Found innocent of sexual assault

Exonerated man gives his version By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer We are taught in this country that an individual is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Maybe in the court of law, but Genoa native Joe Bergman says the same is not necessarily true in the court of public opinion. Bergman, a U.S. Army officer, was acquitted on May 16 of this year in Wood County Common Pleas Court of a sexual battery charge that was brought against him just over a year ago. It’s surprising that something so casual as meeting with someone in a busy movie

theater parking lot to say goodbye for 10 minutes could turn into so much more, but Bergman says that is what happened to him. On the night of March 30, 2012, Bergman met with a female Genoa High School student in his car at the parking lot at the Levis Commons RAVE Movie Theater to say goodbye before he was to leave for military training the next day. Even though Bergman insists that nothing more than words were exchanged between the two, an anonymous letter sent to Genoa Superintendent Dennis Mock brought about a felony charge against Bergman in early May, 2012. From that point, the situation drastically changed as one thing led to another.

“It went from being characterized as an inappropriate relationship to an inappropriate sexual relationship,” Bergman said, “to being reported that I was caught in a compromising position by Perrysburg city police at Levis Commons.” Press requests for interviews were made to Mock, Wood County prosecuting attorney Heather Baker, and Perrysburg detective Pat Jones, but all three parties declined. Bergman understands that it’s reasonable for someone without knowledge of the case to have doubts about his innocence. He says there are three things that should overwhelmingly convince a skeptic about the case.

The Lucas County dog warden is hoping a drop in the adoption fee will reduce overcrowding of dogs at the pound. A dog can be adopted for just $25 this month in a special promotion, “Christmas in July.” Dog Warden Julie Lyle said the kennels are close to capacity with dogs looking for homes. Several more are coming in every day. “We have 166 dogs currently and some of them have been waiting a long time for a home,” Lyle said. “We had 10 dogs per day come in last week and we are approaching capacity.” Lyle would not give a number when it came to capacity, but said the pound has kennels for both large and smaller dogs and that it’s hard to define. Two-thirds of the dogs are picked up as strays while one third are owner surrenders, she said. Lyle said she has “heard it all” when it comes to reasons people give up their dogs. “I have heard they had to get rid of the dog because they are moving, they or a child has allergies, the dog barks too much, and they can’t house train the dog,” Lyle said. “The problem is, many people get these dogs as puppies and they do not train them properly. Now they have a dog with an annoying issue. Many of the dogs we have just need a little help becoming great family members.” Lyle said at any given time, approximately 40 percent of the dogs in the pound are pit bull mixes. The pound also houses dogs that are being “bite quarantined” as well as those being held by courts. Dogs could be euthanized if space becomes limited. However, Lyle said it has never happened since Lucas County Commissioners hired her in March 2010 to replace controversial long time warden Tom Skeldon, who had resigned in January of that year following intense criticism for having one of the highest kill shelters in the area. “Space is a limiting factor,” said Lyle. “We do not want to euthanize because of space. We work hard to make sure we do not have to do that. We have never had to do that since I took office. We hold special adoption events like this and we work with

JULY 8, 2013

Exonerated man gives his version Continued from front page First, Bergman says there was no physical evidence, DNA, or medical evidence that supported the charge. Second, Baker admitted during the trial that there were inconsistencies in the accuser’s story. Third, the jury took just one-and-a-half hours to reach a verdict, a relatively short period of time that often indicates the case was open and shut. Arrested at Fort Leonard Bergman says there is even more to the story — that it will continue to play out in his life as a soldier and in his finances. He says the most embarrassing moment of Bergman’s life came 13 months ago when he was arrested by U.S. Marshals at Fort Leonard Wood Army Base in Missouri. Bergman was taken into custody in front of an entire formation of soldiers and then sat in jail for 21 days awaiting extradition back to Ohio. Now, Bergman says he can put the trial behind him and regain his military career. He knows that in some people’s eyes, he will never be exonerated. For some, he was guilty the minute his name and picture were paraded on television with the story that he had been charged with sexual battery. Add that he has tens of thousands of dollars in legal bills yet to be paid, and you get a better idea of what he’s going through. And that’s why he’s speaking out — he wants to set the story straight. “I enjoy so many things that I took for granted before, and that is not easy to say because I didn’t take much for granted,” Bergman, a 2002 Oak Harbor graduate, said. “After I came so close to having my freedom taken away, I enjoy things that might have been stripped from me so much more. Face-to-face, people have been pretty supportive. But the rumor mill says otherwise — that the Army bailed me out or there was some lawyer trick, et cetera. “Public perception seems to dictate

Joe Bergman reality in our society today,” Bergman continued. “A not guilty verdict in the court of law means I’m acquitted and exonerated of the charge. I’ve been cleared completely in a legal sense. However, in the real world, the damage is already done. There will forever be a shroud of skepticism and doubt around me. It tears me up because I’ve done more for most people than they have done for themselves or this nation, and yet they can stand in judgment of me, glare at me and talk behind my back. But they don’t have the integrity or courage to address me face-to-face.” Bergman says he cannot trust just anyone any more, “Only those who are close to me,” Bergman said. “It has made me less open and more guarded. I don’t trust law enforcement like I used to or approve of the amount of unchecked power a county prosecutor has and the unbelievable reality that they can ruin someone’s life knowing there is no evidence that supports a charge, and then walk away without suffering any consequences whatsoever.

“Until it happens to you, you really don’t realize how the system works — the uphill battle you face once you are indicted and charged with a felony offense and the massive amounts of money you need to fight a state or federal government with almost unlimited resources.” Bergman believes that Baker and Jones, the man who conducted the investigation, knew there were problems with the accuser’s account. “Heather Baker and Detective Pat Jones knew from the very beginning there were major inconsistencies with this case and yet they still pushed it forward,” Bergman said. “They knew the Ottawa County Sheriff Department reports didn’t match the Perrysburg police reports. Once Perrysburg police detective Pat Jones took over, he conducted multiple interviews with students and yet there was only one report and zero audio recordings. That means we really don’t know what was actually said, only what Detective Jones put in his report,” Bergman said. Mock stated in testimony that what started the investigation against Bergman was the anonymous letter he received from a parent. Mock added that the parent wanted to be kept anonymous in fear of retaliation from Bergman himself and that he never handed the letter over to Children’s Services or any law enforcement agency during the investigation. Additionally, Mock testified that he had lost the anonymous letter until three weeks before the trial and that was the reason Bergman’s defense team had never seen it for nearly a year. Despite this and the fact that there was no physical evidence, DNA, or medical evidence, Baker chose to continue prosecuting the case. Bergman wonders why they continued pursuing a case. “It’s not what I fought to protect and defend,” Bergman said. “It’s not what (former Oak Harbor wrestler killed in military service) Keith Kline and thousands of other men and women died to uphold, and it certainly is not the vision or intent our forefathers had when they forged our nation.”

