Publisher’s statement

Round of applause

T

here are a number of annual events Toledo Free Press is proud to support, but one stands out for me each year — The Entrepreneurial & Business Excellence (EBE) Hall of Fame ceremony. Formed in 2006, the EBE recognizes, according its website, “outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders who have built and sustained growing businesses and created jobs in the region. EBE also applauds established and fledgling businesses that display technological innovation in their respective industry. The program was formed as a result of a recognized need to foster and honor entrepreneurial success and business excellence in our region and is anticipating more than 700 attendees this year.” This year, six local companies will be inducted during the annual ceremony on Nov. 8 at The Pinnacle in Maumee: O Business Excellence Awards go to Burkett Restaurant Equipment, Clouse Thomas F. Pounds Construction Corp., NovaVision, Inc. and Riker Products. O The Excellence in Family Business Award goes to Mel Lanzer Company. O The Excellence in Startup Innovation Idea Award goes to Solar Spectrum, LLC. Adam Davenport, EBE chairman, said, “In what some say is a struggling economy in our region, we continue to honor companies that are going against all odds and are achieving high levels of success in both sales and also the creation and retention of many employees. “The support of so many businesses, organizations and past Hall of Fame honorees is what truly makes this program successful year after year, and I don’t expect that to ever stop. It proves that if events are put on to show the positive aspects of our area, great successes can be identified and celebrated.” The 2012 Entrepreneurial and Business Excellence Hall of Fame is presented by The University of Toledo and is founded by Gorillas & Gazelles LLC in partnership with Bowling Green State University, Davenport, Hanf & Company, LLC and Medical Mutual of Ohio/ BDS Agency Management. Additional primary sponsors include UT Innovation Enterprises, UT College of Business Administration and The Center for Family and Privately Held Business. Toledo Free Press is proud to be the event’s media sponsor and, as a 2008 honoree, can attest to the honor the EBE bestows. Visit the EBE website at www.ebehof.com for further information about event tickets and sponsorship opportunities. Join us in applauding this year’s recipients and celebrating their contributions to our community. O Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

BACK TO BASICS

Relearn and return

I

n this heated election season, many politicians are telling you what the main cause of our nation’s problems is. We hear concerns of a federal government spending problem that gives drunken sailors a bad name. Someone else will offer up a concern of federal revenue or someone not paying their fair share. While these answers focus on the frightening economic conditions we find ourselves in, they often miss a larger debate: that of God-given freedom and liberty, or state control. The forefathers who came to this continent did so with a clearly established goal. The Mayflower Compact reads, “in Robert the name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten … by the grace of God … defender of Faith; having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith … a voyage to plant the first colony… do by these present, and in the presence of God, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic.” Apparently the forefathers had not attended public education where they would be taught of “separation of church and state.” Our nation’s Founding Fathers carried this vision forward throughout our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. The italics are mine.

Declaration of Independence

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them ... “We hold these truths to be selfevident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights … “… and for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

The U.S. Constitution “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish the Constitution for the United States of America.” Like so much of our nation’s history, we have forgotten where we

have come from. We have ignored the lessons of the past and we have stood by as the principles that were fought and paid for with blood have been twisted or ignored. The forefathers who came to this continent did so to maximize the freedoms they recognized as coming from God. Our Founding Fathers fought a war with the most advanced and feared army and navy the world had ever seen. They won and secured that freedom not only for themselves, but for future generations. It is our duty, it is our solemn obligation to carry on these principles. The DENSIC book of Revelation warns us “Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.” (Rev 2:5). As Joshua was taking the nation of Israel to the Promised Land, representatives from the twelve tribes carried stones from the river bed of the Jordan River to create a memorial — so that future generations would learn and return to the ways of God-given freedom. On Sept. 17, we celebrated the 225th anniversary of our Constitution. If we are to restore our nation, we must take up the burden of remembering the past, relearning the principles and returning to them. We can become in the words of Samuel Adams “the tireless, irate minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men!” Here are 10 steps you can take to save the Constitution, created by Julia Shaw of The Heritage Foundation. 1. Read it. 2. Understand it (with your family). 3. Teach it. Start a Constitution study group. 4. Learn about the men who created it. Study the Founding Fathers. 5 Discover the fundamental principles behind it. Read a book. 6. Share what you know in your local community, over the backyard fence or on the front porch. 7. Spread the word. Talk to others. 8. Arm yourselves for debate. Read, read and read some more. Find original source documents. 9. Shore up the American dream. Resist the vast expansion of the federal government. 10. Commit to it. Work to strengthen your family, your church and your community. O Email Robert Densic at letters@toledo freepress.com.

GOING GLOBAL

E

It’s official: UT has a global strategy

veryone who knows the University of Toledo knows it has a long and distinguished history of attracting international students. There were even times when UT was seen as a leader among universities seeking to attract such students. The university continues to be popular for students looking for an American university experience. Today, however, being recognized as a globally engaged university entails much more than attracting large numbers of international students. Global engagement means student studyabroad programs, student and faculty exchange programs with international universities, international collaborative research projects and programs, meaningful, productive partnerships with like-minded international universities and purposeful cooperation on other fronts, including business and economic development, promotion of foreign direct investment and, most importantly, advancing our understanding of other nations and cultures. Today, all major universities must be strategically engaged internation-

For

the moment, however, UT’s focus will be “narrower and deeper” partnerships that produce measurable outcomes and regional benefits. To help ensure the successful implementation of this strategic plan, the university is establishing the President’s Commission on Global Initiatives. This commission, comprised of representatives from across the university together with community representatives, will study global opportunities, assess costs and benefits and recommend programs and projects to help make UT a globally recognized university and attract increased international attention to Toledo and Northwest Ohio. Globalization of a university is a long-term venture; years of intense work by faculty, deans and senior administrators will be required to reap the enhanced benefits of global engagement for our students, faculty and community. For UT, these efforts will focus on building productive, sustainable partnerships with strategically selected international universities. It is our expectation that these partnerships will provide

mutual benefits to both partners and elevate the visibility and reputation of UT as well as our City of Toledo. For these high expectations to become reality, UT’s global strategy must be aligned with the strategies of others in our city and region engaged in international relationship-building. This includes such offices as the mayor’s and organizations such as the Regional Growth Partnership. We have made an excellent start, but we will also need to continue to broaden and strengthen our efforts to ensure we are working in concert and collaboratively. Working together, pursuing common international objectives and maintaining aligned strategies will produce positive educational outcomes for our students and economic benefits for our city, region and state.

