A Toledo tradition since 2005



Rep. Bob Latta

I was in second grade in 1963 at Kenwood Elementary in Bowling Green. They sent us home from school after word came that the president had been assassinated. I still remember seeing several teachers out by the buses, crying. I distinctly remember where I was on LATTA the sidewalk when I heard what had happened. Dad was in Congress at the time, so we drove to Washington, with my dad, mom, sister and I. I still remember standing on the bridge that connects Washington with Arlington National Cemetery when they drove past with Kennedy’s body. Again, it’s one of those things that really shook the nation, to have a president assassinated, and unfortunately we’ve had four. It’s one of those things, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, it was a very sorrowful thing. O

Sen. Sherrod Brown

Like so many of my generation, I remember where I was when I first learned that President Kennedy had been shot in Dallas. I was in sixth grade at Brinkerhoff School in Mansfield when Principal Sheets came over the PA system to let us know that the BROWN president had been shot. One hour later, he informed us — the older students — in person that President Kennedy was dead. I remember the confusion and sadness that so many of us felt. But it reaffirmed that the chance to serve can be fleeting, and that we all can and should work toward social and economic justice each and every day. O

Toledo Mayor-elect D. Michael Collins

The events of Nov. 22, 1963, are indelible in my memory. I was at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and we were in a field exercise using .50-caliber machine guns in a mock combat engagement. Early into the afternoon, while training, a convoy of troop haulers came upon our training site with several members of the command staff. They met briefly with our training staff and platoon leaders and then we were ordered to secure our weapons and imCOLLINS mediately board the transport trucks as our training day had been suspended. We returned to our barracks and were told that we were not to communicate with anyone other than Marine personnel and that earlier that day, President John F. Kennedy had been killed by an assassin. My first thought was “how could this have possibly happened and who could have been responsible?” As I recall back on that date, the Cold War was an ever-threatening reality and the relationship with Cuba, as a result of the missile crisis, created a similar set of risks. My entire platoon, as well as all of the members of our company, were hit with a feeling of insecurity yet felt an overwhelming sense of duty to our country. The major concern at that time, because of where we were located, was that we would be moved to Little Creek, Va., and from there, to engage in an amphibious landing in Havana. While those plans were made known, they were never executed. Days later, while watching television, I became an eyewitness, as a result of the electronic media, to a homicide. Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in custody for the assassination of Kennedy

was killed before the eyes of the nation by Jack Ruby. To this day I can close my eyes and revisit those circumstances, which reverberated throughout the world. May this great American rest in peace. O

Toledo City Councilman George Sarantou I was a sixth-grade student at McKinley Elementary School when the principal announced that President Kennedy had been shot and killed in Dallas. Shortly after that, we were dismissed from school. I came home and my mom also told me about SARANTOU the assassination and everyone was simply in shock. During the next four days, I witnessed how sad my parents and other family members were and how outraged they were that this happened. I will never forget seeing my father cry for the first time as a child, and I knew that this was absolutely devastating to my parents. I also detected a huge amount of skepticism as to why this happened and as a result of this tragedy I will never forget Nov. 22, 1963, which certainly changed my life and the life of our nation. Kennedy’s inspiration was part of the reason I sought public office later in life because I felt that one person can make a difference. O

Toledo City Councilman Rob Ludeman I was in my fifth-grade classroom at Heatherdowns Elementary School in South Toledo that fateful afternoon. Our teacher, Miss Hirsch, was called out of the classroom by our principal, Miss Beach. That was highly unusual and it appeared that all the teachers were called, too.  When Miss Hirsch Thomas F.

came back in to the classroom a short time later she was crying. She closed the door and said, “President Kennedy has been shot in Dallas and has died.”  For 10-year-olds there was an over whelming sense of unbelief.  Who would LUDEMAN want to hurt our President?  Some cried, all sat not knowing what to say other than, “Who did it” and “How

did it happen?” There were no real answers just a great sadness that filled the room that day. I remember watching Lyndon Johnson being sworn in as the new president.  In the following days all families were glued to their televisions trying to find answers and eventually watching the president’s funeral procession. It was one of the saddest times in most of our lives.  I often wonder what might have been accomplished by Kennedy had this event not occurred. The years following were tumultuous both in the U.S. and Southeast Asia, but our country was strong and survived. O

A Toledo tradition since 2005

November 24, 2013


By Sarah Ottney


“Puppy mills” are at the center of a debate over legislation Toledo City Council is weighing that would strictly regulate the sale of dogs and cats in Toledo. The controversial ordinance, cosponsored by Council president Paula Hicks-Hudson and Councilman Rob Ludeman, would prohibit the sale of puppies and kittens in pet shops, retail businesses and commercial establishments unless the animals are obtained from a legitimate animal shelter, animal control agency, humane society or nonprofit rescue organization and the animals are spayed or neutered. The intent is to prevent the sale of animals from substandard breeding facilities commonly referred to as “puppy mills” or “kitten factories.” But opponents of the legislation argue the proposed law unfairly targets business — and one business in particular. John and Debbie Stottele, owners of The Family Puppy, a pet shop that opened at Westfield Franklin Park on Oct. 18, said they would close the store if Council passes the ordinance. The Toledo shop employs seven people, including two full-time employees. The Michigan-based business also has five locations in southeast Michigan. It buys puppies from about 20 Amish breeders in northern Indiana. Puppies are typically sold at between 8-12 weeks of age. John said he stands with Council members and activists who want to eradicate puppy mills, although he prefers the term “substandard breeders.” “We need to clamp down on bad breeders — and we’re in that fight,” John told Council members on Nov. 19 during a committee meeting at which the group listened for nearly two hours to supporters and skeptics of the proposed legislations. “The state wants to stop bad breeders, the federal government wants to stop bad breeders, we want to stop bad breeders. But what you’re proposing will not do that.” “We do not feel that our puppies are the problem,” Debbie added. John said only about 4 percent of dogs in the U.S. are purchased through pet stores. The rest come from private sales, Internet sales and shelters, all of which are largely unregulated. “If pet stores only sell 4 percent, where do the other 96 percent come from and is the pet store really the

problem?” John asked. “We all want to get rid of bad breeders, but this is going about it wrong. What we need to do is what the state is trying to do — regulate large-scale breeders and give them restrictions and guidelines. Ohio is writing that as we speak. The federal government has had it since 1966. Look at what you’re doing. Don’t trade a highly regulated industry for a nonregulated industry.”

Animal activists

Discourse was passionate but civil at the Nov. 19 meeting. About 25 supporters of the legislation attended, wearing stickers that read “Boycott The Family Puppy.” Susan Robinson of Woodville, who has participated in regular protests held outside the mall, said she owns two dogs rescued from Amish puppy mills. “The places they came from are horrific and they will have lifelong consequences because of that,” Robinson said. “I know that some puppy mills are better than others, but that is like saying some forms of cancer are better than others. We would like them all to go away.” Mary Stulpin of Curtice said she has

five dogs rescued from puppy mills. “They’re the lucky ones,” Stulpin said. “Many of these animals never get this opportunity. I ask you to think about the horrible conditions of the dogs who are left behind.” Jaleen Tocco of the Ohio Coalition for Dogs said puppy mills exist because they are lucrative. “The only way to stop puppy mills is to cut off the demand in the market,” Tocco said. Pam Sordyl of Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan and Jean Keating of the Ohio Coalition of Dog Advocates, who are spearheading the protest, said The Family Puppy’s three largest suppliers are puppy mills. “[Through USDA records], we basically proved that yes, he does buy from those breeders and yes those breeders are all USDA inspected and yes those breeders all have violations almost every single year,” Keating said. The Stotteles insist they carefully screen their breeders and break ties with those found to be in serious violation. “We have developed a great partnership with our breeders and know them personally,” John wrote in a letter to City Council. “We have been

