    It all started with my grandfather, Mattoni says. He started the business in 1967 and along with my father we have been going ever since.

    Dean actually trained as a mechanic first, attending nights, for three years, atOwens Community College. His love affair with cars started way before that. I first came to work here when I was 10 with my grandfather (Rocky). My grand-father would have me take stuff apart with the idea that if I took it apart I would learn how it worked.

    From there it was a slow progression. By 1983 Dean was full time in the fam-ily business. In the 90s Rockys got into custom painting. They now do all cus-tom work from everyday collision, specialty paint, restoration, and performance. Dean has been the sole owner since 2014. When the opportunity came along to move from mechanics to painting Dean jumped at the chance. I love playing with paints and colors. Besides cars they also custom paint motorcycles. We just did a lime green Harley, states Mattoni boldly. I normally dont like green but I have to admit this looks really good.

    Although Dean loves all things old, as a professional he works hard to stay cur-rent in skill and technique. The technology is always changing, he says, talking animatedly about a new paint that, when electrified, lights up like a neon light. You cant go a year in the painting business without learning something.

    Cars are just in me, says Roberts, who along with his son Kevin owns and operates Roberts Auto Restoration. We certainly do everyday collision work, he states. However, we also do resto-ration of older vehicles. The restoration is more of a non-profit thing, Garey states lightly.

    He certainly has been learning about car restoration his whole life. A graduate of the now closed Macomber Vocational High School in downtown Toledo, Gar-ey started out doing body work at a lo-cal dealership. Even at the dealership I had a keen interest in restoration and hot

    rods, he states. The old car restoration was a simple hobby.

    Like so many hobby enthusiasts he turned his skill at restoration into a busi-ness. I just thought it was time to open up for myself, he claims. Sometimes I wish I had done it earlier. Garey has been bringing old cars back to life for almost 60 years, and for 25 years as a business. His son is also full time. I love working with my son, he states em-phatically. We get along well and he is an excellent painter.

    Michael Murray has been painting vehicles his en-tire life. It is like this, he says bluntly. If you lived in my neighborhood and owned a bicycle, I pinstriped it. Growing up in South Toledo and graduating from Central Catholic with an art interest, he found a way to make art pay. My parents were not too enthused about my art passion, he remarks. They were sure I would starve.

    That did not deter Michael. As a freshman in high school, he got a job at the Wally Sign Company and learned the art of lettering. At 21 he bought the Perma Bench Company with over 400 bus stop benches. In the morning he would put on a suit and tie and sell ad-vertising, in the afternoon he would go out and paint what he had sold.

    Throughout his early career he pinstriped. Eventu-ally he got into sports car racing professionally. He started in a Shelby DT350 Mustang and bought into a IMSA Corvette. I drove, he says proudly, in the first race ever held at the Michigan International Speed-

    way. In the mid 70s racing took a major downturn during the international oil crisis and embargo. Murray changed careers and went into real estate. After all, he remarks, I painted a lot of brokers names on benches.

    He never lost his love for cars or Harleys and contin-ued to work on them throughout his realty career. He pin striped the oldest Ford known to exist, which is now on dis-play at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. He also pinstriped the 20 millionth Ford which is also on display at the museum. You can do anything you put your mind to, says Murray. In his case he became an auctioneer in his mid 50s and just recently completed a round trip on his Harley to Alaska. Eight thousand and one miles, he says. Dontforget the one.

    Cover Story

    Elmores founding father,Israel Har-rington owned the valuable land but never developed it. The property was acquired in the late 1800s and Joe Schedel spent several years there as a boarder. Mr. Schedel signed a 99 year lease on the house and land in the late 1920s and eventually purchased the estate outright in 1969.

    The original property was significantly larg-er prior to construction of the Ohio Turnpike in 1955. That change, however, prompted the Schedels to create the Japanese garden in the floodplain and also construct the Shack. (The Schedels summer home adjacent to the lakes in the lowland area of the grounds.)

    Not only were the Schedels proficient in landscape and horticulture, but Joe Sche-del was also an award winning ornitholo-gist. Upon oe Schedel death in 1981, Marie stopped actively maintaining the grounds, and between his passing and hers in 1989,

    the estate fell into a state of disrepair. Upon Maries death the Schedel Foundation took possession of the estate and began the task of restoring the grounds to their once grand condition. The gates opened to the public in 1991.

