Lake restoration plan on the table The Ohio Lake Erie Commission has scheduled two public meetings to seek comments on the latest version of its plan to address pollution and related problems in the lake. A draft of the Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan 2013 has been completed, including proposals the commission and its member agencies plan to adopt over the next several years to improve conditions in the lake and its basin. Meetings will be held Aug. 6 at the Maumee Public Library and Aug. 8 at the Bay Village Public Library. Both meetings will be from 6:30-8 p.m. The commission will also hold a webinar on Aug. 7 from 2-3:30 p.m. The plan is organized into 12 priority areas, including 10 from the plan prepared in 2008 and two additional areas: jobs and the economy and the management of dredged sentiment. Others are non-point source pollution, invasive species, water withdrawals, toxic pollutants, habitat and species, coastal health, and areas of concern. Agencies applying for grants are ex-

pected to indicate which objective in the plan their work will address. In 1987, the United States and Canada committed to restoring the most degraded portions of the Great Lakes basin. Working through the International Joint Commission, the Great Lakes states and provinces designated 43 areas of concern, including 26 in United States waters and five in binational waterways. AOCs were identified based on 14 types of impairment, reflecting human uses - such as eating fish, drinking water and swimming - and ecological impacts, such as loss of diversity in aquatic life and destruction of fish and wildlife habitat. The most common sources of impairment are contaminated sediments, sewage

treatment plant discharges and combined sewer overflows, nonpoint source runoff, runoff from hazardous waste sites and habitat degradation In Ohio, all or portions of the Maumee, Black, Cuyahoga, and Ashtabula rivers are areas of concern cited in the report. Those major tributaries to Lake Erie suffer from various impairments as a result of past industrial use along their banks and other human activities. Locally-based committees have worked with the Ohio EPA to develop Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) that define the sources and causes of impairment. Since the 1990’s, dissolved reactive phosphorus entering the lake from the Maumee and Sandusky Rivers has increased dramatically and is now higher than any other time during a 35-year monitoring period, according to the plan, and those runoff issues have sped up the implementation of management practices and research. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is also revising the draft Nutrient Reduction Strategy Framework for Ohio Waters for submittal to the U.S. EPA. The plan also sees potential in the use of material dredged from harbors.


The Northwood school board is looking at three possible sites to construct a new elementary, middle, and high school combination facility for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students. The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) approved over $11.5 million in state funding earlier this month to construct the building. The OSFC, which oversees the state’s school facility renovation and construction program, also approved three possible locations where the school will be built: The former Lark Elementary School on Andrus Road on the west side, 20 acres of school owned property on Bradner Road on the east side, and on property where the schools are currently located at Woodville and Lemoyne roads, according to Superintendent Greg Clark. Initially, the OSFC approved just the Lark and Bradner sites. They had safety concerns about the Woodville/Lemoyne location, said Clark. “If we can’t find more suitable sites, the commission would allow us to put the building back on the current site,” said Clark. “A central location would be better than one on either side of town. But the OSFC would like us to continue to find something other than our current site. When they did the assessments of our buildings, they had concerns about our current location. It’s more suited for industrial use. We have I-280 to the west, Woodville Road to the north, Lemoyne Road to the east. So there are safety considerations with all the traffic. There are also petroleum pipelines near the school.” The Lark and Bradner sites also have limitations, he said. “There are folks who think they are too far away and I think they are a bit squeamish about that,” he said. In addition, the Bradner Road site is agricultural. “The only utilities readily available there is water. We’d have to add more to make that site ready to go. So we have some

Northwood looks at 3 sites for new school facility Continued from front page costs associated with that site. The Lark site, from a pure cost standpoint, would be the best because we already own it. We’d just knock the building down and build the new one. One-third of our kids could walk to school, which would be nice, so there would be cost efficiencies there by reducing busing expenses. Right now, we make busing available for all students. We have a few kids who use the crossing guard at Woodville and Lemoyne. But it would be a pretty busy highway to cross at rush hour. Current site Clark said he prefers the current site, despite the OSFC’s concerns. “Obviously we’ve been there forever and we’ve managed. It’s been a suitable site for the last 77 years. It’s what our community has grown accustomed to. All our athletic facilities are at that site.” There is not enough space for athletic

facilities at the Lark or Bradner sites, he added. “We probably need 40 acres in which to fit the athletic facilities,” he said. “That would add tremendous cost to the project, and it would have to be completely locally funded. The OSFC will not fund sports facilities. We have a football stadium, soccer field, and a track that is less than 10 years old at the current site. We don’t want to see all that investment just go away. If we’re not on that site, our athletic facilities would stay there.” If either the Bradner or Lark sites are chosen, plans would include athletic facilities at some point in the future, he said. The district must raise its local share of the project budget within 13 months before state funding can be released. If it is unable to do so, the district is considered “lapsed,” but can still participate in OSFC programs once local funding is obtained. The board will vote at a meeting on July 30 to place a 4.9-mill levy on the No-

vember ballot as part of the district’s local share of funding, according to Clark. The levy would be combined with a .25 percent earned income tax proposal, he added, and internal financing. Those on a fixed income would not be affected by the earned income tax. “We’re trying to be sensitive to those folks,” said Clark. If the levy is defeated, the district would try to get one passed again, he said. “I don’t know if we have a Plan B yet. We have a year to get our share put together. So we would have one, possibly two chances to be on the ballot should the board choose to do that. Right now, I’m focused on informing people what we’re talking about and getting this done in November.” If the levy is passed, construction plans would be implemented almost immediately, he said. “There is a year of planning, starting in January. We can tell the state we got our

part done. If everything goes perfectly, a new building would be constructed in the fall of 2016. Earlier this year, the district formed a Facilities Planning Committee, which held community forums to review its options after the OSFC in December offered state funding for the facility renovation and construction program. Following the forums, the committee recommended that the district participate in the program. “We do have a need,” said Clark. “Our facilities are old. If we don’t build new with the state, we’re going to have to make some major infrastructure investments some other way. Our newest building, the high school, will be 50 years old this fall. All our buildings look really good, we’ve kept them up. Regardless of whether we are partnering with the state for a new structure or not, we have to deal with the aging infrastructure of our buildings.

Lake restoration Continued from front page “Variability in soil types in the Ohio watersheds draining into Lake Erie, from the tight clay soils in northwest Ohio to the higher sand content soils in northeast Ohio, results in wide ranging potential for beneficial reuses of dredged material. Ohio continues to support strategies that address both beneficial reuse and land-based sediment reduction efforts,” the plan says. It expresses support for a Toledo Harbor pilot project for managing dredged material and the development of standards for in-water reuse of sediment. Another idea worth pursuing, the plan says, is establishing a Center of Innovation for Dredged Material in Northwest Ohio to support research in the reuse of dredged material. The public comment period will close Aug. 23. Comments may be submitted at public meetings or by emailing the commission at lakeeriecommission@lakeerie.

Oregon puts levy for seniors on ballet

By Kelly J. Kaczala Press News Editor

If they don’t know where the next money is going to come from, it’s hard to make plans.

Voters this fall will decide whether to support a 0.5-mill, five year levy on the ballot to maintain current senior citizen services and facilities in the city. City council at a meeting on Monday unanimously approved a resolution in favor of placing the measure on the Nov. 5 ballot. The levy would generate about $200,000 annually, according to Council President Tom Susor. Councilman James Seaman said the levy “is very important for our senior community.” “It’s a very honorable cause and very worthwhile for our community. What’s good for the senior community is good for Oregon. We don’t operate in a vacuum. It’s for all of us. We’ve had a lot of surveys, studies, interviews and guesswork, to [gauge] support for a senior levy. It’s what I’m going to vote for, and I think most of council is very supportive, also,” said Seaman. Councilman Sandy Bihn asked whether any of the revenue would go toward a new senior center or would it just be earmarked for operations at the current James Hancock Senior Center on Bay Shore Road. Law Director Paul Goldberg said, according to statute, revenue from the levy could be used for a new senior center. “I was informed that this is for operations and not for capital,” said Bihn. “This would indicate it is for both.” “It could be for either,” said Goldberg. “So it could be for a facility?” Bihn asked. “Absolutely,” said Goldberg. “So then we get into the discussion of `Does this mean the intent is to have the center where it’s at and expand it, or how does that fit into this proposal?” asked Bihn, a long time supporter of senior issues. “It would give us the opportunity in the future if there was a choice to pursue building a new senior center,” said Mayor Mike Seferian. “Revenues from this could be used for it. If there wasn’t, we would budget it for operations. It’s nice to give you the latitude to use it for a building fund, or an addition fund, or whatever. And the [senior center board] would merely decide how this would be spent. I think it is accurate in saying it would be genuinely used for operations and services for the senior center, but not just limited to that.” Susor said the funds would mostly be used for operations of the current facility, since it would “take a substantial amount of funds” for a new senior center. “Predominantly, I understand it would be for operations,” said Susor. “I don’t think we want to get into a war about the logistics or finalities of spending by the board that would determine how and where the

money is spent, and it should be watched and taken care of. I don’t think you want to tie the hands of the voters. They will ultimately get their opportunity to choose what they feel is best. Basically, we’re allowing the voters to decide a constant and consistent funding source for our senior community.”

