Dine for vets

he next two weeks will be a great time to eat out in Northwest Ohio. First is Dine 419, a new weeklong restaurant event Feb. 23-March 1 that will raise money for Veterans Matter, a local nonprofit working to house homeless veterans. Toledo Free Press is proud to be a media sponsor of Dine 419. Then, from March 2-8, Restaurant Week Toledo returns for the fifth year to help raise funds for Leadership Toledo’s youth programs. Since Veterans Matter was founded in Toledo in 2012, it has expanded to seven states and housed more than 500 homeless veterans, including 90 in Ohio. Founder Ken Leslie was inspired after discovering there were thousands of veterans who qualify for permanent, supported housing and services from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), but lack the initial rental deposits necessary to secure the housing and get off the streets. Veterans Matter bridges that gap by raising money to cover deposits, which are transferred directly to landlords, speeding up the Thomas F. Pounds housing process for veterans and their families to days instead of months. Restaurants participating in Dine 419 include The Beirut, The Black Pearl, The Blarney Irish Pub, Burger Bar 419, Byblos, Forrester’s on the River, Hollywood Casino Toledo (Final Cut Steak & Seafood, Scene and Take 2 Grill), Jed’s, Jim Shull’s Rib Cage, La Scola Italian Grill, McDonald’s, Poco Piatti, Table Forty4 and Ye Olde Cock n’ Bull. Supporting veterans is an especially personal cause for several of the restaurant owners. Blarney owner Ed Beczynski is a veteran. Cock n’ Bull owner Jim Mettler’s father was a veteran. I’m also the father of a service member. My son, Austin, is an Army sergeant, based in Alaska. In her column on page 4, another passionate local veterans advocate, The Arms Forces founder Pam Hays, challenges us to walk the talk in supporting veterans. “People say they love others and then continue to ignore their plight, too busy to do anything self-sacrificing for another unless it comes with some notoriety or tangible reward,” she writes. “On patriotic holidays we put flags on our porches and say we love our country, but what do we personally do to ensure those who protect our country have their needs met and know they are loved? “The VA won’t do it all. The huge organizations won’t do it all. It is what individual communities do that has the most impact on veterans and their families reintegrating back home to their new lives.” Dine 419 offers the perfect opportunity to take that first step toward meeting Hays’ challenge: In this case, you can help simply by going out to eat. Toledo Free Press is joined as a media sponsor of Dine 419 by iHeartMedia, Cumulus Toledo, WTOL-11, FOX Toledo and Hollywood Casino Toledo stepped up in a big way as presenting sponsor, with VFW Post 2898 Toledo and Bottomline Ink also offering support.

Show vets the love


gh! It’s February and I feel so pressured to write about love. But love doesn’t always conjure memories of kind words, flowers, backrubs, cute nicknames and romantic dinners. I know many, myself included, who have felt the sting of those three words: I love you. I remember someone who was quite evil to me, who caused me great physical, emotional and financial harm, saying, “But, I love you” and making me feel like every bone in my body exploded. I said to him, “How can you make the three most beautiful words in the world sound so hateful?” Love is what makes the world go ‘round and its opposite, hatred, can bring it to a halt. But something I think is even more dangerous than hatred is apathy. People say they love others and then continue to ignore their plight, too busy to do anything selfsacrificing for another unless it comes with some notoriety or tangible reward On patriotic holidays we put flags on our porches and say we love our country, Pam Hays but what do we personally do to ensure those who protect our country have their needs met and know they are loved? Most of us past the age of 30 know, or should know, that our Vietnam veterans were not treated with respect when they came home from war. Because of that, they knew they were not loved. Why? Because respect goes hand in hand with love. If we shout at someone, spit at them or call them a bad name, no one can expect to feel loved when on the receiving end of such expressions. I hear a lot of people say we can’t allow what happened to our veterans back then happen today. But, we are allowing it. Why? Because apathy is setting in. Civilians and nonmilitary families can watch the news and read the articles and become disinterested in the ongoing battles of our military, veterans and their families. We can see the evergrowing possibility of more wars as no more than a nuisance in our lives. We see war as a thing and not as the people involved in fighting them and the families who love them. We see the visible and the invisible wounds as sad stories that might make us tear up, but most don’t see the very real day-to-day sacrifices made so we can all live as free Americans in this great country. We can agree or disagree on military action, but we cannot become divided on the support of those willing to go into battle to fight for our freedoms when asked. We cannot become apathetic to their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families. We cannot say we are sorry to one generation of veterans and repeat the lack of respect, the lack of love, with another generation. We must become more aware of what is being done to help veterans in our own area. We can’t assume it is someone else’s responsibility to do the work and not involve ourselves. Please don’t say you love our military, veterans and our country and then never get involved. A sacrifice from you can make a difference in their lives. You can become part of creating a new generation of veterans that will sit around years from now and tell stories about how their community stepped up and made sure they felt loved and respected for their military service. You can be a part of righting the wrongs from the past by ensuring the military’s younger generations never feel the pain of the words “We love you. We support you” being made empty through lack of action. You can make sure that your words match your actions. The VA won’t do it all. The huge organizations won’t do it all. It is what individual communities do that has the most impact on veterans and their families reintegrating back home to their new lives. Love doesn’t mean never saying you’re sorry, to paraphrase a line from one of my favorite movies, “Love Story.” But love does include being sorry for hurting another and meaning those words. It also means changing yourself or the circumstances so you won’t hurt them again. It means we learn from our mistakes and never again want to feel the shame and pain we felt when we hurt someone we loved. I know most of you feel like I do. I love my country, my military, my veterans and their families from the deepest part of my heart. That’s not just during this month of love, but every day, every month, every year, forever. Let’s make sure we mean it when we say, “I love our military and veterans!” O

