Found innocent of sexual assault

Exonerated man gives his version By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer We are taught in this country that an individual is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Maybe in the court of law, but Genoa native Joe Bergman says the same is not necessarily true in the court of public opinion. Bergman, a U.S. Army officer, was acquitted on May 16 of this year in Wood County Common Pleas Court of a sexual battery charge that was brought against him just over a year ago. It’s surprising that something so casual as meeting with someone in a busy movie

theater parking lot to say goodbye for 10 minutes could turn into so much more, but Bergman says that is what happened to him. On the night of March 30, 2012, Bergman met with a female Genoa High School student in his car at the parking lot at the Levis Commons RAVE Movie Theater to say goodbye before he was to leave for military training the next day. Even though Bergman insists that nothing more than words were exchanged between the two, an anonymous letter sent to Genoa Superintendent Dennis Mock brought about a felony charge against Bergman in early May, 2012. From that point, the situation drastically changed as one thing led to another.

“It went from being characterized as an inappropriate relationship to an inappropriate sexual relationship,” Bergman said, “to being reported that I was caught in a compromising position by Perrysburg city police at Levis Commons.” Press requests for interviews were made to Mock, Wood County prosecuting attorney Heather Baker, and Perrysburg detective Pat Jones, but all three parties declined. Bergman understands that it’s reasonable for someone without knowledge of the case to have doubts about his innocence. He says there are three things that should overwhelmingly convince a skeptic about the case.

The Lucas County dog warden is hoping a drop in the adoption fee will reduce overcrowding of dogs at the pound. A dog can be adopted for just $25 this month in a special promotion, “Christmas in July.” Dog Warden Julie Lyle said the kennels are close to capacity with dogs looking for homes. Several more are coming in every day. “We have 166 dogs currently and some of them have been waiting a long time for a home,” Lyle said. “We had 10 dogs per day come in last week and we are approaching capacity.” Lyle would not give a number when it came to capacity, but said the pound has kennels for both large and smaller dogs and that it’s hard to define. Two-thirds of the dogs are picked up as strays while one third are owner surrenders, she said. Lyle said she has “heard it all” when it comes to reasons people give up their dogs. “I have heard they had to get rid of the dog because they are moving, they or a child has allergies, the dog barks too much, and they can’t house train the dog,” Lyle said. “The problem is, many people get these dogs as puppies and they do not train them properly. Now they have a dog with an annoying issue. Many of the dogs we have just need a little help becoming great family members.” Lyle said at any given time, approximately 40 percent of the dogs in the pound are pit bull mixes. The pound also houses dogs that are being “bite quarantined” as well as those being held by courts. Dogs could be euthanized if space becomes limited. However, Lyle said it has never happened since Lucas County Commissioners hired her in March 2010 to replace controversial long time warden Tom Skeldon, who had resigned in January of that year following intense criticism for having one of the highest kill shelters in the area. “Space is a limiting factor,” said Lyle. “We do not want to euthanize because of space. We work hard to make sure we do not have to do that. We have never had to do that since I took office. We hold special adoption events like this and we work with

JULY 8, 2013

Exonerated man gives his version Continued from front page First, Bergman says there was no physical evidence, DNA, or medical evidence that supported the charge. Second, Baker admitted during the trial that there were inconsistencies in the accuser’s story. Third, the jury took just one-and-a-half hours to reach a verdict, a relatively short period of time that often indicates the case was open and shut. Arrested at Fort Leonard Bergman says there is even more to the story — that it will continue to play out in his life as a soldier and in his finances. He says the most embarrassing moment of Bergman’s life came 13 months ago when he was arrested by U.S. Marshals at Fort Leonard Wood Army Base in Missouri. Bergman was taken into custody in front of an entire formation of soldiers and then sat in jail for 21 days awaiting extradition back to Ohio. Now, Bergman says he can put the trial behind him and regain his military career. He knows that in some people’s eyes, he will never be exonerated. For some, he was guilty the minute his name and picture were paraded on television with the story that he had been charged with sexual battery. Add that he has tens of thousands of dollars in legal bills yet to be paid, and you get a better idea of what he’s going through. And that’s why he’s speaking out — he wants to set the story straight. “I enjoy so many things that I took for granted before, and that is not easy to say because I didn’t take much for granted,” Bergman, a 2002 Oak Harbor graduate, said. “After I came so close to having my freedom taken away, I enjoy things that might have been stripped from me so much more. Face-to-face, people have been pretty supportive. But the rumor mill says otherwise — that the Army bailed me out or there was some lawyer trick, et cetera. “Public perception seems to dictate

Joe Bergman reality in our society today,” Bergman continued. “A not guilty verdict in the court of law means I’m acquitted and exonerated of the charge. I’ve been cleared completely in a legal sense. However, in the real world, the damage is already done. There will forever be a shroud of skepticism and doubt around me. It tears me up because I’ve done more for most people than they have done for themselves or this nation, and yet they can stand in judgment of me, glare at me and talk behind my back. But they don’t have the integrity or courage to address me face-to-face.” Bergman says he cannot trust just anyone any more, “Only those who are close to me,” Bergman said. “It has made me less open and more guarded. I don’t trust law enforcement like I used to or approve of the amount of unchecked power a county prosecutor has and the unbelievable reality that they can ruin someone’s life knowing there is no evidence that supports a charge, and then walk away without suffering any consequences whatsoever.

“Until it happens to you, you really don’t realize how the system works — the uphill battle you face once you are indicted and charged with a felony offense and the massive amounts of money you need to fight a state or federal government with almost unlimited resources.” Bergman believes that Baker and Jones, the man who conducted the investigation, knew there were problems with the accuser’s account. “Heather Baker and Detective Pat Jones knew from the very beginning there were major inconsistencies with this case and yet they still pushed it forward,” Bergman said. “They knew the Ottawa County Sheriff Department reports didn’t match the Perrysburg police reports. Once Perrysburg police detective Pat Jones took over, he conducted multiple interviews with students and yet there was only one report and zero audio recordings. That means we really don’t know what was actually said, only what Detective Jones put in his report,” Bergman said. Mock stated in testimony that what started the investigation against Bergman was the anonymous letter he received from a parent. Mock added that the parent wanted to be kept anonymous in fear of retaliation from Bergman himself and that he never handed the letter over to Children’s Services or any law enforcement agency during the investigation. Additionally, Mock testified that he had lost the anonymous letter until three weeks before the trial and that was the reason Bergman’s defense team had never seen it for nearly a year. Despite this and the fact that there was no physical evidence, DNA, or medical evidence, Baker chose to continue prosecuting the case. Bergman wonders why they continued pursuing a case. “It’s not what I fought to protect and defend,” Bergman said. “It’s not what (former Oak Harbor wrestler killed in military service) Keith Kline and thousands of other men and women died to uphold, and it certainly is not the vision or intent our forefathers had when they forged our nation.”

