Local man helps growers in Mozambique By Larry Limpf News Editor For his latest volunteer efforts in Africa, Ron Overmyer was rewarded generously with a live chicken and a bowl full of sweet potatoes. The gifts were from members of the Samora Machel Farmer Association who primarily grow white corn and soybeans on farms averaging five to eight acres in a highland area at the eastern base of the Bvumba Mountains. Overmyer, of Oak Harbor, last month completed his third trip to Africa for the Farmer-to-Farmer program administered by the Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs, working with growers who live near the town of Catandica in west central Mozambique The association, formed in 2008 with about 15 members, now has about 1,370 members and could surpass 5,000 in five years. Overmyer describes the association as similar to Grange and Farm Bureau in their infancies in this country. His assignment on this trip was to help the growers make the transition to an organization structured more like a farmers cooperative. “After the civil war they didn’t have peace until the early 1990s,” he said. “Since

After four years of renovations, Toledo Public Schools and the administration, staff, students, and the Alumni Association of Morrison R. Waite High School will host a rededication ceremony of the school this Friday, May 9 at 1:30 p.m. in the Grant Murray Field House. The Waite pep band, orchestra, and show choir will perform, and TPS Superintendent and Waite graduate Dr. Romules Durant, Business Manager James Gant, and architect Gary Ashford will be among those speaking. A ceremonial cutting of the ribbon will take place and commemorative cake will be presented to all attendees at the conclusion of the program. Interested individuals will be allowed to take self-guided tours of the building following the program The following day, Saturday, May 10, the alumni association will host its centennial celebration at the SeaGate Convention Centre in downtown Toledo. Doors open at 5 p.m., social hour begins at 5:30, dinner at 6:30, the program begins at 7:30 and music, dancing and socializing will continue until midnight. Waite Principal David M. Yenrick expects that about 1,700 reservations will have been made. The deadline has passed and no tickets will be sold at the door. He hopes it will be quite a show. “Since this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, you don’t know what to expect,” Yenrick said. “But, we’re pretty happy.” Leo Goldner (1941 Waite graduate), Don J. Baumgartner (’45), Raymond L. Frick (’64), and Darla (Wandtke) Harbaugh (’69) are the honorary chairmen for the event and the Toledo Refining Company is an honorary corporate sponsor.

then they’ve been forming associations to help farmers work together to improve their situation. A cooperative would have a more business-like structure. The big issue is strategic planning in the next three to five years. When I was there we looked at the initiatives they need to be working on to do that.” A retired Ohio State University Extension educator, Overmyer said the plan includes strengthening the growers’ marketing ability by securing more customers for the members and improving their transportation system. Also, mechanization of some farming practices will need to be adopted to increase income and efficiency. “The challenge as they add more mem-

bers is the resulting complexity of the organization and being able to communicate with everyone,” he said. “Communications is a problem. In “the bush” area a number of them have cell phones. So they can call each other and pass on information. The association is made up of 30 or so clubs and club leaders will call members who have cell phones. There are no land lines so they try to have a member of each club spread the word to other members. That may take two or three days to get the message to everybody. Hopefully, the message stays consistent.” A non-government organization helped the association prepare by-laws, Overmyer said, and he’s recommended those laws be reviewed to comply with the country’s regulations covering cooperatives. Association members have said they’d like to build a warehouse to store corn. “It’s not like in the U.S. where you have futures contracts and the crop price tends to fluctuate based on projections and so forth,” he said. “What happens there is prices are extremely low at harvest because most farmers have to sell because they don’t have credit and can’t hold the crop. So they usually have to sell at a low price. As the five-month marketing period goes Continued on page 3

Waite Continued from front page Waite Has-Beens luncheon, an Educator’s Luncheon, and a Choral Centennial Banquet. It will conclude with a Centennial Memorial Day Program on May 22 at the newly renovated Waite Auditorium beginning at 1 p.m. Since the beginning of this year’s centennial festivities more than $250,000 in donations has been received for the Alumni Association Endowment Fund. Planning for this event has been ongoing since the fall of 2007, said Yenrick, a 1974 Waite graduate who plans to retire as principal after this school year. Alumni and history S. Jean (Varwig) Clark, a 1965 graduate and chairman of the Waite High School Alumni Association, notes that the association played a role in making sure Waite was renovated and not rebuilt during Toledo Public School’s partnership with the Ohio Schools Facility Commission. “Over the last four years, Waite has gone through a transition to prepare it for the next 100 years,” Clark wrote for the program. “The building has been transformed into a modern facility that honors and maintains historical features such as murals and windows. All the public spaces are welcoming and the classrooms ready for learning. There are new technology systems, science labs, distance learning labs, a fine arts wing, cafeteria improvements, and a field house sound system and floor,” Clark continued. “The building is air conditioned to guarantee year-round use and is handicap accessible. No more selling elevator tickets to freshman. The library (former cafeteria) looks stunning with new shelving given by alumni. The light through the leaded windows makes the room look like a cathedral.” Robert Genzman, Waite Class of 1959, in his written history of the school’s beginnings, explains, “Morrison R. Waite High School is located on a plat of land comprising between 10 and 11 acres which was formerly an Ottawa Indian village. “In the third quarter of the 19th

Century, the present location of Waite High School was the site of a brickyard, which produced bricks for construction purposes. This area was also known as the ‘brickyard ball grounds’ due to the fact that this was a favorite site of baseball games. The site was also used for the Ringling Brothers Circus that was held at least once annually. People from all over Toledo and the surrounding vicinity would brave the mud and see the great show. “The site of the old ‘Waite Bowl’ and

the football stadium was part of ‘Highways’ Pond,’ which was probably part of an ancient bed of the Maumee River. “In 1909, the property bounded by Morrison Drive, East Broadway, Essex, and Second Streets was purchased by the Board of Education as a site for a school, and the City of Toledo was so interested in the project that it bought the adjoining ground between Second and Front Streets as a permanent park. The new school was not to be spoiled by lack of room.

“The construction of the building was begun by the Spieker Company in 1910, but because of labor troubles and the scarcity of materials, the school was not opened for classes until the fall of 1914. The entire cost was $900,000. A field house for physical education and athletics was added in 1954 at a cost of $500,000, and in 1976 a vocational center wing was constructed at a cost of $2.25 million.”

