Rare, electric Pacer last of its kind By J. Patrick Eaken Press Staff Writer Joe Badger likes AMC Pacers so much he collects them. One of his Pacers, an electric car built by Electric Vehicles Associates during the 1970s energy crisis, is believed to be the only one of its kind remaining. If you wander down to Genoa’s Cruisin’ classic car show and street fair on Sept. 21, you might catch Badger and his “Change of Pace.” Badger, a Genoa resident, owns JBI Corp., an independent battery testing laboratory not far from his home. So close, he can plug in his electric Pacer overnight and drive it to work the next day without spending a cent for gas. EVA was started by high school vocational education teachers in Cleveland as part of a student project. The aptly-named “Change of Pace” reached top speeds of 55 miles per hour and went from zero to 30 in less than 12 seconds. The range was 30 to 50 miles. According to Dennis Eichenberg, EVA made well over 100 Change of Pace Pacers, and then turned to Ford Fairmonts and Ford Escorts. Badger got his chance to meet Eichen-

...I thought, ‘Man, that’s a rare car. I have to have it,’ so I bought it.

Imagine you’re a grower but not able to even see the fruits of your labor until the day you harvest. Unlike the cultivation of grain crops or vegetables, Marc and Michele Gradel are relatively unsure if their efforts have paid off until Marc drains the ponds at his Martin farm. If it’s been a favorable growing season, the waters will recede to a certain level and then what was a placid pond resembles a boiling pan of water as thousands of shrimp are roused from their bottom-dwelling existence. In their third year of operating Sweetwater Farms, 7024 State Route 2, the Gradels are still learning the finer points of shrimp farming - an endeavor that Michele describes as a combination of hard work and fun. “During the season we can’t really see them,” Michele said. “We go out every night with a flashlight and feed them and can see their eyes but we don’t really know how many we have until we harvest them. It’s kind of nerve wracking.” The three ponds at Sweetwater Farms each cover about a half acre or so. The deep ends range from five to seven feet. The nearby Lake Erie marshes offer an advantage, says Michele, by naturally filtering the pond water. Freshwater shrimp have a sweeter taste than those grown in saltwater, she said, and have little or no iodine. The growing season coincides roughly with the summer months. The Gradels place juvenile shrimp in the ponds in early June and harvest them by mid-September. Ideally, the water temperature should be about 80 degrees. This summer was cool enough to affect the growth of the juveniles. “We had really cool weather this summer,” Michele said. “The year before last it was warmer and we had some real giants in there. People out here were calling them Bono lobster.”

berg, one of the original electrical engineers to work on converting Pacers and other cars to electric power. Badger bought his Pacer from a “car jockey,” who bought it from a New York engineer, inventor, and art gallery owner. He believes he has the only one remaining that is all-electric. “There might be some with gas motors in them because they were experimental, and most of them were sold to the government and electrical utilities and all torn apart,” Badger said. He saw it on eBay, and the temptation was too much. “I test batteries for a living, I collect

AMCs, and I thought, ‘Man, that’s a rare car. I have to have it,’ so I bought it,” Badger said. Badger’s Pacer only had 25 miles logged on it when he bought the car, but it was rusted, and it took the Genoa businessman two years, five months, and two weeks to finish restoration. “I took it completely apart,” Badger said. “I mean, you could not disassemble it any farther. I didn’t paint it or reassemble the body parts first, but I can’t take all the credit. A lot of people helped me. “I restored the original controls. I’ll say that they worked, but they didn’t work very well and even the engineer who had worked on it originally said they were dangerous, and that’s one of the reasons they were all disassembled after testing. I have all those original controls, which is very unusual. I don’t think you’ll find another set, and I put in a modern controller.” Badger also drives a 1973 German electric moped his father purchased to work, but he doesn’t take either vehicle much farther. He could drive the Pacer to Toledo or Sandusky, but would have to find somewhere to plug it in and wait for a charge, which usually takes overnight. “If you’re driving 35 to 40 miles per

Perry lecture Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, portrayed by Jeremy Meier, will visit the Hayes Presidential Center during a one-man lecture/performance Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to all. The Hayes Center is located at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues in Fremont. Meier, assistant professor of fine and performing arts at Owens Community College, was commissioned by the Ohio Humanities Council to develop and write a show based on Perry as part of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Titled “Oliver Hazard Perry: Hero of Lake Erie,” the 35-minute performance will relate the history of the Battle of Lake Erie as told by Perry himself. Meier will take questions from the audience following the lecture. It took Meier nine months to research Perry, the Navy commander who is known for his victory over a British squadron during the Battle of Lake Erie. He then enlisted the help of colleague Nichole Newman, an adjunct professor in fine and performing arts at Owens, to design and create period clothing for his performances. Meier premiered his work during the 2013 Ohio Chautauqua Series. Visit for more information.

Continued from front page hour, I think you might get 50 to 60 miles. If you get up to 60 miles per hour, I’m not sure you’ll get 20 miles out of it — you’ll probably get 10 to 15,” Badger said. “It’s very complicated because it depends on how far you drove it — how many amp-per-hours you took out. To fully charge a battery, you have to put in more energy than you took out. So, if you took out 100 amp-per-hours, you’d have to put back in 120 amp-per-hours to fully charge the battery,” Badger continued. “It has a little two-gallon gasoline tank because it has a gasoline fired heater, like a Volkswagen, to keep the cockpit warm in the winter. I’ve never used it, but other than that, you have to plug it into the wall to recharge it. I have a charger built into the car, you open the gas cap. “ It has automatic transmission, and if you’re tired of changing oil, this might be the car for you. Very little engine oil is necessary, if any, and also not necessary are many engine parts needed to run a gasoline fueled automobile. “You have transmission fluid, but if you have no leaks you would use none or a very minimal amount,” Badger said. “But, if you have flooded batteries you have to keep distilled water in them. I don’t have any idea how much it costs to charge it offhand — I haven’t figured that out. But it costs less per mile to operate. “It’s all manufactured very well with 120-volt golf cart batteries, and it is actually programmable. I have a laptop that I carry in the front seat and I can monitor its performance.” The original owner invented a “hydraulically operated hybrid vehicle recharging system,” which he patented and put on the car. Badger believes the 1970s-era patent has expired, and he removed the system so that the Pacer can be restored to its original condition. But, it did serve a purpose. “It has air cylinders next to all the shock absorbers, and if the car bounced up and down over bumps, these air cylinders would compress air in a tank, and that compressed air would run a generator which would help recharge the battery,” Badger said. “I’d compare it to regenerative braking — when you put on the brakes, you use the energy developed to recharge the battery. This car doesn’t have that, but it had this device on there, which was patented, but it’s not very practicable. It gives you a hair more range.” And, if you’re driving and don’t want to hear engine noise, then this could be the car for you, too. “You can hear an electric motor hum, but actually when you are driving it 50 or 60 miles per hour all you’re hearing is road noise. There’s no engine noise,” Badger said. “It’s built the way an electric car should be built — with minimal devices that require electricity. You can get them as options, but there is no radio. There is a fan, but there are no power windows. There are no electric seats. You need to use the energy to drive the vehicle to make it function.” Badger says until the technology happens the auto industry is waiting for, he would not encourage most car owners to buy an all-electric vehicle. He also owns a Ford hybrid, which he says is a better bet, for now. “There are a lot of new technologies, but it will take some breakthroughs,” Badger said. “But you didn’t want to ever say

Lithium batteries, they know how to make a lithium battery and the chemistry of it is well-understood, but the problem is manufacturing techniques have to be perfect.

wants, you’ll have to go with hybrids. I’d hate to give up the muscle cars and stuff and I wouldn’t, but a pure electric car in the city, or if you are running back and forth to Genoa a few times, for my transportation needs, which are very minimal, which is just getting around town, a pure electric vehicle would be OK. But they require some understanding. “To drive from here to Rayz’ Café and back, it’s handy. To drive from here to Cleveland and back, it’s not handy. For the average person, if you wanted to participate in the green movement, I would tell you that a hybrid would be a better choice. “

Former Clay athletes sue district, ProMedica By Melissa Burden Press Contributing Writer Three lawsuits were filed on Monday, September 9 in Lucas County Common Pleas Court by three males who allege a former athletic trainer sexually abused them while they were minors. The three complaints, two by former Clay student-athletes and one by the mother of a minor, were filed against Clay High School, Principal Jeff Thompson, ProMedica Health Systems, and Melinda Rober, the former athletic trainer. The suits are each seeking in excess of $1 million in punitive and compensatory damages, Rober, 35, was arraigned in April, in Oregon Municipal Court. She was charged with two counts of sexual battery after allegedly having sexual relations with two underage male students over the last 18 months. In May, Rober was indicted by a Lucas County Grand Jury. The pre-trial hearing on the criminal case is scheduled for September 25 in front of Judge Gary Cook. In April, Oregon School Board President PJ Kapfhammer told The Press that the district took immediate action when the first alleged victim came forward in April. Kapfhammer said he notified the ad-

ministration and the Oregon Police Department immediately. A second alleged victim also come forward Kapfhammer said adding he had spoken to four to five more students who had “asked for help.” Kapfhammer told The Press in April there had been Melinda Rober rumors concerning ( Rober for some time. “There were rumors, but nothing even close to this,” he said. “It looks like a lot of boys knew and this stuff was known by the group. Some of the victims did not tell anyone, period. We are just beginning to understand some of the things that went on. As soon as there was a hint that the rumor was real, we immediately made sure the kids were safe and taken care of.” One suit alleges Ms. Rober engaged in sexual activity in 2008 and 2009 with the student that “Included but was not limited to groping, sexually suggestive conduct, including grabbing his private parts and physically placing her hand in his groin

area on multiple occasions, sexually suggestive talk, and sending naked photographs of herself along with text messages over multiple years and continuing to the recent current date.” The second suit states Ms. Rober engaged in sex with the student from 2011 to 2013. The suit alleges “An act of oral sex by Rober was done in the middle of the football stadium.” The suit also alleges sexual intercourse took place in the high school’s physical therapy room. In the third suit, the young man alleges Ms. Rober “performed sexual intercourse” with him on February 9 while on an athletic trip with the school’s wrestling team. The suit alleges the victim has suffered “Severe emotional harm and substantially lower academic performance and the consequences of these harms will extend into the future indefinately.” The plaintiffs allege Mr. Thompson failed to report the suspected abuse. ProMedica, the suits allege, failed to properly train, supervise, or observe Ms. Rober’s interactions with student-athletes at Clay. Kapfhammer told The Press last week that the district’s attorneys are involved in the cases. “It is important to remember that she (Rober) was not and has never been an employee of the district,” Kapfhammer said.

