Wind farms discussed at city council meeting
By Mike McHone Herald Writer Proposed wind farms in southeastern Michigan have been met with support and protests in Riga Township, Ogden Township, Blissfield Township and Whiteford Township. Now, the debate comes to Sylvania. At the Sylvania city council meeting on Jan. 18, Kevon Martis of Riga Township and Josh Nolan of Sylvania met with Sylvania city council to give their views on the wind farms. Their views are not in support of the wind turbines. “We’re here representing the Interstate Informed Citizens Coalition (IICC), which is a group of residents that is concerned about the proposed industrial wind turbine project just across our boarder,” Nolan said. According to Nolan, an attorney for the IICC, there are three different companies vying to install the wind farms in Riga, Palmyra and Ogden Townships. “They are seeking to put in 250 turbines that are 493 feet tall,” Nolan said. “There’s grave concern from the residents in Riga and the surrounding townships, as well as the citizens in Sylvania.” According to Nolan, the biggest concern is currently there is a study out of Chicago that shows residential values for homes and properties near a wind farm have seen value depreciation by 20 and sometimes up to 45 percent. “Considering the state of the economy here, no one can afford to lose 45 percent off the value of their home,” he said. Riga Township is currently in the process of drafting their zoning ordinance for the wind farms. Originally, Martis was on the Riga Township board and had drafted an ordinance against the wind farms to “protect” the residents in the area. “I wrote language in the original ordinance that would’ve set a 35 decibel noise limit for any adjoining jurisdiction or our own jurisdiction,” Martis said. “A 35 decibel limit would’ve kept those turbines about 1 or 1.2 miles away from residential areas.” The developers of the wind turbines, according to Martis, contested this and

were not happy with it being in the original draft. Another concern that Mr. Nolan raised was that of “shadow flicker.” Mr. Nolan told the board that during the evening, when the sun is setting, the sun’s rays come from behind the blades of the turbine and create a strobe light effect. Mr. Nolan said that many residents who live near a wind farm in the Mackinac area in northern Michigan have issued multiple complaints about this effect. “Although these are being touted as great devices for our economy and for our region, the jury is still out as to whether they’re actually efficient uses of our resources, and whether or not they can generate the green electricity that everyone is seeking,” Nolan said. Council president Todd Milner asked Martis and Nolan who in Palmyra and the other townships was in favor of the wind farms. “It depends who you ask,” Martis said. He added saying that there are nearly 1,500 registered voters in Riga Township but only 21 farmers signed leases to have the wind turbines installed on their property. “I don’t believe they represent the majority of the people but they do control somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 acres of ground.” Martis also said that some of the farmers who signed leases now feel as if the wind developers were not as forthcoming with information about the effects wind farms could have on a person’s hearing or property. “Some support is beginning to wane,” Martis said. The IICC will be holding a meeting at Blissfield Middle School in Blissfield on Feb. 5 to give their view about wind farms. All residents and government officials in the Sylvania and surrounding areas are invited. The event starts at 8 a.m. and will include guest speakers, presentations about the science and economics behind wind farm technology, and the effect wind turbines can have on people. A question and answer session is also slated to take place. The Sylvania Utilities and Environment Committee will meet on Friday in council chambers to further discuss the wind farm project, regulations for illegal discharge and 1/21/11 10:52 AM Page 1 controls, and other items.

Southview showing events live online
approached by, a Kentucky-based company that provides high schools with a free website that features schedules, rosters, statistics, photos and videos. The company told Southview about broadcasting athletic events over the Internet. Southview currently uses the iHigh. com website to post athletic schedules and general news. Gillespie stated several high schools in the Toledo area are now broadcasting their athletic events live and gives credit to Whitmer as being the first school in the area to embrace the new technology. “We started talking to [] about a year ago” Gillespie stated regarding the streaming video broadcasting capabilities. “We had been messing around with it and tonight we tried it.” Gillespie explained that the school is using the athletic department’s existing highend digital video camera to capture the action. The camera is mounted in a fixed position and is operated by students. A direct connection to the Internet is required. During the recent renovation of the Southview gym Internet connectivity was installed. A hard-wire connection to the digital camera allows the live images to be streamed to viewers anywhere that an Internet connection can be obtained. “Right now it’s just a picture of the game. We will flash up the score. It is just like a coach’s view of the game,” Gillespie said. Although there is presently no audio functionality, Gillespie acknowledge that eventually voice-over will be included. “It’s the future of what is going on right now. You’ve got ESPN3, which is doing all of this live broadcasting through the Internet,” Gillespie explained. “It’s another way