Bill passed

Development zone bill nears vote By Larry Limpf News Editor A bill that could end the authority of Ohio municipalities and townships to establish new Joint Economic Development Zones may be up for a vote before the Senate Finance Committee by the end of May. State Sen. Randy Gardner, R- Bowling Green, a member of the committee, said he expects the bill to be ready for a floor vote shortly after it comes out of committee. Gardner and Sen. Edna Brown, DToledo, hosted a recent forum in Perrysburg on HB 289, which passed in the House in February by a vote of 89 to 8. As passed by the House, the bill would: • Terminate on Jan. 1 2015, the authority of municipalities or municipalities combining with townships to create new JEDZs. • Prohibit the renewal of a JEDZ contract, which can be in effect for multiple years, after Dec. 31, 2104. • Require entities entering into a JEDZ contract before Dec. 31 to formulate an economic development plan for the zone, including a schedule for implementing new or expanded services, facilities or improvements. • Require the formation of review councils to evaluate the effectiveness of the development plan. The councils would include the county auditor, owners of the four businesses with the most employees within the JEDZ, someone affiliated with an economic development organization, and a member of the public. • Require at least half of any income tax revenue generated within a JEDZ formed by a municipality and a township be used for the services, facilities or improvements until they have been completed. Local officials at the forum said JEDZs were a necessary tool for economic development. Sheilah McAdams, an attorney representing Spencer Township, said the formation of the zones have helped townships avoid “protracted annexation battles and deteriorating working relationships” with municipalities. She and others speaking at the forum described HB 289 as an over-reaction to JEDZs formed recently in central and southern Ohio that were apparently designed more for tapping existing tax revenues rather than fostering economic development. Several people testified in favor of the bill when it was pending before the House State and Local Government Committee, including an employee of the Pickaway Correctional Institution who claimed a development agreement between Scioto Township and Grove City was put in place to capture income tax revenues from prison employees. Ohio law doesn’t permit townships to

levy income taxes on their own. Eileen Granata, an attorney with the City of Toledo law department, read a letter from Mayor D. Michael Collins during the forum that states the economic sustainability of the region will be determined by “our ability to collaborate with our neighbors.” “While the City of Toledo is involved in 7 JEDZs, perhaps the most successful example can be seen at the Triad Industrial Park,” the letter says. “At this location, the city has invested more than $2.5 million and in conjunction with the City of Maumee and Monclova Township, has created or retained more than 200 jobs.” Michael Beazley, Oregon administrator, also spoke in favor of not unraveling the current legislation. “Very few tools allow us to compete together rather than against each other,” he said. The owner of a business in Briarfield Business Park said he favored the bill because he was hit with an income tax when the City of Maumee and Monclova Township formed a development zone. State representatives Tim Brown and Chris Redfern, who were unable to attend the forum, split their votes when the bill was before that chamber. Rep. Brown, R- Bowling Green, told The Press he voted for the bill because it

brings about needed changes. “I supported HB 289 because of its common sense restructuring of the Joint Economic Development Zone (JEDZ) and Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) process,” he said. “Use of the JEDZ and JEDD tools should bring about true economic development, and services, not just a revenue stream from taxation. To ensure a more proper use of these tools, properties and businesses impacted by the creation of a zone or district must agree and consent to being included in any future arrangements. The end result will mean a voice in the process for those businesses and entities proposed for taxation.” Rep. Redfern, D – Catawba Island Township, voted against the bill, saying local communities need more tools for economic development in the wake of the loss of local government funds from the state in recent years. “JEDZs, tax increment financing, and other programs are ways to build economic development at the local level,” he said. “I’d rather err on the side of giving more tools to local government. It’s just a bad bill.” Sen. Gardner said the bill’s primary sponsor Rep. Kirk Schuring, R- Canton, has indicated he is flexible on several of the bill’s provisions.

Mozambique Continued from front page on the price of the corn usually keeps increasing. So there is probably money there to take care of storage if they can get a well-managed warehouse built. That only happens with corn, not with soybeans.” Association members last year sold about 7,500 bushels of corn and 7,000 bushels of soybeans. For the most part, the corn is processed into flour for human consumption – often mixed with water to make a dish called sema which has a consistency of mashed potatoes and tastes like grits, Overmyer said. Soybeans are sold to large commercial poultry producers as a base for feed, he said. Chicken and eggs are an important part of the Mozambican diet. The farm work is done manually. “That means hoeing the field, planting by hand, weeding by hand, gathering the plants for threshing by hand, beating the soybean plants to remove the seeds and shelling the corn ears, and then separating and bagging the seeds,” he said. Soybean yields are usually around 30 bushels per acre and open-pollinated corn yields average about 40 bushels per acre while hybrid corn yields average 80 bushels per acre. “They’re making progress. The yields still aren’t that great but they have difficulty getting good inputs such as higher quality seed and fertilizer in particular,” Overmyer said. Most of the growers live in round homes made of sticks and mud with roofs of thatched grass. While Portuguese is the official language of the country, many rural residents speak only tribal languages. Overmyer roomed with another CNFA volunteer from Boston, who was working with another association, and an interpreter. “It was a tremendous cultural experience along with the opportunity to share my agricultural expertise. I learned from them as much as they learned from me,” he said. The gifts of sweet potatoes and the chicken were given to a CNFA director as they wouldn’t be allowed past customs. The Farmer-to-Farmer program is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Overmyer is available for presentations to local groups. In 2011, he volunteered with corn growers in the Kasese District in Uganda and in 2012 he was a volunteer with the Agricultural College of the Catholic University of Mozambique.

Auto supplier getting ready to move to Oregon By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor A manufacturing company that will employ up to 35 people plans to move into a building that will be constructed on Spartan Drive in Oregon. Ed Harmon, chairman of Spartan Logistics, said it will cost $2.5 million to build the facility. The company, which he can’t yet name, is related to automotive manufacturing. “I can’t divulge the name this week, but soon. We’re waiting to sign some documents. It will be a long term lease,” he said. “It’s a good project. It will keep growing,” he added. Spartan also refurbished a 10,000 square foot building owned by Spartan at 205 Lallendorf Road. It will be leased to a national company out of Texas with up to 20 jobs. He also wasn’t ready to disclose the name of the company, though he said it was in distribution. In Northwood, Spartan added 100,000 square feet to its building at 6705 Wales Road. A Fortune 100 company that distributes a “food type item” is expected to lease the now 200,000 square foot building.

drawn to Harmon’s facilities in Oregon over the years. “We do the same thing throughout the country,” he said. “We have contracts with national companies. We just finished a 500,000 square foot building in Dallas, a 100,000 square foot building in Little Rock Arkansas, and a 600,000 square foot building in Port Smith, Arkansas,” he said. Harmon is also president of 28 different companies owned by Harmon Family Development LLC. “We have our own real estate company, our own construction company, our own leasing company, our own property management company, and we also advertise nationally in scope. We bundle all the requirements needed by our customers. It’s a very seamless method of attracting commercial and industrial clients,” he said. Even in the face of the recession in 2007, Spartan continued to build facilities locally and across the country. To what does Harmon attribute his continuing success? “It takes a lot of effort to make it happen. But you have to be honest and straightforward with people to be successful,” he said.

“I can’t tell you the name, but I can tell you they will be creating 35 jobs,” he said. “The company is probably in the top 20 of Fortune 100 companies. They signed a 10 year lease on the facility.” Spartan constructed the building in the early 90s for Millcraft Paper, which moved away about a year ago, he added. Spartan then marketed the building nationally when a company expressed interest for a 200,000 square foot facility. “We spent $4.5 million to refurbish the building and added another 100,000 square feet,” he said. Spartan has grown considerably since it constructed its first facility on Wales Road in Northwood about 20 years ago. It owns nine different facilities in Oregon and Northwood. It owns 6 million square feet of commercial and industrial properties across the country, from New York to California. In Oregon, Northwood and Toledo, Spartan owns just under 1 million square feet of properties. Fresenius, a medical care facility, and Caraustar, the nation’s largest supplier of gypsum facing paper in North America, and the second largest manufacturer of convolute-wound and spiral-wound paper tubes and cores, are among the companies

eek: How Do You Define Success?

