‘There is no money to provide service–that is where we stand’
HSPU committee looking at a smaller, simpler transportation levy on May ballot
By Deb Buker
Last Tuesday, two hours
prior to the end of public
transportation in Perrysburg, Rosalinda Brown
asked members of the city’s
health, sanitation and public
utilities (HSPU) committee,
“will there be transportation
tomorrow? I need to know
what I can do about tomorrow. I need to know how I
am going to meet my and
my grandchildren’s basic
needs.”
At its November 27
meeting, councilman and
HSPU committee chairman
Todd Grayson responded to
the question.
“Ms. Brown, the service
ends today. There is no
money to provide service
past today. We have no service past today until May 7
when hopefully the voters
will approve the next levy,”
said the councilman. “That
is where we stand–there is
no money.”
“Until May 7, I have
nothing?” Ms. Brown again
questioned. “It is a travesty
on your constituents.”
Councilman Grayson
said he can offer her nothing. “I absolutely agree. I
can’t blame you for being
upset and I can’t say it better myself–it is a travesty.”
Perrysburg voters turned
down a 1.45-mill public
transportation levy by less
than 200 votes on the
November ballot.
At the HSPU meeting,
discussion took place on
possibly streamlining the
city’s public transportation
needs allowing for a smaller
levy amount to be placed on
the May 7 ballot.
“At some time we will
recommend to council that
we put this back on the ballot. We do have the unfortunate luxury of time right
now,” said Councilman
Grayson, adding that May 7
is the earliest ballot date–“it
is our magic date.”
The councilman stated
his personal thought is to
reduce shuttle hours to
six–a three hour morning
shuttle and a three hour
afternoon/evening
shuttle–and continue the
ADA and dial-a-ride service.
“To me, that is where I
see it,” he said.
City Administrator Bridgette Kabat said it would
cost $43 to $44 an hour for
those three services.
Ride Right LLC, the firm
chosen by Perrysburg City
Council to provide transit
service with passage of the
November levy, also provided gap service from September 23, TARTA’s exit
date, through November 27.
The firm reported during
that 63 day period, more
than 1,220 trips were
made–an average of 19
daily trips.
“Ride Right indicated
that there are 30 to 40 core
riders that they see every
single day,” added Mrs.
Kabat.
Councilman
Tim
McCarthy asked if it is possible to obtain numbers on
people using the transit service for employment needs,
general needs and medical
needs.
Another concern discussed by the committee
was funding from May
through December 2013, if
voters approve a new transit
levy on the May ballot.
Because collection would
not begin until January
2014, the city would have to
fund the service for seven
months.
Mrs. Kabat explained
that there are several ways
to do this which includes
bond anticipation notes,
revenue bond anticipation
notes and general allocation
bond anticipation notes.
“You could also look to
utilize general fund dollars
and pay it back after the
fact,” she added.
Mr. Grayson asked
administrators to provide
several scenarios on cost
factors. He believes the levy
request could be reduced to
1.1 mill or 1-mill.
“I think it is fair–give
voters a little less milage, a
little simpler system,” he
said.
Perrysburg resident Mark
Hummer again stated the
November levy was confusing and not clearly defined.
“I think what needs to be
done is take the schools
model of very clearly telling
the community what is
going to be missing if the
levy fails. And turning it
around to ‘this is the service
you are going to get if you
pass this levy,’” he told the
committee. “It needs to be
clearly defined. Before, I
was not really clear on what
the service was. And I
believe if you define it with
the help of these folks who
need it most and add in the
largest group you can get–
this is a no brainer. This will
pass but it needs to be clearly defined.”
Transit rider and resident
Gil Lutz, who also serves on
the Perrysburg 4 Transit
committee, told those
attending the meeting that
he will now have the least
amount of independence in
his entire life.
“I cannot believe that the
city government proposed it
[the levy] the way that they
did, massaged it the way
that they did, and the voters
did not understand what
they were voting for. This is
one of the most confusing
things I have ever been
involved in my entire life.
And believe me, I’ve been
involved in a lot,” said Mr.
Lutz, who is legally blind.
“It is just absolutely amazing that we in this age and
in this era could turn our
back really on the community. And this is turning our
backs on the whole community–the people who need
public transportation.
“Property values are
going to suffer from this

Medical Transportation Guidelines
Client must be: age 60 or above and living independently in Wood County
Days of service: Monday - Friday, excluding holidays
Appointment hours: 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Cost of service: Cost-Share*
*All services funded in whole or in part through Older American Act funds or
senior community services funds are subject to cost sharing. Such services at
WCCOA include medical transportation. Cost Sharing determines what percentage of the actual cost of our medical transportation services provided that
an individual client may be suggested to pay based upon that client’s individual
income. The percentage of income is recommended to help share the cost of
the service with the agency and is based on a sliding fee scale determined by
the federal poverty guidelines. No service will be denied due to inability to pay.
GUIDELINES
•Transportation provided to a maximum of three medical appointments per
month per client.
•WCCOA will use its best efforts to serve all clients promptly and efficiently.
Availability of this service is on a first come, first served basis. At least two to
three weeks advanced notice for all appointments is recommended. If an
opening is available, last minute requests will be honored.
•Should one family member or friend wish to accompany the client, previous
consent of WCCOA is required. This companion must be at least 18 years of
age or older and sign a release of responsibility waiver form.
•WCCOA reserves the right to refuse transportation for procedures in which
sedation/anesthesia will be administered unless the client is accompanied by a
family member or friend. In this situation, the client’s first resource should be
family or friends.
•Advanced scheduling is needed for access to the wheelchair lift van.
•Transportation is provided to doctors in Wood County, Toledo and Findlay.
•To serve as many clients as possible, WCCOA may schedule more than one
client to ride in an agency vehicle at a time. In addition, clients may be left at
an appointment site while the agency driver provides other transports. In that
instance, the client will need to wait until the driver returns for them.
•WCCOA staff may provide individual assistance to clients, as needed, from
independent residences to the appointment facility.
•WCCOA reserves the right to refuse service if client’s home is inaccessible or
client requires excessive assistance.
•WCCOA assumes no responsibility for accidents or losses that may occur
during transportation process.
•Transportation will not be provided if the senior center is closed due to
inclement weather.
•WCCOA reserves the right to cancel transportation if weather conditions
make traveling hazardous for the driver and/or clients.
•Transportation services are for non-emergency situations only.
CLIENT RESPONSIBILITIES
•Client’s first resource for transportation should be family or friends.
•For clients who reside in Perrysburg and north of State Route 20, call the
Rossford Senior Center at 419-666-8494 to schedule transportation.
•Seniors residing in the remainder of the county should call the Bowling Green
Senior Center site at 419-353-5661 or 1-800-367-4935 to schedule their
appointment.
•Client must wear seat belt properly (front or back seat).
•Client must keep the Wood County Committee on Aging - Social Services
staff informed of any changes in client address, phone number, etc., as well as
changes in doctors, physical limitations (walking, ease in getting in and out of
vehicles, etc.)
•Client must inform Wood County Committee on Aging - Social Services staff if
they are or become a PASSPORT client.
•Clients must notify WCCOA as soon as possible regarding appointment cancellations or if alternative transportation has been secured, such as family.
•Clients who fail to notify WCCOA when transportation services are not needed will result in a “no show” for transportation services. Repeated violations
may result in termination of clients’ transportation services.
Grocery shopping services also are available. Contact the Perrysburg
Senior Center, 419-874-0847, for information.
loss. Because if you are in a
community with public
transportation all around
you and you don’t have it,
your property values are
lower. The people who didn’t vote for the $30 or $40 a
year are going to lose much
more than that in property
values.
“I am really surprised
and hurt. It is a shameful
situation.”
Resident
Gregory
Symington also said he is
sad about the situation.
“I am sick about this. It
is sad, it is very sad,” he
told the HSPU committee.
“I don’t have anybody to
help me. You do care, but
you don’t,” he said, adding
that he is in contact with the
justice department and possibly moving forward with a
lawsuit.
It was suggested by resident Pinky Eden that city
administrators gather information on agencies that provide alternative transportation for those in need and
list telephone numbers. [See
box above.]
“This certainly would
help. Also, we might start
organizing a program to
adopt seniors and veterans
to provide rides,” she
added.
The Perrysburg 4 Transit
committee is continuing its
efforts to work with city
officials and the community
in seeking and passing a
public transportation levy.

