Primary concerns Y

ou can’t fool all the Lucas County voters all the time, but apparently Phil Copeland fooled at least 17,801 voters in the county recorder race. Copeland captured 57 percent of the March 6 Democratic primary vote to top James Seaman and Kevin Eff . Copeland will face Republican George Sarantou on Nov. 6. Copeland did not attend the Feb. 27 recorder candidate forum to tell the public what he would bring to the office. Prior to his election victory, he told Toledo Free Press, “I want to go and be a Thomas F.POUNDS part of it and I may have some ideas when I get in there.” The recorder position is important beyond its modest level of public recognition; Copeland’s vague goals should be a red fl ag to informed voters. Since we now Michael S. MILLER have eight months to schedule it, Toledo Free Press is offering to sponsor and host any forum or debate between Copeland and Sarantou. Surely both candidates will agree to meet in public and discuss their specific plans for the office. Copeland’s victory was just one discordant note in a primary that also saw local GOP aspirant Jon Stainbrook hijack Ronald Reagan’s legacy — and Jonathan Binkley’s surname — in his successful run for state central committee. We are confident that had Reagan spent five minutes in a room with Stainbrook, he would have leftStainbrook needing surgical help to remove a jar of jelly beans. In other election news, Rep. Marcy Kaptur defeated Cuyahoga County-based Rep. Dennis Kucinich in arguably the most important contest of the night to people in Northwest Ohio. There were legitimate concerns over how much attention Ku-

cinich would have given our region; though her territory is now much greater, Kaptur will never let her eye leave the Toledo area. Conventional wisdom has the heavily Democratic District 9 backing Kaptur over Republican Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher, but the stage is set for some interesting debates as the two battle for the seat. Josh Mandel dominated the Republican primary for Ohio Senate, garnering more votes than all five of his opponents combined. He will not beat incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown by that margin, but this is a race to watch as the GOP’s rising star takes on Brown, the career politician who defeated incumbent Mike DeWine in 2006. Perrysburg opted out of TARTA service, a short-sighted decision that will have major ram-

DECISION 2012

By Brigitta Burks TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Ohio’s 9th District was radically altered, but Rep. Marcy Kaptur captured its votes, triumphing over fellow Rep. Dennis Kucinich on March 6. “We just feel great gratitude; we feel elation; we feel a sense of completion of our campaign strategy we planned and executed, and I’m very pleased and I think we achieved our goals,” Kaptur told Toledo Free Press on March 7. The congresswoman, the senior-most woman in the U.S. House of Representatives, has been in office since 1983. Kaptur will face Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, in the November election. In the Democrats’ race to represent District 9, Kaptur received 56 percent of the district’s votes while Kucinich had about 40 percent, according to unofficial results. Documentary company owner Graham Veysey took 4 percent. Lucas County’s love for Kaptur was apparent — she received 94 percent of county votes while Kucinich took 4 percent and Veysey took 2 percent. Steve Fought, Kaptur’s campaign manager, said she beat Kucinich about 21-to-1 in Lucas County. “Usually in the political world, if you defeat somebody 2-to-1, it’s a landslide and if it’s 3-to-1, it’s a historic landslide — 21-to-1 is an avalanche,” he said.

Hard worker “There are fewer voters in a primary, but she overwhelmingly won them. It’s a testament to what a hard worker she is,” said Toledo City

Council President Joe McNamara. Kaptur also won Erie, Lorain and Ottawa counties. In Kucinich’s home turf of Cuyahoga County, he took 73 percent compared to Kaptur’s 24 percent and Veysey’s 3 percent. The congresswoman said she was grateful for the support she received in Cuyahoga County. “For those who are unfamiliar with us, we intend to work very hard to get to know them,” she said of her potential constituents. Decreased population in Ohio resulted in the state losing two congressional districts. The newly drawn congressional map resulted in the massive northern district that includes Toledo and Cleveland. The 2011 Ohio Apportionment Board, made up of Republicans Gov. John Kasich, State Auditor Dave Yost, Secretary of State Jon Husted and State Senator Tom Niehaus and Ohio House Democratic Leader Armond Budish, created the new map. Lucas County now includes two districts. Kaptur said the shortened, unexpected campaign season was “almost a physical impossibility.” “It creates another level of complexity in a job that’s already very difficult,” she added.

Victims of circumstance Toledo City Councilman D. Michael Collins, who is working with Kaptur on the Veterans Administration medical facility, slated to open this fall, said of the redistricting, “[Kucinich and Kaptur] really are victims of a very unfair set of circumstances and that’s politics at its worst. They carved a congressional district in order to kill one of them.”

Kaptur remained largely optimistic about the size and span of her newly designed district. It includes superior arts, rail and transportation systems and the automotive industry, she said. “This is a powerhouse of a district — they’ve given us the crown jewels of Ohio,” Kaptur said. Kucinich congratulated Kaptur in his concession speech March 6, but referred to Kaptur’s campaign as “lacking in integrity, filled with false truths.” In response to his claim, Kaptur said, “He ran a spirited camp. We did as well; I’m going to give him time for reflection.” At press time, Kucinich had not reached out to Kaptur and his campaign had not returned calls from Toledo Free Press. Kaptur did have positive things to say about her former rival. “He had very good constituent service; we pride ourselves on equal service in that regard,” she said. To continue providing that level of service over a wide area, reconfiguration of her offices and staffing is necessary, Kaptur said, jokingly adding that she may need a Jet Ski. But before buying any water transportation, Kaptur has to face Wurzelbacher in the fall. Kaptur has some concerns about her new opponent. “[Wurzelbacher] doesn’t live in the district. I don’t actually know what he’s achieved for our area,” she said. Steve Kraus, Wurzelbacher’s opponent in the primary, said he would support his former rival against Kaptur. “I don’t think we can afford two more years of Marcy Kaptur or four more years of President Obama,” Kraus said.

