Search for new superintendent The Oregon school board on Thursday approved the resignation of Superintendent Dr. Michael Zalar, who is leaving to take the position of superintendent of the North Olmsted City Schools District in North Olmsted, Ohio. Zalar became superintendent of the Oregon City Schools District in 2008. Previously, he was principal of Clay High School for five years. The North Olmsted school board on Wednesday approved a three year contract with Zalar, effective Aug. 1. He will receive an annual sal- Dr. Michael Zalar ary of $132,500 in his new job. In Oregon, his annual salary was $119,000. School board member Jeff Ziviski said after the meeting that the board will hold a community forum at the Clay High School library at 7 p.m. on June 3 to discuss filling the superintendent position. “We want to get the public’s input, before we start looking at resumes and interviewing candidates, on what qualities they want to see in a new superintendent,” said Ziviski. The North Olmsted City Schools District has an enrollment of 4,100 students compared to 3,800 students in Oregon. North Olmsted has four primary schools, three intermediate schools, one middle school and one high school. Oregon currently has three elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. The population of North Olmsted, according to the 2010 Census, is 32,178, compared to 20,291 in Oregon. Oregon school board president P.J. Kapfhammer, who was elected to the board in 2011 following a heated campaign that was critical of Zalar and the school board, told The Press he was not surprised to learn of the resignation. “He has been here for five years, and that’s about average for a superintendent in the district,” said Kapfhammer. “He found a district he will be comfortable in and I am excited about the possibilities for Oregon. I believe we are going to hire the best superintendent. It always helps to have fresh

eyes and it will be an exciting time for us. He made a lot of hard decisions because of the cuts in funding from the state and he helped us survive. He will do well wherever he goes.” Ziviski, who was elected to the board in 2011 on a platform of transparency and change in the district, also wished Zalar well. “It’s a positive situation for all parties involved,” said Ziviski. “He will be able to take all the experience he has gathered in the Oregon school system as a principal and superintendent and apply it to his new district. For our school system, this is also a great opportunity to bring in a new leader with a different perspective.” Before being elected, Kapfhammer and Ziviski had been critical of the school board for approving pay raises of 12 administrators, including Zalar, who saw his salary soar from $119,094 to $130,220 per year at a time when the district was financially strapped. The raises touched off a firestorm of controversy in the community, particularly after the board had eliminated busing for Clay High School students. Comments from a community survey of the district reported in The Press the following year showed how the raises had taken a toll on the level of trust between the public and school officials. Zalar returned the $11,000 pay hike last July. “I take responsibility for the raise I received at a time when other cuts were being made and I apologize for that. I pledge to not let that happen again,” Zalar had said at the time. “He and I had some ugly times,” Kapfhammer said about Zalar. “We do not agree on a lot of things. In the end, he did what he did for the district. He is a good guy who was in a bad situation.” John Lasko, president of North Olmsted’s school board, said Zalar was one of 28 candidates who applied for the superintendent’s position, left vacant for a year following the retirement of Dr. Cheryl Dubski, the district’s popular superintendent. Zalar was then one of three finalists considered for the job. Zalar did well during the interview process, according to Lasko. “Resumes get your foot in the door. That’s all it does. But there’s no substitute for the interview, the face to face contact. That’s where you sink or swim. That’s where Dr. Zalar truly rose to the top of the class,” said Lasko.

Better late than never…Richard Friess, of Oregon, will receive his diploma from Bowling Green High School at a commencement ceremony on May 31. Friess, who left high school to serve in the U.S. Air Force, would have been a member of the class of 1953. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean)

60 years late on diploma By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer For most graduates, high school commencement is a time to reflect on the past, and look ahead to the future, and the impact one can make on the world. Graduation day will be no different for Richard Friess, though he’s sure to stand out from all the other “seniors” who will be receiving a diploma from Bowling Green High School on May 31. Friess, who turned 80 this year, left Bowling Green High School in 1951 to join the U.S. Air Force. Though he had no high school diploma, he was sent to Edmund Oklahoma State College to learn office procedures. He later was sent to teletype school in Friesing, Germany. He used his skills serving in Tripoli,

Libya for 18 months. After a brief return to the U.S., spent in Austin, Tex., he was sent to Casablanca, Africa for 12 months. In 1955, he was discharged and returned to Northwest Ohio. “I had gotten a GED, and I could have gotten my high school diploma then too, but at the time, I really didn’t think about it,” Friess said. Early in 1956, he met Carolyn Jesse in Toledo. They married in August 1957 and have enjoyed 56 years together, raising a son, Toby and a daughter, Tammy. They have two granddaughters, Brittany and Crystal, and two great-grandchildren, Paige and Gavin. Friess worked for 40 years, retiring from the Pennsylvania-Penn Central-Consolidated Rail Corporation as an office clerk and crew dispatcher in January 1995.

Where have all the impatiens gone?

NEW GUINEAS • Made for the shade • Mounded habit • A wide range of colors: red, white, purple, lavenders, oranges & salmons • Plant heights of 12�- 18� tall & 16�-20� spread • No maintenance


Are all impatiens susceptible?


Seed impatiens are under attack by a disease called “Impatien Downy Mildew�. Growers can supply disease free impatiens but the disease spores are carried by the wind and uncontrollable in the landscape. Impatiens planted in the landscape will most likely be killed by Impatien Downy Mildew. This disease affects only Impatiens Walleriana (regular impatiens) and Double Impatiens. There are several signs to watch for to know if the disease has affected impatiens. Plants will appear stunted in the landscape, often chlorotic and eventually will defoliate and die. Downy Mildew spores from affected plants can infect the soil and winter over and survive. Are all impatiens susceptible? NO! New Guinea and Sunpatiens make great alternatives for impatiens.

SUNPATIENS • Great for full sun & shade • V-shaped upright habit • Plant heights of 20�-30� tall & 30� spread • Top compact colors: deep rose, magenta, orange & white • Additional colors: lilac, blush pink & electric orange For more information contact Bench’s Greenhouse & Nursery, 18063 West State Route 105, Elmore, Ohio 43416, 419.862.3596.

Pre-trial hearing in June on mall lawsuit Two hearings have been scheduled in Wood County Common Pleas Court in the nuisance abatement complaint filed by the City of Northwood against the owner of the Woodville Mall. After a May 14 session, the parties agreed to a pre-trial hearing on June 18 at 2 p.m. and another hearing Aug. 8 on the complaint. The city filed a nuisance abatement complaint in January seeking to have the deteriorating structure torn down. The complaint contends the building is in vio-

lation of fire regulations and health department codes. The lawsuit was filed against Soleyman Ghalchi, of Great Neck, New York, who bought the mall for $800,000 in December, and the seller, Mehran Kohansieh, of Little Neck, New York as well as their respective companies, Ohio Plaza Shopping Center LLC and Woodville Mall Realty Management LLC. Bob Anderson, city administrator, said the city’s goal through the lawsuit is to work with the owner and expedite the demolition of the mall. “Our position is the final outcome will be the demolition of the mall,� he said. “We want to reach an agreement

that it will happen sooner rather than later.� The city has incurred expenses of maintaining retention ponds in the back of the mall property that collect run-off water from parking areas and the building. The city will likely seek reimbursement for its costs by having them added to the site’s property taxes, Anderson said. City officials have also proposed having the ponds and adjacent property donated to the city. With the closing of the Andersons store earlier this year, Sears remains the only operating business at the mall. Its building isn’t part of the city’s lawsuit.

Open house for medical facility June 1 By Larry Limpf News Editor Community Health Services is ready to unveil its newest facility to the public. The Fremont-based health care system will hold an open house June 1 from 1-4 p.m. at its location at 5734 Fremont Pike in Stony Ridge. Joe Liszak, chief executive officer of Community Health Services, said the Stony Ridge facility will be the ninth office CHS is operating in Henry, Seneca, Huron, Sandusky, and Wood counties. Cheri Diller, M.D., a family practice physician, has been hired for the new facility, which will also be staffed by an office employee and a nurse, Liszak said. A nurse practitioner and physician’s assistant will also be hired by this fall. “We plan to eventually have three doctors for the site,” he said. A separately owned full-service laboratory will also have office space at the site, which has nine exam rooms and one procedure room. A community room is also available for use by non-profit groups. The 6,800-square-foot, two-story building cost about $1.1 million to construct. CHS was awarded a grant by the Department of Health and Human Services to open a health center in Wood County. Operational costs are covered by the grant but CHS financed the construction expenses. Liszak said the Stony Ridge location in Troy Township will meet a public need. “Except for the City of Perrysburg, there are not a lot of physician offices in the Stony Ridge area,” he said. “This will open access for anybody who needs primary care.” Patients covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance or are self-insured

At the new Community Health Services in Stony Ridge are Annete Moore, Steve Fleckner, Mark Behnfeldt, Juile Rowe, Joe Liszak and Emily Brickner. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean) will be accepted, Liszak said. A sliding fee scale can be established for patients, including those who are employed but uninsured, he added. Those visiting the facility during the open house can fill out patient registration forms. Although it isn’t part of ProMedica, a non-profit health care organization that serves Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, Liszak said CHS has a “very good

working relationship with ProMedica.” A Farmer Savings Bank had a branch office located at the site. Liszak said CHS had considered renovating that building but decided it would have been too costly. “We wanted to have a presence in the community and give it a new building,” he said. “This is perfect for us, being in a high traffic area. We looked at another medical facility but it was out on a country road. We wanted the high visibility.” CHS was formed in 1970.