New cross shines on St. Rose Church steeple
A new golden cross is
now shining atop the
steeple at St. Rose
Catholic Church.
Last week workers from
Campbellsville Industries,
of Campbellsville, Kentucky, placed the new copper steeple and cross on
the church at 215 East
Front Street.
The church building
was damaged April 3 by a
lightning strike that set fire
to the steeple.
The fire caused the
cross to fall off the
steeple, hit the church roof
and the elevator enclosure, causing some damage.
The cost of the project–more than $400,000–
is covered by insurance.
Another lightning protection system also is
being installed for the
church.

ODPS’ patrol announces plans to
conduct ‘trace-back’ investigations
Families of those killed
or critically injured by impaired drivers in Ohio will
soon have an additional avenue to justice as the Ohio
Department of Public
Safety’s (ODPS) Ohio State
Highway Patrol (OSHP)
has announced plans to
conduct “trace-back” investigations on all fatal and serious injury crashes in
which alcohol and drugs
are suspected. Continuing
to serve an obviously impaired patron, providing alcohol to minors, or hosting
underage alcohol parties
are criminal violations that
may ultimately lead to fatal
crashes. In Ohio, nearly
400 people are killed each
year in alcohol-involved
crashes.
Through an integrated restructuring within ODPS
that will reduce facility
costs, streamline administrative functions and lead to
better
collaboration
through improved information sharing and oversight,
Ohio troopers will continue
to focus on the suspected
impaired driver, but Ohio
Investigative Unit (OIU)
agents (formerly referred to
as liquor agents) will now
investigate if there are
other criminal violations
which may have led to the
driver’s
impairment.
“Trace-back” investigations will be made available without cost to any
Ohio law enforcement
agency as well. Officials
said this may be the first
and most comprehensive
effort of its type in the
United States.
“While an internal examination of ways to reduce
internal costs and streamline operations was the catalyst, the main purpose is to
hold those responsible for
tragedy accountable and
deter future violations,”
ODPS Director Thomas
Charles said. “We owe it to
the families who have lost
a loved one, whose lives
never are the same because
of a senseless act, to find
out all the facts that led to
the tragedy.”
Director Charles said the
new structure will allow
OIU agents to focus efforts
on three keys areas: traceback investigations on all
fatal and serious injury
crashes in which alcohol
and drugs are suspected;
special investigations such
as human trafficking in
liquor establishments; and
investigations of serious violations of Ohio’s liquor
laws.
“Nearly every liquor permit holder and employee in
Ohio shares our goal of a
safer Ohio,” Mr. Charles
said. “We will shift our resources and efforts on those
who commit the most egregious violations.”
Federally funded food
stamp fraud investigations
and personnel will be a separate function within the
Department. Information
gleaned from OIU investigations will be shared with
the entire law enforcement
community. The Ohio State
Highway Patrol’s “Hub”
with its 24/7 Intel and information resource capabilities will be an integral part
of this new collaborative
effort and provide a resource not before possible.

The Ohio Highway Patrol discovered this hidden compartment in the car of a Chicago man as he travelled through
Lake and Perrysburg townships on the turnpike.
A Chicago man is facing
felony charges after Ohio
Highway Patrol troopers
found a hidden compartment
in his vehicle during a traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike in Wood County.
On November 28, troopers stopped a 2004 Chrysler
Pacifica with Illinois registration for a marked lanes violation near milepost 69.
After observing criminal
indicators, a drug-sniffing
canine was called in and
during a probable cause
search, the patrol found an
after-market modification
under the center console
which was determined to be
an electronic hidden compartment. The compartment
was opened and two cell
phones were inside.
According to Lieutenant
William Stidham, the driver,
Darius Meaux, 44, has a history of trafficking in narcotics. He has been charged
with hidden compartments
in vehicles, a fourth-degree
felony, and incarcerated in
the Wood County jail.
If convicted, he could
face up to 18 months in
prison and up to a $5,000
fine.
Mr. Stidham is charged
under a new law, Senate Bill
305, which was passed earlier this year.
The law prohibits designing, building, constructing,
fabricating, modifying, or
altering a vehicle to create or
add a hidden compartment
with the intent to facilitate
the unlawful concealment or
transportation of a controlled substance. It also
prohibits operating, possessing, or using a vehicle with
a hidden compartment with
knowledge that the hidden
compartment is used or intended to be used to facilitate unlawful concealment.
In another traffic stop,
the highway patrol recovered 25 marijuana plants that
had been thrown from a vehicle on I-475 in Wood
County.
The driver, Craig E.
Sheppard, 26, of Columbus,
is facing felony
drug charges
after troopers recovered the
marijuana plants and an
electric meter, used for marijuana cultivation.
Lt. Stidham said the patrolN was alerted to the vehicle by the Perrysburg
Township Police Department, which requested assistance from the patrol’s
criminal patrol unit after Mr.
Sheppard allegedly tried to
evade a township
Wofficer on
I-75 in Wood County.
Troopers responded to
the area and two witnesses
observed an occupant of the
suspect vehicle throw a large
trash bag out the vehicle’s
window on I-475, near milemark 2.
Troopers then observed
the suspect’s vehicle on
Eckel Junction
Road near
State Route 25 and initiated
a traffic stop. Mr. Sheppard
allegedly admitted to ownerWASH
ship of the contraband
and
told troopers he had just purN
chased
it in Michigan and
was enroute to Columbus.
He was incarcerated in

