Independents’ day

T

hey both eschew political party affiliation. They both have long careers in the service of public safety. They are both strong-willed, opinionated men who are not afraid to break a few eggs to make an omelet. And on Nov. 5, incumbent mayor Mike Bell and Councilman D. Michael Collins will face each other on the ballot to be Toledo mayor. The Sept. 10 primary election offered the potential for a few nightmare scenarios but the progression of Bell and Collins is not one of them. Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez and Blade-endorsed City Councilman Joe McNamara can go back to their honorable roles and contemplate their next moves; there will no doubt be major roles for them to play in the region’s future, and Thomas F. Pounds maybe they’ve learned a lesson in what happens when two similar candidates split a vote. Upstarts Alan Cox and Michael Konwinski brought good ideas to the race, and they should find a way to continue to share their thoughts on Toledo development. Hopefully, this will be the last mayoral race in which Opal Covey drains time and resources from the conversation; her schtick is tiresome and fails to expand the political discourse. In a very similar vein, Toledoans can also hope this will be the last primary season with any role for perennial nonfactor Jon Stainbrook of the Lucas County Republican Party and Board of Elections. Stainbrook’s already impuissant influence is shrinking faster than Miley Cyrus’ jean shorts. In the City Council race, it is gratifying to see some of my choices — Councilmen Rob Ludeman, Adam Martinez and Shaun Enright, joined by Sandy Spang and Bill Delaney — move on. This is not the time to dwell on some of the voters’ less insightful choices, but that time will come. We now have several weeks for Bell and Collins to make their case — including an Oct. 30 debate hosted by Toledo Free Press and WTOL-11. It will take a lot of effort for Collins to sway Bell’s supporters, but the city can be confident that the wild cards have been removed from the equation and no matter the final result, Toledo will be in competent hands.

The Arms Forces

With open arms T his month I celebrate my Alive Day — the day I faced death and won the battle. It is a day of great meaning for me because without my Alive Day and my brain injury, I might never have had the joy of working with so many veterans and their families. When I founded my nonprofit, I was told civilians could not break the barrier that existed with veterans due to “military culture” and they would not open up and trust that a civilian could help them. The people who said these things to me were wrong! There is a culture with veterans that is based on their experiences in the military. Pam This part of what the naysayers said was true. They have terms and acronyms and ways of doing things that might not be familiar to those who have not served in the military. But our veterans are the bankers we trust, the police officers who provide safety, the politicians we elect, the soccer coaches we share time with on Saturday afternoons. They are the doctors who heal, the actors who entertain and the singers who take us on lyrical journeys. Our veterans are also the homeless on benches, the struggling at food banks, the broken; they’re searching not so much for “why” but “how” they can find their way back home again. They have physically returned home, but some never reach that feeling of comfort or feeling “at home” where their guard can be let down and they feel safe and accepted. There is much written about veterans helping veterans, but very little about how civilians can and do make a difference in the lives of veterans. Saying “thank you” is great, but words alone won’t help conquer the civilian/veteran divide. We must take the time to get to know each other. By finding common ground we can begin to build trusting relationships that can lead to positive changes in veterans’ lives and allow civilians to gain by knowing their fellow veteran citizens. Our community benefits when veterans are welcomed, understood and integrated with its civilians. How can we begin to understand our nation’s veterans? Spend time with them. Learn about them through their stories. Listen to them

first with your heart, then with your ears. I call this “Inspirational Listening.” The past four years have brought many thousands of military members, veterans and families into my life through The Arms Forces. I was once one of those citizens who loved her country, cried at patriotic songs, but I never thought I could personally make a difference in the life of a veteran. When I began using a simple phrase “Tell me your story,” the walls between our cultures began to come down. When a veteran shared their story, judgment had no place in our conversation. I learned from veterans how to talk with veterans. Hays I learned it isn’t necessary to know their military language. I learned it was okay to ask most questions, but to never ask questions about killing or death. I learned that we had more in common than we had differences. The greatest lesson I learned is that an ordinary citizen could make a difference as one human being reaching out to another with love and gratitude. Veterans account for around 7 percent of the U.S. population. Seems like simple math that 93 percent of civilians should find a way to ensure that veterans have the health care that is needed in every community; that they be given the opportunity to be employed and take care of their families and be welcomed not just at parades and events, but welcomed into the heart of citizens in the communities where they reside. It makes sense that our veterans know they are accepted for having different experiences while acknowledging that they still have the same dreams and ambitions of civilian citizens. Veterans don’t want our sympathy. They want services that match needs. They want civilians to know that not all veterans make negative headlines in the news. Those with the invisible wounds of traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress want their injuries recognized and understood. Veterans want to know they made a difference and are appreciated. Isn’t that something we all want? O Pam Hays is president and founder of The Arms Forces, www.thearms forces.org; (419) 891-2111; Facebook. com/thearmsforces.

n MILLER CONTINUED FROM 3 I wasn’t making a big fuss about hitting 500 miles, but I checked the Nike app every half-mile or so and knew when I was about to cross that mark. As we walked, Evan, who alternately ran ahead and dropped behind based on what interesting bugs he could find, walked between us and took his granddad’s hand and mine. And so it was that as the sun lazily settled in the western sky, three generations of ScottMiller men walked the sidewalk in an unbroken line as the stentorian Nike app voice noted the mileage that propelled me through the 500-mile mark. It meant absolutely nothing. And it meant absolutely everything. As of Sept. 18, I am one year out from the bariatric sleeve surgery that has helped me go from 380 pounds to just a few pounds more than 200. It has been a dramatic experience, one that has changed my entire existence. I sleep better, think more clearly, serve as a better father and husband and in general experience life with a zest and passion I thought had been lost with my early 20s. My relationship with food has been completely redefined. I’m not flawless in my dietary choices, but I have a discipline (I would never say “control”) that has evolved from dealing with mindless cravings to dealing with impulsive wants to focusing less on food and more on activity. Very little of the transformation was planned; it has been a natural evolution as I adapt to my changing physiology and psychology. There are many ways of measuring the changes, from the abandonment of medications and sleep apnea machines to the challenge of re-learning how to buy clothes to the way I now fit into seats in theaters, airplanes and other public places. There is also the wonderful change in a measurement I invented, the Penis-to-Belly Juxtaposition Index, or PB&J for short. To obtain this factor, the obese male measures how far the non-erect member protrudes past, or is hidden by, the distended belly. This measurement should only be taken in profile, as looking toward the toes may produce extreme frustration. At my most rotund, my PB&J Index was -7. I am too modest to proclaim my current PB&J number in such a public forum, but — spoiler alert — it’s as far positive as it once was negative. Yay! Another of the more amusing shifts in my life has been the change in invitations to participate in public events. I used to be asked to judge food events and cooking activities. I helped the Metroparks launch its Autumn Adventure walking program and most recently opened a discussion with the organizers and sponsors of the Medical Mutual

