Appeal filed

n Oct. 3, Toledo Free Press attorneys filed an appeal to the 6th District Court of Appeals. We are seeking to have the appellate court reverse some of the rulings made by the trial court in a judgment entry that was issued Sept. 6 in the ongoing lawsuit aimed at us by Block Communications Inc. (BCI), parent of The Blade. The legal process can be messy, but our legal position is clear. We have discussed on these pages the belief that we are being targeted to be put our of business with a suit that attacks our First Amendment rights and now seeks to erode the rights of LLC investors in Ohio. As part of the discovery phase of the case, the parties are entitled to seek certain information from each other. Typically, the scope of discovery is broad, but certain information or documents can be withheld if they fall into specific categories protected by law or the courts. BCI has sought, during the discovery process, to obtain from Toledo Free Press certain information that we assert is privileged or protected from discovery. BCI has asked that we Thomas F. Pounds disclose the identities of our owners, information which is not available to the public and that we have kept confidential. BCI has also sought to obtain certain proprietary and business information from us, including our business plans. Since BCI is the owner of our largest direct competitor, the disclosure of this information would be extremely damaging to our business. As a result, we did not give that information to BCI. BCI asked the trial court under Judge Gary Cook to order us to provide that information. On Sept. 6, the court ordered us to turn over the business information and the identities of our owners. We believe the trial court was in error in ordering the disclosure of this information. With regards to the issue of the disclosure of the members’ names, the trial court acknowledged that this is an area of law that lacks much in the way of precedential guidance. We believe this sets a dangerous precedent that will have a detrimental effect on businesses statewide. We believe that the identities of our members and our business plans are protected by Ohio’s trade secret rules and that the court should not force the disclosure to a direct competitor. The case essentially freezes until the appeals court renders an opinion on the issues being appealed, which are only a small part of the larger case. Once the court of appeals has rendered its decision, the matter returns to the trial court and the case resumes. The appellate process could take several months, a scenario that further allows this suit to drain our resources and jeopardize our operations. As people continue to ask how they can help, we ask again that you channel your feelings into positive action. Help us by supporting the nonprofit organizations and the charity events we sponsor. Help us by recognizing and thanking the businesses that support Toledo Free Press, through advertising or by allowing us to distribute at their location. Let the advertisers know you read Toledo Free Press and understand how important their patronage is, just as they understand how important your patronage is to them. We are in this fight for the long haul; thank you for your support. O Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

THE ARMS FORCES

An invisible wound W

earing a mask is a tradition for children each October as they go doorto-door in search of treats — and for adults attending masquerade parties. It can be fun to play being someone else for a night and live out some fantasies. At the end of the night, the mask comes off and life goes back to reality. But for many veterans who have a traumatic brain injury, the mask they wear every day is not fun and games. Imagine for a moment that a person who’s lost a leg would have to wear pants to cover their very Pam visible wound, because people did not believe that the limb was missing. Imagine the person with no leg having to leave their cane at home because they were constantly being asked why they have a cane, even though their leg was clearly not there, and they were tired of the questions. Imagine the person without a leg staying home and avoiding people more and more because the understanding of their wound was not there and the ability to put on “the mask” of being OK, when life was quite the opposite, was too much to bear. It would be odd for someone without a limb to be scrutinized for their injury. But, for the rapidly growing number of veterans who have a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, the “mask” of pretending to be coping starts as a survival mechanism, but can become a life sentence of denial and never finding their true, new self. TBI is one of the invisible wounds of war and military service. It is an injury that others can’t see; from the exterior, sufferers appear OK. But from the inside out, the view of life has drastically changed for the survivor. How would you feel if one day, for one moment in time, you could comprehend sentences and then couldn’t? Or you could enjoy reading one minute but suddenly it became exhausting? Or you could laugh at your favorite type of comedy, but then without warning you couldn’t quite get whether

someone is joking or serious? Or if you had lots of energy to complete your tasks, but then staying on track with conversations felt like a full day of work? There are many life changes associated with surviving a TBI, many more than I could write about in one column. But one of the greatest challenges that survivors face has more to do with the people around them than what is going on in their own brains. The lack of understanding about TBI puts survivors in a position to explain themselves time Hays and time again. I remember hearing after my devastating injuries to my brain and other parts of my physical body, “Well, you look good.” These words were so difficult for me to hear! I didn’t care that my outside physical self looked good in their view; I was very depressed and sad and horribly confused about the view I had of myself from the inside out. I may not have served in a war or the military service, but as many of the veterans I serve through our organization tell me, “You have been in the foxhole with us, Pam, because you know what it is like to put a life back together after invisible wounds.” I can’t begin to tell you what that kind of understanding means to me! There is no “recovery” from TBI. I know that goes against the language used in many recovery programs, but recovery is a word that suggests a TBI survivor can always go back to the person they were before the injury. That is not true. But I, and the veterans I assist, have come to a “joyful renewal” — a place of acceptance of who we are now and a passion to be the best we can be and move forward with a joyful spirit. Remember, those who look like they don’t have a care in the world may be fighting some of the most difficult battles of their life.

“I played one day and when I went to play it the next day, it was locked,” he said. “I wondered why, because it was a gift to the public. It turned out some kids were pounding on the keys so they locked it. Some people have a key to the city; I have a key to the city’s piano.” Diller caressed a silver key that would be comfortable in the hands of a secretive hero in a black-and-white movie. He said many people stop to listen while he plays. “I play about 15 minutes as people either sit and relax or just smile as they walk by,” he said. Several officials expressed gratitude for Diller’s music. Lucas County Administrator Peter Ujvagi said Diller’s piano playing “soothes the savage beasts around here.” A member of Mayor Mike Bell’s administration said when City Council meetings bog down, it is calming to step outside council chambers to listen to Diller play. They aren’t alone in their admiration for Diller’s impact. A petition in the building’s newsstand, asking to keep the piano in the lobby, has been signed by nearly 300 people. The petition was started by an employee of the Lucas County Board of Elections, who said she had been forbidden to give an interview on the topic. One official said he heard DAS wants to move the piano because it “doesn’t fit the decor.” Anthony J. Matney, northern Ohio group facilities manager, Office of Properties and Facilities for DAS, said he was not aware of any complaints or public concerns about the piano. “My understanding is we are moving the piano to the cafeteria so more patrons can enjoy the music during their lunchtime,” Matney said. Diller said he does not want the piano moved to the 13th floor cafeteria for a number of reasons. “There is a TV playing in the cafeteria, and I was taught by my mom and dad to not play the piano while a TV is playing,” he said. “The general public can use the cafeteria, but few people know that and playing up there would be playing for employees, who may not want the music while they are trying to enjoy their lunchtime. If the TV is playing there, I won’t play.” Diller said he learned about the piano’s potential relocation from a guard who saw the sign, and no one has asked him for input about the move. He said he appreciates the petition and the kind attention he has received. “It’s humbling and I am honored,” he said.

