Firefghters in Sylvania
battled a fre in a home on
Sylvania-Metamora Road
in the early hours Monday
morning. The home was
heavily damaged by the
fre. The two occupants
were treated at the scene
and transported to Flower
Hospital. Both were inside
the home when the fre
started and needed to escape
through the thick smoke. The
Sylvania Fire Department
encourages everyone to take
the time right now to check
and test their smoke detectors
to assure they are in working
order. More than 66 percent
of home fre deaths occurred
in homes without a working
smoke detector. A working
smoke detector can double the
chances of surviving a deadly
home fre. Anyone who cannot
afford a smoke detector should
contact the fre department at
419-882-7676.

Mid-May has brought
plenty of rainy days to
northwest Ohio, but the
weather improved long
enough on Thursday,
May 12, for merchants
in downtown Sylvania to
present Downtown Delights.
The sun was shining as
stores opened their doors to
welcome spring (and plenty
of shoppers and browsers)
to the businesses in the
downtown area. From 5:00-
8:00 p.m., Main Street was
flled with people enjoying
the music, refreshments,
and wine tasting at the
event promoting downtown
businesses.
Business owners joined
together to present a special
raffe of more than 30 prizes.
Visitors to the stores collected
signatures from several of
the businesses on a special
raffe card and were able to
qualify for the collection of
prizes. Some stores offered
free treats, special beverages,
and many guests made sure
to stop at Key Bank to pick
up Handel’s ice cream pops.
Heidi Schltz and Barb
Hickey enjoyed the pops,
noting that they were enjoying
the pleasant weather. The
West Toledo residents said
they were glad to see the sun
shining, and appreciated a
reason to be out enjoying the
outdoors.
In front of the Key Bank,
bank offcials Christine Abbot
and Edward McKinney were
passing out the pops (and
information about services
offered by the bank). In
front of the bank, McCord
Junior High School seventh
grader Carly Radebaugh was
playing the violin, a special
treat for those who stopped
to enjoy the ice cream with
the music.
Lisa Nowak and her
daughters Hailey and
Hannah, and her sister Cindy
Preston, spent a lot of time at
the Canterbury Home store.
They examined the furniture,
home décor, and oohed and
aahed over the bath products
and jewelry on display, and
Lisa exclaimed, “I love
everything in this store, and I
would buy it all if I could.”
Across the street, at
Jenna’s Restaurant, Neal
Golding enjoyed a Lebanese
beer, served with a lemon and
coarse salt around the rim.
“I am here for the Lebanese
food, and I am appreciating
the beer with the food,” he
explained.
He asked the bartender
about the Lebanese wines
and liquors served at the
restaurant, and said, “I
think it is great that there
is a restaurant like this
in Sylvania. We had my
daughter’s 18
th
birthday
party here, and Jenna’s is
going to cater her graduation
party.”
He looked around at the
full house in the restaurant
and added, “The kids at
her party really enjoyed the
food, and it looks like lots
of people who visit Sylvania
do, too.”
The Downtown Delights
event was the most recent
in a series of events in the
downtown area. Coming
Thursday, May 19 is the
unveiling of the Potting Pretty
fowerpots in downtown
Sylvania from 4:00-8:00
p.m., and the Sylvania Car
Show, hosted by K-100’s
Gary Shores, will happen on
Sunday, May 22, from 10:00
a.m.-3:00 p.m.

SYLVANIA- Despite a
wet track, intermittent rain
showers, and the constant
threat of thunderstorms the
Sylvania Southview boys track
and feld team ran away with
the Northern Lakes League
team meet championship at
Southview High School on
May 13.
First place fnishes in six
individual events and two
relay races contributed to
the Cougar’s overall team
point total of 151.50. The
Sylvania Northview boys
team, who captured the league
championship last year,
fnished in ffth place with
79.50 points.
In the girls meet, Sylvania
Northview (88 points) and
Southview (65 points)
fnished a distant third and
ffth respectively to perennial
powerhouse Perrysburg
(169.50 points).
Speedy freshman Malcolm
Johnson of Southview won
both sprint races clocking in at
11.14 seconds in the 100 meter
and 22.72 in 200 meter.
Southview teammates junior
J.Q. Bowers and freshman J.J.
Pinckney crossed the fnish
line in the 400 dash in frst
and second place with times of
50.61 and 50.85 respectively.
Senior Elijah Bias captured
the 300 hurdle event in 40.97
to help the Cougar cause.
In the jumping events
Southview senior David
Renner cleared the high jump
bar at 6-feet-4 to win the event
while Pinckney leaped 21-3.75
to take the top spot in the long
jump.
The Cougar quartet of
Johnson, Bowers, freshman
Perry Burks, and junior