The personal success business is a significant part of our economy, with Americans spending literally billions of dollars every year in the hopes of figuring out how to be personally (and financially) successful. Much of this enterprise is materialism at its worst, with clever hucksters convincing hopeful, often greedy, or unwary marks to part with their hard-earned money in the hopes of getting rich. And while it certainly isn't fair to paint all of these success gurus with the same brush, it is worth asking what the point of all this success is about in the first place. How do the people selling success define it?

Do they define success by nothing more than material prosperity? If so, they are defining it very narrowly, and are at odds with God's message of success. If success is nothing more than material prosperity, then Jesus and the prophets would have to be judged abject failures. On the other hand, if they define success as personal growth, meeting our individual goals, and living in harmony with God and our fellowman, then this is probably something worth attaining.

Oregon to issue bonds for assisted living facility Court date set for suspect in bomb threats If they were to name

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press

A rural Oak Harbor man accused of inducing panic with bomb threats to area schools, including two in Oak Harbor, remains in custody on a $250,000 bond. Charles Tingler, 22, of North Leutz Road, Salem Township was returned to the Ottawa County Detention Facility following his initial appearance Monday in Ottawa County Municipal Court. He will be assigned a court appointed attorney and return for arraignment at 3 p.m. May 5, a court employee said. He was originally charged with two counts of inducing panic in connection with the April 21 bomb threats at Oak Harbor High School and Oak Harbor Middle School. However, the paperwork for one of the charges was filed incorrectly but will not be resubmitted, the employee said. Tingler is also the suspect in several other hoax calls at Waite High School, Port Clinton Middle School and the Fremont Wal-Mart. On May 14, Tingler’s case is scheduled to go before an Ottawa County grand jury, according to Ottawa County Prosecutor Mark Mulligan. If Tingler is indicted, the case will then fall under the jurisdiction of the Ottawa County Common Pleas Court. Authorities arrested Tingler last Friday – just five days after the first calls. They say he admitted to making the threatening calls, which reportedly started as playful talk between Tingler and a friend who stated he did not want to go to school that day. Students had ended classes April 21 and were on their way home and to extra-curricular events when the threats sent school officials into crisis mode. Tingler reportedly used a mobile phone application called that disguises the caller by leading those on the other end of the line to believe that the call originates from a completely different source. “Don St. Clair of the (Ottawa County) task force is the one who dealt with the mobile application. It was a good bit of police work,” Mulligan said. During the investigation, St. Clair was informed the call to the high school appeared to have come from the middle school. Delving further, he found the real caller’s number had been hidden somehow via a cell phone application. He tracked the call to a provider of the suspected application. After a subpoena was issued, the provider turned over the name of the caller and also provided recordings of the calls, Mulligan said. “He also digitally disguised his voice,” Mulligan said. “In one he sounded like an older man. In the other it sounded like a fake young girl’s voice, with almost a Mickey Mouse type voice.”

Oregon City Council on Monday approved the issuance of up to $7 million in mortgage revenue bonds for the development of an assisted living facility for seniors on a 13-acre site at the southeast corner of Seaman Road and South Coy Road in Oregon. AlcoreSenior LLC, the developer of the project, located in Columbus, proposes to develop, own and operate, through an affiliate, a campus for seniors that will include 10-20 independent living units located either in ranch style bungalows or a multifamily building, and a 77 unit licensed assisted living/memory care center of approximately 45,000 square feet. The final unit mix and facility set-up will be determined upon completion of a market study. The assisted living/memory care building will be a combination of studio and one bedroom units along with dining rooms, living rooms, activities areas, in-house beauty shop and other common amenities for resident and community use. Last year, council passed a resolution of intent to issue the bonds. Glen Pratt, of Peck Shaffer & Williams, bond counsel, said there’s no liability on the part of the city in issuing the bonds. City Administrator Mike Beazley also said the debt does not “put any of the full faith and credit of the city at risk.” “This is debt that Ohio law allows cities to participate in that effectively lowers the interest rate to allow projects of this nature to move forward,” said Beazley at a recent committee of the whole meeting. “We do not spend money associated with this. We do not have to pay the debt back, no matter what happens with the project

or development. Ohio law allows access to this mechanism only if the local government says it’s Ok. I’ve been involved in a number of these for major hospital systems and senior assisted living facilities in the county and City of Toledo. Oregon’s previous experience with this is with Lutheran Homes.” The city will be merely a conduit issuer that will loan the proceeds to the borrower, who will use it to construct and operate the project. “Those who are purchasing the bonds provide the funds,” said Beazley. Proceeds from the bonds will be made available to AlcoreOregon LLC, which will own and operate the senior living facility, according to Diana Silveira, of Peck Schaffer & Williams. Councilman Josh Hughes asked Silveira if the borrower defaults, what impact would there be on the city? “The rare possibility is someone would name the city in a lawsuit,” said Silveira. “These investors typically invest in transactions like these so they know what they’re

Local labor Hughes said council and the administration “spent a great deal of time and energy to make sure this development…benefits our citizens both during construction and thereafter.” “To that end, I’ve had considerable discussions with Alcore and I received their assurances that this project will be built entirely with local labor,” said Hughes. There have been five public hearings on the project, beginning with the zoning process, said Beazley. “We’ve had many neighbors in attendance, with back and forth, give and take. Our neighbors felt listened to. We have a project that works. We feel good about how we got here.” The facility will provide assistance with activities of daily living - from meals, bathing, dressing, ambulating, housekeeping, toileting, and transportation. The facility will target seniors who are approximately 81 years old and over, and the average length of stay will be three years. The project will employ about 30 fulltime staff with an annual payroll in the range of $750,000. AlcoreSenior LLC was founded in 2011 by Benjamin J. Byers. Council also passed a sanitary sewer agreement with Alcore Oregon LLC for the construction of sanitary sewer improvements along Coy and Seaman roads. The agreement includes conditions for the sewer improvement to be constructed as a “Cash-to-Tap” sewer in which parcels of real property adjacent to the proposed senior facility will benefit from the sewer improvements.

Emergency training vital, available for personnel By Larry Limpf News Editor Shootings in schools receive a lot of attention from the news media but over the past 30 years acts of violence in businesses and churches involving guns rank just as high, members of the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce were informed at its April breakfast. Lt. Phil Cook, of the Toledo Police Department, said companies should consider ALICE (Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate) training for their personnel as it can be tailored for “any venue where people gather.” Instead of locking down a building and waiting for police to arrive, ALICE focuses on a more pro-active response. After the shootings in December 2012 at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut, school officials across the country began to “pull their heads out of the sand” and re-evaluate their emergency response plans, Lt. Cook said. The Toledo Police Department began changing its response tactics after the 1999 shootings in Columbine, Colorado, he said. Today, the ALICE Training Institute is headquartered in Medina, O. and Ohio is recognized as a leader in the training. Paul Mullen, Assistant Chief of the Oregon Fire Department, said his department is adopting ALICE training along with

members of the city’s police department. He said there is a trend for emergency medical service personnel to ‘move into hot zones” to treat injured persons rather than wait for buildings or sites to be completely secured. Sirens discussed City officials have been discussing the purchase of five more tornado sirens, he said, referring to problems with sirens not sounding when a tornado swept through the area last November. He urged chamber members to consider purchasing weather radios to receive alerts. Sirens, he said, are an alarm system for people who are outside. Northwood Fire Chief Joel Whitmore and Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer told the chamber that area departments have put a premium on mutual assistance. “We rely heavily on mutual automatic aid agreements,” Whitmore said, adding the Northwood department has such agreements with Rossford, Lake Township and the Allen-Clay fire departments and is working on an agreement with the department in Perrysburg. Area departments have also upgraded their communications equipment and aren’t hampered as much as they were when they used systems with different frequencies. “We’ve come a long way with that,” Whitmore said.