One elected official had a more whimsical take on Diller’s role in the building’s culture. ‘With the stress and budget cuts and state of things, when I hear the piano playing, I think of the band on the Titanic,’ the official said. ‘It’s a center of grace and calm on a sinking ship.’ Lucas County Commissioner Pete Gerken said he was going to speak to DAS and ask for the piano to stay where it is, with a possible resolution expected by the commissioners next week. “We are a major tenant in this building and that piano is going to stay where it is,” Gerken said. “It was given for public use and they will need to unchain us from it and bring in the National Guard to disrupt [Diller’s] contributions.” Toledo City Councilwoman Paula HicksHudson was also reportedly looking into the situation with an eye on keeping the piano where it is. One elected official had a more whimsical take on Diller’s role in the building’s culture. “With the stress and budget cuts and state of things, when I hear the piano playing, I think of the band on the Titanic,” the official said. “It’s a center of grace and calm on a sinking ship.” O Michael S.

Bar Association releases judge recommendations By Bailey Dick Toledo Free Press Political Writer bdick@toledofreepress.com

Members of the Toledo Bar Association (TBA) have shared their recommendations for local judgeships. In a poll taken by TBA members between Aug. 22 and Sept. 6, local lawyers were asked if they would “highly recommend,” “recommend” or “not recommend” each of the candidates. Members were provided with biographies of each candidate, and were asked to answer only if they had “sufficient information” about the potential judges. The TBA told members to consider candidates’ “integrity, legal ability, legal experience, fair-mindedness, promptness, professionalism and judicial temperament,” as well as their commitment to public and community service. Three candidates are running to fill a seat in Toledo’s Municipal Court vacated by Judge Michael Goulding, who was appointed to fill a vacancy in the Lucas County Common Pleas Court. Republican Joshua Lanzinger will run to keep his seat on the bench, as he was appointed to temporarily fill Goulding’s vacancy in September by Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Democrat Gretchen DeBacker, a lawyer in private practice, is hoping to defeat Lanzinger, as is Republican attorney Kenneth Phillips. In the poll, 18 percent of TBA members said they would highly recommend Lanzinger to serve as judge, while 44 percent said they would rec-

ommend him. 38 percent of respondents said they would not recommend Lanzinger. Lanzinger said he was “happy with the results” of the poll. “I think I’ve got a very good reputation among my peers,” he said. “I am a strong advocate for my clients, but I still treat my fellow council respectfully.” Lanzinger, a Toledo native and Iraq War veteran, has practiced law since 1998; he worked for the Ohio Attorney General’s office before being appointed to the bench.

Highest marks: DeBacker

Of all of the candidates running for judge, DeBacker received the highest percentage of highly recommend or recommend votes in the poll. While 30 percent of TBA members DeBacker said they would highly recommend DeBacker for the position, 45.7 percent said they would recommend her. The final 23.7 percent said they would not recommend DeBacker. Phillips received the lowest numbers of the three candidates. With 9.2 percent of those polled saying they would highly recommend him, while 42 percent said they would recommend him. The remaining 48.2 percent would not recommend Phillips for the bench. Phillips said he had a mixed reac-

HISTORY

Scott High School celebrates 100 years Toledo’s oldest high school is celebrating 100 years of operation. Scott High School will host its centennial celebration with a banquet Oct. 19 at the SeaGate Convention Centre, 401 Jefferson Ave. Tickets are $75 per person, and the celebration will kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a cash bar cocktail reception. The dinner and program begin at 7 p.m. Scott, located at 2400 Collingwood Blvd., was built in 1911, and opened for classes on Sept. 8, 1913. A group of Scott alumni have been

working together since 2010 to plan the centennial events, which will also include an open house at the high school from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 20. Organizers hope to establish a Scott High School scholarship with proceeds from ticket sales, as well as collect contributions in exchange for spaces in the Scott “memory book.” Contributions may range from $100 for a patron donation to $10,000 for the back cover of the book.

tion when he saw the results of the Bar Association’s poll. “It was about 50/50,” Phillips said. “I just figured it was OK.” Phillips said he felt the Toledo Bar Association’s poll, which is taken during each judicial election, was not indicative of the Toledo legal community as a whole. “We don’t give it much credence,” Phillips said. “It’s not representative of the legal community, and it’s heavily weighted with Democrats.” Lanzinger agreed. “They’re somewhat hard to predict,” Lanzinger said. “I don’t know who actually participates in the polls, but I assume those that didn’t are backers of the other two candidates.” Jenna Grubb, the director of communications for TBA, said the poll is not meant to endorse candidates and that the poll’s results are open to analysis by both the candidates and voters. “It’s not the kind of poll that asked people for reasoning, so we can’t ascribe meaning to the numbers,” Grubb said. Grubb said members of the TBA are highly qualified to make the recommendations. “Legal professionals are trained and practice in law, and these are people who have close professional associations with the candidates,” she said. Also running for a judgeship is current Municipal Court Judge Amy Berling, running unopposed to retain her position. Of the TBA members polled, 13 percent said they would highly recommend her, 34.2 voted recommend and 52.8 percent would not recommend.

Suburban races

The poll also asked Toledo Bar Association members about two suburban judge races. In the Perrysburg Municipal Court race, 23.5 percent of respondents said they would highly recommend attorney Molly Mack to the bench. While 48.7 percent said they would recommend her and 27.8 percent said they would not recommend her. Also running in Perrysburg is City Councilman Thomas Mackin. The poll found 39.9 percent of TBA members said they would highly recommend Mackin, while 48.7 percent would recommend and 11.4 percent would not recommend him. Judge Mark Reddin of Bowling

Green’s Municipal Court is running unopposed in his race, and received the highest number of highly recommend votes out of all candidates in all area races. With 55.2 percent of respondents saying they would highly recommend him, 41 percent responded recommend. Only 3.8 percent said they would not recommend Reddin. While the poll focused on TBA members’ votes, Grubb said that citizens could make use of the information the poll provides when deciding who to vote for. “They could read the polls, talk with attorneys they might know and talk with friends who use the legal system,” Grubb said.

