Ross murder

Request for new attorney filed By Larry Limpf News Editor A man accused of killing his estranged wife last year has filed a request in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court for a new attorney. Randall Ross, 48, who filed the request Monday, is scheduled to stand trial in the shooting death of his wife, Amy. The shooting took place in March of last year at the N. Leutz Road home of Andrea Swope, Amy’s sister, where the victim had been staying. Ross has been represented by Toledo attorneys Adrian Cimerman and John Thebes.

A hearing on the request by Ross is scheduled for May 11. Cimerman had filed a motion April 4 for a continuance to the jury trial that is set for Oct. 6, according to court records, and a pretrial hearing is scheduled for July 16. The case is to be heard by Judge Bruce Winters. In a separate civil case, the judge last month awarded a judgment of $1.5 million to family members of the victim. The judge also ordered Ross to pay Amy’s family 3 percent annual interest plus costs. Plaintiffs in the wrongful death lawsuit

If we go for a levy, which we know we have to do, it won’t be based on payroll.

Bald Eagle Day

The Oregon school board will likely place an operating levy on the ballot this November to counter the continued loss of revenue facing the district. Jane Fruth, treasurer of the Oregon City Schools District, said at the last school board meeting that real estate taxes were down by 3.5 percent from the previous year due to reductions in valuations. “Besides the real estate issue, our revenue is flat overall. Our expenses are trending about 3 to 4 percent from last year’s fiscal year. You’re all aware school finances are cyclical in nature. In the last fiscal year, we did begin spending more money than we’re bringing in. And that is not sustainable.” She said the board has until July 25 to place a property tax levy on the November 4 ballot. To place a fixed dollar levy on the ballot, the board has until Aug. 1 to act. Board President P.J. Kapfhammer said after the meeting that it will be necessary to place a levy on the ballot this fall. Oregon voters rejected operating levies in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. “We’ve done everything we can to reduce costs and keep education where it’s at,” he said. The district, he added, is losing about $4 million per year. Increased costs to the district include additional busing and staffing for struggling students needing one-on-one tutoring by teachers as part of the implementation of the reconfiguration plan, where fifth and sixth graders attend one school, and seventh and eighth graders attend another. The plan cost the district $551,554. “The biggest thing we were lacking was getting kids who are struggling some extra time. We looked at where were we were failing, in 5, 6, 7, and 8th grades. We were going backwards at those levels. We looked at districts that had the same issues, and saw they had reversed that trend by giving struggling kids intervention time,” said Kapfhammer. “The reconfiguration has been successful. We’re seeing a real improvement.” The district has cut teacher, administrator and staff positions after failed attempts to get operating levies passed in previous years. But some positions, as part of the reconfiguration, have been brought back, including a music teacher, physical education teacher, and a guidance counselor. While noting that about 80 percent of the district’s budget goes towards teachers’ salaries and benefits, Kapfhammer said the levy is needed to stop the loss of revenue due to legislation passed by the Ohio Legislature in 2005 that phased out taxes over five years on tangible personal property of general businesses, telephone and telecommunications companies and railroads. “Oregon lost more funding than any other district,” said Kapfhammer. “We had revenue from the two refineries. When that

was stripped from us, we were hurt big time because a lot of our funding came from the refineries. Our budget went from $40 million per year to $33 million. Currently, we are losing about $3 million per year. If we didn’t spend another dollar, we are still going to lose $3 million per year. Teachers have not had cost of living adjustments for years, said Kapfhammer, though they do get annual step raises, for which the Oregon City Federation of Teachers successfully negotiate in teachers contracts. Kapfhammer said the levy would not go towards pay increases for teachers. “If we go for a levy, which we know we have to do, it won’t be based on payroll. It’s to keep what we have and make sure the kids have the right education, not to increase someone’s paycheck. I will not go to the taxpayers and ask for more money for our employees,” he said. As president of the board, Kapfhammer is getting ready to negotiate with the teachers’ union on a new contract, which expires this year. “Even if we froze step increases, we’re still out $1 million per year. So we would still need a levy regardless of that,” he said. He favors implementing merit pay for teachers in lieu of step increases, though teachers unions across the country have fought strenuously against it. I’d like to go to merit pay. If you’re a teacher doing a great job, you need to get paid more. If not, why should you get paid more? Perrysburg just went to merit pay. I think at some point, educationally, we need to say if you’re doing a good job, you get more money. If not, you don’t. We have some great people who put in a lot of hours. They need to be paid more,” he said. The school board has not yet decided on the levy’s millage, he said.

Hayes Egg Roll

Melissa Manchester

Some may be surprised to learn the famous White House Easter egg roll traces its roots to Fremont, Ohio. It was 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes of Fremont who started the egg roll in 1878. President Hayes let it be known that children living in nearby neighborhoods could gather on the White House lawn at Easter to play traditional holiday games. The Capitol’s lawn was the gathering spot until Congress banned the youngsters because of damage done to the lawns. The Hayes Presidential Center, located at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues, Fremont, celebrates Hayes’ role in creation of what became a White House tradition with its Hayes Easter Egg Roll. This holiday event, sponsored by Roots Poultry and Welly’s Horseradish, will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 19 on the lawn in front of the President’s home. Children ages 3-10 can compete in a variety of egg-rolling contests. Prizes will be awarded in four age groups, and every child will receive a balloon and a free pass to tour the Hayes Home or Hayes Museum. Admission to the event is three hardboiled colored eggs for use in the contests. Children with an artistic flair can enter the Egg-Decorating Contest by bringing a fourth, pre-decorated egg. There also will be face painting, cornhole game contests, and story time. Parents are reminded to have cameras ready for a special appearance by the Easter Bunny. For more information, call 800-998PRES.

Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets through CCHS are $10, $12, and $14 (which includes a $1 handling fee per ticket).

New attorney request for murder case Continued from front page were Swope and the victim’s brother and father, Robert Mominee and Gene Mominee. According to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, Amy was found in an upstairs bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. Swope called the sheriff’s department shortly before noon to report the shooting and told dispatchers Randall had then shot himself and was still at the residence.


Ross was indicted last May on counts of murder, aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and kidnapping. Firearm specifications were included in the indictment. The victim and Ross had lived on County Road 265, Fremont, before she moved in with her sister. According to records in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court, Amy had filed a divorce complaint in 2012, including a motion for a restraining order, but then filed a dismissal notice less than a month later.

