Community rallies to help save dog A dog facing euthanasia due to a serious injury from a car accident last month had surgery that saved its life, thanks to the generosity of the community. Wind Bearheart’s dog, Grizzly, had hip surgery on Tuesday at Med Vet, in Columbus, and was expected to be home by Friday. Bearhart, of Northwood, thought she’d have to put down her dog because she could not afford to pay for the surgery. But the community came to the rescue after the media highlighted her predicament and donated funds for surgery. “I am just overwhelmed by the generosity of people,” Bearheart said. “I now know there are angels walking on this earth.” On Tuesday, January 22, Bearheart, Grizzly and her dog Chance were passengers in a vehicle traveling back to Northwood after she visited her son, Shane Baumgartner, a paramedic/firefighter at Station No. 9 in Whitehouse. The car was broadsided in Fulton County by another vehicle, which was totaled in the accident. Bearheart was airlifted to The University of Toledo Medical Center in serious condition. She suffered broken bones in her face, injuries to her ribs and

head trauma. Chance, a Siberian Husky, was taken to the fire department in Whitehouse, where he was cared for by her son and his fellow firefighters. Although sore, Chance came out of the accident relatively unscathed. Grizzly, a 14 month old Newfoundland, was taken to an emergency veterinary clinic to be treated for leg injuries and a dislocated hip. Bearheart’s son then took Grizzly to the West Suburban Animal Hospital in Sylvania where he was examined by Dr. Gary Thompson, who suggested that the big bear of a dog go to the veterinary hospital in Columbus for hip surgery. Bearheart, who does not drive, has depended on her dogs for transportation. The three have been seen around Northwood, Toledo, Rossford and Perrysburg, with Bearheart on her sled with wheels, being pulled by

her dogs as she ran errands, visited friends and went sightseeing. Unfortunately, Bearheart, who was struggling to pay for her own medications, could not afford the $6,000 estimated cost for the surgery. If Grizzly could not get the surgery, he would have had to be put down. The insurance company of the other driver would not pay for Grizzly’s veterinary bills because the law considers animals personal property. After an article about Grizzly ran in The Press, donations to a special account at Fifth Third Bank as well as to a Chipin account accumulated quickly. Within two days, there was enough money raised to pay for Grizzly’s surgery. “The story really made a difference,” Bearheart said. “I am just glad his surgery was paid for. It would have broke my heart if I had to put him down. The people who have donated and those who have sent cards and messages have made me believe in people again.” Bearheart said she was also relieved to hear from Dr. Matthew Barnhart, of Med Vet, that Grizzly did not need a total hip replacement, but a procedure that was a bit less costly. Grizzly, who is young and in otherwise good health, would need a Toggle hip surgery, which would cost $4,000.

One day after several farmers in Lake Township took their complaints to the township trustees of snowmobiles trespassing on their fields, township police arrested a Genoa man for just that. Police issued a summons arrest Wednesday shortly before 7 p.m. to Michael J. Lewis, 28, Meadow Drive, Genoa, after an officer observed him crossing a field near the corner of Libby and Lemoyne roads. He was charged with criminal trespassing, according to police. At Tuesday’s meeting of the township trustees, farmers complained of snowmobiles trespassing on their fields, telling them and Police Chief Mark Hummer of acreage planted with winter wheat being damaged and “no trespassing” signs being blatantly ignored. “It’s like a slap in the face,” one grower said of the snowmobilers riding past signs designating private property. The trustees approved a motion to send a letter to State Representative Tim Brown and State Senator Randy Gardner to request tougher legislation for addressing the problem and to contact the Wood County prosecutor’s office for clarification of the current law. “We need to find out what our options are and how much jurisdiction we have,” Ron Sims, a trustee, said after the meeting. Asked by Robert Kapp what measures growers could take, Chief Hummer said they could protect their property if it is being damaged. “Your reaction has to be appropriate,” the chief said. “The best weapon you’ll have is your phone and some patience.” The growers said most of the trespassing occurs between 8 p.m. and midnight and is more frequent on weekends. Chief Hummer told the farmers he’s instructed officers to cite violators and not issue warnings. He said his office will ask the prosecutor for the maximum penalty. He acknowledged the livelihoods of

Injured dog Continued from front page “Because of all of the exercise Grizzly has had, the doctor told me he would make a full recovery and will be able to run again,” Bearheart said. “I was told the recovery time is six to eight weeks. I am just so happy he will be able to run and play again.” Adding to her happiness, Bearheart returned home from Columbus to a box filled with 70 Get Well cards for Grizzly from Holland Elementary School, in Holland. “The cards are so cute and many made me smile and laugh,” she said. “I really needed a good laugh after everything that has happened. The kids even put in dog treats and they sent me a box of chocolate truffles too.” The account at Fifth Third has been closed since enough money was raised, said Bearhart. “People have been so generous and

I did not want anyone to think that I was scamming them or going after more money,” Bearheart explained. “I just can’t thank people enough for all of the donations, prayers, concern and kind words. I just do not know how I am going Grizzly. to pay the community back for all of this. I am going to find a place where I can donate my time once I am healed. There is a little piece of all of us within Grizzly now. It took all of us to make him whole again.” Longtime friend, Michelle Geiermann, of Minneapolis, started a Facebook page for Grizzly. She also started the Chipin account for donations. After the article appeared in The Press, donations to the Chipin account came in

very quickly, according to Geiermann. “In two days, the account jumped to $907,” she said. Grizzly also gained support on the Facebook page, she added, with over 60 “likes.” “The comments have been very supportive and sweet and we can’t thank the paper and the community enough,” she said. The Chipin account was closed on Wednesday, said Geiermann. “We have posted on Facebook that the account has been closed,” Geiermann said. “I have had a number of people ask to be kept informed of Grizzly’s progress so I will keep the Facebook page updated. Many people have asked that we let them know if money is needed for Grizzly’s rehabilitation costs. People have just been so wonderful and kind and Wind is just so appreciative.” For more information on Grizzly and his current condition, visit his Facebook page at LetsHelpGrizzly?ref=ts.

the farmers are being hurt because the snow in many fields hasn’t been deep enough to protect winter wheat, which is planted in the fall. The chief said the township police department will be working with departments from other jurisdictions on the problem. An investigation into a recent burglary in Perrysburg Township involved several agencies, he said, and was enhanced by them having 800 megahertz radios that enable officers to communicate directly with each other. Lake Township police recently upgraded their radios to the 800 system. “I’ve never seen a snowmobile faster than a Motorola,” the chief said. Criminal trespassing is a fourth degree misdemeanor but for violations involving snowmobiles or all-terrain vehicles the fines are doubled, according to the chief. Joe Cornerly, a spokesman for the Ohio Farm Bureau, said growers have to routinely contend with trespassers “Trespassing has always been a problem for farmers. I wouldn’t say we get flooded with complaints from our members but it is a chronic issue we hear about. It led to our work on state legislation that was passed in 2010. The rules require snowmobiles and ATVs to display a license plate and registration sticker. The rules included increased penalties for those who trespass on an all-purpose vehicle and a “third strike and you’re out” provision that allows for the confiscation of their vehicle,” he said. Chief Hummer said snowmobiles can be ridden on public right-of-way.

