Endorsements, pt. 1

T

here are a number of critical issues and contests facing Lucas County voters Nov. 2, and while Toledo Free Press will not attempt to encapsulate every race and issue, we will use this space for the next two weeks to offer our thoughts and endorsements. n Issue 7: This is a renewal of a 1 mill, 10-year levy for the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA). It is not a new tax. Established in 1971, TARTA has 34 routes and serves nine communities in northwestern Ohio. TARTA provides an essential service for many county residents, and we support renewal of this levy. The organization stumbled in its efforts to switch its funding to a sales tax and will have to examine its future carefully as the local population shifts, but there is no argument that TARTA provides a muchneeded transportation lifeline. n Governor: There are four men running for Ohio governor, but Republican John Kasich is our choice for trying to stop Ohio’s economic slide. Kasich’s experience Thomas F. Pounds in the U.S. House Budget Committee and his JobsOhio proposal, which seeks direct input from business owners and more responsibility on private enterprise, offers a clear logic that trumps unfulfilled promises. n Secretary of State: Democrat Maryellen O’Shaughnessy, the clerk of Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, has served as a three-time Columbus City Council member and owns a small business, her family’s fourth-generation funeral home. She is running on a platform that is inclusive and comprehensive. She understands how the secretary of state office can impact economic development by making it easier (or more difficult) for businesses to register to do business in Ohio and navigate its resources, and she has our vote for this important office. n U.S. House District 5: Republican Bob Latta has been a consistent voice in the House and has proven to be remarkably accessible, offering pre- and post-vote reasoning with an accountability rare in many of his counterparts. He is the clear choice in this contest. n State House of Representatives District 46: Republican Barbara Sears, the incumbent in this race, has earned endorsements from a wide array of organizations — farmers, CPAs, real estate agents, nurses, restaurant owners and the Toledo and Ohio chambers of commerce — which demonstrates her effectiveness as a representative. We agree with the chambers and endorse Sears. n State House of Representatives District 48: While independent Schylar Meadows has our attention and is an emerging community leader, this round of political musical chairs goes to current city councilman and Democrat Michael Ashford, who will take with him to Columbus the community savvy and persuasiveness that have characterized his time in office.

everal months ago, in the pages of this publication, former Lucas County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon predicted horrific violence for county residents now that he was no longer at the helm of the department (“Former dog warden warns:  watch out for the pit bulls,” May 23). Alarmingly, Skeldon stated that “this spring, summer, fall, here in Toledo, there will be a number of people mauled, maimed, disfigured and there may be somebody killed by a pit bull.”   Never one to shy away from hyperbole, Skeldon ominously pronounced that “the word is out in Toledo — the dog warden [Julie Lyle] is no longer enforcing the laws and we can do what we want.” Thankfully, and not surprisingly, Skeldon’s doomsday scenario failed to materialize. In fact, quite the opposite actually occurred. Under new leadership at the pound, dog attacks in Lucas County have declined in the past four months when compared to the average of the last four years under Skeldon. From June to September of this year, under new warden Julie Lyle, there were 173 reported Ben KONOP dog attacks. During the same four-month period in 2006-09 under Skeldon, there was an average of 176 attacks. Although the decrease in violence under Lyle is slight, as any attack is certainly one too many for the victim, the data shows that Skeldon’s fear mongering was unwarranted. While, according to the data, public safety has improved under the new leadership at the pound, the greatest gains have come in the area of adoptions. Tragically, under the Skeldon regime, 183 healthy, “non-pit bull” puppies were killed by the warden between 2007 and 2009. My colleague, Commissioner Pete Gerken, whom Skeldon called the only person that “stood up” for him, has repeatedly stated that adoptions were not Skeldon’s “charge.” This out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude, from the top down in county government, directly led to the deaths of thousands of innocent dogs, including hundreds of puppies. Thankfully, the new dog warden has shown that public safety and humane treatment of animals are not mutually exclusive. In September, for example, Lyle adopted out 57 dogs as compared to an average of 19 in the same month during the last four years of the Skeldon era. Lyle has doubled the live-release rate at the dog pound as well, by increasing the transfer of dogs to area rescue groups and the Toledo Area Humane Society. The department also has a fledgling program that reunites owners with their pets in the field rather than automatically taking a loose dog into the pound. Long term, the dog warden is looking at large-scale efforts to promote spay and neuter programs — probably the most important piece in the puzzle of lowering euthanasia rates. These innovations and others, many of them championed by the capable and steadfast Dog Warden Advisory Committee, are getting real results that will continue to make dog lovers and our entire county proud. But the old guard did not go down without a fight. When a committed group of dog lovers, known as 4 Lucas County Pets, began its quest to change the dog warden, it met immense resistance. In fact, my natural inclination was to side with the status quo when I first heard complaints about Skeldon’s tactics. Thankfully, the citizen group didn’t give up when I was not as helpful as I ought to have been, and it kept plugging away. The group’s case was driven by data, logic and compassion. Eventually, it won me over, and together we accomplished something positive. I believe this process can serve as a good model for reforming other aspects of the community. There is no shortage of areas of local government that are ripe for reform. The intertwining issues of job creation, poverty reduction and education — and the corresponding governmental entities that are tasked with addressing these issues — are at the top of my list. But little will be done to tackle these challenges unless there is systemic change led by involved citizens and backed by elected officials who aren’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers. The marked improvements in the dog warden’s department show that change in our community is possible. The fear mongering of the status quo can be overcome. We can see tangible improvement, in a relatively small amount of time, if we are willing to forge ahead, despite the formidable obstacles of entrenched interests circling their wagons and preaching doomsday scenarios. And we probably don’t have any other choice but to forge ahead. Ben Konop is a Lucas County Commissioner.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Disappointed and irritated

