    What was your first job?My first real job was working as a stock boy at the Great Eastern Shopping Center Kroger Srore.

    What health, diet or lifestyle tips do you practice?I dont always practice what I feel is good but doing everything in moderation would be a good idea. Words to live by?Remember: God created all people equal and I feel everyone has the right to live in a society free from fear and intrusion.

    Feature Story

    Campus of LifeLearning for the Rest of Our Lives

    By Chris WatsonCan I make sushi at home? What are all these apps for on my iPad? How do I make a slideshow on the computer... with music... and text? Is sugar really the arch villain of nutrition? Is anyone else besides me interested in astronomy? Was U.S. Grant that good of a general? Or that bad of a president? Can I finally take all those courses that I didnt have time for the last time I went to college? Can I get my degree... just because I want to?

    For most of our professional lives we studied for survival or advancement. Job requirements, continuing educa-tion requirements, new machines, new programs, skill certifications, even baccalaureates and masters programs be-came the albatross hanging around our careers. Learning was a necessity, not a passion. However, with broad participa-tion from local colleges and universities along with national non profits, the learning albatross has flown the coop. Learning can, in fact, be fun.

    The US Department of Education reports that the fast-est growing segment of students is now adult and lifelong learners. What used to be simple community education courses and lectures has turned into a full service menu of opportunities. Here is a roundup of local and online resources to start back to school for the best reason around: the joy of learning.

    Ohio Department of Aging. Includes a listing of colleges and universities that offer free courses for survey purposes along with other resources for going back to school. Includes a link based list that provides portals to these institutions.

    University of Toledo. Provides a wide variety of curriculum for the adult learner through the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning (CALL). Program 60 offers pro-grams to those over 60 who wish to take college courses without credit (or audit). All audit courses are limited by availability and space. For the more serious the College offers three different bach-elor programs geared to the non traditional learner. These include degrees in Professional Studies, In-terdisciplinary Studies, and Liberal Studies. Information at University of Toledo Rocket Hall 1300 (main campus), 419-530-3311. or email, [email protected]

    Bowling Green State University. Provides a wide variety of courses for seniors and adult learners along with a menu of community education programs for all ages. Includes personal enrichment programs, professional development, and lifelong learning. Financial aid and other programs provided through Senior Adult Grants for Education (SAGE). Info at BGSU Community Education 14 College Park, Bowling Green, OH 877-650-8165

    Lourdes University. Programs are open to all individuals. Lourdes has three levels of opportunities including classes, day trips, and monthly lectures. Classes include creative subjects like Bad As-tronomy and Sugar, the good the bad, and the ugly. Lectures include interest peaking titles like Edmund Fitzgerald, What Really Hap-pened? and The ABCs: Archae-ologists, Bones, and Coroners. Information at under the community outreach tab. Contact info at 419-517-8897 or [email protected]

    Owens Community College. Program called Work/Play, Learning for a Better Life. The widest variety of short, targeted classes with a wide range of top-ics for almost any interest. Offers a strong slate of professional and skill certification courses for in software, real estate, medical (such as CPR training), and office training. Besides these develop-ment courses Owens offers a captivating array of courses for personal and hobby interest on subjects ranging from gardening to chef knife skills. Workforce and Community Services, PO Box 10000. 567-661-7357

    Renhill. In conjunction with Ow-ens Community College, Renhill offers a small variety of tuition free programs to train those who are still in the workforce or need to reenter it. The program is called Plus 50 and is targeted at the unemployed or underem-ployed. Courses are limited to specific, job related topics like Special Education Aid. Contact Renhil at 419-254-2863.

    Road Scholar. A non profit travel site affiliated with Elderho-stel offering educational travel opportunities from local to world-wide. Although not directly affili-ated with an educational institu-tion programs draw heavily from regional universities to provide guides and lectures for their trips. One trip locally involves a five day trip of the western Lake Erie basin investigating areas of geol-ogy, human and natural history. Programs are listed with the Ohio Department on Aging. 800-454-5768.

    Heated debate concerning the ef-ficacy of medical marijuana typically focuses on balancing the medical ben-efits versus the recreation aspect. One local businessman, however,is shifting the dialogue.