Tipsy Tow To help members and non-members celebrate safely this weekend, AAA Northwest Ohio is offering Tipsy Tow service for Memorial Day weekend from 6 p.m. May 25 through 6 a.m. May 26, from 6 p.m. May 26 through 6 a.m. May 27, and from 6 p.m. May 27 through 6 a.m. May 28. While AAA encourages party goers to designate a driver if they plan to consume alcohol this weekend, the Tipsy Tow service is available to assist those who find themselves in an impaired situation and need to get them and their vehicles home safely. To take advantage of Tipsy Tow, drivers should call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357), state that they need a “Tipsy Tow” and provide their name, home address, phone number and vehicle location. “Tipsy Tow is available to help northwest Ohioans celebrate the holiday safely while helping fulfill AAA’s mission of making roads safer for everyone,” said April Cochran, Vice President, Marketing and Public Affairs for AAA Northwest Ohio. Services that will not be provided as part of the Tipsy Tow program include requests for a vehicle start, flat tire change, gas delivery and/or taxi service. For trips longer than 10 miles, motorists can expect to be charged the towing company’s standard rate. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one alcohol-impaired death occurs every 45 minutes across the country, with alcohol impaired drivers contributing to one out of every three traffic deaths.

Happy Birthday Lucas The Toledo Zoo will hold a second birthday celebration for Lucas the African elephant June 1. At 10:30 a.m., Lucas will get his enrichment presents, which were handcrafted by ZOOTeens and zookeepers. At 1:30 p.m., he will enjoy a tasty elephant-sized cake the Zoo’s Catering Department prepared for him. Lucas has changed a lot since his birth two years ago, when he stood 36 inches tall and weighed 305 pounds. Today, he stands about 60 inches tall and weighs about 1,630 pounds – truly a big birthday boy. Some things stay the same, though. Lucas is still charming visitors with his favorite activities of chasing ducks that wander into his exhibit (with some adorable elephant trumpeting) and “helicoptering,” or spinning in circles. The birthday party, sponsored by McDonald’s, is free with regular Zoo admission. Learn more at toledozoo. org.

Walbridge council fills vacant seat By Larry Limpf News Editor Walbridge Village Council has filled a vacant seat. Council members voted during a special meeting Tuesday morning to appoint Lauren LaRoe to the seat vacated by Nathan Eikost, who resigned last month. Mayor Ed Kolanko then issued the oath of office to LaRoe, who was one of three persons interviewed by council’s personnel and human resources committee on May 17. Eikost resigned his seat after being sworn in as a police officer in the City of Rossford. In a letter to village officials, LaRoe states she has lived in the village for 2 ½ years and owns a small business. “As a small business owner in Walbridge, I understand the issues facing local businesses today,” she writes. Council had 30 days from Eikost’s resignation on April 23 to appoint someone to

the vacant seat or Mayor Kolanko would have had 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. LaRoe’s appointment is effective for the remainder of Eikost’ four-year term. Kolanko said he plans to run for the mayor’s seat in November to fill the unexpired term of Dan Wilczynski, who resigned earlier this year. The term expires at the end of 2015. During its regular meeting, village council approved an ordinance authorizing Kolanko to enter into an agreement with Signature Associates to market villageowned 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.

Expect travel delays By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Motorists traveling State Route 163 east of Genoa should expect detours and delays beginning next week. The state-hired contractor will shut down the bridge at Nissen Road for two days, May 30 and 31 for bridge repairs, said Theresa Pollick, spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Transportation’s District 2 office. The official detour route for drivers is to take State Route 51 to Route 105 and pick up Route 163 in Oak Harbor. The company, Shelly Construction , Thornville, O., won the contract for $1.58 million. ODOT workers have already begun forewarning drivers of the pending closing by posting a series of signs along the roadside between Oak Harbor and Genoa. The bridge is one of the larger parts of the project. After that work is completed, there will be intermittent delays on Route 163 between routes 51 and 590 until September, Pollick said. That work entails a number of stretches of road resurfacing. “Generally, when we have several projects in the area, the state will combine them for the bid,” Pollick explained. Construction season is moving into full swing along Ottawa County roadways. Workers are nearly done with a large scale bridge project on State Route 2 near the wildlife refuge. “Their goal is to finish the job before the end of May,” Pollick said.

Penta students get fire rig Penta Career Center unveiled a fire rig that was donated by the City of Toledo for use in the school’s Public Safety/EMT-Fire Science program. In attendance were (l-r) Mike Bell, mayor of Toledo; Ronald Matter, superintendent of Penta; Luis Santiago, chief of Fire & Rescue for the City of Toledo; and students of the Public Safety/EMT-Fire Science program. The donation will enable the students to experience the operations of a real fire rig as part of their curriculum. The students will use the rig to learn about pump and ladder operations, pump pressures, hose lays, and appliances. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean)

Oregon starts wellness program for staff By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor The City of Oregon has established a wellness program to promote a healthier workforce through the implementation of health and fitness programs for city employees. Council recently voted in favor of the program. The objective of the program is to encourage greater voluntary employee participation in health and fitness activities in Oregon gyms and health clubs. Similar programs are being adopted by both public and private sector employers and can result in a healthier workforce and lower absentee rates, fewer on the job injuries, and lower health care costs, according to City Administrator Mike Beazley. “We discussed this during our budget process as a project we were going to look at this year,” said Beazley. “As we talk to health insurance and workers compensation, and both public and private employers in the market, it’s really considered best practice to take steps along this line. It’s not a panacea. It doesn’t make everyone healthy, but it is considered a positive step in that direction. Health care costs are a considerable expense to the city, for our workforce, workers compensation, and lost time because of sick days. There’s good evidence out there that actions like this can and do lead to good results. They are hard to measure. We had a very robust plan similar to this at the county. We felt we were getting results.” The program will make use of tools and resources provided through the city’s health insurance program, Medical Mutual SuperWell, and programs available through the city’s EAP at Mercy Health Partners, and combine them with other health care screening and wellness activities that will be made available, according to Beazley.

He’s also been an active member of the community, helping with the Oregon Christmas Basket program for some 35 years. “And I’m still working, doing whatever needs to be done,” he said. He recently donated his time and talents helping with the relocation of a backyard playground set for a family in his church. “I’ve done a little bit of everything,” he said. “I like helping people.” It’s clear that, despite the lack of an official high school diploma, he has been successful by all accounts. “I have been truly blessed,” Friess said. Yet the fact that he didn’t get to graduate with his fellow members of the BGHS class of 1953 entered his mind now and again. “A bunch of the class members meet for lunch once a month,” he said. “At one of our gatherings, I said something about it to one of the classmates and he suggested I call the school. “So I did and the woman at the school told me I had to call Columbus. After being transferred from one department to another, I gave up on it,” Friess said. “A few days later, the Governor’s Office called me. The man suggested some options for getting a diploma, but I told him I wanted to graduate from Bowling Green High School. It was my school…I played football there. “Before I could make any more calls, Pat Carney, principal of Bowling Green Middle School called me to tell me he’d set it up for me to graduate Nov. 11,” Friess said. “Days later, the principal of the high school, Jeff Dever, called me telling me he’d set it up for me to graduate with the class of 2013 on May 31. “Mr. Dever told me he’d put me first in line, ahead of everybody, and that someone special will be presenting my diploma – so we’ll see.” Friess said. “I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been telling everyone, I think that diploma could make me a whole lot smarter.” In addition to his family, Friess will be joined by a number of his fellow classmates from the class of 1953. The graduation will be the culmination of a line of “blessings” that started last November when he and his wife went to Cancun with his granddaughter and her family, Friess said. In January, he was the guest of honor at a surprise 80th birthday party. And on May 22, accompanied by his daughter, he went to Washington, D.C. with Honor Flight Northwest Ohio.

The mandating of better health is something I am not in favor of.

