Southview wins overtime thriller
By Tami Rempe Last Saturday night, the Northview Wildcats boys’ basketball team took on the Southview Cougars. You might think that with a record of 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the NLL, the Cougars would have an easy win over the Wildcats, who were 1-7 The first quarter was a defensive battle, with Southview playing a tough man-to-man defense and Northview set up in their 2-3 zone. Casey Schaffer scored for Northview but David Renner answered for the Cougars. Southview’s Chris Johnson added a 3-pointer and Brandon Sinram made a steal and layup, giving the Cougars a 7-6 lead at the end of the first quarter. Johnson started the second quarter by hitting a 12-foot jump shot, and De’Nard Pinckney was fouled on a fast break layup and sank both free throws to give the Cougars a five point lead. Conner Hartnett responded for the Wildcats by driving the lane on back-to-back possessions and making three out of four free throws, bringing the score to 11-8 halfway through the quarter. Pinckney hit a three pointer and Allen Gant connected on a turn-around jumper in the lane and two free throws to give the Cougars an 18-11 advantage. Pinckney added two more foul shots, giving

Hall gave Southview a 19-17 lead with a shot and a free throw, but Northview’s Katelynn McCoy tied it up on a baseline layup. Jessica Jessing scored for the LadyKats on a fast break layup off a SV turnover, but Lopez countered with a two point shot and they were tied again at 21 apiece.

Northview came out shooting in the final quarter, with McCoy scoring on backto-back possessions for the LadyKats. After a Southview timeout, Hall hit a 10-foot jumper, and Natalie Harlan connected on a nice spin move in the lane, cutting the Northview lead to 5. McCoy scored on another baseline layup, putting the LadyKats up 35-28 with under two minutes to play. Northview began running out the clock, forcing the Lady Cougars to foul. Sohasky grabbed a rebound off a missed free throw and made her layup and free throw, putting the LadyKats up by 10. Hall

attempted a three pointer but missed, then scored on a layup the next time down the floor. Northview’s Justinger, who sank two free throws on their previous possession, dribbled out the clock to end the game. Northview wins with a final score of 40-30. Southview coach Todd Bostater commented after the game, “Offensively we couldn’t get the whole team going.” The stats prove this as Lexi Lopez led all scorers with 13, and Taylor Hall had 11, with the rest of the Lady Cougars scoring just six points. Bostater was fairly pleased with his team’s defense, “We did a nice job containing them.” Especially true after the first quarter, as the Southview defense held Northview’s leading scorer, Justinger, to just 11 points in the game, seven of which were scored in the first quarter. Rounding out the scoring for Northview were Sohasky with 11, McCoy with 8 and Skylar Rose adding 6. Northview remains undefeated in the NLL at 4-0 and moves to 6-2 overall, while Southview falls to 2-2 in the league and 5-3 overall.

Central Catholic named an Apple Distinguished School
Central Catholic High School is pleased to announce that it has been named one of 52 Apple Distinguished Schools across the United States for the 2010-11 academic year. Central Catholic is one of only two schools given this distinction in the state of Ohio and this is the second year in a row for CCHS. This designation is reserved for schools that have implemented a 21st century vision of education using Apple technology. The selection of Central Catholic as an Apple Distinguished School highlights its successes in enhancing and extending teaching and learning with thoughtful and innovative implementations of technology. Apple Distinguished Schools are schools that have integrated Apple products and solutions and have become centers of educational excellence and leadership. These schools also demonstrate Apple’s highest vision of a successful 21st century learning environment. “I was especially impressed by the use of Apple’s professional level hardware and software to provide students with an industry-level media production environment,” said John Couch, Apple’s Vice President of Education, about Central Catholic. Central Catholic introduced its One Connected Community laptop program in 2007 to provide every incoming freshman student with an Apple MacBook computer. The students are able to use their computers in class and at home, allowing teachers to

Screen Time
What does watching TV or playing video games have to do with your child’s health?
Children are spending more time in front of a screen (screen time) and less time getting the exercise they need to stay fit and healthy. Doctors suggest limiting the time children spend watching TV, playing video games or using computers for reasons other than schoolwork to no more than 2 hours per day. Parents find themselves so busy these days it’s sometimes tempting to use the TV or computer as a babysitter. • Ask a friend or relative to play with the kids while you get your work done. • Team up with family or adult neighbors to spend one day a week supervising play activities for the kids.