In the feld events for the
girls, Northview freshman

Southview senior Jewlia Boose
captured the discus throw title
(109-10).
A new meet record was
established by Northview
junior Alison Work in the
1600 meter run. Her time of
5:03.63 bettered the decade-
old previous mark of 5:05.90
held by former Wildcat runner
Stephanie Ray in 2001.
Janelle Noe, a sophomore
from Northview, won the 300
hurdles event with a time of
46.01.
Work and Noe joined with

Make sure your
kids stay hydrated
Something as simple as drinking the proper
amount of water is critically important to the
health of our children. Kids who don’t drink
enough water are more likely to be cranky, feel
tired and tend to be less active.
To stay hydrated, it’s important to keep
these things
in mind:
• Frequent, smaller amounts of water
work best
• An orange, lemon or lime slice will add
color and favor
• If you feel thirsty, you’re probably
already dehydrated
Have your kids drink water before, during and
after any summer outdoor activity.
Avoid sipping any sweetened beverage, such as
fruit drinks, sodas and punches. They add extra
calories and sugars that can lead to obesity and
tooth decay. 100% fruit juice is OK at mealtime,
but between meals, water is best!

He arrived quite
unusually. He was found
late in the evening at a
church in the inner city
on January 31, 1996. The
temperature outside was
-15 and yet he seemed
excited to see a friend.
My decision was not
to take him as I had lost
a Shih Tzu in a fire the
previous year and in
spring we welcomed a
golden retriever puppy
named Conor. My sister,
however, insisted that the
dog be rescued. So into my
Jeep he went, filthy and
scared. He even refused
the Wendy’s hamburger I
purchased for him. Once
home, we could not take
him in the house as he
was filthy so we put him
the garage. But the golden
knew something was out
there; he paced back and
forth eager to connect
with the new visitor on the
other side of the door.
The next day we were
off to the veterinarian
who was shocked to find
a whole arsenal of worms
and skin welts. Obviously,
our new puppy friend had
been living on the streets
for quite some time and
would have died had he
not been rescued. The vet’s
bill was over $300 and
after the groomer added
her total, our new addition,
deemed a Shih Tzu, cost
more than purchasing a
dog from a breeder.
What to name him was
easy; when we met he
was so dirty that the name
Oscar, from the Sesame
Street character of the
same name that lived in
a garbage can, came to
mind. He fit the name and
when he was groomed
he often, if just for 10-
20 minutes, looked like
Oscar de la Renta but that
quickly faded when he
went outside and rolled in
the mud.
Oscar owned the world.
He thought himself a pit
bull and never cowered
to dogs even those ten
times his size. He would
approach with a welcoming
wag of his tail but if they
took an aggressive stance
he went right at them. He
wanted everyone to be his
friend, an unusual trait for
that breed of dog.
Since both he and
Conor were puppies,
they formed a bond that
lasted until Conor died. At
times Conor would pull a
squealing Oscar by his tail
down the hallway. Oscar
would then wait until the
bigger dog would fall
asleep before biting his
ear and racing to get under
the bed where he could not
be caught.
When Conor moved
away with my daughter,
Oscar was heartbroken -
but not for long. He now
realized he was king and he
owned the neighborhood.
No leash for him. He
wasn’t much of a walker
anyway. His domain was
three houses down and
back and his front yard.
You could yell your head
off for him to come and he
would feign deafness as he
lifted his paw and looked
off the other way.
He would kill for a
biscuit and until the day
he died he insisted on a
biscuit or a treat whenever
he would come in the
house, when we left and
came home, before his
bedtime and the first thing
in the morning; pretty
much the entire day.
His favorite perch was
on the front seat of the
boat where he would ride
around the lake barking
at the dogs on the shore,
particularly the three
poodles that lived in a big
house around the corner.
Once he even jumped
out of the boat to chase
a dog on the shore…he
soon remembered a little
too late that he was not a
strong swimmer and thank
goodness was saved by
someone who jumped into
save him.
He survived the
onslaught of three
grandchildren and several
nieces and nephews all
with perfect disdain
when they upset his daily
routine. Guests to our
home could be pestered
incessantly for a morsel of
their dinner. He always let
you know what he wanted
by whining quietly and
relentlessly.
The time flew by and
fifteen years later it was
difficult for him to see and
hear but his sense of smell
was amazing. He could
still wander three houses
down and back strictly on
instinct but he had trouble
walking and the steps were
now hard to manage.
He now choose to sleep
23 out of 24 hours waking
just for his biscuit breaks
and when we got home
after work he was at the
door waiting and would
follow us around as if he
knew time was fleeting.
What can you say about
a scruffy little character
that came into your life,
touched you gently with
his soul, ate about 20,000
biscuits and quietly slipped
away taking with him a
piece of your heart…we
will miss you. Everyone
who owns a pet can take
heart in the fact that they
love you unconditionally
and forever; give them a
biscuit from Oscar today.