A Toledo tradition since 2005 n OTTNEY CONTINUED FROM 3 Which is why a Feb. 15 Blade column about Woodville caught me by such surprise. The worst little town in Ohio? Had I really been away so long? A recent visit showed me nothing much has changed. That’s the charm and frustration of quiet small towns. It’s what makes teens declare they’ll leave for good at the first opportunity, only to move back years later to raise their own kids. But “worst” is quite the heavyhanded qualifier. Worst because it’s a “speed trap”? Hey, we all speed. Me especially. We all hate to get tickets. But speed limits are set by the Ohio Department of Transportation; they are clearly posted and local law enforcement simply enforces them. According to a recent Blade investigation, 14 percent of the village’s general revenue came from traffic violations last year. That’s much higher than other local municipalities. But simply respect the laws and you won’t have to worry about contributing. Woodville police issued 2,735 speeding tickets from 2012 through 2014: 598 in 2012, 964 in 2013 and 1,173 in 2014. That’s 3.2 tickets per day in 2014, or 2.5 per day on average over the past two years. For a “speed trap,” that doesn’t seem that excessive. The Blade also found the average speed for a ticket is 15.76 mph over the limit. That doesn’t seem unreasonable. Woodville Police Chief Roy Whitehead said he stands behind his department. Tickets aren’t written out of malice or to artificially enhance village revenue, and each will show a “clear and just violation,” he told me. Whitehead told me skepticism about Woodville’s reasoning for such strict enforcement — protecting kids crossing four-lane Route 20 — doesn’t bother him. He sleeps well at night knowing Woodville’s citizens are as safe as he can make them. “I’ve had to knock on a few doors over the years to tell a family their loved one isn’t coming home,” Whitehead told me. “If enforcing traffic laws saves just one child’s life or person’s life then we’ve done our job.” Worst because an officer shot a dog? A chocolate lab named Moses was shot Nov. 3 just outside Woodville after approaching a traffic stop from his owner’s business on Route 20. Officer Steve Gilkerson, 29, a K-9 officer and nine-year Woodville Police veteran, said the dog had a “look in its eyes” and seemed to be intent on a target, not veering from his path even when yelled at. Moses has been in and out of hospitals since being shot and ended up losing a leg. The incident was unfortunate, there’s no doubt about it. No one with a heart could feel otherwise. It’s one of those he said-she said situations that’s nearly impossible to resolve to the satisfaction of all parties.

February 22, 2015




n A Feb. 15 Blade Column naming WoodvilLE the “Worst Little Town in Ohio” has upset many residents of the northwest ohio village.