Reel Talk at Way continues Penta hosts Holiday Open House
with ‘Ship Ahoy’ December 6 Floral, cosmetology, culinary students showcase talents
Way Library continues its
Reel Talk classic film series
on Thursday, December 6, at
10 a.m., with the Red Skelton-Eleanor Powell musical,
“Ship Ahoy.”
Songs, comedy, spy spoof
and some patriotism thrown
in for good measure, Powell
plays a dancer who works
with Tommy Dorsey and his
orchestra. Skelton is the love
interest, and John Emory
poses as an FBI agent who
talks Powell into smuggling a
package for him during an
ocean cruise. But it’s a 1942
movie and you know everything will work out at the
end. A very young Frank
Sinatra is the singer with the
Dorsey band, and Buddy
Rich turns up at the drums.
Guest speaker Dennis
Vaughn will discuss the film
and take questions afterwards. Admission and
refreshments are free.

book will be available for
purchase and signing.
Chef Jim Rhegness offers some decorating tips to the
children. “The squeeze bag is your glue because the
icing is thicker,” he said.
On November 29, students in Penta Career Center’s floral, cosmetology and
culinary programs hosted a
Holiday Showcase.
Visitors to the event had
the opportunity to purchase
poinsettias and Christmas
craft items, many created by
local artisans, at the Petals
and Plants Shop of the floral
program. Student designed
wreaths also were available
for purchase, and visitors
could order holiday cookies
which will be prepared by
students in the culinary program.
Later in the day juniors
enrolled in the culinary program, offered a workshop on
the art of creating a gingerbread house with guidance
from instructor Chef Jim
Rhegness.
The students made 12
preassembled gingerbread
houses for children from 3
to 12 years of age and lined
an assortment of candy and
additional icing for the
young learners to use as decoration.
Chef Rhegness showed
the children several gingerbread houses created by the
juniors and encouraged the
youngsters to take some
ideas from those houses to
create their own unique gingerbread house.
In the cosmetology
department, students were
busy providing hair and nail
care services to clients.
Petals and Plants will
continue to offer holiday gift
items through December 21.
The shop is open 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. Monday through Friday. Cosmetology welcomes

Mobile Meals seeks
pet food donations
The Banfield Charitable
Trust, in partnership with
Meals on Wheels Association
of
America
(MOWAA), Banfield, The
Pet Hospital ® and The
Andersons General Stores,
are helping to feed hungry
pets this holiday season
with our annual Season of
Suppers campaign, a
national pet food drive,
which runs through
December 31.
The Season of Suppers
campaign, now in its seventh year, aims to feed pets
of homebound seniors who
receive meals from meal
programs across the country. The program calls
attention to the importance
of pets to the well-being of
homebound seniors. Helping keep these companion
pets well fed, healthy and
part of the family for as
long as possible became
the motivating factor
behind the campaign.
This holiday season,
Mobile Meals of Toledo
will be delivering pet food
to their meal clients who
need assistance in providing food for their animals.
Mobile Meals is asking the
community to donate pet
food or money to purchase
the food through an
alliance with Banfield, the
Pet Hospital and The
Andersons.
The two Banfield locations working with Mobile
Meals are located in the
PetSmart stores at Spring
Meadows on Airport Highway in Toledo and at
Crossroads Parkway in
Rossford. Donations will
be accepted through
December 31.
The Andersons General
Store locations at Northwood, Talmadge Road and
Maumee also will be collecting pet food donations
through December 31.
Cash donations to purchase pet food can be
made
on
line
at
www.mobile meals.org in
the donation section of the
Web site. Donors should
designate the funds for the
Pet Food Program.
“We know that many of
our clients are compromising their own nutrition by
sharing their meals with
their pets, often their best
friend and companion. The
more service Mobile Meals
can provide for pets leads
to better health and a
longer life for both the
meal client and their pet,”
said Carolyn Fox, associate executive director of
Mobile Meals.
For more information
on the program or how to
get involved, call the
Mobile Meals’ office at
419-255-7806.

Girl Scouts to participate
in Caroling for Cans food drive
The Rambling River
Service Unit of Girl Scouts
of Western Ohio is sponsoring a Caroling for Cans food
drive to help stock the
shelves of food pantries in
Perrysburg and Rossford.
The Scouts will be walking throughout their neighborhoods from November 30

holiday songs and stopping
at homes to collect nonperishable food items during
their caroling.
By participating in the

areas are taking part in a

where they are actively helping their communities, while
further developing their own
civic responsibility and leadership skills.
All food collected will be

Sweaters collected for homeless
Rossford dentist Dr. Bill
Zouhary again is organizing a
sweater drive that will benefit
the Cherry Street Mission and
Sparrow’s Nest homeless shelters.
Dr. Zouhary said he was
inspired to undertake the collection when he brought out
his sweaters for the colder
weather.
“A thought occurred to me:
why not throw 80 percent of
this montage–all the ones I
never wear–into a plastic bag
and deliver them to the homeless shelters in Toledo?” he
explained.
“And then, I had a second
thought. I bet that many other
people have a collection similar to mine.”
He is encouraging anyone
with clean, gently-used
sweaters to place them in a
plastic bag, keeping men’s and
women’s sweaters separate.
The bags can be dropped
off at Dr. Zouhary’s office,
849 Dixie Highway. Office
hours are Monday through
Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6
p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to
1 p.m.
He will accept sweaters
through December 31.
You are cordially invited to attend:

It all began when 9-yearold Dylan Rasor asked his
father for $100. He wasn’t
sure what he was going to
do with all that money, but
he thought it would be fun
to have a $100 bill.
Dylan’s parents, Matt
and Kristi Rasor, used that
“$100 moment” as a learning opportunity for their
son. They suggested the
third-grader start his own
business–not only to earn
money, but also to give back
and help others.
The Razors’ are very
familiar with business ownership as they own two area
laundromats. They know the
hard work and dedication it
takes to succeed–something
they want to instill in their
children.
Dylan, who likes to make
things and learn how things
work, decided to follow in
his parents’ footsteps and
start a business–a young
entrepreneur. He and his
father searched the Internet
for possibilities and looked
at several options including
soap making and kids’
crafts. However, candle
making intrigued the student.
The Perrysburg family
watched videos on candle
making, researched the
process, tested it and on
October 13, Dylan’s Candle
Company was created with
start-up funds from his
grandparents–a $100 bill.
The Fort Meigs student
then made another decision.
He wanted to donate $1
from each candle sale to
help children with juvenile
cancer, something very near
and dear to his family.
Seven years ago this month,
Dylan’s little brother lost his
life to cancer, only 21 short
days after he was born.
“This will help lots of
kids,” said the young business owner.
Describing the candle
making process, Dylan said
it takes about an hour per
candle.
Dylan Rasor with the help of his parents Matt and Kristi Rasor created Dylan’s
Candle Company. For each candle sold, Dylan donates $1 to children fighting
cancer.
“First you break up the
wax, then melt it, add the
scent and the dye and then
let it harden for at least 30
minutes,” he explained.
“You put the wick in and
after it is hardened, you cut
it.”
Dylan picked the candle
scents, colors and jars, and
family friend, Josh Cunning,
designed the labels for the
candles.
In less than 12 hours
after Dylan’s Candle Company went live on the Inter-
net, the entrepreneur had 24
orders.
But guess who received
the first candle? Grandpa
and grandma.
The candles come in
three sizes–Elemental Candles, 7 ¼ ounce, and 10 and
16 ounce Keepsake Candles–and a wide variety of
scents including cinnamon
stick, sugar cookie, warm
apple pie, candy cane, cappuccino mocha, peppermint
stick, vanilla cinnamon,
Christmas cookie, coffee,
holly berry, strawberry
cheesecake, white Christmas, vanilla ice cream,
vanilla bean and cranberry.
Dylan, with the assistance of mom, dad and 4year-old brother Jackson,
make a batch of candles
almost every evening and
then 15 to 20 candles on
Saturdays. All the candles
are made to order.
The candle maker said
his favorite scent is sugar
cookie and his least favorite
is coffee, but added that is
his mother’s favorite.
In less than two months,
Dylan has sold more than
195 candles with orders
coming from as far away as
California, New York, Texas
and Florida. He also has a
200 candle order for an
upcoming wedding reception.
The third-grader looks
forward to sending his first
donation check to “Kids
Fight Cancer,” a non-profit
organization with a mission
to provide pediatric and adolescent cancer patients with
a safe, educational and
entertaining environment
which reduces the stresses,
side effects and emotional
struggles confronted during
cancer treatments.
Dylan is saving his candle money for college and
said his goal is “to make a
zillion dollars and help kids
with cancer.”
The young entrepreneur
also hopes to expand into
local stores and vendor
shows.

Historic Perrysburg, Inc. unveils first streetscape sign
Historic Perrysburg, Inc. (HPI) recently unveiled its first of eight streetscape signs. Designed and sponsored
by HPI, the streetscape signs are being placed on each side of Louisiana Avenue in the 100 and 200 blocks. The
signs “go back in time” from the 1800s to the mid-1900s using historic pictures to depict changes in the built
environment.
“The pictures have been locked up in the local history room of Way Library, on the HPI Web site, in attics
and drawers of our residents,” said Dave Hoffmann, HPI vice president and streetscape sign project leader.
“HPI wanted to get these out in public so our residents and visitors would have a greater appreciation of our
architecture, history and cultural heritage.”
The first sign was installed at 114 Louisiana Avenue. Sign sponsors include the City of Perrysburg, Perrysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, Welch Publishing/Perrysburg Messenger Journal and Waterford Bank.
HPI currently is seeking two more sponsors to complete the set.
Above, from left, Mr. Hoffmann, Mike Barthold, HPI board member; Judy Justus, honorary board member,
and Joe Klein, board member, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the first sign.

A baker’s dozen–of puppies
WCHS seeking donations for mommy and puppies

City staff decorates Christmas tree in municipal building atrium
Perrysburg city administrators and staff joined together with Mayor Nelson Evans to decorate the city Christmas tree located in the municipal building atrium. Ornaments on the tree depict city departments and divisions.
Just a little over a month
ago, Maizy, a very pregnant
terrier mix, was owner surrendered to a local dog shelter. She was underweight and
deprived of essential nutrients required for a pregnant
dog. And after further examination, Maizy also was diagnosed with severe heartworm
which caused heart disease.
The dog shelter contacted
several rescue groups and
the Wood County Humane
Society (WCHS) answered
the call. On October 25,
Maizy was transported to the
humane society.
According to Megan
Baker, WCHS assistant manager, it is the shelter policy
to abort litters because there
already are so many unwanted pets in shelters and it is
not their mission to raise litters.
“We only do this though,
if the mother is in excellent
health,” she added. “And this
was not the case for Maizy.
Her condition put her at serious risk of crashing during
surgery, and our only option
was to let her have the puppies if she was strong
enough and could survive
labor.”
Ms. Baker took a special
interest in the case and took
the mom-to-be home with
her for constant supervision.
On November 7, Maizy
began early signs of labor
and later in the day went into
active labor.
“Her mother instincts
kicked in right away and
amazingly, she made it
through the long night,” said
the assistant manager. “After
eight hours of labor, Maizy
delivered 13 puppies–a
baker’s dozen–and all were
healthy. Maizy was just fantastic and is doing a wonderful job caring for her puppies.”
Ms. Baker also noted
when Maizy was x-rayed, it
only showed five puppies.
The WCHS staff said she
had a “baker’s dozen” for
her new best friend Ms.
Baker.
The puppies, named by
the staff–Pretzel, Anni, Cla-
Maizy and her “baker’s dozen.”
Zel, Ryder, Minster, Mary,
Rebel, Astaire, Basil,
Audrey, Gable, Tori and
Grace Kelly–are black and
white, tan and chocolate in
color.
The puppies are too
young for visitors now, however, if anyone is interested
in adopting one of the
baker’s dozen, applications
are being accepted at the
humane society.
Once the baker’s dozen
are weaned, mom will undergo treatment for heartworm.
The treatment is very
costly and WCHS is seeking
donations. Checks can be
either dropped off at the
humane society or mailed to
WCHS, 801 Van Camp
Road, Bowling Green, Ohio,
43402.
And, Maizy has found her
forever home with Ms.
Baker.

