CRYSTAL BOWERSOX: WELCOME HOME

rocker chick with dreadlocks and a well-used guitar has arrived to offer distraction, escape, entertainment, fun and hope. Crystal Bowersox is sexy-cute in the way only Midwest American women are. She is identifiably one of us. She has the tough background, the earned humility, the work ethic and the pure sleevesrolled up determination that thrives and replicates in the less tony areas of our city. She has earned her shot at fame and fortune, working in the city’s bars and clubs, honing her skills, wringing the ups and downs of her life into every nuance and inflection of her voice. Toledo needs the attention and positive vibe Bowersox brings. As she continues her march to the “Idol” finals, the stakes on her shoulders grow, not just for her personally and professionally, but for an entire city. No pressure, Crystal, but we need you. You’re making us proud, and you have no idea what that means to us. — Michael S. Miller

LIGHTING THE FUSE PUBLISHER’S STATEMENT

Crystalmania

No-confidence vote

T

here’s an old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” In Lucas County, we’re fond of saying, “If it is broke, don’t fix it.” The Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) found itself in under a cloud May 4 Election Day, when an employee posted a comment on Facebook that indicated she knew how one innocent citizen voted. Credit the BOE for acting quickly, investigating, firing the employee and assuring the public of the integrity of the process, but this latest imbroglio is just the latest in a long line of controversies, oddities and questionable practices at the BOE. The people with the authority to make changes at the BOE, elected officials, Thomas F. POUNDS don’t seem to be in a hurry to fix the system, probably because they rely on its weirdness to ensure their own continued success. The county prosecutor, when faced with BOE issues, would rather play hot potato and pass them along. An investigation into BOE leadership needs to be conducted, before any more controversies, questions or integrityshaking incidents occur. Consider this incomplete list of reported unresolved and unaddressed abnormalities: ■ 90 absentee ballots sent to one individual’s home ■ Multiple central committee candidates on the ballot who are registered to vote at vacant homes ■ More than 50 central committee candidates certified to the ballot, despite committing fraud on their nominating petitions ■ Prosecutor declines to prosecute individuals who admitted to multiple felony forgeries ■ Ohio Republican Party refused to comply with state law when the central committee voted to disregard the law and not recognize chairmanship of Jon Stainbrook or Jeff Simpson ■ Elected central committee members physically barred from entering a Lucas County GOP meeting ■ BOE deems it OK to own a home in Dayton and work there for more than four years and vote in Lucas county elections. It is no secret, from the back rooms of Lucas County to the Secretary of State Office in Columbus, that Lucas County election processes are a mess. While we recognize BOE oversees a Byzantine, understaffed and overworked process, there is no excuse for the authoritative body of the electoral process to appear to be so unstable. Leaders from Columbus to One Government Center need to take a long look at what is wrong and how it can be fixed, before an election-altering incident further undermines confidence in one of our most important governing bodies.

At some point, all this love and adoration will invert itself; media loves to build up, and media loves to tear down. Tidbit sniffers like People Magazine have historically used local Rosencrantzes and Guildensterns to dig for dirt, and there is no question something from Bowersox’s past will eventually dig itself out of its grave and shamble after her; global fame and fortune does not erase past mistakes, it just increases the number of people willing to expose them for their 30 pieces of silver. Bowersox’s schedule for her “hometown visit,” named with Toledo in mind although she has been incontrovertibly clear she is from Elliston, would drive many people to a hospital bed. Here, just days before one of the most important singing performances of her life, Bowersox is being asked to perform for television, radio stations, ride in a parade, sing at Downtown’s Levis Square, appear in-store for sponsors, travel to the Ottawa County Fairgrounds for a “Bowerstock” concert, then hustle back to Toledo to sing the National Anthem at the Mud Hens game. It evokes the manic intensity of “A Hard Day’s Night,” in which The Beatles sprint from one stage to another, from one plane/train/car to another, from one hotel room to another. And her real journey, the quest to remain above all the hype and exploitation, hasn’t truly started. Bowersox is a young woman who has surmounted many tougher challenges than anything TMZ has to offer. It will be fascinating to watch her career unfold and to chronicle how much of a role Toledo/Elliston will play in her life. We celebrate Crystal Bowersox, even as we exploit her. We exploit Crystal Bowersox, even as we celebrate her. As her fame grows, may we at least keep equilibrium in our efforts, and never let the scales fall out of proportion. Michael S. Miller is editor in chief of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star. E-mail: mmiller@toledofreepress.com.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

TARTA must streamline before sales tax is implemented TO THE EDITOR, In the current economic downturn, all publicly funded entities have seen a decrease in revenue. The county, cities, local school systems, the library and the Metroparks are all facing challenges with their budgets. We read about the above agencies eliminating positions, outsourcing services, streamlining services and negotiating new contracts with bargaining units. TARTA is facing the same challenges. But has TARTA streamlined? No. In fact, it wants more money via a countywide sales tax to expand its services. My job takes me to all parts of Lucas County during the day and I continually see empty buses or full size buses with one or two passengers on the roads. Why does this service of empty buses need to be expanded? Ridership fees account for less than 21 percent of TARTA’s total revenues. TARTA is looking to the citizens of Lucas County to fund their money losing operation. To accomplish this, Lucas County must join TARTA and the current nine members must unanimously agree to accept Lucas County as a member. A 0.5 percent increase in the sales tax will make Lucas County one of the highest rates of sales tax in the State of Ohio. This will take an additional $8.4 million of spendable

income out of the pockets of Lucas County citizens. Additionally, TARTA will collect the proposed sales tax and the current property tax for six months, in effect, double dipping. Perrysburg and Rossford have indicated that they will opt out of TARTA if the sales tax goes into place. This will make Wood County businesses more attractive to shop, eat and receive services. I am not anti-TARTA. I believe TARTA is an important service in the county. I do believe that before TARTA asks for more money (25 percent increase in current budget), it must first further streamline its operations, increase ridership fees, negotiate higher medical and insurance co-pays with its bargaining units and move to more fuel efficient buses to accommodate the current level of ridership. To date, it has done none of these. I have asked for financial information multiple times from TARTA (public records requests) and have been ignored on each request. Based on the above reasons, I would strongly encourage the member communities to not accept Lucas County in as a member of TARTA. CHUCK HOECHERL, Monclova Township Trustee

Poet’s death ‘great tragedy and loss’ Autism TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR krapin@toledofreepress.com

Rane Arroyo, a poet and UT creative writing professor, died May 7 of a cerebral hemorrhage. “His death is a great tragedy and loss for poetry and Puerto Rican literature in the United States,” said Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes, a Latino studies and Spanish professor at the University of Michigan. Arroyo was a mentor to La Fountain-Stokes, who said Arroyo was generous with his fellow writers and poets. Arroyo visited La FountainStokes’ classes for presentations. “He was an incredibly funny and warm person who was gifted as an artist. He had an ability to translate his experiences as a gay man and a Latino from Chicago, and the experiences with his family and with his partner. He was able to translate all of that into poetry that was accessible and that was in the grade of the great American and English poets,” La FountainStokes said. La Fountain-Stokes said Arroyo used his poetry to share his experiences as a gay and Latino man in the United States and show that Latinos have something to say in American Literature. “In the U.S., where gay and Latino people have been looked down upon, his work is very pertinent for our political atmosphere,” he said. Arroyo began teaching at UT in the fall of 1997. He taught creative writing and literature and served as a board member of The Association of Writers and Writing Programs. “He has been one of the most respected and loved professors of creative writing in our department. A gifted poet, he was our colleague and we will miss him very much,” said Sara Lundquist, English department chairwoman. John Dorsey, a local poet, author of “Teaching the Dead to Sing: The Outlaw’s Prayer” and a Toledo Free Press contributor, said, “I can remember first being handed the work of Rane Arroyo, not long after I moved to the Toledo area in the winter of 2003. There was a mutual respect between us that I have felt with very few poets since. I am not alone in my admiration, having crossed paths with many who have held his life and his work in high regard, including the editors of the online magazine Blood Lotus, who counted him as one of the primary inspirations for the publication’s founding.” Arroyo was recently named a Distinguished

University Professor, UT’s highest honor for a professor, Lundquist said. “He was a wonderful poet. I think that his stature as outspoken courageous gay Latino poet is quite extraordinary,” said Joel Lipman, a fellow English professor and Lucas County’s first poet laureate.

The author of 10 poetry books, seven published plays, a book of short stories and 10 performed plays, Arroyo also won an array of writing awards. His distinctions included the John Ciardi Poetry Prize, the Carl Sandburg Poetry Prize and a Pushcart Prize. “He certainly was an enormously productive, well-published poet,” Lipman said.

The Northwest Ohio Mortgage Brokers Association is hosting a celebrity bartending fundraiser in honor of the Autism Collaborative. The event is aimed at raising money while promoting autism awareness, said Jim Burnor, Northwest Ohio Mortgage Brokers Association board member. “I thought it was a good way to give back and promote autism awareness,” said Burnor, whose son was recently diagnosed with autism. “And I had the power to do that.” The event is May 20 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Bar Louie in Levis Commons in Perrysburg. The Autism Collaborative at Toledo Children’s Hospital is a collaboration among area organizations including Toledo Children’s Hospital, Harbor, UT, BGSU, The Great Lakes Center for Autism, The Autism Society of Northwest Ohio and The Autism Model School. “These funds will lay the groundwork. Help us find what services are missing in the Toledo community and help us in creating those services,” said Molly Long, executive director of Toledo Children’s Hospital Foundation. Autism affects one in every 94 children and one in every 70 boys, Long said. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. Free appetizers and discounted drink prices are available.

