2,400 acres of park land during fiscal year 2017, which
runs from July 1, 2016 to June

$226,000 of in-kind match,
explained Tim Schetter,
metroparks director of natural

The next meeting of the
board of education will be a
study session on Wednesday,
July 13 and the next regular
meeting will be on Wednesday,
July 27. Open to the public, the
meetings are held at 5 p.m., at
the administration building,
6900 Hall Street.
With schools closed for the
summer, families in need can
still take advantage of a free
meal program for children.
In the Holland/Springfield
area, the Summer Food Service Program is offered at Community Homecoming Park,
Angola Road.
Meals are served from
noon to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday, through August 12.
All children ages 1 through
18 are eligible to receive free
meals during the summer
months at participating program sites.
Individuals ages 19 through
21 who have been identified as
having mental or physical disabilities and are following individualized
programs (IEPs) through their
current enrollment in educational programs also are eligible for free summer meals.
Wendi Huntley, spokesperson for Summer Meal Partners
of Northwest Ohio and director of development at Feed
Lucas County Children Inc.,
said the program has helped
feed thousands of children
across the state.
In 2015, more than 50,000
Ohio children received free
daily meals at more than 1,700
sites run by local program
sponsors, the Ohio Department of Education and the
U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The Summer Meal Partners
of Northwest Ohio is a collaboration of community organizations dedicated to fighting
childhood hunger.
The group emphasizes data
collection and analysis to ensure that summer sites’ locations can effectively serve
children in need.
In 2015, the group provided 264,680 meals and
snacks to children in the
greater Toledo area.
This year, they will support
150 meal sites in Toledo–an
increase from 86 in 2014.
“The Summer Food Service Program helps to fill the
gap for so many of our most
vulnerable residents–hungry
children,” Ms. Huntley said.
“It is during the summer
months when those who especially rely on breakfast and
lunch during the school year,
stand in need of our help.”
U.S. Senator
Brown, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, is
urging families in need to utilize the service.
For many parents, he noted
that summertime “means
stress over how to care for
children while parents work,
or how to feed children nutritious meals without the school
lunches they count on throughout the rest of the year.
“That’s why every year we
work to get the word out about
the Summer Food Service Program so that families know the
end of the school year doesn’t
mean an end to food services
for their children. Because
summer break shouldn’t mean
going hungry.”

were constructed from a standard kit provided by VEX Robotics, which produces the
materials to introduce students to the field of robotics.
Participants used the VEX
Robotics design system to
build a frame and base for
their robots, interchange
wheels, create geared armatures and engineer wiring.
On the second day, teams
modified their robots in
preparation for competition.
Working together, the students adapted their vehicles
for user-piloted challenges
and obstacles, as well as au-
tonomous robot challenges
that required programming.
On day three, participants
spent the morning tweaking
their designs before competing against each other in the
This year’s contest consisted of displacing and moving as many yellow stars,
above, as possible to their opponents’ side. They also maneuvered their vehicles to
keep the opponent from pushing any stars back across the
A challenge facing teams
occurred at the start of the
contest. They were required to
program the system to drive
itself for the first 15 seconds
before manual control resumed.
Some of the vehicles
strayed off course, frustrating
the youthful engineers.
The field of play changes
each year, allowing students
who take the camp annually
to face new challenges, explained Mike James, a camp
counselor and Ohio Northern
University student.
Campers were clearly en-
gaged in the competition,
jumping and calling out advice to the teammate controlling the vehicle as the contest

The primary goal of the
camp is to educate students in
robotics through trial and
error, explained Mark Robinson, instructor.
“This is STEM education,” he said, adding that
much of the learning is hands
For the students, building
the robotic vehicles goes beyond science, technology, engineering and math. The
game is fun and intense as
they try to outdo the competition.
The camp also allows students to employ STEM con-
cepts on the playing field,
while learning teamwork,
leadership, communications
and more.
Presented by the Robotics
Education and Competition
Foundation, the VEX robotics
contest can be taken well beyond the camp environment.
Worldwide, teams of students design and construct robots to play against other
teams in a game-based engineering challenge.
Tournaments are held
year-round at local, state and
national levels, and local
champions have the opportunity to compete against the
best in the world at the VEX
Robotics World Championship held each spring.
Penta Career Center is one
of a handful of districts
statewide to offer robotic
camps this summer.
The camp is sponsored by
the Robotics Advanced Manufacturing Technical Engineering
(RAMTEC) of which Penta is
one of nine career center partners in Ohio.