Honor Flight scaling back on applications Citing a long waiting list coupled with a shortage in funding, Honor Flight Northwest Ohio is scaling back on the acceptance of veteran applications for flights to Washington, D.C. The organization will continue to accept applications from World War II veterans who have not already seen the World War II Memorial. Applications for veterans from the Korean and Vietnam wars will not be accepted. In making the announcement, Honor

Flight Northwest Ohio cited the volume of applications being submitted and the number of veterans currently on the waiting list (over 600 as of late June), along with a decrease in overall funding and an increase in flight costs, which is currently just over $72,000 per trip. Honor Flight Northwest Ohio has one more flight scheduled for 2013, set for Oct. 9. Two flights are currently being planned for 2014. Veterans who have not yet applied to

Honor Flight Northwest Ohio should note that there are several other Honor Flight “hubs” in Ohio, including Flag City Honor Flight (Findlay); Honor Flight CAK (Akron/ Canton); Honor Flight Cleveland; Honor Flight Columbus; Honor Flight Dayton and Honor Flight Tri-State (Cincinnati). Information on the various Honor Flight “hubs” is available online at To contact Honor Flight Northwest Ohio, call 419-410-7729 or email

No room at pound Continued from front page outside organizations so we do not have to euthanize.” Lyle said many factors contribute to an uptick in the numbers of dogs coming to the pound, such as the weather. “In the middle of winter, there are not as many dogs running loose,” Lyle said. “The kids being home from school also adds to the problem. The kids are running in and out of the house, not paying attention, and the dog takes off.” The pound has a variety of dogs up for adoption. Big, medium and small, everything from Bull Mastiff mixes to Chihuahuas, puppies, adults and seniors, can be found there. After the promotion is over in August, the adoption fee goes back up to $100, she said. Dogs are spayed or neutered, wormed, vaccinated and have been heartworm tested. They have been evaluated for behavior and microchipped, Lyle said, adding they have a couple of dogs who went through the PHD (Prisoners Helping Dogs) program who are especially well trained. Some dogs have been at the pound longer than others. Hopes are high Christmas will come early and they will be adopted during the event. “These are wonderful dogs all looking for good homes,” said Lyle. “Some dogs have sponsors that have donated part of their adoption fee so the only thing that will need to be paid is the license fee, which is $25 in Lucas County.” The Lucas County Dog Warden, located at 410 S. Erie Street in Toledo, is also seeking volunteers. Donations such as blankets, towels and dog supplies are always appreciated. The warden’s office recommends that your dog always wear a license and proper identification so that it may be found if it ever goes missing. To search for a missing dog, or for more information, call the warden’s office at 419-2132800.

Art Van plans new store in Oregon By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor The Oregon Planning Commission voted in favor of variances in the zoning code for property at 2601 Navarre Avenue to clear the way for the development of an Art Van Furniture Store. Plans call for construction of a smaller display store at the site rather than a large, full scale building, according to Mayor Mike Seferian, who sits on the Planning Commission. The variances were for C-2 General Commercial zoned property to reduce the required interior parking lot landscaping on the property and to reduce the type and number of required buffer trees and shrubs in the right of way buffer yard on the property. The property, at the northeast corner of Navarre and Wheeling, was previously a gas station that has been torn down. The property has long been considered an eyesore, according to Seferian. Tim Horton’s is east of the site, and Oriental Gardens Chinese Restaurant is to the north. Brian Ellis, the engineer and surveyor of the project, told the Commission that many people have wanted to develop the site, but were unable to put together anything feasible. He said Art Van Furniture Store is reputable, and that the Michigan based retailer had put together a realistic site plan that is suitable to the city’s needs. The Ohio Department of Transportation’s acquisition of some of the rights of way on Wheeling and Navarre has limited the proposed size of the building at the site. The developer wants a 5,000 square foot building, with a potential restaurant at the side, but due to the zoning code requirements, has been unable to make it happen. Ellis said Art Van wants to keep the entrance off Navarre as an “enter only” entrance because the road has a lot of traffic. The company plans to do away with an existing drive to help increase planting in the area and alleviate the reduction in landscaping. Art Van would also have an enter/exit drive off of Wheeling. The Commission agreed to reduce the required interior parking lot landscaping from 570 square feet to 310 square feet, as requested. “They’re still going to come up short in the parking lot by about three spots as required by the size of the building,” Seferian told The Press. “But traditionally, people don’t flock to furniture stores. Most of the time, you see a handful of people in the parking lot.” The parking lot could be expanded when the city buys Oriental Gardens to build a road that will improve safety at the Navarre and Wheeling intersection, he added. “Once we purchase the Oriental Gardens Restaurant, we don’t need all of the property. We just need enough to put the road in. And the remainder, we’ll sell to

Art Van and they’ll have enough additional space. They could actually add onto the building and have enough parking spaces,” he said. The Commission also agreed to overlook the required plantings in the right of way and allow the city’s public service director to approve plantings in the right of way to avoid creating a site distance problem. Seferian said he as in support of the variances. “It will give them more room to put the building up by using that buffer,” said Seferian. “But the more important reason is, in that intersection, the buffer at the front would be a visual problem and safety matter for cars going in there. We would not

want to court a buffer in front of that building and cause a line of site issue.” The city had been looking for years to find a suitable development on the property that would not cause safety hazards due to congested traffic on Navarre and Wheeling, he said. Art Van is considered a “primary destination location,” a safer alternative than a gas station, where people come and go constantly, he added. “Most people looking for a couch or other furniture, they leave home knowing where they are going. They would take the safest route at Wheeling to pull in, versus that turn going east on Navarre and trying to cross those four lanes of traffic trying to get in,” said Seferian.

Attorneys representing a Fremont man indicted for the murder of his estranged wife have filed a motion to dismiss death penalty specifications in the case. The motion, filed in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court on behalf of Randall Ross, cites constitutional and international law violations. Ross, who was indicted in May, faces seven counts, including murder, aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, and kidnapping in the shooting death of his wife, Amy. Firearm specifications were included in the indictment. All of the charges are first degree felonies. The shooting occurred in March 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. Ross 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. 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 than a month later. A final pre-trial hearing is scheduled for July 31 at 10 a.m., according to the court docket.

Free E. Toledo program to transport pets to spay/neuter site By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

The goal is to transport almost 10,000 more dogs and cats to Humane Ohio.

