LIGHTING THE FUSE

One step up ... T B here is always interesting news to be found in the weekly fl ow of life in Downtown Toledo. Two developments worth discussing this week are the exciting plans announced for the Steam Plant and City Council’s dubious vote on the Red Cross union negotiations. For far too long, the Steam Plant has stood as a symbol of our city’s inability to capitalize on its magnificent waterfront. But the news — fi rst reported April 20 by Toledo Free Press — that the YMCA and University of Toledo Medical Center have plans for the facility is a cause for cautious celebration. As reported by Caitlin McGlade, “Th e $16 million investment is a money saver for the YMCA, part of University of Toledo Medical Center’s expansion plans and the answer to developers David and Dean Ball’s goal to build downtown apartments. The building, dubbed the Water Street Station, will house 67 apartments from the third to sixth floors. The univerThomas F.POUNDS sity’s medical center will lease space from the YMCA. The deal marks the third installment of plans to spread clinics across Northwest Ohio.” Coupled with Mayor Mike Bell’s plans to renovate Promenade Park and the development of the Marina District, Toledo could finally see some progress on its long-underutilized riverfront. Progressive Councilwoman Lindsay Webb led the charge for City Council (like the Lucas County commissioners) to stick its collective nose into the labor negotiations between United Food and Commercial Workers Local 75 and the blood collection branch of the American Red Cross. At this point, Webb’s quixotic pursuits are an unsurprising facet of her approach to public service, but Councilmen Tom Waniewski and Rob Ludeman were correct in opposing the nonbinding resolution — not from disrespect to the union negotiation process but from respect for Council’s time and attention. “We stand with our Toledo workers, that’s what the resolution said and that’s what we’re asking them to do. We are supporting Toledo taxpayers in a dispute in which their employer was found to not have good cause and participated in unfair labor practices,” Webb said. “That is not something we tolerate in this city.” That’s one or two too many applications of the word “we.” As Waniewski said, “Figuring out somebody else’s contract talks is not something we should be doing. The Red Cross is a great organization and they’ve already shown that they’ve settled everywhere but Cleveland and Toledo. It was a waste of a resolution, it was a waste of our time here at City Council.” Webb may not quite be fiddling while parts of Toledo burn, but she certainly has rosin on her hands. It is possible to respect her determination and consistency, but question her priorities in asserting her more tenacious qualities. ✯

TOURISM

By John P. McCartney TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

An expected 64,000 visitors will flock to Northwest Ohio for “The Biggest Week in American Birding” festival, May 4-13 in Oregon and Port Clinton. People from all over the world attend, according to Kim Kaufman, executive director of Black Swamp Bird Observatory in Port Clinton and festival director. Last year, Kaufman said, visitors came from as far away as Spain and Australia. “The reach of this place is huge,” she said. “This wildlife area has become the most iconic area in birding in the Western Hemisphere.” The birding festival’s headquarters will be at Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center, 1750 State Park Road No. 2, Oregon, on Lake Erie about 15 minutes from Downtown Toledo. The festival, organized by Black Swamp Bird Observatory, is expected to generate close to $30 million for the Northwest Ohio economy, Kaufman said. The entire area will enjoy the benefits of the birding festival, said Larry Fletcher, executive director of the Lake Erie Shores and Islands Welcome Center in Port Clinton. “Indirectly, everyone benefits because of how tourism dollars trickle down into the economy,” Fletcher said. “People may come here for the festival in May and find out other things to do in the area, and then return later in the year. People who come here find so many other events and attractions, like the islands and the beaches, to see and return to. This area has a high concentration of family fun and recreation in a relatively small area.” In 2011, bird watchers, commonly called “birders,” reported seeing 234 species of birds during the festival; expectations this year are for 225 species. Kenn Kaufman, one of the world’s most renowned bird experts and keynote speaker for the birding festival, believes local residents should take an interest in birding. “It won’t increase your income, but it makes the world more threedimensional,” he said. “It makes life more interesting to know what’s going on. Birds live fascinating lives. Knowing about birds captures the imagination.” ■ BIRDING CONTINUES ON A7

