Military Yearbook: call for submissions

N

ewspaper people measure time not just by hours and weeks and months, but issue to issue. So it should not surprise me that our editorial staff is assembling our third annual Military Yearbook issue, but somehow that “third” is a jarring reminder of how quickly time passes. Compiling these annual Toledo Free Press Military Yearbooks has been a humbling experience. Talking about service, dedication and sacrifice is easy; working with the men and women who live those ideals inspires gratitude and humility. We are soliciting photos and messages from regional servicemen and servicewomen — at no charge to the families — to be compiled in our special issue. To be included, email a high-resolution photo of the military member along with a short message to troops@toledofreepress.com Thomas F. Pounds by June 24. Also include the member’s full name, rank and military branch with each photo. Submissions can be of current military members or veterans. There are an estimated 80,000 veterans in the eight-county area served by our regional Veterans Affairs offices. Add to that the number of active military members and guardsmen and you have more people to thank than you will ever be able to reach one at a time. In the Military Yearbook, to be published June 29, you will see scores of local men and women who proudly wear the uniform of the United States military. You will see photos of service members in faraway deserts, a world removed from their family and civilian lives. As the father of a serviceman, Army Cpl. Austin Pounds, I know we pray for the safe return of each and every one of them. The stories in this upcoming issue — the brainchild of Toledo Free Press media writer Jeremy Baumhower and the product of Managing Editor Sarah Ottney and Project Editor Amanda Tindall — offer a glimpse into the services offered to our active military members and our veterans by several groups run by people who approach their work with the same righteousness and generosity as the people they serve. We greatly appreciate the people who will share stories, send in photos and bare their souls to impart their wisdom. We thank the advertisers who are signing up to support this issue, especially Newsradio 1370 WSPD, Columbia Gas of Ohio and the American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio. Each of these groups made time and brainpower investments that helped us plan this special coverage. On the verge of our country’s July 4 birthday, we stop to reflect on our freedoms, liberties and the countless lives cut short so that we may carry on. We stop to think about the families without fathers and sons, without mothers and daughters. We stop to think about the bodies without limbs and minds without peace. This issue is our modest effort at saying thank you. Thank you for your service, your dedication and your sacrifice. O Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Lucas County Republican Party discourages candidates, donors TO THE EDITOR,

As is well known by now, the Lucas County Republican Party is in disarray, as evidenced by the June 11 reorganization meeting. As background, I am the 59-year-old grandmother knocked to the ground by “security” at that meeting. While that incident is interesting, what led up to it is what’s important. It started early when party Chairman Jon Stainbrook’s people were checking in central committee precinct people. Observers and other duly elected central committee people (other than his) were barred from entering the building. Fortunately, TV cameras showed up and that practice ended. When checking in central committee representatives, some people (Stainbrook’s friends) received orange lanyards. I did not receive a lanyard. I asked Meghan Gallagher and Kelly Bensman why I did not get a lanyard and I was subjected to more verbal assault by their security people and threatened with being thrown from the building. After the meeting was called to order, things started to go downhill fast. New rules were introduced without the opportunity to review them. The new rules were read aloud by the chair, Gallagher, who only recognized “orange lanyard” committee people to speak and ignored the rest of the assembled central committee folks. Our voices were strategically ignored. Did we get loud? Yes, what else could we do to try to represent our districts if we were excluded from participating? It was at this time that some

longtime officeholders, Rob Ludeman, Lynn Olman and probably a dozen other prominent Republicans, left in disgust, some of them tearing up their certificates saying they couldn’t be a part of the fiasco. The “security” consisted of really big guys in tight black T-shirts designed to show off their muscles. But that wasn’t enough; they also openly carried guns, Tasers and handcuffs. I believe they were there to intimidate the central committee people without the lanyards because they only harassed those of us who did not get a lanyard. I believe that was also part of Stainbrook’s strategy. Some of the security folks said they were only following orders when questioned as to why they were acting as they were to those of us without lanyards. From the beginning, I was targeted by security. I was pushed around and told to shut up and sit down, even as the lanyard people were free to do as they pleased. I was repeatedly threatened with being thrown out of the building. I was told there were restricted areas I could not be in even though “orange lanyard” central committee people were there. I was threatened verbally all night long. I was pushed forcefully on more than one occasion. At one point, Central Commission Vice Chairman Jonathan Anderson slapped my cellphone out of my hand. It landed 3 feet away on the floor with the cover knocked off of it. After Stainbrook had won his vote, I left the meeting for a couple of minutes and went outside for a breath of fresh air; when I attempted

n MILLER CONTINUED FROM 3 Among the many highlights of the 21-track CD are two songs by Fish and Distant Cousinz that highlight a recent local story that made international headlines. “Marlee’s Freedom” and “Lucky Day” are about the children of Tiffany Eckert and Army Sgt. Andy Eckert, who was killed in Iraq in 2008. The story of daughter Marlee’s connection to freedom and the tale of son Myles finding $20 and “paying it forward” to Lt. Col. Frank Dailey are recounted on the CD’s bonus tracks, both with the blessing and input of Tiffany. It’s a fun and summery CD, but these two tracks serve to remind us why it exists. I always appreciate Put-in-Bay’s “Christmas in July” weekend, so a brief interlude on the disc provides music for that event; the rocker “Christmas in Killarney” by Extra Stout and the original “Xmas in Jail” by Thirsty Houligans linger on the season just long enough to make you want to take a sprig of mistletoe to the beach. In two weeks, Project Editor Sanya Ali will present a special issue with stories on the musicians who contributed to the CD and a look at the work of the local Red Cross. In the meantime, stop by any area Big Boy or Ralphie’s restaurant starting next week and get your copy; it’s $10 for 21 tracks, and there’s a $4 Big Boy/Ralphie’s coupon inside. Great local music, great local meals and a great local cause ... is there a better way to enjoy summer? O Michael S. Miller is editor in chief of Toledo Free Press and news director of Newsradio 1370 WSPD. Email him at mmiller@toledofreepress.com.