NutritionZone gets lime-green building By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

Lake Erie Perch Dinner

Northwood officials want this building repainted. (Press file photo by Kelly J. Kaczala)

I was a little bit disappointed with the vote. I thought the pictures of the black awnings broke up the color.

A small, vacant commercial building on Woodville Road in Northwood that was recently painted bright green, to the consternation of city officials, will have to undergo some changes to conform with the more conservative colors of the city’s central business district. There were not enough votes on Northwood’s Architectural Review Committee, which met recently, to allow the business to remain green without adding some touches to tone down the color, according to Kimberly Vaculik, the city’s planning, zoning and economic development coordinator. Vaculik and City Administrator Bob Anderson met last month with Josh Maluchnik, one of the owners of the business, which will be called the NutritionZone. “Josh had ideas of putting up black awnings to break up the brightness of the color of the building,” said Vaculik. “He had asked me to call an Architectural Review Committee meeting so we could officially review the color. We did that last Friday. He sent us photos of the building with the black awnings superimposed on them so we could get an idea of what it would potentially look like.” But the committee split the vote, 2-2. Maluchnik’s changes, some felt, did not go far enough. “Because the vote was tied, the motion [to accept the changes] failed,” said Vaculik. She asked Maluchnik to update the drawings to include more changes in an effort to mute the green. The committee will review the changes again at a meeting on Feb. 8. Maluchnik told The Press that he is confident the issue will be resolved. “I was a little bit disappointed with the vote,” he said. “I thought the pictures of the black awnings broke up the color.” At the next meeting, he will bring photos with more proposed changes, including installing flower boxes, and a repaved parking lot. “We’re going to make it look nice. I am just going to try and dress it up as much as possible, and we’ll go from there,” he said. The building was painted bright green, he said, to match the corporate color of Herbalife, a global nutrition company that promotes nutrition, weight management, and personal care products. He and his business partners are independent distributors of Herbalife products. The color also helps cover up imperfections of the building, which is over 40 years old. “We decided to cover up some of the imperfections with a little bit more vibrant of a paint color,” he said. In addition, the color draws attention to the small building.

“The 750 foot square foot building needs to stand out a little,” he said. Vaculik said the committee will welcome any ideas Maluchnik has, such as the flower boxes. “Basically, we want to see the green broken up more,” she said. “Maybe paint the door and trim black, put large potted plants on the ground in the corners of the building, and flower boxes underneath the windows, so the primary focus is not the bright green color of the building. I understand the use of the green, and pulling it in with the product. But it’s still a bit

much.” Councilman Dave Gallaher, who also sits on the committee, agreed. “We’re doing our best to try and work with him. We want to help him out as much as we can and get him to tone it down a little bit and make the color less vibrant,” he said. Officials at a Dec. 6 council meeting had initially expressed their displeasure of the color of the building, which at one time was a car lot, then a tax service. Councilman Ed Schimmel referred to the building’s color as “neon green,” and he had asked Vaculik to inform the property owner, Larry Oberheu, of Lambertville, Michigan, that the color was unacceptable for the city’s central business district. Maluchnik said the NutritionZone is expected to open within 60 days. He describes the business as a nutrition club that will offer healthy meal replacements and supplements, hold weight loss challenges, and nutrition classes. He also has similar businesses in the area. “We also have NutritionWorks in Genoa, and NutritionDecision in Perrysburg,” he said.

Bowersox to perform T o l e d o School for the Arts is pleased to announce that alumna Crystal Bowersox – will entertain Toledo audiences with a concert on March 3 at the SeaGate Center. The 7:30pm concert with Monte Mar is Bowersox part of an upcom ing tour taking Bowersox from Connecticut to California. Ticket sales begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13. Tickets are available at the Huntington Center Box Office or through Ticketmaster at 800745-3000 and at www.ticketmaster. com. Box office hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. All seats reserved and are $37. Humble beginnings and passion for music have driven the 25-year old Crystal Bowersox to become one of the most recognized young voices and up and coming singer/songwriters in America. An emotive folk-rock-country style has been catapulted from the cramped coffeehouses and cavernous subway tunnels of Chicago to millions of homes across America when she placed second in Season 9 of “American Idol.” The show helped catapult her from obscurity to fame overnight, and though Bowersox is grateful for the exposure, she’s more focused now on what she gained from the competition as an artist and performer. “I’ve always known what kind of artist I am,” the former TSA student says. “But I now know what I’m capable of.”

County changes euthanasia policy By Larry Limpf News Editor The decision by the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners to adopt a different euthanasia policy at the dog warden department is being lauded by an animal advocacy group that has been pushing for reform of county dog shelters for more than 10 years. The commissioners recently approved a two-year contract with Oak Harbor Veterinary Services for euthanasia services by lethal injection instead of continuing to use a carbon monoxide gas chamber. The contract includes a cap of $30,000. Commissioner Jim Sass said the board had been reviewing other options to the chamber and said the change will avoid a lawsuit from the Ohio Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which had been pressuring the county to change its euthanasia procedure. “We still feel we were within the law,” Sass said, adding the commissioners had consulted with the county prosecutor’s office while reviewing the procedure.

also less stressful for the employees. Obviously it’s not something they relish doing.” Landon disagrees. “Most people prefer to be with their pets in order to hold them during the final moments,” she said. “Why should it be any different for a shelter dog?’ She said the Ohio SPCA is requesting the county’s gas chamber be dismantled and scrapped. Sass said there has been no decision yet on what to do with the chamber, which was commercially-built. The county’s dog shelter is self-supporting, operating on users’ fees, fines and penalties. The Ohio SPCA in 2002, when it was known as the Ohio Humane Education Association, began investigating the conditions of county dog ponds, offering assistance and submitting proposals for change. “As a result, guns were silenced; the use of engine exhaust ended, and gas boxes and gas chambers dismantled. Some of these counties have made progress, while others still need pressure from a caring public,” its website says.