Of Kaptur’s large-scale victory, he said, “[Kaptur] really crushed [Kucinich]. Marcy’s a very formidable opponent. She’s a smart woman; she’s been at this a long time. I was actually a little surprised. I was hoping Dennis would pull it off,”he said, adding, “Hats off to her.”

Back to work Kaptur did not get much time to relish her victory — as of March 7, she was back in Washington, D.C., and scheduled to attend a major defense briefing March 8. She is also seeking a

leadership position on the Appropriations Committee, she said. Her win and potential chairing of that committee mean a lot to Lucas County, McNamara said. The new, larger district could also have positive implications for the area. “We now have a bridge between these two communities that have more similarities than differences,” he said. Before continuing on her busy schedule, Kaptur had this to say about her win: “It means that our region will still have a voice, despite the district getting larger, we will not lose our voice.” ✯

Samuel Wurzelbacher’s first exchange with Rep. Marcy Kaptur happened when he was 17 years old, during an ROTC function for the representative. The then-Springfield High School student cornered Kaptur and gave her a piece of his mind for voting for a bill that funded Planned Parenthood, a decision with which he disagreed. More than 20 years later, Wurzelbacher has a far bigger audience than his mortified superior, who cut that conversation short. And, now known as “Joe the Plumber,” he is determined restart that conversation and carry it along the narrow corridor that wraps around Lake Erie to make Ohio’s 9th Congressional District. He’s talking about jobs and taxes. And he’s talking about why Kaptur’s decades in office have yielded, in his opinion, negative results. “[She’s] bringing home the bacon and the pork, that only goes to certain individuals and groups,” Wurzelbacher said in a March 7 interview with Toledo Free Press. Bloated bureaucracy, the federal deficit and the inability to balance budgets are all elements within the federal government that plague average citizens, Wurzelbacher said. He blamed both Democrats and Republicans. “[Kaptur] likes to tout experience and wisdom; I don’t see that as being a benefit to the American people,” he said. “Look how much money they have wasted. She’s been in there while

all this has been in place.” One of Wurzelbacher’s priorities includes cutting back on “waste” by scrutinizing the budget line by line and eliminating certain departments. The federal Environmental Protection Agency would be one of the first on his personal chopping block. He disagrees with a number of programs that the agency funds, particularly citing a grant that the EPA awarded to a dance troupe to educate children about pollution. “It’s not that I don’t want clean air and clean water but the bureaucracy has gotten in the way of getting things done,” he said. Adhering to the pursuit of stronger state sovereignty, he said each state should regulate its own environment, independent of any federal agency. Breaking down regulations and changing the tax code are his two other priorities. He supports former presidential candidate Herman Cain’s “9-9-9” plan, which urges the government to dump the present tax code and instate a 9 percent personal income tax, a 9 percent corporate income tax and a 9 percent national sales tax. Wurzelbacher’s platforms were similar to his Republican opponent Steve Kraus’, who trailed him by three percent. Wurzelbacher’s campaign reportedly outspent Kraus 6-to-1. “I expected to do well. I expected to win, but I wasn’t surprised at the results,” Kraus told Toledo Free Press on March 7. “It was the most exciting race out there. I wasn’t the highlight, but I almost upset the apple cart.” Wurzelbacher said his national endorsements and near-celebrity status will help him against Kaptur. He said the perception that he is

City payroll tax renewal passes, Mandel to face Brown By Brigitta Burks TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Super Tuesday saw Mitt Romney winning Ohio, but Rick Santorum winning Lucas County; Rep. Marcy Kaptur triumphing over Rep. Dennis Kucinich despite Lucas County Board of Elections snafus; and the 3/4 percent payroll tax levy’s passage. All results below are unofficial and based on Lucas County Board of Election and Secretary of State figures at press time. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won 38 percent of Ohio votes while Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had 37 percent. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich finished with 15 percent and Congressman Ron Paul ended up with 9 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who have both withdrawn from the race, finished with around half a percentage point each. Romney, who visited Toledo on Feb. 29, ended up with 37 percent of the votes in Lucas County. Santorum, who visited Perrysburg on Feb. 28, received 38 percent. Paul received 13 percent and Gingrich claimed 12 percent in the area. Idaho, Virginia, Massachusetts, Alaska and Vermont also went to Romney on March 6. Santorum took North Dakota, Oklahoma and Tennessee and Gingrich won in Georgia. Romney now has 415 delegates and Santorum has 176 delegates, according to the Associated Press. In the City of Toledo, 57 percent of voters approved Issue 1, the 3/4 percent payroll tax renewal, while 43 percent were against it. The temporary tax brings in about $51 million annually

and has been on the books for 28 years. Passage means the city can maintain its plan of graduating more police and fire classes in addition to a “robust� street repaving program, said Toledo City Council President Joe McNamara. “Had it failed, that would probably have been the first thing to go,� he said. “I didn’t know what to expect because these have been challenging times in terms of the economy,� he said. “I’m just grateful that a majority continue to support the City of Toledo.� In the race to face Deomcratic Sen. Sherrod Brown in November, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel took 63 percent of votes. Michael Pryce earned 14 percent and Donna Glisman earned 12 percent. David Dodt and Eric LaMont Gregory both took about 5 percent while Russell Bliss took .21 percent.

