PERRYSBURG 1935 VOLUME 162, NUMBER 47 – NOVEMBER 19, 2014 Yellow Jackets fall to Nordonia in regional semi-finals, 56-52 Perrysburg Proud...Yellow Jackets conclude the season with a record of 11-1. the 8:57 mark in the third quarter, making it 35-21. Dylan Mabin snagged a Murray touchdown pass for the Knights, cutting the Jacket lead to 35-28 with 7:10 to play in the third quarter. With Dimmerling out of the Jacket lineup due to cramping, backup quarterback Trevor Hafner stepped in and fired a 55-yard scoring strike to Thomas jumping the score to 42-28 with 2:19 to play in the third quarter. On the next possession, in the fourth quarter, Murray connected with Ward again for a 29-yard touchdown strike, cutting the lead to 4235. Dimmerling was able to stretch it out again to two scores with a two-yard touchdown run on the ensuing possession, but the Knights continued to answer. Murray connected again with Alders for a one-yard scoring pass and then running back Anthony Perrine scored on a 39-yard touchdown run, tying the game at 49 with 4:52 to play. Perrysburg was held on third and goal forcing the field goal attempt by Freeman, which he converted, giving Perrysburg the threepoint lead. But Perrysburg couldn’t pull down Alders on the kick return, as the senior receiver broke several tackles on his way to the 70-yard scoring play, giving Nordonia their first lead of the game and eventually the win. Murray, a highly touted quarterback, finished the game passing for 336 yards on 23 of 36 with six touchdowns and two interceptions. Nordonia had a balanced attack with Alders catching his 10 passes and Ward hauling in five for 112 yards. Perrine led the way on the ground with 135 yards on 18 attempts. The Knights will push on to play Midview in the regional final. Nordonia and Midview both have perfect 12-0 records. For Perrysburg, Dimmerling continued his excellence. The senior quarterback finished with 189 yards passing on 11 for 31 with three touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 211 yards on 30 attempts. Thomas led the receiving with five catches for 123 yards and two scores. The loss ends a remarkable season for the Jackets. Perrysburg became the first 10-0 undefeated regular season team since 1985, won their second straight Northern Lakes League title, hosted and won their first ever playoff game against Massillon, and ended the regular season as the AP Number 1 ranked team in the state for Division 2. 1853 PLEASE RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER ©WELCH PUBLISHING COMPANY, PERRYSBURG, OHIO, (419) 874-4491 Perrysburg Proud...Thank you for a great season! By Scott Buker The Perrysburg Yellow Jackets’ 2014 season will be looked on as one of the greatest–if not the greatest ever–in school history, 11-1. The season concluded after a 56-52 loss to the Nordonia Knights in the regional semi-finals Friday night at Cedar Point Stadium in Sandusky. It was fitting that the Jackets and Knights played at Cedar Point Stadium–it was a roller-coaster game. The Jackets claimed an early lead and never trailed until 2:07 left in the fourth quarter. Sitting at a 49-49 tie with 2:22 to play, the Jackets were facing a fourth-and-goal from the Nordonia nine-yard line. They opted to kick the 26-yard fieldgoal and kicker Scott Freeman drilled it through the uprights to put them up 52-49. But the lead didn’t last for even one defensive snap. Nordonia’s Alex Alders, who caught a game high 10 passes for 94 yards, turned in his biggest play of the game, returning the kickoff 70 yards for the game winning score. Still the Jackets had a final attempt to put together the game winning drive and push them to the furthest point in the playoffs in school history. Facing a fourth-down situation, Gus Dimmerling’s pass to Quinn Thomas was ruled incomplete, turning the ball over on downs. It was a close call on the sidelines as it appeared Thomas was able to haul the pass inbounds. Never the less, the call stood and the Knights ran out the remaining time on the clock. Perrysburg built a 14-0 lead early in the opening quarter. Dimmerling found Thomas on a 23-yard scoring pass and then found Cole McClary for a 13-yard strike putting the Jackets on top with 6:06 to play in the first quarter. Nordonia quarterback David Murray answered, finding Alders for the Knights’ first scoring play of the game, this one on a fiveyard scoring reception. For Murray, it was his first of six touchdown passes. Dimmerling responded with a seven-yard scoring run with 5:13 to play in the second quarter making the score 21-7. But two more touchdown passes from Murray–one to Denzel War and another to Alders–tied the game at 21 with 2:41 left. The Jackets took a 28-21 halftime lead when Dimmerling scored on a 12-yard touchdown run with 1:08 to go. Perrysburg regained a two score lead when Freeman caught a four-yard scoring pass from Dimmerling at YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER Perrysburg touchdown by Quinn Thomas.