But is Woodville really home to a “trigger-happy cop run amok”? An officer who shoots dogs because he thinks “that’s what cops get to do — shoot if and when they please, at anything or anyone they please,” as columnist Keith Burris wrote. As much as I’m fond of it, Woodville is, well, boring. But that’s the way its residents like it: quiet and peaceful. That bullet that hit Moses came from the only line-of-duty discharge of a firearm by a Woodville Police officer in recent memory, at least as far as Whitehead can remember over his 21 years on the force and Mayor Richard Harman can remember in his more than 50 years in the village. Worst because the officer was not punished? Four police chiefs, a firearms instructor and the Sandusky County prosecutor weighed the facts, including witness statements, and cleared Gilkerson of wrongdoing. Whitehead assured me if Gilkerson had shot in malice he would no longer be employed. I believe him. In the wake of the incident, vest cameras were added in December and dashboard cameras in January. Officers attended a seminar on dog behavior in February. The dog’s owners, Thomas Bischoff and Lauren Meyer, are upset, of course. Meyer, a Woodville native, said she thinks the officer made a “bad judgment call” and should have been disciplined. But she told me she still supports her hometown and its police department. She isn’t happy about the “worst small town” moniker. “I’m upset with the way things were handled. But I’m not upset with the town or the police department. This town has always been safe,” Meyer told me. “When you slam the town like that, it just makes us look bad. Forgive and forget. We can’t forget. But we’re not out for blood.” A few years ago, Burris moved back to his native Ohio after 25 years in Connecticut, and wrote a column (“Just a guy from Ohio — and glad of it,” April 28, 2013) in which he marveled anew at how nice Ohioans are. He was happy to be in a place where being kind and neighborly is valued. Hey, that sounds a lot like Woodville. Where there’s a lack of pretension and people don’t take themselves too seri-

ously. That’s Woodville, too. Where neighbors say “Hi” and invite you over. Check. Kindness and community? Yep, Woodville again. I sat near Burris at Scott High School several months ago. We were there to hear a panel discussion about policecommunity relations, but toward the end the topic veered to media and how it covers only the bad stories and only superficially. Media was offered the opportunity to respond, and Burris spoke. “I think the ‘side’ thing is what kills the conversation,” he said. “This idea that you pick a side ahead of time and you know the cop was bad before you even heard the story or you know Michael Brown was the bad guy before you have any evidence or any facts. So I think this whole idea that you join a team and you’re predisposed toward one set of answers before you even have any data, that’s what kills the conversation and what makes the division you were talking about even deeper. We’re never going to have that conversation because we already know.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. The Blade decries Woodville as an “authority structure built on the culture of bullying.” All I see is a columnist calling for the resignation of two people he’s never sat down and talked with. A newspaper hypocritically outraged by bullying. And a town being vilified over one isolated incident. Like most people and places, Woodville is neither perfect nor fatally flawed. I see a town that took the initiative to install cameras. I see a town that arranged and continues to arrange training opportunities for its officers on interacting with dogs. I see a police chief who years ago ended the petty practice of issuing tickets for 2-6 mph over the limit to where it sits today at 12-18 mph over. I see a mayor who took the time to answer each concerned email and phone call from citizens and dog advocates in the weeks following the incident and who is truly pained by the continuing negative press. That doesn’t sound like the worst little town in Ohio to me. It sounds like a place where I’m glad to say I have roots. O Sarah Ottney is editor in chief of Toledo Free Press.

NAACP celebrates 100 years in Toledo of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. But that’s not the NAACP style, he said. Instead, the NAACP goes to court and enforces voting rights and fair procedures.

