Birds flock here, so do the birders By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Thousands of birding enthusiasts will flock to Northwest Ohio on May 3-12 for the fourth annual The Biggest Week in American Birding event. The three previous Biggest Week events drew more people than the one before it, and this year’s festival will draw birders not only nationally but from such countries as Panama, Ecuador, Guatemala, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan and China. Kim Kaufman, executive director of the Black Swamp Bird Observatory in Oak Harbor, said that’s no accident. “We have put tremendous effort into marketing this area and using a lot of partnerships, like Birds and Bloom magazine, BirdWatching magazine, Bird Watcher’s Digest and Audubon Magazine,” she said. “Last year, we were featured in Spirit Magazine, which is the in-flight magazine for Southwest Airlines. “Nationally and internationally, this festival is becoming one of the top birding festivals in the country. Certainly, word of mouth is a component, but out (BSBO) marketing effort has been reaching a lot of people. We’re including a strong tourism component into our mission.” Kaufman said this year’s theme is “Birding Is For Everyone,” and the event will again include birding workshops and bus trips to various birding locations in Ohio and Michigan. “We had just under 64,000 people here between the end of April and the middle of May last year,” Kaufman said. “I expect that number to continue to increase every year, because it has been. Our marketing efforts are reaching more and more people. “Black Swamp added the new website ( this year. We wanted something fresh and new. We’re adding new events and activities that outgrew the reach of the old website. This allows the new website to be treated almost like a blog, where we can add content in a much more fluid way.” The festival headquarters will be Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center,

ODOT speaks

Official schedule set for closing of High Level Bridge By John Szozda Press General Manager

After months of speculation, the Ohio Department of Transportation has released its official construction and closure schedule for the $28.7 million renovation of The Anthony Wayne Bridge, also knows as Toledo High Level Bridge. Theresa Pollick, ODOT spokesperson, and engineers Dave Geckle and Mike Lopez announced the schedule to an estimated crowd of 60 concerned citizens who gathered Thursday at the East Toledo Center at a meeting sponsored by the East Toledo Club. Pollick said bridge traffic will be reduced to one lane each way starting later this spring or early summer continuing until sometime between January and March

of 2014. The bridge will then be closed to all traffic until late 2015. According to a 2010 traffic count study by the Toledo Metropolitan Council of Governments an estimated 28,900 vehicles use the bridge every day. Most of the work to be done this year will be under the bridge with workers placing safety platforms. Next year, the contractor, E.S. Wagner of Oregon, will begin tearing off the deck and the approaches to the bridge. Both approaches will be removed and completely rebuilt with additional piers and two trusses instead of the one large truss in current use at each end. This change is precipitated by what engineers have learned studying the collapse in 2007 of the I-35W Mississippi River Bridge in

Minneapolis. That disaster plunged a dozen cars into the river, killed 13 and injured more than 140. In addition to reengineering the approaches, workers will replace the deck, sidewalks, railings, fencing and the expansion joints. After the bridge reopens, it will be repainted the familiar blue that has graced the skyline of Toledo since it opened in 1931. The painting will also necessitate lane restrictions. ODOT engineers spent three years, from 2009 to 2012, testing and inspecting various bridge components and have deemed the cables and suspension wires are still in good condition so they will not be replaced, Pollick said. Most of the design changes to make the bridge safer will occur under it. In the end, Pollick said the bridge will look much as it

Bridge Continued from front page does today and she asks for your patience. ”It’s not like we can go to Walmart and get a new light fixture. They have to be made… Because of the age of this bridge, it requires experts and engineers…This is a piece of history so it takes time to make sure we do it right.” (For a related story about the history of the bridge see page 11). Pollick said there have been major renovations of the bridge in 1960-61, the early 80s and 1996-97, but this is the most extensive and requires the longest closing. The news didn’t set well with many in the crowd. However, one woman, Diana Cheek, has lived 20-feet from the bridge for 41 years and she is glad to see the renovation. She knows the bridge well. Some years ago, she successfully lobbied ODOT to get fencing installed on the declines after having seven windows broken because of objects thrown from motorists. She asked why the bridge was neglected for so long while the state found funds to build the Veterans Glass City Skyway and the City of Toledo renovated the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge. “It’s rotten underneath. We have to pick up chunks of concrete before we can mow our lawn. I’m glad we’re going to do this.” Others in the crowd were concerned about fire protection should support be needed from across the river and how much more difficult it will become crossing the river given the numerous, blocked railroad crossings and the new angle parking on Main Street which has reduced traffic to one lane each way. Eulan Tucker, an Oregon resident and businessman, wanted to know if ODOT was coordinating its efforts with the City of Toledo to make sure traffic wasn’t impeded at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge. Pollick said ODOT has had conversations with the city and she doesn’t believe any work is planned for that bridge. That may not be the case for the Craig Bridge, however. The official detour will take motorists down Oak, Fassett, Miami, I-75, The Anthony Wayne Trail, Monroe Street and Summit. Don’t bother. Most of us will find our way via I-280 over the Veterans Glass City Skyway or down Main to Cherry via the MLK Bridge.

Birders Continued from front page but there will be a lot going on at BSBO, Kaufman said. “Bus trips are taking people into four counties – Lucas, Ottawa, Erie and Sandusky,” she said. “We’re also running some trips into Michigan this year, to Point Mouillee State Game Area in Monroe County. All of our bus trips leave out of Maumee Bay and go out to birding areas. Point Mouillee has always been really good for shorebirds and waterfowl. It’s an interesting place and not that far to take people.” The goal of each The Biggest Week festival is to raise awareness and appreciation for birds and habitat conservation. In 2012, The Biggest Week helped raise more than $25,000 for local bird research, education and conservation in Northwest Ohio. The festival also raised funds to purchase

Former athletic trainer arraigned By Melissa Burden Special to The Press A former athletic trainer at Clay High School was arraigned in Oregon Municipal Court for allegedly having sexual relations with two underage male students in the last 18 months. Melinda Rober, 35, was arraigned on Monday, April 22, and charged with two counts of sexual battery. Rober, who waived her right to a preliminary examination, will be bound over to the Lucas County Common Pleas Court for a grand jury hearing. She was ordered to not have contact with the students. Oregon School Board President P.J. Kapfhammer said the district took immediate action when the first alleged victim came forward last week. “I was first approached last week about this,” Kapfhammer said. “The young man was just talking about a lot of things and he mentioned the trainer’s name a few times in the conversation without saying a whole lot. I just felt something was not right.” Kapfhammer said he spoke to the student’s father and asked him to find out if something had happened. “Within a half an hour, the young man was back, asking if he was in trouble,” Kap-

fhammer said. “I told him he was not in trouble, that he was a victim.” Kapfhammer said he notified the administration and the Oregon Police Department immediately. “The kid came to me. I did the right thing,” he said. “I went to the police with him because he trusted me. I made sure he knew he was a victim and not in trouble. He is a good kid and I just wanted him to know that this was not his fault.” A second alleged victim has also come forward, according to Kapfhammer. He said he has spoken to four to five more students who have “asked for help.” “From my understanding, this has been going on at least two years, but probably longer than that,” Kapfhammer said. “I have known these kids since they were little. I met with the second victim as well. He was scared his mom and dad would be upset. He was scared to tell them. I came to his home that night and told his parents for him. It was a very tough evening.” Kapfhammer said there had been rumors concerning Rober for some time. “But there was nothing even close to this,” he said. “It looks like a lot of boys knew. Some of the victims did not tell anyone, period. We are just beginning to understand some of the things that went on.

