Marina District moving forward, again By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer East Toledo residents have heard it all before — a new plan to develop the Marina District is in the works and it’s going to attract new money from hundreds of miles. For decades, requests for proposals have been issued and developers have come and gone. However, those same residents are saying this time it may be for real. Why? Because, residents say, the Metroparks of the Toledo Area are the ones laying the groundwork and the ProMedica health care system is a major player. For once, two local players are involved, and at a public meeting Wednesday, East Toledo residents overwhelmingly approved of moving ahead with the plan, but added a few suggestions of their own. Wednesday night, over 75 guests attended a second open house at the East Toledo Family Center, and what they got was a “Framework Plan” which gives insight into how the Metroparks and other developers will take on the task of turning the entire 127-acre Marina District into a quality piece.

We are very aware that this represents something that actually must get done.

Officials in the Village of Oak Harbor are noting the vital role the police department has in the Ottawa County community as they promote a new 2.87-mill, five-year levy that will be on the November ballot. If passed, the levy would generate about $118,470 annually and its revenues will only be used for the department’s operations, equipment and related needs. In addition to providing 24-hour service for the village, the department also provides 24-hour dispatching services for the Portage Fire District, Mid-County Emergency Medical Service, Rocky Ridge Fire Department and Carroll Township police and fire departments. The police department also answers after-hours emergency calls for the village’s public works and public power departments as well as after-hours emergency calls for the Carroll Water and Sewer District and Carroll Township Maintenance Department. Randall Genzman, village administrator, said the department has been offering other services as well, including hosting of a prescription medication drop-off point for all county residents and functioning as a safe place for transactions conducted through e-commerce. The department also receives fire and burglary alarms for local residents and businesses. Levy revenue may also be used for patrol vehicles, updates to the dispatching system, body cameras, portable radios, Taser equipment, firearms, breath alcohol testing equipment and upgrades to the police station. Genzman said some of the department’s equipment is old and needs to be replaced. The levy would cost the owner of a home valued at $100,000 about $100 a year in property taxes. Genzman said the village has implemented more than $731,000 in spending

MKSK consultant Chris Hermann says the newly developed Framework Plan calls for 70 percent parkland, 20 percent mixed use, and 10 percent cultural use, but adds those figures are not firm. MKSK is a Columbus-based planning firm hired by ProMedica to help develop the city’s downtown master plan. Hermann says one of the highlights of the property is the downtown skyline view available to mixed-use, residential and office development and he says that view should be incorporated into the develop-

ment of the property. “We are very aware that this represents something that actually must get done. There’s been a lot of discussion about what the future of this is going to be. We’ve heard it loud and clear,” Hermann said. “Whatever happens, it has to be something that reflects East Toledo. This is actually a real plan. The Metroparks is excited about doing this. This is an area they want to put a lot of investment in because this is a great opportunity for their program, and we think that development could actually happen on Main Street.” The first step was to get 70 acres of land back into local control, said Hermann. That sale is now complete. ProMedica has purchased the 70 acres from Chinese firm Dashing Pacific Ltd., and the next step is to sell much of that land, which is adjacent to the Maumee River, to the Metroparks of the Toledo Area for development of a park. The plan not only calls for a Metropark along the riverfront, with Riverside Drive as it’s “spine,” it calls for small retail development and restaurants along Main Street, near where the old Sports Arena used to sit, Continued on page 2

Lake schools refinancing By Larry Limpf News Editor With a recent refinancing of bonds issued for the construction of the middle school, the Lake School District has saved more than $1.86 million in interest costs, according to the district administration. The Lake board announced last week the completion of a second bond refinancing that will save an estimated $827,500. The original bonds, sold in 2001, were scheduled to be fully paid off in December 2025, said Jeff Carpenter, district treasurer. However, they were refinanced in 2007 that netted an interest cost savings of $1.03 million. “We’ve now been able to take advantage of this second refinancing, that, when added to the first, provides a savings of $1,861,591 in total interest costs and shorten the life of the obligation by nearly two years,” Carpenter said. Interest rates have fallen since 2001, prompting the decision to refinance: • 2001 original bonds – Sold with interest rates ranges of 3.5-5.3 percent • 2007 refinanced bonds – All sold with 4 percent interest rates • 2016 refinanced bonds – Average interest rate of 1.8 percent Lake school board president Tim Krugh said, “The bond refinancing neither helps, nor hurts, the finances of the school district in any way. All the savings goes back to the taxpayers.” The savings from the most recent refinancing even surpassed estimates Carpenter compiled in March when he projected the district would save about $705,000 in interest charges. By this summer he informed the board the savings would be even higher. This year, total remaining debt for the construction of the school was about $7.4 million. In 2001, voters approved the levy that generated about $14.8 million to fund construction. “This underscores the board’s commitment to the community, to be good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars by seeking cost savings whenever and wherever possible,” said John Ervin, a member of the school board.

Marina District moving forward, again Continued from front page and room for expansion of the Great Lakes Maritime Museum, or possibly other museums or cultural attractions. Consultants are hoping that cultural aspects will highlight and educate on Toledo’s rich history of innovation and history. That includes preserving and incorporating the historic gatehouse, a one-story brick building that was once part of the Toledo Edison plant that stood on the property. The Framework Plan also proposes expanding East Broadway to provide an entrance into the Marina District. In the park, the Framework Plan calls for bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways within the site and bike connections to the surrounding neighborhood plus enhanced fishing, boating and river access. Creating an ‘eco-village’ Hermann said any residential development should include sustainable features that prevent overflow from draining into the river and could take advantage of renewable energies. His presentation included ideas from similar developments, called “eco-villages,” on Detroit Shoreway in Cleveland and another riverfront development in Portland, Oregon. Hermann adds that any residential development must be “carefully done” and respect the architectural history of East Toledo

but it must be modern at the same time. He said demonstration projects could showcase new ways to be energy efficient, new architecture or other amenities. It could take advantage of urban gardens, and he said the Metropark could play a role in that. He said such a residential project has to be so “benchmark” that any potential residents would be willing “to take a chance”, but he warns, “It’s not going to happen overnight. It has to be something you can build on.” District 3 councilman Peter J. Ujvagi noted that residential housing growth in downtown Toledo is continuing, and he sees that growth potentially coming across the river. He mentioned some successful mixed use developments in Europe, which he believes could be a model. “We’re not there yet, but I really do believe we’re beginning to get very close to property values in downtown rising in terms of residential, so there’s going to be some opportunities here,” Ujvagi said. “You guys have heard me — I believe the river should be a ‘uniter,’ not a divider, and this is a unique opportunity for that. “I will share, I had an opportunity to spend a little time in Central Europe — Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, and man,

do they like mixed use, which people break out in hives at the planning commission (in Toledo) when you talk about mixed use. “But, there’s really some phenomenal examples of exactly what (Hermann) was talking about—commercial, retail, restaurants, housing on top, they are neighbor-friendly, very children-friendly, closely knit with low impact playgrounds, and places for people to gather and play chess. There are a lot of different ways to draw people in and if we can take advantage of that, I think we could be in good shape.” Hermann says the next steps are to send RFPs seeking developers for the residential, office, and retail side of the project and to forward the sale of the property to the Metroparks, which also promises to get the public involved on how to develop its park space along the river. Ujvagi added, “Those of you who know me, I’m pretty stiff-necked and hard-headed about things, and usually I’m very critical about plans when they start off because it’s imposed on us instead of us having the opportunity to be part of it. It’s not often that I can say this — I really am impressed with this, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because it’s not a plan — it’s a direction we can go and all of us can be part of making those decisions.”