Seaman agreed. “If they don’t know where the next money is going to come from, it’s hard to make plans. You need a few years to reach your goal. This would allow them to do that,” said Seaman. Robert Marquette, president of the senior center’s board, said the funds would be used to support current senior services. “It’s to expand on the services. I know the code and the resolution includes the word `facilities,’ which I think is misleading. We have no intention of building a senior center. Our intent strictly is to have senior services that are not available now.” “The population of Oregon has a lot of seniors and older population,” said Bihn. “We are underserved and the need is here.” But she added that there isn’t much room at the current senior center to accommodate or expand activities or services. “I think we get into this discussion in terms of how are we going to have these services because the space is very limited in terms of what you have,” said Bihn. “It’s always been the struggle. I will support putting this on the ballot, but I think we need to be very clear to the voters what it does or doesn’t mean, and what the plans are to provide these services. It’s an honest way to broker it and I would hope that would get you more support.” Marquette agreed.

1812 flag to fly at Lucas County Courthouse A 15-star, 15-stripe 1812 flag is being flown July 22-28 at the Lucas County Courthouse to commemorate the American victory at the Second Siege of Fort Meigs. Following their defeat at the First Siege of Fort Meigs in May of 1813, the British and Native Americans attempted a second siege July 21-28, 1813. British Gen. Henry Patrick Procter had close to 5,000 men, half of whom were Native Americans. Although Procter could not count on the cooperation of the British navy, he decided that he must make another attack on Fort Meigs or lose once and for all the use of his Indian allies.

In an effort to fool the Americans into opening the fort walls, British and Native American forces hid outside the fort in the nearby woods and staged a mock battle. American Gen. Green Clay, in command of Fort Meigs and with about 100 militiamen, sent notice of the arrival of the British forces to Gen. William Harrison, who did not send reinforcements. With the defensive advantage of a strong fort, Clay ultimately resisted the pressure to send out his men. After seven unsuccessful days of siege, the British troops withdrew and in early August, attacked Ft. Stephenson (modern-day Fremont) where they were defeated. Fol-

lowing the successful second defense of Fort Meigs, the American forces were prepared for a counter-attack. The Commemorative 15-star flag was raised over the Lucas County Courthouse on June 18, 2012, the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of War against Great Britain, and will fly during significant dates during the War of 1812 200th anniversary. The flag has been provided to each of Ohio’s counties through a donation to the Ohio War of 1812 Bicentennial Commission by Buckeye Cablesystem.

Another pot bust on turnpike By Press Staff Writer Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers have twice seized a large amount of marijuana from motorists on the Ohio Turnpike in Wood County in a two-day span. On July 20, troopers stopped a 2013 Chevrolet Traverse around 8 p.m. for a speeding violation on the turnpike in Lake Township. After a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the vehicle, troopers searched it and found 27 vacuum sealed bundles of marijuana, weighing a total of 33 pounds. The estimated street value is $149,820, the patrol said. The driver, Joseph M. Darrah, 30, Felton, Pa., was incarcerated in the Wood County jail and charged with possession and trafficking in marijuana, both third-degree felonies. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000, according to the patrol, which said the Traverse was rented and had a Montana registration.

Pot, cash seized On July 18, troopers seized marijuana with an estimated street value of more than $4.1 million and $13,908 in cash after two related traffic stops on the turnpike. About 907 pounds of marijuana were seized and six men face felony charges after the stop in Lake Township. A trooper observed a rented 2014 Subaru Outback, with Massachusetts registration, following too closely to a motor home that was also following a vehicle too closely. The trooper attempted to stop both vehicles at 9:04 a.m. but was only able to stop the Subaru at milepost 71 and detected an odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle and observed marijuana on the driver’s pants. A search of the vehicle revealed $9,720 in bundled cash. Troopers were able to determine the occupants of the Subaru and motor home were traveling together and located the motor home about a halfhour later at a turnpike service plaza. A search of that vehicle revealed the marijuana and $4,188 in cash. Frankie Junior Layz, 22, who was driving the Subaru and his passenger, William Luciano, Jr., 33, both of Rochester, New York, and those in the motor home, Justine T. Gould, 27, of Rochester, Jimmy Pross, Jr., 35, of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Jose M. Manzanares, 36, Houston, Texas, were incarcerated in the Wood County jail. They’ve been charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking, both second degree felonies, money laundering, a third-degree felony, and possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony.

Mich.-D.C. walk

Raising awareness for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer On a busy Thursday afternoon, The Press welcomed an unexpected visitor to our offices, located on Woodville Road in Millbury. Michigan native Jim Casha stopped into the Press office to grab some respite from the heat and to discuss his journey – a walk from Lansing to Washington, D.C. intended to raise awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. Once in Washington, he hopes to call on state and national lawmakers to address the issue by appropriating funding for intervention and outreach programs. The 58-year-old, who currently resides in Canada, made the walk three years ago, but felt the journey was worth repeating. “Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is something that’s touched me and my family personally,” he said. “Both of my adopted brothers were exposed to alcohol in the womb. They both developed mental health issues and both are in Michigan prisons. “People ask me what I got out of my last walk and I said ‘sore feet,’ but that’s not all,” Casha said. “I got to talk with a lot of Americans who understand, are sympathetic, and willing to help provide better care for the mentally ill and mentally disabled (fetal alcohol cases). “We sent many postcards to the President along the way asking for his help but received no answer,” he said. “My then 8year-old daughter wrote him as well. No answer. Since then, many people have died as a result of improper care for the mentally ill and mentally disabled. Many of them children. “I also learned a lot about why our political system doesn’t work, made lots of contacts, planted lots of seeds and realized just how far I could walk if I have to – 31

Casino tax revenue earmarked for bridge repairs By Larry Limpf News Editor The Wood County commissioners will designate the county’s share of casino tax revenue this year for bridge projects. The commissioners said last week they’ve approached Ray Huber, county engineer, about preparing a top 10 list of bridges in need of replacement as identified in the engineer’s annual bridge inspection report. The 10 bridges would be in addition to bridge projects Huber’s office has slated for 2014. The commissioners plan to use the casino revenue to fund design and engineering costs for the 10 spans, using area engineering firms beginning next year.

With preliminary design work complete, the 10 projects will be ready for contract bidding and construction which would be funded by motor vehicle gas tax revenues, grants and the county’s share of casino tax revenues. The commissioners will let Huber’s office determine which bridges are to be replaced, said Andrew Kalmar, county administrator. The commissioners in January estimated the county will receive about $750,000 in casino taxes this year, Kalmar said, but that appears to be too conservative. In April, the county received $356,441 and in July the county’s share was $400,109. “We’re doing better than expected,” he said. The county began receiving quarterly casino tax payments in 2012.

Nine persons face drug-related charges, including six from out of state, after being stopped for traffic offenses in Lake Township as part of the Operation Shield enforcement program. All of the stops occurred on I-280 over a three-day period. • Nicholas Williams, 23, and Marrio Dalton-Robinson, 24, both of Ypsilanti, Mich. were charged July 18 with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. • Daniel Wamer, 27, Toledo, was charged July 19 with possession of drugs. • Kenneth Beardon, Cleveland, 29, was charged July 19 with forgery. • Dale Wilson, 48, Toledo, was charged July 20 with possession of drugs. • On July 18, four persons in one vehicle were charged: Angela Trail, 41, Dublin, Va. was charged with possession of drugs and trafficking; Charles Smith, 41, Pulaski, Va., was charged with possession of drugs; William Hill, 49, Detroit, Mich., was charged with possession and trafficking, and Trenelaqui Smith, Pulaski, Va., 36, was charged with possession.

a tent, relied on the kindness of strangers along the way. He hoped to make the trip in 40 days. He arrived in D.C. at 4:20 p.m. on June 30th – 38 days. “A little ‘premature’ - just like many babies subjected to prenatal alcohol exposure,” he said. “I spent the first and second if July visiting the offices of many senators. “As important as this issue is - it is not on anyone’s radar,” he said. I walked every day for 38 days although one day I could only go four miles due to dehydration,” He said. “It was a great experience and thanks to the ‘kindness of strangers’ - I made it.”

The engineer’s office is responsible for maintaining 443 bridges, which by state definition, is a span of 10 feet or more. There are also about 2,500 culverts in the county but culverts 36 inches or less in diameter under township roads are the responsibility of township trustees. In 2011, Huber’s office completed three bridge projects. A replacement of a Dairy View Road bridge cost $183,000 and replacing superstructures on bridges on Ash Road and East Broadway cost $47,000 and $68,000 respectively. There were no bridge projects completed in the county last year, according to the engineer’s website, but sections of four roads, were improved, including Huffman Road at a cost of $709,079; Fostoria Road ($189,899); Kellogg Road ($350,169); Tracy Road ($175,500), and Pelton Road ($85,031).

