Ms. Dixon goes to Washington O

ne of the most interesting chapters in Toledo Free Press history may be headed to the United States Supreme Court. Almost exactly five years ago, Toledo Free Press published a column by Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller, “Gay rights and wrongs,” that discussed discrepancies in domestic partner benefits following the University of Toledo’s merger with the Medical College of Ohio. “As a middleaged, overweight white guy with graying facial hair, I am America’s ruling demographic, so the gay rights struggle is something I experience secondhand, like my black friends’ struggles and my wheelchair-bound friend’s struggles,” he wrote. His lucid point was that discrimination is as alien to him as the power of flight; he can relate to being hated for a lot of things, but skin color, Thomas F. Pounds sexuality and physical handicap are not among them. In no way did Miller equate race, sexuality and physical challenges; there is no spectrum that can contain all those variations, is there? Crystal Dixon soon sent in a letter, “Gay rights and wrongs: another perspective.” She identified herself by email as “Associate Vice President for Human Resources, University of Toledo and Elder/Minister, End Time Christian Fellowship, Toledo.” “I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are ‘civil rights victims’,” she wrote. “Here’s why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman. I am genetically and biologically a Black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended. Daily, thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle. ... “God created humans with an inalienable right to choose. There are consequences for our choices, including those who violate God’s divine order.” Soon after the publication of Dixon’s letter, UT President Lloyd Jacobs sent a statement to Toledo Free Press that said, “[Dixon’s] comments do not accord with the values of the University of Toledo. It is necessary, therefore, for me to repudiate much of her writing and to make this attempt to clarify our values system.” Dixon was fired, leading to a court case, dismissals and appeals that continue to this day. Robert Muise, American Freedom Law Center attorney, recently told One NewsNow that Dixon was punished by UT for holding “traditional religious beliefs.” “Muise and the American Freedom Law Center filed a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court last month on behalf of Dixon. Muise says a public university has fired a Christian from a management position ‘because their beliefs and values do not comport with the so-called diversity at the university.’ He says Dixon’s case could set a precedent for government employees because lower courts have been divided over such free-speech cases.” Miller and I have maintained that while Dixon’s views on gay people are repulsive, she had every right to express those views under America’s laws. n POUNDS CONTINUES ON 4

A Toledo tradition since 2005 n POUNDS CONTINUED FROM 3 I also believe that UT had every right to terminate her employment and Dixon should have accepted that as the consequence of speaking out while serving in a position that presumably demands tolerance. Miller disagrees, saying, “I know there are many shades of gray to this conversation, but the simplest reduction is this: Dixon was fired for expressing her opinion. That’s not supposed to happen in America. That the punishment was doled out by a university makes it that much more offensive. How many UT employees are going to rush to send letters or comments on controversial topics? The effect of the Dixon firing is a chilling of free speech rights. We can argue about common sense and employee loyalty and all the nuances of this case, but to reiterate, someone was fired n MILLER CONTINUED FROM 3 During the performance, a slide show ran through images from the orchestra’s career: marquees showing its names, guest appearances from celebrities, images of Johnny and Jerry progressing from young men to seasoned conductors. The images brought Johnny into the hall and kept his spirit very much entwined with the music. After spins through “Lara’s Theme” and Miller’s arrangement for “Danny Boy,” Zmuda returned for one of the evening’s highlights, his reading of Darin’s “Clementine.” The song requires a performance of humor and pathos that is almost acting. It is the story of a “chubby miner’s daughter” who is walking a herd of cows over a river footbridge. “The old bridge trembled/Then disassembled” Zmuda sang, employing bubble-blowing trills and Darin’s trademark “hup hup!” to sing the song with its darkly funny lyrics (“Hey, I’m no swimmer/but were she slimmer/I might

for speaking her mind, and how can exceptions be made to free speech? Dixon did not yell ‘fire’ in a crowded gay bathhouse, she expressed her mostly religious-based beliefs in a guest column. Dixon voluntarily took a stand in a newspaper and has paid a terrible price.” With the case potentially in the U.S. Supreme Court, this is a conversation that will continue on; as we know firsthand, the wheels of justice can turn incredibly slowly. That Dixon still has avenues to pursue her claim proves the notion that her free speech rights have many avenues of protection, even if the ultimate outcome for her does not change. O Thomas F.

have saved that Clementine” and “I wasn’t nervous/Until the service/They held for Clementine,” Zmuda sang with a smile. It was not an impersonation of Darin, but an adoption of his mannerisms that Zmuda made his own. The audience responded strongly to a medley of songs about girls (“Margie,” “Sweet Sue, Just You,” “Marie,” “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue,” “Sweet Georgia Brown” and a rousing “Hello Dolly” and Miller’s “Tuxedo Junction.”) It is a tough task to single out individual musicians in such a tight orchestra, but I was duly impressed by Tim Vesey, who played alto sax, clarinet and flute, trumpet player Dave Tippett and bass player John Dana. Drummer Bob Johnson played his rolls and fills with a force and drive that men one-third his age should envy and emulate. After wrapping up with “We’ll Meet Again,” “Thanks For The Memories” and a version of Miller’s “In The Mood” that rocked the audience (and could

have gone on forever, as far as the audience was concerned), the orchestra took its bows and closed the show. It was a major honor to play a minor role in the evening and a great privilege to hear the JKO play live; it is an opportunity I strongly encourage Toledoans to pursue. If nothing else, the memories will be preserved on CDs and the TV special, scheduled to air New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day on Buckeye CableSystem Channel 58. Mark your calendars to relive the memories with those of us who were lucky enough to be there, lost in the music of Darin, Bennett, Sinatra and Vera Lynn — singing of love, America and a girl named Clementine who may still be out there, pushing bubbles through the water as her story reverberates in song.