FUNDRAISER

By Vicki L. Kroll

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER vkroll@toledofreepresscom

Kaylee Halko’s enthusiasm to meet the winged wonders at the Butterfly House was obvious when she arrived. But the 9-year-old was polite; she greeted Carly Kudzia and showed the 2-year-old some moths eating a banana. Then Kaylee stood still with outstretched arms and said, “I’m standing right here: Land on me!” With butterflies and moths flitting around, she cracked, “Do they not like small people or something? Seriously?” While Carly happily trotted around, Kaylee’s eagerness — and impatience — grew. “I don’t bite,” she told the flying insects. Not exactly the butterfly whisperer. With the help of Carly’s brother, Garrett, Kaylee soon had two paper kite butterflies perched on her hands. Meanwhile, Carly was watching koi in a pond. Then the outgoing girl climbed up on a bench and sat next to a young boy, who didn’t know what to think. “She’s such a flirt,” joked Heather Kudzia, Carly’s mom. Kaylee and Carly have a lot in common with the butterflies. They’re beautiful and delicate. They’re colorful characters who make people smile. And right now, they have a short life expectancy. The two girls are among 96 children in the world who have progeria, a rapid-aging disease. Kaylee lives in Monclova Township, just minutes away from Carly in Whitehouse. “It certainly is a coincidence to have them so close considering there are only 22 for the entire U.S. population,” said Audrey Gordon, president and executive director of the Progeria Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering treatments and a cure for the fatal genetic condition. “The fact that this disease is so rare in the world and we have two girls in the area, maybe they’re here to help and support each other,” said Duke Wheeler, co-owner of Wheeler Farms and the Butterfly House in Whitehouse. “It helps because they’re close. Kaylee loves the fact that Carly lives nearby,” said Marla Halko, Kaylee’s mom. “[Progeria] is a hard disease, and I’m glad that the community supports

Kaylee and accepts her differences,” she said. “It’s just great that people want to get involved and try to help us fight this disease.” Wheeler is one of those offering assistance. He donated the Butterfly House’s Sept. 8 proceeds, totaling $1,000, to the Progeria Research Foundation. “It’s kind of tough to raise money for a rare disease nobody really knows about,” said Ryan Kudzia, Carly’s dad. Both families are holding fundraisers to help pay for a new drug trial that will be conducted by the Progeria Research Foundation. Studies have shown rapamycin may be a possible treatment. The drug decreased the disease-causing protein progerin by 50 percent in mice, according to a 2011 study published in Science Translational Medicine. “We’re really excited about that possibility, of the drugs transferring over from helping cells in animal models to the children,” Gordon said. “We’re excited for the children, and we’re excited for the families — there’s really true hope now.” She estimated the cost for the new study at $5 million. “When Carly was diagnosed (in April 2011), the second drug trial was well under way; it was too late for her to participate,” Heather said. “The third drug trial we think is being finalized right now.” Kaylee is participating in the current trial. “She’s healthy. We haven’t had any issues,” Marla said. “The Progeria Research Foundation is actually working on prolonging the second trial so the children don’t have to go off the medication while they’re trying to work with the Food and Drug Administration [on the new trial].” The waiting is hard. “What are we doing? We’re just sitting around getting old! I can’t stand it! Get me the medicine! Everyone is feeling that, I’m sure,” Heather said. In the meantime, Kaylee and Carly are staying busy. “Kaylee’s taking jazz and tap dancing now,” Marla said. “She loves tap. She’ll come home from school and put the shoes on and tap around just because she loves the sound.” “She’s also taking karate and is an orange belt,” said Tim Halko, her dad. “Carly’s into ‘Curious George’ videos. She’s got her own pink iPod; she’s really into that and videos and pictures,” Ryan said. “She’s just an allaround happy little girl.” “We’re lucky that people recognize

Kaylee. They know about progeria. They know it’s something not to be scared of. They wave; they’re friendly,” Heather said. “We don’t want to shy away from the fact that Carly has progeria; we want to tell the whole world, see if they can help. And when you recognize Carly, you don’t wonder, but instead you wave or smile.” A fundraiser, Carly’s Party for the Cure, is set for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Pinnacle, 1772 Indian Wood Circle, in Maumee. This is the second year for the fundraiser, which will feature about 50 raffle and auction baskets, appetizers, a cash bar and music by Alter Ego. Tickets for the 21-and-older event are $25 and are available online at teamCarlyQ.com/events. The 2011 party raised $26,000 for the Progeria Research Foundation. “We had over 400 people last year at the event, so we’re hoping to at least have 400 this year at the Pinnacle and maybe more,” Ryan said. “It’s kind of overwhelming to feel all of that love coming toward our family and toward Carly,” Heather said. “I definitely feel lifted up and that we are not alone.” Kaylee’s Course, the seventh annual race for progeria research, will take place Oct. 13 at Monclova Primary School, 8035 Monclova Road.

carly kudzia of whitehouse is one of 96 kids with progeria worldwide.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. The race starts at 10 a.m. Cost is $12 before Oct. 1 and $15 after for the 5K run/2mile walk. Children 10 and younger are free. There will also be a silent auction and raffle. Proceeds will go to the Progeria Research Foundation. See details at sweetkaylee.com and on Facebook at groups.to/ sweetkaylee.

RxMap 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.

Toledo City Council members have two options when they miss a meeting: either have their pay docked or get an “excusal” from the other members. Being excused is common practice. Only two of the 12 members have taken pay deductions in 2012. Council members can deduct 2 percent from their annual salaries for missing a regular meeting and 1 percent for missing a committee meeting. But most opt for the other route — if two-thirds of Council votes for an excusal, the absent member still gets paid.

RxMap can help if:

So far in 2012, Council has not voted down any excusals. “In my 14 years, no one has not been excused,” said Council clerk Jerry Dendinger. Members do not have to give a reason to get excused. Councilmen Phil Copeland and Tom Waniewski are the only two members who have taken pay deferments this year. As of Sept. 7, Copeland has had 18 absences, including one regular meeting. He took deferments for 13 committee meetings and one special Council meeting, amounting to $4,125. Waniewski has had four absences in 2012, all from committee meetings, with one being excused and three others being deferred, amounting to an