Honor Flight scaling back on applications Citing a long waiting list coupled with a shortage in funding, Honor Flight Northwest Ohio is scaling back on the acceptance of veteran applications for flights to Washington, D.C. The organization will continue to accept applications from World War II veterans who have not already seen the World War II Memorial. Applications for veterans from the Korean and Vietnam wars will not be accepted. In making the announcement, Honor

Flight Northwest Ohio cited the volume of applications being submitted and the number of veterans currently on the waiting list (over 600 as of late June), along with a decrease in overall funding and an increase in flight costs, which is currently just over $72,000 per trip. Honor Flight Northwest Ohio has one more flight scheduled for 2013, set for Oct. 9. Two flights are currently being planned for 2014. Veterans who have not yet applied to

Honor Flight Northwest Ohio should note that there are several other Honor Flight “hubs” in Ohio, including Flag City Honor Flight (Findlay); Honor Flight CAK (Akron/ Canton); Honor Flight Cleveland; Honor Flight Columbus; Honor Flight Dayton and Honor Flight Tri-State (Cincinnati). Information on the various Honor Flight “hubs” is available online at To contact Honor Flight Northwest Ohio, call 419-410-7729 or email

No room at pound Continued from front page outside organizations so we do not have to euthanize.” Lyle said many factors contribute to an uptick in the numbers of dogs coming to the pound, such as the weather. “In the middle of winter, there are not as many dogs running loose,” Lyle said. “The kids being home from school also adds to the problem. The kids are running in and out of the house, not paying attention, and the dog takes off.” The pound has a variety of dogs up for adoption. Big, medium and small, everything from Bull Mastiff mixes to Chihuahuas, puppies, adults and seniors, can be found there. After the promotion is over in August, the adoption fee goes back up to $100, she said. Dogs are spayed or neutered, wormed, vaccinated and have been heartworm tested. They have been evaluated for behavior and microchipped, Lyle said, adding they have a couple of dogs who went through the PHD (Prisoners Helping Dogs) program who are especially well trained. Some dogs have been at the pound longer than others. Hopes are high Christmas will come early and they will be adopted during the event. “These are wonderful dogs all looking for good homes,” said Lyle. “Some dogs have sponsors that have donated part of their adoption fee so the only thing that will need to be paid is the license fee, which is $25 in Lucas County.” The Lucas County Dog Warden, located at 410 S. Erie Street in Toledo, is also seeking volunteers. Donations such as blankets, towels and dog supplies are always appreciated. The warden’s office recommends that your dog always wear a license and proper identification so that it may be found if it ever goes missing. To search for a missing dog, or for more information, call the warden’s office at 419-2132800.

Art Van plans new store in Oregon By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor The Oregon Planning Commission voted in favor of variances in the zoning code for property at 2601 Navarre Avenue to clear the way for the development of an Art Van Furniture Store. Plans call for construction of a smaller display store at the site rather than a large, full scale building, according to Mayor Mike Seferian, who sits on the Planning Commission. The variances were for C-2 General Commercial zoned property to reduce the required interior parking lot landscaping on the property and to reduce the type and number of required buffer trees and shrubs in the right of way buffer yard on the property. The property, at the northeast corner of Navarre and Wheeling, was previously a gas station that has been torn down. The property has long been considered an eyesore, according to Seferian. Tim Horton’s is east of the site, and Oriental Gardens Chinese Restaurant is to the north. Brian Ellis, the engineer and surveyor of the project, told the Commission that many people have wanted to develop the site, but were unable to put together anything feasible. He said Art Van Furniture Store is reputable, and that the Michigan based retailer had put together a realistic site plan that is suitable to the city’s needs. The Ohio Department of Transportation’s acquisition of some of the rights of way on Wheeling and Navarre has limited the proposed size of the building at the site. The developer wants a 5,000 square foot building, with a potential restaurant at the side, but due to the zoning code requirements, has been unable to make it happen. Ellis said Art Van wants to keep the entrance off Navarre as an “enter only” entrance because the road has a lot of traffic. The company plans to do away with an existing drive to help increase planting in the area and alleviate the reduction in landscaping. Art Van would also have an enter/exit drive off of Wheeling. The Commission agreed to reduce the required interior parking lot landscaping from 570 square feet to 310 square feet, as requested. “They’re still going to come up short in the parking lot by about three spots as required by the size of the building,” Seferian told The Press. “But traditionally, people don’t flock to furniture stores. Most of the time, you see a handful of people in the parking lot.” The parking lot could be expanded when the city buys Oriental Gardens to build a road that will improve safety at the Navarre and Wheeling intersection, he added. “Once we purchase the Oriental Gardens Restaurant, we don’t need all of the property. We just need enough to put the road in. And the remainder, we’ll sell to

Art Van and they’ll have enough additional space. They could actually add onto the building and have enough parking spaces,” he said. The Commission also agreed to overlook the required plantings in the right of way and allow the city’s public service director to approve plantings in the right of way to avoid creating a site distance problem. Seferian said he as in support of the variances. “It will give them more room to put the building up by using that buffer,” said Seferian. “But the more important reason is, in that intersection, the buffer at the front would be a visual problem and safety matter for cars going in there. We would not

want to court a buffer in front of that building and cause a line of site issue.” The city had been looking for years to find a suitable development on the property that would not cause safety hazards due to congested traffic on Navarre and Wheeling, he said. Art Van is considered a “primary destination location,” a safer alternative than a gas station, where people come and go constantly, he added. “Most people looking for a couch or other furniture, they leave home knowing where they are going. They would take the safest route at Wheeling to pull in, versus that turn going east on Navarre and trying to cross those four lanes of traffic trying to get in,” said Seferian.

Attorneys representing a Fremont man indicted for the murder of his estranged wife have filed a motion to dismiss death penalty specifications in the case. The motion, filed in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court on behalf of Randall Ross, cites constitutional and international law violations. Ross, who was indicted in May, faces seven counts, including murder, aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, and kidnapping in the shooting death of his wife, Amy. Firearm specifications were included in the indictment. All of the charges are first degree felonies. The shooting occurred in March at the N. Leutz Road home of Andrea Swope, Amy’s sister, where she had been staying. She was found in an upstairs bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. Swope called the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department shortly before noon to report the shooting and told dispatchers Randall had then shot himself and was still at the residence. Carroll Township Police Chief Jody Hatfield was the first responding officer to arrive at the scene and encountered Ross in the driveway. Ross was treated at the scene for two head wounds by the township fire department before being taken by Life Flight to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. Records in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court indicate she filed a divorce complaint last year, including a motion for a mutual restraining order, but then filed a dismissal notice less than a month later. A final pre-trial hearing is scheduled for July 31 at 10 a.m., according to the court docket.

Lake Township Season worker hired for cemetery By Larry Limpf News Editor After meeting in executive session, the Lake Township trustees Tuesday authorized the township cemetery sexton to hire a seasonal employee. The trustees approved a motion to allow the sexton to hire an employee for $10 an hour and up to 30 hours a week. The employee will be on the township payroll until Oct. 1, said Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board of trustees. She said the seasonal employee will focus on controlling weeds and tall grass around headstones and other structures in the cemetery on Walbridge Road. The condition of the township cemetery, including its finances, came up for discussion last month after a resident told township trustees she saw grass around headstones left un-mowed. The resident said she was dismayed during a recent visit to the cemetery on Walbridge Road to see some headstones obscured from view by tall grass. Others visiting the cemetery on Memorial Day told her they were surprised by its condition, she said. Bowen said the board hadn’t hired seasonal help for the 40-acre cemetery as an austerity measure. Prior to last week’s decision, only the cemetery sexton and a full-time worker handled maintenance responsibilities. In years past the trustees hired as many as five seasonal employees before state revenues to

local governments were cut, Bowen said. The township doesn’t have a property tax levy to generate revenues for cemetery costs – instead relying on grave plot sales and burial fees. The township budgeted $160,000 this year for cemetery costs but as of May 31 there was a balance of about $29,000 in the fund, according to figures compiled by Vicki Schwamberger, township fiscal officer. Bowen said the township has also been buying back about four or five grave plots on average a month as owners move from the township or opt to be cremated or not

By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press Genoa Village Council has set a 10 percent cap this week on pick-up contributions for the police pension plan. Monday’s approval of the cap proposal came days before the rate set by the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund in Columbus is set to jump to 10.75 percent, Fiscal Officer Chuck Brinkman said. The rate hike is one of three expected over the coming years. The rate increases to 11.5 percent in 2014 and then to 12.25 percent in 2015. The cap means the village will only put in contributions up to the 10 percent limit. The employee will be responsible for the remainder.