    Kevin Spitler, of the Toledo Hemp Center, provides an alternative to med-ical marijuana and pain pills. 5 years ago, he opened the hemp dispensary, offering products derived from hemp that are rich in CBD, a chemical found in cannabis.

    Welcome to the neighborhood When the Center first opened, Spitler

    admits that many locals were confused.Once people learned that it was le-

    gal and didnt get you high, we were wel-comed, said Spitzer.

    The Centers hemp-based products do not include THC, the component of the plant that gets you high. Instead, the products contain varying amounts of CBD, one of the over 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis.

    Like THC, CBD works with the bodys already existing cannabinoid re-ceptor system to regulate appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive proper-ties, which means that it will not impair judgment, motor skills, or provide recre-ational benefit.

    On the insideWhen you enter the Center, you

    are met by smiling faces, excited to ex-plain the huge variety of products the store displays. Offering everything from hemp-infused flapjack mix, to lip balms, vapor products, chocolates, gummy squares, infused water, juice and oils, the Center provides many possible routes to consume CBD.

    Everyone has a cannabinoid deficit because of prohibition, said Spitler, so taking these products as a supplement is a great preventative method.

    Some of the most common problems that Spitzer helps treat through the CBD products are gastrointestinal issues, mi-graines, chronic pain, and lung cancer.

    Using vapor products, similar to e-cigs but without nicotine, CBD is quickly absorbed in damaged areas. A local medical clinic has sent lung cancer patients here to get CBD through their lung passages, said Spitler.

    Also frequently referred are patients with migraines. Topical oils can be ap-plied near the temples for quick absorp-tion to ease pain.

    A new focusOne of Spitlers most recent focuses

    is aiding those addicted to prescription drugs or heroin. Also, Spitler suggests those suffering an injury can begin treat-ment first with a CBD alternative, before beginning a course of prescription medi-cine.

    Were living in a society which is being prescribed a lot of pills, and the heroin problem is related to that, said Spitler. If I can help your pain without a pill, it will stop the whole process [lead-ing to addiction].

    Spitler encourages those curious to come to the shop and learn, providing samples to interested people, allowing them to experience the benefits.

    Do you smell that wonderful aroma? Taste the delicious difference? Many chefs agree that cooking with fresh herbs divine enhances the cuisine we eat. Chef Jason Peeler from Ciao Restaurant is certainly a believer. He is so sure of it that for the last three years an herb garden has been grown, specifically for cooking, at Ciao, on Monroe St. in Sylvania. People like to see the fresh ingredients that are being used and many restaurant visitors stop to admire the area and enjoy the won-derful scent.

    Designed by his wife, Jennifer, the garden features basil, oregano, tarragon, rosemary, lavender, thyme, chives and tomatoes. They also have an extensive garden at their Elmore, Ohio home and love growing fresh in-gredients and cooking authentic food. His favorite - the fresh vegetable pizza, made by his wife, using the garden fresh abundance.

    Ciao, 6064 Monroe St.419-882-2334

    Jason is a graduate of the Penn-sylvania Institute for Culinary Arts, and began his twenty-five year career at Mon Ami Restau-rant in Port Clinton. He arrived at Ciao Restaurant with a penchant for cooking with quality. His mot-to high quality is the most im-portant ingredient in maintaining a restaurants high standards.

    His favorite chef is outspoken television personality Gordon Ramsay, for his exacting cooking standards and Peeler maintains that, for Ciao to continue its suc-cess, it has to stay on top of its game. He believes that with the many restaurants in Toledo there is good competition, pushing him to maintain high standards and to work harder. Staying on top of his game includes creating fabulous food made with top of the line fresh ingre-dients; a recipe for success.

    Welcome to MLiving Home! The home is where the heart is and homeowners strive to lovingly beautify their surround-ings with distinctive architecture, bold ideas, fine furnishings and lush landscaping. Our new column, MLiving Home introduces you to area houses that are unique, contemporary or simply a beautiful place to live. You can gather ideas, learn decorator and builders tips or just dream about all of the possibilities.

