Battling bullies

Year in review

T

here are still several weeks left in 2011, but it is time to start cataloging some of the accomplishments of the past year. Despite some hefty surprises and unbelievable setbacks, the 2011 ledger will show a positive and productive year. The personal high — the birth of my daughter Harper — can’t be matched by any professional feta, but it was a great year. In addition to a raft of business milestones and editorial triumphs, I am particularly proud of our philanthropic contributions during the past calendar year. ✯ Smoke on the Water — Ribs for the Red Cross overcame rain to fill the riverfront with headliners Tonic and John Michael Montgomery. ✯ We sponsored the “Holiday with Heart” event at the Toledo Club, a sold-out event which benefited AIDS and HIV organizations in the local gay and lesbian community. We are also sponsoring this year’s event, set for Dec. 3. ✯ Toledo Free Press initiated a private fundraising drive that brought in $12,000 for the Toledo Symphony Orchestra trip to Carnegie Hall in New York City, which nullified a Thomas F. POUNDS request for the funds from taxpayers. ✯ “Education Champions,” a news series that highlighted local Toledo Public Schools projects and resulted in a multimedia awareness campaign that culminated in WGTE’s literacy program, First Book, winning a grant from the United Way. ✯ “Restaurant Week Toledo,” which involved more than 16 restaurants and raised funds for Leadership Toledo’s high school scholarship program. We will launch this again in late January. ✯ We partnered with and facilitated a Columbia Gas of Ohio program that provided free or reduced-cost programmable thermostats, showerheads and home energy audits. ✯ The “Egypt Experience” and Artoberfest promotions with the Toledo Museum of Art were highlights of our friendship with the museum. ✯ We participated in our first Arts Commission Art Walk series, which led to our sponsorship of the “Zygote in My Fez” poetry festival. ✯ Toledo Free Press co-sponsored a Red Cross program, “Ready U,” a 12month educational series that offered free sessions on a variety of safety and disaster-preparedness topics. The second “Ready U” series is under way. ✯ Our “Round Up Hunger” series focusing on Feed Lucas County Children resulted in a fundraising campaign through Walt Churchill’s Markets. ✯ We co-sponsored a Banned Books Week awareness series at the University of Toledo to fight censorship. This was our fifth year with the event. ✯ The Northwest Ohio Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society honored our work at a magnificent event in October. The Ohio Society for Professional Journalists award for Best Weekly Newspaper in Ohio, our third consecutive such honor, capped our year. This is not a definitive list, but we are grateful for each and every one of these partnerships and opportunities. We take none of them for granted and hope to expand upon them moving forward. ✯ Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

COURTS

By Zach Davis TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER zdavis@toledofreepress.com

Michelle Wagner was elected to the sole vacant seat in Toledo Municipal Court on Nov. 8, replacing Judge Francis X. Gorman, who is retiring due to age restrictions. Wagner, a 44-year-old Democrat, received 34,511 votes in her victory over opponents Mark Davis (16,814) and David Toska (8,824), according to unofficial results. Her endorsements included Rep. Marcy Kaptur, Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez, Toledo City Councilman Steve Steel and recent mayoral candidate Keith Wilkowski. “I’m very, very pleased with the results,” Wagner said. “I’m astounded by them. We ran to win, but I didn’t expect to win two-to-one. It’s empowering and humbling at the same time. It was a wonderful night and we are very pleased that the voters thought I was the best candidate. I am very excited to start my new position.”

A few ideas Wagner was born in Toledo’s Polish Village. She attended St. Ursula Academy, earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Bowling Green State University and earned a law degree from the University of Toledo College of Law. Wagner served as a clerk for Judge Thomas Osowick and was a city prosecutor in Sylvania for 16 years. Wagner and her husband Dave reside in south Toledo with their sons Samuel, Teddy and John Paul. She plans to hit the ground run-

ning at the start of her first term on Jan. 4. She said she has a few ideas to improve Toledo Municipal Court. Her first idea comes from Cleveland. While serving on the board of directors for Independent Advocates, she learned that Cleveland has a domestic violence docket in its municipal court. This includes a designated area where domestic violence victims go before the same judge in the same courtroom each visit. “They have laid the groundwork for how they have it going and have a good model for us to follow,” Wagner said. “The cases have to be heard anyway; why can’t they be heard in the same place? Why can’t they be heard by the same judge as opposed to seven judges? Why can’t a prosecutor be specially trained? I don’t see it as pulling resources in that respect, it’s just consolidating cases into one area, one judge and one prosecutor.” Another thing Wagner would like to see is an area where victims of domestic violence can wait, which would also feature a children’s area. “We could have a separate witness room and waiting area for the victim that provides safety and peace where they wait,” Wagner said. “Ideally it would have some small toys and coloring books for a kids’ space. They always know who the prosecutor will be, who the judge will be and that there is a place for children to keep them occupied until the case is called.” Wagner said she believes that only judges who want to work on domestic violence cases should do so and should be on a rotation of possibly two years

for the domestic violence docket, to prevent the nature of the cases from wearing on them. “That is the main goal of my tenure at Toledo Municipal Court,” Wagner said. “That is something that I hold near and dear to my heart and I would love to get that moving.”

The magistrates After beginning her first term, Wagner will also look to implement ideas to increase efficiency inside the courthouse. The ways to do that include more responsibility for the magistrates and interns from the prosecutor’s office. Under Wagner’s plan, the traffic court would be designated as a proof or plea court in which more cases would be heard and the magistrates and interns would handle minor situations such as speeding tickets, expired license plates and bounced checks. “We need to look at ways to make it more efficient,” Wagner said. “One way I’d like to do that is look into a greater use of the magistrates. Those types of cases a magistrate can handle, or even utilize interns from the prosecutor’s office. An intern and a magistrate can certainly resolve a speeding case. Divert those cases away from the judges’ docket and away from a trial docket because they cost the city money and time.” Wagner will join the six other judges in Toledo Municipal Court on Jan. 4. “I hope to fit in well and get along with all the judges there to improve the courthouse for us, the employees and everybody,” Wagner said. ✯

Health Care for Your Teenager An open, trusting relationship with your doctor is key to good health care. This is true for patients of all ages – including teenagers. Encouraging your teenager to build a relationship with their doctor now can make a big difference in their health as an adult. Providing an opportunity for your child to speak one-on-one with their physician is part of developing this relationship. Don’t be surprised if the doctor asks you to leave the exam room for part of the visit. To give your teenager the very best care, their doctor must discuss sensitive topics including diet, sleep, sexual activity, emotional concerns, and drug and alcohol use. For most teens, these conversations can be awkward – especially in front of your parents. But, these private conversations may bring to light health issues that your teen is keeping to himself / herself. And, they reduce the chances that your child looks to unreliable sources like their peers or the Internet for health information and guidance. You can also encourage your teen to take charge of their own health care by allowing them to schedule their own doctor appointments and helping them think of questions to ask their doctor. By encouraging open communication about your teenager’s health, you will teach your child that you and their doctor are valuable resources for their health and well-being.

