Toledo Vision

ne of the great rewards of founding and operating Toledo Free Press for nearly nine years has been the exposure to a tremendous array of people and ideas. One of the Toledo Free Press contributors I am most impressed by and proud to know is Dan Johnson, former president of the University of Toledo. For several years, whether he was in Toledo or serving as COO of Zayed University in Dubai and Abu Dahbi, United Arab Emirates, Johnson has contributed columns that show he has kept Toledo in his heart and ever-busy mind. In his 2009 book “Talking Points for Thomas F. Pounds Toledo: Strategies for Developing Our City and Region,” Johnson reprinted many of his Toledo Free Press columns in an effort to spur conversation about the city’s future. His brand-new book, “Toledo Vision,” collects another 50 or so columns that offer a road map and compass for growth and prosperity in Toledo. As Toledo Mayor Mike Bell writes in the book’s forward, “Johnson’s book will help change Toledo’s image and let people know what this city is really all about.” The collection offers, in Johnson’s words, “personal reflections on strategies, best practices and bold initiatives” for Toledo. It covers broad topics such as regional economic development, collaborative momentum and the future of higher education, plus more specific snapshots in time such as the COSI (Imagination Station) levy, Christmas in Dubai and a discussion on meta-planning. JOHNSON “There are few cities in America, or in the world for that matter, that have the qualities and characteristics that have been bequeathed to Toledo by nature, history and earlier generations,” Johnson writes in the book’s introduction. “Yet the question remains: Can we put these pieces together? Can we connect the dots? Can we get our act together to create a city and region that is more than the sum of its parts? Can Toledo be a truly great city?” Johnson’s answer is “yes,” but he is not a man who deals with piein-the-sky dreams. He has experience, knowledge and a realm of contacts to inform his optimism. That combination of realism and hope infuses “Toledo Vision,” and it should be absorbed and discussed by everyone with a stake in our region’s future. Email me if you are interested in obtaining a copy of Johnson’s important and vital new book. O Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com n HARPER CONTINUED FROM 3 The cover story for this issue explains the problem and how it looks out in the Toledo area. Staff Writer Evan Brune’s story covers what private businesses are doing to help their employees lose weight. The free market runs off incentives. Climbing health care costs have given employers an incentive to increase healthy programs and options for their employees. Plus it builds employee loyalty, morale, and just makes everybody feel warm and fuzzy. Staff Writer Paige Shermis’ piece covers local government initiatives that are fighting obesity. Everything from community gardens to food pantries to breast-feeding can make a difference. Next week, Staff Writer Sura Khuder will examine weight-loss surgery options, laying out the pros and cons of different routes you can take. Ultimately, though, you’ll see that even with weight-loss surgery a lot of hard work and discipline is required to make the change last. Countless people have gotten weight-loss surgery only to gain the weight back again, which brings up my biggest point. The battle is for your mind. Not your stomach or your cholesterol or your blood sugar. I have studied this problem as an outsider looking in. I am not obese. But when I look in, I see people trapped by wrong thinking, people who want to stop

and desperately want to change, but cannot win the daily battles. Consequently, they’ve given up and sadly believe they are doomed to suffer the health problems and social stigma of being overweight. The solution is as liberating as it is simple: You have to love something more than your current lifestyle. For many people that is their kids. For others, it is God. Often, it is a love of self, the desire to look and feel better. You won’t win this battle by hating yourself. You’ll win it by loving the future you and focusing on the positive. That is what will drive you. Do not mistake simple for easy. It is not easy. Do not expect it to be. But focusing on how hard it is will only make it harder. What you focus on has an immeasurably large effect on your life. Focus on your goal, what you love, and take it one day at a time. Be encouraged that it is possible, that it has been done, and that you could be the next to do it. Change your mentality and you’ll change your life. But that’s just a 20-year-old skinny kid’s opinion, so take it with a grain of salt. Err, hold the salt.

SPECIAL REPORT: OBesity in TOLEDO

Can Toledoans reverse ‘epidemic’ of obesity? By Casey Harper Toledo Free Press Staff Writer charper@toledofreepress.com

Losing nearly half your body weight isn’t easy. But Mark Greenblatt weighed 330 pounds and he knew something had to change. He took medicine for his cholesterol and blood sugar. He experienced the asthma, sleep apnea and insecurity that come with carrying around the weight of a second person. Then he lost 150 pounds through diet and exercise, trading sleep apnea, asthma and medications for restful nights of sleep, high energy and a whole new wardrobe. “When I started, my pants were a 54inch waist,” he said. “Last September, I had a 32-inch waist, which is something I hadn’t had since junior high.” Greenblatt’s journey to obesity was, like many Americans’, a gradual accumulation of lifestyle choices that hit a critical mass. Recent data indicate his is only one story in a much larger narrative. Obesity rates around the country have risen to unprecedented levels, and Toledo’s is among the worst. In April, the online news site 24/7 Wall Street ranked Toledo the “7th fattest city in America.” “Yeah, we’re pretty fat, it’s true,” said Lucas County Health Commissioner Dr. David Grossman. “It’s funny; at one of our health care meetings we were saying how we’re famous for things that you don’t want to be famous for.”