The program will include scheduled health and wellness “lunch and learns,” an Oregon employee walking program, and similar activities. Lunch hour classes may also be conducted in the community room in fitness, yoga, cardio, or other health activities. The policy will also provide for reimbursement of up to $10 per month for participation in activities at local health and exercise club facilities. To be eligible for reimbursement, employees will have to use the facility two times per week for a month rather than just sign up for membership, according to Beazley. Employees seeking reimbursement must sign a three or six month agreement that spells out their obligation and entitles them to reimbursement after the period of agreement. The participating facilities are Snap Fitness, Mercy Center for Health Promotion and the YMCA in Oregon, said Beazley. “We did restrict it to Oregon facilities,” said Beazley. “This is not something that is available for those who join gyms. You have to go was well. Reimbursement is available, retrospectively, for those who participate. That’s what it’s for. If you want to join, you do that on your own dime. We think this is a long term investment. We are excited about it moving forward,” said Beazley. Council member Sandy Bihn asked if the city was discussing ways to address some employees’ high risk behaviors, such as smoking, and obesity, in the health insurance plan.

“If we are, then we really need to tell our employees and share that information with them so they know where we are with that kind of approach,” said Bihn. “That is something that would come up at the bargaining table in 2014 when our contracts are up for negotiation again,” said Beazly. “There are two ways of doing this: carrot and stick. The stick side has been harder to do on the public sector side. I don’t have a plan on that yet, but it’s something we’re actively engaged in. The public sector has dealt with this by doing this sort of program. Andersons and others have a little more flexibility, and have different rates for health insurance for those who join clubs, and participate in smoking cessation programs. We are taking baby steps on this. I don’t really have a next step in mind. But I have an open mind to it as the world evolves.” “My point is, if negotiations are next year, and there is any consideration for any of these, it would behoove us to have that discussion now,” said Bihn. “At least give employees’ a heads up as to the fact that it might be considered. Personally, I think it’s hard to say we negotiated this, and a month later it goes into effect. Then you really don’t have that time to make a determination of where you’re going to go with this.” “It’s less likely to be negotiated in the current collective bargaining environment,” said Beazley, adding that he’d like to monitor the program’s value over two years. Councilman James Seaman said getting people to change bad habits is “difficult to accomplish.” Councilman Jerry Peach agreed. “I think Mr. Beazley’s approach by offering incentives is the correct approach,” said Peach. “The encouragement of health,” said Council President Tom Susor, “is always a better thing. The mandating of better health is something I am not in favor of.”

Project ‘wish list’ of bridges is compiled By Larry Limpf News Editor At the request of the Wood County engineer’s office, the Lake Township trustees have approved a list of three bridges to be considered for replacement. Two of the bridges are on Lemoyne Road at Cedar and Dry creeks and the third is on Luckey Road at Henry Ditch, according to a resolution the trustees approved Tuesday. Richard Welling, a trustee, said all three were constructed through the Works Progress Administration when Franklin Roosevelt was president. He described them as well-built spans but not meant to handle the heavy trucks of today. Dan McLargin, township road supervisor, compiled the list, he said. The county engineer’s office is working on a list of bridge projects that it will prioritize, said James Carter, who chairs the board of county commissioners.

The commissioners plan to meet June 11 to discuss how the county’s allocation of revenues from casinos will be used. Last August, the commissioners opted to spend the first quarterly allocation of the revenues – about $110,000 – for bridge and road repairs. Earlier this year, the county received $468,092 from the Ohio Public Works Commission to assist with two bridge replacement projects – one on Stearns Road at the intersection of Pursell Road in Perry Township and another on Pemberville Road over Toussaint Creek in Troy Township. In other business Tuesday, the trustees agreed to begin formulating a policy for enforcing problems with tall grass on private property. Dave Miesmer, zoning inspector, informed the trustees tall grass issues in townships are covered by a separate section of the Ohio Revised Code than noxious weeds. The trustees also plan to discuss finding a replacement for Tom Hays, township solicitor, who has moved.

Í don’t know that we need one sitting here every meeting,” said Melanie Bowen, chairman of the board of trustees. ”But we do need legal advice.” Town hall meeting The county commissioners held a town hall-style meeting Tuesday at the Lake Township administration building, offering residents a chance to voice their concerns or ask questions. The closing of the Anderson’s store at the Woodville Mall as well as the mall’s deteriorating condition and that of the former Steve & Barry’s building site nearby is having a detrimental effect on other businesses in the area. Larry Sigler, whose wife owns the New 2 You re-sale store on Woodville Road, said the business has lost about $3,000 since the Anderson’s closed earlier this year. Without re-development of the abandoned sites, Sigler said he and his wife would probably close their store.

New start time for Starr school By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

So all of the elementary schools will be starting at 9:15 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m.

The school day for Starr Elementary School will start at a new time for the 201314 school year. Starr, which currently begins the day at 8:35 a.m., will change to 9:15 a.m. next year, the same starting time as Coy and Jerusalem Elementary schools. Last month, plans called for Fassett Junior High School and Eisenhower Intermediate School to change their start time from 7:40 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. But now, it has been decided to keep the start times at 7:40 a.m. “We’re pleased to say that only one school is actually changing their time,” Dean Sandwisch, the district’s business affairs director, said at a May 21 school board meeting. “So all of the elementary schools will be starting at 9:15 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. That will be wonderful for professional development, just for continuity. The rest of the schools are all staying the same.” Board member Jeff Ziviski said he has been getting calls from some parents concerned about the time it will take to drop their children off at different school buildings. Fassett Junior High School and Eisenhower Intermediate School were reconfigured for 2013-14 to cover different grades instead of both covering grades 6-8. Eisenhower was reconfigured for grades 56, while Fassett was reconfigured to house grades 7-8. For parents who will drop their kids off and pick them up at school each day, it could cause a problem to their routine and schedules, according to Ziviski. “I’ve had a few concerns from the community, with Fassett and Eisenhower now being separate grade levels, and not the same levels where parents like to drop their kids off and pick them up. They’re going to have kids in both schools now, so it’s going to make it a little more difficult to drop one off, get to the other one, keep the family time that they have and the current schedules they have. They’re concerned about that.” P.J. Kapfhammer said the time difference is not too great. “Quite truthfully, it would be a bigger dilemma if it was a 30 or 45 minute difference, then I have to drop one kid off and wait around and then drop the other one off,” said Kapfhammer. “Here’s the thing. It’s about a 10 minute difference, no matter how the traffic is between the two schools. You drop one off 10 minutes early. This isn’t going to be a perfect system. To me it’s more convenient. It’s only a 10 minute window. If it had been a 30-40 minute window, what do they do with the extra time?” “We do have breakfast available,” said Sandwisch, “so I think it’s going to be more calm in the morning because they’ll have a space to go in the cafeteria, have breakfast

there, then leisurely make it to their classes on time. The buses are going to be doing the exact same thing that the parents are going to be doing.” Ziviski said a 10 or 15 minute difference in start times may have been better for some of the parents. “P.J. talked about 40 minutes. Obviously, we wouldn’t have set it up that way,” said Ziviski. “But why not a 10-15 minute difference? What would that have done, what complications would that have thrown to the bus schedule?” “It would have added another tier to the bus schedule,” said Sandwisch. “Believe me, that’s the most complicated puzzle in the district. And we fight with times every year. And all of that has to do with our time available to run the routes. By adding a 15 minute differential there, it would have added another tier. I know it wouldn’t have been possible.” There will be an additional 12 stops for Clay High School students added to the route, said Sandwisch. “The state funding formula will reward us for having more ridership. Three tiers are more efficient than two tiers. It is going to be a nice welcome addition for the parents of those students,” said Sandwisch. “I definitely understand the concerns of the parents,” said Ziviski after the meeting. They have a unique opportunity to see their kids off to school and pick them up each day. That can give you another hour or two each day with your child. After looking at the logistics involved in setting the bus schedule, the best schedule was the one that was approved. Changing the time by a few minutes would have affected the entire schedule. It would have possibly impacted other schools’ start times, and possibly could have resulted in several more buses to be added to the routes, and without a doubt, would have added cost to the district.”