to return to the meeting, I was met by Alex Rivera and three big guys with guns. I showed my credentials, explaining (yes, loudly, because they were shouting in my face) that I had not only the right, but also the obligation to my precinct to be in that meeting. Then I was gang-pushed to the door and knocked to the ground. Another gentleman, even though he was following orders from “security,” was pushed to the ground as well. All of this is documented on videotape. Police and EMT were called. You can see this at http://www.lcrp2014.com/. I am relatively new to politics. I am only doing this because I think my grandkids deserve better. I am shocked at the way this unfolded. I did nothing to deserve being treated that way. The people of Lucas County deserve better. So what’s the solution? More

I am only doing this because I think my grandkids deserve better. I am shocked at the way this unfolded. I did nothing to deserve being treated that way. The people of Lucas County deserve better.”

people have to get involved. We need more people to stand up against this kind of politics. We do not have to

settle for politics as usual. There are simple ways to help change the status quo: get involved as a precinct person and get active in a local Republican club. Stay informed by getting on the Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition email list at www.nwohiocc.com. While all of this is interesting, and might be dismissed as in-party faction disagreements, I believe the most important part of the meeting was when Ludeman and the others walked out because they do not want to be part of this lawless organization. It’s not just a faction in the party dispute. The bottom line is this: Amid this turmoil, why would good people be inspired to run for office as a Republican? Why would donors contribute money?

Smithsonian video games exhibit debuts at TMA By Jeff McGinnis

Toledo Free Press Pop Culture Editor PopGoesJeff@gmail.com

For more than a century, the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) has served as one of the most prominent jewels in the Glass City’s artistic crown. Wandering its galleries, visitors are treated to a representative sampling of the works of some of the greatest names their mediums had ever known. Rubens. Rembrandt. El Greco. Miyamoto. Kojima. Levine. If those last few names seem out of place, perhaps the newest exhibition at TMA will help to change your mind. Beginning June 19, the museum’s Canaday Gallery became home to a show that spotlights the creative output of a canvas

which has heretofore been left unchronicled within many galleries: Interactive media. Playable narratives. “The Art of Video Games.” “The key to what the exhibition is about is in the title,” TMA Director Brian Kennedy said during a news conference with reporters on June 17. “It’s about, in a sense, in question, to what extent do you believe that video games are art, and what is the art form in video games?”

Smithsonian debut

“The Art of Video Games” exhibit is in many ways the brainchild of Chris Melissinos, former chief evangelist and chief gaming officer for Sun Microsystems. Working with the Smithsonian Institution, Melissinos crafted the show to demonstrate the evolution of gaming over a 40-year

period, emphasizing how games grew, not just graphically, but artistically. “A whole new culture has been established,” Kennedy said in an interview with Toledo Free Press. “Gaming is a usage of technologies to do something that we’ve never been able to do in this way before. And then, out of that, come certain artists that become very, very well known. And yet most of them, I don’t think, have yet emerged. This is such a new format.” The exhibit was designed to tell the story of game development by dividing it into individual eras, with kiosks representing 20 different platforms. Art and videos showing examples of games that defined their time period are on display at each station. These

representatives were voted on by the public, with players around the world choosing which titles best exemplified each era. Five games are made available to be played by visitors: the original “Pac-Man,” “Super Mario Bros.,” the adventure game “The Secret of Monkey Island,” the groundbreaking point-andclick title “Myst” and the offbeat and beautiful PlayStation 3 title “Flower.” “The Art of Video Games” was wildly popular during its initial run at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. “This exhibition was one of the most successful exhibitions in Washington at the Smithsonian — actually, the most successful exhibition they’ve had,” Kennedy said. n VIDEO GAMES CONTINUES ON 7


ToledoFreePress.com

n VIDEO GAMES CONTINUED FROM 6 “And it just attracted people because there hadn’t been an exhibition on the art of video games.”

Back in time

Stepping into the exhibit, as it now stands in the Toledo Museum of Art, is less like walking into a gallery and more like traveling back in time to an arcade. The first sight is a 10-foothigh projection screen, showing PacMan wandering his trademark maze. The sounds of Mario collecting coins and stomping on enemies dominate the space as you wander the gallery. The entire experience is like being inside echoes of gaming’s past. The look and feel of the show is quite deliberate, explained Amy Gilman, the museum’s associate director and point curator for “The Art of Video Games.” “I just have to give a little shout-out to our exhibition’s designer, Claude Fixler, who is the one who really works with each curator on the different shows, to come up with different ways of displaying for that show. And we do, we spend a lot of time thinking, ‘What is the best way for this show to be seen here in Toledo?’ “And with this exhibition, we had seen it in other venues, and the place that we saw it last was in a much larger

space, it was more spread out. And we thought that, actually, for us to really make it more of a tight show, [we kept it] enough like an arcade that you immediately go there in your mind. We wanted it to be a little loud, we wanted it to feel a little visually crazy and all of that. And that’s a really important quality to video games, but it’s also an important quality to the experience of the exhibition.” It’s a little jarring for someone familiar with the space — and with the museum in general — to see the transformation. Just a few months ago, the Canaday Gallery was home to a showing of works from the Tuileries Gardens of the Louvre. To see it as it is now might strike some as a vulgar offense to their delicate ideas of what “art” is. But to Gilman, that contrast is crucial to the museum’s mission. “For the museum, it’s really important that over time we have a really broad range of offerings for our visitors,” Gilman said to the gathered reporters. “And that means reaching out into communities that are not necessarily served by being our core audience, but it also means that we like to provide all our visitors with really different experiences.” n Video games CONTINUES ON 8

n Video Games CONTINUED FROM 7 For anyone who lived through the console eras represented, the exhibit is certainly a genuine shot of nostalgia — a factor Gilman and her colleagues recognize. “The fact that we chose to use Mario and Pac-Man as our graphics for this show is about the nostalgia for that period in video gaming that is very much alive today. So one of the things that’s very important to know is, this exhibition isn’t about showcasing the next latest game from Nintendo, or Wii or whatever, and being the launch for that. It’s actually about looking at the progression in a way that we who play video games in our basements probably don’t get a chance to do.” It’s against the nature of the show — and indeed the medium it represents — to only dwell on the past, however. The four corners of the room are dominated by large projection screens where visitors can play one of the interactive titles, arranged chronologically. To see the progression of play

