Blind ambition O T

n Nov. 2, many people believed Issue 5, a permanent 7.8-mill levy for Toledo Public Schools (TPS), addressed the most important issue facing our community: the need to drastically improve the quality of education in our school system. Among the community leaders asking for the steep “Hail Mary” levy were TPS Superintendent Jerome Pecko, Toledo Mayor Mike Bell, United Way President and CEO Bill Kitson and TPS Board of Education President Bob Vasquez. On Nov. 3, a half-day after the levy was soundly defeated, Pecko, Bell and Kitson were answering media questions about the next steps and the future of the school system. Vasquez, apparently, was job hunting. Vasquez was seen visiting Toledo City Council President Wilma Brown’s office that morning, and although he has publicly denied it, word spread that some of the conversation was about his interest in leaving his TPS post for the at-large council seat soon to be vacated by Lucas Thomas F. Pounds County Commissioner-elect George Sarantou. While Vasquez denied he talked to anyone on council about the position, he confirmed to Toledo Free Press on Nov. 4 that “If a position was offered to me, I’d consider it.” Some have said Vasquez declined to confirm that this week, but by the time they said that, the trial balloon was already launched, popped and laying in pieces on the ground. I personally like and respect Vasquez for his years of service under difficult conditions. There is no question Vasquez has the right to seek political advancement, and I have no quarrel about his experience — he is as qualified as many of the other names being bandied about. But his hasty willingness to leave TPS in its darkest hour is disappointing and undermines his credibility. Whether Vasquez intended his trial balloon to go public is beside the point. Just when TPS leadership most needs to stand united and work to salvage the future of the system, its most prominent board member has shown that maybe his heart isn’t really in the battle. It is a horrible message to send; even those who did not support Issue 5 understand that TPS desperately needs strong and dedicated leadership, and Vasquez is, at least temporarily, compromised. Vasquez also did himself no favors when he said if he was appointed to council, his TPS colleagues would be able to successfully continue without him. “My colleagues have the expertise and skills to carry on the business of the board. I have a lot of confidence in them that they can do that,” he said. Those words are likely to haunt Vasquez every time someone on the board disagrees with him. Can Vasquez still stand shoulder to shoulder with Bell, Pecko, Kitson and other community leaders who are working to salvage TPS? Yes, with some above-and-beyond-the-call-of-duty action. And an increased measure of discretion when it comes to climbing the political ladder. Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star. Contact him at

Seeing Dean and Bettie, surrounded by 50-year-old photos and mementos, enveloped by family and friends, I can see the payoff, in love and strength, that results from working to stay in a marriage for more than half a lifetime. Bettie faces some health challenges that make these days bittersweet. And just like he has been for 50-plus years, Dean is there, and his tender, watchful eyes keep Bettie in view, his arms embrace her and his heart colors his every word and expression for her. Every Christmas, my wife and I take our two young boys to Dean and Bettie’s for a visit. My sons are far too young to understand the triumph that Bettie and Dean represent, but as they grow, I hope they know enough about them to understand what an impact they had on their own father, and what a standard has been set for me and my wife to pass on to them. Coupled with the example set by their maternal grandparents, Kit and Kay Scott, there are more than enough role models to learn from. I won’t live to see my sons Evan and Sean celebrate their 50th wedding anniversaries, but when they do, I hope they remember Dean and Bettie, and Bill and Delores, and Kit and Kay. And their own mom and dad, which may represent the greatest triumph of all. Bettie Matheney died Nov. 10. Dean was at her side. This is the first time my little boys have seen me cry, and I am going to make it an opportunity to begin teaching them the lessons Dean and Bettie taught me. As soon as I can stop. Michael S.

For the past three years, Independent Advocates (IA) has worked as a proponent for domestic violence victims and education in Lucas County. While working for another agency, IA co-founders and co-directors Rebecca Facey and Rachel Richardson believed they were limited in the services they could provide, so they decided to create a new organization. In November 2007, the pair founded IA to meet the community’s need for more extensive domestic violence advocacy. “We felt there was a need for comprehensive court advocacy services for victims of domestic violence and we generally felt that the community response to domestic violence needed to be improved drastically,” Facey said. “We want to try to bring domestic violence to the forefront of community members’ minds and the courts’ minds.”


IA, a nonprofit agency with a twomember staff, focuses on three main programs: comprehensive court advocacy, community education and court watch, Richardson said. The comprehensive court advocacy program pairs a domestic violence victim with a court advocate to accompany him or her through the legal process. Since its inception, IA has helped 200 to 250 individuals with this program, Richardson said. “An advocate would follow a woman’s, or a victim of domestic violence’s, case throughout the entire court process,” Richardson said. “So, if she has to be in Toledo Municipal Court, we’ll go with her to that hearing. If she has to go to domestic relations court, we’ll go with her there.” The court advocate provides emotional support for the victim and assists the victim in understanding the court process. In addition to attending court cases with a victim, a court advocate attends interviews with prosecutors and lawyers to make sure the victim’s voice is being heard, Facey said. n ADVOCATES CONTINUES ON A7

n ADVOCATES CONTINUED FROM A6 “If it’s a criminal case, we connect victims with the prosecutors and sit in on prosecutor interviews,” Facey said. “We make sure, first of all, the victims are prepared for that, what kind of information they’re supposed to be reporting to the prosecutor. In a criminal case, they can only be concerned with this incident in which a criminal charge resulted, not the entire history, which is obviously still important to us and we as advocates can hear that, but the prosecutors aren’t going to listen to that.” The advocate would provide the same assistance for a civil case, she said. The community education program spreads the message that it’s everyone’s responsibility to stop domestic violence, said Richardson, who contributes a column about arts and advocacy to Toledo Free Press Star. Facey and Richardson speak with groups about domestic violence and IA developed a public service announcement that ran on TV during the spring, Richardson said. IA has also placed purple ribbons, the color of domestic violence awareness, on trees for local domestic violence awareness month. “We’re a very small grassroots organization with extremely limited funds, but we think it’s a ripple effect. We have to engage other people and get other