“EcoErek” seeking jeans & shoes Twelve-year-old Curtice resident, Erek “EcoErek” Hansen has once again launched his annual campaign to keep unwanted, stained, hole-y, out-of-style denim clothing items and unwanted, worn out, too-big, or too-small shoes of any kind, condition, color or size out of the local landfills. Erek’s mission is to provide an outlet for area residents to recycle these items. By doing so, he also helps out communities that have been hit by natural disasters and provides materials to manufacture items such as playground mulch and tennis courts. When denim and shoes are donated to EcoErek, the denim makes it to the “Cotton. From Blue to Green®” ( program, which turns old jeans into new housing insulation to be donated to natural disaster victims and the shoes are sent to USAgain (www.usagain. com), pronounced use-again, which collects household textiles, shoes and clothing for recycling, reuse and repurpose. It is important to him that the public is aware of our need to be protective of our Earth’s natural resources. This will be the fifth summer for Erek’s recycling drives. In the past 12 months, EcoErek has gained a non-profit status, raised funds to pay for shipping, appeared in “chickadee” magazine in an article titled

Hayes Lecture set

“Heroes of the Planet,” and appeared in the article “Earth Day 2013: Meet Three Kid Crusaders” on In 2012, he collected 5,019 denim items and 4,402 pairs of shoes. His goal for 2013 is 5,000 pairs of jeans and 2,000 pairs of shoes. Collectively over four summers, EcoErek has recycled more than 15,000 pairs of jeans and more than 7,000 pairs of shoes, which is enough denim to insulate over 30 homes. Erek will be on hand to collect denim and shoes of any kind, condition, color or size at Levis Commons, Perrysburg (in front of the Cinemas) on Saturday, June 1 from noon-6 p.m. The final drive of the year will be at The Future Wave, Oregon on Saturday, June 15 from 10-4 p.m. Drop boxes are available in three locations through Labor Day for donations during normal business hours. The locations include The Future Wave salon, 3324 Navarre Ave., Oregon and at Once Upon A Child stores at 194 E. South Boundary St., Perrysburg and 5644 Monroe Street, Sylvania. Anyone interested in holding a drive for either denim or shoes at their workplace or church in June, July or August may contact Erek at Keep track of Erek’s progress at www., and

For the fifth year, 12-yearold “EcoErek” Hansen, of Curtice, will be collecting unwanted denim clothing and shoes of any kind to be recycled. Learn more at www.


Lou Schultz, whose extensive collection of War of 1812 materials is the core of the current Hayes Museum exhibit, “War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier,” will be the guest speaker at a lecture June 2 at 2 p.m. in the Hayes Museum. Admission is free. Schultz’s interest in the war’s history began at an early age. In the third grade, his school visited sites related to the war including the Hayes Presidential Center. The inspiration of that trip led to a lifelong passion that included collecting artifacts and manuscripts from the war. The bicentennial of the War of 1812 has further ignited Schultz’s interest. “The War of 1812 is an exciting, but little-known chapter in Ohio history. This program will serve to heighten awareness of the importance of the War of 1812 in the history of our state and will serve as an introduction to the War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier exhibit currently on display at the Hayes Presidential Center.” Schultz says. Lecture attendees can view the exhibit before or after the lecture. Museum hours are noon-5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors age 60 and older, and $3 for children 6-12. The War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier is on exhibit through Oct. 6. Call 800-998-PRES or visit for more information. The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center is located at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues, Fremont.

Hot temperatures cause revised pool permit issues By Cynthia L Jacoby Special to The Press Humid temperatures earlier this week rekindled talk of pool permits in Genoa. The village planning commission met prior to the regular council meeting on Monday and discussed the renewed enforcement of pool permits for this summer, Village Administrator Kevin Gladden said. The village undertook a major awareness campaign last year to inform residents they needed pool permits for any pool larger than 12 feet in diameter and 18 inches tall. Fences are also required if the pool

sides measure less than 54 inches. The pool permit fee is a one-time fee of $25. The fence permit costs an additional $25. Violators can be cited into court on a misdemeanor charge for not following village code. “They have to comply by putting up a chain link fence or board on board fence,” Gladden said. “They can’t have a split rail fence. The point is to keep others from accessing it.” Village officials say they were a little lenient in the first year but say they will step up enforcement as the mercury soars

and the pools pop up across town. Safety is a chief reason for the push to keep the pool situation in line, the administrator said. Village officials met with some resistance last year when they began enforcing regulations requiring residents to install permanent fences for the temporary plastic pools set up in their yards. The most popular today are the large blue inflatable pools sold at most major stores. And those pools can be the most dangerous, Gladden said. Their flexible sidewalls increase the opportunity for accidents. Someone, especially a small child,

leaning on a side could easily be drawn into the water, increasing the drowning potentials, he explained. He recalled a time that he saw water flowing along Fourth Street during a dry spell and thought a water line had burst. Minutes later, he found that an inflatable pool in a yard nearby had collapsed. A woman trying to clean up the mess kept losing her footing as streams of water gushed out and knocked her down, he said. “Once those things get flowing you can’t stop them,” the administrator said.

Local residents honored at Owens GED graduation More than 50 area residents recently were honored at Owens Community College’s fourth annual GED Graduation Ceremony. Graduates received their Ohio High School Equivalence Diploma, also known as the General Educational Development (GED) Diploma, as part of the graduation ceremony. Also, several student class representatives addressed the graduates as keynote speakers during the event. Honor students were recognized with medallions. For 22-year-old Ronald Cooper Jr. of Toledo, achieving his GED Diploma is a step toward a new future. “I want to become a marine biologist,”

said Cooper, who intends to continue his educational journey in college. “Getting my GED Diploma has given me self-confidence and I now know that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.” GED graduates included Geri Brown, Danielle Camino, Phylicia Cattladge, Tiffany Collins, Ronald Cooper Jr., Arianne Custer, Amanda Davis, Christy Engelhardt, Jamal Gamble, Anthony Graham, Sarah Hatch, Cathy Hebert, James Humphries, Brandon Huntley, Ashley Hurst, Keisha King, Kison Kongkeo, Mobley Ronderrick, Vera Partlow, Yahana Ramsey-Evans, Leona Robinson, Nicole Robinson, Gregory Roman, Yazmin Ruiz, Christine Russell, Andre

Saunders Jr., Kourtney Seidwosky, Angel Tall, Antoinette Thomas, Rhonda Thomas, Melissa Trotzier, Brianne Wawrzyniak, Desiree Webster, Julie Williams, Stephen Williams and Madison Baum, all of Toledo; Linda Garcia of Northwood and Edith McCoy of Gibsonburg The GED examination was created with the goal of providing individuals who did not finish high school with an opportunity to earn an Ohio High School Equivalence Diploma and advance their academic and career aspirations. In order to earn an Ohio GED Diploma, students must pass all five subject areas that include language arts-writing, language arts-reading, science,

social studies and mathematics on their official examination. Owens’ ABLE (Adult Basic and Literacy Education) program is offered at no cost to students and provides individualized study plans for each student. ABLE classes are offered at multiple locations in Northwest Ohio, including the Owens Toledo-area Campus in Perrysburg Township, the Arrowhead Park Learning Center in Maumee and the Learning Center at The Source in downtown Toledo, among other locations including several ToledoLucas County Public Library locations.

Genoa Elementary PTO’s fundraising efforts fill budget gaps Think twice before downing that refreshing Capri Sun juice drink and then tossing away the pouch – you could be throwing away cash for your child’s school. In the Genoa School District, that cash amassed through a variety of fundraising projects will help go toward building a greenhouse behind Genoa Elementary in the coming year. Tough economic times have caused massive belt tightening on school budgets nationwide in recent years. The Genoa Elementary Parent Teacher Organization has responded by stepping up its assistance, and that means getting creative about ways to raise cash to ease the burden and sponsoring projects that leave a lasting imprint on the school system. An annual school carnival brings in more than $10,000. Market Days are also productive, as are company collection projects conducted throughout the year. A Capri Sun pouch collection is one of the newest ways to make money for the schools. The effects are actually two-prong, said PTO President Brandi Baez. “Kids are learning about recycling and the school earns some money for it,� she said. The experience reaches beyond the school campus. “We even have the kids

trained to bring in their pouches after a weekend birthday party. You see them coming to school with their bags full of pouches,� she said. Baez admits not all the collections are big money makers; it’s the combination of the efforts that make their work worthwhile. “When you find a penny, it doesn’t seem like much. But when you put it with a bunch of other pennies it adds up,� she said. “I have a great bunch of moms who work on all these projects – we couldn’t do it without them. I have one mom who handles the Capri Sun packets and she’s just wonderful. Those things can get really sticky,� Baez said. A popular and longstanding fundraiser is the Campbell’s Soup label collection, which has had moms divvying up labels among the kids. Class competition is fierce when prizes like pizza parties and ice cream treats are up for grabs among students. The Genoa PTO just recently rekindled its soup label collection. The organization had been concentrating on other programs that offered cash rebates such as Box Tops

for Education associated with food products and receipt collections such as those sponsored by Miller’s New Market. Campbell’s limits its rewards to catalogued items they provide. The offerings used to be things like gym equipment and general classroom supplies. Selection now, however, has expanded to include more technical supplies such as flat screen televisions, copy machines, laminators and other computer equipment that helps relieve the school budget, Baez noted. The school has amassed about 15,000 points so far. Members will leaf through a catalog of products to find supplies but have been eyeing such items as an iPod touch, Baez said. The school was already able to get one last year with proceeds from the fall gift wrap sale. The ultimate goal is to bring all the fundraising together to better the school environment. “The Genoa PTO is an entity unto itself,� said Genoa Schools Treasurer Bill Nye. The members handle their program, run their projects and keep their own books while working hand-in-hand with the school staff to assess needs.