Humane Ohio, a non-profit group that offers low cost spay/neuter rates, is expanding its transportation program for pet owners and free-roaming cat caretakers to take advantage of their services. Humane Ohio, which provides a transport program in seven counties, received a $40,000 grant from the ASPCA, (The American Society of Prevention and Cruelty to Animals) to fund a new 12 foot temperature controlled box truck for animals to ride in so that the program can be expanded, according to Jill Borkowski, marketing director of Humane Ohio. “The goal is to transport almost 10,000 more dogs and cats to Humane Ohio to help those in need of transportation,” she said. “Offering transportation is just another barrier that is removed. We’ve eliminated the hurdle of cost. It’s great we can offer low cost spay and neuter, but if people can’t get their pet to us, it does no good.” The East Toledo Family Center is one of four drop off and pickup points in Toledo where people can take pets and freeroaming cats for free transportation to and from Humane Ohio for the spay/neuter surgery at least once a month, said Borkowski. Additional dates are being set up from outlying counties as well. Transports will also run from the Chester Zablocki Senior Center and That Neighborhood Church on the north side, and the Providence Center and the Mayores Senior Center on the south side. Humane Ohio is offering free spay and neutering for owned and free-roaming cats at two of the transport locations in zip codes 43605 (East Toledo) and 43609 (old South End). People in the 43615 zip code (Central Avenue strip, Reynolds Road, Holland-Sylvania, Airport Highway, Hill and Reynolds Road area) can also have owned and free-roaming cats fixed for free. “Our transport program makes lowcost spay/neuter easily accessible to people who do not have transportation or money for gas,” said Borkowski. “It is a great option for people who cannot get to Humane Ohio during our normal drop-off and pickup times or who don’t have time to make a trip across town to Humane Ohio. This

transport program is one more way we are making sure that low-cost spay/neuter is available to our community so that we can reduce pet overpopulation and euthanasia in shelters.” “Low-cost spay/neuter programs are a key component in preventing unplanned litters and reducing shelter intake,” said Julie Morris, senior vice president of community outreach at the ASPCA. “The ASPCA is pleased to provide this grant to Humane Ohio for the purchase of their transport vehicle so that their community can continue to benefit from this advantageous service.” The group has a small cargo van that has transported pets to the facility for years, said Borkowski. The program focused on outlying, rural areas. With the second, bigger truck, the program can expand into the urban areas. “The transport program really focused on outlying areas like the Wood County Humane Society, animal shelters and rescue groups where we fix those animals before they are put up for adoption,” she said.

“The initial goal with the transportation program was to take our low cost spay/neuter out to areas that do not have low cost spay/neuter programs. Even though we have Humane Ohio in the Toledo community, there are still people who don’t have money for gas or just don’t have the time to transport. So we want to offer that locally as well.” The cost to spay and neuter owned cats at Humane Ohio is $45, and $25 for free roaming, stray, feral and barn cats. The group is offering free spay and neuter of cats in the 43605, 43609, and 43615 zip codes due to the cat overpopulation in those areas, said Borkowski. “The Toledo Area Humane Society cat intake is highest in these zip codes. Between 2010 and 2012, we had a grant that allowed us to provide free spay and neuter services for cats in the 43605 and 43609 zip codes. We fixed 2,516 cats during that period from those two zip codes. At the end of that two year period, the Toledo Area Humane Society cat intake in the 43605 zip code area had decreased by 34 percent, and decreased by 50 percent in the 43609 zip code area,” said Borkowski. “The fact that the Toledo Area Humane Society cat intake decreased so significantly proves that spay and neuter and trap-spay/ neuter-release works. The proof is in the numbers,” she added. “Spay and neutering is the only way to reduce pet overpopulation and shelter euthanasia.” Humane Ohio fixes over 3,000 free roaming cats each year,” she said. “Those are cats we trap or cats people trap and

bring in to us. That makes a huge difference in the free roaming cat population. Those are 3,000 cats that are no longer breeding. Those are huge numbers of litters we’re preventing. There are a lot of free roaming cats in every city, but if we just break it down to the individual colonies, and people focus on those in their area, it immediately stabilizes that population and no more litters are born. We’re always looking for new volunteers to help us trap cats. The more we get, the more cats we can help.” Humane Ohio, which has its own veterinarians on staff, also offers discounted prices to spay and neuter dogs. Costs are $65 for dogs under 70 lbs., $75 for dogs 7099 lbs., and $110 for dogs 100 lbs. or more. Borkowski emphasized that the group is flexible with rates for people who may be financially strapped and urged pet owners to call Humane Ohio anyway. “Please call us even if you think you can’t afford it. We’re a non-profit organization. Sometimes we have multiple grants and private donations. We will always try to work with people individually, and can do something to help you get your pet fixed,” she said. For more information on drop-off and pickup locations, dates and spay/neuter prices, visit then call Humane Ohio’s transport coordinator at 567-395-7500 to reserve a spot. The website should be checked regularly for additional dates that may be added later. People who want to take advantage of the transport system must make an appointment. There are no walk-ups.

Collins Park homeowners stand ground

City contacts 28 homeowners seeking to purchase homes By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer

“Beverly Hills of Birmingham” Although one resident said he was willing to sell, six residents spoke against the taking of homes in one of East Toledo’s more affluent neighborhoods. “Overall, there is a concern that this is

Father Frank Eckart speaks to Toledo city council members on behalf of Collins Park residents sitting behind him. (Press photo by J. Patrick Eaken) one of the nicest parts of the neighborhood — the people there don’t want to move if they don’t have to. This, I think, is a truly strong neighborhood” said Father Frank Eckart of the Birmingham Development Corporation. The homes are next to Collins Park Golf Course and one homeowner originally paid $105,500 for his property, although appraised values have dropped because of a decline in the real estate market. Miller said the city will pay closing and relocation costs, also, so there should be no out of pocket expenses for anyone willing to sell unless they purchase a more expensive home. Some that were thinking about selling said they were looking at homes in places like Oregon and Findlay. One speaker said he was willing to sell and was already working with Miller to reach an agreement, but most wanted to stay.

He called the neighborhood the “Beverly Hills of Birmingham.” “Before the golf course and before the water works, we were there,” Nemecek said. “This street is a vital part of the neighborhood for people to walk. You take all the homes and you destroy this street and you are slowly going to take apart the neighborhood. “All we want to know is, tell us, and let us become involved in this process and not be in the background. If we’re involved in the process, I think you can save the street. This street is vital to the neighborhood.” Joseph Nemecek, also a Collins Park lifetime resident, says the potential sale of homes in his neighborhood is “scaring people.” He adds that even though the market indicates one price, it doesn’t include in-

The City of Toledo contacted 28 homeowners to see if they would be willing to sell their property to make room for an expansion of the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood. The city says it is looking for two separate groups of four contingent properties to make room for two new substations and staging areas for construction. Wednesday during a committee of the whole meeting to discuss the proposed property acquisitions, about 20 Birmingham residents were present as Collins Park residents told city council’ members they feared the city will use eminent domain to obtain the properties needed. In addition, some homeowners said they believed the price offered was not fair and others said they had no intention of leaving a neighborhood they lived in their entire lives. The $314 million expansion was mandated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and has to be completed within five years. Dave Welch, director of public utilities, said several homeowners have already agreed to sell, but the city has failed to find a string of four homes to make room for the construction project. Jamie Miller, a realty specialist with the city, said they were close to reaching agreements with other homeowners. City council had authorized $700,000 for the purchase of the homes, but Councilman Shaun Enright, an East Toledo resident, led legislation to rescind the authorization, which was approved by an 8-4 vote. Mayor Mike Bell vetoed Enright’s legislation, but council can still overturn the veto.