Douglas Ensign

James Routson

Two inducted into Clay Hall The Clay High School Athletic Department and the Clay High Alumni & Friends Association inducted new members at the annual Hall of Fame Game against Waite High School Sept. 13 at Clay Memorial Stadium. The two new inductees into the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame include Doug Ensign and Jim Routson, both members of the class of 1957. Douglas L. Ensign, honored as graduate and coach, was a prominent member of the championship basketball and baseball teams, the marching band and bowling team at Clay. In 1958, on a volunteer basis, he started the first Clay High School girls’ fastpitch softball team, which went 9-6 for the season. Every year he was involved at Clay, the team had a winning record. Coaching the girls in the Oregon/Toledo summer leagues, he took them to their first state tournament in 1983. He stayed in the program for 10 years as an assistant to Jeff Lee, who was the first coach after Clay declared it as a varsity sport. His two daughters were involved in the Clay athletic program. His daughter, Kris, was honored all-league in all sports and in 1997, she became head coach of the softball program at Cardinal Stritch High School. She asked her dad to help, he agreed and they were league champions for the next three years. Knowing the importance of athletics in his life, while coaching at the Oregon Recreation Center, Clay Elementary and Clay Senior High School, Ensign worked diligently toward developing a cooperative relationship between the Oregon Recreation program and the Clay athletic program. He was director of the Clay Boosters for 10 years and in 1995, was awarded the Clay High Athletics Super Boosters award. James L. Routson, graduate, teacher and coach. After graduating from Clay Senior High School in 1957, Routson attended Bowling Green State University on a basketball scholarship. Upon graduating in 1961, he accepted a position teaching math at his alma mater and in 1964, he became the Clay High School varsity basketball coach. He left teaching in 1967 to attend graduate school at the University of South Carolina. In 1968, after earning a Master’s Degree in mathematics, he returned to teach math at Clay. A dedicated educator, he taught advanced math, tutored students and introduced the first computer programming class. In 1971, Routson and fellow teacher Duke Ziebold started the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His career continued as the Clay girls varsity basketball coach from 1973-1984. He retired from Clay in 1994 and worked until 1996 at Vallet Paint Company.

Shrimp Continued from front page “We put in 2,800 juvenile shrimp,” Michele said. “What we get out always varies. We don’t know about the weather or how many predators are going to get into the pond – the birds, snakes and frogs. In that way, it’s like any other crop, it varies with the weather year by year.” During a recent sale, the Gradels drained two ponds and harvested a little more than 300 pounds. A harvest and sale of the third pond’s bounty was scheduled for Sept. 14. The harvest is when the fun begins as friends and family stop by to help.

“We must have 30 or so people rolling around in the mud,” Michele said, adding she’d like to expand the event and invite area fruit and vegetable growers to have stands on site. “We’re getting better at harvesting, weighing and washing and bagging them,” Michele said. “We have wonderful friends and family to help.” This year’s harvest drew customers from throughout Northwest Ohio as well as passersby from Detroit and Cleveland. Raymond Morse, a family friend, is a regular at the harvests. “It’s really cool to see how Marc has done this,” he said. Research on the temperate culture of freshwater shrimp in the U.S. began at Kentucky State University around 1990, according to the aquaculture program at the Ohio

State University. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources restricted their culture in the state until 2000. A year later, several producers in Ohio, most in southern counties, raised their first crops of freshwater shrimp. Bob Calala, president of the Ohio Aquaculture Association, estimates there are now about 35 freshwater shrimp growers in Ohio. Mike Wilkerson, of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife, said the state requires permits for shrimp farms like those operated by the Gradels. Owners must file records annually of what they buy and sell. The Gradels also raise grain crops. “It’s not a big profit yet,” Michele said of the shrimp venture.

Genoa considers water system staff changes By Cynthia Jacoby Special to The Press Genoa officials are rethinking how they staff the village water system. For years, the water system that serves the 1,430 registered meters has been operated as a distribution system. Genoa buys its water from the City of Oregon. The city pumps the water through a 16-inch pipe from the city to a meter pit located at State Route 579 and Genoa-Clay Center Road that helps boost the flow to the village water tower. But a recent survey by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency tags the village system as a Class I water system, said Kevin Gladden, village administrator. That

means the village must have a Class 1 water system operator on the job. “We thought we simply had a distribution system. There is no big plant,” Gladden explained. However, because the village is required to pump chlorine into the system occasionally, it no longer qualifies under the distribution system designation, Gladden said he was told. “They clarified things for us,” he added. As a result, “The minimum we need someone is three days a week at least one and half hours a day.” The operator, who must have a license sanctioned by the state, is responsible for a number of tasks, including taking water samples, adding chemicals, keeping log

books and filing state reports. Currently, the consulting firm of IMF is providing those services. Now village council must weigh whether it’s more fiscally responsible to bring someone on board as a village employee or use an independent contractor. “At $1,250 a month for 12 months a year, we need to consider if we want to continue on this way or hire someone on staff. It’s something you have to consider,” Gladden said. Either way, the cost of operations for the water system is bound to go up. Gladden said he’s not sure how these changes will affect current water rates in the village.

Ruck for Warriors honors 9/11 tragedy In remembrance of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and to raise awareness about tragic military/veteran suicides, a pair of local organizations teamed up to sponsored a Ruck walk on Sept. 11. (A ruck is a heavy backpack containing supplies and other necessities). Ruck for Warriors, an organization whose mission is to raise awareness and prevent military and veteran suicides, and the Toledo Chapter of Team RWB (Red, White and Blue), an organization dedicated to help veterans transition from service member to civilian, sponsored the full-ruck march from Oak Harbor to the Toledo Firefighter Memo-

rial in Toledo – a 25-mile route. Michael Lattea, RWB member and founder of Ruck for Warriors, was joined on the walk by Brian Stark. Others took up with the pair along the way and walked part of the way, including Joe Helle and 6year-old Timothy Willoughby, whose mom, Nicole is Chapter Captain of Team RWB Toledo. Ms. Willoughby, a wounded veteran, followed the ruckers in her vehicle to provide hydration and medical support. The marchers left at about 7 a.m., and throughout the day, braved the 90-plus degree heat and humidity, traveling along SR 163 to SR 51 to the memorial at Huron and Beech streets in Toledo. Upon arrival, a

moment of silence was held for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Informational displays were also available for veterans. Founded in 2009, Team RWB has become one of the community organizing leaders in helping veterans transition to a civilian lifestyle and become active members of their community, usually while dealing with some form of stressor. This is just one of several marches put forth by Ruck for Warriors. More information about the organization is available on Facebook. For more information about Team RWB, visit or look for Team RWB Toledo on Facebook.

Battle of Lake Erie commemorated on stamp Two hundred years ago, the phrase, “We have met the enemy and they are ours,” was penned by U.S. Navy Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry in a report notifying General William Henry Harrison that the British had been defeated at the historic Battle of Lake Erie. To commemorate the resounding triumph of the War of 1812 the U.S. Postal Service dedicated the War of 1812: Battle of Lake Erie Forever stamp on Sept. 10 – the 200th anniversary of the iconic battle. The First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony took place at the Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial on South Bass Island in Lake Erie near the location of the battle. Available in sheets of 20, customers may purchase the stamps at stamps, at 800-STAMP-24 (800-782-6724) or at local Post Offices. The USS Constitution Forever stamp, issued last August, was the first in the War

of 1812 Forever stamp series. Details on additional stamps in the series will be announced at a later date. For the stamp art, the Postal Service selected William Henry Powell’s famous painting, “Battle of Lake Erie.” The oil-oncanvas painting, completed in 1873, was

commissioned by the U.S. Congress and placed at the head of the east stairway in the Senate wing of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. It depicts Perry in the small boat he used to transfer from his ruined flagship, the Lawrence, to the Niagara. A 19th-century engraving of Perry by William G.

