Traffic camera contract is headed for defeat By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Northwood City Council on May 9 will decide whether or not to keep automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras at two intersections. As of The Press’s deadline on Thursday, May 2, the vote is expected to be 4-3 against the cameras. Council approved a contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., of Arizona, in 2005 to install and operate the cameras at the intersections of Woodville and Lemoyne roads, and Wales and Oregon roads. The current three year contract with the company expired on April 23. The city and Redflex share a percentage of the revenue from traffic citations issued as a result of the cameras, which have caught thousands of motorists speeding or going through red lights since they were installed. Fines are $110. Violators do not get points on their licenses In 2010, Councilmen Jim Barton, Mike Myers, Connie Hughes, and Dave Gallaher voted in favor of renewing the contract, while Councilmen Ed Schimmel, Dean Edwards, and Randy Kozina were opposed. This time, Barton is not in favor of renewing the contract. His swing vote will put an end to the operation of the cameras. Barton told The Press that he is now opposed because the “rationale for the cameras has gone from safety to revenue.” “My support for the cameras was based on assurances that the revenue would be used for safety,” said Barton. “However, I now feel that we are in a situation where the camera revenue is being used more as a revenue source than for safety.” He cited as an example the city’s purchase of a salt dome for $211,395 with Redflex funds. “I can assure you that we would have put salt on our roads with or without that dome,” he said. “It becomes a concern when the wants become more important than the needs.” Edwards agrees. The cameras, he said, is “looked at as a money maker for the city.” In addition, he believes some motorists avoid the intersections, which in turn hurt business. “I believe they have chased Woodville Road traffic away, which could be a factor in the lack of business on Woodville Road,”

Bill 69 would ban traffic cameras By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

A proposed bill with bi-partisan support in the Ohio Legislature would, if passed, ban the use of traffic cameras to detect red light and speed limit violations. Rep. Ron Hood, R-Ashville, Rep. Ron Maag, R-Lebanon, and Rep. Dale Mallory, D-Cincinnati, are sponsoring House Bill 69. Hood, in a statement on his website, said the traffic cameras are often installed “as a money-grab for local governments.” “The primary purpose of issuing fines should be to punish people who violate the law, not as a source or revenue,” stated Hood. He cited studies that showed accidents increased at some intersections where cameras are installed. “A 2004 study conducted by North Carolina A&T State University…found no change in single accidents and large increases in rear-end crashes and many other types of crashes relative to other intersections,” he stated.

The legislators introduced the bill soon after a Hamilton County Common Pleas Court judge ruled in March that speed enforcement cameras in Elmwood Place, a small village of about 2,000 in southwest Ohio, violated citizens’ due process rights. Judge Robert Ruehlman, in his ruling, stated that the cameras are not calibrated by a certified police officer, but rather by the company that owns the cameras, which has a financial stake in the game. “It is a scam that the motorists can’t win. The entire case against the motorists is stacked because the speed monitoring device is controlled by the company,” said Ruehlman in his ruling. Supporters of the cameras are fighting back. The Traffic Safety Coalition issued a statement last month urging legislators to oppose House Bill 69. The group noted there were several cities in Ohio that saw a reduction in crashes due to the use of traffic cameras. One of the cities cited was Toledo, which saw a 39 percent reduction in fatal red light running crashes. “State leaders should be encouraging

more cities to use cameras as a tool to reduce injury and death on our roadways,” stated the group. Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner, who is fighting council to keep traffic cameras at two intersections, said he plans to lobby the Legislature to defeat the bill. Although some opponents of the cameras have cited studies showing the cameras in some communities may increase accidents at intersections, local statistics show the cameras lower the accident rate in Northwood. Stoner and former Administrator Pat Bacon were successful years ago when they traveled to Columbus after learning that Congress had withdrew funding for the Wales Road overpass project. They were able to get support from the Transportation Review Advisory Council, which pledged to cover the shortfall in funding. If council renews its contract for the traffic cameras, Stoner said he will go to Columbus with Administrator Bob Anderson and Police Chief Tom Cairl to oppose House Bill 69. “I would give it a shot,” said Stoner. “You got to make your voice heard.”

Choraliers plan “Celebration Across Nation� By Tammy Walro Press Entertainment Editor The Choraliers will present “Celebration Across the Nation,� May 9, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. at Fassett Middle School, 3025 Starr Ave., Oregon. The show will feature songs and dances sure to entertain audience members of all ages. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for children under 10. Tickets for groups of 10 or more are more are $6 and are available in advance from any Choralier member; at James Optical and Beth Allen Flowers in Oregon and at Urban Flowers in Rossford. Tickets will also be available at the door. Proceeds from the performance will benefit the Choraliers’ scholarship fund for area students planning to further their education in the fine art of music. In their 56year history, the Choraliers have given more than $50,000 in student scholarships. The Choraliers will also be holding fundraisers in the coming months to help pay for a trip to New York City next year. The group recently learned it has been invited to participate in a performance of Handel’s “Messiah� at Lincoln Center as part of a Thanksgiving Weekend concert being presented in 2014 by Distinguished Concerts International (DCINY) New York City. The concert will feature outstanding musicians and choristers performing Thomas Beecham/Eugene Goossens’ 1959 re-orchestration of “Messiah� for full symphony orchestra. The invitation to audition for the performance came as a surprise to the group, according to director Mary Ann Siefke. “Normally, groups apply, however we were contacted by the company,� she said. “A young man, Jason Mlynek, who is from Oregon and was a Choraliers scholarship winner some years ago, now works for DCINY and he suggested us. “However, there is an audition process that we had to go through to be selected,� Siefke said. “The Choraliers received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers,� said Dr. Jonathan Griffith, artistic director

East Toledo

Ironwood group to host festival The Ironwood Peacock/Co-op Community Organization will hold a neighborhood festival this summer to celebrate families and the history of the East Toledo neighborhood. Mary Wilson, founder and president of the Ironwood/Peacock organization, said the festival will be held Friday and Saturday, August 23-24, at the Edgar Holmes Park, located in the 1200 block of Ironwood. On Friday, a “Meet and Greet� with musical entertainment will be held at the park from 6-9 p.m. Members are currently organizing a rally that will take place prior to the opening ceremonies to be held at noon on Saturday, said Wilson. “We are putting together a rally to try to help raise awareness of the importance of having a strong family structure as well as to help strengthen and support families in the area,� Wilson said. “We are hoping to march from Waite High School to Edgar Holmes Park on that day.� Wilson has been in contact with the East Toledo Family Center, the Self Expression Teen Theater, Harbor Behavioral Health Services and other community organizations in order to bring in information for families to use for services and support, she said. “We are especially concerned for families who have lost a family member to gun and/or gang violence,� Wilson said. “We want them to know they have not been forgotten and that there is support out here for them. We want them to be able to heal and grab hold of and live a more productive life. Hopefully, the rally will also allow them to bond with others who are going through the same things.� The festival will feature entertainment throughout the day on Saturday. Dee Jay Amy and Fast Eddie will be providing musical entertainment as well as Julian Thomas, Ironwood native Dizzy D. Brown, Tracy Hayes and Allen Everett. There will be food and games for children as well as “give-a-ways� for families, Wilson said. The organization will also be selling soul food dinners to help raise funds to purchase lawn equipment. “We take care of our own vacant lots in the neighborhood,� Wilson said. “We had 50 kids between the ages of 11 and 15 looking for some kind of work to do last year. We had them cut grass, pull weeds, pick up trash, etc. in order to keep them busy and to earn a small stipend. Our equipment has lasted us many years, but we have burned out the mowers. We are trying to be selfsufficient and independent in Ironwood. We try not to depend on or wait for the city to do things.� The organization would also like to develop a summer program and maybe an af-

