he Ohio Secretary of State’s office must treat the Lucas County elections process as a crisis situation and provide every possible element of oversight and guidance to ensure the Sept. 13 primary election is not compromised. The Secretary of State’s current administrative oversight does not provide confidence that enough is being done to prevent untold damage to the already wobbling integrity of Lucas County elections. It is no secret that the Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) has been under siege since Jon Stainbrook was elected chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party. For more than two years, Stainbrook and his associates have threatened to sue the BOE, have sued the BOE and have made professional life difficult for a number of people who committed no greater sin than somehow not behaving in a way Stainbrook wanted. His long quest for the appointment to the BOE, where such respected people as Michael Beazley and Dee Talmage once served, compromises and makes suspect its ability to operate legitimate elections. Stainbrook is accompanied on the board by his longtime attorney, Anthony Thomas F. Pounds DeGidio, who is there to vote as Stainbrook guides him and has shown zero inclination to bring an iota of independent thought or consideration to this most important of duties. The BOE was not perfect at its best, but there was progress being made as former administrators Linda Howe and Jeremy Demagall struggled with trying to devote energy and time to their jobs while under constant public attack from Stainbrook, who has yet to offer any constructive plans for the BOE, just a continuing headhunting mission against his perceived opponents. The recent warpath tactics to remove several Michael S. miller BOE employees, just weeks away from the next election, shows no moderation or willingness to cooperatively improve the situation. It is a scorched-earth approach that has the BOE existing in a state of fear and uncertainty. Secretary of State Jon Husted has not distinguished himself in serving Northwest Ohio. Did his office even perform the basic background checks on Stainbrook and DeGidio? Has his inclination to avoid dealing with the Stainbrook-created chaos granted de facto permission for the turmoil to thrive? His office first told the BOE to solve its own issues, then caved and allowed the Aug. 8 firing of two employees, one of whom, Kelly Mettler, had served since 1994. The employees were fired, not for job performance issues, but for dubious “irreconcilable differences” with Stainbrook and DeGidio. If the Secretary of State’s office does not increase its oversight and guarantee the BOE can run an efficient and honest election, the resulting lack of confidence and potential legal issues will rest squarely on its shoulders. No one expects better behavior from Stainbrook. Everyone should demand a better effort from Husted. If the chaos is allowed to continue, the only vote that will be believed is a resounding vote of no confidence in the process. O Thomas F.

Foundation says athletic violations will not dampen its efforts, Page A8 By Zach Davis
Toledo Free Press Staff Writer
The Wildcats and Cougars may soon prowl in a brand-new jungle. The Sylvania Schools Athletic Foundation is planning a $6.5 million renovation for the athletic facilities of five Sylvania schools. The foundation’s list includes Northview and Southview High Schools and Arbor Hills, McCord and Timberstone junior high schools. The Foundation plans to raise $4.5 million in private funds to finish the renovations and is seeking an additional $2 million to establish an endowment fund for Sylvania’s athletic and extracurricular activities. The tentative timetable is to begin building in 2012 and complete the facilities in the winter of 2013. “We have a tremendous group of individuals including community leaders, parents and business professionals that are committed to getting this done,” Superintendent Brad Rieger said. “They buy into the vision that we really are building the next generation of champions. Facilities are really just a platform to let kids shine in different ways. These are challenging times, but we are a committed group and we are ready to get it done.” John Ross, foundation board chairman, said people in Sylvania know how important education is. “They know how important it is to support schools and support kids. We are talking about a multigenerational

impact for our community. “This project is about kids. There are over 8,000 kids in Sylvania schools and to know that they will have an opportunity to compete, play and participate in great schools with great athletic facilities is really exciting.”
What does $6.5 million buy?
Northview will add new field turf
(for football and soccer), bleachers (for baseball, football and soccer) and field lights (for baseball and football). The school will also add an eight-lane, all-weather track-and-field events area, a ticket booth and a facility for concessions and restrooms. Southview will add new field turf, bleachers, home stands and a press box for the football field, as well as
portable stands for the band and a facility for concessions and restrooms. Southview also will add new bleachers for baseball and softball and additional soccer seating. Northview and Southview will also add 32-foot scoreboards, which include a 10-foot-by-17-foot video screen and five different spaces to sell advertisements.
Arbor Hills and McCord will have their football fields upgraded to include irrigation and drainage as well as lights, an electronic scoreboard, a press box and an eight-lane track. Timberstone will receive mounding and screening for wind protection and fencing. n SYLVANIA CONTINUES ON A6
n SYLVANIA CONTINUED FROM A5
Among the major problems with the schools’ current arrangement is Northview having to share its football field with Southview. Although Southview has a field, it is limited to freshman and junior varsity play due to a small bleacher area. “Right now the issue is we have both of our varsity football teams playing at one field,” Rieger said. “There are significant scheduling and logistical issues. There are obviously issues with Northview wanting their own place and Southview wanting their own place but it’s even beyond that. We want separate facilities so we can expand the utilization into different activities, sports and community organizations.” The foundation plans to allow such organizations as Lourdes College, Sylvania Recreation and the Catholic Youth Organization youth tournament to use the facilities. Foundation Executive Director Jeanette Hrovatich said they hope to draw a national tournament to their facilities in the future.