trinsic value of their homes nor the amount of money they have put in to upgrade their properties. Mary Ann Acevedo said she paid $35,000 to renovate her home and called the area a “beautiful neighborhood.” “I am fighting for my neighbors that have lived there — we look out for each other,” Acevedo said. “There is no crime in the street. If I knew a neighbor that is going on vacation, I’ll mow their lawn — it doesn’t hurt me. We’re proud of our neighborhood, we’re proud of our homes.” Resident Harold Howe said, “I want you to know it’s very depressing — are you taking my house or are you not? It’s a big mind game with us. I’m where I want to be. I’m an east sider — I’m an ‘05er (43605 zip code). Please come up with a different plan. I think you can — I’ll put some faith in you to do that.” Peter Ujvagi, speaking in council chambers as a resident for the first time since serving on council, presented four requests of city council on behalf of the residents — The first request — no demolition of homes on York, Collins Park Drive and Consaul Street until an acceptable plan for the expansion of the water plant has been developed and agreed to. The second request is the establishment of an effective task force. The task force idea was accepted by the city one other time — at a March 25 public meeting, but none has been formed yet. Another public meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. on July 11 at the treatment plant. Thirdly, Ujvagi requested the city take responsibility for the maintenance and upkeep of any homes purchased or work with an appropriate organization to maintain and manage the homes. He suggested having Neighborhood Works manage the homes. Last, he said if the city insists on continuing to purchase homes, a fair price be offered to residents; utilize an “option to buy” as a mechanism to purchase property in the future, if needed; salvage rights not be granted on any homes purchased by the city; and renew a commitment that eminent domain will not be used.

Oregon considers restroom/concession bid

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

I don’t want to end up paying for architectural designs, and then, as time goes by, we don’t use them and they sit on a shelf...

Oregon City Council is expected soon to award a contract for the construction of a concession and restroom facility in the Oregon South Complex. Plans call for new restrooms, a concession stand and eating area to be located in the middle of the soccer fields south of Wolf Creek, on the north side of Starr Extension. “The facility will include a concession stand, restrooms, and a gathering place all under one roof,” said Mayor Mike Seferian. Public Service Director Paul Roman said he has met with council to review bids of three contractors, each of whom submitted “design build” proposals. The Recreation Board is also expected to weigh in on the matter. AA Boos & Sons submitted a $400,000 bid, Rudolph Libbe a $500,000 bid, and Mosser Construction a $600,000 bid, according to Roman. The lowest bid is not necessarily the “winning” bid, he said. “They’re a little different. They each put together different details of what they are proposing,” he said. “I think we want a general consensus from everyone as to what we want, and get with who we want to

pick, then go through a more detailed contract. It would not necessarily be awarded to the lowest bidder. All three are quality firms. We don’t have any doubt in any one of the three firms’ workmanship. I think it comes down with what we would get for the money.” Currently there are restrooms and a concession stand where the ball diamonds are located at the sports complex. “But when you go out to the soccer complex, there’s a lot of walking, and our current concession stand cannot serve the

soccer fields just because they are so far spread out. So this proposal will put this facility smack in the middle of all these soccer fields. And that will make it a lot easier for people to get to the restroom,” said Roman. There is no sanitary sewer on Starr Extension, so a line would have to go under Wolf Creek to connect to the Seaman Road sanitary sewer, according to Roman. “A grinder pump station could pump the sanitary to our existing sewer that actually serves our concession and restrooms north of Wolf Creek,” he said. “So it has to go 1,500 to 2,000 feet of forced main to our existing sewer, and eventually to the Seaman Road sanitary sewer. They would bore most of the lines under Wolf Creek so as not to disrupt anything. It will only be a two to three inch forced main. Nobody really wants to pump sanitary. You want it to flow by gravity, but there is no sanitary sewer on Starr, so that’s what we’re left with.” It is the first time Roman has sought “design build” proposals, he said. “It’s new for me to do this process. Basically, the people who are submitting the proposals would really be the general contractor of the project. But they each had an architect as a sub consultant for their work,” he said. “It’s different from the traditional bid concept, where you have the design first, then the bids. They are more or less proposals, but there is a cost tied to it. I think in the end, no matter what we do, we will have a very detailed scope of work from whoever we pick, and it may change from what’s been proposed.” The “design build” concept gives the city more latitude in adjusting the proposals, said Seferian. “When we put a project out to bid, we have to stick to the bid unless we go through other actions to make changes. Previously, we would pay an architect for designs. Then we would, as part of bid requirements, take the design and put them out to bid. I don’t want to end up paying for architectural designs, and then, as time goes by, we don’t use them and they sit on a shelf somewhere. With `design build,’ the contractor includes designs in the bid.” The city’s Parks & Recreation Committee is also expected to go through the proposals before council acts, said Roman. Seferian said he expects the bid to be awarded this month.

A brighter day To the editor: The City of Northwood has left a bitter taste in the mouth of residents in surrounding communities for quite some time. Furthermore, the manner in which the city collected thousands of dollars from both locals and outsiders under the pretense that it was about “safety” screamed, “have you no shame?” From the speed trap by I-280, the mobile van that was parked in ever-so-convenient spots (most of which took advantage of already struggling college students), to the red light and speed cameras placed at intersections. Consequently, even mentioning the city of Northwood, in most respects, drew the response, “avoid it like the plague.” Personally, I have taken pride in doing everything in my power to “hate” on the city of Northwood. During this period of “making the streets of Northwood safer” (aka lightweight robbery) I can honestly say, I would drive 30 minutes across town to visit the same business that was 10 minutes away in Northwood. This decision was out of sheer principle. Clearly, I was spending more time, gas, and money to go across town. Even the thought of going through Northwood became non-existent the moment the city decided to use its streets as a

method to create revenue. Enough with the negative, though. I am very happy and excited to see that the city made the right decision. The people have spoken over the past few years and it seems as if one by one, these money-making disgraces to the city have fallen. As it pertains to safety, it would be foolish to claim that the implementation of these devices would not be of any help at all, however, is the juice worth the squeeze? The city of Northwood could have the safest streets in America, but at what cost? Moreover, if the city wants to continue practices that “maintain road safety,” then do so in a manner that is not deceptive and sneaky. The reputation of the city and businesses have suffered long enough. Brandon Barber Oregon

More lies

To the editor; In the June 17 issue of The Press, an article by Cynthia L. Jacoby entitled, “Sales tax becoming touchy issue in Ottawa County,” there was a serious distortion of facts.