ter school program with funds raised from the dinners. “If you keep kids busy, you can keep the vandalism and crime down,� Wilson said. “If kids have too much idle time, that is when they will find negative things to do. We want to help support a strong family unit and teach the kids what it is to have neighborhood pride at the same time.� The soul food dinners will include greens, fried chicken, barbecue ribs with

Ernestine Wilborn-Flagg’s famous barbecue sauce, and corn bread. Homemade ice cream will be sold from 4-5 pm. Homemade cakes will also be available. “We are hoping that former residents will come here with their families, set up a picnic or a table in front of where they used to live and just enjoy coming back to the neighborhood to see old friends,� Wilson said. “I have lived here 56 years and I know what it used to be and I have a vision of what it can be. We have so much potential here; we just need the resources to help. I believe in the neighborhood. I do see a better tomorrow. I love my neighborhood and don’t want to be anywhere else.� Wilson said she is also hoping that the seven generations of the Classy Steppers can reunite during the festival.

Abduction attempt Reports of two attempted abductions April 29 in the Curtice area of Ottawa County are being investigated by the sheriff’s department. According to the department, the first incident occurred on Reiman Road and involved a nine-year-old female, who was approached by a suspect in a black four-door vehicle. The suspect opened the trunk from inside the car but sped south on Reiman after seeing the girl’s mother running toward her. He is described as a white male between the ages of 60 and 70 with gray hair and a scruffy gray beard. The second incident occurred on Front Street in Curtice where four girls were walking and were approached by a man in a similar vehicle, possibly an SUV. The girls, ranging in age from 12 to 16, told sheriff’s deputies the man demanded they get into the vehicle. The girls ran but also described the suspect as an older white male with grey hair and a scruffy beard. The suspect proceeded eastbound on Front Street. The sheriff’s department said extra patrols will remain the area to try to locate the man.

Traffic cameras headed for defeat he said. Edwards is also not pleased that Redflex receives a bigger percentage of the fines than the city. “A majority of ticket money goes out of state,” he said. Schimmel agrees. “This money is wealth that is never to return to Northwest Ohio. In the end, the city receives a fraction of what it would have otherwise received on a properly issued traffic citation,” said Schimmel. Improves safety Supporters of the cameras say they are a deterrent to speeding and running red lights, and that revenue from the fines has funded many safety improvement projects in the city. “I personally do not like Redflex,” said Gallaher. “I don’t think it’s sneaky or underhanded. We’ve done everything we can to let people know it’s there. We’ve spent money out of Redflex revenue to put speed limit signs on Woodville Road to let them know it’s there. And there’s been enough press about the cameras. But people still get caught by Redflex. The chief assures us it is making a difference. Just because of the schools at the Woodville Road intersection, I would like to see them stay a little while.” Hughes agrees. “It’s a heavily traveled intersection, and a school zone,” said Hughes. The Northwood Local Schools District has begun the process of working with the Ohio School Facilities Commission to create a master plan that could include new or renovated facilities. One of the possibilities, if approved by the school board, is construction of a new building near the Woodville Road intersection. “If there is a new pre-K through 12 building at that site, there would be more traffic with construction and trucks going in and out. I don’t know if that’s going to happen or not. But that’s a possibility. It’s just going to become more of a need if that project, in fact, comes to fruition in the future,” said Hughes. The cameras are also changing the be-

havior of motorists. It is common to see vehicles’ brake lights suddenly appear as motorists approach the intersections. “I go through that intersection at least twice a day to work,” Hughes said of the camera at Woodville and Lemoyne roads. “Ever since Redflex has been there, I don’t have to be so afraid when the light changes and it’s time for me to go out into the intersection. People are now aware it’s there. They’re slowing down.” “That’s what we want,” said Police Chief Tom Cairl. “If you do slow down, and you have an accident, it won’t be a severe accident.” He credits the cameras for decreasing the accident rate at both intersections in the last several years. “We’re one of the few communities in the area that has not had any fatal accidents in five years,” he said. In addition, the cameras free up police officers who would be monitoring the intersections to respond to more pressing needs in the community, he said. “We’re still down three officers from the recession. It’s like having 2 officers there 24 hours per day, seven days per week,” said Cairl. Fewer accidents The cameras should stay, said Meyers, because they have helped reduce the number of accidents. “If the police chief tells us it’s one of his tools, and the intersections are safer accident-wise, then we should not go against what he’s saying. He’s a department head,” said Meyers. “We should keep them. There’s no doubt. If not, we’re not letting the department heads run their departments.”

Schimmel, who has always been vehemently opposed to the cameras, said he doubts they improve safety. The accident rate has been lower on Woodville Road, he believes, because “traffic has been greatly reduced on Woodville Road in the past several years.” “The loss of businesses on Woodville Road has fueled this decrease in traffic,” said Schimmel. “A great number of people have told me that they avoid Northwood to avoid the cameras. With a decrease in the number of cars moving through the intersection, of course the number of accidents has decreased. The number of businesses on Woodville Road has also greatly deceased since the placement of the cameras. I do not believe that this is a coincidence.” Cairl rejects claims that the cameras hurt business, and cites the location of traffic cameras near Westfield Franklin Park Mall as an example. “If that was truly the case, why is Franklin Park thriving. They have cameras near there. If those cameras were causing an issue, then their businesses would suffer,” said Cairl. “Society is getting to the point where the cameras are beneficial for the safety of everyone,” he added. “It’s a voluntary system. If you don’t run red lights, and don’t speed, you won’t get a citation.” In hopes of getting the contract renewed, Stoner plans to propose a compromise, such as lowering the fines and keeping a larger share of the revenue. Gallaher agrees. “Part of public opinion on Redflex is the excessive fine. I think if the cameras are going to stay, we have to address that,” he said. If the contract is not renewed, Cairl said officers will be assigned to monitor the intersections because of the high accident rates before the cameras were installed. “We have to. We already know these violations are occurring on a daily basis,” said Cairl. “It’ll be hard to do because we’re already down three officers. But we’ll do our best.” Councilman Randy Kozina did not return messages to The Press seeking comment.