Event to pair young professionals with local philanthropies By Bailey Dick

Toledo Free Press Political Writer bdick@toledofreepress.com

When imagining the kind of people who might be on the board of an organization, it’s common to think of older professionals. But one group of young Toledo young professionals is looking to change the face of nonprofit boards. Three area organizations — EPIC Toledo, 20 Under 40 and Leadership Toledo — are hosting an event called Board Fair: Engage, Inspire, & Involve on Oct. 16 at The Toledo Club. The free event aims to connect young professionals with area nonprofits, and show them how to become more involved with the organizations. “We’ll have directors there to meet people and hear what they’re looking for,” said Sara Swisher, director of EPIC Toledo. “We’ll help them find something they’re passionate about and try to bring everything together in one place: agencies and young professionals.” Swisher said there has been a recent need from several area organizations for board members, and that the Board Fair hopes to connect young professionals to those groups. “This is an opportunity to take on a role in the community, have fun, meet people and give back to the commu-

nity,” Swisher said. For those who don’t have experience serving on the board of a nonprofit, the Board Fair will include two presentations by Sara Best of Aly Sterling Philanthropy on what young professionals can expect from being a board member. “For many people, this is going to be their first experience serving on a nonprofit board, so [Best] is going to be giving a brief presentation on what kind of responsibilities they will have,” Swisher said. The Board Fair will host 21 area nonprofits, including Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity, Cherry Street Mission Ministries, the Boys & Girls Club of Toledo and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio. “The organizations focus on everything from education to arts and human services,” Swisher said. And if none of the 21 organizations is a good match, but a young professional still wants to get more involved with a nonprofit, Swisher said EPIC will find a way to connect that person with something that works. EPIC Toledo’s Board Fair will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 at the Toledo Club, 235 14th St. Presentations by Best will be given twice, at 6 and 7 p.m. To register, visit the web site www.epictoledo.com.

Rockets of all ages gathered for the University of Toledo’s homecoming weekend Oct. 5-7. Among them was Heidi Burkhart, who graduated in 2002 and was in town for a special honor. Burkhart was the recipient of the Edward H. Schmidt Outstanding Young Alumna award. At 31 years old, Burkhart is an accomplished real estate professional. In 2008, she founded Dane Professional Consulting Group (Dane PCG) in New York City with her own savings. The company specializes in affordable housing brokerage and consulting. “I was shocked to hear a lot of brokers weren’t interested in [affordable housing brokerage],” Burkhart said of her start in the industry. “It’s huge in New York.” She began her career in real estate in 2003, and during her first year a friend introduced her to the affordable housing program. As a philanthropist, the career move was a perfect fit for Burkhart. “It’s a beautiful thing to give back to the community,” she said. She eventually became a senior director at Eastern Consolidated in New York, but Burkhart felt she was not getting the support she needed to expand professionally. That’s when she formed Dane PCG. “It was scary as hell! I’m shocked

to this day,” she said. “It’s hard for me to take how much I’ve done and actually see it.” During her 10-year career, Burkhart has closed on more than 10,000 affordable housing units, with more than $1 billion in net sales. She BURKHART sits on the board of directors for the Institute for Responsible Housing Preservation, and the New York State Association for Affordable Housing as well as Kids Unlimited in Toledo. “I’m so happy to be where I’m at and able to give back to people,” she said. “I feel so blessed.” As a volunteer with Kids Unlimited, Habitat for Humanity, Food Bank NYC and more, Burkhart said she hopes to inspire others. Each year, UT’s Alumni Association gives three major awards to alumni: the Blue T, the Gold T and the Outstanding Young Alum award. Dan Saevig, associate vice president for alumni relations, said alumni nominate each other for the awards each year. Information is then compiled on each of the nominees, and a committee of graduates who don’t know the nominees select the winners. “It’s a very competitive process,”

Saevig said. “It’s an opportunity for us to showcase some of the great graduates we have at the University of Toledo.” Saevig said the Outstanding Young Alum award is a combination of the Blue T and Gold T awards. Nominees must be younger than 35 and have achieved great success in their field. They must also be involved in their community. “Heidi’s a good example of somebody who has very successfully blended a really good business career with being very involved in other not-for-profit organizations,” he said. “She’s a great example of some of the outstanding graduates coming out of University of Toledo.” Dane PCG expanded within the past year, and Burkhart said she’s hoping to expand the brokerage into hotels and student housing in addition to affordable housing. She said her goal is to develop a sustainable income so the business can support itself. She also has a new venture in the works. Saxon/Hart started as a blog, but is growing into a makeover site for beauty specialists to showcase their talents. The program will help cosmetology students in New York with tuition assistance. An upcoming fundraising event in New York for Kids Unlimited is yet another example of Burkhart’s dedication to her own company motto: “Give to live. Live to give.” O

Lott Industries, Vista Foods partnership feeds children TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Feeding the poor is always a

worthwhile cause, but a Toledo company is proud of being so while simultaneously serving area workers with disabilities. Lott Industries, which has two

facilities in Toledo and Maumee, has employed people with developmental disabilities since 1965. This summer, Lott teamed with Vista Food Exchange to complete a contract with

The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to customers who are unaware about the NON-GMO Project and how it helps the quality of food that we consume. We will have vendors educating customers about their products and the difference between GMO and NON-GMO.  You may be asking yourself — What are GMOs? GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals.

the Ohio Association of Foodbanks to package and ship meals to be distributed to children living in some of Ohio’s poorer areas. Matthew Gibson, who had previously worked with Champion Foodservice on an Ohio Association of Foodbanks contract, began working with Vista this year, and wanted to take a new approach and put people to work in the process. Tim Menke, sales manager for Lott Industries, said Gibson approached the company based on a recommendation, and submitted a bid to the state to win the contract. “He brought the idea to us. Instead of having machines make the meals like he did last year, his idea was to hire people to hand-pack it,” Menke said. Under the new system, meals were packed in “backpacks” — lunch bags packed with four meals and two breakfasts. “It was easier for the volunteers on the other end to distribute the foods this way,” Menke said. The previous packing method, done by machines, still required people to be hired to unload the meals and package them into individual containers, Menke said. Gibson decided bringing the contract to a facility like Lott would not only allow for packaging of ready-toopen, shelf-stable meals customized for individuals, but would also provide a mutual benefit in the process. “He loved the idea that we employ adults with developmental disabilities,” Menke said. “It kind of creates a great story all around, from our end all the way to the poor children that we’re feeding. It gave our people an opportunity to train and earn money. When it got to the food bank side, it was real simple — the kids could line up, grab a package and bring it home, without having to

have all the volunteers there.” The meals were distributed throughout Ohio during the summer. According to Menke, more than 600,000 units were shipped from Lott, which fed about 100,000 children. “Our people absolutely loved it,” Menke said. “We’ve been looking for work opportunities, so when this contract came around we had probably 160 individuals busy every day for four straight months. Some people were earning paychecks that haven’t in quite some time.” London Mitchell, public information manager for the Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Lott Industries spokesman, said the project allowed Lott to create a healthy work environment for workers with potential behavioral issues. “If there is an individual who may have some behavior issues, we like them to be in a room where there is maybe one staff [member] to three [workers],” he said. “We kind of customized the work that’s expected of those people based on their behavior disabilities.” “The contract was a blessing, not only from our side, for the adults that we serve [because] they were happy to be busy,” Menke added. “They also understood that the meals that they were putting together were to help feed poor children around the state of Ohio, so they really made that connection. They were proud of what they were doing and they were happy to be working.” With the food bank project recently completed, Menke said Lott will also work with Vista on other projects, such as packaging meals for school systems as far away as Arizona and California. He said he expects Lott’s relationship with Vista to be long-term. “There are a lot of other opportunities we’re going to be pursuing.”O

