By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley is reviewing why sirens were not sounded by the time a tornado tore through the city on Nov. 18, causing property damage. “This was a very unusual storm traveling about 75 mph,” Beazley said at a council meeting on Nov. 25. “We had about six minutes from the time the National Weather Service sounded the alarm, and it was on us.” The tornado was one of three that struck the area. The first twister started in Perrysburg at about 5:35 p.m., cut a 12 mile path into Oregon, where it ended at about 5:55 p.m. The width of the EF2 tornado was 150-200 yards and had an estimated maximum wind of between 120-125 mph. Clifford Smith, of Starr Avenue, said at the council meeting that there should have been enough time for the Emergency Management Agency to set off the sirens in Oregon. “We were in our living room, and the television stations were saying it’s heading to Toledo, and it’s heading for Oregon. We had five minutes to go in Oregon. If we hadn’t seen that on the television, we wouldn’t have been in the basement,” said Smith. “We lost trees, our neighbor lost siding on his house. We were close to Wynn Road. It could have moved over a half mile, and it could have been a disaster. We hear the sirens the first Friday of the month. Why don’t we hear them when it’s necessary.” “That’s something we are discussing with the Emergency Management Agency,” said Beazley. “I think that storm was passed before they got that done. I don’t think there’s a good excuse for it.” “We could have been notified 15 to 20 minutes ahead of time,” said Smith. “We should have heard it.” “We agree,” said Beazley. He also said an automated phone system to warn all residents of a tornado takes about 20 minutes.

Traffic cameras

Court favors city in records case By Larry Limpf News Editor The Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling in favor of the City of Northwood in a public records case involving photos generated by traffic cameras. Edward Verhovec had appealed a decision by the Wood County Common Pleas Court in Dec. 2012 that granted the city’s motion request for summary judgment. Verhovec had been hired as an investigator by Paul Cushion, an attorney, to submit requests to the city for all images from the six or so years the city had the camera program, whether the images resulted in enforcement actions or not. The city claimed it complied with Verhovec’s request but on June 30, 2011 he filed with the common pleas court for a writ of mandamus to compel the city to provide the images. At issue was the June 7, 2012 deposition of Thomas Cairl, the city police chief, Verhovec was dissatisfied with the chief’s

testimony and preparation and in August Verhovec filed multiple motions to re-open the deposition/discovery process. The common pleas court, in a two-sentence order, granted summary judgment in favor of the city. Verhovec’s appeal contended the order denied him a “meaningful” day in court and his due process right to prepare an opposition to summary judgment by the city’s selection of an “unknowledgeable” designee (Cairl) and the refusal to produce documents. The appeals court ruled Verhovec missed the deadline to challenge Cairl’s responses in the discovery hearing. “Appellant could have certainly filed a motion to compel or a motion for continuance of discovery prior to the discovery deadline if he felt responses were inadequate or insufficient. Instead, appellant opted to file his discovery motions after the discovery deadline had passed,” the ruling says. Also, after reviewing the chief’s deposition, the appeals court wrote it wasn’t convinced he was “unprepared.”

Verhovec’s agreement with the attorney Cushion called for him to also make similar public records requests at several other municipalities. In return, Verhovec would receive $4,000 each time he successfully prosecuted a request. State law requires public records subject to a request to be prepared and made available for inspection to anyone at “all reasonable times during regular business hours,” the appeals court ruling says, and an improper disposition of the records can result in a claim for civil forfeiture. The law allows someone “aggrieved” by improper distribution to seek injunctive relief or a civil action to recover a forfeiture of $1,000 for each violation and attorney fees. The appeals court ruled Verhovec didn’t meet the criteria for forfeiture. “Appellant (Verhovec) admitted ….he had no interest in the content of the images and was simply interested in whether they existed or not,” the ruling says. “Further… appellant concedes that his only reason for interest in the records was to satisfy his con-

If we hadn’t seen that on the television, we wouldn’t have been in the basement.

Continued from front page “That’s why we ended up with a delay on that. We do have a very fast text message system that goes out instantly. Not as many seniors, especially, use text messages,” said Beazley. “We met with the Emergency Management Agency to make sure these calls get though in a safe way that protects and gives you adequate warning,” he said. Usually, the calls are made with time to spare, causing some to not take the warnings seriously, said Beazley. “When a storm enters Lucas County, maybe in Providence Township or Waterville, tornado sirens will be sounding off. People get calls here and think there’s plenty of time. People are upset because it’s still sunny and nice here and everyone thinks it’s an overreaction. This storm was the opposite. We had just a few minutes from the time the warnings sounded because of what was going on in Wood County and [the tornado] was through Oregon by the time all the calls could get through. The text messages go out instantly. If you can, we urge you to sign up for it. If you’re not a text message user, that won’t help you.” Beazley also gave an update on the storm damage in the city. “Nobody was injured, though there was a lot of damage to property and it shook a lot of people up in a serious way,” he said. “I want to thank our police and fire first responders and our Streets Department. We just felt people got out there and did a good job taking care of the situation right away. They were out and doing their jobs.” As of 8 p.m. on Nov. 18, Toledo Edison reported approximately 1,850 customers in Lucas County without power. In Oregon, power was out for 89 customers compared to 1,494 in Toledo, 108 in Sylvania, 104 in Sylvania Township, 47 in Monclova Township, and 16 in Waterville Township. Toledo Edison had additional crews from its sister companies of Cleveland Electric Illuminating and Ohio Edison to assist in the restoration of power. Toledo Edison estimated it would have power restored to all customers in Lucas County by Nov. 19. The Lucas County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) conducted a preliminary damage assessment in an area roughly bound by Coy Road to the West,

