DON LEE Publisher’s statement

A Clarion call

M

ayor D. Michael Collins promised his administration would strengthen the city’s focus on local development and investment and, in a very short time, he has made that a clear priority. In addition to the major announcement that ProMedica will move its administrative offices Downtown and make a historic investment in the heart of Toledo, as well as the administrative cooperation that led to furniture producer Allermuir USA purchasing a 37-acre site in Monclova Township, there was another quick and collaborative effort with Toledo City Council this week. Toledo City Council voted unanimously to purchase the 11-story former Clarion Hotel on Reynolds Road in the hopes of attracting new businesses to Thomas F. Pounds the former Southwyck Mall area. Collins officials told 1370 WSPD that there is interest in a nearby former Kmart but the business in question would only move into the area if the hotel were demolished. That demolition is expected to cost the city around $800,000; that is an investment in growth. There is no deal made yet but the fast movement and all-in vote by Council demonstrates a so-far smooth and efficient development engine. There is no question the presence of Matt Sapara as director of business and economic development is already paying off and it is exciting to see such a firecracker string of successes. The message to the business community is clear: Toledo is seeking fast growth with as smooth a development process as possible. That does not mean every deal is going through on the backs of unicorns jumping over rainbows, but it is extremely encouraging to see the initial successes Collins’ administration is facilitating. If some of that effort and success can be shared with the city’s established development on the international stage, Collins will be on the way to silencing doubters and bringing a fresh and vital attitude to Toledo — just as he promised on the campaign trail.

GUEST COLUMN

Standing up for the rights of the adopted By Kate Oatis

A

from finding them. Indeed, the papers that my daughter’s father and I signed included the promise that we would not interfere with her or try to find her. The papers that we signed included no language about preventing our child from finding us. What reasonable person would disagree that adopted people deserve access to their birth certificates and to the people who brought them into the world? As birthparents’ lives unfolded and our understanding of the nature of things evolved, many of us realized, at the very least, how naïve we’d been to send our children to people we did not know. Our babies were not property. They weren’t gifts to people who couldn’t have children. They were — and are — human beings with rights and needs. And, they grew up; they’re no longer adopted children. We can’t go back to change the decisions we made. We can, however, stand up for our adult children to ensure they have access to information and to us. The decision to request an original birth certificate or to search for a birth/first family is a personal one. Having said that, those of us whose lives are forever touched by adoption are grateful to Gov. Kasich for his support in changing a law that should never have been passed. A twist some might find interesting: Norris’ late adoptive father was an attorney and was instrumental in having the records closed in the State of Ohio back in 1964. Years later, having experienced an evolution in understanding of the nature of things, he supported Norris in her work to unmake the law he’d helped create. For more information on the Ohio bill and other news on adoption, please visit adoptionnetwork.org or find Adoption Network Cleveland on Facebook. O Kate Oatis lives in Maumee and is willing to speak with adoptees, birth/ first parents and prospective adoptive parents from her perspective as a birth/first mother. She can be reached at kaoatis@yahoo.com.

Other calls are more serious; domestic violence calls are common. “It’s unbelievable the reasons people will kill each other out here,” he said. I had signed a waiver stating I wouldn’t take photos or get in the way of police business by interacting with anyone on a scene unless given permission. Officers use their judgment on whether a location is safe before allowing ride-along passengers out of the vehicle. I was able to follow along on each call. One involved a dispute between neighbors over a parked car. Another call came from a mom whose son had knocked over a lamp and yelled at her before leaving the house. They told her to call back if he returned. Another stop concerned a car parked in the middle of the street. Its hazard lights were flashing but no one was around. The officers were about to call for a tow when the owner came back with a gas can. Later, we responded to the Cherry Street Mission, where the officers asked a man to leave for being disorderly. Another call was from TARTA. A passenger had missed his stop and ended up at the bus garage. The officers gave him a ride home. One interesting stop was Erie Street Market, where an officer with the K-9 unit was running Damon, a bombsniffing dog, through his paces. The officer had hidden a package that smelled like explosive material and it was Damon’s job to find it. The true test came after the dog located the spot. The officer instructed him to check elsewhere, but Damon ignored him, staying with the “bomb” and earning a tennis ball reward. The officers I rode with kept apologizing for what an unusually slow Saturday night it was. Although to them it was probably routine, I thought the most interesting part of the night was a traffic stop where heroin and needles were found in the car. One person was arrested. Because he was put in the back seat where I had been riding, I caught a lift back to the station in another police vehicle. The sergeant I rode with said he loved the job because of the variety. That’s the same thing I love about journalism. After reconnecting with my two officers back at the station and then the jail, I was able to follow the suspect through the rest of his journey — into a holding cell while a report was written and then on to the jail where he was booked. TPD (@Toledo_Police) recently livetweeted its first ride-along (#TPDLive) and said they plan to do more. I thought about doing that, but signing that waiver made me second-guess what I was allowed to say. And, honestly, I just got busy talking. It was fun, as a journalist, to have two officers at your side for eight straight hours. Anything that came to mind, I asked. One of them was at the scene of the Jan. 26 fire in North Toledo that killed two firefighters. Neither patrolman