Grief counselors can help navigate pain By Danielle Stanton

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Grief affects people from all walks of life. Emotionally, it can be like the Magnum XL-200 roller coaster at Cedar Point. Tack on physical, behavioral and spiritual symptoms and you have a recipe for pain, area counselors say. To understand grief and work through their pain, many people hire professional counselors, who can sympathize and support them on their road to recovery. Mark Anderson has been working with the grieving and the dying for 30 years in Toledo. As a counselor for Hospice of Northwest Ohio, he helps people navigate grief by educating them, listening to them and offering his own advice. “If you lose somebody, it’s tied up into pretty much everything,” Anderson said. “Grief is just a reaction people have to any kind of loss. There’s nothing more ... traumatic than a loss.” Anderson said he’s received many calls from people in the community who have suffered a loss by a traumatic event, including those involving children. He does counsel children and said they tend to have feelings of abandonment and confusion when someone close to them dies. They regress and act out in school, he said. Sometimes people don’t always know healthy ways to deal with death and grief. For example, Anderson said, after one mother died, her young children were told she simply had “went to sleep,” making the kids afraid to fall asleep.

“That’s not a good way to describe death,” Anderson said. “With kids, it is lots of love and support, support, support.” Experts say people experiencing grief can pass through a range of emotions, putting them on what many term an emotional roller coaster. A well-known study by researcher Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a pioneer on near-death and dying, said people in grief progress through five emotions: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. The roller coaster can also include shock and disbelief, fear, anxiety and sadness, counselors said. People don’t experience these emotions in any particular order, said Jeff Alvanos, a clinical social worker with Harbor, a nonprofit mental health center in Toledo. In fact, the normal path is to “skip around” and cycle through them, he said. Alvanos has a master’s degree in social work and has been practicing for 37 years, 27 of those at Harbor. He said he sees clients who report feeling disorganized and tired with trouble concentrating. Other common symptoms include sleeping poorly and feeling emotionally thin-skinned. Many report vivid dreams and changes in appetite. They feel emotionally vulnerable and ruminate about the loss, Alvanos said. Besides its more commonly known emotional components, grief has physical symptoms as well, such as fatigue, insomnia, sickness and weight loss or gain. Some people want to withdraw and isolate themselves, Alvanos said. The best medicine is to listen to a grieving person’s feelings and offer

support, he said. “Some people aren’t consciously aware how grief is affecting them, especially feelings of guilt,” he said. Grief doesn’t just happen when someone dies. It can happen when there is a loss of just about anything

we hold dear, such as a job, a relationship, a home or a pet. Private therapist Cheryl Kinnersley said she actually doesn’t see many people who are grieving the death of a loved one, but sees many people who are grieving the death of a marriage, a

relationship or a dream. Often, the person is in one stage in life, while believing they should be further along. Many struggle with suddenly having to become the decision-makers when dealing with their aging parents. n COUNSELORS CONTINUES ON 11

Talking about stillbirth helps cope with the loss

A

very pregnant Casey Gravelle woke up April 17, 2012, and didn’t remember feeling her baby moving the day before. But she has three kids and one was getting ready for a ballet recital. There were a lot of things going on. Perhaps Brandi she missed a kick. “Who wants to think that something bad is going on, especially when you already had three healthy children?” my friend said.

She tried laying down to see if she could get him to move. She thought she felt something, but wasn’t sure. She ate something. Again, she thought she felt movement. Casey hurried to get an appointment for that afternoon. The nurse kept BARHITE trying to find his heartbeat. She couldn’t find it. She and her husband, Emil, were moved to an exam room to try with the fetal Doppler. Still no heartbeat. n STILLBIRTH CONTINUES ON 12

n COUNSELORS CONTINUED FROM 10 In those cases, Kinnersley helps them understand their new role as caretaker, including what to expect and how to approach their parents in new ways. She also works with seniors who are dealing with the death of a spouse, many of whom have sold their home and moved to a new location and are overwhelmed by the many changes. “It’s a huge amount of grief, but

they don’t necessarily recognize it,” Kinnersley said. “People think someone has to have died. Not the case. It’s the realization that, ‘I’m not able to do things I used to do, I can’t make decisions.’” Kinnersley said the most important element of helping someone in grief is to listen to his or her story and help them find meaning in their loss. If it’s the loss of a loved one, she said she looks at pictures, attends funerals and views memo-

Sometimes the very best thing you can do is listen. Words sometimes are very hollow.” The biggest challenge in grief counseling is finding out how best to relate to the client because everyone is different and everyone deals with grief

differently, Kinnersley said. For Anderson, the biggest challenge is helping clients cut through denial. It takes time for the individual to come to a level of understanding and acceptance, he said. “There’s a lot of denial that goes along with [grief],” Anderson said. “Denial is funny. … It isn’t denial that someone is gone. The denial is more of something that happens in stages: ‘I can’t believe they’re gone,’ and over a period of time it breaks down until you realize this person is not part of your life anymore and they aren’t coming back.” Grief also has a spiritual component, which can include asking the “big questions.” “You get all these existential questions,” Anderson said. “People who have lost a spouse, a parent or a child start to ask, ‘Who am I?’ or ‘What am

I doing here on planet Earth?’ They can become quite angry at God or fear their own mortality.” Experts agree grief is a time to take good care of yourself. They recommend people stay connected to family and friends, go out to dinner or to a movie or join a support network to talk about what they are going through. Art, music and massage therapy are also good options. “When we’re in grief, we feel so abandoned and vulnerable,” Alvanos said. “It’s a great time to surround yourself with understanding loved ones.” It’s also important to eat a proper diet, exercise and stay involved in life, he said. “Talk to people, share what’s going on,” Anderson said. “Don’t abuse alcohol. There’s no way to avoid grief. It’s going to pop out one way or the other.” O

