Good times, Hag’s lament still resonates good cause I A

s a current board member and former chairman of the board of the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, I have repeatedly witnessed the impact of the organization and the dedication of its employees. It is with great pride that Toledo Free Press is in its third year serving as one of the media sponsors for Smoke on the Water — Ribs for the Red Cross, presented by Columbia Gas of Ohio. When you think of summer in Downtown Toledo, your mind may wander to boats on the river or hot nights at the Docks. But for those with a taste for hot ribs, cool music and philanthropy, Smoke on the Water rules the riverfront as the Thomas F. POUNDS summer’s sweetest weekend. July 30 through Aug. 1, the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross will benefit from a terrific line-up of local rib vendors and national concert acts such as Gin Blossoms, MiniKiss and Kentucky Headhunters. With tickets at just $5, there is no better bargain to be found, especially as the event sends funds to the local Red Cross. In the aftermath of this spring’s devastating storms and tornadoes, we are proud to support the local Red Cross and our local businesses, especially the rib vendors who make the riverfront smell so wonderful throughout the weekend. The annual Famous Dave’s Pulled Pork Eating Contest will take place July 31, and the Judges’ and People’s Choice Awards for Best Ribs will be presented Aug. 1. Music includes Toledo School for the Arts (TSA) Steel Drum Band, Chris Shutters Band, Polka Floyd, MiniKiss, Jason LaPorte, Faux Paus, More Than Me, Kentucky Chrome, Gin Blossoms, TSA Urban Jazz Collective, 9 Lives, Melanie May and Kentucky Headhunters. Tempting festival food will include ribs, roasted nuts, grilled corn, elephant ears, blooming onions, fries, smoothies, steaks, hamburgers and hot dogs. Aug. 1 is Family Day and Military Appreciation Day. Aug. 1’s bands will be closer to country music than hard rock music. If you have been watching the aftermath of the June 5 tornadoes that ravaged our area, you should be familiar with how quickly and efficiently the local Red Cross is when responding to a challenge. On Page A4, Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross Regional Director Tim Yenrick write about some of the organization’s most recent efforts. Take time this weekend to enjoy some great food and music and support a good cause. Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star. E-mail him at

Silver)” The record, which one that year’s Academy of Country Music award for song of the year, is a downbeat rumination on the state of the union that remains so relevant it could have been written this morning. The song slowly cruises through a litany of worry; the stability of U.S. currency, the impact of war, gender roles, problems with the automotive industry, drug abuse, lying politicians and the fight for liberty. The chorus is at first desperate and sad — “Are we rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell?/With no kind of chance for the flag or the Liberty Bell?/I wish a Ford or a Chevy would still last 10 years like they should./ Is the best of the free life behind us now and are the good times really over for good?” The song ends on a note of hope that looks naked on the page, but issued from Hag’s weathered, timeless voice, is as inspiring as any cinematic vista: “Stand up for the flag, and let’s all ring the Liberty Bell./The best of the free life is still yet to come and the good times ain’t really over for good.” If “Are the Good Times Really Over” were released today, it would be Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity’s new theme song by tomorrow. And I have no doubt that as events and history cycle through their unstoppable paces, there will be a day decades from now when “Are the Good Times Really Over” will retain its relevancy and will again speak for the times. Intellectually, I know there are people who will be as attached to Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber as I am to my Sting and Joe Strummer compositions. But on a heart and soul level, where music has its greatest impact, I’d rather be dying in Faleena’s eternal embrace than caught in one less lonely girl’s bad romance. Michael S.

Red Cross offers thanks for response to June tornadoes TO THE EDITOR, On behalf of the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, I would like to thank Northwest Ohio for the tremendous outpouring of support for those impacted by the June 5 tornadoes. Our community response is always generous beyond what we anticipate. It not only increases our ability to help those in need with speed, ease, comfort and compassion, but offers hope and support for those impacted. In every effort to be transparent with the community, I wanted to share that to date Northwest Ohioans have donated $278,103 to the Red Cross. Thus far, we have spent $181,142 to

aid those directly impacted, including meals, emergency shelter, cleaning supplies and grief counseling. This amount includes $45,000 transferred to community-based long-term recovery committees in Fulton, Ottawa and Wood counties, to support long-term recovery efforts after the Red Cross had met the emergency needs of our clients. We will continue to work with the long-term recovery committees on issues and needs as yet unseen or even imagined for those devastated by the disaster and we are ready to provide additional financial support based on requests from these communitybased committees. Additionally, we

have also pledged $31,200 to the Lake School District for emergency preparedness and safety training for students of all ages. We know these programs will help save lives for generations to come and ensure the community is better prepared should we ever experience another catastrophic event. The road to recovery is long, yet the contributions and support of our community offers aid and support hours after the event and will resonate for years to come.

Expanding our economic horizon through alternative energy


ust as bad money drives out good money, bad news seems to trump the good news nearly every day. And there is plenty of bad news. Every day this summer, we have followed the tragic saga of the BP oil leak in the Gulf. We have listened to those working on the leaking well and the cleanup; we have heard from those who are working to protect the coastal environment and those whose livelihoods are derived from the Gulf; we have watched BP and government officials position themselves to minimize the economic and political fallout; and we have wondered about the long-term consequences of the spill. While listening to the news about the Gulf oil spill, I have often wondered what a similar spill would do to the Arctic Ocean and ANWAR with all the additional complications of freezing temperatures, extreme weather, limited accessibility, thick ice and the summer ice floes. I have visited the oil installations on the North Slope and have been impressed by all the safety precautions in place; however, those same precautions were presumably in place in the Gulf, but were insufficient to prevent this tragic environmental catastrophe. All the economically feasible safety precautions in the world cannot guarantee that such spills will not occur in the future. While it is too early to know all the consequences of this environmental tragedy, I strongly suspect — along with many others — that this incident will or should accelerate the research and

development of clean energy and particularly But UT did just that. This act points to the imsolar energy. Even those whose livelihoods are portance of collaboration in the advancement of rooted in fossil fuels know that we cannot afford science and this is particularly true in the field of — financially or ecologically — oil spills such alternative energy.

nized a true global leader in this increasingly important and interdependent field. Where will all this lead? It is difficult, if not impossible, to say. For me, the award of this honorary degree stands on its own as a single act that is justified on its own merits. But I can also imagine that UT will continue to search out global leaders in alternative energy, develop connections, share knowledge and technology, collaborate in advancing the science needed for continued development and thereby advance its own interests here in Toledo, Northwest Ohio and the nation. The Gulf oil spill, the Exxon Valdez and the scores of less dramatic but significant spills elsewhere all point to the urgent need for the United States and the other nations of the world to develop as rapidly as possible economically sustainable clean energy. UT can be a major player in this changing energy paradigm. When UT President Lloyd Jacobs asked Al Jaber if he had any advice for UT, he responded by saying that the university needs to do a better job of “telling its alternative energy story.” Jacobs readily agreed, as do I. I also believe that the events of July 22 honoring Al Jaber of Masdar is an excellent first step in this direction.

