Great Lakes museum set to open next spring By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer When the National Museum of the Great Lakes opens next spring, it could be the catalyst needed for the Marina District’s 127 acre development. The $12.8 million museum, currently under renovation at its Maumee River front location next to the Toledo Maritime Center and the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship, was brought to Toledo by the Great Lakes Historical Society. “There are very few museums in the world that can actually legitimately claim to be an economic development asset of massive significance,” said historical society executive director Christopher H. Gillcrist. “I think we’re one small piece of the puzzle that can help this area redevelop and that’s what we hope to do.” Paul LaMarre III, director of the Monroe (Mich.) port, added, “You can see it taking shape as a true destination. You see

I think we’re one small piece of the puzzle that can help this area redevelop and that’s what we hope to do.

Officials from the James “Wes” Hancock Senior Center in Oregon rejected the possibility of getting $250,000 from the Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio, Inc., (AOoA) to expand operations. Instead, they opted to get the center’s own levy on the ballot on Tuesday. Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley met with Billie Johnson, president and CEO of the AOoA earlier this year to discuss the possibility of getting funding from the agency for expanded operations at the center. Oregon was planning to spend $750,000 to expand the senior facility on Bayshore Road, but would not be providing funds for enhanced services Johnson told Beazley she would ask the Lucas County Citizens Levy Review Committee, whose members are appointed by the Lucas County Commissioners, to earmark $250,000 for operations at the senior center if voters renewed the Lucas County Senior Services levy next year. The committee reviews the AOoA’s proposed use of levy funding. “I have to take my whole budget to a levy review committee,” Johnson explained to The Press. “There’s a lot of hoops you have to jump through, but we were willing to do that because if the city was going to come up with close to $1 million for the senior center, the least we could do was use some of the levy resources that the citizens have passed to help operate the facility.” Her proposal, though, was shot down by Bob Marquette, president of the senior center, and Bob Benton, a director of the board, according to Beazley. Instead, they asked Oregon City Council to put a 0.5mill, five year operating levy on the Nov. 5 ballot, which council approved. If passed, the levy would bring in $207,000 in annual revenue for the center.

the Jet Express parked outside (during an open house Tuesday) — this is the type of development that is needed to draw a ferry service like the Jet Express, or others, to the location. “It brings together multiple preservation assets, or attractions that will create something greater that will be something sustainable. So many preservation historical agencies struggle and struggle in today’s

fast-paced technological society to create partnerships and create a larger attraction, which is extremely valuable,” LaMarre continued. A feasibility study commissioned by the historical society and Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority found that between 41,000 and 60,000 visitors will visit the museum annually. At a combined admission and per visitor store purchase figure of $12.50 per person, 41,000 visitors would generate about $500,000 annually for its operations. Total annual revenue, including membership, endowment and charitable giving, and grants are estimated at $1.225 million with expenses estimated at $1.075. That includes labor costs of $475,000, administrative costs of $100,000, plus advertising, programming, ship maintenance, occupancy, and cost of goods sold.

Cardinal Stritch

Sisters provide Lifetime of dedication The foundation of Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School may have been built in 1961, but the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania formed the cornerstone of the educational foundation the school has today. The same energy and passion the sisters displayed for decades at the school was apparent again when Sister Ann Carmen stole the show at the 2013 Red and Black Affair. As Sr. Ann Carmen stood atop of her chair and waved to the crowd, the audience erupted into a thunder of applause to honor the Sisters’ 51 years of service to the school. Over the years, 73 sisters lived their vocation both in the classroom and in the lives of their students. When the doors of Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School were opened in 1961, the impact of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania was immediately felt. The sisters were asked by Bishop Rehring to help lead the formation of the new high school and operate it as well. In the early days, the sisters were the teachers, administrators and leaders of the school, but they also called the school building their home. Sisters lived inside the school in the early 1960s. It was quickly apparent they needed a more comfortable living environment, so an on-campus convent was built to house them. “We loved and love them (students),” said Sr. Ann Carmen. “It wasn’t a job. It was us being a part of their lives. These students are our legacy.” And the students loved the sisters just as much. Jerry Brown, a ’77 graduate, remembers the sisters pushing him toward academic success in high school, which translated into success in college and business as well. “As a stubborn and all-knowing teenage student who often looked no further ahead in life than what was happening on the weekend, I was tenderly nudged, gently prodded, and often firmly pushed to participate in classes, clubs, or events that, at the time, I saw no use for,” said Brown. “But the Sisters were looking much further

Genoa police sent seven warning letters recently to property owners who haven’t cleaned up junk vehicles despite village efforts to work with them. The letters are the newest part of the junk vehicle crackdown undertaken by Police Chief Bob Bratton and his department. At the direction of village council, Bratton has been working on the junk vehicle/trash issue for months. The better part of the project has involved one-on-one talks with property owners. The goal, he said, is to get the sites cleaned up without

They weren’t concerned with me just exceeding in high school; they were more concerned with me exceeding in life.” In the decades to follow, as the number of sisters began to dwindle, they eventually left the convent for a smaller, off-campus living quarters. In the summer of 2010, the convent at St. Kateri Catholic Schools was converted into classroom space, housing the music and art departments and was renamed the Sister Rose Angela Education Center.

going through legal channels, he said. “I’ve been working on this for a while. I’ve had some success working with the people,” the chief said. Some others, not so much. The seven properties targeted in this first round of letters are located across the village. The junk vehicles and trash have accumulated along the alleys and throughout side yards for an undetermined amount of time. The letters state that property owners have until Nov. 12 to deal with the problem. That is, the chief said, they need to get the places cleaned up or contact us with a plan that shows they are really attempting

while the sisters may no longer be roaming the halls of the high school on a daily basis, the impact they had on the schools will be everlasting. But the impact the schools had on the sisters is almost just as powerful. “We bring just as much energy to the mission,” said Sr. Ann Carmen. “We are always asking ourselves, ‘How can we be present? How can we have an impact for the good? Is there something I can do to help Stritch?’ We ask ourselves these questions almost daily.” (Story courtesy of St. Kateri Catholic Schools.

to do something about the mess. If these warnings go unanswered, police officers must issue citations. Property owners will then head to Ottawa County Municipal Court to respond to the misdemeanor charges. “If the court orders them to remove the trash, they will have so long to do that,” Bratton said. Further resistance will force village officials to take matters into their own hands. The lands will be cleaned up by the village and the expenses will be attached to the property owners’ tax assessments, Bratton explained.

