LIGHTING THE FUSE

Bell shakes things up olitics is a tough business; that’s not a new lesson for Tom Crothers, but the speed at which things can develop must stun even a veteran like him. On Aug. 16, Toledo Mayor Mike Bell stood with Crothers, then deputy mayor, Toledo City Councilman Rob Ludeman and other officials to announce a development at the site of the former Southwyck Mall. It was announced that MJW, Inc. was looking to transform the area into “somewhat of a sports village,” with each venue employing its own management. As reported by Toledo Free Press Staff Writer Caitlin McGlade, “The 58 acres might host indoor basketball, volleyball and hockey courts as well as outdoor stadiums and fields. The development fi rm is looking to fill the space with hotels and restaurants as well, to attract traveling teams not only to play, but to stay in Toledo for a few days.” The Bell administration was planning to ask Toledo City Council to approve a $50,000 loan for MJW, Inc. to conduct marketing, engineering and architectural research to develop Thomas F.POUNDS the concept. But as first brought to the public’s attention by WSPD morning host Fred LeFebvre, proposed lead developer CliffGaston apparently has a history of financial and legal issues that would have precluded him from partnering with the city had he been properly vetted. By Aug. 19, Bell had scuttled the deal. By Aug. 20, Crothers was relieved of his duties as deputy mayor and reassigned to the Department of Public Utilities, to, according to Bell’s office, “spearhead special projects, including the work to study a regional water system, implementation of the SAP computer system upgrade and focusing on customer service.” Paul Syring has been named acting deputy mayor of external relations. It is unfortunate that such a positive announcement went sour, and it is doubly unfortunate that a lack of simple vetting led to such a radical shuffling. But a lack of communication — Councilman D. Michael Collins had met with the same developers a year ago but let the matter lie because of the financial issues; he was not involved in the Aug. 16 announcement — led to an embarrassing situation for all involved. Bell’s administration started with a flurry of activity and development, with international travels and a deal, still unrealized in terms of construction, to sell the Marina District. Bell has shown two clear trends during his time as mayor. One is a tendency to trust the people he put in place, in terms of cooperation and development. Another is a willingness to make personnel changes when they need to be made, for the betterment of the city. Bell, to use a casino analogy, knows when to hold ’em and knows when to fold ’em. That’s called leadership, and while Bell would be the fi rst to say his administration has not been perfect, it is fair to say he has demonstrated a fluidity and willingness to adapt that had been missing from the mayor’s office. Chalk this one up as a lesson learned, and godspeed to Syring in his new role in moving our city forward. ✯

Bender’s final, written thoughts. “I leave this life and my profession with some regrets but none greater than how I have seen our society degrade and the perverse gain a BENDER strong foothold over the media. Of one particular concern to me is how certain members of religious beliefs have used religion as a provocation. Today, the norm is religious fervor, and it is the nitroglycerin of the 21st century. It affects our daily lives in so many corners: from judicial appointments to formulation of social norms. Politics and religion — it doesn’t get more volatile than that. “What I won’t miss is the indifference, the laziness, the monetary waste or the political good ole boy network of cover-ups. For sure I have learned that you can’t make excuses, alibis or explanations for this kind of behavior. Unfortunately, without a vigilant press these negatives would grow at a rapid pace and soon would be in complete control of the city. Without the watchful eye of the press

— only vague charges would surface and would quickly be ignored by those in power — as a matter of inconvenience rather than an issue to be resolved. “I have spent a lot of my adult life in the service of honest journalism and its ideals. I have never lived a day, in good times or bad, that I wasn’t grateful for the privilege. “As I leave the public eye — in pursuit for the ultimate personal challenge and investigative story — I am neither afraid nor concerned about the outcome. I have always looked to the challenge and found if it were easy, then there was no fun in the pursuit. I always believed that opportunity knocked — and when it did, I was never afraid to open the door — and release my hand from the doorknob — because I was always interested in the unknown and where it would lead me.” J.P. Bender has opened that final door and walked through it. If he is in Heaven, I hope they serve chicken wings. And if Heaven has a newspaper, I hope its editors are prepared for a hostile takeover. ✯

CITY OF TOLEDO

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

The sixth floor of Mercy St. Vincent’s Medical Center is a place for whispering. It is a place where silence is broken by beeping heart monitors and adults who muffle their tearful gasps by pressing their faces into their palms. It is a place where children softly babble over the hum of machinery, unaware that they are the ones, with even just one smile, who comfort the adults. The morning of Aug. 23, a groggy man pulls a little boy in a wagon from the Intensive Care Unit in the Children’s Hospital to the elevator doors. A woman walks down the hall holding a little girl’s hand, glancing down at the headwrap protecting the toddler’s head. This place, where paintings of animals and sea creatures meet intravenous therapy carts loaded with plastic bags and tubes and cords, is where Quen’Torria Snowden has spent much of her August. “She’s strong,” Snowden says, stroking Le’Ondra’s back as she sleeps in her hospital bed. Clad in pajamas printed with monkeys and peace signs, Le’Ondra is attached to an IV cart by a purple, plastic tube that leads into her arm. She awakes and Snowden scoops her into her arms and holds her. After rubbing her eyes and yawning, Le’Ondra scoots herself off her mother’s lap and off the bed. She tries to dance a little. Her IV tube gets tangled around her legs and caught in her leopard-print slippers. “Go,” she said, rocking back and

Snowden was not home. She got a call from her sister. Her two little girls had been shot. ■ PEACE CONTINUES ON A7

ARE YOU

EFFICIENT? ENERGY SPOTLIGHT #10: With fall quickly approaching, now is the time to think about how you can improve the performance of your business’ heating system and save on energy and costs. By establishing an upgrade strategy for your building’s boiler or furnace, significant energy savings can be achieved. Consider replacing an existing boiler with a new energy efficient unit that is sized properly to meet current loads or implement retrofit options to maximize efficiency. Proper sizing will save energy, reduce noise, lower first costs for equipment, optimize operation, which in turn will reduce maintenance and extend equipment lifetime. Furnaces can be replaced with a new, energy efficiency model and controls can be installed to set back temperatures during unoccupied hours. BetterBuildings Northwest Ohio can assist you in establishing a plan that will keep your business and occupants warm this winter. BBNWO offers attractive financing for energy efficiency projects and can provide you the support and resources you need to save your business energy and money. To learn how, call BBNWO today!