12 Coping: End of life issues n STILLBIRTH CONTINUED FROM 10 They were sent to a hospital for an ultrasound. Nothing. When she delivered Henry Lyle Gravelle on April 19, it appeared he had outgrown the placenta, which led to a series of problems. An autopsy would confirm that. He was otherwise a perfectly healthy boy at 35 weeks old. Casey said everyone copes with a stillbirth differently. “One of the best things was having caregivers who cared. Other mothers who experienced this didn’t have as good as care as we did.” At first, Casey said she focused on doing everything she could for Henry’s funeral. She made him a quilt, just as she had for her other babies. She and her husband bought him an outfit. “We were trying to save money, but I was like, ‘This is the only outfit we are going to buy him.’” Casey kept herself busy. She poured herself into her daughter’s recital. Then she focused on Henry’s funeral. Some comments did not help. “Do not tell me that God can only give us what we can handle. That is the stupidest saying ever!” Casey said. She also heard: “Maybe it is for the best.” Some people also told her: “At least you have other kids.” Casey struggled when friends who were pregnant at the same time gave birth, especially if they delivered boys. Fellow moms wanted play dates, but she wasn’t sure she wanted to be around other babies. She was thankful they understood and did not pressure her. She loved when people wanted to talk about Henry. “A lot of us like to talk about our angel children. If you want more than ‘OK,’ let us know that you are comfortable talking about our babies.” She also appreciated when people called Henry by his name. It acknowledged his existence. Casey said it is important that couples talk as well. “Communication between the two of you is incredibly important. You need to tell the other person what you need from them. Dads don’t want to talk about it because they don’t want to upset moms. I am not the only one who lost a child. The dad lost a child, too.” When the Gravelles welcomed another child this past April, the couple wanted to make sure people knew the girl, Ellenah, wasn’t replacing Henry. “There is a hole in this family where that person is not with us. He is still part of our family. It is not like a toy that you go and replace,” Casey said.

“Nobody wants to talk about it. You are talking about loss during a time of hope. You are losing a child; you are losing everything you had hoped for the child. No one wants to talk about that.”

“I thought all funeral homes conduct cremations the same. Boy, was I wrong.” Many people think all cremation providers are alike, until they hear terrible stories in the news about families who weren’t treated right. Our funeral home is the exclusive provider in our area to offer Cremation with Confidence™. This means we commit to a 10-step process in taking care of cremation. We are so committed, we offer the ™ Guarantee. And since we own and operate our own crematory, you can be sure your loved one is well cared for at all times.

— Casey Gravelle Casey said one of the hardest parts of coping with a stillbirth is that people avoid the subject. “Nobody wants to talk about it. You are talking about loss during a time of hope. You are losing a child; you are losing everything you had hoped for the child. No one wants to talk about that.” O

TRANSPORTATION

By Duane Ramsey

TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

John Robert Smith, chairman of Transportation for America, told the audience at the 2013 Passenger Rail Forum on Oct. 7 that there is hope for rail transportation in Northwest Ohio. “I see tremendous opportunity for rail transportation in Toledo and northern Ohio. You need to create a vision to inspire the community, making the impossible possible. Leaders need to support that vision for transportation,” Smith said at the Toledo Club. “Passenger rail is economic development. Don’t let the negative voices control your vision,” said Smith, who also serves as senior policy adviser for Smart Growth America. Smith spoke to the group about the power of rail station renovation as a way of revitalizing communities. He knows from experience as mayor of Meridian, Miss., where a traditional Union Station was rebuilt into a multimodal facility 20 years ago. “Quality design is critical for impact on the community,” said Smith, who reported that Meridian’s Union Station now hosts 250 events attracting 300,000 visitors annually. The station renovation project helped to generate $135 million in private development to revitalize Meridian’s downtown. That included facelifts for historic buildings, the renovation of City Hall and development of Dumont Plaza, a gathering place for the community. Smith said it also helped bring the restoration of the historic opera house in Meridian to create the Riley Center, a state-of-the-art performing arts and conference facility for Mississippi State University (MSU). Smith said it also brought about improvements in public housing and a public transit system of buses, vans and trolley cars. Smith continued his discussion of passenger rail transportation with a local panel that included Paul Toth, president of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority; Bill Thomas, CEO of the Downtown Toledo Development

Corporation; and Jerry Wicks, director of the Ohio Higher Education Rail Network. “We have a great train station. We’re getting more people living and walking Downtown and creating some connectivity with the train station,” Thomas said before asking Smith, “What’s the best way to jumpstart the revitalization of the station?” “There is a real disconnect to the Downtown, where you have some great buildings. Selling it to your own people is the hardest part. Share your vision better with the community,” Smith answered. “Where do the freight railroads sit on high-speed passenger rail?” Toth asked. “The freights are always going to resist high-speed rail and it’s [because of] their right of way. Acquisition of right of way and land capacity for rail infrastructure development is the key,” Smith replied.

“We’re trying to bring the universities together to meet their transportation needs with collaboration, partnerships and shared resources. They need systematic, reliable transportation,” Wicks said about his organization’s goals. Smith said that the university was not involved 20 years ago but MSU now has a conference center in Meridian. Passenger rail can serve students by providing transportation for them, he said. “We continue to focus on what our future is all about in Toledo and Northwest Ohio,” Toth said. “It’s all about the people who are served by transportation. It’s critical to engage for future generations,” Smith said. Smith toured the Toledo area and met with local leaders before speaking at the forum. He met with Toledo Mayor Mike Bell, who attended the forum and with the transportation committee of

the Bowling Green City Council. The forum is an annual meeting, where transportation advocates discuss issues involving the development of passenger rail service in Ohio, presented by the Northwest Ohio Passenger Rail Association (NOPRA) and Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG). “We continue a dialogue to move passenger rail forward in our region and nation. It’s very important to our region since Toledo continues to have the busiest passenger station in Ohio,” said Lucas County Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak, who moderated the forum. “Change is happening. It’s a painful and ugly process but it is needed. This is why it is so critical now,” said Richard Harnish, executive director of the Midwest High Speed Rail Association based in Chicago. Harnish discussed the multistate

Northern Corridor Initiative created to increase passenger rail service in several states, including Ohio. Tom Porter, chairman of NOPRA, which supports the Northern Corridor Initiative, said we need a “next step” for Toledo and Cleveland to build the corridor rail service across northern Ohio. Porter presented Harnish with a check for $8,000 to support that effort. Those funds included contributions from the City of Toledo, Lucas County, Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, The Andersons Rail Group, TMACOG and NOPRA. “We all work together as we have common goals,” said Ronald Sheck, chairman of All Aboard Ohio, a statewide organization that advocates high-speed rail. Sheck, who introduced Smith as the keynote speaker, first met him while traveling in the southeast when Smith was mayor of Meridian. O