National Train Day

We immediately made sure the kids were safe and taken care of. I just feel horrible. As a district, we want to protect the kids and somewhere along the line we did not. These are big, strong young men, but, when they were telling the police what happened, there were tears welling up in their eyes. This has just been horrible.” Rober turned herself into police on Friday, April 19. Her attorney, Steve Hartman, said his client is cooperating. “She fully cooperated in the investigation, and will continue to do so,” Hartman said. Oregon Detective Sergeant Kelly Thibert said additional victims have not come forward. “The investigation is still on-going,” Thibert said. Rober served as Clay’s athletic trainer for 10 years. She was employed by ProMedica. Tedra J. White, ProMedica’s director of media relations and public affairs, said Rober is no longer an employee. “We are cooperating fully with local authorities,” White said. “Our athletic training program has an outstanding history and reputation and we in no way were aware of or condone any inappropriate behavior.”

Clay Twp. neighbors’ feud heads back to court - again By Larry Limpf News Editor A Clay Township resident has filed a lawsuit in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court against the township police chief and a patrol officer, alleging malicious prosecution. The lawsuit, filed by Anthony Simon, of N. Genoa-Clay Center Road, also names Simon’s neighbors, Wayne and Dorothy Fondessy, as defendants. According to the lawsuit and court records, Chief Terry Mitchell initiated a criminal complaint around Sept. 19, 2011

against Simon, charging him in Ottawa County Municipal Court with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. The charges stemmed from a property disagreement Simon has had with the Fondessy’s, who live next door to him, but were dismissed in April 2012. In his lawsuit, Simon contends Chief Mitchell’s allegations “had no reasonable basis and lacked probable cause.” Patrol officer Jamie Blausey is also named as a defendant in the Simon lawsuit. Statements made by the Fondessys to Blausey and Chief Mitchell resulted in the charges being filed against Simon but

were ‘… untrue or misleading and had no reasonable basis or underlying cause for a criminal complaint,” the lawsuit says. The lawsuit contends Chief Mitchell contacted Simon’s attorney around June 28, 2011 – about when the Fondessy’s statements were taken by police – and threatened criminal action against Simon if he didn’t correct a drainage issue on his property. “…Mitchell abused the legal process by using it for ulterior motive or purpose of coercing Simon to comply with civil issues being raised by his neighbors… Wayne and Dorothy Fondessy,” the lawsuit says. “Such purpose was not legitimate,

regular, or legal in the use of the criminal justice system.” The suit asks for a jury trial and compensatory and punitive damages of at least $25,000 for each count from each defendant as well as court costs and attorney fees. The case has been assigned to Judge Bruce Winters. Shortly after Chief Mitchell filed the complaint against Simon in municipal court, Dorothy Fondessy filed a petition in common pleas court requesting a civil protection order against Simon. In November 2011, the court issued a protection order which is scheduled to expire in October 2016. Simon has appealed the ruling and the case is pending in the Sixth District Court of Appeals, a spokesperson for the court said. On the advice of his attorney, Simon last week declined to discuss either case. Gary Kapp, the township’s former zoning inspector, inspected Simon’s property on July 23, 2011 and in a letter dated Aug. 5 wrote “…there does not appear to be a zoning violation with the drainpipe for your sump pump. However, like I suggested, it would be wise to check with the Ohio Revised Code regarding shedding water on adjoining properties. This would be in your best interest to check those guidelines.” An email and phone message left with Chief Mitchell for comment was not returned. The Fondessys could not be reached for comment.

APRIL 29, 2013

Vicars declines head football coach position at Clay Oregon School Board President P.J. Kapfhammer called Mike Vicars the â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfect hireâ&#x20AC;? to lead Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football program for the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;10-15 years.â&#x20AC;? School administrators announced in January that Vicars would be Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next head football coach. But Vicars never was actually hired by the Oregon School District. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was going to be the assistant principal at Fassett Junior High and he would have also served as the AD (athletic director) there,â&#x20AC;? Kapfhammer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the perfect hire. The only problem was, he never was hired.â&#x20AC;? Kapfhammer said he had signed the contract, then sent it to Vicars, but the school board never received a signed document back from Vicars. On April 19, Vicars informed Superintendent Dr. Mike Zalar he was resigning the $90,000 position to work for the Pike-DeltaYork school system, where he led the Panthers to the Division IV state semifinals in 2003. Vicars, Kapfhammer said, had applied for an opening as a middle school principal there. Currently, Delta High School, where Vicars coached for eight years, does not have a head football coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bent over backwards to get him,â&#x20AC;? Kapfhammer reflected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really wanted him. At the time I thought he was just the greatest hire. I wondered to myself how we even got him. I could not wait to see him in action. Our administration courted him for weeks. The board immediately approved him. I signed his contract and sent it to him, and he never sent it back. He was never officially hired.â&#x20AC;? As shocked as the Clay football community was to learn they were losing a respected coach with an impressive resume, rumors began surfacing concerning the reason Vicars bailed on the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; football program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He told us he wanted to go back to Delta,â&#x20AC;? Kapfhammer said. He debunked allegations Vicars left because Kapfhammer did not want to hire two assistant coaches that Vicars had wanted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To say that he left because I supposedly would not allow him to have the two assistant coaches he wanted is crazy. No one leaves a $90,000-a-year job because of that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody wanted him more than me,â&#x20AC;? Kapfhammer added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted the kids to have a winning team. I was uber excited. I would have done anything to keep him.


I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if I have a job anywhere right now, let alone Delta at this point. When this decision began to weigh on me, I never even thought of other jobs.


By Melissa Burden and Mark Griffin

You can point fingers at me when things go wrong. I am used to it. This is absolutely not one of those times. I would have done anything to keep that guy.â&#x20AC;? Vicars, who declined a phone interview with The Press, said via email there were issues with the contract dates. He said he was waiting for an extended-day contract before he signed. Vicars said the timing was just a coincidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As that process was proceeding, I got really busy with football things and simply forgot,â&#x20AC;? Vicars said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was never any intent to not sign it and turn it back in. It was just coincidence that it happened that way.â&#x20AC;? Looking for work Vicars said he does not know if he has a job at any school at this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all were working hard towards the betterment of the program,â&#x20AC;? Vicars said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was even coming to 6:30 a.m. workouts three times a week with the kids. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even apply for a position at Delta until last Friday, after I spoke with Zalar. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if I have a job anywhere right now, let alone Delta at this point. When this decision began to weigh on me, I never even thought of other jobs. I was trying to make

it best for all involved. That meant I had to come to terms with it so Oregon City Schools could move forward.â&#x20AC;? Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head football coaching position opened up when Nate Ruple, a former assistant there under Vicars, resigned after his fifth season as the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach. In a combined statement, Zalar and Vicars refuted the rumor that Kapfhammer had anything to do with Vicarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My decision to resign was based solely on my personal assessment of the different skill sets required to lead a big-school program,â&#x20AC;? Vicars stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My experience has always been with smaller schools. I came to the realization that I was neither comfortable nor confident that I could make the transition to the big school at this stage of my career. I only met Mr. Kapfhammer once or twice, and we never had any discussion about potential assistant coaches.â&#x20AC;? Zalar added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have had numerous conversations with Mr. Kapfhammer and he was always positive about Mr. Vicars. Mr. Kapfhammer expressed to me that he believed coach Vicars would be good for the kids and lead the program back to prominence.â&#x20AC;? Clay sophomore Aaron Seymour, who played running back and safety for the Ea-