Woodmore hires contractors By Larry Limpf News Editor The Woodmore school board has approved resolutions for hiring contractors for the new elementary/middle school, which is being funded by state and local revenues. Resolutions accepting bids were approved for: • Studer-Obringer, Inc. for general trades. • C.R.M., Inc., for roofing. • S.A., Comunale Co., Inc. for fire protection systems. • Marlin P. White & Sons, Inc. for plumbing. • Warner Mechanical Corp. for heating ventilation and air conditioning. • Lake Erie Electric of Toledo, Inc., for electrical. Woodmore voters last year approved a bond issue that will provide about $15.7 million for the local share of the project. The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission, formerly the Ohio School Facilities Commission, is providing just over $7 million for construction costs. The new building will replace a structure built in the early 1920s that has required extensive repairs and maintenance. License fees to be decided Recommendations for dog license fees in 2014 in Wood County will be presented to the county commissioners in August. The recommendations will include proposals for one-year, three-year and a permanent license, according to Andrew Kalmar, county administrator, who met re-

This Week in Government cently with the county auditor and Andrew Snyder, dog warden, to discuss the fees. Water line project The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a $1.29 million low-interest loan to the Northwestern Water and Sewer District to replace drinking water supply lines in the City of Rossford. Ohio’s Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) provides loans at interest rates below market rate. Over the 20year life of the loan, the district will save an estimated $283,700 when compared to the market rate, according to the EPA. The water and sewer district will upgrade 6,200 feet of water line at multiple sites, including Rinker Court, Colony Court, Colony Road, Windsor Drive, Elm Street, Eagle Point Road, Buck Road and Lime City Road. The work will create water line loops for redundancy of service, correct improperly connected service taps, replace old lines, increase line capacity and eliminate a few lines that are underneath houses. Pipe will be installed under Grassy Creek at one point with no significant impact on the creek. The entire project is being funded by the loan and will be repaid from a general repair and replacement fund without raising water rates.

Your Voice on the Street: by Stephanie Szozda

The Press Poll

Cats or dogs?

Do you agree with the verdict in the George Zimmerman -Trayvon Martin case? Yes No

To cast your ballot, go to Elijah Karl Elmore “Cats, because I have one. I like kittens because they’re so small. I like dogs too, but cats are my number one.”

Tammy Orth Northwood “Dogs. They are more fun. You can take them on trips or you can go to the beach to play Frisbee. They’re waiting for you when you get home. They make a bad day good."

‘Mount Trashmore’ To the editor: This letter has been on my mind for years; this morning I must sit here at the PC and get it done. It is truly an abbreviated version of what I would really like to say. Out West, we have the beautiful monument to past presidents called Mount Rushmore. In Northwood, we have the smelly monument of trash that I will call Mount Trashmore. This is the morning of July 12 – it is the second delightful day with low humidity, and the morning is just beautiful. We had 16-17 days of constant every-day rain, so it is just great to have the windows open all night and not have to worry about wet carpets. But wait, as I begin to wake up about 6:30 a.m., I can tell immediately the direction of the wind this morning without lifting my head. It is from the north. You may ask, how I know this. The air in my room has that putrid smell of Mt Trashmore (“The Mount”) – the Northwood landfill and mound of trash. What a wonderful way for all of us living beneath this mound of trash to exist – every sunset is destroyed, and almost every day has that distinct smell as you drive I-280. Lucky me, the winds do not come from the north very often but pity the folks to the East of “The Mount.” No wonder Woodville Road has become an area of vacant buildings – Woodville Mall has become a thing of the past and will probably be torn down. People

Joe Huether Gibsonburg “Dogs, because a dog is a man's second best friend.”


Matt Miller Northwood “Cats. I brought one home when I was a senior in high school. So I don’t really have a preference, I just happen to have a cat.”

Beth Kish Oregon “Dogs. I have one dog I got for my daughter when she was in kindergarten. I prefer dogs because dogs are more responsive and interactive.

downwind cannot sell their homes. Who would want to live and work downwind from “The Mount?” How high does this go? There is no end to it. It is probably about time to raise the maximum height again so we can continue the fill of “The Mount.” Now we have construction of a road worth millions so we don’t block the flow of trucks dumping more trash into “The Mount.” Is there progress being made here? Is there any governmental organization that can control this nightmare for the folks beneath “The Mount?” Rick Rowland Lake Township

No surprise To the editor: In the June 17 Suburban Press article by Cynthia L. Jacoby entitled “Sales tax becoming touchy issue in Ottawa County, the writer points out the Democrats on the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners on March 13 made a temporary tax permanent without taking it to a vote of the people. While Republicans controlled the commission, they passed a temporary tax increase and avoided pay raises. Last fall, the Ohio Democratic Party, led by Chris Redfern, campaigned against past commissioner Mark Stahl, condemning him for raising taxes without asking the

voters for their opinion. After their candidate, Jodi Regal, was elected, she, along with the other Democratic commissioner, immediately did exactly what her party boss had declared to be inappropriate – they passed a permanent tax increase, even though the economy is now improving. This situation is just another example of Redfern’s tactics. He promotes one position to get his candidate elected and then has his party minion do just the opposite. What a surprise. You must conclude you cannot trust anything Redfern says. Now we will be paying more every time we go to the store, on a permanent basis. We have two Democratic commissioners to thank for that. These local politicians seem to follow the party line by taking temporary emergency tax increases and then making them permanent without regard for the electorate’s wishes. Warren Will Marblehead

Volunteer efforts To the editor: I want to thank publicly all the volunteers from the Walbridge Centennial Committee for their hard work and dedication in planning all the events this summer for our 100th anniversary. Special thanks go to Darlene Limmer, Centennial President, and Melanie Bowen,

for pulling all the volunteers together and giving them direction and purpose. The fundraisers they planned included a sock hop, Bob Evans day, and a Pub Crawl, where a percentage of sales were given back. They also sold t-shirts, souvenir history booklets, cookbooks and other things that raised enough money to pay not only for our Centennial Day, but also a baseball game and fireworks to be held Aug. 10. Walbridge needs the expertise from these volunteers and the volunteers from Walbridge Fest to hold events in our village for the enjoyment of our residents and neighboring communities. Village council hopes the combined efforts of both organizations can continue in partnership for future events. Ken Gilsdorf Walbridge Village Council

Support appreciated To the editor: Habitat for Humanity of Ottawa County was awarded a grant from the Ottawa County Community Foundation to help with the costs of materials to help build a decent, simple and affordable home for a qualified family in Ottawa County. Habitat is currently building a home for a family in the village of Oak Harbor. We would like to thank the Foundation for their continued support.

Do you want to really learn something? Try teaching One of the best ways to learn is by teaching. Teaching forces you to really understand the material in order to relay it. Learning only for yourself is not as effective as learning in order to help someone else. The process of teaching forces you to really understand the material you are conveying. You must first have a thorough comprehension yourself before you can share it with someone else. Teaching is a powerful learning technique when you first strive to thoroughly comprehend the information yourself. Effective teachers are those who know what they are talking about. The best teachers teach by example because they have already successfully used the material they are sharing. Whenever you help another person solve a problem or overcome an obstacle, both of you learn and benefit. Be willing to even go out of your way to offer assistance. Whenever you give, you also receive. Thinking only of yourself is shortsighted. A teacher provides information. You can only offer solutions, ideas, and insight. How someone reacts is up to them.

by Bryan Golden student decides what to do with the knowledge. Some students pay attention while others don’t care. A teacher cannot force someone to learn, nor should a teacher be offended by disinterested students. There is no point to arguing with someone who ignores what you offer or disagrees with you. Poor teachers have trouble making their information easily understood. Incompetent teachers provide misinformation. Successful teachers teach from experience so that their students benefit and are able to utilize what is being taught. It’s possible for someone to feel teaching is an imposition or a waste of valuable time. This attitude harms you. Helping others is a great way to attract the things you

want into your life. However the help you offer must not have any strings attached. You want to provide assistance because of what it will do for the other person, not for what you can get out of it. Make sure any information you give is accurate. If you don’t know an answer, either say so or find out what it is from a reliable source. Bad information is worse than no information. Teaching is a way to help others while helping yourself. It is not a strategy to show off. As much as you may know something and be willing to teach others, not everyone is receptive to being helped. Some people don’t want help or don’t think they need it. As a teacher, you offer assistance. You never pressure someone into taking it. If your offer is declined, respect the other person’s wishes. You can also learn from the people you help. Insight can be gained from the questions they ask, the problems they have, suggestions they make, or any confusion they experience. Their perspective may be different than yours. Seek to understand how and why they think the way they do. How

have they been affected by their experiences? Leaning is an endless circle. At times, it may be impossible to differentiate between the student and the teacher. This is especially true when teaching children. Your own spirit gets recharged through interaction with them. You should marvel at their unquenchable curiosity along with how they are constantly amazed by each new discovery. Regardless of the student’s age, the best teachers teach by example. A powerful message is delivered when your words and actions reinforce each other. Be open to those who show a genuine desire for assistance. Be generous with your time. Countless benefits accrue when you learn by teaching. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book. Visit www.BryanGolden. com or your bookstore.