Pemberville’s “For the Love of Art”


He said dog warden’s staff routinely tries to find homes for the animals and euthanasia was the “last resort” at the dog shelter. Teresa Landon, executive director of the Ohio SPCA, welcomed the decision to change the policy. “We are pleased to hear that the Ottawa County commissioners have decided to contract with a veterinary clinic and remove the gas chamber from their county dog shelter,” she said. According to the county’s 2011 annual report, 242 dogs were impounded that year. Of those, 92 were euthanized, 65 were adopted and 85 were recovered by owners. The figures were similar in 2010 when 244 were impounded, 94 euthanized, 52 adopted, and 98 recovered. Landon and Sass still have differing opinions on which procedure is more humane, Sass said he witnessed a dog being euthanized last month in the gas chamber and has had a dog he personally owned put down by lethal injection. “I think it (the chamber) is less stressful. That’s just my opinion,” he said. “It’s

Tracks in snow lead to arrests for burglary By Larry Limpf News Editor Additional charges may be filed in a burglary case in the Village of Walbridge in which three adults and one juvenile were arrested, according to Police Chief Ken Frost, who said Thursday the case was still under investigation. According to Chief Frost and records in Perrysburg Municipal Court, charges of burglary and obstructing official business have been filed against Jacob T. Oakley, 18, Elijah M. Parsons-Gugle, 19, and Derek R. Daly,18. Chief Frost said the three reside in Walbridge or surrounding areas. Charges are also pending against the juvenile. Village police were alerted by a passerby early Tuesday morning of a vehicle parked in the driveway of a Wilber Street residence while the occupant was at work. Additional village officers responded and were assisted by officers from Lake Township, Northwood, Rossford, and Norfolk Southern. Chief Frost said K-9 units were used to follow two sets of tracks in the snow that led from the Wilber Street home to a residence in the 200 block of Perry Street where the four were apprehended. “There were several elements at the scene on Wilber that indicated a burglary had been committed,” the chief said. “It was basically stopped in the act.” He said the passerby was familiar with the residence and knew the person living there was at work at the time. The adults were taken to the Wood County jail and the juvenile to the county’s juvenile detention center. “We’re still working on it to determine if other charges should be filed,” the chief said. According to court records, a preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 14 at 9:30 a.m. for Parsons-Gugle and Daly and for a public defender for Oakley.

Conservancy donates property to township Black Swamp Conservancy has acquired an 80-acre tract of land and donated it to Danbury Township in Ottawa County. The property, located on the Marblehead Peninsula, is adjacent to the township’s existing 111-acre Meadowbrook Marsh Preserve and will expand the size of the preserve to more than 190 acres.

The existing 111-acre preserve, owned and managed by the township, includes trails, picnic facilities and an observation platform for wildlife viewing. The new addition connects to the existing preserve to create a cohesive corridor and preserves the remainder of the marsh, which contains a diverse mixture of habitats and harbors a number of rare species.

Sacred Heart rated high in survey The Little Sisters of the Poor Sacred Heart Home received the sixth top score in the 2012 Nursing Home Family Satisfaction Survey conducted for the Ohio Department of Aging. Sacred Heart’s score of 95.63 was the highest from Northwest Ohio. The survey was conducted by the Scripps Gerontology Center of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. More than 27,000 family members and 948 homes participated. The survey asks family members their opinions on such areas as activities, administration, admission, choices, direct care and nursing, meals and dining, social services and therapy. Two other local homes finished with scores 88 percent or higher, which earned an additional quality point in a reimbursement formula used by the Office of Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to reward quality in nursing homes. They were Otterbein Portage Valley, Pemberville and Ottawa County Riverview Nursing Home, Oak Harbor.

Being able and willing to accept where we are in our lives can benefit our peace of mind and add to our personal happiness. We all know that life is not always easy, and that everyone has issues with which to contend; however, our attitude and the way in which we address our daily concerns defines our character and well being. Just as much of our past momentous problems with which we were once so concerned have now hopefully disappeared, future problems will also be taken care of. Therefore we should accept that life is always

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

What is your idea of a perfect Valentine's Day?

Would no Saturday mail delivery have a big affect on you? Yes No To cast your ballot, go to Daniel Garrett Toledo Zoo Toledo “Go to a nice hotel, spend maybe a couple days there. I would make dinner, or I take her out to eat at a nice place whatever she would prefer and just enjoy spending time with her.”

Ana Hunt Burger King Walbridge “Although it’s pretty abstract I would like to go to Bora Bora, It’s so pretty. It would be so nice just to get a hotel or one of those little cabins out on the water.”

New church not needed To the editor: For approximately three years, there has been a large fundraising campaign within the St. Ignatius Catholic community. This faith-centered highpressure campaign is aimed at raising money to build a new church. The main reasons being given for needing a new church are that the building is not big enough and that the handicap accessibility is poor, as well as it is difficult to move caskets in and out of the building for funerals. I find these reasons difficult to accept as a basis for tearing down a perfectly good, historic building and spending millions of dollars to replace it. St. Ignatius is a sound, beautiful church that could be renovated at a fraction of the projected cost of a new building. A small addition for an elevator and additional seating, installation of air conditioning, modernization of kitchen facilities and redecorating of the existing structure would make it, by today’s standards, a comfortable, user-friendly church. A new large, state-of-of-the-art facility is not needed, nor can it be afforded. Membership in the Catholic community, St. Ignatius included, is declining and most parishioners at St. Ignatius are up in years. When these individuals are gone, the proposed building and the overhead will be more than declining active membership can financially maintain. In such uncertain economic times, I find it senseless and morally wrong to spend so much money so foolishly. We have many families in our community who are struggling financially and are going without necessities; therefore, I think that it is time for some soulsearching to be done within the St. Ignatius family. Rather than asking for monetary pledges from the parishioners for a new

Ted Ehrman Advanced Auto Northwood “Going out to eat with my sweetie.”

Monica Budd Goerlich Center Sylvania “Flowers, nice dinner out, some chocolate, and get a babysitter so it could be just the two of us together.”