The Week Ahead:
Aug. 24 through Aug. 30.
Aries
(March 21-April 19)
This is not a good moment for
making business decisions on gut
instincts, although this usually
works very well for you. Right
now, there are too many unknown
variables to be loose with your
cash, even if the information you
are analyzing sounds convincing.
Taurus
(April 20-May 20)
Expect communication to be
good this week, especially in your
relationships. Make sure you
spend some alone time with your
partner and clear the air.
Gemini
(May 21-June 21)
Right now, your physical
strength will be low. However,
your emotions will be on an all
time high leaving you feeling very
up and down.
Cancer
(June 22-July 22)
You are overwhelming the
people around you with your high
and low moods. Be careful not to
create long-term conflicts by
pushing people away from you.
Leo
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Lately you may have been
feeling like you are heading in
two directions at the same time.
So, now is the time to make a sen-
sible decision about what you
want to do with your life.
Virgo
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your emotional well-being
hinges on staying in a positive
mindset. You will be challenged
by people who question your
opinion, but stay strong in what
feels right to you.
Libra
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Family and friends are very
supportive of the changes that you
want to make in your life right
now. Spend some time clearing
your mind and feeling the life pur-
pose that only you can fulfill.
Scorpio
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Expect great things financially
this week. Watch for sales of any
kind but especially those in real
estate. Your time is good for asset
creation.
Sagittarius
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The week may get off to an
odd start but stay focused on just
today. By the end of the week you
will wonder why you were feeling
stressed at all. Plan a quick get-
away for the weekend or recon-
nect with a friend or loved one
from out of town.
Capricorn
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Balancing your time this week
will feel like a struggle. There are
responsibilities holding you back
from the things you really want to
do. Spend some time prioritizing
your projects and then rewards
yourself.
Aquarius
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Sometimes your friends and
co-workers distract your attention
and pull you away from your proj-
ects. Your caring nature wants to
help them but it’s important to
find balance between your goals
and helping everyone else accom-
plish their goals.
Pisces
(Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a great week for com-
municating with others. You will
feel like everyone is listening to
you and your energy will drawn
them in even closer. Start the
week ready to go and you will
enjoy the rewards by Friday.
Imagine if every week were this
easy how much you could accom-
plish.

Inner Views with Kimmie Rose Zapf
The end of May brings
a national holiday long
celebrated in Sylvania
to honor our veterans
who have bravely served
and protected America.
For well over 60 years,
Sylvania has had a
Memorial Day Parade and
Ceremonies on the last
Monday of May.
Many Americans have
served their country in the
armed forces. Many have
died in battle, and many
more are now growing
old and nearing the end
of their lives. Some have
served more recently in
Vietnam, the Middle East
or elsewhere around the
world. All these patriots
and those serving today
deserve our thanks and
acclaim.
The parade and services
are sponsored by our local
Veterans organizations
and assisted by the City
of Sylvania and Sylvania
Recreation. Over the
years, many of us have
participated in the parade
in one way or another.
The Northview High
School and Southview
High School bands are
always a part of the
parade and ceremonies,
and I remember how
excited I was to march
with the Sylvania High
School band on Memorial
Day, 1968.
The day begins at 9:00
a.m. with a memorial
ceremony at Toledo
Memorial Park near the
85 foot high Veterans
Memorial Monument.
Over 12,000 veterans are
laid to rest in the cemetery
and the American flag
posted on each veteran’s
grave creates a sea of
flags.
The parade leaves
Lourdes College at 10:00
a.m., heads north on
Main Street through the
downtown, and continues
on to Veterans Memorial
Field. An 11:00 a.m.
Memorial Day Service
follows at the north end of
Veterans Memorial Field.
There are five bronze
monuments at Veterans
Memorial Field honoring
those who served in five
wars and lists the names
all Sylvanians who died
in those wars. There is
also a tank and a Howitzer
cannon on display. In
addition, a bronze statue
cast in 1982 honoring
those veterans stands in
front of Sylvania City Hall
on Monroe Street, where
it is visible to thousands
of people every day.
The World War II Roll
of Honor previously on
display in the Burnham
Building was relocated
to City Hall last year and
is now on display in the
first floor lobby. The Roll
of Honor was restored
and rededicated last
year during a ceremony
attended by many of
Sylvania’s veterans who
attended Burnham High
School.
Memorial Day is
a patriotic day for all
of us. If not veterans
ourselves, nearly all of us
have a friend or relative
who served in the armed
forces or is serving today,
putting their lives at risk to
protect freedom. Further,
many of us have a relative
or know of a community
member who was injured
or killed in defense of
America. Memorial Day
is the day to honor these
heroes and to celebrate
our freedom.
I invite all of you to
join us in Sylvania on
Memorial Day. Sylvania
is a wonderful place for
families to gather, honor
our veterans and celebrate
America on Memorial
Day.
Memorial Day, 2011