gles last season, said he was disappointed he would not be able to play for Vicars for the next two years. Seymour said Vicars sent a group text to all of the football players last Friday, telling them he would not be their next head coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have a reason,â&#x20AC;? Seymour said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to work out this year, guys. I wish you the best of luck. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the head coach anymore.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I was kind of surprised. Nobody knew why he did it. Everybody feels a little let down, because they got to know Vicars. He talked to a lot of us individually. I was going to set up an individual meeting with him. I run track, so I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t [meet right away]. I wish he would have stuck around.â&#x20AC;? Based on Vicarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; track record as a head coach, Clay appeared to have hit the proverbial jackpot. Vicars had a 62-29 record in eight seasons at Delta and led the Panthers to the Division IV state semifinals in 2003. The Panthers won three Northwest Ohio Athletic League titles and made the state playoffs six times. Genoa had never qualified for the state playoffs until Vicars was hired there in 2007. In five seasons, he led the Comets to a 56-7 record and five playoff appearances â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they reached the D-IV state semifinals in 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and led them to their first Suburban Lakes League title since 1994. Genoa also won 48 straight regular-season games under Vicars, who resigned following the 2011 season. He remained on the staff as an assistant coach under new head coach Tim Spiess, who was Vicarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defensive coordinator the previous five seasons. Last fall, with Vicars as the Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; assistant head coach/offensive coordinator, Genoa went 10-0 and averaged more than 52 points a game during the regular season. The Comets won the Northern Buckeye Conference title and were ranked No. 6 in final Associated Press D-IV state poll. The Comets finished 11-1 after losing in the second round of the state playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as attention to detail and game planning, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never worked with a better coach,â&#x20AC;? said Spiess, who has known Vicars since 1971. Spiess indicated he believes Vicars changed his mind about the Clay job because he simply misses living back in the small towns of Liberty Center, his hometown, and Delta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last spring,â&#x20AC;? Spiess said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike mentioned, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you miss being back home?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That desire, at least on the surface, now leaves Clay looking for another head coach.

City of Oregon to focus on hiring locals for seasonal help By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Mayor Mike Seferian plans to more aggressively recruit city residents for seasonal help after members of council raised questions about hiring non-residents. Seferian received council approval to hire several residents and a couple of nonresidents for seasonal help at a council meeting on Monday. Among those hired was Nick Kaiser, of Lambertville, Michigan, as a maintenance worker in the water treatment plant for $8 per hour. Kaiser last summer had worked in the recreation department. Councilman Terry Reeves wanted to know how the city finds people to hire for seasonal help. Seferian said Kaiser had experience and knew about the opening at the water treatment plant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a very good employee, and very successful in the work he performed, and was punctual.â&#x20AC;? The city has had problems with others who were hired, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up for work, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So knowing the history of this particular individual, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it took place,â&#x20AC;? said Seferian. Reeves said he would like the city to look for people from the Oregon area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only concern I have,â&#x20AC;? said Reeves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was wondering how we go about finding an employee.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past, especially in the cemeteries, we have hired people, and there were problems with some of them showing up to work,â&#x20AC;? said Seferian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some situations like that in grass cutting and maintenance work. So they try to find someone who has proven to work out. And that was the case in this instance.â&#x20AC;? He also said the positions draw fewer

candidates because the wage offered by the city is not very competitive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at our pay scale compared to some other things that are out there that are competing with this kind of employment, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually having a hard time filling the positions at the cemeteries. There were people there at one time who were not Oregon residents. We had hired Oregon residents, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up to work,â&#x20AC;? said Seferian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we go to the high schools, put something out that says weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need seasonal help and possibly getting our youth or young adults from the City of Oregon?â&#x20AC;? asked Reeves. Public Service Director Paul Roman said an effort is made to find local residents for the positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do tell my superintendents that we want local kids and people from the City of Oregon. But you can get an application at any time throughout the year. Usually we take applications around January and February. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they particularly advertise. When we do get applications, I do promote city kids. In this case, when it did come across my desk, I had the same question â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michigan? I thought, `Are there any other kids?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Roman said he had asked Joe Wasserman, head of the Recreation Department, about Kaiser after he had expressed an interest in the job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Wasserman] said he was a good kid, a very good worker,â&#x20AC;? said Roman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you know you have someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good worker, why not give him a job. But I do agree with you, Mr. Reeves. We do try to look for more City of Oregon kids first. But at the same time, we go through an interview process. You just look for good workers to see what you can find. We are conscientious to hire city kids.â&#x20AC;? Administrator Mike Beazley said there

are times when kids hired from outside the city are actually related to a city resident who suggested they apply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have some connection with the community. That is usually how they end up here. Our department heads try to hire the local kids,â&#x20AC;? said Beazley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not against Mr. Kaiser,â&#x20AC;? said Reeves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would just like to see local people in these positions, if at all possible. If there is some way, if we know this position will come up next year, we can send something out to the schools to maybe try and take applications, get something out there, so we can hire our local youth.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will make that a point to the departmental heads,â&#x20AC;? said Seferian, so that they can get in touch with the schools if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way they can post things. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll certainly do that.â&#x20AC;? Besides Kaiser, council approved the following people for seasonal help: â&#x20AC;˘ Robert Clements, Toledo, Street Division crew; â&#x20AC;˘ Alexis Donnelly, Oregon, Street Division crew; â&#x20AC;˘ Erika Parker, Oregon, Street Division crew; â&#x20AC;˘ Jacob Zunk, Oregon, Fire Department.

Oregon OK’s special use permit for storage facility By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

We can achieve that in many different ways, one being plantings, or a fence would be appropriate...

Oregon City Council on Monday approved a Special Use Exception permit to expand a self-storage facility onto the rear of a neighboring parcel on the property at 3310 Dustin Road. Council approved the permit in a C4 district. Jim Gilmore, commissioner of building and zoning, said the property required a Special use Exception because it was not zoned correctly. The property with storage units is zoned C-2, and the lot for expansion of the storage units is zoned C4. The applicant is Jerome R. Parker, attorney for contract vendee Henry Ford Health System, Inc. “The property is on the south side of Dustin, directly in back of the Henry Ford facility,” said Gilmore. “The applicant has asked for the Special Use Permit to expand the storage facility.” The Oregon Plan Commission voted 40 following a public hearing on March 19 to recommend approval, dependent on certain conditions, such as the submission of a full site plan showing drainage and landscaping, and providing access to the fire department through the Henry Ford facility, said Gilmore. Parker agreed to submit the site plan after council approved the measure. Parker said he has no problem complying with all the conditions.

Council approved an amendment requested by Councilman Jerry Peach that restricts outdoor storage. Peach had noted that the plan commission had wanted reassurances that the project would expand the storage units, but would not be used for outdoor storage of boats, campers, and other vehicles. “The additional condition I would like council to adopt states that no storage outside buildings shall be permitted except as permitted by city regulations regarding containers for garbage in a C-4 business district,” said Peach. Council member Sandy Bihn asked if

there would be any screening or buffering requirements on the lot line or behind the Henry Ford facility between the two lots. Gilmore said a 10 foot buffer is required on the south side of the parcel. “We can achieve that in many different ways, one being plantings, or a fence would be appropriate,” he said. “So will the storage facility with this buffer be visible from Dustin behind the Henry Ford complex?” asked Bihn. “Yes, it will be visible from Dustin,” said Gilmore. “I’m questioning whether we have a nice facility with a nice layout. Storage facilities are arguably of lesser value and don’t produce jobs. I’m trying to make sure that Dustin is as attractive as can be,” said Bihn. Councilman Mike Sheehy also had concerns that the storage facility expansion would be visible from a nearby residential area. Administrator Mike Beazley said there are instances “where we don’t see as storage as the highest and best use.” “With the conditions on it, we felt like there’s really not a lot of places to go. It’s hard to make something out of the land behind this development. When you drive down the street, you can already see the storage back there. It’s not going to be dramatically visible,” said Beazley. “When they put this forward, are they going to extend the same style of buildings west, and how close can they go to the lot line?” asked Bihn.