    Regular operations begin May 1 and run through October 31, Tuesday through Satur-day from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM and Sun-days from Noon until 4:00 PM. Closed on Mondays but available for weddings and spe-cial events. Located on a bend in the Portage River, the Schedel Arboretum and Gardens is easily accessible from the Ohio Turnpike.

    Sauder VillageIn 1934, farm boy Erie J. Sauder (1904-1997) with plenty of vision,

    determination and God-given mechanical ability, founded the Sauder Woodworking Company, today a world leader in ready-to-assemble fur-niture.

    Partial to the stories of his ancestors who had been among those who settled NW Ohios Great Black Swamp in the mid 1830s, in the 1970s, he had dozens of structures, built by hand a century earlier, moved from locations throughout NW Ohio to create the Sauder Village.

    Today, the third generation of his family oversees the Village, which in-cludes a 350-seat restaurant; a bakery; a campground; a 98-room country inn and an exhibit/performance center, Founders Hall. Experience his-tory up close as our costumed staff leads many activities and demonstra-tions of daily rural life in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    The buildings and studios are home to several nationally recognized craftsmen working with traditional tools in both historic and modern in-terpretations. With daily displays of their skills, these artisans perpetuate American craftsmanship right in front of your eyes.

    Organizing Your Medication

    Being organized is often a part of life that is overlooked. Things get busy and organiza-tion goes out the window. However, being organized can make a big dierence in your daily life and can even help lower your stress levels. For those of you who want to be more organized, one area you may want to focus on are your medications. Organizing medications is a much needed activity that most of us ignore.

    First, lets start with proper storage. It is suggested to never store medications in your bathroom. The warm, damp environment can cause medications to break down. A dark, dry environment is better for storage. When choosing a location, make sure it is out of reach of children. A locked box may also be a good option.

    Daily medication organizers are an inexpensive way to keep track of medications. When you start to organize your medications, you may notice that you have some that are outdated or you no longer take.

    Lucas County has drop boxes located throughout the county where you can safely dispose of unwanted medications. For a complete list for of these locations, please go to, and click on the icon for Heroin and Opiate Initiative.

    If you are a senior interested in learning more about proper storage and disposal of medications, as well as other wellness topics, Harbor can help. WISE (Wellness Initiative for Senior Education) will be oered again in 2015 at various locations in Lucas County. To nd locations, or for information on bringing WISE to your site, please contact Carrie Arndt at 419-270-6595.

    The Hancock County Historical Museum is a privately-funded, non-profit history mu-seum founded in 1970 by five Findlay residents to collect and preserve the rich history of Hancock County. The Museum is located in the Hull-Flater House at 422 West Sandusky Street, and first opened to the public in 1971. An addition was built in 1985, serving as an exhibit center and meeting area while also housing the archives and museum collections. A barn was constructed behind the museum, currently displays exhibitions about transporta-tion and agricultural life in Hancock County. The Crawford Log House, originally built in Biglick Township, was moved behind the barn completing the museum structures housed on Sandusky Street.

    Wolcott House, Maumee

    The roots of the Maumee

    Valley Historical Society extend back to 1864 when a group of early pioneers and entrepre-neurs came together to form the Maumee Valley Pioneer As-sociation. Their stated purpose to protect the historic artifacts of the Maumee Valley and to document the history of the early settlers for future generations.

    By 1918, as many of the original members passed on, the group evolved into the Historical Society of Northwest, with the mission stated to acquire books; encourage the writing of manuscripts; deliver lectures on historical subjects; to collect objects of historical interest and provide for their preservation and exhibition and, impor-tantly, to provide a museum to house their collections.

    This last goal would be realized in 1957 when Rilla Hull, the last descendant to live in the Wolcott family home would leave the building and grounds to St. Pauls Episcopal Church with the hope that it would become a museum to honor the early settlers of the Maumee Valley. St. Pauls lacked the resources to operate a museum. However, visionary members of the church along with the HSNO, and the local Maumee Historical Society, devised an arrangement where the church would sell the property to the City of Maumee and the two societies would merge as the Maumee Valley Historical Society to restore, interpret and manage the new Wolcott House Museum.