Business owners should have plans in place to address disaster scenarios and his department offers free CPR and fire extinguisher training. The response to the June 2010 tornado that so heavily damaged Lake Township exemplifies the level of cooperation between agencies, Hummer said. Urban Search and Rescue teams from Cleveland and Toledo were in the township within hours. In all, 39 police departments and more than 80 fire departments responded in the days after the tornado hit. “Together we can handle anything,” he said. “Regionalism is where it’s at. From the smallest village to the largest city. We work together.” He said police and fire departments in northern Wood County have aligned their radio systems with the Lucas County system – a move that allows them to communicate with agencies throughout the state. Det. Jeff Goetz, of the Walbridge Police Department, said his department’s decision to utilize social media like Facebook has helped both with crime solving and alerting the public to emergencies. Walbridge may be a small village but its proximity to rail yards make it a potential target for terrorism, he said. He called tanker cars a potential bomb and said officers frequently conduct foot patrols along train tracks. “We have to be pretty vigilant watching those train tracks,” he said.

Maximum sentence issued for Oak Harbor home invasion The alleged leader of a violent home invasion in Oak Harbor last December will spend the next 14 years in prison. Paul Thebeau, 22, Port Clinton, got the maximum sentence allowable by law Monday when he stood before Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters to answer for crimes committed over a pack of missing cigarettes. He had pleaded guilty in March to one count of felony aggravated robbery and intimidating a witness. Eight other charges were dropped in exchange for the plea, court records show. He has since been sent to a sorting center where state prison authorities will determine where he will begin life behind bars. Prior to his sentencing, Thebeau professed remorse for the Dec. 5 inci-

dent, claimed he had found God and had reached the fourth step of the 12 steps of sobriety, Ottawa County Prosecutor Mark Mulligan said. His victims were in the courtroom but did not speak to the court. Moments after the judge handed down the sentence, Thebeau said “This sucks” and directed an obscene statement at Winters, the prosecutor said. Thebeau is said to have orchestrated the rampage at the village home with three companions, Cody McClanahan, 19, and Steve Ryf, 21, both of Oak Harbor, and Travis Edwards, of Port Clinton. The evening began with the foursome celebrating a birthday at another home in Oak Harbor along with one of the vic-

tims. That fifth person left the party and Thebeau later found cigarettes missing, according to police and court reports. Thebeau sent the others to the victim’s house to reclaim his property. They reportedly went in the house and found the cigarettes in a coat pocket while the man was sleeping and left. Hours later, Thebeau, who had been drinking, became angry over the incident and insisted on going to the victim’s home again. McClanahan came along but the other two reportedly claimed they were threatened into taking part in the break-in and feared for the lives of their children, according to police reports. Around 3 a.m., they banged on the

The family in this case was terrified for their lives.

The force knocked the father up against the wall and the assailants took turns punching the person who had been at the party, police reported. Thebeau also claimed that the victim owned him $1,200, which the victim later claimed was untrue. The then group rounded up the house occupants, smashed their cell phones with a frying pan and threatened their lives repeatedly, said Sgt. Robert Paulsen in the days directly after the break-in. During those moments, Thebeau put a knife to the throats of two of the victims, police reports show. “The family is this case was terrified for their lives,” Mulligan said. Authorities rounded up three within days of the invasion and McClanahan turned himself into police. McClanahan, Ryf and Edwards will be sentenced May 22.

Oak Harbor Library planning for levy on November ballot By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Oak Harbor Library officials are planning to put their first levy on the ballot in November. The proposed 1-mill levy would generate $368,424 annually for the library that has been struggling to meet community needs in the wake of cuts in state funding over the past five years. A taxpayer with a home valued at $100,000 would pay about $35 a year in additional taxes, according to the Ottawa County auditor’s office. “We’re hoping by passing the levy we can restore some services like library hours and take care of some necessary building needs,” Head Librarian Nina Hall said Tuesday. The West Main Street facility has re-

duced its hours, including staying closed on Sundays. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The library board of trustees has also cut back significantly on the purchase of new books and materials each year and decided to no longer subscribe to online services such as the once-popular auto repair reference site, Hall said. “They are too costly,” Hall explained. Instead, patrons rely on items available through free online services provided via the Ohio Public Library Information Network. The budget constraints have also made it impossible for the library board to address major building maintenance, specifically the installation of a badly needed new furnace, explained Kathy Steinmiller, president of the board.

The carpeting has also seen better days, Hall added. “This will be a new levy,” Steinmiller explained. “We will put it on one time and hopefully that will be enough.” The library, established in 1908 by the Oak Harbor Literary and Social Club, is a municipal library serving the BentonCarroll-Salem School District. The library board includes six members who are appointed by the mayor of the Village of Oak Harbor. Because the library is situated within a municipal taxing district, board trustees had to go to village council to request a levy resolution on behalf of the library. Funding the levy campaign and other associated costs fall solely on the library board, Steinmiller said. Mayor Bill Eberle said paperwork for a resolution could be ready as soon as the

next regular village council meeting on May 5. Because of a three-reading requirement, passage could take up to six weeks or council could deem the situation an emergency to speed up the process, giving library backers more time to get the levy ready for an upcoming election. In Port Clinton, the Ida Rupp Public Library is seeking a levy renewal on the May 6 ballot. A 2009 levy expires this year and library trustees there are asking voters to pass a replacement and reduction levy of 0.8-mill for five years. That would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $28 a year, according to campaign literature.

Wastewater plan for Northwest Ohio updated, ready for review By Larry Limpf News Editor Updates to the region’s Water Quality Management Plan can be reviewed May 6 at the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments offices, 300 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, Toledo. The plan covers Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky and Wood counties in Ohio and Bedford, Erie and Whiteford townships in Michigan. The plan will be open for review starting at 6 p.m. Kurt Erichsen, TMACOG vice president of environmental planning, describes the plan as the area’s “agreement on how we will work together to meet the goals of

the Clean Water Act.” “I characterize it as a statement on behalf of local governments as to what the roles of agencies are in implementing the Clean Water Act,” he said. Systems to collect and treat wastewater and sewage and the management of septic systems are covered by the plan as well as agricultural run-off. Revisions include proposed changes for boundaries affecting planning areas for the cities of Toledo, Oregon, Fostoria, Luna Pier and Port Clinton; Erie Township; the Village of Oak Harbor and Ottawa County. “A planning area represents a 20-year service area for a wastewater treatment plant,” Erichsen said. “That can cross political boundaries.

is not an area owned by the village. It’s an area that would be considered within the service area of their treatment plant. The planning areas for two plants meet at Tettau Road in Ottawa County. What we’re doing is moving a few parcels from Oak Harbor to Port Clinton so the entire landfill is in the Port Clinton planning area. The intent is for the City of Port Clinton to treat leachate from that landfill.” Another update involves the Village of Walbridge and City of Northwood. Erichsen said the boundary for the cities of Toledo and Oregon plants is being moved a block or so to the west of Drouillard Road along a rail line. “There is a practical reason. If you’re putting in a sewer line you’re going to want to service both sides of the road. Also, there are a small number of houses on

the west side of Drouillard that are being served by Oregon. We need to make sure we reflect that. It’s also consistent with the Northwester Water and Sewer District boundaries,” he said. There are no changes this year to the section covering agriculture run-off. However, Erichsen said that section underwent a complete re-write last year. “There is a pretty thorough discussion of what we know about agriculture and algae blooms,” he said. The plan will be submitted to TMACOG’s environmental council on May 22 and then to the council’s board of trustees in mid-June. If approved, it will be submitted to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Once certified by Gov. John Kasich it will be submitted to the U.S. EPA.

