Mall violations On December 14, 2011, Woodville Mall Realty, the owner of the mall at the time, and Mehran Kohansieh, an officer, member, manager and owner of Woodville Mall Realty, were served with a Notice of Building Code Violations. On December 16, 2011, a complaint for temporary and permanent injunctive relief was filed against Woodville Mall Realty and others, including Kohansieh, in the court of common pleas. On June 7, 2012, a default judgment and permanent injunction were granted against Woodville Mall Realty and Kohansieh, as well as other defendants associated with the mall. The court noted in the default judgment that the city had established “by clear and convincing evidence” that the mall had moisture, mold and water damage throughout the building; the sprinkler system was non-functional in parts of the mall and may be inadequate in the event of fire; the owner had not paid for gas to heat the mall and that the pipes of the sprinkler system may freeze over the winter, causing further damage to the fire suppression system; the roof had failed leaving two large holes and

$70 grand raised for Parker’s Purpose By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer For 10 years, former Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel was arguably the most popular man in the state. From 2001-10, he compiled a 94-22 record, won the 2002 NCAA national championship, six Big Ten titles and was 9-1 against arch-rival Michigan while helping to restore the Buckeyes to college football supremacy. And two weeks ago, area residents got to see Tressel in action when he spoke at the Parker’s Purpose Dinner and Auction at Ole Zim’s Wagon Shed in Gibsonburg. Now the vice president of strategic engagement at the University of Akron, Tressel, 60, spoke for 45 minutes before a crowd that gathered to raise money “It’s really humbling to be here and I’m sure all of you feel the same way,” Tressel told the crowd. “Parker has touched everyone in this building. It’s so exciting to see what has been done thus far and to think about the goals that have been set for 2020.”

We’re at a crossroads as far as where we are as a foundation.

A hearing will be held on Thursday in the Wood County Court of Common Pleas on Northwood’s efforts to get the owners of the Woodville Mall to tear down the dilapidated structure. “The court has to decide that the mall is a nuisance, and that it’s a hazard to public health and safety,” said City Administrator Bob Anderson. “People are breaking in, there’s broken glass. It’s dangerous. We’re asking the court to grant us relief by ordering the owner to abate the nuisance. At this stage, it almost means demolishing it.” The city would not be satisfied if the mall were razed, with just a concrete slab and broken up asphalt remaining, similar to the former Southwyck Mall site, considered by many to be an eyesore since it was torn down on Reynolds Road in South Toledo. “There have been a couple of inquires about whether it would be good enough for the city if they just tear down the mall, leaving the slab and asphalt. The answer is `No.’” He hopes the property is redeveloped commercially or is landscaped as a green space or park. “Something other than acres and acres of asphalt that weeds grow through,” he said. The hearing will be held on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 9 a.m. at the court located in Bowling Green, said Anderson. The hearing is the city’s latest legal battle against the mall’s owners to get them to either correct county and state code violations, or tear the building down.

Tressel alluded to the foundation’s seven-year goal of raising $1-million. Although Tressel was the headline speaker, the real star was Parker Inks, who, at 13, has helped to start a foundation and advance a cause that seeks to help families all across the country. It started five years ago when Parker, who has muscular dystrophy, was lifeflighted to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Toledo because of respiratory problems. Parker’s stay lasted 30 days and he nearly lost his life on three occasions. Fortunately, Parker, a Fremont resident,

persevered and is now back to being his normally upbeat, positive self. It was at the insistence of his father, Craig, that Parker understand that he had work left to do, that he must live to inspire others and help make the world a better place. And so, Parker’s Purpose was born. The organization, which has helped donate over $100,000 to families in need since its foun-

A pay raise for teachers in the Lake School District comes with a slightly longer school day. The Lake Education Association and school board have come to agreement on a new three-year contract that includes pay raises and an extension of 15 minutes to the school day. According to Jeff Carpenter, district treasurer, teachers will receive base salary increases of 2.75 percent in 2014, 2.25 percent in 2015, and 1.95 percent in 2016. Tim Krugh, board president, said the teaching staff has endured a time of cost-cutting and the agreement is “fiscally sound.” “They have gone three years without an increase in the base salary and a complete freeze last year, along with insurance concessions,” he said. “We have struggled financially and they endured a painful Reduction in Force last year and helped us pass a new operating levy. We need to compensate our employees competitively and this represents a reasoned fiscally sound agreement.” He said the extra quarter of an hour to school days represents “a huge victory for the educational success of our kids.” Jim Witt, district superintendent, said the contract covers about 87 teachers. Michael Sibbersen, Wood County Auditor, recently announced the county’s real estate tax distribution for the second half of 2013. A total of $73.3 million was distributed, including $45.1 million for the county’s 18 school districts. Lake schools received approximately $3.8 million. Lake voters last August approved a 6.75-mill operating levy. At the time, Krugh attributed the support to several factors, including the board enacting about $1.5 million in spending cuts earlier in the year that resulted in more than 40 employees being let go; Walbridge Elementary School being closed, and the all-day, everyday kindergarten program reduced to part-time. “We made the cuts and let the public know we really had to pass a levy this year or we were looking at seven-figure deficits by the end of the year,” Krugh said after the levy passed, adding the cuts were to remain in place even though the levy passed.

Oregon bike trail connects two major parks A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the official opening of the new Oregon Parks Bike Trail on Wednesday. The paved connector will complete one of the area’s longest cycling and leisure trails and connect 4.9 miles of trails at Maumee Bay State Park with 3.3 miles of trails at Pearson. The eight mile trail will connect Fassett Junior High, Starr Elementary and Clay High schools with Pearson Metropark and Maumee Bay State Park. “I’m excited about this next step in enhancing the quality of life in Oregon,” Mayor Mike Seferian said Wednesday. “Even though the trail is just being completed, hundreds of our residents have already been out using it.” The trail is one of a few in the area that will provide a connection between two major parks. The trail will also provide users the opportunity to stop at local restaurants or businesses for an ice cream cone or a snack along the way. Eagles Nest Sweet Retreat ice cream shop at the corner of Seaman and South Stadium roads, and the Oregon Inn, a restaurant on Bay Shore Road, are among businesses along the trail, said Seferian. The city plans to install signage along the trail with mile markers and information about distances and connection to area parks, restaurants, and businesses. The city expects the use of the trail to continue to grow as Oregon residents and people from outside the area become more aware of it. Those who wish to drive to the trail can park at either Maumee Bay State Park or Pearson Park to access the path. A portion of the trail that runs through the administrative and athletic complex has been dedicated to former Mayor Leonard Wasserman, an active cyclist who participates in the city’s annual Bike to Work Day. The trail has been completed in phases over a 15 year period at a cost of $1.8 million. Approximately 80 percent of the funding came from state and federal sources with a local match. Additional trails Seferian said there have been discussions over the years to extend the trail further and connect to nearby communities, such as Toledo. “There was early talk when Toledo was thinking about a bike route along Front Street, to the Craig Memorial Bridge. But it would have to go through a real rural area in Oregon to get to that point, which would end up going over the Millard Avenue overpass and down Front Street. Depending on how grant funding goes, Toledo would have to extend so far to come towards Oregon, and Oregon would have to extend so far to go towards Toledo. But it has been mentioned.