people to pick up the ball and be willing to recognize their role in stopping domestic violence as well,” Facey said. Another component of the community education message is to stop blaming victims, Richardson said. “We insist on accountability for the people who are doing the crime, which is domestic violence. We insist on abuser accountability,” Richardson said. “Let’s not ask, ‘Why does she stay?’ Let’s ask, ‘Why does he beat her?’” The third program IA focuses on is court watch. Volunteers observe and document different things that are happening during arraignments, the first time a defendant goes before a judge. Since January, more than 50 volunteers have donated time to record what bonds are being set, what is taking place in protection order hearings and if the judge is addressing whether firearms are being removed from the defendant’s possession, Richardson said. The volunteers will continue documenting arraignments until IA believes it has sufficient data to present to the court system. The goal is to eventually create a separate domestic violence court in Lucas County to change the way potentially fatal crimes of domestic violence are handled, Richardson said. “We’re meeting with some resistance to that, so we need to make a convincing report,” she said.

The future

While IA has the goal of setting up domestic violence court in Lucas County, the ultimate goal would be to end domestic violence and no longer need domestic violence advocates, Facey and Richardson said. “Domestic violence is an issue that needs to be considered all the time. It doesn’t go away until the community decides it, as a community, doesn’t tolerate it,” Richardson said. “We hope to get that message into everybody’s heads, that we do not tolerate it. If you see a person disrespecting their partner on the street — disrespecting them verbally, grabbing them, putting their hands on them — you’re allowed to say, ‘Hey, that’s not cool.’ That’s your neighbor, that’s your community member and you might be the only person who’s sticking up for them. So be that person.” As the end of domestic violence has yet to come, IA hopes to employ more advocates to accompany victims in court. Eventually, IA would like at least 10 advocates with one in each court, Richardson said. In addition, Facey is attending law school at the University of Toledo to eventually serve domestic violence victims in Toledo, expanding the services IA can offer. “As advocates, we’re very aware of our limitations. We cannot practice

Visit law without a license,” Richardson said. “We don’t have a lot of power in the courtroom. We’re there as emotional support for our clients. Once [Facey is] able to practice law, it’s going to change the whole game.”

Independent Action Party

To celebrate its third birthday, IA will host the second annual Independent Action Party on Nov. 20. “It’s a great opportunity to celebrate Toledo and all we have to offer, while joining the local movement to stop domestic violence,” Facey said. “It’s the chance to recognize that, whether you think you know someone affected by domestic violence or not, you do. One in three women will be affected by domestic violence in their life and that affects us all.” The fundraising event features food from local restaurants, a silent auction with pieces from area artists, a tarot card reader, henna tattoo artist and caricatures. In addition, music will be provided by DJs Mattimoe and Tina G, as well as live bands, The Faux Paus and Cheap Celebz. The Independent Action Party is the group’s largest fundraising event of the year, but IA hosts other fundraising events throughout the year with the support of local businesses. “We’re doing this work for the community and we very much need the

Lucas County Children Services kicks off its annual holiday drive By Kristen Rapin

Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) and Friends of Lucas County Children Services kicked off their holiday toy drive Nov. 8. This year, the LCCS hopes to collect enough toys and gifts for 2,000 abused and neglected children in its services. “These are kids who have been through difficult times. We want to make sure the holidays are happy for them,” said Julie Malkin, public information officer at LCCS. Through Dec. 15, individuals can drop off unwrapped toys at area locations. The LCCS will also collect wrapping paper and tape for families to wrap the gifts themselves, but the gifts need to remain visible to match toys to children, Malkin said.

After catching chickenpox as an adult and having half of her brain removed, Jeannine Dailey was expected to live the rest of her life in a nursing home never to realize her dream of owning a business. Through a new job placement program at the Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio, Dailey is getting that chance. “I had to learn everything over again. I had to learn to walk again, talk again, start all over. They didn’t expect me to live and if I did, I’d be a vegetable,” Dailey said. “I never ever expected to be a teacher again, let alone open a business and have my dreams come true. I always wanted to open a mural painting business and this program is allowing my dreams to come true.” Goodwill is participating in a statewide project aimed at creating customized employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission (RSC) selected six groups, including Goodwill, to facilitate the MicroEnterprise & Customized Employ-

ment Demonstration Project (MCED) in Ohio. The project is funded through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act and is designed to create new job placement programs for those with significant disabilities. Instead of placing an individual in a job that is available, the new job placement process through MCED creates a customized job for the individual based on their passion, said Kathy LeRoux, Goodwill’s community employment services manager and MCED project manager. Each job placement process is based around the individual and every participant receives his or her own community action team. The community action teams are made up of family, friends, community members and Goodwill employees who will all assist throughout the process, LeRoux said. “They’ve made a lot of accommodations for me and my lack of eyesight. It’s just been amazing. And I have a very hard time with my memory and they come up with a lot of different ideas as far as taking pictures of everybody and putting their little bios down, so I can memorize them before meetings and such,” said

Dailey, a former teacher and painter who is working within the program to establish her own business. Once individuals are referred to Goodwill from their counselors at the RSC, they first participate in a discovery process. “Through the discovery process we talk about their talents and their likes. Different things we could go with to pick out what would be the perfect employment for them,” LeRoux said. Upon completion of the discovery process, an individual is paired with employers in the community to explore customized employment based on their abilities, or he or she is referred to small business development centers (SBDC) to create their own business. “The first thing we do is help them write a business plan,” said Heather Bradley, president and CEO of the Flourishing Company, a SBDC involved in the program. “Explore what needs to go into place to support and sustain this business, because we want them to succeed. We’re looking at a couple of different things — the business itself, we’re looking at support structures they may have in their life and resources, we’re looking at how we

can position this person for success … We’re looking to see how can we commercialize that for them.” Becky Rader, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia, works at Target, but is a sculptor in her free time. She is just beginning the first steps with the SBDC and hopes to sell her work in a kiosk at the mall. “It’s painful having to reach. When I do [my sculptures], I don’t have to worry about feeling any physical pain,” Rader said.