Bursting at the seams

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 22.9 percent of Americans 20 and older were obese in 1988-94. By 2010, that number had risen to 35.7 percent. A person is obese if his or her body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher. BMI is calculated using height and weight. A 5-foot-6-inch woman weighing 160 pounds would have a BMI of 25.8. If that same woman gained 40 pounds, her BMI would jump to 32.3, putting her in the obese category. Statistics differ between surveys, but the percent national obesity rate cited by the CDC was obtained through actual measurement, while state numbers are obtained through self-reporting. In 2011, the CDC’s self-reported obesity rate for the state of Ohio was 29.6 percent, the 12th most obese state in the nation. According to the 2011 Lucas County Community Health Needs Assessment, also self-reported, Lucas County’s obesity rate is 35 percent. The percentages vary, but Lucas County stands out either way. The Ohio Department of Health divides Ohio into 10 regions and nine large counties. Of those 19 areas, Lucas County is tied for the fifth highest obesity rate. “What we’re seeing is many, many, many people who are obese, who are too heavy, and what’s happening is they are developing diabetes and … heart problems and high blood pressure,” said Barbara Gunning, director of health services for the Toledo-Lucas

County Health Department. Toledo, however, trumps most national heavyweights. Gallup recently surveyed 189 U.S. metropolitan areas. Only six had higher obesity rates than Toledo. 24/7 Wall Street evaluated Gallup’s 11 metropolitan areas with the highest obesity rates and also evaluated other obesity factors like healthy eating and exercise, as well as health effects like hypertension and diabetes. The site ranked Toledo as the “7th fattest city in America” and the fattest in Ohio, stating, “Toledo residents were more likely than most Americans to have high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes, or to have suffered a heart attack.” Grossman said many Lucas County residents do not exercise much and that hard economic times drive people to buy cheaper, easier-to-prepare unhealthy foods as opposed to healthier foods, which are more expensive and take more time to prepare. For example, a meal-sized salad at McDonald’s costs $4.95 without a drink or any sides. For that same price, you could buy four double cheeseburgers and a large sweet tea off the dollar menu. So if you’re feeding four kids, you can buy them all cheeseburgers for a total of $4 or you can buy them all salads for nearly $20. Healthy eating can hurt the piggy bank, and simply put, Americans aren’t willing to pay extra for food that doesn’t taste as good. n OBESITY CONTINUES ON 7

are actually hundreds of conditions that are related to obesity. It really does have an impact on every aspect of the body. It definitely can decrease life expectancy by five to 10 years easily. So it can take five to 10 years off of your life.” In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion, with obese people paying on average $1,429 more than those of

normal weight, according to the CDC. “If I spend a little bit more money to have fresh food and vegetables around, at least I’m not paying for copays and all the medicine and doctor visits,” Greenblatt said.

The little things

America’s obesity problem is primarily behavioral and cultural, Watkins said.

“We move a lot less and we have a greater excess of food,” she said. “Thirty years ago, the percentage of obese Americans was minimal. Our sense of portion control and portion sizes has changed a lot in the last 30 years. The first McDonald’s, when it opened in the ’50s, [an adult meal] was basically the size of a kids meal, and look what we have today. I remember as a little kid you got a small

hamburger and a little package of fries. Today they’ve quadrupled that.” Greenblatt battled his weight for years while working on his feet at his carryout and delivery pizza shop, but switching to a desk job sent him into his heaviest days. His BMI was 46 at his peak. He tried to lose weight several times to no avail. n OBESITY CONTINUES ON 8

Publicly funded bodies tackle obesity with education, activities By Paige Shermis Toledo Free Press Staff Writer pshermis@toledofreepress.com

A secret garden is growing behind the Believe Center in East Toledo. Rectangular concrete flowerbeds hold tomatoes on trellises and various herbs. Circular beds overflow with plant life and are decorated by the center’s young clients with rainbows, names and stars. The garden is one of the projects of Creating Healthy Communities, an initiative of the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department. Creating Healthy Communities is one of several enterprises sponsored in part by the City of Toledo and the county designed to combat the area’s obesity epidemic. According to the Huffington Post and 24/7 Wall Street, Toledo is the 7th fattest city in the U.S. Additionally, Section 11 of the 2011 Lucas County Health Assessment states that almost three-fourths (71 percent) of Lucas

County adults are either overweight (36 percent) or obese (35 percent) by body mass index (BMI) calculation. Amy Abodeely, a nutritionist at the health department and Tony Maziarz, a grant coordinator at the health department, lead Creating Healthy Communities. “[Creating Healthy Communities] has nine objectives total, and six of them are in the category of healthy eating and active living, either physical activity related or nutrition related. Both of those things are obesity-prevention related. There are six projects that we are working on. The first one we are doing with ProMedica is Safe Kids [Greater Toledo]. We are working with McKinley Elementary with the pickup and drop off policy, making it safer for kids to get picked up and dropped off at school and making it easier for kids to walk to school,” Maziarz said. n EDUCATION CONTINUES ON 10

Greenblatt’s comeback

Greenblatt’s big change came when he decided to join Mercy Weight Management Center’s nonsurgical weight loss program in June 2011, beginning the day after Father’s Day — a journey he hoped would keep him around longer for his two young boys ages 3 and 6. “My inspiration now is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and set a good example for my kids,” Greenblatt said. He joined the program with a group as part of a fundraiser. The group gathered sponsors who would pay for every pound they lost. Greenblatt made his donors more charitable

Mercy’s program involves attending weekly behavioral classes, working with a personal weight-loss coach and eating a structured diet that can be medically monitored. “The first 50 pounds came off in 10 weeks, 100 in six months,” Greenblatt said. “Knowing that I was eating to live rather than living to eat was a big thing.” With such rapid weight loss, Greenblatt struggled to keep a wardrobe that fit his shrinking figure. He spent thousands of dollars replacing clothes in a life-changing 18 months. He would buy just enough to last him until he needed to drop down another size.