At the current 10 percent rate, the village contributes roughly $25,000 to $29,000 to the pension fund annually, Brinkman said. The cap falls in line with a 10 percent cap in place for other village employees who are under the Public Employees Retirement System, Village Administrator Kevin Gladden said. The pending increases have been part of the conversation between the Genoa administration and the police department for a number of months, Genoa Police Chief Bob Bratton said. “The police officers understand the situation and agreed we will pay when it goes beyond that 10 percent,” Bratton said. Under contract guidelines, the village

pays the full 10 percent contribution for any employee that has worked there for two years. Part-time officers are not eligible. “Right now I think the only one it affects is the police chief. He is paying the full amount,” Brinkman said. However, Bratton will celebrate his two-year anniversary on the force in September. The Ohio Legislature created the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund in 1967, replacing 454 various police, fire relief and pension funds, according to the pension fund website. Ten percent of plan participants’ earnings are invested. The participants’ employers contribute the appropriate percent of payroll necessary to fund current costs.

Collins Park homeowners stand ground

City contacts 28 homeowners seeking to purchase homes By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer The City of Toledo contacted 28 homeowners to see if they would be willing to sell their property to make room for an expansion of the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood. The city says it is looking for two separate groups of four contingent properties to make room for two new substations and staging areas for construction. Wednesday during a committee of the whole meeting to discuss the proposed property acquisitions, about 20 Birmingham residents were present as Collins Park residents told city council’ members they feared the city will use eminent domain to obtain the properties needed. In addition, some homeowners said they believed the price offered was not fair and others said they had no intention of leaving a neighborhood they lived in their entire lives. The $314 million expansion was mandated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and has to be completed within five years. Dave Welch, director of public utilities, said several homeowners have already agreed to sell, but the city has failed to find a string of four homes to make room for the construction project. Jamie Miller, a realty specialist with the city, said they were close to reaching agreements with other homeowners. City council had authorized $700,000 for the purchase of the homes, but Councilman Shaun Enright, an East Toledo resident, led legislation to rescind the authorization, which was approved by an 8-4 vote. Mayor Mike Bell vetoed Enright’s legislation, but council can still overturn the veto. “Beverly Hills of Birmingham” Although one resident said he was willing to sell, six residents spoke against the taking of homes in one of East Toledo’s more affluent neighborhoods. “Overall, there is a concern that this is

Father Frank Eckart speaks to Toledo city council members on behalf of Collins Park residents sitting behind him. (Press photo by J. Patrick Eaken) one of the nicest parts of the neighborhood — the people there don’t want to move if they don’t have to. This, I think, is a truly strong neighborhood” said Father Frank Eckart of the Birmingham Development Corporation. The homes are next to Collins Park Golf Course and one homeowner originally paid $105,500 for his property, although appraised values have dropped because of a decline in the real estate market. Miller said the city will pay closing and relocation costs, also, so there should be no out of pocket expenses for anyone willing to sell unless they purchase a more expensive home. Some that were thinking about selling said they were looking at homes in places like Oregon and Findlay. One speaker said he was willing to sell and was already working with Miller to reach an agreement, but most wanted to stay.

Steve Nemecek, 724 Collins Park Avenue, said his family has lived at Collins Park since 1922. He called the neighborhood the “Beverly Hills of Birmingham.” “Before the golf course and before the water works, we were there,” Nemecek said. “This street is a vital part of the neighborhood for people to walk. You take all the homes and you destroy this street and you are slowly going to take apart the neighborhood. “All we want to know is, tell us, and let us become involved in this process and not be in the background. If we’re involved in the process, I think you can save the street. This street is vital to the neighborhood.” Joseph Nemecek, also a Collins Park lifetime resident, says the potential sale of homes in his neighborhood is “scaring people.” He adds that even though the market indicates one price, it doesn’t include in-

trinsic value of their homes nor the amount of money they have put in to upgrade their properties. Mary Ann Acevedo said she paid $35,000 to renovate her home and called the area a “beautiful neighborhood.” “I am fighting for my neighbors that have lived there — we look out for each other,” Acevedo said. “There is no crime in the street. If I knew a neighbor that is going on vacation, I’ll mow their lawn — it doesn’t hurt me. We’re proud of our neighborhood, we’re proud of our homes.” Resident Harold Howe said, “I want you to know it’s very depressing — are you taking my house or are you not? It’s a big mind game with us. I’m where I want to be. I’m an east sider — I’m an ‘05er (43605 zip code). Please come up with a different plan. I think you can — I’ll put some faith in you to do that.” Peter Ujvagi, speaking in council chambers as a resident for the first time since serving on council, presented four requests of city council on behalf of the residents — The first request — no demolition of homes on York, Collins Park Drive and Consaul Street until an acceptable plan for the expansion of the water plant has been developed and agreed to. The second request is the establishment of an effective task force. The task force idea was accepted by the city one other time — at a March 25 public meeting, but none has been formed yet. Another public meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. on July 11 at the treatment plant. Thirdly, Ujvagi requested the city take responsibility for the maintenance and upkeep of any homes purchased or work with an appropriate organization to maintain and manage the homes. He suggested having Neighborhood Works manage the homes. Last, he said if the city insists on continuing to purchase homes, a fair price be offered to residents; utilize an “option to buy” as a mechanism to purchase property in the future, if needed; salvage rights not be granted on any homes purchased by the city; and renew a commitment that eminent domain will not be used.

Martin couple distributes crafts coast to coast By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer Crafts artists Thomas and Dawn Van Ness, who recently celebrated 39 years of marriage, are hitting it nationally with their handmade creations — distributing coast to coast. Tom, a 62-year-old Vietnam veteran, and Dawn, 56, grew up in Martin and live there today. Their company, Early Homestead Primitives, distributes a variety of handmade scented candles to about 175 wholesale customers. “We do two craft shows a year in Mansfield — the Simple Goods Show and people from all over the United States come to that,” Dawn said. “I look forward to that. Actually, I have a couple customers from that show in which we sell candles to now. The one lady in Massachusetts, Walker Homestead, we started making candles for her, and then there is a young man who has a shop in Massillon, Ohio, and I started selling him stuff.” Dawn began her side of the couple’s crafts business 27 years ago. This year the couple opened a shop called Simple Gatherings at 18909 West State Route 51 just before you enter Elmore. It is open on Saturdays only, but it is there that locals can now see their entire range of products — all handmade. The Genoa High School graduates began their candle lines five years ago, however, it is just one of many products they offer. Tom was formerly a home builder, and Dawn worked at the Genoa Library, but now they both work full time making, packaging, and distributing crafts. During the week, they are in their Martin studio preparing products to be delivered to retail outlets in Florida, North Carolina, Washington, and other states. Most customers operate seasonal storefronts and do not order regularly, but when inventory demands it. Last week, they were packaging four dozen 14-ounce candle jars for shipment to North Carolina. The candle jars have a vintage-style paper label and a hand-dyed and distressed cloth topper that is sprayed with the candle scent. “The cloth topper is fastened on with distressed twine that also holds a wonderful little grungy wax star that is the same scent as the candle inside. These

It’s like therapy. I can’t enjoy doing anything else. I love it. I love the people. I have the best customers.

