very close to Athens,” said Roman. Hornyak asked if the traffic flow on Navarre Avenue between the two improvement projects would be restricted. “Once these are both completed, have we in any way inhibited the traffic between the two points on Navarre Avenue? “No,” said Roman. “Coy will open up traffic and will flow much better. But on Navarre, it should have no effect. There will be U-turns at the intersection. But it won’t physically choke or reduce capacity.” Councilman James Seaman said he and other members of council have in the past expressed concerns about congestion on Coy. “Dustin helps. But there could be a lot of congestion going either way on Coy, north and south. So this will provide tremendous relief from that congestion with having the right hand turns for both north and south for Coy. It seems like it would,” said Seaman. “One of my concerns was,” said Councilwoman Sandy Bihn, “is the traffic on Navarre itself at Coy.” “If this doesn’t relieve that, then we get a lot of traffic and other issues. Is this going to help that? I don’t know how many cars you can get down the road that’s still going to be four lanes. It can help with the intersections. Is the volume of traffic on Navarre increasing over time?” “The improvement is going to accommodate the traffic you have now,” said Roman. “But it also looks at future capacity. It does allow for growth. But the whole purpose of the project is to improve the intersection. It will become more efficient, and make it smoother to get through there. At Navarre and Coy, that traffic light has had problems. It’s always been a problem intersection. Clearly, it’s high on the list for accidents. We want to alleviate those accidents. And I think those accidents are from congestion – and not being able to get through there.”

derground. We’ve done that before and we can do it again.” Beazley said he’s discussed lighting with a developer looking at some opportunities in the Coy and Lallendorf corridor. “He brought up the darkness there. He would be happy to be part of a petition effort. Ultimately, the city would have to choose one of three paths: Inertia, ordering something in, or see if there is consensus to draw up a petition effort as property owners look at other alternatives there,” said Beazley. “A petition would be preferred because

it makes it easier for everyone,” said Bihn. “But the reality is everyone on Navarre who has lights is paying for them. We’re not. They’re all assessed. So I think there has to be equity as we move further. I think it gets a little touchier when there’s undeveloped land. But the value of that land is going up, which is a good thing. I would hope a petition would be successful. If not, I think we should definitely put the conduit in. Lighting is a safety issue as well as a commercial issue. I think we really need to address it.”

Lighting Bihn also asked about lighting between Coy and Lallendorf “and beyond.” “I think we need a plan and some approach as to how we’re going to handle this,” said Bihn. Roman said it’s possible to lay an underground electric power supply for future streetlights. “I think it’s something we need to think about. But in terms of lighting in general, the question is, `Do we order in lights and assess them?’ I think council should consider it. There are definitely dark spots.

Permit hearing for glass plant By Staff Writer The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will accept public comments at an April 29 meeting on a draft air emission permit for a glass manufacturing plant that NSG North America is planning to build on Pemberville Road in Troy Township. A public information session and hearing will be held at the Pemberville Public Library, 375 E. Front St., Pemberville. The hearing will follow the information session and the public will then be allowed to submit comments for the record. If the Ohio EPA approves the permit, it would allow construction of a manufacturing plant to produce coated float glass products primarily for the solar market. Float glass is made by floating sheets of molten glass on beds of molten metal. The permit would set a maximum level for air emissions. The agency does not have regulatory authority over issues such as siting, eminent domain, setbacks to homes, schools or businesses, noise levels, traffic, zoning or property value effects. produce coated float glass products primarily for the solar market....

Written comments must be received by the close of business on May 6. Comments can be mailed to Mark Barber, Ohio EPA Northwest District Office, 347 North Dunbridge Rd., Bowling Green, O. 43402, or emailed to A copy of the draft permit is available online. A groundbreaking ceremony for the NSG plant was held April 17. NSG Group said the new plant will support its plan to expand production capacity of transparent conductive oxide coated glass to support the growing solar market. The 500,000-square-foot facility will be located near First Solar’s new plant being built in Lake Township. The area is commonly known as the Eastwood Commerce Center South. Construction on the NSG plant is scheduled to begin this spring and it is expected the plant will be operational in the second half of 2020. The new float glass line will be the first in the U.S. for the NSG Group since 1980 and is expected to create 125-150 new jobs. NSG Group is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of glass and glazing products for the architectural, automotive industry and technical glass sectors.

Cardinal Stritch picks William Berry as president By Kelly J. Kaczala News Editor Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy announced on Wednesday that William Berry will be the new president and head of the school. Berry will replace Fr. Eric Schild, who was president of Stritch for nine years and is the pastor at St. Jerome in Walbridge. The Diocese of Toledo announced the appointment of Fr. Anthony Coci to serve as pastor of St. Jerome and priest leader of Cardinal Stritch. Fr. Coci has been a priest for two years and is currently the associate pastor at Tiffin, St. Mary’s. He served as a substitute teacher at Cardinal Stritch during the 2009-2010 school year. Berry is a known entity to the board and administrative team at Stritch. He will be taking on the presidency on June 3, and will become the 11th leader since the doors opened at the high school in 1961. Berry is a “strong Catholic and an active parishioner at St. Joe, Sylvania,” who attends Mass daily, according to the Diocese. Berry has been the CEO of large companies and has been the agent of change to help them be sustainable and successful. As a member of the Board of Directors, Berry looks forward to continue to develop objectives and to meet the expectations of the Cardinal Stritch family. Berry was educated in Marketing and Finance from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland. He has associate certifications from the Institute of Financial Accounts (1992), and Northwest Score Certified Mentor Advisor (2014). Berry’s experience as CEO, as a chairman, and as a vice president who implemented innovative production and growth strategy will help Cardinal Stritch continue to set goals for excellence and to be able to achieve them through the finance, advancement, athletic, and other departments.

Catholic school is to bring students closer to Christ,” Berry told The Press on Wednesday. “Alongside Fr. Coci, our incoming priest leader, and our tremendous faculty and staff, I am confident this is an area in which our school will continue to excel. “Secondly, having spent most of my career in industry, I’m also extremely interested in ways that we can continue to prepare students for the real world. The Cardinal Stritch Corporate Internship Program (CIP) is the region’s first truly innovative approach to balancing rigorous college preparatory education and real world experience,” continued Berry. “In working with the faculty and staff at Stritch, we will continue to grow this program and all of the opportunities that are made available to our students in all areas of the arts, athletics, academics and extracurriculars to continue to increase the value that students and families get when they invest in a Cardinal Stritch education.”