A Toledo tradition since 2005

June 9, 2013


By Bailey G. Dick

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

D. Michael Collins stands in front of a line of coffee dispensers at a local café, reading each label carefully before pouring a little bit of each blend into his cup. The Toledo City Councilman and latest addition to the mayoral race likes to try a little bit of everything. Collins, who has represented District 2 on City Council since 2007, has also been a college professor, a union president and was a police officer with the Toledo Police Department (TPD) for nearly three decades. Although he has spent the past several years as a politician, Collins said he sees himself as a mixture of his many roles. “It’s hard to divorce myself from the career that I spent 28 years in. I don’t see how that’s possible, frankly,” Collins said. “Although I’ve been a college professor for 10 years, too. So I have a multiplicity.” This is Collins’ second attempt to become Toledo’s mayor. He came in fourth place in the 2009 election. “When you lose an election, you learn a lot more about the process than you do when you win,” Collins said. “Having lost the election in 2009, I think I carry into 2013 valuable lessons as to a campaign and addressing the issues.” But the decision to run didn’t come easy. After being prodded by members of the community, Collins decided to pay for a poll to see how voters planned to vote. “The polling came out favorable, and I was not even a candidate at the time,” he said of the results. More valuable than any poll, according to Collins, was the opinion of his wife, Sandy. “She said to me one evening at supper, ‘Will we look across the table from each other one year from now and ask this question: ‘Why didn’t we run?’ Because that’s the bottom line, and I think that made our decision. That was the moment when it all came together,” he said.

Hometown connection

Collins said he is deeply connected to the city he hopes to lead this fall. “I’m very proud to say I’m a lifelong resident of the city of Toledo, and I do mean lifelong. The only time I’ve ever been separated from the city of Toledo was when I was in the Marine Corps,” he said. Collins, the son of an Irish immigrant, grew up in the city’s “chal-

lenged” South End and attended Edward Drummond Libbey High School. Growing up, Collins said, “I was afforded opportunities in the city of Toledo to pursue a profession, to achieve an education to the point I have an MBA, to have my children educated in the city of Toledo, and to be a lifelong resident.”

Safety issues

With a nod to his years as a police officer, Collins announced his candidacy for mayor of Toledo on May 15 outside the shuttered TPD Northwest District Station, which he vowed to reopen within 90 days if elected. He said the decision to launch his campaign there was no coincidence. “I was introduced to the practice of law enforcement with a concept that is no longer available in the city of Toledo, and that’s called beat integrity. Officers are assigned specific geographical areas … and those officers are responsible for the events that take place in that area,” Collins said. “Northwest District Station fit well into that foundation. The officers know the residents, know the business people and they form a strong partnership. And that isn’t going on in the city of Toledo today, and it’s time that we turn to that fundamental concept.” Collins expressed concern about a number of decisions made by the city to address crime, including the purchase of video surveillance cameras and the number of patrol officers TPD has on staff. “Neighborhood safety is not being addressed,” Collins said. “Our crime stats over the past three years are completely unacceptable.”

Collins makes second run for mayor’s office

‘The Challenger’

Collins has brought his questioning skills from the police force to City Council chambers. “My reputation is that I am ‘The Challenger’ in City Council because I ask questions,” Collins said. “It’s characteristic of my 28 years and realworld experience as a police officer.” Known for his questioning on spending and ethics issues, Collins insists he’s not the city’s resident watchdog. “I perhaps ask more questions than anybody else. But I really do not consider myself the watchdog of City Council,” he said. “I am very diligent about my work, and it is important to me. The steps that I take are not steps as a watchdog, but steps I take to support, or not support, specific issues as they come before Council in terms of the government operations.” n COLLINS CONTINUES ON 7


D. Michael Collins said he will reopen the Northwest District Police Station within 90 days if he is elected mayor.

June 9, 2013


Colleagues and opponents

One person who has worked closely with Collins is Councilman Tom Waniewski. Waniewski and Collins were elected to City Council the same year but have known each other since Waniewski was a reporter with Channel 13 and Collins was with TPD. “He works hard. He’s in the office about 60 hours a week,” Waniewski said. “We used to talk just about every weekend about issues. Those BELL c o nv e r s at i o n s don’t happen as much as I wish they still did.” While Waniewski said he supported Collins when he ran for mayor four years ago, he said he is waiting until after the September primary to make an endorsement decision.

Mayor Mike Bell, who has sparred with Collins on several issues, said he does not foresee Collins faring well in the election. “I think that the problem Mike runs into, especially when dealing with me, is that he doesn’t realize he may not be the smartest person in the room,” Bell said. “If you really pay attention, he appears in his own mind to be an expert in everything, and that’s an impossibility. That’s something that rubs people the wrong way.” Bell said “just about anyLOPEZ body could have the potential” to be a successful mayor, but cited concerns about Collins’ ego and “his concept that he thinks he knows more than anyone.” Mayoral candidate and Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez said a lot

of her work with Collins is providing information he may need to question some of the operations dealing with the city and the county. “I believe I’m the only elected official that has the track record of providing services that actually work for the people,” she added. Alan Cox, a neighborhood development specialist and union president who is also running for mayor, said he has mixed feelings about Collins as a potential mayor. “I know he has real strengths in terms of concerns and focuses, but there are some things I would have some concerns about,” he said, but declined to elaborate. Still, Cox said he could potentially vote for Collins if he himself doesn’t survive the primary. “It’s going to be someone I have to work with, and I think I could have a good working relationship with him,” he said. Other mayoral hopefuls are Libertarian candidate Michael Konwinski and perennial candidate Opal Covey.

Collins has big plans for economic development in the part of the city he calls home. “The most important part of the city is Southwyck,” Collins said. “If we lose Southwyck, we lose our city.” Collins also is concerned about the state of the Marina District, calling the biographies of the site’s developers “anemic.” “I fully intend that, if substantial development doesn’t occur, that we will find within our budget the ability to take that property back for the price that we received for it, and that’s $3.8 million. I will not compromise on that part of the Marina District.” At the heart of Collins’ plan to prevent Toledo from becoming what he described as “Detroit South,” is a development strategy called “meta-planning.” The concept “takes the strategic plans of our region’s economic development organizations as a starting point and brings them together in a

I think that the problem Mike runs into, especially when dealing with me, is that he doesn’t realize he may not be the smartest person in the room.” — Toledo Mayor MIKE BELL single plan that seeks to avoid duplication and identify any gaps that need to be filled,” according to University of Toledo President Emeritus Dan Johnson, who was a crucial part of introducing the plan in 2007. “It is a highly collaborative and participatory approach where collaboration and participation really count,” Johnson said. Collins said he hopes to implement meta-planning with Johnson. “I fully intend on seeking Dr. Johnson’s assistance, because his contract will be completed in June of this year to come forward and resurrect that meta-plan, because I believe it makes sense,” Collins said. “We’re not going to reinvent a wheel, we’re going to go with a dynamic program that never should have been walked away from to begin with.” Johnson said he would be in favor of implementing meta-planning, but that he isn’t “planning to work for any specific mayoral candidates but to work for and support those issues that I believe will benefit our region and community.”