— from “Mario,” where the goal is to stomp enemies and save the princess, to “Flower,” where you flutter on the breeze to invigorate a dying landscape — it’s hard not to see how narrative and genuinely artistic ideas have taken root for players the world over. “With heightened, almost virtual reality, or hyperrealism in video capability now, we understand that it is more visually complex and that narratives are more complex, etc. But you don’t actually see how different it is in that progression, because we don’t actually look at it in that way,” Gilman said. “So bringing them in here, and you being able to start with the most pixelated, some of the most beloved, like Pac-Man. And you progress, and you can see them next to each other, you really get a sense of ... not just the technical advances, but really, how visually and narratively complex things have become.” “The Art of Video Games” is on display at the Toledo Museum of Art from now through Sept. 28. Admission is free. O

Fire Station No. 3 rededicated to two fallen firefighters By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Fire Station No. 3 in North Toledo was rededicated June 16. But the celebratory mood at the station that many fought hard to save was tempered by the fact that two of its members, Stephen Machcinski and James Dickman, won’t be there when the renovated station returns to service. “It’s a day of mixed emotions, but we’re trying real hard to make it a good, positive, happy day,” said Toledo Fire & Rescue Department (TFD) Chief Luis Santiago. “Having the families of Steve and Jamie here, that’s what really helps.” The two Toledo firefighters were

killed Jan. 26 from injuries sustained while fighting an apartment fire in North Toledo. The owner of the building, Ray Abou-Arab, is facing charges of arson and murder. The $2.8 million project, located on Bush and Erie streets, renovated the existing firehouse and added a 7,000-square-foot addition. The station contains sleeping quarters, a dual-purpose lounge area/training room, a full kitchen and dining area. The station’s former garage doors were transformed into large bay windows. It’s the only TFD station to have an elevator. “The blend between the old and new is just amazing,” Santiago said after the ceremony. n Station No. 3 CONTINUES ON 10

10 Community Remembrances of the fallen firefighters pervaded the ceremony, and the station is full of permanent reminders. Each speaker referenced them, a memorial plaque hangs in the kitchen and another memorial plaque, donated by the builders, was unveiled during the ceremony. The plaque in the kitchen features photos of the two fallen firefighters and the words “We Remember.” A carved stone plaque placed in the back wall of the garage bay by the site’s work crews reads, “In Memory of Stephen Machcinski and James Dickman, Last Alarm 1-26-2014, From the Crew that Built This House.” “It’s beyond description,” Santiago said of the stone from the builders. “They did that out of their own initiative. They really took our loss hard as well.” Mark Pitchford of Toledo-based Willson Builders recalled frequent interactions with the firefighters of engine company No. 3. The crew has operated out of Station No. 13 on Front Street in East Toledo since the Bush Street station was closed in September 2012 over safety concerns due to a buckling floor and other structural issues. “On any given day it was not uncommon to see the No. 3 drive by two, three, sometimes more times a day on their way to or coming back from a run, always looking and waving as we

would all do the same back to them,” Pitchford said during the ceremony. “The Monday of Jan. 27, it was different. It was quiet inside this house. They drove by, still responding to calls, but no one was waving, not in the trucks or on the job site. On the job site we all felt the loss as well. We all felt we needed to do something to honor them.” The workers decided to place a plaque between the back garage doors “to show that Jamie and Steve are watching this place until you get back home safe,” Pitchford said. Among the speakers was Mayor D. Michael Collins, who began his remarks by addressing the Machcinski and Dickman families. “This is a very challenging moment for each of you, collectively and independently,” Collins said. “However, I think if we look into the recesses of our hearts we will know that two brave men are smiling and looking down upon us today with a sense of pride.” Instead of a ribbon-cutting, firefighters used the Jaws of Life to cut a red metal bar. Former Toledo Mayor Mike Bell, a retired TFD chief who was once stationed at Station No. 3, was also in attendance. North Toledo residents Miriam Miller and her son-inlaw Harold Gibson made paper signs they placed in front of the station that read: “Ladder #3, In Memory

of Our Fallen Heros” and “Welcome Home No. #3, Thank You!” “It’s heartwarming,” Miller said of the station reopening. “It feels so good to have our firefighters back, but so hard to lose two of them. “It’s so beautiful,” Miller said, of the refurbished structure. “It was so terrible looking [before].” Another nearby resident, Tina Petersen, said she attended the dedication ceremony to check out the new building as well as express her gratitude to the Machcinski and Dickman families in person. Petersen had a seizure in January and a TFD EMT crew responded. A few days later, one of her neighbors recognized the EMTs who had come to her house in a news story about the fatal Jan. 26 fire. “I wanted to let them know what it meant to me,” Petersen said. “It’s going to be so much better [in the neighborhood] with the fire station back,” she added. Santiago called the station an “anchor” of the neighborhood. “This is a very proud section of Toledo,” Santiago said. “They thought it was very, very important to have this not only maintained but refurbished and updated.” TFD initially planned to repurpose the Bush Street station and build a new Station No. 3 at Jamie Farr Park in North Toledo, Santiago said. However, many community

members along with several Toledo City Council members and thenMayor Bell fought for the station to be repaired and reopened. “We didn’t think that made sense,” said United North CEO Terry Glazer, who called the renovation and upcoming reopening “a great victory.” “Not only did we save an old historical building, but kept a fire station at that location where there will continue to be a relationship between firefighters and neighbors,” Glazer said.