Reaching private donors
To fund the $6.5 million project, the foundation is turning to private donors. Although the process is described as being at “the ground level,” the foundation’s goal is to raise $1 million during September. Hrovatich said the foundation is in discussions with about 40 donors. “When you look across the country, I see no one else attempting to do what we are doing in a district with two public high schools to raise private money to help keep these extracurriculars available for kids,” Ross said. “This is cuttingedge. Things are going to change in how schools are financed. The time to involve the private sector into this has come. It is going to be very successful and a new way to look at things.” The idea for turning to private donors came in 2005 when the board for

to classrooms. “I got a sense, along with the community, that for us to accomplish some things with our outdoor facilities we needed to go a different way with a different approach,” Rieger said. “That’s when this idea of raising money in a private fashion, for seeking corporate and individual donors to fund the enhancements, really germinated.” To help raise $6.5 million, the
Sylvania Schools began to look at rebuilding some of its facilities. At that time, it determined that taxpayers were growing weary of increased taxes and decided that private funding would be the best course of action. It created the Sylvania Schools Athletic Foundation in November 2005 to begin the process of raising private funds for athletics, hoping it would transition to continual tax levy support that would go directly

This will be great for the community.” The foundation has formed a women’s initiative group, “Girls with Goals” (GWG), which is attempting to raise money for the facilities.

Foundation: Violations will not deter effort By Zach Davis
Toledo Free Press Staff Writer
The Sylvania Schools Athletic Foundation’s renewal project faced a scare when it learned Aug. 5 that Northview and Southview had received sanctions from the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) on its football programs because of recruiting violations. With the sanctions occurring while they were in conversations with donors, there was some worry that they may have negatively impacted some donors’ decisions about giving. “It was a concern because sometimes people don’t understand the nature of everything that happens in a district or a community but we have gotten a really great response,” said Foundation
Executive Director Jeanette Hrovatich said. “We continue to meet with people this week and next week. We are excited by the opportunity to continue to work on this project.” Among the violations, Northview Athletic Director Chris Irwin was found to have violated an OHSAA bylaw when he gave new head coach Marek Moldawsky Jr. a list of eighth grade students from the three Sylvania junior high schools so he could contact them and try to keep them at Northview. The OHSAA reprimanded Irwin. At Southview, head coach Jim Mayzes was found to have violated an OHSAA bylaw when he inquired where a student would go to high school while at McCord Junior High School. Southview was placed on a two-year probation and
Anytime something negative or bad happens you can use that opportunity to grow from it and that’s what we are going to do.”
— Superintendent Brad Rieger was fined $500. “It did involve recruiting but it was within the context of Sylvania,” Superintendent Brad Rieger said. “We weren’t recruiting kids from Whitmer, Springfield or Bedford. It stems from
our coaches that are very passionate about their programs and want kids to experience the great things that are happening at their programs. I want that in coaches, but they might have been a bit overzealous with how they acted. “It was inappropriate. We will learn from it and get some training in place to make sure the expectations are spelled out clearly for everyone.” Despite the violations, the foundation sees the upcoming renewal project as a good way to bounce back and make up for the athletic department’s mistakes. “Anytime something negative or bad happens you can use that opportunity to grow from it and that’s what we are going to do,” Rieger said. “This new project is about creating projects for kids and building champions.” O

Folic Acid for Expectant Moms To help ensure that you have a healthy baby, it’s important to take the right vitamins before and during pregnancy. One of the most important supplements is folic acid. Folic acid, also known as vitamin b9, can be found in prenatal and multivitamins. It’s in green, leafy vegetables like spinach, turnips and asparagus. Also, many pastas, egg yolks and cereals may be fortified with folic acid. Folic acid is essential to your unborn baby’s health and development. It helps prevent birth defects like neural tube defects (NTD), such as spina bifida. Fortunately, taking folic acid before and during your pregnancy is one of your baby’s best defenses against these birth defects. Plus, it’s easy for you to take.
Beyond pregnancy, folic acid may also help prevent stroke, cancer and cardiovascular disease in women. For this reason, folic acid is beneficial for women from child-bearing age through menopause.

Additionally, preference will be given to a student who is majoring in early childhood education, information systems, computer programming and computer systems. The initial contribution to the new Ryan, Mary and Hayden Walters Scholarship Endowment Fund came from the inaugural Walters Family 5K Run to honor the seven victims of the tornado.

CITY OF TOLEDO
City Council proposal restricts panhandling By Zach Davis
Toledo Free Press Staff Writer email@example.com
Toledo City Council is considering an ordinance to put more restrictions on panhandling. The proposal, submitted by District 2 Councilman D. Michael Collins, is modeled after a recent one passed in Cincinnati. It restricts panhandling at COLLINS areas such as bus stops, crosswalks and public and commercial properties. “What we have done here is we have redefined solicitation,” Director of Law Adam Loukx said. “I think it may be impossible to come up with something perfect for every situation but this legislation I believe is a vast improvement over the more archaic legislation in the books.
“This ordinance is trying to find a line where the city can protect the mobility of travelers and make sure the people walking on sidewalks are not being intimidated or unreasonably annoyed.” The ordinance states that all attempts to request goods or money from a stranger is prohibited. However, it allows those who remain “passively standing or sitting with a sign” as long as they do not verbally initiate any requests. It also places time restrictions on panhandling, allowing it from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., except while daylight savings time is in effect, when it will be from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. There are also restrictions on soliciting inside any public transportation, toward any operator of a motor vehicle or person exiting a motor vehicle and within 20 feet of an ATM or entrance to a bank. “The previous law was just a general prohibition, the law has matured over the past several decades,” Loukx said. “Hopefully, this improvement
will meet the needs of the citizens and at the same time recognize that people do have a constitutional right to solicit as long as it doesn’t violate the time, place and manner restrictions that we have.” The ordinance also hopes to give police officers a clearer definition of the restrictions so that they can more adequately enforce the law. “Police officers can engage an individual and make a determination,” Collins said. “What this does in my opinion is bring a balance with the spirit of the law and intent of the law and allows those who are responsible for the enforcement to make those critical decisions of, ‘is this a criminal issue or an issue that requires the social agencies’ intervention?’”
Toledo Deputy Police Chief George Taylor said that while enforcement may increase for the first few weeks if the ordinance is passed, it would likely return to the level it is now. Violators would receive a minor misdemeanor on their first offense, a fourth-degree misdemeanor on their second offense and a third-degree misdemeanor on subsequent offenses. “Certainly, this law is not going to be an antidote for poverty in the City of Toledo,” Collins said. “The law as I see it is a tool that can be used. This provides us a tool as a city and our police officers to be able to step up and take direct action.” Bill Thomas, the executive director of the Downtown Improve-
ment District, questioned whether the new changes would do more harm than good. His agency’s Ambassador Program already speaks to panhandlers about what they can do to help and social programs in which they can become involved. “I have some mixed emotions on this,” Thomas said. “It’s going to be a bit more difficult to figure out what is within the allowable. Is it 19.5 feet or is it 20.5 feet? Is it within the guidelines of being good solicitation? It’s going to be a little more difficult for us.” The ordinance will be included in the City Council Agenda Review on Aug. 16 and will be voted on by Council Aug. 30. O

