Hell hath no fury
uring his mayoral campaign, Mike Bell often referred to Toledo as a “sinking ship.” Attention needed to be paid to the economic fundamentals, Bell argued, not rearranging deck chairs. So it was historically appropriate that on April 15, the exact 99-year anniversary of the sinking of Titanic, Bell called a news conference to announce that a deal to sell the Marina District had struck an iceberg in the form of Toledo City Council. Dashing Pacific, the Chinese-based company that recently purchased The Docks, offered $3.8 million for the Marina District, which has sat empty and undeveloped for a decade. Dashing Pacific did not ask for any tax breaks or city money. The company simply offered to buy and develop the property in what should have been a promising transaction. Instead of welcoming the investment and finding ways to cooperate with Bell and Dashing Pacific, some Council members made odd demands and carried themselves as if they were doing the company a favor by deigning to the land. Thomas F. Pounds sellSteve Steel spoke condescendingly to Mayor Bell, objecting that Dashing Pacific is “12 time zones away and we don’t know anything about their track record.” We know their check for The Docks cleared. We know they are the only global concern to step up and try to help revitalize Toledo. Lindsay Webb, whose political standing has fallen dramatically in the past few months, seemed more interested in imposing “restrictive covenants” and in parroting a Blade editorial than expressing her own thoughts. Most curiously, the normally reliable and thoughtful D. Michael Collins clouded the issue with these comments: “I would expect that the prospective purchaser provide within the instrument of purchase, a complete business plan — defining schedules, financing, marketing and all of those essentials that would be required under a business plan for a conventional loan.” This is incongruent, of course, as there was nothing resembling a loan in the transaction. Collins also suggested that if 51 percent of the business plan were not complete within two years, the property would revert to Toledo for $2 million. Given the variables in development and construction, such a proposal is nothing less than obtructionist and nonsensical. But the 51 percent number could have some useful application. Perhaps City Council members should be held accountable for at least 51 percent of their campaign promises. Perhaps voters should look back on 51 percent of the resolutions, votes and actions taken by Council and prepare a list of items to be discussed as each seat is up for re-election. Titanic was sunk by only the smallest portion of the iceberg it struck; while there is faith that Mayor Bell will be able to salvage the Dashing Pacific deal for the Marina District, it is the 51 percent number that will resonate from this conflict. It’s appropriate, as 51 percent symbolizes the half-assed effort Toledo City Council has devoted to this transaction. O Thomas F.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
How we educate children will determine our future Dear Residents of Sylvania, Twenty-four years ago I remember my husband and I tromping through the snow looking at houses. My 2-yearold was bundled in a snowsuit perched on my hip. About a year before, I had begun asking everyone which school district had the best public education in the area. The answer I had repeatedly received was why we choose to look for a home in Sylvania. The house we liked the best had hundreds of little footprints in the yard, which we perceived as a clue to the number of children in the neighborhood. In 1996, when all three of our children were attending Sylvania Schools, after a district operating levy had failed, was passed, and then the millage amount was successfully rolled back, I made the decision to become personally involved in our children’s educations and our community’s schools, a decision I will never regret. During my service to the community, and because our children had different needs and interests, I learned a great deal about the learning process and education. I also became keenly aware of the local, state and federal menagerie of funding, and the social and economic impact that a quality education package has on an individual, a family, and a community. A couple of weeks ago, I saw an interesting video. The video demonstrated the way we, as a society, choose to divide our “pie.” The first and largest piece was given to a neatly dressed man, representing our mortgages. The next two pieces about equal in size went to a man as car one and a woman as car two. The fourth piece was given to a elegantly dressed woman as fashion expenses, and the next to a businessman representing credit expenditures. Lastly, a couple of pie crumbs, representing education, were sprinkled over a sleeping teenage boy, dressed in an old hooded sweatshirt with earphones in his ears. Sadly, this scenario of images accurately represents our situation as well as our priorities. I’m sure you’ll agree that our world has been dramatically changed by technology in our lifetime. Its use has expanded our access to knowledge. It is not always for the better, but we do have the world at our fingertips, limited