The writer had extensively interviewed and quoted Ohio Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern. Redfern, for an article that was supposed to be about taxation and took advantage of the opportunity to again falsely accuse former County Commissioner Mark Stahl of wrongdoing. He repeated untruths that Stahl had used Ottawa County resources in his personal business. Mark Stahl filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission (OEC) against the Ohio Democratic Party, headed by Chris Redfern, for campaign literature the party mailed during the November 2012 election that falsely maligned him. The OEC found probable cause of a violation of state election laws (against the Ohio Democratic Party). Jacoby did not include that fact in her article. Had she interviewed others, such as an OEC representative, she could have written a more fair and balanced report and not just filed another blatantly false and malicious accusation by Chris Redfern. The last statement in the article was, “Redfern said, “He (referring to Mark Stahl) knows he’s guilty.” Presumably, Redfern thinks he can make this statement because

Stahl chose not to go forward with the hearing since that would have been at his personal expense, while Redfern would have been using Democratic Party funds. Not only is Redfern’s statement not true, but as the last statement in the article, it leaves the reader with the impression that Mark Stahl has done something wrong. Although we have come to expect these tactics from the chairman of the Democratic Party, the article is not responsible journalism. Dave Amerine Ottawa County Conservatives Club Editor’s note. Mr. Stahl could not be reached for comment for the article referred to in the letter.

Correction An article about the history of the Village of Walbridge in the June 30 issue of The Press included incorrect information about a municipal garbage collection contract. Then councilmember Joann Schiavone headed negotiations for the village with Waste Management, Inc. for the contract, which was for 20 years, not 10. Based on an estimated savings of about $50,000 annually, the contract saved the village about $1 million.

For your own good, flaws need to be kept in perspective Everyone has an aversion to flaws. No one wants to buy a product with flaws. Who wants to drive a flawed car? Flaws in another person can be annoying. However, flaws are a part of life. Rather than being irritated by flaws, you can use them for personal growth. Life is not perfect. If it was, the boredom level would be very high. The secret to coping is keeping flaws in perspective. Ironically we tend to do just the opposite. We will overlook much of the good stuff in order to fixate on any flaws. This process becomes so habituated that many people aren’t aware they are doing it. For example, out of 10 issues, one is not ideal. Yet, it’s the flawed one that consumes your attention. You thus ignore the 90 percent of the good stuff. When fixated on flaws, not only do you overlook things you should be appreciating, you also experience more stress and anxiety. This strained emotional state further magnifies flaws out of proportion and inhibits your problem solving abilities. As you become mired in flaws, you stop noticing most, if not all of the good stuff. You no longer stop to smell the flowers because you don’t even see the flowers. Left unchecked, this syndrome dominates your outlook. When the only things you see in life are flaws, your attitude becomes one of problems and struggle instead of solutions and joy. Not only do you invariably find or create problems, you also attract them. In addition to external flaws, there are the flaws you see within yourself. Although these flaws may or may not exist, your perception is your reality. It’s not uncommon for someone to find an internal flaw where others see strengths. For example, there have been many stunningly attractive actresses who see physical flaws that no one else can find. Someone who is thin and in great shape will think they are overweight. Someone who has a beautiful face will think their nose is too big. Being hyper critical of yourself doesn’t

Dare to Live by Bryan Golden help you. You are unique. There’s no point to comparing yourself to others. There are aspects you can change and others you can’t. Physical attributes are just one area where many find flaws in themselves. You are born with a certain face, body type, and height. Obsessing over these aspects just causes stress. One critical factor that impacts the way you look is your attitude. Regardless of their physical charac-


teristics, positive, upbeat, and happy people are more attractive than their negative, sour, and unhappy counterparts. Character flaws can be corrected. It doesn’t matter how long they’ve existed. To fix a character flaw, you have to recognize, acknowledge, take responsibility for it, and then be willing to change it. If you deny it or make excuses, you won’t make any changes. This is one type of flaw you don’t have to live with. Invariably, you will notice flaws in others. You can change yourself but you cannot change someone else. Other people are who they are. If any changes are to be made, they have to be willing to make them. So you have to recognize and accept people for who they are. If you can’t

overlook their flaws, the only option is to eliminate or minimize your contact with them. Any attempt to force someone else to change, leads to friction. Concentrate on the many wonderful aspects of life. Don’t get hung up on flaws. Seek out solutions rather than searching for problems. Maintain an attitude of gratitude.

BAC could go from .08 to .05

Recommendation for change in DUI law goes too far Page Two

Alcohol Related Deaths in the U.S.

by John Szozda

The .05 limit puts us one step closer to prohibition while gaining little in the way of safety.

The State of Ohio toughened its drunkdriving laws 30 years ago this spring resulting in a steady decline of alcohol-related fatalities from 966 in 1982 to 358 in 2011, according to statistics from the United States Department of Transportation. The biggest decrease occurred during the first 10 years. The decline has leveled off since then as it has in other states. That has prompted the National Traffic Safety Transportation Board to issue a report calling for tougher measures including the controversial reduction of the threshold blood alcohol content from .08 to .05 percent. The report also calls for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to: • Continue high visibility sobriety checkpoints and media campaigns; • Expand use of ignition interlock systems; • Use DUI courts and other measures to reduce recidivism. The goal is zero alcohol-related crashes, injuries and fatalities which is what you’d expect coming from the transportation safety board. However, the recommendations go a step too far. The lowering of the BAC is a money grab for some to profit off social drinkers. It will brand more young people as criminals restricting their opportunities for certain jobs and saddling them with stiff fines and higher insurance rates while doing little to address the real problem—the drunk. Consider that statistics from the Ohio Department of Public Safety show that in 2011 of 192 alcohol-related fatalities in which a BAC was taken, 183 were caused by drivers with a BAC of .10 and above. Further, 106 of these drivers registered a BAC of .20 and above. Only nine deaths were caused by drivers with a BAC of .09 and below. Ohio obviously has a bigger problem with the problem drinker, not the social drinker. A woman who weighs 120 pounds, or a man who weighs 160 pounds, can exceed the .05 BAC limit with two drinks in an hour. Just having a drink or two with dinner can put you at risk for a DUI under the lower limit. The restaurant and bar industry would be harmed while the insurance industry and government would benefit and there would be a negligible impact on public safety. Area billboards show a young man taking a breathalyzer test with the caption, “You just blew $10,000.” Last month, I interviewed a local insurance agent and an attorney who has spent 23 years defending drivers charged with DUI to determine if the claim was true. I found the cost of a DUI can range from a low of $2,800 to a possible $14,750. The question becomes, should someone who is a minimal risk to the public for having a couple of drinks bear this cost as well as the burden that can accompany a DUI conviction in terms of limited job opportunities? The .05 limit puts us one step closer to

ed crashes 20 percent. The CDC also states ignition interlock systems have proven effective and their use has more than doubled nationwide from 100,000 units in 2006 to more than 200,000 in 2010. Increasing the use of these two deterrents, especially the ignition interlock system for multiple offenders and those who blow higher than .10, would be more reasonable. The interlock system prevents a driver from starting a car if the BAC is above a specified level. Statistics show most fatal crashes occur at night and on the weekend. Sobriety checkpoints during these times, while an inconvenience, are a visible deterrent. Thirty-one percent of fatal crashes on the weekend during 2011 were alcohol-related versus 15 percent during the week. These new recommendations, if acted upon, will continue to stem the carnage drunk drivers inflict. In 1983, Ohio toughened its law by implementing the .10 BAC limit, requiring a minimum 72-hour jail sentence for first time offenders, license suspension of 60 days to three years and a fine of $150 to $1,000. Repeat offenders faced more severe penalties including jail sentences of up to one year and license suspension of up to 10 years. Since then, threatened by loss of federal highway funds, the state has lowered that limit to .08 and implemented a zero tolerance stance for drivers under 21 and tougher sanctions against drivers who test above .17. Any traffic-related death is tragic. Most of the recommendations by the National Traffic Safety Transportation Board address the problem drinkers—the multiple offenders and those who can’t stop after two drinks. Implement these, but don’t punish the responsible social drinker. Comment at zoz@presspublications. com