Gary Anderson used to bring his daughter to Cullen Park almost every week. They’d get ice cream and she’d fall asleep in the car. Now he brings his granddaughter, Olivia, who just turned 3. “With Olivia, the tradition has continued,” Anderson said. Anderson is president of Point Place Business Association (PPBA), and like many local residents, he is concerned about the future of the park. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently proposed creating wetlands stretching across Maumee Bay from Cullen Park past the Summit Street lighthouse, totaling about 65 acres. “There’s no reason in the world why they should take a beautiful place like the bay by Summit Street and totally obliterate it with wetlands,” said Bob Kneisley, past president of PPBA and member of Visions for Cullen Park. About 200 Point Place residents attended a June 29 meeting where Craig Forgette, Corps project manager, explained the proposals. Howard Pinkley, unofficially dubbed “Mayor of Point Place,” sum-

marized the attendees’ responses to the wetlands proposal. “We had a big meeting here the other day. Three of them said they were for it and the rest of them said, ‘Hell, no, get lost’,” he said. “Nobody is against wetlands,” said Vee Stader, founder of Visions for Cullen Park. “We just don’t want it here.” Kneisley said he has been attending dredging meetings for about five years. Sometime between June 8 and 15, he and Anderson saw a map depicting the Army Corps’ proposal to turn the water by Cullen Park into wetlands using dredged materials. Kneisley brought the wetlands proposals to PPBA, then called Forgette, asking the project team to come to Point Place and have a meeting with residents. “I called as soon as I got wind of the fact that they were going to put dredged material into the bay. I called and said I would like to have an urgent meeting with them,” Kneisley said. Forgette suggested coming in the fall. Kneisley asked for an earlier meeting, and they agreed on June 29. The project would create wetlands using sediment dredged from the Toledo Harbor shipping channel. Part of the causeway would be removed and

stone dikes would rise about 8 feet out of the water, reducing the strength of incoming waves and providing a habitat for fish. Many Point Place residents said the dikes would block the view of the bay. “To have that type of view, where else can you go?” Anderson said. “And we have it right in our backyard. It’s a beautiful, beautiful sight,” he said. Forgette said the dikes wouldn’t block the view. “The wall will look like a line in the water, and you’ll be able to see over it, and you’ll be able to see in front of it,” he said. Rich Ruby, a biologist for the Corps, said the top of the dikes would be lower than the existing shoreline and might improve the view. Trees and other plants could grow on the dikes, blocking the sight of smokestacks across the bay. Point Place residents also expressed concern that the wetlands would threaten eagles nesting near the bay and encourage growth of tall invasive plants that would block part of the view of the bay. These plants, common in the Great Lakes, have become a problem near Cullen Park in the past few years. Forgette said the Corps recognizes this problem. ■ POINT PLACE CONTINUES ON A8


Army Corps’ proposals threaten future of Point Place


Point Place residents face controversy over dike renovations By Mary Petrides and Betsy Woodruff TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS

A push to improve the dike in Point Place might pit residents against each other with what City Councilwoman Lindsay Webb described as an “us versus them” attitude. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers examined the dike in 2009 and concluded that it does not sufficiently protect the area, placing the dike in inactive status. As a result, the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) began a 24-month de-accreditation process. If the dike loses its accreditation, hoWEBB meowners in the area that it protects will have

to buy flood insurance, which would cost about $1,000 a year, said Dale Rupert, a project engineer for the City of Toledo. Because the Corps declared the dike inactive, residents may not receive federal disaster assistance if a dike failure occurs. As part of the process of gaining FEMA and the Corps’ approval of the dike, the Point Place residents who live next to it — about 200 of them — must remove the plants, fence posts, pavilions, swimming pools, decks and other encroachments they put on it. Many of them would rather have the whole group pay for flood insurance than remove what they or their homes’ previous owners put on the dike, Webb said. At a meeting in Point Place on July 26, many of these homeowners expressed displeasure and called for a vote on whether to bring the dike up to standard. Webb said this issue will not be decided by a vote. About 1,200 homeowners live in the area protected by the dike,

but do not live directly next to it. They would not have to go to any extra trouble to bring the dike up to standard. City Council committed $900,000 to help pay to improve the dike. Webb said she hopes Council will commit another $400,000 next year, totaling $1.3 million. If the project costs more than that, homeowners will be appraised based on the square footage of their houses. Webb said this amount should not exceed an annual bill of $100 per home for 10 years. Webb said if homeowners have to buy flood insurance, the values of their homes will go down, decreasing homeownership in Point Place and increasing the number of renters. “When homeownership rates decline, neighborhoods decline,” she said. Howard Pinkley, known as the “Mayor of Point Place,” said he thinks the dike’s improvement is unnecessary for the protection of the area. “The Corps of Engineers think they’re God, that nobody can touch them,” he said.

Breastfeeding Gives Your Baby a Healthy Beginning August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, a campaign that empowers parents to choose breastfeeding as a way to optimize their baby’s health. Human milk is the perfect food for babies. In fact, no artificial formula can match its benefits because breast milk contains ingredients that aid in infant growth and development. Research has shown that breastfeeding can help reduce or prevent many childhood illnesses, such as ear infections, and can help prevent diseases like diabetes. While breastfeeding offers the best nutritional choice for babies, it’s not always an easy task for new moms to accomplish. ProMedica Health System offers these resources to help breastfeeding families: • Breastfeeding classes through The Toledo Hospital/Flower Hospital Preparation for Parenthood (419-291-5666) • Certified lactation consultants to provide assistance to patients in the hospital and after discharge • Complimentary breastfeeding WARMLINE (419-291-4577), a resource for questions • Breastfeeding supplies at the Mom & Me Boutique, on the campus of The Toledo Hospital • Coming soon: A breastfeeding support group for new moms

Ohio’s leaders face a daunting decision: jeopardize the region’s economy, spend hundreds of millions of dollars to preserve an environmental resource or risk significantly damaging Lake Erie. This problem exists because the Toledo Harbor shipping channel must be dredged annually. Without dredging, the channel would fill with sediment and become impassable, and the port would close. If the port closed, longshoremen, shipyard workers, truck drivers and rail yard workers who deliver and pick up goods from seaport terminals would lose their jobs. Many others would be hurt as well. “It would be farmers that grow crops that ship through Toledo’s grain terminal,” said Joe Cappel, director of cargo development at the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. “It would be steel workers that rely on the iron ore that comes through Toledo to make their goods. It would be consumers of electricity that rely on coal delivered to the port.” If the port closed, the impact would be global, Cappel said. All the industries that rely on the port for shipping, including the automotive industry, construction, refineries, grain traders, steel companies, manufacturers and electric utility companies would suffer. “That would impact thousands of jobs, and the economic impact of that is multimillion dollars,” Cappel said. Because the region’s economy relies on the shipping channel, Ohio’s leaders must risk the environmental stability of Lake Erie or spend huge sums of money to preserve it.

reasons for opposing the practice. Finding an alternative to open lake disposal presents an expensive, time-consuming challenge. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers does not believe open lake disposal of sediment dredged from the shipping channel significantly hurts Lake Erie. An Army Corps study, published in 2009, concluded that dumping dredged sediment in the lake does not significantly impact the environment. “It’s just dirt, you know, but it can get very complicated,” Cappel said.

‘It’s just dirt, you know’

‘This is not a natural phenomenon’

The problem is rooted in rich Midwestern farmland. Every year between 1.2 and 1.5 million cubic yards of dirt — much from Ohio and Indiana corn and soybean farms — washes into the Maumee River. Between 800,000 and 1 million cubic yards settle in the shipping channel, said John Watkins, the chief of the Ohio Department of Natural Resource’s (ODNR) Office of Coastal Management. That annual amount of sediment could fill the Downtown Toledo Fifth Third building twice, then a third time up to the seventh floor. More sediment enters the Great Lakes from the Maumee River than from any other tributary, said Craig Forgette, the Great Lakes Regional sediment program manager with the Army Corps of Engineers. To keep the shipping channel navigable, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has dredged it annually for about 100 years, Forgette said. Nearly all the dredged sediment gets dumped in the Western Basin of Lake Erie, a practice called open lake disposal. That’s where the controversy begins. Local environmental groups, Toledo City Council, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and ODNR believe that open lake disposal must stop. They cite environmental concerns and the increased cost of cleaning Toledo’s drinking water among their

The Ohio EPA and ODNR oppose open lake disposal in part because they believe it contributes to Lake Erie’s algae problem. Lake Erie has had algae problems for decades. In unnaturally large quantities, blue-green algae can make the water toxic, cause rashes on some people and raise the cost of purifying the water for drinking. Dead algae sink to the bottom of the lake and decay, using oxygen that fish and other aquatic life need to survive. Jeff Reutter, director of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program and Stone Laboratory at The Ohio State University, said the blue-green algae releases a toxin called microcystin. The levels of this toxin in Lake Erie are 60 times what the World Health Organization recommends, he said. Another species of algae grows in mats on the bottom of Lake Erie. These mats can break free and float to shore, clogging swimming areas, marinas and shorelines. Algae growth in Lake Erie peaked in the 1970s. Measures were taken to control the problem and algae levels decreased. In the mid-’90s, however, the algae problem began to worsen and is almost as bad as in the ’70s, said Thomas Bridgeman, UT associate professor of ecology. He said the past two years have been especially bad and scientists are not sure why.

