“It Matters Where You Make It”

Lake Erie culture plays into our brand While running for re-election to U.S. Congress in October 2012, Rep. Marcy Kaptur told 100 Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce guests she believes stronger branding efforts must be made to promote Lake Erie. “I am constantly telling audiences that we live in the most arable place on earth here on the banks of Lake Erie — the most prolific of all the Great Lakes. And, I challenged the U.S. Geological Survey one time to tell me where outside here there is this much fresh water and this much arable land. The truth is, there is no other place,” Kaptur said. “One geographer said, ‘Oh, it’s in Russia,’ and then he said, ‘Oh, there is no arable land next to water in Russia. Well, it’s in Africa. No, that doesn’t work, either, because there is desert around that.’ Yes, where this much fresh water and this much arable land come together, there simply isn’t a place. So, I feel especially grateful that we are endowed with the privilege of living right here in this precious place.” About three years earlier, the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce had already taken an initiative to “brand” the Toledo region, and brand manager Jeff

Schaaf is continuing that effort today. “He’s been part of the new branding coming out recognizing our area, not just Toledo but Northwest Ohio as well, making sure that people recognize and know of the strengths we have in this region,” EMBCC director Sarah Beavers said when introducing Schaaf to the OregonNorthwood Rotary Club. The branding initiative is funded by several organizations, including the Toledo Chamber, Best Nation Toledo, and the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. On April 4, Schaaf and his associates launched a new phase that includes a refreshed logo, “It Matters Where You Make It,” and it includes a new campaign. Schaaf says Lake Erie plays into the branding effort in multiple ways.

Schaaf says the tens of thousands of birders who arrive from around the world for The Biggest Week in American Birding Festival, hosted by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, are beginning a new chapter for the region. He adds that the lake offers the best fresh water fishing in the world, and Cedar Point is ranked among the top amusement parks in the country for its roller coaster rides. Then, there are the industrial benefits. The Great Lakes area includes about one million jobs related directly to manufacturing, about 200,000 jobs related to tourism, about 120,000 in shipping, and more than 118,000 in agriculture, fishing and food production, according to Kaptur’s numbers. “Those (tourism) aspects are important, but from a business development standpoint, those refineries are a huge asset for the region,” Schaaf said. “Those are something, when we are talking to companies that are interested in coming in and they are realizing that the skilled labor that is part of the refineries is huge. “The port is a huge element and the number of ships that are coming through there and the product that they are taking through — just the fact that you can go from our port to the Atlantic Ocean is

Oregon School Board President P.J. Kapfhammer said he will not support placing an operations levy on the November ballot if the Oregon City Federation of Teachers seek a raise in teacher salaries. The board is expected to enter negotiations this month to renew the teachers’ three year contract, which expires July 31. The union, which represents 250 teachers in the district, is going to request a raise, according to Kapfhammer, which he said he will aggressively oppose. The district is headed towards placing an operating levy on the November ballot. Jane Fruth, treasurer of the district, said at a board meeting last month that spending exceeded revenue in the last fiscal year and that is not “sustainable.” The board has until July 25 to decide whether to go with a levy in the fall. But Kapfhammer last week said he is against it and will urge the board not to support it. “Putting a levy on the ballot has to be done for the right reasons,” he said. “And teachers asking for raises at this time is not a good reason.” Kapfhammer said he will not budge from his position, even if it means a teachers’ strike this summer. He said he will also insist on replacing salary step increases with merit pay. As part of the teachers’ contract, most receive an automatic salary step, which is an incremental increase in salary the longer a teacher serves in the district. Merit pay is based on the quality of a teachers’ work performance. Dave Shafer, president of the union, said there has not been a request for raises, though he would not disclose if it would be part of contract negotiations. “We have not exchanged proposals,” said Shafer. “He has no prior knowledge of that.” Shafer also said he doubts there will be a teachers’ strike and is optimistic about negotiations. “The last resort of any union would be to go on strike. That’s not even in our con-

Lake culture plays into brand Continued from front page pretty impressive. The international ships and things like that, most people don’t understand the volume that comes through there.� Rust-belt stigma disappearing For the most part, Schaaf believes that the area’s rust-belt stigma, which Kaptur had referenced in her 2012 talk, is on its way out. Schaaf believes Lake Erie and the region’s quality of life are the selling points. “I think there is still a little bit of that (stigma). I think if you start looking these international investors who are starting to look at bringing businesses here, what you hear is it’s about our access to fresh water,� Schaaf said. “As global warming takes effect and the coastlines are affected, as areas see more drought, we have one of the largest supplies of fresh water in the world. If you want to live near water, where are you going to go?� Schaaf continued. So, people are starting to migrate to this region and to the Midwest in general,

and they realize that it’s not only close proximity to their markets, but it’s also those day-to-day lifestyle needs that are important, and we have those. And, if you are coming here for the water, you also benefit from the low cost of living, it’s easy to get around, and an immense number of cultural assets. “You have the zoo and you have symphony and you have those things for when you are not at work, and that’s what we are trying to say. It matters where you make it from a business perspective but it also matters where you make your life, and if you want a great quality, you can have that here.� Schaaf says there are other elements to the Eastern Maumee Bay region that play into the branding effort. “You have the Challenger Center, but NASA is actually working with local companies to help them improve patents or products that they are working on, and that is happening in our region. It’s not just happening in Columbus alone, it’s happening in our region, too,� Schaaf said.

Board pres. will oppose raise versations. We’re not even thinking along those lines. We’re going to sit down, and try to hammer things out. Obviously, we’re going to try and come to common ground.� In 2008, the union agreed to a 1.5 percent increase in the base salary for each of the next three years, said Shafer, less than the 2 percent increase that was earmarked in the budget. “We agreed to a concession, based on what was budgeted,� he said. “The last contract we negotiated, we offered concessions that they didn’t even ask for so that we could stay off the ballot, keep teachers in the classroom, and do the best job we could educating kids,� said Shafer. Two years prior to that, the union did not receive any increase in the base salary, he added. “So it’s been eight years of concessions and layoffs,� he said. Regarding merit pay, Shafer said he isn’t opposed to discussing the issue. “We have never, ever, ever said we would not look at any proposal. But that’s part of the negotiation process,� he said. Relations between the board and the union have been strained since the union recently filed a lawsuit seeking arbitration on a union grievance. Just last month, the board decided not to renew a lease for the teachers’ union at the Wynn Center, where its office is cur-

rently located since moving from a building on Navarre Avenue last year. Shafer said he was puzzled by the board’s decision, particularly since the union has been paying the monthly rent on time and that there are no other tenants who want to lease the office space. But Kapfhammer said he was annoyed that the union had filed a lawsuit against the board “from our own address.� The lawsuit alleges a breach of the collective bargaining agreement to arbitrate a grievance by the union’s committee chairperson, who was reprimanded by the board for allegedly misusing the district’s innerschool email system. The union states that using the email system for union business is part of its contract. Kapfhammer believes it was used for political purposes.

Lawsuit against chief, prosecutor postponed By Larry Limpf News Editor A civil lawsuit filed by a Lake Township man against the township police chief and Wood County prosecutor has been postponed by court order. The Wood County Common Pleas Court issued the order May 8 to stop the case so another case involving the man, Dan Prewitt, Pemberville Road, can proceed. Prewitt is a defendant in a case filed by Jessy Zielinski, of Adrian, Mich., in which she contends Prewitt is a vexatious litigator. Zielinski and Prewitt’s son, Andrew, have been involved for years in a custody dispute. The Ohio Revised Code defines vexatious conduct as that which “obviously serves merely to harass or maliciously injure another party to the civil action and the conduct is not warranted under existing law and cannot be supported by a good faith argument for an extension, modification, or reversal of existing law.” Zielinski filed the suit in the juvenile court division but it was transferred in March to the general division of the common pleas court. In separate orders, the court also issued stops to proceedings in six other related cases to facilitate the resolution of the Zielinski lawsuit. A bench trial is scheduled for Dec. 15. Prewitt earlier this month filed a lawsuit in common pleas court against Police

Chief Mark Hummer and Paul Dobson, county prosecutor. He alleges the chief on Jan. 13 illegally removed Prewitt’s granddaughter from his home. According to the complaint, Prewitt on Jan. 10 picked up his granddaughter, 12, from school with the permission of her father, Andrew, because, the girl claimed she’d been threatened with a gun by a man staying with her aunt in Sylvania Township. The girl, Prewitt contends, didn’t want to return to her aunt’s home. She was

charged with being unruly and taken to the county’s juvenile detention, according to police reports. Prewitt’s lawsuit says he immediately contacted the police when he arrived home from the school with the girl and asserts he is entitled to an “affirmative defense” shield from interfering in a custody matter. Chief Hummer said police were following a court order when they went to Prewitt’s residence. Prewitt is representing himself in his lawsuit against the chief and prosecutor.