Three arrested The Toledo Police Department arrested three men for obstructing justice in connection with the shooting, but no murder charges have been filed, said Sgt. Joe Heffernan. The police are investigating further. Snowden said she knows the three arrested: Keshawn Jennings, 20, Antwaine Jones, 18, and James Moore, 20. They were each placed on a $500,000 bail and were indicted for the felony charge. She said she knows them from growing up in the neighborhood, and that they have never tried to hurt her. She assumed the shooting was gang-related. “The world is messed up and I don’t think it’s going to get better until the world comes to an end and wipes everybody away,” Snowden said. Since the shooting, Snowden hasn’t returned to her apartment. She hasn’t allowed any of her relatives to go either. She doesn’t know when she’ll be able to go back there, if at all, to retrieve her family’s belongings. It is difficult enough for her when Le’Ondra opens her mouth in her hospital room. “Ke Ke! Ke Ke!” Le’Ondra says, banging her hands on the plastic hospital bed rail. Ke Ke was her little sister’s nickname. Just a month ago, Le’Ondra proudly pretended to be a parent, carrying around Ke’Ondra and playing goofy games with her. Just a month ago, Le’Ondra was carelessly dancing to her favorite hip-hop songs on the radio and scribbling down doodles on paper. “I don’t think she knows how to talk about it, she just sees people wearing T-shirts with Ke Ke’s name on them and watches,” Snowden said, alluding to tribute T-shirts many of her family members have made. “She knows what’s going on though.” Snowden’s other daughter, De’Ondra is almost 5. She lives with a different family and was not at Moody Manor during the shooting. Snowden, 20, got pregnant with De’Ondra when she was 15. Le’Ondra came next and Ke’Ondra was her third. She and her boyfriend D’Andre Hooks have been together since they were about 14 years old. Snowden will move out of her

apartment but doesn’t know where she’ll go next. She hopes to leave Toledo altogether.

‘I feel it’ The bullets that killed Ke’Ondra and injured Le’Ondra are reverberating from Toledo to Detroit, bringing together rappers and activists to hit the streets with a positive message. Toledo-native rappers Jason Jensen and Sik Da Don Sikosa don’t know Ke’Ondra’s family. “I still don’t know them but I ain’t got to know them to feel it,” said Jensen, a father of three. “And I feel it, just like the whole community does.” Jensen, known as J360 by the hiphop community, and Detroit resident Sikosa composed a rap song about Ke’Ondra and Le’Ondra. They are pressing 500 to 1,000 compact discs to sell Aug. 31 to benefit the girls’ family. Snowden said the extra cash will be a much needed help, especially because she was recently laid off. “You can make excuses for people about why they got killed, like ‘Well they were doing this or doing that.’ It ain’t right to do, but you do. You can put an excuse on it if a drug addict gets killed,” Sikosa said. “But kids — you can’t make sense of that. You might have killed the first woman president or a doctor. And now Le’Ondra has to grow up hearing about all of this and knowing about this.” The pair will perform their song at HipHop4Peace, a benefit for the victims’ family at Inez Nash Park on Aug. 31. The benefit will run in conjunction with the Warren Sherman Festival and will feature other performances, food and treats for kids and speeches by community leaders. Sikosa and Jensen’s CDs will be for sale for $5 and attendees will be encouraged to do-

nate more to Le’Ondra and Ke’Ondra’s family for medical and funeral expenses. Jensen said he and Sikosa are spending at least $500 to bring all of this together. “The hope is to create a unified effort to show that hip-hop isn’t violence ... but violence has been associated with the music of the culture for quite some time,” said Albert “Mac” McCluster III, who proposed the event. “So this event and organization is a challenge to artists and performers to step up and say, ‘No more violence.’”

‘We’re just killing each other’ Sikosa moved to Michigan recently, but was touched by the news and wanted to help. “I just thought that people cared more, period, than to shoot at a house that has children in it,” Sikosa said. Titled “I Thought They Cared,” the song about Le’Ondra and Ke’Ondra laments senseless violence “getting out of hand” and asserts that the issue is “bigger than the neighborhood you trapped in.” “I live in Lincoln Park, Mich., now and I get online and watch the news and, man, Toledo news is rivaling Detroit and it’s unbelievable to me. I’ve had so many friends die there and get murdered and killed,” Sikosa said. “There’s got to be something to bring us together, so we can stop killing each other and if two little girls can’t stop it, then there ain’t no hope.” In 2010, there were 101 nonfatal shootings in Toledo. In 2011, there were 177. As of July 31, there were 106 shootings this year, said D. Michael Collins, city councilman and chair of the public safety, law and criminal justice committee. Jensen and Sikosa’s lyrics ask God how to understand man’s actions

and asks if there is a heaven because “there’s hell on these streets.” Both Sikosa and Jensen know firsthand about the “hell on the streets.” Jensen spent time in prison following a fight at a rap concert, which only made him want to give back to the community once he was freed. Sikosa’s mother died when he was a child and his aunt and uncle raised him, but he constantly had to defend himself if he went to a store in an opposing gang’s territory. He was beaten up often, a violence that forces a kid to attach him or herself to a gang, he said. “After you get whooped for crossing the street, you begin to be like, ‘Well hell, I might as well be bad,’” he said. “If everybody in this neighborhood is gangbanging, it’s a trap — you’ve got to be the ultra male.” He was entrenched in that lifestyle for years, until his son told him that his mother’s boyfriend had said Sikosa was a drug addict. That was it. Now, he said, he’s dedicated to using hip-hop to spread a positive message. “From the time you’re born, you can only be what you see … how can you dream to be a doctor or a lawyer when you don’t know none? When the only people you see with fancy cars and pretty girls are the people selling drugs?” Sikosa asked. Sikosa said the shooting outside Moody Manor exemplifies a tragedy in the black community, which Sikosa’s lyrics refer to as “finally an issue that ain’t white and ain’t black.” “The only time black people want to stick together is if it’s about something a white person did,” Sikosa said. “You know, my grandmother lived to be 97 years old — and after all the pain and struggle she saw and black people had — we died for each other before. And now we’re just killing each other.” ✯