More positive changes will soon come to the neighborhood with construction plans for a new No. 12 fire station in North Toledo and the purchase of the nearby Summit Street YMCA by Toledo Public Schools (TPS), Glazer said. “We’re gaining two fire stations as part of the solution and now TPS is buying the YMCA. That’s happening right down the block,” Glazer said. “It all just dovetails into a bigger strategy so we’ve had some real victories in that neighborhood.” O

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

A pool, a patio, a grill, a garden, a place for your dog to romp — all evoke the pleasures of a spacious suburban backyard. But many Downtown residents have made their own private “backyard” oases in an unlikely location — building rooftops. When her husband first proposed leaving their South End home to move Downtown, Janet Albright resisted. “I told him, ‘Fine, as long as you find me green space,’” she said. “I didn’t want to move Downtown and I knew he couldn’t find a building with green space.” But he did — a building on South St. Clair Street with a flat roof, perfect for starting a garden. They’ve lived there now for more than 10 years and Albright is a Downtown convert — in large part due to her rooftop “sanctuary,” a popular gathering place for family and friends.

A Toledo tradition since 2005

She and her husband, Richard Rideout, live on the top floor of the three-story building and lease the other two floors. Transforming the building into their dream home was a “labor of love,” but worth the effort, Albright said. “The cool part for us was we had a blank canvas,” Albright said. Today, their private rooftop features potted herbs and flowers along with a deck, dining area, refrigerator, grill, bar, TV and more. They even have trees — two hardy corkscrew willows. Her blueberry bush didn’t survive the winter, but her rose bushes are blooming. The only thing she doesn’t have is vegetables. “My one sore spot,” Albright said. “I cannot get them to grow. It’s not them; it’s me.” The couple’s “backyard” is a popular gathering spot for family functions; there’s even been a wedding held there. “It’s like a sanctuary,” Albright said. “It’s no different than having a great backyard and hanging out on your patio when you live in the suburbs, but mine’s up four stories up and I have a beautiful view of the city. We can see all the bridges and have a beautiful view of the river.” This summer, the rooftop deck is being remodeled so Albright isn’t able to utilize the area as much as she’d like. “I am in absolute withdrawal right now,” she said. A few blocks away on Washington Street, residents at Bartley Lofts were hanging out at their rooftop pool. “The pool really sealed the deal for me,” said resident Kate Kelley. “It was a big selling point. My husband said, ‘Oh, boy.’ He knew we weren’t going anywhere else once I saw that.” Kelley, who works Downtown as a financial adviser for New York Life Insurance Company, traded a twohour commute in downtown Balti-

more for a two-minute commute in Downtown Toledo. The rooftop lounge area also features a grill and periodic wine tastings, Kelley said. “Everyone congregates here in the summertime. You get to know people. It’s like ‘Melrose Place’ in a good way,” she joked. “You make a lot of friends up here — and a lot of friends in the city when you tell them you have a pool.” Having a great vantage point for fireworks is another perk of access to a Downtown rooftop, said Bartley Lofts resident Emily Lamb. “Fourth of July is perfect,” she said. “You can see the Mud Hens as well as Downtown, Maumee, everywhere.” A Downtown building with a rooftop patio offers “the best of both worlds” — walking distance to coffee shops, bars and restaurants, but also a “backyard” oasis to hang out in at home, Kelley said. “I spend a lot of time up here,” she said. “I’m spoiled by the view and the pool.” A few blocks away, Isaiah Harris, 16, who is living in Toledo for the summer with his dad at La Salle Apartments on Adams Street, said he likes to use the rooftop for entertaining friends. The spacious patio that stretches the full length of the building. “It’s really nice when you have visitors,” he said. But his favorite part of his Toledo backyard is watching sunsets. “The one thing I love personally is watching the sun turn different colors,” Harris said. “It’s just amazing.” La Salle resident Jasmine Cogdell likes to use the roof to write songs and play with her Yorkshire puppy, Tokyo. Even though it’s a shared space, it feels private because most people keep to themselves, Cogdell said. “I come up here to write, to drink. It’s peaceful,” said Cogdell, a Bowling

Green State University student studying special education. “I like to sit up here and chill. It’s nice to have this.” La Salle resident Michael Seay also enjoys the roof as much as possible. “I live up here in the summer,” said Seay, who said he likes to grill out and entertain guests. “It’s nice to be Downtown. I live here for convenience, for getting around.” His roommate, Nick Amrhein, a photographer, said he likes to utilize the rooftop for photoshoots. The Commodore Perry Apartments on Jefferson Avenue doesn’t have a rooftop patio, but is “very petfriendly” and offers a small private “dog park” area for resident dogs to interact and do their business while their owners to sit and talk, said resident Kristen Mollenkopf. Aaron Bonnough moved Downtown to the Standart Lofts about two months ago because he wanted a change. He was a little afraid he would miss his Springfield Township backyard, but now he says he shouldn’t have worried. “There are aspects I do miss about having a backyard, but there’s so much space up here. I was surprised how much,” Bonnough said from the rooftop patio of the Erie Street apartment building, which features patio furniture and a large grill. “I miss having a lawn — but I don’t miss having to mow it. “It’s a nice atmosphere to hang out in. I haven’t used the grill yet, but people are always up here,” Bonnough said. Albright said she loves living Downtown and has no plans to leave. “Anybody who has anything negative to say about Toledo, I’d like them to come to my home and stand on my roof and have a nice glass of wine or an iced tea and they will understand why it’s a great city,” Albright said. “It’s what you make of it.” O TOLEDO FREE PRESS PHOTO BY SARAH OTTNEY