Great Lakes Continued from front page active experiences to tell the story of the Great Lakes. The experience is to be both educational and entertaining. “This is a long term dream to create a national museum of the Great Lakes,” Gillcrist said. “We can raise people’s understanding and appreciation of the important history of the Great Lakes. Having the space and the location to do it makes all the difference in the world.” It is hoped that the vacationing public and school children will find experiences in the museum that “enrich their lives and elevate their appreciation for the important role” Great Lakes history has played in the North American continent’s development, a pamphlet states. As part of its agreement, the historical society will manage the Schoonmaker museum ship, which was relocated from International Park in October 2012. Estimated cost to maintain the vessel is $50,000 annually. LeMarre, the former executive director of the Schoonmaker and formerly in charge of Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority’s maritime affairs, calls the museum “the largest historic preservation project in Great Lakes history.” He remains part of the historical society’s vessel committee, which will have oversight of the Schoonmaker. “This will be the Smithsonian of Great Lakes maritime culture,” LeMarre said. “It’s only fitting that it is in the port of Toledo, which is commonly referred to as the capital of the lower lakes, anyways. But, this project has come a long way and has overcome many hurdles to bring together many assets of maritime history and culture to present the total package to future visitors. “From exploration and settlement, to the 1,000-foot lake freighters on the lakes today, it tells the story of a people that have been part of that industry for 100-plus years,” continued LaMarre. Complementing businesses The historical society over the past

John Daugs, an exhibit builder, works on an ice panel for one of the museum’s exhibits. (Press photo by Stephanie Szozda) three years has raised 77 percent of the funds needed for moving the museum and renovating the building from public sources. If you count the value of the Toledo Maritime Center into the equation, the project is funded at 82 percent and Gillcrist says the retrofit of the building is about 85 percent complete and about five percent of the exhibits are in place. The rest of the exhibits should be installed by December 10. The reasons for moving it from Vermilion to Toledo — cost effectiveness to a newly constructed building for museum exhibits, superior access to Interstate 280 and I-75, willingness on the part of the City of Toledo to relocate and restore the Schoonmaker, availability of additional land for development, and presence in a historic

port setting. “Toledo has a long history in the shipping business and to have this museum here is really great for us,” said Mary Dalby, owner of Harbor Light Cruise Lines, which has operated Sandpiper cruises for 20 years. “It looks like it’s going to be a really fabulous facility,” Dalby continued. “Hopefully, it will bring people in from all over the country if not from all over the world. There are other Great Lakes museums around, but this one could be the best. And, having the Schoonmaker as a part of it is a real plus for it.” Dalby knows from experience how tourism businesses can complement each other financially.

“I’ll tell you the truth — Cousino’s Navy Bistro, when he (former owner Tom Cousino) built that restaurant, people came down downtown and didn’t die. They were sure they were going to, but they went there. They saw the Sandpiper go by, and people would see the Navy Bistro, and they would say, ‘What is that? A Navy supply store?’ And, I’d say ‘No, it’s a restaurant.’ We fed off each other and I think that it helped both of us become a success. “This facility, we’ll go by, and people will say, ‘What’s that?’ And, I’ll say, ‘That’s a museum,’ and at the museum they’ll say, ‘That’s the Sandpiper,’ and I think that will be good.”

Mahjong, Wii bowling, exercise fitness, line dancing, Bunco, body sculpting, commodities, belly dancing, and rides to and from medical appointments and shopping. “Members also want computer classes and access to getting a GED,” he said. “We would like to bring in people to learn about Obama Care. We would like to have a computer lab, so we would need computers. If members have a question about pharmaceutical services, maybe they would be able to speak to a pharmacist, or even speak to a lawyer.” There are also fewer dollars, according to Marquette, left to pay the center’s fulltime executive director, Paula Benton, as well as a part-time secretary/assistant, a part-time maintenance employee, and two part-time drivers. One of the part-time drivers is Paula’s husband, Bob Benton. Marquette said Paula Benton has received a 3 percent raise in salary in the eight years she’s been executive director. Marquette would not disclose Paula’s salary, nor would Paula when asked by a reporter from The Press, though she is paid with public funds. She refused to comment further for this story. The Press obtained a copy of the 990 non-profit tax return filed by the center with the IRS in 2011, the most recent report available. It notes Paula’s annual compensation is $39,462. The tax return also notes other salaries, compensation, and employee benefits totaled $89,751, though there was no breakdown in the allocation per employee. The center’s total revenue was $128,772 and expenses $137,756 in 2011, according to the tax return. The center had cash, savings and investments of $80,505 at the end of the year. Some of the revenue from the senior levy would go toward salary raises for Paula and the other employees at the center, said Marquette. It would also go toward hiring a fulltime administrative assistant. Other plans for the revenue include buying a new van to replace an older van that has over 200,000 miles on it, said Marquette.







Misc. Operating $31,000.00










Underperformance According to figures released by the AOoA, funding for the senior center has indeed been reduced. In 2009 and 2010, the AOoA allocated $72,243.88 to the senior center. In 2011, funding increased to $74,240.42. In 2012 and 2013, the amount dropped to $63,870.56. But the AOoA said the center received fewer dollars partly due to its “underperformance,” in providing contracted services to seniors in 2010 and 2011. The center

The total amount of funds the Area Office on Aging allocated to the James “Wes” Hancock Senior Center was reduced mostly due to underperformance of the center. 2009 – $72,243.88 2010 – $72,243.88 2011 – $74,240.42 2012 – $63,870.56 2013 – $63,870.56 The Lucas County Senior Services Levy brought in the following amount of revenue in the last five years: 2009 – $3,880,000.00 2010 – $3,717,000.00 2011 – $3,575.000.00 2012 – $3,623,539.18 2013 – $3,013,240.48

simply did not use all the funding allocated by the AOoA during those years. “In 2010, the senior center did not use about 5 percent of its award or $3,914.64,” Phil Walton, board chairman of the AOoA states in an Oct. 5 letter to Marquette. “In 2011, the center did not use about 10 percent of its award, or $7,452.59.” For 2012, the senior center’s award was $2,917.27 less than the amount that was used in 2011, he added. The senior center also gets funds from the city, which also dropped slightly since 2009, according to figures released by Oregon Finance Director Kathy Hufford. The center received $48,500 in 2009 and 2010; and $47,715 in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The reductions are due to savings in utilities. The city has consistently provided $31,000 in each of the last five years to the center for miscellaneous costs. The amount the city budgets for senior center expenses and programs is decided during the budget process, according to Hufford. The city administration recommends an amount that is reviewed during annual budget hearings attended by coun-

The Area Office on Aging is funded at the: · Federal level primarily through the Older Americans Act and the federal share of the funding for the PASSPORT Medicaid-Waiver In-Home Care Program · State level primarily through State share of the funding for the PASSPORT Medicaid-Waiver In-Home Care Program and the Senior Community Services Program (a.k.a. Block Grant) · County level primarily through the Lucas County Senior Services Levy. The Area Office on Aging’s budget since 2009 for the 10 county service area and all its 180 provider organizations: 2009 – $41,166,355.00 2010 – $43,739,321.00 2011 – $45,225,841.00 2012 – $44,241,772.00 Source: The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio, Inc.