I have to tell you that the numbers are going in the wrong direction,” Ruma said. The results of the individual exams are reported in the Lucas County Health Assessment. Ruma said one of Toledo’s issues with obesity is that the local environment is not conducive for people to travel in any way other than in cars, with no suitable bicycle or walking paths.

n EDUCATION CONTINUED FROM 7 The second project is a clientchoice food pantry at the Friendly Center in North Toledo. “The food pantry items will be labeled according to MyPlate [a government nutrition graphic], and they will walk around and be able to pick themselves what they want. This objective is helping them to allow themselves to be healthy. There will also be education materials to help them make healthy choices,” Abodeely said. Maziarz said that many of the projects that Creating Healthy Communities are doing are meant to last. “A lot of things we are doing are policy systems and environmental change. Once we are gone, hopefully there will be continuing processes that are sustainable. These are all related to the access part of access healthy food or access physical activity,” Maziarz said. The third project is the Believe Center’s community garden. Abodeely and Maziarz actually helped to plant the seeds and prepare the soil. Creating Healthy Communities’ fourth project is a healthy corner store. This year, a Stop & Go on Broadway Street was chosen as the pilot store. “We talked to the owners about the importance of having fresh produce in the corner store,” Abodeely said. Healthy corner stores are important because people in the neighbor-

“There are all different ways to attack these health improvement issues and I think our community is getting smarter about it, not just working with programs but also changing the environment so we prevent people from having the problem to begin with,” Ruma said. Sarah Bucher is the director of healthy living for Live Well Greater Toledo, which is funded in part by the City of Toledo. “[Live Well Greater Toledo] is a collaborative effort that leads to toward healthier communities. It is

looking at outside programming — we are looking at policy changes and environmental changes for the community,” Bucher said. Additionally, Bucher said that Live Well is working with Toledo Public Schools to establish safe walking routes to their schools, which are now all K-8 buildings. “With TPS, this is very timely because within the last few years they have redistricted. Most of the schools are brand-new, and they were designed K-5 but now all of

our schools are K-8. “So, kids are walking there who aren’t supposed to be. Also, there is the two-mile radius rule; within two miles of school, no TPS busing is provided,” Bucher said. Live Well’s programs are not targeted only toward children, however. “It’s really for the overall community because if parents are active, then the children are less likely to get obese. It’s a community-wide initiative, we are not focusing on a specific age group,” Bucher said. O

SPECIAL REPORT: OBesity in TOLEDO

By Evan Brune

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer ebrune@toledofreepress.com

Toledo has one of the highest obesity rates in America, a nation in which one in three adults is obese. To combat these growing trends, Toledoarea businesses are developing fitness and health programs for employees and city residents. The riverfront walking path developed by Owens Corning is one of the offerings that can be found in the city. “[The path] is very nice. I’m glad we have something Downtown,” said Jonas Westrin, an avid runner. “With a combination of this and a group exercise, I don’t have to take blood pressure medicine anymore. My doctor said, ‘Just keep doing what you’re doing.’” The local produce offered by the Toledo Farmers’ Market is part of another program designed to keep Toledo residents healthy. The Market’s “Double Up Food Bucks” program allows shoppers with Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits or Ohio Direction Cards to double their purchasing power. If shoppers on benefit programs spend $20 at the market, they get an additional $20 to spend on local produce. The program was initially created by the Fair Food Network, based in Ann Arbor. “The idea was to get people on assistance to eat more nutritious foods,” said Dan Madigan, executive director of the Farmers’ Market Association of Toledo. MADIGAN “The only place they have to buy food is the corner convenience stores, so they end up buying junk food. We’re trying to show the USDA that there’s better ways to implement food stamps.” The only limitation shoppers have is they must spend the $20 benefit on locally grown produce. “That’s one thing we have to educate shoppers on,” Madigan said. “Use the double-up bucks first for your pro-

duce and then use your card to buy everything else.” Madigan said the market also offers other resources. “We offer a once-a-month canning demonstration,” he said. “We demonstrate how to cook them as well as how to save them.” Madigan said the response from shoppers is overwhelming. “It’s just really nice, all the people who stop and say thanks,” he said. “I just had a woman last week talk about how she canned all last year and was able to have fresh produce through the winter. It’s the highlight of their summer, being able to come out here and buy fresh food.” The Fair Food Network has plans to expand the “Double Up Food Bucks” program in Ann Arbor, but Madigan said he doesn’t see much expansion for the Toledo-area program unless more funds become available. “It’s a very small number of people compared to those who are on food stamps, but we’re small,” Madigan said. “We’re always looking for funding next year.”

Fighting with Imagination

Toledo residents can also learn about personal wellness at Imagination Station, where the “Eat It Up!” exhibit focuses on teaching kids the benefits of eating healthy and staying active. “It’s not uncommon for a science center to have a health exhibition,” said Lori Hauser, CEO of Imagination Station. “Obviously, childhood obesity is a serious problem that affects lots of children. Eat It Up! puts the focus on nutrition and exercise.” The program came about through a partnership between the center and ProMedica, which focused on creating a permanent exhibition to promote a joint healthy kids initiative. “In Ohio, we are 12th in HAUSER childhood obesity rates, and it can lead to serious issues as an adult,” Hauser said. “If they leave here with

just a little bit of information, then that has an impact. I think there are some really cool experiences that they might have and go home and say, ‘Hey, Mom and Dad, this is what I did today. I want to try this.’ Our goal is to try to have a family dialogue going on.” The exhibit features eight different activity stations, ranging from the Heart Rate Rally, where kids race a series of flashing lights, to the Lifestyle Camera, which shows how lifestyle choices affect future appearance. “Lifestyle Camera is one of the most popular ones,” said Sloan Mann, assistant director of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education at Imagination Station. “You enter your eating habits, exercise habits, and it shows you what you look like years from now. We also have the food smasher, and it’s pretty graphic, but it’s also educating people on what is inside their food.” Mann said there are a lot of variables to consider when developing a plan to combat childhood obesity. “The science center sees ourselves as a piece of the puzzle,” she said.