RESTAURANTS

Table Forty-4, opening May 18 Downtown, will provide live entertainment and quality food that won’t break the bank. “People should come and check out Table Forty-4 because it is going to be a fun place, high quality food and service, yet affordable menu prices range between $6 to $12 all day long,” said owner Hisham Zriem. The restaurant will offer a wide variety of food from soups and salads to steak and seafood, he said. The menu offers crab cake and calamari appetizers as well as turkey, portabella mushroom, chicken and pastrami sandwiches. Also the owner of the Maumee Chop House on Holland Road, Zriem decided on the name Table Forty-4 because the restaurant will feature 44 tables and a patio section. Seating will accommodate between 200 and 250 people. Inside the restaurant is an open floor plan and large bar. Some walls are bare brick and feature pictures

of early Toledo. The wooden floors and ornate ceiling are original to the building, said Jim Mettler, a spokesman for the restaurant. A raised fireplace can be seen throughout the restaurant, as well as exposed piping. The indoor/outdoor patio features garage doors that open onto Monroe Street and provide views of Fifth Third Field. The patio area will serve food and is expected to seat up to 40 individuals. Zriem plans on the restaurant being a memorable experience adding to the flourishing entertainment scene in Downtown Toledo. Due to its proximity to Fifth Third Field, the SeaGate Centre and Huntington Center, Table Forty-4 is a prime location to add to the Toledo nightlife, Zriem said. The restaurant is only a stone’s throw away from third base and will feature live entertainment on some weekends. “We’re looking forward to opening this restaurant near the ballpark,” Mettler said. Table Forty-4 is located at 610

Rave officially takes over National Amusements By Brandi Barhite TOLEDO FREE PRESS ASSOCIATE EDITOR bbarhite@toledofreepress.com

Free refills on large popcorn and drinks are among the changes at Toledo area theaters because of Rave Motion Pictures. The Dallas-based company took control of the former National Amusements-owned Showcase and DeLux branded theaters the week of May 9. The official legal transaction was in December. “I have been in the business for 30 years, actually grew up with National,” said Rusty Belcher, general manager of Franklin Park 16. “It is a big cultural change, but for the good.” Rave plans to increase the number of digital projectors and 3-D installs, some of which will be ready by the June 18 premiere of “Toy Story 3” at

Fallen Timbers, which does not have 3-D capacity. The company prides itself on being able to show multiple 3-D movies at one theater. “It is going to be a big summer for movies and a big summer for the continuation of 3-D,” said Jeremy Devine, vice president of marketing. Before Rave bought the Toledo theaters, 100 percent of its theaters were digital. “It’s the perfect picture, no pops, no scratches and allows you to bring in alternative content — opera, sporting events,” Devine said. Belcher said Rave’s goal is “every patron, every day.” He worked for National Amusements. This ultimate customer service will be achieved by greeting moviegoers when they come in and when they leave and asking for feedback, Belcher said. In addition to free refills, which Belcher said “is going to be huge,” Rave is changing

beverages to Coke products. Rave is also offering a summer film festival at Franklin Park and Maumee for children and their parents. The movies play at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, starting June 8. “I know that people are starting to think, ‘What am I going to do with the kids this summer?’” Devine said. “The movies are about 1-year-old, but kids get to see them on the big screen and they are free and kids like to see movies again and again.” The movie “Alvin and the Chipmunks 2” will play June 8 and 9; “Ice Age 3,” June 15 and 16; “Astro Boy,” June 22 and 23; “Planet 51,” June 29 and 30; “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” July 6 and 7; “Monsters versus Aliens,” July 13 and 14; and “Hotel for Dogs” will play July 20 and 21. “We are very excited. It is a big change. The focus is on the customers as it should be,” Belcher said.

Devine said Rave kept much of National Amusement staff, although changes were made to management. “The best thing for the consumer is that we had a very nice partnership with National Amusements,” Devine said. “On purpose, we did nothing over Christmas and New Year’s because we wanted patrons to have a smooth experience.” In the next few weeks, Rave will change the signage at the movie theaters. Devine said patrons will need to visit www.ravemotionpictures. com because the National Amusements site will no longer work. At the website, moviegoers can sign up for an e-newsletter and read about field trips and group rates. Meanwhile, Devine said the company continues to evaluate prices to see if anything needs to be changed.

Two local school districts are hoping to win grant money from Pepsi, but need the community’s help. The cost-free fundraiser takes just one click of the mouse each day. Bedford High School and Springfield Middle School have entries in the Pepsi Refresh Project, which grants funding to a number of organizations each month. Bedford is eligible for a $250,000 grant to construct a new weight room. Springfield is up for a $25,000 grant for a set of world culture projects and a $50,000 grant for a math circus project. “Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan deserve corporate investment like this,” said Rebecca Regnier, an 13abc reporter who is helping with Mule Muscle, a sports booster program, in Bedford. With the economy and tough times hitting everyone, the schools have looked for alternative ways to raise money for projects. Bedford’s small workout room isn’t providing enough space for gym classes and the athletes to use and its wrestling room is located in-

side the football locker room, so the school has turned to the refresh project for construction funding. “In the weight room students are shoulder to shoulder, it’s almost to the point of unsafe. We can make a better facility and we are going to turn the old weight room into a brand new wrestling room and utility room,” said Jeff Wood, football coach and teacher at Bedford High School. The new weight room will also function as a Pilates, dance and martial arts room for students’ physical education classes, Wood said. With the larger facility to use during the school day, the hope is that students are turned on to an active lifestyle. Springfield Middle School has already received two Pepsi Refresh grants this year. One grant has allowed the school to purchase robots, Smartboards and digital cameras to teach robotics classes. The other grant allowed for a travel through time project in the social studies department, with more Smartboards purchased as well as costumes for students to use. “The most notable improvement these grants have allowed is it helps with technology and putting equipment in the kids hands,” said Matt Geha, principal of Springfield Middle School. The teachers at Springfield Middle School found

the program themselves and entered the school to win, Geha said. With the two new projects, Springfield is eligible for the district hopes to further educational opportunities in the classroom. “The impact of our campaigns to win the Pepsi Refresh Everything grants has extended far beyond securing much needed funding for technology and learning materials.  The campaigns have exposed our students to the importance of voting for something that you believe in,” said Kathryn Hott, superintendent of Springfield Schools. “It has allowed them to combine their critical thinking skills with their creativity to get their teachers, classmates, parents, business leaders and members of the community involved.” Voting lasts through the month of May. Once registered at www.refresheverything.com an individual can vote for up to 10 projects a day. Bedford and Springfield are voting for each others projects and encourage the community to vote for all three. To vote, visit: www.refresheverything.com/ sms mathcircus, www.refresheverything.com/ worldcult ure and www.refresheverything.com/ mulemuscle.

MARILYN LEVINE AND BEN RODGERS OF THE TOLEDO BBB WITH JIM NOWAK OF JIMAGES INC., SEATED.

BBB offers ethics training program By Duane Ramsey TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

The local Better Business Bureau has developed a program to educate business people and students about ethics that is being used locally and across the country. “In Pursuit of Ethics” is a hands-on, interactive training program created to encourage in-depth discussions about ethical issues in a classroom setting, according to Marilyn Levine, foundation director for the local BBB. “There’s nothing like it for businesses to use for educating employees about ethics. It’s interactive and gets people involved,” said Dick Eppstein, president of the BBB for Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. “Any business organization or educational institution can use it for teaching ethics,” he said. “I can’t take credit for it. We just told our people we needed a tool to teach ethics.” The concept for the ethics program was created and researched by Levine and BBB staff working with local people in different industries. “In Pursuit of Ethics” was produced by the BBB with James Nowak of Jimages, Inc. of Toledo, who shot the video and edited the program. Ben Rodgers, BBB information technology specialist, wrote the code and script that makes the interactive program work with a randomization feature. “We wanted to be on the cutting edge of technology,” Levine said. “We chose topics and wrote scripts for people facing ethical choices where the audience makes the decision that determines the random paths the

video will follow. It keeps the program fresh and interactive.” The ethics program explores five different scenarios dealing with ethical dilemmas anyone might encounter, such as automotive repairs, banking, insurance, retail, and remodeling businesses. The BBB is currently working on new segments about education, health care, real estate, and other possible topics to add to the program, Levine said. The Professional Remodelers Organization offered the ethics training to its members as part of their continuing education. One of its members, SMB Construction hosted a training session for local insurance agents for their continuing education because the firm specializes in insurance restoration, said Jim Mossing, president of SMB. “It’s an excellent program for continuing education credit,” said Mossing, who will become chairman of the board for the BBB May 13 at the Torch Awards. Levine said the BBB introduced the ethics training program at the annual meeting of the International Council of Better Business Bureaus last October. Many Better Business Bureaus in cities across the country are using the program including Atlanta, Cincinnati, Youngstown, St. Paul, Minn., Little Rock, Ark., and numerous other U.S. cities, she said. Levine attended the Torch Awards ceremony in April for the Ft. Wayne Better Business Bureau, which based its 2010 campaign on the In Pursuit of Ethics program offering it to members, she said. Owens Community College is partnering with the BBB to promote

ethics in education by including “In Pursuit of Ethics” in its business outreach program and adding it to its curriculum. Owens just started offering the program as customized training for companies and organizations through the business outreach program, said Carl Dettmer, manager of program development in the Workforce and Community Services Department at Owens. Dettmer said the partnership involved Owens working with the BBB to develop the certification standards required for facilitators to ensure quality instruction for the program. “I would strongly recommend it to any business that wants to educate their people about ethics,” said Bob Kazmierczak, operations manager for AAA Car Care Plus in Toledo. Kazmierczak knew about the program when it was under development as some of the scenes for the automotive repair segment were filmed at one of AAA’s local shops. He originally used the program training workers from Caterpillar at Owens. He later recommended it for use in the Technology in Society class he teaches at Owens that deals with diversity, ethics and professionalism. “Students found it fun to go through the training because it’s so interactive and they liked how real the situations were. It gave them the opportunity to think about those situations and make decisions for ethical solutions,” Kazmierczak said. The “In Pursuit of Ethics” training program is available to individual companies and organizations at a cost of $795, which includes the video presentation, a facilitator’s manual and a marketing DVD.