cil before it goes to council for approval. The senior center submits invoices to the city with receipts attached requesting reimbursement for expenses. The city also budgets $25,500 annually for senior programs at the YMCA. Marquette acknowledged the center has underperformed, but gave reasons ranging from lower attendance due to poor weather to the closing of the center on election days because it is a polling place. Johnson said other senior centers provide out-of-center services to make up for underperforming in other areas. “They are providing other programs and services that are needed. You have to get creative,” said Johnson. “That’s why we have directors, to come up with those other services and programs that are needed in a community. You can change your budget. You can say, `We’ve closed the center

down, but we need more transportation to get people to the doctor, hospital or to get therapy. So I want to reprogram my supportive dollars to transportation.’ We approve those.” The funding the senior center receives from the AOoA is just a portion of what the agency spends on senior services in Oregon. For example, in 2012, the AOoA spent a total of $309,279.12 on Oregon seniors with revenue from the Lucas County Senior Services levy, block grants and Older Americans Act funding, according to Justin Moor, vice president of planning and program development at AOoA. Johnson said the agency’s budgets have grown, mostly due to Medicaid and Passport programs. “Those services are growing because the older population is becoming more frail and needing home care services versus being able to come to a senior center or to a nutrition site,” she said. 5 year budget On Sept. 26, Karen McConnell, a member of the senior center board, met with the AOoA’s board to discuss the Oregon Senior Services levy and asked for the agency’s support. The AOoA sent a letter to Marquette requesting a five year budget, but there was no response, according to Moor. “We requested a budget detailing how these funds would be spent and, to date, we have not received this information,” said Moor. “The Area Office on Aging doesn’t know whether the amount of the Oregon senior levy funding would be used for administration, operations, services or programs.” Marquette said he would not comment on why he has not responded to the AOoA’s request to submit a five year budget. The AOoA also had other concerns. Among them: The timing of the Oregon levy, one year before voters would consider a renewal of the Lucas County Senior Services levy, according to the minutes of the Sept. 26 AOoA board meeting. If Oregon votes for its own senior levy, would they also renew the county levy, and pay twice for services? “If the Oregon Senior Services levy passes, an Oregon resident would be paying for both the Lucas County Senior Services levy and the Oregon Senior Services levy,” Moor said to The Press. And that could jeopardize funding for seniors throughout the county. “It puts at risk so many other seniors throughout Lucas County,” said Johnson. “They really must think these things out. If you’re going to go for a levy, then you really need to tell people what you’re going to spend it for,” she added, a reference to the senior center not providing a five year budget to the agency. If passed, the Oregon senior levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $17.50 annually.


New CRA designated for economic development By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Northwood City Council at a meeting on Oct. 24 approved the designation of a new Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) to spur economic development. It is situated in the middle of two currently designated CRA’s on the west and east sides of the city, said Administrator Bob Anderson. The issue has been discussed previously at economic development committee meetings. “The reason we’re doing this is for economic development. There’s a bit of activity there going on right now, so if we could do it by emergency and have it adopted, I think it would be appropriate,” Anderson said to council. The CRA’s offer companies 100 percent

tax abatements for commercial and industrial development. Taxes to the school district would not be abated. “The commercial and industrial CRA’s are all negotiable. This is the limit of what we can offer. Each individual deal is negotiable with city council,” said Anderson. Also at the meeting, council considered increasing registration fees for the summer baseball program. “The Rec Board met, and there was a lot of discussion,” said Council President Connie Hughes, who is council liaison to the board. Anderson and Finance Director Ken Yant recommended raising the fees for the summer ball program, she said. The board recommended that the fee be increased from the current $35 per child to $50 per child with an $85 cap per family. The board also recommended a fee increase from $50 to $75 per child for the

travel gold team, said Hughes, who adding that council will have to act soon because registration for baseball is Nov. 17 and 24 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the community room at the municipal complex on Wales Road. The proposed ordinance would also place a $500 cap on what the city pays the gold touring team to enter a tournament and $350 for the regular teams. If the teams want to spend more money to play in more tournaments, they would have to raise the funds privately, said Anderson. “If we can’t pass it tonight, which I know is a lot to absorb all of a sudden, I would appreciate it if maybe we could consider a first reading and possibly work on it in two weeks so we can get the ordinance in place one way or the other,” said Hughes. “If the ordinance gets passed, then

the fliers can be made and sent out to the schools and the fees can be put on the website.” She added that the Rec Board’s budget has been decreased. “I’d like to recommend a first reading on this,” said Councilman Dean Edwards. “I’d like to have a discussion at the committee of the whole on this topic.” Council gave the ordinance a first reading, with two more readings required at future meetings before it becomes law. It will also be discussed further at the next finance committee meeting. Anderson said after the meeting that he and Yant recommended the fee increase “to defray some of the costs that the city incurs. “We thought it would be best to spread it around,” he said.

Senior levy supporters see Sylvania as their ‘dream center’ By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer Bob Marquette, president of the James “Wes” Hancock Senior Center in Oregon, and senior center advocates have a vision of where they would like to be someday, and passage of a 0.5-mill, five year operating levy on the Nov. 5 ballot is just one step in getting there. A pamphlet from Oregon Citizens Supporting Senior Services (OCSSS), which is promoting the levy, lists 10 needed positions, but Marquette stresses that passage of the levy, Issue 7 on the ballot, does not mean there would be 10 new employees. If passed, the levy would fund only the expansion of services, said Marquette, who also chairs the OCSSS. The “wish list” includes hiring a full-

time program coordinator, part-time event coordinator, part-time volunteer coordinator, part-time computer services position, part-time data entry position, a part-time rental hostess, and making the part-time maintenance worker full-time. “They are not even needed positions. That was from a hypothetical question of ‘What if you could have everything that you wanted to have.’ Sure, we have a wish list,” Marquette said. “We have a wish list for a new building. We’d like to have all these different positions where we could serve the seniors better. The Sylvania senior center has everything on Marquette’s wish list. “They have a half-million dollar levy, plus what they get from the city, the township, and everybody else. They are dealing with millions of dollars and we are not even close to that,” he said.

Marquette emphasized that the levy would not go toward building a new senior center. Revenue from the proposed levy would be used to fund services only and not a new or expanded building, according to Marquette. “The levy is absolutely needed to fund the continuance and expansion of needed services that are vital to our senior residents. These services make it possible for many of our seniors to stay active and independent in our city. Without the services offered by the Oregon senior center, many of these residents would be forced to go to assisted living housing and not enjoy the freedom that they have with the available services,” he said. Expanding services Marquette said the levy revenue would enhance and expand the type and number of

services offered by the center. Some of these services could include, but are not be limited to, confidential consultation with social workers, legal outreach consultants, educational assistance programs for formal GED/ post GED classes, personal interest classes in advanced education, assistance with new medical coverage plans (such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, nicknamed “Obama Care”), Medicare/Medicaid, new retiree’s assistance for pension, social security coverage, and medical coverage. Transportation is provided to and from the center for medical appointments, errands, shopping, and banking. “The passing of the senior levy will maintain financial stability for services rendered to the senior population,” Marquette said. “The life expectancy of our senior population continues to lengthen and so do their needs.”

