Main/Starr corridor

Art projects to be followed by music fest By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer First, 18 cement trashcans and eight planters were transformed from dull, gray cylinders to bright and creative works of art stretching along Main Street in East Toledo. Next, Owens-Illinois employees volunteered with the East Toledo Family Center and the LeSo Gallery to paint and add color to benches and bus stops along the same corridor. The project was a partnership between LeSo Gallery, the East Toledo Family Center, the East Toledo Club, and volunteers from Owens-Illinois. Last week, 19 murals were painted by nine artists, including local eighth-graders, at 813 Starr Ave. on a building that a year ago was a public eyesore. The final mural was completed at 5 p.m. on July 2, completing phase one of a public arts project led by LeSo and community leaders. One mural, painted by LeSo Gallery co-owner Amber LeFever and another artist, depicts a portrait of the 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth surrounded by a bed of roses. Last December, Elaina’s mother, Angela Steinfurth, and Angela’s 24-yearold boyfriend, Steven King II, pled guilty for their roles in Elaina’s murder. That homicide attracted national media, casting a gray cloud over an East Toledo community

...I feel like art is our trade, art is our talent, and that is the best way that we can make improvements

A movement is under way to transform the old concrete fire dock into a boat launch in downtown Oak Harbor. During Monday’s village council meeting, Administrator Randy Genzman reviewed the funding breakdown for the renovation project revived last year after years on the back burner. He said a $62,850 Land and Water Conservation Fund grant has been obligated to the village and a $28,650 grant through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Nature Works is pending. Should both be secured, the village share would cost about $34,200 if the project comes in at the low estimate of $125,000 calculated by ODNR staff, the administrator said. The project falls in line with a low-key effort to revitalize the downtown to bring more visitors – and more spending – to Oak Harbor businesses. The old fire dock structure located at the end of Church Street at the Portage River was once used to provide water service to fire trucks battling blazes in the downtown area. It has, however, remained dormant for years, Genzman said. The work site could impact the public easement along Church Street as well as the rear properties of Oak Harbor Hardware, Croghan Colonial Bank, U.S. Bank and the old Gordon Lumber yard. Renovation would concentrate on constructing a hand-powered boat launch and dock and pier area for canoes, kayaks and similar watercraft. No access for motor-powered vehicles would be allowed, Genzman explained. Councilman Jim Seaman wondered if the village might be able to use in-kind donations toward the village’s grant commitment instead of cash. He outlined a few suggestions, including using village labor. “All these kind of things make the job more doable,” councilman Jon Fickert agreed. Genzman said he would explore the possibility with ODNR officials. Councilwoman Sue Rahm, who joined

already reeling from a bad image. Elaina’s grandfather is a neighbor to the LeSo Gallery owners, who live above their business at Starr and Valleywood. “It was our final piece to the 19 murals that we installed, so it’s kind of our grand finale,” LeFever said. “Being a community-based arts gallery, we really wanted to come up with an idea that was community engaging and meaningful to our neighborhood. So, Adam (Soboleski), the other coowner of LeSo, thought of the idea.” What’s next? LeSo and other MainStarr corridor businesses are planning an entertainment and arts festival for Sept. 13, which will include two stages featuring

live bands. Main Street will be blocked off between Front and Fourth streets. “It’s kind of a work in progress,” LeFever said. “The people at Frankie’s and Mainstreet Bar are on the music committee, so they will be working on the music aspect and up here at LeSo, we are working on the pop-up galleries. “Basically, pop-up galleries are when artists take on an underutilized base and turn it into a gallery, and it’s like never a gallery again. It is designed to bring light to those underutilized bases and hope that they are becoming utilized bases. Pop-up galleries have been around for a while. A few years ago, at a glass conference, which is where all the glass people came to Toledo, there were multiple pop-up galleries that came out of there,” LeFever continued. Toledo District 3 Councilman Mike Craig handles permitting and leading fundraising efforts. He says the partnership has a long way to get the project off the ground, but he’s confident it will happen. He admits he can use any help he can get. “I’ve raised about $10,000, but $12,000 pays for the infrastructure — the bandstands, the port-a-potties — all the stuff that you need,” Craig said. “That doesn’t pay for the talent. The talent is going to be $20,000 to $25,000 more.” Continued on page 2

Court dismisses veteran’s appeal in shootout case By Larry Limpf News Editor A divided Ohio Supreme Court Thursday dismissed an appeal from an Oregon man who claimed the stress he incurred during the Iraq War was a factor when he engaged in a shootout three years ago with city police. Jeffery Belew was appealing a 27-year sentence imposed by the Lucas County Common Pleas Court, arguing his posttraumatic stress disorder wasn’t given appropriate consideration as a mitigating factor in his behavior. According to court records, Belew on April 10, 2011 fired at least four shots at police officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance call. Two shots hit a police car and Belew didn’t respond to commands to stop firing until he was wounded by officers returning fire. He was arrested and received medical care. Justices Paul Pfeifer, Terrence O’Donnell, Sharon Kennedy and Judith French agreed the court shouldn’t have accepted the appeal. Justice Judith Lanzinger’s dissent said that while the Supreme Court agreed the trial court did properly take Belew’s post— traumatic stress disorder into consideration during his sentencing, an opinion should still be rendered on how PTSD must be considered by a court when it sentences a veteran. “And just as important, we should clarify the standard that an appellate court must use in reviewing a sentence of this type,” Lanzinger wrote. “It is my position that only a full opinion by this court will clarify both the appellate court’s standard of review and the trial court’s need to support the record for a felony sentence.” Belew had entered pleas of not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity to two counts of attempted aggravated murder of a law-enforcement officer and two counts of felonious assault. He was evaluated by two psychologists who reported to the court he didn’t qualify for an insanity defense. One psychologist diagnosed him with alcohol dependence and persistent major depression and PTSD as a result of his service in Iraq. The psychologist believed Belew was hoping to be killed by police on the day of the shooting. The other psychologist found evidence of a possible personality disorder. The Sixth District Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s order. In his dissent, Justice William O’Neill argued the decision by the appeals court should have been reversed and remanded to the trial court for a new sentencing hearing that “properly” takes into consideration Belew’s service record and PTSD diagnosis. ”We are here today because of the tragic events that led to his conviction,” O’Neill wrote. “It is without question, and well supported in the record, that this troubled throwaway from society wanted to commit suicide by cop. There is no other explanation for why and individual would open fire on two approaching well-trained, well-armed police officers. He failed. Rather than dying, Belew received a nonfatal bullet to the chest – and not one of the officers was struck. He took responsibility for his actions and pled guilty to several offenses but received an aggregate sentence of 27 years in prison that was far harsher than it should have been.” Belew’s “less-than-honorable discharge deprived him of the medical assistance from the federal Department of Veterans Affairs that he so desperately needed,” O’Neill wrote. Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor agreed with Lanzinger’s separate dissent that the Supreme Court should have affirmed the appeals court decision to uphold the conviction.