And remember:
• No snacks, sugary drinks and fast food during screen time.
As part of our ongoing mission to improve the health and wellness of children throughout our community, Mercy Children’s Hospital and Kohl’s Department Stores are proud to offer the Kohl’s Kids in Action program – designed to provide parents and other caregivers with practical advice on raising healthy children. Kohl’s Kids in Action offers support and guidance for individuals to foster positive behaviors in the health and nutrition of children. Our approach is centered on four steps critical to raising healthy children: good nutrition, increased physical activity, proper water intake and good sleep habits.

WEDNESDAY, January 12, 2011

Since 1970, January has been declared National Volunteer Blood Donor Month and with good reason. Above all other times of the year, it’s the month that presents the most challenges in recruiting people to give blood. This January is no exception with the local Red Cross in an urgent need for more donors. Changing weather, busy holiday schedules, increased cold and flu symptoms and even the winter blues can keep the most dedicated blood donors from making or keeping an appointment to give. Yet winter weather can lead to more traumatic injuries on icy roads and may increase the need for blood. The local Red Cross needs about 300 blood donors every day to meet the needs of patients at 24 area hospitals. However, there has been a 10 percent dip in blood donations so far this winter. Recent blood drive cancellations due to weather also meant the Red Cross was not able to collect nearly 200 donations it had planned on for patients. As the Red Cross is trying to recruit donors, a high number of people asked to give are reporting cold or flu symptoms, which make them not able to donate. “There are so many unpredictable factors at play that can affect the blood supply during January; it’s a critical time to remind the public of the need for more donors,” Annie Marckel, Program Manager of Communications for the American Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region said. “If you are in good health, now is the time to share that good health with patients in need.” As an added bonus for blood donors that

TOLEDO- For pet parents who pledge to protect their pets in the new year, Humane Ohio can help make that new year’s resolution a reality. The non-profit organization will host a Rabies Vaccination and Microchipping Clinic on Saturday, Jan. 22 and run their annual “Beat the Heat” promotion during the month of February. On Jan. 22, pet parents can get rabies vaccinations for their dogs and cats for $5 per pet and microchipping for $20 per pet (cash only, please). Clients will be taken on a first come, first serve basis (no appointments) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Humane Ohio, 3131 Tremainsville (between Laskey and Alexis), Toledo. Rabies vaccinations are required by law. Microchipping is a permanent pet identification system designed to help reunite lost pets with their owners (animal shelters throughout the country take in millions of lost dogs and cats each year and 99 out of 100 cats have no identification). A tiny computer chip about the size of a piece of rice that has an identification number programmed into it is easily injected under the skin of your pet by a veterinarian. This provides a permanent, positive identification which cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed. It is a safe, simple and inexpensive way to protect your pet against loss or theft. Animal shelters, animal control agencies and veterinarians can scan a pet for a microchip by waving a wand over the pet’s shoulder blades. Humane Ohio will also run their annual “Beat the Heat” promotion during the month of February. The group will spay female cats for the special rate of $20 in an effort to prevent unwanted litters before kitten season. This special rate for female cats is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and applies to all residents of Lucas County and Wood County (must provide proof of residency). Cat owners who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention

the “Beat the Heat” promotion when they call to schedule their appointment. The promotion is based on availability. Jill Borkowski, Humane Ohio marketing manager, says “Our rabies vaccination and microchipping clinic and our “Beat the Heat” promotion are ways for us to offer pet parents special low-cost rates and financial assistance beyond our normal low-cost prices. We’re able to help pets and their owners at the same time, and our “Beat the Heat” promotion also prevents unwanted litters of kittens from being born this spring.” Borkowski continues, “Protecting pets and the public against rabies, microchipping pets in case they become lost, and spaying or neutering – which has health and behavioral benefits in addition to preventing unwanted litters – all go hand in hand with our mission to promote responsible pet care and reduce pet overpopulation.” For more information about the Rabies Vaccination and Microchipping Clinic or to schedule a “Beat the Heat” spay appointment for a female cat, contact Humane Ohio at 419-266-5607 or visit www.humaneohio. org (ask about low-cost spay/neuter prices for dogs and male cats too). Humane Ohio operates a non-profit, lowcost spay/neuter clinic and pet food bank. Their spay/neuter clinic serves all area pet parents, people caring for free-roaming cats, animal shelters and rescue groups. The non-profit organization can offer low-cost spay/neuter prices because private donations and grants help subsidize the true, higher cost of spay/neuter procedures. Humane Ohio believes that all animals should receive the highest quality veterinary care possible even if the services rendered are at a reduced cost. Their clinic uses state of the art instruments and equipment, all spay/ neuter surgeries are performed by qualified, licensed veterinarians (DVMs) and every patient receives a brief physical exam and quality pain medication.