A

fter reading Michael S. Miller’s Oct. 17 editorial “Iott should exit, stage reich,” I had to say I was more than a little disappointed, not to mention irritated. As the editor of The Best Weekly Newspaper in Ohio (for two straight years), how dare he insult the intelligence of his readers, as he did in his article? Does he really believe that we can’t separate a person’s acting from his or her true character? I suppose that Tom Cruise is also a Nazi, since he played one in “Valkyrie”; George Clooney is an expert thief (“Ocean’s 11”); and through some kind of movie-picture magic Ray Romano is really a woolly mammoth, since his voice was used for Dock TREECE one in the children’s movie “Ice Age.” The typical Toledo Free Press reader is more intelligent than that, and we would hope that the typical voter is smarter than that. One of the greatest presidents in the history of our country was a professional actor. And yet leftists seem to conveniently forget that longtime U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Va.) was not only a member of the Ku Klux Klan, but a recruiter and leader on the local level. Furthermore, while we may not be the closest of friends, I think I know Miller well enough to say with relative certainty that he is not clairvoyant, and he does not know Mr. Iott’s inner thoughts. Only God knows man’s inner thoughts, so he seem to be holding himself in very high esteem. I wish someone would tell me just what has happened to this country. How is it that a bona fide war hero who was tortured for years (only to be made fun of for it while campaigning) loses a presidential election to a community organizer who has no credentials and has admitted to using cocaine? And now Miller would rather see the voters of this district re-elect a corrupt career politician over a smart businessman with a love for history? For shame! In the interest of fair, unbiased journalism, I would ask that Toledo Free Press run an article showing pictures of other reenactments in which Mr. Iott has taken part, as well as some of his other accomplishments and contributions to the community. For the press to publish and dwell on just one controversial photo, rather than tell the whole story, is exactly the type of thing Toledo Free Press has stood against in the past, and it should again now.

TO THE EDITOR, It is with much regret that I write to express these thoughts. When Toledo Free Press first started, I had great hopes for a real counterpoint perspective to The Blade. But I have not been as disappointed before as after reading Michael S. Miller’s Oct. 17 Iott hit piece. Northwest Ohio is already a national joke, being run exclusively for the benefit of all the local unions. So the national press has picked up on this Nazi story. Surprise, surprise, like you couldn’t figure out the mainstream media was going to go after any GOP member like rabid dogs. Where was the media for years, with Robert Byrd being a KKK member (probably with pictures available)? Our area’s well-being is being sacrificed to a socialist rubber stamp, like Marcy Kaptur, because you can’t find the backbone to write a piece ala’ Tim Higgins (“Out of uniform,” Oct. 17). Sure, Iott was foolish to participate in those circumstances. But Kaptur was stupid to compare the terrorists to “The Green Mountain Boys.” No national hissy fit over that one? We’re already saddled with a Blade-selected GOP chairman. It would be nice if you could help in our area’s resurrection, rather than helping dig the grave deeper. It’s really a good thing your paper is free, or I would stop taking it.

SOCIAL ISSUES

By Sarah Ottney TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

When David Smith was diagnosed with prostate cancer after showing signs of it during a free medical screening last fall at Tent City, he was stunned. “In my wildest dreams, I did not imagine that,” Smith said. “The doctor said cancer and I wasn’t registering that yet. I was thinking positive up to that moment ... I started crying at that moment. But luckily it was caught early.” The 47-year-old was one of the hundreds of Toledoans who visited Tent City’s Project Homeless Connect last year to obtain free medical services, meals, showers, haircuts, clothing, flu shots, IDs and other services. After his exam showed an enlarged prostate, Smith had a biopsy, which revealed stage-two cancer. When Smith first visited Tent City five years ago, he was homeless and addicted to drugs and alcohol. Thanks to the help and encouragement he received there and from other local organizations, Smith has been sober and living in his own apartment for two years. Since his surgery earlier this year, he can add cancer-free and employed to the list. “I just have to be thankful that Tent City was there,” Smith said. “I’ve had a lot of bad days, but ... my health is getting better. I’m so grateful, I really am.” Organizers said this year’s Tent City will be bigger and better than ever. “The campus is expanding, services are expanding, I think it just keeps getting better every year,” said Pastor Steve North, founder of LifeLine Ministries. Tent City founder Ken Leslie said volunteer response has been huge as usual and nearly all slots have been filled. The weekend-long event will kick off with a cookout at 5 p.m. Oct. 29, at the Civic Center Mall in Downtown Toledo. Project Homeless Connect will be followed by a barbecue dinner and entertainment. On Oct. 31, a pancake breakfast followed by a worship service will wrap up the weekend. Tent City, an all-volunteer event founded in 1990 and restarted in 2006 after a six-year hiatus, is sponsored by  Cherry Street Mission Ministries, Mildred Bayer Clinic for the Homeless, Mercy Health Partners and Toledo Area Ministries. In 2007, singer John Mellencamp visited Tent City while in Toledo; the event was the impetus for Leslie to found 1Matters, the group that organizes Tent City. Leslie, a longtime advocate for the unhoused, said there are a lot of misconceptions about homelessness. “When you say homeless, you think of those people you see in the street,” Leslie said. “Those are the chronically homeless. They only represent 15 percent of the homeless in America, but they represent 100 percent in our mind.” Only when you include people like those who are doubled- or tripled-up in one home because they can’t afford housing on their own do you start to realize the full scope of the problem, Leslie said. ■ TENT CITY CONTINUES ON A8

1Mile Matters walk debuts at Tent City By Kristen Rapin TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR krapin@toledofreepress.com

The first 1Mile Matters walk in support of local unhoused kicks off during Tent City 2010. “This year we’re attempting to bring a little more visibility to the plight of homelessness,” said Karen Soubeyrand, chairwoman of the walk. “This is a problem that can be solved, or at least we can gain some footing, if we work together as a community.” The walk was added to Tent City activities as a way for more individuals to get involved and help out with the unhoused, said Ken Leslie, founder of 1Matters. “One of our biggest problems [at Tent City] was having too many volunteers, so we were trying to think of a way we could engage more people,” he said. The 1Mile Matters walk benefits 1Matters and its partners, including Toledo Streets, LifeLine Ministries medical mobile, Food for Thought and Cherry Street Mission Ministries. ■ 1MILE CONTINUES ON A8