in their kennels and homes and continue to strive to provide our client families the very best puppy: happy, healthy, well-socialized, choice. We are continually improving our breeders, including the physical and social wellbeing of the parent dogs.” The USDA inspects breeding facilities using regulations set forth by the Animal Welfare Act of 1966. New federal legislation that took effect Nov. 18 adds regulation to breeders who sell sight-unseen over the Internet. Ohio is currently working on its own highvolume breeder legislation. The USDA inspects licensed breeder facilities once a year. Direct violations involve the health and well-being of an animal, while indirect violations are often maintenance issues, John said. Pet shops are not required to buy from USDA and American Kennel Club licensed breeders; however, the Stotteles said they choose to. They also said their breeder requirements voluntarily exceed USDA’s requirements. “Some pet stores do buy from unlicensed breeders and they are OK with that. I am not,” John said. John said of the 22 primary breeders he’s used in the past three

years, three have been cited for direct violations. He said he no longer buys from a breeder who was cited for sick and overheated puppies, but decided to continue buying from the other two after talking with them and determining their issues to be resolved. One was cited for tartar buildup on animals’ teeth and the other was cited for allowing an unlicensed veterinarian to perform “cherry eye” surgery on a dog, which John said was unharmed. The Stotteles’ breeders were also cited for 32 indirect violations — 14 of them for no one being at home when an inspector came by unannounced, John said. “I have no breeders right now that have had a direct violation in the past year. That’s the one I’m most concerned with,” John said. “Am I concerned with indirect violations? Yes I am. If a guy had repeat indirect violations over and over, I’d cut him off, but if he has direct violations I’m going to take a serious look because that breeder is not taking care of his dog.” John said he can offer families 35 years of expertise in choosing a dog. n FAMILY PUPPY CONTINUES ON 6

6. Community John said he can offer families 35 years of expertise in choosing a dog. He started cleaning kennels for a pet store in college and later became the chain’s district manager for Michigan. In 1998, the company’s owner was diagnosed with cancer and decided to close his shops. The Stotteles renegotiated leases for three of them. “I don’t know how many dogs families buy in their lifetime. Three, four, five? I’ve bought thousands of them, so I know how to pick a breeder,” John said. “If you’re not experienced in it, you can get snowed in a heartbeat.” But Robinson and others are not convinced. “The people of Northwest Ohio do not need to be duped into thinking they are buying quality puppies that have been carefully bred just because someone says they are,” she said.

Council reaction

Ludeman said he is sponsoring the ordinance because of Toledo’s “huge pet overpopulation problem.” “The sale of dogs and cats (companion animals) contributes to the proliferation of homeless or unwanted animals that are often poorly treated and/or end up in the public animal shelters and humane societies and animal welfare rescue organizations,” the legislation reads. “Prohibiting the unregulated sale of companion animals in pet shops, retail businesses, or other commercial establishments may lower the sale of dogs and cats from inhumane ‘puppy mills’ and ‘kitten factories,’ and may lower the shelter animal euthanasia rate, and lead to a greater adoption rate of shelter animals,” it continues. Ludeman — who is a Toledo Animal Shelter board member and former member of the Lucas County Dog Warden Advisory Committee — said he feels strongly the legislation is needed. “I just have a big philosophical issue with retail puppy stores like that. It’s just something I can’t agree with,”

Ludeman said. “You’ve just got to picture an operation of 50 to 100 dogs. I don’t know how you can call it anything other than a puppy mill.” City Council will likely address the ordinance at its next meeting Nov. 26. Ludeman said he expects several members to propose amendments. Mayor-elect D. Michael Collins said he is concerned about unintended consequences. “I haven’t made my mind up as to where I am on the legislation,” Collins said. “But I would hope the author of the legislation would take the testimony that was given last night (Nov. 19), in particular the concerns, and modify the language to the extent that it isn’t overly aggressive against an industry, where good actors are treated the same as bad actors.” Councilman Mike Craig said he thinks the legislation is “a terrible idea.” “If we want to ban sales then let’s just say we’re banning retail sales,” Craig said during the meeting. “Don’t couch this as we’re trying to police something because we’re not. We’re trying to ban retail sales of pets in Toledo.” “If you make people operate in a way that there is no possible way they can make money, that is a ban,” Craig later added. “If you want to say that to sell cigarettes in the city of Toledo, it’s 150 bucks a pack, I don’t care what you say, that’s a ban on sales. Just call it what it is. “When other people are talking or I’m talking, I like to look at the faces of the people listening and see what their reactions are. When I said it was a ban, I looked at the proponents and six or seven of them were shaking their heads yes, so they know perfectly well what they are doing.” Craig said he’d like to see Council adopt legislation that regulates but doesn’t ban. “They are losing an opportunity to encourage business but hold them to a higher standard,” Craig said. Councilman Tom Waniewski also

seemed skeptical. “I’ve heard a lot of attacks on puppy mills when the legislation is an attack on The Family Puppy,” Waniewski said. “That’s what we have to weigh here: Are they getting them from a good puppy mill or a bad puppy mill? That’s what I’m trying to distinguish here. I think there’s still some more to be done with this ordinance.”

Business concerns

Ron Johns, a University of Toledo student who unsuccessfully ran for City Council, said antibusiness legislation hinders Toledo’s economy. “It’s really ironic that you guys are saying you want new business to come to Toledo. However, you’re

passing legislation like this,” Johns said. “When you wonder why Toledo’s economy is lacking, I can tell you; it’s because of politicians passing legislation like this.” Businessman Bill Delaney, another unsuccessful City Council candidate, said people deserve a right to choose. “We have a tendency sometimes to throw people out of this town, by whatever means,” Delaney said. “This man has a right to be here. He has paid his fees, got his permit, done everything he’s supposed to do to set up his business. He has a right to be here and people have a right to choose what they want to do.” Ludeman said he disagrees that the legislation is anti-business.

“This a whole different type of animal — excuse the pun — than other types of businesses in Toledo that want to come and start up,” Ludeman said. Gail Dick of the Ohio Association of Animal Owners told Council her group feels the legislation is “unfair and unnecessary.” “The ordinance as we understand it was written specifically to drive this particular business establishment out of town,” Dick said. “It is unfair to assume and classify commercial breeders as unreputable because they sell animals to a retail establishment. It is also very disrespectful to portray all commercial breeders as neglectful [and] uncompassionate.” n FAMILY PUPPY CONTINUES ON 7

didn’t really talk [about my business],” John said. “Why wouldn’t she talk about those three [breeders with violations] she sent to City Council? That really put a question in my mind of what’s up. Why wouldn’t she want that on the record? I was prepared to answer those questions. She’s investigated me enough and doesn’t really have any dirt on me except the three

direct violations, because we do what we do and we’re very serious about it.”

Shelter perspective

Steve Serchuk, former board member with the Toledo Area Humane Society, Lucas County Dog Warden Citizens Advisory Council and Humane Ohio, said his biggest concern was that The Family Puppy

doesn’t spay or neuter its puppies. “Those animals are going to have more offspring and ultimately those offspring are going to fall to the nonprofits or the tax-sponsored dog warden,” Serchuk said. John Dinan, former director of the Toledo Area Humane Society, also spoke in support of the legislation. “Reputable breeders do not sell dogs through the pet shops,” Dinan said. “That’s just the way it is.” The bill’s current language would make the retail sale of a companion animal a first-class misdemeanor. There was some talk of that being too steep, but Dinan said he disagreed. “Since this is regulating a revenuegenerating business, if the penalties are not stiff enough then it just becomes a cost of doing business,” Dinan said.

about,” he said. The Stotteles said paperwork is available for every puppy, including a pedigree, interstate vet certificate, vaccination records, breeder inspection reports and more. “Any dog that’s out there in the kennel, this is available to you to come in and look at,” John said. “I’m not hiding anything. We’re trying to be as transparent as we possibly can.” However, during her remarks to Council on Nov. 19, Robinson said she requested records on a puppy during a recent visit to the Toledo shop and was told they could not be found.