knew James Dickman or Stephen Machcinski, but said their deaths were a reminder that tragedy can strike on even the most routine of calls. As a member of this year’s Leadership Toledo class, I’ve been interacting with and learning from 40 of the brightest and most positive people around. The slogan “You Will Do Better In Toledo” falls regularly and unsarcastically from the lips of many of us. Part of the experience is being exposed to new viewpoints that challenge your way of thinking. Sometimes a dose of another reality is eye-opening. Through the eyes of two TPD patrolmen who encounter the underbelly of the city on a daily basis, I saw how negativity and cynicism can creep in. Although they interacted professionally with everyone we encountered, they both admitted it’s easy to get down on the city as they visit the same addresses and see the same names. They are most disillusioned by the kids. The younger ones are undisciplined, the older ones “loose cannons.” “The biggest problem in Toledo is the lack of parenting,” one said. “Kids today

are out of control. They don’t listen to their parents and they don’t listen to us.” They regularly see 5- to 10-year-olds running around outside long after dark. “We tell them to go home, but they just come back. And we can’t tell their parents because their parents are nowhere to be found. That’s just what happens. It’s not unusual.” They aren’t sure what the answer is. But they are frustrated by it. And they are worried for the future. I wished they could spend a day with the teens of Youth Leadership Toledo. That program as well as its adult counterpart aims to play a role in changing the future. The goal, as associate executive director Cory Dippold puts it, is to inspire people to stop waiting for someone else to fix what’s broken. The adult program, which you can read more about in this issue, is currently accepting applications for next year’s classes. To our police and firefighters: Thank you for your service.

OH REG #99-10-1523T

s the birth/first mother of an adult daughter adopted in Ohio after Jan. 1, 1964, I am grateful for the people who’ve worked hard to restore the right of adopted people to their original birth certificates. That right was restored Dec. 19, when Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed the Adoptee Access to Records Bill. The State of Ohio sealed — or closed — adoption records in 1964, which meant that anyone adopted after Jan. 1, 1964, had no legal access to his or her original birth certificate while all those adopted before that date simply had to request their birth certificates to receive them. The picture for those with no access started to change about 25 years ago when adoptee Betsie Norris, executive director of Adoption Network Cleveland, began to advocate for adoption reform. The bill affects people whose adoptions were finalized from Jan. 1, 1964, through Sept. 18, 1996 — at least 400,000 people in Ohio, Norris said, “the most in any state.” These individuals may begin to receive their records March 20, 2015. There had already been a law in place saying that people adopted after that date had access to their records, unless their birth/first parents stipulated otherwise. Fortunately, according to Norris, “the Ohio Department of Health says very few birthparents have said no.” The Adoptee Access to Records Bill seems to have given adopted people the inner freedom to search for their birth/first families. Just as birth/first parents often feel searching for their surrendered children is wrong or selfish, it is usual for adopted people to consider it selfish to search for their birth/first parents. According to Norris, since the bill was signed in December, there’s been an increase in the number of people doing searches. The State of Ohio’s Adoptee Access to Records Bill is good news for birth/first parents who, at the time they signed the papers, likely had no idea the state would, years later, prevent their children

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

A local jazz enthusiast and radio DJ is hoping to help revitalize Toledo’s oncethriving jazz community. Hugh Ross hosts the jazz radio show “The H-Factor” on the University of Toledo’s student station, WXUT. The show airs 2-6 p.m. Saturdays and 4-6 p.m. Sundays. “The H-Factor” offers an eclectic mix of jazz and according to Ross, all subgenres are represented in one way or another. “Jazz has too many genres to limit it. There are 27 types of jazz, and I try to play every last one of them. I like to introduce people to different types, so I try to weave it all together,” he said. “A lot of people think jazz is for old folks, like myself, but I want to introduce young people of all diversities to all types of jazz, and let them make the decision whether they like it or not.” In addition to his radio show, Ross is working to line up more public appearances to expose jazz to people of all ages, and will begin a weekly DJ session at Forrester’s on the River on Wednesdays in March. n JAZZ CONTINUES ON 7

n JAZZ CONTINUED FROM 6 Ross has loved music all his life. He made the varsity marching band as a freshman at Central Catholic High School, but he was also a talented football player, which forced him to make a difficult choice. “I remember going to the varsity band leader and asking him ROSS if I could be in the band and still play football, and he said no. I had to make a decision. Music was always in my heart, but I decided to go with football.� At the time, Ross had been listening to a lot of rock ’n’ roll, but when he was 16 years old, his sister turned him on to “California Dreaming,� an album by jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. “From that point on, I liked jazz, and I’ve been liking it ever since.�

Back to school

Ross enrolled at UT in the 1970s on a full scholarship, but left school to attend to family matters. It was a decision that would stay with him for years. “Every time I passed by the univer-

sity, I’d get this feeling in my gut, like I didn’t finish something,� he said. He made a promise to his ailing father that he would return to complete the college education he started. In 2012, Ross made good on that promise, and headed back to UT to work toward a bachelor’s degree in human resource management. While enrolled in a radio production class, a professor took note. “He said he liked my voice, and [said] I ought to go over to WXUT,� Ross said. Ross recalled how, in the 1970s at UT, he would bring his record player to the student union and play music for people. “That became my passion.� His passion has now attracted a dedicated following of Toledo jazz enthusiasts, which Ross noted is a result of supply not meeting demand. “There’s an undercurrent of jazz lovers in Toledo, but there are not any top stations playing it,� he said. “[‘H-Factor’] has become so popular, I don’t even know what to think of it — it’s bigger than me. These people are really gravitating toward what I play on the weekends.� Ross said the variety of music he offers and his on-air improvisation motivates him to keep going, as well as feedback from his listeners.