I have a great bunch of moms who work on these projects...


By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press

Sometime during the school year, the PTO presents a donation check to the school system earmarked for special projects, he said. Last year, the group’s $23,000 donation funded a new shelter house, provided teacher name plates outside classroom doors in the new elementary building and paid for field trips at every grade level. The group had hoped to build a greenhouse with the last donation but fell short of completing that goal, Baez said, so focus will turn to the greenhouse construction in the new school year. The greenhouse will not only provide food for the cafeteria but will allow students and teachers to merge classroom and hands-on learning. “I think this will really help with the STEM learning at the school. That’s programs involving science, technology, engineering and math,� said Baez, who is a science teacher in the Fremont School System. “We really need to push more, integrate cross-curriculums.� Composting and other environmental projects will also heighten the experience. Eventually, Baez would like to see the high school FFA students share their knowledge with the youngsters. The high school students already run their own plant greenhouse through the school organization. “We’re going to try to involve the FFA. I think it’s a good thing,� Baez said.

Woodmore Schools to break ground for new elementary building By Larry Limpf News Editor A groundbreaking ceremony for the new elementary school building in the Woodmore School District will be held May 30 at 1:30 p.m. The new building, which will house pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade, will be constructed next to the present elementary building at 708 W. Main Street, Woodville. State, county, and local officials have been invited as well as former students and staff. Woodmore voters last year approved a 5.43-mill bond issue that will generate about $15.7 million in local property tax-

This Week in Government es and leverage about $7 million in OSFC funding for the new school. Voters had twice before rejected similar 37-year bond issues. Audit award for port authority The Wood County Port Authority has been recognized by the state for its audit report.

The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit that meets several criteria, including: the entity must file timely financial reports with the Auditor of State’s office in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and the audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations or weaknesses, significant deficiencies, or questioned costs. Demolition contracts Five more structures in Ottawa County

have been approved by the county commissioners for demolition under the Moving Ohio Forward program. The commissioners have approved demolition contracts for buildings at 521 Locust Street, Oak Harbor, ($5,500 Aboo Brothers Demolition, Ltd.); 429/429 Huron Court, Port Clinton, ($6,295 Jensen Construction); 315 Beech Street, Port Clinton, ($5,200 – Jensen Construction); 2337 E. State Road, Port Clinton, ($5,200 Jensen Construction), and 6170 N. Main Street, Williston, ($5,143 Marko Destruction & Crushing, LLC.)

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda Will not having Saturday mail negatively impact you? Why or why not?

MAY 27, 2013


The Press Poll 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.

Brenda Gorr Toledo “I don’t think it will negatively effect me and it actually would be one less day to find bills in your mailbox. Plus, I normally mail all my bills before Saturday.”

Randy Killen Toledo “I don’t think I would even notice. Some would if they have checks coming. But I don’t get government assistance or pay checks mailed to me, so it’s not like I've got anything to look forward to.”

A great field trip To the editor: We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the staff, specifically Lee and Michelle, at Stoneco Quarry in Clay Center, for the recent field trip we took to their facility. The sixth-graders at Genoa Middle School were welcomed with “red carpet” treatment for the three- hour field trip on May 15, as part of their rock and mineral study. The staff at the quarry treated us to hands-on activities to show coring and sampling, provided a cook-out style lunch for our 106 students, and gifted all students with a backpack for their mineral hunt. Geologists were on hand to provide expertise in the quarry’s native rocks and minerals and students were treated to a mineral hunt, where they were able to take home hundreds of samples of local minerals.

Oregon schools lauded To the editor: Thank you Oregon City Schools for the great five years of education you gave our son. It is with a heavy heart that he will transfer out of the district at the

end of this academic year. The administrators, teachers and staff of Starr Elementary are to be commended. Mrs. Jennifer Conkle is the most visible principal I have ever seen, being present at all school events on and off the school grounds, as well as greeting the children as they walk into school. As an educator, I know the importance of teaching the whole child and the teachers at Starr do just that. I would also like to extend my thanks to Mrs. Robin Sneed and the Gifted Program housed at Eisenhower. My son loved the critical thinking activities and learning Russian every Tuesday. He called it, “Being home schooled by a really cool mom.” I am happy the voters chose to renew

Remembering a friend of Maumee Bay/Lake Erie By Sandy Bihn My work on Lake Erie issues will always be inspired by commercial fisherman, Frank Reynolds, who died recently. Frank was the most knowledgeable person about the waters and fish of Maumee Bay. He was vigilant, watching these waters year round, observing and taking pictures of dead fish, foam, discoloration and more. He would take pictures and share them with me and the Lake Erie Center. This quiet gentle man was an engineer who chose to fish rather than go to an office everyday. I met Frank sometime in the 1990’s when we worked on where to place dredged sediments from the Toledo shipping channel. The area for the sediments was filling up. Neighbors formed the Maumee Bay Association which evolved into Western Lake Erie and now Lake Erie Waterkeeper, Inc. Frank frequently attended the monthly meetings and testified at hearings. He was the first president of the Waterkeeper and permanently became President Emeritus. Frank would come over regularly with an old study about the number of perch/fish or reports about monitoring Maumee Bay. He complained about the noise and emissions from the FirstEnergy Bayshore power plant when they added the pet coke unit. He talked to BP about its intake fish kills. He was concerned about blowing taconite that put red dust on many homes in his neighborhood. He was one of the first people to report the “fish flu” that killed many fish. He was the eyes of Maumee Bay. He would inform - I would report. Frank testified at open lake disposal and other hearings. He attended the annual Great Lakes Fishery Commission meetings and complained about the failure to count fish in Maumee Bay and the Maumee River. The counts started near Metzger Marsh, missing the huge Maumee fishery. His observations were underscored and enhanced by charterboat captain Paul Pacholski, who told me that he had to take Ohio Department of Natural Resources staff out in his boat to physically see the walleye spawning in large numbers in Maumee Bay before they believed the walleye spawned here. Frank knew all the players who helped the bay/lake recover in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He regularly took Peter Fraleigh, for whom the University of Toledo Lake Erie Center is named, out sampling in the bay. But fish kills at the Bayshore plant

Guest Editorial

Frank Reynolds checking his fishing net. (Press file photo by Ken Grosjean) were Frank’s primary concern. I always found it ironic that at the same time the ODNR kept reducing catchable allowances and locations for commercial fishermen, the more than one billion larval fish and 55 million small fish killed annually received no ODNR or Ohio EPA assessment for more than 30 years. Frank met with Ohio EPA and ODNR administrators and Ohio elected officials to look at the number of fish killed in the Bayshore intake but it fell on deaf ears. Frank would often bring a jar of lar-

val fish to the Waterkeeper meetings that he said he ‘scooped up ‘ in the Bayshore power plant intake that day. He would talk about millions of fish getting pulled into the intake through large holes in screens that failed to protect the fish. After three years of hearing his frustration on getting something done about the fish kills, I made a permit request to Ohio EPA and found that the 1970’s permit was routinely renewed every five years with no studies or questions. When I asked for a copy of the original permit. I was told it was confidential. Mayor James Haley tried to get it, the plant refused. Six months later Ohio EPA provided a copy of the permit which verified the massive fish kills. Frank was right. In 2004, we had a press event where Frank took reporters on his boat and showed them the intake where the fish are killed and cast a net that brought in fish headed for death in the intake. This was front page news in the Blade the next day and the story was on television as well. Finally the fish kills were getting attention. At about the same time, fish kills in power plant intakes were getting attention on the east coast which resulted in Clean Water Act requirements to assess and reduce the kills. Here are some excerpts from testimony Frank made at a fish kill hearing by Ohio EPA in 2009: “I have lived and worked (out of my fisheries buildings) within a half-mile of the plant 17 years before the Bayshore plant was built in 1951. The following comments are based on my experience as a commercial fisherman, fisheries specialist, and biological researcher. My comments focus on the need for building a cooling tower(s) .... “The Bayshore power plant has killed fish, degraded the Maumee Bay waters, spawning grounds, nursery and general food supply. Before 1952, the nearshore area in Maumee Bay was a ... prosperous commercial and sports fishing area for yellow perch, bass, carp and catfish which continued until about 1968. After 1952 there were smaller and smaller catches until in 1968 ODNR closed commercial fishing in Maumee Bay. In the 15 years from 1952 to 1968, the loss of fish in Maumee Bay was significant. In 1953 just after the Bayshore intake channel was dug, I commercially fished at the end of the channel where the water was 28’ allow coal boats to unload.