SOME CHRYSLER EMPLOYEES AT THE TOLEDO ASSEMBLY COMPLEX APPLAUD THE EXPANSION NEWS WHILE OTHER TEXT THE DETAILS DURING A NOV. 16 ANNOUNCEMENT.

Chrysler expands Toledo operations By Duane Ramsey TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

Chrysler Group announced plans for expanding its manufacturing operations at the Toledo Assembly Complex (TAC) on Nov. 16. A $500 million investment in the facility will add 1,100 jobs to the local economy. The company will support the development and production of the next generation Jeep sport-utility vehicle in Toledo in 2013, said Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne. The investment includes expanding the plant with a 260,000-square-foot addition to the existing body shop and making additional upgrades such as a state-ofthe-art metrology center at the TAC. Upon completion of the expansion, a second shift will be added in late 2013 with more than 1,100 new workers. There are no laid-off workers at the facility so those are 1,100 new jobs with this expansion, said Mauro Pino, TAC plant manager. When the positions become available, they will be posted at www.chryslercareers.com; applications will only be accepted online and not at the plant. Marchionne said the new Jeep Dsegment SUV, which will replace the Jeep Liberty, will be built in the Toledo

facility beginning in 2013. “I am pleased to make this announcement which further demonstrates our commitment to the special relationship that Chrysler and the City of Toledo have shared. Chrysler has become a part of this community’s fabric over the decades and we continue to play our part in contributing to the city’s industrial and social development,” Marchionne said. “The decision we made clearly demonstrates the confidence we have in the Toledo Assembly Complex, in its future, and moreover, in the commitment and quality of work of the people who work here.” Marchionne was joined by Gov. John Kasich, Rep. Marcy Kaptur, Toledo Mayor Mike Bell, Pino and Ken Lortz, director of UAW Region 2B. Kasich cited the discussions his administration had with Chrysler that resulted in the State of Ohio offering the company incentives that include a 75 percent job creation tax credit for 15 years with this expansion. “Manufacturing is coming back in Ohio and it’s all about the work force with skills that are an asset to our state. We went to work today to make a better tomorrow for the next generation,” Kasich said. Kaptur received a rousing ovation from the UAW workers who attended the ceremony. “It was very heartening. I felt the

same toward them and I was cheering for them and how hard they worked to get here today. It’s a great day for Toledo,” Kaptur said. Kaptur cited President Barack Obama and the 237 members of the House who voted for the loans to the auto industry. Marchionne said Chrysler’s recovery might not have happened without those loans. “Today, Chrysler has given us the opportunity to turn our city around. We need to work together, all rowing in the same direction. We need to believe this is a great city,” Bell said. “We celebrate a very bright future for this facility and the people who work here. Today, we begin the next chapter in Toledo,” Pino said. “Jeep workers are second to none and are as tough as the vehicles you build here. It’s a credit to your attention to detail and quality in those vehicles,” Lortz said. Bruce Baumhower, president of UAW Local 12, said, “it’s a big day for our members who have been working so hard and deserve it. We take great pride in the job we do here.” Work on the manufacturing infrastructure will begin in the next few weeks with scheduled completion in 2013, according to Chrysler. The second shift is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2013. The Toledo North Assembly plant

was chosen by Chrysler to build the future Jeep SUV that will replace the Liberty. The new model will be exported to markets all over the world, Marchionne said. The plant builds the Jeep Liberty with 87 percent of its production and Dodge Nitro with 13 percent. The total TAC, which includes the Toledo Supplier Park where Jeep Wranglers are made, employs more than 2,600 people. “Jeep has a great past and an even more exciting future. Jeep is at the heart of our plans to internationalize Chrysler through access to Fiat’s distribution capabilities in Europe and Latin America,” Marchionne said. “We are proud to add a new chapter to our relationship with the City of Toledo, Lucas County and State of Ohio. We are building a solid base, together with our partner Fiat, on which to create the mosaic of the future organization. I have no doubt that Toledo will be a key piece in bringing our dream to reality.” Chrysler will spend an additional $1.3 billion to retool and upgrade its production facilities and add as many as 2,100 new jobs nationally during the next four years of its current contract with the UAW. Chrysler reported a net income of $212 million in the third quarter of 2011. October was the 19th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains, according to the company. ✯

POLITICS

By Zach Davis TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER zdavis@toledofreepress.com

Arbors at Sylvania in Toledo has a beef with Ohio Gov. John Kasich and his staff. Arbors at Sylvania, a provider of short-term rehabilitation solutions and long-term nursing care, requested that the governor visit some of the elderly guests and speak to them about politics. Their request was declined. It is the manner in which the rejection was allegedly delivered from Assistant to the Chief of Staff Karrie Rench, however, that has many at the facility upset. “She told me that he gets thousands and thousands of requests from people who want to get their picture taken with him and he does not have time to meet with ‘those people’,” Life Enrichment Director Lynne Carroll said. The words “those people” have not gone over well with members of the facility, who at the time of the conver-

sation were listening in through the speakerphone to see if the governor would be visiting. Carroll said a message left with the governor’s communication department for comment on Nov. 16 was not returned. “He sent us an answer CARROLL [saying] ‘those people.’ What people?” said Mattiren Gilmore, a retired licensed practical nurse. “We do not want to be addressed like that. We are senior adults and we like to be called that. Treat us like we are human beings before that then maybe we could go out and help you get some votes — but now, no.” “We are the people that have been voting all our lives,” 96-year-old retired watchmaker Louis Pertcheck said. “We are still part of the city, we should be considered. “We are all older people. We

should not just be discarded from the normal group of people; you shouldn’t treat us just like we don’t count anymore.” Carroll said she has not given up, continuing to send requests hoping that the governor will be able to make it to speak to them about politics, even if it’s not until next year or beyond. She also added that the facility just wants to meet with him and would still be happy to welcome him “with open arms.” However, Carroll said that all attempts have been less than fruitful. “They understand he is very busy but they are open to any time, any day this year, next year or three years from now,” Carroll said. “It’s getting comical now. I said, ‘I’ll send a request every day‚‘ and [Rench] said, ‘I’ll send a denial every day.’” Described as “a very political building,” Arbors of Sylvania has hosted government figures such as Toledo Mayor Mike Bell and City Council members Wilma Brown, George Sarantou, Joe McNamara, D. Michael Collins and Adam Martinez. ✯