“

Jazz has too many genres to limit it. There are 27 types of jazz, and I try to play every last one of them. I like to introduce people to different types, so I try to weave it all together.� — Hugh Ross “One lady, she said I almost got her in trouble with her husband, because she went out for groceries, and she was listening to my show in her car. She said she sat in her car for an hour, because I was jamming so good. “She asked me to take it easy on her, so she wouldn’t sit in her car at the grocery store for so long.� At the request of many listeners wanting to meet Ross in person, he decided to pursue something more public, outside of the radio booth. “I’m a private person, but I realize that once something takes off like this, your privacy has to kind of take a back seat.�

Forrester’s on the River

He approached Forrester’s on the River about setting up a weekly DJ gig. Ross and the restaurant owners came up with a fitting time slot, during Forrester’s “Wine Down Wednesdays,� held 5-9 p.m. every Wednesday. Forrester’s owner Joy McQueary said she and her husband, John, had been running a special on Wednesdays already, and recognized that Ross could add some flavor to the evening. “In the bar area, we do half-price appetizers, and half-off glasses and bottles of wine [on Wednesdays],� McQueary said. “We’ve been doing it throughout the winter, and [Ross] came in and approached us, and we thought, ‘Well, why not tie it in together? We’ll do Wine Down Wednesdays and play a little jazz.’� Ross is eager to see what kind of response the collaboration will receive. “I love the ambience. I’m going to play some cool jazz.� McQueary said if things go well during the initial run in March, Forrester’s will continue to book Ross into the spring and summer. In addition to the Forrester’s gig, Ross said he will continue to seek out new possibilities and venue to serve jazz to Downtown Toledo. He

7

acknowledged some of Toledo’s suburbs have venues that offer quality jazz music, but said that the backdrop of Downtown Toledo could revive interest in hosting a jazz fest there, much like the popular, but now defunct Art Tatum Jazz Festival. “I want to bring that back, if I can generate the buzz,� Ross said. “Someday, that’s my dream.�

Jazz in Toledo

The Toledo jazz community has suffered a series of blows during the past few years. Jazz club Murphy’s Place closed in May 2011 after the death of co-owner Joan Russell. Famed jazz pianist Claude Black, a Murphy’s Place regular, died in January 2013. In November, health issues forced Suzanne Carroll to end “The Jazz Brunch,� her Sunday jazz show on 101.5 The River, after 18 years on the air. The Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Society still hosts “Jazz on the Maumee� Wednesday evenings at the Grand Plaza Hotel Downtown. When asked about the appeal of jazz, Ross enthusiastically cited its versatility. “You can dance to it, you can party to it and you can make love to it,� he said. “You can do anything to the jams I’m playing.� O

A new center has opened its doors on Toledo’s East Side with the mission of helping women facing unplanned pregnancies. Your First Look East Toledo Women’s Center, a program of Heartbeat of Toledo, provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and options counTODAK seling to women in need. Located in the Historic Weber Building at 101 Main St., the newest branch of Heartbeat’s outreach is looking to serve one of the city’s most at-risk areas for women and children. Lucas County has one of Ohio’s highest teen pregnancy rates, and more than 25 percent of households in East Toledo are headed by single mothers, according to Heartbeat’s

website. The area also had the highest number of referrals for allegations of abuse and neglect to Lucas County Children’s Services in 2012. Pat Todak, the executive director of Heartbeat of Toledo, said she had been scouting out spaces for the new location in East Toledo for months before settling on the Main Street location. She said it was important to find a warm, welcoming location for the center. “We hear that at other organizations, you’re just a number and you’re not treated like a person. We wanted this to be a quiet, calming place away from the pressures of the outside world,” Todak said. “If I went to a spa, this is what I would want it to look like. We don’t want anything in here that would put subtle guilt on people.” The new office space includes private counseling rooms, an ultrasound exam room and space for group classes. Two days a week, the center will offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, as well as confidential options counseling for pregnant women. n PREGNANCY CONTINUES ON 10

On other days, Your First Look will host “Earn While You Learn” classes for expectant parents. By attending classes, expectant parents can earn credits they can redeem for baby clothing, diapers and other items. Topics for the classes include healthy relationships, empowerment for dads and other parenting essentials. “They don’t just cover pregnancy.

SPRING 2014

We start in the first trimester and go all the way through toddlers,” Todak said. “We want to go beyond crisis pregnancy; we want them to be good moms and dads too. The women will get to know other moms in the area, so they have support and can set up things like babysitting co-ops.” Leeann Beach, patient services manager at Your First Look, said the office already had five new patient appointments scheduled. Beach will also make trips to community locations to reach out to young mothers, including nearby Waite High School. Heartbeat of Toledo was founded in 1971 by Eleonore Maier and Dr. John Hillenbrand. The pair saw a need for emergency pregnancy centers in Toledo and across the country, and opened their first center in Downtown Toledo. The main Toledo office is now located at 4041 W. Sylvania Ave. near Franklin Park Mall. Heartbeat International, now headquartered in Columbus, leads more than 1,100 locations worldwide. The Your First Look East Toledo Women’s Center will be dedicated to Irma Gray Hooker, a Toledo native who was known for her spirit of giving. Her son and his wife, Paul and Margo Hooker, made a substantial contribution to the new office. Members of the community