possibilities. And we’ll be looking at other places in our city to expand what we have now,” said Seferian. Joining forces with other entities when applying for grants gives communities a better chance at scoring a grant, he added. “When you go for that 80-20 grant from the state, it’s better to link up with another

municipality,” he said. Also, as a part of the city’s current Bikeway Master Plan, the Public Service Department is planning to apply for future grant funding to purchase easements and install a bike path along Toledo Edison’s Transmission Towers, which are located half way between Coy and Lallendorf roads with a north-south alignment through the city, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman. Seferian said the city may be able to make a deal with Edison. “We might be able to work a deal with Edison because a path could provide them with easier access to those towers. It would be a plus for Edison. Right now, there is just a dirt path. Lighter duty vehicles could drive onto the bike path to service those towers. It would certainly be a lot more affordable than if we were just crossing some farmer’s field because it might disrupt his operation and impede his ability to use the farmland. But I can’t see Toledo Edison thinking a bike trail would do anything to disrupt their towers,” said Seferian. He credited Roman, the Toledo Metropolitan Council of Governments, Rodney Shultz, deputy city engineer, and the late Robert Breese, an engineer for the state of Ohio, for their efforts to make the trail a reality.

Northwood makes case Continued from front page numerous leaks in other parts of the roof; and water had caused damage to the floor in the mall, soaking the carpet and buckling the flooring in some sections, causing unsafe walking conditions. The court noted that the dilapidated conditions were in violation of several Wood County Health and Ohio Building codes. Since the owners failed to make repairs to comply with the codes, the court prohibited the defendants from allowing public access to the mall until the violations are corrected to the satisfaction of the Wood County Combined General Health District, the Wood County Building Inspection, and the Northwood Fire Department. On January 17, the city filed a complaint against the owners of the mall in the court of common pleas for nuisance abatement, and removal of the building. Named as defendants are Woodville Mall Realty Management, LLC; Kohansieh; Ohio Plaza Shopping Center, LLC, which purchased the mall from Woodville Mall Realty on December 27, 2012; Soleyman Ghalchi, an officer, member, manager and owner of Ohio Plaza; Woodville, LLC; and other defendants known as John Doe’s who may have a current or future interest in the mall. “To date, all violations…have not been corrected to the satisfaction of the Wood County Combined General Health District, the Wood County Building Inspection, and the Northwood Fire Department,” states the complaint. Prior to buying the mall on Dec. 27, 2012, Ohio Plaza and Ghalchi had “constructive and/or actual notice and knowledge of the public record of the Woodville Mall case, including the June 7, 2012 Default Judgment Entry and the permanent injunction ordered by the court,” states the complaint.

$70 grand raised for Parker’s Purpose Continued from front page dation, has this mission statement, “As individuals of Parker’s Purpose, we commit as part of our team to provide the highest level of service to individuals or groups in need. We will perform our service with integrity and respect to all individuals or groups and also hope to foster a positive self-worth and self-esteem to the individual.” Rossford football coach Todd Drusback, 40, got to know Parker and his family during his time as coach at Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic and became the president of the organization. He said with Tressel on board, the event was a huge success. “It went really well,” said Drusback, who noted that, before expenses were taken into account, roughly $70,000 was raised during the dinner. “It was by far the best turnout as far as attendance and money that we made. We’ve progressed as a foundation and more people are aware of us and of course because Coach Tressel was there. He was fantastic as far as his speech and being accommodating and talking to people. We had over 400 people in there.” Drusback said the organization is hoping that it can take the next step in terms of raising awareness about the cause and increasing donations. “We’re at a crossroads as far as where we are as a foundation,” said Drusback. “We’re talking with some philanthropic organizations as far as strategy and what needs to be done to take it to the next step. We’re doing different networking things and getting the right people to buy in and support us. There are a lot of great non-profits out there (and) we are talking to those different groups out there. We need different things throughout the year to provide us with that income. We can’t do major events like this 3-4 times per year.” The next fundraising event takes place on September 28 when the Baumann Auto Group hosts its 11th Annual Big Charity Raffle, an event where 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Parker’s Purpose. In addition to Tressel’s speech, there was a dinner, auction and presentation put on by the organization. “We presented a family with a check and we have a slideshow and a memo-

(Photo courtesy of Todd Drusback) ry wreath that details families that we’ve helped while acknowledging the people who have passed away,” Drusback said. “Kerry Keller’s family was there and Kieran Brogan, who passed away from cancer, his grandmother spoke. It’s definitely a pretty emotional evening. We want people to know where their money is going. We want to put a face behind where the money is going towards.” Kerry, who passed away at the age of 17 in April of last year, played for Drusback at Rossford before succumbing to cancer.

Throughout his ordeal with cancer, Kerry inspired many in Northwest Ohio with his cheerful, upbeat attitude. Drusback’s coaching and Kerry’s legacy helped to rebuild Rossford’s football program, one that went from 0-10 to 1-9 to 6-4 in the last three seasons. “You get one shot at this deal,” Drusback said. “What you put into (life) is what you get out of it. When it’s gone, it’s gone, you can’t get it back. Some get it and envision it and think about their legacy and then some get older and have regrets.”