    The house has expanded to include the operation of a six building museum com-plex and a broad range of educational, cultural and historical programs. Pub-lishing an annual collection of historical reminiscences, the Society publishes the highly regarded Northwest Ohio History and each year plays host to hundreds of school children and adults who tour the buildings and are introduced to the rich history of the Maumee Valley.

    McCourtie ParkThis 42 acre historic estate which contains 17 sculpted cement

    bridges as well as three tennis courts, fenced ball diamond and a picnic area. The park is truly picturesque and includes a winding river and two ponds.

    Around 1930, cement tycoon W. H. L. McCourtie hired Mexican artisans George Cardoso and Ralph Corona to construct seventeen bridges on his property. The bridges and other constructions are in the style of el trabeio rustico, the Mexican folk tradition of sculpting concrete into faux wood. The artisans built the bridges with steel rod frameworks and then sculpted concrete to resemble planed lumber, rough logs, thatch and rope. Two concrete trees that stand on the property are still used as chimneys.

    For those who find themselves as caregivers to a loved one, discussing end-of-life care can be stressful and challenging for everyone involved, especially when the caregiver is not sure where to begin with deciding the right option for their loved one.

    I think most people who make that decision early on have a better quality of life towards the end of their life, said Dr. Sanjiv Josh, MD, MPH, a sPro-Medica pecialist in Family and Palliative Medicine.

    Executive Director at Hospice of Northwest Ohio Judy Seibenick under-stands the difficult position caregivers go through when they reach this point in a patients life.

    Questions to Answer;First, we would advise them to have a conversation with their doctor about

    what the expected course of the disease is, said Seibenick. Do they want to continue to pursue treatment and if so, how much will that help them? Will the rigors or side effects of treatment be detrimental to their quality of life? What are their goals for how they wish to spend the rest of their life? If they no longer wish to seek a cure, hospice is an excellent care option.

    According to Dr. Josh, hospice comes on board when the patient has a life expectancy of less than six months; in which case two physicians have to agree on that prognosis. Terminal illnesses such as kidney failure, congestive heart

    failure, cancer, dementia and HIV/AIDS are some of the many reasons why some-ones life nears to its end. Hospice sets out to treat the symptoms, not the cause.

    Hospice in the home or a facility Many hospices, like Hospice of Northwest Ohio, provide not only the medical

    needs for the patient, but also the spiritual and emotional needs for each patient and their family. Keep in mind that this quality of care can be provided wherever the loved one calls home, including a long-term care facility or assisted living center.

    Most patients can live in their own homes, with hospice staff making periodic visits to provide nursing care, personal care from an aide and a variety of other services that both patients and families find helpful, said Seibenick.

    Hospice in the home provides all of the medications and medical equipment needed for the care of the patient. Instruction is provided at every visit, which include the caregivers receiving printed information and 24/7 access to a hospice nurse.

    Patients can move from hospice in the home to a hospice inpatient center, espe-cially if the patient requires around-the-clock monitoring and care, as the situation progresses.

    A lot of people are afraid that hospice is going to help them die. And thats not true. Hospice helps them in their dying, Dr. Josh. Hospice really is not an institution or a building. Its a philosophy which means a focus on palliation.

    As always, talk to you general practitioner on which option is best for you or your loved one.

    A Timeless Treasure:Mayberry Well Make Your Day

    Favorite foods transcend timeBy Kathleen M. Bresnahan-Dewar




    At the Mayberry Diner, theyll greet you with a smile and they mean it! But wait until you try the food. Start out with Aunt Bs Breakfast, a popu-lar favorite at the Mayberry. It features a dish of eggs, hash browns and onions, scrambled together and topped with homemade sausage gravy & cheese. Or perhaps go for the Late Day Spe-cial and enjoy a hamburger, fries, and shake for $6.99 from 1-3 p.m. There are choices for all appetites Healthy Starts, protein breakfasts, wraps, burg-ers, sandwiches, soups, salads, and even Tammys parents homemade pies! They have it all.

    For the past fourteen years, own-ers Scott & Tammy Super have been actively involved in providing tasty and healthy food at great prices to the diner community. Tammys inspira-tion to join the restaurant industry be-gan years ago when she worked as a server/waitress. She researched everything about running a business and taking that first step.