A question of mayoral intent
have a question. What is going on with that huge pothole on Heatherdowns Boulevard? Who is in charge of fixing it? Is it even on the list to be repaired? I have another question. When is that new Table Forty4 restaurant in Maumee opening? Will it take away from the restaurant on Monroe Street? I have a third question. I just lost my job. How do I start applying for unemployment? Can I get mortgage assistance? So who can answer these questions? That’s easy. As Toledo Free Press community ombudsman, this column is my attempt at being your 411, your mailbag, your information center if you will. Ask me a question, I will consider researching it, getting an answer and possibly publishing it. So let’s get started. Here is a question I often hear. Follow this model when you send me a question. Q: Does Mayor Mike Bell plan to run for re-election? It seems like he might Brandi have a good chance to win, but he has always said he isn’t worried about reelection, even during his 2009 campaign. Resident on Dorr Street A: Hi Resident on Dorr Street, Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller and I met with the mayor a few weeks ago and asked him that very same question. While he would not confirm his bid for re-election quite yet, he did smile a lot and eventually said, “probably.” The election is still two years away. Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez has been the subject of much specu-
lation, but I haven’t heard of anyone else who is seriously interested. I did run into former mayoral candidate Keith Wilkowski in the hallway when I went to talk to the mayor. On Aug. 3, I called Wilkowski and left him a message about possibly running again. We played phone tag. I then sent him an email and got this response: “I am having a wonderful time doing some really interesting legal work at my law firm, Marshall & Melhorn and enjoying my grandchildren in the off time. Running for office is the furthest thing from my mind.” Do you have BARHITE a question? A dilemma? A dying-toknow piece of information? Send it to your community ombudsman.

Seven of the 10 companies selected to receive a total of $1.1 million in Energizing Careers Program grants for work force training from the Ohio Department of Development (DOD) are located in Northwest Ohio. Owens Community College worked with six of the seven local companies to write and submit applications for those grants, which are funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and U.S. Department of Labor. A total of $989,571 was awarded to those companies to train 290 workers in this region. The program reimburses companies for the cost of training up to $6,000 for each fulltime employee. “The future of our economy is advanced energy manufacturing and our workforce must keep up with the demands of the marketplace. These training dollars will benefit incumbent workers as well as new employees to be hired,” Christiane Schmenk, director of the Ohio DOD, stated in a news release. The Workforce and Talent Division of the DOD administers the Energizing Careers Program in Ohio to assist companies that are manufacturing components for the solar, wind and biomass industries. Owens will work with the six
companies to develop and provide customized work force training programs for new and existing employees funded by the grants. “Owens is pleased to collaborate with Northwest Ohio business and industry to provide leading-edge training, enabling our region to remain competitive in today’s ever-changing global economy. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved,” said Michael Bankey, vice president of Workforce and Community Services at Owens. The seven local companies awarded grants are Applied Energy Technologies and Pro-Pak Industries of Maumee, TecnoSunSolar of Toledo, ARGO-HYTOS and Marathon Special Products of Bowling Green, POET Biorefining of Fostoria, and AP Alternatives of Ridgeville Corners in Henry County. Applied Energy Technologies (AET) received an $180,000 grant to train 35 new employees for the design, engineering and manufacturing of mounting solutions for solar installations. AET is making racks for solar panels in its new 43,100 square-foot manufacturing and warehouse facility opened in Maumee in April. Craig Winn, president of AET, said the company customized hand and machine assemblies for developers and installers of solar panels. It has provided mounting solutions to 400 customers nationally from the East Coast to the U.S. Navy in Hawaii. Winn said the company would not

have known about the training grants if Bankey had not reached out to the company about the program. Rex Reimer, director of operations at AET, said AET will conduct ergonomic training to provide an optimum workplace for all employees and technical training on automated systems for production workers over the next 12 months. AP Alternatives received a $210,000 grant to train 20 new and 15 current employees to modify products, purchased from Alex Products, used to assemble and install solar mounting systems. Both AP Alternatives and Alex Products are owned and operated by the David Von Deylen family. Argo-Hytus is the recipient of a $100,200 grant to train two new and 17 current employees in the design and production of customized manifolds, valve assemblies and power packs for filtration and hydraulic tank solutions for the wind energy market. Marathon Special Products received a $250,600 grant for training 120 current employees for the design and production of electrical devices. The company is developing solar power integration components, wind power connections and wind circuit protection devices. POET Biorefining is the recipient of a $43,371 grant to train 43 current employees at its ethanol production facility, which consumes 22 million