Board OKs sale of Carroll Elementary School By Cynthia Jacoby Special to The Press The shuttered Carroll Elementary School building could have a new owner soon. The Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education last week approved the sale of the building for $15,500 to the Carroll Township trustees, according to Tim Coffman, district treasurer. The school district opted to close the building along with Graytown Elementary in 2011 after voters turned down a new 3.9mill levy. The defeat forced the consolidation of the district’s remaining buildings, a reduction in bus routes and other cuts. According to the Ohio Revised Code, school board members had two options regarding the aging building, Coffman said. They could sell it to another government entity or they could put it up for auction. There was no tax duplicate estimated value on the

property. Coffman said since the property is tax free the auditor’s office didn’t set a value on it. Talks began with Carroll Township trustees because of its proximity to other township property. Carroll Elementary, a 24,000-square foot building that housed prekindergarten through fifth grade, is located on State Route 19, directly across from the township complex that houses the police station and community hall. Coffman said he is not sure what the township intends to do with the building or when the township trustees will put the purchase agreement up for a vote. Township officials were not available for comment. An environmental review of the school property is being planned and the township is working with the Ottawa Regional Planning Commission and county commissioners to complete the study. Ottawa County oversees Environmental Protection Agency grants amounting

to $400,000 available for various types of reviews, said Joe Gerber, planning commission director. The grant distribution is broken down into two fields - $200,000 for petroleum sites and $200,000 for hazardous substances. This summer, commissioners approved $4,500 from that grant fund for the school property study. “It’s a very basic assessment undertaken with the grant money to determine if they are any issues with the buildings or grounds,” commissioner Jim Sass said. The review, which could take a couple of months, is being conducted by Soil and Material Engineers, the county’s consultant for the federal grant, Gerber said. “Often when a property is changing hands, buyers just want to make sure there is nothing wrong with the property,” Gerber said. With the building sale in the works, the board of education has moved ahead

in keeping its financial house in order and unanimously approved two renewal levies for the November ballot. Together, the five-year, 3.9-mill operating levy and the five-year 1.2-mill permanent improvement levy bring in about $1.4 million annually for the school district, Coffman said. The permanent improvement levy costs the owner of a $100,000 home about $12 a year. The operating levy costs the same homeowner about $93 a year. Operating levies can be used for dayto-day expenses such as salaries and employee benefits, he explained. Improvement levy monies go toward projects such as textbooks, technology, and parking lot and building roof repairs. Voters first approved the 3.9-mill levy in 2000, the treasurer said. “That was the last new levy we had,” Coffman noted.

B-C-S financial situation improves from spending cuts By Larry Limpf News Editor Officials of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District point to cost-cutting measures for getting through the fiscal year without having to tap into cash reserves – the first time in five years the Ottawa County district didn’t have to tap into reserves to balance the budget. Calling it a “long, painstaking task” to cut costs, the school board and administration reduced expenses by almost 12 percent over the course of one year to help end deficit spending. “While it is certainly great to have eliminated deficit spending this past year, it is a trend we would like to see continued and we will work very hard to try and make it happen,” said Tim Coffman, district treasurer. The austerity measures and lower stu-

dent enrollment resulted in major changes for the district. It started the 2012-13 school year with 40 fewer teaching and non-teaching positions and has completed a plan for consolidating classes at Graytown, Carroll, and Rocky Ridge schools into the RC Waters School that was reconfigured to house kindergarten through the eighth grade. Fourth grade classes are being held at the middle school and eighth graders were placed in a wing of the high school. The moves required different starting times for the buildings and bus routes were reconfigured into single routes from double routes used in the past, which also saved operating revenues. Guy Parmigian, district superintendent, credited the staff and parents of students for enabling the changes. “The strength and resiliency of all B-CS staff, and putting students first, have made the 2012-2013 transition school year a suc-

cess for the school district,” he said. Coffman describes the district’s revenue streams as “relatively stagnant” and Parmigian said the administration has adopted a zero-sum approach to the district’s finances so that, where possible, any new expense is offset by a spending reduction somewhere else. According to the district’s June financial statement, it incurred general fund expenses for the last fiscal year of about $17.1 million – about $2.1 million or 11 percent less than the previous fiscal year. General fund revenues for the last fiscal year were $17.9 million – about $90,000 less than the previous fiscal year. The district reduced its spending on salaries and benefits by about 21.6 percent in the 2012-13 fiscal year from the year before. The district is challenging FirstEnergy’s appeal to the county board of revision to

have the property tax valuation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station lowered by about $22 million. Jennifer Young, a spokesperson for FirstEnergy, said the company decided to appeal the valuation after the county completed its property reassessment in 2012. She said some buildings and structures at the power station outside Oak Harbor should be listed as tax exempt. A reduction of $22 million in valuation would translate into a revenue loss of about $210,000 a year for the district. It would take an increase of about 1.1 mills in property taxes to recoup that loss, Coffman said. The school board filed a counter complaint in May with the board of revision, he said. A 3.9-mill levy to fund district operations expires at the end of this year. It generates about $1.2 million annually.


Books 4 Buddies Free books, snacks and school supplies will be given out by Books 4 Buddies to families of the Birmingham Terrace housing complex in Toledo at a gathering Saturday, Aug. 10 from 1-3 p.m. The free event will be held in the open grassy outdoor area across from the complex’s Community Room, 2100 Consaul St. Founded in 2012, Books 4 Buddies provides books to young people who might not otherwise get them, and inspires reading through the encouragement of peer ambassadors – Toledo-area high school and middle school students who help collect and distribute donated books. The program targets youths, especially disadvantaged males, up to 18 years of age in Toledo and Northwest Ohio. Last year, Books 4 Buddies collected more than 10,000 books.

Forgetful thief A North Baltimore woman’s forgetfulness has her facing a felony charge of theft and criminal trespassing. Kara L. Rose, 21, was charged July 26 by Lake Township police after she reportedly entered a room at the Super 8 Motel and took a wallet containing cash and credit cards. She left the room to a waiting vehicle but left behind her own purse which contained her identification, police said.

Saturday’s highlights include a flea market, craft sale, kids’ games, bingo, 50/50 raffles and food and beer.