For the first time in franchise history, it won’t be Nick Vitucci behind the bench for the Toledo Walleye when the team returns to the ice March 1. The head coach announced Feb. 25 he was stepping down, effective immediately, but will stay on with the hockey club in a position to be determined. Assistant coach Dan Watson will take over as interim head coach for the final 21 games. The Walleye have struggled this season, coming off an eight-game losing streak and compiling an overall 16-31-3 record at the time of Vitucci’s announcement. “We’ve struggled with finding the right path to get this ship going in the right direction,” Vitucci said during a news conference at Huntington Center on Feb. 25. “It was my decision,” he said. “A different voice, a different philosophy is something certainly that might be a good thing right now. I care deeply about this organization and the success of it and if it means stepping down for the best of it, I was more than willing to do that.” Vitucci coached the Toledo Storm from 2003-07 and has been head coach of the Walleye since the franchise started in 2009. His all-time coaching record is 289-262-53. His record with

the Walleye is 149-158-32. Vitucci said he had been discussing the possibility of stepping down with team President and General Manager Joe Napoli for about two weeks. “Nick is the type of guy [who] when he says, ‘I put the organization first,’ he means that,” Napoli said. “It’s not an easy answer because there are so many things that contribute to success or failure. ... Nick will shoulder the blame, [but] the fact of the matter is when you look at the body of work, we’ve all contributed to that.” Vitucci’s new role with the team will be discussed more during the next few months, Napoli said. “We’re going to take some time and take a step back,” Napoli said. “Nick has a long list of concepts and ideas that we think could work and we’re going to take a look at those.” Vitucci said he has full confidence in Watson. “Dan’s got a great hockey mind,” Vitucci said. “[He] has done more work in his role than I guarantee you any other hockey assistant coach has done. He’s studied the game, he studies our team, he studies all the opposition, he studies the NHL, he studies everything. ... Now this is an opportunity for him to step forward and be the guy.” Watson said he is “absolutely” ready to take n VITUCCI CONTINUES ON 12

Not me,” Watson said. “I’m ready to dive in headfirst and really show the organization and the players for this 21-game tryout what I’m all about.” Vitucci said WATSON Watson will be a demanding coach. “He’s a stern person so he’s going to expect the most out of the players,” Vitucci said. The midseason change allows Watson the chance to demonstrate what he’s capable of while also giving the team an appropriate window to find a replacement in time for recruiting and preparing for next season, said Napoli, who said he started receiving resumes almost immediately. Watson, 34, a native of Glencoe, Ontario, said one statistic he’d like to turn around is the team’s position as worst in the league for giving up goals. “I was a defenseman … so we’re going to be a defensive team,” Watson said. “I want to play fast and make sure we have good puck control, making sure we have guys driving hard to the net. I want to be a team when other teams come in here or we’re on the road, we’re a tough team to play against, every single night.” Watson ended his playing career in Toledo with the Storm in 2006-07, where he played for Vitucci. He has coached under him with the Walleye since the team’s inaugural 2009-10 season. “Nick’s a player’s coach,” Watson said. “He knows when to push buttons, when to relax. ... Just learning to be professional and give it your all

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com every single day. That’s what he does, every day when he walks out of that office, he’s ready to go and that’s something I’ve learned from him.” The players were informed of the coaching change Feb. 25 at their morning practice. “I think the initial [reaction] was shock, but I think they’re excited too,” Watson said. “I’ve had great relationships with them all year long.” Vitucci admitted his frustration level this season has been “off the charts” as roster changes, particularly player call-ups, hampered the team’s ability to establish good rhythm on the ice. “It wears on your consistency,” Vitucci said. “There’s no worse feeling in the world [than] coming into a three-game set of games at home where you want to play well in front of your loyal and faithful fans [but] you just know in the back of your mind maybe we’re not good enough right now because of call-ups and injuries and all that.” Walleye players can be called up by affiliate clubs Detroit Red Wings or Chicago Blackhawks, but also by any American League Hockey (AHL) team, Vitucci said. Toledo’s geographical location in proximity to many AHL teams makes it a convenient club for call-ups and many players choose to play in Toledo for that reason. “It’s a challenging environment to be successful in,” Napoli said. “But that’s not to say other franchises don’t overcome that. This is an opportunity for us to do some self-reflection.” Napoli also hinted at more changes, saying the team will be “making some determinations” regarding its two NHL affiliates but declined to comment further. Vitucci said it was fulfilling to start a new team and he’s most proud of the professionalism he brought to the Walleye. He didn’t rule out coaching

again, but said he’s excited for upcoming opportunities. “I’m really excited with what lies ahead for me. I can’t tell you how excited I am,” Vitucci said. “When we came to this decision and we knew we were going with Dan now the rest of the way, obviously it was with a heavy heart because I’ve done this for a long, long time, but over the last four to five days the heart’s gotten a lot lighter and the excitement level’s gotten a lot higher.

