Grandpa Joe


Written by: Eric Shanteau

“Retired from work but not life”. This is the motto (and business card) that has been adopted and carried on and out by Mr. Joe W. Olman (a.k.a Grandpa Joe), one of the most amazing and interesting individuals I have ever met. This is a story about the love for life, the acknowledgement that every day is precious, and knowing that it’s never too late to value these notions. Read more ›

Good Thoughts and Prayers Requested


One of my favorite people in Northwest Ohio, is having her character and faith tested in ways we shouldn’t have to.

I haven’t written in a while because I’ve been waiting and waiting on some test results and couldn’t form thoughts or write about the what-ifs without driving myself insane.

Well, there’s no easy way to say this, I got results today and I have breast cancer.

I. Have. Breast. Cancer.

It still doesn’t seem real. I’m 38. No family history. I had all of my kids before the age of 30 and I breastfed them all. It just happened. I still can’t believe it.

I went in for my annual OBGYN check up two weeks ago and she felt a lump. I was shocked. I do self exams, but I never felt it. So I went last week (after almost 10 days of waiting I might add) for a diagnostic mammogram. They found another suspicious area in my other breast. So I had three biopsies last Thursday. I got the…

Saving Toledo

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower


Today, my heart is hurting for Stephen Machcinski’s and Jamie Dickman’s families.   So much pain was caused a year ago, seemingly out of greed and stupidity.

Heaven stole two heroes from us, with few realizing what was given in exchange.  Two lives lost, one city found.

Both men were destined to become firefighters. They were born with a sense of courage, that most of us could never envision. While people run away from burning buildings, they dreamed of running  into them. Read more ›

Randy Sehl vs Randy Sehl

Before yesterday, I had never heard the name of Randy Sehl.

I received my first message a little after 8 AM, asking for my opinion of Mr. Sehl.  Since I had no idea who he was, I decided to google and immediately found the article in the paper.  According to the Toledo Blade, Mr Sehl is ‘suspended with pay’ pending an investigation from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.  Mr. Sehl  currently works as head of security for Washington Local Schools, since 2012.  He was also suspended as a Volunteer Sheriff Deputy from Lucas County.   The investigation started after a Bedford student was caught with 25 to 30 tests, answer keys, and the class work of other students.. and numerous teachers which are all listed on the report.  Here is a link to the Toledo Blade’s story.

The news story was so unusual, that I read it a couple of times to comprehend the magnitude of what was being alleged.  It was so layered with confusing elements, that it wasn’t making sense.

I had way more questions than answers, and my inbox was starting to be filled with people alleging that there might be a history with Mr. Sehl and Bedford students. Read more ›

I recently interviewed local filmmaker, Larry D Williams II about his Indiegogo campaign for his upcoming film “Fire Power” which he is co-directing with fellow UT grad Nathan Volker.

They are looking to raise $6,500 for their ambitious project. They are seeking the funds to help rent and buy the equipment they need to make this locally produced film look and sound as great as possible. The perks available through the campaign that include everything from a ticket to the premiere of the film to signed DVDs and more. These are the gifts you can receive for helping fund the project.

“Fire Power” is feature film that started out as a youtube project for the filmmakers but they wanted to open it up to a feature film to help showcase Toledo’s acting and filmmaking talent. The film is an action thriller that follows two top detectives in Toledo that feel they are walking the right path but as they go the path becomes blury. “I think that seeing good independent films being made in a community that’s not a Hollywood film by people not working for Hollywood will open people’s eyes to the possibilities. And who doesn’t like an action thriller ” said Williams.


Still from the Project A Studios film “Fire Power”

Larry D Williams II went to the University of Toledo for film production and is very passionate in his love of the art form. Williams told me, “I think that making words on a page become a visual medium is amazing. The stories that you can tell, the things you can do, it’s all amazing to me.”

Through this project and others Williams said he wants people to be entertained.and with all of the bad things happening in the world right now, he wants to take people away from that even if it’s for only 30mins to a hour. He is hoping that this film is one step closer to his dream of building a studio in Ohio.

You can help his dream become a reality by donating between now and the end of the day January 24, 2015 at