Campaigning differently

Collins is running without a party affiliation and plans on spending very little money on his campaign. “I’ve been an independent all my life,” Collins said. “I believe that I can, as an independent, with a true bipartisan approach … bring about a


consensus between those differences, between those political ideologies.” Collins is also realistic about his finances. And he is purposely avoiding major fundraisers. According to the Lucas County Board of Elections, Collins began his political career and his bid for a City Council seat in 2007 with $2,000. According to the most recent paperwork on file for Collins’ campaign, he is going into this year’s mayoral election with less than $5,000 — most of which is listed as a loan from his wife. “I realize I will never raise the money that will be available to the other candidates in this race,” he said. “We’re not doing any $1,000-a-plate, $500-a-plate benefits or funding. Frankly, I find it obscene to ask people for that kind of money, because only logic tells me that if you’re getting that kind of money, there’s strings attached. And I will not have any strings attached to me.” Collins anticipates a “broad spectrum” of people as his voter base, and said the city’s labor unions “are going to play a major role in this election.” Collins led one of those unions, the Toledo Police Patrolman’s Association, for 10 years. But he is not worrying about largescale campaign issues for now. “I have enough work to do,” Collins said. “I’m like the David in this race versus the Goliath.”

Looking forward

Collins will make the rounds through Toledo’s neighborhoods during the next few months, much like he did in the central part of the city during his stint as a police officer. But instead of looking for criminals, he will ring doorbells of potential voters. “We will probably never see the day where we have television, but I will do commercials on the doorsteps of every household I can possibly visit during this campaign,” Collins said.

TPS performance audit revision projects $90.8 million in savings By John P. McCartney

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

In her consulting firm’s presentation of Toledo Public Schools’ (TPS) revised performance audit on June 4, Evergreen Solutions’ Linda Recio informed the Board of Education that it could expect $10.7 million less in savings than what Evergreen projected two months earlier. The original projection of $101.5 million dropped to $90,784,870. Evergreen also eliminated two recommendations and made significant dollar revisions to five others, Recio said. Recio attributes the decrease in savings to additional data the board “wanted us to use that we didn’t have the first time. Also, [the savings] vary across six or seven recommendations, all of which are affected by [the new data].” Projected total net savings range from $16,680,432 for the first year to $18,756,206 for the fourth year with a one-time savings of $103,700.

Eliminated recommendations

Evergreen’s elimination of two recommendations resulted in a loss of $4,146,625 in savings. The two eliminated recommendations were: O Recommendation 3-16 — the reduction of school psychologists from 24 to 15 for a five-year projected savings of $4,131,540. O Recommendation 9-9 — the elimination of five surplus and unused vehicles in the Safety and Security Department for a one-time projected savings of $15,085. The audit reported that in many cases, employees receive supplemental pay for tasks they no longer perform while others are hired and paid supplementals (the stipend paid for performing duties as varied as chess club adviser to basketball coach) to perform those tasks. As a result, Evergreen reported that TPS frequently pays for the same work twice. In the original audit, Evergreen, using the figure of $6,224,958 and eliminating a minimum of 25 percent of supplementals (the total number of contracts of additional stipends), reported that TPS would save about $16 million annually or $7.8 million over the audit’s five-year projection. However, Evergreen estimated far greater savings if supplemental duties underwent careful scrutiny of seven factors it identified. In completing the revised audit, Recio said Matthew Cleland, project coordinator, provided Evergreen five different sets of data regarding the total number of additional stipends.

“Some of this [need for revision] might be Evergreen not being given sufficient data, but some of it is we just got wrong data to begin with,” Recio said. Using the most current documentation, Evergreen reported that TPS spent $3.2 million on supplemental contracts for fiscal year (FY) 2012 — $3 million less than the figure used in the original audit — and is projected to spend in excess of $3.6 million for FY 2013. Recio said that one-year increase of $400,000 underscores the need for oversight and accountability in the completion of the tasks described in supplemental contracts. Evergreen reported that it wanted to make TPS’ board acutely aware that: O supplemental contracting costs the district funds over which little oversight and accountability are exercised and often for responsibilities that should be an expected part of normal position-related duties. O drilling down to actual costs that are certain is challenging at best. In Recommendation 3-11 of the revised audit, using the $3.6 million figure and eliminating a minimum of 25 percent of supplemental contracts, Evergreen reported that TPS would save about $900,000 annually or $4.5 million for five years, a $3.3 million difference in what Evergreen projected in the original audit. Again, Evergreen reported tha with careful scrutiny, TPS could save significantly more money.

Wrong count

Recio said Evergreen was originally given the wrong count of clerical staff at schools. Recio said when Evergreen received the adjusted count, projected reduction in clerical staff at the elementary level went from 15 to a minimum of 12.6 employees. Recio said the savings became $3.1 million, down from the original projection of $5.1 million. Recio also said the decrease in projected savings in assistant principal (AP) salaries is a prime example of Evergreen’s making a recommendation based on inaccurate data. Evergreen was originally given an AP salary of $92,000, which has since been reduced to $85,000. Recio said that when that $7,000 difference is multiplied by the recommended reduction of 15 AP positions, and then multiplied by five years, taxpayers will see a reduction of $525,000 in savings, from the original projection of $6.9 million to the revised projection of $6.4 million.

Implementation plan

Recio presented the board with four implementation strategies:

O Create an implementation chart that includes the recommendation, steps for action, a timeline, the person or people responsible for implementation, committee comments and recommended modifications and the completed implementation.