Seferian said they would have to comply with the building code. “Once again, I’m sure they’re going to organize the buildings into utilizing the best bang for the buck, whether they’re putting them up parallel or perpendicular to the existing ones there. I’m going to guess it’s going to be a formula where they will go to their developer to make the best use out of the land that’s there with the restrictions on side yard and back yard setbacks. Then it becomes what the zoning code allows,” said Seferian. Sheehy said he wanted to make sure that the amendment made it clear that there would be no outside storage of vehicles. “I’m not opposed to this and plan to vote for it,” said Sheehy. “But appreciate that we’re trying all the time to make things look better. We take a lot of pride in that corridor, and we still have great hope for it.” “I don’t mean to disagree, but we don’t see this as violating the integrity of the Dustin Road corridor because it’s a remnant and a useless piece, unless it gets used for something to the side of it,” said Parker. “We thought, quite frankly, it was an unobnoxious use. There’s not a lot of traffic generated by it, not a lot of safety concerns about it. It’s a pretty safe, dormant, quiet use. Very little of it will be seen off Dustin and whatever the landscaping requirements are - site plan, access - we will comply with it. There will be no outside storage of anything, other than refuse or debris containers.”

Environmental class Experts involved in local, state and federal efforts to fight environmental crimes will share their knowledge with law enforcement, public officials, community leaders and public defenders at a free workshop sponsored by Keep Ohio Beautiful (KOB), a state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful May 3, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency, Ottawa County Courthouse, 315 Madison St., Port Clinton. Communities are increasingly grappling with the effects of environmental crimes. “The source of most litter in our three-county district of Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties is personal litter and /or illegal dumping of garbage,” said Amy Drummer, assistant director of the OSS Solid Waste District. “We have litter crews, Adopt-A-Road groups and a number of beach and park cleanups every year, but we are continually striving to stop this growing problem at the source. Through education and awareness of our valuable natural resources we hope to send a positive message about the importance of recycling and litter prevention in our area,” A registration form can be downloaded at or call 330-338-8328. Funding for the workshop is provided by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Registered sanitarians and sanitarians in training can receive five CEUs.

PI levy has helped schools cut costs By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Oregon school board President P.J. Kapfhammer is hopeful that voters will renew a 2-mill permanent improvement levy on the May 7 ballot. Kapfhammer has been making the rounds seeking support for the levy, most recently at Oregon City Council, which passed a resolution in favor of its renewal. The levy, initially passed in 1967, has been renewed every five years, he said. “It’s not a new tax, but a renewal,” Kapfhammer emphasized. Revenue from the levy can only be used for specific purposes, such as for building operations and repairs, equipping and furnishing schools, maintaining and purchasing buses, safety, and computers. It is not for operating costs, such as salaries. “We have invested that money and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for the taxpayer,” said Kapfhammer. It’s an investment tool we’ve used very wisely.” Dennis Walendzak, co-chairman of the levy campaign, said one of the cost saving projects funded by the revenue is the extension of a natural gas line from Eisenhower Middle School to Jerusalem Elementary School, which has saved the district over $40,000.

We have invested that money and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for the taxpayer.


The district also used the revenue to put in a primary electrical grid to Eisenhower, Fassett and Clay, said Walendzak. “The district has been able to reduce its electrical usage in excess of $200,000 on an annual basis,” said Walendzak. Some expenses cannot be avoided, he said, such as complying with an unfunded state mandate for computerized testing for all standardized assessments in the 20142015 school year. “Current capacity at the high school

would not allow the district to achieve that mandate from the state. So they are looking at doing some technology upgrades with the PI levy, and improving some safety features at the schools to make school environments more secure. They do have a plan of where they feel these monies will be directed,” said Walendzak. If the levy is not renewed, he added, expenditures will still have to be made. “They will have to come out of the operational expenditures of the district,” he said. Voters previously passed the levy on Nov. 4, 2008. It will expire at the end of this year. The levy costs the owner of a $100,000 house $61 annually, and generates about $1.1 million revenue annually, said Kapfhammer. “It could even cost less for many taxpayers because of a drop in property values,” he said. “If the levy is not renewed, we have one more shot at it in November. If it’s not renewed by the end of this year, it will go away forever,” said Kapfhammer. “On top of that, we’d lose over $100,000 from the state, which is based on the PI levy. If the district introduces a new PI levy, it will be based on new millage, not millage from 1967. And it would cost taxpayers more and be a new tax. This levy has to pass.”

Prosecutor renews call for employee raises By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Loyalty and dedication are employee traits that should be rewarded, Ottawa County prosecutor Mark Mulligan said as he renewed his call for county employee raises. And the county commissioners responded by saying they will take a hard look at possible staff compensation later in 2013. The plea on behalf of those under the jurisdiction of the commissioners came at a recent semi-annual elected officials meeting. “I told them they had some employees that are dedicated to the job, loyal to the county and to the commissioners,” Mulligan said Tuesday. “And after five years, they should reciprocate that loyalty.” The courthouse employees not under a union umbrella have gone five years without raises. Several unions have received raises. However, the deputies union voted to forego raises the past year to help the

county make its budget, Sheriff Steve Levorchick said in an earlier interview. Mulligan began his campaign on behalf of staff last fall when the budget hearings began but the commissioners - worried about a tight budget – decided to not raise employee wages. Mulligan said a couple of things caused him to make another pitch. “With the sales tax not being challenged and things looking a little better, I thought I would bring it up again,” the prosecutor said. “They had already prepared a budget for 2013 without the sales tax (money),” Mulligan said. A 0.25 percent permanent hike in the county sales tax was approved by the commissioners in February. There were no referendum challenges filed at the board of elections regarding the decision, Mulligan said. There had also been fears that sales tax system changes proposed by Gov. John Kasich would invalidate the new tax as of July 1. But the proposed changes have already been dropped in the Ohio House and it’s uncertain what other changes will be en-

acted, said Commissioner Jodi Regal, vice president of the commissioners’ board. “We’re just not sure where things stand on the state level at all,” she said. Regal acknowledged that commissioners have agreed to give raises or a one-time bonus another consideration. Still, she stressed, nothing is guaranteed. Mulligan agreed to work with county administrator Daniel Jensen, Human Resources Director Pam Courtney and county auditor Larry Hartlaub to come up with some creative proposals. “We have to review our contracts, make sure all our bases are covered before we do anything. We’re willing to look at options. But nothing is set in concrete. Nothing has been decided,” Regal said. Mulligan said the idea will likely be explored for several months. He said commissioners indicated, should there be some compensation coming, it might occur around July 1, a halfway point of the county’s fiscal budget. Regal, however, would not talk specific dates. “Again, nothing is concrete,” she said.