Toledo Free Press News Editor

Ohio State University professor Kenneth Goings can trace back to the origins of Toledo’s NAACP branch to explain how it has lasted here for 100 years. February marks the 100th anniversary of the NAACP in Toledo and Dr. Goings will speak Feb. 21 Downtown at the Toledo-Lucas County Main Library to mark the occasion. Most people thought the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People would fail, Goings said during a telephone interview Feb. 17. The national organization was founded in 1909 and the Toledo branch in 1915. In the beginning, the organization had few successes and many critics, said Goings, an expert on NAACP history in Ohio. “[Black nationalist] Marcus Garvey heavily criticized the NAACP for working with white people,” Goings said. “Other African-Americans also criticized the NAACP. The labor organizers felt that the NAACP was focused more on race and not on class.” Even the prominent African-American leader Booker T. Washington felt the NAACP was a group of radical “rabble-rousers” that would cause more harm than good in race relations. The criticisms and lack of any real success continued until 1930, when Judge John J. Parker was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court. “Judge Parker had made some racist statements and the NAACP couldn’t tolerate someone like that on the Supreme Court,” Goings said. “They started a campaign to ensure Parker was not confirmed. They were ultimately successful. They reorganized their branches. The Toledo branch took on this campaign. When Parker was defeated, it was one of the greatest achievements for African-Americans because they had been disenfranchised, Jim-Crowed, and here they were able to pull themselves together and defeat Parker.” Defeating Parker brought prestige and honor to the African-American community and people started joining the NAACP. Their membership dues provided a financial infusion that ensured the Toledo branch of the NAACP would continue, Goings said. Goings wrote a book, published in 1990, called “The NAACP Comes of Age’: The Defeat of Judge John J. Parker,” that details the beginnings of how the NAACP was born and became the powerful organization that it is today.

KENNETH GOINGS Blocking Parker’s nomination was not the end of the fight. The NAACP went on to target and block the election of Ohio senators who supported Parker. They were able to flip Toledo, Akron, Canton and Columbus from Republican-held cities to Democratic, Goings said. “It gave [African-Americans] a real sense of accomplishment and motivation, and after 1930 the national and Toledo branch became much more active and started working on improving their lot,” he said. The NAACP was founded to enforce the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution. The 14th Amendment “granted equal protection of the laws” and deals with citizenship; the 15th Amendment prohibits the government from denying a citizen the right to vote based on the citizen’s “race, color or previous condition of servitude.” The NAACP takes a legal approach to civil rights, Goings said, with the goal of influencing legislature. During the civil rights movement in the 1960s, the organization did not participate in sit-ins, marches or bus boycotts, and many African-Americans considered them “Uncle Toms.” “Their whole approach is to do things through the courts, to change the laws,” Goings said. Other black groups that were active during the civil rights movement are not active today, he said, such as Congress of Racial Equality, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Black Panther Party. “Where are they now?” Goings asked. “But the NAACP remains strong and it’s celebrating its 100th birthday.” Goings believes today’s NAACP is not attracting enough young people, because they want action, like demonstrations and marches, such as those spawned from the shooting death

Goings will speak 2-3:30 p.m. Feb. 21 on the accomplishments and leadership of the Toledo NAACP chapter over the past 100 years at the Main Library’s McMaster Center,

325 N. Michigan St. A Q-and-A session will follow. Light refreshments will be served. The event is sponsored by the Library Legacy Foundation. O

A Toledo tradition since 2005


By Sarah Ottney

Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief

Before a standing-room only crowd at Toledo City Council chambers on Feb. 17, Paula Hicks-Hudson was sworn in as Toledo’s first female African-American mayor. The ceremony was a formality as Hicks-Hudson, as City Council president, was sworn in as acting mayor Feb. 1 at University of Toledo Medical Center after Mayor D. Michael Collins was hospitalized in critical condition. She became mayor when he died Feb. 6, five days after his cardiac arrest and car accident. Hicks-Hudson’s remarks were laced with biblical references and drew laughs at times. After thanking her husband, family members and

friends, she addressed her former City Council colleagues. “To my Council colleagues: I have unfortunately crossed the Rubicon to the 22nd floor,” she said wryly, to laughter. “But I have not crossed off the issues that we’ve long cared about. It is my pledge to work with you for the betterment of the citizens. We may not always agree on the methods, but I’m sure we always will agree on the fundamental purpose of making this great city a great place to live and to work.” She also drew laughs when thanking Judge Arlene Singer of Ohio’s 6th District Court of Appeals, whom she called her longtime friend and colleague. “Thank you for swearing me in rather than swearing at me, which she has sometimes done,” Hicks-Hudson said, referring to her career as a lawyer. Hicks-Hudson thanked all City of

Hicks-Hudson formally sworn in as Toledo mayor

n Former Toledo mayors, from lefT, mike bell, donna owens, jack ford and carty finkbeiner with toledo mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson, center, after her formal swearing-in ceremony Feb. 17 at Toledo City Council Chambers.