He replaces Dave Deskins, who left in August to become superintendent at Green County Career Center. Mr. Ewers expressed his appreciation to the board for the opportunity. “I’m very much looking forward to serving students who attend Penta,” he said. The assistant superintendent comes to the career center from Edon Northwest Local School District where he has served as superintendent since 2011. Prior to his tenure at Edon, he served as principal at Montpelier Junior and Senior High School for 11 years. He also worked as a teacher and coach at Montpelier for five years. Mr. Ewers graduated from the University of Findlay in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in education and earned a mas- ter’s in educational administration and supervision in 2000 from Bowling Green State University. The board awarded him a three-year contract at an annual salary of $102,804. He will begin his duties on January 5. Judy Sander Superintendent Ron Matter recognized board member Judy Sander of Genoa for her years of service. Mrs. Sander, who also serves on the board of the North Point Educational Service Center, received a Veteran Board Member award at the 59th annual Ohio School Boards Association conference on November 12. The award is given to school board members with 25 Please turn to page 3➧ Penta to upgrade campus with energy efficient lighting An $800,000 energy retrofit project is being planned for Penta Career Center. At the November 5 meeting, the board of education discussed the project, which calls for changing all interior and exterior lighting to energy efficient LED bulbs. Rich Birt, supervisor of operations, said carbon dioxide sensors also will be installed. The sensors detect when there is an occupant in the room, activating lighting and temperature controls to the comfort level. Superintendent Ron Matter said the district has been looking at the electrical upgrade for more than a year but wanted to make sure the project would be feasible. “The technology is there, and the prices have come down,” he added. The scope of the work entails: •Career center–retrofit exterior and interior lighting to LED, replace 17 lighting control panels, install 238 occupancy sensors, retrofit greenhouse lighting, add greenhouse lights to the building automated system and add electric meter for energy monitoring; •Operations building– retrofit exterior and interior lighting to LED; replace one lighting control panel; add electric meter for energy monitoring and update the building automated system; •Maumee career-based intervention facility–retrofit interior and exterior lighting, add a building automated system. Penta officials expect to receive a First Energy rebate for the operations building of $2,900 and are projecting an annual energy and maintenance savings of $118,992. The district should begin to see a payback from the project in 6.7 years, said Mr. Matter. Retrofitting will begin in January in the operations building, and work on the career center is expected to take place next summer with a completion date of August 1, 2015. –Jane Maiolo Dynamic Toledo Schools superintendent shares students’ success, district gains with chamber By Beth Church Dr. Romules Durant, Toledo Public Schools superintendent, understands that many of his students aspire to be the next Dr. Dre or Dr. Julius Irving. But instead, he encourages them to pursue other career paths. “Every one of you have the opportunity to achieve a doctorate or a juris doctor or an educational doctorate,” he said. Displaying his dynamic personality and passion for helping students, Dr. Durant was the guest speaker at the October luncheon meeting of the Perrysburg Area Chamber of Commerce. “I am TPS proud,” said the 1994 Waite High School graduate, wearing a dress shirt with “TPS” monogrammed on the collar. He admitted to receiving a Facebook message from the mother of a young Toledo student who had used a marker to write “TPS” on his own shirt. “She wasn’t upset,” he said with a laugh. “She told me, ‘thank you for tapping into the mind of my child.’” Dr. Durant would prefer to see students proudly wearing the TPS logo, instead of tattoos from gangs or housing developments on their necks and forearms. “What this represents is bigger than a housing development,” he said. “Let education take you beyond a zip code.” The young superintendent received a bachelor of Dr. Romules Durant, second from left, spoke at the recent meeting of the Perrysburg Area Chamber of Commerce. With him, from left are: Perrysburg Schools Superintendent Tom Hossler, Chamber board president Debbie Paul and Matt Feasel, chamber board member and Perrysburg Schools treasurer. education degree in 1998, a master of education degree in 2002, and a doctorate degree in educational administration and supervision in 2007, all from the University of Toledo. He has spent the past 14 years working for Toledo Public Schools as a teacher, administrator, assistant superintendent and now superintendent. As a football player at Waite and UT, he admired that former coaches Gary Pinkel and Nick Saban operated their football programs like Fortune 500 companies. “They had a core mission and values that they put into effect in everyday life–to generate a different culture,” he added. Emulating that philosophy, Dr. Durant has made many “data-driven” decisions for the school district. One he is most proud of is the move to convert school buildings to include kindergarten through eighth grade. Within two years, school officials witnessed a 70 percent increase in parental involvement for middle school students. And grades 6 to 8, which had the largest number of suspensions, dropped to the fewest. “With the change in dynamics of the building, we realized learning is happening,” he said. He pointed out the benefit to the eighth grade student remaining in daily contact with his favorite teacher from kindergarten, who continues to hold him accountable. Another weak area for students’s progress was the transition from eighth grade to the freshman year.

At the November 11 meeting, Neil Munger, Wood County park district director, reviewed the operating portion of the 2015 budget for the park board of commissioners. One of the biggest changes in cost will be to employee health care coverage. Employees and the park district will pay more next year. “Everything went up,” said Mr. Munger. He attributed the higher costs to a number of factors including an increase in catastrophic claims with Wood County, which the park district is affiliated, as well as the federal Affordable Care Act. Premiums for health/Rx, vision, dental and life for single employees will increase by $19.84 over the $74.32, they paid in 2014. The park district’s portion will jump by $112.91 to $541.76. For the family plan, employees will pay $244.82 in 2015, a jump of $66.42, and the park district will pay an additional $346.99 or $1,395.56. The spousal premium also increases to $627.80 from $545.94 in 2014. Next year ’s operating budget also includes merit increases adopted by the park commissioners. Based on employee performance, increases have been set at 4 percent for excellent employment, 3 percent for employees exceeding the satisfactory level and 2 percent for those performing satisfactorily. “This is in keeping with last year,” Mr. Munger said. At the request of the commissioners, the director also added in the cost for a trail/traffic counter to monitor the number of visitors using the parks. Commissioner Mary Krueger, who walks the trails frequently, asked about the accuracy of the counter for those who make multiple loops on a trail. Assistant director Jeff Baney acknowledged that it will be “hard to quantify usage” of the trails since walkers and bicyclists may use trails multiple times during a single visit, but he believes the counter will still provide a good estimate of park usage. The operating budget also includes one additional employee for the Carter Historic Farm and two seasonal employees. Mr. Munger hopes to obtain interns for the seasonal positions. He plans to have the final budget to the commissioners for their approval in December. Other Business In other business, the commissioners: •Approved closing park district offices on Friday, November 28 due to the Thanksgiving holiday, and also agreed, in keeping with Wood County, to make the day a paid holiday. The park office typically closes the Friday after Thanksgiving, but it has not been a paid holiday, explained Mr. Munger. He said the county made the day a paid holiday and noted that the park district traditionally “mimics” their policy. The park director noted that it only applies to 2015 and the board needs to vote on the policy annually. Essential personnel such as rangers who work that day will be paid time and a half, he added. •Heard from Mr. Munger that employees are in the process of completing a survey on the park district. “The surveys are due before Thanksgiving,” he added. •Agreed to install security camera upgrades at Otsego Park by Torrance Sound of Toledo at a cost of $6,549. “We have funds in the budget, and they’re a good deterrent,” said Mr. Munger, adding that rangers view the footage whenever vandalism or other suspicious activities occur at the park. •Announced that language revisions requested by the commissioners have been made to the employee manual. •Heard from the Friends of the Wood County Parks District that the group continues to meet with officials from WBGU public broadcasting station in Bowling Green regarding a story on the park district. The next park district meeting will be at 3 p.m., Tuesday, December 9, at district headquarters, 18729 Mercer Road, Bowling Green, and is open to the public. –Jane Maiolo Page 2 — November 19, 2014 — PERRYSBURG MESSENGER JOURNAL hello healthy MEDICARE ADVANTAGE Say hello to HealthSpan.