bushels of locally grown corn to produce 68 million gallons of ethanol annually. POET is working on training programs with Terra Community College in Fremont. TecnoSunSolar received a grant for $49,400 to train one current employee and 12 new employees in the production of its patented dual axis tracking systems for solar installations. The tracking systems are designed to follow the movement of the sun and increase solar panel output by 20 to 40 percent. Greg Knudson, CEO of TecnoSunSolar USA, said Owens will develop four training courses for its employees to be conducted in the
next 12 months. Pro-Pak Industries received a $156,000 grant for training three new and 23 current employees on the design, manufacturing and assembly of packaging for First Solar and Willard & Kelsey, two of the largest manufacturers of solar panels in Northwest Ohio. ProPak is working with AET to provide packaging for shipment of its solar racks. Owens is already collaborating with First Solar Inc. and the Willard & Kelsey Solar Group, both of Perrysburg, and The Dow Chemical Company branch in Findlay on worker training from recent Energizing Careers Program grants totaling more than $1.8 million.

Warren Thomas Communications Presents
Use your home equity to pay for long-term care I n my business as a professional geriatric care manager, many seniors and their families come to me with questions about how to pay for longterm care. Most seniors want to stay in their own homes, and some may be able to if they can afford the care that they require now and in the future. For many seniors, the equity in their home is their largest single asset, yet it is unavailable unless they use a home equity loan. But a conventional loan doesn’t free up the eqDebra uity because the money has to be paid back with interest. A reverse mortgage is a way of tapping into home equity without creating monthly payments and without requiring the money to be paid back during a person’s lifetime. Instead of making payments, the cash flow is reversed and the senior receives payments from the bank. Thus the title “reverse mortgage.” Many seniors are finding they can use a reverse mortgage to pay off an existing conventional mortgage, to pay off debt, make home repairs, or for remodeling. For those seniors who are in need of long-term care and want to stay in their home, a reverse mortgage can generate the money needed to pay for in-home personal and medical care. They can also pay for needed medical equipment and handicap adaptation for their home. There are no income, asset or credit requirements. It is the easiest loan to qualify for. You must be at least 62, own and live in, as a primary residence, a home (1-4 family residence, condominium, co-op, permanent mo-
bile home, or manufactured home) to qualify for a reverse mortgage. A reverse mortgage is similar to a conventional mortgage. For example: O The bank does not own the home but owns a lien on the property just as with any other mortgage O You continue to hold title to the property as with any other mortgage O The bank has no recourse to demand payment from any family member if there is not enough equity to cover paying off the loan ROIDL O There is no penalty for paying off the mortgage early O The proceeds from a reverse mortgage are tax-free and can be used for any legal purpose you wish
O “The lender could take my house.” The homeowner retains full ownership. The reverse mortgage is just like any other mortgage; you own the title and the bank holds a lien. You can pay it off anytime you like. O “I can be thrown out of my own home.” Homeowners can stay in the home as long as they live, with no payment requirement. O “I could end up owing more than my house is worth.” The homeowner can never owe more than the value of the home at the time the loan is due. O “My heirs will be against it.” Experience demonstrates heirs are in favor of reverse mortgages. There are some things to be aware of when thinking of using a reverse mortgage. According to Walter Updegrave, a senior editor at Money magazine and author of “Investing for the
Financially Challenged,” closing costs and other fees can run into thousands of dollars. If the borrower remains in their home for many years after taking the reverse mortgage, and uses the money to stay independent by paying for caregivers, for example, then the costs may be worth the risk. If, however, the borrower dies or has to move to a more protected environment within a few years, the fees may not be worth it. (http://money.cnn.com/2004/03/30/pf/ expert/ask_expert/) The amount of reverse mortgage benefit for which you may qualify will depend on: O your age at the time you apply for the loan O the reverse mortgage program you choose O the value of your home O current interest rates O and for some products, where you live n ROIDL CONTINUES ON A17

AUGUST 14, 2011 n ROIDL CONTINUED FROM A16 As a general rule, the older you are and the greater your equity, the larger the reverse mortgage benefit will be (up to certain limits, in some cases). The reverse mortgage must pay off any outstanding liens against your property before you can withdraw additional funds. The loan is not due and payable until the borrower or borrowers no longer occupy the home as a principal residence (i.e. the borrower sells, moves out permanently or passes away). At that time, the balance of borrowed funds is due and payable, all additional equity in the property belongs to the owners or their beneficiaries. Other considerations regarding reverse mortgages are that interest rates and fees can vary widely among reverse mortgage lenders. Updegrave said, “It can be very difficult to compare the true costs of different loans from different lenders. The best way to do that is to compare each loan’s ‘TALC,’ or total annual loan cost.” This figure, which reverse mortgage lenders are required to disclose by federal truth-in-lending laws, takes all loan costs into account as well as
the timing on the payments you’re projected to receive.” (http://money.cnn.com/2004/03/30/ pf/expert/ask_expert/) The most popular reverse mortgages are the so-called HECM loans. HECM loans require that the applicant meet with a government approved counseling agency to be sure the applicant understands the reverse mortgage process. The Federal Trade Commission states: “Before applying for a HECM, you must meet with a counselor from an independent governmentapproved housing counseling agency. Some lenders offering proprietary reverse mortgages also require counseling. The counselor is required to explain the loan’s costs and financial implications, and possible alternatives to a HECM, like government and nonprofit programs or a single-purpose or proprietary reverse mortgage. The counselor also should be able to help you compare the costs of different types of reverse mortgages and tell you how different payment options, fees, and other costs affect the total cost of the loan over time. Most counseling agencies charge about $125 for their
services. The fee can be paid from the loan proceeds, but you cannot be turned away if you can’t afford the fee.” A reverse mortgage specialist in your area can answer your questions, calculate the amount of loan you can receive and suggest the best type of loan for your needs. The National Care Planning Council (http://longtermcarelink.net/a7reversemortgage. htm) has a list of reverse mortgage specialists in your area. Also, the AARP website has a section on reverse mortgages at http://www.aarp.org/ money/credit-loans-debt/reverse_ mortgages/.

