Dedication ceremony Reverend Mark Herzog of St. Ignatius Church in Oregon presents a document found in the time capsule which was recently uncovered when the church was razed. The letter was written in Latin by the original leaders of the church. Reverend Herzog had the letter translated and read it aloud to the church members this past Sunday during the dedication ceremony for a new church. The original letter will be put back into the time capsule and placed inside the new cornerstone. (Press photo by Stephanie Szozda)

East Toledo garden featured

Sustainable farm tour begins in June By Larry Limpf News Editor Agricultural facilities in Northwest Ohio, including one in East Toledo, will be featured in the 2013 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. On June 15, Graham Farms in Grand Rapids will be on the tour. The farm specializes in pasture-raised meat, which is sold under the label Omega Meats. Grower Lindsay Graham raises grassfed cattle, pastured chickens and turkey, and pastured breed hogs on 16 acres using rotational grazing practices. Omega Meat products are sold in restaurants and natural food stores as well as through a buyer’s club and on-farm sales. The urban community garden tour will include a visit Aug. 17 at Magyar Garden in East Toledo. Master gardener Karen Wood will conduct the tour of the York Street garden that has been tended by 15 to 30 families for more than 60 years. In 2011, more than 200 pounds of honey were harvested from the garden’s five beehives.

Consumer demand for fresh, locally produced food and farm products continues to grow...

Is a transitional housing program for men in Ottawa County about to become a reality in the near future? Two forums scheduled for next week will explain “The Lighthouse” project’s need and discuss opportunities. The first meeting is May 20 at the Genoa Library and the second is May 22 at the Ida Rupp Library in Port Clinton. Both sessions start at 7 p.m. The type of housing to assist men with drug and alcohol dependencies is badly needed locally say the project coordinators, Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters and members of the 2013 class of Leadership Ottawa County. It would provide a clean and sober living environment for men just out of jail or prison, the judge said. They would gain emotional and financial support while learning skills to put them on the road to self-sufficiency. “When Judge Winters told us some of the statistics associated with that group of people, we were floored,” said Mary Winters, a Leadership Ottawa County member leading the project. According to the judge, 70 percent of people involved in criminal cases in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court who take the mandatory drug tests fail. The drugs used range from opiates to pain killers. “And you would think the people involved in drug trafficking would be the ones who failed the most,” Judge Winters said. Sadly, he added, “The highest rate is the men involved in child support cases.” Leadership Ottawa County is an organization that brings together business and community members in a nine-month course to learn about the county as well as undertake projects that will improve the communities. One of the program’s success stories is the creation of Joyful Connections, a supervised visitation site for children and their parents at the Riverview complex near Oak

A monarch butterfly way-station was added in 2012 and the facility is planning to join the Cornell University urban bird study project. An organic and sustainable agriculture field day will be held Sept. 5 at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation in Bowling Green Co-sponsored by the Organic Food and Farming Education Research (OFFER) program, the tour will include a visit to the Organic Valley corn variety plot. Informa-

tion will also be presented on organic grain crops, pest scouting and organic controls, zeolite soil research and other OFFER projects. Zeolite has the ability to release beneficial elements while capturing and binding others, often less desirable, materials. Three operations in Fulton County will be featured June 21, focusing on production and management changes they’ve made in recent years to become more economically viable. The tour will start at Kinsman Farm, a family-operated row crop farm that has modified its methods to include organic produce, community supported agriculture subscriptions, and high-tunnel greenhouse production. From there the tour will continue to Turkeyfoot Creek Creamery operated by Del and Linda Burkholder. Participants will see how fresh, ripened and aged cheeses are made from the farm’s goats. The farm was started in 2012. The tour will then stop at Knotty Vines Farm and Winery operated by Steve and Julie Nofziger, who started a “retirement project” that’s grown into a viable enterprise on

Sustainable Farming Continued from front page just three acres. The winery opened for retail business earlier this year. “Consumer demand for fresh, locally produced food and farm products continues to grow, along with the desire to understand how food gets from the field to the dinner table. Farmers are opening their barn doors this summer to show how sustainably produced food is grown,” said Lauren Ketcham, OEFFA’s communications coordinator. “The tours are also designed to help farmers and gardeners learn from each other so they can improve their production and marketing techniques and grow their operations.” In all, 17 tours and workshops are being sponsored by OEFFA and will be held between June and November. The tour and workshop series are also sponsored by the Coalition of Ohio Land Trusts and the Ohio State University Sustainable Agriculture Team.

Housing for ex-cons proposed for Ottawa County Continued from front page Harbor. The current group agreed to take on the role of creating a steering committee for the transitional housing program and overseeing the forums. The 15-member committee consists of LOC members, social service staff, court personnel and local counseling agencies. “What we are doing is trying to create awareness for the problem and find ways to get this off the ground,” Mary Winters said. This really has a widespread effect on the community, she added. Winters says she has become so passionate about the project she plans to stay on beyond her time devoted to Leadership Ottawa County program. There are six LOC members on the steering committee. Generally, the commitment ends shortly after the program ends. The Class of 2013 graduated May 15. But Winters said many of those in-

volved may stay on. “We all feel we just can’t leave. We need to get this project going,” she explained. Others in the social services realm agree that this type of housing is necessary here. “The single man is the most underserved community in Ottawa County,” says Linda Hartlaub, executive director of Ottawa County Transitional Housing. “There’s help out there for families and single moms with children. But if you are a single man, there’s not really anything available at most levels.” And when Hartlaub gets those calls for help there is very little she can do but refer them to a couple of social service agencies. Or if, they are veterans, they might find assistance through the Ottawa County Veterans Service, she said. OCTH oversees Ruthann’s House, a transitional housing program for women and their children. The home can serve six women at a time. But many times children accompany those fleeing bad situation. “At one time we had six women and

up to 15 children staying here,” Hartlaub said. Ruthann’s House opened in 1994. The home was named after Ruthann Belknap, formerly of Port Clinton, who was instrumental in bringing the housing program to Ottawa County. Ruthann’s House survives on an annual $250,000 budget, which includes the mortgage payment, provided by state and federal entities as well as United Way. Women can live at the home up to two years while undergoing counseling, looking for a job and participating in a series of programs to gain confidence and to get them back on their feet. Judge Winters hopes the transitional housing for men program doesn’t follow the regular funding path. That is, he wants to keep away from state and federal help as well as the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation for assistance if possible. “I’d like to see this all done locally, maybe with the help of business and industry,” the judge said.

“Shots fired”

Click It or Ticket

Genoa teachers undergo safety training By Cynthia L Jacoby Special to The Press Shots rang out in the halls of Genoa schools Monday but teachers didn’t panic. They knew it was going to happen beforehand. Clay Township Police Department members fired several rounds of blanks during a 30-minute session at an in-service day at the high school, middle school and elementary buildings. The “shots fired training” is part of ongoing preparation for the new ALICE school emergency response system enacted this past school year at Genoa. ALICE, which stands for Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate, operates on the premise it’s better to run than to lock doors and hide. Teachers, secretaries and custodians with maps of firing sites listened from their rooms and other parts of the building. They scrutinized what they could and could not hear from the various firing points and later talked about how to react. “The teachers came back together and we had a chance to debrief. The training spurred a lot of conversation. Many of them had never heard a gun fire within a

building,” said Cari Buehler, Genoa High School’s assistant principal. “For me, the blank fired by the auditorium sounded just like the one fired by the entrance of the middle school.” And though the event was staged, the pretend gunfire sent some blood pressure counts soaring among the 130 or so staffers involved. “I was really surprised how nervous I was -- just knowing it was coming,” Buehler said. “I could feel my heart pumping.” “Before ALICE I would have been in panic, maybe even locking the door or hiding under a desk,” Buehler said. “But with ALICE, it was reassuring that we had a plan in place.” It also encourages staff and children to distract or confuse shooters in the effort to flee the building. Its controversial nature has triggered a lot of debate among educators, law enforcement officers and parents in the wake of school shootings nationwide. Still, Genoa school administrators remain steadfast in the choice to use the program for students in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade school settings. Genoa was the first Ottawa County school district to adopt

the program and undergo student training in all grade levels this school year. Clay Township Police Chief Terry Mitchell pitched the program last year. The chief, who has conducted several public meetings to keep parents and community members informed, is adamant that ALICE is the right choice for local school safety. He was not available for comment Tuesday. However, in December, Mitchell stood before a crowd in the high school auditorium and noted that the only written school building procedure in place beforehand in response to gun fire amounted to a call to drop to the floor, close your eyes and cover your head. “You might as well as pray,” he warned the crowd then. Mitchell and his officers also stood lookout during the Monday training to make sure unknowing visitors didn’t wander into the buildings. “No visitors or students ever came near the building,” Buehler assured. Students were never involved in any part of the shots fired training. And will they be in the future? “I can honestly say I don’t ever see that happening,” Buehler said.

The 2013 Click It or Ticket National Seat Belt Campaign will be conducted May 20 through June 2. The annual campaign is intended to bring awareness to all drivers and passengers that seat belts save lives. “Motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in a rollover crash if they are buckled up,” said Gwen Neundorfer, Traffic Safety Program Coordinator. “The worst possible scenario is to be thrown from your vehicle because you weren’t wearing your seat belt. Wearing your seat belt is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash.” In 2012 in Lucas County, there were 34 fatal crashes with 35 fatalities. In the 20 fatal crashes where seat belts were available (excludes pedestrian, motorcycle and bicycle fatalities), only three people were buckled up at the time of their crash. Seat belt surveys were conducted by retired Highway Patrol Troopers in April, June and September 2012. The average of these three surveys at the six sites within Lucas County show seat belt usage at these locations to be as follows: • I-75 at Suder Avenue – 64.3 percent; • I-280 at Navarre Avenue – 68.9 percent; • Airport Highway at Bronx Drive – 71.3 percent; • West Central Avenue at N. McCord Road – 79.2 percent; • Birchwood Avenue at Schneider Road – 74.4 percent; • Spring Meadows Drive at Airport Highway – 85.4 percent. “Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket activities that will take place around the clock. If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled anytime or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket — not a warning. No excuses and no exceptions,” said Det. Mark Woodruff, of the Lucas County Sheriff’s Office and coordinator of the Lucas County OVI Task Force.