Yellow perch were so abundant, I could not sell my whole catch. At that time the power plant was a single unit and used about a quarter of the water it uses today. Yellow perch were so abundant in the intake channel that they clogged the power plant intake screens many times and nearly caused the plant to shut down. The yellow perch problem in the intake screens went on for about nine months a year.” Today three of the four units at Bayshore are closed, mainly because of competition from natural gas. Frank did not live to see the numbers of fish come back. An email from a Waterkeeper member summarizes my feelings, “Someone once said that every time a person dies it’s like a library of unique and precious books burning down. Frank’s books were dedicated to Maumee Bay/Lake Erie and I’ll miss him.” I will be asking the waterkeeper board for ways to always remember Frank and his worthy work. Sandy Bihn is executive director of the Lake Erie Waterkeepers Association.

Northwood senior achieves 13-year perfect attendance By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer

Being there every day, I never really had to catch up on work that I missed. I knew when I was on college visits or school trips — both excused absences — I had to work to catch up.

Four…three…two…one. Like most seniors, Allison Coy was counting down the days until the last day of high school. The Northwood senior was not just looking forward to graduating, starting a summer job at the Toledo Zoo and then going off to college in the fall…she was wrapping up a perfect attendance record that spanned 13 years in Northwood Schools. In the beginning, Alli got up, got ready and went to school each and every day under the guidance of her mom, Leeanne LaForme. “When I was in around the third or fourth grade, I remember there was a fifth grader who went all the way through elementary school without missing a day and got a $25 gift card,” she said. “I thought, I only had a couple of years left, and I could do that too. “When I said I was sick, Mom said, ‘Go to school, if they send you home, that’s ok,” Alli said. “That happened only once in fourth grade. Our whole family was sick, and it got passed around. “But I was there most of the school day, so it didn’t count against my attendance,” she said. “It’s not that she went to school sick all the time, the truth is, she just doesn’t get sick,” said her mom, Leeanne. “And when she does happen to get sick, it’s very shortlived.” After achieving a perfect attendance record in elementary school – and scoring a gift card and a certificate – Alli resolved

to continue the streak in middle school. Perfect attendance in high school had its own allure and reward. “In high school, if you go without missing a day of school, you get to exempt one of your exams for the semester,” she said. “For seniors, for second semester, if you miss under three days of school and get under three tardies, then you can exempt every exam in every class that that you have a B or higher in. “I had a B or higher in all my classes other than pre-calculus, and I used my perfect attendance waiver for that, so I didn’t have to take any exams,” she said. Showing up every day, along with diligence and hard work, also helped Alli achieve an overall grade point average of 3.642, she said. “Being there every day, I never really had to catch up on work that I

Allison Coy missed. I know when I was on college visits or school trips – both excused absences –I had to work to catch up.” Her attendance, along with years of volunteering with the ZooTeen program, helped her land her summer job. “I went into the school office last week and the secretary said the zoo had called to ask about

my school attendance,” Alli said. “She said that the person from the zoo had never heard of anyone going that long without missing any school.” Asked if she’ll strive for perfect attendance at Ohio Wesleyan, where she will study zoology, Alli said, “I don’t know…I’ll probably try to get to everything unless I’m extremely, extremely sick.” On May 23, at Senior Awards assembly, Alli received a plaque in commendation of her perfect attendance. “It’s very rare and equally impressive,” said Northwood High School Principal Jason Kozina. “In my nine years in administration, I’ve occasionally seen perfect attendance throughout high school, but never throughout a 13-year school career.” Alli also received the honor of being named the Class of 2013’s Outstanding Citizen. “Each year, the faculty of Northwood High School meets during the month of May to select a graduating senior for the honor of Outstanding Citizen,” Kozina said. “The faculty determines this award based on a demanding set of criteria, including leadership, service, courtesy, honesty, tolerance and other attributes. Our staff considers this an extremely important award and gives it their most serious consideration.” The daughter of Leeanne LaForme and Randy Roslin, Mike Brice and the late Kevin Coy, Alli is a member of the National Honor Society and played varsity soccer and track all four years. She is the recipient of a Branch Rickey Scholarship at Ohio Wesleyan. “I searched the Internet hoping to find her a scholarship but the only one I found was from a car dealer in California,” Leeanne said.

Genoa High School seniors honored at Sunday dinner By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Genoa High School seniors received end-of-year academic honors at their first ever sit-down recognition dinner Sunday night. The dinner, at which school awards and college scholarships were announced, was organized by the fledgling Genoa Academic Committee. The group was formed this school year, and its goals are numerous, ranging from providing additional funding for academic needs not addressed by the district because of financial constraints; establishing a student-based tutoring program; promoting and enhancing the technology program and recognizing students with incentives to enhance academic success. Boosting the reward system is what led to the end-of-the-year banquet. In the past, senior recognition occurred at an in-school assembly. “This is the first time the parents have had the opportunity to be there and be part of the event,” said Cari Buehler, assistant high school principal. “We’re really excited about it.” The estimated 60 students gathered with family at the high school/middle school cafeteria. The Genoa Education Association helped out by paying for the student meals. Family members attending paid $10 each, according to Genoa Academic Committee President Kellie Szymanski. Szymanski said the committee grew out of the frustration experienced among administration and parents over budget cuts made in challenging economic times. “They didn’t have the funds to bring

Szymanski, a former third grade teacher herself as well as the mother of two high school boys, understood the situation. She proudly supports the sports programs and other school organizations but also wanted to see academics get the boost it deserves. “I’d like to see Genoa be known for its academics,” said Szymanski, noting the

teachers and students are all top rate. So Szymanski, with the assistance of Buehler and others, conjured up the idea of the Genoa Academic Committee. “It’s basically like a PTO for the high school. We’ve had real nice support,” said Szymanski. “We want to be a huge proponent to make sure they (students) know we are proud of them.” To date, there are about 35 active members.

has been on organizing, feeding excitement among students with incentives, such as ice cream dessert bars for good grades and the recognition dinner, and fundraising for larger projects. GAC members have also formed a partnership with Rayz Café in downtown Genoa, which sponsored a couple of Rayz Days, where 10 percent of profits during a specified night went to the GAC. And to add a little fun to the mixture, there’ll be a chance to drop teachers, coaches and others in a dunk tank at the Genoa Homecoming on May 31. The GAC will also be able to seek out grants from Walmart, Meijer and other companies once the organization receives its 501 tax status. Those monies will be key in the group’s chief pursuit to help better the technology program throughout the high school building, Szymanski said. But they aren’t forgetting the teens either. GAC plans a Back to School Dance at the high school in August to kick off the 2013-14 school year. “We don’t want to do what the other boosters are doing so we don’t step on any feet,” she said. The GAC also serves as a support system for parents, keeping them abreast of what is happening in the school and what issues can affect their child’s school experience. Several staff members are GAC members. Meetings not only focus on the group’s activities but offer tips-of-the-month for parents, provide website information and help families with college-bound students connect with scholarships. “The scholarships are out there if you are willing to work for it. You’ve got to do the research.”

Education Published fourth week of month.

Maritime Academy named High Progress School of Honor Renee Marazon, Superintendent, The Maritime Academy of Toledo, along with teachers, staff, and cadets recently unveiled a banner from the Ohio Department of Education recognizing The Maritime Academy as a “High Progress School of Honor.” The academy was one of only 90 schools in the state and the only school in Lucas County to earn the award this year. Honored schools have sustained high academic achievement and made substantial progress while serving a significant number of economically disadvantaged students. The Department of Education named 38 High Performing Schools of Honor and 54 High Progress Schools of Honor. “These schools are proud examples of what can happen when principals, teachers, parents and community members come together believing that all children can learn,” said Dr. Richard A. Ross, superintendent of public instruction. “Teachers in this year’s 90 Schools of Honor uniformly believe that all children can learn despite the challenges presented by their backgrounds and experiences. What they have done is working. I am urging them to help

other Ohio schools learn how they can overcome their challenges as well.” The “High Progress Schools of Honor” award follows Maritime Academy jumping four-letter grades on the 2011 – 2012 State of Ohio Report Cards to earn an Excellent Rating. “I cannot say enough about our teachers, staff, and cadets who made this possible. The School of Honor award is their award,” said Marazon. “We have over 200 students at our school and 80 percent are at or below the U.S. poverty level. But they did not let that stop them. Over the last year our cadets and teachers committed themselves to improving academic performance. We instituted an after-school program designed to help each student with reading and math enrichment. This proves that students can excel regardless of the economic or other obstacles they face in life.”

J.D. Bergman wins U.S. Open title, seeks Olympics By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer

I really hope that it does wrestling justice.