A state regulator has postponed a vote that could determine whether or not FirstEnergy customers will receive millions of dollars in rebates of renewable energy credit overcharges. The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio had been scheduled to hear the case July 31 but delayed it until Aug. 7. The delay was needed to “fine tune” an order that will decide if FirstEnergy overpaid for renewable energy credits and passed the overcharges on to customers, PUCO Chairman Todd Snitchler told the Associated Press. The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates the overpayments could total as much as $96 million to $126 million. American Electric Power – Ohio, a competitor of FirstEnergy, the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel and several environmental organizations are intervening in the case, arguing that FirstEnergy inflated the value of renewable energy credits it sold in the electric market. “By putting off the decision to vote on this case today (July 31), the PUCO is putting the interests of one utility before the

interests of hundreds of thousand of electric customers who potentially paid way more on their utility bill than they should have,” said Brian Kaiser, Director of Green Jobs & Innovation for the Ohio Environmental Council. He said portions of audit reports compiled by PUCO staff who investigated the overpayment case were blocked from the public and consumer advocates when FirstEnergy claimed dollar amounts that were paid are confidential. In 2008, Ohio enacted legislation that restructures the advanced energy and renewable energy generation and procurement requirements for the state’s electric distribution utilities and electric service companies - except municipal utilities and electric cooperatives. Under the new standard, utilities must provide 25 percent of their retail electricity supply from alternative energy resources by 2025, with specific annual benchmarks for renewable and solar energy resources The annual benchmark obligations may be met through the purchase of qualified renewable energy credits, which are defined as the environmental benefits associated with one megawatt hour of electricity generated by a renewable energy resource.

Will Detroit’s future depend on the kindness of strangers?

Guns in church? To the editor: A bill has recently been introduced to the Ohio General Assembly by State Rep. Ron Maag, (R-Lebanon) to allow concealed carrying in churches. Before we as a state can form an opinion on this issue, we must look at all the facts surrounding the bill. First, let’s take a look at the shooting in the movie theatre inside Aurora, Colo. As is with most businesses, there was and still is a sign proclaiming that firearms are not allowed within the facility. Did this sign or any law passed by either the Colorado government or the U.S. government stop James Eagan Holmes from entering the theatre on that night and killing 12 people while injuring 70 others? The answer is a simple no. Let’s also examine the temple shooting in Wisconsin. In August of 2012, Wade Michael Page killed six people and injured four others. Did the sign outside the Sikh temple telling people not to bring a gun into the facility stop the shooter from going in and forever altering 10 families’ lives? Yet again we stumble across the answer – no. The point I’m trying to make is that if a criminal wants to bring a gun into an area and cause harm to others, they will. No sign posted anywhere in a building will defend the people inside of a building. Rep. Maag understands this. The issue at hand on whether to allow guns in churches is not an issue of what political party someone belongs to. Instead, it is an issue of safety. It’s an issue of keeping people safe. We as a state must understand that times are changing. No place is as safe as it was 15 or even 10 years ago. We must get this issue passed, so people can feel safer within their place of worship. Byron Swartz Millbury

Making a difference To the editor: Through the generous

Guest Editorial using. Detroit now owes nearly $20 billion to 100,000 creditors, mostly banks and pension funds, yet is unable to even keep up with current expenses. It has long since cut services to the bone, with many city offices manned by a skeleton staff. It hasn’t been enough. The average response time to a 911 call (in a city with one of the highest murder rates in the nation) is so long that many residents have given up using it altogether. Confronted with an emergency (like a heart attack for example), they simply deal with it on their own. It’s what happens when virtually all of the people with any resources whatsoever decide to abandon a city en masse. That’s what’s happened in Detroit. They used to call it “white flight,” but since black people with the option to leave bolted too, it’s more like “middle-class flight.”


Detroit had many problems, but the chief one was that it was a one-industry town. It made cars. When that industry, unable to keep up with foreign competition, began to leak jobs and the leaks eventually became a flood, Detroit’s vitality ebbed away. Then there was the problem of race. The city was always a racial tinderbox (it’s been the scene of three major race riots in the past 150 years), but the riot of 1967 was particularly ill-timed and destructive. It turbo-charged the ongoing middle-class flight. Before you knew it, a city built to accommodate nearly two million people had only 700,000 inhabitants rattling around, many of them destitute or close to it. Moreover, as much as two-thirds of the tax revenue being brought in by its reasonably prosperous downtown area was being sucked up by pension payments to retired government workers. That’s the way you get to be Detroit. Czar Orr wants to solve the city’s problems by making its creditors take a haircut that amounts to a scalping, settling debts for as little as 10 cents on the dollar. Some of the creditors want the city to first sell its assets, which include the multi-

A big thank you to the Jet Express for donating round trip tickets to our volunteers ringing at Put-in-Bay. Catawba Moorings, through Dockers with Donations, once again, has stepped up to the plate in assisting our local Salvation Army.

The only sure result is that armies of lawyers will make bales of money. The federal government says it will not bail out the city. The state won’t either. Understandable, perhaps, but tragic. A hundred billion dollars for Iraq, but not one red cent for Detroit. That’s our motto. The city, it seems, will be left dependent on the kindness of strangers. That didn’t work out well for Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire. I don’t expect it will help Detroit either.

“ “

By Donald Kaul The other shoe finally dropped in Detroit. The once-proud city — variously known as “Motown,” “the Arsenal of Democracy,” and “the City of Champions” — filed for bankruptcy. Detroit’s the largest American city ever to do this, and it’s been coming for a long time. Detroit’s been a mess for decades, but that shouldn’t blind us to how astonishing the event is. How does a city that was once the nation’s fourth-largest go bankrupt? How does a city that was the first to make “working class” a synonym for “middle class” become the equivalent of homeless? In other words, how does a city go bankrupt? It’s a city, for crying out loud. It can’t go sleep under a bridge. Yet that’s where it finds itself. Some of its wounds are self-inflicted, largely by the long string of incompetent and corrupt politicians its voters kept electing. No one elected the man who filed for the bankruptcy, however. He is Kevyn Orr, the well-regarded bankruptcy attorney Governor Rick Snyder made emergency manager of the city. The state legislature bestowed czar-like powers on him, which he’s clearly