Vision So what is Berry’s vision for Stritch over the next five years? “First and foremost our role as a

First and foremost our role as a Catholic school is to bring students closer to Christ. as Pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Church and School in Maumee. He succeeds Rev. Keith Stripe, who will be the incoming pastor at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Oregon. A 2015 recipient of Toledo’s 20 Under 40 award, Fr. Schild’s impact at Stritch has been felt throughout the community, with significant growth in Catholic identity, community engagement and fundraising. Annual trips to the March for Life in Washington, D.C., summer retreats to Camp Covecrest in Georgia, and the growth of opportunities for students to grow in their faith daily through Mass, adoration, reconciliation and more are all highlights of his near decade career at Stritch. Fr. Eric is known by students,

alumni and parents for his warm personality, signature laugh and sense of humor, all of which helped connect the school community referred to as The Cardinal Family. An unapologetic fundraiser, Fr. Schild impact on the school’s financial health is significant as well, successfully completing the school’s largest capital campaign, strengthening the endowment fund, and helping raise nearly $6 million dollars. “I have truly enjoyed my nine years as president of Cardinal Stritch, I have found great joy in being part of the Cardinal family and the Oregon community,” Fr. Schild told The Press on Wednesday. “The alumni, parents, friends and most definitely the students made this priestly assignment a blessing and highlight of my 12 years as a priest. Cardinal Stritch will also have a big place in my heart and I look forward to continuing many of those relationships as I move to Maumee.” A community celebration is being scheduled for May 17 at Cardinal Stritch to honor Fr. Schild’s legacy and to wish him well at his new parish and school community. Details will be available at the school’s website:

Proponents testify on the proposed clean air bill The economic consequences from lost tax revenues to school districts and local governments if two nuclear power plants in the state are shuttered were featured in much of the testimony given Wednesday to members of a sub-committee in the Ohio House of Representatives The Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy Generation heard proponent testimony on House Bill 6, which would establish the Ohio Clean Air Program and be administered by an Ohio Air Quality Development Authority. The bill allows an electric generating facility to apply for certification as a clean air resource or reduced emissions resource to be eligible for the program that would be funded by monthly charges billed to customers of electric distribution utilities. Currently, residential, commercial and industrial energy customers pay monthly mandated charges for renewable and energy efficiency/peak demand services. HB 6 would make those programs optional and replace them with the OCAP that would appear on customer bills. Jamie Callendar, R- Concord Township, and Shane Wilkin, R – Hillsboro, sponsors of the bill, said residential customers now pay on average about $4.39 a month in mandates. Those customers would only pay $2.50 a month on mandated charges under the proposed format. Commercial customers would pay $20 a month and industrial customers would pay $250 per month. Users consuming more than 45 million KWh a year would pay $2,500 per month. The lawmakers project the proposed fee structure would collect about $300 million a year for the program. Jamie Beier Grant, director of the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation, told the committee the bill “incentivizes lower carbon emissions versus forcing mandates.” “Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station is located in Ottawa County – the community I represent. “Together with the Perry

Nuclear Plant to my east, roughly 90 percent of Ohio’s zero emissions energy generation is represented in these two plants alone. Closure of these facilities would leave Ohio searching for alternative electric generation facilities to replace the two plants; and would leave the state reeling to fill the gap in these carbon-free generation sources.” Cajon Keeton, treasurer of the BentonCarroll-Salem School District, testified the loss of the two plants would be felt throughout the state. “The uncertainty surrounding the future of Davis-Besse operations has created a lot of anxiety among our staff who worry about the future of their own jobs and among students whose family members work at the plant. However, local school districts are not the only ones that would take a serious hit if the nuclear plants close. Each year, the two nuclear plants pay $30 million in state and local taxes. That tax revenue benefits communities and public schools across the state. If that $30 million disappears, schools and students will be the first to lose out. Closing these plants will contribute to our statewide school funding dilemma,” he said. The committee also heard testimony from representatives of organized labor, city and county governments and others. Jerry Cirino, a Lake County commissioner, said the bill offers both environmental and economic benefits to the state “As commissioner, I want to emphasize today that the Perry Nuclear Power Plant is an engine for economic growth, as it contributes to clean-energy efforts, and secures our power supply for all of Ohio,” he said. Environmental organizations have said the bill is little more than a bailout for the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear power plants operated by FirstEnergy Solutions. “The bill is nothing more than another bailout tax for failing nuclear plants paid for on the backs of hardworking Ohioans. Adding insult to injury, the proposed bill would dismantle one of the only state policies that reliably delivers electric bill savings to customers, decreases air pollution, and creates new jobs in Ohio,” said Trish

If that $30 million disappears, schools and students will be the first to lose out.

By Larry Limpf News Editor

Demeter, vice president of energy policy with the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund. “The OEC Action Fund re-

jects the notion that this bill is for the benefit of cleaner air. The bailout tax will not create any new jobs, and is just another short-term fix to a long-term problem. Wind and solar are the most viable and least risky clean energy sources today and in the future, yet Ohio legislators want to invest in the technologies of yesterday.” FirstEnergy Solutions has announced it plans to shut down the Davis-Besse plant by May 31, 2020 if it doesn’t receive financial support from the state or federal legislatures. It also plans to deactivate the Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Perry, O. by May 2021 and units 1 and 2 of the Beaver Valley Power Station in Shippingport, Pa. by May 2021 and October 2021 respectively.

Juvenile rescued by troopers in traffic stop By Larry Limpf News Editor The Lake Township Police Department was one of several agencies participating this past week in a joint operation that may have uncovered human trafficking. Township officers assisted Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers, who rescued a missing 15-year-old female while conducting a traffic stop April 16 on Interstate 80. The troopers stopped a 2013 Nissan Sentra that was westbound on I-80 for a traffic violation. The female and a male, 35, didn’t have identification but a highway patrol translator called to the scene was able to determine the two were of El Salvadoran descent. Investigators later determined the female had been sexually assaulted by the male and she was being transported to Chicago, Ill. from Paterson, N.J. where she had been entered into a database as a missing juvenile. Township police chief Mark Hummer said Wednesday his department was working with the Highway Patrol and U.S. Border Patrol. The operation was conducted in Wood, Sandusky and Lucas counties. He said Kelly Clark, a township patrol

officer, participated in the operation and the interview of the female juvenile at the township police station. “We thought it would be beneficial to have the female talk with a woman in this circumstance. She did a really nice job in getting the victim to open up as to what actually happened; that she had been kidnapped in New Jersey and we believe she was being transported for the purpose of being sold into human trafficking. Obviously a lot is still under investigation,” the chief said. The victim was transported to the hospital for medical care. Also participating in the investigation were Lucas County Juvenile Protective Services, the Ohio Investigative Unit, and the N.J. Division of Child Protection and Permanency. The suspect was incarcerated with an abduction charge. Other charges were pending at the Lucas County Jail. A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed Wednesday that the Border Patrol has placed a detainer on the man. Chief Hummer said there were also prostitution-related arrests in Wood County as part of the joint effort.

People HPLM director of development retiring The Hayes Presidential Library & Museum director of development, who led the organization’s largest-ever fundraising campaign and introduced new ways of raising money for the organization, is retiring. Kathy Boukissen will retire May 31 after 12 years as the organization’s director of development. “We’ve really worked as a team here, and people feel the passion we have,” Boukissen said. “I’ve never felt like it was a job or career because of my love for the organization and what we stand for. I Kathy Boukissen truly believe in it.” During her years at Hayes Presidential, Boukissen introduced sponsorships for events and programs, helped connect numerous Hayes family members with the organization, started the Gateway to the Future annual fundraising appeal and began the annual membership appeal to recruit and retain Hayes Presidential members. Additionally, she has written grants to obtain funding for programs and exhibits. She also led the Centennial Campaign, which was the largest fundraising campaign in Hayes Presidential’s history and its first major private funding campaign, during 2015-2016. The organization celebrated its centennial in 2016 with a complete renovation of the museum and new, handicapped-accessible main entrance, among other improvements. The campaign goal was $1 million, and the organization far surpassed that by raising $1.8 million for the project. Boukissen’s past experience with running fundraising campaigns allowed Hayes Presidential to rely on her instead of hiring a consultant, saving thousands of dollars. “Kathy has made a huge impact on