UT, RGP, Port lead Toledo into solar’s future By John P. McCartney TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Lloyd A. Jacobs, the 16th president of the University of Toledo, embraces the university’s role as a community leader. Since his appointment, Jacobs said his role as a solar research, development and manufacturing advocate has not wavered. However, he said the U.S. is a much different country than when he took office in July 2006. “The economic recession and slow recovery have created trends in the solar industry that extend far beyond our region to all corners of the globe,” Jacobs said. “Northwest Ohio and the University of Toledo are certainly not immune to economic pressures, poor solar investments and flawed policy by the federal government and a discontinuation of many of the subsidies and research programs a young industry needs to build a foundation.” Despite those trends, Jacobs said UT’s commitment to photovoltaics (PV) is as strong as ever, and the university will continue to invest in technologies that “will be an increasingly important part of this nation’s and this planet’s energy portfolio. “It is UT’s commitment to solar despite the ebbs and fl ows of society that has placed us among the best institutions in the nation in the research and advancement of solar technology. We invested in solar when the price of gas was high in the late 1970s and early 1980s. We invested in solar when gas was cheap in the early 1990s. And we will continue that commitment through the rough period the solar industry is currently experiencing.”

Jacobs b said d that h bbecause the h past three years have been as tumultuous or higher education as they have been for all Americans, he made personal appearance decisions that he acknowledged some may have interpreted as a waning of support for solar energy research and development (R&D). “With a weak economy comes fewer resources,” he said. “It is certainly possible that I have delegated some of the media opportunities or solar-related meetings to faculty and administrators, but that speaks to the strength of UT’s solar team, not a lack of my or the institution’s commitment. UT continues to lead and be actively engaged in solar research, commercialization and publicprivate partnerships.”

Competing loyalties Jacobs refutes the suggestion that solar energy R&D has taken a back seat to the University of Toledo and Medical University of Ohio merger and UT’s resulting commitment to medical research. The assumption “presupposes that medical research and solar research are mutually exclusive in some way. No such zero-sum framework exists,” he said. “All federal grants across all federal agencies have become much harder to obtain as federal budget cuts have occurred since 2008.”

Since the h 2006 merger, Jacobs b said d he hears from some UT main campus employees that he is too focused on the Health Science Campus (HSC) and University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) matters. At the same time, Jacobs said he hears from HSC and UTMC employees that he’s left them behind and only focuses on the main campus. “I am always working to ensure this university rises as one entity and welcome any thoughts on ways I can improve that,” he said. “But it strikes me JACOBS as worth considering that the belief that I am ignoring one part of this campus over another may also speak to some degree to the interests of the person who holds that belief.” Jacobs also rejected the suggestion that UT’s commitment to solar has wavered in the past four years, pointing to, among other things, collaborations, plans for future activities, faculty and invited guests as evidence that the university’s support of alternative energy is unquestionable. Jacobs said UT played a large role

in attracting Isofoton North America to Northwest Ohio. He pointed to UT’s plans to host a booth for the fifth straight year at the upcoming World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. In addition, two new solar researchers began work at UT in 2011. Yanfa Yan joined UT-PIV staffaft er 12 years as a thin-fi lm solar cell scientist at the National Center for Photovoltaics. Nikolas Podraza, who received his doctorate from UT in 2008, returned to the university after three years at Penn State University’s Materials Research Institute. And in July 2010, Sultan Al Jaber, managing director and CEO of Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy initiative, visited UT, addressed UT-PVIC’s alternative energy researchers and received an honorary UT degree. “UT is committed to solar, and we will maximize our opportunities to advance the solar field whether the industry is in rough patches or is ascendant,” Jacobs said. “This technology will be a key part of our future energy portfolio and UT will continue to lead in its development.”

Academic leadership After a career at UT as a distinguished professor of public policy and economic development and the university’s 15th president from 2001-06, Dan M. Johnson returned to the university to serve as its director of global initiatives. Johnson has been a leading voice in the past decade in support of Toledo’s solar energy R&D and manufacturing. ■ SOLAR CONTINUES ON A9

Your lungs are a critical part of your respiratory system. Their main function is to deliver oxygen to your body and to remove carbon dioxide. Respiratory failure occurs when your lungs either fail to bring in enough oxygen, or fail to rid your body of carbon dioxide. Two common causes of respiratory failure are pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It’s also important to know that all the organs in our body work together; so respiratory failure can occur if any one of your organs stops working properly. The symptoms of this lifethreatening condition include labored breathing, change in mental status and fatigue. If you experience these symptoms, call 9-1-1. Respiratory failure may be prevented in certain instances. For example, if you smoke, quit. Quitting smoking is the single most important thing you can do to improve your overall health. Talk with your doctor about your risk of respiratory failure, or reducing your risk through home oxygen therapy and smoking cessation programs. Dr. Abdelwahed is accepting new patients at Toledo Pulmonary and Sleep Specialists on the campus of ProMedica Toledo Hospital. To schedule an appointment, please call 419-291-7555.

