Local man earns group’s newest honor BY JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher The Board of Trustees at the Ottawa County Community Foundation recently named Lawrence J. (Jack) Schiller as the organization’s first Trustee Emeritus. Schiller has been a trustee of the Foundation since its inception in 2000. Did I mention that Jack Schiller is a lively 102 years old? In addition to living through two World Wars, which should be enough for just about anybody, Schiller has

compiled an extremely impressive dossier of highly prestigious offices and has been an eyewitness to history on more than one occasion. First, he began his career in agribusiness in 1932 with the Hayward Company. He founded the American Dehydrators Association and during WWII, served as an army officer helping to convert manufacturing plants to production of dehydrated food for U.S. troops overseas. Schiller served as a special envoy to Russia for the People to People pro-

gram begun by President Eisenhower in the 1950s. He joined former Ohio Gov. James Rhodes on a number of trade missions to Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and China. In addition to his highly successful business career, he has been an avid yachtsman, pilot and is a charter member of the Oak Harbor Rotary Club. He and his wife Judy established a Dyslexia Fund through the Ottawa County Community Foundation to benefit local students in need of help. He also provided

the matching funds when the Oak Harbor Rotary decided to have its scholarship program administered through the Community Foundation. Still, at 102, he can be found at his office most days and still enjoys stints on a tractor. As Trustee Emeritus, he will continue to assist the OCCF through is vast business experience as well as his leadership. According to fellow trustee, Dave Martin: “he is a little slow getting around, but his mind is as sharp as a tack!”


Rally for the Kids


Revelers at the Round House Bar Sunday afternoon raise a glass to the Whiskey Light. The neon sign sits above the front door of the Put-in-Bay watering hole and remain aglow throughout the 2011 tourist season. Satoshi Shinagawa, far left, Jim Keys and Takayuki Kakito stop for a photo during the festivities. Shinagawa and Kakito, both from Japan, are in the U.S. doing automotive work in Ann Arbor, Mich. The pair was told not to miss Put-in-Bay during their visit to the region and listened. They, along with Port Clinton native Jim Keys, their translator for the trip, hit the island Sunday to take in the tradition. For more pics from the party, or to post your own, visit or

Ottawa County CASA and Joyful Connections, in conjunction with the International Chili Society, present the first Rally for the Kids April 30-May 1. The event will be held in Bassett’s parking at the corner of Ohio 163 and 53. At least 30 chili cooks from six different states, including two past world champs, will compete in three categories: salsa, chili verde and red chili. In addition, there will be a “Trunk Show” where anyone and everyone can rent a parking space and sell their wares from the trunk of their car. This is a cross of a flea market, garage sale, art sale and vendor sale. The cost of parking space for two days is $30 with additional spaces priced at only $15. The first-ever 5k run/walk, presented by Magruder Hospital’s Lake Erie Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, is planned for Sunday morning with prizes for the top male and female finishers in the adult and child categories. The cost to participate is $20 for adult, $10 for children under 13 and teams can participate at $50 for 3-5 members. Sponsorships are being sought for the race. Bassett’s Market is generously sponsoring a “Grocery Shopping Spree.” Tickets are $5 a piece and the winner will be drawn on Sunday for a 3-minute shopping spree. There will be food, beer and fun at the Rally for the Kids and all proceeds will benefit two local non-profit organizations that are helping serve children in crisis in Ottawa County. For information, contact Connie Cornett at Ottawa County CASA at 419-301-0225 or Sheila Powell at Joyful connections 567-262-3181.

The students have volunteered to clean up James Park, Radar Park and the cemetery. Thank you students.

The annual performance of the Westhuizen Duo will be 4 p.m. Sunday, April 17, at Hayes Memorial United Methodist Church in Fremont.  Pierre van der Westhuizen and Sophia Grobler, husband and wife, have become regular participants with Terra’s Community College’s Music on Sunday series, presenting exhilarating performances for regional concert-goers. As a duo, they have performed across the U.S. and South Africa, where they also teach master classes. Their interest in new music has led them to premiere numerous works by young South African and American composers. They were the first piano duo to receive fellowships as Young Artists at the prestigious PianoTexas International Academy and Festival (formerly the TCU/Cliburn Institute), as well as Shouse Artists at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, where they shared the stage with artists such as Ann Schein, Wu Han, Jeremy Denk and James Tocco. Their performances were heard on WGTE (Toledo), Radio sonder Grense and ClassicFM. They were featured as guest artists at the Volksblad Arts Festival, Grahamstown National Arts Festival, Northwest University (Potchefstroom) and the University of South Africa UNISA Concert Series in South Africa, as well as OSU/Port Clinton Arts Festival in Ohio, the “Music at Covenant” series (Cincinnati), Firelands Concert Series, Lakeside Summer Music Festival, and St. Mary’s College in Indiana. They were featured on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series in Chicago, which was broadcast live on NPR and PBS, and have just finished recording the complete works for two pianos by Poulenc, which has been released by AMP Recordings.  For information, call the department of music at 419-559-2233.