The answer was no. No, I am not. I’m ambitious, not delusional. But I am interested in assembling a five-person marathon relay team, which obligates me to just more than five miles. I have some Toledo Free Press runners and my main walking partner recruited, so the plan is to train and prepare during the next few months. Many of you have been exceedingly kind about this very personal journey, and I hear from scores of readers who are making similar health changes and have taken up walking. But it’s a major step from couch to walking to preparing for a team marathon, which means I have a lot of learning to do. I invite you to join me on the path to the Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon; I will write occasionally about everything from buying the correct shoes to staying safe on the roads; from what time of day to run to how fast to run to stretching and dealing with injuries. It won’t be every week; I don’t need a string of Monday-morning phone calls from anonymous people screeching about how angry they are that I bore them (which is, if you think about it, kind of an oxymoron). But I am excited about my progress and excited so many of you are on similar paths, so I look forward to the discussion and the next step in our fitness evolution. Weight loss, like so many things in life, is a marathon, not a sprint. O Michael S. Miller is editor in chief of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

EVENTS

By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

The first thing to know about TEDxToledo: It’s not named after a guy named Ted. “A lot of people ask, ‘Who is Ted?’” said Will Lucas, curator of the Sept. 19 event, which will feature 23 speakers on topics ranging from art, music, science, business, politics and more. TEDx events are local talks based on the global conference series TED, which stands for technology, entertainment and design. Its slogan is “Ideas worth spreading.” “We were looking for people who not only have good ideas or a perspective on how to reimagine Toledo, but are actually doing something,” Lucas said. Lucas, who also curated Toledo’s inaugural TEDx event last year, said the idea is to “bolster our level of thinking” by bringing together people who don’t typically get to interact. “It’s an opportunity to show people something outside of their box,” Lucas said. “There will be people who would never have had the opportunity to sit next to each other. That’s what I’m most excited about.” Last year’s TEDxToledo sold out and Lucas expects this year’s event to as well. It’s set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19 at One SeaGate (the Fifth Third Bank building). Tickets are $75. “We still hear ripples of positive feedback from last year’s event from people who said it changed their whole perspective on Toledo, even people who have been here for a long time,” Lucas said. The title of this year’s event is

reIMAGINE. Each speaker will have the stage for eight to 18 minutes. “We want to reimagine what Toledo is,” Lucas said. “Historically we’ve been a manufacturing hub, which has kind of left over the past 10 years. We’re in the middle ground between what we were and what we could be. There’s a large group that wants to be what we were and a large group that wants to be what we could be. What is our history and how can we build on that for the future of Toledo?”

Speakers

An opportunity to think about the direction Northwest Ohio is headed is why City of Oregon Administrator Michael Beazley is most excited to speak at TEDxToledo. “One of the things I want to really emphasize is there’s not one solution,” Beazley said. “We need to try a lot of things to move a community forward. The notion that we can just find that one thing and all our problems can be solved, I don’t think it’s realistic for most places.” Mike Osswald, vice president of experience innovation at Hanson Inc., said his TEDx talk will focus on “making sense of marketing in the digital age.” “All these rapid changes we’re seeing in technology, even just in the last three to four years of consumer electronics, websites and apps, the pace of it is like never before and it’s changing how people live and make decisions about what to buy and how they want to interact with companies,” Osswald said. “For marketers trying to keep up with all the new stuff, it’s like drinking out of a fire hose. It’s almost impossible. [But] as much as things have changed, a lot of

it is the same. I want people who are in business to realize they know more than they think they do.” Osswald spoke at a TEDx event hosted by Bowling Green State University in 2011. “When you put all those different disciplines together in a room, synergy happens. It really creates new ideas and opportunities for all the different people involved,” Osswald said. “Creativity often comes when you’re not thinking directly at something but thinking around it, and that’s what TEDx does.” Artist Jefferson Nelson said he plans to discuss the utopian ideal of choosing “autonomy over profit,” with the goal of getting his listeners to think about the value in doing the things they don’t get paid for. “My biggest goal is to get people to do the things they are passionate about and not just think about making money,” said Nelson, who sculpts, draws, paints and works on art installations. “In an ideal world, I’d basically take making money out of the equation for everyone and have us function in a way that’s about the greater good.”

“I really got inspired,” Mahler said. “It helped me recalibrate the way I thought about business and how to build an enthusiastic community for a product. Over the years, every time I had a question I’ve gone back to it.” Morales and others said they are excited to hear the other speakers. “I love to watch people talk about stuff they are passionate about,” Morales said. “Plus, I like that they are short and sweet. They get right to the meat of the talk, not a drawn-out lecture.” Other speakers include Ballard Architectural Studio owner Andre Ballard; Great Lakes Institute founder Dave Beckwith; ex-atheist and University Church pastor Julian Davies; Blade crime reporter Taylor Dungjen; Toledo Public Schools Interim Superintendent Romules Durant; University of Toledo President Emeritus Dan Johnson; Toledo historian and North Shore Strategy Managing Principal Tedd Long; ProMedica President and CEO Randy Oostra; Root Learning co-founder Randy Root; Leadership Toledo Executive Director Dave Schlaudecker; political strategist Gabrielle Seay; Bowling Green State University biology professor Karen Sirum; foodie Molly R.

“It’s a chance for us to practice and also a less formal chance for people who can’t afford the tickets to come out and hear a few of the talks,” Nelson said. For the past two years, Morales has collected historical Toledo photographs and photographed them in front of the modern-day locations. He calls the series Toledo Rephotography. “It was the juxtaposition of old and new that really grabbed me,” Morales said. “Hopefully learning and connecting to the past will enable people to take ownership of the community and be involved in it, therefore helping to control its future path.” Adam Mahler, owner of Ampelography Fine Wine Sales and Marketing, said he hopes TEDxToledo inspires attendees to look at Toledo differently. “The wine business isn’t something you think about being in Toledo,” Mahler said. “I hope [attendees] realize that Toledo’s unique limitations are no greater than any other city’s unique limitations and if you are smart and assertive about it you can figure out how to make any place work for you and turn what could be a perceived negative into something you can use to your advantage.” Before Mahler founded Ampelography in 2009, he listened to a lot of TED talks.

CRIME

By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

The chants of “Bring Elaina home” have turned to “Justice for Elaina.” A family, neighborhood and city is mourning after remains found in an East Toledo garage were identified as those of 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth, who had been missing since June 2. The “immature human skeletal remains,” identified by DNA, were found Sept. 5 in a box on a shelf in the rafters of a detached garage at 704 Federal St., the home where Elaina was last seen. A cause of death has not ELAINA been released and no new charges have been filed. The identification was announced Sept. 10 and police have said the investigation is ongoing. Elaina’s mother, Angela Steinfurth, and Steinfurth’s ex-boyfriend, Steven W. King, are both in custody facing obstruction of justice charges. King’s trial date is set for Oct. 7. Steinfurth has a pretrial hearing set for Sept. 25. At a news conference Sept. 6, police said the garage had been searched in the past, but declined to say what prompted them to search again Sept. 5. In response to a question about the handling of the case, Toledo Police Chief Derrick Diggs defended his department. “We’re not going to get into all this how many times we checked here, how many times we checked that,” Diggs said. “We had a lot of deception taking place, being told to us, by a variety of sources in this community, and because of that we took the investigation where we felt we needed to take it.” Afterward, Steinfurth’s stepfather Richard Schiewe called for unity and family friend Michael Neer read a statement: “Thank you for all the hope and prayers and support through all of this, but nothing could have prepared us for what was discovered yesterday on Federal Street. We as human beings never want to believe that tragic stories like this are even possible in one’s own life, but for me and my family this is real. To have to come to the realization that someone you love so dear is taken away from you forever, in our case this is real. To never get to get another hug or kiss from my granddaughter and never to see her sweet smile and hold her in my arms breaks my heart.

