mong the many items brought before Toledo City Council on Nov. 16, two illustrated the extreme range of financial decisions that body routinely faces. On the lighter, less urgent side, a Toledo Symphony Orchestra representative asked Council for $10,000 toward its 2011 trip to New York City’s Carnegie Hall. The symphony has reportedly raised $220,000 of the $250,000 it needs to make the trip. There is no questioning the quality, impact and importance of the symphony, but there is no place for public money in such an endeavor. With nearly six months before the May performance, there must be other ways for this respected organization to bridge its funding gap than to ask for taxpayer money. Councilman D. Michael Collins’ suggestion that council not only provide the asked-for $10,000 but the whole $30,000 may have been sarcasm, but it was met with such enthusiasm there would be no surprise if council approved jab, at our expense. Thomas F. Pounds theLight years away from such relative luxuries, Director of Public Utilities Tom Crothers made a pitch for some significant increases in water and sewer rates. During a meeting with the Toledo Free Press editorial board Nov. 18, Crothers presented two dozen slides that carefully outlined the history and future of the water and sewer system. Knowing that some of the system dates back to the Civil War era, it is amazing that as much of the 1,100 miles of line is in as good a shape as it is. Crothers is extremely careful to not undermine confidence in the water system, the region’s true lifeblood, but he does not hesitate to put the system’s needs in context with the national crisis of ignored infrastructure of bridges, utility lines and water and sewer pipes. Council is faced with a double whammy: The rate increases are going to have a major impact on every taxpayer in the city (and those in surrounding areas who buy water from Toledo), but there is really no option to deny the request. If the system isn’t maintained and repaired as needed, there could be catastrophic consequences. I hope Toledoans attend the first public hearing on this matter, planned for 4 p.m. Nov. 22 in Council chambers. Crothers will make the same presentation to the public he previewed for us and will be open to the same questions. Our water and sewer lines are out of sight and out of mind, relics our great-grandparents left for us to use. But ignoring them carries a price, and Council will have to approve the rate increases to keep the systems invisible. It will hurt, as any major investment does, but the integrity and viability of the water system cannot be anything close to compromised. So, Council has to make choices about luxuries and choices about necessities. In these two cases, the choices are not quick and easy, but the appropriate outcomes are clear. Council does not want to find itself in the position of literally funding someone to fiddle (or play violin) while the city’s water network burns. Thomas F.

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

Grumpy’s, a popular Downtown Toledo lunch spot, is turning frowns upside down for breakfast. Served Monday through Friday from 7 to 11 a.m., Grumpy’s breakfast menu features a variety of breakfast sandwiches, including a build-yourown option. “It’s just been a lunch menu for many years — that’s what we’re known for — so a lot of people are surprised we’re serving breakfast, but HOSTETLER pleasantly surprised,” said new co-owner Dustin Hostetler, grandson of the original owners. “Two weeks in and we already have regulars.” The addition of Wi-Fi and ample outlets has made the new breakfast hours popular with the early morning business-meeting crowd because it’s quieter and less crowded than at lunchtime, Hostetler said. One convert is regular customer Josh Goldberg, who said he already loved Grumpy’s lunches, and its breakfast met all expectations as well. “Best meal I’ve had in Toledo,” Goldberg said. “The sandwich was perfect — egg thicker than anywhere else in Toledo, cheese just melted on and I didn’t have to wait a minute.” Hostetler and his aunts, Jennifer Shemak and Sara Bauman, daughters of the original owners, took over the business after the death of their grandmother/mother, Connie Horn, in late September, and added the breakfast menu in November. “We figured we were here prepping for lunch already, why not open our doors,” said Hostetler, who worked as a busboy, dishwasher and sous chef at Grumpy’s during high school and college. “Grandma got to know all the customers, and we’re attempting to do that as much as possible. I’m already getting to know the

regulars. It’s fun — a lot of people really treat this like a second home and treat us like family.” Shemak has cooked Grumpy’s fare since its beginning 27 years ago. She’s the Jennifer behind the lunchtime “Jenn-wiches” and Jennifer’s Special House Salad. Now she has another namesake. Jennifer’s Special Breakfast Wrap ($4, ham, egg, Swiss cheese, jalapeño, roasted veggies and pesto in a grilled wrap) has been a favorite, Hostetler said, with one man coming in every morning so far to get one. Another favorite is the World Class Morning Buns ($3.50), basically a cinnamon-and-sugar-topped cross between a croissant and a brioche, which comes with honey cream cheese dip, Hostetler said. “People have been coming in just for that or picking them up

on their way to work,” Hostetler said. Other breakfast sandwiches include The Shorty ($4, bacon, egg, cheddar and tomato on ciabatta roll) and David’s Favorite, named after a longtime dishwasher ($4, bacon, egg, American cheese and jelly on toasted white bread). For those wanting something a little healthier, there’s the Hot Bod ($4, egg whites, roasted veggies and Muenster cheese on a toasted whole wheat bagel). Or there’s the option to build your own breakfast sandwich. “I’m hoping this gets people to make really adventurous sandwiches,” Hostetler said. “You can do some really crazy combinations.”

Freshly baked muffins ($3), cinnamon buns ($2.50) and Three Egg & Cheese Sliders ($5) round out the breakfast menu. Hostetler said nothing has been taken off of the lunch menu — the popular Garbage Salad is untouched — but new additions include pulled-pork sliders and Scott’s Italian Burger Sub, named after a favorite regular. “We haven’t changed the things people love about the place,” Hostetler

said. “We’re playing around with more specials, trying sandwiches for a week, more daily stuff.” Hostetler is an artist whose work, under the moniker UPSO, occasionally appears in Toledo Free Press Star. Reach Grumpy’s, 34. S. Huron St., at (419) 241-6728 or follow them at www.facebook.com/grumpysdeli or on Twitter (grumpysdeli) for weekly specials and exclusives. Full hours are Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

COURTS

Andrew Zepeda indicted in break-in investigation By Kristen Rapin-Criswell

Toledo Free Press Special SectioNS Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

Radio personality Andrew Zepeda, owner of Andrew Z’s Sports Pizzeria, has been indicted by a Wood County grand jury for theft, failure to remit and file sales tax as well as complicity to breaking and entering. Zepeda was charged with complicity to the break-in at his restaurant that occurred between Oct. 15 and Oct. 18, said Paul Dobson, Wood County prosecuting attorney. The charge is a fifth degree felony punishable by up to one year in prison. “The allegation is that he assisted in doing it. To be complicit you have to more than just know about it, you must have aided or enabled some act in furtherance of it, as well as have the knowledge that that’s what’s happening,” Dobson said. In addition, Zepeda was indicted for theft and failure to remit sales tax, both felonies of the fourth degree. A news release from the Wood County prosecutor’s office said it is alleged that Zepeda “failed to provide the appropriate tax amounts to the State of Ohio in connection with his business from March to December of 2010.” A felony of the fourth degree has a maximum sentence of up to 18 months in prison. Zepeda is scheduled to appear in court Dec.