Open house set Throughout the school year, high school students at Penta Career Center have been constructing a 2,200 square foot house as part of their career training. The house, which is being constructed for the Britten family at 10700 Roachton Rd., Perrysburg Township (near the intersection of SR 199), will be open to the public Sunday, May 18, from 1-3 p.m. “Each year, our students construct a house as part of their senior class project,” said Kevin McCann, supervisor of the construction trades programs at Penta Career Center. “Students in our construction trades programs build houses to gain valuable hands-on experience in residential home construction.” Students in Penta’s Construction Carpentry, Masonry, Electricity, Construction Trades and HVACR/Piping Systems Technology programs worked on some aspect of the home construction project, under the guidance of instructors Rob Weaver, Pat Luther, Rob Haas, Mike Hardenbrook, Jason Vida and Mike Knitz. For more information about applying for a Penta-built home, contact McCann at 419-666-1120, ext. 6358. Potential home building projects must be located within a 10- to 15-minute driving distance of the Penta campus. In addition, a potential project must be located within one of Penta’s member school districts.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture is beginning aerial treatments designed to control the gypsy moth population in Ohio. Treatments on 778 acres in Lucas, Marion and Wyandot counties will begin in mid-May, as larva and leaf development reaches the optimal threshold for treatment. Treatments are administered using a low-flying aircraft that flies just above treetops. High humidity, low temperature and minimal wind are crucial for a successful application. Treatment will most likely take place during early morning hours. The department will use Foray (Btk), a naturally occurring bacterium found in the soil that interferes with the caterpillars’ feeding cycles and Gypchek (NPV), a virus that affects only the gypsy moth caterpillars and has no effect on beneficial insects. These treatments are not toxic to humans, pets, birds or fish. Maps of treatment blocks may be viewed online at Daily updates on treatment progress across the state are available by calling 1-800-282-1955, ext. 37, after 5 p.m.

Some of Woodmore Schools students are raising funds to help them attend a competition for Destination Imagination (DI), a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization whose purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. In April, 14 students from Woodmore High School and Woodmore Middle School participated in the state-level DI creative-thinking teamwork competition. Both groups took second place for their solutions/performance. Both also earned a spot to advance and compete in the upcoming Global DI competition in Knoxville, Tennessee. This is the first high school team in the history of the Woodmore DI program to qualify for Global Competition. Competitors will come from 50 states, seven Canadian provinces, and 13 other countries. Students are undertaking the challenge of raising the $8,000 necessary for fees and travel. Thus far, they have gone door-to-door in the community to garner support and donations, and have set up a account ( Woodmore parents are garnering support for the students through both personal resources and social media (i.e. Facebook). Anyone interested in supporting the Woodmore teams may donate at their page or call 419559-1584 for more information.

In his 30 years, Ron Davis became ‘captain of the ship’ By Alex Sobel Press Contributing Writer When it comes to experience and dedication to theater in Oregon, there aren’t many people who come close to Ron Davis. Davis has served as president of both the Genoa Community Theater and The Oregon Community Theater and has taken part in 37 shows during his 30 years of experience, making him one of the local theater scene’s most respected members. “As the president (of The Oregon Community Theater) he was like the captain of a ship,” said Reed Steele, who currently serves as president of The OCT. “When there were possibilities of the organization drifting or going on tangents, he kept us straight and true.” Davis’ interest began in 1986 with Genoa Community Theater, when he was asked to come along for an audition. “A friend told me they were doing a show and that I should get involved. So I went, and I got a great part,” said Davis. Davis’ relationship with The Oregon Community Theater began in 1996, and like his start with Genoa, it began with an innocent request to come to an audition. “A director at the time, Paul Slovak asked me to come audition for a show. I’d participated with Oregon Community Theater before, so that was a great opportunity,” said Davis. “I got into a show and have continued ever since.” With Oregon Community Theater came the chance to reach a wider audience with large, crowd-pleasing shows. “I liked Oregon because they were doing big shows, popular shows. I appreciated that they did musicals,” said Davis. Not content with taking on the responsibilities of a single role, Davis eventually became president of The Oregon Community Theater, while still acting in shows. “I was a member of the board for several years. When (the previous president) let it be known that he would be stepping down, I was interested and willing, and thought I could lend some expertise,” said Davis. The responsibilities of being the presi-

This includes the necessary elements that the audience doesn’t necessarily see on stage. “Even though the audience just sees the finished product, there are always so many more people who are involved who aren’t on stage,” said Davis. “Set design, construction, advertising- the president really has to oversee people to take charge of these.” Running smoothly When a production involves so many

pieces, success depends on the ability of a good president to keep everything running smoothly. “The president has to get people to work together to make a quality season for our audiences,” said Davis. Davis stepped down as president this past year, though he serves as a board member and still takes part in shows. “After seven years, I decided it was time to move on and let someone else take charge, and new president Reed Steele has done just that,” said Davis According to Steele, Davis’ influence didn’t end when he stepped down as presi-

dent. “He was my mentor and a great stabilizing force for me,” said Steele. Though he’s taken a smaller role, Davis is still a very active member of The Oregon Community Theater. For him, his passion for acting is what keeps him involved. “My love of theater comes from being on stage and creating characters,” said Davis. “I’ve been fortunate enough over all these years to be cast in magnificent roles.” Because he both acts in shows and does behind the scenes work, Davis has to give himself restrictions so that he can have time for family and friends. “I’ve limited myself for many years to being in maybe one show a year, so that I still have time for an outside life,” he said. The one limit of one show per season can make it difficult for Davis to decide on which show he believes would be the most enjoyable to audition for. “We just adopted our season for next year. They’re all great shows, so I have to look at them and decide which one I’m most interested in,” he said. Though he may want a specific role, Davis’ experience has found that the character he wants to play isn’t always the one that’s the best fit for him. “I think I’ve always gotten the part that’s right for me, whether it’s the one I wanted or not,” said Davis. “I always get the role that I can best embrace.” The ability to get on stage and perform also allows Davis to take part in something that is completely separate from his everyday life. “When I first got started, my career I spent as a school psychologist. (Theater) was so different from what I do for my career. I call it a mental health break,” he said. And, with The Oregon Community Theater, Davis has found a perfect home for his passion and a great opportunity to put on shows with other people who share that passion. “I think community theater allows people opportunities to do fun and different things with people from different walks of life,” he said. “We don’t all have the same backgrounds or careers, but we all enjoy taking part in what comes out to be a fantastic production.”

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon council on Monday approved an agreement with ARCADIS U.S., Inc., to provide engineering services to design a high service pump replacement and raw water improvements for the water treatment plant. Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian said the design was needed for the Oregon Clean Energy (OCE) Project. The city will pay ARCADIS U.S., Inc., of Toledo, $1,494,600 for the improvements. Oregon Clean Energy LLC will reimburse the city for most of the cost, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman. “The high service pump replacement is for the potable water (drinking water) side of the treatment plant. This was a 2014 budgeted item. Strictly, this is the city’s cost for the work. We would not seek reimbursement on that,” said Roman. The city is planning to provide a supply of raw water to the proposed $800 million natural gas combustion facility that is being developed by OCE. The primary use of the raw water is for the wet cooling tower that will be incorporated into the OCE project that will be located on N. Lallendorf Road. The basic goal of the engineering services is to assist the city with developing plans and specifications for delivering a maximum flow of approximately 7 million gallons per day of raw water to the OCE site on a 24 hour/7 days per week basis, according to Roman. “We are increasing the raw water intake to provide more raw water directly to the Oregon Clean Energy site,” said Roman. The city will need to upgrade or add a low service pump station and water plant equipment to accommodate the raw water needs of the project and the requirements of the WTP. The design will also include a new raw water storage pond of approximately 13.4 million gallons at the water treatment plant that will provide at least two days of storage under maximum use conditions. The pond will need to be designed to have an automated control valve to control raw water flow into the pond. A new raw water force main will be designed from the water treatment plant to

the OCE site, which is expected to be some 3.5 miles long. The new force main will be constructed within the existing Cedar Point Road right of way. Dissolved Air Flotation ARCADIS will also conduct pilot testing to determine if a process called Dissolved Air Flotation could be incorporated into the project, said Roman. “It’s a concept that’s been used for wastewater for some time, but it’s very rare to be used for water treatment,” said Roman. “We’re thinking that our project might be a very good candidate for this process,” he added. “There’s only four in the United States that have it. But to even fig-