Every day since she went missing has been a remembrance of what we were searching for. Thanks to the kind and caring people in the community and the search teams that exhausted hundreds of hours of their own time and the hope and prayers from family and friends that reached out to us in support. I cannot thank you all enough for never giving up with your prayers.”

Justice for Elaina march

Hundreds of family members, friends and supporters gathered later that evening in East Toledo for a prayer vigil, followed by a march around the block shouting “Justice for Elaina!” and a balloon release in a nearby park. Elaina’s grandfather Terry Steinfurth Sr. and cousin Ginger Smith led the chant, but Elaina’s father Terry Steinfurth Jr., his girlfriend Becky Navaugh and Schiewe were largely silent as they walked. “It’s just overwhelming,” Steinfurth Jr. said later, speaking quietly, his eyes hidden by sunglasses. “It’s overwhelming the support of the community.” Steinfurth Jr. said his older daughter, 4-year-old Kylee, and his girlfriend’s children often ask about Elaina.

“Every day,” he said. “It never stops.” Linda Hall and her daughter Tracey Danielski, both of Perrysburg, have been regulars at the vigils and volunteered as members of the search parties that scoured the area looking for signs of Elaina in the days and weeks after her disappearance. Hall grew up in East Toledo, where her late husband was friends with Steinfurth Sr. “We came out because it’s just what you do. You don’t have to be blood to be family,” Danielski said. “It’s just so sad. You just cherish every day. My grandson is 3. I can’t imagine not knowing where he is. It makes me sick to think every time we walked down that street that baby was in that garage.” Paula Chadwick of North Toledo said she lived at 704 Federal St., the home belonging to King’s mother, Julie King, for about five years growing up. “It never, ever looked like that. It was beautiful then,” said Chadwick, who said she never met Elaina and hadn’t talked to the King family in years, but came to the vigil because she has grandchildren close to Elaina’s age. “[When I heard the address] I was like, ‘Whoa.’ Then I heard the name

and it really blew me back,” Chadwick said. “It’s just a shame.” Teiah Briscoe of East Toledo was among those who tied a balloon to the front porch of the nearby house that has served as a memorial and meeting headquarters for the past three months. “We all have babies,” Briscoe said. “It’s scary.” “If it was our kid, we’d want people over here,” added her friend Angel Miller, also of East Toledo. Felisha Popovich of East Toledo echoed that sentiment as she placed a flower on the porch while holding her 7-month-old daughter Jada. “I just feel bad for the family and the little girl especially,” Popovich said. “I have a daughter of my own so I know it has to be heartbreaking. I just wanted to show respect.” Vickie Linke of North Toledo knows the pain of losing a child. Her 20-year-old son, Nicholas Linke, was killed last year in a Toledo shooting. A “jailhouse march” for Elaina, held Sept. 8 at the Lucas County Courthouse and ending at the Lucas County Corrections Center, fell on the oneyear anniversary of his death. “This week’s been especially hard

and then with this finding it brings it all back home again,” said Linke, who went to school with Steinfurth Sr. and his wife Brenda. She said she came to show support for the family, especially Navaugh, whose children and Steinfurth Jr.’s children were close. After the march, Linke watched as a group of balloons was released from a nearby park. “That one little balloon doesn’t want to leave,” Linke said, pointing to one lower than the rest. “That’s probably Elaina holding it down.” After the balloon release, Steinfurth Sr. stood looking at the porch filled with balloons, stuffed animals, flowers, cards and candles. He carefully moved each lighted candle off the porch and onto the sidewalk for safety. “I love it,” Steinfurth Sr. said of the number of people who came. “I’m glad to see so many people still care. I wish we could have had this kind of a turnout for a happier ending, but we’re going to get closure and that’s what we need. “If Elaina’s watching it, she loves it,” he added, turning to his son Steinfurth Jr. and wrapping him in a hug. “Right? If Elaina’s watching it, she loves it.” O

POLITICS

Toledo Free Press Political Writer bdick@toledofreepress.com

The mayoral election will be a battle of the Mikes. Toledoans voted Sept. 10 to put incumbent Mayor Mike Bell and City Councilman D. Michael Collins on the general election ballot in November. The two winning candidates bested five others, including Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez and City Councilman Joe McNamara, both Democrats. This will be the first time in recent history that Toledoans will not see a Democrat on the general election ballot. Bell and Collins are both independents. According to unofficial results from the Lucas County Board of Elections, Bell nabbed 26.7 percent of the votes. The race for the final spot was close, with Collins securing a place in the general election with 24.45 percent, while Lopez (22.92 percent) and McNamara (22.44 percent) both came within a few hundred votes of winning. Rounding out the results for the contest were Alan Cox (1.59 percent), Mike Konwinski

(1.19 percent) and Opal Covey (0.6 percent). Additionally, 0.12 percent of voters chose the write-in option. Collins, who pulled off the surprise second place finish despite raising far less money than his three biggest competitors, said he hadn’t yet come to grips with his showing. “I don’t know if I’ve realized it yet. I feel humbled. That’s the only word to define what I’m feeling,” Collins said. However, Collins said some of his younger campaign staff were embracing the victory more than he was. “They’re enthusiastic. The only time I can remember seeing this excitement on faces is when President Obama won, and when they showed the youth in Chicago, you could see the hope in their eyes. We saw hope today,” Collins said. Collins also said he was satisfied with his campaign, and looks forward to working with the candidates who didn’t make Tuesday’s cut. “We all ran good campaigns, and the results show that the margin of loss was small. I look forward to working with Lopez and McNamara,” he said. n ELECTION CONTINUES ON 10

RxMap® Brian Coehrs, PharmD, RPh Director of Pharmacy Operations

People often ask, “Why is it so important to follow my medication schedule exactly the way my doctor prescribed it?” Your good health is the answer. Your doctor wants the prescribed medications to work as well as they can for you. If you don’t take them in the right way, your symptoms could get worse. The Pharmacy Counter RxMap can make it easier for you to keep track of your medications. Our calendar-style punch card organizes your pills into one handy, easy-to-use package. It’s pre-sorted – just for you – by time of day and day of week. RxMap can help if:

• You take more than four medications a day.

D. Michael Collins said he is an independent, but knows he will appeal to those angry with mayor Mike Bell for his support of Senate Bill 5.

n ELECTION CONTINUED FROM 9 Collins also noted that although he is an independent, he has his voter base for the November election pinned down. “They will be men and women who believe that Mayor Bell is not right on right to work, and forgot his roots of public service. He’s the poster child for Senate Bill 5,” Collins said. Collins and Bell both have a background in public safety. Bell is a former fire chief and state fire marshal, and Collins is a former Toledo Police officer and former union president for the city’s police officers. Jen Sorgenfrei, public information officer and spokesperson for the mayor, said Bell is excited about an independent versus independent election. “He thinks having two independents gives them the opportunity to talk very directly to their constituents,” Sorgenfrei said. And while such a matchup may have come as a surprise to some Toledoans, Sorgenfrei said Bell had been thinking about this scenario. “He had been speculating that it could be him and Collins because the two Democrats were going at each other,” Sorgenfrei said.