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer sali@toledofreepress.com

An executive creative director at an advertising company as far-reaching as Hart must possess a mix of passion, creativity and leadership. Randy Phipps said he fills all those criteria. The former senior art director for the company took over the creative director slot June 2. “It’s coming home, but, at the same time, it’s a fresh start,” Phipps said. President and CEO Mike Hart said he is glad to have Phipps back at the company. “We’ve followed Randy’s career and are pleased to have him back to lead our creative team,” Hart said in a news release. “Long ago, I learned that beneath Randy’s easygoing nature is a talented dynamo.” Phipps grew up in Butler, Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. His mother was an artist, and her creative inclination inspired him to pursue an artistic career. “She did it because she was passionate about it and she passed that passion on to me,” Phipps said. “Ever since I was young, I did a lot of drawing, a lot of creative thinking. It naturally kind of fell into place for me when I got to college.” Phipps attended Kent State University, where he majored in visual communication design. He found his calling when he joined Hart as a young businessman. “There’s a competitive nature to who I am, so that fits well into the advertising world,” Phipps said. From 1998-2006, Phipps worked at Hart as senior art director. “It was a little more hands-on, the day-to-day of creating designs and messages (compared to his new role),” Phipps said. In 2006, Phipps decided to transfer to Toledobased brand agency NORTH, which sent him across the globe for assignments. “Pretty much, you can put a dot on a map and I’ve been there,” Hart said. “There was a lot of world travel. That was intriguing.”

During his time abroad, Phipps worked on material and communications for the Sochi Olympic Games, the Australian Open and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Once he had explored the world, he decided he needed a change of pace. “I was ready to move past that and move into a stronger role,” Phipps said. “The travel was exciting, but, once I fed that need, it was nice to be back. I can focus on doing great work and being with family.” As executive creative director, Phipps has broader control and an overseer role. Phipps’ goal at Hart is simple: Bring out the best in the company. “It’s really to bring the creativity to a higher level and bring a little bit of international feel and flavor that I’ve gained through my previous job to Hart,” Phipps said. “It’s not a whole lot more difficult than that, elevating the level of work.” Phipps said he sees a few challenges ahead of him. He said Hart has one of the largest teams and one of the largest client bases in Northwest Ohio. “Being on top of design, marketing and messaging trends across a vast number of clientele is probably the biggest challenge,” Phipps said. Phipps said his positions at Hart have been ideal, because the company offered him the opportunity to do what he loves and meet quality people. “Being in a great town where I can raise my family but at the same time do tremendous work and work with tremendous people, this would be my dream job,” Phipps said. Phipps’ family includes his wife and son, who he said were very excited about the career move. “They were glad that I came back,” Phipps said. “They know a lot of people here and we’ve made a lot of connections with people here at Hart over the years.” Phipps prides himself on both his work and his ability to maintain healthy social relationships outside of the workplace. “There’s a sense of professionalism that comes with being in the position that I’m in,” Phipps said. “To be able to be in this position and to maintain a

good working relationship and friendships is what I’m most proud of. My job is what I do, but it doesn’t define who I am. The friendships I have built, that’s what I’m most proud of.” Phipps said young professionals should consider all ideas before deciding to act in professional situations. “Always keep an open mind,” Phipps said. “Great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere at any time. To have an open mind and always listen before you speak, that would be one of the best pieces of advice.” Phipps said he is grateful Hart gave him such a warm welcome. “I missed being here after I had left,” Phipps said. “Even though I had some great experiences and great professional times and I grew in those times, I always had a longing to go back.” O

EPIC plans networking event for young professionals As artists line the streets of Toledo with their work June 26, guests of EPIC Toledo’s latest event will be meeting, racing and finding clues they’ll use to explore the city. Sara Swisher, director of EPIC, said the T-Town Dash will provide an environment to foster social and professional connections. Cost is $15. “The T-Town Dash is an opportunity for young professionals in the community to come down and experience Downtown Toledo in the summer during an Art Walk,” Swisher said. “There’s a lot of people down here and it’s a good opportunity to learn about the different things Downtown has to offer.” Swisher said she wants interns

and employees who have not yet discovered Toledo, especially those who are from out of town, to take advantage of this occasion. “I hope they take back to everyone that there are great things going on in Downtown Toledo,” Swisher said. “It’s a very vibrant and exciting place to be.” As advisory council chair for the dash, Jessica Sloan is in charge of a lot of the delegation and planning of the event. She said her goals are similar to Swisher’s. “[Toledo] is really a place you can make a life,” Sloan said. “It’s a great town. I’d really like a lot of people to come and see what Toledo has to offer.” O — Sanya Ali

Sand-TAstic! Levis Commons summer festival returns June 27-28.

