Last week, four Sylvania siblings decided they wanted to collect money for people affected by the devastation in Japan. They got creative with their mission and stood by King road with homemade signs reading “honk for Japan.” For each car that honked, the siblings donated 10 cents. They received 240 honks and donated $24 of their own money to Japan. Their parents and grandparents matched their donation. The siblings said they had fun and felt like they were helping others at the same time. The four siblings are carter, riley, anderson and campbell Sattler, children of Stacey Sattler and Jason Eggerstorfer.

Northview, Southview coaches reflect on 2010-11 basketball season
By Scott Grau Herald Writer SYLVANIAThe scorebooks have closed on this year’s basketball seasons for the girls and boys teams from Southview and Northview but the head coaches from each respective school have fond memories of the season and high hopes for their program’s futures. Northview girl’s basketball head coach Jerry Sigler’s Lady Kats captured a second consecutive Northern Lakes League title with a 13-1 conference record (18-4 overall) and made it to the district semi-finals before bowing out to a strong and talented Notre Dame Academy team. “I though that we had an outstanding year,” Sigler said. Northview was paced by junior guard Miriam Justinger, whom Sigler considers to be one of the best players in Northwest Ohio. Justinger, a three-year starter for the Lady Kats, led the NLL in scoring averaging 16.8 points per game. For her efforts, she was named to the All-NLL first team, All-Toledo Blade team, the Division I All-District first team, and the All-Ohio third team. Junior guard Skylar Rose and junior forward Jessica Jessing joined Justinger among the scoring leaders for of the NLL with 11.0 and 10.1 scoring average respectively. Jessing also received AllNLL first team honors and was named to the to the All-District third team. Rose was named to the AllNLL second team and received special mention for all district honors. Seniors Valerie Sohasky, who will be playing basketball at Indiana Wesleyan University next year, and Katelynn McCoy were in the top echelon of rebounding leaders in the league pulling down 6.4 and 5.9 caroms per game respectively. Coach Jerry Sigler commented that senior Tori Busby, who was first off of the bench this season was invaluable as the team’s “sixth man.” “She did a tremendous job for us this year,” Sigler stated. Southview head coach Marc Jump considers this past season to be successful as well. His young Cougars compiled an 11-10 overall record and finished 8-6 in the Northern Lakes League. “It was a winning season,” Jump said. “We had a young group of kids with only three seniors on the roster. We worked hard to get better every day.” Jump commented that before the season started his team lacked experience in “big game” situations. However, as the season unfolded the Cougars found themselves playing in plenty of big games. Seven contests were decided in overtime or by three points or less in regulation play. “We had some real thrilling basketball this year,” Jump stated. Jump reflected that his team was literally three possessions away from being 11-3 in the league. Junior Allen Gant, who averaged 15.3 points per game throughout the season, was named to the All-NLL first team and All-District third team. The three-year starter, who also grabbed over seven rebound a game, was named as the team’s Most Valuable Player. Senior De’Nard Pinckney (8 points and 3 rebounds per game) was named to the AllNLL second team and received special mention for all district honors. Todd Bostater, Southview girl’s basketball head coach, credits senior Taylor Hall and sophomore Lexi Lopez for stepping up to share point guard duties and running the team after losing Ariel Gaston, who transferred to Start for her senior year and starting point guard Andrea Abouahmed to an ACL tear five games into the season. With Hall and Lopez jointly commanding the team, the Lady Cougars finished their campaign with a 13-9 overall record and an 8-6 NLL conference mark. The team captured a sectional title with a thrilling 53-52 overtime win over Central Catholic before falling to state semi-finalist Start in the district semi-finals. Lopez led the Lady Cougars in both scoring and rebounding averaging 13.6 points and over six rebounds a game placing her among the leaders in both categories in the league. Her play on the hardwood garnered Lopez a spot on the All-NLL first team and All-District third team. Hall, averaging better than 10 points a contest, was a second team All-NLL selection and received special mention for all district honors. At the team’s seasonending awards ceremony, Lopez received the offensive player of the year award while Hall was named the defensive player of the year. Senior Olivia O’Reilly received the coach’s award. Terry Shadle, head coach of the Northview boy’s basketball team, wrapped up his third year at the helm with a 4-17 record (2-12 NLL). “We were pretty inexperienced all year. We truly didn’t have a very much varsity experience and it showed,” Shadle stated. According to Shadle, senior forward Jacob Sturt possessed the most varsity experience on the young Wildcat team. Sturt finished the season averaging over eight points per game and better than five rebounds. His teammate, sophomore guard Conner Hartnett, led the team in scoring with a 10.5 points per game average. Hartnett was named to the All-NLL second team and received special mention in the all district balloting. Shadle stated the highlight of the season, especially for his senior players, was the Wildcats’ 52-51 overtime win over cross-town rival Southview. “It was the final home game for the seniors and what a great way for them to end their careers in the last home game of the season,” Shadle said. Since high school sports is a constant revolving door of players entering and exiting a program, Southview head coach Marc Jump commented on bidding farewell to his senior players stating, “You always appreciate the efforts that the guys have given for four years. These seniors are no different. They have been a big part of everything that we have done and who we are and we are going to really miss them. Head coaches Sigler, Bostater, and Shadle echoed this sentiment. Looking forward, all of the coaches said the future looks bright for their respective programs and they will be hard at work in their gyms all summer long working out next year’s teams.

