    Cover Story

    W ith a twinkle in his bright blue eyes, Walter Chapman laughed off a question about his secret to longevity. How the hell do I know? he asked with a smile and a shrug.An artist who has won numerous awards worldwide for his watercolor and oil paintings, Chapman turned 101 last year on Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7th).

    He said he tries to eat well, including plenty of fresh fruit, and was ac-tive in sports most of his life. He played football at Scott High Schooluntil he got knocked out and was told he couldnt play any longerand then took up tennis.

    Chapman has been using a wheelchair since he took a fall in his Sylva-nia home several years ago, breaking a leg in three places. Thats when his wife, Jean, decided to close the Chapman Art Gallery in downtown Sylvania, which she had run for 30 years, and spend more time caring for her husband. While Chapman is not as mobile as he used to be, he stays active and still enjoys painting and sketching.

    READS THREE BOOKS A WEEKHe reads three books a week, mostly mysteries by such authors as James

    Patterson and John Grisham, and loves watching sports on television.Jean a spry 93, has a theory why her husband of 51 years (it was a second

    marriage for both) is such a vibrant and vital centenarian: his peaceful per-sonality and positive outlook.He is a very sweet, kind, thoughtful soul, she said. He doesnt have any agitation or anger in him. He has good feelings. Now that doesnt mean he cant get angry...

    A long

    art-filled lifeand

    Walter interjects a story about when he was a student at the Cleveland School of Art and had a friend who was a professional boxer. He taught me to fight and I got pretty good, even though I never really was a fighter.

    One day the two were walking past a fraternity house when the frat boys started hurling insults.

    We stopped and my friend said, Walter, pick out anyone you want and Ill handle the rest. We walked up to their yard and he said, Come on. He knocked them out with one punch. I didnt have any problem with my guy because he had taught me how to box. The rest of them retreated back to their porch, and we said goodbye. That was an aberration, though an unforgettable one, for the peaceful painter. But it wasnt the only time he experienced violence firsthand.Chap-man was a sergeant in World War II and was stationed on the front lines during the Battle of the Bulge.

    SKETcHES Of ARmy lifEHe brought his art equipment with him and captured many scenes of

    Army life while advancing through France and Germany. (But my real job was to kill a few Germans, he said.).

    He went out with a big sheet of white paper to do the painting, Jean added, and it was like a target. They started shooting at him while he was trying to paint!

    His WWII artworks have been featured in a number of books, in the Brown University Military Collection, and in the military newspaper Stars & Stripes. Chapman said all he ever wanted to be was an artist. When I was just a kid I was doing drawings, from the very beginning. I used to do

    little portraits of people because I like to do faces.He also loves painting landscapes, and specialized in watercolors

    because they are easy to use while traveling. He has carried his easel and supplies literally around the world, painting scenes from the Maumee River to Notre Dame Cathedral to the Taj Mahal.

    Chapman said he never tried to copy other artists styles, but followed his own creativitydeveloping a light and spirited touch that can crys-tallize a scene without getting lost in the details.

    Do your own thingIts always easier to do your own thing, he said. I dont like to copy

    other peoplebut they can copy me if they want to!Chapman has taught scores of local students, holding classes in his

    Sylvania home for decades. Many have kept in touch with their kind and patient instructor. One even married him. Jean met Walter when she was his student.

    Their relationship is so loving, Jean said, that she believes it contrib-utes to living long and fruitful lives. Hell say, I need a hug, or, I need a kiss. Jean said. It happens all the time.

    Walter Chapman: People, Places, and Things, an exhibit featuring 28 paintings, is on display through Aug. 16 in the Perrysburg Municipal Building, 201 Indiana Ave. Some artworks are for sale, priced from $800

    to $2,500. Information: 419-324-4758 or [email protected]

    them to the fact that this is not a permanent arrangement. Will it be three months? Six

    months? A year? Until your kid finds a job?

    Talk about things like who is

    responsible for what chores around the house, access to cars, late nights/no-shows, and overnight guests. Your child is now an adult, and needs re-ality checks. Parents should feel entitled to negotiate what works for them during this time. You arent run-

    ning a bed and breakfast, so be clear about what you need.

    All personal responsibilities like laun-dry, cleaning their room, and cleaning up after themselves should be a mustno ne-gotiating on this one.