The assessment showed: • Damage to the roof and siding of one of the city’s municipal garages located at 5330 Seaman Road; • Twenty-three single family residential structures were impacted by the tornado: One was destroyed completely (Total loss; structure compromised; not repairable); seven major (Substantial structural damage to walls, roof, etc.), two minor (One wall damaged; section of roof missing or damaged; repairable); and 13 affected (Some shingle, siding, and window damage; repairable). Three businesses were impacted by the storm, including major damage to Sundance Kid Drive In Theater, minor damage to the medical offices of Dr. Kumar, and one affected to Powell Vision. St. Michaels Byzantine Catholic Church was also affected. Considerable property damage, such as torn off roofs, missing siding, a house shifting off a foundation, windows blown out, holes in siding caused by debris,

was reported in the 500 and 600 blocks of Lallendorf Road, 3000 and 4000 blocks of Navarre Avenue, 600 block of Anmarie Court, 5000 block of Giverny Road, two residences on Wynn Road, the 5000 block of Seaman Road, the 400 block of Sky Way Drive, and a residence on Lawai Road. Apparently, most if not all impacted structures have insurance, according to Beazley. Minor amounts of damage from the storm system consisted of down power lines, debris and power loss. The American Red Cross established a regional shelter for individuals and families displaced by the tornado at 7 p.m. on Nov. 18 at Cedar Creek Church Perrysburg Campus, in Lime City Road in Perrysburg. The Red Cross was expected to operate the shelter until all power was restored to the area. Seaman Road between Wynn and Stadium Road remained closed as thru Monday due to debris and downed power lines.

The city didn’t renew its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., of Arizona, which operated the automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras at two intersections. The city received a share of the revenue from traffic citations issued as a result of the cameras. The issue of whether or not to renew the contract divided city council. Supporters of the cameras said they were a deterrent to speeding and running red lights, and that revenue from the fines funded many safety improvement projects in the city. Others came to view the cameras as little more than revenue generators for the city.

Oregon steps closer to using geothermal energy By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon City Council on Monday approved special assessments over a 15 year period to fund geothermal energy in the municipal office complex on Seaman Road that will reduce costs. In the last few years, the city has been exploring options for increasing the energy efficiency of the municipal complex. The buildings tend to have significantly higher energy costs than similarly sized facilities because of the age of the HVAC infrastructure and the way the buildings were assembled into one complex over time, according to Administrator Mike Beazley. The city has worked extensively with the Port Authority’s Better Buildings Program to develop a plan to increase energy efficiency and lower long-term operating costs. “We took the first steps toward achieving these objectives in 2012 when we passed a resolution that helped establish the Toledo and Oregon Advance Energy Corporation in anticipation of this program,” said Beazley. Oregon, Toledo and the Port Authority partnered to create an Energy Special Improvement District or Advance Energy Improvement Corporation to govern the district. The Energy Special Improvement District allows the city, school district, or local businesses to invest in energy efficiency and cost lowering improvements while paying for those improvements over a period of years through a special assessment on their property taxes, said Beazley. “It allows us to - instead of having a significant capital outlay - pay for energy efficiency improvements over time,” said Beazley. “That’s actually something that’s available now to all Oregon businesses as well. It’s something they can do in similar partnership with the Port Authority. There’s been dozens of businesses across the county that have it already, and there’s a couple of Oregon businesses that are already looking at it.” The funding for the initial investment for these programs comes from the Lucas County Port Authority Bond Fund. Oregon’s obligation will be to make annual payments over the next 15 years through the property tax bill. “We can achieve energy efficient upgrade objectives without it having to compete with out streets program or anything else. So we feel good about it from that perspective. It’s a good positive step. We’re using one of the new tools that’s available to local governments in Ohio, and Oregon was one of the first governments to help set up one of these energy special improvement districts. After the first of the year, we’ll be seeking proposals from engineering firms to design and put in a system. We’re inter-

ested in working with one of our industrial partners – Oregon Clean Energy Project – is interested in being involved in a project as well, perhaps with some grant opportunities. This saves money for the taxpayers over time. It becomes a great program for the taxpayers after 15 years when all the capital costs are gone,” said Beazley. “Rather than creating additional debt, the expense is carried as an operating cost that is funded through energy savings and savings from capital investments no longer necessary because of the new improvements,” he said. “After careful examination of our options, we have determined that the best long term value for our taxpayers will be the installation of a geothermal system for our complex. Modern geothermal systems can take advantage of the space we have for borings in the grassy area in the front of our complex and will eliminate any future bills for natural gas while also reducing our electric usage permanently,” said Beazley. Geothermal energy uses a deep well boring that goes 300-600 feet into the earth. “It’s a closed loop system, and uses the constant temperature of the ground below a certain surface to perform a heat exchange