$825 deduction in his pay. Waniewski and Copeland were also the only two to defer last year. In 2011, Copeland deferred $7,700 and missed 29 meetings, including four regular meetings and one special meeting. Of those, he had two regular meetings and COPELAND two committee meetings excused. Waniewski deferred $4,125, accounting for 15 committee meetings. He had one excused WANIEWSKI absence for a committee meeting. So far in 2012, President Joe McNamara has had perfect attendance. Lindsay Webb had the most excusals with 16, including two regular meetings and one special meeting, followed by Mike Craig with 13 missed committee meetings and Adam Martinez with 11, including one special meeting and two regular meetings. For committee meeting excusals, Rob Ludeman had one, George Sarantou had two, Steve Steel had three, Tyrone Riley had three and D. Michael Collins had four. Paula Hicks-Hudson had five excusals for committee meetings and one for a regular meeting. The absences, had they not been excused, would amount

to about $20,000 in deferments. Nonpresidential Council members make $27,501.76 per year. The president makes $32,000.80 per year. In 2011, Webb and Martinez had the most absences at 19 each, including three regular meetings and two special meetings for Webb and two regular meetings and one special meeting for Martinez. Attendance is personally important to McNamara. In 2011, he missed three committee meetings. “I’m elected to go to meetings. That’s the point of Council and I take it seriously and that’s why I try to plan my life around meetings,” he said. However, McNamara said it is routine to excuse people. “City Council is a part-time job and people do have other things going on in their lives. I do think that allowing for people to miss some meetings is reasonable, but the important thing is that we have enough members so we’re able to have a quorum,” McNamara said. Having enough members for quorum hasn’t been an issue in his tenure, he added. In 2012, Waniewski has taken just one excusal for an agenda review Aug. 21 as a “vacation.” He said it’s his usual policy to take a deduction for any missed meetings. “I feel so strongly about doing your job, particularly when there’s legislation that affects people. There’s zoning issues that affect businesses and you’ve gotta show up for the job in order to get paid for it,” he said. n COUNCIL CONTINUES ON A8

n COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM A7 He said many members like himself have other jobs and family emergencies or illnesses do arise. However, Waniewski said, “Maybe what we need to do before we excuse [members] is ask what their excuse is.” Still, Waniewski said he doesn’t see himself voting down MARTINEZ someone’s excusal. “It’s on an individual’s conscience to decide whether they should excuse themselves, so I don’t see myself objecting,” he said. Waniewski praised McNAMARA

McNamara for his scheduling abilities and also said this Council has been better about attendance than those in past years. Craig said he gen- SARANTOU erally doesn’t skip regular meetings, but sometimes misses committee meetings if he has other Council business or a prior arrangement. “You may only WEBB have a day or two or maybe three notice and if I already have something scheduled, I go and do what I have scheduled,” he said. Craig also said committee meetings are sometimes called for Council members who have questions he may not need answered. “Why would I go to a meeting that’s unnecessary for me and why would I take that away from my pay if I’ve done my homework?” he said. Committee meetings are also recorded and can be listened to later, he added. Copeland, who is running for Lucas County recorder against Sarantou, had the most absences and the most deferments. He said he wasn’t sure of the total number of meetings he missed, but that his job at Laborers’ Local 500 often takes him away from home. Copeland is out of town for work on the third Thursday of every month. “A lot of times I’m out for work and I didn’t feel I should be paid for meetings [if] I wasn’t there,” he said. The times he took excusals were for reasons like sickness, he added. Webb said some of her absences in recent years could be attributed to maternity leave and raising a family. She gave birth in both 2010 and 2011. “The people I represent appre-

ciate the fact that I’m a hardworking mom and I have a full-time job. City Council is considered part time and I have a large family and I keep all the balls in the air,” she said. Webb also said her voice as a working mom is “essential” to Council. “I earn my paycheck in a number of different ways,” Webb said, adding that she listens to recordings of missed committee meetings and gets notes from other members. She is also a coordinator for the National Employment Law Project in Ann Arbor. Martinez said he missed a number of meetings because of his position as an adjunct teacher at Owens Community College and because of a master’s program in Cleveland that he commuted to. “Most of us do have our other jobs that may not be as flexible,” Martinez said. He added that he has taken pay deferments in the past if he took a vacation or didn’t have a reasonable excuse for being absent. “There’s always an opportunity to go online and listen to the conversations that have been held,” he added. Martinez said he also checks with committee chairs to make sure there aren’t any impending issues in the case of an absence. McNamara emphasized that attendance of regular City Council meetings is more important than committee meetings. “Members can better plan their schedules around Council meetings,” he said, adding that committee meetings can be at the “whim” of the chair. Copeland said of Sarantou, his opponent and chair of the finance committee, “He schedules [finance committee meetings] when it fits him. That’s the thing.” Sarantou said he has scheduled three finance committee meetings on the third Thursday of the month to accommodate other people who needed to be there. The rest have been on other days, he said. “I will match my attendance records with [Copeland’s] attendance records any day,” Sarantou said. “The fact of the matter is he’s missed a huge amount of meetings.” “If you’re gonna miss that many meetings, why should you get paid?” Sarantou said. He asked how voters should trust Copeland would show up at the recorder’s office if elected. If elected, Copeland said he plans to be a “full-time recorder.” Sarantou also pledged to be there every day. In 2011, Sarantou missed 12 meetings, including one special meeting. Copeland said he doesn’t keep track of Sarantou’s attendance. “When I’m there, I’m there to try to get the work done for the City of Toledo,” he said. O

European Auto Show at Vin Devers Sept. 23

By Yaneek Smith

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

If you’d like to enjoy a leisurely Sunday observing some of the world’s finest and most pristine automobiles, head to the Third Annual European Auto Show at Vin Devers Autohaus of Sylvania on Sept. 23. Ferraris? Check. Bentleys? Check. Porsches? Check. Those will be just a few of the automobile models on display at the show, said Jason Perry, Vin Devers general manager. The event will take place 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the dealership, 5570 Monroe St., and will feature automobiles from the U.K., Germany, France, Italy and Sweden. Registration, which runs from 9-11 a.m., costs $12. Awards will be handed out at 2 p.m. The event will also feature concessions and K100 (99.9 FM) will be broadcasting on site. There will be a detail clinic and a tech clinic on site for the event, Perry said. Vin Devers Autohaus, an authorized franchise of Mercedes-Benz and Audi, has been in business since 1956 and underwent a $1.2 million renovation of its dealership early last year that gave it a new look. Franklin Park Lincoln-Mercury, formerly known as Vin Devers Lincoln-Mercury, is also part of the dealership family. Toledo resident Justin Lange,

who has attended the show in past years, is planning on attending again this weekend. “I’m really excited about the show,” said Lange, 28, a car enthusiast. “I like to compare the different styles of cars. I like to look at the older cars as well as the newer cars to see where the technology has moved over the years.” Lange, a married father of two, said he plans to take his kids. “It’s always nice to have something different to do, something outside the norm. I want to show them what Daddy could’ve had if they weren’t there,” Lange said, laughing. “You see a lot of cars you usually don’t get to see around this area that are really special and rare. European car companies are important because Europe, more than any other region, treats putting together a car like an art form. [The automobiles] are finely tuned machines. [The Europeans] put the beauty of the car almost above, or on par, with everything else. And European cars are very useful, too.” Now in its third year, the auto show has become more popular each year, Perry said. “The show was [initially] a groundfloor exploration that has turned into a sizable event sparked by our community’s enthusiasm for European flavors,” Perry said. “It’s gonna be a great year.” For more information, contact Perry at jperry@vindevers.com.