Kick off 2011 with new exercise routines
What do you want to achieve in 2011? Let’s be realistic: You may not be able to climb Mount Everest or fly the space shuttle, but you can definitely get the thrill and the adrenaline rush out of exercise! “The New Year is a good time to start a new exercise regimen or re-shuffle your old one,” says Maryellen Jordan, personal trainer at Positively Fit in Maumee, OH. “When it comes to working out, it should not be the same old, monotonous moves all the time. Try something new and different to bring spark and excitement into your old routine.” If you are new to exercise and just starting out, “you have made a smart choice,” Jordan notes. “Physical activity will bring multiple benefits to you, from weight control, leaner body and muscles, and improved strength, to prevention of heart disease, high blood pressure, stokes, some forms of cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and joint ailments.” If you are a beginner, Jordan recommends these tips: · Consult your physician before you begin any type of vigorous activity. · Choose exercises that you can practice easily all year round, in all kinds of weather. Make sure it’s an activity that will keep you excited; stay away from anything that you find too difficult or boring. · To avoid injury, always begin your exercise routine slowly, allowing the necessary time to warm up beforehand and cool down afterwards. · Regularity is the key to success, so establish a schedule that you can stick to. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends moderate exercise 30 minutes a day, at least five days a week. As you become accustomed to working out,

you can increase your levels of exertion. · Remember that to get the most overall benefit from an exercise routine, it must go-hand-in-hand with sensible eating habits. If you are not a newbie exerciser and want to spice up your existing workout, Jordan recommends introducing some new routines. “As time goes by, your fitness goals may change,” she says. “For example, you suddenly realize you have to pay more attention to your bones and joints, so you need to add more weight-bearing and muscle strengthening workouts to your regimen. That’s why reviewing your needs and goals from time to time is very useful.” Unsure what new exercises to throw into the old mix? “The best thing is to ask a fitness professional for advice,” Jordan suggests. “These people have the training and experience to help customize a workout to meet your specific needs and requirements.”

Room color useful to reflect desired mood
ProTect Painters of Monroe wants to help people with their New Year’s resolutions to make their living spaces more interesting. People often go straight to certain swatches or colors without considering the personality of each room. The colors of the walls and ceilings, in addition to the furnishings, have the power to change the mood in a room completely. Any savvy room-decorator must consider the characteristics of various colors before buying paint. Micheal and Jennifer MacLeod of the ProTect Painters in Monroe offers the following expertise with insight from various sources, including Freshome, Bloomsburg University, and others. This simple information should be kept in mind when you determining what colors are most appropriate for your house. They include: • Blue: Elicits feelings of tranquility and confidence. It is the least appetizing color, so should not be the main color in kitchens. People are more productive in blue rooms and it is common in bedrooms because it produces calming chemicals in the body. • Green: Representative of nature, health, and relaxation. Currently the most popular color for decorating because it is easiest on the eyes. It is suited for almost any room in the house because it can promote comfort in the living room and also fertility in the

Internationally renowned Wagnerian soprano to speak prior to Toledo Opera Gala
Wagnerian soprano Jane Eaglen will speak about her life and career and the challenges of singing Wagner’s music on Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. in the Green Room at the Toledo Museum of Art prior to the Gala performance of The Romance of the Ring. Toledo Opera’s general and artistic director Renay Conlin will introduce Eaglen and serve as moderator. The Gala performance will include excerpts from Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle, performed by soprano Deborah Mayer, tenor Michael Hayes and bass Gustav Andreassen, with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Thomas Conlin. Jane Eaglen was born in 1960 in England and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Eaglen was contracted to the English National Opera straight out of college, cutting her teeth in minor parts before being cast in more significant roles in operas like Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Verdi’s Il trovatore. Worldwide acclaim came with her portrayal of Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Eaglen sang her first Brünnhilde in Der Ring des Nibelungen with the Lyric Opera of Chicago in 1996. Her first Isolde in Tristan und Isolde came in 1998 with the Seattle Opera, a company she has returned to consistently. She repeated the role in 1999 with Chicago Lyric Opera, and in 2000 at the Metropolitan Opera. Eaglen’s international career has brought her to the great stages of the world singing what are arguably the most difficult roles in the repertory. She will discuss how her success with such iconic Italian leading roles like Bellini’s Norma, Puccini’s Turandot, and Ponchielli’s La Gioconda informed and enhanced her interpretations of Wagner. Notable performances include Ariadne auf Naxos in Budapest, London, and Seattle, Der Fliegende Holländer in concert with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Un ballo in maschera in Paris, Bologna, Chicago and London, and Don Giovanni in New York, Vienna, Los Angeles, Munich and London, and Tosca in London, Japan and Australia. Jane Eaglen’s many solo CDs include arias by Wagner and Bellini, arias by Strauss and Mozart, Strauss’ Four Last Songs, Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, Berg’s Seven Early Songs, and Italian opera arias. Her Teldec recording of Wagner’s Tannhäuser with conductor Daniel Barenboim earned a Grammy Award in the category Best Opera Recording. She may also be heard in Mahler’s Eighth Symphony with Riccardo Chailly on a Decca CD, in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Claudio Abbado Sony Classics, as Tosca on the Chandos label, the title role in Norma with Riccardo Muti on EMI, and in the title role of Opera Rara’s Medea in Corinto. In addition, Ms. Eaglen is featured on Sony’s soundtrack for the film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Miss Eaglen’s career now includes a teaching residency at the Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the World’s Great Voices tell her story. This pre-concert talk is free to Gala ticket holders; please call 419255-7464 to reserve a space. Remaining tickets for The Romance of the Ring are available at 419-255-7464, ext 1, or visit www.toledoopera. org to order tickets on-line.