Edgewood Manor’s Select Therapy receives 2010 Chairman’s Award Edgewood Manor Health & Rehabilitation Center’s Select Therapy, owned and operated by Covenant Care, has received the 2010 Covenant Care Chairman’s Award. Select Therapy and Edgewood Manor are operated by the same parent company however, are managed as two separate entities. To qualify for the Covenant Care Chairman’s Award, a rehabilitation center must meet the following criteria: operating as a model rehabilitation department which embodies all Select Therapy philosophies, demonstrates full integration into the goals of the facility, mentors other rehabilitation departments throughout the corporation, be the provider of choice for therapy services in their market place, and to be the employer of choice in their community. Only one rehabilitation team is recognized in the Covenant Care Midwest Operational area. Edgewood Manor’ s Select Therapy met all of the above criteria and will be presented with its 2010 Chairman’s Award at the Select Therapy Annual Awards held in California in March. Accepting the award is Beverly Norton, Facility Rehabilitation Director. “This award symbolizes the hard work and commitment from our therapy team,” said Norton. “With everchanging requirements from Medicare and private insurance we face many challenges, but our team has overcome them and have continued to provide excellent therapy outcomes. It is a great honor to be recognized for our accomplishments.” The Chairman’s Award is even more exciting this year as Edgewood Manor also won the Chairman’s Award for clinical success and excellent quality of care. “We have a great rehabilitation department in our facility,” said Lori Lieb-Opfer, executive director of Edgewood

Danbury’s Fetzer to be honored this week Joe Fetzer, who has served as Danbury High School’s athletic director and girls basketball coach, will be inducted into the Toledo Area Athletic Conference Hall of Fame. Fetzer coached the varsity girls basketball team at Danbury from 1993-2003. In those 10 years, the Lady Lakers won six TAAC championships and three of those teams finished the regular season ranked in fi-

nal Associated Press Poll top 10. In 1998, Fetzer was named the Northwest Ohio District 7 Basketball Association’s Coach of the Year, and in 2001 he led the Ohio Team in the Ohio-Indiana All-Star Game held in Fort Wayne, Ind. Fetzer also served as Danbury’s athletic director from 1998-2009 and was TAAC president for four years. During his tenure as the athletic director,

Danbury added girls’ golf to their list of sports, and the TAAC grew to its present size. He has also coached JV baseball, JV boys basketball and middle school track. Fetzer will be inducted into the TAAC Hall of Fame on Thursday, April 14, at Brandywine Country Club in Toledo. Fetzer has been a teacher and coach at Danbury for the past 23 years. Fetzer is also being inducted

into the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Honor on Sunday, April 17, with a special ceremony at Capital University during the All-Ohio North-South All-Star Games.   He joins the first-ever class of 15 to be inducted into the Hall of Honor. This honor is to recognize contributions of non-coaches to the OHSBCA. Fetzer has served

as the Northwest Ohio District 7 Basketball Coaches Association secretary/treasurer for the past 10 years. The NOD7BCA represents more than 120 basketball coaches in Northwest Ohio. In that time, Fetzer has been instrumental in coordinating the distict’s web page, the introduction of online voting for district awards and the growth of the district’s awards banquets and all-star games.

week for Land Lab Learners

The Land Lab Learners of Carroll School got a visit from Carol Benner of the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District this week. These students range from first to fifth grade and volunteer to be a part of this great “class” that meets during recess at Carroll School and is lead by Heather Dewitz. The group gets together weekly to work out in the land lab or to do educational activities. This week they learned about watersheds, particularly the Portage and Toussaint Watersheds that drain into Lake Erie. A watershed is where water above the

ground and below the ground drain into a body of water, in our case, Lake Erie. Using an “enviroscape/watershed” model, Benner showed the students how poor environmental management of factories, homeowners, farmers, golf courses and construction sites can make our Lake Erie a polluted mess. Topics covered with the students were point and non-point source pollution, invasive species, erosion and how the Soil and Water Conservation District works with farmers and urban landowners to take care of their land through better management.