In Memory Let Him Fly There is a wreath on the door He don’t live here no more As of today, He flew home And we all gathered here In sorrow and tears It won’t be the same with him gone There is a place on the hill That is peaceful and still Where he will sleep beside Gladys again The ole family tree is shedding its leaves But we’ll all meet In Heaven again.

Mobile Meals

Seeking volunteers for Walbridge, Oregon By Melissa Burden Press Contributing Writer Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity where you make a difference each time you donate your time? Mobile Meals of Toledo has the perfect volunteer “job” based on your availability. “Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others,” Toledo-born actor Danny Thomas said. Mobile Meals is looking for a few good volunteers to help deliver food to seniors, the ill, disabled and homebound needing assistance. Volunteers for regular routes and substitutions are needed for pickup out of Mercy St. Charles (Navarre & Wheeling). According to Paige Strancar, volunteer coordinator, the number of volunteers in the area have dropped off in recent months. “Many of our volunteers are retirees,” Strancar said. “Many of them have been

delivering the meals for years and they are not able to do it anymore. We are hoping to get new volunteers to replace them.” Starncar said volunteers are needed to deliver meals out of Mercy St. Charles Hospital in Oregon. Clients are located in Oregon, Northwood, Walbridge, Rossford, Millbury and all points east. Other pick-up site locations available are Mercy Campus (Jefferson Avenue), Great Lakes Light & Sound (Hill Avenue & Arco Drive), Gordon Food Service (Alexis Rd near Lewis Avenue), St. Luke’s Hospital (Maumee) and Medical Mutual (on Sylvania Avenue near Talmadge). “We would love to get volunteers who are willing and able to take their lunch hours and make the deliveries as well as retirees who have the time to help someone who is homebound,” Strancar said. “Right now we have 30 clients in the area, but that number will grow in the winter, when many people are not able to get out.” Volunteers can deliver twice a month or, if they have time, once a week, Strancar

said. Volunteers can also help the client in ways beyond the delivery of nutritious meals. “We ask that volunteers be the eyes and ears for the organization,” she said. “They can report things that may be abnormal to case managers or the family. They may help heat the meal, and socialize with our clients. Many of them are homebound and really do appreciate the company.” Many of the people who use Mobile Meals can refer themselves to the agency. Clients are also referred by their doctors and by family members. “Mobile Meals helps people to be able to stay independent and in their own homes longer,” she said. “It also helps the caregiver by alleviating the worry about what to cook for each meal or where that meals is going to come from.” To volunteer, please call Paige Strancar at 419-255-7806. You can also fill out a form online at More information can also be had by emailing

Oak Harbor Continued from front page cuts since February 2014 from the general fund and a total of $1.3 million in cuts from all funds combined. The result, he said, has left 10 positions vacant. Also, repairs and maintenance of alleys and sidewalks have been reduced. Additional spending cuts are possible if the police levy fails, Genzman said. Village council has not discussed specific planned cuts to the police department, but would review all departments in the general fund for further reductions,” he said. Last year, voters in the village rejected a levy for the park system.

People Upgrade to rely on donations Thanks to donations of money and labor, the administration offices of the Woodmore School District at 349 Rice St. in Elmore will be receiving a paint job, new carpeting and file cabinets and other improvements without any tax dollars being spent. Before Jay LeFevre, the district’s interim superintendent, moved into his office this summer, plaster was falling from the ceiling – the building was constructed in 1888, according to records in the Ottawa County Auditor’s office – and it was decided to have him work out of a different room. Jaime Pearson, the district’s treasurer whose office is also located in the aging building, discussed the need for upgrades with Joe Liszak, school board president. The two agreed improvements were needed. In addition to the plaster problem, the carpet is torn in many places and file cabinets and furniture are dated. Liszak is donating his board salary for the year, about $1,650 after taxes, to the effort. In addition to his donation, Pearson said several companies that do business with the district are also contributing: Genoa Banking and Perry ProTech have pledged donations of $2,500 each. American Fidelity, and RedTree Investment Group also intend to contribute. The donations will be used to purchase paint, carpeting, fire resistant file cabinets and office furniture. “We are also hanging a sign outside on Rice Street to better advertise our location. The sign is being created by the students of Woodmore schools through their woodworking and art classes,” Pearson said. “The district would like to thank the businesses and everyone else who is contributing.” LeFevre, Pearson, her assistants, Connie Icsman and Dianne Kopp; Barb Hasenfrantz, the superintendent’s secretary, and board members will be doing the work, according to Liszak. Aerial photos of the district’s school buildings and the villages of Elmore and Woodville, taken by drone camera, will adorn the freshly painted walls – a donation of Sean Rizor, a member of the school board. “Not one dime will be coming from the school budget,” Liszak said. “We can’t afford to be using tax dollars at this time. This shows how people can come together.” He’s donated his board salary the past two years to the Academic Boosters and Drama Club. “I’ve always believed serving on the board is a civic duty,” he said.

Drug abuse focus of chamber forum By Larry Limpf News Editor The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce is donating $250 to help two recovering drug addicts in their effort to help others. Bill Kegerize, chamber president, said the donation will go to Solomon Lutheran Church in Woodville where Nate Kehlmeier and Erika Warren hold sessions for addicts and their families dealing with drug abuse. Their program, called Families Recover Too, is offered Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. Kegerize said the donation will cover costs for renting a room at the church for a year. The chamber also recently sponsored a forum called, Save A Life, attended by about 90 persons at Genoa High School. Warren and Kehlmeier, from the Woodville and Genoa areas respectively, gave personal accounts of their struggles to overcome addiction and Ottawa County officials outlined what is being done to address the problem. Dr. Daniel Cardigan, the county coroner, completed his presentation by reading a list of the 12 or so people who died in the county of overdoses during the past year. The crowd was silent as he read the initials, age, gender and what drugs were found in those who died. Several had more than one drug in their systems. “It really can be anybody you know,” he said, adding that one woman had been active in her school’s 4-H program. “When I get the call, it’s usually too late.” And a drug sale can be done anywhere.

Everybody stops using heroin. Either on their terms or the heroin’s terms.


Joel Barton, a member of the Ottawa County Drug Task Force, told of an undercover cocaine transaction he conducted in the restroom of a fast-food restaurant in Genoa while a third party was in the next stall. “The bad guy had a gun, nobody else knew what was going on,” he said. Nationally, the addiction problem stems largely from the over prescription of drugs such as Oxycodone and Hydrocodone, he said, “Where are they going to go from there? They need opiates to function and people trend to heroin,” Barton said. The going price of one gram of heroin, about the size of a Sweet ‘N Low sweetener packet, ranges around $300 and many addicts in the county make the trip to Toledo to make the purchase, he said. That’s where Erika Warren, who’s been recovering since 2013, spent much of her time buying drugs after becoming addicted. “I couldn’t hold a job for more than 30

days because I would steal,” she told the crowd. Three episodes in particular stand out in her memory: The day her father finally followed through on his threat to call the Woodville Police Department; an officer of the department stating in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court that she was a ‘threat to the community” and Lucas County Common Pleas Court Judge Ruth Ann Franks calling her a “monster.” Nate Kehlmeier said he’s been sober since Jan. 13, 2008. When he was 21 he dislocated his ankle while playing basketball and began taking pain pills. The path from Oxycontin to heroin took only a year or so, he said. “Mind you, I was from the small town of Genoa.” “Everybody stops using heroin. Either on their terms or the heroin’s terms,” he said, urging those attending to reach out to anyone they know who is struggling with addiction. “Tell them you’re not there to judge them.” Sheriff Stephen Levorchick said his deputies have been carrying Narcan with them while on patrol for about three years. It blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose. So far in 2016, they’ve recorded six saves. One person was saved twice within three days. County prosecutor Mark Mulligan and James VanEerten, the county’s drug court administrator, explained how the court system is becoming more focused on treatment programs rather than incarceration for addicts who seek treatment.