Lettuce recall expands; FDA investigates E. coli (AP) — A recall of romaine lettuce that has sickened students with E. coli poisoning is expanding as the government tries to find out where the contamination occurred. The Food and Drug Administration said a food distributor in Moore, Okla., is recalling romaine lettuce. Ohio-based Freshway Foods announced a 23-state recall of romaine lettuce related to outbreaks. At least 19 people have been sickened.

An insider’s perspective on organ donation W e’d like to believe we’re equipped to handle even life’s toughest challenges. We like to think that if we’re prepared enough, schooled enough, experienced enough, that we’ve got what it takes to enter any situation and handle come what may. And it’s true enough. Preparation, schooling and experience all weigh in on whether we are able to meet and overcome adversities. But there are some situations, those life and death matters, where no amount of pre-anything can fully ready a person to deal with the intensity and aftereffects of such highly charged moments. Case in point: Procurement coordinator of Lifeline of Ohio, Jeffrey Blitz, encountered just such an intersection. After only four months in his position at Lifeline, Jeff (then only 30 years old) had to meet with the parents of a 7-month-old infant girl who had died from complications originating from a respiratory illness.   Two days before Thanksgiving, this young couple was traveling during the holidays when their daughter contracted an illness that took her life only five days later. Within the confines of his responsibilities, Jeff had to

Brain death can occur when individuals suffer from a stroke or hit her head and considerable swelling takes place. Think of it as a “brain in a box.� Our brains are encased in a bony structure and when the swelling can’t be controlled, the brain has nowhere to go but into the spinal column. This is called herniation. The brain and brain stem move all the way down and cut off all the arteries so there’s no room for any blood flow back to the brain. After this happens, doctors will do testing to confirm brain death. Once brain death has been declared, the families will be approached for their consent and permission to begin the testing process for organ transplantation. After consent is given, the procurement coordinators will initiate the process of evaluating the patient for possible organ donation. This process will include chart reviews, comprehensive types of testing for organs determining heart/lung/liver/kidney function and eventually a 30-page patient medical/behavioral history questionnaire must be filled out before an organ is entered into the system for possible matching with an individual awaiting an organ.

The now prospective donors will have their blood pressure and heart rate monitored closely to ensure the organs stay at peak condition while awaiting a match with a recipient. Fluids and various drugs are now administered to make certain each organ is oxygenated and the organs are kept in optimal health during the transition. Jeff confers with the appropriate transplant surgeons during the entire process as well. After all the necessary testing is completed, Jeff enters the information into the database that opens up to a 500-mile radius surrounding the area if no match is found in his city. He “offers� the organs to three doctors within the database one at a time and in 1, 2, 3 order (usually within an hour) each surgeon will say yes or no. Jeff continues to work down his list until he has a taker. Immediately upon receiving a positive response, Jeff must then work on getting the organ to the transplant surgeon. Depending on the organ and the location of the recipient, these precious gifts are sometimes transported by air.   The organs are packaged carefully and given to the transplant team where it takes each donation and prepare it for the transplant surgery. Once the actual handover of the organ has taken place, Jeff files paperwork  and subsequent follow-ups with the donating family are scheduled. Counselors are also working with both the family of the deceased patient and the recipient of the organ to answer questions, receive support and acting as liaison between the families and the medical staff. Generally, the donating family will receive an update approximately six weeks after the transplant takes place. In some cases, when both families are interested in meeting, facilitators will arrange a private conference perhaps a year later. As Jeff notes, organ recipients are above all very grateful for this gift of life, but they also carry tremendous guilt knowing they lived because another person died. It takes time and lots of emotional and mental work to prepare to meet the loved ones who might still be grieving the loss of their family member and not all recipients choose to meet, it is strictly voluntary. ■ ORGANS CONTINUES ON A17

We have all been through ups and downs, so I encourage people to follow their dreams, enjoy the journey and boost their ego when they accomplish a goal.” To help athletes of all skill levels achieve their enrichment, Elite Endeavors host 10 events throughout the year in various areas of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.

reportedly the oldest triathlon and duathlon in the country. The event is open to all individuals, 3 to 14 years old, taking place at Olander Park and split into three divisions. The 3 to 6-year-olds participate in a fun-run of 0.4 miles. 7 to 10 year olds can compete in a triathlon consisting of a 100yard lake swim, 3.1-mile bike and a 0.6-mile run or a duathlon of a 100-yard run, 3.1-mile bike or a 0.6-mile run. In the 11 to 14 age division, the tri-

athlon is comprised of a 200-yard lake swim, 6.2 mile bike and a 1.2 mile run. The duathlon is a 200-yard run, 6.2mile bike or a 1.2-mile run. “The satisfaction is in touching the lives of kids and creating a better quality of life for them,” Jim said. The elation of Elite Endeavors comes from the pride Jim and Joyce witness from the competitors’ accomplishments. “It’s very satisfying to see the joy and exhilaration people have at the end of the race, feeling fit and knowing they did better than they thought they

did,” Jim said. Joyce added, “It’s almost spiritual to a degree.” Elite Endeavors’ next event, XTerra Last Stand Triathlon and Duathlon, will commence May 23 at 9 a.m. in Ft. Custer State Park in Augusta , Mich., which is near Battle Creek. Distances for Xterra’s triathlon are 0.5-mile swim, 12.5-mile bike and 4mile trail run.

Stroke St k AAwareness May is National Stroke Awareness Month and a perfect time to learn more about this devastating disease. Stroke, the third leading cause of death in the United States, occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it starts to die. You can’t change some stroke risk factors including age, gender and family history, but you can change those that result from lifestyle or environment. High blood pressure is the leading cause of stroke and the most important controllable risk factor. Other risk factors that you can change, treat or control include: smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, poor diet, physical inactivity, obesity, carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease, atrial fibrillation, other heart disease, and sickle cell disease. If you are age 50 or more and have some of the conditions listed above, screenings are available to help determine your risk factors for stroke and other vascular diseases. Contact your health care professional or Jobst Vascular Center at 800-39-JOBST for more information. Source: American Stroke Association

Nurses celebrated for making a difference every day thing. Every acuity, every age — which I love — I feel like we get to see it all. It’s a great challenge,” she said. In March, Clere was part of a mission trip to Haiti. Clere organized the two week mission for her church, Hope Lutheran, and used her medical background to help locals. “We saw a lot of post-earthquake injuries. Healing takes so much longer to heal without proper stitching,” she said. “We saw a lot of different types of injuries and influx of people in a very crowded community.” The trip was Clere’s second mission to Haiti, she said. The mission visited the village of Ouanaminthe, Haiti, and stayed in a school. The first week a surgeon performed five to six surgeries a day, and the second week a dentist saw approximately 25 patients

Nurses play an important role in a patient’s well-being and during the recent National Nurses Week they were recognized for their efforts. “I think nursing is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference. I think every day is vital and very important,” said Nita Clere an emergency room nurse at The Toledo Hospital. Clere has spent the last 23 years in the ER and 32 years working at Toledo Hospital. Clere said she explored pediatric nursing, urology and floated around the hospital before ending up in the ER “In the ER you get to see every-

daily, she said. Many materials came from the ER’s program Mission Hope, which recycles unused surgical materials that would otherwise be thrown out, she said. Clere thinks National Nurses Week is a great way to honor nurses who excel. “It’s an opportunity to honor nurses that achieve higher goals,” she said. One nurse being honored during The Toledo Hospital’s and Toledo Children’s Hospital’s Excellence in Nursing ceremony May 5 is Barb Wilder-Mack. “It’s really nice ... to be recognized makes you feel like you’re being honored. If you’ve been a nurse for a while it’s nice to have that,” Wilder-Mack said. “When you’re younger, you try to emulate older people. All of a sudden, it seems like I turned around and everyone is younger than me. Things like that really add up. It’s really nice, it’s big honor for me.” The mother of four has worked as a nurse for the past 33 years and can’t remember a time she didn’t want to be a nurse, she said. Wilder-Mack floated around the hospital, served as a pediatric nurse and is now a charge nurse in the pediatric ICU at Toledo Children’s Hospital. “In peds, you get to see a very fast recovery. In peds, you’re coming into a very bad situation. It’s extremely bad when parents are here and they’re under a lot of stress and you’re helping to make it a little better,” she said.