defeats St. Francis, 48-34
By Andy Brungard
The Perrysburg High
School boys basketball team
traveled to St. Francis on Friday, November 30, to pick up
its first win of the season.
PHS, picked to finish third in
the Northern Lakes League,
looked to defeat a St. Francis
team coming off of a 3-19
season with no returning
starters.
It was an intense crowd,
which led to several
turnovers and no points
scored through the first two
minutes of the game until
Shane Edwards got a deep
rebound and drove to the
basket, leading to an easy
layup and a 2-0 Perrysburg
lead.
St. Francis quickly responded, and the score was
2-2 with five minutes to play
in the first.
St. Francis stole the momentum shortly after, tying
the game after a technical
foul from Edwards. The
Knights received two free
throws and an extra possession, which resulted in a
three-point shot and a 7-2 St.
Francis lead.
Nick Moschetti added a
jumper from the elbow, and
Quinn Thomas hit a pair of
free throws after being
fouled while shooting a
jumper, and the score was 86 Knights with 2:21 till the
second.
Both offenses struggled to
produce points, playing
scrappy defense.
St.
Francis’s
Evan
Wheeler hit a shot from the
free throw line with 10 seconds left in the quarter to
give the Knights a 10-7 lead.
Moschetti started the
quarter by scoring on a baseline jumper on Perrysburg’s
first possession. The Jackets
then took the lead on their
next possession when Matt
Mesker grabbed an offensive
rebound and immediately
dished it underneath to Nate
Patterson, who laid it in. Patterson then scored after a
long feed from Bryan Byrd
to give Perrysburg a threepoint lead, 13-10.
St.
Francis
played
scrappy on both ends of the
court and forced a 15-15 tie
midway through the second.
Jackets leading scorer and
hot hand Nick Moschetti hit
a three after receiving a
cross-court pass from Byrd,
and the Jackets went up 1815 with four minutes till half.
Q. Thomas added a basket after scooping up a loose
ball with a minute and thirty
seconds left in the half, and
Bryan Byrd hit a jumper
from the elbow with five seconds left, giving Perrysburg
a 22-20 lead going into halftime.
The third quarter started
with little scoring from either
team. Both defenses hustled,
scrapped for loose balls and
denied second shots. Six
minutes into the third quarter, the score was 24-22 Perrysburg.
St. Francis’s Lamar Carswell tied the game after
driving to the basket and
scoring with 2:10 left in the
third.
Both teams played inconsistently during the rest of
the third quarter, but St.
Francis outscored the Yellow
Jackets 7-3, and took a 27-25
lead into the fourth quarter.
Opening the fourth quarter, Patterson hit a short
jumper for the Yellow Jackets to tie the game at 27.
Edwards received a pass
in the lane on the next possession and laid it in, and
both teams were suddenly in
sync on offense, 29-29.
Moschetti hit a three with
3:13 left in the game to give
Perrysburg a five-point lead.
Moschetti led all scorers
with 17 points, and Perrysburg finished the game with
a 19-5 run to win 48-34.
The Jackets are now 1-0
and will travel to Holland,
Ohio, to face Springfield
High School on Thursday,
December 6.

Lady Jackets cage
Northview Wildcats
By Andy Brungard
The Perrysburg Lady Yellow Jackets started off their
season Tuesday, November
27, with a tough test, taking
on defending league champion Northview Wildcats.
Northview comes into the
season losing All Ohio guard
Miriam Justinger but boasts
three straight Northern Lakes
League titles.
Northview won the tip,
but Perrysburg dominated the
quarter.
Perrysburg caused two
turnovers on the Wildcats’
first two possessions and took
a quick 5-2 lead after an
Abby Sattler three pointer.
A stifling Perrysburg defense allowed only four
Northview points in the first
quarter, with both baskets
being scored by Wildcat post
player Maddie Cole.
The Yellow Jackets’ Alex
Brown put an exclamation on
the breakout first quarter with
a post jumper to give Perrysburg a 14-4 lead heading into
the second.
In the following quarter, it
was more of the same from
Perrysburg. Lindy Delong hit
a three pointer to start the
quarter and amp up the crowd
and her teammates.
Northview silenced the
celebration, going on a 4-0
run, and settling in on defense.
A. Brown got the Jackets
back on track by dribbling
through the Northview zone
defense and scoring an easy
layup. On the other end,
Brown grabbed a defensive
rebound and threw it up court
to Molly Whitacre, who
raced to the basket and
scored a heavily contested
layup, making the score 24-9
with three minutes remaining
in the half. The Lady Jackets
then reeled off six unanswered points and took a
commanding 30-11 lead into
half-time.
The Jackets outscored
Northview 12-7 in the third
quarter thanks in large part to
an outstanding effort from
Sara Baer, who had a teamhigh 13 points and 10 rebounds. The dagger and
42-18 lead came when Katie
Dunphy hit a three from the
corner, giving the Jackets an
almost insurmountable lead
with a minute left in the third.
The fourth quarter started
with little scoring, but the
Jackets
caused
five
Northview turnovers in their
first six possessions.
Northview tried to open
up the outside shooting game
to catch up, but Perrysburg’s
defense was too quick and
the Lady Jackets out rebounded the Lady Kats.
The final score was PHS,
53; Northview, 32–a big win
for the Lady Jackets in the
NLL.
Perrysburg went on to win
a decisive 55-32 victory over
Southview High School on
Friday, November 30.
Sara Baer led the scoring
for the Jackets with 12 points.
This brings Perrysburg’s
record to 2-0 on the season
and in the NLL. Their next
game will be Friday, December 7, at Bowling Green High
School.

PJHS plans
holiday dance
Donations of laundry detergent
being accepted at area schools
Perrysburg Schools will hold a laundry detergent drive
November 26 through December 7, to benefit area families
in need.
Perrysburg High School intervention teacher Diann Toffler began the collection after learning that individuals who
receive food stamps are unable to use them to purchase
basic necessities such as laundry detergent, body soap and
personal paper products.
“Personal hygiene, or lack thereof, can have a direct impact on one’s self esteem and further on one’s ability to
learn,” said Ms. Toffler.
Area residents are asked to consider donating a container
of laundry detergent to help those in need in the Perrysburg
community. Donations can be taken to any school or
dropped off at Way Public Library.
The Healthy Neighbor Program, implemented by Perrysburg Schools, is a confidnetial program to help those in
need in the school district. This year the schools will join
forces with local food pantries for distribution.