Variety of projects funded by revenue By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor Northwood has funded numerous safety enhancement projects with revenue collected from automated photo speed and red light enforcement cameras installed at two intersections. Since the cameras were installed in 2005, the city has collected a total of $989,699.18 in fines. “There’s been a lot of good things done with this money,” said Police Chief Tom Cairl. “We can’t protect every citizen 24-7,” said Mayor Mark Stoner. “But if you look at that list, I would think they would say, as a resident, I am better off having that red light camera because it makes the community safer.” Among the safety improvements funded by the cameras: a safety study at Wales/ Tracy roads, compensation earmarked for a police officer who had been scheduled to be laid off, construction of a continuous right turn lane at the Wales and Oregon roads intersection, a speed monitor trailer, diagnosis of inoperable tornado sirens, the purchase of two tornado sirens, court hearings for motorists appealing citations, stop signs, speed limit signs, replacement of police and fire dispatch consoles, software for the police and fire departments, radios, pagers, transfer of school lights from Lark Elementary (which closed) to Lemoyne Road, school zone sign repairs, traffic signal repairs, radio upgrades, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and the construction of a new road salt dome. Former Police Chief Gerald Herman said in 2005 that the cameras would act as a deterrent, changing motorists’ behavior, and improving safety. Revenue, he said, would diminish as a result. Statistics released by Cairl confirm Herman’s prediction. Figures show a huge decrease in traffic camera revenue from 2005, when the city collected $279,597.74. In 2006, revenue dropped to $175,268.06, which Cairl attributes to fewer citations as the result of the construction of the continuous right turn lane from Wales onto Oregon Road. The revenue continued spiraling down to $65,186.09 in 2007, $48,455.42 in 2008, and $36,508.72 in 2009.

But in 2010, revenue climbs to $63,220, then $160,013 in 2011, and $161,452.13 in 2012. The increase in revenue after 2009, said Cairl, is due to technology made available that year that enabled the camera to enforce the 20 mph speed limit in the school zone at the Woodville and Lemoyne roads intersection. “When we got the capability, and the technology came of age, we were able to enforce the school zone times,” he said. The 20 mph speed limit ran from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. during the week. The speed limit at that intersection the rest of the day is 35 mph. Cairl said he was able to get council’s approval to purchase another set of blinking yellow lights to get motorists to comply

with the 20 mph speed limit. “I was trying to educate people that there are two sets of lights blinking at you as you’re coming into a school zone. Please slow down to 20 mph,” said Cairl. Camera revenue was used to purchase the lights. “We still get people who want to fly through there. You can’t stop in time if you’re driving faster than 20 mph and a kid walks out in traffic. We just thought it was in the best interests of the children to start enforcing it. That’s why the revenue started going up in 2010: technology came of age and we could enforce the speed limit for the school zone.” Without the camera revenue, the city would not have been able to fund most of those projects, said Stoner.

Indictments returned The Ottawa County Grand Jury has indicted three men on drug trafficking charges. The charges stem from an investigation by the Ottawa County Drug Task Force from December 2012 through March 2013. Glen J. Ward, 27, of Port Clinton, has been indicted on four felony counts of Trafficking in Drugs; Robert Pataki, 18, of Wakeman, has been indicted on three felony counts of Trafficking in Drugs and Roberto Rodriguez, 53, of Port Clinton, has been charged on four felony counts of Trafficking in Drugs, along with misdemeanor charges of Possession of Drugs and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. All three men are being held without bond pending arraignment in the Ottawa County Court of Common Pleas. In addition, Antonio L. Lopez, 35, of Martin, was indicted on two counts of Domestic Violence after an incident in his home in February in which two household members were allegedly assaulted. The charges are felonies of the third degree, citing Lopez’s two prior convictions for Domestic Violence. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Mall lawsuit hearing set

This Week in Government

By Larry Limpf News Editor The parties in a lawsuit filed by the City of Northwood against the owner of the Woodville Mall are to meet next week to schedule a pretrial hearing. The city filed a nuisance abatement complaint in January in Wood County Common Pleas Court seeking to have the deteriorating structure torn down. A May 14 session at 9 a.m. will be used to schedule a pre-trial hearing, according to the case docket. Bob Anderson, city administrator, said last week there has been little contact between the parties except through attorneys. He said the city continues to incur expenses of maintaining retention ponds in the back of the property that collects run-off water from parking areas and the building. “We had to replace one pump and have Toledo Edison drop a power line to the ponds,” he said. “Our main concern is a major storm could cause some flooding back there. The ponds should be pumped at a regulated rate. As a city we can’t just let it go and say it’s not our problem because it is private property.” The city will likely seek reimbursement for its costs by having them added to the site’s property taxes, Anderson said, adding said city officials have also proposed having the ponds and adjacent property donated to

Zoning amendment on meeting agenda By Larry Limpf News Editor

The volunteers are members of "Friends of Maumee Bay State Park." (Press photo by Ken Grosjean) the city. The city’s lawsuit was filed against Soleyman Ghalchi, of Great Neck, New York, who bought the mall for $800,000 in December, and the seller, Mehran Kohansieh, of Little Neck, New York. The complaint contends the building is in violation of fire regulations and health department codes. Anderson said the city’s goal through the lawsuit is to work with the owner and expedite the demolition of the mall. “Our position is the final outcome will be the demolition of the mall,” he said.

“We want to reach an agreement that it will happen sooner rather than later.” Juanita Jones, the former general manager of the mall who’s told city officials she’s representing the new owner, said in February she was scheduling surveys of the asbestos in the building – which would be the first step in its demolition. She couldn’t be reached for comment. With the closing of the Andersons store earlier this year, Sears remains the only operating business at the mall. Its building isn’t part of the city’s lawsuit.

The Wood County Planning Commission on May 7 will consider a request to amend the Webster Township zoning resolution and allow a propane distribution business to operate under a conditional use in an agricultural district. Gregory Bakies has submitted the amendment proposal, which would cover parcels on Routes 105, 582, and 199. Fencing and buffering would be required but the land would remain zoned for agricultural use. The plan commission staff is recommending the commission approve the request. Road closure Benton-Carroll Road will be closed between State Route 2 and Duff Washa Road while crews complete work on the right-of-way. The work, which began recently, will limit traffic to local residents and businesses, buses, and emergency vehicles during restricted hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Ottawa County demolition work on course to meet goal

By Larry Limpf News Editor

All of these combined should put us close to demolishing 17 structures by August 2013. Our goal is 20-22 structures before the end of the year, depending on funding.