Local union leader is charged with theft By Press Staff Writer A former president of the United Steelworkers Local 5000 union has been charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the labor union. David R. Sager, 58, of Gibsonburg, was indicted on nine counts of embezzlement or theft, 18 counts of mail fraud, one count of obstructing justice and one count of making false statements to law enforcement officials. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Northern District of Ohio Office, Local 5000, which is based in Middleburg Heights, went on strike in 2009 after failing to reach a contract agreement with a company identified as Company 2 in the indictment. The company proposed eliminating the position of contract coordinator, which Sager held. The union began to establish a strike fund and Sager and two other union officials were signatories on the bank account, according to the indictment. To claim strike fund benefits, members had to submit a voucher and a copy of a bill. The voucher was then reviewed by

a committee on which Sager served. Once approved, the voucher and documentation was forwarded to the fund signatories for approval. A union official identified in the indictment as labor official 2 issued checks as payments on the vouchers. The indictment contends Sager submitted more than $185,000 in vouchers to receive fund benefits between 2010 and 2012. According to the indictment, he and his wife had nearly $160,000 in income during that time and while collecting fund benefits he purchased concert tickets and dined out at several restaurants. The strike ended in 2012 and the company reinstated Sager as a wheelsman and assigned him to work aboard a vessel, He received personal leave and didn’t return to work on the vessel. The company terminated his employment. On May 16, 2013, an employee of another company sent an email to some employees which noted, “We are on the verge of losing Local 5000 if we can’t come up with an arrangement and I am afraid (another union) will pick up the pieces and be-

come the sole course of crew manpower on the lakes,” the indictment says, citing union sources. On July 11, 2013, that company and another signed a joint employment trust agreement with Local 5000, which they renewed a year later. A company identified as company 3 refused to participate in the agreement and told Sager and others it violated the Taft-Hartley Act. In May 2014, an employee of company 3 sent an email to coworkers stating: “You will notice that (Local 5000) is coming back at us for the Joint Employment Trust (aka Sager’s pay),” the indictment says. It contends Sager received about $203,500 from 2013 to 2015 from Local 5000 checks that were funded in part by payments from companies 4 and 5 through the trust agreement. Local 5000 represented about 100 employees working for companies around the Great Lakes. Sager served as president of the local from 1999 through April 2016, the indictment says.

Love for NFL puts Woodville photographer on field By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer

During the Detroit Lions-Pittsburgh Steelers pre-season game at Heinz Field in downtown Pittsburgh, tight end David Johnson (Arkansas State) runs around left as tight end Jesse James (Penn State) runs interference. (Photo by Alberto Onderko) “He was fast,� Onderko said. “One second you see him and in another second he’s on the field making a play. If you didn’t have your camera fixed on him from the time the play started, you wouldn’t get anything. He was unpredictable.� Onderko has worked at the Heinz processing plant in Fremont for 17 years. When the Steelers have a home game he will leave his Woodville residence around 2 a.m. Saturday morning and usually comes home right after the game. He added an assistant, Tony Arriaga, to help him during games this season. So what is it like working an NFL sideline? Onderko said photographers have to remember that they are there to do a job, just like the players are there to do their job. “You’re not allowed to talk to them unless they initiate the conversation,� Onderko said. “There are certain boundaries where you’re allowed. You’re not allowed between


He got a laugh out of it. I said, 'That was closer than I thought it was.'


Al Onderko Jr. has always held a special place in his heart for the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I always took my dad (Albert Onderko Sr.) to Steelers games,� said Onderko, a 1984 Gibsonburg High School graduate who now lives in Woodville. “I said, ‘One of these days I will be on the field taking pictures’ and my dad gave me this look like, ‘Yeah, right.’ He passed away in 2007, so every time I go to a game I dedicate it to him. “My grandfather was a Steelers fan and my dad was a Steelers fan. I became a Cowboys fan when I was in the sixth grade, just to get some color in the house and get some competition going. That was one year, then I went back to the Steelers and I have been a die-hard fan ever since.� Onderko,50, wrestled and he played football at Gibsonburg before he became interestAlbert Onderko ed in photography. Several years ago he said he answered an ad in a newspaper about taking photos for the United Press Corps. That organization got him a photo pass to be on the field for the Steelers’ game against New England at Heinz Field in 2005. “When I got the opportunity to do that first game,� Onderko said, “I looked at my dad and I can say I’ve never seen him more proud. It was an amazing experience.� Onderko started out taking pictures of beer cans and bottles on rocks, “just to get used to taking pictures.� He said he took photos of models for their portfolios and then moved on to wedding photos. “I got away from that when I started doing NFL games,� Onderko said. He shot three Pittsburgh home games in 2005, took some time off and resumed shooting the Steelers in 2009. He took another break and shot the Steelers in 2012, and he has been to every home game since. “The Press Corps sets us up with the Steelers and they send me the credential,� Onderko said. “This year I got the whole (media) package in advance, instead of doing it game by game. I love the game of football.� Onderko said the most difficult player for him to get a good shot of was Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.

the 30-yard lines because that area is considered a locker room on the sidelines. You’re not allowed to take pictures of the players when they’re just sitting on the benches, unless you are with the NFL.� An NFL sideline can be a dangerous place. Onderko said he was almost run over by Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green last season after Green caught a pass. “He almost hit me,� Onderko said.

“I’ve come close to getting hit a couple times. I’ve been hit in the head with a football. A friend was watching that game and taped it. He said, ‘I want you to watch something.’ He got a laugh out of it. I said, ‘That was closer than I thought it was.’ � Onderko added that two of his favorite NFL photos he’s ever taken were in 2013 and 2012. “In 2013, I got a photo of (Steelers receiver) Antonio Brown catching a ball in the end zone against the Bears,� Onderko said. “In 2012, the Steelers were playing the Eagles and Michael Vick fumbled the ball and three Steelers were going after it. One of the Steelers, Larry Foote, got the fumble. When it bounced off the ground, I got the ball in mid-air showing the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness month. “What that ribbon represented that month and how the play turned out, I really liked that picture.�

Ignoring history? To the editor: Being inducted into any Hall of Fame should be the greatest reward an athlete can achieve, as it should reflect his or her greatest accomplishments and/or contributions made during a high school or post-graduate career. Being the first individual or team to achieve such distinction is even a greater honor, as it demonstrates historical significance. Being the first also implies a standard of excellence for which future inductees will be forever compared. This year’s Genoa Hall of Fame class includes the first soccer player, Cory Hornyak, a truly worthy inductee who helped establish the school’s strong men’s soccer program under Coach Dave Bertz. Another true first is that Coach Tom Kontak’s 2006 softball team that thrilled Comet loyalists to an unprecedented run to a final four in a rain-delayed 11 p.m. starting time. However, such is not the case for the 1999 baseball team’s inclusion in 2016. The first Comet baseball team to set the standards for which other teams to equal or surpass was that of Coach Bob Baird’s 1974 team. They were the first baseball team to reach the Final Four. In losing to state champion Cincinnati Reading 4-0, the team concluded the season as Suburban Lakes League and AA regional champions with an outstanding 20-6-1 record. Whether a procedural flaw in the induction process created this oversight is always a possibility and should be rectified. After all, HOFs oft times are about those who were omitted and not those who were honored. Subjectivity is, after all, a parameter for selection in many cases. If, however, this was a matter of willful commission due to petty jealousies or personal agendas, the committee and its guilty members should be rightly admonished. The 1999 team has earned its place in the Genoa HOF for 2016 for the Final Four trip to Columbus. Its stellar season and induction has been made very shallow by becoming the first baseball team to enter the Comet Hall. That team will never be the first to achieve a Final Four finish. A proud, learned baseball community of Genoa knows of the great 1974 team and its accomplishments, even if the committee

Vigilance needed To the editor: I turned 86 last month. I try to stay active and have a good social life but about every three or four months, I find that I’ve slipped a bit more, and am less capable and more forgetful. It’s very irritating. Business people have cheated me. I purchased a $600 easy chair. When my chair was delivered, it was not the one I had paid for. It was a chair that cost $200 less. In the last 10 years, auto repair shops have cheated me out of many hundreds of dollars. I have thought to get even, so if and when my doctor tells me I only have three to six months to live, I will go out in the middle of the night and shoot out the windows of those crooked businesses with a BB gun. No I will not. In the Good Book, God says, “Vengeance is mine.” A couple of years ago, I had 15 to 20 telephone calls a week from obvious scammers. I stopped answering their calls. These days, I’ll get a call about once a week. A few years ago, I often ate at a favorite restaurant. I usually paid with big bills and hand change coming back. Three out of the last four times I ate there, I got shortchanged when paying my bill. Each time, the waitress made it right when I asked her about it. After that, I swore to myself that I would always have plenty of smaller bills so I could pay the correct amount. Truth is, I never went back. Three weeks ago, at one of my favorite restaurants, the waiter gave me someone else’s bill. I called him on it. He apologized. This week, it happened again and I caught it again. Was the waitress so busy she made a mistake, or was she trying to cheat an old guy?

Fundraiser support To the editor: The Sept. 9 fundraiser to benefit Corrie Albright, who is recovering from an intestinal transplant, went extremely well. The winner of the 1.51 carat diamond ring, donated by an anonymous Northwood Jeweler customer and raffled off at the fundraiser, is from Curtice and was very excited. Fundraiser organizers did a great job with the event, which was well attended, thanks to The Press, Channel 11’s Emily Voss, and volunteers who sold tickets and spread the news by word of mouth. Also, thanks to out-of-state supporters of the fundraiser, Leeper Printing Company for donating the tickets, appraiser Jim O’Bryant for donating the appraisal, and last but not least, the person who donated the beautiful diamond ring. Corrie was able to attend for a bit and personally thanked all who attended. She and her husband are overwhelmed by the generosity of the community. Please keep her in your prayers to a healthy recovery. Tara Taylor Northwood Jewelers

Do the right thing To the editor: The long-awaited 2016 inductees into the Genoa Athletic Hall of Fame have been released and again, the HOF selection committee has sent the message that the 1974 baseball team does not meet the committee’s high standards for induction. It has been 42 years since the 1974 baseball team made it to the Final Four in Columbus – at the time, only the second Genoa team to accomplish such a feat. However, year after year, the committee has refused to recognize the team’s accom-

plishments. Regardless of continual rejection by the powerful committee, the memoires and the accomplishments of the 1974 baseball team will never be forgotten by those who lived it. I call upon the committee to do the right thing. Remove the personal agenda, if any, and induct the team into the Genoa Hall of Fame. The players deserve the honors. Robert Baird 1974 Baseball Coach Maumee

Two honored as Clay High School distinguished alumni

Carl’s love of the card game Bridge has made him infamous.

Clay High Alumni & Friends Association (CHAFA) will recognize two distinguished alumni at a banquet Saturday, Oct. 1 at Oak Shade Grove in Oregon. Honorees include Carl J. Hudecek, class of 1952, and the late Robert Susor, class of 1963, who is being honored posthumously. • Carl Hudecek, physicist and master bridge player, was nominated by Cliff Bury, also a member of the class of 1952. As a student, Carl was instrumental in organizing and participating in the first golf team at Clay High School, which continues today. In addition, he and his shop class designed and built the first football scoreboard, which lasted for six decades and recently has been digitized and painted. Carl placed high in state scholarship tests in math and science, and received the Renssalaer Science Proficiency Medal, and a full-ride scholarship to the University of Toledo. In 1953, while in college, he designed and constructed Clay’s first grass running track. He was the first student assistant coach for Ted Federici and helped Clay win the prestigious DeVilbiss Night Relays in 1954. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics (magna cum laude) and later received advanced degrees from Ohio State University. Carl joined the U.S. Air Force in 1957 and served minimal active duty in Texas, and later entered the Reserves. He was hired by Owens-Illinois in his sophomore year at the University of Toledo, rising to the position of Manager of Evaluation and Product Testing, then Chief Physicist. He became a specialist in the manufacturing of large TV tubes and equipment design. He also consulted on a “top secret” classi-

fied windshield for the U.S. Department of Defense. Carl was one of the first O-I engineers sent abroad to support “Know How” contracts to teach engineers and managers how to operate glass factories. He was involved in U.S. firms during the 1970s and early 1980s to help end the Cold War and spent time in Russia and the Ukraine. Luckily, he left the Ukraine one day before the explosion of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant. Carl’s love of the card game Bridge has made him infamous. At the age of 21, he was the youngest player to achieve the prestigious Life Master Award for 300 “Master Points.” He has won many Bridge championships including the acclaimed “Omar Sharif Bridge Circus.” He is still regarded as one of the top 30

world experts. In 1959, he played against President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He also hosted a Toledo-area PBS show “Challenge Bridge.” Carl currently restricts his playing to online contests with the likes of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. Carl and his wife, Paula, have two sons, two daughters and two grandchildren. • Robert “Bob/Butch” Susor, business executive, President of NAPA, was nominated by Steven Warrington, class of 1963.