Wilder-Mack said she likes to work more of her shifts in a row because she feels its beneficial for the patients and unit. “I like continuity,” she said. “I worked the weekend and did today. I’m probably only person here who knows what happened all weekend long. That’s very beneficial for the unit, and the patient, I think.” Wilder-Mack helps with new employee orientation, assists nursing students, volunteers at the hospital’s free clinic and at Mud Hens games, she said. In addition to the Excellence in Nursing Ceremony, which recognizes 11 nurses, The Toledo Hospital hosted special education seminars and recognition programs for its nurses during National Nurses Week, which was May 3-7.

desire to see a new world, to give hope, to find a cure, or alter a situation is the heart of philanthropy. The dictionary tells us that the word “philanthropy” comes from the Greek, meaning literally “to love humanity.” The expression of philanthropy has as many variations as there are human beings. It can manifest itself by obvious outward acts of kindness or simply be a prayer for a better tomorrow. Each of us has a unique set of resources; we come from different backgrounds with Cynthia ROEPKE varying value systems. Our formal education, work ethic, cultural heritage, religious beliefs, etc., blend together to form the individual: one unique human being with one unique message and gift. What we all have in common is that our resources are limited. There are only 24 hours in each of our days. Our budgets are typically tight. For the most part, our wisdom and ability to communicate such is nominal. There are billions of us walking on the planet with exactly the same restrictions. Each of us will define sufficiency differently, but ultimately it begins with the recognition that we are finite beings with limited resources. Managing those resources — time, wisdom and wealth — is what we’re all about. Whether it is a new car or how much sleep you get each night, a realistic definition of “need” is a critical step toward achieving financial well being. How you allocate your resources is a reflection of your priorities. How you spend your time, what you think about, where you shop, how you vot, all of these things belong to you, are your life and are limited. Priorities can be simultaneous rather than always being sequential. The opportunity to make a difference is available every day. Philanthropy is simply the act of living aloud. It is realizing your significance and sharing yourself with the world. One hundred years from now — what is your greatest wish for society? Cynthia Roepke earned the professional designation of CFP, awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. She is a wealth management advisor in Fifth Third’s Private Bank.

Two of the area’s leading commercial printing and graphic companies became one when Flying Colors Press became a division of H.O.T. Printing & Graphics, effective May 1. H.O.T. has grown into one of the largest full-service printing, graphics, and direct mail companies serving Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan in the past 35 years. The addition of Flying Colors Press to the family-owned business is the ninth acquisition of competing printing companies by H.O.T. during the past two decades, according to Greg Shapiro, president of H.O.T. Printing and Graphics in Northwood. “We’re fortunate to continue growing. We’re survivors to be one of the only printers left in the area,” said Shapiro. “We’re excited to welcome Flying Colors Press to the H.O.T. family. The merger positions us for even more growth by providing additional choices and production efficiencies with more in-house resources for our clients.” “The joining of our companies designates us as the leader of the industry for the printing and communications needs of the Toledo area,” said Mike Glinski, former owner of Flying Colors Press, who will continue working in a sales capacity with the major accounts he already represents. “After 45 years in the business, I am pleased with this venture and look forward to working under the H.O.T. name,” said Glinski, who purchased the assets of the former Paramount Printing and started Flying Colors Press in 2002. H.O.T. continues to expand its extensive printing capabilities with the acquisition of Flying Colors Press and its 14,000-squarefoot facility on Albion Street in Toledo. H.O.T. gains larger Heidelberg presses and equipment, expanded bindery, advanced die-cutting, specialty finishes, more assembly, direct mail and fulfillment options.

The family business serves existing clients such as BGSU, UT, Owens Community Colleges, local advertising agencies, nonprofit organizations, small businesses and Fortune 500 corporations. One of the new clients is Ben Richmond of Richmond Galleries in Marblehead who is known for photos of lighthouses. The production of his limited edition prints requires the high-quality equipment H.O.T. has, Shapiro said. Investing in advanced technological services has always been a priority at H.O.T., he said.

It expands our capabilities to print bigger and higher quality projects,” said Myron Shapiro, vice president of H.O.T. H.O.T. was founded as Shapiro’s House of Type by Inez Shapiro, mother of the three sons presently running the family business, Greg, Myron and Norman. She started the business in the basement of their home in 1976, providing typesetting for ad agencies, corporate art departments and other clients. Greg joined the business in 1978 after graduating from UT and working in sales for Roadway Express in Detroit. His brothers Myron and Norm later joined the family business.

RETIREMENT GUYS

Is it time to signal Mayday? O

n the afternoon of May 6, we saw the biggest point drop in history on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, a nearly 1,000 point plunge in minutes. That night we told local investors, young and old, what to do in our interview on WTOL-11 news during the 11 p.m. newscast. We could sum up the day and our interview in two words: “be prepared.” Luckily, on May 6 the stock market

skyrocketed on news that the European Union was going to provide bailout money to Greece and other troubled places in the European Union. We watched the news closely knowing that a failed swift and immediate response to Greece’s problems could have created an even bigger problem here in the U.S. markets. Yet, is the promise of bailout money just smoke and mirrors? Consider the fact, that according to

sources like www.CBSMarketWatch. com, nearly 90 percent of those promised funds come from a non-existent account. That’s right, now they don’t even have an account with the money they promised. It sounds like a game of musical chairs to us. The game played as a kid when you and a bunch of other Mark people walked around the line of Nolan chairs and there weren’t enough chairs for everyone. Someone had to lose and it all depended upon someone else suddenly turning off the music and the person without a seat at the end of the game, lost. It’s amazing how quickly kids figure

it out. Nolan’s son, Andrew, at the age of 6 knew the deal and got second place at his friend Jackson’s birthday party. But, for the rest of us, this isn’t a game, it’s real life and real money. So how many investors have figured it out? The secret of winning is a bit of skill and a little luck. Go slow when the music is playing CLAIR and a chair is right in front of you, then BAKER move fast when there isn’t a chair to sit in. The game would be so much easier if a bell rang out when a few seconds were left, a Mayday if you will. A Mayday is defined as “an internationally recognized distress signal.” Imagine how better off everyone

“My heart needs me to know my numbers” “I’d heard about ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol, but I never had my levels tested. When my aunt passed away from a heart attack, I learned heart disease is killing more women than any other disease. I needed to pay more attention to my heart.”

Do you “know your numbers” such as your cholesterol and blood sugar levels? They all can cause heart disease. Mercy knows women’s hearts are different than men’s, and so should you. Talk to your doctor about how you can manage your risk. Call 1-888-987-MERCY for a Women’s Heart Action Kit, including a free pedometer.

would be if we were able to ignore the noise and only focus on the facts. Unfortunately, most of our politicians and those around the world won’t sound the Mayday bell any time soon. They want us to believe things are getting better. Yet, a smart investor can still filter out the noise using the right tools by looking at the signs. Younger investors should continue to save and invest for the future. Once an emergency account is set up with about three to six months worth of income, add money to a retirement account. Check to see what the company match is in the 401(k) plan and make sure to put in enough to get the free match. If the company doesn’t offer a match in the 401(k) plan or for money above the match, look at adding money to a Roth IRA to build tax-free funds for retirement. Stay the course, and don’t worry too much about what is happening with your long-term money. Retirees need to pay more attention to the risk and return of their accounts. Complete or ask a financial professional to complete what we call an Ulcer Index on the current holdings. This analysis will show an investor what the maximum loss was in the portfolio during the last five years. Look at risk in both percentage terms and also in dollar figures. For example, a 25 percent loss may seem acceptable until investors realizes that this would be a $100,000 loss on a $400,000 account. Once the Ulcer Index is done, an investor who aren’t comfortable with the results should have a discussion with their financial professional about how to update the portfolio with results that are more in line with their overall risk level. It is important to do this now while the economy is doing better than a year ago, because investors can make more rational decisions than in a panic mode. Remember do it now, and don’t be stuck being the person without a chair when the music stops, because it will eventually stop. Got a question for The Retirement Guys?

FRANKIE MAY AND CRYSTAL BOWERSOX AT NAGOYA IN DECEMBER.

Bowersox drew crowd for Japanese restaurant Before becoming a top 3 finalist on “American Idol,â€? Crytsal Bowersox played different venues around the area; she appeared every Sunday at Nagoya Sushi Bar and Japanese Steak House. Mel Ayers, owner of Nagoya, described Bowersox performances as “very interactive.â€? “Everybody loved her. She has a great following locally. You’d often see the lounge packed on a Sunday night,â€? he said. “People would be at the bar or eating at the hibachi tables and hear her and come over. By the end of the evening inevitably, the size of the group would double.â€? Ayers and his wife Barb have known Bowersox since August and are proud of the things she’s accomplished, he said. “Whatever Crystal achieves, through ‘American Idol’ or her music career or her role as a mother, she deserves all the accoladesâ€? he said. The Ayers visited Bowersox in March. Despite Bowersox’s limited free time the Ayers were lucky enough to visit with her for awhile. “I know she will be excited through the course of the show for people to visit ‌ she really worries about people having a good time,â€? Ayers said. To Bowersox, friends and family are very important, he said. Ayers hopes to see Bowersox when she plays at Huntington Center in the fall. “The way she blends in with the entire group, she tends to embrace everyone and be everyone’s mom. You can tell they get along really well, it’ll be fun to see everyone as a group,â€? he said. — Kristen Rapin Our Warren Thomas Communications Special Offer

PEOPLE

By Chris Schmidbauer TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPORTS EDITOR cschmidbauer@toledofreepress.com

Last week was a difficult one for many baseball fans in the Toledo area. Ernie Harwell, famed radio broadcaster of the Detroit Tigers, passed away at the age of 92 after a bout with cancer. Harwell was the voice of summer to many who used to hang on his every word as he described the sights, sounds, and events of Tigers baseball. Toledo has its own icon and voice of summer. Frank Gilhooley has been a part of Toledo Mud Hens baseball and local sports in the Glass City for 60 years. “Frank has been an icon in the broadcasting industry in this town,” said Joe Napoli, Mud Hens president and general manager. “He is undoubtedly one of the all-time greats to pass through the broadcast booth.” On May 16, the Mud Hens, the International League and Toledoans will honor Gilhooley at Fifth Third Field with the inaugural “Spirit of the International League Award.” Prior to the Hens game, an on-field ceremony will honor the legendary broadcaster for his career. “For Frank to receive this award makes our entire organization extremely proud,” Napoli said. “We are just so happy and there are no words that can express how proud we are that this award will bestowed to Frank.”