Obituary Gary William Hoffman Gary passed away suddenly, yet peacefully on April 26, 2014. Gary was born April 2, 1964 and left this life too soon, for he had many more years of loving his wife of 26 years, Jane (Paxton) and their daughter, Taylor Cass, in front of him. Gary is also survived by his dad, Stanley James Hoffman, Sr. and his brother, Stanley James Hoffman, Jr, Stan's children, Jamie and Andy; Jane's parents, William and Rev. Shirley Paxton and his sisters and brothers in-law; Marty (Mike) Franchot, their children, Will, Lizzie, Peter and Katie; Anne Paxton (Gana Fofang), their children, Dema and Shirley, and Suzie Paxton (Patrick Horan), their son, Griffin, all who loved their Uncle Gary so very much. Gary joins the spirits of those he loved who passed before him, including his mom, Roena Taylor Hoffman and his best dog friends Blaze, Buster, Sam and Scout. Gary graduated from The University of Toledo and had a long career in computer/technology sales. But Gary found his true calling when he held a paintbrush in his hand. He founded GWH Painting in 2005 and enjoyed seeing the transformed beauty in a newly painted room or house. Gary loved many things: a long walk on the beach or in the Little Point Sable Memorial Nature Preserve with his dogs, hitting a long drive on his favorite golf course, driving fast with a buddy on a dirt road (with Van Halen playing LOUD), a good hand of Euchre, or creating the perfect cheesecake. But what Gary loved most of all was his wife and their daughter. Jane and Taylor were always in his heart. Gary's smile, his laughter and his love will forever be in their hearts, as it will be in the many people whose lives intertwined with his. There will be a visitation at Christ Presbyterian Church, Toledo, May 10, 25:30pm, followed by a service of celebration and sharing. Gary will be interred at Little Point Sable, Michigan, where a service will be held at a later date. Charitable contributions in Gary's memory can be made to the Memorial Nature Preserve (805 Glen Rd, Shelby, MI 49455) or the Toledo Area Humane Society, 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee, Ohio, 43537 or a charitable organization of your choice.

School district on ballot with 4.99-mill emergency levy By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press

ping block in the days ahead hasn’t been discussed yet, Mock said. Levy information is being sent home to the parents. The school district’s Instant Alert messaging system is also sending out “Get Out and Vote” reminders. And the end of the year schedule is full of major events such as honors and awards banquets and the spring musical where officials are taking the opportunity to speak on the levy’s behalf, the superintendent said. Should the measure fail this spring, officials expect to make another pitch in November. There is, they say, little wiggle room left. The district tried three times before the emergency operating levy passed nine years ago. Failure of the levy will propel the district into a complicated slashing mode that would take months of discussion, Mock said. Cuts would not come in the 2014-15

Genoa school officials are working to convince voters of the need for a 4.99-mill emergency levy for operating expenses on the May 6 ballot. The new levy is expected to generate about $800,000 a year. For the owner of a home valued at $100,000 that’s about another $175 annually to help cover the costs of salaries and benefits, daily expenses, classroom materials and transportation. It’s been nearly a decade since Genoa schools have asked for an operating levy, Superintendent Dennis Mock said. Back then, district leaders were in such a dire situation they were forced to cut busing for older students to keep the budget in line. Those services have since been restored. What services or jobs face the chop-


school year but reductions would likely be targeted for 2015-16, when, without the levy, the district deficit is projected to be about $836,000. The continued reduction in state funding is at the heart of the financial quandary. Most school districts barely have recovered from the real estate tax and income tax losses generated by the recession that began in 2008. The state, they say, compounded the situation with its continued cuts. And over the past five years, Genoa school leaders have confronted the situation by making difficult decisions to reduce staffing and services amounting to more than $6 million, district treasurer Bill Nye reported in previous interviews. The loss of the Chinese language program and reductions in the nursing, development and psychological staffs are some of the most noticeable changes.

The district also made changes to its school building program, resulting in a combined campus with a new middle school and elementary building in walking distance of the high school. Many of those multi-million dollar changes were crucial elements in reducing long-term costs in transportation and utilities and allowed for better working relationships between students and teachers, Mock said. While the state picked up the bigger portion of the construction tabs, property owners still have at least 20 years before the elementary school debt falls off the books. Mock defends the construction of the new schools and the savings associated with leveling the outdated buildings. “I think the consolidation helped us stay off the ballot a few years,” he said.

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

How has the closure of the Anthony Wayne Bridge affected you?

Will you be attending the "Biggest Week in Birding?" Yes No

To cast your ballot, go to Joan Adamson Lake Twp. "It's a pain. You have to hop on 75 or 280 just to go around to the other side of the river and you have to allot for more time because it all just takes longer."

Tracy Saull Millbury "It doesn't effect me at all. I work on the other side of town but I take the Skyway Bridge."

Superintendent responds To the editor: This letter is to respond to letters published last week regarding the facility plan for the Northwood school levy. • School choice/school competition/ open enrollment exists in our state for all students and their families as a part of Ohio law. Currently 40 Northwood students are choosing to attend other schools taking approximately $257,000 in state aid with them from our community to cover the costs of their education at the schools they choose to attend. In Northwood, 1 mill of property tax raises about $115,000 so about 2.25 mills of property tax we pay is currently leaving our community and paying for education at other schools. In this environment, our school district has made the choice to compete for students and allow students from other communities to make their choice Northwood schools. When they make that choice, they bring both state tax dollars as well as some of their home community tax dollars with them to pay for their education in our school. Our district limits the number of students we accept at each grade level and program so that no additional staff members are required. We currently have 161 students from other communities in our school and those students are bringing approximately $803,000 this year with them from their communities to cover the costs of their education. That equates to about 7 mills of property tax coming in to our school from other public school districts. By accepting open enrollment students our district experiences a net positive of about $699,000 a year, which equates to about 6 mills of property tax you and I are not paying because our district has chosen to compete. • By making many tough, unpopular and fiscally responsible decisions such as permitting open enrollment and other operational changes including the closing of Lark Elementary School, our board of education has continued to offer excellent learning opportunities for our students while not seeking any additional funds from our community in more than six years. Our district is currently in excellent financial condition and if state funding remains steady over the next several years, our treasurer’s most recent five-year forecast shows the school not needing to ask voters for operational funds during that time. • As a letter writer stated, school district mergers are unpopular with communities. What I said about it however, was misrepresented. I have not stated that a school merger was “not even considered”, I have stated no steps have been undertaken to implement any (“unpopular”) school mergers. In my “considering” this idea, it is clear not only are school mergers unpopular, if one did occur, the other area school districts would not have space to accommodate all of our Northwood students in their buildings. In other words, we still need to address our facility issues. • Northwood schools began assessing our buildings with the State of Ohio in 1990. That original study was revisited in 2000, again in 2008 and updated last in 2013. The plan that our community is being asked to support was arrived at through a community engagement process in which 61 of our residents took part. Not everyone agreed all the time. In the end, the plan the group recommended, is to build one 130,000 square foot building that will provide educational spaces for preschool through grade 12 while preserving all of the common spaces of the 51-year-old cur-