Legislators representing Northwest Ohio and the state are asking the Postmaster General to delay plans to consolidate mail processing in the region. In a letter to Patrick Donahue, the legislators push for a delay until the Office of Inspector General has completed an audit of a study that recommended consolidating of the Toledo processing and distribution center. About 400 jobs would be affected by a consolidation. Senators Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, and Republican Rob Portman, Representatives Marcy Kaptur (D-9th District) and Bob Latta (R-5th District) are asking for the delay. “We remain concerned that consolidating the Toledo (center) could cause delays in mail delivery and not produce the proposed savings,” the letter says, citing an Inspector General audit that found delays in mail delivery and missed performance benchmarks after a previous consolidation plan resulted in closing the Lima processing facility.

candles are of my own design with some of the scents being my own custom blends and there are no candles on the market anywhere like them. They are made of a paraffin blend wax, burn very well, and are smokeless,” Dawn said. “I blend the oils and everything. We make special ones. There is a primitive magazine called Primitive Magazine, which is all over the United States, and we make their candles, sprays, and tarts and all that kind of stuff.” There are also three-inch scented tarts which come in a variety of aromas, The Van Nesses just expanded their candle operation, now providing their own original and unique new line of jar candles in little feed sacks, called, appropriately, Feed Sack Candles. “Each candle is hand poured in a 16ounce jar and is encased in a vintage-style little hand sewn feed sack. These candles are Early Homestead Primitives originals and there are none like them anywhere. They are made of paraffin wax, burn very well, and are smokeless,” Dawn said. Dawn still makes the candles in an old milk house her father and husband renovated for her years ago. “I really enjoy doing it. It’s like therapy. I can’t enjoy doing anything else. I love it. I love the people. I have the best customers anywhere — I really, really do,” Dawn said. “It’s funny because we had the shop in Williston for all those years and I had a good clientele, and then I didn’t have a shop for eight years and I missed everybody. So, a lot of people were happy when we decided to open another shop.”

Folk art, woodcrafts, primitives... In their Elmore store, besides candles, there are folk art dolls, woodcrafts, primitives, and furniture — all either real antiques or made to look old with Tom and Dawn’s special touch. “Most of the stuff is either old, antique, I made it, or he made it. He makes the clocks, lamps, and all that kind of stuff and makes them look old,” Dawn said. The folk art dolls are also Dawn’s creation. Tom, who attended Columbus College of Art and Design, still operates Sonrise Construction and Home Improvement. He operates his craft business, The Woodworks, out of a small shop in back of the store. Tom’s “American handcrafted” primitive woodcrafts include lamps, clocks, folk art, and “country decorating accessories to add charm to any home,” it states on his business card. “I spray paint most of the stuff with basically cheap latex paint and it’s just a process of sanding, scraping, and staining,” Tom said, ”and figure out where it would normally be if it was old.” The Van Nesses’ business started small, when they were a young married couple living away from their hometown. “When we lived in Rossford and my son was a 3-year-old baby (he is now 30years-old), there was a little shop on River Road and she would take consignment things,” Dawn said. “So I wasn’t working at the time, so I thought, ‘Well, you know, I’ll get a couple patterns, I’ll try and make some stuff and see if she likes it, because I liked shopping there. “It was like, ‘Well, I can do this,’ and we used to go to craft shows and it was exciting. So, when we moved back to Martin, we had outside our doors a little woodshed and milk house. Tom and his dad redid it for me and it was a little shop I had there for a while. “Then, when he opened a shop (in the original Dunn Chevy-Olds building) in Williston for his woodworking, he didn’t need the front, so he said, ‘You might as well take it. There is more traffic there than there is in Martin and way more space’ and we were there for 20 years.” Product lines can be viewed at www. and www.

A brighter day To the editor: The City of Northwood has left a bitter taste in the mouth of residents in surrounding communities for quite some time. Furthermore, the manner in which the city collected thousands of dollars from both locals and outsiders under the pretense that it was about “safety” screamed, “have you no shame?” From the speed trap by I-280, the mobile van that was parked in ever-so-convenient spots (most of which took advantage of already struggling college students), to the red light and speed cameras placed at intersections. Consequently, even mentioning the city of Northwood, in most respects, drew the response, “avoid it like the plague.” Personally, I have taken pride in doing everything in my power to “hate” on the city of Northwood. During this period of “making the streets of Northwood safer” (aka lightweight robbery) I can honestly say, I would drive 30 minutes across town to visit the same business that was 10 minutes away in Northwood. This decision was out of sheer principle. Clearly, I was spending more time, gas, and money to go across town. Even the thought of going through Northwood became non-existent the moment the city decided to use its streets as a

method to create revenue. Enough with the negative, though. I am very happy and excited to see that the city made the right decision. The people have spoken over the past few years and it seems as if one by one, these money-making disgraces to the city have fallen. As it pertains to safety, it would be foolish to claim that the implementation of these devices would not be of any help at all, however, is the juice worth the squeeze? The city of Northwood could have the safest streets in America, but at what cost? Moreover, if the city wants to continue practices that “maintain road safety,” then do so in a manner that is not deceptive and sneaky. The reputation of the city and businesses have suffered long enough. Brandon Barber Oregon

More lies

To the editor; In the June 17 issue of The Press, an article by Cynthia L. Jacoby entitled, “Sales tax becoming touchy issue in Ottawa County,” there was a serious distortion of facts.

The writer had extensively interviewed and quoted Ohio Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern. Redfern, for an article that was supposed to be about taxation and took advantage of the opportunity to again falsely accuse former County Commissioner Mark Stahl of wrongdoing. He repeated untruths that Stahl had used Ottawa County resources in his personal business. Mark Stahl filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission (OEC) against the Ohio Democratic Party, headed by Chris Redfern, for campaign literature the party mailed during the November 2012 election that falsely maligned him. The OEC found probable cause of a violation of state election laws (against the Ohio Democratic Party). Jacoby did not include that fact in her article. Had she interviewed others, such as an OEC representative, she could have written a more fair and balanced report and not just filed another blatantly false and malicious accusation by Chris Redfern. The last statement in the article was, “Redfern said, “He (referring to Mark Stahl) knows he’s guilty.” Presumably, Redfern thinks he can make this statement because

Stahl chose not to go forward with the hearing since that would have been at his personal expense, while Redfern would have been using Democratic Party funds. Not only is Redfern’s statement not true, but as the last statement in the article, it leaves the reader with the impression that Mark Stahl has done something wrong. Although we have come to expect these tactics from the chairman of the Democratic Party, the article is not responsible journalism. Dave Amerine Ottawa County Conservatives Club Editor’s note. Mr. Stahl could not be reached for comment for the article referred to in the letter.