    That first step happened in 2001 when Scott & Tam-my opened up their first diner in May-berry Square near Centennial Rd. in Sylvania. The area was growing and the new Mayberry Plaza was built. Its all about location, they said. Success followed, and, in

    2006, they opened their second May-berry Diner on Byrne (prior home to the restaurant, Jacks Place), where they greeted a following of customers. This location has a great south-end feel and all fell into place, said Scott. The most recent Mayberry Diner opened in 2013 on Sylvania Ave. across from Davis College. It was a no brainer when we picked this location, both agreed. We both knew we wanted to be along Mon-roe Street because it offers good access to all the roads.

    From the beginning, the Supers wanted to create a comfortable dining experience suitable for all ages. We want to be who we are and not some-thing we are not. My motto is KISS.... Keep It Simple and Stupid. We are not reinventing the wheel, said Tammy. All three locations feature an old-fashioned blue and white tiled counter with swiv-

    el chairs, booths, tables and chairs. A photo collage adds character and warmth to the dining room.

    Aside from owning and managing three restaurants, Scott & Tammy are raising

    family and enjoying life. As time allows for vacations, the family enjoys Key West for some fun in the sun. So, whats in store

    for the future of the Mayberry diners? Our dreams and goals

    always include a goal of five perhaps expanding and adding in the years ahead, they shared. Only good news for those of us who en-

    joy great food and great service.

    Pumpernickels Comes Backto the Old West End

    The best is backby Pat Nowak

    Owning a successful restaurant is always so risky. You build it up, watch it grow and gain a loyal following. Then an interesting job opportunity comes along and you decide that it would be easy to try to do boththat is the saga of Pumpernickels.

    Dennis Lange owned a successful coffee shop in the Hamilton Building offering great home-made sandwiches and baked goods. He was encouraged by friends to think bigger and when a space became available in 1995 he (with help from Neighborhood in Partnership) opened a restaurant on the corner of Delaware and Colling-wood and named it Pumpernickels.

    There was no magic to the name he saw a restaurant in Saugatuck with the title and loved it; hence the decision was easy. The restaurant flour-

    Find Pumpernickels onFacebook or 419-244-2255

    ished, often catering to people wanting lunch from downtown Toledo. Then the inevitable happened. Lange received an offer from the Board of Elections and he continued working both jobs; hiring a manager for the restaurant.

    After the manager quit six months later he sold the restaurant and the purchaser con-tinued to operate it for a few months and then turned the prop-erty into a day care. Pumpernickels ceased

    to exist. Dennis worked at several jobs and then retired from the state and decided perhaps it was time to resurrect Pumpernickels.

    Christine Jones from Black Kite Cof-fee, a business neighbor of Langes loca-tion urged him to reopen but funding proved to be a challenge. Banks are reti-cent to loan to small businesses and the red tape can be insurmountable. Lange

    prevailed and opened for a Jiggs dinner on March 14th serving over 100 people.

    He is heartened by the steady flow of local residents and cus-tomers that have returned and he hopes to expand shortly. He is putting together a crowdfunding effort to purchase a new hood and when installed will allow him to serve breakfasts on Sat-urday.

    He is excited about plans to host special parties, and possibly supper club events on certain nights. His dreams have come full circle and he is exhilarated by the positive reaction. Pumpernickels phone is 419-244-2255. He is looking forward to helping the Old West End Festival and Lucas County Fair in his free time.

    Harbor began as the Luella Cum-mings Home, which first operated as a school and also as The Girls Protection Agency in May 1913. The agency was named after Mrs. Luella Cummings, the first president of the Board of Trustees, upon her death in 1914. The agencys main goals were to provide assistance and education to neglected, dependent, and underprivileged girls. The school provided science training and was ac-credited by Toledo Public Schools. which provided the school with teach-ing staff. Residents of the school attend-ed local high schools or participated in

    employment internships, predominant-ly in domestic service or childcare.

    The Luella Cummings Home-starkly contrasted the operations of asy-lums and orphanages at the time. The schools founding coincided with the development of the Juvenile Court sys-tem in Toledo a time when city offi-cials began to see the impact of povertys effects on its youngest citizens. The or-ganization modeled trends and policies in child welfare and social work and was known as a progressive institution.