Broadcasting beginnings When a young Gilhooley returned from another long basketball tour as a member of the Toledo Jeeps, he had some much unexpected news waiting for him at home. “My mother told me that the owner of the Mud Hens, Red Smith, had called and he wanted to have

lunch with me,” Gilhooley said. Shortly before the baseball season began, the Milwaukee Braves needed a minor leagues affiliate. Because Toledo had the facilities available and no team to use them, the Glass City was the obvious choice. Gilhooley, unsure what Smith would want, met him at a restaurant at the corner of Detroit and Monroe. “Red told me he needed an announcer,” Gilhooley said. “I just looked at him and said, I have never talked into a microphone before in my life. Red just looked back at me and said, ‘Well you’re going to start.’” Gilhooley was no stranger to the game of baseball. His father, Frank Sr., had played in the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. His father roomed with Babe Ruth during his playing days in Boston. During his childhood, Gilhooley was a batboy for the Mud Hens, and he spent his summers taking in America’s pastime during his father’s playing career and later as a manager. Frank Jr. was no slouch on the diamond either. Gilhooley played baseball and basketball at the University of Notre Dame and he was a part of many Harlem Globetrotters tours as a member of the Toledo Jeeps, an allstar team that was assembled to take on the Globetrotters. But watching the game and calling one on the radio are very different, so Gilhooley took a crash course in broadcasting with Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame radio announcer Waite Hoyt. “In those days, after spring training broke, the teams would play exhibition games against one another in towns as they worked their way back up to their home cities,” Gilhooley said. “Detroit and Cincinnati were playing a series in Richmond,

Ind., and Red sent me over there to learn some tricks of the trade.” Gilhooley observed the series, studying Hoyt’s styles and techniques. “He was such a great announcer,” he said. “During one of the games, he looked up at me and he said, ‘I haven’t told you much because I started out like you did with no experience, but I will give you some tips’,” Hoyt told Gilhooley three key rules that were like gospel to him during his entire broadcasting career. “He told me I could never say the score enough, to never criticize the organization, and you can talk too much,” Gilhooley said. “When I got back to Toledo I made sure I remembered all three of those things.”

Frank Gilhooley to be honored for storied career

Seasoned veteran Gilhooley worked as an announcer for the Hens several different times, but he also called games for many other sports. The Toledo native called games for the UT basketball teams coached by the legendary Bob Nichols, BGSU basketball with Hens broadcasting partner Jim Weber and Buckeyes football. “I got to see some really great games and teams play during my time in the booth,” Gilhooley said. “I was a part of the Woody and Bo days of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry and Bob Nichols’ Rocket teams were always a joy to watch.” Gilhooley also served as the sports director at 13abc for more than a decade. He was a part of both evening broadcasts and he also went in the field to cover sports figures when they were in town. “That was a good time, but I always enjoyed the radio a little more than the TV side of it,” he said. “I didn’t mind the field reporting, I was never a fan

MAY 16, 2010 â&#x2013;  GILHOOLEY CONTINUED FROM A24 â&#x20AC;&#x153;They always would try and get me to try taking the pole down,â&#x20AC;? he said with a chuckle. Even as he got older, Frank never forgot TFD, and he made frequent visits to Station 1 and Station 5 in Downtown Toledo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always stopped in and we would banter back and forth with each other,â&#x20AC;? Gilhooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would put on a pot of coffee for me and we would share stories.â&#x20AC;? Gilhooley is so close with many of the Toledo firefighters that he was named an honorary firefighter in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a wannabe fireman as a kid,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and even to this day I still am. They are a great organization and I have many good memories from them.â&#x20AC;?

Mud Hen for Life After retiring from 13abc in 1987, Gilhooley was invited to join longtime play-by-play announcer Jim Weber in the broadcast booth for the Mud Hens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had known him for awhile, and we were both born and raised in Toledo, so we clicked right away,â&#x20AC;? Weber said. For 21 years, the duo called many games together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figure that we have called over 1,500 games together,â&#x20AC;? Weber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that anyone worked with Frank calling games as much as I have over the years.â&#x20AC;? Bill Clark, a St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jesuit graduate, has taken Gilhooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair at the ballpark since 2008.

one of his boyhood idols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have known Frank since I was a teenager in high school,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank and my mother went to grade school and high school together, and when I wanted to get into the business, she ran into Frank and he let me come in every Friday and help put together the sports broadcast at WTVG. So heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a mentor to me.â&#x20AC;? Jason Griffin, Mud Hens director of public and media relations, said Gilhooley eased his own transition, when he moved to the Mud Hens from the Toledo Storm organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a 28-year-old kid and I was kind of intimidated to be calling games with two of Toledoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most iconic announcers,â&#x20AC;? Griffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But as soon as I met them, all that went away; Frank was kind and welcoming. It has been a real pleasure working with them.â&#x20AC;? Since being diagnosed with a heart ailment in 2007, Gilhooley has been prohibited by his doctor from calling Hens home games on a daily basis. Weber said at first it was tough for the broadcast team to adjust.

Visit www.toledofreepress.com m â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see someone almost every day, like Frank and I did, it becomes part of your routine, like breathing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a legend when I started with him in 1987 and he is even more of one now.â&#x20AC;? Despite his inability to make it to Fifth Third Field on a daily basis, Gilhooley is on the minds of many. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made sure he has a segment during every pregame show,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was very important to everyone here that he still has a part in our broadcasts.â&#x20AC;? Griffin said Gilhooley is welcome to occupy his chair and call a game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is always going to be a part of the organization,â&#x20AC;? Griffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is always welcome when he would like to do a game because he is such a legend in this town. It is very important to us to make sure he is always included.â&#x20AC;? Gilhooley is thankful for the run he has had with the Hens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mud Hens have been so good to me over the years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worked with some great people like Jim [Weber], Jason [Griffin], Bill

[Clark] and Joe [Napoli]. Those were some of the best years of my life.â&#x20AC;?

Spirit of the IL When Randy Mobley became the president of the International League in 1991, he always wanted to create an award. Mobleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea was to honor those who have enriched the experience of International League baseball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award was something I had in the back of my mind for awhile,â&#x20AC;? Mobley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had many awards NAPOLI that recognized staff and players. But we never had an award for those people whose involvement in daily events helps enhance the minor league baseball experience. But it never really materialized.â&#x20AC;? A call from Napoli and Griffin helped make Mobleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they called and were looking for a way to honor Frank, I thought this might be something to move from the back burner to the front burner, and we came up with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Spirit of the International Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; award.â&#x20AC;? Gilhooley will be the awardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural recipient and Mobley thinks that there is no better person to receive the first award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank is a guy people recognize, and he has been enhancing the experience for Mud Hens fans for so many years. We could not think of anyone else who deserved this award more than him,â&#x20AC;? Mobley said. Napoli agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the proper way to respect everything that Frank is about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank embodies the spirit of all the things that you love about sports. He is a great storyteller and he is so passionate.â&#x20AC;? The award will be presented by Mobley. Gilhooley said he is humble by the honor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels nice to be the award winner and I am thankful to the selection group for choosing me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they mustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been scraping the bottom of the barrel looking for a recipient,â&#x20AC;? he said with a smile. Gilhooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award represents a fitting end to a phenomenal career, summed up best by his pupil Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a mentor and a friend to so many people in this city,â&#x20AC;?

Source: GM wants to re-enter auto financing DETROIT (AP) — General Motors Co. executives want their own auto-financing arm so they can offer more competitive lease and loan deals, according to a person briefed on their plans. The executives want to buy back the auto financing business from the former GMAC Financial Services or start their own operations, said the person. A top GM executive has told dealers about the plans, the person said. GM sold a 51 percent stake in GMAC Financial Services in 2006 when it was starved for cash. The new owners, led by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP, ran into trouble in 2008 with bad mortgage loans and had to be bailed out by the federal government, which now owns 56 percent of the company. Earlier this month, GMAC changed its name to Ally Financial.

HP2g LLC of Napoleon, which designed the HP2g hybrid engine, is terminating its agreement with Revenge Design, Inc. for the establishment and operation of HP2g certified installation and service center franchises in the U.S. “We have to move forward with setting up certified installation and service centers in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan because we have people who want our engine in their vehicles,” said Doug Pelmear, CEO of HP2g and inventor of the technology for the engine that could get 110 miles per gallon. Pelmear informed Peter Collorafi, president and CEO of Revenge Designs in Decatur, Ind., of his intention to move in another direction due to the lack of response to various memos and letters of intent regarding the agreement. Under the terms executed more than a year ago, Revenge Designs was to become the principal franchisor of all HP2g installation and service center franchises in the U.S. Pelmear said that HP2g now intends to act as its own franchisor for all installation and service centers worldwide. He declined to comment on plans for any installation or service facilities in Ohio and Michigan.