“I’m really looking forward to the challenges that I have ahead and I’m going to dive into it the same way I’ve done for the past 12 years.” In the meantime, Vitucci said he will help Watson any way he can as well as recruit and scout for next season. Napoli said he’s confident the team will be able to fix any issues. “If there’s a formula out there that works, we’ll figure it out. There’s no doubt in my mind,” Napoli said. “You

None of us have been successful over the course of our lives without having to face something like this. It only makes you stronger, only makes you better. When you look at organizations that do extremely well, they take opportunities like this and they use it as a catalyst and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.” O

One thing I’ve yet to knew anything was going on until I came home from school write about is bullying. and my parents told me I’ve held back because that he had been taken it’s been in the news a lot, to a mental hospital. and many people use it That night will forever as a buzzword. I finally stick in my mind, when realized I need to tell my I learned how powerful story because it may help bullying can be. someone reading. My brother was being As host of “The physically and mentally Morning Rush,” I’ve gone bullied at school so often to schools and spoken KELLY that he decided to try and about bullying and how it’s impacted my life. My story was take his own life. He did not succeed, very difficult and embarrassing to tell and I thank God for that every time I when I first started to share it. Now I tell this story. When I went to the hospital to see see it as a vehicle to help others. I have a lot of experience with bul- my brother, I was turned away by his lying. My oldest brother was a victim. doctor. Apparently my brother told

Sid

them I was partially to blame for his condition. Really? I was 8. How could I be responsible for making someone want to kill himself? I got the answer later when I took part in sessions with my brother’s doctors and my family. The house I grew up in was physical. I was the youngest of three boys, and I got picked on all the time for being little. I would lash out and try to prove to everyone how big I was. I would hit my brothers and friends. I would call them names and do whatever I could to make sure they knew I wasn’t the weak one. The damage here is no one ever stopped me. Not my parents — who definitely heard and saw me behave this way. Teachers never said anything, and my friends never told an adult. My behavior continued until I realized it could have cost my brother his life.

One of the first stories I covered at KISS FM was about a kid from Australia who stood up to a bully by picking him up and body-slamming him. He got suspended for it, and it really upset me. I remember saying on air that if someone would have stood up to me, I would have never done the things to the people I had the chance to hurt. I decided to take that message and team up with anyone who would help. That’s when I was introduced to Dr. Lisa Kovach from the University of Toledo. We have spoken to students about bullying and its effects on young kids and adults. When I tell my story to kids, I always see a look of shock on their faces when I tell them I used to be a bully. That look used to embarrass me because I was ashamed at what I had done, not

only to my brother but to the kids I considered my friends. It’s taken some time, but I’ve turned something I’m not proud of into something I’m more than happy to share. I’ve taken that embarrassment and shame and turned it into a positive by teaching others to take a stand against the bully. You don’t have to meet violence with violence; you just have to have enough courage to tell someone. Hopefully, with my help and the help of others like Kovach, the person you’re telling will know what to do and how to get you help. This is what I’m encouraging everyone to do. Find something in your life you’ve done wrong and figure out how to right it. It could be as easy — or as hard — as an apology. As long as you take steps to correct mistakes you’ve made, I think you’ll be OK with them. O

14 Leadership

March 2, 2014

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com

By Jay Hathaway TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Perhaps some of us are born leaders, but even those who seem to be predisposed to leading others can benefit from a nurturing process. Leadership Toledo has made it its mission to provide that service, from youth and continuing into adulthood. The organization has become known for its programs like Youth in Philanthropy Encouraging Excellence (YIPEE), Youth Leadership Toledo and Students in Action, as well as its adult program Community Leadership Toledo and its annual fundraiser Restaurant Week Toledo. This year’s adult and youth programs are in the midst of a nine-month series of classes, tours and brainstorming sessions aimed at offering Toledoans of all ages the necessary tools and knowledge to better serve their communities. Leadership Toledo Executive Director Dave Schlaudecker, a former lawyer for Owens Corning, has been with the organization for 13 years. He described the humble beginnings and transformation of the small group that is now a formidable community presence. “Leadership Toledo started over 35 years ago, when a group got together at a restaurant, My Brother’s Place, above Trinity Episcopal Church on Adams Street, where our offices are located today,” Schlaudecker said.

“They thought that there should be some opportunity to get together and learn more about Toledo, and figure out how to serve it.” The lunches turned into half-day sessions, and by 1980, it developed into a full-on “servant leadership” program called ToledoScape, which was later renamed Leadership Toledo. “That turned into a bit of the model that other cities used in taking participants through eight- or nine-month programs that expose them to all kinds of different aspects of the region, [like] the history of the region, issues facing the region, things that need help, areas that work well, poverty and criminal justice,” Schlaudecker said. The organization started looking for those who wanted to become involved in the community, especially outside of the political arena. Schlaudecker noted that Leadership Toledo seeks out those who want to become involved with nonprofit organizations, raise funds and look for opportunities to volunteer for community projects. “A hallmark of what the program has with it is the opportunity for each classmate to be involved in a project in the community that would benefit a not-for-profit,” he said. Schlaudecker said Leadership Toledo has served 80 different nonprofits over the years, helping with issues like identity, branding and mergers. “It teaches [people] how to work

with a nonprofit, and to work with each other in a very different setting.” In the hierarchy of a nonprofit, everyone is essentially equal, so one must find ways to become a “servant leader” of the organization, Schlaudecker said.