We’re thinking that our project might be a very good candidate for this process. There’s only four in the United States that have it. But to even figure out if it’s worth doing, you really need pilot testing done.


ure out whether it’s worth doing, you really need pilot testing done. That is a part of ARCADIS’s contract. If we were to deliver just raw water, OCE would still provide its own pretreatment. We’re looking at this Dissolved Air Flotation as a way of providing pretreatment along with all the other raw water that we’re pretreating for our drinking water supply. It would be a partnership if we were ever to go forward with this.” Dissolved Air Flotation involves putting air into a tank of raw water. Any material suspended in the raw water would attach to the bubbles and float to the top. “A

skimmer would take those materials off the top,” explained Roman. “That process could remove not only organics that are in the water, but algae. The thing about algae is that most of the mechanical devices that are used in pumping raw water will break up that algae and release toxins. But with Dissolved Air Flotation, you’re not breaking up those algae cells, and it’s a much better way to remove algae. Literally, we would not have any concerns regarding algae or any toxins from algae potentially getting into our regular drinking water supply. We do spend a lot of money on filtration, adding activated carbon, to deal with turbidity, or the amount of organics that are suspended in raw water. Any water treatment system that uses lake water or river water has these same problems. For all the sediment that winter rain events take out to the lake, it’s very difficult to treat. So we think there’s a very good potential that Dissolved Air Flotation may work for us. That’s why we want to look at it,” said Roman. Other communities, such as the City of Toledo, are interested in Oregon’s pilot testing. “We think there may be other funding available for this type of process,” said Roman. Besides ARCADIS, the city received qualification statements from other firms to provide engineering services, including Jones & Henry Engineers, Ltd., Poggemeyer Design Group, Inc., and URS Corporation, said Roman. “We determined that ARCADIS was the most qualified,” said Roman. “ARCADIS was the designer of our last water treatment expansion. They are the most familiar with our treatment system and have done a lot of waterline designs for us in the past. We certainly felt they were most qualified.” The energy generation facility, which will convert clean natural gas to electricity, will be built on a 30 acre parcel of land at 816 N. Lallendorf Road, located within an enterprise zone. It will provide enough new electricity for 500,000 homes. Ground breaking for the project is expected this spring or early summer. What the project is expected to create about 450 construction jobs over three years, and 26 new full-time, permanent jobs once the facility begins operations, with a total annual payroll of about $3.2 million.

Non-profit group rehabs housing units for renters Non-profit WSOS Community Action Commission, which assumed management responsibilities in 2013 for Casa Nueva, a 64-unit housing development located at 1606 Dickinson St., Fremont, is working to repair and rehabilitate units so they can be available for renters. Twania Allen and her four children have lived in a four-bedroom apartment at Casa Nueva since 2009. She admits that there was a time when there was no one around to take care of the maintenance of the complex, but she said since the new management agent has taken over, “They have more than made up for it.” First on the priority list for WSOS were the three- and four-bedroom units that

needed the most repairs to bring them up to rental standards. The three- and four-bedroom units include washer and dryer hookups. Renters in smaller units have access to washers and dryers located in the complex community room. “It’s exciting to see what the rental complex can become,” said Kim Walls, the resident manager since 2009. “It has so much potential and I believe it’s going in the right direction.” Some of the plans Walls has for the complex include starting a small afterschool program for the children who live in the complex. She also hopes to organize activities for the children as well as for adults.

Casa Nueva units are available to income-eligible applicants without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, familial or disability status. They are financed through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Rural Development, with Section 8 subsidy provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In fact, if applicants have zero income, they may qualify for a $50 security deposit and $25 per month for the rent. For more information, call Walls at 419-334-3448.

Levy funding hirings

EMS personnel being added to Harris-Elmore Fire Department

By Larry Limpf News Editor

It’s getting tougher to get volunteers because of the change in lifestyle.

Since a levy was passed in November to fund additional emergency medical service for Harris Township and the Village of Elmore, four people have been added to the EMS division of the Harris-Elmore Fire Department. And the department will be hiring another three or four by the end of the month, said James Wilburn, fire chief. “We have hired four new people since the levy passed. We have to hire more personnel for the future,” he said. “We will be taking applications for basic and intermediate emergency medical technicians and paramedics. Also, we are going to be 24hour advanced life support by the first of July, possibly sooner.” Voters in the township and village ap-

proved a 4.5-mill, 5-year property tax to fund the additional service. The levy is projected to generate $289,500 annually. The interior of the fire station on Rice Street is being renovated to accommodate sleeping quarters and a bathroom for EMS personnel. A contract for the work has been

awarded to Johnnies Electric & Heating Service. Township trustees retained Port Clinton architect Ken Schoenfeld to prepare a design plan for the quarters. “A couple of bedrooms and a bathroom are being put in where the EMS office was. They’re moving a wall to make that area a little bigger,” Wilburn said. “We’re hoping to have it completed by the end of this month or early June.” Currently, there are two persons on duty during the day – one from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and another from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. – either paramedics or intermediate emergency medical technicians. The department recently purchased an AutoPulse cardiac support pump, Wilburn said. “We had discussions with our medical director and he highly recommended that we get one because of our distance from the hospitals,” he said.

During the levy campaign, township trustees noted the department relied on volunteers for service since 1975 but job and family obligations as well as increased training requirements put a strain on the ranks of volunteers. “It’s getting tougher to get volunteers because of the change in lifestyle,” the chief said. “But we still have volunteers and those we have are very dedicated. It does take a lot of time but we are looking for more help on the fire department and EMS.” Now in his 26th year with the department, Wilburn was appointed chief in April 2013. Persons interested in applying for volunteer positions or for the EMS positions should contact him at jdwilburn61@gmail. com. Applications can also be filled out at the department’s page at

Water district’s new master plan nearly complete

By Larry Limpf News Editor

It’s been approximately 10 years since this was last done country-wide and several things have occurred since that time.

Years of growth and major projects have passed since the Northwestern Water & Sewer District prepared a master plan, says Jerry Greiner, president of the district, and now it’s time to prepare another. A report of the new plan, which identifies long-term needs for water and sewer services throughout Wood County, is scheduled for completion by mid-summer. “It’s been approximately 10 years since this was last done county-wide and several things have occurred since that time,” Greiner said. “There has been incredible growth and investment in our region over the last 10 years. We have added two major retail shopping areas in the county. There have been major commercial improvements and warehousing additions such as Fed-Ex, Home Depot and Walgreens.” Other major investments include the $180 million CSX Rail facility in the south end of the county, he said. When it opened in 2011, the company called it “… the cornerstone of a new double-stack freight rail corridor between East Coast sea ports and the Midwest.”

Greiner said the district’s location make it a logical choice for businesses reliant on transportation. “We have found that our access to major highway routes such as I-75, U.S. 23 and the Ohio Turnpike makes us a natural site for regional warehousing and as a logistical hub. These create needs for water and sanitary services that are quite different than those of other commercial and industrial demands, and the size is dramatically dif-

ferent for the engineers to design.” All of which underscores the need for an updated master plan, he said. “Large fire-flows are necessary for this class of customers, but the actual usage is minimal day-to-day. However, the capital cost rate recovery is a burden for other rate payers and designers. This results in more impact fees and on-site improvements, which are necessary, and did not exist 10 years ago,” he said. Overall, the number of users is up since the last plan was developed but actual demand has fluctuated little – an indication users have been installing lower-flow appliances and adopting other conservation measures. Greiner said those changes will require a “re-thinking” by the district as it designs distribution systems and other improvements. “One interesting thing we’re seeing in utilities is that total volume treated is probably down,” he said. “A lot of commercial and industrial users have gotten better at recycling. When Toledo was doing one of its studies a few years ago they found the overall amount of treated water was about the same as 10 years ago. It was a surprise to them. They were looking to do some

Trash collection scrutinized in village By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press The cost to pick up trash curbside is under review in Oak Harbor. Republic’s three-year trash collection contract is coming up for renewal at the end of the year. But village officials must determine by September whether they will renew or opt for the one or two-year extensions. Otherwise, the contract must go to bid again. The extension proposals have small increases built into the price to pick up bagged trash as well as increases of between 8 cents and 46 cents in the totes, recycling and senior categories. “They are not huge but similar increases are also coming in the 2016 rates,” Interim Village Administrator Randy Genzman said. The entire council voiced concern earlier this spring about the service.