Genoa undecided about new police chief By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press The hunt for a new police chief in Genoa remains in a holding pattern. Village council met Monday and adjourned with no decision on hiring a new chief. Council members had conducted interviews with two final candidates last month and held a special meeting March 27. “We’re still talking. We haven’t made any decision yet,” Mayor Mark Williams said Tuesday afternoon. He said council had additional issues to address and had no plans at this time to re-open the search. “We would still like to talk to one individual more,” he said. A search consultant hired by village leaders whittled the applicant pool down to Brad Weis, an Oak Harbor resident who works full-time as a captain for the Toledo Police Department, and Chad Milner, an Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department deputy, who served a short stint previously as police chief in Genoa. Weis, a member of Oak Harbor Village Council, was quizzed Monday by his peers at their regular meeting as to where the search stood. He told them Genoa council was meeting at that very moment and that he had not heard anything regarding the position beyond that. Milner is assigned to range duty until April 13 and was not available for comment Tuesday at the sheriff’s office. No deadline is in place to fill the position, according to Williams. The need for a new police chief came in the wake of the early January resignation of Bob Bratton, a Genoa resident. Bratton, who served as Ottawa County sheriff before coming to Genoa just over two years ago, was convicted in a Toledo district court in late January of misuse of funds connected to his term as sheriff. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents out of the Cleveland office filed charges because of more than $5,000 of Furtherance of Justice funds used for clothing, prescription drugs and tickets to Cedar Point for underprivileged children. An audit by the Ohio State Auditor’s Office uncovered the misspent monies back in 2010. Bratton cooperated with the investigation and paid back the money as well as the cost of the investigation, amounting to more than $7,000. The Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office at that time opted not to file charges. The FBI, however, reopened the case last year. Because of the conviction, Bratton is no longer allowed to carry a gun. His sentencing is set for late May. Street reconstruction The final work on Washington Street reconstruction will resume at the end of April, according to Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. Because of weather conditions, crews were unable to finish the project last year.

The final stages include construction of curbs and laying asphalt. Work is expected to take about four weeks to complete. “It’ll be a little tedious because a lot of the work is concentrated near Sixth Street by the post office and the entrance of the ice cream shop,” Gladden said. Projects list review At the next meeting, council will address some of the special projects considered for the upcoming year and prioritize needs, Gladden said. One project on the table is the revamp-

ing of the aging elevator in the village administration building. An elevator company turned in a $66,000 cost estimate this week for the work, including items such as a new motor system, cab replacements and a new lift system. Additional monies will be needed to cover the work done by the general contractor Yackee Electric. In all, the project is expected to run about $75,000, Gladden said. Besides servicing part of the village administration, the town hall is home to a local theatrical group which operates out of the second floor accommodations.

Genoa Egg Hunt The Genoa Area Kiwanis Club will sponsor the Annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, April 19 at 1 p.m. at Genoa Veterans Park.

Ottawa County Poster Contest Winner Amanda Clark, a fifth-grader at Oak Harbor Middle School, is the winner of the Ottawa County Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual poster contest, which is designed to promote recycling. Her poster was chosen from among a pool of entries submitted by students whose designs conveyed to the community how reducing, reusing and recycling creates a cleaner, healthier and energy efficient environment. Clark’s poster included a picture of a superhero standing above the Earth with the phrase, “Protect the Earth, Recycle First.” It is currently being displayed on the billboard near the BP gas station in Oak

Harbor, near the intersection of state routes 19 and 163. “I’ve enjoyed drawing ever since I was little,” Clark said. “I wanted to use a superhero because they stand proud, and we all should be proud if we are helping the earth and recycling. I couldn’t believe it when I saw my picture on the billboard.” “I am beyond thrilled about this award and recognition that Amanda has received,” Clark’s teacher, Ashley Devito said. “Her picture was beautifully illustrated. In my eight years of teaching, this is the first time one of our students has won. Amanda deserves all of the credit.”

Oregon not in a rush to appoint a new fire chief


By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

We don’t have an uncomfortable feeling with Paul and Mark taking control of the department. We’ve had an enormous amount of things going on with Oregon Clean Energy.

Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian is in no hurry to appoint a new fire chief, a position that became vacant when former Fire Chief Ed Ellis retired on March 7. Paul Mullin, assistant chief, is currently taking on the responsibilities of the top post until it is permanently filled, said Seferian. He and Administrator Mike Beazley are looking at candidates within as well as outside the department. Only two people within the Oregon Fire Department are qualified to become chief: Mullin and Mark Mullins, chief of training and third in charge. “We know what’s in our department,� said Seferian. “We have advertised in different publications. Mullin has expressed an interest He said he wants to avoid how former Mayor Marge Brown and ex-Administrator Ken Filipiak handled the appointment of Bill Wilkins as chief in November 2006, which set off a firestorm of protest among firefighters. After Brown had read to council a letter of retirement from long time Fire Chief Ray Walendzak, she immediately appointed Wilkins, who had been assistant fire chief for just six months. Prior to that, he was fire chief in Defiance, Ohio. Tempers flared days later as firefighters packed council chambers at a meeting to slam the administration’s hiring policies, which they said had excluded them from applying for the positions of chief and as-


sistant chief. As a result, there was considerable discord and low morale in the department until Wilkins left in 2010. “We’ve had many people inquiring about the position. We talked to paramedics and other fire personnel in the department, and they’ve given us names to check out. We’ve done that. We know what’s in our department,� said Seferian. “They are aware today that they can apply for chief. We’ve had open dialogue over the last several years about who would be interested in being chief. Paul Mullin and Mark Mullins are the only two who meet the qualifica-


tions. They are both very well trained people. That’s why we are not in a hurry to rush out and just fill that position until we see where the department is going. As of right now, Paul and Mark are running the department. We’re feeling it out, to see how it goes, and see who else is interested out there. We know we’re in decent shape right now, and want to see if there’s anyone out there who can put us in better shape.� Local preference Ellis told The Press last week that the city should give preference to hiring someone from within the Oregon Fire Department to manage the 100 part-time paid personnel and the 11 full-time paramedics. “I believe if you have qualified people in the department who can do the job, they should get the first hard look. They should be number one on their list,� said Ellis. “They know the department, they know the people. We’ve already gone through the process of bringing in someone – Wilkins – who didn’t want to work with a part-time department. The mayor and Mr. Beazley have gone on record numerous times saying they are not going to change the fire department within the foreseeable future. They want to keep it the way it is. To do that, you have to have someone who knows how to operate the department. Also, a lot of people have been on the department for up to 25 years. If they’re qualified, they deserve a shot.� Assistant Chief Mullin, he said, should be at the top of the list. Seferian agreed that he wants the