Goodwill has 15 individuals participating in the MCED. While the demonstration project only runs through September 2011, Goodwill plans on continuing the program. “We’re going to continue once we’re trained and we know everything, we don’t see a reason to go back to the old way of job placement. This is just a really neat new idea that will hopefully serve many more individuals,” LeRoux said. Visit for more information.

Going back to college can be a scary thought. The University of Toledo’s College of Adult and Lifelong Learning is striving to better assist adults and nontraditional students in making the transition back to school. As part of UT’s major reorganization plan, the former University College is now the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning (CALL), combining what officials call innovative advising methods with past successful strategies for helping nontraditional students on their back-toschool journeys. CALL gives more flexibility to nontraditional students, said Dennis Lettman, dean of the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning. “A lot of folks [are] out of work these days and they can no longer wait to go back to the same jobs they were in because those jobs won’t exist anymore,” Lettman said. “They’ll be looking for other opportunities, and we can work with them.” While it will offer its own majors

and degree programs, CALL will also work with every college within the university to help students earn the degree they need, he said. Whether it’s a bachelor’s degree to become more marketable in the job field, or someone who is unemployed and wants to earn a degree quickly, Lettman said the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning will work with students in any situation. Instead of traditional 16-week courses, students will have the option to finish some courses in six or eight weeks. More evening classes will be offered for those who work during the day, and courses will be given in shorter time frames for those with tight schedules. “Along with all of those instructional methods we think it’s very, very important to be able to provide the right kind of support services for students,” Lettman said. Advisers will go one step further to act as life coaches, he said. They will accommodate students’ schedules, consulting with them in person, by phone or e-mail to help them overcome hurdles like scheduling, financial burdens and time constraints.

“To an adult student, time is a commodity,” Lettman said. “It’s as important as money.” Flexibility is key to making efficient and effective use of everyone’s time, Lettman said. Another development within the college is the Prior Learning Assessments, in which students can earn college credit for life experience. Working in the job field, participating in educational workshops or in the military are just some ways students can earn credit for their experiences. “[The] Prior Learning Assessment is a way in which we can work with students to be able to document all that learning and actually get credit for classes so they don’t have to sit through classes, so they don’t have to pay for all the classes,” Lettman said. “It’s another way to offset the cost.” CALL also offers special services for veterans and students in the military. UT now provides a Military Services Center, located in Rocket Hall, with staff equipped to advise and answer questions specific to veteran and military students. UT continues to offer “Returning to Learning” workshops. The work-

shops, which are open to the community, give patrons an opportunity to discuss their options and specific situations with UT staff. “Sometimes there can be some reluctance to come back to school,” Lettman said. “Because it seems like a big place, it’s kind of scary and you’re not sure … we want to try to be out

there in a way that makes people feel welcome and comfortable and to want to come back.” Due to the pending reorganization of UT’s colleges, CALL may receive a name change to the School of Adult and Lifelong Learning, though it will continue its mission to assist adult learners, Lettman said.

Lake boosters mark golf fundraiser, prepare for basketball Editor’s note: Toledo Free Press will follow the Blank family of Millbury for the next year as they rebuild their lives after a June 5 tornado destroyed their Main Street home. By Brandi Barhite Toledo Free Press Associate Editor

The golf event Ed Blank organized for the Lake Athletic Boosters will become annual because of its success, he said in an e-mail. The Oct. 10 outing generated about $2,000 for stu- BLANK dent athletes. “The weather was beautiful,” Ed said. “We received great support from other neighboring schools with players from Clay, Rossford and Penta.” Team Sports, Toledo Edison, Snow’s Wood Shop and Rudolph|Libbe were some of the businesses that sent participants. Eighteen teams participated in total. “We plan to make this a yearly event and hope to grow it to a max of 28 teams,” he said. Ed said the event was added to the fundraising lineup because of several financial responsibilities. With the loss

of the field house and a concession stands to the June 5 tornado, which play a major role in fundraising, the booster club is concerned about revenue for the next couple years, he said. The club provides uniforms for student athletes. It also paid for the construction of a track barn that was unveiled in the spring. Booster treasurer Tom Steedman said the club still owes $138,000 on the track barn and needs to fulfill its promise of providing $4,400 annually for uniforms. The $2,000 from the golf fundraiser will go toward the barn loan. season was FAMILY: OK; “Football soccer season wasn’t nearly as good as what we thought it would be,” Steedman said of concessionary revenue. In addition to attendance being light at the final home football game, “hot chocolate usually does well, but it never got cold enough,” Steedman said. Booster president Kurt Johnson said concessions might suffer during basketball season. The basketball games will be hosted in the Student Health and Activities Center (SHAC) at Owens as Lake High School is rebuilt. The booster club hopes to get a secured storage unit to keep at Owens, so

it will not have to bring the concessions back and forth from the games. Right now, Owens has a spot for storage, but it is not secure, Johnson said. Usually, Steedman and Johnson were

able to get into the school to organize and restock, which they won’t be able to do at Owens. They also aren’t sure if fans will show up to watch the games at Owens.

“We just don’t know if parents will drop kids off and let them run around for a few hours,” Steedman said. The first game is Nov. 27 when the Lake girls will play Rossford.

Our hotel, the Phuoc An River (pronounce it any way you like, especially since it often floods) was located in a lovely setting halfway between the village and the ocean. Bicycles were available to us free of charge, so I took advantage of the somewhat rural location (little traffic) and rode along the river to the beach. Hoi An was a treat after the large cities. Most structures were just two stories covered with yellow stucco, marred by much black mold from the flooding. We visited a home along the river where the residents marked the water levels and the dates on the wall. The most recent was almost to the ceiling from just two weeks before.