“He’s caught up in getting his car off the ground,” Pelmear said about Collorafi and his lack of action regarding the franchise agreement. Pelmear said the termination of the franchise agreement should not affect plans to use his HP2g engine in the Verde Super Car that Revenge Designs is developing for sale to consumers. The vehicle was introduced at the International Auto Show in Los Angeles in December, according to previous reports. Collorafi said that he was not surprised by Pelmear’s notice regarding the termination of the franchise agreement as it has been forthcoming for some time. “He couldn’t deliver the plans for the engine so we had to consider other options,” Collorafi said. Revenge Designs announced its withdrawal of all support and funding to HP2g on May 12 due to numerous requests for third party validations to the claims of its 110 MPG hybrid engine. The company received no response to its requests for documentation, Collorafi said. Pelmear reported that he intends to file for international patents on the technology for the HP2g engine on May 14. Collorafi said they were informed by Pelmear that the patents were in place in late 2009. Collorafi reported that Revenge Designs will proceed with plans to produce muscle cars with the fuel-ef-

ficient GM 638-hp engine and Ford’s super-charged 605-hp engine that get about 30 mpg. He said Pelmear’s hybrid engine was the third option for them. Pelmear said that he is working with the U.S. Department of Energy to apply for a grant that would help fund the startup of a facility to manufacture the HP2g engine. Pelmear and Collorafi met with officials from the Regional Growth Partnership (RGP), Rocket Ventures and

potential investors in Toledo earlier this year. But Pelmear was unwilling to share the technology for his HP2g engine at that time. Investors are reluctant to invest in something unless they have some details about the product or technology in which they are investing, according to Greg Knudson of Rocket Ventures and RGP. Collorafi wanted to thank the Henry County Commissioners, officials from the Regional Growth

Partnership, Rocket Ventures and the Ohio Department of Development for their efforts to find funding for a facility in Ohio. He said they were told funding was not available this year. Collorafi said they are talking to other states, including Michigan and Indiana about funding for a facility to develop and produce the vehicles by Revenge Designs. The company is in the process of securing the extensive funds, reported around $100 million, needed for the project.

ENERGY

Miller Boat Line becomes first to use biofuel By Brandi Barhite TOLEDO FREE PRESS ASSOCIATE EDITOR bbarhite@toledofreepress.com

On a calm day, some passengers on the Miller Boat Line can actually smell the change. Some think it smells like freshly popped corn; others liken it to butterscotch. Actually, it is a new biofuel mix made from soybean oil and ethanol that is supposed to save on engine wear and tear, as well as be better for the planet.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really wanted to head toward a greener fuel, something that was not only more efficient with our engines, but we wanted to leave a greener carbon footprint,â&#x20AC;? said Julene Market, one of three owners of the boat line. Market said the company is the first to use a 10 to 20 percent biofuel mix in one of its passenger vessels, the William Market, and has plans to use it in all four of its vessels. The biofuel, G2 Diesel, is manufactured by 11 Good Energy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an Ohio proud story â&#x20AC;&#x201D; soy-

beans are grown in Ohio and the biofuel is manufactured in Canton,â&#x20AC;? Market said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On behalf of 11 Good Energy, I would like to thank Miller Boat Line for their proactive commitment to environmental consciousness,â&#x20AC;? said Frederick C. Berndt, CEO of 11 Good Energy in a statement. Using G2 Diesel costs the company more than traditional diesel, but fares remain the same. G2 Diesel does not affect the speed of the vessel, either.

Market said Miller Boat Line ferries make daily trips from Marblehead to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Island. In addition to passengers, the ferries can carry freight and vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We run from the time the ice breaks up on the lake, until winter conditions prohibit us from running,â&#x20AC;? Market said. With summer approaching, Market reminds tourists that Miller has free parking, including overnight parking. At www.millerferry.com, the company website offers coupons for visitors to use when they arrive at their destination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking forward to a great season this year,â&#x20AC;? she said.

A30 â&#x2013;  TOLEDO FREE PRESS â&#x2013;  THE DRIVE CONTINUED FROM A29 Almost without exception, each stop features sparkly clean restrooms and beautiful groundsdesigned, planted and maintained by local master gardeners. Midwesterners may take them for granted but to judge by the reactions of our occasional foreign visitors, the rest stops are one of Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best kept tourism secrets and everyone who works on them should get a massive â&#x20AC;&#x153;shout out!â&#x20AC;? Arriving at the cabin on a Wednesday, two days after our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ican-do-everythingâ&#x20AC;? caretaker had been there to turn on the water, light the furnace and check for any winter intruders...there was still plenty for us to do. Like mowing. And picking up sticks. And pine needles. And checking up on our nearest yearround resident neighbors. But job No. 1, as always, was replenishing the larder. At the end of each season, we give

away all perishables and canned goods (temps go way below zero up here near the 45th parallel) so the first order of business is a run to Glenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supermarket in Mio and the Amish store on Kittle Road for bags of baking flour and hard to find spices. Wednesday is also Karaoke night at Ma Deeterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Log Cabin Inn, where the steaks are just $2.99 and the atmosphere is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pure (Up North) Michigan.â&#x20AC;? But this year there was a certain sadness in the air â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as longtime owner Ray Tweedly had died in February at his Arizona winter home. Some 70 people jammed the American Legion Hall that Saturday to pay respects. It was a casual, community, chatty affair. There were pitchers of beer. And food. And gooey homemade desserts. Bandanas talked to ball caps. Hunting boots to NASCAR jackets. After an hour or so of neighboring,

Barely holding back tears, she managed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a very good man. Thank you all so much for coming. Now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eat.â&#x20AC;? We slipped out into a cold and

rainy afternoon, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help thinking that Ray, sitting at some celestial bar, would have liked what he heard, taken another pull at his Bud Light, tipped back his signature cowboy hat and hummed another country tune.

SUMMER EVENTS 2010

By Brent Daggett TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Some people may think of the band Deep Purple when they hear the title “Smoke on the Water,” but a local nonprofit is using the phrase to promote its altruistic contributions. For the third year, the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the Red Cross is hosting its Downtown ribs event, July 30 through Aug. 1. “I’ve always worked for a nonprofit organization. It’s ingrained in my being,” said Jodie Tienvieri, communications manager for the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the Red Cross. “Any time we can educate the public on what we do and how we serve is wonderful for us. It doesn’t matter if we are running an event or having classes, just as long as we are helping somebody.” Funds from the fundraiser provide residents of Lucas, Ottawa and Wood counties with disaster preparedness

and response, health and safety education and aid to families that have members in the military. According to Tienvieri, the 2008 event raised $28,000 with $49,000 collected in 2009. “The satisfaction comes from helping the Red Cross meet their TIENVIERI mission,” said Chris Kozak, communications and community relations manager at Columbia Gas of Ohio, the event’s major sponsor. “People call at their greatest time of need and Columbia Gas is proud to help the red cross raise funds to achieve their goals.” While raising funds is integral to providing assistance to all who need a hand, Smoke on the Water also offers a plethora of entertainment to engage patrons of any age.

Famous Dave’s Legendary Pit BarB-Que eating contest will commence at 6:30 p.m. July 30. This involves 10 contestants having 10 minutes to devour as much of a three-pound serving of pulled pork they can stomach. The winner will receive a prize package worth $500. Smoke on the Water also has a riboff; the judging for the event is Aug. 1. The categories are People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice awards. Judges’ Choice consists of a panel of local media personalities and community leaders, who will score the vendors ribs on taste, sauce, texture and appearance. If that is not enough to send taste buds into a tizzy, the music of The Polka Floyd Show, Kentucky Chrome, Melanie May, Kentucky Headhunters, Gin Blossoms and Mini KISS will provide the entertainment. Dan Zawisza, chairman of the entertainment committee for the event, said, “We try to get a variety of music that appeals to the majority and bring in family friendly entertainment. Hope-

fully, this event continues to take off like it has and we can get some of the Citifest magic back.” On Aug. 1, there will be a children’s area from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. In the past, the source of fun has been a bouncy house, face painting and a YMCA fun bus for children to make crafts.

Smoke on the Water will take place July 30 to Aug. 1 in Promenade Park. The event is open July 30 and July 31 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Aug. 1 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is $5, but children 12 and under are free. For more information, visit ribs4redcross.com.

Cedar Point reaches beyond thrill rides for family fun By Kristen Rapin TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR krapin@toledofreepress.com

Cedar Point plans to kick off summer with a splash. This year, the theme park will unveil its third water ride, Shoot the Rapids. Shoot the Rapids is 85-feet-tall and 2,100 feet long. The 10-passenger ride takes approximately three minutes to complete, said Robin Innes, director of public relations for Cedar Point. The ride features two hills, one at 85 feet and the other at 49 feet. Riders will encounter surprise water elements throughout the ride, including interactive water blasts from onlookers. The park chose to build a water ride this season because of customer surveys, Innes said. Cedar Point polls visitors to get feedback on what type of accommodations and rides they want. The park then takes the popular suggestions and puts them into place, Innes said. “It’s not just thrill rides. We want everyone in the family to have

a good time,” Innes said. “The goal is to have everyone saying ‘That was great. Let’s do it again.’” This summer, the park will also feature five new shows, two Snoopythemed shows and three that revolve around music. All shows are free with park admission. “Happy Birthday Snoopy” will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip. “Everyone Loves Snoopy” is an indoor ice show featuring all Peanuts characters and is aimed at all ages. Both shows will take place in the Snoopy areas of the park. “Grand Ole Country” features county music from honky tonk to classic hits, while “Tropical Heat Island Beat” is a more Caribbeanthemed show featuring Jimmy Buffet songs. “Rock Band Live” is based on the popular video game. Visitors will have the chance to compete throughout the day for a chance to be on stage with the band during a show, Innes said. The park also intends to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Millennium Force, this season.