Correction An article about the history of the Village of Walbridge in the June 30 issue of The Press included incorrect information about a municipal garbage collection contract. Then councilmember Joann Schiavone headed negotiations for the village with Waste Management, Inc. for the contract, which was for 20 years, not 10. Based on an estimated savings of about $50,000 annually, the contract saved the village about $1 million.

For your own good, flaws need to be kept in perspective Everyone has an aversion to flaws. No one wants to buy a product with flaws. Who wants to drive a flawed car? Flaws in another person can be annoying. However, flaws are a part of life. Rather than being irritated by flaws, you can use them for personal growth. Life is not perfect. If it was, the boredom level would be very high. The secret to coping is keeping flaws in perspective. Ironically we tend to do just the opposite. We will overlook much of the good stuff in order to fixate on any flaws. This process becomes so habituated that many people aren’t aware they are doing it. For example, out of 10 issues, one is not ideal. Yet, it’s the flawed one that consumes your attention. You thus ignore the 90 percent of the good stuff. When fixated on flaws, not only do you overlook things you should be appreciating, you also experience more stress and anxiety. This strained emotional state further magnifies flaws out of proportion and inhibits your problem solving abilities. As you become mired in flaws, you stop noticing most, if not all of the good stuff. You no longer stop to smell the flowers because you don’t even see the flowers. Left unchecked, this syndrome dominates your outlook. When the only things you see in life are flaws, your attitude becomes one of problems and struggle instead of solutions and joy. Not only do you invariably find or create problems, you also attract them. In addition to external flaws, there are the flaws you see within yourself. Although these flaws may or may not exist, your perception is your reality. It’s not uncommon for someone to find an internal flaw where others see strengths. For example, there have been many stunningly attractive actresses who see physical flaws that no one else can find. Someone who is thin and in great shape will think they are overweight. Someone who has a beautiful face will think their nose is too big. Being hyper critical of yourself doesn’t

Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden help you. You are unique. There’s no point to comparing yourself to others. There are aspects you can change and others you can’t. Physical attributes are just one area where many find flaws in themselves. You are born with a certain face, body type, and height. Obsessing over these aspects just causes stress. One critical factor that impacts the way you look is your attitude. Regardless of their physical charac-


teristics, positive, upbeat, and happy people are more attractive than their negative, sour, and unhappy counterparts. Character flaws can be corrected. It doesn’t matter how long they’ve existed. To fix a character flaw, you have to recognize, acknowledge, take responsibility for it, and then be willing to change it. If you deny it or make excuses, you won’t make any changes. This is one type of flaw you don’t have to live with. Invariably, you will notice flaws in others. You can change yourself but you cannot change someone else. Other people are who they are. If any changes are to be made, they have to be willing to make them. So you have to recognize and accept people for who they are. If you can’t

overlook their flaws, the only option is to eliminate or minimize your contact with them. Any attempt to force someone else to change, leads to friction. Concentrate on the many wonderful aspects of life. Don’t get hung up on flaws. Seek out solutions rather than searching for problems. Maintain an attitude of gratitude. Even an empty glass is a useful because with it you can get a drink. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book. Visit or your bookstore.

BAC could go from .08 to .05

Recommendation for change in DUI law goes too far Page Two

Alcohol Related Deaths in the U.S.

by John Szozda

The .05 limit puts us one step closer to prohibition while gaining little in the way of safety.

The State of Ohio toughened its drunkdriving laws 30 years ago this spring resulting in a steady decline of alcohol-related fatalities from 966 in 1982 to 358 in 2011, according to statistics from the United States Department of Transportation. The biggest decrease occurred during the first 10 years. The decline has leveled off since then as it has in other states. That has prompted the National Traffic Safety Transportation Board to issue a report calling for tougher measures including the controversial reduction of the threshold blood alcohol content from .08 to .05 percent. The report also calls for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to: • Continue high visibility sobriety checkpoints and media campaigns; • Expand use of ignition interlock systems; • Use DUI courts and other measures to reduce recidivism. The goal is zero alcohol-related crashes, injuries and fatalities which is what you’d expect coming from the transportation safety board. However, the recommendations go a step too far. The lowering of the BAC is a money grab for some to profit off social drinkers. It will brand more young people as criminals restricting their opportunities for certain jobs and saddling them with stiff fines and higher insurance rates while doing little to address the real problem—the drunk. Consider that statistics from the Ohio Department of Public Safety show that in 2011 of 192 alcohol-related fatalities in which a BAC was taken, 183 were caused by drivers with a BAC of .10 and above. Further, 106 of these drivers registered a BAC of .20 and above. Only nine deaths were caused by drivers with a BAC of .09 and below. Ohio obviously has a bigger problem with the problem drinker, not the social drinker. A woman who weighs 120 pounds, or a man who weighs 160 pounds, can exceed the .05 BAC limit with two drinks in an hour. Just having a drink or two with dinner can put you at risk for a DUI under the lower limit. The restaurant and bar industry would be harmed while the insurance industry and government would benefit and there would be a negligible impact on public safety. Area billboards show a young man taking a breathalyzer test with the caption, “You just blew $10,000.” Last month, I interviewed a local insurance agent and an attorney who has spent 23 years defending drivers charged with DUI to determine if the claim was true. I found the cost of a DUI can range from a low of $2,800 to a possible $14,750. The question becomes, should someone who is a minimal risk to the public for having a couple of drinks bear this cost as well as the burden that can accompany a DUI conviction in terms of limited job opportunities? The .05 limit puts us one step closer to

prohibition while gaining little in the way of safety. The other recommendations, however,

have merit. The Center for Disease Control concludes sobriety checkpoints and subsequent media coverage reduce alcohol-relat-

ed crashes 20 percent. The CDC also states ignition interlock systems have proven effective and their use has more than doubled nationwide from 100,000 units in 2006 to more than 200,000 in 2010. Increasing the use of these two deterrents, especially the ignition interlock system for multiple offenders and those who blow higher than .10, would be more reasonable. The interlock system prevents a driver from starting a car if the BAC is above a specified level. Statistics show most fatal crashes occur at night and on the weekend. Sobriety checkpoints during these times, while an inconvenience, are a visible deterrent. Thirty-one percent of fatal crashes on the weekend during 2011 were alcohol-related versus 15 percent during the week. These new recommendations, if acted upon, will continue to stem the carnage drunk drivers inflict. In 1983, Ohio toughened its law by implementing the .10 BAC limit, requiring a minimum 72-hour jail sentence for first time offenders, license suspension of 60 days to three years and a fine of $150 to $1,000. Repeat offenders faced more severe penalties including jail sentences of up to one year and license suspension of up to 10 years. Since then, threatened by loss of federal highway funds, the state has lowered that limit to .08 and implemented a zero tolerance stance for drivers under 21 and tougher sanctions against drivers who test above .17. Any traffic-related death is tragic. Most of the recommendations by the National Traffic Safety Transportation Board address the problem drinkers—the multiple offenders and those who can’t stop after two drinks. Implement these, but don’t punish the responsible social drinker. Comment at zoz@presspublications. com