Survey: Small business outlook improves after elections By Duane Ramsey


The small business community expects a positive impact from the results of the congressional elections, with 62 percent believing the new Republican-controlled House will have a favorable impact on small businesses overall and 58 percent believing their own business will improve, according to a survey by Manta Media based in Columbus. “Our survey is truly the voice of small businesses and provides a clear view of their concerns and their new optimism,” Pamela Springer, president and CEO of Manta, stated in a news release. Manta’s most recent “Pulse of Small Business” national survey of 1,189 small business owners and employees, conducted the day after the Nov. 2 elections SPRINGER revealed that 69 percent believed the Obama administration has hurt small business. Fifty-eight percent responded that they are more confident now that they will be able to grow their business than they were two years ago when the Democrats and President Obama won in the 2008 elections. The majority of respondents, 70 percent, are involved in small businesses with fewer than 10 employees while 20 percent are involved in businesses with 10 to 50 employees, according to Springer. Twenty-two percent of those surveyed said their greatest concern is the nation’s economic outlook, while 21 percent said taxes were their biggest worry. Seventeen percent said the economic outlook in their own community was their top concern, while 15 percent indicated health care was a major concern. “The state has more impact on small business than the federal government. We’re hoping the new administration in Ohio will help

foster growth for small business as they indicated in the election,” said Bill Wersell, director of the Small Business Development Center at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Growth in business is due to opportunities and access to capital. We help small businesses with their approach to lenders through financial analysis so they become more favorable in funding requests,” Wersell said. Several local manufacturers are bidding on new projects with their ability to land those contracts dependent on obtaining funds for expansion, he reported. The Ohio Department of Development is working with Huntington Bank to provide more funding in the state. A statewide clearinghouse is available for small businesses to register their information for funding requests, according to Wersell. “The market is definitely coming back. There may be some certainty after the election, but the verdict is still out,” said Rick Anderson, owner and president of Radco Industries of Toledo. “Ohio saw a dramatic shift to the right that should be favorable to small business.” Anderson said his company is starting to see some real action that involves designing productivity enhancement systems that could increase production by 40 percent for one customer. Radco creates custom design-build equipment for packaging and quality control systems with an experienced, professional workforce, he said. Cleves Delp, chairman and CEO of The Delp Company in Maumee, agrees that the election results will have a positive impact for his small business and the 100 small businesses it serves. “Capitalism will prevail with a renewed spirit that it’s OK for small businesses to spend money on expansion and growth,” Delp said. “When they see the tide changing ,they will take the risk to borrow, spend and hire.”

Kaptur co-sponsors bill to increase spending with small business

The American Small Business League (ASBL) recognized Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, just prior to the election, for her support of legislation that would “infuse the state’s small business community with billions of dollars in existing government infrastructure spending, save thousands of small businesses and create countless jobs.” Kaptur is co-sponsor of HR 2568, the Fairness and Transparency in Contracting Act that would ensure the federal government would meet its 23 percent small business contracting goal. The federal government is mandated by Congress with the goal of awarding 23 percent of the total value of all prime contracts to small businesses. “The bill puts our nation’s small businesses on a level playing field in the constant fight for government contracts. The same big companies have been reaping all the benefits” Kaptur said. As the daughter of a small business owner, Kaptur said she understands the importance of genuine, homegrown small businesses to the life of a community. Her parents owned and operated a family grocery business, Supreme Market in Rossford in the 1950s. “It’s time to stand up for small businesses that are the true engines of sustainable economic growth in our na-

tion,” she said. HR 2568 would reportedly stop large businesses from obtaining federal small business contracts by amending the Small Business Act’s definition of a small business to include “independently owned.” The bill would prevent the federal government from awarding small business contracts to publicly traded firms, because they are publicly owned and would not qualify as independently owned. HR 2568 was referred to the House Subcommittee on Contracting and Technology, according to Kaptur’s office. ASBL reported that the bill would redirect more than $100 billion a year in federal spending to the nation’s 27 million small businesses. Nearly 1 million small businesses in Ohio are receiving only a fraction of the dollars they should be getting in government contracts. Rick Anderson of Radco Industries in Toledo said his company pitched its bread-making system to the U.S. military and hopes to receive some government contracts for it. The ASBL advocates policies that provide the greatest opportunity for small businesses that comprise 98 percent of U.S. companies with fewer than 100 employees. — Staff Reports

Tree-lighting ceremony opens holiday season On Nov. 20, The Town Center at Levis Commons invites you to get into the holiday spirit at the sixth annual Tree-Lighting Ceremony. The evening will be filled with family friendly events and entertainment for those of all ages. The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with the arrival of Santa who will be escorted down the boulevard by fire-throwing baton twirlers from Perrysburg Sophisticates. Santa will be available in his workshop, which is located near the fountain until 9 p.m. for visits and pictures. Please remember to bring your camera. At 7 p.m. local dancers from Julie’s Dance Studio will take the stage and dazzle audience members with a fun-filled holiday performance. Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while the entertainment continues with

live music from local musicians sharing your favorite holiday tunes. Featured artists include Kerry Patrick Clark, Gina Granados and Sheri LaFontaine. A candle-lighting ceremony will lead up to the lighting of the spectacular 50-foot Christmas tree at 8 p.m. With more than 150,000 twinkling lights brought to life, it is a truly magical moment that you won’t want to miss! Aside from the celebrations, the night also represents the start of the season-long charity drive for Hannah’s Socks, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing new socks and undergarments for those in need. Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation for Hannah’s Socks to the event. The tree-lighting ceremony is a grand kick-off to the holiday season, both in spirit and in theme.

Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice The first thing one notices in a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is its color: the deep brown of winter. The dark wheat lager pours a clear amber with a ruby cast. Topped by a frothy head of ivory cream that holds exceptionally well and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The warm aroma of cinnamon and ginger which blends with the roasty sweetness of the malted barley and hint of citrus from the orange peel. And after that first sip the promise is fulfilled. On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.

The Town Center at Levis Commons

Hannah’s Socks provides socks, undergarments for homeless On Thanksgiving Day, 2004, while volunteering at Toledo’s Cherry Street Mission Ministries, Hannah Turner noticed a man who wasn’t wearing socks. Concerned about his feet being cold in the chilly weather, she told her mother Doris that she would give the man the pair that she was wearing. Wanting to help their daughter fulfill a dream, Doris and her husband Vic took Hannah the very next day to collect and donate more than 100 pairs of socks to local shelters.

Since then, Hannah’s Socks has become a successful nonprofit serving more than 50 organizations in Ohio and Michigan. Realizing that socks and undergarments are the mostneeded and least-donated items in shelters, the organization has dedicated its efforts to providing these essentials for those in need. Every holiday season The Town Center at Levis Commons hosts a drive to collect items for this organization.

Donate gently used toys to ‘Play It Forward’ As you are preparing for the holidays this year by shopping for gifts, you might begin to wonder where you will fit more toys in your house. The Town Center at Levis Commons offers a great solution to this dilemma with its second annual Play it Forward Toy Drive. In early January, gently used toys will be collected to donate to local children who were not as fortunate during the holiday season. Last year, The Town Center collected three cargo vans worth of used toys which were then donated to Toledo Day Nursery. The

excitement and gratitude expressed by the children was overwhelming, and based on the first year’s success, Play it Forward will continue in 2011. Donations will be collected in front of Rave Motion Pictures on Friday, Jan. 7 and Saturday, Jan. 8 from Noon to 6 p.m. A local company, Cousino-Harris Disaster Kleen Up, will then sanitize the toys before they are redistributed to a charity. Not only does this event provide toys for local children in need, it also is a great way to recycle toys that are no longer being used.

The drive runs throughout the month of December, and drop-off locations include The Shoe Department, Stride Rite and Second Sole. Donations must be new socks or undergarments only. The Town Center also sup-

ports Hannah’s Socks through its Breakfast with Santa event. This year, the event will be hosted at The Hilton Garden Inn on Dec. 11 with a seating at 8:30 a.m. and another at 10:30 a.m. The cost is $6 per child, $10 per adult and one

sock donation per family. The morning will include a breakfast buffet, photos with Santa and make-and-take craft activities. For tickets, visit www. or call (419) 931-8888.

Helping your elderly parent with COPD-related depression


xperts say more than 1 million people in the United States have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is a chronic lung condition that includes bronchitis, emphysema or both. COPD affects the airways and air sacs within the lungs, which makes breathing difficult and can result in a person becoming less active as the disease progresses. An elderly person who has COPD will easily become depressed, when dealing not only with breathing difficulties but other agerelated problems. One example of COPD-related depression is Martin, age 72. Martin once had a busy lifestyle, playing golf, volunteering at the community center and working in his garden. Diagnosed with COPD six months previously, and uncertain how to manage his breathing difficulty and new medications, Martin stopped all of his activities. Giving up the things he loved to do and sitting at home along with improper diet, he became a victim of depression. Martin’s son Anthony realized his father could not handle the new situation and depression alone. A trip together to Martin’s physician began the steps to dissipating the depression and enabling Martin to return to his social life. Anthony received instructions about his father’s medications and how they were to be used from the doctor and consequently could help his father with medication reminders. The most common types of daily COPD medicines are: Inhaler for daily maintenance: Bronchodilators help relax the muscles around the lungs’ breathing tubes. This reduces shortness of breath and makes breathing easier. Steroids: Corticosteroids, taken in pill form or by inhaling reduce swelling in breathing tubes to quickly make breathing easier. Not commonly for prolonged use.

Oxygen Treatment: Severe COPD will reduce your lungs’ ability to put oxygen into your blood to be carried throughout your body. Martin’s oxygen level was measured to determine if he would need prescribed oxygen therapy. Oxygen is usually prescribed if the oxygen in the blood is low during sleep, exercise or while not active. A reDebra spiratory therapist from an oxygen supply company or home health service can help with learning how to use oxygen. An important factor in Martin’s depression and COPD management was his diet. “A healthy diet can play an important role in the management and treatment of COPD. Finding the right diet can be tricky for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, since they need to eat a healthy diet and maintain their optimal weight to keep COPD symptoms in check,” said Krisha McCoy and Lindsey Marcellin. Maintaining the right nutrition and taking vitamins not only keeps the body healthy but heals the mind, providing emotional well-being. Fad diets or extreme dieting are not appropriate for COPD patients. Extreme weight loss can be as much a hazard as being overweight. A home care nutritionist can help establish a healthy menu and diet plan. With medication and diet under control the final steps to overcoming Martin’s depression were to return to his daily activities. With COPD, an elderly person is more hesitant to leave home, especially if that person’s breathing capacity is not as it used to be. There is a lot of available mobility support for the elderly with small portable oxygen units, walkers, electric scooters and other supportive equipment to help these disabled people

move about in the community. With the help of mobile services and his son at his side to start with, Martin returned to the golf course and community activities. His new diet and return to previous activity helped Martin overcome his symptoms of depression. Studies show the intervention of family ROIDL and friends in helping and supporting elderly people with COPD results in a decrease of depression and a healthier outcome for the patient. The Oxford Journals Age and Ageing states: “It is also worth exploring how family and friends may

be involved in supporting the patient and to encourage social interaction. Educating the spouse, family members and friends about depression may help them to understand the consequences of the disease and to develop coping strategies and in turn may reduce the likelihood of isolation. A very recent study investigated the benefits of emotional support by family and friends and of spiritual beliefs in patients with major depression showed that those with higher perceived emotional support had better outcomes.” (Oxford Journals Age and Ageing Volume 35, No. 5) If you are helping an elder parent with COPD related depression there are community and professional services to help you. Start with your parent’s physician. You can also find

resources for oxygen therapy, home care respiratory treatment, home nursing, home medical equipment and mobile services. The National Care Planning Council,, promotes eldercare resources and lists eldercare services throughout the United States. Debra Roidl, MSW, member of the National Care Planning Council, is a Certified care manager in the local greater Toledo area.