Testimony

Tony Ruth, area director for N2 Publishing, initially became acquainted with Leadership Toledo by consultation. “They needed some help with some things, and they reached out to me because I had some expertise with printing and a few other things,” he said. “Long story short, I fell in love with what they were doing, and I decided to become a member of the 2013-14 class.” Ruth said that although he was excited to jump into the program, he was not sure what he was getting into. “I literally had no clue. As soon as I found out what they were really about, I couldn’t wait to get involved, primarily because I love Toledo. I’m passionate about Toledo.” Ruth’s passion for his city helped him recognize the importance of programs like Leadership Toledo. “If we support an organization like Leadership Toledo, and we put sincere energy into educating our business leaders through this program, in the long term, it can really change the psychological dynamic that is in this town.” n LEADERSHIP CONTINUES ON 16

16 Leadership n LEADERSHIP CONTINUED FROM 14 Ruth added that the “energy is right,” but there is still a need for investors to help take Downtown and the city to the next level. “We need to get over that hump to where we can get significant investors. We do have some who have already put their money where their mouth is and have done what they can do to redevelop real estate into beautiful establishments. But on a large scale, we’re still not there yet. “Hopefully, the youthful energy that has come in as of late will continue to get over that hump,” he added. “Leadership Toledo, in my opinion, plays a vital role to achieve that end.” Ruth said the session on servant leadership was one of his favorites so far. “Instead of dictating from the top down how things are going to be, it really takes a new approach and asks the question, ‘How much more successful can we be as a community and in our personal lives, if we look at leadership as an opportunity to serve those who support us?’” Sarah Beavers, executive director at the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce, found out about Leadership Toledo through a fellow board member, who invited her to a leadership breakfast. The encounter prompted some research, and soon, Beavers asked the chamber to back her in applying for this year’s class. “My overall impression is that this organization is such a well-oiled machine,” Beavers said. “Dave and his staff all have such a wealth of knowl-

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com edge that is immeasurable.” Like Ruth, Beavers said her favorite session so far was servant leadership. “I found it very insightful, seeing that I report to a board,” Beavers said. “I learned so much of how I need to communicate in order to make my board and organization thrive.” She added that Leadership Toledo provides benefits for participants on both a professional and personal level. “Professionally, it is helping me guide my chamber in the direction I feel is needed. It has given me ideas that I never would have considered prior, and has inspired me, personally, to want to give back as much as I can.” Aaron Phillips, a program director at the Ability Center of Greater Toledo, saw Leadership Toledo as an opportunity to reach out and develop new relationships in the community. “I was actually looking for networking opportunities, and after a meeting at home, and then looking them up online, I submitted my application, and was accepted as their first student for the class of 2013-14.” Phillips said his initial goals for the program were quickly reached. “I thought it was pretty cool. There were enough people in the program that I knew several people in our class walking in, but I [quickly] made a dozen connections with people I never met before.” Phillips said he enjoyed the daylong session dedicated to health care because it pertains to his field, but noted another session that benefited him, personally. “The tour of Toledo was a really fun

day. We started at the top floor of the Fifth Third building, and got a visual tour of how some of the neighborhoods in Toledo were created,” Phillips said. “We [also] visited some spots in Toledo I never even knew existed.” Schlaudecker said the tour is always among the most popular days and one of his personal favorites as well. “It is just a fascinating day. We talk about the great leaders of our community, and what they did,” he said. The tour highlights some of the original great Toledo families like the Secors, the Trilbys and the Stranahans, as well as lesser-known families like the Gunckels, who started the Boys and Girls Clubs of Toledo. “We bring that around to current people who are doing wonderful things in the community,” Schlaudecker said. “Those are the kinds of things that open people’s eyes to what is going on right now.” Participants will also get the chance to experience a poverty immersion program provided by the United Way. “You get a huge feel for the desperateness of the super-poor, without it being overdramatic,” Schlaudecker said. “It is reality based.” Schlaudecker added that the variety of topics tackled in Leadership Toledo sessions are what makes it effective. “At the end of the day, what I want is for a class member to say, ‘Wow, I really learned something about Northwest Ohio, our problems, our opportunities, and this is somewhere I want to put my efforts into,’” Schlaudecker said. “That is why we try to offer a really broad spectrum in our programming.”

Youthful Energy

According to Phillips, friendships and connections have been a great benefit of the adult program, but the youth program, which follows a similar curriculum, is a primary strength of Leadership Toledo. “That is really what the program is about — supporting the youth leadership program, and meeting some of the talented students, spending the day with them, and having great conversations with them,” he said. Schlaudecker was also eager to praise the youth program. “About 17 years ago, the people in Leadership began to ask, ‘If this program is working so well for adults, shouldn’t we be trying to do something for the youth?’” he said. Youth Leadership Toledo participants are high school sophomores from 30 area high schools. “[Sophomores] are acclimated to high school, and if we hit them [then], we still have two more years to help

March 2, 2014 them influence their high school,” Schlaudecker said. One of the strengths of the youth programs is they are tuition-free and open to any student from any high school associated with the program. Annual fundraisers like Restaurant Week Toledo help cover the costs. Participating schools nominate students by various processes, then send names to Leadership Toledo for review. One or two students from each school are invited to apply. “We’re not looking, necessarily, for the president of the student class,” Schlaudecker said. “We love to get those who have so much potential, and they haven’t quite hit it yet, so we can help bring them up to the next level.” Schlaudecker said this type of nurturing will help to form a new generation of servant leaders in Toledo. “All this is based on service to our community,” he said.