10 at 1 p.m. Beau Harvey, Zepeda’s attorney, was reached but said he would not make a comment before speaking with Zepeda. Paul Zepeda, Andrew Zepeda’s uncle, and David Wright were also indicted in connection with the alleged break-in at Andrew Z’s Sports Pizzeria. Wright was indicted on one count of breaking and entering and Paul Zepeda was indicted on one count of complicity to breaking and entering. Both charges are a fifth degree felony. Wright is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 24 at 1 p.m., and Paul Zepeda Dec. 10 at 1 p.m. with his nephew. During a news conference Nov. 17, before the indictment, Zepeda denied any involvement in the break-in and maintained his innocence. “I 100 percent have nothing to do with this,” he said. The radio personality said he has been “targeted by the police” since the beginning of the investigation. “Since the break-in happened, in my opinion, the Perrysburg police have targeted me, and been on a witch hunt to smear my name and find evidence that could find me somehow linked to this case, which I have nothing to do with,” Zepeda said. Zepeda said there have been rumors that have surrounded this case, but he is in no way

associated with the break-in. “The leaking and the speculation and the rumors, they’re getting it from somewhere. If it’s not coming from me, the only people that are involved are me and the police department. So someone’s leaking something,” he said. Paul Zepeda and Wright have already been charged in connection to a break-in.. Paul Zepeda was arrested Nov. 2 and charged with complicity to breaking and entering/theft. Wright was arrested Oct. 28 and charged with breaking and entering. Both charges are fifthdegree felonies. Paul and Wright reside at the same Maumee address with Zepeda’s mother. Zepeda said Wright had been kicked out of his house and needed a place to stay. Wright had only lived at that address for a few months, he said. Wright has already admitted to the crime and police are listening to him in an attempt to connect Zepeda to the case, Zepeda said. “They have the man in custody responsible for the break-in. His name is David Wright. He’s confessed, and he’s had multiple run-ins with the law. I have his rap sheet, it’s pages and pages long, including felonies and resisting arrests, failure to comply. He’s not a good guy,” Zepeda said. “This is the word the Perrysburg Police are taking against someone who’s never been in trouble — [I’m

ZEPEDA doing] nothing but trying to help the community.” On Sept. 30, Zepeda was evicted from his lease at Levis Commons and the building’s landlord, Hill Partners Inc., was in charge of the building during the Oct. 15 break-in. According to Perrysburg Police Deputy Chief Mike Gilmore, the break-in involved the safe, but other things could be missing as well. Gilmore said the investigation is ongoing and evidence could yield more arrests. Paul Zepeda and Wright faced a preliminary hearing Nov. 9 at 9:30 a.m. at the Perrysburg Municipal Court. As of Nov. 9, Wright is in custody with a $10,000 bond and Paul Zepeda pleaded not guilty to his charges Nov. 16.

CITY OF TOLEDO

Bell’s 2011 budget relies on trash service changes

By Kristen Rapin-Criswell

Toledo Free Press Special Sections Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

Asset sales and the elimination of refuse pickup services are goals of the balanced 2011 General Fund budget Toledo Mayor Mike Bell presented Nov. 15. “People don’t want new taxes and they don’t want new fees, so based on that, is how we framed our budget,” Bell said during a press conference Nov. 15 announcing his new budget. For 2011, the city has predicted an income revenue of $214.4 million, but has a general fund operating budget of $229 million. To bridge the roughly $14.5 million gap between the incoming revenue and spending, the city will transfer funds and sell assets. The city transferred $6.3 million from the capital improvements fund, allowed by the voters in March, and $3.3 million in trust fund assets to the general fund. The city also projects selling $4.85 million in assets, which are part of 2010 real estate negotiations in progress but that aren’t expected to be finished by New Year’s, Bell said. Patrick McLean, finance director for Toledo, said the city based its general fund budget on three budgetary principles; conservative revenue projections, pay today’s debts today and live within its means.

The city has assumed no new taxes and accounted for less revenue sharing coming from the state, McLean said. In addition the city has increased its efforts to collect delinquent taxes and predicts nearly $4 million in collection from past due taxes, BELL McLean said. As a portion of the 2011 budget goes toward making deferral payments to employees, the city is trying a new approach, McLean said. “We have been hampered over the last couple of years by pushing back what we owe to some of our employees until the following years. We have in this budget a significant amount of deferral payments, so we tried to keep it so that that is the last time we have to do that,” he said. “It’s time to suck it up and pay our bills so we can be done with it, so we can start fresh in 2012.” Among tactics to cut spending and live within the city’s means was the complete elimination of the city refuse system. The city hopes to instead contract with a Lucas County Solid Waste Management District. If a Lucas County Solid Waste Management District is created, and

in place by Sept. 1, the city would save $2.8million, Bell said. The city’s current refuse costs are $16.3 million a year, but its fees are only bringing in $8.9 million. “There is about a $7 million gap in what we receive and what we have to spend. That model does not have sustainability,” Bell said. The city could increase its trash fee to $15 and maintain the current system it has, but voters in the past election made it clear they want no new taxes or fees, Bell said. A countywide refuse system would increase the number of households within the trash district making it more attractive for an outside firm to bid on based on the economy of scale, said David Welch, the city’s director of public service. “If you put them all together, as we’re moving toward a region, it makes a lot of sense for lowering the cost throughout the county,” Welch said. The mayor sent his proposal to the Lucas County Commissioners, who will ultimately have to decide to implement a countywide trash system. The 2011 budget also allows for a 50 person fire class and a 25 person police class. The classes will ultimately save the city money by cutting down on overtime costs, Bell said. Even with the new classes, the budget predicts $7 million in overtime

costs for 2011. “The combination of retirement, along with playing catch up with our police and fire classes is going to mean our overtime is a huge, huge number, but it will start to go down in 2012,” McLean said. Other savings, while minor, could come from the implementation of an early retirement program, McLean said. Both Bell and McLean expect things to gradually get better. “The next year is not going to be easy,” Bell said. “We still have to be conservative in how we approach these issues. We can’t go off and go into some wild spending frenzy anticipating that the economy is going to change. We have to play it extremely conservative. This budget that we have

plays it very conservative.” Wilma Brown, president of City Council, said she appreciates receiving the budget on time, but doesn’t foresee Council passing a budget until March, she said. “We’re going to be over this line by line and I’m going to hear about it every day,” Brown said. Brown would also like to see more details surrounding the refuse-proposal before moving ahead with such a system for the city, she said. “I want to see details before we let go of our trucks, because once we’re out of it, it’s very hard to get back in it,” Brown said. According to the city charter, Council has until the end of March to pass a balanced budget.

TECHNOLOGY

By Duane Ramsey

TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

Metzgers Printing + Mailing in Toledo is installing a rooftop photovoltaic solar array in partnership with Solscient Energy of Toledo. The 9,500-square-foot solar array is one of the largest rooftop solar installations by an Ohio-based privately held company, according to Joe Metzger, president of the commercial printing company. “Most large solar installations are at public institutions, but to be one of the largest solar installations by a privately held company in Ohio is something our team and customers can be proud of,” Metzger said in a prepared statement. “It’s another important step in our long-term plan to expand our green printer status.” Metzgers was the first printer in Northwest Ohio to receive certification from the Forest Stewardship Council for its company-wide recycling efforts, he said. The solar installation includes 4,095 square feet of panels on the main

printing plant on Arco Drive and another 5,444 square feet on the adjacent mailing and fulfillment center. The total solar array is capable of producing up to 125,580 watts at any time during peak conditions and up to 144,417 kilowatt-hours in a 12-month period, according to a press release. “This new solar array will be a showcase for all who are interested in solar energy for their business,” said Granger Souder, co-founder of Solscient Energy with partner Matt Longthorne. Solscient Energy provided the design, development and installation of the solar array system for Metzgers. The fully integrated solar energy finance and development firm is a tenant at the Clean and Alternative Energy Incubator on the University of Toledo campus. The solar project is being installed by local contractor from Nordman Roofing and Romanoff Electric, both of Toledo. Both solar arrays are expected to be operational by Dec. 1, Metzger said. The rooftop solar installation is expected to produce enough energy from the solar panels to generate about 13 percent of the firm’s annual power

usage, which costs about $25,000 per month, he said. The balance of the power generated when Metzgers is not using it will be returned to the grid and used by First Energy, which pays them the same amount for the electricity that commercial customers pay, Souder said. Solscient is partnering with commercial property owners for solar installations with no upfront investment or cost, almost immediate energy savings, no maintenance or operational obligations, and long-term protection against rising energy costs, Souder said. Solscient provides turn-key development of solar applications for commercial property owners. The customdesigned systems include photovoltaic panels, inverters, combiner boxes, meters, electrical systems, racking and related balance of systems equipment. “We design and engineer the system to accommodate the existing roofing material and structural configuration like we did for the 1975 rooftop at Metzgers. Our systems are designed for grid-connected, distributed generation applications at the location where the electricity will be

consumed,” Souder said. “They put the whole project together for us,” Metzger said. “Installing solar panels helps limit our company’s impact on the environment.” The solar energy generated is equal to annual environmental equivalents of 104 metric tons of carbon dioxide

emissions, 241 barrels of imported oil, 11,666 gallons of gasoline and 237,986 miles driven in a passenger car, based on estimates by the clean energy resource calculator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Metzgers employs 85 full-time and 35 part-time team members.