Sight Center works for blind, vision-impaired

By Duane Ramsey


The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio continues to provide valuable services to more than 1,000 residents annually who are blind or visually impaired. The Sight Center’s blend of vision rehabilitation services offers help and hope for continued independent living among people of all ages who are blind or vision-impaired, according to Dawn Christensen, executive director. “We minimize the incidence of blindness through education and prevention. We feel that raising awareness of the blind and vision-impaired while raising funds serves both purposes,” Christensen said. The Sight Center conducted its third annual White Cane Walk in October as its primary public education and fundraising event of the year. The event raised $12,000 to fund services at the Sight Center, more than the $9,000 raised in 2009, according to Sarah Krockmalny, development director. The fun, family-friendly event had about 120 participants take advantage of a chance to walk in the shoes of a person who is blind while raising funds to help the Sight Center serve its clients. This year, the Whitmer High

School Drama Club participated in preparation for its December performance of the “Miracle Worker,” a play about Helen Keller. “For our third year, the results are incredible,” Christensen said. The organization’s fundraising efforts have allowed it to offer some new programs in 2010, she said. The Sight Center added a new program for vocational services for 14-to 21-year-old youth. The Summer Youth Employment program provides training and a fourweek work experience for 14 youth with three young adults being employed permanently. The funds have allowed the organization to hire two new staff members within the past month. Dani Moran joined the Sight Center as children’s

case manager, a new position to network with social workers, schools and other agencies, educating them about the center and connecting people in need with resources. The Sight Center also hired Kevin Dobens, who is blind, to ramp up the Assisted Technology Program for people who need assistance with technology that will help them func-

tion better at home and work. Dobens will work with clients to evaluate their needs and provide training on technical equipment that could help them. “A lot of people have heard of the Sight Center but don’t really know what we do here. A lot of people in need of our services don’t know about us and what we offer,” Christensen said.

When you need care for your child, where do you turn?

The Sight Center serves residents in 16 counties of Northwest Ohio through its headquarters in Toledo and a satellite location in Findlay. Almost 60 percent of the people served are 65 years and older while 15 percent are between 36 and 65 and another 12 percent are from birth to age 17. Almost 60 percent of the people served are residents of Lucas County, the largest in population within its territory. The center obtains about 33 percent of its funds from contributions, bequests and donations, 21 percent from grants, 21 percent from fees for services and 11 percent each from investment income and funds from United Way, according to its 2009 annual report. n SIGHT CONTINUES ON A27

One of the things that Beckman preached earlier this oledo head coach Tim Beckman was not a happy man following his team’s 65-30 drubbing at the season was that championship teams learn to win on the hands of Mid-American Conference West Division road, something he said he learned from former Auburn rival Northern Illinois on the road at Huskie Stadium on head coach Pat Dye when he was a graduate assistant with Nov. 9 on ESPN2. In fact, if you are one of the many people the Tigers in the late ’80s. While I agree wholeheartedly who firmly believe that actions speak louder than words, with that philosophy, it’s also true that championship teams Beckman’s face and demeanor during his postgame press not only also win at home, they’re dominant at home. Take Ohio State, for example. Another conference that night spoke much louder guy Beckman learned from on his journey than anything he said. He was upset — and to becoming a head coach was the Buckeyes’ understandably so — at the debacle that all Jim Tressel, for whom Beckman served as but eliminated the Rockets from their MAC the cornerbacks coach for during the 2005 Championship aspirations. and 2006 seasons at Ohio State. Since Tressel Several factors played into that disapbusted out the sweater vest and became the pointment for both the players and the Buckeyes head coach in 2001, he has comcoaches. First off, it’s one thing to lose, but piled a 62-7 record at Ohio Stadium. it’s another animal to get demolished. SecA lot of that has to do with the fact that ondly, when you have extra time to prepare 100,000-plus Ohio State fans pack “The like Toledo did and the result is nearly a ’Shoe� every Saturday, while the Rockets are complete lack of execution, that really stings. Mike BAUMAN lucky if they can draw upwards of 20,000 in And lastly, when you see something you’ve worked so hard to build destroyed bit by bit right before a facility that has a listed seating capacity of 26,248. That’s sad, considering that Toledo has the best stadium in the your very eyes, that really, really hurts. One thing Beckman and company can take away from MAC and averaged a conference record attendance of the agony of their Nov. 9 defeat is that they’re still bowl eli- 30,014 in 2001. The last time the Rockets drew more than 30,000 for a gible with six wins under their belt, and their last two regular season games will be hosted at the Glass Bowl on Nov. 17 home game was back in 2004 against Bowling Green, when and Nov. 26 against less than stellar conference opponents in 31,981 watched Toledo come back from a 27-7 halftime Bowling Green and Central Michigan. The Falcons were 2-8 deficit to defeat its’ archrival Falcons 49-41. Unfortunately, overall with a 1-5 conference mark, while the Chippewas are starting from behind has been a trend for the Rockets this season, as they’ve trailed after the first quarter of play in 3-7 with a 2-5 MAC record. However, a major concern has to be the fact that home each of their four home games thus far. The difference is has not been where the heart is for Toledo since Beckman that Toledo only came back to win two of those contests. After the good, old-fashioned shellacking the Huskies took over as head coach of the Rockets in December 2008. Toledo is just 5-4 in the Glass Bowl during Beckman’s put on the Rockets, Beckman and company need to do tenure, which began with the 2009 campaign.