Toledo employees for continuing to do their jobs despite their shock and grief. Hicks-Hudson made it clear the city would not falter in implementing plans set in place by Collins. “Please rest assured that the city is not in turmoil. Rest assured that we are going to go forward with those plans and projects that were in the pipeline,” HicksHudson said. “It is my intention and my

plan to continue those initiatives … because those plans are for the betterment of this city and are what we need to do moving forward as a community. “We must actively and intelligently attract living wage jobs for our area. We must actively and intelligently create liveable spaces for families to make their homes. We must develop partnerships that can expand the width

and depth of our region so our city can continue on this path of ascent.” The role of mayor was not one she sought, but one that her professional career has prepared her for, HicksHudson said. “I stand before you with the determination and with the dedicated men and women of city government ready to assume this role,” she said. “Please know that I have accepted this challenge just as I have accepted other challenges in my life. But I accept this challenge with the understanding that you must be a part of it with me.” With echoes of Collins’ favorite slogan “You Will Do Better in Toledo,” Hicks-Hudson asked for a positive mindset. “It is my plan and my intention to look at ways to show our young people that you can make a home here in Toledo,” she said. “The first act I ask you to do is speak with pride about this great city. Talk about the resilience about our community and the life we can provide for ourselves and our children. It is not an I versus you. It is an us, it is a we. It is we that can move this place forward. It is we who can make Toledo the city on the hill you can hear about so often.” Also in attendance were former Toledo mayors Donna Owens, Carty Finkbeiner, Mike Bell and Jack Ford, who is serving as Council president pro tempore. Hicks-Hudson said, “Each has been kind enough to offer words of encouragement and willingness to continue to help our great city.” After the ceremony, Bell said HicksHudson’s speech was “excellent.” “I give her an A+,” Bell said. “I thought her speech was extremely inclusive of a lot of related issues to our city. If she stays on that track, she will be an excellent mayor.” O

VOLUNTEER Jacob merkle, right, helps pamela redd prepare her taxes at the United Way of Greater Toledo.

Local agencies offer free tax preparation services By Danielle Stanton Toledo Free Press News Editor

United Way of Greater Toledo is bringing free tax preparation to lowand moderate-income residents in Lucas, Wood and Ottawa counties. At 15 sites throughout the counties, tax preparers help individuals and families prepare their state and federal returns for free through the Free Tax Preparation Program. The average taxpayer spends $200 on tax preparation services each year, according to IRS estimates. In 2014, 84 volunteers assisted 3,487 residents, saving an estimated $670,000 in tax preparation fees. The program brought back more than $4.5 million in tax returns to Lucas, Wood and Ottawa county residents between January and April 2014, according to the United Way. The United Way has been involved in the program for the past nine years, said program director Toni Shoola. If you make less than $53,000 annually, you may qualify for the program. Tax preparers use what’s called a “scope guide,” which is provided by the IRS and sets eligibility requirements and limitations. A tax preparer will be able to determine your eligibility.

Jacob Merkle, a volunteer intern, said he and his fellow volunteers have been busy, even referring people who couldn’t get an appointment to a free website, “I really like helping people,” Merkle said at the Downtown United Way offices on Jackson Street. So far, tax preparers have handled more than 1,700 applications and more people are calling every day. “We’re opening up appointments as soon as we can assist people,” Shoola said. “We have a huge demand. Every volunteer we get serves 40 more people. We’re always looking for more.” The program has enlisted 70 volunteers for this year’s tax season and had 84 last year.

Toledoans have been ordering Pat Giammarco’s food into their own homes for more than 30 years. Starting Feb. 23, they’ll be able to eat his food in his Downtown establishment, as M Osteria & Bar opens its doors at 611 Monroe St. Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, who founded Marco’s Pizza in Toledo in 1978, bought the 135-year-old building about three years ago and has slowly been renovating it since. Last year, he started talking with Robert Croak — a staple in the Toledo bar and restaurant scene for 25 years — and hired him as M Osteria’s director of operations, in charge of branding, entertainment and overall concept. “Osteria” is an Italian term that is loosely defined as a smaller restaurant with an emphasis on its short menu and fine wines. “To us, it means a hangout,” Croak said. “A cool, smaller place where friends and family can hang out and eat. That’s really it.” M Osteria will be an Italian bistro on the first floor, with a lounge space upstairs often featuring a DJ. “It will be for the little more high-end crowd where they can bring their date and have a nice night,” Croak said of the lounge. “A place you can get a table and enjoy some really nice wines and craft beers, and just really have a great experience and night out. “Toledo is primarily sports bars right now and the lounge atmosphere has gone away for quite some time, so we’re just trying to bring something back to give people who want to dress up a place to go on a weekend night where they can just feel good about themselves and really go out and have a good time.” Downstairs, the main emphasis will be on the kitchen. Toledoan Justin Thomas will be the head chef, with a culinary team that will include its own baker and pasta maker. “The food is the most important part,” Croak said. “A lot of people build nice places but they don’t focus on really high-quality food. For us, it’s about high-quality ingredients and just doing really great stuff. “Obviously with Pat’s history in pizza in the city of Toledo, we have someone with 30 years of experience making great pizza. We’re focusing on pizza but also a lot of great