Adoption program

The Family Puppy also offers an adoption program. Since 1998, staff have spayed, neutered and placed more than 11,000 puppies and kittens, mainly kittens, the Stotteles said. “We want shelter animals to get adopted,” Debbie said, noting that each store features a banner that reads “Have you visited your shelter first?” “It’s just that it’s not for everyone.” John said he wouldn’t be able to run a business selling animals from shelters, as the city proposes. “There have been stores that have done that and they can’t pay the bills,” he said. “The reality is, as Americans, as Toledo citizens, we have the right to decide if we want to buy a purebred dog, a purpose-bred dog. We have the right to do that in America. For them to say that a pet store can only sell from shelters really limits what we can do. “Some of the things in the proposal says breeders that sell to pet stores might not have exercise, might not have vet oversight, it might help us to adopt more dogs out of shelters and it might help shut down bad breeders,” John said. “It won’t. It’s not going to do what they want it to do. All its going to do is put me out of business.” O

The Stotteles only sell breeds that have track records of being good family pets and said they strive to help customers succeed. With each sale, they include My Pet Trainer, a 15-month e-course training program, as well as a one-year subscription to on-call behaviorists at the Good Dog Hotline, a 60-day health care plan and a microchip to reunite lost or stolen dogs with their owners. John said he feels the criticism that pet shops encourage “impulse buys” is unfounded. “Most people we see have been thinking about getting a dog for a long time. They’ve been looking in the paper, they’ve been talking; they’ve thought about it for days, sometimes months, sometimes years,” said John, who added that the average cost of a puppy is $850. “When you get a dog from a neighbor or family member, that’s more of an impulse buy.

Commander of 180th leaves for Joint Chiefs of Staff job By Danielle Stanton

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

Col. Steven Nordhaus is leaving his post as commander of the Ohio Air National Guard’s 180th Fighter Wing at Toledo Express Airport to take a position with a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Maj. Gary Bentley with the 180th Fighter Wing confirmed the decision Nov. 18 and said he didn’t know yet who will be Nordhaus’ replacement. “We expect an announcement as to who the next commander is shortly but we don’t know now,” Bentley said. “It could be as soon as a couple of days from now.” Nordhaus was selected to become executive assistant to four-star Gen. Frank Grass, a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who is in charge of the country’s National Guard Bureau. Bentley called the move “unique” because normally such a high-level post would go to active duty personnel and Nordhaus is a reservist. “It’s because we’ve worked very hard to have what we call ‘jointness,’” Bentley said. “The National Guard and

active duty [personnel] work together seamlessly. When we go overseas to Iraq or Afghanistan, we go together.” Nordhaus has been commander at the 180th Fighter Wing since January 2011. Before that, he served as vice commander starting in August 2009. Nordhaus graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1989 and continued training as a pilot in Texas, New Mexico and Florida. In August 1991, he became an F-16 pilot out of Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida. From there, he instructed at various places including South Carolina, Idaho and Korea. He landed in Toledo in 1998 as an instructor and moved on to squadron commander and other posts. The 180th Fighter Wing will honor Nordhaus at a celebration Nov. 25 at the base, where Nordhaus will perform his “fini flight” or last flight in honor of his departure as commander. Nordhaus will take off about 2 p.m. and land about 3:30 p.m., Bentley said. A cake and reception will follow. “He’s been a great leader,” Bentley said. “I can’t say enough positive things about him. He took a great wing and made it better and he will be missed.”

On Nov. 24, Emmanuel Baptist Church will dedicate a new $1.6 million children’s wing that adds more space, more color and more security to the church’s ministry for children, from infants to elementary school kids. Decorated with vibrant wallpaper featuring cartoon-like backgrounds from the Bible era, the new wing adds about 20,000 square feet of space to the existing 8,000-squarefoot children’s area, which was built in the 1960s. “The old children’s area was really outdated and overcrowded,” said the Rev. Duke Crawford, senior pastor since 2009. Traffic in the new wing’s hallways should flow much more smoothly — unless people stop and stare at the artwork. The wide hallways spring to life with the heavy-duty murals by Wacky World Studios, a company whose founder, Bruce Barry, honed his craft working for Universal Studios and designing Rainforest Cafes. The Rev. Dave Rodgers, pastor of soul care and family ministries, pointed out that the children can write on the walls in the new rooms — “but only in specified spots,” he quickly added. The leadership of Emmanuel Baptist, a church founded in 1898 and affiliated with the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches, had been discussing adding a new children’s wing for about 10 years, Crawford said. As of spring 2012, they had saved up $500,000 toward a $2.5 million blueprint for the new addition. Everything needed to get the project going came together unexpectedly when the building fund was boosted by the bequests of two estates — those of Beulah Lewis, who owned the Scripture Supply Store in Sylvania, and Roger and Florence Dunbar, who in 2000 had also helped fund the building of Emmanuel Baptist Elementary School, now Emmanuel Christian School. The church suddenly had $1.5 million in the bank, Crawford said, and the leadership decided to scale down its plans so the children’s wing could be built with the money in hand. “It’s a wonderful thing how God worked on this,” said Crawford. The church hired Thomas DuBose

& Associates for the architectural work and The Dotson Company as general contractor. Ground was broken in October 2012 and the project took a little more than a year to complete. Crawford said Emmanuel Baptist has invited all the construction workers and others involved in the project to attend the dedication service because the 700-member church would like to honor them for their efforts. Standing in one of the wide, brightly lit hallways shortly before the building was completed, Crawford said security has been a priority from the start. Parents and guardians will have to sign their children in, and no adults will be allowed into the children’s areas unless they are working. “Safety is a big thing throughout the whole check-in and check-out process,” he said. Rodgers, who joined Emmanuel Baptist in 2008, said the floors are divided into “splash” areas with tile, for kitchen and crafts, and carpeted areas for playtime, Bible stories and other activities. Each room in the new wing has its own bathroom, he added. Coinciding with the dedication of the new addition will be the release of a new children’s book titled “Breeze & Slate,” written by Crawford and illustrated by church member Sandy Chipka. “It’s a story of two horses. The one with the best master is the one with the best life. Jesus is the best master to serve,” Crawford said. Crawford said the focus of Emmanuel Baptist’s children’s ministry is to give the future generation a Biblebased foundation. “We want a children’s ministry founded on God’s word. The most significant thing to us is that the children learn about Jesus,” he said. For the dedication on Nov. 24, Emmanuel Baptist Church will host an open house from 9-10:45 a.m.; a worship service from 10:30-11:45 a.m., and a book sale from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The church is at 4207 Laskey Road, Toledo.

A Toledo tradition since 2005

LGBT community

By Sarah Ottney


Toledo’s Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla isn’t just a fancy night out that longtime attendees look forward to each year. It’s also the longest running annual fundraiser benefiting local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) causes in the state. Taglined “the premier social event for LGBT community and friends,” the 36th annual event will take place 4-11 p.m. Dec. 8 at The Toledo Club, 235 14th St. Tickets are $75; a group reserving a table of 10 will receive two complimentary bottles of wine. Attendees can expect an elegant evening with a served dinner, cash bar, DJ and dancing, live entertainment, 50-50 raffle and plenty of networking and socializing opportunities, said Rick Cornett, a member of the group’s board of directors. “The Toledo Club is a historic and beautiful place for our event and all the Christmas trees and decorations are breathtaking,” Cornett said. “It is a great way to kick off the holiday season for a good cause that benefits the local LGBT community.” Jazz vocalist Kelly Broadway will perform during the cocktail hour. Grand Lubell Photography will offer Photo Booth Live. New this year is a special guest performance by the Toledo Opera and a Latin Dance Expo by Michelle Brewer. A DJ will take requests for dancing all night. Drag entertainers MaKayla Sinclair Styles and Rya Chiffon along with male models from Cityboyz Fashion Menswear will sell 50-50 raffle tickets. Reserving tickets early is suggested as the 300-seat Gayla has sold out for the past several years, Cornett said. Reservation deadline is Dec. 2. “Since we have outgrown the main dining room upstairs, the dining portion of the evening will take place downstairs on the entire first floor,” Cornett said. “This gives us an additional 50 seats. We did this last year for the first time and it worked out really well.” All are welcome, said Cornett, who has attended the event since 1991. “Although this charity benefits LGBT causes, we want everyone to know that our straight allies are welcome to join us,” he said. “The evening is a fun mix of younger and older people who enjoy the diversity the