Last Week's Results Did the increase in your Social Security taxes this year change your spending habits? 93% 445 Votes. Yes. I won’t be spending as much this year as last year. 4% 21 Votes. Yes. I have to save every penny to make ends meet. 3% 14 Votes. No, it did not increase by that much.

church, maybe we should explore ways to help those in need within our community, many of whom are our members who are being strong-armed into giving money that they should be using to provide for their families. I ran across an elderly husband and wife who did not want to give to the church fund, but for some reason through that if they did not donate they could not be buried in the church cemetery. When I was contacted to donate, I told the priest that I would not donate because I did not believe in the tearing down of a perfect and historic building. I do not need a building to have a God. Dave Jaeger Oregon

Common sense on taxes To the editor: It is not surprising Walbridge Village Council recently voted to put the resolution on hold that I introduced regarding a request for state legislation to have all elected and appointed officials current on their tax liabilities. I wonder why they would not think that it is a good idea that elected and appointed officials who control our tax money should not be allowed to do so when they themselves cannot or will not pay their taxes? Seems like common sense to me. Maybe there is the answer. Village council should check again whether it is against the law to not pay their taxes. Also, so what if we would lose half of our elected officials? If they cannot control their own spending sufficiently well to pay their taxes, then they don’t deserve to be

handling and controlling taxpayer money. This kind of great divide, on what I consider to be common sense, is why this council and I did not see eye to eye. I hope the state senate continues to support this idea for a new state law. (I did get an inquiry from them when I introduced it.) I certainly do think it is a good idea and I would imagine most people also think this is a good idea. Please Walbridge council, reconsider. Dan Wilczynski Former mayor of Walbridge

Donations sought To the editor: For the past seven years, the Elmore Area Chamber of Commerce has sponsored the “Red, White, and Boom” Fireworks program at the end of June. The program involves a chicken barbecue, entertainment and a wonderful fireworks display after dark. This year, the program will be held on Saturday, June 29. The chicken barbecue will be at 4 p.m. at Woodmore High School, with entertainment following at Well Park, followed by the fireworks. The Chamber does not have large corporate sponsors for this program. All the fundraising comes through small businesses and organizations as well as donations from individuals. This year, the Chamber needs $8,000 to pay for the fireworks. They have $4,000 raised currently. Many local residents and their families have enjoyed the fireworks from their homes and from their cars by the side of the road, in addition to those who have come to Well Park to view them there.

If you have enjoyed the Elmore fireworks in the past, won’t you consider making a donation to help with the costs? There will soon be cans to collect donations in local businesses, or donations may also be mailed to the Elmore Area Chamber of Commerce, Box 179, Elmore, OH, 43416. Georgiana Huizenga Elmore

Pipeline’s false promise To the editor: State Rep. Bob Latta said that President Obama should approve the Keystone XL pipeline because it would decrease the price of oil in the United States. This is what his Tea Party bosses and the Koch brothers would have you believe. Oil prices in the Midwest will increase as refining is diverted from Midwest refineries to the Gulf of Mexico. Not only is the pipeline an environmental hazard, there is also no guarantee that this oil ends up in the U.S. The Gulf is a perfect location from which to ship oil overseas.

Turning things around requires assessment of priorities

1. What happened? In order to begin taking corrective action you must identify exactly what went awry. To do this, you need an awareness of what’s happening in your life. You will not be able to get back on the road unless you are looking out the windshield. 2. Why did it happen? You must understand the cause and effect relationship that brought you to your current position.

Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden

If you are on the wrong path, there’s no reason for you to keep suffering.

As much as you strive to stay on your desired path, there are times where you will veer off course, sometimes even going in the opposite direction. When you have lost your way you have to turn things around. Your initial step is to recognize and acknowledge that you are going in the wrong direction. You must take full responsibility for the road you are currently on. If you blame other people or circumstances, you will not get back on track. You chose the direction you are traveling. Turning things around involves reassessing and reordering your priorities. Taking for granted all you have to be thankful for is all too common. When this happens, losing your way is all too easy. Before you can begin turning things around, you must immediately stop doing whatever caused you to wind up where you don’t want to be. Nothing will get better until you do this. When you are going the wrong way, or have made a mistake, there are four important questions to answer.

The key to this is what you did and the role you played. Since the only thing you have control over is yourself, it’s a complete waste of time to fault others or make excuses. 3. What did you learn? There is more to be learned from mistakes and problems than when everything goes right. If you don’t learn anything, you are destined to constantly repeat the same errors. 4. What do you have to do to prevent it from happening again? Accurately answering this question is vital to avoiding the same mistakes that brought you off

course. People who don’t honestly answer this question are destined to find themselves stuck in an endless cycle of frustration. Blaming others for your circumstances puts you in this position. In order to turn things around, you need to determine your new direction. This decision is based on your goals. Without a clear destination, there is no way to alter your course. Formulating well defined goals is paramount. Let go of the past. Learn from your mistakes rather than fixating on failures. Life moves forward. Concentrate on taking the action today necessary for making tomorrow better. Nothing happens without action. Displace the bad habits that drove you off course, with good ones. Bad habits sabotage your success. As soon as you catch yourself behaving in an old pattern, change what you are doing. This is a repetitive process that takes time to become engrained. Persistent bad habits inhibit your turning things around. If you are on the wrong path, there’s no reason for you to keep suffering. You have the power to make changes. The longer you continue in the wrong direction, the more time it takes for your return trip. Act today to take the first step. Recognize the need for change and then formulate a plan. Believe in yourself. If you have the desire and determination, you can turn things around. Your mind believes whatever you tell it. If you believe you can, you are right. If you believe you can’t, you are also right. So tell your mind that you can and will turn things around.

Free dental services bring smiles to area kids faces

I’m going to put it under my pillow for the tooth fairy...