STORMING BACK

Blank family sharing Thanksgiving with relatives 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 bbarhite@toledofreepress.com

When the Blanks sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, they know exactly why they will be giving thanks. “I am thankful to be alive and just to be surrounded by family and friends and I am fortunate to have survived the tornado and to live in such a good community,” Julie BLANK Blank said. “And she’s thankful for a great husband,” Ed Blank chimed in. The Blanks usually host Thanksgiving dinner, but this year they will be going to their nephew’s house. “With them rebuilding this year, they don’t really have the room, so my wife and I offered and we are glad to have them here,” Dr. Kyle Williamson said. Kyle remembers finding out about his aunt and uncle’s house. “I am the type of person who is outside watching the sky. I am a physician who said if medicine didn’t work out, I wanted to be a storm chaser,” Kyle said. But on June 5, he and his family sought safety in their basement and

then went to bed after the storm had passed. It wasn’t until the next morning that he checked his phone and learned that Julie and her family had lost their house. When he found out a toddler on his aunt and uncle’s street had died, it made him think about losing his own young sons. “I went upstairs, cried and hugged my wife,” Kyle said. Julie said when they have the room to host Thanksgiving, “it is a pretty big crowd.” Between them, they have three grown boys who come, depending on plans with other relatives. Julie also invites her sister and brother-in-law for dinner, as well as Kyle and his family. Ed and Julie also FAMILY: have a teenage son, Casey. “It is going to be different not being in the house, but I am looking forward to going somewhere because I have never been anywhere,” Julie said. Ed doesn’t get out of making the turkey and stuffing, though. “Ed usually does it and will do it this year,” Julie said. The Blanks are still determining if Ed will make it the night before and cart it over to Kyle’s place in Perrysburg or if the cooking will be done that morning. Ed said he is thankful for family, friends and the overwhelming support provided in the days that followed the tornado.

“It is a guilty pleasure to see how many people survived the tornado while never forgetting those who did not,” he said. “I am thankful to live in and be a part of a wonderful community,” Ed

said. “I will never forget those first responders who were on the scene in just minutes and for many days after June 5. The memories and pictures will be etched in my mind forever of those who were at the sites of all of the

ARTS

n A11

By Sarah Ottney

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

An exhibition of never-beforeseen works from Ohio artist Aminah Robinson opens at the Toledo Museum of Art’s (TMA) Glass Pavilion on Friday, Nov. 19. “Aminah Robinson: Voices that Taught Me How to Sing,” features the 70-year-old artist’s Ragmud Collection, which was recently acquired by TMA for its permanent collection. Robinson will be at TMA 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20 to sign copies of the exhibition catalog. Robinson’s style combines traditional art materials with found and everyday objects to create two- and three-dimensional works of art, according to a news release. Created over a span of 22 years, the Ragmud Collection is a 10-volume set of artists’ books that consists of sculptural pieces, buttons, drawings, poems, personal stories, books-within-books, extended pullouts and cases. All of the pieces incorporate storytelling, with recurring themes being her childhood neighborhood in Columbus and her exploration of her African-American heritage, including

ROBINSON travels to Africa. In 2007, Amy Gilman, TMA’s associate curator of contemporary and modern art, along with the former director of TMA, visited Robinson at her home to ask about acquiring some of her work. It was during that visit that the books that make up the Ragmud Collection were discovered. “No one other than Aminah knew it existed until the visit to Columbus,” Gilman said in the release. The new exhibit, which is free and runs through Feb. 27, is the first time the collection has been shown publicly.

The Ragmud Collection is not quite books, not quite sculptures, not quite paintings — it’s more like all of the above incorporated into one, said Teri Sharp, public relations manager for TMA. “It’s just absolutely delightful; it’s like patchwork,” Sharp said. “All these wonderful things she’s created with found artwork. It’s fanciful and meaningful. I think people are really going to enjoy it.” The volumes will be displayed in special triangular cases that allow visitors to see each book from all sides, Sharp said. A 20-minute video of the artist explaining her work will play in a loop. There will also be large-scale images of elements of the books displayed. In addition, supplies will be provided and visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to contribute to a community book in the style of Robinson, Sharp said. Robinson, who was awarded a prestigious MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2004, will return to Toledo in January to work on a project with inner-city elementary school students. For more information, visit the website www.toledomuseum.org or call (419) 255-8000.

Fundraiser at Toledo Club to benefit LGBT causes By Sarah Ottney

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

The Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla, a major social event for the area’s gay and lesbian community, is gearing up for its 33rd annual Christmas Dinner Dance fundraiser, which might be a little more rousing than usual. New this year — and perhaps a Toledo Club first — drag queens will perform. “We’ve never had that, especially at Toledo Club,” said event committee member Rick Cornett. “They are a little conservative, but they are letting us do that. We’ve got some classy-looking drag queens and they are each going to do two numbers.” Another new addition is a fashion show, which will feature clothing from Cityboyz Fashion Menswear, a men’s clothing company based in Toledo. The event, which is set for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Toledo Club, 235 14th St., will also feature photos with Santa Claus, door prizes, a 50-50 raffle and a silent auction. This year, proceeds will benefit the HIV treatment center at the University of Toledo Medical Center, AIDS Resource Center Ohio and Rainbow Area Youth, which offers peerbased support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning teenagers in the Toledo area. “We wanted to especially work with Rainbow Area Youth this year because of all the recent bullying of gay youth and suicides,” Cornett said. “We wanted to bring awareness to their cause and bring them some money.” Last year’s event raised about $3,000, Cornett said. “It’s important to bring awareness to causes within the gay community,” Cornett said. “So often the main-

EDUCATION

EMA, Red Cross prepare public for winter By Kristen Rapin-Criswell

Toledo Free Press Special Sections Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

As the temperature drops, individuals and families need to prepare themselves for winter-related emergencies. To better prepare the public for winter, the Red Cross of Greater Toledo and the Lucas County Emergency Management Agency (EMA)

will address cold emergencies in its next Ready U session, “COLD — It’s a Killer.” The third session of the yearlong series will discuss snow emergencies, blizzard conditions, ice storms and symptoms of cold injuries, among other topics, said Tom Barnhizer, deputy director of the Lucas County EMA. “We ask the public to think about what kind of conditions can occur

in the winter and use their common sense on how they are going to respond when those conditions do come up,” he said. Barnhizer said there are a number of winter emergencies that can occur in Northwest Ohio and the public needs to be prepared. SPENCER The first type of emergency would be a snow emergency. Each level snow emergency has its own risk, but Level 3 emergencies are the most severe, Barnhizer said. “The worst case would be a Level 3. Everyone should stay off road unless it’s an absolute emergency, because people may not be able to get where they need to go and become stranded or isolated,” he said. Barnhizer noted that the conditions associated with any level snow emergency also pose a threat to those with health conditions; those with pre-existing conditions are at risk for strokes or heart attacks while shoveling the heavy wet snow, he said. Another winter emergency is an ice storm. Each year, Lucas County

averages at least 1 to 3 ice storms, Barnhizer said. Ice is heavy and can cause weak structures to collapse and break power lines. Families and individuals should be prepared for possible power outages lasting at least three days, Barnhizer said. Individuals and families should have kits at home with food, water and other necessities in case of a power outage or snowstorm. In addition to home kits, individuals should also have a kit in the car in case the car gets stranded, he said. Some things the kit should have are food, water and a sleeping bag. One basic step individuals can take to prepare their car for the winter is to always have half a tank of gas, Barnhizer said. A car can be heated for up to three days on a halftank of gas if it’s turned on and off to warm sporadically during that time, he said. If someone is stranded in a storm he or she shouldn’t leave the car either, because a vehicle is easier to find in a snowstorm than an individual person. Cold temperatures can also pose risks of hypothermia and frostbite so every time people go out they should layer up, Barnhizer said. The cold poses an increased threat to the elderly, the young and the sick. “Every type of emergency condition or disaster has its own unique features that pose hazards to the public. It’s important to understand how they can affect us,” Barnhizer said. “We want to make sure people understand how their individual preparedness can affect their ability to survive.” “Blizzard” Bill Spencer of 13abc will lead the hour-long event, which starts at 7 p.m. in the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library Main Branch, 325 N. Michigan St. on Nov. 22. Representatives from the Lucas County EMA, such as Barnhizer, as well as representatives from the Red Cross will be on hand to answer any coldemergency-related questions individuals might have. Funding for Ready U comes from a combination of grant money from the Department of Homeland Security to the Lucas County EMA and donations from The Andersons.