By Jordan Finney Toledo Free Press Staff Writer jfinney@toledofreepress.com

Eight-ton sand sculptures and two 8-foot sidewalk chalk murals will be on full display at the fourth annual Sand-Tastic! festival, hosted June 27-28 by The Town Center at Levis Commons in Perrysburg. “Northwest Ohio as a whole is a very artsy area,” said Casey Pogan, marketing director for Levis Com-

mons. “We have the Crosby Festival, the Black Swamp Arts Festival… our area really thrives on art. Sand-Tastic! has morphed into something that’s still fun, but artsy.” Chad Hartson, owner of Napoleon -based Ice Creations, will oversee the sand sculpture projects for the fourth year. They are one of the most popular features of Sand-Tastic!. “I went to culinary school to be a chef and my last year of college I took a bunch of sculpture classes,” Hartson

said. “It was something I loved to do and had a passion for so I forgot about the culinary stuff I was doing — other than ice carving — and focused on the sculpture side of things.” The sand sculptures take three days to finish, with Hartson working on them 10-12 hours each day. In the past, he’s carved everything from a “Toy Story” scene to a prisoner of war to an elephant. “For a lot of artists, the stuff we do is ‘not really art.’ My challenge to them

is ‘Let me see you do it,’” Hartson said. “It may not be your typical form of art — not paintings or drawings — but it is art. The art world is so vast and sand is one of those forms that people don’t really think of as art until they see it as an elaborate display.” Pogan said that Levis Commons has hosted parking lot parties, wine tastings and 5K races but the “art-inspired events” typically draw the biggest crowds. Last year, despite pouring rain on Saturday, Levis Commons’

traffic counter counted about 15,000 attendees at Sand-Tastic!. However, this year’s event organizers said they hope to attract 15,000 - 20,000 people to the event. “There’s nothing like it in our area. You can have it be one giant play date,” Pogan said. “Kids are getting out of school and need a reason to get together with friends and parents will be able to catch up with each other, too, while their kids are busy playing. n SAND-TASTIC!

CONTINUED FROM 15 “This is a great environment for reuniting.” Activities for children include a John Deere Gator track with miniature mobile tractors, bounce houses, water tables with squirt guns, a community sandbox, obstacle courses, and hands-on science games courtesy of Imagination Station. For especially eager sandcastle builders, free lessons from professional sand sculptors will be offered in the community sandbox on Friday and Saturday from 2-2:45 p.m. In addition, live music entertainment will be provided by DJ Paul Hernandez on Friday from 3-8 p.m. and by Jeff Stewart on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. The Toledo School of Arts’ Steel Drum Band will perform on Saturday from 6-8 p.m. Businesses at Levis Commons plan to have normal business hours throughout the weekend and encourage visitors to take a break from the heat and check out their shops. “People just have so much fun with the sun and sand sculptures and friends at Sand-Tastic!,” Hartson said. “The sand sculptures will be up at Levis Commons for about a week before they get taken down. Sand is a disposable art where it eventually has to get taken down. For me, the creating process is what’s most important. There’s this excitement that goes into creating a sculpture and seeing it finished. I want everyone to have that same experience — watching something beautiful built before your eyes.” O

A Toledo tradition since 2005

Grumpy’s On the Go food truck hits the road By Danielle Stanton Toledo Free Press News Editor dstanton@toledofreepress.com

Grumpy’s, the popular Downtown eatery known for its Garbage Salad, will soon be trucking the favorite meal around Toledo in its new food truck, called Grumpy’s On The Go. Starting June 21, the Grumpy’s On The Go truck will be parked 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday at locations yet to be announced, and will be stocked solely with the eatery’s signature Garbage Salad, said the truck’s driver, Maggie Bauman, whose mother and aunt own the 30-year-old business. “Our main seller is the Garbage Salad and our clientele is the work crowd and we can only cater to Downtown,” Bauman said. “There’s Perrysburg and Sylvania people who can’t eat Downtown on their lunch break and there’s such a demand for it. This is a perfect venue to get people what they want and they want the Garbage Salad.” On Saturdays, the truck will be parked outside Grumpy’s at 34 S. Huron St., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., but during the week, Bauman said she is still trying to nail down locations. “As of now it’s definitely going to be Harold Jaffe Jewelers on Talmadge Road one day a week,” Bauman said. “We would definitely like to spread out and

be at different places every day.” On Thursdays the truck will park at Arrowhead Park in Maumee and Bauman has also reached out to ProMedica about adding hospitals to the schedule. “I’ve been in touch with the administration and right now, they are creating a system-wide policy for hospitals regarding food trucks so they said they’d get back to me in a couple weeks,” Bauman said. Finding locations is a “tricky” business, she said, because Grumpy’s doesn’t want to “step on anyone’s toes.” Their goal is to find locations with parking lots, she said. The food truck will sell only prepackaged Garbage Salads made at the Downtown deli. The signature Garbage Salad comes in four varieties: regular, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Toppings include bacon, chicken, tomato, onion, mushroom, raisins, croutons and four cheeses. The salad comes with a homemade poppy seed dressing. All salad toppings will come on the side of the pre-packaged salads, Bauman said. Cookies, soda and water will also be available for purchase. Grumpy’s got the truck in March and has since been outfitting it to be ready for customers. On June 10, it was being vinyl-wrapped. n GRUMPY’S CONTINUES ON 18

stand behind you.” If you do not have that support system to back you up, it becomes challenging. I’ve had a lot of restless nights. I work a full-time job and I’m in the studio at 3 o’clock in the morning and then when I get off work I have to tend to my daughter and make sure she’s OK. [When she was hospitalized, I still had] to meet these engagements. I could not have done it without my family at all, even my sister was able to step up and lend a helping hand. Martini Rox: Your last release was 10 years ago. How would you describe your music now? Sasha P.: My music is very real. I was very honest on my album and I was very afraid to put it out because I feel I was a little too honest. I had to experience life and I’ve experienced it definitely. The ups and downs and the roller coasters and everything you can possibly experience, I went through it and I express everything in this album. I try to be as honest and as real as possible. I’m a very shy person. I’m a very private person. Releasing this album was very scary for me. I’m surprised that people still believe in me and they really, really support me. I haven’t done music or released anything in about 10 years so to have people say, “Yes! You’re doing it! Don’t stop this time!” That was enough for me to say, “I’m not going to stop.” I almost cried on my release date because of the response that I got. A lot of times it brings me to tears and it’s kind of overwhelming. Download the EP, “No More Questions,” available on iTunes.