ONE YEAR LATER

By Zach Davis TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER zdavis@toledofreepress.com

With the cold of winter quickly approaching, Columbia Gas of Ohio’s Home Performance Solutions program is looking to help prevent Toledoans from wasting energy. One year ago, Toledo Free Press profiled Tim Yenrick, the executive director of the American Red Cross Greater Toledo Chapter, as he invited Columbia Gas KOZAK into his home to perform the program’s energy audit. After making all of the recommended changes, Yenrick said he has saved $296.02 during the first 10 months of this year compared to last year. “I have an older house with some drafty areas,” Yenrick said. “I found out I had more drafty areas than I thought I had. I’m glad we did it. They come in and they thoroughly test the house. After I had all the stuff done, they came back and retested it to see if it actually made a difference and it did quite a bit.” During the first 10 months of 2010, Yenrick’s household consumed 1,042 Ccf (hundred cubic feet) of natural gas, totaling $1,224.34. In the first 10 months of 2011 with the changes made, Yenrick’s home has used 731 Ccf, equating to a bill of $928.32. “The Home Performance Solutions program is designed to help people where they are losing energy in their home,” Columbia Gas of

Ohio Communications and Community Relations Manager Chris Kozak said. “The first step to lowering someone’s bill is finding out where they are losing that energy. It is a basement-toceiling inspection. They take that information and present the customer with the idea of what needs to be done, the approximate cost and the approximate savings.” The $50 energy audit determined that Yenrick needed insulation in four areas of the attic, one exterior wall and one minimal pipe insulation job in the basement. It also determined that his gas furnace was efficient and did not need to be replaced. Yenrick said he made every recommended change, which was estimated at $2,786.73. Columbia Gas, however, also provides rebates of up to 70 percent if its customers make more than one of the improvements. In some areas, rebates are as high as 90 percent. “It’s always nice in this day and age with the economy for a nonprofit director to [save money],” Yenrick said. Yenrick also discovered an unexpected bonus to the inspection when the workers found a leak on a gas pipe entering his basement. His gas was turned off and workers were brought out to fix it. “This is not only an efficiency inspection but a safety inspection as well,” Kozak said. “It was good we caught it when we did. At the end of the day, his house was safer as well as more energy efficient.” The energy audit process takes between three and four hours.

READY U

Winter weather safety outlined at Ready U session By Sarah Ottney TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Frostbite, hypothermia, power out-

ages and snow emergency levels were among the topics addressed by local weatherman “Blizzard Bill” Spencer during a recent Ready U presentation about winter weather safety.

13abc’s meteorologist told the group of area residents gathered Nov. 14 at the Main Library for the free, hour-long program that this winter was likely to start slow, but pack a

wallop early next year. “We’re probably not going to see a lot of snow in November and probably not much in December either,” Spencer said. “It’s really going to kick in, like last year, right after the holidays, especially the middle of January, that six- to eight-week period where we had a whole winter’s worth, a record amount of SPENCER snow. I think that could happen again. There are indications of a very active storm track. We just have to be ready.” Th e best way to protect yourself during winter weather is to think ahead and use common sense, Spencer said. “Always think ahead to the worse scenario and you should be fine,” Spencer said.

Emergency supplies Put emergency supplies in your vehicle and make sure to keep the gas tank at least half full to prevent the fuel line from freezing. Always have a cell phone and car charger with you. If you get stranded, remain inside the vehicle. Tie a red scarf to the antenna so your vehicle can be seen by tow trucks and snow plows. Keep windows slightly ajar and run the car’s heater 10 to 15 minutes per hour. Make sure the exhaust pipe is clear. “Don’t set out walking unless you see a building because you could lose your way,” said Spencer, adding that distance can also be distorted by blowing snow. “You could be 30 feet from your car and not even know it and freeze to death.” If you do leave the vehicle, consider tying a roll of twine to your vehicle so you can find your way back, Spencer said. When a winter storm watch is declared, it’s a good idea to stock up on food and supplies — but stick to nonperishable food so it won’t go to waste if the storm doesn’t happen or if there’s a power outage, Spencer said. If purchasing canned foods, make sure you have a manual can opener. A watch means winter storm conditions are possible within the next 36 -48 hours and residents are advised to review emergency plans and monitor local weather reports. A warning means life-threatening conditions have already begun or will begin within 24 hours and residents should take precautions immediately.

If power is lost, turn off or disconnect all appliances, so there’s not a surge when the power comes back on. Leave one light on so you can tell when the power returns. Flashlights are safer than candles. Eliminate unnecessary travel, since traffic lights may be out as well. Food in an unopened refrigerator can last about four hours. Food in a full, unopened freezer can last up to 48 hours, or 24 hours in a halffull freezer. “If the power outage is short-term, refrigerated food should be fine, but if it goes on for 24 hours, the food’s done. Toss it. Just get rid of it. Really play it safe. We don’t want anyone to get food poisoning,” Spencer said. A level 1 snow emergency rating means motorists are urged to drive cautiously. Level 2 means motorists should use extreme caution and should drive only if necessary. Level 3 means roads are closed to all motorists except essential emergency personnel and other drivers may be subject to arrest. If your job may require you to drive during a level 3 emergency, consider asking your employer for a letter in case you get pulled over, Spencer said. The best winter outfi t consists of warm, loose-fitting clothing in several layers, including a hat and gloves. Never use a generator, grill, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning device inside the home, including a garage, basement or any enclosed area. When using such devices outdoors, make sure they are located away from doors, windows and vents that would allow carbon monoxide inside the house. “It’s amazing how fast levels can build and become dangerous,” said Tom Barnhizer, deputy director of Lucas County Emergency Management Agency, who was in attendance at the event. Free carbon monoxide detectors were given to all attendees. Ready U, a yearlong series presented by the Red Cross of Greater Toledo and the Lucas County Emergency Management Agency, is designed to educate the public and prepare individuals and families for potential emergencies in Northwest Ohio. The next Ready U event, called “Planning Your Victory Garden,” is set for 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Anderson Activity Room, 1833 S. Holland-Sylvania Road, in Maumee.