Toledo Schools superintendent shares students’ success ➧Continued from page 1 “Kids who had a bad start as freshmen, by their sophomore and junior years, they were on a downward slope,” the superintendent explained. “So we started freshman-only days of classes where we walked each student to their lockers and their classes, and in to meet each teacher and coach.” Some teachers now only teach freshman students and meet weekly with parents. One result has been only 15 behavioral referrals from the six high schools–and “it used to be in the hundreds,” he acknowledged. Dr. Durant also is proud of the success of TPS elementary schools divided by gender. Classes with all-boys or all-girls have boosted academics, he said, but “constructive interaction” among the children takes place, such as ballroom dancing, chess club and debate team. “It’s a more uplifting environment,” he said. “They’re not tearing each other down.” In regard to the state report card for TPS, the superintendent told chamber members that the district went from a grade of F to A in the category measuring growth in learning. He also mentioned the A the district received for special education, adding that 5,000 of the 23,000 TPS students have an individualized education plan (IEP). Many special education students were placed back in regular classrooms with their peer groups, where “they’re not isolated in a room where the level of expectations is low.” “They feel good among their peers, with teachers coming to them to help.” For gifted students, TPS has a number of programs available, he said. For fifth and sixth graders, they can take music and orchestra classes early in the morning with a bus ride available to the music center. Seventh and eighth grade students have the option of riding the bus to a nearby high school to take high school level courses. “In seventh grade, a child begins to see the longitudinal vision–to take college classes and earn credit early.” Dr. Durant also has emphasized career technical opportunities for students, American Legion Post 28 Presents its Annual Feather Party Bingo • Turkeys & Hams Prizes • Fun • Raffles Food & Beverages American Legion Post 28 Schaller Memorial Building 130 West Indiana Avenue Perrysburg and he described a problem that has been corrected with the program. One TPS student who excelled in tool and die classes obtained two patents for his work. However, he would not enroll in the career technical program because it did not allow him to take AP classes. And without AP classes, which have weighted grades, his GPA would not have been competitive with other students. “You have to encourage the brightest minds in the most technical aspects,” Dr. Durant said. TPS also has broadened its distance learning opportunities. For instance, all high schools students who want to take Latin classes are taught by a weblink to a teacher at Start High School. Other foreign language and AP classes are open to students through distance learning, he said. The superintendent addressed the district’s grade of F for its graduation rate, which he said is actually limited to a small percentage of students. There is a group of students absent for 20 to 30 days, and “we don’t know where they’re at.” “Maybe there are 30 of them at a high school,” he explained. “But otherwise, we have a 90 percent graduation rate.” In regard to the severely truant students, he said, “I told our team, we have to find them,” and even suggested hiring a private investigator to locate them. Dr. Durant also has concentrated on making sure Toledo youngsters are ready to attend school–from the very first day of kindergarten. “We need intensive intervention before they even N get started,” he said. Problems such as drug addiction, nicotine use, nutrition and more are affecting children between birth and age 3–“and only a certain percentage will succeed.” “It starts at birth, if you want to address education,” he explained. “Between birth and age 3, what is instilled between those ages is life-sustaining.” By age 3, children’s neurological systems are welldeveloped, the superintendent said. “You can imagine what is in the mind of a child who is exposed to the most hostile environment,” he added. He cited the case of a family with a 3-year-old, N kindergartner and first grader who already have cataracts in their eyes. “By second or third grade, we realize that child is blind,” he said. “And the last time they were at the doctor was at their birth. They went five or six years without a doctor’s care.” Dr. Durant has coordinated physicians’ visits to the schools, and worked with Toledo churches to “put the talents in their congregations to use for our schools.” “We need to address these needs when time matters,” he noted.

But should there be a repeat of last year, ODOT officials are ready and able. “It’s a mental exercise. Obviously you lose endurance over the year. But at least we’re mentally prepared that if it’s going to be as bad as last year, we know we’re going to get through it,” said Todd Audet, deputy director. “Nobody likes it, but everybody’s signed on for it.” and the truck back out on the next shift. “We went to dump it out and it’s just like this big, frozen block of salt,” Mr. Audet recalled. “I’ve never seen anything like that. It was that cold.” That intense cold often proved more troublesome in clearing the roads than the record snowfall. “Salt doesn’t work in the extreme cold, so we’d have to chemically treat the salt with calcium chloride,” explained public information officer Theresa Pollick. “It just takes longer for the salt to activate. Temperatures like Plow drivers frequently worked 12-hour shifts last winter to keep up with the snow and unrelenting blowing and drifting that seemed to follow every storm. Mr. Audet noted many plow drivers logged twice as many hours last year as tthe year prior, which happened to be one of the mildest winters in recent memory. Conditions last winter were so raw that at one point a driver returned to the Technology Drive garage in Maumee when the salt in his truck froze to a solid block.

The winter contract is $105 a ton.” Despite the spike on the commodities market for salt, Mr. Audet said there was never a consideration to adopt a practice that some snowier parts of the country use. “We talked to areas that do 80 to 120 inches of snow normally and in some areas they don’t even put salt on the roads,” he said. “They just plow the roads and wonder why we do what we do. Well, we [salt] because there’s an expectation in this part of the country that we use salt and keep the roads snow and ice free.” What will be different is handling the elements through a litany of construction zones, many of which are still active. Ms. Pollick said drivers are prepared to navigate and clear those areas of snow and ice. “What we have done is taken the plows through and said, ‘Okay, this is where we can fit, and this is what we’re going to do to go through each and every single work zone and how we’re going to manage the snow,’” she explained. “We can do all the preemptive work that we can. But until we actually get through the storm, based on wind conditions, everything’s going to be different. People–when they go through them–have to reduce their speed.” Regardless of what winter has in store, ODOT officials are confident in their ability to make drivers’ commutes as clear and safe as possible. “Obviously, a repeat of last year is on everybody’s mind, not only ODOT’s. But really, this is our signature service. This is what we do,” said Ms. Pollick. “It’s just one of those things where we’re constantly maintaining and doing. I don’t think there’s something we’re really concerned about. This is something we do every year.” “We expect the worst and deal with it storm by storm, like we always do.” To keep abreast of the latest weather conditions on state roads this winter visit the www.ohgo.com.

Dear Editor: I would like to make special mention of the Perrysburg High School girls cross country team, who under Head Coach Jon Monheim, and Assistant Coach Ed Osborne capped a second straight season as Northern Lakes League Champions as well as fifth overall in the state. Coach Monheim is building a special program at Perrysburg. As a parent of a graduating senior, who ran all four years in the program, I can attest to his inspiring affect on the girls. My daughter signed up freshman year for a Fall activity. While never a regular varsity runner, she leaves the program with a fitness mindset and an avid runner. Coach Monheim has found the balance between creating healthy competition and mentoring students toward healthy lifestyles as well as building confidence through persevering. Go Jackets–and continued success for the program. Chris Farrar Trendy new destination Journey into Point Place, a trendy new destination with a small town feel.