Sisters of St. Francis install new leadership team
The Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, installed the 2016–20 leadership team on Sunday,
June 26, at a special liturgy in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel on the Motherhouse
grounds in Sylvania. The five-member team will oversee congregational governance and
the day-to-day operation of the Sylvania Franciscans. From left are Sister Theresa Darga,
assistant congregational minister; Sister Rachel Marie Nijakowski, councilor; Sister
Sharon Derivan, councilor; Sister Mary Jon Wagner, congregational minister, and Sister
Shannon Schrein, councilor.
The perilous state of the
district’s finances was punctuated in January 2015, when
representatives from the Ohio
Department of Education informed members of the Board
of Education and administration that Springfield Local
Schools had been assigned to
the classification of “fiscal
caution.” Since that time, the
district has continued its wellpublicized efforts to increase
operational efficiencies and reduce spending in all areas. As
promised, more than a year
later, those practices continue–all possible ways to reduce expenses are identified
and put into practice. In addition, the district has remained
true to promises made during
levy campaigns to remain
transparent by providing detailed reports each month during board of education
At the time the district was
placed in the “fiscal caution”
classification, the community
learned that the Auditor of
State’s office would fund and
conduct a full performance
audit. The audit was extensive
and examined every facet of
district operations. Reviewed
were: finances, human resources/staffing, transportation, food service and facilities.
When results were presented to the community, few
could fault the efforts employed by the district. These
efforts were validated by the
audit. The audit revealed that
the only means available to
further reduce costs would result in the total decimation of
the district’s K-12 academic
programs. Athletics, extracurricular and performing arts
programs also were at risk.
Thankfully, the audit results
motivated a rallying cry
throughout the community and
the district’s $3.9 million fiveyear emergency operating levy
That was 14 months ago
and Treasurer P. Ryan Lockwood, III and I have remained
true to the promises made to
“right the ship.” While there is
always more to be done, actions that took place at the June
22 board of education meeting,
when David Michel from the
Ohio Department of Education
returned, show that progress
has been made.
Effective immediately, the
Ohio Department of Education
has removed the district from
its fiscal caution status.
This does not signify an
end to the district’s efforts to
identify operational efficiencies. It does not signify an end
to the district’s transparency or
efforts to maintain strong communication with the community.
It does, however,
recognize significant progress
towards restoring financial stability.
While some expressed concern that passage of the fiveyear emergency levy would
restore a “business as usual”
mentality, members of the
board of education, Mr. Lockwood and I assure that is not
the case.
As one example, during the
next several months, residents
will learn more details of the
district’s Energy Optimizer
project that is projected to save
on energy consumption, resulting in a significant reduction in
payments and anticipated savings on costs associated with
HVAC and lighting.
In addition, negotiations
with the labor unions representing both certified and noncertified staff demonstrated
cooperation and a mutual commitment to reduce expenditures in all areas of district

Twp. trustees amend zoning request
By Jane Maiolo
At the June 16 meeting,
the Springfield Township
trustees approved an amendment to a zoning change.
The request to rezone
7371 and 7405 West Bancroft
Street from RA-4 rural residential to R-1 single family
planned unit development
(PUD) was approved by the
trustees last September.
According to township administrator Leslie Kohli, consulting engineer George
Oravecz was informed by
Lucas County officials that
the development is required
to follow subdivision regulations which require a minimum spacing of 800 feet for
new roads.
As a result, there is insufficient space for the
ingress/egress roads.
The township appealed
the decision to the Lucas
County engineer’s office. “It
is the board’s preference to
have two drives rather than
just one for safety concerns,”
wrote Ms. Kohli in a letter to
Kyle Warner of the engineer’s
office. “Even if it was not life
threatening but rather an obstacle to travel such as an accident or a down tree, this
would give residents an alternate route.”
In the amendment to the
PUD, the county waived the
800 feet spacing but is requiring that the roads be built to
county specifications and
pass inspection by the county