SYLVANIA- Sylvania St. Joseph parish pastor Reverend Dennis Metzger is among ten Diocesan priests who have received the title of “Monsignor” from Pope Benedict XVI. He received word of the honor from Bishop of Toledo Leonard Blair, who explained in a December 27 letter to Diocesan Catholics that he had written to the Papal Nuncio in Washington,Archbisop Sambi, who forwarded his request to Rome. He noted in that letter the title means the new monsignor has been made an honorary member of the pope’s own household as a honorary chaplain or prelate to the pope, in a centuries-old custom. Blair told Catholics, “My intention is to recognize the service of all our priests by honoring a few representatives out of the many who so faithfully teach, sanctify and shepherd the people of God. The fact that this is a papal honor also underscores, on the occasion of the Diocesan Centenary, the close bonds of communion between our local church and the Holy Father in Rome.” Metzger is a product of one of the smallest parishes in the Diocese (Bethlehem Sacred

Heart parish), and notes with pride that one of the other priests to receive the honor is Father Michael Hohenbrink, a classmate from Bethlehem. He said, “We are two of the six boys in our graduating class of nine students. We are sons of one of the smallest parishes in the diocese, and now pastor the two largest parishes!” He entered the seminary in 1966, after graduating form Campion Jesuit High School (a Jesuit boarding school in Prairie DuChien, WI). He spent eight years in the seminary in Cincinnati before his ordination in 1974. He worked as an associate pastor at St. John Parish in Delphos, OH and taught at the parish high school. From 1979-1981, he studied in Rome and earned a graduate degree in moral theology. He notes that he is the fifth priest from his family line. There are two Jesuits, one Missionary of the Sacred Heart, and Monsignor Edmund Widmer, who was the pastor of St. Agnes parish for nearly 40 years. Parishioners in several parishes have come to know Metzger as pastor. From 19821991, he was the pastor at Blessed Sacrament Church in West Toledo. He served in that same capacity at St. Patrick of Heatherdowns Church in South

Reverend Dennis Metzger recently received the title Monsignor from Pope Benedict XVI. Toledo from 1991-2002, and as pastor of Holy Trinity Parish from 2002-2008. He has been pastor at St. Joseph in 2008, when he was named to replace retiring pastor Richard Wurzel, who had served there for 18 years. St. Joseph Parish is the religious home to 3800 families and 11,000 members. Metzger included a note about his new title in the parish bulletin on Jan. 9. He wrote, “My feelings upon being informed of this honor are somewhat mixed. It is humbling but also somewhat embarrassing. I say that because

I have always maintained that naming monsignors in a local church is not a good idea, as it is not helpful for the morale of the diocesan clergy. It is not so much a matter of who receives the honor, but of who doesn’t receive it.” He continued, “I can immediately think of dozens of dedicated, faithful priests in our diocese, including my present and past associate pastors, who are richly deserving of such recognition. Also, I have no desire to return to an earlier era of triumphalism and clericalism in the Church, and I hope that you would not see this honor as such. The greatest honor I have received is simply to share in the priesthood of Jesus Christ, living and working with thousands of faithful members of the Body of Christ for the past 37 years. I have been so blessed to have been able to minister with a legion of talented and faithful associates, religious women and lay staff members who have supported me and helped me to grow in faith.” Metzger and other new Monsignors will be honored at a 6:00 p.m. Vespers service at Rosary Cathedral on Collingwood Boulevard on Jan. 30.

Students get new books through Lourdes Education Department
Students and alumni in Lourdes’ Department of Education have been working to provide the Toledo Catholic Diocesan School Queen of Apostles with a variety of new books this year. The student organization First Book – Lourdes College and the Lourdes Alumni Association Education Branch have both made donations to the school. First Book provided funds for teachers to order new books of their choosing and the Education Branch has donated a collection of children’s books. “I selected a variety of books on sports and other topics that our eighth graders have personal interests in,” shares teacher Mrs. Mary Daney. “Our goal is to encourage them to read outside of the classroom.” Through Lourdes’ First Book program, Mrs. Daney added more than a dozen new titles to her classroom such as Encyclopedia Britannica’s Myths, Legends and Folktales and Religions Around the World, Rich Wallace’s Winning Season series Curveball and Southpaw and Fred Bowen’s Hardcourt Comeback. Queen of Apostles sixth and seventh grade classes also received new books through the First Book-Lourdes Col-