the forward motion of this organization,” said Christie Weininger, Hayes Presidential executive director. “I have developed a healthy respect for Kathy’s philosophy behind fundraising. She is sincere and energetic in meetings with potential donors, taking the time to facilitate strong relationships between Hayes Presidential and our investors.” Building relationships is what Boukissen has enjoyed most about her job. “I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and I enjoy finding a way to coordinate where their passion for giving is with an area that benefits both them and Hayes Presidential,” she said. Making connections with Hayes descendants has been very special to her. In 2009, a small group of Hayes family had a reunion at Hayes Presidential. During the 2016 Centennial Celebration more than 200 Hayes family members from 22 states and Canada had a reunion at Hayes Presidential and spent time with staff and getting to know the area. Her experience in past jobs also helped her understand the perspectives of being the fundraiser and being the business asked to donate. Before coming to Hayes Presidential, she was the director of development at St. Joseph Central Catholic High School for 10 years. Before her job at SJCC, she owned The Fanatic Sporting and Gift Store that was located in Potter Village Shopping Center in Fremont. “At The Fanatic, I was asked to donate,” she said. “When I came to the other side, I knew how it felt to be the person asked to give. So, it helped me to understand that side of it.” In her years at Hayes Presidential, Boukissen has seen difficult times and plenty of growth. During the recession in 2008, the organization lost $230,000 in state funding, which caused it to cut staff salaries and close on Mondays all year until 2015. “During my 12 years, when there were

budget restraints, I’ve enjoyed watching how our staff pulled together,” she said. “We never discontinued any type of programming. People just pulled together and did what they needed to do. We also continued to raise more private dollars each year.” In recent years, the organization has grown, adding more programming and staff. Social media has made it easier to connect with supporters and Hayes family members, really helping people feel a part of what Hayes Presidential does, she said.

Ag Notes Conservation Stewardship The next deadline for Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) applications to be considered for funding in fiscal year (FY) 2019 is May 10. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) plans to invest up to $700 million nationally for new enrollments and contract extensions in fiscal year 2019. The 2018 Farm Bill made several changes to the conservation program, which helps agricultural producers take the conservation activities on their farm or ranch to the next level. “CSP continues to be a very effective tool for private landowners working to achieve their conservation and management goals,” said Terry Cosby, NRCS state conservationist in Ohio. “It is the largest conservation program in the United States with more than 70 million acres of productive agricultural and forest land enrolled.” While applications are accepted throughout the year, interested producers should submit applications to their local NRCS office by May 10 to ensure their applications are considered for 2019 funding. Changes to the program The 2018 Farm Bill authorizes NRCS to accept new CSP enrollments from now until 2023, and it makes some important improvements to the program. These updates include: • NRCS now enrolls eligible, high ranking applications based on dollars rather than acres. For fiscal 2019, NRCS can spend up to $700 million in the program, which covers part of the cost for producers implementing new conservation activities and maintaining their existing activities.

• Higher payment rates are now available for certain conservation activities, including cover crops and resource conserving crop rotations. • CSP now provides specific support for organic and for transitioning to organic production activities and a special grassland conservation initiative for certain producers who have maintained cropland base acres. About the program CSP is offered in Ohio through continuous sign-ups. The program provides many benefits including increased crop yields, decreased inputs, wildlife habitat improvements and increased resilience to weather extremes. CSP is for working lands including cropland, pastureland, rangeland, nonindustrial private forest land and agricultural land under the jurisdiction of a tribe. For additional information about CSP, contact a local USDA Service Center or visit the Ohio NRCS website.

Electric vehicle subsidies do not help the environment By Drew Johnson Imagine taxing middle-class families to help rich folks buy luxury cars. Doesn’t sound very fair, does it? Yet that’s exactly what’s happening across the United States. Currently, anyone who buys an electric vehicle receives a federal tax credit ranging from $2,500 to $7,500, depending on the vehicle’s battery capacity. Ninety percent of these credits go to the top 20 percent of income earners. And many states offer additional tax credits. This “reverse-Robin-Hood” approach, which will cost taxpayers $20 billion over the next decade, would potentially make sense if electric vehicles were vastly better for the environment. But they’re not. In some cases, electric cars actually cause more carbon emissions than traditional gasolinepowered vehicles. It’s time to phase out these unjustifiable tax breaks for the wealthy. California kicked off EV tax breaks in the early 1990s with its Low Emitting Vehicle Rule, which aimed to make 10 percent of the

Guest Editorial state’s cars electric by 2003. But despite almost $450 million in EV rebates, only about 1 percent of cars on California’s roads currently qualify as zero emissions vehicles. Undeterred by California’s lackluster results, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont have all adopted similar policies. Some states offer rebates as large as $5,000 for buying an electric vehicle, while others offer free public charging stations, courtesy of the taxpayer, of course. Once local, state, and federal tax credits are taken into account, some EV buyers receive as much as $15,000. Subsidizing EVs disproportionately helps wealthy Americans. Almost 80 percent of EV federal consumer tax credits go to households

making more than $100,000 a year. At a time when the federal deficit is approaching $1 trillion, many states’ pension systems are deeply underfunded, and millions of Americans struggle to put food on the table, is it really a wise use of taxpayer dollars to help affluent families purchase a $130,000 Tesla? EVs don’t help the environment much. Although they produce zero emissions once on the road, battery production for a single EV can emit up to 17.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide. That’s equivalent to the CO2 emissions released from over 1,900 gallons of gasoline. When EVs are charged with electricity generated at dirty coal-fired power plants, they can actually produce more total emissions than certain gasoline-powered cars. In other words, EVs don’t necessarily eliminate carbon pollution -- they just shift the source of those emissions from the tailpipe to the power plant. Between 2018 and 2050, EVs will achieve a net CO2 emissions reduction of just “one-half of one percent of total forecast U.S. energy-related carbon

emissions,” according to economic consultant Jonathan Lesser, author of a recent EV report published by the Manhattan Institute. Any CO2 emissions reduction, no matter how small, is welcome. But there are better ways to “go green” than funding shiny new toys for America’s upper class. Promoting the shift from coal to natural gas in the electricity sector would be far more effective. Thanks to the fracking boom, American natural gas production has shot up 50 percent since 1990. Natural gas is cheaper than coal. As a result, many utility companies have switched from coal to cleaner-burning natural gas. Shuttering highemitting coal-powered plants and replacing them with natural gas plants has helped reduce U.S. CO2 emissions to 25-year lows. EV tax credits aren’t making America noticeably greener. They’re just padding rich people’s pockets. Drew Johnson is a senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research. This piece originally ran in the Austin American-Statesman.