only by our willingness and our fear, of its acceptance. Technology has and will continue to change the rate knowledge expands, our access to the knowledge and its use, limited only by our imagination and our resources. Our world is changing, our children and our children’s children, will gain knowledge in ways we can only imagine — how we resolve to educate them reflects our priorities and will determine our future economic viability as a community, a state, a nation. O Pam Haynam, Sylvania
On second thought ... In Michael S. Miller’s April 17 column (“Crystal sour vox”) he quoted himself as saying, “As a middle-aged, overweight white guy with graying facial hair, I am America’s ruling demographic ...” What planet does Miller live on? We’re not the ruling demographic, we’re the targets. O JOHN R. HILL, Sylvania
Hit the showers, Coach Carty Congratulations to Mayor Mike Bell and his administration for [his efforts to pull off] a second great economic development deal with our new Chinese friends, Dashing Pacific Group Ltd. While the infusion of $3.8 million to the city coffers is certainly welcome news, the fact that it took $43 million of taxpayer money to get the property known as the “Marina District” to the point where it could be finally marketed, is distressing. True to form, our egomaniac former mayor, Carty Finkbeiner, couldn’t wait to start throwing stones at the deal. Let us not forget that it was none other than Finkbeiner who squandered $19 million of Toledo taxpayer’s money on this failed monument to his personal economic development genius, with more than $8 million of that going to building the one-mile long “road to nowhere.” n LETTERS CONTINUES ON A5
April 24, 2011 n LETTERS CONTINUED FROM A4 (Now we know where all the money for the maintenance of the water treatment plant and the paving of our crumbling roads and infrastructure went to). So obsessed was Finkbeiner in building his pipe dream, that he commissioned enough “conceptual drawings” from his development partner, Larry Dillin, to wallpaper the entire 22nd floor of One Government Center. Remember, Finkbeiner was the self-appointed architect behind failed development projects such as: Museum Place Apartments, The Commodore Perry and Hillcrest Hotel Apartments, The Edison Steam Plant project and the Southwyck Mall redevelopment, all of which cost Toledo taxpayers millions of dollars and put us on the hook for millions more for years to come. You would think that with his track record of total failure, the guy would have the decency to schlep off to some distant burg to live it down in obscurity. But not Carty. He is bound and determined to stick around, waiting for some opportunity to take credit for something positive that he had nothing to do with, or to cast scorn and doubt on those who manage to succesfully move the ball down the field for “Team Toledo.” It’s time for “Coach Carty” to hit the showers once and for all.

It would not surprise me in the least to see Obama’s approval ratings drop at least 10 percent by the end of his term, especially with the way his administration has handled (or failed to) this jobless recovery. I would be shocked if his party allows him to run for a second term. The Democrats are not stupid; they know that dissatisfied voters sway elections. Angry Democrats helped elect Reagan over Carter and frustrated Republicans helped elect Clinton to his first term over H.W. Bush. Only two things are certain right now; Republicans are going to work hard to find a respectable, electable candidate to take control of the White House in 2012, and Obama’s publicist is going to be earning his paycheck in the coming months.