D This ODOT storage shed in Maumee is stocked with rock salt for the upcoming winter. that held for days to where we couldn’t even treat because it wouldn’t be worth it financially. So we just had to plow and plow.” One thing that proved especially beneficial in battling the brutal elements was the new Maumee facility–one ODOT moved into only months before winter’s onslaught. The expansive garages, truck wash and advanced, efficient brine production system paid big dividends, allowing for better maintenance and deployment of plow trucks. “Having a facility like this, we can keep [trucks] in here and drivers can do their own limited technical inspections. And if there’s anything wrong, we can work on them [on site],” said Mr. Audet. “This is a very effective facility for maintaining the fleet.” The larger garage with more than twice the salt capacity of the old one was equally essential. The new location helped as well by providing plow drivers with quick, easy access to main arteries such as I-475 and U.S. Route 24. “It was amazing,” Ms. Pollick said. “First of all, it was just an accomplishment to get it out here because when we were at our old facility on Detroit Avenue, to get anywhere would take us 20 minutes. To have that time for our trucks to get salt, to get everything, was nice.” One precautionary measure ODOT took was to purchase roughly 6,700 tons currently in the salt stores on a much cheaper summer contract. Ms. Pollick said officials anticipated a jump in prices following last winter. “If you noticed our salt shed out there, it is stacked because we bought the bulk of our salt on the summer contract because we could get it for $54 a ton,” she said. “When that runs out, we’ll Letter to the Editor IBLING FLOOR COVERING WINDOW TREATMENTS WALL COVERINGS Serving the area since 1950 Dibling Floor & Interiors 321 Conant Street, Maumee 419-893-3256 • diblingfloorcovering.com Hrs: Mon.-Fri.: 10-5:30, Sat: 10-3 Free Smoke Alarm Installs Taxing District Henry Twp North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore North Baltimore Lake Twp Parcel Number F22-310-340000001000 F23-310-260318017000 F23-310-260320017000 F23-310-260320018000 F23-310-350102006000 F23-310-350103026000 F23-310-350103027000 F23-310-350103028000 F23-310-350103029000 F23-310-350103030000 F23-310-350103031000 F23-310-350103032000 F23-310-350103033000 F23-310-350103034000 F23-310-350103035000 F23-310-350103036000 H28-712-030101019000 Location 0 Mitchell 0 Broadway 0 Central Ave 0 Central Ave 110 N Third St 587 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Broadway 0 Plumey Legal Description Total Value T STRIP OFF NE NE N OF B & 4,900.00 835.92 INLOT 187 6,200.00 1,075.88 INLOT 505 8,400.00 885.20 INLOT 506 8,400.00 1,901.44 INLOT 95 16,100.00 4,320.45 INLOT 357 93,900.00 150,883.98 INLOT 356 5,400.00 1,072.95 15' ALLEY W OF LOT 356 1,400.00 292.32 INLOT 355 5,400.00 1,072.95 INLOT 354 5,200.00 1,033.83 INLOT 353 4,800.00 972.54 INLOT 352 LESS RR & E7 1/2 VAC ALLEY 5,000.00 1,011.63 INLOT 351 LESS RR & W7 1/2 VAC ALLEY 3,700.00 758.87 INLOT 350 LESS RR & 1/2 VAC ALLEY 2,000.00 422.90 INLOT 349 NEPT 3,100.00 634.84 INLOT 349 LESS NEPT 2,900.00 608.38 DOUGLAS FARM ADD'N LOT NO 85 E50' W250' S150 (PARCEL I) 5,400.00 581.87 Lake Twp H28-712-030101020000 3309 Plumey DOUGLAS FARM ADD'N LOT NO 85 E49.38' S150' (PARCEL J) 5,400.00 586.28 Lake Twp H28-712-030201006000 3700 Williston Rd W15A E36.96A NPT E OF PLK RD LESS PTS 319,900.00 217,995.67 Middleton Twp J36-611-210301017000 10990 Middleton Pk DUNBRIDGE INLOT 22 E25'8" 1,600.00 135.38 Haskins J39-610-220001074001 0 Earl North Dr LOGAN MEADOWS PLAT 3 LOT A 300.00 41.84 Northwood M50-300-130408009000 2214 Sheffield PL HOMECRAFT INLOT 173 8,100.00 1,117.87 Perrysburg Twp P60-400-180307029000 0 Washington PERRYSBURG HEIGHTS INLOT 397 2,500.00 332.74 Perrysburg Twp P60-400-180307030000 0 Washington PERRYSBURG HEIGHTS INLOT 396 2,500.00 332.74 Perrysburg Twp P60-400-180405023000 0 Linclon St PERRYSBURG HEIGHTS INLOT 691 2,500.00 458.50 Perrysburg Twp P60-400-180405024000 12490 Lincoln St PERRYSBURG HEIGHTS INLOT 690 2,500.00 10,252.80 Perrysburg Twp P60-400-180405025000 0 Linclon St PERRYSBURG HEIGHTS INLOT 689 2,500.00 458.50 If the tract, lot, or part of lot, so forfeited, is sold for any amount that is less than the amount of 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 corporations’ stock.

Amy McMahon Sherman receives INSA Homeland Security award Intelligence Specialist Second Class Tyler Sherman of the U.S. Coast Guard has been named the 2014 recipient of the John W. Warner Homeland Security Award by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA). This is part of the INSA Achievement Awards program, which recognizes rising leaders and mentors within the intelligence community from government, industry and academia. He was one of six award recipients selected from dozens of nominations submitted by senior leaders and managers across the Intelligence Community. The selections were made by the INSA Achievement Awards Selection Committee, which is comprised of members from INSA’s leadership and Intelligence Champions Council. The awards were presented at the fifth annual INSA Achievement Awards dinner held November 13, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C. IS2 Tyler Sherman is a 2004 graduate of Perrysburg High School. As the sole intelligence professional assigned to Air Station Sacramento, he had a significant and direct impact on the country’s overall efforts to stem the flow of illegal narcotics. His analysis informed operations by providing real-time tactical intelligence to the station’s operational commanders. IS2 Sherman also took the initiative to plan and execute networked intelligence briefings that helped paint accurate pictures of relevant surface assets and air contacts for related interagency missions. He further engaged with multiple federal agencies, including the U.S. Navy, Customs and Border Protection, and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, to enhance intelli- IS2 Tyler Sherman gence assessments that have proved instrumental to law enforcement and intelligence operations along the West Coast and U.S.-Mexico border. “The INSA Achievement Awards offer a unique distinction by recognizing outstanding members of the intelligence and national security workforce who have much of their careers still ahead of them. It is our pleasure to honor this group of future leaders and mentors. We hope the award recipients and their friends, family and colleagues enjoy what has become a signature INSA event,” said INSA President Ambassador Joseph DeTrani. The INSA Board of Directors established the INSA Achievement Awards in 2010 to recognize mid-level professionals who have demonstrated leadership and mentorship qualities while serving the intelligence and national security mission. The six awards are named each after a recipient of the William Oliver Baker Award, which INSA presents annually to an individual for sustained excellence in their contribution to national security affairs over a considerable period of time.

He then uses inks printed on aluminum as the medium in which display his work further enhancing the rich colors and depth. Many of his works are multiple image panoramas stitched together, delivering exceptional detail and scale. Thomas Sanders is a self taught fine art photographer living in Bowling Green.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Battle of New Orleans is famously known to have been fought after the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, but before word of the Treaty had reached the combatants. Despite its providing that "All territory, places and possessions whatsoever taken by either party from the other ... after the signing of this Treaty ... shall be restored without delay,” it is likely that had they won the battle the British would have held New Orleans, asserting their right to occupy the city until claims based on undertakings the United States had given in previous agreements were satisfied. Such claims had been raised, but were left unresolved, in the Ghent negotiations. But with New Orleans’ capture, together with a new situational awareness of previously ignored Canadian interests and Canadian military successes in the northwest, the British government would have had both the bargaining leverage and the incentive to achieve, by negotiated settlement, a different outcome of the War of 1812. Mr. Melhorn’s “what if” question is thus a vehicle for discovering history that has been passed over in familiar recountings. What were the undertakings the British claimed the U.S. had not made good on, and were those claims justified? What were the Canadian interests and Canadian military successes in the northwest, of which no account was taken in the Ghent negotiations? And why should we, or our British or Canadian friends, care about any such matters? A Toledo lawyer, Mr. Melhorn, “practices history without a license” as a sometime author, lecturer and teacher. The program is sponsored by the Anderton Bentley Fund in memory of Christopher Perky, who served at Fort Meigs during the War of 1812.