LGBT community is known for. This isn’t an invite-only event.” Among this year’s beneficiaries will be Rainbow Area Youth (RAY), a local nonprofit peer group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning teens age 13-19. “We are excited to be benefiting Rainbow Area Youth this year for the first time,” Cornett said. “That organization is a great asset to the needs of LGBT youth. Coming out can be a hard and scary time for someone young who is trying to find acceptance from family, friends, classmates and co-workers. I wish a group like RAY had been around in the 1980s when I was coming out and trying to find my way.” Last year’s Gayla raised $13,000 for beneficiaries including The Toledo Pride Foundation, the Toledo office of AIDS Resource Center Ohio, The Gay and Lesbian Student Endowment Fund at the University of Toledo and The Holiday with Heart Fund. All funds raised stay local. “Each year we raise more money than the year before,” Cornett said. The Holiday with Heart Fund is administered through the Toledo Community Foundation. The fund was established in 2011 in memory of Gayla co-founder Dick Flock. Once an initial $25,000 is raised, the fund will be used to support local LGBT causes year round. So far, almost $19,000 has been raised. “Once this goal is met we will be able to disperse funds to various local LGBT causes throughout the year,” Cornett said. “This year we dipped into our general fund and assisted Pride Center 419 with a donation of $650 to help them with daily operations. We are committed to keeping all funds raised here in Northwest Ohio.” The Gayla has become much more than just a fun social evening, said Ed Hoffman, Flock’s partner, fellow event co-founder and committee member. “More and more it’s taking on the role of a major fundraiser so we have something for the future,” Hoffman said. “There are so many needs out there and many of the needs of the straight community and the gay community coincide. The fact of the matter is, it’s important to all.” Other committee members are Andrew Larsen, Wayne North, Kennyetta White, Steve Maenle and David Bingham. Full time volunteers include Billy Mann and Rickie Waugh. Toledo Free Press is a media sponsor of the Gayla. For more information, visit O

A Toledo tradition since 2005

Scot Rossi sees potential and usability where most see vacancy and blight. The Toledo architect began his craft designing factories and hospitals, but could easily spend the rest of his career on what he calls “adaptive reuse.” There is certainly enough to do. “I found out that there is almost 2 million square feet of unoccupied buildings Downtown. That is a big niche,” said the partner at Rossi & Associates. “I don’t call myself a historic preservationist. Ninety percent of my clients are private businesspeople. They don’t want to mess with federal grants and tax credits. We are into adaptive reuse and doing smart things to old buildings.” Rossi was the mastermind behind the Bartley Lofts, which involved converting a concrete warehouse into 50 condos ranging from 1,200 square feet to more than 2,500 square feet with two levels of indoor parking and a rooftop pool.  When he was designing Pizza Papalis, which had been home to Brenda’s Body Shop, some preservationists complained. One of them even said, “Do we really want a pizza place in Downtown?” Rossi fired back. “How about I put the stripper pole back in? How would you like that?”  The usually personable Rossi became irritated because they were fighting development. If every building in Downtown had to be historically accurate, hardly anything would get saved, he said. “There were a lot of people who tried to get in the way and block it.” But Rossi said the sometimes contentious business of finding new uses for old buildings is worth it. He would rather find a way to reuse a building than knock it down. He can’t talk much about his current project without his client’s permission; however, it involves finding a new use for a Downtown mail center. “I see a lot of potential in Downtown,” Rossi said. “One of the first buildings I did in Downtown was the Durty Bird. There was a young kid who had a love for that building and he had an inside scoop where the ballpark was going to be. Everyone told him to knock it down and make a parking lot.” The building should have been condemned, Rossi said. It had sat empty for years and had excessive water damage.  n ROSSI CONTINUES ON 14

14 Community n ROSSI CONTINUED FROM 12 A couple of million dollars later, Durty Bird opened. It also opened Rossi’s eyes to what could become of other empty buildings in Downtown. “That was the worst-conditioned building I have ever seen and if I can bring that back to life, I see no problem with any building.”

Laying a foundation

From the start, Rossi could differentiate between what his dad did as a structural engineer and what the architects did. “The architects made the building function and aesthetic, and he made them stand up. He designed the beams and columns; we designed the floor plans,” Rossi said. But he doesn’t consider himself an artist. “It has never been what I think should be there. It is what the client wants, what plan commission allows, what the building permit allows,” he said. “Every architect should know what the laws and codes are, especially with ADA. You don’t just get to work with a blank sheet of paper.” Rossi graduated from UT in 1981 with an associate degree in architectural technology and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The Ohio State University in 1984. “My father gave every family member the same opportunity: Go to college, become an architect or engineer and then you can share in the ownership and partnership in the firm. My brother Brad and I accomplished that.” One former professor, Daryl Blanchard, remembers Rossi well.

Rossi’s dad, Robert, started the company under the name R. A. Rossi, Consulting Engineers in 1960. The first location was at Dorr Street and Byrne Road. By the early ’70s, the elder Rossi had moved the firm to its current location at 970 S. Byrne Road, in a building he bought and later added onto. “I knew I wanted to be an architect when I was 8, 9 years old,” Rossi said. “The only time I saw my father was when he dragged me in here. He worked seven days a week. I used to hang around here and he would put me on a drafting board and I would just sit and draw. “One of his architects, I walked by his office and saw a beautiful rendering, and thought, ‘Boy, that is what I want to do.’”

A Toledo tradition since 2005


Scot Rossi graduated from UT in 1981.

“He was always a cheerful and happy person. He always seemed to be interested in buildings because his father is a structural engineer. He had grown up around building structures. He was always interested in how buildings were put together.” Rossi said Rossi & Associates is an unusual partnership because most architects don’t work directly with engineers. They are typically at odds, he said; they think differently. n ROSSI CONTINUES ON 15

He told architect Bob Martin, founder of the Collaborative, “I don’t want to work for the family.” “He was the one who talked me into staying in town, because you can become a big fish in a little pond here. It was easier to do what I wanted to do than if I ended up in New York or Boston like a lot of my friends,” Rossi said.

Rough draft

After college, Rossi worked on Whirlpool factories and hospitals, among other local and out-of-state projects. At that time, he did drawings by hand. “We have done Dana, Ford and Chrysler. We started out as an industrial firm, but they just don’t build factories here anymore,” he said. The firm employed 38 people at one time, compared to eight today. Computers changed the business drastically. “One day our office manager set this monster of a computer on my desk and said, “There you go.” Older architects often don’t work on computers or know computer-aided design, he said, but nearly everyone who works at Rossi & Associates is an expert in it. “It was something kind of forced on us. You spend all that time learning something in school and then it is like, ‘Do it this way.’” The company struggled at first. “That is one reason the firm dwindled. We had people who couldn’t acclimate. Old-school guys said, ‘I am going to retire, these darn computers.’” Even today, Rossi does 75 percent of his drawings himself, but he doesn’t sketch something on a piece of paper and hand it to someone. “I still like to draw by hand and conceptualize by hand. I still like to make models.” Rossi got into churches as his career progressed, as did his brother who designed St. Joan of Arc and St. Andrew United Methodist. One of Rossi’s favorite jobs was St. James Church “The Armory,” which seats 2,800 people. “The space is acoustically perfect. They built it for a shell space and it sat for years and years and years,” Rossi said. “Then they interviewed every architect in town. When they got to me I realized they were going through the phone book. I walked in and every architect had their renderings on the wall.” The bishop had a huge request: Everyone had to see its stained glass window.  Rossi’s favorite part of working with churches is the committees of people who all have ideas about how it should be designed.  “It is like doing a house for 500 people,” Rossi said. “If you just appease everyone, you are doing the client a disservice. You have to mix it up and not everyone is going to get their way.” Pastor William James said of The Armory his late father got the project started with Rossi, while he saw it to fruition. “The goal was to make it more contemporary. Scot saw the vision that we wanted and helped us build a state-of-the-art facility. He knew where we were trying to go and he took that concept and built on it.”