O Create an implementation committee of 15-20 BOE members, staff and community members in which committee members understand that they are a monitoring, not a decisionmaking, group. O Monitor results and savings.

O Share results with the community in a quarterly report card. Board President Brenda Hill said she hopes to have the skeleton for creating the implementation committee ready at the board’s regularly scheduled business meeting June 25. O

A Toledo tradition since 2005


By Paige Shermis

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

In conjunction with the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall’s stay in Toledo, the Toledo Ohio Vietnam Era Veterans Appreciation Event took place on June 5. The event, at the University of Toledo Savage Arena, included the Opening Ceremony for the Wall’s stay in Toledo and an Honor Roll Call for all veterans in attendance. Duke Wheeler, a Christmas tree farmer from Whitehouse, helped organize the event and bring the Traveling Wall to Toledo. “I [want] to show these veterans how much we appreciate their sacrifices and to honor them. They fought a war that was a bad war, and that was not their fault. We should have honored them when they came home,” Wheeler said. The Opening Ceremony began with the presentation of colors. Next, the Maumee High School Select Singers sang the National Anthem, “Simple Gifts” and “Amazing Grace.” A prayer by Ben Snyder, south Toledo lead pastor of Cedar Creek Church followed. Marines Roy Hernandez, who served from 1963-’67, and Bob Baker, who served from 1967-’70, then performed a tribute to prisoners of war and those missing in action, with Hernandez giving a speech on those soldiers who were missing or taken prisoner as Baker rang a silver bell. A small dining table was set for one person on stage, the empty place sym-

bolizing that of all the POW/MIAs. Hernandez explained the meaning of each item on the table, from the color of the tablecloth to the lit candle. University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1958-’64, Mayor Mike Bell and U.S. Air Force Colonel Steven Nordhaus gave welcoming remarks, followed by a short video message from Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Hagel, who was invited to the ceremony but could not attend because he was out of the country, served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1967-’68. The Opening Ceremony’s keynote speaker was USMC Lt. Gen. Robert A. Tiebout, retired, who served in Vietnam from 1967-8. “The Wall is a very moving thing. The Wall came in my home in Tennessee and I dedicated it [there]. It’s so moving because when you look at it, you visualize 50,000 young men that were in their youth, the best times of their life, and didn’t hesitate a minute. They did what they had to do to do their job and maintain their freedom. They haven’t enjoyed this longevity that I have; I was fortunate. They gave it all,” Tiebout said after the ceremony. Tiebout’s speech was followed by the honor roll call, in which all Vietnam-era veterans were invited onstage to receive a special coin as their names were announced to the hall. The challenge coins, given to the veterans, are steeped in military tradition and rooted in nostalgia and membership ties. Some veterans accepted coins on behalf of themselves and their

brothers, who were killed in Vietnam. Several men’s wives also accepted coins on behalf of their husbands. After the roll call was complete, the official songs of each branch of the military (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard) were played, and the veterans were invited to stand when their branch’s song was played. Only one man stood for the Coast Guard’s song, and was met with loud applause. The evening’s master of ceremonies, Navy Lt. Haraz N. Ghanbari, USN, who serves as the military and media liaison at the University of Toledo, gave closing remarks. The ceremony ended with a live performance of “Taps” by Jeff Worthen, one of the only musicians in the area who performs the song live. Worthen served in the U.S. Army from 1964-’67. After the event, Tiebout remarked on his treatment upon returning from war. “It was not good. It was not a good situation. There were a lot of demonstrations. As a matter of fact, it was such that the uniform was not to be worn in a lot of places because of the antagonistic views of some people of the veterans,” he said. However, the way soldiers and veterans are looked at now in this country is much different, he said. “The attitudes have turned around 100 percent. People are very patriotic right now. They just appreciate veterans, wherever they come from. They stop and they talk to them. The uniform is worn and recognized. The healing after Vietnam [started] probably eight to nine years after Vietnam ended,” he said. Attendee Robert Rickard, a

State Auditor Yost to speak June 20 in Perrysburg By Mo Sheahan

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

Ohio State Auditor Dave Yost has a few stories to share about government accountability — some of which are quite good, he said. Yost is scheduled to speak about his office’s effort to audit the spending and efficiency of government practices across Ohio to an expected crowd of more than 150 at the Greater Toledo Republican Club’s annual member appreciation dinner on June 20. The conversation is not about party affiliation, Yost said. He said that ensuring accountability with taxpayer dollars is something everyone should be concerned about. “I think we need to start focusing on where we share interests, rather than where we differ,” Yost said. John Schulte, president-elect of the Greater Toledo Republican Club, said Yost’s appearance brings one of the most visible elected republican officials in the state to the Toledo area.

“He will be a great speaker, very topical,” Schulte said. “We’re excited to bring Yost to Toledo.” A recent audit conducted by Yost’s office revealed “scrubbing” of attendance records at Toledo Public Schools (TPS). “TPS has issues folks should be concerned about,” Yost said. “They are also working hard to do better. My understanding is that they have discontinued prior attendance practices. We are also on our way to correcting issues at the state level.” On an annual basis, Yost’s office conducts a financial audit of every government agency in the Toledo area. In addition, the office is occasionally invited to conduct a performance audit, such as the yearlong audit completed in Maumee in 2011 and 2012, which identified ways for the city to save millions, Yost said. Yost said he looks forward to events like the membership dinner, which enable him to talk to constituents around the state. “I always get there early and hang

around late so I can talk to the folks that want to talk,” he said. “Issues vary around the state. That’s one of the values of getting out of Columbus and the hot house of Capitol Square, [is to] talk to folks around the state.” While local issues differ, Yost sees common concerns throughout Ohio. “People are still worried about the economy, jobs and the affordable health care act,” he said. During the remainder of 2013 and beyond, Yost plans to continue with his office’s prime mission, which he says is to “go after the bad guys who steal the money, and help local and state governments to get skinnier.” Later this month, Yost said, he will close the books on the first round of 2013 state performance audits, which he said include significant savings. Results of all state audits, including those specific to Toledo, can be found at The Greater Toledo Republican Club is pleased to host Yost as the keynote speaker of this year’s membership dinner, Schulte said. He said the club was established in 1935 and is

the oldest Republican club in the area. “We want to spread the conservative message and support Republican candidates seeking public office in Lucas County. We’re about less government, and pro-business,” he said. Club meetings take place on the last Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Wernert’s Corners Civic Association Building, 5068 Douglas Road. Schulte said prominent speakers are scheduled for each meeting. The list of past speakers includes Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel, among others. Anyone is invited and new members are always welcome, Schulte said. Tickets to the membership dinner, to take place at the Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg, are $35 for individuals, $65 for couples or $250 for a table of eight. They may be purchased by calling current Greater Toledo Republican Club President Les Rupert at (734) 856-2296 or Schulte at (419) 8332500. The reservation deadline is June 13; no tickets will be sold at the door. O