Coping with stress The bombings in Boston, the plant explosion in Texas and the severe weather hitting area communities have forced people to confront a wide range of traumatic and stressful events during the last week. Incidents like these require everyone –not just those on the ground in the affected areas but also those watching media outlets in other places – to pay attention to their mental health and to take steps to positively manage stress. “This is a very upsetting time for Americans, and it’s important for everyone to pay attention to what they’re thinking and feeling and to take care of themselves,” said Becky Hauserman, American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio Disaster Mental Health volunteer. “It’s especially important to take care of the children around you and to reassure them of their safety.” The American Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can take to help cope with the recent events: • Stay informed, but limit exposure to media coverage of the events. • Take care of yourself. Eat healthy, drink plenty of water and get enough rest. • Be patient with yourself and others. It’s common to have any number of temporary stress reactions such as anger, frustration and anxiety. • Stay connected with your family and other support systems. Reach out and accept help from others. • Encourage children to express their feelings and thoughts. Reassure them about their safety. To reach out for free 24/7 counseling or support, contact the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-9855990 or text “TalkWithUs” to 66746. Children are especially at risk since they may become afraid that a disaster could affect them, or that they or someone in their family may be harmed. It is important to comfort children and talk to them in a calm manner. Their view of the world as a safe and predictable place is temporarily lost during emergency situations. How a parent or other adult reacts around children following a disaster can determine how quickly and completely they recover. People can find more information on recovering after a disaster or emergency on

Gibsonburg school income tax levy on ballot By Larry Limpf News Editor Residents of the Gibsonburg Exempted Village School District will decide a request for a 1 percent, 10-year income tax on the May 7 primary election ballot. The resolution approved by the school board to place the issue on the ballot requests $950,000 annually for operating expenses from an income tax levy. The tax would be levied on the earned income of district residents. The Ohio Department of Taxation defines an earned income tax base for a school system as the earned and self-employment income, including income from partnerships, of the residents of the school district. According to financial statements the district filed with the Ohio Auditor’s office for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, Gibsonburg schools had revenue of about $8.1 million. About $5.4 million came from state foundation payments and just under $2

million from real estate taxes. Expenses reached $8.8 million, including $5.4 million for personnel and $1.9 million for retirement contributions and insurance. A five-year projection the district filed with the Ohio Department of Education last October shows it received $744,926 in federal grants in 2011 but only $8,456 in 2012. Property tax allocations were $402,403 in 2010 and $404,632 in 2011 but dropped to $289,048 last year. The forecast for 2013 and 2014 is $291,804 and $292,534 respectively. “The district continues to receive alarming news from the Sandusky County Auditor’s office regarding property tax delinquencies. Currently, the Gibsonburg Exempted Village School District has over $190,000 in property tax delinquencies that the auditor’s office is attempting to collect. The increased delinquency rate has prompted the Sandusky County prosecutor to begin examining ways to use legal action to ensure tax payments. Unfortunately with

the high foreclosure rate and the lackluster sales of foreclosed homes, the district continues see to growth in local delinquencies,” the projection states. Without revenue from the income tax, the district is projecting total revenues of $8.1 million for fiscal 2014 – about $174,000 less than it received in 2010. If the tax is approved, Gibsonburg would be the fourth school district in Sandusky County to enact an income tax. The Clyde-Green Springs District has had a 1 percent income tax since 2009; the Fremont City School District has a 1.25 percent tax that went into effect in 1994 and the Lakota School District has a 1.5 percent tax that went into effect in 2005, according to the department of taxation. A school income tax is collected in the same manner as the state income tax – through employer withholding, individual quarterly estimated payments, or annual returns, according to the taxation department.

Rt. 105 to be resurfaced A resurfacing project on State Route 105 in Sandusky and Ottawa counties may cause intermittent lane restrictions between U.S. 23 and State Route 51, the Ohio Department of Transportation has announced. The project is scheduled to start May 6 and is expected to be complete by the end of September. Traffic will be maintained by flaggers.

Water patrol funding OK’d The Ottawa County commissioners have approved the 2013 Marine Patrol Assistance Agreement with the Ohio Division of Watercraft. The state portion is $32,000 and the county match is $10,668.

State unveils new hunting regulations for 2013-14 The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) encourages hunters to educate themselves about Ohio’s new game tagging and checking procedure for the 2013-2014 hunting seasons. These changes provide a more consistent tagging process between exempt landowners and those using a permit. The new game check process applies to spring turkey, fall turkey and white-tailed deer hunting seasons. A new feature this year is that hunters will need to make their own game tag to attach to the turkey or deer. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of kill. The ODNR Division of Wildlife has a blank game tag available at, which is suitable for the tagging and checking process. Follow these steps when tagging wildlife during the upcoming spring hunting seasons: • Protect permits and game tags from

the elements by placing them in a plastic bag or protective pouch before hunting. • Landowners and permit holders must complete a game tag immediately upon harvest and prior to moving the animal. The game tag must include the hunter’s full name, date, time and county of kill. Hunters need to make their own tag from any material they choose, and write legibly with an ink pen or permanent marker. • Attach the game tag to the animal immediately upon harvest and prior to moving it. • Permit holders must complete the spring turkey permit with the date, time and county of kill. Those exempt from purchasing a permit can ignore this step. • Complete the automated game check process and receive an 18-digit confirmation number. Permit holders must record this number on the permit. • The 18-digit confirmation number must also be attached to the animal. Hunters may also choose to write the number on the game tag.

All hunters must report their turkey harvest using the automated game check system. Hunters have three options to complete the game check: online at wildohio. com or; by telephone at 877-TAG-ITOH (877-824-4864) and at all license agents. A list of agents can be found at Game-check transactions will be available online and by telephone seven days a week including holidays. License agents’ locations will be available for turkey checkin during normal business hours. Hunters can call the license agent for specific hours of operation. All turkeys must be checked in by 11:30 p.m. the day of the kill. Landowners exempt from purchasing a turkey permit, and any other person not required to purchase a turkey permit, cannot use the phone-in option. More information, including a pamphlet explaining the process, is available at Hunters with questions can also call 800-WILDLIFE (800-945-3543).

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

If money was no issue, what room in your house would you redo?

Do you support same-sex marriage? Yes No Undecided To cast your ballot, go to Denise Caris Toledo “If I could redo any room in my house it would be the living room. I would modernize it... update it, change carpet, change colors, redo the windows... that’s what I would do.”

Becky Metcalf Rocky Ridge “I would enlarge my bedroom so I could put two end tables in there and have more room in my closet so I could hang my clothes up much nicer. I would like to have a walk in closet.”

Lack of knowledge To the editor: Reading the letter “NRA government?” in the April 15 issue, I told myself that the almost total lack of knowledge (ignorance) that the general public has about firearms, our Constitution, how government works and world history is astounding and disheartening to say the least. Why no uproar about media bias? The media should remove itself from telling us what it and government wants us to hear and tell us the unbiased truth. The media is supposed to be neutral. Why is it that there is no uproar about the 3,800 children per day who die in this country? You read that right – 3,800 per day. Oh but that’s legal. The NRA has approximately five million members. Hundreds of thousands of them are service personnel and members of our police forces. The NRA is “the people” and the oldest organization in this country. Do we really think those five million are wrong and the couple hundred in Washington are right? Man has been violent with man from the beginning of time. This is not going to stop anytime soon. Actually, it is getting worse and more unpredictable. A firearm is a great equalizer during a violent situation. A 70-year-old cannot fight two 20-somethings when the door gets kicked in. If he can, he can call 911 when it’s over – if he’s able to. There are many more scenarios we read and hear about each day. Help me to understand how taking away people’s ability to protect themselves and others from all aggressors foreign and domestic is the right thing to do. Are we so dull as a people as to believe that we can take away all of the different weapons (hammers, ball bats, knives, bombs, cars, or firearms) of choice violators might use? Do we really believe that as a people, we can create enough laws and pass enough legislation to create the utopia everyone is looking for and not have three-fourths of the citizens in jail? As to who profits from all of this, all Americans profit from this with personal and national security. Past world leaders have even commented that invading America is not even considered because its citizens are armed. There is a book that I read and it has this passage in it, “my people perish for lack of knowledge.” When does common sense and being realistic start again? We used to have that as a country. Mark Cordell Walbridge