Sponsored by the Exchange Club, the essay contest asks fifth-grade students to write on “Patriotism, the American Flag and Veterans Day–What this all means to me as a young American today.” One winning essay was chosen from each elementary school and St. Rose. Each of the five winners received a plaque and monetary award. Award winners, their families and school principal were guests at the Exchange Club’s dinner meeting on November 10. Award Winning Essays America the Beautiful By Martin Beredo St. Rose As I was writing this essay, I got stumped. I tried to think of new ideas and just couldn’t. Then I realized for a topic so great and important I couldn’t just write from my head, I had to write from my heart. When I realized that you had to write from the heart I also realized that I had to write from a heart of red, white and blue. We wouldn’'t have these famous colors without our flag. The colors on the flag all mean different things. Red means hardness and valor. White means purity and innocence, and blue means vigilance, perseverance and justice. These colors and their meaning perfectly describe America. We are valiant in surviving all of the wars that we have fought. We are pure, and try to control our power without hurting people. We also try to give justice to all people. Our flag also tells a story about our states and colonies. Our flag is perfect for our country and will always be. As I look out my window, I see the country that we all love so very much. It is then that I realize that all of this greatness comes with great suffering, loss and bravery. As I look out my window, I remember the armed forces. My Great Grandpa Ralph served in World War II. He was a volunteer for the Marines and was stationed on the island of Guam. For his generation it was very important to serve. Still I cannot imagine the bravery it would take to risk your life in war. But to volunteer! He was brave, and still served, even though he knew firsthand the fates of some that serve. The sacrifice that some people and their families make is astronomical. We must honor that sacrifice. So taking Veterans Day seriously is not just an option, it is a responsibility. People who have served in the armed forces set a perfect example of true patriotism. Patriotism is all about loving our country and if you love your country enough to die for it, you must be a true patriot. We all don’t have to join the army to be patriots, though. We can show it other ways, every day. We can show it by singing patriotic songs such as, “The Star Spangled Banner,” “My Country Tis of Thee,” and “America the Beautiful.” You can vote, or you can even give suggestions at your local city council meeting. If you want to do something more fun, you can go to the Fourth of July Fireworks, and remember that they symbolize all the hardships that our country and citizens have gone through. If you want to show love for your country, don’t hold it inside, go show it! America, America. What a great country we are. We have patriotic citizens. We have loyal fighters. We have the famous stars and stripes that make up our flag. America the beautiful, to some it might only be a song, but I say the phrase The Perrysburg Exchange Club recently recognized the winners of the club’s annual Patriotism Essay Contest. Each student received a plaque and a monetary award for their winning essays.