Toledo Area Humane Society named
winner in Rachael Ray Challenge
loving cats and dogs in our
shelter with the right families.
Working together, not only
did we save hundreds of animals and enrich the lives of
new adopting families, we’ve
been awarded an overall total
of $30,000, including the
check for $25,000 that the
ASPCA Award Committee
surprised us with today.”
The Toledo Area Humane
Society started off strong in
the month of August, holding
a MEGA adoption event
where they found homes for
nearly 100 animals in just two
days. TAHS also took to
social media to promote the
work they were doing, posting videos of their adoptables
and plenty of photos of happy
adopters. In just the first
month of the Challenge,
TAHS found homes for 441
pets (for which they were
awarded a $5,000 “Fast Start”
grant by the ASPCA).
“We are incredibly thankful for all of the support we
have received from the community, not only during this
Challenge, but year-round”
said Dr. Johnson.
Patrol reminds motorists to buckle up
The Ohio State Highway
Patrol is encouraging all
motorists to buckle-up. In
2011, nearly 65 percent of the
people killed on Ohio’s roadways were not wearing a safety belt. During the first three
months of 2012, safety belt
citations by Ohio troopers are
up 19 percent over 2011, and

during this time unbelted traffic fatalities decreased by 16
percent.
According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, safety belts
save over 13,000 lives every
year and remain the single
most effective thing you can
do to protect yourself in a
crash.
Ohio’s safety belt law
remains a secondary violation,
however troopers continue
zero tolerance enforcement
when motorists are stopped for
other violations and are found
not wearing their belt.
The following Toth Elementary School students were
selected by their teachers to receive the “Got Grit?”
award for the month of November. These students were
nominated recognizing them for “getting along with others.” Award winners will be guests at a pizza party with
Dr. Christoff. The pizzas are donated by Rene Williams of
Marco’s Pizza.
Award winners with Principal Beth Christoff include,

TMA program highlights for Dec.
The Toledo Museum of
Art announces the following
program highlights for December. Admission is free.
Continuing Exhibitions
Leslie Adams: Drawn
from Life, through January
13, in Gallery 18. As a
young girl Leslie Adams attended art classes at the
Toledo Museum of Art.
Today she is nationally
known for her portraits of
distinguished members of
society and civic leaders.
The first recipient of the
Solo Exhibition Award of the
venerable Toledo Area
Artists Exhibition in 2011,
Ms. Adams presents a new
body of approximately 20
works incorporating Old
Master painting compositions and drawing techniques. This work is
autobiographical, weaving
classical references with a
dash of 20th-century pop
culture. In it, she conveys
memories of TMA and its
collection together with
other people, places and objects that have shaped her
career and life.
Prints and Authors
from the Time of Manet,
through January 13, in
Works on Paper Gallery.
Édouard Manet (1832–83)
came of age during a time of
prolific change in Paris and
in French society in general.
While earlier artists produced works of biblical and
mythological subjects full of
history and allegory, artists
like Manet began to paint
more freely and to be inspired by the life around
them. Prints, photographs
and illustrated books are included in this exhibition of
artworks produced during
Manet’s lifetime. Approximately 120 works by some
of the most talented artists
working in the period–including Renoir, Corot, Daumier, Whistler and Manet
himself–are featured.
Museum People: Faces
of TMA, through January
10, in Gallery 1. Museum
people–those who visit and
support
art
institutions–come from all
walks of life. Last spring,
hundreds of Toledo Museum
of Art community members
of all ages stopped by to
have photo headshots taken
by local award-winning photographer Jim Rohman and
his assistant Giles Cooper to
be included in this exhibition, featuring a sea of nearly
700 faces. The collective
community portraits are
shown
floor-to-ceiling,
“salon style,” adjacent to the
Manet: Portraying Life and
Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal
Foundation exhibitions.
Community Gallery
•Community Gallery
Portrait Invitational with
ArtReach Portraits through
January 10, in the Community Gallery. Select artists
from past Community
Gallery exhibitions were invited to create works inspired by Édouard Manet’s
style, his methods or his subjects. Fifty talented artists
are represented in this free
exhibition featuring works in
painting, paper, ceramics,
photography, metals, glass
and mixed media. Also in the
Community Gallery this season, see portraits made by
participants in TMA Community ArtReach summer
workshops.
•Portraying Life in
Toledo Photo Exhibition,
through January 10, in the
Community Gallery. In the
spirit of this fall’s Season of
Portraiture, TMA invited
community members to submit original photographs to
the “Portraying Life in
Toledo” photography contest
and exhibition.
Photographs chosen capture everyday life in Greater
Toledo and feature at least
one individual. The public
voted on their favorites and
a panel selected the portraits
in the show. Scenarios range
from sporting events to family happenings, park outings
and kids being kids.
“Curator Tour, Manet:
Portraying Life,” December 7, at 7 p.m. Meet in
Libbey Court. Lawrence W.
Nichols, William Hutton
senior curator of European
and American painting and
sculpture before 1900, will
lead a tour of Manet: Portraying Life at 7 p.m. A
ticket to the exhibition is required.
“Deadly Songs: Sirens
in Greek and Romany Funerary Art,” December 7, at
7:30 p.m., in the Little Theater. Andrea Mall, associate
registrar at TMA and AIAToledo Society trustee, explores the meaning behind
Sirens depicted in funerary
art and explains how these
frightful creatures became
associated with comfort in
the afterlife. Known for luring unsuspecting sailors to
their deaths, the Sirens of
Homer’s Odyssey are described in literary sources as
creatures to be feared and
avoided. Yet ancient Greeks
and Romans chose to display
images of these beings on
their funerary monuments.
Depicted as human-headed
birds, the iconography associated with Sirens was a
popular motif appearing in a
funerary context stretching
back to the Egyptian period.
The discussion is cosponsored by the Archaeological
Institute of America-Toledo
Society.
“A Brush with Art: Textiles in Art and Decorate a
Silk Scarf,” December 14:
from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Meet in
Herrick Lobby. This month’s
free cultural program for visitors with early stage memory
loss
includes
a
discussion of textiles in art
in the TMA collection and
decorating a silk scarf.
Guided by trained docents
and volunteers, the program
is designed to foster socialization, manual dexterity and

to a rolling boil. Score an X on the flat side of each chestnut with the tip of a paring knife. Roast them on a baking
sheet in the oven or boil them, until the outer skins begins

Peel away both the outer and inner layers of skin. Chestnuts are easiest to peel while still warm; if you are experiencing difficulties, re-warm the nuts by dropping them back
into the simmering water or returning them to the warm
oven. Reserve 4-6 whole chestnuts to garnish each bowl of
soup, if desired. Chop the remaining chestnuts and set aside.
2. Heat the butter in a soup pot over medium heat.
Add the celery, carrot,
leek, and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until the
onion is light golden brown,

