Political business

n the wake of business owner Sandy Spang’s resounding success in running for Toledo City Council, more dollars-and-sense-oriented people are stepping into local politics. Marcia Helman, Lickity Split ice cream store owner, and Joe Celusta, a business owner for several years and most recently senior manager of TrueNorth, are among those planning to run for the District 2 City Council seat vacated by Mayor D. Michael Collins. Celusta, a Republican, told Toledo Free Press Managing Editor Sarah Ottney the future of the Southwyck property is a key issue for District 2 and Toledo. “Southwyck is vital to the city just for tax revenue,” Celusta said. “It’s is very important to us because that’s where our future income is to support to the rest of the district. If we develop it, we get tax revenue out of the Southwyck area and that’s what fixes the streets.” Helman also said revitalizing Southwyck needs to be a major focus. “We need to set up a master plan, not let just anybody go in there and build anything,” Thomas F. Pounds Helman told Ottney. “It’s going to be a slow revitalization, but I would work with anybody who wanted to work on that.” Helman is running as an independent with the support of Realtor Rob Ludeman, who so skillfully guided Spang through her first election. The District 2 seat is being temporarily filled by Democrat Matt Cherry, a Sheet Metal Workers Local 33 worker, who was appointed in January. Cherry told Ottney he plans to focus on economic development, neighborhood safety and the amenities that keep young families in Toledo. “More jobs fix a lot of problems in a lot of aspects,” Cherry said. It is encouraging to see more business owners invest in the leadership issues of our region. I suspect the dominant voice in the election will belong to Toledo Public Schools Board of Education member Bob Vasquez. Vasquez, a Democrat and licensed social worker, told Ottney the skills and experience he developed on the school board, including reading multimillion-dollar budgets and making tough financial decisions, will help him on City Council. “You don’t get into leadership positions just to go along,” Vasquez told Ottney. “You either lead or you go along, one or the other, and I feel that I lead.” Another universal concern was over ongoing fund transfers from the capital improvement budget to the general budget. “I haven’t heard anyone talk about plans to wean ourselves off that in the future,” Vasquez said. “And that does affect basic services, especially streets, because that’s capital improvement.” I have long known and trusted Vasquez, but I remain open to the messages and ideas the other candidates will present. In any event, I am pleased to see this continuing trend of more business owners joining the political scene. The insight, responsibility and financial acumen business people can bring to the conversation are a crucial contributions to the future of our region. O Thomas F.

Opinion

n MILLER CONTINUED FROM 3

The effect of all this was a degree of discomfort and pain I never came close to experiencing from the bariatric sleeve surgery. But I was just hours after the surgery and while my confidence was shaken, I was sure I would bounce back with quickness. We had prepared for a week or two of my living on the first floor, sleeping upright in a recliner (no lying flat or stretching the incision) and I had everything from books to my phone charger to the TV remote at my side, arranged to fight the boredom of inactivity.

I bested that by two weeks and 30 percent, so I expected similar poster boy results from the tuck.

The commitment

The procedure went as planned and I was home less than 10 hours after I left. So far, so good. Except for the fact that I felt miserable. As I surveyed the extent of the procedure, all the warnings and cautions swirled in my head. The centerpiece was a 27-inch incision under my belt line from hip to hip, expertly stitched together but looking like I In sickness and in health was Robert Shaw at the end of “Jaws,” Those first 10 post-surgery days perforated in a perfect semicircle by brought slow progress, not much the maw of a great white shark.

As the days passed, the depression deepened. For one thing, I hurt. For another, I was blue because the daily exercise that had filled an hour or two of nearly every day of my life for the past 18 months had been reduced to three 10-minute slow walks around the first floor. I could feel my hard work on my leg and arm muscles melting away with the inactivity. But I was also haunted by buyer’s remorse, uncertain that this surgery — unlike the bariatric sleeve surgery, which paid such great dividends — was worth the obstacle course of pains and problems. The swelling still distorted my abdomen, my new navel looked like a foreign element and the damned JP Drains freaked me out, protruding as they did from my body like Lovecraftian tentacles. Worst of all, I hated being cooped up, largely confined to one room on one floor. I began to resent my cage and wished to be anywhere else.

the surgery. I woke up feeling fine but by 8 a.m. felt the unmistakable chills of a fever. There are a few danger signs of post-surgical complications and fever is a big red flag. I was at 102 degrees with no break from Tylenol when I called the clinic and spoke to a clinician who promised a nurse would call me back right away. She did, 10 minutes later, with an urgent message for me to get to the clinic as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I passed out in my chair and missed the call. It was three hours later when I woke up, listened to the message and called my wife to tell her we needed to go. At this point the fever was 103 and blinding in its intensity. At the clinic, the doctor inspected my incision and saw no outward sign of infection, but on the advice of my wife looked at the new colors of swirling debris in the JP drains and made immediate arrangements for me to be admitted to the University of Michigan Medical Center emergency room. When I checked in, the fever was at 104.2 degrees and I have vague memories of feeling like I was swimming through hot Jell-O. The nurse took my blood pressure, frowned, checked it again, then wheeled over a manual unit and took it a third time. All three measurements were the same: 74 over 48. In contrast, my heart was pounding, trying to compensate by working wildly at more than 120 beats per minute. Sepsis is caused by the body’s immune response to infection. As the body fights to the point of septic shock, organs begin shutting down. The ER team was frantically working around me but I was only dimly aware of what was happening and had no sense of danger. My wife, who works in health care, knew exactly what was going on and was holding my hand and talking to me softly as I drifted in and out of consciousness. I had been pumped with three IV bags but the fever held, my blood pressure continued to crash and I was unable to urinate despite