Lopez: Party divided

One of those Democrats, Lopez, said she had come to terms with her defeat. “I’ve never been third. As soon as I went third, I had a bad feeling,” Lopez said. “But I’m feeling good. I talked to my family, and they’re what’s most important. I’m at peace with it.” Lopez, who came under scrutiny from fellow Democrat McNamara, said that the feuding was what ultimately led to her demise. “Our party is clearly divided, and the numbers speak for themselves. A divided party will fail,” she said. “I’ve never been attacked by another Democrat, and it finally took its toll on me.” However, Lopez said she “respects the wishes of the voters,” and plans to support Collins. And despite her loss, Lopez said she believes something good came out of her run. “This race has raised a lot of good issues, and each candidate clearly cares about the state of the city,” Lopez said. McNamara did not return requests for comment.

City Council

Toledoans also voted for City Council candidates, narrowing down the field of 17 to 12 candidates whose

names will appear on November’s ballot. Six at-large seats are available, and four incumbents are running. Councilmen Rob Ludeman (13.24 percent), Steve Steel (8.36 percent), Adam Martinez (7.08 percent) and Shaun Enright (6.35 percent) all made it past Tuesday’s primary, and have a shot to reclaim their Council seats. Former mayor Jack Ford and Toledo Public Schools Board of Education member Larry Sykes also had big returns, with 11.6 percent and 8.36 percent, respectively. Also moving on to the general election are Sandy Spang, who was among the top three vote-getters with 9.88 percent, as well as former Carty Finkbeiner staffer Theresa Gabriel (8.27 percent), Bill Delaney (4.89 percent), James Nowak (4.62 percent), Joseph Celusta (3.84 percent) and Sean Nestor (3.14 percent). Candidates Joshua Fowler, Ron Johns, James Martin, Ernest McCarthy and Alfonso Narvaez did not move on.

Maumee

Voters in Maumee also headed to the polls Tuesday to decide which eight of the nine City Council candidates would square off in the city’s

November general election. Incumbents Brent Buehrer, Mike Coyle, Timothy Pauken and Julie Rubini will take on newcomers John Schafer, Hal Simon, Tom Wagener Jr. and Maria Zapiecki. One of the precincts in Maumee also had a local option for voters to decide on, which would allow Santa Ana, LLC, which operates La Fiesta Restaurant on Reynolds Road to sell wine, mixed drinks and liquor on Sundays between 11 a.m. and midnight. Voters in that precinct approved the option by a margin of 91.43 percent to 8.57 percent. Lucas County Board of Elections Deputy Director Dan DeAngelis said the primary election didn’t bring any major problems. “We’ve had reports of minor problems, from people not showing up, to being late, to minor problems with machines,” DeAngelis said. “It’s an election day, and if we didn’t have any reports, I’d be scared because every election day has minor issues.” One thing that may have been alarming to election officials was the low turnout of voters. Keeping in trend with other primaries, only 15.11 percent of the 164,645 registered voters in Toledo voted Sept. 10. O

DEVELOPMENT

TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

Aspiring entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to launch a company at the second Startup Weekend Toledo, Sept. 20-22 at the Nitschke Technology Commercialization Complex on the UT engineering campus. “Startup Weekend is designed to be the most effective platform for growing new businesses from the ground up over the course of a weekend,” said Lindsey Danforth, lead organizer of the local event this year. “A key facet of the weekend — and a central value for participants — is the spirit of complete collaboration, buy-in and ownership,” she said. Attendees will pitch their ideas; form teams to develop a business model, product prototype and designs; present their work and win prizes to help establish the emerging startup business. Teams form around the popular ideas as determined by vote followed by a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. People choose what topic or team to join. The weekend culminates with presentations before local entrepreneurial leaders offering critical feedback. Concept pitching and team building will take place on Friday. Teams will form around concepts and various skills that are brought to the table, leaving the remainder of the weekend for mind mapping, strategizing and building a real business, Danforth explained. On Sunday night, the new business ideas will be pitched to a panel of judges and the winning team will receive a “Two-hour IP Brainstorming Session” and a two-month part-time membership to Seed Coworking space, with other possible prizes to be added. Startup Weekend attracts the community’s best doers and makers. Knowledgeable and successful entrepreneurs are there to inspire, share and mentor the teams throughout the weekend, Danforth said. Participants also receive invaluable one-on-one time with the movers and shakers within the community, as local tech and startup leaders take part in Startup Weekends as coaches and judges. Some of the people lined up for this year include Gene Powell of Seed Coworking, StartUp Toledo and Spoke; Erika Carlson from Girl Develop It Detroit; Bill Sattler of local graphic de-

sign agency Madhouse; Kristin Kiser, owner of Black Kite Coffee; and Joe Gough of Rocket Ventures. By spending a weekend working to build scalable companies, participants CAN build long-lasting relationships and possibly walk away with a new business, job or even an investor in the startup business, Danforth said. “We had a great mix of ideas from fitness apps to crowd-funding urban renewal to a smoothie truck,” Danforth said about the first Startup Weekend Toledo held last year. In 2012, they had four people go through Startup Weekend and go on to build a new business and get funding from Rocket Ventures. Two participants won money at the Northwest Ohio Business Plan Competition last year, she said. However, development of the winning startup last year, a physical fitness app called Fueled, has been put on hold temporarily because the principals are working other full-time jobs, according to Steve Plummer, who originated the idea for the business. Aaron Harwell sought out mentors to help him finish an idea for a photo booth/app business called Twine.It. He met people at Startup Weekend who helped him get some early-stage funding from Rocket Ventures and also worked with UT Innovation Enterprises. Zachary Kraner was inspired at Startup Weekend last year and later launched his own company called Intrinsic Made. The business creates and sells apparel and accessories that are affordable and wearable works of art. Intrinsic Made offers handmade infinity scarves, stylish sunglasses that come in a handmade bag, and a variety of T-shirts at its store at www.intrinsic made.storenvy.com. The store is powered by Storenvy, an online store system and marketplace for creative businesses. “Startup Weekend showed me that you don’t have to sit around and wait for something good to come along.

Jessica Franchino and Zachary Kraner, partners IN Intrinsic Made, show one of theIR products.

With a good idea, good people and lots of hustle, you can make things happen,” Kraner said about his experience last year. “It encouraged me and gave me the extra push to pursue my idea.” Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Based in Seattle, the nonprofit organization has facilitators in more than 200 cities in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North and South America with more than 400 events

malformation. Last year’s walk raised more than $530,000; 80 percent of the money funded research. The local walk, coordinated by Haupricht, begins at 11 a.m. Sept. 21 at Monclova Primary School, 8035 Monclova Road; registration begins at 9 a.m. Participants are asked to pre-

register online at conquerchiari.org, but it is not required. T-shirts will be provided to those who preregister by Sept. 16 and contribute at least $25. For more information, contact Haupricht at (419) 822-6049 or Jill Miller at (419) 410-8522 or email at ccwaatoledo@rocketmail.com. O

Three members of Kellie Haupricht’s household have been diagnosed with Chiari malformation, facing 60 of the neurological disorder’s 200 symptoms. The malformation occurs when the brain descends out of the skull and puts pressure on the spine; some symptoms include severe headaches, neck pain, balance problems, weakness in arms and legs and respiratory problems. Close to 300,000 people are diagnosed with the disorder in the United States, Haupricht said. Approaching 50 years old, Haupricht considers herself lucky. She was diagnosed three years ago after being incorrectly diagnosed with lupus and a form of multiple sclerosis two different times. Haupricht suffers “drop attacks,” a symptom of Chiari malformation where she passes out due to her brain stem being so close to the skull, causing her body’s nerve sensations to stop. She has broken bones from falling. Haupricht said the disease is hard to diagnose because of the wide array of symptoms, so patients often go five or more years before being diagnosed. She works with Conquer Chiari Toledo to bring awareness to the condition, in hopes that might change. “It’s not rare; a lot of people try to say it’s rare,” Haupricht said. “What is really rare about it is the fact that the majority of doctors, physicians and even neurosurgeons have never heard of it or, if they’ve heard of it, they do not know how to diagnose it properly and they don’t know how to treat it properly.” Recent studies have shown the disorder is genetic and often affects multiple family members, Haupricht said.