After a delayed start due to having to cut through more red tape than originally expected, Ottawa Residential Services, Inc. is on course to meet its goal of having about 20 blighted or abandoned residences demolished this year. Ottawa County received approximately $222,450 through the Moving Ohio Forward Grant Program in which Attorney General Mike DeWine allocated about $75 million statewide to demolish blighted structures. The funding comes from a settlement between state attorneys general and five of the largest mortgage lenders over allegations of foreclosure abuse and deceptive lending practices. Stephanie Lowe, executive director of Ottawa Residential Services, said the agency has overseen the demolition of two homes – one each in Oak Harbor and Bay

Township – and is scheduling the demolition of another five: two in Rocky Ridge and one each in Portage and Bay townships and Oak Harbor. “And we are in the process of collecting bids for the next five structures,” she said. “They include one in Allen Township, one in Portage Township, one in Oak Harbor, and two in Port Clinton. Additionally, we have received clean title searches for one in Clay Township and one in Rocky Ridge. We will be scheduling the asbestos assessments in the upcoming weeks for those two structures.” The county commissioners approved contracts April 23 for demolishing five structures – two each in Port Clinton and the Village of Rocky Ridge and one in the Village of Oak Harbor. The contracts for the Port Clinton structures were awarded to Allen Excavating, Inc. for $6,800 and $7,300 for homes on W. Fremont Road and E. State Road respectively.

Locust Street in Oak Harbor respectively. Lowe said her office is also awaiting the results of title searches for another three properties - two in Danbury Township and one in Clay Township. “All of these combined should put us close to demolishing 17 structures by August 2013,” she said. “Our goal is 20-22 structures before the end of the year, depending on funding” The attorney general’s office began accepting the first round of grant applications in May 2012. Demolition work is to be completed by December 31, 2013 and a final report of demolitions and land reutilization is required by December 31, 2014. The program does not require a match for the first $500,000 allocated to each county.

Security gets reviewed at court house

Woodville All-Town

By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press The walk-through metal detectors stationed on the third floor of the Ottawa County Courthouse could be moved to the main floor as one measure to tighten security. The suggestion, which was brought up during a recent elected officials meeting, is under review along with other possibilities, county commissioner Jodi Regal said. A survey of safety concerns of all county workers is currently being taken by a subcommittee of the courthouse security committee. Subcommittee members - Sheriff Steve Levorchick and Building and Grounds Supervisor Jim Adkins - are stopping by all county offices to see what worries employees have and to compile a list of options that might be used to combat the issues, Regal said. Heightened security is on the minds of many after a number of recent incidents, Prosecutor Mark Mulligan said. The killings of a Colorado warden prison; a Texas district attorney and his wife and an assistant prosecutor in his Kaufman County office already had government offices on edge earlier this year. Then the Boston Marathon bombings renewed fears that surged in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks that killed thousands. Closer to home, the Ottawa County Job and Family Services office received two threatening calls in the past month and a fired factory worker was arrested at a plant near the Community Resource Center on State Route 163 after he returned to the site with weapons, Mulligan said. Still others in the community are reeling from the deadly domestic dispute last month. A former county worker remains hospitalized in Toledo after he allegedly shot and killed his estranged wife at her sister’s home in Carroll Township home. He shot himself twice in the head but lived. Relocation of the metal detectors at the main doors is a safeguard suggestion many seem to believe may deter problems, Regal said. The two metals detectors were installed several years ago on the third floor of the courthouse. One sits at the entrance to the courtroom, judge’s office and probation department. The other leads to the county clerk’s office, juvenile court, annex courtrooms and the sheriff’s office. They were installed through a partnership with the common pleas court and the Ohio Supreme Court, Mulligan said. The higher court, the prosecutor explained, maintains a commitment to court security. Maintaining that security is one of the considerations that will be reviewed with others including Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters, said the prosecutor.

Chipping away To the editor: Like it or not, the United States Constitution is the law of our land. Our Founding Fathers knew that to preserve this great experiment called America, the God-given right of its citizenry to self-defense should not be infringed. As such, they must be afforded ready access to the latest and greatest technology of their time. Don’t take my word for it; spend time reading the Federalist Papers and learn from the likes of John Jay, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, et al. To say that the Second Amendment was written without considering AK-47 rifles is to say the First Amendment was written without considering email and the Internet. Ridiculous. The National Rifle Association (NRA) is doing what their dues-paying members have asked them to do – protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners, and by doing so, every law-abiding citizen in this great nation – to the greatest extent possible. Compare their mission to “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” approximately 900 mayors who wish to take more of our freedom and liberty away in the name of public safety. The tragedy encountered when mass-shootings take place – most recently at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. - should be our warning against such a false premise. Sorry Mayor Bloomberg, but I’ll cast my vote and write my check for freedom every time. Speaking of Sandy Hook, Ms. Schiavone wondered in her letter to The Press just last week, “where in the Second Amendment are the rights of those 20 children and teachers killed in Newtown?” The answer is simple: the Second Amendment is their right. The federal government – once again in the interest of public safety – stripped those teachers, administrators, students, etc. of their Second Amendment right by declaring all public school campuses to be gunfree zones. And so it goes, the law-abiding citizens are left to fear for their lives while someone with no regard for such a sign in the school window carries out an unspeakable atrocity before taking his own life. More gun laws from government only lead to more gun laws broken by a criminal. Placing further restrictions on law-abiding

Cleanup a success To the editor: The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Village-Wide Cleanup was held Saturday April 27. We had more than 50 volunteers come out to help clean up the downtown area, and we would like to recognize the following groups for their commitment: Oak Harbor Apple Festival Royalty Court; fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade middle school students; the Oak Harbor High School baseball team and the Oak Harbor High School football team.We would also like to thank Community Markets for the use of their Dumpsters; the Village of Oak Harbor for donating trash bags and National Bank of Ohio for donating gloves for the event. Nearly three-quarters of a Dumpster was filled on Saturday morning with trash that is no longer on our streets. Everyone needs to do his or her part to help keep our small town beautiful. Valerie Winterfield Executive Director, Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce

Depriving township To the editor: My father was fired from the Jerusalem Township as its fire chief. It’s not that the township trustees made up a law that contradicts the actual law for citizens on emergency scenes that upsets me. It’s not the insurance agency that says it is not a liability and that all fire departments are covered for just that sort of scenario that ruffles my feathers. Or that before they made these accusations that they never bothered to contact our township’s insurance agent, Mrs. French to ask.


Charlotte Mullins Walbridge “I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii. I would like that very much because of the weather and the beauty.”