rent high school for community and student use. Area districts which have made this choice that our citizens can look to for reference are Elmwood and Lakota. The information from those meetings is available on our district website for all to review. • If property tax alone were relied on to pay for the plan, the levy needed would be around 9 mills to raise our local share. That would be a large levy, especially for those on fixed incomes. Recognizing this, the community members studying our options also recommended a levy that was split between property tax and earned income tax to pay for the plan. An 0.25 percent earned income tax portion of the levy does not tax investment income, pensions or Social Security. The board has also chosen to use funds from recent tax abatement agreements to help pay for the plan which reduces the cost for all our residents. Greg Clark Superintendent, Northwood Local Schools

nently – that is a double tax. Also, do the people in Northwood know that the state has taken the roll-back away for any new tax and this school levy is a new tax, so no roll back on property value. Over 26 years, my husband and I have lived and raised three children here. We have seen many school levies pass and many changes to the schools, including additions to what used to be the middle school. There were major renovations at that school; the old gym was turned into a cafeteria, classrooms added as a second floor and a new gym with locker rooms and showers added. The high school, Olney and Lark had many things updated over the years through tax dollars we all paid and are still paying. Now the school board and superintendent just want to tear them down.

A saint…really?

New school needed

To the editor: This pertains to Pope Francis proclaiming John Paul II a saint. What miracles did he perform? How can the Pope even begin to proclaim the former pope a saint when in fact he was guilty of responding slowly to the crisis of sexual abusive priests, and the bishops who enabled these actions against innocent children – a scandal of major cover up of pedophilia behavior. Then he put more shame on our faith by giving Vatican sanctuary to Cardinal Bernard Francis Law, an enabler of child abuse who resigned in disgrace in 2002 as Archbishop of Boston. Another unforgivable breach was the former pope’s defense of a Mexican priest, Marcial Maciel Degollado, a pedophile, womanizer, embezzler, and drug addict. The priest’s order, the Legionaries of Christ, denounced him in February for his “reprehensible and immortal behavior.” This is a slap in the face for those of us who have worked hard in raising our children in the Catholic faith. We teach our children to obey the teachings of our faith, and then read in the papers about Pope Francis’ canonization of a pope who has broken the teachings of the Catholic faith. This is far from the teachings I learned at the Catholic school I attended. Apparently, there two sets of rules – one for the followers and then one for the priest. Not once did the pope apologize for his behavior, nor did he apologize to the innocent children that these priests destroyed. A saint he is not, and he doesn’t deserve to be called a saint. This is a sad day in the eyes of the innocent who had to endure the pain and suffering at the hands a man who decided to sweep this behavior under the rug. This is one of the reasons I have left the Catholic Church. Joann Schiavone Walbridge

Not the time To the editor: I have always supported the schools – until now. In response to the letter, “Obvious argument,” maybe she thinks $300 per year is not unaffordable, but to a lot of people who make $50,000 per year (before taxes) it is unaffordable. Especially when you want to tax my property for 37 years and tax my income perma-

To the editor: In response to Mrs. Barton’s and Mr. Tewers’ letters last week, a new school building in Northwood to replace the three current schools is needed, and the only way we can provide it to our children is to pass a levy. With state assistance of $11.5 million dollars, the cost will never be lower to provide our children a safe, healthy, and efficient school. The outdated infrastructure and structural problems aren’t going away. Most need to be addressed in the immediate future. Our high school had buckets collecting water from the leaking roof when the snow melted and on days of heavy rain. Olney students had their books and work damaged from leaking windows. Fourth graders had to wear their winter coats in one classroom this past winter. Many walls in the elementary building have peeling plaster from water damage. Last November, a pipe broke under the elementary building nearly canceling school the next day. The plan for Northwood to build one school for all grade levels is not a new concept. Many small districts have done this to increase efficiency. Buildings are designed to appropriately separate elementary, middle and high school students, yet share some common areas such as the cafeteria and gym. Erin O’Connor Co-Chair, Citizens for Northwood Schools

All in for students To the editor: I am writing in response to Sandy Susor’s comments about Oregon Superintendent Lonny Rivera. She must not really know Mr. Rivera at all. I did some checking; email is public record and there is no email from Mrs. Susor to Mr. Rivera. Mrs. Susor, I believe, is trying to take a shot at Mr. Rivera for personal reasons. Next I checked why Mr. Rivera was not at the National Honor Society banquet. What I found was he was at the University of Toledo seeking money for scholarships and programs for Oregon kids. Additionally, I found that two board members – Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Molnar – were both present at the program. Sunshine laws prevent more than two board members being present at an event. So I say to Mrs. Susor, before you call someone out, you should investigate the facts.

88% Yes 12% No

Anyone who knows Mr. Rivera will tell you he is “all in” when it comes to kids. Troy McLaughlin Oregon Editor’s note: McLaughlin is a wrestling coach in the Oregon school system.

Supporting students To the editor: In response to the letter titled “Disappointed” in the April 28 edition of The Press, I did attend the National Honor Society Induction held at Clay High School. Heather Miller, her husband and I were seated together in the rear of the auditorium. As chair of the Oregon School Board Academic Committee, I have attended all academic functions in our schools for the past four or five years. These include but are not limited to DARE graduation, elementary honors programs, Presidential Fitness Awards Luncheon, Eisenhower and Fassett honors breakfasts or programs, the Top 10 Percent Banquet, the Honors Pancake Breakfast, National Honor Society Induction, Clay Honors Night and graduation.

Verify before you share

Don’t be too fast to post, cautions social media expert Page Two by John Szozda

We read into the articles and we don’t do a Google search to see whether it’s true or not. We just go right into it.

They thought they were helping to apprehend a man wanted by police for raping four young children including his son. They shared posts on Facebook, they called the police when they saw him, and they threatened him. Once, Toledo police responding to a call put him on the ground and handcuffed him. Google Chad Lesko’s name and you’ll see it was all a lie, allegedly perpetrated by an ex-girlfriend, the mother of his son. The woman posted the allegations on a fake account under the name of Nicole McCarthy. The post went viral, garnering some 35,000 shares, according to Gina Fielding, a social media expert from East Toledo. Fielding became familiar with the case when it broke last May. She was working with a local radio personality who took up Lesko’s case along with other journalists in an effort to set the record straight. But, after stories about Lesko’s innocence were aired, and the woman admitted to spreading the false information because she was angry with Lesko, there was a bigger issue to consider—how do you stop something like this from happening and ruining someone else’s life? After getting the word out to refute the false charges, Fielding assessed the impact on the Internet. While there were 35,000 shares for the false story, there were only 6,000 for the true story. “The bad information got all these shares, but the good information didn’t get as many,” Fielding said. “The reason for that is, I think, when people see such a post they want to get this monster off the streets.