department to remain part-time paid. Potential candidates within the department can still acquire training and certifications to meet the qualifications for chief, he added. “Our first desire is to improve the paid on call system we have now,� said Seferian. “It may be what we have for years to come. We would like to retain the paid on call system. Maybe someone else out there can take our system and tweak it, make it better not only for improved response times but also for morale. If anyone else in the department has expressed an interest in it, we will hear them out. But we are not specifically looking at whether we should hire from within or outside the department. We want someone who has the capability to put our department in the best shape possible for the future.� Despite the interest in the position, the city has not yet conducted interviews of potential candidates. “We’ve had an awful lot going on,� said Seferian. “We don’t have an uncomfortable feeling with Paul and Mark taking control of the department. We’ve had an enormous amount of things going on with Oregon Clean Energy. Also with the rough winter we had to get through, and seeing what money we have available in the budget. It’s not a priority because our department is going to function very well with Paul and Mark in charge. We’re still entertaining what’s out there, but with all the things we’ve had to do, and knowing we’re not in dire straits right now, we’re going to take a lot of time with this process. We want to have a great outcome.�

Oak Harbor turning over right to extend sewer lines By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press The Village of Oak Harbor is relinquishing its rights to extend sewer lines to a landfill in Erie Township. The move is being made on behalf of a request from the City of Port Clinton, which is looking to accept waste from the privately-owned Port Clinton Landfill, according to Randy Genzman, Oak Harbor’s interim administrator. Currently, leachate, the liquid created by decomposing waste at the landfill on N. Camp Road, is hauled away by truck. The problem is the land surrounding the landfill encompasses sewer district rights owned by Port Clinton, Oak Harbor and Ottawa County.

County commissioners Jim Sass, Jodi Regal and Steve Arndt voted unanimously March 18 to give up county rights to the area on the recommendation of Sanitary Engineer Kelly Frey, commissioners’ office records show. Village officials looked into expanding sewer lines to the landfill years ago. “The village has no interest in accepting waste from the landfill,” Genzman told council. “Three key variables include: the site is too far away, it’s located north of the railroad tracks and LaCarpe Creek is involved, he added. “Strategically, this is not something the village should be entertaining.” Councilwoman Sue Rahm wondered if the village was giving up physical property in the deal and what Port Clinton gained by

Cards anyone?

the project. Councilman Jon Fickert explained that the village was simply giving up control to sewage rights to that area. The landfill site is four miles away from the nearest village-owned sewer line. And, expansion of that magnitude would cost millions the village doesn’t have, Fickert added. The upside for Port Clinton is that the landfill owner would pay the city to discard the waste and could pick up other customers along the way, Genzman explained. Port Clinton has a different treatment facility and is probably better equipped to handle that type of inflow, Genzman noted. But the opportunity doesn’t justify the risk as far as village officials are concerned. “You really don’t know what comes out of that landfill – the chemicals, the metal,” said wastewater system superintendent Jeff Neff. “I think they are going to have problems down the road.” Downtown zoning changes The Downtown Revitalization Committee aims to revise zoning regulations for the Riverfront Overlay District which runs from the Norfolk and Southern Railroad tracks to Brooklyn Street and Water Street to the riverfront. A request to change zoning language to include projects such as an amphitheater, boat docks, gazebos, patios and other upgrades goes before the village planning commission at 7 p.m. April 14, in council chambers, Genzman informed council members. An amphitheater is an open-air venue used for entertainment, performances and sports. “Are they going to come up with proposals for money too?” Rahm asked. There are no such projects on the table now but it would be up to the private businesses and companies to provide money for upcoming projects, Genzman said. “They just want to open up more opportunities,” Fickert added. Changing the language does not constitute an automatic pass for future projects either. Each proposed project must go before the planning commission and then undergo a lengthy review, Genzman told council. Even the process to change the language is a long one, Mayor Bill Eberle said. The revision request goes before the planning commission, followed by a public hearing and then the commission sends a

ruling to council for review. Council must then hold a public hearing and decide on a course of action. “If they start now, it wouldn’t be done until December,” Eberle said. Valve opening The work to open the combined sewer system overflow valve regulator known as CSO 8 at Portage Street begins in midApril. The village hired a private contractor for $6,500 to do the job, according to Genzman. The site is a critical one in the fight to quell the continued heavy flooding problems that have developed throughout the village over the past couple of years. The temporary opening will not solve the problem but will help flow issues, Neff told council during previous meetings. The village administration met April 2 with engineers from Jones & Henry, the firm tapped to help the village solve its flooding woes. Jones & Henry representatives will make a presentation to the Northwest District of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency at 10 a.m. April 23 in Bowling Green. Part of that discussion will include presentation of a no-feasible alternatives study as well as a request to open other flow regulators. Engineers recently collected residents’ stories and accompanying bills created by the flooding at the public hearing – all of which will be incorporated into the presentation. Members of the Oak Harbor administration will attend the meeting as observers. They will only participate if there are questions engineers cannot answer. “Basically, we’re back-up for the engineers. They’ve put together a lot of data. They’ve done a nice job,” Genzman said. Boat docks return Boat docks purchased through a partnership with the village and the downtown revitalization committee will return for a second year. If weather permits, village crews will install boat slips in the Portage River on April 21. They will not be placed in a “T” formation as before, which was prone to capturing floating tree limbs and other debris, Genzman said. Instead, crews will shorten the docks and place them farther to the east than before.