It is most successful when used sparingly. • Red: Brings people together and stimulates conversation in the living room and stimulates appetite in the kitchen. Strong and can increase heart rate so neutral accents should be utilized. • Yellow: Inspiring and hopeful. People tend to lose their tempers most often in yellow rooms. It is the hardest color for the eye to take in. Yellow enhances concentration, speeds metabolism, and is perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. • Orange: Denotes balance, excitement,hasluminousqualities. While it is not a good idea in the living room or bedroom, it is great for an exercise room. • Black: Effective in small doses as an accent color. Symbolizes power, formality, and elegance. • White: Simple, pure, clean, and brings a summery lightness to any room. To make white work, an accented wall, colorful furnishings or artwork should be used. “The color of the ceiling should not be neglected because lighter colors make the room seem more open, while darker colors make the room more intimate,” added Michael MacLeod, owner of the ProTect Painters in Monroe. As an overall rule, dark greens, dark reds and dark blues should be used in good lighting.

WEDNESDAY, January 12, 2011

The Week Ahead: Jan. 16 through Jan. 22, 2011 Aries (March 21-Apr. 19) Right now your life is about money, finances and work. You really need to financially decide what is important and then manifest your ideas. There is no time like the present to set your intentions and make them a reality. Don’t over think it; just do it. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) This week is about getting organized and that means getting organized for yourself and not for other people. This is also an important time to focus on exercise and diet. Things will fall into place in your life when you provide yourself with the proper structure. Gemini (May 21-June 21) Take a step back and review the past year and a half. It’s important to decide what you like and don’t like. This review process will help you clarify your goals and set intentions. If you do this, lots of things will manifest for you between now and August. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Spend some time focusing on home and family this week. It’s important to honor your family ties while making decisions that are honest and truthful when it comes to yourself. Connections with siblings and parents are important but need to be balanced and healthy. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) This week is about moving or having an opportunity to move or buy some real estate. New job opportunities could also be on the horizon for you so keep your eyes open. The universe is bringing you opportunities to make changes and embrace new things. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This is a good time for reassessing your finances. Now that the holidays are over, you’re in the place to look at money issues and make important decisions based on how you feel about things. Don’t allow negative thoughts and fears to play a role in you decisions.

rather than trying to control things through your mind. Take a deep breath and don’t do anything. Simply set back and allow. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Take a breath and get organized is week. It’s out with the old; out with the old. It’s time to simplify your life. Look at your relationships and decide what you do and don’t want while coming to the realization about the things you need to change on the inside. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Work will seem challenging this week. You will feel the need to reopen old wounds but the past is the past. Don’t allow old triggers to take you on a downward spiral. It’s important to remember that what you intend now will be. So, let go of negative thoughts.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Dreams about death are really about rebirth and new beginnings. It’s time to let go of negative thoughts and stop worrying about what other people are doing and thinking. The most important thing you can do right now is to trust, live and embrace life. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Right now you may be feeling the need to hide from people but really you should be taking some time to connect with others. When you open up and share your time, you will experience an infinite flow of community, of oneness and of unity. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Compulsive habits and health issues are causing some ups and downs in your energy flow. These things are indicating that it’s time to let go of something. Holding onto things only hurts you in the long run. Go with the flow and be in a space of being grounded and aware. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s important this week to look at your life and let go of control. Right now is the time to allow things to take place on a spiritual level