Village crews collect brush and leaves through Oak Harbor. But according to councilman Jon Fickert, “We pay Republic to pick up the leaves and they don’t.” And there doesn’t seem to be any real incentive to recycle, councilman Jim Seaman said. It costs an additional $3.20 a month for the optional recycling. He said that the village has a 10 to 15 percent recycling program use while Port Clinton boasts a 75 percent rate. “They do that to capture costs to take it to an additional facility,” councilman Don Douglas explained, regarding the recycling option costs. “I’ve wrestled with that program too because there is no incentive to recycle.” Douglas added that contract guidelines were so rigid in the last bidding round that everyone bowed out except for Republic. And Genzman noted the village used to have several different operators picking up trash in the village but that it was

streamlined to one. “We have to do something. There was no competition in that last round,” Douglas said. The trouble with the last contract is that the specifications were so detailed, Genzman said, pointing to a document several inches think, that few vendors could compete. Council wanted to know why that happened. Genzman conceded he didn’t know. That contract was developed under the previous administrator’s guidance. Over the past few months, Genzman has talked to other municipal leaders and trash vendors about their trash collection contracts and new services available. He has condensed the former restrictive guidelines into a more reasonable package, he said. Council will review those changes at the next meeting and consider its next move.

capital expansion work but when they saw those numbers they took a second look and didn’t go forward with some expansion plans they felt were unnecessary.” District engineers have been visiting townships and municipalities in the district’s service area – including Scott Township in Sandusky County – to seek input from elected officials on the plan on matters such as zoning and land-use. Greiner said the new plan report will also reflect tighter state regulations covering home septic systems that will likely result in increased demand for regional sewer plant capacity. “We contract with six regional sewer plants and five regional water treatment providers for service,” he said. “Each of which is faced with tighter EPA requirements for treatment, effluent discharge and elimination of storm water infiltration. But none of this can be done properly without continual planning and realistically analyzing the cost factors.” Twitter service The district has developed a platform on Twitter. An employee named Emily will tweet news and updates from “@ EmilyPostsNWSD.”

Oregon council approves bids for road improvements By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon council on Monday accepted the bids of four contractors to repair a list of roads as part of the 2014 Road Program. Smith Paving and Excavating, Inc., of Norwalk, will make improvements to Isaac Streets Drive for $868,952.15 and intersection improvements to Munding Drive and Dearborn Avenue for $121,760; Gerken Paving Inc., of Napoleon, will improve Cedar Point Road from Stadium Road to Norden Road for $227,142, improve Seaman Road from Stadium Road to the East Corporation limit for $329,060.25, Stadium Road from Corduroy Road to Bayshore Road for $393,979.25, and perform crack sealing for $132,793.44; Bowers Asphalt & Paving, Inc., Walbridge, will improve Brown Road, Oakdale Avenue and Sunshine Street for $179,916, make various pavement repairs for $158,951, make improvements to the wastewater treatment plant fire training center for $13,380, and make improvements to the Street Department salt dome drive for $18,570;

Brea away

Henry W. Bergman, Inc., Genoa, will make base repairs to Navarre Avenue, Woodville Road, and Starr Avenue, including fiberglass grid reinforcement for $254,215. All four contractors provided the lowest and best bids, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman. As part of its major construction projects planned for this year, the city earmarked $800,000 for its roadway improvement program when it put together this year’s budget last November. But council agreed to increase spending to $2,698,719.09 due to severe damage caused by the winter’s record low temperatures and snow accumulations in the region, according to Mayor Mike Seferian. “We’re spending more on our road program than we ever have,” said Seferian. “Fortunately, we have funds available because the trauma that the roads have seen this last winter…fully warrants the road program.” “It’s probably the biggest road program we’ve ever put together,” said Roman The larger projects, including Seaman Road from Stadium Road to the East Corporation limit, and Stadium Road from

Corduroy Road to Bay Shore Road, could wait a year, said Roman. “But my fear is that the large cracks you see are simply going to turn into a pothole, and they’ll be more costly the longer you wait,” he said. “That is the reason for asking for additional funding.” Improvements to Isaac Streets Drive, which includes the replacement of concrete pavement between Navarre Avenue and Munding Drive, is expected to be completed this summer before construction starts on the Coy and Dustin roads intersection improvements, which will likely be bid in July before work begins in August, according to Roman. Coy and Dustin roads intersection improvements consist of widening and resurfacing Coy to provide turn lanes at Dustin Road for the installation of a new traffic signal at Dustin Road. The work on Dustin will involve full pavement removal of the existing concrete pavement and replacement with a new asphalt pavement section. There will also be drainage replacement and utility relocation work associated with the project along Coy Road. “As you look at the list of streets,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley, “it’s important to be aware that we’re looking to

ratchet up the road program for the next couple of years as well. It’s hard to get done much more than this in a calendar year in terms of traffic, people getting around, contract management. This is about all we can get done. But it’s important to note that this isn’t like we’re not doing another road. We think we can have a fairly robust street replacement program for the next couple of years.” Road improvements had taken a backseat since the recession in 2008. As the local economy stabilized due to cost cutting measures and industrial development, city officials during the budget process last year decided to ramp-up the road program this year. “Now it’s time to step up again and make sure our streets are in good shape,” said Beazley. Councilman James Seaman asked residents to be patient as they encounter detours and delays while the road improvements are made. “It’s all going to be worthwhile in the long run. What happened to the streets and roads in Oregon and all of Northwest Ohio is akin to a natural disaster. So this is much called for,” said Seaman.

Village of Oak Harbor aims to put a stop to water leaks By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Officials in the Village of Oak Harbor hope an engineering study underway will detect leaks and offer ways to plug its hemorrhaging water line system. At present, the Oak Harbor water distribution system has a whopping 42 percent water loss rate, according to the estimates of Interim Village Administrator Randy Genzman. Leaks and major breaks attributed to aging waters lines, improperly installed lines and an old metering system are all cited as causes. Courtney and Associates crews are now looking for clues. Village council approved a two-part contract earlier this spring – a $17,000 study evaluates the water problems and another $5,000 goes toward calculating electrical system issues. In early May, Genzman said he antici-

pated receiving some comprehensive answers from the engineering firm by July. Although some of the newer council members were hesitant to lead the village into yet another study, councilwoman Jackie Macko said she believed this was the only way for her and others to learn what the problems are. She acknowledged she knew little about the system’s operation and needed guidance to make informed decisions. Macko has taken an extended tour of the village wastewater plant and water distribution system to familiarize herself with the facilities topping the list of major village issues. The village oversees the water distribution system throughout its water district but receives the actual water from the Ottawa County Regional Water System. Billing is also done in-house. The last water and sewer study undertaken by the village occurred in early 2012. The only result of that study was the

phased-in increase of sewer related rates, according to councilman Jon Fickert. None of the long term goals included in the system were seriously addressed beyond that point, he contends, and major problems have expanded across most of the utility systems. The newer Salem Township Sewer District is one of the central problem areas for that utility. Genzman has sought the expertise of the Ottawa County Sanitary Engineering Office. “We’re looking to do an I & I study,� he said at a recent council meeting, referring to capturing inflow and infiltration numbers. “They have some experience that I think we can build on.� The Village of Genoa has also been on a campaign to revamp faulty electrical and water meters the last few years to quell system losses. Water meter changes are complete.

And Genoa village crews recently wrapped up the final phase of electrical meter upgrades, concentrating on meters that read loads at commercial properties. Residential changes were the first part of the threeyear program, according to Genoa Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. “We used to read them by hand. It was the old dial type. But even though they are tested every three years we had a number of problems with them,� he said. Technologies over the last decade have made considerable strides in more reliable reading systems. Under the old water-reading meter system, the difference between the outside and inside readings could be a couple of hundred gallons difference, Gladden said. The same is true for Oak Harbor water meters. Replacing the electrical and water meter systems could be a costly venture, Genzman told council, but it’s something that may need serious consideration.

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

MAY 19, 2014


The Press Poll

What is your favorite memory of summer when you were a kid?

Would you not patronize a business if you disagreed with the owner's political views? Yes No

Ed Olvera Toledo "Going to my Dad's softball games, and when his games got rained out, me and my brothers were so sad because we wanted to go to the ball park with Dad."

Randy Knisely Toledo "Winning the little league baseball championship. We were Garſeld and we had a woman coach and everyone got mad at us because we beat them all with a woman coach."