TENT CITY

By Ken Leslie SPECIAL TO TOLEDO FREE PRESS

Ken Leslie:  We first met two years ago when you made an unpromoted stop at the annual Tent City Project Homeless Connect in Toledo. You just wanted them to know they matter. Bob Merlis [Mellencamp’s publicist] told me you were touched by the experience. How so? John Mellencamp:  When you see what progress can produce, and also what progress can discard, it makes a feller wonder … calling it progress does not make it right. In this country right now there is no middle class, no place for middle class. You are either really rich or you are really down and out. It’s hard times in this country right now. KL:  When you were on stage at Tent City, you spontaneously decided to invite everybody there to your concert, all of the unhoused people.  JM:  Right.  KL:  About 70 people went and I understand you talked to them from the stage about hope. As you know, one of the guests came back from the show and said “Ken, John talked to us from the stage — I guess I really do matter.” That was the founding moment of 1Matters and actually that’s why we’re here. Your whole career, you’ve had the compassion for and worked for those with little or no voice. What is the root of that compassion; where does it come from? Was there something in your childhood that started this feeling of compassion? JM:  Well for me, it started with race. I was in a band when I was 13, 14 years old and it was the mid-’60s and it was a racially mixed band. I was the lead singer and this black kid was a singer. He was a couple years older than me, really good. We’d play every weekend at fraternities and in hotels and stuff like that. It was a soul band. And I saw the way people treated him. It was like, ‘wow, really?’ Wait a minute, you loved him on stage but now he’s gotta go wait outside? And so I think that made quite an impression on me as a young guy.  KL: How’d you respond? JM:  Well, there were times that there were fistfights. I remember in a little town in Indiana there was a fistfight in between one of our breaks because of his race. So, you know.  KL: Since then, you’ve carried on standing up for farmers, for the people. JM: Well, I’m Sisyphus myself; I’m always the guy who’s rolling the

rock up the hill, and every time I get too close to the top, I either let it roll back down on purpose or it just rolls back, catches on fire and rolls down at someone. So I know what it’s like to have to work at something. My struggle is obviously different than some folks’ struggle, but, nevertheless, we all have our problems.  KL:  How would you define your struggle? JM: I’ll answer it like this:  A man writes to what he strives to be, not what he is.  KL: When I was unhoused and living in my car, you nailed the feeling of hopelessness in “Graceful Fall”: “It’s not a graceful fall from dreams to truth, there’s not a lot of hope if you got nothing to lose.”   Since 2007, foreclosures and job losses increased the number of families in shelters nearly 30 percent. Each night there are 640,000 unhoused Americans who have lost domestic autonomy and are living on the streets and in shelters, 15 percent are veterans. As you did from the stage in Toledo, what are your words of hope to all of our brothers and sisters who are living on the streets of our country? JM:  Wow, that’s a big question, that’s an awfully big question … See,

the problem is, most people give up too early and I’m not talking about just the people on the street. I’m just talking about people in general. They give up on relationships too early, they give up on themselves too early, they give up on life too early. I mean I’ve been writing that since I was a kid. In the song called “Jack and Diane,” you know they were only 16 and already giving up. People just give up too early, they just quit, you know, “this is too hard,” or, “I don’t wanna do this anymore.” I think that’s a problem, and I think that’s a problem our country has. Over the decades it was allowed to happen by the work ethic and through capitalism, a lot of things that affect this country that allow people to think that way, that the world owes them a living. And as soon as you start thinking that somebody owes you something, forget it man, you’re done. And as soon as you start thinking you’re right and everybody else is wrong ... It’s like the guy who was married six or seven times, hell, I think it might be me ... I think this could be me, I’m starting to think this is my problem.

“[The walk] will be a way people can come together as a community, to tell not only the members in our community, but the world that everyone does matter,” Leslie said. Singer John Mellencamp provided the inspiration for 1Matters after he appeared at Tent City in November 2007 and took individuals to his concert, Leslie said. “After the concert, one of the guys came back and said, ‘John talked to us from the stage. I guess I really do matter, don’t I?’ How could anyone not know in God’s great world that they matter? So that’s how 1Matters was founded,” Leslie said. 1Matters works to provide employment, shelter or services to the unhoused locally and is building a national campaign to help the unhoused. “I view us and our role like football players. A player may get knocked down and I’ll offer a hand to help him get back up, but I’m not going to play his game for him. That’s the difference between a handout and a hand up,” Leslie said. Mellencamp has continued to show support to the unhoused by recording public service announcements for Tent City, 1Mile Matters and World Homeless Day. The singer also granted an exclusive interview to be used in street papers across the United States.

“I think John believes the issue of domestic autonomy is critical for people to be the masters of their own fate. He is supportive of efforts where they can have a fresh start,” said Bob Merlis, the singer’s publicist. Mellencamp has provided four tickets to his Nov. 19 show at the Fox Theatre in Detroit and the chance to

meet him for the leading fundraiser of the walk. Additional prizes are available for other top fundraisers. Registration begins at 10 a.m. with the walk at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 30. The roughly 1-mile walk goes from Promenade Park to Tent City in a zigzag path because “life isn’t straight.” The walk concludes with lunch.

Individuals can register online or the day of the walk. Those who raise at least $25 will receive a T-shirt. To show support the walk, Leslie has recruited nearly every local media outlet, including Toledo Free Press, to be a sponsor. To register for the race and learn more, visit www.1matters.org.

Success stories like Smith’s are what keep Tent City’s organizers going in the face of discouraging statistics, like a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report that found that the number of families with children homeless due to foreclosure and job loss rose 30 percent between 2007 and 2009. North and Leslie, both of whom were once homeless themselves, said Tent City is about building relationships and challenging perceptions. “Tent City is important to me because this is the group of people I came here for, this is the issue that makes my heart beat fast and keeps my adrenaline pumping through long days and short nights,” North said. “In the end, everything we do is revolved around relationships, especially those who are isolated, neglected, kicked to the curb, stereotyped. “This is a way of injecting dignity back into people from whom it’s been stripped, a way of recognizing the value of every person and engaging people in not just a shove a tray across a counter or a professional way, this is about really engaging and spending time and getting to know other people and letting them get to know you and having a genuine relationship where trust can be built and where help can be given and accepted.” For information, visit the website www.1matters.org.

REPLACE YOUR MATTRESS EVERY 5-7 YEARS!* – Saturday Evening Post

*How long a mattress will last depends on several factors, such as amount of use and original quality, but in general, a mattress set that has been in use 5-7 years is no longer providing you with the best comfort and support. It’s a good idea to compare the mattress and foundation you are sleeping on now to newer models every few years.