    And it wont hurt to ask them to help the family with things like grocery shop-ping, cooking, and yard work. If you dont open those lines of communication fully up front, youre opening the door for your boomerang kid to dodge responsibility and take advantage of the situation.

    The financial implications of mov-ing back home are crucial for the par-ents and the adult child. If he or she has income and can pay rent and contribute to food costs, they should. One ground rule that can be especially helpful is to schedule regular bank savings check-ups with your son or daughter to make sure they are holding up their end of the financial bargain.

    Agree on a set amount to be saved that would be enough for your child to get his or her own placeand make sure it happens. A boomerang situation doesnt have to be a negative experi-ence. If you can view it as a teachable moment, then perhaps some personal financial concepts can be forged that will stay with your children the rest of their lives.

    But preferably in their own resi-dence, and the sooner the better.

    RelationshipsWhen Boomerang Kids are filling empty nestsTips on keeping the peace

    by Linda Tippett

    Hello, Mom? Guess whatIm coming home!

    That message would normally be cause for celebration if the son or daughter has been gone for some time. But the situation changes when your child asks, Can I stay with you and dad for a while?

    Your son or daughter, now a young adult, has just become a member of a fast-growing groupthe Boomerang Kids, the children of baby boomers who are finding it tough to make it on their own and are landing back in the parents empty nests.

    Some have begun or finished col-lege. Others cant find jobs. Some have jobs, but want to save money. Others may have young families and cant swing the monthly finances.

    Some have credit card or college

    Kim Bryson of Perrysburg:Thankful for the boomerang opportunityby HannaH benson

    as soon as I got home and realized how much I missed it, with being so far away for school, it was hard to think about leaving again anytime soon, said Kim bryson, 22, of Perrysburg.

    bryson, who recently gradu-ated from niagara University with a degree in early childhood and special education, played college softball and the time demands of athletics prevented her from work-ing while she was a student. That is one of the reasons she moved back in with her parents.

    I think its a good option for those who arent quite ready to be on their own, she said. Whether they dont have the money, theyre unsure about their future and where they want to be, or even if they just want to stay in the same city, it doesnt make sense to pay for an apartment if your parents are willing to take you in for some time.

    bryson said it was a big change, replacing a life filled with softball and schoolwork with spending her time searching for a job to cover her living expenses. she enjoys being home and the independence that her parents let her have as a boomerang kid, allowing her to make her own decisions.

    I offer up a lot of help when I can because I am thankful they allowed me to move back in, she said.

    she has given herself a timeline of one year to find a job, decide where she wants to live, and save money to support herself.

    loan debt they cant pay off.

    So the empty nests are filling upand in some instances, becom-ing crowded. Making room will, of course, have advantages and disadvantages, but with proper planning, it can be a win-win situation for everyone.

    If you find your-self dealing with your own boomerang kid, here are some tips to help keep the atmosphere nontoxic.

    Before they arrive at the door with clothes, furniture, sporting gear, and all their electronics, try discussing an appropriate pe-riod of time for them to live at home. Alert

    HealtHScents and Sensitivity

    Be careful of chemicals in the fragrances you useby Alice Marson

    Everyone likes to smell good, but smelling good should not be injurious to your health or the health of others.

    Many perfumes and fragrance ingredients are derived and pro-duced by chemical synthesis of petroleum and contain hazardous chemicals that present potential health risks.

    Its smart to keep in mind that anything you put on your skin or inhale is absorbed into the blood-stream.

    Some of the chemicals used in fragrances can trigger allergic reactions resulting in headaches, wheezing, vomiting, reduced pul-monary function, asthma, lung irritation and contact dermatitis.

    Other serious potential health risks include hormone disruption, sperm damage, thyroid effects, and endocrine problems.

    Not listed on labelsWhile some of the toxic chem-

    icals found in perfumes are also found in cigarette smoke and gasoline, perfume ingredients, like those used in toxic cleaning products, are not required by the federal Food and Drug Adminis-tration to be listed on the label.

    Three of the most common chemicals found in perfumes are benzaldehyde, benzyl acetate, and ethanol.