It’s been quite a run for former Oak Harbor wrestler J.D. Bergman. Last month in the U.S. Open in Las Vegas, he won his 96 kilogram weight class, and more recently, he took part in the “The Rumble on the Rails” between the United States, Iran and Russia at Grand Central Station in New York City. The three countries are uniting to help raise awareness and spread the word regarding wrestling’s standing in the Olympics. After the International Olympic Committee voted in February to remove wrestling as an event from the 2020 Games, there has been a widespread movement amongst the wrestling community and its supporters to pressure the IOC into keeping wrestling in the Olympics. Bergman, who hopes to compete at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, said. “I was in Bulgaria when that decision was made. We didn’t really believe it at first, it was extremely surreal. It didn’t make any sense. “It didn’t seem like there was much hope initially,” Bergman continued. “With the U.S. and Russia and Iran, we’ve done some marketing. The way Iran, Russia and the U.S are uniting for a single cause, I don’t think these countries have ever done that.” Currently, wrestling is one of eight sports fighting to fill one spot in the 2020 Games. The IOC board will meet May 29 in Russia to draw up a shortlist before a final decision is reached in September. Bergman has made the decision to continue wrestling instead of retiring. Last Sep-

flexibility and to reduce the wear and tear on his body. Bergman has also had the unique experience of acting in a movie called Foxcatcher, set to premiere later this year. The movie, featuring stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell, details the life of John du Pont, a paranoid schizophrenic who killed wrestler Dave Schultz, a 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist who is revered in the sport. “I got in touch with a wrestler who was working on the story,” Bergman said. “I pulled some strings and made an impromptu video and got a callback. I said in that video that my Uncle Joe (Bergman) made t-shirts honoring Dave’s memory (in 1996) and how much of an honor it would be to now be in the feature film about Schultz.” Bergman is hoping that the movie can help to raise awareness and create some momentum behind wrestling being an Olympic sport in 2020. “I really hope that it does wrestling justice,” Bergman said. “We’ve already reached out to Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. (Ruffalo) is an excellent actor and an extremely nice guy.” Bergman says a documentary called Ithaka is coming out that follows the lives of the wrestlers competing at the Ohio Regional Training Center. A link for the trailer can be found on YouTube. To keep up with Bergman’s progress, he can be followed on Twitter at JDBergmanUSA or visit his Facebook page “J.D. Bergman’s Olympic Dream 2016.” To sign a petition advocating for the inclusion of wrestling as a sport in the 2020 Games, visit or

tember, he traveled to Canada to do some soul searching. He stayed with a friend, his wife and their six children and used the opportunity to decide what he wanted to do with his life. “I was leaning towards retiring,” Bergman said. “I decided to go up there to pray, read the Bible and look for direction of the next step of my life. I was pretty surprised (with my own decision). On paper, it seemed like retiring and going after a few of the other passions I have in life made more sense. Being in less pain and going into the ‘real world’ (was a possibility). Acting, television, public speaking, youth ministry and having a wife and kids are things that I’m extremely passionate about, most of which I have experience in and want to pursue. “God wants to give us the desires of our heart when we are living for Him, and one of my desires is to be the best in the world at wrestling. I don’t have to stop wrestling, I just have to change the training a little bit to take care of my body.” As a result, Bergman has decided to adopt a healthier lifestyle, which includes a better nutrition and sleep schedule. He’s

Howard invited to World University Games Team Trials Rising Florida State senior forward Natasha Howard (Waite) accepted an invitation to participate in the 2013 USA Basketball Women’s World University Games Team trials at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. Howard and Maryland center Alicia DeVaughn were added to the 33-player selection pool last week. Howard is a three-year starter for the Seminoles who is coming off a an All-ACC First Team season in 2012-13 where she averaged 12.7 points and team-bests in rebounds (7.5) and blocks (1.5) while shooting 49 percent from the floor. Howard has 26 career double-doubles, including an 18-point, 18-rebound game she tallied at Georgia Tech last season. Howard was an All-ACC Third Team selection and an ACC All-Defensive Team member in 2011-12, in addition to earning ACC All-Freshman accolades in 2010-11. The 2013 World University Games (WUGs) women’s basketball competition will be held July 8-15 in Kazan, Russia. Organized by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) and held every other year, the WUGs is a multi-sport competition open to men and women who are between the ages of 17 and 24 (born 01/01/89 through 12/31/95). The USA Basketball women’s team will be comprised of U.S. citizens who are currently enrolled in college and have remaining eligibility. Oklahoma’s Sherri Coale is the U.S. team’s head coach and her assistants are Brian Giorgis (Marist), Coquese Washington (Penn State), Matt Corkery (American), Bobbie Kelsey (Wisconsin) and Matilda Mossman (Tulsa).

Vets, Blessitt, hosting Detroit Tigers trip The Vietnam Veterans of America, Greater Toledo Chapter, is sponsoring a bus trip to Comerica Park to see the Detroit Tigers play the Baltimore Orioles on June 19. Game time is 1 p.m. in Detroit. Gene Shurtz, treasurer of the local chapter, said tickets for the game and bus trip are available to not only veterans, but also the general public. “We have announced the baseball game trip to our Vietnam veterans, and to the local VFW and American Legion organizations, and now we want to let everyone know this is a great opportunity to take their child or grandchild to a major league game,” said Shurtz. “We could certainly use a little help filling up the bus.” The chartered Lakefront Lines bus seats 56 passengers. The cost of the bus trip is $55 which includes a game ticket in the lower reserved section, bus fare, and a free hot dog and pop at the game. On the bus there will be prizes to give away from local merchants. The bus will depart from Mathews Ford, Oregon. Perhaps the biggest highlight will be the chance to meet former Detroit Tigers players, such as Ike Blessitt, who will be riding the bus to the game and Tom Matchick who is scheduled to be at Mathews Ford to greet those going on the bus trip. At the stadium,

Stritch earns title share as coach, players honored By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer The sectional tournament was a downer for the Cardinal Stritch Catholic baseball team. The Cardinals lost to Toledo Area Athletic Conference rival Ottawa Hills 11-7 in eight innings in the Division IV sectional championship. “We were down the whole game and scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to tie it up,” Stritch coach Craig Meinzer said. “Ottawa Hills scored four runs after having the bases loaded with no outs, and we committed two errors in the eighth.” Meinzer said that while the loss was deflating, he was impressed by the way the Cardinals battled. “We took some strides, just the competing aspect,” he said. “They’re starting to realize that now, instead of dropping their heads they realize they have to keep competing when something bad happens. We still have to find a way to get over the hump and believe in ourselves. The fact they didn’t quit shows we’ve grown up as a program.” The Cards have done more than redeem themselves — they are champions for the first time in a decade. The Cards, now 12-14 overall and 102 in the TAAC, beat Gibsonburg, 9-0, on Monday to win at least a share of the TAAC championship. A lot of the non-league losses have been to Division I teams. This is the first baseball championship since 2003 and the first boys’ championship in any sport since football in 2006. Ottawa Hills has two league games left, so if the Green Bears lose one, Stritch will be sole owners of the championship hardware. Stritch is done for the season, so Meinzer's team is just sitting back and waiting. “We can salvage the season. A state championship is always the ultimate goal, but we still have the TAAC championship...It would solidify our program if we could come out on top, with the competi-

tion there is in this conference. “We have a lot of good young kids in the program. After this year we need to keep things rolling and hope TAAC championships keep coming on a consistent basis.” Meinzer was honored by his colleagues as TAAC Coach of the Year. First team players are seniors Ryan Ballesteros and Robbie Bekier. Second team selections are seniors Cody Kuch and Conner Kelsey. Honorable Mention picks are seniors Kyle Smrekar and Eric Richardville and junior Jake Empie. The Cards closed the season with a tough 3-2 loss to Coach Mark Nell's Anthony Wayne squad, another D-I program. Meinzer said “Brooks Gasser threw and threw well and Chase Dearing came in and got the last two outs.” Overcoming rough start The Cardinals got off to a rough start this season. Stritch finished 10-12 and 7-5 in the TAAC last year. “At the beginning of the year we were not playing very well and the chemistry was bad,” Meinzer said. “It’s nice seeing them come together and believe in themselves. The senior leadership stepped up, and the guys who have been doing bit parts have done a wonderful job filling in for us.” Stritch’s top two pitchers have been senior right-handers Bekier and Kuch. Bekier is 3-1 with a 3.09 ERA in 34 innings with 32 strikeouts and a four-to-one strikeout to walk ratio. He gave up seven earned runs in 6.1 innings in the tournament loss to Ottawa Hills, which downgraded his numbers. “He missed eight games due to a spring break trip, but he’s had a really good year,” Meinzer said. “He’s hitting his spots this year. He’s learned how to pitch since last year and he has a little bit more confidence on the mound in tight situations. He’s hitting the ball well. He was batting .405 and he had a couple hits in the sectional final.” Kuch is 3-2 with a 2.65 ERA in 31.2 innings, with 17 strikeouts and 15 walks. “He stepped up last year and we relied on him heavily this year with Robbie be-