In the political arena To the editor: This pertains to a column by Frank Bruni, of the New York Times, about an employment contact between the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and its teachers. It asks if Pope Francis would sign a teacher contract proposed by the archdiocese and addresses matters of sexual morality and who should Catholics vote for. It goes on to say that the church forbids a homosexual life style and any public support of one. Are they not God’s children? The next one is support for only candidates who are pro-life or they will be fired. Correct me if I am wrong – isn’t that going against our First Amendment rights? This is hypocrisy. In this teachers’ contract, it also states that surrogacy, even in vitro fertilization, is forbidden, and of course, vocal support for women’s rights is forbidden. Why doesn’t it have in that contract that priests who molest little children be thrown in jail for life instead of hiding them and allowing them to continue to be around innocent children? If Catholic schools are allowed an exemption from public accountability,

Damon Vasquez Toledo "Fishing with my dad. We went to Turtle Creek. We'd go at like nine in the morning and wouldn't leave until like twelve at night and usually it would be me and my brother catching all of the ſsh."


Claire Newman Perrysburg "Probably going to the Toledo Zoo with my family... my grandma and my cousins. I liked to see the elephants and the penguins the best."

To cast your ballot, go to

Melanie Jacobs Toledo "Summer vacations. Going on trips with my family to like the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. or Gettysburg. My mom's a history teacher at Washington Local so we would go all over to see stuff."

shouldn’t they be denied public money? In Ohio, they get a significant amount of it, in the form of school-choice vouchers that families can use for parochial education. It is time the Catholic Church starts paying taxes like the rest of us. They put themselves in the political arena and now they must pay their taxes. Joann Schiavone Walbridge

Respect the flag To the editor: On the morning of Veterans Day in 2013 I went out to lower the flag at the memorial I built in our yard that honors all veterans and noticed that the American flag at the Veterans Memorial on Fostoria Road was not at half-staff. I went over to Millbury’s administration building, and found a worker and introduced myself and that I was a Vietnam veteran and wanted to know why the flag was not at half-staff.

In turn he mentioned that he was also a veteran and that he was not instructed to lower the flag. I said that I would volunteer to lower the flag on days it was to be flown at half-staff. He said, “We don’t need your help” along with other words and then walked away while I was still standing there. Under my breath I said,” You have not heard the last of me.” As long as that Veterans Memorial Park has been there I have yet to see the American flag flown at half staff even when the President orders all flags to be flown at half staff. On May 7 of this year I noticed the American flag that flies at the memorial was torn. I thought it needed be taken down, destroyed properly, and a new flag should be raised with honors. That same day I made a call to the mayor’s office in Millbury and left a message that the flag should be replaced. With that I received a call from Mayor Michael Timmons, who said the flag would be re-

placed. A new American flag now flies at the memorial. May 15, 2014 was Peace Officer Memorial Day and May 11-17 was designated National Police Week. President Obama called upon all Americans to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and that the flag be flown at half-staff. He also encouraged all Americans to display the American flag at half-staff from their homes and businesses on that day There is a website that you can join and each month you will be sent a reminder upon raising the flag then to lower it at half staff: flyflaghalfmast.php Ed Hart Millbury

Don’t lower your standards to settle for mediocrity You don’t have to settle for less than you want. Lowering of one’s standards is more common than striving to boost results. Reducing expectations obviously requires less effort. But if you want less and get less, will you really be content? All too often we hear discouraging comments such as, “stop dreaming,” “that’s not realistic,” “you’re expecting too much,” or “that’s just not possible.” Believing these statements cause us to lower our expectations. Our measure of acceptability is then reduced accordingly. Taking this approach leads to a life of mediocrity. You accept what is rather than expecting what could be. Excuses are used to justify where you are. When you settle, absence of pain is interpreted as happiness. Lack of sadness becomes happiness. Lowering the bar to accommodate mediocrity causes a decline in results. A case in point is the approach used by school districts in response to worsening student test scores. In order give the illusion of more successful students, the minimum passing grade is lowered. This approach effectively sanctions mediocrity instead of boosting performance. Are you taking the same approach in your life? Do you settle by lowering your standards to make circumstances feel better than they actually are? The trap is comparing one situation to another one which is even worse. In so doing, the better situation can be justified in comparison to how bad things were or could be. Jon always had a vision of what he wanted in an ideal personal relationship. He felt it should be one of mutual caring

by Bryan Golden and sharing, where each was an equal partner concerned about the wellbeing of the other. The reality of Jon’s relationship with Mary was much different than what he imagined it should be. They’re interaction fluctuated a great deal. There were constant ups and extreme downs. Jon never knew what would be transpiring next. The low points were complete agony for Jon. During those periods, he felt frustrated, sad, and depressed. As much as he suffered, Jon was hesitant to end the relationship. He had been together with Mary for several years and didn’t have a lot of


self-confidence that he would be able to find another relationship. Furthermore, when things were calm, Jon felt good. Even though the relationship on the best days was clearly not what he used to hope for, compared to the worst days, they seemed outstanding. Jon was settling for less than what he really wanted. He made excuses to justify remaining where he was instead of working to achieve his ideal situation. Jon was settling for, “It’s the best I can do.” This is just one example. The same scenario plays out with jobs, living situations, friends, recreation, etc. It’s not an issue of who is right and who is wrong. The important focus is whether or not you are achieving what you really want. Waiting for circumstances to improve is not an effective strategy. Deliberate action is required to either transform your situation into what you were hoping for or

Since 1972

change to a more desirable path. Achieving your dreams takes persistence. Not everything works out as planned. Don’t become discouraged. Don’t give up. It takes as much effort to suffer and settle as it does to achieve what you want. You don’t have to settle for less than you actually want. Set your standards to reflect what you truly want in life. You never need to feel guilty for having high goals. Don’t formulate standards based on comparison to other people or situations. Remember that true joy is much more than absence of sadness.

Acclaimed actress finds there’s more to birding than a life list Birders...the next generation

Natalie, Anna and Levi Puffer, accompanied by their mother Hope Connell, spent part of Mother’s Day birding at the Magee Marsh Boardwalk. The Bowling Green family was among the estimated 70,000 birders expected to visit the Lake Erie marshes during the spring migration. One couple from Manchester, England traveled here for the fourth consecutive year. They saw an average of 80 different species each day they were birding. (Press photo by John Szozda) Bottom photo, a rare sighting of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks spotted at Pearson Metropark North, Oregon. (Photo courtesy of Mary Breymaier)

Page Two

by John Szozda Before her visit here, Taylor took a bird watching trip to the top of the Empire State Building. She explained why she watches birds in a blog she wrote for the New York Times: “Their resilience, endurance and tenacity are stunning. What can these creatures, perfected by millions of years of evolution, teach me? “They have all just left a warm, safe and comfortable clime for what? A harrowing journey filled with starvation, exhaustion and possible death all to find a mate and breed? And if they are so fortunate to safely reach land, come fall they must make the epic journey back south. They don’t ask why or what for; they just do…We too also

A harrowing journey filled with starvation, exhaustion and possible death all to find a mate and breed?

The bad news is Lili Taylor’s television show has been cancelled; the good news is she has more time for the birds. Taylor, who was on the Magee Marsh Boardwalk Wednesday, said she recently received the news her show, Almost Human, was not being renewed. The science fiction drama co-starring Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings) and Michael Ealy, aired for 14 episodes. Taylor played Captain Sandra Maldonado, the tough boss of a gruff detective (Urban) with a synthetic leg and his android partner (Ealy), who has trouble keeping his emotions in check. Taylor said she’s taken the bad news in stride and was looking forward to her fourth day on the Lake Erie marshes, hoping to catch a glimpse of one of the world’s rarest birds, the Kirtland warbler. “That would be pretty amazing,” she said. The Kirtland has yet to make an appearance this year. The warbler, which nests primarily in three counties in Northeastern Michigan and winters in the Bahamas, was once on the Endangered Species List. Last year, it made a guest appearance on the beach trail at Magee Marsh, creating a buzz among Twitter users. This is the third year Taylor has come to the Biggest Week in American Birding Festival. So, what brings her back? “Kim and Kenn (Kaufman) have done a great job of creating a manageable and a warm, easy environment to hang out with other birders and, of course, to look at the warblers,” Taylor said. Kim Kaufman is the director of the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, the host organization for the festival and her husband Kenn is a noted author of field guides. The lure for birders like Lili Taylor is that a large number of birds are concentrated in a small area and in close proximity to the ground. In a typical spring migration period, some 230 species are seen feeding and resting in the Lake Erie marshes before crossing the Great Lakes on their way to their northern nesting grounds. Taylor said she has seen about 20 different warblers this trip and is more into the experience than in compiling a life list. She started bird watching in earnest four years ago and has since been named to the board of the American Birding Association. “I’ve always loved birds, but I really didn’t know there were all these other people who love birds too. The Internet and the iPhone helped me connect with this whole community,” she said. Taylor lives in New York and has appeared in many movies and television shows, most notably the Indie movie Mystic Pizza and the television series Six Feet Under. She has been nominated for two prime time Emmy Awards.