It’s not that they declined to hire on two separate occasions the ex-firefighter in question without explanation. It’s not that in my adult life, I couldn’t enjoy an adult beverage with my father since, as he always said, “I need to be ready in case the tones go off.” I don’t get angry for the lack of appreciation that the three guys have for the business lost at our company because of the numerous hours spent in devotion to the fire department or to the free repairs done at our shop – from township tractors to the snowplows. I have even come to terms with the many events in my childhood, like sporting events my father missed because of something to do with the fire department. But my blood boils every time I hear those tones go off and my father doesn’t sprint to his truck and take off. Because of three people, the citizens of our township have one fewer person in a volunteer department not coming to their aid. And not just a simple volunteer firefighter, I might add. They are depriving our citizens of a man with 30 years of experience – a fulltime firefighter in the city of Toledo who sees more fires in one night then our township sees in a year. An instructor from everything to firefighting to building collapse. Certified in public safety diving, weapons of mass destruction, USAR, CERT, and countless others. Nope, what makes me downright upset is that our township trustees put countless lives needlessly in danger every day. Brian Stanton Son of former Jerusalem Township Fire Chief Harry Stanton

Missing cane sought To the editor: While working at a rummage sale at Northwood Church of God on Thursday, April 25, I leaned my beautiful purple cane against the wall so I could put some books away. At 9 a.m., the doors were opened and my purple cane was gone within minutes. The cane was very precious to me because it belonged to a friend who had passed away. If the person who took my cane would

Use existing properties

To the editor: I’m very saddened to hear Alcore Senior, LLC, wants to tear up the field at Seaman and S. Coy roads in Oregon instead of choosing old properties with buildings just sitting empty and need of renovation or demolition. The field they want to destroy could be used for organic, healthy food for people, birds, animals and wildlife. The environmentalists are so against drilling for oil in the U.S., yet they don’t seem to care at all about all the schools, stores and other types of buildings built on wild habitat and farmlands instead of places with dilapidated structures in the cities or suburbs. Instead of building on farmlands and natural habitats, people should use their brains to figure out good, safe, beautiful ways to successfully rebuild our cities and suburbs. For example, why don’t they tear down the Great Eastern empty buildings on Woodville Road and put the senior complex there? I think that would be a wonderful location for something like that. Thank you Dollar Tree stores and Rite Aid pharmacy for putting your stores in properties that were already used for commercial businesses. You are good neighbors and caring citizens. Glenda P. Burnat Toledo

Movin’ on up? To the editor: I feel like I’m living in the sitcom, “The Jeffersons,” because Oregon is “movin’ on up.” We’re getting a new coffee shop, two new service stations, a sub station, another dollar store and a Goodwill store, and a used car lot. I can’t believe the progress our council are making. Are you kidding me? Can’t we do better than this? Well, at least we’re not getting another bank – yet. John Gray Oregon

Largest park yet

Metroparks board OKs funds for new park in Jerusalem Twp. The newest and largest Metropark in the Toledo area is expected to open in Jerusalem Township in three to five years, if the park system can maintain its “ambitious” development schedule. The park, located on the current Howard Farms property, will be unlike any other Metropark, Tim Schetter, Ph.D., director of natural resources for the Metroparks of the Toledo Area, said last week. “This is unique to the Metroparks in that there are coastal aspects to it and it will be largely a wetlands’ restoration project.” The property—nearly 1,000 acres—is located just south of Reno Beach and west of Metzger Marsh. It will create a nearly eight-mile continuous stretch of public lands that includes Metzger Marsh, Ottawa Wildlife Refuge, Crane Creek State Park and Magee Marsh. Throw in Maumee Bay State Park and Cedar Point Wildlife Refuge to the west and 11,687 acres of unique wetlands are or will be preserved for waterfowl habitat and our enjoyment. The land, currently a working farm, was purchased with two partners in 2008 for $6 million. Dr. Schetter said the Ohio Division of Wildlife contributed $3 million; the Clean Ohio Fund $1.8 million and the Metroparks’ land acquisition fund $1.2 million. This is the single largest purchase in Metroparks’ history both in acreage and cost. Naturally, the partnership came with caveats. Two of them are that some portion must be open to hunting and no more than 20 percent of the land can be developed into buildings and trails. The Metroparks’ board voted at its April board meeting to retain Smith Group/ JJR from Ann Arbor for $52,375 to collaborate with Ducks Unlimited to develop a park plan. The resolution calls for the two firms to “create habitat enhancements that also create opportunities for fishing, wildlife viewing, small craft boating, hunting, interpretive messaging and research.” Schetter anticipates that Cedar Creek, which is currently pumped dry on the property to allow for farming, will be restored and meander two and half miles through the park before connecting with Ward’s Canal and empty into Lake Erie. A lot of the vegetation common to wetlands will spring up naturally, once water is reintroduced. “The seeds are in the soil and you have to create the right conditions for them to out-compete other seeds,” said Roy Kroll, manager of conservation programs at Ducks Unlimited in Ann Arbor. “It’s not uncom-

The property, nearly 1,000 acres, is located just south of Reno Beach and west of Metzger Marsh. mon for a corn field to go to cattails in one year…We will also create mud flats that, in the spring, and sometimes the fall, will harbor shore birds.” Ducks Unlimited is a national organization whose mission is to create and preserve habitat for North American waterfowl. Habitat will also be created for turtles, snakes and other marsh denizens. Schetter envisions the public will be able to use the new park for hiking, bird watching, hunting, canoeing and kayaking. The creek and canal should be deep and wide enough for small watercraft and, although there is no lake shoreline, access to Lake Erie can be had via Ward’s Canal, the waterway that separates the property from Metzger Marsh. Schetter envisions working

by John Szozda with federal and state officials to provide access to Metzger’s and the marshes and refuges east of it. There will be few structures on the land, a restroom facility for sure, and some interpretative message boards. Public hearings will be held starting as early as next month to determine what you want to see at the park. That informa-

tion will be taken into consideration before plans are drafted. Schetter anticipates plans to be finalized by the end of this year. Schetter said the preliminary estimate for restoration is $4 million. Metroparks and the other partners are looking for grant opportunities to fund the project. The new park could be open to the public in three to five years if this “ambitious” schedule doesn’t hit any snags, Schetter said. A name has not been chosen. “This may be one of the largest farmland-to-coastal wetland restorations in many decades and the chance to restore the natural stream channel is an exciting and rare opportunity,” Kroll said.

