Oak Harbor

EPA gives OK for sewer system relief State environmental officials, swayed by Oak Harbor’s plea for help, agreed to temporary regulation changes to relieve sewer system flooding while a long-term solution is sought. “They have given us the OK for everything we wanted plus some,” Mayor Bill Eberle told village council at its regular meeting Monday. “I was very pleased with Jones & Henry.” Eberle accompanied engineers to the April 23 meeting with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s Bowling Green office staff along with Interim Administrator Randy Genzman, Village Solicitor Jim Barney and Wastewater System Supervisor Jerry Neff. “I don’t want to say I was shocked but I was very excited,” Genzman said about the almost immediate results of the visit. For more than two years, the village has been battling to reduce sewer backups triggered by heavy rains. The problem is linked to a faulty combined sewer system overflow pond that council has been pouring repair money into for months. Last fall, council fired the engineer-

ing firm, Poggemeyer Design Group, and pinned its hopes on the Toledo office of Jones & Henry Engineering instead. Shortly after the Jones & Henry presentation, EPA officials gave Oak Harbor permission to open two more system regulator valves at the Portage Fire District station and at Church Street, Genzman told council. The presentation included information gathered in March from residents about the damage and health issues created by sewer water pouring into their basements and yards – in some cases repeatedly. “They also directed us to design a permanent combined sewer overflow point at the basin,” Genzman explained to council.

“We wanted that from the beginning.” A few weeks prior, the EPA had already given approval to re-open a regulator valve at Portage Street to allow overflow into the nearby Portage River. Officials had tried to get permission for months. That project, for which the village hired Castalia Trenching and Ready Mix, began May 5 and should be complete within a few days, Genzman said. Village leaders have said that opening the valves will not solve the problem completely. However, the re-openings will relieve a lot of stress on the system and reduce flooding while the search continues for a permanent fix. Councilwoman Sue Rahm wanted to know the cost for opening the other two valves. “Will the opening costs be the same?” she asked. Estimates will be sought immediately for the other two openings and, hopefully, they may come in lower than the $6,300 Portage Street CSO project, Genzman said. Some of the work may be done by village workers, the mayor said. Councilman Jim Seaman wanted to know what effect the Church Street regulator re-opening and others would have on

The Oregon school board has informed the Oregon City Federation of Teachers to vacate its office in the Wynn Center, owned by the school district, because the board never approved its lease. Dave Shafer, president of the Oregon City Federation of Teachers, told the board at a meeting last month that he received an email from Dean Sandwisch, the district’s director of business affairs, after Easter vacation requesting the teachers’ union leave the premises. Shafer said the group had been paying $100 per month to the district to lease the space. “I asked Mr. Sandwisch before the meeting if we’ve been bad tenants, if we have not paid our bills, if there is a problem, if there is something we can do, is there a reason we’re not having any discussion before we’re being asked to vacate the premises?” said Shafer. “I’m a little bit concerned. I think we have been good tenants, we have paid our rent. I guess I just wanted to know what was the rationale behind asking us to vacate that facility. To my knowledge, it’s not full. There’s space. And we are paying customers. There’s been no talk of negotiating a higher rate.” “I can answer that,” said Board President P.J. Kapfhammer. “You’re paying $100 per month. You’re not paying rent. Based on the space you’re using, if you can find anything comparable, I’d like to know where it’s at in this town. You can’t rent any kind of space for $100.” “We weren’t ever approached to pay more,” said Shafer. “Well, I look back and I don’t even know how this deal came about because it’s never been board approved that we can find,” said Kapfhammer. “Are all the tenants approved at the Wynn Center?” asked Shafer. “I don’t know,“ said Kapfhammer. “I

EPA gives OK for sewer relief Continued from front page the installed docks and the proposed kayak launch along the Portage River. “None,” Genzman answered. “We will submerge the flow.” The EPA did not set any deadlines as they encouraged village officials to move forward. Open village council seat May 15 is the deadline to submit an application for the open village council seat. The opening was created when Brad Weis resigned his council position because of a conflict with the responsibilities of his new job as Genoa police chief Gardner visit State Sen. Randy Gardner stopped by Monday’s meeting for a short hello and to let officials know that he’s here to serve the needs of those in Senate District 2. “I love to go to bat for small communities. Big cities get all the attention,” Gardner said. One thing he will fight for in the next few months is trying to get funding for communities in cleanup mode for damage created during this year’s devastating winter. “I think the state should provide assistance for unforeseen costs for historic problems,” Gardner told council. If the state could muster a payout of even $10 per capita, that could bring at least a few thousand for communities like Oak Harbor. “It would be nice to get something back after giving so much,” the mayor said. New electrical service finished The project to install new electrical lines below the Portage River to service properties south of the bridge is complete. “All the properties have been energized,” Genzman told council. The project slowed for months when drillers ran into unexpected bedrock mound and had to bring in new equipment. The move hinged on council approving a change order of about $115,000 which members did reluctantly since the work was so far along.

Attendance

Oregon Community Theatre sets a record By Alex Sobel Press Contributing Writer news@presspublications.com Though The Oregon Community Theatre has always put on quality shows, the group has often had difficulty getting the word out to people who might be interested in seeing live Theatre close to home. But after numbers were tallied at a meeting last week, it seems like that’s starting to change. “This (past) season, we had record setting attendance,” said Reed Steel, president of the Oregon Community Theatre. Steele attributed the increase in attendance to many factors, one of which would be some new approaches to promotion. “A lot of it comes down to spreading the word that we’re here, (and) our advertising person, Nancy Ice, has just been doing dynamite work,” he said. The choice of shows also plays a big part in the attendance record. This previous season’s shows, Les Miserables, M*A*S*H, and On Golden Pond, all have popular film or television versions, and are well known to non-Theatre going audiences. The Theatre also goes after shows that other Theatre groups in the area haven’t

LET US CUT YOUR GRASS SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO

done yet. “We like to be on the cutting edge with our show selection, especially with our musicals,” Steele said. “We like to do shows that have just been made available to community Theatre.” Other factors are taken into consideration when choosing shows, including cast size. “We like shows with large casts,” Steele said. “They allow a lot of people to experience community Theatre that never got a chance before, or didn’t even know about it.” Having a lot of people in a show also has the benefit of widening the scope of people who know about the production. “All the cast members have friends, family, and colleagues that come to see the shows,” Steele said. The Oregon Community Theatre’s fall musical is always its biggest draw, and did well this past season as it often does. It was the winter show, however, that surprised everyone with its large turnout. “Despite the fact that it was one of the worst winters on record, we had about twice our normal attendance for our winter show, M*A*S*H,” Steele said. Selecting what shows to produce isn’t

everything, though, and Steele believes that the quality of all aspects of the Oregon Community Theatre’s productions is what’s helping to increase attendance. “There are a lot of very talented people working on these shows, not only with singing and acting, but also with set design, lighting, special effects, and producing, It really does help when the audience does arrive in the Theatre,” he said. “They’re impressed by the whole thing. That’s where we start to get more people coming.” Steele hopes that because of the positive reactions of those that came to see shows like Les Miserables, next season will break even more records for attendance. “I’ve heard several people say, ‘I didn’t know you guys did this, this is fantastic. I’m buying season tickets for next year,’” he said. This new season begins this fall with a large musical, Spamalot, and Steele and the rest of the Oregon Community Theatre are ready to get the word out. “We don’t want to be the best kept secret,” Steele said. “We want everyone to know that we’re here and that we’re putting on great shows.” For more information visit www.oregoncommunitytheatre.org

Union Continued from fron page would assume so. I’m pretty certain we have deals with everybody.” “I have a signed lease,” said Shafer. “We didn’t evict you,” said Kapfhammer. “We chose to non-renew. There’s a big difference. You’re not being evicted.” “I’m concerned that there’s been no discussion. If it’s a matter of rent, Mr. Kapfhammer, which you just said it was, then we could have those discussions,” said Shafer. “My biggest concern is when you start serving us with legal papers from our own address, maybe you should rent your own place and start serving us from down the road,” said Kapfhammer. “We are renting our own place,” said Shafer. “You’re not anymore after the end of this month,” said Kapfhammer. “So go somewhere else.” “For the record,” said Shafer, “we were served with legal papers first.” Ok, but when you serve me personally from our own address…” said Kapfhammer. “So this is not a matter of being bad tenants, not paying our rent, doing damage to the facilities, and it’s not a matter of fact that you have a tenant that’s looking to move in and pay more rent, it’s not a matter of you have no space there for us?” asked Shafer. “We don’t want you there anymore,” said Kapfhammer. “That’s all I need to know,” said Shafer. Lawsuit Kapfhammer said after the meeting that his relationship with Shafer has been strained since the union filed a lawsuit against the school board last month. The lawsuit alleges a breach of the collective bargaining agreement to arbitrate a grievance by the union’s committee chairperson, who was reprimanded by the board for allegedly misusing the district’s innerschool email system for union business. The lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by The Press, states that the union believes the collective bargaining agreement provides that the inner-school mail system, including the mailboxes, as well as email, Internet, and voicemail, may be used by the union to facilitate the dissemination of