They call themselves
the Frog Ladies. Easily
identifiable by the
frog pins on their pink
volunteer jackets, they
devote two mornings
a month bringing a bit
of happiness to Flower
Hospital’s smallest
patients.
In existence since
1982, they originally
met in members’ homes.
Then, a few years later,
the Flower Hospital
Auxiliary adopted the
group and they moved
to the hospital, where
they’ve met ever
since. These dedicated
volunteers sew adorable
frog shaped pillow
toys that are given to
children when they have
procedures done in the
outpatient area of the
hospital. Many a tear
rolling down a little
cheek has been halted by
the cheerful stuffed frog
laid into the crier’s arms.
Sherry Chesser
of surgical services
says “The children are
thrilled to get the stuffed
frogs, and parents are
so surprised that this is
a free service. We give
them out as fast as we
receive them!”
Working mostly from
donated new double
knit fabric and holiday-
themed cottons, the
women cut the fabric,
stuff the bodies, close
the openings, and sew
on decorative eyes while
they attend the in-hospital
meetings. Some do the
machine sewing at home
to assemble the bodies.
They joke that they play
the role of proctologist
or ophthalmologist,
depending on the task
while sewing the toys.
They are grateful for the
Auxiliary’s support in
covering expenses such
as thread and stuffing.
Many in the group are
getting on in years and
have health or ambulation
issues, so their number is
decreasing. Barely able
to keep up with demand,
the Frog Ladies are
hoping to add some new
members to the sewing
group. Ironically, sewing
skill is not required,
as stuffers and cutters
are always welcomed.
Embroiderers who can
sew a simple buttonhole
stitch are much needed,
notes Carol Spahlinger,
Frog Ladies co-chair.
The group seems to
be a well-kept secret, as
many Flower Hospital
staff are unaware of
their existence, but the
first and third Tuesday
mornings of each
month, these cheerful
ladies are happily busy
creating little washable
masterpieces in the
Flower Hospital atrium
area. Ever optimistic,
they muse that it would
be great to increase
production to include
distribution to the
hospital emergency room
area.
So now the call is
going out for volunteers
to join the group. Shirley
Bettinger, one of the
original group members,
admits “I don’t even
live in Sylvania, but I’m
involved because I enjoy
the friendship and the
opportunity to serve the
children.”
The women make
the frogs from 9 a.m.
to around 11:30, then
enjoy a free lunch in the
hospital cafeteria. They
quip that they work for
food and declare the
cafeteria offerings are
really quite delicious.
Flower Hospital
director of volunteer
services Barbara Arnold
says “It’s an easy process
to become a volunteer
at the hospital. We can
always use more helpers,
and this sewing group is
such a valuable part of
our hospital family.”
She invites anyone
interested in the Frog
Ladies group, or
many other volunteer
opportunities, to call her
at 419-824-1019.
I could close with a
statement about the Frog
Ladies being a ribbet-ing
group, but I won’t!