Romany gypsy Joszef Angyal arrived in Toledo for one reason — to learn a lesson on how America deals with discrimination against minority populations. The 25-year-old Angyal got what he was looking for. Angyal arrived here from Budapest, Hungary through the Great Lakes Consortium for International Training — a collaborative effort of Bowling Green State University, Lourdes University, the University of Toledo, and WSOS Community Action Commission established in 1999. Angyal was hosted by Hungarian Club Vice President Stave Bartha at his Oregon home and worked alongside economic development specialist Robert Krompak from the East Toledo-based community development corporation, NeighborWorks. Angyal’s work in Hungary at the Ministry of Human Resources, Department of Social Inclusion, correlates directly to what he was doing here. He is a community builder in Hungary trying to assist a minority population, so he worked in the offices of community builders while here. “His specific thing that he does is helping to integrate his own people, who are the Romany gypsies, into mainstream society,” Krompak said. “They are very discriminated in Hungary. Their experience is very similar to African-Americans or Hispanics, or even Arab-Americans here in Toledo in that there are a lot of people who judge them unfairly and stereotype the whole population, and even attribute things to the population that aren’t true.” What did Angyal find during his four weeks here? The answer might be surprise some. “I think here the minorities here have more opportunity to work and to study because in Hungary, the gypsy minority are discriminated against, I think, so they don’t have opportunities because they don’t have a job,” Angyal said. “I think here finding occupation is easier and I was happy when I saw black people, for example, in public office. In Hungary, you can’t if you are a gypsy, but here the black people and other minorities have a job like the majority, so it’s not the same. I think if I go home, we can be more motivated to do what I see here in the U.S. as a good example.” While here, Angyal visited with the local head of the NAACP, went to an AfricanAmerican museum in Detroit, visited the African-American Legacy Project in Toledo, and then had similar experiences visiting with people and cultural centers representing the Hispanic, Jewish, and Islamic communities. “We went to several public meetings in Toledo, and he was really surprised to see that our mayor and our police chief are both Black-Americans and our fire chief is an Hispanic-American, and that everywhere he turned, including our own agency, people in management are often minority people,” Krompak said. “He said that would be something

At left, Steve Bartha,vice president of the Hungarian Club of Toledo, with Jozsef Angyal of Budapest, Hungary. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean) that he would be quite surprised to see in Hungary. Given the fact that we have a lower minority than majority population, that’s pretty unusual, and he was impressed that the majority of people in Toledo, being white, would vote for Mayor (Mike) Bell. “I said, ‘Yeah, that’s true and that’s happened once before — we had Mayor (Jack) Ford. Of course, we have President Obama, which is the classic example, but I don’t want you to get the misimpression that everything is A-OK.’ “I think he left us with the overall impression that America is probably the one place in the world where people are working hard at diversity and we’re trying to make the melting pot a reality, but there is still work to do.” Krompak, whose family is ethnic Hungarian but from the majority Magyar population, admits that he was unaware of the experience of the Romany people. He learned there are new emerging minorities in Eastern Europe, including immigrants from the Middle East and Russia, and he may see that first hand when the GLC program offers him a reciprocating trip. “I also found it interesting that the government has a Ministry of Inclusion,” Krompak said. “I think that is an interesting concept where the government is working hard to making sure everyone is included, that everyone has an equal opportunity. It sounds a little bit like Civil Rights here in the United States, where we have offices of affirmative action and that kind of thing.” Speaking Hungarian In Hungary, Angyal was a student at the Romaversitas Foundation, a training

At the same time, he graduated in public administration as well. “Joszef is very unusual in that he comes from a rural village in Hungary of around 2,000 people and in his village it’s exceptional when someone graduates from secondary school,” Krompak said. “He has a brother and a sister and neither one of them have graduated from high school. Joszef is the only high school graduate in his family and he’s the only person in his village that has ever attended and graduated from a university. “The experience of the Romany people there is that many of them are isolated in these small villages because the majority population rejects them. Of course, more and more of them are showing up because of job opportunities in places like Budapest, and so he’s trying to work with them to ramp up the skills that they need in order to succeed in Hungary’s economy.” Angyal, who is fluent in English and also speaks German, is making his first trip to the United States. His stay in Toledo is over, and Wednesday he flew to Washington D.C. for conferences. On Nov. 9, Angyal will head back to Hungary. His last night here he had dinner with Bartha and Lucas County Administrator and former elected public official Peter Ujvagi, who speaks Hungarian. “I was surprised some people speak Hungarian, so that was very good and it was a good feeling to see the Hungarian flag and the Christian church. It’s neat you can go far from Hungary and there are Hungarians,” Angyal said.

“Ladies Night Out”

When I tried to open a business on Navarre Ave. a few years ago, I had trouble with the Mayor and her City Administrator. They put every hurdle they could in our way. They were definitely not for small business. When Mike Seferian became Mayor, he said to “go open your business!” I still had some problems to solve, but they worked with me not against me. I have found Mike Seferian to be one of the most honest people I have ever met, in his auto repair shop he owns, and as Oregon’s Mayor. Anyone that has their car fixed by Mike knows they will be saving a bundle compared to most repair businesses. Mike is not always showing up to get his picture taken for everything that goes on in Oregon, but still he does his best work for the City, then quietly goes back to his own shop, fixing cars. If you have not met this man, take the time and meet him. His bringing Mike Beazley on as administrator was also a great pick. If you are voting in this coming election, don’t just vote for a familiar name, MEET these people. Mike will drop whatever he is doing to help anyone. Once you meet him, I know you will vote to keep Mike Seferian in office.

Someone who has really done a lot for the city is George Dalling,” he said of the city’s first mayor elected in 1962 and who served until 1979. “I’m going to leave you all with that and whatever you guys decide will be fine. I really think George Dalling did a lot for the city. There’s a lot of people who really have no idea who he is. So it would be a nice way of remembering him and keeping his name around and hopefully, in 50 years, someone will say, “Who is that park named after and why?’” Gallaher said last month that he decided not to run for re-election so he can spend more time with his family.

On behalf of the city and the residents of Northwood, thank you for your time. It was well served here. You will be missed. I’m sure you won’t be a stranger.” Council President Connie Hughes agreed. “We might not always agree, but still we’re friends. In the last 20 years, we’ve had the same goal in mind: The City of Northwood,” said Hughes.

At one time or another, we all have been in situations that require us to muster up courage and face our fears. Simply stated, courage is rising above our fears and taking charge of our lives during difficult times. Firemen who must enter a burning building to save someone, or police officers who confront known criminals are examples of people who possess a special type of bravery and courage. And although most of us will never have to enter a burning building or confront known criminals, just doing and saying what is right in our daily lives also often

The Lord wants us to be courageous and to have peace in our hearts as we face our daily responsibilities.

Introducing the cheapest way to a good job and better life Page Two

by John Szozda

I saw my father throw his newspaper against the French doors in anger about what government was doing.