Bridgeman said runoff from farms probably causes the increased growth in algae. Natural and chemical fertilizers contain high levels of phosphorus and nitrogen, which encourage growth of crops — and algae. “Right now, there’s not a really strong scientific connection between dredged sediment and the algae,” Bridgeman said. “There might be, but we just don’t know for sure.” There are differing opinions on whether putting sediment in Lake Erie is increasing the algae problem. The ODNR believes open lake disposal is making the algae problem worse, said Mike Shelton, chief of external affairs. “I don’t think we have hard data indicating that the sedimentation is causing those impacts, but certainly dumping sedimentation into the lake is not natural and it’s going to have some kind of adverse impact,” he said. Increased algae growth is not the only problem open lake disposal causes, Shelton said. Sediment takes a long time to settle, making the water cloudy. This makes it difficult for fish to find food. Scott Pickard, an ecologist for the Army Corps of Engineers, said the Corps does not think this is a problem. The majority of the sediment settles in minutes, and the rest of it settles within two hours, he said. Some of Toledo’s leaders disagree. “Studies have shown that 25 percent of dredged material placed in the open lake can remain suspended in the water column for up to 24 hours,” according to a Jan. 29 letter to the Ohio EPA from Mayor Michael Bell and Tom Crothers, director of Toledo’s Department of Public Utilities. The Ohio EPA agrees with the ODNR, said Dina Pierce, EPA spokeswoman. “What we want to see is an end to open lake disposal,” she said. “We’ve been on the record for quite a while saying that.” ■ SEDIMENT CONTINUES ON A8


A8 ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS ■ POINT PLACE CONTINUED FROM A6 “We will develop an invasive species control plan that will help us control these plants as part of the project,” he said. Ruby said the project wouldn’t harm eagles. “We’re as concerned as anybody else would be,” Ruby said. “We don’t have to impact our national bird.” Many Point Place residents remain unconvinced. “The beauty of the view would be compromised,” Stader said. “They have not come out and said why they want to do this so bad,” said Gene Kidd, chairman of Visions for Cullen Park. ■ SEDIMENT CONTINUED FROM A7 In an April 15 news release, Ohio EPA director Chris Korleski said, “While I certainly feel compelled to keep the port functioning, I cannot overstate my concerns about the environmental impacts likely resulting from the annual disposal of large amounts of sediment in the shallow western basin of Lake Erie.” When the Army Corps applied for a permit to dispose of sediment in Lake Erie this year, as it does every year, it requested certification to put up to 1.25 million cubic yards of sediment from the Toledo Harbor into Lake Erie every year for the next three years. Instead, the Ohio EPA allowed the Army Corps to deposit up to 800,000 cubic yards next year. After that, the Army Corps will have to apply again for certification. Pierce said the Ohio EPA did this to pressure the Corps to find a practical alternative to open lake disposal. In an April 15 letter to Lt. Col. Daniel B. Snead, the district commander of the Buffalo District of the Army Corps of Engineers, the directors of the Ohio EPA and ODNR said they are convinced open lake disposal of such a “huge” amount of sediment damages Lake Erie. “This has been our position for many years now,” they wrote, “and despite innumerable meetings, discussions, plans, Memorandums of Understanding, etc., no real progress on this issue has been achieved ... We cannot state our belief any more clearly: Open lake disposal of these huge quantities of dredged sediment in the Western Basin of Lake Erie is not environmentally acceptable to the State of Ohio and needs to be discontinued.” Several groups, including the Western Lake Erie Waterkeeper Association, are so opposed to the Corps’ disposal of dredged sediment in Lake Erie that they have appealed the Ohio EPA’s decision to allow any open lake disposal this year. The Environmental Review Appeals Commission will hear the appeal in August, Watkins said. Toledo City Council also opposes open lake disposal. It unanimously adopted a Jan. 19 resolution calling to “minimize open lake dumping to the greatest extent possible.” The resolution stated, “Open lake dumping by its nature degrades water quality and impacts the raw water that enters the City of Toledo and Oregon

Visions for Cullen Park, which consists of approximately 30 Point Place residents, has been discussing repairing the boat launch and adding benches, a pavilion, signs, restrooms, a beach and a memorial. The committee plans to meet again in three weeks, and Stader said it hopes to have its proposal ready to take before Toledo City Council by then. “We’re forging ahead,” Stader said. “They don’t have the funding for it anyway.” In the past five years, the Corps has been considering about a dozen locations around Lake Erie as possible sites for the wet-

water intakes by increasing turbidity and other sediment nutrients.” Tim Murphy, Toledo’s commissioner of the division of environmental services, said the council has passed a similar resolution annually for several years.

The hunt for alternatives Murphy said finding a permanent solution to the problem of sediment disposal will be difficult. The Corps is considering several projects that would use dredged sediment to build wildlife habitats and wetlands. Among the proposed projects is a roughly 65-acre wetlands area in Maumee Bay, bordering Cullen Park in Point Place. The Corps met nearly unanimous disapproval at a public meeting June 29 in Point Place. About 200 people attended the meeting. Members of the Army Corps of Engineers project team said the proposed Cullen Park project is not intended as an alternative to open lake disposal. The project would use about half of one year’s worth of sediment. “While we pursue small ecosystem restoration projects for the short term, we continue to look for larger scale projects that can use between 10 and 20 years of dredged material and provide large-scale ecosystem restoration benefits,” Forgette said in a July 16 email to Toledo Free Press. The Corps is considering another project in Toledo that would use 15 years’ worth of sediment. It would cost about $300 million, roughly $20 million per year. Murphy said he does not think this is an adequate solution. “Fifteen years go by, we’re having the same discussion again. It’s probably going to be a lot more expensive then. Fifteen years isn’t that long, really,” Murphy said. He said there should be limits on how much sediment enters the Maumee River. “Right now, you’re asking the Point Place community, the Toledo community, to deal with the sediment that didn’t come from an urban community like Toledo,” Murphy said. “The majority of Toledo is pavement; our 80 square acres of land is not contributing a significant amount of sediment to the Maumee River, yet we’re being asked to address it down here just because we happen to be where the port is, we’re at the mouth. It’s kind of unfair.”

AUGUST 1, 2010 lands construction using dredged sediment, Forgette said. It began looking at Cullen Park about six months ago, he said. Federal money could fund 65 percent of the project, but the Corps cannot pursue it without a nonfederal sponsor to provide the remaining 35 percent. Forgette said the greatest challenge would be finding a nonfederal sponsor. The Corps project team will meet with a small group, probably Anderson, Kneisley and Stader, in late August, Kneisley said. Stader said she hopes the Corps does not pursue the Cullen Park proposal. “If this goes in, we’re sunk,” she said.