Lili Taylor keep going, despite the difficulties, risks and unanswerable whys.” You can see, that for Lili Taylor, bird watching is more about seeing the bird than compiling a life list. The lessons she is learning about resiliency, endurance and

tenancy will see her through the uncertain career she has chosen, one that will find her a star one week and unemployed the next. Comment at zoz@presspublications. com

HOME, YARD & GARDEN Lessen your pool’s environmental impact Animals may help your garden Planning and maintaining a garden requires a lot of effort, which can result in an aesthetically pleasing addition to the landscape. But that hard work can also fall victim to nature when local wildlife find a garden too mouth-watering to resist. In an effort to rid a garden of unwanted pests, gardeners may unwittingly scare away animals and insects that might just protect the garden from more ill-intentioned animals. Not every creature that scurries is out to get prized petunias or to devour tomatoes. In fact, many can prove beneficial to gardens. Bats Bats have a bad reputation, as people unnecessarily fear bats because they believe them to be carriers of disease. But many bats feed off of insects or fruits and will not harm a human. The average brown bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour. Bats also may eat certain rodents, which can cut down on the number of animals burrowing in a yard. Frogs Frogs and toads will prey on insects and make the local insect population more manageable. Toads eat mainly slugs, who feed on the leaves and fruits of many plants. Birds While it is true that some birds can damage crops, many birds are content to feed on insects attracted to the garden, which helps to keep insect numbers in check. Chickadees, for example, will dine on aphid eggs, while larger birds may prey on mice or other rodents or simply scare them out of the garden. Hummingbirds help pollinate plants. Snakes Snakes in a garden can be disconcerting to some people, but snakes are ideal predators who feed on insects and rodents several times their size. Snakes are the right size and shape to invade the burrows of pest animals. Butterflies and bees Butterflies and bees are responsible for pollinating the vast majority of plants. Avoid using pesticides that may diminish butterfly or bee populations. A beehive right next to a garden may not be practical, but don’t make attempts to destroy it. Many animals and insects can be detrimental to the health of a garden. However, several animals are handy to have around and should be welcomed to the landscape.

Few things bring more relief than a swim on a hot day. The cool water of a pool can revive tired muscles and make a sticky body more comfortable. Spending time poolside is one of the more popular warmweather recreational activities. To maintain a safe swimming environment, pool water and equipment needs to be sanitary. This necessitates the use of various chemicals to ensure the water is free from bacteria, algae and other contaminants. Pool chemicals and the natural environment are not always a good mix. However, there are ways to reduce the chances a backyard pool will have a significant negative effect on the environment.

Maintain proper upkeep Chlorine derivatives are the primary sanitizing agent used to keep pool water sparkling clean. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chlorine is one of the most commonly manufactured chemicals in the United States. Chlorine is used in cleaning products to kill harmful bacteria as well as in the sanitation for industrial waste and sewage. In high amounts, chlorine can be poisonous. Burning and irritation can occur when the skin is exposed to liquid chlorine. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, chlorine can be very harmful to any living organism in the soil or water that is contaminated by it. Chlorine in the atmosphere can contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer. The best way to keep chlorine use under control is to carefully stay on top of pool maintenance. Algae blooms or dirty water will require concentrated treatment with chlorine. In contrast, pool water that is maintained will necessitate only marginal levels of chlorine to maintain cleanliness. Routinely test water levels to ensure everything is in order. It can only take a day or two for pool water condition to spiral out of control. Consider newer alternatives Ozone and ultraviolet light are two other methods recognized by the EPA for sanitizing water. Homeowners considering the installation of a new pool can look into these alternative filtration systems. Another option is a saltwater filtration system. Salt naturally contains chlorine, and through a chemical process, salt in the filter will convert into chlorine, eliminating the need to handle dangerous chemicals. Reduce evaporation Depending on the size of a pool, it will require several thousands of gallons of water to fill. Water is an expensive commodity and not one to be wasted. Yet, leaving a pool exposed to the sun will result in water evaporation. A solar cover or pool blanket can help keep water from evaporating. Some estimates say that covering the pool can reduce evaporation by 90 to 95 percent. Not only will a cover keep water in, but it will also slow down the degradation of chlorine and other chemicals sanitizing the water. Chlorine breaks down more quickly in sunlight.


Proper upkeep will help reduce a pool’s environmental impact. Minimize energy costs Running a pool requires increased energy consumption. Filters and cleaning systems can drive up electric bills. Plus, those who heat their pools often find that the venture is quite costly. Energy bills rise dramatically to fuel electrical pool heating systems.

Pool filters should run a certain number of hours each day, usually between 10 and 12 hours. They should not be running constantly unless there is a serious issue that needs cleaning or the system is designed for constant filtration. Energy rates tend to decrease in the evening, so this may be a smarter time to run the filter.

Save money on energy bills Home is where the heart is, where families grow, and generally where the most of our leisure time is spent. Working with green technology for the best insulation will keep your house warm, welcoming, comfortable and cozy -- and will save you money, all at the same time. Insulation advancements are on the horizon at all times, experts say. New soft, expanding spray foam insulation and air barrier material protects homeowners from the harmful outdoor environment and from energy-robbing air leakage. Why are homeowners turning to spray foam insulation? Experts tell us that older insulation types, such as fiberglass, will settle, compact and sag over time, decreasing their insulation properties. Spray foam insulation is energy efficient and it has a high R-value due to its ability to seal and insulate at the same time.

Garden Center

The spray foam solutions are created with water blowing agents and renewable and recycled content, which help reduce greenhouse gas emissions to support a healthier environment. Spray foam insulation can be used in new home construction or additions and insulation upgrades to existing homes (attics, crawlspaces) during remodeling projects. With spray foam insulation you can maintain healthy indoor air while reducing your HVAC equipment needs and saving on energy bills. In addition, homeowners can conserve construction materials without the need for excess sealing and still achieve optimal air-tightness. Spray foam insulation doesn’t pass off gas over time, performs at peak levels for the lifetime of your home, and, because airborne moisture is controlled, the durability of the building remains unthreatened by the growth of mold and mildew.

Find the right outdoor furniture for you The right outdoor furniture can make summer soirees that much more enjoyable. Lounging in a comfortable patio chair is a great way to spend a warm summer evening. But choosing the right outdoor furniture for your patio is about more than finding the most comfortable chair. The following are a few tips for homeowners looking to make the most of their patio space. * Consider the function of your patio. Some homeowners can’t go a weekend without having guests over to entertain, while others prefer their patios to serve as a peaceful retreat from everyone and everything. If you’re among the former, then you will likely want your patio to resemble an outdoor dining area, which means you will need room for a table and multiple chairs. If you want the patio to serve as a retreat, then you likely won’t need a full dining set. Instead, choose a small table and one or two dining chairs, decorating the rest of the patio with a chaise longue or two, which allows you to stretch out and take a nap if you so desire. * Opt for low-maintenance furniture. When choosing outdoor furniture, keep in mind that the patio and the furniture on it is meant to offer a place to unwind and relax. Furniture that must be constantly cleaned or covered up because it can’t brave the elements cuts into your relaxation time. All-weather wicker pieces and metal chairs can brave the elements, and even do so for years and years. * Consider double-sided cushions. When constantly exposed to the sun, the fabric on cushions can fade fast. Though some homeowners combat this by keeping an umbrella open or adding an awning to cover the patio, that’s not always a practical solution. Instead, consider double-sided cushions that can be flipped every so often to reduce fading. * Don’t overlook weight. Heavy outdoor furniture might seem more stable, but such items also are more difficult to move. That’s tricky for homeowners who like to rearrange their patio furniture or those who prefer to move their furnishings into a shed to reduce their exposure to the elements. If you frequently move your outdoor furniture, then opt for items that are lightweight to make all those trips to the garage or shed a little easier.

Thornless roses Several varieties of roses are thornless or have very few thorns. Many plant breeders have developed roses without thorns, which are particularly safe for elderly gardeners, gardeners who have young children or pets or those who simply do not want to worry about thorns on their rose bushes. Smooth Touch roses are a popular and thorn-free breed of rose developed in California in the 1960s by Harvey Davidson. These roses are touted as 95 to 100 percent free of thorns. Some of the Smooth Touch series include, “Ballerina,” “Moonlight” and “Snowflake.” A moderate climber, the “Zephirine Drouhin,” named after the wife of a French rose enthusiast, is another popular thorn-free breed of rose. Several multiflora ramblers that descended from Asian rose species also are free of thorns. “Ghislaine de Feligonde,” “Veilchenblau,” “Goldfinch,” and “Ice Tea” are others that feature thorn-free canes and stems.