Owens Corning seeks health

Owens Corning, a Toledo-area industrial giant, offers health benefits to its employees in an effort to promote overall well-being. “Having healthy employees is important to us,” said Mark Snyder, benefits director at Owens Corning. Employees have access to an onsite fitness center, health seminars and spinning classes. Food in the cafeteria is labeled with nutritional values and on-site health screenings are available. “We’re trying to create a culture where it’s easy to be healthy,” Snyder said. Employees have opportunities to reduce what they pay in health care premiums by participating in the various programs. “Each employee has a health target that they try to reach to lower their health care premiums, but if they don’t reach that in their annual screenings, they have other ways to earn incentive dollars,” Snyder said.

at Owens Corning, started his job weighing 348 pounds. Thanks to the Owens Corning fitness programs, he now weighs 286 pounds and has run the 5K in the Glass City Marathon. “I am a huge believer in what the OC Fitness Center had offered me,” Hervey said in an email. “When I got hired into Owens Corning on Oct. 10, 2011, Mindy Calgie, fitness director at Owens Corning, gave me a one month free pass. I was miserable and she gave me hope that I could do something about it. She had me do a mile run as fast as I could do it. I couldn’t run the entire time because it hurt my legs, knees and every other part of my body.” Hervey said he made a commitment to himself in August of 2012 to do 50 miles on a treadmill in 31 days. “I finished the 50 miles with four days to spare and I attribute that success to posting a tracking sheet around my team at work and they kept me encouraged and accountable,” he said. “Mindy set up a walking session at lunch two days a week, to walk the bridges and other paths around Owens Corning. That kept me motivated.”

One year after he made his pledge, Hervey is signed up to run his first halfmarathon in Dublin, Ohio, on Aug. 25. “I am not done yet,” he said. “My ultimate goal is to weigh 245-250 pounds and have a total loss of 100 pounds. In all the success I have had with feeling better, breathing better, sleeping better, the most impactful part has been helping others start their own journey. It’s through helping others that I realize that I can’t stop doing what I’m doing. Every time I hear a compliment on how I look and the energy level I possess, it fuels the fire to keep going. This world is hurting for hope in many ways, including a healthier lifestyle.” Snyder said Owens Corning continues to look for ways to improve on benefit programs offered to employees not only in the Toledo area, but around the world. “It’s the right thing to do,” he said. “We want our employees to be healthy. A healthy employee feels good. If you feel better, you’re going to be a better worker, a better dad, a better husband.” O

Lucas County Prosecutor Julia Bates is used to standing in front of a judge and speaking confidently to a courtroom. But standing in front of a camera to be photographed without makeup made even her feel a little vulnerable. Bates is among the local women whose barefaced portraits will be featured at This is Me, an upcoming fundraiser to benefit Girls on the Run (GOTR) of Northwest Ohio. “We as women do everything to stop the aging process, probably from the time we’re 20,” Bates said. “But this is who we are, this is what we look like, this is how we sleep, this is how we come out of the shower, this is how we come out of the swimming pool. Girls from the time they are young should know they can be loved for what’s inside. That’s what’s really important — what you stand for — and if you look good, that’s just frosting, really.” This is Me is set for 7-11 p.m. Sept. 13 at The Blarney Event Center, 601 Monroe St. Tickets will be available soon at a cost to be determined. The event will feature refresh-

ments, music from local female artists and portraits of 12 women to be sold by silent auction. Among those featured will be Bates, WTOL11 news anchor Chrys Peterson, Toledo City Councilwoman Lindsay Webb, autism charity Project iAm founder Nicole Khoury, 101.5 The River morning radio host Mary Beth Zolik, The Josh Project founder Wanda Butts, blogger Brittany Gibbons and more. “Everyone has a story and their own reason for doing it,” said organizer Jeremy Baumhower, a Toledo Free Press columnist. “The whole night will be a celebration.” Baumhower come up with the idea after seeing “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke and singer/actress Demi Lovato post photos of themselves without makeup to social media sites, encouraging others to do the same. “Ladies, be brave today.. take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!!,” Lovato tweeted on April 3. “I just woke up and saw in my head, ‘What if we did it locally with beautiful, powerful women?’” Baumhower said. “I had the vision before I had the charity.” n THIS IS ME CONTINUES ON 15

It has locations in more than 200 cities in the United States and Canada.

Me because it reinforces the example she’s trying to set for her stepdaughters. “I believe combating the message that you have to be what society deems as perfect is crucial to their self-esteem and wellbeing,” Webb said in an email. “If women who are successful can demonstrate they are comfortable in their own skin without makeup, it may send the message to girls and other women that what really matters is how you feel about yourself. Your inner beauty and your other abilities are what matter most. “If you personally feel better in makeup, by all means wear it, but if you are doing it because you feel it’s expected, it may be time to rethink things because all of the time spent on worrying about superficial looks could be better spent on what truly makes you happy,” Webb said. Khoury, a criminal defense attorney and musician in local band Arctic Clam, said she is generally comfortable with herself, but still struggles with occasional insecurity. “I’ve dealt with perfectionism issues my whole life,” Khoury said in an email. “Most people look at me and think I’ve got this extreme confidence and nothing bothers me.

but then I pick myself apart from head to toe.” Zolik said her confidence to be herself can be traced to her all-girls Catholic high school. “My husband and I have encouraged our daughter with the same philosophy, and whenever I have the opportunity to spread this message to other girls, I’m all in,” Zolik said in an email. “If the whole idea is to give these girls a positive sense of themselves, that what really counts is

what is on the inside, not the outside, what better way to prove it than by taking it all off?” Area women are encouraged to share photos of themselves without makeup via social media using the hashtag #thisismetoledo. A selection of the photos will be chosen for display at the event. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor. Bates said she hopes the event helps raise awareness among girls about self-image.

Profile of Excellence: Tracy Seeger Owens Community College Alumna

Tracy Seeger grew up in Toledo, Ohio. She attended Notre Dame Academy.

In 2001, Seeger graduated and took her nursing board exam.

Seeger always wanted to be a nurse. Instead, she took a job working in a dental lab, got married and started a family.

She was hired by Flower Hospital as a nurse intern in the operating room. She was one of the first nurse interns that they had ever hired right after graduation.