Not very many of us have the ability to go out and actually do something, but you can help with a click of a button…They see it on Facebook and they think they are doing a good deed, but they don’t realize it’s a lie.” Fielding and a friend, Cerise Claussen, thought something could be done to stop erroneous information from spreading. They came up with the line, “Verify before

you share a lie.” Fielding took that line and launched a website by the same name. The site provides a free and easy way to check a post before you share it. She verifies posts in three categories: missing persons, wanted persons and sex offenders. She searches public records and has relationships with local police. Her goal is to answer the request within minutes to hours. The process is simple: when you see a post that could damage someone’s reputation, click on it, copy the url to the post from the address bar and submit it to www. You can Tweet it, post it on the verify Facebook wall or email it. This small effort can prevent the long, stress-filled road sharing a lie poses for the innocent victim. Fielding said Lesko, 23 at the time, suffered multiple anxiety attacks and was hospitalized because of them. Fielding works for AMZ Media so her website is a part-time passion. She doesn’t verify celebrity gossip, missing pets, urban legends, cheating spouses, anything political or if a coupon is too good to be true. This is a site strictly for verifying missing persons, wanted persons or sexual offenders. Fielding recently investigated another post earlier this year about a rape at a local mall, but she sensed a problem with the story. “It was terrible, but it happened in 2003 and was recycled and being shared as though it was recent. We’re a headline based society and we read a headline and we click a share button. We don’t read into the articles and we don’t do a Google

search to see whether it’s true or not. We just go right into it.” Even if you conduct an Internet search, you must be cautious, Fielding says. “If you see 10 links that corroborate what you’re looking up, you automatically assume it’s true. But, what you don’t realize is these 10 people have gotten it from someone else, so you have to check your source when you’re looking for the truth.” Besides causing grief for someone falsely accused, sharing a post can have other unintended consequences. Fielding gives us two to consider. • A woman in an abusive relationship goes into hiding, but the spouse posts a pic of her claiming she is missing and provides contact information. By reposting, you could put her back in danger when someone sends contact information to the spouse; •An old post about a missing child subsequently found murdered gets recycled. The mother of the child sees it and has to relive the heartbreak. If you think these are isolated cases go to and view the Top Ten People The Internet Wrongly Accused. Here, you will see how sick some people can be. Fielding leaves us with two cautionary notes about the Internet—it’s lightning fast and it’s forever. Even if you succeed if removing a false post, someone somewhere has saved it and the post can resurface later. To learn more go to Comment at

Avoid the ‘noise’ around you and pay attention to your life You are surrounded by news, images, and videos of what other people are doing with their lives. It’s a constant barrage. Facebook, YouTube, the Internet, reality shows, gossip shows, magazines, newspapers, and the tabloids all enable you to peer into everyone’s exploits. You receive real time updates as to where people are going, who they are meeting, who they have as friends, what they are doing, what they are eating, what they bought, and what they are thinking. Envy and jealousy have always been common emotions. Being concerned about what others are doing is an age-old phenomenon. Technology has diminished privacy by transforming the ability to examine the lives of others into a recreational activity. It’s only natural to then rate your life against everyone else’s. The measure becomes how you compare to others rather than whether or not you are achieving your own goals. The quality of your existence is now transformed into a contest rather than your own journey. This tendency starts at a young age.

Dare to Live by Bryan Golden When elementary school students are handed back their corrected tests or homework, the room is abuzz as each student looks to see what grade the other students received. In school and in life, someone else’s success or failure has no bearing on you whatsoever. You pay so much attention to what other people are doing that you neglect your own life. Feelings of deficiency, envy, jealousy, frustration, and even sadness often follow your assessment of how much better other people are living. There are several flaws to this comparison. Other people have a tendency to project their lives as being better than they actually are. They show only the good while leaving out all of their problems. What

your life or your happiness is not dependent on the perception of other people or the manner in which they lead their lives. Never be jealous of how someone else is living. You rarely see the problems they have to deal with and most likely wouldn’t want to trade your problems for theirs. There is frequently much more going on behind the scenes than you could ever imagine. Pay attention to your life. You don’t need approval. It’s not a competition. Following your own individual path is what’s important. Pay attention to what’s going on today and every day in your own life. Take whatever action is necessary to stay on your path.

they display is not necessarily true or accurate. In short, appearances are rarely what they seem. While you are fixated on others, your life is passing you by. You are not in competition with anyone. It doesn’t matter what they are doing. There is no need to attempt to impress other people. Even if you do, what have you accomplished? Most of the time, no one cares anyway. You pay attention to your life by understanding where you are, how you feel, what you want to do, and where you would like to be. You sacrifice time and effort you should be spending on your life by devoting too much attention to others. You don’t need fame, notoriety, or adulation in order to be happy. The proof is the many people who are in the public spotlight and yet are very unhappy. Ironically, many of these individuals long for privacy and openly express the desire to be left alone. How would you conduct your life if no one were watching? The answer to this question points to what you should be paying attention to right now. The quality of

History revealed of Ohio Civil War prison Northwest Ohio is home to the only Union Army Civil War prison specifically designed to house captured Confederate officers. Johnson’s Island Civil War Prison, located near Marblehead, continues to reveal tantalizing details about the war and the men who served on both sides. The Hayes Presidential Center’s latest exhibit – “Privy to History: Civil War Prison Life Unearthed” – shares information learned from archaeological exploration of the prison site. The exhibit, funded by the Sidney Frohman Foundation and the Friends & Descendants of Johnson’s Island Civil War Prison, opened May 1 and continues through Jan. 4, 2015. “Privy to History: Civil War Prison Life Unearthed” advances the history of Johnson’s Island with facts uncovered since the 1965 publication of “Rebels on Lake Erie” – the seminal history of the prison written by Charles E. Frohman. Through a collaboration with David R. Bush, Ph.D. of Heidelberg0 University’s Center for Historic & Military Archaeology, a display of numerous artifacts recovered from the site during excavations of the prison latrines are included in the exhibit. An episode of the History Channel’s “History Detectives” is included in the exhibit. It explores the amazing story of a particular Confederate officer who fashioned a camera from tin cans in order to take photographs of his fellow prisoners. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $7.50-adults, $6.50- seniors

Visitors to the Toledo Zoo will have a dynamic new exhibit to enjoy, starting Friday, May 23. Visitors will be able to walk through the all-new Penguin Beach exhibit, located near the historic Aquarium, and catch a view of penguins on three sides. Nearby, a “wall of water” will offer expanded underwater viewing. The exhibit’s new location, near the playground at Primate Forest, also offers the zoo’s youngest visitors greater interaction with these charismatic birds. The zoo is increasing the size of its penguin flock – more correctly called a colony – and the new birds have already started arriving: four females and one male. They are completing a 30-day quarantine at Penguin Beach’s off-exhibit holding quarters. Penguin Beach is not the only new exhibit of 2014. Flamingo Key, sponsored by Toledo Express Airport, also opens May 23. Near the zoo’s Broadway entrance, a new free-flight parakeet exhibit is being finalized. ‘Keet Retreat, sponsored by BP, allows visitors to enjoy these colorful, friendly members of the parrot family in a fun encounter unlike anything else in the region. As the May 23-25 Opening Weekend Celebration approaches, sponsored by Kroger, updates will be shared at