Art projects to be followed by music fest Continued from front page Public arts gaining momentum Why all these public arts in an East Toledo community many suburban, rural, and even west side residents believe is the pit of Northwest Ohio? Because the people involved want to change that. “I feel like it’s taking off quicker than we thought it would, and it’s been project after project, and we’re thinking, ‘Wow, what are we going to do next?” LeFever said. “We’re working on the initial planning stages for the mural on First and Main and that’s going to be a pretty big project. “Honestly, this neighborhood is everything to us. We live here, we work here, we want to be successful, we want our community positive and happy, and I feel like art is our trade, art is our talent, and that is the best way that we can make improvements,” she said. It starts with art, but East Toledo Family Center community builder and One Voice for East Toledo leader Jodi Gross says it doesn’t have be just art. But, it’s makes for a good catalyst, she adds. “It’s nice to see those visuals,” Gross said. “It does clean it up with the trash cans and the benches now — it just shows up. Does everything have to be art? I think no, but it adds color and I think just adds to the neighborhood. “I think the important piece is that it needs to be unique to East Toledo and showing that things are being done and that everybody can work together to make this stuff happen. That’s probably one of the important things because it takes a lot of people and logistics to get these projects completed,” Gross continued. Of course, one worry is the possibility vandals will come along and wreak havoc on the trash cans, which are not bolted down. They are, however, heavy, weighing about 300 pounds each when empty. Some are already damaged, too.

“It’s harder to notice now that it’s been painted, but a number of them have the top edges chipped and they are broken from people tipping them over,” Craig said.

“I got the city to buy new liners because some of the liners were actually just store bought-trash cans inside there. They look much, much nicer.” There’s another reason LeFever believes, or hopes, that the artwork will not get defaced — public pride. “We really hope that doesn’t happen,” LeFever said. “I believe once you beautify things, people take pride in them. We’re just not going to stop some dumb kids from doing something silly.” Also playing a role was the East Toledo Club, which provided funding for the supplies for the bench project. Roger Dodsworth, an assistant director at the Family Center, says the East Toledo Club has money to offer to other groups wishing to complete beautification projects on Main Street. One Voice has also included arts and entertainment in its strategies for the neighborhoods, along with housing surveys it is currently conducting to inventory property conditions. “We did play a little bit of a role,” Gross said. “Originally, some of the One Voice strategies included some arts pieces of that. Mike (Craig) was very instrumental in doing that — he’s the one who took the lead on that, but we had talked about those as our strategies. “I think it’s great and I think it’s going to be very good for East Toledo. He’s already made some things happen. If he can keep progressing, I think it’s really nice that he’s working with LeSo,” Gross continued. “I think we’re really trying to make a difference with these housing surveys, because people are seeing the volunteers that are out there on Saturday mornings. We’ve noticed that there are some places that are kind of cleaning up and doing some things that weren’t before, so we have to get to those folks. The renters, the landlords, all have to get together, especially if they have a vested interest in East Toledo.”

Pillich talks about veterans’ issues at Dunberger Post


Continued from front page the group six months ago, pointed out she has never seen the proposed plans. She requested a copy for herself and the other new council member, Jackie Macko, so the two could make informed decisions in the future.

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor State Rep. Connie Pillich, from the Cincinnati area, swung by the American Legion – Christ Dunberger Post No. 537 on Thursday to discuss veterans’ issues. Pillich, who is a candidate for Ohio treasurer, has introduced legislation to improve the lives of veterans. She spent eight years in the Air Force, first as a lieutenant, then a captain. She was stationed in the United States as well as overseas. “I went in as a second lieutenant, and served in support of Operation Desert Storm. I’ve made it my focus to help our veterans and make sure we do everything to help their families as well,” she said. Pillich is doing roundtable discussions across the state to address veterans affairs, with a focus on finances. “I talk about the financial issues. We all know how hard it is to be in the military. I didn’t own anything other than what I had in my car. It was very easy to get a loan, but it was a lot of work to pay that off. It was very stressful for a young lieutenant. We were pretty young when we went in. I worried about my finances for about a year. I had one credit card. My car broke down. I had to max out my credit card to get my car fixed. I was lucky I didn’t have anyone to support. It was just me. So think of these young people in the military who have families.” Pillich said there should be bipartisan support for legislation for veterans. “There is no Republican way or Democratic way to do things. It’s just the right way. It’s not about politics. It’s about getting the mission done. It’s the same approach we should use in the Legislature. About 30 percent of the veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan report they have financial challenges when they come back. They certainly learned how to put the mission first when they were on active

They didn’t learn how dangerous it is to use your credit cards, they didn’t learn how interest rates can multiply your debt. So we need to make sure we provide more financial literacy opportunities for our military, both on active duty and in the guard and reserves.” Eligible veterans who qualify should know about the Veterans’ Bonus, which she introduced in the Legislature in 2009. “We think about 90,000 veterans still qualify, but have not yet applied. We want to make sure we reach out to everyone. This is the last year for veterans of the Iraq war to apply. Time is running out. You might fill out your application, but you may need supporting documentation,” she said. “And it might take you some time to get it. So we want everyone to apply as soon as possible. I want everyone to put the word out that this bonus is available.” For more information on the Veterans’ Bonus, call 877-Ohiovet (644-6838), or 419-216-6990.

Applications can also be downloaded on the website “” “It doesn’t matter if you’re done with your service, or still on active duty,” she said. Other initiatives she introduced into the Legislature include providing unemployment insurance for military spouses. “The spouse works to make ends meet. But when members of the military are transferred, the spouse has to quit. The average spouse loses six to nine months of wages in every transfer. And that can be devastating for a military family. Ohio is only a handful of states that expressly prohibits military spouses from getting compensation,” she said. She would also like to see Ohio recognize commercial or professional licenses from other states. “We’ve introduced legislation to require that. There are lots of things we can do, very minor laws we can pass, that can have a major difference for military families.”

Ohio 163 water line project The state recently awarded an Ohio Public Works Issue 2 grant to fund construction of Phase 2 of the Ohio 163 water line east of the village. Advertising can begin after July 15 and work is expected to be finished this fall. The estimated project cost is $649,000. The village received a $324,000 grant. The cash payout for Oak Harbor is $162,000, according to the grant. To cover that, the village also applied for and received an Ohio Public Works Commission loan. Loan terms include zero percent interest and semi-annual payments over 20 years, according to Genzman. High grass at solar panel field Councilman Fickert continued his campaign to force Solar Planet to cut the grass on village land where the company placed solar panels. Fickert has often noted this spring and summer the hypocrisy of enforcing maintenance violations among residents when the same rules are not applied to this property under public ownership. Despite many pleas last summer, the company mowed the lawn once last fall. A portion of the mowing is done under the panels but standing water is hampering work around the panels, Genzman reported. “Do we afford all of the citizens on the maintenance violation list that type of time,” Fickert asked. No, Genzman answered. Councilman Jim Seaman suggested checking out the cost of spraying and giving the company that option.