Organizers hope a free health screening in Toledo will help detect a deadly but preventable vascular condition in at-risk area residents. Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are the third leading cause of sudden death in men older than 60, but a simple ultrasound screening of the abdomen can detect it before it’s too late. The screenings, which are noninvasive and take about 10 minutes, will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Kmart pharmacy, 627 E. Man-
A free ultrasound Aug. 20 will screen for abdominal aortic aneurysms in at-risk area residents age 60 and older.
hattan Blvd. Space is limited. Advance registration is required by calling (866) 371-3592. The screenings are sponsored by Medtronic and supported by Find the AAAnswers, a national public education campaign designed to raise awareness of abdominal aortic aneurysms. The aneurysms are blood-filled bulges or balloonings of the abdominal aorta, the artery that carries blood away from the heart to the lower part of the body. What makes them deadly is there

A vast majority of the time they are caught when they rupture or when a test is done for another reason.” n SCREENING CONTINUES ON A19

Risks for AAA increase in individuals who are age 60 and older, have a history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a family history of the disease. More than 1 million Americans are estimated to be living with an undiagnosed abdominal aortic aneurysm, Kasper said. “It runs very commonly in families, especially in males; males have a much higher incidence than females and it’s much more common if you have a first-degree relative who has it,” Kasper said. “It’s also something that develops over time.” When detected early, nearly all cases can be managed and successfully treated, Kasper said. “If you catch it before it ruptures, most of the time it doesn’t need operated on,” Kasper said. “Doctors can watch it over time and 99 percent of patients do great with that and survive with a happy life. That’s the
whole point of the Find the AAAnswers program — making people aware so it’s at least on their radar screen and so we can find some of these before they are fatal.” Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann serves as the national ambassador for the Find the AAAnswers campaign. Theismann’s father survived AAA after an ultrasound screening found an aneurysm before it burst. “Because of my family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm, I understand the risks associated with this disease and encourage everyone who may be at risk — or who has loved ones who are — to make an appointment for the free screening taking place in Toledo on Aug. 20,” Theismann said in a AAA news release. “It’s 10 minutes out of your day, it’s free and it could save your life.” For more information, visit www.

Conversation approaches for caregivers By Chris Cremean Special to Toledo Free Press email@example.com
Caregivers need all the help they can get. One of the most difficult barriers to helping loved ones when they need more assistance is knowing the best approach to addressing the issues that need to be addressed. It all comes down to building, or in some cases, rebuilding relationships with those loved ones. The first step to being an effective caregiver is good communications. There is the direct approach: “You need to do this,” “You should make out a will or plan your funeral arrangements.” We sometimes feel so strongly about what the person needs, we will force our concerns on the other person. The problem with this approach is that most people don’t want people telling them what to do. They will be more apt to tune

you out and not pursue the thing you are trying to get them to do. A more effective approach is the indirect one. Make suggestions that the person look into the subject or point out experiences that others had with the area of concern and how it worked out (or didn’t) in their case. “Cousin Ned sure was glad that Aunt Mable made out that advanced directive in deciding how to handle Uncle Fred’s stroke.” This will place the idea in their heads and sometimes they will bring it up themselves at a time when they are ready to deal with it. It also allows thm to be in charge of their own decisions. O Chris Cremean, LSW is a resource specialist for caregivers.

Joe Sharp, CEO of The Thread Marketing Group, always wanted to be a pilot. His father was a pilot. His son was a pilot. Sharp’s office is full of airplanes, dominated by large prints of World War II dogfights signed by the aces. The same nod to personality characterizes the spaces of many of Thread’s team members. System administrator Wanda Stuart has a bullwhip hanging in her office, given to her by a client who thought she was a tough boss — she has never actually used it, as it’s easier for her to press a button and disconnect a network card if anyone gets unruly. The centerpiece of creative director Jacqueline Barchick’s wall is a vivid multicolored poster collage of graphics— “visual candy” to inspire ideas and conversation. Production coordinator Nikki Hale’s desk is surrounded by calendar cutouts of ’50s-style couples with captions like, “I feel a sin coming on” and “She could hardly wait to regret this.” And while Sharp’s office is pristine and orderly, its glass and leather softly lit by cool blue lamps, his sister Judy McFarland’s space is a charming disaster. McFarland has a fireplace in the middle of her bright office — she’s always cold, even in summer — a chair made from a large rubber exercise ball at her desk and whirlwind stacks of papers scattered all over the room. A bauble by her desk reads “Chaos: Where brilliant dreams are born.” On second glance, the décor seems to be primarily dogs. Even the ringtone on her phone is a dog barking, which makes it especially startling when it goes off in meetings. McFarland, the company’s president, is the right brain to Sharp’s left. When she graduated from Bowling Green State University, she assumed her big brother would hire her to work in his hip graphics company. But he turned her down, and she got a great job in corporate marketing. Ten years later, Sharp, whose background was in Information Tech-

nology, needed to re-brand Image Source as having both technical proficiency in building websites and the marketing strategies of an ad agency. He called his little sister and asked her to join his team. “I like to think that I’m his savior,” McFarland said.
Growth through combination
The marriage of technology and marketing in a relaxed, creative and familial team atmosphere is Thread’s crux. The company has seen annual growth in sales during the past five years, capped by a nearly 20 percent increase in 2010. It has also added five employees in the past 14 months in programming, account and creative services.
Thread has accomplished this growth with a unique combination of business strategy, technical expertise and creative graphics tailored — design, build, host and maintain websites from the company’s high-powered data centers. “They really get it. I know that they have a track record, a long one, but I find that overall as an agency they’re very hip, they’re really with it,” said Susan Maxwell, director of marketing communications at Uckele Health and Nutrition. “However, they do apply the marketing fundamentals. You can feel that foundation.” The company has the perfect subcontracting situation — two sister companies under Thread Corpora-