No skill is more important to success in life than reading. None. After centuries of learning and after all the changes in education brought about by technology and new teaching methods, nothing will put your child on the road to success like the love of reading. The obvious advantage is in classroom performance. Students who don’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, according to the study Double Jeopardy: How Third Grade Reading Skills and Poverty Influence High School Graduation by Donald Hernandez, a professor at City University of New York. The study was cited by Ohio Governor John Kasich when he unveiled The Third Grade Guarantee, a state program to identify and provide services for kids who lag in reading skills. Under the program, kids who cannot read at grade level cannot advance to fourth grade, although they will be able to take fourth-grade classes in other subjects. The guarantee calls for testing and intervention starting in kindergarten. While it’s too early to assess the impact of Gov. Kasich’s initiative, the need is dire. According to The Nation’s Report Card, only 34 percent of Ohio fourth graders read at grade level. If your child is one of the 34 percent, he or she has a much better chance of landing a good job leading to a higher quality of life. Many of those jobs are not jobs in which you are strapped to a machine do-

ing mindless work, or where your work is routinely supervised. Today, more people work at home, or on the road. This trend coupled with the purge of middle managers due to the Big Recession means there is less supervision. The worker who will get ahead is one who shows initiative and keeps abreast of technological and educational advancements in his or her field on his or her own. Those who develop logical thinking skills, can read quickly and grasp abstract concepts will have an edge. Fur-

thermore, you are more likely to switch jobs or careers than your parents, thus learning how to learn on your own to prepare for those changes is an indispensible asset. Success in the workplace typically translates into increased revenue and adequate revenue is important in building a stable family. Fighting over family finances is one of the leading causes of divorce. There are two ways to improve your financial situation at home: earn more or spend less. My love of reading comes from my French mother, who read to learn the language and help seven kids with homework, and a father who read magazines and manuals to build the house and repair the cars and appliances. These are real-world examples of how reading can help someone better their family situation. I too have used books, manuals and the Internet to trouble-shoot a washing machine, a car, a garage door opener and to calculate the payback on home refinancing and adding insulation to the house. I have also been an avid reader of newspapers since, as a young teen, I saw my father throw his newspaper against the French doors in anger about what government was doing. Consider what you learned by reading the last two issues of The Press: You now know about 450 construction jobs coming to Oregon; you now know how to access a levy estimator to calculate how much the senior services levy in Oregon will cost you before you vote; you now know what your neighbors think about the bond issue to build new schools in Northwood; and you now know the latest in the saga about the demolition of the Woodville

Mall. You have also read inspiring stories such as the one about the Cardinal Stritch grad who started his career mopping floors at Burger King and is now the CEO of a company with 223 restaurants. And, you now know how man is saving from extinction the endangered Whooping Crane by teaching it how to fly south by following an ultralight. In each of the last two issues of The Press you would have been exposed to more than 450 ads promoting products and services that help you save money and improve your quality of life. You miss out on all of this if you do not have a love of reading. Today, with the Internet, you now have the world’s knowledge at your fingertips. You can discover new worlds and new ways of thinking. You can use it to help form your beliefs and your code of honor. You can gain insight into how your mind works, how to read people, how to communicate and how to parent. Reading can also be fun and relaxing. However, it is work. And, this is where you, as a parent, come in; studies have shown that kids tend not to read if their parents don’t read. Reading is the least expensive, most effective skill you can help your child develop. Don’t wait to see how effective the new state program will be to assure your child will have an edge when it comes to competing for employment. Read and read to them.

You know that someday you think about? It’s today Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden

As you grew older, you began to realize your original outlook was faulty.

Procrastination sabotages your future. When you were a kid, time appeared to be limitless. There was no risk in putting things off until later. You had all the time in the world. As you grew older, you began to realize your original outlook was faulty. Time definitely is finite. Although your understanding changed, the habit of putting things off remained an ingrained habit. You continue to utilize the strategy of using someday as a goal for accomplishments. The flaw in this approach is that there is no deadline or sense of urgency so there’s no real incentive to get started . An impending deadline is a great motivator. It can even create a sense of emergency. You rush to get things done because you fear the consequences of not doing so. If there is no deadline, chances are nothing will ever be accomplished. You rarely put things off you are excited about. It’s those tasks you don’t want to do, don’t like doing, are too difficult, or you just don’t know where to start, that are postponed to some unidentifiable point in the future. Fear of failure is another excuse used when putting things off. The regrets people have later in life are all of those things they never did, not those things that may not have worked out as planned. Whatever your goals may be, nothing will happen until you make it happen. The best way to accomplish this is by redefining “someday” to mean “today.” Your goals for today are much more likely to be accomplished than your aspirations for someday. Even a task that cannot be completed today can be started today. Taking action, even one small step, no matter how small,

is essential to breaking through the wall of procrastination. Forward movement is amazingly powerful. It gets you off the sidelines and on the road to success. One effective action strategy is working on a task for just 15 minutes today. Don’t worry about how much or how little you will accomplish. You can devote 15 minutes to anything you have been putting off. Once you get started, you must keep your momentum going. Develop a timeline with specific dates and measurable accomplishments. This process establishes concrete deadlines to maintain your motivation. Next, you need to identify and remove any roadblocks that have gotten in your way or will inhibit your progress. There are no obstacles which cannot be overcome. Every

problem has a solution. Instead of making excuses, find the solutions. Another anchor that prevents forward movement is worry. Worry is a waste of time and energy. You fret over what has happened, what is happening, or what may happen. Regardless of how intently you worry, nothing positive will be accomplished. Replace worry with action. Take whatever steps are necessary to bring about your desired outcome. Do you have goals? What are they? Today is the time to identify your objectives. Don’t put it off any longer. If you haven’t given this much thought, start now. Identify your likes, dislikes, strengths, and weak-

nesses. Where would you like to be? What would you like to do? Today is your someday. Life is not a practice run. Start working on those issues you have been putting off. Until you become proactive, nothing happens. You don’t want to be in a position where you look back years from now and lament all those things you didn’t do because you put them off. Today is tomorrow’s yesterday. Start things today so you won’t regret putting them off tomorrow. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book.

Indebted to teachers To the editor: I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the teachers, supporting staff and administrators that have touched my children’s lives. From the secretaries that have been my main source of communication and information, to the lunch ladies that have served my kids, to the janitors that have cleaned my children’s messes, the nurses that have nursed my kids, the bus drivers that have transported my children safely to and from school and extra-curricular events, to the principals that have signed my children’s grade cards and have written words of encouragement, I thank you all. It is the teachers that I want to focus on. I am truly fortunate, grateful, blessed and indebted to my children’s teachers past, present and future. You have one of the most important jobs and are not thanked, paid or appreciated enough. In addition to academic instruction, you are leader, supervisor, mentor, diplomat, psychologist, organizer, nurse, disciplinarian, role model etc. to our kids, our most precious gifts (most days). Some of you spend more time with my children than I do because of the school day, after school activities and my work schedule. People who are unaware need to realize that you put in more than an eighthour day. I understand that papers cannot always be graded during school time because of other responsibilities you do like, morning, lunch and parking lot duty; supervising our kids until the buses arrive at the end of the day or in the morning before school opens; chaperoning a dance; being an advisor to a club; being on a committee; filling in for another teacher last-minute or conducting a concert, performance or competition. The before- and after-school stuff you do is part of the job and like most places there are some slackers. Not all teachers are great, but the majority are. I understand that the things you do outside of school takes away from your personal life too, whether it be your family, hobbies or your rest and relaxation. In some instances you not only put in your time, but money too for supplies and educational materials. To me, your job is of the highest importance. You are helping shape our children’s lives, pick up where we leave off in the morning (since we can’t be with our kids 24/7). I have had the pleasure of knowing some awesome teachers who in turn have helped produce and influenced some awesome kids (society’s future decision-makers, leaders, neighbors, parents, community members and co-workers). I would challenge anyone to walk in your shoes. Not everyone can do what you do. I am forever grateful to all of you for all you have done. You have truly made a difference and have helped make a better family, community and world. Julianna Ruetz Mother of four kids who have been in the Toledo Public, Toledo Catholic and Woodmore School Systems