function. The constant temperature is used for both heating and cooling,” explained Beazley. “There will be no natural gas bills in the future. That will be gone. We will replace that with energy from the earth, and continue to use electricity. Much of our electric load is driven by electric demand for cooling in the summer. That low profile will be flattened out over a 12 month period and will lower our electric costs over time as well.” Ohio State University is using geothermal energy for dorms, he noted. The project is expected to consist of the installation of an 80 ton capacity induction beam distributed ground source heat pump system; building controls; other miscellaneous energy efficiency measures. The estimated energy savings for the city is 62 percent. The project is estimated to cost $2.3 million. “In addition to the geothermal system, we intend to also look at using these funds to help switch to LED lighting and for more energy efficient roofing in our complex,” said Beazley. “The average annual assessment payment for the city will be approximately $158,000, but this initiative begins paying dividends in lower costs.”

2014 dog City to remove clothing bins on Woodville registrations By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

Some clothing donation/collection boxes on commercial properties, especially along Woodville Road, will be removed in Northwood, according to City Administrator Bob Anderson, because they are becoming an eyesore. “I’ve had a number of complaints about the proliferation of clothing collection boxes,� Anderson said at a Nov. 7 council meeting. “I’ve looked at it, and decided to direct the zoning department to send out notices to the owners of the properties indicating these boxes are non-permissible accessory structures, especially in our Central Business District. We’re going to start taking them out and storing them.� The Press obtained a copy of one of the certified letters sent Oct. 31 by Kimberly Vaculik, Northwood’s planning, zoning & economic development coordinator, to Millennium Property & Holding LLC, of Romulus, Michigan. It states that the collection box at 4433 Woodville Rd (former AP gas station) is a non-permissible accessory structure zoning violation. “Due to a complaint made to my office, I made an inspection of your property at 4433 Woodville Rd. Upon inspection, I noticed that you have several accessory structures (clothing collection boxes) on your property. This is not permitted by the Central Business District zoning code,� states the letter. “An accessory use is permitted when it is clearly, customarily and incidentally subordinate to the principal, permitted use of a parcel. This is clearly not the case with `clothing collection boxes’ within the Central Business District. Therefore, you must remove any and all collection boxes currently located on your property within 15 days from the date of this notice. Failure to comply may result in further action, including, but not limited to the removal of the boxes by the city.� “We have a right to remedy the problem if the owner doesn’t respond to the letter or the city cannot identify the owner,� said Anderson. A letter was also sent to the owner of the Woodville Mall to remove a collection box located there, said Anderson. “The owner promised to get it out of there,� he said. Most of the boxes belong to Planet Aid, a non-profit group that started in the Boston area in 1997 collecting and recycling used clothing and shoes. A message to the organization was not returned to The Press for comment. Its website states that the project “protects the environment and supports sustainable development in impoverished communities around the world.� “The property owners are the ones

who are allowing that use on their property,â€? said Anderson. “I’m going to pick them up and bring them over here. If they want them, they can come over and get them. I’m not trying to hurt them – we can end up with all the collection boxes up and down the street. They can come and get them, but they cannot put them back on their properties.â€? Some cities that have restricted or banned the boxes charge removal fees, but Anderson said Northwood will not, for now. “I’m going to get the most egregious ones first. I’m hoping this will keep them from doing this in Northwood. I hope I don’t have to do an ordinance. Rossford, I understand, has an ordinance prepared that will be dealing with clothing collection boxes. I’m hoping to do it in Northwood with the existing building code,â€? said Anderson. Patrick Kearney, operations manager of Planet Aid, said he “recognizes that there is a need in most cities to regulate the placement, advertising and service of all collection bins.â€? “The answer is not banning the collection boxes completely‌the answer is regulation,â€? he said. “We are more than happy to work with local communities on their recycling efforts.â€? He noted that Cleveland was recently facing similar issues and passed an ordinance regulating all recycling bins within the city limits. “Cleveland should be applauded and recognized for setting the example for all cities facing similar challenges,â€? said Kearney. “The ordinance basically requires

all collection bins in their city to have a permit and you are able to obtain a permit through an application process and submitting a fee. The ordinance limits the number of bins on a property, requires information that holds people accountable for the service and appearance of the bins. Ultimately, Cleveland was facing a problem and worked together to figure out a way to continue providing a service to the citizens, keep the city clean, reduce waste, recycle more, create more jobs and give back to those in need.�

Also at the meeting, council: • Approved the appointment of Louis Fahrbach to fill the unexpired term of Councilman Dave Gallaher. The term expires at the end of the year. Councilman Randy Kozina nominated Fahrbach because he was the top vote getter in the Nov. 7 election for city council. Fahrbach will then begin his own term on council at the first of the year. • Unanimously voted against a recommendation by the recreation board to increase softball and baseball fees. • Heard Anderson say he is putting together a policy restricting city employees’ use of social media. “A couple of instances have come up,â€? he said. I’d like to see a policy by the first of the year.â€? • Heard that the new Wales Road is now open to traffic. “They’re out there with straw and grass. Signs are going up,â€? said Anderson. The city plans to change the names of new access or stub roads and cul de sacs with names that are more acceptable to local residents who live there.