As many Northwest Ohio residents learned last summer, a federal disaster declaration — and the resulting federal funds to help rebuild — is not a guarantee even in the wake of a destructive and fatal string of tornadoes. The next Ready U session, “Disaster Aid: Myths and Facts,” organized by the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of DRAGANI the American Red Cross, will address common misconceptions about state and federal aid as well as the short-term local resources available immediately following a disaster. The session will be presented by Nancy Dragani, executive director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency (EMA). Dragani, who also serves on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Advisory Council, has worked with the Ohio EMA since 1994, serving as director since 2005. The free, hour-long presentation is set for 7 p.m. April 25 at the McMaster Center in the Main Library, 325 N. Michigan St., and will be hosted by 13abc’s Sashem Brey. The session will first address what criteria must be met for a region to be declared a disaster area and then what state and federal government assistance residents can realistically expect once a declaration is made, Dragani
said in a recent phone interview. “I think people sometimes overestimate what kind of assistance they’ll get if we get a federal declaration,” Dragani said. “It’s not like you have an event and FEMA gives you a check for $2,100, and I think sometimes that catches people off-guard. People make an assumption that the money comes faster, comes easier and they will get a whole lot more than is actually the case.” The average individual assistance grant is typically between $4,000 and $6,000, Dragani said. “That’s really not a whole lot of money,” Dragani said. “That might replace a living room suite or dining room suite, but it’s not going to make someone whole. The whole purpose is to get them back on the road to recovery, but it won’t make them whole.” When FEMA evaluates a region after a disaster, it looks for uninsured damage. In the case of last year’s tornado, about 95 percent of damage was covered by home insurance, so the uninsured portion did not reach the level required for further government aid, Dragani said. “That’s a very difficult thing for people to understand because intuitively tornadoes cause a tremendous amount of damage and in that case we had fatalities as well,” Dragani said. “People in the Toledo area remember that and think ‘What could be more disastrous?’ but from federal perspective — not discounting at all the trauma to the school, community and individuals that were impacted — it didn’t require the federal assistance to help individuals recover, which is really what FEMA is all about.” Local resources, including county EMA teams, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and other organizations,

provide the first-responder, shortterm assistance after a disaster, said Matthew Heyrman, project manager for Lucas County EMA. “There’s an expectation out there that federal resources will be on the ground and there the next day and that’s not the reality,” Heyrman said. “As we say all the time in EMA, disasters are local. We are on our own at least for the first 72 hours. We have to use what we have here. The federal government is going to do as much as they can as fast as they can, but it takes time.” After local government declares a state of emergency, the state governor can make a declaration and then petition the president to declare a federal disaster, Heyrman said.
“Only then do we get the FEMA funds and things people see on TV,” Heyrman said. “We have great resources here and when the tornado or flood comes, we are going to do our best, but in any situation where a lot of people are affected, the government is going to triage and help the worst areas first. So people can help themselves and their family in a better position by having a kit, being informed and having a plan.” Dragani said she hopes attendees will take away the importance of insurance. “None of the [federal] programs will make them whole,” Dragani said. “They need to look at insurance policies to adequately protect themselves before an event because that’s where
the most comprehensive recovery protection is going to come from.” Ready U, a 10-session yearlong series presented by the Red Cross of Greater Toledo and the Lucas County EMA, is designed to educate the public and prepare individuals and families for potential emergencies in Northwest Ohio. Attendees will receive reusable grocery bags and have a chance to win raffle prizes, including a gift card from The Andersons, said Sheri Meeker, community disaster education specialist for the Red Cross.

TPS to inspect several roofs after winter leaks By Emily B. Gibb
Toledo Free Press News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
The Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty Between the bones of the face are moist air spaces called sinuses. While these hollow cavities are small and hidden, people with sinus problems know that when they become swollen or irritated, it can be a big problem. Common symptoms of sinusitis, or sinus infection, include facial pain, pressure or fullness; loss of smell; bad breath; pain in the upper teeth; or a discharge of discolored mucus from the nose.
Toledo Public Schools is inspecting the repairs needed to fix leaking roofs at Bowsher High School, Leverette Middle School and East Broadway Middle School. Lisa Sobecki, vice president of the TPS Board of Education, said that even though these are newer schools, the leaks could have happened to any roof, regardless of its age. When the snow and ice began accumulating on the roof, then thawing and then freezing over again, water was able to seep underneath the shingles and freeze — causing the leaks once it began to thaw again, Sobecki said. She said that the district is com-
municating with the schools to let them know the process that will be used to fix the problems. The board is stepping lightly so it can ensure that it is not spending unnecessary money because many parts of the buildings are still under warranty, Sobecki said. The district wants to SOBECKI avoid doing its own patch repairs and then finding out it voided the warranty. “We want to make sure that if there’s any repair work that we do that it falls under warranty specifications,” Sobecki said. “We’re taking precau-
tions so we don’t jeopardize further repairs and dollars.” Sobecki said that the district is also up against the weather. The district has not have not wanted to send people up to the roof with the wind and rain during the last few weeks. TPS’ construction manager, The Lathrop Company, inspected the roofs to assess and advise the board as to what needs to be done, but the board has to wait until the manufacturer for each roof looks at what it will replace before TPS can estimate the total cost of repairing the three schools, said Jim Gant, TPS business manager. “We can do some general patching, but I don’t even know what we need to do to fix it until they take a look at it,” Gant said. Enough repairs were completed
when TPS initially noticed the leaks so it have not had any problems with it since the brunt of winter ended, Gant said. So far, no permanent damage to property inside the schools has been reported, Gant and Sobecki said. But the board isn’t only dealing with roof issues in the district’s newer buildings. Even though TPS knew about HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) problems at another newer building, Rosa Parks Elementary, earlier in the year, it was unable to take any action until the ground thawed because some of the problematic HVAC lines run underground, Gant said. Those repairs are to be completed within the next few weeks, he said. O
While many people experience sinusitis only temporarily after a cold or allergy attack, some may experience persistent symptoms. Balloon sinuplasty is a relatively new procedure that uses a small balloon to alleviate chronic sinusitis. The small, soft device is entered through the nostrils and inflated. Then, the piece is deflated and removed. This remolds the sinus passage, creating a permanent widening that allows for easier breathing and healthy drainage of fluid.
“. . . a consistent triumPH . . . eXtraordinary”
Compared to conventional sinus surgery, which removes bone and tissue, balloon sinuplasty causes less bleeding and damage to sinus tissues. Most people experience nearly immediate relief and can return to normal activity within 24 hours.