being pumped full of liters of saline. It would have been a quiet and unremarkable death, but I was blissfully, ignorantly unaware of the danger. I did not experience any bright lights, visions of dead relatives or see my life pass before my eyes. Jesus apparently had more important visits to make and his face did not appear before my eyes. I kinda sorta remember the hum of the CT scan tunnel and the stream of white-coated visitors, but most of what I know comes from my wife’s reluctant descriptions. The next thing I knew, it was a day later and I was in a hospital room, IV lines in both arms, legs encased in clot-fighting pressure cuffs and feeling a dreamy, foggy mindset courtesy of Norco, the new Vicodin. I spent the first few waking hours absorbing the news and loudly complaining about being in a hospital bed. That first-floor living room suddenly seemed like a paradise to me. My complaints were tempered when I heard why my roommate was hospitalized. Suffice it to say, his situation was a million times worse than mine. It’s not my place to share his story here, but his heroic determination in the face of medical disaster taught me great perspective and humility. The doctors did not find the specific source of the infection and kept me hospitalized two more days to monitor my progress. I believe that in six months, when all is healed and in place, the choice to have the abdominoplasty will be a good one for my health and future. I will soon be back to walking and in my normal routines. I won’t think of a tummy tuck infection as a neardeath experience. It would have been a quiet and unremarkable death, but I haven’t worked this hard to do anything but go kicking and screaming. O

One of Toledo’s most iconic landmarks is set to go out of commission for the next 19 months, leaving many area residents and business owners apprehensive yet resigned. The Anthony Wayne Bridge — more commonly called the High Level Bridge — will close to both vehicles and pedestrians at 7 a.m. March 17 and remain closed until September 2015 as it undergoes repairs. It’s the first longterm closure of this duration in the bridge’s eight-decade history, said Theresa Pollick, public information officer with Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), District 2. Every day, more than 26,000 vehicles cross the 3,215-foot-long span. The structure, which connects Downtown with the city’s East Side over the Maumee River, is the last cable suspension bridge on the state highway system in Ohio, Pollick said. “Obviously it has historical significance to Toledo,” Pollick said. “When

you think of a bridge in Toledo you think of the Anthony Wayne Bridge.” Compounding the traffic issues will be the Craig Memorial Bridge, which closed Jan. 15 for $11 million in painting and repairs, and, hampered by winter weather delays, will not reopen until March 27. “We did our best to avoid it, but there will be an overlap,” Pollick said. “We’re working around the clock and squeezing about a third of the contract into a few months. There is a lot of work still to be done there.” Henry Loughner, a tow truck driver with Boyz Automotive & Towing on East Broadway Street, said he drives across the bridge regularly. “It’s going to make it a lot harder to get around to this side,” Loughner said. “And the traffic’s going to be crazy because the Craig Street Bridge is already closed out. It’s going to be a little hectic.” Tim Williams, owner of Big Apple Deli on Woodville Road said he’s hoping for the best. “You’re obviously nervous about it, but you can’t be upset about something that is progress and is going to

improve the condition of the bridge,” he said. “It will make it more difficult for our customers, but our customers are a tough bunch. They come from all over and will get here come heck or high water — we hope anyway.” Tony Whitaker, a student at Owens Community College, lives on the South End but walks the bridge two to three times a week to visit friends and his girlfriend on the East Side. He said the closure will cut his visits down to once a week unless he can find a ride. For the past two years, Nicole Strong of South Toledo has been meeting a fellow Fremont Middle School teacher in Northwood to carpool to work. She will discontinue that when the bridge closes. “It will take way too long to get to her place from mine so we will both just have to drive separate from now on,” Strong said. “I’ve been trying to find another teacher, but there’s nobody I know well enough or feel comfortable enough with carpooling so I’m on my own.” Jeno DeLuca, owner of Complete Auto Repair on South Summit Street, said he’s afraid he’ll have to switch to a more expensive parts dealer to avoid the

trip across the river to his preferred shop. However, he understands the closures. “Yes, it will affect business,” DeLuca said. “It needs repaired, though. Have you seen it? It’s falling apart.” Beatriz Garduno, owner of La Cachanilla Mexican Restaurant on South Summit Street near the foot of the bridge, said she’s hoping the closure will actually increase business. “Last week, we had some construc-

tion people working on the bridge who came in and had lunch here,” Garduno said. “I’m hoping it won’t hurt us and might help us a little bit. It’s been a hard winter.” Danielle Foltz, a cashier at the Valero gas station on the Downtown side of the bridge, said she’s hoping loyal customers and a popular 24-hour Subway will keep the station busy. n BRIDGE CONTINUES ON 7

n BRIDGE CONTINUED FROM 6 “A lot of customers ask about that. We don’t know yet,” Foltz said. E.S. Wagner Company of Oregon will be the main contractor for the $28.7 million project. The entire concrete bridge deck will be replaced along with sidewalks, railings, street lighting, fencing and expansion joints. The lighting now on the outside sidewalks will move to the median. Substructure work will include repairs to the existing concrete piers and abutments and the addition of two new piers. The bridge will also undergo structural steel repairs to the towers and superstructure. The most noticeable difference will be the replacement of two steel trusses on each end of the suspension spans with steel girders and the addition of two concrete support pillars, one on each side of the bridge, said Mel Williams, bridge division estimator project manager with E.S. Wagner. There are 480 locations on the bridge that need steel repaired, including on the towers, the suspension span and the approach span, Williams said. “A lot of the prep work has been fabricating the repair steel for the superstructure of the bridge,” Williams said. “We have to go in and take out the deteriorated steel, have new steel fabricated and go back and replace the deteriorated.” Damaged portions of the concrete