Blurred lines

Rossi gets his vision from the client. It is about what they want to do. It is about their problems with the building and how he can solve them. Whenever possible, he likes to keep the bones of a Downtown building: the overhead door, the brick wall, the exposed structure and the overall industrial look of it. But again it comes down to what the clients want. Many building owners want energy-efficient windows, while a historic preservationist would recommend taking them out, restoring them and putting them back in. “Replacing the old windows is a no-brainer to me,” Rossi said. Often, the building has to be gutted. “You are getting rid of the mechanical systems that are antiquated — steam boilers in basements and taking care of the areas riddled with asbestos.” One of the problems he often sees is horse hair in the plaster, which can cause anthrax. That is why Rossi always advises his Downtown clients to hire his “tester guy.” “If I work in a vacuum and work all by myself, I am not going to be successful. I represent the owner. I hire mechanical and electrical engineers. I help them find the right contractors and subcontractors.” When he designed Ann Albright’s condo, she opted to keep some of the features of the former mill location. When the grain was rolling over the wooden wheels, it created a beaded effect on the wood. Albright accented her condo with this wood. “As much as possible, we try to keep something in the building and do something fun with it,” Albright said. Rossi is great to work with because he understands what private developers are up against, she said. He also did her Swan Creek

Candle Company location, which won a preservation award. “If you are financing the project yourself, you have to make it work. He understands that the best,” she said. “You can go get money, but then you have to do it their way. Ultimately, I did the numbers on it and you don’t save any money by going after grants. You are better off finding an architect like Scot and making it work.” Albright said she also likes keeping the bones of the building, leaving the beams and exposing the brick. “We leave as much as possible of the history of the building within the constraints of present-day codes,” she said. Some of Rossi’s clients struggle with understanding why they need handicap bathrooms for their restaurants, especially if it is for the third floor. What people don’t realize is that handicap isn’t just a person who needs a wheelchair, he said. Handicapped could mean blind or hearing impaired. Rossi is direct with his clients. “This is what the government says you have to. We can fight it. Here is how much money it will cost. We won’t win.”

Rewriting history

Diane Keil-Hipp, president of the Warehouse District Association, said finding new uses for old buildings is encouraging but needs oversight. Starting in January, members of the association’s architectural review committee will review proposals for Downtown buildings. Their suggestions will factor into whether developers can get a permit from the City of Toledo. “We try to be flexible and broad and protect the integrity of the neighborhood. It is a fine line and something you do on a case-by-case basis,” Keil-Hipp said. “We  have some good people on our committee who are broad thinkers and they have invested in

the neighborhood themselves and understand, ‘Hey, I am the one forking over the bucks.’” Ohio Historic Society spokesman Tom Wolf said developers are encouraged to preserve the significant historic aspects of a building, but if developers aren’t using tax credits or grants, they aren’t under any obligation. He said saving a building can come in many forms and it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. “In general, we like to see older buildings reused whenever possible,” he said.    That’s something that works for Rossi — and his clients. He gets some of his best ideas for adaptive reuse when he is at home on his four acres.  Even though he comes into the office every day, it isn’t until he gets home and eats dinner that he can relax and work from his office.  Although building from the ground up is a rare — and coveted — project, he chose not to build his South Toledo house. “I would go insane. I would get information overload. But when you give me an old house with good bones, well, I know what I can and can’t do. I am in the process of renovating my house for the past 15 years,” he said, laughing. Rossi has never been married, but has been with the same woman, Karen Dunne, for 27 years. She more than anyone sees his commitment to adaptive reuse. She loves to watch over his shoulder as he works.  Dunne is a manager at Stella’s in Perrysburg, which Rossi also designed. It’s hard to go anywhere without seeing his touch on something, she said. She especially loved seeing his satisfaction when the Bartley Lofts were finished.  “I am fascinated to see something he has on paper and then six months to a year later it is standing,” she said. “The thing about Scot is he doesn’t like what he does, he loves what he does.” That love could save Downtown.

Bank of Maumee purchased by Princeton Capital By Jay Hathaway


A Maumee bank has landed a new backer, freeing it from the confines of a previously dismal situation, its president says. The Bank of Maumee, 3425 Briarfield Blvd., has turned its majority ownership over to Princeton Capital, a holding company based in Princeton, N.J. The majority share was previously held by the now bankrupt Capitol Bancorp of Lansing, Mich. The shift officially took place Nov. 18. The Bank of Maumee’s president, Kevin Rahe, said the change was welcome. “As Capitol Bancorp’s financial condition continued to deteriorate, we started looking to exit. We had tried twice previously, and then last year, they actually declared bankruptcy,” Rahe said. Capitol fell on hard times during the housing market crash, but still managed to continue operating some of its banks over the past three years. Inversely, the Bank of Maumee, founded in 2006, had enjoyed a fair amount of growth throughout the years. Despite that growth, Rahe said the association with Capitol had become restrictive. “Capitol always stated that they would be able to provide additional capital, as needed. If we continued to grow, we expected them to provide additional capital. Well, we grew, and that was the same time they started to have their difficulties, and they were not able to provide the capital necessary to meet our growth.” While Capitol Bancorp struggled to keep its problematic bank holdings afloat, the Bank of Maumee continued to be hamstrung by the diminished support. “Those [other banks] became a real source of difficulty for our balance sheet,” Rahe said.



Incidentally, it was Capitol’s relationship with the Bank of Maumee that brought Princeton into the mix, though indirectly. Gary Hoyer, CEO and managing member of Princeton, said that his group was initially looking for investment opportunities through Capitol. When the investors declined, Princeton looked at Capitol’s federal bank holdings and took an interest in the Bank of Maumee. “We had been looking for a federal savings bank for a period of time,” Hoyer said. “A bank is not something you can just go into a store and pick off the shelf. You’ve got to look around for one that may meet some of your criteria, and one that you may be able to negotiate for acquisition.” “While we knew generally where the bank was, we had never visited [the area], and actually had no idea where Maumee was,” he added. At first, Capitol did not want to sell the Bank of Maumee. However, after considering their need for cash they eventually reconsidered. Hoyer said he was initially skeptical about acquiring a bank in Northwest Ohio, due to the recent economic struggles of Detroit and the Rust Belt. However, after visiting the area, he realized that Maumee has much to offer. “We were very pleasantly surprised,” Hoyer said. “It is a fantastic community that obviously really supports community banks, which was really important to us. There is a tremendous amount of small-business activity and a diversified economy. We kind of did a ‘180’ in our thought process.” One of the first things that Hoyer and his colleagues from Princeton did before purchasing the Bank of Maumee was review the bank’s loan portfolio. They then went out to meet some of the bank’s customers. “We think there’s a lot of value in smaller institutions, and we very much like the idea of a community bank supporting vibrant

communities like Maumee,” Hoyer said. “I tip my hat to everybody there in the area. They’ve done a great job struggling through what was a tough economy.” Both Hoyer and Rahe agreed the new relationship between Princeton and the Bank of Maumee will provide great benefits for both entities, as well as the community. “The people that have been here, the customers we have here, everyone we have dealt with for the last seven years remains the same,” Rahe said. “What Princeton brings to the table is a business model for residential mortgages and commercial lending that fits perfectly into our thrift charter. We have that source of revenue to grow, based on their business model, yet maintaining the community banking flavor that we’ve had for the last seven years.” “We bring some additional capital, and the bank needs [that] for purposes of strength and opportunity growth, [and] we bring some new products and services to the bank,” Hoyer added. With Princeton’s backing, the Bank of Maumee will now be free to take advantage of its federal lender status, and seeks to increase its local presence in mortgage loans. “A federal thrift is typically focused on providing a lot of consumer and residential mortgage loans, but [under Capitol Bancorp] Bank of Maumee never did any of that,” Hoyer said. “That will change.” The bank of Maumee will continue to provide small business loans in the area and throughout the Great Lakes region as well. Though Princeton now owns a 51 percent majority share of the Bank of Maumee, Rahe emphasized that there are still a significant number of local investors, and additional investment prospects. “Because of the opportunity we have available, there still is an opportunity for qualified — and I emphasize ‘qualified’ — investors to invest in the holding company, Princeton Capital.” O

Another look at the Federal Reserve System

Note: Part 2 in a series. hen the United States was still on the gold standard, depositors could literally take their greenback notes to a bank and exchange them for gold or silver. Great Britain used to be on the gold standard as well, until 1914 and the start of World War I, when their need for cash to finance the war surpassed the need to trade currency for metal. Following World War I, the U.S. became the world financial leader as it was not bogged down by debt and excessive spending from the war, and had roughly as much gold as all of Europe combined. Following the war and the start of the ’20s, the U.S. had a brief bout of unemployment and inflation, but the fiscal policies of Presidents Harding

and Coolidge helped introduce an eco- doors for good. Of course, this was nomic boom. During this decade, the before the days of FDIC.