Italian items. People should plan to see homemade breads, homemade pastas, homemade arancini and just a lot of really great items that there will be a lot of care put into.” M Osteria & Bar’s menu includes soups and salads, antipasti, paninis, burgers, artisan pizzas, entrees, pastas and sides. Appetizers range in price from $5 to $16, sandwiches in the $9-$12 range, pizzas (available hand-tossed or thin) $12-$16 and entrees $15-$25. Sides are all $6. Pizza toppings include: Old World pepperoni, chicken, arugula, prosciutto, garlic spinach, roasted peppers, baby artichokes, roasted garlic, Italian sausage, roasted wild mushrooms, roasted tomatoes and lamb meatballs. The business is located on the northern edge of Downtown’s Warehouse District, on Monroe Street between Erie and Huron streets. Across the street from Table Forty4, it sits in the middle of the block bookended by The Blarney

A Toledo tradition since 2005


In the years following his discharge from the U.S. Army, Gregory Johnson’s life turned into a war zone of its own. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Johnson, 27, did his best to integrate back into his life in Toledo after serving 2006-09. However, he encountered one devastating setback after another: He lost his job, his marriage crumbled, his three children were placed into foster care, he was shot and robbed, he was in an accident, his house was condemned and he was suddenly homeless. Johnson’s days were filled with tears and extreme apathy, not wanting to work, and not really able to due to his mental state. “At one point, I was so depressed I tried to commit suicide, because I couldn’t be around my kids,” Johnson said. “I wanted to do it, but I didn’t. Instead, I reached out to the veterans suicide line.” Desperately needing a place to stay, Johnson had no money and depended on food stamps to live. It was then that he turned to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), where he was connected with Veterans Matter, a national charity founded and still based in the Glass City. Ken Leslie, of Toledo, started the group in 2012 with a simple mission: Help house homeless veterans. “I really didn’t want anyone knowing I was homeless,” Johnson said. “If it wasn’t for Ken and Veterans Matter reaching out to me, I don’t know what I’d do.” Dine 419, a new weeklong restaurant fundraising event taking place Feb. 23-March 1, will provide assistance to Veterans Matter. Several area restaurants are participating in the event, with a portion of their proceeds going to help veterans like Johnson.

Veterans Matter

Today there are nearly 50,000 homeless veterans nationwide, many of whom qualify for voucher-assisted living provided by the U.S. government. However, they often lack the initial rental deposits necessary to secure their housing. Veterans Matters steps in to raise money and work directly with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the VA to ensure funds go straight to landlords for the vets in need. Veterans Matter has dramatically accelerated the time it takes to help homeless veterans.


Local effort helping homeless veterans know they matter Dine 419 is a perfect example of this, because everybody knows exactly what the money does.”

More than a home

While Johnson is only permitted to see his three children for one hour per week, he believes that having his own home improves the odds of those visitation hours increasing. His children’s two mothers are not as fortunate. “I am the only one out of the three parents who has a place of my own,” Johnson said. “The others are staying either with family members or friends. Since I have my own place, that helps me out.” Veterans Matter made Johnson’s dream come true when he moved into his home near the Old West End along Bancroft Street in August 2014. “When I met Ken, I told him, ‘I wanted to thank you face to face, because I didn’t have the money,’” Johnson said. “Now I can do whatever I want because it’s my house. [Leslie’s] been there as a mentor and a friend. The only thing he asks is that I pay it forward.” n

Veterans Matter Founder Ken Leslie, left, with Veteran Gregory Johnson at Johnson’s home in Toledo.