substructure will also be repaired. On March 17, workers will begin about two weeks of preliminary work to prepare, Williams said. The next step will be to start taking the deck off the suspension span. A crew of 50-75 workers will be working on the bridge at any given time, he said. “It’s a very aggressive schedule to get the amount of work done that has to be done in that time frame,” Williams said. “We’ll work multiple crews and maybe even multiple shifts.” The Anthony Wayne Bridge was built from 1929-31 for about $3 million. In 1960-61, the bridge underwent an extensive rehabilitation, including a new deck, tower lighting upgrades and painting. It was repainted in the 1980s. Another major rehabilitation came in 1996-97, including a concrete deck overlay, suspender rope replacement, expansion joint replacement and painting, Pollick said. Consultants from several companies spent three years, from 2009-12, inspecting the bridge’s structure and cables to determine what repairs were needed. Cables were tested to detect any breaks and the bridge was shut down for a day to take measurements without the weight of traffic. Starting this fall, safety platforms were installed beneath the bridge.

Community

A Toledo tradition since 2005 “We’ve prepared for this one for a long time,” Pollick said. “We spent a long time dedicated to investigating what needed to be done with the bridge because of its age. “We wanted to keep its historical integrity and do as much preservation work as possible,” she said. “But we had to make these changes to ensure the bridge’s span for the next 50 years.” Darrel Hafner, owner of Hafner’s Sheet Metal & Supply on South Summit Street, said the bridge is “vital” to the area and it will be interesting to see how things go. “I would imagine it’s going to be a pain, but I also understand the need and there’s not much you can do about it,” Hafner said. “I’ve been trying to figure it out, but I think I’m better off just adding some gas to the tank and doing my thing. It’s going to be a little bit cumbersome, but I think we can get around it. “I have about six commercial roofing contractors and 10 residential heating contractors that might have to go out of their way a little bit to get here, but we provide them pretty good service so I’m sure they’ll do it no matter where we’re at. You just gotta work around it and do what you gotta do.” Oscar Ponce, who owns San Marcos Mexican grocery and restaurant near the bridge, said he’s hoping he won’t lose business when it’s not as

convenient for people to get there. “We are [worried], of course we are,” Ponce said. “We know it’s going to affect our customers, but there’s nothing we can do. People come here because they love our food so hopefully nothing changes. We depend on our customers so I hope everything goes fine.” Oliver House General Manager Neal Kovacik and Jamie Ondrus of True Value Ondrus Hardware on Oak Street both said there were enough other bridges that they didn’t foresee losing business. Work is scheduled to be completed by December 2015, but lane restrictions will also be put in place in spring 2016 for painting. Councilman Mike Craig of District 3 said such closures are just part of the price of living in a city with a river running through it. “I know there are businesses with concerns,” Craig said. “But you know what the alternative is? Let it go and then close the bridge permanently. ODOT is doing what they have to do to preserve the bridge.” ODOT’s official eight-mile detour is across the I-75 bridge, but Craig said he’s not so sure people are going to stick to that route. “Nobody who knows their way around the city is going to take that detour,” Craig said. “I would say probably

7

80 to 90 percent of traffic is going to detour to the MLK Bridge and that’s going to put a lot of pressure on Main Street.” Jodi Gross, community builder at East Toledo Family Center, said her biggest concern is traffic cutting across through the neighborhoods and down residential streets. TARTA has four bus routes that service East Toledo but TARTA actually rerouted its buses over the MLK Bridge in June 2012 in anticipation of this bridge closure as well as Hollywood Casino Toledo opening, said Steve Atkinson, director of marketing for TARTA. Sgt. Joe Heffernan, public information officer with Toledo Police Department (TPD), said he expects the first 10 days to be the worst because the Craig Bridge will still be closed and because it takes time to adjust to new routes. TPD will work with traffic engineers on the timing and cycling of lights near the intersection of Front and Main streets in anticipation of heavier traffic. Officers will also be enforcing weight limits for commercial traffic. “I would just ask for patience,” Heffernan said. “This will work out. People will figure it out as time goes on. It will certainly be an inconvenience in the beginning, but keep your eye on the prize, which is a new refurbished bridge that will serve us for the next 50 years. It will be worth it in the long run.” ✯

If something tragic would happen in the future, this Instagram creation would be the No. 1 warning sign. This is not a typical case of bullying because Kaylee is beautifully unique. She is not a normal healthy child, but at the same time she’s a typical fourth-grade girl. She loves Taylor Swift, although she’s not a fan of One Direction — but that just proves she has good taste. The thing that makes her tragically different is her being born with progeria, and the effects it has on her little body. It should be known that Kaylee is very important to Northwest Ohio and especially to me. Her family has championed fundraising for research and is the perfect example of families working to give back.