Lake coach’s daughter co-writer

Licavolis, local gangsters featured in ‘Holy Toledo’ By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Charissa Gracyk has the blonde hair and good looks to be in front of a Hollywood movie camera, but that’s not her style. “Only behind the camera for me,” says Gracyk, 40, the older of Lake girls’ basketball coach Jim Gracyk’s two children. Charissa aspires to make it in the City of Angels – lord knows she’s been trying – as a screenwriter, producer or director – and now she’s getting her shot. “I admire her perseverance,” Jim says, “She has written some really awesome scripts. You just have to crack the nut one time, come up with something. She’s written horror flicks, chick flicks – she wrote a novel about pirates. She’s done a knockout job of trying to do it the right way, but I think out there you got to have blood in the game, some relative somewhere, in order to really make things happen. It’s a tough business to crack.” The Encino, California resident, a graduate of Notre Dame Academy and the University of Toledo’s School of Journalism, won’t dispute that. “It’s really difficult,” Charissa says of her quest for solid footing in the big-time entertainment industry. “It’s difficult to write a script and get it to people. It really is all about who you know. You have to build a network and get connections and establish relationships. If you don’t have that, you’re just going to be typing a script and putting it in a drawer.” After graduating from UT in 1996, Gracyk and her cousin, Gillian Perdeau, moved to Boston in 2002 and stayed there almost six years. Gracyk immersed herself into writing at ultimately met screenwriter Mike Cerrone. “Mike wrote ‘Me, Myself and Irene’ and works with the Farrelly brothers (Peter and Bobby),” Gracyk says. “We got to meet them. Peter said, ‘If you’re excited about writing, you’re on the wrong coast.’ He put that through to us to move West, and so we did. We moved to Encino in 2002.” Gracyk says she and Perdeau have been writing screenplays since 1997. “It started off as a joke,” Gracyk says. “We’re both huge horror movie fans, and bad movie after bad movie was coming out. We thought, ‘We can do better than that.’ We’re self-taught. We sat down and started writing one and finished it. I found out about a contest and I submitted ours and we placed fifth out of about 800 (entries). We thought, ‘Maybe we should be doing this.’” Gracyk has worked at a number of jobs to help pay the bills since she transplanted to Southern California including being dog walker, merchandising for a handbag company, working in retail and in a flower shop. “You name it,” Gracyk says, “I’ve probably done it. Anything to keep a paycheck while I write.” Gracyk and Perdeau have written a movie “short” entitled “Holy Toledo,” a story about the interaction between 1930s Toledo bootlegger Jack Kennedy Sr. and the Yonnie Licavoli gang. Gracyk is directing the short and soon hopes to turn it into a full-blown Hollywood movie. Family ties One of the characters in the short,

William Wallace, is an uncle of Gracyk’s mother, Tina. “Growing up, our family talked about all these stories about our family and how they were involved with the Kennedys and Licavolis,” Gracyk says. “When we started writing, my grandma (Mary Hoffman) and great aunt (Eleanor Cymbolin) said, ‘This is the stuff you need to be writing about.’ They talked about my great uncle Will. He stored liquor for both sides, the Licavoli gang and for Jack Kennedy. The Licavoli gang found out, so they wanted to teach Will a lesson. Jack and the Licavoli gang were rivals. “They kidnapped Will’s girlfriend (Kitty) and held her for ransom. We made a short film about all of that.” The 17-minute short introduces viewers to prohibition-era Toledo involving the Kennedy and Licavoli gangs. Gracyk says her ultimate goal is to “come to Toledo and film Jack Kennedy’s story for a feature.” “We have it written,” she says, “It’s a two-hour movie and we plan to come to Toledo and film the entire thing on location. We need to get the word out and get investors and get people excited about what we’re doing. We wanted do a short and have a premier to let everyone know our next step, and then do a feature about Jack Kennedy and Licavoli and what happened. Kennedy was gunned down in Point Place in 1933.” Gracyk says her research on Toledo bootleggers and the Kennedy and Licavoli gangs included reading two books by local author Ken Dickson as well as old newspaper articles.

“I got to speak with Ken, and he’s very well informed about the subject,” Gracyk says. The 17-minute short was shot in Los Angeles and Gracyk says she received assistance from film producer Kevin Cooper, who is from Toledo. Raising enough money to produce a full-length feature film on the subject is an ongoing process. “When we get some ‘talent’ attached, we have a producer out here who is willing to match funds,” Gracyk says. “If we can raise $1 million or a million and a half in Toledo or through other connections, an (L.A.) producer is going to match that.” Gracyk says she couldn’t be happier with the way “Holy Toledo” has turned out. “We have such a great crew and a great cast,” she says. “It looks amazing. Keith Shaw is one of our executive producers and he has a lot of experience and connections. We called in a lot of favors, and a lot of people who make a lot of money practically worked for free to help us. We have a composer who composed all the music, and a special effects guy came in and did some amazing stuff.” “Holy Toledo” will be shown to the public Tues., Jul. 15 at the historic Ohio Theatre, located at 3114 Lagrange St. in the Polish International Village. There is no cost to attend, and any donations will be given to the Ohio Theatre Restoration Fund. “I’m real excited to film the feature in Toledo,” Gracyk says. “We had a lot of gang stuff going on here, comparable to Al Capone in Chicago. It’s kind of an untouched subject.”

Port Clinton men charged

Two Port Clinton men were arrested on various charges resulting from a joint investigation between the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and the Ottawa County Drug Task Force. Robert McClanahan, 46, of 317 E. 6th St., and Cody Brengartner, 20, of 416 E. 3rd St., were both charged with criminal trespass and possession of criminal tools. Authorities received information from a source that the individuals were planning to steal gasoline from the Oak Harbor Golf Course. Officers maintained surveillance on the golf course area and caught the individuals stealing gas from a large tank. Both subjects were incarcerated at the Ottawa County Jail.


JULY 14,

New chief For the next few years, Wilkins was unable to resolve lingering hard feelings of many in the department. In 2009, after Brown was defeated by current Mayor Mike Seferian, who had received widespread support from firefighters, Wilkins announced he would resign the following year.

As soon as I was 21, I went down, put my application in, and was hired.

When Ed Ellis became Oregon’s fire chief in 2010, he had some work to do to improve the department’s morale. Many firefighters had fought against his predecessor, Bill Wilkins, when former Mayor Marge Brown appointed him to the chief’s position in November 2006. Wilkins, who was from Defiance, had only been assistant fire chief for months when he was promoted to chief. Firefighters had packed council chambers on Nov. 20 of that year to slam the administration’s hiring policies, which they believed had excluded them from applying for the positions of chief and assistant chief. Firefighters said they were told by Brown and former City Administrator Ken Filipiak that they would get six months notice when such positions became available so they could apply for them. Yet Brown announced Wilkin’s appointment at the Nov. 20 meeting just minutes after she had announced the retirement of outgoing Fire Chief Ray Walendzak. It left firefighters seething. Ellis, who was president of the Oregon part-time firefighters’ association, spoke for the rank and file at the meeting and let it be known the department was not happy. “I don’t believe there were six minutes of Chief Walendzak’s notice of retirement when there was the appointment of a new chief,” Ellis had said. “This fire department has been led by men who started in the volunteer department, pursued their training in the department, then went on to be chief of the department. They built a fire department that’s considered one of the best in Ohio. Why is this administration so intent on tearing it apart, giving command to someone who had nothing to do with building it?”

Seferian, who picked Ellis to be his new fire chief, met with considerable resistance from some members on council, particularly those who had supported Brown and Wilkins. The only way to get council to go along with Ellis as the new chief is that he would serve in the top post for Seferian’s first term. After that, he would retire. After Seferian won re-election last November, Ellis, 66, was told by Seferian that he had to honor the agreement. In March, just short of 45 years in the fire department, Ellis’s career came to an end. “When Mayor Seferian got re-elected last November, it became apparent that one faction of government wanted me to move on,” Ellis told The Press recently. It’s too bad. I didn’t do a bad job. But that’s the way it goes. He said he had been able to restore morale in the department, his top goal, during the years he was chief. “There was a lot of turmoil before I became chief. That was the primary reason I think I was picked for the job. I came out of the ranks and tried to get everything back on an even keel,” he said. “We restored some of the harmony back in the fire department. Not all of it. We have 100 members. You can’t make all of them happy. That’s just the way it is.” Seferian agreed. “Ed is a nice guy. As chief, he did fill the need at the time as a healer of some