Tigers announcer recalls sports arena

Bruised, talented players dot Toledo hockey By Jeffery D. Norwalk Press Contributing Writer Contributing writer Jefferey D. Norwalk featured long time Toledo hockey public address announcer Bobb Vergeils, currently the voice of the Detroit Tigers, in the May 13 edition of The Press. Here, in time for hockey season, Norwalk throws out more of Vergeils’ tales. If you have been a fan of Toledo professional hockey, you know that its history includes plenty of bruising players, plenty of promising future NHL players, plenty of fights, and even more entertainment. The very first time Sports Arena public address announcer Bobb Vergiels slid behind the microphone for a Toledo Storm game against the Raleigh IceCaps in 1991, swarms of Toledo’s fans converged sporting their green and yellow, only to file out of the barn three hours later totally swept up by the new kids in town. They had seen the first-ever Storm goal scored by Bruce MacDonald 54 seconds into the game and a promising, bruising lineup consisting of studs as fellow forwards Mike Maurice, Mike Casselman, and Brad McCaughey; defensemen Pat Pylypuik and Greg Bignell; and lights-out goaltender Scott King, to name a few. They also saw the last game at the Sports Arena, April 14, 2007 against the Cincinnati Cyclones, which Toledo fittingly lost, 7-3. After the final horn finally sounded, Vergeils somberly made his way out onto the ice he had negotiated so many times prior for Chuck-a-Puck, Score-O, and other silly promotions, and kissed the rink goodbye like he was kissing an old friend. That was the last official photo ever taken at the arena, which Vergeils treasures to this day. Vergiels could talk for many beers and maybe even a cup of chili and a hot dog or two from his favorite, the former Central Hot Dog on Front Street, about Toledo hockey. He called many games over 20 years, including the Storm’s first-ever Riley Cup championship-win in April of ’93 when Mark “The Deazel” Deazeley, charging hard to the net, took a pretty Ian Duncan feed, and buried the puck past Wheeling Thunderbird goaltender Frankie Ouellette for the game-winner in an exhausting, double-overtime barnburner. Afterwards, Ouellette, a notorious hothead in East Coast Hockey League lore, shattered his stick over his crossbar, which Vergiels collected from referee Russ Johnson, and took home as a souvenir to commemorate the occasion. He still has the stick today. Bloody, knock-down, drag-em-out fights? He’s witnessed a few of those,

Longtime Toledo hockey public address announcer Bobb Vergeils, currently the voice of the Detroit Tigers. (Photo courtesy of Toledo Walleye) too, like the Ken Tasker vs. Trevor Senn (Richmond Renegades) slobber knocker in ‘99, which featured two of the ECHL’s toughest, most-notorious enforcers trading punches at center ice for a little over 30 seconds, which to this day is still the mostwatched hockey fight on YouTube. As a riveting storyteller, he can spin the tales of MacDonald going over the penalty box glass after the Icehawks’ bird mascot one rowdy playoff night in Louisville, and of Wheeling Nailers’ enforcer Matt Van Horlick getting laid out by two different Storm players in less than five minutes during “Church Night” in Toledo. Favorite players? His Facebook “friends list” reads like something of a “Who’s Who in Toledo Hockey,” many of whom he tries to keep in touch with, like Rick Judson, Andrew Williamson, Duncan, Nick Vitucci (also current head coach of Walleye), Alexandre Jacques, Rob Thorpe, Nick Parillo, and David Goverde of the Storm; and Evan Rankin and Kyle Rogers (“C”) of the Walleye. There have been crazy nights, too. An unnamed Storm goaltender stumbled out of the Consaul Tavern one night, only to end up stumbling into a neighbor’s house, where the homeowner found said-player fast-asleep on his couch the next morning. There were proud moments. In 200203, Vergiels was tabbed to present former Toledo Goaldigger and then Storm head coach Claude Noel with the Brabham Cup — for the ECHL team which finishes with the most regular season points — and the

ECHL Coach of the Year award. “Claude’s always been a class-act, and a close, personal friend of mine,” Vergeils said. There were tear-stained times. In ’98 when Vergiels’ father passed away, the first floral arrangement to arrive at the funeral home was a plant from the Storm Fan Club, a plant which still survives and thrives to this day, and one which Bobb calls “Dad.” Vergiels has played the part of Toledo hockey historian tirelessly. He still has the game-worn jerseys of both the Storm’s firstever captain and last-ever captain, in Byron Lomow and Jason Malenko. Vergeils has all three scorecards from Storm female goaltender Erin Whitten’s historic 9-8 win over Wheeling on Oct. 30, ’92. However, he had to trade then Storm coach Chris McSorley three six-packs for it. The game still stands as the only victory recorded by a woman in a major male team sport, some 20 years later. Vergiels has given instructions to his children, that when he passes away, all three scorecards are to go to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Throughout his two decade run, Vergeils settled into the role of resident court jester with equal degrees of self-deprecating humor. He encouraged home fans to boo him when he announced his own name at the beginning of games – “And I’m your rink announcer, Bobb Vergiels” — and he regularly held up handmade signs, with wacky messages scrawled on them that read, “I’m Carty Finkbeiner’s Public Relations Manager,” or “I Work at Hooter’s.”

A divided Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling against an employee of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station who claimed he was wrongfully discharged and defamed by FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co., which operates the power plant. Mark Whitaker, security shift supervisor, had appealed a decision by the Ottawa County Common Pleas Court granting summary judgment to FirstEnergy. After a review by the company of Whitaker’s and eight other supervisors’ timecards and electronic badge swiping data, the company fired him in August 2007 and another supervisor, citing discrepancies in hours worked and what was on time cards. Following his termination, FENOC, as required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, conducted a review of his employment and concluded the fraudulent timecard reporting demonstrated he didn’t possess a “high assurance of trustworthiness and reliability,” according to court testimony. As a result, his name was flagged in a national database called Personnel Access Data System, which signaled to other nuclear plants Whitaker had been denied unescorted access within Davis-Besse. He filed a lawsuit against the company in September 2010, claiming the company fired him in retaliation for reporting safety concerns. He also claimed he was defamed by the company by placing him on the national database, resulting in him not being able to get another job in the power industry. Between July 2, 2002 and May 27, 2007, Whitaker wrote 136 “condition reports” of safety and security situations he had concerns about. According to court records, Whitaker testified his supervisor, George Fidurski, told him to “slow down” in writing the reports. Appellate Judges Mark Pietrykowski and James Jensen wrote that the summary judgment was appropriate. Judge Stephen Yarbrough dissented in part. “Given the evidence... including the threatening statements Fidurski made to Whitaker within close proximity of his placement on administrative leave, I find that a genuine issue of material fact exists as to whether FENOC’s termination decision was motivated by the condition reports Whitaker filed, or by Whitaker’s overstatement of his hours.” he wrote.

Town hall elevator upgrade put off By Cynthia L. Jacoby Special to The Press

tem is inspected annually and the village has a license to operate it. But village council has talked for years about updating the old system with new electronics and wiring, enhancing both safety and daily service. “The control unit for that system is nearly 50 years. And when it breaks down, it’s getting harder and harder to find the parts,” the administrator said. “And the older they get, the more they cost to fix.” Updating the electronic hardware could also mean a cost savings on the electric bill. The older equipment pulls more voltage to lift up and down. Gladden said the upgrade will happen. It’s just a matter of time and money. Council member Daryl Bittner suggested at a recent meeting that the village seek grants to help with the costs. Gladden told him his crew is exploring grants and other financing options now. Given the rising costs, “The village could say ‘We are not going to do this project.’ But I don’t see that happening,” Gladden said. The town hall building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is classified as the oldest free-standing municipal building in Ottawa County. The town hall also houses the Genoa Civic Center on its second floor. The elevator is critical to the continuation of the performances. “Without the elevator,” Gladden added, “I don’t believe many would use the stairs. They are narrow and winding and there’s a double landing up there. For the time period it was built, steep and narrow was normal. Not today.”

State regulations have forced the Village of Genoa to put off a badly needed upgrade to the Town Hall elevator for another year, the village administrator says. Village leaders had planned to upgrade electronics, wiring and plumbing on the 1960s-era elevator this fall. It would have been the first major rehab on the decadesold system. But state officials have weighed in the project, resulting in a markup of at least $35,000 in additional costs, said Administrator Kevin Gladden. The cost estimate offered by elevator repair experts put the upgrade around $50,000, which the village figured into its 2013 budget. Newer estimates are running between $85,000 and $100,000. State regulators chimed in with changes this summer – the costliest being the addition of a sump pump installed at the base of the two-story system. “We have to have a sump pump in the basement of the shaft,” Gladden said, “in order to protect the elevator in case of flooding issues. That means the installation of a crock, the sump pump and somewhere to discharge.” The mandate also includes setting up a system to protect the elevator from oil problems. “That’s a hydraulic lift. It’s not run by chains. It only goes two floors,” Gladden explained. The elevator still meets standard daily regulations set forth by a division of the Ohio Department of Commerce. The sys-

Although simulcasting action will continue, September 15 was to mark the final night of live harness racing action at Toledo’s Raceway Park. The track has been offering entertainment to its patrons since opening the doors in 1962. The track’s finale hosted fan appreciation specials and favorites.

eek: Be Charitable Judging Others

We are often inclined to judge another's actions unfavorably, attributing their actions to malice or lack of consideration, when in fact we really don't know why people do the things they do. It is difficult enough to correctly judge our own motivation, let alone try to define someone else's. Forbearance in judging others or judging their actions in the most favorable light is almost always a good policy. For one thing, people are then more likely to return the factor and forbear judging us. For another thing, people tend to live up to