AUGUST 26, 2012 ■SOLAR CONTINUED FROM A8 Johnson said he believes Northwest Ohio’s leadership in photovoltaics at UT and the glass industry make this region the perfect location to develop the solar industry. “We had a head start on the industry in many ways,� Johnson said. “Toledo had the key players involved early on. The University of Toledo researchers — a very active and respected team of researcher — were early leaders of the solar industry in the region. “We also had the active participation of our local economic development organizations and professionals. They played their roles and, in my view, played them quite well despite major changes in their own organizations and leadership. Local government officials did what they could, largely adding their moral support and talking up Toledo’s budding solar industry. Add to that the significant infusions of venture capital, grants and loans. And, finally, there were the individual entrepre-

neurs and investors. All the ingredients were in place.� Johnson said that researchers, mayors, economic development organizations and investors alone “cannot make a budding industry successful. The key players are the industry leaders themselves. In the end, the responsibility for success is theirs. “They must know how to use the resources at hand. Gone are the days in this highly competitive market when the individual industry can do this alone. It reJOHNSON ally requires a team effort and a willingness to collaborate, form networks, share information and work together. We seem unable to take that last step in making things happen.

the nuances of global demand for solar panels, Johnson said. “But, in my view, we have stopped short of doing all we can to take full advantage of the existing resources,� he said. “This requires working together. Competing? Yes. But also collaborating, sharing information and asking for help. This takes a special kind of leadership. One scholar called it ‘the silent cry for leadership.’� Johnson used the Olympic Games, specifically the track and field events, as a timely example of how American solar companies need to approach their businesses. “The solar industry is sort of like the relay races where the first three runners of our team are leading the pack and the last runner drops the baton,� he said. “We can’t drop the baton and expect to win.�

“Second-generation photovoltaics is our expertise, but we need to collaborate with those who are doing first-generation and third-generation PV,� he said. “There needs to be a lot of collaboration among disciplines to solve problems for the future. That was the idea behind PVIC, to get groups of faculty members working together in research and development in photovoltaics.� Collins said UT-PVIC’s goals for the future include collaborating with existing companies, using the Wright Center’s reputation and body of work as a “gravitational field� to attract new companies, and conducting the research that generates the advances in thin film technology that ultimately lead to new companies.

‘How do we do that?’ For UT-PVIC faculty, Collins said the questions become “How do we do that?� and “How do we map our job responsibilities with what PVIC would like to do?� ■SOLAR CONTINUES ON A10

said he is just as concerned as his fellow researchers with recent press coverage that focuses on just one solar manufacturing company. He believes the coverage hurts all 50 companies with which UT-PVIC works. He suggested local broadcast and print media coverage of Willard & Kelsey creates collateral damage. It leads people to conclude that if one company is struggling like reports say Willard & Kelsey is, then all companies must be struggling in the same way, he said. “We know that the broad solar industry is struggling, but I think each of the PV companies in Northwest Ohio is poised to survive this,� Collins said. “But still, we all have to work together to make sure that happens. ‘Working together’ means the companies, along with [UT-PVIC] staff and faculty experts, must apply their expertise and work toward the same goal.� Collins said UT’s interdisciplinary team approach to problem-solving will serve UT-PVIC in its research and development over the next 10 years.

A10 ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS ■ SOLAR CONTINUED FROM A9 “And that’s actually easy to do because our No. 1 goal is teaching,” Collins said. “We would like to provide Ohio with people with expertise in photovoltaics. We want the people who come to Ohio for their education and the people who grew up in Ohio to actually stay in Ohio longterm and work in the photovoltaics industry here.” Collins said that although he has had some out-of-state Ph.D. graduates stay in Ohio, “That’s really what we have to be better at. I believe we’re good at it, but I also believe we need to be better in our training of students to work in Ohio industry and academia to keep Ohio strong.” In addition to increased manpower, Collins said researchers must continue to conduct advanced research to develop technologies that can be patented or used to establish companies like Xunlight and Xunlight 26. “In the area of new technology, Mike Heben and Randy Ellingson (UT-PVIC faculty) are really good at integrating nanotechnology concepts into what will become third-generation photovoltaics, enhancing what existing second-generation companies like First Solar do,” Collins said. He said research can also be focused on problem-solving for companies, like developing online monitoring equipment that can be added to a production line. Collins likened his team’s current research to a grocery store bar-code scanner that identifies a product passed over an optical scanner. “The same type of thing can be done on productions lines,” Collins said. “Before you end up actually making a module, [the production line scanner] allows you to predict whether the material is any good and whether you should shut down the line when you’re having problems. It’s a way of improving yield.” Collins said UT-PVIC is “well along that path” of providing manpower, developing problem-solving technologies and generating new technologies for startups. A promising new area of research is in advanced materials, Collins said, and Yan, a recent addition to the faculty, is exploring “all types of materials technology, not just the conventional ones that thin-film people currently use. “He has some of the really advanced, novel ideas in the field. Since he’s an expert in thin-film, secondgeneration photovoltaics, his real goal is to put a good semiconductor on a bad substrate.”

Randy J. Ellingson As an advocate for research that will transition today’s PV technology to “even more ideal photovoltaics ma-

terials and technologies,” Ellingson is convinced that if researchers can advance the knowledge and technology to the right level, solar manufacturing companies “will jump on that” to improve their production line processes. “My sense is that a company like First Solar is focusing on understanding its own material and its own technology, and that it’s not able to spend the kind of resources it would like to on other technologies,” Ellingson said. “Other technologies are up to other companies, or universities, or national lab researchers, and there has been a huge growth in interest in photovoltaics in university research programs.” Ellingson, a UT-PVIC and School for Solar and Advanced Renewable Energy faculty member and associate professor of physics, came to UT in August 2008 from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Ellingson said he believes UTPVIC’s research during the next 10 years will motivate universities without UT’s credentials to begin research that will further the use of photovoltaics technology in the solar manufacturing industry. “The University of Toledo has a lot of depth and breadth in photovoltaics research,” Ellingson said. “Other universities have many instances where faculty members who have been working in some other material science area will say, ‘I’m working in photovoltaics also.’ “Many of them do very good research. It’s an example of funding focus drawing more researchers to the field, which is part of the intent when the people who decide how funding is allocated for research decide to focus on clean energy materials and technology. Their hope is that the best researchers will come to work on that.”