Signs that you may need a new mattress: 1. You wake up with stiffness, numbness or aches and pains. 2. Your mattress shows visible signs of overuse (sags, lumps, etc.) 3. Your mattress is 5-7 years old

Others honored were Ken Leslie of 1Matters, who has advocated for Toledo’s homeless population for more than 20 years; Lucy Russell, “a tireless volunteer for a myriad of community service initiatives;” Woody and Judy Trautman of the Northwest Ohio Multi-Faith Council, “an elderly couple with a vision for multifaith cooperation and peace;” and Dan Rogers, president and CEO of Cherry Street Mission Ministries, according to a news release. The awards are given to innovative thinkers who serve and lead by example, said Steve North, director of outreach ministry at the SLC. “[The SLC is] about identifying systemic ways of dealing with injustice LUDWIG rather than just incidental ways,” North said. “So rather than people concerned with a particular case, we’re concerned with root issues and solutions. We’re looking for people who exemplify that kind of outlook and approach.” All the honorees not only respond to community needs personally, but work to get others involved, North said. “In the end, no real solution comes about without bringing people together. That’s the kind of thing that’s really inspiring, motivating and, in the end, transformative to their communities and ultimately the world,” North said. “These people demonstrate these things with their lives. None of them are satisfied with status quo answers.” Ludwig’s passion for social justice issues was sparked after participating in Four Point Five, the SLC’s poverty immersion experience for highschoolers, where the students spend four and a half days experiencing poverty and homelessness, including visiting migrant worker camps, spending a day with a homeless squatter, dumpster-diving for food and eating at a soup kitchen. “It totally changed my life ... it was an eye-opener,” Ludwig said. “I live in the country. I knew about homelessness obviously, but never thought it was right in my community. And Four Point Five just kind of opened my eyes and changed my life. It’s just, you don’t think about it until you actually see it.” Since then, he has worked to recruit other teens to be a part of Four Point Five, as well as continues to speak about alternative energy.

Toledo Free Press debate to feature Brown/Waniewski, Contrada/Sarantou, Kaczala/Lopez on Oct. 26 at TMA By Kristen Rapin TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTION EDITOR krapin@toledofreepress.com

On Election Day Nov. 2, area residents will cast votes for important national and statewide races, with congressional races, an election for Ohio governor — and an equally important number of local races. Toledo Free Press and the Toledo chapter of the League of Women Voters will host a three-in-one debate Oct. 26 between candidates in three of these races. “The Art of Politics” starts at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Toledo Museum of Art’s Great Gallery. This public event will feature three debate pairings moderated by FOX Toledo anchor Laura Emerson and live blogged by Lisa Renee Ward on the Glass City Jungle and Toledo Free Press websites. The debate begins with the Lucas County Auditor race, followed by the District 11 Ohio Senate race and then the Lucas County Commissioner race. Tickets for the debate are available through each candidate’s campaign.

Lucas County Auditor: Kaczala vs. Lopez Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez (D) is seeking to retain her position against Gina Marie Kaczala (R), a former employee of the auditor’s office. Lopez, who believes citizens are the boss, hopes to continue to work to make sure property values are fair and equitable and that citizens are engaged, she said. “The more we can engage the public, the more feedback we get and we can make sure our descriptions of their properties are accurate,” Lopez said. Since 2007, Lopez has cut the previous administration’s department spending by $500,000 and has added three new tools to the Auditors Real Estate Information System (ARIES) to provide more transparency, she said. The levy estimator allows citizens to see how much a proposed levy would cost them annually; the sales report allows citizens to see the price of sales in their market; and the tax distributor allows citizens to see dollar for dollar which government entity their property taxes are going to. If re-elected, Lopez hopes to add

links to the ARIES website that allow citizens to look directly at how money is being spent by the government entities receiving their property taxes, she said. In addition, Lopez hopes to work with the state to grant authority to the county auditor’s office to perform random LOPEZ audits on government entities. “I think that’s important in these tough economic times,” Lopez said. “The state only comes around once a year. There’s no KACZALA way of randomly keeping folks on their toes, to make sure they’re in compliance with the law.” Prior to serving as auditor, Lopez was Lucas County Recorder and member of the Toledo Public Schools Board of Education. Lopez’s opponent, Kaczala, said the development of ARIES has been virtually stagnant since her late-husband Larry Kaczala’s administration. “That office was once a pinnacle,” she said. “We had people visiting the office from China, Europe and Australia just to view ARIES because of our financial responsibility. It’s no longer that pinnacle.” Kaczala worked for 21 years in the Lucas County Auditor’s office and for 18 years as director of internal audits in the finance department. “That experience is invaluable. I know every aspect of that office. I know financially how that office should be run,” she said. Kaczala said if elected she already has an award-winning team with experience in finance and real estate ready to start working right away in the auditor’s office. As auditor, Kaczala would immediately reevaluate all properties to make sure the values were fair and accurate because state reports show property values being inaccurate, she said. Kaczala said senior citizens in Lucas County have been neglected and she will make sure they are being taken care of in a responsible manner. Kaczala worked on the office’s

comprehensive annual financial report that helped the county come up with its yearly budgets, she said. Every year the team received awards for its report, Kaczala said. Kaczala is a graduate of the University of Toledo where she received a degree in political science.

District 11 Ohio Senate: Brown vs. Waniewski Ohio House Representative for District 48 Edna Brown (D), who cannot run for re-election due to term limits, is seeking office within the Ohio Senate to continue serving Northwest Ohio. “I want to continue the work I’ve done in the House,” she said. “Take that experience to the Senate. I think that it will serve this area well.” Brown said more than eight years isn’t very long to get up to speed and get legislation moving, so she is seeking election in the Senate to continue her work. Brown said she understands Columbus and how the legislature works and will be able to utilize that experience, she said. Brown previously worked with some current Senate members in the House and will be able to use her past relationships to help the region, she said. Toledo City Councilman Tom Waniewski (R) decided to run for Ohio Senate because politicians were hopping from one legislature to another and he “couldn’t reward bad behavior.” While Waniewski hasn’t completed his full term as councilman, he said serving on Senate would be a greater way for him to assist the region. “I want to ramp up my public service. There’s nothing wrong with that if it’s in true public service fashion,” he said. “Some politicians may be looking for their next paycheck, and I see it as an opportunity to shout more loudly and more clearly for Northwest Ohio.” Waniewski hopes with a little energy and engagement he can help Northwest Ohio get out of its “funk.” Waniewski wants to engage the community and work with them to find solutions, he said. “Instead of being, “Here’s what we’ve done, let’s do this because it’s what we’ve always done,” let’s look at analyzing and finding new solutions,” he said. Waniewski wants to focus on fiscal

re s p ons i bi l it y and the education system, he said. “Government is spending more than they have. The culture of government has BROWN to change from one of politics to one of public service,” he said. In addition, Waniewski wants to explore underemployment insurance, putting people back to work and not having them depend on the government, he said.