Festival birders will be served by more than 200 volunteers, including 55 professional guides, who will give guided walks from dawn to dusk, Kim Kaufman said. She said what she “loves so much about this area is the amount of diversity in the people I see here. This has become a melting pot of all different kinds of people.” Kenn Kaufman said he has known birders as young as 9 and as old as 90. “The best birders are people who are aware, have a natural curiosity about things, have active minds, want to know ‘What’s up with that?’” he said. “The best birders are friendly, open-minded, accepting, willing to use all of their senses and can watch and listen well.” The festival will close with the celebration of International Migratory Bird Day, May 12, with a Silent Auction for Conservation scheduled at Black Swamp Bird Observatory. In 2011, the silent auction raised $20,000 for bird research, education and conservation in Northwest Ohio. Kim Kaufman said she expects to generate another $20,000 this year. The festival takes place in Northwest Ohio because it is the best place to witness spring migration of songbirds in North America, Kenn Kaufman said. The southern edge of Lake Erie acts as a barrier that birds are reluctant

to cross during migration. The birds tend to “pile up” in the woodlots surrounded by marshland on the lake’s southern edge to rest and refuel before crossing the lake. The timing of their arrival is early enough in spring that the trees have few leaves, there are no bugs and the birds fly incredibly low. Festival workshops will be held morning, afternoon and evening from May 4-11, and range in price from free to $40 per workshop. Participants are encouraged to register online. A 44-page downloadable PDF document that outlines the schedule of events is available online. The website’s home page has 30 links

The website address is http:// biggestweekinamericanbirding.com Local residents are encouraged to attend. They do not have to preregister for events like guided bird walks, family/beginner bird walks and shoreland and waterbird bird walks. “Someone who lives here locally may be interested to know that people would travel so far just for these birds,” Kenn Kaufman said. “It implies that there’s something special here. Just come out. Birders are friendly, and you’re likely to get caught up in it.” ✯

the Galapagos Islands. The fi ve Gould prints belong to Toledoans Nancy and David Kelly. The pair have been avid bird watchers for decades. Years ago when Nancy was bargain hunting through secondhand stores, she found a copy of a Gould print. She read up on the artist and learned about his importance throughout history. She was hooked. She was determined to find originals. She and David have collected at least 15 works by Gould. “It is not only the subject of the birds we’re interested in; they are artistically done,” she said. “Th ey are a good balance of botanical as well as ornithological presentation and he had an eye for giving a sense of bird habitat.” The back wall of the gallery includes another artist who labored to perfect habitat: John James Audubon. His depictions of finches, cranes, herons and others are etched with a keen attention to scientific detail. Th e other artists’ renditions of birds are less science-oriented.

One simply depicts a small bird standing alone. Two glass cases sit in the center of the room, one of which features etchings of goldfi nches by Pablo Picasso. The etchings are part of a special edition volume of a natural history book, originally published by Georges-Louis

You want to hide in your bedroom. But you don’t because it reminds you of your spouse. You want to be stronger. But you can’t stomach the idea of eating food, and haven’t for weeks. You want to scream. Cry. Go out and buy Victoria’s Secret lingerie or expensive cologne. Months could have passed since you discovered your spouse had an affair. Or years. Or just days. It doesn’t matter. When your friends look at you with those sullen eyes or pat you on the shoulder and open their lips to utter, “It’s time to get on with your life,” you suppress a desire to smack them. Started in the 1980s by a woman named Peggy Vaughan after she discovered her husband cheated, Beyond Affairs Network (BAN) comprises a chain of support groups linked by a common grief: infidelity. The network has since expanded to 15 countries and territories, reaching nearly 100 cities across the United States, five of which are in Ohio, including the recently opened chapter in Toledo. Only betrayed spouses can start a group and only those betrayed may join. For each meeting, the group leader will open a discussion on topics approaching anything from forgiveness to the stages of healing to empowering literature. The objective is to help the individual on his or her path to wellness. This may or may not lead to reuniting with his or her spouse. The organization is also deeply rooted in anonymity — you can even introduce yourself to group members with a false name. The Toledo BAN leader has asked Toledo Free Press to grant her anonymity to protect her children and her recovering family. We’ll call her Jane. She said one of the most powerful tools of the group is its ability to help people realize that they are not alone. At a related seminar she met women who bonded over their reactions to infidelity. “We found out we had spent more money on lingerie trying to deal with it in the past three months than ever before,” Jane said. “And we thought we were all going crazy — other people were repulsed by what we were doing but it was totally normal.”