union communications and school-related material. The board has refused to proceed to arbitration on the grievance, according to the lawsuit. Kapfhammer said he met with union officials for mediation, but the grievance could not be resolved. Shafer said last week that the union moved its previous office last year after the building on Navarre Avenue was sold. He and Sandwisch then met to negotiate the $100 per month lease of the office in the Wynn Center. “Mr. Sandwisch was fully aware of the whole thing. I told him we did not want to spend a lot of money. For the most part, we just needed a place to meet. He said `Fine,’

and we’ve been there pretty much a year. Most of what we lease is a storage facility, basically a closet in the building. We meet once per month in one of the old classrooms,” said Shafer. He believes the lease will not be renewed because of the lawsuit, though he added that it could not be avoided. “We firmly believe the use of the email system is a contract right. We believe that’s enshrined in the contract. We filed a grievance because one of our members sent out an email, but the board said it deserved a letter of reprimand. We couldn’t resolve it internally. We tried. Part of the process is you go to a third party, arbitration. I’m perfectly comfortable going to a third party, and

if we’re wrong, we’re wrong. We want someone to decide for us. As president of the union, I have no choice on some things. I have to conform to the contract when I think it’s being violated.” He would not comment on the upcoming contract negotiations with the board, though he said everything would be on the table. The three year contract expires on July 31. The first meeting with the board to set the ground rules of the negotiations is scheduled for May 13. He expects the negotiations to go smoothly, and without any animosity. “I consider P.J. a friend. This is just business. I have absolutely no ill will toward him,” said Shafer.

Clark thanks volunteers, voters for school levy A 4.9-mill bond issue combined with a 0.25 percent earned income tax for the Northwood Local Schools District passed on Tuesday’s primary election ballot by just 17 votes, according to unofficial results from the Wood County Board of Elections. The levy passed 671-654 votes, according to the board of elections. A similar bond issue and income tax proposal on last November’s ballot was defeated by just two votes – 702-700. “We had another very close election,” said Superintendent Greg Clark on Wednesday. “I can’t express just how grateful I am to the people who really worked hard to make this happen. I’m very thankful to the volunteers who got the message out.” He was told by the board of elections that there are 11 provisional ballots, which would not be enough to change the outcome. “The percentage of people who voted compared to other communities shows our voters were engaged in making the decision,” said Clark. “Almost as many votes were cast with little on the ballot compared to votes cast in the fall. Historically, this election would have had many fewer voters. Having Northwood schools on the ballot got our people out. The community voted.” The revenue will be used to fund the construction of a 130,000 square foot building for prekindergarten through 12th

may not be another opportunity to take advantage of the state’s offer to pay $11 million towards a new facility. “If we had waited, it would have cost us more to build a school. We know for sure the offer we have now from the state wouldn’t be around in the future. Would there have been another offer with different numbers? It’s possible. You never know. We still would have to pay for it. There are no free lunches. Now is the time to do it. I think the people understood that overall,” said Clark. “They were willing to make a private investment in the community that will have an impact on kids for the next 50 years.” The district will begin collecting revenue next January, he said. “I view this as a very positive investment in the Northwood community. Over time, I think people will be very happy they have made this choice. What’s the next step? “We’ll get started on the planning process,” he said. “The folks who have been through this before tell me we’ll have about a year to work with the architects and the community to put together the plan. We know we’re going to build 130,000 square feet, but how all those square feet will be worked out, it’s going to be a fun conversation to have. We’re going to design a Northwood school that’s unique to our community and we’ll provide a 21st century educational environment for our students. Then once building proceeds, it’s our expectation to have the doors open for a brand new school in the fall of 2017.”

The program encourages customers to save money on their electric bills and help the environment by recycling secondary, energy-inefficient refrigerators and freezers. It offers easy pickup and rewards customers a $50 incentive for participating. By recycling 50,000 refrigerators, customers of FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities have returned approximately 150,000 pounds of aluminum, equal to 4.2 million aluminum cans, back into the manufacturing stream. The program is ongoing and scheduling a pickup is easy. Customers can call 877-545-4112, or visit energysaveOhio.com. Appliances must be in working order when picked up for recycling. Units picked up through the program are transported to an appliance recycling facility operated by JACO Environmental. JACO safely removes harmful materials from the old energyguzzlers, reclaiming 95 percent of the materials in the appliances for reuse in manufacturing new products. Even the foam insulation is safely incinerated to generate electricity.

Genoa

Teachers, school board reach tentative agreement By Larry Limpf News Editor news@presspublications.com A tentative agreement that authorizes step increases in pay for teachers in the Genoa Area Local School District has been approved by the board of education and the union representing teachers. Before voting on the agreement, however, board members Monday approved a resolution that says even with the passage of an operating levy, the district’s 5-year forecast can’t support the agreement over the long term. The resolution notes the school board in recent years has “…made a conscientious effort to make budget reductions in other operational areas to spare any teacher reductions; the school district does not have the funding resources available to maintain a positive year-end cash flow balance and

will, most likely, be required to make cuts in personnel and programs in order to do so.” The Genoa Area Education Association, which represents about 79 teachers, ratified the agreement on April 30 after a fact-finder report was completed. Under the agreement, step increases, which are based on teachers’ years of experience and their level of the educational degrees, will be “un-frozen.” Teachers will receive one step increase retro-active to July 1, 2013 in the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, and then advance two steps on the salary schedule in the next fiscal year that starts July 1. Bill Nye, district treasurer, said the increases will cost the district about $400,000 over two years. The current 3-year contract was set to expire on June 30. The agreement also calls for the union

to end on May 1 its “work to rule” stance in which teachers only do what is explicitly required of them in the contract. In addition, the agreement calls for the two sides to continue negotiating on statemandated systems for evaluating teachers and calculating the change from the minimum number of days of instruction to a minimum number of hours each year. Board members unanimously approved the resolution but Laura Meinke, board president, cast the only no vote on a motion to accept a report compiled by a fact-finder from the Ohio State Employment Relations Board. Dennis Mock, school superintendent, said the board and union had been negotiating for about a year before seeking mediation. Levy falls Voters in the district Tuesday rejected

a 4.99-mill, 5-year levy that would have been used to fund operating expenses. According to unofficial results, 383 voters supported the levy and 752 were against it. Data compiled by the administration indicate the school system faces a deficit of about $100,000 by the end of the 2016 fiscal year on June 30, 2016 without additional spending cuts or revenues. Bill Nye, district treasurer, said the school system’s five-year financial forecast shows a negative cash balance by then largely due to a drop in state revenues and stagnant property taxes even though the district has reduced expenditures. The projected deficit climbs to about $1.2 million by the end of the 2017 fiscal year. The school board and administration have indicated they would place an issue on the November ballot if it failed Tuesday.

Oak Harbor council sees need for parks levy By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Oak Harbor Village Council has been talking about the need for a park levy for a couple of months and on Monday members reviewed a break-down on park maintenance, expenses, needs and proposed future projects compiled by Interim Administrator Randy Genzman. The analysis led them all to agree that they would likely have to go to voters for a park levy this year to generate cash just to help maintain the status quo. Council reviewed several millage options up to 5-mills and zeroed in on a 3-mill levy. That amount would generate $132,000 annually. For the owner of a home valued at $100,000, the cost would be about $105 a year. A 1-mill levy would bring in about $44,000 a year, while a 5-mill would generate $222,000 annually. “This year we are cutting seasonal staff by 50 percent. It is not going to look as good,� Genzman said of recent cuts made to keep the budget in line. “If you want to get our parks back to the way they should be and people appreciating them – the 3-mill would not cover that.� But council members figure it’s a start. Mayor Bill Eberle noted that if the levy did pass, the council could supplement the

parks fund with some cash instead of the general fund footing the entire bill. “You don’t want to ask too much,� Councilman Jon Fickert said. “You want to be reasonable.� What amazed him, Eberle said, was the number of properties under the parks department umbrella. Properties mowed and maintained by part-time and seasonal staff include Veterans Memorial Park, Flat Iron Park, Kraemer Park, Riverfront, Red Hawk Run Storm Basin, the wooded area north of Red Hawk Run, Fremont Oil, LaCarne Booster Station, Salem Sewer District lift stations, Department of Public Works building, Main Street water tower, a meter building, municipal building, administration building and roadsides throughout the village. “We take a lot for granted that we never see,� Councilman Jim Seaman added. All the parks get used a lot but they require some major fix-ups that have long been put on back burners, Fickert stressed along with his counterpart Sue Rahm. “I’m just a big believer in that if you don’t give kids something to do they’re going to find something to get into,� Rahm said. The real challenge will be laying out a media campaign that’ll garnish voter sup-

port. “We need to show what we will give back in exchange for that support,� Councilman Jackie Macko said. Seaman suggested “kicking it up a notch� by focusing on some improvement that residents want. “We’re asking for $132,000 annually. We need to say we need this for more than mowing the lawns,� the councilman said. Councilman Don Douglas agreed. For residents to buy into the park levy, they’ll want a reasonable return. One thought, he said, is weaving a major project into the deal like updating the main shelter house at Veterans Park and adding roll down sides. Even if a levy passes this year, the village will not see any of the money until 2016, Village Solicitor Jim Barney said. The Oak Harbor Library Board recently asked the village for its support to put a levy on the ballot this year in the wake of state cuts that have contributed to reduced hours and dropped services. The library levy would affect residents living in the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District. The village levy would only affect residents within Oak Harbor’s corporation limits.

