Learning to Smile;

Dr. Kozy and I, minutes after the procedure.  My body full of Valium and a mouth filled with a brighter future.

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower


I never knew how much stress I was carrying, with my smile. An incident happened during a basketball game, when I was 12 years-old–  my face ate the wood floors at the Catholic Club. The contact instantly broke my front tooth in half, had the the exposed nerve hanging and I still finished the game.

This the only story in my repertoire, that shows any toughness on my part. Read more ›

Rogalski: Are We Destined to Repeat the Past?

Written by: Dr. Francis Rogalski

EDITOR’S NOTE: Dr. Francis Rogalski is a Toledo-Area Pediatric Specialist.   As a father of an Autistic child, I once asked Dr. Rogalski if he believed if there was any relation between vaccines and autism.   It was a conversation that changed my perspective.  I invited him to share his views on vaccinating children


The United States may be on the verge of a Public Health Crisis!  Wide spread use of religious and philosophical exemptions to vaccines have resurrected old sleeping giants.  In the pre-vaccine era Polio resulted in 20,000 cases yearly, Pertussis(whooping cough) averaged 9000 deaths per year, Hemophilus Influenza b(a bacteria) was the leading cause of bacterial meningitis and post-natal mental retardation, and measles was affecting 500,000 people per year with 500 resultant deaths.  These and other diseases, once on the brink of eradication, are now making a comeback.

The Toledoan #RIPDMC

Mayor Collins, my daughter and myself at an anti-bullying event in August.

Mayor Collins, my daughter and myself at an anti-bullying event in August.

While the city of Toledo lost its Mayor, I lost a friend.

The friendship between D. Michael Collins and myself, started when I was the executive producer of WSPD, 15 years ago.  Mike Collins was then President of the TPPA.  It was the golden era of Newstalk radio in Toledo– we had Carty Finkbeiner as our Mayor.   There was one proven method for generating great content, agitate Carty enough  where he felt compelled to call in.  If I had done my job right, Carty would ring the studio hotline at 8:45 AM, and request to speak to Morning Show Host, Mark Standriff.  The on-air conversations that would follow, are the things of legend.

Mike Collins was one of the best at making Carty pick up the phone.  It was a simple formula, book Mike, expect Carty. Read more ›

Rokicki: Mayoral Politics, 101

Written by: Nick Rokicki


There was a time, not long ago, that I loved snowstorms. I loved waking up to a sea of white, smelling the fresh air that seems to come with a blanket of snow. I even enjoyed shoveling the stuff… just something about digging in, sharing an experience with each neighbor I saw doing the same thing. Yes, a big snowstorm is definitely a shared experience. It’s the one time where we’re all in it together. When, in reality, we should have that feeling every day.