Therapy riding opens doors for fair participant

Rally for the Cure

Chad Karnes began his journey of riding horses when he was just 7 years old. Carolyn Karnes, Chadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, shared that he began riding at Vail Meadows Equestrian Center as therapy for Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Syndrome and was a natural from the start. Chad had no tension when he rode and described it like sitting in a rocking chair. Since then, the family has moved to Ottawa County and Chad now works with Suzanne Miller, trainer at Lemon Tree Stables in Oak Harbor. Chad, now a teen, often rides his bike down to the stables to train with his horse, Dixie, who is leased from the Heiks family. Besides riding, Chad maintains his horse, which includes safety precautions, personal care, doing chiropractic stretches to Dixieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck and upkeep of the stall. Chad is at his happiest when he is at the stables, his mom says. Part of that happiness comes from his relationship with his horse, as well as the other horses at the stables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is able to observe many of the horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; habits and behaviors, such as knowing if they are having a bad day, a stomach ache or the fact that they prefer to not be alone in the pasture,â&#x20AC;? she said. Dixie, who is 12-years-old, is the largest horse at the stable. Trainer Suzanne Miller adds that Dixie is a gentle horse with a smooth ride and beautiful markings that make her quite the â&#x20AC;&#x153;supermodel of horses.â&#x20AC;? Lemon Tree Stables offers Chad yearround training as they have an inside riding arena. Chad has learned such skills as riding without a saddle to increase his balance, dropping sticks into a bucket, and maneuverability. His expertise has allowed him to ride Dixie both inside and outside the fenced-in area. After almost a year with Dixie, Chad, who is a member of the Making Strides 4-H Club, has decided to take her to the upcom-

Mathews Ford Oregon will host a Rally for the Cure Car Show Sunday, July 21. Rally for the Cure is a grassroots effort that was created to raise awareness and help empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and the importance of annual breast cancer screenings. More than 2 million people have participated in Rally events across the nation since its start in 1996. This year marks the second year Mathews Ford Oregon has participated in the Rally effort. In addition to mobilizing people behind the promise to end breast cancer, Rally events have generated over $70 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to prize and 50/50 raffles, there will be childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, food and beverages available for purchase and each participant will receive a goody bag â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are proud to open our facility and host a Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while supporting an event we are passionate about,â&#x20AC;? said John Becerra, sales manager. â&#x20AC;?The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like Tim Mathews who have said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes we can have a Rally.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It is their enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get burned this summer: sunburn remedies Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cure for sunburn, but there are ways to minimize the misery. The July issue of ShopSmart magazine, from Consumer Reports, highlights effective treatments that can help heal after a sunburn and identifies products to avoid when scorched by the sun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get burned twice,â&#x20AC;? said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor in chief of ShopSmart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some sunburn products may do more harm than good.â&#x20AC;? To help prevent sunburns, which can lead to skin damage, premature aging and skin cancers, ShopSmart recommends applying sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before heading outside and reapplying it at least every two hours while outdoors. Because using sunscreen isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, wear protective clothing, sunglasses and a widebrimmed, tightly-woven hat if possible. For those who find themselves suffering from a sunburn despite best efforts, the secret to relief is to treat it quickly from the inside and the outside. ShopSmart has

identified remedies that can provide comfort from a sunburn and those that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth trying: What to try Food and water. Drink extra water, especially when in the sun. Bodies work hard to cool skin, so staying hydrated can help. And eating fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants may help prevent cell damage caused by the sun. Painkillers. Anti-inflammatory pain medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin can help ease the pain and discomfort that can be caused by a sunburn. Hydrocortisone cream. If a sunburn is causing itchiness, an over-the counter cream can help. Lotion. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste money on a special after-sun lotion. A light moisturizer or aloe vera can minimize peeling and flaking. What to Skip After-sun sprays. Pain-relief sprays of-

fer instant relief, but most contain benzocaine or another anesthetic that can make things worse for those who are allergic. Vaseline. Applying Vaseline or other petroleum jelly products right after getting too much sun wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help in cooling down. Noxzema. Applying more than a thin layer of Noxzema to soothe a sunburn probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. Even the manufacturer does not recommend the use of its products for sunburn relief because they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been tested for that purpose. Vitamin creams and oils. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste money on pricey lotions and potions that contain antioxidants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; incorporate them into a diet instead. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t puncture vitamin E capsules to spread the oil on a sunburn, since it can inflame sore skin on those who are allergic and may not help anyway.

Joint replacement – where we are and where we’re headed As with many other aspects of medicine and healthcare, advances and changes in technology, technique and yes, even reimbursement from insurance companies, have been instrumental in the evolution of what we now see and experience. Hysterectomies done as outpatients, cardiac bypass patients going home in a fraction of the time compared to 30 years ago – things that were considered impossible, or at least unlikely, are now becoming more and more commonplace. Such is the case for orthopedic procedures, particularly knee and hip replacement procedures. I can remember “back in the day” when a knee or hip replacement was considered a monumental experience (believe me, it still is). Patients would be admitted to the hospital at the very least, the day before surgery and remain in the hospital for several days afterwards. Weeks and weeks of therapy; nonweight bearing for weeks, on a walker for what seemed an eternity and the interesting thing was – our motion expectation was to work hard to obtain 90-degrees of flexion (bend) to be able to sit in a chair and on the commode. Really, that’s all? Ninety degrees? Hey, you have to be able to sit on the “throne,” right? My, how times have changed. Technology has advanced beyond our expectations-implants touted to last 20 – even 30 years. They’ve even become a bit

No Bones About It.

more “gender specific” with implants on the market geared more toward the women. While it’s been around for many years, one of the most interesting developments, and one that is getting more attention as of late, is the “partial knee replacement.” Partial knee replacement, also known technically as a “uni-condylar knee replacement (let’s stick with “partial knee replacement”, it’s easier) is a procedure where only one side of the knee joint is resurfaced instead of the entire joint. Used to treat specific, localized arthritis, the procedure is not new, but technology has changed over the years; better parts, longer-lasting, and each brand has something unique about it. Performed largely in the under-65 age group, this procedure is, quite literally, “half” of what is done in a conventional knee replacement procedure. Only one “knuckle” of the thigh bone is re-surfaced and the tibial (shin bone) surface on the same side is also re-surfaced. Surgery time is typically shorter, as is the recovery. Many people have this procedure performed and are walking around within a couple hours

Been Looking For A Real Hair Cut From A Real Barber?

Remember, we never dreamed heart bypass surgery patients would go home in just a few days....... of the surgery. That said, one of the most interesting aspects of partial knee replacements is that they, too, are now being done as outpatient procedure. For example, let’s say you have your outpatient partial knee replacement done at 7 am. Odds are you’ll be home by noon or 1 pm. As with any surgical procedure of this nature, some patients may not qualify for the procedure, let alone being done as an outpatient, because of medical history, age, type and severity of the arthritis. Several things have contributed to the development of “outpatient joint replacement,” some of which are technical, financial, marketing, more efficient use of time and resources in an outpatient surgery center, and public awareness/demand. Additionally, anesthesia delivery and post-operative pain control have become so tailormade for these procedures that it is much easier and more comfortable than ever before to have this procedure done, even as an outpatient.

At this point in time, there are as many opponents to this new style of surgery as there are proponents – each with their own valid rationale. Suffice it to say that, for now, it seems to be the future of many knee joint replacements. Remember, we never dreamed heart bypass surgery patients would go home in just a few days, or that many of those procedures are now performed with the “minimally invasive” approach. So, is hospitalization for joint replacements over-kill? Is it really safer, easier and better as an outpatient? Just remember, the same questions were once asked about hysterectomies, major ligament reconstruction procedures in the knee, cataract surgery as well as many others. Personally, I believe that these recent changes in how surgery is performed – outpatient, micro-surgery, minimally-invasive techniques, better, longer-lasting parts are all elements which will continue to add up to better, easier, safer surgical procedures for us as patients moving forward into the future, and that, my friends, I am completely in favor of.