Sister Paulette Schroeder works with children in the West Bank. She has lived there more Than two years.

Tiffin sister works for peace in the West Bank By Sarah Ottney

Sister Paulette Schroeder spends her days working for peace and justice in one of the most unstable regions of the world. The 66-year-old member of the Sisters of St. Francis in Tiffin has been living in Hebron for more than two years as part of a peacekeeping mission. Located south of Jerusalem, Hebron is the largest city in the West Bank. Along with other members of a group called Christian Peacemakers, Schroeder monitors checkpoints, accompanies children to school and mediates on behalf of the families of people taken to jail. Schroeder, a former Toledo Central Catholic teacher, said Hebron — full of roadblocks, checkpoints, closures, curfews, soldiers, guns, inaccessible or restricted roads and lack of jobs — is a paradigm for the whole West Bank. The population is largely Palestinian interspersed with small

settlements of Israelis and patrolled by Israeli soldiers. “Across from where I live, soldiers are on rooftops and guns are pointed everywhere,” Schroeder said. “Many times at the checkpoints, young men are detained, IDs confiscated, pressed up against the wall, arms spread, legs spread, handled roughly from behind, checked in dishonorable ways to the Muslim culture. These kids have no recourse; they can’t talk back to soldiers or explain that they were just going home. So our intervention a lot of times keeps worse things from happening.” One day, Schroeder said, she watched a soldier take a young man and keep him blindfolded for hours. “I asked ‘Was he a security risk? Why did you blindfold him? You’re not taking him anywhere.’ He wouldn’t answer,” Schroeder said. “Finally we asked ‘Do you have a quota? Do you have to stop a certain number of young men?’ and he nodded.” Schroeder said she often tries to appeal to soldiers — often only teen-

agers themselves — on terms of faith. “I often tell them, ‘This is not what your faith tells you to do to the stranger, or someone who is different from you,’” Schroeder said. “One of the soldiers said to me ‘I think about this every day, I don’t like it.’ Another said, ‘As soon as I get out of this army, I’m going to speak up.’ But I don’t know — they are very young. They are doing what they have to do to get a college education or a job, they are conscripted. So they push the women down on the ground, they take the children and blindfold them, humiliate young men at the gates, they do what their captains tell them.” Of the 250 Israeli settlements in the West Bank, about 30 percent, including five in Hebron, are ideological, Schroeder said. “Ideological settlers think differently than a lot of the settlers,” Schroeder said. “These groups really and sincerely believe that this is really and truly their land alone and the Palestinians need to get out.” n SISTER CONTINUES ON A16

n SISTER CONTINUED FROM A15 Schroeder said she and other team members were once attacked by three settler teenagers as their teacher encouraged them. “I wasn’t hurt badly, but I was traumatized,” Schroeder said. “The teacher stood there shaking her finger at us, while the three kids stood there kicking and hitting and pushing and trying to steal our cameras. They tore off our caps — it was January, so it was cold. There was a soldier standing maybe 10 meters behind me. Finally, he came and shooed them off. I think some of these settlers have been convinced that anyone who works for the sake of the Palestinians is on the wrong side.” Schroeder said the peacemakers are committed to preventing and deescalating violence and work with any group, including Israelis, who shares their goal. “We are working for people — not just one side,” Schroeder said. “This world is not meant to be in conflict all the time. Every human being has dignity and needs to be treated that way.” Schroeder said she cherishes the small successes. “Whenever we see the soldiers hand back the IDs rather quickly when we are present, we feel that is a small success. Whenever we plead for a kid who is taken away to prison for allegedly throwing a stone, if we are heard and maybe the sentence is lessoned, we feel that is a small success,” Schroeder said. “The successes are few, but the Palestinians know that in the international audience they can have

a voice. They keep saying to us, use your pens, your cameras, show what’s really going on. That makes me have comfort and hope that slowly, slowly a collective consciousness is moving toward greater justice.” Schroeder said she joined the sisterhood because she wanted to give her life to the poor. “I didn’t think of myself as an educator at that time, but I’ve discovered that’s what I am,” Schroeder said. “I asked to go to Hebron. I turned 64 and I felt like I still had really good energy and I always wanted to risk more and to speak for people who don’t have a voice.” When she got there, Schroeder saw quickly that the situation is not how many Americans perceive it. “There has been a myth built up that it is so scary to go to Hebron because all these Arabs are terrorists and I want so much to dispel that; I have not found that at all,” Schroeder said. “That’s why I’m so passionate about this. I want so much to show the real face I have discovered in the Palestinian people. “I had been trained to think from my earlier years and from the media that the Islamic faith did not tolerate Christianity. I don’t find any of that true there; my Palestinian neighbors have been nothing but kind and hospitable,” Schroeder said. “In every religion, there are fanatic people, but the search for human dignity, for peace, for rights for everybody — it’s the same. It’s amazing the similarities we have in our scriptures.” Every few months, Schroeder re-

turns to Ohio to give talks, raise funds — and to rest. “We’re not used to all this trauma,” Schroeder said. “We can see somebody beaten up and these are your friends, or taken off to prison and we don’t even know where they’re at. You have to keep working and so you don’t deal with it. So a lot of times I come home and just about cry.” When Schroeder’s three-year commitment is up, she said she might return to the U.S. and continue to work on the problems in Israel from here. “People don’t often hear this whole other part of the conflict,” Schroeder said. “The U.S. generally sees things from the Israeli point of view. And the Holocaust is so deeply ingrained,

it’s hard to think you aren’t speaking anti-Semitically when we are critical of the Israeli.” As for peace in the Middle East, although it doesn’t always look promising from the ground, Schroeder believes there is room for hope. “What’s needed is pressure from the outside and pressure from the inside: From the Israelis, to speak up to their government; from Palestine, nonviolent resistance and working to build up the economy; and then international pressure. And if the U.S. would stop or reduce its monetary assistance until international laws are obeyed, that would have a strong impact.” For more information, visit www. cpt.org or www.tiffinfranciscans.org.

After going through his own weight loss, Nathan Vandenbroek is helping others exercise and lose weight through his personal training business A Dramatic Change. “I got into personal training because of my own weight loss,” Vandenbroek said. The Toledo native weighed 315 pounds at his heaviest and has dropped more than 150 pounds. His personal training specialty, based on his own history, is fat loss, Vandenbroek said. Vandenbroek sees his role as a personal trainer as helping clients to develop exercise habits. “I’m a starting point,” he said. “I teach them enough to go on their own.” On average, 12 in-home one-hour sessions is all Vandenbroek needs to help a client develop a routine, he said. Twelve sessions provide Vandenbroek enough time to implement exercise habits and teach individuals how to branch out and exercise on their own, he said. n CHANGE CONTINUES ON A19

november 21, 2010 n CHANGE CONTINUED FROM A18 “There’s no sense in individuals paying for months and months and years of personal training when it’s a very easy thing someone can do on their own,” Vandenbroek said. Sometimes clients choose to add more sessions or continue sessions for a longer period of time, Vandenbroek said.