Eagle athlete Brooke Gyori starring on the beach, too By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like Brooke Gyori has a lot of free time. The Clay High School junior runs cross country and plays on the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball team in the fall, plays basketball in the winter and plays outfield for the softball team in the spring. Her summers are spent playing for and practicing with the Premier Volleyball Club, based in Maumee. Premier sends teams to play travel volleyball as well as compete in local and national tournaments. This marks the second summer that Premier has offered two-man beach volleyball, and Gyori, 16, who has been playing indoor volleyball since she was 5, decided to give playing the sport in sand a shot back in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of different things you do (in beach volleyball), like the shots you take,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do certain things. Sand (isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) hard, and you have to adjust. Beach volleyball will really help with my indoor game. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting stronger when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving around in the sand.â&#x20AC;? Whereas indoor team volleyball consists of six players, beach volleyball is just you and one other teammate. Perhaps youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of Olympic champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You really have to communicate,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to talk to each other so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go for the same balls. Indoors, you know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going for. Beach volleyball is really fun; I really enjoy it. I used to play down at the docks (downtown) for fun. Premier started it last year and this year I thought it would be fun.â&#x20AC;? Premier pairs up individual club members to compete, and Gyori got paired with Abby King, 16, a student at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Mich. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One tournament she and I were paired together and worked really well together,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and they just kept pairing us together. We really got along well and communicated well and had fun. We played in a couple tournaments together, kind of towards the middle of the season in midJune. I was surprised (at our success) a little bit, but at the same time we jelled together.â&#x20AC;? Gyori and King teamed to take second place at a USA Midwest Regional Tournament in Mason, Ohio, then embarked on an even bigger task late last month. They competed in the USA Junior Beach Tour Championships in Milwaukee on July 27-28 and came home with second place medals in the 16 Club gold bracket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we had a really good chance,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off a little rough the the first day and then we got into it. The first day, we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t winning by a lot. By the second day, in the morning, we really started beating up on these teams.â&#x20AC;? In the finals, Gyori and King won the first game, 21-13, but they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to close out the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The second game the other team started to get better ball control and we had to move around our shots,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were ahead by about 10 points and we started coming back, but it was already too late. We lost that one and we lost the third game. I was happy with what we got. We worked for that. I never even thought we would come this far.â&#x20AC;? Gyori said the tournament in Mason helped her and King prepare for the big tournament in Wisconsin the following week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a pretty big tournament, like 40 teams there,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got to see and try new things, like blocking. We worked on our weaknesses.â&#x20AC;? She added that playing beach volleyball will be an asset when she takes the court indoors this fall for the Eagles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help me,â&#x20AC;? Gyori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My communication is a lot better. Indoors, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more quiet and now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting louder and I have more energy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably (play beach volleyball) the next two years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really fun and you get to meet new people.â&#x20AC;?

Visitors sure to spy plenty of fun at Pemberville Fair By Tammy Walro Press Entertainment Editor National Security Agency contractorturned-leaker Edward Snowden likely won’t be attending the Pemberville Free Fair Aug. 14-17, as he is currently “visiting” Russia for an extended stay. But in keeping with all the “spy talk” that’s been in the news lately, and playing off the name of the fun game many played as kids, the theme for this year’s fair is “I Spy... Fun.” With food, games, a variety of traditional fair competitions, entertainment and rides, there is plenty of fun to be uncovered at the popular annual fair. And the best part is admission remains free. The 2013 grand stand stage entertainment opens Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 6:30 p.m. with “I Want Animal Magic,” an exotic animal and magic show. From 8 to 9:30 p.m., Lynn Trefzger, a ventriloquist who brings a trunk full of comical characters to life, will perform. Wrapping up main stage entertainment Aug. 14, the audience will hear young rising talent Connor Rose, a 16-year-old country singer and guitarist who has released his first EP completed title, “The End of Tonight.” Connor has opened for “Lone Star” and performed in a variety of venues, including The General Jackson Showboat in Nashville. On Thursday, Aug. 15, The Stickers, a Western Pennsylvania band with three brothers, four country chart hits in Europe and five in the U.S. will perform at 9 p.m. The band has appeared nationally with national artists like Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, Justin Moore, Uncle Kracker, Travis Tritt, Clint Black and more.

Woodville shop brings local artisans together

Help Wanted Discover the road to success New job opportunities each week in The Press Classifieds

By Tammy Walro Press Staff Writer Anita Grieger believes that people want to support their neighbors and communities by shopping locally. An avid shopper herself, the Oak Harbor woman and her friends have been known to take a weekend and just go shopping at the region’s many unique craft, antique and novelty shops – sometimes browsing and selecting purchases until the shop owners are ready to close the doors. After retiring from a career in nursing, she was in a consignment shop in Elmore and had a chance meeting with an old friend, Deb Yeagle, who shared a love for the arts and handcrafting Grieger started sewing and crafting when she was 11 years old; Yeagle, a retired teacher, owns an Alpaca farm and also has a creative side, creating paintings, sculpture, hand thrown pottery and fiber arts. The women knew each other years ago when their children were in Child Conservation League together. After reconnecting, the pair caught up and began talking about how great it would be to have a little shop where artisans could showcase their talents and sell their works, and where shoppers can come to while away the time and maybe go home with a treasure or two. “She was the moving force – setting the wheels in motion,” Grieger said. “I’m definitely the more timid one.” “We looked and looked and looked for different shops,” Grieger said. “When we saw this building in Woodville, we fell in love with it,” she said. The new owners bought the building and immediately set out to lighten and brighten the dingy gray interior to create the perfect atmosphere browsers who want to take their time to meticulously scan the various rooms that house treasures in just about every nook and cranny. Novelties and Nostalgia opened the doors in May 2012, operating on the consignment principle. Crafters and artisans sign on as co-op members. There are different options for membership, including joining for the year, or signing on monthly. “We take 10 percent for advertising and if they don’t want to pay that fee, they can work in the shop two days a month,” Grieger said. “We also have a 65/35 percent consignment options for consigners who want to sell four items or less. “I knew there was a great deal of local talent in this area, but I was worried they wouldn’t hear about us, or wouldn’t sign up,” she said. “But we’ve been growing, as far as members, since we’ve opened” Recently, Yeagle moved on to pursue other interests and now Grieger is the sole owner. “Actually, it’s not my shop, it’s the members’ shop and each and every one of them helps make it special. Novelties and Nostalgia prides itself on having something for everyone – from those on a budget, to young shoppers and even guys who may be find themselves there on the arms of their better halves. The shop’s rooms are filled with antiques and collectibles, baby and children’s items, baked goods, baskets, handmade clothing, felted items, unique garden art, goat’s milk soap and bath products, handmade greeting cards, hand-painted lighted wine bottles and glassware, pottery, primitives, purses and bags, shabby chic décor, painted furniture, watercolors, welded art, wreaths and more. A full list of crafters, confectionaries and tea makers who are co-op members, along with photos of their works are available on the shop’s website. “What’s nice is that, because they’re local, our members are willing and able to customize their works at a customer’s request,” she said. “I find that they also offer extremely high quality pieces at very affordable prices,” she said, adding that the shop also offers layaway for those “must haves” that don’t fit into the budget just now. Ten percent is required up front, and items must be paid off in two months. “For special circumstances and items over $250, we will extend the time as long as monthly payments are made,” Grieger added. In addition to being a Mecca for shoppers, Novelties and Nostalgia also offers themed tea parties for up to about 14 people. Upcoming teas include a Gem of a Tea Party featuring guest speaker Holly Heise, an avid collector of unusual gems, Aug.