(or down to) our judgements and expectations; so, judging others in the best possible light raises the moral bar. And finally, since most communication is miscommunication, the charitable forbearance of judgement allows us to ask others what they really meant, and thus not jump to uncharitable conclusions. Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged. - R.S.V. Matthew 7.1

Field to Table

Dinner a showcase for farm’s produce By Larry Limpf News Editor For several hours during a recent pleasant evening, a farm in Ottawa County had the ambiance of a Five Star restaurant. The guests sipped wine and sampled hors d’oeuvres before dinner while the music of a classical guitarist wafted over the fields. The first courses offered were a salad of fresh field greens with cranberries, peaches, bleu cheese and apples topped with a maple vinaigrette dressing and a chilled soup of garbanzo beans, basil and leeks. The entrée was pan-roasted chicken breasts with blue potato gratin and peas. For dessert, diners enjoyed lemon shortcake with raspberries and Chantilly cream. The menu reflected the work of Kurt and Corinna Bench, owners of Shared Legacy Farms who operate a Community Supported Agriculture program at their farm near Elmore. To date, about 350 households are CSA members. The dinner, which the Bench’s dubbed Field to Table, offered those enrolled in the CSA a chance to see the farm and enjoy a meal featuring its organically-grown produce. “We wanted to create an event on our farm where our CSA members could come out and not only eat a top-notch meal made with produce straight off our fields, but also walk our vegetable beds and experience our farm first-hand in a truly first-class kind of way,” Kurt said. The Bench’s hired a local chef, Edward Logan, to prepare the meal. “We knew chef Ed from Terra (State Community College) and knew that he would do some creative stuff that would make our produce shine,” Bench said. Corinna said the setting - in the midst of the 10-plus-acre farm – made the culi-

We were eating this food that had a story behind it,” she said. “Many of our customers had never made the drive out here. It was something we wanted them to see.” Shared Legacy holds several family events during the year, including a pesto fest, tomato canning workshop, hayrides and bonfire/pumpkin hunt, but the dinner was an idea the Bench’s had been considering for a couple of years. It was time to try something more elegant, Corinna said. Another dinner will be planned for next year. This past spring was a turning point for

“There is an important concept woven into the CSA model that takes the concept beyond the usual commercial transaction. That is the notion of shared risk: In most CSAs, members pay up front for the whole season and the farmers do their best to provide an abundant box of produce each week. If things are slim, members are not typically reimbursed. The result is a feeling of `we’re in this together,’ “ the LocalHarvest website says. Corinna said Share Legacy Farms suffered a significant loss in yields this summer due to flooding conditions in July but most customers have been understanding. “All in all we had a very good year considering we had a rough patch there for about three weeks,” she said.

Kurt as he decided to leave a full-time job off the farm and focus on the CSA, which he and his wife started in 2008 with only 12 enrolled customers. Since then, membership has doubled each year. “That was a big leap of faith for us,” Corinna said. “He used to work in the fields until 11 or 12 at night with a head lamp, then get up at 5 a.m. to go to his full-time job.” Members will be offered the first opportunity to re-enroll with Shared Legacy Farms for the 2014 season, she said. Enrollment for the general public will be offered starting on Oct. 21. LocalHarvest, a clearing house of information about Community Supported Agriculture, says there are about 4,000 CSA farms in its nation-wide database.

Local author Kenn Kaufman honored by scientific group Kenn Kaufman of Oak Harbor recently was honored for his contributions to the scientific study of birds. The recognition came from the American Ornithologistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union (AOU), one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading professional societies for bird study. For 130 years, the AOU has been promoting science and publishing the results of original research, and virtually all the professional ornithologists in the U.S. and Canada belong to the group. There are two honorary levels of membership. Individuals may be chosen as Elective Members for â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant contributions to ornithology.â&#x20AC;? From among the Elective Members, a few are chosen as Fellows for â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptional and sustained contributions to ornithology.â&#x20AC;? Kaufman was one of 16 individuals added to the ranks of Fellows of the American Ornithologistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union at the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent meeting in Chicago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most AOU Fellows are doing full-

Kaufman writes regularly for several popular magazines, including Audubon, Birds & Blooms, BirdWatching, and Bird Watcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Digest. He is the author or coauthor of a dozen books, including the Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America. Dr. Andy Jones, Director of Science and Curator of Ornithology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, sent Kaufman a congratulatory note after the announcement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could we ever try to quantify your impact on the study of birds? From your contributions to bird identification, to our understanding of bird distributions in North America, to popular literature on the science / sport / hobby / passion of birding, to inspiring the next generation of birders and ornithologists, you have had an

outsized impact on the entire field of bird study.â&#x20AC;? Kaufman is also active with the Black Swamp Bird Observatory where his wife, Kimberly is the executive director. The Kaufmans have been instrumental in the annual festival known as The Biggest Week in American Birding, which brings tens of thousands of birders to northwestern Ohio every May.

Unintended consequences are a common phenomenon Dare to Live

by Bryan Golden

The pitfall is not recognizing them and making necessary changes.

“The Law of unintended consequences holds that almost all actions have at least one unintended consequence. Unintended consequences are a common phenomenon, due to the complexity of the world and human nature.” In spite of the best of intentions, there are often unintended consequences which detract from the original objective. These unplanned outcomes are often surprising and may even lead to new problems. Rob’s best friend, Al was experiencing financial difficulties after being laid off from his job. Al asked Rob to borrow some money for a month or two until he could find employment. Rob readily agreed to lend the money to Al. Since Rob had known Al for many years, he didn’t think it was necessary to put anything in writing. Rob had no doubt that Al would repay the loan. After several months, Al had not repaid the loan or made any payments to Rob. Rob didn’t ask Al about the money because he felt uncomfortable doing so. Al was uncomfortable seeing or speaking to Rob because he hadn’t gotten a job and couldn’t afford to repay the loan. The unintended consequences of Rob’s attempting to help Al are that Al stopped having contact with Rob and Rob seemingly lost a good friend. There are many unintended conse-

quences with children. A young child’s curiosity is peaked when he or she is told not to do something for their own safety. As a result, children are more interested

in engaging in forbidden activities than those which are permitted. A parent who helps their adult child financially runs the risk of the child becoming economically dependent on them, less ambitious, or even resentful if the parent asks to be repaid. Although the parent is only trying to help out, there is the risk of unintended consequences. As another example, it’s fascinating to observe how many people touch the paint when a “wet paint” sign is posted, in order to verify if the paint is really wet. The unintended consequence of the sign is having more people touch the paint than if no special attention was drawn to it. On cars, anti-lock brakes are designed to reduce accidents by preventing a driver from losing control as a result of locking up the wheels. However, after the introduction of anti-lock brakes, accidents actually increased because drivers were less cautious believing the anti-lock brakes would stop them in any conditions. Some restaurants, in an attempt to fairly distribute tips among the wait staff, utilize tip pooling where each employee gets an equal share of the tips. Although altruistic in its intent, this system results in their best employees earning fewer tips while the underperformers make more.

Agriculture department’s reckless plan My friend Jim, a farmer, jokes about bringing a bowl of manure and a spoon to the farmers’ markets where he sells his beef. “My beef has no manure in it, but you can add some,” he’d like to tell his customers. I’m sure you’d pass on manure as a condiment. But unless you’re a vegetarian or you slaughter your own meat, you may have eaten it. And if the U.S. Department of Agriculture moves forward with its plan to make a pilot program for meat inspection more widespread, this problem can only get worse. Manure isn’t supposed to wind up on your dinner table. It’s a major risk factor for E. coli and other foodborne pathogens. And, when the animals are alive, meat and poop don’t come in contact. It’s only in the processing plant where the contamination can take place. Since the days of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle — a 1906 novel that brought the abysmal conditions in slaughterhouses to light — some things haven’t changed in the meatpacking industry. Companies increase profits by speeding up their operations. Once the animals enter, each worker performs one step in the process of turning the creatures into various cuts of meat, packaging them, and shipping them out. The faster this happens, the more animals the workers process, the more money the company makes. Unfortunately, the faster the workers go, the more mistakes they make. They work quickly, often with sharp knives or next to dangerous machines. One terrible mistake can result in a lost finger or limb. More often, workers suffer from injuries related to repeating the same motions, over and over. Severe tendinitis is common. Breakneck line speeds can result in inadvertent animal cruelty as well. A dozen years ago, The Washington Post described

Guest Editorial

My beef has no manure in it, but you can add some.

By Jill Richardson

the problems once in an article tellingly titled, They Die Piece by Piece. As slaughterhouse workers do their best to fly through their work, one animal after another, their mistakes sometimes result in “fecal contamination.” In simple language, that means poop gets in the meat. This can happen when manure on an animal’s hide gets into the meat, or when the animal is gutted and the contents of its intestines make a mess. USDA regulations and inspectors are supposed to prevent this problem. The government limits line speeds so that plants can’t push for more profits at the expense of worker and food safety. And

it stations inspectors in slaughterhouses to make sure sick animals don’t become part of the food supply. That might change. Under the pilot program used in five hog processing plants for over a decade, the government reduced the number of USDA inspectors. The companies hired some of its own inspectors to replace the USDA ones. And line speeds increased by 20 percent. The result? The company’s own inspectors were more reluctant or slower to stop the lines when they spotted problems, The Washington Post observed in a new report. That means more poop in the meat. Three of the five plants using this system are among the top 10 worst in the nation for health and safety violations. This lousy system results in increased profits for companies, decreased costs for the USDA (since it employs fewer inspectors), and less food safety for American consumers. So what’s our government going to do about this? Despite the poor track record, the small number of plants involved, and concerns expressed by inspectors and the government’s General Accountability Office, the USDA’s on the verge of expanding that same failed pilot program to every pork plant in the nation. It’s also scaling up a similarly flawed poultry inspection pilot program. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this plan stinks. We have enough problems with foodborne illness already without making it worse.