SYLVANIA- Lourdes
recently announced the
launch of a Master of Busi-
ness Administration (MBA)
program, beginning fall se-
mester 2011. The MBA at
Lourdes is designed for in-
dividuals who have recently
completed an undergraduate
business degree and is a full-
time, daytime degree pro-
gram that can be completed
in just one year.
“The MBA will really
round out our degree offer-
ings in business and leader-
ship,” Dean Ludwig, PhD,
Chair of Business & Leader-
ship Studies, said. “We have
the Master of Organizational
Leadership program, which
is an excellent option for
mid-career professionals in
both the for-proft and non-
proft sectors, and now the
MBA will give those who
are early in their career path
the ability to build their cre-
dentials before entering the
workforce. Lourdes’ pro-
gram is innovative in that it’s
designed to be completed in
half the time of many tradi-
tional MBA programs.”
Another unique compo-
nent of Lourdes’ MBA pro-
gram is that students will
participate in two immersion
experiences (similar to a co-
op or residency) as part of the
coursework. These culmi-
nating program experiences
are intrinsically linked with
one another, with students
required to take the interna-
tional immersion course and
then to choose one of four
options for the professional
immersion. Through the im-
mersion experiences, stu-
dents will learn the ins and
outs of the business world
through hands-on learning in
a real-world atmosphere.
“We’re really excited
about the international com-
ponent because it will open
new vistas for Lourdes’
study abroad options,” Dr.
Ludwig said.
For more information or
to apply for Lourdes’ MBA
program, visit gradschool.

Ramsdell, Director of Grad-
uate Admissions, at 419-
517-8881 or kramsdell@

Lourdes launches Master of Business Administration program 

SYLVANIA- The
Lourdes College wom-
en’s basketball team
had a big day today by
signing two new re-
cruits. Christine Lon-
ger and April Anderson
became the seventh and
eighth players to sign
with head women’s bas-
ketball coach Zareth
Gray’s squad.
Longer comes to
Lourdes from Danbury
High School near San-
dusky, Ohio where she
was a four-year starter
for the Lady Lakers.
“I chose Lourdes be-
cause I fell in love with
the campus,” Longer
said. “It’s so beautiful
here and everyone was
really nice and I knew
this was the place for
me.”
Longer can play mul-
tiple positions on the
court and is an outside
and inside theat. In
high school, she aver-
aged 11.4 points, 5.6
rebounds, and 1.4 steals
per game. For her ef-
forts on the hardwood,
she was a three-time 1
st

Team All-Toledo Area
Athletic Conference
player and was a two-
time AP Northwest Dis-
trict Honorable-Mention
player.
In the classroom,
Longer maintained a
3.4 grade point aver-
age and was a two-time
TAAC Academic Award
winner. She is deciding
whether to concentrate
in marketing or coun-
seling in her time at
Lourdes.
Anderson comes to
the Gray Wolves from
Whitmer High School in
Toledo.
“I chose Lourdes be-
cause I think it will be
a good experience for
me,” Anderson said. “I
feel like it was the best
fit for me and a good
place to be.”
Anderson stands at
an impressive 6’2 and
is an imposing force in
the post. She averaged
15 points per game in
high school with some
20 point games thrown
in the mix.
“I’m really looking
forward to seeing if the
team can mesh well,”
Anderson said. “I’m
hoping we can play well
as a team and become a
family.”
Anderson is looking
to study psychology in
her time at Lourdes.
The Lady Gray Wolves
are expected to make
their debut in the 2011-
2012 season. With eight
players now signed,
Coach Gray’s squad is
starting to take form.