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

Hockey season is right around the corner and for Toledo Walleye fans that means a season of cheering for both new and familiar faces at the Huntington Center. Practices started for the team Oct. 7, and head coach Nick Vitucci said the team is looking forward to the weeks ahead. “We’re obviously very excited,” Vitucci said. “Last year was a fun year for us, getting in the playoffs. Although we lost to Cincinnati in the first round, it was an exciting round. We showed a lot of fight, a lot of heart and it’s something we want to build on this coming year.” Vitucci said the first goal for the team is to get everyone comfortable and used to the Walleye approach. With half the players new to the roster, which Vitucci said is typical, the chemistry of the team may call for some initial adjustment. “The challenge is to get everybody as a unit of one rather than individually as 20,” Vitucci said. “That comes from finding the right players, not just talent-wise, but attitudewise and personality-wise.” Two of those new faces are not new to the Toledo area. Forwards Tyler Pilmore and Alden Hirschfeld are both from Sylvania. Pilmore played the last couple games of last season with the Walleye. Vitucci said he had attended the team’s free agent camp the previous year and was invited back. “He’s just a fantastic kid,” Vitucci said. “He works his tail off every day, and he’ll bring a lot of speed and a great work ethic to our lineup.” Hirschfeld played his first year professionally last year, split between the American Hockey League and the ECHL. Vitucci said he’s a highly skilled player with a great work ethic. “[He’s] another really good team person that we’re looking to add in our lineup and play in all key situations,” Vitucci said. The coach said he’s a little concerned about defense for the coming season. The Walleye lost strong player Wes O’Neill to retirement and Phil Oreskovic will miss the first few weeks of the season as he recovers from shoulder surgery. “There’s a question of how solid we’re going to be on that line, but we’re trying to work frantically to fix that and get the proper personnel in here,” he said. On the other hand, Vitucci said he is very enthusiastic about the entire forward unit this season. “I think it brings a lot of speed, a lot of skill, experience, but youthful enthusiasm, as well,” he said. The first season exhibition game is Oct. 12. Coach Vitucci said the coaching staff uses preseason games to observe the players they still want to evaluate outside of practice. Captains Kyle Rogers and Phil Oreskovic will be among the players to keep an eye on, as well as fan favorite Cody Lampl, Vitucci said. Fans can look forward to seeing several other returning players as well as some new faces. “A lot [of players] fans won’t be familiar with, but they’ll get familiar with in a hurry,” Vitucci said. Vitucci said the Walleye are fortunate to have a first-class organization and facility in Toledo, as well as support from the community. “We have great fan support,” he said. “We’re looking forward to putting a product on the ice that they can be proud of.” The home opener is Oct. 26 against the Wheeling Nailers. Fans can come early for the FinFest Pregame Party, which will feature a live band and a pep talk from Vitucci, or stay for a postgame party with the players. O

Former Northview teammates reunite on Walleye roster By Danielle Stanton

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

They were high school teammates at Sylvania Northview and now they are teammates again — this time for the Toledo Walleye. Alden Hirschfeld and Tyler Pilmore, both forwards on the Walleye roster for the 2013-14 season, said they are excited to be playing professional hockey for their hometown team. Pilmore, 24, made his pro debut late last season in the ECHL, playing six games with the Wheeling Nailers and two games with Toledo. Hirschfeld, 25, split his season between the American Hockey League’s (AHL) Providence Bruins and the ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays. The two reunited on the ice at Toledo’s training camp, which started Oct. 7 at the Huntington Center. “Obviously, it’s really special to be getting to do what you always dreamed of doing and getting to do it

in your hometown,” Hirschfeld said. “My wife is also from this area so it’s nice to get to experience it and enjoy it together. … I’m pretty calm but obviously I’m excited too. I’m anxious to get started playing games.” “It’s a little chaotic right now but I’m getting used to everything,” Pilmore said. “It’s a huge step. ... I’m anxious to play for my hometown. ... It’s nerve-racking but definitely exciting at the same time.” After graduating from Sylvania Northview in 2006, Hirschfeld played junior hockey in Youngstown and then got a scholarship to Miami University in Oxford. Pilmore graduated from Northview in 2008 and went on to play for Ohio University. Hirschfeld remembers a standout game his freshman year when the Miami Red Hawks lost the national championship game to Boston University in overtime. “It was crazy,” he said. “We were up 3 to 1. We gave up two goals at the end. It was tough.”

During his first drill on the first day of practice for Miami his freshman year, Hirschfeld broke his forearm on the goal post. He toughed it out through the practice, he said, because he didn’t want the school to think they had recruited some “wimp.” Later, after he couldn’t untie his skates, he went for an X-ray and discovered the break. He said it doesn’t give him any problems today, but he can still feel where it healed. Hirschfeld played in 134 games in four seasons with the Redhawks. He scored 35 goals and had 35 assists. He was assistant captain his junior year, captain his senior year and was a member of the 2011 Central Collegiate Hockey Association championship team. In high school, he played in the state championship game and was named Mr. Hockey in 2006, an award for the best high school player in Ohio. Hirschfeld scored eight goals and eight assists between his time in Providence and South Carolina last season. He played in one game with the AHL’s

Portland Pirates after his senior year. “Alden has good size and scoring punch,” said Walleye head coach Nick Vitucci in a news release. “He is a very smart hockey player that collected a lot of experience in his first pro season. He has the ability to play at the next level and will perform well here in Toledo.” Pilmore graduated from Ohio University this year with a degree in finance. He said he plans to take his hockey career one year at a time and hopes to use his degree one day. The Walleye signed him this summer after he attended a free agent camp. Pilmore has been playing hockey since he was 4 years old. He learned to skate at a rink in Adrian and then at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter. In high school, he won the league playoffs. In college, he was first-team All-American his senior year, second-team AllAmerican his junior year and thirdteam All-American his sophomore year. He holds records at Ohio University for most points (227) and most as-

sists (161) in the school’s history. Hirschfeld started playing hockey when he was 3. His family told him they knew he had a thing for hockey when he stood staring at a hockey game on television, screaming when someone changed the channel. Soon after, he joined a “mom and me” skating class with his mother at Tam-O-Shanter and then worked with a coach. Neither player has any injuries, just the usual aches and pains, they said. Hirschfeld’s wife, Lauren, is always concerned about his teeth, however, because he doesn’t wear a face mask. “She’s always yelling at me to wear a mouth guard,” he said. The Walleye take the ice at Huntington Center on Oct. 12 for a preseason exhibition game against the Kalamazoo Wings. The home opener is Oct. 26 against the Wheeling Nailers.