DECISION 2012

Kaptur campaign: ‘Time for BOE to get its act together’ By Brigitta Burks TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Despite a few incident reports and some voters potentially receiving the wrong ballots, the March 6 election went smoothly in Lucas County, one Board of Elections official said. But Rep. Marcy Kaptur’s campaign had harsh words for the Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE). Voters who went to Reynolds Elementary School in Precinct 24-C before 1 p.m. may have received the ballot for District 5 instead of District 9, said Steve Fought, Kaptur’s campaign manager. The race for District 9 HUSTED was the result of a much disputed redistricting that led to Kaptur facing fellow Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich. Democrat Angela Zimmann ran unopposed in District 5. Deputy Director Dan DeAngelis of the BOE said the exact number of wrongly issued ballots hasn’t been determined yet, but Fought believed the number was about 70. Reynolds Elementary was the location for Precinct 24-C, which is split between District 5 (24-C5) and District 9 (24-C9). However, there are no voters and mostly just trees in the portion that accounts for District 5, DeAngelis said. The problem might have stemmed from poll workers switching encoders after the first one did not work properly. Instead of fixing the problem, the new encoder encoded ballots for 24-C5 instead of 24-C9. “A voter or two brought that to [poll workers’] attention,” DeAngelis said. “They were wondering why Marcy Kaptur wasn’t on their ballot.” The BOE sent two operatives to fix the situation and contacted the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office (SOS) to determine what the next step was. The SOS advised that potentially affected voters return to Reynolds to recast their votes provisionally, said Matt McClellan, press secretary for the Secretary of State’s office. Only two or three voters came back as far as he knows, DeAngelis said. DeAngelis and McClellan said their offices will continue to look into the situation. It has yet to be determined if any Republican votes were affected, DeAngelis added.

Sloppy work On March 6, before results were in, Fought said the mistake could lead to legal action depending on the election’s results. However, with Kaptur’s large win over Kucinich, he said he doesn’t see much reason for legal action. “It’s just sloppy work on the part of the Board of Elections. Voters in Lucas County have had enough of this; it’s time for the Board of Elections to get its act together,” he said. “The only sure things in life are death, taxes and Lucas County having the worst election board in the State of Ohio,” Fought told WTOL-11. Fought said the mistake may have been made because poll workers didn’t understand the new redistricting. While that could have played a part in the confusion, the split precinct was a large factor, DeAngelis said. The BOE would like to get rid of split precincts for the November election, he added. “That would be the main goal; beyond that maybe, better perhaps training,” he said. Dennis Lange, a former booth official and BOE employee who recruited and trained Republican poll workers, said he was appalled at the mistakes he saw when he voted this cycle. He was fired last summer after Secretary of State Jon Husted ruled that he and another employee had “irreconcilable differences” with the two Republican board members. Husted has chastised the BOE a number of times for being unable to make personnel and policy decisions. He appointed Meghan Gallagher as BOE director, a move approved by the BOE on March 2. Lange said that ballot encoding was incorrect at his polling location, and that he and numerous other voters at the time were given the wrong party ballot. “It’s a nightmare for me because the stuff that I taught them over the years, somebody just untaught,” he said. DeAngelis declined to comment on Lange’s reaction, but said the number of incidents wasn’t particularly high and overall the election went “pretty smooth.”

One issue ballot appeared for Ronald when he started to vote, which he recorded, expecting the Republican candidates’ ballots to follow — however, nothing came up. Since he had officially recorded his stance, Ronald was not able to recast his vote. “It wasn’t my husband’s fault. All we kept getting was, ‘I’m sorry, but you recorded the vote,’” Michelle said. “All they had to do was reprogram my card, [the worker] could stand there and watch me vote,” Ronald said. “I’d have signed anything to be able to vote.” Michelle also had issues with her card being continually rejected until a worker

was able to reprogram it. At press time, the Schnapps were still waiting to hear back from the BOE. DeAngelis said he was not familiar with the Schnapps’ case, but that he would look into it. “I don’t take this lightly, but mistakes are going to happen and something like that is an isolated incident,” he said. A sign informing him that his polling location was closed due to technical difficulties greeted engineer Brad Lowery when he went to the Heatherdowns Branch Library at 7:15 a.m. March 6. “I thought it was odd that they had shut down first thing in the morning,” he said. “I don’t know if that’s necessarily the way it should

DeAngelis confirmed that there was a problem with polling machines that technicians were able to resolve. He said voters may have been able to vote on paper until the technicians arrived. “We’ll be going through any and all incidents over the next few weeks,” he said. “You are going to have mistakes and errors and you never want to have any, but you look at the incidents and try to pinpoint it.” ✯

CITY OF TOLEDO

Libbey committee may have home for memorabilia By Brigitta Burks TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

The former principal of the closed Libbey High School met with about 10 alumni and community members March 5 to discuss the future of the school’s trophies and memorabilia. Gayle Schaber, the last Libbey principal and current director of special projects and compensatory programs for Toledo Public Schools (TPS), arranged for the meeting. Roughly 350 pieces of Libbey memorabilia rest in 45 boxes at a TPS storage unit. “I’m leading the charge with Toledo Public to let us do some things with our beautiful memories,” Schaber said. She invited to

the meeting nonprofit Libbey High School Alumni Inc. (LHSA), members of the committee responsible for the last roundup event at Libbey and a group active with class reunions. The meeting at Jones Elementary School was meant to create a potential plan for Schaber to present to the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission and the TPS Board of Education cabinet. “I’m not here to tell you what to do,” Schaber emphasized. One of LHSA’s objectives has been finding a place in the community to showcase the trophies. The Toledo History Museum has indicated that it may have a 20-by-30-foot room available for Libbey memorabilia, said Warren Woodberry, community