Broken promises To the editor: The failures and broken promises of Obama Care are becoming abundantly clear to the public yet Joann Schiavone’s letter criticized those who oppose the law. Maybe she should look at the reality of what has happened since the law’s inception and she would see why Congressman Bob Latta is standing with the majority of his constituents and Americans on the issue of Obama Care. The law’s lack of popularity led to an unknown Republican winning the Senate seat of the late liberal Ted Kennedy in a state with an 80 percent Democratic legislature. Democrats in Congress ignored that message and used parliamentary procedures to ram the law through, preventing the new senator from stopping it. In 2010, the law’s passage led to an election cycle gain of 63 Republican House seats and six Senate seats on the promises to do something about Obama Care. In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled the law constitutional and Schiavone considers it a settled matter. I wonder if she would have felt that way in 1896 when the Supreme Court ruled that ‘separate but equal’ was legitimate. Much like that decision, the majority opinion on the court had to create a silly interpretation to deem the law Constitutional. In 2012, voters re-elected Obama. Democrats call it an endorsement of Obama Care despite polling on the policy being vastly different than polling on Obama versus Romney. At the same time, voters elected more Republicans to national office than Democrats. Today, there remain 24 more Republicans than Democrats elected to office in Washington.

In the summer of 2013, President Obama announced delaying the employer mandate on health insurance while staunchly opposing a delay to the individual mandate. Democrats are fine giving big business special treatment while trampling the little guys. In the fall of 2013, Bob Latta and others stand for delaying the individual mandate and are blamed for the government shutdown. Within weeks of the government reopening, many Democrats are coming out in favor of delaying the mandate following the embarrassment of the healthcare website and their re-election bids. Meanwhile, millions are being dropped from their insurance plans despite the president’s promises. I wonder if Schiavone considers these people to be delusional like Bob Latta. Adam Swartz Walbridge

Coincidence? To the editor: Originally, the people in my old neighborhood were of French descent, except for a few Germans. Our neighborhood was called Birmingham because it had so much heavy industry, like Birmingham, England. In 1890, they built the Maumee Malleable on Front Street next to the flour mill. The company brought 100 Hungarian families from Cleveland to work at the plant. As more Hungarians arrived, the French slowly moved out. There were a few Italians, Slovaks and Czechs in the neighborhood; the majority were of Hungarian descent. Most parents, like mine, were foreignborn and came here as children with their parents. The men worked with and socialized with their own kind. English was a second language and many of them did not speak it very well. The women, on the other hand, needed to speak English in their everyday lives and they spoke it very well. If you had walked through my neighborhood before 1940 and heard all the foreign languages spoken, you’d have through you were in Europe. My wife’s grandfather, “the ole Frenchman,” built a house in the 400 block of Craig Street in 1900. My father-in-law grew up in that house. He bragged to me about how he had beat up on a boy who was a year or two older than him. He was 13 at the time. He told about seeing Hungarian weddings that lasted a week with dancing in the street. Then the wife’s grandfather moved the family. A few years later – in 1918 – my parents got married and moved into the upstairs apartment in the house that the ole Frenchman had built. Was that just coincidence? In 1948, my buddy was invited to his girlfriend’s home on Sunday afternoon to play cards and was asked to bring a friend. She lived on Vermont Street. We were two East Siders. We had such a good time, we did it again the following Sunday. He married his girlfriend and I married the young lady that was there with her – the ole Frenchman’s granddaughter. I don’t believe in coincidence. Louis Agoston Toledo

Now is the time To the editor: In response to letters published last week regarding the facility plan for Northwood Local Schools: Northwood Schools began assessing facilities with the State of Ohio in 1990. That original study was revisited in 2000, again in 2008 and updated last in 2013. From that work completed over many years, there is no getting around the need to address our aging community infrastructure. The plan our community is being asked to support was arrived at through a community engagement process in which 61 of our community members took part. Options from doing nothing to constructing new facilities were examined in public meetings at which our community was invited to share their ideas. No plan could completely satisfy all of us, but through the process we were able to arrive at a recommendation that was supported by a substantial majority of those attending the meetings. The information from those meetings is available on our school website. By the end of the process, it became clear the time was now to partner with the state to build new facilities because we need them and our cost only grows over time. One mill of property tax in Northwood generates about $115,000 per year. If a property tax alone was used to pay for

the plan, the levy needed would have been around 9 mills. That would be a large levy, especially for those on fixed incomes. Recognizing this, the community members studying our options recommended a levy split between property tax and income tax. The 0.25 percent earned income tax does not tax investment income, pensions or Social Security and makes this levy less expensive for our senior citizens. The district has also chosen to use funds from recent tax abatement agreements which reduces the cost for all. Greg Clark Northwood Local Schools Superintendent

East Side Pride To the editor: In the study of local history, we at East Toledo Historical Society have noticed that the phrase, “East Toledo, Ohio” appears on many historic documents and advertising. I thought about the reasons it specifies that part of town and several come to mind. The address clarifies what part of town the business is located. It also hints they prefer separation from the rest of the city and we know that thought has existed for a long time. What I feel could be another reason is the pride of a special location within the city. East Side Pride has been around as long as the east side has, and it is still going strong. We are proud of our roots; we have a special bond among each other. It is like glue; it sticks to you for life. Yes, East Toledo is not without its problems, just as other older areas of the city, it is part of urbanization or the outward spread of change. Many of us in the Historical Society have relocated to other areas and some of us still reside in East Toledo, but we still have that common denominator – we were born (or) raised on the East Side. The love of that thought and the memories associated energize that pride. We do not care what others think of that, or of East Toledo. We handle the negative comments easily with a “Consider the Source.” We are not a political group, but we do pay close attention to what is going on, including negative events. Our mission is to preserve and procure the history of this area. We enjoy each other and the reminiscing that takes place at our functions is the result of the love we have for our roots. Ronald J. Mauter President, East Toledo Historical Society