It is the tradition at St.
Francis de Sales High School
to celebrate the feast day of its
patron by recognizing several
seniors as Knights of Honor.
In explaining the honor Fr.
Ron Olszewski said, “Two
virtues which are at the very
core of the spirituality of St
Francis de Sales are humility
and charity; humility in terms of
having the nature of a servant.”
He continued, “Don’t do
anything from selfish ambition
or from a cheap desire to boast,
be humble toward one another,
always considering others
better than your self. Look
out for one another’s interests,
not just your own.The second
virtue of charity or what we
would call brotherly love,” he
continued, “is the brotherhood
that so many of you speak of, as
the very thing that distinguishes
the Knights at St. Francis.”
Knights of Honor have
been perceived by others,
faculty and peers, to possess
the virtues of humility and
charity while attaining a
successful balance in the four
areas of the school’s program:
Academic, Spiritual, Social
and Physical Development. In
addition, the gentlemen chosen
should exhibit the virtues of
loyalty, leadership, kindness,
self-discipline, integrity and
perseverance. The men were
reminded that the higher the
honor or rank, the greater is the
call to humility and service to
others.
The following gentlemen
were knighted:
Frank Bonfiglio of Sylvania
is son of Paul and Robin
Bonfiglio and is a graduate of
Christ the King School. Frank
has demonstrated excellence
in the four pillars of St. Francis
by being an active member
of Campus Ministry, Student
Council, Collegium Honorum,
the National Honor Society,
and the baseball team. “My
best experience at St. Francis,”
he said, “was my service
trip to Appalachia. I love the
camaraderie that lies between
the halls of red and blue.” Frank
will graduate with high honors
having at least a 4.0 GPA and
he will attend Bowling Green
State University to pursue a
degree in secondary education.
Tyler Clark of Sylvania
is the son of Dave and Diane
Clark and is a graduate of St.
Joseph, Sylvania. He has been
very active while attending
St. Francis. He is the Student
Council Vice-President, a
member of Campus Ministry
and its core team, the Men’s
Chorus, and has performed
in the spring musicals. Tyler
is a member of the Interact
Club, which is the school’s
chapter of Toledo Rotary, and
Teen Institute which helps
educate youth about the risks
of drug and alcohol use. He
also works on the school’s TV
station, WSFK, and the sports
network, KSN as a broadcaster.
After obtaining a degree at
the University of Toledo in
communications he hopes to
be a sports analyst on ESPN.
“What I like at St. Francis is the
brotherhood. This place truly is
special,” he said.
Chris Gelardi of Toledo
is son of Bob and Nicole
Gelardi and is a graduate of
Gesu School. For four years at
SFS Chris has played football,
served on student council
and performed in the spring
musicals. He is a member of
the Campus Ministry and its
core team, the Men’s Chorus
and the National Honor
Society. Chris also participated
in the service trip to Appalachia
last summer to help repair and
paint houses for those in need.
“I love the brotherhood at St.
Francis de Sales,” he said.
He will graduate with highest
honors having a GPA of at least
4.3 and will attend Villanova
University to study liberal arts.
Aaron Okuley of Sylvania is
the son of Randy and Maryann
Okuley and is a graduate of St.
Joseph, Sylvania. Aaron has
demonstrated strength in the
areas of the four pillars by his
commitment to four years of
playing baseball, serving on
student council, being a four
year member and core team
member of Campus Ministry.
He is a member of National
Honor Society having a GPA
of at least a 4.0. He is a four
year member of Interact Club
and Teen Institute. Aaron has
also earned the highest honor
of the Boy Scouts of America
by achieving the rank of
Eagle Scout. “The spirit and
atmosphere of this school is
phenomenal.” He continued,
“The best part about St. Francis
is the brotherhood we share.”
Aaron will graduate with high
honors and attend John Carroll
University to earn a teaching
degree. He hopes to return to
St. Francis as a teacher of math
or science, and coach baseball
possibly.
Kasey Rupp of Toledo is the
son of Ken Scott and Kathleen
Remley and is a graduate of
Regina Coeli Grade School.
Kasey serves his school
community as a member
of Campus Ministry and its
core team. He is a three year
member of Teen Institute and
the Ambassador Club. Kasey
has played for two years on
the varsity hockey team and
is a senior class representative
on the student council. He
participated in a service trip
last summer to Louisville
through Catholic Heart Work
Camp. “The service trip has
been the best experience of
my life.” He continued, “The
brotherhood that week was
unreal. St. Francis has a special
brotherhood that is truly
unique to our school.” Kasey
will graduate with honors and
attend Marquette University
and major in business. He also
plans to minor in theology and
Spanish and hopes to join the
Peace Corps after college.
Rowan Williams of Ottawa
Hills is the son of Wayne
Williams and Carol Sargent and
is a graduate of Ottawa Hills
Elementary School. Rowan has
been a very dedicated athlete at
St. Francis having been on the
varsity swimming and water
polo teams all four years and
captain of both teams his senior
year. He has been recognized
two times as a Scholastic All-
American swimmer and he is a
5 time state champion. He was
named to the 1
st
Team All-State
Team for water polo. He serves
his school community through
the Campus Ministry and Teen
Institute Clubs. His senior
service involved volunteering
for the Josh Project; a non-
profit organization with the
primary goal of teaching inner
city children how to swim
because drowning is one of
the leading causes of death for
children and adolescence in
cities including Toledo. Rowan
reflected the sentiment shared
by all honored, “To be named
by my peers and school as a
Knight of Honor is an extremely
humbling experience. It is a
prestigious honor and I am
proud to be noticed as one
showing balance in the 4 pillars
of St. Francis de Sales High
School.” Rowan will graduate
with honors and has received
a scholarship to swim at the
college level for Ohio State
University. He plans to have
a dual major in business and
engineering.
Danny Yodzis of Toledo
is the son of Chris Yodzis
and Linda Savercool and is
a graduate of Gesu School.
Danny has been very involved
in various activities during his
four years at St. Francis. He
was President of his freshman,
sophomore, and junior classes.
He has played basketball and
football all four years and
served as captain of both teams
his senior year. He is a member
of the National Honor Society
having a GPA above a 4.5. He
works on the yearbook staff
and has served on Campus
Ministry all four years. He is a
member of the Men’s Chorus
and the Interact Club. When
asked what he likes most about
SFS, he answered, “Simply the
Brotherhood. It will never be
forgotten, my 600 brothers.”
He would love to play college
football at OSU, Hillsdale or
Dennison. He will graduate
with highest honors plans
to study pre-med courses in
college with the intention to
attend medical school to be an
orthopedic surgeon.
Knights of Honor recently recognized include from
left (1st row) Frank Bonfiglio, Tyler Clark, Kasey Rupp
and (2nd row) Aaron Okuley, Rowan Williams, Danny
Yodzis and Chris Gelardi.