activist. Schaber said she would take that idea to TPS. Larrie Baccus, president of LHSA, has also been in touch with The African American Legacy Project about housing the trophies, he said. Even though these items would be displayed at these potential locations indefinitely, TPS would retain ownership, Schaber said. Reuniting about 25 individual trophies with winners or their families was another major concern for the group. There are also eight large portraits that Schaber and the group wanted to see reunited with the subjects’ families. She asked the group for help in locating these families. One point of contention at the meeting was that an auction for items like the school’s lettering and sandstone medallions was taking place March 6. Although Schaber said an ad had run in The Blade, no one at the meeting was aware of the auction. Alum Janet Mohamed in particular was interested in the sandstone, as she is part of an effort to create a memorial from the medallions. When news of the auction caused a stir, Schaber said she would try her best to stop a few medallions from being auctioned. Schaber was able to secure three pallets of medallions and the letters L, H and S before the auction, she confirmed.

The meeting was not without other moments of anger. “I can’t bring my mom down Western Avenue. She probably would die over it,” said Mohamed, who comes from a “Libbey family.” “I’m kinda feeling like a piñata here,” Schaber confessed at one point. “I can’t answer for everything everybody does.” The group also discussed the Lt. Robert Craig plaque, commemorating the Congressional Medal of Honor honoree, and a plaque listing the names of 106 Libbey alums who gave their lives in World War II. Sue Terrill, activist and Libbey alum, said she had been in touch with Councilman D. Michael Collins about where to potentially place the items. Collins said the Craig plaque could go in the Veterans Administration medical facility, scheduled to open this fall on Detroit Avenue. He said One Government Center could be a potential home for the second plaque. “It would be very fitting to be in our Council chambers, since we no longer have the school,” he said. Woodberry also suggested getting a group together to better catalog the trophies. A list is available at www.site. toledolibbeyhsalumni.com/. “I liked your idea tremendously, Mr. Woodberry. This is not something I can do by myself,” Schaber said. Al-

WARREN WOODBERRY though the trophies are packed, she said a moving company she worked with would be willing to temporarily open the boxes. After Schaber presents the group’s ideas and worries to TPS at the upcoming board meeting, they are set to meet again and determine the next steps. The group will mostly operate from email as “I have no budget to do this,” Schaber said. Of the first meeting, Baccus said, “I’m happy everybody got a chance to weigh in … but we want to see results before we start praising.” ✯

Patti, also secretary of Parker’s Purpose, remembered her son going from table to table at McDonald’s telling people about it. “He’s a terrible teenager now and knows everything; he’s no different than any other teen,” she said with a laugh.

When football coach Todd Drusback chose one of his wife’s students as the ball boy for his team, he didn’t realize how many lives he would impact. Parker Inks, now 13, has multiple sclerosis, but that doesn’t mean he can’t help out on the field or off. His namesake nonprofit, Parker’s Purpose, gives up to $1,000 in grants to families with a child who has a life-altering illness or disability. “[Parker] doesn’t look at [multiple sclerosis] as an affliction, he looks at it as a positive,” Drusback said. Drusback, then coach of Fremont’s St. Joseph Central Catholic High School football team, gave Parker the position and never regretted it. Before long, Parker was instrumental to the team, giving players pep talks. In March 2008, however, Parker was hospitalized with respiratory problems around the same time his mother, Patti Inks, was undergoing cancer treatment. “His dad called me the next day and said Parker was struggling; ‘He’s not himself, he’s not motivated,’” Drusback said. Parker’s father told his son not to give up because he still had to fulfill his life’s purpose. Drusback, now coach at Rossford High School, went to visit Parker only to have a life-changing experience. Although his movement was limited because of medical tubes, Parker squeezed Drusback’s hand when he saw him. “It was one of those moments if you believe in divine intervention, it happened,” Drusback recalled. The coach was inspired to do more for the Inks family. He sent out an email chain “and you wouldn’t believe the checks and the different things that started coming in the mail from all over the country,” he said. Drusback also organized a spaghetti dinner and auction, serving 1,100 people. “Todd and his wife just really stepped up. It had a massive impact on us,” Patti said. “He cares for Parker as if he were his own son.” After spending a month in the hospital and crashing three times, Parker was released. However, the Drusbacks and the Inks decided their mission had only just begun. “Why should it end here? There’s so many families out there that need assistance,” Drusback said. He is president of the nonprofit. Since deciding to help other families, Parker’s Purpose has given $54,000, raised through fundraisers

and donations, to 100 families. The nonprofit helps children with all sorts of illnesses and disabilities, ranging from those with Down syndrome or autism to families with premature babies. “Our focus is really broad because we know there are a lot of disabilities out there,” Drusback said. The executive committee has quarterly meetings to decide which families get the grant money, with Northwest Ohio being the first priority. More people are applying, however, and the foundation would like to help, Drusback said. “Our applications are just really increasing; we need to keep up with the funding,” Drusback said, adding that none of the staff is paid at Parker’s Purpose. Every little bit helps a family with a sick child, Patti echoed. “When someone is going through medical struggles, especially when it’s your child, their focus is so much on their needs, but financial bur-

ommunities across the Midwest and South are still recovering from a string of violent storms that barreled across the region in late February and early March. The storms produced at least 70 tornadoes and left entire towns destroyed. Since the night of the first storm, Red Cross volunteers and workers have operated shelters to offer food, emotional support and relief supplies to the thousands of people displaced by the tornadoes. In all, the Red Cross has sheltered hundreds of people in 11 states. The Red Cross workers are people who trained in their free time so they can volunteer to set up shelters, either in their hometown or halfway across the country in the wake of a major disaster. At shelters across the affected region, families are doing their best to

piece their lives back together. Many lost their homes, many lost their entire town, and many lost much, much more. How do you bring comfort to families that have lost so much? If you are the American Red Cross, you make a promise — a promise to be there for the community whenever, wherever disaster strikes. You let the American people know that Red Cross Jason workers and volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide shelter, food, water, counseling and more to those who suddenly find their world turned upside down by a disaster. And if you are the Red Cross, you vow to never break that promise.