Ross indicted for shooting his wife By Larry Limpf News Editor The Ottawa County Grand Jury has indicted Randall J. Ross for the March 27 shooting death of his estranged wife, Amy. According to Mark Mulligan, county prosecutor, Ross was indicted on seven counts, including murder, aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, and kidnapping. Firearm specifications are included in the indictment. All of the charges are first degree felonies. The shooting occurred at the N. Leutz Road home of Andrea Swope, Amy’s sister, where she had been staying. She was found in an upstairs bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. Swope called the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department shortly before noon to report the shooting and told dispatchers Randall had then shot himself and was still at the residence. Carroll Township Police Chief Jody Hatfield was the first responding officer to arrive at the scene and encountered Ross in the driveway. He was treated at the scene for two head wounds by the township fire department before being taken by Life Flight to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. He was released May 8 from the hospital. When he was released, Sheriff Steve Levorchick said he would be held in a correctional facility capable of providing suitable medical care. Levorchick said Ross forced his way into the house and chased Amy upstairs. The victim and Ross had lived on County Road 265, Fremont, before she moved in with her sister. Records in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court indicate she filed a divorce complaint last year, including a motion for a mutual restraining order, but then filed a dismissal notice less that a month later. Swope’s daughter was at home at the time of the shooting, according to Sheriff Levorchick. Swope and her father and brother filed a civil lawsuit in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court last month against Ross. Indictments returned The grand jury also indicted Dennis Saldusky, Fostoria, on two counts of election falsification – both fifth degree felonies – for allegedly voting in Ottawa County when it wasn’t his residence. Derek Thayer, whose last known address is in the Bono area, was charged with one count of failure to appear after reportedly not attending a hearing on an unrelated indictment earlier this month.

Oregon seeks funding to preserve bike paths By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon will submit an application to the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) for funding from the Transportation Alternatives Program for the Oregon bikeway preservation project. The city is requesting $192,000 for the $240,000 project. The local share is $48,000. The project will preserve over four miles of bike path and two miles of bike lanes that are part of the city’s main bikeway system, which connects Maumee Bay State Park to Pearson Metropark, provides direct pedestrian and bike access to the city’s municipal and recreational complex, the James “Wes” Hancock Senior Center, the South Shore Veterans Park, the James A. Haley Boardwalk, Clay High School, Fassett Middle School and Starr Elemen-

tary School. The project consists of rehabilitating and preserving the existing asphalt pavement, including 4.5 miles of separated bike paths and approximately two miles of bike lanes along Starr Avenue. Various pavement rehabilitation techniques will be used to improve and preserve the existing asphalt surface to help prevent the need for more costly major rehabilitation in the future. “There’s a new round for this money through ODOT and TMACOG,” said Public Service Director Paul Roman at a recent council meeting. “Our project is really just taking the Oregon bikeway and preserving it.” The funding, he added, may not be available until 2018-19. Plans call for a proposed 1” fine graded polymer asphalt concrete overlay, minor pavement base repairs, installation of ADA detectable warning devices at roadway crossings, pavement markings and signage

upgrades for the Bay Shore Road Bikeway, Phases I and II; the Senior Center Bikeway, Phases I and II, and the Stadium Road Bikeway Phase I. The Municipal Complex Connector Bikeway, Phases I and II, and the Pearson Park Connector Bikeway, will get an application of asphalt rejuvenating agent and pavement markings, while the Starr Avenue bike lanes will get pavement base failure repairs and pavement markings. “I think it’s going to be scored well. But we’re competing against much larger projects as well,” Roman said of the city’s chanCes of getting funding. The Oregon bikeway system was built in phases using various grant sources, starting with the Starr Avenue bike lanes in 1990. The Stadium Road Bikeway, Phase II, which is currently under construction, will complete a major regional bikeway in Oregon that has been a goal of the city since 1984 when TMACOG prepared the original Oregon Bikeway plan.

3 interviewed for Walbridge council

Court Log

By Larry Limpf News Editor Walbridge Village Council is one step closer to filling a vacant seat. The personnel and human resources committee of village council scheduled a meeting for May 17 to interview three persons interested in the seat vacated by Nathan Eikost, who resigned on April 23. A special meeting of village council may be held May 21 to appoint one of the three to the seat but as of Thursday a meeting hadn’t been scheduled, said Pam Klotz, council clerk. Council had planned to hold a special meeting immediately after the committee meeting to make the appointment but had to postpone that meeting due to Ken Gilsdorf having a scheduling conflict, she said. Eikost resigned his seat after being sworn in as a police officer in the City of Rossford. Council has 30 days from Eikost’s resignation on April 23 to appoint someone to the vacant seat or Mayor Ed Kolanko will have the responsibility for the appointment. Eikost was elected to village council in November 2011 and was most recently chairman of the business and economic development committee. He was elected to the Lake school board in November 2007. During its regular meeting Wednesday, council approved an ordinance authorizing Mayor Kolanko to enter into an agreement with Signature Associates to market village-owned properties. The listing agreement will be in effect for one year. The village owns acreage on E. Broadway that is considered well suited for economic development.

Town hall meeting set By Larry Limpf News Editor The Wood County commissioners will hold a town hall meeting May 21 at the Lake Township administration building, 27975 Cummings Rd. The meeting will start at 4:45 p.m. The commissioners have been scheduling public forum style meetings throughout the county, offering residents a chance to submit comments or questions to the commissioners. The township board of trustees will hold its regular meeting at 5:30 p.m. Joint meeting planned Richard Welling, a trustee, said the trustees and village councils of Walbridge and Millbury may hold a combined meeting this summer. Welling said he’s talked with Fred Sloyer, a member of Walbridge council, about a joint meeting to discuss issues such as sharing services and seeking grants to fund multi-jurisdictional projects. “We seem to be more successful with multi-jurisdictional grants,” he said. In March, the trustees agreed to a request by Millbury Mayor Mike Timmons to jointly seek grant funding to help pay for a bike trail linking parks in their jurisdictions. Timmons said the village may apply for funding through the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments in April 2014. “A joint project is the way to go,” he said, referring to the trend in grant funding to reward jurisdictions that combine their efforts. Welling said he’ll try to schedule a combined meeting in July. Lake township, cities of Northwood and Rossford and villages of Millbury and Walbridge are already sharing a grant from the state’s Local Government Innovation Fund to study the feasibility of forming a regional emergency dispatching center. Rossford and Walbridge now contract with Lake Township for 24-hour 9-1-1 dispatch service. Millbury contracts with the township for police service. A report on the study is due by next month, according to Mark Hummer, township police chief.

Hunting rules detailed

MAY 20, 2013


The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) encourages hunters to educate themselves about Ohio’s new game tagging and checking procedure for the 2013-2014 hunting seasons. These changes provide a more consistent tagging process between exempt landowners and those using a permit. The new game check process applies to spring turkey, fall turkey and white-tailed deer hunting seasons. A new feature this year is that hunters will need to make their own game tag to attach to the turkey or deer. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of kill. The ODNR Division of Wildlife has a blank game tag available at, which is suitable for the tagging and checking process. Follow these steps when tagging wildlife during the upcoming spring hunting seasons: • Protect permits and game tags from the elements by placing them in a plastic bag or protective pouch before hunting. • Landowners and permit holders must complete a game tag immediately upon harvest and prior to moving the animal. The game tag must include the hunter’s full name, date, time and county of kill. Hunters need to make their own tag from any material they choose, and write legibly with an ink pen or permanent marker. • Attach the game tag to the animal immediately upon harvest and prior to moving it. • Permit holders must complete the spring turkey permit with the date, time and county of kill. Those exempt from purchasing a permit can ignore this step. • Complete the automated game check process and receive an 18-digit confirmation number. Permit holders must record this number on the permit. • The 18-digit confirmation number must also be attached to the animal. Hunters may also choose to write the number on the game tag. All hunters must report their turkey harvest using the automated game check system. Hunters have three options to complete the game check: online at wildohio. com or; by telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (877-824-4864) and at all license agents. A list of agents can be found at Game-check transactions will be available online and by telephone seven days a week including holidays. License agents’ locations will be available for turkey checkin during normal business hours. Hunters can call the license agent for specific hours of operation. All turkeys must be checked in by 11:30 p.m. the day of the kill. Landowners exempt from purchasing a turkey permit, and any other person not required to purchase a turkey permit, cannot use the phone-in option. More information, including a pamphlet explaining the process, is available at Hunters with questions can also call 800-WILDLIFE (800-945-3543).