Haupricht’s daughter, Jessica, also has the disorder. The condition she has is known as Chiari Zero (most people have Chiari One), meaning it is being watched but not treated. Haupricht said as Jessica grows older, it could cause more problems. Haupricht’s son, Nathan, has a more severe case of the disorder. He has had nine brain surgeries related to Chiari malformation after it took 12 years for him to be diagnosed. He missed four consecutive years of school. “None of his surgeries were done here in the area. We had to travel outside of the area to have proper surgery. If we would’ve allowed the neurosurgeons here to do what they wanted to do at the time, he would not be with us today,” Haupricht said. “One of [Conquer Chiari’s] big goals is to be able to have the surgeons and doctors educated in our area so that our patients are not having to travel outside of the area, or if they do have to have surgery here in Ohio then the surgery is done properly.” There are no studies showing if life expectancy is affected by the disorder. “I know, with my experience, the older a patient gets, it’s a very excruciating life. You’re not able to do much. A lot of people end up in wheelchairs or bedridden,” Haupricht said. Haupricht said the only way to fight Chiari is through surgery to help slow the progression. Because the research is so new, Haupricht said there isn’t any continuity in care. Conquer Chiari is a “public charity dedicated to improving the experiences and outcomes of Chiari patients through education, awareness and research,” according to a news release. Last year, the Conquer Chiari Research Center was opened at the University of Akron, was first of its kind dedicating all its research to Chiari

Laurel Lovitt, a second-year University of Toledo student majoring in sales and marketing, launched Laurel’s Princess Parties in May.

UT student starts business to teach young girls respect By Amanda Eggert

Special to Toledo Free Press

While some young girls fantasize about growing up to be a princess, a University of Toledo student is living that dream. It started as a one-time thing, dressing up as a princess for a family friend’s birthday party. But it turned into a small successful business for Laurel Lovitt, a second-year majoring in sales and marketing. Her business, Laurel’s Princess Parties, was launched in May 2013 and is currently booked for six months out. Lovitt said as Princess Laurel, she helps young girls build confidence and teaches them to respect others. “It’s not the crown and the dress that you wear, but it is how you uphold yourself and how each of us can be a role-model in our community,” she said. “We can all be leaders, but how can you do that? That’s the role of a princess.” At the parties as Princess Laurel, Lovitt hosts “princess training,” which includes proper posture, how to curtsy and bow and why manners are important. But it’s not all hard work — there’s also story time and tiara-making.

“They make their own tiara, but they are not allowed to put those tiaras on because I bring the red carpet and I actually crown each of the girls a princess,” she said. “They have to take a royal oath and it’s that they are going to be respectful and kind to one another, and that they are going to live out the life of a princess and be a leader and role model.” After the coronation ceremony, the girls enjoy a celebration ball filled with music and dancing. Lovitt signs pictures as Princess Laurel when the party ends, and the girls each get a copy. But signing autographs isn’t what Lovitt said it’s all about; it’s about the smiles. “Each and every weekend when I put on that dress and that tiara, I know what it stands for,” she said, “and it’s not just an item, but it’s what’s inside … that’s the inner princess.” Being a positive role model is something Lovitt said she values in her life and in her business. “I think with me it’s the greatest college experience because I get to run my own business, work my own hours and have so much fun being a role model for the community,” she said.

Along with the support of her family and boyfriend, Lovitt said her friends and members of the community have supported her dream as well. “It’s been a very positive reaction in the community and I’m just thankful,” she said. “I was able to leave my job at the Disney Store and do this full time, and it’s just been a blessing.” In pursuit of those dreams, Lovitt plans to franchise nationwide or franchise as a nonprofit organization after she graduates from UT. “I see that vision of leaving a legacy and helping the future generation to grow and all of us can do that with working together.” Lovitt also wants to create a line of ball gowns that are affordable for girls. And on top of that, she is also considering writing and illustrating children’s stories about anti-bullying and respect. “You dream big or you go home,” she said. Dreaming big is advice that Lovitt has taken to heart and recommends for everyone — as long as it comes with action. “I just had this dream of becoming a princess,” she said, “and now it’s a reality.” For more information, visit www.laurelsprincessparties.com.

September 15, 2013

A Toledo tradition since 2005 ToledoFreePress.com

Three is a magic number

he Retirement Guys love the number three. Why? When thinking about what makes a formula successful, more often than not there are three key ingredients. If you consider the recipes for delicious food and drink, there are typically three important parts. For example, spaghetti typically consists of pasta, seasonMark ings and tomatoes. Nolan Think about how it would taste if one of the three were left out. For you connoisseurs of beer you know there are three key ingredients for a good taste — yeast, malt and hops. When preparing a good tasting dish, after you mix two things together it is typically the third added ingredient that makes you say “wow.” You have heard the expression “one plus one is two,” but we take it one step further and say, ‘One plus one plus one equals three!’” Let’s examine the significance of three a little further. For a stool not to tip over, you need three legs. We think of matter in three ways — mineral, vegetable and animal. Time is thought of in three ways — past, present and future. We typically eat three meals a day. There are three parts to our being — mind, body and spirit. Humans are capable of three types of things — thoughts, words and deeds. A human life develops in three trimesters. Three is the symbol of the cube and stands for what is solid, real, substantial and complete. Even God has the three main attributes of omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence. He presents himself in the three parts of the trinity as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Therefore three denotes divine perfection. Need we say more? I (Mark) recently read a book called “The Success System that Never Fails” by William Clement Stone. I like old books and this one was written in 1962. I was born in 1961, so for me it puts it in perspective how long the book has been around. What I think is great is how concepts of books like this become timeless and are just as valuable and valid today as they were more than 50 years ago. In the book, the author points out three key ingredients to success. Inspiration (or a mission), knowledge (self-confidence) and action (go-power). If you leave one of the three out, you’re not going to get very

far. The Retirement Guys have adopted this formula as a guide to what we do in order to be at our best when it comes to retirement planning for our clients. Our mission is to educate all Americans on how to be financially independent in retirement. To us, the retirement phase should be one of the best times of life. If you think about your life, perhaps CLAIR there have been many BAKER good times: Growing up, going to high school, going to college, starting a family, etc. I bet there were also times of struggle. Working hard not knowing if you were going to make it, sacrificing to put food on the table for your family, etc. If you know me (Mark), you know that I like to have fun and believe in not waiting around to go out and experience the good parts of life. So, it is important to us to help those we work with to do the same. That is where we get back to three. When we thought about the key areas of planning that would lead to a happy and peaceful retirement, we came up with three. We call it “The Retirement Guys Road Map to Success.” 1. Manage Your Money, 2. Protect Your Assets, 3. Efficiently Plan Your Estate. Let’s break it down a little. First we like to look at “what’s in it” for our clients. What can we do to make sure that you have enough financial resources to live out the rest of your life the way you want to? We look at investment planning, tax planning, income planning, etc. Second, if we have done a good job on No. 1, how can we protect your assets from a crisis that could severely damage your nest egg or cause it to run out? We look at ways to protect against an expensive health care crisis or loss of income from the premature death of a spouse. Last, if we do a good job on No. 1 and No. 2, this translates into benefits for your loved ones if you don’t need all the benefits for yourself. How then can we pass on what is left over in a cost-efficient, time-efficient way? There you have three key ingredients to success.