Praise for agency To the editor: We’re writing regarding the article in The Press titled, “Agencies seek millage for continuing services.” Though the section concerning the Wood County levy was technically true, there were a couple of items that could be misleading. Referring to the growth of those needing services, the article stated, “the number of persons needing service is expected to grow.” The fact is, the number of folks needing services has already grown tremendously since the last levy years ago and that number continues to rise. The article also mentions a projected operating fund balance of $7.1 million by the end of 2013. This money is not excess, but will be instrumental in keeping the Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities (WCBDD) in operation until the levy money becomes available later in 2014. Have you ever before had an opportunity to vote for additional funds for an agency that has done such a great job stretching the money they were given to work with 13 years ago? Our family has much more than a passing acquaintance with Wood County social services. Our youngest daughter was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Within the first month after she was born, we were contacted by a nurse who came out to our house and helped us to connect with services needed for Christy. For the next 34 years, they were a very welcome and beneficial part of our lives. They were with us every step of the way until Christy died two years ago. Quality of life was much enhanced because of their involvement. We thank God they were there and enthusiastically support the levy. Ray and Mary Jo Bosch Millbury

On Friday, Oct. 25, DJ Greenhill and family, owners of the Portage Inn were presented the winning banner by members of the Woodmore Varsity Girls Soccer team during the Woodmore vs. Otsego football game. Coach Jason Allen and Coach Rachel Swope would like to thank all who participated in this event. Jill Bench Elmore

Workers deserve thanks To the editor: On Oct. 10 at 4 p.m., I called the Oregon City Water Department and informed the person responding about a broken water valve in my basement. In a short time, an employee was at my residence and determined the valve indeed was broken. Also, the valve near the sidewalk was broken. The employee stated that the next morning, the valve at the sidewalk would be replaced and it was and the department workers were efficient and courteous. I compare this to a very negative response in 2012 from an Oregon city employee. Richard Zunk Oregon

Owls, woodpeckers focus of new Metroparks photo exhibit By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer Visitors can get acquainted with the most important species of owls and woodpeckers in North America at a new exhibit being hosted at the National Center for Nature Photography in Secor Metropark, located at 10001 W. Central Ave., Berkey, six miles west of US 23/I-475. The exhibit, “The Owl & the Woodpecker,” includes photos, information and evocative audio recordings that illustrate how the birds define and enrich the specific habitats on which they depend, and the critical importance of conserving those habitats. The traveling exhibit from the Burke Museum in Seattle is on view Saturdays and Sundays from noon-5 p.m. November through February. Admission is free. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held Saturday, Nov. 2 from 1-3 p.m. At 2 p.m., Nature’s Nursery will present a program featuring live owls. The “Owl & the Woodpecker” is based on a book of the same title by Seattle photographer and author Paul Bannick, known for his intimate wildlife photography, which supports environmental conservation efforts. His work has appeared in Audubon magazine, the National Wildlife Federation Guide to North American Birds, Smithsonian Guide to North American Birds, and in a number of other books, magazines, parks, refuges, and other places in North America and Europe. Exhibit highlights include: • Twenty-five large-format, framed color prints by Bannick; • Text descriptions of each bird, written by the photographer, plus several thematic text panels that highlight the conservation issues affecting different owl and woodpecker habitats across North America; • Audio recordings of the calls and drumming sounds of the birds featured in

quent winner in the Metroparks’ annual photography contest. The other exhibit, “Trees: A Photographic Celebration” by Ohio landscape photographer Ian Adams, features 83 photographs taken through the seasons in Ohio and 13 other states. Dandar, of Curtice, has been photographing the beauty of light for more than 20 years, winning several awards for her evocative photos. As a favorite participant in the Center’s annual Celebrating Nature through Photography Contests, she was invited to exhibit a selection of her favorite images. “I didn’t see it coming,” Dandar said of the invitation to exhibit her photos at the show. “When they contacted me I said, ‘Are you sure?’ Among the photos featured are “Crossing Over,” “Leaving the Herd” and “Burnt Sunrise.” “They’re all symbolic – they mean different things to me,” she said. “I like the moody shots that make you think.” All the photos that will be on display were taken locally. “We have a gem here,” she said. “The Toledo area has a whole lot to offer if you just know where to go. The name of the exhibit exemplifies Dandar’s appreciation of Christ’s hand in creating the beauty around us. “God created everything I photographed,” she said. “It’s beautiful and lovely – we can’t reproduce it. “I take the photos from His point of view – I believe that’s why I’m there to photograph the beauty – it’s a blessing,” she said. “I’m also very blessed to live in a rural area of Jerusalem Township, where I can see the wildlife and the beauty,” she said. “I have deer that take walks through my yard. “That’s what inspires me,” she added.

Owner of Stony Ridge animal refuge hoping for reprieve By Larry Limpf News Editor Ken Hetrick sees few options for his wild animal refuge in Stony Ridge. Hetrick, the owner of Tiger Ridge Exotics – home to a collection of six tigers, three lions, a leopard, a grizzly bear, a timber wolf and a liger; many of them elderly – Hetrick is convinced he can’t afford the costs associated with a new state permit and regulation program. One quote for liability insurance he received is $376 a month, he said, and required changes to the fencing could cost thousands of dollars. “They’re telling owners to do all these things but some of it is not rational,” he said of the Ohio Dangerous Wild Animal Act, which bans unpermitted ownership of certain animals and reptiles by Jan. 1,

2014. The restricted list covers lions, tigers and other “large cats,” bears, elephants, certain monkeys, rhinos, alligators, crocodiles, anacondas and pythons longer than 12 feet, certain vipers and venomous snakes. “Wildlife shelter” permits cost $250 for one to three animals and up to $1,000 for 11 to 15 animals. There is a $125 fee for each animal over the 15 limit. Owners must also obtain liability insurance or a surety bond of $200,000 to $1 million, depending on the number of animals. The application period for permits began Oct. 1. As of last week, no owners have filed for permits, said Erica Hawkins, a department spokesperson. Department personnel have been visiting registered owners to distribute permit information and inspect enclosures, she said. Hetrick is trying to find some reprieve from legislators, hoping the law can be

it’s in a range of something you can do. The rules the state passed; there is no way for me to meet that.” He’s convinced one state regulation, having animals micro-chipped unless otherwise exempted, has resulted in the death of a grizzly bear that succumbed to the tranquilizing drug used to insert the chip. All of the animals at the refuge have been rescued from owners who no longer wanted them, Hetrick said. The Humane Society of the United States intervened in the lawsuit on the side of the state. Karen Minton, Ohio director of the Humane Society, called the regulations “commonsense restrictions on the keeping of dangerous wild animals…” Information about the law is available on the department of agriculture website:

amended so his refuge can be exempted. He’s registered the animals but sees the law as an over-reaction to a tragic incident in Zanesville, Ohio, in October 2011, when an owner released his collection of wild animals shortly before committing suicide. Authorities killed nearly 50 of the animals to protect area residents. The law is being challenged by some owners as well as the Ohio Association of Animal Owners. Late last year the U.S. District Court ruled in favor of the state and the OAAO filed an appeal in May the Sixth District Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. Hetrick said he’s had no problems following regulations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which has inspected the refuge he’s operated as a non-commercial venture funded by himself and donations for more than 30 years. “If they told me to do something I do it,” he said of the federal department. “But