Lake Twp. man suing prosecutor, police chief A Pemberville Road man has filed a complaint in Wood County Common Pleas Court against Mark Hummer, the Lake Township police chief, and Paul Dobson, county prosecutor, alleging the chief illegally removed the man’s granddaughter from his home. Dan Prewitt, who filed the complaint Monday, alleges the chief – at the direction of Dobson – violated his Fourth Amendment rights when he “unlawfully forced his way� into Prewitt’s residence on Jan. 13 and removed the girl. Prewitt is asking for a jury trial and $300,000 in damages each from Dobson and Hummer. According to his complaint, Prewitt on Jan. 10 picked up his granddaughter from school with the permission of her father, Andrew Prewitt, because the girl, who was involved in a custody dispute, claimed she had been threatened with a gun by a man staying with her aunt in Sylvania. The girl didn’t want to return to her aunt’s home and she was charged with being unruly and taken to the county’s juvenile detention center, according to police reports. Prewitt contends he immediately contacted the township police when he arrived home with the girl. His complaint asserts

he is entitled to an “affirmative defenseâ€? shield from interfering in a custody matter. “Defendants had threatened to unlawfully arrest every person in the household‌namely the owners of the residence Dan and Andrea Prewitt including his son’s Andrew and Dan Jr. Prewitt,â€? the complaint says. On Wednesday, Prewitt asked the Lake Township trustees to investigate chief Hummer’s actions. “In my opinion he broke the law,â€? he said. Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board

of trustees, said “It sounds to me like he did his job.� Phil Dombey, township solicitor, said he would discuss the matter with the trustees but told Prewitt that the trustees’ meeting wasn’t the proper place to discuss his complaint. “You took the appropriate action. You’ll have your day in court,� he said. Prewitt is representing himself in the lawsuit. Chief Hummer declined to comment after the meeting. In other business, the trustees discussed the township’s financial condition, focusing on tax levies. A 5-year, 1-mill levy that funds the fire department is set to expire next year. The trustees are leaning toward seeking a renewal in November for the issue that generates about $223,860 annually. They noted that to instead seek a replacement of the levy, which would be based on current property valuations, would cause homeowners to lose a 10 percent rollback on their tax duplicate due to a change enacted by the state. Fire chief Bruce Moritz said the trustees will also need to address other levies that support the fire and EMS department. A contract with LifeStar for 24-hour paramedic service will expire next year, he said.

The Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District, in cooperation with the Ohio Division of Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Winous Point Marsh Conservancy, invites high school students to a one-day workshop, “Field Skills for Future Land Stewards – Wildlife Management.” The workshop will be held June 26 from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. During the workshop, 20 students will get the opportunity to spend a day out in the field with wildlife managers and learn what they do. In the morning, the students will participate in a goose round-up. During lunch, there will be an open discussion featuring professionals from all aspects of wildlife management. After lunch, students will get back in the field to learn more about radio telemetry and animal necropsy. “I see this as an opportunity for students with a career interest in conservation to ‘get their feet wet’ in the realms of wildlife management,” said Becky Simpson, education specialist for the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District. Participants should bring waders or old tennis shoes, a change of clothes (just in case) and binoculars or cameras. Lunch is included in the $20 fee. The workshop is open to youths who will be in high school in the fall. To register, call 419-898-1595 or visit www.ottawaswcd.com.

Metropark’s Howard Farms

Contracts set for first park to have lake access By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer news@presspublications.com Two engineering contracts were approved by the Toledo Area Metroparks for Howard Farms, its first park to have access to Lake Erie. The 1,000 acre park, located on the current Howard Farms property west of Metzger Marsh in Jerusalem Township, will be unlike any other Metropark in that it will be the first located near Lake Erie’s coast. It will be the Metroparks largest park in its system, next to Oak Openings. The Metroparks approved contracts to Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Smith Group JJR for engineering and design of the human interface and to Ducks Unlimited for engineering and design of the actual wetlands. Total contract cost for the two engineering contracts is estimated at $250,900. Ducks Unlimited, the consultants designing the wetland, is a national organization whose mission is to create and preserve habitat for North American waterfowl. “It’s just a rare opportunity to engineer in coastal wetlands, which is a habitat that is really disappearing at an alarming rate,” Metroparks public relations director Scott Carpenter said. Smith Group is the consulting firm designing the park, including trails, parking, restroom facilities, and other human interface. A Metroparks resolution called for the two firms to “create habitat enhancements that also create opportunities for fishing, wildlife viewing, small craft boating, hunting, interpretive messaging and research.” The contracts approved Wednesday are only for Phase I, which includes the 700 acres on the east side of Howard Road, said Carpenter. “The property on the west side will not be part of this first phase at all, just because of cost at this point, so it will be a future project,” Carpenter said. Phase I construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2015 and completed by fall 2017. Total costs, including construction, are estimated at $5-$5.8 million. Carpenter said grants will cover a large per-

centage of the cost. “There are a lot of variables. Moving dirt, it turns out, is quite expensive, and that’s the bulk of the work,” Carpenter said. “So any variance in cost, and we’re estimating right now, could throw this budget off quite a bit. A change of 50 cents to $1 a ton could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars.” The new park 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. “We’re going to have over six miles of hiking trails, but we’re also going to have six miles of permanent deep water navigable channel,” Metroparks public relations director Scott Carpenter said.

“What that is, is like a six-mile blue trail, we call it, so you’ll be able to canoe and kayak six miles on that property. We’re looking forward to this. We’re not directly on the lake, but we’re connected by Ward’s Canal. The trails are the main reason people come to Metroparks, so that is exciting to have six miles of walking trails and that will be our first blue trail, or water trail.” Tim Schetter, Ph.D., director of natural resources for the Metroparks of the Toledo Area, said at an open house that he 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. Habitat will also be created for turtles, snakes and other marsh denizens. The land, which was previously 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.

Oregon schools seeking public’s input from survey

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor kkaczala@presspublications.com

More and more, public schools are looking towards their foundations to do the extras,

The Oregon school board, as part of its Strategic Plan update, is asking the public to fill out an online survey to help determine the areas the district will focus on for the next three years. Public input will inform and influence the strategic planning process. The public is encouraged to provide “honest thoughts” about the most critical issues the district must address in the next few years. The first stage of strategic planning is to survey the district’s stakeholders, defined as any person that has attended (current students and alumni) or worked (teachers and staff) in Oregon schools, is the parent of a student in Oregon schools, lives in the Oregon community, is a business owner in Oregon or is a community leader in Oregon. The board believes its stakeholders are important to the district’s past, present and future and that they should have the opportunity to express their opinion in the development of the strategic plan update, according to Superintendent Lonny Rivera. Among the survey questions: • Suppose Oregon City Schools were graded like students in our district. Based on your impressions and experiences, what would you say the district’s overall grade should be? • What do you like most about Oregon

City Schools?” • What should Oregon City Schools focus on to provide a better student experience in each of the following areas: Academics, Arts, Athletics? • What frustrates you most about Oregon City Schools? •What is your view of the current Oregon City Schools? To access the survey, log on to https:// www.surveymonkey.com/s/OCS_External_ Stakeholder_Survey All surveys must be completed no later than May 16, 2014. Fundraising The district and the Oregon Schools Foundation in March hired Aly Sterling Philanthropy, LLC to facilitate the update.

Aly Sterling Philanthropy is a full-service fundraising and board governance firm, specializing in building sustainable fundraising and board governance solutions for nonprofits. Strategic planning is a core part of their service. Sara Best, a director with Aly Sterling, is developing the strategic focus for the next couple years. “They helped put together the survey for us, and they will also help us make sense of the data when it all comes in - find trends and make sense of what’s there,” Rivera told The Press last Tuesday. “They also will lead the group discussions from the stake holders that will be at our meeting in June. We will know what the stakeholders are saying, and discuss what we can do to go to the next level, to readjust where we spend our time and energy and finances. We’ll look to the private sector to fill the needs, and plan on getting alumni and business – anyone who has a vested interest in the district – to assist us in doing more than we could doing. We’re going to have a public release of the information once it’s put together.” The district will look to the Oregon Schools Foundation to help raise funds, he added. The Foundation is a non-profit group that serves as a catalyst to bring local businesses and the community together to increase educational opportunities for Oregon students. Through an established endowment fund from donations, the Foundation provides grants as well as

community resources to support programs to enhance the educational experiences in the district. “More and more, public schools are looking towards their foundations to do the extras, and to help supplement funding because it is decreasing at a very quick rate. We have a number of alumni who have done well, but once they leave us, we don’t do what the universities or even private schools do – and that is, stay in contact with them and offer them opportunities to give back,” said Rivera. “My long term vision is to have the foundation supplement funding for all the extra things the kids love to do that are fun but cost money, such as the arts and athletics,” he said. “Anything we can do to take those things off the taxpayer dollar so we would then only be relying on the public money for academic programming we do at school. It’s going to take a while to get there. I want to give all the amenities we can, but ease what the taxpayer has to pay, too.” A collaborative team representing school administration & staff, board of education, business owners, community leaders, alumni, parents and students has been formed as part of the update process. Survey responses will be anonymous, unless the public opts to share their identity. Survey findings will be shared in summary at an upcoming Strategic Planning session.