Blank family helps other storm victim families find help Editor’s note: Toledo Free Press will follow the Blank family of Millbury for the next year as they rebuild their lives after a June 5 tornado destroyed their Main Street home. By Brandi Barhite TOLEDO FREE PRESS ASSOCIATE EDITOR

Ed Blank could have stayed a victim. Instead, he took a tragedy and became the unofficial spokesman for tornado relief. Blank said he tries to keep track of what money is available for tornado victims and who they can contact. He even made a list of people he knows whose homes were affected by the June 5 storm, which he estimates to be 75 to 100. “This is not about me,� he said. “I am going to make it. I have a good job. I work for a great company, but there are a lot of people who really need help still.� Blank, who has worked at Fiske Brothers Refining Company for more than 30 years, said people might wonder where the money they donate to the tornado relief is going. This is one reason he has become a go-to person for information and an advocate for making sure money donated to the tornado victims actually goes to them. Right after the tornado destroyed his house, Blank and his family received $95 for food from the Red Cross; $450 for bedding; $330 for

clothing; and $60 for shoes. Jodie Tienvieri, communications manager at the American Red Cross Greater Toledo Area Chapter, said apte , sa d tthee nonprofit comes in afterr the disaster to offer short-term help like food, waterr and clothing. The Red d Cross tries to provide thee same amount of moneyy to each family affected byy the tornado, so it doesn’t’t BLANK matter if the victim lives in n a million-dollar home or a regular house. So far, the Red Crosss has collected $278,1033 in donations, spendingg $181,142 to aid those di-rectly impacted, including meals, emergency shelter, cleaning supplies and grief counseling. This amount includes $45,000 transferred to communitybased long-term recovery committees in Fulton, Ottawa and Wood counties. Tienvieri said the Red Cross stopped fundraising only a few days after the tornado because it had enough money to cover its expenses. “We are still getting money in, even though we haven’t fundraised for a month and a half,� she said. While the Red Cross is committed to honoring donor intent, the nonprofit asks people to consider giving to the local disaster relief fund, which provides assistance for families who experience disasters, such as floods or

home fires. On average, the Red Cross responds to four fires per week, and typically those families don’t have insurance, said. su a ce, Tienvieri e v Usually, the Red Cross doesn’t receive enough d donations to cover a did ssaster, but because of tthe media attention surrrounding the tornado, as well as the unusualness of w FAMILY: ssuch destruction, the donations continue to come n iin, Tienvieri said. Michael George, cchairman of the Wood County long-term reC ccovery committee, said the Red Cross doesn’t usually R help out in the long term, but because of the extra money it has received, it has donated $35,000 to his committee. George is director of United Way in Wood County. United Way is the fiscal agent for the long-term recovery committee. George said the subcommittee of the long-term recovery committee hears requests gathered by a caseworker who meets with those affected by the tornado. The requests include rental assistance, deductible assistance, cell phone minutes, car repairs, medications, food, gasoline and temporary housing. So far, the committee has distributed about $21,000 of the $77,530 available. Blank has worked most closely with ISOH/IMPACT in Perrysburg. The faith-based nonprofit has distrib-



uted $40,950 in Andersons gift cards, as well as $19,162 in KeyBank cards and cash. ISOH/IMPACT also donated $34,460 in food, water and relief, in addition to a mobile home. “We are here to help to care for each other as Christ would have us care for each other,� said Lori Kazmierczak, office manager. “As long as funding allows, as long as we receive donations from community, we will continue to help.� Kazmierczak said ISOH/IMPACT has provided assistance to 278 families in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. And people didn’t have to lose their homes to receive help. Shattered windows, ruined yards and other property damage were all reasons to ask for help, especially when the repair costs cut into household budgets. “They are finding themselves unable to feed their families and unable

to pay their bills and those families need just as much support as anyone else,� she said. Kazmierczak said it is hard to distribute equally and need is determined on an individual basis. While $1,000 might help one family get just what they need, that might only be a dent into the problem for another family. Blank said he has received help from so many people that he doesn’t want anyone to think this crusade is about him. He has learned through counseling that people who aren’t affected by the tornado like to give to others to feel complete. One day, he would like to give back for the help he has received. “A lot of people are proud and don’t like handouts, but they have to understand that by taking the help, you are helping [the community] heal,� Blank said.

Bridge memorial sculpture nearing start date

Phone app helps drinkers get home


More than four years after a final design was chosen, construction of the sculpture honoring those who built the Veterans’ Glass City Skyway is on track to begin this fall. “The project has been a long time coming, but it’s really on schedule,” said Dan Hernandez, public art coordinator for the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo (ACGT). Hernandez said the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) contracted to build the bridge and then to revitalize the area affected by the construction process. That revitalization to build the memorial did not begin until after the bridge was completed. Veterans’ Glass City Skyway opened to the public in June 2007. The memorial design was announced in a May 19, 2006, news release. The sculpture will stand 40 feet tall and will be located in nearby Ravine Park, which is located near the bridge and will be renamed. Toledo Deputy Mayor of Operations Steve Herwat said the memorial will also serve as the permanent memorial for the five men who died during the bridge’s construction. Four died as a result of the February 2004 crane collapse, and another died when he fell off the bridge surface in April 2007. “I think it’s extremely important that the workers who died, in fact all workers who contributed toward the Skyway, be commemorated,” Herwat said. The city of Toledo will pay for the removal of the Ravine Park tennis courts. The park will then be renamed Tribute Park. ODOT and the bridge’s Tribute Committee want to begin constructing the sculpture this fall, Herwat said.


Getting home safely after a night of drinking is the focus behind Black & White Transportation’s new Smartphone applications and TXT 4 Cab program. “We believe in removing every impediment that is humanly possible for a human to order a cab if they have been drinking,” said Scott Potter, Black & White Transportation owner. “We’ve spoken with bar owners and they’ve told us they can’t have their bartenders be on hold all night and people have said ‘I don’t want to be on hold,’ or ‘I was in a noisy environment,’ ‘It’s busy,’ that kind of thing.” One solution Black & White Transportation is now using is TXT 4 Cab. By texting “RIDE” to (419) 322-6772 users can notify Black & White Cab of their location, pickup time and destination. “There are generations of people who text more than they talk and can do it as quickly as they talk,” Potter said. “Texting for a cab is revolutionary and so easy. You can do it while you’re on the dance floor.” The company hopes to have posters in bars by the fall with “smart codes” for area locations, making texting that much easier, Potter said. In addition to TXT 4 Cab, the company developed B4UDRIVE, an application that can calculate an individual’s blood alcohol content (BAC) by taking into account gender, weight and number of drinks consumed. If the application finds that users should have someone else driving, an icon on the screen will identify if they are within Black & White Cab’s service area and connect the user to the 24-hour dispatch center. If they are not within the service area, the number to the nearest cab company will be provided. The B4UDRIVE application is available for the iPhone, Blackberry and Android. Black & White Cab also offers a reservation system

that can be accessed by any Web capable phone at www. All applications and programs are free to use, Potter said. On July 29, Black & White Cab hosted “ Black & White Cab No Excuses Kick-off ” at The Blarney Irish Pub, 601 Monroe St. Representatives from Black & White cab were at the bar, letting the public know about the new programs and applications offered by the company. The event featured gift card giveaways, as well as a demonstration of the B4UDRIVE application, Potter said. For more information, visit

The University of Toledo acknowledged the importance of developing renewable energy at the global level when it granted an honorary doctorate to Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber on July 22. In 2006, Abu Dhabi mandated alternative energy research and development, creating Masdar Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (ADFEC). Al Jaber is CEO of ADFEC. UT President Lloyd Jacobs and former president Dan Johnson hosted the event that honored Al Jaber and the alternative energy discussion that followed. “It seemed to me, it was important for Masdar to understand what is going on in Toledo, just as it is important for Toledo to understand what is going on in Masdar because of their common interest,” said Johnson, who works in partnership with Al Jaber and Masdar as provost and CEO of Zayed University in the United Arab Emirates. The goal of Masdar is for Abu Dhabi to be a leader in renewable energy by developing commercially viable, sustainable energy solutions. The oil-rich nation decided that instead of waiting for technology to be developed and import it, it would invest in research and developing alternative energy, Al Jaber said. “We want to maintain our position in the global energy market. We wanted to start positioning ourself as not only oil and gas exporters, but we wanted to position ourselves as the energy capital of the world,” Al Jaber said. The Masdar initiative is made up of five parts; Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, a university partnership with MIT that focuses on the science and engineering of advanced renewable technology; Masdar City, a city to test and develop technologies

with a goal of zero carbon, zero waste; Masdar Power, with investments in concentrated solar power, photovoltaic solar energy and wind energy; Masdar Carbon, a focus on projects that reduce carbon footprints; and Masdar Venture Capital, a focus on investments within clean energy, environmental resources, energy and material efficiency and environmental services. The $22 billion initiative has collaborations with universities and businesses from around the world, Al Jaber said. UT has a similar commitment to advancing renewable energy as Masdar’s Al Jaber said. He said he was impressed by what UT and Ohio have accomplished in the development of solar technology. However, Al Jaber advised the university, it needs to communicate its accomplishments better. “[UT needs to] capitalize on what you have already built and accom-

plished and communicate it,” he said. “Through communication, we are able to share knowledge, share experiences and exchange our ideas. By doing all of that, UT will be able to attract talent, export knowledge and export intellectual property, at the same time attract R&D funding and investments.” Sharing knowledge and experience, as well as collaboration between the public, private and academic sectors is key to advancing renewable energy, Al Jaber said. “The three relationships are a must — public, private and academia. Academia will supply research abilities, human capital and intellectual contribution. Public will supply the required incentives and policies. The private sectors the end of the day, the private sector cares about the property value and that’s what we need. We want to make this commercially viable. If it isn’t, we’ll always be going in circles,” he said.