Twelve area athletes compete at all-star game

Fremont Hall begins new membership drive

By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer Tweleve area athletes competed in the 23rd annual Northwest Ohio Regional AllStar Football Game at Steinecker Stadium in Perrysburg. The game is one final hurrah for a number of the top area football players who are not going to be playing at the collegiate level — a last chance to experience the thrill of playing on Friday night under the lights. For those who are fortunate to be playing in college, the game is a time to reflect on their high school careers while engaging in a tune-up before moving onto another stage. A total of 76 players competed in the game, with 38 on each team. The Gold Team, which won, 21-8, had three players from Eastwood (defensive backs Blake Kohring and Skylar Dierker and offensive lineman Adam Wolf) two from Waite (running back Cyrron Barringer and wide receiver/defensive lineman Charles Smith) and center Nick Keller of Genoa. The Black Team had six, including three from Lake (defensive back Chris Salaz, wide receiver/defensive back Ben Swartz, offensive lineman Jacob Hankish), two from Woodmore (wide receiver Zach Brossia and defensive lineman Jake Rothert) and center Zane Troknya of Oak Harbor. Troknya is set to play football this fall at Notre Dame College, located just outside of Cleveland. The Black Team, which took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter before giving up 21 unanswered points, failed to score late after driving into the red zone in an attempt to make a rally. The game was called with 2:57 remaining due to lightning. Barringer, who will be playing for Defiance College this fall, finished with a gamehigh five catches for 35 yards and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 10-yard reception from Toledo Christian’s Josh Winzeler midway through the second quarter. The real key for Gold, however, was the play of its defense, which forced six turnovers, four of which came in the first half. Troknya, who earned first team Sandusky Bay Conference honors for his play last season, spoke about the camaraderie the team built in the lead-up to the game. “It was awesome,” Troknya said. “I wasn’t sure how it’d go playing with kids I don’t really know. But we got along really well and bonded right off the get go, so that made everything a lot easier and practice went a lot faster. It was nice getting to know all the talented athletes from the area.” According to Troknya, because the team had some of the area’s most finelytuned athletes, practices had more to do with memorizing plays and understanding assignments.

By Brian Liskai Special to The Press The Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame has opened up its 2013-14 membership drive. Race fans can become voting members of the Hall of Fame by becoming a member. The one-year membership fee is a minimum donation of $20 – some members have volunteered to donate more to help the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame with its expenses. Located on the grounds of the historic Sandusky County Fairgrounds, the Hall of Fame building sits along the midway of Fremont Speedway which has hosted racing on the dirt oval since 1951. The Hall of Fame building houses thousands of artifacts and racing memorabilia like driver uniforms, helmets, trophies, photos and vintage race machines. Each year a class of inductees are honored prior to racing in June. There have been five classes of inductees into the Hall of Fame. Members are also asked to submit names of people they feel deserve to be inducted into the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame. You can sign up to become a member during any racing event at Fremont Speedway or contact Randy Mapus at or Brian Liskai at

Gold Squad defensive back Skylar Dierker (19), from Eastwood, leaps into the air to break up a pass during the 23rd annual Northwest Ohio Regional All-Star Football Game, presented by the Perrysburg Athletic Boosters, played at Steinecker Stadium in Perrysburg. (Press photo by Scott Grau) “A lot of practice was mental,” he said. “We talked a lot about plays and assignments.” The game featured a week of practices, a few cookouts and a guest speaker, Tim Hinton, Ohio State’s tight ends and fullbacks coach. Hinton, 51, a native of Amanda, a town located 30 miles southeast of Columbus, previously coached at Notre Dame (South Bend, Ind.) and Cincinnati and was a graduate assistant at Ohio State with Urban Meyer in 1986. He also coached three different times at the high-school level, heading up the programs at Zane Trace (1987-88) in Chillicothe, Van Wert (1989) and Marion Harding (1993-03). While at Harding, Hinton led the Presidents to five conference titles and five playoff appearances and was the 1995 Ohio Division I Co-Coach of the Year. He encouraged the players to be aggres-

sive in the future and to live a life that would not have them regretting past decisions. “You’re leaving high school and you’re moving on,” Hinton said. “You have a lot of journeys you will take on; life is going to have challenges. It’s OK to experience some things. It’s OK to fall off a bike and get a bloody knee. You have to get back on the bike and go again. “Don’t look back at something you did and say, ‘What if? What if I had worked really hard? Don’t be the ‘what if’ guy. Don’t put yourself in that situation.”