VIS Alliance is a “logistics/communications business providing customer service support from project management to on-site staffing and administrative services,” according to Thread’s website, and eMerge specializes in electronic content management. “They’ve taken the time to really understand what my business is and ask good questions. They’ve done some good research,” said Ryan Hacker, president of TruePoint Laser Scanning. “They’ve been able to work with me a lot after-hours and on weekends and stuff like that. I think that’s great that they understand small business and what needs to be done.” Thread also helps manage com-

panies’ social media presence. Kevin Cesarz is Thread’s director of social media. If consumers complain about a company’s products on sites like Facebook and Twitter, Cesarz said, that places a data point in the minds of all their friends or followers. The companies need a chance to respond and interact with all the real-time processing and critiquing, so Cesarz monitors social media for posts — positive, neutral or negative — about Thread’s clients. But although social media offers a significant relational opportunity for companies, Cesarz, who writes a social media column for Toledo Free Press, stressed it is not a storefront. n THREAD CONTINUES ON A21

The key to creativity is being bold, telling bad jokes and drinking wine in the middle of the day, McFarland and designer Rebecca Booth said. It keeps the constantly hectic process — “Our normal is rush,” McFarland said — light, stress-free and respectful. “We like to have fun,” McFarland said. “We play practical jokes a lot on each other.” “Probably too much,” Sharp said. That’s not to say creating the finished product is easy. “It’s going to be very challenging and at times it’s going to be hard, but it should also be fun,” Sharp said. Booth, Barchick and Jon Wittes are the design team at the center of the artistic process. Barchick said their section of the hall has an energy unique even from the rest of the office. Especially after lunch, when the three get “soda buzzed,” each play a different radio station and yell ideas at each other through their open doors.

Barchick has an article titled “How to wear orange” taped to her wall. Thread recently did some marketing of its own, branding itself as “Team Orange,” a color Barchick said connotes quirkiness and energy. Even the name “Thread” is intended to create a visual of many strands of information, ideas and designs coming together to create a unified whole — a consolidated strategy for the client. “It’s a two-way street,” McFarland said. She and Sharp realize that for their team to succeed, they must excel as bosses. People farther down the street matter, too. McFarland said anyone may leave work early at Thread to serve the community. She is the board president of the Toledo Humane Society. Sharp is active in the Rotary Club of Toledo. Executive vice president Holly Goldstein gives her time to Toledo Children’s Hospital and Chicks for Charity among other organizations. McFarland said she has even discovered the way to resolve any conflicts among Thread’s leaders. “If something goes wrong,” she said, “I always have in my back pocket that I can just call Mom to tell on [Joe].” O

THE RETIREMENT GUYS
Why Washington loves the meltdown on Wall Street
ust a few weeks ago for millions of Americans, it seemed like the economy was slowly heading in the right direction. The stock market had shown a few good years of gains. It appeared unemployment was starting to drop and more people were finding jobs even though they were still hard to come by. Some even started to gobble up rock bottom vacation homes and others got back to enjoying retirement. Yet behind the scenes, trouble has been brewing. Like a fire growing in the walls of your home, the problem was spreading fast and many never heard the alarms. And that is just what our political leaders wanted. Our leaders have forgotten what their job really is. They have forgotten they work for us. They told us first it was the banks that were “too big to fail,” then they told us the same with the automotive companies as they handed out billions more of our money. They extended unemployment benefits, tore down and built new bridges, created universal health care for everyone and the list goes on and on. Then, on Aug. 1, the debt was maxed
out. In less than 10 years our national debt went from 59 percent of our Gross Domestic Product to now 98 percent, according to www.usdebtclock.org. Two months ago, many Americans did not know what the debt ceiling was and didn’t realize America has more than $14 trillion in debt. Instead of stopping the spending spree, Congress just raised the debt limit Mark with a promise to cut spending in the Nolan future. That in turn led Standard and Poor’s to downgrade the rating of the United States for the first time in our country’s history. To top it off, the man with the credit card and no backup plan, U.S. Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner, gets to keep his job. We say fire them all. The Republicans are happy because this meltdown gives them a reason to blame Obama and fight for more power in the 2012 election. They don’t care about
you or me, they just want more control. Obama is happy right now as well. The new economic meltdown will give him another opportunity to spread more of his progressive programs, telling Americans we can’t do it on our own; we need the government to step in and take care of us. The more the government “helps us” take care of ourselves, the more enslaved we all become CLAIR to the government and the more that BAKER can be taken away from us in the future. Don’t let them control you and your family’s future. Don’t panic and give in to your emotions. Look, we’ve screwed up many times in my life, and you probably have, too. Don’t let this moment in time be one of those points you look back at and feel you made a mistake. Use past failures to give you the wisdom not to panic. Instead remain calm and make educated
and calculated decisions. Look at this moment as an opportunity, an opportunity for you and your family to truly gain personal financial freedom. Take this time to shore up your family’s personal finances. Hopefully, you already had an exit plan in place before the market caught on fire and you have run a few fire safety drills. If so, don’t make changes unless the objectives have changed. Let the plan run its course. If no safety nets were in place, be careful to not sell in a down market. Depending upon current or future income needs review your plan for cash flow. Keep adequate cash reserves to cover current needs and look for ways to increase yields. Remember, buy low and sell high. Stay away from debt, don’t take any “free” handouts and avoid the entitlement mentality. Throughout the years, we have heard a lot of people say they hope their last check bounces and plan to spend it all. Be careful, this can be very dangerous. Avoid debt and remember that your savings can go fast. You could live longer
than expected and run out of money. Plus, if we allow the government to continue to trick us into an entitlement mentality, one day we are going to have to answer to our children and grandchildren and tell them whether it was worth giving up their freedom just to satisfy our immediate needs and wants. Look at what our grandparents did for us to preserve the freedoms we have today. We the people, must take back control of our government, yet until we do, take control of your personal financial situation. You can do it, you deserve victory.