Prior to serving five terms, Brown was a member of Toledo City Council for six years. Wa n i e w s k i worked for 25 WANIEWSKI years a journalist before starting an Internet company. He has served as resource director for the Boys & Girls Club of Toledo. He is also a past chairman of the United Way of Greater Toledo board. ■ DEBATE CONTINUES ON A11

The pour itself increases anticipation for the taste as it has an attractive thick head, good amount of lacing and plenty of bubbles. The taste is crisp, clean and delicately balanced flavour with a slight sweetness and fruity character.

Both said they’d go through the county’s budget line by line, eliminating waste. “I think it’s critically important to manage expenses and be accountable to the taxpayer. We need to make sure the service they think they’re paying for, is what they are getting,” Contrada said. Sarantou said he has helped cut the

I suspect there are other reserve funds,” Sarantou said. Contrada wants to bring an outside voice to the Board of Lucas CONTRADA County Commissioners. Her experience in Sylvania Township will help her represent the 11 other townships in the county, she said. Sarantou said if elected to the commissioner’s office, he would host meetings in townships and villages. “My goal is to improve the communications, work with the suburban government,” he said. “It’s important for us to go out and find out what we can do to improve their situations.” Sarantou said electing him as commissioner would help balance the county government, which is run by

two Democrat commissioners. Sarantou has served eight years on council and was re-elected for this third term as an at-large member in November. Sarantou is finance committee chairman and is a member of Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Government’s transSARANTOU portation council as well as a member of the Downtown Improvement District board of directors. As trustee, Contrada helped the township achieve a Double-A rating, maintained and improved the township’s infrastructure and improved emergency services, she said. Contrada has served seven years as trustee and is first chairwoman of TMACOG’s executive board. A personal injury lawyer, she is a member of the practice Contrada & Associates.

Program helps residents who are behind on utility bills By Kristen Rapin TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR krapin@toledofreepress.com

Representatives from Columbia Gas, Economic Opportunity Planning Association (EOPA) and United Way of Greater Toledo encourage people who are having a difficult time paying their utility bills this winter to seek help before services are turned off. “Some people don’t have utilities. Some people are facing disconnection.

service turned back on as long as they sign up for a payment plan to deal with past-due balances of their utility bill, said Chris Kozak on Columbia Gas of Ohio. Each customer gets one chance for the $175 reconnection during the winter, he said. To reconnect services, Columbia Gas customers can call (800) 344-4077. People who cannot afford the reconnect charge can, starting Nov. 1, receive assistance from EOPA’s HEAP to help pay the fee required to turn on gas. Individuals can begin making appointments for HEAP assistance starting at the end of October. Contact EOPA at (866) 504-7392 for an appointment. Bill Kitson, president and CEO of United Way, encouraged individuals who have trouble making payments to seek help right away, before problems escalate. If people don’t know where to seek assistance, they can call United Way’s 2-1-1 and be connected to the correct services, he said. The Joint Utility and Social Services Committee will host information fairs throughout the community for those seeking help with utility bills, rental and medical assistance and foreclosure prevention, among others.

FATALITIES

TPD: Two-car accident leaves three dead; alcohol suspected

A two-car accident at 1:54 a.m. Oct. 21 at 5405 N. Detroit Ave., just south of Alexis Road, killed three Toledo-area men in their early 20s. The driver of the first vehicle, Noel J. Papenfuse II, 21, of Toledo, was injured and taken to St. Vincent’s hospital. Killed were Papenfuse’s passengers: Noah E. McFadden, 23, of Sylvania and cousins Bryan A. Richardson, 20, and Bradley R.

Richardson Jr., 21, both of Toledo. According to the Toledo Police Department (TPD), Papenfuse was driving south on North Detroit. Papenfuse’s vehicle struck a vehicle driven by Paul G. Never as he pulled out of a private drive to head northbound on North Detroit. Speed appeared to be a factor in the crash, TPD reported. TPD listed Never, 68, of Ottawa

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

By Kristen Rapin

Toledo Free Press Special Sections Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

Incidents involving fire are the most common disasters. Since October 2009 more than 1,890 calls, approximately five calls a day — for services related to fires have been made in Lucas County, according to the Lucas County Emergency Management Agency (EMA). “I would say, at least with the Red Cross, fires are the No. 1 disasters that we respond to,” said Sheri Meeker, community disaster education specialist for the Red Cross of Greater Toledo. “Whether it’s a

freepress_hal_urban.indd 1

single home fire, an apartment fire or business, you just never know when there could be a fire.” To better prepare the public for fire emergencies, the Red Cross and Lucas County EMA will address fire safety at its next Ready U session, “Fire Safety and Prevention.” The hour-long presentation fits in with October’s fire safety month, said Matt Heyrman, director of the Lucas County EMA. “It’s a great subject to start with. One, it’s not the pie in a sky, like a tornado. For some people, even after Lake, that’s something that’s never going to happen,” he said. “Fire is one thing most people can relate to.”

The program will kick off with an introduction by Mayor Mike Bell, former Toledo fire chief, followed by presentations and videos from Brandon Loboschefski, Maumee fire prevention chief. Discussions will cover the leading causes of fire, fire injuries and what to do to prevent those things, as well as developing and practicing escape plans and maintaining smoke detectors, Loboschefski said. “[Participants will] get a lot of great information, but it’s practical information. Stuff you can use every day in their house and their lives,” Loboschefski said. “It will wake them up to a lot of things they don’t think about, things they take for granted every day ... That smoke detector that sits on your ceiling 24/7, when was the last time anyone changed it?” “Hopefully, they will think twice about some stuff. It’s just like, you never know what’s going to happen. You never know when you’re going to get into a car accident; you never know when a disaster is going to strike.” In addition, the audience will participate in a pre- and post-test covering fire safety knowledge. Ready U, a 10-session yearlong series, is designed to educate the public and prepare individuals and families

for potential emergencies in Northwest Ohio. “Fire Safety and Prevention” is scheduled for Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. and will last an hour. It will take place at Maumee Fire Station No.1, 220 Illinois Ave. The program is free and the audience has a chance to win raffle prizes,

including The Anderson’s gift certificates, carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. For more about Ready U programs and information on how to prepare for an emergency, visit ready-u.com. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor for the Ready U program.