In this writer’s experience, canning isn’t rocket science By Jill Richardson When I arrived to help my friends Tom and Terri with their garden, they eagerly showed me a 10-pound zucchini. “I just wanted to see how big it would get,” Tom said, explaining why he didn’t pick it when it was smaller. “Do you want it?” “I’ll take it,” I replied, “But are you sure you don’t want it? I can give you recipes.” “I can think of some people I want to hit over the head with it,” replied Terri. “I’m not going to make zucchini bread. Besides, we have all of these.” She gestured at a small pile of normal-sized zucchinis they grew. And still more were growing. Too Much Zucchini syndrome is well known among gardeners. There’s even an official “Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch” day — August 8. In Tom’s garden, the excess isn’t limited to zucchini. There are the runaway cucumber plants that grow enough to feed a small army, and then there are the tomatoes. Nowadays, most of us buy what we need from the store when we need it, so the problem of growing too much produce is unfamiliar. Those of us who are partici-

Guest Editorial pating in the resurgence of gardening are magically transported back to the annual rhythms of an earlier time. For us, summer is for growing food and saving it to be eaten over the winter. This way, you eat fresh fruits and veggies when they are at the peak of ripeness, and you can continue to enjoy them pickled, fermented, dehydrated, canned, or frozen throughout the year. I took the plunge and began canning a few years ago when I found a farmer selling overripe strawberries for $1 per pint. What a deal! They were too plentiful to eat fresh before they spoiled, but they were ideal for jam. And you know what? There’s no mystery to making jam. The recipe usually involves fruit, sugar, maybe lemon juice or pectin, and nothing else unless you feel like getting creative. (This year, I made va-

nilla cardamom blackberry jam.) Since my first jam-making adventure, I’ve often invited friends over to see how it’s done. They arrive expecting some elaborate process. After we ladle boiling jam into hot jars and submerge them in boiling water for a set period of time (around 15 minutes), my friends always ask, “That’s it?” Yep, that’s all there is to it. It ain’t rocket science. My annual routine includes an epic tomato sauce-canning weekend each summer. It’s a pain to scout farmers’ markets until I can find a good deal on 80 pounds of overripe tomatoes and then drop everything to cook for the next two days. Yet it’s so worth it all year long. By slowly cooking the sauce on the lowest setting for an entire day, I achieve an amazing, sweet roasted flavor. My secret ingredient is a splash of apple cider vinegar. Once the sauce is put away, I’ve got a whole year of easy, homemade pastas and pizzas ready to go. You can’t buy sauce that tastes this good. This year, I’ve gained a new skill: fermentation. Turning cabbage into sauerkraut does not just preserve it — it turns it into a probiotic superfood. Fermentation can break

down chemicals that interfere with absorbing nutrients, make nutrients more available to your body, and provide your gut with beneficial microbes. Our ancestors lived without refrigerators, so they put up food because they had to. Even in a modern world of grocery stores and global markets, sometimes the best-tasting and healthiest choices are still the ones you grow and preserve yourself. What about zucchini? You can’t turn it into jam or pickles. But you can grate it and toss the stuff into pasta, where it melts away. Or make zucchini bread. Or sauté sliced zucchini in olive oil, sea salt, and dill. Or put little chunks of it in soups. To preserve zucchini, slice it, blanch it for three minutes in boiling water, and stick it in your freezer. That mammoth 10-pounder? I made three batches of zucchini bread and five meals out of it. There’s a bit more left in my fridge. Want some?

Education Published fourth week of month.

Oregon youth completes Patrol’s Jr. Cadet Program Jonathan Grayczyk, of Oregon, completed the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Junior Cadet Program, held June 23-27 at the Highway Patrol Training Academy in Columbus. He was one of 48 participants selected from applications submitted by young men and women. Applicants attended Buckeye Boys and Girls State, exhibited exemplary performance throughout the school year, or were eligible children of Patrol employees who will be high school seniors this year. The Junior Cadet program is designed to give youths a better insight into the challenges faced by law enforcement officers by enabling them to experience a typical week at the Training Academy. The cadets sleep in the dormitories, dine in the cafeteria and learn from Patrol Academy staff regarding crash investigation, officer/violator contacts, self-defense tactics, K-9 operations, building searches, motorcycle operations, and impaired driver apprehension. Grayczyk will be a senior at Cardinal Stritch High School this year. His interest in law enforcement follows a longstanding family tradition – his grandfather retired from Sylvania police after 33 years of service and his father has been a police officer for 30 years, currently working with Oregon Police.

Scholarships The Toledo Schwaben Verein, German American Festival Society, Inc., has awarded seven $500 scholarships. Recipients include Thomas Henry, Owens Community College; Elise Luhmann, University of Toledo; Monica Mason, Kent State University; Brian Mathe, Michigan Tech; Henry Witt, University of Findlay. The Chris Ziegler Scholarship was awarded to Craig Lohmann, Bowling Green State University. The Marie Schmalzried Scholarship was awarded to Emily Belcik, Capital University.

Academic honors Kent State: Karli Hollister, of Woodville.

Graduates Grand Valley State University: Chase Baldwin, of Pemberville; Austin Dean, of Woodville.

This year’s show is entitled, “Sing Together.” He will be one of the 200 singer from throughout the state who will sing with the choir at the 12-day State Fair, which is running July 24-Aug. 4. A student at Lake High School, Henninger has participated in Performance Chorale Show Choir, Barbershop Quartet and theatrical productions. After converging at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus on July 18, choir members spent five days in rigorous rehearsals prior to the fair’s opening. The choir was scheduled to perform more than 100 times for fairgoers at various sites throughout the 360-acre fairgrounds.

Scout seeking donations Hunter Liming. of Oak Harbor, is seeking help to complete his Eagle Scout project.

Liming, of Troop 385, from Genoa, is planning a project that would benefit the Oak Harbor High School soccer program – a 20-foot press box that would provide shelter from the weather for a photographer, video recorder, and announcer. Liming is looking for help in the form of monetary donations and/or materials. To make a donation or for more information, call 419-707-3092 or email hunter.

Scholarships awarded The Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT) and the Toledo Poznan Alliance (TPA) joined forces and awarded three scholarships totaling more than $2,000 to area students, including the first Martin A. Blaszczyk Memorial Scholarship. Blaszczyk was the editor of the Lagrange St. News and a strong advocate for the Toledo Polish community for more than 30 years. He died of cancer on April 27, 2013. He was 59. Emily Howland, of Curtice, who at-

tends Lourdes University, became the first recipient of the Blaszczyk Memorial Scholarship. The other winners included Joseph A. DuPuis, of Toledo who attends St. Francis de Sales High School, and Kassidy Rejent, of Bowling Green, who attends Notre Dame Academy. Each winner will receive a $750 check. Scholarship applicants had to fill out an application and compose an essay on “what having a Polish heritage means to me.” Applications were reviewed by a sixperson panel. Howland, who is scheduled to graduate from Lourdes in the Fall 2016, wrote about her great grandparents who, during the Great Depression helped those less fortunate. She also touched on her family and how they carry on Polish traditions during Easter and Christmas.

Clay students honored Clay High School students Emily Wilburn, Lindsay TenEyck, Brooke Wilson and Tabitha Chizmar earned first-place honors for their project, “The Effects of Family Life on the Social and Academic Health of Children” at the High School Research Poster Gala at Lake Erie Center. The program, “Building an Environmental Science Learning Community at the Land-Lake Ecosystem Interface” partners eight advanced graduate students at UT with eight teachers and their students at seven high schools to build an Environmental Science Learning Community. In addition to Clay, Central Catholic, Start, Ottawa Hills, Bowsher, Sylvania Northview and Toledo Early College high schools participated in the program. Wilburn, TenEyck, Wilson and Chizmar investigated how a child’s home life might affect grades and social relations, examining in particular the roles of sibling relationships, divorce, parents’ jobs and neighborhoods.

Phineas Ballyhoo, the advance clown and goodwill ambassador of the Kelly Miller Circus paid a visit to Oregon Tuesday, July 23. The Clay High School Alumni Association welcomed the lead clown, better known as “J. P. Ballyhoo,” and took the entertainer around to meet and greet children in East Toledo and Oregon. While entertaining children at day care centers, ice cream stores, and the Oregon public library, Mr. Ballyhoo promoted the upcoming Kelly Miller Circus, which is coming to Clay High School Wednesday, Aug. 7. The circus will be performing two shows – 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. that day. J.P. Ballyhoo made certain to let everyone know there will be three elephants in the show and children can arrive an hour early before the show if they would like to take a ride on one of the elephants. He

noted there will be camel rides too. As advance clown, Mr. Ballyhoo, said he enjoys telling the children and parents about the circus, which he described as a family show. “Kelly Miller Circus is owned by John Ringling North II, a direct descendant of the famed Ringling Brothers Circus family,” he said. “Our show is performed in a style that you don’t see anymore. It is reminiscent of the circus shows from many years past, so both young and old can enjoy the entertainment.” The circus show coming to Oregon will feature Steve and Ryan, the famed clowns who starred for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. “Steve and Ryan have a unique brand of zany humor and a lot of old fashioned clowning to entertain those who come to the show,” Mr. Ballyhoo said. The circus invites the greater Oregon community to come out to Clay High School on the morning of Aug. 7, to watch the big

tent being raised by the elephants at 9 a.m. In addition to elephants and camels, the 2013 circus will feature performing tigers and zebras, along a slew of amazing acts, including aerialists winging and flying through the air, musicians, dancers, magicians, and jugglers. The finale will include a birthday party celebrating 75 years of sensational circus. Tickets for the Kelly Miller Circus can be purchased in advance at the Oregon Board of Education office, the Maumee Bay General Store, the Maumee Bay Veterinarian Hospital and 2nd Avenue Hair & Nail Salon. Proceeds from the advance ticket sales benefit the Clay High School Alumni Association. Advance circus tickets are $10 for adults and under 12 years of age are $6. On the day of the circus, adult tickets are $15 and under 12 are $7. Additional information can be found at or at