After seven years, she began working at an oral maxillofacial surgeon’s office. She handled the front office and scheduling. She loved her job, but never forgot her desire to become a nurse. When Seeger was 35, she decided that her boys were old enough and she was ready to pursue her dreams of becoming a nurse. She took her time to research her options and toured various schools. She instantly liked Owens Community College the best. She began part time and worked on her prerequisites. Then when she reached her core classes, she began attending full time. She was still working full time as well. “The clinical experience at Owens was phenomenal. They used every available second to teach us. The faculty wanted us to succeed,” said Seeger. She was able to get all the extra help she wanted, including extended hours in a skills lab and outside help in the Math Center. Tracy Seeger Registered Nurse and Certified Ambulatory Perianesthesia Nurse Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital

She quickly moved to pre-operative holding and found that she loved it. “Getting ready for surgery is a stressful time for patients. I found that I was able to calm their nerves and really make a difference,” said Seeger. In August 2011, Seeger moved to the newly built Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital, one of only 30 free-standing orthopedic hospitals in the nation. She still works in pre-op and continues to love her job. She credits much of her success to her great start at Owens, along with devoting herself to her career. “I have heard so many nursing directors say that they wouldn’t hesitate to take an Owens student because they are so well prepared,” said Seeger.

“The clinical experience at Owens was phenomenal.”

“My mother had this fabulous saying, ‘Pretty is as pretty does,’” Bates said. “It’s all about how you are, not how you look. Be who you are. Be great. You are great. The prettier you behave, the more you glow. That’s the truth. It’s all about what comes from the inside. I hope we can say that and we can make younger women, younger girls, really believe it.” For more information, visit thisismetoledo.com. O

Back to school, time to hit the snooze

almost missed the school bus every day. When I drove myself, I always had to sprint to my first-period class — and I usually made it just in time or a few seconds after the bell. (Thanks Mr. Holloway for looking the other way.) I remember my dad flicking the lights on and off after my alarm clock rang. He would tickle my feet. My middle sister would get ready around me. I could not get up. I was just so tired. Brandi Years later, I recognize that I wasn’t being a typical sleepto-noon teenager; I was truly not getting adequate rest. Dr. Michelle Boose, ProMedica physician, said with only a few weeks until the start of school it is time to transition to a sleep schedule that is school friendly. Starting now, students should go to bed 30 minutes earlier and then wake up sooner, gradually working toward the desired bed and wake-up times. Boose, who also has a master’s in public health, said the average schoolaged kid (younger than 13) gets 9.5 hours of sleep per night, although the recommendation is 10-11. Teens should get a little more than 9 hours. “If you do it all the night before school starts, you are going to have problems the next morning,” Boose said. Summertime means late nights and late mornings, she said. It is hard to get back into the habit of going to bed at 9 p.m. and getting up at 6 a.m.

“A lot of people are going to try and they are going to be in for a rude awakening. It is always easier to ease into it.” Sleep is essential to school performance, Boose said. Tired students sometimes struggle with tests, moodiness and behavioral issues. “It isn’t about just being a little sleepy-eyed in the morning,” she said. “I work long hours and I wear a lot of hats. I know if you are up late and you get up early in the it affects you BARHITE morning, all day.” Boose recommends bedtime routines. She asks her patients, “What are you doing before you go to bed?” “We talk about setting routines, not being on a cellphone, not watching TV, not playing a video game, not playing with pets and just kind of settling down.” A lot of times TV and video games will stimulate the brain and keep children awake, she said, while a bath, reading and stretching are great ways to wind down. A pet’s routine of stretching before and after sleep is something to emulate, she said. Also, kids are really great at asking for water or one more story so all of this can be done during the bedtime routine, the doctor said. In the evening, iced tea, soda and chocolate should be eliminated. Some people can handle the caffeine, but it could cause waking up in the middle of the night or a 2 a.m. trip to the bathroom.

But if a student is chronically tired, wetting the bed or sleepwalking, Boose said a visit to the doctor can help rule out a medical condition.

Finally, be careful not to undo the school sleep schedule on the weekends, she said, or you will have to start again come Monday.

Romules Durant takes reins as new TPS superintendent By Casey Harper

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer charper@toledofreepress.com

Romules Durant is an ambitious man. He knew he wanted to be a superintendent when he was 19 years old and he hopes to one day be secretary of education. He just got one step closer. Durant was officially named as Toledo Public Schools (TPS) interim superintendent Aug. 1 at a special board meeting to replace Jerome Pecko. Durant said that even though he is an interim superintendent, he is working on a long-term vision. “I don’t have an interim mentality nor do I have an acting mindset,” Durant said. “If you try to rush a vision within a short period of time all you’re going to have is dysfunction as well as an overburdened staff. My actions are based on full force hitting the ground running.” TPS’ five-year, $6.5 million renewal levy is up for a vote in November. Durant said if the levy doesn’t pass there would have to be cuts. The target of the cuts has not been decided but Durant said there could be increased

classroom sizes and reductions in workforce, though it would not be just up to him. He said he has felt a lot of community support and feels positive about the levy passing.

Doing good things

The district is doing good things but needs to do a better job of getting the word out, Durant said. He is working on a marketing team; they have three commercials currently airing. One of the biggest problems facing the district, according to Durant, is students starting their first year of school already developmentally behind. He said that is one reason he stresses getting the entire community involved in education. He wants to address this problem as superintendent. Durant grew up on the East Side. He graduated from Waite High School in 1994 and attended the University of Toledo on a football scholarship. He received a doctorate in education and administration from UT in 2007 Durant has worked in the district in various positions since 2004. He said his experiences in the schools

have helped him understand how to be a better superintendent. As part of that, he understands that education is affected greatly by what happens to students outside the classroom. He wants to integrate programs like United Way, YMCA and others into the school community to make TPS more effective. He even plans to give outside programs space in the schools to operate. “Education can’t be the solution to the problem alone,” Durant said. Durant believes that students excel in positive leadership roles. “Providing kids leadership opportunities within the schools, I can’t stress that enough,” he said. “I deal with the principals all the time that they become the drivers of the culture of your building and when you provide them positive leadership opportunities that have expectations to them alongside of having a peer-topeer support group that is being influenced by a mentor. I said, ‘You have an impactful program because now you have kids who are holding other students accountable to their actions as opposed to the presence of an adult.’” n DURANT CONTINUES ON 20