More than 110 area children recently left Owens Community College with brighter, healthier smiles courtesy of the college’s participation in the nationwide Give Kids A Smile Day. Give Kids A Smile Day, a national initiative by the American Dental Association, is dedicated to focusing attention on the epidemic of untreated oral disease among disadvantaged children. Held each February in conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month, Give Kids A Smile Day provides free oral health education, screening and treatment services to children from low-income families across the country. Owens’ Dental Hygiene program, in collaboration with the Toledo Dental Society, was among thousands of organizations that provided free dental services and educational outreach for children with limited or no access to care across the country. “It’s a lot of fun to help children who are in need of help,” said Owens dental hygiene student Nicole Buchanan, of Genoa, “Give Kids A Smile Day provides a great opportunity for students like myself to share what we have learned and to give back.” Buchanan plans to pursue a career as a dental hygienist after graduating from

Owens and obtaining her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. “I really appreciate all the volunteers who take the time to help others on this day,” said Trisha Truman, of Curtice, whose three children obtained services at Owens as part of the community outreach effort. “My family has attended Give Kids A Smile Day for the past several years. We are extremely thankful to everyone who makes this such a great event.” The dental experience at Owens left 5-year-old Lea Wauford of Northwood, “in the pink.”

“I lost my first tooth today,” said an excited Wauford. “I’m going to put it under my pillow for the tooth fairy. They gave me a pink princess toothbrush. Pink is my favorite color.” Services available as part of “Give Kids a Smile” included dental education and screening, X-rays, dental cleanings, limited restorations and dental sealants. In addition, students from Owens’ health program provided informational presentations for parents and children. Also assisting with the event were School of Health Sciences students within the academic areas of dental assisting, massage therapy technology and medical imaging technology. The college’s Dental Hygiene program offers a fully accredited, competency-based curriculum. Students receive classroom instruction as well as hands-on experience in the Dental Hygiene Clinic, while preparing to sit for the national, state or regional exam in dental hygiene. Owens’ program also offers dental services to area residents through its Dental Hygiene Clinic – a 20-chair clinic staffed by dental hygiene students and supervised by licensed dental professionals. Appointments are available during the fall and spring semesters for a $30 fee.

New ICU, Endoscopy Suite planned at Bay Park By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer Construction is expected to begin this quarter on a new Intensive Care Unit, as well as a new Endoscopy Suite at ProMedica Bay Park Hospital in Oregon. Like the existing unit, the new ICU will be located on the hospital’s second floor. “The unit will be built out on top of an existing roof,” according to Tom Borer, vice president of professional services at Bay Park. “The total space will be about 10,000 sq. ft., including renovation of some existing space and about 7,000 sq. ft. of new construction.” The unit will include eight patient rooms, which will be about 20 percent larger than current ICU rooms. One of the rooms will be designed to accommodate bariatric, or very obese patients. “It’s important that facilities adapt to accommo-

date a population of people who are getting heavier – from seating in waiting rooms, to the types of CAT scanners we buy, to the types of lift equipment we have to help us lift patients out of their beds for care,” Borer said. “We recognize it’s an issue that’s out there and we need to address it.” The larger rooms will not only offer enhanced patient comfort, but will also more easily accommodate equipment needed to provide care for the hospital’s sickest patients. “The patients that we are seeing in our ICU are sicker than we ever conceived of taking care of,” Borer said. “With sicker patients comes the need for more equipment and technology. Our rooms get very crowded when you bring in a ventilator, a dialysis machines and other support equipment, along with the patients themselves, the caregivers and family members.” The new rooms will be equipped with

ceiling-mounted patient lifts to assist hospital staff with moving patients. They will also include telestroke technology, which provides two-way visual communication between the ICU and neurologists and other experts in stroke treatment and care who are located at other ProMedica locations. “Telestroke offers patients access to specialists in a more timely manner,” Borer said. “This technology can also be used in other departments throughout the hospital, but it will be especially valuable in the ICU for treating stroke patients, because when it comes to strokes, time matters.” The new ICU’s design will also improve visualization between nurses and patient rooms. “There will be a direct line of sight from the nurse’s station into each and every patient room,” Borer said. “Unfortunately, today, we don’t have that.” The ICU project is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.

The new Endoscopy Suite will be constructed in currently unused “shell space” on the hospital’s Garden Level, space that was built intentionally for future growth and expansion, Borer said. “ When construction is complete, estimated at some time in the second quarter of this year, endoscopy services will be relocated from the surgery area to the new 4,600 sq. ft. suite. “The area where services are currently offered can get very busy and is sometimes crowded,” Borer said. “Because the unit will be all self-contained, it will offer improved privacy for patients and more efficiency for the staff and physicians as they move patients during the course of their procedures.” The suite will include 10 patient bays and space for three endoscopy rooms – one more than the hospital currently has. The new suite will serve patients who need colonoscopies, EDGs and bronchoscopies.

ProMedica to sponsor school food drive challenge As part of an overall campaign to end hunger in our region, ProMedica has announced its 2013 “Come to the Table” School Food Drive Challenge. To compete, ProMedica is asking area elementary, middle and high schools in area counties including Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky and Wood counties, to plan and implement a seven-day food drive to benefit a hunger relief agency in their community. The program is designed to increase the awareness of hunger as a significant challenge for families as well as a serious health issue in the region, while making a positive impact on the lives of those who are hungry. ProMedica will reward the school that collects the most pounds of donated, nonperishable food items with a $1,000 prize. “We are excited to offer this new challenge that will engage the creativity and energy of our area students and help them make a difference in their own community,” says Stephanie Cihon, corporate director of advocacy and community relations for ProMedica. For more information on how a school can participate in the food drive challenge, visit or email to receive your entry materials.

Heart Walk at new location The American Heart Association has announced that the 2013 Heart Walk, set for May 11 at 8 a.m., will be held at Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo. The decision to move the event from the University of Toledo’s Glass Bowl Stadium was based on desire to hold the event in a central location that would attract more companies and involve their employees in the Heart Walk. “Toledo is the fifth-least heart friendly city in the nation,” said Christine Colvin, Heart Walk Director for the American Heart Association, Northwest Ohio Division. “We would like to engage new companies in our wellness initiatives and give them incentives to help make Toledo a healthier place to live.” Companies, organizations and individuals are encouraged to sign up now to participate. All participating companies will benefit from wellness programs offered year-round at no cost. Call Christine Colvin at 419-740-6172 or visit for more information.