June 5. The 5K run/walk starts at 1 p.m. Oct. 24 on the towpath at BLANK FAMILY: Side Cut Metropark (between Jerome Road and Wa y n e Street) and includes running across the Maumee-Perrysburg Bridge. Perrysburg student council president Alexis Eckel didn’t know anyone affected by the tornado, but she feels badly for students like Casey. “I heard about it, but I didn’t realize how bad it was until I saw it,” Eckel said. “This isn’t a little thing that happens.” The councils decided to earmark the money raised at the Rivalry Run for new technology at Lake’s new school. “We figured it would mean more if we donated to a certain department in the school,” Eckel said. “Plus, at Perrysburg, we are big into using computers and using online resources in our classes.” Heather Dansack, adviser for Maumee student council, said the race kicks off spirit week before the Maumee-Perrysburg football rivalry game Oct. 29. Dansack likened the high school rivalry to the Ohio State versus Michigan game. In 2009, Maumee took home the victory bell. “Last year was our first race and we raised more than $4,000 for Hospice of Northwest Ohio,” Dansack said. “Lake had been part of our NLL family and seeing something like this happen to a school that the students had been to or passed by, they wanted to do something to help.” Dansack said 100 runners have pre-registered for the race, which is more than last year. The bulk of last year’s participants showed up on the day of the race, which is allowed this year, too, she said. The participation fee is $20 for students and $25 for adults and includes a T-shirt. Without a T-shirt, the price is $10 for students and $15 for adults. Eckel said Maumee and Perrysburg are usually only rivals on the night of the game and during the race, but this year, they wanted to come together to help Lake. Registration information is at www.maumee.k12.oh.us or visit the Maumee High School or Perrysburg High School main offices.

Augustine addresses investment issues By Duane Ramsey

TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

Mark CLAIR Nolan BAKER

Be ready for Black Monday

L

ooking back at my short 34 years, several moments in time stand out that I can remember like they were yesterday. Most of those memories are wonderful experiences that I often think about. Just this week, I came across a video my wife took of my oldest son rolling over for the first time. My grandfather sent me a newspaper clipping this week from when I was a child at the fair and won a bunch of Scooby Doo stuffed animals. Other times there are negative memories that come to mind. One memory in particular was the October stock market crash of 1987, known as Black Monday. On that Monday morning, I was riding with my dad in our blue Chevy Astro van heading to Defiance. My dad had always been a fan of talk radio and that day he was glued to the AM dial. It wasn’t until a year later that Dad sat me down and started teaching me about investing in the stock market, so I was just annoyed I couldn’t play my new Bon Jovi cassette tape. I remember seeing the concern on my dad’s face as he listened to the stock market collapse By the end of the day, the Dow Jones had dropped 22.61 percent, its biggest one-day percentage decline in history. To my dad, that day seemed like a financial disaster. n RETIRE CONTINUES ON A19

John Augustine, chief investment strategist for Fifth Third Bank, addressed investment issues under the current economic conditions for a group of the bank’s investment clients Oct. 19 at the Toledo Club. Augustine’s presentation titled “Looking Out the Front Window,” encourages people to look forward despite reports that 81 percent of Americans don’t believe the recession ended in June 2009 as many economists believe. “We’re far enough away from the recession, people need to keep looking forward out the front window and not in the rearview mirror at the past,” Augustine said. “My best advice is to turn off the national media every evening because they’re too busy looking in that rearview mirror.” Augustine advised investors to focus on markets and investment strategies that are moving forward with the U.S. economy and its expected 2-percent growth. Fifth Third looks at the markets with a CHEC3 formula for analyzing the factors affecting it. C and H represent “Cars” and “Homes,” which drive the economy in the Midwest and are trying to gain ground after hitting bottom and stabilizing. They’re not going down anymore, but there is a lot of capacity to fill back up, Augustine said. E represents “Exports,” which are rising with the highest numbers in two years as the U.S. and other countries are exporting goods that are not selling in the U.S., also called excess capacity. C stands for Construction which is still under stress especially in the private sector with housing starts and commercial building down. C also represents “Corporate Profits,” which have recovered sharply. Productivity went up during the recession but came at the great cost of 10 percent unemployment. Corporations need to release some of that money back into the economy, Augustine said.

The Retirement Guys

OCTOBER 24, 2010

n John Augustine, left, vice president and chief investment strategist, Mary Ann Michel, vice president Charitable Management Services and Steve Sherline, director of Investment Advisors Division, of Fifth Third Bank, Oct. 19 at the Toledo Club.

The final C represents “Consumer Spending,” which is recovering but spending is shifting more to services rather than manufactured goods. “One game changer is where do we go to get income? We go back to the stock market since stocks are now yielding more than bonds, which hasn’t happened in 52 years. The markets are reacting positively, a very unusual situation, so we need to diversify our investments,” Augustine said. Standard & Poors is expected to close the year around 1200 but remain very volatile. Interest rates must remain lower longer to produce a yield range of 2 to 4 percent. Augustine said time is needed for U.S. issues to settle and for demand to grow into the capacity to build more

More businesses are banking with Key. Shouldn’t you?

cars, houses and products. The message to policymakers should be to keep costs low and opportunities high. Going into the November elections, there is a perceived anti-business sentiment in Washington, Augustine said. The outcome of the election could provide some relief and will likely be pivotal for stock performance later in the year, he added. The economy needs consumers to manage their debt, and the government needs its debt, too. Looking at the investment portfolio, principal preservation should cover the inflation rate of 1.2 percent. Be income-focused with an expected yield of 3 percent for lower risk to 6 percent for higher risk investments.

“Know where you are against your investment goal. Investors need to be patient for the next two to three years as the economy sorts it all out,” said Augustine, who expects energy and transportation to be two growth areas in Ohio. “One piece of advice for investors is to take a look at the investment policy statement. The investment environment has changed and proper investigation into your investment profile is necessary,” said Steve Sherline, director of the Investment Advisors Division at Fifth Third. Fifth Third Bank has $25.5 billion in assets under management for investment clients with $2 billion of that in Northwest Ohio, according to its results released Sept. 30.