Patrick Johnson uses bow to capture record carp By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor A new Ohio record carp taken by bow fishing has been certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee. The new state record carp, weighing 53.65 pounds, was caught by Patrick Johnson of Toledo in the Sandusky County portion of Lake Erie’s waters. Johnson arrowed the carp June 9 using a fish point tethered with 200 pound test Fast Flight line. Johnson’s record carp is 45 inches long and 32¼ inches in girth. His catch replaces the previous state bow fishing record carp that was arrowed in Sandusky Bay by Rich Cady on May 28, 2008, weighing 47.65 pounds and measuring 38 inches long. Ohio’s record fish are determined on the basis of weight only. Ohio’s state record fish are certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee with assistance from fisheries biologists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Biologists from the Ohio Division of Wildlife District 2 office in Findlay confirmed the identification of Johnson’s catch.

Falcons moving Clay Rolf from tight end to tackle By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer It wasn’t like getting called to the principal’s office when you were in sixth grade, but Clay Rolf knew something was up. As far as he was concerned, walking into a personal meeting with Bowling Green State University head football coach Dave Clawson, offensive line coach Bill Durkin, tight ends coach Adam Scheier and offensive coordinator Warren Roggiero was a good thing. “Periodically we go in just to talk to make sure everything is going good, like summer classes and to make sure life is good,” said Rolf, an Eastwood graduate. “When I saw coach Durkin come in the room, I knew what was going on. I had a little smile on my face.” Rolf, a redshirt junior who has played tight end for the Falcons the past two seasons, knew he was about to be asked to make a position change on BGSU’s offensive line. “The coaches called me into their of-

fice in early June and explained that they would like me to play tackle,” Rolf said. “I figured it would be coming one of these days. I was one of our bigger tight ends. Our tight ends are awesome, a great group, and I wanted to help the team out in any way possible. They thought moving me to tackle would Clay Rolf make a great fit, and I agree with them. I just want to work hard and win. Whatever they want me to do to get us to win, I’m willing.” The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Rolf – he weighed about 240 in high school – said he loved playing tight end. At the same time, the Falcons were using him as mostly a blocker anyway, so the move to tackle is no big deal. He hasn’t played the position since his junior year at Eastwood for coach

Jerry Rutherford. Rolf played in eight games for the Falcons at tight end and caught one pass, a 23yarder two years ago against Morgan State. “I knew my role,” Rolf said. “I was one of the bigger tight ends and I was in there to block. Maybe you go out on a (pass) route a few times, but my role was to block.” BG returns third-team All-Mid-American Conference tight end Alex Bayer this season. Bayer, a redshirt senior, has 78 career catches, more than any other Falcons receiver. “Tight end is the same as playing tackle,” Rolf said, “but you get to catch the ball once in a while. I love playing tight end and I liked playing for coach Scheier, but I like this move and I’m just going to keep working my butt off. The biggest (adjustment) for me will be pass protection, but the similarities between tight end and tackle are very similar.” Rolf was listed at 278 pounds last season, but he’s still gaining muscle mass with a steady diet of weight lifting, protein shakes, hamburgers and steak and potatoes.

“I do enjoy a good salad,” he said, adding that he’s being asked to continue to work on his footwork and foot speed. “I’m trying to be agile,” Rolf said. “The coaches didn’t say I had to put on too much weight. I just have to keep working and keep my feet getting faster and keep getting stronger.” Rolf is keeping busy this summer. In addition to lifting with the team every morning, he took a summer class and he helps out at his grandfather’s plumbing business 3-5 days a week. “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Rolf said. “I don’t mind working.” He added that the Falcons, who graduated two starting offensive linemen and a few defensive starters, “should be good” this season. BG finished 8-5 last year, with losses at heavyweights Florida and Virginia Tech, and ended the season with a loss to San Jose State in the Military Bowl in Washington, D.C. “We have a lot of guys coming back,” said Rolf, who is majoring in middle childhood education. “We’ve been working really hard this summer. We’re ready to go.”

JULY 8, 2013

Senior trio leaves Oak Harbor with great memories By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer In their four years at Oak Harbor High School, Mark Konieczny, A.J. Cecil and Austin Wiegand certainly left an imprint within the athletic department. From 2009-13, the senior trio helped to rebuild the basketball program, return the football team to prominence and lead the baseball team to its first league title in 20 years while getting to within one game of the state tournament. Konieczny, who will be attending Ohio State University in the fall, was the star running back on the football team for two seasons and lettered four times as a baseball player, leaving as one of the best players in the program’s history. The starting running back for two seasons, Konieczny holds five school records, including rushing yards in a career (3,405), single-season rushing yards (1,881), single-game rushing yards (307), single-game touchdowns (5) and yards-per-carry average for a season (7.3). During his three years on the varsity football squad, the Rockets went 20-10 and finished second in the Sandusky Bay Conference twice after going 6-14 in the two years prior. For his efforts, Konieczny was a unanimous All-SBC selection during his junior and senior seasons. Despite being a successful prep gridiron player, Konieczny initially didn’t have much interest in the sport at a younger age. “My dad always told me that football was fun and I was always on the edge of playing. I finally went out for the team in seventh grade. I didn’t want to go but Dad encouraged me to go to practice and I scored two touchdowns so I started to like it. And then I convinced A.J. to come out for conditioning in eighth grade,” Konieczny said. Konieczny was just as good, if not better, at baseball. He was a first-team All-SBC selection twice and hit .437 with a .562 on-base percentage this season, following an even more impressive season last year (.489 BA, .718 OBP). His first season came as a freshman when he hit .293 and from there on he never had a season with an onbase percentage less than .487. Konieczny says his sister Julia, a standout in softball and tennis, had a great deal of influence on Mark. Julia’s success in athletics, specifically softball, served as a motivating force. “I think (playing sports in the backyard) was probably a majority of the reason I got into (sports),” Konieczny said. “Dad would take (Julia and I) out in the backyard every night — we were always very active playing baseball. I don’t think he played baseball, but he would read books and learn techniques and skills needed to be taught and then he would teach them to us. He had drills and all kinds of crap we had to do. Having Julia around was important because we would always manage to somehow play one-on-one baseball games.” Probably his best accomplishment came with the baseball team came in 2011 when the “Cardiac” Rockets, after struggling to a 9-8 record in the regular season, won five straight games in the Division II tournament, the last four of which came in their final at bat. The group, which consisted of star players like Joey and Brian Mallernee, Phil Bryant and Cecil, went on