Southwest supports UT’s partnership with Isofoton NA and its first-generation technology. Thin-film PV technology operates better in diffuse light. “Our [technology] will produce power from dawn to dusk while crystalline silicon is probably at its best in a four-hour window,” he said.

Development: RGP Dean Monske, president and CEO of Regional Growth Partner-

ship (RGP), said that his agency will continue to target what the State of Ohio has identified as Northwest Ohio’s major cluster industries: alternative energy, automotive, advanced manufacturing and materials, bioscience, and transportation and integrated logistics. “Please understand that no one industry takes precedence over the others,” Monske said. “These industries were identified because of existing strength and capacity, as well as

potential for future growth.” Monske said that when the RGP meets with site consultants and other location decision-makers, his staff “touts many advantages of doing business in Northwest Ohio, including geographic location, transportation assets, a trained and educated workforce, a great number of institutions for higher education, local and state tax climates and quality of life assets.” ■ SOLAR CONTINUES ON A12

Development: Port Authority Developing solar energy projects has been, and will continue to be, more and more challenging for the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority primarily because of Ohio’s Renewable and Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard, said Paul Toth, the agency’s president and CEO. “The issue right now is that the utilities are doing everything they can to

fight having to subsidize solar,” Toth said. “It’s become a huge challenge for those of us trying to implement solar. We can’t get any type of commitment from either the state or the utilities to be able to go out and finance these installations.” The renewable portfolio standard requires energy providers to annually buy renewable energy credits. “The utilities have been fighting that, and frankly, there’s queasiness around those of us that have looked

at financing and trying to promote the solar industry in NW Ohio;” Toth said. “At any time, the State of Ohio could say, ‘You know what? We’re just getting rid of this.’ And every one of those renewable energy credit contracts that are written say, ‘If the state gets rid of the renewable portfolio standard, this contract is null and void.’ They no longer basically owe us any money.” ■ SOLAR CONTINUES ON A14

‘Uneasiness’ “Frankly, the [solar] industry can survive with that. It’s the uncertainty as to whether Gov. [John] Kasich or the General Assembly could wake

up tomorrow and just simply get rid of the renewable portfolio standard. That’s kind of the difficult part of being able to go out and finance solar projects,” Toth said. Despite the political uncertainty, Toth said the Port Authority has developed and financed projects like the one-megawatt solar project at Collins Park for the City of Toledo and the financing risk for the General Motors

Powertrain project. In addition, Toth said the Port Authority has conceptualized a $15 million five-megawatt solar project at the Toledo Executive Airport in Wood County, “going as far as getting the interconnection study done with Toledo Edison and having several large development partners work with us.” The airport project would tie into Toledo Edison’s system, Toth said.

“The challenge is getting the renewable energy credits on any kind of a long-term commitment, or even a short-term commitment, knowing that the renewable portfolio standard is going to be there for a long period of time,” he said. “The queasiness with investing $15 million is just producing electricity and selling it does not pay for the [development and construction] costs,

even though the price of panels has come down over the years. “We can’t generate enough revenue to pay off that debt just by producing electricity at five cents a kilowatt hour. We need that renewable energy credit to pay the debt service, and the uneasiness of knowing whether it’s going to be there long-term is why these types of projects haven’t happened,” Toth said. ■ SOLAR CONTINUES ON A16

AUGUST 26, 2012

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

The mental discipline Sgt. Kevin Braun honed during more than a decade as a Toledo police officer served him well inside “The Glass House.” The 33-year-old Walbridge resident, a 12-year veteran of the Toledo Police Department, outlasted 13 other contestants on ABC’s 10-week reality show to walk away with the $250,000 grand prize Aug. 20. “The game was a big mental game inside that house and people were breaking at certain points. They were breaking down mentally,” Braun said in a phone interview with Toledo Free Press. “After 12 years of police work, I’ve developed mental toughness and was able to keep a level head. I didn’t get wrapped up in the drama because I’ve seen it all before. Some things that were a big deal to the people in the house weren’t a big deal to me because I’ve seen real-life drama. So definitely being a police officer was the thing that helped me most in the game.” Six of Braun’s years on the force were spent as a detective with the vice/ narcotics unit. Today, he works as a supervisor in field operations and is also working on a degree in criminal justice. Not surprisingly, Braun said the best part of being on the show was winning. “I had myself convinced there was no way I could beat [fellow finalists] Andrea or Erica. I was mentally preparing myself to lose and then when I won, it was like an out-of-body experience,” Braun said. “I was shocked. I didn’t know what to think. It was the craziest feeling to have gone the whole journey and be the last person standing. I can’t even describe it in words.” Braun’s sister, Alisha Urbina of Walbridge, was on the set in Los Angeles when Kevin was announced as the winner. “When his photo remained intact we just went crazy and ran on stage,” Urbina said in an email to Toledo Free Press. “It was all so surreal. We were so excited for him.” One of Braun’s friends organized viewing parties every Monday night at Wesley’s Bar & Grill, said Urbina, who maintained Braun’s “Glass City Kevin” Facebook page.

“We usually had 40 to 50 people. However, for the finale it was standing room only and the crowd went wild!” she said. Braun, who described himself in his online biography as someone “very competitive who hates to lose,” said that competitive drive helped him on the show. “My whole strategy for the most part was to win the challenge every week because that was the only way to save yourself from limbo for sure,” Braun said. “I wanted to give 100 percent every challenge.” Braun found himself in limbo once, but got enough viewer votes to stay on the show. “It was nerve-racking,” Braun said. “It was the first week I was on the losing team in the challenge and the other side of the house voted to put me in. They wanted to guarantee Ashley would go home and thought the best way to do that would be with me, but that being said, I was completely stressed out. You convince yourself you’re going home. I didn’t think for one minute it was going to be a cakewalk. So that was a stressful time in the house.” The ability to adapt quickly was another important factor on the show as drama flared, alliances shifted, new challenges were announced and contestants were voted off the show. “It changed on a week-to-week basis,” Braun said. “We didn’t know who we were going to get back from limbo. Every week there were so many critical things: the limbo, the challenge, the bottom-two vote. You couldn’t really plan that much ahead. You just had to take things and deal with them.” The show featured interaction not only with other house members but also the viewing audience, who were able to vote on what contestants wore and ate, where they slept and who got sent home each week. “Some of them were more fun than others,” Braun said. “It was always kind of a welcome break from the monotony and gave us something to do in the downtime. We weren’t sure how weighted that was. Ultimately, viewers were watching and if they didn’t think you were letting them control the game, they were going to bounce you out.” Braun said the worst part of the show was the downtime.