Mall owners say city ignored their demolition plan An attorney for the owners of the Woodville Mall claims a court ordered demolition plan was submitted to the Northwood by the August deadline, but city officials ignored it. Adam Burke, attorney for the mall owners, said the plan had actually been filed several days before the deadline. “This is a land grab for the city,” Burke said in a prepared statement. “The owners cannot complete the demolition on the property without a city permit. And the city has blocked us at every turn.” The city, he said, has demanded the owners post a $1.7 million bond, which was not part of the court order. “Several industry experts have found the bond to be wrong and unattainable,” stated Burke. On January 17, the city filed a complaint against the owners of the mall, Ohio Plaza Shopping Center LLC and Woodville Mall Realty Management LLC, in the Wood County Court of Common Pleas for nuisance abatement, and removal of the building.

After a hearing on Aug. 8, Wood County Court of Common Please Judge Reeve Kelsey ruled that the owners must raze the building by May 2, 2014, and set up a schedule for the owners to follow in preparation of the demolition. First on the list was the construction of a fence around the property’s perimeter to be maintained until the abatement is completed. The owners complied by the Sept. 2 deadline. But the owners failed to meet a September 30 deadline, as part of the ruling, to submit abatement plans to the city engineer, including a plan for the safe removal of asbestos, Northwood Administrator Bob Anderson told The Press in October. Burke claims that Anderson and Law Director Brian Ballenger ignored an amended plan that was submitted in response to city concerns.

“The court order includes a lien intended to force owners to complete the demolition on time. Instead, the lien has motivated the city to block the demolition,” states Burke. Anderson told The Press on Thursday that the demolition plan submitted by the owners did not meet standards required by the court. “It’s five sentences, mostly just saying `We’re going to tear down the mall.’ It’s literally five sentences. It didn’t address anything at all,” said Anderson. About a week ago, the city received the amended plan, which was forwarded to the city engineer, he added. “We’re not ignoring them. There’s a lot of asbestos involved. It’s a complicated deal. They missed the deadline of September 30. But we still want the owners to tear down the mall,” he said. “We don’t want to have anything to do with that

mall.” The owners are required to obtain a permit and the bond because it’s required by city ordinance. “They have to get a permit. In order to get a permit for demolition, they have to get a bond. They still have to follow the law,” said Anderson. The amount of the bond was determined by the city engineer’s cost estimate of the demolition and removal of asbestos, he said. Mall owners have filed a motion with the Wood County Court of Common Pleas to force the city to permit the demolition to go forward, according to Burke. “We want the city to follow the court order and let us do our job,” he said. “We are ready, willing and able to do the demolition now. The city just needs to get out of the way.” Anderson said he is unaware of the court motion. “I don’t know if he has filed papers or not. I haven’t seen anything. But if he feels it’s unfair and he has a good case, God Bless him. “Let the court decide. That’s the proper place to do it and we’ll abide by the ruling,” he said.

Electric bill amendment popular with state consumer groups By Larry Limpf News Editor A diverse group of agencies and organizations has backed an amendment to a bill pending in the Ohio Senate, contending its amendment is a better compromise to Senate Bill 58, which would change the state’s electric utility law passed in 2008 that promotes alternative energy sources. The group says its compromise will better protect Ohio manufacturers, businesses and residential users from higher electricity prices while continuing to provide the benefits of energy efficiency to all consumers.

SB 58 is working its way through the Senate Public Utilities Committee and has had several hearings. Bruce Weston, Ohio Consumer’s Counsel, said the compromise amendment removes changes in the bill that would increase electric rates, including a 33 percent tax utilities would be allowed to collect from consumers realized through energy efficiency programs. He said it also removes provisions that weaken efficiency standards such as allowing utilities to count upgrades to old power plants toward energy efficiency benchmarks. The amendment does retain an opt-out program that will allow large industrial consumers to be exempted from

If all you want for Christmas is your two front teeth We can help!

the program if they’ve already adopted energy efficiency practices. Weston testified before the utilities committee on Oct. 9 He also decried the bill’s effect on taxes. “Consumers would be required to pay for the utilities’ taxes on their profit from the percentage payment,” he said. “The utilities would take an additional $20 million from customers for every $100 million in efficiency savings. The 33 percent and the tax effect mean that customers forgo more than half of the energy efficiency benefits by paying them as profits to the utility.” Eric Burkland, president of the Ohio

Manufacturers Association, said the compromise “…strikes the right balance by helping the largest energy users while maintaining the existing energy efficiency that is helping Ohio manufacturers lower costs and improve their competitiveness.” A study commissioned by the OMA concluded the bill could erase $2.5 billion in projected savings realized by energy efficiency measures from 2014 through 2020. Other members of the coalition opposed to SB 58 are Ohio Partners for Affordable Energy, Ohio Environmental Council, Ohio Advanced Energy Economy, Ohio Hospital Association, Environmental Defense Fund, and Mom’s Clean Air Force.