Until death do us part? The divorce rate among baby boomers has doubled within the

past two decades, while the rate among younger generations has flattened, according to Susan Brown, a Bowling Green State University professor who co-wrote the paper “Gray Divorce Revolution.” She and BGSU faculty member I-Fen Lin examined data from the 1990 U.S. Vital Statistic Report and the 2009 American Community Survey. Their results recorded that one in four people who get divorced are 50 or older. A lot of this has to do with the nature of the baby boomer generation. Flip back through history and you’ll quickly make the connection — this was the first demographic that made divorce popular. Consider, then, that many of these people got remarried. Sociologists contend that you’re more likely to get divorced if you’ve been divorced before, so it follows that many people 50 or older are now exemplifying the statistic. ■ BAN CONTINUES ON A11

Over time, there is less to learn about each other so passion ebbs. “The stuff that fuels romance is desire and longing and uncertainty and if you look at all the great romances in history through literature they all have these qualities,� DeMaris said. “And marriage is about obligation and predictability.

Growing despite despair Anne Bercht knows that there is no buffer. The organizer of Beyond Affairs Network, who took over for Vaughan in the mid-2000s, travels the country to give seminars on how to take your life back after an affair or how to prevent affairs in the first place. “Our culture has created per-

ceptions about aff airs and why they happen and most of those are false.

That night her husband confessed to her that he’d been having an affair. Years later, the two are back together and have met with hundreds of troubled spouses. She went back to school.

A12. ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS ■ BAN CONTINUED FROM A11 Bercht could offer numerous accounts of individuals who want to come to BAN meetings. They drive to the site of the meeting. They try to get out of the car. But instead, they sit in their cars. And wait until the meeting lets out. And leave. This reaction is wrapped up in the stigma that marks people who have suffered from spousal betrayal. “There is hope that you can have a monogamous marriage by being uninformed [about others’ affairs] so when it happens to someone else we tend to make some judgements,” she said. “If I only had a penny for every time I heard ‘I wonder what you did to cause your husband to have an affair’ or ‘I know how men are with sex!’” Those who have not experienced this tend to shrink away when they hear about affairs. They tend to avoid the word altogether. It’s almost as though they are afraid it will happen to them if they hang around for too long, Bercht said. Another misperception commonly faced by members of BAN involves the rate at which their friends expect them to ditch their grief. It could take a minimum of two years to recover. Bercht recommends a victim of infidelity not make any decisions in the three months following the news. But all too often, Bercht said, friends will try to talk logically about “being a smart person” or “everything becoming OK soon.” She said the victim’s life is falling apart. He or she doesn’t need this. Reacting to an affair is like reacting to a death. This is, in fact, the death of a relationship as both parties know it. Friends who have never experienced affairs don’t understand that the victim has to go through the stages of grieving and may often suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Bercht said. “If only people would treat it the

way that they treat the loss of a spouse to death or a loss of a child,” she said. “If you lost a child, no one would ever come to you three months later and say ‘Why are you so sad? Your kid is gone — it’s time to get on with your life.’”

Do you really complete me? Bercht recalls a marriage counseling exercise that required she and her husband to mash together a hunk of yellow and a hunk of blue PLAYDOH to make green. The combination of the two colors symbolized the unity of marriage. But this didn’t seem right. “Don’t tell me at this point that I’m nothing but a half-green and Anne ceases to exist,” she said. “Each person has to avoid losing their identity in their marriage. People get too enmeshed in their identity as who they are as a husband, father, wife, mother and the very things that were special and unique about them — the thing that their spouse was attracted to in the first place — they tend to lose sight of.” The “you complete me” mentality of relationships is what Bercht tries to move away from. She teaches affair prevention seminars across the country and this is one of her major points. The program encourages couples to embrace their differences. This is about having a voice in the relationship and how to lighten preexisting baggage. A lot of Bercht’s job is to deconstruct the misconceptions surrounding relationships. Another loaded falsehood, she said, is expecting that one spouse can change the other. She leads a “take back your life retreat” for the betrayed and said most people respond with similar desires when she asks what they want. “They say ‘I want my spouse to change this, that and the other thing’,” she said. “I spend a lot of time saying, ‘You don’t have control of that; what do you want without your spouse?” By the end of the weekend retreat,

the individuals see that they need to make themselves whole and make improvements on themselves. And the next thing she knows, the betrayed and his or her spouse are signing up for couples’ seminars. She said that betrayed spouses have the tendency to obsess over saving the marriage at first — but this comes across as needy. When they finally reach the “aha” moment and realize they cannot