No bidders show at sheriff’s sale; property to be forfeited By Larry Limpf News Editor news@presspublications.com After not drawing the interest of any bidders at two sheriff’s sales, an 11.2-acre parcel and building in Lake Township are now going through the forfeiture process. The property, located at 3700 Williston Road, had most recently been the site of a Steve & Barry’s store. Foreclosure proceedings began last

September in Wood County Common Pleas Court. The court recently notified several area jurisdictions of the property’s availability after sherrif’s sales on April 10 and 24 failed to attract buyers. Under state law, the court is offering to forfeit the property to the Wood County commissioners, Lake Township, Penta Career Center and Lake Local School District. Each entity has 10 days to petition the

court to receive the property. If no petition is filed the property will be forfeited to the state. Melanie Bowen, a Lake Township trustee, read the county prosecutor’s certification to forfeit the property during last week’s meeting of the trustees but they took no action.

Woodmore teacher, friend enjoy Australia in ‘autumn’ By Alex Reinhart Staff Writer Window To Woodmore During spring break, many high school students were stuck inside watching the rain, while Woodmore faculty member Erin Reynolds enjoyed herself in Australia. Reynolds, who teaches students with special needs, went to Australia to visit her friend Jamie Bannear, who was a foreign exchange student from Australia that Reynolds met in high school. In Australia, Reynolds met many of Bannear’s friends and family. She also met people from other countries, including people from Canada and a woman from New Zealand she talked to while on her plane.

chocolate factory and local attractions such as the world’s largest wooden horse and the Whispering Wall. “If you just whispered people could hear you from the other side,” said Reynolds about the Whispering Wall. It was extremely hot in Australia where they had a record high temperature for that time of year. “It was about 91 degrees, and it is fall for them and usually it’s only 70 to 75 degrees,” said Reynolds. At the beach Reynolds was staying at, there were news reporters talking to citizens about the record temperatures, asking their thoughts about the heat. Reynolds could be seen twice in the background, once in the water with Bannear, and once on the beach with him. “To go to Australia is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, to appear on the news there is unheard of,” said Reynolds.

In Australia, many things are quite different than in the U.S. People in Australia get a lot more vacation time than people in the U.S. While people in America go to college after graduation, Australians go on vacation. Americans have school for nine months and then summer break, while Australians go all year round but take four to five week breaks for holidays such as Christmas or Halloween. Australia’s $1 currency is worth about 97 cents in America. The lowest bill for Australia is a 5, and they use one-dollar coins. Reynolds enjoyed holding a Koala and feeding kangaroos more than anything else. “I would love to go again,” said Reynolds. “Except next time I would stay longer so I can see more of the country.” (Reprinted from Window To Woodmore, a student publication, with permission.)

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?

Elliston

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. You cannot serve both God and money. N.I.V Matthew 6:24

Forgiveness urged To the editor: This is in response to the letter regarding Pope Francis proclaiming the sainthood of John Paul II, in spite of the sex abuse scandal. If you look back in the lives of saints, you will find that there is not one who was 100 percent perfect (besides St. Mary). We all have a portion of our lives that we are ashamed of and we certainly wouldn’t want to be only judged by that one portion. John Paul was from an Nazi-controlled country. He witnessed how they hated the church. He witnessed how beloved, holy priests were falsely accused of all kinds of things so the Nazis could silence them. Of course, then he would be cautious and slow in these abuse cases. I do not in any way want to demean the horror of what these children endured, but I am called to have forgiveness, if I myself wish to be forgiven someday of my sins. John Paul II was a man who loved us, who forgave us, who suffered for us, especially the worst of us. He gave all, just like Christ unto the end. It is reported that he took no pain medications. Please read his writings and you will know him better. Do not allow the media to dictate to you who he is or what the Catholic Church is. S. McHale Graytown

titled “Money questions” (April 28 issue of The Press) that we must come together for solutions. But before we do that, let’s get the facts straight. Money in politics is the problem and most money goes for advertisements. So why doesn’t the media do its patriotic duty and offer political ads free of charge? The Keystone XL pipeline will not serve anyone in this country. The shale oil that will travel from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico will be unrefined crude to be shipped and sold overseas. The U.S. will see none of it. The Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and Indians who live where this pipeline is being built were on the Washington Mall protesting its construction. There have been earthquakes in that area. If the Keystone XL pipeline should break, it would destroy the Nebraska aquifer which irrigates America’s bread basket and provides water for the Indian reservations. Paul Szymanowski Curtice

Pipeline coercion? To the editor: Why should we be coerced by President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry into believing that we should wait until after the elections in November to vote for the approval of the Keystone pipeline? Playing politics with the elections and fearing retaliation is reckless and ill-fa-

vored. We should be allowed to access our affordable, abundant natural resources, and not allow the heavy hand of government to block us from reaching our full potential. This energy boom will continue with the Bakken formations expecting to be producing 1.7 million barrels a day by 2020, up from 1.1 million a day this year. The pipeline (an estimated $7 billion project) will create thousands of jobs, give the economy a shot in the arm, lower gas prices and wean the U.S. from foreign imports. This project went through the incredibly strict and expensive EPA approval process with flying colors. Also, the Fraser Institute disclosed it to be safer to transport by pipeline than by rail or roadway. This report should pacify the environmentalist concerns. It makes no sense to let government policies constrain America’s freedom of action today. Let’s insist our representatives OK this project and get America back to its greatness in the world. Ted Georgoff Lambertville, Mich.

Clean-up a success To the editor: Thanks to the more than 80 volunteers who made the Ottawa County beach clean-up a success. On Saturday April 19, more than 400 pounds of trash was removed along four area beaches. Despite the chilly weather, volunteers

were eager to participate in the Earth Day celebration. As part of the Alliance for the Great Lakes’ Adopt-a-Beach program, collection information is entered into an online database and used to educate the public and improve beaches throughout the Great Lakes. Thanks to the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, East Harbor State Park, Catawba Island State Park and Magee Marsh for hosting this year’s Adopt-a-Beach cleanups. Becky Simpson Education Specialist/Fiscal Manager, Ottawa SWCD

Efforts appreciated To the editor: The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Village Wide Cleanup was held Saturday May 3. Despite the rainy, cool weather, we had nearly 30 volunteers – including the Oak Harbor High School baseball team – come out to help clean up the downtown area, We would also like to thank Community Markets for the use of their Dumpsters and the Village of Oak Harbor for donating trash bags for the event. Half a Dumpster was filled Saturday morning – which is trash that is no longer on our streets. We all need to do our part to help keep our small town beautiful. Again, we would like to thank everyone who participated and their efforts to help keep Oak Harbor clean. Valerie Winterfield Executive Director, Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce

Local school officials react to competitive balance vote If you pay attention to high school sports, you’ve probably heard the statistic that private schools, despite making up just 17 percent of the membership of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, have won 40 percent of the state titles since 1999. This has created an uproar from some public schools in the Buckeye State who claim that private schools have unfair advantages, and as a result, has prompted four consecutive years of votes on what is known as a competitive balance proposal. Votes are currently being taken until Wednesday on a contentious issue that has been the subject of discussion in the circles of high school sports for years. The competitive-balance proposal put forth by the OHSAA stands to change the landscape of athletics in Ohio should it receive over 50 percent of the vote from the high school principals in the state. In the three prior years the proposal has gotten 47.7, 47 and 48.5 percent of the vote. It came the closest to passing last spring. A school’s enrollment figure is currently the only criterion used to classify teams into respective tournaments. The new plan would institute a formula that would take into account the composition of each team’s roster, specifically the student’s background. Different criteria, based on one’s residential status would decide whether a player is assigned a Level 0, 1 or 2 rating. That number would then be used to produce an adjusted enrollment figure. In short, schools that have open enrollment and private schools that accept students from various school districts would be held to a high standard. I, for one, support the referendum. I’ve seen some of the major private institutions dominate in sports, and I believe it’s time for a change.