    Lab tests commissioned by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, the Environmental Working Group, found 91 different chemicals in 17 products. Some of the popular products in the study included Hannah Montana Se-cret Celebrity, Britney Spears Cu-rious, Calvin Klein Eternity for Men, Halle by Halle Berry, and Jennifer Lopez J. Lo Glow. These products, just a few of the many, are not condemned by the FDA, but contain harmful chemicals on the EPAs Hazardous Waste List. They are being sold and used by the general public every day.

    Keep in mind that anything you put on your skin or inhale is absorbed into the bloodstream. Another health concern is the quality of indoor air. Numer-ous reports have described the sick building syndrome associ-ated with the air quality in public buildings. The contamination of indoor air can be not only from perfumes, but also from a variety of sources, including construction materials, fabrics, furnishings, maintenance supplies, adhesives, paint, caulks, paper, and cleaning products.

    Steve Ganss, co-owner of To-ledo Duct Clean, said people who call his business are often hav-ing respiratory problems. Dust, mold and allergens build up in

    the ducts over time, whether its a residential building or a business. Many people dont get their ducts cleaned as often as they should, Ganss said.

    Workplace illnesses When it comes to fragrances,

    people are becoming increasingly sensitive to the chemicals. For many, fragrances in perfumes can be overwhelming and nauseating. People can become ill from the inconsiderate use of fragrances in shared workspaces. It stands to reason that per-fume should make one smell goodnot make one ill. The fra-grance from perfumes, cosmetics, or whatever, should be organic and, if possible, 100% natural. So, if you would like to smell good, try natural essential oils, of which there are dozens. Lavender is a very popular, recognizable, and delightful one. Personally, I like patchouli.

    Health and optimismA new survey by the Dallas-based United States of Aging found that Americans 60 and older are more mo-tivated than in the past two annual surveys to improve their health by exercising regularly and setting health goalstwo simple steps that also relate to reported increases in optimism among seniors. Accord-ing to the survey, more than one-third of seniors (37%) say they exercise every day, compared to 26% in 2013. And among seniors who exercise daily, 28% say the past year has been better than normal, compared to 15% overall.

    TravelHiking, cruising

    in EuropeRetired teacher finds her travel

    groove on trip with teensby Christine A. Holliday

    In record numbers, those 65 and older are taking off on cruises, hiking adventures, vis-iting historic site, and travel-ing overseas, all helping them keep active and stay involved in the world around them.

    JoAnne Wayton, 73, of Lam-bertville, MI, is one such traveler. She recently joined a group of high school girls and her daughter to see sites in Spain and Italy. As it turns out, she experienced hiking, cruising, lots of history, and over-seas culture as the group spent nine days on the go. She walked on the cobblestone streets of Zaragosa, hiked up the hilly streets of Toledo, Spain, and enjoyed an overnight ferry ride from Barcelona to Rome. She visited museums, cathedrals, plazas, and palaces, making friends with fellow travelers as young as her grandchildren.

    First taste of big travelA retired nurse and teacher,

    Wayton traveled on short trips with groups of singles before her marriage. But she had her first taste of big travel when she and her husband, John, took a trip to Las Vegas.

    During their 47-year marriage, the Waytons enjoyed 14 cruises, including one through the Panama Canal. She notes that she has trav-eled to every country in Central and South America.

    The Waytons also traveled to Hawaii and Alaska and made two pilgrimage tours to Italy, both of which focused on Catholic religious sites. JoAnne still smiles when she describes how close she sat to then-Pope Benedict XVI. She reads vora-ciously about sites she might visit, and hopes to visit the Holy Land in the future.

    So, how does a savvy senior traveler (who has traveled almost exclusively with other couples) end up sharing a European vacation

    with high school girls and their moms and teachers?

    JoAnnes daughter, Marie Blesing, teaches at St. Ursula Academy, where the Spanish teacher was organizing a trip to Madrid, Toledo and Barcelona, Spain, and Rome. Marie wanted to go, and asked her mom to be part of the group, which included 34 students, teachers, and moms. The average age of the group was 28, with plenty of student athletesa mix of energy and enthusiasm that might have wor-ried a not-so-experienced traveler. But JoAnne wasnt concerned.