Just as Dock David Treece wrote in “Localizing investments” last week, investors have begun to shy away from getting back into equities. This could be due to a number of factors, but our analysis is that there is a perceived risk to investing right now due to international conflicts and the lack of sound fiscal policies coming from Capitol Hill. Following 2008, investors want nothing but a little bit of security and some sort of confidence when it comes to putting their money back into the markets. Unfortunately, those pushing fiscal policies on a national level have given investors absolutely nothing to feel confident about.

Real budget advice from a real spender

O

nly a few people know that my husband calls me “The Auditor.” I closely monitor our budget and track our spending. I have been known to question the necessity of his repeated visits to Fricker’s and BW3. He has questioned the wisdom of my need for a yearly vacation. While I am generally fiscally responsible, it seems like my best-made budgets are sometimes riddled with emergencies (ER visit for a kidney Brandi BARHITE stone) or splurges (a Tempur-Pedic mattress). Meghan French, spokeswoman with the American Bankers Association said ABA promotes three tips for staying on budget: O Put your spending plan in writing and stick with it. O Track daily spending habits, including trips to the vending machine, and add up everything you buy. Try to do it for at least one month. You may be surprised how much you are spending on little things. O Review actual expenses at the end of each month. Note where you overspent and make adjustments. While all of ABA’s tips are helpful, I like specifics. For two years I have been following a plan crafted by evaluating my spending habits. These tips have allowed me to put money into retirement and savings and, most importantly, stay somewhat on budget (it’s not a perfect science.) O Food and gas: I get paid once per month from my full-time job at a local university so I need to be careful not to blow it in one week. Every month, I buy gas and grocery gift cards loaded with enough money for four to five weeks. This ensures that if I overspend elsewhere, I will still have food and gasoline. O Haircut and gifts: Every month, I set aside money for a haircut (this can be expensive for a woman) and gifts. O Home improvements: The income tax refund is the home improvement fund. I try to do one improvement each year. This year, I used the refund to make over the family room. Next year, the landscaping is on deck. Even though other parts of the house need work, I only do one thing each year. Yes, I really want to replace my cracked kitchen counter, but I also know that home improvements are continual, and I will truly never be done so I might as well pace myself. The best financial advice is advice you can keep. O Sincerely, The Auditor

Tai chi healing expert to visit Toledo Sept. 28-29 By Jay Hathaway

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

A global leader in the art of tai chi for healing will appear in Toledo for a two-day workshop. Dr. Paul Lam will be the featured guest at the “Explore the Depth of Tai Chi for Arthritis” workshop, set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 28-29. The workshop will be held at the Lodge at Strawberry Acres, 950 S. McCord Road, in Holland. Lam is a family physician and tai chi master living in Sydney, Australia. He suffered from arthritis from a very young age, due to malnourishment growing up in China, and began learning tai chi, a Chinese exercise focused on balance and slow movements, in the 1970s.

n this modern world, it is incumbent upon us to expand our horizons. To be accepting of those who are different from us. To try new things ourselves. And in the past few years, I’ve dabbled in something a little new. Something that’s not exactly accepted by society as a whole, but has its place in the world. I wouldn’t say that I’m fully on board, but I see the appeal. Of course, I’m talking about soccer. I’m not the only one, either. On Sept. 10, a high-profile World Cup qualifier game was played down in Columbus between the United States and Mexico. Not only did 25,000 fans descend on Crew Stadium to cheer on the Americans in their 2-0 win, but the game drew a 1.9 rating on television. Not earth-shattering numbers, but respectable — and a lot more than people give it credit for. (For the record, on that same night, only 12,000 went through the

His “Tai Chi for Health” program is also recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Administration on Aging. Becky Rahe is a co-host and coordinator of the workshop, with Julie Oberhaus. Rahe described the event as a workshop for instructors and students who are familiar with Lam’s program. “This is a ‘depth workshop’ — it’s for [Lam] to take us a little bit deeper,” Rahe said. “It’s not just for instructors; it’s for anyone who knows the form.” She said there are essential principles in tai chi that may be added to the form to take it to a deeper level.

to Massachusetts. She is making a special trip back to Toledo to host the workshop with Rahe. “We got in touch with his manager in Australia and we set the date, found a venue and we’ve been working toward this ever since,” Oberhaus said. About 60 participants have already committed to attend the workshop, including three master trainers and five senior trainers. Oberhaus said that to get involved with tai chi, a good starting point would be checking in on a local class or instructor, or watching video sessions posted online. However, she said it is best to share the experience with others. Rahe said those interested in attending may visit Lam’s website, www.taichiproductions.com. The cost is $350 for both days. O

SION SINCE THE CHEVY CHASE SHOW” as everyone seems to think it is. It’s played very similarly to hockey, both in rules and in strategy. I can appreciate that the game doesn’t have a whole lot of downtime. I can admire the level of athleticism needed to run up and down a field for 90 minutes. And at the end of the day, a sport is a sport, right? Those EPL games are played around 10 a.m. Eastern time; what’s wrong with watching that on a Sunday morning before gorging on NFL action? Not a thing. So why is there this urge for redblooded Americans to react almost violently to the mere mention of soccer? Why do we sneer and shout it down? Is it because soccer fans love to throw that “It’s the world’s most popular sport” thing in everyone’s faces? Is it because we all played soccer when we were kids, and then “grew up” enough to play football? Is it because of all the stories about

In this country, soccer’s not going to beat football, basketball, baseball, hockey or even stock car racing. But this country is producing quality players, and they’re competing at the highest level. People are finding ways to tune in, and broadcasters are paying good money to bring it to them. The fanbase exists. I’m not saying you have to like it, but at this point, you have to respect it.