EPIC Toledo to host pro negotiator at leadership event By Casey Harper

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

Most people go into negotiations underprepared and leave money on the table, according to negotiation expert Bob Yonker. He said just a little more preparation could make all the difference. Yonker will give listeners the keys to negotiating success at the EPIC Toledo Leadership Unplugged event June 11 at the Toledo Club, 245 14th St. Downtown. “People negotiate every day of their life whether it’s with their child, spouse, coworker or car dealer, but we don’t really think about how we can get better,” Yonker said. “We settle for deals that are OK but if we put a little bit more effort into it we could greatly increase the value of the deal.” Yonker is an associate professor of management at the University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation. He said he plans to explain how negotiators can get the most from their deals.

Yonker said the key to getting what you want in a negotiation is preparation. “Approximately 80 percent of your time should be preparing for a negotiation, and the other 20 percent of your time is spent physically negotiating,” he said. “Most people think the complete opposite and it really hurts them in terms of their outcomes.” When preparing, negotiators should ask themselves a few big questions. “What is your target point, or in other words, in a best case scenario what does the outcome look like?” Yonker said. “Also, you rarely get what you want in a negotiation if you don’t think about what the other parties want out of a negotiation. Through research, anticipate what the other parties want.” He also outlines some of the biggest traps naïve negotiators fall into. “We sometimes walk away from the table because our pride gets in the way,” Yonker said. “Feelings get hurt and we let that get in the way of a good deal. It could be the best deal we have

but we’ll walk away from the table out of our pride.” On the other hand, Yonker said fear of hurt feelings can cause a negotiator to get a bad deal. “We settle for terms that are worse than if we did walk away because some people don’t want to disappoint other people,” he said. “They don’t want to say no, and that’s irrational.” To avoid these traps and be more prepared, Yonker recommends practicing a “reverse negotiation.” “What you do is you get a friend to play you in a negotiation and you play the party that you are about to negotiate with,” Yonker said. “This forces you to be in the other party’s shoes, and it really helps you have a good perspective going into the negotiation. It will be strange the first couple of times you do this, but it will pay dividends in the end.” The EPIC Toledo event will be at the Toledo Club’s Belvedere Room from 5:30-7 p.m. Registration is free at “It gives us a chance to have our members as well as anyone else come

We sometimes walk away from the table because our pride gets in the way. It could be the best deal we have but we’ll walk away from the table out of our pride.”

— Bob Yonker together to hear about what’s going on with EPIC, hear from great speakers on topics of interest and participate in group discussions as well as professional development,” said EPIC Toledo Director Sara Swisher. “The event is going to be very fun and interactive and not a lecture style by any means, so I think the members will really enjoy that.” O

Central Catholic High School cuts staff more than 1,000 students. “If you think of it in terms of a basketball team, I have five jerseys, not six,” Maj said. “The sixth player may be a really good player but I just don’t have a jersey for him.” When Maj began working at Central Catholic in February, the school had already been cutting costs. Maj said he did not want to cut courses, electives, arts, Advanced Placement classes or other things he felt were most important to students. “We’re here to serve students,” he said. “I’m confident that the decisions we made will be sufficient to meet the needs of students next fall.” Maj met with all of the employees to instill confidence going forward. “This school has an 85-year reputation of graduating students who have realized real achievement gains, both academically and otherwise,” he said.” O

FOr the fifth year, KeyBank will help bring the Key to Safe Teen Driving program to Toledo, this year on June 18.

KeyBank partners with Mid-Ohio School to promote safe teen driving By Paige Shermis

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the U.S. In an attempt to combat this statistic, KeyBank is bringing the Key to Safe Teen Driving program to Toledo on June 18. This is the fifth year the program has been brought to Toledo, said James A. Hoffman, president of KeyBank’s Michigan/Northwest Ohio District. “One of the things that we have as an objective at the bank is to help our communities to be strong and to grow. One of the issues that exists in most communities is teen driving and teen safety. We were able to partner with one of our customers, who already had a teen safety driving program, and we’ve expanded now to four locations around the state,” Hoffman said. Key to Safe Teen Driving is also being brought to Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. The Toledo event will take place at Owens Community College at the Center for Emergency Preparedness. It is free and available for any teenager with a valid temporary driving permit or license with access to a vehicle. Up to 120 students at Key to Safe Teen Driving will receive classroom instruction from professional instructors from the Mid-Ohio School, as well as guided practice in wet braking and emergency lane change maneuvers. The goal is to improve the driving practices of participants. The program goes beyond what a normal driver’s education will teach a teenager, said Stephen Timms, marketing

information coordinator at Mid-Ohio. “[Key to Safe Teen Driving] is above and beyond what driver’s ed will do. It puts teens in positions that they will encounter out on the streets. We will put them in a position when you need to make an emergency lane change or start to hydroplane … that you usually don’t encounter until you’re in the process of wrecking,” Timms said. Part of the course involves driving the Honda Civic Skid Car, which replicates driving in icy or wet conditions. The car is outfitted with outriggers that take traction away from the car’s wheels, Timms said. “It puts them into situations they would not normally be in, so they can safely put the car into a skid,” Hoffman said. According to a news release from KeyBank, AAA of Northwest Ohio will also be at the event providing free vehicle safety inspections. This is not the only time KeyBank has partnered with its clients to sponsor events. “We have a nonprofit clients that we partner with in Toledo. We do a lot of joint programs with them to help them fulfill their mission. We do some joint programming together. We do volunteer hours together. We have 50 nonprofit customers in Northwest Ohio and we support most of them, if not all of them,” Hoffman said. According to Hoffman and Timms, the program’s testamonials speak volumes to its effectiveness. “Every teenager who has gone through it has found it very worthwhile and we are glad they had the experience,” Hoffman said. To register, visit or call (877) 793-TMOS (8667) for more information on the MidOhio School. O