OCTOBER 24, 2010 n RETIRE CONTINUED FROM A18 Twenty-three years later, looking back at that moment, I should have just pushed in the cassette tape and Bon Jovi’s song “Livin’ on a Prayer” might have made him relax a bit. As the Retirement Guys, we realize the impact losing money can have on retirees. It could mean outliving their income and potentially running out of money. We meet

with people all of the time, some are worried about the stock market and others are focused on what’s really important to them. If you are concerned about the stock market and the economy, we’d like to share a couple of simple steps with you so when the next crash happens, you too can just turn up the music and get back to enjoying the ride. Step one: Have a certain amount of safe money. Not only does it make

sense for investors to be safer when they get older, it can also buy them time, time not to panic. If investors have an account not exposed to stock market risk, they can take withdrawals from the safe account while the stock market is down, giving the stock market accounts time to recover. For many investors who pulled their money out of the stock market after the 87 crash, they missed out on the gains in the stock market

Driving to an appointment this week, I went past a clothing store that had a sign in the window that said, “We Buy Gold.” For me, that is a pretty clear sign that now isn’t the time for us to advise our clients to buy a bunch of gold investments. History has shown time and time again, the stock market and the economy can be very punishing to people who chase the hot trends. Remember technology stocks? How about how easy it was to make money in real estate? Just the same, allowing emotions to get in the way and selling out after a large loss may not make sense either. Instead, ignore everyone else and make decisions only after reviewing a well thought out plan of action. Step three: Put money to work when something is super cheap. If investors take steps while things are going good to increase safe accounts, they can buy opportunities when things are bad. Look for companies that are leaders in their industry and ones that stand out

above the crowd. Believe in America and buy quality investments that should be able to weather the storm. Taking these three steps may not make you the next Warren Buffett, but many of these principles are ones he follows. If you feel that you are not in control of your investments, but are happy to see your account statements have gone back up, then now might be a good time, while prices are much higher than they were a few years ago, to get back in control before the next Black Monday occurs.

hen I arrived at the Huntington Center for the Oct. 19 preseason matchup between the Detroit Pistons and the Washington Wizards, a grin flashed across my face. As I entered the floor level of the arena, it was clear that this facility has the perfect setup for basketball. The floor, which had been last used by the now defunct Toledo Ice, had been repainted and finished for the basketball game. The facility really did shine, and I wasn’t the only one who thought so either. “This arena is a great venue,” Pistons head coach John Kuester said after the team’s 98-92 preseason win against the Wizards. “It really is a beautiful place, and I think that Toledo has a lot to be proud of.” Kuester wasn’t the only one singing the new arena’s praises. Several of the Pistons were impressed. “I felt real comfortable out there tonight,” said point guard Rodney Stuckey said after scoring 34 points in the win. “It is really nice here, and it has been first-class since we got here this afternoon.” Center Ben Wallace was seen interacting with fans near the Pistons bench, handing out Juicy Fruit gum to the crowd. “I am a gentle giant by nature,” Wallace said with a smile. “But these great fans really got behind us. This was a great crowd here tonight.” Starting guard Richard “Rip” Hamilton was impressed with the facility amenities, despite the Huntington Center not hosting a basketball game in its one year of existence. “We play in many different places during the preseason, and not every place has the same quality,” Hamilton said. n SEATS CONTINUES ON A21

I am not suggesting that an NBA team set up shop in the Glass City. I am not insane, but I do think an NBA Developmental League (NBDL) franchise is maybe more up Toledo’s alley. The attendance was more than 6,000 fans on Oct. 19, and while it was not a sellout, when you take into account the ticket prices the number is more than justified. Tickets ranged from $20 to $200, which would be considerably less with a NBDL team. Imagine what kind of attendance a franchise would draw with tickets around the $15 mark, much like Walleye tickets. An NBDL team normally is affiliated with either two or three NBA teams, and with an NBA an hour to the north and another two hours east, Toledo’s location sets up beautifully for both teams to check in on their prospective players. Fort Wayne, Ind., has a NBDL franchise of their own, and the Mad Ants have been a success in the city. We have similar population sizes, industry and values. The same could happen here. But Toledo’s real “ace-in-the-hole” is Toledo Arena Sports Inc. The parent company to the Toledo Mud Hens and the Toledo Walleye has done a fantastic job putting together two minor league franchises and making them a success. I think it is realistic to think that they could make another minor league franchise a success, especially with the Toledo Bullfrogs, a proposed arena football team, still an unknown. The ownership of the three franchises has been able to have the teams transcend from just being sports to being family-friendly events. This group could do the same with basketball in Toledo.

ODOT offers workshop on creating jobs From Staff Reports

Ohioans have the opportunity to speak out on the issue of creating more Ohio jobs through transportation at a series of interactive public workshops hosted across the state by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). In response to a national economic report showing that the “bang for the buck� realized by investments in transportation is at an all-time high, ODOT is asking residents to offer their feedback on “How can Ohio’s transportation dollars create even more jobs, support additional business growth and move Ohio’s economy forward faster?� The only public workshop scheduled in Northwest Ohio will be Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union at Bowling Green State University. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on policy issues using hand-held technology, which will impact transportation investment, according to ODOT. “The GO Ohio workshop is open to all who are concerned with igniting Ohio’s economic growth through the future of transportation.  These workshops are being set up across the state and on Oct. 27, it’s Northwest Ohio’s chance to give our input in designing Ohio’s future multimodal transportation network,� David Dysard, deputy director of ODOT District Two, stated in an e-mail. The workshops are part of ODOT’s “Go Ohio� Transportation Futures Plan that will examine state investments in all modes of travel and shipping to include air, highway, rail, transit, pedestrian and bicycle. ODOT

officials hope to align those transportation choices more comprehensively with job creation, economic development and quality of life. “Transportation has always been a driver of jobs and economic development for Ohioans,� said ODOT Director Jolene Molitoris in a statement. “Low construction costs mean we can do more than ever before with our resources and at the same time create more good-paying Ohio jobs.� The U.S. Department of Treasury recently reported a new analysis of the economic effects of transportation and infrastructure investment. The report suggests that 90 percent of the jobs created by infrastructure spending are middle class jobs in sectors of the economy suffering from high levels of unemployment. Molitoris said the timing for this effort “couldn’t be better,� with the report out of Washington showing that infrastructure investments can and will raise economic growth and productivity. ODOT’s “Go Ohio� program centers on four investment strategies aimed at shaping future funding decisions. Those strategies assure that any future transportation investment will: increase state competitiveness; connect transportation system investment to targeted industries; understand the impact of government land use and transportation policies; and embrace environmental stewardship to advance a green economy. Molitoris said more than 360,000 jobs in Ohio are linked to exports and the ability to move goods efficiently. With $34 billion in annual exports, Ohio ranks seventh in the nation in the value of goods exported to international

markets. Ohio has the fourth largest interstate system, ranks fourth in tonnage of goods moved through its waterways and third in active freight rail mileage, recently edging out California. The Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) encouraged its members to attend by sending them an e-mail announcement about the workshops. Reservations can be made by e-mail to Go.Ohio@dot. state.oh.us, although reservations are not required to attend the workshop.

not. But I think they’re feeling very good about it.’’ GM became a private company last year after filing for bankruptcy protection. The U.S. government became the largest shareholder when it gave the company $50 billion to help it survive. The government hopes to recoup that investment by selling its 61 percent stake over time. Rattner called the automotive rescue “an incredibly historic time in American capitalism’’ and said the bailouts helped avert “an economic catastrophe.’’ He declined to discuss an ongoing investigation of an influence-peddling scandal involving New York state’s $125 billion public pension fund.