Capacity crowd watches Ohio State defeat Illinois By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer Oak Harbor was the place to be on February 1. That Friday night, the Ohio State wrestling team made a special appearance at Oak Harbor High School, competing against Illinois in a much anticipated event before a packed house of 2,100 fans. To the delight of the crowd, the Buckeyes, ranked fifth in the country, defeated No. 6 Illinois, 25-9, to improve to 10-2 and 4-2 in the Big Ten Conference. Needless to say, the match could go down as an historic moment in area history, perhaps ranking on par with President Obama’s visit to Kozy Korner’s Restaurant last summer. The match was special for area wrestling fans, but symbolic of something more. In a state filled with millions of rabid Buckeye fans, having the Ohio State wrestling team come to a village of 2,600 people was a once-in-a-lifetime event that local residents will remember for years to come. If only for a few hours, Buckeye Nation resided not in Columbus, but in Oak Harbor. The event was especially important because Ohio State featured two Oak Harbor alums, senior C.J. Magrum and redshirt sophomore Drew Stone. Having two former Rockets compete for the Buckeyes will continue to be a huge source of pride for the community. Magrum, a three-time state champion at OHHS, and Stone, a two-time state runner-up in high school, welcomed the trip home and competing in front of their friends and family. “It was awesome coming back,” Magrum said. “It was a great experience for our team and the fans. You could feel the energy in the gym and it helped us get the win. It was great seeing how many people came to support me (and) I really felt

The atmosphere with a crowded gym really made a difference.” Stone, whose parents, Michael and Kim, and brother, Josh, are all OSU graduates, was enthused about coming home and competing in his old gymnasium. “It was an awesome experience,” Stone said. “There were more people than I

imagined and the support they showed was great. It was something I’ll never forget. “It’s really cool to be a Buckeye just like my parents and brother. And wrestling just makes it even better. (Those guys) are my second family and we have a lot of pride for our school and our team.” With Jon Peters, a.k.a. “Big Nut,” sit-

ting front and center, the Buckeyes competed in front of a capacity crowd against the Illini and won seven of the 10 matches. Three of the winners included Logan Stieber, Hunter Stieber and Cam Tessari, all of whom are from Monroeville, located 35 from Oak Harbor. Magrum fell just short at 184 pounds, losing, as did Stone (133), who fell, 6-4, in his match. In the Big Ten, the Buckeyes sit in fourth place, one-and-a-half games behind Penn State and Minnesota, both of whom are 6-1, and two games behind Iowa (6-0). In the coming weeks, the Ohio State will finish up regular-season play before competing in the NWCA National Duals in Minneapolis and then the Big Ten Championships in March. “We have had a good season so far,” said Magrum. “The Big Ten season is a grind, so staying healthy is a big issue. We’re training to peak for the Big Ten Tournament and the NCAAs.” Oak Harbor head coach George Bergman, who helped coordinate the event with athletic director Drew Grahl and Ohio State coach Tom Ryan said the event was unique. “We couldn’t have put any more people in (the gym),” Bergman said. “It’s a once in a lifetime thing. I’m very confident that will never happen again in Ottawa County. We had two top 10 teams in the country. And what a treat it was (for the people). Ohio State definitely delivered. They performed very, very well. I’ve been there for some basketball games that had some good crowds, but I never saw anything quite like this. “It was very nice to have Drew and Cody back. They were very nice and appreciative and their parents were, too. People couldn’t get over how nice the Ohio State and Illinois wrestlers were. Drew Grahl and I, all we got were nice compliments. Everyone was gracious and complimentary.”

Howard becomes 28th Seminole to score 1,000 career points The Press Box Led by junior forward Natasha Howard’s double-double, the No. 20/21-ranked Florida State women’s basketball team picked up its ninth consecutive win over Clemson, 83-61, on Sunday at the Donald L. Tucker Center. Howard (Waite), who scored 19 points and grabbed 11 boards, became the 28th Seminole to score 1,000 career points when she drilled a free throw at the 11:01 mark in the first half. The Toledo native led five Seminoles in double figures as senior forward Chelsea Davis (19 points) and senior guards Alexa Deluzio (16), Leonor Rodriguez (16) and Morgan Toles (10) also scored 10 or more points for a Garnet and Gold squad that shot 55 percent after halftime. Florida State (18-4, 8-3 in the ACC) was in control the entire game and pulled away down the stretch. The victory marked the seventh time this season five Seminoles reached double figures in scoring. “It opens a lot especially for the shooters because every game we play they’re going to trap me or Chelsea and there is going be wide open shots for Leo or Alexa,” Howard said of the Noles’ balance on offense. “It’s a good thing to have everybody scoring double figures on this team. We each share the ball a lot.” Howard had her 23rd career double-

double and her second double-double game in a row bringing it to a total of eight so far this season.

Eagles wrestle at state duals

Genoa, Clay grapplers win their respective league titles By Harold Hamilton and J. Patrick Eaken The Genoa wrestling team defeated Eastwood (173½-164½) to win the Northern Buckeye Conference championship. It has been 10 years since Genoa has won a conference wrestling championship and this was only the second time in 47 years. It is the Comets fourth team title this season. The men in maroon also won the Northcoast Holiday Duals, Napoleon Gold Medal Duals, and NBC Duals. Genoa will wrestle next at the Division III Sectional Tournament on Friday and Saturday Feb 15 & 16th at Elmwood High School. Second-year coach Robert Bergman is quick to acknowledge his young men, saying “winning the NBC is a testament to our kids and especially our seniors who wouldn’t settle for anything less than their best. If you want to be more than mediocre you have to be willing to do more than what the average person is doing. They have shown that anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.” Coach Bergman goes on to say “a lot of credit for our success this season needs to go to our coaching staff. You are only as good as the people you surround yourself with and from top to bottom we have class individuals working with our kids. Brian Sheehy, Pat Moore, Bobby Parish, Dom D’Emilio and my father Joe Bergman add a wealth of knowledge and experience to our room and sacrifice a ton of time and effort to help our kids consistently improve.” He goes on to praise Tom Giles and Jeff Holcombe for the job they do with our youngsters at the middle school as well as Dom D’Emilio and Eric Gonzalez and their entire biddy staff who set a solid foundation for our wrestling program to build on. Genoa had 10 members placing. Helping the team with first place finishes in their weight classes were Max Reeder (132), Drew Keenan (145), Ryan Szymanski (160), and Jay Nino (220). Other conference first place individual winners from local schools by weight were Woodmore wrestler Evan Ulinski (106), Lake wrestler Thomas Schnittker (113), Eastwood wrestler Andrew Caris (126), Lake wrestler Chris Salaz (138)), Eastwood wrestlers Brad Radabaugh (152), Randy Caris (170), Kyle Patterson (182), and Adam Wolf (195) and Lake grappler Jacob Hankish (285). Lake finished third with 115 points and host Woodmore finished fourth with 111½ points.