Northwood sergeant defends the use of traffic cameras


Anybody who knows me knows I’m about one of the most ethical guys you’ll meet and we’re sending tickets out for legitimate reasons. “Does it generate money for the city? Of course it does. What does Northwood do with that revenue? In some cities they don’t have a plan as to what to use that money for. In Northwood, we decided to use that money for public safety. A lot of people who had complaints about the system didn’t like the concept of it — not the running of the operations. And some people question the Constitutionality of it,� Hubaker said. In 2003, the city had about 370 crashes per year, he said. The city had to add to

Who’s getting rich? Hubaker, a former undercover drug enforcement policeman and former school resource officer, said his educational background is in public safety. He admits to being one of those who first brought the idea of traffic cameras to the city’s attention and began investigating its use in 2003. Toledo was the first city in the state to install the cameras, Northwood was third. He responded to an argument that the cameras’ purpose is only to bring revenue to the city by explaining that income generated was put back into public safety, such as new equipment, road safety improvements, and a new salt dome.

its police workforce just to handle the accidents. Hubaker said Northwood now has 17 police officers, when its “authorized strength� is 21, and removing the cameras would put more stress on the police force. “For a town of 5,500, investigating one traffic accident per day each year — that’s outrageous,� Hubaker said. “I can’t tell you how many police officers across the country I’ve talked to about it — asking why did your town put this in and what has it done for your town from a public safety perspective? It was all positive — traffic crashes were down.� Within 30 days after the camera’s installation in 2005, 3,500 warning letters were sent to potential violators for one intersection — Lemoyne and Woodville roads. At the Wales-Oregon intersection, he said there were a high number of college students who were violating the `right turn on red’ law. Most were turning on red, but they weren’t stopping first. So, the city used camera revenue to construct a continuous right turn lane, he said. “If we were in it for the revenue, we’d just have kept clicking and clicking and clicking,� Hubaker said. “Anybody who knows me knows I’m about one of the most ethical guys you’ll meet and we’re sending tickets out for legitimate reasons. So, we’ve done good things with this. It’s not like,

‘Hey, I got a raise because of photo enforcement.’� He said the city is now issuing 175 to 200 citations a month for two intersections, down from 3,500 at just one intersection eight years ago. At Wales, crashes have gone from 30 crashes a month to nine. Crashes throughout the city dropped from 375 to 200 per year, a 45 percent decline. Hubaker said few violators are from Northwood or out of state. Most are from Toledo or local communities like Genoa or Oak Harbor. “Trust me, I’ve heard it all,� Hubaker said. “I’ve had 50 voice mails a day from people calling or complaining about it. Driving is 90 percent habit, and many people are just in the habit of speeding. Accidents are the leading cause of death for ages 18 to 24 with traffic accidents contributing quite a bit to that statistic. And of fatal accidents, speeding is the leading cause of that.� Hubaker suggests that naysayers should talk to school crossing guards at Woodville and Lemoyne. When school is in session, there are more violations. To warn motorists, the city used camera revenue to install a digital speed trailer that lets drivers know their speed. “Are these things we have to do? No,� said Hubaker.. “We have gone a step further to tell them, ‘Hey, this is coming.’�

City Council tables vote on traffic cameras By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Northwood City Council on May 9 tabled a vote on whether to renew a contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., to continue operating traffic cameras at two intersections. Council members have already taken positions at recent meetings on the cameras, with four firmly against renewing the contract, and three in favor. The proposed ordinance to renew the contract has had two readings before council. The third reading and a final vote from council was expected at the May 9 meeting, but Councilman Mike Myers, a supporter of the cameras, was not in attendance. Council President Connie Hughes, also a supporter, asked council to table the measure until the next meeting so Myers could be present to vote. “I’m going to make a motion that we table this ordinance right now,� said Hughes. “I was asked to do that by Councilman Myers. We are very divided about this and, of course, he’s not here. And he would have been, but he had to go out of town.� Councilman Dave Gallaher, who supports the cameras, voted against tabling the ordinance. “I’m not sure we can afford to table things because one council member is out of town,� said Gallaher. “I understand he’d like to be here to discuss it, and I wish he could be. The reason there’s seven of us is so if one or two of us can’t make a meeting, we can still get business done.� “My only comment is,� said Coun-


I’m going to make a motion that we table this ordinance right now. I was asked to do that by Councilman Myers. We are very divided about this and, of course, he’s not here.


Northwood Police Sergeant Doug Hubaker wants the city to continue operating automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras at two intersections for public safety reasons. Sgt. Hubaker, a 23-year police veteran who has been with Northwood 18 years, Wednesday morning spoke to arguably what may be the cameras’ biggest opponents — business men and women who are members of the Oregon-Northwood Rotary Club. Some fear motorists stay out of Northwood to avoid the cameras. Instead, Rotary Club members expressed agreement with Hubaker’s perspective — that public safety has improved since the cameras were installed in 2005. Ex-Mayor Dennis Ebel, who also owns D.R. Ebel Fire Equipment Sales and Services in Northwood, said the cameras are an effective tool. “As former mayor of Northwood, I wish this was available to me back then. We had too many accidents at Wales and Oregon roads and at the (Lemoyne and Woodville roads) intersection.� He said he did not realize, as noted by Hubaker, that the cameras do not catch motorists unless they are nine miles over the school zone of 20 mph, or 13 miles over the 35 mph speed limit outside the school zone. One Rotary guest asked Hubaker whether the city counted traffic to find out if it is has gone down since the cameras were installed. To his knowledge, no such survey was done, but “from a layman’s point of view,� it appeared to police that “a steady flow of traffic was going through Oregon-Wales now.� On May 2, it appeared that the contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., which installed and operates the cameras, would not be renewed because four of seven councilmen were considering voting against it. At a meeting on May 9, council tabled the vote because all seven councilmen were not present. The current three-year contract with Redflex expired on April 23. The city and Redflex share a percentage of the revenue from traffic citations issued as a result of the cameras, which have caught thousands of motorists speeding or going through red lights since they were installed. Violators do not get points on their licenses. Hubaker said if the fine is not appealed and remains unpaid, the matter can be referred to a collection agency, which can affect the violator’s credit report. One Rotary guest who deals in finance said she has seen it on credit reports.


By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer

cilman Randy Kozina, who is opposed to the cameras, but voted to table the measure, “if we do this tonight, this is going to continue until all seven of us are here, correct?� “Yes,� said Hughes. “I wouldn’t want it any other way, basically because I think it’s the only fair way.� Councilmen James Barton and Ed Schimmel, who are opposed to the cameras, voted against tabling the ordinance. Councilmen Dean Edwards, also an opponent, voted to table the ordinance. Mayor Mark Stoner, who backs the cameras, broke the 3-3 tie vote to table and delay a vote on the measure until the next council meeting.

“I see both sides of this,� said Stoner before he cast his tie breaking vote. “In all my years sitting in this seat, I believe if anyone asked for something to be tabled, we’ve approved it. So, under those circumstances, yes.� Council approved a contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., of Arizona, in 2005 to install and operate the automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras at two intersections: Woodville and Lemoyne roads, and Wales and Oregon roads. The current three year contract with the company expired on April 23. Fines are $110. Violators do not get points on their licenses. The city and Redflex share a percentage of the revenue from traffic citations issued as a result of the cameras, which have caught thousands of motorists speeding or going through red lights. Since the cameras were installed, the city has collected a total of $989,699.18 in fines, which are earmarked to fund safety improvement projects, such as the construction of a continuous right turn lane at Oregon and Wales roads. Opponents of the cameras say they have hurt business, that they are used as a way for the city to increase revenue, and that a higher percentage of fines leave the local economy for Arizona. Supporters, including Police Chief Tom Cairl, say the cameras are a deterrent to speeding and running red lights, and that revenue from the fines has funded many safety improvement projects in the city. Cairl also has provided statistics showing the number of accidents have dropped at those intersections since the cameras were installed.

Oregon amends its sign code to ease restrictions By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon City Council on May 13 approved changes to the municipal sign code in response to business concerns that it was too strict. “We’ve been working on this for months,� Administrator Mike Beazley said after the meeting. “We basically wanted to respond to the business community that had challenged us.� For years, the city has received complaints about ambiguities and inconsistencies in the sign code, according to Beazley. Local businesses and sign contractors have expressed frustration with the difficulty in understanding the requirements. “Ambiguities in the code have made it difficult for business, sign contractors, and even our own permit staff to make judg-


ments about what the code allows or disallows,� said Beazley. The challenging language and frustration with compliance have focused on code provisions for free standing signs, which were clarified as part of the sign code amendment. In the last couple of months, the city met with businesses and sign contractors and developed a set of changes to help clarify the code while remaining faithful to the public policy objectives in the original code, said Beazley. The most important change, according to Mayor Mike Seferian, is relaxing the rule against backlit signs. For years, Seferian said he had heard complaints from new businesses, particularly national chains, about the restrictions of backlit signs. “There were nationally syndicated chains with signs all over the United States

and the world that have backlit signs. But when they came to Oregon, they found they couldn’t put up their trademark sign, which had to be altered. If we are allowing changeable copy, why not allow businesses to light the background of their signs? It defies logic,� Seferian said after the meeting. Penn Station East Coast Subs, which was recently built on Navarre in a small strip mall, was the most recent franchise to learn that its backlit sign did not fall under the regulations of the sign code, said Seferian. “Businesses were actually ordering their signs, went to put them up, and found they were non-compliant. Ignorance of the law is no reason to change the law. But I think they took it for granted that their signs, which were up across the country, would be compliant because most cities permitted them and they are so common,� said Seferian. He gave the green light to

Penn Station to install the sign anyway because he was confident council would pass the ordinance that amended the code. “I had spoken to all seven council members, and knew they were going to vote for it,� said Seferian. The new flexibility in the sign code does not compromise the signs’ appearance in the community, said Seferian. “There is enough in the sign code that protects the integrity of signs in general so they actually look nice. Nobody is throwing together a sign that is shabby. It doesn’t do anything for the community. We still hold the actual structure and design of the sign to a high standard. We’re just allowing them to display their message better. We need to catch up to the times. We want it to be easy to do business in Oregon.�

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

Do you go to other Andersons since the Northwood store closed? If no, where?

What do you think of traffic cameras? They are needed to improve safety. I don’t like them because they invade my privacy. I don’t like them because they hurt business.

Anji Grant Northwood “No. It’s a shame because they had a nice selection. Anything that I would have bought at the Andersons I now buy at Menards or Meijer.”

Bessie Samsen Genoa “No. I go someplace else around here to get the things I would have normally got at the Andersons. I shop locally.”