Chrysler seeks tax relief to create Toledo jobs
By Duane Ramsey
TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER email@example.com
The anticipated expansion of the Toledo Assembly Complex (TAC) by the Chrysler Group LLC moved closer to reality when the City of Toledo’s proposal for tax abatements for the projects were submitted to Toledo Public Schools (TPS) and Washington Local Schools districts. The potential expansion of the TAC could result in an investment of $357 million for machinery and equipment. The retention of 902 existing jobs and creation of 1,105 new jobs at the TAC would generate an estimated payroll of $36 million annually, according to the city’s proposals to the school districts. About 60 percent of the potential TAC expansion would be within the TPS district and other 40 percent within the Washington Schools District, according to those proposals. The finance committee for TPS met Aug. 11 to review the potential investment and tax abatement request. City officials attended the meeting to provide input. Reportedly, TPS Board of Educa-
tion President Bob Vasquez said TPS would support any proposed expansion by Chrysler in Toledo. The board then went into executive session. TPS officials were not available for comment about the proposed expansion or tax abatements at press time. Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed in January that the company was considering a possible investment in the TAC. As part of the process, Chrysler Group is working with state and local governments to secure incentives that would support the business’s case for such an investment, according to a statement released by the Chrysler Group on Aug. 11. “Any decision to invest in the Toledo facility would be contingent on final approval of state and local incentives and final acceptance of all agreements by the company,” the statement said. UAW Local 12 President Bruce Baumhower said UAW members have made a business case to Chrysler for the expansion with their efforts to incorporate Fiat’s operating system, called World Class Manufacturing, for use in all Chrysler plants. “The expansion has been in discus-

sion stages for a year and a half now and we expect an announcement from Chrysler soon,” Baumhower said. Baumhower said in April that the TAC could be getting production of new vehicles from Chrysler. That anticipated expansion could add as many as 950 to 1,000 new jobs by the end of 2012, he said. Baumhower said Toledo North Plant is underutilized, running only one shift with the capacity to run two more shifts. He said it’s the UAW’s goal to expand to three shifts there. The TAC produces about 200,000 vehicles per year, but could build as many as 400,000, Baumhower said. Approximately 2,400 UAW workers are employed at the TAC. “Chrysler’s plan to expand operations here is music to our ears. As local government agencies continue to do their due diligence on the incentive package, I will continue to focus on helping Chrysler,” Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur said in a statement provided to Toledo Free Press. Toledo Mayor Mike Bell was out of the office Aug. 11 and unavailable for comment. The City of Toledo has not re-
ceived a formal commitment from Chrysler for any specific expansion or investment in Toledo, according to a statement provided by Jen Sorgenfrei, public information officer for the mayor’s office. The city submitted a proposal for incentives and benefits relative to possible expansion of the Toledo North Plant to Chrysler on April 20. That proposal was based on a confidential “2013 Product Feasibility Study” Chrysler provided the city as a guide. The total amount of incentives provided by the City of Toledo could be in the area of $15 million to $16 million, according to the proposal. The city’s proposal includes the municipal job creation tax credits program, offering the maximum allowable credit of 40 percent of new payroll taxes withheld. The credit would be given for the maximum allowable term of 10 years for a potential total of $2.9 million. The proposal also included a community reinvestment area real property improvement tax abatement to be negotiated with TPS and Washington Local. The total amount for improvements contemplated is estimated at $9.5 million in 15 years.

The city would enter into an agreement with Chrysler to grant it a 30 percent credit on additional withholding income taxes paid to the city by Chrysler employees resulting from the expansion during a 10-year period. The proposal also offered Chrysler a reduction and or freeze of water and sewer rates. The Toledo North Plant currently pays the lowest water rate in the city, according to that proposal. The city offered to work with Chrysler on expediting an Ohio EPA Air Permit through the Division of Environmental Services. That division has expended about 100 labor hours at an estimated cost of $3,500 and expects to expend many more hours on it, according to the city. The city would work with Chrysler to make infrastructure improvements on and around the TAC property to accommodate the potential expansion. “We are excited about the potential for further investment at the Toledo Jeep Assembly Complex. The prospective expansion is a positive sign that our local economy is starting to move in the right direction,” Sorgenfrei stated in an email to Toledo Free Press. O