Easter provides family celebration time for Blanks Editor’s note: Toledo Free Press will follow the Blank family of Millbury for one year as they rebuild their lives after a June 5 tornado destroyed their Main Street home.
By Brandi Barhite
Toledo Free Press Associate Editor email@example.com
The Blanks are preparing to cele-
brate Easter by christening their newly bought grill. The old grill was blown away in the June 5 tornado that destroyed their home but reinforced their faith.

“I don’t want to say we are super super religious as much as we are believers. I think we have a pretty strong faith,” Ed Blank said. Even when the family wants to skip church, they try not to. “Every day you go to church, you walk out feeling good. On the days you don’t go, you feel like a part of you is missing,” Ed BLANK FAMILY: said. The Easter grilling session will come after a Sunday morning service at Zion Lutheran Church-Latcha. The holiday — and the church — means a lot to the family. Pastor Sarah Teichmann, her husband, Erik, and members of the congregation have supported the Blanks since the tornado. The Blanks were supposed to meet the new pastor the morning after the storm, but instead had to pick through rubble. “The Lutheran synod was instrumental in getting us back on our feet,” Ed said. “A lot of church members to this day ask us if we need anything. The church group has been our blanket of recovery. They have been very, very, very instrumental in helping us cope with what we went through and us not having our neighbors, the Walters, next door anymore.” Three of the four Walters died in the tornado. This loss has reinforced the Blanks’ desire to be with family on the holidays and whenever possible. Julie Blank invited her sister and brother-in-law among other relatives to Easter dinner. The Blanks bought the grill from The Andersons, although settled on a version less extravagant than the grill that “is in Kansas now,” Ed said. He and his friends had always referred to that grill as the “BAG,” the big-ass grill. “Everybody said, ‘What are you cooking on the BAG today?’” The newest grill looks like “it has been exercising because it is not quite as big as before,” he said. The grill lost in the tornado cost nearly $1,000, but this time Ed decided to be more economical. The smaller grill isn’t expected to affect the big Easter celebration, though. “Now it is the MAG, the mediumass grill,” Ed said, laughing. O

Salon offers free hair, makeup for Lake prom Stylists at Brodava Salon in Perrysburg are donating their time to offer free hair and makeup for students attending Lake’s prom. The event will run from noon to 5 p.m. April 29 at the salon, located at 742 W. Boundary St., and appointments are filling up fast, Owner Crissy George said. The prom will take place that night near the salon at the Hilton Garden Inn with dinner provided by Nagoya Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi at Levis Commons. “We just wanted to give back and partner with Nagoya and the Hilton to create an unforgettable prom for Lake students after the destruction last year’s tornado caused to their school and community,” George said. “It actually affected a lot of the families, which didn’t get as much publicity as the school did. We just want to help them out. As soon as the announcement was made at the school, one of the moms called in tears and said, ‘You have no idea what this has done for my daughter.’ Just that alone made you appreciate everything that we’ve got.” For more information, call the salon at (419) 873-6500.