Back to school

It’s time to address our students’ mental health problems By Robin B. Reaves, LPCCs Deputy Director, Mental Health and Recovery Services Board Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot counties It is that time of year again and we would like to focus our attention toward the parents and caregivers of our youths who are returning to school. If your children’s thoughts, feelings or behaviors were causing them to struggle, would you know how to talk to them about it? What if you discovered they were engaging in activities that were potentially destructive or even harmful? If they came to you looking for help, would you know what to do? Recent studies have found as many as one-third to one-half of adolescents in the U.S. have engaged in some type of non-suicidal self-injury. Self-injury often begins around the ages of 12-14, and it is most commonly the

result of feelings of sadness, distress, anxiety, or confusion. Many often use self-injury as a way to cope with these negative emotions. Some may find themselves with a constant preoccupation with a perceived defect or flaw in his/her physical appearance, which may not be observable to others, or appears only slight. Some may focus on the numbers on the scale, and develop unhealthy eating habits that can put both mind and body at risk. Others may engage in body-focused repetitive behaviors like hair-pulling or skin-picking, which are related to obsessive-compulsive disorder and cause shame and isolation. If you think your son or daughter is dealing with low self-esteem or poor body image, is feeling depressed or is engaging in risky behaviors like disordered eating, self-injury or body-focused repetitive behaviors, there is hope and there is help. Mental Health America (MHA) has developed tools and resources to inform

both students and parents about why mental health matters, and how self-esteem, self-image and the disorders that affect the way young people see and treat themselves can affect a student’s overall health. Visit back-school to learn more. There are also things as parents or caregivers you should try to avoid. Parents and caregivers often feel comfortable questioning or criticizing a young person’s choices — and generally do so with the best of intentions. Sometimes though, the way the words come out ends up doing more harm than good. When it comes to self-esteem and body image, it is important to remember that words matter. Try not to criticize or point out flaws, but rather encourage your child to talk to you about his or her feelings about their body or self-image. Know that issues of low self-esteem, self-injury, body-focused repetitive behaviors, and distorted

body image are treatable and should be addressed as soon as possible. Just like physical illnesses, treating mental health problems early can help to prevent more serious problems from developing in the future. If you are concerned that you or someone you know may be experiencing a mental health problem, it is important to take action and to address the symptoms early. Start the conversation. Your child will be glad you did. There are also serious signs that someone is in crisis and needs more immediate help. If you or someone you know is in crisis, call 1-800-826-1306. For more information on local resources please visit our website at www. or call 419-448-0640. Robin B. Reaves is Deputy Director of the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties.

Genoa High FFA members help out at Ohio State Fair This summer, some members of the Genoa FFA chapter helped out at the Ohio State Fair. The youths volunteered in the hog barn, starting with the “Barn Olympics,� which engaged young fairgoers in fun activities and challenges based on how swine are shown at the fair. Winning teams got multiple handfuls of candy. After all the fun and games, the Genoa FFA members helped out by cleaning the hog barn and then assisted with weigh-ins. “It was interesting to see how they dealt with the swine compared to other county fairs and how much more participants have to do before they can show,� said Amanda Meng, Genoa FFA chapter reporter. “The pigs went in through pens to get their ears tagged, then to get a tattoo on their backs. Finally, they were placed on the scale to be weighed. They were broken into groups based on their breed. One side of the barn’s show ring had all purebred, and the other side had cross breeds. There were 1,200 pigs at the state fair, and it took over four hours to get all of them tagged and weighed. “The FFA members received many thank-yous for helping at state, and we will be happy to do it again next year,� Meng said.

The Digital Divide

Officer gives lecture on Internet dangers for kids By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer Captain Scott Frank has worked in law enforcement for more than 30 years and has seen new problems arise and become a thorn in society’s side. Recently, he has worked to combat the problem by trying to catch predators while educating people about potential dangers facing children surfing the web through a seminar he calls “The Digital Divide.” Frank, who has worked for both the Ottawa County and Wood County police departments during his career, spoke to the community earlier this month at Oak Harbor High School about the risks that come with children exploring the Internet. Frank is the Captain of Operations for the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and is a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force in Ohio. During his two-hour speech, Frank was blunt at times yet optimistic, stressing that progress can be made in parents’ efforts to monitor their children’s use of the Internet. “We have to have the ‘tough talk,’” said Frank. “We must talk about Internet use, sexting, pornography, bullying and online relationships.” Approximately half of the world’s population – 3.5 billion people – uses the Internet, including 88 percent of people living in North America. And whether or not people are communicating via the Internet with a neighbor or someone thousands of miles away, individuals often feel safe and secure when corresponding with someone else, but the truth is there are serious risks. Frank, who is a father of six, notes that children often feel as though they can let their guard down when visiting different websites and communicating with people as an anonymous person. “Online, children know they won’t be

dismissed based on appearance, so it feels safer (for them),” he said. “They think, ‘I can hang out and people won’t judge me or mock me for the way I look.’” Ultimately, the work has to done through a team effort among parents, schools and the police. It’s vital, Frank notes, that parents understand there are people and organizations out there to help keep kids safe. “We need to build partnerships for the sake of our children,” he said. “You’ll probably feel overwhelmed, (but) we have to make sure we talk about this.” He has nine basic tips for parents – have a strategy; practice what you preach; have the “tough talk”; make the rules; do not do this alone; do the Internet math; consider the risks; go where they go and let the Internet help. Frank stresses that he is not trying to worry parents, he just wants to inform and bring to light the reality of the potential dangers children face while using the Internet. Parents must govern their kids’ Internet use, Frank said. “Consider a contract. Taking away the Internet may not always be the best option – it can be a deterrent to having kids tell you something is going wrong. They’ll get to the Internet one way or another. You’d rather it be at your house than at someone else’s house or school. If you can turn it off, someone else can turn it on. It’s their world – it’s their digital world and they’re creating it. Everything you can do with your computer, I can do with my smart phone.” For his efforts, Frank was honored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Wood County back in May. Lecture attendees also learned about various social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Tinder, along with Peer2Peer, FaceTime, WhatsApp, AfterSchool and Chat Roulette,

among others. They heard about applications that parents can use like McGruff Safe Guard, Net Smartz, iSafe, iKeepSafe, Enough is Enough and Frank also discussed Internet bullying. It is estimated that 35 percent of kids have been threatened online and almost 20 percent have experienced this more than once. Frank referenced a young girl from British Columbia named Amanda Todd, who was bullied in person and on the Internet for nearly two years from 2010-12 before com-

mitting suicide. A topless photo of her circulated across the Internet and she was later blackmailed, creating a snowball effect that saw things progressively get worse and worse for her. Frank’s PowerPoint presentation is available at For more information, contact Frank at 419-734-6827 or

Volley for Life in memory of Brandon Morris

The Northwood and Cardinal Stritch volleyball teams celebrate together after their Volley for Life fundraiser, which benefited Life Connections. It is the first time this sort of thing has been done by Stritch volleyball for Life Connections. Those attending were asked to wear blue or green to raise awareness for organ, eye and tissue donations. The fundraiser was held in memory of Brandon Morris, who was designated “Son. Brother. Friend. Organ Donor. Hero.” in promotional materials. The 30-year-old Morris, a Northwood resident and 2004 Stritch graduate and football player, passed away after struggling with a longtime addiction to heroin and opiate-based painkillers on May 16, 2015 at ProMedical Hospital. His family, stepfather John Clemons, mother Laurie Clemons and sister Brittany Morris, are making an effort to raise awareness about addiction. (Press photo by Doug Karns/

Oak Harbor Middle School finds partner in Apple Oak Harbor Middle School made international news during Apple’s recent event announcing its new flagship smartphone, the iPhone 7. Apple CEO Tim Cook also made several special announcements about Apple’s continued involvement in education. Cook announced that 100 schools, including Oak Harbor Middle School, will be teaching Apple’s popular new programming language, Swift, by adopting Swift Playgrounds as a teaching tool. Middle School teacher and Apple Distinguished Educator, Kelly Croy will be using Apple’s new Swift Playgrounds with a computer and robotics club he co-advises with STEM teacher Aaron Bomer, and in his ELA classroom, highlighting the parallels and similarities between strong readers and writers, and the skills of computer programming. During Apple’s keynote, the audience and viewers around the world could see “Oak Harbor Middle School” prominently displayed next to Cook during his presentation. Swift Playgrounds is a free Apple app for iPads that allows users of all ages to learn the Swift Programming language in a fun way. The language is taught by solving puzzles and actually writing code. Swift is the language that creates the software and apps for Macs, iPads, and iPhones. “Our school is proud to be a part of this initiative and pleased to continue our tradition of innovation and preparing students for future success,” Principal Laramie Spurlock said. Learning to code teaches students to solve problems, work together in creative ways, and offers the ability to build apps that bring your ideas to life, Spurlock said, adding that the skills that make a good computer programmer are the skills that make good learners.