Oak Harbor senior running back Mark Konieczny (22) heads downfield with offensive lineman and classmate Nate Segaard (70) blocking in the Rocket's game last year against Genoa. (Press file photo by Harold Hamilton/ an incredible run that saw them fall in the regional final to Parma Heights Holy Name, 9-4. Konieczny served as the leadoff hitter on the team, played shortstop and pitched very well out of the bullpen during the postseason run. “There were a lot of guys that helped the team and did the same stuff I did,” Konieczny said modestly. “I think a lot of it was us coming together as a team during the regional run. With the league title, we started off playing together as a team in the beginning. (The guys) worked hard for four years and it all paid off.” Cecil heading to John Carroll Cecil, who will be playing baseball at John Carroll Univeresity next year, was a standout in football, basketball and baseball. In football, he was a second-team selection as both a wide receiver and a defensive back this season, as well as being a second-team pick in basketball. This season, he caught 31 passes for 634 yards (20.5 per-catch), setting the school record for receiving yards in a season. A two-year starter at wide receiver and cornerback, Cecil earned three letters and was one of the best receivers in the program’s history. A three-year letter winner in basketball, Cecil started for two years as a shooting guard and averaged 12.8 points this year, second on the team to Greg Haar. He helped the Rockets improve from a 3-18 mark the previous year to 11-12 this season before they lost in heartbreaking fashion, 50-47, to Clyde in the sectional tournament. The Rockets went 7-7 in the SBC, good enough to finish fourth in the league. In fact, it was the first time in seven years that the team hadn’t finished last or second-to-last in the league. But it’s baseball where he was most effective, also, earning first-team All-SBC honors in all four years, a feat few accomplish. He never hit worse than .355 and was over the .400 mark the last three years (.400, .435, .414) while maintaining an onbase percentage of at least .520 in the last three seasons.

Wiegand — unsung hero As for Wiegand, he was the unsung hero of the group, rarely receiving any of the accolades while still serving as an important member of the football and basketball squads. Football is where he stood out, earning three varsity letters as a wide receiver and quarterback. During his junior year, he set the school’s single-season record for receptions with 34 while helping Oak Harbor to a 6-4 record. But it was his senior year at quarterback where he was most effective, completing 50-of-86 passes for 866 yards with 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions. A dual threat because of his athleticism, Wiegand was also a good runner, rushing for 362 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately, his talents were never fully utilized as a receiver or quarterback because the Rockets employed an offense that was so focused on running the ball. In basketball, Wiegand started for two

years at forward, lettered three times and was instrumental in helping to turn the program around under head coach Eric Sweet. This season, he sacrificed for the good of the team by moving from small forward to power forward to help make up for the absence of some key players. The move caused Wiegand, normally a wing, to play against some of the taller post players in the league, but he managed to hold his own as Oak Harbor’s defense became a force to be reckoned with. Wiegand, who graduated as the class salutatorian and will be attending Miami University in Oxford, Ohio this fall, spoke about the camaraderie of his teammates and how that helped them to work so well together. “It was great to play with all of those guys,” Wiegand said. “We all got along so well and were great friends. All of us worked together to try and do some great things and I’m proud of what we accomplished.”

Minturn-Mack returns to home track Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Dawn Minturn-Mack made her 2013 debut aboard a powerful Matt Smith Racing Buell last weekend at the seventh annual Summit Racing Equipment Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park. A native of Columbus, MinturnMack had last raced under NHRA sanction in early September at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, where she successfully qualified one of Smith’s Buells for the sport’s longest-running and most prestigious event. “We hope to pick up right where we left off,” Minturn-Mack said. “Matt has very competitive bikes and even though I’m only able to race part-time until we secure full-time funding, the fact we were able to jump on one of his Buells and make the field at Indy

says a lot. “I’m really excited to be racing again, especially in my home state of Ohio. I know the fan support will be tremendous. It should be a great Fourth of July weekend.” Schiets Motorsports of Fremont and are on board as sponsors. “There is nothing more exciting than competing at your home track,” MinturnMack said. “I know that track like the back of my hand, so I always feel more comfortable there. Plus, the Bader Family always puts on a great show for the fans so the atmosphere will be upbeat. Throughout the weekend, MinturnMack and her Red Dawn Racing teammates wore purple ribbons in support of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness.

Barbara Kitz, creator of Hoopie Sauce. (Press photo by Ken Grosjean)

Family’s sauce to hit shelves soon By Melissa Burden Press Contributing Writer Barbara Szabo Kitz, of Oregon, has been making her grandmother’s special chili sauce for years. Now, after friends and family begged her to sell her sauce, Kitz will soon launch her Hoopie Sauce in local markets this summer. Named after her grandmother Marguerite Huepenbecker, who taught her how to make the sauce and was affectionately known as Grandma Hoopie, the sauce remains true to its 100-year-old tradition. “The sauce is sweet and savory, with lots of tomatoes,” Kitz said. “We put it on brats, burgers and other cookout foods, but we also love it on scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, and Lake Erie Perch sandwiches.” Kitz said she was also looking for more ways to raise money for the Thomas D. Kitz Foundation, named after her late husband Tom, who passed away in 2009. The foundation raises awareness and helps support Pancreatic Cancer oncology efforts. “It was 13 months to the day from diagnosis to the day he died,” Kitz said. “It was a horrible road. Tom asked us, the family, to do something to help give other people a fighting chance. A portion of the proceeds from the sauce will be used to help fund research on pancreatic cancer.” Kitz used Kickstarter, an Internet funding site, in April, to raise funds for marketing and to build a larger fan base for the

sauce. Her campaign raised just over $6,000 which will be used to produce the first mega batch of sauce at the Northwest Ohio Cooperative Kitchen in Bowling Green. “The NOCK is an incubator for food products and small businesses,” Kitz said. “They helped get Garlic Expressions started, as well as the Stadium Salsa, which is sold at the Mud Hen’s games.” Kitz said her first commercial batch of Hoopie Sauce should be available for sale in July. “The sauce is close to production,” she said. “The initial run will be a 25 gallon batch to make sure everything is working like we want it to. After that, we will make 55 gallon batches.” The sauce has already made fans across the country. Hoopie Sauce will be served and sold at Earl’s Gourmet Grub, in Los Angeles, CA, Kitz said. Hoopie Sauce will also be sold locally at Takacs Grocery and Meats, located at 1956 Genesee, in East Toledo. Lou Takacs, owner, said Kitz dropped off a few samples of her product at the store. Takacs said he knew he had to carry it. “The sauce is different, unique and out of the ordinary,” Takacs said. “I can’t describe the flavor, but it will be very good on sausages and hamburgers. The product stands for itself. As soon as she gets it done, we will carry it.” For more information on Hoopie Sauce, visit

essage of the

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


eek: Accepting Your Life always challenging and make the best of what we have. Dealing with the concerns of daily life helps us to develop a trust in our Heavenly Father, and knowing that He loves us should be comforting in times of stress. Everyone has concerns in this world, but being truly satisfied with our lives and accepting that we are exactly where God wants us, is a reflection of the healthy contented attitude of a well-adjusted person. Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. R.S.V. Romans 14:19

A Message from Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Longest Running Family-Owned Car Dealer. Since autos were invented, America has built more cars than the rest of the world combined. We put the first man on the moon, and won the biggest war. From the light bulb to the internet, we have dominated. The innovations weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created have changed the world and made it a better place. We are the biggest and most advanced industrial power ever. We take a back seat to no one. In 2013, JD Powers put more General Motors cars at the top of their list for quality and innovation than Honda, Toyota, and Mercedes. For that matter, more than any other auto manufacturer. Here at Dunn-Chevy-Buick, we are the oldest, the most experienced, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of it. We celebrate 104 years of American Loyalty-American Quality. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy a Chevy or Buick from us, buy a Ford or a Chrysler. But please, buy from an American company; for yourself, for your kids, your grandkids, and for the greatest country on earth! See us at 300 Used - 400 New