SGT. KEVIN BRAUN FLIES HIGH DURING A CHALLENGE ON ABC’S ‘THE GLASS HOUSE.’

“A day in the Glass House was the equivalent of a week or a month in the real world. Time would just go slow,” Braun said. “There’s nothing but time to think. You have no TV, no newspaper. All you can do is talk or think. You can convince yourself of all kinds of things in the house. That’s where the mental aspect comes in. Some people, for all intents and purposes, thought themselves right out of the game.” It was hard to be disconnected from the outside world, especially his 15-yearold daughter Samara, Braun said. The most surprising part was the intensity. “It was way, way, way more intense than I thought it would be,” Braun said. “When I came out, I figured I’d just blend into the background and do good in challenges, but there was a lot of drama and I even got wrapped up in some of it. It was intense. I came out saying, ‘No drama. I’m just going to walk a path and not be involved,’ and lo and behold the first week I was going at it with Alex. It was unavoidable, the drama in the house.” Even so, Urbina said she thought

Braun managed to stay true to himself. “We are so proud of the way Kevin played the game,” Urbina said. “He said before he left that he wanted his friends and family to see him on TV and say ‘Yep, that’s the Kevin I know’ and that is exactly what happened. He was true to himself and his character the entire time. He represented Toledo well.” Braun, who regularly wore Toledo shirts and hats on the show, said he’s thankful to hometown friends and fans who voted for him. “Toledo made this happen,” Braun said. “That’s why I’m very careful to never say, ‘I won this show.’ We won this show. It’s a great city and it’s the reason I won the show.” Braun said he wore so much Toledo gear on the show that some contestants started referring to him as “Toledo” or “Mr. Toledo.” Urbina had “Mr. Toledo” T-shirts made, with proceeds benefiting the Keith Dressel Memorial Scholarship Fund. Dressel was a Toledo police detective killed on duty in 2007. For more information or to order a T-shirt, email Urbina at tgh-

Braun said he had a great experience overall and even made some friends on the show. “My core alliance, Mike and Andrea, are definitely friends and I will stay in contact with them, there’s no doubt,” Braun said. “Jeffrey and some of the early people — Holly, Ashley — they’re good people and on some level I’ll have contact with them in the future.” But for now, it’s back to reality. In his show bio, Braun wrote, “My ultimate goals in life are to raise my daughter to be a good person and to continue to work hard serving the citizens of Toledo,” and he said that’s still the plan. “Honestly, I’m going to take it real slow,” Braun said of his winnings. “There’s nothing I’m going to run out and buy. I’ll just put it away and see what happens. I’m going to be boring with it, to be honest. I’m back home and back to work tomorrow [Aug. 23]. I woke up this morning [Aug. 22] and took my daughter to school. So that’s the plan now. Back to normal as quick as possible.” ✯

foot facility, giving it the capability of making 21,000 meals per day. “We’ve been blessed with wonderful donors over the past 10 years and now that the word’s getting out, we’re seeing more and more people realizing this is a huge impact that we can have,” said Emily Laurel, development coordinator for FLCC. At press time, the FLCC board was still finalizing the exact location of the new kitchen and deciding whether it will be a rehabbed or newly constructed facility, she said. Laurel said that the goal is for FLCC to be in its new location by Jan. 1. “All of our electricity and all of our gas lines are just completely maxed out. We can’t add more equipment so we need a bigger kitchen,” she said. “Time is of the essence for us because this building is deteriorating, so the sooner, the better.” FLCC’s new home will also include a serving area so it can feed children on-site and potentially be rented out by other groups. The nonprofit, known for its nutritious meals, also plans to host cooking classes on how to make healthy meals with resources on hand, Laurel said. Throughout its history, state officials have recognized FLCC for its contributions to feeding children, said Tony Siebeneck, FLCC’s executive director and founder. When he started FLCC in 2002, it served 7,231 meals at two sites during its first summer and operated out of area churches. Now it sends up to 7,000 meals daily to 80 locations. “When we started this, we really didn’t know what was going to happen. … We did not realize it was going to get this large,” Siebeneck said, adding that one reason his nonprofit is so successful is because of its commitment to one cause. Siebeneck became aware of Lucas County’s childhood hunger rate by reading articles. “I didn’t believe it. I just thought, ‘Ah, here’s another bleeding heart story,’” he said. After research, he realized the extent of childhood hunger and decided to do something about it. He left his job in the agriculture industry and started FLCC. “I loved [my old job], but I got kind of tired of working for corporate America and I thought most people talk about helping others, but they really don’t do anything about it. I just kind of felt, ‘Let’s not be a talker, let’s be a doer,’” he said. Siebeneck spent much of his own cash on FLCC and nearly went bankrupt. “I’ve put a lot of my personal financing and time and energy into this way back 10 years ago. It came with