Landscape fabrics Landscape fabrics are used to prevent weed growth while still allowing air, oxygen and water to flow to and from the soil. Landscape fabrics are a chemical-free way to prevent weed growth, endearing them to eco-friendly homeowners. Landscape fabrics, once laid, also are a far less laborintensive method to prevent weed growth.

Things to know before building a deck


Flats Potted Hanging Baskets Vegetable Plants

Knitz Greenhouse

A deck makes a great addition to many homes, but homeowners should learn as much as possible about decks and what goes into building them before making any decking decisions.

in when digging. * The deck can have multiple levels. Though many people associate decks with one level, it’s possible to have a multi-level deck if you simply don’t have enough room to build a deck that will be big enough to meet all of your needs. A multi-level deck can break up those long flights of stairs while ensuring you will always have somewhere to go to escape the sun on a hot day. * You will want to protect the deck. Decks are a costly investment, and you will want to protect that investment. If you’re building a wood deck, keep in mind the sun will beat down on the deck for most of the year. You can protect the deck by painting it. Paint provides sunscreen for the deck, stopping the sun from breaking down the material. Once you’ve finished painting, apply sealant, whether it’s oil- or water-based. * Don’t forget fasteners. Fasteners will hide the screws for aesthetic appeal. But not all woods and fasteners are the right fit, as certain woods are only compatible with certain fasteners. Find out which fasteners make the right fit ahead of time. Because fasteners conceal the screws, they also make it possible to go barefoot on the deck.

Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau Housing Survey indicate that homeowners annually spend billions of dollars improving outdoor living areas. One of the most popular ways to do just that is to add a deck to a home. Decks are beneficial in many ways. Grillmasters love decks because they make the perfect place to set up a grill and a table and cook for family and friends. Those who simply love being outdoors find decks the perfect place to relax and soak up some sun or idle away the evening hours. But homeowners who want to build a deck should know a few things before that process begins. * Permits are necessary. Unless the deck is going to be especially small, you will likely need a permit to build it. Before buying any materials or consulting any contractors, make certain you know which permits you need and how to get them. If the proper permits are not secured before the project begins, you might have to tear down the whole project and start all over again. * Decks don’t have to go on the back of the house. If the back of your house sits in the blazing sun all day, then it’s probably best to build the deck elsewhere, and that’s perfectly alright. So long as the property and permits allow, decks can be built on the side of a home as well, and putting a deck on the side might be more comfortable. * Decks don’t have to be made of wood. It’s easy to assume all decks are made of plain wood. However, decks can be made out of a wide variety of materials, natural or synthetic. Pressure treated wood is perhaps the most popular material for decking because it’s not very expensive. But manmade materials that are a mixture of recycled plastic and wood bits or sawdust are also popular because they require no maintenance. But homeowners should know that manmade materials can get hot in the sun, which will require those enjoying the deck to wear shoes. * Expect to do some digging. If you’re going to build your own deck, expect to do some serious digging. Local building codes will dictate how deep you will need to dig for the pier footings, which support the deck’s weight. Just how deep you’ll dig depends on your climate’s specific frost line, but it’s safe to assume you’ll get a workout

How to spruce up outdoor space Beautiful nights make for great opportunities to invite some friends over for a starry soiree under the nighttime sky. Unlike house parties at which guests will be spending most of their time indoors and in various rooms throughout the house, outdoor parties are often limited to smaller areas, such as patios. That can make things much less taxing on hosts, who won’t have much prep work to do to get an outdoor hosting area ready for guests. But even an impromptu party requires planning and a little elbow grease before guests arrive. The following are a few areas to address before guests arrive for your next outdoor get-together. * Clear the walkways and patio of debris. The walkways and patio may not need too much attention, but give them a once-over with a broom to clear any debris. When clearing the patio of debris, move all furniture, making sure to sweep up any debris, including food, that might have fallen beneath tables and chairs since your most recent party. If the patio is especially dirty, consider power washing it to remove stubborn stains that can rob the area of its aesthetic appeal. * Clean the furniture. Whether it’s been months since your last party on the patio or just a few days, the furniture must be cleaned. Unless items have been stored in a garage or shed, patio furnishings are exposed to the elements, and that means dirt, soil, soot or pollen may have accumulated on the furniture. Wipe down all cushions, using a mild detergent when necessary. Cushions may need some time to dry, so make this one of your first tasks, and leave cushions out in the sun so they dry more quickly. Once the cushions have been cleaned, wipe down the furniture with a wet towel to clear them of any dirt or debris. * Clean and inspect the grill. The

Tips for repairing dead grass A patch of dead grass on an otherwise lush lawn can be a frustrating eyesore for homeowners. Whether lawn care is your passion or just something you do to maintain the value of your home, dead grass can be exasperating. But as unsightly as dead grass can be, addressing it and restoring the dead patches can be somewhat simple. Before you can restore grass, however, you must first identify the source of the problem. Grass often dies because of urine damage, which is typically characterized by a dead spot surrounded by otherwise green grass. Grub infestation might be at fault when dead grass appears, and such an infestation often produces patches of light brown grass that are scattered throughout the lawn. It’s also possible that dead grass is a result of human error. If your lawn was over-fertilized, then patches of gray-green grass may appear. Fungal disease is another common culprit behind dead grass, and such disease can manifest itself in different ways. Once you have identified why the grass is dead, then you can begin to treat your lawn.

Patios, including furniture and walkways, should be cleaned and cleared of debris before hosting your next party. grill is a go-to accessory when hosting an outdoor party, so give the grill a thorough cleaning before the first guests arrive. Nothing brings a party to a halt like hunger, and guests may begin to grow antsy if they are not served food in a reasonable amount of time. If you are using a propane grill, check to make sure the tanks are full as you clean the grill. Running out of propane is a summer soiree faux pas, so you might want to keep an extra tank handy just to be safe. * Clear the entryway to your home. Your guests will likely be using the same entryway over and over again during the party, so focus on cleaning this entryway so guests don’t trip or have to jump over toys on their way to an indoor restroom. Once the entryway has been cleared of potential tripping hazards, make sure the indoor path to the restroom is clear as well.

Urine damage Urine damage is often limited to a particular area of the grass where your family pet routinely relieves itself. Once a particular patch of grass has worn down, the pet may move on to another spot. But if you quickly notice a dead spot due to urine damage, you can train the animal to urinate elsewhere, limiting the damage it causes. When repairing the grass, dig a hole that’s roughly four inches deep and fill it with fresh soil until it’s level with the soil surrounding the dead patch. Then you can sprinkle seed on top of the freshly laid soil and water the spot. Grass should grow in and stay green so long as you prevent fur-

ther urine damage. Insect damage Addressing dead spots caused by insect damage can be a little more complicated, and some homeowners may prefer to hire a professional. If you want to handle the problem on your own, apply pesticide to the affected areas so the insects behind the problem are killed. Once the insects are no more, cut the grass, raking the affected area to remove the dead grass and any additional debris. Scatter grass seed over the affected areas and then apply an appropriate fertilizer and water immediately. Professionals may know just the right fertilizer for your lawn, so even if you want to go it alone, visit a local lawn care center to ask for advice about addressing your particular problem. Fertilizer damage Fertilizer damage can also prove difficult to address, as applying fresh seeds too soon can kill any freshly growing seedlings. So grass that has been damaged by over-fertilization must first be allowed to fully die. Once that has happened, the grass can be cut and any remaining debris or dead grass can be removed. Seed can then be scattered, and you can even add some additional soil before laying down an appropriate amount of fertilizer and watering the lawn immediately. If you don’t trust yourself to use fertilizer correctly, then hire a professional to do the job for you. This will cost a little more, but you likely won’t wake up to more dead patches of grass down the road. Dead grass can be unsightly and turn an otherwise lush lawn into a patchy eyesore. But addressing dead grass can be easy and can quickly restore a lawn to its green grandeur.