Retail diversity To the editor: I’m glad I’m not the only one who is disappointed with the recent “economic developments” in Oregon. I have been a resident of Oregon since 2004 and I have yet to see anything that remotely resembles a decent and affordable place to shop besides Wal-Mart. I was beside myself with joy when I saw new buildings being constructed, thinking that maybe something worthwhile would finally be in our grasp. Then I saw the “Dollar Tree” sign. We brag that our city has some pretty substantial offerings – a lakeside resort, golf courses, state parks, an excellent school system, etc. But drive down Navarre Avenue and watch the eyes glaze over as the miles of fast food establishments and banks roll by. No interesting stores. A lack of diverse and healthy dining choices. Hardly a fine offering for any visitors who pass through. Clearly there is socioeconomic diversity in Oregon, but lately we’ve catered to only one side of the spectrum. I don’t see the point in Oregon constructing all of these nice subdivisions and homes to appeal to the middle and upper classes who are subsequently forced to shop/mingle in Rossford or over by Westfield. I’m not telling anyone to turn Oregon into a West Toledo by any means, but please consider everyone on the socioeconomic scale, especially the taxpayers (who are paying out the rump, by the way). I remember taking a poll on Panera Bread’s website about where to build a new restaurant. One choice was Oregon and I nearly lost my mind with de-

Jodi Harrington Oregon “No, I try to bicycle everywhere. I used to go to the Andersons but now I go to Menards. I try to go to the closest place I can because I have to go there literally like twice a day.”


Melissa Muenzer Toledo “I still go to the one on Talmadge road but I live in the Old West End. So I will go there for fresh food but that’s pretty much the only reason.”

Sandra Kruse Woodville “No, unless I need something specific. I don’t go there to just graze like I used to. I go to Menards now and it has become one of my favorite stores.”

light. Finally something healthy, trendy, and not fast food. I took that poll probably four years ago. But hey, we got a Sonic, right? That’s totally the same thing – not. Want a tip, city leaders? Tear down that Food Town eyesore or even K-Mart and build a Target – diverse and affordable enough for everyone while maintaining an air of dignity. Think about it. In the meantime, I’ll be sipping my grande soy latte at the cool new Biggby Coffee we just acquired. Because that’s about the only thing catering to my demographic on the East Side. Virginia Trace Oregon

Wrong on many levels To the editor: Mary Jo Bosch is wrong on so many levels in her rant on gay marriage (Right vs. wrong in the May 13 issue of The Press). She claims respect for others’ biology. Where is the respect in denying two people love for each other? The only harm being done is to her outdated religious beliefs; it’s not like the harm she and others like her are causing normal people. She got my dander up when she said society is falling apart because we don’t post the Ten Commandments in schools. Society falling apart is the only thing she got right. But it’s because of conservative

religions, not lack of religion. Their Republican preferences for greed have broken unions and caused mass poverty, which always leads to crime. They have condoned torture like the animals they are. They have let firearms become so numerous in society that mass killings take place or shootings of innocent children. Despite Bosch’s denial, they have spread hatred against liberals, gays and people of different skin color. They have elected radicals to government who refuse to compromise except on their terms. They bad mouth the government to push their corporate agenda. So look in the mirror, Ms. Bosch, and see all the harm your kind is causing. Albert Kapustar Oregon

Wake up To the editor: Congratulations to Mary Jo Thieman Bosch for the letter in the May 13 issue of The Press. Many of us feel as she does, but are bullied by the few radicals that are trying to change our beliefs and country. “In God We Trust.” It was like you were looking into my mind and heart. While I’m writing to The Press, there is something I have to say concerning Toledo Public Schools’ program for feeding the children in the school system. It’s a wonderful thing and I’m sure it helps those students concentrate on studies and not being

hungry. My only concern regarding the story in The Blade (May 7) was the large picture showing them being served on Styrofoam plates with plastic utensils that go in the dump. After phoning Larchmont School, I learned that every day, students are served meals that come in pre-packaged containers – throwaway containers and plastic silverware. What kind of food is this? We as citizens are being encouraged to recycle, eat fresh fruits and vegetables – natural foods, not pre-packaged. This is something the First Lady of our country has as a pet project, and a good one, I might add. When you go to the grocery store and see these young mothers filling their carts with all of this high sodium, non-nutritional packaged pre-packaged foods, this is what the school food program is teaching them. What happened in the schools where you had these wonderful cooks that made food from scratch – food that was nutritional and tasted wonderful, served on a washable tray with real silverware that went through the dishwasher? This would also provide more jobs and teach the next generation to buy good fresh foods that are cooked on a stove and not zapped in a microwave. We are being hammered to “go green” to stop obesity. What are these college-educated people doing to our next generation of leaders? Wake up, serve fresh food on a real plate with real silverware and wash it in the dishwasher. Ruth Price Oregon

What’s right in your life is more important than the wrong Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden toy they don’t have. There is an innate tendency to focus on the negative which is reinforced by examples of people getting caught up by what’s wrong while ignoring what’s right. This conditioning stays with you unless and until you make a conscious effort to change it. Concentrating on what’s wrong has far reaching effects. By turning your attitude negative, you risk attracting those very things you want to avoid. Enjoyment is sacrificed in exchange for stress. The people important to you are taken for granted and feel under appreciated. You experience more frustration than joy. Overall, you shortchange yourself and rob yourself of happiness. Here’s how you adjust your perspective. The goal is to refocus your attention on all

All that’s right in your life deserves your undivided attention.

It’s too easy to allow what’s wrong in your life overshadow what’s right. Just about everything could be going really well and yet one problem will consume your attention. You lose sight of the good things and become fixated on the one issue that’s not perfect. This is a common syndrome. In as much as it’s the squeaky wheel that gets oiled, problems draw your focus away from all of your blessings. Your outlook then becomes clouded by the perception of adversity. When observed in others, this pattern is obvious. As seen in others, it appears ridiculous. We watch someone with so much going for them fixate on a minuscule obstacle. We wonder how one relatively minor problem causes them to overlook all of what’s right. Have you ever watched two young siblings fighting over a toy? Inevitably, each of the siblings has their own chest filled with wonderful toys. Yet there will surely be a specific toy that belongs to one of them that is desired by the other. The child without the toy forgets about their own collection of other toys. Instead, all of their energy is focused on the toy they don’t have. They may even pout and scream in an attempt to get their way. It doesn’t matter that their parents encourage them to play with their other toys. All they care about is the one toy they don’t have. It’s obvious to adults how ridiculous it is for a child to become so distraught over one toy when they have so many others. Yet, we lose our perspective when it happens to us. Everything may be going great but you will still become consumed with something that’s not exactly the way you would like it to be. You wind up acting just like the child who only cares about the

that is right in your life while keeping the other stuff in perspective. As soon as your attention is drawn to a problem, stop and think of all of the good things you do have. There is nothing that’s too small or insignificant. Every good thing is worth noting. Once you have reviewed a complete list of all that’s right, you are ready to deal with whatever problem is at hand. After going through this process, the obstacle will usually seem smaller, more manageable, and less significant than it did at first. Go through these steps whenever your attention drifts towards what’s wrong. Use this approach before you become enmeshed

Getting full attention is like asking a frog to fly Have you tried to have a face-to-face conversation with a multi-tasker who is texting and twittering while wearing an ear bud? Annoying, isn’t it? Get used to it. For the first time in our nation’s history there are “four generations” in the workplace, says consultant Alicia Wagner. That creates a minefield of miscommunication. So, is that young multi-tasker being disrespectful when their attention is split three ways? Maybe, maybe not, says Wagner, a business coach and executive director of Women’s Entrepreneurial Network. Modern society, abetted by lighteningfast advancement in technology, has created these mulit-taskers. Trying to change them is futile. “It’s like asking a frog to fly,” Wagner says. If there’s no changing them, then those of us in leadership positions in the workplace need to understand the different ways four generations communicate as well as the different ways they approach their job responsibilities. This is imperative to maintain competitiveness and fashion a succession plan for the future. Let’s look at the challenges of our changing workplace following the Big Recession. Keep in mind, Wagner says, that these generation break downs are more about style than the traditional definition

by John Szozda of a generation. If you thought the Baby Boomers were going to ride off soon into the sunset of retirement, think again. Unlike their fathers, many Boomers do not have defined pension plans. They are relying on cashing in on the increased value of their homes and their 401-k investments. However, the decline in home values and the 2007 Wall Street crash will mean that the Baby Boomer Generation (1946-1964) will be forced to stay in the workplace longer. So too will the Silent Generation (1930-1945). Both will need to better their communication skills and learn how to motivate Generation X (1965-76) and Generation Y (1977-1990) as well as the Millennials (1991-2005) who are about to enter the workforce. While the Baby Boomer and Silent Generations prefer face-to-face communication, Generations X and Y prefer texting and email, Wagner says. Failing to recognize and adapt can cause, at best, miscommunication and, at worst, no communication. While learning how to use modern technology can help Boomers bridge the generation gap, it is more important to

eration holding a large percentage of the business leadership positions in America? “We have to get our egos out of the way,” she says. “Baby Boomers are so competitive and they want to be in control, so they don’t ask for help. They are afraid to be perceived as weak. Those who ask for help are going to be successful.” Wagner, a member of Generation Y but who says she exhibits more characteristics of Generation X, spent 10 years at a Fortune 500 Company before becoming disillusion with the pace of her advancement. She blamed gender discrimination until she left the corporate grind. She then came to the conclusion she was a victim of generational discrimination. Her experiences motivated her to become a certified coach through The Coaches Training Institute located in the San Francisco area. She counsels businesses and organizations on a number of subjects including how to improve communication between the generations. She recently gave a presentation on these differences to the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce. Wagner’s advice applies to more than the workplace. “We forget sometimes that the same things that make our companies successful can make our families successful.” That is — communication, clear expectations and holding people accountable.