Backpacks and supplies were also giv-

en to kindergarteners in Northwood, Genoa, Woodmore, Rossford, Bowling Green, North Baltimore and Elmwood schools. “Every year, area residents and businesses have given an impressive response and made the ‘Backpack to the Future’ supply drive an outstanding success,” said Kaye Koevenig, Owens Backpack to the Future project chair and Alumni Association board director. “It’s wonderful to assure that many more disadvantaged children will be able to begin their school year with new educational supplies.” Since Backpack to the Future’s inception in 2004, the program has given 5,085 backpacks and 91,000 school supplies to local school children. “Our focus as an organization is to provide value-added programs and services that strengthen the surrounding communities and ensure every students success,” said Laura Moore, Owens Alumni Association executive director.

A fundraiser held September 11 to purchase wreaths for the grave sites of the veterans buried in the Lake Township Cemetery raised more than $2,000. Jeff Pettit, who organized the fundraiser, said about $5,500 in total have been raised. “We had a really good turnout,” he said of the latest event. A local business owner, Pettit is a location coordinator for Wreaths Across America, a non-profit organization dedicated to remembering the sacrifice of veterans by placing wreaths on their graves and holding simultaneous ceremonies during the holidays across the country.

Couples engaged to be married have a lot on their plates as they begin planning their weddings. Whereas tradition once demanded parents of the bride pay for a coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding, nowadays more and more engaged couples are completely or partially financing their own nuptials. That means prospective brides and grooms must develop wedding budgets that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ensure their first act as Mr. and Mrs. is paying down debt. In its 2015 Real Weddings Study, online bridal resource The Knot found that many couples still receive substantial financial support from their parents to pay for their weddings. The survey found that, on average, the brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributed 44 percent of the overall wedding budget in 2015, while couples financed 43 percent (the remaining 13 percent was financed by the groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents and additional sources). Couples who hope to follow that formula or pay for their weddings on their own can heed the following tips to build wedding budgets that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break the bank but will still ensure a day to remember forever. â&#x20AC;˘ Examine your collective finances. Few couples know the details of each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances before getting engaged. While some may still hesitate to share their personal financial information upon getting engaged, an open and honest discussion and examination of each personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances is the only way to develop a realistic wedding budget that both partners can live with. Once couples know what they can contribute, they can then consult their parents to determine if their mothers and fathers are intending to contribute. â&#x20AC;˘ Develop a preliminary guest list. A preliminary guest list can give couples an idea of how large and expensive their weddings will be. According to the Real Weddings Study, the average cost per wedding guest in 2015 was $237. While that cost can vary greatly depending on geography and other factors, couples should keep that figure in mind when drafting their guest lists. If need be, keep costs down by trimming the guest list so it includes only close family members and friends. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on gifts. Many couples justify runaway wedding budgets by telling themselves that they will ultimately get the money back via wedding gifts. While many guests will give financial gifts, counting on such windfalls is a recipe for accruing debt. Do not build potential wedding gifts into your wedding budget. If you do so and your expectations fall short, you could be facing considerable debt upon returning home from your honeymoon. â&#x20AC;˘ Gather quotes before choosing where to tie the knot. Where couples get married will have a great impact on how much money they will spend on their weddings. For example, the Real Weddings Study found that, in 2015, the average wedding in Manhattan cost couples slightly more than $82,000, while the average Alaskan wedding cost just over $17,000. Venues within the same city can vary greatly with regard to pricing and offerings as well, so couples should give themselves ample time to gather quotes and find an affordable venue they like. â&#x20AC;˘ Build extra costs into your budget. When determining a budget you can live with, remember to include a little extra for unforeseen costs. Weddings are large undertakings, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasonable to expect some unforeseen costs to arise. Building such costs into your initial budget will make these unforeseen circumstances that much easier to handle. Budgets can help couples stay on track and avoid debt as they plan their weddings.

Bears-Rangers showdown could decide champion By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer

The Press


From 1986-2000, Gibsonburg and Northwood competed as members of the old Suburban Lakes League before the Rangers moved on to the Toledo Area Athletic Conference to compete amongst schools more their size. The transition has worked well for Northwood as its won 10 league titles in 15 years in the TAAC while losing just eight league games during that span. It has also made it to the playoffs nine times. The Golden Bears also found themselves in a similar position after competing in the SLL for 40 years. Gibsonburg, too, had become the smallest team in the conference. Since moving to the TAAC in 2011, Gibsonburg has gone 33-18 and 24-10 in the league, a run that included a conference championship and playoff appearance last year. The Bears would have won the league and made it to the playoffs just two years ago, but fell to the Rangers, 21-13, ruining an undefeated season. This year, the Bears are undefeated at 4-0 and 1-0 in the TAAC, the Rangers 2-2 and 1-0, and playoff implications are also on the line. Just two years ago, Gibsonburg missed the playoffs despite going 9-1, so it knows the importance of accumulating valuable computer points. And Northwood has two winless teams left on its schedule, meaning the computer points it could garner with a victory over the Bears are that much more vital. The Bears won their first their two games convincingly, defeating former SLL foes Elmwood (64-26) and Lakota (44-26) before edging Fremont St. Joseph, 26-19. Then, the Bears routed Toledo

Christian, 64-6, behind four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing) from Ryan Clark, who accounted for 241 yards of total offense (130 passing, 111 rushing). Kane Gomez had two touchdowns, one on defense and the other on special teams, Isaak Arriaga caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for a score while Alex Richards and Jared Harrison caught touchdown passes, Madison Jaso ran for a touchdown and Jesse Arriaga recovered a fumble in the end zone for a score. Northwood coach Ken James, now in his 31st year, says it will take a strong defensive effort to stop Gibsonburg’s playmakers. “They’re scoring a bunch of points. They look good, pretty similar to last year. We’re going to have to play great defense. They’re pretty good at manufacturing big plays. We’re going to have to get off the field on third down,” said James. “On offense, we can’t turn it over. They’re going to put men up in the box to stop the run. We’re going to have to get better throwing the ball. We’ve got to be a little more balanced on offense and more efficient throwing the ball. And protecting the ball is going to be the key. Obviously, our kids are going to be pumped.”

Coming Soon...Freezing Cold, Unpredictable Weather!