Soft billing beneficial To the editor: As president of the Oregon Part-Time Firefighters Association, I would like to say that city administrators and council have been very open and upfront with the idea of “soft billing.” I was asked to sit in with the fire department, city administration and members of council to observe and comment on the candidates as the city was interviewing each company and their proposals. I have been in contact with Chief Ellis and Mike Beazley about this process and we have had open communication with the part-time firefighters. I will say that we, as citizens, already pay for “soft billing.” The only downfall is that the city does not see the monetary return as other neighboring cities and townships do. “Soft billing” is utilized in Ohio and nationwide. It only makes sense that Oregon starts this program and places the money collected from insurance “not citizens’” back into the EMS/fire

Robert Allen Toledo “The room I would pick to remodel would be the kitchen. It’s 35 years old. I build the cupboards when I first came over here from England and they need a complete redo.”


Marisela Mata Toledo “If I could redo any room in my house it would be my kitchen. I would make it bigger so I could put an island in it.”

Keith Cameron Curtice “I would like to redo the bathroom. It could use a complete makeover. I would insulate it better. Switch the toilet out from a small round to an oblong."

department budget. Since Oregon is a city, however, and not a township, the money collected from “soft billing” cannot be guaranteed to go back to the EMS/fire fund. Section 737.112 of the Ohio Revised code mandates all funds collected in municipal corporations shall be credited to the general fund. There is no guarantee the money will be used for fire department capital improvements such as new ambulances, fire engines, station improvements and/or new fire stations. The caveat is this: municipal corporations do, however, have the ability to create ordinances or resolutions, which in turn can supersede the Ohio Revised Code. The last thing the part-time firefighters would want to see is the money collected to go back to the general fund, or have the money go into the EMS/fire fund and then the city pull or detour money that would have been going into the fire fund away and use it elsewhere. `The only guarantee the money would be allocated back into the EMS/fire fund would be language in an ordinance resolution that stipulates the money collected goes back into the Oregon Fire Levy Fund and/or EMS, which can be easily done. There are mixed emotions among the 90 part-time firefighters in how they feel about this. However, I feel that comes not from the billing itself, but from the trust that the money collected will go back to benefit the fire department not to the general fund. I would expect the city administration and council will remain open and honest in this approach as they have been. I feel with the open-ended approach the parttime firefighters and the city leaders can assist in educating and answering questions of the citizens whom we all serve. I would like the citizens of Oregon to know that the part-time firefighters will continue to help, serve and protect our fellow neighbors in time of need and despair, regardless of where the money is allocated. Sean Beavers President, O.P.T.F.F.A

Shameful and cowardly To the editor: I will not address the opinions of the person who made a comment on my letter in the April 15 issue of The Press. The Republicans and a few Democrats bent to the pressure of the NRA. It was shameful and cowardly. The Second Amendment, when it was written, couldn’t predict things like AK 47s or “Montana.” It needs major changes. Where in the Second Amendment are the rights of those 20 children and teachers killed in Newtown? Should we all be proud that the Republican Party has been successful in seeing that Americans retain the right to get ticked off and shoot 300,000 American people to death each year? It is a non-discriminatory action. You can shoot anyone to death, regardless of age, sex or ethnicity. They have protected rights of people who have assault weapons and putting more assault weapons on the streets at this time jeopardizes everyone’s safety. Public Safety should be paramount now, as always. Background checks are conducted on all military service members before they are handed a weapon. In fact, 91 percent of

military veterans support a universal background check for all gun sales, according to a survey commissioned by the organization Vote Vets and the Center for American Progress Action Fund. No civilian should have access to a semi-automatic assault rifle. A federal ban will help prevent criminals from getting these dangerous firearms. According to the Sunlight Foundation, 42 of the 45 dissenting senators received donations from firearms lobbyists. The National Rifle Association alone has given $800,000 to 40 of the senators who voted against the amendment since 1990, much of it in the run-up to the last election. Hey folks, follow the money. Many thanks to Adolphus Bush IV, an heir to the Busch family fortune, who asked the gun rights group to immediately remove his name from its membership. Here is a man of many principles. I saw this saying, “There should be a background check before the NRA is allowed to buy a senator.” Joanne Schiavone Walbridge

Levy support urged To the editor: On May 7, Oregon Schools will be asking the residents of Oregon and Jerusalem Township to renew the 2-mill permanent improvement (PI) levy. This PI levy was originally approved in 1967 and has been renewed every five years with no increase in the millage. Monies collected through the PI will go toward maintenance of the district’s buildings and purchases of equipment meant to last more than five years. Most recently, the board and school administration has used the money to make strategic investments to the schools’ infrastructure that has resulted in significant savings to the operational costs of the district. Major projects included: • Improvement of the electrical service infrastructure to Clay, Fassett and Eisenhower buildings, resulting in an annual savings exceeding $200,000. A natural gas line was connected from Eisenhower to Jerusalem, saving $40,000 in heating costs. Solar panels were installed at Starr and Jerusalem this past winter. The money collected from the upcoming five-year PI cycle will be used to fund • Safety improvements to the school buildings, resulting in a more secure facility. • New technology to integrate iPads and electronic text books into the classrooms. • This will allow the schools to comply with the new State of Ohio computerized testing mandates. • New instruments for the band and music programs. • Preventative maintenance and upgrades to improve operational efficiencies. State law mandates that no money from the PI levy can be used for operational costs or salaries. The schools are an important part of the Oregon and Jerusalem Township communities. We need an efficient, well maintained school district to be successful in attracting businesses that want to locate here and families that want to grow here. Please review the levy information being made available to you before you make your decision.

I think you will agree that it’s in our best interest to vote to renew the permanent improvement levy. Dennis Walendzak Oregon City Council Member

A house divided falls To the editor: I don’t want to enter into the divisiveness that is happening at St. Ignatius, but I do want to commend Ms. McCroskey for reminding me of all the sacrifice and hard work that went into our older churches. She made some excellent points. I was honored to serve the first Mass at St. Jerome when Fr. Pastorek was assigned as the pastor. I recall the sacrifices that my parents and others made to build the new church. In our Catholic faith, the presence of the Lord in the tabernacle has always been at the center. All tabernacles were located at the center of the church for this reason. With Him at the center, it made it easier to focus on what united us. I know that Vatican II allows for either a separate adoration chapel for the Eucharist or that the tabernacle be put in the center behind the altar. I hope that the tabernacle is put at the center of the new church and that once again this helps to unite the people, including the pastor, as to what is really the most important thing we do. We are all called to “wash feet,” not to lord our power over others. Peter was given the keys to the Kingdom. These keys are love and forgiveness. I pray they are put to good use at St. Ignatius. Let us also remember His admonition – “Everyone knows that a house divided falls!” Steve Cherry Oregon