Councilman wants Oregon firm for recreation project By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon City Council on Monday will consider awarding a bid to Ohio Irrigation Lawn Sprinkler Systems Inc., of Dayton, to furnish labor, materials and equipment for irrigation improvements to the South Recreation Complex. The project is included in the 2014 CIP budget. Bids were advertised, then received and opened on March 28. “Council did express a desire to develop our lawns back there,” Mayor Mike Seferian said at a committee of the whole meeting last Monday. The $137,332 bid of Ohio Irrigation Lawn Sprinkler Systems Inc. was the lowest and best bid. Councilman James Seaman asked if the city had ever done business with the com-

pany. “To my knowledge, we have not worked with this company in the past,” said Oregon Recreation Department Director Joe Wasserman. He said he spoke with Brian Hall, who is in charge of operations at Pacesetter Park in Sylvania, which hired the company four years ago for irrigation work at the soccer complex. He said Hall was impressed by the company’s “professionalism and skill level.” “He also thought they were flexible and worked around the activities scheduled at Pacesetter,” said Wasserman. “Also, they were able to finish earlier than scheduled. With that recommendation, which supported the best and lowest bid criteria, I feel comfortable moving forward. Many times, we are compared to Pacesetter.” Seaman said the city should have given preference to a local company, Landscape Design by Moritz, which had submitted a

$141,050 bid, the fourth lowest of seven companies that bid on the project. “I just have a bias toward a home grown company that has a 43616 zip code - Oregon, Ohio,” said Seaman. “There’s something to that. This is a project that is very close to our residents. When you get into recreation projects, it’s sometimes different from other projects. This is very close to our children, our grandchildren. It just seems like a local company would do a good job.” “We actually agree in the administration,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley. “Whenever we can, we like to go with a local company. We’re held to a couple of things. Obviously, we have to provide the lowest and best. It was clear from the team of recreation and public service engineering that the lowest and best was the company with the lowest dollar amount. We have to come up with a good

reason to not pick them. Local can be a consideration, but only within certain parameters. In this case, the law made it clear as to where we felt we had to go, but also we felt very comfortable with the choice. It’s a good company that’s done some important work and could demonstrate having accomplished that work. Lots of times, we would prefer to go with the local company. We do when we can.” Wasserman said there will be another opportunity for local companies to bid on the ongoing maintenance at South Recreation Complex. Seaman said it would be better to have a local company on call when problems arise. “I’ve had experience with irrigation and sprinkling systems and sometimes they need continual followup over a lengthy period of time and to me, someone from Oregon would be able to do that,” he said.

Farm fertilizer bill has broad support


By Larry Limpf News Editor The passage of a bill requiring individuals who apply agricultural fertilizer to be certified is drawing praise from environmentalists and farm organizations. Senate Bill 150 directs the Ohio Department of Agriculture to establish a fertilizer applicator certification program. The bills sponsors, Sen. Cliff Hite and Sen. Bob Peterson, say it is designed to address run-off problems from farm fields into waterways and they cited algae formations in Grand Lake St. Marys and Lake Erie as examples. Members of the House of Representatives approved the bill Wednesday. It passed in the Senate earlier this year. Rep. Chris Redfern said he co-sponsored the bill in the House because it creates incentives for developing management plans for soil sediment and directs funding to the Healthy Lake Erie Fund. “This bill is a step in the right direction to address the harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie and its tributaries,� he said. “This issue cannot be settled through one bill, but it is encouraging to see the agricultural community work with the legislature

This bill is a step in the right direction


Terra Recycling Day


to make meaningful progress.� The bill requires those who apply fertilizer on agricultural land of 50 acres or more to be certified by the agriculture department or acting under the instruction of a certified applicator. The certification program includes an educational component for the time, place, amount, handling and application of fertilizer – which is defined as any substance containing nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium or recognized plant nutrient. The bill is written so the certification program would start on Sept. 30 of the third year following the law’s effective date. The bill allows the director of the agriculture department to revoke or deny an applicator’s certificate if there is reason to believe the certificate holder recklessly ap-

plied fertilizer in a manner that endangers human or animal health. Also, it allows farm owners and operators to develop voluntary management plans in collaboration with The Ohio State University, soil and water conservation districts and the Natural Resource Conservation Service. The plan would have to be approved by a soil and water conservation district. An analysis of the bill by OSU states a voluntary management plan would help protect growers from a civil lawsuit. The Ohio Farm Bureau described the bill as “good for the state’s water resources and for responsible farmers.� “The legislation’s reasonable approach shows that a clean environment and profitable farming can go hand in hand,� John Fisher, executive vice president of the OFB, said. “�We had some serious concerns about early versions of the bill. Our members were very active, very local. They let the state agencies and lawmakers know what tools farmers need.� He said the Farm Bureau supports record keeping requirements “that are in the public’s interest without invading farmers’ privacy.� The Ohio Soybean Association also supported many parts of the bill while it was being drafted.

Sandusky County

Mental health board seeks levy for services By Larry Limpf News Editor In Sandusky County, voters will again face a levy request by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board on the May 6 primary ballot. The board is seeking approval of a 0.8mill, 5-year levy for operating expenses. If passed, the levy will generate about $904,000 annually and cost the owner of a home valued at $100,000 about $2.30 a month. That’s less than one specialty coffee, says Nancy Cochran, executive director of the board, adding the agency for about five years has been following a policy for allocating levy funding: 10 percent for board operations, 10 percent for emergency services, 20 percent for local initiatives and 60 percent for client services in the counties that already have levies. Although the MHRS board’s jurisdiction also covers Seneca and Wood counties – and Sandusky County voters will see those counties in the ballot language – the levy will be used only for Sandusky County residents’ services, she said, as the other counties are funded by separate levies.

Local initiatives include programs operated by agencies such as the Family and Children First Council, the county health department, schools and courts. Their applications for MHRS funding must include a 25 percent match and the applicants must have a plan to keep programs intact when MHRS funding ends. A 0.8-mill levy request on the November 2013 ballot failed. Cochran, however, says in an age of social media and other trends the need for the board’s services is increasing. Conversations with school administrators, for example, paint a disturbing picture. “Kids today are facing challenges that are very disconcerting: sexting, cyber-bullying, dealing with families involved in destructive behaviors. Sandusky County is not immune from any of this,� she said. “We need to be helping more than what our federal and state dollars are funding, As our federal and state dollars shrink, local funding becomes even more important to take care of our own,� Another ominous trend agencies are contending with is prescription drug abuse. Cochran said economics is fueling the problem because the street value is outpacing the means for many illegal users to

pay. Consequently, social workers are seeing a rise in the use of heroin by young adults. But today’s heroin is more potent than the drug of the 1960s and is being used across the socio-economic spectrum. The MRHS board has been working with Firelands Counseling and Recovery Services and the pharmaceutical company that makes Vivitrol – which can’t be altered to become a street drug as can other medications such as Suboxone, which had a history of alteration, Cochran said. She said the board is attempting to determine the means of using the drug given to individuals in the event of an overdose. While this treats the problem after the fact, the person’s life may be saved. If the levy is approved, the board will convene a planning meeting of local agencies to set local initiatives that will be funded with tax revenues that begin to be collected in 2015. Lindsey levy Voters in the Village of Lindsey will decide a 4-mill, 5-year replacement levy that is used to fund village operations.