By Sarah Ottney TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Spring planting season is just around the corner, but an upcoming Ready U session will help area gardeners think ahead to harvest time, including safe handling of produce and what to do with an overabundant crop. Directed toward home and community gardeners, “Using Your Victory Garden” will focus on food safety tips for the garden and kitchen as well as food preservation options, said Lee Richter, program assistant in urban horticulture with the Ohio State University Extension office in Lucas County. Also presenting will be Patrice Powers-Barker, program assistant in family and consumer science with the OSU Extension office. The free, hourlong session is set for 7 p.m. April 30 at The Andersons Activity Room, 1833 S. HollandSylvania Road in Maumee. The presentation RICHTER will be the final Ready U event of the season. Richter will share tips on food safety and preparation, while Powers-Barker will discuss preservation options, including canning, drying and freezing. The session will cover the basics and discuss community resources where gardeners can find more indepth information and instruction. “We just want to give an overview so people can decide what will work best for their own gardens and kitchens,” Powers-Barker said. The session won’t be a tutorial in preservation methods, but rather a discussion of options, Powers-Barker said. “If it’s a great year for tomatoes, what are you going to do with all those? We will talk about where to share them if you want to donate, ways to prepare them fresh and also preservation,” Powers-Barker said. The OSU Extension’s horticulture hotline is staffed 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. At other times, callers can leave a message that will be returned. The number is (419) 578-6783. Ready U kits containing emergency preparedness materials as well as smoke detectors will be given to the first 50 attendees. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor for the Ready U program.

WAR OF 1812 BICENTENNIAL

O Canada, you stood on guard for thee

W

e Americans often tease our northern neighbors for their relative passivity, but how many of you knew that they fought alongside the British and Native Americans in the War of 1812, eh? One such distinguished Canadian was John Richardson, a “gentleman volunteer.” His adventures throughout our Northwest Territory are amusing and insightful. Richardson’s transition from student to soldier began at age 15. One of his first and fondest thrills occurred in August1812 when he was selected to raise the British colors over Fort Detroit after helping to defeat U.S. Gen. William Hull’s forces. This privilege, at such a young age, ignited his patriotism. Richardson’s military career would span the next 25 years and through it he would weave his extensive writing profession as well. In January 1813 he found himself

along the Raisin River in Monroe, Mich. The night before that battle, someone took advantage of young Richardson, by switching the working firelock on his musket with a faulty one. He relates that in the midst of combat, Frank “It flashed in the pan, I tried it again, and again it flashed. I never was so vexed — to think that I was exposed to the torrent of fire from the enemy without having the power to return a single shot, quite disconcerted the economy of my pericranium.” I told you he was an academic. Soon, Richardson was among those storming U.S. Col. Dudley’s men across from Perrysburg’s Fort Meigs. Twenty-seven years later he revisited the site for William Harri-

son’s presidential rally. Among 40,000 revelers, Richardson was the lone Canadian representative and was flattered to be received by Harrison “in that spirit of true and generous courtesy which is ever characteristic of the soldier.” KURON Richardson’s next stop was Fort Stephenson in Fremont. As that moonlit attack wound down, he found himself isolated after laying for hours in a muddy ravine near the fort. Surmising that the rest of his troops had withdrawn, he did likewise. “I stumbled over the dead body of a soldier … the noise occasioned by my fall put the enemy once more on alert … not an individual, save myself, was exposed to their aim … although the balls whistled round my ears in every

direction, and hissed through the long grass. … I did not sustain the slightest injury … I found that my retreat had been well-timed, for the troops were already in motion toward the boats.” As Richardson collapsed into his departing vessel he discovered a bottle of port wine which gave him, “the most delicious moments of repose I recollect ever having experienced.” Richardson returned to Canada fighting in the Battle of the Thames near Chatham, Ontario. Here, just moments into the conflict, the British and Canadians were taken prisoner. He explained, “A strong body of U.S. cavalry (was) coming toward us. At the head was a stout elderly man who galloped forward; and brandishing his sword over his head, cried out with stentorian lungs ‘Surrender, surrender, it’s no use resisting, all your people are taken, and you had better surrender.’” Rich-

ardson did but not before he buried his musket into the deep mud as an act of sentimental defiance. Richardson was marched to Frankfort, Ky., and imprisoned; he returned to his Canadian homeland a year later. Despite his stellar military career and prolific writing, Richardson spent the rest of his life as a man of culture living on the wages of a peasant. His fame arrived postmortem. Sadly, just days before his death, he was overheard telling his lone friend, “Hector, we must part or starve,” and indeed his dog was sold in order to purchase his last meals. Richardson’s books are still available and many provide a clear window into the history of this era. ✯ Frank Kuron is author of the War of 1812 book, “Thus Fell Tecumseh.” Email him at kuronpubs@bex.net.