    Im not old Im not old at 73, she said. I

    wondered why they were asking me if I was OK. I felt some fatigue that first dayafter the overnight flightbut we all did. After that day, I was an old hand at the walking. I enjoyed riding with the girls on the bus and the met-ro; we had wonderful exchanges about what we were seeing and eating as we went from one city to the next. They all watched out for me, making sure I didnt fall behind, and I enjoyed see-ing how they responded to sailing on the Mediterranean, seeing the making of Toledo blades, and attending Mass in Rome.

    She continued: I had read a lot before we left for the trip, but I was still surprised by some things. I had no idea a place like the Royal Palace in Madrid could have 1,400 bedrooms, and I had never tried tapas before. I enjoyed seeing a different side to the teacher-student relationship than one I had experienced in the classroom. There was a lot of learning and plenty of laughing!

    Wayton has advice for other se-niors thinking about traveling: Do it! Go! If you dont try, youll never know what youre missing!

    Movie ReviewsStorytelling, special effects lift ApesDawn of the Planet of the Apes HHHby Michael Siebenaler

    This high-quality film continues the saga of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (extremely well played by Andy SerkisGollum in the Lord of the Rings movies). His presence seeps through his ape image as he gives Caesar unique features in his role as leader. He looks around at every ape to get a sense of their feelings before making de-cisions, helping audiences relate to the ape community. The initial confronta-tion between humans and apes (alone worth the price of admission) showcases Caesars newly found leadership.

    Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Gary Oldman (Dark Knight) play Malcolm and Dreyfus, two leaders of the human group. Both speak volumes with their actions, and Dreyfus interaction with his tablet computer without dialogue justifies supplementary back stories for each leader.

    Keri Russell (Mission Impossible III, TVs The Americans) plays Malcolms wife Ellie while Caesar also has a pregnant wife and an older son learning the ropes alongside him. The special effects, storytelling, direction, and makeup are so good here that audiences can immerse themselves into this fantasy world where humans seek survival and apes form their society.

    Matt Reeves replaces previous director Rupert Wyatt and is a big reason why this film succeeds on so many levels. The story impacts on a high level thanks to screenwriters Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa, and Mark Bomback.

    Recommended (***) and rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi vio-lence and action, and brief strong language.

    HoMe Movie video Review: Boredom HHH

    What is boredom and where does it come

    from? Can one really be "bored to death'? And how can you fight it? Director Albert Nerenberg (Laug-hology, Stupidity) continues inves-tigating personality characteristics that everyone addresses every day in this high-quality documentary. This film offers great perspectives and approaches to boredom, taking a fairly satirical tone while consider-ing other social factors, education, and technology usage. The bonus feature almost equals the films run-ning time and includes two quick featurettes and the 48-minue A Revolutionary Accelerated Unbor-ing Version for the Easily Bored. Really! This is a very entertaining and solidly recommended docu-mentary.

    Cuchi-cuchi still Charos trademarkBy Marshall Jay Kaplan

    The flamboyant entertainer and talented flamenco guitarist is still flamboyant and still talented and still makes television and stage appearanc-es. Cuchi-cuchi!

    Maria del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martinez Molina Baeza (yes, that is her real name!) was born January 15, 1951 in Murcia, Spain. Starting as a child right into her teenage years,

    she studied classical and flamenco guitar. Always the funny performer, she would be scolded by her guitar teacher for playfully saying Cuchi-cuchiher nickname for her little dog, Cuchilloto make him dance and wiggle his rear end. Her habit of calling her dog (and wiggling her be-hind) became her trademark.

    In 1964, Charo (as she now called

    Where Are They NoW? herself ) was discovered by bandleader Xavier Cugat, who married her when she was 15. She later claimed it was a business deal so she could legally move to the United States. Upon becoming a U.S. citizen in 1978, she divorced Cugat.

    Charo began appearing on U.S. television shows in the mid-60s and by the mid-70s was in many TV se-ries and game shows. As viewers tired of her, Charo Cuchi-cuchid her way off of television.

    She remarried and moved to Ha-waii to open a dinner theater where

    she could perform with her num-ber one loveflamenco guitar. Twenty years lat-er, she was asked to appear in a reality series called The Surreal Life, and returned to Los Angeles.

    Interest in Charo was rekindled and she has parodied herself in com-mercials for Sprint and Geico, and performs on cruise ships.