Five easy ways to save on back-to-school stuff The new school year is more than a month away, but back-to-school sales are already in full swing. To get real steals on school and office supplies, shoppers should hit stores during the first days of August. The September 2013 issue of ShopSmart magazine, from Consumer Reports, features five easy tricks for saving on educational essentials. “Don’t dash into an office-supply store to buy everything,” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “If you find yourself beyond the sale bins, you could wind up paying more than twice as much as at a discount store.” ShopSmart also conducted a price scan of common school and office supplies and

found the biggest differences in price – at least 50 percent – on these seven items – notebook paper, security envelopes, sticky notes, one-subject notebooks, two-pocket folders, glue sticks, and pens. Walmart was the low-price winner, but similar items were just a few cents more at Target. Five ways to save • Look for store-brand supplies. They’re not easy to find (Walmart had almost none), but shoppers who do can save as much as 74 percent compared to namebrand supplies. • Check out weekly sales circulars the first of the month for the best deals. Sites

such as and SundaySaver. com links shoppers to local ads for dozens of stores. • Download the Weekly Ads & Sales app. This mobile tool, free for Apple, allows users to view the latest ad pages while on the go without dealing with paper clutter. • Look for sales online. ShopSmart found online prices for OfficeDepot, Staples, Target and Walmart closely matched those in stores, but shoppers may have to shell out for shipping. • Ask for a price match. Shoppers who find a better deal somewhere else can show their phone or a paper ad at checkout at stores with price-matching policies.

As we prepare to flip the calendar page to August, officials with the Ohio Association of School Nurses want to let parents know that now is the time to schedule school-required vaccinations. Kate King, RN, President of the Ohio Association of School Nurses, and school nurse with Columbus City Schools, wants to emphasize that parents or guardians who wait until school is about to start may have difficulty making an appointment with their pediatrician or primary care provider. “Past experience has shown us that provider’s offices will be overrun right before school starts,” King noted. “We encourage parents and guardians to schedule your child or children’s vaccinations now to avoid any unnecessary delays.” Children entering kindergarten must be vaccinated for polio, chicken pox, measles/mumps/rubella, hepatitis B, and diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis. Students entering the seventh grade in Ohio are required to have a booster shot of the Tdap vaccination (Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis). In addition to mandatory vaccines, CDC recommends that children older than 6 months have a flu shot, and that adolescents have the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine. King pointed out, “Since teenagers in particular don’t go to the doctor often, it’s important to seize the opportunity for them to get all recommended shots while they are there.” Ohio law does not specify immunization requirements for college enrollment, but the law does require students to disclose whether they’re immunized against meningitis and Hepatitis B before they can live in on-campus housing. Many Ohio colleges do require newly enrolled students to have a meningococcal disease vaccine. Students are advised to check their university or college entrance rules for immunization requirements.

Preschool sign-ups As a new school year approaches, applications for children birth to 4 years old are now being accepted at each of the nine preschool centers operated by WSOS. Center locations include Genoa, Fremont, Pemberville, Bowling Green, and Perrysburg/ Rossford. Eligible families are those whose total annual income does not exceed 100 percent of the federal poverty guidelines for Early Head Start/Head Start and 200 percent for the Early Childhood Education Program. Children with special needs are also eligible for these services. All WSOS childhood centers have earned the highest Step Up to Quality designation – Three Stars – awarded by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (DJFS), Children Services Division.

DeCosta celebrates 30 years at Camp Perry’s range By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer

The challenge of working with these young people and building the ranges is very rewarding and keeps me going.

Many in the area may know the National Rifle and Pistol matches as an annual event that brings tourists to the area. But for others, it is a chance to show off their talents in a competition that features over 6,000 participants each year. The event, which has been held for over 100 years at Camp Perry, is operated by the Civilian Marksmanship Program in conjunction with the National Rifle Association and the Ohio National Guard. The competition, which ranges from beginners to some of the world’s best, will run through Aug. 14. It attracts competitors, their families, and onlookers from all over the country. For instance, a woman from Wyoming makes the trip to Northwest Ohio each year for the event, and she is not alone. “I love coming to this event,” said Steve Simmons, a 21-year-old from Wilmington, Del., who is competing. “It’s great to be here at the shooting competition with all of the other shooters. It’s a special time of year that I always look forward to.” The primary goal of the CMP is to ensure safety for its participants, according to the website, “The CMP is dedicated to the respect for and handling of firearms, instilling patriotism and discipline in our youth participants. The CMP provides its constituents with the highest level of instruction in the proper control of firearms by highly-skilled coaches and veteran range safety officers in the classroom, at our ranges and wherever the CMP banner is displayed,” the website notes. Part of what makes this event run so smoothly is the work done by the Range Operations, a unit that has been run for the last 30 years by Joe DeCosta. “Most of our Range Operations are local kids from Oak Harbor that work at Camp Perry during the National Matches. Without their help and hard work, the matches would not be possible,” said Christine El-

David Wilburn, 17, of Port Clinton, works with Range Operations during the National Rifle and Pistol matches. (Photo courtesy of CMP Archives) der, Camp Perry communications manager. DeCosta, a native of Massachusetts, was a member of the Marine Corps shooting team and competed at Camp Perry back in his heyday. “After I retired, I started coming up here and I was up here as a volunteer on the ranges. The range engineer who had the job for 25 years, brought me on in 1983 and I joined with him to see what was going on. It didn’t take me long to get a grasp of things and then I took over for him.” DeCosta, known to many as “Mr. D.” lives in Port Ritchie, Fla. during the fall and winter months before migrating back to Ottawa County on May 1 every year. His work is usually completed around Labor Day and it is then that DeCosta returns home to Port

Ritchie, located just outside of Clearwater. A National Rifle Association employee, DeCosta notes that, during the heart of the season, he and his co-workers will regularly log 80 to 90 hours per week. Joe DeCosta “We start at 6 a.m. and after the shooting is over, we pick up the trash and clean all the ranges and the targets. We have everything ready for the next day. My

philosophy is we don’t leave until we’re ready for the next day. We’ll work 12 hours per day for seven days per week, 84 hours per week. It’s a way for the kids to have a little more money. We do manual labor here — the kids are hard workers. We have a lot of people here; we like to hire people when they’re young and then they come back and have gained more experience.” With many of the hours coming via overtime, the paychecks can be quite lucrative and helpful to young people trying to save money for college. DeCosta is still happy working at Camp Perry each summer, even after three decades. “I’m not sure when I’ll retire,” he said. “The challenge of working with these young people and building the ranges is very rewarding and keeps me going. I’m not stupid. There’s going to come a time when I say, ‘I think I’ve had enough.’ They’ll probably want someone to work with me for a year or two and then have it passed down.” For more information, visit www., or contact the CMP Competitions Department at or 419-635-2141, ext. 1101 or 1114.

Chris Bear, of Bear Automotive, Oregon, races at Norwalk in a dragster built by Mark Horton of Millbury. (Press photo by Harold Hamilton

Millbury company is leader in building dragsters By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer Millbury resident Mark Horton has one hobby. “I like to build race cars,” said Horton, 59, a 1972 Lake High School graduate. Don’t call what Horton and his cohorts do at his Millbury-based shop, American Race Cars, a job. The business has been rebuilding race cars and building chassis for dragsters for eight years. “It’s been a good living,” said Horton, who has five employees and a partner, Travis Colangelo. “Everybody who works here likes what they’re doing, and that means a lot in jobs nowadays. They get paid good, too, but they like their job. That means a lot. They get along and it’s a small company, and everybody is happy and working away.” The cars Horton’s company builds compete in the Sportsman dragster class on the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA), National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and bracket series (local tracks) circuits. “Most of the people (who compete) in the Sportsman have other jobs,” Horton said. “The professionals, that’s all they do all year long, work on their cars.” Sportsman dragsters are 19-22 feet in length and feature anywhere from 7002,000 horsepower. Some cars can cover a quarter mile in 6.25 seconds, which translates to about 215 miles per hour. “We race one-eighth mile at some of the southern tracks,” Horton said. “They’re all old tracks. In the top dragster class we have some that have been 4.02 (seconds), or around 177 miles an hour.” Horton became a driver right out of high school and competed for several years. He said he took this year off from competi-

(Press photo by Harold Hamilton tion to concentrate on his business. “We’re one of the top Sportsman car builders in the country,” said Horton, who earned an IHRA Super Rod world championship as a driver in 1999. “I’m not bragging, because I’m not that way. I’m being honest. In the last eight years we’ve sold

about 450 cars. Everything having to do with race cars, we do in-house. No motors, we just work on the chassis.” Horton said he and Colangelo started American Race Cars when other car builders and manufacturers didn’t take their suggestions seriously enough.