disaster volunteers give. What they bring home can be just as important. “When I started volunteering with the Red Cross following Hurricane Katrina, it really reinvigorated by faith in humanity,” said Kathy McVicker. Kathy has volunteered for the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the Red Cross for nearly seven years, and is one of the many disaster volunteers from Lucas County who has spent many months responding to large-scale disasters. “It’s all about people helping people. The Red Cross continues to enrich my life with a variety of reallife experiences and provides me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others,” she said. Kathy was one of the first volunteers to respond to the relief effort aft er an EF4 tornado struck Lake Township in 2010. It was an experience she, like so many in the area, remembers very well. “It was devastating,” she said. As a volunteer deployed to the relief effort, she began with water distribution and meeting the people directly affected by the storm. “You just want to lessen their hurt. To share the load and do anything to make the process a little easier.” Kathy said many people approached her that day to tell her that if it weren’t for the Red Cross, they wouldn’t know what to do. They told her that once they saw the Red Cross, they knew things would begin to get better. “You don’t realize how much the Red Cross is a symbol of help and hope until you are in these kinds of situations,” Kathy said. If someone would like to help people aff ected by disasters like tornadoes and fl oods, they can make a

The next day, volunteers Pearlia and Lawrence Kynard deployed as well. Terry is in the Louisville, Ky., area as a mental health case worker, helping people cope with what, for many, will be the hardest experience of their lives. COPSEY Lawrence and Pearlia are in the southern Ohio/northern Kentucky region as caseworkers, providing technical guidance and support to teams of volunteers working to meet the direct needs of clients in the affected area. For Terry, Lawrence and Pearlia, this was not their first time deploying to a major disaster. The Red Cross in Lucas County has a strong team of disaster volunteers that at a moment’s notice is ready to respond wherever disaster assistance is needed. Last year, volunteers responded to hundreds of house fi res and deployed across the country, from flooding in Northeastern states after Hurricane Irene to wildfires in the West and a number of tornado relief eff orts not unlike the one in which Terry, Lawrence and Pearlia are now taking part. Our dedicated volunteers give their time and effort to provide people hope. What they give is often inspiring and astonishingly selfless.

Pick a safe place Th e Red Cross has safety steps people can follow to protect members of their household. “Pick a safe place in your home or apartment building where household members and pets can gather during a tornado,” said Rick Bissell, PhD, MS, MA, member of the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council and chair of the Preparedness Sub-Council. “Use a basement, storm cellar or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows.” Other steps people should take: ✯ Watch for tornado warning signs such as dark, greenish clouds, large hail, a roaring noise, a cloud of debris or funnel clouds. Secure outside items such as lawn furniture or trash cans, which could be picked up by the wind and injure someone. ✯ If a tornado watch is issued, it means tornadoes are possible and people should be ready to act quickly. If a tornado warning is issued, it means a tornado has been sighted or indicated by radar and people should immediately go underground to a basement or storm cellar or to an interior room such as a bathroom or closet. ✯ If a tornado warning is issued and someone is outdoors, they should hurry to the basement of a nearby sturdy building. If they cannot get to a building, they should get in a vehicle, buckle in and drive to the closest sturdy shelter. If flying debris occurs, a person can pull over and stay in the car with the seat belt on, their head below the window, and cover their head with a blanket or their hands. If someone does not have a vehicle, they should fi nd ground lower than the surface of the roadway and cover their head with their hands. ✯ If someone is in a high-rise building, they should pick a place in the hallway in the center of the building. ✯ Jason Copsey is communications specialist for the Greater Toledo Chapter of the American Red Cross.

SEAN LYNOTT IS ONE OF ABOUT 35 PEOPLE WHO READ METERS FOR FIRSTENERGY’S TOLEDO EDISON.

Will your meter reader go the way of the milkman? By Caitlin McGlade TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

You probably don’t see them. You probably don’t hear them, either. Perhaps the only evidence of their presence is the sudden cacophony of dog barks shaking the neighborhood. But once a month — whether the air chills or stifles — meter readers stop by your house. Sean Lynott, who reads meters for FirstEnergy’s Toledo Edison, has been at it for nine years. He is one of about 35 employeeswho check 308,000 meters in the Toledo area. A typical day starts at 7:30 a.m. It’s the time to don a bright yellow jacket with silver reflectors. He and three other readers gather for their safety briefing meeting. Some days they talk about preventing slips, trips or falls. Today the talk covers the ultimate four-legged enemy: dogs. Meter reader Brent Throne recalls a dog busting through a screen door and chasing him down Nebraska Avenue. Bryan Wilber, another reader, tripped

over a rock and broke his wrist in an attempt to escape from one once. The meeting closes and the four are off to a full day of driving and parking. Walking and stopping. Entering numbers into their hand-held computers. Today the crew canvasses the suburban neighborhoods sprawling away from I-280 in Northwood. Dog attacks are few and far between here, so the biggest hurdle is the frosty air. Or, for Lynott, the occasional grill that blocks the view of the meter. Or the shrub that shrouds the meter’s numbers. Or a wooden gate with corroded hinges, resisting any kind of movement. And don’t get him started on bungee cords that hold gates together. By 8:40 a.m., Lynott is just miles from headquarters. On a 21 day cycle, he has basically memorized the neighborhoods he canvasses. It’s not that he has to; the computer device he carries tells him where the meter is located on each house and announces whether there is a dog on the premises. ■ METERS CONTINUES ON A18