To Avoid a Shortage, Med Schools Must Support Future Doctors Guest Editorial By Glen Jacobs

The United States will be short 120,000 doctors by the end of next decade, according to the latest research from the Association of American Medical Colleges. That shortage will become permanent unless medical schools make the path to becoming a doctor a bit less arduous. Some medical schools seem to take pride in imposing a heavy emotional and physical toll on their students. Toughen up aspiring doctors early on, the thinking goes, so they’re prepared for long hours and high stress when they’re working in clinical settings. That thinking is outmoded -- and risks dissuading people who would make excellent physicians from considering careers in medicine. In order to graduate skilled doctors -- and enough of them -- med schools must invest more in their students’ mental and physical health. It’s no secret medical school is challenging. It should be, of course. Students are learning to navigate matters of life and death. Classes and lab work demand long

hours and significant intellectual effort. Students invest years of their time and significant sums of money. Given these challenges, it stands to reason that med schools should do all they can to help their charges succeed. At some schools, however, the academic culture is toxic. Students are expected to master material on their own; seeking help is seen as a sign of weakness. Nearly half of all medical students report having been publicly embarrassed by faculty, staff, or peers. One survey found that about half of medical students are suffering burnout -- that is, severe emotional and physical exhaustion. Many talented young people have taken note of these negatives and decided that medicine may not be the right field for

them. The number of med school applicants has been flat for the past four years. Neither medical schools, nor a healthcare system desperate for doctors, can afford to see the pool of potential med students dry up. Medical schools can create a more supportive learning environment without sacrificing rigor. Some have heeded that call. The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine offers free mental health care delivered by a dedicated team of providers to its more than 900 students. Stanford Medical School runs a cognitive behavioral therapy program to teach techniques for reducing stress. Administrators have also set up an annual wellness survey specifically to identify and treat the problem of sleep deprivation that’s all too common among med students. Recent academic research has chronicled the positive effect that institutional investments in academic and mental-health support can have on student performance. We’ve acted on the findings from this research at St. George’s University.

Our students work closely with learning strategists to navigate academic challenges. Small-group instruction and collaborative learning environments informed by the latest pedagogical research are the norm. St. George’s also offers programs on timemanagement, effective note-taking, and mock residency interviews -- skills students don’t typically learn in the classroom. All Americans have a stake in improving the lot of medical students. We’ll need a lot more of them to address our doctor shortage. A healthier med school culture may also help diversify the ranks of physicians in the United States. The cutthroat status quo has yielded a doctor workforce that’s almost three-quarters white. Less than 5 percent are black. Medical school should be tough. But it doesn’t have to be miserable. By investing in support services, medical schools can boost student well-being -- and turn out better doctors. Glen Jacobs, DEd, is provost at St George’s University, Grenada.

B-C-S schools facing ‘unprecedented’ revenue loss By Guy L. Parmigian Superintendent of Benton-Carroll-Salem School District Benton-Carroll-Salem School District is a strong and high performing school district and helps to keep our community strong and attractive. Will this continue into the future? The answer is in the hands of voters on May 7. The school district is facing unprecedented revenue loss through no fault of its own. State officials have confirmed the magnitude of losses faced by B-C-S has not been faced by any other school district. There are two factors that contribute to these unprecedented loses. The first financial hit is due to the de-valuation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station by the Ohio Department of Taxation. Devaluation means the department reduced the taxable value of the electric generation equipment at the plant. The de-valuation has resulted in year to date loss of $2.1 million. A second financial hit is the phase out of public utility tangible personal property reimbursement payments from the state at the rate of approximately $278,000 per year, which began in 2015; and this loss is compounding. This phase- out continues each year through 2030, which is a total loss of $4.5 million when the phase out is complete. You may have read in the news re-

Guest Editorial cently about legislation (H.B. 6) introduced in Columbus that would provide a lifeline to Davis-Besse to prevent it from closing in May 2020. We support this legislation. In addition to the thousands of jobs Ohio’s nuclear power plants are responsible for, it is vital that Davis-Besse continue to operate to provide resilient zero-emission electricity and to keep our energy grid robust and diverse. However, passage of this legislation and keeping Davis-Besse open does not fix the financial troubles B-C-S is experiencing due to the de-valuation of the plant. The negative financial impact of de-valuation will not change regardless of the plant staying open. The financial “hit” we have taken due to de-valuation is here to stay. We do not anticipate the value of Davis-Besse will go up if the plant stays open. This said, the passage of new revenue on May 7 is clearly the lifeline that B-C-S needs to remain a strong school district. Issue 2 is a 1 percent earned income tax issue that is vital in keeping B-C-S

among Ohio’s top school districts. This 1 percent issue will not tax Social Security or pension income, IRAs, 401ks, interest, dividends, or rental income. The passage of Issue 2 not only keeps our school district strong, it keeps our property values strong, our ability to attract jobs to the area strong, and our community strong. A strong school district makes this community attractive to business and others looking to relocate. The passage of Issue 2 will stop cuts leading to huge class sizes and a loss of electives, and major cuts in areas such as bussing. The passage of Issue 2 will stop the increase in participation fees for athletics and other activities. The passage keeps the district from being forced to smash the excellence all have come to expect, including community programming. If passed, the income tax will be for a period of 5 years, and subject to renewal. According to the Ohio Department of Taxation, the 1 percent earned income tax would generate approximately $1.989 million per year to be used for operating expenses. There are also two renewal levies on the ballot that will result in no new taxes. Issue 3 renews a 3.9-mill operating levy that directly supports our rigorous educational programming, and Issue 4 renews a 1.2-mill permanent improvement levy, which is used to fund facilities, technology, and safety.

Over the past seven years, the board has prided itself on being fiscally conservative by looking at every job vacancy, and asking if staff can be more efficient and effective. We have cut teaching positions, maintenance, bus mechanic, and administrative expenses. The board’s fiscally conservative actions can be seen when looking at payroll expenses (which account for about 70 percent of the total budget). In Fiscal Year 2012, payroll was $11.5 million. In that year, the board made large cuts to staffing levels. As a result, in Fiscal Year 2013, payroll was $9.7 million. Six years later, in Fiscal Year 2018, payroll expenses remained the same at $9.7 million. This has been done while being innovative, adding services for students, and being one of the top performing school districts academically in the state. These efficiency measures will continue but the magnitude of the annual revenue losses mean that the school district simply cannot cut its way out of the situation without drastically reducing educational opportunities for students. The school board is always looking for ways to always be fiscally conservative for our voters, and not just when money is needed. A strong school district equals a strong community and future. Now, more than ever, an investment must be made to keep BC-S strong for this community and its future. More information can be found at www.

It is time to address distracted driving in our community April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a time to reflect on the seriousness of drivers not paying full attention to their responsibilities as the person at the wheel. Thousands of people are seriously injured and killed in crashes caused by this lack of attention. Sometimes, the victim is that inattentive driver, but many times it may be a passenger in that driver’s vehicle. It is often a person or people in another vehicle, or even a pedestrian. First, let’s exam what constitutes an incident involving distracted driving. While most people may instantly think of a cell phone as a device involved, there are many other types of distracted driving. A driver may be having a discussion with a passenger in his or her vehicle, and the driver may feel it necessary to have regular eye contact with the passenger. This means the driver is not paying full attention to the road. Scenery in the area may also be a culprit, especially in the fall when trees are changing color, providing us with a panoramic view of nature. Even looking at billboards can cause a driver to be distracted for a long enough period of time to cause a crash. Drinks, snacks and other food are certainly causes of distraction for a driver. While some people may be able to place a drink cup into a vehicle cupholder, there will probably be times this feat cannot be accomplished without taking one’s eyes off the road. And sandwiches…well, you can see the problem with them. There are foods that even the best drivers are not capable of handling while driving, like tacos and pizza, yet some people still try.