Plans are being finalized for a special Millennium Force day and event, Innes said. Cedar Point has been voted the “Best Amusement Theme Park” for 12 consecutive years by Amusement Today. The park features 75 rides and

17 roller coasters. Tickets are $45.99 for ages 3 to 61 and 48 inches and up and $19.99 for junior and seniors. Season passes are $112 or $160 for a platinum pass that includes admission to all Cedar Fair parks and free parking.

Cedar Point opens May 15 with Shoot the Rapids scheduled to open May 29.

Doobie Brothers bring 40th celebration to Toledo By Vicki L. Kroll TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER vkroll@toledofreepress.com

Revving the engine, The Doobie Brothers are still rockin’ down the highway, turning the corner on playing together for four decades. In honor of its 40th anniversary, the Grammy Award-winning group

will release a disc of new material and a DVD on the history of the band. Tom Johnston, singer-guitarist and band co-founder, said no release date has been set for the project. But fans will hear some new songs when The Doobie Brothers play an 8 p.m. show May 19 at Stranahan Theater. Tickets range from $37.50 to $55. “We’re playing a couple songs live.

One of them is called ‘World Gone Crazy,’ ” Johnston said from his Marin County, Calif., home during a May 7 phone interview. “It’s like an old Fats Domino kind of feel, but brought up to date for lack of a better way to put it. The words are just basically about a guy trying to make a buck, working every day for the city … it’s an up-tempo tune.” Another new track the band is

playing is “Back to the Chateau.” “‘Back to the Chateau’ is a reference to a place we used to play up in the Santa Cruz Mountains way back when, it doesn’t even exist anymore, but it was kind of a wild biker/dare I say hippie/mountain people/whatever club that we used to go hang out in,” Johnston said. “We knew a lot of musicians that played up there, and eventually we started playing up there.” The Doobie Brothers are known for playing several styles of music with different lead singers. Johnston sings “Listen to the Music,” “Long Train Runnin’ ” and “China Grove,” and singer-guitarist and co-founder Patrick Simmons is known for “Black Water” and “South City Midnight Lady.” And there were the Michael McDonald years from 1975 to 1982: “Takin’ it to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “What a Fool Believes.” “We’ve actually played with Michael, not so much in the last couple of years, but for awhile, they were corporate gigs and they would ask for him, and we would do three or four of his tunes along with our stuff,” Johnston said. “Other than that, no, we haven’t really discussed [a reunion tour] … It’s not that anybody doesn’t want to play

with anybody or anything like that, it’s just he’s off doing the solo thing, and we’re off doing the band thing.” Joining Johnston and Simmons in the lineup are singer-keyboardist Gary Allison, drummers Michael Hossack and Ed Toth, singer-guitarist John McFee, saxophonist Marc Russo and bassist-singer John Cowan. Since 1970, The Doobie Brothers have sold 22 million records, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. But the band hasn’t been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “I don’t know how I look at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame,” Johnston said. “It seems to be cherry-picked by whoever is running the deal, and sometimes some of the picks don’t really reflect rock and roll. … If we get inducted, that’s fine; if we don’t, we don’t. “The main thing is to get the music across to the people; that’s what being a musician is all about, and hopefully, lift their day. I mean, if you can make people happy, even if it’s just for an hour and a half, and make them feel good and take them away from their troubles, then you’ve done your job. If your music can continue to do that over a long period of time, then that’s even better.”

MIS revving up with upgrades, Danica Patrick race By Chris Schmidbauer TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPORTS EDITOR cschmidbauer@toledofreepress.com

With the NASCAR Sprint Cup series in full swing, soon the roar of the engines of the stock-car circuit returns to the Michigan International Speedway (MIS), tucked in the Irish Hills of Southeast Michigan. The NASCAR schedule has two visits to MIS this summer and the sports best will drive the 2-mile oval during those events. “We are very excited to have the Sprint Cup back here for two events again this year,” said Roger Curtis, MIS president. The first of the races is the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dip’s 400, which is scheduled for June 13. The race weekend kicks off June 11 with the Racing for Wildlife 200 ARCA race and is followed by the VFW 200, which will feature the NASCAR Truck Series. “We will have a weekend packed full of racing for our fans,” Curtis said. “We will still have the fan festival, and there will be free concerts going on as well throughout the weekend.” The second of the races is the CARFAX 400, which will run Aug. 15. The weekend kicks off with qualifying at the track with the Meijer Pole Day and the Nationwide Series will participate in the CARFAX 250 on Aug. 15. “That will be a very exciting weekend for us as well,” Curtis said. “Danica Patrick should be racing here that weekend and we also will be one of the four venues to showcase the Nationwide Series future car, too.” But Curtis wants all folks planning on making the trek to know there is plenty to do at the track besides the two races. “While the Sprint Cup races are certainly the highlights of our calendar, we have many other things that will be going on throughout the summer months here at MIS,” Curtis said. The facility will host the inaugural Great Lakes Wine Fest on June 26 and 27 and Curtis said he and the staff at MIS are extremely excited for the two day event. “We used to have a wine festival when I worked at Watkins Glen International in New York and we had a very successful wine festival that has grown since I came to Michigan,” Curtis said. Curtis and his staff said that after speaking with the Michigan Wine Association, the organization leapt at the chance to have an event. “They went wild for this idea and the event has actually grown to where we are going to have local brewers on board as well,” he said. “So we will

have beer and wine available. “We are just very excited to have the event here, too. Sure we have a 2-mile oval and garages, but we also have a significant amount of beautiful scenery that is perfect for this wine festival.” With the CURTIS continuing economic problems, Curtis said he and the staff at MIS rec-

ognize that no price is ever too low. That is why he said the folks at MIS have worked hard to keep tickets affordable so families do not break the bank spending a weekend at the track. “That has been extremely important to us. We understand everyone has been impacted by the economic downturn,” he said. “We knew we needed to do something to make sure we helped making coming out to the track an affordable experience.” MIS has lowered prices on almost all of the seats and Curtis said fans can see any of the Sprint Cup races for $25.

Curtis said despite economic hardship, the facility has invested significant money in improving the track. “We had a traffic problem a few years ago and we have worked hard to make sure that won’t be as much of an issue anymore. We have also upgraded

scoreboards and other amenities too.” With all of the upgrades, MIS continues to be one of the top racing destinations in the Midwest. Curtis said he and the staff at the track are very proud of the atmosphere they generate every summer.

Libraries dive into reading program By Colleen Kennedy TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library invites kids of all ages to dive into books this season by participating in their Summer Reading Club program. This year’s water theme encourages all ages to beat the dry summertime blues by stopping in to cool off with a new book or any of its other summer events. Walk into any area library June 7 through Aug. 7 and sign up for one of the three reading clubs. Each age-specific club offers unique prizes for accomplishing reading goals throughout the summer. The juvenile club, titled “Make a SplashRead,” is for children entering preschool through fifth grade. This age group is encouraged to read for 15 minutes per day and is awarded prizes after completing one, two, four, eight and 12 hours of reading. Prizes range from pencils to a 16-inch-inflatable beach ball. Completion of more than 20 hours enters the reader into a drawing for large prizes including gift cards to Toys ‘R’ Us and Mud Hens tickets. Each branch will also give away one family four-pack of tickets to Splash Bay Water park in Maumee as the ultimate grand prize at the end of the summer. The youth club, titled “Make Waves at Your Library,” is for sixth through 12th graders. Prizes in this age division are awarded for each book read and include ear buds, Frisbees and backpacks. Cedar Point tickets, a Kindle, a Wii game system and a digital camera are among the grand prizes. The adult division is titled “Water Your Mind Read” is for individuals 18 years old and up. This division encourages parents to become model readers for their kids. Similar to the youth club, adult awards are based on books read. Prizes include tickets to “Authors! Authors!,” a lecture series hosted at the Stranahan that features professional authors. Participants preschool to 12th grade can receive free TARTA transportation to and from their library. Area libraries will also host special weekly programs with special guest performers throughout the summer. Gordon the Magician is back by popular demand in ad-

By Brandi Barhite TOLEDO FREE PRESS ASSOCIATE EDITOR bbarhite@toledofreepress.com

Glenous Favata knows almost everything about the Toledo Zoo. The registrar knows what the elephants ate today, what year a particular tiger was born and why the zoo is the only place a visitor can see a polar bear cub this summer. Siku was the only surviving cub in the United States from the 2009 breeding season. “It is how you den up the mother,” said the 64-year-old. “They are very easily agitated and then they want to protect their young and when they protect their young that means they kill them.” This wisdom comes with 41 years as a full-time zoo employee, as well as three years as a seasonal employee while earning her bachelor’s in animal

science from The Ohio State University. The Toledo native has had several jobs during her four decades at the zoo, including curator of mammals, which helps with polar bear trivia. When Favata first starting working at the zoo, most women were only allowed to pass out bunnies and give rides on the tortoise. But even then, Favata was working with animals; one summer, she helped raise a leopard. “I wanted to be a veterinarian, but in those days, women didn’t do those kind of things,” Favata said. A dean pulled her aside and told her to work at a restaurant because she was just going to get married and have kids anyway. Well, she did get married and then divorced, but she kept working at the zoo. She remembers getting calls in

the middle of the night and dragging her daughter along. Since 1993, she has worked as a registrar. She’s the longest tenured employee working at the zoo with plans to retire in 18 months. “That is what makes staying here so long easy because I have had so many different positions.” As registrar, she is in charge of animal records. The keepers fill out daily logs and she puts the information into the computer, which becomes part of an international record-keeping system. She also makes sure everything is legal when animals are bought, sold, exported or imported. The zoo has about 9,000 individual animals and more than 700 species. Favata said summer is a fun time at the zoo, but winter is great, too, because there is more time for one-onones with the animals. Favata said she has seen exhibits built and torn down during her tenure. The really old Monkey Mountain became a goat exhibit, then a sea lion exhibit and then Centennial Gardens. Now, it is part of Nature’s Neighborhood. Change is good, she said. “I think that Toledo is right up there with everyone else. Once you are in the zoo business, and understand the inner-workings, you have a different appreciation of them.” Favata said she remembers when children got their heads or legs stuck in the guardrails, something that happened to her as an employee.