Wills vs. trusts

ne of the most common questions regarding setting up an estate plan is, “Do I need a will or a trust?” Many have heard about their friends setting up living trusts and wonder if that is what they need. A will is instructions by a person who names one or more people to handle and distribute property and assets at death. With a will you get the opportunity to say where you want all your stuff to go. If you do not, each state has a formula to decide for you. Wouldn’t you rather decide? Also, if you have minor children, you can decide who you want to care for them. Obviously, this is a very important decision Mark that may affect your Nolan child’s life forever. You should consider things like their appointed guardian’s proximity, child rearing philosophy, religious views and their financial ability to provide. Let’s clear up a few common misconceptions about wills. 1. An executor of a will is not a power of attorney. An executor has no power until after you die. They cannot handle financial affairs for you now. That is why you may need a durable power of attorney. 2. A will does not avoid probate. It is generally a one-way ticket to probate. Probate is not necessarily bad. It is a court supervised process to get your assets where you want them to go as stated in your will. 3. A will does not control where everything goes. Accounts like IRAs 401(k)s, life insurance, annuities or any other type of retirement accounts are generally controlled by beneficiary designations. If you are making your will, this would be a good time to make sure all beneficiary designations are up to date. If they are not, your money could end up somewhere you did not intend (Google the horror story “the pension pickle”). How about a trust? A trust is generally a “will replacement.” It has a plan of distribution just like a will. One of the biggest reasons a trust may be used in place of a traditional will is probate

avoidance. There are many other reasons for trusts, but this seems to be the most common. The public has objected to the cost of probate and how long it takes to complete. Attorneys are usually paid a higher level of compensation for probate assets as opposed to nonprobate assets. As a result, many have turned to setting up a trust to bypass the process. This happens by re-titling certain assets now, so that later there is no probate required. A trust is usually much more expensive than a will, but has the potential to save a substantial amount of money when the estate is settled. Let us address some common misconceptions. 1. They are all CLAIR the same. No they BAKER are not. There are many different kinds of trusts for many different purposes. You could almost compare it to buying a car. Some have the basic equipment, while others have more features and benefits. 2. If you set up a trust you automatically avoid probate. No, no, no. You have to “fund” the trust to avoid probate. This is the biggest mistake people make when it comes to a living trust. Not getting assets titled in the trust. 3. If I have a trust I don’t need a will. There is a special will that goes with the trust called the “pour-over” will. This “pours” any property you still own when you die into your trust (you still may have a probate, though). A will or a trust? The best way to answer this question is to visit a qualified estate planner. As I heard a local respected estate-planning attorney say early in my career, “always a will, sometimes a trust.” ✯ For more information about The Retirement Guys, visit www.retirementguysradio.com.

or the next couple of columns I will cover what affects the price of precious metals and how not to invest in precious metals. Today, I will start with some of the basics. Hardly a day goes by where I am not asked about buying gold and silver. My answer is usually the same, I think everyone should own some precious metals both in physical form and in investment form. I make a distinction between physical ownership and investment ownership for a couple of reasons. Today, if a person wants to own physical gold or silver it is usually because he or she worries the economy might tank and leave fiat money worthless. By owning gold and silver, they would at least have something of value to trade for food or other

Precious metals necessities. In this sense the ownership is not considered an investment, but rather insurance against a really bad thing. When buying physical metals it is important to know what you are buying and how much it is costing you compared to the market or spot price. Most outlets that sell precious metals will charge a premium over the cost of spot. I have seen any- Gary L. where from 1 percent over spot to as high as 20 percent over spot. Also, some states will collect a sales tax on the transaction, adding an additional 5 percent or so to the cost. Additionally, many of these

dealers will also discount the price from spot for buying back your holdings. For example, you may buy an ounce of gold (currently trading around $1,700 and pay an additional $49 to $150 premium. When you want to sell it to the same or a similar dealer they will give you $1,700 (assuming that the price of an ounce is still the same) less $49 to $150. RATHBUN This means that the price of gold must increase significantly before you earn a profit. Sometimes there is a storage fee if you decide to store your metals in a commercial facility, but most of us just use our own safe at home. (By

the way, never use a safety deposit box for storage. I will cover this in a future column.) From an investment standpoint, I usually recommend investing in an Exchange Trade Fund (ETF) to invest in precious metals. There are numerous reasons for using ETFs for this type of investment so I will just touch on a couple. First of all, a metal ETF will very closely correlate with the underlying commodity without a large premium. There is some cost to an ETF but the internal expense is very small (usually 40 or 50 basis points) and has little impact on the performance of the fund. Secondly and maybe most importantly, by using an ETF we are able to hedge our position and protect the

downside. There are several ways of hedging the position, two of the most widely used are trailing stop limits and option collars. Both of these techniques usually minimize the downside risk of the holding. Thirdly, it is easy to short our position or invest from the thought of a metal going down. It is easy to short a precious metal on the futures market but there is a whole list of other conditions one must meet to use this venue. Shorting an ETF is easy and it can be done so that it carries very limited risk. Shorting is a very misunderstood investment technique and is usually associated with “evil speculators” (talked about last time) but essentially every transaction in the investment world contains a person going long and another person going short. No matter what you sell, whether it be gold, an acre of ground or a bushel of corn, you are speculating that you can do something more with the cash than the asset. Investments work the same way. Finally, there are advisers and pundits who will make the case that a precious metal ETF does not really have the physical metal in a vault somewhere backing up the shares. I have looked into this very carefully and feel very confident that the investments we use are properly backed and secured. Next time, I will talk about the wrong way to invest in precious metals. ✯ Gary L. Rathbun is the president and CEO of Private Wealth Consultants, LTD.