Therapy riding opens doors for fair participant

Rally for the Cure

Chad Karnes began his journey of riding horses when he was just 7 years old. Carolyn Karnes, Chad’s mother, shared that he began riding at Vail Meadows Equestrian Center as therapy for Asperger’s Syndrome and was a natural from the start. Chad had no tension when he rode and described it like sitting in a rocking chair. Since then, the family has moved to Ottawa County and Chad now works with Suzanne Miller, trainer at Lemon Tree Stables in Oak Harbor. Chad, now a teen, often rides his bike down to the stables to train with his horse, Dixie, who is leased from the Heiks family. Besides riding, Chad maintains his horse, which includes safety precautions, personal care, doing chiropractic stretches to Dixie’s neck and upkeep of the stall. Chad is at his happiest when he is at the stables, his mom says. Part of that happiness comes from his relationship with his horse, as well as the other horses at the stables. “He is able to observe many of the horses’ habits and behaviors, such as knowing if they are having a bad day, a stomach ache or the fact that they prefer to not be alone in the pasture,” she said. Dixie, who is 12-years-old, is the largest horse at the stable. Trainer Suzanne Miller adds that Dixie is a gentle horse with a smooth ride and beautiful markings that make her quite the “supermodel of horses.” Lemon Tree Stables offers Chad yearround training as they have an inside riding arena. Chad has learned such skills as riding without a saddle to increase his balance, dropping sticks into a bucket, and maneuverability. His expertise has allowed him to ride Dixie both inside and outside the fenced-in area. After almost a year with Dixie, Chad, who is a member of the Making Strides 4-H Club, has decided to take her to the upcom-

Mathews Ford Oregon will host a Rally for the Cure Car Show Sunday, July 21. Rally for the Cure is a grassroots effort that was created to raise awareness and help empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and the importance of annual breast cancer screenings. More than 2 million people have participated in Rally events across the nation since its start in 1996. This year marks the second year Mathews Ford Oregon has participated in the Rally effort. In addition to mobilizing people behind the promise to end breast cancer, Rally events have generated over $70 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The day’s activities will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to prize and 50/50 raffles, there will be children’s activities, food and beverages available for purchase and each participant will receive a goody bag “We are proud to open our facility and host a Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while supporting an event we are passionate about,” said John Becerra, sales manager. ”The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like Tim Mathews who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally.’ It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” said Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure. For more about the Mathews Ford Oregon Rally event, contact Rachel Nissley at 419-698-4444 or email at

As a first-year competitor, Chad will be competing in both Showmanship and the Walk and Trot competitions. Carolyn shared that Chad is currently riding three evenings a week to prepare for the fair. It is only through the generosity of the Heiks family that Chad is able to take Dixie to the fair, and Carolyn expressed her gratitude to them. The skills Chad has acquired during

his time at the stables has prepared him for his new summer job at African Lion Safari.

Don’t get burned this summer: sunburn remedies There’s no cure for sunburn, but there are ways to minimize the misery. The July issue of ShopSmart magazine, from Consumer Reports, highlights effective treatments that can help heal after a sunburn and identifies products to avoid when scorched by the sun. “Don’t get burned twice,” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor in chief of ShopSmart. “Some sunburn products may do more harm than good.” To help prevent sunburns, which can lead to skin damage, premature aging and skin cancers, ShopSmart recommends applying sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before heading outside and reapplying it at least every two hours while outdoors. Because using sunscreen isn’t enough, wear protective clothing, sunglasses and a widebrimmed, tightly-woven hat if possible. For those who find themselves suffering from a sunburn despite best efforts, the secret to relief is to treat it quickly from the inside and the outside. ShopSmart has

identified remedies that can provide comfort from a sunburn and those that aren’t worth trying: What to try Food and water. Drink extra water, especially when in the sun. Bodies work hard to cool skin, so staying hydrated can help. And eating fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants may help prevent cell damage caused by the sun. Painkillers. Anti-inflammatory pain medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin can help ease the pain and discomfort that can be caused by a sunburn. Hydrocortisone cream. If a sunburn is causing itchiness, an over-the counter cream can help. Lotion. Don’t waste money on a special after-sun lotion. A light moisturizer or aloe vera can minimize peeling and flaking. What to Skip After-sun sprays. Pain-relief sprays of-

fer instant relief, but most contain benzocaine or another anesthetic that can make things worse for those who are allergic. Vaseline. Applying Vaseline or other petroleum jelly products right after getting too much sun won’t help in cooling down. Noxzema. Applying more than a thin layer of Noxzema to soothe a sunburn probably won’t help. Even the manufacturer does not recommend the use of its products for sunburn relief because they haven’t been tested for that purpose. Vitamin creams and oils. Don’t waste money on pricey lotions and potions that contain antioxidants – incorporate them into a diet instead. And don’t puncture vitamin E capsules to spread the oil on a sunburn, since it can inflame sore skin on those who are allergic and may not help anyway.

He first got the idea in 2011 to hold a concert as a way to mark the 10th anniversary of his mother’s passing. At the time, he and his band were joined by a classmate from Clay High School, Jake Beckman and the two groups raised almost $700. Last year’s concert raised more than $1,200. “My mom was very musical…she was in the Clay High School band like me,” Cody said. “I thought putting on a show would be a great way to celebrate her life.”

Joint replacement – where we are and where we’re headed As with many other aspects of medicine and healthcare, advances and changes in technology, technique and yes, even reimbursement from insurance companies, have been instrumental in the evolution of what we now see and experience. Hysterectomies done as outpatients, cardiac bypass patients going home in a fraction of the time compared to 30 years ago – things that were considered impossible, or at least unlikely, are now becoming more and more commonplace. Such is the case for orthopedic procedures, particularly knee and hip replacement procedures. I can remember “back in the day” when a knee or hip replacement was considered a monumental experience (believe me, it still is). Patients would be admitted to the hospital at the very least, the day before surgery and remain in the hospital for several days afterwards. Weeks and weeks of therapy; nonweight bearing for weeks, on a walker for what seemed an eternity and the interesting thing was – our motion expectation was to work hard to obtain 90-degrees of flexion (bend) to be able to sit in a chair and on the commode. Really, that’s all? Ninety degrees? Hey, you have to be able to sit on the “throne,” right?