Toledo Walleye 17

A Toledo tradition since 2005

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

Every year the Walleye Opening Night celebration gets bigger and better, said Michael Keedy, manager of special events for the Toledo Walleye. “It’s been fun to watch the progression,” Keedy said. “It’s been fun to see how it’s become one of the biggest Downtown parties of the year and we’re going to keep going down that path.” The first home Walleye game of the season is Oct. 26. FinFest, the annual pregame party, is set for 4:30 p.m. at The Aquarium at the Huntington Center. “We’ve done FinFest before every Opening Night and it’s gotten better and better,” Keedy said. “It’s just a big party. The Aquarium has garage doors, which will be open so it will be indoors and outdoors.” FinFest will feature live music from The Bradberries, drink specials, face painting, glitter tattoo artists, a photobooth and giveaways. Head coach Nick Vitucci will speak to fans to welcome the new season.

The game starts at 7:15 p.m. and Keedy said fans will want to be in their seats early. The first 4,000 fans will get blue or gold glow wands. “We did this last year, too. We shut off all the lights when we announce the team and it’s a great effect [with the wands],” Keedy said. “We’ll also have a special pyro display with flames shooting up near the Spike tunnel when players are announced and, with the glow wands, it’s going to be a really, really cool atmosphere.” After the game, 5,000 magnet schedules will be handed out. There will also be a party with the players in the club-level lounge open to anyone with a game ticket.

A squadron of X-wing pilots will take on the Dark Side next month when the Toledo Walleye host a “A New Hope: Star Wars Night” on Nov. 2. The Walleye will wear X-Wing jerseys while the visiting Kalamazoo Wings will wear Darth Vader jerseys, said Michael Keedy, manager of special events for the Walleye. “That’s the most exciting part,” Keedy said. “I can’t confirm this 100 percent, but it might be the first time in league history KEEDY that both teams have been outfitted in themed jerseys. The designs are really cool. We’re extremely excited about it.” Both sets of jerseys will be auctioned for charity after the game. Proceeds from the X-Wing jerseys will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and proceeds from the Darth Vader jerseys will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. More than a dozen Star Wars characters will be at the game. There will also be Star Wars-themed merchandise, music and food and beverage options, such as Yoda Soda, Boba Fettuccine and

a Chewbacca bacon burger, Keedy said. Fans are encouraged to wear costumes. There will be costume cams and prizes for the best costumes, Keedy said. Chris Blackstock of Chesterfield, Mich., will be there — and hard to miss. He will be wearing a Chewbacca costume complete with 15-inch stilts that make him 7 feet, 7 inches tall. Blackstock has been part of international Star Wars costuming organizations 501st Legion (for the “bad guys”) and the Rebel Legion (for the “good guys”) for about five years. Participants have to have their costumes approved for accuracy and, as part of an agreement with Lucas Films, cannot charge for appearances. In the past, Blackstock has portrayed a stormtrooper and Darth Vader, but said he likes Chewbacca best. “Chewbacca is just too much fun,” he said. “Darth Vader has to be scary and imposing all the time. Chewie can have fun. I can mess around with people — high-five the kids, hug the pretty girls.” Blackstock made his own costume by weaving together strands of synthetic hair. There are only about 35 approved Chewbacca costumes in the world, he said. The next closest Chewie is in Milwaukee. He once met Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewie and who complimented his costume. “[He and his wife] were both very complimentary on how it looked,”

Blackstock said. “We are about as accurate and authentic looking as you’re going to get.” Yes, he makes the Wookiee noise. “I get asked all the time, ‘Can you make the noise?’” Blackstock said. “I do. It just adds to the whole thing.”

Beatles Night

Another new promotion will be a Beatles Tribute Night on Feb. 1, in honor of the band's Feb. 9, 1964, debut performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show," Keedy said. The night will include Beatlesthemed food and drinks as well as live performances from The BackBeats, a Beatles tribute band. “That's going to be a lot of fun," Keedy said. "They will be playing throughout the night. It’s going to be a great hockey game as well as a concert experience in the arena that night."

Storm jerseys

For Hockey Heritage Weekend on Feb. 21-22, the Walleye will wear Toledo Storm jerseys on both nights. “We expect this to be very popular with longtime hockey fans,” Keedy said. “We will have a few surprises for Storm fans.”

Ugly sweaters

Dec. 28 is Ugly Sweater Night. Fans are encouraged to wear ugly sweaters and the Walleye will be wearing ugly sweater jerseys. n PROMOTIONS CONTINUES ON 19

n PROMOTIONS CONTINUED FROM 18 “We will not release the design ahead of time. The first time fans will see them will be when they enter the ice that night,” Keedy said. “We’re just telling fans they will be wearing the ugliest sweater in sports history.”

Pink in the Rink

Pink in the Rink, featuring dyed pink ice and dedicated to breast cancer awareness and fundraising, is set for March 1-2. The ice will be dyed green March 15-16 for St. Patrick’s Day. The Walleye will wear green jerseys on March 15 and there will be green beer specials and live Irish music playing during both games. Nov. 23 is the annual Teddy Bear Toss, where fans throw stuffed animals on the ice after the first Walleye goal. The toys are then distributed to children by Lucas County Children Services and the Toledo Police. “The fans really get into that one,” Keedy said. “Our goal is to have a

packed house that night and everybody have a teddy bear to toss. It’s a really fun event for a really great cause.” Also on Nov. 23 is the third annual Battle of the Badges game, pitting Toledo Police against Toledo Fire and Rescue. Fans who buy a Walleye game ticket also get into the Battle of the Badges game. A portion of proceeds will benefit police and fire charities.

Doubleheader

On April 4, the Toledo Mud Hens will host Opening Day at 4 p.m. followed by a Walleye game at 7:15 p.m. “Last year there was a Walleye playoff game and a Mud Hens game on the same night,” Keedy said. “We're staggering the start times so we can have a true doubleheader Downtown. We anticipate that being an extremely popular night.”