“We wanted to make changes to some other cars we were running,” Horton said. “They said their cars were good. We just thought we could make them better. That’s kind of how we got started in this.” American Race Cars has two team cars that represent the business. They are driven by Elyria resident Ray Connolly and Sherman Adcock, who lives in Columbus, Ga. “Ray takes our rigs to races to represent us,” Horton said, “and Sherman has a big sponsorship with Peak Motor Oil. Both people who drive for me have been world champions. The cars we race run the NHRA circuit, where all the pros run. We’ll to go Norwalk and places like that. We try to run wherever the national tour is, where the pay is decent – Bristol (Tenn.), St. Louis, Joliet, (Ill.), New Jersey, Reading, Pa., Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas. These things go from one end of the country to the other.” Horton said American Race Cars will have 20-25 cars represented at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis on Labor Day. Winning on the track will be a tough task, due to the fact that each class the company’s cars compete in will have between 80-100 other cars entered. “Ray and Sherman will be at the Nationals,” Horton said. “We have good equipment. You just need a little bit of luck.” Horton’s company has built about 400 full-size dragsters and 50 junior dragsters in the past eight years. He said the plan is to begin building sprint cars in addition to dragsters. “We’ve started repairing wrecked sprint cars,” Horton said. “It just gives us some other way to make a living. We’re going to build a couple this winter.” Horton’s employees at American Race Cars include Brett Murphy, Denny Shiffert, Brian Horton, Kevin Bradshaw and Joe Driscoll.

Luckey father and son getting back to the race track By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writers

Father and son, race car drivers Ron Bloomfield Sr. and Ronnie Bloomfield Jr., of Luckey. (Press photo by Russ Lytle)

I’ll probably do this my whole life

Local race car driver Ron Bloomfield Sr. hasn’t done a lot of racing this season, but he has a good reason. Bloomfield Sr. promised his wife, Jane, he wouldn’t “waste money” until the family saved up enough cash and took a family vacation to Alaska this summer. That is exactly what the Bloomfields did this month. “It was a fair deal,” Ron Sr. said. “We planned it for two years. We flew into Anchorage and stayed in Wasilla, which is kind of in the middle of Anchorage and Fairbanks. We drove and did everything there is to do. If anyone can’t think of where to go for a vacation, Alaska is the place to go.” Ron Sr.’s son, Ronnie Jr., was impressed as well. “We went whitewater rafting, rented a cabin, went zip-lining,” Ronnie Jr. said. “We saw Mount McKinley. It was beautiful. We rented four-wheelers and drove up a mountain and went to an old mine from the 1940s.” Bloomfield Sr. and his son, who live near Luckey, are ready to resume racing. The elder Bloomfield, 52, took up racing at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon seven years ago, when his son was 14. They’ve been racing together ever since. “I always wanted to do something like that when I was young,” Ron Sr. said. “When Ron was 14, you’re excited about a lot of stuff. We decided to build our own race car by Oakshade’s rules (specifications). We got a 1980 Camaro and followed the rule book to the T. “When we went out there at Oakshade for their first time, I looked at the other guys and said, ‘we don’t have to race against those guys.’ We went out there and did have to race against those A-main Bomber cars. Our first year was to go out there and see what you need; we weren’t competitive at all. We bought another car at the end of the next season. It was a Bomber A-main car.” Ron Sr. finished 11th in the points standings in the Bombers division in year three of racing. The following year, Ron had perfect attendance at Oakshade but things took a nasty turn in 2009, when he suffered a heart attack. “It just about killed me,” he said. “When the doctors worked on me, they said I was the luckiest person they had ever seen, to live through that heart attack. They said I would never walk up a flight of stairs. We have heart conditions in my family. I got through it and ended up being able to do what I want to do. It didn’t take away my quality of life.” Ron Sr. has only competed at Oakshade

twice this season and is 60th in the Bombers points standings, with 140 points. He has also competed at Eldora Speedway and at Sandusky Speedway, winning that track’s fabled A-main “hangover” race on Jan. 1 a few years ago. “I got in enough points down there at Eldora, after I had my heart attack, that I was invited to the Field of Dreams, when the big guys come and race,” Ron Sr. said. “I had to go in the hospital for an operation and didn’t get to go to it.” Ron Sr. said he gets a kick out of watching his son compete. Ronnie Jr. is the only one of Ron Sr. and Jane’s three kids who took up racing. They also have two daughters: Tinamarie, 32, and Julia, 30. “I love it,” Ron Sr. said of watching his son. “I feel you’re safe in the car, or we

wouldn’t do it. There’s always a chance somebody can get hurt, playing football or whatever. As far as the cars go, I really do feel safe in those cars. They’re made to be in a wreck - not that you want to wreck them. My wife gets nervous about this stuff. She would rather us not do it, but everybody’s got to have fun.” Ronnie Jr. has switched from the Bombers division to Enduro racing at Oakshade and has done fairly well. He is fourth in points at Oakshade, 28 points behind the leader, with his No. 14 modified 1980 Monte Carlo station wagon. “There are only six or seven Enduro races a year, and the first one got rained out,” Ronnie Jr. said. “The second race, I was close to the front and my engine blew up. The next race, I had an overheating problem and I finished second. The third race was July 4 and I led the first 100 laps and had overheating problems. I had carburetor problems with eight laps to go and ended up fourth and finished 192 laps.” One reason Ronnie Jr. switched from racing in the Bombers division to Enduro racing was the possibility of better paydays. “The same rules apply as Bombers, except you are allowed to run snow tires in Enduro,” Ronnie Jr. said. “It’s a mud race. It also has to be a steel-bodied car. You’re allowed to run aluminum bodies in Bombers. In Enduros, it’s $1,000 to win every race, guaranteed. Second place is around $400.

On a Saturday night Bomber race, an AMain Bomber win is about $75. If you compare them, the Enduro races have a better payout.” It should come as no surprise that Ronnie Jr. picked a career where he gets to work with moving parts. He is a diesel mechanic at Jim’s Garage in Perrysburg. “My dad was a mechanic,” Ronnie Jr. said. “When I was 13 or 14 somebody gave us an old Camaro and we put a roll cage in it and went out and just learned a lot, I guess you could say. That was our first race car. My dad has always had four-wheelers and he got me into things with motors. In high school I restored an old Jeep when I was 16. Me and my dad restored it and painted it. That was our first father-son project and that snowballed into building things.” Ronnie Jr. said the best thing about racing with his dad is, well, racing with and spending time with his dad. “It’s a father-son thing, being friends with my dad,” he said. “That, and building stuff. I like that more than racing. Most of the time you’re not racing, you’re working on the cars.” Ronnie Jr. plans to compete in the next Enduro race at Oakshade, on Sept. 7. The final race of the year, a 250-lap event, is scheduled for Sept. 29. “I’ll probably do this my whole life,” Ronnie Jr. said. “Not big time, just around Oakshade when I have the money.”

St. John heads into second year of ‘Urban Renewal’ optimistic Ohio State redshirt junior offensive lineman Ben St. John and his Buckeye teammates haven’t exactly had it easy since the end of last season. St. John, a 2010 graduate of Woodmore High School, and the rest of the Buckeyes have been sweating it out in the weight room under the direction of Mickey Mariotti, OSU’s assistant director for football sports performance, in preparation for the first day of fall practice on Aug. 4. “It’s been a tough offseason working out,” said the 6-foot-3, 290-pound St. John. “I feel I’m getting stronger and I’m in better condition. Coach Mick and his staff do a great job with us in the offseason, and I try to buy into that and do what they ask me to do.” Chances are St. John, a preferred walkon who is majoring in nutrition and industry, will never see the field in 2013.

Buckeyes have four starters returning on the offensive line, and the only open spot is at right tackle, where the front-runners are sophomores Taylor Decker (6-7, 315) and Chase Farris (6-4, 300). St. John’s Jesuit graduate Jack Mewhort, a 6-7, 308-pound senior returns at

left tackle after an All-Big Ten junior year. “He’s someone I really look up to,” St. John said. “I’m optimistic,” St. John said of his chances of getting playing time this fall. “I go out there every day and do the best I can do and push myself to my limit. There’s nothing more I can do than do my best and hope my opportunities come.” St. John said the OSU coaching staff has yet to announce a three-deep depth chart, but he knows things will get sorted out the first day of fall camp, when incoming freshmen are added to the mix. “I’ve been practicing at guard and tackle through the summer and working on my technique for both,” St. John said. “I’m not sure if I’m going to have a firm spot or if they’re going to move me around. I love the sport and I understand the sport. I think I have a pretty good grasp of the offense, and that makes me an asset. The coaches can say you’re going here or going here, and that makes my value go up.” St. John, who wears number 67, said

the Ohio State campus is buzzing with anticipation of what many experts predict will be a championship-caliber season for the Buckeyes. Ohio State is favored to win the Big Ten title and is a trendy pick to face Alabama in the BCS national championship game. “We’re all excited,” St. John said. “We are coming off a 12-0 season last year and we have expectations from everybody. Today (July 24) it was a little cooler in Columbus and people are talking and tweeting like, ‘Hey, it’s football season.’ I get goosebumps thinking about it, that the season is right around the corner.” The Buckeyes open the season Aug. 31 against Mid-American Conference foe Buffalo at noon at Ohio Stadium. “We do team runs in the stadium, and I was in there last weekend,” St. John said. “You hear songs come on (the loudspeakers) and it brings back a lot of emotions.