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

If you could thank one person this Thanksgiving, who would it be and what would you say?

Do you plan to be a seasonal worker over the holidays? Yes No

Jaime Bartok Oregon "My mother. I would thank her for being there for me and for helping me out with my daughter. She's always been there for me whenever I needed her."

Harold Landis Northwood "I'd thank the Lord for all the goodness he's given me."

Buy local, give local To the editor: This time of year evokes the tradition of spreading holiday goodwill and cheer to all. As everyone begins holiday shopping and event planning, I encourage you to shop for gifts and supplies within your own community by supporting the diversity and quality of our state’s locally made and grown products. When you buy local, you are supporting Ohio businesses and farmers while keeping your hard-earned dollars in the community where you live. Every dollar spent on Ohio products reinvests in your local economy and allows local businesses to grow and hire more local residents. Buying locally not only ensures that your hometown economy remains strong, but that downtown shopping districts and Main Streets stay vibrant and unique. In turn, these vendors help shoppers find thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts for their family and friends. There are many specialty retailers who focus on Ohio-made or Ohio-grown products and gifts. If you are in an area with a limited selection, large retailers carry many of these items as well. From fresh food, to wine, baked goods, soaps and lotions, you can probably find Ohio products in every aisle of your favorite grocery store. Programs like the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s “Ohio Proud” ( program are designed to alert consumers to products that are made, grown or processed in Ohio. Looking for Ohio Proud and other locally made products is a great way to tackle your holiday shopping list while giving back something to your local community.

Foundation) promised her dying sister Susan G. Komen that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. Since 1982, the organization has been known as a powerhouse in fundraising for breast cancer. It’s supposed ultimate mission is to find a cure. According to Komen, the foundation brings in an annual income of $420 million. IRS form 990 for 2011 shows Nancy Brinker (CEO) made an annual salary of $684,717. Her salary comes from donations from people who believe they are saving the lives of breast cancer patients, when in reality, only 15 percent of all funds go towards breast cancer research. According to Reuters Insight, the organization’s 2011 financial statement reports that 43 percent of donations were spent on education, 18 percent on fund-raising and administration, 15 percent on research awards and grants, 12 percent on screening and 5 percent on treatment, while various other items accounted for the rest. Komen portrays “great strides” in cancer research and survival rates. The current annual death rate from breast cancer in the United States alone is approximately 41,000 people, primarily women. Worldwide, nearly 460,000 people will die of breast cancer. “Great strides” is a major exaggeration, especially when this rate has remained static since the mid-1980s – the time when Susan G. Komen started. These statistics degrade the morals of the Komen foundation. After all, Brinker had promised her dying sister she would do everything in her power to end cancer. After billions of dollars have been raised since the start of Komen, the fact that survival rates remain unchanged is alarming, and completely unacceptable. If the organization was truly dedicated to its mission (finding a cure), there would be far more funds directed to research, instead of Brinker’s salary and “awareness” events. These events have trivialized breast cancer

into celebrations of fluffy pink pom-poms and ribbons. They have even gone as far as saying early detection is the cure, when in fact, according to Dr. Iman Mohammed of the University of Toledo Medical Center, 30 percent of people diagnosed with early stage breast cancer will end up with metastatic breast cancer, a stage of cancer where it spreads to other areas of the body such as the lungs, brain and bones. Ninety seven percent of these people will die. This number has also remained unchanged. Currently, it is estimated there are 155,000 people living with and fighting metastatic breast cancer. The solution to the unchanged survival ratings is obvious. In order to make an impact, Susan G. Komen needs to direct almost all funds to research. People who donate to cancer-focused organizations need to be more aware of how their funds are being used. Just because Komen has managed to portray breast cancer as a feathery, pink celebration of sisterhood and not a disease best fought with scientific understanding, does not mean all charities are in the same boat. For example, the Breast Cancer Research Fund donates 90 cents of every dollar to supporting breast cancer research. It was founded by Estee Lauder and funds 186 scientists worldwide and has raised over $350 million for breast cancer. The National Breast Cancer Coalition is a lobbying organization founded in 1991. They set a deadline of Jan. 1, 2020 to end the disease. According to their website, they promote research into the causes of cancer and best possible treatment. While Susan G. Komen has raised $1.9 million over the course of its 30 years existence, the National Breast Cancer Coalition convinced congress to award 2.1 billion to breast cancer research. There are many other organizations also which donate more than 85 percent

69% No 31% Yes

of the funds directly into research such as Metavivor, Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, Stand Up to Cancer and many others. The more people who understand where their donations are directed to, the more organizations like Komen will be pressured to redirect a much larger portion of funds to research. Consequently, there will be improvements in survival. Amelia Bockey Walbridge