No Bones About It. by Ken Chisholm


My, how times have changed. Technology has advanced beyond our expectations-implants touted to last 20 – even 30 years. They’ve even become a bit more “gender specific” with implants on the market geared more toward the women. While it’s been around for many years, one of the most interesting developments, and one that is getting more attention as of late, is the “partial knee replacement.” Partial knee replacement, also known technically as a “uni-condylar knee replacement (let’s stick with “partial knee replacement”, it’s easier) is a procedure where only one side of the knee joint is resurfaced instead of the entire joint. Used to treat specific, localized arthritis, the procedure is not new, but technology has changed over the years; better parts, longer-lasting, and each brand has something unique about it. Performed largely in the under-65 age group, this procedure is, quite literally,

“half” of what is done in a conventional knee replacement procedure. Only one “knuckle” of the thigh bone is re-surfaced and the tibial (shin bone) surface on the same side is also re-surfaced. Surgery time is typically shorter, as is the recovery. Many people have this procedure performed and are walking around within a couple hours of the surgery. That said, one of the most interesting aspects of partial knee replacements is that they, too, are now being done as outpatient procedure. For example, let’s say you have your outpatient partial knee replacement done at 7 am. Odds are you’ll be home by noon or 1 pm. As with any surgical procedure of this nature, some patients may not qualify for the procedure, let alone being done as an outpatient, because of medical history, age, type and severity of the arthritis. Several things have contributed to the development of “outpatient joint replacement,” some of which are technical, financial, marketing, more efficient use of time and resources in an outpatient surgery center, and public awareness/demand. Additionally, anesthesia delivery and post-operative pain control have become so tailormade for these procedures that it is much easier and more comfortable than ever be-

fore to have this procedure done, even as an outpatient. At this point in time, there are as many opponents to this new style of surgery as there are proponents – each with their own valid rationale. Remember, we never dreamed heart bypass surgery patients would go home in just a few days. So, is hospitalization for joint replacements over-kill? Is it really safer, easier and better as an outpatient? Just remember, the same questions were once asked about hysterectomies, major ligament reconstruction procedures in the knee, cataract surgery as well as many others. Personally, I believe that these recent changes in how surgery is performed – outpatient, micro-surgery, minimally-invasive techniques, better, longer-lasting parts are all elements which will continue to add up to better, easier, safer surgical procedures for us as patients moving forward into the future, and that, my friends, I am completely in favor of. Chisholm’s expertise in nursing, orthopedics and surgery spans more than 30 years. For more information on orthopedicrelated topics, visit Submit questions or comments to

Patrick Johnson uses bow to capture record carp By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor A new Ohio record carp taken by bow fishing has been certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee. The new state record carp, weighing 53.65 pounds, was caught by Patrick Johnson of Toledo in the Sandusky County portion of Lake Erie’s waters. Johnson arrowed the carp June 9 using a fish point tethered with 200 pound test Fast Flight line. Johnson’s record carp is 45 inches long and 32¼ inches in girth. His catch replaces the previous state bow fishing record carp that was arrowed in Sandusky Bay by Rich Cady on May 28, 2008, weighing 47.65 pounds and measuring 38 inches long. Ohio’s record fish are determined on the basis of weight only. Ohio’s state record fish are certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee with assistance from fisheries biologists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Biologists from the Ohio Division of Wildlife District 2 office in Findlay confirmed the identification of Johnson’s catch.

Falcons moving Clay Rolf from tight end to tackle By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer It wasn’t like getting called to the principal’s office when you were in sixth grade, but Clay Rolf knew something was up. As far as he was concerned, walking into a personal meeting with Bowling Green State University head football coach Dave Clawson, offensive line coach Bill Durkin, tight ends coach Adam Scheier and offensive coordinator Warren Roggiero was a good thing. “Periodically we go in just to talk to make sure everything is going good, like summer classes and to make sure life is good,” said Rolf, an Eastwood graduate. “When I saw coach Durkin come in the room, I knew what was going on. I had a little smile on my face.” Rolf, a redshirt junior who has played tight end for the Falcons the past two seasons, knew he was about to be asked to make a position change on BGSU’s offensive line. “The coaches called me into their of-

fice in early June and explained that they would like me to play tackle,” Rolf said. “I figured it would be coming one of these days. I was one of our bigger tight ends. Our tight ends are awesome, a great group, and I wanted to help the team out in any way possible. They thought moving me to tackle would Clay Rolf make a great fit, and I agree with them. I just want to work hard and win. Whatever they want me to do to get us to win, I’m willing.” The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Rolf – he weighed about 240 in high school – said he loved playing tight end. At the same time, the Falcons were using him as mostly a blocker anyway, so the move to tackle is no big deal. He hasn’t played the position since his junior year at Eastwood for coach

Jerry Rutherford. Rolf played in eight games for the Falcons at tight end and caught one pass, a 23yarder two years ago against Morgan State. “I knew my role,” Rolf said. “I was one of the bigger tight ends and I was in there to block. Maybe you go out on a (pass) route a few times, but my role was to block.” BG returns third-team All-Mid-American Conference tight end Alex Bayer this season. Bayer, a redshirt senior, has 78 career catches, more than any other Falcons receiver. “Tight end is the same as playing tackle,” Rolf said, “but you get to catch the ball once in a while. I love playing tight end and I liked playing for coach Scheier, but I like this move and I’m just going to keep working my butt off. The biggest (adjustment) for me will be pass protection, but the similarities between tight end and tackle are very similar.” Rolf was listed at 278 pounds last season, but he’s still gaining muscle mass with a steady diet of weight lifting, protein shakes, hamburgers and steak and potatoes.

“I do enjoy a good salad,” he said, adding that he’s being asked to continue to work on his footwork and foot speed. “I’m trying to be agile,” Rolf said. “The coaches didn’t say I had to put on too much weight. I just have to keep working and keep my feet getting faster and keep getting stronger.” Rolf is keeping busy this summer. In addition to lifting with the team every morning, he took a summer class and he helps out at his grandfather’s plumbing business 3-5 days a week. “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Rolf said. “I don’t mind working.” He added that the Falcons, who graduated two starting offensive linemen and a few defensive starters, “should be good” this season. BG finished 8-5 last year, with losses at heavyweights Florida and Virginia Tech, and ended the season with a loss to San Jose State in the Military Bowl in Washington, D.C. “We have a lot of guys coming back,” said Rolf, who is majoring in middle childhood education. “We’ve been working really hard this summer. We’re ready to go.”