More businesses are banking with Key. Shouldn’t you?

“What good does it do the world for us to develop Masdar City in a commercial or financially unsustainable way? It won’t do anyone any good,” he said. “The point here is to do it in a way that is first financially sustainable, commercially viable and that meets our objectives in terms of our carbon footprint.” The U.S., which has demonstrated a capability to lead in a number of sectors, has potential to be a leader in the alternative energy field, Al Jaber said. The United States has the infrastructure and talent to incubate renewable energy, but has no market to further accelerate development, Al Jaber said. The creation of a market for the renewable energy requires policy change, he said. “Without policy, it would be difficult to incubate the industry or even attract investors or talent to work in the industry,” Al Jaber said. “I’m very convinced the policy that is being worked

on in the U.S., and helped by the U.A.E. … I have no doubt that in the very near future we will see a renewable energy public policy that is robust, to accelerate the establishment of the renewable energy sector and the U.S. leadership.” UT hopes to explore collaborations with Masdar in the future, but the awarding of an honorary degree isn’t to speed up that collaboration, both Jacobs and Johnson said. “This award of the honorary degree isn’t to do anything other than recognize his global leadership. It wasn’t to create a quid pro quo. It was to make a connection, but also to recognize him,” Johnson said. Masdar will explore possibilities of collaboration with UT, but Al Jaber will remove himself from the decision process because of his honorary degree, he said.

Yankees (Steinbrenner) beat Red Sox (estate tax)


s there ever a good time to have a family member pass away? If the goal is to leave less to your least favorite relative, Uncle Sam, and your family has a boatload of money, perhaps 2010 is it. George Steinbrenner passed away recently and under the current law, by passing away in 2010 it appears that his estate will not have to pay as much as $600 million in federal estate taxes. His baseball team, the New York Yankees, made it a habit to beat its riMark vals, the Boston Red Nolan Sox, and it looks like George has beaten the taxman, too. The way the federal estate tax works is that there is a number the government establishes that every dollar exceeding this number is taxed. Years ago the magic number was $600,000. Then it went up to $750,000 and then $1 million and then $2 million and finally $3.5 million. In the past, the tax on every dollar over these break points went as high as 45 percent. Under previous tax law changes, the estate tax was repealed in 2010. So the best year to die from a tax standpoint is obviously 2010. The question going forward is what will happen with the estate tax and how will it affect the typical family. The legislators were to address this issue, but have not gotten around

to getting it done so far. Because of Steinbrenner’s recent death, the activity on addressing this issue may be heating up. On July 15, Rep. Linda Sanchez (DCalif.) has introduced “The Responsible Estate Tax Act.” This bill would reinstate on a retroactive basis the estate tax to Jan. 1, 2010. It would keep the exemption amount of $3.5 million, but would make the tax progressive from 45 percent up to 55 percent, depending CLAIR on the size of the BAKER estate. It would also impose a surtax of 10 percent on estates over $500 million. This would not be good news for the Steinbrenner family if they make this tax retroactive to 2010. Some commentators think that making the tax retroactive is unlikely because of how long they have let it go without addressing it. Also, very wealthy families will have the financial resources to fight it legally if necessary. If the government was going to make this retroactive, they probably should have done so by now. In discussions about reinstating the law there has also been talk of making the break point on the tax $1 million. If this happens, it would affect many families. It is not that uncommon these days that the hard-working family may

have accumulated more than a million dollars and not even realize it. When they start adding up the values of their retirement accounts, real estate, money in the bank, investments, etc., getting to that number is not far-fetched these days. If a tax was put in effect that taxed every dollar above $1 million at 45 percent, this could be a chunk a change that many families would have to send to Uncle Sam. It will be interesting to see what the government will do in light of all the spending that is being done. What the average citizen can do to prepare for the possible effects of this is to establish a good estate plan. Whatever the estate tax exemption ends up being, there are planning techniques that can possibly double the amount of estate tax savings. Get with a good estate planning attorney to explore your options. A plan can be put in place to address many issues created by whatever the law ends up being. We’ll see what happens.

Local retailers are stocking their shelves for the upcoming school year with hopes of making a profit before the opening bell marks the first day of classes. Department stores and supercenters are slashing prices, breaking out the latest trends and even holding special events to attract parents and schoolchildren to their doorsteps as continued economic hardships have led to more frugal spending habits. “Consumers are looking for a deal and are a lot more choosy,” said Allen Snowden, store manager of the Kohl’s in west Toledo. “Do children really need a new pair of shoes or can they use the ones from last year?” Kohl’s is among the department stores that began promoting backto-school specials in July. Others will begin advertising for school apparel in early August. “[Sales] heat up the second week of August,” said Dave Stockwell, store manager of Dillard’s at Westfield Franklin Park. Stockwell added that he is using “different strategies” for marketing his products than he has in past years. In 2009, he aimed to steady the ship by making large price cuts to keep customers. This year, the focus is back on profitability. “It’s better than it was last year,” Stockwell said. “Maybe our markdowns aren’t quite as steep as they used to be. “Some people will spend a couple extra bucks to get better service. Some people will drive a couple extra miles to get better service. That’s

what we strive for.” Kohl’s takes a different approach by slashing prices on many clothing options for students. Snowden said the store’s size allows for a wide selection. “The economy’s really not taken off all that much,” he said. “I think we’re offering some really good deals to attract customers in.” Style is another aspect of backto-school shopping. While many districts now require uniforms, some stores still stock their shelves with the latest fashions. Dillard’s recently picked up Jessica Simpson’s new clothing line, while Meijer keeps up on the evolving trends for backpacks. Meijer also provides many items necessary for college students. “We are tying a lot of promotions with Facebook and Twitter this year, which makes a lot of sense when talking about [going] back to college,” said Frank Guglielmi, Meijer spokesman. Two stores are hosting back-toschool events to attract customers. Dillard’s has Kid’s Day, which will take place Aug. 14 and features price markdowns, as well as fun events for children. Meijer sponsors an annual backto-college event at its Bowling Green store Aug. 20. The event features food, a Guitar Hero contest and discounted items for students. The event runs from 10:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. “Retail has become about being innovative,” Guglielmi said. “Being privately held, we can be very nimble and react very quickly to ideas.” Stores, such as Macy’s, Target and Walmart, also have back-to-school selections. With a variety of shopping choices, parents and students have options when it comes to preparing for another year of classes.