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

A three-mile obstacle course filled with slip ’n slides, mud pits and a cargonet climb? It’s all part of The Survival Race, coming to Toledo on Sept. 29. Taglined “The Original FamilyStyle 5K, Obstacle Course & Mud Run,” The Survival Race is a familyfriendly event featuring a 5K race filled with obstacles as part of a fun-filled day that usually ends with people covered in mud but having an enjoyable time, said Dean Del Prete. Del Prete, 48, is president of Cousins Management Group, a paintball company based in Medford, N.Y., that operates The Survival Race. He opened a paintball park in Toledo five years ago and chose the city as a destination for this event. The Survival Race has taken place in a number of other locations this season, among them Dallas, New Windsor, N.Y., Manchester, N.J., and Long Island, and finishes the season with the festivities in Toledo. Del Prete said Survival Race is growing in popularity.

“The first thing is, the race is really fun,” he said. “People get out there and have a good time. It’s more about completing the event than competing. The people range from the athletic to adventurous to the couch potato that wants to have fun. “[People] want to challenge themselves, they want to have fun, have a laugh. No one takes [the event] too serious. We don’t make the obstacles too challenging. Everything has a bail-out, so if you get sick doing the event, you can stop. It’s more about fun than anything else.” Del Prete will have a group of five to six employees on site helping to coordinate the event, and will rely on an assorted group of volunteers and workers to help the race run smoothly. The event, which takes place at 8721 Airport Hwy., in Holland, costs $60. Runners will leave in 30-minute waves between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration ends Sept. 26. Spectators are welcome. Del Prete said more than 1,800 applicants hailing from Columbus to Grand Rapids, Mich., have signed up and he expects that number to climb to roughly 2,200 by race day. He said the event helps

local businesses for the weekend. “The hotels and restaurants are gonna love it,” he said. “I hire local bands and a local brewer is going to be supplying beer. It’s gonna be great for business.” Del Prete is not only confident the event will be a success, but that it will grow in the years to come. In Dallas, 800 people showed up for the event in 2011 and the number grew to 2,700 this year, he said. Del Prete knows a thing or two about simple ideas growing from something minor into a successful industry and believes that, over time, the same will happen with events like Survival Race. “I was one of the pioneers with paintball,” Del Prete said. “I played [years ago] and I knew it would take off. And that’s what is happening with this mud race. This is a game-changer. With the [wideranging] demographics, the potential here is so much greater.” Although comparisons have been made between The Survival Race and Warrior Dash, and there are some similarities, Del Prete notes that his mud run is much more family friendly. “I didn’t want this to be like the Warrior Dash,” he said. “I wanted it to be

my own thing. I thought, ‘How do I differentiate myself? Why can’t I have the family race? Why can’t I be the 9-99 age group?’ It’s like the Warrior Dash, but their demographic is different. Theirs is more of the party animal and college crowd variety. Our course is easier and we’re more family oriented. That’s something that we

pride ourselves in. “We’re not gonna be the strongest, toughest event. ... We’re fun; we’re not fierce. It’s not perfect for everybody, but for us, it works.” For more information, details and pictures of previous races, visit thesurvivalrace.com or www.facebook.com/ TheSurvivalRace. O

Bernard Reedy hears it every day on his way to class. He hears it all the time around Toledo. He has even heard it a few times while pumping gas. As the University of Toledo junior wide receiver admits, there is simply no escaping the comparison between himself and former REEDY teammate Eric Page. “We both do similar things, so I just kind of laugh and smile when I hear it,” Reedy said with a grin. “It makes me feel good though because Eric is a great player.” From their reserved, soft-spoken demeanor, their shifty return moves and crisp route running, down to their stature — both are 5-foot-9 — the similarities are striking. In fact, Toledo head coach Matt Campbell, the pair’s offensive coordi-

nator from 2009-11, struggled to find any dissimilarities between the two. “Maybe the only difference is a little bit of speed,” Campbell said. “Bernard has that extra gear he can kick into.” Though Reedy saw action his freshman year (five catches for 32 yards and eight rushes for 35 yards and two touchdowns) he emerged as the complementary receiver to Page in 2011. The St. Petersburg, Fla., native finished second on the team behind UT’s all-time leading receiver with 40 catches, 758 yards and nine touchdowns, providing the one-two punch the Rockets lacked at receiver since Stephen Williams, now playing for the Arizona Cardinals, graduated in 2009. Reedy capped off his sophomore year with the best performance of his collegiate career, hauling in four passes for 126 yards and three touchdowns to garner MVP honors in Toledo’s 42-41 Military Bowl victory over Air Force. For a brief time after the bowl season, it appeared Reedy and Page would be the primary weapons for the

prohibitive favorite to win the MidAmerican Conference in 2012. In January, however, Page chose to forgo his senior year of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft and Reedy was thrust into the No. 1 wideout spot on the depth chart. Reedy said he is confident in his ability to fill the role and that has translated on the field by way of a team-high 19 receptions, 206 yards and a pair of touchdowns through three games this season. He credits his preparedness, in part, to Page for showing him the way. “He’s a hard worker. He does everything quietly, but he does everything right,” Reedy said. “Doing the small things right lets you do the big things right. That’s why he made so many big plays and had so much success here.” Reedy, unsurprisingly, has adopted Page’s lead-by-example approach as well. “I’ve never really been the vocal type,” Reedy said. “I just try to go out and do the right thing so the younger guys can follow me.” So far, so good.

The Other Side of the Coin One new client recently brought in his portfolio and showed it to me. He had accounts with three firms, and he had an online trading account. He had outperformed all three firms, even though he described himself as a “novice.” He wondered what my opinion was, but he wanted the answer in just one minute. I said: “There are at least ten major things which could happen soon that would cause downward pressure on the economy. I truly believe that at least half of those things actually will happen. Where you have done well, you know that you made your money investing in this way during an arguably delusional period of history. Things have changed, and you know that; that is why you are here. The problem is, your current plan offers absolutely no defense against downturn, as if it were still 1997. People are still misinformed on the whole risk thing.