America the Beautiful Veterans Day By Olivia Bogdanski Frank School I have wondered what my grandfather had felt as he was standing on the cold hard field. My grandfather was tasting the putrid dust as he was waiting to seek victory. My grandfather had served in the Vietnam war, but thankfully he had made it out alive and he still is here today. Veterans Day is to celebrate all of the outstanding people that has served all around the nation and one of those people was my grandfather. I will tell you the true meaning of Veterans Day and how we honor the people. The true meaning of Veterans Day is to celebrate everyone that has served around the nation. Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11th. Congress had moved it in 1971, but then in 1975 they had reversed it back to the right date. Veterans Day became a national holiday in 1954. Also, many people honor this day by doing parades and giving speeches. This means that Veterans Day is so special people take off their time to go to the parades and go to the events. There are also many songs for Veterans Day like America the Beautiful, and In Flanders Field. That is the very true meaning of Veterans Day. The American Flag symbolizes blue for loyalty, red for strength and bravery, and white is for honesty and fairness. The American Flag is one of the American symbols seen most often like in classrooms, courtrooms, flag poles, Mount Everest, The North Pole, and even the moon! As you can see the American Flag is in a lot of places. The thirteen stripes represent the thirteen original colonies, and the fifty stars represent the fifty states of America. The Pledge of Allegiance is said to the flag as an oath of respect to America. The flag is also called “Old Glory” or the “Stars and Stripes.” That is what the American Flag is all about. The things that we can do to show respect is if you ever see a soldier you could say thank you for your service. People celebrate by doing patriotic parades. People show their patriotism by doing something everyday to honor the soldiers. You can also say Pledge of Allegiance every single day to show and give respect to all of our soldiers. We can also show our love by honoring the soldiers and respecting them, and also you can even greet them. I feel proud of everyone that has served our country when I see all of the patriotic things everywhere. That is all of the pa- triotism that people everywhere can do. So overall, Veterans Day is to honor all the people that has served all around the nation. They also have the American Flag which means loyalty, strength and bravery, and honesty and fairness. Also, we have patriotism which means we show our respect to all of our soldiers and we honor them. So Veterans Day, the American Flag, and patriotism are all very important to our world, and our community. Veterans Day By Autumn Oesterle Fort Meigs School Hi, my name is Autumn Oesterle and I’m from Mrs. Boden’s home room. When I was little I used to think that Veterans Day was a plain old day when my school would hold an assembly, play nice music and all these strangers dressed up would come for a breakfast, and watch the assembly. But as I got older, I grew to understand the real meaning of Veterans Day. Veterans Day isn’t just a day to hang the American Flag, or play the music “America the Beautiful.” I mean sure that’s a part of it, but that’s not even a tenth of it. Veterans Day is the day to celebrate the living and dead people who fought for our country, otherwise known as Veterans. There was once a holiday called Armistice Day that only celebrated the dead Veterans, but in 1945, and World War II Veteran Raymond Weeks thought along with celebrating the dead Veterans, that we should also celebrate the live Veterans too. The first celebration was in 1947 in Alabama led by Weeks. U.S. Representative Ed Rees presented a bill establishing the holiday through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower signed the bill into law on May 26, 1954. Congress amended this act on June 1, 1954 replacing “Armistice” with “Veterans” and has been known ever since. Later in 1982, President Reagan honored Weeks with the Presidential Citizenship Medal as the driving force for the national holiday. One of my favorite parts of Veterans Day is the fact that almost everybody hangs up the American Flag. Everything on the American Flag means something, and I like that. I mean why would we just hang up the American Flag if it didn’t mean something? The American Flag consists of thirteen stripes that stand for the first thirteen colonies. The fifty stars stand for our fifty states. And those colors stand for so much. Red stands for valor and bravery. White stands for purity and innocence. And Blue stands for perseverance, and justice. Those colors were carefully chosen for America, and I believe that everything those colors mean, are what is inside our Veterans today. And oh Patriotism, I don’t think I understand it fully yet, but what I do know is that Patriotism means your love for your country. Patriotism also means National loyalty to the Veterans that serve your country, it means to stay by your country, and to fight for what’s right. It also stands for the love that people feel for our country. One example of Patriotism is the Statue Of Liberty, it stands for freedom. Patriotism is very important, what it stands for is very meaningful. You might be wondering how Patriotism fits in with Veterans Day, well, just look at the Veterans surrounding us, they showed great Patriotism when they went and fought for our country. That’s showing an act of standing by your country and showing love for our country. I’m so honored to have so many people fight for our country today. My dad was a Submarine Officer in the Navy and I’m proud of him for working to fight for our country! I’m glad there are people fighting for our country because, if there weren’t Veterans fighting for us today, where would we be?! I would like to thank every Veteran that came today, and every Veteran in America, you are a big part of what has formed our country! Thank you for fighting for our rights. Happy Veterans Day! American Spirit By Lauren Sandberg Woodland School The American Flag. It has been through many things, survived many wars, and is the star of our National Anthem. It makes me feel proud when I look at it. It reminds me of all the things that our country has went through, from creating the 13 colonies to inventing the IPhone. It makes me think of the people who have served our country. This flag is very important to me, because it isn’t just another flag, it represents the United States, and us, the people who live there. Veterans Day is special to me because on that day, everyone celebrates the people fighting in the armed forces for us, and the ones that have served their time. It makes me think of all the people that have died trying to serve and help our country. That makes me feel proud, that we have people in the USA who would risk their lives in order to fight for Americans and our country. To me, Patriotism means loving your country, defending it and supporting it. It means being loyal to your culture and country no matter what. Celebrating Veterans Day is patriotism. Singing the national anthem is patriotism. Saying the pledge at the morning of the school day is patriotism. Patriotism isn’t just living in the US and celebrating the holidays. It is much more than that. Patriotism is believing in your country and supporting it, defending it, and loving it. It is pure love for your country and culture. Patriotism Essay By Alexia Soliz Toth School We stand high with our hands on our hearts and love in our souls. They stand high with bravery in their eyes and patriotism made permanently a part of them. Together we stand as one nation. One civilization. One united country. You might ask, what is patriotism? It is a feeling of pride for one person’s country. Kids show patriotism everyday by saying the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of every school day. On the Fourth of July my family sets off fireworks. So, how do you show patriotism? The American flag plays a big part in what makes our country America. The American flag has always and always will be the symbol for our country. Everything about the American flag means something. The red, white and blue are colors of love, hope and truth. The 13 red and white stripes represent 13 colonies. The 50 white stars represent 50 states. Whenever I see a flag fly high it reminds me of my mother, father and Uncles Scott and Marco because they all served in the Armed Forces and showed their patriotism strongly and bravely. After all, the red, white and blue are all colors of the hope and truth. Veteran’s day is one of the most special holidays in the year. It is on exactly November 11th. That day is to give recognition and appreciation to all the men and women who have served in the military. Frequently and forever, I ask my mom about her experience. One time she even had a scorpion on her shoulder and didn’t even know it! Love flies through the air on the Fourth of July. Hope flies through the air when a flag flies high. And on the Fourth of July you can hear the veterans sing, God Bless America and the Patriotism I bring. The Veterans, American flag, and patriotism have gotten this country through some tough times such as World War 1 and 2. Love has helped a great deal too. Always remember, Love everyone and times of war will be over. PERRYSBURG MESSENGER JOURNAL — November 19, 2014 — Page 9 Tree lighting ceremony to kick off holiday season at Levis Commons November 22 The Town Center at Levis Commons invites the community to the 10th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. The evening will get under way with the arrival of Santa at 6 p.m. Following his grand entrance, Santa will be available for visits until 9 p.m. in his house on the boulevard. Families can bring a camera to take their own pictures with Santa. •Horse-drawn carriage rides will return for the season. Rides are available from 6 to 9 p.m., and pickup is located on Chappel Drive near Schakolad Chocolate Factory. The cost is $5 per person or $10 per family. In the spirit of giving, attendees of the tree lighting are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Lucas County Children Services “Give the Best Gift Ever” campaign. From dolls to puzzles, footballs and gift cards, community support helps to provide gifts for children ages birth to 18 years old living under the LCCS supervision. The agency is in particular need of gifts for children newborn to age 3, and gift cards for teenagers. Once Santa has arrived and the carriage rides have begun, the performances on the main stage will begin. At 7 p.m. dancers from Julie’s Dance Studio will take the stage to perform scenes from the “Nutcracker All Jazzed Up.” From elaborate costumes to carefully choreographed routines, Julie’s Dance Studio has been an instrumental part of the tree lighting ceremony since the first event 10 years ago. At 7:45 p.m., rising Nashville star Caroline Williams will take the stage to perform her newly released single, “Home for the Holidays.” At 17 years young, Ms. Williams has a voice beyond her years. Growing up in the backwoods just outside of Nashville, as the daughter of a musician and a writer, Ms. Williams has been inspired by the world around her. She just finished her first album “Beautiful Day,” and her music recently was featured in a national Subaru commercial. While she enjoys being a musician, she is truly an allaround creative singer, writer, photographer and dancer. Ms. Williams is the voice behind the brand new Levis Commons theme-song “Your Everyday Getaway” and will sing that during the tree lighting as well. At 8 p.m., the crowd will come together for an exciting countdown to bring more than 150,000 lights to life on the 50-foot tree. The Levis Commons Tree Lighting Ceremony is a night for family and friends to gather and make special holiday memories.

Ornament recalls St. Rose cemetery 150th anniversary Remembering loved ones, St. Rose Catholic Church has created an “ornament of reflection” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the parish cemetery. “The St. Rose Parish community continues to remember and pray for our loved ones who have passed away,” said Carol Warnimont, a member of the cemetery advisory board. The St. Rose Cemetery on Avenue Road was established in 1865. Over the next seven years, Father Charles Griss purchased seven acres at the site. In 1951, Father Charles Comte bought another five acres extending the cemetery farther east. New Stations of the Cross were installed there in 2011. Marking the 150th anniversary in 2015, the parish formed a committee to recall the history of those buried at the cemetery. The theme of the anniversary is: “When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.” Mrs. Warnimont noted that many community members are not aware of the parish cemetery, perhaps because it is not located adja- and Mrs. Warnimont. They decided to have a glass engraved Christmas ornament created for the anniversary. “It’s a nice way to remember family members,” she added. Parishioner Dave Empie of All Star Trophie designed the ornament. It features the Risen Christ statue that stands behind the altar at the cemetery, where Mass is celebrated several times each year. Ornaments are $20 and will be sold after Masses on the weekends of November 22-23 and 29-30. The anniversary committee is planning several events for next year, including a cemetery walk and Rosary at dusk.