make sure expectations are clearly communicated and understood and that people are held accountable. If you think communication between four generations can be difficult, consider the challenge managers face providing the right motivation to entice peak performance. One bonus system does not fit all anymore. Generally speaking, Boomers, for example, are ambitious and materialistic, Wagner says. They can be motivated by money. The same can’t be said for Generation X. This was the first latch-key generation. They also experienced the highest divorce rate and the pain of broken families. Wagner says they are more likely to say, “We don’t care about the money. We want time for vacations and flexibility in our schedules. We’re incentivized by time and quality interaction with our kids.” Generation Y could just as well be called Generation “Why,” Wagner says. They see their peers creating applications for cell phones and social media that make them instant millionaires. “They feel like something is wrong because they didn’t help design it. You need to get them involved in designing processes and procedures,” she says. Most of all they need to feel you are hearing what they have to say. Designing personal incentive programs, while maintaining fairness, becomes the challenge of the future, Wagner says. Her advice to Baby Boomers, the gen-

eek: Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

What does it mean to be "poor in spirit?" And why did Jesus counsel that the kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are poor in spirit? If we look at the relevant passages of scripture, it becomes clear that being poor in spirit is directly compared with a spirit of poverty, and is the essence of what God wants from us. Consider Isaiah 66:2.: "But this is the man to whom I will look, he that is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word." And in the Beatitudes, Jesus makes it abundantly clear that those who come before


God in a spirit of humility, in mourning, and in sincere meekness are favored over those with a sense of righteousness and spiritual pride. And although it can be quite difficult, especially when we are feeling proud of our spiritual accomplishments or are "on top of the world" spiritually; we would all do well to cultivate a sense of spiritual poverty. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." R.S.V. 1 Peter 5:5

HOME, YARD & GARDEN Prepare a patio or deck for outdoor entertaining Few things are better than having a functional and beautiful outdoor space to entertain guests. Having a great outdoor space enables a person to host parties or intimate gatherings all year long. Establishing an entertaining space and maintaining that space are essential when planning another year of fun in the sun. There are many things homeowners can do to ensure their entertaining space is safe and functional. As the season approaches, include some landscaping and decorating components to your preparatory plans to make the space as comfortable and aesthetically appealing as possible. Here are a few key tips for readying your yard for entertaining possibilities. Expand on these basics to customize an area for your unique needs. • Check the area for any needed repairs. Prior to your first entertaining session, look over the deck or patio to take note of any flaws that may present safety hazards. Are there any loose railings? Are all screws and nails flush so they do not cause tripping? Are there any cracks in concrete or loose patio blocks? Be sure to remedy all of the repairs needed to ensure guests will be safe. If you are unsure of any structural deficits, consult with a contractor. • Hire a reputable contractor. If you are just laying the groundwork for a new patio or deck, it is important to get the necessary permits and then hire a person who has been properly vetted. Check qualifications and licensing before hiring a contractor and ask to view a portfolio of his or her previous work. Word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted friends and family members are good, and you can also

Patios and decks designed with well-defined areas establish gathering places. double-check qualifications by contacting the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been lodged or use a service such as Angie’s List to read reviews of his or her work. • Think about closing in a portion of a deck or patio. The use of a canopy, netting or even greenery to protect an entertaining space can help minimize weather-related damage to outdoor furniture. Netting will keep a good number of biting insects at

bay when the weather is warm and humid. Having a bit of concealment also means you can create a private space that isn’t easily viewed by neighbors or passersby. • Plan well-defined areas. Just as rooms serve different purposes inside of the home, outdoor areas can be separated according to usage. Establish a sitting nook where guests can gather and talk. Have a bar or serving area where refreshments are made and served. Make sure there is a shaded

area for when the sun is too uncomfortable to make sitting outside enjoyable. Similarly, have a sunny area where people can soak up a few rays or dry off after a dip in the spa or pool. Don’t forget to establish a spot for the kids to converge with scaleddown amenities. • Consider a fireplace or fire pit. For centuries man (and woman) has gathered around fire for socialization and a means to warming up. Having a backyard fireplace, pit or chiminea is a conversation-starter, a decorative focal point, and a functional tool to extend the number of seasons in which outdoor entertaining can take place. Place the fire wisely and with concern for safety. It should be out of the way of foot traffic, but central enough so that it can be a gathering point. • Invest in quality outdoor furniture. Today’s yards are extensions of a home’s interior. Guests no longer want to sit on uncomfortable metal or plastic furniture. There are many different outdoor sofas and chairs that are as stylish as they are comfortable. These pieces can be matched to the decor inside your home for a cohesive look. • Accessorize. Consider the creature comforts of indoors and mimic that outdoors. Don’t shy away from hanging artwork on an exterior wall or using urns or pottery to decorate the space. Weather-resistant materials ensure everything from clocks to televisions can be used outdoors. Think about having an entire set of serving dishes and other entertaining items for the outdoors. When refurbishing outdoor entertaining areas, emphasize comfort, safety and functionality.

Gardening suggestions for enthusiastic beginners Gardening is a rewarding hobby that many enthusiasts credit with helping them to peacefully escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Though gardening can be both relaxing and rewarding, it’s not as easy as it may seem, and the more time and effort a person devotes to his or her garden the more likely it is to be successful. Gardening can be a little daunting for beginners who have little or no experience planting flowers or vegetables. But gardening need not be so intimidating, especially for those beginners who adhere to the following tips aimed at helping novice gardeners start their gardens off on the right foot. • Determine what you should plant. Where you live will go a long way toward determining what you should plant. While you can plant anything you can get your hands on, the United States Department of Agriculture as well as Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada have determined specific plant hardiness zones that indicate which plants are most likely to thrive in given locations. Maps of these zones can be found at and www.agr. By adhering to the maps, gardeners can significantly increase their chances of growing successful gardens. When in doubt about what to plant, consult a local

By sticking to a few simple rules beginners can develop a thriving garden. gardening center or seek advice from a professional landscaper. • Think location when beginning your garden. Beginners with large yards have the luxury of choosing the right location on their properties to start planting. When choosing a spot, consider how much sunlight a location gets on a daily basis and the spot’s proximity to a water supply. If plant-

ing flowers, try to avoid planting in areas with heavy foot traffic so the flowers are less likely to be stomped. If you’re planting flowers to accent walkways, then consider erecting a barrier around the flower bed to safeguard the flowers from foot traffic. • Get started before you plant. Preparing the soil a few weeks before you start planting can help the plants thrive down the

road. Add some organic material, such as compost or fertilizer, to the soil roughly three weeks before planting. This helps the soil retain water and nutrients, which will help your garden thrive. • Time your planting. When you plant is sometimes as important as what you plant. Some climates allow for year-round planting, but many do not. When buying seeds, the packaging might suggest what time of year to plant the seeds. Adhere to these suggestions or your garden might not grow much at all. In addition, keep in mind that many seedlings need significant light throughout the day in order to grow, so choose a time of year with ample daylight. • Don’t forget to mulch. Mulch can be as aesthetically appealing as it is effective. Mulch retains soil, helping roots to grow stronger, while deterring bugs and preventing weed growth. And many gardeners find mulch adds visual appeal their garden, and does so in a very inexpensive way. • Clean your tools. Beginners rarely recognize the importance of cleaning gardening tools before putting them away. At the end of each gardening session, clean your tools thoroughly, as soil left on your garden tools can play host to potentially harmful microbes that might kill your plants. By sticking to a few simple rules, beginners can develop a thriving garden.

Pruning trees and shrubs essential for maintaining health, vigor Pruning trees and shrubs is necessary to ensure they maintain their health and vigor. Trees and shrubs should be inspected annually to determine if they need to be pruned. Mature trees typically do not need to be pruned as frequently as young trees, which need pruning to establish branch structure. Trees and shrubs that go years without pruning can become overgrown and weak. In addition to promoting tree and shrub health, pruning pays a host of other dividends. • Pruning removes dead or diseased branches. Pruning helps a tree or shrub maintain its shape and vigor by removing broken, dead or diseased branches that can be unsightly and make it more difficult for the tree or shrub to stay healthy. When broken, dead or diseased branches are removed, trees or shrubs look healthier and add aesthetic appeal to a property. • Pruning trees and shrubs promotes growth of other plants. Trees and shrubs that go years without being pruned become overgrown, making it difficult for plants underneath them to grow in healthy. Grass beneath an overgrown tree might not get adequate sunlight, which it needs to establish strong roots so it can grow in lush and healthy. Pruning allows plants beneath the tree and shrub and even those next to the tree and shrub to grow in nicely.

• Pruning can sometimes bring plants back to life. Shrubs that have gone years without being pruned can sometimes still be salvaged. In some instances, pruning such shrubs can restore natural and healthy growth. • Pruning reduces risk of accidents. Overgrown trees can interfere with power lines, increasing the risk of accidents and power outages. In addition, overgrown trees tend to have larger, weaker limbs, which can prove hazardous and cause property damage during storms. Pruning overgrown trees reduces the risk of such accidents. • Pruning can save money. Over time, overgrown trees might require professional assistance in order to be removed or pruned from a property. Homeowners who prune their trees as needed can save themselves the cost of a potentially pricey tree service. • Pruning adds curb appeal. A property littered with overgrown trees and shrubs hurts a home’s curb appeal, giving prospective buyers the impression that homeowners might have been careless with regard to maintaining the house and not just the lawn. Trees and shrubs that are pruned and well-maintained can add to a home’s curb appeal, something that goes a long way toward impressing prospective buyers.

Pruning helps a tree or shrub maintain its shape and vigor.

Well-defined edging can help your yard look better maintained Edging a lawn is a springtime rite of passage for many homeowners. When winter has come and gone, many lawns are left in need of some serious maintenance, including edging. Well-defined edges around the yard make the yard look more organized and better maintained. And edging is relatively easy, especially for those homeowners with a smaller yard. Edging can be time-consuming for those with more property, but when done properly, edging is definitely worth the effort. • Remove debris from the areas you plan to edge. Before you even begin to edge, be sure to remove any debris from those areas that need edging. Debris, including rocks, twigs or the kids’ toys, left lying around can be kicked up when you’re edging, potentially causing injury to you or someone standing nearby. • Purchase safety goggles.

removed all visible debris, there still may be some items hidden in the grass. These items can be kicked up and hit you in the eye, so purchase some safety goggles and be sure to wear them whenever you’re edging. As an added precaution, keep kids and others away from any areas you’re edging so they aren’t injured by any unseen debris that gets kicked up while you’re working. • Check your tools. Edging can be done by using a gas-powered edger or a string trimmer. Before you begin to edge, inspect these tools to ensure they’re capable of handling the task at hand. Inspect the blades on a gas-powered edger to make sure they haven’t dulled since their most recent use. If they are dull, sharpen them before you start to edge. When using a string trimmer, make sure you have enough string on hand to complete the project. String trimmers use a particular kind of string, so visit your

When you begin, make sure the edger is between the sidewalk or driveway and the edge of the lawn, placing the wheel of the edger on the sidewalk or driveway and then pushing and pulling the edger until you have created a clear edge. If you have never edged before, you may want to practice on smaller, more isolated areas until you become comfortable operating the edger.