ated specifically for this initiative. “We want to showcase the Toledo region as the ‘New Manufacturing Economy’ to the entire world,” said Wendy Gramza, executive vice president of the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and a member of the branding council. The region is GRAMZA taking its place at the forefront of this new economy — described as a new industrial revolution that incorporates software develop-

ment, open source product development and other imaginative new ways of doing business — because it has manufacturing in its DNA, according to the council. The Northwest Ohio Brand Council was formed in 2009 as a group of 12 public and private organizations wanting to create a set of tools and messages that would promote the Toledo Region as a brand. Its mission is to raise awareness and preference for the region in support of its economic development, education, tourism and quality-of-life goals. The council began the third phase of its branding initiative with the introduction of its newly created

website, www.toledoregion.com. The region’s story and assets were determined in the initial phase and that story was brought to life in the second phase, Gramza said. “It’s the ultimate example of organizations coming together to get the job done. It’s all about the product and not the effort,” Gramza said. Gramza said the council is looking for the business community’s input on content from all areas of the 12-county region established by the State of Ohio for economic development. “Anyone who sees themselves as part of the story is welcome to become a part of it,” Gramza said. “We

want all companies and organizations to use that theme in promoting their business around the world.” The website provides a platform, content information and tools to assist in economic development efforts of the region. The goal for the site is to attract visitors, new residents, site selectors, conferences and conventions from industries related to the “New Manufacturing Economy.” “We want the website to be the first source for people to go to for information about the Toledo region,” Gramza said. Andi Roman was named brand manager for the council in December. “It’s the true story about what the region is all about and now we have the platform to tell our story,” Roman said. “It’s a website for everyone to use to show people about the Toledo region.” As brand manager, Roman will manage the communications and marketing for the Toledo Region brand with a strategic approach to furthering the mission of the council. Roman, a Toledo native and a producer and news director for WTOL-11 with more than 20 years of experience in broadcast media, community and public relations, is based out of the Toledo Mud Hens offices in Downtown Toledo. “Her knowledge, leadership and news background will prove to be invaluable assets, but her commitment and desire to truly make a difference in this community made her a perfect fit for the Toledo region brand,” said Joe Napoli, president and general manager of the Toledo Mud Hens, and chairman of the Northwest Ohio Brand Council. The brand council is supported by organizations including the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, Destination Toledo, Toledo Community Foundation, Greater Toledo Urban League, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, Regional Growth Partnership and Downtown Toledo Improvement District. The City of Toledo, Lucas and Wood counties, Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo are also represented on the brand council. The branding initiative is supported with funds from public and private organizations, and the State of Ohio. The Chamber Foundation acts at the fiscal agent for the brand council.

IN CONCERT

MIRANDA LAMBERT WILL PLAY A 7:30 P.M. SHOW MARCH 22 AT THE HUNTINGTON CENTER. ONLY SINGLE SEATS REMAIN. CHRIS YOUNG AND JERROD NIEMANN WILL OPEN.

Miranda Lambert to blaze into town with On Fire Tour By Vicki L. Kroll TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER vkroll@toledofreepress.com

“Revolution” spun Miranda Lambert into the superstar stratosphere. She won Album of the Year and was named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music, and she picked up a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance

for “The House That Built Me.” How do you follow that? Lambert packed a double-barrel blast, partnering with friends Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley for Pistol Annies’ 2011 debut, “Hell on Heels,” and fired another round with the solo album “Four the Record” in November. “Working with Pistol Annies kept me excited about songwriting right after ‘Revolution’ was released [in 2009],” Lambert wrote in an email interview. “A lot of the time, artists will be

burned out on writing once they finish an album, but I was so inspired by my friends Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe and our collaborations that I just couldn’t stop! “I think their creativity and the idea to put out a trio project with ‘Hell on Heels’ definitely inspired me to write more and find great material for ‘Four the Record.’ I did feel pressure with my fourth album because everyone was wondering how it could possibly top the success of my last one. ■ LAMBERT CONTINUES ON A22


ARTS LIFE

A22 ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS ■ LAMBERT CONTINUED FROM A21 “ ‘Revolution’ was a big milestone for my career, and I am so grateful for how the fans and my peers in the industry embraced it. So with ‘Four the Record,’ I decided that there was really only one way I could make sure I loved it as much as ‘Revolution,’ and that was by letting the music lead me.” She co-wrote the disc’s first single, “Baggage Claim,” a brash, no-nonsense number about being tired of toting around a man’s ego: “If it ain’t obvious what has set me off today/ Behind every woman scorned is a man who made her that way.” And there’s “Fastest Girl in Town,” a scorcher she and Presley penned with a classic line: “I’ll be wearing nothing but a tattoo and a smile.” Lambert seems to be beaming since wedding country superstar Blake Shelton last year. “Four the Record” features “Oklahoma Sky,” a track written for the bride. “Allison Moorer is one of those amazing songwriters who inspired me to start writing; I am a huge fan of hers,” Lambert, who grew up in Lindale, Texas, wrote. “I hoped to write with her for ‘Four the Record,’ but we didn’t get the chance due to our schedules being so busy, so she wrote this song for me about my new home in Oklahoma.” With tours and Shelton’s gig on NBC’s “The Voice,” love is all about logistics. “Blake and I make sure to get