Vandenbroek has one client he sees once a month, as more of a routine checkup, he said. Each client, prior to training, gets a free consultation and assessment. Vandenbroek will go through personal goals and his goals for a client and discuss what changes need to be made, he said. Following the

discussion Vandenbroek will lay out, step by step, how he will help a client meet his or her goals. “I come in and I give them the workouts and I show them how to do them. Then, I give them my manual of what to do, whether it’s diet and exercise. This is where we’re at. “This is where you want to be and

these are the steps we need to take to get there,” Vandenbroek said. In addition to exercise instruction, Vandenbroek provides nutritional guidance and refers clients to dietitians when need be. Vandenbroek also keeps a client on target and motivated to reach his or her goal. “There is no quick fix to anything, no matter what some gimmick says,” Vandenbroek said. “It takes time and energy. You must stay driven to yourself, motivated and focused.” In addition to one-on-one training, A Dramatic Change can also set up and assist with corporate wellness programs. “An insurance broker will go in and say ‘Here’s A to Z, you do this and call me when you’re done.’ … I go in and find out what insurance provider they have and what list of things they need to accomplish,” Vandenbroek said. “Then, I’ll run the weekly weighins, exercise classes and take care of

There are many choices for end-of-life caregiving

T

here are many decisions to be made when imminent death is approaching for a loved one. Questions regarding what type of care, medical assistance and even physical location for their last days confront us. If care at home has been given, should loved ones be moved to a facility or remain at home? If in a care facility, should they be moved home for their last days? Will 24hour care become necesDebra sary and more medical assistance be required? If you are asking these questions, a hospice service might be a good solution. Hospice can be provided to a person who has a life-limiting illness wherever that person lives. A nursing facility or long-term care facility can receive visits from hospice personnel in addition to the other care and services provided by the facility. Hospice care is a special way of caring for a patient who is in the last stages of life. Hospice provides a team of professionals who aid the patient and family caregivers. This could include nurses, social workers, physicians, clergy and aides who work together to plan and coordinate care, 24 hours a day or as needed. The Hospice Foundation of America outlines the following services of hospice: n Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. n Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death. Hospice staff and volunteers offer a specialized knowledge of medical care, including pain management. n The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of a patient’s last days by offering comfort and dignity. n Hospice care is provided by a team-oriented group of specially trained professionals, volunteers and family members. n Hospice addresses all symptoms of a disease with a special emphasis on controlling a patient’s pain and discomfort. n Hospice deals with the emotional, social and spiritual impact of the disease on the patient and the patient’s family and friends. n Hospice offers a variety of bereavement and counseling services to families before and after a patient’s death.

To be eligible for hospice a physician must certify the patient to be terminally ill with a life expectancy of six months or less and treatment for a cure is no longer provided. The focus for the patient has changed to supportive care and quality of remaining life. Hospice is paid for by private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid Hospice Benefit or personal funds. ROIDL Here are the conditions that apply for Medicare Hospice Benefits: n You are eligible for Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) n Your doctor and the hospice medical director certify that you’re terminally ill and have six months or less to live if your illness runs its normal course. n You sign a statement choosing hospice care instead of other Medicare-covered benefits to treat your terminal illness. n You get care from a Medicareapproved hospice program n You understand that Medicare will still pay for covered benefits for any health problems that aren’t related to your terminal illness. Special benefit periods apply to Medicare hospice care and some services do not apply. Be sure to understand the rules and requirements of Medicare payment before you commit. Hospice is available to anyone, regardless of age or illness. If Medicare or private insurance is not available, hospice services may be available for low-income individuals through grants or charitable donations. Many hospices are nonprofit and will provide services to anyone in need. “Many families or their loved ones’ doctors often wait too long to order hospice. Hospice is a very valuable service and should be ordered at an earlier stage of illness. Many do not consider hospice for Alzheimer’s, degenerative old age or other debilitating illnesses where a person is going downhill fast. They should. “It is unfortunate that many people who died in a hospital emergency room or who received heroic treatments to prolong life in a hospital may have had the alternative of dying at home in familiar surroundings, with family or other loved ones at their side.

“When someone is in crisis or appears to be going downhill fast but there really is no hope for recovery, family often call 911 and start a process which can result in great stress and great emotional discomfort. The loved one who is dying ends up in a hospital and may die there or be transferred to a nursing home where death eventually occurs. “When there is no longer hope for prolonging life, especially when this decision is made months in advance,

hospice is usually a better alternative to other medical intervention.” The days leading up to the moment of death for a loved one can be rich with meaning and expressions of love. Family and caregivers should allow others to help with the care and daily responsibilities. They need to free themselves from the details of caregiving and instead need to use hospice to allow more time to reminisce, give thanks for a life shared and say goodbye.

CHILD CARE

Author’s pregnancy quips turn into new book By Jand Lethlean Associated Press

FREEPORT, Ill. (AP) — Pregnancy is no laughing matter, or is it? Haley Greene, formerly of Freeport, has taken a serious step to communicating with the world just what her thoughts were about carrying her daughter, Tennyson. Greene said her pregnancy seemed like an eternity. Along the way, she would share her insights with her mother, Cris, and

when her mother concurred what she was feeling was real, Greene would reply, “Are you kidding me?’’ The little statements and thoughts jotted down in her journal are now compiled in a humorous look at what nine months of pregnancy can be like according to Greene. “I collected my thoughts at the end of my pregnancy,’’ Greene said. “My first six months were over in the blink of an eye, then the seventh month came and wham, everything

went downhill, quickly. It seemed like everything that could go wrong did.’’ Greene is a 1996 graduate of Freeport High School. She moved to Arizona and eventually graduated from the University of Arizona. From there, she opened up a high end clothing store in Tucson. There she met a wonderful man, who would become her husband, Stephen Ochoa, who was also a businessman. The young couple decided to try for a baby right away, thinking things

don’t talk about being pregnant. Greene shares it all. One example: “Why isn’t my baby 60 pounds? That’s how much weight I gained!’’ Greene began collecting all the entries from her journals and decided to do her own book version. With the help of her mother and her husband, she started working with a book editor. Greene said she had read all the clinical books on pregnancy, which she said could be kind of scary. Greene puts a humorous spin on things with this book. “My book is just short quips of real things about the pregnancy,’’ Greene said. “Clinical books are scary, but useful, but also scary, so I wanted to make mine funny and not scary.’’

would take a while. Two months later, Greene was pregnant. “I sailed through the first couple of months with no problem, everything was fantastic,’’ Greene said. “I even secretly started making fun of my friends who had morning sickness. “Then it all changed,’’ she added. Greene began having contractions. Her doctor put her on bed rest. At first Greene thought it meant she just had to slow down, then she ended up in the hospital. The last three months of her pregnancy was spent in bed. The only time she could get up was to use the bathroom. Her thoughts began to get the best of her, so she got a journal. “I had journals in every room,’’ she said. “I just jotted down my thoughts whenever they came to me.’’ Her daughter Tennyson was born Dec. 4, 2007. Greene, who has a keen sense of humor about both her pregnancy and raising a child, said this: “The first year of Tennyson’s life, I said, now that you have it, what do you do with it?’’ Greene said she cannot imagine life without her daughter, but pregnancy again? She is done with the process. She shares her quips, statements and questions in her new book called “Are You KIDding Me?’’ This is a humorous take on nine months of pregnancy.