A new option for postsecondary education recently opened in Toledo. Global Tech Institute, located at 4346 Secor Road, offers five majors focusing on job skills in business technologies. Accounting, business management, computer science and hospitality management are one-year diploma programs. Office administration is a nine-month certification. Small class sizes, low tuition and a family-like atmosphere set Global Tech apart from other schools, said Director of Admissions Persilla Zervos. “There are a lot of choices out there, but the small classes and the extra attention they get here sets us apart,” Zervos said. “Because the classes are small, it’s like having your own private teacher. And tuition is very reasonable. Students are not finishing the program and having this heavy debt on their shoulders. “We’re here to make sure our students succeed, not only with the courses but as people,” Zervos said. “It’s a very warm environment for students. Right before they graduate, they go through mock interviews and we show them how to dress, how to put their best foot forward, so they can get the job they want.” n GLOBAL CONTINUES ON 22

So far, the school has attracted more nontraditional students than recent graduates, Zervos said. “We thought we’d have more recent high school graduates, but it’s people in the business community who either want to upscale their skills or want to go into another field completely, so it’s been interesting in that respect.” The building is a renovated former nursery school, Zervos said. “We completely redid the inside to make smaller classrooms, and added a student lounge, up-to-date computer lab, library and study area,” Zervos said. “It’s a big difference.” The school operates on a quarter system, with spring, summer, fall

and winter sessions. The first classes started in April with an official ribbon cutting and open house held July 2. The summer session started July 8. Classes are currently forming for fall and winter quarters. Founded in 2012, the independently operated school features “a curriculum designed to foster creative problem-solving, effective communication and independent thinking,” according to a news release. “[President Joseph Hosny] chose Toledo because he felt there was a lot of potential here in this city,” Zervos said. “He did investigate other cities in the U.S., but decided on Toledo. It’s a good place to raise a family and he really likes Toledo.” Administrators have plans to expand the degree programs to include more computer certifications and

potentially associate degrees in the future, Zervos said. “We’re going to be expanding on all of our programs,” she said. “It’s a step-by-step process with the state.” Zervos encouraged anyone thinking about continuing their education to learn more about Global Tech. “Just call, come in, take a look at the school and see if we fit with your goals,” she said. “A lot of people talk about it, but have difficulty acting on it. In this day and age, with our economy, you have to act on it.” Prospective students must be at least 17 years old and have a high school diploma or GED.

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Local T-shirt company Glass Wear has launched a new website that includes online ordering for its Toledo pride-themed shirts. The company also recently partnered with local nonprofit Food for Thought to donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of each shirt to provide food for local people in need. “I just really love what Food for Thought is doing. They really appealed to me,” said Tim Marshall, who started Glass Wear with his friend and fellow Toledo native Brandon Erickson in April 2012. “I was looking for someone who had the same passion and focus as we do and wanted to improve where we live. I just feel like they get it. We have a common goal of making where we live better. It just kind of made sense.” Glass Wear has always donated some of its proceeds to various local nonprofits, but Food for Thought will be its first long-term partnership. “It’s great,” said Sam Melden, Food for Thought’s chief thought officer. “It just shows some of the creativity that can happen when you partner together.” Marshall and Melden met at an Arts Commission Art Walk a few years ago. “With Sam, the connection was instant,” Marshall said. “I thought, ‘This guy is doing things right.’” Glass Wear’s donation equates to 13.6 pounds of food per T-shirt sold, Marshall said. “We’re hoping to double that in the next year with the launch of the Web page,” Marshall said. “That will really cut down our costs and we’ll be able to give more.” Glass Wear sold T-shirts during the July Art Walk, resulting in a donation of more than 250 pounds of food to Food for Thought, Marshall said.

The desire to give back was instilled in Marshall by his parents; his mom worked at a local homeless shelter and his father worked with inner city churches. “We weren’t necessarily the richest people. That idea of not being sure where the next meal is coming from hits home sometimes,” Marshall said. “That’s always been ingrained in my brain from early childhood, that you do what you can with what you have. We really think Food for Thought is doing it correctly.” Marshall said he’s excited about moving into online ordering. Website orders can be shipped or picked up at Starbucks at Westgate, 3305 W. Central Ave., from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesdays. “We’re looking at some unique packaging,” Marshall said. “You’re not just going to get a box in the mail with a T-shirt inside. We’ll have a couple surprises I’m finishing the details on. We’re trying to create an experience.” Marshall and Erickson said they chose to focus on Toledo shirts because they love the city and want others to love it as much as they do. “So many people get down on Toledo,” Erickson told Toledo Free Press in 2012. “There’s a lot of great stuff here and we just want to spread the positivity.” Glass Wear’s first and most popular shirt design, called The Roots, features the Toledo skyline with roots growing into the ground. Other designs include Toledo: Our City, Awesome People Love Toledo, It’s Always Fine in the 419, I [Ohio outline] 419, I [bicycle] Toledo, Made in Toledo, Rise Up Toledo!, Meet Me On Adams and T*O*L*E*D*O*S F*I*N*E*S*T, featuring an image of Jamie Farr.

Blue-eyed soul star to headline River Raisin Jazz Festival By Vicki L. Kroll

Bobby Caldwell ups the ante on his 2012 disc, “House of Cards.” On the cover, he’s sporting that familiar fedora and holding five playing cards. Is poker his game? “Well, that’s a leading question,” the singer-songwriter wagered and laughed. “I really like imagery, so painting a picture of a backroom in some bar with people CALDWELL playing poker, I tried to spin that lyrically.” 4051 Devers_VV_Audi_713_Layout 1 6/12/13 12:02 PM Page 1

He’s been dealing up music since he hit the jackpot with his 1978 self-titled debut. But it wasn’t without some high-stakes drama. “After eight to 10 months of punishing myself, I delivered a record and ‘What You Won’t Do For Love’ was not on the album. The record label, TK Records, they were enthralled with the record; they loved it, but they didn’t feel that I had the breakout cut,” Caldwell said. “And so after an arduous journey, it was like, ‘Quick, go back in; we don’t think you have your lead single.’ And I went back into the studio. Jeez, it kind of took place really quickly and I gave it very little thought, and at the end of the day, this is the song that broke the record.” “What You Won’t Do For Love” hit

No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. That sultry, smoldering track with the smooth bass groove has been covered by Boyz II Men and Go West, and has been sampled by more than 100 artists, including Mary J. Blige, Gym Class Heroes, 2Pac and Aaliyah.