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com

From Idol to Idiot By Matt Liasse Toledo Free Press Star Staff Writer star@toledofreepress.com

In 2004, Green Day released “American Idiot,” a song criticizing the state of the United States under then-President George W. Bush. “When it was written, it was that post-9/11 Bush era with sort of high paranoia and fear with all the propaganda being spit out,” said Carson Higgins, a cast member in the musical of the same name. The show will rock in the Stranahan Theater, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd., at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on March 2. The show is 90 minutes with no intermission. The song “American Idiot” appeared on the album of the same title along with hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Holiday” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” The rock opera went on to win a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and, five years later, was made into a musical by Michael Mayer, known for “Spring Awakening.” “‘American Idiot’ felt so complete to me,” Mayer said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. “[It] has a huge emotional arc. There was an amazing narrative that was, at times, perplexing and ambiguous, but also so full of possibilities with a multitude of

voices. Some of the songs — I heard them as dialogue.” Higgins said the production has a story arc and characters. It’s more like a musical than a concert. The show follows a group of suburban youths unhappy with the state of their home in Jingletown, USA, so they make their way to city life. Among the topics covered by the show HIGGINS are pregnancy, drugs and war. “It’s the most physically demanding show I think you could even be in, apart from Cirque du Soleil,” Higgins said. St. Jimmy, played by Higgins, is a drug dealer character introduced in the album’s sixth track. The role has been played on Broadway by Melissa Etheridge, “The Voice” contestant Tony Vincent and Green Day’s own Billie Joe Armstrong. “He’s very much the rock star of the show,” Higgins said. “There’s a whole musical going on, I like to think, and then all of a sudden it’s the St. Jimmy show every once in a while. “Literally, he comes out and he’s

just very exciting and in your face,” Higgins said. “He kind of gets to break the fourth wall every once in a while — what’s not to like? I get to wear these awesome costumes and come out and sing some badass songs.” Higgins has always been a fan of Green Day; the first album he ever owned was the 1994 release “Dookie.” When “American Idiot” came out, Higgins said he remembers listening to the album while delivering pizzas, thinking it would make a good musical. “The second song on the album is ‘Jesus of Suburbia,’ and it’s like a nineminute song. I was listening to it and I was like ‘God, this should be on a stage,’” Higgins said. Higgins has been in the cast since 2012, working his way up from the ensemble to his current role. He’s traveled all over the world, including across America, Europe and Japan. Some may recognize Higgins, of Malibu, Calif., as a contestant from “American Idol,” about whom thenjudge Steven Tyler from Aerosmith said, “If we bottled your fire, we could light all of LA.” “At the time, I was more nervous to be in front of J. Lo because she was so strikingly gorgeous,” Higgins said. “I had a crush on her when I was younger.” n IDIOT CONTINUES ON 19

n IDIOT CONTINUED FROM 18 Higgins got the idea to audition for the show from the kids at a beach camp where he worked as a counselor. His goal was to just have his audition aired on television so the kids could see it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I went, they just kept saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never in a million years thought I was going to make it into Hollywood week.â&#x20AC;? He is glad he did â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Idolâ&#x20AC;? because it opened doors for

â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Idiot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It taught me a lot about myself,â&#x20AC;? he said. Tickets for the show start at $28 and are available at theaterleague.com and stranahantheater.com, by visiting the box office or by calling (419) 381-8851. Higgins said the message of the show will resonate with people of all ages, given the mature content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the end of the show, what I found personally and [by] talking to

people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen [it], theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really kind of taken aback by the fact that the message winds up being that America is whatever you want it to be and you have to fight to make it what you want it to be,â&#x20AC;? Higgins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the America that was sold to us when we were younger. This cookie-cutter, white picket fence American family is a minority and a rarity nowadays. â&#x20AC;Ś America has changed forever post 9/11.â&#x20AC;? O

COMICS RACK

Harold Ramis: Nerd icon Writer, director, actor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sure, the late Harold Ramis was all these things, but to a generation of nerds only one thing really mattered: He was in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghostbusters.â&#x20AC;? And not only was he in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghostbusters,â&#x20AC;? but in it he developed an icon for nerds everywhere in the lovable-but-warped Egon Spengler. And I once got to put words in his mouth. Back in 2010 I had the extreme honor of cowriting an official â&#x20AC;&#x153;G h o s t bu s t e r sâ&#x20AC;? comic book for IDW Publishing and to play with characters and situations from my favorite comedy film of all time. That was a little bit daunting. I was determined to write them in a way that a reader would hear the actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; voices in their heads while reading the story â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to do that, I had to channel Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and yes, Harold Ramis. It was Ramisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; character Egon I was most nervous about writing. In

Egon, Ramis represented nerds and geeks across the spectrum, though I suspect he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of either himself in real life. The beauty of his writing and acting of Egon is that he brought warmth and humor to a character who could have come off as pretty cold and distant. The other Ghostbusters give him a hard time on occasion, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent that Egonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the boys. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their resident brainiac, sure, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a little child at times, interested in candy bars and eager to scrap when he feels heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been wronged. And, to the triumph of nerds, he gets the girl at the end of the movie. Ramis was a renaissance man, combining writing skills, precise comic timing and a charm and wit most actors would die for. The world will clearly be a less humorous place with his passing, but at least now he can get to the bottom of that pesky poltergeist situation. O

The 86th Academy Awards

Michigan student to take Oscar stage By James A. Molnar Toledo Free Press Film Editor jmolnar@toledofreepress.com

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — A University of Michigan student will have a golden experience on Oscar Sunday. Zaineb Abdul-Nabi will be helping hand out golden Academy Award statuettes to celebrity presenters here on March 2. The senior, studying screen arts and culture at U-M, won a nationwide college search for “Team Oscar” by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which puts on the Oscar ceremony annually. Each student applicant submitted a one-minute film and answered an essay question to be considered. Six were chosen; Abdul-Nabi is one of the lucky students. In her submission video, she described her passion for filmmaking: “I’m a gonzo cinematographer, seizing the richness of the everyday, searching for the infinite forms of strength and tenacity that make us all extraordinary humans.” Abdul-Nabi said in a phone interview with Toledo Free Press that she enjoys watching human interactions.