HOLIDAY EVENTS

Charity Gayla at Toledo Club Dec. 3 Ask me

A fashion show, drag queen performances and an allaround good time are in store for those who attend the Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla, the calendar event of the season for Toledo’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The 34th annual event is set for Dec. 3 at 5:30 p.m. with proceeds benefiting the Pride of Toledo Foundation and AIDS research by Dr. Joan Duggan of the University of Toledo Medical Center. “It’s just grown tremendously. It started in 1977 with 16 in attendance and last year, it sold out,” said Rick Cornett, a member of the Gayla’s LARSEN board of directors. The board chooses two different charities to support every year. The Pride Foundation hosted the successful Toledo Pride parade this summer, said board member Andrew Larsen. “That’s an organization that really needs some assistance to make next year’s event even bigger and better than it was this year,” he said. The Gayla often supports AIDS charities because so much research and work still needs to be done, Cornett said. “It’s the 30th year since AIDS has come to the surface and no matter who we support, we always try to keep that in focus,” he said. The Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla also started a fund with the Toledo Community Foundation, which will help the board manage its funds and give throughout the

year. “That’s going to enable us to support many more charities than the two to three we do now,” Larsen said. Last year’s event raised $7,500 with more than 200 in attendance. This year, Cornett said the goal is $15,000 with corporate sponsorships and 300 in attendance. Registrants can make memorial donations in the name of Richard Flock, who recently passed away. “He was an icon, especially to this event. He was one of the founding members,” Cornett said. Drag queens MaKayla Sinclaire Styles and Twila Starr will also perCORNETT form at the Gayla. Each will sing a Christmas song and another “regular, fun song,” Cornett said. In addition, Cityboyz Fashion Menswear will present a mini fashion show. Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla ornaments will be on sale for $10 at the event, Cornett said. Each ornament is marked with the year, and if they sell well, the Gayla will release a new tree-trimmer each year. Cornett emphasized that the whole community is invited. “Everyone’s welcome, we want everyone to come,” he said. “A lot of people think it’s just for gays and lesbians, but it’s not.” The Gayla will take place at The Toledo Club, 235 14th St. Reservations are $65 and must be made by Nov. 25. To register, visit www.hwhcharitygayla.org or call Cornett at (419) 470- 3937. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor of the Gayla. ✯ — Brigitta Burks

We lose too many young people in this town when they go to college and don’t usually come back. We need to give them the tools to keep them here and to educate them. They are our future leaders.” Berry said she felt Restaurant Week Toledo was a success for her business as well. “It brought people to our restaurant who had not been there before, which is nice, and they had a wonderful dining experience,” Berry said. “I would encourage more of the local restaurants to get involved. I think they will be surprised. I’m happy to be a part of it.” Margot Estes, co-chair of Restaurant Week Toledo, said Restaurant Week is something that’s done in most mid-size and larger cities nationwide and is a way to highlight Toledo’s culinary options. “Toledo has so many fantastic restaurants and we want to make sure people are aware of them,” Estes said.

m I legally required to report child sexual abuse? Even if I’m not, should I report it anyway? Don’t waste time asking questions. The answers are the same as they were before the Jerry Sandusky child abuse charges and the alleged Penn State cover-up. “Everyone should report child abuse or neglect,” said Dean Sparks, executive director of Lucas County Children Services. “We have a moral and ethical responsibility to protect our children.” Sparks said people who legally must report abuse to children services or to the police include schoolteachers, school employees, docSPARKS tors, nurses, social workers, counselors and anyone who works with kids, Sparks said, reading from the Ohio Revised Code. Many types of professions aren’t listed in this mandated reporting category, “but let’s get real, anyone with any integrity or concern about children should report it,” he said. People should look for a variety of signs if they don’t witness something as blatant as a person violating a child. “That is an obvious sign, no question about it,” Sparks said. Other signs that might not seem so obvious include: ✯ Adults who have relationships mostly with children, rather than people their own age. ✯ Adults who give expensive gifts or treats to children. ✯ Adults who spend time alone with a child, in particular when it goes against a policy established by a particular organization, such as the Boy Scouts. “People who abuse children are good at setting up kids, separating them from the crowd, nurturing them and grooming them,” Sparks said. He said it is better to report something suspicious than to remain quiet and let a possible case of abuse continue. Reporting suspicions gets an investigation going, but that doesn’t mean abuse will always be uncovered. Sparks sais his staff is good at what it does and will thoroughly look into an accusation. Sparks said the Sandusky case appalls him because it reportedly wasn’t

just everyday people looking possible for signs of abuse. According to the grand jury report, people actually saw the abuse happening and still did nothing. “It just blows my mind,” he said. “It is not about doing what you are legally required to do; it is

about doing what is right.” To report a possible case of abuse, call (419) 213CARE. ✯

One Meal A Day.

Not many of us are content to eat just one meal per day. Yet, that is the reality for many of the children in Lucas County. Due to circumstances in their household, the only meal they receive may be in the school lunchroom or at Feed Lucas County Children sponsored sites. And, due to the huge need in our area, even that one meal a day could be in jeopardy. Feed Lucas County Children is home to the largest hot meal summer program in the entire state of Ohio. We need your assistance to continue to help those children who need it most. More than a quarter of our children live below the poverty line.

By Emily Tucker TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Men in the Toledo area can walk into V Concept and walk out groomed, relaxed and dressed in designer clothing from around the world. Valentine Ononye, owner and shopkeeper of locations in Perrysburg and Sylvania, wants residents to see his selection and know they can purchase affordable, quality clothing. He is confident that he can sell “luxury for hometown prices” to those who are progressing with their careers. Ononye is a reflection of what V Concept, 5630 N. Main St. in Sylvania, offers. Dressed in a dark button-up dress shirt and designer suit, he wears the latest fashions he sells in the store. He accessorizes with a belt and socks that complement the rest of his wardrobe. Ononye’s clothing fits perfectly and he wants men to have that same comfort. As a confident businessman, he is enthusiastic about helping every client dress as a professional. “You won’t find men wearing jeans and sneakers to work,” he said. “It’s important that what you buy is the best so you can wear it over and over again.” His shelves are lined with handmade clothing created by worldclass designers like Armani, Versace, Ben Sherman, Canali, Mirto, Pal Zileri and Lacoste. Suits, ties, shirts and more are available in a variety of colors, and Ononye monitors the latest fashion trends. He said paisleys are a returning fashion trend, especially independent paisley, as seen on a white shirt in his store with random paisley print floating across it. Ononye said he is happy to offer men a variety so they don’t feel like they have to dress similarly every day. V Concept is an outlet of V Couture at 123 N. Indiana Ave. in Perrysburg, which Ononye said caters to “men of discriminating taste who are value conscious.” Ononye sells clothing from V Couture for 25-50 percent off at V Concept. “Three of my passions are busi-

ness, style and people,” he said. “We do our best work to make sure clients look good, feel good and stand out.” Ononye has traveled the world and visited fashion houses in New York, Japan, Italy, France and elsewhere. Collections are bought one year in advance, and he recently visited the Versace showroom for next fall. He said he wants to bring in world-class designers with quality products that are not available anywhere else in this area.