The truck also needed to pass an inspection by the health department, Bauman said. Grumpy’s is owned by Bauman’s mother, Sara Bauman, and Bauman’s aunt, Jennifer Shemak. Bauman is the third generation to come into the business that was started by her grandmother, Connie Horn, and her husband, Jeff, at their hardware store on Broadway Street in 1984.

So when I found myself back in Toledo, it just made sense. It’s an incredible opportunity and I’m so blessed to have my family business.” Bauman will announce future locations of the food truck on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. O

oledo native Sasha P. has always had the “It” factor. She is blessed with a beautiful voice with a range that will give you goosebumps. Sasha started her paid singing career at 5 years old. She honed her skills singing in the church and as a teen she became serious about recording and discovered her talent for songwriting. Her first project produced a local hit single, “Beat the Block,” that remained in rotation on The Juice 107.3 for weeks. Although Sasha possessed plenty of vocal experience, she recognized that she lacked life experience. After high school she took time off to go to school, figure things out and find her place in life. Now 10 years later as a fullgrown woman, mother and a teacher, Sasha has experience and is ready to share her heart with all the fans who never stopped believing in her talent. After everything she has been through, you can only imagine the anticipation for her birthday/EP release party last month where the city came out to support her new EP, “No More Questions.” It has some of the year’s best features from Toledo’s most talented musicians. Martini Rox: For women who think they can’t do it, tell me how you are able to balance recording and motherhood? Sasha P.: It’s hard, it’s hard. When the [release party] event was over I definitely had to shout out to my parents. They were like, “Sasha, if this is something that you really want to do, we are going to help you with your daughter; we know that you are a single mom. If this is what you want to put in your heart to do and invest in, then we are going to

“My grandparents had a hardware store and [Shemak] opened up a deli counter in back of Horn Hardware,” Bauman said. “That’s why some of the classic food is named after tools. They were doing so well with the food bar, they closed down the hardware store and opened up Grumpy’s.” When Bauman’s grandmother died four years ago, Bauman’s mother returned to Toledo from New York, where Bauman was born and raised, to take over ownership

Two young children run around with corn dogs. Caramel apple lollipops pass from hand to hand. This is not the picture that immediately comes to mind when one thinks of a practice session for a rock band like OnceOver. This band has been around for almost 15 years, frontman Steve Dwyer said in a recent interview, so the atmosphere is far different than the traditional rock ’n’ roll setting. “If our band was a kid, it would be getting their temps,” Dwyer said. “It would start getting their license soon.” This year, the band plans to release its sixth album, “White Raven,” alongside Tropic Bombs, another band that Dwyer and bandmate Nick Archer play in. The release concert was slated for June 20 at Toledo’s Mainstreet Bar & Grill. The original OnceOver was founded in 2001, and has gone through multiple member changes throughout the years. The current members are Dwyer, his brother Paul Dwyer on guitar, Colin de Saint Victor on guitar, Archer on bass and Bruce Stelter on drums. Dwyer and his brother have a musical past, as their father is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music. He

holds a bachelor’s degree in composition and a master’s in guitar performance. “We grew up in environments that were very musicsavvy,” Dwyer said. “Most people kinda have a passion for music from a super-young age, I was one of those people,” de Saint Victor said. “I started playing guitar in maybe fifth grade and I spent countless hours playing when I was younger and just never quit.” De Saint Victor and Dwyer said their fellow members have little or no formal training for the instruments they chose to play in this band. “[Dwyer] had high school stuff at least, like orchestra, choir, that kind of stuff,” de Saint Victor said. “[Archer] took a little bit of guitar lessons when he was a kid but, other than that, I think it’s safe to say we were all self-taught.” Dwyer said. Dwyer and de Saint Victor talked about their fan base as it is now. “We’re like 30 and people our age don’t really go to shows,” Dwyer said. “The fan base stays the same age, almost,” de Saint Victor said. Some of their mainstay fans go to great lengths to show their loyalty, from bringing their now-adult children to shows to getting tattoos of the band’s logo on their bodies. n ONCEOVER CONTINUES ON 20


20 Star “I would say we’ve always had this core set of fans that are super die-hard but on the outer shell of that there’s been a lot of weird fluctuation,” Dwyer said. The group also jokes that they have had their share of interesting fan experiences, from injuries to pregnancies and all sorts of strange behavior in between. De Saint Victor said the challenges of OnceOver do not mirror the challenges of younger bands that fight over creative differences or get tired of seeing one another. “We’ve been together for so long the challenges now are way different than the challenges when we were 20,” de Saint Victor said. “Everybody’s got kids. It’s mostly an issue now with scheduling and making time in our lives to still do this.” The new album focuses on overcoming life challenges, from death to addiction to dealing with bullies in the professional world. “Kind of assessing and taking a step back, understanding some of the darker parts of your life and learning to grow from them,” Dwyer said. “Whether that be the death of a family member or a personal struggle and overcoming what seems to be insurmountable.” Following “The Prelude,” the album begins with a song titled “The Death of You,” and ends with “The Locus of Control.” “[The first track is] semi-inspirational but comes from a dark place,”

Dwyer said. “The end of the album is kind of a positive note where it’s like you’re in control of your life.” Musical inspiration comes from the members of the band coming together, not necessarily all at once, to conceptualize, write and play. “I’d say our songs come from an inception point,” Dwyer said.“We work on songs together but normally it comes from one or two ideas that kind of sprout something.” “Every song is definitely not started and ended with everybody’s input, which is probably the way it should be,” de Saint Victor said. Paul said their goal with this album is not fame and fortune, but sharing their music with the audience that made them the band they are today. “We’re not trying, at this point,

to make money off of it,” Paul said. “We’re really just into getting people into the music and kind of networking with people and bands.” The group will work on an expanded touring schedule, within drivable distance. “We have little pockets of fans in a lot of the cities around us,” Archer said. “This year, we’re trying to make a little more of an effort to play out of town.” The next year will also see a little bit of separation followed by endless hours dedicated to their next record, which is already in process. “It’s some of our best stuff ever, I would say,” Dwyer said. “It needs a lot of work and we’re not that far into it.” “As soon as we release an album, it just repeats,” de Saint Victor added.