By David Yonke

EDITOR, TOLEDOFAVS.COM David.Yonke@ReligionNews.com

After 47 years and hundreds of thousands of hours of airtime, Toledo’s longest-operating Christian radio station has a new sound, a new name and a new vibe. WPOS-FM (102.3), based in Holland, has been rebranded Proclaim FM and is looking to draw more families and listeners in their 30s and 40s. It revealed its new format Sept. 9 and held a “ribbon-cutting” ceremony later that day at its headquarters on Angola Road. “We wanted to continue to take care of the current audience, but also start reaching families again,” said Craig Magrum, general manager. “So that’s what’s been driving a lot of the changes and the thought process about what is going on.” When the station first went on the air in 1966, it appealed to Christian audiences of all ages. But over the decades it has become increasingly identified with an older demographic that favors traditional Southern gospel quartets, such as The Cathedrals and The Kingsmen. Magrum, 37, said he has “just kept running into” the perception that WPOS is “the older Christian station.” Changing that image and appealing to broader audiences have been part of the mission since he started working at the 6,000-watt station in June 2012. While praying about whether to take the job as general manager, Magrum said he felt a need to ask the 12-member board of directors about their vision for the station’s future. “When I got to the interview, I didn’t even get to ask the question,” he said. “The board told me they realized that they needed to start reaching out to a younger audience.” To shake the stubborn perception that WPOS is for gray-haired listeners only, Magrum realized that major changes were necessary — including a new name and logo. “The call letters WPOS have always stood for ‘We Proclaim Our Savior,’” he said. “And I was just going through those words and the word ‘Proclaim’ just really jumped out at me.” He discussed it with the station’s one other full-time employee, program director Cliff Smithers, whose “eyes lit up,” Magrum said. The duo presented the idea to WPOS’ board last spring and the name change was approved unanimously. Smithers, who has been in radio

for 24 years and joined WPOS in March 2012, helped choose the station’s new playlist and is host of the afternoon drive-time program. The station is now playing songs by artists “from Casting Crowns to tobyMac, and everything in between,” Smithers said. Focus groups were consulted to hone the new playlist and to fine tune programming and teaching shows. Among the notable changes was dropping “Thru the Bible” with Dr. J. Vernon McGee and adding “Walk in the Word” with Dr. James MacDonald and “Family Talk” with Dr. James Dobson. Magrum and Smithers said Proclaim FM will continue to honor its heritage by playing traditional

Southern gospel music, but it is expanding its musical offerings to include contemporary southern gospel, adult contemporary Christian music, and contemporary praise and worship. Among the artists heard on the station are Jesus Culture, Third Day, Red Roots, Chris Tomlin, Sara Groves, Francesca Battistelli and MercyMe. With the target audience being families, programs such as the drama “Adventures in Odyssey” offer entertainment for children as well as their parents. Magrum made a point of saying that Proclaim FM is not competing with YES-FM (89.3 WYSZ), whose Christian rock sound draws a younger demographic. “Musically, we are not really aiming

for teenagers or 20-somethings, because YES-FM is dedicated to that and we respect that,” said Magrum, who worked at YES for eight years. “We’re partners in ministry, we’re not trying to compete with them. So we’re mostly going for middle-aged and older adults, but also reaching kids with programs.” He acknowledged, however, that Proclaim FM’s quest for Christian listeners in their 30s and 40s will pit the station against nationally syndicated station K-Love (broadcast locally on 96.9 FM WNKL). It was listeners in that age range who helped WPOS get started when the station first went on the air 47 years ago, he said. “It’s a David versus Goliath scenario, definitely,” Magrum said of

competing with K-Love. He is confident, however, that even though K-Love is a national station with a big budget and a polished presentation, local Christians will want to support local Christian radio. “We know the church community a lot more intimately. We know the pastors, we know the congregations. I think all of our staff grew up in this area, so, yeah, we would like the KLove listeners to come back to Proclaim FM,” Magrum said.

New Ohio law may close exotic animal refuge in Stony Ridge By Kevin Moore

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

Kenny Hetrick, owner of Tiger Ridge Exotics in Stony Ridge, has operated an exotic animal shelter

and rescue facility from his home for 38 years. Home to bears, wolves and a wide array of big cats, Tiger Ridge is now subject to new state legislation that its owner says unfairly targets him. In October 2011, Terry Thompson,

owner of Muskingum County Exotic Animal Farm in Zanesville, Ohio, released 56 exotic animals before committing suicide. Of the 56 released animals, 48 were killed by law enforcement. The incident prompted state legislators to revisit the issue of

John Kasich on June 5, 2012, and the governor released a statement calling it “a real model for the rest of America about how to do this in a reasonable way.” The Ohio Dangerous Wild Animal Act, which goes into effect Jan. 1, 2014, states that “no person shall possess a dangerous wild animal [or] ... acquire, buy, sell, trade, or transfer possession or ownership of a dangerous wild animal” with the exception of a few specified groups, such as members of the Zoological Association of America, accredited research facilities and circuses. Under the new law, exotic animal sanctuaries and rescue facilities like Tiger Ridge Exotics may continue their activities if they register for a permit from the Ohio Director of Agriculture and comply with all facility regulations. The Akron Beacon Journal reports that more than 150 exotic animal owners have registered animals in preparation for the new requirement. “There is so much regulation in this new law,” said Hetrick, who runs Tiger Ridge with his family. “We have to put ID microchips in all my animals to register them with the state and get them neutered. We have 25 year-old lions; they won’t survive being tranquilized for that. I did that with my grizzly bear, and she died two days later. We have to install dig barriers (lions don’t dig, by the way), carry $1 million in insurance and even though this is a rescue facility taking in the animals confiscated from someone else, we still have to pay a permit fee.” The law stipulates that a “wildlife shelter” pay a permit fee of $1,000 if it has more than 15 animals plus $125 for each additional animal. Tiger Ridge has about 30 exotic animals. Exotic animal sanctuaries like Tiger Ridge are already regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and Hetrick, a former law enforcement officer, maintains he is very responsible with his animals and that his shelter is regularly inspected and approved by the federal government. “It’s not as if there have been no laws on the books. The USDA inspectors come in unannounced three or four times a year and they look at the animals, examine their food, check their veterinary records and inspect my fencing. They even thoroughly search my house. We have a great record with the feds: No one’s ever been bit, and no animal has ever gotten loose.” Tiger Ridge, which operates on a donation basis, recently made several updates to its facilities with the aid

of teams of volunteers, including the addition of 4-foot inward-facing overhangs to its big cat cages, in order to comply with changes in USDA regulations. But Hetrick insists the requirements of the new state law are excessive and needlessly go beyond federal regulations. For example, he said, a new requirement states that the mesh of the cage’s overhangs and the chain link that makes up the fence be of the same specified grade. “They know most small places can’t afford these things. They want all the private zoos closed,” he said. “It’s not fair they won’t make us exempt or grandfather us in.” Hetrick’s daughter, Corinna, also believes the Ohio law unfairly targets small, private exotic animal facilities. “Exemptions exist in the law,” she said. “The Toledo Zoo gets an exemption for being a member of the Zoological Association, but our USDA requirements are the same as thiers. We shouldn’t be treated differently just because we’re not a multimillion dollar business or getting taxpayer money. The animals in Zanesville didn’t figure out how to escape, dig their way out or jump fences. They were set loose. Now we’re being lumped in the same group as [Thompson] and these excessive rules single out places like ours.” Perhaps most disturbing for Hetrick and his family is the creation of a $2.9 million containment facility in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, designed to temporarily house exotic animals seized from owners not in compliance with the new law. The high-security facility is equipped with cameras, electric fences and a double wall around the building’s perimeter. “It’s a prison for these animals, a penitentiary really,” Hetrick said. The Associated Press reported that the facility, which opened in March and has already started receiving some confiscated animals, has been the target of much criticism for feeding some of the animals “junk food” like pizza and Mountain Dew. A spokesperson for Ohio Department of Agriculture, however, said the animals were already accustomed to human food and needed to be weaned off it to a more nutritious diet. The Ohio Dangerous Wild Animal Act, which was supported by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Humane Society, is currently under review with Sixth District Court of Appeals in Cincinnati after the Ohio Association of Animal Owners filed an appeal following U.S. District Judge George Smith’s decision to uphold the law last year.