The Flip Side by Yaneek Smith Does anyone really believe that schools like Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller, Cleveland St. Ignatius, and Kettering Archbishop Alter continue to win and compete for state championships on a regular basis by accident? The answer is no. These private schools, which do an excellent job of educating our youth, often get top-notch athletes to their schools because of their academic prestige and elite sports programs, thus creating an advantage over many of the public schools, which have a finite boundary to draw from. Plus in a major city a private school can draw its students from the entire metro area and beyond. That, in itself, is the primary motivation for this proposal being considered. While I’m in favor of the passage of this proposal, I acknowledge it is flawed. I’m not, however, advocating change for the sake of change — I do believe this would be an improvement over the current system we have in place. Not everyone agrees with me, including Eastwood assistant principal and athletic director Jeff Hill. “In trying to appease some of the concerns that they’ve gotten before, the OHSAA has in some ways muddled the whole thing a little bit more instead of making it clearer,” said Hill. “I understand the purpose of it, why they feel that they need to do it. What we need to consider is how would this directive effect us. Some

of the things we came across, we felt we would be penalized. “One of the things (the proposal) talks about is, if you had kids that open-enrolled and they didn’t come until ninth grade, as opposed to kids who came before the seventh grade, you’d be punished. There are a lot of kids that come here because of academics. If they turn around and want to be in athletics, you get penalized for being a good academic school.” Hill notes that because his school often has between 8 to 10 foreign exchange students, and because some of them like to enrich their experience through athletics, the proposal would further hurt his school. Cardinal Stritch Catholic athletic director Craig Meinzer, who is enthusiastic about the proposal, believes challenges exist for both public and private schools. “I do see where they (the public schools) would be coming from,” Meinzer said. “Coaching at a public school for three years, you have to almost recruit legally to keep that kid from going to a private school. If you’re a private school, you can’t talk to a kid unless he or she contacts you. “Everybody thinks it’s easier to coach at a private school. The kids are coming from different schools and are coached differently, but it’s a plus because you could get any good athlete if they want to come there. If you have kids that are coming through your feeder system, they play together for a while and it’s easier coaching them because hopefully the lower level coaches would want to teach what the high school and middle school is learning.” For my money, Ridgewood football coach John Slusser, whose school is located in West Lafayette, best described the reason as to why change is needed. “When you see all the private schools winning state titles, you know there is a

problem,” he said in an interview with The Coshocton Tribune. “Anything is better than nothing and while I don’t think (this proposal) is the final answer, I feel like (the OHSAA) is trying to get something done.” His team was blown out in the Division V state semifinals to Youngstown Ursuline, 48-6, in 2009, so he knows first hand just how difficult it can be to face a powerhouse program from a private school. “I felt like we were as good as any public school in the state of Ohio,” he said. “Instead, we played Ursuline, who hammered us and Coldwater to win a state title. It just wasn’t a fair fight.”

Opera House announces its Live in the House Concerts Page Two by John Szozda

The best music you’ve never heard of.

Grammy award winner Barbara Bailey Hutchison will highlight the Live in The House Concert Series at the Pemberville Opera House for the 204-15 season. Hutchison won a Grammy in 1996 for Best Musical Recording for Children for her album of original lullabies. The singersongwriter has been performing for more than 20 years and you’ve heard her voice on commercials for McDonalds, Hallmark Cards, Heinz and other national advertisers. The Detroit native will appear at the opera house on October 4. Hutchison is another of the accomplished musical acts that Carol Bailey, artistic director for the opera house, calls “the best music you’ve never heard of.” Six other musical acts, a vaudeville magician/comedian and a silent movie night comprise the seventh Live in the House season funded in part by the Ohio Arts Council. Highlights include:  The Great Kaplan: A one-man, comedy-variety show inspired by the antics of Buster Keaton, The Smothers Brothers and Wile E Coyote. This Columbus, Ohio magician has appeared on The View and the Statler Brothers Show and has opened for Bobby Vinton, David Spade and Harry Blackstone, Jr.;  Lone Raven: These five musicians from south central Ohio play a blend of traditional music along with Irish Reels and Gypsy Fiddle Tunes. Lead singer Kara Markley also performs jigs and reels during the group’s show. As, you might expect, this one is scheduled in March to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day;  Russian Duo: Siberian native Oleg Kruglyakov plays the balalaika, a Russian stringed instrument, and American Terry Boyarsky plays the piano. The duo’s repertoire draws from Russian folk and classical music as well as Gypsy melodies. In addition, the two have their own interpretation of classic composers such as Schubert, Mozart, Bach and Rimsky-Korsakov. Rounding out the schedule are: Rick Prater & The Midnight Travelers, a bluegrass act from Indiana; The Voices of Harmony, a Northwest Ohio barbershop

The Muleskinner Band from Southern Ohio performed Saturday night in front of a packed house at the Pemberville Opera House. The concert was the last in a series of Live in the House Concerts for the 2013-14 season. (Photo courtesy of James Fields) group; Toledo favorites Ragtime Rick and the Chefs of Dixieland and Lee Murdock, a troubadour who sings about the history of the Great Lakes. Murdock sings his own songs and covers such folk artists as Shel Silverstein, Woody Guthrie and Pat Dailey. While admission to all concerts is $10, once again Andes Manta, a South American band that plays the traditional music from the Andes Mountains from Columbia to Tierra Del Fuego, will play for free, courtesy of the Ohio Arts Council. As you can see, the schedule tends to appeal more to the “gray haired crowd” than the tattooed, bling-bedazzled one. That’s by design Bailey says. After all, the

Pemberville Opera House was built in 1891 and many of the acts Bailey brings in play traditional, old-timey music. This past Saturday, for example, The Muleskinner Band played old favorites like You are My Sunshine, How Great Thou Art and Foggy Mountain Breakdown. About 130 attended Saturday’s concert, which is a little more than the average attendance of 110, Bailey said. The gate, along with a $4,550 grant from the Ohio Arts Council has kept the Live in the House series in the black for the six years of its existence. Attendance was up this year and Bailey hopes to encourage patrons to contribute to

the opera house drive to install an elevator to provide easier access to the secondfloor venue. Bailey secured a $220,000 state grant and needs to raise another $110,000. She will apply for a $50,000 community block grant from Wood County and attempt to raise the balance from opera house members and fundraisers. The opera house was the town’s gathering center at the turn of the 20th century, but fell into disrepair and disuse during World War II. The Pemberville Freedom Area Historical Society led the effort to restore the venue in 1999. The roof was replaced, the ceiling frescoes repainted using Rembrandt Oil Paint and the electrical and plumbing systems upgraded. The raised stage, high ceilings and solid construction contribute to the acoustics and the intimate setting assures you are close to the performers. If you haven’t attended a concert yet and you enjoy a variety of music, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Concerts are the first Saturday of the month September through May. They start and end at senior-friendly times, roughly 7 to 9:30. For more info or to donate to the elevator fund call Carol Bailey at 419-2874848 or go to pembervilleoperahouse.org.

Personal responsibility and determination go hand in hand Dare to Live by Bryan Golden

Willpower means you will find a way, no matter what or how long it takes.

At times you may feel discouraged, worn out, frustrated, annoyed, or tired. Perhaps giving up appears to be an attractive option. Emotional swings are normal. It’s easy to keep moving forward when things are going well. It’s a completely different matter when nothing seems to be going right. In order to move forward, you must take responsibility for your life. Blaming other people, circumstances, or situations gets you stuck in inaction. Making excuses justifies your position rather than motivating you to progress forward. Problems, obstacles, and adversity are part of life. The bigger your goals, the more you will have to overcome. There is a solution for every problem, a way to surmount each obstacle, and a strategy to deal with any adversity. Determination to move forward is key to discovering your next step. Success is achieved by making progress one step at a time. The rationale for this approach is simple; becoming mired in the past or frozen where you are now never works. Study the past in order to determine what worked and what didn’t. Before you can move forward it’s imperative for you to understand where you are currently and

what factors caused your present situation. Only after you identify what brought you to your existing circumstances, are you in a position to formulate a plan for mov-

ing forward. Conversely, moving forward by addressing irrelevant issues is extremely frustrating because either nothing changes, or your situation worsens. As you move forward, you must change your strategy compared to the actions that have brought you here. Doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result is a definition of insanity. There is no benefit to punishing yourself for past mistakes or bad judgments. Worry is a useless waste of energy. Feeling sorry for yourself is pointless. Taking positive action in a new direction is essential. The only way anything changes is because of changes you make. Thinking before you act is always a wise approach. Acting in haste diminishes your chances of being satisfied with the results. Start by listing all possible courses of action. Evaluate the pros and cons of each option. Regardless of how prudent you are, some things you attempt will not work out as planned. There is no way to prevent this. All you can do is make the best possible decision based on all of the facts at hand. Paralysis by over analysis keeps you frozen in place. Effectively moving forward is dependent on your independent assessment and

decision. Having to deal with criticism, pressure, and even ridicule is not uncommon. Follow your own path. Moving forward based on someone else’s requirements rarely results in your satisfaction. When confronting an adverse situation, your response should be, “Where do I go from here? What is my next step?” This mindset propels you forward. It focuses your energy on positive action. The only difference between people who continuously move forward and those who don’t is mindset. An attitude of, “I’ll find a way,” is substantially more effective than one of, “I don’t know what to do.” Willpower enables you to constantly move forward. Willpower is different than giving something a try. Willpower means you will find a way, no matter what or how long it takes. Trying, on the other hand, opens the door for the possibility of failure. Willpower does not. The next time you are faced with a challenge, determine what action is necessary in order to move forward. The size of the steps you take is not important, your direction is. Taking your first step is of paramount significance. It breaks through procrastination and fear. It is your first step that gets you moving forward.