    Pre 1920 In its early days, girls were referred

    to the school by agencies such as the Child Welfare League and the Juvenile Court which then opened up to re-ferrals from families, schools, and other social service agencies. The Luella Cum-mings home first operated as a basic res-cue home, boarding women as old as twenty-five with the goal of short-term assistance. Policy soon changed and the home began to focus on girls aged four-teen to eighteen, who would stay for an average of several years. With donations from individuals, churches, and the To-ledo Community Chest (which would later become United Way), the schools curriculum was able to expand and eventually include college preparatory courses. The Luella Cummings Home even implemented a summer camp in 1918 merged with the Zucker Center and the Mental Hygiene Clinic

    In 1981, the Luella Cummings School joined forces with the Ralph E. Zucker Center. Until that time, the Zucker Center had operated as a facil-ity that served children and adults with mental handicaps. The Center offered psychological and diagnostic testing for families. It was through this merger that

    the organization began to truly meet the diverse mental health needs of Toledos population. Operations improved when the organization by acquiring the Men-tal Hygeine Clinic (MHC), which had been in operation since 1941. Harbor Behavioral Healthcare formed in 1995 as the result of the merger. The Harbor Foundation was also formed at this time and eventually all were combined under one banner in 2009.

    Steve Benjamin, Vice President of Youth and Family Services at Harbor credits constant innovation of programs and services when it comes to Harbors staying power. Harbor consistently uses evidenced best practices to help people address their goals, he said. Our most recent growth is through our new rela-tionship with ProMedica in which we will continue to innovate using the best techniques and innovations available.

    was a big deal,

    Cover Story

    MOTORHEADSLocal Craftsmen Turn Transportation into Art

    by Chris Watson Photos by MiChaEL nEMEthIf what you drive makes you smile, Chris states

    with emphasis, then you have a winner. This is from the guy who built the Batmobile for both of Tim Bur-tons Batman movies(Warner Brothers 1989, 1992) .

    For Dixon it all started with model cars as a kid. He went into the service as an aircraft mechanic which cemented his love of all things mechanical. It was just a hobby, Dixon states. After the service he moved into the building trades which involved fabrication techniques. In 1979, an on the job injury turned the avocation into a profes-sion. I have been very blessed that so many customers have trusted me to build them some very nice cars.

    His first foray into car show judging came, naturally, as a contestant. In the 70s I entered a car I had customized in an ISCA (International Show Car Association) event. I ended up best rod in the nation and 5th overall for the year. From there Chris began to judge car shows across the country. I would do 20 or so shows for the ISCA in the winter and a dozen or so shows for Super Chevy Events during the summer. As a paid judge he made a living.

    Still, it was his custom jobs that made his reputation. Well, obviously do-ing the Batmobile for two movies was a big deal, he claims. I also did The

    Penguins duck car, he says, a bit more muted. His reputation, along with numerous wins and credentials, kept him building cars his entire career.

    Everyday Ride: 97 Buick Park AvenueFavorite Car worked on: 1956 Thunderbird. Purple paint and interior. I built it for my wife, Dixon says. It was the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association custom 1992 Rod of the Year.

    Dream Car: I just dont have one, claims Dixon. Everything that I have is all that I need.

    Chris DixonNational Auto Show JudgeCustom Auto BuilderSemi RetiredWounded Knee Motors

    We sent three cars to the moon (and several little cars to Mars). Throw in a unique paint job or custom restoration and happiness is just one four barrel carburetor or glass pack muffler away. Our vehicles are more than just mere transportation. They allow us to express ourselves as individuals. They are our con-stant companions , whether pacing along quietly in our mundane daily tasks or grandly chauffeuring us to the best moments of our lives.

    For some cars have become more than a hobby or even passion. Cars have become a profession that is the outward expression of great inner spirit. Here in NorthwestOhio we are blessed with a myriad of these craftsmen; people who look at a ve-hicle not as an engine with tires, but as a blank canvas for creating art.

    The four men profiled here have spent their entire lives with cars. Spanning generations of auto manufacturing, technology, and style trends they find esthetics in function and beauty in a frame with four doors. These men are where heavy metal meets fine art. Their work has been sought after nation-ally and featured in television, rac-ing, museums, and film. None of that seems to drive these guys, how-ever. They love cars and they love what they do. Above all they live right here and have been good, if not showy, neigh-bors their whole lives.

    We love our rides. The bigger, faster, louder and more elaborate the better.