Entice small businesses To the editor: In the Nov. 5, election, five people ran to fill four vacancies on Northwood City Council. One of the candidates in his promotional material stated that growth in all areas, residential and business-industry has been explosive for the city. What a joke. Have these council people been living under a rock? Our town is almost a ghost town. We would like to see the areas this person is referring to. We have a Meijer store, but no nice department store to buy clothes, etc. Woodville Mall, except for Sears, is closed. Great Eastern Shopping Center is almost closed. We lost The Andersons, Tire Man, Hostess, Rite Aid, Aldi’s and Pizza Hut, to name a few. The news reported sometime back that Northwood did not want small businesses. We are not keeping larger stores, so why can’t we see if we can get some new growth from small business? Ethan and Joanna Remley Northwood

Lighten up. Get rid of the mental clutter, clear your mind Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden As this cycle repeats itself, the load you carry gets heavier. The result is reduced levels of patience, diminished coping ability, higher stress levels, and more frustration. As your mind gets cluttered with the mundane, your capacity to deal effectively with major issues becomes substantially diminished. This affects your judgment as well as how you interact with others. When you feel overwhelmed, you make poorer decisions and become a more difficult person to deal with. Worry clutters your mind faster than most other things. Worry is like being in a rocking chair; it’s a lot of activity that doesn’t get you anywhere. You worry about the past, lamenting what you should have, would have, or could have done. The past teaches two important lessons: what didn’t

“ “

During a prolonged driving rainstorm, there is a real danger of flooding as water clearly builds up faster than it can drain. On the other hand, a light drizzle seems harmless. However, given enough time, the same amount of rain will fall as during a downpour. If there is no place for it to drain, even a light rain will flood. Every day there are issues requiring your attention. Although some problems may be significant, most are either minor annoyances or relatively insignificant. The examples are endless. You can’t find something, you’re upset by an offhanded comment, you’re worrying about something from the past, you are worrying about the future, you forgot something, or someone didn’t return your phone call. There’s no doubt you can come up with your own extensive list. Just like with a light rain with no drainage, your mind eventually becomes flooded with insignificant stuff. Since the buildup is gradual, there’s no sense of alarm. Yet, issue after issue, the mental clutter grows deeper. With each new addition to your clutter collection, your baseline of normal is raised to accommodate the expanding buildup.

Can you just let it go? work along with what successful behavior should be repeated. Learn from your past, then move forward. You also waste time worrying about the future. Instead, use your energy preparing for the future by taking appropriate action today. Do something about situations you have influence over while letting go of any circumstances you have no control over. The best approach for dealing with mental clutter is not allowing it to build up in the first place. When faced with an issue, here are some questions to ask. Is it really important? Does it matter in the long run? Are there more important things to focus on? Is any action required on your part? Can you just let it go? Keeping things in perspective enables you to release mental clutter. Focusing on all you have to be thankful for keeps your attitude positive. Maintain an attitude of

gratitude. Start each day by going through a mental checklist of all the blessings in your life. A well engrained attitude of gratitude causes you to realize that most problems are not worth all the energy spent on them. There is no need for you to allow people or situations to clutter your mind. Clutter attracts clutter. As your mind fills, it’s easier to get caught up accumulating even more. You have to stop the buildup process before it is possible to start freeing yourself. Change your outlook. Don’t get stressed out by new potential clutter. Rather, consider each annoying situation as an opportunity to practice letting it go. A shift in your approach will make a world of difference. You already know that hanging onto clutter doesn’t work. So learn from experience as you move forward. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book.

Forged from turmoil

Economic development partnership celebrates 20th year Page Two

by John Szozda

...we are able to get things at the speed of business.

The City of Oregon was in disarray 20 years ago. The police chief sued city council alleging a member made false and defamatory comments against him. The councilman accused the Democrats of directing the former law director to conduct a witch hunt. Council voted to take the mayor to court to force an investigation of the police chief. The Democratic Party split in thirds, some stayed loyal, some become independents and some formed the Maumee Bay Democrats. Amidst this turmoil, something happened that no one could predict, because it had never happened before in a municipal election in the state of Ohio, Independent James Haley, a former Democrat, won a write-in election for mayor. He beat the endorsed Democrat. All this political in-fighting played out in the front pages of this newspaper and in the Toledo media. Dump in the city’s contentious relationship with its hazardous waste landfill and the city’s image was less than desirable. While the power struggle played out, frustrated business and civic leaders, as well as some government officials, wanted to know who was leading the effort to bring jobs here and grow the community’s tax base. A consortium of 30 to 40 of them joined together to form a privatepublic partnership to promote economic development. Next week, that partnership, the Oregon Economic Development Foundation, celebrates its 20th anniversary (See below). The effort overcame the skepticism that Oregon would never reach its potential because of a fractious government. In that first year 63 businesses signed on donating $43,800. That was matched with $40,000 of public money. The big players joined: BP Oil, Sun Refining & Marketing, RudolphLibbe, St. Charles, etc, as well as banks, realtors and retail business. Today, the foundation has 102 members.