Newlyweds try again for ‘authentic coffee experience’ in BG By Matt Liasse Toledo Free Press Staff Writer star@toledofreepress.com

When their first Kickstarter campaign failed to raise $60,000 in December, Ben and Cassy Vollmar went right back to work to get their potential future coffee shop open. Although “bummed” about the campaign, Ben said he was excited to see the community begin to jump on board with his project. Since December, community members and other coffee connoisseurs have approached Ben and offered help. “A lot of people reached out and because of that, we found other investors, which is part of the reason why this Kickstarter has a lower goal,” Ben said. Ben said he appreciated the help of the community members, especially since the first Kickstarter campaign didn’t have much social media presence behind it — another difference about his current campaign. Ben said the new campaign looks a lot better because of what he learned from the unsuccesful one. The couple’s current campaign, which ends at 6 p.m. June 22, aims to raise $20,000. If the goal is met, the couple plans to open Flatlands Coffee at 138 N. Main St. in Bowling Green, in the same strip as On the Edge Tattoo Studio and Finders Records. Together, the two want to offer “an authentic coffee experience.” “[Our vision is] just to create a welcoming, creativity-inducing atmosphere where customers can really enjoy the uppermost quality in terms

of service and product,” he said. “Our mission is to bring the best in the country to Bowling Green, Ohio.” The couple has added to their original business model which, Ben said, sets them apart from other coffee shops on a national scale. “We have made good partnerships with numerous roasters,” he said. “We’ve been researching for so many years and we’ve found just outstanding roasters. “What we plan on doing, from season to season because coffee is such an agricultural product … we will taste all different roasters and pick the best of the best and bring those coffees into our shop. “That concept has been done and is being done by coffee subscriptions out there. ... It’s a pretty big fast-growing trend,” Ben said. “It’s getting a lot of attention and people like to know that they’re getting top-quality, but ironically it’s never been done in a coffee shop setting.” The couple has even picked some early favorites including Kilenso Mokonisa, an Ethiopian roast from Counter Culture; Las Mingas, a Colombian from Cuvee; and Costa Rica Los Lobos from Populace. Ben said the first Kickstarter only reached out to locals in Bowling Green. With this one, the Vollmars are trying to maximize their success by sharing how this makes them unique to the industry. “At this point, most of our backers are from all across the country,” Ben said. The coffee shop would offer many different brewing methods, including a siphon pot (Ben’s favorite), pour-

overs and an espresso machine. “We’re always trying to perfect, tweak and make the coffee taste to its

Your Tarotgram and Horoscope

June 22 – 28, 2014

Events: Venus enters Gemini (23rd); New Moon in Cancer (27th) Aries (March 21-April 19)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Women are a part of important events this week. Offers and ideas conveyed by women will be highly influential. New outlets for creative potential are dangled under your nose, but evaluate these cautiously. Remain true to yourself; don’t get pulled off course by relationship dramas.

New entertainments and ideas become available. Others may do things that upset your apple cart on Wednesday. If expectations are dashed, future options must be reconsidered. Clever women offer advice. You will have to learn new things to accomplish emerging goals.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Changing conditions around work and co-workers continue; upheavals are possible. Tasks or phases must be completed by August, but it seems like wheels are spinning for naught. A property or domestic situation hits critical mass after Wednesday. Better choices begin to emerge.

Transitions, endings and beginnings come in pairs as the week begins. If efforts at repairs get out of hand midweek, it may be time to write off a lost cause. Evaluate the depth of your attachments and obligations. Weekend discussions lure you toward new possibilities.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Your feelings are on a switch; some are being turned off, no longer endurable. More attractive options are available. Decisions about money, possessions, and commitments may have life-changing effects. Strong attractions lead you down new paths as the weekend arrives.

People come out of the woodwork to request your special talents. Midweek upheavals stir up philosophical questions: right or wrong? Do I or don’t I? External transitions or upsets destabilize prior agreements. Help and understanding arrive on Saturday night.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Personal and life-path situations are at a tipping point. Sudden changes around job or family members rivet your attention. Evaluate feelings of obligation; make sure efforts will be appreciated before acting. Discover critical hidden goals through talking to others.

Early in the week, responses stir insecurities about the status of ongoing efforts. Seek interpreters and intermediaries. Past efforts may be overturned by unexpected discoveries and distressing exits. A partner helps restore equilibrium with a holistic, multilevel approach.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

This week brings an influx of social activities around family and friends. Information overloads are possible. Inner knowledge struggles to reach conscious awareness. Look for hidden interconnections after Thursday. Friends beckon you toward cutting-edge projects.

Ideas and information flood your view as the week starts. Attention is divided, or jobs are juggled. This can lead to errors made in haste; be cautious. Your ability to manage changes in your daily flow is tested. The basis and purpose of relationships is re-evaluated on Saturday.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Connections to people, jobs, and things are at a crossroad. Analysis of choices requires a blend of idealism and pragmatism. Outworn loyalty or sentiment can keep you stuck in the past when the future is calling. Partnership balances require scrutiny and adjustments after Thursday.

Other people’s upsets that happen this week may not be much of a surprise to you. You saw it coming and consequences are playing out as predicted. Pride goes before falls. This is a good weekend for a little road trip. Spend Saturday broadening horizons and landscapes.