Crime Prevention Corner by Ron Craig

Applying make-up while driving should be a no-brainer, and if you enjoy reading the Suburban Press as much as I do, wait until you get to where you’re going to do it. There have been several instances locally of distracted driving, evidenced by what has occurred at the intersection of State Route 420 and Libbey Road. Because an entrance ramp and exit ramp to and from southbound Interstate 280 at the Ohio Turnpike, there has been a marked increase in the number of drivers who are making illegal left turns and U-turns from southbound 420 to Libbey road. When people have been questioned why they are making the turns despite all the signage, some have said they were using their GPS devices and not paying attention to the signs. I was posted at that intersection for several hours recently and was told this by one driver. I pointed out to her there were two signs informing people these turns were prohibited, not to mention markings on the pavement, traffic lights showing drivers can only go straight, and that there was a police vehicle with emergency lights activated to thwart such turns. The driver told me she missed all five of these indicators because she was paying attention to her GPS. Now that we are discussing electron-

ics, there are the problems with cell phone use. One of the top issues with cell phones is texting. If you absolutely must read or send a text, pull over to a safe place and stop the vehicle to do this. To talk on a cell phone, even using a Bluetooth device, the best thing is to pull over and stop first. Playing with the car radio or other similar device usually requires the driver to take his or her eyes off the road. And if you are using earbuds or headphones while driving, shame on you. Ohio law prohibits drivers from having both ears covered or plugged while driving because this makes it nearly impossible to hear sirens from emergency vehicles. If you have a passenger in the vehicle, have that person mess with these electronic devices, allowing you to do your job of keeping your eyes on the road. In short, distracted driving is anything that leads to a driver not paying full attention to the road. Remember, it only takes a

Lawsuit wants Clean Water Act enforced for Lake Erie The Board of Lucas County Commissioners filed a lawsuit on Thursday to force the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to comply with its legal obligations under the Clean Water Act regarding the impaired status of Lake Erie. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Toledo, states that the refusal of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to submit a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) to the federal EPA violates the requirements of the Clean Water Act and other federal regulations. A TMDL is a plan for restoring impaired waters that identifies the maximum amount of a pollutant, such as phosphorus, that the lake can receive while still meeting water quality standards. “The Clean Water Act and other federal regulations require the U.S. EPA and the Ohio EPA to establish a Total Maximum

Daily Load for phosphorus and other nutrient pollution causing the harmful algal blooms that blight Lake Erie and prevent its waters from meeting state water quality standards,” the Lucas County Commissioners said. The Commissioners, who are the plaintiffs in the suit, are asking the court to order the federal EPA to create a TMDL for the western basin of Lake Erie or have the agency order the Ohio EPA to develop and submit a TMDL to federal environmental officials. Seeks court order “Lake Erie is a leading economic driver for the entire Great Lakes region. Tens of thousands of people rely on the lake for clean, safe drinking water, their livelihood, and recreational opportunities. We are asking the court to order the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency to comply with its obligations to establish a TMDL for phosphorus and other nutrient pollution causing impairment to Lake Erie or order the state EPA to create one and oversee its implementation,” the commissioners said. A basin-wide, phosphorous limiting TMDL is necessary to begin to drive collaboration and science-based solutions for the survival of Lake Erie, according to the commissioners. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency designated the open waters of Lake Erie’s Western Basin as impaired for recreation due to harmful algae and the presence of mycrocystin. The designation covers the basin from the Michigan/Ohio state line to the Marblehead Lighthouse. Previously, only the shoreline area of the Western Basin and

drinking water intakes has been designated as impaired. The EPA could not be reached for comment by The Press’s deadline. But Heidi Griesmer, Ohio EPA spokesperson, told The Press last year after the agency designated the Western Basin as impaired that there were no plans to establish a TMDL. “We don’t intend to do a TMDL because we have a domestic action plan in place. Normally, you have to do a water quality study and go through the TMDL process. In this case, we have already developed a domestic action plan that basically does the same thing. If we were to do a TMDL, we would be retracing our steps and wasting our time,” Griesmer said at the time. There is a TMDL in place in all the sub watersheds in the Western Basin of Lake Erie, she added.

Goodness Gracious, Sakes Alive,

LaJane Sullivan is 95!

We all know how nice it is to be thanked for some small kindness or good deed which we have done for another. But perhaps more important than the warm feeling that we get when someone expresses their gratitude to us, is the positive outlook that gratitude usually engenders in the person who is grateful. That is, the feeling of being grateful helps to keep us focused on the positive. Instead of harping on how bad things are, or regretting the past, gratitude looks for the positive aspect and the silver lining. And although we all may occasionally feel sorry for ourselves, we can

alleviate some of these feelings by getting into the habit of reminding ourselves of how much we have to be thankful for. Our good health, having friends and family who care about us, and even something as mundane as going to work, are truly things for which we ought to be grateful. We should spend some time each day counting our blessings. We might be pleasantly surprised to find that this exercise itself will make our lives better. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. N.I.V. 1 Chronicles 16:34

Zero tolerance policy for illegal dumping in Toledo Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced on Thursday that there would be a zero tolerance policy for illegal dumping. “I was driving through streets of the Old West End and East Toledo recently and I saw several mattresses, couches, and tires dumped in alleys and along sidewalks,� Kapszukiewicz said. “Those are egregious examples of illegal dumping that I have seen in our city.� He delivered a warning to those who dump illegally in Toledo. “Anyone who thinks that they can dump on Toledo should be ready to be arrested and prosecuted. We have a zero tolerance for illegal dumping. If you are caught dumping, you will be in handcuffs.� The mayor announced that Toledo Police will charge dumpers with reckless dumping, which carries a mandatory, minimum 10 day sentence and a $500 fine.

If anyone sees someone dumping, they are encouraged to take a picture of the license plate and call Engage Toledo at 419936-2020, the mayor said.

gal dumping. The city will spend nearly $40,000 this year to pay contractors to remove illegal dumping from Toledo neighborhoods.

Costly Illegal dumping costs Toledo hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Toledo taxpayers spent $21,000 to clean up illegal dumping on the 1400 block of Utah Street last year. The city had already spent $6,000 this year to clean up illegal dumping in the same area. Toledo Police officers were able to identify and prosecute an illegal dumper from South Toledo, who was using the Utah Street area to dispose of materials removed from his house for a remodeling project. In March 2019, there were 27 new investigations, 40 continued investigations, 17 evidence reports, 12 traffic/all purpose citations issued, 5 warrants issued, and 4 warnings in lieu of warrants related to ille-

Trust fund The city will also spend $500,000 from the Nuisance Abatement Trust Fund for the Beatification Action Team to support community and volunteer-driven cleanup events, fund disposal fees at the landfill, and to pay haulers and processors for recycling, equipment, and labor. The Nuisance Abatement Trust Fund is funded by fines and fees from non-compliant owners and illegal dumpers. Toledo Police has assigned 13 officers to investigate illegal dumping, authorized the use of marked and unmarked vehicles, and directed the officers to appear in court for prosecution. It will cost approximately $60,000 for the police operation this year, which will be funded by the Nuisance

Abatement Trust Fund. Alternatives Toledo offers 12 different free recycling events from April to September, with vendors available to take electronic waste, paint, secured document destruction, general debris, and tires. There will also be four free disposal days at the Hoffman Road Landfill. The free disposal days are hosted from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 1, July 6, Sept. 7, and Nov. 30. Residents are permitted to bring a truck or trailer load of bulky solid waste items for free disposal to the landfill, 3962 Hoffman Rd., subject to terms and conditions. A current utility bill and valid photo ID will be required to verify proof of residency. Acceptable bulk waste items include excess trash, furniture, carpeting, mattresses, wood waste, and scrap metal. Residents are also permitted one free monthly bulk curbside pickup, which can be scheduled by calling 419-936-2020.