GM reports $2B 3Q profit ahead of stock offering By Tom Krisher and Dee-Ann Durbin Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) — Strong profits on new cars and trucks helped General Motors Co. earn $2 billion in the third quarter, enhancing the company’s appeal as it nears the upcoming initial public stock offering. The third-quarter earnings of $1.20 per share nearly match what GM made in the first two quarters of the year combined, aided by profits from overseas and healthy revenue from North America, the company said Nov. 10. The earnings were boosted by higher prices from newly introduced models such as the Buick LaCrosse, a midsize luxury sedan. They also were another indication of a widespread recovery among global automakers. Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Chrysler and Ford all reported improved results in the most recent quarter as auto sales slowly rise. The strong quarter meant that GM met projections it made recently that net income for the quarter would be $1.9 billion to $2.1 billion. It was the third straight profitable quarter for GM, which needed $50 billion in U.S. government aid to make it through bankruptcy protection last year. The company has repaid or plans to repay taxpayers $9.5 billion, and the government hopes to get back the remaining $40 billion with the Nov. 18 common stock offering and several follow-up sales. The latest results reversed a $908 million loss, or 73 cents per share, in the third quarter of last year, a short quarter for GM because it spent the first nine days in bankruptcy protection. The Detroit automaker posted $34.1 billion in revenue for the Julythrough-September quarter, up 35 percent from the $25.1 billion in the shortened period last year. GM had said recently that revenue could reach $34 billion for the quarter. Revenue has been steadily increasing this year, largely due to gains in North America and explosive sales growth in China. For the quarter, GM reported strong profits in all of its regions but Europe, where it lost $559 million. The company reported $2.1 billion in profits from North America, and its international operations, including Asia and Latin America, made $646 million. The earnings per share figure for the quarter was adjusted for a threefor-one stock split approved by GM’s board last week in advance of the initial public offering. The third-quarter earnings come

in the middle of a two-week “road show’’ in which GM executives are fanning out to U.S. and European money centers to sell investors on the upcoming IPO. The positive thirdquarter performance should help them make their case. But investors likely will have questions about the losses in Europe and how GM will handle increasing competition that’s coming in the U.S. for several key GM models. For example, the new Chevrolet Cruze compact now is the newest car in its class in the U.S., but Ford, Honda and others soon will unveil strong new products. Another problem that surfaced in GM’s earnings report: its global market share fell to 11.5 percent from 11.9 percent in the third quarter of 2009. The company said its share partly declined because it saw fewer sales to rental, corporate and government fleets. Fleet sales accounted for a little more than a quarter of the company’s sales in the latest period, compared with 34 percent of its sales in the second quarter. GM said it ended the quarter with $35.8 billion in cash, up from $33.6 billion in the previous quarter, and $8.6 billion in debt, up from $8.2 billion. GM said the increase in debt was primarily due to unfavorable fluctuations in currency, including a stronger Canadian dollar and a weaker British pound. In the stock sale, three of GM’s four owners — the U.S. government, Canadian and Ontario governments and a union health care trust — will sell 365 million shares, or about a quarter of the company’s outstanding common stock, for between $26 and $29 a share. The IPO will raise about $10 billion for the three owners and allow the largest, the U.S. government, to reduce its stake in the company from 61 percent to just over 40 percent. The reduced stake is symbolically important for GM, because some Americans resented the company’s taxpayer funded bailout. The perception that GM stood for “Government Motors’’ has hurt the company’s car sales, GM has claimed. The U.S. Treasury will sell 264 million shares and will make about $7 billion if the shares sell in the middle of the $26 to $29 price range. The Canadian governments and union trust are expected to make about $3 billion. GM also plans to raise $3 billion by selling 60 million preferred shares for $50 each. The preferred shares pay a set dividend and become common stock in three years. GM will use the money to shore up its pension plans

and pay debt. For the first nine months of the year, GM made $4.2 billion, a dramatic turnaround from gigantic losses of pre-

vious years. In the four years before the 2009 bankruptcy, GM lost more than $80 billion because it was saddled by enormous debt and costly labor con-

tracts. But the debt was dramatically reduced and labor costs were cut in the government-funded restructuring, and now GM is smaller and leaner.

Author Jeff Kinney takes pride in ‘Wimpy Kid’

By Jeff McGinnis

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

What would make authors most proud of their own work? When several of their books become bestsellers? When they spawn a series of movies? Maybe when someone decides a giant balloon depicting their lead character should be seen by millions on Thanksgiving day? “The Macy’s Parade Day group approached us this year and said that they thought the world was ready for a Greg Heffley balloon,” said Jeff Kinney, author of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series. “So we signed on, and on Thanksgiving Day, I’m gonna get to see a giant version of Greg Heffley floating down the Grand Avenues here in New York. “I have no idea what kind of emotion is going to hit me when that happens, but I’m really looking forward to experiencing it.” There have been a lot of moments to make Kinney proud in the past few years. The first installment of the “Wimpy Kid” series came out in April 2007 — today, more than 32 million copies of Kinney’s books are in print around the globe. A feature film based on the series came out in March, grossing more than $64 million and a sequel will be released next year. He was named one of Time Magazine’s Most Influential People in 2009. There is certainly a lot for Kinney to live up to, and he said he likes it that way. “There’s a lot of pressure, and I’m afraid of the pressure going away. I’m afraid of sort of resting on my laurels. In my house, in my office, I don’t have anything up on the walls. I don’t have any ‘Wimpy Kid’ things around, because I don’t want to look at those and say, ‘You know, I’ve actually done all right for myself.’ I want to stay hungry.” The fifth book in the series, “The Ugly Truth,” was released Nov. 9. Kinney said he thinks his books’ success relies on his young audience’s ability to connect with his characters.