St. Francis de Sales High School
presents the amateur debut of
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang is the enchanting
stage musical about the
fantastic adventures of an
out-of-the-ordinary car
that flies through the air
and sails the seas. It marks
the long history of great
family musicals presented
by the Knights of St.
Francis and involving the
young women of St. Ursula
Academy and Notre Dame
Academy.
Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang is based on the book
by Ian Fleming, the creator
of James Bond, written for
his son. The much loved
1968 film Chitty Chitty
Bang Bang was part of
everyone’s childhood.
Sensational music and
lyrics by the renowned
Sherman Brothers includes
such unforgettable songs
as Truly Scrumptious,
Toot Sweets, Hushabye
Mountain, and, of course,
its Oscar-nominated title
song Chitty Chitty Bang
Bang. The story was
adapted for the stage by
Jeremy Sams and Ray
Roderick and based on the
MGM Motion Picture.

Becky Minger, Miss
Ohio 2010, spent a
half-day with Sylvania
Franciscan Academy
students discussing her
youth-development
platform, “Discovering
You, Empowering You.”
She focused on building
a healthy self-image,
respecting oneself and
others, setting and meeting
goals, and recognizing
avenues of support,
especially those outside
one’s family. In addition,
Minger shared inspiring and
amusing insights into the
life of a pageant winner. A
recent graduate of Bowling
Green State University, the
Sylvania native overcame
shyness and a learning
disability to become a
strong competitor. As she
nears the end of her year-
long reign, Minger has
traveled more than 20,000
miles within the state of
Ohio promoting youth
empowerment.
Minger addressed the
SFA student body in three
groups, according to age
level. She discussed what
it means to feel empathy,
stressing that we can never
know what’s going on in
someone else’s life, so
we need to support rather
than judge others. She
also laid out a strategy for
preventing bullying. On the
subject of goals, Minger
explained that pursuing a
dream requires dedication,
faith and sacrifice. She
speaks from experience,
having been first runner-up
three years in a row before
winning the Miss Ohio
title.
During lunch with SFA
third- and fourth-grade
girls, Minger offered more
details about how she
learned to believe in herself
and aim high.
“Miss Ohio is my new
hero,” exclaimed fourth-
grader Emerald Flores Rae.
“She’s more than beautiful.
She’s smart and kind.”
Third-grader Amara
Berhan added, “Eating with
Miss Ohio is like having
lunch with royalty, only
better because she’s telling
us things we’ll always
remember.”
Becky Minger’s reign
will conclude on June 19,
when she passes her crown
to Miss Ohio 2011 at the
annual competition in
Mansfield.

The Exchange Club
of Toledo presented its
highest volunteer honor,
the Book of Golden Deeds
Award, to Sylvania resident
Mary Jane DelVerne at a
recent luncheon event at
the Toledo Club.
DelVerne’s work has
grown from personally
providing for one needy
family with eight children
back in 1998 to including
her Sylvania St. Joseph’s
Catholic Church parish
community and others
who, in 2010, brought
Christmas joy to 183
families, including 409
children. Each year, she has
recruited more and more
local groups to include Boy
and Girl Scouts, elementary
school classes, individuals
and businesses to pull off
this Godsend to neighbors
throughout the Toledo
area. She was also was the
catalyst in forming the St.
Joseph Social Outreach
Program that started
“Joseph’s Meals” which,
every month, feeds more
than 400 people at the St.
Louis Soup Kitchen in East
Toledo.
Currently, she
volunteers at the Heartbeat
Pregnancy Support Center
where she counsels
young pregnant women
in becoming effective
mothers. She also collects
household items and
furniture for returning
veterans and their families
through the local Heroes
in Action group and assists
in their mission to help
servicepersons.
“Mary Jane DelVerne
is an amazing and giving
woman with boundless
energy. She brings out the
best in people and makes
life better for others through
her inspired leadership,”
Sarah Hartley, Toledo
Exchange Club President
and Sylvania resident, said.
Also, Mary Jane and
her husband Michael were
instrumental in developing
the St. Joseph Business
Networking Group, which
links those in need of
employment with local
business professionals to
network their products
and services. They have
five grown children and 18
grandchildren.
The Book of Golden
Deeds Award is an
Exchange Club program that
recognizes a worthy person
or group that continuously
donates time, talent and
energy to help those in need.
Ever since the Exchange
Club of Huntington, Ind.,
sponsored the first award in
1919, thousands of unsung
heroes and heroines have
been recognized across the
country.
Exchange, America’s
Service Club, is a group of
men and women working
together to make their
communities better places
to live through programs
of service in Americanism,
Community Service, Youth
Activities and it’s national
Project, the Prevention of
Child Abuse.