Dancing with trustees To the editor: This past Nov. 13, my husband and I were traveling north on Reiman Road near Holt Harrigan Road in Clay Township when we hit a pothole, resulting in $300 worth of repairs to our car. The steering wheel had a severe vibration; I felt the steering was off. The service tech at Sears Automotive said the stabilizing bar link was broken (and the right front tire rim was bent) making an alignment necessary. The rim could not be repaired and I was advised not to drive the car very far until it was replaced. I believed these damages to be extreme, so I submitted a letter to the Clay Township trustees, along with repair receipts and a photo I took of the pothole, which was filled with screening stones several days after we hit it. Their claims adjustor called and told me my claim was being denied, as she was informed a complaint was called in on Saturday, Nov. 9, and a Clay Township employee went out that night at 7:30 p.m. and temporarily filled the hole. She said it was my word against the township’s regarding whether the hole was filled or not. At a Feb. 10 township meeting, my husband and I asked to see time records for the night the hole was allegedly filled, but were told there were none and that the employee who went out that night in the township truck did not turn in time for that night, and that it was still our word against theirs, since we did not make a report. It seemed unjustified that my husband and I were required to show “proof,” but the township was not. I have been made to feel that I ran over any random pothole in an attempt to be reimbursed for damages to my car and that perhaps my car was already in need of repairs. I have had my car regularly serviced by Sears Automotive and have never been advised of my car needing any repairs of that nature. Police chief Terry Mitchell stated at that meeting that a call did come in Nov. 9 at 6:15 p.m. After my third request for complaint call records, Chief Mitchell replied in a letter to me stating there were no complaints anywhere in the township during the month of November regarding potholes. I found the accusatory tone and lack of respect in his letter to be very offensive

coming from someone in his position, but most of all, it contradicted what he stated at the prior meeting. My husband and I went to a trustee meeting March 24, and I asked Chief Mitchell to please clarify which statement was correct. He responded by saying what I had asked for was “complaint” calls regarding potholes and the call that came in was actually for a non-injury accident. The only person at this meeting who seemed to respect our honesty was the actual township road crew employee who suggested we might have been talking about two different potholes. This unpleasant experience has been tiring and it stopped being about the money a long time ago, but the trustees and Chief Mitchell have challenged my integrity and character. It’s disheartening when you watch a trustee shake his head in disbelief while you are speaking about what you know to be the truth. It was at this last meeting when I was speaking, that my husband saw Chief Mitchell look up at the trustees and arrogantly wave his hand back and forth under his chin, motioning for them to cut me off. Soon afterwards, my husband told me it was time to leave because he had had enough. Those damages could have caused an accident and the trustees, along with their police chief, have treated this so lightly and with so little respect toward us that we have been left with a lasting, rancid impression on how public officials are allowed to conduct themselves. When we were on our way home, my husband said he hadn’t seen that much dancing around since the last episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” Melinda and Dave Sandwisch Woodville Editor’s note: Melinda Sandwisch is an employee of The Press.

Let’s also not forget David and Charles Koch, who are pouring millions of dollars into the 2014 mid-terms in their effort to swing the election. What makes this so sad is just how much the wealthy corporate interests get in return. They avoid paying billions of dollars in taxes, while the working class has to pay taxes.

Some tried to reform the tax code.

The Press

She built a business keeping the frail in their homes What motivates someone to leave the security of a good-paying job with benefits for the minefield of business ownership? In Kathy Crabtree’s case, it was reading an article in The Press about the Prism Awards, the local initiative to honor excellence in businesses and organizations in the Eastern Maumee Bay area. The year was 1994, the first year for the Prisms and Crabtree was working as a Registered Nurse in charge of home nursing care for a Maumee company. She saw first hand the growing need to deliver services to the frail elderly who wanted to live in their homes and not in a nursing home. She also recognized there was a shortage of nursing assistants to deliver that care. Need versus shortage equals opportunity, but starting her own business wasn’t on Crabtree’s radar until she read that article. She subsequently met with Don Monroe of River East Economic Revitalization Corporation, a community development organization, and within six months she had a $20,000 small business development loan, a business plan and inexpensive office space in The Andrews Building in East Toledo. The article gave her something else-inspiration. That first year 34 businesses and organizations were nominated and Crabtree saw a small business community she could network with and one that would support her as she negotiated the minefield of regulations, cash flow, escalating costs and revenue fluctuations that would threaten her survival “I saw there was a measurement of quality, or excellence, you could subject your business to,� she said last week. “You could compare yourself against other businesses to see how you were doing.� Three years later, her business, Health Services Connection, which trained and placed nursing assistants and home health aides, won a Prism Award for excellence. Judges lauded her for solving two community needs at once. She trained and provided employment for welfare recipients as home health aides and she helped the frail elderly live independent lives. In 1997, of

From left to right, Lucia Murphy, Kathy Crabtree, and Maria Soto of Health Care Connections. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean) her 130 graduates 70 percent had maintained employment, four were completely off welfare and all aides had decreased benefit utilization. At age 43, Kathy Crabtree was watching her dream unfold. She was making a difference. She explained, “If we can keep people out of the nursing homes at 60 percent of the costs and keep them in the community, they buy groceries, they buy pharmaceuticals, they have a paperboy, they have someone cutting their grass so they are contributing to the community. If we put them in a nursing home because they can’t take out their garbage and do their linen, we make them dependent on the community.� All was not going smooth, however. There were cash flow problems, and there were unfunded mandates and changing regulations to meet Medicare and Medicaid

eligibility. Kathy Crabtree is first a nurse and a nurturer, not someone who wanted her time dominated by paperwork and rules interpretations. She sold the training part of the business in 2006 to Amedisys, a national home health care provider, and worked two years for them while maintaining the home health aide part of the business. Looking back now, she said, “Running a business and going through the crises that you did just make you stronger and make you believe you can survive almost anything, especially if your business is a nurturing business. It gives you the strength to know the core beliefs you have about yourself are reinforced by the fact you could build something that you can be proud of and that makes a difference in people’s lives.� Health Services Connection is cel-

ebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The company’s motto is “Helping you keep your loved one home.� About 40 part-time aides currently serve more than 100 clients. They run errands, prepare meals, attend to personal needs, do laundry and provide other services that help seniors live independently. Today, Crabtree is stepping away from the day to day involvement. In 2009, she discovered she had breast cancer, underwent a lumpectomy and radiation and reevaluated her life goals. While recuperating, she enrolled at Lourdes University and earned her bachelors and master’s degrees in nursing. She has been teaching part-time at Lourdes and, this summer, she will embark on another adventure. Her husband Ray recently retired after working 30 years at Owens Community College. The two have their house up for sale and they have purchased a recreational vehicle and will travel to Portland, Oregon to stay with their son for the summer. Crabtree will teach nursing at Linfield College, instructing another generation on the joys and challenges of following a path with heart. And after that? The two have a daughter in Baltimore, so they’ll spend some time going coast to coast. And, when she looks in the rear-view mirror she will look back with pride on the fact she was instrumental in helping many of her neighbors stay in their homes a little longer, neighbors who fear the unknown that comes from being uprooted from the homes they have shared with their loved one and in which they have raised their children, homes still full of the memories that define a life.

Laughter relieves stress, keeps things in perspective Dare to Live by Bryan Golden


...too many people sulk through life without laughing or even smiling.


Laughter is a wonderful stress reducing and coping strategy. It provides exceptional mental and physical benefits. Some studies have shown that laughter and exercise have similar advantages. Here are just some of the many ways laughter is beneficial. Laughter lowers blood pressure and reduces stress hormones. Cardiac health is improved. Your immune system is boosted. Laughing releases endorphins which ease pain and provide a good overall feeling. Laughter increases circulation and enriches your oxygen intake while stimulating your lungs and muscles. Laughing also enhances relaxation along with the quality of sleep. Laughter boosts your sense of well-being while improving your attitude, mood, and outlook. Laughing makes it easier to connect with others. It makes it easier to deal with difficult situations. Not only does laughter provide all of these great benefits, there are no negative side effects. In as much as laughing has such great results, too many people sulk through life without laughing or even smiling. These individuals don’t spend enough time laughing or don’t laugh at all. Here are some suggestions for adding more laughter to your life. Start with

spending time with happy people who have a good sense of humor. They are fun to be around and provide a good example. Whenever possible, limit your exposure to negative influences. Spending your precious time with activities, people, or information that results in your feeling bad inhibits your ability to laugh. Be discriminating about how you utilize your time.

Stop worrying. Don’t worry about your past or your future. Don’t worry about what other people say, think or do. It’s a lot of activity that doesn’t get you anywhere. Do what you can and then let it go. When you stop worrying you have more time to appreciate all that is good in your life. In turn you will laugh more and feel better. Have more fun. Lighten up. Don’t take everything so seriously. Let stress roll off your back. Take care of yourself. Acting like a martyr doesn’t help you or anyone else. When possible, eliminate activities you don’t like. Look for the humor that is all around. Think funny thoughts. Read or watch things that make you laugh. Tell jokes or listen to jokes. Hang around funny people. See funny movies. Watch comedies. Fixate on the good rather than the bad. Smile. You have total control of your thoughts. Adjust your outlook to be positive. Develop an attitude of gratitude. Maintaining an upbeat perspective is essential for your happiness. Keep things in perspective. Don’t look for things to become upset over. Instead, search for things to be happy about. Ask yourself, will this matter in five years? If not, it shouldn’t matter now. You will make better decisions when you are not

stressed. Since laughter reduces stress, it is essential to sound decision making. Your perception is your reality. Laughter impacts your perception. If you take life too seriously, you won’t think anything is funny. This mindset creates a negative attitude which in turn attracts those circumstances you don’t want. As a result, you find yourself caught up in an undesirable cycle. Laughter improves the quality of every aspect of your life. Happiness leads to success, not vice versa. Unhappy people who become successful typically remain unhappy. Because laughter is determined by your thoughts, it’s up to you how much you laugh. Since laughter gives you a better, happier, healthier, and less stressful life, if you are not laughing, what are you waiting for? Stop making excuses and start finding humor.

Counseling Corner Rewards promote good behavior in kids From the American Counseling Association

As parents, we all want to encourage good behaviors in our children, whether it’s playing with other children, doing schoolwork, performing family chores or simply interacting with adults. Children learn their behaviors by associating them with consequences. When a child is rewarded for doing something well, he has learned it’s a positive consequence. If he is punished for a behavior, he learns it is a negative consequence. And when either consequence is repeated over time, it can lead to a change in behavior. Research has shown that pleasant, positive consequences (rewards) are more effective in changing behaviors than unpleasant consequences (punishment). Such rewards can be either tangible, such as a toy or book or favorite food, or intangible, such as praise for doing something well. But regardless of the type of reward, how it is used is important if it is to be effective. • Reward only occasionally. If a child can figure when a reward will be provided, he or she will only produce the desired behavior when it’s certain the reward will be forthcoming. • Reward extra effort. When a child is rewarded for doing more than expected, the reward becomes motivation to continue to go beyond the call of duty. • Reward immediately after the desired behavior. When the reward is delayed, it loses its motivational power with most children. • Reward effort, not just performance. When your child is clearly working hard to do something well, reward the effort that’s being expended, even if he or she falls short of the desired goal. • Use a variety of rewards. Using one reward constantly can cause it to lose its effect. • Allow your child to select the reward. Giving your child some say in what reward really matters to him or her helps What is Relay Formore Life? make the reward much effective. • When giving a tangible reward, combine it with a positive word or touch. Doing so greatly increases the value of the reward. Rewards shouldn’t be the only motivation to get a child to perform a task. Nor should rewards be used as bribes to get desired behavior. Instead, set a positive example, encourage positive behavior as a meaningful goal itself, and then use rewards sparingly to show that you appreciate and approve of what has been accomplished. When children learn they’re earning your praise and appreciation, that’s the real motivation for behavior to be repeated. “Counseling Corner” is provided by the American Counseling Association.