Downtown Toledo’s Huntington Center was tops in ticket sales in 2010, generating three times more in sales than any other Midwest venue of its size. The ranking was published in the April issue of concert industry magazine Venues Today, which annually lists the top-performing venues in regards to ticket sales. The Huntington Center had $6,717,517 in ticket sales last year, the 12-state region’s highest total in the 5,001 to 10,000 capacity category. No. 2 was the Meadow Brook Festival in Rochester, Mich., with $1,999,690. “It’s a great honor for us,” said General Manager Steve Miller of SMG, which provides management services to 220 public assembly facilities in the United States, including Huntington Center. “We’re really excited as this is putting Toledo on the map as a concert destination. Hopefully it will lead to more shows down the road. That’s the name of the game for us.” The Huntington Center would compete well even against larger Midwest venues, Miller said. If placed in the 10,001 to 15,000 seat capacity, category, the Huntington Center would still come in No. 3, behind INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., and Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich., according to a news release.

Standard & Poorer
he big news this week came when the rating agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded its outlook on long-term U.S. debt on fears that the United States’ budget difficulties may lead the Treasury to default on some of its bonds. This news, of course, sent shockwaves through financial markets, knocking major stock industries down several points upon release. The sentiment — and portfolios — of many investors around the world changed very quickly with this action by S&P. S&P’s decision to downgrade its outlook on long-term U.S. debt comes on the heels of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s warnings that a failure by Congress to raise the debt ceiling could result in a default on government debt. In other words, Mr. Geithner is warning Congress that the United States’ national debt has grown so large that the Treasury can no longer afford to service that debt without taking on additional debt. Sound idiotic? That’s because it is. First, Mr. Geithner, in his infinite wisdom, is pretending that he lacks any other mechanisms for servicing U.S. debt. Monetization stands out as one viable option; and while the resulting inflation would be far from ideal, it beats the heck out of default, which would cripple this nation’s credibility in international markets. Then again, Congress could always cut back on spending and gradually reduce the national debt. n TREECE CONTINUES ON A17
The Maritime Academy of Toledo is now operating out of its new home in the former maritime union building on Water Street in Downtown Toledo. The Maritime Academy moved into the state-of-the-art marine training facility which it is leasing from the American Maritime Officers Plan (AMOP). “We now have the best marine educational facilities in the country,” Superintendent Renee Marazon said. She reported that the AMOP came to the academy about using the training facilities and left all the equipment and simulators for the students to use. The Maritime Academy is a tuition-free public charter school for students in grades five through 12 and also offers certification training for adults in the maritime industry. The academy was founded in 2005 and previously operated out of a Downtown building on Monroe Street. Today, 193 middle and high school students are studying marine subjects, learning to navigate a Great Lakes freighter or to play the steel drums in the school band, all while preparing for college and a possible career in the shipping industry. The new facility offers students an education using maritime and nautical themes in traditional subjects with hands-on learning in a boat building laboratory, two navigation simulators, ship-size galley, commercial laundry, and other hospitality amenities for potential positions on cruise ships and freighters. The curriculum at the academy focuses on one of the world’s most valuable resources, the navigable waterways of the Great Lakes, its islands, rivers, ecosystems, food chain and supply, recreation and impact on the region’s economy. “Our challenging curriculum and strong code of conduct set high standards for our students,” Marazon said. “We support our students with individualized attention and handson learning opportunities that keep
them engaged.” Quincy Cunningham is an example of many students who are taking advantage of the educational opportunities at the Maritime Academy. He was once a shy child who struggled with reading comprehension, Marazon said. “It opened a lot of opportunities for me and helped me to pursue a career as a veterinarian for large mammals,” Cunningham said. “When students have a passion for what they want to do, we help them pursue it,” Marazon said. After four years at the academy, Cunningham will graduate at the top of his class having earned the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He plans to attend Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. His mom, Patrece Tolbert, credits the one-on-one attention and hands-on learning experiences he received at the maritime academy for his success. “We learn more here from better teachers who work with students oneon-one with hands-on training,” said Daryl Winfree, a junior from Toledo. “There’s more attention focused on individual students in smaller classes,” said William Moore, a senior from Toledo, who plans to join the Marine Corps after graduation in June. The Maritime Academy has a staff of 30 professionals, including a licensed career tech instructor who happens to be a licensed sea captain as well, Marazon said. Rick Brown, instructor and marine CTE program director, heads a three-year career tech program for the students who also attend classes at Owens Community College. Students can earn up to 24 credit hours toward an associate degree, Brown said. The Maritime Academy of Toledo is one of only 18 maritime academies in the U.S., the only one on the Great Lakes and only middle and high school combination, Marazon said. The academy also serves an important role in retraining adult mariners and educating adults seeking to begin new careers in the maritime industry, she said.
More businesses are banking with Key. Shouldn’t you?