THE ONLY THING WE’RE SAYING “NO” TO THIS MONTH IS A HIGH CAR PAYMENT! $ LEASE FOR ONLY Card of Thanks We would like to thank the entire community for their support as we cheered on our football team. The momentum as the season progressed was amazing to watch. The students worked painting signs to decorate the commons with teachers’ guidance until the end. Parents were out in full force lining our streets that defined our community as Jacket Country. The store-front windows proved that we are united. A special thank you must go out to Ken’s Flower Shop for donating hundreds of balloons. Walt Churchill’s Market as well for supplying the players with oodles of chocolate milk. In addition, the Athletic Boosters graciously provided a spirit bus free of charge to the students in an effort not only to fill the stands, but to ensure safe travels for the student body. As the holidays approach, our hope is that each member in the community remembers to give thanks for what really matters in our lives. We should be proud to be surrounded by such charitable individuals.

Annual Salon des Refusés show opens November 21 Columbia Gas offers tips for safe, affordable, comfortable homes Page 12 — November 19, 2014 — PERRYSBURG MESSENGER JOURNAL Prizm Creative Community will present the annual Salon des Refusés art exhibition November 21 through January 8, at the Parkwood Gallery, 1838 Parkwood Avenue, Toledo. Exhibit viewing hours are from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m. An opening reception will be held Friday, November 21, from 6 to 10 p.m., with awards presented at 8:45 p.m. Serving as award co-emcees are Michael Seay and Emilie Voss. Prizm Creative Community, a non-profit, volunteer organization, sponsors the event as a service to the community. This year’s judges are Leslie Adams, internationally acclaimed portrait artist, and Barbara Miner, head of Studio Art and Foundations at the University of Toledo. Art Aficionados are expected to enjoy a great night of art many of them visiting both the TAA show opening across the street at the TMA, and the Salon Show also exhibiting some of the best in local art. The Salon show took its name from an exhibition held in Paris in 1863 by Napoleon III for those artists whose work had been rejected by the prestigious Paris Salon. The official Paris Salon was an important event on the French arts calendar; paintings were selected by jury, prizes awarded, and paintings were bought by collectors and government. The jury’s taste in painting was conservative and traditional in what was considered proper painting techniques and suitable subject matter. It was not unusual to have the event make or break the reputation of artists. Many artists now considered masters had their work rejected. Rejected paintings had a red R stamped on the back for refusé (rejected). This mark not only declared a work unsuitable for the Salon show, it forever branded it as unworthy of being sold to a private buyer. The legendary original Salon des Refusés show of 1863 included a who’s who of future impressionist masters like Manet, Degas and Renoir. Other famous artists included that year were Paul Cezanne, Camille Pissarro and James Whistler. The Salon des Refusés of 1863 is regarded as a turning point in the history of art and some describe the show as ‘the most convenient date from which to begin a history of modern painting. Today by extension, salon des refusés refer to any exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show. The Salon des Refusés show in the Toledo area has earned a reputation for celebration and features some of the best in local talent. Originally the TAA Show and the resulting Salon Show show rewarded the home town roots of Toledo by allowing any artist throughout the country who lived or who at one time lived in the 17-county area served by the Toledo Museum of Art. In this year’s application Above: “Sun Homage,” pastel on board by Nancy Pickens.

The increased competition for a spot to be featured in the TAA show has caused The goal of the contest is to bring seniors and youth together. a lively discussion of what is the best for local artists. Artists can enjoy the opportunity to exhibit via the Salon Show tradition. The Salon des Refuses Exhibition also will be open for viewing during the downtown Toledo Holiday Loop event on Saturday, November 22, from 3 to 8 p.m. As an early blast of arctic air settles over the region, the cold weather does not necessarily mean high home heating bills are soon to follow. Natural gas prices continue to hover at near decade lows, helping relieve the strain of heating bills on family budgets. But regardless of low prices, the less gas you use, the less you pay. Columbia Gas of Ohio offers customers several tips to help keep bills manageable while keeping homes safe and comfortable as temperatures drop. Prepare Your Home Ensure that your home is ready for winter. This includes: •Having your furnace inspected to make sure it is operating safely and efficiently. •Making sure your thermostat is set to a temperature that suits your comfort and your wallet. Dropping the temperature by 10˚ to 15˚ when you’re out of the house (for eight hours) can save 5 to 15 percent on heating costs, according to the US EPA. This can be easily and automatically facilitated by a programmable thermostat. The Columbia Gas Simple Energy Solutions program offers a $25 rebate on qualifying programmable thermostats, or offers one online for just $4.95.

Prepare for Your Bills Approximately 80 percent of a typical wintertime bill is comprised of the cost of natural gas. In Ohio, customers have the opportunity to receive their natural gas from Columbia Gas, or com- With the cold, home owners sometimes utilize an alternative or secondary heating source. Columbia reminds families to be safe by using energy wisely, including: •Keeping flammable items, including paper, bedding or furniture, at least three feet away from heating equipment, fireplaces and stoves. •Place portable space heaters on a hard, level, nonflammable surface. Do not put space heaters on rugs or carpets, near bedding or drapes, and keep children pare natural gas prices and then select the best option for their home.

Using social media to broaden their reach beyond the concert stage and classroom, Project Trio has its own YouTube channel, which has over 80 million views and 96,000 subscribers, making it one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the Internet. Highlights of the trio’s 2014-15 season include engagements with the Detroit, Dallas, St. Louis, and Charleston symphonies, the Illinois Philharmonic, and season-opening concerts with the Evansville Philharmonic and Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony.

Ohio law requires anyone born on or after January 1, 1982, to successfully complete an approved boating safety education course before operating a boat greater than 10 horsepower. Successfully completing the course also may qualify boaters for a discount on boat owner’s insurance.

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District has developed the tool to help citizens understand their exact water service area. “This new map is useful not just for our customers, but for other residents of Wood County and northwest Ohio,” said Jerry Greiner, NWSD president. “Water can be a confusing topic, so we’re trying to simplify it for everyone.” The idea originated after the August water crisis, when NWSD employees wanted an easy way for its mostly Wood County customers to determine the source of their water. Since NWSD purchases or distributes water from six entities (Toledo, Oregon, Bowling Green, Perrysburg, Fostoria and Bloomdale), many customers were unsure whether they lived in the Toledo water service area or not. During the emergency, NWSD posted an online Perrysburg, OH 43551 •419-872-5343 Brian Hufford Builder, Inc.