A Toledo tradition since 2005 buffet, a souvenir glass, a raffle ticket for door prizes and a game ticket, Keedy said. Dates are Nov. 29, Dec. 28 and March 14. “We highlight a different brand every event, so if you were to come to two events or all three, there will be

A frozen banana dipped in chocolate and bacon bits, tater tots served like nachos, a cheddar IPA burger and a new craft beer station will be among the new dining options for Walleye fans this season. Scott Fuernstein, general manager of food and beverage at Huntington Center, said his staff strives to create fun, new refreshment experiences for Toledo hockey fans each year. “The planning process begins at the

end of each season for the upcoming year,” Fuernstein said. “We try to pay attention to what’s popular, what does well and what our fans are looking for.” Fuernstein expects the “baconana” to be popular. “It’s served on a stick so it’s something you can walk around with and enjoy,” Fuernstein said. “It’s kind of fun and unique. Bacon goes with everything. We were just trying to do something fun and something a little bit different for the fans.” Totchos are “tator tots dressed like nachos,” Fuernstein said. n FOOD CONTINUES ON 21

Finz, a new concession venue, will feature a rotating selection of five craft beefs on draft as well as half a dozen bottled beers, Fuernstein said. The

craft beers will include Maumee Bay Brewing Co., Goose Island Brewery, Frankenmuth Brewery, Yuengling and more, Fuernstein said. “That’s a brand new location we’re pretty excited about,” Fuernstein said. “There will be stools there where you can hang out, have a seat, have a nice craft beer and there’s a TV if you want to continue to watch the game.

For more health-conscious fans, a new chicken salad wrap will offer chicken salad with sundried tomatoes, shredded cheese and fresh dill in a flour tortilla wrap. “If you want to come to a game and get something healthier, there are definitely options for you,” Fuernstein said. For dessert, there will be two new Toft’s ice cream sundaes: peanut butter banana crunch and caramel mocha. There will also be a new Cherry Pepsi float. “The dessert piece is always big for us,” Fuernstein said. In all, there are about a dozen new food items being debuted this season, Fuernstein said.

One new dish from last year — white cheddar macaroni and cheese, which can be served plain or topped with bacon, blue cheese, pulled pork and more — will return this year as a fan favorite, Fuernstein said. “We thought it would do well, but we were just overwhelmed by the response on that,” Fuernstein said.

be provided. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds to benefit EMBCC and CCNWO. Sarah Beavers, executive director at EMBCC, said the chamber’s mission is to help local businesses improve the quality of life and general welfare of the Eastern Maumee Bay community, which encompasses East Toledo, Oregon, Walbridge and Jerusalem Township. EMBCC has more than 200 members and offers a variety of services to its members and the community. “A lot of small businesses need advertising but they may not have a big budget, so they need avenues and education on new ways to market their business,” Beavers said. EMBCC also assists businesses with securing affordable insurance, a hot topic with current changes in American health care law, Beavers added. As an entity with no ties to any governmental agency, EMBCC is strictly membership-based, and its interests lie in the overall success of the Eastern Maumee Bay community, Beavers said. “We make sure you can live, work, play and worship in the area,” she said. “The goal is to assist the community in general.” EMBCC decided to team up with CCNWO for the event after initial meetings between the two groups revealed common interests. “They were trying to get hooked up with the community and network,” Beavers said. “We all clicked so well, and we really enjoy what they do and their mission. They keep everything specifically local. You don’t give them money and it goes to somewhere in California and trickles back. When you give to Cancer Connection, you’re giving to something that’s going to stay in the area.”

Beavers hopes Oktoberfest will bring some new faces into both groups’ networks, and added that, if nothing else, a good time will be had. “There will be lots of fun, lots of dancing and a nice atmosphere to raise a little awareness for Cancer Connection, and to just enjoy the night.”

Cut for cancer

Anthony Beck, singer and guitarist of Captain Sweet Shoes, will take bids to cut his hair, which is more than a foot long. Beck will then donate the locks to Children With Hair Loss, a nonprofit that provides free hair replacement to children who’ve lost their own due to illness. “I’ve had people in my life taken by cancer, as most people have,” Beck said. “I watched my grandma lose her battle with it when I was in high school. One of the things that has always stuck with me was how little she looked like herself during her battle. It was difficult to deal with on my end. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be the person looking in the mirror at those changes.” Beck said donating his hair is one way for him to give back without the means to donate large amounts of money to fund research. “I work two jobs so I have limited time and can’t do charity work as often as I’d truly like to. However, I’ve always been able to grow an insane amount of hair. I figured this is what I can do, and I better do it before it all turns gray or starts falling out.” Beck said he chose Children With Hair Loss as his charity because of recommendations from friends and its reputation for providing hairpieces to children with cancer. “We all remember how difficult being a kid [can] be. Dealing with hair loss at that age is just one more reason for a child to have unnecessary selfesteem issues.” O

Cole still passionate By Vicki L. Kroll

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer vkroll@toledofreepress.com

Music and family are intertwined for Paula Cole. “I was just this natural canary and I loved singing. And my dad made music on many instruments; he made it fun in the home,” she recalled. “So we were harCOLE monizing as a family; it was a living art form, and that allowed me to fly.” On her new disc “Raven,” the singer-songwriter’s powerful, passionate voice soars. She penned the opening track, “Life Goes On,” for her father. “It took 15 years to get the courage to release this song. I wrote this in the late ’90s, and he was the first to hear it,” Cole said. “It’s a reflection of our relationship, of all of the dynamics, from the early volcanic years to softer, gentler years where he becomes a kind, gentle, older man. And I think that’s kind of the universal path if men are on the right path.” Words from her grandmother led to “Strong Beautiful Woman.” “I grew up in Rockport, Mass., kind of the quintessential small-town New England, and [my grandma] is in that song because I used to run down the hill to her house, and she gave me very smart, sassy life advice and that was something she’d say to me,” Cole said. “It’s even become a little mantra for me now to my girlfriends; I’ll say, ‘You’re a strong beautiful woman/ Don’t

let the world let you down/ Look within yourself and remember who you are.’” Cole’s extended family of fans made “Raven” possible. More than 900 people contributed to reach more than $75,000 in just over a month through Kickstarter. “It was daunting to have to go forward and ask,” she said during a call from her home in Beverly, Mass. “My fans were there for me — I had 150 percent of my ask. What this allowed me to do was not only cover my cost but set up a small home label so that I would not have to even approach a major label for licensing.” That made the Grammy Award winner happy. “I want to own my pie because it is a smaller pie; it’s not the ’90s pie, it’s not pre-digital distribution pie, it’s post-digital. We make less income on music. My career is humbler after my hiatus,” she said. “This Fire,” Cole’s 1996 disc, burned up the charts with “I Don’t Want to Wait” and “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” “I had a big kick in the pants with life, you know, in my 30s and that’s when I disappeared, really, on an eight-year hiatus when I had my daughter and then she had asthma, a bad marriage — it just took time to extract myself, for her to grow up and be healthy, and for me to be able to work again,” the artist said. Cole will take the stage at Oct. 19 at The Ark in Ann Arbor. Tickets are $25. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. “It’s taken me years to be in a comfortable place on stage where I am prefacing the songs with stories. [Audience members] ask me questions; we talk. I meet with fans after shows; to me, that’s act two, that’s equally important as the show itself.” O