of the wounds we suffered from the past transition with Wilkins. And that’s what his role was at that time. Quite frankly, we always figured he would fulfill his duty in a three year period. Actually, he was there approaching four years. So we got over that hump, and he did a good job to get us there,” said Seferian. No injuries Besides boosting morale, Ellis said he was pleased there were no firefighters injured during his tenure. “We didn’t have anyone injured, which I thought was great. We had some major fires. We probably ran about 8,000 calls all together in that time frame. I had one guy in an auto accident, but other than that, we had no problems in the fire department as far as injuries,” he said. The department also established “soft billing” of residents’ health insurance companies for rescue services as a way to counter increased costs in the department. “That was a big thing in the city. With cuts in state aid, we needed another revenue source, and we got it through with no problems. It’s fair.” One of the changes he’s seen during his firefighting career is a significant reduction in the number of fires. “The EMS has become the mainstay of the fire department. Fires have gone down drastically. Basically, a fire department like ours is a whole lot of EMS work. But we still have to be ready to have training in place for firefighting. When I joined, we didn’t even have a rescue squad at the No. 3 Fire Station,” he said. Ellis became a firefighter on May 26, 1969. “My mom and dad had moved near the No. 3 Fire Station off Bayshore Road. And a lot of neighborhood men at that time were firefighters,” he said, as well as a couple of friends. “As soon as I was 21, I went down, put my application in, and was hired. I’ve been there ever since. I was in Oregon the entire time for almost 45 years,” he said. “I was really happy working with the people I’ve worked with all those years. It’s been a great experience.”

JULY 14, 2014

Owner of new Apple store started out selling on eBay What started out in his bedroom last year selling computers on eBay has now turned into a full time business for Michael Oberdick, a 2007 Eastwood graduate and owner of The Apple Outlet in Bowling Green. The store focuses on pre-owned Apple products. Unlike other buy-sell stores, Oberdick doesn’t purchase devices and inventory from people who bring them in off the street. Instead, he purchases his inventory from Apple-Certified vendors who get the devices from companies which had leased them and were looking to upgrade or purchase new. Before selling his inventory, Oberdick checks every computer to be sure it is operating correctly and will install, in some cases, the newest available software. He carries Apple desktops, laptops, tablets and iPhones and accessories. He recently was approved to set up and activate new phones in or out of contract. He also repairs other brands and iPhones.

eek: Don’t Put Your Trust in Things of this World

Young children seem to have the utmost trust in their parents. For instance, they know that whenever they are not feeling well, their parents are there to comfort them and do whatever is necessary to make them better. A parent's love is special, and it seems that there is nothing that they would not do for their children. As adults, we should remember that all things of this world are temporary and that there is nothing we can truly depend on or be absolutely sure of. A loved one passing away, or finances being low, or a serious illness could turn our world upside down in an instant. However, we should take heart; there is good news: we are God's children, and His


love for us is even greater than that of our parents'. And although it takes enormous courage to put our complete trust in God, we must believe that He wants only what is good for us. What is required of us is to see God's work in everything we do, and develop perfect trust to accept the trials of his life. The first step in increasing our trust in God is to thank Him daily for His many blessings and to go to Him with our anxieties. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. N.I.V. Proverbs 3:5-6

The right track? To the editor: For at least three nights, there have been fireworks going off in Walbridge until after 1 a.m. I thought there was a law against noise after 10 p.m. I also thought there was a law against having certain types of fireworks. Apparently, the police officers do not check out where these are coming from and do not care about it. I don’t know how many people can sleep through this loud noise, but my family cannot sleep until they stop. We can put up with them on the 4th of July, but certainly not before and after that date. Also, I read in the paper that Walbridge is not spraying for mosquitoes this year due to the cost of repaving Union Street which, of course, is overdue to be repaired. I would think they could still spray for mosquitoes since they have become a serious problem. They have sprayed in Walbridge for many years and it was never a problem before, and other things still got done. As far as priorities go in this town, the previous mayor focused on the ball field and Railway Park, to get drainage from standing water, and the swimming pool and curbs in town. We have a new mayor who does not seem to accomplish any more than the last one. Whenever you ask him about taking care of something like the alleys with the potholes in them, it is not in the budget. The council members don’t seem to earn their paychecks either. I gave up going to the meetings because it was a waste of my time. If they want to have people move to Walbridge and generate some more tax money for the town, they need to address

some of these ongoing problems here. Other people in this town would agree with me but don’t want to say anything. This is not the “town on the right track,” as it should be. Ernie Frohlich Walbridge Editor’s note: Mayor Ed Kolanko told The Press he checked police dispatching records for the July 4th weekend and found no complaint calls for noise and fireworks.

Disappointing To the editor: The Democratic Party’s role in labeling or banning Genetically Modified Organisms has become extremely disappointing and angering. Many, including President Obama, promised to either ban or label products that use genetically engineered ingredients. Hillary Clinton recently voiced her support for genetically modified organisms at a biotech convention. The only benefit coming from this is going toward corporate wallets. It was a good day for Monsanto. Unfortunately for the rest of Americans, we never gained the right to know what is in our food. When 60 or so other countries, both industrialized and developing, have heavy restrictions or outright bans on GMOs, it doesn’t seem like it should be too much to ask for the simple right to know what we are eating, whether it is safe or not.

Given the circumstances, I find it impossible to believe that such things do not cause cancer and mutations in humans. Surveys taken by the Non-GMO Project consistently prove that most Americans want GMO labeling and our government is selfishly failing to tend to our needs. If Democrats choose to sell out and push aside their promises, I will be more than happy to give my vote to the Green Party. Amelia Bockey Walbridge Editor’s note: The letter is referring to a vote in the U.S. Senate on an amendment offered by Bernie Sanders (I – Vermont) to let states require labels on food or beverages made with genetically modified ingredients. The amendment was defeated.

A customer’s choice To the editor: Recently, I ate at a restaurant and at the bottom of the bill, it was printed what amount a 20 percent tip would be and what a 15 percent tip would be. I know other restaurants are doing this also. I’m sure it is a good idea because some customers are not certain how much to tip. I paid my bill with two $50 bills and when I received my change from the waitress, I discovered that she had taken a 20 percent tip. That is not legal; that is stealing. It is up to me to decide how much of my money I will tip – poorly, medium or

very generously. That waitress was excellent and helped us a lot. When she stole the tip, she cheated herself out of a dollar or two extra that I would have given her. I don’t think I will return to that restaurant, but if I do, I will have plenty of smaller bills so I can pay my bill exactly and leave the tip I choose to leave. Louis Agoston Toledo

Build branch instead This is in regards to the Oregon Library expansion. Here is a library that cost $1.3 million to build in 1989. This year, there is going to be an expansion added at a cost of $2.5 million. The inconvenience of closing this branch for a year is really not necessary. Moving it to a temporary location at the old Wynn Elementary school does not seem like a wise use of tax dollars. Why not look at adding another branch? At the rate Oregon is growing it would be very beneificial. The Locke Library in East Toledo cost $1.9 million in 2007. I'm sure that it would not cost much more than the planned expansion to build another new one. Paul J. Gibbs Sr. East Toledo

Correction In the June 30 edition of The Press, the article “Oregon Ok’s more commercial zoning on Navarre” should have said that Oregon Council also approved the appointment of Mark Mullins as the city’s new assistant fire chief. The Press regrets the error.