occasionally, until all of the
ingredients are very tender,

The Toledo Museum of
Art will introduce artworks
from the other side of the
globe to a new audience
when Crossing Cultures: The
Owen and Wagner Collection
of Contemporary Aboriginal
Australian Art from the Hood
Museum of Art goes on view
April 11 through July 14,
2013.
“Although exhibitions of
art by Indigenous Australians
have been shown on both the
East and West Coasts of the
United States, the Toledo Museum of Art is pleased to introduce these extraordinary
works for the first time to our
regional audience,” said Museum
Director
Brian
Kennedy.
Mr. Kennedy, who wrote
an essay for the exhibition
catalog, became acquainted
with Aboriginal artists while
serving as director of the National Gallery of Australia in
Canberra. He later met art
collectors Will Owen and
Harvey Wagner when he
hosted an Aboriginal art exhibition in 2006 while director
of the Hood Museum of Art
at Dartmouth College.
Crossing Cultures explores more than 100 works
of contemporary Indigenous
art from Australia spanning
five decades by artists from
desert communities as well as
major metropolitan centers.
Mr. Owen and Mr. Wagner
collected the objects and donated them to the Hood Museum of Art. Among artists
represented are Michael
Riley, Shorty Jangala Robertson, Danny Gibson Tjapaltjarri, Destiny Deacon and
Walangkura Napanangka.
Curated by Stephen
Gilchrist, curator of Indigenous Australian art at the
Hood Museum of Art, the exhibition encompasses the
broad range of media and materials employed by contemporary Aboriginal artists,
from acrylic painting on canvas to earthen ochre painting
on bark, as well as sculpture
and photography, among
other media.
“The diversity of artistic
perspectives assembled in
Crossing Cultures speaks to
the richness of the contemporary Aboriginal art tradition,
which has been called ‘the
last great art movement of the
20th century,’” said Mr.
Gilchrist. “The objects included in this exhibition reference and reinvigorate
traditional iconographies,
speak to the history and
legacy of colonization, and
meaningfully contribute to
the growing international discourse on contemporary Indigenous art.”
Art historian Henry F.
Skerritt, a contributor to the
exhibition catalog, writes that
Crossing Cultures offers “a
perfect illustration of why
Australian Aboriginal art is at
the vanguard of international
contemporary art.” He notes
in a recent blog posting that
“better than any other single
movement, Aboriginal art reveals the connective fibers
that allow us to maintain and
communicate our unique
identities in a world of accelerating differences.”
While a number of influential artists who contributed
to the development of an Indigenous art canon since the
1970s are in the exhibition,
the focus is on subsequent
generations of artists who are
breathing new life into ancient stories and broadening
the possibilities of Indigenous
Australian art. There are contemporary paintings that summon aspects of “the
Dreaming” as well as photo-
graphs from urban-based
artists who depict the contemporary realities of Indigenous
Australians.
For Indigenous Australian
peoples the Dreaming refers
to a time long ago when ancestral beings moved across
the land creating life and the
significant geographic features of the continent. Yet
Aboriginal peoples do not
conceive of the past, present
and future in progression but,
instead, as part of one whole
story. The Dreaming, then,
also means to “see and understand” today the laws and responsibilities established by
these
ancestors.
Some
Dreaming stories are communal; others are personal, but
all of the Dreaming stories
pass on knowledge, cultural
values and belief systems to
later generations.
Resonant with cultural
memory, objects in the exhibition speak to both the history and the legacy of
colonization in Australia.
The Hood Museum of Art
organized this traveling exhibition with the generous support of Kate and Yaz
Krehbiel, Class of 1991,
Thayer 1992, and Hugh J.
Freund, Class of 1967. The
exhibition is on view there
through March 10, 2013.
The Toledo showing of
Crossing Cultures is made
possible by members of the
Toledo Museum of Art and
with the support of the Ohio
Arts Council through a sustainability grant from the National Endowment for the
Arts.
Admission to the exhibition and to the Museum is
free. The companion catalog
is available for purchase
through the Museum Store
and online at toledomu
seum.org.

Perrysburg Exchange Club makes donation
to Perrysburg Area Historic Museum, Inc.
The Perrysburg Exchange Club Foundation recently presented a $2,000 check to
the Perrysburg Area Historic Museum, Inc. (PAHM) to assist with phase one renovations of the 1823 Spafford house–home of the new museum.
“Renovating and preserving a gutted 1823 historic home that has not been occupied for more than 25 years is a major task,” said Judy Justus, PAHM president, to
Exchange Club members. “Our goal is to raise $150,000, and we are at $65,000.”
The new museum will feature an 1830s keeping room, an early American kitchen,
judge’s office and research library, child’s bedroom and play area, 1830s bedroom,
military, fire and police room, old-fashioned school room, and Native American displays will be highlighted in the entrance foyer.
Donations to the museum can be sent to PAHM, P.O. 1294, Perrysburg, Ohio
43552. Or for additional information, call Mrs. Justus at 419-874-6828.

Prizm opens new art exhibit ‘Color reVision’
Prizm Creative Community is sponsoring a new collection of Art at the
Starbucks in Levis Commons, Perrysburg.
Featured art from Prizm
artists will be available for
viewing during regular business hours. The current display is called “Color
reVision.”
It features the work of
Prizm artist Janelle Lorenzen and will be on view
through January 31.
The display includes Ms.
Lorenzen’s fine art photography of landscapes and
cityscapes of the Toledo,
Ohio, area and other inspiring locations in the region.
The display includes images
of the Toledo skyline, Wildwood Metropark, Maumee
Bay State Park, the Toledo
Botanical Gardens, the
High-Level Bridge, and the
Docks, among others.
Ms. Lorenzen used several techniques throughout
the works to alter natural
colors and allow color to
play a stronger role within
the images.
Digital infrared photography is a technique she
achieved in-camera, by
using an infrared filter on
the front lens element.
The resulting infrared
photographs were long exposures, usually around 30
seconds, which contributed
to motion blur.
Infrared filtering created
an eerie, unearthly quality
and unnatural coloring.
She also used an HDR
(high dynamic range) photography technique, which
merged a number of bracketed exposures into one
image with the use of special
computer software.
This technique resulted in
saturated colors, hyper-real
contrast, and motion blur.
Lastly, Ms. Lorenzen
used false coloring, in which
the images were manipulated with photo editing soft-

Town.”
ware to create a variety of
color effects.
Ms. Lorenzen is an artist
and photographer living in
Holland, Ohio. In 2002, she
earned a bachelor of fine arts
degree in media studies with
a concentration in still-based
photography
from
the
Columbus College of Art
and Design.
Since earning her degree,
her work has mainly consisted of portrait, cityscape,
nature, landscape, and fine
art photography.
She enjoys experimenting with new photo techniques and digital processes.
In addition to fine art
photography, Ms. Lorenzen
is
currently
exploring
mixed-media painting and
encaustic art work.