Mack, Fritz return The Rangers opened the season with a 42-28 victory over Woodmore as running backs Trevor Mack (138 yards, 2 TD) and Gavin Fritz (133 yards, 2 TD) combined for 21 carries and 271 yards and four touchdowns while quarterback Tim Romstadt added six carries for 86 yards and two scores. Unfortunately, Mack and Fritz missed the next two games, losses to Lemoyne Road rival Lake (33-6) and Rossford (49-20), before coming back with a 37-18 win over Edon. They returned with a vengeance, rushing for a total of 272 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Wishbone attack. Fritz had 10 carries for 155 yards and two touchdowns (91, 22) and Mack carried the ball seven times for 117 yards, which included a 61-yard score. Romstadt was magnificent as well, finishing with 18 carries for 144 yards and a score and Noah Cornelison added a 5-yard touchdown run. Mack and Fritz aren’t the only players who have missed time. Two key defensive players, tackle Tyler Arman and linebacker Andrew Claus, have also been out. Now that the club is closer to full strength, it can be expected to perform at a higher level. “I think we’ve had a different lineup every week. We had two running backs rush for 140 yards in the first week and they were out for two weeks; we’ve had some injuries, but that’s football,” said James. “We were rotating guys in and out of the lineup with so many injuries. We go pretty hard at practice. That’s why you try to build depth.” Gibsonburg’s success isn’t just about joining a league with schools more comparable in size. It’s deeper than that, and James has noticed. James says it’s a testament to the job Reser, now in his seventh year, has done with the program, as well as the community for their support.

“Steve’s done a really nice job. They’ve done all the stuff you need to do to build a program. He’s made the kids tougher, he’s got an offseason program and a system they run that they stick to — those are all the things that lead to success,” said James. “They’ve won 19 games over the last two seasons, they’re doing everything they need to, and things kind of fell into place. They’re getting some good athletes in the program, they’re getting some continuity; they’ve been able to build the program, and the kids know what to expect.” The two teams faced each other for the 15 years they were both in the SLL, and both did have their share of good runs. The Rangers won a league title in 1991, and the Bears, under former coach Tom Pfeiffer, had an very impressive run from 19992002, including winning three conference championships while making it to the playoffs four times. James has never forgotten some of those games. “In my second year, we were struggling and we had a chance to beat them but missed a field goal. Back in 1990, we had a barnburner — it came down to the end, they were a really good team, and we won 27-17, but we were down at the half and had to crawl back. We went on a little roll where we were pretty good and won the league in ‘91,” James said. “In ‘96, I believe we lost 22-19 — it was a weird game, we had thought we stopped them on the goal line near the end, (but the officials) ended up giving them a touchdown,” continued James. “They went on a run in the late ‘90s and the early 2000s. A few years ago, they were undefeated and we were able to beat them. Last year, they put it to us pretty good. It’s fun to have good competition and games that are meaningful and that’s something the kids look forward to.”

After hard-fought match, Comets get back to winning By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Genoaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soccer team has had many more good days than bad days. One particular Saturday was one of those bad days, when Oak Harbor scratched out a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Comets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oak Harbor is a great team,â&#x20AC;? secondyear Genoa coach Josiah Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a physical game and they scored a goal off a fluky corner kick. We had our opportunities, it was just one of those days where we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bounce the ball in the net. It was a good wake-up call.â&#x20AC;? The Comets bounced back three days later, earning a 1-0 non-conference win over a tough Swanton squad and then downed Northern Buckeye Conference opponent and state-ranked Woodmore, 1-0. Against Swanton junior midfielder Sydney Wagner scored the lone goal off a free kick for Genoa (6-1-2), which is ranked third in Division III in the Northwest Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association poll. In the win over Woodmore, the 7-1 Wildcats outshot the Comets 22 to 3, but it was the Comets who prevailed, providing the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cats with their only loss of the season. The Comets have relied heavily on their defense. The crucial league win over Woodmore provided Genoa with five shutouts this season. Genoa has outscored opponents by a combined 21-4 -with Lake the only team to score twice in a 2-2 tie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our two center defenders, Alexis Schumaker and Valerie Marquardt, are outstanding together and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back in form,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is their second year together and they are meshing together. We have a freshman, Mackenzie Schmidt, who has started every game on defense and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been awesome this year. She has a lot of room to grow, but she has made a big impact on our defense.â&#x20AC;? Genoaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth defender is junior Ellie Schwalbe, whom Hanson said is one of the hardest workers on the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She sets a great example,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have seven freshmen on the team and Ellie makes sure everyone is in the right mindset. She is always working hard

Hannah Rowland, a defensive midfielder and one of three captains, scored the lone goal in the Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1-0 win over Huron on Sept. 3. The goal came late in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has been a great leader and helps tighten up that middle,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so much better in the midfield with her out there.â&#x20AC;? Wagner has four goals this season and serves as a team captain after earning second-team all-conference honors last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sydney is the heart and soul of this team,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She holds down the midfield and we would not be where we are without her.â&#x20AC;?

season as a starter. Edwards has a schoolrecord 486 career saves heading into the Woodmore contest, and that put her well over the 500 mark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an extremely talented athlete,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is very quick. She also starts on the basketball team and is really coming into her own. She is communicating and setting herself up well. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing smarter and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to see.â&#x20AC;? Freshman forward Tatum Neumann leads the Comets with six goals, while sophomore midfielder Marissa Young has five goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put Tatum up top and she is a phenomenal young player,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has some special things in her future, things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach. She has great touch and a sense of awareness, and she works hard. She is always looking to get better

and she looks to the juniors and seniors for advice.â&#x20AC;? Hanson said Kendall Gerke, who also plays forward, is another promising freshman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kendall is an extremely hard worker and wants to be the best,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to see her and Tatum compete at practice. They can really push each other and they can be a fun dynamic duo over the next couple years here.â&#x20AC;? Hanson said he had each girl on the team write down individual and team goals at the beginning of the season. He said goal No. 1 was to claim the NBC championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the girls want and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I want as a coach,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about anything tournament-wise yet. I want our main focus to be on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at hand, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning the league.â&#x20AC;?

SEPTEMBER 26, 2016

Coach believes his ‘Cats can find a rhythm By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Woodmore’s boys soccer team hasn’t been at full strength all season, and coach Carlo Pocino is anxious to see what the Wildcats can do the rest of the way. The ‘Cats routed non-league opponent Delta 9-2 last week to improve to 4-5, but the Northern Buckeye Conference has proved to be a tougher task. Their other losses were to Huron, Cardinal Stritch and league foes Lake, Genoa, and Eastwood. Woodmore, which finished 8-6-3 and fourth in the NBC last season, has also beaten Otsego, Rossford, and Edison. “We looked really good after four scrimmages and Otsego (5-0 win on Aug. 25),” said Pocino, in his 11th season. “We ended up with a couple of injuries that hurt at midfield and forward.” Senior midfielder Matt Duslak and sophomore forward Hayden Heidebrink both missed time on the field before Duslak returned on Sept. 6 and Heidebrink on Sept. 7. Duslak scored seven goals a year ago and is a three-year letterman. “Duslak missed four games and wasn’t up to where he’s supposed to be (after returning),” Pocino said. “With conditioning, Heidebrink may not be ready right away. I have other people who stepped into those shoes.” Heidebrink had five goals last year and is trying to bounce back from a hip injury. “He and Brandon Blausey control the midfield,” Pocino said. “Those two can pretty much stop anything down the middle. Hayden is a big guy who kind of intimidates some players. He has decent ball control.” Woodmore is young this season, with three freshmen usually in the starting lineup. Pocino said the youngsters have “looked good” but they still need more “seasoning.” “They’re still kind of afraid of the big guys,” Pocino said, “but hopefully by the end of the season they will be OK. We are hoping they are better by playoff time.” The Wildcats’ top offensive players are junior forward Eli Rogers and Blausey, a