Clay wins Three Rivers Clay’s wrestling program not only hosted the Three Rivers Athletic Conference wrestling championships, they also captured their second conference title. The Eagle grapplers used eight first place finishes to rack up 238 team points. Central Catholic finished a distant second with 185½ points followed by St. John’s Jesuit (97), Findlay (92), St. Francis de Sales (82), Whitmer (66½), Fremont Ross (64), and Lima Senior (11½). Repeat champions include Clay sophomore Richie Screptock (120), Central Catholic sophomore Nate Hagan (126), and Clay seniors Damon Dominique (152), Eddie Silva (195), and Jared Gray (220). Other Clay champions were junior Aaron Hennemen (106), junior Gavin Nelson (132), junior Nick Stencel (160), freshman Matt Stencel (182), Clay runners-up were junior Jared Davis (113), senior Brian Henneman (126), Finishing third from Clay was senior Charlie Amenta (170) and junior Antonio Zapata (285). Finishing fourth was sophomore Caleb Nelson (138), Fremont Ross junior Trey Grine kept his season record unblemished at 39-0 in the 145-pound final but he needed two overtime periods and an ultimate tie-breaker to defeat Central Catholic junior Alex Mossing (23-3) 4-3. Grine was named the tournament Wrestler of the Year. Clay is also headed to the eight-team Division I state duals tournament, seeded second facing off against fourth seeded Brecksview-Broadview Heights Saturday morning. A win would have sent them to the semifinal against the Lakewood St. Edward-Pickerington Central winner. The other four teams are Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller, Centerville, Marysville, and Massillon Perry. The Eagles got there by defeating Whitmer, 69-6, Sylvania Southview, 51-21, Perrysburg, 34-25, and Sidney, 54-13.

Gibsonburg grapplers win second straight league title By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer These are the good times for coach Justin Edgell and Gibsonburg’s wrestling program. A year removed from winning the Ohio Wrestling League title, the Golden Bears went 17-1 in dual meets this season – a school record for dual wins - and defended their OWL tournament title on Feb. 1 at Northwood. The Bears scored 158 points to beat runner-up Van Buren by 56 points. “We took 11 guys and all 11 placed in the top three,� Edgell said. “That was not necessarily what we expected. I made the comment a month ago that I didn’t anticipate having a lot of champions (at the OWL tournament). To win the league, we needed (several) guys to place third and fourth. We put five guys in the match for third and

fourth, and they all took third.� Gibsonburg had three league tourney champions, starting with freshman Marcus Kreais at 170 pounds. “He’s a really hard worker,� Edgell said. “There’s not much else I can say about him. The kid busts his butt every single day. Mondays are kind of our walk-through days, just to get a light sweat going, and he’s just full-go every day. I’ve seen him since seventh grade and his body has transformed. He’s gotten taller and thinner and stronger and faster. He’s had to work for everything he’s gotten.� Junior Jacob Auld, the OWL champion at 220 pounds last season, won the 182pound title this year. “We moved our lineup around last year to get our best chance of winning,� Edgell said. “Jacob bumped up to 220 and performed well. This year he was just coming off a concussion and did excellent. He

pinned his guy in the finals in a minute. He didn’t look like he lost anything after being out a week and a half to two weeks.� Senior Nick Metcalf became a twotime league champ at 195 pounds, pinning his opening-round opponent in 16 seconds. Metcalf placed sixth at districts last season. “Nick’s second opponent was the runner-up at the Van Buren Invitational and we anticipated an even match,� Edgell said. “He was up 7-1 after one period and pinned him in the second period. His goal at the top of his goal sheet is to compete at the state tournament, as it should be. He went in there looking to do his job and get out and get ready for sectionals, districts and state.� Taking second for the Bears at the OWL tourney were sophomores Troy Ickes (138 pounds), A.J. Blausey (145) and Dan Henline (160). Senior Gage Collins placed third

at 113 and was joined by freshman Damien Schmeltz (120), senior Austin Webb (126) and freshmen Griffin Geary (132) and Zach Kaetzel (152). “We had four freshmen in our lineup and they all placed top three in the league,� Edgell said. “The biggest surprise was at 152. Zach missed nearly the entire season with a broken arm, and this was only his second tournament back. He was unseeded and went 3-1 to earn third place.� Gibsonburg will compete at the Division III sectional tournament on Feb. 15-16 at Elmwood. The Bears took fourth last year behind Genoa, Elmwood and Woodmore. “We would like to get five or six guys to districts, which is pretty tough,� Edgell said. “Our sectional is pretty improved over the last few years. Genoa is tough and Woodmore is having a good year. There is a lot of talent; not a lot of great teams, just a lot of individual talent.�

Ulinski setting new standard By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer It’s a Tuesday night and the sectional wrestling tournament is still 10 days away. Woodmore junior Evan Ulinski is coming off his third straight league championship, winning the Northern Buckeye Conference title at 106 pounds in his home gymnasium. The only thing he is now focused on is taking that first step toward improving on last year’s fourth-place finish at the Division III state tournament. “I’m practicing hard,� said Ulinski, a two-time state qualifier who was fourth at 106 last year. “I’m making sure I work to get in shape for state. I try and ramp it up towards the end of the year, just go harder. Maybe do some extra stuff myself at home, like run on the treadmill and lift weights. I’m in pretty good shape.� Ulinski will take a 39-2 record into next Friday and Saturday’s sectional tournament at Elmwood. He has competed mostly at 113 and 120 pounds this season and has collected an astonishing 31 pins. The school record is 36 in one season. “I’m strong and very good on top,� Ulinski said of his wrestling style. “One of my strong suits has been getting on top and turning guys. My dad’s (Steve) been my coach almost all my life, so I have to give him credit. My dad and coach (Dane) Bonnigson just implement practice in a tough, grinding way and you just get through it.� Bonnigson, whose team took third at the NBC tournament, called Ulinski a “pretty well rounded� competitor on the mat. “He’s just technically sound,� Bonnigson said. “He’s very knowledgeable about wrestling. He’s been wrestling his whole life. Obviously he’s talented, but he’s also a hard worker and a very enjoyable kid to be around. He’s a good leader and he helps coach some of the other kids if we have an open chair during a tournament.�

The 5-foot-5 Ulinski, who has a 4.0 GPA, has won 123 of his 133 matches in high school. He won’t match his brother, Jan’s, four appearances at the state tournament, but he could get close. Jan Ulinski, who wrestled at Eastwood and placed seventh at 119 pounds at the Division II state tournament, is now wrestling at the University of Findlay. “He set the standard,� Evan said, “but I didn’t want to just be a four-time state qualifier. I was looking to place all four years and get a state championship.� Evan won the Suburban Lakes League title at 103 pounds two years ago, then won the inaugural 106-pound NBC title last season. He said he wants to drop down from 113 to 106 for the postseason because it gives him a better chance of getting on the top step on the podium in Columbus in early March. “That’s just where I think I have the best chance to win a state championship,� Ulinski said. “I think I’ll be bigger and stronger than the rest of the (106-pound) guys down there. I’ve had a little bit of a letdown with the two losses. My goal at the beginning of the season was to not lose a match and win state. I didn’t complete one goal, so hopefully the two losses helped me learn.� Wrestling isn’t even Ulinski’s favorite sport. He was also a cornerback and wide receiver on the Wildcats’ football team, and he plays second base and shortstop on the baseball team. “We would like him to peak at the state tournament,� the coach said. “The goal obviously is to get a championship. He just has to wrestle well down the stretch. He has the ability and the drive for it, but he’s going to have to have a series of good tournaments down the stretch.� Ulinski said competing at the previous two state tournaments should give him an edge heading into next week. “I have to make it happen,� he said. “I have to get to state, but first comes sectionals and districts.�

Oak Harbor

Backcourt duo helping Rockets turn things around By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer

said. “It’s very important for us. I want people to look back and remember us.� Boers, who was coming off the bench at the beginning of the season, has moved into the starting lineup in part because of her three-point shooting. This season, Boers set the school record for three-pointers in a season and a career. Currently, she’s tied with Gezo for the team lead in points (199), averaging 13.3 per contest. What’s helped Boers the most this season is the fact that she’s diversified her game, mixing in penetration with her outside shooting. “I am more confident with my driving abilities than I was at the beginning of the season,� said Boers, a three-year letter winner. “And taking the ball to the basket opens up my three-point shot, making me a more versatile player on the court.� For the third straight season, Carpenter is the starting point guard. Carpenter runs the offense with fluidity while providing scoring when needed. Carpenter has helped Cecil get acclimated to playing at the varsity level. Carpenter knows that Cecil’s play will greatly influence the success of the team this year,

The coaches remind us every day, during every practice and every game that we were picked sixth.


What a difference a year makes. Just last season, the Oak Harbor Rockets struggled to a 7-14 finish and finished seventh in the Sandusky Bay Conference. This season, things are different. Led by the senior trio of Abbie Gezo, Maria Boers and Makayla Carpenter and freshman Andrea Cecil, Oak Harbor is 11-7 overall while going 6-6 in the SBC, good for fourth place in the league. Gezo, who earned honorable mention status in the league last season, was expected to take the next step, which she has, averaging 13.3 points and six rebounds, both tops on the team. And Cecil, despite this being her first year in high school, was highly touted and expected by many to contribute greatly to the club, which she has. However, it’s been the backcourt duo of Carpenter and Boers that have been just as instrumental to the Rockets’ success. With Gezo providing a consistent lowpost presence and Cecil’s versatility helping her to average 10.1 points and five rebounds, Carpenter has managed the offense as the point guard and Boers has provided an outside shooting threat that helps Oak Harbor stretch the floor. Oak Harbor also has a man with a proven track record at the helm in Tom Kontak. Kontak, who took over after former coach Brad Hemminger retired after being a part of the program for nearly two decades, is well known to the area, having been Genoa’s coach from 2004-10. During his time as the Comets’ top man, he compiled a 91-44 record, built one of the area’s top programs and won two Suburban Lakes League titles. Carpenter, who is a four-year letter winner, notes that part of the team’s motivation for playing so hard lies with the fact that the Rockets were picked to finish sixth in the SBC before the season began. “The coaches remind us every day, during every practice and every game that we were picked sixth,� she said. “It’s definitely a little disheartening when you come into a season with four returning starters and you’re still picked sixth. It’s like others in the league take for granted your abilities, so that definitely fuels the fire to want to prove them wrong.� This season hasn’t come without setbacks, however. Because of an injury in midseason to forward Nikki Weis, not to mention the fact that Allison Dunn, a second team All-SBC selection last season, graduated, the Rockets have struggled with depth. The starting lineup that features Carpenter and Boers in the backcourt with Amanda Hetrick at small forward, Cecil at

power forward and Gezo at center while senior Erin Bryant and Athena Eli, another promising freshman, have helped to provide production off the bench. Boers, like Carpenter, Gezo and Bryant, is motivated to help turn things around for the program and leave behind the beginning of a legacy. Along with Cecil and Eli, Oak Harbor has an eighth grade team that has lost just twice in the last two seasons, making the future looking bright for a program that had back-to-back 20-0 seasons in 2003 and ‘04. “I’m very proud of how we are doing so far and I hope we can continue this,� Boers

not to mention the fact that Cecil will likely be the primary ball handler when Carpenter is gone next season. “I’ve always had close friendships with people, and this year isn’t any different. I’m friends with everyone on the team, some closer than others,� Carpenter said. “Andrea and I are really good friends — we do everything together. Maria and I are good friends and Abbie and I have known each other since grade school and have always played with each other on teams. I think that transfers into the game and that’s why we work together so well. And I’m also pretty close with some of the JV girls. “When I was a freshman, I really loved having the seniors there to talk to me and I was really good friends with them and I loved being able to have friendships with them,� Carpenter continued. Carpenter notes that it was former players Abby Zurvalec, Kayla Diefenthaler and Lauren Adams who helped guide her when she was younger. “I hope I am doing that for the younger kids this year and trying to give a little more advice or reassurance to them,� Carpenter said.

It is difficult to be a gorgeous girl, isn't it? Hi, I'm Alaina and I came to the shelter when my previous owner surrendered me when they could no longer take care of me. I love peace and quiet where I am the only one in the spot light. While I love my chin scratched and gentle pats on the head, which I reward with kitty kisses, just please don't pick me up or hold me too much. I spent so much time grooming to look this way, I would hate to have to do it again! But by all means, keep petting me until I tell you to stop. If you think you can treat me like the queen that I think I am, then stop out and say h e l l o a n d r e m e m b e r, g i r l s like me don't come around very often!