Press Sports Editor Northwood, which has won nine of the last 12 Toledo Area Athletic Conference football titles, has been picked to defend last year’s championship. But the vote by the eight TAAC coaches was close. Northwood had five first place votes in garnering 15 points, while Gibsonburg had two first place votes in getting 16 points. Following, in order, is Edon (24 points, one first place vote), Toledo Christian (30), Ottawa Hills (40), Cardinal Stritch Catholic (52), Hilltop (55), and Danbury (58). Northwood will also be seeking its ninth playoff berth in school history, but the Rangers have only one postseason victory against eight losses. However, veteran coach Ken James says he will only have three starters back on offense and four on defense after 19 seniors graduated. Last year’s seniors were part of the football program’s best four-year run in school history — 33-11 overall, four playoff appearances and three TAAC titles. And 2012 was the best season of them all. The team went 10-1, won its second straight TAAC title and won eight of its games by at least 30 points. The Rangers averaged over 47 points per game and finished with 4,085 yards of total offense, including 2,971 yards rushing. On top of that, 13 players earned first-team all-league status. This year, James expects to have six seniors returning, including five with considerable varsity experience. There are 13 juniors on the team, including eight with considerable playing time, and he expects 45 to 50 players to show up for practice Monday. “We are a work in progress,” James said. “We have some kids who have the ability but don’t know what’s going on. We’re not going to throw a lot. Our quarterback candidates are at about 5-foot-8, 5-9, so we don’t have someone who can drop back and throw over pass defenders.” James said he will continue implementation of the standard wishbone offense. Teams they will participate in scrimmages with are Lima Central Catholic, Sidney, Minster, Elmwood, Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic, Otsego, and Leipsic. The Rangers open the season at Ayersville, then host neighborhood rival Lake, and then play Woodward at Waite’s Mollenkopf Stadium. Fourth-year Gibsonburg coach Steve Reser says he will have eight starters returning on each side of the ball. He expects to have six seniors, including five who played considerably on varsity last year, along with 13 juniors, 13 sophomores, and 6 to 12 freshman. The Golden Bears will return quarterback Matt Tille and the speedy Isaih Arriaga returns at receiver and defensive back. Reser will employ a spread offense and 42-5 defense. “Our strength is at our skilled positions, but it’s going to be a challenge putting a line together,” Reser said. Gibsonburg, which hosted the coaches’ meeting Tuesday morning, opens at Elmwood, then hosts Lakota, and finishes non-league play by traveling to Fremont St. Joseph on a Saturday night. The Golden Bears scrimmage Hopewell-Loudon and Woodmore. Cardinal Stritch is lead by first-year head coach Brian Wical, who leaves the coaching staff at Lima Central Catholic.

The Cardinals will employ a wingedT offense with a shotgun formation used at times, passing about 40 percent of the time. They will use a 3-5-3 on defense. Wical is expecting four seniors, 10 juniors, 15 sophomores, and 4-5 freshman to join the team this year. He says about every junior will get varsity experience and so will eight sophomores. All of Stritch’s home games this season are scheduled for Friday nights on Ted Federici Field at Clay’s Memorial Stadium. Their first three opponents are Woodward, Woodmore, and Lakota. The Cardinals have scrimmages set up with Elmwood, Holgate, Arcadia, and Delta.

The OHSAA’s football postseason field expands

to seven divisions this fall after having six divisions from 1994-2012. Eight qualifiers in each region (four regions per division) will earn playoff berths, except in Division I, where there are only two regions and thus there will be 16 regional qualifiers.

Owens Community College has been named the 2012-13 Ohio Community College Athletic Conference All-Sports Award champion. The Express captured a share of or outright championships in four sports (men’s soccer, women’s volleyball, women’s basketball and men’s golf), while they finished second in two other sports (men’s basketball and softball). The Express baseball team finished fourth. The Express women’s soccer team went 2-0 against OCCAC foe Cincinnati State, but there are only two schools in the OCCAC that compete in women’s soccer. Therefore, the sport is not eligible for OCCAC awards or championships. The Express women’s soccer team did, however, capture first place in the Region XII regular season standings. Cincinnati State finished second in the All-Sports Award standings, while Columbus State finished third. The 2013-14 Express athletics year kicked off last Friday with the beginning of fall practice.

’Cat golfers challenged to win fourth straight title By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer

He and Devin are going to have to do a lot of talking with the other kids coming in...

Pretty much everyone made Woodmore’s boys golf team the overwhelming pick to defend its Northern Buckeye Conference championship in 2012. Coach Steve Burner’s team did just that, winning its third straight league title if you count the Suburban Lakes League championship it won in 2010. The Wildcats, however, graduated four of their top golfers from a year ago and will field a young and inexperienced lineup this fall. “I’ve had two real good golfers (the last four years),” Burner said. “Now it’s a matter of how my seniors respond when we get going. Playing jayvee and varsity are two different things. Hopefully they respond real quick. If they do, we should be right up there in the thick of it. All I’ll tell them is, we can do it but we have to work at it.” Gone from last year’s team are NBC Player of the Year runner-up Ty Burner, who is now playing at the University of Tiffin, and Mikayla Baer, a girls state tournament veteran who will golf at Bowling Green State University. Woodmore also must look for replacements for the graduated Matt Zatko, who is going to Ohio State and may try to play golf, and Paul Makulinski, who will play at Lourdes College. Burner, Baer, Zatko and sophomore Alex Gedert all earned firstteam All-NBC honors last season. Zatko finished third in the conference player of the year standings. Senior Devin Fisher, who earned second-team All-NBC honors last year, will

Woodmore golfer Devin Fisher at one of last year's Northern Buckeye Conference shootouts. (Press file photo by Dean Utendorf/ lead the ‘Cats into their season-opening tournament Aug. 12 in Clyde. “Devin has been playing lot of the big tournaments,” coach Burner said. “He just had a big one at Purdue University. He has

been out and about and doing pretty well. He has placed second in a couple tournaments around the area. As far as the mental aspect of it and the maturity level, I think he’s going to be much better. He’s going to have to be. He’s going to have to be my leader this year. He’s the one who’s been with me the longest.” Gedert, now a junior, has won three Lake Erie Junior Golf Association tournaments this summer, according to Burner, and will also be counted on for leadership and low scoring. “Alex has been playing really well this summer,” Burner said. “He’s been steady, shooting in the 70s. He and Devin are going to have to do a lot of talking with the other kids coming in who have played JV about playing a varsity match.” Two seniors, Matt Hartford and Connor Witt, have played on Woodmore’s JV squad for three years and will step up to the varsity level. “I’m expecting big things out of Matt,” Burner said. “I’m looking for him to jump

up on the varsity level. Connor doesn’t really play in tournaments in the summer, but he and Matt play on local courses in the offseason.” Jake Greenhill, a junior, has played on the JV team the last two years and should be ready to make the jump to the varsity, Burner said. “Now, it’s his time,” the coach said, adding that sophomore Miles DeStazio has potential. “He didn’t start on our golf team as a freshman,” Burner said. “He practiced and we watched him play, and we expect some good things with him. Experience is going to be a big thing with him.” The Wildcats will try to get their seven incoming freshmen lots of experience this fall. “Having seven freshmen, that’s a good thing for years to come,” Burner said. “For right now, the seven I have are going to be down on that JV level, hopefully getting ready for next year. They’re players, but just not players who have played a lot. There will be a lot of teaching going on.” Burner said Eastwood is the “big-time favorite” to win the NBC title this season, due to the fact the Eagles return NBC Player of the Year Steven Bruning along with Kyle Warnick. “I think the NBC will be top-heavy,” Burner said. “Eastwood will have two or three good golfers, and Rossford will have five guys who will shoot the same. Lake is always there. They have guys playing in the summer time. Terry (Tansel) has a winter program with them and has the program going pretty good.”