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

Thousands of us do it every day: We click a button and share a post on social media. We think it’s harmless, but those shares often spread misinformation. That’s why Toledo resident Gina Fielding is asking people to “Verify Before You Share a Lie.” Her website conducts background research on people to verify whether they are really a sex offender, wanted by police or missing, as these reports are common on social media. Her research is used to help people determine whether they should share the information on Facebook, Twitter or other social media. “People want to help and want to get this bad guy off the streets,” said Fielding, a social media expert. “I call them Internet warriors. They hit that share button thinking they’re doing a good thing and that makes sense. However, with everything positive, there is a negative, and that is misinformation spreads as good information.” About 35,000 people thought they were doing a good thing when they shared bad information about 23-year-

old Toledo resident Chad Lesko last year. Lesko’s ex-girlfriend created a fake Facebook account and posted lies about him, saying he was wanted by the Toledo Police Department for raping four children, one his own son. The post went viral and soon Lesko was being harassed and nearly assaulted by strangers in a park. He received death threats and began having anxiety attacks that put him in the hospital several times. “I see a lot of misinformation and it’s one of my pet peeves,” Fielding said. “It destroyed his life for months. He volunteers at a church every month handing out food to families. Within five minutes the police showed up and had him on the ground in front of the people he volunteers for. He’s humiliated and [the police] wasted valuable time. “Here’s this kid whose life has been turned upside down and he doesn’t know how to handle it,” Fielding said. “He was devastated. ... Kids are slitting their wrists over this kind of thing. They feel like their life is over.” After witnessing Lesko’s case, Fielding and her friend Cerise Claussen got together and came up with the name Verify Before You Share a Lie. Claussen was also deeply disturbed

by Lesko’s story and is pleased they can do something positive to combat negative misinformation about innocent people. “I could not stand seeing that kid being judged … when he really didn’t do what he was accused of,” Claussen said. “Everybody judged wrongly and that gets me. ... Occasionally, he still has problems with it.” Fielding’s and Claussen’s efforts grew into a full-fledged “misinformation-fighting operation.” Not everyone has the time or the access of a journalist to check out whether information is good or bad, Fielding said. That’s why she spends her own time, without financial compensation, checking with police departments, court records and missing persons’ organizations. Fielding recently worked to verify a submission about a Blade article that reported a rapist at Franklin Park Mall. Turns out the article was from 2003 and police had caught the suspect days after the incident, Fielding said. “People were sharing it and going ‘This is awful.,” Fielding said. “People were on the lookout and police were getting calls. It’s from 2003. It’s as simple as looking at the date. n VERIFY CONTINUES ON 11

n VERIFY CONTINUED FROM 10 “They’ve already caught [the suspect] within days. It’s wasting police time. This is what happens [with] Internet warriors. They want to help. I think their hearts are in the right place.” When a situation has been resolved it will be posted to her website and Facebook page with a “RESOLVED” stamp on it. If the infor-

mation is verified, it will be stamped with “VERIFIED” for true or listed as “DEBUNKED” if false. If Fielding could not verify whether the information was true or false, she will advise her client to use caution when sharing. “We will do all the work and you will be able to check back to the site within minutes to hours to see if the post is true or not,” Fielding said.

Community 11

A Toledo tradition since 2005 “Then you can be comfortable in your sharing and not take part in potentially ruining someone’s life.” Fielding said it’s difficult to know how prevalent misinformation is on social media because there is so much information out there in so many different forms. One of the biggest issues she sees is outdated information. For example, two girls from Wood County

were recently reported missing but were found within days. People continued to share the story even after it was resolved. “I don’t know why it happens or how it happens, but things resurface a lot,” she said. “There’s a picture going on for a year now. It’s an old lady standing with a poster board. She’s looking for her son. It gives her name and her email address. He was found last July and he just moved back in with his mother and they continue to get emails. He’s flustered because his picture keeps circulating. People think it’s just recent and they share it.” Police departments are grateful for Fielding’s efforts, she said. While testing the logistics of her system at the Chicago Police Department, Fielding said she explained what she was doing to officers there and they said “Thank you.” “I said, ‘You probably waste a lot of time on these calls’ and they said ‘You have no idea,’” Fielding said.

A U C T I O N

Fielding has been working on the website since April. “It’s not as easy as a Google search,” she said. “What will set our website apart is the accuracy. Our information has to be accurate. It has to be 100 percent sure. There’s no room for mistakes. Our credibility is our name. That’s why we use only credible sources. I check my sources and my sources’ sources.” Sharing is important and helpful, she said, but needs to be done in a responsible manner. If misinformation can be stopped, “We should stop it,” she said. “We have a very powerful tool at our fingertips: social media,” Fielding said. “But with great power comes great responsibility. If you’re not careful you can inadvertently hurt people or waste time. “We’re getting people to rethink before they click that button.” For more information, visit verifybeforeyousharealie.com. ✯