Full of Beans
The Sylvania history books state there was an annual Bean Festival from the late 60s to the late 70s. Not having grown up here, I wondered what that was all about. Why beans? Amused, I imagined a bean queen. So, I started researching this event and discovered, among other things, there was indeed a bean queen each year! The Allen V. Smith Inc. company was a bean packing and processing plant in Sylvania. It was built in 1951 adjacent to the railroad behind the Southbriar shopping center. It was located here because of its proximity to nearby farmers and was Sylvania’s only local industry at the time. They packed beans under the label Smith Old York and others. 26 varieties of beans, barley and split peas were handled at the plant, over 1.5 million pounds processed per month. In a 1973 Sylvania Sentinel article, they paid homage to the bean, explained why there was a bean festival since 1969 and included this anecdote: “A recent incident at the plant

Thinking about yesterday
By Sheila Painter

Each year, four Toledoarea residents are recipients of local Jefferson Medallion Awards for extraordinary community service. Jefferson Award 2011 winner Richard R. Faist, CPA, has served on the COMPASS Corporation for Recovery Services Board of Directors for over 40 years. COMPASS nominated Faist for his long-term commitment efforts to combat substance abuse in Northwest Ohio. Dick has continuously served on the COMPASS Board of Directors since 1970, overseeing the organization’s fiscal operations as head of the Finance Committee and as a member of the Executive Committee. COMPASS is a Lucas County-based provider of inpatient and outpatient alcohol and drug abuse treatment for 2,500 men and women a year, plus free HIV education and testing services for another 2,000 area residents annually. Most COMPASS funding comes from various public entities, including Medicaid, and the majority of those treated by COMPASS could not afford treatment from other providers. By making sure that

future, Faist has selected and is grooming a younger associate from Clifton Gunderson to succeed him. Faist has given profusely to Toledo, serving as past Chairman of AAA Northwest Ohio and as a trustee of the Servant Leadership Center, Lourdes College and St. Vincent Medical Center Foundation. He currently serves on the Board of Notre Dame Educational Foundation; the Board of St. John’s Jesuit High School, where he also serves on the Executive Committee and as Chairman of the Finance Committee; the Finance Council of the Toledo Catholic Diocese; the Finance Committee of the United Way of Greater Toledo; and on the Finance and Endowment Committees of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Sylvania. Faist and other 2011 winners Duke Wheeler, Kim Holmes and Mary Lou Leonard will be honored at a breakfast ceremony at the Toledo Club on Apr. 1. One of the four will be nominated for a national Jefferson Award.

brought about a temporary distaste for beans for one employee. He looked at the railroad car of loose beans and thought it would be fun to jump in. It wasn’t. Buried to the neck, he had to be pulled out by a tow chain and shivered for two hours afterwards, not realizing how cold a bean could get.” Held on the grounds of the Democratic Club on Centennial Road in the early years, the festival was a nonpartisan affair and a true community event. In 1972, it was held at Whetstone Park behind Starlite Plaza. The programs were planned by the Sylvania Jaycees, St. Francis Guild and Knights of Columbus. In 1974, Sylvania’s mayor Warren Schuster had the great idea to have Orson Bean as master of ceremonies for the bean festival. The famous celebrity was duly invited. Alas, he couldn’t make it, as he was appearing on

eighteen talk shows that week! Each year boasted different menus, activities and entertainment. Served was, of course, bean soup, using an old farm recipe, and bean dinners. There was also cornbread, spaghetti and other delectables. There were dunking booths, creative dried bean dish contests, parades, sky divers and more. The multi-day celebrations were quite fun, apparently, and Sylvania residents threw themselves into the festivities enthusiastically (but not into the railroad car!). Miss Bean was selected from thirteen candidates by “an impartial panel of mayor, grocer, beautician and editor.” I assume these were various young ladies from Sylvania schools and they probably wore the title proudly, as well as lovely gowns, tiaras and sashes. Hey, I just had a thought. Were you or a member of your family ever a bean queen or runner-up? Share your memories by emailing to SylvaniaHistory@gmail. com or calling 419-3189632 and it could appear in a future column!