Netsuke collection one of the largest in North America

Survivor Art Show highlights cancer patients’ talents

The Toledo Museum of Art’s collection of more than 500 netsuke—one of two great collections in North America, the other being at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art—is on display in its entirety for the first time. The tiny Japanese treasures now fill a gallery especially appointed for their presentation. The netsuke (pronounced net-skeh) came to the Museum due to the generosity of several donors over the last 100 years, but are largely credited to one avid collector—Richard Silverman. A Toledo native, Silverman’s first foray to the Far East was as a soldier in 1956. He became fascinated with the region’s customs and art, and though he returned to Toledo after his stint in the military, his love for Asia led to an eventual 15-year stay in Tokyo. The art collector adapted to Japan’s famously tight spaces by turning his focus to the tiny, yet meticulously crafted, netsuke. Invented in the 17th century, netsuke worked as a kind of toggle for hanging sagemono, purse-like containers, from the belt of a kimono. Fashionable men collected the small, carved accessories, which depicted everything from landscapes to people. “The finest were like miniature Michelangelos,” Silverman said. “I loved them all, from those made in the early 17th to 18th centuries to contemporary works. I traveled the width and length of Japan to sightsee and find more netsuke.” Silverman amassed a serious collection of netsuke over 40 years, and in the 1980s, he began to donate significant examples to the Toledo Museum of Art. These gifts included more than 200 ceramic netsuke (a relatively rare material for the genre), as well as a selection of 20th-century netsuke made by the Okawa school, a group of carvers first identified by Silverman himself. And just this year, Silverman gave the Museum another group of more than 100 of the miniature sculptures. The Museum’s netsuke collection dates mostly to Japan’s Edo Period (1615–1868). Netsuke were originally an inexpensive commodity, but with the decline of traditional Japanese clothing, the tiny masterpieces rose in value. Today, signed 18thcentury ivory or wood netsuke can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars. For more information, visit

Cancer patients shared their stories and their talents at a Survivor Art Show held Oct. 18 and 20 at The Victory Center in Toledo. Since 1996, The Victory Center has been providing individual and group services to support and empower cancer patients and those closest to them. Services available to cancer patients include oncology massage, Reiki, reflexology, sound therapy and facial massage to address skin changes during treatment. TVC also offers exercise groups, support group meetings, and many other activities. Artwork showcased at the exhibit was created as part of the center’s Healthy Spirit Art Therapy program, as part of the Art and Soul Retreat held at TVC by local artist, Karen O’Brien, or as an individual artistic expression from home. Works showcased ranged from origami and still life, to sculpture and painting. Cancer survivor artists were on hand to share the stories behind their artwork. “Art expression is one of the ways that people cope with the extraordinary changes they have gone through in their lives,” said Penny McCloskey, MEd., program director at TVC. More information can be found at www., on Facebook, or by calling 419-531-7600.

Hayes exhibit tells the story of a true ‘Buckeye’ Rutherford B. Hayes is the only one of Ohio’s eight presidents who was born and died in here in the Buckeye State. Hayes was proud of his Ohio roots and often referred to himself as a “Buckeye.” That term took on added significance when, as governor of Ohio, he played a lead role in creation of the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College – today known as The Ohio State University. The Hayes Presidential Center highlights Hayes’ intense pride in being an Ohioan and his strong links to OSU with its newest exhibit, “Rutherford B. Hayes: Buckeye President,” which opened Oct. 17 and continues through April 13, 2014. The exclusive exhibit is made possible through funding from Diversified Insurance and Auto-Owners Insurance. Hayes was raised in Ohio, received most of his education in the state, married a fellow Buckeye, and reared his family here. His varied careers also were entrenched in Ohio. Hayes was a city solicitor in Cincinnati, served in and commanded the 23rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, was elected to one of Ohio’s U.S. Congressional seats, and was a three-term Ohio governor. Along with his devotion to Ohio, Hayes spent much of his life promoting education for all. He believed the foundation of a strong nation was an educated

It was in his first term as Ohio governor, that Hayes used his political influence to convince the Ohio Senate and House to pass legislation needed to establish a land-grant college. That institution was re-named The Ohio State University in 1878. In 1892, Hayes was selected President of The Ohio State Board of Trustees. The University’s “manual training” building Hayes Hall (opened in 1893) is named in his honor. Today, Hayes Hall is the oldest

building on the OSU campus. Hayes also was a champion of Hampton University (established to educate freed slaves), the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, and the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home (a residential/educational facility for the children of Civil War soldiers). Until the time of his death, he was a key participant in the Lake Mohonk Conferences, which influenced governmental policies on education and shaped attitudes toward Native Americans and African Americans.

Area Church Special Events

Exhibit hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, and New Year’s Day). Admission is $7.50 for adults; $6.50 for seniors age 60 and older and $3 for children 6-12. Children 5 and younger get in free. The Rutherford B.

NOVEMBER 4, 2013

State Rep comes to East Toledo to talk about “Obamacare” State Representative Barbara Sears will come to East Toledo later this month to talk about the Affordable Care Act and Ohio’s plans to administer it. Rep. Sears will speak at the East Toledo Senior Center, 1001 White St., Thurs., Nov. 21 at 12:30 p.m. The talk is sponsored by the East Toledo Club. Rep. Sears, a Republican, has acted against her party’s wishes and backed Governor John Kasich’s attempt to expand Medicaid to coincide with the Affordable Care Act. She introduced legislation to implement Medicaid reforms that will identify ways to lower costs, reduce uncompensated care, and extend coverage to Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens. Rep. Sears in a press release stated the legislation would extend coverage to Ohioans under 138 percent of the federal poverty level and will provide critical health care services to Ohio’s poorest citizens. New enrollees in the Medicaid program would be fully funded by the federal government for the first three years. The bill provides protections for Ohio should the federal assistance percentage decrease below the specified amount after the third year. Additional provisions include encouraging personal responsibility through cost sharing, promoting employment-related services, and ensuring those who abuse narcotics receive proper treatment. “Ohio’s Medicaid system has made substantial improvements over the past few years and this legislation furthers that effort,” she stated. “By providing a ladder up and out of poverty through quality care, we are allowing for citizens to achieve greater self sufficiency and creating a healthier Ohio.” Rep. Sears is currently serving her third term. She represents the 47th House District, which includes parts of Lucas and Fulton counties. For the 130th General Assembly, she was elected by her colleagues to serve as Majority Floor Leader for the Ohio House of Representatives. In addition to her work as a legislator, Rep. Sears is currently senior vice president of employee benefits at Roemer Insurance in Toledo. In 2008, she completed her six-year term on the Swan Creek Retirement Village,

I often sit and think about the one year that has passed by and of the happiness and joy that was shared by you and I. I think of all the laughter, the smiles and all the fun and before I even know it, my tears have once again begun. For, although it brings me comfort to walk down memory lane, it reminds me how, without you, life has never been the same. You are missed so very much! Love, Cody