“People look at that song and they go, ‘Oh my God, how brilliant! How incredible!’ And it wasn’t really. It was just something that happened, spur of the moment,” Caldwell said during a call from his New Jersey home. When it came to Caldwell’s race, TK

Records wanted to bluff; early album covers featured colorful illustrations. “I had very little say in that. This was a label that basically their platform was R&B, so they had a lot of black artists on the label, huge sales,” he said. n CALDWELL CONTINUES ON 25

They decided, ‘OK, we don’t want to disclose his color,’ so that’s how it played out. So the silhouette became heavily in play.” The shuffle didn’t faze Caldwell or his fans. “Why I was adopted as a blue-eyed

soul artist — wow, it’s just anybody’s guess,” he said. “All I can tell you is that I cut my teeth on the stuff that I used to buy — from Philadelphia, Motown, Stax Records, Marvin Gaye, Four Tops, Spinners — all heavily influenced me.” Caldwell started to play big-band music in the mid-1990s. “My home life as a child, it was like Ella Fitzgerald-Frank Sinatra headquarters, so I was exposed to all that

incredible and wonderful music. It got under my skin and like so many other artists — Natalie Cole, Michael Bublé, Rod Stewart — they all in some respect carry the torch for the American songbook, as do I; it’s something that should be kept alive. Caldwell will headline the 12th annual River Raisin Jazz Festival at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 11 at St. Mary’s Park, Monroe. The event is free. O

CARLSON’S CRITTERS

A home for Ashley and Scout Ashley is a 3-year-old female Treeing Walker Coonhound. The Toledo Area Humane Society (TAHS) received Ashley from another shelter that needed help finding homes for a few of their dogs. Ashley has her calm laid-back moments, and other times she enjoys a little activity. She is muscular, headstrong and somewhat independent. Ashley loves other dogs and cannot stand cats. She is eager to find a home where she will receive plenty of mental stimulation. If she does not have anything to occupy her time, she will become bored and will try to find ways to keep herself entertained. Ashley knows how to climb fences so her new owner will need a plan for keeping her securely in the yard. The more exciting and interesting her yard space becomes, the less likely she will be to wander off. Ashley is everything you would expect for a typical hound, right down to her inquisitive nose and her desire to “talk” about whatever is on her mind. Ashley has been spayed, examined by a TAHS staff veterinarian, is current on her vaccinations, and is microchipped. Scout is a 5-year-old calico brown tiger. When Scout lost her home, she was brought into the Toledo Area Humane Society as a stray. Scout is a little shy around new people and it may take her a few moments to warm up to new visitors. With a little persuasion, she will come to you for some petting and that is the first step in gaining her friendship. Once Scout decides that you’re a nice person, she will stick to you like glue. Scout enjoys curling up in your lap for a relaxing moment of one-on-one time. She is calm, passive and unlikely to get into much trouble. She will be a great companion for a quiet, laid-back household. Scout has

A DIFFERENT KIND

OF TREATMENT COULD HELP YOU FIND

OSTEOARTHRITIS

KNEE PAIN

RELIEF. Ask your doctor about Synvisc-One, the #1 prescribed viscosupplement in the U.S.1

The only viscosupplement providing up to 6 months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief with just one injection.*

Indication Synvisc-One® (hylan G-F 20) is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen.

Important Safety Information for Synvisc-One Before trying Synvisc-One, tell your doctor if you have had an allergic reaction, such as swelling of the face, tongue or throat, respiratory difficulty, rash, itching or hives to SYNVISC or any hyaluronan-based products. Should not be used in patients with an infected knee joint, skin disease or infection around the area where the injection will be given, or circulatory problems in the legs. Synvisc-One is only for injection into the knee, performed by a doctor or other qualified health care professional. Synvisc-One has not been tested to show pain relief in joints other than the knee. Tell your doctor if you are allergic to products from birds — such as feathers, eggs or poultry — or if your leg is swollen or infected. Synvisc-One has not been tested in children (≤21 years old), pregnant women or women who are nursing. You should tell your doctor if you think you are pregnant or if you are nursing a child. Talk to your doctor before resuming strenuous weight-bearing activities after treatment. The side effects sometimes seen after Synvisc-One include (<2% each): pain, swelling, heat, redness, and/or fluid build-up in or around the knee. Tell your doctor if you experience any side effects after treatment with Synvisc-One. *As shown in a medical study comparing Synvisc-One to an injection of salt water. 1 Synvisc Prescribing Information. Cambridge, MA: Genzyme Corp; 2010.

A natural substance that lubricates your joint to relieve osteoarthritis knee pain