ing gone two weeks,” Meinzer said. “He pitched a lot at the beginning and did a nice job throwing for us. Cody really competes on the mound every time he’s out there.” Junior pitcher Jake Empie is 1-6 with a 3.58 ERA, with losses to bigger schools Springfield, Maumee, Start and Fremont Ross. He has given up 15 earned runs in 29.1 innings, with 20 strikeouts. “He comes in during some tough-luck situations in the sixth and seventh innings against D-I opponents,” Meinzer said. “His record doesn’t show what he can do on the mound. He’s going to be pretty good on the mound next year. He’s been pretty good this year, but he’s going to be very good next year.” Pitcher Sean Killian fills out the top four with one win and no losses, a 2.53 ERA in 19.1 innings and 11 strikeouts. The Cardinals, who have a .252 team batting average, are led by Bekier, who is batting .436 with 11 RBIs, Kuch is batting .351 with 10 RBIs. Senior catcher Ryan Ballesteros is the No. 2 hitter with a .423 average, one home run and 21 RBIs. Ballesteros doubled and scored in the sectional final loss. “He’s got a lot of pop in his bat,” Meinzer said. “He’s come through for us a lot and been our most consistent hitter. He’s caught every game but two, and to be able to carry that batting average has been a good thing for the team.” Senior shortstop Conner Kelsey, who bats leadoff after batting in the ninth spot a year ago, is hitting .375 with a .525 on-base percentage. “He’s a really good two-strike hitter,” Meinzer said. “He took that confidence he gained last year and took it into this year.” Senior second baseman Kyle Smrekar, who bats either seventh or eighth, is hitting .319 with a .483 on-base percentage to go along with 13 RBIs and seven stolen bases. “He’s come through with a lot of big hits for us and he’s made a lot of really good defensive plays,” Meinzer said. “He has created a lot of double plays for us defensively.”

Coach Wamer, Erin Gyurke honored by Three Rivers By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Clay’s girls’ track and field team didn’t win the championship at last Wednesday and Friday’s Three Rivers Athletic Conference meet at Central Catholic, but it wasn’t for lack of effort. Notre Dame Academy repeated as the girls’ team champion, followed by Whitmer and Clay coach Scott Wamer’s Eagles. “To be honest, we thought we were going to compete for a championship,” said Wamer, who was named the TRAC Girls Coach of the Year by the coaches following the meet. “Our 300-meter hurdler had the fastest time going into the meet, but she fell during the prelims. We had some bad luck leading into the meet as well. To have a third-place finish with everything that was going wrong, we were pretty excited about that. Our girls had a really good meet.” Clay junior Erin Gyurke, who won the 1,600 and 3,200 and helped the Eagles’ 4x800 relay team to a first-place finish, was named the meet’s outstanding female track athlete. She had personal best times in both individual events.

“She went from 5:20 to 5:10 in the mile, and she went from 11:21 to 11:17 in the two-mile, but wasn’t pushed a whole lot,” Wamer said. “She’s a fierce competitor. She was eighth in the state in cross country in the fall, and she started late with (the track team). She brings a lot of fire, a lot of leadership to my young distance girls. She gets on the track, she’s a front-runner. She sets the pace and if you’re going to beat her, you’re going to have to stay with that pace.” Gyurke teamed with Hanna Hess, Emilie Roman and Haley Hess to win the 4x800. “We won that handily,” Wamer said. “I expected it to be a tough race between Notre Dame and Central. Our girls really stepped up and ran their fastest time of the year. (9:44.30). Sophomore Grace Winckowski won the 100 hurdles in 15.92. “I was thrilled to death,” Wamer said. “Being a hurdles coach, I’m really liking what I’ve seen from Grace, her development. She’s working harder during the week and she’s seeing that it pays off on the weekends. I’m excited for Grace right now. If she stays on pace, she’s going to have an opportunity to hopefully run the next two weeks.”

Senior Nicole Breeden won the discus with a throw of 136-2, well short of her season-best throw of 142-7. “She’s one of the best discus throwers in Ohio,” Wamer said. “She was fourth in the state last year as a junior and she has signed to throw for the University of Cincinnati next year. She got a nice scholarship for a track athlete. She’s the No. 1 thrower in the district and the region, and she’s in the top five in the state right now.” Freshman twins Haley and Hannah Hess had their typical duel in the 800, with Haley winning the meet in 2:20.97 to Hannah’s runner-up time of 2:22.07. “They have a pretty good rivalry,” Wamer said. “When you have two girls who are that competitive and then you throw in that they’re sisters, every practice is like a meet. They don’t like to lose competitions on the track. It is fun watching them train with each other. They are outstanding kids and outstanding student-athletes.” Clay will compete in the Division I district meet Thursday and Saturday at St. Francis de Sales. “I expect a lot of our girls to have a chance to move on to regionals,” Wamer said.

Oregon hires former Woodmore football coach Mike Lee By Melissa Burden Special to The Press The Oregon school board, during a special meeting on Thursday, announced the hiring of former Woodmore High School head football coach Mike Lee to lead the Eagle’s football program. The news comes on the heels of an announcement in April that Mike Vicars, who led both Delta and Genoa high schools to state playoffs and semifinal appearances, would not be accepting the assistant principal and head coaching positions he initially had accepted in January. Vicars has since been hired as a middle school principal in the Pike-Delta-York district as well as Delta’s football coach. Lee taught health and physical education at Woodmore for over seven years. He was hired as Woodmore’s football coach in 1992 and resigned the position in 1998. Lee went on to teach junior high and high school health and physical education in the Fostoria Community Schools for eight years, serving as the high school’s

athletic director for two years. Lee’s brother Jeff, was Clay’s football coach for eight seasons, resigning in 2006. Lee is currently the Health Education, Personal Fitness and Weight Lifting Instructor at Lake Wales High School, located in central Florida. He has spent seven seasons as the Highlander’s receiver coach and was to be the offensive line coach this season. “I am very excited to be coming to Clay,” Lee said. “Here is the thing, being the coach at Clay has been something I have wanted to do for a very long time. It is the job I always wished I had gotten. When Vicars was hired, I never even got the chance to apply. When he resigned, I knew

it was my time to jump in and go for the job. It was like it was a sign.” Lee said he is unsure at this time what his teaching position will be in the district. The board and the new coach will also be talking about his salary within the next week as well, he said. Lee is married to Jeanette. The couple has three children: Becky, a teacher at Starr Elementary School, Tracy, a teacher in Sarasota, Florida and Jackie, a teacher at Elmwood Elementary, in Bloomdale, Ohio. “I am hoping to bring a winning tradition to Clay,” Lee said. “More importantly, I want to make the community proud of our program.”

School board member Jeff Ziviski said after the meeting that Lee will be a great addition to the school’s staff. “He has over 25 years experience and will bring a great deal of knowledge and new ideas to our program,” Ziviski said. “Over the next couple weeks, he will be putting together his staff. We don’t know those details yet. Some names may be familiar, but I expect some new faces will be added to the staff. In the end, he will be surrounded by coaches who share his philosophy and vision. It’s the fresh start and perspective that our program needs. Friday nights in Oregon will be energized this fall. Everyone is excited.”

Students construct soccer building During this past school year, 100 high school students at Penta Career Center have been constructing a 2,200 square-foot soccer building as part of their career training. The building, a contracted project for the Eastwood Schools, is located at 4900 Sugar Ridge Rd., between Luckey and Lemoyne roads in Pemberville. “Most school years, our students construct a house as part of their senior class project, however, this year we did not have a house project but instead we had the opportunity to construct a building for Eastwood Schools,” says Kevin McCann, supervisor of the Construction Trades programs at Penta. “This project was valuable for the students so they could gain hands-on experience working in construction.” The two-story soccer building will house concessions, a press box, restrooms and storage. Special features include a twopart truss system; fire retardant materials; three large windows on the second floor to view games; decorative wainscoting and a full brick front on one side of the building. Students in Penta’s Construction Carpentry, Electricity, Remodeling, Masonry, HVACR/Piping Systems Technology, and Construction Trades programs worked on some aspect of the home construction project. Instructors Rob Weaver, Pat Luther, Mike Urbine, Mike Hardenbrook, Jason

Vida and Mike Knitz worked with the students throughout the school year to complete the soccer building. Students in Penta’s Construction Trades programs are instructed in a variety of areas including rough and finish carpentry; installation of interior/exterior trim; blueprint reading; power/hand tool use; residential wiring; heating and air conditioning, and concrete and brick laying techniques. Many of the students participate in the School-To-Work program, where they successfully work throughout the year with area construction companies and will be permanently employed with those same companies at the end of the school year. Students who do not participate in SchoolTo-Work seek employment in a construction career, enter apprenticeship-training programs, or move on to post-secondary training upon graduation. For more information about contracting with Penta to construct a house, contact Kevin McCann at 419-666-1120, ext. 6358. Potential home building projects must be located within a 10 to 15 minute driving distance of Penta’s Perrysburg Township campus. In addition, potential projects must be located within one of Penta’s member school districts. Over the years, Penta has constructed 80 homes in the community.

nspirational essage of the

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