    Life on the LakeWhere can you live on a lake in the middle of Northwest Ohio but your

    house looks like it belongs on Nantucket Island? Dave and Sandy Roberts set out to build a scenic lakeside retreat that is used twelve months out of the year, only it is located in Holland, Ohio.

    The home reflects a charming Northeast Coast flavor that allows the fam-ily to enjoy water sports as well as extensive entertaining. The stone and shingle ranch, built by Jim Howald, is painted a bold, indigo that gives the home its personality.

    The Roberts used shades of taupe and gray to enhance the interior and add to the feeling of being both old and new. The large living area allows guests to move comfortably from the dining area through the kitchen and great room while enjoying the lake view from all angles.

    The furniture, and the vintage feeling, is accented with unique furnish-ings and patterns that coexist harmoniously. Sandy loves exploring estate sales to add eclectic collectibles and has painted and refinished pieces to add to the collection.

    This lakeside home features summer and fall seasonal outdoor dining, which plays significantly in the familys love of outdoor living. We may not live in the Northeast but we can sure bring the Northeast here and this house reflects those charming scenic retreats.

    The Toledo Club, a bastion of old money and fabulous architecture opened its doors on Saturday, June 19, 1915. Since then it has become the premiere meeting place for movers and shakers and on any day you can see a whos who of business leaders, community activists and young up and comers.

    In 1870, Toledo business leaders began meeting regularly to discuss the happenings of our city. David Ross Locke, who went by the pen name Petroleum V. Nasby, gave the group the name Draconian, which, was widely received as harsh. Members changed the name to The Toledo Club in 1889 and a new building on Madison and Huron Sts. served as its headquarters. Mem-bership was then limited to 350. Twenty five years later, when the building was outgrown, plans were made to find a new location.

    A site was purchased and The Toledo Club was built at Madison and 14th for $500,000. The architects were Mills, Rhines, Bellman and Norhoff with Lawrence Bellman as the chief architect for the English Renaissance Building.

    The outside is Harvard brick and Indiana limestone. Many of the rooms

    were originally decorated to reflect English and Italian Renaissance themes. The club featured dining rooms, restaurant and private meet-ing rooms. An athletic com-plex with a basketball court, bowling alley/squash courts and swimming pool was opened in 1926.

    In the beginning ladies were not welcome through-out the club, but eventually a side entrance and dining room were designated for their use.

    While dues remained stable members were each assessed $50 in 1922 due to lost revenue because of Pro-hibition. The Depression also brought some cost cutting measures with only cash allowed and increased luncheon and dinner prices. The original billiards room was turned into the Red Room which is used today for events and musical per-formances.

    One of the noteworthy entertain-ment happenings at the club is when Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians played a one night stand . Unfortunately it was a limited seating many members were not able to get in.

    The club has evolved in recent years adding parties, redecorating several of the rooms, redoing the athletic com-plex and expanding its squash facilities. Members enjoy competitive play with the biggest tournament of the year being the Toledo Squash Classic with players coming from the US and Canada. The Club hosted the North American Open Singles Championships. This crown jew-el of squash was held from 1987 -1990 in the 3 walled, glass tour court erected in the ballroom. The glass tour court was

    also brought in for the WPSA World Pro-fessional Squash Association Champion-ships in 1986.

    In 1990, membership became gender inclusive, and the club is now a part of the green energy brigade.Today you can take a spin class, body sculpt or visit the barber shop. If you need alterations, call the tailor and buffets are widely attended. While the dress code used to be more formal, favoring suits, today proper business casual attire is required and in the main dining room, suit jackets are al-lowed, sans tie.

    The Membership classifications have been revised to fit different lifestyles and budgets. The Toledo Club will be host-ing a mortgage burning celebration on Thursday, July 30 at a members-only event.

    Home energy prices threaten the ability of many older adult households to continue living independently in their home. While it has been common knowledge for many years that older adults are extremely vulnerable to extreme temperatures, analysis by the Centers for Disease Control, most recently in 2013, has shown that heat-related deaths are most common among people over 85 years of age. Yet many older adults lack adequate air conditioning.

    Since the cost of heating or cooling a home to safe levels is out of reach for many low-income older adults, older adults signing up for utility assistance programs such as the Home Energy Assistance Program is essential.