VIEWPOINT Type O-negative blood drops to critical levels An ancient pastime
WEDNESDAY, January 26, 2011 The supply of type O-negative blood at the local American Red Cross has dropped to critical levels in recent days, as winter weather has canceled blood drives and prevented potential donors from safely traveling to give blood. The Red Cross needs eligible donors with type O-negative blood to make a blood donation appointment now. Currently the local Red Cross is not able to fully fill requests from hospitals for type O-negative, and is only being shipped to hospitals where it is needed most while supplies are critically low.Type O-negative blood is always in high demand because it is the universal type and can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Since the beginning of December winter weather has negatively affected blood donations despite many donor recruitment efforts. “While all blood types are needed on an ongoing basis, we urge those who know they are type O-negative to make and keep appointments to give blood as soon as possible,” said Dr. Nurjehan Quraishy, Medical Director of the American Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region. “Your donation could help save the life of someone’s child, mother, brother or friend. When you come to give, you help make everyday medical treatments possible.” Recent winter weather has forced the cancellation of hundreds of Red Cross blood drives in the Midwest and Eastern parts of the country, causing a shortfall of more than 8,000 blood donations. In Ohio alone, 33 blood drives have been canceled and weather has caused low donor turn out at many drives that are being held. Across Ohio the Red Cross currently has a total shortfall of more than 1,200 blood donations. The Red Cross is working to boost type O-negative donations by alerting current donors in their system through emails and phone calls. Donors of all types are needed year-round. If you don’t know your type, giving blood is a great way to find out. There is also a need for people to give platelets during what is called an apheresis donation. A machine collects only your platelets and returns the rest of your blood back to you. Many patients who need platelets are undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplant and have weakened immune systems. To find out where you can give blood or platelets and to schedule your appointment, go to or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1800-733-2767) for additional information.

priority was not either. Two years ago they passed a 2.89 bond issue to rebuild and add on to every school. They knew at that time they were going to need to ask for an operating levy soon. Now they need a 4.9 levy which is a 7.79 increase in taxes in 2 years. If you look at your taxes you will notice over 50% (give or take depending on your tax bracket) goes to the schools. That is a large amount from every family now. People are losing their jobs, their homes and having difficulty putting food on the table. The schools could have waited a few more years to do all the construction until

My husband and I moved here 15 years ago with our three children because Sylvania had a great reputation for schools. We always supported the schools. It is difficult to continue to support them and to see the struggles (again) that the schools are having with budget and deficit. Part of this problem has been brought on by the school board itself. True that Ohio does not support schools as they should. Obviously our states priority is not in education, but it seems our school board’s

the economy was in a better state. If they hadn’t just increased our taxes maybe people would be more likely to vote for the levy now. Obviously, the pretty schools were more important than having the funds to operate them. In order to pass their levy they always threaten to cut what is most important to parents and students. So thank the board for the pretty schools and for losing income by driving families to other school districts that are just as good!! D Moeller Sylvania, OH

choosing which one to act upon. When you do that, you will have positive mental energy on your side. It’s really about being open and going with the flow. Judge not unless you be judged and watch what happens.

Aries (March 21-Apr. 19) Be careful with finances. Things may feel up and down this week so it’s important to keep your money in your pocket. Even though you like to spend, spend, spend, it’s all about balance. When you balance you will find that things will come more abundantly. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) Whatever you have doubted is in the past and whatever you love will come facing you. That means that people are going to be asking you questions so be prepared to give some answers. Don’t sell it away like a salesman. It’s important to be truthful on all levels. Gemini (May 21-June 21) This week you will feel like the cat’s got your tongue but don’t worry. It’s just the Universe asking you to be a little silent. Take some time to relax and breathe. Try yoga or maybe even Tai Chi. Still your mind and listen so you really know who you are. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Allow long standing issues to rise to the surface so you can seem them as they really are. This is a time of completion and a time for moving forward in your life. It’s going to require forgiveness, strength and courage, but know everything will be okay. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Express your thoughts openly and honestly before

be comforting, but your words might be lasting. Pick your words carefully or there may be regret for a long time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t allow long standing issues to be tucked away anymore. Have the courage to release repressed thoughts you’ve been holding in. We don’t always have the right words, but when we go into our heart and trust from within, others will hear and understand. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This is a time for reflection, a time for stillness and also a time to figure out what is really important to you. Look at your experiences and understand the expectations you have placed on yourself and others. This is an important week for gaining mental clarity. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Get rid of negative thoughts this week. Send some time with your family and stop avoiding issues that have been building over the past couple of months. Listen to what they have to say and don’t be afraid to share what is going on inside your heart.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dealing with relationships this week will be difficult. Sometimes you think you know someone and then something changes. Don’t be afraid to say what you feel. Others may not always be accepting of that, but as long as it comes from a place of truth they will eventually understand. This is a great week to improve your relationships. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Things have been swirling around in five different directions and now it’s time to stay put. Stay home, sit, reflect and allow yourself to figure out what is really important to you. Purge the things that you don’t need. Observe, reflect and watch things manifest. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your moods are going in different directions. You have been busy building up a wall around yourself and not dealing with the emotions that are inside of you. Take time to open up and release that which doesn’t serve you. It’s important to remember who you are. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Work may be difficult this week and people at work may be difficult too. As a result, you may feel the need to speak your mind. But remember expressing your thoughts may