Attitude is everything when you’re meeting challenges Have you ever felt like giving up? Are there situations you have felt are too difficult, too stressful, too hard, too exhausting, or too frustrating to continue? Do you seek out the path of least resistance? The strategy of giving up is learned as a young child. We first utilized it when facing situations we didn’t want to deal with or felt we couldn’t handle. We added, “I can’t do it,” to our conditioned responses which in turn shaped our attitude. After giving up, someone may have attempted to help you feel better by saying, “It’s OK, at least you tried.” Unfortunately, their comment served to reinforce giving up as a legitimate option when facing challenges. This did you a tremendous disservice. The only time you fail is when you give up. Therefore, learning to give up is learning to fail. This conditioning robed you of many successes that could have been yours if you had just kept going. Attitude is everything. Your actions follow your beliefs. If you don’t believe you can, you won’t. Conversely, if you believe you can, you will. Utilize this connection by cultivating a conviction that it’s not over so long as you keep moving ahead one step at a time. The only direction is forward. When facing adversity, challenges, problems, or obstacles, the action you take next is what matters. In order to keep going, you must abandon the old habits you learned as a kid. Now you know better. Every problem has a solution and there is a way to conquer each obstacle. Regardless of what you may face, it’s not over as long as you are ready and willing to take the next step. If you get knocked down, get back up. If you are overwhelmed, take smaller steps. If you don’t know what to do next, study successful examples of what

Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden other people have done who have been in the same predicament. Don’t speak poorly to yourself. Your mind believes whatever you tell it. Putting yourself down, telling yourself that something is impossible, or proclaiming you can’t handle something virtually guarantees an unsuccessful outcome. Use the power of self-talk to enhance your success. The phrases you should be using include, “I can do this,” “I will find a solution,” “There is an answer and I will find it,” and “I am willing to do whatever it takes to pull myself out of this.” Another factor you will be exposed to is advice from other people. Unfortunately, many people are negative. They offer a variety reasons why you can’t or shouldn’t succeed. There are also jealous people who don’t want you to succeed. And then there are those individuals who may be well intentioned but lack the expertise or experience necessary to offer any productive advice. Ignore the naysayers. It’s common to experience pressure to follow their advice. Don’t argue with them or try to justify your position. Thank them for their concern and then follow the path that best accommodates your needs. Those who have already successfully dealt with the situation you are facing are the ones in the best position to provide effective guidance. Their experience contains invaluable lessons you can directly benefit from.

History is filled with countless examples of people who gave up when they were just around the corner from success. It’s difficult to accurately ascertain how close you are to success. So you must always keep going. How much or how little time is required is irrelevant. In sports, athletes often have come from behind to achieve victory in the last seconds. The same principle applies to you also. It’s not over as long as you refuse to give up.

What’s the hold up on the new Oregon Senior Center? Oregon voters passed a senior services levy in November which will generate $250,000 a year. The city is flush with more than $10 million in cash reserves. So, where’s the new senior center? That’s what Citizens for an Oregon Senior Center want to know. Marge Ramirez, on behalf of the group, sent a letter to Mayor Mike Seferian and city council requesting a public meeting so citizens can voice their opinions on location and services. The letter, sent May 12, requested that meeting be held in late May. It’s July and still no meeting, but it’s not because city council has forgotten its seniors. The issue is complicated. The citizens committee suggests a number of options for a new center including constructing one comparable to the 22,000 square-foot Sylvania Senior Center, one with enough room to offer social activities such as dancing, exercise classes, computer lessons and other hobbyist pursuits. That may be an overreach. Nearly 68,000 people live in the City of Sylvania and Sylvania Township, the two entities the senior center serves. Oregon’s population is about 19,500 with 3,500 age 65 and older. It’s clear, however, something needs to be done. Councilman Dennis Walendzak, a member of the Senior Services Advisory Group studying the issue, says city officials have discussed expanding the James “Wes” Hancock Senior Center for almost 15 years. Now, given the influx of new funds, he says, “The time is right to make this decision.” The advisory group consists of city administrator Mike Beazley, councilman Terry Reeves, senior center director Paula Benton and representatives from ProMedica Bay Park Hospital, Mercy St, Charles Hospital, the YMCA and the Area Office on Aging. The group’s goal is to help the community determine the best way to offer senior services cost-effectively. Just because the city has money to build a Taj Mahal doesn’t mean it should. Beazley said government isn’t always the best landowner.

SOURCE: Area Office on Aging Survey, 2006 Maintenance and operating costs tend to escalate over time. “It might be that the smartest and best way is for the city to become a tenant in a facility that already exists in the city. You can try things and change them over time. Some thing that may be essential in 2014 may not be as much in demand in 2025,” he said. At the risk of oversimplification, a number of women in The Greatest Generation don’t drive or use computers, whereas nearly all Baby Boomers do. Transportation and computer classes may be important today, but in a few years not so much. Socialization activities such as dancing and card playing can change with each generation. Today’s younger generation does much of its socialization through electronic devices. This is not to say more space isn’t needed for meals, recreational or socialization programs. Just that, that space should

by John Szozda


be determined by needs, not by a desire to keep up with Sylvania. The more cost-effective option may be to offer senior services in multiple locations. For example, water aerobics at the Y. Why include a pool in a new senior center and siphon off members from a community asset? Currently, the city sponsors the Golden Eagle Card, which provides seniors with discounts for aerobics and cardio classes. An estimated 600 Oregon seniors belong to the Y, with 59 holding Golden Eagle cards. Such an approach makes a community asset stronger and gives the city flexibility to change programming to meet the needs of seniors now and in the future. Can this work with other programming partners, say Oregon City Schools, for example? Beazley calls this approach a “senior center without walls.” Delivering services is one of two issues

the advisory committee is exploring. The other is whether to expand the current senior center located in the northeast corner of the city, or build a new center, or lease existing space. The Citizens for an Oregon Senior Center has compiled a list of possible locations in lieu of expanding the current center. They include: leasing space at the old Wynn School, the YMCA, the vacant Pharm store at Starr and Wheeling, or vacant FoodTown on Navarre; or constructing a new building at the municipal complex or at the corner of Isaac Streets and Dustin. They would like to see open meetings to discuss the pros and cons of these sites. Walendzak adds one more—The Educational Service Center of Lake Erie West, home to the Challenger Learning Center, at the corner of Seaman and Wynn. Walendzak said classrooms, a gym and a lunch area are available for lease. Which site would best serve a city that encompasses 28 square miles? Some are closer to the population center of the city while some are closer to the geographic center. The advisory group is also grappling with this issue. Enough already, the seven members of Citizens for an Oregon Senior Center told me at a meeting last month. This issue has been discussed for 15 years, the voters have spoken to increase services and the city has the funds to build. Let’s get on with the public meetings to determine a location. This seemingly slow pace is a “fair criticism of government,” Beazley said. “But, it’s important to get it right. Getting it right is better than getting it fast.” Look for public meetings in August.