V Concept brings worldwide fashion to Sylvania

Grand opening The grand opening and ribboncutting ceremony was Nov. 11. Ononye and Heidi Joy, store manager of V Concept, said the store provides “the whole range” so clients can build a complete wardrobe, including belts, socks, shoes and even shaving cream and cologne. She has worked with Ononye since the grand opening of V Couture, and she was as excited about the new store as Ononye. “We believe it’s imperative for us to showcase what we’re selling in an excellent environment,” Ononye said. After walking through the entrance, a men’s grooming center is on the right, providing services such as haircuts, hot towel shaves and facials. Next to the grooming center is a lounge area where customers can watch television, or children can play video games. “We want to provide all types of services and differentiate ourselves from other [businesses],” he said. Ononye said when buying a handmade suit, customers are paying for the finest material, workmanship and longevity. Clients can be measured to have their clothing tailored for that perfect fit, and there is a multitude of clothing that can be bought from the rack. He shows clients they are purchasing fine clothing by folding an Armani suit into a small bundle, then unfolding it to show that it will not wrinkle. He tells clients that a suit is worth purchasing because a father could potentially hand down the clothing to a son. “We aren’t just building a store, but

building a lifestyle,” Ononye said. “If someone wants to look a certain way, this is the best place to shop. With the downturn of the economy, it’s become even more important for men to dress better to be competitive.” Joy said the past nine months have been filled with intense collaboration with those working on the store’s design. Ononye’s wife designed the space, and local architects and engineering firms provided the renderings. V Concept is 1,444 square feet and about half the size of V Couture. Ononye said renting the space in Sylvania is expensive, like paying for a five-bedroom house up front. “The designers want the store to fit in with the area yet stand out from others,” Joy said. “Valentine wants to come out with the best right off the bat.”

More businesses are banking with Key. Shouldn’t you?

World-class city Ononye said he chose Sylvania as the location for the outlet store because he considers it a “world-class city,” and the city, residents and local businesses have been welcoming. “It took us a while to get everything together, but local merchants and even City Council have given us support,” he said. “I’m very excited to be part of the community.” V Couture, located at Perrys Landing Shopping Center in Perrysburg, offers made-to-measure clothing and services such as wardrobe consultation and personal shopping. Ononye shows men what’s new, in season, and how to color coordinate. “I’ve seen a lot of men wear blue shirts,” he said. “Men don’t mind

wearing blue almost every day because they’ve done it their whole life. But at V Concept we can cater to skin tone, body shape and career.” Ononye said regular clients are from Perrysburg and Sylvania, but the store also brings in customers from southeast Michigan, Columbus, Dayton and Cleveland. Also, he has customers from New York, California, London and Norway, who have purchased orders online. He said a goal is to continue to utilize social media in order to engage and interact with clients on a regular basis. Future plans are to offer women’s and children’s clothing, plus open additional locations in other cities. “What we are doing is educating people,” he said. “It excites the customers and makes them feel confident in what they are wearing.” ✯

A VIEW FROM THE GULCH

E

very November I can’t help but to take a few moments to stop and think about Milton Friedman. The “Economist for Liberty� died this month in 2006 at the age of 94. He was one of the few recipients of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences who, in my opinion, actually deserved it. In reading some of his essays, I realized that many of them could have been written in the last few years or months. In 1962 he wrote his seminal work, “Capitalism and Freedom,� a work still valid and worth reading Gary L. today. To quote: “The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than any inherent instability of the private economy.� This was not a mere political slogan or an off-the-cuff remark, this was a conclusion reached after countless years of painstakingly assembling data on monetary policy, banking and the economy. Friedman believed that there is no way to improve the lot of ordinary people that is better than the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system. To raise the level of wealth in this county we need to be free, not have a paternal government that redistributes the wealth. Redistribution of wealth is what a dictator does. The role of government needs to be more of an umpire, not a provider. The umpire enforces the rules, mediates conflicts and maintains a free field of play; the umpire does not determine the outcomes or advantage one team over another. Friedman observed, “Men’s freedoms can conflict, and when they do, one man’s freedom must be limited to preserve another’s.� As a chief justice of the United States once put it, “My freedom to move my fist must be limited by the proximity of your chin.� If we as a society put equality before freedom, we will get neither. However, if we put freedom before equality, we will get a high degree of both. One of the most important facts about the free market is that no exchange takes place unless both of the parties benefit. Government is the problem, not the solution. If I am a private company owner and I fail, I close the business — unless I can get a government

We miss you, Milt! subsidy or am determined too big to fail. If a government program fails, it is expanded. Even if the initial reason for the program no longer exists, it will find another reason to continue existing. The government is simply spending too much! Other prizewinning economists, who shall remained unnamed, believe that the government is spending too little and that borrowing will stimulate the economy and reduce unemployment. The government is not only spending too RATHBUN much, it is spending on the wrong things. One of my favorite sayings is, “There is no limit to the good dogooders will do with other people’s money.� This is especially true if the do-gooder’s spend someone else’s money on someone else. They are not concerned about how much money it is and they are not concerned about what they get for it. That’s government. In 1975, Friedman said in an interview, “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.� As the budget super-committee pretends to be serious and claims it can fix our problems, remember that it will succeed at its agenda but will not succeed at what is best for the country. Its agenda is to keep you more and more dependent on the government and to keep buying your votes so it can keep its power. We need to vote with our creativity, our productivity, our self-reliance and our money. I will not invest in the things that government invests in because there is no way to make money if government is involved. This is not to say you cannot get money from being involved with the government — just ask the executive of Solyndra — but no way to make money. The wealth pie is not limited in size, it is ever expanding in a free market and ever shrinking in a statist market. The only way to save this country for future generations is to get back to self-reliance and start creating things that people want and need, not what Uncle Sam thinks we need or believes is good for us. Next time we will talk about our debt and the path we are on and what the final destination will be if we

Foreign investment: Unrecognized risk

T

his may come as news to some, but we’re not operating in a global market — at least not anymore. That’s what investors ought to be telling themselves if they expect to be profitable for the next 10-15 years. Many investors today are sitting on portfolios with a substantial amount of foreign currency risk. Most are completely unaware of the fact, and even fewer understand it. During the past 25 years, the dollar has gone through a prolonged and substantial decline in value versus other global currencies. Today’s dollar is worth only a fraction of its nearest peak under Reagan in the mid-1980s. As this story has become popularized, much of the investing public has piled into traditional dollar hedges including foreign stocks, oil and gold, many of which have soared to all-time highs in recent years. (Note: Not all investors have made money riding this wave; look no further than clients who got fleeced buying gold bullion through Goldline, the dealer touted by Glenn Beck and others. We tried to warn them, but no one wanted to listen.)