DEVELOPMENT

VIEW FROM THE GULCH

By Caitlin McGlade TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

After years of obstacles and amended plans, developers announced that the old Toledo Edison Steam Plant will soon become a new home for apartments, a YMCA and a family physician practice. The $16 million investment is a money saver for the YMCA, part of University of Toledo Medical Center’s expansion plans and the answer to developers David and Dean Ball’s goal to build apartments Downtown. The building, dubbed the Water Street Station, will house 67 apartments from the third to sixth floors. The YMCA will close its Summit Y in North Toledo and transfer memberships to the new site. The Summit building has become a financial burden, especially after government funding dried up and membership plummeted to 600. That’s down from at least 1,000 memberships about five or six years ago, said Todd Tibbits, CEO/president of the YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo. Only 15 percent of the Summit Y’s members live in that community, with many members coming from work in the Downtown business district. Tibbits said the Downtown spot should draw more members based on those figures. Tibbits said the new site would be more accessible to three lowincome apartment complexes in the area: Riverfront apartments, Vistula Manor Apartments and Port Lawrence Homes. Toledoans living in these complexes will get free or reduced-cost YMCA memberships. The YMCA will save about $140,000 a year by moving because it will no longer have to pay the hefty utility bills that come along with the Summit building. The nonprofit shells out $400,000 a year in utility costs for Summit Plaza, which contains the present YMCA building. The original plans for Water Street Station, drafted in 2006, would have

spruced up the old plant for 75 upscale apartments. The blueprints also included 34 townhouses along the building’s south side. Apartments were slated for move-in by fall 2007. When that didn’t happen, the date was pushed back to March 2008. Meanwhile, then-Mayor Carty Finkbeiner filed a lawsuit demanding that the developers either start construction immediately or hand over the property to the city. The last two years of the Finkbeiner administration spelled trouble for the developers, David Ball said. “I spent more time battling with the mayor than I did working on this project,” he said. The lawsuit was cleared when

Mayor Mike Bell took office. This January, the developers commenced conversations with the YMCA and the UTMC. The original plans for the apartment complex called for an exercise facility, so the combination seemed to click, Ball said. The university’s medical center will lease space from the YMCA. The deal marks the third installment of plans to spread clinics across Northwest Ohio. The first clinic opened at Westfield Franklin Park Mall and the next will open in October at Fallen Timbers. There will be at least two others announced within the next couple of years, said Scott Scarborough, senior vice president and executive director for UTMC. Scarborough said the medical

center intends to hire at least three new employees to fill the Water Street Station location. Ball said his company, STS Management, will hire about six full-time and four to six part-time employees to service the apartments. The YMCA might need to make a few hires, Tibbits said, but Summit Y employees will just move to the riverfront spot. As for the Summit Y building, Ball bought the structure and intends to lease it to businesses or organizations. Crews will break ground in six to eight weeks. The riverfront building should be open for business by midto late 2013. “The Bell administration is ecstatic about this opportunity,” said Deputy Mayor Tom Crothers. ✯

ast week on the WSPD radio show “Eye on Your Money,” I received a call asking about the relationship between the price of a stock and the earnings of the company and why this is so important. The question made me realize that I sometimes take for granted the technical aspect of investing and think everyone knows all the terms and definitions. The price of a stock and the earnings of the underlying company have a very important relationship that will help you make the decision whether to invest or not. Actually, it is the ratio of the earnings to the price of the stock, or the P/E ratio, that is important. One of the most popular stocks is Apple (AAPL) and it is priced today at $560 a share, which is 16 times annual earnings. Another way of looking at the same ratio is that it will take Apple 16 years at current earnings to equal today’s price of $560. This may sound like a long time, but historically a P/E ratio of 16 is not considered too bad, especially considering this is a technology company. IBM, long considered the blue chip of blue chip stocks, trades at just under 15 times earnings. If more people would have stuck to only investing in companies with low P/E ratios, no one would have been burned during the dot-com bubble. I remember some stocks were trading at 600 times earnings; that’s 600 years of earnings to justify the price of the stock. That is a long time. ■ RATHBUN CONTINUES ON A17