her worst memories is when a guy jumped over the guardrail to offer the chimps a cigarette. “I come charging down there and [the chimps] saw me and dropped him and he jumped out into crowd. I asked him, ‘What were you thinking? What did you do? Are you all right? And he said, ‘What are you talking about? I didn’t do anything.’” Favata said visitors need to respect the animals. “They are here for your enjoyment. And believe it or not, you are entertainment for them, too.” Zoo spokeswoman Andi Norman said “the zoo is everybody’s and ev-

eryone is invested in it.” Norman said the polar bear will be the big attraction this year. “He isn’t on exhibit yet, but he will be soon. If you want to see a polar bear cub, this is about it.” Favata will likely check out the polar bear. Even after all these years, Favata still visits the zoo as a guest. After all, “I am an animal person, not a people person,” she said, laughing. But she doesn’t discount the people she has worked with and the community she has served. The zoo has been her life. “I have been lucky that I have been able to go through the ropes here,” Favata said.

Imagination Station sponsors summerlong ‘big dig’ By Jennifer S. White TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

The newest exhibit at the Imagination Station gives visitors a chance to dig up history. The Big Dig: Footprints to Fossils will open May 29 and run through Sept. 6. “This gives kids a chance to be a little bit of a paleontologist,” said Carl Nelson, Imagination Station chief scientist and exhibits director. “There are only a handful of places in the country that have Devonian shale and Sylvania is one of them.” Big Dig visitors will have the opportunity to search through piles of the local shale, find fossils and take them home. “You can come in, dig through the shale and break open rock,” Nelson said. “You are guaranteed to find something.” Digging in the exhibit is a great learning experience for children said Lisa Gardner, Imagination Station special events manager. “They get to keep [what they find], take it home and have fun. There’s a ton of history right here in Ohio,” she said. The Big Dig offers activities geared toward a variety of ages. “There is going to be a giant sandbox, as well as a giant maze,” said Anna Kolin, communications

This gives kids a chance to be a little bit of a paleontologist. There are only a handful of places in the country that have Devonian shale and Sylvania is one of them.” — Carl Nelson and public relations manager. The Big Dig will include a sand sculpture created on-site by professional sand carver, Carl Jara. Jara will create his giant dinosaurthemed masterpiece between May 29 and June 3. Visitors are welcome to come and watch. The 5,000-square-foot, interactive maze features dinosaurthemed questions. “Inside the maze, you’ll be presented with questions about dinosaurs and fossils,” Nelson said. “Many of these questions are counter-intuitive to make you think.” Nelson said a correct answer allows the participant to continue through the maze, while an incor-

rect answer often leads to a deadend. For example, one question might ask the reader to compare the size of a dinosaur to modern objects, choosing the object of the most appropriate size. Smaller children will be drawn to the exhibit’s dinosaur nest. “Kids can dress up in dinosaur costumes at the dino nest,” Kolin said. “It’s a great photo opportunity for parents. The kids look so cute.” An excavation area allows kids to reconstruct dinosaur skeletons in a similar manner to real-life paleontologists. “When paleontologists find a skeleton, it’s often not complete,” Nelson said. “They have to think about what the rest might look like. Kids can create two large-scale dinosaur skeletons. Working with a clay-like material, they can make the bones that are missing in an area; like a paleontologist would do.” Visitors can also view a mix of actual and reproduced fossils, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull. “We’ll have all kinds of really cool stuff and all of this has been designed internally by Imagination Station,” Kolin said. Gardner said Imagination Station has other fun summer events planned, including The Dog Days of Summer in Festival Park. “On June 12 and 13 we’re promoting dog adoption, health and

care,” Gardner said. “We’ll have presentations on a variety of things, like how to make your own healthy dog treats and how a child should greet a dog.” Imagination Station is generally

closed on Mondays, but is scheduled to be open for The Big Dig on Memorial Day and Labor Day. For more information, including admission costs and hours, visit www. imaginationstationtoledo.org.

Groove into some of this summer’s featured exhibits like “The Psychedelic 60s: Posters from the Rock Era.” San Francisco psychedelic concert posters are arguably some of the most influential visual art of the late 1960s. From June 11-Sept. 12, the exhibit will showcase 150 posters promoting Jimi Hendrix, Cream and the Grateful Dead from the Houstin Freeburg Collection created by artists, such as Wes Wilson, Alton Kelly and David Singer. Fifty of the posters

have fluorescent or phosphorescent colors that glow in the dark and represent the height of black light design. After viewing some inspiration, create one July 11. And don’t forget about the museum’s festivals. Juneteenth, June 19, is a celebration of the African-American experience that includes African-inspired flavor in dance, art, food, music and more. Take a gallery tour, witness Civil War reenactments, glassblowing demonstrations and get your face painted. Kids can partake in hands-on activities and make baskets, drums, masks and kites. Another annual summer festival, “Arts Gone Wild,” July 16 through Aug. 15, is an evolving series of events sponsored by 15 Toledo area arts and cultural organizations.

BY ELIZABETH HAZEL Venus enters Cancer (19th), Sun enters Gemini (20th).

■ ANSWERS FOUND ON A48

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Beguiled by passions. Emotional and material situations get pressure from all sides. Courageous, decisive steps are necessary. One action fails, another succeeds. Strong allies and partners are key to success. Logic must be clear and free of hidden motives.

Garden statues. Limits are exceeded if expectations are unrealistic. Hidden injuries become visible midweek. People are passing the buck (and the frustration) around in circles. Take a few moments every day to affirm goals, adjust attitudes, and to enforce a sensible pace.

Presenting works. Determination to overcome obstacles peaks this week. Intentions are good, but timing may be bad. Be sensitive to the condition of others, and be willing return at another time. Sympathy and compassion win brownie points for another day.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Crossroads of fate. Ideas and talents are on the line. Learn from any effort that doesn’t work the first time so you can do better the next time. Taking things personally can be a big stumbling block. Leave doors open and allow room for others to change their minds.

Think beneath a tree. Details that concern you may not impress others. Hidden facts or secret agendas create misunderstandings and tensions. Stand apart from frustrating situations, take a deep breath, and give others plenty of rope. Errors will be evident in time

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Enforced wait. You’re ready to press for new goals and initiatives this week, but others are wading through pitfalls and muck. Use delays to fine-tune ideas and to solve problems. Short-term losses or delays can be leveraged into long-term gains. Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Singing contest. It may be difficult to separate personalities and outcomes this week. Sensitivity can be both burden and blessing. A spot of luck can bring aid on Thursday. Joining forces with others is preferable to attempting things alone. Consult with an oracle.

Lights in the night. Health issues and long-term financial status issues come to a boil. Offers may not come fast enough to help. Some decisions can no longer be delayed. Seek advice after Thursday. Write out your plans over the weekend and put it into motion.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Serving notice. Movement or mobility may be limited this week. Refocus on where efforts are effective; avoid getting stuck in a glum state. Help isn’t helpful if there are hidden catches. People share their concerns and ask for advice over the weekend.

Midnight snack. A project in development moves a step forward, but personal zones can be chaotic this week. Patience and generosity is tested when people do stupid things. Everybody makes mistakes, but rescuers and sources of aid are in short supply. .

Party crashers. Lots of things turn up this week – some you want, and some you definitely don’t want. After Thursday a problem is foisted into your lap. The best solution may not make everyone happy, but if you’ve been put in charge, tough luck to the deserters.

Scope out the scene. New situations are hampered by unexpected physical difficulties and obstacles. After Wednesday, use your ingenuity to figure out ways around problems and to fix two issues with one solution. Others will be impressed by your contributions.

a full-fledged panic. Assuming it was just some sort of mild post-traumatic stress, I didn’t think too much of it. After a few similar incidents down the road, however, I realized that he and I may share more than just long fingers. My daughter’s surprising turn toward social anxiety and emotionallycharged stomach discomfort has also taken “like mother like daughter” a bit further than I would have liked. The good news about sharing the genetic code for our Achilles’ heel with our offspring is that we are often one step ahead in dealing with it. With the right frame of mind and set of hand-me-down tools, our handme-down blue genes’ effects will hopefully dwindle throughout each generation until it finds the generation that finally eradicates it. Most of us have at least one blue gene in our genetic torch that we unwillingly pass on: a severe allergy, an extra chromosome, addiction, anxiety. Whether we spot it while our children are still in utero or years down the road, there is likely something there that we would not have selected from our DNA menu. Such unfavorable traits are not by choice, but we own them nonetheless. The gift comes in having a platform on which to teach our children how to make the best of what they’re given.