FLU SEASON

Fresh juice can be a natural solution to fighting flu

(ARA) — Flu season is here and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and health care providers everywhere are urging everyone to take better care to weather the cold and flu storm. From getting flu shots and getting more exercise and sleep, to regularly washing hands and limiting stress, you can do a lot to battle cold and flu bugs to stay healthy — but the easiest way to safeguard your health is to increase your fruit and vegetable intake. It sounds like basic advice, but according to the CDC, average Americans are not getting an adequate amount of the vital nutrients found in fruits and vegetables in their diet, putting a large portion of the population at risk for getting the flu, or worse yet heart disease and cancer. Most people may not know how to easily incorporate more fruit and vegetables into already pressedfor-time schedules. A simple solution for increasing your intake is by juicing ­— drinking, instead of eating — your daily requirements. When juicing, there is no need to sacrifice health for convenience. Fresh, frozen or canned, get the most out of your fruits and vegetables with juicers. Health experts agree that drinking fresh juice is an excellent way to increase your vitamin and mineral intake, because juicing is known to release the nutrients from fruit and vegetables in a highly absorbable form, allowing your body to get the maximum benefits out of the each glass. For example, to meet the daily requirements for flu-fighting vitamins and antioxidants, the CDC recommends two or more cups of fruit and 2½ or more cups of vegetables each day, based on a 2,000calorie diet. For fruit, that is one small apple and eight large strawberries, and for vegetables, that is approximately 24 baby carrots or 25 florets of broccoli. In comparison, just three-fourths cup of freshly extracted juice equals one daily serving of fruits or vegetables. Juicing in the winter months can help you get a boost of vitamin C, which, of all the antioxidants, has the most important role in helping the immune system tackle any free radicals in the body. While it is widely known that

100 percent orange juice provides more than a day’s recommended daily value of vitamin C, many don’t know that strawberries, kiwi, grapefruit, pineapple, sweet potatoes, cabbage, bell peppers, tomatoes, hot peppers and broccoli also reign supreme in vitamin C. Juicers can easily tackle the toughest produce like carrots or the rind of a pineapple without a lot of prep time, bringing juice bar versatility right to the kitchen countertop. To get started in thinking about the many tasty fruit and vegetable combinations, here’s a vitamin Cpacked recipe that will surely help ward off cold and flu bugs and kick-start the habit of juicing for better health any time of year.

CSX shows off intermodal terminal in North Baltimore By Duane Ramsey

TOLEDO FREE PRESS SENIOR BUSINESS WRITER dramsey@toledofreepress.com

CSX Corporation showed off the Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal in North Baltimore to local media with a tour of the nearly completed facilities Nov. 12. Some construction continues on the $175 million project on 500

acres along state Route 18 just west of North Baltimore. The terminal is scheduled to open for business by the end of the first quarter in 2011, according to Peter Craig, terminal superintendent for CSX. “It’s the greatest intermodal project going in North America,” Craig said. It is part of the $842 million National Gateway project undertaken by CSX in several states that

also includes intermodal terminals in Chambersburg, Pa., and Pittsburgh. An existing terminal in Columbus will be expanded as part of the project. The intermodal rail project will offer a more efficient link for East Coast ports to growing markets in the Midwest. The Northwest Ohio terminal is designed to improve the flow of freight, create hundreds of

jobs and support distribution facilities in the region, according to CSX. The intermodal terminal will handle containers coming from ports on the East Coast, such as Baltimore, that are shipped west across Pennsylvania and Ohio on CSX trains. Those trains could be unloaded at this terminal where containers would be loaded onto other trains

heading west or south or trucks delivering containers of cargo to local destinations. The terminal will provide a direct rail link to Chicago or bypass Chicago for direct shipment to the West Coast. The bypass will allow containers to get through Chicago faster and reduce transit time to the West Coast, Craig said. n CSX CONTINUES ON A25

November 21, 2010 n CSX CONTINUED FROM A24 “Customers will determine the best way to use this facility,” said Craig, who hosted potential customers for the facility at the terminal. He said they were very impressed with the facility and its potential for business. Craig said that transshipping business would be the core of the terminal where they will move containers from train to train, train to truck and truck to train. The typical service area for such a facility is a 75-to-100-mile radius but that could be expanded based on demand, he said. CSX reports that the terminal will handle 25 trains per day and move more than 630,000 containers and trailers per year. Craig expects the facility to handle 75 to 80 trucks daily,

calling it a “modest forecast.” “The volume will be determined by customers using the facility,” he said. Double-stacked containers on trains could reduce the number of trucks on the highways as one train can carry the load of more than 280 trucks. Craig said the containers, weighing up to 44,000 pounds, would contain mostly consumer and household goods, food and paper products and would be transported by trains and trucks. During the first year of operation, CSX expects more than 20,000 lifts to serve local markets including Toledo, Findlay, Napoleon, Fostoria and Bowling Green. The five wide-span cranes will service eight processing tracks from 500 to 3,000 feet long, two straddle lanes, one truck lane and five con-

tainer stacks of four high. The cranes will move from 15 to 30 containers per hour, Craig said. The cranes are operated by one operator located in a small booth 100 feet above the ground. Crane operators will have a comfort station located outside the control booth for breaks, he said. CSX will hire and train about 48 crane opCRAIG erators to work at the facility. The operators will be trained in a $700,000 simulator located in a 40-foot container on the site. Jamie Watkins, operations man-

Visit www.toledofreepress.com ager for the terminal, is training on the simulator and actual cranes. She will help teach the incoming crane operators how to load and unload the containers from the booth using two joystick controls. CSX has hired one manager locally and is relocating 12 additional people. It has made job offers to 80 prospective employees from about 2,700 candidates who applied for positions, Craig said. The first round of employees will begin work in December. As many as 200 workers would be employed at the terminal by CSX and vendors working there when it opens, Craig said. The $842 million National Gateway is a public-private partnership, with CSX providing $400 million

of the development with $60 million for clearance projects. The balance includes $30 million in federal funds, $20 million from State of Ohio and $10 million from the Ohio Department of Development. Craig said that 80 percent of the National Gateway project’s costs are already committed. The National Gateway would provide nearly $1.7 billion in public benefits in Ohio by reducing carbon dioxide emissions by almost 2 million tons, saving $350 million in logistics costs for the state, reducing the state’s highway congestion and lowering highway maintenance costs, enhancing rail transportation infrastructure and expanding potential rail market access, according to CSX.

The St. Ursula Arrows volleyball team won its second state championship title Nov. 13. “Obviously winning a state championship is a very difficult feat and I was very proud,” said head coach John Buck. “They set this goal and they worked hard. The coaching staff and I really pushed these girls hard and they responded positively all year long and did everything we asked them to do. I couldn’t be prouder and I was excited for them.” The team beat the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks for the Division I state title, 15-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-18, at Wright State University. Four members of the Arrows had 10 or more kills, including 15 by junior Erin Williams, 12 by senior Maggie Burnham and 10 by both sophomore Maddie Burnham and junior Cassidy Croci. “[Winning the championship] was

awesome. It was a great way to leave. I’m going to miss the bond that our team had. It was a great way to end it all,” said senior setter Veronica Zimmerman, who had 37 assists and six aces in the final. On Nov. 16, seniors Zimmerman and Maggie Burnham signed intent papers to play in college. Burnham signed with Northwestern University, and Zimmerman with the University of Memphis. Both girls said they look forward to playing in college. “I love the school, the girls and the coaches. It’s going to be a lot of fun next year,” Burnham said. The Arrows advanced to the state championship after winning against Brecksville-Broadview Heights on Nov. 12 in the semifinal. The team finished its season 28-1. St. Ursula Academy also won a state volleyball title in 2004.

Are You a Business Storing Chemicals? Did You Know...? Your Lead Acid Batteries May be Reportable

If your facility has lead acid batteries onsite (such as forklift batteries, or a battery bank) you must determine if the quantity of hazardous materials in those batteries is reportable. For an Extremely Hazardous Substance (EHS) the amount that triggers reporting is 500 pounds or the threshold planning quantity (TPQ) for the chemical, whichever is lower. For a non-EHS chemical the Tier 2 reporting threshold is 10,000 pounds. Sulfuric Acid is an EHS chemical that has a TPQ of 1000 pounds. In making the determination of whether the sulfuric acid content of your batteries is reportable on a Tier 2, the more stringent 500 pound threshold must be used. It is important to note that only the weight of the sulfuric acid needs to be considered when making this determination, not the weight of the entire battery. The amount of sulfuric acid in the batteries must be added together with any other sulfuric acid onsite to make the final determination. If you have questions about reporting the lead acid batteries at your facility contact the LEPC at 419-213-6527.