Electronic records

St. Charles “goes live” on CarePATH system By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer For the last two weeks, Mercy St. Charles Hospital has been having its own unique form of “March Madness.” On March 30, St. Charles, along with Mercy St. Anne and Defiance hospitals “went live” on the Epic/CarePATH electronic health record system, used systemwide through the Mercy as well as Catholic Health Partners. The system electronically centralizes a patient’s medical chart and history, including medications and immunization history, laboratory and medical imaging results, allergies, advanced directives and health powers of attorney information, etc. Physicians and clinicians can access comprehensive patient information anywhere at any time. Patients also have access to their own health records via a patient portal called “MyChart.” The initiative is designed to improve patient care, reduce costs and medication errors and increase efficiency, according to Jacalyn Liebowitz, interim CEO at Mercy St. Charles and chief nursing officer at Mercy. “As of March 30, everything is fully interconnected –physicians offices, the hospital, labs, radiology, the pharmacy – everything,” Liebowitz said. “Now a patient’s information is everywhere and it’s all the same platform –one patient, one chart, not just across all of Mercy, but literally all of Catholic Health Partners statewide.” “We started the initiative by integrating the electronic health records in physicians’ offices three years ago,” said Sarah Bednarski, Public Relations and Internal Communications Manager for Catholic Health Partners Northern Market and Mercy Toledo. “And then last year, we rolled it out at St. V’s and then to three other hospitals. With St. Charles, St. Anne and Defiance ‘live,’ the entire northwest Ohio Mercy system is on one electronic system.” Bringing three facilities onto the system at once was an ambitious undertaking, Liebowitz said. “We’ve had several hundred staff come on board; some of them are our own staff, the rest came from throughout the CHP entire health system.” At St. Charles, two command centers were set up in the hospital basement, one staffed to assist physicians in learn the nuances of the system, and another featuring phone banks which routed calls to various teams of experts ready 24/7 to answer questions about various topics or issues that may arise. In addition, team members, easily identifiable by bright orange t-shirts, were interspersed throughout the hospital to answer questions or issues as they arose. “There isn’t a department that isn’t touched by this,” Liebowitz said. The support team was scheduled to be on site for about two weeks during the “go live.” Ongoing support would be available thereafter from a central command based in Cincinnati.

Dr. Karl S. Fernandes (standing), pulmonary and critical care physician, consults with nurse Danielle Wines, a member of the CarePATH team during Mercy St. Charles Hospital’s “Go Live” period, during which the hospital launched its electronic health records system. (Photo by Sarah Bednarski/ Mercy) “There’s a tall learning curve, but those who have been using the system by and large agree that they wouldn’t want to go back,” said Dr. Ken Bertka, chief medical officer. “For physicians, the number-one advantage is having the information available whenever and wherever they need it,” Dr. Bertka said. “Clinicians and staff members, by and large will use desktop or laptop computers to access electronic records, but the system is also accessible on smartphones for physicians who need to look up a patient’s labs or other test results from a remote location.” “Number two, it’s all standard throughout Mercy and they only have to learn one way to do it,” he said. “Another benefit – it’s not just a passive system; it’s loaded with all sorts of ‘best practice’ alerts and background operations that offer safeguards and conveniences. “For example, when I write an order, I can see the patient’s allergies – they’re right there – but in the background, the system is checking for cross-reactivity, dosage, allergies, etc. and that’s huge,” Dr. Bertka said. “Let’s say I admit a patient for pneumonia,” he said. “There’s a pneumonia ‘order set’ that includes all those best practices built right into it. I can bring it in with a few clicks and then personalize treatment options to what I feel is best for my patient. “Our Epic system connects with other

Epic systems as well,” he said. “For example, if I have a patient being seen at the University of Michigan, or the Cleveland Clinic, or Ohio State, I can access information out of their organizations’ Epic system, through a product called ‘Care Everywhere,’” he said. “We call our Epic CarePATH because this is more than just putting in electronic health records,” Dr. Berka said. “This is about looking at everything we do, rethinking what is the best process to follow and what’s best for the patient and using the technology to support that. “We’ve really had to redesign processes – you can’t just ‘electrify’ them,” he said. And when patients want to look up their own medical records, “there’s an app for that.” Using their computers or smart phones, patients can log onto MyChart and access their medical records, request appointments, check lab results, refill a prescription, provide information access to referring doctors and ask a physician a question. “The goal is to engage patients in their own health care; to keep them informed so they can make informed decisions about their health,” Dr. Bertka said. “Even in the hospital, all of our patients have guest Internet,” he said. “So for example, patients using an iPhone or iPad in their rooms can actually follow right along on the tests that are being done.”

A “Once-in-a-generation opportunity” to end polio for good By Stephanie Szozda Press Staff Writer We are “This Close” – that’s the battle cry of Rotary International members around the world. Partnered with UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United Nations, the Gates Foundation, and many governments around the world, Rotary International has dedicated itself to eradicating polio worldwide for nearly 30 years and feel they are now on the brink of making history. Tim Ryan, the district chair for the “End Polio Now” campaign spoke at the Oregon/Northwood Rotary Club meeting this month on the history of Rotary’s fight against the disease, spreading public awareness and achieving the district’s fundraising challenge. Immunizing more than 2 billion children against polio since beginning the fight in 1985, Rotary boasts a 99 percent-plus re-

duction of the disease worldwide. According to Oregon/Northwood Rotary Club materials, “In 1985, polio affected 350,000 people, mostly children, in 125 countries every year.” That was about 1,000 new cases per day. According to Rotary International and the World Health Organization, in 2011, there were reportedly fewer than 700 new cases; in 2013 there were 406 new cases and this year so far, there have only been 41 new cases in the entire world. Currently only parts of three countries in the world remain endemic for the disease –the smallest geographic region in history, however according to Ryan, due to the highly infectious nature of the virus, if left untamed, the disease can spread rapidly and jump to other populations around the world. The virus enters the body through the mouth and multiplies in the intestine. It can invade the nervous system and cause total paralysis in a matter of hours. Initial symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache,

vomiting, stiffness in the neck and pain in the limbs. According to the World Health Organization, approximately one in every 200 cases leads to irreversible paralysis. Among these victims, five to ten percent die from paralysis of their breathing muscles. Ryan explained there are three strains of wild poliovirus type 1, type 2, and type 3. Of the three strains, type 2 was determined to be completely eradicated in 1999 and case numbers of type 3 are down to the lowest-ever levels with the last case reported in April 2012 from Pakistan. There is no treatment for polio; vaccination is the only defense against this disease. According to Rotary International, it costs as little as 60 cents to vaccinate a child, which offers lifetime protection from the crippling disease. Ryan has been working to spread awareness about the fight and to raise enough money to ultimately reach Rotary’s goal of eradicating the disease worldwide

The Gates Foundation has pledged to give $2 for every dollar Rotary International produces through 2018. Ryan is challenging every club in this district to raise $1500 and 20 percent of district diversified funding through 2018 to meet this challenge. “It is time to make history together.