Black Swamp Mud Runs offer down `n dirty fun Adrenaline Rush Sports, LLC is partnering with the Ottawa County Fairgrounds and a number of other local businesses to make NW Ohio the home to a premier, permanent obstacle mud run course. The Black Swamp Mud Run Course, located at the fairgrounds in Oak Harbor, is one of only a few permanent obstacle courses in the country. A permanent course allows the obstacles to be bigger, more rugged and more numerous than the temporary courses, which are often dragged from city to city, set up in different venues, and torn down the day after the run. Not a mud runner? Not a runner at all? The course and events are designed for anyone to run, athlete and non-athlete alike. Runners must be older than 11 years of age and able to run or walk. There may

be experienced mud runners striving for their best time, and non-athletes, walking and having a good time. Runners can take breaks half way through or at every obstacle, or they can hit it hard throughout the course. What is a mud run? Think about adults giving themselves permission to play in the mud again, run an obstacle course, and just get dirty – an opportunity to put stress aside and let off some steam. Too busy in the summer? Run in the spring. Too busy in the spring? Run in the fall. Since the Black Swamp Mud Run Course doesn’t have to travel from venue to venue, it is planning four events to cater to the busiest schedule: • May 17: The Muddiest 911 Run invites fire, EMS, and police to run for bragging rights and their name on all future Muddiest 911 Run race shirts. Participants

can run as a team or individual; run for time or just for fun or run with friends for the service of your choice. • June 21: The Fund Runner – support a cause and have fun doing it. Runners can raise funds or awareness for their favorite charities or causes. • Aug. 2 and 3: The Black Swamp Dirty Dash. • Oct. 10 and 11: The Night of the Dead Run. One of the few night runs in the country, held a few nights after the full moon. Traveling or thinking of inviting friends who will have to travel? The Ottawa County Fairgrounds has on-premise camping to make it a full adventure weekend. Area hotels are also offering discounted lodging. Don’t want to get muddy? Spectators can see almost 85 percent of the course from the grandstand viewing area or from

the sidelines. With plenty of vendors and entertainment, spectators will have a great time watching the run. Visit for links to each race, links for registering, information for volunteers and sponsors, and race prep suggestions.

A Wild Time for Mom Bring Mom to the Toledo Zoo for Mother’s Day, sponsored by Mercy. All moms receive free admission when accompanied by one or more children, only on Sunday, May 11. A Mother’s Day brunch will be offered in the historic Lodge. Times, prices and menu details are available at mothersday. The outing fills fast; reserve a place early by calling 419-385-5721, ext. 6001. (advance reservations only).

A recepƟon in honor of the years of service of former Chief Bruce Moritz will be held Thursday, May 8 8:15 pm following the regular Fire Board meeƟng at Allen-Clay Joint Fire District Headquarters 3155 N. Genoa-Clay Center Rd. (across from Genoa Schools)

Pro anglers win $73,780 catch

H2 O Tae Kwon Do Tumbling & Cheer Dance

Pro-angler Dan Stier brought in a twoday total of 84.67 pounds of walleye to win the pro-angler category of the season-opening event for the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour (NWT) at Trenton, Mich. on April 2526. After a strong showing on day one, Stier went into day two in second place and fought off the competition to take home a total of $73,780 in cash and prizes. Heading back to Lake Erie and the same productive water he fished on day one, Stier endured a 37-mile ride in 4- and 5-foot waves to the North Bass Island area. Stier and his co-angler partner tried a few spots unsuccessfully before they found the winning fish along the north reef. “We caught 18 fish over seven pounds and six over 28 inches in a matter of about an hour,” said Stier. “Yesterday all the fish were set up on the south reef. Today they were tucked up against the north reef.” With years of experience on Lake Erie, Stier knew the walleyes were biting on spinners. He focused his efforts on 18 to 22 feet of water with spinner rigs set 25 to 35 feet back. “The spinner bite was so strong I stuck with it all week. The key for me was that I was going super slow - like .7 to .8 mph. If I went over 1 mph I wouldn’t hardly get bite,” Stier said. First day leader Brian Bjorkman brought in a disappointing 34.43-pound bag of fish on day two to fall back to ninth place. Stier took home over $73,000 in cash and prizes, including a new Ranger 620VS with a 250 hp Evinrude motor. Second-place finisher on the pro side, Ronnie Rhodes, of Sheffield, Ohio, moved up from seventh place with his day two bag of 42.85 pounds, earning him $17,124. Fishing on the west side of North Bass Island, Rhodes ran crankbaits 20 and 22 feet over 32-35 feet of water. “I used Off Shore planer boards and had 80 feet out on the outside boards and 120 feet out on the inside boards,” said Rhodes. “Eighty would get me down to 20 feet and 120 would get me to 22. On both days speed was everything. I trolled faster with my crankbaits - 1.3 to 1.5 mph.” Known for his abilities to fish river systems, Bill Shimota, of Northfield, Minn., opted instead for the big waters of Lake

Erie. The angler’s second stringer of 42.75 pounds propelled him from eighth place to a final day third-place finish. The angler added Ranger and Evinrude contingency winnings for a combined total of $16,959. Brett King (fourth), Bob Henton (fifth), Rick Olson (sixth), Tom Kemos (seventh), Pat Byle (eighth), Brian Bjorkman (ninth) and Nick Schertz (tenth) round out the top 10 pro-anglers. After signing up late to the event and being put on the waiting list, first-place co-angler John Hoyer, of Orono, Minn., received a call from the NWT to let him know he could compete. Competing in his first NWT event, Hoyer paired up with Ryan Buddie for the first day and brought 43.34 pounds to the scales. Day two, Hoyer paired with pro-angler Steve Miller. Their weight of 42.58 was enough for Hoyer to eclipse the 84.92 mark set by second-place co-angler Chris Hammond. The angler took home $7,085 and a quite a bit more experience. “Winning is great, but I think I doubled my walleye knowledge with four days of pre-fishing and two days of tournament fishing,” said Hoyer. “You would just never learn this much if you’re not in a tournament scenario. I got to pre-fish with Dusty Minke, Korey Sprengel and Bill Shimota. Watching them put it all together was fun.” Chris Hammond (second), Chuck Jones (third), Chuck Jones (fourth), Jeff Felhaber (fifth), Joshua Olson (sixth), Richard Landerschier (seventh), Bret Rogers (eighth), Jason Maraskine (ninth) and Chris Schmitt (tenth) round out the top 10 co-anglers. The next stop for the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour is the Missouri River event at Mobridge, S.D., June 27-28. Registrations for the event are already being accepted online and by calling 612-424-0708. Anglers who are participating in any of the numerous contingency prize programs are encouraged to submit all pertinent information before the event to remain eligible for any potential bonus money. For more details, anglers are encouraged to call 612-424-0708 or check out the new website at www.nationalwalleyetour. com.