Are you unknowingly living your life as a human garbage truck? A garbage truck travels its route stopping at every garbage can and dumping the contents into the truck. The truck continues until it is full and can’t hold any more garbage. Then it goes to the dump in order to empty all of the garbage it has collected. You can behave as a garbage truck. This happens when you pick up and store mental garbage on a regular basis. Unlike the garbage truck, you don’t often empty the accumulation and may even carry it around with you for a lifetime. As a result, you get bogged down as your mental garbage accumulates. Continuous refuse accumulation results in numerous negative impacts. Elevated stress levels, moodiness, sadness, anger, eating and sleep disorders, ulcers, high blood pressure, and headaches are just some of the manifestations. You will find and pick up trash everywhere. Worries, bad experiences, opinions of others, criticism, insecurities, doubt, fear, and uncertainties are some examples of the mental litter gathered and stored. Obviously, the best way to deal with mental garbage is to avoid picking it up in the first place. Most of the stuff you get

Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden bogged down with isn’t worth any attention at all. Worries are a perfect example. Worry is like being in a rocking chair. It’s a lot of activity that doesn’t get you anywhere. Don’t waste time worrying. Instead, either take action or let it go. Worries lead to fears which cause you to project the worst possible outcome. This is a precarious situation because your mind tends to attract whatever it’s fixated on. When you carry around fears, you are focused on your fears. You have created the probability of a self-fulfilling prophecy which will reinforce your fears. Letting go of your worries helps you release your fears. Additionally, you should replace your fears with an ideal mental vision of whatever result you would like to have happen. This directs your mind to at-

tract what you want instead of what you are afraid of. Bad experiences also weigh you down. You carry around all of the negative effects of the emotions you felt. As a result, these experiences accumulate, acting as an anchor rather than as learning experiences. Stored bad experiences cause you to become skittish, limiting your ability to move forward. Analyze your bad experiences. Determine the cause along with what you could have done differently. Use this information to become wiser. It’s impossible to live a mistake free life. Your objective is to avoid repeating the same errors. Criticism from other people is added to the mental garbage you carry around. You fret over any negative comments you receive. Your hurt feelings create emotional pain. You then try to conform to what you think will be accepted in order to avoid future criticism. You change course to meet others’ expectations rather than your own. This reaction bogs you down. It’s a no win situation. You are unhappy because either you are not following your path or you are not being accepted. The only way

to jettison this mental garbage is to live life on your terms without worrying about or seeking anyone else’s approval. Uncertainty about the future clogs your mind, preventing you from enjoying the present. Squandering today by fretting about tomorrow accomplishes nothing for today or tomorrow. Unless you break out of this cycle, your days will be needlessly filled with stress. Each day must be treasured by appreciating all the blessings in your life. The foundation for tomorrow is built by appreciating today. Today is when you take action to prepare for tomorrow. Now is the perfect time to purge your mental garbage. Once you clear your mind, don’t start picking up new trash. You have much more important things to focus on. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book.

Chateau Tebeau earns “Double Gold” in wine competition By Tammy Walro Press Entertainment Editor Chateau Tebeau Winery, located in Helena, was awarded a Double Gold Medal for their Maison Rouge (a sweet red blend of Concord, Niagara and Ives) at the 2013 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, held March 23-24 in Rochester, N.Y. The competition, which is open to all commercial wineries from all wine-producing countries, is known as the world’s largest charitable wine competition. In this year’s competition, a record 3,502 wines were entered from 880 wineries, 20 countries and all 50 United States. The competition judges awarded 100 Double Gold, 174 Gold, 1,204 Silver and 1,327 Bronze Medals. Award-winning wines were featured at several public events following the competition, including the FLIWC Dinner & Auction held at the Rochester Plaza Hotel to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times, a not-forprofit organization dedicated to improving quality of life for children and families worldwide whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life-threatening challenges. Double Gold is awarded when all judges unanimously agree that the wine is worth a gold medal. The honor came as a surprise to Bob and Mary Tebeau, owners of the winery, which is located at 525 SR 635. “We found out through an email from one of our fellow local wineries,” Mary said. “One of the winemakers there sent us an email with ‘Double Gold’ in the sub-

Apparently he had seen the list of winners on the Internet. “When I saw the email, I thought they had won, but instead, they were congratulating us for our award,” she said. “We were ecstatic to have produced a wine that met the Double Gold standard.” The Tebeaus foray into the business began with Bob’s love for making his own wines at home. The winery’s name – Chateau Tebeau – came from a label Mary developed back in the 1980s for Bob’s wine. “It sounded good and we all got a laugh out

of it. Little did we know at the time that circumstances and lifestyle changes would lead us to create the Chateau Tebeau Vineyard and Winery,” she said. The pair have studied wine by visiting many wineries and picking up tips and ideas from other winemakers who share a mutual love of the industry. They enhance their expertise by attending classes on viticulture and enology. In 2008, they had the first planting of the vineyards on their property. A year later, they started construction of a tasting room.

The business opened Jan. 9, 2010, serving the first glasses of wine to their neighbors and friends. Last year, in a major expansion, production equipment was moved to a new 60 x 60 building behind the winery, allowing for the old production room to be converted into an expanded seating area featuring a bar that is accessible from inside and out. In addition to a wide selection of wine, including whites, reds and fruit wines, Chateau Tebeau offers cheese plates, appetizers, Panini sandwiches, a house salad, soup de jour and cheesecake. Entertainment is offered Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. A complete schedule is available at Chateau Tebeau’s hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11 a.m.-7 p.m. (May-August), Thursday and Friday 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Saturday 2-10 p.m. Other times by appointment.

Oregon man heading to Big Apple for NFL debut By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Eric Herman is headed to the Big Apple. New York City is 560 miles from Herman’s hometown, Oregon, and 525 miles from Ohio University in Athens, where Herman has played on the offensive line for the past five years. He hopes New York is his next permanent residence for, say, the next decade. The Central Catholic graduate was selected by the New York Giants in the seventh round of the NFL draft last Saturday. He was the 19th pick of the round and the 225th player selected overall. He is one of two Oregon natives (Michigan safety Jordan Kovacs) to be drafted or sign free agent contracts to the NFL. Herman, who is just over 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds, said going through the draft process last week was “an awesome experience.” “I was home with my family, down in the basement,” he said. “It was awesome that the majority of guys I trained with got the call. I was excited I was part of that group that got picked. I was a little nervous at times, but I had faith in myself and what I did in my career. I’m excited to be a Giant and get to New York and lace up and do the best I can. Hopefully, I can make the roster and I hope I get to play. It’s a very hard road ahead of me, but I’m really excited.” Last season Herman, a fifth-year senior, started every game at right guard for the Bobcats and earned All-Mid-American Conference second team honors for the second straight year. He finished his career by starting in 51 straight games and helped Ohio U. to its second consecutive bowl victory. Herman posted team highs in pancake blocks (128) and knockdowns (131) last season. Eighteen offensive guards were chosen in last week’s draft, and Herman was the 17th guard chosen. The only other MAC guard picked in the draft was Kent State’s Brian Winters, who went to the New York Jets with the No. 10 pick in the third round.