Demographic sports divisions won’t work By Dave Schmidt Special to The Press

Complex formulas don’t work: the competitive balance proposal has failed three times already.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association’s vote to create new divisions based on its competitive balance proposal, which would have weighed enrollment with other demographic factors, failed. League consultant Dave Schmidt, the editor of The Senior, has a plan of his own, but don’t take the first part seriously — continue reading to get past the sarcasm — Three strikes and you are out! It is time for a change in leadership in the Ohio High School Athletic Association. The third defeat of a competitive balance vote is turning into a very sad situation on how the OHSAA is being operated and in the long run causing havoc in Ohio high school athletics. There were three proposals and three failures, all of them being endorsed by the OHSAA administration. This was their effort to avoid separate tournaments for the future. The OHSAA is avoiding the “elephant in the room” that public schools are not happy with the number of private schools winning state titles. The proposals were not addressing that issue to many public schools. This last proposal had many private and public school officials saying “Don’t like the plan, but it is better than separate tournaments.” That comment is not a huge endorsement of the plan and it looks like some schools voted because they were not happy with “a last minute, half-baked plan.” Of 823 high school ballots mailed, 667 ballots were returned including four invalid and 27 past the deadline (81 percent). Since we know there will be another vote (the fourth vote) on creating a competitive balance plan for high school sports in Ohio we think we have come up with the perfect formula – How to determine classes in the future — 10 key factors — • if your mascot at your school is an animal – 10 points • if one of your school colors has blue

Guest Editorial

or gold – 10 points • if the name of your community starts with a “C” – 10 points • if your fight song is to the tune “On Wisconsin” – 10 points • if your marching band has over 100 members – 10 points • if the county your school is in starts with a “B” – 10 points • if you have over 20 red headed students in your school – 10 points • if you have “Christian” or “Catholic” in your school name – 25 points • if you have not won a state tourney in the past 25 years – 25 points • if you have won multiple state titles in the past 5 years – 25 points Take the total number of points for your school and divide by four, multiple by four and divide into four divisions for every sport. Complex formulas do not work; the CB proposal has failed three times already. This issue is taking away from high school athletics in Ohio. Let’s face it (again) there is no perfect solution to this issue. The vote has the association split at 50 percent-50 percent, so even if a CB plan is approved

there are still going to remain many “unhappy” member schools. The more this issue is debated, more problems are created and it divides both sides. If a school is a member of the OHSAA and follows the guidelines and is not on probation or facing discipline with the association, that should be good enough. The last two major problems that faced the OHSAA with “recruiting” and “eligibility” have been with public schools. Both sides have those who try and take advantage of the situation. The “playing field” is always changing in eligibility issues and the way it looks will continue to change. • Open enrollment. • Vouchers that allow students to attend a private school. • Charter schools. • The OHSAA’s new transfer rule. The new transfer rule now allows for “free agency” of student athletes. We find it quite surprising that this proposal passed so easily, when you consider the CB proposal was to stop “unfair” recruiting of athletes and stop private schools from dominating state tournaments. This new rule now allows everyone to compete for athletes on an open market. Plus there are no regulations or rules that prohibit how many times you do this in your HS career. Maybe that’s how it worked for “Buddy” on “Hoosiers”. The passage of this proposal may be the CB proposal Ohio has been looking for to solve the problem. It allows everyone to pursue athletes in the future. The next step would be to have no penalties when a student transfers. Florida came very close this year to having that in place This new transfer rule is basically the open enrollment plans for athletes. This is why a CB plan will not work now. Separate tournaments and separate associations are a very bad idea for Ohio. But we still feel if schools want to vote on that issue they should be able to do so and that the OHSAA should put that on the ballot without a signed petition. All schools would be wise to look at what would take place if this did ever pass, especially in this economy. But let’s not make schools vote on another complicated and confusing CB proposal.

Minturn-Mack returns to action at home track Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Dawn Minturn-Mack made her 2013 debut aboard a powerful Matt Smith Racing Buell last weekend at the seventh annual Summit Racing Equipment Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park. A native of Columbus, MinturnMack had last raced under NHRA sanction in early September at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, where she successfully qualified one of Smith’s Buells for the sport’s longest-running and most prestigious event. “We hope to pick up right where we left off,” Minturn-Mack said. “Matt has very competitive bikes and even though I’m only able to race part-time until we secure full-time funding, the fact we were able to jump on one of his Buells and make the field at Indy says a lot. “I’m really excited to be racing again, especially in my home state of Ohio. I know the fan support will be tremendous. It should be a great Fourth of July weekend.” Schiets Motorsports of Fremont and are on board as sponsors. “There is nothing more exciting than competing at your home track,” Minturn-Mack said. “I know that track like the back of my hand, so I always feel more comfortable there. Plus, the Bader Family always puts on a great show for the fans so the atmosphere will be upbeat. “Having Armor Paving & Sealing and Superior Die Tool & Machine Company on the bike will give us a built-in fan base because those two companies have been around for a long time and the fans in this area will know them. I hope to represent them well.” Throughout the weekend, MinturnMack and her Red Dawn Racing teammates wore purple ribbons in support of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness.

Obituary Jean M. Melchior 7/2/1928 ~ 6/29/2013

Jean Melchior, 84, of Oregon, Ohio, passed away peacefully on th Saturday, June 29 , 2013 in her home. She would have turned 85 on July nd 2 , 2013. She was born Genevieve Marie Romp on July 2nd, 1928 in Gates, Pennsylvania to Nikodem and Katherine (Kobsowicz) Romp, one of thirteen children born to the union of her parents. Jean graduated from Waite High School in 1946. She married Jerry R. th Melchior on September 10 , 1955, and he survives. Jean was a strong woman and a hard worker, having been employed as a production line worker and later a plant expediter at the Libbey Owens Ford factory from 1950 until her retirement in 1982. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a talent for cooking a great number of her specialties throughout the years. Jean took pleasure in dining out with her family, especially at Eddie Lee's. For many years, she hosted annual Christmas Eve celebrations in her home for her extended family as well as some Romp family reunions in her backyard. She enjoyed reading and working crossword puzzles to keep her mind sharp and was an avid Cleveland Indians fan. But perhaps Jean's greatest passion was for her family. She was fiercely loyal and protective of her family and gave selflessly to those she loved. Nothing made her more proud than to see her children and grandchildren grow and find success in their life's journeys. In addition to her parents, Jean was predeceased by her brothers Walter, Stanley, Bill, Joe and Ed Romp and sisters Louise Farkas, Vernelle Harper, Betty Pisula, Wanda Simko and Frana McQuillin as well as 2 siblings who passed in childhood. Her passing marks the end of an era for the extended Romp family. Jean's two beloved dogs, Pepper and Molly, await her at the Rainbow Bridge.

A Message from America’s Longest Running Family-Owned Car Dealer. Since autos were invented, America has built more cars than the rest of the world combined. We put the first man on the moon, and won the biggest war. From the light bulb to the internet, we have dominated. The innovations we’ve created have changed the world and made it a better place. We are the biggest and most advanced industrial power ever. We take a back seat to no one. In 2013, JD Powers put more General Motors cars at the top of their list for quality and innovation than Honda, Toyota, and Mercedes. For that matter, more than any other auto manufacturer. Here at Dunn-Chevy-Buick, we are the oldest, the most experienced, and we’re proud of it. We celebrate 104 years of American Loyalty-American Quality. If you can’t buy a Chevy or Buick from us, buy a Ford or a Chrysler. But please, buy from an American company; for yourself, for your kids, your grandkids, and for the greatest country on earth!