Marazon said the academy hosted its first fundraiser, an Admiral’s Ball and Silent Auction, on April 16 with a theme based on the sinking of Titanic.

THE RETIREMENT GUYS
ongratulations. You have reached retirement and now you are ready to enjoy the fruits of your labor. All the years of hard work and sacrifice have paid off. You have thrived and you have survived. There have been disappointments and there have been triumphs. In many ways you have struggled and in many ways you have succeeded. You have created a family, raised your children, forged a career, established a home and made a life. Congratulations again. Now what are you going to do? Keys to a successful retirement are the Three Ps: Position, Preserve and Protect. Create a plan to position retirement accounts properly. We call it The Independent Income System. To enjoy a relaxing retirement, the average retiree will still need a steady flow of income. Various investment mechanisms can be used to help produce income. It is important that issues like time frames and safety be considered. You will want to make sure your income does not run out and most retirees want to avoid high levels of risk.
April 24, 2011
This is where the preserve part comes in. The positioning is crucial to preserve the accounts for a lifetime to come. Issues like interest rates, stock market fluctuation, economic conditions, etc., should be considered in order to better preserve what you have worked so hard Mark to accumulate. Once you have Nolan positioned things properly put the finishing touches on the plan and take steps to protect all of your assets. Depending on how things play out this may be the most important thing you do. What do we need protection from? The thing many retirees are most afraid of: a health care crisis that messes up all you have done to position and preserve. There are solutions available. Make this part of the overall plan. Let’s talk about the fun stuff. Since you are retired, what will you do now
with your time? Freedom and happiness is the key to most retirees. A combination of leisure, fun and productivity can be the ingredients to a formula for a great retirement phase of life. Remember the old bumper sticker “Happiness Is ... ?” Here are some things that come to CLAIR mind: Happiness is ... O reading a BAKER good book O going to a concert O sleeping in O riding a motorcycle with the cool breeze blowing in my face O riding in a classic car O sitting on the beach O sitting on the couch watching a ball game O traveling to a foreign land O eating great food that I have never tasted before O playing with my grandkids O working on (and finishing)
a project O helping someone O making a difference in someone’s life O growing spiritually O spending time with the people I love Make your own list of happiness isms. If you want to make sure they happen and you put off your homework for the fun stuff, go back and read the two paragraphs you skipped. Happy Retirement from The Retirement Guys! O

hen the Toledo Wistert Chapter of the National Football Foundation held its 49th annual awards ceremony last month, most of the attention was centered on Ohio State Head Coach Jim Tressel, who served as the keynote speaker. While the attention toward Tressel was welldeserved given what he has meant to football in the state of Ohio, one local man honored that night didn’t get the opportunity to receive the attention he deserved for all he has meant to football here in Northwest Ohio. That man is Toledo native Jamie Knott, who together with wife Janina started the Springfield Youth Football Association in 2008 and was honored last month by the Toledo Wistert Chapter with the Junior League Coach’s Award for his contributions to local football. Starting with 90 participants in its first season, the SYFA has grown to more than 250 participants in flag football, tackle football and cheerleading. “It’s a great thing to be honored because you’re just doing something that you really enjoy doing,” Knott said in a phone interview with Toledo Free Press. “You’re not out there doing it for