BGSU steps up enrollment strategy with construction By Amy Biolchini TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

BGSU will welcome its second largest freshman class on record this fall with $200 million worth of construction projects. “It was no secret that we went through an enrollment dip for the past two to three years,� said Steve Krakoff, associate vice president for capital planning and design at BGSU. “Students visit campus and see construction and hear about all the buildings for the future, and conclude appropriately that this is a university that’s really doing progressive things,� Krakoff said, mentioning that freshman class enrollment for this fall is up 550 students from 2009. BGSU is actively constructing its first two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings. The $36 million Stroh Center, a basketball arena and convocation space, is located on Wooster Street and is the most visible project

as you enter Bowling Green from I-75. The Wolfe Center for the Collaborative Arts, the newest academic building, will house classrooms, performance spaces, practice rooms and gathering space. The Wolfe Center is already gaining national recognition for its signature design, Krakoff said. “The design architect Snohetta out of Norway teamed with a collaborative out of Toledo on the Wolfe Center,� Krakoff said. According to Krakoff, the university is investing $82 million to add two residence halls and two dining halls. They are scheduled for completion August 2011. One of the new residence halls, located on the south central portion of campus, is strictly orientated for freshmen. Designed intentionally to create informal discussion space, the 660-resident building is divided into living spaces for groups of 40 students. Residence Life Director Michael Griffel explained the divisions were deliberate so freshmen students could make connections with each other.

For life’s little urgencies... 4235 Secor Road, Toledo Conveniently located just north of Sylvania Avenue Mon. – Fri.: 5 – 11 p.m. • Sat.: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. • Sun.: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.


“There’s enough people to create a diverse sense of community so people aren’t so insular,� Griffel said. The freshmen residence hall’s first floor is a multipurpose space that can be used for group study, project meetings,

academic events and social functions, Griffel said. The second residence hall under construction on the northwest part of campus will have a similar first floor. Intended for sophomores and upper class students, the hall will feature

four-person suite-style rooms. “Students, as they mature and grow through their college years, need a little more independence and space,� Griffel said. ■BGSU CONTINUES ON A18

dining facilities on a U.S. campus,” Krakoff said. Several current BGSU students have commented on how parking has become an issue with the multitude of current projects. Krakoff said that both pedestrian and car traffic will be interrupted, but that it’s a sign of progress. “I think they’ll experience a university that is far more responsive to their needs,” Krakoff said. “What you’re really seeing is the first phase of renovations to campus that will continue on over the next decade.” Financing for the university’s construction comes from a variety of sources, from state funds for basic renovations to student-fee funded projects


Construction has just begun on the 30,000-square-foot McDonald Dining Center that will include dining, food preparation and retail food space. Plans for replacing the Commons Dining Hall are in design phases. The new dining halls are focused on integrating food and education in a “Cooking Channel” type atmosphere, according to Griffel. A significant portion of the kitchen will be in plain sight and menus will emphasize quality, fresh ingredients. “Should we be successful in getting certification, we believe those two dining facilities will be the first two freestanding LEED-certified

ice center and $14 million in minor energy conservation procedures including lighting and automated building systems; $15 million has been allocated to improving infrastructure, utility tunnels, a central

water chiller plant and extending IT capability to the easternmost parts of campus. “The university is so committed to student success and being contemporary,” Griffel said.

■ FAMILY CONTINUED FROM 20 I was aware of baby proofing, but the material lifestyle necessary to accommodate the curiosity and will of small children went beyond safety. As soon as each of our children learned to control their movements enough to gain ground, our material possessions came under constant and rapid fire.

A couch isn’t just a couch to a 2-year-old; it’s a balance beam, a trampoline, their own personal Mt. Everest. Its cushions are a completed puzzle begging to be deconstructed and strewn across a room. A DVD case is a code to be cracked open with its shiny circular tenant removed as reward for a job well done. In fact, each and every

household item is a physics lesson, a construction project, a challenge to be met. Even the most well-intended of actions by young children can put a strain on the welfare of a family’s material possessions.

up things like grape juice and milk without bothering to let dear old mom or dad know that said towel has been used for such and is now sitting crumpled up in the darnedest of hidden places. Of course, it’s also difficult to soak up every ounce when you’re new to cleaning, so anything that had been in the path of the spill also sits quietly in danger of permanent damage. Witnessing the magical allure of the trash can and the toilet that makes her parents and siblings throw frequent offerings into them, my 16-month-old can’t help but perform the act herself. It’s fairly difficult for a toddler to discern what is appropriate to feed to the trash can and the toilet, however, which puts any random object she can carry across a room and hoist above a rim at risk of being lost forever. Our children taking on the material world with such a no-holdsbarred demeanor has turned our once coddled possessions into an alternate ending for “Goodnight Moon.” Goodbye exposed cable and goodbye glass-top table. Goodbye nice chair and goodbye random pieces of silverware. Hello childproof locks and goodbye matching socks. Look out cat and anything that could go “splat.” Ironically, neither Mike nor I have ever lived in a dorm, until now. The unremitting war that has been declared on our stuff by our three children has forced us to let go of the idea that we can have nice, wellreasoned things for at least the next 15 years. We are resident advisers in a world of boundary pushing and chaotic self-discovery. We live in an 1,800-square-foot dorm with the pizza boxes to prove it. Considering the foolishness of purchasing anything not ruin-ready in the relentless storm of spilled milk, urine, vomit and other destructive forces that comprise a house with small children, I have started to fill our material voids with dorm items to match our dorm lifestyle. While fuzz-laden fuchsia bath towels may not have been my first choice in years past, their $3 price now screams, “You can have something new for once!” As much as we enjoyed our years of thoughtful young adult consumerism, Mike and I don’t miss the time, money and energy spent on picking out material possessions. Our resources are much better spent on the three little living, breathing things that mean more than anything in this world ever has before.

Beyond the different setting and our attention to students and staff who may benefit from counseling services, our expectations for success have not changed. In fact, our expectations are higher than ever because of what our community went through this past June. We are going to hold our staff and students accountable in the WITT classroom, in co-curricular activities, in extracurricular activities and in the community. We have witnessed firsthand the spirit of giving and togetherness that our community displayed in the aftermath of the storm and although we can never pay back all of the people who have been so generous and thoughtful, we can pay forward by producing 21st century learners who will positively impact our community in the future. â&#x2013; LAKE CONTINUES ON A23

A proposed athletic league that began taking shape after Toledo Public Schools (TPS) made drastic cuts to its athletics programs, has a name. The Three Rivers Athletic Conference (TRAC) announced it will begin competition in the 20112012 school year. The Three Rivers Athletic Conference will consist of 10 schools during its inaugural year. St. Francis de Sales, St. John’s Jesuit, Central Catholic, Whitmer, Clay, Notre Dame and St. Ursula will defect from the City League and join Fremont Ross, Lima Senior and Findlay. TPS decided to cut all junior high and freshman sports, as well as golf, cross country and hockey, after the school district’s levy failed in May. The cuts forced members of the City League who were not a part of TPS to reconsider their conference affiliations. Fremont Ross principal Jose Hernandez will serve as TRAC’s interim president for the initial two years and succeeding presidents will be determined by alphabetical order of the member schools. The league announced that a search committee will be formed to begin the search for a commissioner and a secretary/treasurer. The league will also host a contest involving students at all member schools to develop a logo that will lead to the development of a graphics package.