“Prior to Veterans Matter, in Lucas County, it took us 137 days from the time that we admitted a veteran into VA-supported housing to the time that we were able to lease the veteran up in his/her apartment/house,” said Shawn Dowling, a coordinator for VA Healthcare for Homeless Veterans. “Today it takes us an average of 34 days. Having quick and easy access to deposits allows us to secure these funds in approximately 10 minutes. If we did not have Veterans Matter, we would need to take veterans around to different organizations where they would fill out applications for review, which can take up to 14 business days.” Veterans Matter connects local communities, foundations, corporations and veterans groups with HUD and VA to move homeless vets off the streets and into permanent, supported housing. Once housed, services are lined up to help veterans and their families recapture their lives and return to domestic autonomy. “I do street level outreach with a group of homeless advocates in Toledo — this is how I met Ken,” Dowling said. “Ken created Veterans Matter after a conversation that we had in respect to the needs of homeless veterans in Northwest Ohio.”

ProMedica, celebrity help

Leslie obtained initial support from musician John Mellencamp

during a 2007 concert stop in Toledo. Mellencamp visited Leslie’s Tent City, which raises awareness of homelessness and helps connect those in need with services. The event first took place in 1990 in Downtown Toledo. Word of mouth spread to others in the music and entertainment industry. By the time he founded Veterans Matter, Leslie had connections with PETEE celebrities and their financial support, including Susan Sarandon, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Ice-T, Stevie Nicks and Willie Nelson, among others. “John [Mellencamp] talked about us on the stage, and said that [homelessness] really does matter,” Leslie said. “As far as the other celebrities, they keep hearing about it. People all over the country are supporting it because we do it well, and we do it fast.” Locally, ProMedica helped kickstart Veterans Matter by donating $26,000 to Leslie’s group in 2012, and giving 35 local landlords $750 each to house local veterans. Since then, ProMedica has given further funding totaling near $50,000, all for the Toledo Community Foundation’s ProMedica Advocacy Fund.

“Part of what we believe we’re called to do is to ensure we’re meeting the social needs of our community,” said Barb Petee, ProMedica chief advocacy and government relations officer. “When Ken Leslie approached me about the difficulties that veterans are facing, it goes hand-inhand with those food, clothing and shelter needs. It really was a community collaboration. It has grown far beyond Toledo, and has given awareness to the issue.” Leslie originally started Veterans Matter because he saw a small local problem that left veterans with nowhere to live. He quickly discovered that the small problem in Toledo was truly a national problem, and chapters have since started all over America. ProMedica considers Veterans Matter to be a perfect fit with the community and moral issues it supports. “We really want to be supportive, so they can be productive citizens in our community, and focus on wellness issues,” Petee said. “It makes sense from a moral standpoint, and from a community standpoint, and from a health industry standpoint, to help individuals address their needs.” Leslie believes the concept works because it’s straightforward. “It’s so simple,” Leslie said. “It’s like everything else in life: If you’re doing something good, people want to help.

Paying it forward

Johnson is hoping to pay it through education and music. He has already started some course work at University of Toledo, but plans to transfer to Florida A&M later this year, into the same program that once educated former Scott High School band director Gus Walker. “I want to bring the history and tradition and style back to Scott, the way it used to be,” Johnson said. “I want to come back to Toledo and be the band director, because it gave me an outlet when I was younger. It gave me a sense of pride and direction. I want to stop [the kids] before they get to the street gangs, and give back to the kids. And I want to incorporate that discipline from when I was in the military.” Johnson loved serving in the military, and was stationed in Germany and Iraq, but also visited places about which most only dream: Czech Republic, Italy, France and even sister city Toledo, Spain. Although Johnson believes he’s headed in the right direction, he still has his struggles, such as needing a reliable car for his on-again, offagain factory job in Bowling Green. Yet, despite his trials, he’s thankful for everything. “I want to help as much as I can,” Johnson said. “I want to break that generational curse for my kids and create something positive. I give God the glory, the honor and the praise. And, I don’t complain.” O

Master of suspense Dirk Manning brings new volume of ‘Mr. Rhee’ to Kickstarter. By Jeff McGinnis Toledo Free Press Pop Culture Editor