Race for the Cure to honor two local women By Brigitta Burks

Toledo Free Press News Editor bburks@toledofreepress.com

Ingrid Bias was closing a window the night she felt something wrong with her breast tissue. “Of course, my heart sank because I knew something was seriously wrong,” said the associate minister at Abundant Life Baptist Church. Bias had a mammogram and biopsy and learned she had three tumors in her breasts. Within 30 days of her discovery in the summer of 2011, she had a double mastectomy, a second surgery BIAS and chemotherapy. Now in the summer of 2012, her annual MRI has come back clean, she’s on a vegetarian diet and she’s lost 25 pounds. She is also the “In Celebration” honoree for the 19th Annual Northwest STOUT Ohio Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The Sept. 30 race takes place Downtown and includes a Survivors Tent and Parade. The 5K run/walk earned the local Komen affiliate about $1 million last year. Most of that money goes to support grants in the 24-county area the affiliate serves and the rest goes to support research. The affiliate is aiming to have

20,000 participants at its Race for the Cure event this year. “The Race for the Cure is our primary way of raising revenue,” said Mary Westphal, executive director of the chapter. “It literally means saving lives in the fight against breast cancer right here locally in the community.” Bias said she is grateful to be the honoree this year, but it “leaves a bittersweet taste in your mouth.” “I pretty much went through hell to be the honoree,” she said. Much of Bias’ treatment was funded by grants from Komen to CareNet. “We have pretty much worked hand in hand since,” Bias said. “They are a rare group, I must say. Mary and those women talk to me like we’ve been friends for life.” One of the reasons Bias is passionate about Komen is its support of African-American women. AfricanAmerican women older than 40 in Northwest Ohio are diagnosed at a significantly lower rate than white women, but their mortality rate is nearly equal, according to Komen. “Right now, I don’t see anybody else out there saying, ‘What can we do for African-American women? What can we do to keep them alive?’” Bias said. Bias recently went through training to be a community health adviser to minority women. The training was courtesy of a $1 million grant from KeyBank Foundation and will eventually serve more than 110,000 women.

LAST YEAR’S SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE RAISED ABOUT $1 MILLION.

“Breast cancer is diagnosed every two minutes, and a woman dies of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the United States,” said Beth E. Mooney, KeyCorp chairman in a news release. “Its impact is especially devastating for women of color, who are more likely to die from breast cancer, and for poor or uninsured women.” Now Bias makes a point to educate other women on the eight signs of breast cancer and accompanies women to mammograms and treatment. “If a stranger talks to me too long, it’s gonna come up,” she said. Bias encouraged women to get checked out, especially if they are scared.

I agree that in a steadily growing market, with declining interest rates, direct risk sometimes outperforms mitigated risk. But try that in a downturn. It’s going to be volatile at best, and you know that. That’s why you are here.” Then we sat down and I showed him exactly how my family invests. That’s all I do. For all of you people who have been following us over the past 30 years, intending to call someday — The time has come. Follow your instincts to our door.

“I encourage them to go in. You know why? Because if they’re scared, there’s a reason for it,” she said. Bias also emphasized taking vanity out of the equation. “When I’m talking about the vanity, in the African-American community, we don’t want to be ostracized for a mastectomy,” she said. “Women have to realize a lot of women have had mastectomies.” “There’s life after a mastectomy. You can’t make it about somebody else. You have to make it about you,” she said. Westphal said of Bias, “She is a very strong woman. She’s very inspiring. She’s a woman who has battled breast cancer with grace and style.” Margaret “Lambie” Guyton Stout will also be honored at the race. Stout, a mother and businesswoman, died from breast cancer Sept. 11, 2011, at 42.

You never know how far a little kindness will go

befriended a few “unpopular” people during my adolescence. The junior high girl who students teased because of her back brace. The obese band member who substituted breath mints for regularly brushing. And the girl who no one wanted to sit with on the bus. I hadn’t thought about these people in a long time. Then I helped with a Sept. 19 program at Bowling Green State University, where I also work. Rachel’s Challenge is a global initiative to start a chain reaction of kindness. Rachel Scott was the first student shot and killed at Columbine High School in 1999. After her death, Scott’s family found some of her writings, including: “I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go.” It is a simple message worth repeating, especially with the school year under way. “Our words have power to hurt, our words have power to heal,” said speaker Doug Brandl, one of Scott’s family friends. Even 13 years after Columbine, Rachel’s Challenge resonated with BGSU students who were 5 or 6 years old when this shooting occurred because they have lived through recent school violence. Freshmen Bekah Pastor and Sarah Spaulding were seniors at Chardon High School during the Feb. 27 shooting in Ohio. Spaulding thought the lockdown was a drill … until it wasn’t. Pastor said she occasionally gets rattled if she hears a loud noise she mistakes for a gunshot, but the major aftereffect of the shooting is watching how she treats others. “I learned not to take things for granted,” Pastor said. “If I have a bad thought, I keep it to myself.” Rachel Scott would be proud.

Area residents reflect on Transplant Games, life as organ recipients Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

Those who are fortunate enough to be in good health often take life for granted. For Northwest Ohioans Allison Herr and Tonya Gomez, that is not the case. Herr, a 9-year-old living in Metamora, was born with biliary atresia and was on the transplant list for a liver by the age of 1. After waiting almost two years — and nearly losing the youngest of their three children — the Herr family got a call in 2006 notifying them a match had been found. “We got a call after being on the waiting list for one year and nine months,” Allison’s mother, Jenny Herr, told Toledo Free Press. “She got the

new liver, had some minor ups and downs the first year, but today she’s completely healthy and active. She’s your typical 9-year-old.” Although thrilled her daughter is now thriving, Jenny said it’s difficult to know the organ donor who gave Allison a liver — and the gift of life —had to die. “It’s hard to put into words. We’re celebrating life, but there’s suffering on the other end of it,” Jenny said. “What are the right words? When you talk to a donor, the donor families are so grateful to see us. [But] it’s hard to accept that, when you know deep down, our donor family, the first thing they think would have to be, ‘What would my child be doing now?’ Those feelings stay with you.” In July, Allison competed in the inaugural Transplant Games of America in Grand Rapids, Mich., winning

three gold medals (swimming, long jump and softball throw) and three silver medals (50-meter dash and two relay races). The games feature organ recipients as well as living donors competing in Olympic-style events. “It is hard to describe the emotional feeling you get from seeing your daughter, who basically cheated death, competing,” Jenny said. “We’ve met donor families and have gone through the grieving process and it comes full circle. Because of these people, we have people who are able to live life because they chose to donate [their organs].” Tonya Gomez, a 40-year-old dietician who lives in Archbold with her husband, Mario, and their son, Eric, also competed in the Transplant Games, winning silver medals in badminton and basketball and a bronze

medal in table tennis. Born with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects mainly the lungs but also the pancreas, liver and intestine, Gomez was put on the waiting list for lungs when she was 30. “It got to a point where, over the years, I would get infections and it would scar your lungs and you start losing function little by little,” Gomez said. “For a long time, I would sleep with oxygen just to give myself more energy. It got to the point where I had to be with oxygen 24/7 before my transplant.” Her health suffered further after the birth of her son. “I had my son in 2001 and I think after that, my health wasn’t superb,” said Gomez, who named her son after her brother who died of cystic fibrosis in 1981 at 6.