The problem is that, unbeknownst phase.

What is most frustrating about frontier markets, so-called because they are in countries that resemble the state in which many investors find emerging markets but are thought to themselves is that it is through no fault be even earlier in their “emergence” of their own. The concepts discussed

here are not simple or easy to understand; they are the kinds of things that investors pay advisers to help guide them through. Unfortunately, many trusted advisers have done their clients a tremendous disservice by continuing to push clients into anti-dollar positions. Advisers should be well aware of the downfall of the dollar since 1985 and have the foresight to understand that it will be turning up — and know how to help their clients take advantage. Sadly, this is rarely how things work in the financial services industry. Very few advisers spend their time doing the research to understand these issues any more than their clients do. After all, it’s infinitely easier to show a client a mountain chart of a foreign fund or gold during the past 15-20 years and convince them to buy as opposed to pushing a downtrodden domestic fund that hasn’t made a dime over the past decade. Now we find ourselves having arrived at age-old lesson No. 2, again one we have written about time and again: Investing with hindsight is

never a good idea. Investing with a perspective confined to history can be equated to driving but using only rearview mirrors to steer — it works just fine until the road curves. And that’s exactly what has happened; the road has curved. Those investments that have done well during the past decade or two surely won’t do as well in the next 10 to 20 years. After all, economic conditions today are completely different. The conditions that resulted in gains for anti-dollar investments no longer exist — so why would the results be the same? ✯ Dock David Treece is a discretionary money manager with Treece Investment Advisory Corp (www.Treece Investments.com) and is licensed with FINRA through Treece Financial Services Corp.

D3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

The unique challenges of mid-major football NOTE: This is the 14th installment of a weekly series in which staff writer Mike Bauman will follow sixth-year Toledo senior cornerback Desmond Marrow for the 2011 season. By Mike Bauman TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER mbauman@toledofreepress.com

Most teams in college football have the luxury of getting into the rhythm of playing games on Saturdays. But players like sixth-year senior cornerback Desmond Marrow and his University of Toledo teammates arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t awarded that type of preparation at mid-major football programs. For the Rockets and their MidAmerican Conference (MAC) opponents, the opportunity to play on national TV often comes on weekdays, presenting unique challenges to student-athletes at mid-major schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real tough, especially for the guys that have, like, one or two classes on game day,â&#x20AC;? said Marrow, who leads the team with 66 tackles, 13 pass deflections, 11 pass breakups and is tied

for a squad-best two interceptions this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of odd. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to go to class. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people studying and taking tests at the hotels. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a lot.â&#x20AC;? Out of UTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12 regular season games in 2011, only six were on Saturdays. After playing their last Saturday contest of the year Oct. 22 against Miami (OH), the Rockets had backto-back Tuesday night games. With Toledoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final two contests being on Fridays, UT does not have a traditional bye week this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very challenging, but at the same time I give a lot of credit to â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least me personally â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of teachers who are just very understanding of the situation,â&#x20AC;? junior linebacker Dan Molls said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They realize our schedule and just what goes on. It definitely makes it easier, but at the same time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very elite group for those that can actually come and play Division I football.â&#x20AC;? The longets break the Rockets have had between games in 2011 was nine days, which happened twice. Toledo had nine days between its matchup

with the Miami RedHawks on Oct. 22 and Northern Illinois on Nov. 1 and between Western Michigan on Nov. 8 and Central Michigan on Nov. 18. UT head coach Tim Beckman said that 20 players had class at eight oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock in the morning on Nov. 9 after playing the Broncos, a game which started at 8:02 p.m. the night before and lasted until 12:18 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of them were there,â&#x20AC;? Beckman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One was five minutes late so he had to do a little extracurricular, but I was proud of the way that the kids did that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also got a stat â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give you the exact number â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but I know it was over 30 young men had tests on [the morning after the WMU game]. I think that would have been an awful tough thing to ask a young man that played football until 12:30 [a.m.] and then go take a test the next morning.â&#x20AC;? Since Marrow has already received his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in communication with a minor in criminal justice, he elected to take four online classes this semester. However, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watched the line between focusing on school

and focusing on football get blurred with some of his younger teammates this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to be tough,â&#x20AC;? Marrow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen [sophomore offensive lineman] Erik Carlson studying for a test right before a meeting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got guys after the game and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got tests at, like, eight in the morning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a lot, especially with the younger guys â&#x20AC;&#x201D; freshmen and sophomores. Most of those guys actually play, so it has to be tough.â&#x20AC;? After giving up 78 points in its first four MAC games, the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense surrendered 126 combined points in those contests with NIU and WMU. Marrow didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defensive woes on the schedule, though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just the little things: missed tackles, missed assignments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things like that,â&#x20AC;? Marrow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got a bunch of guys in different spots. I mean, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing a position youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never played before and you get two days of practice just to learn it. But I mean, it just comes down to making plays. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to make more plays.â&#x20AC;? â&#x153;Ż

Jeff Lamb is bringing the party to Saturday nights with his self-produced “The Man Cave with Jeff Lamb” on 104.7 WIOT, more than 15 years after his morning show last aired on the station. “It’s good to be back at WIOT,” Lamb said. “They’re the biggest signal in town and a great station with a great reputation. They were my first live radio show.” Lamb purchased the Saturday 9 p.m. to midnight block from WIOT, replacing “House of Hair,” and he is selling the ad space himself. The 13week agreement began with his first show Nov. 5. He holds a party every Saturday with approximately 25 guests and broadcasts live from his “Man Cave,” which includes a big-screen TV, a keg of beer, snacks and plenty of seating. “I called WIOT and told them my idea, which was to buy the time for a lot more than they were making on a Saturday night and I would sell it myself,” Lamb said. “They thought it was great. Hopefully we can make a dent and they’ll keep me around. We’ll look at it in 13 weeks and hopefully we’ll pick it up again and keep going. It’s a lot of fun to be back in radio and doing something nobody else is doing.”

Lamb is optimistic about the show’s chances, although he admits sales are not his area of expertise. “I’ve called people that I either knew or that were sponsors of my shows before,” he said. “I don’t really have to explain myself to them. They know what it is I do. I’m trying to limit the spots so it’s not a bunch of commercials with a song in the middle.” One goal is to emphasize local content, including featuring a local band each week. The show also aims to provide original content such as sketches. “At 53 years old, I’ve put all my eggs in the radio basket and radio changed on me,” Lamb said. “It isn’t radio’s fault or my fault. It’s just where I am. If you’re going to compete against iPods and the ability to burn CDs, you better give more than just music. They can do that without you. What I’m doing is what we need more of. We’ll find out if I’m right. I could be totally wrong. If that’s the case, I’ll walk away from it and at least I’ll know. I expect people appreciate content.” Lamb had to adjust to hosting the show and doing sketches solo since

his former partner Mark Benson is engaged in other projects. “I decided if Mark’s not available then I wouldn’t even consider another partner,” he said. “Mark and I are hand and glove in this town. I worked with other people in Peoria, and it just wasn’t the same. Not everybody wants to suspend belief and play along with characters. The first radio partner I had in Peoria thought it was stupid. He just didn’t get it. If you play along, it works. But it doesn’t work if everybody is not on board. I wish I had Mark here. “We had a lot of fun together and we learned a lot together. Everything we learned, it seems like they’re doing it different now. I still believe there is room for that kind of radio.”