Program fights obesity, promotes creativity among students By Michael Stainbrook TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

Last year, students at three area elementary schools took part in an educational exercise program designed to promote wellness and fight childhood obesity. The students played sports from different countries, learned to count in different languages and enjoyed kid-friendly, healthy snacks that reflected foreign cultures. But this program did not originate in the minds of teachers; it came straight from local high school students. A trio of students from Notre Dame Academy and St. John’s Jesuit High School designed “Around the World: Destination Health” as part of ProWATKINS Medica Health System’s Fields of Green scholarship competition. Teams of two to four students submitted programs featuring creative physical activities, healthy snacks and education materials that elementary school teachers could implement. “We wanted to make exercise more fun for the kids and teach them how you can exercise and have fun at the same time,” said Rebecca Funke, who developed the winning program with teammates Alyse Krausz and Mark Brahier. Each of the three received a $5,000 scholarship, and each school that had a student on one of the 10 finalist teams received a $1,000 grant. “We realized that this would be a good opportunity to make a change in our own community,” Funke said. This fall, Fields of Green will once again offer high school sophomores through seniors the chance to earn scholarships for designing a

wellness program that local schools can implement. ProMedica Director of Community Relations Stephanie Cihon said the scholarship program sprung from a desire to increase community awareness about a serious health issue. She and Chief Communications and Public Relations Officer Barbara Petee considered several ailments, including heart disease and diabetes, before realizing obesity was a common factor for many of their ideas. “A lot of us need to think a bit more about what we eat and how to take care of ourselves,” Cihon said. Fields of Green began in 2008 by challenging students to develop a healthier alternative to traditional school lunch programs. Thirty teams submitted their ideas that year. The number doubled to 60 applications in 2009. “The real key for the success of weight loss in children is that it has to be very grass roots,” said pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Mark Watkins of the Endocrine and Diabetes Care Center. “You have to get these kids to make their own decisions about what they want to do.” Watkins said adult cooperation in the treatment process is the best way to help overweight and obese children. If a parent or legal guardian does not recognize a child’s weight as a problem it is often difficult to implement healthy lifestyle changes. Watkins said parents with no more than a high school education are more likely to have overweight or obese children. Childhood obesity can lead to serious health issues later in life. “Problems early, lead to problems late,” Watkins said. ProMedica also aims to increase awareness by using the Healthy Kids Conversation Map program to educate parents and their children. Parents learn how to make their money last while providing nutritious food

There’s an old saying that karma is a ... well, you get the picture, and to say that the sadage came to fruition for the former Buckeye might be an understatement. After being convicted on robbery and weapons charges, Clarett spent 3 and-a-half years in a Toledo correctional facility. For all the trouble he caused for the Ohio State program, his arrogant attitude and his reckless behavior, the general consensus was that Clarett was exactly where he belonged — behind bars. His short but illustrious career at Ohio State was relegated to the punch line of jokes for many, and any Buckeye fan’s lip would curl into a vicious sneer at the sound of his name. I was guilty, like many, of having a hardened heart toward No. 13. When reports surfaced, during his prison stay, that Clarett was taking college classes in prison, I snickered. When reports surfaced that he wanted to finish his college degree, I thought, “Yeah right.” I wasn’t ready to admit the possibility that Clarett had really changed, and I questioned the sincerity of his actions and words. But with news that Clarett had enrolled and begun classes during Ohio State’s second session of summer classes, my hard feelings began to melt away. It’s surprising how such a small gesture can change so many feelings. The simple act of taking classes on a campus where he was vilified for the past 8 years showed an immense growth in the former player. After all, Ohio State and Clarett battled like the Hatfields and McCoys for the better part of 2003. It couldn’t have been easy when Clarett walked into his first class July

I have looked forward to being back in school and I’m doing my best to fit in with other students. I don’t want to be a distraction or nuisance to the football team or to students on campus.” You would have to be blind not to see the immense growth in the now 26-year-old.

Work begins Aug. 2 on the Interstate 75 and 475 Interchange project that will take three years to complete the modernization of the 40-year-old interstate system in Toledo by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great project that will do important things for the community. We work for and with you together to manage it the best we can,â&#x20AC;? said David Dysard, deputy director of ODOT District 2 at a public meeting held July 27 at the Sanger Branch of the ToledoLucas County Public Library. The update project will widen I-475 in both directions from I-75 to Rushland Avenue, close existing on and off ramps at Central and Upton avenues and Jackman Road, reconstruct the Douglas Road ramps and build a new interchange at ProMedica Parkway for better access to Toledo Hospital and that area. The $63.9 million construction project will take three years to complete with the majority of the work

completed in late 2012, and resurfacing and bridge painting in 2013, according to ODOT officials. Two lanes will remain open to traffic on I-475 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and be reduced to one lane at night during construction. The Monroe Street onramp to eastbound I-475 will be closed Aug. 2 to eliminate merging traffic into the construction lanes. The update project will feature a new full-diamond interchange at ProMedica Parkway with a bridge over I-475 just north of Central. Access to Toledo Hospital will be maintained during construction as exit 19 off eastbound I-475 to Central and ProMedica Parkway will remain open until the new interchange opens in late 2011 or early 2012. The ProMedica Parkway Interchange will replace the onramps to I-475 from Central and Upton avenues, as well as the Jackman Road exit. The Upton/Kelly ramp to eastbound I-475 will be closed permanently in August. The onramp from Upton to westbound I-475 will be closed when the new ProMedica interchange is opened in 2011 or 2012. â&#x2013; UPDATE CONTINUES ON A30

Central will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Jackman to Upton for bridge construction NAVARRE during that same period. The Jackman Road exit off Westbound I-475 will be closed permanently after the opening of the new ProMedica Parkway interchange. The Sherbrooke Road Bridge over I-475 will be closed for rebuilding from August 2010 to 2012 as part of the project. The Douglas Road eastbound onramp and westbound offramp for I-475 will be closed for nine to 12 months beginning in the fall of 2010 or spring of 2011, said Dysard.

The Auburn and Central avenues and Douglas Road bridge abutments were moved last year to accommodate this project and the bridges will remain open during the I-475 construction. The current traffic configuration for the I-75 and I-475 interchange will be maintained in existing lanes and shoulders. The ramps from eastbound I-475 to Jeep Parkway and from North Cove Boulevard to westbound I-475 will be closed in August through completion of that section in 2012. The project will reconfigure the I-75 and I-475 interchange by adding another lane to the ramps from southbound I-75 to westbound I-475 and from eastbound I-475 to northbound I-75. However, these new lanes won’t be accessible until the future I-75 widening project is completed. Dysard said they don’t have funding yet for the I-75 project planned from LaGrange Street to I-280. A construction speed limit of 50 mph will be maintained on I-475 during the project. The speed limit will be enforced

by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Toledo Police, according to Toledo Police Chief Mike Navarre. ODOT officials stressed the importance of drivers slowing down and refraining from using cell phones in the construction zones for safety issues. The I-75 and I-475 Interchange update will be constructed by a local firm and workers, creating and maintaining jobs in the Toledo area.

AUGUST 1, 2010 The project was awarded to the E.S. Wagner Company of Oregon, which submitted a bid of $63.9 million for it. The project will be built on a fiveday workweek schedule with Saturday serving as a makeup day. “We will be hiring some full- and part-time union contractors for this project,” said John Wagner, vice president of E.S. Wagner.

Wagner said the construction project is one of the largest highway projects the firm has undertaken. The company is involved in the widening of Wheeling Street in Oregon for ODOT. A groundbreaking ceremony for the interstate update project was scheduled July 30 at Kelly Avenue and Bigelow Street in Toledo near the onramp to eastbound I-475.

Obama to visit Big Three plants in Mich., Ill. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will visit U.S. auto plants in Michigan and Illinois to highlight his administration’s decision to rescue General Motors and Chrysler last year and revitalize the U.S. auto industry. Obama plans to use trips to General Motors and Chrysler plants in Detroit on July 30 and a Ford assembly plant in his hometown of Chicago on Aug. 5 to discuss the progress in the U.S. auto industry following the government-led bankruptcies of GM and Chrysler. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama will acknowledge the decisions to save GM and Chrysler were unpopular with many Americans, but necessary to save hundreds of thousands of jobs and help rebuild the auto industry for the future. “The president believes that the decisions that we made around the auto industry are a parable for where we are economically. We had to make some tough and even unpopular decisions, but those decisions are laying a new foundation for economic growth and a brighter future,’’ Gibbs said. GM and Chrysler received tens of billions of dollars in federal aid to undergo swift bankruptcies last year and have begun to show signs of rebounding. GM, which is majority-owned by the government, posted a quarterly profit in May and has repaid nearly $7 billion in loans from the U.S. government, while preparing for an initial stock offering that could further repay taxpayers. Chrysler, which was placed under control of Italian automaker Fiat as part of its bankruptcy, posted a $143 million first-quarter operating profit. It has made sales gains during the spring and summer months. Ford did not receive federal aid and announced a second quarter profit of $2.6 billion amid sales that far outpaced the rest of the industry. It was Ford’s fifth straight quarterly profit.