Flower hospital recognizes National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
SYLVANIA- More than 100,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year. It is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States but can be cured over 90 percent of the time if caught early. In recognition of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and in an effort to heighten awareness about the importance of early detection, Flower Hospital is encouraging community members to schedule a colorectal screening. Colorectal cancer is a malignant tumor arising from the inner wall of the colon. Most colon cancers begin as polyps, abnormal growths on the wall of the colon that can become cancerous over time. There are several risk factors for colorectal cancer that include anyone age 50 or older, African-American descent, poor diet, obesity, family history of colon cancer, or history of bowel disease and smoking. “It’s important to be screened for colorectal cancer since it is frequently symptom free until the disease is more advanced,” Andrea Henderson, RN, Flower Hospital Endoscopy, said. “Once symptoms such as bloody stool, abdominal pain, change in bowel habits or unexplained weight loss occur the chance for a cure is significantly reduced.” A colonoscopy is the only screening test that enables a



Student wins third place nation’s largest high school essay contest
ARLINGTON, VA—A Maumee Valley Country Day School student beat out more than 24,000 other participants for a top spot in America’s largest high school essay contest conducted by the Bill of Rights Institute. Representing the Great Lakes Region, Carolyn Sowa, a junior at Maumee Valley Country Day School, earned third place and $500 in the fifth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The national competition is sponsored by the Bill of Rights Institute, an educational nonprofit based near Washington, D.C. Sowa‘s sponsoring teacher, Josh Lavetter-Keidan, received a matching cash prize. In addition to the cash prizes, Sowa and Lavetter-Keidan also won paid trips to the nation’s capital, where they were honored on March 22 at an awards gala emceed by Juan Williams and featuring a keynote address by John Stossel. The Washington, D.C. trip also included a Capitol Hill luncheon and tours of the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court and National Archives. “The Being an American Essay Contest encourages students to see how vital it is to the future of our country and Constitution that they live out key civic values every day,” Bill of Rights Institute vice president of education programs Jason Ross said. “By thinking about the civic values evident in our Founding documents and in the lives of American heroes, students can begin to see how their own actions are significant in supporting the experiment in self-government started by our Founders.” More than 80,000 students attending public and private high schools, and homeschooled students from all 50 states, have participated in the Being an American Essay Contest to date, with nearly half-a-million dollars in prize money being awarded to winning students and their teachers. “The Being an American Essay Contest is a wonderful way to awaken students’ interest in the ideas of the American Founding. The Stuart Family Foundation is honored to be one of the Contest’s supporters,” Stuart Family Foundation executive director Truman Anderson said. To participate, students were asked to share their thoughts on American citizenship by

physician to see the colon directly and allows polyps to be removed without surgery. It is the preferred and most effective screening option for colorectal cancer. Colonoscopies are extremely safe when performed by a skilled endoscopist. “The good news for patients is that the new healthcare reform policy requires insurance plans to now cover preventative services, including colonoscopies, without requiring a co-pay,” Henderson said. “However it is still recommended that you contact your insurance company to authorize a screening before scheduling an exam” For more information about Flower Hospital, visit

Central Catholic technology director featured at conference
NASHVILLE- Central Catholic High School director of technology Chris Hamady of Sylvania was a featured presenter at the Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) conference in Nashville, Tennessee on March 11. This international conference, which was held from March 7-11, focused on information and instructional technologies in faculty and staff development. Mr. Hamady copresented with Central Catholic Board technology chairman Dr. Berhane Teclehaimanot, who is a professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Toledo. Their presentation was titled “Designing a Media Production Facility: A Model for 21st Century Education.” In 2009, Central Catholic created a fully digital media production and recording studio in one of its classrooms. The studio is home

answering the following question: “What civic value do you believe is most essential to being an American?” By encouraging students to consider and weigh American values, the Essay Contest serves as a key part of the Bill of Rights Institute’s mission to educate young people about the words and ideas of America’s Founders, the liberties guaranteed in our Founding documents, and how our Founding principles continue to affect and shape a free society. In her winning essay, Sowa selected “integrity” as the civic value topic of her essay and thought Abraham Lincoln, the great emancipator and preserver of the Union, most embodied the American character. In her essay, Sowa wrote, “Freedom without integrity is like a building without a foundation; it cannot stand. Among all American civic values, it is, therefore, upon integrity that we must lay our strongest emphasis.” More information on the Being an American Essay Contest can be found at www. Copies of winning essays and photographs of students are available by request.