“For me, I really like capturing the way that people interact with each other,” she said, “and what we can learn from that.” In her brief essay, Abdul-Nabi wrote about a film that inspired her. She chose “Volver” by Pedro Almodóvar. She wrote about how great the movie was on different levels and how it featured well-developed female characters. Originally from the Bronx in New York City, Abdul-Nabi came to Michigan to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering. She decided to switch to pursue film instead and is on track to graduate in May. The other five students selected for Team Oscar are Tayo Amos from Stanford University, Nathan FlanaganFrankl from Chapman University, Jeanpaul Isaacs from Rutgers University, Bryson Kemp from Muhlenberg College and Mackenna Millet from Pepperdine University. The students recently arrived in Los Angeles for a week full of industry events and activities, including studio tours and meetings with filmmakers. Abdul-Nabi, 22, said this was

something she was looking forward to. “I know this sounds really nerdy,” she said. “I’m just really excited to learn about the history of the Academy and really see how they preserve films and not only the medium itself, but how they preserve the history of film.” At the ceremony, Abdul-Nabi will be rooting for “12 Years a Slave” for Best Picture. If she could choose, she said she would love to help deliver a statuette to Lupita Nyong’o, nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for “12 Years a Slave.” “I think she is flawless; I think she is amazing,” she said, “And you can quote me on that.” This is not the first time the Oscar spotlight has shone on U-M. Last year, a graduate was honored with a Student Academy Award for his short film. Perry Janes, a 2012 U-M film and English graduate, received the silver medal in the alternative category for his short film “Zug.” Janes was the first student honored from the university by the Academy, which started the awards in 1972.

“Zug,” a film based on Janes’ short story of the same name, follows two young men who complete a dare by visiting the mysterious Zug Island, a manmade island along the River Rouge and Detroit

River near Detroit. The 86th Academy Awards airs March 2 on ABC at 7 p.m. O

Local pros offer tips to kids at Shorties U film workshop By Sarah Ottney Toledo Free Press star Managing Editor sottney@toledofreepress.com

Wielding an array of tablets, smartphones and video cameras, 51 area students spent a morning learning some basic filmmaking skills from local experts. The first session of Shorties U, a four-week workshop for fourththrough eighth-graders, was held Feb. 22 at Sylvania Northview High School. At the end of the day, the students were able to test some of their new skills at a surprise performance from “American Idol” contestant Keri Lynn Roche of Ann Arbor. Shorties U is part of the second annual Tree City Film Festival, set for April 24-26 and organized by the Sylvania Community Arts Commission. The idea behind the workshop is to introduce techniques that will help kids create their own three- to five-minute films to submit to the film fest’s Shorties film challenge, said Tree City Film Festival committee member Jeremy Baumhower, who is organizing the Shorties and Shorties U events. Baumhower is also a columnist for Toledo Free Press. “Last year we did the Shorties film challenge and when it was all done, I thought it was kind of unfair to ask kids to produce something that they may have never had an education in, so we took that and we filled the need,” Baumhower said. “I wanted to ... connect the kids with all kinds of people and ultimately inspire them to make a movie, but also just use their device in a little bit bigger fashion.” Last year’s inaugural Shorties challenge drew about 20 submissions, said Jennifer Archer, executive director of the

Sylvania Community Arts Commission. Shorties U drew students from across the region. Beyond teaching technical skills, Archer said she hopes the workshop will help kids gain confidence and inspire their creativity. “I want to give kids the opportunity to see that there are different ways they can be creative,” said Archer, whose mother was an art teacher and brother is an independent filmmaker. “I’ve never been able to draw or paint; I’m just not that type of creative. It’s just a different way to express yourself. I want to give kids a different way to soar.” Baumhower led the students in creativity exercises to start brainstorming ideas for their films. Toledo Free Press design editor and film editor James A. Molnar had the students design movie posters. WTOL-11 reporter Ali Hoxie covered how to decide what is most important when filming a news story. MacCafe employee Julia Koralewski, an art teacher at Sylvan Elementary School, covered basic tips and tricks for using various devices. Kiri Thibert, 11, a fifth-grader at Maplewood Elementary in Sylvania, said her favorite class was the technique class. “I learned not to have a person straight in the middle of the camera, but to have them at another angle,” she said. Grace Fite, 10, a fourth-grader at Woodland Elementary in Perrysburg, said she loves making videos and her favorite part of the day was filming Roche singing. “There’s always a filming device near me somewhere,” Fite said. “I just like it because it’s something I can do when I’m bored.” That’s why her mom, Liz Fite, enrolled her in Shorties U. “She’s very creative and always

filming something,” she said. “I thought it would be something she would be interested in.” Shorties U will continue March 1, 8 and 15. The Tree City Film Festival will include the Shorties on April 24; a screening of the Oscar-nominated shorts April 25; and a screening of

The 50-hour film challenge, to be held March 21-23, is open to high school, college and adult teams who must produce a film in 50 hours or less. Cost to participate is $25 for student teams or $35 for adult teams. For more information, visit treecityfilmfestival.com. O