a lot of hard knocks, but it was well worth it,” he said. Siebeneck grew up on a farm near Bellefontaine, Ohio, and has had his own experiences with hunger. “I grew up hungry. I knew what it was like to go without,” he said. FLCC’s success was set to be celebrated Aug. 24 at the Believe Center, 1 Aurora Gonzalez Drive. The Believe Center, SIEBENECK which stresses the importance of family involvement, also has plans for the future. This fall, it plans to offer a women’s eight-week fullfigure fitness program, which includes yoga, Zumba, healthy cooking classes and child care, said Juanita Duran, who operates the center with her family. The Duran family started a sports program 15 years ago, but transitioned to include other programming in May after moving into the Aurora Gonzalez Building and taking on a new name. “It’s important that children and the parents are coming to the event this Friday because we want everyone to be together,” said Duran, who used her social work expertise to expand programming. The center will also offer several other activities this fall, including parkour. The Aug. 24 event is also set to include a bouncy house, an obstacle course and prize giveaways, Laurel said. Other social service agencies were also expected to be on site to distribute information and the Believe Center had some school supplies for children accompanied by their parents. Despite a very successful tenure, Siebeneck said FLCC has more work to do as there are an estimated 25,000 hungry children in Lucas County. However, he and Laurel have high hopes. “Once we get this kitchen, which we will, we’re going to hit that 2 million [meal] mark and it’s not going to take 10 years, it’s going to take less than three,” he said. The expansion project, coupled with help from FLCC’s partnering agencies, has the potential to eliminate childhood hunger in the area, Laurel said. Still, more volunteers, awareness and funds are needed. “You can educate people, you can talk to people about us, you can post on Facebook about us. … You can come down and donate your time, donate your money, donate your ideas,” she said.

A Swiss cheese-eating contest and a new flavor of bratwurst will be among the offerings at this year’s German-American Festival, set for Aug. 24-26 at Oak Shade Grove in Oregon. The 47th annual event will also feature all the popular contests and favorite Swiss-German foods and drinks of past years, said Jack Renz, marketing/public relations committee chairman for the festival. “We’re in our 47th year. That’s quite a statement,” Renz said. “For 47 years we have continually produced a quality product, and I think what we really strive to do is offer something different each time. Even though the public looks for their favorite things and relishes what they like, they also know that each year we try to do some new things. We’re very proud of what people get for the money. They get a heck of a bang for their dollar.” The winner of the new eating contest, set for 7 p.m. Aug. 25, will be the contestant who eats an 8-ounce block of Swiss cheese the fastest, Renz said. The new brat will be a Swiss cheese and mushroom bratwurst handmade by Tank’s Meats in Elmore. “It has an absolutely phenomenal taste,” Renz said. “That’s what’s really fun about being part of the German-American Festival. Each year we try to bring something new to the community to try to keep it cutting-edge.” The festival will be open 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Aug.

24, with a parade and opening ceremonies set for 8 p.m. The event will continue from 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. Aug. 25 and noon to 11 p.m. Aug. 26. Daily admission is $7. Advance tickets, available online at www.germanamericanfestival.net or at various area restaurants and bars, are $6 for one day, $10 for two days or $15 for three days. Children 12 and younger are free when accompanied by an adult. Active military, police, fire and EMS personnel with ID will be admitted free on Aug. 26 and senior citizens with a Golden Buckeye card will be admitted for $1 off admission Aug. 26. Round-trip shuttle tickets are available for $6 and leave from several Toledo area locations. The traditional Swiss Steinstossen, or Swiss stone-throwing contest is set for 3 p.m. on both Aug. 25 and 26. Men will throw 138-pound stones while women will throw 75-pound stones. “That one is the most popular contests, followed by the Masskrugstemmen,” said Festival Chairman Timothy Pecsenye. In the Masskrugstemmen event, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. on both Aug. 24 and 25, contestants lift a liter of beer with one arm stretched parallel to the floor and hold it as long as they can. The Hummel Lookalike Contest for children ages 2 to 10 will take place 4 p.m. Aug. 26. Prizes are awarded for the most authentic look-alike with a focus on overall look, costume, props, pose and facial expressions. There’s also the Brezeln Essen, or soft pretzeleating contest, set for 9 a.m. Aug. 25 and the German

dessert baking contest at 3:30 p.m. Aug. 25. Each hour, festival organizers come on stage to perform a rendition of the scenes played out by the wooden characters in Munich’s Glockenspiel, or city clock. “We come out on the hour and do a little performance to salute the hour,” Renz said. “There’s crowd participation. It’s kind of a crowd-pleaser. It’s really becoming something people look forward to watching.” Bands include Austrian Express from Milwaukee and Phenix from Chicago. Children’s activities include rides, face painting, a clown and more. A German language worship service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 26. There will also be soccer matches on Aug. 25 and 26. The festival, a fundraiser for the German and Swiss cultural center in Oregon, along with a variety of scholarship, athletic and philanthropic programs in the Toledo area, is operated by the nonprofit GAF Society and sponsored by the seven German-American and Swiss-American societies in Toledo. “We’re probably one of the best-known festivals in the area. We’ve been in existence longer than the other ethnic festivals,” Pecsenye said. “People have a fantastic time. They enjoy themselves. You see a lot of happy people, a lot of smiling people with their friends or meeting new friends while exploring German culture, German music, German foods. Just bring a guest and come to the fest!” For more information, visit www.german americanfestival.net. ✯

hen husband and wife team Tim and Q learned the former Charlie’s location (Monroe Street, just west of Talmadge Road), was available, they jumped at the chance to open a Vietnamese and Asian restaurant there. Putting all of their resources into securing the location, they quickly opened for business. Amango/Pho Saigon is now open with a lighted sign and low-priced grand opening specials. This is not a Vietnamese theme restaurant with a Buddhist altar, conical straw hats, incense and waitresses in ao dai (traditional Vietnamese costume). It is not intended to transport you to a dated version of Vietnam designed for Western tourists; Amango is simple and functional. Keep your eyes on the food and your mind on the flavors and you will be magically transported to the humble atmosphere of a restaurant for locals in contemporary Vietnam. On my first visit, I ordered the bánh xèo/sizzling pancake appetizer. This dish is a great example of the effect of French colonialism on Vietnamese cuisine. It gets its name from the sound of the batter sizzling on the pan as it is prepared. Bánh xèo is essentially a French crepe filled with onion, shrimp and seasoned pork. It is accompanied by a plate of fresh mint sprigs plus a few leaves of curly lettuce. To eat bánh xèo like a native, use your hands! Grab a leaf of lettuce, put in a few mint leaves and a piece of the filled crepe. Then roll up the lettuce leaf like a burrito, while keeping the contents inside, and dip it into the accompanying fish sauce before you take your first bite. While I prefer a thinner pancake with more fi lling, Amango’s bánh xèo is a good appetizer to introduce a newcomer to Vietnamese cooking. Order one for the table; it’s big