“Andy’s Army” Garage Sale to benefit canine cancer By Tammy Walro Press Features Editor twalro@presspublications.com Andy, a Golden Retriever with soulful eyes and a gregarious personality captured Sue Bechtel’s heart from the moment in 2008 when she brought him home from the Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, Inc. (GRRR). Andy was not Sue’s first rescue, nor her first Golden Retriever. She knew Goldens were prone to certain diseases, including hip dysplasia, thyroid and skin problems and cancer, so when he developed a limp in the summer of 2009, she called the vet to schedule an appointment. “They thought he may have some arthritis,” said Sue, who lives outside of Whitehouse. “Though we thought he was a middle-aged dog, he may have been older – with rescues, it’s often hard for them to know for sure, so arthritis seemed a possibility.” Though the vet prescribed medication to ease Andy’s symptoms, his condition deteriorated. “He’d be walking along and he would lose strength in his leg and he’d go down,” Sue said. Concerned, her vet suggested Sue take Andy to have an MRI. The testing, which she had done at a specialty facility in Michigan, showed there was a tumor in one of the vertebrae in Andy’s neck. “The tumor was compressing his spinal column and affecting the nerves in his leg, which was why he was having difficulty walking,” Sue said. “The diagnosis of cancer was shocking, devastating,” Sue said. “I said, ‘We rescued him once and we’ll make every effort we can to try to rescue him from cancer, too.’” Andy underwent surgery to remove the osteosarcoma. The veterinary oncologist, also based in Michigan, worked with Sue’s local vet to coordinate chemotherapy treatments. “We opted to forgo radiation, which would have required Andy to stay for extended periods at either Michigan State or Ohio State,” she said. In the end, Andy succumbed to the cancer. “He didn’t have a long life after the surgery, but for a few months, he had a pretty normal life,” she said. “He could

Sue Bechtel’s beloved Golden Retriever, who died just months after being diagnosed with cancer, was the inspiration for “Andy’s Army,” an organization that raises funds to support canine cancer research. walk and run – he could even tree squirrels. “It’s very hard thing to go through,” she said. “The tests just to get a diagnosis are very expensive. Treatment is also costly and often doesn’t offer too much promise. It’s a real dilemma for many pet owners who want to do all they can for their sick dogs, but can’t afford even basic testing. “After Andy died, I did some research about canine cancer,” Sue said. “His plight was far from unique as canine cancer remains the leading cause of death among all older dogs and is prevalent among many breeds of dogs including Golden Retrievers.” As many people struck by tragic loss do, Sue looked for a way for something positive to come out of Andy’s death. In 2011, she started “Andy’s Army,” an organization aimed at promoting wellness and awareness about cancer in dogs, while also raising funds for research efforts. In 2011, the first Andy’s Army 5K and 1-Mile Walk was held, netting about

$1,000, which was donated to veterinary research programs at Michigan State, Ohio State and Colorado State. The following year, the fundraiser raised $3,600 which went to the Golden Retriever Foundation, to be directed to cancer studies and research funds. Word and support spread for the effort, and last year’s event raised $4,500. “Though we’re committed to funding research, as we go along, we’re going to look into how we might help people in the community whose dogs get cancer,” Sue said. Sue, with fellow volunteer Patti Reitz, are planning a Garage Sale to benefit Andy’s Army Canine Cancer Project June 12 and 13 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at 1528 Woodville Rd., Millbury. A preview day will be held Wednesday, June 11 from 5-8 p.m. Donations are being sought for the sale. To arrange for pick-up of donations, call 419-875-5272. Because May is Pet Cancer Awareness

Month, Sue urges pet owners to become familiar with the 10 symptoms of canine cancer, developed by the American Veterinary Medical Association: 1. An abnormal swelling that persists or continues to grow. 2. Sores that do not heal. 3. Weight loss. 4. Bleeding or discharge from any body opening. 5. Offensive odor. 6. Difficulty eating or swallowing. 7. Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina. 8. Persistent lameness or stiffness. 9. Difficulty breathing, urination or defecation. 10. Loss of appetite. “Many of the symptoms of canine cancer are subtle – and they’re often attributed to a dog just getting older,” Sue said.

Protection starts with immunization to prevent illness As summer camps, fairs, vacations and family picnics take you and your family away to many fun-filled places during the warm weather months, now is a good time to get vaccinated. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reminds Ohioans that immunizations are the most effective way to prevent illness from vaccine-preventable diseases. The ongoing measles and mumps outbreaks in Ohio also serve as a reminder to all Ohioans that they should be up-to-date on immunizations. “Activities that bring large groups

of people together can accelerate the spread of these diseases,” said ODH State Epidemiologist Dr. Mary DiOrio. “When coming into close contact with sick individuals, immunizations can provide the protection you need to keep from getting ill.” Given the ongoing measles and mumps outbreaks, ODH recommends that Ohioans become familiar with the signs and symptoms of the diseases. Symptoms for measles include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, sore throat and a red rash appearing three to five days after the start of the symptoms.

Symptoms of mumps include runny nose, cough and swelling of the salivary glands. When individuals are fully vaccinated, the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is 97 percent effective in preventing the measles and 88 percent effective in preventing the mumps. Those who are not up-to-date on their immunizations should contact their healthcare provider or local health department and receive the MMR vaccine if there is no medical reason not to do so. ODH and its local public health partners support the vaccine recommenda-

Seeing change as a positive experience From the American Counseling Association

Counseling Corner The

It’s inevitable. Change happens. Often it’s something minor, but it can also be a major change that leaves you feeling frightened, stressed and unsure of what’s coming next. But change doesn’t have to be upsetting or a negative situation. It’s your choice whether you want to see a transition as an opportunity for growth and improvement, or whether you want to desperately hang on to the status quo and stay in your comfort zone. There are things you can do to emphasize the good in change: • Decide on a positive attitude – When you look at a transition as an opportunity to grow and add to your world, you can approach change as something to enjoy and look forward to. Make this your mantra: “Happiness is a decision.” • Use your support network – If a change has you feeling sad, confused or overwhelmed, look for support from others. It may be family or friends who are willing to listen in a non-judgmental way. Or you may be more comfortable speaking with a member of the clergy or a therapist. It may surprise you to receive help and support from unexpected places. • List the stable things in your life – When things are changing, it’s easy to feel totally off-balance, but the reality in most cases is that there are many things in your

life, from friends and family who love you to familiar daily routines that will still be there for you. Simply listing them can remind you of the stability still in your life. • Give yourself time – Life changes can happen in an instant, but orienting yourself to what has ended and what is coming can take time. Losing a job, experiencing the death of someone close, being widowed or divorced – they’re all changes in which you need to allow yourself time to adjust to your new life situation. • Explore the opportunities in the transition – It’s often said that for every door that closes, another door opens. When a change happens, take the time to explore what new chances and options it may be bringing. Think in different directions and about the new things that might be possible. For most of us, change is never easy, but it often provides opportunities that might otherwise have been missed. Approach change as a positive experience and you just may find it is.

Volunteers go bald for cancer research For some women – and men too, – going bald might be a hair-raising experience, but more than 20 intrepid volunteers signed up to shave their heads May 4 at the Woodville Fire Department in an event to raise funds to help conquer childhood cancer. The volunteers braved an encounter with the clippers to benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research. Usable hair was collected and donated to Children With Hair Loss, an organization that offers wigs to children with medically-related hair loss. The foundation mobilizes volunteers, supporters and donors to continue the battle against this devastating disease. This is the 5th annual Sandusky County EMS-hosted event. “Some are ‘repeat customers,” according to Kari Grehl, St. Baldrick’s volunteer organizer. “Tom Waugeman, of Clyde, donated for fifth year; Ron Bird, of Fremont, shaved four years. “In total, we had 19 ‘shavees,’ including seven women, and three more who donated hair,” she said. Donations are still being accepted online at StBaldricks.org or email knittingmedic@gmail.com

Autumn Holzemer and her mom Kari Grehl, show off their new hairstyles after the event held at the Woodville Fire Department in support of St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Raising awareness about stroke and its warning signs When it comes to stroke, knowing your risk factors, recognizing symptoms and acting quickly can save you from death or permanent disability. “Stroke, until recently, has been the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States,” said John M. Whapham, MD, MS, FSNIS, medical director of Stroke and Endovascular Neurosugery. “A stroke occurs when there is a sudden loss of blood flow to part of the brain. This is caused by a blockage, rupture, or injury of a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. Someone in our country experiences a stroke every 45 seconds. Too often people do not recognize when a stroke is happening, losing critical time.” Time lost is brain lost. In fact, 32,000 brain cells die in one second of blood loss/ blockage, and 1.9 million cells die in the

$5.00 OFF

first minute of blood loss. It is crucial to recognize the signs of a stroke, and call 911 or get to the emergency room immediately. “Stroke Centers, such as the one at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, offer treatment that may reduce the risk of damage from the most common types of strokes,” Dr. Whapham said. “However, medical treatment options are available only within three hours of the patient’s initial symptoms at most, with an extended window of time available at centers offering neuro-endovascular procedures. “Neuro-endovascular treatment, which we offer at St. V’s, offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional neurosurgery,” he said. “Various minimally invasive clot retrieval devices and intra-arterial infusions can extend the time frame for effective treatment and improve outcomes for stroke patients.”