Historic bridge has a storied and controversial heritage Peter Navarre and his fur-trapping brothers settled the land east of the Maumee River in 1807. But, they would have to wait until 1864 to cross the river on a bridge. That was a wooden toll bridge costing two cents to cross. It would take another 67 years before his descendents could cross a bridge that wasn’t intermittently closed due to river traffic. That was made possible in 1931 when the Anthony Wayne Bridge was built. Soon, that bridge will close for two years for a $28 million renovation. It won’t be the first time the bridge, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, will be renovated. The bridge has a storied history and some of it is controversial. The bridge opened with much fanfare in 1931. A crowd estimated at 40,000 attended the ceremonies and more than 2,500 marched across the 3,215-foot span, according to an article appearing in The Toledo Blade. Mayor W. T. Jackson said at the time, “This traffic artery has snapped the bottleneck that so long has retarded the progress of the city and gives Toledoans the first continuous crossing of the Maumee without bridge raisings and tie ups.” Other speakers included Frank Corns, president of the East Toledo Club. Corns said the bridge would erase all barriers between the communities on the east side and those on the west and bring about a closer cooperation between the two. The need for an unimpeded passage to connect east and west was so great Toledoans passed a $3 million bond issue in 1928. Not even the 1929 stock market crash and The Great Depression could stop construction. In fact, the jobs were welcomed. At the time, the bridge was an engineering marvel, although it was not without its troubles. It employed the deflection theory, according to Jack Harbaugh, a civil engineer, who did inspections of the bridge in the 1980s and wrote a book in 1990 titled Maumee River and Other Toledo Area Bridges. That theory states that the longer a bridge is the more

After 82 years of service the Anthony Wayne bridge is set to close for two years for a $28 million renovation. (Press photo by Stephanie Szozda) flexible it could be. That was accomplished through the use of cables and suspended ropes to allow the structure to bend and sway with the winds by absorbing stress in the towers and abutments. Using steel cables to support the structure meant engineers could use less concrete piers and realize a significant cost savings. Harbaugh writes the New York engineering firm of Waddell-Hardesty hired one of the most eminent designers of suspension bridges in the world, Leon Moisseiff, to aid in design of Toledo’s bridge. Moisseiff was involved in the design of the Manhattan Suspension Bridge, Detroit’s Ambassador Bridge and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. He would later design the Tacoma Narrows Suspension Bridge, which according to Harbaugh was

Related story pg. 1 nicknamed “Galloping Gertie” because of her oscillations and undulations. In this bridge, Moisseiff pushed the theory too far. The bridge collapsed into Puget Sound in 1940 taking with it one automobile and one dog. The ratio of stiffening girder to span in “Galloping Gertie” was considerable less than the one employed in the Anthony Wayne Bridge, which is within accepted design parameters, according to Harbaugh. However, shortly after being built, the bridge exhibited undue expansion movement at

the approach piers, bolts sheared off and expansion joints were added. Later, there would be problems with salt eating the concrete deck. Harbaugh was so taken by the Anthony Wayne Bridge that he wrote a book about it and, in 1979, he proposed to Nancy Lee Kowalski at the middle of the main suspension. The two married and with 10 children from previous marriages had a “happy eventful life.” The bridge was not only noteworthy because of its engineering, but it also incorporated the largest girder in the world at the time--one that was 154-feet long, 12feet high and weighed 83 tons. The bridge’s main span is 785 feet, its length 3,215 feet and its towers rise some 200 feet above the water. The two main cables consist of 3,534 wires compressed and wrapped to a diameter of 13 inches. While Toledoans celebrated this first unimpeded access to East Toledo, they couldn’t agree on a name. According to a 1931 Blade article, Toledo City Council passed a resolution naming the bridge the Warren G. Harding Bridge to honor the 29th President of the United States and an Ohio native. However, the resolution was repealed and a contest held to solicit names from citizens. The winner was Toledo High Level Bridge. You would think that would settle the matter, but council, under pressure from a group of citizens who wanted to honor one of northwest Ohio’s military heroes, voted to adopt a new name--The Anthony Wayne Bridge. Mayor Jackson refused to sign the resolution which is why today the bridge has two names. Comment at

Furnishing the empty nest For parents, experiencing their kids leaving the nest (and taking their stuff with them) can not only be a momentous event, but it can also be one sometimes tinged with a bit of sadness. After all, your little boy or little girl is all grown up now. However, looking at the bright side, this means you now have one or more rooms that can be turned from a kid’s bedroom into a space you can now enjoy. You may have been making due with storing your personal effects into rooms in the house simply because of necessity. But now that the kids have flown the coop, it’s possible to take over their rooms and turn them into something tailored to you and your spouse. The following are a few transformations that can take place. Craft center – Many people enjoy making things with their hands, be it painting ceramics or knitting sweaters. A room that is set aside for different types of craft projects can keep work undisturbed and organized. Walls filled with shelves and storage containers alongside bulletin boards will create a utilitarian feel to the room. Have a large task table so you can spread out work and comfortable sitting chairs. Stick with a

Sports room – Sports enthusiasts may want to set up a room devoted to collections of trophies, collector cards, memorabilia, and any other sports-related items. Add a sofa or recliners in the room as well as a big-screen TV, and this spot can be the

perfect place for watching the game undisturbed.

face-to-face so it can be a his-and-her work center. Use neutral paint colors so that it will be more of a gender-neutral space. Private bedroom – Although topics of the bedroom are often kept hush-hush among friends and family, many men and women aspire to one day having their own bedrooms. After time retreating from the master bedroom because of a spouse’s snoring or simply because of being on opposite schedules, separate bedrooms enable you to create rooms that cater to you. Put in the amenities you desire and encourage your spouse to revamp the other bedroom according to his or her desires as well. Guest retreat – Many times guests are forced to sleep on a pull-out bed or sleeper sofa when staying over at a loved one’s. Having an extra bedroom available can enable friends and family members to stay overnight with comfort and ease now. Library – Some people simply enjoy the ability to curl up with a good book in a quiet space. Turn a vacated bedroom into a cozy nook complete with bookshelves, a plush chair and decorative reading lamp. Fill the nook with favorite books, decorations and a side table to house a cup of tea or coffee. Regardless of how you feel when your children leave home, redecorating empty rooms into new spaces can help add a positive spin to your suddenly empty nest.

Senior Living Alternatives for Every Stage of Life


New retirement calculator As millions of Americans watched their savings and retirement accounts take a hit during difficult economic times, many were left wondering if retirement was still an option for them. For many, the first step to evaluating their financial future includes a retirement calculator to determine when they can retire and what is needed to do so. AARP recently launched its new Retirement Calculator. “Based on user feedback and a changing retirement landscape, AARP revamped its retirement calculator to enhance usability, but maintain accuracy in its results,” said Jean Setzfand, Director of Financial Security at AARP. “Whether an individual is starting at square one, or needs to reevaluate original plans, the AARP Retirement Calculator is a tool that can set him or her off on the right foot and help determine what needs to be done next.” Where many calculators are designed only to produce a quick snapshot, the lack of information returned and resources made available often leaves users confused or with inaccurate results. Other calculators are complex, requiring too much information or too deep an understanding of economic principles many aren’t familiar with. These calculators often result in low completion rates and lost opportunities to educate an individual about their retirement needs. “We feel our new calculator strikes the right balance between giving users the

“Compassionately committed to excellence in customer service!”

information they want while making it engaging and easy to use,” said Setzfand. “It streamlines the process through the use of pre-populated answers, but allows for customization and adjustment of the assumptions if ‘power users’ choose to.” New features of the AARP Retirement Calculator include the ability to develop a retirement plan for a dual-income home, calculate and include individual Social Security benefit estimates as a part of retirement income, easy-to-navigate tabs, easyto-understand explanation of where an individual is currently at in their retirement planning and the ability to experiment with various retirement scenarios to create a plan that is right for each individual. Upon completion of the calculator, individuals will be provided links to a number of AARP resources to learn more about Social Security, financial planning and health care in retirement. The new AARP Retirement Calculator does not promote any product or service. Research has shown that using a tool like a retirement calculator can be one of the best ways to help people focus on the steps many need to take to get their financial lives in order.