WWII nurse recalls service as hard but rewarding By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer Like many veterans, Thelma Brown doesn’t like to talk too much about her wartime service. At 93, she prefers to live in the present, enjoying time with her husband, family and friends. However, on July 17, Thelma will pull out her photo album and share her memories and experiences as a young WWII nurse as a guest of the Auxiliary at Christ Dunberger American Legion Post #537, 4926 Pickle Rd., Oregon (corner of Wynn and Pickle Roads). The public is invited to the presentation, which will begin at 1 p.m. and will include time for questions and answers. The longtime Walbridge resident who now lives in Rossford, was born in Indiana as Thelma Horner. Her father, a WWI veteran died when she was just 6. Her mother, unable to support her children after her husband died, placed them for care with the state. As a resident of a state-run home for children, Thelma’s college tuition at Ball State University was paid for – though she worked to pay for books and expenses. She studied nursing, along with education, home economics and other disciplines. As she prepared to graduate in the spring of 1944, she was compelled by the Army’s public calls for nurses to join up. “They were begging for nurses to come in,� Thelma said. “They were even threatening to draft, but they never had to because enough girls signed up. “I guess in part because my dad was a veteran, and also because I had been on my own for some time, I decided I would go ahead and join the Army Nurse Corps,� she said. She signed up through the Red Cross, but had to pass her state nursing boards before she could officially join the service. “I got the paperwork that I’d passed the state boards in December 1944, and not long after, I got a letter from the government saying I was selected to go into the service and then got my orders,� she said. Her decision drew mixed reactions from her family. “My mother was not very happy, but she knew this was what I wanted to do, so she respected my wishes,� she said. On Feb. 8, 1945, Thelma reported to Fort Knox in Kentucky for basic training. “Though a number of girls from my graduating class joined the service, I didn’t really know anyone at Fort Knox,� she said. “I was just 22 – I was a little nervous but I knew the Army would take care of me.� After six weeks of basic training, she was assigned to Wakeman General Hospital, at Camp Atterbury, Indiana, which during World War II was the Army’s largest Convalescent Hospital. “It was a big facility – at times, there were over 10,000 patients there,� she said. “The wards had 70 to 90 patients on them. “When I first arrived, there weren’t a lot of nurses – Red Cross nurse aides helped out with the nursing care – but within two

Thelma Horner (fourth from left) and fellow members of the Army Nurse Corps leave basic training at Fort Knox, Kentucky in March 1945 on the way to nursing assignments. Horner, now Thelma Brown, will discuss her experiences July 17 at a program at the Christ Dunberger Post in Oregon. (Submitted photo) or three months, more nurses came in,� Thelma said. One of her assignments was working in the receiving ward where patients were evaluated and received testing before being sent off to the proper hospital ward for treatment. “We’d often have 70 or so patients in there who came from the Pacific, Italy, England, France, Africa – from all over – unlike in WWI, where they didn’t have the transportation and facilities to bring so many injured back so quickly,� she said. “We also had to serve a prisoner of war ward – there was a German prisoner of war camp there,� she said. “Fortunately, many of them spoke English, but they also had interpreters. “Throughout my 14 months of service, I worked in quite a few wards – neurosurgery, plastic surgery, a lot of burn cases – a lot of things we didn’t train for in the hospitals at home because we just didn’t see those kinds of injuries,� she said. “Initially, I felt under-prepared. I knew the basics of nursing, but you had all these boys – some of them were in pretty bad shape physically, mentally and emotionally. “Lots of times, more than anything, they just wanted to talk,� she said. “They were young, injured, scared and homesick. I think, like most veterans, they felt comfortable talking about their experiences with someone else in the service.� Despite the magnitude and gravity of the assignment, she enjoyed the work. “In a way, it was very difficult, but on the other

hand, it was very rewarding,� she said. “I worked with a lot of young men who had facial and jaw injuries, which made it difficult for them to eat and drink,� she said. “At the time, they were just starting to do plastic surgery to help patients with shrapnel and the other kinds of wounds the soldiers were sustaining. “I found it so interesting \that they were pioneering these new techniques so they could help get them back to civilian life,� she said. “There was one patient I took care of – who over time became a friend. He had a facial injury so severe that prevented him from drinking out of a cup for five years.� Another patient, who was at the hospital for treatment of a leg injury sustained while serving with the 27th Infantry Division on the Pacific island of Saipan, also became a favorite – so much so she eventually married the handsome young Stanley Nowak and followed him back to his hometown of Toledo after the war ended. The couple settled down and raised a family, and Thelma continued her nursing career, working at St. Charles Hospital from 1956 through 1985. Stanley passed away in 1983 and Thelma and remarried to Ken Brown. Over the years, Thelma had kept in touch with and event gotten together with former patients from Wakeman General Hospital, though they’ve recently lost touch. “Most of them are probably gone now,� she said.

Dangerous mix: kids’ sports and parents From the American Counseling Association Most kids handle their enthusiasm for sports pretty well. They play hard, get excited over wins and sad about losses, but usually just have a good time, enjoying some exercise and healthy competition. Now if only all that were true for their parents. We’ve likely all seen reports of fights during little league games, soccer referees being attacked and coaches facing verbal abuse or worse – violent reactions not from the kids, but from the parents. While it’s understandable that parents want their children to do well and be treated fairly, some parents have made their child’s sports so important that their emotions override their judgment and they end up reacting violently to what happened on the playing field. The source of such emotions aren’t difficult to understand. If a child isn’t performing up to parental expectations, the parent may feel frustrated. Such feelings can be complicated by the parent’s projecting his or her own athletic dreams and fantasies onto the child. When that happens, it’s often a sign that sports are playing too important a role in family life. A good first question to ask is whether the family’s life revolves around the children’s sports. Are the kids being “pushed,� not just to play sports, but to train harder and to excel, maybe at the expense of school work or other activities? Do you find that you have mood swings associated with your kids’ success or failures in sports, and that your children are rewarded, or teased, mocked and criticized, depending on how well they performed? Do you blame the coaches if your child’s team loses and make fun of children who don’t play at your child’s level? If the answer is yes to some or all of these questions, there’s a good chance that you’re making sports too important a part of your family’s life. And if you have had thoughts about having reacting violently to other parents, coaches, or referees when things have gone poorly, it’s a clear indication that help is needed. Try talking to a professional counselor specializing in family counseling. He or she can help you readjust your perspective on your expectations and your children’s sports, and can help reestablish a healthy emotional balance between sports and your parenting style.

Do you have questions about COPD, medications, asthma or pulmonary rehabilitation?

Volunteer nurses, parenting instructors, advocates sought Heartbeat of Toledo, a pregnancy resource center which offers free information and support services to women facing pregnancies and help to parents and babies in need, is in need of volunteers to serve as nurses, parenting instructors and advocates. “Our greatest need right now is for nurses – RNs and LPNs – who would do health assessments and pregnancy tests for the women who come to our offices,” said Pat Todak, executive director. Heartbeat also needs volunteer advocates who will meet with women facing unplanned pregnancies to provide information and emotional support, and to meet one-on-one with new and expectant moms and dads to facilitate prenatal and parenting lessons. “Our parenting program is done using a national curriculum called ‘Earn While You Learn,’” Todak said. “Using DVDs, workbooks, and worksheets, we help new and expectant parents learn how to be the best possible moms and dads. With each lesson they complete, the parents earn points that they can use to get the baby items they need, including clothing, diapers, formula, pack and plays, car seats, and more.” Volunteers are asked to commit to working four hours per week, either weekly or every other week. For more information or to attend a volunteer orientation, call Heartbeat at 419-241-9131. A volunteer application is also available online at

Kohring, who was born, raised and died in Pemberville, was an avid walker, so his family thought it was fitting to have the walk in his home town, his daughter, Lori (Kohring) Laake said. “We are committed to helping find an early detection and cure for this 4th

The Behavioral Health Institute project at Mercy St. Charles Hospital is moving forward rapidly, according to Sarah Bednarski, Public Relations & Internal Communications Manager for Catholic Health Partners Northern Market/Mercy Toledo. The site work has been completed, and in June, the construction crew began to set precast wall sections in place. The outer shell of the building will be completed, and then the interior work will begin later this summer. When complete, the Mercy Behavioral Health Institute will offer comprehensive services, both inpatient and outpatient, in one, centralized location. The new two-story building, which will connect to the main hospital, will include adult, geriatric and dual diagnoses units, comprising 90 beds. Additionally, the 62,000-square-foot institute will offer a partial hospitalization program. Mercy is exploring partnership opportunities with other providers for additional services, Bednarski added.