Calling all fans: If you’re looking for a hot time and maybe a chance to be in a documentary about Rick Springfield, don’t miss the rocker’s Aug. 8 concert at Centennial Terrace in Sylvania. “The director and the producer came to me because they understood the whole fan connection that goes on with my shows, and they wanted to document that,” Springfield said. “They’ve been filming us around the world for the past six months.” Tentatively titled “An Affair of the Heart,” the film set for release in 2011 is being directed by Emmy Award-winner Sylvia Caminer and produced by Mel-

anie Lentz-Janney for Yellow Rick Road Productions, a company in Florida. “I’ve actually seen some footage and it’s pretty incredible what they’ve got,” Springfield said. “They have really hardcore fans that have gone through life changes and my music has been involved in that, and they go back to their homes and talk to the families about it all.” He said the film crew would be at a couple more shows in America, but didn’t know if they’d be in Sylvania. Springfield also has an autobiography, “Late, Late at Night” (Touchstone Fireside), due out in October. “It’s my life, and I’ve had a pretty interesting life. There’s a few shocking things in there, and a lot of things people don’t know. I figured I would be truthful in the book as I am when

I write songs; I’m usually pretty painfully truthful, so I’ve been truthful in there,” he said during a phone interview en route to the Los Angeles International Airport. “Certain elements relate to fame and success and the music business, but in the end it’s really a human story.” A story about a dashing Aussie who hit the charts in 1972 with the single, “Speak to the Sky,” rode out some turbulent music undercurrents, and was everywhere in 1981 with “Jessie’s Girl,” thanks to MTV and a role on “General Hospital.” He won a Grammy for best male rock vocal performance for that No. 1 song, which was featured on “Glee” this year. “[‘Jessie’s Girl’] was back on the charts again after 30 years; that was kind of cool,” Springfield said. “I’m sure there was a spike — certainly if a song, both their version and my version, were in the top 20 or whatever. I don’t even know really how they do that anymore. It used to be magazines and it would be the top 100 or top 40 and now the record industry is so messed up, I don’t know how you’d calculate that. “So I don’t follow it. I just put out new music. The last record I did, ‘Venus in Overdrive,’ debuted higher than any record I’ve ever had in my ca-

reer, so I don’t know what that means.” Released in 2008, Springfield called “Venus in Overdrive” the son of “Working Class Dog,” which also included the hits “I’ve Done Everything for You,” “Carry Me Away” and “Love Is Alright Tonite.” “Music for me is where it was just before ‘Jessie’s Girl’ hit. You know, the music industry was a bit of a mess coming out of disco and ballads and didn’t really know where it was going. And I didn’t have a record deal, so I just wrote a bunch of songs that I thought would be great to play live, and that became ‘Working Class Dog.’ “And that was the same approach we had with ‘Venus in Overdrive.’ We just wanted great songs that we could play live, the short power-pop songs,” Springfield said. “It’s the first time I’ve ever written a whole album with someone else; I wrote it with my bass player, Matt Bissonette.” While the 61-year-old star reprised his soap opera role as Dr. Noah Drake — and introduced rock man Eli Love — in recent years and he’s appeared on Showtime’s “Californication,” performing on stage is where Springfield wants to be. “I’m usually pretty shy in day-today life, so my only time to connect with humanity is when I play live,” he

RICK SPRINGFIELD said. “It’s a big party and I’m the host, and it’s great — I love it.” Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8 show are $37.50 and $23 in advance and $30-$44 the day of the concert.

From singing with Sarah McLachlan to performing next to wild cats, Ingrid Michaelson has had an interesting tour schedule this year. She called from a stop in Salina, Kan., after taking the stage for her first Lilith Fair in Denver. “It was really fun. I got to meet Sarah McLachlan and Emmylou Harris,” she said. “At the end, we all got up on stage and sang together a song that none of us had rehearsed. It was very casual, and very, very genuine. And Sarah McLachlan was sort of leading all of us, encouraging us to come over and stand next to her; it was really sweet.” Michaelson also made her debut at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in June. “It was hot,” she said of the show in Manchester, Tenn. “It was certainly a very good time; we had about 7,000 people in our tent.” The singer-songwriter also opened a few shows for Barenaked Ladies. Using intricately woven looped vocals as a backing, Michaelson delivered a buoyant a cappella rendition of R.E.M.’s “Nightswimming” at the Toledo Zoo in May. “We could look over and see cheetahs running around. It was definitely

the first time [playing a zoo] for me,” she said and laughed. The 30-year-old will bring her solo tour to The Ark in Ann Arbor for an 8 p.m. sold-out show Aug. 9 to support her new disc, “Everybody.” “[‘Everybody’] was just my attempt at writing a happy song and something for everyone,” she said. “At the core of us all, most of us anyway, you just want to give love and receive it.” Fans have been smitten with Michaelson’s fun folky-pop creations since she started her MySpace page in 2006. Then she discovered “Grey’s Anatomy.” “My mother told me there was this great show with all this great music on it and I should watch it. And I started to watch it and I became obsessed with the fact that I had to get my music on that show,” she recalled. “I got found on

MySpace by a licensing company that said we work with ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and that’s what was the trigger; I was like OK, yes, let’s do this. “So I started working with them, and they pitched my music to the ‘Grey’s’ people and they loved it right away. The ‘Grey’s’ people really helped me to get my foot in the door and get my name out there.” An Old Navy commercial put the whimsical “The Way I Am” on the air. “You have opportunities handed to you and then you have to work your ass off to maintain or progress at all,” Michaelson said. “I want people to take some sort of nutritional value from [my music] and hopefully use it during a hard time or through a good time; I just want it to be part of people’s lives in a positive way.”

Warsteiner Pilsner Bier has been brewed in a little town in the heart of Germany since 1753. It has been the absolute dominating brand among all German beers for many years. The German Purity Law of 1516 dictates this beer is brewed with no chemicals, additives or preservatives. Pouring a light straw color it has a smooth, rich full bodied taste wrapped in a thick creamy head. The ingredients lend themselves to the smooth taste with its forest spring water, tworow malted summer barley and all German hops. This beer is perfect for lazy summer days because of its clean, crisp flavors and a refreshing hop finish with no aftertaste.

Bonnie needs a loving home Bonnie is a 2-year-old beagle mix. She is everything that you would come to expect from a typical Beagle. Bonnie is like a new baby searching for a mom. She wants to be pampered and babied and will go out of her way to get as much attention as she can. She was transferred to the Toledo Area Humane Society from the dog warden so that we could find her a new home. This is NOT a dog for someone who likes things quiet. Bonnie will let loose with that big houndy yowl the moment she lays eyes on you. She sounds so sad when she gets baying that you can’t help but feel sorry for her and it’s hard to resist scooping her up in your arms and giving her a big hug. g Bonnie is a semi-active dogg that loves to use her nose and explore new things.

spayed, examined by a licensed vet, is up-to-date on her vaccinations, and is microchipped. Toledo Area Humane Society is located at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Arrowhead Park, Maumee. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Call (419) 891-0705 or visit the Website www.

She is great with children and her playful personality will always bring a smile to your face. Bonnie will make toys out of the strangest things. She will even toss her dog bones around for a while before she decides to eat them. Bonnie would have a ball searching for things hidden in the yard. This playful Beagle has been

The moment traffic no longer mattered.

There are moments when life is taken out of our hands and placed in someone else’s. In June, 9-year-old Parker was struck by a car and critically injured. The Life Flight nurse, Renea, focused on stabilizing him as they flew to the trauma center at Mercy St. V’s. His mom stayed right by his side, grateful for every breath he took. Parker’s story is one of the thousands of lifesaving moments made possible by the region’s first and most experienced critical air transport team. These are the moments you know you’re in expert, caring hands. The moments of Mercy.