Jill Richardson is the author of Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It. OtherWords. org.

The unintended consequences are that the best wait staff will leave for another restaurant where they are rewarded for their hard work while those who aren’t as ambitious remain since they are happy with the tip pooling arrangement. The tip pooling establishment loses its best employees to the competition. In your life, it’s important to be aware of any unintended consequences resulting from your actions. In spite of your best intentions, there are situations where the outcomes are not what you expected. Learn from your past experiences. Try to anticipate possible scenarios resulting from your actions. Remain flexible. Adjust your behavior as needed in response to any unintended consequences that arise. Don’t become discouraged because of unintended consequences. They are a normal part of life. The pitfall is not recognizing them and making necessary changes.

Better solution needed To the editor: I find it very difficult to believe the main reason President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid want to militarily strike Syria is because chemical weapons were used on children. You can tell what a person really believes by his or her actions. I have not heard any of the three speak out against the atrocities committed by Philadelphia abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell who was convicted of murdering babies outside the womb. Where was the outrage when this occurred? Now they want us to believe that they care about Syrian children? I’m afraid they only care about saving face since Mr. Obama arrogantly drew a red line. If he had never made this public statement, maybe Syria would never have used these weapons. Why challenge an atrocious egomaniac dictator? To show who is boss, he called Mr. Obama’s bluff. This administration needs to swallow its pride and work with other nations to come up with a better solution short of a military attack. Who knows what the repercussions of that could lead to. I doubt if it would be good.

This show was the first of 10 in the Live in the House Concert Series co-sponsored by the Pemberville Freedom Area Historical Society and the Grand Rapids Arts Council and funded by the Ohio Arts Council. The schedule features accomplished musicians with Ohio ties and national reputations who specialize in “old timey music.” Biales kicked off the series and coming up are a string band, a bluegrass band, a couple of piano players, and two folk music and comedy teams, one of them reminiscent of the Smothers Brothers. Here’s a brief look to whet your appetite: Oct 5: The Back Porch Swing Band featuring three-time Ohio State fiddle champion Adam Jackson; Nov 2: The Dodworth Saxhorn Band, a 19th century brass band that uses antique instruments to play songs popular during the Civil War Era.

The perception for many is that there isn’t anything to do in Northwest Ohio. The reality is there is too much to do. Take this past weekend, for example. You could have attended the Greek-American Festival in Toledo; the Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green or the GrubN-Suds Motorcycle Festival in Elmore. My wife and I chose Peter Navarre Day at Noon, dinner at the Hollywood Casino and listening to the Belle of the Blues, Lisa Biales at the restored Pemberville Opera House built in 1891. There were many other choices for a day trip or a night out in T-town and its burbs last Saturday and our tastes run a little more esoteric than most—local history and the blues being two of them. Neither event disappointed. The East Toledo Historical Society and the Oregon Jerusalem Historical Society joined together to honor this area’s most famous historical figure on the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie, the pivotal victory against the British Naval forces in the War of 1812. The legendary scout Peter Navarre delivered messages through the Black Swamp for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and General William Henry Harrison. Dale Redd, a Navarre descendent, formally presented his family’s heirloom, an 1837 pistol owned by Peter Navarre, to the Oregon Jerusalem Society to display at its Brandville School museum. After dinner at the casino, we drove 16 miles to Pemberville to hear Lisa Biales, an accomplished blues-folk-country singer from Oxford Ohio. Biales has a clear, confident voice, a crucial attribute for a story-telling musician whose lyrics are the show, not the guitar. She sang her own creations from her seven cds, old blues songs by Mississippi John Hurt and Sippy Wallace, classic country from Patsy Cline, John Prine and Linda Ronstadt and folk-rock numbers from Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Biales played guitar and was accompanied by Doug Hamilton on violin. Hamilton has toured with Reba McEntire and Barbara Mandrell. The opera house is an intimate setting

Federal Duck Stamp contest The Federal Duck Stamp, also known as the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, is selected from hundreds of submitted works of art each year by distinguished judges. For every dollar sold, 98 cents are used for the lease and purchase of critical habitat for waterfowl, wetland birds and other wildlife. To date, the Federal Duck Stamp is one of the world’s most successful wildlife conservation programs, raising $850 million to preserve 6.5 million acres of habitat. This year, the contest for the selection of the 2014-2015 Duck Stamp will be held at Maumee Bay State Park Conference Center in Oregon, from Sept. 27-28. Judging will take place Friday, Sept. 27 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 28 from 8 a.m.-noon, when the winner will be announced. The public is encouraged to attend the event, which will include fun activities for

all ages. More information about the ceremony and events can be found at www.fws. gov/midwest/2013duckstamp. To coincide with the contest, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge will hold a dedication ceremony for the Bob Hines Refuge Ranger Station from 3-4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. Hines, an Ohio native, painted the Duck Stamp in 1946 and went on to work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for 33 years. The ranger station will honor his legacy by hosting hundreds of students each school year and connecting art and nature through environmental education and public interpretive programs. Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge is located 15 miles east of Toledo or 16 miles west of Port Clinton on SR 2. All events are free and take place at the Visitor Center unless otherwise noted.

September is a great time to sit back and enjoy the garden By J.K. DePeal Garden Writer September marks the end of the summer season and the onset of fall, which officially begins Sept. 22. As the weather grows cooler and milder, we’ll see the change in the plants, shrubs and trees. Foliage begins to change and the colors of the berries and fruits become more prominent as the leaves die back and fall. An early frost can occur in September and, if so, it will affect the fall foliage color and when it will peak in Ohio. For Ohio, the usual peak color period is from mid- to late-October. Early frosts are often mild this month and do not damage most annuals, which will keep blooming until the first hard frost. September is a wonderful time to enjoy your gardens as the tasks of weeding and watering are less demanding now and the milder weather often brings out the best in many flowers and foliage plants. With Sept. 22 not far away, the following reader questions bring up some fall interests. Q: Will the mums I plant in the fall come back next year? A: We are seeing mums for sale in the garden centers now because this is their peak time for blooming. They handle the cool fall weather well and produce some beautiful bright colors for our tired garden beds, planters and gardens. However, they come back in the spring more dependably if they are planted in the spring. To give fall planted mums a better chance of coming back, it is a good idea to cut them back when they have finished blooming and give them a good mulching after the ground freezes. Planting mums in the fall in a protected area also will help them during the cold months. Established mum plants should be divided in the spring by removing the plant, cutting out the dead center and replanting the strong outside shoots. Q: My perennials are beginning to look dry

Get Growing the day to prepare them for later planting in gardens of beds. This practice helps young plants to adjust to growing outside after being raised indoors or in greenhouses. “Hardening off” in the fall is a process that helps prepare established plants in beds, yards and gardens for the cold, harsh weather of winter. This process is accomplished by withholding water so that growing shoots can lignify (produce a tough, hard coating) so that they are prepared to better tolerate the cold. This process also stops any new, tender growth on plants.

Which ones should I cut back now and which ones should I cut back in the spring? A: Any diseased perennial should be cut back now and all of its foliage removed and destroyed so that the disease organisms will not winter over in the ground and reinfect plants next year. Phlox, peonies, and bee balm should be cut back now for this reason. Asparagus and irises can also harbor harmful insects and should be cut back now. On the other hand, some perennials add winter interest to the garden with their dried flowers, seed heads and foliage. Other

perennials, such as coneflower seed heads, provide food for wildlife and birds. Dead foliage can also provide winter cover for wildlife so it is a good idea to leave all of these to cut back in the spring. Q: I’ve heard of “hardening off” a plant in the spring but what does “hardening off” plants in the fall mean? A: The process of “hardening off” a plant in the spring is quite different than the “hardening off” done in the fall. Beginning in April or early May, gardeners “harden off” plants by placing them outdoors in a sheltered area during the warmest part of

Q: What plants can I use along with my mums for more fall color in my flower bed? A: Asters are available now and can add shades of pink, cream and lavender to your beds. Ornamental cabbage or kale is another possibility. They come in colors of fuchsia, white, cream, pink, red and yellow with outer leaf edgings of green. Peacock varieties of kale have outer foliage that is almost feathery which will add interesting texture and color to fall flower beds. September Tip: September is a great time to add top dressings (such as compost, manure, peat, etc.) to your soil but it is not the time to fertilize. Fertilizing will encourage new growth on plants that will be too weak to handle to winter weather ahead. Top dressing, on the other hand, will add nutrients to the soil that need the winter to break down and provide you with richer, more fertile soil for the plants that will need it in the spring.