Get Your Children Interested
In Newspapers
How do you help parents get a child interested in look-
ing at a newspaper? Keep in mind that it’s a kid’s job to
have fun.
Here are a few ideas to share with the readers of our
paper.
n Select a news story or a comic strip and cut the panels or
paragraphs apart. Help your child arrange the panels or
paragraphs in logical order.
n Read a brief editorial or column together. Have the child
underline facts with a blue pen and opinions with a red pen.
n Have your child choose a headline and turn it into a
question. Have the child read the article to see if it answers
the question.

Individuals with arthri-
tis are often stuck between
a rock and a hard place.
Doctors want people to
exercise to keep up the
range of motion in affect-
ed joints. However, even
some limited movements
can cause pain and suffer-
ing to those with arthritis.
Furthermore, individu-
als with arthritis may shy
away from the activities
they once enjoyed because
the pain is simply too over-
whelming.
Instead of simply sit-
ting on the couch watch-
ing television, there are a
number of different things
arthritis sufferers can do to
pass the time and recon-
nect with past hobbies and
interests. It might just take
a little re-outfitting of the
tools that are needed to
participate.
Gardening
Gardening is a popular
pastime for people of all
ages. But the repetitive mo-
tions of digging and tilling
as well as gripping a mul-
titude of tools can take the
joy out of the hobby. Peo-
ple with arthritis can make
some changes. Raised
garden beds or container
gardening eliminates the
stooping and bending as-
sociated with traditional
gardening. With contain-
ers, individuals can place
the containers on a counter
or table and do all the work
at a comfortable height.
Choosing low-main-
tenance plants is another
option. Plants that don’t
require as much pruning
or repotting are good for
those with arthritis. Also,
look for tools with larger
grips and handles to be
easier on arthritic hands.
Crafting
Many people with arthri-
tis find the fine-detail work
they grew accustomed to is
not very comfortable with
arthritis. Instead, there are
many other crafts that can
be practical.
Ceramics are one craft
where the activity can also
be the exercise. Using a
pottery wheel or hand-
molding doughs and other
modeling media can be a
way to stretch and work
the hands and fingers. Us-
ing paintbrushes equipped
with wider grips can make
painting possible.
Mural painting is an-
other option. Again, those
with arthritis can choose
tools with wide handles
to make grasping easier.
Large designs on walls or
canvases will be easier to
handle than smaller piec-
es.
Cooking
Cooking and baking
is an art form that can be
enjoyed by anyone. Fur-
thermore, with ergonomic
spoons, ladles and other
kitchen tools, it has never
been more convenient or
less labor-intensive to be
an accomplished home
chef.
Baking and pastry cre-
ation is one area where
people can show off cre-
ative skills. For those who
love to bake but have trou-
ble kneading and work-
ing dough, food proces-
sors, bread machines and
kitchen stand mixers can
take the work out of those
processes.
Cooking is not only a
rewarding hobby but also
an activity that can benefit
the household.
Having arthritis doesn’t
mean a person has to give
up on the activities he or
she enjoys. It merely in-
volves a few tweaks that
can still make these hob-
bies enjoyable.
Hobbies for arthritis sufferers
Container gardening is
a hobby arthritis sufferers
can enjoy.

thanks to the care from Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Now, we always recommend
that people consider hospice care early.
Patty, 2007

But my wife and I waited too long and we didn’t get all of the benefts we could
have received.
Tom, 1994

They relieved a lot of the worry, stress and fear. Don’t wait to get them involved.

Mary, 2001 and 2010
For 30 years, families have been writing to Hospice of Northwest Ohio to express
their thanks. Yet they often also say, “We wish we would have started hospice
care sooner.” The earlier you seek our expertise and support, the more we can
do to help.