The Week Ahead: Apr. 3 through Apr. 9, 2011 Aries (March 21-Apr. 19) This is a great time for you to put your proposals on the table at work. If you don’t have a job, this is a great time to get your resume out there or look into going back to school. This is a time of learning and growth. The things that have held you back are no longer present. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) Right timing is everything and this is the week for you when it comes to communication. Whatever you have wanted to communicate to family members, a partner or even in business, this is the time to do it. Whether in an email, phone call or faceto-face, get your words out. Gemini (May 21-June 21) You might feel tested this week by family members. There are a lot of things going on inside of you right now that may rattle you. Just know that shake-ups are often the releasing of something old and creating something new from a space of purity. Cancer (June 22-July 22) If you have children, they may express to you some of their needs. They actually would like to spend more time with you and are trying to express the confusion they are feeling. If you don’t have children, it may be your parents who need to spend more time with you. It’s important to balance your time between responsibilities and taking care of you. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It’s all about you this week and you love that. Show people where you stand and the success that comes from your gifts. Express your talents. The more you get out there and connect, the more things fall into place with job opportunities and relationships. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) Relationships are on an upswing this week if you make yourself available to them. This is an opportunity for a new romance or new friendships to enter your life. You may also find yourself letting go of some old relationships that no longer serve your highest good. Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) You are going to feel very busy this week like your world is spinning. It’s going to be important right now to keep your balance. Rest, nourishment and play are all important. So, as you start your week, look at your schedule and make sure you have clarity. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) There are new opportunities on the horizon as you take your gifts and move forward. The most important relationship has been the one you have with yourself. Let go of fear and start communicating with others. This is a time of forward movement for you. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Now that you are feeling more organized, what are you going to do with it? Get your plans out and take a look at your options. This is a good time for discussions with your partner whether in business or your personal life because you’ll easily get your point across. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Relationship issues have been challenging but you will be feeling better now that you are in a better space. You may find people are more apt to compliment you than pull you down. It’s important to stand your ground and tell people how you honestly feel. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This is a crazy time right now so slow down and take a deep breath. There are things facing you that you must deal with. Trust the process and trust the people around you. Even though things feel overwhelming, just know that everything is going to work out. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) This is a great time for communication with the people that you love. Don’t be afraid to speak you mind, but just be careful while you are speaking it that you are using discernment in your words. This is also a good time to do some writing and be creative.

Sylvania City Schools named to AP Achievement List
SYLVANIA- Sylvania City Schools is one of fewer than 400 school districts in the nation being honored by the College Board with a place on its AP Achievement List for opening AP classroom doors to a significantly broader pool of students, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher. From 2008 to 2010, the Sylvania City Schools has increased the number of students participating in AP from 234 to 278, while improving the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher, the score typically needed to earn college credit, from 80% in 2008 to 83% in 2010. It should be noted these figures exclude participation and performance in AP Spanish language exams. The AP Achievement List is made up of all school districts that are simultaneously expanding opportunity and improving performance, so even low-performing districts are included if they have been able to maintain or improve scores while expanding access. The list includes 388 school districts representing 43 states, with California’s 37 districts on the list representing the largest number of districts from a single state, followed by Michigan with 29 districts and Pennsylvania with 28 districts. “Participation in college-level AP courses can level the playing field for underserved students, give them the confidence needed to succeed in college, and raise standards and performance in key subjects like science and math,” College Board President Gaston Caperton said. “The AP Achievement List districts are defying expectations by expanding access while enabling their students to maintain or improve their AP Exam scores.” Many U.S. school districts have focused on expanding access to AP courses as part of a strategy for fostering college readiness. While these efforts have resulted in more students earning scores of 3 or better — the score typically cited as a “qualifying” or “successful” score because the majority of U.S. colleges and universities provide college credit or advanced placement for this score — these efforts have also resulted in more students now earning scores of 1 or 2. Accordingly, there has been a slight decline since 2001 in the percentage of AP students scoring a 3 or better, a decline that is to be expected in any program attracting a broader cross-section of students. That said, helping more students learn at a higher level and earn higher AP scores is an objective of all members of the AP community, from AP teachers to district and school administrators to college professors. Many are experimenting with a variety of initiatives and strategies to determine how to expand access and improve student performance simultaneously. “These districts are living proof that when access to AP is provided for the range and breadth of prepared and motivated students, districts can achieve even higher learning outcomes for their students — and the opportunity for so many more to earn college credit and placement — than when