Kaplan said families should approach decisions of combining households from a partnership perspective. “Ask yourself, ‘Can I get the whole family behind the idea?,’” Kaplan said. “When a decision is made to combine families, expectations must be set right away. Family members must listen and become engaged in conversation. The more the entire family buys in at the beginning, the more likely they will be to come up with great ideas. People need independence, but seeking interdependence and family unity are important as well, particularly in today’s hectic and demanding world.” For a copy of the free handbook, “Too Close for Comfort,” contact the Greater Toledo Home Instead Senior Care office by calling (419) 472-8181 or by visiting www.homeinstead. com/324.

Dana has emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy and is moving forward with the introduction of several new product and technology developments in 2013. “Dana is a global technology leader in efficient power conveyance and energy management solutions that enable our customers to achieve their sustainability objectives. In short, we are a technology solution provider, and we focus on delivering those products and systems to our customers that are going to help them deliver to their customers what they need,” said Dana President and CEO Roger Wood. He and Executive Vice President and CFO Bill Quigley provided a brief overview of the company’s financial status in a formal presentation May 30 at the 2013 KeyBanc Capital Markets 12th Annual Industrial, Automotive and Transportation Conference in Boston. They will also participate in the Deutsche Bank 2013 Global Industrials and Basic Materials Conference in Chicago on June 13. Dana Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 3, 2006, and submitted a proposed Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure Statement in September 2007, which became effective Jan. 31, 2008. The company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy as Dana Holding Corporation at that time. The United States Bankruptcy Court of Southern New York closed Dana’s bankruptcy case on Feb. 21, 2012. When the company entered bankruptcy, its leadership was committed to fixing its business — financially and operationally — and implementing fundamental change rather than just incremental improvement, according to statements from Mike

Today, the company has 500 employees at that facility and a total of 800 in the Toledo area, according to a company spokesperson. The current corporate offices and technology center are split with 90,000 square feet of office space and 90,000 square feet of laboratory space. Most of the company’s engineering, research and development staff works in that facility, according

to the spokesperson.

Spring trade shows

Dana recently completed its spring trade show season during which the company introduced several new product developments and technologies to the automotive, truck and off-the-road industries, said Steven Wesolowski, senior director of global engineering at Dana. The company is a leading supplier of driveline, sealing and thermal management technologies that improve the efficiency and performance of passenger cars, trucks, commercial and offhighway vehicles with both conventional and alternative energy powertrains.

Dana’s current business is concentrated in three areas and brands — Spicer drivetrain products, Victor Reinz sealing systems and Long thermal products — Wesolowski said. Dana serves more than 1,000 vehicle assembly and manufacturing facilities of light and heavy vehicles and off-highway equipment in 30 countries. In April, Dana was presented with a 2013 Automotive News PACE Award for its innovative Spicer® Diamond Series™ drive shaft, the first onepiece drive shaft to combine dissimilar metals, helping to reduce weight by up to 40 percent. n DANA CONTINUES ON 17

t dawned on me a few weeks ago, following my decision to retire from the University of Toledo this summer, that I’ve spent 50 years in academia. The timing of this decision had nothing to do with this being my “golden anniversary” in higher education; it was sheer coincidence. My first semester of teaching was fall, 1963. I was teaching a course on social problems during the lunch hour that semester and had approximately 20 students in the class. Halfway through my lecture — which I had worked on until late the previous evening — there was a knock on the classroom door. The date was Nov. 22, 1963. A student messenger was going from classroom to classroom informing everyone that President John F. Kennedy had been shot in Dallas — just 30 miles from our campus. The shocking news presented a genuine dilemma for this new college instructor: Should I continue with my lecture, the lecture on which I had worked so long, or should I dismiss class so the students could get to a TV to see what was going on. Being totally inexperienced, I made the wrong decision. I continued with my lecture. Looking back, I can’t believe I did that. n JOHNSON CONTINUES ON 19

The JLTV program entered into the engineering and manufacturing development phase earlier this year when six vehicle manufacturers submitted bids for three contracts. Roughly 22 prototypes will be built during the next 27 months with a full production contract expected to be awarded in 2015 or early 2016, according to Dana officials. The Spicer Diamond Series drive shaft, AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle and CTIS were all featured in Dana’s exhibit at recent trade shows. The exhibit and products were on display when a Toledo Free Press reporter toured the facility with Wesolowski and Jeff Cole, director of marketing communication at Dana. In September, Dana announced strategic relationships with Allison Transmissions and Fallbrook Technologies Inc. to develop, manufacture, and market high-efficiency Continuously Variable Planetary Transmissions.

Sealing and thermal areas

Dana officials demonstrated numerous other recent product developments and technologies in the sealing and thermal areas, including an electronic connector gasket to measure heat and pressure, cylinder head cover modules made from recycled carpet that is better than virgin nylon, airoil separators that reduce usage and an exhaust gas heat recovery system, among others. Wesolowski said the company has developed a gearbox for electric vehicles with motor driven wheels and an internal battery element cooler currently used in the Chevrolet Volt and Ford Focus electric model. Dana has developed an exhaust gas heat recovery system, engine and transmission oil cooler, water-cooled charge air cooler and an active warmup unit that can improve fuel economy by 3 to 6 percent during start-ups, according to Wesolowski. Although Dana still has Ford, General Motors and Chrysler as major customers, it now serves more than 100 different automotive, truck and off-highway original equipment manufacturers around the world. Light vehicles include pas-

Heavy vehicles include Class 5-8 medium- and heavy-duty trucks, buses, motor coaches, and specialty vehicles. Off-highway equipment includes agricultural, construction, material handling and mining equipment as well as nonvehicular industrial products. It also serves related aftermarkets for all three primary markets. Dana announced May 16 that it has launched its Spicer™ iPhone application, a free tool kit that was developed to provide aftermarket customers with a fast, convenient way to access interactive calculators to help compute key product data and meet target performance and safety goals. “It’s an exciting time for Dana because we do have such good strength in a lot of different areas of the company: where we are positioned, the brand recognition, new-product driven and focused on profitable growth. We believe market share will come by putting the solutions in the marketplace that our customers value,” Wood said.