Since then, the map has been refined with more information and search capabilities. The new map lets users enter their address and then displays a popup window detailing the treatment provider for their water (Toledo, Oregon, etc.), where the water comes from (Lake Erie, Maumee River, etc.) and a short description of the treatment facilities and treatment process. The popup also includes links to additional details, including the operator’s latest Consumer Confidence Reports. Users can navigate the map using pan and zoom tools without the need for entering a specific address. For users outside of NWSD’s service area, there are links to other water providers. The map is available via the NWSD website at www.NWSD.org/educationoutreach/waterquality/water-treatment/. Stritch Catholic’s robotics club qualifies for regional competition The robotics club at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School has qualified for the regional competition in Fargo, North Dakota. Only 37 teams in the Midwest qualified for the competition and Stritch’s team accomplished the feat in just its second year. The team qualified by finishing second in the BEST (Boosting, Science, Engineering, and Technology) hub competition at Bowling Green State University on Saturday, November 8. The group competed against 12 other high school teams throughout the region. “I’m so proud of our students,” said Eric Sieja, the group moderator and teacher at Stritch Catholic. “They came together as a team and made the necessary adjustments to advance. This is a great group of kids who are incredibly committed to making this work.” The robotics team is part of the STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine) initiative at CSCHS. Any student, whether or not they are enrolled in a STEMM course, may join the Robotics Club. In addition to designing and building a working robot that completes a specific task, students were also tasked with creating a marketing plan and presentation for their work. They also were required to fully document all their activities and ideas related to the robot. The robotics club will be competing in the Northern Plains Regional Final sponsored by North Dakota State University. The BEST organization is described on its website as “a non-profit, volunteerbased organization whose mission is to inspire students to pursue careers in engineering, science, technology, and math through participation in a sports-like, scienceand engineering-based robotics competition.” The group’s competition in Fargo will take place from December 4 to 6.

We are a non-profit organization. tXXXIVNBOFPIJPPSH XXXGBDFCPPLDPNIVNBOFPIJP Wood County Humane Society’s PETS OF THE WEEK Raleigh is the perfect sidekick for anyone seeking a kitty companion. She is equally content being lavished with affection and being given her space. She also isn’t overly curious, but she isn’t a scaredy-cat either. This affectionate girl has been at the shelter since August 2013 and is more than ready to find her forever home so that she can begin spending her days playing the role of a devoted and content house cat. If you have some extra room on your couch and in your heart, then think about adopting Raleigh. Spencer is a handsome and affectionate adult male Boxer who is relatively new to the shelter, so staffers are still getting to know him and his personality. Spencer does love to play and take walks. We also know that his forever home should be feline-free, as Spencer sometimes likes to hog the limelight a bit. Want to know more about this loveable guy? Come out to the shelter and meet him for yourself! **All of our pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated appropriate to their age, tested for heart worm and current on prevention in dogs, received an initial de-worming and flea prevention, have a 14-day health guarantee and a free physical exam to local participating veterinary offices. All of our pets are also microchipped prior to adoption.** Please visit or call the Wood County Humane Society at 419-352-7339 to learn more about these great pets.

Latta, Walz introduce legislation to address propane issues Congressman Bob Latta, along with Congressman Tim Walz of Minnesota, recently introduced the Propane Education and Research Enhancement Act of 2014. The bipartisan legislation directs the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to more accurately calculate consumer propane costs. It also enables the propane industry to use its resources to mitigate price spikes. “Last winter, the lives and livelihoods of many Americans were threatened due to propane shortages across the country,” said Congressman Latta. “Access to heat was a requirement for survival, and we want to ensure that Americans do not face the same hardships. The Propane Education and Research Enhancement Act of 2014 would take the necessary steps to allow the propane industry to adequately address propane supply and pricing issues, so consumers are not negatively impacted this winter.” “Winter is coming. Minnesota has already seen significant snowfall and freezing temperatures. It is imperative that we do everything in our power to protect families and local businesses from facing the price shocks we witnessed last winter when a lack of supply put people’s lives and livelihoods at risk,” said Congressman Walz. “The Propane Education and Research Enhancement Act provides the tools that consumers and distributors need to avoid future disruptions.” In 1996, Congress enacted the Propane Education and Research Act (PERA) authorizing the propane industry to collect and use its own resources for safety, training, research and development, and education for the benefit of propane consumers and the public. The law also established the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) to accomplish these goals. To prevent this program from creating a disproportionate demand for propane, the DOC is required to annually calculate the price for “consumer grade propane” and compare it with an index of prices of specified competing fuels. If the price of propane exceeds a certain threshold, PERC is restricted from conducting its educational outreach activities. In 2009, due to a misinterpretation of the law by the DOC, the restriction was triggered and all educational outreach by PERC ceased. While DOC believes Congress intended PERA to focus only on “residential-only” propane, the text of the law does not limit it to the residential market. To correct this discrepancy, the Propane Education and Research Enhancement Act of 2014 would clarify the language of the law to require DOC to use the proper data and bring the application of the law back in line with Congress’ intent. It would also amend the existing functions of PERC to include training distributors and consumers in strategies to mitigate the negative effects of propane price spikes.

Viewing hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Justin Marx, owner of Kala Fine Arts, has been curating and representing artists from India since his first trip to India in 1999. Most of the artists he represents have art careers in India but had little exposure outside of the country. Mr. Marx changed that by introducing audiences to a vast array of art for the last fifteen years. As a curator of contemporary Indian art, he has been on the forefront witnessing American interest and appreciation of that segment of Indian art grow steadily. “Museums across the world are beginning to diversify their collections, and I’m delighted that the Toledo Museum of Art has recently acquired their first work of Contemporary Indian art,” said Mr. Marx. He has selected a diverse collection of beautiful and colorful contemporary and modern work for the Perrysburg Municipal Building exhibition. Many of the artists in the show have art work in the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. Two such artists are Sekhar Kar and P. Perumal. Sekhar Kar holds a mas- open each Friday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The Clothesline accepts clean, gently used clothing for men, women, and children.

His long illustrious has defined him as a figurative artist whose style is “folksy” and represents his childhood memories of his life in rural India. His paintings are filled with lean lanky figures with elongated arms and muted colors. His artwork is in the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi.

BOLD ACADEMICS for 7th & 8th Grade The Christmas story will come alive at Zoar Lutheran Church December 6 and 7, as Perrysburg resident Michael Searle will perform the dramatic presentation “I Remember Bethlehem–The Innkeeper’s Story.” The performance will be held Saturday, December 6, at 6 p.m., and Sunday, December 7, at 11 a.m., and 7:15 and 8:30 p.m. The monologue is a first person account of the events surrounding the birth of Christ on Christmas Eve and the early morning hours of Christmas Day. The costumed portrayal is an attempt to take a very familiar story and have audience see it through different eyes–those of an eyewitness who was actually there that night. The setting is 40 years after the birth of Christ as the innkeeper tells his story to a man we now know as Saint Luke, who is doing research for a book he is writing on the life of Christ. ✶✶✶✶ ✶ One-to-One iPad Program ✶ High School Level Course Options ✶ Expanded Math Options ✶ Language Program ✶ Fine Arts Program ✶ Academic Assist Study Period ✶ Leadership & Club Opportunities GRADES 7 & 8 INFORMATION NIGHT Wednesday, December 3 5:30-6:55 PM Tours & Activities PARENT INFO 7PM ✶✶✶✶ BOLD! ✶ BRILLIANT! ✶ BEAUTIFUL! ✶ BLESSED!

He has performed lead roles in dozens of musicals and plays with theaters such as the Toledo Rep and Perrysburg Musical Theatre, and has been a featured soloist with the Toledo Symphony and the Perrysburg Symphony.