Ohio lineman Eric Herman leads the Bobcats into battle. (Press file photo courtesy OU SID) Herman became the first OU offensive lineman to be selected in the NFL draft since former Bobcat Al Benton was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round in 1972. Herman said he found out he was going to be chosen by the Giants about three minutes before his name was called on ESPN’s coverage last Saturday, around 4:30 p.m. “I was getting nervous on Saturday, so I turned it off to clear my head and I hung out with my brother-in-law and soon to be brother-in-law,” Herman said. “I started to get calls late, from teams that were going to fight for me. This was my round, and if the cards fell right, they would pick me up. I’m glad I got to hear my name called. I wanted to be drafted and I wanted to continue in my sport. I feel like I’ve accomplished something right now.”

Herman, who said he has never been to New York City, said he spoke with Giants coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Jerry Reese last Saturday afternoon. “Coach Coughlin told me they’re excited to pick me up and was surprised I was still there,” Herman said. “They said I was a good pick for them. I talked to my new offensive line coach (Pat Flaherty) a little bit. He called me back a little bit later and my family was riled up and excited. We tried to get to know each other a little better. I didn’t get time to talk to him at the (NFL) combine. It was really cool to get to know him.” Herman has already graduated with a degree in engineering technology and management. He said he felt the Giants selected him because their offensive philosophy fits his playing style.

“I felt like that was my style of offense, like that would be one of the teams that would pick me up,” Herman said. “I didn’t think I was going to be a higher priority. They have a lot of offensive linemen. I really didn’t talk to the Giants a lot at the combine (in Indianapolis in February) or before. It was awesome to get picked up by them. It’s a great franchise and they win ballgames, and it’s fun to win.” Herman said he will leave for New York on May 9 and train at the Giants’ facilities through the end of June. “I feel great. I feel strong,” he said. “I have to keep on conditioning to get ready to go to (training) camp. I’m really excited. When I got drafted I said, ‘man, I could play a game right now I’m so pumped up.’ I’m not exactly sure what’s going to happen, but I know I can do it.”

Kovacs signs contract with Dolphins By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer

University of Michigan safety Jordan Kovacs (Press file photo by Scott Grau)

Clay graduate Jordan Kovacs was supposed to be in Ann Arbor, Mich., this weekend to walk down the aisle for his college graduation. He will, however, be somewhere else that day – at the Miami Dolphins’ three-day rookie camp. “My last two exams are Wednesday,” Kovacs said Tuesday night. “I’ll be down in Miami (during graduation), but it’s a fair tradeoff. I’m heading down to Miami now and I’m excited about it.” Kovacs, a fifth-year senior who played strong safety at the University of Michigan, was not taken by any teams in last week’s NFL draft. He was, however, chosen as one of the Dolphins’ 16 rookie free agents and was scheduled to fly to Miami on Thursday morning. “The majority of rookie camp is Fri-

nally a walk-on at UM, Kovacs became well known around the Big Ten following his redshirt freshman year, when he earned a starting job in the Wolverines’ starting defensive backfield in 2009. Kovacs played in 50 games at Michigan, starting 46 at safety, and ranks 12th on UM’s all-time tackles list (331). He is just the 15th player in Michigan history to record 300-plus career tackles. And yet, no NFL team deemed him worthy of picking him in the draft. The Dolphins picked nine players during the threeday draft, including strong safety Don Jones from Arkansas State. Kovacs said he was drafted as a safety, and the Dolphins said they plan to move Jones to cornerback. “We knew if we were drafted, I would be a day-three pick, sixth or seventh round,” Kovacs said. “I’ve watched enough drafts to know that nothing is guaranteed. At end of day, I knew I would have an opportunity

day, Saturday, Sunday,” Kovacs said. “I’ll fly back Sunday and play it by ear and see what happens next.” Kovacs, who has never been to Miami but says he “used to vacation down in Daytona,” said he began receiving several phone calls from prospective teams at the end of the sixth round of the draft last Saturday. “Miami was pretty up front with me and I wasn’t anticipating them drafting me,” Kovacs said. “The owner (Steve Ross) called me from Miami. He went to Michigan. He called me at the end of round seven. He said, ‘I hope you get drafted, but if not, I want you on the roster. I want a Michigan man.’ I talked to a bunch of other teams. Steve called me back, with the GM (Jeff Ireland) and the defensive coordinator, and I finished things up.” Kovacs, who turns 23 next month, was the Bo Schembechler MVP Award winner and a second-team All-Big Ten (coaches) selection following the 2012 season.

Mud Hens help bring NFL to Bowling Green

Continued from page 19 Donnelly, who coached Kovacs for one season (Kovacs played safety and receiver, earning first-team All-City League honors at both positions), said he isn’t surprised his former pupil is getting a shot to play in the NFL. “Nothing Jordan accomplishes is surprising,” Donnelly said. “His incredible work ethic and refusal to take no for an answer has served him well in high school and college. Jordan is a better athlete than most people give him credit for. What makes him special is that he maximizes the talent he possesses and combines that with his intelligence. It’s one thing to have athletic ability but no awareness. Jordan has been blessed with ability and a high football IQ.” Donnelly said he’s only had two players during his coaching career who share the identical athletic ability, high football IQ and work ethic traits: former Ohio State and Chicago Bears receiver Dane Sanzenbacher and Kovacs. Sanzenbacher led Central Catholic to the Division II state title in 2005.

Reynolds sisters leading Gibsonburg track team By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer After a second-place finish last year in its first season in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference, the Gibsonburg girls track team is hoping for better things this time around. If Colleen and Kendall Reynolds have anything to say about it, the Golden Bears may win the TAAC this season and make some noise in the postseason. The top athletes on the team, the Reynolds twins, both of whom are sophomores, have led the team to a fine season thus far, one that has seen Gibsonburg go 4-3 in dualmeet action, win the Margaretta Relays and finish second at both the Fostoria St. Wendelin Invite and the Gibsonburg Invite. This season, the sisters have been dominant in their three individual events, the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes. At the St. Wendelin Invite (Apr. 20), Colleen finished first in the 100, 200 & 400 while Kendall was third, second and third, respectively. Earlier in the year, at the Margaretta Relays (Apr. 6), their performances helped lead the Bears to a first-place finish. And most recently, Colleen and Kendall finished first and second, respectively, in the 100, 200 & 400 at the Gibsonburg Invite last week, an event that saw the girls finished second as a team, just 1.5 points behind Toledo Christian. Their mother, Elizabeth, spoke about the girls’ work ethic. “They train all winter,” said Elizabeth, who notes that the girls exercised at F.A.S.T. Lima before the season. “The girls participated in indoor track and field events at local colleges and universities, too. They’ve conditioned all winter (and) that definitely prepared them for the spring season. “They were very blessed with their ability and did well during their freshman year and in junior high. Last year, Kendall usually finished in first place (in their events) and now Colleen has moved into that role. It’s been a friendly competition.”