18 Business Link n JOHNSON CONTINUED FROM 16 But my lecture didn’t last for long. No one was listening to me and everyone was becoming more restless with each passing minute. I don’t think I was even listening to myself. Better judgment prevailed after about 10 minutes and I dismissed the class and we all scattered to find the nearest TV. That was nearly 50 years ago. It is very hard to believe I’ve spent a half-century on college and university campuses. Longevity, if nothing else, provides some perspective. As I’ve started looking back at all those years in higher education, I can see some great progress as well as some lost ground. A few areas where our colleges and universities have made great strides include the following: O Diversity. The Civil Rights movement had an enormous impact on university admissions and student demographics … all for the good. Today, one of the greatest strengths of our colleges and universities is diversity among students, faculty and staff. O Technology. The technology revolution is bringing major changes in teaching and learning. We are just scratching the surface of the changes on the horizon. All of us wonder where it will lead? O Globalization. Internationalization of higher education is a reality. With it has come much greater exposure to other cultures and nationalities. I believe it is also leading to a better understanding of others different from ourselves. O Engagement. Colleges and universities are much more engaged in their communities than ever before. The ivory towers have been lowered and, in some instances, have disappeared altogether. This is good for our universities and our communities. O Research. Expansion of research, thanks to federal funding as well as private support through foundations, has led to new knowledge. The growing challenge is learning how to apply what we are learning from this research. I participated in all these changes and have a sense that I learned something from each. I am certainly proud of how our colleges and universities have stepped up to the plate and, in some cases, actually led the movement for change. The story of higher education during the past 50 years is not, however, one of pure progress. There are some areas where, in my view, we may have lost ground and perhaps even lost sight of our earlier vision and mission. Allow me to mention a few that come to mind: O Cost of education. It is no secret that we are pricing some bright

I believe the gains in higher education have been greater than the losses. American universities are still the envy of the world and one of this country’s greatest attractions.

We can lower the cost of public education and we should. It is up to us. O College loans. The heavy debt burden carried by our graduates and even those who drop out has a chilling

effect on our economy, not to mention the debilitating effects on the individuals involved. We cannot allow this to continue if we want to see our young people prosper. O Intercollegiate athletics. I’m a strong fan of our student athletes but

I have growing concerns that our athletic programs are becoming too big, too powerful and too costly, making it very difficult for our universities to find the proper balance between academics and athletics. O Compensation philosophy. We are witnessing an “out of touch” compensation philosophy for university presidents and even senior administrators in a growing number of universities. When university presidents earn four or five times as much as the president of the United States it suggests something is wrong. These last points are not meant to be negative but simply suggest our universities are not perfect. On balance, I believe the gains in higher education have been greater than the losses.

When you meet students today it is hard not to be optimistic about the future. You don’t have to be a genius to see the genius in many of our students. Even the most casual look at our campuses today reveals students with emerging leadership skills, strong motivation, deep convictions and a desire to make the world and their community a better place. It has been an honor and privilege to spend the past half-century on campus mingling with students, faculty, staff and administrators. It has also been a great pleasure to know all those folks in our communities and across the country who support our colleges and universities and help make them the great institutions they are.

A Toledo tradition since 2005


By Vicki L. Kroll

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

A funny thing happened when MTV aired a three-and-a-half-minute video called “Eat It,” a shot-for-shot parody of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” in 1984. “MTV changed my life. It made me into a celebrity I’d have to say, literally overnight, which you don’t think that’s the case, but MTV was so powerful back then. So many people were watching it that I remember very clearly the day after my song ‘Eat It’ went into heavy rotation on MTV; I was immediately recognizable everywhere,” “Weird Al” Yankovic recalled. “It was the oddest thing to go from virtual anonymity to being the ‘Eat It’ guy. Like everywhere I went, people would stare at me and they’d recognize me from MTV.” More memorable videos starring the curly-haired leading man followed: “Like a Surgeon,” a parody of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” in 1985; “Fat,” which mocked Jackson’s “Bad,” in 1988; “Smells Like Nirvana,” set to the grunge rockers’ “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” in 1992; “Amish Paradise,” à la Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,” in 1996; “White & Nerdy,” a spoof of Chamillionaire’s 2006 song “Ridin’”; “Perform This Way,” which imitates Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” in 2011. “I can tell you what I think the elements of a good parody are,” the singer-songwriter-comic said during a call from his Los Angeles home. “Obviously, a song that’s either topical or timely in some way. One of my big rules of parodies is it has to be funny even if you’re not familiar with the original source material that it’s based on. “And it just has to sustain throughout the entire song; it can’t be a one-joke song or it can’t lag after whatever the joke is in the chorus. It’s got to still be funny in the second verse and still funny in the third verse.” He may have lost the glasses and mustache, but Yankovic’s comedic musical genius rages on. His 2011 disc, “Alpocalypse,” debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 charts. Pretty amazing considering his first parody, “My Bologna,” a sendup of The Knack’s “My Sharona,” was released in 1979. The secret to his longevity? “It’s sheer tenacity; I mean, it’s just me refusing to stop,” Yankovic said and laughed. “I’ve managed to