“Down on the Farm” chosen as theme for Homecoming The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce and Genoa Merchants Association are once again busy planning this year’s annual Homecoming Celebration, which will be held Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31. The goal of the festival – which has been a tradition for more than 60 years – is to provide good, old fashioned family fun and to promote community spirit and patriotism. This year’s theme is “Down on the Farm.” This year, Homecoming festivities will be held in Veterans Memorial Park, which offers room for more rides, more food, more vendors, and more fun, organizers said. The celebration will kick off Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. with the annual parade, which will include high school bands, floats and area organizations. Registration will begin at 5p.m. at 13th and West streets (Brunner Complex). Registration for the parade is open through Monday, May 26. Any entries signed up after the deadline will be placed at the end of the parade. Floats and entries are encouraged to have an agricultural focus, in keeping with the Homecoming theme. For more information, contact Neil Ammons, parade chairman at 419-461-0584 or After the parade, the amusement rides will be running and there will be Bingo and Big 6. Also, there will be refreshments and live music by 56 Daze under the enlarged Beer Tent.

Stopher Family fundraiser A spaghetti dinner fundraiser to benefit the Stopher family will be held Saturday, May 31 from 6 p.m.-midnight at the Harbor View Yacht Club, 2180 Autokee St., Oregon. Scott Stopher, a loving husband, fa-

Just a few weeks later, he suffered from an extreme loss of hearing that resulted in the diagnosis of terminal leptomeningeal cancer (brain cancer), along with cancer in his spine and ribs. Organizers are hoping the fundraiser will help ease the burden of medical expenses for Stopher and his family. The requested donation for the fundraiser is $7 for adults and $5 for children (kids under 3 eat free). The event will also include a silent auction, 50/50 raffles and a bake sale.

Oregon-Northwood Rotary Club hosts The Ability Center By Christopher Selmek Press Contributing Writer Members of The Ability Center visited the Oregon-Northwood Rotary Club, May 14 to explain how they help disabled members of the community receive the information and support they need to live independently. Tim Harrington, director of The Ability Center, began by telling the story of Alva Bunker, a boy born in 1901 with no hands or legs. Members of the Toledo Rotary Club used to watch him rolling up and down the street on his skateboard, and when he was 16, the club provided him with prosthetic legs and sent him to school. “Alva was the original inspiration for The Ability Center, which was started in 1920 by Toledo Rotary,” said Harrington.

“Over the years that followed, the Rotary Club lost touch with Alva, but in 2011, we found a marked grave at Willow Cemetery in Oregon, and the Rotary Club has now built a marker there explaining Alva’s story.” Currently, The Ability Center builds 100 ramps every year with the help of volunteer carpenters, maintains close relationships with hospice agencies, and fields approximately 3,000 calls a week on subjects ranging from handicapped parking to funeral arrangements. “In the last 10 years, The Ability Center moved 750 people from nursing homes back into their community,” he continued. “It’s a major initiative that involves walking into people’s room and asking them if they had every thought about leaving this place.” Dennis Mussery, The Ability Center’s Community Connections Coordinator, explained that disabled


before my time,” he said. “I’ve been aware of the Rotarians ever since I was 2 years old, and when I went to Feilbach School for the Disabled, I know Rotarians were a major contributor to allow me to get my education.” Tori Thompson, community outreach coordinator, explained that as a Center for Independent Living, The Ability Center provides a wealth of information, advocacy, independent living skills training and peer support for disabled individuals throughout the community. They are also one of few organizations across the county to provide assistance dogs at a nominal fee. “Those perception issues that Dennis was talking about are not real barriers,” she said. “If they have the life skills and support, these people can do whatever they want.” For more information about The Ability Center, visit

Nonna Ellen McEwen was born to Vern & Audra McEwen in Jerry City, Ohio. She married Raymond F. Johnson on June 28, 1944. They had two children, Linda Kay and Donald Ray. Mrs. Johnson was a beauty salon owner and operator for more than 30 years in northern Ohio. She and her husband enjoyed travel and wintered in Florida after retiring. Both Raymond and Donald preceded Nonna in passing. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Kay (Dean) Gaschler, Kissimmee, Florida, daughter-in-law, Mary Kay Johnson, Walbridge, Ohio, seven grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

people face many perception issues, which the public needs to be educated about. As a former girls’ basketball coach at Ottawa Hills High School, Mussery said there were many people who weren’t sure he could be an effective coach because he had polio and uses a wheelchair. “It might be the first thing they saw, but it was the last thing they remembered,” he said, remembering how the players and parents quickly accepted his talents. “Now I work for The Ability Center and I try to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves, and be a role model.” Mussery also expressed appreciation for the Oregon-Northwood Rotary Club’s “Paint Away Polio” event held last month. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation matched the club’s donation two to one, allowing them to donate almost $5,000 to the “End Polio Now” initiative. “Rotarians and polio go way back –

Happy 89th Birthday GG!


Cilantro has a variety of uses By J.K. DePeal Garden Writer May is here at last and some serious gardening can begin. It has been a chilly, wet spring so far and this month has come with a very welcome burst of fresh green and colorful blooms on trees, shrubs, and spring flowers. These bright colors are a treat to the senses after the gloomy gray of a long winter. Mid-May is usually the safe planting period for Northwest Ohio, but it is always a good idea to check local weather conditions and temperature forecasts before setting out tender plants. With the very damp conditions we are having this year, be careful about too much walking on the soil in your beds and gardens as this will compact the soil, which reduces its oxygen content. The roots of the transplants and seeds you will be putting into your beds will need this oxygen to help them get off to a good growing start. If you plan to grow herbs this year, you may want to try an easy-to-grow variety that can be used in cooking a variety of dishes. Cilantro adds a delicious citrus-like parsley flavor to foods and has become a very popular kitchen herb. Cilantro can be grown from seed in the garden and it prefers a moist, well-drained location that will receive at least six hours of sun per day. This herb grows quickly and you can usually begin to harvest the leaves in about three to four weeks. When the plant is 2 inches tall, apply a liquid fertilizer and, if you want a harvest of the herb all season, continue to plant more seeds every two to three weeks until late summer. To encourage more leaf growth, pinch back the plants about 1 inch. Do not allow the plants to flower or produce seed pods as this will cause the leaves to become bitter. When you harvest cilantro leaves, try to use the upper, fine leaves rather than the lower, ferny ones. Cilantro should be used fresh and, if you have a delay from harvesting to use, you can place the cilantro in a glass of cold water for a day or two. It can also be kept fresh by washing it and wrapping the sprigs in paper towels. Keep these in the refrigerator and it will retain its flavor for about a week. Dried cilantro tends to lose its flavor but, by raising it yourself, you can have plenty to use through the growing season. Cilantro is delicious in salsas and salads. It is good with vegetables, especially corn and green beans. It can be used to flavor meat dishes and is a staple for cooking Mexican, Middle Eastern and Asian foods. A favorite use for cilantro in our home is in a very healthy, low-calorie, and very tasty dip or sandwich spread that is so easy to make and a perfect cool dish for the warm weather soon to come. The ingredients are simple and easy to find, you may want to try it. Cilantro/Avocado/Bean Dip: 1 can Garbanzo beans (chick peas). Drain off liquid in can. 1 avocado ¼ cup fresh cilantro, copped ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper ¼ c. chopped red onion Salt to taste Blend the beans and avocado in a blender or mash with a fork to chunky consistency. Mix in the chopped onion, cilantro, pepper, and salt. Store in refrigerator in covered container. Use it as a dip, sandwich spread on flatbread, tortilla wraps, etc. Along with herbs, you may want to grow some of your own vegetables this summer. It is a great way to save money and have fresh, healthy produce for your family’s meals. If you have never grown vegetables before, or it has been a while since you have gardened, you may want to start out with some very easy-to-grow varieties. Try some cherry tomatoes, green beans, radishes, lettuces, and cucumbers. Whether you have a small plot, a large garden space, or perhaps some containers; any or all of these varieties will provide a harvest of good taste. If you have garden questions or tips for other gardeners, email dpl3@accesstoledo. com.

eek: How Do You Define Success?

The personal success business is a significant part of our economy, with Americans spending literally billions of dollars every year in the hopes of figuring out how to be personally (and financially) successful. Much of this enterprise is materialism at its worst, with clever hucksters convincing hopeful, often greedy, or unwary marks to part with their hard-earned money in the hopes of getting rich. And while it certainly isn't fair to paint all of these success gurus with the same brush, it is worth asking what the point of all this success is about in the first place. How do the people selling success define it?

Do they define success by nothing more than material prosperity? If so, they are defining it very narrowly, and are at odds with God's message of success. If success is nothing more than material prosperity, then Jesus and the prophets would have to be judged abject failures. On the other hand, if they define success as personal growth, meeting our individual goals, and living in harmony with God and our fellowman, then this is probably something worth attaining. You cannot serve both God and money. N.I.V Matthew 6:24