A Toledo tradition since 2005

By Dave Willinger

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

It is said that if you stand in New York’s Times Square long enough you will meet everyone you have ever known. It could also be said that if you sit in a casino poker room long enough, you will see just about everything there is to see. Had you been sitting in the poker room at Hollywood Casino Toledo a few weeks ago, you might have noticed a lanky, bespectacled stranger wearing a sky-blue suit strolling among the tables, chatting with the floor boss and dealers on break. That man was Ken Lambert Jr. — new to Toledo but hardly new to poker rooms. Since mid-February, Lambert has served as the casino’s new poker room manager. It is the latest job title for a man whose poker pedigree reaches back three decades, all the way to Jack Binion’s storied Horseshoe casino in Las Vegas, where a teenage Lambert got bit by the casino bug in the late 1970s while working as a busboy. It was his father, Ken Lambert Sr., who got him his start. When Ken Jr. was old enough, he taught himself to deal, passed an audition and was hired at Vegas World. Since then, Lambert has been involved in some aspect of running poker rooms from Las Vegas

to Oklahoma to Mississippi and now Toledo. Lambert was hired to turbocharge Hollywood Casino Toledo’s poker room. As Lambert rolls out plans to expand poker tournaments at the casino and initiate events designed to draw players from across the region, he expects his efforts will “kick it up a notch” in the 20-table poker room. Penn National Gaming, which owns Hollywood Casino Toledo, had been searching for someone who was “the right fit for the property,” said Jeffrey Goodman, vice president of casino operations at Hollywood Casino Toledo. The poker room manager slot had been vacant since last year, Goodman said, and the casino was not only seeking a replacement with extensive poker knowledge but a person with “great poker business acumen.” Some company officials knew of Lambert, who had semi-retired from the gaming life a couple of years ago, and put forth his name as a candidate for the job. Goodman said Lambert’s job “is to increase traffic and revenue in the [poker] room.” The company tracks poker revenue for management use but declined to release those numbers. However, Goodman said poker room business had been “a little stagnant over the past couple months,” with most business coming on weekends, Friday through Sunday during the day. According to monthly figures released by the Ohio Casino Control Commission, gam-

blers at Hollywood Casino Toledo wagered $10.8 million on table games in January and $12.95 million in February. Gamblers wagered a total of $234.3 million on slot machines during the same period. In 2013, gamblers wagered $1.81 billion at Toledo’s casino, with about 10 percent, $159.4 million, coming from table games. Toledo has the fewest table games — 80 — of Ohio’s four casinos. The casino reached out to Lambert, 51, who was living in his home state of Indiana, reconnecting with family after the nonstop duties of a Vegas casino official and the peripatetic lifestyle of a World Series of Poker tournament manager. The self-described workaholic — who opened the Mirage casino on the Vegas strip in 1989 and is known for being the first person to run a World Series of Poker event outside of Las Vegas — said when Hollywood Casino Toledo called, it made him realize he still had a passion for the game. That passion along with a desire to provide for his new wife, whom he married in December, made Lambert eager to end his hiatus and come to work in Toledo.

One of Lambert’s first duties has been to help finalize the Toledo satellite events for this year’s second annual Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) tournament. n POKER CONTINUES ON 16

n HOLLYWOOD CASINO TOLEDO POKER ROOM MANAGER KEN LAMBERT JR. WILL HOST HOLLYWOOD POKER OPEN IN MAY.


16 Business Link n POKER CONTINUED FROM 15 The $2,500-seat tourney will take place at Penn National Gaming’s M Resort Spa & Casino in Henderson, Nev., on June 27-29. Area poker players can vie for a $4,000 prize, including a seat at the tournament, hotel accommodations and spending cash, at each of three Hollywood Casino Toledo satellite events to be held the last three Saturdays in May (May 17, 24, 31). The structure of the satellites will be a $125 buy-in with unlimited $50 rebuys during the first two hours of play. The maximum number of players for each event is 160, and Hollywood Casino Toledo is guaranteeing five seats to the HPO from each of those satellites. “That’s a pretty strong guarantee,” Lambert said. Lambert said there would also be a free roll tournament for regular players at the casino’s poker room. Players who log enough hours in cash games or play in enough tournaments this spring can sign up for a chance to play their way

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com

into the HPO. The free roll would be held in advance of the three satellites, he said, and likely be structured in two flights on the same day to avoid a repeat of last year’s inaugural event when a long line of applicants were turned away. So why should Lambert — veteran of Vegas, former protégé of Jack Binion, friend of Doyle Brunson, whose Rolodex contains the phone numbers of countless famous professional poker players — be content to pace the poker room at Hollywood Casino Toledo? Lambert said he loves the property, citing its newness and stateof-the-art technology, including the mammoth rear-projection TV screens in and around Scene sports bar. Lambert is already thinking outside the poker room box. He has ideas for large-scale tournaments that would require additional, temporary seating beyond the 200-player capacity of Hollywood’s poker room. He also said he would like to reach out to celebrity players like Todd Brunson, Vanessa

Rousso and the flamboyant Robert Williamson III to participate in poker room events at Hollywood Casino Toledo. Lambert conceded the lack of a hotel on the Hollywood Casino property is a drawback. While he called it “tough to overcome the room situation,” he predicted the big events he envisions for Toledo would “fill up every hotel in Rossford and down the road.” Lambert is also interested in expanding the menu of poker room ac-

tion to include higher limit Texas hold ’em games, ante-only hold ’em tournaments and a high-low split Omaha game. Those changes cannot happen overnight — new games require state gaming commission permits — but Lambert, who is licensed in eight states to run gambling operations, doesn’t foresee regulatory roadblocks and is confident the changes will take place during the year. By the way, that first World Series of

March 16, 2014 Poker offsite event was a charity tournament at the ESPN Zone in Times Square in 2005. So you could have met Lambert had you been standing in that maelstrom of the masses nine years ago. Either way, should you run into him on the poker floor at Hollywood Casino, feel free to introduce yourself. Just bear in mind your interlocutor has already heard, from amateurs and top pros alike, thousands of bad beat stories — so spare him yours. ✯