“[The doctors] told me I would probably have to wait two years because I was so petite that I would need a child’s lungs [for the transplant],” Gomez said. “My lung capacity was at 19 percent when I had my transplant.” After a year and a half of waiting, Gomez received two lungs. “The lungs fit perfectly and [the doctors said] it was easy getting my old lungs out,” Gomez said. “About a week and a half after my transplant, I had a little bit of a reaction, but I haven’t had any problems since then.” Like Jenny, Gomez also struggles with knowing her life-saving lungs came from someone else’s death. “The hardest part was knowing that I got my lungs from a 10-year-old boy,” Gomez said. “It hit my husband and I hard. We cried for a long time. It’s tough because my son, Eric, is 10 and that’s how old Adam was when he died. It was very tough thinking about that.” Gomez met her donor’s family in 2005. “That was a really emotional time,” Gomez said. “Adam was their only son. They have two daughters. They were awesome. I am grateful to them. Saying thank you isn’t enough. I remember the first time we met and the first time we had to say goodbye. It’s really hard. A part of Adam is inside me and when I am leaving [his mother], it’s always tough. I think they see the good that can come out of something that is so devastating, that you can do something like [donate an organ] and leave a legacy like that.” For more information, visit w w w. l i fe c on n e c t i on ofoh i o. org or go to www.transplantgames ofamerica.org.

OHIO BUSINESS

By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

An Ohio-based vodka company has concocted three cocktails inspired by legendary Ohio eateries, including Tony Packo’s. Buckeye Vodka created its “Iconic Ohio” drinks in tribute to Toledobased Tony Packo’s, Columbus-based White Castle and Cincinnati-based Skyline Chili. “We wanted to honor three incredibly successful Ohio-based food companies, and also have a little bit of fun,” said Jim Finke, CEO of Dayton-based Crystal Spirits LLC, parent company of family-owned Buckeye Vodka, which launched in April 2011. The drinks — the Buckeye Packotini for Tony Packo’s, Buckeye Bacon Slider for White Castle and Buckeye 5-Way for Skyline Chili — were the brainchild of Buckeye Vodka marketing representative Eric Sagun and developed by company mixologist Rachelle Chiarappa. “They sound terrible, but they are actually really good,” Finke said, laughing. The Buckeye Packo-tini features dill syrup and Tony Packo’s sweet-hot pickle juice, served in a martini glass with Tony Packo’s pickle slices on a cocktail stick, Chiarappa said. “Obviously, we wanted to incorporate pickles,” Chiarappa said. “I’m a huge fan of dirty martinis, so we did that with pickles instead of olives. The sweet hits first, followed by the heat and just makes a more complex martini than pickle juice and vodka. It resonates in the different parts of your mouth. Because Buckeye Vodka is made from corn, it has a spicy aftertaste that carries well with that type of flavor.” Chiarappa’s idea for the Buckeye Bacon Slider was to incorporate all the ingredients and garnishes that come on a burger. The drink includes homemade hickory-smoked bacon-infused vodka and seasoned tomato mix served in a tall glass with a sea salt rim, candied bacon strip and cocktail stick featuring a cheese cube, cocktail onion and pickle slice. “You don’t get overpowered by

the bacon, but you can definitely taste it. It enhances the vodka taste and gives you that smell you get at the grill,” Chiarappa said. “I was unsure at first, but trust me, it was delicious. People who like bloody marys would like this drink.” The Buckeye 5-Way features dark rum and five-spice syrup sweetened with honey and molasses, finished with thin spaghetti as a stir stick. The flavors mirror the restaurant’s chili sauce, which includes spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, Chiarappa said. “People who don’t know Skyline Chili often ask, ‘Why does this smell like cinnamon when it’s supposed to be chili?’ That’s the big Grecian influence,” Chiarappa said. “I took all the spices they use in their chili, but made the drink sweet by pairing them with honey and molasses along with vodka and rum. It’s amazing. This one is my favorite. You think of a gingerbread cookie when you smell this drink.” Because it’s sweet where the other two are salty, people who drink lime and Coke or Bacardi and diet will like the 5-Way, Chiarappa said. Chiarappa said it was fun to think outside the box. “It’s nice because it keeps the focus on the local economy,” Chiarappa said. “Initially I thought we were going to make them as a novelty at best, but when everything turned out, they were actually fantastic.” Sagun agreed. “I’ve personally tried all three and was very pleasantly surprised by how good they tasted,” he said. Chiarappa said she only asks that people try before they judge. “Definitely keep an open mind and don’t judge a drink by its cover,” Chiarappa said. “Don’t be afraid to try new things, especially if it’s a drink from your city.” Buckeye Vodka products are sold in about 300 of Ohio’s 450 liquor stores and are available in about 600 Ohio bars and restaurants, Finke said. Toledo Walleye home games last season featured a Buckeye Vodka Shot of the Game. For more information, visit www.BuckeyeVodka.com.O

Hollywood Casino — Year One

Casino revenue helping offset funding shortfalls

By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

With city and county budgets statewide affected by slashed and dried-up revenue sources, local government officials say they are thankful for the quarterly infusion of casino tax revenue, while noting the amount is rarely enough to fully offset funding gaps. Gamblers wagered a total of $349.8 million at Ohio’s two casinos in August: $168.2 million at Hollywood Casino Toledo and $181.6 million at Horseshoe Casino Cleveland. After payouts, the casinos had a total adjusted gross revenue of $40.3 million for the month. The state collects a 33 percent tax on that revenue. Fifty-one percent is distributed among Ohio’s 88 counties based on population. Counties whose largest city has 80,000 people or more split their share with that city. Thirtyfour percent is distributed among public school districts, 5 percent among host cities, 3 percent to Ohio Casino Control Commission, 3 percent to the Ohio State Racing Commission fund, 2 percent to a state law enforcement training fund and 2 percent to a state problem gambling and addictions fund. The first quarterly distribution to cities and counties was July 31; the next will be Oct. 31. The first biannual school district distribution is set for Jan. 31. Toledo has so far received $531,616 in casino revenue, which includes its $192,041 share of Lucas County’s distribution as well as a host city distribution of $339,575. City Finance Director Patrick McLean said the money went into the city’s general fund. The city’s 2012 budget includes a projected $3.4 million in casino revenue. In future years, the city hopes to dedicate some of the revenue to the city’s rainy day fund, McLean said. “We may be able to do it for 2013. We will make those kinds of decisions as part of our 2013 budget preparations, which are under way right now,” McLean said. Lucas County received $192,041, which went into the county’s general fund, said Kelly Roberts, director of the county’s Office of Management and Budget. Lucas County’s 2012 budget includes a projected $545,000 in casino tax revenue. “We’re hoping to hit our estimate,” Roberts said. “We’re hoping it doesn’t replace the local government funds, that we keep getting the funds we’re getting and that the casino revenue doesn’t offset it and replace it.” Wood County’s distribution of $110,296 was allocated to the county engineer’s road and bridge fund, said