DeWine says no tobacco products Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine last month joined New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in leading an effort to convince the largest pharmacy chains in the United States to stop selling tobacco products. Led by DeWine and Schneiderman, the attorneys general of 28 states and territories have written to the CEOs of Walmart, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Safeway and Kroger, asking them to remove any and all tobacco products from their shelves. In addition, 32 attorneys general have commended CVS Caremark for its recent decision to stop selling tobacco in its stores. “My fellow attorneys general and I are asking these national retailers to take an additional step forward in keeping tobacco products away from youth by voluntarily not selling them in their stores with pharmacies,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. “The health of our kids is just too important.” “Pharmacies and drug stores, which increasingly market themselves as a source for community health care, send a mixed message by continuing to sell deadly tobacco products,” said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. “The fact that these stores profit from the sale of cigarettes and tobacco must take a back seat to the health of New Yorkers and customers across the country. I urge these companies to do the right thing and remove tobacco products from store shelves.” According to the U.S. Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention, tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. Since 1965, more than 20 million Americans have died prematurely as a result of smoking. The devastating health effects of these tobacco products have been well documented for over 50 years, since the 1964 Surgeon General’s report on the Health Consequences of Smoking. “Furthermore, health care costs and productivity losses attributable to smoking cost the nation at least $289 billion each year,” the attorneys general’s letter read. As a U.S. Senator, DeWine sponsored legislation granting the FDA authority over the marketing of tobacco products to kids. As Ohio Attorney General, he led a coalition of attorneys general who urged the FDA to regulate e-cigarettes. He has also supported legislation in the Ohio General Assembly to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to those under age 18. Gov. John Kasich recently signed this measure into law. Ohio joined other states in suing the major tobacco companies for the harm their products caused. To resolve these lawsuits, the states entered into the 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, the most significant public health agreement of our time. Copies of the letters sent by the Attorneys General are available on the Ohio Attorney General’s Website, www.

essage of the

Since most people would rather talk about themselves, than listen to others, many conversations tend to be rather self-centered, with each party to the conversation trying to outdo the others in their attempt to convince everyone how grand they are. However, if we really want to be the "star" of the conversation, we should stop thinking about what we will say next and really listen to the people we are talking to. And, when there is a lull in the conversation, instead of jumping right in with our own story, we can talk about the other


eek: Take an Interest in Others person or ask them questions about what they may have just told us. This is more than just good advice about how to keep a conversation going; it is a good interpersonal skill, and one way in which we can display a genuine interest in others. We all know how flattering it can be when someone takes an interest in us, so we should return the favor and show an interest in others. So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. R.S.V. Matthew 7:12

Pets are an important part of many families, and a new Red Cross Pet First Aid App puts lifesaving information right in the hands of dog and cat owners so they can provide emergency care until veterinary assistance is available. The Pet First Aid app, which costs 99 cents, gives iPhone and Android smartphone users instant access to expert information to help keep their pets healthy. Additional topics include burns, car accidents, falls and what to do for cold and heat-related emergencies. Other features in the app allow pet owners to: · Create a pet profile, including tag identification number, photos, list of medications and instructions. · Use the list of early warning signs to learn when to call their veterinarian. · Find emergency pet care facilities or alternate veterinarians with the “animal hospital locator.” The Pet First Aid App and other Red Cross apps can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by going to

TMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuileries Gardenâ&#x20AC;? exhibit brings Paris to the Midwest


If you know the Louvre and you know the Tuileries, you know the history of Paris.


When it comes to daily life in the capital of France, the Tuileries Garden has always been something of a theater â&#x20AC;&#x201C;the stage for everything from the political intrigue of 17th-century royals to the leisure activities of 21st-century citizens. Now, the Parisian park can be experienced at the Toledo Museum of Art with the major international exhibition, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of the Louvreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tuileries Garden,â&#x20AC;? on view through May 11. Organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Portland Art Museum in Oregon and the Toledo Museum of Art, with the special collaboration of the MusĂŠe du Louvre, the exhibition presents a rare chance to experience the design and art of a pivotal Parisian public space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you know the Louvre and you know the Tuileries, you know the history of Paris,â&#x20AC;? said Richard Putney, co-curator of the exhibition and a University of Toledo professor of art history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arguably the most important space in the city.â&#x20AC;? One hundred works related to the gar-

den will be on display, including largescale sculptures, paintings, photographs, prints and architectural models. On loan from the vast collections of the Louvre, as well as the MusĂŠe Carnavalet, the Palace of Versailles, and other museums and private lenders, many have never before been ex-

hibited outside Paris. The garden has served as a muse to artists across more than four centuries. Sculptors punctuated the greenery with their renderings of Greek and Roman myths. Painters, like Impressionists Camille Pissarro and Childe Hassam, looked upon the Tuileries from high vistas and captured its visitors through their energetic brush strokes. Photographers from BrassaĂŻ to Henri Cartier-Bresson shot the garden in the 20th century, transmitting its magic through their lenses. But the Tuileries has not only been an idyllic gallery and inspirational model for artists. It has endured the brunt of class politics, revolution and religious strife as well. Originally commissioned in 1564 by dowager queen Catherine de Medici, it was created to serve as the adjacent garden to her magniďŹ cent palace. The Tuileries served as the struggling widowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playground for hosting lavish parties that would establish her inďŹ&#x201A;uence amid European nobility.

The palace stood until 1871, when it was burned during a violent uprising in Paris, leading to its eventual demolition in 1882. Before its demise, many of French historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most extravagant characters lived there and strolled through its garden: Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and Napoleon Bonaparte, among them. The exhibition will explore the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied past, as well as its art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a splendid moment for both institutionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Toledo Museum of Art and the Louvre,â&#x20AC;? said Museum Director Brian Kennedy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This collaboration offers a rare chance to bring the magic of the Tuileries to Toledo.â&#x20AC;? The exhibition is presented in part by The Andersons, Brooks Insurance and Taylor Cadillac. It is also supported in part by an Ohio Arts Council sustainability grant and Toledo Museum of Art members. Admission to the exhibition is free for Toledo Museum of Art members. For nonmembers, tickets are $8.50 for adults and $5.50 for students and seniors 65 and older.