Uncle Walt By Jeff McGinnis Toledo Free Press Pop Culture Editor PopGoesJeff@gmail.com

She called him “Uncle Walt.” Decades after his passing, Walt Disney is a bit of an unknowable figure for modern audiences — families who have grown up with the classic films he helped create. For most people who watch “Snow White,” “Fantasia,” “Pinocchio” and more, the man who made it all possible is simply a legendary figure. They have no sense of the human being at his core. It isn’t like that for Karen Dotrice Nalle. Born in Guernsey on the Channel Islands, Dotrice Nalle was the daughter of two actors and ended up becoming part of the family business almost by accident. After being sighted by a Disney scout in a play, she was brought to California with her family to work in the company’s films. There, she came to see the then-53-year-old Disney as a bit of a father figure — one who treated his young stars with respect befitting another adult. One day, she was visiting Disney in his office when inspiration struck. “I said to him, ‘You know, Uncle Walt, your desk is so far away from the door where

people come in. And I’ve got a great idea. I can help you,’” Dotrice Nalle said in an interview with Toledo Free Press. “’Why don’t we move your desk closer to the door, so you won’t have so far to walk?’ “And he was great, because he didn’t treat me like a kid. And he said, ‘Karen, let me tell you something; it’s over here for a reason. Because by the time those cigarchewing executives have had to cross the floor and get to my desk, they’ve changed their mind about what they were going to ask me.’” Dotrice Nalle was only 8 years old when she was chosen in 1964 to star in what had become a passion project for Disney — his long-gestating adaptation of P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins.” Karen was cast as Jane, one of the Banks children, in what would become a smash hit that made her a recognizable face worldwide. “I feel very blessed. Disney gave me a gift. He picked me out of the blue. It could have been any other little girl. And I made three films for them, and they were always such happy experiences,” Dotrice Nalle said. “What kid wants to miss out on magic? He was magic, the set was magic, everything that he did for us.” It was remarkable rise for a young

performer who didn’t necessarily ever want to be an actress. “I didn’t really want to participate, actually. It was the family firm — we could have been dentists, we happened to be actors. I don’t know if there’s many 5-year-olds who say, ‘Ooh, mummy, I want to be a dentist.’ Or an actor. I just sort of fell into it. I had a great time, absolutely. “Ultimately, it just wasn’t for me. I’m kind of a private person, so being out there in front of people wasn’t my ultimate cup of tea,” Dotrice Nalle said. “I was really lucky. So I feel a bit of an ingrate, because I sort of got everything — which is kind of unfortunate that I didn’t want it more. I loved the fans, I loved the crew, I loved being on set. But the whole notion of being an actress just wasn’t for me.” She left acting at a young age with an eye on becoming a mother (she eventually had three children), though she has never quite ended her connection with Hollywood. She married producer Edwin Nalle in 1994 and still lives in Los Angeles — strictly for the weather, she insists with a chuckle. n POPPINS CONTINUES ON 19

I’m married to a guy who’s a TV producer, my family are actors still . So I’ve never left the profession, and I never want to. I think it’s the most exciting game there is.” But with the 50th anniversary of “Mary Poppins” upon us, Dotrice

Nalle is beginning to reconnect with the memories of her past. For the first time, she’ll be doing a few appearances at conventions and other events in the days to come. She recently attended a screening of “Poppins” at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood — the first time she’d actually seen the whole movie, believe it or not. And she was also at the premiere of “Saving Mr. Banks” — which inspired new reflections on a wonderful time of her life,

and the caring, childlike man who made it possible. “He didn’t baby you, or talk down to any of his actors — and I know Hayley Mills felt the same way,” Dotrice Nalle recalled. “I think he was more our age than his own age. “What a gift to be given in life, considering I am a nontheatrical type of person. What a gift to be given, that somebody is ever going to remember me for something.” ✯

Cleveland Film Festival kicks off March 19 By James A. Molnar Toledo Free Press Film Editor jmolnar@toledofreepress.com

Film enthusiasts can take a quick trip down the turnpike for a peek at up-and-coming films and filmmakers. On March 19, the lights will go dark and the projector will illuminate the big screen as the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) kicks off at Tower City Cinemas in downtown Cleveland. The 12-day festival will showcase more than 180 feature films and more than 160 short films from 68 different countries, according to Patrick Shepherd, associate director of CIFF. CIFF is the largest film festival between New York and Chicago, according to Shepherd. “There’s no other festival in the region that matches us in attendance,” he said in an interview with Toledo Free Press. CIFF has been at Tower City Cinemas since 1991, according to Shepherd. Back then, the attendance for the festival was around 15,000. In 2013, attendance for CIFF was more than 93,000, a record. CIFF kicks off its opening night gala March 19 with screenings of “Not Another Happy Ending,” a romantic comedy that director John McKay is flying in from Scotland to attend. The festival begins in earnest on March 20. On a typical day there will

be around 40 films screened between 9 a.m. and midnight. On Fridays and Saturdays, there are late-night screenings that start around 11:30 p.m. Organizers spend all year looking for films from around the world, Shepherd said. There is also a call for entries launched every summer. He said there were nearly 2,000 films submitted for consideration this year. Once films are selected, CIFF works closely to connect specific films with nonprofit organizations in northern Ohio. Last year was the first time CIFF reached out to Toledo organizations, said Shepherd, a 1993 Bowling Green State University graduate. Partners included Toledo-Lucas County Public Library and Equality Toledo. Both organizations are continuing the partnership this year, along with Toledo Pride, the Hungarian Club of Toledo and the Great Lakes Consortium for International Training and Development. Toledo partnership film screenings include “Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia,” “Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine,” “One: A Story of Love and Equality” and “Men with Balls.” More information and a schedule for the festival can be found online at clevelandfilm.org or by downloading CIFF’s mobile app. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor for the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival.