“I think it’s because Greg Heffley is really flawed. He’s not a miniature adult — he’s a real kid. He’s got a lot of problems, mostly extending from his approach to life. And I think that he’s funny — he’s got a funny point of view, and kids just take to that.” He also said he tries not to condescend to his audience, or shoehorn in lessons for them to learn. “That’s not what these books are. There are plenty of books that have a good lesson and they moralize to kids,” Kinney said. “But my books are more about entertainment and they’re for the savvy kid who is looking to not be written down to. The books feel like they’re written by a kid. So I think they’re just a different thing, and I’m OK with that.” The biggest step for Kinney and his characters this year was the step onto the big screen, one which the author was heavily involved in. “I’ve had probably as much creative influence as an author can expect to have in the moviemaking process. Usually an author is not involved in the process at all,” he said. “My lawyer described it to me as selling a pencil — you know, you have a property, you hand it across the counter and that’s the end of the transaction. “I was very involved, all the way from choosing the director, to casting, to helping with the writing, and I was on set for more than half of the filming in Vancouver. So, I was really involved.” The first film’s success has certainly opened more doors for Kinney, though he said he’s in no rush to get into projects outside of “Wimpy” just yet. “I would love to have another success that’s not related to ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid,’ but I think that I’m getting my fill of branching out,” he said. “I’d love to do a television show, or some other things. But I need to make sure that I’m doing a good job of it. I shouldn’t be going to television just because I can. I

greatest pride of all his accomplishments he’s seen in the past three and a half years, it’s one of the simplest that moves him the most. “I think that what makes me most proud is the accident of writing for reluctant readers. I never set out to write for kids even, and what I had envisioned as a 1,000-page book for adults got turned into several books for children,” he said. “And I get emails from parents and teachers around the world who say that ‘This is the first book that my reluctant reader has read.’ And I think that’s a great byproduct of this whole experience.”

KINNEY should do it only if I have a good enough idea.” When asked what gives him the

She just turned 28. What’s next? “My biggest goal is to have a life,” she said and laughed. “I think once I was 13 and even before that — that’s the funny thing that people don’t see — in Dallas, where I lived, I sang in a show every Saturday night from the time I was 7 until the time I got my record deal when I was 11, so it’s something that I’ve been doing my whole life. “I’m wanting to write more as far as the music side of things and continue to just grow as an artist,” she said. “Family is really important to me. Who knows what will happen in the next few years; I’m just trying to roll with it. There’re a lot of good things that I think are coming my way.” It’s a work in progress. In 2009, Rimes filed for divorce from her husband after meeting actor Eddie Cibrian while filming “Northern Lights.” “I think I’m very honest with my experience, and I think there are women out there that have been through a divorce and that can relate,” Rimes said during a call from a tour stop in Charlotte, N.C. “We all are faced with different challenges, and I think you can either sit there and wallow in your misery, or you can move forward. No one can help you other than you, and no one can make things better; you have to do it yourself.” Rimes is moving forward with her music, working on two discs — an untitled CD featuring some of her own material and “Lady and Gentlemen,” a collection of cover songs. “I wanted [‘Lady and Gentlemen’] to

be all my favorite classic country songs originally recorded by men but now from a woman’s perspective, so a bit of a twist on it. And I called Vince Gill and asked if he would produce it, and we just had a blast working on this album,” she said. “ ‘Swingin’,’ the first single off of it, was something that I grew up listening to from basically the time I was born, and I just love the song.” She returned to the studio to record a couple of bonus tracks, including a new song and current single, “Crazy Women,” and a new version of “Blue,” the song that catapulted her to stardom in 1996. “I think the sound of the album kind of takes me back and my fans back to that original sound of ‘Blue,’ and I thought what a cool way as an addition to the record for my fans 15 years later to have a new version of that song with me as an adult not a 13-year-old,” she said. Fans can hear songs from the forthcoming “Lady and Gentlemen” and some new material, including “What Have I Done,” when Rimes plays a 7:30 p.m. concert Nov. 19 at the Ritz Theatre in Tiffin. Tickets range from $40 to $90. Hunter Hayes will open. When she gets some downtime, Rimes likes to cook. “It’s kind of cathartic, you know, being able to cook for people that you love, to see them enjoy it, and just kind of chill and have a glass of wine,” she said. “I’m excited to be one of the chefs in the kitchen this Thanksgiving and actually be confident at it and know I won’t burn anything.”

Water follows channels. Love and friendship are highlighted all week. Feelings are clarified and cement your certainty about preferences to move forward or retreat. Someone arouses suspicion midweek. Competitive spirits nudge you to show off skills Saturday.

Redraw the map. Final judgments on important issues arrive Monday. Relationships move toward improved balance and equity, but someone jumps the fence and acts on sheer impulse after Friday. Review agreements again with better understanding.

Leaky valves. Confidence soars as the week starts; long-term efforts yield results this week. Situations where facts have been ignored can erupt midweek and become all too real. Friendships evolve into deeper relationships after Thursday, as shared values encourage the bonding processes.

Elizabeth Hazel is a professional tarotist-astrologer and author. She gives readings every Wednesday at Attic on Adams above Manos Greek Restaurant. She may be contacted at (c) 2010

Hope is a 5-year-old cream-colored domestic longhair cat. She was found wandering around the streets of Toledo and was brought into the humane society so she could find a new home. Hope is underweight from living on the street and her beautiful coat had to be shaved down to remove all of the tangles in her fur. You can tell this kitty is happy to have a warm place to stay and all of the food she can eat. When you enter her cat room, she will be the first to call out to you asking for attention. Hope enjoys being held and absolutely LOVES to give kisses. Hope prefers a calmer lifestyle. She doesn’t like to be handled roughly and may not be suitable for a home with young children. Loud noises will send her into hiding and she is less than thrilled to be around other cats. Hope dreams of becoming a pampered princess and is waiting for a huge animal lover to come along and spoil her. Hope 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.