Timing and proper treatment can mean the difference between life and death, recovery and disability. Warning signs of a stroke include: • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms or legs, especially on one side. • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking and/or understanding. • Sudden trouble seeing out of one or both eyes. • Sudden trouble walking, loss of balance or dizziness. • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause. Stroke symptoms can appear the day of or even days before a stroke. Listen to your body, and contact your doctor about any potential stroke symptoms. It is important not only to monitor our own health but also that of those around you.

Just as it is important to recognize the symptoms of a stroke, you also should learn about your risk factors. Research has shown that you can reduce your stroke risk by living a healthy lifestyle. It is believed that 80 percent of strokes are preventable. Take charge of your health and prevent stroke by: • Controlling high blood pressure. • Not smoking. • Eating a low fat, low cholesterol diet. • Being physically active. • Maintaining a healthy body weight. • Drinking alcohol minimally/not at all. • Managing diabetes. Talk to your doctor today about your risk factors for stroke and what you can do to control them.

Raise awareness

Support tanning bed legislation By Karl K. Kellawan, MD President, Ohio Dermatological Association, Inc. On behalf of the Ohio Dermatological Association (ODA), I am writing to raise awareness of the month of May designated as “Melanoma and Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month” by the Ohio General Assembly. In an effort to curb the skin cancer epidemic in Ohio and the United States, the ODA is educating and advocating for skin cancer detection and prevention. More than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year and approximately one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Of serious concern is the alarming increased incidence of the potentially deadly malignant melanoma in young people. Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-24 years old. The incidence of malignant melanoma is especially increasing in young adult women, due to their exposure to hazardous ultraviolet (UV) tanning bed radiation. A recent report demonstrated that using indoor tanning increases one’s chances of de-

veloping melanoma, especially if utilized before age 35. Another study published in December 2011 found indoor tanners have a 69 percent increased risk of developing the most common form of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, even if a person only used a tanning bed once in his or her lifetime. More alarming, the risk was even higher for those who began indoor tanning prior to age 16. The science is clear – if you use indoor tanning beds, your risk of developing skin cancer significantly increases. In honor of this important designation in Ohio law, we are using the month of May to urge lawmakers to support efforts like HB 131 and SB 113, legislation that would limit minors’ access to dangerous UV tanning bed radiation. For more than 25 years, the ODA has educated our youth and adults about the dangers of hazardous UV tanning bed radiation. While education is important, especially during this month, education is not enough. We urge you to contact your state legislators and ask them to support this important public health initiative and help prevent skin cancer in one of Ohio’s greatest assets – its children.

Give your mom some extra help By Erin Thompson Social Security Public Affairs Specialist Mother’s Day here. It’s always nice to give Mom a card, flowers or candy, but this year, people all over the country are helping their moms save an estimated $4,000 annually on the cost of Medicare prescription drugs. You can help your mom too — and it won’t cost you a dime. If your mother has Medicare coverage and has limited income and resources, she may be eligible for Extra Help — available through Social Security — to pay part of her monthly premiums, annual deductibles and prescription copayments. To figure out whether your mother is eligible, Social Security needs to know her income and the value of her savings, investments and real estate (other than the home she lives in). To qualify for the Extra Help, she must receive Medicare and have: • Income limited to $17,505 for an individual or $23,595 for a married couple living together. Even if your mom’s annual income is higher, she still may be able to get some help. Some examples where income may be higher include if she and, if married, her spouse: —Support other family members who live with them; —Have earnings from work; or

—Live in Alaska or Hawaii. • Resources limited to $13,440 for an individual or $26,860 for a married couple living together. Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count her house or car as resources. We have an easy-to-use online application that you can help Mom complete. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp. To apply by phone or have an application mailed to you, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-1020). To learn more about the Medicare prescription drug plans and special enrollment periods, visit www.medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227; TTY 1-877-486-2048). This Mother’s Day, give your mom a gift she can really use without spending a dime — savings of around $4,000 a year on her Medicare prescription drug costs. Flowers wither and candy won’t last long, but the Extra Help through Social Security will keep on giving throughout the year. And keep in mind as Father’s Day approaches, you can get the same “free gift” of Extra Help for Dad. Learn more by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp.

East Toledo’s “Man of Trees”

Man forgotten but the product of his passion still lives By Lou Hebert Press Contributing Writer

Louis Hirschy

Top photo, one of Hirschy’s trees still stands today along Greenwood, East Toledo. Bottom photo, Hirschy’s cherished Zurich Bible.

this: “To Hirschy, trees are a religion. They are his friends and his companions. Almost it seems they talk to him of their troubles and they answer to his care by growing straight and tall.” If you walk the neighborhoods around Hirschy’s old house along Greenwood Street, you can still see many of those old trees, now thick and tall and gnarled with age. Planted as saplings by Hirschy himself. Also, still standing, is Hirschy’s home,

which is not much more than a remnant of a distant past. Gone are the flowers and shrubs and the small “Garden of Eden” that Hirschy planted on the property. It was in this verdant paradise he created, that Hirschy was said to have frequently relaxed with a good book to read. Today, his sanctuary of nature, is gone. But for a few ancient old vines twisted around a fence, the only other vestige I could find of his private bower of greenery was the stump of an old sycamore that Hirschy

To Hirschy, this was nothing less than an act of desecration.

You’ve probably never heard of Louis Hirschy. But, if you’ve lived in East Toledo or spent any time there, you enjoyed the product of his passion. His works of art, if you will. For Louis Hirschy, was a sculptor, an artist of landscape and his medium was trees. Lots of them. This mostly forgotten Swiss immigrant who arrived in Toledo in the latter part of the 19th century, is credited with planting a forest of trees in East Toledo. Thousands of trees that helped to create an urban woodland on the east side of the river. These giants of Maple, and Oak and Elm and Sycamore were planted one by one, year and after year with Hirschy’s hand guiding each root stock into the earth with a love of nature that was deep and reverent. Today, more than a century later, many of those trees, or their offspring, still live today and tower above the streets as a living legacy to this “Man of Trees.” So, who was Louis Hirschy and why did he do this? Hirschy came to the United States from Switzerland at an early age in about 1875, and after living for awhile in eastern Indiana, where he worked at various jobs and attended college at Valparaiso University, he and his wife Louise, found their way to Toledo, settling into a wooden two-story home at 503 5th Street near Greenwood in East Toledo. Hirschy, despite his academic training and background, worked for awhile at the Toledo News Bee selling subscriptions and later, worked the rest of his life as a laborer at the Toledo Shipyards on Front Street. It seems an odd career choice for a man like Louis Hirschy who was as enamored with books and literature as he was with trees and nature. In his 1936 obituary in the Toledo News Bee, he was called a “student of world literature” and was surrounded by a 1000 books in the study of his home where he was found dead by his two sons at the age of 78. One of those books was a cherished and rare Zurich Bible, printed in 1531, which he obtained while selling bibles in Indiana during his youth. It is said he gladly traded one of his new bibles for the early German language Zurich Bible, which was the first printed Bible in recorded history. That Zurich Bible owned by Hirschy is now at the Toledo Public Library’s Rare Books collection and can be viewed upon request. It is the oldest printed book in the collection and may well be one of the oldest Bibles in the United States. There are even some handwritten notes in it, from Hirschy about the bible’s contents and the scores of stunning and rare block wood cut illustrations from artist Hans Holbein. Ironically, while he was a religious man, Hirschy also appeared to be a student of evolutionist Charles Darwin. I have found that this East Toledo shipyard worker published several scholarly articles in 1902 in defense of Darwin’s controversial writings and theories. It is not surprising then that Hirschy also embraced a love of trees and nature that went far beyond a casual hobby. An article published in the News Bee in 1923, called Hirschy, East Toledo’s “Man of Trees” and praised his passions for tree planting like

planted and took great pride in. So proud of this towering tree, that he made his complaint heard at Toledo city hall after overhead linemen, cut away large sections of its upper branches in 1923. To Hirschy, this was nothing less than an act of desecration. The axes of the workers had ruined the symmetry of the giant branches aloft and Hirschy let the Mayor know of his disgust for what the workers had done. That towering sycamore, by the way, survived its maiming and lived into this century. It was still visible in the photo of the house from the county auditor’s office just a few years ago. Today, however, it is gone. All that remains is a rotting old stump of a tree between the sidewalk and street, shorn off by the teeth of a chainsaw blade. These are the last of the big trees that formed a perennial summer canopy of shade for decades over this area of town. There is one thing, however, that Hirschy planted that will likely live longer than the trees. Not a tree, not a shrub, not a flower, but a “seed” harvested from the arbor of literature. That being the name of the street where he lived. For, when Hirschy moved to the neighborhood in 1894, it was still a rural crossroads and Walden Street was called Fifth Street. But, because of his appreciation for the writings of Henry David Thoreau about Walden Pond, Louis Hirschy, along with other neighbors, went to Toledo City Council in 1905 and requested the name of his street be changed from Fifth Street to “Walden Street”. Council approved. From then on, 503 Walden Street is where Hirschy called home, and lived out the balance of his abundant life. Specifically, Walden and Greenwood, a fitting name and place for Toledo’s “Man of Trees. Lou Hebert has more on this story as well as other stories on local history on his website www.toledogazette.wordpress.com.