Buy, hold or sell stocks now? T his year we have seen major gains in the stock market indices. This follows gains made in the past four years. This now puts many of the major stock market indices at all-time record highs. Some investors are now starting to feel comfortable with getting back into the stock market, while other investors are starting to wonder if it is time to sell. So what should you do? The answer depends onwhether buying or selling would increase the probability of an investor reaching their financial goals. Just because the stock markets are at an all-time high doesn’t mean it’s time to sell. It also doesn’t mean that all stocks in the index are overpriced and aren’t attractive to buy. Mark Let’s remember that in the short term the performance of the stock market is Nolan beyond your control so we recommend considering the following three guidelines:

Guideline No. 1: Reasons to buy stocks

The six month period from November to April has gained 473 percent for the SP 500 since 1990. That is nine times greater than the 52.6 percent return achieved during the May through October time frame, according to BTN Research. Although the S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index that you cannot invest directly into, it shows that, if history repeats, there could be more market gains to come. The younger an investor is, the more time he or she has on their side to successfully invest. In most cases any younger worker should start to save a portion of their income in a retirement savings account, such as a 401(k) or an IRA. Ask any retiree and you will learn the value and importance of saving early. Stocks can also be a great option for part of a retiree’s savings. Many times the goal of stock investing for younger investors is growth. Although growth is still important for a retiree, income can be a more important goal during retirement. Certain dividend-paying stocks still offer great income options for retirees that are not available in most traditional fixed accounts.

Guideline No. 2: Reasons to stay in stocks

Keeping part of the portfolio in stocks can make sense for most investors at any age. Yet, while stocks indices are close to or at an all time high, it is important to review the downside risk management strategy. In our office, we call it having “circuit breakers” in place on stock accounts. Instead of trying to time the stock market, the primary objective of adding this to a portfolio is to protect against significant

losses. With the technology available today, protecting gains can also be accomplished as well. Long-term investors with little to no current need of their investments who avoid allowing their emotions to get involved in making investment decisions may also be better able to ride the ups and downs of the stock market. Looking back at previous years, we learn that over the long term, owning stocks can be a great investment.

Guideline No. 3: Reasons to sell stocks Consider paying off your debt. For a retiree having debt can be a major drawCLAIR back to a relaxing retirement as it often takes a large part of the monthly spendBAKER able income to cover debt payments. I have told many investors I have met with that it’s O.K. to use the profits, just try not to touch the principal. Investors on track and ahead of their goals should review paying off any outstanding debts. Investors who are more conservative could sell some stocks to protect gains. Don’t forget about what happened in 2008. Stocks have grown significantly and an investor’s portfolio may have gotten out of balance. Bonds have gotten a lot of negative media attention lately, but not all bonds are bad investments. They can still be used to help diversify a portfolio. Principally protected investments are also safe places to move gains into. Protect income. Add up the income sources - work, Social Security, pension and investment income. We believe it is important to have a plan B in place with income needs. This can be accomplished by keeping three to five years’ worth of money in safe investments. In the event of a major stock market downturn, an investor could change his or her investment income strategy and draw current income needs from the safe money and not be forced to sell stocks in the down market.

A Toledo tradition since 2005

November 24, 2013


By Amy Campbell

Toledo Free PreS s Staff Writer

It’s safe to say that most people enjoy cake, but can they be entertained by cake? Answers in the “yes” column may have been boosted over the past several years by the increasing number of cake competition shows on TV, but a live cake decorating show? Really? Yes, really. The crowd at the Stranahan Theater on Nov. 16 left no doubt that cake is cool, especially if it’s being iced, piped and made fondant-fantastic by the Cake Boss, Bartolo “Buddy” Valastro. The star of TLC’s “Cake Boss,” “Cake Boss: Next Great Baker” and, most recently, “Bakery Boss,” was greeted like a rock star as he made his entrance down the left aisle of the theater, giving high fives to screaming fans. Even after he’d ascended to the stage and the packed house settled down, occasional shouts of “I love you Buddy!” punctuated the relative quiet, and were usually answered with, “I love you, too.” Buddy is the boss, and now the TV-star front-man, for Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, N.J., established in 1910 and owned by the Valastro family since 1964. An institution in Hoboken for decades, Carlo’s became nationally known when “Cake Boss” premiered in 2009. The reality show follows Buddy and his crew, made up largely of family members, as they create elaborate cakes for a range of occasions and clients, pull pranks on each other and navigate the occasional infighting. Buddy is the youngest of five children and the only boy, so one could understand if he’d wanted to pursue other aspirations and leave the family bakery to his sisters. The thought never crossed his mind, he said. “I started at the bakery at a very young age and grew up learning everything there was to know about the business,” Buddy said. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do.” Buddy told the audience his goal was to help them become the cake boss in their own kitchens. With the help of a cameraman and a big screen above the worktable, Buddy demon-

strated first on cupcakes, always telling the audience what tip he had on his piping bag in case they wanted to try it at home. After piping a “puff flower” with thick icing petals that made the audience “ooo” and “ahh,” he said, “Now moms, next time you’re making something for a bake sale, that’s what I want to see.” He created three different flowers, ending with the 3-D rose. Using a tool called a “rose nail” as his platform, he deftly squeezed and maneuvered the piping bag to the delight of the audience. Then, it was time for a little showmanship. “Now I’m going to do one for you blindfolded,” he said. The crowd cheered, then hushed as he began. The finished rose, as perfect as the first, prompted another cheer, and some earnest speculation from a little girl in row M. “I think he practices that,” she said. All the treats created on-stage were given away to audience members, with winners decided by lighthearted competitions including a hula hoop contest. While the holistic marketing effort beind the production could not be denied — a grocery chain that carries Cake Boss frozen cakes sponsored the show, Cake Boss baking supplies featured prominently and plugs for the new TV show abounded — Buddy seemed exceedingly genuine and was honest about what you need to decorate cakes, and what you don’t. Demonstrating the proper application of fondant to a cake, he pulled out a fondant smoother and told the crowd it was a necessary tool for the job. “Now, I see I have an air bubble in my fondant,” he continued. “So I’m going to use this poker,” he said, producing a thin wire with a handle. “This is an unnecessary tool. You can use a toothpick.” Buddy’s Toledo appearance was one of 16 he’s making in November alone, most on consecutive nights. He does it, he said, because it’s important to him to meet as many of his fans as possible, but there’s another reason, too. “My father always wanted Carlo’s Bakery to become a household name,” Buddy said. “The best part of all of this is that I’m making my dad’s dream come true.” O

A Toledo tradition since 2005


By Matt Liasse Toledo Free Press Staff Writer

When newlyweds Ben and Cassy Vollmar first met in 2010, they talked about coffee. Ben, dreaming of one day own his owning coffee shop, and Cassy, wanting to open a cart selling flowers and coffee, realized they had similar dreams right away. “That was fun; right off the bat we started talking about coffee,” Cassy said. Today, the two are making their dreams reality. The couple plans to open Flatlands Coffee this spring at 138 N. Main St. in Bowling Green, next to Ink Mafia Body Art Studio. A Kickstarter campaign for their collaborative effort went live on Nov. 2. They hope to raise $60,000 by Dec. 2. Together, the two want to make what they called “an authentic coffee experience.” “[Our vision is] just to create a welcoming, creative-inducing atmosphere where customers can really enjoy the uppermost quality

in terms of service and product,” Ben said. “Our mission is to bring the best in the country to Bowling Green, Ohio.” The two have done research by touring the country and visiting toprated coffee shops in an attempt to learn as much as they can. Ben became most passionate after visiting Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea in Chicago. “You can taste the difference, smell the difference and see the difference in the whole atmosphere,” he said. “Every little detail spoke quality and you could easily experience that for yourself and make the same judgment. It was really obvious.” With Flatlands, Ben will assume responsibility for the coffee and Cassy, the atmosphere. “We’ve been able to see what others are doing, which can spark further ideas,” Ben said. The coffee shop will offer many different brewing methods, including: a siphon pot (Ben’s favorite), pour-overs and an espresso machine. Flatlands will serve roasts by Zingerman’s Coffee Company, Actual Coffee, Counter Culture Coffee,

Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea, La Colombe Coffee and Populace Coffee. “We’re always trying to perfect, tweak and make the coffee taste to its best capability,” Ben said. “That’s where service really comes in and is really important. We don’t want to be overwhelming but we want to be, at the same time, empowering customers to make knowledgeable, educated decisions as a consumer.” Ben decided he wanted to open a coffee shop six years ago. It began as a project for one of his college courses where he was to write a business plan. “The school project really got the ball rolling,” he said. Ben’s first idea was to open a venue that would be half coffee shop, half laundromat. With research, Ben quickly realized it wouldn’t work. His business plan for Flatlands Coffee has been tweaked many times since. Working at The Flying Joe in Perrysburg ignited his passion even more. Ben, born and raised in Bowling Green, always wanted to open his shop in his hometown. n COFFEE CONTINUES ON 20

Toledoan cooks up ‘Chicken Soup’

Toledo Free Press Pop Culture Editor

For years, Jill Kemerer has written stories, hoping to bring a little more light into the world. In addition to being a full-time mom, the Toledo resident has worked as a self-described “inspirational romance novelist.” “I write Christian romance novels. I’m not published yet,” Kemerer said in an interview with Toledo Free Press. “I’ve been writing full-time for about six years now. I KEMERER just really enjoy it, and am hoping to break in.” Now, after years of work honing her skills, Kemerer’s writing will soon be in front of more readers than ever before — her story “Operation Christmas Puppy” appears in the new “Chicken Soup for the Soul” collection, titled “It’s Christmas!” “I actually had a critique partner who actually had published through ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul,’ and she was really pleased with how the process went. And I thought, ‘Well, I might as well try it, too,’” Kemerer said. The process of submitting a story for inclusion in the series is surprisingly simple, Kemerer noted. The official website for the long-running series — — has directions for prospective contributors, notes on upcoming books in the franchise, deadlines and more. “And you actually just submit it through an online form — so it’s just very painless,” she said. Kemerer realized she had a subject that fit perfectly into the new holidaythemed collection. A story that took place four years ago, while the family n COFFEE CONTINUED FROM 19 “It’s got a great community but it’s limited in creative spaces,” he said. “All of the [Starbucks] locations here are so small and a lot of times you go in there and you won’t find seating … In addition to that, we have community spaces, but it’s for alcohol. We have a lot of bars. It’d be nice to add variety to that.” The two are putting a lot of planning into the store-front as well. Ben said it will look “radically different” from other stores Downtown. “We’re completely redoing the whole thing,” he said. “We’re bringing in some new ideas that we’ve only seen in Chicago and Seattle that Bowling

lived in Monroe, telling how Kemerer and her husband surprised their two children with the gift of a new puppy on Christmas Eve. “We had told our friends and family about it, obviously, when we got the dog — how we did it. But this was the first time I really put it into writing,” she said. “It’s really a fun little story. My husband and I wanted to get our kids a dog, and he had a friend who happens to breed little miniature dachshunds. And they were going to be ready right before Christmas. “So we ended up giving it to them for Christmas, and making it a surprise for them.” Given the trials involved in making the actual Operation Christmas Puppy a success — as detailed in her writing — Kemerer said that putting the story down on paper was the easy part. “It was actually really fun. I did it more as a diversion. I’ve always liked the books, and I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll try this.’ It was actually a really easy process for me. I mean, I feel really blessed, it didn’t take long to write,” she said. “I have a blog, and I tend to write very personal things on there, too. So the story itself felt like an extension of that, I guess.” Kemerer said she’s happy her tale will be part of a franchise as good-hearted as “Chicken Soup.” “I think they’re really warm, nice publications. You can read them and always have a smile on your face when you’re done, you know? If you’re looking for just a quick, happy moment in your day, they’re the perfect book to pick up.” Kemerer also takes joy in being part of a project that celebrates a time of year that’s dear to her heart, and to the hearts of many — though even during the holidays some hearts need a bit of healing. “Christmas is a really special time for a lot of people, and I think it can be a really painful time for a lot of people, too — because it does bring up memo-

Green has not experienced yet.” They plan to market their shop to students at Bowling Green State University. “We have the advantage that we’ve been students,” Ben said. Anyone can make a pledge at www. flatlands-coffee-an-authentic-coffeeexperience. The money would go toward the space, supplies, inventory, marketing, training and more. Pledgers of different magnitudes will receive incentives, ranging from a handwritten thank you note, T-shirts, bags of coffee, hand-crafted ceramic mugs, a table named after them when the shop opens and more. O

ries that maybe weren’t really so pleasent. So, when you can read about a situation where some kids really did get a dream come true, it kind of maybe, in some way, makes you feel better,” she said. “Christmas is that magical time where something really special

can happen.” And as an epilogue to her “Chicken Soup” tale, Sophie — the mini-dachshund at the center of “Operation Christmas Puppy” — may no longer be a puppy, but she is still a part of Kemerer’s family.

“Sophie is curled up right next to me, under a blanket, because that’s her favorite spot,” Kemerer said. “And the kids are still — they’re just getting older, and still love her. She’s just been a really fun addition to our family. She’s a good dog.” O

Your Tarotgram and Horoscope

Nov. 24 – 30, 2013

Events: 3rd to 4th quarter Moon Aries (March 21-April 19)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Uncomfortable truths require processing time. Consider best responses on Tuesday. After Wednesday, your attention is absorbed by social and family holiday activities. Groups may be larger than usual. The weekend offers inspiration and mind-expanding experiences.

You may decide to set limits this week, possibly to steer clear of the typical holiday extravaganza (and its costs). Do less and do it beautifully! Style counts more than quantity. A new friendship gains momentum as the weekend arrives. Be open to new experiences.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Persuading people to accept your viewpoint or plans will take patience. Gentle persistence leads to success. The holiday is fun-filled and gratifying; avoid over-indulgence. Dominant personalities compete for attention. Seek unusual weekend entertainment.

Others waffle and hedge on things that seem like good deals to you. Wait for them to come around to your viewpoint. Focus on love and generosity after Wednesday; you will be surrounded by lots of people. Someone tries to impress you, but may go too far.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Fuzzy thinking slows progress as the week begins. Clarify intentions on Tuesday. Being well-organized and sticking to a plan will give you more time to enjoy holiday socializing. People share exciting news about upgrades. Be ready for thrilling adventures on Saturday.

Keep your clear vision even when surrounded by fog. Staunch certainty reassures others. Big plans may have to be kept under wraps for now. Dive into the social joys of the holiday. Engage in sports, traveling, or tours; discover a new network and a new friend.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Obstacles that seem insurmountable to you may be a breeze for others. Look at the big picture and re-evaluate midweek. The holiday will bring joyful encounters and news about marriages or births. As the weekend arrives, you’ll be ready for fresh landscapes and travel.

Wrap up old business early in the week. Focus on big gains rather than small disappointments. Events after Wednesday are especially joyful, and draw you toward plenty of fun and holiday treats with a variety of people. Children deliver special rewards.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Excessive piles of details “make work out of work” as the week begins. You overcome the pile by Tuesday. Upbeat messages from family and friends start arriving on Wednesday. Holiday gatherings may include unusual or foreign guests. Lucky timing yields benefits on Saturday.

Your sleeping schedule may be disrupted as the week begins. Get back on track on with a relaxing activity on Tuesday evening. The holiday is special because of new arrivals, traveling, or travelers. An unusual hope or wish may be fulfilled after Friday.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Your personal connections with long-distance and seldomseen people are revived and renewed this week. Uncertain situations are clarified on Tuesday. Cooperative scheduling facilitates everyone’s visiting priorities during the holiday. Good ideas pop up on Saturday.

The week may begin with anxieties. A bad situation can be fixed; solutions are presented on Tuesday. A fabulous holiday kicks off early on Wednesday with friends. Family members share many positive updates. After Friday, a fresh set of priorities roars into motion.