Eastwood vs. Woodmore All-Time Gridiron Series YEAR EAGLES

Wildcats eye another marquee win over Eagles By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer

The Press


For any coach trying to rebuild a program, there is often a marquee win that helps to steamroll the process and turn things in the right direction. Last season, Woodmore may have notched that important win against Eastwood, defeating the Eagles, 27-20, in Week 9, giving the Wildcats hope for the future and the belief that they may have finally turned the corner. Britton Devier took over as coach at Woodmore in 2010 and, since then, has seen steady progress. He’s hoping that this is the year his club turns that corner and establishes itself among the league’s elite teams. Last season, the Wildcats improved their win total by two games and have begun this season 2-0. On top of that, they’ve won impressively, defeating Port Clinton (55-7) and Cardinal Stritch Catholic (56-6). But now is where things get interesting. Woodmore, which faced Tiffin Calvert, a 2012 playoff team, last Friday, travels to Pemberville to face an Eastwood club that will likely compete for a Northern Buckeye Conference title. In two games thus far, the Eagles have defeated powerhouse Patrick Henry (40-21) and lost a heartbreaker to another top Northwest Ohio program, Clyde (17-13). In Week 3, Eastwood hosted Oak Harbor, another quality program. Despite going 5-5 last year, the Eagles, led by 32nd-year coach Jerry Rutherford, now one of Northwest Ohio’s best-known names in prep football, are poised to bounce back and compete for a league title and a spot in the playoffs. Four of their five losses in 2012 were by close margins, an

Portage River Battle Woodmore Wildcats @ Eastwood Eagles Freedom Field Friday, September 20 7 p.m. indication that if things go their way this year, they could be looking at an eight to nine win season. Devier knows that defense is where his team will really have to perform if they want to win. “I’ve heard Eastwood is running some spread concepts this year,” Devier said. “They always have speed and it’s tough to stop an offense that has so many weapons.” Eastwood is where the Wildcats want to be — at or near the top of the conference and in contention for the playoffs every year. Defeating the Eagles could do wonders for Woodmore’s program, but Eastwood is certainly not ready to back down from their place near the top of the league. The Eagles, who operate the Wing-T offense, have thrown the ball more than usual this season. In their win against the Patriots, senior quarterback Jake Schmeltz connected on 6-of-10 passes for 108 yards and three touchdowns. Against the Fliers, Schmeltz threw for 88 yards and a touchdown.

The primary running backs for Eastwood are juniors Devin Snowden and Brennan Seifert and senior Brent Schlumbohm. Junior Grant Geiser has seen some action, scoring on a 27-yard touchdown run in the opener. Schmeltz, a three-year starter who plays cornerback on defense, says the Eagles will not take the Wildcats lightly. “(Woodmore) is a good team and has a good quarterback and some nice skill players,” Schmeltz said. “They run their offense well. Offensively, we need to execute and know what we’re doing blocking-wise. Defensively, we need to keep playing hard and swarming to the ball and make plays.” The Wildcats, who have scored 111 points in two games, are led by quarterback Jake Matwiejczyk, a two-year starter. In the opener against PC, he completed 15of-23 passes for 247 yards, spreading the ball around to receivers like Dan Sprinski, Malachi Brown and Evan Ulinski. On top of that, Matwiejczyk ran 16 times for 122 yards. Running back Tony Rozzi helped to complement the passing attack, running for 101 yards on 17 carries. Devier says Woodmore has to take that next step now. “Anytime you play a good team, it’s an opportunity to show your best,” he said. “With Genoa and Eastwood in our conference, we, along with the other schools, have been forced to get better or get beat up on.” He loves the way his team’s spread offense is getting the job done without relying exclusively on their passing attack. “We have been committed to running the ball effectively this year,” Devier said. “However, we rely heavily on our screen and quick game to move the ball. As for balance, we run whatever works. If that means we throw 50 times, we do that.”

Matwiejczyk, Wildcats having fun in up-tempo offense By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer There really is no secret to Woodmore’s up-tempo spread offense. “We try to play faster than you can line up,” coach Britton Devier said. “We’re trying to run the few plays we run and execute them better than you can defend them.” Senior running back/linebacker Tony Rozzi said the Wildcats’ offense is so fastpaced “you don’t realize how well the coaches condition you.” “The refs have had to slow us down because they’re breathing so hard and they can’t get the ball placed fast enough,” Rozzi said. “It’s fun. You don’t realize how fast you’re going. One of our scoring drives against Port Clinton, we ran 10 plays in 2 minutes, 30 seconds, and that was a 70yard drive. The coaches are the ones pushing us every day to get better. They’re really supportive and they expect big things out of us.” Woodmore (2-0) breezed through its first two games, beating Port Clinton 55-7 and Cardinal Stritch 56-6. The schedule gets more difficult beginning Friday, when the ‘Cats travel to Tiffin Calvert before opening the Northern Buckeye Conference season at Eastwood. Regardless, the Wildcats are putting up the offensive numbers they expect each week. Woodmore’s offensive starters only played the first half and the first series of the third quarter against the Redskins and Cardinals. Senior quarterback Jake Matwiejczyk is 30-of-45 passing for 453 yards and five touchdowns, and he has rushed for 210 yards and six touchdowns on 25 carries. “I love it,” Matwiejczyk said of the offense. “We have a lot of speed all around, we have a great line. Our offense is built on speed. The faster we can go, the faster we can score. We’re comfortable right now, but we can do better. We need to be better every week.” Rozzi leads the team in rushing, with 25 carries for 221 yards and three touchdowns. Senior receivers Evan Ulinski (8 catches, 104 yards, 1 TD), Malachi Brown (5, 137, 1) and Dan Sprinski (7, 107, 2) are pulling their weight. “Most of our receivers are seniors, and I’ve been playing with them since about the fourth grade,” Matwiejczyk said. “I have all the confidence in the world in those guys. I know if I throw it to them, they’re going to run the right route and they’re going to catch it.” Devier said Woodmore wanted to commit to running the ball more effectively this season out of its one-back, four-receiver set. Rozzi has become the featured back after splitting time in the backfield a year ago. “He runs hard,” Devier said. “This year he’s getting all the carries, and through two weeks he’s done a heck of a job. He’s a super kid who would do anything you ask. He’s going to go as hard as he can, no mat-

The Wildcats knew what they were going to get out of All-NBC receiver Ulinski this season. They were also expecting

big things from sophomore wideout Zach Sandwisch, who tore his ACL during a preseason scrimmage and is out for the year, but the other receivers have stepped up to fill the void. “Ulinski is the toughest pound-forpound kid I’ve ever seen,” Devier said. “He’ll play his guts out for you. Dan has been our shutdown corner for three years now, but offensively he had never blossomed. This year he’s catching the ball and running good routes. Malachi is as fast as they come. He runs track and he’s big, about 195 pounds. He started off as just our kicker, and over the last couple years we’ve stolen him from the soccer team. He’s been having a heck of a year.” The key to the offense, however, is undoubtedly Matwiejczyk, who has “looked very good so far,” according to Devier. “He’s improved in every aspect,” the coach said. “He’s naturally a great runner and he’s gotten more comfortable in the offense, and his reads are all there. He worked really hard all summer and all offseason on throwing downfield passes. That’s what we were missing last year. We never had a downfield threat. His reads in the passing game and the ability to throw downfield have seen the most improvement.” If the Wildcats are going to contend for an NBC title and their first playoff berth since 2001, they’ll have to keep up the pace on offense and continue to play good defense. The next two weeks will be a good indicator of where Woodmore needs to be. “I like how everyone just has confidence,” Rozzi said. “I have confidence in my teammates, that they’re going to do their job. I don’t have to worry about, say, our right guard, making sure he gets his block so Jake can throw the ball. I guess you could say we all believe in each other.”

Tracy Donnelly, Cardinals, getting to know each other

By Mark Griffin Press Contributing Writer

In the postseason, anything can happen. We just want to take it game by game.

After four years as the volleyball coach at Clay, Tracy Donnelly is taking on a new challenge. Donnelly became new coach at Cardinal Stritch Catholic in late July, so she and the Cardinals players are still kind of getting to know each other. “We’re a little behind the 8-ball because we got a late start,” said Donnelly, who is Stritch’s fourth coach in four years. “We started (practicing) Aug. 1 and they’re adjusting quickly. They’re starting to get into the flow of games.” After Tuesday night’s win at Northwood, the Cardinals were 2-2 and 2-0 in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference after beating Gibsonburg and losing in five sets to both Delta and Eastwood. “Our first match, against Delta, I made a few mistakes,” Donnelly said. “We had some injuries, and there is a learning curve on both sides of the court. They have to figure me out and I have to figure them out, which girls can handle pressure and which girls I can say, ‘hey, relax.’ I’m getting to that point. We’ve only been through three matches and every match is a little different.” The Cardinals return four starters and seven seniors to a team that reached the Division IV regional semifinals last season before losing in three sets to sixthranked New Washington Buckeye Central. Stritch’s returning starters are senior setter Alexa McCourt, senior middle hitters Jennifer Trumbull and Allie Heyman, and sophomore outside hitter Maggie Merren. McCourt has aspirations of playing college volleyball. “Alexa was a setter last year, so she’s kind of the quarterback and runs the offense,” Donnelly said. “She’s in charge of making sure the right hitters get the ball at the right time. She does a pretty good job and understands the game.” Donnelly said Trumbull is more suited to being an outside hitter but has been moved to the middle because of an injury. “One of the other middle hitters had a concussion early on, so we put Jennifer back in the middle,” Donnelly said. “She’s a very good blocker. Real steady and evenkeel. She’s one of those people you can go to when you need a big point.” The coach said the 5-foot-10 Heyman is the team’s emotional centerpiece.