It’s a good thing that horror/comic book writer Dirk Manning is a master of the unexpected. He’s faced a good deal of it in the past few weeks — but all of it has been of the decidedly joyful variety. It was just two weeks ago when Manning launched his latest effort on Kickstarter, a fundraiser to create a second graphic novel of his popular comic series “The Tales of Mr. Rhee,” published through Devil’s Due Entertainment. “‘Tales of Mr. Rhee’ is a series about a paranormal troubleshooter,” Manning said in an interview with Toledo Free Press. “He lives in a world after the armageddon/rapture has happened, and society has rebuilt. Everything is seemingly back to normal. But Mr. Rhee is a character who knows there are still monsters left. Society chooses to kind of ignore that fact ... or chooses not to believe that. Until something comes up, and then you need a guy like Mr. Rhee to come in and kind of clean up the mess.” Manning has made a name for himself with these kinds of macabre tales for years now, whether it be his wildly pop-

ular anthology horror series “Nightmare World,” his stint writing the origin of the flying monkeys in the comic series “Legends of Oz: Wicked West,” his horror/romance compilation “Love Stories to Die For” and much more. He sees Rhee’s adventures, especially this second volume, subtitled “Karmageddon,” as something that draws from his experiences with all his work. “With ‘Tales of Mr. Rhee,’ I guess we have a combination of everything I’ve done so far. We have the very strong world-building of ‘Nightmare World,’ combined with long-form character development, as it relates to Mr. Rhee. “‘Karmageddon’ is actually a sequel and a prequel to the first volume. ‘Karmageddon’ does start with a look at where Mr. Rhee is now, after the cliffhanger ending of Vol. 1. We do touch on, OK, how do we get out of that mess? But then the rest of the story is largely about what Mr. Rhee did during the three days of the armageddon. So the main story is actually a prequel story.” But creating a deluxe, special edition of a work can be expensive, even for an author with a loyal fan base. So about a year ago, Manning turned to Kickstarter in an effort to produce a hardcover collection of the first

volume of “Rhee,” a campaign that succeeded with room to spare. “One of the things I wanted to do is offer readers ... a chance to have a deluxe edition of the book, and get some really cool extras on the side. And Kickstarter allows you to do that,” Manning said. That philosophy has carried over into this most recent fundraiser, as Manning aimed to bring readers a special hardcover edition of “Karmageddon,” while still producing a paperback edition to be sold in comic shops. In addition, though, fans who invested a little more could get some unusual gifts. “And that’s the thing that’s really cool to be able to do for people who are really into the series, to get this cool, exclusive edition of the book, with all these exclusive extras. “We also did something with this edition of the campaign we didn’t do last time. People can actually buy their way into Vol. 3 as a main character for a full issue, they can be killed in one of the issues or have a cameo role. And that’s the highest honor, for a horror fan that’s the highest honor, to be killed in a book.” The end result has been more successful than Manning could have ever

dreamed, thanks to fans who have congregated on a Facebook group called “The F(r)iends of Dirk Manning Support Group” and elsewhere. “Between that and then just assembling a good, old-fashioned mailing list ­— I go to all these shows, I get myself a binder, a tablet or whatever, they can just write in their email — and I started my mailing list right before the campaign started, a couple thousand people, and this very dedicated group on Facebook. “And what happened is, when we launched the campaign, it’s just nuts, man,” he said. “We had a goal of $6,666. We surpassed that goal in under eight hours, which is wild, man. I’m just blown away.” Manning’s F(r)iends were not done, either. After another push to garner donations before Feb. 13 — Friday the 13th, naturally — the total donated stands at well over $13,000, with two weeks left.

Manning is not slowing down in the weeks to come, either. He has tons of appearances at conventions booked in the coming days, from Great Lakes ComicCon in Warren, Michigan, on Feb. 28 to Animarathon XIII at Bowling Green State University on March 21. He also has signed a deal for a second volume of his guide to writers, “Write or Wrong.” But for longtime fans of Manning’s work, the most exciting news may be the culmination and climax of one of his most popular works — one which he teases as only a master of suspense can. “There’s this other franchise book I have, that has three volumes out there, and people have been begging for a fourth and final volume for a while,” Manning said. “And if this Kickstarter continues to do as well as it is, I see no reason why we can’t, at long last, bring it home.” For more information on the “Tales of Mr. Rhee” fundraiser, visit the Kickstarter page at: O