The lands, lots, and parts of lots, in the County of Lucas, forfeited to the state for the nonpayment of taxes, together with the taxes, assessments, charges, penalties, interest, and costs charged thereon, agreeably to law, and the dates which said lands, lots, and parts of lots will be offered for sale, are contained and described in the following lists. Notice is hereby given to all concerned, that if the taxes, assessments, charges, penalties, interest, and costs charged on said list are not paid into the county treasury, and the county treasurer’s receipt produced for the payment, before the respective dates mentioned in this notice for the sale, each tract, lot, and part of lot, so forfeited, on which taxes, assessments, charges, penalties, interest, and costs remain unpaid, will be offered for sale on the respective dates mentioned in this notice for said sale, at One Government Center in the county, in order to satisfy such taxes, assessments, penalties, interest, and costs, and that the sale will be adjourned from day to day until each tract, lot and part of lot specified in said list has been disposed of, or offered for sale. If the tract, lot, or part of lot so forfeited, is sold for an amount that is less than the amount of the delinquent taxes, assessments, charges, penalties, and interest against it, the court, in a separate order, may enter a deficiency judgment against the last owner of record of the tract, lot, or part of lot before its forfeiture to the state, for the amount of the difference, if that owner of record is a corporation, the court may enter the deficiency judgment against the stockholder holding a majority of the corporation’s stock. Notice is hereby given to all concerned, that the forfeited tracts, lots, and parts of lots that are offered for sale pursuant to this notice may be subject to a federal tax lien that may not be extinguished by the sale or are subject to the right of the United States to redeem any tract, lot, or part of a lot that is subject to a federal lien and purchasers of the forfeited tracts, lots, or parts of lots are urged to search the federal tax lien index that is kept by the county recorder to determine if notice of a federal tax lien has been filed with respect to any of the forfeited tracts, lots, or parts of lots. Further notice is hereby given that procedural defects informer judicial proceedings may prevent any purchaser herein from acquiring good title to such lands, lots, parts of lots and that a title company may not guarantee title in the purchaser. Therefore, it is suggested that the purchaser consult an attorney and/or title company in advance of the sale to determine whether the purchaser will acquire good title. The County Auditor does not guarantee title nor deliver any warranty to the purchaser. This sale will commence at the Lucas County Courthouse, and will be immediately adjourned to the County Commissioners Hearing Room located in One Government Center.

Rules of Sale

Lucas County Auditor Forfeited Land sale Please note changes in the Rules Revised October 2, 2013 1. All sales are final. All payments on day of sale are non-refundable deposits. 2. Individuals who are attending the Auditor’s Sale for the first time with the intent to purchase a property are advised to proceed with extreme caution. The law in Ohio relative to Real Estate is “Caveat Emptor”, which means “Buyer Beware”. If the purchaser obtains a property that is different than the one he or she intended to purchase, the purchaser is still obligated to purchase the property or forfeit a substantial amount of money. Notice: Many of the properties offered for sale have undesirable characteristics, which have prevented sale in the past. If you have not carefully researched the property and physically viewed it, you may wish to reconsider bidding on the property. It is expected that all purchasers have contacted a Real Estate Attorney and Title Company prior to bidding. 3. Minimum bid is $60.00. Bids of $300.00 or less must be paid in full the day of sale. Bids over $300.00 require a deposit of half (50%) of the bid price. All deposits, fees and paid in full parcels will be required to be paid immediately at the close of sale for each parcel. Additional charges for deed preparation, transfer fees, recording fees, and current postage which total $73.99 are in addition to the bid price, Ohio Revised code 5723.12(A). You must have your money with you at the time you are bidding. No one will be allowed to leave and return at a later time to pay their deposits. Remember– if you do not have your money with you, don’t bid. Each parcel must be paid for immediately at the close of sale for each parcel. No checks, credit or debit cards will be accepted. Deposits will be accepted in CASH ONLY. The deadline for final payment is ten (10) business days from date of sale. Final Payments may be made by cash, or money order in the County Auditor’s Office, 7th floor, in the Forfeited Land Department. No extension of time will be permitted. If payment is not made in full on the 10th day, the purchaser will forfeit any monies paid in, and the parcel will be offered to the back-up bidder for the same price. The back-up bidder will have ten (10) business days to pay in full or the property will be offered at our next scheduled sale. 4 The Auditor’s Office will only prepare a deed in the name of the successful bidder, unless a Bid Release Form is filed. The bid release form allows a citizen to bid for another taxpayer who is unable to attend the sale. If you plan on putting property in a company name, you must have a copy of the Articles of Incorporation on file in the Auditor’s Office, prior to the sale. If your name is not included on the Articles of Incorporation, you must have a written letter of authorization submitted prior to each Forfeited Land Sale. The purchaser does not become the owner until the deed is delivered to the County Recorder. This will be about two (2) weeks after the sale. You cannot enter the property, alter it, or

remove anything from the property until you are the owner, which is after the deed is recorded. Notice: entering the property without the permission of the owner(s) or occupant(s) is a violation of the Ohio Revised Code section 2911.21 punishable by up to 30 days in jail and/or a fine of $250.00. further, physically removing the property of the occupants without a court order, even after receiving the deed, may result in civil or criminal liability. 5. The Auditor reserves the right to require payment in full on day of sale for select parcels marked by asterisk (*). On such select parcels the full bid price must be paid by cash or certified funds within 30 minutes of time of sale. 6. Forfeited lands shall not be transferred to any person that is delinquent on real property taxes in this state. Consequently, all purchasers will be required to sign an affidavit of prior non-ownership and present valid identification. Any sale that is refused for this reason will result in a forfeit of all deposits and may be prosecuted. 7. The County Auditor cannot give any warranty of title. All sales are subject to Federal Tax Liens, if any. Parcels designated as In-Rem are sold subject to all prior liens. The County Auditor does not give any representation regarding possession, eviction, prior inspection, scheduled demolition, health code violation, or any other matter. Buyers are encouraged to investigate these matters prior to the sale. 8. Attendance will be limited by seating capacity on a first-come, first-serve basis. You must register and have a bid card to participate in the bidding (there is no fee to register). Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. Sales will commence at 10:00 a.m. 9. The auctioneer may increase the minimum bid increments at his discretion in order to keep the bid process moving quickly. Do not delay in making your bid. Sale is final at the strike of the gavel. All decisions of the auctioneer are final. Acceptance of your bid creates a contract between you and the County Auditor. The Lucas County Prosecutor may file a lawsuit for breach of contract if you fail to pay the full price. You may be prohibited from participating in future sales. Bidding on property with the intent to delay the sale or with the intention of not paying the bid price constitutes the crime of obstructing official business under O.R.C. 2921.31. Persons violating this section may be prosecuted. 10. Sales are conducted based solely upon the permanent parcel number of the property. The county does not use addresses for any purpose. The county is not responsible for inaccurate addresses provided in the county records. The county does not warrant or guarantee any information provided in the county records. 11. Unsold parcels will be re-offered for sale a second time immediately following the last sale item for that day.

November 24, 2013

A Toledo tradition since 2005

The Lucas County Auditor will publish a list of delinquent lands in the newspaper the weeks of December 8th and December 15th, 2013. This delinquent land list will contain the NAME OF OWNER, a description of the property and the total amount of taxes, assessments, recoupment charges, penalties, and interest due and unpaid at the settlement. Delinquent lands will be certified for foreclosure by the auditor pursuant to law, unless the taxes, assessments, interests, and penalties are paid. An interest charge will accrue on accounts remaining unpaid after the last day of November unless the taxes are paid or the taxpayer enters into a written understanding to pay such delinquent taxes in installments. Any or all of such delinquent lands are subject to a tax certificate sale under section 5721.32 or 5721.33 of The Revised Code. The office of the County Treasurer will be open during normal business hours to accept payment of delinquent taxes. The names of any taxpayer who pays in full prior to seven days before publication will be removed from such list. Questions regarding the payment of delinquent taxes should be directed to the Lucas County Treasurer, 419-213-4305.

Lady Lady is a 1-year-old female shorthaired gray tiger. She has a beautiful speckled coat that makes you wonder if she has a little Abyssinian mixed in her. Lady is timid and a bit on the independent side. Lady likes to sit in your lap and have her ears rubbed. She would be happiest in a calm, quiet home where there isn’t a lot of activity. Lady is currently up for adoption at the humane society’s offsite location inside the PetSmart store in Rossford. Toledo Area Humane Society is located at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Arrowhead Park, Maumee. Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