ProMedica Photo Exhibit featured “ProMedica: Revealing Hunger,” a photo exhibit featuring images by nine Toledo-area residents facing hunger, was the topic of a documentary that aired May 29 on WGTE public television. The exhibit of 27 photos is part of ProMedica’s “Come to the Table” initiative to address hunger as a health issue both locally and nationally. The exhibit debuted in summer 2013 in the Toledo Museum of Art’s Community Gallery. Exhibit participants began with an early 2013 workshop at the museum, where they learned how to use their new cameras along with information about photo composition, lighting, color, and more. After taking photos over several weeks, the

group reconvened at the museum to select the photos that appear in the exhibit. Since the exhibit made its debut, it has been on display both locally and nationally, including a visit to Capitol Hill in February for a national summit ProMedica co-hosted with one of its Come to the Table partners, the Alliance to End Hunger. The photos were used to encourage the summit’s audience of healthcare leaders to join ProMedica in addressing hunger as a health issue – and the federal legislators in attendance to protect food-related policies and programs. “ProMedica: Revealing Hunger” is touring ProMedica hospitals and other venues in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan through early 2015.

Spray sunscreens may be risky In light of the Food and Drug Administration’s announcement that it was investigating the potential risks of spray sunscreens, Consumer Reports is advising parents not to use the products on their children. Of particular concern is the possibility that people might accidentally breathe in the sunscreen ingredients, a risk that’s greatest in children, who – as any parent knows – are more likely to squirm around when they’re being sprayed. Consumer Reports did re-emphasize its longstanding advice that consumers use sprays carefully, by following these tips: • Don’t use sprays on children, unless no other product is available. In that case, spray the sunscreen onto your hands and rub it on. As with all sunscreens, be especially careful on the face, taking care to avoid the eyes and mouth. • Adults can still use sprays—but don’t spray onto the face. Instead, spray on hands and rub it on, making sure to avoid the eyes and mouth. Also, try to avoid inhaling it. • Make sure you apply enough. Consumer Reports testers found that sprays can work well when used properly, but it is harder to make sure that you apply enough, especially when it’s windy. Spraying as much as can be evenly applied, and then repeat, just to be safe.

By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer The Navarre Park tennis courts are getting a workout this summer, thanks to Bobby Johnson and the Navarre Park Tennis Association. Johnson, 62, and members of The Fountain Seventh Day Adventist Church in East Toledo helped form the NPTA last year. The NPTA’s home courts are at Navarre Park. “We created the association in order to promote tennis in the community,” said Johnson, who works in health information technology. “What we wanted to do is create a tennis club that would support the community. We went to the United States Tennis Association and we were granted a community tennis association grant. “The USTA gave us the rights to be a community association. That means we are part of a community and our mission is to provide tennis recreation and educational mentoring for the community. This is one of their membership levels.” The community tennis association grant is designed to support youth tennis, develop training programs and help build new courts or repair existing ones. The USTA’s Midwest section granted funds to the NPTA in 2013, and Johnson was certified as a youth tennis instructor by the Professional Tennis Register organization. “I went through some some training and testing,” Johnson said. “I love tennis, that’s the No. 1 thing. Part of it is I love the community here in East Toledo. I don’t reside here, but The Fountain Seventh Day Adventist Church helps sponsor (the NPTA) in East Toledo.” The NPTA held two tennis sessions for youths last summer, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and had about 30 participants. Youths do not have to live in East Toledo to participate. The NPTA has about 20 kids playing at Navarre Park this summer. Johnson is the instructor, with occasional help from Larry Michaels, who resides on the East Side. “He’s been involved in tennis for a long time,” Johnson said. This year’s summer sessions for the 10-and-under youths runs from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 5:30-6:30 on Wednesdays and Thursdays for ages 11-17. “This year we started a junior team for ages 11-17,” Johnson said. “We have six members, and they will be competing. They are in that age group that is either learning tennis or has played some tennis. We’re hoping to have some tournaments for the 10-and-under group as well. They will try to play it here on July 26. We’ll also ask

different clubs to come in. “I’m excited about the junior group. A couple girls haven’t played much tennis, but do they have talent. I’m looking for the next Venus and Serena (Williams). They are strong and fast, and I’m excited about them.” The NPTA also has an adult (18 and over) league, the Navarre Park Tennis Club, which practices on Sunday at 4 p.m. and every Wednesday at 6 p.m. The club played matches against Sylvania Country Club last Monday and competes in the USTA Midwest Women’s 3.0 League. “This is the second year we’ve played,” Johnson said. “It’s a really nice fellowship. We meet and have a game and a social time. It’s kind of a social network scenario. We have 15 women, and the season runs from May through July 28.” The adult players compete in first and second singles and first, second, and third doubles. “I pair them up, and these are all firstand second-year players,” Johnson said. “We’re playing a level above (their rating level), and that’s on purpose.” Johnson said he would like to see the four Navarre Park courts get a much-need-

ed makeover. “We need five courts,” he said, “and these are in pretty bad shape. They’re playable, but we’ve been fighting with the City for two years to get the courts done. Last year we paid to get them done. This year the City promised to get them done, but they patch worked it and didn’t do a good job of that. We are contemplating building some new ones or getting these resurfaced. “We don’t have a (new) site yet. We are looking at this site to build a new one and add another court. We really would like six or eight courts, and that would mean another location. This side of town really needs more than one (facility). Waite High School uses these courts, and there are a lot of tennis players on this side of town. They’ve been playing with substandard courts for a long time.” Johnson brought the issue up to Mayor D. Michael Collins when the East Toledo Family Center hosted a town hall meeting two weeks ago, which drew 150 people, including residents, city officials and community leaders. Johnson was told by city officials that the cost to resurface the four Navarre Park courts would cost about $30,000.

A.J. Achter selected

Hessman, Carrera to play in Triple A all-star showcase Toledo Mud Hens third baseman Mike Hessman and outfielder Ezequiel Carrera were named to the Triple-A All-Star game, the International League announced Wednesday. Oregon native A.J. Achter (Clay/ Michigan State) was also named to the International League roster. He was elected to represent the Rochester Red Wings as one of two relief pitchers in the All-Star Game. Achter was in Toledo in early May. Achter gave up one hit and no runs in three innings against the Mud Hens, who won that game 7-0 and swept the four-game series from the Red Wings. “I had already had some pretty good memories on that field,’ Achter told Press contributing sportswriter Mark Griffin. “The day I pitched against the Hens, it was Mother’s Day with my mom and both grandmothers in the stands, plus 40 other family members and friends in the stands. It was pretty special and something I’ll never forget.” Achter remembers the Fifth Third Field public address announcer’s intro for Achter. “They announced, ‘Now pitching for Rochester, from Oregon, Ohio, A.J. Achter,” he recalled. “There were a lot of nerves, but once it came time to throw the ball, it was like any other game.” This marks the fourth All-Star selection for Hessman, tying a record held by Lee Stevens, Joe Thurston, and Todd Williams. Hessman hit .258 with 15 home runs and 33 RBI at the time of his selection, and Monday he became in International League's all-time home run hitter with 259 blasts. His 15 home runs this season are tied for second in the International League. He was selected to the All-Star game in 2006-07 with Toledo and in 2012 with Oklahoma City. Carrera is 10th in the International League with a .307 batting average, while also hitting four home runs and 27 RBI. His 33 stolen bases lead the league 13, at the time of the selection. Hessman will start the game at third base, while Carrera will start at one of the three outfield positions.. The contest between the International League and the Pacific Coast League, which will be held at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, will take place on July 16 in Durham, N.C. The contest will be broadcast on MLB Network and 1230 WCWA.