Cardinal Stritch Catholic senior libero Caty Rieker sets for senior Kristen Zalewski (3) and senior setter Alexa McCourt. (Press photo by Doug Karns/ “She’s a person when she makes a big play, she gets excited and gets the team fired up about stuff,” Donnelly said. “She

just has that fiery attitude you like to see in your players. She gets emotional and helps lift them up.”

Merren is a “very hard worker,” according to Donnelly. “She plays all the way around for us,” she said, “kind of that person you look for to be there all the time and kind of hold things together.” Starting outside hitter Lauren Loucks, who is 5-11, is the Cardinals’ tallest player. “Lauren is one of those athletes you love to have,” Donnelly said. “She just jumps through the sky, so we have to contain her. She thinks she has to hit the ball 100 miles per hour, and she has to learn that’s not always the best way to play the game. She’s one of those people who is fun to watch, because she can put the ball down.” Other starters include senior libero Caty Rieker and senior right side hitter Kirsten Zalewski. “Caty is just all over the floor defensively,” Donnelly said. “She also had a concussion – I’ve never had a player with a concussion in my coaching career, but I’ve had two this year. She hit her head on the floor and didn’t play full time. She’s just coming off the injury, so we put her back in slowly. She’s only played about half of the rotations. “Kirsten is a lefty, so everything that comes off her hand comes off weird to everybody. She’s not a power hitter, but she’s real smart and she’s a team captain. She leads by example and keeps the ball in play. She’s a hard worker and she does a nice job blocking.” Donnelly said the Cardinals’ No. 1 goal is to reclaim the TAAC title – they finished second last year – and make it back to regionals. “I’d like to go back and make another run at regionals,” she said. “In the postseason, anything can happen. We just want to take it game by game.”

Mike Donnelly leaving Clay for St. Ursula Academy position P.J. Kapfhammer, Oregon school board president, said Clay athletic director Mike Donnelly turned in his resignation on September 10. He said the resignation, which must be approved by the board, will be on the agenda for the September 18 meeting. Kapfhammer said the school has begun a search for a new AD. “He (Donnelly) has accepted the job at St. Ursula and has turned in his letter of resignation,” Kapfhammer said. “I do believe it will be accepted.” Donnelly said, “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work and coach at my alma mater. I am going to miss the teachers, coaches, and staff that work hard every day to make our community a better place. “The job of athletic director in a large school district is difficult, stressful, and time-consuming. I want to spend a little more time raising my two daughters with my wife and working at St. Ursula will provide me an opportunity to do that.” The Oregon school board in 2007 hired Mike Donnelly as the new Clay football coach. Donnelly took over the Eagle football program from Jeff Lee, who announced his resignation after the 2006 season.

The job of athletic director in a large school district is difficult, stressful, and time-consuming. I want to spend a little more time raising my two daughters...

By J. Patrick Eaken Press Sports Editor

Donnelly began as an assistant administrator for the school district during his first two year contract with a salary of $46,000. He lives in the Oregon district and has a bachelors’ degree in chemistry from Wittenberg University. After six years at the helm of the Clay football program, Coach Mike Donnelly announced his resignation after the 2012 season. His teams went a combined 29-31, including a 7-3 record in 2008. During his tenure at Clay, his teams broke 19 school offensive records. Donnelly says the highlights of his career including coaching University of Michigan starting safety Jordan Kovacs,

Mike Donnelly who was named the Wolverine’s MVP in team voting, who picked Kovacs over Denard Robinson. He also coached former Ohio State and current Chicago Bears receiver Dane Sanzenbacher while he was an assistant at Central Catholic, where his 2005 team won one Division II state championship during a 10year stint. In 2005, he was named Assistant Coach of the Year in Northwest Ohio. Donnelly, a Clay alumnus, was also a wide receivers coach at Wittenberg University in 1997, helping a team that went 9-1 and won the North Coast Athletic Conference. He remained athletic director at Clay until this month. He spoke about his foot-

ball resignation at the Clay fall sports banquet, citing his health as one of the reasons for his decisions. “For the past six years I have had the wonderful opportunity to influence high school students’ learning and development as head football coach,” Donnelly said. “During this time, I have also taken on the role of athletic director, a job that perfectly fits my passion for athletics. Over time however, the demands and high profile positions of athletic director and head football coach have taken its toll on me physically and mentally,” he continued. “Additionally, the time spent away from my wife and children to pursue my dreams have meant missing many family functions. I have come to the decision that for the betterment of my health and wellbeing that I resign from the position of head football coach.” A 1993 graduate of Clay, Donnelly was previously the offensive coordinator at Central Catholic, where the team went to five playoffs, won two league titles, and won the Division II state championship in 2005. During the seven years with Donnelly serving as an assistant, Central teams went 61-21. In addition to the state championship, Central Catholic’s 2005 football team had 22 straight wins between 2005 and 2006. (— Melissa Burden contributed to this story)

SEPTEMBER 16, 2013

Ten local players are getting job done for Express By Nicholas Huenefeld and J. Patrick Eaken Owens Community College forward Jessica Grindle (Northwood) scored three goals and added one assist to lead the Express women’s soccer team past Mercyhurst North East, 7-0. This was the first multiple goal game for Grindle, a sophomore who had previously scored eight career goals in separate games. It was the third time in her career that she recorded at least one goal and one assist. She now has a team-high five goals this year. Her seven points mark the fourth most in a single game in Express women’s soccer history. However, the scoring was done by a list of local players that looks like a Who’s Who from the Alan Miller Jewelers AllPress Soccer Team. There are 10 former local prep players on Owen’s team that were All-Press selections at one time or another. Sophomores include Grindle, defender Tara Preble (Lake), forward/midfielder Taylor Avers (Woodmore), defender Marissa Ramirez (Northwood), and midfieler/defender Samantha Starkey (Eastwood), midfielder Kelly Zurvalec (Oak Harbor). Freshmen include three Clay recruits — midfielder Abby Groll, forward/midfielder Kendyl Christian, and midfielder/ goalkeeper Megan Soncrant. In comparison, the Northern Lakes League, considered one of the best in the state, has three players — sophomore forward/midfielder Haley Gasser (Sylvania Northview), sophomore defender Elizabeth Theaker (Maumee), and freshman defender Lacee Ortman (Sylvania Southview), so the majority of Coach Mary Whisler’s Toledo metro area players are coming from this side of town. The Express (3-2 overall) traveled to Adrian, Michigan to take on Siena Heights University’s JV team on Sept. 13. Their next home game is Sept. 18 against Cincinnati State Technical and Community College at 4 p.m. The Express offense peppered Mercyhurst North East’s goalkeeper, Olivia Shear, all day. While the Express outshot Mercyhurst 31-0, they also posted a 10-0 advantage in corner kicks. The game marked the second shutout of the season for the Express defense. Grindle got the Express out to a 2-0 lead early as she scored just 4:30 and 6:31 into the game. Later, Gasser scored her second goal of the season with just under four

(Photo by Nicholas Huenefeld/Owens Sports Information) minutes left in the first half to give the Express a 3-0 lead at the break. Gasser assisted on Grindle’s first goal, while Brittany Powell assisted on Grindle’s second goal. Gasser’s goal came when she stole the ball from a defender and lofted a nice shot over the goalkeeper’s head. In the second half, the Express continued to pressure the Mercyhurst North East defense. Their first goal of the half came when Soncrant was fouled deep in Mercyhurst territory in the 52nd minute. Theaker took the free kick and directed it into the top left corner of the net for her first career goal. The next goal came in the 60th minute when Grindle crossed a shot from the left, which Groll headed in for her first goal of the season. The Express went up 6-0 when Starkey scored her first career goal in the 64th minute. Ramirez headed the ball off a corner kick to Starkey, who delivered the shot. Grindle then drilled a laser of a shot into the top corner of the net in the 70th minute to finish the scoring. Lacee Ortman picked up her first assist on the goal. Erika Brinkman started in goal for the Express. She did not face a shot on goal in the game’s first 81 minutes before being re-

placed by Soncrant for the rest of the game. Soncrant saw her first minutes of the season in goal during this game. The backup goalkeeper spends most of her time at midfield for the Express. Theaker now has one career goal to go along with an assist she had last year. Powell and Groll now have one goal and one assist in their first year with the Express. Ramirez picked up her second career assist. Ramirez nearly scored her first career goal late in the game on a header off a corner kick, but the ball hit the crossbar and was cleared out. Against Schoolcraft College, Christian’s late goal wasn’t enough as the Express women’s soccer team dropped a 3-1 home decision. The lone goal for the Express came at the 73:21 mark when Tara Preble made a strong move against a defender to retain possession on the right sideline and made a cross to Christian, who scored her second goal in the past two games. Schoolcraft, however, had previously scored at the 14:54, 56:43 and 64:05 marks. Earlier in the season, Jill Burkholder and Haley Kreger each scored a goal as the Express women’s soccer team