Jeff Lamb brings party back to WIOT

Radio since birth Radio has been part of Lamb’s life since birth, and he knew early on it was what he wanted to do. According to Lamb, his father was in radio in Flint, Mich., and his sister made a record when she was 5-years-old that sold a million copies. Lamb also has one brother in television and another who has been in and out of radio with him and helped him run an ad agency in Flint. “My dad was the first person in the country to broadcast from home,” Lamb said. “When I grew up, there was always a studio in the basement. He had his on-air studio and his recording studio down there. We always had bands over recording stuff. He was recording records for people. He had a jingle company. We moved out to Grand Blanc [Mich.,] and he put in a nicer studio. All the ad agencies were using him. I was doing ‘Buffalo Dick’ out of there and he was doing his radio show. It was almost around the clock, something going on.” He first came to Toledo in 1990 after “Buffalo Dick” was canceled. “It was kind of like ‘Howdy Doody’ on steroids,” Lamb said. “For the time, it was a little edgy. When ‘Buffalo Dick’ got canceled, I was bummed. I was disillusioned about whether to get out of it. In 1989, Pete Cavanaugh, the general manager at WIOT, called me and asked if I’d be interested in doing a morning show down here. I came down to meet everybody and he hired me right then. He envisioned all these characters working with the morning show. God bless him for that, because it sure put us in a good place.” Later, Lamb took a job with 94.5 WXKR and came back to WIOT be-

fore moving to Peoria, Ill., in 1996 to host a TV show. He came back to WXKR from 1998-2002 before he was let go due to budget cuts. He performed odd jobs such as a DJing at clubs until starting the new show.

Back in the groove “It isn’t really a great bucket list item for a 53-year-old man to be hosting trivia and karaoke for your living,” Lamb said. After nine years off the air, Lamb is starting to get back into the groove of radio. “It’s a little bit nerve-racking,” Lamb said. “I’ve been out of it for a while, and I was never really a board operator. Mark would run the board, and I just did voices and characters. It’s kind of coming back to me. One night I woke up at 2 a.m. and was done sleeping. I have no real schedule now. By noon I

had five bits written and recorded.” Those bits include characters such as Principal Prickley, Gus “BootyKicker” Washington Lincoln Carver Brown, Mr. Know-it-all, Jack Hammer and Phillip the Magnificent. Phillip is a take on Dustin Hoffman’s character from the movie “Rain Man.” “We ran him for governor, and we got a cease and desist from MGM,” Lamb said. “They told us we couldn’t do it anymore, so we just changed his name to Phillip. That cracked me up. I just changed the names, and everyone knew who it was. They couldn’t stop me from using the voice. They couldn’t stop the content. All they could do is change the name.” “The Man Cave with Jeff Lamb” airs Saturday nights from 9 p.m. to midnight. Any bands interested in being featured can contact Lamb through his website at JeffLamb.com. ✯

Kistler, Ford dealers donate through box tops program Toledoans can donate money to the school of their choice through Box Tops for Education, a General Mills program available at Kistler Ford and other Ford dealerships. General Mills started Box Tops for Education in 1996, giving customers a chance to clip cereal box tops in exchange for points. The box tops equal money that General Mills donates to the schools. Since its inception, the program has generated $400 million. This year, Ford Motor Co. offered General Mills and program participants a way to get box tops or “eBoxTops” online. “The partnership with Ford is a major step for Box Tops for Education as we continue to offer new ways to activate the program beyond the packaged goods category,” said Mark Ad-

dicks, senior vice president and chief marketing offi cer for General Mills in a news release. For each eBoxTop, General Mills donates 10 cents to the respective school. Ford is the first automotive partner to join the program, according to the news release. Through Ford’s involvement, participants can earn eBoxTops for their schools in three ways: requesting a brochure, watching videos online at www.forddrivesboxtops.com or purchasing a Ford vehicle between now and Nov. 30. Participants are prompted with a list of several schools to donate to, including several local schools. “It’s a really easy program,” said Jennifer Moore, controller at Kistler Ford. “It took me less than 10 minutes [to watch the videos].” Community involvement is im-

TOLEDO MUSEUM OF ART

By Jason Mack TOLEDO FREE PRESS WEB EDITOR jmack@toledofreepress.com

The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) is exploring the concepts of size and scale with the new exhibit, “Small Worlds,” opening Nov. 18. “Small Worlds” includes more than 40 pieces from five artists with dioramas, sculptures, photos, a video installation and many other works featuring art on a small scale. “I wanted to think about how viewers will experience the work in the gallery,” TMA Associate Director Amy Gilman said. “Some pieces are very small, and you are very large in relation to them. When you’re around things that are really small, all of a sudden your body feels bigger.” Despite the name of the exhibit, not all of the pieces are small. “I was originally thinking about it only being small work and miniature things,” Gilman said. “It would be a real kind of jewel box show. As I kept thinking, I decided that would be really fun but it would be kind of one-note. I was interested in the smallness of scale. It doesn’t have to be small. It can be small in relation to something else.” One object small in relation is a 65-square-foot house called the “XS.” It is the smallest model home built by the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, weighs 4,000 pounds and was built on a 7-foot-by-11-foot utility trailer. The house includes a kitchenette, a living room and a loft bedroom capable of holding a queen-size bed. “One of the things I wanted to do is take the idea of smallness and bring it into our world,” Gilman said. “I wanted to highlight something I’ve noticed, which is a small house movement. It began before the economic downturn, but it has really gained momentum since 2008. “It is a reaction to the ‘bigger is

better’ view of homes. It has everything you need to live in it and is beautifully constructed and designed, but it isn’t 10,000 square feet. The smallest house I could find is this 65-squarefoot home. Including that piece in the show is a way of reaching beyond the art world into design, architecture and the green living movement.” The new exhibit also features houses from Toledo. Northwest Ohio resident Charles Kanwischer created graphite pencil drawings specifically for “Small Worlds” of houses located within a halfmile radius of the museum. “I love that Charlie did this,” Gilman said. “We had talked about the themes for the show and how you would define a small world differently. He said he was thinking about how the show is centered at the museum and he wanted to make it something personal to Toledo. It says something about artists melding their ideas in dialogue with other things and the place that they live.” The museum is working new ideas of its own into the exhibit with an online catalog accessible through scannable QR codes. The catalog is designed like a world map, featuring information and content from the artists. “It’s the first time the museum has done something quite this extensive,” Gilman said. “We’ve had online catalogs for about the past year. It is much more interactive.” “Small Worlds” is on display in the Canaday Gallery until March 25. The Toledo Museum of Art is located at 2445 Monroe St. “This show is like my children coming all together,” Gilman said. “It would be impossible for me to choose a favorite out of the show, because I’m the one who chose them all. Some of them would not be shown together normally. It’s because of this specific show. It’s been a great way for us to bring different kinds of artwork to the museum that would not normally be shown here.” ✯