Irish bars anticipate annual spike in business for St. Pat’s By Brigitta Burks Toledo Free Press Staff Writer bburks@toledofreepress.com

They may not anticipate a pot of gold, but several owners and managers of local Irish pubs do expect a spike in business for St. Patrick’s Day. Andy Katafiasz, owner of OB’s Tavern on Tremainsville Road in West Toledo, said St. Patrick’s Day accounts for between 11 percent and 14 percent of the bar’s annual revenue. “One day out of the year, [OB’s] transKATAFIASZ forms itself into the biggest party in town. … ‘Everybody has to stop by OB’s,’ is what everybody tells me,” Katafiasz said of the 800-square-foot tavern, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Many firefighters, including one who plays the bagpipe, regularly come to OB’s, he added. “It’s awesome to hear the bagpipes in that little place,” Katafiasz said. Green beer, drink specials, koozie favors and a special Jiggs dinner are also planned. Bill Kline, general manager of The Blarney Irish Pub in Downtown Toledo, said even if the weather isn’t great, he expects a crowd at the establishment’s annual party. “I don’t think the weather’s going to deter folks. Everybody has cabin fever,” he said. However, weather does have some impact on St. Patrick’s festivities. Last

year’s two-day St. Patrick’s Day events at The Blarney drew in more than 7,000 patrons, Kline estimated. However, he recalled the particularly warm St. Patrick’s Day in 2012, where 7,000 came on one day alone. The pub is hosting Shamrockin’ The Blarney 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, a four-day celebration starting at 9 p.m. March 14. The festivities include a heated tent on Huron Street on March 15 and 17. A portion of the party proceeds go to Local 92 Firefighters Charities and Project iAm, a local charity that raises money for children who have autism. The Blarney is also offering an Irish brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 16 and an Irish breakfast starting at 7 a.m. March 17. For more details about cab and hotel packages related to Shamrockin’, visit www. theblarneyirishpub.com. St. Patrick’s Day falling on a Monday may also impact business, said Jeff Lark, owner of Shawn’s Irish Tavern locations in Waterville and Sylvania. “Sometimes, the best day [for St. Patrick’s Day to fall] is Wednesday or Thursday,” Lark said. “Typically, people are anxious to get out a bit earlier because it’s getting toward the end of the week.” Lark said he anticipates bigger crowds during the weekend leading up to St. Patrick’s Day. In addition to green beer, Shawn’s will offer drink specials, entertainment and favors. An $8 Jiggs dinner is available from the afternoon of March 16 through 17.

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com

Local family’s fundraiser inspires $1 million challenge grant A Waterville boy’s $20 random act of kindness could turn into a $2 million donation, thanks to a challenge grant from a Texas company who wants to help him pay it forward. Dallas-based Highland Capital Management heard about 8-year-old Myles Eckert, who recently found $20 in the parking lot of a Maumee restaurant and gave it to a soldier in uniform eating lunch, along with a note. ECKERT “Dear Soldier,” the note read. “My dad was a soldier. He’s in heaven now. I found this 20 dollars in the parking lot when we got here. We like to pay it forward in my family. It’s your lucky day! Thank you for your service. Myles Eckert, a gold star kid.” Dailey and the Eckert family have since been interviewed by Steve Hartman of CBS News and Ellen DeGeneres and the story has been shared extensively on social media. Tiffany Eckert had no idea her son’s random act of kindness would generate so much attention. But when it did, the family was inundated with inquiries on how to send Myles money. Instead, they decided to redirect the requests to fundraising website Crowdtilt, where they set up an account so donations will go to a Texasbased national military children’s charity called Snowball Express. In response, Highland has offered to match donations made on behalf of Myles up to $1 million through Memorial Day on May 26. Founded in 2006, Snowball Express provides “hope and new happy memories to the children of military

fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11.” The group offers the children a four-day experience filled with fun activities like sporting events, dances, amusement parks and more, according to its website. Myles’ father, 24-year-old Army Sgt. Gary “Andy” Eckert Jr., was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq on May 8, 2005, during his second tour of duty. Myles was just 4 weeks old and his sister Marlee was 20 months old. In a March 13 news release, James Dondero, co-founder and president of Highland, said “The Eckert children and their commitment to paying it forward are, and will continue to be, an incredible inspiration. “We believe every single one of us has a responsibility to help the children of our fallen military heroes,” Dondero said in the release. “Not one of us can do it alone, not Snowball Express, not Highland, and certainly not the individual families, but together, we have the ability to do great things by creating a supportive environment for all of these children and honoring the memories of their parents.” “Highland’s challenge grant is ambitious, as it should be, but I’m confident the $1 million target can be achieved as others join us in paying it forward,” added Mark Okada, cofounder and chief investment officer of Highland, in the release. Snowball Express serves more than 1,200 children per year who’ve lost a parent in the military. “While we’re extremely proud of that figure, in truth there are many more children we need to serve,” said Snowball Express Executive Director Buck Kern in the release. “There are more than 8,000 Gold Star children

in our country today who have lost a parent serving in our military since 9/11. Should we successfully meet the challenge, we’ll be in a better position to serve them all.” Tiffany said she’s thrilled to be able to give back to Snowball Express and even

more excited about the challenge grant. “Snowball Express has provided much-needed support for my family these past few years,” she said in the release. “The challenge grant will allow this great organization to serve even more Gold Star children

across the country and improve this critical support system.” To donate, visit https://www. crowdtilt.com/campaigns/mylesmarlee-eckert-want-you-to-pay-itforward. O — Sarah Ottney