Rockets’ soccer off to a fast start

By Yaneek Smith Press Contributing Writer Precision passing, great defense, excellent scorers, solid play from the goalkeeper, and a special chemistry can unify a soccer team. That’s been the recipe for success for the Oak Harbor boys’ soccer team. At 9-0 overall and 5-0 in the Sandusky Bay Conference, the Rockets are off to a start that has seen them dominate opponents, outscoring them by a combined 66-3 thus far. “The juniors we have, this is their third year with the team, and we planned ahead (for this)” said third-year coach Ken Filar. “We knew we had a good group with this junior class. We worked with the kids, got them in the varsity games as freshman and sophomores; that’s what we try to do with our training. They’ve bought into it and they’re seeing results.” That’s not to say that Filar isn’t appreciative of his seniors, sophomores and freshmen. One of his seniors, Connor Eli, who transferred from Genoa, leads the team with 18 goals and another, Derek Wood, joined the team this season after previously playing football. The other three are Trevor Hanely, David Birchall and Tate Haar, arguably the team’s best player. Last year, Haar earned all-district and first-team SBC honors. Prior to last season, Filar asked Haar to move from forward to center midfielder. The move has certainly helped as Oak Harbor’s most versatile player can now devote more time to playing defense. But that’s not to say he hasn’t been instrumental in helping the team score. In

defeated No. 11 Muskegon Community College 2-1. Grindle got her first assist of the season on Kreger’s goal. Burkholder’s goal was unassisted Kreger scored about 20 minutes into the game as the Express took an early 1-0 lead. The Express got a little revenge as Muskegon ended the season for the Express last year in the Region XII tournament with a last minute goal. In a 5-0 win over Lake Michigan College, Gasser, who missed all but one and a half games last year due to injury, scored the team’s first goal in a 5-0 win over Lake Michigan College. Gasser deposited the ball into the top right corner of the net on a shot from near the left sideline to put her team up 1-0 with 22:01 left in the half. The goal, which came on an assist from Abby Groll, would spark an offensive onslaught for the Express. Just less than six minutes later, with 16:16 left in the half, Burkholder was taken down in the box and converted the ensuing penalty kick for a 2-0 lead. With 7:24 left, Grindle put one past the goalkeeper before Brittany Powell raced down the left sideline and beat her defender and the goalkeeper for a goal with 1:47 left in the half.

fact, Haar leads the team in assists with 24. “We have a lot of team chemistry,” Haar said. “We had a couple of tournaments (before the season) and played alright and when we had tryouts, we found everybody’s strongpoint. We’re clicking, playing good ball and finishing well. “After my sophomore year, we didn’t have a center midfielder, so (Filar) dropped me back and it worked out. I adapted to it really well. Knowing that Connor was coming to fill my spot (at forward) made it easier. I worked harder knowing I’d have to be conditioned to play.” The two forwards leading the offense have been Eli and junior Andy Burnette. The second-leading goal scorer on the team, Burnette has been on a tear lately, scoring

nine goals in the last four games, including two hat tricks. The rapport on the field between Eli and Burnette is like poetry in motion. The two players are working like they’ve been passing to each other for years, and with the help of the midfielders, that regularly presents them with scoring opportunities. Filar says that in addition to having athletes with high soccer I.Q.’s, the team has chemistry and camaraderie. In fact, the team named four players, Haar, Birchall, Tim Poiry and Brandon Schimming, as captains. “Nobody ever talks about how many goals they have,” Filar said. “They’re very unselfish and team-oriented.” On the other end of the field, there are

six primary defenders — Wood, Schimming, Tyler Sievert, and James Walters with Donovan Damron and Tyler Bowlick off the bench. “(This season) has been tremendous,” Schimming said. “Everybody is team-first, nobody’s selfish. And nobody’s letting up, regardless if we’re down or up. Our goals are to get shutouts. We take tremendous pride in (playing defense) — it starts with us and we know that. The forwards thank us when they score and we prevent other teams from scoring and that helps the forwards. “Coming into this year, we didn’t know what to expect. We had a lot of new people and there were some departures from last year. We just want to try our best and we’ll never give up.”

Genoa back Casey Gose running past, through defenses By Jeffrey D. Norwalk Press Contributing Writer

Genoa senior back and split end Casey Gose tries to look past Oak Harbor sophomore defensive back Kalob Vargas (23) as University of Wisconsin-bound 6-foot-5, 308 pound Genoa offensive lineman Mike Deiter gets in position to block. The Comets routed the Rockets on their home field, 63-7, as Gose scored four times. (Press photo by Harold Hamilton/ have to play for each other for good things to happen.

In a contest that featured Genoa running back David Nutter, Oak Harbor back Andrew Heberling, and Genoa ball carrier Jake Wojciechowski, it seemed fitting there was a bolt of lightning at this year’s “Celestial Bowl.” In this 41st meeting between Genoa and Oak Harbor, the lightning came courtesy of 5-foot-10, 174 pound G-Town senior Casey Gose, who scored four touchdowns. He runs the 40 in 4.44. He’s got nimble feet, makes a lot of people miss, sees the field and uses his smarts to make decisions, which goes along with a 3.389 GPA. Gose ran all over the host Rockets’ field on his way to scoring four touchdowns in the Comets’ 63-7 win, which helped Genoa improve to 2-0, take home the 2011-2013 “Celestial Ball” trophy, and improve to 17 wins in the all-time series. Oak Harbor leads with 24 wins. “The Celestial Bowl definitely means something. It’s a huge, huge rivalry, and a huge momentum game and it just always feels good to play great against a rival,” said Gose, a 17-year-old wide receiver, defensive back, return man, and all-around X-factor for the Comets “These two schools are so close. The rivalry has been going on for awhile now. And the atmosphere…it’s just incredible. I just think it’s a great game to be a part of,” added Gose. Coach Tim Spiess said, “Casey Gose understands you only have one opportunity to be a high school student-athlete, and he’s taking full advantage of this opportunity. His kickoff return against Oak Harbor was pretty special. He is a gifted competitor who brings his best every night.” As one of Genoa’s emotional leaders, he is the latest in a line of Gose gridders who have worn the maroon-and-gray. That line includes father Mike (1989) and uncles Johnny (‘87) and Dan (‘98), all of whom starred at wide receiver and defensive back. “It’s really special for me to carry on my family’s name, but I also play for the many, many other guys who have come before me and worn the Comet uniform,” Casey continues, “and I love to go out there and lay it all on the line for my teammates, too. Because I know I get the same thing in return from them. And you’ll get that exact same response from everyone else on this team, because we believe football is just not an individual sport, and that you have to play for each other for good things to happen. “And while I’d love to leave Genoa with a (championship) ring,” he adds, “my goals are to just keep being a leader, and making sure the job gets done for the team on the football field.” The Comets’ lethal special teams units are certainly getting the job done so far this year, and Gose is one element. “For the past several seasons, we have coached special teams with as much passion as we do our offense and defense,” Spiess said. “If you are lucky enough to be on our special teams units, you are guaranteed a lot of important playing time. Cody Pickard is a special player for our special teams. Nick Wolfe is an outstanding short and long snapper. Wolfe, Tyler Rozek, and Jake Wojciechowski have been extremely important to our kickoff and punt teams. The players just understand the importance of special teams.” One of Gose’s scores came off the Rockets’ first punt of the game at the 9:51 mark

of the first quarter, which Gose fielded at about mid-field, danced with for a step or two, and then turned on the after-burners down the home sideline, toting the rock for the night’s first six behind a textbook escort of blockers. His second TD came nearly 22 minutes later, this time on a 78-yard kickoff return, after he gathered in the Rockets’ offering to start the second half at his own 22, showed his veteran poise to let the play develop, and then outraced the entire Oak Harbor coverage team through an alley — this time down the visitor’s sideline. About midway through the first half, Gose scored his third touchdown when he took the rock in from about 12 yards out for an easy run. Later, he made one of the prettier plays of the night look that much prettier, when he caught a 47-yard strike from senior quarterback Logan Scott, and proceeded to outrun the defense to pay dirt again. “Honestly, Logan made one of the best plays of the night,” says Gose. “He started scrambling, and a defender had him, but he shook him off, and threw me a great pass on the run. I was only open because everyone thought he was going to be down.” Gose maintains that it was his punt return that put the biggest smile on his face.

“I think that punt return set the tone for the whole game and was a huge momentum swinger for the whole team,” interjects Gose. “But I’ll tell you, I couldn’t have asked for better blocking on that return because everything hit just right, at just the right time. “I personally think that special teams are one of the most-important things in a football game because they can be such a huge momentum swinger,” he adds. “Kick-

ing is huge, punting is huge, returning is huge…and I think any game can come down to the little things like that. “As a team, we put a lot of time into special teams practice. We do them every day during the week, and I’d like to give a shout out to our phenomenal (junior) kicker Cody Pickard and really everybody who plays special teams for us,” says Gose. “Without all 11 guys out there on the field doing their jobs, nothing good could happen.”

This Week in Government County opts to reduce tax collections By Larry Limpf News Editor For the third time since 2000, the Wood County commissioners have opted to reduce tax collections of a levy that funds the adult and protective services programs of the county’s Job and Family Services Department. The commissioners have requested the county budget commission reduce the levy collection by half for 2014 – an estimated savings for taxpayers of $1.86 million. The commissioners said the JFS staff has been “extremely responsible” with expenditures covered by the levy. The commissioners asked the budget panel to forgo collecting the millage entirely in 2011. In other business, the commissioners announced the completion last week of a new restroom on the first floor of the county office building that complies with the American with Disabilities Act. The new restroom is located between the board of elections and emergency management agency offices. The office building was constructed in 1976 – prior to the passage of the ADA. Loan backed by county The Ottawa County commissioners have approved a loan agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation for financing a hangar renovation project at the Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport. The county will be the guarantor for the project in the amount of $985,750.