Because ready-to-wear clothing is so readily available, the average person may be unfamiliar with custom-made or tailored items. Fittings are a part of wedding planning, and here’s how brides-to-be can navigate the process of finding and being fitted for a dress. • Try on sample gowns. The first step is to make your rounds to various gown shops and try on the samples they have available. Most sample sizes will not be the size you wear every day, so expect them to be ill-fitting. Do not be discouraged. Once a gown is chosen, the dress shop will take your measurements and order the gown according to the manufacturer’s sizing guide. Again, this can be shocking, since the size will likely be larger than what you wear in street clothes. • Schedule the first fitting. The first fitting should be anywhere from eight to 12 weeks before the wedding date. This is the time it takes to complete most standard alterations. Complex customizations can take even longer. Brides should also budget for alterations, which may or may not be included in the price of the dress. • Bring shoes and undergarments. Remember to bring along the exact shoes and undergarments you will wear with your gown. A change in shoes or bra/corset can result in the alterations fitting poorly the next time. Bring these items along to all subsequent fittings. Available fortweaking Parties • Speak up. If anything is uncomfortable or needs be sure to speak up. Seamstresses are masters at their crafts, but only if they understand the desires of the bride. • Check the details. The second fitting is designed to check that all issues from the first fitting have been addressed, the gown is comfortable and you can move freely. At the last fitting, ask the maid of honor to come along so that she understands how to bustle or help you handle complicated straps or closures.

Five reasons why summer camp is a good choice for kids Summer vacation offers students a respite from lessons and the routine of school. Children might once have eagerly awaited those final days of classes so they could lounge poolside, skip rocks across ponds and spend the long days of the season playing with friends. But many of today’s youngsters spend much of their summer vacations indoors playing with their digital devices. Perhaps that’s why one of the last vestiges of the classic summer vacation escape – summer camp – remains such a viable option for parents who want their children to get outdoors once the school year ends. Although kids needn’t be in camp all summer long, a week or two can benefit campers of all ages. The following are five reasons why summer camp might be the right fit this year. 1. Explore talents. Summer camps help young people explore their unique interests and talents. Under an organized,

yet often easygoing, camp schedule, kids can dabble in sports, arts and crafts, leadership, community support, and so many other activities that may not be fully available to them elsewhere. 2. Physical activity. Lots of camps build their itineraries around physical activities that takes place outdoors. Campers may spend their time swimming, running, hiking, playing sports, climbing, and so much more. This can be a welcome change for kids accustomed to living sedentary lifestyles. Regular physical activity has many health benefits and can set a foundation for healthy habits as an adult. 3. Gain confidence. Day and sleepaway camps offer campers the opportunity to get comfortable in their own skin. Camps can foster activities in self-esteem by removing the academic measures of success and fill in with noncompetitive opportunities to succeed. Campers learn independence, decision-making skills

and the ability to thrive outside of the shadow of their parents, siblings or other students. 4. Try new things. Camp gives children the chance to try new things, whether that’s learning to cook, exploring new environments or embracing a new sport or leisure activity. Opening oneself up to new opportunities can build character and prove enlightening for children. 5. Make new friends. Camp is a great place to meet new people and make lifelong friends. Campers flood in from areas near and far. This provides kids with a chance to expand their social circles beyond their immediate neighborhoods and schools. Camps benefit children in a variety of ways. Lessons learned in camp can strengthen values, build confidence, develop coping mechanisms when adversity strikes, and enable campers to make lifelong friends.

Although kids needn’t be in camp all summer long, a week or two can benefit campers of all ages.

Factors to consider before choosing a summer camp Adults often look back fondly on their childhood experiences at summer camp. Camps can provide the opportunity to form lifelong friendships and discover rewarding hobbies that can enrich campers’ lives for decades to come. Choosing a summer camp is no small task, as the options at families’ disposal range from overnight camps to weekday afternoon camps to camps that specialize in certain programs, such as music or dance. Cost also is likely to factor into families’ decisions, as the American Camp Association notes that cost can vary greatly depending on which camp families choose. For example, the ACA notes that the average daily fee at a resident camp is $85, while the same fee at a day camp is $43. When looking for a summer camp for kids, families should make the decision together. Kids should be involved in the selection process, as they’re more likely to have an enjoyable camp experience

if they had a say in where they will be spending their summers. The following are some factors families should consider as they look for summer camps, courtesy of the ACA. • Kids’ interests. The ACA urges parents to consider the child’s interests and personality before choosing a summer camp. Parents might want their children to attend the same summer camp they visited as youngsters, but each child is different. Just because Mom and Dad liked a particular camp does not mean their children will. The ACA notes that summer camps should align with children’s interests and maturity level. • Locale. Locale may only be a consideration for families considering overnight camps. Kids will likely be familiar with the locations of local day camps, but overnight camps might be set in mountain ranges, near the ocean or environments less familiar to youngsters. Kids who love the ocean might benefit from oceanfront

camps that focus on marine biology, boating or other activities involving the water. In the same vein, youngsters who like camping and hiking might be more likely to embrace camps located in mountainous regions. • Session length. Camps may last as little as one week or up to a couple of months. Session length should be considered by families looking at both local day camps and overnight resident camps. Parents who want their children to enjoy a largely schedule-free summer might not

want to commit their children to lengthy camp sessions, even if those sessions are close to home. If parents think their children can benefit from the same structure they’re accustomed to during the school year, then an overnight camp that stretches for several weeks might be what they’re looking for. Summer camps give kids a chance to make memories that will last a lifetime. Choosing the right camp is an important decision that parents and kids should make together.

It’s a new ‘Day’ at the ‘Shoe for Ohio State football It’s going to be a new “Day” at The ‘Shoe this fall in more ways than one. I can’t wait. Last Saturday, a crowd of 61,100 fans saw their Ohio State Buckeyes try to premier a new football team, new strategy and some coaching changes at the annual spring game. If you believed all the pregame talk Coach Ryan Day over the last few weeks you may have been disappointed by the end of the day. One of the highlights was supposed to be the competition between the new quarterbacks, Justin Fields, a five-star transfer from Georgia, and redshirt freshman Matthew Baldwin. Maybe their poor performance was due to nerves, lack of experience or maybe it was poor wide receivers. Whatever it was, it needs some serious repair. In first-year coach Ryan Day’s press conference, he was positive, but he did admit his team is a work in progress and needs considerably more development. He did say that the spring training went excellent, however. There was a no tackling rule at the game which Coach Day called it “pass and thud”. For the black-shirted (meaning no contact) quarterbacks it was more like pass and hug. There were a few times when the auditioning quarterbacks ran the ball if they couldn’t find an open receiver. It was nice to see a runner in that position again, even though, considering the no-contact rules, it was easy to be brave. I did not like what I saw Saturday. Fields was not close to his pregame hype as he frequently overthrew his receivers. Baldwin was more on target and probably played a better game. I will point out, however, that neither got much help from their receivers as there were many dropped balls. Baldwin got more playing time, passed for more yards and had the higher completion percentage at a very poor 55 percent. I did not see the young outstanding talent that has been present in past spring games. When Day was asked at the press conference about the new quarterbacks’ skills, he again stuck to his previous comments that each had their unique talents, but he sees no overall separation between them at this time. That is a smart move, why not continue the challenge and keep them working extra hard over the summer trying to be the fall starter. With the new quarterback situation little attention was paid to the offensive line that needs to replace four players. Junior running back J. K. Dobbins ran hard but not often. Hopefully, over the summer, he will get back to the outstanding back he was two years ago. Garrett Wilson, a five-star freshman from Texas, was one of two new players to have black tape over the red center helmet stripe removed and you could see why. He is going to be a great receiving target. The black stripe signifies that the player wearing it has not yet proven himself worthy of being a “Buckeye” and getting your black tape removed is a big deal. The other player to prove himself wor-