There was something about that 1981 movie that introduced Harrison Ford’s fedora-wearing, whip-wielding Indiana Jones that captivated Michael W. Smith. “When I first saw ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ I was smitten. What was it about this guy named John Williams who created something musically that blew me away? ‘Raiders’ was really the first [instrumental soundtrack] that really got my attention. And I just fell in love with not only that soundtrack, but everything he’s done since then,” Smith said. It’s no surprise that the singer-

songwriter eventually wrote some instrumentals. “I sit down to write a pop song, and I’m writing stuff that sounds like it’s right out of a movie, and I guess it’s just my passion for film music,” he said during a call from his hometown of Franklin, Tenn. “I love writing that kind of stuff, and I think that I dipped into a well that I didn’t even know existed inside of me.” The Grammy Award winner dabbled in music sans lyrics with his first two holiday albums, “Christmas” in 1989 and “Christmastime” in 1998. “My big shot at it was doing ‘Freedom,’ which came out in 2000,” he recalled. “That’s one of the most talked about records that people ask

about when I meet them backstage; they seem to really love that album.” Smith is excited for the release of his 23rd album and his second all-instrumental disc, “Glory,” due in stores Nov. 22. “I think the beauty of instrumental music is that it can mean one thing to some person on the other side of the world and mean something completely different to the guy in L.A.,” the composer said. “There’s a bit of a mystery to it. This music can be healing to people, it can make people feel happy, it can make people feel optimistic and change the course of their life for good.” Smith said two songs on “Glory” really resonate with him. “ ‘The Patriot’ and ‘Heroes’ were very much inspired by my heart and love for our men and women who fight and defend our country — the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Special Forces, Coast Guard, anybody who has served or is serving — both those songs are sort of, I take my hat off to the men and women in uniform,” he said. Fans who have tickets to Smith’s sold-out “It’s a Wonderful Christmas” show with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra at Stranahan Theater will hear some new songs on Nov. 26. “There are a few things on the ‘Glory’ record that have a bit of Christmas feel; ‘Whitaker’s Wonder’ is one that we’re going to do, and I think we’re going to do ‘Glory Overture’ and ‘Redemption,’ ” he said. “We’re looking forward to Toledo; it’s our first Christmas show of the season,” Smith said. “I think it’s just the most beautiful time of the year.” The 54-year-old helped put contemporary Christian music in the spotlight with several hits, including “Friends” and “Pray for Me.” He also hit the pop charts with “Place in This World” in 1990 and “I Will Be Here for You”  in 1992. “[Faith is] the most important thing in my life; it makes me tick,” Smith said. “There’s not a whole lot of anxiety in my life; I’m not nervous, I’m not uptight. I’m very much at peace and I think that all comes from my faith. “And I think if you can find yourself living stress-free and really being driven by your faith and live for doing things for other people more than doing things for yourself, I can’t imagine life being any better.” ✯

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Secret stash. This week is apt to generate confusing situations. Great events manifest Tuesday as ideas/inventions take form. After Thursday, temper force and strength with shrewd observations and common sense. Double-check directions for navigation before leaving home.

Love poetry. Tuesday brings favorable contacts and mutually-beneficial conditions. Abstract concepts, physics, or metaphysics dominate discussions. Be flexible as situations change abruptly after Thursday. Saturday brings lively conversations and bright ideas.

Superior quality. Marvelous new things are on the verge of manifesting, but the holiday interrupts progress. Since you’ll have to hurry up and wait, take time to complete personal projects or home repairs. Losses in one area are offset by gains in another – easy come, easy go.

Long, straight road. Your self-image shifts as new possibilities are considered. Cling tightly to optimism and inner truth, as promised options appear to wobble as the holiday arrives. Travel returns you to familiar settings, but individual changes may surprise you and contradict prior assumptions.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Pliable personalities. Apply organizational skills to your personal zones, shared finances, and domestic arrangements. Plans change midweek and the holiday is dotted with unusual conversations and mix-ups. Deconstruction precedes efforts to make things better than before.

Feminine mystique. Critical issues demand resolution, but the holiday diverts and divides attention. Watch for errors. Family hardships change expectations. Energy levels and moods shift quickly after Wednesday. Big and small events display similar or parallel patterns.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

High vitality. You’re in a magic zone as the week begins. Relationships lead to inner growth and accelerate your spiritual or philosophical understanding. Watch a master at work. Joining with other spectators enhances group fervors. Sports contests, exits, and entrances can be dramatic.

Synchronized movements. Great visions of the future are inspiring, but achievement requires practical foundations. New priorities make old ones obsolete, but the holiday hiatus delays implementation. Consider strategies for improvement and revision over the weekend.

Bursting with pride. Messages and ideas are effectively transferred Tuesday. Responsibilities and possessions change hands. Plans are put on hold after Wednesday. Agreed-upon improvements are subject to further considerations because of unexpected exits or endings.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Tool belt. Intense events undermine certainties. People resolve to take a new path, but intentions are swiftly unraveled. Old settings transform or fade away. Family concerns return to past issues, but new approaches lead to different results. Desires are especially strong Friday.

Endless buffet. Quantity and quality are key criteria for evaluations. Non-productive situations or dwindling interest may signal it’s time to withdraw. After Wednesday, forgotten things or missing items can cause frantic scrambling. Saturday brings pleasing connections.

Pruning shrubbery. A complicated process connected with law or finances moves toward resolution. Decisive events Tuesday or Wednesday hasten conclusions. Prepare to reorganize your lifestyle by releasing things that are obsolete. Children or young people make multiple transitions with work or study.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Elizabeth Hazel is a professional tarotist-astrologer and author. She gives readings every Wednesday at Attic on Adams above Manos Greek Restaurant. She may be contacted at ehazel@buckeye-express.com (c) 2011