Many of the dot-com companies didn’t have any earnings at all but people kept buying and the stock kept going up. What we commonly call “irrational exuberance.” Getting back to a reasonable P/E ratio, it has been my experience that any stock trading at less than 17 or 18 is worth looking at, along with other fundamentals of the company. ConocoPhillips, for example, is trading at less than 8 P/E. Compared to Apple, this looks like it should be twice as good an investment but you have to take into consideration the industry. Technology is more volatile than energy. Everyone needs energy but not everyone needs an iPad. Another important fundamental in looking into a stock is the volume. It is important that a stock have sufficient volume to create the liquidity needed to keep the price from being too volatile. If a stock is thinly traded and you wish to purchase or, more importantly, sell a large amount of shares, your trade could cause a serious price swing. I have personally had this happen many years ago, once on the purchase side and once on the sell side. From that point on I set my price — either selling or buying — and if I don’t get my price I don’t do the trade. A lot of volume during the day will make

The market is an irrational animal regardless of the research you do and the cautions you take. There are always “black swans” out there that no one can see coming. Regulation is always another important aspect to consider when looking at a particular company. Do you want to invest in a company that is in the regulatory sights of Congress? How about a drug company that is trying to get a new drug approved by the FDA?

THE RETIREMENT GUYS

Two strategies to implement in good markets M any investors are starting to get their investment statements for the first quarter of 2012. Have you opened your own statement yet? If not, go ahead, it’s probably good news. Wow, what an incredible start to the year the stock market had! The S&P 500 gained 12.6 percent (total return) during the first quarter of 2012. The last time the stock index gained at least 10 percent in the first quarter was 1998. (source: BTN Research). Two strategies the average investor Mark can learn from the past Nolan to make smart financial decisions about the future are to rebalance and avoid chasing performance. The problem for many investors is that when everything appears to be going well, it is easy to become complacent or worse yet, to chase performance. Remember, the past is history, it’s done and over with. Instead, apply what has been learned from the past to making better investment decisions in the future. Investments that went up recently already went up, and that doesn’t mean those investments will keep going up in the future. Remember how good technology stocks were in the late ’90s before the 2000 crash? Or how easy it appeared to be to make money in real estate in 2007, before the 2008 crash? Mark Twain once said, “History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme a lot.” If history continues to repeat itself, the stock market could do great the rest of this year. According to www.seasonalcharts.com, from 1900 through 2004 an election year has historically been a good year in the stock market. Further supporting a strong stock market in election years according to the Stock Trader’s Almanac, the S&P 500 has risen in the final seven months in 13 of the past 15 presidential elections years since 1950. Plus, overall, the stock market is still at a discount compared to its all-time high. As of March 30, the S&P 500 is currently 11 percent under its all-time closing high of 1,565 on Oct. 9, 2007 (source BTN Research). We hope history repeats itself this year and the stock market keeps going up. We recommend two strategies to follow even when the market is good. First, investors should remember to rebalance their accounts in all markets. Rebalancing is the process of selling investments that have outperformed

and buying investments that have underperformed to reset the allocation of the overall portfolio back to the original plan. This is an important but hard to follow strategy of buying low and selling high. Stick with this disciplined investment approach, even when emotions say otherwise. The emotional battle the average equity investor may be having right now is: Why change when everything seems to be making money? One easy way to remove emotions and accomCLAIR plish rebalancing in BAKER a portfolio is to set it up on an automatic change cycle, such as monthly, quarterly or yearly. This could help the average investor keep the plan on autopilot. Another option is to rebalance when the desired asset allocation changes beyond a set point. For example an investor who starts with 50 percent stocks and 50 percent bonds, may need to rebalance if stocks get more than 60 percent and bonds are now only 40 percent. This approach involves keeping a closer eye on the asset allocation of the plan to help determine when it’s time to rebalance. Second, avoid chasing performance results. We have heard over the years people say “Things look better now so I’m ready to buy,” or, “Look how good that investment has done recently, shouldn’t I buy that?” That is a good question, but we suggest that you step back for a minute before buying any investment. Is that the right strategy? Ask yourself, have the individual investment goals changed? A conservative investor, who changes investments and gets much more aggressive after seeing results already go up, can dramatically increase risk. Instead of making major changes, consider making gradual changes. Although last year’s top performing investments could be winners again this year and next, remember that at other times the best performing investments of last year turn out to be the worst performing investments the following year. Prime examples are the technology stocks before and after 2000 and the financial and real estate stocks before and after 2008. Instead, try and focus more on long-term investing based upon your own individual goals and objectives, and less on other short-term results. Chasing results can be like being the last one to show up to a party, realizing too late

the party is going to end. ✯

NATIONAL

Toledo native helped push the JOBS Act By Caitlin McGlade TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