So what has it done in 20 years? Well, that’s not easy to answer. Economic development is a nebulous field in which numerous entities can take credit for jobs and investment. Mike Beazley, Oregon city administrator and a career government employee, said tongue in cheek, “If you look at the job announcements or the scores economic development agencies give themselves, it seems we’ve created millions of jobs and never lost one. By the math, everyone in Ohio should be employed with two jobs.” While credit is hard to apportion, Beazley said the public-private partnership is better than a system in which a city department or a city employee is responsible for economic development. He cited four reasons. First, costs are shared between businesses and the taxpayers; second, because community leaders interact they generate more ideas to overcome obstacles to development; third there is more flexibility and discretion; and fourth, most city administrators who are part-time economic development directors have more pressing

issues to deal with like fire and police protection. Lindsay Myers, current executive director, adds another advantage. “I have worked in both (private and public). In working as a city employee there is a certain level of bureaucracy…There are certain steps Lindsay W. Myers you have to take to put things before council…The great thing about a public private partnership is that we are able to get things done at the speed of business.” Both Myers and Beazley said the relationship between city officials and the foundation is excellent. While you would expect them to say that, this much is clear — business is good. The $800 million Clean Energy natural gas plant is on track to break ground this spring; the BP husky project to refine crude from the Alberta tar sands is on track and Spartan Logistics last year completed its eighth warehouse project since 1999. Tenants represent approximately 10 firms employing more than 600 employees in 716,000 square-feet of space. Companies include Fresenius Medical Care, Autoneum and Caraustar Industrial Products. In addition, Independent Mike Seferian, a former Democrat, and Democratic challenger Tom Susor ran a clean, issue-oriented mayoral race. The foundation can’t take credit for all of this. In fact, city council and in particular councilwoman Sandy Bihn, deserve credit for pushing to get the long-awaited Millard Avenue overpass done. The overpass allows trucks to bypass trains that used to block the city’s industrial section. Without the overpass, Ed Harmon has

stated Spartan Logistics would never have commissioned warehouse one. Oregon has assets that are the envy of other communities: low-cost abundant water, more than 700 acres of industriallyzoned land, industrial usage electricity, a Foreign Trade Zone, rail access from three railroads, a deep water port, roads that qualify for Michigan loads and a skilled labor force. The quality of life assets are just as impressive: two excellent school systems, one of the lowest income tax rates of a city in Northwest Ohio, Pearson Park, the Lake Erie shoreline and nearby Maumee Bay State Park, marinas for charter boat fishing and wetlands that attracted some 60,000 bird watchers last spring. These assets demand the attention of a full-time economic development organization. Congratulations to the foundation on its 20th anniversary.

Hollywood Casino committee collects donations For two weeks, Hollywood Casino Toledo’s “Hollywood Cares” committee collected donations of peanut butter and jelly from its team members to benefit Food for Thought, a local food bank. On Nov. 15, Sam Melden, Food for Thought’s executive director accepted the donation, which included enough peanut butter and jelly to cover Food for Thought’s needs for 17 weeks and feed almost 6,000 people. “I think the cool story here is how the Hollywood team members rallied around such a creative idea, and in such a big way,” Melden said. “Such a large donation will help Food for Thought continue its work throughout our region.” The Hollywood Cares committee at Hollywood Casino Toledo includes team members from many departments that are willing to dedicate their time to community outreach initiatives.

Entertainment Published first week of month.

Pianist Jason Farnham will get you in the mood for Christmas Pianist Jason Farnham – a popular favorite at the Pemberville Opera House, will return for a concert entitled “Get in the Mood for Christmas,” Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The performance is part of the Live! in the House concert series. Raised in Northeast Ohio and living in California with his wife Lisa, Farnham has been hailed as the “International Entertainer of Contemporary Piano Music.” He began playing the piano at the age of 4 and studied with numerous teachers and was classically trained. Later, in high school and his college years at Ohio University, he began crafting his own style of music. A diverse composer, producer and songwriter, Farnham’s song “Rock Star,” from the album “Barriers,” was included in two feature films, “Bobby Khan’s Ticket to Hollywood” (2011) and “American High School” (2009), as well a number of commercials. “Morning Coffee,” from the same album, was featured on the Filter Magazine Channel on all American Airlines flights for the month of January 2009. Farnham also composed music for the Dr. Oz Show. He is also known for his world peace song and its YouTube video, “Love Around the World.” His music has also been licensed and used in numerous public service announcements, promos and election campaigns. Visit to keep up with the most recent news. Fans have affectionately dubbed Farnham as “Schroeder” from Peanuts because of his toy piano, his witty Victor

Back by popular demand, Jason Farnham – Ohio-born pianist and composer – will present his “Get in the Mood for Christmas,” Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Pemberville Opera House. Borge-style piano comedy antics and the clever way he interacts with the audience. His show repertoire includes contemporary romantic piano, jazz, bossa nova, blues, stride piano, and classical with a modern twist. The newest addition to his piano show is Fur Elise with a techno-rock-dance beat – “Fur Crying Out Loud Elise, Let’s Dance.”

Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca has now become “Rondo Alla Techno.” Can he play the piano while lying upside down Amadeus-style? Of course. And always included in the lineup are a handful of Farnham’s signature original piano pieces, like his 2008 original instrumental hit, “Lisa’s Song” (When). During the Christmas season, audi-

ences enjoy Farnham’s innovative arrangements like “Calyps-O Christmas Tree,” “We Wish you A Merry Christmas Charlie Brown Style,” and “I Got the Jingle Bells Blues.” And what holiday show is complete without an audience sing-a-long at the end? Tickets are $10 and are available at Beeker’s General Store or by calling Carol at 419-287-4848.

Trains to create holiday magic The Hayes Presidential Center’s Hayes Train Special model train display marks its 20th year of bringing holiday joy and enchantment when it opens Friday, Nov. 29. Eight model trains – all styles that have significance to 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes and his family – travel throughout a 12 by 24 feet course that includes mountains, tunnels, countryside and villages. The three-tiered display rises to the ceiling, providing a visual wonderland that also includes 19thcentury trolleys and a decorated Christmas tree. Visitors are given control of aspects of the trains’ movements and some of the display’s animated features via a series of buttons. The exhibit, which continues through Jan. 5, 2014, is made possible through funding from title sponsors Croghan Colonial Bank and the Gordon W. Knight Family. Adding to the holiday-theme is an ex-

hibit telling the story of Santa Claus. ‘Santa through the 19th Century” chronicles how early depictions of Santa evolved into the jolly, ho-ho-ho, elf we all know and love today. A series of exhibit panels also details how Santa’s purpose also has changed. Admission to the Hayes Train Special and “Santa through the 19th Century” is included in the Hayes Museum ticket price of $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors age 60 and older and $3 for children ages 6-12. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. TuesdaysSaturdays and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. (Closed Mondays, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. The Museum will close at 3 p.m. Dec. 24.) A finale to exhibition of the Hayes Train Special, a Model Train Clinic will be held from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014. Admission to the clinic is $2 per person. In the event of bad weather, the clinic will be canceled.

Toledo Museum of Art

Japanese print exhibit ending Time is running short to see “Fresh Impressions: Early Modern Japanese Prints” at the Toledo Museum of Art. The TMA collection of exquisite woodblock prints, on view together for the first time since 1930, is considered to be among the finest and most comprehensive collections of shin hanga (new prints) at any American museum. When the exhibition ends on New Year’s Day, the prints will go back into protective storage containers so their brilliant colors do not fade and their beauty is protected for future generations to enjoy. TMA helped introduce modern Japanese prints to American audiences in 1930 and 1936 with two exhibitions of works by contemporary Japanese artists who had revived the traditional art of the woodblock print for a new era. Chief Curator Carolyn Putney, whose specialty is Asian art, has revisited and reinterpreted the 1930 landmark show, adding a few new elements, such as kimono, Kabuki Theater costumes and traditional Japanese swords and armor, however the stars of the exhibition remain the 343 prints by 10 leading artists of the shin hanga movement.

ing traditional Japanese woodblock technique with an interest in Western aesthetics and a vivid, modern color. The era has been described as a period of Renaissance in Japanese woodblock printmaking. All but a handful of the prints are owned by the museum. Most of them were donated in 1939 by local print collector Hubert D. Bennett, who at the time was president of Toledo Scale and a member of the Museum’s board of directors. The prints encompass a variety of subject matter, including traditional landscapes, seascapes, rivers and lakes, beautiful women (bijinga), actors (yakusha-e), the natural world and wildlife, cities, towns and temples, as well as Western-inspired still life and genre scenes. The exhibition is made possible by members of the Toledo Museum of Art and supported in part by Bridgestone APM Company and by Douglas and Elaine Barr. It is also is supported in part by the Ohio Arts Council’s sustainable grant program funded in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Admission to the exhibition and to the Museum is free. The companion catalog can be purchased through the Museum Store and online at

Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, filled with stirring music and song. The tour of “War Horse” is directed by Bijan Sheibani and is presented in association with Handspring Puppet Company. At the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage.

The juvenile male arrived at the zoo through the National Marine Fisheries Service after being caught wild off the East Coast and transferred to a “stranding center.” Although many of the animals at stranding centers are rehabilitated and subsequently released, the seal was not able to be released. He was habituated to humans and had been taking fish off fishing lines, which could have put him at risk as he matured. Since his arrival, the zoo’s animal care, enrichment and veterinary teams have helped him settle in to his new home, where he is making steady progress and seems curious about people and his surroundings.

Four years, since we saw you last Four years, since you sadly passed We miss you now, as we grieved you then To see your face, and your lovely grin Joce and Brit send you word of the next Generation. Meet Enzo and Zola Rose Your Great Grandchildren.

If I could visit Heaven, if only for a day, maybe for a moment the pain would go away. I’d put my arms around you and whisper words so true, that living life without you is the hardest thing I do. No matter how I spend my days, no matter what I do, no morning dawns or evening falls, that I don’t think of you.

We love you. Ed and family