GM to raise car prices due to oil, metal costs
DETROIT (AP) — General Motors Co. said April 18 it will raise car and truck prices by an average of $123 per vehicle to make up for higher oil and metal costs. The increases, which affect nearly all Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC models, will go into effect in the U.S. starting May 2. The higher prices are limited to the United States, spokesman Tom Henderson said. Higher oil and steel prices played a big role in the increase, as did the cost of other metals used to make vehicles, Henderson said. Oil prices affect the cost of plastic parts and tires, as well as filling cars with gas before they are sold. GM is not alone in hiking prices. Toyota Motor Corp. said last month
it would raise prices on most 2011 Toyota, Scion and Lexus models between 1.2 percent and 2.2 percent.
Toyota extends N. American production cuts TOKYO (AP) — Toyota Motor Corp. has extended production cuts at its North American factories into early June as it struggles to deal with parts shortages caused by the earthquake that hit Japan. The moves announced raise the likelihood of widespread model shortages at Toyota dealerships well into the summer buying season. But the company promised no layoffs and said it would be ready when parts start flowing again. Toyota said

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL TALENT
TEXACO COUNTRY SHOWDOWN
Texaco Country Showdown hunts for talent in Toledo By Emily B. Gibb
Toledo Free Press News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
Country radio station 107.7 The Wolf and Toledo Free Press are hosting a local singing competition as one of the first steps of the 30th annual Texaco Country Showdown. Contestants have an opportunity to join the contest’s storied history, which includes past winners and finalists LeAnn Rimes, Garth Brooks, John Michael Montgomery, Ricky Travino, Chris Young, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus and Sara Evans. Local competitions are taking place in every state in the continental U.S. After that winners will HART compete in state competitions and then move on to one of five regional competitions. Winners from the five regional competitions will move on the national finals at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn., to compete for a $100,000 prize. Interested performers can pick up an entry form at the 107.7 studio, 720 Water St. or find one online at www.1077wolf.com. Each contestant’s entry form, audio demo and $20 entry fee is due by May 16 and can be dropped off or mailed to the station or emailed to thewolf@ toledoradiogroup.com. Individuals and groups of up to seven people are invited to enter. “I would encourage everyone who really enjoys it, enjoys singing, to give it a try,” said Laura Hart, general manager of 107.7. “If they don’t have a demo, give us a call anyway. We don’t want to scare anyone away from participating.” To help make the entry process as easy as possible, the station will walk contestants through the forms if they have any questions, she said. All they have to do is call and the station will be happy to help. “We don’t want anyone to miss an opportunity,” Hart said. Country Showdown contacted the station about hosting a local contest. “They liked the market size. They thought Toledo had a lot of talent,” Hart said. She sent letters to prospective judges with musical experience from
a variety of backgrounds, such as music teachers, instead of local dignitaries, she said. Hart said that it’s exciting to be a part of the country music scene and showcase local talent who has a real shot at gaining national exposure. “This is a very musical town. There’s a lot going on,” she said. “Being a new station, we’re hoping this furthers the ties with the community.” Hart said the odds are good that the winner from this area could continue on in the competition past the state and regional rounds — the Toledo winner has a one in eight chance of winning the state round. Even if he, she or they lose at the state level, Toledo’s winning act will receive an autographed guitar from Jason Aldean. “[Toledo’s] just a great city with great people and the radio station there is wonderful and we wanted them to be a part of this and they
wanted to bring it to their community,” said Steve Edwards, Country Showdown’s regional producer. “Every year, we give thousands of people the opportunity to have their dream to compete in front of the family and friends and community and we provide a great experience to do that,” Edwards said. Unlike “American Idol” or other talent shows, Country Showdown judges won’t harshly critique contestants for a laugh. “We have always taken a great deal of pride in making sure all of our contests are treated fairly and with respect,” Edwards said. “Regardless of whether they win or lose, we want them to walk away with a great experience.” For more information, visit www.countryshowdown.com or www.1077wolf.com.