How to effectively clean your home’s dirty windows Dirty windows are unsightly, and they can prevent beneficial sunlight from entering a home. Cleaning windows need not be done every week, but it shouldn’t be overlooked completely, either. While it certainly may be a chore to clean windows, there are ways to make the task much more tolerable. Curb appeal can be very important when selling a home. Even a home with a perfectly manicured lawn and the newest roofing and siding can seem unappealing if the windows are dirty. Keeping windows clean requires a good deal of work. For the acrophobics, cleaning second-story windows can test the nerves. Having the right tools on hand and a strategy in place will make the job easier to manage. Cleaning windows Cleaning windows won’t necessarily be easy, but the following nine-step process can make the task less difficult and timeconsuming. 1. Choose a day when it is overcast so you will not be blinded by the sun while cleaning. This also helps prevent streaking. Begin by gathering what you’ll need to get the task done. Having everything at the ready will enable you to move from one window to the next. Here are the basic supplies you will need: * cleaning solution * cloth, newspaper or squeegee * towel * spray bottle * extension pole to reach high windows

Even a home with a well manicured lawn and new roofing and siding can seem unappealing if the windows are dirty.

* vacuum * ladder or step stool * garden hose 2. Take down and clean drapery or blinds when cleaning the windows. Remove the curtains so you will have an unobstructed surface with which to work. 3. Start with the interior side of the windows, as they are easier to access. Place a towel on the sill to catch any drops so the sill or the floor will stay dry. 4. Spray a lint-free cloth or the window directly with the cleaning solution. The edges and corners of the window tend to accumulate the most grime, so begin by cleaning those areas first. Once they are clean and you will not exchange dirt to the center of the window, work on the middle. Wipe the windows in a horizontal direction to help alleviate dripping. 5. To create a streak-free surface, some people prefer to use a squeegee to drag out any pockets of moisture for more even drying. Be sure to wipe the rubber strip of the squeegee after each pass on the window. You may choose to buff out any other streaks with newspaper. 6. Vacuum the window sill and frame afterward to catch any dust and debris.

7. Repeat the process for all interior windows. 8. Move outdoors and start off by spraying the window with a garden hose to loosen any of the accumulated grime. Use your cleaning solution to dissolve the rest of the dirt. You may want to let it sit on the window if there is stubborn grime. 9. If exterior second-floor windows are hard to reach, consider using a ladder and extension pole to extend your reach. Upper windows will not be scrutinized as closely as lower windows, so you may have a greater margin for error. If the windows are simply too high up, rely on a professional window cleaner to get the job done rather than risk falls or other injuries. Mix your own cleaning solution It may take trial and error to find a solution that works. Here is one recipe you may want to start with. 1 cup white vinegar 11/2 cups rubbing alcohol 2 drops of dish soap Pour into a clean and empty spray bottle. Remember: Never mix bleach and ammonia together to create a cleaning solution, as toxic fumes will result.

Clay, Cardinal Stritch grads capture walleye contest By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor A four-man team representing Oregon business Artistic Touch Taxidermy won the Ohio walleye fishing contest in rainy weather on Lake Erie. The team of Matt Schimming, Mark Lodzinski, John Pollauf, and Greg Pollauf, who are all either Clay or Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School graduates, hauled in 29.6 pounds to best 19 other fishing boats. The Oregon-based team also had the three biggest fish at 6.6, 6.4, and 6.2 pounds. Lodzinski was happy with the results, which led to a small cash prize he estimated at $100. “We were fortunate to (win it). We did great. It was a fun trip — first time I got paid to go fishing,” Lodzinski, owner of the Bayshore Road taxidermy shop, said. “For me, that’s a rarity. Normally I pay about $100 to go fishing. Too bad the weather wasn’t better, or there would have been more boats and the payoff would have been more.” The event was scheduled for a Saturday, but was moved to Sunday because of high winds and poor conditions. Conditions were not much better on Sunday, leading to a lower turnout. ‘The weather was just poor, but there was a lot of fish caught that day,” Lodzinski said. “But it spread out, and we were fortunate enough that we went farther out to a little cleaner water and we got some bigger fish. We found a small pocket of fish and stayed with it, so we stayed on big fish in the morning before the boat traffic showed up. Everybody else caught fish, but the quality was a little bit smaller than ours.” The tournament was headquartered at Magee East Marina, recently purchased and renovated by Millbury home improvement remodeler Ted Thomas. “They had a great day,” Thomas said. “There was actually quite a few more, but it got blown off the day before because there was so much wind. Having the blow-off, it kind of subsided a few guys who couldn’t make it.” Thomas believed it was an opportunity to show off his marina, located by Davis-

(Press photo by Russ Lytle) Besse Nuclear Power Station on Route 2 near Oak Harbor. Since purchasing, the former Inland Marina has been through an extensive renovation process and is getting positive reviews on outdoor website forums. “Honestly, I was just at the right place at the right time,” Thomas said. “We were looking at doing something else besides renovating homes, and I’m a big outdoorsman, so I got involved with it. “We’ve cleaned it up a lot. We’re filling the boat docks and the campground pretty steadily, and rebuilding everything. We tore out the docks and are rehabbing everything. “We expanded the bait and tackle store and we’ve got a little bar there and carry-out, and expanded that considerably, and put in a propane tank. We’re actually filling propane out there now. We rebuilt the ramps to whatever is necessary to get them up and running better. We’re open every day, and

that’s a huge plus, and we have weekend camping and day to day camping.” The tournament director, charter boat captain Randy Eyre of Swanton-based Hot Rod Sports Fishing, said the fishing tournament was originally an opportunity for outdoorsmen who are members of, a website forum, to meet. “It was just a small event — it wasn’t intended to be a really big tournament or anything like that,” Eyre said. “It was really to go out and fish, throw a couple dollars in the pot for the tournament, and come back and have a fish fry.” Eyre, who competes in professional walleye contests, put the event together for one other reason — to educate. “I do educational fishing charters where I teach people techniques, and I wanted to kind of see how people do. Tournament boats aren’t like the big Lake Erie boats that

you see, but the fishing tactic and gear are very similar, so I’m trying to educate guys on how to catch walleye. “Plus, I like ‘Waterfowler’ and I frequent that website quite a bit, and I know the owner, so if you are on these forums of any kind you get to know some of these screen names but you can’t put a face with the name, so we put something together so everybody can kind of hang out and get to know some guys,” Eyre continued. The forum was founded in 2002 by Captain Mark Budnick as a way for water fowling friends to stay in touch and discuss their passion. quickly became a popular cyberspace gathering place for duck and goose hunters. In March of 2006, Budnick decided to pursue other ventures and handed over the reins to DeWayne Knight, the current owner.

Katilyn Turski named Ohio conference’s best pitcher By Nicholas Huenefeld Owens Sports Information Owens Community College freshman pitcher Katilyn Turski (Cardinal Stritch Catholic) has been named Ohio Community College Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year. Turski went 8-3 in the OCCAC with an 3.46 ERA. She led the league in wins and innings pitched (66.2). Her win total was more than double the next closest player, while she started 11 of the team’s 12 conference games. She saw action in every conference game. Turski was also named to the Region XII All-Tournament Team. She finished her season at 20-10 against all opponents. Aside from those top honors, the Express placed four players on the AllOCCAC team, including sophomore catcher Olivia Reeder (Genoa). Reeder led the league in RBIs with 21 while hitting .333 (13-for-39). She also

added seven runs, five doubles and two stolen bases. Her doubles total was second in the league. The Express, which finished second in the OCCAC behind Cuyahoga Community College, dominated most offensive statistical categories in OCCAC play. In runs, Melanie Iacoangeli (17), Mareshah Scott (13), Jaylee Glad (11), Amanda Sinay (9) and Hannah Shank (8) finished first, third, fourth, sixth and tenth. Sinay is also a Stritch product. In hits, Iacoangeli (21), Scott (19), Emily Rockman (18) and Sinay (17) finished first, second, third and fifth. In doubles, Rockman (7) and Reeder (5) were the top two, but Katie Butler added four doubles to finish third. In triples, the league had 17 of them combined. Of those, the Express picked up five of them. Iacoangeli had two, while Alyssa Lassey, Taylor Miller, and Sinay each had one. Stolen bases are, perhaps, the category most dominated by the Express. They had

the top four base stealers, as well as six of the top seven. Iacoangeli (25), Sinay (9), Scott (8) and Jaylee Glad (5) were the top four, while Hannah Shank (3) and Tyniesha Wilson (3) finished tied for sixth. The Express also placed four of their hitters in the top five in batting average, while Sinay was also in the top 10. Scott (.594) and Iacoangeli (.477) were the top two, while Glad (.438) and Rockman (.429) finished fourth and fifth. Sinay’s .415 average put her eighth. As a team, the Express finished first in runs (97), first in hits (144), first in doubles (22), second in triples (5), first in RBI (81), first in walks (23), first in stolen bases (57), first in batting average (.410), first in on base percentage (.449) and first in slugging (.519). In strikeouts, they had the second fewest, and they only hit two home runs, which put them fourth. The Express finished the season at 2417. They reached the Region XII District G tournament finals for the fourth time in five seasons this year.