Wood County Administrator Andrew Kalmar. Kalmar said the commissioners will evaluate needs each quarter before deciding where to spend casino revenue. “Our presumption is people will initially be excited about casinos and new places to go and the tax revenue might be a little higher, but then after a while that might come down to a more regular level,” Kalmar said. “We’ll just have to wait and see.” Cleveland received about $1.2 million in casino revenue, including its $554,424 share of Cuyahoga County’s distribution and a host city payout of $648,431. Cleveland City Council passed legislation last year allocating 15 percent to council and 85 percent to the administration’s general fund, but have made no decisions about use, said City of Cleveland press secretary Andrea Taylor. Cuyahoga County received a distribution of $554,424. “It’s nice to have, but no matter what we do we will be limited in what we can do, compared to the municipality here,” said Cuyahoga Council Chief of Staff Joe Nanni. Ohio’s least-populous county is also benefiting from bets wagered at the state’s two casinos. South-central Ohio’s Vinton County has just over 13,000 residents and received $11,668, the state’s smallest distribution. “I can tell you right now, it’s going directly into the general fund to try and make up some of the money we’ve lost,”

said Vinton County Commissioner Mike Bledsoe. “We appreciate it’s there, no doubt about that, but it’s not going to a rainy day fund or a slush fund. It’s just another fund we hope will help us keep our head above water, which we’re sinking fast.” Vinton County Auditor Cindy Owings Waugh said she is anticipating the Oct. 8 opening of Hollywood Casino Columbus, because it will offer muchneeded job opportunities as well as increased casino revenue. “People will drive. I have no doubt in

my mind someone from Vinton County will be employed there,” Waugh said. “There are no jobs here.” Canton and Youngstown have dropped below 80,000 residents, but will still receive payouts because the distributions are based on 2000 figures. Cleveland suburb Parma had a population of 85,655 residents in 2000, but won’t get any casino revenue because it is Cuyahoga County’s second largest city behind Cleveland.

ARE YOU

EFFICIENT? ENERGY SPOTLIGHT #12: Recently, two local auto dealerships embarked on an energy efficiency plan that will save money and energy. The dealerships upgraded their interior and exterior lighting to high performance LED lighting at both of their facilities that will save them over 60% in electricity costs annually! In addition, the new and improved lighting significantly enhanced the look and color of the cars in the parking lots, showroom and body/maintenance shop while also improving security. BetterBuildings Northwest Ohio was able to provide the dealerships attractive financing to pay for the enhancements that will be repaid through special energy assessments. The energy savings will cover the costs of the equipment and installation of the upgrades which makes the project “self-funding”. If you are looking for ways to cut costs and improve overall conditions to your facility, consider engaging in an energy efficiency plan. BetterBuildings Northwest Ohio can help you find a solution that is right for you and will get you on your way to saving money and energy. To learn how, call BBNWO today!

Six area businesses honored for excellence By Sarah Ottney

TOLEDO FREE PRESS MANAGING EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Six area businesses were recently announced as this year’s Entrepreneurial & Business Excellence Hall of Fame (EBE HOF) honorees. Honored for business excellence are Burkett Restaurant Equipment, based in Toledo; Clouse Construction Corp., based in New Riegel; NovaVision Inc., based in Bowling Green; and Riker Products, based in Toledo. Mel Lanzer Company, based in Napoleon, is honored for excellence in family business. Solar Spectrum LLC is honored for excellence in startup innovation. The companies will be inducted during a ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at The Pinnacle, 1772 Indian Wood Circle, in Maumee. Tickets are $85. The Dav-

enport-Longenecker Lifetime Achievement Award for Business Advocacy will be announced at the event. The EBE HOF, presented by the University of Toledo, recognizes entrepreneurs who have built and sustained growing businesses and created jobs in the region as well as businesses that display technological innovation, said Adam Davenport, EBE HOF chairman and president of Gorillas & Gazelles, founding sponsor of the event. “We’re really excited,” Davenport said. “We have a few construction companies, a restaurant supplier, solar once again through the University of Toledo, an automotive supplier, a security label manufacturer. There’s just a lot of diverse industries represented this year.” Gary Frye, president and CEO of Riker Products, said, “We feel very, very honored to receive this award.”

Riker Products, which has been in business since the late 1940s and employs about 180 people, buys and bends tubing for use in heavy-duty exhaust systems and sells its products to trucking, mining and agricultural companies worldwide. Frye has been with the company for more than 40 years, starting as a laborer while still in high school and working his way to head of the company. Mike Messmer, vice president and general manager of NovaVision, said the company is honored. “One person could not do what we’re doing and the fact that we can grow is because we have such an excellent team,” Messmer said. Founded in 1994, NovaVision has about 45 employees and specializes in technologies that provide anti-counterfeiting and anti-tampering features, including hologram labels, tamper-evident stickers, security tape, security seals and more. Its products are used worldwide, including by federal and state governments, military, airlines, ski resorts and collectibles dealers, Messmer said. More than 700 people attended last year’s ceremony, Davenport said. “It’s just a breath of fresh air to see that so many people will come out and support an event like this that showcases some of the inspiration stories and companies around this area,” Davenport said. “One thing we’re told is it’s an inspiration to many people out there that there are a lot of great things happening around here.” Visit www.ebehof.com for more.

In conversations with a number of were actually frozen for a time).As these investors, I’ve asked how bonds difficulties mounted and production

lagged (causing sagging exports), the ruble began to weaken in international markets. Midway through the year, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank arranged an international loan to shore up both the ruble and Russian debt. Somehow, roughly a quarter of the funds disappeared immediately upon arrival. In this case, the claim is that they were stolen, though the cause for their disappearance is essentially irrelevant (in this country, the funds would more likely be distributed among key unions), the funds simply weren’t there to help stabilize the country monetarily. Everything came to a head Aug. 13, 1998, when the floor gave way and Russia’s bond market collapsed. Investors had suddenly begun to doubt Russia’s ability to repay its bonds, and once prices began tumbling, they quickly started an avalanche, which ultimately led to the noted failure of early hedgefund Long-Term Capital Management, which counted among its directors several people with doctorates and even Nobel laureates. At one point during the collapse, interest rates on Russian debt reached 200 percent. This means that previously issued bonds with stated interest rates of, say, 5 percent, were worth only .025 percent of their face value. In other words, a $1,000 bond paying 5 percent interest was suddenly worth about $0.25. As a result of the crisis on Aug. 13, 1998, four days later Russia had to in-

tentionally devalue the ruble. It also suspended interest payments on debts held by foreign investors, an all-too-common occurrence throughout history during various debt crises. It has the terrible potential impact of a future crisis for the United States, given the dollar’s standing as the world’s reserve currency. The lessons to be learned from this are numerous. Hopefully, more retail investors will avoid dabbling in markets they know little about, but if they’re going to continue playing the game, at least they will know more of the nuances. Namely, investors should know that when interest rates begin to rise on government debt, quite often they don’t creep — they jump. When these interest rates jump, the value of outstanding bonds doesn’t slide — it plummets. When there are

doubts concerning the repayment of debt by a sovereign nation (which we’re already beginning to hear from both sides of the political aisle), rarely is the case that investors simply demand marginally higher interest rates in order to absorb newly issued debt. Instead, there simply is no money available. Investors refuse to buy bonds at almost any rate of interest. O Dock David Treece is a partner with Treece Investment Advisory Corp (www.