In the fall, both girls helped Gibsonburg’s cross country team advance to the Division III Regional Meet, an impressive feat considering that it was the first season in which both had competed in the sport. “The Reynolds girls both went out for cross country and they had a pretty good season,” said Glenn Owens, the track and field head coach. “And they do indoor track to keep themselves in shape. They’ve got to want to do it and get out and run on their own.” But it hasn’t just been the Reynolds girls who have helped the Bears’ track team this season. With the help of senior Courtney Ksenich and freshman Abbey Castillo, Gibsonburg has done well. Most recently, at the Gibsonburg Invite, Ksenich was second in the 1600 (5:58.47) and third in the 3200 (13:00.50). Castillo, meanwhile, was third in the discus (95 feet, 10 inches) and fifth in the shot put (30-06.00). “Courtney has done really well in the distance races, the mile and the two-mile,” said Owens, who has been coaching the team in some form since 1993. “That’s been a big bonus for us. Plus, we lost quite a bit of point scorers from last year in the shot and discus and that’s why it was nice to see Abbey do so well, too.” If the four of them can get some contributions from their teammates, there is a chance that the Bears could contend for a league title, a goal Owens says the team set for itself. With the season winding down, Gibsonburg has a quad meet with conference foes Maumee Valley Country Day, Northwood and Cardinal Stritch and an appearance in the Ottawa Hills Relays before the TAAC Championships on May 17. “We thought about trying to win the TAAC (before the season),” said Owens, now in his fourth year as the head coach. “I think we’re starting to settle in to where we want to be. I’m trying to move kids around and trying to break up the monotony of running the same race. I think we’re zeroing in on what we need to do.”

Eastwood softball has its work cut out

We have to get back on the winning track after losing two one-run ballgames.

Benefit golf outing

Eastwood’s softball team had just lost two games in a row – its first losses of the season – but coach Joe Wyant wasn’t too concerned. The Eagles, after all, have plenty of chances to right the ship this week, beginning with a home game Wednesday against Rossford. Eastwood then plays Fostoria on Friday and finishes the week with a doubleheader against Liberty-Benton on Saturday. “We have to get back on the winning track after losing two one-run ballgames,” Wyant said. “I like what I’ve seen, but there are seven good teams in our league and any one of those teams could beat anybody.” Through Tuesday the Eagles were 14-2 and 3-2 in the Northern Buckeye Conference following a 4-3 loss to Elmwood on Monday and a 2-1 loss to Lake last Wednesday. Eastwood’s NBC victories have come against Woodmore, Fostoria and Otsego. Wyant’s squad has shown good balance on offense (.363 team batting average), defense and on the mound this season. The Eagles “showcased” all three aspects two weeks ago when they won their pool by going 4-0 at the Showcase Classic tournament in Akron, beating schools such as Medina, Akron Hoban and Akron Ellet. Eastwood registered a 5-2 win over Medina, which reached the Division I final four last season, and beat Hoban, a regional finalist last season, 5-1. The Eagles defeated Ellet 1-0. “We were excited going down there,” Wyant said. “We didn’t know if we were going to be 1-3 or 4-0. Our kids played solid defense and we hit the ball well. We were playing really well - 14-0 and doing really well - but the last two games we just haven’t hit.” The Eagles led 3-1 against NBC-leading Elmwood (3-0) before the Royals scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh for the victory. Senior right-hander Whitney Foster, a second-year starter, is 11-2 on the mound

with a 1.04 ERA. She has 73 strikeouts and just 13 walks in 81 innings. “Whitney’s been very solid,” Wyant said. “She’s pitching well; she doesn’t walk many. She’s been really solid all year.” Eastwood’s No. 2 pitcher, junior righty Samantha Shirling, is 3-0 with a 1.21 ERA. Shirling, who was on the junior varsity team last season, earned the win against Medina by going 6 1/3 innings and giving up just two earned runs. Foster earned the save. “As of right now, Samantha will probably be the starter next season,” Wyant said. “She’s a very good pitcher. She’s worked very hard to get where she’s at. She’s vastly improved to where she was, with her speed, accuracy and work ethic.” Freshman shortstop Mackenzie Albright is the Eagles’ leading hitter, batting .440 with 19 runs and one home run from her leadoff position. “She’s been really solid,” Wyant said. “Her attitude, she’s a competitor. She wants to win, she wants to be better. I didn’t know what to expect before the season. I saw her travel team and she’s better than I was expecting her to be. She’s fitting right in and doing a nice, solid job. She’s got good speed and she’s got some power.” Junior catcher Anna Rahrig is hitting .432 with 10 RBI and two home runs. Rahrig was a designated hitter a year ago. “She’s got a really good arm,” Wyant said. “I moved her to catcher because of her arm. I just needed her to play instead of DH. She’s been working to be a catcher the

Eastwood first baseman Diana Bushman. (Photo by Nancy Foster) last two years. We stuck her in there and she’s done a real solid job catching.” Ally Gabel, a senior center fielder, is batting .420 with 19 runs and nine doubles. Gabel was a first-team all-district selection in 2012. “She does a great job getting on base,” Wyant said. “Her on-base (percentage) is almost .600. She gets a lot of walks and does a lot of the little things well. This is her third year playing center field.” Junior third baseman Cassidy Rolf, a three-year starter, is hitting .404 and leads the team with 20 runs scored, with 19 RBI and three home runs. Rolf was a first-team all-district selection as a sophomore. “She’s a great hitter,” Wyant said. “She’s very strong and hits with power. Defensively, she’s really improved this year. She’s got an arm that is by far the best on our team.”

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

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. Matthew 6:11-12

Hi! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Glenda Cocoa. I can be a little bit shy when you first meet me, but once I warm up to you I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave your side! I can help you with everything from holding down the pages while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reading the newspaper, pressing the keys while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on the computer, to keeping your lap warm while you watch TV. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help you with all your chores and then help you kick back and relax when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll wonder how you ever managed without me! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m considered a special needs girl because I have food allergies and require a special kind of food.


Hi there! My name is Pumba, and I am all wart-hog! I am actually a 1 year old boxer mix, and I am playful, silly and I have a ton of love to give. I am looking for a family to share my silliness and wart-hog style with, and come on how cute am I with my snaggle-tooth! I am looking for a family along with 70 + of my canine friends here at the Lucas County Dog Warden - 410 S Erie St - 419-213-2800 - Mon-Fri 10-6, Sat 10-5. The LCDW is always looking for volunteers to come and spend some time with us pooches as well as donated goods such as blankets and towels. You can check us out on Facebook and on, and we will be at the Fido and Feline Fiesta this weekend Sat and Sun May 4&5 from 10-3 along with lots of other rescue groups for a big megaadoption event! Come check us out and adopt a new best friend!