Make Second Chance Park for Baby Elaina

Give this text stating, “Coroner neighborhood a chance confirms human reto show the same charmains found in box.” I acter it did when it had came to a logical came together and unconclusion in June that selfishly searched every “Baby Elaina” Steinfurth day for this missing was probably dead. I am baby, a child many had a glass-half-full kind of Jeremy BAUMHOWER never met. Build a park guy, so I was holding on to a glimmer of hope that it was a cus- that each resident will protect the very tody thing; maybe she was alive, pos- way they tried to protect Elaina. Give sibly staying with a distant relative or them a reminder of what they did on that block and in that community’s friend. It looks like I was wrong. Evil hap- darkest hour. Replace the sounds pened. We now know the ugly truth. of prayer vigils, bickering amongst neighbors and TV interviews with the Elaina’s life ended too soon. Officials reportedly found her sounds of children playing. For those of you wondering how we in a box in the detached garage behind the home where Steven W. King can make this happen, there are a couple (Elaina’s mom Angela Steinfurth’s ex- of ways. The prosecutor in Cuyahoga boyfriend) and his family reside. This County struck a deal in the plea agreeresidence has been the centerpiece of ment with Ariel Castro that immediately countless search parties, prayer vigils gave the county power to raze the house and national media attention. This where he kept three women captive for home, with its feces-covered floors and a decade. Lucas County prosecutors can that stained mattress, is now burned broker a similar deal with the Kings, esinto the permanent memory of ev- pecially considering how much obstruceryone who has seen that video. I do tion the authorities have dealt with. According to AREIS, the family not live on that street or in that neighborhood, but I am tired of looking at is already $7,377 behind on property that run-down property. I’m tired of taxes. Taxes are currently set at $508 annually, which means they are apseeing people sitting on that porch. The house and garage need to go proximately 14 years behind. This gives as soon as possible. We as a commu- a couple of different options right away. Elected officials and lawyers can nity need not be reminded of the evil that took place behind those walls. We be very effective at a time like this, but need to tear down this house. We as it will take the same financial support Toledoans need to raze 704 Federal St. that the community showed when In its place, where this baby likely Elaina first disappeared to make this took her last breath, let’s build the park a reality. I am willing to spearhead

an online campaign, via Crowdtilt, to collect the money needed to both raze this property and build an amazing park. I will lobby every department of government looking for matching dollars and whatever other resources are needed, but I’ll need your help. Would you be willing to give as little

as $1 to tear down an epicenter of evil and replace it with a symbol of Toledo’s humanity? This family and this neighborhood have suffered enough, have cried enough and have seen this house more than enough. With your help and with your

voice, we can forever remember Elaina smiling, a memory that can be fulfilled with the smiles of other children going down a curvy slide, holding a parent’s hand and playing at a park. O Find Jeremy Baumhower on Facebook or Twitter @jeremytheproduc.

SEPT. 15 – 21, 2013 Events: Full Moon in Pisces (19th)

By Elizabeth Hazel Aries (March 21-April 19)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Just when the worst seems imminent, you’re rocked and socked from all directions. A lot of unexpected, unanticipated things happen because of other people. A new set of promising circumstances locks into place. Take it seriously as others expect quality participation from you.

You’re besieged by messages as the week begins. Things you’ve been saying for months or years are finally starting to sink in or have results. Karmic birds come home to roost. After Wednesday, you gain clarity about your needs, desires, hopes, and the roles others play in this.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

The deeper you dig and the more inner truths you see and accept, the greater your progress. Yielding control contradicts every instinct; but by doing this, you’ll attain necessary goals and desires. Powerful karmic forces are at work – let them flow without a struggle.

September highlights endings, releases, and turn-overs. Mysterious forces are at work. As one door closes, another opens. Very odd scenes are played out by others in the wings. Gains and losses can be simultaneous or sequential. Relax in time-honored comfort zones.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Wildly potent and fertile forces are operating around you. Great transformations are at hand, but are beneath the surface or invisible. Health and wellness changes have sticking power. It’s easier to embrace intentions without backsliding. Focus on process, not results.

Live the paradox: accepting responsibilities can set you free. Relationship roles are reversed or revised. Property or money matters are transformed beyond expectations; results may catch you off guard. Look for perfect teammates or working partners; establish lasting ties.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Subliminal, creeping changes that have taken place over the past year begin to unfold in the light of awareness. This may bring changes in relationships, partnerships and in your personal focus. Don’t get sidetracked by trivialities midweek. Highest priorities rule.

A chapter in your life is complete. Regular seasonal activities may be irrelevant. Reconnect with family and friends for new activities. The shape of your life is transforming; select worthwhile goals and groups. New powers are within your grasp if you are willing.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Conversations and interactions are highly energized this week. Dramatic changes are afoot and people hit the ground running. Someone gives you an entirely different viewpoint of your value and importance. Influence circulates as past words and deeds shape present choices.

Waves of excitement arrive as the week begins. Friends and partners race toward new activities and interests. Some areas of focus are at an end or dwindling. This is a good time to look for ways to acquire new skills. Tangential talents may become major income sources.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Seeds for the future are being planted. Past experience can be recycled as nourishment for emerging opportunities. Long-term commitments cement mutual interests in partnerships and relationships. Reclaim your power of selfdetermination and choose worthy, realistic goals.

A personal or financial hurdle is conquered. Knowledge of people and groups and their history becomes very valuable. Go where you are needed on Wednesday; your presence serves a deeper purpose than may be immediately apparent, but supports the big long-term picture.

Elizabeth Hazel is a professional tarotist-astrologer and author. She gives readings every Wednesday at Attic on Adams above Manos Greek Restaurant. She may be contacted at ehazel@buckeye-express.com (c) 2013

CARLSON’S CRITTERS

A home for Frank, Sammy Frank is a 7-month-old male orange longhair. He was found wandering the neighborhood searching for food and was brought into the Toledo Area Humane Society so that he could find a new home. Frank is a beautiful boy with a loving personality. He is extremely affectionate and likes to cuddle on your shoulder and purr in your ear. Frank is still just a kitten and loves to play with toys. He needs an owner who won’t mind giving him all of the attention that he is going to demand. Frank is outgoing and has no trouble adapting to new situations. He gets along well with other cats and may even tolerate a calm, cat friendly dog. Frank will make a great companion for any family. Just offer him a little love and he will return the affection tenfold. Frank has been neutered, examined by a TAHS staff veterinarian, is current on his vaccinations, and is microchipped. Sammy is a 1-year-old female Akita and Boxer mix. Her owners brought her into the Toledo Area Humane Society to find a new home because they did not have time to spend with an energetic dog. Sammy has been around children of all ages. If she is not given enough exercise, she becomes very bouncy and may be too much for young children to tolerate. Sammy loves to play and will be happiest in a home where there are plenty of people for her to spend time with. She is smart and eager to please. The volunteers say she is wonderful when leash walking and they adore her gentle and sweet