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo provides Aurora Project seeks donations
Archaeological Institute of America
The Aurora Project Inc., a where women can work
to host lecture on Friday, December 7 adoption search, reunions during holiday season
non-profit agency that offers through the issues that led to
The Archaeological Institute of America, Toledo Society, will host an illustrated
lecture, “Deadly Songs;
Sirens in Greek and Roman
Art” on Friday, December 7,
at 7:30 p.m.
The lecturer is Andrea
Mall, chief registrar at the
Toledo Museum of Art.
The free illustrated lecture will be given in the Little Theatre at the Toledo
Museum of Art, 2445 Monroe Street, Toledo. The program is open to the public.
Known for luring unsuspecting sailors to their
deaths, the Sirens of
Homer’s Odyssey are described in literary sources as
creatures to be feared and
avoided. Why then would
both the ancient Greeks and
Romans choose to display
images of Sirens on their funerary monuments? Depicted as human-headed
birds, the iconography associated with Sirens was a popular motif appearing in a
funerary context stretching
back to even the Egyptian
period. The speaker explores
the meaning behind these depictions and explains how
these frightful creatures became associated with comfort in the afterlife.
This event is sponsored
by the Toledo Society, the
local chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America.
For more information,
call James Harrell at 419530-2193, or send an e-mail
to [email protected]
.edu.
During the holiday season,
those who have been part of an
adoption may think more
about finding a birth mother or
a child placed for adoption.
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo is offering
adoption search and reunion
services for adoptions completed through Catholic Charities.
Holidays often create
thoughts of family and cherished memories of the past for
many people. An adoption
search can be beneficial for all
members of the adoption triad,
which is the birth mother,
adoptee and adoptive parents,
says Peg Gehring, coordinator
of Catholic Charities Post
Adoption and Reunion Services. For example, adoptees
may find answers to lifelong
questions about medical information and birth family history. Feelings of completeness
and wholeness can become a
reality for them, she says.
“Most adoptees want to
thank their birth mother for
giving them life and then al-
lowing them to live a wonderful life through adoption,”
Gehring explains. “For birth
mothers, to hear a genuine
“thank you” from their adult
child and to learn their child
had a wonderful life brings a
sense of healing and peace. It
affirms for the birth mother
that her decision of long ago
was truly in the best interest of
her child.”
The search and reunion can
also be beneficial for adoptive
parents. When adoptive parents give their blessing, en-
couragement and support for
their child to begin a search
journey, their fear of “losing
their child” often diminishes,
said Ms. Gehring.
The parent/child relationship is often enriched with a
greater sense of appreciation
and respect.
For more information or to
begin an adoption search, send
an e-mail to Ms. Gehring at
[email protected] toledodiocese.org
or call 419-244-6711, extension 230. Fees are applicable
for the search.
new beginnings to homeless
women and their children, is
seeking donations of gift
cards, gas cards and cash donations.
Family sponsorships also
are needed.
The donations will be used
to assist Aurora House in continuing its mission of empowering homeless women and
children to achieve self sufficiency and independence.
The organization’s transitional housing program offers
a comprehensive program

parenting and life skills and
take the time they need to
make permanent, positive
changes so that they will never

work through the issues which
led to their homelessness.

Wood County Humane Society’s
PET OF THE WEEK
Ladybug: German Shepherd, black
Hello there, I'm Ladybug. I came to the humane
society from the dog warden. I was a pretty sick
girl because I tested positive for heartworm. The
lovely ladies at the shelter and my foster family
took great care of me and now I'm feeling tons
better and am almost done with my treatment!
I've been told I have quite the personality. I just
know what I want! I'd prefer to be the only dog
in your life so I don't have to share your attention. I love to go for walk and play with my toys.
If you play fetch with me I'll love you forever!
I'm very affectionate will give you kisses if you
let me. I hope you can stop out and see me!
Please visit or call the Wood County Humane Society at 419-352-7339
to learn more about this great pet. All of our adoptable animals can be
viewed by visiting www.WoodCountyHumaneSociety.org.

Roger and Pam Shoffner of Perrysburg recently celebrated

Cancun. For 10 days they enjoyed an all-inclusive vacation at
the seaside resort Riu Palace Mexico.
They were joined by longtime friends Jim and Joyce

years. “We enjoyed lots of sun, delicious food, colorful entertainment, and of course, a few pina colada's,” said Mrs.
Shoffner.

Automated Refuse and Recycling Collection Coming in 2013
Perrysburg residents will continue to have the best refuse and recycle program in the area. There will be no change in any of the city services of: unlimited weekly collection, carry
out/carry back, and alley collections.
The City is looking to implement the automated collection program for Earth Day on Monday, April 22, 2013. This gives the City time to answer citizens’ concerns and for an easy
transition. Informational public meetings will be held to explain the program, answer residents’ questions and explain the roll out of the new collection program. These meetings will be
held in City Council Chambers from 6:00 – 8:00 pm on the following dates:
• Monday, January 7, 2013
• Thursday, February 7, 2013
• Thursday, March 7, 2013
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the automated collection program will be available on the city web page www.ci.perryburg.oh.us after January 1, 2013
IMPROVED STAFF SAFETY/ECONOMIC BENEFITS
• City crews exposure to work related injuries will be reduced. This is extremely physical work and Workers Compensation Claims are high. Such things as accidental sticks from
medical syringes and chronic injuries from continual lifting of trash cans/bags and recycle bins will be greatly reduced. Exposure to traffic will be greatly reduced as the automated
arm is operated from the truck cab.
• Automated collection is a more efficient method of collection. Once trained, the average time per pickup is 8 seconds.
• Each collection truck is a one man operation which reduces the city collection staffing needs. It will reduce our staff from 9 members down to 5. This has already been accomplished
through attrition. No City employee has lost their job.
RECYCLING ECONOMIC BENEFITS
• Larger recycling Toters will enable citizens to recycle more items curbside, including cardboard.
• Automated recycle collection will be single stream which means all recycling is placed together in one container with no need to sort or separate.
• Cardboard drop-offs at 11980 Roachton Road and 211 East Boundary will be available for large cardboard items and we are contemplating expanding this to include single stream
recycling for Perrysburg residents who currently do not have convenient access to recycling.
REFUSE ECONOMICS BENEFITS
• We anticipate an increase in recycling which will result in less garbage and in turn saves landfill tipping fees for garbage. This is conservatively estimated to increase our recycling
volume by 30%.
• Lids on trash containers keep rain and snow out of the garbage. This moisture adds weight to the garbage which translates into increased landfill tipping fees caused by water weight.
LESS LITTER IN NEIGHBORHOODS ON COLLECTION DAYS
• Lids on refuse and recycle Toters prevents animals, and the wind from spreading trash around the neighborhood.
A comparison of Toter volume capacity and footprint
The new automated trucks will be operated by
one City worker from inside the truck cab,
eliminating the need to get in and out of the truck
for each location.
A Toter has more capacity than two 45 gallon trash cans or seven garbage bags.
A Toter has the same footprint as two red recycle bins
A Toter has 5 ½ times the capacity of one red recycle bin
which only holds 18 gallons