Viewers who caught President Barack Obama on television signing the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act a couple of weeks ago were watching the culmination of a year’s worth of work for a native Toledoan. Reagan McKee Anderson, vice president of governmental affairs for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), grew up in South Toledo. Now she is a mainstay on Capitol Hill, lobbying for business advancement. “What it comes down to is me being able to take McKEE ANDERSON rather complex issues relating to the financial services industry and you’ve got five minutes to explain something to a member of Congress,” Anderson said. She harnessed that skill to push pieces of the act that the NYSE prioritized. One bill, the Onramp for Emerging Growth Companies, allows companies seeking to go public up to five years to comply with regulations such as a portion of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act that includes a require-

ment mandating an auditor’s attestation report on internal controls. The bill also allows companies to provide reduced executive compensation disclosures, lifting a restriction within the Dodd-Frank Act. The other bill, the Small Company Capital Formation Act of 2011, permits companies to raise up to $50 million in public markets without registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The present limit is $5 million. Anderson said this amount was so small that companies were not using it and she sees the new bill as an opportunity for business to “test the waters” before they launch an initial public offering. The act passed 73 to 26 in the Senate and Obama signed it April 5. Dissenters have argued that the bills lift the reins on transparency, enabling less disclosure is risky for investors and that soliciting the public for private investments could lead to more fraud. Anderson, however, is pleased with the act. “It was such a great honor to be in the Rose Garden, standing next to the CEO of the stock exchange, a company that is recognized around the world, and to watch the president sign into law something I’ve worked on every day for the past year,” she said. Anderson didn’t always see herself as a future stock exchange expert. She graduated from

Notre Dame Academy in 1995 and attended Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism for a magazine journalism degree. After briefly working for a public relations firm in Toledo that no longer exists, Anderson moved to Georgia to assume the role of director of congressional affairs for the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta. After completing nearly four years of work there, she became a legislative assistant for Mel Martinez, then U.S. Senator from Florida. She served as his liaison for the Senate banking committee. About a year and a half after she started that job, she took a position at Fannie Mae for two and a half years, followed by an associate vice president position at the Private Equity Council. She has worked for the NYSE since 2009. Anderson said being a strong writer was helpful to her entire career. “I knew in college I was interested in journalism because I love to write,” she said. “You have to be able to write.” Amid the commutes from New York and D.C., the long hours traipsing around Capitol Hill and the various Congresspeople and legislative staff members with whom she wrangles on a daily basis, she has not forgotten Toledo. Anderson doesn’t come home enough, she said. But when she does, she always hits

Bluesman Ellis to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Speak No Evilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Evolution By Vicki L. Kroll TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER vkroll@toledofreepress.com

After watching The Beatles on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ed Sullivan Show,â&#x20AC;? 8-year-old Tinsley Ellis begged his parents for a guitar. But it was the King of the Blues who made him want to really learn to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really into the music of the British invasion, like The Animals and The Yardbirds, Rolling Stones â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they always talked about B.B. King,â&#x20AC;? Ellis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And an older guy said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, if you like that bluesy kind of music and that twangy guitar, you need to check out B.B. King.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I

said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is a B.B. King?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;And around the time I was asking that question, [King] came and played at a hotel in North Miami Beach where I grew up in south Florida and did a teen show,â&#x20AC;? he recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. King did an hourlong set for kids. And I actually got a chance to meet him, and it just knocked me out. It floored me the way he would sing and then he would imitate with the guitar playing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the guitar playing was sort of a musical interpretation of the words.â&#x20AC;? As if meeting a legend wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inspiring enough, the 14-year-old took home a piece of the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[King] was playing Lucille and

bearing down on [his guitar], and his E string popped. We were in the front row, so we reached up and got that string and divided it amongst us, as kids do, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the only one who kept the string,â&#x20AC;? Ellis said during a call from his Atlanta home. Since his 1988 Alligator Records debut, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgia Blue,â&#x20AC;? the electrifying guitar slinger and his searing style have earned quite the reputation. Rolling Stone compared him to Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. And he even toured with King.