Your Tarotgram and Horoscope

March 16 – 22, 2014

Events: Full Moon in Virgo (16th), Mercury enters Pisces (17th), Sun enters Aries (20th) Critical decisions are on the table, but action is down the road. You want to know where you stand, but that can change depending on who you ask/trust for information. Make a new friend on Tuesday. Gather strength and handle details to prepare for big challenges in April.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

The full moon heightens desires and fears. Attaining what you want may be risky. Get advice from successful people midweek; this will alleviate anxieties. Other people’s struggles, losses, and changes occupy attention after Thursday. Plan fun activities for Saturday evening.

Your well-being depends on how perceptions influence your emotions. You may be skeptical about surface appearances and blithe promises. Midweek endings or breakaways could be a relief. Pay attention to loved ones after Thursday; people are mired in entanglements.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

You come full circle as the week begins. Ongoing issues underscore what you can control and what’s dependent upon others. Tuesday is favorable for personal connections. After Thursday, unusual elements appear in your workplace. Take a low-key approach.

A Pandora’s box opens if skills and resources don’t match pressing goals. Seek additional resources on Tuesday through friends and networks. A bit of good fortune arrives on Wednesday. Friday starts good but ends in confusion. Socialize on Saturday.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

External confidence masks private concerns. Messages from distant relations give assurance that sticky issues and longterm efforts are being resolved. The shape of your family is changing. Give yourself time and privacy to process and digest all the transitions.

Travel and education plans are improvements for the future. It’s hard to curb expenditures with multiple demands at hand. Seek group rates and discounts midweek. Limitations or delays may be necessary. Coordinated activities inspire you on Saturday.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Your workplace is a game of musical chairs. Appointments may seem contrary to interests, putting round pegs in square holes. Emotional turbulence connected to family matters brings out your strength and leadership skills. Lifestyle transitions will remain uncertain for a while.

Shared finances and mutual transitions provoke an excess of details and tasks. Boundary issues can pop up in unexpected ways. You fare best with clearly defined objectives; negotiate vague situations on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hook up with friends on Saturday.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Your need to exert mastery over life choices and career expertise is complicated by changing circumstances. People seem vague or a bit loopy this week. You do best with workable facts. Beware of cases of mistaken identity after Thursday. Double-check measurements.

The full moon focuses your attention on relatives near and far. A lot of travel and movement take place this week. It will be a challenge to harmonize plans with other people. Do the best you can with philosophical detachment; things work out the way they’re supposed to.

“We are your neighbors, friends and family. Our kids play together.We listen when you are sad, mad and happy — and when you are hungry, we feed you and your family the food that we made with our own two hands.When you are thirsty, we are the first to sit and share a pint and laugh along with you or just offer company. And at the end of the day, we watch the same sunset from the same view.We are local.” – Tony Bilancini, Owner of Swig Restaurant

Libra (September 23-October 22)

The full moon stirs your senses and fires your ambitions. You dream big, but you also have substantial obstacles to overcome before you can attain goals. Friends inspire you on Tuesday. After Thursday, consider what’s obsolete and irrelevant to your purposes.

CARLSON’S CRITTERS

A home for James, Thunder

James is a 3-year-old Chihuahua mix with an independent soul. He enjoys playing with his toys and going for walks around the block. It takes him a little while before he’s ready to show his emotional side and he is more likely to develop a strong bond with one person, rather than warming up to a large family. For a little dog, James is quite a piggy when it comes to food. He may try to guard over his food bowl and hide his bones. James is finicky when it comes to other dogs. He likes to feel like he is in control at all times and prefers calmer dogs that he can dominate. James is a great size for a smaller home or apartment. He has been neutered, examined by a Toledo Area Humane Society (TAHS) veterinarian, is current on his vaccinations and is microchipped. Thunder is a 10-month-old male, gray tiger shorthair. Thunder earned his name because when he is snuggling in your lap, he purrs with so much enthusiasm that the whole chair trembles. Thunder is an extremely affectionate guy and he won’t put up with being ignored. If necessary, he will follow you around the house until you take time to stop and Toledo Free Press publishes classified ads and cannot be responsible for problems arising between parties placing or responding to ads in our paper. We strongly urge everyone to exercise caution when dealing with people, companies and organizations with whom you are not familiar.

James fawn over his presence. Thunder loves to play games. If you shine a laser light around the room, he will do his best to chase it down. He also enjoys playing with little wads of paper. Offer him love, toys, a warm bed, a good meal and he is one happy kitty. Thunder has been neutered, examined by a TAHS staff veterinarian, is current on his vaccinations and is microchipped.

Thunder Toledo Area Humane Society is located at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Arrowhead Park, Maumee. Adoption hours are noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call (419) 891-0705 or visit www. toledoareahumanesociety.org. O