SARA Title III requires facilities that use, process, manufacture or store hazardous materials or extremely hazardous substances to file an annual Tier 2 report documenting the presence of such materials to the Local Fire Department, to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). The requirements apply to all facilities within the county which store one or more hazardous materials in excess of a specific threshold quantity. Electronic reporting is the most efficient way to submit Tier 2 reports and is preferred by the Lucas County LEPC and SERC. You can find information and electronic reporting software at:

http://www.epa.ohio.gov/dapc/serc/submit.aspx

Submission of documentation in compliance with Tier 2 requirements includes the Facility Identification Form, Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form, site maps and MSDS sheets as described in the Facility Reporting Compliance Manual for each reporting year. Tier 2 reports must be electronically submitted or postmarked on or before March 1 of each year.

If you are unsure whether these reporting requirements apply to your business please contact: Lucas County LEPC at 419-213-6527, or Ohio SERC at 1-888-644-2260

player in Northwest Ohio for the 2010 season. There was a lot of talent that was up for this award, and you could make a case for each of the nominees to win this Schmidy. One player stood out to the voters amongst all others this season though, and that player was Jody Webb, RB, from Whitmer. Webb was electric on the football field this season rushing for 1,139 yards and 19 TD. What is more impressive about Webb’s season though were his statistical averages. He averaged almost ten yards per carry this season (9.8 ypc) and he scored a touchdown once out of every seven times he touched the football. Webb also was the CL’s fifth best receiver, gaining 378 yards on 16 catches. The runner up for this award was Central Catholic’s Calebb Goings, who was the CL’s leading rusher this season. That is all for the 2010 Schmidy Awards. Congratulations to all of

INDUSTRY

By Dee-Ann Durbin AP Auto Writer

DETROIT (AP) — When engineers were getting Ford’s Transit Connect ready to go on sale in the United States last year, some of them noticed an oily, fishy smell in the van. Ford staff in Turkey, where the Transit Connect is made, were stumped. They hadn’t noticed the smell. But a team of U.S. engineers could smell it, and they went to work stripping down the van’s interior until they found the culprit: a sealant used in the doors. Ford has now switched to a new sealant that won’t offend American noses. In the highly competitive auto industry, no detail can be overlooked. That includes odors. Ford, Toyota, General Motors and others have trained teams of sniffers that evaluate smells, and reject or reformulate any unpleasant materials. It’s a daunting task: Car interiors are made of dozens of different odorous materials — plastics, foams, rubbers, carpet, fabric, leather. “The goal is for you to not smell anything, because different people are going to like different things,’’ said Sandra Edwards, a Ford laboratory engineer who leads a smell-test team at the automaker. “If there’s no scent whatsoever, everyone’s going to be happy.’’ Edwards knows this firsthand. While many people like “new car smell’’ and even try to replicate it with air fresheners, she dislikes it and drives with her windows rolled down until it dissipates. Smell tests have taken on added importance with the globalization of the car market: Different cultures have

different sensitivities. Ford’s smell panel has international participants to ensure it gets a variety of opinions. “America has such a sanitized atmosphere to it, it doesn’t take much for us to pick up on those odors,’’ Edwards said. Andrea Sterling, an engineer and smell panel leader for Toyota in the United States, said Americans are more sensitive to “fishy’’ smells than Japanese, so Japanese engineers have been trained to meet American standards for “fishiness.’’ On the other hand, Japanese testers found the smell from some natural fibers much more offensive than Americans did. There’s no smell that Edwards can think of that everyone likes. U.S. and European drivers think leather smells luxurious, for example, but Indian drivers don’t like it. Smell tests are run whenever engineers need to make sure a certain part can be used. At Ford, five testers are picked from a pool in Edwards’ department, and they smell samples that have been placed in Mason jars with water or heat, which intensify smells. Testers assign numbers to the smells, from one (no smell) to six (strong and disturbing). Negative tests can force engineers to scrap a part and start over. When Toyota was designing the new Sienna minivan, engineers planned to use a certain foam block as a dampening cushion in the cup holder. But the foam didn’t pass the smell test, so materials engineers worked with design engineers and the supplier to find an alternative. Sometimes, automakers or suppliers will try to reformulate the

part to change the odor. In one recent instance, Ford’s team determined that some rubber floor mats smelled unpleasant. The supplier tried adding cinnamon oil to mask the scent. Unfortunately, that was rejected, too. “It smelled like cinnamon and rubber. It was pretty comical,’’ Edwards said. Sterling said many people believe that automakers add something to the car to create “new car smell.’’ But it just comes from chemicals in the materials. Plasticizers, for example, are chemicals added to plastic to make it more durable and easier to mold into the dashboard and other shapes. Eventually, the chemicals evaporate and the smell goes away.

“Even the smell of roses comes from the chemicals that the plant releases into the air,’’ Sterling said. “Just like roses, plastics, adhesives and other materials have some chemicals in them that are released into the air and are recognized by our noses.’’ The Ecology Center, an environmental group in Ann Arbor, has warned that exposure to the many chemicals in car interiors — through touching the seats or steering wheel, for example — may cause health problems. In tests, the center has found bromine, a flame retardant that it says has been linked to thyroid problems and decreased fertility; phlalates, which also have been linked to re-

to

productive problems; and lead. Toyota has some concern that the chemicals in cars may cause nose and throat irritation, Sterling said. Currently, there are no U.S. regulations on the chemicals that can be in a car’s interior air, but the Japanese Automotive Manufacturers Association has set some voluntary guidelines that Toyota follows. Sterling said those guidelines caused the company to switch to some lower-emission products in some cases, such as a resin with 80 percent lower formaldehyde emissions. Ford spokeswoman Kristen Kinley said Ford tests all its materials rigorously and hasn’t found any harmful chemicals.

China played role in General Motors IPO By Sharon Silke Carty AP Auto Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Among the banks helping General Motors with its initial public stock offering (IPO) Nov. 18 were two identified by initials only: ICBC and CICC. Americans uncomfortable with U.S. government ownership of General Motors may want to hear more: One of those banks is the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, one of China’s four big central government banks. The other, China International Capital Corp., is a joint venture run primarily by Central Huijin Investment Ltd., an arm of the state, and Morgan Stanley. This is the first time Chinese government banks have participated in a major U.S.-issued IPO, according to IPO tracking firm Dealogic. The banks are listed as co-managers in the offering, meaning they will sell a portion of the new shares. Chinese automaker SAIC, GM’s partner in China, bought nearly a 1 percent stake, worth about $500 million, in GM’s IPO, the Wall Street Journal reported. SAIC is owned by

the Shanghai government. Other foreign investors expressed interest include several sovereign wealth funds located in the Middle East and Asia. The Wall Street Journal says those funds, which manage the finances of royal families and some nations, could invest $1 billion in GM’s IPO. There could be political backlash for President Barack Obama, who was recently in Asia addressing economic issues, like currency exchange differences between the U.S. and China. Obama has argued that China artificially deflates its currency, the yuan, in an attempt to make its exports cheaper. Many Americans were unhappy when the U.S. bailed out GM, calling the company “Government Motors.’’ GM’s Nov. 18 stock offering reduced the U.S. Treasury’s stake in the company from 61 percent to 43 percent, and will help pay back the more than $50 billion that taxpayers invested in GM to keep it from collapsing. More stock offerings will happen in the next year or so, letting the government fully divest from the automaker. “It’s a very political topic, but what

The dramatic declines in fatalities in other nations have been achieved in part through the kinds of programs that have sometimes generated opposition in the U.S: speed cameras and speed measuring devices, sobriety checkpoints and mandatory motorcycle helmets, for example. If such programs were widely adopted in the U.S., it’s probable that thousands of lives could be saved each year, the report said. Researchers estimated that nationwide, sustained and frequent use of checkpoints to detect drunk drivers could save 1,500 to 3,000 lives annually. Systematic speed control programs applied nationwide could save another 1,000 to 2,000 lives, the report said. If every state required all motorcyclists to wear helmets, about 450 deaths a year could be avoided, the report said. Increasing the rate of seat belt use just 5 percent — from the present 85 percent to 90 percent — would save about 1,200 lives. “Where is the public outcry against these preventable deaths?’’ said National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman. “Americans should strive for zero fatalities on the road. We should be leading, rather than following the international community when it comes to roadway design and safety measures,’’ Hersman said. “But it is a sad fact that the U.S. is in their rear view mirror and falling further behind the rest of the world when it comes to highway safety.’’ Clinton Oster, an environment and public policy professor at the University of Indiana-Bloomington and chairman of the committee that wrote the report, said there was no “silver bullet’’ program that stood out.