sophomore midfielder. Rogers has six goals and one assist, and Blausey has two goals and two assists. “Eli is pretty fast and has a wicked shot,” Pocino said. “He is a fast guy and is coming along pretty quick. He beats most fullbacks. Brandon has decent control of the ball and still needs a bit of seasoning to increase his passing percentage. He’s one of those guys who usually starts and finishes the game, unless he asks to come out. He’s starting to see the openings on the defense and make passes for Eli or Matt Duslak to get to so they can take shots on goal.” Woodmore’s defense is led by sophomores Sam Barbee, Ezekiel Treter and Ethan Mason, and freshman Dean Walter. “Ethan is fast and Treter is a solid guy I can put anywhere in the backfield,” Pocino said. “Dean is starting to come on. I usually sub him in with Ethan Mason. The two swap back and forth. Dean is good but he’s

still rough as far as containing position. That’s something we’re working on to make sure they stick to.” Other key players are junior midfielder Cole Cutchall, sophomore midfielders Cole Anthony and Noah Whitney, and sophomore forward Alex Garcia. Senior midfielder Connor Whitney is a three-year letterman, and junior keeper Kevin Paul is coming off a season in which he had 157 saves and earned honorable mention All-NBC honors. “Kevin has improved,” Pocino said. “He’s listening to what I have to tell him.” Pocino added that the Wildcats have set their goals high for the rest of the season. Even though title hopes are nearly dashed, he sees his team capable of playing with the best the league has to offer. “We still have seven games to go. Anything can happen. Then we want to get as far as possible in the (Division III) playoffs,” he said.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2016

Genoa’s backs are for real By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer There is nothing like experience. Paul Patterson will tell you that. The Genoa football coach starts a sophomore at quarterback and a senior and two juniors at running back. All four players saw game action last season, which helped make the transition to 2016 that much easier. The results have been evident on the field. The Comets, whose offense is led by sophomore quarterback Jake Plantz, blew out Elmwood, 53-14, last Friday to improve to 3-1 and 1-0 in the Northern Buckeye Conference. Genoa also has non-conference wins over Scott and Oak Harbor, but two turnovers caught up with the Comets in a 20-9 loss to Sandusky Perkins. Asked if his team looks like a championship contender, Patterson said, “I would say so.” “There is some youth in (the NBC) right now,” he said, “and anything can happen.” The Comets entered the season needing to replace both starting offensive tackles and a tight end, but the backfield has looked strong. It includes senior fullback Matt Bradfield and junior halfbacks Josiah Bradfield and Noah Edwards. Matt and Josiah are brothers while the third brother, Jacob, starts at cornerback. “We’ve got guys who got a lot of experience last year, including our backfield,” Patterson said. “Matt started playing running back the second half of last year after not playing football as a sophomore. We moved him to running back in week three last year. Noah and Josiah both played some running back, and Jake played some quarterback and receiver. “The chemistry here is very good. Our two-a-days went smoother and we didn’t have to teach a lot and they picked it up a lot quicker. Jake has a better grasp of the offense now, as do Josiah and Noah. As a unit, the backs each do different things with their running styles. We are not going to depend on one person to carry the load. You can’t just focus on one of the three, plus Jake. He gives us the ability to use him as a runner, also, so we have four options back there.” Through four games Plantz is 14-for24 passing for 264 yards and three touchdowns. He also has 19 carries for 117 yards and one TD. Matt Bradfield, who led the team in rushing last season, has 64 carries for 318 yards and six scores. “Matt is our inside running threat,” Patterson said. “Usually with a wing-T (offense) you need a strong fullback, and he’s grown into that mold. We threw him into that role last year and he’s gotten better at understanding what the line’s doing in front of him. He does a little bit of everything for us. He’s our kicker and our punter and he’s been a starting linebacker the last two years.” Matt said he didn’t go out for football as a sophomore because he only weighed 135 pounds and never thought he would see the field on Friday nights. And yet, Matt was named a team captain as a junior and he is a captain again this season. “The summer going into my junior year I probably gained 20 pounds,” he said. “My junior year I was 175. I had a chance to start in basketball as a sophomore, so I concentrated on that.”

Noah Edwards. (Press photo by Russ Lytle/ Matt said he and his brothers are friendly competitors at just about everything. “We are huge chess fans, video games ... any kind of sporting activity,” Matt said. “I usually win at chess and they’re a little better at video games. We definitely root for each other during (football) games, but if I get more yards or (Josiah) does, we talk about it. We usually mess with each other after the game.” Edwards is the team’s second leading rusher, with 214 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries. Josiah Bradfield has 25 carries for 205 yards and three touchdowns. “Noah has that kind of play-making ability,” Patterson said. “He returned an interception for a touchdown against Oak Harbor and he returned two punts for touchdowns last week. He’s our big-play guy who, when he gets on the edge or hits a seam inside, he can be gone. Josiah is our shifty runner. He’s long and wiry but he’s tough to get down. He finds a way to slither through things and he’s done that a couple times.” Matt Bradfield said he enjoys being one component of the four-headed monster in Genoa’s backfield. “Josiah and Noah are extremely fast around the edges and they have incredible speed in and out of their cuts,” Matt said. “When you mix that with the inside power I provide, it’s kind of tough to stop. I knew we were going be good, but I didn’t realize how much the coaching has helped us. We’re working on the little things that make a good backfield and we’ve really started to come together.”

Church Worship Guide Deadline: Thursday 11:00 am

Inspirational Message of the Week: Avoiding Strife Lawyers, politicians and teachers are frequently in positions where they must argue persuasively for one position or another. That is part and parcel of their job, and arguing serves.The valuable service of allowing the truth to stand out in contrast to error or ignorance. In many areas of life, however, arguing serves no useful purpose and just creates needless strife and division. When people are making casual conversation it is easy to find things to disagree with, but such disagreements rarely foster peace and harmony. It is tedious to be around someone who is always correcting us. With family, friends, and co-workers it is usually better to find areas of mutual agreement rather than disagreement.


And even when there is disagreement, sometimes the way to resolve the issue is to start with what you agree on and see if you can move on from there. When we must argue, it can usually be done calmly and with civility. Sometimes we find ourselves drifting into argument without realizing how this even happened. As the discussion turns from mild difference of opinion to angry disagreement, our tempers flare and we often say things we will regret. By being less argumentative you will probably find that you get along with others much better. “It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.” —Proverbs 20:3 NIV

Hi, I'm Candy and I'm pleased to meet you! Once upon a time (not too long ago!), I was a petite stray cat AND I was very close to giving birth! Lucky for me, I ended up at Maumee Valley Save-A-Pet. My four beautiful babies Snickers, Licorice, Jellybean and Fudgee - all got adopted, and now I'm patiently waiting for someone to pick me. I know it's hard to resist itty bitty baby kitties and I'm thankful that my children will get to grow-up in wonderful homes, but us adult cats long for families of our own too. And I'm really just a baby myself, born in 2015. I don't mind other cats, but I would prefer a home without small children. Stop by Maumee Valley Save-A-Pet at 5250 Hill Avenue (at Reynolds) Wednesday through Saturday from 12 - 5 pm and let's go home together!