in real couple time at our farm in Oklahoma. Our relationship is really just about scheduling, and so far we have done a good job,” Lambert wrote. “At home, we’re just like any other normal couple; he’s out on the tractor and I’m playing with my dogs and planting flowers.” How do the singer-songwriters spend a day off ? “We love being outside, so I like going fishing, four-wheeling, taking care of our farm animals — really anything to be out enjoying our land,” she wrote. And everyone wants to know if a family is in their future. “We have seven dogs, so we’re just taking care of them for now. They’re all rescues and all crazy-looking. Every animal is named after a song or an artist — Delta, Delilah, Cher, Jessi, Waylon, Virginia Bluebell and Black Betty,” Lambert wrote. “We have so much going on right now, we’re gonna wait a while. The dogs are really good birth control!” A couple of furry friends even travel on the tour bus. “I usually bring two of my smaller rescue dogs, Delta Dawn and Cher, out on the road with me,” she wrote. “They are great company and help me feel like I’ve got a little piece of home with me wherever I go!” Lambert will play a 7:30 p.m. show March 22 at the Huntington Center. Only single seats ranging from $27.75 to $51.75 remain. Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann will open.

The feisty 28-year-old who gained fame as a 2003 finalist on “Nashville Star” has a reputation for kick-ass hits: “Gunpowder & Lead,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “White Liar,” “Only Prettier,” “Kerosene.” “I make music that I love, and maybe that’s not always music that speaks to everyone, but I feel blessed when my music does inspire fans. I’ve had women tell

MARCH 11, 2012 me that my songs gave them the courage to leave abusive relationships, and that is the highest compliment I can get as a songwriter,” Lambert wrote. “Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn are two of my favorite songwriters, and I try to follow their noholds-barred approach to writing. Their songs have stood the test of time, and I hope mine will do the

same,” she added. Meanwhile, the spitfire loaded with talent continues to blow fans away. “I am just trying to take my career one day at a time and really appreciate all the good things that are happening as they come my way,” she wrote. “I am so blessed to get to do what I love for a living, and I hope to continue making music I love for a long time.” ✯

My name is Wendy, and I’m from a normal home. I was in the marching band and in school plays at Anthony Wayne. I didn’t get into trouble but felt like an outsider. Felt insane at times. As an adult, depression & anxiety were driving forces, and living with domestic violence didn’t help. I used alcohol and Oxycontin to cope. I waitressed, took care of my kids & kept a clean house. But life was a blur of addiction, fear and trouble with the law. Finally, I walked away from the drugs and abuse. Today I’ve been sober & healthy for over three years. It turns out depression and anxiety are highly treatable, and my son is thrilled to have his Mom back. This is what recovery looks like.

FAMILY PRACTICE

Spring Break 2012 I

sometimes wonder if teachers have any idea what they start when they send home certain assignments. For example, we recently encountered a bit of homework-induced family upheaval from a seemingly innocuous exercise in using future tense. The homework’s prompt was simple enough at first: “Write a paragraph telling what you and your family will be doing over Spring Break this year. Be sure to make your verbs future tense.” Yet, what is simple for some turns into a rather touchy situation for others. My family would be the “others” in this scenario. Since my husband, Mike, and I hadn’t mentioned anything, our son, Jack, immediately inquired about our spring break plans so that he could bang out his paragraph and get on with more important things like playing video games and arguing with his sister. My guess is that he was secretly excited to hear what fantastic, well-planned adventures we had in store for him during his academic

hiatus. However, I’m quite certain flat-panel LCD, let me at least inmy confused and nervous stam- troduce our current TV. The front panel broke off when mering quickly doused we hauled it to a reshis hopes of a surprise taurant for my mom’s Disney-type vacation. 60th surprise birthday “Hmm, let me party, which was seven go talk to Daddy for years ago.

TV with it. As much as I usually advocate Before judgement is passed on the legitimacy of our idea to trade for the appreciation and preservafamily togetherness for a 40-inch tion of an object with history, I can’t

help but want to put the ol’ girl, aka our 27-inch Panasonic, out of our misery. At this point, her remote is long gone and she is missing three of her six on-set buttons, the only pieces we had left of her original control system. We can still flip through the TV/Video options and turn the channel, but it now takes a pencil, some surgical skills and a bit of patience. I have to be honest, the usea-pencil process has grown tiresome. Furthermore in our defense, had we known that televisions would become significantly thinner and produce a superior picture just a couple of years after we bought ours, we wouldn’t have spent so much time making sure we picked out the most reliable model. Still, we accepted that we were stuck with our oncestellar choice. Until now. After some very quick discussion, Mike and I decided to reveal our whole mini-vacation-turned-TVstaycation plan to Jack. His reaction was mixed. While he was excited at

the prospect of a new TV, he was disappointed that it still didn’t come with ESPN. While he was glad to finally have something to write about, he rightfully declared, despite my urging, that he would not be explaining what we were originally going to do as part of his paragraph. In his words, “that would be the past tense.” In attempting to keep with his future tense instructions, he instead went with: “My family and I will be getting a flat-screen TV on Spring Break. I will be watching a lot of TV shows when we get the TV. I will also be having a great time when I get my new TV.” Please tell the award committee to send our “Parents of the Year” prize to our home next month, as we will no doubt be there “watching a lot of TV shows.” ✯ Shannon Szyperski and her husband, Michael, are raising three children in Sylvania.