Former Northwood diamond stars go at it once more What do you get when you match up former Northwood baseball players who graduated in odd-numbered years and former players who played for the Rangers in even-numbered years? Pat McGaharan, Northwood Class of 1981, and former Northwood baseball parent Doug Canaday had a brainstorm back in 2005 that they would try to start an annual alumni baseball game. This year’s alumni game marks the ninth year, and as many as 40 former Rangers players have attended the event. This year’s game is August 10 at 1 p.m. at the high school field. The game, which is used to raise money for the Northwood baseball program, is open to all alumni players. “Doug had three kids graduate from Northwood, and he helped me a lot the first three years,” said McGaharan, who played third base and shortstop for the Rangers. “He put a lot of work into it. We both had kids (at Northwood) at the same time and we did work on the field. Back in 2005 we had a big fundraiser and started putting the money towards the field. We started coordinating an alumni game after that.” McGaharan said the money raised from the alumni game is donated to the baseball team and head coach Dave Russell. “He does whatever he wants with it,” McGahran said. “He does a good job for us.

He gets the field ready for us. We try to play at the high school field if we can.” Russell, a 1986 Northwood grad who is now the defensive coordinator for the Rangers’ football team, said he hasn’t been able to play in the alumni game because of his commitment to football. He said he loves the idea of hosting an alumni game. “Being an alumni myself, it’s pretty cool,” he said. “We get the field nice and ready. It’s nice to have them come back and play. All the money we raise goes right back to the diamond, buying dirt and those things. It’s good to see the guys come out. I’ve had a chance to pop in and say hi. Pat does a great job organizing and getting guys involved.” The object of the alumni game is to raise money, of course, but it’s also to have fun. To that end, some of the baseball rules are tweaked for the game. “We play four outfielders, and everybody bats,” McGaharan said. “We play a nine-inning game and it takes about three hours. Some years nobody hits the ball, but last year we had a lot of home runs. We played on a real small fence, at Central Park. We played the outfielders behind the fence and if you caught it, it was an out.”

The older guys get a kick out of it. We have a little get-together afterwards and shoot the breeze.

That’s where we need the young kids.” There will also be a home run derby at 11 a.m. on the day of the game. Last year’s derby winner, Dave Minarcin, went on to play baseball at the University of Toledo. The derby lasts three rounds. Past home run derby winners include John Vasko, a member of the Birmingham Hall of Fame, Chad Smith, Chad Dwyer, Joe Vancena and Shane McGaharan. Some of the former alumni game participants who went on to play college baseball after high school include Rick Coy (Kent State), Randy Coy (Toledo), Joe Vancena (Toledo), Todd Mahaney (University of Detroit), Dan Crispen (Defiance), Brian Mikols (Defiance), Steve Judy (Ball State), Brian Amstutz (Findlay), Scott Judy (Youngstown State), Steve Barton (Tiffin), Chad Smith (Owens), Kurt Smith (Defiance), Jay Neundorfer (Valdosta State), Aaron Vasko (Owens), Shane McGaharan (Chicago State) and Tyler Seibert (Oakton Community College). Dick Rolfes, Northwood Class of ‘65, has been the oldest returning player and is the official score keeper in charge of all postgame festivities.

McGaharan said anywhere from 25-40 former players participate in the game each year, some from as far back as the mid-’60s. Players from odd-numbered graduation years play against the guys from the evennumbered years. “The younger kids, when they pitch, try to throw curveballs,” McGaharan said. “I told them no curveballs. We don’t want guys to strike out. We want them to hit the ball. There is still competitiveness. We’ve had catchers get run over at the plate. Sometimes it’s hard to take that out of people’s blood. “Most of the guys are age 55 down to 30. The older guys get a kick out of it. We have a little get-together afterwards and shoot the breeze. We’re trying to get some of the younger kids involved. Some guys just come to watch. We get a decent turnout of fans.” McGaharan said about 25 former players have committed to this year’s game, but he’d like to get at least 15 more. One thing McGaharan said he doesn’t have trouble with is finding former players who want to pitch. “We give them a try and give them an inning and take them out,” he said. “We rotate in and out of the field. A guy can go

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

Obituary Baer, Richard A. Richard A. Baer, born October 24, 1932 in East McKeesport, PA, r e s i d e n t o f Perrysburg, peacefully passed at St. Charles on July 31, 2013. He was happy to have reached 80 and told family he was tired of fighting. His final round ended with God deciding that He was indeed ready for Dad. Richard took great pride in having served as a Marine in Korea. He loved all sports: racing, boxing, and especially the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirate teams. He loved an older cat he rescued and named Misty, commenting often on who rescued who. He is survived by his daughter Terri BaerGuidera (John DiNardo), son Stan (Aimee) Baer, grandsons Nathan, Nick (Amanda) Baer and great granddaughter Elliana Grace. There are many people whose lives he touched in later years with his kindness and generosity, including his wish for donation to the Neurosciences Dept at UTMC. Richard always lived life on his own terms and will be sadly missed by friends and family, who take comfort in knowing he is in God’s presence now and at peace. A memorial service is being planned; to express respects please consider a contribution to the Honor Flight program for Korean War Veterans or to Humane, Ohio.

Willis and Maybelle will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on August 10th. They were married August 10, 1953 at Trinity Episcopal, Toledo, Ohio. They have three children, nine grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

Myron & Sharon Busson will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary onAugust 10, 2013. They have two daughters; Laura (Kevin) O’Korn and Nancy (Ray) Stelmaszak and one grandson, Dominic O’Korn. Their children are hosting an Open House at Oak Shade Grove to celebrate their 50 years of marriage.