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAR
Stevie Nicks to rock a little at Huntington Center By Vicki L. Kroll
Toledo Free Press Star Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Stevie Nicks has dreams she likes to sell. Her crystal visions of magic, eternal love and enchanting characters beckon. It’s those poetic fairy tales shrouded in mist set to music — and that voice. As the shawl-wearing rock star twirls through the mystical seasons of her life, fans still cry out for “Rhiannon.” And “Edge of Seventeen,” “Dreams,” “Landslide” and “Gold Dust Woman.” She’s one of the few artists with a successful solo career while in a band. With Fleetwood Mac, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and received the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 2003. The group has sold 48.5 million discs, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, and Nicks solo has tallied 10.5 million. “In Your Dreams,” her seventh solo record, debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 in May, and the music is hauntingly familiar. Dave Stewart, formerly of Eurythmics, co-produced the disc and co-wrote seven songs. “When you’ve been part of a duo like Dave and I have, the spirit of Annie Lennox and Lindsey Buckingham float with you,” Nicks said during a teleconference with four newspapers, including Toledo Free Press Star. She talked about what it was like during the nine months when Stewart was at her house working on the record. “The fireplace is on, and all the
moons and stars are on the ceiling, and it’s all totally this magic living room that I live in, and he just starts playing his guitar and he’s like, ‘Well, come on, let’s go ahead.’ And I’m like a deer in the headlights: Oh my God! Does he expect me to sit here and write a song with him? With him in the room? So I did, I just started kind of reciting my words in a sing-songy way, and that song in 15 minutes became the third to the last song on the record, ‘You May Be the One.’ ” Nicks recalled how they talked about poetry — and resurrected a gem. “I said I wrote a song once that was to an Edgar Allan Poe poem named ‘Annabel Lee.’ And he said, ‘Can we hear it?’ And I said, ‘Sure,’ and I went and got the demo out of the vault and played it for he and [co-producer] Glen Ballard and they loved it. They loved the fact that I had written it when I was 17, and they loved the fact that I didn’t even make a demo of it until 1996, so it lived in my head from 1965 until 1996.” The songwriter has a few thoughts about casting musical spells. “You just need to be a good storyteller,” she said. “The truth speaks volumes. So that’s what I always tried to do was be totally truthful, and none of my songs are made-up stories, they’re all real, they all came out of my journals, they all came out of my prose writing, which someday I’ll put into a book you guys all will get to read.” In the meantime, fans can see Nicks’ “In Your Dreams” tour, which
will stop at the Huntington Center on Aug. 19. Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert range from $49.50 to $125. TheDevers_Audi_TFP_811_Layout 63-year-old talked about prep- 1 3016 ping for the tour with a show at the
Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. “We weeded,” she said. “‘Stand Back,’ ‘Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘Gold Dust Woman,’ ‘Sorcerer,10:48 ’ ‘Landslide, ’ we did 8/11/11 AM Page 1 the musts, the must-haves, and then we did seven
new songs. And the reviews that came back from that show were like the old songs were great, but there was a special light around the new songs that we haven’t seen in a long time.” O

British singer John Waite to rock Tiffin By Vicki L. Kroll
Toledo Free Press Staff Writer email@example.com

For years, a friend kept telling John Waite to work with Matchbox Twenty guitarist Kyle Cook. “I had been burned working with people I didn’t know, and I just said I wasn’t going to do it anymore,” the songwriter said. Then Waite heard Cook’s solo material — and liked it. “We met cold in Nashville and hit it off immediately. We wrote something as we said hello, really,” Waite said. The two penned four of the songs on Waite’s disc, “Rough and Tumble,” which was released in February. “Working with Kyle Cook was pretty stimulating because he’s really fast on his feet, as I am,” said the former front man of The Babys and Bad English. “So it was like finding out you can run really fast again.” They collaborated on the single, “If You Ever Get Lonely.” Waite’s manager found the ballad, but the singer wasn’t sold on it as written. “The original was about some girl going to Hollywood and some guy more or less saying he’d wait until she got back,” Waite said. “I wouldn’t do that; I thought it was more interesting having sort of an emotional outburst and then trying to be cool.” The rocker “Rough and Tumble” opens the disc. “My manager was in the bathroom of the Russian Tea Room in New York City with Keith Richards, and Keith learned over and said, ‘All we’ve got to do is stick together.’ That was about the music business. And my manager told me that story and I was home thinking
about that,” Waite said. “And I thought how that thing about sticking together stuck in my mind and what life is, and how rough and tumble life is. And I thought that was a great title for what was happening in my life; I thought it was a cool title for the album.” With those piercing eyes and that scowl, the native of Lancaster, England, helped define “cool” in the early days of the video age. “The Babys got signed for making a video. We were the first band ever on the planet to do that; we haven’t gotten credit for it, but we were the first band ever to get signed for making a video,” Waite said. From 1977 until its breakup in 1980, The Babys had a string of hits: “Isn’t It Time,” “Every Time I Think of You,” “Head First,” “Back on My Feet Again,” “Midnight Rendezvous” and “Turn and Walk Away.” Waite’s solo career took off thanks to MTV. Some may remember him from the videos for “Change” when he played a reporter or for “Missing You” when he smashed that pay phone. “When MTV came along, the two things were just made for each other: me and them,” he said. “It kicked in with ‘Change’ in heavy rotation; it was huge because they only had so many videos they could play. I think they only had 12, so I’m on six or seven times a day. “By the time ‘Missing You’ got there a year and a half later, the song had as much punch as the video, which was great.” The songwriter recorded a new version of “Missing You” with Alison Krauss for 2007’s “Downtown: Journey of a Heart.”
“I approached her, and I got a ‘yes’ in about 24 hours,” Waite said. “I’ve always loved country, and it was nice
to meet a lot of the country greats through Alison and hang out backstage at the Ryman [Auditorium].”

What the heck is bacon jam?
In a small Texas kitchen and with 50 cents worth of sugar, Dee & Sarah McCraw created their famous and timeless taffy. Since 1908, McCraw’s taffy recipe has remained unchanged and is just as popular today as it was 100 years ago!
how do you eat it?
Mccraws taffy Assorted Flavors
Big bunch of really, really good bacon, which is rendered down...add a bunch of spices, onions, etc. and let it simmer for about 6 hours...give it a quick puree, blast chill it...and you have bacon jam... Put it on burger, serve it on crostini, perhaps on a grilled cheese, as a substitute for bacon on a BLT, or maybe the base for a vinaigrette.