Stranahan hosts ‘singular sensation’ with ‘Chorus Line’ By Hannah Nusser

Toledo Free Press Star Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

In its second, slightly updated revival, the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, “A Chorus Line,” will perform at the Stranahan Theater in Toledo Oct. 28 to 31. The Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning musical kicked off its tour Oct. 1. The iconic show follows a group of Broadway dancers auditioning for a spot on a chorus line in a behind-thescenes look at the challenges of being a professional dancer. With less glitz and glam than other musicals, cast member Kieron Cindric, of Findlay, Ohio, said the heart of the show is in the story rather than the spectacle.

“It’s really scaled down in that essentially the dancers are on a bare stage,” Cindric said. “You have a backdrop of mirrors and you have dancers in their dance wear … Yes, there is great dancing in it. Yes, there is this beautiful, gold, sparkling number at the end of the show, but what I think resonates with audience members is the different dancer’s stories.” Originally conceived, choreographed and directed by Michael Bennett, “A Chorus Line” debuted in 1975 and played until 1990. The celebrated musical won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It even received a special Tony Award in 1984 when it became the longest-running show in Broadway history. “A Chorus Line” reopened in 2006 under the direction of original cast

member Baayork Lee. The revival closed in 2008. For the newest production, Lee is directing and restaging choreography. Cindric, who plays Swing, said learning the original steps of “A Chorus Line” from Lee is an honor beyond his wildest dreams. “She would share stories with us about the evolution of the show, about the origins of different musical numbers, whose story that had been,” Cindric said. “Because for the most part the people were playing themselves, the stories they were telling were their own stories.” Other than slight alterations to the costumes, staging and script, Cindric said the musical remains just as it was 40 years ago. “For the most part, it’s the show you would’ve seen in the ’70s, but with

contemporary actors,” Cindric said. “Even though, yes, it has its references to the ’70s … the idea of sort of being behind the scenes, witnessing the struggle that these people go through, is timeless and it’s still exciting to see and it still has a lot of resonance even for people today.” When Cindric first saw “A Chorus Line” in middle school, he said, he fell in love with the music and choreography and begged his mom to get him the cast recording. “I would dance around the living room to some of the songs and make my neighbors watch me,” Cindric said. “It’s always been a dream of mine to be involved in ‘A Chorus Line.’” Cindric said the show’s message will hit home for anyone who has gone through an audition or interview process. The behind-the-scenes feel of “A

Chorus Line” has a new relevance to today’s audience, Cindric said, in light of popular TV shows like “American Idol” and “Dancing with the Stars.” “It’s fascinating to see what goes into that process and what the struggle is,” Cindric said. “I feel like as long as people have to audition or interview for any type of position it will still have a very relevant message.” Cindric grew up watching plays at the Stranahan Theater. “It’s definitely going to feel like I’m coming home,” he said. The musical will perform in Toledo on Oct. 28 and 29 at 8 p.m., Oct. 30 at 2 and 8 p.m. and Oct. 31 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets start at $23 and are available through Ticketmaster, the Stranahan Theater box office, at www. theaterleague.com or by calling 800745-3000.

IN CONCERT

Weepies to play at The Ark By Vicki L. Kroll

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer vkroll@toledofreepress.com

The Weepies have whipped together a confectionary delight, “Be My Thrill.” Released in August, the duo’s fourth disc teems with upbeat, bubbly songs. And the married couple had fun making the sweet pop-folk record, their first as parents. “Our studio is kind of this converted garage in this lovely little backyard that we have,” said Deb Talan. “It’s like a little Eden back there. There’s a pomegranate tree and a lemon tree, our kids’ toys everywhere, rose bushes — and it just felt like making this record at a time in our life in this creative mess but in a really good, fun way.” “We posted Twiteos — videos on Twitter — of making the record and put them up, and you can see the kids running back and forth, people coming and going, and it was a laugh,” said Steve Tannen. “It was awesome and a really beautiful time, too.” The singer-songwriters sounded just as happy during a call from their Los Angeles home as they do on “Be My Thrill.” Hard to believe the title track was inspired by a spat. “We had a fight, and I went out to Hollywood Boulevard, and I wrote the chorus,” Tannen said. “I was a little bit mad, but you know I love my wife; what are you being so difficult for?” They laughed. “It’s a love song, but it’s sort of an angry love song,” Talan said. The song has that dark humor associated with The Weepies: “I miss all of the joy you kill/ But I love you still,” they sing in the chorus. The couple’s first son was born in 2008, and they opted not to tour to support “Hideway.” But their music was everywhere: “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Sex and the City,” holiday commercials for national stores, Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. This time, they’ll bring their sons, Theo, and Alexander, 6 months. The Weepies will bring their band to The Ark in Ann Arbor for a soldout show Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. The Chapin Sisters will open.

CARLSON’S CRITTERS

A home for Zoey Zoey is a 6-year-old female domestic and longhaired cat. She was surrendered to the Toledo Area Humane Society after her owner had to move and wasn’t allowed to keep cats in her new apartment. Zoey is an affectionate cat that loves attention. She likes to be petted and will curl up and nap in your lap. Zoey gets along well with other cats and would enjoy a calm feline companion. Because she is a longhaired cat, she will need to be brushed on a regular basis to keep her fur from matting. Zoey has been declawed on all four paws and she enjoys sleeping inside of things with high sides, like a box with a pillow inside or a deep cat bed. She is a calm cat that spends most of her time curled up somewhere taking a nice nap. This fluffy feline is a lowmaintenance cat that would make a good companion for anyone looking

for a little company. Zoey has been spayed, examined by a staff veterinarian, is current on her vaccinations and is microchipped. Toledo Area Humane Society is located at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Arrowhead Park, Maumee. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Call (419) 891-0705 or visit www. toledoareahumanesociety.org.