SYLVANIA- The theme of Sylvania Franciscan Academy’s 17th annual charity auction on March 19 was Derby Day at SFA. Chaired by Tim and Diane Brunner with co-chairs Jim and Linda Knepp, the action began promptly at 6:00 p.m. Sweet Pea the race horse, owned by Tom and Michelle Glanville, greeted attendees outside the Franciscan Center at Lourdes College, setting the pace for a lively evening.

Attendees included Dick and Robin LaValley, Dan and Kristine LaValley, Tom and Pam Win, Robert and Diane Tankoos, Dan and Cynthia Pipoly, Ed and Manar Nahhas, Bob and Linda Helmer, and Joe and Julia Young. Before dinner, Dr. Richard Kohler, SFA headmaster, and Sister Mary Jon Wagner, OSF, presented two awards. This year’s St. Clare Award for Philanthropic Giving went to Mr. and Mrs. Richard LaValley, Sr., for their outstanding contributions to the SFA Endowment Fund. Dr. Kohler also thanked The LaValley Foundation and The John Jacob Foundation for establishing The Jake Thornton Art Project in memory of SFA graduate Jake Thornton. Recipients of the 2011 St. Damian Award for Leadership are Paul Geha and Laurie Adams for their superb dedication to and support of SFA athletics. Former SFA principal JoAnn Tallarico honored kindergarten teacher Camille Jankowski, a 22-year-veteran of the school, announcing a scholarship in her name. Taking over the microphone, auction emcee Tom Amstutz got the bidding under way to finance the new award. Parents were quick to raise their paddles in gratitude for Jankowski’s long service.

bad play and finish with a 12-18 overall record. “As a coach, you always want to see a better win/loss record,” Smith said. “At 12-18, I can say I am happy with how our first year turned out. I’m proud of how our team fought this season. No matter if we were out-manned or out-coached, the team kept fighting. I am a little disappointed in our lack of leadership this year. Some of the older players didn’t step up the way I thought they would and our younger players really had no one to look to. Leadership will come in time.” Going into the year, Coach Smith did not want to put any expectations on how the season would turn out. “I didn’t want to put any expectations on the court for our first year,” Smith said. “All my expectations came off the court. If you run a good program off the court, it will usually lead to good things on the court.”

Lourdes men’s volleyball signs first player
SYLVANIA- Lourdes College has made history again by signing its first male volleyball player. Lance Wiles of Gahanna Lincoln High School in Gahanna, Ohio signed his letter of intent to play volleyball at Lourdes College. “I chose Lourdes because of the people that make up the environment,” Wiles said. “I felt like I was a member of the Lourdes family already. I heard positive things about both the school and the coaches and I thought it would be an amazing feeling knowing that I

Lourdes did have some key highlights during the season. They Gray Wolves opened the season on a high note with victories at Indiana Tech University in Ft. Wayne, IN and at Concordia University in Ann Arbor, MI. Lourdes also beat then #25 Indiana University-East in the Canton Comfort Inn Tournament at Malone University on Dec. 18. The biggest win of the season came Nov. 23 when they Gray Wolves played their home opener against Madonna University out of Livonia, MI. Lourdes was down by 20 at halftime but came from behind and won 65-62 in the closing seconds. It was the perfect way for the men’s team to be welcomed not only into the Lourdes community but the surrounding communities as well. Some of the standouts this season were John Washington, John Willhite and John Brown. Washington led the team

with 395 points averaging 13.9 points per game. He also led the team with 79 assists. Willhite led the Gray Wolves with 148 rebounds and 61 steals. He also led the team with four double-doubles and was second in scoring with 297 points. Brown led the team with 24 blocks. He was second in rebounds with 113 and was third in scoring with 201 points. The Gray Wolves now head into the offseason and have a lot of time to prepare for next season. Coach Smith hopes the team can continue to improve and focus on playing a more consistent game of basketball. “We can’t play one good half and one bad half of basketball and expect to remain competitive,” Smith said. “If we can put together a complete game we will be more successful.” Though the first season was full of ups and downs and unknowns, the future remains bright for this young team.

Lance Wiles recently made history by becoming the first player to sign with the Lourdes men’s volleyball team.