several years earlier to construct facilities on McCord

Business News
Wendy’s is supporting adoption locally, one brick at a
time. From July 1 through 31, select Wendy’s restaurants in
northwest Ohio are striving to raise thousands of dollars. The
cost to adopt one child into a loving and permanent family
is $5,000. To reach this goal, local Wendy’s restaurants are
selling paper “sandcastle bricks” for $1. All proceeds will
benefit the Adopt America Network, located in Toledo.
During the month of July, customers can visit any of the
25 participating Wendy’s in Toledo, Oregon, Fostoria, Bowling Green, Perrysburg, Rossford, Swanton, Holland,
Maumee, Sylvania, and Adrian and Tecumseh, Michigan, to
purchase a “sandcastle brick,” sign their name on it and have
it displayed in the restaurant to show their support of adoption.
Adopt America is a nonprofit organization committed to
improving the lives of adoptable children throughout the
United States, who are in the foster care system, by placing
them with permanent, loving families.
“Our Wendy’s restaurants have always been proud to support Adopt America Network, since adoption was Dave
Thomas’ favorite charitable cause,” said franchise owner
Becky Williams.
“Every year we raise money to help defray the cost to a
family wanting to adopt a child. By selling the bricks we are
able to involve the community.”
Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas, was adopted as a child.
He was an advocate for children in foster care and was committed to raising awareness of children who are waiting for
permanent homes and loving families in North America. He
founded the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a nonprofit public charity dedicated to increasing adoptions of
children in North America’s foster care system.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption works in collaboration locally with the Adopt America Network to increase the number of adoptions in northwest Ohio and
southeast Michigan.

Meet Max and
Molly. This dynamic
duo comes as a complete set. These two
dogs are in love with
each other–they came
to the Humane Society
together on May 31,
and are hoping to go
home together. They
were surrendered by
their owners because
they were moving and
couldn’t take this pair
with them.
Max, above, is an 8year-old
Spaniel, and Molly,
below, is a 5-year-old
chocolate Lab. They are
both mellow, relaxed,
and laid back.
If you live a quiet
life and are looking for
some good, loving companionship this pair will
be perfect for you. They
both enjoy going for walks together and are well behaved
on their leashes. They get along well with other dogs and
love their playgroups here at the shelter. They were raised
as outdoor hunting dogs, so don’t let their ages fool you,
they still have some “get up and go” in them. Stop by and
see if this team is the right fit for you.

regular board meeting on
June 23, requesting that the

levy on the November 2016

“Strong libraries build
strong communities, and the
library demonstrates value by
continuously delivering a
strong return on investment*.
This decision further shows
our commitment to growing
futures, creating opportunity,
and transforming lives,” said
Clyde Scoles, director of
Toledo Lucas County Public
With the approval of the
library’s Board of Trustees,
the resolution will be delivered to the Lucas County
Board of Commissioners for
them to place a 3.7 mill, fiveyear operating levy on the
November 8 ballot.
The 2.9 mills would renew
the existing levy and the 0.8
mill would be additional. The
current levy, which was approved by voters in 2012, was
a 2.9 mill referendum, which
expires on December 31,
The additional 0.8 mill is
expected to restore what library patrons lost due to funding cuts and state funding.
Mr. Scoles, who also serves
as the library’s fiscal officer,
further remarked.

House was able to implement new programs, including

was absolutely necessary.
This levy represents more
than half of the library’s operating budget, with the state’s
public library fund contributing the rest. The state contribution
substantially, and we are currently operating at 1997 funding levels. We need to
improve upon this to continue
the library service the residents of Lucas County have
long enjoyed and depend on.”
For the owner of a
$100,000 home, the 0.8 mill
increase amounts to 8 cents a
day. Currently, the homeowner pays $87.50 per year
based on the present 2.9 mill
levy renewal. With the additional 0.8 mill increase, for a
proposed 3.7 mills total, a
homeowner will pay $116.81

to help restore vitality to the

growing their investment,”
said Mr. Scoles.

that the library provides an
economic value of nearly $4