The Other Side of the Coin On September 2nd, at 4 p.m., WGTE channel 30 Toledo, will be airing “Wants and Needs.” This documentary, hosted by Gordon Ward and myself, represents a six-year study into the causes of recessions and depressions. Begun in 2006, based on a suspicion that the economy was ripe for a significant downturn (based on historical precedents), “Wants and Needs” exposes how the FED and the governing bodies brought on the downturn, cheering all the way, only to throw their hands in the air saying, “No one could have seen it coming” after it happened. But some people did see it coming. And we filmed them for our documentary before the downturn in 2006, predicting the downturn. The documentary offers interviews and insights into how generational dynamics are actually partly to blame for severe economic downturn. The Chinese have a saying, “Wealth never passes more than three generations” and the Western saying is “cobbler to cobbler in three generations.” Both Eastern and Western cultures have been cognizant of the effects that generational trends have on economic trends, but for some reason, we still continue to repeat the same mistakes as a society. Please tune in and encourage young people to do so as well. After all, if the young people do not begin grassroots movements to try to change the economic tides, they will most assuredly be swept out to see by a tsunami of debt, which was incurred by previous generations in an effort to continue the status quo. As far as the general economy for this week? Let’s just say if you have been reading my “The Other Side of the Coin” stories, this week we may see more evidence that the European debt situation is not exactly over. Please tune in: WGTE PBS Channel 30, Sept. 2, at 4 p.m. for “Wants and Needs.” It not only studies the problems we face, it offers solutions.

She had intended to at least visit our 50th state agreement, my parents supposedly did it all wrong. upon completion of her studies, but, as the story They married young, settling down together before goes, she ended up meeting my dad in college and they were settled down themselves. They rarely most of her life’s plans suddenly became null and did the date night thing, with nights out together void.

Yet, somehow they have managed to make it have made almost every aspect of the matrimonial state look like the most trying and inconvenient work for 45 years and continue to do so.

Tissues, Trapper Keepers and triumph

A

ug. 23 was my Independence Day — the very day my beautiful children returned to school. As I walk over the corpses of bawling kindergarten moms who can’t believe little Aidan didn’t cry and that he walked right in the classroom and never turned back … I admit it, I giggle. Every “First Day of School,” I see the huddled masses of moms with mascara running, handing Kleenex to each other like they just witnessed a train wreck. iPhones loaded with freshly snapped pics in hand as they wipe their eyes, with failed promises that they were not going to be the one who cried, often with a sarcastic consoling father nearby. Maybe they thought little Aidan would Jeremy BAUMHOWER just refuse to go and they could swoop right in and be his hero one more time. Well, first-time kindergarten parent, I am here to tell you — you’ll be all right. As a parent of four with my oldest going into her senior year and my youngest tackling the first grade, I have the parental résumé of a “First Day” veteran. Having a home office, I will admit that there is a slight adjustment and sadness that I go through. The newfound silence in the house can be maddening, it can create an emptiness. But rest assured, the silence slowly but always becomes refreshing. The house that just 24 hours before was filled with verbal spats over Wii remotes and constant reminders to wear shoes, or anything, on the bottom of your feet outside has now gone quiet. First-time Kindergarten parents can also look forward to the house remaining tidier/cleaner. The breakfast and lunch buffet where you spend hours being a short-order chef is now closed and replaced with brown bag planning and management sessions the night before. For those of you who are in a single parent situation or who have both parents working, good news, your part-time summer job as your kids’ personal assistant has ended. You no longer have to worry about the camp costs, the carpooling nor the daytime playdates scheduling. Your kids’ days just became booked. If you would like to capture a perfect picture of happy grown-ups in forced commerce, take a trip to the local Walmart or Target today. You’ll witness parents floating down the aisles, with smiles on their faces, clutching their children’s school supplies list, all dreaming of their first day back at school. If you see any sad faces, they tend to be on the future students themselves, especially the ones past the fourth grade. On the rarest of occasions, you might even spot the “golden unicorn” of back-to-school shopping: a teacher. Teachers are the easiest to spot because they often appear to be headed to a funeral. I actually giggled as I penned that. Many school districts including Sylvania and Maumee hold an open house the night before the big day, so students and parents can meet the teachers, drop off supplies, etc. This might be one of my favorite nights of the entire school year. The pageantry, the desk placement drama, is all very similar to the season premiere episode of “The Bachelor.” One by one the families roll in and meet the new teacher and the other pupils, cliques start to form, alliances begin, it seems the only thing missing is host Chris Harrison and the “first impression” rose. Toledo needs a savvy bar owner to plan a St. Patrick’s Day-like festival for parents on the first day of school. The “Back To School” street festival would start around 7 a.m. and would make the perfect place for every parent to dry their tears … while drinking a well-earned cold refreshing beverage. The hired band, hopefully The Bridges, would play their first song exactly the moment the first bell rang for the new school year. An omelet short-order chef would allow some needed retribution as he politely takes our orders, only to have them changed five times, just as our kids did to us the week before. Unused Wii remotes should be placed on every table as a reminder of the horror we just survived and maybe a “symbolic” unopened box of tissues to represent the moms still crying in the parking lot. There will be a moment where I am sad with the thought of my babies getting older and growing up. There will just be many more moments of happiness occurring in my quiet house. ✯ To read more of Jeremy Baumhower’s thoughts please follow him on Twitter @jeremytheproduc.