Undefeated Jordan Grosjean could be Clay’s next promise By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer Clay High has produced countless college and professional baseball players over the decades. Add Jordan Grosjean to that list of those moving on to the nexzt level. The senior pitcher has led the Eagles to an 11-10 record, a 6-2 mark in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference, and to the Division I district tournament. And when he’s finished playing at Clay, he’ll have a scholarship waiting for him at NCAA Division I Central Michigan University in the fall. In 2013, Grosjean has 72 strikeouts in 51 innings and is 6-0 with a 0.54 ERA in eight starts. The TRAC Pitcher of the Year as a junior, Grosjean pitched the Eagles to a sectional title Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) in seven innings as Clay rallied to defeat Springfield, 3-2, at Lourdes College’s Mercy Field. A high point in Grosjean’s career came on April 26 when he threw a no-hitter and struck out six in Clay’s 10-0 victory in five innings over Central Catholic. The only thing separating Grosjean from a perfect game was a third-inning walk. In Clay’s diamond fashion, just nine days before that, the Eagles’ softball team saw Brooke Gallaher throw a no-hitter in a five-inning game. Grosjean also threw a no-hitter in the tournament last season when Clay defeated former perennial state powerhouse Start, 11-0. He was also instrumental in the Eagles’ run to the regional semifinals in 2012, pitching in three of the team’s five games. Clay won four games in the tournament, including victories in the district semifinal and final against St. John’s Jesuit and Sylvania Southview. “This season is going great,” Grosjean said. “This is my senior year and there’s nothing I want more than to go as far as a state run.” He’s certainly worked to get to that point. Over the past year, Grosjean has lost 40 pounds. As a result, his stamina has increased and he’s throwing harder. “I’ve done everything in my power to prepare for my last high school season,” he

Up to

Central Michiganbound Clay senior pitcher Jordan Grosjean delivers. (Press photo by Jeff Smith/ www. smith6312. smugmug. com) said, “and I’m glad it’s paying off.” Most importantly, he is on the same page with his catcher, senior Ty McAtee, who’s been his battery mate for the past three years. “I love (Ty) to death,” Grosjean said. “He’s been my catcher and good friend for four years now. I know he wants to win just as bad as I do and I love that. I know he

will give everything he has to get the ‘W.’” But more than anything, the key for a pitcher is being able to trust his catcher. He says knowing that his battery mate will be there to block pitches in the dirt is critical to pitching with confidence. “There’s nothing more I want as a pitcher than to have someone behind the plate I can trust if I have to throw a curve

in the dirt for strike three,” Grosjean said. “I know he’ll block it and get (the batter) at first.” Coach Garry Isbell relishes the duo’s rapport. “It’s really important,” Isbell said. “Jordan and Ty are really good buddies. McAtee has been catching for three years and is aware of when he needs to calm Jordan down and help him out.” But a pitcher can’t win without run support, and he’s gotten his share of offensive from his teammates. With three players hitting over .300, Grosjean says he can count on the lineup of Ryan Fournier, Bryce Castilleja, Lucas Robson, Grosjean, McAtee, Matt York, Austin Gwin, Josh Pennington and Kyle Row. In Clay’s win over Springfield, the Eagles rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the top of the seventh behind clutch hitting. McAtee started things off with a single before pinch hitter Chandler Cannon lined a double down the left field line to score Troy Graham, the pinch-runner, and tie the game. Graham had reached second on a balk by Springfield’s Blake Rudolph. Cannon, whose brother, Kyle, was paralyzed in 2008 while competing for the Clay hockey team, scored from third on an infield hit later in the inning to give the Eagles the lead. “The team is everything,” Grosjean said. “No one can win a game by themselves. There’s no one I’d rather share the field with — the team wants to win. I trust them.” Isbell speaks highly of Grosjean and the progress he’s made since joining the varsity in the middle of his freshman season. “Jordan came in as a freshman and has made progress,” Isbell said. “He had some issues — he didn’t understand what it took as far as his work ethic. We had our battles. His junior year, he realized what it took in the weight room and with conditioning in the offseason. He’s done everything I’ve asked of him. “I believe he’ll be very successful at the next level. Hopefully, we’ll roll with him in the tournament and watch him in college and maybe the pros. I’m real proud of him.”

Stritch’s freshman class strengthens track program By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Cardinal Stritch Catholic’s girls’ track and field team found out real quick this season that there is, indeed, strength in numbers. Stritch alum Nicole Bergman had eight girls on the team last year, her rookie year as the Cardinals’ coach. This season, thanks to an influx of talented freshmen, Stritch had 23 athletes come out for the squad. “Our girls’ team is doing fantastic this year,” Bergman said. “We have a nice group of (14) freshmen that came in. We have placed pretty high in every meet. Last year we would be second to last, or last. We’re still building our program and still getting more girls to come out. We have more depth. Right now we have fast girls, but we also need the fourth- and fifth-place finishers.” A handful of freshmen are already making an impact. Kali Hardy is one-tenth of a second from breaking the 28-year-old school record in the 100-meter dash, running a personalbest 12.7 seconds at a meet in Fremont. She broke the school’s 200-meter record at the NWOCSA Championships at Sandusky St. Mary, finishing in 25.9. The old record was a 26.4, set in 1984. “She’s quick and she’s a tiny girl,” Bergman said. “You would lose her in a crowd. She’s really good at coming out of the blocks, catching up with people and finishing strong. We were running against Toledo Christian at the Northwood meet and she had a 50-meter gap (as the anchor leg) in the 4x200 relay. She closed that gap and was one-tenth of a second from placing first.” Kali’s cousin, Kama Hardy, has been “fantastic” in the 300 hurdles, according to

Bergman. Kama Hardy also runs the 4x100 and now anchors the 4x400 relay, which consists of all freshmen. “Kali and Kama together are a pretty good pair,” Bergman said. “Kama is going to be fantastic in everything she does. We have a lot of girls who run the same times. Whoever we put in the 4x100 and 4x200 have all done really well.” Stritch’s 4x100 relay consists of sophomore Kailyn Horna, freshman Abbie Reichert and Kama and Kali Hardy. That relay is one second shy of the school record (52.5) heading into this Friday’s Toledo Area Athletic Conference meet at Gibsonburg. The Cardinals are also strong in the 4x200 relay, which consists of Horna, senior Olivia Lapz and Kama and Kali Hardy. “We definitely have a talented young group of girls,” Bergman said, adding that junior discus thrower Jennifer Trumbull has won nearly every meet this season. Her best throw this year is 117 feet, 9 inches and she is closing in on Bergman’s schoolrecord throw of 121-7, set in 2005. “She goes out there every time and does well,” Bergman said. “I see her taking first in every meet we have next year.” Another solid performer has been freshman Lauren Loucks in the 400, 800 and 4x400. “She’s been great at middle distance,” Bergman said. “She’s placing pretty high in the 400.” Bergman said she has high hopes at Friday’s TAAC meet, but she knows Gibsonburg and Toledo Christian will be tough to beat. “We’re going to give them a run for their money,” Bergman said. “I’m excited to see how we hold up. Last year I believe we took sixth place. I’m hoping for first this year, but we just don’t necessarily have the

depth. I think we can get second or third.” Stritch’s boys team, which has 24 athletes and won a quad meet at Danbury this season, has had some solid individual performances. Sophomore Zack Matthews, a regional qualifier in the 400 last spring, is back in that event this season and also runs on the 4x200, 4x400 and 4x800 relays. “He’s the one who gets out of the blocks and is usually first in his leg on the relays,” Bergman said. “He starts off well and can catch up to kids. He’s a strong athlete. I definitely think he’ll get back to regionals (in the 400). His best time last year was 54.4, and this year he ran a 54.7 at mid-season. I definitely hope he’ll PR soon.” Sophomore Bobby Romstadt has been a versatile runner, competing in the 300 hurdles and 4x400 and 4x800 relays. “We can put him in anything, in the sprints and in the two-mile,” Bergman said. “He’s been one of our top athletes this year.” Sophomore Tim Lynn (4x800, 1600, 3200) and junior Johnny Grayczyk (400, relays) also drew praise from their coach. “All three of these boys (Romstadt, Lynn, Grayczyk) are reasons I became a coach,” Bergman said. “All of them are dedicated and start practice on time and do what they need to do. They know what they want to run and set goals for themselves and they accomplish those goals. Johnny’s true love is soccer. We were lucky to get him this year.” Junior discus thrower Michael Outland has a season PR of 125-7 and is a regular top-six placer. “We’ve seen huge progress,” Bergman said. “Last year he threw 112 at districts. This year, in our third meet, he threw 125.”