Teens lead day of service during Clay Cares Day Clay High School students independently organized a large-scale community outreach initiative Sunday, April 21. The initiative, dubbed “Clay Cares” was the first of its kind for the Oregon high school. Organizing students were thrilled with the successful launch. Prior to the event, students contacted local organizations to inquire about possible service projects that could be accomplished by the all-volunteer student group, which include more than 60 students. Representatives from the Little Sisters of the Poor, Oregon Senior Center, New Harvest Church (Food For Thought) and Clay High School were heartened by the offer and delighted when their projects were completed in four hours. “These kids were awesome – they moved a huge pile of trimmings,” said Bill Lindeman, from Little Sisters of the Poor. “Students did everything from hauling stone, mulching, planting, painting, cleaning and trimming trees.” “They are indicative Oregon’s children – teens that care, teens that want to make a difference in the world,” said Pastor Sharon McQueary of New Harvest Church. After completing all of their projects, the students enjoyed a pizza celebration in the school cafeteria. Joe’s Pizza provided discounted pizza for the party, while other

On April 21, a contingent of more then 60 Clay High School students volunteered their time, completing service projects as part of the first-ever Clay Cares initiative. local businesses sponsored the event by providing supplies and t-shirts for participants. “We were delighted with the support

of local businesses,” said student leader Luke Davis. “We told them what we were doing and they didn’t hesitate to provide funding.”

Sponsors for the event included Eggleston Meinert & Pavley Funeral Homes, National Bank of Ohio and S & D Capital. Additional support came from GenoaBank and Mr. Emblem. Clay Cares Day leadership team consisted of students Luke Davis, Andrew English, Todd Klewer, Megan Ladd, Kyle Gladieux, Brandy Pelfry, Lydia Winckowski and Mackenzie Doring. They were supported by Clay teacher volunteers Dawn Thompson and Vallie Robeson. “We were so impressed with how ambitious this group of students were, and how hard they worked,” Thompson said. “This was truly 100 percent their project.” The team is hopeful that Clay Cares Day will be the beginning of a legacy of high school students providing service to those in need in their Oregon community, Davis said. “I thought it was a fun day. I actually enjoyed helping the community. It was a good feeling to accomplish so much by working together. I think this project should be continued in the future,” said Megan Ladd, student participant The seniors on the committee issued a challenge to the Clay class of 2014: “Our team spent the entire school year preparing for this event, and we challenge the class of 2014 to do it bigger, better and bolder next year.”

Genoa grad awarded Dressel Memorial Scholarship Owens Community College student Taylor Beck, of Genoa, has been chosen by the Alumni Association to receive a $1,253 Detective Keith Dressel Memorial Scholarship for the upcoming 2013-14 academic year. Established in 2007, the endowed scholarship honors the legacy of Det. Keith Dressel, of the Toledo Police Department’s Vice/Narcotics Section Special Enforcement Division, and his service to the community. The scholarship is presented annually at the Outstanding Service Awards to an Owens student studying to become a police officer and who embodies the passion, conviction and perseverance demonstrated by Det. Dressel during his career. Additional selection criteria include enrollment in a minimum of six credit hours at Owens per

semester, holding second-year student status and achieving at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average. “Both Detective Dressel and his wife, Danielle, are part of the college’s alumni family, as they both attended Owens. The Alumni Association is pleased to award the Det. Keith Dressel Memorial Scholarship to Taylor Beck as she is a very deserving recipient of this award and will certainly honor the legacy of Det. Dressel,” said Laura Moore, executive director of the Owens Alumni Association. Beck is a fulltime Owens student, having enrolled as a criminal justice major in the fall of 2012. She is a graduate of Genoa High School. For several years, she has actively worked to be a positive influence in her community, which includes organizing

a fundraiser for a sister’s friend who was stricken with stage two breast cancer. The event raised more than $5,000 to assist with medical bills. She also started a drive in her church to assemble and send care packages to members of the military deployed overseas in Kuwait. Taylor Beck Additionally, Beck led an initiative to decorate a “mitten tree” at her church, collecting mittens, gloves and hats

for donation to the Cherry Street Mission Ministries. Following graduation from Owens, Beck plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and eventually her master’s degree. “Being a police officer is honorable,” stated Beck. “My ultimate aspiration is to become one of those women in uniform with the privilege of protecting the people of my community.” Det. Keith Dressel was fatally wounded in the line of duty in February 2007. He provided public service to the Toledo Police Department and the citizens of Toledo for 14 years. He left behind his wife, Danielle, and two children, along with a very large extended family.

April 16, at the school. This year. 27 students were honored for their career-technical achievements. The NTHS is similar to the National Honor Society at comprehensive high schools where students are recognized for scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Membership in the NTHS at Penta requires students to maintain excellent attendance, good behavior and a 3.5 grade point average. In addition, inductees must meet the seven attributes of NTHS (skills, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and leadership). For the past few years, a committee of Penta staff members has been preparing to establish a NTHS to recognize student achievement and leadership. “This is a great opportunity for Penta to honor our students,” said Mindy Phillips, instructor of Math and one of the advisors for NTHS. “We are also pleased that the students are still eligible to apply for membership in the National Honor Society at their member schools. The NTHS is just another way for students to be recognized at Penta for their career-technical achievements.” Among the students selected for induction in the 2013 NTHS at Penta were Grant Adams (Genoa), Geographic Information Systems; Sarah Bostic (Woodmore), Small

New welding fast track certificate starts in May at Terra State Terra State Community College will offer a new 11-week Fast Track Welding Certificate beginning in May. Students will take three classes – Materials, Safety and Blueprint Reading – online. They will complete seven other courses on campus. Upon successful completion of the coursework, the students will receive a welding certificate. “For years, we have had a very successful Fast Track Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning program that students can complete in nine months,” said Andy Carroll, dean of Engineering and Mathematics. “We believe this 11-week welding certificate program can be just as successful in getting skilled welders into the workforce quicker.” According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of welders, cutters, solderers and brazers is expected to grow 15 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. About 51,000 new welders will be hired by 2020. The classes begin May 20 and end Aug. 5. Students who wish to pursue an associate degree in welding later can apply these credits toward a degree. For more information on the certificate program, call the Admissions Office at 419559-2349.

Church Worship Guide Deadline: Thursday 11:00 am

nspirational essage of the One of the most difficult of human challenges can be forgiving those who have hurt us. Our hurt feelings usually incline us more toward revenge than forgiveness. And at times, we may even feel that fairness or justice requires us to punish those who have wronged us, or at the very least, call upon them to give an account of why they have acted in such a way. Sometimes punishment is justified, and sometimes people should be called to give an account of their actions, but that doesn’t mean we should not forgive them. On the contrary, until we have truly forgiven someone who has wronged us, we are held

eek: Forgiveness

captive by the real or imaginary wrong that was done to us; it gnaws away at us, eating us from the inside out. The real and lasting value of forgiveness lies mainly in the way that it allows us to think about this negative event in a more positive way: as an event that called forth mercy and forgiveness rather than revenge and retribution. True forgiveness is an act of God’s relations far better than justice or revenge. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors. R.S.V.