The singer-songwriter will play an 8 p.m. concert May 6 at Evolution, 519 N. Reynolds Road. Tickets are $18 and $15 for Black Swamp Blues Society members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We count on these blues societies like the Black Swamp Blues Society to keep us on the road and to keep their members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; new members and prospective members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; aware that we are even coming to town. This will be a good night,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ellis will play songs from his 2009 disc, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speak No Evil.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The themes of blues songs are timeless,â&#x20AC;? the 54-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are always going to be losing jobs; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always going to be taxes; people are always going to be breaking up with their loved ones; people die â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those are the themes of the blues.â&#x20AC;? That said, Ellis aspires to take people away from their worries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope they leave the show with the feeling that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some relief. We need relief; we need the kind of relief that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave you with a hangover, unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blues hangover.â&#x20AC;? â&#x153;Ż

‘Lenting it grow’ is akin to pun-ishment

M

y Aunt Joan asked, “Is that a playoff beard?” “No,” said Kacee, my 8-year-old daughter. “Did you lose a bet?” she queried and Kacee responded hastily with another “No!” “Why in the world would you grow that beard?” my dear aunt asked a final time, and I pointed and nodded to Kacee, giving her the OK, playing the straight man to the theatrics.

Lenten promise/sacrifice “My dad gave up had greatly backfired, shaving for Lent, he is that irony and karma ‘Lenting it grow’ ... get teamed up against me to it?” giggled as Kacee. teach a lesson. My Aunt Joan Catholics, as a show chuckled in the only of contrition and faith, way she could. She is an elect to give up, forfeit elementary teacher at and or stop one tiny a local Catholic school, vice as a symbol of and is probably the best Jeremy BAUMHOWER our beliefs for the 40 Catholic I have ever met. Then I shared this story of how my days prior to Easter, aka Lent. These

Lenten sacrifices normally consist of kids giving up candy, adults giving up fast food or snacks — normally they revolve around one’s diet. In rare cases Catholics may chose to tackle something bigger — a life change, like quitting smoking or drinking or, in the very rarest of cases, forgoing on premartial sex. Since I don’t smoke, wasn’t going to give up the drink, and am divorced but dating a beautiful woman, the whole sex thing wasn’t really an option, so I decided to take a little levity and wear my sacrifice on my face. I chose 40 days of not shaving — I Lent it grow. A brief facial hair history of myself would show that I am not the manliest of men when it comes to

growing a beard. For starters, my five o’ clock shadow takes about four days to grow. There are a couple of spots on my face that I am sure do not have any hair follicles, so it looks incredibly weird when I try to grow a beard. To make it even more confusing, the hair on my head is super thick, full, curly and comes in a variety of colors from brown, red and now gray. So the attempted beard featured more colors than a GLAAD flag. The manly man has to shave every day and can grow a beautiful beard within 72 hours. That same facial hair takes me weeks to grow and never looks good; I appear more of a meth head than a part-time Catholic. ■ MEDIA CONTINUES ON A23

This was the look I was choosing to wear as a symbol for a man who gave his life for my many sins. I created a pun for my promise. By Day 21 the whole “hoarder” look was haunting me, people were starting to glare and trying to figure out if I had lost my mind, my home or my health. I think many were surprised when they saw I had a full mouth of teeth. I volunteered to pour beers for a charity at the Miranda Lambert concert. The many faces I recognized failed to recognize me back, people from my high school, the neighborhood, ex coworkers would glare as I said “hello” to them by name. I would then inform

them of my “Lent it grow” promise and they would snicker and chuckle and I would weirdly be entertained, almost satisfied by wearing a Catholic pun on my face. The third week also welcomed the unplanned-for side effects of growing a beard for the first time, “the itchies.” My job has an incredibly demanding schedule where I get up at 2 a.m. to work. As a father of four, that means my sleep is in limited supply. I average around four-to-five hours a day, max. The one thing I was not prepared for was the feeling of an overgrown, not maintained patchy beard and how it felt against my 400 count cotton pillow case. The combination is not the picture perfect scenario one would draw up to get more sleep, in fact my hours of sleep were pretty much cut in half. If you can now picture by the end, I had a full patched-in beard of many colors, my eyes were heavy due to the lack of sleep and I was tired of

my own created “Lent it grow” quip. I had shared my sacrifice with so many people, including my children that there was no way I could shave it early. In the only way the Good Lord works, or simply the sweet bite of Karma, my Lenten pun had become PUNishment. On Easter Sunday, after a feast of HoneyBaked Ham, Stanley’s kielbasa, cheesy potatoes and Paula Deen’s corn casserole, I decided to shave. In less than five minutes, and after a purchase of a beard trimmer, I was back to my bare-faced self. When I rejoined the dinner, my youngest, almost 6-yearold daughter, Joeli, kissed me and whispered that she liked the “hobo” version of me better (“It covered more of your ugly”) — and I thank God for my children every day? It was like Jesus whispered the joke himself. ✯ Jeremy can be followed via Twitter @ Jeremytheproduc.