Drown wins thriller Summer Nationals Late Model event By Brian Liskai Special to The Press Doug Drown and his Weekly Racing team almost didn’t race at Attica Raceway Park Friday night. But a last minute decision paid off as the Wooster, Ohio driver battled with Brandon Sheppard and Bobby Pierce the entire 40 laps before taking the $5,000 victory for race #25 of the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Hell Tour. While the scorecard will say he led all 40 laps on Central Ohio Farmers/Summit Racing Equipment Night, Drown, Sheppard and Pierce raced side by side by side nearly the entire distance. In fact, Sheppard, who leads the Summer Nationals points, executed a slider for the lead as they exited turn four to complete lap 38, but the caution flew, keeping Drown at the point. Drown showed his savvy on the restart, diamonding off the fourth corner and swooping in front of Sheppard, breaking his momentum and then diving down to the bottom of turns one and two to block as “The Hammer” drove to his fifth career win at Attica “Every time I was looking out the corner of my eye I saw Bobby (Pierce) and I looked at the scoreboard and saw he was third and I was like, ‘oh man he must be on my butt.’ And then when he dove in there…I don’t know how many laps, I was trying to count, but I just had to hit my marks. The Weekly Electric, Efco Power Equipment, Wooster Glass, Rocket Chassis was unbelievable,” said Drown in the Engine Pro Victory Lane. “Malcuit Racing Engines got us to victory lane again…I think this is number 11. I didn’t know how we were going to do tonight but Sean (Weekly) fine-tuned the car again and right tire choice and it just worked out for us,” continued Drown. “I feel like I’m young yet but obviously I have like 15 years on them (Pierce and Sheppard). I’m sitting there like on lap 30 and I’m like I could use a caution to regroup…I was a little wore out from the heat. Definitely got the job done and that’s all that matters.” And if that weren’t good enough, the UMP Modifieds wrapped up the night with a spectacular feature. Dona Marcoullier, Jeff Babcock and Kevin Morehouse battled for the lead the last 21 laps of the 25-lap event. When the dust settled it was Newark, Ohio’s Morehouse who was in the Engine Pro Victory Lane. “I’m not used to these UMP tires. This is the first time I’ve ever been here and I love it. We’re used to the open tires but I can get used to these because we don’t have

Doug Drown recorded his fifth career win at Attica Raceway to have as many,” said Morehouse beside his Morehouse Logging, Sam’s Used Carsbacked #88. “I would like to thank Larry Reed and his wife, Tommy Patten, Gary Clark and his boy Davey.” Drown and Sheppard would bring the field to the green for the 40-lap late model feature with Drown gaining the advantage over Sheppard, Pierce , Devin Moran, Jon Henry and Jeep VanWormer. The first caution would fly on lap three when Matt Irey spun in turn four. When the green flew, Drown pulled away slightly from Sheppard who had his hands full with Pierce as Moran, Henry, VanWormer, Dustin Griffin and Jeff Babcock gave chase. Drown would continue to hold a two car length advantage as Sheppard and

Pierce raced each other hard for the runner-up spot. The caution would fly on lap 11 when Chris Ross and JR Gentry spun. Again Drown began to pull away slightly when the green reappeared as Sheppard and Pierce tried to stay close while Henry, Moran, Griffin, Ryan Missler, Babock and Rusty Schlenk gave chase. However, as Drown caught the rear of the field, his advantage quickly shrank as Sheppard and Pierce both closed. At the halfway point, Sheppard was racing to Drown’s inside in turns one and two to challenge with Pierce right on their rear bumper. The trio ran side by side and nose to tail over the next handful of laps, thrilling the large crowd. By lap 30, the leaders

were in heavy-lapped traffic and Drown made a gutsy move, splitting two lapped machines to maintain his lead. Pierce would drive into second on lap 31, but Sheppard would return the favor two laps later as they raced to Drown’s inside. With three laps to go you could throw a tissue over the top three of Drown, Sheppard and Pierce. Just as Sheppard threw a flier at Drown in turns three and four as they came to the line on lap 38, the caution flew for Ryan Missler who sat on the front stretch. On the ensuing restart with a clear track, Drown pinched Sheppard to the bottom when the green flew and then switched lines from top to bottom in turns one and two to block Sheppard’s advance. The move paid off as Drown drove away for the win over Sheppard, Pierce, Henry and Schlenk. In the 25-lap modified feature, Jeff Babcock and Collin Thirlby would pace the field to the green with Thirlby getting the advantage. The caution flew for debris after one lap was complete with the running order Thirlby, Babcock, Dona Marcoullier, Morehouse, Mark Anderson and last year’s Attica winner Taylor Cook. Disaster would strike for Thirlby as he lost the handle on his machine on lap three, spinning in turn one and handing the lead to Marcoullier with Babcock and Morehouse completing the top three. With Babock riding the outer rim and Marcoullier glued to the bottom, the duo raced side by side until the caution flew on lap six for a three car pile-up. When the green came back out, Marcoullier and Babcock resumed their tremendous battle with Morehouse now joining the fun. The final caution would fly on lap 11 for Cook and Nathan Loney who tangled in turn one. Marcoullier and Morehouse would continue their fight for the lead when the green reappeared and behind them was a fantastic battle for third involving Babcock, Anderson and 12th starter Brian Ruhlman. Morehouse would vault into the lead on lap 15 but Marcoullier wouldn’t give up and raced to his inside and actually regained the lead on lap 16. But Morehouse blasted back in front a lap later and the two raced side by side the next couple of laps. Behind them Babcock and Anders also raced side by side for third with Ruhlman moving into the top five. As the leaders hit traffic with five laps to go, Morehouse began pulling away from Marcoullier with Anderson taking third. Morehouse would drive to the win over Marcoullier, Anderson, Babcock and Ruhlman.

Genoa’s Lay defeats Gibsonburg’s Mintz in sprint race

By Brian Liskai Special to The Press

I knew this was coming eventually. I just tried and tried

Not to be outdone, the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints put on a fantastic race at Attica Speedway last weekend. For most of the season Genoa’s Brian Lay has served notice he was going to be a force to be reckoned with at Attica this season with numerous top five runs. He finally closed the deal Friday, storming from 15th starting spot to take the lead with a slider on Craig Mintz on a lap 24 restart and going on to score his first career 410 sprint car win on dirt. “I knew this was coming eventually. I just tried and tried…I’ve put my dues in. I’ve flipped, I’ve crashed, I’ve wrecked and I came back for more. Right now this is what it’s all about. It’s for the fans, it’s for more crew and it’s for my old man,” said an emotional Lay beside his Seagate Blasting/Local 85 Boilermakers/Fremont Floor Covering/Wood Court Collision/Gary Shumaker Fuel Transport/Black Berry Corners/ Kistler Racing Products/Dave Story Equipment Repair #45. “I pulled a Hail Mary…I pulled the wing all the way to the trunk and said go and I did,” said Lay of his winning strategy. “I knew I could get him (Craig Mintz) in one and two I just had to get a good restart. I said ‘it’s now or never’ and I told my guys that I gave people room before and I’m not giving it any more.” In the 30-lap sprint feature, Cole Duncan and Stuart Williams would lead the field to the green with Duncan getting the upper hand over fourth starter D.J. Foos, Williams, Bryan Sebetto and Shane Stewart. Sebetto would grab third the next lap with Stewart taking fourth a lap later. Foos began racing to Duncan’s inside to chal-

Brian Lay has his first career 410 sprint car win on dirt lenge for the lead on lap four as Stewart moved into third. Greg Wilson would come to a rest on lap four to bring out the caution. On the restart, Duncan and Foos resumed their battle up front with Stewart joining the fun while Craig Mintz and Byron Reed moved around Sebetto into the top five. The lead trio of Duncan, Foos and Stewart continued their exciting battle as they hit lapped traffic by

the 10th circuit, which allowed Stewart to take second. Meanwhile Lay, who started 15th, had worked his way up to seventh. Just as Stewart was challenging Duncan for the lead on lap 14, Chris Andrews would spin, bringing out the caution as Mintz took third. The restart order was Duncan, Stewart, Mintz, Foos, Lay and Reed. When the green reappeared, Mintz and Lay both drove around Stewart as

Duncan pulled away slightly. Mintz would close the game on Duncan on lap 17 as Lay steadily gained momentum. Mintz executed a perfect flier on Duncan for the lead on lap 18. With 10 laps to go, the leaders raced into lapped traffic again and Lay was racing under Duncan for second. With eight laps to go, the leaders were in heavy lapped traffic which Lay used to take second. The final caution would fly on lap 23 for a Rodney Hurst spin. On the restart, Lay shot to the bottom of turns one and two and slid up in front of Mintz to take the lead with Stewart rebounding to move into third. Lay began to pull away as Mintz battled Stewart for second with Duncan and Foos giving chase. Lay would get a little hung up behind a lapped car with two laps to go, but Mintz and Stewart couldn’t get close. Lay blasted to the checkers over Mintz, Stewart, Duncan and Foos.