St. Kateri to use new learning model in classroom By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer news@presspublications.com St. Kateri Catholic Schools announced a partnership with the University of Notre Dame and the Diocese of Toledo to enhance the educational experience at the school by using blended learning. The partnership is to make Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School and St. Kateri Catholic Academy the first Catholic schools in the Toledo area to utilize a blended learning model of teaching. It is a style of learning that integrates technology and allows students to learn at their own pace. Rev. Eric Schild, President of St. Kateri Catholic Schools, speaking at an Oregon-Northwood Rotary Club weekly breakfast last week, said a school in Grand Rapids, Michigan found that their students in one of the national standardized tests, in a three-year period, went from the 50th percentile to the 94th percentile. “That’s remarkable, and they attribute it to blended learning,” Rev. Schild said. St. Kateri Catholic Schools will implement the new model by working with ACE (Alliance for Catholic Education) Consulting from the University of Notre Dame. “We really believe it’s going to change our educational system because it’s forcing our teachers to look at education in a different way,” Rev. Schild said. The blended learning initiative is led

at Notre Dame by the Associate Director of ACE Consulting, T.J. D’Agostino, who has developed ACE Consulting’s blended learning and school improvement model and has begun to replicate the program in cities around the country. “They have become experts in blended learning,” Rev. Schild said. “Blended learning is somewhat of an old concept but somewhat of a new concept with the technology that is present.” There are four models of blended learning currently being used in select schools across the county. CSCHS and SKCA will be implementing a model known as Station Rotation next school year. This is a model that has students learn in the traditional classroom setting, as well as online and in small groups. The school will do this by continuing to give each high school student an iPad and put 10 computers in each classroom for kindergarten through fifth grade. “It allows the kids to move ahead at their own pace, or to stick behind at their own pace, and it doesn’t cripple the teacher who has to be forced to teach at the middle level,” Rev. Schild said. “That’s one of the things that cripples our teachers is when they have a classroom of 25 students or however many, and you have kids at this level or that level, and you have kids all around at different levels. How do they do that? How do they challenge this kid? How do they help this kid? It’s a challenge to be a teacher,” Rev. Schild continued.

It allows the kids to move ahead at their own pace, or to stick behind at their own pace...

Learning from ‘video games’ Rev. Schild said the teaching model not only takes advantage of state-of-the-art technology, it makes learning more enjoyable for students and teachers. For the teachers, he said computer data often eliminates the need to grade papers on a nightly basis. “So what has happened is there are these software companies that have these cool things out there now when it comes to blended learning, and it gives the teachers instant data on how the kids are doing. It also allows the kids to move forward so that you could have, theoretically, a kid who is in the eighth grade doing 10th grade math work. “That’s awesome. Parents love it. It kind of replaces the need for honors class because in one classroom you could have honor students, you have the remedial work going on, everything, but it transforms what the teacher’s role is. “The traditional role of the teacher is the sage on the stage. ‘I’m going to spew

forth the knowledge, I’m going to put it into you, and then you’re going to regurgitate that back.’ Now, the teacher becomes more of the ‘guide on the side’ — which is one of those Notre Dame educational jargon things. “Nonetheless, it’s an awesome thing. You could have a teacher over at this station who is working with a group of students and helping them through, and you have another group of students who are over here on the computers doing the content provider stuff, the software stuff, and then you have another group over here doing small group project-based stuff. “So, it keeps the students moving. You know, the kids of today are the sound-bite generate. What’s awesome about the content is it is almost video-game like, so the kids in these various schools that are doing it, they love it. It makes them feel like they are playing a video game, and we know that is a big thing these days. But, it’s allowing them to learn at a rate that is absolutely fantastic.”

Genoa Genoa Homecoming Homecoming

Genoa honor students to be recognized By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press news@presspublications.com A group of Genoa parents is stepping up a year-end recognition program in hopes of shining a brighter light on academic prowess. A partnership between the Genoa Academic Committee and University of Toledo officials lands the top 20 students from freshmen to senior classes at a recognition dinner at the university the evening of May 20. Tables will be decked out with linen clothes, fine china and centerpieces originating from Penta Career Center. “It really will be something to see,” said GAC President Kellie Szymanski. The meal is complimentary for the students. Up to four guests can attend per student for a fee. After receiving school district awards, the students and their parents or companions will stroll across the campus to hear the evening’s speakers Dr. Clint Longenecker, professor of management at UT’s College of Business and Innovation, and Dr. Lakeesha Ransom, dean of the Jesup Scott Honors College. Named to honor the former newspaper editor who established The University of Toledo, the Jesup Scott Honors College was founded in 1963. Relaunched in 2013, the college is highly selective and distinguishes itself from other honors colleges with a unique blend of admission requirements that not only take into account academic performance, but also activities that demonstrate a high level of motivation and achievement, according to the college website. The event feeds into the mission of the fledging GAC, which aims to put academics on the radar of students. GAC has spent the first couple of years since its inception formulating a collage of incentive programs that’ll challenge kids to focus on good grades by providing a twist of fun. Some of those programs include ice cream bars celebrating the end of grading periods and an honors breakfast. About 211 students attended the first breakfast last fall, according to Genoa High School Principal Cari Buehler. But the opportunity to work with UT puts the goal in real perspective, Szymanski said. “Before I left, that was my goal, to have some incentive programs established that

reached all the way down to the freshmen,” she said. Syzmanski’s last child wraps up his junior year this spring and she’ll begin her final year of service in the 2014-15 school year. She’s coordinated the event with Cam Cruickshank, UT’s vice president for enrollment management online education. Cruickshank has a son who is a high school junior. “With a son who’s a junior, Cam knows the importance of acclimating kids to colleges sooner,” Szymanski said. Dinners such as this give freshmen and sophomores one of their first opportunities to experience a slice of university life not so far from home, Szymanski added. Cruickshank agrees. Colleges across the nation are vying for the talented academic students as they face declining enrollments spurred by rising college costs and a still sluggish economy. This pilot program with Genoa High School aims to put top honor students in touch with college life. “Some of these kids are first generation college bound students. Some of them and their parents have never been on a college campus,” the administrator explained. The honors banquet was also another way to extend UT’s partnerships into the community with emphasis on academics and their impact, Cruikshank said. Each year, UT officials receive hundreds of donation requests from schools across the region. The requests range from fiscal donations for science fairs and sponsorships to even underwriting the costs of a scoreboard, he explained. When Szymanski approached him about a donation toward a GAC project, the two put their heads together to come up with the formal honors banquet on the college campus. “Dr. Longenecker is a strong Christian man. He’ll give a real upbeat and positive message,” Cruickshank said. And Ransom will spread the message that the honors college is on the lookout to increase its enrollment by attracting goal-oriented students who love to be challenged. Cruikshank had hoped to include a couple of other schools in the recognition dinner but their schedules didn’t mesh with the date GAC officials had requested. “If this pilot project with Genoa works out, I would love to open it up to other schools in our region,” Cruickshank said.

Cam knows the importance of acclimating kids to colleges sooner.

These Waite High School sweethearts were married March 14, 1964. They celebrated their anniversary with family at a dinner party given by their children and spouses. Harold and Carol are now living a stress free life after raising Karen, Kim and Bob. They enjoy the good life with grandsons Michael, Shane, Ethan, Dylan, Zach, Drake and Tyler. Harold is retired from LOF/Pilkington Glass and now spends his time doing whatever he wants to do. Carol spends her time telling Harold what he wants to do. If you see one of them out and about be sure to tell them how old they look.

In Loving Memory Dolores “Lori” Linke 5-12-1935 ~ 10-3-2013

Congratulations Dr. Janee B. Whitmer & Jangus Whitner

Janee graduated with her Doctorate of Pharmacy and Jangus graduated with his Honors in Bachelor of Pharmacy! We are so proud of you both! We love you, Dad, Mom, Frank, Brooke Skyler, Brandon & Blake, Big Brandon, Erica

Don’t think of her as gone away~ her journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets~ this earth is only one... Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched... for nothing loved is ever lost~ and she was loved so much. Love, your family