Chopper Schmeltz’ Legion team lookin’ good at 23-11 By Yaneek Smith and J. Patrick Eaken Everything about Coach Don “Chopper” Schmeltz’ Pemberville Freedom Post 183 American Legion baseball team is elite, including the coaches. That includes Schmeltz, his assistant, former Northwood head coach Dave Russell, and another assistant, Eastwood alum Thomas Schmeltz. It includes the team’s players, such as Northern Buckeye Conference Offensive Player of the Year Connor Bowen of Lake, Northwood’s Evan Perkins, Genoa’s Nick Wolfe, Gibsonburg’s Brent Hayward, Cardinal Stritch Catholic’s Grant Curavo and Austin Pratt and Eastwood’s Grant Peters, Ryan Mang and Elijah Brown. Currently 23-11, Pemberville was on a roll after 34 games, finishing 3-2 last weekend in a tournament in Lancaster, Ohio, but not getting out of pool play and into the finals. This past week they were mostly on the road, at Prospect, Ottawa, Findlay, Port Clinton, and then Monday, July 14 against Whitehouse at Anthony Wayne High School. “Things are going pretty well thus far,” said Chopper, who’s been coaching baseball for over 40 years. “We’re playing against some great competition. We’re playing some elite teams and seeing guys that are No. 3 and 4 hitters on their high school teams.” Bowling Green High School alum Andrew Herringshaw is leading Pemberville at the plate with a .386 average, followed by Jordan Watson (North Baltimore), who’s hitting .377. There are currently three players hitting around .340. The team’s leading pitchers include Zach Foster (Elmwood), Hayward, Curavo, Peters, Watson, Nick Watts (Lakota) and Austin Rodesky (Bowling Green). “After you play 20 games or so, you know who can hit and pitch,” Schmeltz said. “It shows up more here more than

(Photo courtesy of Innovations Portrait Studio/ it does in school. You’re seeing the best pitchers all the time. And the good hitters, they’ll adjust and do the job. The ones that are mediocre, it catches up with them.” Schmeltz says one of the most important parts is the bond that players from opposing schools develop with one another while playing together for the summer. If you ever watch the end of a high school baseball game, you’ll notice that a number of players on the opposing teams are acquainted with one another, something that develops from playing Legion or other summer baseball together. Legion baseball is not just for high school players, it’s for college players who are on break after their freshman season —

at least for now. Starting next year, players with a year of college experience behind them will be ineligible for Legion ball, even if they are under 19-years-old, which is the age limit. Two of Pemberville’s players, Foster and Watson, currently play college baseball, but wouldn’t have been able to play next year when the new eligibility rules go into effect. Foster just completed his first season at Ohio Northern University in Ada and Watson just got done with his freshman campaign at Heidelberg University in Tiffin. Coaches say one of the reasons is because college recruiters don’t bother attending games if the player has already signed.

Still, Schmeltz is against the rule change. “It’s important for guys that are freshman (in college) to play,” said Schmeltz, who played Legion ball at the same Pemberville field in the late 1960s with former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who was his teammate. “They get a lot more experience against a lot of 19-year-olds. If they didn’t start or get to play a lot in college, they get to play a lot in the summer,” Schmeltz, also an Eastwood graduate, continued. There are other issues facing Legion teams. Two longtime Northwest Ohio programs, Lima and Fremont, folded this season because of funding issues and a lack of volunteers. Legion directors say the World War II and Korean veterans who used to support the programs are dying off. The Lima team had been in existence for a half century and its games were still covered regularly by the Lima News. In recent years, Legion ball has also had to deal with competition from travel baseball teams and showcase tournaments. The downside includes the high costs to families that are required if their children want to play. In the old days, and still at most Legion halls today, the veterans who make up membership do the fundraising, but a few Northwest Ohio Legion teams are also now requiring a pay to play policy to keep their baseball program running, but costs still generally remain cheaper than other travel baseball. A longtime Legion coach in Pennsylvania, Kevin Manero, wrote, “In so many ways, it appears that parents and their sons now feel they should measure the quality of a baseball program on how much it costs to join it. But does it make sense to pay at least a $2,000 registration fee (sometimes much more) and then dish out more money on top of that for transportation and hotels, only to end up at a college where your counterparts on American Legion teams also landed, after paying much less to get to that point?”

Blazevich prepares for another season as Rocket By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Mike Blazevich was in a good mood on a Tuesday evening, for three reasons. First, he got to play golf with his girlfriend at Maumee Bay. Second, it’s a beautiful night. Third, he shot in the 80s. Not bad for a 20-year-old whose sport of choice is college football. The Cardinal Stritch grad, now a 6-foot, 195-pound sophomore free safety at the University of Toledo, has been working his way up the depth chart on defense after the Rockets redshirted him in 2012. Blazevich didn’t see any playing time last year as a redshirt freshman for UT, which went 7-5 and 5-3 in the MidAmerican Conference, but he’s optimistic heading into the 2014 season. He chuckled when he was asked how often people ask him if he’s going to see the field this season. “When I’m home,” Blazevich said, “I’ll bet I get asked that question by three or four people a week if I see people I know. Everyone asks me that question. I have the same answer every single time. I’m working towards (playing) and it’s a lot harder than people think. I’m making big strides,

where I can see myself being on the field.” Blazevich, a finance major who has gained 20 pounds since his playing days at Stritch, has a 3.4 GPA but isn’t taking any summer courses at UT. Instead, he’s getting in some hours as a detailer at a local car dealership. He said he and his teammates worked out five times a week for three weeks this spring/summer before an off week this past week. Another three weeks of conditioning begins next week and ends around Aug. 4. The Rockets open the season Aug. 30 against New Hampshire at the Glass Bowl. Blazevich’s position coach, John Heacock, is also the Rockets’ first-year defensive coordinator. Blazevich is listed No. 3 on the depth chart at safety on a defense that returns one starting safety, both linebackers and all of its cornerbacks. “We’re just losing a defensive end and one safety (from last year),” Blazevich said. “We have a new defensive coordinator and I feel like the team’s more defensive minded this year. It is a similar game plan to last year.” Blazevich said Heacock has been building up his confidence since joining the program as a first-year assistant. “I have to work my way up,” Blazevich

said. “He says since he’s been here, I’ve made that progression where I could possibly play if there’s an injury. He says I could be fluid with the defense and be fine.” Blazevich said he played three quarters in the Rockets’ spring game in April and garnered “six or seven tackles.” “I felt pretty comfortable out there,” he said. “The speed doesn’t overwhelm me anymore. After two years, it’s normal. I’m used to it. In my mind, I’m really going to be one or two (on the depth chart) this year. I feel I have a chance of playing, just because of the way I’ve progressed this past year and I feel I’m good for those roles.” If he doesn’t see time on defense, Blazevich said he will be more than happy to earn a role on the Rockets’ special teams units. He hasn’t played special teams since high school. “It’s just really detailed (in college),” Blazevich said. “In high school you just run straight. In college everyone has a specific role. My role this year would be as a contain player. I would be the guy who would be going down the field and laying back with the kicker, laying the edge. I think that would be a really good role for me.” Blazevich is the son of Mike and Stephanie Blazevich.