achieving financial goals

If you’re purchasing a new home or refinancing your existing one, you’ve got some mortgage-related decisions to consider. And since your mortgage may well be the biggest financial transaction you ever make — and one that can affect your long-term financial goals, such as retirement — you’ll want to weigh your options carefully. What types of choices might you face? Here are some of the most important ones: • Fixed or adjustable? With a fixed-rate mortgage, your payment will remain the same throughout the life of your loan. However, if interest rates drop significantly below your mortgage rate, you may then be paying too much for your loan and will have to go through the time, effort and expense of refinancing. With an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), your initial rate is likely quite low, so you can afford a bigger mortgage. This could be an advantage if you know your income will be rising or you are confident you’ll sell your house within the next five years. However, your ARM payment and interest rate can rise substantially, even with caps in place, and these adjustments can affect your cash flow. So, before taking out an ARM, make sure you understand the terms

involved and how they will affect you down the road. • 15-year or 30-year? These aren’t the only mortgage lengths available, but they are among the most common. The advantage of a 15-year mortgage is that you’ll pay it off quicker and, in the process, potentially save thousands of dollars in interest. The disadvantage, of course, is that you’ll likely need to come up with much bigger monthly payments than if you took out a 30-year mortgage. And since your mortgage payments will be lower with a 30-year loan, you’ll have more money available each month to invest for the future. Over time, these extra investments can really add up. Suppose, for example, that you invested $100 a month to a tax-deferred vehicle, such as a traditional IRA, that earned a hypothetical 7 percent average annual return. After 30 years, you’d end up with a little more than $117,000, before you started paying taxes on withdrawals. But if your 30-year mortgage freed up enough cash for you to contribute $300 a month to that same IRA, earning that same 7 percent average annual return, you’d accumulate more than $350,000 after 30 years, before taxes . That’s a big difference — and the extra money could

perk up your retirement lifestyle considerably. Keep in mind, of course, that these examples don’t reflect the performance of any available investments. Also, you will have to pay taxes when you start taking withdrawals from a traditional IRA, and any withdrawals you make before you turn age 59½ might be subject to a 10 percent penalty. • Larger or smaller down payment? The bigger your down payment, the smaller your monthly payments, and the more you may have available to invest each month. But if you go with a smaller down payment, you most likely will initially have more money available for other purposes, such as paying down debt or purchasing investments. You’ll have to compare the alternatives carefully. In fact, you’ll have to compare the options for each question we’ve looked at because mortgage issues have an emotional component as well as a financial one, and only you can make the decisions that fit your situation. So think about your choices today, as they can have a big impact on your life tomorrow.

Safety Council Rebate Program expanding COLUMBUS — Stephen Buehrer, administrator/CEO of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, has announced the continuation and expansion of the Safety Council Rebate Incentive Program, which allows employers to earn rebates on their workers’ compensation premiums for participating in their local safety council and reducing workplace injuries. The incentive program, which was due to expire soon, allows participating employers to receive a 2 percent rebate for attending a specific number of safety council programs, and an additional 2 percent for demonstrating a reduction in the fre-

quency and/or severity of workplace incidents. Under Buehrer’s proposal, the program will not only continue, but also will be expanded to allow group-rated employers to participate in safety councils and earn a 2 percent performance rebate for demonstrating improvements in workplace safety. This would be in addition to receiving their group rating discount. “We know that those employers who are most active in taking control of their safety programs are the most successful in preventing claims and managing workers’ compensation costs,” Buehrer told 1,400 employers and workplace safety profession-

als attending the general session of BWC’s 81st annual Safety Congress & Expo. “I believe good safety programming ought to be good for all employers across the state.” Buehrer noted the savings potential is significant, providing an additional opportunity to reduce overall premium costs for nearly 100,000 Ohio employers allowing them to direct those resources into business growth and job creation. He also stated that he will soon present the proposal to the BWC Board of Directors for their advice and consent. BWC’s Division of Safety & Hygiene sponsors more than 80 safety councils across the

state that are organized by local safety-minded groups to inform participants of new safety techniques, products and services, and provide a thorough knowledge of topics, including occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation and risk management education. BWC is a non general-revenue fund state agency that provides workers’ compensation insurance for 230,000 Ohio employers and covers approximately twothirds of Ohio’s workforce. With approximately $2.1 billion in annual premium and assessment income, BWC is the largest state-fund system in the United States and one of the