TAAC expansion underway with addition of Calvert The Toledo Area Athletic Conference has unanimously approved Tiffin Calvert as its ninth full-time member. “We’re pretty excited about it,” Northwood athletic director Reese Snyder said. “I think it’s a good move. It broadens everything up a little bit and it’s good for our teams from down there.” Calvert will begin playing in the TAAC in the fall of 2014. “We’re very happy with the inclusion of Calvert into our league,” TAAC Commissioner Rick Kaifas said. “We think that they offer a top-shelf athletic program, academic success in all areas, and it’s a good feel for our conference. “We’ll have some time to incorporate them into all of our schedules and I know a lot of the league teams already play them in certain sports, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to do.” Calvert will join three area schools, Gibsonburg, Northwood, and Cardinal Stritch Catholic, and five other full-time members Danbury, Maumee Valley Country Day, Emmanuel Christian, Ottawa Hills, and Toledo Christian, but MVCD and EC do not have gridiron programs. Edon and Hilltop, members of the Buckeye Border Conference for all other sports, play football in the TAAC. Calvert could boost the league’s football strength. The Catholic parochial school has been to the playoffs 11 times, including last fall. Calvert won back-to-back state

“It’s a good fit that way,” Snyder said. “Obviously, we’re excited about it for football and the other sports they bring as well — wrestling and they’ve been good at basketball. It helps round it out, but obviously nine is not a good number when it comes to scheduling for football because we’re going to have somebody with a bye, so that’s why we’re trying to pursue another team and put one more in so then we can get to 10.” The TAAC has already begun its search for one more school. “It has to be a full, comprehensive athletic schedule. We need a football member, but we’re happy with what’s coming in now and we’ll make due with what we have, even if we have to do some creative scheduling to make it all happen. We won’t be meeting again until late summer or early fall. We have no deadline (to find a 10th school),” Kaifas said. Calvert is currently a member of the Midland Athletic League, which is folding after the 2013-14 school year. Six of the MAL schools are forming the Sandusky River League, but only two, Lakota and Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic,

have football. Sandusky St. Mary CC, which has football, has committed to leaving the Sandusky Bay Conference to join the SRL. Four other MAL schools heading to the SRL, Bettsville, Fostoria St. Wendelin, New Riegel, and Old Fort, do not have football. Dave Schmidt, a league consultant and editor of, believes St. Mary should reconsider its options. “SMCC has to think about rejoining the SBC, who just tabled, according to my sources, a membership bid from Vermillion. Quite a nightmare for them (St. Mary),” Schmidt told The Press. It’s difficult to have a football league with just three teams, but the SRL is turning down any merger ideas so far. “We offered for them to come in as a whole league and make it a mega-league and who knows what will happen there,” Snyder said. “At this point in time they don’t want to — they want to go their own way.” Schmidt believes the SRL is digging a deeper hole by not merging. “Calvert made a move that helps them, not a selfish move by any means. SRL schools now find themselves competing with the SBC, BVC (Blanchard Valley Conference), N10 (Northern 10) and TAAC for members — not very good odds for them,” Schmidt said. “They need to move now or they face a long wait for stability. SRL looks to be the big loser in all of these changes.”

Fundraiser planned to help Woodville’s “Hometown Girl” By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer

“ “’s important to try to keep eating.....

It was supposed to be a “routine” hysterectomy – an operation recommended to alleviate ongoing pelvic pain. By all accounts, Corrie Albright’s surgery went as expected, however in the nearly two years since, the Woodville woman has endured a nightmarish litany of complications that have baffled doctors and left her debilitated, malnourished and fighting to survive. Albright, 44, born and raised in the Woodville/Genoa area, underwent the hysterectomy in July 2011. “I was having a lot of pelvic pain – a complication of an ablation procedure I had had about five years before that. I was looking forward to not having to take pain meds all the time. “But even with the pain, I was active – I took care of my mom who had Parkinson’s, I had a family, worked out five days a week,” she said. “I woke up from the surgery in a lot of pain – more than I would have expected – and within a day or two, I was having nausea, vomiting and constipation,” Corrie recalled. Doctors speculated the symptoms were a side effect from anesthesia or pain meds associated with the surgery and told Corrie they would eventually go away. They encouraged her to be patient, but the symptoms not only continued, new ones emerged. “I lost 55 pounds in three months,” Corrie said. “I ended up in the hospital; my primary care physician said I was malnourished – so much so my organs were about two weeks away from shutting down.” Doctors ordered intravenous feeding, and ran tests that revealed gastric and intestinal paresis – paralysis of the digestive system. They suggested Corrie go to the Cleveland Clinic for further testing and possibly a gastric pacemaker, which would help move the food through the digestive system. In Cleveland, doctors ran tests and said

Corrie Albright, with sons Aaron and Marcus. the gastric paresis wasn’t severe enough to warrant a gastric pacemaker, so they put in a feeding tube in her abdomen to boost Corrie’s nutrition. The tube feedings helped but nausea and vomiting continued and her blood levels were still not at optimum levels. In March, she had to be admitted to the hospital, where doctors discovered gallstones, which required surgery. In June 2012, Corrie was still losing weight, so doctors implanted a Hickman catheter to deliver IV feeding in addition to the tube feeding. Meanwhile doctors remained baffled about why Corrie couldn’t eat or drink without vomiting. “Doctors said they had never seen anything like this before. And they didn’t know what to do.”

Frustrated and determined to find out what was going on, Corrie did some reading and Internet research, which led her to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. She finally arranged an appointment in January of this year, “The doctor felt I had some sort of nerve damage or nerve interruption in the pelvic floor and the autonomic nerve system,” she said. “The problem is, there aren’t any tests yet to diagnose the autonomic nervous system.” While at Mayo, Corrie underwent biofeedback therapy to try to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which produced little or no results. Mayo Clinic doctors also suggested she undergo the ileostomy – a surgery in which an opening is created bringing the end or loop of small intestine (the ileum) out onto

the surface of the skin. “When I eat something, it just sits – it goes nowhere,” she said. “My stomach doesn’t accommodate food – whenever it gets food, it’s like a trampoline – it gets bounced back out. “With the ileostomy, the food will never go to the lower digestive system,” she said. “And even if I eat and drink a little bit, I may be able to get some calories the normal way, “The doctors tell me that it’s important to try to keep eating – basically, if I don’t use it, I’ll lose it, referring to my digestive system – and maybe one day, it may start working again. They just don’t know.” she said. Corrie faces other challenges as well. The combination of the IV feedings and malnutrition have caused calcifications in her brain, severe osteoporosis in her hips requiring daily injections and blood pressure issues. She also has to spend some of her precious energy on the phone dealing with insurance claims and doctor bills. Though insurance has covered some of her care, exorbitant medical bills have all but exhausted the family’s resources. To help alleviate some of the financial worries, a spaghetti dinner fundraiser will be held June 7 from 5-8:30 p.m. at Woodville United Methodist Church, 201 W. First St., Woodville. The donation is $7 for adults and $4 for children 10 and under. The dinner will include homemade spaghetti with all the fixings. There will be a silent auction. Tickets are available by calling the church office at 419-849-2400. Donations may also made in Corrie’s name at any Huntington Bank branch.

Beware of scammers impersonating aging services staff The Ohio Department of Aging has issued a consumer alert for older adults throughout the state following several incidents in southern Ohio of scammers impersonating staff of elder services agencies to attempt to get information or access to elders’ homes. All residents and their families should be aware of anyone showing up unannounced to their homes claiming to represent an area agency on aging or other similar organization. Tips to avoid becoming a victim: • Do not allow anyone in your home if you were not expecting him or her. Any representative of an area agency on aging

will schedule a home visit or allow the visit to be verified. • Ask for identification and call 1-866243-5678 during regular business hours to be connected to your area agency on aging to verify the individual is who he or she claims to be. Representatives of area agencies on aging are required to carry a badge or other documents identifying them as an employee of the agency. • If asked to complete or sign forms, insist that you be allowed to review them and mail them in later. Verify any forms with your area agency on aging before completing or signing. If the person insists you

Include a description of the person and, if possible, his or her vehicle. • Scammers also may try to call consumers and ask for information. Legitimate representatives of an area agency on aging will always provide an employee name and call-back number. If you suspect fraud, get the caller’s name, then hang up and call 1866-243-5678 and ask about the caller.

Scammers may claim to represent an area agency on aging, council on aging, office of aging, PASSPORT or other organizations with similar titles. In all the currently known incidents, the consumers suspected fraud and refused to comply with the requests. Those who feel they may have been a target should contact local law enforcement. The Department of Aging wants to ensure that no resident is victimized by these apparent scams, and is working with the aging network and state and local law enforcement on education and prevention.

Shy, bashful peony adds “bold beauty” to a garden By J.K. DePeal Garden Writer After a very chilly, wet spring – May has come with a burst of fresh green and colorful blooms on trees, shrubs, and spring flowers. The bright colors of May are a treat to the senses after the gloomy gray of a long winter. It seems like the later heat of the season also tends to draw some of the brightness out of the colors of the grass, flowers and foliage during the summer months. Mid-May is usually the safe planting period for Northwest Ohio but it is always a good idea to check weather and temperature forecasts before setting out tender plants. With the 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 air content. The roots of the plants you will be putting

Get Growing into your garden will need this oxygen to help them get off to a good start. A gorgeous May-bloomer now in full leaf in many yards and gardens in our area is the peony. This huge and often fragrant flower is a native of China, Asia, and the U.K. Peonies prefer cool climates and they require a winter chill for dormancy. Needless to say, Northwest Ohio (zone 5) is ideal for growing peonies. There are two types of peonies that are most common to our area the garden or bush type Paeonia hybrids and the tree peony Paeonia suffruticosa. The garden peony grows as a bush to about 18 to 36 inches. This peony produces blooms of

single, semi-double, double, Japanese, and anemone types. Garden peonies die back in the fall and grow back the following spring. Tree peonies grow as a woody shrub which loses its leaves in the fall but leave the woody stems through the winter. New foliage and flowers emerge from the stems in the spring. Peony blooms can range in colors from white, black, coral, yellow, cream, crimson, pink, rose and purple. Peonies prefer to grow in a sunny location and the best time to plant them is in the fall. Plant the divisions in a hole about 12 to 18 inches deep and 12 inches wide. Add compost to the backfill and a hand full of fertilizer (10-1010) in the bottom of the hole. Once a new peony is established, mulch the plant each spring with a 2” layer of organic matter and apply a low nitrogen fertilizer (5-10-10). During the blooming season, remove the spent flowers just above the foliage as soon as they fade. In the fall, remove the mulch around the base of the plant and

leave them un-mulched through the winter. Peonies need the winter chill for proper dormancy through the cold season. The peony received its name from Paeon, as legend tells us, who was a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Paeon proved to be such a bright, accomplished student that Asclepius grew jealous of him and decided to do away with him. However, before Asclepius could carry out the deed, Zeus saved him by turning him into the peony flower. For centuries, parts of the peony plant were used for a myriad of medicinal purposes in several Asian countries. In the language of flowers, the peony means shyness or bashful, but this neatly compact bush with its huge blooms is more of a “bold beauty” in the flower world and a gorgeous attraction in many yards and gardens.