fatalities fell 9.7 percent in 2009 to 33,808, the lowest number since 1950. In 2008, an estimated 37,423 people died on the highways, a decline of 9.3 percent from the previous year. But dramatic declines in traffic fatalities in the U.S. during the last several years are likely due to a sour economy in which people drive less, rather than lasting changes in behavior, the report suggests. As the economy improves, researchers said, fatalities are likely to rebound. “The experience of the past three years is not grounds for concluding that sustainable progress has been made on traffic safety,’’ the report said. In the 1970s, the U.S. fatality rate was the lowest in the world. But because safety efforts have improved more slowly in the United States than elsewhere, most high-income countries have now matched or gone below the U.S. rate, said the report by the Transportation Research Board. Countries with comparable living standards where fatality rates per mile of travel were substantially higher than in the United States 15 years ago are now below the U.S. rate, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France and the United Kingdom. “The United States can no longer claim to rank highly in road safety by world standards,’’ the report said. From 1995 to 2009, fatalities dropped 52 percent in France, 38 percent in the United Kingdom, 25 percent in Australia and 50 percent in 15 high-income countries for which long-term fatality and traffic data are available, the report said. But they dropped only 19 percent in the U.S.

The elephant in the room

nyone within earshot of a local suburban teacher has likely heard about The Blade’s Nov. 14 article, “Teacher salaries defy trends of hard times.” The article pinpoints some of the highest-paid educators in Rossford, Springfield, Sylvania and Oregon while quickly underscoring current budget shortfalls being faced in most districts. Although an accompanying table states that the starting salaries in each of the four districts hovers around $35,000, the body of the article focuses on those educators earning $80,000 and above. The lack of a more comprehensive overview of what it takes on a daily, yearly and career-spanning basis to forge a path from $35,000 to $95,000 was a disappointment to many local teachers. Although the article points out that the higherpaid educators are earning more “because they have multiple degrees and decades of experience,” teachers rightfully fear that highlighting only the top-tier earners

will paint an uneven picture of the somehow had access to such numbers all along. However, The Blade true scope of teaching salaries. Even lending a defending putting a leash on the elephant out back and luring it invoice to the arside to the middle of ticle by adding that our living room makes “Union leadership it hard to ignore says teachers deserve and leaves everyone their pay because feeling a bit uncomthey are educated fortable.

Being public infor- to push its way to the forefront of mation, I suppose we, the public, America’s collective mind, and my

own increased personal interest in education as my children begin their academic journeys, I had actually already navigated the 2010 Community Update from Sylvania Schools that arrived in my mail this fall. I was no doubt surprised to learn that our district’s average teacher salary is $61,980.90, approximately the same amount as the median household income in Sylvania, considered an affluent community, and certainly much higher than state and national income averages. I was also taken aback to read that my school system actually spends more money on education per pupil (e.g., my son) than our family spends on housing, food, clothing, transportation, medical and dental for any one member in the course of a year. It is difficult to reconcile wellpaid teachers and high per-student expenses against the backdrop of the failing American education system. Yet, almost all of the school systems mentioned in The Blade

article are not failing systems. In fact, of the 10 Ohio school districts mentioned, five are rated “Excellent” by the Ohio Department of Education and three are rated “Excellent with Distinction.” While state designations are not necessarily indicative of an ability to academically compete on a global scale, they certainly indicate diligent and highly-effective teachers and administrators deserving of excellent pay, benefits and respect. The main reason my family made the move to suburban life was the accomplishment and professionalism of our school system. The knowledge that our district offers teachers an opportunity for upward mobility and above-average income is not a negative, but rather an assurance that our district will be able to attract and retain outstanding teachers and continue to provide the level of educational success we signed up for. n FAMILY CONTINUES ON A33

Singer-songwriter White to loosen up in Ann Arbor By Vicki L. Kroll Toledo Free Press Staff Writer vkroll@toledofreepress.com

Being perfect isn’t for Matt White. In fact, his “Best Days” is behind him. The title track from “Best Days,” his 2007 full-length debut, showcased his upbeat, fun style — and landed him on the charts and VH1. His music was featured in movies, including “Hotel for Dogs,” “Shrek the Third” and “What Happens in Vegas,” and on TV, including “One Tree Hill” and

“Brothers and Sisters.” While Rolling Stone tabbed White an artist to watch, he wasn’t that happy. “My first record, I took it too seriously; touring with ‘Best Days,’ it ruined it for me. It was all perfection and no vibe,” the singersongwriter said. WHITE “I was trying to

be perfect, and I was the total opposite; it was terrible.” For “The Good Crazy,” released in September, the New Yorker embraced imperfection — and had a great time. “It was intense because everything was recorded live,” White said of sessions in an old church in Woodstock, N.Y. And he recorded the disc on unforgiving analog tape. “I used analog because I just love the sound so much more,” White said during a call from a tour stop in Auburn, Ala. “This sound is much

warmer than the first record.” The follow-up keeps that high energy and sense of humor. “Songs like ‘Therapy’ and ‘Honeymoon Phase’ I think that they’re thematically funny,” the pianist and guitarist said. “The lyrics and the bounciness of the song ‘Therapy’ is hysterical because when you are living in New York and when you are single, there’s always those people around who are constantly trying to set you up, and I think a lot of people can identify with that.”

BEER OF THE MONTH

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.

Alarm clock. You focus on switching, swapping and rearranging things to your satisfaction. By Thursday, you’re rethinking your approach to long-term projects. You’re inspired to dig deep over the weekend to uncover the root causes and historic patterns.

Milk bath. The full moon swamps you with personal and community emotions, from mild to extreme. You can be highly effective Wednesday if you stick to your plans. Young people dash from place to place after Thursday, whereas you just want to relax on the couch.

Personal rituals. The next month of your life is going to be extremely intense. Various demands can take a toll on your emotional equilibrium; doubts about the future add uncertainty. Keep pushing forward, and avoid getting stuck in too much introspection.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Transforming thoughts. The phone doesn’t stop ringing.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Weather reports can affect travel plans as you watch the sky and road. You may have to do double-duty Thursday. You’re able to be more relaxed and enjoy friends and entertaining events after Friday.

Step it up. Your personal foundations have been rebuilt and streamlined this year, but others are still figuring out their lives. Opinions aired Thursday demonstrate how diverse viewpoints lead to different approaches and solutions to the future. Not all risks are bad.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Stretch and shrink. The full moon can provoke mood swings and wobbling priorities. Touchy past issues resurface Tuesday. Keep your mind on the road through holiday weekend travels. Family legacies and generational shifts are subjects of weekend discussions.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Relay race. People want to pin you down, but you’re fuzzy on some obligations and unwilling to make guarantees. After Wednesday you’ll get the facts needed to firm up plans. Steer clear of sensitive topics Thursday. Special treats arrive Saturday.

Full charge. Although this week swirls with people and hospitality preparations, there will be suspended moments when you notice just how profoundly your life has changed this year. Double-check plans with others for gatherings as some adjustments may be needed.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Frenzied efforts. Focus centers on family members all week. Life demands may reduce holiday time. The pace swings from a crawl to light-speed Thursday. People disclose lifechanging possibilities over the weekend, but no worries - nothing will happen soon.

Intriguing affair. One-on-one contacts with others can send you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. A name from the past comes up midweek, haunting you with “might-have-beens.” Weekend plans won’t come out perfectly. Enjoy whatever happens with whoever shows up.

High rise. This high-velocity week is dotted with many calls and little trips around town. Drive with extra caution. Someone else may have car problems. Confusing situations arise Thursday; smooth over rough patches. Intense emotions surface on Saturday.

Grace period. You may have mixed feelings about upcoming holiday gatherings as the week starts. It may be impossible to continue some traditions, but people are still the same. You’re in better harmony with others Friday; share favorite hobbies and books.