There are those who would debate over the official date of Sylvania’s founding. A plat document was found dated 1833 but other historical items are found dated 1832 and 1835. In 1933, Maynard Giles Cosgrove, descendent of three generations of Sylvania physicians, felt that the depressing times, horrid economy and disheartened citizens needed a happy celebration. Popular opinion set 1833 as Sylvania’s birthday so the Sylvania Centennial was set for Sept. 2, 3 and 4, 1933. And what a celebration it was! The long weekend was jam-packed with a parade, historical exhibit and pageant, carnival, band concert, baseball game, wrestling and boxing exhibition, street dance, potluck lunches, model aeroplane contest, fire department exhibition drill, fireworks display and more. Wish I could have been there! I would have enjoyed seeing the shoe lacing contest, fat men’s race, necktie tying contest and pop drinking contest. A wonderful booklet was printed to commemorate the Centennial: “A History of Sylvania for the First Hundred Years and Centennial Celebration Program 1833-1933.” Maynard Cosgrove was known as the Sylvania historian of his time and he compiled the information

One of several bands to perform gets the crowd excited for New Year’s.

It wasn’t church as usual at McCord Road Christian Church this past New Year’s Eve. “Radiation”, the student ministry of MRCC hosted its second annual

McCord Road Christian Church’s New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve Party and was it ever a party! Three bands, Altars of Athens, Inconspicuous Fish and Face Like Flint, all from Radiation’s Music Ministry “Bridges” kept things rocking all night. The party was spread out through out the entire church building with inflatable games in the gym and auditorium as well as food and “minute to win it games” up in second floor where the youth studio and rec. room are located. It was a night to remember for the approximately 200 who attended that night. One of the night’s highlights was the countdown to midnight when 2011 glow bracelets sailed over the gym mezzanine wall to those waiting in the darken gym below. Door prizes were handed out all through out the evening, but the best prizes were saved for after the countdown to midnight. That is when Radiation gave away a 26 inch LED TV, bluray player, “Flip” video camera and more. It was a great way to ring in the New Year. If you are looking for a thriving student ministry

McCord Road Christian Church’s student group hosted approximately 200 area students for a packed night of fun for New Year’s Eve.

Free Prescription drug card offered to Sylvania area residents
SYLVANIA- Residents of Sylvania, and the surrounding area, now have access to free discount prescription drug cards, compliments of the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce. Sylvania Area Rx Card will provide savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs, and is accepted at over 54,000 pharmacies across the country. Anyone interested in obtaining a prescription card can visit the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce website at to print out a pre-activated card. Residents without internet access can also pick up cards at the chamber office and at various health centers, hospitals, clinics, businesses, and other card distribution sites that are being set up across the county. Pat Nowak, executive director at the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce states “The Sylvania Chamber is aware that health care costs are escalating rapidly and many businesses and residents do not have prescription cards. Our free prescription discount card will be a way to help the local community”. The Sylvania Area Rx Card has no restrictions to membership, no income or age limitations, and residents are not required to fill out an application. The Sylvania Area Rx Card was launched to help uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. However, the program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high-deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for non-covered drugs. The Sylvania Area Rx Card is a solution to the confusing maze of prescription programs that have appeared in recent years. Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income limitations. You can download a free card and search drug pricing and participating pharmacies at

you are invited to attend Radiation. Radiation meets each Wednesday at McCord Road Christian Church. The junior high ministry (for seventh and eigth grade students) meets from 6:308:30 p.m. and the senior high ministry meets from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Both meet on the second floor in the youth area of the church. For more information you can email MRCC’s Student Ministry Pastor, Dave O’Vell at or check out the website at Plans are already on the way for next year.

UF to host “DNA Day” for high school students on Jan. 28
FINDLAY- The University of Findlay will host a DNA Day on Friday, Jan. 28, for high school students who are interested in the natural sciences and laboratory research, teaching them how to perform tests done on the popular CSI television shows. “We are going to start by teaching them some of the skills that a DNA technician in a laboratory would use,” said Christopher White, instructor of biology and laboratory coordinator. “Then they will actually run some DNA tests themselves; our scenario is that the students are DNA techs in a CSI lab and the team has brought in some samples from a crime scene. They are actually going to perform the lab tests and give the team the information they need to proceed with their case.”