Joni Meyer-Crothers with Beth Adelman

Household products solve garden problems By J.K. DePeal Garden Writer

As seen on


Tip for extreme Couponing Coupon maven Joni Meyer-Crothers, the Genoa area native who has been featured on the TLC show, “Extreme Couponing” is sharing her tips in a new book, “Extreme Couponing: Learn How to Be a Savvy Shopper and Save Money…One Coupon at a Time.” Meyer-Crothers lives in Sylvania with her husband and seven children (three biological, four adopted). Economizing became personal for Meyer-Crothers 20 years ago when she found herself as a single mother unable to feed her children. She began couponing five years ago when her second husband of 16 years lost his job in an automotive factory and they needed a way to stretch their dollars. In the book, Meyer-Crothers explains precisely how she has managed to save thousands by clipping coupons, using them wisely, and never paying full retail price for any product. She not only saves for her family, she regularly donates in bulk to charities and her garage at home serves as a food pantry for the needy through local charities. Earlier this year, Meyers-Crothers donated thousands of dollars’ worth of products to Hurricane Sandy victims. Among the tips Meyers-Crothers reveals: • Where to find the best coupons and how to organize them • Budgeting monthly expenses and the shocking amount of money that can be saved by couponing • Basic items you should never pay for (i.e. toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors and pasta) • Taking your first couponing sales trip • Seasonal sale cycles • Giving back: how to coupon for charity Meyer-Crothers co-authored the book with ghost writer Beth Adelman, who says she now uses tips she picked up from Meyer-Crothers — like saving coupons for when items go on sale, she said. She also started donating to a local food bank. The book, which lists for $15, is available in bookstores and at and online booksellers. Visit Meyer-Crothers online at www.,, and


July is here and the garden season is booming, but with all the buds, blooms and produce abounding, the garden problems are also beginning to crop up. Insect pests, diseases, and animal attacks are invading gardens everywhere and beautiful flowers and great vegetables that were so perfect one day can be quickly devastated the next. Luckily, the solution for many common garden problems may be in your bathroom or kitchen cupboard. So, now that the flowers are planted and the vegetables are growing, here are some low-cost, time-saving ways to use things you may already have around the house or yard to solve those pesky garden headaches. Banish harmful insects • Pour white vinegar on anthills. The vinegar will drive out the ants. • Mix 6 teaspoons of lemon juice with 2 cup of water in a spray bottle. Spray on plant leaves infested with aphids. The lemon will kill the aphids. (Try the spray on a small area of the plant first to make sure there is no damage to the plant.) • To repel insects from plants, put a tablespoon of dish soap in a trigger spray bottle and fill with water. Shake well and mist plants and soil. (Be sure and test it on a small area at first.) • To get rid of ants in the garden, sprinkle baking soda mixed with black pepper on the ant-infested areas around the plants. • Place aluminum foil on the ground between plants and secure it in place with rocks. In the sun the shiny foil will repel aphids, spider mites, squash vine borers, etc. • To kill earwigs, fill small saucers with vegetable oil and place around infested areas. The earwigs will crawl into the oil and drown. • To repel Japanese beetles, mix one bottle of baby oil with 3 tablespoons of garlic powder in a trigger spray bottle. Spray the bases of rose bushes, fruit trees and berry bushes. • Get rid of whiteflies by mixing equal parts of oil soap and water in a trigger spray bottle. Mist the affected plants. • Trap wasps by sprinkling the sticky side of con-tact paper with sugar. Hang the papers where the wasps are a problem. • An all-purpose insect repellant can be made from 4 garlic cloves chopped fine, one onion chopped fine, 1 tablespoon of dish soap and 1 quart of water. Mix all together and let set for 24 hrs. Strain and pour liquid into a spray bottle. Apply to infected plants. This spray is especially effective against insects in the vegetable garden. • To kill slugs on plants mix 1-1/2 cups of

Get Growing ammonia and 1-1/2 cups of water. Place mix in spray bottle and apply to areas where slugs are active. Keep animals out of your gardens • Keep squirrels from digging up your bulbs by sprinkling newly-planted areas with a mix of garlic powder and Epsom salts (1/2 cups of each). • To get rid of moles, toss moth balls into the mole runs and close up the ends of the tunnels. • Keep deer out of your garden by sprinkling the soil with a mixture of dill pickle juice, crushed garlic and garlic powder. Deer can’t stand the smell. (I can’t say I would blame them!) • Stir 2 uncooked eggs into a gallon of water. Spray the mix on plants to keep deer from chewing on them. • Dust the ground around plants with talcum or baby powder to keep the rabbits away. • Keep dogs out of your flower beds by sprinkling the soil around the flowers with red or black pepper. • A tent of chicken wire placed over young vegetable plants will keep the rabbits from eating them. • Grated orange, lemon, or grapefruit peel sprinkled on the soil in you flower beds will keep cats out. • Keep rabbits out of fruit beds by sprinkling around the bed with black or red pepper. • Repel cats by fertilizing trees, flowers and shrubs with coffee grounds or spraying around the plants with white vinegar. • Pour used cat litter into gopher or mole holes. The smell of cat will act as a repellant to these critters. • Mothballs scattered through a garden or flower bed will repel cats, rodents, and squirrels. Pep up those plants and blooms • Mix 4 tablespoons white vinegar with 2 quarts of water and use to water your azalea, rhododendron, and hydrangea plants. • Pour leftover, cooled coffee on geraniums. A few drops a week will result in lots of healthy blooms. • Put banana peels around the base of your rose bushes and cover with mulch. They encourage larger rose blooms. • Ailing plants can be revived by pouring a mix of 2 tablespoons pancake syrup in 1 quart of warm water around the base of the plant once a month. • Mix 4 tablespoons of Epsom salts in 1 gal-

lon of water. Apply 1 pint to the soil around tomato plants about once a week until they begin to set blooms. This will increase the number and size of the tomatoes. • Mix 2 tablespoons of molasses into a quart of warm water. Pour the mix into the soil around a sick plant. Do this once a month to revive the plant. • Put used tea bags on the soil at the base of plants. Cover with mulch. Whenever you water, the bags will release nutrients into the soil until they degrade. • Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to the soil around ferns and palms. It will provide nutrients that encourage healthy, luxuriant growth. • Mix 3-4 tablespoons Epsom salts to 1 gallon of water. Sprinkle this mix over pepper plants until the peppers set. This increases production. • Add 2 cups of beer to 4 cups of water and pour this on the soil around azaleas, shrubs and ornamental grasses. It will enrich the soil and encourage healthy growth. • Orange and grapefruit peels placed around the bases of rose bushes will increase the number and size of blooms. • Coffee grounds scratched into the soil around azaleas or rhododendrons add acid to the soil and keep it loose and moist. Knock out those weeds • Kill vines or creeping weeds with an application of 6 teaspoons of Borax in 1 quart of water. Spray directly on the weeds. • Pour boiling water on grass and weeds growing between the cracks in a sidewalk or between stepping stones. • White vinegar is a very effective weed killer. It can be sprayed directly on weeds using a pump spray bottle. • Sprinkle a mix of ground cloves and cinnamon around plants in moist, shady areas. The spices will fight mold, toadstools, and fungi. • White salt poured on weeds will kill them effectively. Use it on a dry, sunny day. • To fight diseases that attack the leaves and foliage of your plants, mix 2 tablespoons dish soap with 2 tablespoons baking soda. Mix with 2 gallons of water and spray on plant foliage. • Mix 3 tablespoons of vodka with 2 cups of water in a 16 ounce spray bottle. Spray weeds well. The mixture will dehydrate the weeds. • “Solarize” your weeds. Let the sun bake your weeds by covering them with clear plastic. Plastic wrap can be used on small areas. Wet the weeds well and cover with the plastic. Seal the edges with bricks or soil. Leave in place until the weeds are brown and shriveled. Want more gardening tips for healthy, productive gardening?

Michael, today is your 29th Birthday. You stayed only for 16 short years, 29 is an age you will never be... 16 years is all I had with you... As your Mom 16 years were not enough. I miss your beautiful smile, your laughter, your teasing and your pranks. I have memories of your love of music (I could always find you in the Clay High School band room), your passion for bicycling and our adventures. Being your Mom was the greatest part of my life. I will hold you in my heart until we are together again. I Love You, Mom

essage of the

The philosopher who composed Ecclesiastes advises us "Do not be over righteous, neither be over wise, why destroy yourself?" (Ecclesiastes 7:16) Accusing others of wrongdoing, especially when there is any chance that we might be mistaken, is almost always folly. But, there are times when it is appropriate to be assertive in calling someone out. When someone is mistreating us our "moral alarm bells" are usually loud and clear and we should speak up about it. It's even more important to stand up to bullies and haters when they are picking on someone who is weaker or too timid to stand up for him or

herself. Students at Ohio State University recently created web sites intended to "call out" people who posted racist, sexist, or otherwise hateful comments on social media websites. Courage is central to the moral life because it requires courage to speak up for what is right. But, we should remember also to be circumspect about our criticism. It is often easier to see the speck of dust in your neighbor's eye than the log in your own. "Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." John 7:24