More than 100 people attended the second PechaKUCHA NIGHT in Toledo in June.

Slide shows feature artists, advocates By Brigitta Burks

Toledo Free Press News Editor bburks@toledofreepress.com

The third Toledo PechaKucha Night will feature slide shows galore — at least 10 different presentations, each with 20 slides allotted 20 seconds each. Doors open 7 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) Glass Pavilion. The free event features a cash bar and light snacks. “[PechaKucha is] used for artists, designers, people that ADAMS are advocating for anything and everything,” said event organizer Kimberly Adams. PechaKucha began in Tokyo in 2003 as a way for young designers to share their ideas. “They started it for architects, because the architects tended to be a little longwinded when they were presenting their designs so they kind of shortened that format for them,” Adams said. Now the nights occur in more than 500 cities all over the world and Tokyo itself has had about 100 PechaKucha Nights. Adams, founder of Tart Projects, an artists’ platform, also organized Toledo’s first PechaKucha Night, which took place March 31 at Manhattan’s and the second,

which was June 12 at the Toledo-Lucas County Main Library. She recently moved back to Ohio after living in Tampa, Fla., where she first observed PechaKucha. “I’d been to a couple in Tampa and they were really well put-together so I just thought it’d be great to happen here,” Adams said. More than 100 people attended the last event. “It was really well-received. A lot of people were like, ‘Let us know when the next one is. We’ll be there,’” Adams said. “This time, we focused on arts and nonprofits so what’s going on in the area, just to inform the public what’s going on,” she added. A representative from TMA’s Circle 2445 group, which tries to engage young adults with the museum, reached out to help with the event and offer space, Adams said, adding she is excited about the “really cool venue.” Organizing PechaKucha is getting easier, she said. “The more [people] see it, they’re like, ‘I can totally do this. I’ll present at the next one,’” Adams said. “A lot of people have hesitation about public speaking. … You just don’t have time to worry about it. You just get up there and do your thing and before you know it, it’s over.” Rachel Richardson, Art Corner Toledo founder, was one of the hesitant. “I went to the first two and I realized what a positive event it was,” she said. “I got over myself.”

The rapid-fire format excites Richardson. “I personally have a short attention span, so the fact that I know the person is going to touch on the most interesting stuff makes me sit still and listen,” she said. Richardson said she plans to present on the birth and evolution of Art Corner Toledo, a group that nurtures artists and activists. Ken Leslie, founder of 1Matters, an advocacy group for the homeless, will also present. The format doesn’t intimidate Leslie. “I’m not afraid at all. I relish the opportunity to share the bigger picture of the work that we’re doing,” he said. He said he will focus on collaborative efforts of the community and misconceptions about the homeless. He expects his presentation to be humorous but also touching. Leslie also said he is looking forward to Richardson’s presentation. “She is one of those unsung heroes that’s doing a lot to change the face, the physical face of our community,” he said. Adams will present in addition to Dustin Hostetler of Circle 2445, Amber LeFever of LeSo Gallery, Bradley Scherzer of Toledo on the Map, Sadi Starmack and Jamie Baird of UGIVE.ORG, Nicole Tarver of The One Story Project, glass artist Brien Strancar and architect Paul Sullivan. After September’s event, the next PechaKucha night is set for January. Another sponsor is needed for September. For more information, visit pechakucha.org/night/toledo. O

UGIVE.ORG gives local high school students and nonprofits a way to connect via volunteer opportunities. The website allows nonprofits to post volunteer opportunities that high-schoolers can then sign up for at no cost. It’s a great tool for high schools that require volunteer hours, said Jamie Baird, youth service outreach coordinator. “It’s up to the student to go in and find an opportunity and sign up for it. The nonprofit can go in and approve the hours for the student so they can keep track of everything,” Baird said. Teachers can also make certain volunteer opportunities “featured” so they appear more prominently to encourage students to apply. Baird and Sadi Starmack, both AmeriCorps VISTA workers, recently took over as youth service outreach coordinators for the nonprofit. The last coordinator, Paige Salamin, has been in Toledo for three years. “I’ve loved every second of it and if AmeriCorps would let me stay in my position, I would. I’m basically timing out,” Salamin said. The nonprofit is headquartered in Cincinnati and has several locations throughout the state, including in Toledo. Right now, the website is just for high school students, but could expand to college students in the future, Baird said. This year, the nonprofit is especially pushing literacy tutoring and hopes to get 150 high school kids to be tutors. “I’ve been a tutor before in high school and college and it’s important to coordinate those activities,” Starmack said. “A lot of kids who aren’t proficient in reading by third grade are less likely to graduate from high school or graduate from high school on time, so we’re trying to improve the graduation rate,” Baird added. Volunteering can also offer something to the high schoolers. “Not only are you helping yourself if you’re volunteering, because you are building skills, but it looks great if you’re applying for college or anything like that, but [also] that sense of community is important to a lot of people,” Baird said. “It’s important for community members to take initiative to make their community a better place instead of just kind of sitting around, waiting to be rescued,” Starmack said. Another part of UGIVE is UCREW, which gives 30 high school students a chance to develop their own social enterprise and choose their own cause. Last year, the local UCREW raised $1,500 for Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio through a spaghetti dinner, car wash and bake sales. The program will run from October to February 2013. “It was a really great experience and I definitely loved meeting some of the people,” said Trevor Walsh, a senior at Lake High School, who did UCREW last school year. UCREW chose to support Cancer Connection last year because it had helped out one of the group member’s family. “We are kind of like a family, you could say, in that we bonded kind of closely so we took that on a personal level,” Walsh said. Walsh also used UGIVE to volunteer at Food for Thought and Sunrise Center. “UGIVE is a really easy way to find opportunities in the area,” Walsh said. “Youth get the idea that we’re supposed to make an impact when we grow up, when in fact we’re supposed to be making that impact right now.” For more information, visit UGIVE.org.

People like Kennedy, who, along with her ponytails and butterfly tattoos, wears her brain surgery scar like a badge of courage. At ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital, 80% of our patients participate in national clinical trials, and receive family-focused care and all the support they need to help them deal with childhood cancer. To learn more about Kennedy’s story, visit promedica.org/kennedysstory.