surround myself with wonderful, talented people. I’ve had the same band since the very beginning. I’ve had a lot of the same people in my life for almost as long, and we make a good team. “And the fans have been wonderful and very supportive, so it’s all just kind of worked out. A lot of it is just luck — sheer, stupid luck.” Luck, really? Yankovic is the No. 1 comedy recording artist with sales of more than 12 million albums. He’s been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards and has won three of the statues. It must be his accordion playing. And that zany sense of humor, affinity for pop culture, ginormous talent and, oh yeah, hard work. The Lynwood, Calif., native has a reputation for thoroughly researching subjects before penning a song. He studied ducks for one week before writing “I Want a New Duck,” a parody of Huey Lewis and The News’ “I Want a New Drug,” according to fellow parody artist Dr. Demento’s liner notes from “Permanent Record: Al in the Box.” Asked what the most extensive research he’s done for a tune is, Yankovic laughed and said, “Well, it depends what you call research. I mean, a song like ‘White & Nerdy,’ I’ve been doing research for that my entire life.” It doesn’t hurt that his spot-on humor is spotless. “I don’t even use profanity in everyday life, so I certainly wouldn’t include it in my music. It’s just the kind of humor that I’ve chosen to put out in the world,” he said. Politeness does have its perks. Yankovic gets permission from the original songwriters of the tracks that he lampoons. “I try not to burn bridges. Even though I could get away with doing things even if the artists aren’t happy with it, I don’t want the drama; I don’t want the ill feelings. I want to make sure the artist is OK with the parody before I even start writing it,” he said. “I think that’s another reason I managed to hang around as long as I have.” Throughout his career, Yankovic has also written original songs with funny lyrics and catchy melodies: “Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters From a Planet Near Mars,” “The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota,” “Craigslist,” “The Night Santa Went Crazy,” “You Don’t Love Me Anymore,” “Don’t Download This Song,”

“Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me.” Don’t forget another staple: polka medleys. For “Polka Face” on “Alpocalypse,” Yankovic squeezed together splices of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Flo Rida, Kid Cudi, Lady Antebelleum, Justin Bieber, P!nk, Katy Perry, Jamie Foxx, Jay Sean, Taio Cruz, Frankie Yankovic (no relation, by the way) and Ke$ha. “Weird Al” will bring it all to Centennial Terrace in Sylvania for an 8 p.m. concert June 14. Tickets range from $25 to $49.50. In 2011, the pop satirist started a new chapter in his storied career with a children’s book, “When I Grow Up.” The followup titled “My New Teacher and Me!” is due out June 25. “I was always a big fan of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein, and I always thought that I would probably be fairly adept at children’s literature, but I never really was terribly proactive about it. But I was approached several years ago by Anne Hoppe, who is (a former) editor for HarperCollins, and she was a big fan of my music and said that she found something in my lyrics, in the word play, that seemed to indicate to her that I would have a natural ability for children’s lit,” he said. “I was thrilled and amazed when [‘When I Grow Up’] became a New York Times best-seller. It was a wonderful experience working on it.” O

cup. The measured approach gives them the time to gather all of the facts, so they don’t strike without full knowledge of the situation. And dropping the hammer on 20 players

at once, ranging from All-Star to minor leaguer, shows that no one is going to sneak past the screeners. Baseball’s been fighting PEDs for years. They might not be winning

the fight, but at least they’re starting to land some punches. O Matt “Shaggy” Culbreath is sports director for 1370 WSPD.

Your Tarotgram and Horoscope

JUNE 9-15, 2013

Events: 1st and 2nd quarter Moon-Venus Aries (March 21-April 19)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

All your senses are on high alert. Leverage inner strength to make tough choices and do what you have to do, even if that means letting go. After Wednesday, new options and possibilities enter onto the scene through luck or others’ generosity. Follow your bliss.

Other peoples’ love lives or relationships may be troubled, and they want your advice and support. Patience is strained if problems are long-standing. Triumphs and successes are close at hand by midweek, and reward long-term efforts. Obstacles are dissolving with time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

You’re not a fan of change, even when you initiate it. By releasing the past and having faith in the future, you create room for better things to manifest. After Tuesday, significant connections move you in unimaginable ways. Be open to anything.

Scheduling and personnel changes at work and/or major changes around relatives continue. Emerging situations introduce you to entirely new disciplines or fields of learning. People with great power or authority could influence critical current decisions.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Power is being exercised. If you’ve been smart, you can use power to make things happen now. If you weren’t, others exercise power over you. Fate is what happens, and destiny is what you make of it by choice and attitude. Past truths may be irrelevant now.

Important deals and exchanges are at hand, and lead to great opportunities. Long-term situations are changing dramatically. Hidden hopes, fears, realities, and possibilities become visible. New paths and relationships bubble up from hidden places. Be courageous.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

People around you are rearranging themselves in time and place. Decisions range from noble to petty. Take a position where you can view things from a distance to evaluate and absorb. People in high places can do favors for you midweek. Saturday evening is fine.

Exchanges in relationships of all sorts are at an extreme. People are making major transitions. Expect big offers and equally big requests – your flow of give-and-take is at maximum flow. Being generous is to your advantage. Saturday night is special.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Your workplace or long-term family processes experience turbulent upheavals. Meanwhile, you’re shifting interests and priorities for your long-term future. Home renovation or relocating are possibilities. Travel plans or big exchanges being discussed by Thursday.

You discover who and what is most important in your life. It’s easy to gravitate toward those who appreciate your talents, but pay attention to those who give constructive criticism and expect more, as these people may be the source of the best future options.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

People and relationships continue to evolve around you. Some people are exasperating. You discover an interest in pursuing spiritual goals, or in taking a long-distance journey overseas. Personal projects or efforts produce excellent results midweek.

You continue to experience high points and milestones of gain and loss. People and things from the past fade while exciting new things surge into motion, a process most evident through family changes. A person or situation that has held sway for years is dissolving.

A home for Fawn

Fawn is a 2-yearold bunny. She and several other bunnies were brought into the Toledo Area Humane Society after their owner was evicted from her home. Fawn is a dwarf rabbit so she won’t get any bigger than she is now. She is very friendly and doesn’t mind being petted and held as long as you handle her gently. She loves to be fed snacks of apples, carrots, and broccoli. The Humane Society is working on training her to use a litter box so cleaning her cage will be much easier. Just like any other pet, rabbits require lots of care and attention so

you may want to read about them before choosing to take one home. If you’re looking to add a little something different to your household, maybe Fawn would be a good fit for you. Fawn has been spayed and examined by a TAHS staff veterinarian. Toledo Area Humane Society is located at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Arrowhead Park, Maumee. Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call (419) 891-0705 or visit www. O