Day is only 40-years-old and has rapidly risen to this, his first head coaching job. It’s unbelievable that his first opportunity is at Ohio State, one of the premier jobs in the college ranks. He appears to have the talents with a strong background. Day moved rapidly through the college ranks getting increasingly more responsibility and then as an assistant and quarterback coach for the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL. He worked under Urban Meyer early in his career at Florida and then Meyer brought him in as offensive coordinator and quarterback coach in 2017 at Ohio State. Day did such a good job that he was selected to be interim head coach over some of the veterans for the three games that Meyer was suspended at the begin-

ning of last year. Then, just after the Rose Bowl, when Meyer had decided to quit, it seemed to be a no-brainer to have Day take the reins. Day lost no time in adjusting his staff. Many of the past weaknesses were addressed such as the offensive line, pass protection and the defense. Day brought in a new defensive coordinator, Greg Mattison, who was responsible for building the nation’s No. 2 defense at Michigan last year. He also stole Michigan’s linebacker coach Al Washington, and made other adjust-

ments to his remaining staff. Urban Meyer was to be the highest paid public-school football coach in the nation at $7.6 million, according to USA Today. Day will make a reported $4.6 million. Day’s assistant coaches will also be treated well as five of the 10 will make close to $1 million and another three will get close to $500,000. With that kind of compensation, the Buckeye Nation will expect few errors and that the team be in the thick of the playoffs this fall. Day said he is going to “simplify” the offense and concentrate on a “fast and simple” style. Remember Alabama and Clemson? Speed kills.

Second-year Clay lacrosse team sees improvement

By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer

We are a lot better, but we need to continue getting better at that.

Getting a new program off the ground doesn’t come without a few bumps in the road. Take Clay’s boys lacrosse team, for instance. Last year, the Eagles finished with a 2-11-2 record, “which was what we expected for being a first-year program,” according to coach Joe Kiss III. Clay entered this week’s games with a 3-4 record, and the Eagles are eligible this season to compete in the state tournament. They are in Division II, Region 5 with the likes of Central Catholic, Bowling Green, Southview, Northview, St. John’s Jesuit and Ottawa Hills. “You can see that our record shows improvement,” Kiss said, noting that the Eagles have already beaten teams that beat them handily last season. Bowling Green whipped the Eagles 16-2 and 11-4 last year, but Clay beat the Bobcats 7-0 this season for the first shutout in the program’s young history. Central Catholic beat the Eagles 11-5 last season, and Clay won this year’s rematch 7-2. “Last year, really, the focus was on basic fundamentals like catching and scooping a ground ball,” Kiss said. “If you can’t maintain possession, there’s no way you’re ever going to score. This year, with another year under their belts, they have those fundamentals down pat. They’re maintaining possession much better than last year. With that, now comes the possibility to go into more in-depth, lacrosse-specific things. Last year we couldn’t do that because we couldn’t catch and throw. They’re having a great time.” The Eagles return all 10 starters from last season, including senior midfielders Cameron Menchaca and Jacob Mosiniak, senior attack Jarod VanHersett, junior midfielders Zach Lambrecht and Zach Rowe, junior defenders Nathan Davies and Tyler Strasbourg, junior attack Austin Murphy, junior midfield/attack Greg Haas and junior goalie Luke Silva. Murphy and VanHersett are the team’s

Junior goalie Luke Silva. (Press photo by Josh Harris top two scorers. “Austin is aggressive, probably one of the more aggressive kids we have on the team,” Kiss said. “He’s not afraid to

get into somebody’s face and try to force a turnover. He’s not afraid to go into traffic, just a fearless kid. Jarod, with his hockey experience, he’s an individual who excels

more than some of the other kids with his stick skills and ball-handling skills. He’s also aggressive and a student of the game, and he understands where to cut and where to pass.” Kiss added that the Eagles’ offense and defense are “pretty balanced right now.” “We’re a little bit better on defense,” he said. “We need to make improvement on the offensive side with maintaining possession. We are a lot better, but we need to continue getting better at that. We just traveled to Avon Lake the other day, and those Northeast Ohio teams take it a lot more seriously and are more committed to it. They could handle the ball, and it showed.” Kiss was the program’s only full-time coach last season and he had one volunteer assistant. This year, he has one full-time paid coach and two volunteer coaches; all three assistants have college lacrosse experience. “Joe Carstensen played at Bowling Green and (volunteers) Mick First and Jason Lohner played at the University of Toledo,” Kiss said. First is Clay’s goalies coach, and his experience at UT has helped him improve Silva’s play this season, according to Kiss. “Luke has improved tremendously,” Kiss said. “Mick relays his experience to Luke, and Luke is getting much better at seeing the ball and getting the much tougher shots in the lower and upper corners. He’s getting a lot better with his clears, when to get into the crease and walk it up. He’s getting all of this from a very experienced coach.”

Genoa’s Pietrowski siblings make college hockey scene By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor

Whether you’re buying, selling, or need some extra help, we’ve got space for you.

Girls rolled to six straight victories to claim the STX Windy City Elite Tournament Championship. Round-robin victories over Madison (3-1), Colorado (3-1) and Gentry Academy (3-0) led to a quarter-final win over Syracuse (4-1) and a semi-final victory over Meijer (3-2) before the Championship game win over Chicago Young Americans (3-1). When Genoa High School held a celebration for her signing to RIT, she was already preparing for a tournament in Chicago that weekend. To get her game this good meant a lot of practice and a lot of travel.

Reaghan Pietrowski

“Obviously, my rink is an hour and 15 minutes away. It’s pretty stressful but the closest rink for me that I train out of is in Sylvania, so that is 30 minutes, but my team has never practiced or played out of there,” Reaghan said. At RIT, Reaghan will be the only Ohioan on the team as most of the roster consists of Canadians. This past season, The No. 5 seed RIT women’s hockey team finished its season 12-18-5 after falling to No. 4 seed Penn State University (13-13-9), 4-1, in the College Hockey America quarterfinal. Meanwhile, Tyler is a sophomore busi-

ness management major at Utica College who played in 22 games last year, getting three goals and eight assists. He had 35 shots and Utica was a plus-four when he was on the ice. He played junior hockey with the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL. This past season, the Pioneers wrapped up the season ranked 14th in the D3hockey. com poll. Utica finished the season with 20 wins on its way to the UCHC regular season title and a runner-up finish in the UCHC tournament. The team set a new school record for games while posting one of the most well-rounded seasons in team history. Five players were named to All-UCHC teams.