Patient Information Be sure to read the following important information carefully. This information does not take the place of your doctor’s advice. If you do not understand this information or want to know more, ask your doctor. Glossary of Terms Hyaluronan (pronounced hy-al-u-ROE-nan): is a natural substance that is present in very high amounts in joints. It acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: also known as “NSAIDs”; medication used to treat pain or swelling. There are many examples of NSAIDs, including (but not limited to) aspirin and ibuprofen. Some of these are over-the-counter drugs, and some can be obtained only by prescription. Osteoarthritis (pronounced OS-te-o-arth-RI-tis): (OA) is a type of arthritis that involves the wearing down of cartilage (the protective covering on the ends of your bones) and loss of cushioning fluid in the joint. What is the Synvisc-One® product? Synvisc-One is a gel-like mixture that comes in a syringe containing 6 mL (1½ teaspoon) and is injected into your knee. It is made up of hylan A fluid, hylan B gel, and salt water. Hylan A and hylan B are made from a substance called hyaluronan (pronounced hy-al-u-ROE-nan), also known as sodium hyaluronate that comes from chicken combs. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in the body and is present in very high amounts in joints. The body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly. How is the Synvisc-One® product used? (Indications) The FDA-approved indication for Synvisc-One is: Synvisc-One is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen. How is the Synvisc-One® product given? Your doctor will inject Synvisc-One into your knee. Are there any reasons why I should not receive a Synvisc-One® injection? (Contraindications) Your doctor will determine if there is any reason why you are not an appropriate candidate for Synvisc-One. You should be aware that Synvisc-One: • Should not be used in patients who have had any prior allergic reactions to Synvisc, Synvisc-One or any hyaluronan-based products. Signs of an allergic reaction may include swelling of your face, tongue, or throat; difficulty breathing or swallowing; shortness of breath; wheezing; chest pain; a tightness in your throat; sleepiness; rash; itching; hives; flushing; and/or fever. • Should not be used in patients with a knee joint infection, skin disease or infection around the area where the injection will be given, or circulatory problems in the legs. What should my doctor warn me about? The following are important treatment considerations for you to discuss with your doctor and understand in order to help avoid unsatisfactory results and complications: • Synvisc-One is only for injection into the knee, performed by a doctor or other qualified health care professional. Synvisc-One has not been tested to show pain relief in joints other than the knee. • Synvisc-One has not been tested to show better pain relief when combined with other injected medicines. • Tell your doctor if you are allergic to products from birds such as feathers, eggs, and poultry. • Tell your doctor if you have significant swelling or blood clots in the leg. • Synvisc-One has not been tested in pregnant women, or women who are nursing. You should tell your doctor if you think you are pregnant, or if you are nursing a child. • Synvisc-One has not been tested in children (≤21 years of age). What are the risks of getting a Synvisc-One® injection? The side effects (also called reactions) sometimes seen after any injection into the knee, including Synvisc-One, include: pain, swelling, heat, redness, and/or fluid buildup around the knee. These reactions are generally mild and do not last long. Reactions are generally treated by resting and applying ice to the injected knee. Sometimes it is necessary to give pain relievers by mouth such as acetaminophen or NSAIDs, or to give injections of steroids, or to remove fluid from the knee joint. Patients rarely undergo arthroscopy (a surgical inspection of the knee joint) or other medical procedures related to these reactions. Other side effects seen with Synvisc or Synvisc-One are: rashes, hives, itching, muscle pain/cramps, flushing and/or swelling of your face, fast heartbeat, nausea (or feeling sick to your stomach), dizziness, fever, chills, headache, difficulty breathing, swelling in your arms and/or legs, prickly feeling of your skin, and in rare cases a low number of platelets in the blood (platelets are a type of blood cell that are needed to help your blood clot when you are cut or injured). Rare cases of knee joint infection have been reported. If any of the above side effects or symptoms appear after you are given Synvisc-One, or if you have any other problems, you should call your doctor.

What are the benefits of getting a Synvisc-One® injection? As shown in a medical study of 253 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, where approximately half received either a single injection of Synvisc-One or an injection of the same volume of salt water (a “Saline Control” injection), the major benefits of SynviscOne are pain relief and improvement in other symptoms related to OA of the knee. What do I need to do after I get a Synvisc-One® injection? It is recommended you avoid strenuous activities (for example, high-impact sports such as tennis or jogging) or prolonged weight-bearing activities for approximately 48 hours following the injection. You should consult your doctor regarding the appropriate time to resume such activities. What other treatments are available for OA? If you have OA, there are other things you can do besides getting Synvisc-One. These include: Non-drug treatments • Avoiding activities that cause knee pain • Exercise or physical therapy • Weight loss • Removal of excess fluid from your knee Drug therapy • Pain relievers such as acetaminophen and narcotics • Drugs that reduce inflammation (signs of inflammation are swelling, pain or redness), such as aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, for example ibuprofen and naproxen) • Steroids that are injected directly into your knee When should I call my doctor? (Troubleshooting) If any of the side effects or symptoms described above appear after you are given Synvisc-One, or if you have any other problems, you should call your doctor. What did the clinical studies show? A study was conducted in 6 countries outside the United States with 21 physicians. The patients in the study had mild to moderate knee OA, moderate to severe pain, and did not have sufficient relief of their pain and symptoms with medications taken by mouth. A total of 253 patients in the study were assigned by chance to receive either a single injection of Synvisc-One (n=123 patients), or an injection of the same volume of salt water (a “Saline Control” injection) (n=130 patients). Neither the patients nor the doctors evaluating them knew which treatment they received. Any fluid that was present in the patient’s knee was removed before the injection. The patients were seen by their doctor at standard times over 6 months. Information was collected about how much pain they were experiencing doing various types of activities, how much they were limited in their daily activities by their OA, and on their overall condition. Their doctor also provided an overall rating of their OA. The main measure of the study was how much pain the subjects had doing five common types of activities over the 6 months duration of the study. Daily activity limitations and overall evaluations were also compared between the group of patients receiving Synvisc-One injection and the group receiving salt water injection. The study showed that patients receiving Synvisc-One had significantly less pain over 6 months, and felt significantly better than the patients who received the salt water injections. The difference in pain score reduction from baseline to 6 months between the Synvisc-One and salt water control injection was 0.15 out of a 5 point scale for the measurement of OA pain in the knee. What adverse events were observed in the clinical study? The following are the most common adverse events that occurred during the clinical trial of Synvisc-One: • Pain in the knee or at the injection site • Stiffness, swelling or warmth in or around the knee • Changes in the way that you walk (e.g., limping) Severe adverse events were not observed in the Synvisc-One trial. Joint infections did not occur in the injected knee in the Synvisc-One clinical trial. The most commonly occurring adverse events outside of the injected knee were headache, back pain, sore throat and the flu. One patient had a single episode of feeling faint. How do I get more information about the Synvisc-One® product?