Of 43 seniors playing sports this year at Genoa High School, 14 will be going on to the next level to play collegiately. On the average, 1.8 percent of senior athletes play sports at the next level. At Genoa, that percentage this year is over 32 percent. Athletic Director Dan Hartsel made note of that at the signing of five senior girls. “That’s unheard of. I think that is an exceptional class that we have here at Genoa. It’s a testament not only to the ladies up on the stage, but to the people here in the stands — getting them to and from practices, camps, paying thousands of dollars for AAU and all that good stuff,” Hartsel said. Of course, there is one who has gone under the radar — Reaghan Pietrowski will play NCAA Division I women’s hockey at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. She is not the only Pietrowski playing college hockey — her brother Tyler Pietrowski is 6-foot-2, 185 pound right winger for Utica College. The siblings, who are from Curtice, are both successful goal scorers in their current domain. Reaghan, who has been playing hockey since she was 4-years-old, has been with the 19 and under Detroit HoneyBaked Tier 1 team that is based in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Reaghan, a forward, has been the leader in points scored three years in a row as the team is a two-time Michigan hockey state champion and national qualifier two years in a row. She says she owes her talents to her brother. “Before my brother started playing, I didn’t know much about hockey,” Reaghan said. “My brother started playing hockey and I just played on the driveway with him. I was in ballet and I didn’t want to do that.” HoneyBaked is a tournament team that does not play in any league, and their biggest rival is Detroit area-based Little Caesars, well known for their youth travel teams. Last December, the 19U HoneyBaked

Mud Hens to become the Toledo ‘Stingers’ Your Toledo Mud Hens will become the Toledo “Stingers” for two nights, to celebrate the Ohio National Guard’s 180th Fighter Wing during Military Appreciation Weekend, on Friday, June 28 and June 29, presented by Owens Community College. The 180th Fighter Wing, based out of Swanton, is at the forefront of our nation’s security. The more than 1,000 men and women and 20 aircraft are the first defense providing combat ready Airmen for federal, state, and community missions. “The Mud Hens organization is proud to recognize the men and women of the 180th Fighter Wing and the entire Stinger family during Military Appreciation Weekend,” said Emily Croll, manager of events and gameday presentation. “To carry the name ‘Toledo Stingers’ for two days is an honor and privilege. We have the upmost respect and admiration for this courageous unit and all military who selflessly serve our country.” The Mud Hens will wear special Stinger jerseys during both games of Military Appreciation Weekend, sponsored by A-Gas with the game worn jerseys being sold in a silent auction.The Stinger jersey’s base color of gray was chosen to match the F-16 fighter jets. The design features the 180th Fighter Wing patch on the right shoulder with the Stinger insignia on the front of the jersey. Green is used in the bee and on the striping as a tribute to the 180th Fighter Wing tail flash. “The men and women of the 180th Fighter Wing are proud to support the Northwest Ohio community that has done so much to support our mission and our Airmen,” said Staff Sgt. Shane Hughes, Public affairs specialist assigned to the 180FW, Ohio Air National Guard. “Events like this are a great way to enhance the relationships we’ve built with the community over the years.”

Saints getting good one in Marissa Young By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor Siena Heights University women’s soccer coach Scott Oliver knew he had a good one when he signed Genoa senior Marissa Young. “First and foremost I think she is a great student and great kid,” Oliver said. “We obviously recognize her potential and her ability. She scores a lot of goals and had a lot of assists, and those types of playmakers are really hard to find. Those are probably the three attributes that we really like about her the most.” Young scored 20 goals and had 14 assists last fall on her way to becoming Northern Buckeye Conference and Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Co-Player of the Year. She was first team all-conference and second team All-Ohio. The team MVP, she led the Comets to a 10-6-1 season and then got to play in the district senior all-star game. “Marissa was an outstanding player for her entire high school career and one of the most talented and hard working players I have ever coached,” Genoa coach Josiah Hanson told The Press. “Her unselfishness and vision on the field were key to our team’s success and speaks volumes about her as a person. “She could easily have had more goals this season but being a great passer was what was best for the team at times. She is a very smart kid and a great role model for the other girls on and off the field. I’m very proud of the season and career Marissa produced.” She credits her Genoa coaches, various club coaches, Oliver, and her parents and grandparents for their support as she grew up playing the game of soccer. She also has ties to Siena Heights, an NAIA school located in Adrian, Michigan on the eastern edge of the famed Irish Hills region. “I kind of grew up around that area because my grandparent’s cottage is near there, so it kind of felt like home when I first visited and it had really nice facilities and a great soccer program,” Young said.

Marissa Young (Press file photo by Harold Hamilton/ The Siena Heights women’s soccer team finished their 2017 season with an overall record of 12-7-2 while going 6-2-2 in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.

The Saints finished the season with a total of 49 goals, averaging 2.33 goals per game. SHU also completed their season with the WHAC Tournament Championship title.

Capone is the calm sensitive type and Nadine is super irty! We will often ďŹ nd them cuddled together in the same bed licking each other. They walk so well on the leash together, love everyone they meet and love car rides! They must get adopted together and to help do so, their adoption fee is $150 for the two-fur!

Oregon Celebrates 26 Years as a Tree City Mayor Michael J. Seferian proclaims Friday, April 26, 2019 as Oregon’s Official Annual Arbor Day Celebration, to be held at 11am at South Shore Veterans Park Playground on Bay Shore Road just west of Stadium Road. Please join us! As part of the City of Oregon’s Arbor Day Celebration, the City of Oregon will plant trees at South Shore Veterans Park, concentrating around the playground, which is a fun, free place that brings great joy to the children of the Oregon area and visitors to Lake Erie. These trees will enhance the beautification efforts at South Shore Veterans Park, provide future shade for the playground, and create a canopy for the picnic area. The City is honored to hold the distinction of being a Tree City USA, host the Arbor Day Celebration, and continue to promote nature in order to invest in the lasting benefits to our community.

Care Practices & Concerns Don’t prune oak tree branches until late fall or winter. Oak Wilt is a fatal fungal disease. A species of beetle is attracted to the scent from fresh wounds to oak trees and they leave spores of the destructive fungus behind.

Local resident, Colleen Barron, is continuing Betty Carstensen’s long time Tree Seeding Distribution Program. Over 300 first grade students at Coy, Jerusalem, Cardinal Stritch, and Starr Schools received a seedling to plant at home. Colleen met with each class to explain how trees enhance our lives. Seedlings were provided by Lucas County Soil and Water Conservation District.

Don’t leave limb stubs when removing branches. Trim stubs back close to the trunk after cutting the limb a reasonable distance away from the trunk (or main limb) to prevent bark peeling. This allows for the wound to heal and avoid major decay spreading into the trunk.

Attention Oregon Residents: We “Appreciate” any help from residents and businesses for watering new and young “Street Trees.” A weekly slow watering is recommended. Contact the Oregon Street Division through the City’s website,, or call 419-698-7016 for tree questions or concerns including unsafe/hazardous trees.

City of Oregon Mayor Michael J. Seferian Keith Henninger, Tree Commission Chairperson
